Pantheon / Torture & Mutilation

Go To

The House of Torture and Mutilation is considered one of, if not the most disturbing locations in the entire Trope Pantheon. One big Torture Cellar with poor lighting, only the bravest, determined or most deranged souls dare step into this house. Half the gods who want to visit it are the sickest SOBs there are, but there are some who merely wish to use the fear of the house to their advantage and a few who visit to prove their bravery or simply investigate.

To make it clear what kind of house this is, the entrance has severed and mutilated heads and appendages on pikes guarding it. As horrific as the house can be, studying the mutilations have helped with the surgical science of the pantheon. The Grand United Alliance of Good wants the house gone, but since Melkor uses it like a hotel this hasn't gone anywhere.

They have such sights to show you.

  • Enemies:
  • Fears: Cervantes de Leon, Kenshiro, Raoh

  • Morbidly Interested In: Cthulhu
  • Banned From: The House of Royalty, The House of Dragons, The House of Family, The House of Couples, The House of Treasures (including Maximum Security and The Armory), and The House of Romance, and from most of the good-aligned sorceresses
  • I don't mock the Drowned God - I am the Drowned God. From Oldtown to Qarth, when men see my sails, they pray.
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after laying waste to Daenerys Targaryen's fleet, much to the delight of Cersei Lannister and the anger of Daenerys Targaryen. He was originally slated to ascend following him becoming King of the Iron Isles, but that was delayed. Fortunately, Cersei used a portion of the stolen Tyrell gold to smooth things over, allowing Euron to ascend proper.
  • The younger brother of Balon Greyjoy, Balon is a talented sailor and commander. However, things went downhill for his family when Balon rebelled against the fledgling Baratheon regime. While he had declared for his brother and was the mastermind behind the attack which destroyed Tywin Lannister's fleet at Lannisport, the Greyjoy Rebellion would end in failure, driving Euron into exile.
    • Tywin Lannister had not forgotten that little detail, and vows that "Euron Greyjoy will pay his debts" to the Lannisters. He's also not too keen seeing Euron in cahoots with his murderous, kinslaying/queenslaying daughter.
  • His ship is The Silence, which he named following him ripping out the tongues of his crew. This came after he went batshit insane during a storm whilst sailing the Jade Sea and his crew had to tie him to the mast from throwing himself overboard. When asked why he did that, Euron casually replied, "I needed the silence."
  • Euron has a morbid fascination with the most infamous of Old Gods, Cthulhu. Maybe because it shares several similarities with the Drowned God, or maybe Euron can be in its presence without going even more insane (as it such a thing can be more possible).
  • Hears that there is a Pirate King in the Pantheon. Euron's curiosity is piqued when he discovers that the Pirate King is in fact one Elizabeth Swann Turner. "My kind of woman," Euron notes upon hearing of how she fought - and got married - during the Battle of Calypso's Maelstrom. First things first: kill her husband, then usurp the title of Pirate King from Elizabeth and make her his salt wife. "I pay the iron price," Euron said.
  • Turns out that Euron has a thing for powerful women. Sure he's betrothed to Cersei, but there are other deities who are younger and more attractive than her. Emily Kaldwin is such a woman. "A fighter as well as a warrior," Euron notes. Emily, for her part, is not interested in Euron, thankfully. Corvo is not amused in the least.
    • Euron also has an unhealthy obsession with Geralt's foster daughter, Ciri Elen Riannon. A hunter of the supernatural and an Empress? And her deified cousin, the Duchess of Touissant isn't bad-looking either. This pisses Geralt off something serious.
  • Heard about Red Sonja's challenge, and decides to take her up on it. Too bad that Euron is a rapist. While not on part with Gregor Clegane, that little detail still set Sonja off. Euron was forced to retreat, lest the furious swordswoman try and geld him.
  • Euron finds himself on most of the pirate deities' shit-list. He is, however, absolutely terrified of Cervantes de Leon. Euron crossed paths with the undead pirate in the past. It nearly ended with Cervantes bisecting Euron in two while possessed by Soul Edge. Even without the cursed blade, Cervantes is a threat. Euron decided that it would be best to avoid him.
    • Also steers clear of Raoh. Anyone who rides a horse the size of an elephant and can casually backhand the head off a person's shoulders is someone that needs to be watched...especially if said offender happened to be one of his men.
  • Even before leaving King's Landing to fight with the North, Jaime Lannister despises Euron. In a time which Tyrion himself kills Gregor Clegane during his trial by combat, Jaime and Euron squared off during a battle at sea. Despite Euron's sorcery and his assortment of dirty tricks (and insults), Jaime slays him, thus earning a more favorable nickname - Crowslayer.
  • Euron sees the half-naked wenches hanging around Conan and wonders what he has that makes him irresistible to the ladies. Is it his natural charm... or something else entirely? That or the fact that the deified Cimmerian is a monster on the battlefield. Euron trembles with anticipation over who is the better fighter between the two.
  • Among the many, many Houses he's banned from, the House of Dragons top the list. The reason being is that Euron is in possession of Dragonbinder, a six-foot long dragon horn that can bring a dragon under his control. That is something even the Dovahkiin cannot allow.
  • Also has a spot in Military Ranks.

    Ginosaji 
Ginosaji, The God of Torturously Long and Drawn-Out Murders, and Spoons (The Spoon Killer, The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ginosaji_4649.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A square seal containing katakana reading “su-pu-n”.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Spoons, Slowly Beating People To Death With A Spoon, Spoon Tapping, Cruel and Unusual Death, Implacable Man, Immortal Assassin, Improbable Weapon User, Silent Antagonist
  • Domains: Spoons, Stalking, Torture, Insanity, Patience, Murder (eventually)
  • Followers: “It”, Johnny, The Owner, Alanis Morissette, Jane
  • High Priest: The Sheriff of Nottingham, whose propensity for both torture and spoons was previously unmatched.
  • Allies: Alakazam, Pyramid Head, Slender Man, Balloon Boy, AM, The Jigsaw Killer, Mewtwo
  • Enemies: Luke Skywalker, Neo, Mahiro, The Doctor, Virtually Everyone in the House of Food
  • Due to the immortal nature of gods, he tends to give up and randomly choose a new victim after a certain amount of time. This amount of time can range anywhere between a couple of hours and a few years. Although he can’t actually kill any of them no matter how many times he hits them with a spoon, it still hurts like hell.
    • The only exception was Kenny McCormick, who was hit with a spoon a single time, causing him to fall over backwards off a cliff and into a pit of spikes, killing him. Ginosaji was especially confused the next day when he saw Kenny walking by as if nothing happened.
  • One of his favorite methods of torture is to repeatedly strike his victims hands while they are eating, causing them to drop their food/drink in the process. This has earned him the ire of the ENTIRE House of Food.
  • While Celty Sturluson was his chosen victim, he exclusively attacked her helmet. While no physical pain was caused, the noise was beyond unbearable. Any attempt she made at taking it off only resulted in him immediately putting it back on.
  • Magneto once tried to use his powers to take away Genosaji’s various spoons. It worked at first, until he literally pulled a wooden serving spoon out of his ass and started hitting him with it. It was considerably worse than the small metal spoons he was using.
  • Johnny Cage once tried to fend him off by punching his crotch. He refuses to talk about what happened afterwards…
  • Once defeated Luke Skywalker in a lightsaber duel. Luke doesn’t like to talk about it.
  • Despite his negative opinion on any creature that relentlessly stalks its victims, The Doctor is openly impressed by his sheer talent with spoons.
  • The gods in general prefer not to engage him, out of fear of being repeatedly and mercilessly whacked with a spoon.
  • Was allies with Jigsaw to setting up the greatest, most psychologically painful trap ever produced. Out of relief of everyone in the Pantheon, the two butt-head over different methods (Jigsaw prefers to avoid the dirty works while Ginosaji wants to go there and attack directly) and parted way.
  • However, he doesn't chase after Tommy Wiseau after learning that the latter has weird fascination for spoons and plans to steal all his spoons so Wiseau can decorate his temple with them.
  • Is currently interested in recruiting Alakazam and Mewtwo given that both of them can be seen holding a spoon as their weapons. Mewtwo is annoyed by this given that only an alternative version of it holds a spoon.

  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The bloodstained head of Billy the puppet.
  • Theme Song: "Hello, Zepp"
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (That's not what he thinks, though...)
  • Portfolio: Jigsaw Plot, Nightmare Fuel, Bastard Understudy, Humans Are Bastards, To the Pain, Sadistic Choice, Room Full of Crazy
  • Followers: Archibald Grims. Konrad Marburg
  • Domains: Darkness, Mentalism
  • Rumored Mentor: Kevin McCallister
  • Allies: Death (Final Destination)
  • Ascended after the events of his series. His ability to make others mutilate in order to pass the puzzles and putting sadistic choices is what gained him a place in the Pantheon.
  • All other gods are currently unsure if Jigsaw still has his brain tumor. No-one likes to ask.
  • Monokuma once got his hands on some of the more insane and impractical trap ideas that Jigsaw drew while having had one too many shots of whisky. Monokuma made them work somehow and has them in stand-by mode for more ironic executions. His Mastermind on the other hand has begun stealing some of Jigsaws more painfull trap-ideas, hoping to mix them all together into one big Despair-inducing monstrocity for herself.

    Richard Trager 
"Dr." Richard Trager, God of Cutting Fingers (Rick, Secular Maniac, White Collar Business School Douchebag)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trager.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His shears
  • Theme Song: Trager chase theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Asshole Victim, Fond of Cold-Blooded Torture, Trapped in an elevator door and crushed, Faux Affably Evil, Laughably Evil, "Mad Doctor", Naked Apron, Armed with shears
  • Domains: Executives, Mutilation, Psychopats, Corruption, Torture
  • Allies: Asdrubael Vect, Pinhead, Euron Greyjoy, The Jigsaw killer, Sora Takigawa, Nui Harime, Lionel Starkweather, Hannibal Lecter, Desaad, Ramsay Bolton
  • Enemies: Ryuko Matoi, Edward Scissorhands, Jontron, Torture Victims
  • Acquiantanced with: Nigel Burke
  • Richard Trager is a peculiar individual. While at first he sounds like a high functioning person, he is nothing but a psychopathic murderer who has a tendency to torture and mutilate his victims, but his latest victim proved to be much smarter than him and ultimately Trager met his end via elevator crushing.
  • In reality he isn't a doctor, he just likes to pretend to be one just for fun and giggles. He was actually a Murkoff executive who was submitted by force to the Morphogenic Engine and he is just in his forties! That isn't much of a Freudian Excuse though, as it doesn't make his past actions any less awful than his current ones.
  • His method of "treating" his victims is very simple: "First the fingers, then the balls, then the tongue". Many deities cringed in terror after hearing this and Miles Upshur was fortunate enough to break out before he could procede any further after getting his fingers cut.
    • And you may ask, what if the victim is female? Well, Trager doesn't have a problem going a bit deeper as he says. Though he may also change things up a bit and go for the tongue first since women tend to be louder, according to him anyway.
    • Since the other two positions were already filled, Trager was appointed to the remaining one. Even then, he is in amicable terms with Euron Greyjoy given their shared psychopatic tendencies.
  • Always armed with Shears, which proves useful once a buddy of his tries to escape. He made a lot of allies like Sora Takigawa or Nui Harime who are also armed with similar weapons, and find Trager's "patients treatment" to be rather interesting.
    • That said, he was rather disappointed in Edward Scissorhands, since his hands would really come in handy for him. Scissorhands on his part of how of a disgusting human being Trager is.
    • Heard that Jontron had a irrational fear of Scissors and so decided to mess with him just for the hell of it.
  • He is one of the worst deities when it comes to torturing someone, since he doesn't kill his victim outright but keeps them alive to prolongue their suffering. And considering the Pantheon works with death, this definitely something that makes Trager one of the more scary lesser deities in the pantheon halls.
    • For this fact alone, he managed to befriend Asdrubael Vect and Pinhead the moment he entered the Slaughterhouse. No small feat for a guy who just was experimented on.
  • He tends to refer to everyone as buddy, even to his victims. His jovial and silly attitude had made some people believe he is not that bad, even when visibly torturing people.
  • Apparently Lionel Starkweather has been interested making a documentary about him and his long work sessions and turn into a film. Trager apparently agreed, so long as he brings some fresh recruits for Trager to experiment on.
  • Sometimes can be spotted playing golf in the house of Sports, something he used to do when he was an executive.
  • Considered the only deity who has managed to make the Naked Apron look disgusting.
  • Rumored to be one of the people that sells organ and bodyparts to Nigel Burke. He has a lot of those in his temple according to unknown sources, but discourage investigating it unless you want to get caught by Trager.
  • "BUDDY!"

    Sean Archer and Castor Troy 
Sean Archer and Castor Troy, Dual Gods of Facial Removal
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nicolas_cage_and_john_travolta_in_face_off.jpg
Sean Archer is the left, Castor Troy is the right. They swapped faces.
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: Their own faces
  • Alignment:
  • Portfolio: Playing each other, Arch-Enemy of each other, changed faces through plastic surgery, Ham-to-Ham Combat, Papa Wolves ironically to each other's child, wield gold-plated twin Colt 1911s
  • Domains: Face, Identity, Switch
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Each other (of course), Shinnok
  • Avatar: Nicolas Cage (Castor)
  • Odd Friendship: Archangel Michael (Sean)
  • The two deities were mortal enemies for many years, especially in a botched assassination by Castor Troy which results in Sean Archer's son's death. When he caught Troy, he has placed a bomb in the city and only his brother knows of its location. The only solution was switching faces and identity in order to gain the information but Troy manage to take his face and poses as him. With a criminal taking his identity and his family, it became personal.
  • The two would have their face swapped from time to time and various doctors had to give back their original faces. There was one instance where The Medic surgically gave their faces back and upon leaving the door, his doves begin flying away in pure awesomeness.
    • When Castor woke up to find out that his face is gone, he grew berserk and try to find the doctor who did the procedure. And during this, they saw his lack of face... and it wasn't pretty.
  • In the House of Faith, a choir was set up singing Hallelujah. While Castor was finish setting up a bomb to explode, he decide to take part in the choir while headbanging to the choir and groping one of the choir girl and orgasm. HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!
  • Both of them ironically are Papa Wolves but they show it from their enemies' children like Castor beating up Jamie (Sean's daughter)'s abusive boyfriend as well as teaching her to use a butterfly knife in self defense and Sean protecting Adam (Castor's son) during a raid between the FBI and Castor's old gang.
    • He regretted even thinking of teaching her how to use the butterfly knife when she used it on his leg. He also wanted to kill the Spy because he uses one and in a crazed paranoia.
  • There is one thing about Castor Troy, he hates rapists since he once beat up Jamie's boyfriend for attempting date rape. This is despite him groping a choir girl after setting up a bomb, suggest a rape threat to Sean during their encounter in the hangar, and later licking her in his and Sean's last encounter, while wearing her father's face.
  • Castor has a fetish for peaches as he had said it to his girlfriends and even toward Sean's daughter while wearing his face. Needless to say, the deities associated with peaches were pretty disgusted with him.
  • Sean lost his son Michael when Castor tried to assassinate him while they were at a carnival. This resulted in him having a personal vendetta against him and became obsessed with hunting him down. He can sympathize those who have lost their children, especially if they were murdered.
  • Sean doesn't like drugs since he had a wicked headache when one of Castor's henchman served him a punched drink. While on the high, he planned to capture Castor who's wearing his face and have his face... off! Criminals agree that when Sean is Castor, they should never give him drugs because he would have weird ideas.
  • Both of these men met Nicolas Cage at one point. Sean first thought that he was Castor and tried to arrest him but then Castor showed up and found this man rather amusing in how he looked like him. When both of these men showed up at the same scene, HALLELUJAH! They both learned that the Nostalgia Critic commissioned that their theme would be the choir.
  • Despite their different motives, Sean managed to befriend the Archangel Michael, but was pessimistic at first because he thought he stole his face like Castor have. On the other hand, he dislikes a mobster who looks just like him.
  • Shinnok once used his magic to steal one of his kombatant's faces and wears them. Castor doesn't like that when people use his face for anything.
  • Are acquainted with Ethan Hunt, who worked with their director once.
