  • Evil Counterpart to: Hit
  • Real estate tycoon. Galactic conqueror. Terrifying despot. Exterminator. Traitor. Trades in fear, terror, and agony, for they are the only things he seems to understand. Inspires mutual hatred in almost everyone he knows unless they are similarly evil and/or just plain weird. Natural power and potential almost unrivaled. This is Lord Frieza, the Emperor of the Universe.
  • Often confuses the other gods by appearing in his myriad other forms. For a long time, no one had seen Final Form Frieza and lived…except for Jack Bauer. And Goku.
  • He doesn't consider that his brother Cooler should join the Pantheon. Why? Because he's a prick. After ascending, He's going to slap Cooler in his smug prick face.
    • Unfortunately, and much to Frieza's chagrin, Vanitas has been working on getting Cooler into the Pantheon.
    • And has succeeded. Thankfully, they're not in the same House.
  • Also, he's kept a mental list of how many heroic speeches he's heard before.
  • Really needs to lay off the Space Twitter.
    Frieza: Lol Blewed up Filthy Monkey Planet.
  • With the recent ascension of Sun Wukong, Frieza is getting really tired of monkeys ascending into the pantheon, so he orders the Ginyu Force to kill any other monkeys who attempt to ascend.
  • He's still seeking immortality, which is really odd since he's already a God. Most likely he just wants to be extra-unkillable when he finally faces Goku in a rematch.
  • Recently, Sorbet and Tagoma, two of his followers are planning to revive him. If he does come back more powerful then ever, the GUAG fears what could happen to his archenemy, Goku.
    • Indeed, he proved to be more powerful, but still couldn't defeat Goku because of his impatience and blew up Earth in a fit of rage. Whis stopped him by pulling a Superman and turning back time so that Goku and Vegeta could put an end to Freeza for another time.
  • He and Corset have forged an alliance based on them sounding the same and their ideas of tyranny.
  • As of late, he is rarely ever out of the House of Power, being busy training for his upcoming rematch with Goku.
  • Is a fan of LittleKuriboh, seeing his portrayal of him as perfectly encapsulating his character.
  • With his brother in the Pantheon, Cooler has been constantly teasing Frieza, usually relating to Frieza playing "Pretty Pink Princess". Frieza vehemently denies ever doing so. Recently.
    • He enjoyed seeing Cooler freak out upon discovering that he had come back with power that rivals Beerus, since this boost of power means Cooler might be disqualified for the position of Stronger Sibling. Cooler is currently fighting for his long-held position.
      • Upon hearing of Cooler's invasion of the House of War, Frieza let him be. He's proven himself the stronger sibling, which is more than enough to satisfy him.
  • Zamasu claims that Frieza, perhaps more so than even Goku, is proof of the depravity of mortals and the failure of the gods. Despite being as evil if not more so, most concede he has an argument; the fact that Beerus and Shin didn't interfere against Frieza is one of the reasons why Universe 7 is the second-lowest in rank. Frieza is entirely disdainful of Zamasu himself, not only because he's gotten tired of hearing people in his cosmos extolling their personal brands of justice, whether hypocritical or not, but also because one of his components wears Goku's face. Just seeing that form is bad enough, but knowing that Zamasu wields it about as naturally as an arrogant doll is icing on the cake, if only because it takes away some of the satisfaction from beating Goku's face in.
  • Others who believe that the strong should rule over the weak, such as Azula, King Bradley, and even Ragyo Kiryuin as depraved and sadistic as she is (though upon second glance, that would be a plus for Frieza), have started to gain Frieza's support. Reportedly the Lord of the Universe thinks that some version of Earth should have what he deems to be a suitable ruler. Many don't quite know what to make of this, but most can agree that whatever his endgame is cannot be good.
    • Frost thinks the ones most in danger are those "suitable rulers" themselves, given his experience being played for a fool by Frieza. That or anything else aside, the Emperor of Mankind cannot abide by this and has expressed his desire to see Frieza eliminated.
    Frieza: Hah! Go ahead and try…you sentimental fool.
  • Frieza has a mysterious origin that not even the gods of the pantheon know much about. What is known about is that according to Chronoa, Frieza's background is different in many timelines.
    • In a different timeline, Frieza was created by the Supreme Kai of the West in order to obtain the strongest entity in the universe. Frieza laughed at the idea, but also considered himself flattered of being considered a godly being.
  • After hearing about the feared and powerful alien conqueror Boros, Frieza decided to confront him personally to see just how true the rumors of his strength were. Boros smiled gleefully at the prospect of being challenged by another powerful alien overlord like himself, and yes, both were pleased with the resulting battle. So pleased, in fact, that the two intergalactic lords became best buddies, much to the shock and horror of everyone else.
    • When Frieza told Boros how he achieved his strongest form after a mere four months of training, Boros started to take sparring matches with him whenever they both had time. During these sparring sessions, he would occasionally talk of the Saiyans, venting his hatred for them and referencing their immense combat potential. Much to Frieza's pleasure, he and Boros have improved their skills considerably from this parring, and Boros plans on testing his gains out against the Saiyans.
  • When Android 21 surfaced to revive him for what was chronologically the second time only so she could eventually beat him up and then eat him up, he was utterly indignant about the mere idea of being cultivated as livestock. Now that she's ascended, he wants to score payback and erase her. Even if she's playing goody-two-shoes at the moment.
  • Frieza was enraged to learn that King Kai was the one who helped out the Z-Fighters, claiming that he had no right to interfere with his actions as he ran a perfectly Lawful Evil business; an argument no-one else buys, and Frieza likely wouldn't follow anyway. He ended up getting his revenge by proxy. After honoring his deal with the others in the Tournament of Power, Whis resurrected him at the behest of Beerus. King Kai, who like Frieza has been dead for years, was unbelievably annoyed that Frieza was revived by the good guys before he was.
  • Despite being professional enough to not confront him during the Tournament of Power, Android 18 has a deep grudge against Frieza stemming from when he killed Krillin. Were it not for the Dragon Balls, she would've never met her husband because of him. It doesn't help that Krillin is obviously still spooked by Frieza; when the monster returned, he had her stay behind despite being stronger than him specifically to protect their daughter Marron even before finding out anything about Frieza's massive gains in strength.
  • Absolutely HATES anything cute, regarding being trapped in Earth's Hell. He has united with The Trix occasionally since they were all trapped in similar cutesy places.
  • Turles has shown a deep hatred of Frieza's race and wishes to wipe them all out. When the Tournament of Power happened, Turles was livid because FRIEZA was part of Team Universe 7. He'd rather Universe 7 get erased than allow that psychopath to work with the Saiyans. Frieza merely responded that he was a pale imitation, about to become even paler as he's planning something big.
  • Oddly, it turns out the hatred he feels for Goku is not the bigoted and condescending type reserved for former underlings like Vegeta, Nappa and Raditz; rather, it resembles the antagonistic "friendship" shared between the likes of Batman and The Joker. After all, Goku is the man whose courage, hard work and honor allowed him to best him not once, but twice; that alone entitles the Saiyan warrior to his sincere respect, especially as it caused Frieza to dedicate himself to actual training, becoming stronger than he could've known. After fighting side by side as brothers-at-arms to protect Universe Seven in the Tournament of Power, this respect is now completely mutual on Goku's part. Ryu and Akuma have both compared this to the recent turn in their own relationship; two enemies destined to fight again, but both acknowledging each other as true warriors this time.
    • In fact, Freeza's respect and admiration extends to both Goku's father Bardock and his eldest child Gohan, the former for his sharing his son's courage and the latter for his intelligence and cunning. Even before the former was fully realized, it was worth noting he remembered Bardock's name and face far more vividly than even those of King Vegeta. With Gohan, the respect is mutual after they worked together during the Tournament of Power. With Bardock, it is most decidedly not.
    • Goku himself is not the only god who gained respect for Frieza through his efforts in the Tournament. At Beerus' request, Whis resurrected the Emperor of the Universe once again.
  • He has been Locked Out of the Loop that both his deaths are because of time travel. He was first killed by Future Trunks, and when he tried to Rage Quit the second time around Whis rewinded time so Goku could kill him. (Goku was originally the one to kill him in Trunks and Cell's timeline.) Upon his revival he was very confused as to why there was a kid version of his executioner. Ascending into the Pantheon led him to learn about Future Trunks, and has sworn one day to find his timeline and make him pay. For now, however, he's more focused on his enemies in the present timeline. That, and rebuilding his empire upon his third revival. He's learned the importance of Pragmatic Villainy, no need to rush against Future Trunks.
  • To many's surprise, he and Hit have actually met before. He promised to one day make the Universe 6 assassin beg to be killed.
  • Frieza was approached by a being called Infinite who resides in Vegeta's subhouse and also hates the Saiyan Prince. Infinite believed that the two were similar enough in how they fell from power, came back stronger, and still lost in the end that they could strike up an alliance against Vegeta. Frieza, however, saw that Infinite was still stuck in his hubris and could not maximize his true power because of it, so instead he made a counter-proposal to have Infinite work for him. The jackal walked off in a huff, though Frieza is holding patience to see if he later changes his mind.
  • Recently has taken to having wine on weekends with fellow Mafioso bosses Vito and Michael Corleone; though Vito is impressed by the success of the alien Don's business ventures, he remains wary of finalizing any deals with him due to his utter lack of honor and boundaries. Frieza for his part has taken a great liking to Michael, for his ruthlessness willingness to kill his own incompetent brother Fredo in order to secure his business interests.
  • Despite rejecting his subordinates Sorbet and Tagoma's idea to revive his father and predecessor along with him after they discussed how it was foiled by Emperor Pilaf's group, Frieza was pleased to see the return of King Cold in the Pantheon. He admits Cold had a point about being pragmatic, and while Cold's parenting was an odd mishmash of harsh and spoiling, it did produce the Emperor of The Universe. Cold is also not upset with Frieza, but rather proud of him for his development; instead his ire is focused on the Pilaf gang.
  • Also resides in the House of Power.

Intermediate Gods

    Ludwig the Accursed 
Ludwig, the God Who turned into the Very Thing He Fought Against (Ludwig the Accursed, The first Healing Church Hunter, Ludwig the Holy Blade)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_100.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Radiant Hunters Badge, or alternatively, the Holy Moonlight Sword
  • Leitmotif: Ludwig, the Accursed, shifts to Ludwig the Holy Blade once he retains his sanity
  • Alignment: Was Lawful Good in his human life, Chaotic Neutral as a beast
  • Portfolio: Grotesque Mutation, Fallen Hero, Was Once a Man, Competent Clerics, Looks Like A Centuar, Was really a good guy for Yharnam, Master Swordsman (even in his monstrous form), Left-handed, Monster Knight, Even as a monster, it can still speak, Considers the Holy Moonlight Sword as his mentor, Dying as Yourself
  • Domains: Beasthood, Transformation, Swordsmanship, Humanity (formerly), Moonlight
  • Followers: Most Yharnamite citizens
  • High Priest: Nathan Hale
  • Allies: The Hunter, Knight Artorias, Guts, The Skull Knight, most gods from the House of Heroes (though they sometimes avoid him, because of his looks)
  • Commonality Connection: Leah, Samurai Jack, The Puella Magi
  • Fears: The Monster Hunters
  • Adores: Leonidas and the Spartans
  • Enemies: Micolash, The Great Ones, Manus, Aidan
  • There was hero in Yharnam who was iconic to its citizens. Who rallied them into fighting against the beastly menance, and also brought the introduction of the Healing Church hunters. This was Ludwig, the heroic hunter of the healing church. He fought against the beasts, seeing a glimmer of hope in repelling the scourge. Unfortunately, his hunts would soon lead him to his fall, and after succumbing into the hunt itself, Ludwig transformed into the hideous beast who he is now.
  • During his introduction to Pantheon grounds, the Court of the Gods kept their eyes on him, as knowing his beastly nature, he would go berserk at any time. This jinxed it, and Ludwig soon fell into a beastly rampage. The rampage ended when the Hunter was called to take him down once more, alongside the aid of the Monster Hunters, and eventually Geralt too.
    • During the fight however, as the were close to take him down, Ludwig finally took his conscious back, and wielded him his iconic weapon, the Holy Moonlight Sword into battle. it was intense, but they managed to pull their victory regardless.
  • As one would expect, Ludwig's beastly incarnation was the result of the nature of the Yharnam hunts, the same fate that most of the Yharnamites fell into, except unlike the remaining citizens, he was stuck in the Hunter's Nightmare and was transformed into a bull-centuar thing. Among those transformed, his fate was the worst of them all.
  • One thing that makes Ludwig unique is his possession of the sword, known as the Holy Moonlight Sword, an iconic sword powered by moonlight. This item inspired many to replicate such beauty, such as forming Ludwig's Holy Blade. However, it should be noted that the sword may have been the main cause of Ludwig's fall to insanity, but also regards it as his mentor, giving ideas that the sword may be sentient.
    • Due to its link with moonlight, the Bringers of Everlasting Night have thoughts on bringing him to the group, with their intentions of stealing it and using it for their plans. He isn't too keen on joining the group, making the plan on hold.
  • Adores Leonidas and his army for good reasons. He created the Healing Church hunters to be the Spartans against the hunt, believing that success is within his hunters. The Spartan applauds this but doesn't want to spoil the fact that Ludwig's efforts were in vain.
  • Despite being a beast, he thanks the Hunter for helping him reclaim his humanity and has offered his assistance to him. He also claims that without the Hunter's intervention within the nightmare, he would have died as he was a beast with no conscience.
    • Unfortunately, his proud attitude was short-lived upon hearing that Micolash, among all the people, had ascended alongside the Great Ones. He blames him for causing the entire city of Yharnam, and the Healing Church to fall into chaos since he and the School of Mensis kept on communicating with the Old Ones, resulting into the scourge that left the city in flames. The only thing he wants from him is blood, and a deserving death.
  • Has been given a chance to join alongside Guts, alongside with the Skull Knight, for his worthiness in battles. He's also glad that even inside a beast, still lies a man with a conscience. Guts however still can't forget about a certain rape horse due to his looks
  • Ludwig finds great kinship in Artorias, of whom he was the former High Priest. Both of them are once-beloved heroes who were corrupted and became the very thing they fought against. They have both agreed to help the other fight the source of their respective corruptions and went as far as to make a vow that they both be ready to strike the other one down should they completely lose themselves once more.
  • Aidan, after looking at Ludwig's fate, tried to persuade him into joining the ranks with Diablo. While both of them had the same fates, Ludwig's doesn't trust him at the slightest bit, as he belives that he and him are different, especially their roles after their fates. With Ludwig able to retain his sanity, in comparison to Aidan, who basically just followed Diablo even within the Pantheon grounds.
  • Ironically, he gets along with many other victims who became the very thing they detested against. Very weird for someone who's a beast.
    • Samurai Jack once entered his temple, seeking advice for being the first Healing Church hunter. Once Ludwig heard of the samurai's tales of once being an Aku, he befriended him seeing that he also resisted being a permanant Aku. So much that Jack asked if he would join with him to take the personification of evil itself. Ludwig, filled with pride, accepted his invitation.
    • The Puella Magi on the other hand has a mixed opinion on him, seeing his form as a constant reminder on what happened to them in their timelines. Among those who avoid him, its Sayaka Miki who avoids him the most, due to giving her flashbacks of her inevitable fate as a witch.
  • Also has a spot on the House of Monsters.
  • You were at my side, all along. My true mentor, my guiding moonlight.

    Ryu (Breath of Fire
Ryu, Co-God(s) of Draconic Transformations
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bof_1514.png
The 3rd, the 2nd, the 1st, the 4th and the 5th
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: A pyramidal Dragon Gene
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Heroic Mimes, Half Human Dragons, Power Copying, Swordsmen, Bishōnen Line Transformations, Legacy Character
  • Domains: Dragon, Force, Scalykind
  • Followers: Jake Long
  • Allies: Bahamut, The other Ryu, Liu Kang, Davion, the ToQgers
  • Opposed by: Lina Inverse, Dovakhiin, Ornstein, Wormy, Acnologia
  • Good Counterpart to: Maleficent
  • Ryu rarely ever speaks, because he is said to move mountains and torch villages simply by breathing. None of this is true, of course, but nobody dares ask him questions. He speaks mostly through his consort, Winged Humanoid Nina of Windia. The one time he was able to talk freely...didn't end quite as well for him.
  • Due to her reputation, Ryu is forever opposed by Lina Inverse.
    • If he is defeated by him, He will forever be Dovakhin's slave.
    • And to pile up to this, Ornstein seems to also be after his head, after he failed in his intent to kill Hyodo Issei, following opposition from his master Gwyn. It's still not known whether he'd kill all five of them or just one, though.
    • Acnologia can not believe he would choose his human side over his "superior" dragon side. And yes, he would kill all five of them if given the chance.
  • Has been on a long, complex vendetta against a dragon who goes by Wormy for crimes that Wormy euphemistically calls "War Gaming".
  • The ToQgers got surprised that he has the same voice as Ticket. Right attempts to unmask him, claiming that he's Ticket in disguise.
  • Yes, there are five Ryus in total. Where they might differ in ways, they are generally the same.
  • Originally hailed as the Lord(s) or Humanoid Dragons, most gods noticed that most of their dragon transformations look more dragon-like than human-like. However, since everyone but the 5th (who has the closest to Draconic Humanoid transformation, ironically enough) has multiple dragon transformations, they were promoted to here.

Lesser Gods

    Alexei Stukov 
Alexei Stukov, God of Viral Transformation (Vice-Admiral, Infested Admiral)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stukov_1.jpg
Stukov before his infestation 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His hat and a remnant of the United Earth Directorate insignia
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (formerly Lawful Evil)
  • Portfolio: Vice-Admiral of the UED Expeditionary Fleet and Competent Officer, Once pure Human, Coffin Shot into Space, Russian Taking Many Pain like Betrayal, Vodka Drinker, Cannot Return Back to Earth And Anticipates the UED's return
  • Domains: Virus, Transformation
  • Allies: Kerrigan, Zagara, Abathur, Raynor, Artanis
  • Enemies: Samir Duran, Arcturus Mengsk, Albert Wesker, The Borg Queen, Nurgle, Typhus
  • Odd Friendship: Heavy, Aya Brea, Zarya
  • The Zerg has developed an incurable (only because it develops too quickly) disease known as the Hyper-evolutionary virus that can transform any humans into infest terrans. For example, this man was the Vice-Admiral of the UED Expeditionary Fleet who died during the conflict called the Brood War. His corpse was shot off into space and was apparently founded by a renegade cerebrate named Kaloth who revived and infested him. He was saved by Raynor and several Protoss with an experimental cure, in which it failed much later when he was experimented by Moebius Foundation. He eventually escaped the Foundation and contacted Kerrigan with the Skygeirr Station destroyed and the leader Emil Narud dead, he has joined the Swarm with nowhere else to go.
    • Long story short, everything sucks for him and is now a zombie man.
    Stukov: Let's recap. I was betrayed and killed, shot into space, captured by the zerg, resurrected and infested, cured, given to Moebius to research the protoss cure, and was instead experimented on as the cure slowly failed. Everyone up to speed? Good.
  • He is allied with Raynor and Artanis, despite being antagonistic toward each other during the Brood War. Though they were responsible for freeing him from Kaloth's control and giving him an experimental cure. Even if it didn't work, he commends them for trying.
  • Since he was infected and transformed by a virus, he admits to not liking the Borg Queen despite some similarity to Kerrigan. Perhaps unlike Kerrigan, she wasn't fully involved with his transformation and she is also transformed like him, unlike that of the Queen.
    • He is disgusted with Nurgle who makes viruses for the sake of creating plagues and death, unlike his virus which transformed him and becoming an agent of the Zerg. The same goes for his follower, Typhus. When he said he likes to face a god since his alliance with Kerrigan, he certainly wants to do that now.
  • He often miss the day of drinking vodka because of his new biology as an infested terrans, which prevents him from having the same enjoyment from it (plus, everyone ran away from him before he could even be served in the House of Foods).
  • What he miss all is Earth, as he knew that he could no longer return to his home as an infested Terran and the fact that the United Earth Directorate hasn't given up on the Koprulu Sector yet. He wants to lie low in the Pantheon as his presence might frighten many humans because of his infestation and it might alert the UED into the Pantheon.
  • When there are other Russian men who have suffered so much, he thought he had it worse. Thus, a strange friendship occurred as a result.
  • Obviously, he doesn't get along with Arcturus Mengsk due to past histories. Back when he was human, he was the second-in-command of the UED Fleet sent to overthrow him in the Brood War, and years later after becoming an infested terran, he aided Kerrigan in her quest for vengeance against him.
  • Wesker had shown interest in him as he injected himself a virus which made him much stronger, even after death. He has considered making an alliance with the infested terran with such similar background, only to be disappointed that Stukov considered him a madman and predicted that he was going to be a test subject for his quest for perfection, something he'll not take.
    • His accomplice, William Birkins, doesn't get the reception much better with Stukov either as he injected himself with his own virus to become a monster. Stukov is even more disgusted as his virus-transformed into something much worse.
  • Stukov has used infest terrans as his primary force and as a former Vice-Admiral, he is still a military tactician. His forces are almost like that of a Terran army but infested by Zerg biology and tactics, making him one of the most unorthodox fighting force.
    Stukov: "My forces are unorthodox... but effective."
  • Aya Brea nearly aimed at him when she thought he was a mutated man, in which he ensures her that he meant no harm.
  • Stukov overheard from his fellow Zerg allies about the so-called Nexus and so decided to find out what was it all about. He properly joined shortly after, apparently his time in the House of Health and Diseases has made him develop viruses that are able to heal his allies and infect his enemies and now his arm is much bigger after the Zerg infestation grew stronger in him.
  • He is also seen in the House of Health and Diseases.

    Jimenez 
Jimenez, God of Emergency Transformations (Awake Jimenez, Soil Jimenez)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/awake_jimenez_1.jpg
His human form 
Soil Jimenez 
  • Theme Song: Theme of Chaos, The Tyrannical Hero
  • Lesser God (Formerly Demigod, Intermediate God as Soil Jimenez)
  • Symbol: Bugaboo's mask breaking a Demonica's mask
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, though not as completely as he may like. His New Chaos ending self is more along the lines of Chaotic Neutral.
  • Portfolio: Eagleland, Mercenary, Was Once a Man, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Forsaking his humanity, Merging with Bugaboo to save both their lives, The Social Darwinist, Power Born of Madness, Choosing to stay with the demons of the Schwarzwelt, Deadpan Snarker, Half-Human Hybrid, Absurdly Sharp Claws, Playing with Fire, Chaos Tack
  • Domains: Power, Demons, Madness, Shape
  • Allies: Mem Aleph, Lucifer and the rest of the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, Albert Wesker, Alipheese Fateburn, Luka, Apollyon
  • Enemies: YHVH and the rest of the Grand United Alliance of Law, Zelenin, Flynn, Nanashi, Mamori and Mirei
  • A soldier sent to investigate the Schwarzwelt and keep it from wiping out humanity, Jimenez ran across an abused demon named Bugaboo, who he adopted. During his journey through the parallel world, Jimenez's opinion of humanity was eroded away by the sight of their sins, and he gained a new appreciation for the wildness and freedom of the demons. It came to a head when he and Bugaboo were forced by the cruel Captain Jack into a twisted experiment: to save both his and Bugaboo's life, Jimenez had a comrade fuse the two of them together, and the resulting new entity quickly lost himself to his new power and fell in with the demons. Jimenez continues to work with Mem Aleph to awaken the Schwarzwelt, wipe the Pantheon clean of civilization and bring a new age of Chaos.
  • Not liking to take orders more than he has to, Jimenez is a member of Lucifer's Chaos Brigade. He's nursing ambitions to ascend to Lord of Chaos status, but that's still a little beyond his reach. He hasn't given up trying to make himself strong enough to go for it, though...
  • His alliance with Wesker has turned heads, particularly as he was the subject of the sort of mad science Wesker is known for. Honestly, Jimenez couldn't care less, so long as Wesker doesn't screw with any demons. Heck, trying to uplift humanity to survive in a wild, chaotic world is a noble cause in Jimenez's eyes. To this end, he's given Wesker a sample of the Delphinus Parasite.
  • Despite his inhumanity, there's a flicker of Jimenez's old self in him: he's perfectly capable of showing kindness and camaraderie to those he deems worthy. An example of this is Luka: he admires the kid for overthrowing Ilias for the sake of monsters. While the version of him in the Pantheon has surrendered himself to his demonic instincts, an alternate version of him was convinced to follow a different path. There are those who hope to sway this Jimenez in that direction.
  • Was involved in the Ragnarok incident, as the idea of starting a Forever War was too tempting to pass up: it was he who was responsible for abducting Mamori during Mirei's rampage, as well as trying to assassinate Mirei afterwards so as to destroy any hopes of curing the Arms Virus. He only made things worse when he taunted Mirei with the GUAC's plans to have Momoka Sagara forcefully wield Mamori in service of the GUAC once Mirei was gone, in order to enrage Mirei and have her fight at full power. Needless to say, between that and his alliance with Wesker the two really don't like him all that much, while Jimenez is disgusted by their refusal to use their powers to the fullest (ie. use it to crush those weaker than themselves) because of some bullshit morals.
  • Eventually, someone pointed out that he broke his "survival of the fittest" creed when he took in Bugaboo, and he couldn't have survived without Bugaboo sacrificing himself to save him. As a result, he's started to lose his ties to Mem Aleph...and gravitated more to Lucifer's overall goal, now favoring freedom over strength.

  • Symbol: A ukulele
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, formerly True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ambiguously Brown, transformed into a frog by voodoo magic, was very lazy and only seek fun, wooed many women until he fell for Tiana, was cut off by his parents who tried to marry Charlotte for her riches, Mr. Fanservice
  • Domains: Frog, Transformation, Prince
  • Allies: Tiana, Tramp, Charlotte LaBouff, Frog, Thrall, Vol'jin, King Gator, Nazeebo
  • Enemies: Dr. Facilier, Lion, K. Rool
  • Opposes: Brightwing, Barney Stinson
  • He was once a vain and irresponsible prince until he was cut off from his family's wealth. He visited New Orleans where he intend to marry a rich girl, but wanted to have fun so when he was invited by the witch doctor, Dr. Facilier, he was transformed into a frog ("Hop from place to place," indeed). By the time he return to human, his journey with Tiana (who was also turned into a frog) has humbled him.
  • Since then, he is working at his wife's restaurant where he prepared his own fruit salad dish which he thought up of when he tried to pop the question with her when they were frogs, and also still play music for entertainment.
  • So many deities question his ethnicity, in which he isn't very clear on. Is he tan or black? Also, his accent also question which nationality is suppose to be, which also question his skin tone. To make things even more confusing, nobody knows where Maldonia is mapped on Earth. Ambiguous doesn't even describe it.
  • A cursed man named Frog once occupied this temple, but since he was still a man who appear like a frog and is very strong despite the curse, it asked for a change in the occupation. Tiana asked if her husband may ascend to occupy the temple and the Court agree to the change.
  • After being transformed by Dr. Facilier, he tried his best not to take any session from witch doctors who try to con him or any suspicious people who would offer something. Despite this though, he is friends with Thrall and Vol'jin, both being Shaman who could turn their enemies into frogs with Hexes and the latter being a Voodoo doctor, since he and Tiana met a good voodoo doctor named Mama Odie. It's also clear that the two do not wish to use it on him, anyways.
    • However, Lion has no problem hexing him into a frog if he ever crosses him.
    • Another witch doctor Nazeebo doesn't transform people into frogs, he throws frogs at them which explodes. He doesn't know what to think of him, but since he is not a bad person, he might be alright with him.
  • In addition, like Tiana, he seems to retain his ability to speak with animals. He managed to speak with Tramp and learn that he was like him, used to be a lady's "mutt" until he fell for Lady.
  • There was a time when Brightwing turned Naveen into a frog again, and even tried to eat him while in his frog form. Fortunately for him, he managed to "hop" away from the fairie dragon, in which he was able to make use of his frog form during his and Tiana's journey.
  • He doesn't like K. Rool since he and Tiana were attacked by hungry alligators and he wasn't very friendly like his friend Louis the alligator.
    • But he later meet King Gator who is very large and friendly, much like his friend.
  • He would join his wife in watching the two wishing stars the soul of their friend Ray and his love Evangeline. While he doesn't wish for anything, he does know what Tiana would wish for.
  • Both Naveen and Barney do not interact well with each other. Naveen found out of his old history as a manwhore until he married Robin but later divorced her, in which he felt a bit disappointed.

  • He-Man was first spotted in the House of Combat, after many deities saw a lightning bolt, as well as the phrase "By the Power of Grayskull!". Understandably, many rushed to find the source of the lightning bolt, only for them to see He-Man in training. No one knows how he got here in the first place, but after his history is reviewed (and it was decided to ignore his 2002 incarnation), they decided to give him a spot in the Pantheon.
  • Cosmos is the only deity who knows Adam's secret. Everyone else is left scratching their heads.
    • At least that's how it used to be. Because the Pantheon's residents aren't all idiots (though there are certainly some, and even a few of those might be able to tell), they were eventually able to connect the dots (not just from Prince Adam's disappearing whenever He-Man shows up, but also from his sword and the lightning that transforms him, not to mention their only differences is outfits and a tan). Unfortunately, this also means that his identities are now known to Skeletor, whom he isn't surprised to see here. Thankfully, his friends in the Pantheon are more than capable of defending themselves or otherwise have such friends to protect them.
    • Despite being at odds with Skeletor, He-Man still hopes that one day he'll abandon his evil ways, like the times they had to work together, not to mention how he's certainly become a better combatant during the Christmas Special.
  • If he is on break, you will most likely see Prince Adam. If he's sparring, you will usually see He-Man, but there are rare occasions that you will see Prince Adam sparring.
  • Despite his strength, He-Man is largely non-violent and prefers to outsmart his opponents. As such, he tends to throw his opponents into mudholes or bodies of water whenever possible to get them out of the fight. Of course, he won't do this to those who can die from water contact (like the Wicked Witch of the West).
  • Being an 80's cartoon character, He-Man has performed several ridiculous feats such as:
    • Moving mountains.
    • Reversing a tornado by turning himself into a human one (sometimes with the aid of spinning his sword).
    • Running in circles fast enough to create a vacuum.
    • Digging to the center of the planet with nothing but a broken stalactite.
    • Being being able to blow, using the full-capacity of his lungs, a gust of wind powerful enough to knock over most opponents (similar to Superman's "super-breath").
    • Flying short distances on rare occasions.
    • Rubbing his hands together fast enough to turn sand into glass.
    • The inexplicable ability to fix a broken chain by merely connecting both ends.
    • Pushing a moon (once or twice).
    • Shattering/deflecting a falling moon (on a collision course with Eternia) by throwing a rock from the ground at it. This has also earned him the ire of other moon-related deities, especially Nightmare Moon.
  • He-Man despises Dr. Weil, and the feeling is mutual due to their clashing alignments, but it's more of a deal for He-Man because Dr. Weil Weil sounds just like Skeletor. Dr. Weil has plans of kicking He-Man down a few pegs, but only time will tell if it will work.
  • He does not sing. Stop asking him to do that.
  • After dueling with Zero, he has gotten the reploid's approval and a valuable ally. This only further infuriated Dr. Weil.
  • Solid Snake gives him weird looks sometimes. It's either because he sounds similar to him, to Liquid Snake, or because of the ridiculousness of his outfit. Needless to say, they hang out on occasions.
  • Eren once mistook him as Armin due to his appearance, despite the fact that he's larger even as Prince Adam. Somehow, they managed to become friends.
  • Megatron once gave him a weird look due to sounding similar.
    • Despite that, he has managed to forge a friendship with Optimus Prime.
  • Wizard and Boomstick once pitted him in a fairly tough Death Battle against Lion-O. The researchers found the results so lopsided that for once they didn't remove his pacifism as was the norm. That didn't stop him from taking the win by crushing the Eye of Thundera. After realizing he had basically comminted genocide by doing so, he was furious (given he was once tricked into thinking he accidentally murdered an innocent), went over to the researcher duo, and had some words to say to them as he lifted them by their collars and shook them like rattles. It was a cathartic day for those who hate their battles. And he certainly won't be revealing how to get a part-dragon like Cringer to Boomstick.
    • He has since felt bad for Lion-O though, and becided to become his mentor and try and find a way to ascend him.
  • He-Man can sometimes be spotted in the House of Beasts as a caretaker for the animals, and can be seen in the House of Combat dueling with other sword-wielding gods. Often than not, the duels are a spectacular sight.
  • He is one of the few gods to chase the Deviljho back into its temple. At least Skeletor isn't controlling it. No, he didn't kill it, he just used his bolas.
  • He is NOT in the closet, despite wearing pink and his double entendre-ridden dialogues and body actions.
  • Somehow, an arranged fight was held between He-Man and Ryuko Matoi. Doctors were on sight for anyone who fainted in the crowd. The result of the battle? A draw. The crowd? Many cases of bad nosebleeds.
  • Even with his powers, he has no contempt for technological tools, given he has a friend and confidant in the inventor/gadgeteer Man-At-Arms.
  • He once sounded similar to The Punisher and Ivan Drago. It was a weird experience for him.
  • Apparently, Lord Hater made a parody cartoon that includes aspects of his show to try and win Lord Dominator's affections.
  • Despite having quite a bit similarities with Skeletor, he sees Papyrus as a jovial fellow to be around as well as a reliable pacifist combatant. He can appreciate Sans' humor as well, not to mention his ability in combat should it come down to that. If only he weren't so lazy…

"Let the power return!"
