    Homura Akemi 
Homura Akemi, Goddess of Retroactive Preparation (Homerun, Homu, Homuhomu, Homurika, Homulily, The Nutcracker Queen, Devil Homura, Homucifer)

Homura's Original Appearance 
After Madoka's Ascension 
Devil Homura 
  • 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 those who sympathizes with Homura 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.
  • Penelope Mouse is considered to be Homura's polar opposite, and it shows. Both are definitions of selfish love, but while Homura is the embodiment of love and generally cares for Madoka, Penelope is the embodiment of ambition, and doesn't love Bentley at all. Homura wants Madoka to have the happy life with her family that she deserves, even if it causes their loss of friendship and possible enmity, but Penelope just wants to control Bentley for his skills, and is willing to go as far as to murder his Family of Choice, leading them to become enemies. In the end, Homura becomes a self-hating Anti-Villain who admits her crimes, while Penelope becomes a straight up Classic Villain who refuses to accept fault for her actions.
  • "Don't forget. Always somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember her, you are not alone."

    Whis 
Whis, Divine Keeper of the Reset Button (Whys, Whiz, Wiss, Weiss, Universe 7 Angel)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whis_5_6.png
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: his symbol or his staff
  • Alignment: True Neutral, leaning towards Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Being super powerful and rather campy, Big Eater, resetting time, being an Eccentric Mentor, Our Angels Are Different
  • Heralds: Vados (his sister and Universe 6 counterpart)
  • Superior: Grand Zeno (present and future)
  • Allies: Beerus, Son Goku, Vegeta (his disciples), Bulma, Chronoa, Future Trunks, Ace, Nozdormu, Barry Allen/The Flash, any good chef in the pantheon
  • Enemies: None (nobody's that stupid)
  • Opposed by: Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Closely Watching: Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn, Android 21, Broly: BR
  • The mysterious and somewhat androgynous retainer of Beerus the Destroyer, Whis was first introduced to the Dragon Ball mythos at his master's side, transporting him to Earth and accompanying him to a party where it was said he would find powerful Super Saiyans and potentially a Super Saiyan God. Quickly his personality was established, as he often offered light snark here and there towards the more inane moments around him, enjoyed Bulma's food immensely, and stood and watched through his master's entire fight with the Dragon Team and Son Goku as though it was a popcorn flick. The reason for this was revealed after the fight ended: he's actually Beerus's teacher, and the only other being in their specific universe to be stronger than Beerus.
    • Shortly after Beerus ascended, Whis followed suit to make sure that Beerus was taking care of himself and not doing anything stupid — as well as to see if a suitable successor for Beerus' position can be found here. Much to the cat's 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 even better than the Evil Containment Wave. Yes, the same Evil Containment Wave 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.
  • Speaking of heroes of speed and time, Whis is on good terms with the Supreme Kai of Time and her Time Patrol, which has expanded in the Pantheon as the Pantheonic Time Police.
  • Also has a spot in the Main House.

  • Potential mentors: Son Goku, Piccolo, Krillin, Vegeta, Captain Ginyu, Gohan and Videl, Gotenksnote , Mr. Satan, Android 18, Frieza, Cell, Beerus, Yamcha, Tien Shinhan)
  • Enemies: Fused Zamasu, Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash, Lord English, Rassilon, The Time Eater, Dio Brando, Randall Ross, Boris the Animal, Dark Danny, Flowey (except not really), Aku, SKYNET, The Master, Melkor, those who threaten the stability of time
  • Opposes: Homura Akemi
  • The Time Patrol are a group of warriors who try to keep history going off track and turn out negatively, which the Time Breakers seek. To do so, they try to change the altered events to their original flow. It's not exact, but close enough. Through Shenron, a warrior was wished to help with their goals, resulting in "Ace", the Future Warrior and custom hero of Dragon Ball Xenoverse.
  • As a Virtual Paper Doll he can be any of five different species, or female. His current form and name is simply the most "canon" example. He is able to flip through the different custom examples and species, but only in the House of Gaming. He's similar to (Insert Name Here) and mainly an avatar, but due to his alignment with the Time Patrol he's presumably set as a Lawful Good character regardless.
  • Team Four Star had their own incarnation of Ace, a black Majin called Dumplin. Ace would rather not talk about it, since that incarnation eventually went on to become the new Demon God after Demigra, and then freaking MR. POPO!
  • Because of his flexible nature due to game design, he finds himself gravitating towards Vent and Aile as they use the power of famous Reploids like he can take the power of famed species in the Dragon Ball universe. That, and he appreciates the help. Cosmos found he was a natural when it came to working in the Grand United Alliance of Good, though is strictly against changing history for the better unless absolutely necessary. He's just trying to get it close enough so evil and misguided time travelers don't make it worse.
  • Able to get important Dragon Ball characters to help mentor him, even evil ones like Frieza. Cell in particular acts more of an Affably Evil Challenge Seeker around him, though with Brutal Honesty. As such, some members of the Grand United Alliance of Evil who don't want time to be messed with or have more Affably Evil or Well-Intentioned Extremist attributes are willing to mentor for a bit. This annoys Melkor greatly as he hates the idea of good and evil fraternizing on principle, and paranoid this will give the GUAG more of an edge.
  • The one Dragon Ball character that refuses to entertain a moment's notice with Ace is Zamasu. Maybe his Future Zamasu incarnation, but definitely not Fused Zamasu. Of course, basically no Dragon Ball god can stand him, so that's hardly surprising. The fact that Zamasu has a beef with the Time Patrol despite hating humanity most for breaking the time travel taboo shows what a hypocritical lunatic he is.
  • All those who threaten the natural flow of time for negative ends will face Ace's wrath. This doesn't just include those who change history. Aku created a Villain World by sending Jack to the future and the Time Patrol doesn't admonish Jack from going back to where he last left off fighting Aku. Dio Brando's schemes of manipulating time through The World are also condemned by Ace.
  • As the Pantheonic representative for the Time Breakers, Reverse-Flash is one of the biggest enemies of the Future Warrior, and he's doing what he can to ensure the rest of the Time Breakers don't join him. Others on top of his shit list are Rassilon (due to his enormous power over time and willingness to use the Final Sanction to destroy time itself), Lord English (an extreme Omnicidal Maniac with vast power over time), and the Time Eater (due to it eating time and removing events from history).
  • The Pantheonic Time Police was glad to see Ace ascend, especially Chronoa. Clockwork has found him quite useful for keeping the order of time. Because of his ability to correct timelines to be almost unchanged, the Author finds him useful to clean up the Timey-Wimey Ball and better than George in that, who hates time travel and is glad Ace is taking the potential burden away from him.
  • The Doctor likes him well enough, though wonders if he based his name after his companion as the 7th Doctor. Ace is a close ally to the Master of Chaldea, as their entire mission is to preserve humanity, with their main goal in Act One is to fix the distortions of the different points in history. Though Ace is more uncertain on Act 2 as it's a more morally ambiguous mission of eliminating divergent timelines (and the humanity therein) so much they don't have a chance of survival, even if it's to preserve mankind.
  • Not too pleased by Homer Simpson bungling around with a time travel toaster. He doesn't consider the timeline where everyone has lizard tongues to be a Close-Enough Timeline, though does understand his frustration at the end.
  • While understanding why she did it, Ace doesn't care for Homura Akemi as she keeps going back to save Madoka no matter what the cost, even if it means becoming her enemy. Ace is trying to keep the timeline stable, and knows that even a well-intentioned change can go badly. Less concerning but still annoying are gods who want and/or try to kill their younger or older selves because of how it messes with history, such as EMIYA aka Archer. That said, of those who want to commit literal murder-suicide, his contempt is mostly directed at Boris the Animal for doing so only because he wants to sabotage history to boot.

    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.
  • Conflicting Opinions/Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Chronoa, Chronormu, Nozdormu, Liu Kang, Kitana, and about anyone who considers his methods too extreme.
  • Enemies in general: Those that try to defy their fate or change the past.
  • Opposes: Water deities.
  • 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-travelling 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 chasing 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 travelling (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 travellers 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.
    • Through the "New Era" revelations, The Dahaka was made aware of the manipulations of Kronika being ultimately reponsible for the turns to darkness, temporal havoc, and constant falling outs between Liu Kang and Raiden (as well as Arthas' influence in preserving Netherrealm Emperor Liu Kang and Kitana from Timeline X in the Pantheon). While many would've gone easy on Raiden in light of this information, The Dahaka is an absolutist. He takes the opposite approach and has simply added Arthas and Kronika to his list of targets. With Liu Kang defeating Kronika to replace her as the Keeper of Time and bringing Kitana in as his helpmeet, The Dahaka is carefully watching them. If they use their newfound powers to manipulate anything in their favor rather than simply protect the natural flow of time, they will be next on his hitlist.
  • 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.
  • Also has a seat in the Pantheon Caretakers in the Main House.

  • Beloved-Brother and Worthy Opponent: Jonathan Joestar
  • Special Relationship: Giorno Giovanna
  • Evil Counterpart to: Gasper Vladi
  • One of the earlier beings in the Pantheon, Dio gained this title due to showing the dangers present when one stopped time. True, he was eventually stopped by Jotaro Kujo, but the effect of his time-stopping abilities and the extent of danger he could do with it has passed down through legends. In fact, he might babble for many many seconds despite the limit saying 'he can only stop time for 9 seconds' at most.
  • Although his domain is theoretically quite limited, Dio's ability to act when everything else is stopped makes him quite dangerous, even without his equally-skilled followers. His pupil Sakuya, however, has displayed signs of potentially exceeding his abilities, especially with her mistress backing her...
    • This idea was once brought to his attention. His reply, given in a grand display in front of all of his fanatic priests and priestesses naturally, was to remind them that due to his ascension he is no longer bound by his (borrowed) mortal body and has thus become fully synchronized with The World and could stop time indefinitely at a whim. The announcement swiftly spread throughout the Pantheon and has caused quite a few deities to revise their schemes. Rumor has it that Jonathan was seen meeting with Sakuya not long after...
    • Held Remilia Scarlet captive for a long time in order to keep Sakuya under his control as his subordinate. Eventually, Sakuya got sick of it, and got the help of the rest of the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew and Seija Kijin to save Remilia and make her a goddess to make sure it will not happen again.
    • Probably because the fact that Sakuya managed to get away with her punishment, Dio attacked her one day, thinking that he, Dio, would kill her in just a minute. Not only was he technically right and wrong on the time, but the student managed to overcome the master. And to add insult to injury, once Dio managed to recover from the battle, Kenshiro send him flying with a swift kick.
      • Following this, Joel decided to take care of Sakuya, and with the help of Doomguy, he managed to do so. Since then, Joel has gained the respect of the vampire, though his relationship with Pucci remains tense.
  • When you hear his battle cry ("ZA WARUDO!") give yourself plenty of time to run, or else you will be crushed under a giant steamroller.
  • Sakuya's mistress Remilia introduced Dio to Dracula. Being a fellow vampire, Dio quickly tolerated him and accepted one of Drac's minions Zephyr as one of his pupils.
    • Has used the fact that he sounds like Dracula to further deepen their alliance.
  • Has expressed disdain against Terumi for trying to copy his style, as well as his racism towards Dio's "kinsmen". He has recently gotten a little satisfied when he saw someone called The Quarter Guy, who used to call him to drop a steamroller on anyone the latter doesn't like, and Terumi happens to be a target. Though he does enjoy that eventually, he's sounding like Terumi's nemesis.
    • Eventually Terumi did try to stage a takeover. However, before he could finish it, even with the power of Susano'o, he received quite a setback thanks to said nemesis, and Dio managed to land a counter attack and drove him out. As a final taunt and ridicule, Dio let this out:
  • Once tried to goad Kurei to become allies with him, due to his share of what Kurei entailed: His love for his mom. However, Kurei flat out shot down his offer in disgust, telling Dio that his utter depravity made his love for his mother insignificant and unworthy of his allegiance. In a rage, Dio declared his enmity and the two of them have become enemies.
  • He's not pleased that Jotaro Kujo, one of his foes, ascended.
    • On the other hand, he's quite happy that one of his most trusted companions, Enrico Pucci, is in the Pantheon, and both are planning to recreate Made In Heaven.
    • Even happier with finding out that one of his most loyal companions Vanilla Ice has ascended.
  • Dio has discovered that, because of him no longer being bound to his (borrowed) mortal body, it had allowed Jonathan´s life energy to pass on and allow him to ascend to the Pantheon proper. Jonathan´s ascension has led Dio massive amounts of stress as Jonathan was Dio´s one true rival and losing his body not only is Dio´s biggest loss, but it ultimately puts another wrench in his plans to rid the Joestars of his destiny. Dio spends more time alone nowadays, and despite being the same charismatic and stylish Dio in front of everyone as he has always been, once in a while audible noises of stuff breaking and flesh being torn apart are heard from his mansion.
    • With that being said, Dio is actually quite cordial, if not outright pleasant, when interacting with Jonathan; he is after all the man won his impossible-to-earn respect with his sheer courage, tenacity, nobility and kindness, not to mention the only person before Pucci to love him for who he is, horrid flaws included. He makes it a point of principle to treat and challenge Jonathan with courtesy, fairness and respect and will bring violent-retribution on anyone who dares to speak ill of, disrespect or humiliate his beloved archnemesis step-brother.
    • Even though Jonathan for his part appreciates Dio's love for him, this twisted sense of honor further saddens him as it hints Dio could once have had the potential to be a hero among heroes if only he had grown up with love and kindness.
      • It has been said that Jonathan has occasionally been spotted at the House of Sports playing Rugby with Dio, who curiously does not use The World to stop time and cheat. They would clasp hands and congratulate each other's skills, affectionately stating "just like old times." Once, as it was reported by Sakuya sneaking nearby, Jonathan was said to have held Dio in a tight brotherly embrace, with the latter profusely crying for the former to forgive the desecration of his body. When asked, Dio would, of course, deny it ("Tears? I DIO am above such petty mortal weakness!! Hahahahaha!"). Nearby, father Pucci would smile knowingly, understanding the denial to be entirely false.
  • Also likes to begin most of his sentences with saying "I, Dio"
  • Dio has expressed interest in forming an alliance with Kars, as he feels that using the Red Stone Of Aja to become the Ultimate Lifeform himself could greatly increase his abilities. Such an event was also discovered to have happened in the alternate Jojo timeline described in the novel "Jorge Joestar". However, Dio has quickly abandoned this idea after discovering that Kars no longer has the Red Stone.
  • Dio is one of the Pantheon´s only vampires who does not flee at the very sight of Wario, as garlic has no effect on him. He admires Wario's determination but ultimately finds him too disgusting to even consider an alliance.
  • Despite both of them being depraved asshats, Dio absolutely despises Ragyo, and anyone who says otherwise will be personally pummeled by him. This isn't helped by the fact that he considers her to be a ripoff of him for similar reasons towards Yuuki Terumi and that there have been numerous comparisons between Ragyo and Dio. However, he does seem to prefer Nui better.
  • He nearly had a coronary when he saw this, and almost had an aneurysm when Terumi (hearing about Dio's response to that video) trolled him by showing him this.
  • Once participated in a tournament featuring other Shonen Jump characters. He was supposed to show up in the next tournament, but he wasn't present for reasons unknown.
  • Decided to forge an alliance with Hisoka after noticing how similar he was to himself. Of course, the fact that he kind of sounds like Giorno hasn't escaped him.
  • Has made it his mission not to break his leg. He hasn't been hearing the end of that as of late.
  • Once encountered Saitama and (for lack of a better word), fought him. Dio has since then reserved a good amount of his time trying to get back at the Caped Baldy.
  • Started playing Poker and drinking wine at the Bad-Guy Bar of the Pantheons with one Sugou Nobuyuki, former King-Oberon of Alfheim Online (with Darby Senior as the dealer, naturally); aside from also being a perverted blond sociopath without an ounce of decency or morality, Dio enjoys his company as he sounds exactly like him when speaking Japanese.
  • Is rather confrontational whenever he sees strangers near his temple. If he sees someone coming closer to enter, expect him to say "Oh, you're approaching me?"
  • "You were a fool to attack me. I have disowned my weakness in favor of life everlasting!"

  • Conflicting Opinion towards: Syndrome
  • Fears: Jon Osterman/Doctor Manhattan
  • 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 travelled 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 a while 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.
    • Though 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 travelling back to cause people to die early or even be erased altogether, he managed to twistedly work his way up to become 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 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-travelling 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.
  • Developed a good degree of animosity towards Ray Palmer, seeing as he was defeated by Oliver, Barry and Ronnie once thanks to "Nanites, courtesy of Ray Palmer". He did return the favour by forcibly extracting Ray's heart out of his chest and showing it to him before the latter died. Thanks to that, Ray hates Thawne too. It also doesn't help in that he killed Rex Tyler, causing Ray and his friends to be stranded in time for months.
  • Was surprised to hear of the ascension of his successor (Or predecessor?) Hunter Zolomon. Thawne commends him for actually managing to damage the Speed Force into disabling the ability to time travel. Zolomon, however, is more interested in making heroes better to Thawne's dismay. The two would often work together, but its strained at best.
  • "Oh, I'm not like the Flash at all. Some would say I'm the reverse"

  • Headbutting Villains with: The other evil gods of the House of Time and Space
  • Ascended after using 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 the time, he has become allies with Mephiles. The unintended consequences of his actions have 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 become 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-travelling, why didn't you just time-travelled back in time to save your game or call a timeout instead of trying to destroy everything?

  • Followers: Monica Raybrandt, Stocke
  • Allies: Claire Bennet, Noah Bennet, Mohinder Suresh, Sam Beckett, 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 traveller 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.

  • 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 constantly being 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 written with many gods eagerly wondering what will happen next. This comic explores a Max who could venture alternate timelines and settled down in one timeline where Chloe and Rachel are a couple in Santa Monica.

    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 or this
  • 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/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.

    Rory Pond/Williams 
Rory Williams Pond, God of The Slow Path (Rory Arthur Williams, Rory the Roman, The Last Centurion, The Man Who Waited)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/doctor_who_s6_arthur_darvill_001.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The uniform of a Roman centurion
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Undying Loyalty to love, Those who choose to The Slow Path, Atoning for one's sins, Dogged Nice Guys, being uncomfortably death-prone, Shrouded in Myth, Henpecked Husbandry, Taking a level in badass
  • Domains: Courage, Love, Time, Loyalty
  • Allies: Amelia Pond, (his wife) The Doctor (his son in law), Kenny McCormick, Neville Longbottom, River Tam
  • Enemies: The Dalek Emperor, the Nestene Consciousness
  • Ascended to divinity as a reward for spending close to two thousand years as a robot guarding his comatose love from death.
  • 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.
