  • Chronoa is the Supreme Kai of Time, in charge of keeping the timelines together so that they do not create too many divergent points and in turn start unravelling the Dragon Ball multiverse. For this purpose, she created an organization called the Time Patrol based in Conton City (formerly Toki Toki City, named after her magical pet bird), a distant location in Universe 7 connected to the Time Nest.
  • The Time Patrol was organized mainly off the back of Future Trunks, who with his mother's time machine had travelled back in time and altered the course of the main timeline by warning the Z-Fighters about the android threat. She guilt-tripped him about committing the divine taboo and galactic crime of time travel and asked him to atone by serving at her side in her time-guarding duties, though she failed to inform him that, as the only being aside from Zeno's angels with the legal authority to cross through time, she was actually legitimizing his actions by doing so. Not only had she planned to deal with Cell herself (who had travelled back even further into the main timeline than Trunks himself did) and thus Trunks' actions worked out in her favor, his Time Patrol status placed everything he did under her umbrella.
    • Androids 17 and 18, the good versions at least, are grateful that she allowed them to become who they are by not deleting Trunks' initial changes in time. Ditto for 16, whose (re?)activation would not have happened otherwise.
  • Once news entered the Pantheon of the ascension of Eobard Thawne, an evil speedster whose M.O. involves going back in time to make people suffer, being aided by the Time Breakers as his followers, Future Trunks instantly sought out Thawne's famous arch-enemy Barry Allen and directed him to Toki Toki City to notify Chronoa. She used her power to enter the Pantheon and petition for a seat in short order in order to counterbalance Thawne, only for the meeting to be interrupted by Sailor Pluto via the Door of Space-Time. Pluto's request for her temple with the Gates of Time to be reinserted back into the Pantheon was then added to Chronoa's petition, gaining the approval of the Court of the Gods due to what Thawne did putting everyone on such heavy guard.
  • Naturally, she and Zamasu are completely opposed to one another. In a different version of the future timeline, it's Zamasu rather than Chronoa who intercepts Trunks' actions, and it becomes one of the rogue apprentice Kai's points of condemnation against mortals altogether, convincing Future Zamasu to align with Goku Black in the Zero Mortals crusade. Zamasu condemns Chronoa's delegation to Trunks and the rest of the Time Patrol as a mark of inaction and laziness in her duties, as well as a desecration of her godhood by allowing mortals to represent her. She, in turn, can't stand the evil that Zamasu visited upon her assistant and friend Trunks, nor how incredibly short-sighted and violently self-righteous he is. The only good that came of anything he ever did was the fact that it made Trunks more decisive and stronger here in the Pantheon.
    • Eventually their two lines crossed thanks to leftover historical distortions from the Time Breakers' efforts to raise the Demon World, resulting in several different alterations that the Time Patrol was forced to stop so that Zamasu couldn't kill Trunks. When Zamasu realized he hadn't killed all the remaining gods, he warned the Time Patrol that as soon as he finished with them and the Saiyans, the Supreme Kai of Time was next. Targeting the Time Nest even helped him maintain coherence in his Infinite state after his fused body was destroyed by Trunks... but then Zeno, the Omni King of their multiverse, destroyed him.
  • Is said to possibly be an alternate version of Chronos, the God of Time. The one in the Pantheon doesn't have an opinion on the subject but is one of many time deities who does approve that she continues to maintain the integrity of the Scroll of Eternity.
  • When Cell heard about Chronoa who would've come after him had Future Trunks not done so, he decided to enter her territory and try to attack her, only to be completely rebuffed by Trunks even in his perfect form.
  • She's a huge fan of Dialga, the Pokémon of Time who's taken on Trunks as a partner in the Pantheon, seeing Dialga as a less cute but more imposing and badass counterpart to Tokitoki. Because of this, she's inducted Dialga into her Time Patrol. They've also formed a healthy alliance with Sailor Pluto, sometimes including Sailors Chibi Moon and Saturn as well, partly out of gratitude for helping Setsuna get back her place in the Pantheon. She's also finally met Clockwork, who helped out Trunks on occasion since before she even ascended. However, she has no intention on joining forces with the Dahaka; while their goals do ultimately align and she appreciates its dedication to guarding the timeline, the Dahaka leaves no room for exceptions and cares little to nothing about good or evil, to the point of having even gone after Trunks as well as some friends of his.
    • The SHOCKER organization is on her team's radar as one of the most dangerous time travelling threats due to their propensity to use time manipulation to retroactively Take Over the World. Dio Brando is also a high priority threat due to his superior time-stopping abilities and pure evil ambitions of conquest.
  • Appreciates the contrast between Vegeta's efforts to train Trunks into becoming stronger and Bulma's doting over him to make sure he's okay, seeing the fact that they actually care about their son, and is grateful that they somehow managed to raise such a kind and dutiful young man. In turn, they both like that she's given the young master responsibility so that he doesn't get lazy and is able to continue tapping into his full potential, both as a warrior and otherwise.
  • In her own words, she is attracted to wild, tough, and handsome older men that are also open-minded. This explains her attraction to certain bad boy anti-heroes and wild cards such as Goku's father Bardock.
  • Her desire for friendship, which had partially led her to manipulate Trunks into her employ, now also attracts the attention of Teddie and Greed. She's cool with Teddie, but annoyed by Greed despite his also fitting her criteria for attractive men because she offered to give his bar some of her home-cooked meals, but he taste-tested it himself and told her it sucked. Speaking of which…
  • The Supreme Kai of Time is a dangerous cook. As in, her cooking is literally poisonously bad, but she thinks it's awesome. It has crippled Goku's fighting ability, triggered Beerus' destructive rage, given Pluto a bad case of indigestion for about ten days, and Trunks won't even talk about how badly a taste of her cooking affected him. However, almost no one has the guts to tell her to her face how atrocious she really is. When Greed did so without hesitation, she angrily summoned her Time Judgment cloud to shoot at him for close to four hours, during which he had to keep the Ultimate Shield over his head the entire time.
  • Made friends with Karen Minazuki after being introduced to each other by Setsuna. Karen, whose resolved to help lonely rich deities make friends, was soon able to tell that under her cheery demeanor Chronoa gets pretty sad when Trunks isn't around and has resolved to hang out with her whenever possible.
  • The idea that only certain people deserve to live or everyone has to be a certain way reminds her too much of Zamasu, hence why she has no patience for Red Skull and YHVH. The Vex is even worse in this regard, as they feel that they and they alone deserve to live and they wish to corrupt space and time to take over reality itself. Also hates Lucifer due to manipulating and corrupting a fellow time-based deity for his own twisted goals.
  • Goetia is particularly disturbing to her, as his corrupting demonic god nature and his plans to destroy and reshape everything seems too much like those of her former friend turned Arch-Enemy, Demon God Demigra. She even wonders if he may have secretly corrupted Demigra into becoming such a horrible villain in the first place.
  • The original heroic Time Lord, The Doctor, occasionally pops by to give her team a hand with certain threats; particularly if Trunks and Dialga's full attention is already being demanded by a separate issue OR they're being overwhelmed by the threat in question. Lord English is very frequently the opportunist in the former scenario and his mastery of manipulating stable time loops to destroy worlds is so deadly she's trying to find a way to seal that monster in the Crack of Time. Though she knows he's destined to fall into the dustbin of history, she's still not taking any chances with how much damage he'll do on the way there. Thankfully, he and Zamasu both hate each other as much as they hate everyone else, so they WON'T be teaming up.
  • Is a bit mixed regarding Hibiki Kuze. He and his friends have constantly rewound time, which she doesn't particularly like, but only to alter history in which their world's humanity would go extinct thanks to the Administrators. He's kinda similar to Trunks, except fairly more extreme, definitely more smug, and disconcertingly cool with both Lucifer and YHVH.
  • Following the events of two wars they had with the Time Breakers in which Bardock inadvertently helped out with their mission both times, she's decided to take him on as a Herald. Knowing that he's still a Blood Knight above all else, she also needed the help of a High Priest who could travel back and undo any damage he might cause, so she then whisked a certain agent scientist in a time suit out of a Temporal Paradox. Not too long afterward, Bardock ascended to the Pantheon proper. Whis and Beerus find this arrangement amusing.
  • Shortly after that Chronoa was made a part of Chronormu's petition to move out of her subhouse, along with Trunks and Pluto, into a primary position in the House of Time and Space as the Pantheonic Time Police. She was honored that Chromie had considered her this highly and glad to be able to further cement her alliance with Pluto.
  • Chronoa has revealed a more powerful form in which she ages herself to physical adulthood… and manifests the same halo as Merged Zamasu. The rest of the pantheon isn't sure what to think about this.

    Homura Akemi 
Homura Akemi, Goddess of Retroactive Preparation (Homerun, Homu, Homuhomu, Homurika, Homulily, The Nutcracker Queen, Devil Homura, Homucifer, True Assassin, False Archer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/homura_magical_girl.png
Click here to see her normal attire 
Homura (Eyeglass Ver.) 
Homulilly (Second Form) 
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."

  • Opposes: Destiny
  • Due to his time travel, Kang has one of the most confusing histories of any member of the pantheon. As such, he is officially banned from entering any of the four Grand Alliances, for fear he will have being in more than one, using his past self for a future victory.
  • Kang claims to have entered the pantheon from the Bad Future to end all bad futures. A place where the pantheon and subsequent multiverses are in a state of utter chaos due to constant in-fighting, allowing The Anti-Monitor and Nekron to easily wipe most of the people there out. As such, he is trying to conquer the pantheon to stop this. Most don't buy this, especially Iron Lad, who claims he comes from "a peaceful, utopian future." Kang has tried to stop this by saying "do you honestly believe the pantheon can be peaceful and utopian by its own." A number of gods conceded to this.
  • Most gods who like a sensible timestream have it out for Kang. Doctor Emmet Brown especially, who's hatred of paradoxes has motivated him to try and erase Kang to stop him from wrecking the timeline further. Faction Paradox, however, is cool with this and is trying to make his timeline even more confusing. There are rumors Grandfather Paradox gave him time travel in the first place to warp the time stream.
  • Kang has a lot of contempt for Dark Danny. Not only does he seem him as a monster, but he dislikes how Dan treated his past self. Iron Lad is no fan of Kang, but Kang is at least nice about trying to make him... well him.
  • Hates the presence of Destiny in the Pantheon, and for that matter any deity that represents destiny. He does not want to ever become "that doddering old fool Immortus", and all his iterations agreed with him in that sentiment. It is unclear if this includes Immortus, who may actually be in league with Destiny.
  • The recent events of the Incursions have forced Kang and his future self to work together, in order to prevent the end of the multiverse as we know it. They've worked to try and keep Captain America out of the picture, so that he won't stop what's needed to prevent the Incursions. He/they failed, and are making it up by fighting against the likes of Nekron and the GUAD.
  • Have a rivalry with the Dalek Time Controller due to his villainous manipulations of the timeline.
  • It turns out that one of his various incarnations had more influence the people realized as he had complete control of one timeline as "He Who Remains".
  • One of the few beings that Apocalypse flat out despises. While Apocalypse may have always been destined as a villain Rama-Tut made him far worse then he ever would have been otherwise.
  • Immortus tries his best to correct various time shenanigans of his other incarnaions and does his best to help those that have been dealing with their time realted issues to avoid paradoxes even if they don't trust him.
  • His youngest incarnation tried his best to not be like him but unfortunately became Kid Immortus and turned to villainy.
  • As He Who Remains he's amused by the deities who think they can fight fate. He has seen their transcripts. Everything they have done, everything they will do. It won't save them from what's coming. Yet he does love to see them try.
  • He finds that he is a Necessary Evil to keep time flowing correctly and is one of the few deitites that would employ the Dahaka to help him with his work.
  • His amusement stops with Homura wondering why she ever thought she was able to get away from fate and that she chose the life she had when it's just a few pages in her transcript. That her attempts at protecting Madoka for what she thinks is the greator good is nothing compared to what he had to sacrfice and she needs to let it go. When confronted on this he lost his happy demanor and yelled out,
    Grow up! Grow up, Homura! Destroyer! Hypocrite! We're all villains here.
  • Seems unafraid on the prospect of death. For as long as Nathaniel Richards is curious about the past and how to change it there will always been infinite versions of him in time and space. He likens it to a form of Reincarnation.
    See you soon
  • Once set himself up in the house of commerce as Mr. Gryphon and started a tech based business to rival Stark Industries called Qeng Industries. It didn't take too long for the good members of the house to take notice of his true identity but less moral members are still willing to buy from him. There he was able to develop an Artificial Intelligence / Recording known as Miss Minutes for all his incarnations to use.
  • Immortus praises Master Xehanort for finally seeing beyond his dark machinations and letting go. Time will tell if this change sticks but Immortus is one of the few to support Xehanort in his changed viewpoint.
  • Mr. Gryphon is banned from the house of Machinery and Technology after learning that he once was able to use his knowledge to take over Vision.
  • Kid Immortus is saddened and envious of Sougo as he was able to change his dark future for the better. Something he himself has tried to do so many times but constantly fails at.
  • While she does appreciate the occasional help from Immortus. The Doctor can't stand He Who Remains, at first she didn't know why but after learning of his actions she realized that he reminds her of when she thought of herself as a "Time Lord Victorious" several incarnations ago. Manipulating time for whatever they want deluding themselves into thinking it's for the greater good. This has damaged their alliance somewhat much to Immortus' displeasure.
  • All of his variants respect Doctor Doom greatly. It was due to his technology that Nathaniel was able to travel back in time in the first place. It's also due to the fact that Doom maybe an ancestor of his. Which means he takes great pains to help Victor stay in one piece when they work together. Won't stop him for betraying him if it suits Kang's plans.
  • He Who Remains' greatest weapon when he feels he needs to defend himself when all else fails is Alioth, a gigantic cloud of smoke with a head shaped like an animal skull, that scours through the Void and devours matter and energy, dissolving them into nothingness. A creature that He Who Remains keeps to himself and refuses to share it with his other incarnations.
  • He Who Remains gleefully entered an alliance with The Lord as he firmly agrees with him that the evil and power-hungry nature of all living things can't be helped, and wants to force a single narrative upon all of existence to prevent them from making any choices. He believes that without either of them "Everything burns".
  • Despite what many may think it did not start with Rick Sanchez, Xehanort, Reed or Doom but Kang who first made an alliance with various versions of himself know as the Kang Collective.
    • This allowed him to get an alliance with an alternate of Reed who took the moniker as the Maker when it turned out that the Ultimate version of Kang was Sue Storm who put the Maker on the path to villainy.
    • Another part of the Collective amused Kang as it turns out there is a fusion of him and Kamala Khan know as Kamala Kang. She is an accidently force of destruction that is useful for Kang's plans but it is one of the few of him that he doesn't hate. Kamala Khan does not share the sentiment.
  • Under the title of Scarlet Centurion he was able to force the Avengers to fight earlier versions of each other. With the help of Funny Valentine he is trying to find a way to recreate those events under the Pantheon. Though this time without dealing with people powered by Friendship.
  • Under the alias of Victor Timely, Kang had set up another scheme to take over the world in its distant past after one too many defeats by the Avengers and the Fantastic Four. He traveled to the time of King Arthur taking over Camelot and defeating not only defeated Merlin but the Knights of the Round as well. It took help from the Fantastic Four to free Merlin and stop Kang's short reign. It earned the ire of Arthur who vowed to make sure it would never happen again.
    • Unknown to them all Kang had also made some investments so that a business would be set that would become significant to Kang's plans know as Timely Industries.
  • Set his seat in the Pantheon in the kingdom he conquered called Chronopolis. An area that has parts and places from various timelines located in Limbo. The Pantheon Defense has kept a close eye on it since landmarks and dominions of the Pantheon have shown up inside it.
    • Unknown to most Kang has kept various trophies in his personal vault including some from the treasury.
  • He Who Remains likes to work with Kronika as he knows how difficult it is to try and create the perfect timeline. He can help show her how. After all he did it.
  • Constantly at odds with Abra Kadabra. While both went back to the past for similar reasons. Abra is more of a chaotic showman while Kang is more an structured conqueror.
  • As the Scarlet Centurion he is very useful in fighting against Superman and his expies as he has been one of the few villains to take on the Squadron Supreme and live to become one of their most dangerous enemies..
You may hate the dictator, but something... far worse is gonna fill that void if you dispose of him. I've lived a million lifetimes. I've gone through every scenario. This is the only way.

    Randall Ross 
Randall Ross, God of Time Portals (Mr. Ross, Lord Ross)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_ross.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, the rest of the House of School, Yog-Sothoth (Aforgomon)
  • 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.
  • 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?

    Chronormu 
Chronormu, Goddess of Casual Time Travel (Chromie, Keeper of Time)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chromietcg.jpg

  • Intermediate Goddess (Greater Goddess in her Dragon form)
  • Symbol: A Sandclock
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, but she comes of as Neutral Good most of the time
  • Portfolio: Being in charge of keeping the Timelines in check, Taking the form of a Gnome while being a bronze dragon and kicking ass while at it, Gender-Blender Name, Meeting lots of people while time travelling, Odango Hair, Time Master, Sand-based magic
  • Domains: Time, Gnomes, Dragons, Time Preservation, Magic

  • Conflicting Opinion: Homura Akemi
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The Dahaka, Brightwing
  • Chronormu, better known as Chromie, is a bronze dragon tasked with keeping the timelines in check. To do this, she normally travels in time almost every day and she basically does that so often that she got used to it.
    • The reason as to why she arrived to the Pantheon was because she was searching for her boss, Nozdormu, who got lost one day (which ended in him getting ascended). Chromie was glad that Nozdormu was safe and was ready to return to her duties, but her boss convinced her to stay in the Pantheon. She was offered a spot in the House of Time and Space (which wound up more specifically in its Time Manipulation subhouse) to keep an eye on the numerous deities there given that Nozdormu was located in another house.
    Chromie: Time and Space? Oh it's all the same to me.
  • Many don't really know that she is actually a dragon in disguise, to the point that no even Ornstein knows about it. Chromie explains that she is really comfortable with her gnome form:
    Chromie: When you spend most of your existence as a colossal scaly dragon, sometimes it's nice to be small and cute, you know.
  • Her job consists of overseeing the different timelines and check that they flow correctly. That's why she has to constantly deal with various deities who want to change it for their own selfish reasons. So far, she has put down a list of most of the deities that she will have to deal with at some point.
  • The Pantheon really intrigues Chromie on how it's supposed to work. She is banging her head in trying to understand it better but she tends to forget what Uther told her when she ascended.
    Chromie: This Pantheon is so peculiar. Characters who are alive but should be dead, others from strange alternate timelines. You know, when I discover who's tampered with the timestream, they're gonna be sorry!
  • She quickly befriended Rika Furude after hearing of her ordeal, which she really feels sorry for. Chromie is glad that she isn't the only one that expresses concern for Nozdormu and she sometimes secretly aids Rika in trying to convince him to change some of his ways.
    • Although Rika has a feeling of uncertainty with Chromie, given that she sounds really similar to Miyo Takano.
    • She also promised Rika that she will personally take care of Bernkastel. Her constant manipulation of the timestreams is one thing the dragon won't tolerate.
  • Being constantly traveling through time, Chromie feels that she already knows everyone in the Pantheon. She is worried that people might want to berate her for underpaying some adventurers and probably not remembering that.
    • People tend to believe that she is a little spaced out. This is because she is usually overseeing all the timelines and that makes her space out sometimes.
  • She is really good friends with Tracer, and she offered the former Overwatch agent her aid while they are in the Nexus.
    Chromie: Oh, I've seen this before! You're Unstuck in Time! I can fix that, you know.
  • She is also reluctant around Brightwing, as the Faerie Dragon tried to eat her more than once, even if they're in the same team whenever they're in the Nexus.
    Chromie: Hi, Brightwing! You do remember that I'm not food, right?
  • She really doesn't like how the Dahaka approaches those who defy their destiny but because of the orders of her boss, she usually has to work with him. That doesn't mean she has to get along with him.
  • No, even though she is named Chronormu, she is not a male dragon. Get your Bronze dragon facts straight!
  • Gets along with the God of Gnomes David. The latter thinks that she is an actual Gnome and often invites her to hang out with Gnome Chompski. She usually accepts because David is such a Nice Guy to her. (Although she heard rumors that he actually slaps people's shit when pissed off, so she is careful around him.)
  • She befriended the young Nanako Dojima, particularly because the little girl sounds a lot like her. She tries to be like a Cool Big Sis to her but Nanako can hardly take her seriously, because they are both about the same size. (She hasn't seen Chromie's dragon form.)
  • Chromie's magic is mostly made of sand, and it's very powerful to boot. This in turn made her befriend Gaara and Crixalis, who are also known to control sand as well.
  • She was the first of her Dragonflight lucky enough to enter the Nexus, even before Nozdormu himself. She is really glad that she gets to have some time off her duties, since she hardly can take a break.
  • She once stumbled upon a timeline where she became the queen of the Fel Drakes. How did this happened is beyond her.
  • Since the Pantheon has entrusted her to oversee the timestream of the Pantheon, she decided to form a group that would help her control the timelines. Trunks volunteered himself to give her a hand. Over time he formed a partnership with the legendary Temporal Pokémon Dialga, brought in his Time Patrol boss, the Supreme Kai of Time, and helped Sailor Pluto reestablish her temple with more importance than before, along with several associates in other houses willing to back them up. Realizing that she finally had her team, Chromie successfully petitioned to move herself, Trunks, Chronoa, and Pluto out of their subhouses into the primary section of the House of Time and Space, officially making them the Pantheonic Time Police.

  • 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.

  • In the mid-2010s, a deadly airborne virus is spread around, killing 7 billion people and dismantling society into their most primal instincts and feelings for survival. The survivors of the plague were immune to the virus and decided to spend their lives building up their own communities and fighting one another for survival. One of those survivors, Dr. Katarina Jones was working on Project Splinter, an idea that she was helming with her husband before the plague, the end result being a time machine. In 2043, he recruited a pair of scavengers and defectors of West VII; James Cole and Jose Ramse into her ranks of keeping their base fortified. James volunteered to be taken back into the past via 2013 and 2015 to make contact with Dr. Cassandra Railly, who specifically mentioned Cole in an audio log before her death in 2017. The mission's primary objective was to kill Leland Goines, the CEO of the Markridge Group, which specializes in biomedical engineering and potentially could have been the source. Cole was able to kill him but soon realized that a bigger party was in play, The Army of the 12 Monkeys, led by two people known only as The Pallid Man and The Striking Woman, who themselves were responsible for spreading the virus.
    • Cole and Cassandra eventually agreed to work together in stopping the 12 Monkeys by whatever means necessary, with Cole himself hopping through different time zones in different parts of the past and to his present, where tensions would rise between him and Ramse, attacks coming from West VII leader Deacon and developing an odd partnership with Leland's daughter, Jennifer, who later turned out to be a Primary; beings who have a special connection with "Time", able to see them and help it think. Eventually, with the involvement of a gang of mysterious beings known as The Daughters, led by an older Jennifer and Ramse defecting from Project Splinter to join the 12 Monkeys in an attempt to save his son Sam, Cassie is bought to 2043 where she begins training to become a fighter, establishing a good partnership with Deacon and allowing him and West VII to begin working with Project Splinter, alongside Ramse returning to Cole after the former saves the latter from dying from a gunshot inflicted by Cassie. Along the way, they discover the 12 Monkey's true goals; to "paradox" certain figures in the past, which involves killing them via stabbing them with a knife made from their breast bone in the hopes that they can create a time paradox powerful enough to destroy time itself. Allying with West VII and the Daughters, where Jones's daughter, Hannah was revealed to have survived, and Jennifer herself managed to make it to 2043, Project Splinter discovered the existence of Titan, an unknown city and the base of operations for the 12 Monkeys. An attempt to storm it and find it's leader, The Witness, failed as it was revealed too late that the city itself was a time machine. As Cole and Cassie consummated their relationship earlier before the latter was stranded with them upon taking off to another period of time, Cassie became pregnant and was forced to see her son, Athan, be taken away from him to be raised as The Witness.
    • The battle between Project Splinter and the 12 Monkeys became ever more personal as Cole was forced to kill Ramse after he lost any motivation to carry on after killing his own son in the future after seeing him injured during a fight against the 12 Monkeys and was to die anyway from critical injures. Travelling through time, they were able to track down an adult Athan, who battled against his parents and was revealed that he was not The Witness. The Witness turned out to be The Striking Woman, Olivia Kirschner, who proceeded to kill Athan after he saved his parents and their allies from the 12 Monkeys. Project Splinter then dedicated themselves to using whatever resources necessary to track down and stop the 12 Monkeys, whereupon they lost more allies, Deacon included, and discovered two revelations, that Hannah was Cole's mother, effectively making his entire existence a Stable Time Loop and that Cole and Cassie were forced to spread the virus themselves at the JFK Airport to ensure their own existence. Eventually discovering a plan to take down the 12 Monkeys once and for all, Cole and his team managed to assault Titan, with the help of former comrades collected from the past. They defeated Olivia and managed to prevent a global Time Crash from happening. However, due to being a paradoxical person himself Cole opted to be erased from existence after seeing his friends depart to their proper time year, though Dr. Jones, in her final moments before dying, managed to program the time machine in a specific fashion to take Cole to an alternate timeline where neither the 12 Monkeys nor the time machine ever existed. After years of fighting for a normal and prosperous world and the many sacrifices they made, the members of Project Splinter and their friends and allies finally got the ending and life they wanted.
  • In one possible scenario, while Cole did make it to an idealised world where he could live happily ever after, one version of him ended up in a strange new world. Travelling for a few hours, Cole discovered a "Pantheon" of sorts, whereupon he approached a citizen about his situation. This led him to the Pantheonic Time Police who gave him a good briefing about the Pantheon, in addition to learning about Cole's story and how he came into the Pantheon. He then became sure that Cassie, Jones and the other members of Project Splinter may be around, though, to his extreme discomfort, he would also learn that the 12 Monkeys themselves were also in the Pantheon. In a short while, Cole was able to find his close associates, friends and family, whereupon the Time Police were open in having them ascended as a means for them to combat the 12 Monkeys once again, albeit this time, with more support and aid, thanks to the fantastical nature of the Pantheon.
  • Despite the resurfacing of the 12 Monkeys, the efforts of the Pantheonic Time Police and several other forces of good have actually played a hand in making Project Splinter's time in the Pantheon more comfortable, despite the initial fear that they're at it again. On more positive notes, all of the members get to have a perfectly normal occupation that they earned for their hard work; Deacon has his own bar and has a business domain in the House of Food because of this, Cassie is a virologist and will take working hours in the House of Health and Diseases to treat sickly patients, usually, those affected by viruses, Jennifer is the proud CEO of Markridge Groups, being able to genetically create a Unicorn, Jones lives a normal civilian life with her husband, Elliot, and her daughter, Hannah, Ramse is raising his son, Sam with help from the House of Family and Cole chose to spend his time with Cassie, though he made a point to visit his friends and allies as much as he can, which soon expanded to exploring the Pantheon.
  • The circumstances of the Kalavirus were eerily similar to the ALZ-112 Virus in another world where Apes ruled. Essentially, a drug was created as a means to cure Alzheimer's Disease and worked well on primates, who developed high levels of intelligence comparable to that of humans, but was fatal to humans themselves and later, mutated into causing muteness and deteriorating a human's intelligence in case they survived. As a result, Caesar was sympathetic to Project Splinter and understood why they would have wanted to change the way things are, given that he was raised by humans himself. The Project's members were initially skeptical of Caesar due to his territorial nature but understood that he was good-hearted and just wanted to keep his group safe. The same, however, cannot be said for Koba, who was raised in an isolated and abusive environment which, over time, morphed into misanthropy and bloodlust towards anyone human, with his excuse no longer being a justification. If anything, Koba is glad the Kalavirus killed 7 billion people and would gladly do the deed of spreading it himself, which only demonstrated just how bloodthirsty and depraved he had become over time. As a result, battles between Koba and Project Splinter tend to happen sometimes.
  • Future Trunks sees the group in good regard, though he does raise awareness in just how willing they are to ensure a good world. All of the members, save for Cassie were hardened people in some way or another (and even then, Cassie would toughen up in a year-long time gap) and felt that killing one another was the best they could have done to ensure their own survival, especially Deacon who used to uphold this notion and preach it towards the West VII organization. As this no longer applies, Future Trunks can see how they became what they did, considering he himself grew up in a dystopian future and had to see what should have been loved ones get senselessly killed.
    • Dr. Jones was the one member with the biggest camaraderie to Future Trunks, mainly because she reminds him of his mother, Bulma, who, like Jones, worked tirelessly to create a time machine in the hopes of using it to prevent the Bad Future from happening and would do whatever it takes to make it happen. Unlike Future Bulma, however, Jones was willing to steal and kill, though she does admit that she wouldn't have turned out like this if fate had simply given her a more positive timeline to live in. That, and the fact that she was motivated by the loss of her husband and daughter (who turned out to have survived and be inducted into Future Jennifer's organization, The Daughters), much like how Future Bulma was motivated by the deaths of Goku via a heart disease and the Z-Fighters at the hands of Androids 17 and 18 makes it hard to ignore the many similarities the two scientists have.
  • Despite Cole's existence being dependent on the fact that he is a Stable Time Loop due to being the son of a time-traveller who conceived him in the past, he doesn't really mind it all that much, especially given that he was ready to give his life to save the world and now, he may as well use the new life he has to experience a whole new wonder in the Pantheon. That said, he has learned a lot via time travelling, so his ways of trying to integrate into society don't bother him all too much. He's found fellow camaraderie with apocalypse survivors like Yuuri, Chito, Rick Grimes, The Courier and the Sole Survivor, all of whom have shared their experiences of how they dealt with surviving in a harsh world with little-to-no aid. Cole finds the philosophical talks of Yuuri and Chito to be pretty endearing, admires Rick for his leadership in fighting for a society in a zombie-infested world and is willing to fight with The Messenger and the Sole Survivor against mutual threats, though the two of them think Cole deserves a time of peace at the moment.
  • Dr. Jones's time machine was hard and risky to use as incorrectly handling it led to the deaths of a few other potential travellers before Cole arrived. As a result, she created a serum that enhanced the injected's physique and exponentially slowed down ageing. This was a key reason how Ramse looked the same after being stuck for 30 years and, of course, why Cole and Cassie don't seem to have looked like they were ageing. That said, the serum does have it's drawbacks, in that it doesn't prevent potential osteoporosis from happening and repeated uses of time travel in a short time-span would kill a traveller. Because of this, the members of Project Splinter are more able-bodied and physically capable than regular human beings, though are still susceptible of getting killed in any mundane fashion possible.
    • That said, a traveller cannot physically interact with their past self in any way as doing so would result in an explosive paradox that would kill both versions of the traveller. This is one of the reasons why Project Splinter stays as far away as possible from Funny Valentine, a stand user with the power to weaponize this sort of phenomena. Interestingly, Valentine himself seems complimentary of Project Splinter's efforts to save the world and supports their goals and their hard-earned victory, but his extreme actions of wanting to preserve his country and his ruthlessness deter any chances of mutual respect.
  • Their story and experience led to the six of them being seen with a lot of respect by Wes Collins. He personally gets to relate with Cassie the most, being that both of them led ordinary lives until a being from the future warned them of an impeding doom and that both had to deal with a genetically altered being. Though the difference was that while Ransik and Olivia had tragic upbringings, the former was able to let go of his hatred towards humanity and be humbled whereas the latter became too obsessed with destroying time that redemption never became an option for her. Wes pities Olivia, though solemnly wonders if she would have ended up becoming a better person if she wasn't raised to be a maniacal destroyer and was raised with neglect and a lack of care.
  • Sougo Tokiwa was an odd case. Unlike Project Splinter who did their hardest to avert fate with wholly different results, Sougo was content in letting fate run its course and going along with being Kamen Rider Zi-O because of it. That said, Sougo does hold a measure of respect for Project Splinter for their efforts whereas the team did worry about him becoming the future Demon King of Time, though Sougo decided that the lives of his friends were ultimately more important and used his powers to fix the timelines that he altered at the cost of losing his powers. This allowed Sougo and Project Splinter to be on good terms with one another as both realized that their friends and family were what mattered most at the end of the day.
  • Zamasu thinks Project Splinter and the 12 Monkeys are a prime example of humanity's "sinfulness" and personally makes it a goal to teach them a lesson (as in punishing them of death out of petty misanthropy and inability to comprehend their actions). The members of Project Splinter see the Fallen Kai as a deranged madman who fails to see just how much he does what he iterates and is just as bad as the "mortals" he despises, perhaps more so. The fact that Cole and Jones remind Zamasu of Future Trunks and Future Bulma respectively isn't helping matters for him either, and he thinks that the Kalavirus should have killed all of humanity rather than 98% of it.
    • Interestingly, Zamasu, via using the Time Ring in his Goku Black form, is a result of a Stable Time Loop, just like Cole and the 12 Monkeys. Despite the similarity, he refuses to be compared to them in any shape or manner, let alone a shared quirk. The fact that Cole pointed this out nonchalantly mas made Zamasu lose his temper on a few occasions and plans to retrieve the Kalavirus someday to complete where the 12 Monkeys had left off (even though the Kalavirus itself was a stepping point). At least Zamasu is adamant about the fact that the virus can potentially mutate to the point where even the immune wouldn't be safe from it.
  • The story of Project Splinter and the 12 Monkeys attracted the attention of Barry Allen, The Flash, who was well known for his experiences with time travel, particularly when he did that to save his mother, Nora, only to end up simultaneously creating a dystopian timeline. While Project Splinter's attempts to save the world were not exactly rooted in rules, Barry paid his regards to them, especially after seeing how they were able to succeed in their goals and lead a happy life, something which he sadly wasn't able to get in his time travelling experience. To repay the favour, Project Splinter are eager to accept Barry as a good friend and ally as his sense of justice and awareness of the timeline was stout and noble enough. That said, both Project Splinter and Barry refrain from time travelling due to its potential dangers, not to mention how the Splinter Machine isn't exactly as impressive as a few other time machines in the Pantheon.
    • Although Eobard Thawne doesn't exactly wish for all of time to collapse and be destroyed, he does take delight in making others suffer and felt that the Kalavirus did more than enough. Given that he became the leader of a dystopian society in a possible future, he muses that it would mean less resistance more enforcement on his part. Unsurprisingly, Project Splinter came to hate Thawne for his abusive and sadistic nature and using his powers of travelling through time just to torment Barry and his loved ones. Thawne himself spites Project Splinter for being friends with Barry and mocks Dr. Jones for developing what he thinks is a "pathetic device" just because "she missed her girl so much".
  • Despite her insane nature and her unpredictability, Jennifer isn't as bad as her demeanour makes her out to be. Rather, if given a push, she can be incredibly encouraging and helpful to those she would like to help. In part of being a Primary, this was how Jennifer was able to prove herself a worthwhile ally and asset to Project Splinter and be an effective leader for The Daughters after her future self was accidentally shot and killed by Deacon. She sees a lot more in the House of Time and Space than most deities could, though she instead prefers to try being a normal person after the burden of being a Primary cost too much, from an abusive upbringing via her mother to seeing an old organization of hers be killed in an explosion and enduring an apocalyptic future.
    • Once she finally found peace and comfort after defeating the 12 Monkeys, Jennifer went on to become the CEO of Markridge Groups. One of her first actions was to genetically create a unicorn, which she succeeded in, to much applause. Provided with this, she wound up becoming friends with the Mane Six, with Jennifer finding their loyalty and dedication to one another pretty endearing. Her own behaviour makes the Alicorns wary, but given how she took it upon herself to stick up for her allies, she earns their respect. Predictably, Jennifer gets along most with Pinkie Pie, given that both are zany and crazy and tend to be the most extroverted in their groups. Jennifer is open to vising one of Pinkie Pie's parties at any time.
    • On an unrelated topic, she killed Adolf Hitler during a mission to retrieve an ancient artifact in France, 1940 before the 12 Monkeys could, with the Nazi Regime just so happening to attend a conference. While his death didn't really change the timeline, with Heinrich Himmler simply taking over as Fuhrer until 1945, Nazi deities are not pleased with these sort of events and have it out on Jennifer. Her response is a loud and boisterous Bring It.
  • Deacon's tenure as a bartender in the House of Food has garnered the attention of fellow workers, namely Shizuo Heiwajima, Jill Stingray, Bartender Bob and The Tapper. While he may not be the most impressive in a fantastical sense, they did feel rather unnerved by what Deacon went through in his life, in addition to being a savage scavenger for a raiding organization. That said, he admitted that hosting a bar was a dream of his and that's what matters at the end of the day. Amusingly, Jill and Deacon have one thing in common; not liking their first names, and because of that, Deacon is straight to just calling her "Jill". Despite his vicious nature at first, Bob and Tapper are welcoming enough to hang out with him. Deacon, Jill, Bob and Tapper will often play a game of sliding their cups for fun, followed by the occasional drink.
  • Even before the apocalypse, Deacon didn't really have it great. Case in point, he had to deal with an abusive alcoholic father who always beat him and saw him as a disappointment. This was a primary stem for why Deacon ended up becoming a dangerous and territorial man during the aftermath of the Kalavirus outbreak, though despite having hardened him into a brutal killing machine, a decent man and personality still persisted within him. He developed a good relationship with Cassie after the latter found out that he was Secretly Dying of Wilson's Disease, which he never knew he had. With Cassie's influence Deacon would eventually start to work together with Cole and Ramse, even if the two were former members of West VII.
    • Taking this into consideration, Deacon hates the Child Abuse Supporters and is not hesitant about killing them off. Although, despite being an Alcoholic Parent himself, Deacon is fine with tolerating Kogoro Mouri as he's a good-hearted man doing his best as a police officer. To his surprise, Deacon found himself getting along with a lot of deities who had to deal with abusive parents, some of whom wound up doing worse things than Deacon's father ever did. He found common ground with Satsuki Kiryuin for being a fierce leader and Carl Clover for having to deal with the neglect and torment from Rellius Clover, who was responsible for turning his daughter and Carl's sister, Ava into an automaton for the boy to fix and while Carl is no longer the good boy he used to be, Deacon still offers condolences. Maisie Farange was an oddball, if mainly because the abuse she dealt with was indirect and more emotional-stemmed, though Deacon was content with knowing that Margo and Lincoln have done a good job to keep Maisie happy and content, though he thinks Susanna and Beale are idiotic, even if they loved Maisie. He outright praises Zuko for standing up to Ozai, which Deacon admittedly called "a stuck-up piece of shit" and can relate to him in the sense that both were villainous forces that eventually ended up becoming good and had tragic pasts.
  • Cassie's occupation as a virologist has her be sought out by Dr. Gregory House. He was able to figure that Cassie was a good doctor, though he admitted that Cassie being an attractive woman is something that can be used to attract hospital patients. Cassie was... miffed, but she recognized how talented and analytical House is as a medical doctor himself, so the two do have a measure of respect, even if House can be... caustic and mean. On the other hand, Maki Nishikino of μ's was openly enthusiastic about Cassie's occupation, despite her usual demeanour. While she decided to choose to be a school idol singer over a doctor as her parents wanted, Cassie was supportive of Maki's choice as she's finding another way to inspire people, like how a lot of others, Maki included, state that Cassie did the same by treating people's viruses and saving the world for one.
  • One of the most unexpected admirers for the group, but especially towards Dr. Jones was Nox. In spite of him being aggressively committed to his goals, he was genuinely praiseworthy of Good Parents and those who would do anything for them, as Jones demonstrated. This sort of feeling also extended towards Cassie who wanted to save her son, Athan and raise him properly with Cole by her side. While sympathetic, Jones and the rest of Project Splinter are not in line with what Nox wants to accomplish as he's risking the timeline to save his family. Although one-sided, Nox still chooses to see Jones and Cassie in a respectable light, even if they disagree with him.
  • Yes, all six of them are aware of the original version of their story where the virus was instead spread in 1996 and nobody got the payoff they wanted. Cole expressed his sympathies to his other self whereas Cassie was surprised to see that Kathryn (whom she was based on) was also the name of her mother. Jennifer, however, is not pleased to see how Jeffrey Goines turned out. Crazy, just like her, but that's about it, though his goal of wanting to release zoo animals was zany and fun. And at least the Leland Goines of that version wasn't as bad as the one who was Jennifer's father.

  • Kyle Reese always loved Sarah Connor - the problem is, she lived decades before him. He received her picture from his commanding officer in the Robot War and her son, John Connor, and memorized every line, every curve of the snapshot. Once the resistance assaulted the SkyNet lab complex and discovered a Terminator had been sent back in time to kill Sarah, Kyle jumped at the opportunity to follow him, and finally meet the object of his affection. The time-displaced Rescue Romance would not last long, as the Terminator would only go down at the cost of Kyle's life, but as Sarah put it, "The few hours we had together, we loved a lifetime's worth", with the most important part being the conception of John.
  • Part of the reason why it has been difficult to ascend the two is with their convoluted history. One timeline had the two as adults, while another timeline had a slightly younger Sarah. Tired of the ambiguous timelines, The Doctor sought to end it once and for all. In the end, he managed to fix the time continuum. Sarah and Kyle survived the initial encounter with the T-800 and entered the Pantheon shortly afterwards.
    • As such, they are forever thankful to the Doctor, and are always willing to go after those who like the T-800 went back in time to disrupt history, such as Boris the Animal. In the meantime, they have become closer with good time travellers. While Marty McFly and Bill & Ted were all from lighter fare, they actually welcomed people with more positive outviews (plus, the San Dimas duo also has experiences with evil robots), and Marty is pushing them to learn bass and drums so all five can form a band. From Japan came one time-shifted romance as complex as theirs in Taki Tachibana and Mitsuha Miyamizu, and one possible ally in Rintarou Okabe, who becomes a rebel leader in a future world line. And Lucina earns much sympathy for being in a situation that was the reverse of what led to Kyle's travels, a fighter who goes back in time to save her parents and defeat evil before it appears.
  • As soon as they ascended, they were received by an adult John, happy that his parents could be by his side, and the reprogrammed T-800. Kyle reacted to the Terminator as badly as Sarah did when she first met him, but was easy to convince that the cyborg was now on their side. The former Terminator may not show it in its mechanical mouth, but many theorize it is most pleased with the couple's ascension.
    • By contrast, Skynet was soon ready to set up their targets on two of its fiercest enemies. The original T-800 and the T-1000, both of whom have personal histories with the couple, are alread, and while the T-X only targeted John, she's on standby, specially because she can disguise as either of them for a deceptive attack.
  • Tend to distrust all forms of machinery in order to prevent Skynet from happening in the Pantheon. (doesn't help Skynet has a lot of allies in the GUAM who are out to get the couple, such as the Venjix Virus, Ares and Justin Pin, and Metallo) The two have been subsequently banned from the House of Technology after it was ransacked.
    • The two have their eyes set on Eggman, as they see him as the one most likely to set off an event similar to Skynet.
    • Robocop has been assigned to guard the House of Technology from further meddling. The two are are not sure what to think of this super cop. There is the chance that the Machines can corrupt his systems, but there is definitely some for of humanity left in him. They're sure to keep an eye on him for now.
  • Neither expected to have a temple in the House of Love of all places. Still, the House appreciates the additional firepower the couple possesses. Kagome in particular became one of their closes allies in the House, talking with them about her relationship with Inuyasha.
  • Although wary of Optimus Prime, they agreed to focus their efforts on the Decepticons. Megatron has them on his sights as the first humans to crush once victorious.
  • Absolutely despise Barney Stinson, who has stated that while watching their movie, the death that made him cry was not Kyle, but the killer machine who "didn't get to kill those people".
  • Exclusive to Kyle:
    • Turns out he wasn't the only god sent from the future. He was visited by a purple haired Saiyan wielding a sword. The two sat down to chat on their adventures as well as the troubles of dealing with living in the past. With a smile on his face, Trunks paid a small tribute before leaving. Kyle simply grinned back, happy to find some companionship. He similarly gets along with Cable, who Kyle finds lucky to have been able to time travel while bringing his guns along, and Silver the Hedgehog, in spite of the weirdness that came from finding common ground with an anthropomorphic hedgehog.
    • Solid Snake made a surprising visit to the temple to talk to Kyle. Turns out he arrived to thank him for being the inspiration of his Metal Gear Solid NES cover. It wasn't long before the two realized just how many similarities the two shared.
    • Has been noted to look exactly like Corporal Dwayne Hicks. Being both rugged soldiers, they bonded easily, and once Skynet sent a Terminator after Hicks that was easily dispatched by Colonial Marines weaponry, Kyle is doing his best to get a Pulse Rifle like Hicks's. Hicks also brought along Vazquez, who is more than willing to blast Terminators away.
    • Admires John Nada, whose successful quest to take down a hidden alien society is something that the human resistance can aspire to copy.
  • Exclusive to Sarah:
    • Lucked out of the Action Mom title to Crimson Viper, ending up as the High Priestess. Her time there was rather strenuous, as Viper's reliance on technology to fight unnerved her.
    • Is best friends with Ellen Ripley, who ascended shortly after her. The two are seen as one of the most recognizable Action Girls in film.
    • Sonya Blade came to her after an encounter with a Terminator who mistook her for Sarah. It was easy for these tough as nails women to get along and join forces to fight Skynet.
    • Was sought out by Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott who were impressed with her evasion of the Terminators. Sarah offered her protection from the evil horror gods. She also found out much in common with their friend Tree Gelbman, who also grew to be a capable fighter after being stalked by a killer while facing time-related shenanigans.
    • Gained the approval of Belle when the princess thanked her for playing her in a little known TV series.
    • Once she learned of a timeline where John was killed before her eyes by a Terminator, she got really depressed and said that dying of cancer but certain that he'd live was preferrable. Still, Sarah has made 'For John' into a motto to prevent such tragedies.
    • There was yet another different timeline that depicted her and her mortal son preparing for Skynet. Although it was well-received by various gods, footage of these chronicles was cut shot. The Pantheon is searching for more footage of this timeline - a project that Cersei Lannister leads for unclear reasons.
