  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Taurus constellation
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Rampaging Bull, Will Cause Famine and Destruction, Sent to Earth by Isthar to Get Back at Gilgamesh, Killed by Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Sometimes Depicted with Human Head And Wings
  • Domains: Bulls, Destruction, Famine
  • Allies: Hydra, Quadratus
  • Enemies: Gilgamesh, Tiamat, Tapu Bulu, Spring Sprite
  • Fears: Quetzalcoatl
  • The Bull of Heaven is a divine bull told in Mesopotamian mythology. It is a bull who could drink rivers dry, create giant craters by simply snorting and bring forth seven-year long famine from how destructive he is. When Ishtar was rejected by Gilgamesh, she demanded her father Anu to give her the Bull so that she can get her revenge. Anu eventually submitted and gave the Bull into Ishtar's hands. Ultimately the might bull was slain by Gilgamesh and Enkidu, though the Bull's death angered the gods enough to eventually lead to Enkidu's death.
  • Gilgamesh was furious that the Bull is here in the Pantheon. Mainly because he just knows that it is Ishtar's way to bother him until she herself can find a way to conveniently be in the Pantheon. He will make sure that there won't be enough left of the Bull to be sacrificed if he gets his hands on him.
  • Is also called Gugalanna, who just happens to be the same name as the first husband of Ereshkigal. We are not certain if the two are the same person.
  • Within the Babylonia Singularity, Gilgamesh had plans to use the Bull against Tiamat if he were to acquire an alliance with Ishtar. The plan fell short when Ishtar revealed that she somehow lost sight of a mountain-sized bull. It was really embarrassing to her to say the least. However, what seemed to have happened is that the Bull was summoned into a different timeline by Isthar who manifested into the Fake Holy Grail War that was happening in Snowfield. So Ishtar essentially lost the Bull to herself.
    • After looking everywhere for it, Ishtar sort of gave up on finding the Bull, thinking that he has already left to the heavens so there is no point bothering him anymore. Except since Ishtar was still salty about the whole situation, she decided to create a brand new Bull of Heaven by setting up a race within a Singularity taking place in Connacht to act as a summoning ritual. Since she was getting Drunk with Power upon creating Gugalanna Mark II and other complications on her even summoning it, the new Bull was smashed to pieces by Quetzalcoatl with an epic piledriver. The original Bull is understandably terrified on what the Feathered Serpent can do to him.
  • It is surprising that Inanna, the Sumerian counterpart of Ishtar, never ended up summoning the Bull to aid the Divine Powers. How much would have he helped, it is hard to tell, but he would have been some use. It might be that the Bull associates himself with Ishtar more than it does with Inanna.
  • Has a close relation with Hydra as both of them are monsters sent by goddesses to kill a certain hero, but were slain by them instead.
  • No one has dared to breed him with Miltank yet. Miltank is already a pain to deal with, so having her have a child with a divine beast would terrifying.
  • Is despised by Tabu Bulu due of it being a bull-themed Nature Spirit while the Bull is known to be extremely destructive towards nature if given the chance. This hatred also extends to Spring Sprite.
  • Due to how massive the Bull is, he hardly takes interests in other bull-related deities in the Pantheon such as Ferninand (though the latter is terrified of the former) and Baine Bloodhood. Only one who is even on the radar to him is Quadratus due to its size.
  • Odysseus is reminded about the cattle of Helios upon hearing about the Bull, mainly how the gods tried to punish his men for killing the cattle like how the gods got tired of Enkidu's antics after he helped Gilgamesh kill the Bull, leading to them to kill off Enkidu. On a separate note, the Bull is trying to avoid Hercules since it doesn't want to get captured like the Cretan Bull.
  • Upon hearing of a divine bull ascending, Matador and Don Flamenco were both eager to take it on. But when they found out that the Bull was a gigantic bull, the initial excitement was lost. Matador still wants to fight the Bull one day, while Don Flamenco decided to back off of it.
  • Has no relation with a band sharing the same name.

  • Opposed by: Sam Sheepdog, The Goat (Goat Simulator), The Houyhnhnms, The Good-Aligned Deities of the House of Music
  • Aligned with: The Grand United Alliance of Evil
  • In Ponyland, one day appeared Grogar, a malevolent ancient demoniac ram who had been sealed in a dimension known as the Realm of Darkness for 500 years, along with his dark kingdom of Tambelon. Upon breaking free he quickly began capturing the ponies and other inhabitants of the land with his enslaved army. Once captured, he began concocting a spell to banish all his opposition to the prison he once resided in using his trusty magical bell, source of his power, to do so. But soon enough his army turned against him and helped the ponies find his weakness, a large bell in his castle that when rang, destroyed his personal bell and depowered him, causing his spell to turn on him and returning Grogar and Tambelon back to the Darkness Realm, this time permanently.
  • Upon being ascended, Grogar was quick to gather as much dark magic as possible to regain as much of his lost power, with the help of Melkor, under the condition that Grogar joined the Grand United Alliance of Evil, an action Grogar had no issue with doing, and later had the large bell in his castle destroyed without being rang, thus ensuring that it cannot be used against him again.
  • Right off the bat, it can be said that he hates all the other Equestrian Deities to varying degrees:
    • For her direct part in defeating him, he loathes Megan Williams over everyone else, with him wishing to personally kill the girl in the most painful and sadistic manner he can think of, or subject her to a Fate Worse than Death or And I Must Scream situation as payback for imprisoning him.
    • While he never really met her before, he also has a lot hatred towards Twilight Sparkle, due to her great power and goals, as well as being a pony not too different from the ones who defeated in his home universe. Likewise, he secretly fears the power of her friendship magic that she shares with her friends and loved ones, viewing it as a threat that could defeat even him at his most powerful, mainly going by the example of his G4 self's Bell being depowered and cracked by a large friendship magic beam.
    • Finally, there's Discord, as he isn't too happy about Discord impersonating an alternate version of him and trying to use his image as a way to try and boost Twilight's spirit, though he is rather amused by the part where things went completely south for Discord and ended with him massively screwing up and ruining everything his friends had worked for. Likewise, despite being evil even he questions the effectiveness of Discord's plan, wondering how anyone can stand him after that little stunt.
    • He and the Equestrian villains also don't get along at all due to each wanting to take over the world alone each and him knowing of their intended betrayal of his G4 self, the only reason he doesn't hates them more than the heroes is due to their goals at least being somewhat able to intersect without much conflict at first. That said, he is preparing himself to be rid of the other villains once they served their purpose, lest they declare their allegiance to him and he can make sure they won't try and backstab him the moment he pretends to turns his back on them.
    • Strangely enough, out of all the villains, it seems he can tolerate Tirek to a degree, mainly because Tirek is far more pragmatic and a lot smarter than his fellow villains from the trio. Though it's still not enough to start a full-blown alliance, it is at least enough for Grogar and Tirek to cooperate without much infighting.
  • Is also enemies with various Middle-Earth deities due to being a dark magic overlord not unlike Sauron, and equally cruel to his underlings and enemies alike. On the villains' side, he's declared himself a rival to the Dark Lord, and plans on becoming Melkor's new Dragon to gain further power and influence.
    • He also has developed a small rivalry with another Dark Lord, Ganondorf. Although they'll easily team up against heroes that oppose them both.
  • Sam Sheepdog opposes him greatly following an incident where Ralph Wolf mistook Grogar, who was wandering around their temple while looking for allies, for a normal sheep and tried to capture him in his usual routine with Sam, only for Grogar to almost violently kill Ralph, prompting Sam to save his frenemy and rush out of their temple to save him.
    • In the same boat, the Goat opposes Grogar for giving all sheep and rams a bad name worse than she could ever do. While she'll instill chaos around the Pantheon for her amusement she does not want to enslave others or commit atrocities with the cruel intentions Grogar wants to. That said, she will still mess with the evil ram for her amusement, such as trying to steal his bell and taunt him with it.
  • Daffy Duck is an oddball among his enemies, but its mostly due to Daffy's own experiences with another evil goat (A Nazi one). And Grogar's cruelty and evil is all he needs to consider the Demon Ram one of his many enemies. Grogar himself doesn't care much about the duck's enmity against him, viewing Daffy as insignificant next to him.
  • His cruel hold over those that serve him has made him enemies with various good-aligned royals, who are disgusted by Grogar not only forcing his minions to serve him under various threats; but also forcing said minions to pretend they are happy about assisting him in his conquest and other cruel acts he commits.
  • He is capable of hijacking and entering others' dreams, a factor that has earned him allies in other deities like Nightmare, Wizeman and Freddy Krueger. They are all too happy to spread their cruelty throughout the Pantheon by invading dreams and causing endless nightmares on hapless deities that can't defend themselves.
    • Due to joining the Inducers of Nightmare, he's started off a rather tense partnership with one of its members, Nightmare Moon, who like fellow villainous Equestrian deities does not get along with the ram sorcerer, they are quick to devolve into infighting while cooperating and prefer to stay away from one another most of the time.
  • Hates Star Butterfly and Toffee for their end goals of destroying magic in their world. Especially due to Star succeeding at it. That said, Star and Toffee still won't go and team up against him, despite both returning Grogar's sentiment towards them. He also plots to obtain the secrets to Star's whispering spell, hoping to use it just in case his revenge on the ponies fails, so as to spite them in the scenario that he loses.
  • He's attempted to recruit fellow monster goat, Chirin, into his ranks; arguing to him that by joining his forces he can easily get even stronger than before. But Chirin rejected him, as he refuses to let his lust for strength consume him again and has clarified that he no longer is anything like he was before when training under Wor. Grogar scoffed at his perceived notion of Chirin having no ambition and ever since, both rams are bitter enemies.
  • The Houyhnhnms oppose Grogar due to his desire to conquer the world going against all that their civilization stands for. Grogar himself is nothing but amused at the horses' Holier Than Thou attitude, especially when compared to the ponies' attitude towards other beings, and considers them as beings not worth paying any attention to unless they decide to intrude on his temple.
  • He's also made allies with evil magical beings of the Pantheon, particularly those who control shadows or use dark magic, viewing them as kindred souls in the fight against the good-aligned magical and non-magical deities. Particular standouts are:
    • Maleficent. Who considers Grogar a worthy, powerful and influential ally in her quest to govern all the worlds. Both also love to torture Pete in their spare time, as well as any of their other minions.
    • Merasmus also enjoys spending time with Grogar, as he believes he and the ram can be great allies due to their goals not interferring with each other's and share their magic talents to become more powerful.
  • He once began kidnapping the various princesses of the Pantheon such as Princess Bubblegum, Daisy, Peach, Sofia, Anastasia, and several others hoping to obtain their magic for his own uses. But thanks to various heroes teaming up to rescue them, and the princesses themselves fighting back against him, he was thwarted and forced to let them go. That said, he still plots to obtain their inner magic and power for his spells.
  • His cruelty towards his minions has earned him enemies in Asgore and Toriel, who both won't stand for his cruelty towards his subjects and desire to conquer the world and subjugate everyone else to his will. Likewise, the Crystal Gems also have come to hate Grogar for his tyranny and enslavement of others.
  • He's also allies with Fire Lord Ozai, Napoleon and Grand Moff Tarkin, who all approve of his methods of keeping underlings in check. Tarkin went as far as calling Grogar's methods to be "ingenious" and promised that he'll get in talks with Darth Sidious to ensure that the Galactic Empire and Tambelon will have stronger ties and a more direct cooperation in future operations.
  • In an Alternate Universe, Grogar came head-to-head with kaiju such as Godzilla, Mothra and Mothra Leo to name a few, while it happened to alternate versions of the ones in the Pantheon, it didn't take long for Grogar to grow an enmity against the ascended versions once he arrived at the Pantheon.
  • Saxton Hale has sworn on his Australia-shaped chest hair that he'll beat Grogar to death with his bare fists and mount his head on a wall in his temple to decorate it. On his part, Grogar returns the sentiment of antagonism, hoping to put the human "in his place".
  • His show of origin had a segment that starred Mr. Potato Head. When he met the ascended version he had not much to say about it, viewing it as a weird creature at most. Potato Head and all the gang oppose Grogar on their end, viewing the tyrannical goat as one of the most evil beings they've dealt with due to his similarities in ruling over his kingdom to Lotso's rule over Sunnyside Daycare.
  • Evil as he is, he takes a careful approach to working with deities that are potentially capable of ruining his plans once succeeded, such as Bill Cipher whose Omnicidal Maniac tendencies and Trollish attitude infuriate him.
  • His major weakness being a bell's song when rang made him an unexpected ally in Chernabog, who is also thwarted by a morning bell after a night of torturing and toying with souls of the deceased. Grogar pities Chernabog greatly for being unable to have fun for eternity as he wished he could, and is at least hoping he can set Chernabog free in his own world for him to rule unopposed
  • "Welcome, my little ponies! What a pity you can't stay for long! For within a few short hours: you with the rest of your kind will be banished to the Realm of Darkness!"

    Xerneas 
Xerneas, God of Marvelous Deer (the Life Pokémon, The Tree of Life)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xerneas_art.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A stylized blue X
  • Theme Song: Battle! Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde (shared with the other two Pokémon in that track's title)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Gender: Genderless
  • Ability: Fairy Aura
  • Moveset: Geomancy, Moonblast, Thunderbolt, Psychic
    • Z-Move: Twinkle Tackle
  • Portfolio: Marvelous Deer, Fay Spirits, DNA, Exotic Eye Designs, Granting Eternal Life, an X Motif, Total Party Kills
  • Domains: Life, Deer, Fairies
  • Heralds: Stantler, Deerling, Sawsbuck
  • Followers: The Deer God, the Deer of Shimmerwood, The Great Prince (Bambi's father)
  • Allies: Yveltal, Tinker Bell, Ash Ketchum, Arceus, Pikachu, Fluttershy, Snow White, Bambi, Yuna, Diancie, Ratatoskr, Applebloom (The Cutie Mark Crusaders
  • Enemies: Lysandre, Hexxus, Shinryu, Grima, Frieza, Specimen 8, Zhaitan
  • In a flash of light, one of the oldest trees of the Bestiary suddenly vanished. Xerneas began roaming the Pantheon from then on.
  • Xerneas has been under attack at an alarming frequency by other members of the Pantheon for being able to grant eternal life to mortals. Why so many gods want this power when they themselves are already immortal is a mystery outside of common greed. Perhaps they simply want to avoid death altogether and avoid the need to respawn?
    • Of course, the gods of this pantheon can die, it just isn't permanent, and some respawn faster than others. Perhaps they seek to truly avoid death?
    • Of these gods, Frieza and Voldemort covet Xerneas' immortality the most. Frieza wants a back-up in case his rematch with Goku goes badly, and Voldemort is sick of using horcruxes.
  • When not in any danger, Xerneas is always found among the trees, carrying an air of serenity around it.
  • Is very willing to stand by Arceus in its conflict against Zeedmilleniumon, and has proven a dependable ally.
  • Is implied to have some sort of connection with Serena, on account of "Xerneas" being an anagram of "Serena", plus an "X"; a trait shared with the members of Organization XIII.
  • Is oddly feared by Bahamut and a few other dragons, though Xerneas has shown no hostility toward the good-aligned ones.
  • Has been known to eat Power Herbs, which greatly speeds up its Geomancy. Do not let Xerneas do this if you're not on it's side.
    • Especially during the 4th Super Smash Bros. tournament, where a summoned Xerneas can redirect its Geomancy buffs to the summoner, allowing that summoner to launch his opponents farther with his attacks.
  • Despite not being an Aeon, Xerneas has granted Yuna with the ability to summon it whenever she can.
  • Xerneas is one of the few gods Ratatoskr doesn't actively try to piss off. This may be due to the fact that something about the Deer God reminds him of Yggdrasil. Xerneas is usually kind enough to let the nutty squirrel climb on its horns without complaint.
  • Some believe Xerneas' power to grant eternal life is the reason Ash Ketchum always remains a ten-year-old. So far, neither Xerneas nor Ash have commented on this.
  • Though they have never met, Xerneas detests the idea of turning animals into monsters; something Specimen 8 actively does, to deer nonetheless.
  • One day, Xerneas was followed by an adorable filly with a pink bow on her head, stating that it was "The Great Seedling" who was capable of granting trees that would constantly remain ripened. It didn't help that Xerneas did resemble The Great Seedling and has the capabilities of bringing life wherever it goes. Nonetheless, Xerenas at least let the filly see its powers at work and allows her, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle to visit whenever they want.

Intermediate Gods

    Okkoto-nushi 
Okkoto-nushi, God of Boars (Okkoto)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/okkoto.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A boar head silhouette with four large tusks jutting out to either side.
  • Theme Song: Forest of the Shishi God (shared with Moro)
  • Alignment: True Neutral / Blue-and-Orange Morality
  • Portfolio: Boar god, Proud Warrior Race Guy, Reasonable Authority Figure, blind white eyes, keen sense of smell to compensate, Last Stand, turned into a hate-filled demon, copious amounts of Blood from the Mouth
  • Domains: Boars, Nature, Divinity, War, Pride
  • Heralds: His whole tribe and Nago (a fellow boar god)
  • High Priest: Razorbeast
  • Allies: Moro, San, Tama Hill Tanuki, Amaterasu, Ares, Spring Sprite, Xerneas, Yveltal
  • Enemies: Lady Eboshi, Robert Baratheon, Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, Napoleon, GUAE Trollkaiger, Mr. Burns, Looten Plunder, Hexxus, Lysandre, Firebird
  • Conflicting Opinion: Ashitaka, the other Studio Ghibli Deities, Pumbaa
  • Opposes: House of Hatred
  • Respects: Sanada Yukimura
  • Okkoto is an ancient boar god from the southern islands of Japan. San and her wolf brothers fought alongside him and his army against the inhabitants of Iron Town to protect the forest they were destroying. Okkoto's boar army was slaughtered by imperial soldiers with explosives, and Okkoto himself was left in the verge of death. Okkoto's hatred for the humans ended up consuming him and he became a raving demon covered in blood worms, nearly dragging San along. He was eventually put to rest forever, together with Moro, by the Forest God's merciful touch.
  • Ascended at the same time as Moro in order to help in the latest battle that pitted the Nature Preservers against several members of the House of Commerce and the House of Toxicity. San and Ashitaka cheered when Okkoto and his army made their presence known with a Foe-Tossing Charge.
  • Still has quite a problem with humans in general, but San's trying to help him see there are plenty of worthwhile humans in the Pantheon. San herself may also hate humans, but she doesn't want to see Okkoto succumb to hatred and become a blood worm-covered rampaging demon again. However, every once in a while, one (or more) of Okkoto's soldiers does fall prey to those negative feelings and becomes a problem. Okkoto has given his full permission for such boars to be terminated whenever that happens (including himself should it happen to him again). Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, so it's not so bad, though Okkoto feels ashamed of himself whenever that happens.
    • Given what hatred can do to gods like him, he finds the whole concept of the House of Hatred to be distasteful and does his best to keep himself and his army away from there. This doesn't stop the worst members of that House from seeking them out in a bid to corrupt them and spread chaos throughout the Pantheon. Yuuki Terumi and his Trollkaiger are repeat offenders; Okkoto swears that he'll take them down someday.
  • As far as him learning to like humans goes, he's only willing to give a chance to those recommended by San, which is pretty much just her own allies. Okkoto considers them somewhat interesting but has no special wish to make friends with them himself.
    • Okkoto's been learning about the Sengoku period that succeeded his time and has to admit that there were some very interesting humans in that era. The most impressive to him is Sanada Yukimura, for dying in battle for what he believed in. He's glad that such a rare human is in the Pantheon.
  • Okkoto recalls that he promised Ashitaka he'd kill him the next time he saw him. He did indeed try to fulfill it (without San knowing or he'd never hear the end of it), but being old and blind and Ashitaka being a very good warrior and quite slippery, the lumbering god just couldn't do it. Eventually Moro intervened, said Okkoto was painful to watch and told him to just forget the matter as they all fought for the same things. Okkoto begrudgingly acquiesced.
  • For the most part he just sort of ignores the other Ghibli deities; most of them are children, so he sees them as innocent despite being humans, but he doesn't care much about them. He's accused Totoro of having no dignity for becoming a playmate to two little girls even though he's supposed to be a great forest spirit. Totoro likely doesn't care what Okkoto thinks and just keeps hanging out with Satsuki and Mei.
    • On the other hand, he's okay with the tanuki of Tama Hill since they also suffered from losing their forest to human development. He likes Gonta and his followers the best since, like him, they waged war with the humans until the bitter end, and Okkoto sees them as worthy warriors for it. But he's a bit contemptuous about Shokichi and some others, as he cannot fathom why proud forest animals would prefer to live among humans instead of dying in a blaze of glory.
  • Okkoto has the greatest respect for Amaterasu as the highest Shinto goddess, though he sure wishes she had been around when Iron Town was destroying the forest.
  • Boars are sacred to Ares, the Greek God of war. Ares is happy to know that the one chosen to represent boars in the Pantheon is a ferocious and proud warrior, and wants to get in on the action whenever Okkoto is waging war. Okkoto thinks the Greek god is a bit unhinged, but he doesn't mind his help.
  • Robert Baratheon and Diarmuid Ua Duibhne are two deities whose obituaries would read "death by boar", so they don't exactly take kindly to the giant boar god's presence in the Pantheon. They've occasionally teamed up in hunting expeditions to take their Revenge by Proxy. As far as Okkoto's concerned, they're welcome to try.
  • The Pantheon has a bit of a dearth of swine for Okkoto to interact with. He doesn't really care about Babe. He thinks Napoleon is a traitor of the worst kind for going against his nature, adopting human mannerisms and placing himself as a tyrant above other animals. When meeting Pumbaa, Okkoto thought he'd finally met a pig with tusks, but he's not sure he cares for his lifestyle with that strange rat creature, though he admits Pumbaa can be impressive in a fight for his small size.
  • Just like Moro, he has aligned himself with the nature-protecting Xerneas and the Spring Sprite. He also respects Yveltal as a necessary complement to Xerneas, while opposing the maliciously destructive Firebird and the arrogant Lysandre for being a mere human playing god by trying to control the forces of life and death for his purposes.

Lesser Gods

    Agro 
Agro, Goddess of Tireless Steeds (Aggro, Argro)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agro.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A black silhouette of herself, galloping
  • Theme Song: "Swift Horse"
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Awesome and impossibly resilient horse, Undying Loyalty for Wander, apparently dies but not really
  • Domains: Horses, Hardiness, Loyalty
  • Owner: Wander
  • Allies: Epona, Black Beauty, Spirit, Maximus, Ico and Yorda, Fluttershy, Hazel Levesque, Link
  • Enemies: The Colossi, Gregor Clegane
  • Conflicting Opinion: The Houyhnhnms
  • Agro is the mount of Wander, the young warrior who set out on a quest to defeat the sixteen Colossi in a deal brokered with the deity Dormin to save his charge Mono's life. Agro is an impressive mare, possessing a stout build and standing at two meters tall. She can run at a top speed of about 50 mph non-stop. She is also ridiculously low-maintenance for a horse; she was more than capable of finding sustainment for herself in the barren Forbidden Land without needing Wander to provide for her and never required care of any sort. She was also fearless while facing the Colossi and simply shook off any injury when thrown around by them. Above all, though, she is defined by her loyalty to her rider Wander, who she stuck with throughout nearly his entire journey, up until she fell from a high ravine... which she came back from with only a limp.
  • Originally Wander's Herald and Epona's High Priestess, Wander was beyond relieved to see that his trusty steed was alive and well, given the last Wander saw of her prior to ascending was her falling into the ravine. As such, Agro had a good run of the Pantheon long before the higher-ups found a divine role they decided she was worthy of taking. In honor of her incredible tirelessness and toughness while accompanying Wander on his journey (and also some people feeling very intensely about her), she was awarded with godhood over Automaton Horses. Wander was filled with pride at hearing the news, in one of his few truly joyous moments since ascending.
  • Agro is fully behind (or under, as the case might be) Wander if he wants to go hunting for the Colossi again. Someone decided to ask her (through animal language translators, naturally) what her personal feelings on the Colossi were out of curiosity. For what it's worth, Agro doesn't seem to bear them any ill will and even regards them with some indifference when not on the job. Although, she seems to take on a dimmer view of those she personally had to deal with, most especially Dirge. She has also become none too fond of Celosia and Cenobia after being ambushed by them a couple of times in the Pantheon, due to their very aggressive natures and being unusually quick for Colossi.
  • While Agro is loyal to Wander, she's not averse to going off on her own and enjoy herself when not needed. As Epona's former High Priestess and now stablemate, Agro gets along well with the fiery red mare, even with there being a significant difference in personality between them; Agro is a much more even-tempered horse, with some saying she's like an equine version of a Yamato Nadeshiko. She is also not that fussy about who is allowed to ride her, unlike the more choosy Epona, although Agro will always give priority to Wander when he needs her. One wonders how can two mares with such a Red Oni, Blue Oni dynamic get along, but it works out, somehow. It's probably the fact that they're both mounts to brave and crafty heroes on dangerous adventures, so there's certainly a lot of understanding between the two. There's also a certain amount of rivalry, because while Epona is capable of greater bursts of speed, Agro shows a lot more endurance.
  • Agro has quite a few other stablemates besides Epona. Out of this herd, Black Beauty is the most similar to Agro in terms of temperament, being similarly calm and mild-mannered. Because of this the two seem to enjoy each other's company more than any other horse, considering they can often be seen running pleasantly alongside each other. Some deities suspect Ship Tease. Black Beauty was rather appalled hearing how excessively hands off Wander is with Agro though, thinking Wander to be an abusive and neglectful owner like many who had owned Black Beauty before. Agro doesn't really see the harm though, and considers herself to just be really independent and resourceful. She doesn't necessarily look on down on Black Beauty for "not getting it", though; she realizes she was rather lucky to have her freedom after hearing all about what an awful life Black Beauty led, getting whipped and chained up all the time inside poorly lit stables and made to carry heavier loads than he could bear.
  • The wild stallion Spirit puts his usual derision about tamed horses to rest around Agro, the only horse with whom he does so. This sudden respect could have something to do with her surviving facing giant monstrosities, or maybe Agro just has her way of putting Spirit in his place. Then there's Maximus, who's unfailingly loyal to the royal family and went well beyond what's expected of a horse to accomplish his duty; he and Agro have very high regard for each other as a result.
  • Fluttershy expressed some concern for Agro's well-being after hearing how inadvisably often she is left to her own devices by Wander. Fluttershy often visits her to make sure she is doing alright, sometimes bringing her feed. Agro appreciates the company of the soft-spoken pony who has a way with animals and also seems to maintain a good relationship with the rest of Equestria's ponies, although she doesn't relate to them very strongly since they are more like humans than equines.
  • Still on the topic of horses that act more like humans, there are the Houyhnhnms, which are even more puzzling to Agro, and certainly more unpleasant than the Equestria ponies after they came to her and expressed their contempt for Wander who dared to own a fine horse like her only to mistreat her and force her to confront giant stone monsters (in their opinion). She didn't take kindly to this. While she doesn't understand all that well what the Houyhnhnms are about, hearing some of some of their practices has made her think of them as defiant of nature and she is sure she would not like to become one of them.
  • Hazel Levesque took a liking to her, as she takes a liking to horses in general due to them being the only animals who don't dislike her. It's no different with Agro, who enjoys Hazel's attentions whenever she decides to come spend time at the House of Ungulates. Conversely, there is Gregor Clegane, a monstrous brute who famously beheaded his horse in a fit of bad temper. Agro counts herself lucky not to have come face-to-face with him yet (and also felt her love for Wander reinforced); she learned of him from Hazel, who loathes Gregor, and made sure to warn Agro about him should she ever meet him.
  • If Ico and Yorda's relationship with Wander is shaky and aloof, it is much the opposite where Agro is concerned. The two children have always been amazed watching Wander and Agro from afar, streaking across the fields and pulling tricks, back when she was his Herald. After she ascended and moved to the stables, they were less nervous about approaching her now that Wander isn't near her 24/7. Agro detects a certain similarity between Wander and Ico that she cannot quite make sense of. Perhaps because of that, she is happy to be a playmate to Ico as well as Yorda, being ignorant of the tension between them and her master since they are never all in the same place. It's a frequent sight for the two children to ride on her, with Ico trying to imitate Wander's tricks, not always successfully. Agro is careful with them to ensure they don't get hurt. Wander actually has chanced upon them playing together a couple of times. He lets them be.

    Centaur Man 
Centaur Man, God of Mechanical Horses (DWN.042)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/centaur_man.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His three-horned helmet
  • Theme Music: Centaur Man Stage; alternatively, his Power Fighters theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Mechanical Centaur, Centaur Flash, Centaur Arrow, Polearm, Shield, Spread Shot, The Gambler, Only Quadruped Robot Master
  • Domains: Robots, Horses, Combat, Space
  • Interested in: Emerl
  • Allies: Mega Man, Bright Man, Spirit, Maximus, Diana/Wonder Woman, Tsunade, Larry Daley, Orisa, Chiron
  • Enemies: Dr. Wily, Dr Eggman, Ares, Dio Brando
  • Annoyed by: Whip users like Simon Belmont
  • Centaur Man was originally a robot designed to work as a museum guide on Greece. However, he was modified into combat to enter the First Annual Robot Tournament. However, the whole tournament was a trick by Doctor Wily to capture the world's greatest robot warriors and reprogram them to serve him.
  • Since he was merely reprogrammed by Wily to serve him, he doesn't actually work for him in the Pantheon. Doesn't stop Wily from trying to sway him back to his side.
  • As mentioned, his job before being modified for combat was a tour guide for an old archaeology museum, and when not testing his medal against other robots eager to fight he continues to serve this role in the pantheon. He has helped out Larry Daley with some of the strange happenings in his museum.
  • Seems to like Wonder Woman, given that she is a heroic Amazon and Centaur Man is from Greece. He doesn't much care for Ares given he's a brutal Greek god of war. As per his archeological leanings, Centaur Man is interested in the Lost Technology of Emerl.
  • The reason why he was given this title is because while he is technically a centaur, he is one of few holders of the trope with actual sentience. He seems fond of both Spirit and Maximum due to being magnificent equines, and whenever Wily isn't mind controlling him he hangs out in the same house as them. Sometimes they test who's the faster at races.
  • Due to being a robotic horse, he has a dislike of whips of any kind. As such he isn't a fan of Simon Belmont, but otherwise remains neutral on whip users. He has a fondness for gambling, which soon led him to get into a game of poker with Tsunade. She won, but it was a good game and the two can be spotted together in the casino.
  • Centaur Man's main weapon is Centaur Flash, a special distortion system what allows him to stop time. However, the system takes up a lot of energy to use, meaning that he can only use it for brief moments at a time. Dio Brando claims that his time stop is superior, and Centaur Man isn't fond of him due to his evil nature. Also, Dio's powers have problems dealing with similar time stop powers.
  • The time stop doesn't make him a one-trick pony, to pardon the phrase. In fact, he might be one of most well-armed Robot Masters. He can teleport brief distances while using Centaur Flash, his arm cannon has a Spread Shot projectile and energy arrows, and is also equipped with a shield and a polearm.
  • Isn't the only mechanical centaur in the pantheon, as he learned on meeting Orisa. He finds her youth and heart to be adorable. The flesh and blood centaur, Chiron, was pleased to meet Centaur Man as unless Centaur Man is Brainwashed and Crazy by Dr Wily, the Robot Master is a perfectly civil centaur. That's hard to come by for Chiron.
  • There are rumours that he is actually a woman and has a crush on Knight Man. Nothing solid has come out of this.

    Epona 
Epona, Goddess of Cool Horses
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/epona_tp_model.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: An outline of her head, imposed behind the Crest of Hyrule
  • Theme Songs: Epona's Song, Lon Lon Ranch
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Heroic Horsemanship with Link, Rearing Horse, Cool Horse, Invulnerable Horses, Loyal Animal Companion, Power-Up Mount, Sprint Shoes
  • Domains: Horses, Speed, Mounts
  • Rider: Link
  • Allies: Princess Zelda, Midna, Fi, Skull Kid, Lana, Naofumi's party, Pit, The Farmer, Agro, Maximus, Black Beauty, Spirit, Donkey, Yoshi, Slyvia, Chocobos, Appa, Momo, Naga, and Pabu, Raoh, All good My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic deities, especially the Mane 6, Spike, and Princess Luna and Celestia, Lady Amalthea, Pegasus, Megan Williams, Eliza Thronberry, Hazel Levesque
  • Enemies: Ganondorf, Majora, Zant, Dark Link, Vaati, Ghirahim, Demise, Yuga, Cia, Yhwach
  • Epona, Link’s longtime steed in the fight against evil. Though not alongside all of his incarnations, where Epona is present she is a stalwart and loyal ally and friend to Link.
  • While no one knows exactly how she got there, Epona first arrived in the Pantheon when Link absentmindedly played her song on his Ocarina. As the clear notes rang out, a distinctive whinny could be heard as Epona ran up to Link, overjoyed to see his loyal steed and longtime friend. She currently lives in the House of Ungulates, ready to help her master whenever he calls her with the Ocarina.
  • Midna, having had met Epona personally, was happy to see her back at Link’s side, and the feeling was reciprocated. Fi, though she hadn’t met Epona before, was pleased to do so, remarking,
    "This lifeform bears a strikingly similar aura to the Crimson Loftwing. Its presence and assistance provided to Master Link is appreciated."
  • Zelda, similarly, was happy to see the steed that was responsible for so many of her rescues, especially after her time riding alongside her with her own royal stallion.
  • One deity distinctly not happy to see Epona was the Dark Lord Gandorf himself, especially after she played an instrumental role in the final battle against his Calamity Ganon form. While he has made several attempts to destroy her in the Pantheon, she always seems to emerge unscathed...
  • Still holds a strong hatred for Majora after its cruel treatment of her in Termina (even when this led to her encountering an Expy of her original caretaker). Majora, similarly, despises "that stupid horse of his," and was very upset to see her recognized for anything.
  • Dark Link is the only version of Link she opposes and will never allow to ride her, since she knows very well who her rider is. Dark Link doesn't seem to care however.
  • Epona is courteous to Lana, trusting her greatly since she's Link's friend, but she refuses to allow Cia anywhere near Link due to how obsessed the former is with latter. If Cia tries to get anywhere close to Link, Epona will stop her.
  • She usually only lets Link and whoever's accompanying him ride her, but she will allow others to ride her if Link is okay with it. Raoh is one such example, since he's quite the famous horseman. Raoh treats her with great respect and is honored to ride the horse of a great hero.
    • She, unsurprisingly, is also willing to let Hazel Levesque ride her, since horses are the only animals willing to get close to her. Just like Black Beauty, Epona sympathizes with Hazel's plight and goes out of her way to protect her.
  • Warmed up to Pit quickly, who he had learned a bit of an affinity for horses when he learned to man the Lightning Chariot. Pit was just happy to meet such a legendary figure, and they remain friends.
  • The deities of Equestria are interested in Epona, especially Fluttershy (who is a lover of animals), Spike (who always wanted to be a heroic horseman), Twilight Sparkle (who is honored to meet an ally of the legendary Link), and Rainbow Dash (who is the pinnacle of loyalty). The feeling is mutual on Epona's end, and she is respectful and courteous to them.
  • When no one is riding her, Epona tends to hang out with the other horses or equines in the House of Ungulates. She and Maximus respect each other for their loyalty (Epona to Link, Maximus to the royal family), she and Black Beauty become friends while the latter sees how similar Epona is to his mate, and Epona forms a kinship with Spirit for his unbreakable will despite being a wild horse. Epona is also patient with Donkey's talkativeness, with the latter greatly respecting her and admitting he wished he was still a stallion.
  • Epona gets along well with Yoshi and Slyvia, both of whom are ridable characters but can actually speak. Yoshi befriended and fought alongside Link once, so he's all too willing to befriend Epona. Slyvia is honored to meet a fellow loyal and ridable goddess in the Pantheon. Epona also tends to hang out with Chocobos and Filo, both of whom are non-equine mounts. Epona and Chocobos first greeted each other with curiosity before becoming friends, while Filo wants to challenge Epona to races to prove she's the fastest among them.
    • Epona also befriended Team Avatar's animal companions. Appa makes her think of the Loftwings she heard about from Fi earlier, Naga is the closest she's with due to being a loyal riding animal companion, and she's friendly with both Momo and Pabu.
    • Naofumi and Raphtalia, while they still have Filo to help them travel, still greatly respect Epona and Link and the riders are willing to let the other ride their respective steed when it's necessary.
  • Yhwach is rather infamous for the fact his horse is immune to his spiritual pressure. Epona however states that even if she could survive Yhwach's presence, she would never let him ride her for all the atrocities he's committed.
  • Megan Williams was quick to befriend Epona, who reminded her of her pet pony TJ. Epona in turn is sweet and gentle with Megan, allowing her to ride her if she ever needs to. Link even teaches her the song needed to summon Epona.
  • Eliza Thornberry is so far the only human who can talk to her due to her ability to speak with animals, which surprises Epona. Epona notes she was only able to talk to Link when he was in the form of wolf. Epona is happy to hold conversations with Eliza and talk to her about Link.

    Maximus (Tangled
Maximus, God of White Horses
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maximustangled1.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Corona's Crest
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral —> Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: White horse with leadership cred, extremely persistent in chasing Flynn, dog-like behavior, hyper-competent, capable of taking more abuse than a horse should, working with the Pub Thugs to save Flynn, choosing good over law, approves of Rapunzel/Flynn, Silent Snarker
  • Domains: Equines, Leadership, Tenacity, Justice
  • Allies: Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Disney princesses, Sora, Donald Duck, Goofy, Black Beauty, Agro, Tiffany Aching, Judy Hopps & Nick Wilde, Johnny Appleseed, Applejack, Shining Armor, Jean Valjean, Link, Mario, Yoshi, Zelda, Peach
  • Enemies: Mother Gothel, Master Xehanort, Ryuk, Ganondorf, Bowser, Manny Pardo, evil members of the House of Crime, House of Villains
  • Conflicting Opinion: Inspector Javert, Spirit
  • Evil Counterpart: Fiend White Rider
  • Maximus was the horse of the captain of Corona's royal guard. Very meticulous, he doesn't hesitate in taking over from his human masters if he finds that they're not up to snuff, as demonstrated by the determination with which he chased Flynn for stealing a crown, even after losing his rider. This would lead him to meet the long-lost princess of his kingdom, Rapunzel, and he played an important role in rescuing her from Mother Gothel's clutches. At the end, he was made captain of the guard, and ascended in order to better serve his princess.
  • Beyond his duty to her, Maximus just adores Rapunzel and will do anything to protect her and make her happy, even if that means bending the law sometimes. In fact, Rapunzel is the reason why Maximus can be flexible at all. He has also pledged to protect the other Disney princesses for reminding him of Rapunzel, and after hearing from Sora about the threat that Master Xehanort poses for all princesses.
  • It should come as no surprise that, although they didn't have much to do with each other in the mortal realm, Maximus will not tolerate Mother Gothel coming into the vicinity of his liege. She's the person he chases the most, so he can throw her in jail and make her pay for the crime of kidnapping his princess.
  • Though he is friends with Flynn now (with some vitriol), Maximus still condemns thievery and crime in general and will chase any criminals in the Pantheon as doggedly as he did in the mortal world, but now with an eye for the bigger picture. He wishes Javert would do the same instead of obsessing over someone who already served nineteen years for the measly crime that was stealing a loaf of bread. He tries to make him come around to this point of view whenever their jobs lead to them working together. The effort and his general reasonability makes him respected by Jean Valjean. Maximus also detests Manny Pardo for using his authority as a cover-up to commit murder of both criminals and innocents.
  • Other deities he often works together with include Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde. Maximus has a lot of synergy with the bunny's scrappy, can-do attitude, and Nick Wilde is like Flynn, which he can get used to; they often give each other a hard time in a good-natured way. There's also Shining Armor, with whom he shares the commonality of being captains of the guard, so they'll often talk about their troubles together.
  • Has been trying to convince the House of Defense to make frying pans standard equipment like he did with Corona's royal guard. This has had little success as most members prefer doing their thing. At least the effort scores him points with Tiffany Aching.
  • Is very hostile towards the White Rider because of him representing a darker form that the White Stallion trope can take: Conquest. Maximus is unrelenting but ultimately benevolent, so being confronted with the darker side of the trope he is deified for causes him quite a bit of angst.
  • When Spirit acts up, Maximus will come running and tell him to stop being a danger to everyone. Spirit likes to tease him by saying that Maximus has become such a pet that he enforces humans' laws for them. This often leads to extensive Stern Chases around the Pantheon where the other deities can't believe Maximus and Spirit don't break their legs several times over. They CAN work together well on occasion though, especially when Maximus opts to be more good than lawful.
  • Maximus gets along much better with the more law-abiding Black Beauty. The peaceful black horse tries to be a mediator in Maximus and Spirit's squabbles, not always successfully since the two are both hot-heads.
  • Due to his love for apples, he's a frequent customer of Applejack's and Johnny Appleseed's, and they're more than happy to be of service to such an upstanding horse. Ryuk, jealous that he isn't as favored, sometimes picks fights with Maximus by stealing part of his stash. Maximus has also very chivalrously offered to taste-test any apple that might come Snow White's way.
  • Gets on well with Link due to him being a just hero and his friendship with Epona. It's the same thing with Mario and his mount Yoshi. Seeing that they themselves have princesses to protect, he aids them against Ganondorf and Bowser. Not without some trepidation against the former, due to his fearsome, giant horse.

    Miltank 
Miltank, Goddess of Bovines (The Milk Cow Pokémon, Sailor Moo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/600px_241miltank.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A bottle of Moo Moo Milk
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Gender: Female
  • Ability: Scrappy
  • Moves: Milk Drink, Rollout, Stomp, Attract
  • Portfolio: High HP, High Defense, and High Speed, Friend to All Children, feminine pink, Secret Art: milk that heals, mother of the team, Wake-Up Call Boss under Whitney's command
  • Domains: Cows, Milk, Surprising Strength and Speed
  • Herald: Whitney
  • Followers: Bat-Cow, Gene, the Wild West COW Boys Of Moo Mesa, Arizona, Grunties
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Misty, Brock, N Harmonia, Ruby Rose, Baine Bloodhoof, Applejack (a farmer who knows her way around cows), Audino (a fellow support Pokémon), Elite Tauren Chieftain, many child deities, especially in the Children sub-house, with the exception of the nasty ones
  • Enemies: Team Rocket, Ghetsis Harmonia, Lysandre, those cruel to animals, antagonists to farms
  • Opposed by: Lactose-intolerant mortals and deities, trainers challenging Whitney's gym, Cofagrigus
  • Opposes: Edward Elric
  • Miltank's milk is packed with nutrition, making it the ultimate beverage for the sick or weary, a very tasty drink for many, and can heal Pokémon.
  • It is said that kids who drink Miltank's milk grow up to become hearty, healthy adults. Ruby Rose fully sponsors this for some reason, and so does Kaguya. She's since become a valuable asset in the House of Food's kitchens.
  • A lot of scientists have been wondering how Miltank developed the body parts needed for milk production as she, like all Pokémon, came from eggs.
  • As a result of the Pokémon Partnership program, there have been arguments as to whom she should be partners with; Baine Bloodhoof or Kaguya Nanbu. The two have taken turns in appealing for the Milk Cow Pokémon's partnership. While Miltank herself sees some bovine commonality with Baine, she also sees Kaguya as another appealing choice with her outfit colors (more perverted individuals muttered something about cows being associated with large breasts). Eventually, she decided on Kaguya.
  • For those who look down on the Normal-type for its mundanity, Miltank is a reminder that they should underestimate such types at their own peril. This Miltank, having taken on the same moveset and ability as the dreaded [[one owned by Whitney, can bring the hurt with the increasing-damage attack known as Rollout, the STABnote  called Stomp that makes opponents flinch, Attract to leave male Pokémon vulnerable, and Milk Drink to patch herself up. On top of a beefy defense (*ba-dum-tsh*) and surprising speed, she also has the Scrappy ability, which means she can also land hits on ghosts, which her type are normally incapable of even touching.
  • Was absolutely insulted when she heard that Edward Elric called her milk "cow's piss", and plans to give him a piece of her mind when he least expects it.
  • Elite Tauren Chieftain got along with Miltank as well, not only because of bovine kinship, but also because he really loves the color pink.
  • The Mob was once again thrilled to have a representative of a Pokémon they allied with in the Pantheon. The Miltank in question being a fan of the Sailor Moon gods and nicknaming herself after the titular character. Also stated to have a crush on a Venusaur known as Tux.

    Spirit 
Spirit Who Could Not Be Broken, God of Wild Horses (Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron, Mustang)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tmp741338539316215810.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: An eagle
  • Theme Song: "Get Off My Back" (though technically he has many songs)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Unrideable horse, inspiration to captive horses, very courageous and very stubborn, shrugging off damage that should realistically kill or severely injure him, violating quite a few rules of horses, competent and talented herd leader, unbreakable spirit
  • Domains: Equines, Freedom, The West, Xenofiction, Narration
  • Herald: Rain (his mate)
  • Allies: Most good DreamWorks deities, especially Moses and Jack Frost, Pocahontas, Jake Sully, Neytiri, Applejack, Fluttershy, Caesar, Amalthea, Naruto Uzumaki, Pegasus Seiya, Link, Agro
  • Enemies: Miles Quaritch, Mr. Burns, Monokuma and Junko Enoshima, Gregor Clegane
  • Conflicting Opinion: Black Beauty, Maximus, Bagheera
  • Rivals: The Man With No Name, Louise Leroi
  • This horse comes from a time when the West was still truly wild and untarnished by humans. He lived in the wide open prairies where he led his herd and bravely protected it from danger, until he was caught by humans who proceeded to try to tame him. However, he was far too wild, and far too determined to remain free. His staunch refusal to submit eventually won him back his freedom, earned him the name Spirit Who Could Not Be Broken, and got him a position in the Pantheon to represent all the horses who refuse to become mounts.
  • Has a hard time seeing eye to eye with Black Beauty because of how obliging and submissive the black horse is towards humans, even those who abuse him. Spirit finds this a pity and a waste, not least because he has discovered Black Beauty is a very impressive horse who can match him in running. Black Beauty will simply say that he was raised to be good and to do his duty; he's free to horse around as much as he likes when not on duty, anyway.
  • Occasionally joins Applejack in her apple-bucking for fun. This can sometimes inadvertently turn into bucking competitions to see who can get the most apples. Fluttershy also cares a lot about him after hearing how badly he was treated by nasty humans.
  • Because of their similar experiences with humans, he is often seen in deep conversation with the unicorn Amalthea. They're also sometimes seen racing through fields together. Some deities call Ship Tease despite the fact that Spirit is Happily Mated and Amalthea's love is a prince.
  • His refusal to submit to abusive humans and leading other horses to freedom got him the approval of Caesar. It helps that they both understand that not all humans are awful and some can even be caring.
  • His stubborness and unwillingness to stay down gives him a lot of affinity with Naruto and Pegasus Seiya, who find his... spirit, yes, admirable. Spirit thinks they're really impressive too. For, you know, humans. He also finds it rather wise of Seiya to draw on the power of a legendary horse.
  • One of his favorite humans in the Pantheon is Pocahontas because of how in tune with nature she is, unlike most others. It's worth noting that the only human he really got along with in the mortal realms was also a Native American, so that may have something to do with it. He also likes Neytiri for similar reasons, and Jake Sully for choosing to side with her people against humans who'd exploit their habitat for their own gain.
  • Has a rivalry with The Man With No Name over the title "Spirit of the West", which mustangs are said to be by some. While Spirit previously would take or leave such a title, now he is rather interested in taking away said title from a cowboy. The Man With No Name has yet to respond to his challenges.
    • Frenchie King, however, is more than happy to take them up. Not because of the Spirit of the West title, but simply to test her skills. And also because Maria kept egging her on. Spirit was dubious at first, but had to admit after one session that she was a tough one.
  • As expected, his status as a Hope Bringer earned him the scorn and death wishes of Junko Enoshima, who can't tolerate yet another creature who interferes with her fetish for despair.
  • Hates Mr. Burns due to his money-grubbing ways causing harm to animals and polluting habitats, and how he completely disregards the consequences. Mr. Burns has learned to at least be wary of him ever since hearing what Spirit managed to do to two train engines. He hates Quaritch for similar reasons, since the colonel invades and plunders territories while not caring about what happens to the rightful inhabitants.
  • Interestingly Gregor Clegane actually likes his attitude (as his favorite type of horse is bad-tempered stallions) and thinks he'd make a great mount. It says something when a horse like Spirit, who doesn't tolerate being ridden even by his friends except under very special circumstances, claims that Gregor is one of the last people he'd ever allow on his back, given Gregor's treatment of horses.
  • Spirit's alright with aiding the Hero of Hyrule once in a while by letting him ride him, mostly because of his friendship with the temperamental Epona. Spirit will still sometimes throw Link off (in a way that doesn't cause him harm) when he's had enough, though.
  • Upon meeting other DreamWorks deities, he found he got along particularly well with Moses and Jack Frost. Moses compared Spirit inspiring captive horses to revolt against a slave-driving foreign enemy to his own quest to free his people from the Pharaoh's yoke. Spirit is slightly embarrassed by this, since his main goal was to go home and it was incidental that he made horses feel that way. His bond with Jack Frost is due to similar personalities, given they both have a mischievous streak.

Demigods

    Bambi 
Bambi, God of Innocent Deer
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bambi_30.png
As a yearling 
As an adult 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A pair of antlers; alternatively, a butterfly
  • Theme Music: Love is a Song
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Coming-of-Age Story, Bambification, Beware the Nice Ones, Cowardly Lion, Woodland Creature
  • Domains: Deer, Growth
  • Heralds: The Great Prince, Faline, Flower, Thumper
  • Allies: Simba, Xerneas, Babar, Sora, Fluttershy, The Gang of Seven, N, David the Gnome
  • Enemies: Judge Doom, Hexxus, Gaston, Napoleon, bullies
  • Foil to: Chirin
  • Bambi had quite a life for a deer (be it a white-tailed deer or a roe deer). He lived in a forest with his friends and lost his mother to hunters at a young age, leading The Great Prince of the Forest to take care of him. As Bambi grew up, he faced additional challenges such as a bully of a deer and it ultimately culminated with him and his friends having to survive a hunting session led by Man. Bambi has very much been regarded as cute and innocent when he was a fawn, something that remained consistent even as he grew up and learned greater responsibilities.
  • It was a quiet morning in the woodlands where Bambi and his friends resided...at least, it was quiet until some commotion could be seen in the distance. Bambi wasn't entirely sure what it was at first, but he believed that Man might be planning something that isn't good for Bambi and his woodland friends. A few moments later, it turned out that some more creatures that Bambi and co. haven't seen yet had arrived where Bambi is at, telling the deer that they don't mean harm and that they wanted to tell him about an unusual place where they can rest. While Bambi was uncertain about this "Pantheon" he was being told about (especially given that there's certain kinds of beings in the Pantheon that worry him), he went along with it and a short while later, he ended up being a part of that place, with his woodland home still intact.
  • A lot of people who have encountered Bambi noticed that he's generally young and cute. He has been seen as a young adult on occasion, but those who saw him like that noticed there's still a bit of charm to him even if he has a more dignified air to him.
  • While he's had to contend with humans in the past every now and then, being part of the Pantheon meant that humans are going to come up on a much more frequent basis, causing him a bit of concern at first due to how many more dangerous humans reside. Bambi would later learn that there are some humans who not only have a good heart, but are friendly towards animals and are even understanding of them. It surprised him to learn that some humans in the Pantheon were capable of talking to animals, but was willing to listen to what a few humans had to say.
    • A chance encounter with N ended up being the catalyst for Bambi learning to open up towards humans and that not all of them are terrible beings. N has a fondness for Pokemon despite being used by Team Plasma to take away said creatures from others, with a Pokemon trainer eventually helping N see the error of his ways and open up to others. N told Bambi that learning from others will be beneficial in the long run and that there's other animal lovers that can help out.
  • The Great Prince of the Forest was someone that Bambi had spent time with after his mother's death and was determined to prove himself to him. While looking to see if there are other deer around in the Pantheon, Bambi came across Xerneas, who was noted to be far more majestic of a deer than what Bambi had been used to. Xerneas' ability to grant immortality more than impressed Bambi, who wasn't used to seeing something like this (though he has long since accepted his mother's death) and while the Pokemon is a bit distant towards Bambi, it's still friendly towards him and Bambi hangs out with Xerneas on occasion.
  • Both Simba and Bambi are able to relate to each other's stories and the struggles that came with it. Like Bambi, Simba lost an important parental figure in the midst of chaos, though what Simba witnessed was a deliberate murder rather than simply being told that his parent was gone that was Bambi's case. As both Simba and Bambi grew older, they learned to mature and take on a role dedicated to ensuring the stability of the habitat they're from while keeping the friends they made during their childhood. Simba subsequently set up a meeting between them and Babar, an elephant that lost his mother to a hunter and later became the leader of a city of elephants. Babar understood what Bambi went through very well and has acknowledged that the deer is continuing to grow in becoming someone who will effectively lead a forest and its inhabitants.
  • David the Gnome became one of Bambi's most trusted friends in the Pantheon due to the former's knowledge of nature and helpfulness towards animals whenever they're in trouble. David has been noted to come to Bambi's aid whenever the deer is in trouble and tends to repair the damages caused by Bambi's foes. Like Bambi, David is highly aware of the extent of the damages that humans cause to natural environments.
  • It's obvious that Man was responsible for the death of Bambi's mother, but a few deities have made some possible guesses as to the exact identity of the person that did the deed. Gaston is a very popular guess given that he's a hunter and has boasted about his accomplishments frequently, with Bambi being disgusted with Gaston's selfish demeanor. Some rumors have gone around saying that it was Judge Doom who was responsible for shooting Bambi's mother. While Bambi rightfully believed that Judge Doom was a bad person, he didn't realize just how bad Doom was until he learned about Doom's goals and how he intended to accomplish them.
    • Generally speaking, Bambi still has a problem with hunters, especially those that are willing to do it just for personal gain. Hunters with far more advanced technology than what Bambi was used to became problematic when Hunter J trespassed on Bambi's woodlands as part of a mission to find a mythical beast that was apparently resting there. Most of Bambi's friends were already in trouble by the time J got to Bambi, though a timely intervention by N and his Pokemon was able to get J out of Bambi's home.
  • He is understanding about the damages being done to nature thanks to seeing a bunch of junk near a stream of water one day. That would end up being the least of such troubles for him as he would later learn about a spirit of pollution known as Hexxus, who takes open delight in seeing nature being destroyed and would be a major threat to the deer and his friends should Hexxus be unleashed. The most that Bambi can do if it were to happen is to get him and his friends to a place where Hexxus can't get to them.
  • Bullies are among those who Bambi has a strong dislike towards, mainly due to several bad experiences with Ronno, another deer that belittled Bambi when given the chance and even tried to take Faline for himself. Some humans that Bambi has seen from afar during his time in the Pantheon showed many of Ronno's traits and Bambi has claimed that some of those bullies he's seen might be even worse than Ronno.
  • Napoleon and his hatred towards humans brought him to learn about Bambi and how the latter's problems with humans stemmed from having his mother shot by hunters. Hoping to find someone to corrupt to his side, Napoleon approached Bambi and decided to try and win him over by saying that animals can live in harmony without humans getting in the way. Bambi was a bit wary at first and things were getting concerning when he was close to accepting Napoleon's offer, at least until Fluttershy came by to get Bambi back to his senses much to Napoleon's irritation. Even if Bambi knew that humans aren't perfect, there have been some who have helped him open up to them and that Napoleon was just trying to use him for something really bad. After Bambi left with Fluttershy to thank him for getting him out of trouble, Napoleon's hatred for Bambi grew and he was willing to find a way to get that deer on his side or even eliminate him if all else fails.
  • Bambi ended up finding another animal that went through an ordeal similar to his own. That animal happened to be Chirin, who lost his mother to a wolf and was devastated by it. Unlike Bambi who learned to cope with his loss, Chirin ended up trying to seek revenge to the point of becoming something he wasn't meant to be and alienating himself from his former home. Bambi felt disheartened after learning about Chirin's story, but was willing to try to get Chirin to open up towards others even if the latter's appearance as a ram is unnerving.

    Black Beauty 
Black Beauty, God of Magnificent Equine Poses (Darkie, Black Auster, Jack, Black Jack, Blackie, Old Crony)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blackbeautydocskt.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: Himself, rearing
  • Theme Song: The main theme of the '94 film
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Nice gentlemanly black horse, often depicted rearing, endures much suffering, but well-cared for in his retirement, sometimes loving a chestnut mare (who dies), mostly a normal horse with the odd ability of philosophizing, believing in God though he's an animal
  • Domains: Equines, Animal Welfare, Stock Poses, Rule of Cool, Narration, Xenofiction
  • High Priest: Tornado
  • Allies: N, Disney princesses, Eddard Stark, Remus Lupin, Asuka Langley Soryu/Shikinami, Shana, Stella Vermillion, Sylvia, Fluttershy, Agro, Epona, Maximus
  • Opposes: Cruella De Vil, Mr. Burns, Ghetsis Harmonia, Gregor Clegane, Napoleon, alcoholics and greedy people
  • On good terms with: Zorro
  • Conflicting Opinion: Spirit
  • Black Beauty is a horse from Victorian England who had a hard mortal life: having passed through the hands of many owners, he had both masters who treated him with dignity and others who saw him as nothing more than an unfeeling tool for labour. The account of his life served to abolish several cruel practices towards horses; with this fact in mind, the Main House deemed him worthy of deification.
  • Being a sweet-tempered, obedient horse, he doesn't mind if other deities wish to ride him; it's what he was brought up to do. Just don't even think of whipping him or mistreating him in any way; he won't do much about it except bear with it, but fellow steeds Epona and Sylvia will wipe the floor with you, and they'll probably convince the entire House of Beasts to do the same.
  • Although the image of him rearing is well-known, he actually dislikes doing it when someone is riding him. This is because he was trained by his master and taught by his mother not to engage in such behavior while on the job, and he doesn't want to bring shame to them by being seen as a horse that was poorly brought-up.
  • Responds well to Ned Stark because he reminds him of the man who trained him to become a fine horse, and Remus Lupin because he resembles one of his kindest owners.
  • He likes all of the Disney princesses because of their kindness to animals. He especially likes Cinderella and Belle for being kind to their horse friends.
  • Has taken an interest in Asuka, Stella and Shana. Their red manes and prickly tempers bring to his mind the memory of poor Ginger who was even more abused than him, and who he may or may not have been in love with. The three redheads think that his large pool of patience for abuse makes him as much of a useless doormat as their love interests... but they're still among the people who regularly visit him to feed him sugar cubes, always saying something about how they just happened to be passing through.
  • Chose Zorro's horse Tornado for his High Priest due to him being an iconic rearing horse as well. This pleased Zorro greatly. They don't have much to do with each other otherwise, though, Black Beauty being too inexperienced in swashbuckling adventuring to be of help to Don Diego.
  • He's so accepting that he wishes harm on no one, so he has no real enemies. That doesn't mean there aren't deities whose behavior he disapproves of. He thinks Cruella De Vil and Mr. Burns are vile for killing innocent animals to satisfy their vanity, Ghetsis is a horrible man for abusing his son and only pretending to care about Pokémon rights, and he was completely shocked when he heard about how Gregor Clegane beheaded a horse for throwing him off despite having chosen him for his bad temper.
    • Napoleon is almost certainly the deity that most tries his good nature, considering how Napoleon betrayed all animals by adopting the customs of humans, and became as slave-driving as the worst of them, even getting a horse who trusted him with all his heart put down. It's unsurprising that Beauty finds him completely revolting.
  • Is vehemently against the vices of alcohol and greed because he has seen the harm they do to people and horses. One of his handlers once got so drunk that he didn't notice Beauty had a loose horseshoe, and he permanently injured his knees as a result (accounts differ on whether the handler died or was just wounded). Regarding greed, he knows from experience that it drives humans to exhaust animals beyond their limits for the sake of putting a few more coins in their purses.
  • His tale made Fluttershy cry for him when she heard it. Since then he has been a frequent guest at her temple, with Fluttershy putting in a special amount of effort to make sure he's comfortable. They often have conversations about the measures that can be taken to stop animal cruelty once and for all. It's not unusual for N to join in these discussions as well.

    Donkey 
Donkey, God of Second-Rate Equines ("Dense Irritating Miniature Beast of Burden")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/donkey.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His face
  • Theme Music: A cover of I'm a Believer
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: A Donkey named "Donkey", The Lancer, Nice Guy, Talking Animal, Motor Mouth, Deuteragonist, Friendless Background, The Pollyanna, Large Ham, Plucky Comic Relief, waffles
  • Domains: Donkeys, Sidekicks
  • Heralds: Dragon & the Dronkeys (His wife and children)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: Merlin
  • Odd Friendship: Eeyore, Mushu
  • Since Shrek's world has largely been defined as a parody of fairy tales, it would only make sense that the hero's steed is something that wouldn't be considered a steed by normal standards. The obviously-named Donkey is exactly that, being rather frail compared to a typical stallion that a number of other fairy-tale heroes use. Donkey is also rather talkative, but in spite of those quirks, he has an optimistic attitude and has remained loyal to Shrek since their first meeting.
    • At one point, Donkey actually transformed into an actual white stallion thanks to a potion that he, Shrek (who was turned into a human due to that potion), and Puss in Boots found. Unsurprisingly, it was only temporary and Donkey turned back into a donkey and stayed that way after the potion's effects wore off.
  • One bizarre thing about him is that he has a dragon (named Dragon appropriately enough) for his wife, but what can be considered the strangest thing about him is that their kids are a mix of donkeys and dragons, referred to as Dronkeys. Even though many are still wondering as to why or how that is even possible to begin with, Donkey has been hanging out with Skitty and Wailord since the two Pokémon have been used to the issue of great size difference in breeding.
  • Pinkie Pie, having learned that there was a donkey in the Pantheon, believed that Cranky Doodle Donkey had ascended and decided to look for him. While she didn't find him, she was very happy to see that this donkey was quite as energetic as she is, even though Donkey is not on the same level of zippiness that Pinkie Pie is. The two are often seen talking to each other, with Donkey occasionally helping out with her parties.
  • Tigger was able to find an opportunity to meet up with Donkey, partly since this donkey was more energetic than Eeyore was (whom Tigger is already good friends with). Through Tigger, Donkey got to meet with Eeyore and has made a handful of visits with Tigger's glum companion to try and at least get him to feel better.
  • Donkey managed to make good friends with a number of other steeds in the Pantheon. In particular, he gets along great with Sylvia since the two of them have had less-than-favorable pasts (Sylvia being a Bounty Hunter; Donkey being bullied by others, having his previous owner treat him badly and almost being sold out) before meeting their respective companions and being loyal to them.
  • Fa Mulan once heard a voice from a distance and believed that it was her animal sidekick Mushu. When Mulan got to the source, she found out that the source was a completely different animal sidekick, though one that also talked quite a bit.
    • Donkey did find Mushu while strolling through the Pantheon and accidentally stepping on him. Donkey was happy to meet a new friend, especially one with a similar voice to his own. He wasn't fazed when Mushu warned him that his "real" size would scare the equine to death — Donkey is already married to a large dragon.
  • Having been used to the dragon from his world, Donkey decided to learn about other dragons when he heard there were dragons in the pantheon. He quickly learned that some of them are nowhere near as friendly as his mate and has been avoiding them because of that.
  • Evidently, as an actor for a film franchise, he visited Las Vegas once and even had a stunt double with him. Even though most don't believe that Donkey is selfish, some think that his fame made him act like that during the aforementioned instance.
  • Likes waffles and even named one of his Dronkeys after that food. There are some who have been trying to warn him that waffles left out in the middle of nowhere are suspicious and could lead to trouble if Donkey took the bait.
  • He doesn't like Merlin, because one time — when the wizard teleported him, Shrek, Puss in Boots, and Prince Arthur back to Far Far Away — he and Puss switched bodies (they were holding hands during the spell). While in Puss's body, he had difficulty walking on two legs, among other things Puss did. Merlin eventually used his magic to return Puss and Donkey back to their respective bodies...except for their tails. That side-effect eventually wore off, but since then, Donkey hasn't trusted any of Merlin's magic.
  • Asides from Shrek, he's also a friend with Barry B Benson as the bee can sympathize with some of the hardships he faced for being a donkey. Plus like him, Donkey's in an Interspecies Romance. He's helped him to fight off Lord Farquaad due to his and Shrek's friendship.

Quasideities

    Babe 
Babe, God of Pigs (Pig, The Sheep-Pig, The Gallant Pig, a Large White)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BabePigMovie1.JPG
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: The phrase "That'll do, pig."
  • Theme Song: If I Had Words (Mice version)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: All-Loving Hero, A Pig named Pig, Friend to All Living Things, Heartwarming Orphan, Adopted by a Sheepdog, Cute Pig, Stayed Young-Looking in the Movies
  • Domains: Pig, Adoption
  • Followers:Wilbur, Gordy, Waddles
  • Allies: The Farmer, Fluttershy, Jake the Dog, Clifford, Krypto, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ampharos, Max Rockatansky
  • Enemies: Napoleon, Pudge, Wolf O'Donnell, evil cat deities
  • A piglet bought by Mr. Hoggett with little interest in him besides some meat. Eventually, Babe proves his worth by winning the sheepherding competition when Hoggett's dogs were unable to participate in the contest.
  • He arrived in the Pantheon after he was chosen to be a representative of pigs. Resting in a barn that serves as his temple, he found a home other than the Hoggett's farm.
  • Nobody actually gave him a real name since his mother called all of her babies "Babe" and the farm went with it. Even his other name, Pig, was given because Mr. Hoggett wasn't interested in him at first. Hence, people decided to officially name him "Babe".
  • He dislikes the idea of being eaten by people, but he managed to avert this fate by becoming a sheep-pig, herding sheep when called for. Granted, he basically asks them to move, but whatever works. He is rather friendly to the sheep and, as a result, managed to befriend Ampharos, a sheep-like Pokémon.
    • He also knows the secret password for sheep, so that unfamiliar sheep could trust him. "Baa-ram-ewe. Baa-ram-ewe. To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true. Sheep be true. Baa-ram-ewe."
  • Though he is happy to find a bunch of friendly dogs in the Pantheon — this makes sense because his new family were a pack of sheepdogs — he is aware that sheep dislike dogs because they are like wolves to them. He learned why they call them that as a bunch of wild dogs attacked Hoggett's sheep herd and one of them killed Maa.
  • He directly opposes Napoleon for giving pigs a bad name, and for claiming that human are evil while doing evil deeds himself. The communist pig sees him not as a threat, but as a naive little one who has no idea what is going on.
  • Babe is horrified to find that there is at least one butcher in the Pantheon, and believes that he'll cut him up and serve him on a plate. Fortunately, Pudge doesn't seem interested in slaughtering a little piglet. Then again, he somehow got fresh meat from a rock monster, skeletons, plague bearers and balls of light, so it might not matter.
    • In any case, Babe has found an unusual protector: Mad Max, who felt some sort of connection to the pig and saves Babe from whatever danger he finds in the Pantheon.
  • The Nostalgia Critic pointed out how his follower Gordy appeared in live form a few months earlier than him, though Babe's adventures are much more interesting than his. While Babe isn't quite sure what the Critic is talking about, he has admitted to enjoying the "Pig Power" music video.
  • He doesn't trust evil cat deities, because there was one living on his farm who was very spiteful of him and told him the truth about humans eating pigs.
  • "That'll do pig, that'll do."

    Kuzco 
Kuzco, God of Llamas (Emperor Kuzco, The Sovereign Lord of the Nation, The Hippest Cat in Creation, Demon Llama, Llama Face)

As a llama
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: His crown and gown
  • Theme Song: Perfect World
  • Alignment: True Neutral with Neutral Good tendencies (formerly Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Very self-centered, The Emperor of the Incas, Royal Brat, Transformed into a llama, Prideful Humiliation, The Caligula, Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist, "no touchy", Becoming a much better and responsible leader, Very show-offy and stylish
  • Allies: Naveen, Beast, Sully
  • Enemies: Yzma, Lion, Catwoman, Kars, Dr. Facilier, Scar
  • Opposes: Brightwing, Ratatoskr, Makoto Nanaya, Squirrel Girl, Couvert Eschenbach Pastillage
  • Afraid of: Eugene Gallardo, Simba, Aslan, Mufasa
  • Opposed by: Some members of the House of Love
  • Kuzco was a selfish emperor until he was transformed into a llama by his former advisor Yzma. When Kronk tried to dispose of him, he somehow got into a cart driven by a man named Pacha and had to return home to change himself back. With help from Pacha, he was able to turn back into a human and learn some life lessons about how not to be selfish.
    • Even after his adventure, he still had some work, but credit where it's due, he is certainly trying to improve himself. He even broke the fourth wall at one point and told his narrator self to shut it when the former realized that his selfishness drove off the only friend he had at that point. By the time he was officially the Emperor once more, he had become a much better person while finishing school.
  • Jimmy Neutron knew that his friend, Carl Wheezer, would be excited by Kuzco's llama form, seeing as he loves llamas. Of course, he also knows that if Carl had been ascended and tried to hug Kuzco, he'd probably get an earful of snark for his troubles, if nothing more.
  • Kuzco was transformed into a llama via a magic potion, and for him, it was an unpleasant experience (despite gaining friends and learning important lessons during this time). When he found out that there are people in the pantheon who can transform others, he wasn't happy; none of the transformations he had already experienced were helpful. At the very least, he got used to being a llama for being stuck as one for days.
    • During one Giftmas, Kuzco turned himself into a llama to help Papa Santos when one of his reindeer was frozen by Yzma and he wanted to get off of his naughty list. While some of the multiple Santas in the Pantheon didn't like how spoiled Kuzco was in the past, they agree that he is certainly improving his behavior.
  • Kuzco befriended Sully, despite the latter being a monster. This is because Sully's kindness and his voice remind him of Pacha.
  • Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny show respect for the Emperor; they say they don't want him to summon giant guinea pigs to attack them. Kuzco doesn't seem to know what they're talking about, and he probably doesn't care.
  • Doesn’t like Catwoman since her voice sometimes reminds him of Yzma.
  • He hangs out with both Naveen and the Beast since, like Kuzco, they were once self-absorbed royals who were transformed into different creatures and changed back into humans after learning to be better people.
  • Some of the members of the House of Love oppose him the way that Kuzco treated his potential brides. ...Some, but not all, thanks to his relationship with Malina.
  • He was once a follower of Gilgamesh, but he has since rebelled against him.
  • Due to his bad experience with Bucky the Squirrel, he is a bit unkempt around squirrels and squirrel-like people and creatures, since they seem to have the potential to cause trouble for him. Not helping matters is the fact that Kars can turn his hand into a murderous squirrel, which scares the hell out of the young emperor.
  • Ever since he was chased by jaguars when he was llama, he is very scared of — or at least uneasy around — many of the large wild cats in the Pantheon.
  • A lot of the members of the Pantheon began wondering how Kuzco was spoiled to begin with, and those that dug a bit were not happy with what they found. It turns out that Yzma more-or-less raised Kuzco to be a Puppet King, and that a lot of his selfish traits could be tied back to Yzma herself (''especially'' after they caught a glimpse of how things would be if she were empress.}
    • The reason this was disturbing was because of the implication that Yzma offed Kuzco's parents in order to try and raise Kuzco in the aforementioned way. Some deities then figured Yzma being fired was some form of retribution for her actions. No one knows if Kuzco is aware that she murdered his parents, and no one wants to say anything on the subject.
