Intermediate Gods

    Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone 
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, Gods of Action Movies (Arnold: Arnold Strong, Der Governator, Ahnold, Arnie) (Sylvester: Sly)
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: Both of them shirtless, holding up machine guns.
  • Alignment: *insert law scale here* Good
  • Portfolio: Action Hero, One-Man Army, Lots of shooting, Pre-Mortem One-Liner, Heroic Build, The Ahnold (named after Arnold, but sometimes both are targeted, Papa Wolf (Arnold)
  • Domains: Theater, War, Justice
  • Avatar of: The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian, Douglas Quaid (Arnold) Rocky Balboa, John Rambo (Sylvester)
  • Allies: Chuck Norris, Jackie Chan, André the Giant
  • Oppose: Damon Killian, child abusers
  • There was one time that they descended to the mortal realm during the religious event that is Contra, in which they agreed to pose as the mortals' models for the hero. Thus, Bill Rizer and Lance Bean became avatars of Arnold and Sylvester.
  • If you see Arnold with a kid, don't mess with the kid or Arnold will fuck you up so hard you're gonna need more coffins to bury your remains.
    • Note that while we never see Sylvester do it with a kid, it's not a good idea to assume that he doesn't do it.
  • One day, while Sylvester was busy eating cookies in the House of Food, Arnold called him, but Sylvester was still munching his cookie (not on purpose), causing Arnold to yell "PUT THAT COOKIE DOWN!". That line became a hit and it was adapted by the House of Music into a Stupid Statement Dance Mix.
    • Turns out that Arnold was trying to warn Sly that Revolver Ocelot had poisoned one of the cookies. Good thing Sly put it down before it's too late.
  • Once, a fight was organized to see who was stronger. It ended in a double KO.
  • After stumbling upon Excalibur's theme song, Arnie immediately passed down a law in California to NOT let Excalibur enter the state, for the sake of his and the people of California's sanity.
  • While Ben Richards hasn't ascended yet, the villain of The Running Man has, and approached Arnold to become a co-host of Pantheonic version of his game show as he could just see the enhanced appeal of such a Celebrity Endorsement (even if by a guy who played his killer). He preferred not to have any involvement with it at all, and Stallone also rejected Killian's invitation.
  • Arnie is also known for his gigantic "SHUT UUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPP!!!!"
  • Stallone was also known to have once possessed the rights to portray Judge Dredd. However, due to the lackluster reception, even Stallone can understand why Dredd would rather forget that one time he showed his face to the public, even if it was Sly's face. (Arnie also has a deity who wouldn't admit being played by him in Mr. Freeze)
    • With his signature characters Rocky and Rambo ascending, Sly is happy to finally be directly represented in the Pantheon.
  • Arnold has big preference on chopper's for aerial transportation. He tends to tell people to "GET TO DA CHOPPA"
  • Arnold grimaced to find André the Giant in the House of Combat. Why do you ask? He explained that the two found themselves at the same town and decided to go out for dinner. However, André was known to insist on paying for all meals he was in, and Arnold tried to do the paying once while André was in the bathroom. When the giant found out, he carried Arnold away like he was a child and went to pay the bill. Needless to say, no one has ever tried the trick after that. In the meantime, many of the taller deities are volunteering to replace Wilt Chamberlain in a recreation of this picture.
  • The extraterrestrial deities who were unfortunate enough to watch Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot went to Stallone to say he was right in calling it "one of the worst films in the entire solar system".
  • Sly is grateful that Jensen "Frankenstein" Ames likes him, as one of his first big roles was being the main competitor of the original Frankenstein, and he would not like to be the target of an intergenerational (or inter-remake) grudge.

    Christian Bale and Tom Hardy 
Christian Charles Philip Bale and Edward Thomas 'Tom' Hardy, The Gods Who Undergo Radical (And Insane) Changes For Their Roles
Left: Christian Bale; Right: Tom Hardy
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: A Photo Of Hardy and Bale As Bane and Batman
  • Alignment: Varies, Depending On The Role
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: British/Welsh Actors, Films, Heroes and Villains
  • Ascended Characters:
  • Other roles:
  • Allies: Most of the House of Theatre and Spectacle, Adam West
  • Enemies: Who doesn't like these two?
  • Honorary Membership In: House of Heroes and Leadership for Christian, House of Crime for Tom, House of Villains for both men.
  • In General:
    • Plans to ascend both men into the Pantheon had began following Christian Bale and Tom Hardy's portrayals of Batman and Bane in Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, of which Hardy's portrayal of Bane was met with great acclaim. In the one time that both men agreed on anything, Batman and Bane themselves had put forth their endorsements, Bane being a fan of Hardy's work, while Bruce enjoys Bale's films, quite possibly the only thing those two agree on.
    • In fact, the first visitor to their temple was Bane himself, who shook Hardy's hand and thanked him for doing his character justice on the big screen. "Gracias, Señor Hardy. Gracias." Hardy was thankful of the praise, given that he was a fan of the comics. While people tend to rip on Hardy for not adopting Bane's signature accent, Bane found it...interesting, yet amusing and menacing at the same time. The downside is that Hardy had actually damaged his body whilst bulking up for the role of Bane.
    • Both men played their fair share of villains, the most infamous being that of Patrick Bateman and Walter Wade for Bale, whereas Hardy's known for playing the Kray Twins and Bane. For their works, both men were given honorary membership in the House of Villains.
  • Christian:
    • Met Adam West in the Pantheon the day after his ascension. Like many others, Bale mourned his mortal passing. He was also humbled when Adam praised his portrayal of Batman in the Dark Knight Trilogy.
    • Sean Bean was the next person who visited Bale. Both men worked together in Equilibrium, and congratulated Bale on his ascension. Sean also voiced his desire to work with Hardy on a film project (and one hopefully where he doesn't die in). Hardy look forward to the day.
    • Bale received an unexpected visitor...make that four in the form of the March sisters. Turns out that one of Bale's acting gigs was that of 'Laurie' Lawrence in the 1994 film version of Little Women. The March sisters were expecting a boy, but instead found a grown man. Had it not been for the fact that Bale is a happily married man, then the sisters would've tried their best to court him for their own.
    • Pocahontas gives Bale odd looks whenever he is around her. Maybe it's because he sounds a lot like Thomas, who was John Smith's best friend and fellow colonist.
  • Tom:
    • For the record, Hardy considers his role of Shinzon as his Old well as his Berserk Button. The last person who had mentioned that to Hardy, he donned the Bane mask and broke the poor schmuck's spine. Picard agrees it's best left forgotten.
    • Most of the members of the House of Crime and House of Villains are huge fans of Hardy, given his portrayals of the Kray Twins and Charles Bronson (the prisoner, not the actor). So much so that the deities of the House of Crime has made Hardy an honorary member of both houses, with all the privilages.
    • His role of Mad Max had won him recognition on par with his portrayal of Bane. The post-apocalyptic deities (i.e., The Courier, The Sole Survivor, the Four Hokuto Brothers, to name a few) love the film so much so that there is an unspoken rule that none of the deities harm Hardy.
    • The Venom Symbiote has become excited whenever Hardy got by, as the actor is the closest to his soulmate Eddie Brock in the Pantheon.

    Kenji Fujikido/Ninja Slayer 

Kenji Fujikido, God of Introductory Awesomeness (Ninja Slayer, The Machine of Vengeance, Bane of Soukaiya)
  • Theme Song: Back in Black; Naraku Within (whenever he's in battle)
  • Intermediate God
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, though he will not align himself with evil beings.
  • Symbol: A stylized version of his face engraved on a red shuriken
  • Porfolio: Ninja who Hunts Other Ninja, Big Entrances and Exits, Red Is Sorta Heroic, Struggling to Fight with an Inner Evil, Seeking Revenge and Enjoying It, Complete Lack of Subtlety in Ninjitsu, YEEART!
  • Domains: Wrath, Vengeance, Possession, Death
  • Allies: Ryuko Matoi & Senketsu, Scorpion, Naruto Uzumaki, Ragna the Bloodedge, Torin, Garterbelt, Inferno Cop, Afro, Kratos, Batman, The Bride, Guts
  • Neutral Towards: Any ninja who is good or has good leanings
  • Enemies: Any ninja who is evil or has evil leanings, Quan Chi, Naraku, Diavolo
  • Not So Different From: Sasuke Uchiha
  • Unknown Rival: Might Guy
  • Fujikido Kenji was the victim of an attack that resulted in his wife and child killed. He would have been permanently dead as well had it not been for a ninja soul called Naraku Ninja. Thanks to that, Fujikido has become the ruthless Ninja Slayer. Everytime he gets involved in battle, things will get violent and hammy (the latter mostly because Ninja Slayer usually is the one to introduce himself to his foes before they start battling).
  • The former High Priest of Ragna the Bloodedge, Ninja Slayer made his entrance to the Pantheon with an explosive entrance and followed up his greeting by screaming "YEARRT!" and assaulting some poor ninja mook, cuing another explosion. He was given the title of Incoming Ham almost instantly after that.
  • Currently on a quest to kill every evil ninja in the Pantheon. Several have told him to forgo vengeance, but he's not budging. What he doesn't know is that they're trying to tell him that he's in a place where Death Is Cheap.
  • Even though his temple is in the House of Theater, he spends part of his time (aside from fighting other ninjas, obviously) stealing sushi from the House of Food and resting in various other locations where not much is happening. Many have reported to seeing birds perch on his scarf every so often.
  • The only kind of people he hates more than evil ninjas are those who hurt children, as well as those who pick on the innocent. Doing so will incur his wrath and bring about an excruciatingly painful death.
  • One of the only ninjas he's on good terms is Scorpion, who also knows the feeling of losing those he loves and trying to avenge them. He also likes his use of his grappling rope, which reminds him of his spear. The fact that he's technically undead curbs any remaining ill will Ninja Slayer has for the specter.
    • Another ninja he has befriended is Naruto, whose actions of heroism have changed his opinion on ninjas. Naruto himself thinks that Ninja Slayer can make peace with his Enemy Within, much like his resolve with Kurama.
  • Is well aware of Sasuke's descent into madness for reasons similar to his, though he doesn't feel like Jumping Off the Slippery Slope anytime soon.
  • Hates Naraku, since he shares the same name as the force inside him who's trying to make him give into his bloodlust. There's something else that he doesn't like him, but he doesn't know what...
    • Another person that he despises is Diavolo, whose plans to kill his daughter completely go against his quest to avenge his family's deaths.
    • Despite sharing the same voice as Naraku and Diavolo, Ninja Slayer gets along much better with Torin, who's trying to make him abandon his quest for revenge and use his powers for more altruistic reasons.
  • Guy is currently preparing a match between him and Ninja Slayer to see who's better at making a Dynamic Entry, though Ninja Slayer hasn't really been paying that much attention to him compared to some of the other ninjas.
  • Has been noted to sound like a few others, most of all like Garterbelt. When the priest heard about the similarities in their voices, he hired Ninja Slayer to hunt ghosts, and he obliged. On one of his missions he found Scanty and Kneesocks having sex, to which he promptly responded:
  • Found a good friend in Inferno Cop, who sympathizes him for reasons similar to his own. The two often have friendly sparring matches, complete with explosions, though most who watch them fight have no idea what they're watching.
  • At some point in time, he came to hear of Guts, another man driven by revenge who has fought evil in a terrible world and had to deal with his own Enemy Within that wants to turn Guts into an absolutely ruthless killing machine. Both Guts and Ninja Slayer have become fairly good friends due to that, though the latter wonders if the world that Guts resides from is potentially even in a worse state than Neo-Saitama.
  • Some have pointed out that he is a bit similar to Batman, Kratos, and The Bride, in addition to the aforementioned Scorpion and Ragna. Ninja Slayer is on good terms with them, partially since vengeance served as a key factor in their own adventures.
  • While no one has asked him yet, he has made it clear that he doesn't want to join the White Hats. He's an assassin, not a hacker.
  • YEEART! explosions

    Asagi Asagiri 
Asagi Asagiri, Goddess of Alternating Voice Actresses (The Wandering Protagonist)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Pair of handguns and a large flail
  • Theme Song: Asagi GO FIGHT!, Asagi Metamorphism, Rockin' Princess, Asagi My Love, White Canvas (after the success of her fan club)
  • Alignment: Seemingly changes between Neutral Good and Chaotic Neutral (actually just Neutral Good)
  • Portfolio: The Unreleased Star, Guns Akimbo, Constantly Changing Voices, Split Personality and/or Multiple Asagis (Actually just the latter), She WILL Get Her Game, Early-Bird Cameo, Pretty in Mink, Bonus Boss
  • Domains: Guns, Cameos, Unreleased Games, Voices
  • Followers: Many other characters who have a change in actors.
  • Allies: Killia, Usalia, Seraph Lamington(?), Adell, Rozalin, Flonne, The Prinnies, Valvatorez, Nova Terra, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, Muse (Partiuclarly Kotori Minami, one of her voice actresses), Teana Lanster, Mami Tomoe, Noel Vermillion
  • Opposes: Zetta
  • For a long time, Asagi was hailed as the Goddess of Vapor Ware, and eventually ended up in The Fallen, but was moved to the Purgatory due of the support of her fans. Everyone waited for the arrival of the fabled Makai Wars... until one day, Asagi decided to try to take over the House of Gaming, demanding that she needs proof of that. What was weird was that Asagi was also in the Purgatory at the same time. Eventually the Asagi got sick of waiting and almost blew up House of Gaming... until she got shot by another Asagi.
    • As it turned out the third Asagi was the real Asagi. She then explained that all of her supposed Hostile Show Takeovers, the reason why she was thrown in the Fallen, was not her doing, as she has been stuck in Veldime due of a curse placed by Zetta what prevents her from becoming the main character until she becomes stronger. Instead, all of the Asagi cameos outside of Makai Kingdom, Disgaea 2 and Disgaea 5 were clones who have been trying to take over her spot as the true Asagi. When judges noticed that how different the real Asagi is for the clones, they decided to release the Asagi from Purgatory (Identified as "Prinny Asagi") and placed the real Asagi in the Pantheon.
  • If her title wasn't clear, she has had many, many different seiyuus voicing hernote . And while most of them are due of her many clones, not even the real Asagi can decide on one voice.
  • Nova Terra was rather glad to see that she managed to finally find her way out of the Purgatory, even if she doesn't have her game yet. Asagi was happy to hear about the compliments.
  • She gets along with other magic-oriented gunwomen like Teana, Mami and Noel.
  • The Cutie Mark Crusaders were a little upset that they had to say good bye to the Asagi they've known for so long. especially since said Asagi turned out to be rather heroic and sympathetic, clone or not. That said, they still ended up befriending the real Asagi and will continue to support as they did her clone, congratulating her on her ascension and hoping that she eventually gets her game. Asagi herself is touched by their kindness and sees their newly earned Cutie Marks as an inspiration and hope for her future game.
  • To say that she hates Zetta would be an understatement. Not only did he get her game cancelled and got her stuck in Veldime for a very long time, but his actions ultimately lead to her clones running lose among the Nippon Ichi multiverse and the Pantheon. Zetta doesn't really understand how any of that is his fault.
  • There was a long-lasting question how one of her Evilities, "Main Character R.", works. As in, what does it means to one be an Overlord? After some testing, it turns out it means that the target needs to have a title of Overlord note .
  • After years of her not getting her game, she seemed to have finally gotten her chance... as a mobile game. Her opinion can be summed as "Screw it, I take it regardless."

    Kaori Ishihara and Yui Ogura 
Kaori Ishihara and Yui Ogura, Goddesses of Shared Voice Acting Roles (Yuikaori)
  • Lesser Goddesses
  • Symbol: A puppy and a bunny wearing headsets
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Relationship Voice Actor, Moe, Idol Singer
  • Domains: Acting, Dialogue, Theatre
  • Allies: Those that use Kaori and Yui's voices:
  • If Kaori Ishihara has been in a role, chances are high that Yui Ogura will be right there with her because; together the both of them have been in around 20 roles together.
  • Many other deities are really glad to finally find out why they sound like other deities. This has made the other deities think that a human gives them their voice and does the sames for other characters.
  • Kaori and Yui often hold concerts in the house of music as their idol group, Yuikaori.
  • Many deities were surprised to find that Yui can match Hatsune Miku's dancing perfectly, when asked about this Yui said that she's Miku mo-cap actress. The two can sometimes be seen dancing together.
  • Both Kaori and Yui have been seen by many deities getting along well with several of the other seiyuus and voice actors of the pantheon such as Nana Mizuki, Norio Wakamoto and Mel Blanc.

    Krusty the Clown 
Herschel Schmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofsky, God of Jaded Performers (Krusty the Clown, Rory B Bellows)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A pacemaker scar across his chest
  • Alignment: True Neutral (Neutral Good in a really good mood)
  • Portfolio: Jaded Actors, Crusty Exteriors with Soft Interiors, Grumpy Bear, Depraved Kids' Show Host as a result of his Fantasy-Forbidding Father, Used To Be As Jovial as His Persona, Sad Clown, Dirty Middle-Age Man, Mood-Swinger, Doesn't Know How To Spend, Non-Ironic Clown (sort of), OSHA hates him
  • Domains: Suffering, Trade, Trickery
  • Followers: Baby Herman
  • Allies: Bart Simpson (for saving him on numerous occasions), Homer Simpson (for saving his life once), Lisa Simpson, Kyle Brofloski, N, Pacifica Northwest, K.K.Slider, Mario, Luigi, Nigel West Dickens, Norma Desmond, Cinderella, Rubella
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Mr Burns, Dracula
  • Rivals: Tom and Jerry
  • Enemies: Sideshow Bob (for both framing him and trying to kill him), The Joker, Needles Kane, Kefka (for the bad image they give clowns), Bowser and his son, Billy, abusive parents (especially Lady Tremaine), Dr Eggman, Vito Corleone
  • Opposes: Tommy Wiseau, Nero, Chester A Bum
  • Opposed by: The House of Food, Ned Flanders, Billy
  • In public, Krusty the Clown is a jovial clown, Friend to All Children and general fun guy. This is an act; Krusty the Clown (true name Herschel Krustofsky) is a bitter, jaded celebrity. Though once passionate about being a clown, the decades of the job have made him a cynic and general sell-out.
    • He is allies towards the Simpson family for helping his business, his family issues, getting him out of jail and even saving his life. Granted, he often forgets this, but hey, what are you gonna do.
    • Sideshow Bob hates Krusty's guts, due to wasting his talent on being a sideshow. Despite literally being at each other's throats, Krusty at least gets his ratings to skyrocket when it happens.
    • He's a member of the Springfield Republican Party, along with Mr Burns and(of all people) Dracula. Dracula doesn't try to bite him, since all the drugs make his blood toxic to vampires.
  • Because of his Jewish background, he gets along with Kyle Brofloski. You can also usually see him have a drink with Norma Desmond, mainly out of pity.
  • Despite his jaded personality, Krusty actually likes being a clown. Even if it hurts, he wants to make people laugh. It's for this reason he abhors The Joker, Needles Kane and Kefka for making clowns scary. He is determined to improve that image, while Billy freaking out at him serves as a motivator.
    • Gets along with Linkara due to wanting to break out of the Monster Clown stereotype. He also likes K.K. Slider, who's passion for the art he loves remind Krusty of his younger, more optimistic days.
    • Due to his lack of passion, a lot of his merchandise is hazardous. Even his trademark Krusty Burger cannot be analyzed for what its made of, and half the time ends in stomach pumping; he had to be barred from the House of Food for this. However, even he thinks Dr Eggman's amusement parks are a danger to everyone (though this is probably just him trying to get rid of the competition).
    • He's been sharing notes with Nigel West Dickens in how to sell crappy merchandise.
  • As a relatively harmless clown, Krusty was allowed to take the spot when he thought he was auditioning for a big-budget Hollywood production called "My Slice of Heaven". He soon realized that he had been tricked when neither Elizabeth Taylor nor any of her ex-husbands showed up to congratulate him, but was happy to learn that his new role moved him to a bigger house (rent-free!)
    • Feeling sorry for him, Rubella decided to comfort Krusty and try to restore his passion in clowning. Together, they plan to improve to PR for clowns everywhere.
  • Krusty spent his childhood being disapproved of by his father, which puts him at odds with the abusive parents of the pantheon(though he'll make exceptions like Homer who actually care for their kids). He hates Lady Tremaine above all of them for her haughtily abusive treatment of Cinderella.
    • Often can be seen protecting the abused N and Pacifica Northwest, who get to have 12% off on any of his products. Well, until Reshiram and Zekrom voiced their opinion and he changed it to 30%.
    • Though the House of Children loves him, there is one child who has become his enemy; Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr wanted Krusty all to himself, and got his dad to steal him away. Krusty spent 200 hours continually entertaining him, sustaining himself only on dark coffee. He'll be forever indebted to Mario and Luigi for saving him.
  • Krusty the Clown considers the likes of Tom and Jerry a threat to his showings of "Itchy and Scratchy", though he remains unaware which came first.
  • Tries to avoid the House of Luck and Fortune as much as he can, due to being a terrible gambler. He had the misfortune of ending up in loan to The Godfather.
  • He doesn't get along with Tommy Wiseau, since the one time he was a guest animator this is what he got. Only Wiseau knows what the Hell was that.
  • Wants Chester A Bum off his property for pestering him and freaking out whenever he sees him(on account of the Bum being scared of clowns).
  • "Hey hey kids, Krusty the Clown's on the Trope Pantheon now!"

    Robert Downey, Jr. 
Robert John Downey, Jr., God of Career Resurrection
  • Theme Song: Back in Black by AC/DC
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Shot Of Downey As Either Tony Stark, Sherlock Holmes, Or Charlie Chaplin. Alternatively, his mug shot
  • Alignment: Originally Chaotic Good, now Lawful Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Acting, Recovered Addicts, Comebacks
  • Ascended Characters Include: Tony Stark/Iron Man, Charlie Chaplin, Sherlock Holmes
  • High Priest: Jackie Earle Haley
  • On Good Terms With: Most of the deified actors and directors, including Samuel L. Jackson (fellow MCU actor), Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Johnny Cage
  • Rivals: BRIAN BLESSED (ham-wise)
  • Enemies: Carol/Mom
  • Johnny Cage once told his ex-wife and daughter, "You can't fake a comeback." In the case of one Robert John Downey, Jr., no truer words were ever spoken. It's because of what he had gone through, surviving addiction, stints in jail and rehab, and once again rising back to prominence on the silver screen, that the Pantheon immediately took notice. The ascension notice came soon after.
  • Tom Hardy knows what it's like to make a comeback. Unlike RDJ, who suffered substance abuse which damaged his career, it was following taking a part in Star Trek: Nemesis that his own career stalled. Interestingly enough, Hardy was slated for the post of Career Resurrection, but declined, opting to share his current position with Christian Bale.
  • Tony Stark's apprehension in having Downey portray himself was evident. Of course, that all changed when the film came out. Even Stark was forced to eat some humble pie and admit that Downey was...perfect for the role. As Cinema Wins put it, he "made this genius billionaire his own." As proof of this, he ad-libbed the "Jericho speech" in the first movie.
    • Sherlock Holmes also holds Downey in high regards (along with his other avatar), due to bringing his exploits on the big screen, which resulted in a positive reception and Holmes' seal of approval. The ongoing debate now is who done the role better: Downey or Cumberbatch.
    • Say what you want about Downey's portrayal of Charlie Chaplin, but the deified Tramp and his granddaughter/High Priestess thoroughly enjoyed Downey's performance.
  • Ocasionally seen locked in ham-to-ham combat with BRIAN BLESSED. While Downey loses most of the matches, it's all in good fun.
  • Endeared himself to the deities who have children as well as the deified children themselves due to his visit to a London children's hospital during the London film premier of Captain America: Civil War.
  • Always wanted to work with Steven Spielberg on a film project. Spielberg would had refused had it been Downey during his earlier phase. But after seeing him make such an impact (and remaining clean and sober), Spielberg is considering the idea of working with Downey.
  • Don't question his shoes. Even gods have height issues to overcome.

    Sean Connery 
Sir Sean Connery, God of Film Improvement and Pointing Guns at the Viewer


    Adam West 
Adam West, God of Those Who Parody Their Roles (The Grey Ghost, Mayor West, TV's Adam West, Catman, The Galloping Gazelle, The Fearless Ferret, Proto, The Bright Knight and many more)
  • Demigod (but revered as an Intermediate God)
  • Symbol: His 1960's Batman outfit
  • Alignment: Neutral Good normally and in his Batman-esque roles, Chaotic Neutral as Mayor West
  • Portfolio: those casted in specific roles and parodying to almost Self-Deprecation levels (Trope Namer). Self-Parody.
  • Domains: Acting, Parodies
  • High Priests: George Takei and William Shatner.
  • Allies: Batman, Bruce Lee, Timmy Turner, Kim Possible, Ron Stoppable, Johnny Bravo, many Star Trek gods. Also has favors from every Batman god, good and bad.
  • One day, Emmet, God of Lego, was preparing another LEGO Batman story, and decided to look into Batman's files. Upon watching and researching the 1960's series of Batman, he decided to get Adam West to come up. Upon seeing Batman, Adam West humbly agreed. Thus Emmet personally built him a temple in the House of Theater, even creating a special level in the LEGO Batman game to replicate the old show.
  • Adam's character fluctuates every now and then. He's either a star of an old show Batman used to watch (Grey Ghost), Mayor of Quahog (Mayor West), an old hero from a kid's show (Catman, Galloping Gazelle or Fearless Ferret), etc. Either way, it's a sight to be hold. The Council of Cloudcuckooland loves him for it.
  • Has met up with Bruce Lee, due to a time during his Batman days when Bruce was a sidekick that went by the name of Kato. When gods learned about this role, they started watching the show again just to see Lee in action absolutely shocked to believe that was Bruce Lee before he became famous. Bruce...would rather not remember that part of his past.
  • Is taken aback by many of the costumes that the Batman Rogue Galley wear: most specifically, he's amazed why the Joker doesn't have a white powdered mustache on. He also wonders why Batman has stopped dancing the Batusi, nor has shark repellent.
  • Whenever there's a production of a super hero parody in the House of Theater, you can bet that Adam West will be there.
  • Fully ascended to the Pantheon on June 9th 2017, leaving behind a worthy legacy and many loved ones. His ascension came with the Main House shining the Batman Signal across the Pantheon underneath a night sky.

Bolt, God of Actor/Role Confusion
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The lightning bolt on his side. Alternatively, his dog collar.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Heroic Dog, Talking Animal, Amplified Animal Aptitude, Older Than They Look, Friends with a Cat and a Hamster
  • Domains: Dogs, Acting
  • Heralds: Mittens, Rhino, Penny
  • Allies: Truman Burbank, Krypto, Pongo & Perdita, Eliza Thornberry, Hammond
  • Enemies: Diana Christensen, Damon Killian, Cruella De Vil, Katz, Claudandus
  • Avoids: Michael Bay, Stanley Kubrick, James Cameron, Adam West, Norma Desmond, Eve Harrington
  • Bolt is the star of his own action-adventure television program where he helps his owner Penny via an assortment of superpowers, including a bark that's far stronger than his bite. As the result of the director's unorthodox methods of making Bolt a great actor, the dog is unable to tell fiction from reality (mainly from the fact that he thinks he can use his powers in the real world) and when the show hits a cliffhanger, he becomes convinced that his owner really is kidnapped and escapes the set. From there, he encounters Mittens, a snarky but troubled cat, and Rhino, a hamster who's an energetic fan of the show and as the three travel to help get Bolt back to Penny, the canine learns that the real world is nothing like the TV show that he's been used to and learns to accept life for what it is.
  • Having gone through a hectic acting career and going on an adventure as a result of it, Bolt isn’t all that interested in revisiting being an actor after getting accepted to the Pantheon, instead more content with living a normal life as a dog alongside his friends. The House of Theater being a place where deities of any kind can get an acting (or possibly forced into a role depending on what happens) has made Bolt a bit apprehensive about revisiting his acting career, though his concerns were mitigated after learning that he wasn’t obligated to take on roles provided there. If something ridiculous was being produced by that place, there’s a good chance he’ll know about it given his prior work in what was ultimately a silly show that got even sillier after the accident at the studio he used to work with.
  • While Bolt himself is able to talk, only other animals (and possibly other non-human entities) are able to understand him, with any typical human only able to hear barks coming out of him. It hasn’t prevented Eliza Thornberry from talking to him when Bolt ended up getting lost in the jungle and while Bolt was surprised to see a human able to talk to him normally, he found her kind attitude welcoming. He learned that Eliza and her family is involved with documenting various animals and while he appreciated her offer of being a temporary companion, Bolt decided that he’s had enough time being in front of the camera and would like to live like a normal pet instead.
  • Truman Burbank heard about another deity who learned about how detrimental being famous can be as a result of external circumstances and even if that deity turned out to be a dog that can’t fully communicate with humans, Truman was willing to meet up with him. Bolt was able to tell that Truman meant well, even if their adventures had a few differences; mainly that what Bolt gone through resulted in him being too much like his fictional character in real life and Truman’s whole life was basically a TV show. The two hang out with each other whenever possible, with Bolt telling his animal friends about Truman and his predicament.
  • Given how demanding the director of his former show was and how it led to Bolt’s real-life adventure, the dog isn’t all that interested in seeing the handful of movie directors that the Pantheon has. He seems more annoyed about Michael Bay than anything since the director has put out films that are similar to (and possibly exceeds) Bolt’s show in terms of over-the-top action and shallow storylines. James Cameron and Stanley Kubrick are additional directors that Bolt wouldn’t want to meet given how their drive to create a successful film isn’t dissimilar to what the director of the Bolt show did (even if their methods apparently aren’t as excessive compared to the Bolt show director).
  • Bolt has nothing but pure contempt towards Diana Christensen, seeing her as an even worse version of the people that were in charge of the network that produced his former show. Bolt made an attempt to storm the UBS building to give her a piece of his mind, but nothing he said got through to her since all she heard was the barks of an annoying dog that should be removed from the place. It was during his time infiltrating the UBS building that he heard of Damon Killian, another prominent network figure who was working with Christensen in the Pantheon and the kinds of high-rated programs that he put out disgusted the dog greatly after hearing of them.
  • As the dog suspected, the Pantheon housed a number of actors, including some from the real world alongside a few from other realities. Bolt is very apprehensive about Eve Harrington and Norma Desmond given the lengths they’ll go to become famous and Bolt has no intention of trying to get back in the spotlight. As for the real-life actors, Bolt doesn’t hold anything against them, though he’s weirded out by Adam West from time to time. The latter (according to Timmy Turner at least) sometimes thinks he’s a superhero known as Catman and seeing Catman in action thinking that trouble is afoot regardless of if there actually is any trouble reminded Bolt of his former behavior in the worst way possible.
  • Upon witnessing a deadly attack on a city and seeing Krypto the Superdog stop that threat, Bolt found it hard to believe that there existed a dog with actual superpowers outside of a fictional show after what he had gone through. It wasn’t until Bolt met Krypto in the latter’s home that the former dog actor wasn’t imagining things, though Krypto was very understanding of Bolt’s predicament after being told about it. Even if Krypto was someone that Bolt imagined what he wanted to be like initially, the two get along for what they are, with or without powers.
  • While Bolt generally gets along pretty well with other dogs in the Pantheon, he’s very good friends with Pongo and Perdita in particular. After learning that Bolt was a former actor, the dalmatians told him a story about how they and the rest of their family had to look for one of their puppies, who happened to admire a canine actor who played a superhero on TV like Bolt once did. They also told Bolt about Cruella De Vil, a deranged woman that’s willing to kill animals (dalmatians in particular) to make a fur coat for herself, though ultimately someone who can be outwitted with enough effort. Bolt has since become a regular conversation partner for the dalmatians and has taken a liking to them overall.
  • His initial dislike of cats was the result of his training to become a skilled actor. It wasn’t until he traveled alongside Mittens that Bolt learned to let go of his dislike for cats. Even with that in mind, there’s a couple of felines that Bolt knows is bad news. Katz, being a serial killer cat with a hatred for dogs, disturbed Bolt greatly, though it was nothing compared to what Bolt learned after eavesdropping on a conversation between Katz and Claudandus. While Bolt was used to combating some crazy schemes in his former show, he was horrified to learn that Claudandus was willing to wipe out humanity so that cats can rule the earth. If Bolt actually had his powers, he would have done something about it, but since that wasn’t the case, the most he could do was leave the felines alone and hope that someone more capable can thwart their schemes.
  • One day, Bolt saw a steel ball roll by itself and followed it around, thinking that it was something from his former TV show. The ball then opened up and revealed a hamster inside, with Bolt willing to talk to it thinking that Rhino would have a friend. To Bolt’s confusion, Hammond only responded with squeaks before the machine translated for Hammond. After learning more about Hammond and Wrecking Ball, the machine Hammond utilizes, Bolt surmised that Hammond would be what would happen if Rhino took his love of the show to a greater extent and has become good friends with him. In turn, Wrecking Ball will sometimes appear to help Bolt whenever the latter is in trouble.

    Brian O'Conner 
Brian O'Conner, God of Characters That Surpassed Their Portrayers
  • Theme Song: "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth.
  • Demigod (Lesser God when teaming up with Dom)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, with Lawful shades
  • Portfolio: Lasting Longer Than His Own Portrayer and Retiring from the Automobile Scene With Praise, Former Protagonists, Nerves of Steel, Showing the Middle Finger, Irish Names, FBI Agents, Obfuscating Stupidity, Becoming the Mask.
  • Domains: Law, Good, Cars, Trickery, Travel
  • Followers: Coach, Graham Jarvis, Agent Philip Jeffries
  • Heralds: Mia Toretto (his wife), Jack (his son), Tej Parker, Roman Pierce (crew members)
  • High Priestess: Sarah Jane Smith
  • Allies: Dominic Toretto, Luke Hobbs (Avatar of The Rock), Kurtis Stryker, Shinnosuke Tomari/Kamen Rider Drive, Kyoichiro Kuroi/Kamen Rider 3, Omar Little, Mulder and Scully, Iroh, Aku, Zato-1/Eddie
  • On Good Terms With: Every Good Deity in the House of Justice
  • Enemies: Every Evil aligned deities in the Houses of Crime and Justice
  • On the Hit List of: Rosco P. Coltrane
  • Annoys: Inspector Clouseau
  • Respects: AJ Styles and the Bullet Club (to an extent)
  • Formerly a detective for the LAPD, Brian was sent undercover to investigate a series of heists later revealed to be the doings of a street racing crew led by Dominic Toretto. However, his work eventually developed into a brotherly bond with Dom and a full-blown relationship with Dom's sister Mia. Ultimately he abandoned his own cover to call for medical attention for a wounded crew member, though this left him on the outs with the Toretto clan for years while he climbed his way into the FBI… until he sacrificed his own career to bust them out of confinement, returning to the family and eventually having a son with Mia.
  • His ascension is unusual, given the final fate of his portrayer. The man who provided his avatar died in a high speed crash, while Brian himself quietly retired with the blessings of the rest of the Toretto crew. He was welcomed by his best friend and honorary brother Dominic, who was overjoyed to see his partner again. Things were a bit strained as Brian was disappointed with his brief Face–Heel Turn:
    Brian: Roman told me what happened with Cipher. I still can't believe you of all people went heel on our guys. You're the one who's always talking about the importance of family.
    Dom: Did he also tell you my son was on the line?
    Brian: He did. But Dom, you could've at least given Letty a heads up before you made your move. Especially if your big counter-plan was to go to the guy who killed Han and ask his family for help.
    Dom: The Shaws had a score to settle with Cipher. I may be a hardass, but if building a bridge with an enemy can benefit my family, I got you in a second. You know that. Besides, you can't tell me you wouldn't have done the same thing for Jack and Mia.
    [Taking a moment, Brian chuckles, conceding the argument.]
    Brian: Yeah. Glad to be one.
  • He's no longer running the streets through automobiles, but he's still good friends with those who run with them, including Dominic, and therefore is now condecorated as an honorary member of the House of Travel.
  • Developed an Odd Friendship with The Rock who shares an avatar with Luke Hobbs, a more recent addition to Toretto's group. While they may not be the same, the wrestler occasionally joins in on the fun. A little muscle couldn't hurt.
  • His position is highly respected and has bipartisan support. Many heroes and villains alike have had their avatars die before the characters could. It's the reason that Iroh and Aku can agree upon the choice.
    • The Doctor is unique in that he is so old, he is forced to regenerate between different avatars. Naturally, many of his older ones are unable to survive his existence. Even his previous forms have to be played by different actors. It gets even weirder when Brian chose companion Sarah Jane Smith as his high priestess. The Doctor was grateful to see his old friend in person once more.
    • Zato underwent a transformation as a result of a death of his voice actor. During that time, the parasite took complete control over him. It was with Brian's help that he was able to truly outlive his creator and become Zato once more.
    • One of the few people who was not pleased with his fate was Inspector Clouseau. It was revealed that due to the death of his avatar, he underwent plastic surgery and became a villain instead. Oddly enough, his reboot version helped alleviate that blemish on his record.
  • O'Conner has a very strong sense of justice, and therefore dislikes corrupt authority figures. As a FBI Agent, he sends every report to the House of Justice. Even when he temporarily worked with criminals, he received a standing ovation when he first entered the area. Even Judge Dredd himself was complimentary towards him... a rare feat indeed.
    • Gets paired with Dirty Harry a lot as a result. Unlike most cops, he has no qualms about breaking the law in order to arrest criminals. Just don't make him admit that Brian's the better driver.
    • Kurtis Stryker likes his rough and tumble style of police enforcement, even if it means getting involved with certain criminals.
    • Not everyone was happy with the ascension. Rosco insists that the man should be arrested for reckless driving. His accusations were met with a steady stream of condemnation, pointing out his own failings as a cop.
    • Miko's strict adherence to the law compels her to arrest the man as well. Unfortunately, her steed is far too slow to ever hope to keep up with his car.
  • Certain Kamen Rider deities respect his driving skills to the point that Kuroi and Tomari are even willing to team up with him. Brian oddly doesn't feel out of place in that world. His world has put him through increasingly outrageous stunts.
  • A rarity among those who work in the House of Justice, Brian is able to move freely in the House of Crime with little difficulty. Much of that help comes from Omar Little, God of Justified Criminals. Some of his followers are associated with the Toretto clan's operations and were happy with Brian's efforts to make them more acceptable citizens. As such, anyone who wants to go after Brian will have to go through Omar. That's a threat no one in that house is willing to defy.
  • One thing that still confuses him are supernatural elements. There was a time when a couple aliens hijacked his vehicle. Thankfully, fellow FBI agents Mulder and Scully were there to help him out. After that adventure, Brian offered his services to them.

The Freaks, Divine Performers of Freakshows
Hans and Frieda
The rest of the Freaks
  • Demideities
  • Symbol: A goblet filled with liquor (which they give to drink by those they consider one of them)
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Freakshow, The Grotesque, True Companions, decent people, but don't mess with any of them or you may very well get a Fate Worse than Death
  • Domains: Circuses, Deformity, Discrimination
  • Heralds: Many of their fellow circus performers
  • Allies: The Phantom of the Opera, Dumbo, Edward Scissorhands, Quasimodo, Belle and the Beast, Luna Vachon
  • Enemies: Gaston, Hans Westergard, Ludwig von Tokkentakker
  • Feared by: Sir Daniel Fortesque
  • In older, less kind days, people born with deformities that severely impacted their daily life and the way they were perceived by others often had sideshow attractions as the only form of employment that would take them. This profile is about a group of such people. Their leader is Hans, a man with dwarfism. He was once smitten with a beautiful acrobat called Cleopatra, who humored him but barely concealed her disgust for him and his "kind" and, alongside her lover, the strongman Hercules, planned to murder him for his money. Hans wised up to Cleopatra's schemes quickly enough and made her pay with the help of his friends, disfiguring her into a "chicken-woman".
  • The Freaks drew the interest of Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, who could relate to the prejudice they had to face, given he himself was a target of virulent mockery due to his disfigured face, which drove him into seclusion. Erik met with Hans and made a business proposal in which he'd sponsor the Freaks' activities if they'd come to live in the Pantheon, a place where they wouldn't face as much discrimination as they did in their world, and help him out with his plans once in a while. Hans decided it was worth a shot.
    • It's not as if Hans and the rest of the Freaks have become Erik's lapdogs, though; Hans is a pretty moral person and deeply regrets Cleopatra's grisly fate despite what she was going to do to him, and the rest of the crew still see him as their leader, not Erik. Hans doesn't always go along with Erik's schemes without question and tries to dissuade him from committing truly evil acts. Since Erik respects Hans, he occasionally listens to him, provided Erik isn't beyond being reasoned with at the moment.
  • Besides the dwarves and leaders of the troupe Hans and Frieda, the group consists of siamese twins Daisy and Violet, a man with no legs called Johnny and another dwarf called Angeleno who are Those Two Guys, several people with microcephaly (called "pinheads" at the time), a hermaphrodite, a man with no arms or legs, an armless woman, a bearded lady who's married to an extremely thin man known as the Human Skeleton, and two women whose unusual bone structure led them to be called Bird Girls. For better or worse, Cleo is also around, in her "chicken-woman" state.
  • Many of their other circus colleagues are also around as Heralds, as they're some of the few people in their universe who treat them as human beings, but their lack of deformities means they don't qualify for this particular godhood. They include Venus, an animal trainer, and Phroso, a clown; these two became a couple after Venus was scorned by Hercules in favor of Cleo. There's also Roscoe, a stuttering clown and Daisy's husband, and Madame Tetrallini, who's a Team Mom to the Freaks.
  • Since the Freaks trade in the circus arts, they often work together with other circus performers in the Pantheon to put on great shows. Dumbo is one performer who drew their special attention and friendship given the baby elephant was derided for having unusually large ears; the Freaks were quick to consider him one of them, and Dumbo was happy to meet other people who celebrate his "defect". Although they skipped part of their ceremony since Dumbo is still a baby and there were some strange effects when he accidentally drank alcohol. Anyway, now a popular highlight of Pantheonic circus shows is having Frieda fly on Dumbo.
  • Edward Scissorhands and Quasimodo are two deities the Freaks are highly protective of, as their appearances have caused them to be shunned by society at large and forced into seclusion, which is something the Freaks strongly relate to. At least Quasimodo was eventually accepted by the people in his world and has a reliable circle of friends, which means the Freaks have to worry about him less than Edward, who never could quite overcome people's fear of him and remained isolated until he got into the Pantheon. The Freaks want to make sure Edward knows he can always rely on them for support.
  • Have great sympathy for the couple of Belle and the Beast. They're not that taken in by the fantasy that The Power of Love can fix an undesirable appearance, but they have great respect for how Belle, a "normal" and beautiful woman, treated the Beast like she would anyone else depending on the context, and freely admit that the Beast's initial behavior wasn't a good one even if it was due to his despair. Since Belle and the Beast were both outcasts in their world, they understand how the Freaks feel to an extent.
  • Conversely, they hate Gaston, whose good reputation stemming from embodying the ideal of masculinity and which overshadowed his bad character for a majority of people reminds them of Hercules in a bad way. Gaston is unsurprisingly disgusted by the Freaks and enjoys spreading libel about Belle and the Beast's alliance with them, which really incenses the Freaks.
  • They've also come to despise Prince Hans Westergard, who manipulated a girl's infatuation with him to achieve his selfish goals, something that reminds the Freaks of what Cleo tried doing to their leader Hans. Hans (the dwarf) is understandably more than a little miffed that he has to share his name with scum like Prince Westergard. And of course, the Prince was all too willing to feed the fears people had about Elsa's unusual powers, which is another thing the Freaks can't forgive him.
  • A certain evil ringmaster by the name of Tokkentakker would have liked for his carnival to include the Freaks, especially after hearing of the fate they dished out to Cleo. His carnival already has quite a line-up of horrifying beings, but he's still fascinated by the cruelty the Freaks are capable of. The Freaks by their turn have no interest in working together with Tokkentakker in any capacity, and would actually prefer to find a way to set his creations, in which they see something of themselves, free.
  • Their ascension was a cause of alarm for Sir Dan Fortesque, who has bad memories of getting attacked by a freakshow's members in his adventures. These Freaks in particular won't attack anyone without provocation, though the horrible fates of those stupid enough to cross them still keep Dan away. There's no way of knowing how they'd react to a literal undead skeleton visibly wielding a sword, after all.
  • They were bemused when the House of Memes came to thank them for creating the "One of Us" meme. For the most part, they're indifferent to the appropriation.
    • Of course, they then learned that there were gods of that trope...The New Day. The meeting was somewhat awkward due to the New Day's positivity, but The Freaks find them very friendly enough to give them tickets to their performances.
      • Another wrestler appeared, this one being Luna Vachon. Luna explained that she used to be part of stable that was based off of them. Luna is quite proud of being freaky and not like many other divas and the Freaks are truly supportive of her.

    Haruo Nakajima 
Haruo Nakajima, God of Rubber Suit Acting (Mr. Godzilla, The Man of a Thousand Monsters)
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The original 1954 Godzilla suit
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: People in Rubber Suits, Kaiju, Toku, Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever
  • Domains: Monsters, Costumes, Acting, Stuntmen
  • Allies: Godzilla, Rodan, Baragon, Ultraman
  • Opposes: King Ghidorah, Hedorah, Gigan
  • Haruo Nakajima is a Japanese actor that began as a stunt actor for a few films such as Seven Samurai before becoming a suit actor for various kaiju-related projects such as the original Godzilla film. He has portrayed Godzilla (and even played some additional monsters during then) until 1972 where he retired from suit acting, but has remained employed at Toho (the company behind Godzilla) for several years and afterwards, attended a number of monster-themed conventions and wrote an autobiography about his life.
  • Some loud noises and stomping came from the House of Theater one day, prompting fears that something dangerous had found its way inside. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that a room was playing some old videos was being too loud, annoying a few deities that were scared for their lives. Some time later, Haruo Nakajima entered the room and joined in on the viewing party, looking back at his career of wearing rubber suits to play giant monsters. This excited some members watching that they wanted Haruo to stick around in the Pantheon, a request that was approved by the higher-ups.
  • As as a result of his experience in playing in kaiju films, Nakajima was able to understand relatively quickly that the monsters in the Pantheon are indeed real and not people in suits (or controlled puppets in some cases). While he's in danger of being caught in an attack by one of Godzilla's enemies much like a regular person, he has a special disdain towards King Ghidorah, Gigan, and Hedorah given how he fought rubber suit versions of them in his career. The real versions of these aforementioned villains don't really care what one person thinks of them and simply consider him to be another victim waiting to be destroyed.
    • Of the various kaiju that Godzilla has encountered, Haruo Nakajima's the closest with Baragon as he was in the Baragon suit four times. Since three of those times, Baragon was changed and given a new name like Neronga or Magular, Nakajima can recognize him no matter how much Baragon changes.
  • Although Ultraman has fought some of the monsters he's played as (including one that he swears was Godzilla wearing a frill), Nakajima is on good terms with the original hero of the Land of Light. Ultraman's human host Shin Hayata has also recalled encountering Haruo Nakajima outside of a rubber suit twice. First was as a comical father scolding his son for wearing a spacesuit when there were fears of a comet potentially colliding with Earth, and then as a cop who tried to shoot one of Hayata's teammates Fuji when she got turned into a giant by an evil alien.
  • On the topic of toku works outside of Godzilla and the Ultra series, he learned about the multitude of Kamen Riders and Sentai heroes from Shin Hayata during one of their conversations. Those particular toku heroes are noted to be far more agile in their suits than a typical monster. Nakajima took it as a sign that suit actors and the stunts they've pulled have come a long way since he took on Godzilla's role back then.
  • Given his expertise in suit acting and being a stuntman, the House of Theater has considered hiring him to play additional monsters for certain productions and have him be a stunt coordinator for some of their projects. As much as he appreciates the idea, it's not something that's going to happen too often.
  • At one point, Nakajima learned from others about different methods of having giant monsters appear on the screen. This led him to meet Andy Serkis, who served as a motion capture consultant for one of Godzilla's adventures. Serkis then provided Nakajima an explanation of what motion capture is and how it works. It came as a bit of a surprise for Nakajima to learn about and see more technologically advanced methods of bringing the characters that he once played to life.
  • Haruo Nakajima is familiar with the risks of suit acting perhaps more than anyone else in the pantheon. He's broken bones, almost drowned, and been burned by pyrotechnics multiple times! Those who are less likely to ridicule the "man-in-suit" technique are often quite impressed with how he never complained much in his career despite the kinds of hell he went through to bring monsters to life in those stuffy and uncomfortable costumes.
  • Some people, mainly those who know about kaiju-based works, have reported seeing Nakajima taking a job at a bowling alley in the Pantheon. As far as that job is concerned within the Pantheon, it's a part-time thing, though he's noted to be popular among those that frequent said bowling alley.

  • It is standard for a Japanese highschool to have many clubs specialized for many different subjects like tea ceremonies, archery, literature, music, or just fooling around. However, what if all the remaining members of a club were to graduate on the same year? That would mean the club would have to be closed down. That would be the fate of Sakuragaoka High School's Light Music Club, were it not for a hot-headed girl named Ritsu Tainaka deciding to seize the position of club president to keep the club alive, dragging her shy and quiet friend Mio Akiyama to the club. They soon recruited the bubbly and childish Yui Hirasawa and the rich and polite Tsumugi Kotobuki to fulfill the minimum member requirement. After reforming their club, they realized that none of them can play an instrument well, and decide to work on improving their music skills... when they're not slacking off, eating sweets and tea, and just hanging around with eachother. A year later, they would receive their fifth member, Azusa Tadakoro, who was initially exasperated at the clubs laziness, but warmed up to them eventually. Eventually, they came up with a name for their band, "Houkago Tea Time".
  • Applies to the group:
    • Yui and Mio arrived at the Pantheon before the other three arrived, with them soon abandoning their old titles to join their friends. Their ascension would initially be a rather smooth an uneventful one, if it weren't for the members of Dethklok approaching them, incredulous about a bunch of cute girls appearing, and asked them for a musical duel. The girls, intimidated by their looks and attitude, nonetheless accepted their challenge. At the House of Music, Dethklok preformed first, with their blistering solos and growling vocals scaring the girls, but they steeled themselves when their turn came up. Their performance ended up earning a much louder and rousing applause over Dethklok. The death metal band, feeling humiliated by being beaten by a bunch of teen girls singing sweet, upbeat songs, stormed out of the venue. To this day, both bands have a very rocky relationship with eachother.
    • The band had a rather heartwarming reunion with Ui Hirasawa when she ascended to the Pantheon. Yui especially as she hugged her sister especially tight when they saw eachother. It's surprising for a few deities to find out that Ui is younger than Yui despite the former being much more responsible and mature than the latter. Nonetheless, the two sisters love eachother very much, and love cuddling their friends.
    • Houkago Tea Time sometimes hold concerts in the House of Music, and the audience is quite packed during those events. In the House itself, they met up with 765pro and μ's, who happen to be idol groups mostly/entirely comprised of high school girls who sing upbeat songs. They get along swimmingly with eachother, and sometimes even collaborate on some songs. They also met Yuu Haruna there, who also performs in a band as the Lead Bassist, so he naturally got along with Mio, though he does feel a bit sorry for her being forcibly pushed into the spotlight when she didn't want to. He introduced them to Fuuka Akitsuki, who is the vocalist of the Fallen Moon, and they became friends too. On the other hand, they have a bit of a heated rivalry with the New Directions Glee Club, with the Club accusing them of unoriginality and a lack of variety, with them retorting that the Club only makes covers and not composing their own songs. Outside of the house, they became friends and tutors to Aoi Tategami, who's aiming to be rockstar in the future. There's also Plasmagica, which made them awed that they really are a Little Bit Beastly and not wearing animal headbands, and Ibuki Mioda reminds them of their club advisor Sawako Yamanaka, who's also into Death Metal, and enjoy being with her, even if Mio did faint when they heard "From Me To You" live. They also bonded with Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, even if they're more classical musicians than rock musicians, and felt teary-eyed when they heard of their tragic tale. Speaking of girl groups, they became fans of the Godliest Girl Band ever after visiting one of their concerts, and the members of that group also like listening to the clubs music, plus they think that's it's cool that Lucia, Hanon, and Rina are magic mermaids.
    • The girls, during their time in the Pantheon, wound up meeting up with other girl groups residing there. They became close friends with the Azumanga Daioh girls as well as Yui Ichii, Yuzuko Nonohara and Yukari Hinata, and they like to visit Houkago Tea Time's concerts when not hanging out with them. They like the visit the Tenants of Hidamari Apartments to eat sweets and enjoy their artwork. The girls became frequent visitors of Ama Usa An and Fleur de Lapin because of their delicious sweets and tea respectively, though they are also friends with the Rabbit House staff. They were amazed that the Civilian Antarctica Expedition Team successfully went to Antartica, with Yui desiring to see the penguins up close, and the Anglerfish Team's skills in Sensha-Do impressed them greatly. They enjoy listening to Alice Cartelet explain about British culture while drinking tea with Shinobu Oomiya. They do feel a bit sorry that the School Life Club had to survive through the Zombie Apocalypse, but relieved that they mustered the strength to hold onto hope.
    • The Light Music Club is just one of the many school clubs in the Pantheon, so naturally the girls interacted with those clubs. They became good friends with the Classical Literature as the latter are big fans of them, plus Ritsu and Chitanda end up bonding over being the club president even if the latter takes her duties more responsibly. They're also on goods terms with the other clubs, as they engage in poetry reading with the Doki Doki Literature Club and the other Literature Club and investigating the abnormal with the SOS Brigade and the Paranatural Activity Club.
    • The Band are on good terms with the House of Music in general, but there are a few deities to note for them. They get along swimmingly with the Beatles, as they're honored to meet legendary rockstars while the Beatles see much of themselves within them. Paul and Mio have a special bond, relating to their love of Silly Love Songs, playing the bass, and having to deal with Yui and John. They also get along with Gorillaz and there are rumors of a collab album between them, but they are put off by Murdoc's more vulgar antics. Ritsu was disappointed to hear that The Who were not in the Pantheon, but she's still happy to meet other rock legends like Elvis Presley and Pink Floyd. On the other hand, they detest those who use music for evil like I-No, Lord Raptor, and the Dazzlings, plus Mayhem's violent acts make them squeamish.
      • One day, the Reagan siblings, eager to prove their superiority, stole the bands equipment, leaving them empty handed, which was unfortunate as they were due for a tour and gig session. Metallica, knowing how it feels to have their music gear stolen, bought replacement gear for the girls much to their joy. They now have a good relationship with eachother, and even collaborated on a song together. The girls never forgave the siblings for doing such a cruel thing.
    • The girls often take trips to the House of Food so they can have their daily meals consisting of sweets and tea. They like going to the multiple confectioneries and tea shops in and around the House, including the aforementioned Ama Usa An and Fleur de Lapin. Sometimes, they are joined by tea lovers Iroh and the Blood Team's Alice to drink tea, and sweet lovers Stocking Anarchy and L Lawliet, and end up eating and chatting for a while, making quite lively conversations. They also enjoy eating Mugi's sweets whenever she brings them in. Yui in particular can eat a lot without gaining weight, which she attributes to a high metabolism.
    • Once, the girls participated in a school play of Romeo and Juliet, with Mio as Romeo and Ritsu as Juliet. Both struggled with their roles, the former being too shy for a leading role and the latter being to tomboyish for the role. They practiced by swapping roles in order to get more comfortable with the play. Of course, with the actual Romeo and Juliet in the Pantheon, the girls decided to meet up with them, to which they complimented the girls, saying that they tried their best with the roles handed out to them.
    • The band has their own pet turtle named Ton, which they bought from a hardware store as Yui thought Azusa liked the turtle. Ton serves as the band's mascot in a sense, and can be found in their temple swimming in a fish tank. Rainbow Dash decided to show off her pet tortoise, Tank, to the girls, and they were amazed that Tank could fly thanks to a machine strapped to his shell. Rainbow and Tank also like visiting Ton, with Rainbow calling Tank and Ton "Turtle Partners".
  • Exclusive to Yui:
    • If there's anything Yui likes, it's cute things. If it's cute, than she'll dote on it, regardless of other factors. She gets along with Rena Ryugu, Cocoa Hoto, Hime "Himeko" Onizuka and Yaya Panda due to sharing this interest, and they love doting and cuddling cute deities like Yotsuba Koiwai, Pichu and Togepi, and the Waddle Dees, which sometimes result in hilarious misunderstandings.
    • Yui is also rather clumsy and forgetful; she tends to stumble when running, and also she has a difficult time multitasking, as she gets extremely involved in one subject to the point of forgetting other subjects. She ended up meeting Mikuru Asahina and Sumia by tripping onto them, making all three fall into a tangled heap. They scubbed off the dirt, and apologized for bumping into eachother, and ened up becoming friends. Because she's Mikuru's friends, Yui sometimes becomes the victim of Haruhi's mischievous antics and she likes petting Sumia's pegasus.
    • She once held the title of Goddess of Cuddle Bugs in the House of Friendship, but let go of that title after the Court of the Gods made some revisions in the rules and the rest of the band ascended. She still likes to visit the House often and hug the resident deities there, then hang out and eat snacks with them
    • When the Eeveelutions ascended, Yui was chosen to be Sylveon's partner, given their shared love for cuddling. She and Sylveon took an immediate shine to eachother and enjoy giving eachother hugs. Sylveon also acts as a positive influence to Yui, as she's able to focus more on her guitar playing when Sylveon's around, plus Sylveon enjoys watching her play her Giita. The rest of Houkago Tea Time likes Sylveon and the effect she has on Yui, and consider her the band's secondary mascot of sorts.
  • Exclusive to Ritsu:
    • Ritsu is the club president of the Light Music Club, and the drummer of the band. She is the most tomboyish and sporty of the girls, and excels in Physical Education. She gets along with Chie Satonaka, another tomboy with a sporty streak, and they sometimes go out to watch movies and eat steak. She did feel a bit sad that Chie once felt ashamed of her tomboyish nature as she believed it caused problems for her, but felt relieved that she's over that angst.
    • Ritsu is incredibly energetic and exuberant, often brashly charging towards any challenge in front of her while dragging someone else like Mio with her. Tomo Takino and Astolfo happened to keep up with her energeticness, so they tend to burn off a lot of energy together,and meybe even drag their friends with them willing or not.
    • Her most notable physical characteristic is her large, exposed forehead, and some deities even made jokes about it. She has been compared to Takagi who's also known for her forehead. While Ritsu doesn't get the big deal, she does end up as the butt of some of Takagi's teasing.
  • Exclusive to Mio:
    • She used to hold the title of Reluctant Fanservice with Stephanie Dora, but they split off after the Court of the Gods revised some rules and the rest of the band ascended. They still like to hang out sometimes and talk about getting dragged into embarrassing situations by their friends, when they're not being dragged into those situations already.
    • Mio is a very shy and quiet person. While usually mature and composed, she is easily startled and prefers to stay in the background, which is why she picked the bass over the guitar. She finds many of the deities in the Pantheon rather intimidating to be around, but she feels comfortable with fellow shy goddesses like Fluttershy and Noel Vermillion. Whenever she feels nervous, she can be seen calming down with the two girls.
    • To this day, Mio does not want to be reminded of the time she tripped during a performance, flashing her panties in front of an audience. Referencing this event is sure to mortify the shy girl and reduce her to a stuttering, emberrassed mess. Because of this, she's incredibly afraid of Kazuma Satou, who can snatch the panties off a woman with his Steal ability, fearing that he might try to steal her panties and humiliate her.
    • It's easy to frighten Mio, as the sight of blood, zombies, ghosts, and other unsettling things tend to freak her out. Even a cover of a horror movie will startle her! Predictably, she avoids the Houses of Fear, Undead and Slaughter like the plague, and even being near them will cause her to faint. Unfortunately, some deities like Spooky think it would be funny to drag her into some scary situations just to see her wiggle in agony.
  • Exclusive to Tsumugi:
    • Tsumugi, called "Mugi" for short, hails from a very wealthy family that owns multiple mansions across the globe. She often gives her friends expensive tea with equally expensive tea sets, and also enjoys doing things most middle-class people take for granted because of her isolated lifestyle. She gets along with other rich girls like Emilie "Lili" de Rochefort, Nagi Sanzen'in, Karen Minazuki, and Lilly Satou. Off them, she relates to Nagi for being unfamiliar with more middle-class things, and feels a bit sorry that Karen felt lonely due to her status.
    • Mugi happens to the daughter of a successful company president, explaining her family's large wealth. She ended up getting along with Haru Okumura, who is also the daughter of a wealthy company CEO, although she and her father don't have the best relationship, to which Mugi can only pity her for not fully mending their relationship before her father's murder. Susie also happened to be the daughter of an influential CEO, but Mugi's more conflicted about her as while she feels sorry for her being whisked away to Another Dimension and finding out her father completely forgot about her, she also aims to continue her company's mission to mechanize worlds and was inadvertently responsible for her father's death, so she's conflicted on her.
    • Mugi may be a gentle, dignified person, but whenever two goddesses get very friendly with eachother, Mugi thinks of... intense fantasies involving them, plus she gets excited whenever a goddess gets dragged into rather revealing clothes. She's not alone in this regard, as the mercenary Soleil also tends to have vivid fantasies involving the other goddesses. They like talking and giggling over their rather colourful fantasies together as they observe other girls sharing tender moments with eachother.
    • It may come off as a surprise, but she's incredibly strong for someone her age and size, being able to casually run carrying her keyboard, and wasn't slowed down or tired by carrying large cargo like Ritsu's drum set and the girls luggages. This brought the attention of Pippi Longstocking and Molly Hayes, who wanted to see her feats of strength. In the end, Mugi was impressed by their amazing strength surpassing hers, while the other two bonded with her over this shared characteristic.
    • Like Ritsu, her most notable physical characteristic is her large eyebrows. Though some deities do crack jokes about it, they think that other deities have more impressive eyebrows, like Satsuki Kiryuin. Mugi doesn't really get it, but is interested in meeting her.
  • Exclusive to Azusa:
    • Azusa, in contrast to the rest of the club, is rather mature and responsible, and so she can get pretty exasperated at the clubs more childish and lazy moments. She did warm up and get used to their antics, but sometimes she will express her displeasure at their sillier sides. She relates to Troy Barnes in being the Only Sane Man in comparision to their friends, although Azusa was surprised that he can be quite quirky when near Abed Nadir. She also gets along with Mirage Farina Jenius, who is also more serious than their compatriots like Freyja Wion, plus Freyja being in Walküre, an idol group who use music and song to prevent cure people from Vars Syndrome impressed Azusa.
    • Azusa is the clubs youngest and newest member, joining when he rest of the club was in their second year. This nearly caused some heartbreak when the rest of the club was about to graduate, as Azusa feared about being alone and away from her friends. She shares this trait with Tommy Oliver, who joined the Power Rangers later on after initially being brainwashed into fighting them. She finds him a nice reprieve from the club's crazier antics.
    • Azusa is infamous for the time she wore a cat-ear hairhand, giving birth to the nickname "Azu-nyan", much to her embarrassment and discomfort. That doesn't mean she dislikes cats; she likes them like other animals, but is a bit afraid of getting near them in the first place. A few of the cat girls in the Pantheon like Lem, Ichigo Momomiya, Stella Hoshii, and Serval are encouraging her to visit the House of Felines to get over her fears and pet the cute cats there. Progress is going slow but staedy, and Azusa was surprised that their cat ears are the real deal and not mere accessories.
    • Azusa's skin is rather sensitive to the sun, as being out in the sun for a few hours is enough to give her a nasty sunburn, leaving her with painful sensations and a bad tan. Because of this, she avoids any and all deities that hold domain over the sun, as she doesn't want to risk getting a bad sunburn or worse. She's especially afraid of Sekhmet and the Radiance, as their malevolent nature would likely leave Azusa with ugly burns on her body.

  • Enemies: corrupt law enforcement, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat.
  • Special Relations: Conan Edogawa
  • Not to be confused with: Kaito Kumon
  • Kaito Kuroba is a normal teenager with a normal life. At least, that was the case until he found out that his deceased father Toichi was a notorious thief known as Kaito Kid. With his father's murderers out to get a mysterious gem that can grant immortality, Kaito Kuroba takes on the identity of Kaito Kid in order to stop the organization from going any further with their goals. Since Kaito is a skilled illusionist, it would only make sense for that to translate into his heists, resulting in some unorthodox, yet impressive trickery. There's other forms of trickery that he does in his heists as well, such as disguising himself as another person (and yes, he can match that person's voice very well).
  • The House of Justice received a notice that the Chaos Emeralds were going to get stolen from The Great Treasury. There was a bit of surprise that Dr. Eggman wasn't going to be involved with that, but the various police officers and law enforcement decided to station themselves at the Great Treasury to make it less likely that the items in question get stolen once the potential thief arrives. Unfortunately, the officers found out that the thief already made their way inside and they had to rush to where the emeralds were at. The emeralds weren't present, but the officers could see a white hang-glider in the distance, prompting them to chase the thief. The thief was able to get away, much to the consternation of law enforcement.
    • Following that ordeal, there was a bit of surprise when it was discovered that the emeralds were returned to the Great Treasury. Eyewitness reports about the heist in question mentioned that an assortment of magic tricks was involved and that someone called Kaito Kid was responsible for all of it, including the "returning the gems" part. Law enforcement has made it a point to catch that Kid whenever he strikes again, mostly due to the notices that he sends out.
  • Of the various officers and detectives that are pursuing him, Kaito finds Inspector Zenigata to be quite amusing. Kaito is often reminded of Ginzo Nakamori, who has always targeted Kaito Kid and failed at it, whenever he's trying to avoid getting arrested by Zenigata and even finds the two to be similar in some aspects, right down to the "good at cases that don't involve their number-one target" bit.
    • While he has a decent number of recurring pursuers, there were some that he took plenty of issue with. Specifically, he has problems with the corrupt law enforcers as he felt that even if he told them his reasons for his thefts or the fact that he returns the items after a heist is over since they aren't what he's looking for in the long run, they wouldn't care about it nor his affable demeanor and just want him arrested or worse.
  • If he isn't going out performing heists as Kaito Kid, then Kuroba is probably hanging out with other magicians such as Oscar Diggs, someone who has used his profession for unconventional purposes. Zatanna Zatara and Dorothy Albright have also used their magic tricks outside of the stage. There is a possibility that there a collaboration between them is in development, though if it does indeed happen, whether or not it will be for a larger purpose remains to be seen.
  • He found a kindred spirit in Bugs Bunny, as they're both tricksters (though Bugs is a bit more selective on who to target) and known to disguise themselves as other people (though Kaito put a lot more effort in that regard compared to the wabbit). Weirdly enough, Kaito discovered that he didn't have much difficulty imitating Bugs' Japanese voice.
  • Kaito isn't fond of traditional guns, so he instead relies on a gun that can fire playing cards. This also makes him a bit more distinct from other thieves; thus if "Kaito Kid" is using an actual gun instead of his playing card gun, then it's not the real Kaito Kid that's making his escape. While some deities that are known to weaponize cards find it amusing to some degree, others feel that it's not a practical weapon to use during heists.
  • For some inexplicable reason, Kaito has a strong fear of fish and has been trying to avoid a lot of marine animals as much as he can, especially if they are threatening such as Bruce the Shark. The fear is bad enough that he winces a bit whenever he's provided seafood and tries not to eat such a food. He gets along well with Tohru because of it (although many gods find it ironic that Tohru, with the body of a sumo wrestler, can't stand fish).
  • Naturally, Kaito has come to learn of a slew of other thieves in the Pantheon. He finds the majority of them to be interesting rivals should he cross paths with them during his heists.
    • He actually heard about Lupin III beforehand, especially since that thief managed to disguise himself as Kaito Kid whilst Kaito Kuroba was watching the antics from the sidelines. Kaito was able to get back at him afterwards by stealing something that Lupin III was after before the latter arrived. The two are engaged in a somewhat friendly competition to see who can pull off more daring capers successfully.
    • The one thief that Kaito has a pronounced dislike towards is Felicia Hardy. While she has been both good and evil at different points in time, her going full-on evil and relying on a criminal organization to handle dirty work for her has gotten him rather unnerved. Even though Kaito can be a bit devious at times, he wouldn't try to put others at significant harm on purpose. While Black Cat doesn't really see Kaito as a threat, he has been keeping an eye on her in case the two were to come in direct conflict with each other.
  • Being skilled with disguises (though that only happens if the need arises), Kaito has gotten into a bit of a rivalry with other deities proficient in that field, which also included a couple of thieves. While The Spy is not a thief, his untrustworthiness is notable enough to a point where Kaito is very suspicious whenever The Spy has any involvment whatsoever during any of Kaito's heists.
  • Even though he wasn't that surprised to hear about Conana Edogawa being in the Pantheon considering that they have crossed paths a number of times in the past, Kaito finds the detective to be a worthy adversary given the skills established by such (and Conan has acknowledged Kaito's own skills). That said, they're pretty amicable towards each other even if they're trying to outwit each other.

  • Allies: Vanellope Von Schweetz (her fellow NPC and teammate in Slaughter Race), Ralph, Fix-It Felix Jr., Sergeant Calhoun, Lightning McQueen, Dominic Toretto, Wonder Woman, Brian O'Conner, Max Rockatansky, Franklin Clinton
  • Enemies: Turbo/King Candy, Calypso
  • Pities: Jensen Ames
  • Good Counterpart to: Carol/Mom
  • Shank is one of the main bosses of an apocalyptic racing MMO called Slaughter Race. She is a ruthless woman who won't let any of the players stole one of her valuable cars and if they want to steal it, they have to get through her. Outside of the game, she's actually a genuinely caring person who cares about her teammates and considers them her family. It makes sense that she has to act like a mean person because of the game's script telling her about her actions and personality.
  • One of her teammates, Vanellope vouched for her ascencion, as she wanted to race with her in the different parts of the Pantheon and so they could hang out more often, with their other teammates as her heralds. The ascencion became successful as Vanellope is excited to see her friend and showibg the different racing sections of the Pantheon.
  • Thanks to being friends with Vanellope, she ended up hating King Candy. She thinks what King Candy did is horrible, as he stole Vanellope's position as the ruler of Sugar Rush and doesn't want him to hijack Slaughter Race anytime soon. King Candy is interested to hear that Vanellope ended up quitting her home game and joining Slaughter Race, which means that he might have a chance of ruling Sugar Rush again, however, he was banned from entering it again. He thinks that invading Slaughter Race is something worthwhile to do as it basically means he could meet real people in online identities and that there could be multiple people playing it, and wants to manipulate the game to change the rules, and could make himself popular for it. It also helps that it's actually the one of the most popular MMO in the Internet.
  • As a racer, she is of course fascinated meeting up with a sentinent car like Lightning McQueen. McQueen likes how she is a friendly person and how it differentiates her from the role she plays in-game. When she offered him a race in Slaughter Race in the Internet, he refuses, upon learning that it's an apocalyptic wasteland and how often he gets involved in accidents resulting himself in major injuries, he doesn't think he's prepared for any of that.
  • Dominic is confused what to think of her not because she looks and sounds similar to his friend, Gisele but also because she could be describe as extremely similar to her, albeit a much more friendly one. Shank is at first, skeptical of him upon hearing that he did betrayed his team, but is relieved that to see that he was actually blackmailed and he did it to protect his son. She finds a lot in common with him because they care a lot about they're friends that they consider as family and can be protective of them, and while they can be jerks (well, Shank is acting like one because of her game's script, but she still counts) and can be considered criminals, if only Shank has government officials chasing her in her game, they are genuinely nice people who care about friendship a lot.
    • Speaking of similarities, she is suprised to hear that someone sounds and looks like her, who is Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is suprised to see just how utterly kind and honest she is to people and how much she values friendship as she first saw her putting on a tough girl persona. The former proposes to her if she could become an Amazonian Woman as she believes that if she abandones her tough exterior and uses her talent for good deeds, she is worthy of being one. Shank has to decline the offer, stating that she has friends to look after, which Wonder Woman understood. Despite the circumstances, the two still decded that they could be friends.
    • Due to being friends with Dom, she ended up meeting one of his teammates, Brian O'Conner. Aside from her resemblance to Gisele, Shank is suprised to hear about his former life as a FBI agent, but nonetheless supports his decision of joining his team, even if she considered it a betrayal. She admires of how much his bond with the team has progressed after joining them and hopes that he'll live a happy life after his decision to retire his outlaw life.
  • Even though she lives in a MMO where people are supposed to steal each other's cars and kill each other for ir, she doesn't support the competition that Jensen Ames was forced into. She's aware of how much he was traumatized of being forced to participate into an event that he has no free-will of quitting. That said, she doesn't want him to enter Slaughter Race as she fears that stepping into that place would have haunted him, and was relieved upon hearing that he doesn't want to participate in any races that are extremely violent.
    • Is infruriated to learn that Calypso forced Jensen and his friends to join the Twisted Metal tournament just to fill up the roster. When he heard what kind of world Shank lived in, he considers using her as a future candidate in his tournaments, considering that she is an actual gang member in-game, stole cars, actually killed online players and not to mention she is a skilled driver. Hearing this fueled the animosity even more and hopes that he may not consider turning the tournament to look like her own video game considering that he is a Reality Warper.
  • She feels bad of how much Max Rockatansky has been though. Even though she might never had family, she knew that she will be heartbroken if the friends she consider as family die as well. What makes it worse is that he lives in an apocalyptic desert wasteland. Because of her experience living there, she decided that she should at least teach him how to survive in a place like that in case he might go on an new adventure. Although he doesn't listen, he actually appreciates the gesture and with them living in similar apocalyptic places, he eventually bonded with her, with Shank trying to get him to become more sociable more often.
  • Meets Franklin upon hearing he's part of a gang like her. She feels bad of him having a crappy job of taking cars as a repo man, she will admit she's proud he got out of the job. Although she's wary of his ambition becoming a successful criminal, she doesn't seem to mind it at least. They appreciate each other of their value on friendship, loyalty on their friends, and how they try to balance out the differences of their friends even if Franklin is not the leader. Upon hearing their skills as drivers, the two promised of having a one-on-one race very soon.
  • Can be considered the good counterpart to Carol/Mom. Shank is a nice person who has to act mean thanks to her video game, while Carol is a person with no kindness who has to act nice due to being a president of a company. Carol is disgusted to see what kind of world Shank is living in and considers taking it over to clean it up, something Shank doesn't take for granted. She also hates how Carol/Mom treats her kids, but of course she never listens.
