  • Opposed by: Every other death god, heroic darkness users
  • Feared by: Voldemort and those with Mortality Phobia
  • Ah Puch is the Mayan god of death and darkness. Deep in the afterlife of Xibala, in the ninth Hell Ah Puch makes corpses and the death his playthings. He has every interest in filling the vacancy of his Hell, expanding his army and causing general dread. The only way to avoid Ah Puch's claim is to pretend that his servants got you first, by wailing loudly, moaning in agony, or just overall screaming.
  • The more malevolent Oda Nobunaga held Obviously Evil, but Ah Puch was considered as he also had Demon King Nobunaga. Not that there's any lost love, as Ah Puch likes how malevolent he is and his status as being a demon king and they can cause so much trouble together. As for why? Demonic bone mask, corpse-like body, glowing red eyes, gleeful sadism and tortured dead are extraordinarily malevolent.
  • While many death gods have been vilified for their occupation, Ah Puch is one death god who even in his original myth was portrayed as malevolent and the Mayans hated and feared him. He's a less Omnicidal Maniac equivalent of Apophis. Ah Puch can relate to their shared position as the dark god everyone hates, but considers the monstrous serpent to be competition as it would rather devour the souls that he wishes to torment.
  • The majority of death gods distant themselves from him, at best. Various lords of death take umbridge at how he torments the dead, devastates the living and is generally a nightmarish god. He considers friendly reapers to be "pansies", and has been seen directly hijacking Charon's boat to steal the souls away to the hells he rules over.
  • There are a couple of being involved with death that like him. The Nightbringer brought the fear of death by mind-raping ancient life simply because he felt like it, so he likes how overly sadistic a death god Ah Puch is, and the two work to make death and what lies beyond to surpass any Fate Worse than Death in horror. The Kid Icarus Hades likes to mess with mortals, so he enjoyed Ah Puch's sadism. The classical Hades would rather Ah Puch just keep his distance from him.
  • Given the Final Destination Death can be pretty damn sadistic, it likes some of Ah Puch's tricks but otherwise doesn't care much for him. Nekron, as cold-hearted a reaper as any, has suggested he could help the horrific god of decay by killing more, so more souls end up filling the Nine Hells. It's not like Nekron cares all that much on what happens to souls after death, he just wants the physical world to be quiet and lifeless. Of course, Ah Puch's sadism makes him a hard partner to work with, and Puch might just decide not to be an Omnicidal Maniac since if more people are born, there are more souls to potentially torment later down the line.
  • Wishes to have total dominion over corpses to make them his playthings. Because of this, he competes with every single necromancer, though he often admires their craft. This puts him against the undead. It also puts him against Karthus, who hates how he abuses the dead. The Deathsinger believes that as a death god, he should show much more compassion to the deceased.
  • Has a lot of owl symbolism, which interested the Grand Duke of Owls. As a god of darkness as well, Ah Puch helped his cause, but the Grand Duke still finds him too intense. This earned him the enmity of Chanticleer and Decidueye. Ah Puch is interested in the latter, since Decidueye is a Ghost Pokemon. What kind of a ghost is debatable.
  • Melkor liked to see a truly malevolent and sadistic god of death and darkness come about. After all, Melkor made people scared of death in Arda. Another evil darkness entity, Chernabog, finds Ah Puch to be very amusing. He too is want to play, degrade and warp those in his hands.
  • Voldemort considers Ah Puch to be the perfect embodiment of why death is so horrible. As he doesn't care about anyone else's death or anyone, really, nobody cares what he thinks. Of course, everyone else who fears death is petrified by Ah Puch. Fortunately, death in the pantheon amounts to a respawn, which enrages Ah Puch as he can't hold onto to anyone for long.
  • Likes the sadism of the Brothers Death in how they made SCP-1440 suffer for beating them in a game. He wants to see them arrives to advice more "creative" means of making him suffer, and likes what destruction 1440 can bring. He also likes the devastating rampages and decay that SCP-106 brings. Ah Puch has contempt for those who escape the afterlife as they could escape his hells, such as Patsy Walker.
  • Likes the torments found in Tartarus, but thinks he can make the Nine Hells better in torment. The Emperor of the Kingdom Dolorous, also at the bottom of a nine-layered underworld, found his torments amusing given the pain he tries to spread and frustration within the Inferno. The Satan of South Park called party foul and disagrees with his Hell, given he only torments the truly evil and his damnation is A Hell of a Time. Ah Puch thinks he's wasting the opportunity that comes from all non-Mormons going to Hell in the South Park universe.
  • Ah Puch once fought against Ben, Gwen and Max Tennyson in one episode of Ben 10 where he's guarding the Sword of Ekchuah. He's angry at seeing them again, and this time, it will not be about guarding the sword; it'll be about settling the score

    Airy 
Airy, Goddess of Adorable Villains (Demolisher of World-Bounds)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-bd_airy_6306.png
Larval Form 
Pupal Form 
Final Form 
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: The numbers on her wings appearing in a circle, counting from 5 to 1 clockwise.
  • Theme Song: Wicked Thing, Wicked Battle and Wicked Flight
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, Omnicidal Maniac, Cute Fairies, Small, chatty menu creatures, Insectoid True Forms, Complete Monster
  • Domains: Manipulation, Boundaries, Appearance, Crystals
  • Allies: Lord Ouroboros, Nui Harime, The Four Gods of Chaos, Satan, Number 96: Black Mist
  • Opposed by: Makoto Yuki, the Incubators, good cute Goddesses everywhere
  • Enemies: The Warriors of Light,Gertrud Barkhorn, Donald Duck
  • Emerged from a Great Chasm that appeared within the Pantheon. Airy was delighted to still be alive, and she made no secret of her plans to resurrect her master Lord Ouroborus... and win back His favor after failing Him back in Luxendarc. To everyone's horror, she managed to tear open a hole in spacetime wide enough to let a past version of Ouroboros into the Pantheon: immortality intact and all.
  • She pretty much earned the ire of many cute beings. For the longest time, the term 'cute' would be more referred for endearment and heroism, whereas evil ones are supposed to be those who are sexy. Airy threw that out of the window, and revels in the evilness while she's being cute. Even if the good sexy ones benefit that they no longer get thrown with the stigma of 'because you're sexy, you must be evil', they still are disgusted with Airy.
  • Has set her eye on the boundary held in place by Makoto Yuki, hoping to pierce it and unleash Nyx in the meantime. Unfortunately for her, Zeus has made sure that Airy gets nowhere near Makoto to do something like that.
  • Despite her apparent similarities to the Incubators (a cute, seemingly innocent little creature that appears to the female lead in her moment of need to guide her out of seemingly good intentions only to later be revealed to be a Big Bad manipulating the naive main characters, and also has to deal with one of the protagonists who happens to be from another world and catches on to their evil plot, which involves using the power the main characters have painstakingly collected), Airy is less than fond of them. Who cares about holding the universe together! All is fodder for His Malevolence!
  • Has thrown her lot in with the Four Gods of Chaos, and has grown particularly fond of Tzeench.
  • Ika Musume and Sharuru admire Airy's skill at using her appearance to fool people into thinking she's not a threat. However, they are appalled by the sheer depth of the fairy's depravity.
  • Has started working with Satan, offering him power now that Ouroboros is revived. To that end, Satan has dropped his plans to destroy the Pantheon with the Leviathan: Airy has a more productive fate in mind for it.
  • Is proud about how she knows how to cast the powerful Zettaflare spell. Then she learned how Donald Duck used it to OHKO Terra-Xehanort and has now keeping an eye on him since.

    Aku 
Aku, The God Made of Evil (The Shogun of Sorrow, The Shapeshifting Master of Darkness, The Master of Masters, The Deliverer of Darkness, Ikra, The Hermit)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aku_6878.jpg
  • Greater God (possible Overdeity in his original form)
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Evil Is Hammy, Dark Is Evil, Made of Evil, World Conquering, Silly Villainy, Killing Heroes, GREAT FLAMING EYEBROWS
  • Domains: Darkness, Evil, Shapeshifting
  • Heralds: Demongo
  • Allies: The Ginyu Force, B.B. Hood, Hades, Most evil cartoon gods in the pantheon, Most demons in the pantheon, Gul'dan
  • Enemies: Samurai Jack, Most Cartoon Network gods in the pantheon, Uncle Iroh, Odin, Ra
  • Rivals: The Lich
  • Ascended to the pantheon by the fact that he, unlike most other evil gods, actually succeeded in his goals.
    • Along with that, through branching crossovers, some gods have found out that Aku pretty much killed most of the Cartoon Network gods.
  • He considers The Lich to be his rival, mostly due to the fact that The Lich also killed the dinosaurs. Besides that, The Lich is the exact opposite of Aku in terms of personality. The Lich, meanwhile, is more annoyed by him than anything else, due to his hamminess, as well as his attempts to Mind Rape Aku simply leaving the Shogun of Sorrow more confused than anything else.
  • Absolutely terrifies Iroh, due to sounding exactly like him.
  • Both The Ginyu Force and Hades like him, due to being just as hammy as all of them.
  • Due to one of his stories, he's actually made a good alliance with B.B. Hood.
  • Despite being a destructive villain, Aku never passes the line of trying to kill a child. This has made him, to his dismay, a major target of ridicule from other evil gods. Fortunately for him, all Aku has to do to shut them up is to point out that, unlike them, he actually succeeded in taking over his universe.
  • He has hired most of the bounty hunters in the pantheon to kill Jack.
  • He actually had a far stronger form, which had to be taken down by three gods to be defeated. While they have not all been ascended yet, he has plans to kill Odin.
    • He was NOT pleased to learn that Ra had ascended as well.
  • Of late, Aku has been locked in his temple, not even venturing out when Melkor calls meetings. Although Aku claims that it's because he's turned over a new leaf to just enjoy the success he had, the various alliances finally figured out what was going on when Trollkaiger got a tip from Varys and released a damning video on a private conversation he had with himself.
    • The meaner inclined Gods laughed in amusement at Aku's cowardice and frustration. Melkor made killing Jack a new priority to give Aku a lift. The more naive gods sent emissaries to try and get Aku to see that being good would bring him peace of mind. But in the end, Aku barricaded his temple doors even more, saying he'll come out once he figures out a way to slaughter the samurai once and for all and finally get peace of mind.
  • Apparently, a viral video of him saying "extra thick" is circulating around the Internet. He's baffled on why everyone finds his pizza order funny, even more so when it's NOT the Trollkaiger who did it.
  • Then... the unthinkable, unimaginable happened. Aku lost. A fragment of himself given life in the form of Ashi sent Jack back to the past, where he crushed Aku for good. And as such, via The Butterfly Effect, his Bad Future never came to be. There was a great gasp from among all the gods, and then a cheer of triumph swelled from the forces of good. Samurai Jack had finally completed his quest.
    • But then a sinister laugh rose from the distance. And Melkor held up a slithering black goop in a vial he was holding. Much like his origin, a small fragment of the darkness Aku was born from had been preserved by Melkor so that Aku's evil would never permanently die. And as such, his new priority is to bring Aku back, though recreating him has proven... difficult.

    Kaldr 
Kaldr, Unholy Embodiment of Frozen Evil (Ancient Apparition)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/10838326_1580417588838949_1122699395_n.jpg

    Mundus 
Mundus, God of Large Villains (Master Mundus, The Darkness Mundus, The Demon Emperor, The Devil King, The Prince Of Darkness, Pluto, "Captain Blue", Dark Emperor King Mundus)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mundusart.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Three Glowing Red Orbs
  • Theme Song: Mundus, The Legendary Battle
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: His Favorite Power, Large and in Charge, Likes to invoke angelic Imagery, His Ordinary Form, What his true form may be, The Satan of His Universe, His other favorite power, What his statue form looks like
  • Domains: Light, Hell, Control, Largeness, Fire
  • Allies: Satan, The Beast, Father Balder, Jack of Blades, Nightmare, The Kurgan, Fortinbras, Allant, Corypheus
  • Teeth Clenched Teamwork: Dormammu
  • Enemies: Dante, Vergil, Lady, Kat, Trish, Nero, Gabriel Belmont, Mondo Zappa, Bayonetta, Gene, Lucifer, YHVH, Ghost Rider, Viewtiful Joe, Dante Alighieri, The Maiden in Black
  • He is The Emperor of The Demon World in Dante's universe and as such is one of the more powerful beings in that universe, only being able to be defeated by the powers of Sparda but seemingly never killed.
  • He often appears as either a large angelic statue or three glowing red orbs to his allies and enemies, but will reveal his true form when he is forced to battle.
  • No, Kyle Ryder is NOT an acceptable incarnation or substitute. A suitable King of Hell enforces his will through true power, without need to score political clout in a human guise. As such, he is getting irritated and confused by The House of Commerce claiming that he is trying to control the Pantheon through debt, as he believes that such an act is petty and insignificant to his plans.
    • Though he has a large dislike for his alternate universe self he finds that he enjoys the "Me, A God" monologue from that Mundus.
  • He was the reason that Vergil was turned into Nelo Angelo. Vergil has since tried to gain revenge for that act, even beating the hell out of him thanks to an unexpected surge of power when the ambitious man in blue first ascended to the Pantheon. Because of this, he is one of the few beings in the Pantheon that will get Dante and Vergil to work together.
    "Again I must face a Sparda. Strange fate, isn't it?"
  • Despite his angelic appearance, he is not an Angel — a point he is trying to make abundantly clear in his battles with Bayonetta.
  • Has found a similar-minded partnership with Satan though they both make it clear that they will betray each other when their plans achieve success and they will see who the true ruler of Hell is after they work together to take the Great Will's Throne.
  • Though they work together, he dislikes the claims of Dormammu being much more powerful then him.
    • He also laughs off Ghost Rider's claim of being able to take on "Demons like him".
  • He's also formed a partnership with Father Balder, leading some to try and claim that there is some connection between him and Jubileus, though he has so far given no comment.
  • Has a large orange blob form when his angelic statue form breaks down. The SCP Foundation is currently investigating if this form has any relation with SCP-999.
  • Is currently trying to manipulate others that have lost loved ones, as Mundus claims that he can recreate the ones they lost.
    "If you need them, I create them, as many as you want. Just like I created Trish."
  • Has occasionally sent a demonic horde after both another Dante and a certain wax-eyed maiden with soul powers. So far his attempts at attacking either have been unsuccessful.

    SpaceGodzilla 
SpaceGodzilla, God of Spiky Villains (AstroGodzilla, CrystalGodzilla)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spacegodzilla_0.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A sihoulette of himself
  • Theme Music: SpaceGodzilla's Theme: The Descent of the God of Destruction; SpaceGodzilla Insanity; His theme from Godzilla: Unleashed or Godzilla Generations: Maximum Impact
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Genius Bruiser, Flying Brick, Animalistic Abomination, Aliens are Bastards, Evil Twin, Spikes of Villainy, Lightning Bruiser, Power Crystals
  • Domains: Spikes, Space, Clones
  • Followers: Ashnard, Genocide, Baron Ünderbheit, Legato Bluesummers
  • Allies: King Ghidorah, Gigan, Hedorah, Crystal Man, Boros, Dark Samus
  • Enemies: Godzilla, Anguirus, Baragon, Diancie, Rodan, Mothra Leo, Tyranitar, Korra, Raleigh Becket & Mako Mori, Simon the Digger, Rei Ayanami, Shadow the Hedgehog, Pearl, Garnet, Amethyst
  • Unknown Connection: Biollante
  • If the first thing that comes to mind when seeing this monster is that he's a Godzilla from space, the assumption isn't wrong, but the actual explanation is not that simple. What is more or less accepted is that after some cells of Godzilla managed to end up in outer space (whether that was caused by the aftermath of Godzilla's battle against Biollante or Mothra trying to get rid of a meteor is still debated), they fell into a black hole and from a white hole emerged Spacegodzilla, a spiky alien monstrosity (and he's really spiky when flying) with plenty of power and some intelligence to go with it. Those spiky shoulder crystals are where he gets his power (though if they get destroyed, he becomes weaker) and he can surround an area with more crystal spikes to increase that power.
  • Crystal Man immediately became interested in Spacegodzilla's crystals upon finding out and decided to take a closer look at them. The Robot Master was in for a surprise when he found out that the kaiju used the crystals not as a primary weapon, but as a power source. The two have managed to strike an alliance, if only to see if there is a way for Spacegodzilla to generate his powers from crystals that don't belong to him.
    • Diancie didn't take the news well that Crystal Man managed to find another villainous deity with control over crystals (and one that is very powerful) and has taken measures to ensure that she can survive a possible confrontation with the kaiju. She's rather worried about the project between Crystal Man and Spacegodzilla regarding the crystal power sources.
  • As a creature with differing genetic material (one of the material includes that of Godzilla himself, obviously), Spacegodzilla became the subject of great interest for Mesogog. That dinosaur scientist is impressed by Spacegodzilla's strength and is hoping that by using the kaiju's genetic material, he'll be able to create a more powerful army.
  • Many clones who are on the side of good really don't like Spacegodzilla simply because he attacked the original Godzilla for no justifiable reason and creating chaos and misery as a result. There is greater animosity coming from Rei Ayanami and Shadow the Hedgehog due to the two of them having confronted different threats from outer space before.
    • One clone that is on somewhat reasonable terms with the space kaiju is Dark Samus, even if there's not much going on between the two aside from their shared desire for conquest. The idea of a Phazon-infected Spacegodzilla due to her influence is frightening, but the fact that she and Spacegodzilla are only in an alliance of convenience at the moment has led to countermeasures by others in case their alliance gets stronger.
  • He really hates Simon the Digger given that the latter's preference for mecha with drills on them bring to mind the mecha M.O.G.U.E.R.A., of which the kaiju has fought against before. Considering that "spiral grenade missiles" played a role in Spacegodzilla's defeat and that Simon the Digger and his crew utilize something called Spiral Power (which likely isn't the same thing as the missiles, but still), the kaiju quickly saw that Digger as a threat.
  • Given that his apparent goal is to Take Over the World, the kaiju has managed to find a few other aliens with that same mindset as him. Boros is quite impressed with Spacegodzilla's power and is hoping to use that to further his goals of conquest. Spacegodzilla is more than willing to go along with it if it means defeating Godzilla for good (and Boros is very interested in seeing what the regular Godzilla is capable of).
    • Spacegodzilla actually had a history of working with other aliens before. He was part of a group known as the Vortaak, but turned on them and decided to do the world-conquering thing by himself. It's not clear at the moment as to whether or not he'll turn against any potential alien allies to fit his own needs, including who would turn against who first if Spacegodzilla and Lord Brevon were working for each other. That said, the two aren't working with each other and have fought each other a few times to get closer to their individual goals.
  • The Crystal Gems once confused Spacegodzilla for a corrupted Crystal Gem. After learning about just how destructive and malicious he can be, the Crystal Gems decided that they have to put a stop to his chaos.
  • Even though Mothra Leo never really met Spacegodzilla before, the butterfly is very disturbed with the possibility that the original Mothra played a role (albeit unintentionally) in bringing this space monster to life. Reportedly, Biollante dislikes Spacegodzilla, regardless of the different possibility that she was a factor in his existence.
  • A few deities noticed that Spacegodzilla sort of resembles a powered-up form the real Godzilla took on at some point in time prior to battling this monster. Whether Godzilla will take on that form to battle against Spacegodzilla again (or some other equally powerful threat) is unknown.

Intermediate Gods

    Black Shadow 
Black Shadow, God of Dark Villain Outfits (The Emperor of Brutality)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9ada1c99a2c51b3e371da3afa2cd0ea3.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Black Bull (his racing ship)
  • Theme Song: Theme of Black Shadow (F-Zero GX)
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Domains: Evil, Blackness, Shadows, Speed, Vehicles
  • Portfolio: Obvious Villain, Stereotypical Bad Guy Name, Black-Wearing Evildoer (Although the Black Looks More Like Purple), Infamously Cheating A.I.
  • Herald: Blood Falcon.
  • Allies: Several members of the Council of Shadows, Bowser, Ridley, Dark Link, Megatron, Master Xehanort.
  • Enemies: Captain Falcon, Viewtiful Joe, Batman, most of Batman's Rogues Gallery, Ryu, Ghost Rider, all good-aligned Kamen Riders, most Autobots, several gamer deities and mortals.
  • Rivals: Beelzemon, Darth Vader, The Green Biker Dude.
  • Respects: Norio Wakamoto.
  • It's not exactly clear how Black Shadow managed to ascend into the Pantheon, as he didn't appear to have been observed or under consideration for any seat. It's believed that the Council of Shadows may have pulled a few strings to allow it to happen, but the reasons behind that are still unknown. At the very least, he appears to know Ganondorf well.
    • He wants to kill Captain Falcon in front of several viewers, which is why he eagerly awaits for the next divine racing tournament in order to execute his evil plan.
  • Many deities recognize him as the guy who got Falcon Punched by Captain Falcon along with the whole galaxy. He claims that this event only happened in an alternate timeline, and that it wasn't even the Falcon Punch that ultimately defeated him, but no one seems to listen.
    • In any case, he respects this specific version of him, in particular his voice.
    • Due to both of them having the same name and voice, Black Shadow suspects that Ryu might be related to Ryu Suzaku, possibly even the same person.
  • Black Shadow didn't take much time to take over the racetracks of the Pantheon after ascending. He's a tough one to catch up, as his machine, the Black Bull, is known for being one of the fastest and strongest machines in F-Zero.
    • To make things worse, Black Shadow can be a scarily competent pilot, sometimes a bit too competent, with many suspecting that he might be cheating somehow (which wouldn't be surprising). Black Shadow credits his skill to the "Creators" of his universe, whatever those may be.
    • His skill has actually become infamous among mortals who attempt to challenge him, especially after leading one of them to a legendary rant.
    • He heard about Darth Vader's past as a pod-racing champion and thus challenged the Sith Lord to a race at the House of Travel in order to test the skill of one of the Pantheon's most famous deities. As they fiercely raced against each other, an "accident" that was definitely not intentional on Black Shadow's part caused both vehicles to crash, ending the race with no winner. Black Shadow admits that Vader is not a completely worthless racer and plans to crush him next time.
  • Black Shadow has shown interest in working with the Decepticons, believing that both him and Megatron can benefit from technology that the other possesses.
  • Sometimes confused with Batman due to looking a lot like him, which probably explains why he keeps getting attacked by The Joker and Co every now and then.
    • Batman himself has kept a close eye on Black Shadow, believing that the mysterious Black Shadow Group led by him might bring trouble to the Pantheon. The Dark Knight is already prepared for him though, having attached a Tracking Device to the Black Bull in order to monitor Black Shadow's movements and upgrading his Batmobile so that it may keep up with the Black Bull's power.
  • He is also sometimes confused with Satan, which is not strange at all as the Pantheon already has many Satans and Black Shadow wouldn't look out of place among them.
    • Not that Black Shadow doesn't have any ties with the literal underworld, as he is subservient to his universe's own version of Satan, Deathborn. This alone has put him on the sights of the Ghost Rider, one of the few able to keep up with him.
  • Suspected to have a connection with Master Xehanort due to his Heartless-like outfit and shared magical ability to create Evil Knockoffs of other heroes.
  • "WATASHI WA SHINEN. SHINENZUUU!" - Black Shadow about his undying self and dreams, circa 2003
    • "FARUCON PANCHI!" - Captain Falcon about the above sentence, circa 2003
  • Also has a seat in Colored Outfits.

    Brand 
Brand, God of Burning Evil (The Burning Vengeance, Kegan Rodhe)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brand_originalloading.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Fire, and lots of it
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Evil Is Burning Hot, Loves To Burn Everything Around Him, Kill It with Fire Until There's Nothing Less To Kill, Incendiary Exponent, Wreathed in Flames, A Fire Elemental Possessing A Man, Glass Cannon, Doesn't Burn His Clothes, Did We Mention Fire?
  • Domains: Fire, Destruction, Burning
  • Followers: Zancrow, Heat Wave, Flame King
  • Allies: The Grand United Alliance of Destruction, Ragnaros the Fire Lord, Aerys II Targaryen, Firefly, The Firebird, Deathwing, Majin Buu, Dr Weil, Dark Danny
  • Rivals: Anivia, The Night's King
  • Enemies: Everyone else in Runeterra, the Houses of Plants, Water and Ice, Swampert, Finn and Jake, Jaime Lannister, Weezing, Sunset Shimmer, The Spring Sprite, Alexstrasza, Barroth, Danny Fenton, Kratos
  • In a faraway place known as Lokfar, there was a seafaring marauder known as Kegan Rodhe. Trekking through the arctic wastes, he would discover a mysterious ice cage imprisoning a dancing column of flame, which drew him like a moth to a flame. This would be the last thing Kegan Rodhe remembers; he would wake up transformed, becoming the vessel to the Burning Vengeance, Brand. Now he moves from Runeterra to the Trope Pantheon, as the living embodiment of all that is evil about fire.
  • He's the complete Foil to the cryophoenix Anivia, who's both ice-related and good aligned. He's glad Ryze hasn't ascended as of yet.Brand isn't sharing the spot light. He tried but has given up on trying to find a proper partner due to being too unstable for any long-term partnership.
  • He's rather interested with the Night's King. Like him he Was Once a Man(well, physically in Brand's case) before being transformed into extremes of temperature. The Night's King considers him a major threat, since with the wights Fire Keeps It Dead and Brand has a whole lot of it with him.
  • Brand has one desire, and one desire only; to burn everything around him until there's nothing left to burn. Naturally, this puts him at odds with every single god of Runeterra, and much of the pantheon. He happily joined the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, serving as one of their pyromancers. So far, Brand is one of only two omnicidal maniacs in Runeterra; the other being Nocturne, who considers life offensive and disgusting.
  • You'd think that the Grox and Brand would get along due to his desire to burn the world up, Groxiforming worlds. The Grox certainly thought so, but Brand was just frustrated because he couldn't burn them.
  • Believes that Perses is a fellow "brother of the burning" like him, as they look very much alike. As such, he's angered at Kratos for killing Perses.
  • In his desire to burn, Brand has sought out other fire entities to help him. He's become really good friends with the Firebird do to being ruinous entities, along with Deathwing as they're both insane pyrophiles. The good-aligned fire beings like Alexstrasza regard him as an abomination, however.
  • Pyromaniacs need not to be fire elementals for Brand to get along with, any psychotic enough human can be his friend as well. Brand was impressed by the lust for fire that Garfield Lynns had, and is happy to let him play in his temple. King Aerys is just as welcoming to Brand, allowing him to use wildfire. The Burning Vengeance wishes to experiment with wildfire and explore its capabilities, much to the terror of everyone.
  • Currently speculated that the entity who possessed Kegan Rodhe and became Brand is a scion of Ragnaros the Firelord. He does seem to recognize the Fire Elemental as a superior, at least.
  • Finn and Jake have faced off against fire beings before in the form of the Flame Kingdom, including the evil Flame King. As such, they're on-guard when it comes to Brand. As is Jaime Lannister, who considers Brand to be the Mad King's wet dream.
  • Nobody in the House of Water and Ice likes him, or the House of Plants; even Billy could see why. Weezing doesn't like Brand either, due to being extremly flammable. He considers the likes of Barroth incredibly frustrating since he can put out even his strongest flames. Even more frustrating is Swampert, due to being a Water and Ground type and thus incredibly effective at putting fires out.
  • Though he and Majin Buu are friends, they can sometimes argue about which method of destruction was better. Buu argued that blowing shit up is fun, but Brand believed that he should savor the moment by lighting stuff on fire. He was interested in the creativity behind his Dangerous Liquid Bomb and turning people to candy, but still believes burning is more thrilling.
  • Dr Weil was intrigued by the likes of Brand. They managed to make a deal; so long as his temple and dominions aren't touched, he'll help Brand with his "global burning". To his twisted mind, it means everyone will be forced to be ruled by him, for his torment.
  • Asides from his normal form, Brand has a number of skins available. He's capable of turning into a well-dressed zombie and a fiery spirit, which he takes on whenever he visits the Undead or Ghosts sub-houses. He considers Danny Fenton to be a major nuisance due to his ice powers, so will team up with Dark Danny to stop him.
  • As strange as it seems, Brand has a Cryocore form. No-one's quite sure how this works, but the reason for this get-up is probably to try and sneak into the House of Water and Ice. Sometimes he also dresses up in vandal clothes as Vandal Brand, or puts on gas mark gear as Apocalyptic Brand.
  • No-one's quite sure how his clothes stay intact, despite being Wreathed in Flames.

  • Opposes: The House of Family, other members of the House of Royalty, the House of Wind & Air, Ragyo Kiryuin
  • Ganishka is the emperor of the Kushan Empire, a militaristic empire with exotic war elephants, supernatural creatures and human sorcerers. He is also an apostle, disposing of his humanity and engages in numerous evil acts. Unlike most apostles Gainshka opposes the Godhand, refusing to bow to anyone. No matter how horrible the means, he plans to conquer the world and bring an end to the Godhand's reign, particularly Griffith/Femto.
  • Became an Apostle upon sacrificing his son, who he rightfully feared would overthrow him. Ganishka has been consumed by paranoia due to his family being Royally Screwed Up, starting with his mother trying to poison him so his brother survived. This paranoia leads him to have disdain for both family and royalty...except for Aerys Targaryen. They share a lot in common, being mad, paranoid rulers who's paranoia involves their own family. And they are both interested in each other's "craft".
  • In a world like Berserk, it is almost impressive he stands out as exceptionally depraved, and for good reason-his war campaign involves mass executions, ethnic cleansing, using conquered populations as human shields or cannon fodder, feeding women to crocodiles and other gruesome human experimentation. Unsurprisingly it has led to him being very unpopular to most gods in the House of War, including some evil ones. However there is a god as depraved as him who likes what he's doing-Gregor Clegane. Ganishka admires his overtly violent nature when it comes to war time, and has offered him an honorary position in his army.
  • Fond of using his military dark magic to transform animals into even more fearsome beasts, and as mentioned likes to execute people with crocodiles. He desired to capture Sobek, in part to fill this depraved curiosity and in part to feel secure about making a god submit to him for he as emperor refuses to submit to anybody. Didn't work at all, surviving only because of his mist-based Apostle form. His plan to experiment with Babar and Ganesha for his war elephants brought even less fruit.
  • One of his most horrific acts is the creation of the Daka. Captive pregnant women are lowered into a sort of artificial Behelit, corrupting the fetuses and bursting out of their mothers. It's as horrific as it sounds, and the Daka produced are ferocious, demonic if not particularly bright fighters. He is interested in the Facehugger and Xenomorph, believing that he can hybridize the process with the artificial Behelit to create an ultimate Apostle-Xenomorph hybrid that can serve him. Given the nature of the Xenomorph, it'll almost certainly backfire on him.
  • Openly defiant of all true deities, having stated that as with the Godhand he is the emperor, and does not bow to the will of any god. His rebellion only served Griffith's purpose, given their vast powers over causality. He takes personal offense at YHVH and Merged Zamasu for their desire to enforce the will of God, albeit "God" usually refers to themselves in that case. Zamasu takes particular umbridge towards Ganishka for representing the depravity he perceives in all mortals, which was only exacerbated upon further research into the nature of Apostles. Much like Guts' attitude towards Ganishka and Griffith, no-one who's not a total misanthrope or as big a monster as both wants to help either oppose the other.
  • In his rebellion against the gods, he seeks those who also seek to rebel against the gods thinking they may understand him. He tried to get Kratos' help, due to slaughtering much of the Greek pantheon. Like Guts he told him to shove it due to how much of a monster he is. Ganishka turned his attention to Iroque instead. Not because he thinks for a nanosecond he can recruit her, but because he wants to weaponize the Indigo light to "poison" the Godhand by the light re-awakening their hearts and guilt corrupting them. He sent his men after it, but the presence of the light caused them to be plagued with guilt. Progress of trying to weaponize it for his cause is at a standstill, and he dare not get any closer.
  • Interestingly despite being as depraved as him, he is not fond of Ragyo Kiryuin. Part of it is due to him thinking she is subservient to the original Life Fiber, when a true ruler should be subservient to no-one. Part of it is personal issues with his own mother, given Ragyo is a textbook abusive mother.
  • Using magic to rule over the Kushans, thanks in part to his right-hand man and sorceror Daiba. He is always welcome to the aid of evil sorcerers like Babidi and Gul'dan that might help his war effort. He is also open to the sadistic SCP-953 due to how useful her trickery is, and she's very happy to have her sadism indulged. He opposes Lord Tirek due to how he drains magic. Because of his horrific experiments, Rosemary Woodhouse and Edward Elric despise him.
  • One of the most powerful Apostles, his apostle form can act as a proxy. In this form he is a mass of fog and mist, making him intangible. He is still vulnerable to dissipating in strong winds, however. J. Geil recognized this as something similar to his mother's Stand, Justice, and Ganishka recognized his Stand was pretty useful for his war effort. As with SCP-953, he has joined to better indulge his sadism. The artificial Behelit allowed him to take a god-like form known as Shiva, but at the cost of his sanity. Upon his death it became the base for the World-Spiral Tree and the fusion of the Astral and Physical planes.

Eneru, God of Psycho Electros (Enel, God)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eneru_anime.png
  • Intermediate God normally, Greater God with his ark Maxim
  • Symbol: The drums in his back, with lightning going between them
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Psycho Electro, Nigh Invulnerable, A God I Am, The Sociopath, Averting The Sorting Algorithm of Evil, Weaksauce Weakness, Kryptonite Factor, Where I Was Born and Razed, Person of Mass Destruction, Shock and Awe, Thunder Drum
  • Domains: Lightning/Electricity, Haki, Tyranny, Evil
  • Allies: His four "priests"
  • Enemies: Luffy, The rest of the Straw Hats, Akainu, Boa Hancock, Thor, Cole MacGrath, Fate Testarossa-Harlaown, The Magical Girl Sisterhood.
  • Ironically, Sakazuki/Akainu dislikes him greatly despite both opposing Luffy, viewing him as a threat to the world due to his destruction of Skypiea.
  • A good deal of the Pantheon was disturbed when he ascended; however, they still have Luffy as a countermeasure for him, and he's gotten far stronger since he last fought Eneru, so nobody's that concerned.
    • It has been brought to the attention of the Pantheon that back when Fate Testarossa-Harlaown was the Goddess of Lightning, he used to hold that position, but for some reason all stories involving his being such had been covered up. The Question is, of course, investigating the matter, but Eneru doesn't much care for that anymore now that he has a new position for himself. He's still miffed that his position had been stolen and nobody had known about it and has since sworn vengeance on Fate.
  • The Technology house has been attempting to study the "Spaceys" that he awakened on the moon.
  • After his ascension, was (though he doesn't know it) dubbed as the Pantheon's backup power supply.
  • Due to his Haki and Shock and Awe powers allowing him to strike from miles away at will, he is being watched carefully by the GUAG.
  • Upon discovering that, while he was a god in the Pantheon, he was not the top god, attempted to confront Dream to steal his position. Dream imagined a small pool around Eneru, rendering him powerless, and sent him back to his temple. Eneru has not tried since, but it is rumored he is planning with some of the other evil deities to steal Dream's position.
  • Has been trying since he ascended to add some of the female deities to his harem of women. One of his more well-known (due to its failure) attempts was when he tried to kidnap Ysera, who promptly sent him into a coma. All of his other attempts have been thwarted by the Magical Girl Sisterhood and Luffy. And even he knows better than to try Mithra.
  • Also present in the House of Electricity.
  • Some groups have taken a greater interest in his powers when in one of the video games (Gigant Battle 2), his electric Logia abilities were able to counter the seemingly-unstoppable light Logia powers of Admiral Kizaru.

  • High Priest: Genma Oda Nobunaga
  • Allies: Dr. Evil, Shao Kahn, Cell, M. Bison, Fortinbras
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Toyotomi Hideyoshi
  • Enemies:
  • Originally, he was a rather competent, if brutal, warlord of Japan. However, the increasing ruthlessness and brutality he committed has elevated him to a level of cruelty that he became known as a literal Demon. Nobunaga eventually made it no secret and embraced the status, AND the cackling evilness that comes with it, and thus the legend of the evil, ruthless Demon King of the Sixth Heaven was born and continued to haunt people to these days.
  • Nobunaga competed the first title with Skeletor, but after learning that Skeletor's archenemy He-Man has yet to receive deification, Skeletor lost interest, enabling Nobunaga to seize the throne. His second title came from Yagyu Munenori, who received a lot of bastardizations that he was amongst The Fallen, but recently got released to the mortal world. Thus, it's official, Nobunaga is the complete holder of the title.
  • He once held his sister Oichi in his grip and made her his plaything, sending her into battles despite her pleads not to. Needless to say, when the Gods of goodness actually rescued her from his clutches, he was mightily pissed that someone DARED to take away the plaything of The Demon King of the Sixth Heaven.
    • As of recent, it looks like he managed to put up enough influence on her so she broke loose again; now only controlled with her darkness and tailing to him again. It was a big influence enough that he might soon make his grand comeback after sleeping so long... To everyone's suprise, Oichi singlehandly stopped and subdued him to his throne.
      • In another world, he was sealed away for years until his faithful servants reawoken him in Steampunk 20th Century New York. He once again began about his conquest to rule over the mortal realm under the Sixth Heaven, almost succeeding. While different in realms, there is no denying their strength and abnormal powers to bring their opponents to their knees.
  • Apparently controls a Zekrom, presumably on loan from N. Presumably. He later returned Zekrom back to N due the fact that he had captured a shiny Rayquaza for himself.
  • Reports said that he was responsible of the massacre of the ninja clan Hokage, in which Kurei demanded responsibility. On hearing that news, Nobunaga just took a sip on his skull glass and said such massacre was a daily, insignificant activity in his path of conquest.
  • Nobunaga is the only Sengoku period figure that actually renews his alliance with Fortinbras. But even Fortinbras is aware that Nobunaga has made it this way without his help, but with his own power and evilness.
  • Has received a stare from Riku over the report of the two sounding alike. Not only that, Ash Ketchum has even commented that Nobunaga somehow reminds him of Cilan.
  • His opinions at his 'eventual killer', Akechi Mitsuhide, was nothing but disappointment. He doesn't think highly of his psycho self, but he considers the 'good' self unnecessary, worthless and both forms aren't enough to take him down here in the Pantheon. Though he did enjoy a good chuckle when he heard that his evil self made his daughter Gracia cried in despair, something that Nobunaga claimed to be "Finally doing something useful for once..."
  • There were actually some people who believed that Nobunaga was actually a normal, more positive man (if eccentric) who did ruthless things because it was necessary. This Nobunaga, on the other hand, has quelled almost any denials with impunity, wanting to ensure that his only legacy would be the legacy of the evil demon king bent on subjugating humanity. Unfortunately, Nobunaga ended up becoming a victim of a more pragmatic version of Nobunaga (who occasionally turns into a musket-shooting little girl with Napoleon Complex) when the latter ambushed his forces and took over a portion of his house, turning it into the more pragmatic Nobunaga's house. Nobunaga was pissed, that he was put in the shoes of that buffoon warlord wannabe, Imagawa Yoshimoto, that he crushed at Okehazama. Because no one pulls a 'prank' on Nobunaga and lives with it, he decided that he will crush this other Nobunaga, declaring that the Pantheon only needs one Oda Nobunaga. It cannot be helped.
    • Not to mention that he did encounter the Koei counterparts of his other retainers (whom he's annoyed by due to their more steadfast personalities while Nouhime happens to be very cryptic), as well as the other Oda Nobunaga (who was closer to his historical counterpart) firsthand in the past. Koei Nobunaga merely scoffed at Capcom Nobunaga for his attitude, and while speaking out his historically-iconic "is that so?" Verbal Tic, the Capcom version tried to cut him down....only to be massively surprised that the other Nobunaga literally pulled off a Blade Lock against him with just his hand alone. Capcom Nobunaga will never forgive the Koei version for such a humiliation....while the Koei version says that the Capcom version is....amusing.
    • It was also made clear that Capcom Nobunaga ruled over the practices of playing his demonic nature as straight as possible as a Card-Carrying Villain. It was still a big enough practice even when some has tried steering away from it or downplay it. Even Fortinbras allowed his version of Nobunaga to become this Nobunaga's High Priest as a response.

  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil. Formerly Lawful Good as Princess Vanessa.
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, Go Mad from the Revelation, The Dreaded, Knight of Cerebus, An Ice Person, Ice Queen, God Save Us from the Queen!, Evil Is Deathly Cold, Evil Old Folks, Love Makes You Evil, Yandere, Would Hurt a Child.
  • Domains: Ice, Fear, Hatred, Despair, Evil, Love, Obsession.
  • Enemies: Hat Kid, The Snatcher, Mario, Luigi, Queen Elsa, Cuphead & Mugman.
  • Respected by: Yuuki Terumi, Flowey, GUAC Yandere Squad (especially Yuno Gasai).
  • Feared by: Almost anyone in the Pantheon, Hat Kid, Mustache Girl, The Mafia Of Cooks.
  • Dislikes: The House of Fire & Heat, the House of Love. Anyone who enters her manor.
  • Pitied by: Velvet Crowe
  • Opposed by: Any good royal deity. Any child deity.
  • Queen Vanessa is the most feared denizen of Subcon Forest. So much so that, even the spirits that reside in the forest fear her. She is absolutely dangerous, and she'll freeze anyone who enters her manor, including children.
  • Before she was Queen Vanessa, she was once Princess Vanessa, who formerly ruled the forest village alongside her lover; the Prince (aka The Snatcher). She seemed like a nice girl at first glance, but deep down, she had a very unhealthy obsession with the Prince to the point that she banned bacon in the house because he loved it more than her, and was even considering to lock him up in the basement just to keep him from leaving. As the Prince went away for his studies, she would receive letters from him detailing about his progress, but more importantly, the letters mentioned a female tutor, which made Vanessa increasingly jealous overtime as a result. At some point in her past, Vanessa was then crowned queen because her mother had an "accident". However, she didn't like becoming a queen because she thought she can no longer be a beautiful princess. Then, one day, Vanessa was strolling around town when she finds her Prince hanging out with another girl, and the girl in question was giving him flowers. Upon seeing this, Vanessa became heartbroken, and immediately assumed that the Prince cheated on her to see another girl. She storms away crying, unaware that the Prince was actually buying flowers from the girl to give to Vanessa. When the Prince tried to give the flowers to Vanessa, it was already too late. Her emotions corrupted her, and she then locked the Prince up in her basement. Vanessa then transformed into a hideous shadow monster, and since then, it has been presumed that she was responsible for the creation of Subcon Forest. As for the Prince, he would eventually transform into The Snatcher.
  • Queen Vanessa was ascended into the Pantheon for being the living embodiment of Sinister Silhouettes. Upon her ascension, she became feared by the rest of the Pantheon because of her really dangerous nature, but especially Hat Kid, who knows full well how terrifying she really is. Most gods and goddesses keep their distances away from Queen Vanessa, lest they want to end up as an ice sculpture in her manor.
    • Because of her dangerous nature and ability over ice, Queen Elsa opposes Vanessa for unnecessarily freezing anyone she comes across. Elsa tried to confront Vanessa for her actions, but was immediately attacked on sight and narrowly escapes. Elsa has since considered Vanessa a very dangerous enemy.
    • Naturally, most good royals in the Pantheon fear and oppose Queen Vanessa, and have issued a warning to any deity should she come across their temples.
  • Yuuki Terumi has expressed interest in Queen Vanessa because she's brimming with a lot of hatred and despair of which he could feed off of. However, since he was unsuccessful in "negotiating" with her, Terumi would troll Vanessa occasionally by entering her manor and interrupting her when she least expects it. Terumi is hoping to get Queen Vanessa on his side one day so that he can use her despair to his advantage.
  • Flowey also respects Queen Vanessa for mercilessly killing anyone, including children, she comes by. However, he chooses to keep his distance from her, and just observes her killing spree from afar. It's also because since his ascension he has dropped his whole "kill or be killed" philosophy, and whenever he sees someone entering her home, he secretly pitches in to distract her by popping in random places in her house away from the poor soul who entered and causing noise to divert Queen Vanessa's attention.
  • Velvet Crowe pities Queen Vanessa because of her dark and tragic backstory, which almost reminds her of herself, and how she almost let all of her hatred and despair consume her for the sake of a loved one. Velvet still sees Vanessa as an enemy though, as she notes that Vanessa outputs a lot of Malevolence to the point that she could be considered a Lord of Calamity herself. She also reminds Velvet too much of Teresa Linares, and wonders if Vanessa is what Teresa would have been if she were to be consumed by Malevolence and become a Daemon.
  • Mustache Girl was also not happy to hear about her ascension, because she was the only "bad guy" she could not judge because of how terrifying she is.
  • Due to her tragic backstory, some speculate that Queen Vanessa still has remnants of her love for the Prince, aka The Snatcher, hidden within her. However, given how dangerous she is, no one wants to try and consult her about it.
  • The GUAC Yandere Squad was quite impressed at how far Queen Vanessa was willing to go just to keep her lover from leaving her, and is considering inviting her over to their house for discussion. Given her current state though, they fear that this could backfire and end up in them getting frozen into ice sculptures, but Yuno Gasai is confident enough to take Vanessa on should this happen.
  • Given how she is surrounded by a lot of ice, she loathes deities with fire-based powers, given how they could make quick work of all the ice sculptures she "created". Whenever this would free them or permanently kill them is unknown. It also doesn't help that her hair is very long, making that a fire hazard as well.
  • The Snatcher was both pissed off seeing her within the Pantheon, but at the same time relieved. He's angry at her ascension because he wants absolutely nothing to do with her after her actions caused him to get changed into the Snatcher by being locked in the cellar. He's happy at her ascension because her temple is now in the house of Villains, this meant that she was finally gone from Subcon Forest, at least within the Pantheon.
  • Professor E. Gadd sent Luigi out to Queen Vanessa's manor to try and place some radars within Queen Vanessa's manor in hidden locations to help keep track of her and any poor souls who wander in there. He reluctantly agreed if Mario would come and help him, considering just how unusual Queen Vanessa is from the usual ghouls and manors he is used to. With the two of them running around in the manor, Queen Vanessa found herself chasing one after the other as they keep evading her grasp. Doesn't help that they brought Ice Flowers with them so they were able to freeze her for brief periods of time, buying them precious seconds to finish their mission. Ever since then, Queen Vanessa is interested in making sure they stay out of her manor, or at the very least, turn them into new ice statues.
  • Given their experiences in dealing with devils, Cuphead and Mugman decided, after being dared by a couple other pranksters, to last a full hour within Queen Vanessa's home. Using a combination of their invincibility Super Art, quick and rapid smoke bomb dashes, and using the fact that they have a cup and a mug for a head to hide by crouching on table in poorly lit rooms, they were able to survive and left behind a message within the manor saying how they outsmarted Queen Vanessa. Not that would be able to find it now, as she ripped and tore it up after reading it.
  • The problem with anyone trying to either befriend or talk with Vanessa is that she is not really much for conversation, even in her regular queen form. She would not let her beloved prince try to explain to her that he was not cheating on her when he was buying her flowers, so the odds of her listening to a random stranger is incredibly low, if not, nonexistent.

    Wyzen 
Wyzen, God of Corpulent Villains (Vajra Wyzen, Gongen Wyzen, Wyzen of the Seven Deities)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_400px-wyzen_2272.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Vajra Wyzen and Gongen Wyzen)
  • Symbol: His giant right fist
  • Theme Song: The Gods Military Forces
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (believes himself to be Lawful Good)
  • Portfolio: Fat and Evil, Acrofatic, Boisterous Bruiser, Fifty-Foot Brute with a God Complex, Dumb Muscle, Hand Cannon, Hammy Starter Villain with a gigantic ego, Megaton Punches from his great fists, powerful Smugness
  • Domains: Big Size, Violence, Shouting, Idiocy
  • Allies: Deus, Augus
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Yasha
  • Friendly Rivalry with: Yozakura, Whispy Woods
  • Enemies: Asura, Mithra, Chakravartin, Yuuki Terumi, Hades, Melkor, Kratos, Raditz, Noriko Takaya, Sun Wukong, monkey deities in general, the entire House of Villains (ironically enough)
  • Wyzen was originally one of the Eight Guardian Generals in service to the Emperor of Shinkoku to protect the Realm of Shinkoku and Gaea from those who wished to destroy it, his mantra affinity is Violence. However, Wyzen and six of the other generals participated in General Deus' coup d'etat, which culminated in the assassination of the Emperor and the banishment and death of General Asura, who was blamed as the cause. Afterwards, the Eight Guardian Generals were disbanded and transformed into the Seven Deities. 12,000 years later, Wyzen confronted Asura shortly after the latter's return. After transforming into Gongen Wyzen, his most powerful form, he attempted to destroy Asura using only his finger. However, Asura not only managed to stop Wyzen's finger but also, with his last punch, caused a chain reaction that completely destroyed Wyzen's body. Wyzen was later reincarnated in the modern world and was beaten up by a reincarnated Asura after angering him by pushing the reincarnated Mithra.
  • Wyzen was originally the last of the Seven Deities to be ascended as part of Deus's plans, he was made the God of Starter Villains. However, once further scrutiny had been given for each and every one of them, Wyzen was removed along with Kalrow, Olga and Sergei. Unperturbed by this setback, Deus attempted to ascend the remaining Seven Deities once again and managed to once again ascend Wyzen into the pantheon, this time as the God of Corpulent Villains.
  • Upon his arrival within the pantheon, Wyzen declared that he would "root out all evil with his great fists". Many gods, particularly Terumi and Hades, found this statement hilariously ironic, considering his position as the God of Corpulent Villains. Regardless, Wyzen insists that he's not a villain and has targeted both Terumi and Hades on several occasions, although both have managed to fend him off each time.
  • Wyzen was furious to discover that Asura was also present within the pantheon, but was convinced by Deus to avoid any confrontations with him or with Mithra for the time being. Wyzen was also outraged to hear about Yasha's betrayal and annoyed by the fact that Augus was similarly on amicable terms with Asura. Regardless, Wyzen is still willing to work alongside them when needed, such as whenever they end up battling against Chakravartin.
  • Although he's very boastful of his strength, Wyzen is actually the weakest of the Seven Deities. This has resulted in an unfortunate tendency for him to engage in numerous confrontations with deities much stronger than himself. On one occasion, he decided to wipe out the entire GUAE by targeting their leader, Melkor. The encounter ended with Wyzen getting sorely curbstomped.
  • Surprisingly, Wyzen managed to somewhat befriend Yozakura and Whispy Woods. Yozakura respects him for his use of a massive power gauntlet and frequently challenges him into battle in order to improve her skills with her own power gauntlets. Whispy Woods, on the other hand, is considered by Wyzen to be a rival of sorts due to him similarly being seen by many as an easy Warm-Up Boss, which initially resulted in Whispy fearing him. However, due to Whispy's forgiving personality and willingness to gift those nice to him with health items and collectables, their rivarly is incredibly amicable.
  • Wyzen once had an unfortunate meeting with Kratos, which ended with Wyzen becoming Gongen Wyzen and trying to squash the God of War with his finger. It didn't work, and the House of Life and Death had to spend a few weeks collecting the various pieces of Wyzen that were scattered across the Pantheon.
  • He's also developed a dislike of Raditz, who had received Wyzen's previous title. The two frequently engage in battle, which Raditz is often eager to do in order to become stronger.
  • His tendency to call out his attacks drew the attention of Noriko Takaya, who disapproved of sharing a trait with a villain such as him. Wyzen initially didn't think much of her, but quickly learned that she was a formidable opponent after fighting her while she was in her GunBuster.
  • Due to his defeat at the hands of Asura, Wyzen has developed a dislike of monkeys in general. As such, he quickly became enemies with Sun Wukong after the latter made fun of him. The two had a brief fight that was quickly broken up when the temple they were in started collapsing. Wyzen has since indicated that he would very much like to have a rematch.

  • The Horned King has a straightforward goal in mind (straightforward for an undead sorcerer anyways) and it's to turn everyone else in the world into undead minions so that he can rule over them. To do so, he seeks out what is known as The Black Cauldron and relies on it to create an undead army. Looking at him, it's obvious why this villain is called the Horned King.
  • Despite his ambitions, he actually doesn't have a whole lot in the way of powers. He can apparently teleport some distance, but that's more or less the only magic ability anyone who's heard of him has known about and he mostly has to rely on the cauldron in order to fight back against those who confront him. He might have another magic ability or two, but even that doesn't seem likely.
  • Hoping to get a bit more power so that he could be more of a chance at being successful in his goals, The Horned King tried to see if there was another cauldron; one that was at the very least on par with what he has at the moment. After hearing about the cauldron that was used by The Weird Sisters, he decided to try and see if it was something that could be of use to him. Unfortunately for him, by the time he reached their cauldron, the sisters were within earshot of him when he attempted to use it and a fight ensued, followed by the sisters telling the king never to go near their cauldron again. The Horned King is quite bitter towards them as a result and the sisters share that contempt as well.
  • Of all the things that interested the Horned King, Gul'dan's cursed skull ranked highly in such. Gul'dan is aware that yet another being wants his skull, but seeing that the Horned King wants more power to achieve world domination, he was surprisingly willing to help the Horned King get some more power. That and Gul'dan actually saw a bit of potential in the Black Cauldron. Of course, Gul'dan is not the most trustworthy deity in the Pantheon and the Horned King is not really aware of it, so this particular alliance isn't going to stay permanent.
    • Speaking of the Black Cauldron, the Horned King is looking for a better alternative without effects that would screw him over. Given that a willing volunteer to enter the Cauldron is all it takes to destroy it, and there are either Unscrupulous Heroes or other villains who can dupe some dumb schmuck to do that, it's truly something that concerns him. One alternate scenario had Maleficent point out the superiority of the Heartless over the Cauldron-born, and seal the deal by duping a Shadow into believing there was a Heart inside it. And given that a Heartless was technically a living being in that instance…
  • Link and Zelda are two deities that The Horned King hates very much, likely due to the two being slightly similar to Taran and Eilonwy, who both defeated him back then. The Horned King has actually reached out to Ganondorf to try and look for ways to defeat the two. While Ganondorf was willing to aid The Horned King sometimes, he ultimately made it clear to the undead lich that if someone were to deliver the finishing blow to both Link and Zelda, then it would be The King of Darkness himself.
  • Comparisons have been made between him and The Lich, given who they are and their relatively similar appearance. The latter is several times more powerful and dangerous than The Horned King, especially since The Lich wants to destroy everything entirely. The Horned King sees The Lich as a problem, especially since if everything is destroyed, then there'll be nothing for The Horned King to rule over (or at the very least, use an undead army to rule the world).
  • While most evil undead beings (lichs in particular) are well-aware that The Horned King isn't quite as powerful as them, a few of them do acknowledge that he has potential if he put a bit more effort to his plans. A few of these undead menances have given him a taste of what true undead power is like. He is particularly impressed with Arthas' Scourge and Zhaitan's range in creating an undead army.
  • He has hanged out with Skeletor on a frequent basis thanks to having similar goals in world conquest. While the Horned King has talked to Skeletor about the latter's powers and how the former can improve his methods, they sometimes just talk about how they want to lay waste towards any obstacle that approaches them. Skeletor has even considered having The Horned King aid him in defeating He-Man, though such a team-up is only going to happen if The Horned King becomes stronger.
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque took an immediate dislike towards the Horned King, seeing him as no different from his Arch-Enemy Zarok (who just so happens to have a horned appearance as well) in terms of using an undead army to crush anyone that opposes them. In turn, The Horned King didn't take it well when he learned that there there was an undead hero trying to stop him.
  • Xul took plenty of issue to The Horned King's goals, seeing him as someone who could destroy the balance of the world if given enough time. The Horned King decided to use his cauldron to summon some undead mooks to attack Xul, but the Cryptic Necromancer was skilled enough to wipe out whatever was summoned against him. After this defeat, The Horned King has sworn that Xul won't be as lucky next time.
  • Even if he's an undead lich who wants to take over the world, he somehow has time to visit Mickey Mouse's nightclub to relax every now and then (though he doesn't visit as often compared to other Disney villains). It came as a surprise to some who expected a dead-serious villain, but then again, there exists villains far more deadly than he is (some of which include some of his own allies).

  • Followers: Mr. Fuji, Muhammad Hassan, Vladimir Kozlov, Nikolai Volkoff, The Great Khali, Jinder Mahal (all played straight whenever they play as Heels)
  • Ally: Cesaro
  • Rival: Hulk Hogan
  • Ascended partly due to his legacy and popularity among certain worshippers and partly due to an incident where he walked into the Gladiator Pit of Maryseutopia and locked a still-recovering Gobbledy Gooker in the Camel Clutch, "humbling" the Gooker and rendering him injured again.
  • Is forbidden from entering the House of Combat to prevent him and Hogan from getting into another fight.
  • Whenever not antagonizing non-Irani or non-Russian gods, he pretty much spends most of his time rambling for hours against anybody who he thinks has dissrespected him, mentioning how he will "make them humble" with the "Iranian Loch Ness". Let's just say that it is a big list of people.
    "If you no wanna show respect to the Sheik, I suplex you, put you in the Camel Clutch, break your back, make you humble and FACK YOUR ASS!"
  • For some strange reason, he keeps walking up to stronger Gods and claims that "they are the man, but shooting-wise, he can beat the fuck out of them" only to walk away. Most people don't know if that is considered a compliment or an insult.
  • Surprisingly enough, he accepts the offer of appearing in the Pantheon version of The Jerry Springer Show. The Iron Sheik has many memories of that show when he appeared as a guest star.
  • He may or may not be an anti-semite. He is confusing like that.

  • Enemies: Laurie Strode, Sidney Prescott, Freddy Krueger, Ash Williams, all of New York City, anybody who steps foot at Crystal Lake, The Angry Video Game Nerd, all Mortal Kombat characters (especially Liu Kang)
  • Admired by: Kurei
  • Born out the twisted love of his mother and the hatred of camps and all who dwell in them, the revenant known as Jason can be seen at night, slowly walking in the hunt of whoever is unfortunate enough to be within reach. With his deadly machete and immense strength, he can cut down any ordinary human with ease. That includes any deities foolish enough to challenge it. And once he is after you... don't expect him to ''ever'' stop. He has only grown more powerful with age but with the price of his once normal body turning into something monstrous.
    • Was formerly the God of Machetes, but a certain Mexican hitman took is place. By force. While Jason lost his old home, he simply carried it over to his own home. He now seeks out the man to overthrew him in order to get revenge.
  • Is among the most revered monsters in the horror genre, specifically ones that involve menacing figures who kill off their victims one by one. And yet he is often well liked even among those outside his congregation. That may be due to the fact that most people that meet him are Too Dumb to Live anyways. To them, he serves as the true hero who weeds out the week and dumb.
  • Another reason why he is so feared? He actually got to kill his own Final Girl. At least the first one anyways. It is this reason that Laurie and Sidney are most wary of Jason other than their own pursuers. The duo have been hard at work training their clergy on how to survive an encounter with him.
  • His temple is a recreation of Camp Crystal Lake, all the way down to how the grass is laid. One can only find Jason by venturing out on their own.. Most mortals don't make it out alive and the ones that do usually have help from someone in the Pantheon. Even most other gods refrain from entering.
  • Despite his ascension, he now spends most of his time trying to hunt down Freddy Krueger. After an incident with one Ash Williams, the three have seen each other in a never-ending struggle and epic brawl that's caused many to gape in awe.
    • Completing his animosity towards of there horror monsters, Michael Myers competes with him over who gets to kill certain people. Normally seeing both monsters at the same time would spell doom, but if one could play their cards right one can pit the two against one another.
  • There was a time when he found a discarded chainsaw once used by Marcus Fenix, the God of Chainsaws. All he did was stare at it for hours, wondering what to do with it. And yet ever since that incident, people insist that he has used them before. Jason found them to be needlessly complex; A machete placed with inhuman strength was all he's ever needed.
  • Arthas has for some time tried to make him join the Scourge. Despite being allies, he refuses this offer.
  • As noted, Jason is a massive mama's boy, so much that he visits her grave every year. Her soul now belongs to Sofia Lamb, who was impressed with how that mother could create such a monster. She compares Jason to the Big Daddy, a creation of her own.
  • Even though he kills almost everything in sight, he still seems to have some sort of mental incapability that hinders him from killing anyone younger than 17. This has led to him becoming friends with Erma, whom for some reason finds him so huggable; not that he's complaining, and neither should you if see him go to a tea-party with her in pink clothing, though you REALLY don't want to anger him either way.
  • Is among the Gods defeated by the Angry Video Game Nerd because Jason forced him to play his NES game. He and Freddy sometimes put their differences aside to plan for his demise.
  • While wandering around, he came across a lot of interesting targets. They're a lot stronger than his usual marks, but they're also very evil to one another. His mother will be most pleased with their deaths.
    • In an alternate timeline, Jason caught the attention of Earthrealm's new emperor, Liu Kang, who wanted him to fight in his planned invasion of Earthrealm. He choked him to death with his own intestines, though it wasn't permanent due to being undead. The real Liu Kang is now far more wary of succumbing to his own hubris. He would thank Jason, but there's no way he's getting anywhere near him without good reason.
    • He encounters Leatherface once again and is not pleased to meet him. They had a rivals in the past when they thought that they would be likely allies until it was clear that Leatherface was more loyal to family than "friends." The normally emotionless Jason attacked Leatherface for his betrayal. Their re-encounter in Mortal Kombat reignited their rivalry and were ready to kill each other again.
    • It is in this landscape where he caught the eye of Maximilian. One of many fans of the movie, he was ecstatic to have the chance of playing Jason in the game. That even led to a surprise appearance in an unseen Assist Me segment. Luckily, Jason spared him, allowing the gamer to go through his moveset before he vanished without a trace.
  • In truth, he actually gets along with the T-800 just fine ( the one out to kill Sarah Connor, not the one out to protect her son). Both are capable of hunting down their victims to the ends of the earth. While the Terminator prefers firearms, Jason is more than likely to hack things up in range. In short, don't ever cross the paths of these two at the same time. It will likely not end well for you.
  • Considers gaining tribute from Kurei himself to be an honor. Kurei himself considered an alliance since the two loved their mothers. Alas, Jason was too difficult to direct, so Kurei went back to going after eternal rival Recca
  • If people thought he was scary before, he gets a lot more dangerous. When it was revealed that he survived well into the future, he managed to get a hold of upgrades. Final girls crapped their pants when they found out that not even bullets could harm him. As compensation, Jason only unleashes this form under extreme circumstance.
  • He's a dangerous, dangerous man.... and he knows your house.

  • Enemies: Solid Snake, Big Boss, Solidus Snake, Revolver Ocelot, The Patriots, Raiden, Simba, Arturia, Skull Face
  • When Liquid realized that his brother and father had ascended, he decided that they needed to be destroyed. The Pantheon took notice of his hilariously hammy British accent and allowed him to keep a seat.
  • Realized that the Pantheon had grown weak with all the hope bringers and heroes, so he decided to use the resources here to "bring chaos and honor to a Pantheon gone soft". Also believes that the Main House is only filled with liars and hypocrites and that they shouldn't be in charge. As a result, Liquid tries to push many nonviolent or pacifist members of the Pantheon to become killers, believing that they need the thrill of battle to snap them.
  • He somehow earned the hatred of Toph Beifong, though this maybe due to the fact that he sounds like her father. This also earned him strange looks from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Leonardo the most.
    • Also earned a few strange stares from Sora as he sounds like Simba, much to his confusion.
  • Works surprisingly well with Souther. Some say it is because they sound similar to each other.
  • Decided to get FOXHOUND into the Pantheon, even though he's their, C.O. and not their mother, starting with Psycho Mantis.
    • Has managed to ascend Psycho Mantis and gained his loyalty when Mantis realized this would be another chance to kill many people. With Mantis's help, they were able to ascend Sniper Wolf, but she decided not to work for Liquid again. The Main House also denied Decoy Octopus the chance to ascend, leaving Vulcan Raven as Liquid's last possible ally.
    • Now Vulcan Raven has ascended. Many in the Pantheon are awaiting Liquid's next move.
    • When questioned about his plans Liquid merely claimed, "We'll be able to bring Chaos and Honor back to this Pantheon gone soft!"
  • Extends an Alliance to Mordred as he sympathizes with him and knows what it's like to be the child/clone of a Legendary Warrior only for them to want nothing to do with their child. Though he congratulates Mordred on being able to have his revenge while Solid Snake stole Liquid's Chance.
  • Also present in the House of Nationalities.

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Weapon, the Biotic Grasp. Alternatively, the Biotic Orbs.
  • Theme Song: Moira's theme
  • Alignment: Considers herself to be Above Good and Evil. She is closer to Lawful Evil with Chaotic Neutral leanings.

  • Domains: Science, Genetics, Knowledge, Healing, Decay
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Overwatch (Special mention to Angela Ziegler/Mercy and Jesse McCree), Scientists with Standards, The Tenno, The House of Beast,
  • Moira O'Deorain is a controversial scientist where she comes from, after a discovery about genetic modification that could help humanity and her lack of ethics caused her piers to dissent of her methods. That's why he was drafted by Gabriel Reyes and allowed to operate in secret in behalf of Overwatch while making her a member of Blackwatch. After the Venice incident, Overwatch cut all ties with Moira and denied her involvement, but Reyes kept in contact with her since his own cell degeneration caused by the Soldier program forced him to seek her aid. Eventually Moira became one of the heads of Talon, which are happy to allow her to continue her investigation while she provides them the means to continue their cause.
  • Talon wanted to have another one of their higher ups in the pantheon in order to have a better presence so Moira was quick to join them, mostly because they told her there were breakouts in science unheard on her world and she couldn't waste an opportunity to know more about it. She is dissapointed that she couldn't be appointed to Science but she was respectful of the Court of Gods wishes and remained in a different temple.
    • As for her title? Well, let's say that Moira used to do most of her experiments on herself. Results were not pretty.
  • It goes without saying that Moira and the ascended Overwatch members don't see eye to eye, especially her old Blackwatch teammates Genji Shimada and Jesse McCree. But the one person she hates the most is Mercy, not only because they are basically polar opposites, but because she is very jealous of her scientific discoveries while she herself was shunned. It's not secret that her Biotic Grasp is Ziegler's technology modified by Moira to suit her needs.
  • As stated before, Moira is obssessed with the House of Science and she seems to have a cordial relationship with Mesogog and Ryoma Sengoku who are the heads of the less ethical parts of the House who find miss O'Deorain to be quite interesting. Her favourite subhouse would be Genetic Engineering where she often like to investigate about the different type of people that inhabit the House.
    • She is also a geneticist of the evil kind and has done some of her first experiments on animals before moving on to people. She has been contacted by people who have done the latter, namely Dr. Eggman, Dr. N. Cortex and Dr. N. Brio but she is been disinterested in going along their plans.
  • While she is primarely a Geneticist, Moira also has the role of Talon's Combat Medic in certain operations. While she would rather don't take matters personally, she will do so if they have to be done. During a trip through the House of Health and Diseases she found out about The Medic, someone who her "dear friend" Angela doesn't think high of and actually became allies, mostly since Moira has been interested in replicating his technology. Another person she bonded with was Fabius Bile, as a fellow Mad Scientist he understands Moira's drives and considers her a kindred soul.
  • Sheev Palpatine has taken interest in her genetic experimentation and has tried to form an alliance with Talon in order to see the results, especially if she create new effective clones for the empire. Moira has considered the offer but so far she is not interested.
    • Speaking of clone armies, she also decided to investigate on the Grineer after they made a similar offer to her. She was very underwhelmed that the average soldier of the Grineer army was in poor condition and she apalled by their weak genetic code meaning they serve no purpose to her. She remained on their good side though, since she doesn't want to risk having the Grineer after her but that made the Tenno consider her a potential target. Nevermind that Moira is very interested to learn about the Tenno's biology and that they are also allies with Genji, an old teammate of Moira.
  • She used to experiment on animals, particularly bunnies, which made her be hated by a large part of the House of Beast, especially those that were experimented on.
  • Moira has been noted to have a certain physical resemblance to David Bowie, especially when she dones the Glam Rock costume. The similarities don't stop there, she as others have noticed she also resembles King Jareth which was one of Bowie's roles.
  • The Biotic Grasp has been certainly an interesting device, but others have noticed that her healing liquid make it looks like she is throwing piss to her allies. She finds the later comments highly unamusing.
  • Infamously considered to be a Weeaboo. This is because of her tendency to do a Bird Run akin to ninjas, coalessence resembling a Kamehameha and other things as well.
  • "Science will reveal the truth."
  • Can also be found in the House of Personal Appearance.

    Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin 
Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, God of Well-Dressed Villains (The Penguin, The King of Gotham)

  • Enemies: Batman, Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Robin, Jason Todd, Catwoman, Tony Stark, Mystery Gang, Parasoul
  • Rivals: Mirai, Yagyuu
  • The life of Oswald Cobblepot has not been an easy one. Despite having a wealthy family, Oswald was frequently bullied because of his appearance, which earned him the derogatory nickname, "The Penguin". Finding comfort only in the birds he kept as pets and his mother, who forced him to carry umbrellas everywhere he went out of fear that he would catch pneumonia the way his father had, Oswald began a life of crime, which he attempted to add an air of refinement and elegance to by wearing fancy penguin suits, reviving the old nickname. Before long, the name that had once plagued Oswald's youth became a name to be feared throughout Gotham's criminal underworld.
  • His birds serve as a courier service between the various houses.
  • No, he does not have Happy Feet, and No, he doesn't wombo combo Batman.
  • Penguin is indeed sane by all definitions, and thus treated different from a lot of Batman's other rogues. Indeed, it's often thought that if Batman had to let 1 villain survive and let all the others go, he'd choose Penguin, because he at least keeps things real.
    • As a sane villain, he does a lot of under the table dealings among the villains, and even sometimes to the other alliances. His main goal is to restore the Cobblepot name, so it matters less who he sells to, and more that someone's buying.
      • That being said, he typically doesn't do business with the GUAG on a matter of principle. The good guys always hurt his operations anyways.
  • Penguin's appearance can fluctuate, though typically he's seen as a well dressed man with black hair and a beak like nose. The other forms, while acceptable, don't quite fit his position in the pantheon, particularly his Batman Returns form.
  • Penguin, despite being quite the different cut from The Joker doesn't hold too much against his fellow gang man. After all, they did team up quite a bit in the 60's.
  • Another key component of Cobblepot's success is the Not So Harmless look he cultivates. Being nominally short and underfit, nobody would possibly expect his umbrella then to shoot bullets, blades or knockout gas.
  • While a criminal, some have shown sympathy of Oswald's abuse from his parents. Which include a mother who would beat him if he didn't carry his umbrella when going outside, or the sexual abuse from his father, in the form of having Oswald watch as his parents had sex in front of him.
  • He once ran for mayor, but lost to Batman.
  • Has made some business connection with Roman Torchwick. Each of them supplies the others with weapons that they may need.
  • Penguin sometimes likes to lord over the other villains that he was the king of Gotham long before most of the other posers were even contenders. As such, some of the villains admit that they rather enjoy the form he takes on in these days as it makes him a good judge of character and a Magnificent Bastard, which they could always use more of.

    Tamatoa 
Tamatoa, God of Evil Shininess (Beady-Eyed Bottom Feeder, Clam Cake)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tamatoa.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His gold-encrusted shell
  • Theme Song: "Shiny"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: being a humongously ancient coconut/decorator crab, incredibly vain and arrogant, really loves singing about how great and shiny he is, quite dangerous and threatening for someone obsessed over adorning himself with golden treasure and bioluminescent algae, missing a leg but still kicking, surprisingly fast, having an appetite for humans (and his own grandma), being silly, snarky and frightening, Breaking the Fourth Wall
  • Domains: Shininess, Narcissism, Giant Crabs, Singing, Scavenging
  • Followers: Sunstorm, Alameda Slim, Cytomander
  • Allies: David Bowie, Jareth, Deadpool, SCP-169
  • Enemies: Moana, Maui, The Rock, Roadhog and Junkrat, anybody that tries to steal from his treasure collection but specially Carmen Sandiego
  • Opposed by: House of Defense, House of Commerce
  • Fears: Smaug, The Eliksni
  • Although he claims to have been just "a drab little crab" once, by the time Tamatoa ascended to the Pantheon he was an over-a-thousand-years-old colossal crustacean who had covered himself in all sorts of shiny and glittering treasure in an effort to become the most beautiful of crabs, convinced that what really matters is how you look on the outside rather than what lies on the inside. Nowadays he spends most of his time sleeping in his temple, designed after the sparkling cave he used to inhabit while living on Lalotai, occasionally waking up to either feed or greet an intruder (or both). And for when he's not lazying around on his lair, he's exploring the Pantheon in search for more gold and jewels to encrust on his shell. Or singing.
  • Holds a special grudge against Maui and Moana, the former for an incident where he ripped off one of Tamatoa's legs in a fight, and the latter for foiling his attempt to kill Maui, returning Maui his hook, and leaving Tamatoa stuck on his back. However, upon ascending to the Pantheon he was first surprised to learn that Maui was back to his full potential despite the psychical and emotional beatdown he had delivered to him last time they met. As for Moana, Maui has made it very clear that he'll make clam cake out of Tamatoa if he ever dares to come near her. And considering Maui is in proper control over his powers this time, Tamatoa has wisefully avoided interacting with any of them. He still can't help but wonder if they liked his song, though.
  • Tamatoa's obsession of adorning his shell with whatever sparkling and precious treasure he can find has resulted in him being preemptively banned from ever even trying to enter the Vault, and while he'd love to get his claws on anything the Vault has to offer, he's too scared of the House of Defense to bother trying. For now he remains content just scavenging around the Pantheon for anything that's glittery enough to add to his collection, although this behavior also resulted in him being banned from the House of Commerce as well after trying to get hold of some of its shiny riches.
    • Ironically, said collection of treasures has attracted the attention of many would-be thieves around the Pantheon, specially those originating from the House of Crime. Unfortunately for them, Tamatoa is rather protective of his gold, and most of the deities that've tried to sneak into his lair have narrowly escaped becoming his dinner.
    • However, no thief has gotten on Tamatoa's nerves as much as Carmen Sandiego, due to an incident where Carmen stole not only part of his treasure, but his entire shell as well. This resulted in Tamatoa being too ashamed of his appearance to even leave his lair, which extended for several weeks. When it became clear that Tamatoa wasn't even going to try to get his shell back, Sandiego returned it out of boredom. To say that Tamatoa is both resentful and wary of Sandiego now would be an understatement.
    • He also dreads the day either Smaug or the Eliksni decide to come after his hoard, considering the former's destructive thirst for anything golden and reputation and the latter's extreme insistence and dedication to stealing. While he has managed to avoid them for now, it's only a matter of time before one of them notice him.
  • Considering the resemblance between the two, it's not surprising that he's in good terms with the late David Bowie. Tamatoa admits that, while certainly nowhere near as glam and shiny as he is, this Bowie guy has a pretty sweet style. He also gets along with Jareth the Goblin King for this reason.
  • Although it's true that Tamatoa enjoys eating fellow giant crabs, he hasn't gone out of his way to try to eat Shen Gaoren, as Tamatoa prefers weaker prey that come to him.
    • Speaking of crabs, Tamatoa once woke up in his lair to find Mr. Krabs (who hadn't learnt his lesson after attempting the same with Smaug) trying to get hold of some of his shiny hoard. Once caught, Krabs tried to persuade Tamatoa into letting him go by pointing out that they are both crustaceans with a love for gold, and that Tamatoa would certainly understand why a fellow crab like him would try to stea- eh, "borrow" some of his golden treasure. While Tamatoa agreed with him, he also told him that he didn't care for his points as much as he cared for free food. Even though he just re-spawned later, Mr. Krabs certainly has no plans of interacting with Tamatoa ever again.
  • Initially puzzled upon coming across Roadhog dressed like a Mauri warrior, since he bore an uncanny resemblance to Maui right down to sporting a hook. Upon closer inspection, he was pleasantly surprised to learn it was just a less powerful deity in a costume. If anything, Roadhog's thickness and pig motif only inspired Tamatoa to treat himself to a nice meal, at least until he found out Roadhog is more than capable of defending himself, which eventually led Tamatoa to deem he just wasn't worth trying to eat.
    • Roadhog's partner in crime Junkrat didn't take too well to the incident, since the only one allowed to mess with Roadhog is him. In order to exact revenge on Tamatoa he devised a plan of both he and Roadhog sneaking a set of bombs disguised as golden treasure into the crab's lair, with them inconspicuously disguised in order to not be recognized, and then blowing it all up on Tamatoa's face (and grabbing some of his treasure on their way out, of course). While the disguises turned out to be unnecessary since Tamatoa was asleep anyway, the rest of the plan didn't go so swell. No one is quite sure exactly what happened in Tamatoa's temple during the incident, but reports claim that singing and loud explosions could be heard coming from the inside. In the end the only thing the duo escaped with was their lives, and Tamatoa has made it clear that he doesn't want anything to do with the two of them ever again.
  • There have been rumors that Tamatoa possesses a genie lamp among his treasures, specifically The Genie's lamp. However, any attempts to obtain the lamp to prove this have failed as Tamatoa forbids anyone from taking part of his treasure away from him, and he has yet to comment about the rumors. For his part, The Genie refuses to speak of the subject, although Aladdin says The Genie once claimed that Aladdin was a lot smaller than his previous master...
  • Interestingly, Tamatoa occasionally exhibits the the ability to directly address the audience. It's unknown exactly how far past the fourth wall he can look, but this ability alongside his personality has made him good friends with Deadpool, who finds Tamatoa to be quite the entertaining fellow.
  • "Shiny... I'm so shiny..."

  • Lazarević ascended when he found out the secrets of the Cintamani stone in the legendary city of Shambhala, and drank from the sap of the Tree of Life to heal himself and gain super strength and immunity to bullets. How he was able to survive being mauled to death by the Shambhala Guardians has gotten even Hades talking.
  • The first thing he did was rally up all of his forces and secure all perimeters on the House of Luck and Fortune, the place where Nathan Drake was staying and ordered his men to shoot everyone who dared enter or leave said house. Drake had no other choice but to shoot his way out and seek aid with the Court of Gods. While he did manage to hold back Lazarević's forces, the warlord still plans of having his revenge against him.
  • The reason why he got the title of bald villains is unknown to him but rumors say that Lex Luthor has something to do with that. The latter has been interested in getting ahold of the Cintamani stone in hopes of defeating Superman and is trying to convice the warmonger to work for him.
  • Getting to Lazarević isn't easy, since he's got an entire army of henchman, all equally evil and love crossing the Moral Event Horizon, to guard him. The House of War is quite astonished on how such an army was able to last this long, especially with Lazarević being the Bad Boss he is.
  • He has tried hiring both Indiana Jones and Lara Croft under his services but both refused to cooperate with a criminal. As a result, he ordered his men a "shoot on sight" if they ever came accros them, similar to what they do with Drake.
    • He also despises John MacClane because he reminds him a little too much of Drake. Plus, a heroic bald guy is not ok in his book.
  • Having lost the powers of the sap of the Tree of Life, Lazarević has sworn loyalty to Luficer in the hopes of finding another source of power that he could use to conquered lands in his universe. Little does Lazarević know is that Vanitas has his sights on him, thinking that his army would be the perfect distraction as he goes after Madoka to fool the pantheon, while he tries to kidnap Sailor Moon.
    • Lazarević is also thinking of going after the Princesses of Heart and using them to obtain the power of darkness, having heard about their powers from the Disney Villains. While he would have a chance of success, he would need thirteen beings of darkness to fully unlock said power, first.
  • Given the sheer amount of forces he brought to try finding the hidden city of Shambala, Lazarević attracted the attention of powerful terrorist organizations like HYDRA or Millenium. He has considered working with them, but only if they help him regain the powers of the Tree of Life.
    • He also allied with other powerful terrorist leaders in the pantheon like Muruta Azrael or Raul Menendez, mostly because they want to have a piece of the Cintamani stone. Lazarević just limits himself to working with them, but he has no qualms on getting rid of them after their agreement is over.
  • He worships men like Genghis Khan, Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot because in his words, they had the will to make what other men could not.
    • He sees Adenoid Hynkel in a good light, but can't stand his silly antics and prefers to ignore him.
    • That said, Lazarević indeed respects Ares as the supreme god of war. He has promised to the God that he will try helping him return to his glory days.
  • He is dissapointed on Niko Bellic, because he is the only man that comes from the same country yet refused to work for him. Besides having given up crime for a while now, Lazarevic reminds him to much of Ray Bulgarin.
  • He earned the ire of both Jago and Rana Linchen after they heard that he ravaged an entire Tibetan village just to capture one man. Being Tibetan themselves, they have expressed that Lazarević will be struck down because of his crimes.
  • Please, do not remind him about the time he put on some weight. He will probably execute you for your insolence.
  • Don't try to take any of Lazarevic's men as a hostage. He'd just shoot them himself without any care. He also regularly executes his minions if they don't meet his standards, making everyone in their forces be nervous around him.
  • If there is one thing he cannot stand that would be Pacifists. After all, he believes that Compassion is for the weak. This is one of the many reasons he despises Drake so much because he dared not to execute him at Shambala.
