Overdeities

    Krona 
Krona, The God who Influenced The Big Bang (Entropy, The Mad Guardian)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/krona.png
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: A hand clutching creation
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Greater-Scope Villain, Big Bang Meddling, Searching for knowledge at the cost of possibly EVERYTHING, Fallen Hero, Omnicidal Maniac, For Science!...and indirectly Every Evil Trope Ever
  • Domain: Evil, Science, Destruction, Time
  • Allies: Melkor, Brainiac
  • Enemies: All Seven Lantern Corps (especially the Red Lanterns), Arceus, Galactus, Chakravartin, YHVH, Mata Nui
  • Respected by: Nyarlathotep
  • Feared by: Nekron
  • Opposes: Every Creator Deity ever
  • Opposed by: With the exceptions of his allies, every Marvel and DC character ever
  • Though not the most powerful villain, Krona's impact extends beyond that of even Melkor. Through interfering with the dawn of time, he is responsible for everything wrong with creation. His bungling created the Anti-Monitor and allowed Melkor's own evil to spread through the cosmos. Having discovered the pantheon, he wishes to use this to his advantage.
    • A number of gods in the GUAE believe that he, rather than Melkor, deserves to be their leader. Krona has denied these allegations, as the GUAE is (quote): "Like my mistake, merely a means to a much grander end."
  • Was the first wielder of the Idiot Ball. After the devastation he brought with it, the Guardians of the Universe restrained its power and banished it into space.
  • Has entered the Pantheon in hopes of wrestling the answer out of their gods: what is the origin of all things? As such, he has made an enemy of all creator gods in his search. Melkor and Brainiac are helping him in his quest. Brainiac seeks the knowledge Krona can gain, and Melkor has hopes that through understanding the beginning he can do what he has always wanted: to create life of his own, independent of his creator, Eru.
    • The only god he hasn't ruffled against is YHVH, merely because he doesn't believe him to have anything to do with creativity. A small smirk was across Melkor, seeing Him snubbed at least a little.
  • Of course, several people like to point out that he already GOT the answer, since he got to be part of the new world being birthed. However, Krona grumbles that he didn't have enough time to take notes.
    • On that note, Galactus would like nothing more than to eat Krona alive after killing him and using his body as a base.
    • Speaking of that crossover, it was during this time that Krona began to pivot more towards Conquest than just knowledge. Taking his rage at being denied ANY knowledge out on the universe.
  • Came to a head with Arceus after discovering the Distortion World. As the creator of his Antimatter Universe, Krona has declared Arceus a thief for making its own antimatter god. That, and he wants Arceus to surrender his secrets. Arceus is preparing the other pantheon members of Pokémon for a counter-strike.
  • Thanks to his attempt at universal conquest, he is absolutely forbidden to go anywhere near the House of Emotion. While he probably won't listen, Krona isn't interested in them at the moment. He did, however, deliver one big, fat "I told you so!" when the Guardians of the Universe turned evil.
    • Of course, he was pretty dead at that point, his corpse being mangled by Atrocitus for causing the Manhunters to become evil.
  • The only dead soul we know who Nekron has been unable to contain, and was forced to bargain with. The Lich decided to get back at him for this, and revealed secrets to him. He listened eagerly.
  • Nyarlathotep look fondly at him. As the progenitor to all calamity, the living personification of evil owes him somewhat for allowing them to manifest. He is currently looking to have Krona play a larger role in spreading misery (with Nyarlathotep as a de-facto leader), knowing the unlocked potential he has. This has been kept a secret from Melkor, who doesn't want his position taken.
  • YHVH holds him in utter contempt, blaming him for The Evils of Free Will. Krona was pissed about this, because He conflated will with evil. Not that Krona wasn't pissed off at YHVH for being an even worse version of his fellow Guardians.

  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: His Cairo Overcoat
  • Theme Songs: English, Eternity Served Cold.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Wanting to destroy EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY HIS SISTER, (who was his Split Personality) taking complete control of his body (and doing it incorrectly), having his birth, summoning, events related to his summoning AND HIS NAME all be the result of Stable Time Loops, Being responsible for the misery of everyone, slaughtering ghosts and dark gods, being summoned at the death of the universe, controlling time, having Unconditional Resurrective Immortality, having his name, eyes, minions, weakness and more being related to pool, being an immature brat a heart, Complete Monster, Determinator
  • Underling and Host: Doc Scratch

  • Enemies: John Egbert, Dirk Strider, The Trolls (except for Gamzee), Andrew Hussie, Lucy, The Doctor, Chronoa the Supreme Kai of Time, Professor Paradox, Clockwork, Sans, Yu Narukami, Merged Zamasu, Roland
  • Fears: Missingno and Vinny
  • Feared by: Every Ghost, Author Avatar and Lovecraftian God
  • Opposed by: Every good sibling in the House of Family, Frisk
  • 2/4ths of his Soul Merge being: Gamzee and Equius
  • Heralds: The Felt
  • Soul Jar: Lil Cal
  • Lord English was summoned into the Pantheon in the far future using Doc Scratch as a Host at the end of the universe. He then time travelled to the present to wreak havoc upon reality. The first thing he did was create Lil Cal, the puppet that was responsible for Doc Scratch's existence, thus guaranteeing his summoning through a Stable Time Loop.
    • He was originally the god of Timey-Wimey Balls, but it was pointed out to him that while the time travel of his universe was very complicated, it's rules never actually contradicted themselves. Therefore he left the Pantheon until he could find a better suited time trope.
    • This purposely kicked Roland out of the Pantheon for a good time. It was likely that Randall Flagg played a part in this to get rid of the Gunslinger once and for all. Unfortunately for him, Roland managed to find a new home for himself. He now sets his eyes of defeating English... just as soon as he pops a cap on the Man in Black first.
  • Caliborn is a Cherub born on a post-apocalyptic Earth far, FAR into the future. Cherubs are creatures that have two personalities in them, one good, and one evil. Caliborn was the evil one and Calliope was the good one. A Cherub's two sides are destined to eventually fight until one half consumes the other. Caliborn was able to take a shortcut using Sburb and its connection to Dream Selves to get someone else to do it for him. However since Sburb was designed to be played with a minimum of two people, it tried to punish him by making different game that was virtually impossible to defeat. A monster would meet him and give him a choice; either die right there in order to stop evil in the future, or try to beat the nigh-impossible game. If he would succeed, (and he would) he would be granted Unconditional Immortality, and be imbued with a limitless supply of power. Enough to destroy whatever he wanted for however long he wanted.
    "Knowing him, in fact, proves it could hardly be considered a choice at all."
  • Lord English is incredibly dangerous. He was already a Cherub, which when grown are already threats to multiple planets but aside from his gift he gained from winning the dead session, he was already a Lord of Time, one the two most powerful classes Sburb can offer. Plus, his Soul Merge has given the ability to put thoughts and mental objects into other people's subconscious (a bad thing in the reality where he came from, where dreams take place in a physical world), impressive physical strength and a Breath Weapon. Also, due to using Doc Scratch as a host, he has First Guardian powers, giving him all the abilities Doc Scratch has, though he does not have his Magic Cue Ball aspect, meaning his intelligence thankfully isn't high enough for the First Guardian powers to grant him Omniscience like Doc Scratch. There is a reason he is an Overdeity and the biggest threat to Paradox Space to ever exist.
    • He also had a weapon that could potentially defeat anything. Fortunately for everyone, it only could only be used twice; once by him, and once against him and he has already used it. He currently has it hidden someplace deep in the Void Between the Worlds. Unfortunately for him, Vriska has found it, and has used it on his future self.
  • While it's not certain where his power comes from (although one very likely theory is that he was granted permanent and infinite access to the same cosmic power cherubs get when they mate), it's quite clear how he got them; his prize for winning the dead session was to be able to destroy his God Tier clock, the device that determines whether a God Tier Sburb players death was either Heroic or Just (i.e. permanent). Destroying it has rendered him nearly unkillable since he will just keep resurrecting, as well as imbuing him with previously said limitless power.
    • While he does is nearly immortal he does have two weaknesses. One is that the pendulum of his destroyed God Tier Clock seems to be the origin of the Magic Cue Ball. Therefore any weapon that originates from said cue ball is able to judge his death to be Heroic or Just, killing him for good. Unfortunately, Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, so that might not even be enough. Even if it was, he is destined to appear in another world anyway; Alternia, meaning he won't be dying for good in the Pantheon.
      • His other weakness is that it's possible to glitch him out of reality. This is why he avoids Missingno and Vinny. He accidentally gained this weakness when he took on the name Lord English. This is because naming himself after a language gave him something in common with the Trope Namer of the Lord British Postulate.
  • He is very skilled in manipulating stable time loops, and has destroyed many universes using said loops. Said loop involves being summoned at the end of the Universe then traveling back in time to start his plan, which starts with spawning Lil Cal into someone's nightmares and using Sburb to bring that nightmare into reality, then use said puppet to create Doc Scratch, who would help him with all with his plan to end said universe as well as be his vessel for the summoning. And the plans DO work. He already was summoned at the end of the universe after all.
    • Though he really doesn't have much of a plan for the Pantheon other than to just wait for it to end naturally. He knows if he and Doc Scratch try to end it prematurely, everyone would try to stop him, and he knows he would lose that fight.
    • His ability to use stable time loops to bend fate to his will comes from him being the Lord of Time which gives him time powers and instinctive intuition on how they work. Or, as he said when he was figuring them out:
    AS A LORD OF TIME. I THINK I'M GOING TO MASTER TIME. NOT WITH MY BRAIN. WHICH WOULD BE TOO HARD. BUT WITH MY INSTINCTS. LIKE IN A WAY THAT WORKS WITH MY NATURAL IMPULSES. SUCH AS MY AMBITION. MY WILL TO COMMIT MAYHEM. MY DESIRE TO PUNISH THOSE I DESPISE. I THINK PART OF MY PERSONAL QUEST. IS TO BECOME AT EASE WITH THE FORCES OF INEVITABILITY. INEVITABILITY THAT ALL THINGS SHOULD AND WILL FALL IN MY FAVOR. THAT ALL CAUSALITY ANSWERS TO ME. AND THAT ALL OUTCOMES NOT ONLY SERVE ME. BUT CONSIST OF MY BEING.
    • Even his NAME is a Stable Time Loop. He stole it out of respect from Jake English when he was battered around by his hope powers. But Jake was named after Lord English as an act of defiance against one Lord English's underlings on an alternate Earth who fears him greatly.
  • Fortunately for, well, everybody, his future isn't looking too hot. After he's finished with the pantheon, his planned location to be summoned at is Alternia the Troll universe. And after that, things aren't looking so good for him. It isn't known what will happen to him, but with a massive black hole right behind him made out of the Green Sun, caused by his sister, Vriska using his Juju against him that has John and his friends (one of them wielding a sword related to Lord English's weakness) trapped in it in front of him, Doc Scratch gone for good due to the Green Sun being a black hole, and Lil Cal possibly gone for good due to its curse being put into a creature who was killed by Dave, Lord English's future looks to see him trapped and/or killed and without a way to be summoned ever again. To top it off, his last known image had his rotating Billiard Ball eyes stuck on two black 8s signifying that his game was coming to an end.
  • Lord English has a rather strong connection with the game of Pool despite probably never even learning of the game. The Dead Session he beat was basically a cosmic game of pool, conquering planets in that looked EXACTLY like pool balls, digging up bombs and using said bombs to propel planets into a black hole in numerical order (but saving the 8th planet for last) like one punts pool balls into the respective holes. His eyes are alternating pool balls, his mob, The Felt, are all green and named after the fabric used on pool tables, and member number 8, will destroy the universe if she dies, much like sinking the 8-ball will end a game of pool (she isn't welcome in the pantheon for obvious reasons), his peg leg and his cane resemble a billiard cue stick, his right-hand man, Doc Scratch, has a cue ball for a head, his weakness is a Cue Ball, a ball used to sink other balls, and to top it all off, both his and Scratch's name are pool terms.
  • Is considered to be one of the greatest enemies to Siblings part of the House of Family due to just how far he went to torment his sister. Even when she was still his Split Personality, Caliborn was known to leave leaving insulting messages in her inventory and constantly threatening to kill her. When he finally got the means to do so, he did it without hesitation. When he gained his destructive powers, he decided that killing her once wasn't enough, so he decided to search through the Void Between the Worlds where the afterlife exists so he could blow up piece after piece of the afterlife, completely erasing them from existence in an attempt to find his sister and remove her from reality completely.
    • And this was just ONE of the ways he tried to torment her. As Doc Scratch is merely an extension of his will, everything Doc Scratch did was also something he wanted to do. When Doc Scratch was inserted into the Troll's universe and turned what would normally be a relatively peaceful race into a bunch of war hungry galactic conquerors and doom them all to extinction, the main reason Lord English wanted this done wasn't to create the Green Sun, his power source, it was because his sister was fond of the race. Seeing that he was willing to go so far JUST to hurt his sister disgusted everyone in the Siblings house to their core.
    • There is nobody in the pantheon who hates Lord English more than Yu Narukami. What he feels towards Itachi is NOTHING compared to how he feels towards him. The one time Lord English had the gall to show up, Yu blasted him with EVERY Persona he had.
  • In addition to being horrible to his sister, Lord English is known for being pretty terrible to females in general. He was already quite a sexist dick when was young and only got worse when he grew up. All three known female who ever worked for him were generally nothing more than slaves and were only able to quit their jobs by dying.
  • Lord English is known for killing Andrew Hussie, making him well feared amongst all the Author Avatars in the Pantheon. It has however given him the respect and alliance of Bob.
    • Or at least it DID until Bob learned more about him. When he learned just how horrible Lord English was to his sister, Bob was not very supportive. He and George may have been enemies, but they're still family. He also learned that Hussie actually helped Caliborn on his quest and that that Lord English's reason for killing him basically bodied down to Hussie being a snarker. The true nail in the coffin, however, was that this version of Lord English didn't kill Hussie yet. He's going to do it when he is summoned in Alternia. He's quite glad it was going to work though. After that, Bob ended their partnership with a blast of gunfire and shouting:
  • Is feared by every Lovecraftian Deity and Ghost in the Pantheon. For the Lovecraftian Gods, this is due to him killing their expies - the Horrorterrors. Not only did Lord English kill said expies, he massacred them to such a ridiculous degree that they actually had to beg lesser beings for help. For the ghosts, it is because, during Lord English hobby of killing universes, he also blows up bubbles of the afterlife in the Void Between the Worlds called the Furthest Ring.
    • As such, he is barred COMPLETELY from the House of Otherness, and he only accepted this when he was commenced by everyone that his sister's ghost wasn't there.
  • Despite being a member of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, he and Nekron don't get along. In fact, Nekron only allows him to help in the Pantheon and nowhere else. Partially because Lord English is immortal and Nekron doesn't like that, partially because the fact the Lord English being in a universe will mean it will be destroyed completely, and Nekron actually wants existence intact when all life is gone from it so he can enjoy its peace and quiet. And mainly because he is afraid Lord English will blow up the bit of afterlife Necron lords over in his rampage to kill his sister's ghost.
  • If there is any virtue Lord English, could possibly claim to have, its that he is INCREDIBLY determined. The Dead Session he was in was designed to be practically impossible, to the point that starting the quests requred doing numerous tedious tasks, he still completed it. He did the extremely boring tasks, to start the quest out practically out of spite, he did the extremely difficult and time constrained task of conquering several planets and shoving them into a black hole despite a having a learning disability, he grinded the levels required to become strong enough fight the ludicrously hard end-boss, and despite having many allies in the form of The Felt and Gamzee helping him along the way, he most definitely did NOT learn the value of friendship. He did all this out of determination to gain the power to become the monster he is today.
    • As such, he has the begrudging respect of Lambdadelta, due to his willpower as well as the opposition of Sans and the Human Child due to having disturbing similarities to the Genocide Run variant of Chara.
  • Considers The Doctor to be one of his greatest enemies. Not only is The Doctor as good of a Time Master as Lord English, but Lord English thinks that The Doctor is ripping off his title as the Lord of Time since he is far older than The Doctor. The Doctor has countered that since Lord English was born in the future, he was technically first, but Lord English is too stubborn to change his mind.
    • Another one of Lord English's enemies is Professor Paradox. His knowledge of the space-time continuum gained through 100,000 years in the event horizon rival Lord English's instincts.
    • With the Supreme Kai of Time's recent ascension and the fact that she is over 75 million years old, yet another virtuous "Lord of Time" has appeared to stop his wares. The three of them meet very often. As far as he's concerned, too often. Mainly because it's always 2 against 1. In fact, Chronoa's actively trying to find a way to seal him up in the Crack of Time.
  • Clockwork hates him. Hates his incredible cruelty, hates his unfathomable abuse of stable time loops ensuring that "Parade of time" goes only the way he wants it to go, and how he uses it to cause so much destruction and HATES the fact that he really can't do anything to stop him, seeing as he is destined to appear in Alternia after his rampage in the Pantheon as well as the ludicrous ease he displays in killing ghosts. Needless to say, he is VERY glad that Lord English's fate after his appearance in Alternia isn't looking very good.
  • There are some allies that Lord English has obtained in the pantheon. One Deity that Lord English gets along with due to their shared bloodlust is Khorne, who LOVES what he's going to to the Alternian race in making them into a war-hungry race and causing untold amounts of universal damage to reality. He WAS concerned about Lord English blowing up the Warp, in his quest to find his sister's ghost, but Lord English but those worries to rest; He thinks all the suffering the souls in the Warp go through is awesome, and if his sister IS in there, he won't mind her staying in there.
    • He also finds some common ground with Porky Minch, relating to his being an Ax-Crazy Time Traveler who hasn't matured a bit despite his absurd Time Abyss. Lord English has also barely matured since his youth due to him taking a shortcut in killing his sister, causing him to skip an important part of maturation for himself. He is will be stuck a stunted miserable tool forever. This also means he can't grow the wings his species usually gets when they mature.
  • There is one Deity that is just as monstrous as Lord English that considers him a grave enemy; Merged Zamasu. As far as Zamasu is concerned, Lord English is EVERYTHING that could go wrong when you give a mortal divine power and time travel and considers him one of his greatest enemies. Naturally, the rest of the Pantheon doesn't consider him to be much better, and whenever they fight, they are honestly hard pressed to figure out who to root for.
  • It should be noted that Lord English was once an aspiring artist in his time. He was originally a TERRIBLE Artist, but he improved got better at his art. He never actually got GOOD, but he at least got good enough that you could see what he was actually trying to draw and it all culminated in a claymation work that honestly wasn't that bad for a beginner. It completely burnt him out though so don't expect any more art from him anytime soon.
  • Also has a place in House of Sports.

    Whis 
Whis, The Divine Keeper of the Reset Button
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whis11116.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: his symbol or his staff
  • Alignment: True Neutral, leaning to Neutral Good.
  • Portfolio: BEING SUPER POWERFUL and rather campy, Big Eater, resetting time, being an Eccentric Mentor, Our Angels Are Different
  • Superior: Grand Zen'o (present and future)
  • Allies: Beerus, Son Goku, Vegeta (his disciples), Bulma, Chronoa the Supreme Kai of Time, Future Trunks, Nozdormu, Barry Allen/The Flash, any good chef in the pantheon
  • Enemies: None (no-one's that stupid)
  • Opposed by: Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Closely Watching: Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn, Android 21, Broly: BR
  • He ascended to make sure that Beerus was taking care of himself and to make sure he's not doing anything stupid.
    • Also to see if a suitable successor for Beerus' position can be found here. Much to Beerus' annoyance, he's looking at Sailor Saturn.
  • After hearing about Haruhi-sama's abuse of the Reset Button, he has taken it upon himself to make sure to keep it in his care so that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands again, much to the relief of Yui Ikari.
  • Some foolish gods tend to underestimate him, claiming he's not as strong as people say he is. The Trollkaigers decided to test their theory by sneaking some really spicy sauce into his food. When Beerus went berserk, this happened, which shut up his detractors.
    • Of course, if that didn't convince them, his sparring session with Goku and Vegeta would have, as he is one of the very few gods to take on the two of them and win. He is also the only god to curb stomp the two simultaneously and thus rivals Asura in being the top Badass in the pantheon.
  • He's a big foodie. As a result, he'll often go to the house of Food in order to sample their cuisine, even if his pupil is fighting in the background.
  • Asura is curious to see what Whis is truly capable of, but Whis does not feel like pitting his strength against Asura's own.
  • Please do not remind him of the time he stepped in poo.
  • It's noted that he sounds a bit like a certain substitute Soul Reaper. He barely pays it any mind, though.
  • After it was revealed Whis is the fastest being from his universe, petitions started up for him to race various other speedsters. Whis declined as he really only likes to use his speed for dodging and travelling, not racing. However, he has been known to get annoyed when others who know of his agility, specifically Beerus, complain about him taking things slow.
  • The only pantheon member who gives Whis any concern is the Anti-Monitor, and that's due to serving a dual purpose: by cleaning up his Crisis Crossover with the Reset Button, it allows a proper Cosmic Retcon and the renewal of the Pantheon. Monty is not happy about this, and the two are often in conflict.
  • Has a twin sister called Vados, who serves as an attendant in Universe 6. She is believed to be slightly stronger than Whis, something which terrifies a number of gods, who are pleading Whis not to let her in the pantheon.
  • Whis became even scarier for most of the pantheon as he recently revealed that he "has something way better than the Mafuba" (Yes, the same Mafuba that served as the Godzilla Threshold for Merged Zamasu). Whether he is talking about another sealing technique or an unknown ability is unclear, but one thing is sure: nobody wants to find out.
  • Whis has not yet managed to get his superior, The Omni King Zen'o, into the Pantheon... not for a lack of trying, mind you. Most of the Deities are just terrified of what would happen if someone so powerful ascended. Be it for good or bad, the balance of the entire pantheon would certainly change.
    • Good news: he finally managed to get him into the Pantheon. Bad news: Zen'o might not be the benevolent god most believed him to be, given that he's recently set up an inter-universal tournament where the losing teams will have their universes wiped out for no apparent reason other than he felt like it. A lot of deities are frustrated that Whis would bring someone so overwhelmingly powerful yet childishly impulsive into the Pantheon, though they didn't start to express it until after he got preoccupied with setting up the Tournament of Power and left his seat open for a long time.
    • Even worse news: he actually did it. The first universe to be fully eliminated from the Tournament of Power couldn't spend more than a second before being swiftly and immediately erased by Zen'o and his future twin counterpart. Seeing Zen'o as too big a threat to keep around, every Grand United Alliance in the Pantheon except for Destruction combined their greatest forces in power, science, and magic just to make the Mister Big temple inaccessible to Zen'o and effectively lock him out so he couldn't return to the Pantheon.
    • Whis himself appeared to be nonplussed about any and all of this. He is one of the angels of Zen'o and retainers to a God of Destruction, after all. Given how Zen'o returned to the Pantheon without a hitch following the Tournament's end, with the same temple to match, it turned out everything the Alliances had done didn't actually work at all. Fortunately the opposition to his ascension isn't as solid anymore; the Alliances of Good and Chaos each decided to back off trying to keep the Omni-King out as well, given his belief in humanity's virtue and the Secret Test of Character contained in the tournament all along. That said, many members of both alliances still don't quite trust Zen'o.
  • He and Beerus refused to act as more than informative bystanders whenever they were summoned by Bulma during the adventure against Android 21. However, Whis noticed that the Earthling Soul that linked itself to Goku and all the other Z-Fighters to draw out their sealed powers had some strange quality to it, and he sensed somehow that it wasn't satisfied with her defeat. He instructed it to go back in order to gather the truth behind the story. After allowing the revelations to play out, he saw Android 21's Heroic Sacrifice and concluded it was for the best, only to then see Sailor Chibi Moon and Ajani Goldmane hatch a plan to resurrect and ascend 21 within the Pantheon.
    • Following them further, he discovered the truth about how they created the Earthling Soul, and went to visit one Barry Allen, the contributor whose ability he directly spoke to. However, at the same time, 21 was visiting The Flash as well, to thank him for being part of the Soul which helped her so greatly. He ended up telling 21 about the time travel as well as the fact he wasn't particularly thrilled at her presence here, a notion she actually agreed with to an extent, as well as giving Barry his stamp of approval as a hero of speed and time.

Greater Gods

    The Dahaka 

"rehtruf on enilemit eht tpursid lliw uoY"Note 

The Dahaka, God of The Dangers Of Time Travel (The Personification of The Inevitability of Fate, The Guardian of The Timeline)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dahaka.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Its horns that form the symbol of Infinity
  • Theme Song: I Stand Alone(Starting the chase), Escape The Dahaka(Resuming a chase), Battle The Dahaka (Confronting The Dahaka)
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Combat Tentacles, Flash Step, Implacable Man, The Unstoppable, Horned Humanoid You Can't Fight Fate, Weakness to Water
  • Domains: Time, Fate, Sand, Inevitability
  • Allies in general: Those that have accepted their fate.
  • Enemies in general: Those that try to defy their fate or change the past.
  • Opposes: Water deities
  • Conflicting Opinions / Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Chronoa the Supreme Kai of Time, Chronormu, Nozdormu, and about anyone who considers his methods too extreme
  • Unwitting Pawn to: Liu Kang and Arthas Menethil
  • Many try to change their fates, often to live a life without what made them want to live the changed life in the first place. When they do so under any method of time travel and change their fates, they are chased down by The Dahaka. Its goal is to set back what has been changed and it cares little for the reasons why there was a change.
  • The reason the Dahaka entered is because he sensed an anomaly in the Timelines that wasn't the fault of a single character but an entire place. The Pantheon being said place, the Dahaka wasted no time in freaking out a lot of deities around him given that his mere presence drains the colour of an area. And when he witnessed that a large number of deities have already altered their timelines in certain ways, The Dahaka felt like his workload became increasingly bigger.
  • It is immune to every kind of weapon; it chases people for as long as it needs to, leaving people little time to do anything but run; and to make matters worse, it cannot be affected by any time changing methods. The only way he will stop pursuing you if you have water powers or hide behind a body of water, since he apparently is harmed by it, though this is a temporary solution since he will find a way around it. Besides, the only way to kill him is with The Water Sword.
    • Given this fact, ever since his ascension there has been a huge number of time-traveling deities that have hidden in the House of Water & Moisture to escape the Dahaka. It works as a temporary solution at least, since he will gladly resume chase the moment they step out.
  • It appears at first to speak gibberish or some strange language. Those that try to escape through rewinding time in its presence have revealed it has in fact been speaking to them in reverse. More accurately, it is threatening them whilst they escape it.
  • Is seen as the biggest threat by time-using gods in this house. Dahaka has been chasing after them all for changing their past, or trying to cheat death through time travel.
  • It's not exactly clear where Shulk is on the Dahaka's kill list, since his abilities are not exactly time travel, but he has used them to cheat fate countless times. It could just be that the Dahaka is afraid of the Monado since Shulk has used it to kill stronger gods before, like Zanza. Sure, it's not the Water Sword, but it might just do in a pinch...
  • Has a professional alliance with Dhuum. While the latter mostly targets those who have prevented or avoided deaths by means of resurrection, he cannot deal with those that use time as a way of getting around death. The latter fact is what made Dhuum and The Dahaka a terrific duo, considering the Dahaka knows exactly who has cheated death by time traveling (after all, this is one of the reasons he went after the Prince). It's not uncommon to see the two hunting their prey together, given the shared goals.
  • After confronting one of the time travelers that changed their fate, Lucina, The Dahaka was not prepared when she was aided by two more of her allies who also were people who changed their fate. He was driven off by them numerous times, so instead he intends to try and get allies of his own before trying again.
  • Considers Eobard Thawne as the perfect example as to why he goes after anyone who changes the timeline. Thawne on his part is wary of the Dahaka since he had been chased by an entity in a different continuity in the form of the Black Flash.
    • He is even considering going after Thawne's archenemy The Flash since he did also change the timeline. The Flash perfectly knows this and eagerly awaits for when the time comes.
  • Thankfully for the Dahaka, there are certain deities that also ensure that the timelines are flowing correctly. However, he is rather controversial among them, considering he is more extreme in his approach to correcting the timeframes than others, and has even gone after those who have helped correct the timeline too.
    • Chronoa is thankful that his intentions of preserving the timeframes are noble. However, she has no intention on joining forces with the Dahaka, since he leaves no room for exceptions and cares little to nothing about good or evil, and she hasn't forgotten that he tried to go after Trunks and his friends.
    • Nozdormu is more understanding than others about the Dahaka's intentions — after all, they share the same mindset — but certainly does not approve of his methods. Chronormu on the other hand has expressed their displeasure in working together with the Dahaka but only does it on behalf of her boss.
  • Not to be confused with Dehaka, despite the similar sounding names.
  • Supporting the idea that time travel itself is not the only method of time-alteration he seeks to correct, the Dahaka has recently targeted the Thunder God Raiden, who significantly changed the direction of his world not through time travel, but through a vision sent across time to himself. The future version sent the vision in hopes the past self would stop the Battle of Armageddon from taking place and either destroying his world or leaving it at the mercy of the battle's ultimate winner Shao Kahn; he succeeded, but in the process many of the allies he intended to save only died earlier and suffered worse in death for his efforts, while others saw their progeny brought into the mortal kombat between the realms. Ironically, this all caused an ancient guilt complex he already had to define him well enough to become his cause of seating in the Pantheon. The Dahaka intends to give the "Guilty Thunder God" the justice that his conscience seeks.
    • It turns out he was pointed in the direction of Raiden by none other than Kitana, co-ruler of the Netherrealm; shortly after receiving a vision showing that she would've ultimately saved the world after Armageddon and reigned benevolently over her home realm of Edenia had Raiden not intervened, she was taken with the desire to see Raiden pay for ruining her life. As the would-be Queen helps the Dahaka track down the aggressive Elder God, Liu Kang can be seen smiling in the distance…as can Arthas Menethil.
  • Like many, the Dahaka has Homura Akemi in his crosshairs for her actions in the Great Upheaval. Unlike many, it is purely because of the time-changing aspect, and far from being morally outraged at exactly what she did, he believes it was inevitable that things would fall so disastrously considering how often she was backing through time. A few good-aligned deities grudgingly admit he has a point.

  • Before he was Barry Allen's enemy in the 20th/21st century, Eobard Thawne was an obsessive fan of the Flash in the 25th century, to the point he replicated the conditions which connected Barry to the Speed Force on himself and used plastic surgery to look like Barry. Then he traveled back in time to run next to his hero and instead landed a few years after Barry's death and discovered that Barry's archenemy... was Eobard Thawne. His mind, already tortured by his own Flash obsession and the side effects of time travel, went mad, causing him to think he was Barry for awhile until Barry's successor, Wally West, defeated him and sent him back to his own time.
  • Though the memory of the incident left him, he was still left with an instinctive hatred for the Flash. So when a time capsule with a Flash suit came into his time, he wasted no time in experimenting to make it go faster — incidentally changing it into the reverse-colored form he would wear to this day — and then using it to go on a massive crime spree. To no one's surprise, Barry came back to retrieve the time capsule and ended up fighting and defeating him for the first time. And from that point forward, he accepted his destiny as the Flash's greatest villain.
  • Out of sheer hatred for Barry Allen, when Thawne discovered the existence of the Pantheon and the fact that Barry had ascended into it, he resumed his Tachyon experiments on his suit and even re-stole the 25th century version of the Cosmic Treadmill to restore its ability to jump dimensions. After a few months, and a dimension-hopping visit from Towa, the sultry scientific villainess in charge of the Time Breakers, he was able to figure it out and treadmill his way into the Pantheon.
    • Through she declined to go with him at that moment, Thawne plans on helping Towa and her creation/"husband" Mira ascend at some point as well, which is exactly what she was counting on. For now, the Time Breakers are counted as his high priests.
  • Thawne is one of the pettiest people to ever exist. Everything he does is simply to screw over someone or another, usually Barry, out of spite, and he has even completely erased people from existence for getting in his way — including his own brother.note  The Winchester Brothers dislike him because they would never do that to each other of their own free will, plus his eyes remind them of a certain Yellow-Eyed Demon who frequently targeted their family.
    • Through the M.O. of traveling back to cause people to die early or even be erased altogether, he managed to twistedly work his way up to becoming the professor of the Flash Museum in his time. This is where he gets the Professor Zoom nickname from.
  • Will occasionally align with Captain Cold when it comes to taking down Barry or any of his Justice League friends who happen to get in the way, and he has some respect for Cold's strategic brilliance, but considering Cold's pragmatic codes of honor, they don't like each other very much.
  • Being that they're all powerful, smart, skilled, 100% proud unadulterated evil, and don't have any clashing ambitions to stop getting along over, Thawne gets along famously with M. Bison and Xehanort. They even call him by his preferred nickname of Professor Zoom instead of Reverse-Flash like the heroes do. While he's declined full membership in either man's organization, Thawne has helped drive a three-man alliance wherein they can each assist on some of each other's schemes and projects.
  • Chun-Li, Guile, and Nash instantly proclaimed Thawne and Xehanort wanted criminals the moment they learned of this alliance. Sora, Riku, and Kairi are training even harder now that Thawne and Bison are factors in their struggle. As for the Justice League…
  • Pretty much of all of the Flash's Justice League friends have encountered the Reverse-Flash at least once and know exactly how dangerous he is. Not to mention he's the one who went back to when Barry was a child, killed Barry's mother, and framed his father for it, just to try to ruin his future out of petty revenge. Aside from being the mark of a truly evil bastard, the temptation to undo this event constantly hangs over Barry's head — leaving the DC timeline under near-permanent threat of a ruinous Flashpoint Paradox specifically because of Eobard Thawne. And yeah, they're also closely watching his allies now.
  • Speaking of Flashpoint, he wants payback on Thomas Wayne for killing him in that timeline as its darker alternate Batman, whether by gun or by sword. Seeing Thomas and Martha happy and healthy in the Pantheon, he has an opportunity to do just that — by holding their lives over the actual Batman's head to keep Bruce from stopping him. Time will tell when he needs to do this.
  • On that note, several of the other time-traveling deities don't like him either.
    • Future Trunks thinks, with good reason, that the Time Breakers may have gotten their "screw everything up" modus operandi straight from him.
    • The Dahaka sees Thawne as a perfect example of why it goes after those who would change history. Thawne is also cautious of the Dakaha considering how in a certain continuity, he is eventually hunted down and erased by a similar entity in the Black Flash.
    • Homura and Nox, both of whose time havoc was entirely predicated on undoing mistakes and protecting loved ones, both find the existence of a man who would travel back so he could be the reason things are screwed up in the first place to be especially heinous.
    • Hiro sympathizes with the Flash's temptation to go back and save his mom from Thawne despite the ill-effects this could have.
    • Related to both Trunks and Hiro's reasons, his threat to the timeline has also gotten on the radar of Dialga, the mythical Pokémon of Time.
    • Despite their occasional disagreements, Nozdormu and Clockwork, plus the former's apprentice Chromie, are on the same page when it comes to Thawne: this man alters time to do evil and is a direct enemy to the flow of time.
    • Oyashiro and Rika Furude oppose Thawne for similar reasons as Homura. That "Groundhog Day" Loop they kept attempting to avert? He'd probably create that situation for someone in a heartbeat over some small issue.
  • Bernkastel, on the other hand, loves seeing Thawne go back to try and make people suffer, not to mention the absolute irony in all of it. She's considering inducting him into Trollkaiger, but has yet to approach him with the offer.
  • Porky Minch is a fan of Thawne's approach toward realizing the apocalyptic chain reaction set off by Flashpoint: totally worth it to make Barry suffer. They are now comrades in evil-for-fun time shenanigans.
  • He and Dio Brando also plan on working with each other as soon as the appropriate mutual benefits arise, seeing that one man who can speed through time and another man who can stop time could make for some deadly tag team partners.
  • Discovered that the Flash managed to make enemies with a kindred spirit of his: Tenjuro Banno, AKA Kamen Rider Gold Drive — the gold-colored Evil Knockoff to the scarlet Kamen Rider Drive just as Thawne himself is to Barry. Thawne proceeded to seek out Tenjuro and quickly join forces against Barry and Shinnosuke Tomari. The fact that Tomari is a cop just like Barry also pisses him off.
  • Speaking of Kamen Riders, when he heard that Kyochiro Kuroi once altered time by killing Riders 1 and 2, allowing SHOCKER to rule the world, he was impressed and saw Kuroi as a proper potential ally. But then he heard that Kuroi regretted and ultimately reversed these actions to become a "true" Kamen Rider and his view quickly turned to disgust at the sentimental idiot.
  • Was greeted by Deadpool at one point and found his questions and comments utterly annoying. However, the Merc With a Mouth made an offhand joke about him being "The Reverse-Sonic", which pointed him on to Sonic the Hedgehog (since Sonic's fur color blue is the opposite of yellow). Sonic is now on his radar for destruction as well, not just for being another intrepid heroic speedster with a quality life, but also because he's so cheesy and happy-go-lucky it nauseates the petty and vile Professor Zoom.
  • Wants to capture Supergirl as part of a plan to piss off Superman, Flash, and the Martian Manhunter and lure them into a trap, but he's still trying to figure out the details. Lex Luthor and Darkseid, who he's allied with in the past, have offered to help, primarily because they want to take out Superman as well. Vandal Savage also, though mainly because he senses a potential opportunity to steer Thawne away from his alliance with Shadaloo and towards the Illuminati, by proving their superior ability to help him torment Barry. Recent events in the Street Fighter universe give merit to Savage's cause on this one.
  • Twilight Sparkle and Spike have seen what happens when a villain decides to go back in time and alter it out of spiteful vengeance. In their case, Starlight Glimmer stopped a pivotal event from occurring which had led to them meeting their friends, creating several evil alternate timelines wherein each of their world's previous archenemies would take power. Having had to personally stop her, they know the kind of danger Thawne presents and they have no intention of letting him get away with any further damage here in the Pantheon. Starlight herself isn't kind to Thawne upon her ascension either, given how she turned over to the side of good by the time it was all over.
  • As a fellow Loony Fan-turned-Arch-Enemy to a famous hero, Eobard sees a lot of himself in Syndrome. He's also impressed at Syndrome's skills with robotics and devious traps and complete lacking of scruples. However, his backstory of having been rejected as his idol's sidekick makes Thawne think this is how Barry would've treated him had his first run on the Cosmic Treadmill been successful, which irritates him because it means he himself "was once that naive." He also doesn't fully trust that Syndrome wouldn't turn on him and kill him to gain fame or power.
  • His response to Barry and Future Trunks bringing the Supreme Kai of Time and returning Sailor Pluto into the Pantheon in reaction to his arrival?
    "Of course they had to bring more friends. They know that I'm superior to every one of them. Just ask the Flash. How many friends has he had to align with over the years? The League, the Society, the Legends. Not one of them who's fought me doesn't fear or dread me. Not even Superman."
    • Towa's brother Dabra would ascend to the Pantheon, giving him a little more help from the Time Breakers. He got more enemies to contend with around the same time, as Chronoa's Time Patrol wound up recruiting the Saiyan Bardock as well.
  • For Eobard's part, he callously claims to be vastly superior to all those who object to his methods, classing them all as weak, cowardly, and sentimental, "Just like Barry."
  • He has become one of the few DC characters who retains his Post-Crisis memories after Flashpoint, though only after DC Rebirth. He figured something must have changed the timeline, and finding the Comedian's button let him try and go after the source of it. He believed that being a living paradox would let him confront the cause of it all. Said cause being Doctor Manhattan, who disabused him of that notion. Violently. Though Joker Immunity proved to be in effect, that doesn't change the fact that Manhattan made him beg for his life and that Thawne remains terrified of him.

  • Fears: Tyrant Valvatorez
  • Should any Incubator knock on her door, her first response is to shoot them… no matter how many times they come back.
    • As of recently, she is rather uneasy around Fluttershy… because of some similarities with her voice to Kyubey. This unfortunately worked against her when Joker poisoned her with fear toxin-laced pizza, causing her to lash out at the pony and seriously wound her before hallucinating Madoka condemning her for doing so. Fortunately, Fluttershy made a full recovery and Homura reconciled with Madoka, regaining her position as her herald (which, come to think of it, she never lost to begin with). The truth, however, proved not to be so simple.
  • It's said that Homura and Madoka are very close, that has attracted the attention of House of Love... some of which Homura can only smile at.
  • Rika Furude has been rather friendly with her, these to also share a bond. They know the pain that a "Groundhog Day" Loop can impact on the soul. Homura is also on good terms with her friend and superior, Oyashiro-sama.
  • Araya Souren has the rare and dubious honour of being the only god/goddess/divine being in the pantheon to violently enrage Homura on sight (after learning about the Apartment Complex from Ryougi Shiki), something that is normally reserved for an Incubator. If not for his mastery in the Innate Bound Field, he would be shot on sight like an Incubator. And trust us, she's tried
  • Despite things being civil between them, Homura and Sakura Kinomoto tend to be at odds with each other. It stems for the animosity when Sakura formally was the Goddess of Magical Girls. This is said to displease Madoka, as she and Sakura have a friendly relationship... this leads to some strained cooperation between Homura and Sakura.
  • Despite both being Puella Magi, Homura and Sayaka have a history. Homura once tried to kill Sayaka when they where both mortal... they have been hostile to each other ever since. Since ascending, the hostilities have died down somewhat... enough to keep Madoka happy, but Homura still sees Sayaka as "Unfit to be a Mahou Shoujo". Sayaka thinks she is just jealous and knows about Homura's collection hobby.
    • This also strains any relations with Kyouko Sakura. Considering the relationship she has with Sayaka, Kyouko despises Homura as a result of her past action. Homura doesn't seem bothered by Kyouko, but will act if things cross a line.
  • Bernkastel appears to have taken an interest in her, although it's unknown exactly what she is up to. Mami Tomoe suspects that it might have to do with her other responsibilities as the Goddess of Retroactive Preparation. It does, in part... the other half it comes from her time abilities and the Witch known as Homulily.
  • Is absolutely FURIOUS with Tzeentch after finding out what he's been doing all this time to her and Madoka.
  • Shiki Tohno can't help but notice that Homura looks a lot like his little sister, Akiha. Of course, he's more concerned that Homura will be a target in SHIKI's serial killings - not that SHIKI will be too much of a problem for her.
  • She respects the Master Chief, because of his ability to keep a promise. Recently, she has developed a sympathy towards him due to the death of Cortana - their final farewell struck a chord with Homura, since it reminded her of her own farewell with Madoka. She even considered helping the Chief in his quest to help Cortana ascend, but has her hands full with her duties against Tzeentch.
    • As a "thank you" for her sympathy, the Chief gave her many of the Promethean weapons that he salvaged on the field so that she can add them to her Hyperspace Arsenal.
    • When The Flood first arrived in the Pantheon, she was one of those who stood alongside the Chief as they beat the corruption back. She has since sworn to aid him against it no matter what, and that was before she learned about how it has taken an interest in her fellow Puella Magi.
  • Doesn't like Flynn all that much, after he made a rather stupid offhand comment about being interested in fighting Kremhild Gretchen. Although he managed to convince her he wasn't serious, and didn't know exactly what that would entail besides, it's quite clear she hasn't forgiven him.
  • "Don't forget. Always somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember her, you are not alone."
  • Has been receiving a lot of visits from Death Phantom lately, who comes in the dead of night to whisper to her that Madoka never really understood Homura's real feelings for her. That deep down, she actually resents Madoka for choosing to selflessly save other magical girls at the cost of herself over the one person who had sacrificed everything to ensure her happiness and safety. That such selfish desires on Homura's part are fully justified and she every right to indulge in them. So far, the stoic magi's response is to repeatedly shoot at him with all her guns which is massively ineffective against an immortal Eldritch Abomination with mastery over time and space.
  • After a terse dinner conversation with Kasumi Raoh, the King of Fists, Homura is inspired by his courage and willingness to become a Raksha; the most monstrous of Devils, to consume all the lesser-evils in the world so that it may be pure and clean once more... unfortunately, she acts on his example in October of 2013.....
  • Has been noted recently to be spending an...inordinate amount of time with a strange blonde Magical Girl calling herself Louisa Ferre. Considering Madoka has an encyclopedic memory of every single Magical Girl to ever live, there was quite a bit of panic when her answer to who Louisa was was: "Who? I'm sorry, I've never heard of her."
    • The means Homura used to steal Madoka's powers during the Great Upheaval were revealed to have been supplied by Lucifer.
  • Has been placed under heavy protection for her own safety after the "Great Upheaval": as the driving entity behind the event, and her crimes against her friend Madoka, she has been declared Public Enemy Number One for the Magical Girl Sisterhood. Though her new power would be more than enough to stop any threats against her person, the Main House has declared her forbidden to use them against the Magical Girls for fear of unnecessary bloodshed. She is currently awaiting her trial.
    • When Vanitas's plot to forge the χ-Blade was revealed, Homura began trying to find a way to give Madoka her powers back. Lucifer managed to talk her down, noting that Madoka's heart has been clouded slightly by her hatred of him, meaning it's unlikely it'll work. Besides, Madoka can't be trusted with her powers just yet.
  • Visited the House of Ambiguity to speak to Kevin Levin regarding her actions during the "Great Upheaval". He reassures her that "Bunnycat deserves what you've done to him for being such a dick. There's no "right" or "Wrong" regarding that jerk. You deserve to be selfish for once."
    • Cy-5 recently visited her temple, and suddenly starts to feel compassionate with her. Also, they found much things in common.
  • Yuji Sakai and Isaac Clarke severed their ties with her after they heard about the "Great Upheaval" and the news concerning it.
    • Ties with Rika have also become strained. Rika is beginning to see in Homura the same part of herself that became Bernkastel. Rika however greatly appreciates Homura watching out for Satako, especially given actions by Lady Tremaine.
  • YHVH has placed Fate Worse than Death orders on both her and Madoka: Homura because she works for Lucifer now, and Madoka because He doesn't want to give her the chance to regain her powers. This, of course, has caused Homura to set her sights on the Great Will, and Lucifer can barely contain his delight: it was his ultimate plan to sweet-talk Homura into battling his archenemy, and YHVH had ended up earning her ire all on His own!
  • Is one of the few gods able to frighten Clu, as she once forced him to relive the final moments of the Original Clu through a vision while playing "I was waiting for this moment" in the background, out of payback for the genocide of the ISOs and for rectifying Tron and making him fight Sora. A similar effect was also used on Lady Tremaine (and her daughters prior to their banishment).
    • Because Sora forgave Homura for her actions, she warmed up to him quite a bit, which devastated her when he sacrificed himself to restore Kairi.
  • After becoming Homucifer and leaving the Magical Girl Sisterhood, she was designated as a target for "befriending" by the remaining two Mother Saints, Usagi and Sakura. She has defeated them each time, and after each failed attempt, she has warned them that "The next time we fight, I will kill the both of you". Usagi ultimately pointed out that there have been sixteen 'next times' to date, and overall, the two are hopeful that eventually they'll get through to her.
    • In the aftermath of the Pantheonic Rebellion, the God Emperor has begun trying to convince Homura to abandon Lucifer. Though there hasn't been any measurable success, Usagi and Sakura believe he has a chance to get through to her due to their close relationship in a certain universe. When asked why his trying, the Emperor merely responded that she reminds him of his son, Horus.
  • Eventually came across one Elpizo, one of the GUAC's newest recruits, who desired to hear about her part of the "Great Upheaval". To her surprise, he actually sympathized with her:She just wanted to keep her best friend safe and sound even if it meant becoming a monster, much like how his own quest to save the Reploid race turned him into one. They have since become allies, though Homura is wary of him: He willingly admitted that he would have killed every human alive if he had been allowed to succeed in his plans, and even now wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice them if it was convenient, which is a direct contrast to her own stance.
  • Has been recently been pelted by tomatoes at random intervals. The culprits? Her very own familiars who are always with her. On the rare occasion, they will dumped piles of garbage on top of her. Homura has done nothing to stop her familiars and let them continue their assault. Some feel that this is a form of self-hatred for her crime against Madoka. The Good-aligned deities who still care for and support her frequently try to stop the Familiars from doing so (usually without Homura herself knowing, as if she did know she'd likely tell them to stop because she "deserves it").
  • Was outraged to find out that Oriko Mikuni (Madoka's killer from another timeline) had ascended into the Pantheon.
  • Is allies with Bloody Marie, due to the fact that they both willing became monsters for their closest friends. That said, Homura is wary of the Skull Heart and what it could do to Madoka, though Marie has assured her time and again she has no intentions of seeking Madoka out. Double, on the other hand…
  • Ever since Lord Brevon used Madoka as a Human Shield during his siege of the Main House, Homura has been finding time to end him once and for all. If it weren't for Lucifer giving her other priorities to think of, she would be the only 'hero' Brevon would have no hope of prevailing against given her powers.
  • Is loathe to get into fights against Master Xehanort's "Young" incarnation, as his unique nature and abilities render him immune to her Time Stop power; the one time a fight between Good and Bad deities took place where she and he were among the opposing combatants, she responded to his startlingly fast Keyblade charge by pausing time to try to get a different angle-of-attack on him, and she nearly got her head taken off when he was 'pulled in' to Stopped Time with her and kept right on rushing at her as if nothing had happened.
    • Asuna Kagurazaka is also immune to it, due to her Anti-Magic. The one time Homura tried to escape an uncomfortable situation with Asuna nearby, she was startled and flummoxed as the redhead was seemingly pulled into stopped time with her, and subsequent attempts met the same result. Asuna, for her part, just flicked Homura on the forehead and told her to knock it off.
  • Since the Great Upheaval, Homura's already-friendly relationship with the Master Chief has grown by a significant degree; the Head Spartan and God of Super-Soldiers has declared himself her protector against the more militant Sisterhood members and any other deities who harbor thoughts of harming her, standing by her and providing her with badly-needed companionship and emotional support; some even say he has become her Living Emotional Crutch. As a result, Homura has developed an extremely high opinion of him (perhaps even close to that she holds for Madoka), reacting very badly to insults or actual attacks against him (as a few bitter Sisterhood members almost learned the hard and painful way). It's rumored that, on some level, she has even come to see him as a father.
  • Among the few people who not only pities Homura, but also sympathizes with her, is the self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe. As someone who also traveled back into time over and over in order to save his best friend/Love Interest, Okabe has tried many times to comfort her, but Homura has pushed him away every time. While she admits she's happy for him, she still holds guilt over her own actions.

  • "It could go either way" was the prophecy that Nerif uttered, before his dimension shattered from the battle between the Graven King and the Satrap literally going either way simultaneously. The Advisors of Cymurri had seized the Oracle and banished him from the universe before it occured. But it was too late for them.
    • It should be noted that Nerif doesn't as much predict the future as he shapes it. It's what differentiates him from actual fortune tellers. He does appear to be capable of predicting the future, it's just that he seem to prefer changing it.
    • Despite his status as a Greater God and reality warping prophecies, Nerif is still a Squishy Wizard when all is done and said. The problem is that nobody really wants to try and fight him, as it might just encourage him to make a threatening prophecy toward the offender. On the other hand, if they could fight fate...
  • Even though he's a radiant hero, fellow defenders of the radiant has no love for him. After all, he did get them assassinated in countless timelines to save his own skin (including himself!). It says a lot about him when his ally from his home universe is in fact a dire hero.
  • Has found bizarre company in the form of Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, mainly because he agree with them about one thing.
  • A lot of gods, especially Gordon Freeman, has noticed that Nerif's voice is eeriely similar to G-Man's if it was a little higher pitched. While there's no words on if there's any connections between the two, Nerif likes to mess with people about it.
  • As a malevolent fortune teller, he's naturally opposed by benevolent fortune tellers like Rose and Madame Xanadu.
    • Nerif has a strange relationship with fellow fortune teller Takuma Saiou. When he's brainwashed, they find each other to be welcome company. When he's not brainwashed, he opposes Nerif alongside Rose and Madame Xanadu. Nerif is currently trying to find a way to see if he can keep the brainwashing permanent or at least with a more lasting effect.
  • It is suggested by several gods that those who can defy fate can defy Nerif's prophecies. Nerif seems to agree, and will declare those who can do so as potential threats to his life. In fact, he has already foreseen several futures where these individuals slays him, prompting Nerif to look for assassins to take care of them.
    • After looking, Nerif decided to hire Skarlet to assassinate those who will kill him in the future. While he was going to look for a special item to give to Skarlet as a pre-emptive reward, she turned it down. The blood of her assassination contracts is enough reward to her.
  • Has a laundry list of prophecies to use in the event someone annoys him. You're welcome to ask him to predict your fate.
  • "I have an end in mind for you."

    Randall Ross 
Randall Ross, God of Time Portals (Mr. Ross, Lord Ross)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reg.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Timenado
  • Theme Songs: The Intro and The Timenado
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Constantly doing an Evil Laugh, gaining access to Time Travel, wanting to destroy all of time because he lost a volleyball game, using the Reset Button to heal himself
  • Domains: Time, Destruction, Revenge
  • Allies: The Lich, Mephiles the Dark, Caius Ballad, Lord Chaos, Nerif the Oracle, Dio Brando, Emperor Palpatine, Agatha Trunchbull, Dolores Umbridge
  • Enemies: Mordecai and Rigby, Benson, Skips, Pops the good Gods of the House of Time and Space, Nozdormu, Stewie Griffin, the rest of the House of School
  • Headbutting Villains with: The other evil gods of the House of Time and Space
  • Ascended after using the the time stream of his universe to destroy nearly all time with the Timenado, to the point where he brought Father Time to his knees. Technically, he was left decapitated in the Timenado and eventually Retgoned when his past self reconciled with Rigby, but Nekron was fond of the guy, so he used the Reset Button to bring the evil Ross to the Pantheon. For now, he's unaffiliated, but time will tell if that will change... that is if time hasn't been erased yet.
  • Mordecai and Rigby were very unhappy to hear that Ross had ascended to the Pantheon, and they were even more pissed when they found out it was the Ross who hadn't gotten their past selves' apology. The two are willing to do anything to make sure he doesn't succeed, even play The Realm of Darthon if they have to.
  • His temple is located on the far edge of the House of Time and Space, where it houses the Timenado, a massive vortex that sucks all time in the vicinity. Because of his possession of it, many gods in the House, both good and evil, dislike him. He has promised not to kill them, but he still attempts to take the Timenado out on a regular basis.
    • One god that doesn't fear him is Dio. While it's true that Ross' ultimate goal would render his Stand's power useless, they both can agree on one thing: decapitation sucks.
  • Has attempted to play some volleyball in the House of Sports. Whenever he goes there, they make sure that he loses fair and square and not because someone took the opportunity to score when everyone focused their attention on someone playing the saxophone poorly. Otherwise, they have a good time with him, though they are concerned with his use of volleyball bombs.
  • Because of their mutual desire to destroy all of time, he has become allies with Mephiles. The unintended consequences of his actions has also made him a favorite of the Lich.
    • He also caught the attention of Caius, what with being the God of erasing time. Upon further interaction, however, Caius became sick of Ross; because his desires were ultimately well-meaning, he found Ross' motives pathetic and trivial. Ross eventually won him over however, when he posed this question:
    "Listen, we have the same goal, and the same motives. Yet you're calling me craze-o? How would you like it, if everything you had, everything you did, amounted to nothing?"
  • One of his favorite things to do is go to the House of Villains and perform an Evil Laugh of someone there. A good deal of the GUAE are annoyed by his impersonations, but they still consider him a good potential ally.
    "Everybody hates your laugh."
  • Palpatine was quite amused when he heard that Ross' base of operations was reminiscent of something he would own. The two are known to trade with each other.
  • As someone who strives to destroy all of time, Ross has gained the enmity of Nozdormu. Ross does not care what the dragon thinks of him, but has tried on occasion to erase his fate from existence just to mess with him.
  • At some point, Ross decided that the easiest way to destroy time is to make sure that it never occurs in the first place, so he went back in time to kill Stewie. The combined power of those who thought he was completely insane prevented such an act from happening. From then on, Ross has been promised a Fate Worse than Death similar to what happened in the Timenado should he try to prevent the Big Bang again.
  • Decided to use his control of the time stream to amass an army for himself. He has since then gathered a large cause, certainly enough to rival the likes of Iskandar's. The only drawback to his idea is the fact that he enlisted people who don't know how to use laser guns or pilot spaceships.
  • Because of his attempt to kill Mordecai and Rigby when they were just high school students, he has gained the contempt of everyone in the House of School, Trunchbull being the exception.
  • Does not want to be associated with those known as The Problem Solverz, even though they were almost successful in destroying their universe.
  • Ross has became much more inactive with the ending of Regular Show. He was visited one last time by an older Mordecai and Rigby. Ross was not able to intimidate the older duo, especially snce they've saved the universe for good now. The older Rigby shuts down evil Ross with an Armor-Piercing Question:
    Epilogue Rigby: I get you're still upset. But if you're so good at time-traveling, why didn't you just time-traveled back in time to save your game or call a timeout instead of trying to destory everything?

Intermediate Gods

    Hiro Nakamura 
Hiro Nakamura, God of Time Travel (Carp)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HiroNakamura_2626.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Takezo Kensei sword. Alternately, a Nissan Versa.
  • Theme: The ''Heroes'' Ending Theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Fan Boys (especially Those Who Have Ascended), Geeks, Teleporters, Nice Ones to Wary of, Time Master, Waffles, Kid Samurai, Adjusting Your Glasses, Katanas Are Just Better, Badass Pacifist, Future Me Scares Me, I Just Wantto Be Special
  • Domains: Air, Courage, Time, Travel, Law, Good
  • Followers: Monica Raybrandt, Stocke
  • Allies: Claire Bennet, Noah Bennet, Mohinder Suresh, Sam Beckett, Dave Strider, Future Trunks, Kitty Pride, Jotaro Kujo, Crono, Emmett L. Brown, The entire House of Heroes and the GUAG Superhero Division
  • Enemies: The Master, Dio Brando, Victor von Doom, Kang the Conqueror, Porky Minch, Caius Ballad
  • Rivals: Sakuya Izayoi
  • An avid follower of the Doctor, he was awarded with ascension as he developed from an Idiot Hero to the badass time traveler he is today. Yatta! The Doctor himself was the one who formerly deified him for his deeds.
    • Stories of his adventures have reappeared in the form of a limited series. He was tasked with protecting and raising one of two next chosen ones of his world. Sadly, he had lost his powers in the process and performed a Heroic Sacrifice to save them. From there, he was released of his mortal coil and reclaimed his title.
  • When he found out there was a House of Heroes, his "Yatta!" of glee could be heard throughout his temple. He immediately teleported there afterwards, getting to meet all of his favorite superheroes.
    • Sees a lot of himself in Kitty Pride, as the two underwent character development in order to become one of the most powerful members of their respected groups. Shadowcat was quick to point out that he quoted the wrong issue where her future self went back in time.
  • Of all the deities he geeked about, none excited him more than meeting with Trunks. Many gods agree that many traits transferred over to Hiro, from the existence of a Future self to the use of Cool Swords.
  • Switching to another manga he loves, he befriended Jotaro. The two often team up when dealing with the time stopping Dio Brando.
  • One of the most fervent supporter for Crono's ascension, given he loved Chrono Trigger and even referenced him once, Hiro was ecstatic once the game hero finally got his spot in the Pantheon. He would also try to ascend Vaan of Final Fantasy XII if not for the significant number of deities against the decision.
  • Never a fan of human time travelers to begin with, The Master holds an especially high contempt for Hiro personally. Much of this hatred stems at the fact that Hiro is not only capable of singlehandedly stopping his plans, but can even defeat him in combat. The Master knows that intense preparations are in order if the Time Lord wants to permanently knock Hiro off the Pantheon.
  • Doctor Doom also set his eyes on the time traveler. He himself is not at risk as he already set parameters against pesky time travelers attempting to prevent his ascension. However, a being that can stop and move through time at will is an interesting tool. Doom hopes to steal this power of his in order to become the true master of time, even surpassing the Doctor himself.
  • His fellow Heroes deities have a falling out with many of their followers, namely due to the deteriorating quality of the show. A five year gap did little to please them. As a result, many deities have lost their divine powers. The remaining deities are currently discussing their next move, whether there are more to add or which ones to cut.
  • Kang wasn't pleased with his ascension. A time travel of that magnitude could easily uncover his future, and thus reveal his true intentions. He plans to go back in time and erase Hiro from the timestream. Those plans have hit a snag, as the Doctor saw to it that Kang doesn't succeed.
  • Often gets chided by Dr. Brown for constantly changing the future, creating paradoxes as a result. Granted he does get better at this, now making sure not to drastically change the timeline whenever he goes through time.
  • Swore to make sure that Porky's apocalyptic future doesn't come to pass, turning to the Earthbound gods for information. Porky secretly despises the traveler's optimistic nature, seeing it as a slap in the face for those who has seen the horrors time travel can induce.
  • His battles with Caius have been harrowing. Even with his time stopping powers, Caius always seems to know where he would end up. His summons and sheer power are also more than enough to match his katana skills. Good-aligned deities have since advised him to seek help if Caius is up to no good.
  • As a gaming fan, he is also familiar of the Bullet Hell game known as Touhou. Among them is another deity known for stopping time. The two aren't nearly as hostile ever since she left the GUAG, but they are far from friends. Sakuya thinks little of the human gods, while Hiro is appalled at how nonchalantly the speaks about feeding humans to her master.

    Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias 
Adrian Veidt, God of Successfully Timed Plans (Ozymandias)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ozy_2.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His outfit in this button form
  • Theme: "It Was Me"

  • Domains: Combat, Knowledge, Law, Trickery, Nobility
  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, Ambiguously Evil, Anti-Villain, Awesome by Analysis, The Bad Guy Wins Just As The Heroes Arrive For Him, Broken Ace, Charles Atlas Superpower, The Chessmaster, Contemplative Boss, Dark Messiah, Fallen Hero, Genius Bruiser, I Did What I Had to Do, Intelligence Equals Isolation, Knight Templar, Lack of Empathy, Self-Made Man, Technical Pacifist, Totalitarian Utilitarian, Visionary Villain
  • Herald: His "tiger" Bubastis
  • Allies: Mr. Freeze and anti-villains in general, YHVH, Revolver Ocelot, Lelouch vi Britannia
  • Enemies: Rorschach, The Comedian, The Superhero Division, especially Bruce Wayne/Batman, Dexter Morgan, Frank Castle/The Punisher, The Joker
  • Rivals: General Tarquin (friendly)
  • Opposes: The GUAD, especially Black Hand, Lucifer
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Light Yagami
  • Pities: High Councilor Kal-El/Regime Superman
  • Complicated Relationship: Dr. Manhattan, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre
  • The GUAG had been alerted that someone planted a bomb in a version of New York City. The perpetrator was said to be holed up in Antarctica. By the time their mortal followers arrived, the culprit had this to say:
    ??? "I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my masterstroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome? I did it thirty-five minutes ago."
  • One of the few villains that actually managed to achieve their goals, Ozymandias' actions were met with acclaim from the GUAE. However, he had declined to accept their invitation for godhood. That all chained when he discovered a more suitable benefactor. YHWH made an offer to maintain his perfect world, becoming deified in the process. The other factions has reason to worry about this development, as YH Wh now has one of the realms' best tacticians at his side.
    • While the Superhero Division condemned the ascension, Batman has made this case personal. Ozymandias was seen as one of his greatest pupils, mastering the art of laying out plans. He personally took responsibility for the event that killed millions of people and swore to bring the man to justice.
  • While many consider him a villain, Ozymandias doesn't want to be considered this. He claims his actions were for the betterment of his world. It's that attitude that Mr. Freeze sympathizes with. The God of Anti-Villainry was one of the deities that convinced him to become a god.
  • He was quick to secure an alliance with Revolver Ocelot, knowing that his manipulation skills rival his own. Most gods suspect that this is just a way to keep each other close, allowing them to see just how good their skills are.
  • He found another supporter in the form of Lelouch, who was impressed with how he managed to and all conflicts among the countries in his world.
  • As soon as his temple was built. He was attacked almost immediately by Rorschach, his former teammate. Ozymandias dispatched him just as quickly as last time, but is under constant threat from the masked man.
    • Dr. Manhattan, on the other hand, prefers to avoid Ozymandias. Adrian is doing the same, as he doesn't find the New 52 reboot an action as justifiable as his was.
    • As soon as The Comedian ascended, he tried to kill Ozymandias in retaliation to causing his Plot-Triggering Death in the first place. It failed, but Eddie still tries again whenever possible.
    • Nite Owl acknowledges Ozymandias' plan worked, but wonders if Adrian went too far in his scheme and prefers to keep his distance. Silk Spectre does the same.
  • Rorschach and the Comedian aren't the only one who have gunned for him. Other antiheroes such as Dexter Morgan and The Punisher have made attempts on his life. The two were only slightly more successful than Adrian's arch nemesis. With that said, he predicts that the three may form an alliance to take him down, not that he's worried of what they're capable of.
  • Although the two work in different factions, he maintains an amiable relationship with Tarquin. Both respect their ability to use their wits to outmaneuver their enemies. Ozymandias even offered to help overcome Tarquin's inability to coerce his son into the leading role.
  • He was surprised to find another god who made similar decisions to make his world a better place. Fellow GUAL teammate Regime Superman decided to take governing the world into his own hands after a devastating explosion on Metropolis. The two men support each others actions, citing how much safer their worlds have become as a result.
  • Many gods has suspected that Ozymandias was responsible with the disappearance of Dr. Manhattan from the Pantheon. It was his absence that allowed his plan to go off uncontested. The fact that he managed to fool one of the most powerful members of the House of Power frightens the opposing factions even more.
  • He recently came across an attempt at a Saturday morning version of the Watchmen. His response was... lukewarm to say the least. He did not like the comparisons to Shaggy and Scooby in particular.
  • Although he occasionally deliver blows against the GUAE, he sees the recently formed GUAD as the greatest threat to his plans. Killing millions for a just cause is one thing; killing every single living thing goes too far for his tastes. After putting in weeks of research, he devised their best chance of beating the group is through the Black Hand. The herald of the leader of the group, Black Hand could potentially serve as the tether between the two. Ozymandias hopes to capture him for testing, possibly finding a way to destroy Nekron through his host.
  • Light Yagami may be one of the most difficult allies to work together with, despite the fact that the two share many of the same followers.
  • One day, he found a card nailed to the wall of his temple with a knife. One side had the joker card; the other had a bloodied smiley face. It also happened to be laced with explosives: thankfully he discarded the card before it went off. At first he thought that the Comedian had returned, but further analysis led laid the blame on his patron. The Joker was not pleased in the loss of one of his most successful followers, and has been harassing his murderer ever since.
  • Many wonder if Ozymandias' paradise can continue into the foreseeable future. There are many deities, good and evil, who hope to expose the truth. The most likely cause to his downfall is a Rorschach's journal. One would think that Lucifer and the GUAC would be on the case... but to no avail. The God of Chaos personally paid a visit to Adrian's temple to inform him that he has no plans to break the truce... because he claims things will unfold by itself. To him, humans are naturally aligned with disorder. The nations will reach a disagreement and bicker once more, he merely wants to see if go through to prove himself right. That fact secretly frightened Ozymandias even more than if Lucifer became involved.
    • As it turns out... it didn't last. The nations of the world are at each other's throats again and Ozymandias himself has brain cancer. Many gods berated Ozymandias for his shortsightedness and questioned if he ever considered the possibility that Dr. Manhattan's abandonment of humanity was not motivated by indifference.

  • High Priests: The teens of Blackwood Mountain
  • Followers: Evan Treborn, Karen
  • Allies: The Doctor , Hiro Nakamura, Max Rockatansky, Imperator Furiosa, Frank West, L. B. Jeffries, Chronormu, Ann Takamaki
  • Enemies: The Wendigo
  • Opposes: Homura Akemi, House of Tainted Love, Agatha Trunchbull
  • Respected by: Daria Morgendorffer and Jane Lane
  • On Good Terms with: Various gods from Square Enix (who helped publish her game)
  • Fresh out of servitude of the Doctor, Max has secured a place in the Pantheon. While her placement was easy, the fate of her best friend Chloe was a hotly contested debate. The Court of the Gods wasn't sure whether to let her into the Pantheon or not, reflecting Max's decision on whether to save Chloe or let her die. It was eventually agreed that Chloe can stay… but only for half of each day.
    • Debate has been raging whether Max truly has feelings for Chloe. Given her ability to try out multiple timelines, gaining concrete evidence has been particularly difficult. Neither goddess nor herald has commented on this.
    • Many followers offered the chance of being her high priest(ess). In the end, Max chose a group of teens who came into being the same year as her. As a result, Max has seen an increase of Wendigo sightings near her temple. While she has been able to fend them off, their presence has her worried. Whether one of them may be one of their roommates or not has yet to be determined.
  • The Doctor quietly congratulated the girl on her ascension. While this incarnation wasn't as cheerful over the event, he does feel remorse for her for suffering the consequences of constant time travel.
    • He has been crucial with helping her deal with an obscene about of memories from going through multiple timelines. To him, she reminds him of a less antagonistic Ashildr. Their new-found powers have changed the girls in similar ways, giving them more confidence.
  • Has turned to Hiro for guidance on how to use her powers for good. While she isn't as enthusiastic as she once was, she figured her powers could give people a hand. The Time Master was delighted to have a student under his belt.
  • It was only later on that she found out there was an actual Mad Max in the Pantheon. The artist that she was, she sought after the man to take some pictures. The God of Desert Punk reluctantly complied, not used to such celebrity. He's allowed others to call her Mad Max for now.
    • Oddly enough, she has had an easier time connecting with Furiosa. A woman not known for keeping close allies, Furiosa has nevertheless enjoyed her company. She at least sympathies with the girl for all the turmoil she went through.
  • Despite her actions and the ease she has with using her powers, she has warned her followers to be wary of their decisions as they could have dire consequences in their worlds. Those who couldn't stand Homura's latest decision has flocked to Max's temple as a result, creating tension between the two factions. Max herself is conflicted on this given her own final choice: sacrifice Chloe or sacrifice Arcadia Bay.
  • Her photography has attracted the attention of Frank West, who asked her if he could take a look at them. Max is a bit more hesitant with looking at his photos, not exactly a fan of war, but she is at least appreciative of someone who likes cameras as much as her.
  • Jeffries was impressed with her investigation skills, offering her lessons on how to be a better detective. Max decided to take a chance, knowing that her powers would help immensely in that regard. Lisa Fremont on her part wanted to improve her fashion choices, to which Max kindly rebuffed her.
  • Absolutely loathes the subhouse of Tainted Love and Agatha Trunchbull for obvious reasons: The reason being that her seemingly charming teacher Mr. Jefferson was actually a creep and a Serial Killer, luring young girls to drug them, take pictures and eventually kill them.
    • Being someone who has had the "luxury" of being lusted over by a teacher, though Kamoshida was…physically worse than Jefferson, Ann sympathizes with Max for what she's been through.
      • They've also both had the frightening experience of seeing a friend (Kate Marsh and Shiho Suzui) committing suicide by jumping off a roof during school. One difference is that Ann had no chance to stop her friend while Max did. Another is that Shiho survives (though with broken legs) while Kate may or may not depending on Max's actions. A third is that while the school faculty ultimately doesn't do much about it, Shujin's is much more tactless about it while Blackwell's at least makes a show of effort.
  • Daria may have a low esteem for those in the Pantheon, but even she can respect Max for going through all that trauma. She has proven to be a valuable ally when dealing with Alpha Bitches and others who criticize her or Chloe's looks. Jane Lane is also interested in her photography, and Max can't help but see Chloe in the artist.
  • Chronormu has visited her on more than one occasion about her use of powers. She knows Max's intentions are good, but warns her against changing the timeline of the Pantheon. The consequences on her world was bad enough, changing such events such as the Great Upheaval may have a devastating effect on the area. With that said, she is impressed with how casually Max is able to effectively change timelines for such a young girl.
  • Having faced herself in her nightmares, even though she didn't get to confront it before Chloe in that dream butted in and the nightmare changed yet again, she decided perhaps facing herself in the TV World might help her somewhat. But neither she nor the Investigation Team were prepared for what they saw; rather than one Shadow Max, there were several of them, sort of like one alternate version of the confrontation with Shadow Rise. And they all hammered into her the consequences of everything she could've ever done, like not being there for Kate to prevent her suicide, siding with Chloe instead of her stepdad David Madsen or vice-versa, leaving the Prices in deep debt by saving Chloe's father William from his death, endangering Victoria Chase by warning her about the Dark Room, allowing Warren Graham to brutally beat up Nathan Prescott, getting Frank Bowers' dog killed by luring him to the road, and so on, as well as turning back time just to get the right responses from others (which people and the Max in the nightmare read as manipulative), but the biggest ones were the ones that berated her for finally giving up on Chloe after trying so hard to save her, and the one condemning her for sacrificing an entire town just for one friend who she had to save several times with her powers. The pressure of all that led to her denying her Shadow, which then gone berserk, and unfortunately for the Persona-users, Shadow Max has similar Time Travel powers as the real Max and effortlessly dodged everything they could throw at her, except for huge area-of-effect attacks and things she can't see coming (like Wind attacks). And eventually, Shadow Max grew fatigued as the real Max would and the party was finally able to take her down. Having had enough time to live with the choices she made as well as advice from other time-travelers in the Pantheon, Max was able to accept her Shadow and get a Persona.
  • Faces a lot of flak from those who hated Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (of which there are a lot) for liking it. Max doesn't care one bit.
    • She's on good terms with various Square Enix godsnote  and many Final Fantasy gods are confused as to why she would like The Spirits Within. One god she doesn't know how to feel is that of Caius Ballard, who caused the destruction of time in order to stop his beloved Yuel from being constantly resurrected. She does admit that, under different circumstances, she'd probably end up like him if it meant saving Chloe.
  • Is now hearing the story of how Chloe met Rachel Amber and is curious to see the special powers Rachel, apparently, possesses. However, she's unable to determine whether Rachel really does have fire powers gifted by the Raven God or it's just a coincidence.
  • Has learned that a comic chronicling the adventures of her where she sacrificed Arcadia Bay is being produced with many gods eagerly wondering what will happen next.

    Nox (Wakfu
Nox, God of Wrong Time-Travel Savvy (Noximillien Coxen)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nox_24898.jpg
  • Lesser God; Becomes a Greater God when using the Eliacube
  • Symbol: His mask
  • Theme Song: Nox Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil with tendencies of Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Tragically lost his family and wishes to travel back time to be reunited with them, no matter the costs; A powerful Manipulator of Time Magic who can stop time itself; An ancient clock maker who became a terrifying Anti-Villain; Becoming increasingly insane after discovering the Eliacube; A Bad Boss who was able to turn back time which was supposed to be impossible, but failed to travel back farther than a mere twenty minutes
  • Domains: Clockwork, Bad Ideas, Traveling Back in Time
  • Opposed by: Dragons and sentient plants; includes Bahamut, Grima, Audrey, those who strongly abhor the use of life-energy such as Wakfu as a means to travel back in time; includes The Pantheonic Time Police, The Dahaka, Edward Elric, Alphonse Elric
  • Opposes: Abusive or neglectful parents and spouses; includes Relius Clover, Dr. Sofia Lamb, Ghetsis Harmonia, as well as those who would abuse time travel for evil purposes; includes Eobard Thawne/The Reverse-Flash, Porky Minch
  • Respects: Doting and protective parents and spouses; includes Edward Newgate/Whitebeard, Bryan Mills, Mufasa, Sophitia Alexandra
  • Followers: Time travelers, especially those who were wrong about the mechanics of time travel
  • While many of the people in the World of Twelve believed that Nox had perished after his attempt to drain Wakfu from the Tree of Life, he had in fact ascended into the Pantheon after leaving behind his mortal vessel.
  • While many of the gods sympathized with his desire to be reunited with his family, many also agree that he must not make a second attempt to travel back in time to prevent dire consequences. Future Trunks and the Dahaka in particular are especially dedicated/aggressive in ensuring that, which in Trunks' case would later extend to the Pantheonic Time Police and their associates.
  • Nox bears an absolute loathing for abusive or neglectful spouses and parents as they remind him of how he neglected his own beloved family after he obtained the Eliacube. As such, he strongly opposes Relius Clover, Sofia Lamb and Ghetsis Harmonia. On the flip side, he has a twisted sense of respect for parents who are willing to risk their own lives to protect their children such as Edward Newgate, Bryan Mills, Mufasa, and Sophitia.
  • Given the atrocities he forced himself to commit in his attempt to achieve time travel and his hopes to undo all of that along with his failure toward his family, the likes of Eobard Thawne and Porky Minch disgust Nox for their casual use of time travel with the explicit intent to make people suffer and do other evil things.
  • Edward and Alphonse Elric oppose Nox with exceptional aggression due to his usage of Wakfu as a source of energy to travel back in time which reminds them of the usage of Philosopher's Stones. Dragons, including Bahamut and even Grima, also oppose Nox given his past obsession to drain Wakfu from dragons, and his past success in defeating Grougaloragran with the aid of the Eliacube. Even sentient plants such as Audrey are wary if not terrified of him.
  • Nox has recently targeted Emmett L. Brown to obtain his time machine after realizing that his version can enable time travel into the past with a significantly greater chance of success. Needless to say, measures were taken to prevent Nox from obtaining the time machine as the majority of the gods do not want to imagine the possible consequences of his actions.

  • When the universe was rebooted soon after his wait ended, the pre-reboot version ascended to Godhood, while the post-reboot version remains a man.
    • There is, however a fair amount of mental overlap between the two, however, mostly in the form of the god attempting to send knowledge and messages to his human counterpart in an attempt at minimizing the human version's number of deaths.
    • That's not to say the versions are wholly seperate as well. The Doctor has often caught Rory just staring in the distance, most likely due to remembering his centuries as the Last Centurion.
  • Is known to spend a great deal of time with Kenny, God of Revolving Door Death. They have a lot in common. He has also been seen comparing heoric exploits with Neville Longbottom and comiserating over the fact that if THEY were the main character, evil would have been wiped out three seasons ago.
  • Is rumored to be The New Chuck Norris. Neither Rory nor Chuck will address these rumors.
  • Has punched out The Doctor and Hitler.
  • Was absolutely happy to find his wife in the Pantheon, and the two reunited with a hug.
  • Despite the snark between him and The Doctor, the two place great trust with another. Many people make alot of jokes on how the Doctor's Nurse is just as badass.
