  • Hao was born as Asaha Douji in Japan during the Heian era. His mother, Asanoha Douji, was mistakenly believed to have been a disguised fox spirit by the local villagers due to her ability to see ghosts. As a result, the villagers killed her by burning down the hut she and her son lived in, leaving Asaha alone and vengeful towards all humankind. Asaha saw the world as a grim and dark place until he met a small demon named Ohachiyo, who taught him all the positive aspects of life. However, after an accident involving Asaha's first Over Soul, Ohachiyo became a permanent part of Asaha and cursed him with the dangerous ability of Reishi, the ability to read the hearts of others. Though it was a quite useful ability, Asaha was unable to control this ability and was constantly inundated with the thoughts of those surrounding him. In his teen years, having witnessed the corruption and greed in the capital, Asaha was aloof to those around him, but as he grew into an adult, he became a relatively peaceful man who sought to help the people around him. With the experience of his childhood, Asaha became a talented Onmyōji. Asaha also met Matamune, a stray cat, who became his faithful companion and a real friend. When Matamune died, Asaha gave him some of his spiritual energy so that Matamune could stay with him forever. Asaha's skills had him named the guardian of Kyoto and, inspired by his office, he was given the name Hao Asakura. Later on, he also founded the Asakura family in Kyoto. Nevertheless, the curse implanted on Hao by Ohachiyo was permanent and eventually drove him completely crazy. The internal confusion and disorder that was created eventually led to his desire of creating a Shaman Kingdom on Earth and drove him to become the Shaman King in order to reach his main goal of eliminating all non-shamans. Upon learning of his plans to destroy all of humanity, the Asakuras ousted him and he was eventually killed by one of his own relatives during the Shaman Fights.
  • Following his death, Hao ended up in Hell. However, his Yin-Yang Jutsu, the mastery of the five elements, prevented his permanent death. Fighting his way past the seventy-five Lords of Hell, Hao reached Taizan Fukun, the god of the dead, and negotiated the terms of his reincarnations, making a contract which gave him the ability to resurrect the dead and reincarnate himself at will. In his second life, Hao chose to be reincarnated as a Patch Tribe member, the ones that organized the Shaman King Tournament. During his time as a Patch, he was married and had a wife and a child. He once again projected his idea of a Shaman-only world but, although he managed to gain a group of followers, was ultimately rejected by the shamans he was trying to promote. He was ultimately killed once again during the Shaman Fights by Yohken Asakura and Matamune. Despite the fact that he had died before becoming Shaman King, he achieved his goal of capturing the legendary the Spirit of Fire in order to use it as his guardian ghost in his next life.
  • In his third life, Hao chose to be reborn into his original bloodline to become stronger. Wishing to prevent Hao from being reborn and fulfilling his goal, the family agreed to kill him shortly after his birth. However, Hao was born alongside a twin brother, Yoh. Unable to determine which of the twins was Hao, their grandfather, Yohmei, reluctantly decided to kill both infants to be sure. However, Yohmei's brief moment of hesitation allowed the newborn Hao to summon the Spirit of Fire and escape, which, by extension, also resulted in Yoh's life being spared. Hao spent the following years gathering followers in preparation for the Shaman Fights. Ultimately, Hao became Shaman King, but eventually managed to finally let go of his hatred after a battle against Yoh and his friends and a reunion with his mother's spirit. Although he still disliked humanity, Hao was convinced to spare them for the time being, giving them a chance to improve themselves before he passed his judgment upon them.
  • Hao arrived into the Pantheon by appearing seemingly out of nowhere. After briefly looking at his surroundings, he simply stated "so small" before entering his temple, which had similarly appeared out of nowhere. The GUAE was strongly interested in recruiting him to their cause due to the massive power he possesses. However, Hao has made it clear that he's not interested in joining any side, preferring to remain an uninvolved observer.
  • When given the option of appointing a high priest, Hao was rather hesitant, as he didn't want to deal with someone he didn't like. He ultimately settled on NEO, whom he felt a connection to due to tha fact that NEO had similarly abandoned his plans after the heroes talked him into a Heel Realization.
  • Hao frequently visits the Houses of Ambiguity and Philosophy in order to study and observe the various aspects of morality. As such, he took an interest in Cosmos, Melkor, YHVH and Lucifer, as they each represent the Four Cardinal Moral Alignments that form the cores of all philosophies.
    • Cosmos adviced him to spare humanity, appealing to the goodness within Hao and reminding him of the time that he resurrected Yoh, Anna and Hana after they had been killed. Hao merely replied that, although he had let go of his hatred, he still wasn't entirely convinced that ordinary humans would be able to improve themselves in time and remarked that he had only resurrected his family because Anna had blackmailed him.
    • Melkor told him to proceed with his original goal and then rule over the surviving shamans, stating that Hao had been right in judging ordinary humans as being unworthy of continued survival. Although he admittedly still dislikes humans, Hao replied that his original plan was based on what was basically a petty grudge and that he refuses to return to his old ways.
    • YHVH stated that the only way to achieve true stability and order is to subject everyone to his will. Hao outright rejected the idea, as he has no intention of eliminating free will and prefers convincing people to join him willingly.
    • Lucifer explained his desire to create a world with absolute freedom where all sentient beings would be free to do as they pleased. While Hao agrees that free will should be preserved, he does not agree with Lucifer's extremeness, as he believes that order should be preserved as well.
  • He once had a rather interesting encounter with both Nyarlathotep and Philemon, the living embodiments of all the evil and goodness of humanity. He didn't particularly like either one, as Nyarlathotep kept trying to tempt him into returning to his evil ways and Philemon annoyed him with his God's Hands Are Tied policy and his general disaffection with his champions.
  • Other deities that have drawn his interest include Ryoji Mochizuki, Izanami and Yaldaboath. Ryoji's status of being the Nyx Avatar and the Anti Anti Christ is something that Hao finds rather intriguing, given that Ryoji doesn't remember being the Nyx Avatar and doesn't want to use his abilities to end the world, which contrasts with Hao's previous goal of deliberately trying to wipe out ordinary humans. Izanami's inhuman morality similarly fascinates him due to the fact that she almost wiped out humanity through an Assimilation Plot due to a misunderstanding of what humans desire. It gives him an appreciation for his human origin, preventing him from making a similar mistake as Shaman King. Yaldabaoth's desire to subjugate humanity under his "guidance" and his status as the Treasure of Mementos, representing humanity's desire for a savior who would guide them to utopia, is something that Hao ultimately finds undesirable, as he still wants people to change for the better by their own free will, rather than having it be forced upon them.
  • Hao is also fascinated by Galeem and Dharkon, the duelling manifestations of order and chaos. He found it interesting that the two not only fought each other but were willing to capture and force others to fight for them as well. The fact that neither of the two is benevolent or seemingly interested in the welfare of other beings reminded Hao of the hatred that he used to feel towards humanity and he remarked that Galeem and Dharkon are both consumed by a similar hatred towards each other.
  • His reunion with Yoh and Anna was rather awkward, given their history and the fact that he had previously resurrected them after Anna blackmailed him. After Yoh gave a friendly greeting and Anna aloofly acknowledged his presence, Hao remarked that, in spite of their past together, he was genuinely happy to see them and wouldn't mind visiting them from time to time.
  • Hao managed to strike up something of a friendship with Naoki Kashima and Yamato Hotsuin. Naoki's contemplative nature and their respective accomplishments provide a good source for conversation and the two are occasionally seen playing puzzle games or even having friendly sparring matches. Similarly, Yamato's goal to create a fair world where everyone gets exactly what they deserve appealed to Hao and resulted in the two getting along pretty well.
  • He's on good terms with Doctor Doom, who similarly wishes to create a better world. Hao was curious as to whether or not Doom would try to obtain his power, as Doom has a history of stealing power from cosmic beings for himself. However, Doom assured him that he has no intention of doing so now that he's undergone a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Hao gets along quite well with Avatar Aang and Captain Planet, as they share his desire to protect nature. Neither is particularly comfortable with Hao's former villainy, but are happy that he's willing to give humanity a chance to improve themselves. Hao is rather impressed by their respective mastery over the elements, which is similar to his own. He was also surprised to learn about Aang's ability to reincarnate, although Aang can't directly remember his past lives and neither can he directly pass on his own memories to his successor, Korra.
  • Hao managed to befriend King Arthur Pendragon after hearing about how Arthur intended to wish on the Holy Grail in order to create a utopia where everything would be peaceful and there would be no suffering. However, Arthur eventually abandoned this ideal in the First Holy Grail War after a conversation with a young Ayaka Sajyou made him understand that he didn't need to spend his days mourning his Britain and trying to undo the past. Hao was rather surprised by how similar their experiences were and the two spent an afternoon having a pleasant conversation. They have remained on good terms ever since.
  • Surprisingly, Hao managed to befriend Q and the Outsider due to the fact that all three have a shared interest in observing humans and their morality. Q tends to be rather critical of how Hao's hatred nearly resulted in him wiping out all ordinary people, which Hao has acknowledged as a valid criticism. The Outsider views Hao as a kindred spirit, as they had both suffered cruelty at the hands of humans at a young age, which resulted in both of them developing a dislike for humanity. The three of them are occasionally seen together in various locations throughout the pantheon, which tends to make people worry that they might be up to something.
  • Due to his past as a Super Supremacist, Amon and the equalists strongly oppose Hao and view him as one of their biggest enemies. Hao is rather amused by their attempts to attack him, which haven't really amounted to anything.
  • Hao strongly dislikes the House of Commerce, as he views money as the primary reason behind the corruption in society. He refuses to use it and had his group follow the philosophy of being completely self-sufficient, even if it meant stealing something to obtain it. However, Hao's disdain is primarily focused on those that use their money for evil purposes. As such, good and neutral deities within the house generally manage to stay on his good side.
  • Hao was rather surprised to learn of an alternate universe in which he was noticably more villainous. He was particularly impressed by the fact that the Yoh of that universe actually managed to kill him by somehow gathering the necessary power. Although regarded as a victory, Hao pointed out that, if that had actually happened to him, he would have simply reincarnated again 500 years later and would have been even stronger, making his victory inevitable.
  • Upon learning of the Throne of Heroes, a place existing outside of both the World and the time axis where Heroic Spirits reside, he compared it to the inside of the Great Spirit, where he and previous Shaman Kings reside and where only people Hao wishes to enter may come. Hao was also surprised by how much the Holy Grail Wars resemble the Shaman Fights, as they're also intense battle royales between proficient magi meeting in battle in order to claim the Holy Grail, an artifact purportedly capable of granting any wish to whoever acquires it. Overall, Hao is quite fascinated by the Holy Grail Wars but is also rather irritated by the fact that the winning pair has to be very specific with their wording when wishing upon the grail in order to for their wish to be granted, whereas the Shaman Fights don't feature such inconvenience.
  • Hao was amused to discover his Japanese voice sounds like those of Pai Chan, Axl and Kiki. However, aside from this, Hao isn't particularly interested in interacting with any of them.

    Lucemon 
Lucemon, Representative of Those Like Satan (Lucemon Falldown/Chaos Mode, Lucemon Satan/Shadowlord Mode, Lucemon Larva)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucemon_collectors.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The tattoos on the left side of his body (including the Digital Hazard on his left hand); the Crest of Pride
  • Theme Song: "Lucemon's Theme"
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Evil light-using (also darkness in higher forms) Fallen Angel, mon version of Lucifer/Satan, wanting to eliminate free will and make all beings worship him, conducting the Digital World's destruction to remake it into his ideal, Order Is Not Good, rather cute for how evil he is, increasingly monstrous evolutions
  • Domains: Mons, Data, Angels, Light, Darkness, Order, Megalomania
  • Allies: YHVH and the Grand United Alliance of Law (sort of), Zamasu, Malthael, some Numemon
  • Enemies: Digimon deities in general, particularly Koichi Kimura and Beelzemon, Lloyd Irving (and his friends), Lucifer, Aleph, Satan, Rin Okumura, Yamato Hotsuin, Eliphas, Tensou Sentai Goseiger
  • Evil Counterpart to: Giratina
  • Looks down on: Everyone, but special mention to the other Satans and Lucifers in the Pantheon
  • Lucemon is formerly a benevolent angel Digimon who brought order and peace in a time when chaos reigned. After either an attempt at a rebellion against him or his own powers corrupting him (maybe both; accounts are conflicting), Lucemon became a tyrant obsessed with making everyone bend to his will. Lucemon was brought down (some say by the Warrior Ten), sealed and his powers split between three angel Digimon.
  • It's fairly obvious that Lucemon is supposed to be the Digimon version of the devil, the ultimate bad guy according to the Bible, himself. Even Lucemon's name comes from Lucifer, and the more he evolves, the more his Satanic qualities come out: Falldown Mode is a being part-angel, part-demon supposed to represent himself after falling as an angel, while Satan Mode, a mindless dragon of darkness commanded by a larva, seems based on the the Beasts and Dragon of Revelation at once. Thus he was judged an excellent choice for representing Satanic Archetype.
  • With a history like that, it's obvious that few to no Digimon actually want Lucemon to succeed, except perhaps some of the more Knight Templarish iterations of the Royal Knights as he did have LordKnightmon and Dynasmon at his service. Even then, it's suspected that Lucemon had them corrupted, and in the end he absorbed their data as thanks anyway. Omegamon and Dukemon certainly aren't up for serving him and will fight him for the sake of protecting both worlds from his tyranny.
    • Koichi Kimura fought Lucemon directly as the Warrior of Darkness. Very appropriately, Koichi's pure dark powers proved instrumental in stopping Lucemon's corrupted light and darkness, even if Koichi had to temporarily die in the process. Now that Koichi can evolve into Rhihimon, he has more of a chance in staving off Lucemon's advances.
    • Lucemon in Falldown Mode can be considered a member of the Seven Great Demon Lords, where he represents the sin of pride. Beelzemon is also part of this group, however this doesn't really matter in the Pantheon as both Digimon consider themselves independent from that group, and they feel nothing but mutual contempt for each other, with Lucemon seeing Beelzemon as another chaotic element in the way of his perfect world, and Beelzemon will beat down the fallen angel if he objects to his chosen way of living.
    • There are some (but not all) Numemon who find a world of order and equality to be an attractive prospect, since Numemon are arguably the most hated and discriminated Digimon. Lucemon personally finds them disgusting and plans to get rid of those mistakes of evolution when his ideal world is realized. But he'll accept their support for now as they might prove to be of some use.
  • Ironically, for all his connections to the classic Lucifer/Satan figure, Lucemon's philosophy and goals are diametrically opposed to those of the most active Lucifer incarnation in the Pantheon, the Chairman of the GUAC. Whereas Lucifer wants to create a world of chaos where everyone is free to do as they wish, Lucemon believes what the world needs is rigid order and that everyone should worship him and look to him for guidance, going as far as thinking it'd be best to just destroy and rebuild the world and populate it with mindless clones programmed to see him as leader. It goes without saying that Lucemon and Lucifer are bitter enemies. Looking into the Digital World for a philosophical counter to Lucemon, Lucifer learned of Bagramon, whose ideology is chaos-aligned (though Bagramon is ironically based on the Archangel Gabriel), and the Morning Star is looking into ascending him.
    • He doesn't have a high opinion of the Lucifer that opposes the Winchester brothers either, finding it ridiculous that he's basically throwing a tantrum (best not remind Lucemon that he's just as much of a brat) because god paid more attention to humanity.
  • YHVH is more up Lucemon's alley as he represents pure law and agrees with most of Lucemon's ideas. Except for the little detail that YHVH thinks people should worship him. But overall, YHVH thinks Lucemon has his heart in the right place (by his standards) and is still a child who just needs to grow out of the idea that people would ever worship him. YHVH may have a bit of a soft spot for Lucemon as he reminds him of Lucifer back when he was his favorite angel. While Lucemon is perfectly willing to work with YHVH, that'll be only until their common goal of a world of order is achieved, and he plans to take the god of order down when that happens, so he can rule by himself, perhaps also taking over the GUAL to serve as his personal police. Satan (the one serving YHVH) may be the only one of the law faction who doesn't trust Lucemon as far as he can throw him; Lucemon is somewhat wary of the angel as his duty compels him to turn against his lawful master if needed.
  • The idea that he should have a partner due to being a mon makes him laugh. He sees himself as having the right to rule over everything, so the thought that he should submit to being someone's attack dog is amusing at best and fatally offensive at worst. Anyone who makes the suggestion has a chance of getting a Divine Feat to the face depending on his mood. Most Digimon (and Pokemon, for that matter) would say partnerships are based on friendship and that the participants are on equal footing, but Lucemon doesn't understand friendship and scoffs at the idea of anyone being equal to himself.
  • Lucemon has tried reaching out to Giratina after hearing the legendary was supposedly Satan to the Pokemon world and was also deeply interested in keeping order, hoping that their shared role in their respective universes would cause Giratina to ally with him. This couldn't be further from the truth as while Giratina is a bit too obsessed with keeping balance between dimensions so they won't clash, it's content to let all living beings do whatever as long as they don't threaten that balance, so it really doesn't want to see the world become one of pure order like Lucemon envisions. Also, Giratina is really quite sick of being perceived as evil, an impression that'd only worsen if it associated with Lucemon (doesn't help that Giratina and Lucemon Satan Mode kind of look alike). Lucemon finds this a pity, but he supposes there is always the option of using Giratina's obsessions to corrupt it.
  • Lloyd initially confused Lucemon for Yggdrasill, another corrupted angel that wanted to force an oppressive flavor of order on two worlds. Lucemon, for his part, thinks Mithos was a weakling for doing what he did motivated by love for his sister instead of personal ambition, and he's embarrassed that he was ever his High Priest. This enrages Lloyd, who considers Lucemon to be a bigger monster than Yggdrasill ever was.
  • Lucemon works very well with Zamasu for the most part, as they both want to eradicate their universes from any and all chaotic elements. They just disagree on whether the mortals should be eliminated or not. Lucemon thinks absolute elimination is going a bit too far... only because if he did that there'd be no one left to worship him. He supposes Zamasu has that attitude about mortals because Kais don't seem to be worshiped.
    • Lucemon has a very similar dynamic with Malthael; the archangel of death is at least glad that there's another angel with the same mindset as him.
  • Rin Okumura, as the unwilling son of Satan, isn't exactly glad to see yet another addition of his father's likeness to the Pantheon. Lucemon wouldn't pay him any attention if that was all, but it's quite annoying how the boy has decided to apply his vow to "kick Satan's ass" to him.
  • Lucemon finds Aleph a lot more worrying than Rin given how that boy rebelled against his role as a Messiah chosen by YHVH and was powerful enough to defeat the god of order in a certain timeline. On top of that, Aleph is in good terms with God's Arbiter, and the two are perfectly willing to work together if they decide Lucemon is going too far.
  • He actually prefers staying away from the Satans in the Pantheon, as he thinks it won't do his angelic image any favors to associate with the top demon(s) from hell, plus he considers himself above them. Granted, more people than not already hate him, so it wouldn't make much of a difference if he did associate with them.
  • For some reason Lucemon was considered a follower of Yamato Hotsuin prior to ascending, which is strange as Yamato is more chaos-aligned, wanting a world where the strong are free to do as they want. Just the fact that he was considered a mere follower is enough to enfuriate Lucemon, but to be a follower to someone with Yamato's philosophy makes Lucemon think he was trying to make him submit to harness his power, and that really makes the prideful angel Digimon go berserk.
    • He was also a follower to Eliphas. Given Eliphas turned to the more moderate law faction after starting out a radical, they don't exactly see eye-to-eye.
  • The Goseigers oppose Lucemon on account of him reminding them of their greatest enemy Brajira, the Satan analogue of their universe. Being angels themselves, the Goseigers find Lucemon presenting himself as the salvation of the digital and human worlds to be downright offensive.

    Nicol Bolas 
Nicol Bolas, Dragon God of Multiversal Conquerors
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nicol_bolas.jpg
  • Greater God (formerly Overdeity)
  • Symbol: A Gemstone floating between two horns
  • Alignment: Above Good and Evil (so he claims)
  • Portfolio: Agony Beam, Mind Rape, The Most Powerful Planeswalker, The Dreaded, Evil Overlord, Dragon Sorcerer, Xanatos Gambit, Oldest Planeswalker, Sorcerous Overlord, Mind Manipulation, Black Magic, Dimensional Traveler
  • Domain: Magic, Dimensional Travel
  • Allies: Arael
  • Rivals: Dormammu, Alduin, Homura Akemi, Darquesse, Ganondorf, Aizen Sousuke
  • Enemies: Ajani Goldmane, Sorin Markov, Madoka Kaname, Lord Kroak, Azir, Doctor Strange, Merlin, Io, Bahamut
  • Nicol Bolas arrived inside the Pantheon when he Planeswalked into the dimension, having sensed the immense concentration of power that resided in the Pantheon. His arrival was immediately noticed by Sorin Markov, who alerted fellow deities in the Magic Pantheon to his presence.
    • Since then, Nicol Bolas has taken to studying the nature of the Pantheon and the various users of Magic within it.
  • Nicol Bolas is an immensely old and immensely powerful Planeswalker, one of the few still living from the days when Planeswalkers were powerful enough to be considered Gods, even able to create their own days. But with The Mending, Nicol Bolas lost that power and immortality he once possessed, and he set various machinations in place to reclaim that power. He hopes his plans in the Pantheon will lead to that conclusion.
  • Nicol Bolas once dared to confront Arael, desiring to know what kind of powers the Angel possessed. Unfortunately, Nicol Bolas was able to strike up an alliance with Arael (Bolas would never indulge in 'friendship'), because Nicol Bolas shared a propensity for shattering minds with but a touch with Arael.
  • Very few in the Pantheon are able to match Nicol Bolas in terms of magical power, even though his powers are not what they once were. Before the Mending, he was essentially a God within the Multiverse, able to create entire planes which he ruled, immortal, and able to use magic with effects on a Multiversal level. Now, he has lost that power with the nature of the Planeswalker spark changing, but he seeks to regain that power by any means necessary.
  • He has his eyes set on Homura Akemi, as he believes that he could steal her power to restore himself back to his past glory. As such, many of the Good-aligned deities in the Pantheon stand against him and his ambitions, particularly Madoka Kaname.
    • If not, then he can always try to take the Hogyoku from Aizen, and use it to give him immortality and restore his power. After all, such an item is more suited for his hands than a mere Soul Reaper who plays at being a God.
  • He also has rivalries against many of the powerful Evil-aligned magic users in the Pantheon, particularly Darquesse, whom he sees as a dangerous hinderance to his plans.
  • He begrudgingly acknowledges Io as being the progenitor of his own race of dragons, but that only drives Nicol Bolas' ambition to reclaim his powers not only so that he can regain his own strength, but surpass and usurp Io as well. He will have none who are above him, Dragon or otherwise.
  • He has shown an interested in in other deities who can summon creatures and spells to do their bidding through cards, as it reminds him of certain Outer Beings who play as Planeswalkers in another plane of existence.
  • He is aware of the how the Pantheon came to be, as he once hijacked a page on the Magic The Gathering site to explain the rules of the game based on his multiverse.note

    Shiro Kanzaki 
Shiro Kanzaki, Patron Saint of Main Villains Who Don't Battle (Shiro Takami, Mirror Shiro, Master of the Rider War)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8b95797e1c8e7010da6142114627c92f.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Odin Advent Deck
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Dead All Along (maybe), actually became a Mirror World being, Well-Intentioned Extremist, The One Who Chooses His Potential Participants in his Rider Fight Through Nefarious Means, Non-Action Big Bad, Invincible Villain, Not So Stoic, Stealth Hi/Bye, The Unfettered, Reality Warper, Knight Templar Big Brother
  • Domains: Mirrors, Death, Tragedy
  • Heralds: Yui Kanzaki (his sister and Morality Pet), Kamen Rider Odin (his representative rider), and Gold Phoenix (Odin's Contract Monster)
  • Allies: Takatora Kureshima, Yuno Gasai
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Shinji Kido/Kamen Rider Ryuki, Ren Akiyama/Kamen Rider Knight, Shuichi Kitaoka/Kamen Rider Zolda.
  • Enemies: Takeshi Asakura/Kamen Rider Ouja, Masashi Sudo/Kamen Rider Scissors, Kyubey, Gendo Ikari, Sou Fueki, Junko Enoshima and Monokuma, Ghetsis Harmonia, Lady Tremaine, Heihachi Mishima, Sofia Lamb, The Dahaka, Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash. SHOCKER
  • Neutral Counterpart to: Ryoma Sengoku
  • Conflicting Opinion: Homura Akemi, Yui Ikari
  • Opposed by: Katniss Everdeen, Jimmy Neutron, other Deadly Game participants, Odin
  • Shiro Kanzaki was the mastermind behind the Rider War where 13 people chosen by him and given fight each other to the death for one wish granted. But not once did he engage in combat with any of them; that was done through Kamen Rider Odin.
    • No, despite the image, Odin is not Shiro, but rather some random schmuck who was given the Odin Advent Deck by him and brainwashed upon taking the deck. The real Odin isn't amused with this.
    • Compared to other Kamen Riders, Odin is…Purposely Overpowered. Combined with constant Flash Steps and ridiculous strength to compensate for his lack of skill, Kamen Rider Odin is not someone any Intermediate God-level deity or weaker should face. And should Kamen Rider Odin die, Shiro can just retrieve the deck and give it to some other schmuck. To avoid much flak from the good guys, he's decided to use Asshole Victims no one would miss.
    • Since some of those happen to be followers of Swim Swim, being the trope representative of it and all, he runs the risk of making an enemy out of her. Even if she doesn't care much for anything other than being like Ruler, accidentally seeing her civilian form would mean eternal enmity with her.
  • Because of his…neglectful parentage (being locked up in the attic for extended periods of time with his sister Yui), which resulted in her death and why he started The Rider War in the first place, Shiro opposes any and all abusive parents. Instigating events that may create more people like him is the last thing he wants, no matter how unlikely that scenario would be.
  • Shinji, Ren, and Kitaoka, having been victims of his war, don't like dealing with him any more than is necessary. Asakura on the other hand is pissed at Shiro for stopping the War in the first place and because he won't grant his wish anymore. And Shiro opposes Sudo for kidnapping Yui for his own schemes.
  • Having orchestrated a Deadly Game once before, he has earned the contempt of such participants like Katniss Everdeen. Shiro knows there's nothing he can do to make up to them for this.
  • His constant time-resetting in order to save his sister has garnered him the animosity of the Dahaka. Shiro also hates Reverse-Flash for doing everything he can to screw people over through changing history.
    • As for Homura, though, who had done the exact same thing he did to save Madoka, only she does things herself rather than rope in other people, he's not sure what he should think. On one hand, she eventually succeeded in a sense. On the other hand, she's unhealthily obsessed with keeping her safe, as he once had, and he knows why that's a bad thing.
      • He opposes Gendo Ikari for the same reasons he has conflicting opinions on Homura, mainly because he's been very abusive to not only his creation Rei Ayanami, but also his own son, who also happens to be named Shinji. He's not sure what to say regarding Gendo's wife Yui, though, especially since she manipulated her son, too.
  • Surprisingly got along with Yuno Gasai, since they both know what it was like to be overly protective of who they care about; Yuno killing anybody who looked Yukiteru's way that she didn't like, and Shiro starting the whole Rider War to save Yui from her inevitable death.
  • Both Ryoma and Shiro are scientists who created their Rider equipment and gave these powers to individuals for their own agendas. Neither like that they have that in common, and Shiro has vowed to stop the amoral scientist (and Takatora Kureshima has offered his help); that man's only after his own interests, while Shiro did what he did all for his sister. The fact that his kill-switch can affect his Kamen Rider Odin is one of many other reasons.

    The Black Knight 
The Black Knight, God of Knights in Dark Armor (The Rider of Daein, BK, Sinister General, General Zelgius, Jet-Black General)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/black_knight_8.png
The Black Knight's true identity 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His blessed black armor and the sacred Alondite
  • Theme Song: The Black Knight (Lives) and Against the Black Knight/Unstoppable Destiny, Zelgius The Brave, and The Strong when not in armor.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil though he fluctuates between that and Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Seeking a worthy foe, Being Ike's rival, Being a extremely hard fight, Extremely fast and hitting really hard, Friendly despite being a antagonist, Being feared by many, Is a Branded, Wielding a sword and armor blessed by a Goddess, The Enforcer with his own motives
  • Domains: Knight, Dark Armor, Mystery
  • Allies: Esdeath
  • Worthy Opponents: Chrom, Lyndis, Xander, Ryoma, Guts, Lancelot, Gawain
  • Enemies: Grima, Jafar, The Other Black Knight, Griffith
  • Rivals: Arthas
  • Pities: Jaime Lannister, Artorias
  • Opposed by: His rival, Ike
  • One of the feared Rider of Daein, the Black Knight was a dread warrior for his power and blessings. His identity was a pure mystery, but his motive has always been to best his master, Greil, at his full strength.
  • None knows of who the Black Knight outside of his armor is, save for few like Ike. He was General Zelgius, the commander of the Begnion army and right-hand man to Sephiran. He once trained under the leadership of General Gawain, now known as Greil, and dream of besting the greatest swordsman in all of Tellius. And for your own safety, don't even think about asking him of who he truly is. All he respond is a silent but ominous glare.
    "Curious as to who I am? You're better off not knowing, or perhaps even asking."
  • Despite seeking many worthy opponents, the Black Knight has made it clear that only Ike is worthy enough to to be the one to slay him. This is because Ike is the son of Greil, whom the Black Knight thought was a Worthy Opponent once and slew in combat. The real reason is that Zelgius was his pupil and wanted to fight Greil at his full power but was unaware Greil had lost the use of his sword arm. Ike, being Greil's son, is not the only person left who he feels can give him that fight he desires. Needless to say, he was quite happy to see Ike had ascended before him, though the Black Knight has been prevented from fighting him by others in the Pantheon.
  • Despite his loyalty being unknown to everyone save a few people, he despises Grima for how destructive it is and how it cares little for a challenge. In fact he refused to fight for most factions among the Pantheon's unless they bring better challenges.
  • Upon hearing of the tales of Artorias, the Black Knight attempted to challenge the once heroic knight only to learn he had fallen to the Abyss. To say the Black Knight was disappointed would be putting it lightly.
    • Similarly he was impressed with the stories he heard of Jaime Lannister but disappointed to learn of Jamie's lost of his sword-hand, making him no less of a real challenge like what happened to his master.
  • He once encountered a Black Knight who was guarding a bridge (a small plank over a small stream). The Knight essentially blocked the Horseman from passing through until he face him in a duel in which he obviously emerge victorious with the bastards only by his torso and head. The Black Knight found the guard to be so weak and arrogant that he didn't bother to consider killing him, disregarding his taunts.
  • Gets along pretty well with Esdeath since they both seek a fight and care little for the state of their rulers. The Black Knight has warned Esdeath that her obsession with Tatsumi is dangerous though she brushed it off.
  • The Black Knight donned a black armor that was blessed by the goddess Ashera which makes him impervious to many mortal weapons, saved for other blessed weapons. Although the blessing doesn't last long as years later, he is now capable of harm, to which he could be hit with an armor-breaking hammer, but even then, good luck with fighting him.
  • As stated, face him at your own peril. the Black Knight is extremely strong and extremely fast for a sturdy knight. Even Ike had difficulty in facing him in a duel without the use of Aether. In addition, the Black Knight's specialized technique, known as Eclipse, that allows him to strike against his foes at his full power. It has even been reported to kill even gods without proper protection!
  • Upon hearing about a knight named Gawain, he thought it was his master who he had defeated. He encountered Sir Gawain who is nothing like his master but Gawain saw him as a worthy challenge considering how laughable his duel with the other Black Knight was. The Black Knight was amazed by his power as he believes him to be his master at his strength.
  • Even as the Black Knight, he shows some disdain toward corrupt officials. Outside of his armor, he knows of the corruption of the Begnion senators and he has no patience for that, even as the Black Knight.
  • Though the Knight doesn't bring it up, he is one of the Branded, a product of a Beorc-Laguz relationship. Because of the discrimination he faced, he is always wearing armor even out of battle.
  • People are conspicuous of any empty houses as sometimes the Black Knight is known to appear from nowhere. The fact that the Black Knight possess warp powder to teleport him to any destination may not help, though at the cost of weakening after use and may have to wait for a time to regain one's strength. Despite this, the appearance of the Black Knight is a startle.

    Khan Noonien Singh 
Khan Noonien Singh, God of Villains Named After the Great Conqueror (John Harrison, The Most Dangerous Adversary the Enterprise Ever Faced, KHAAAAAAAAAAANNNNN!!!)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tos_khan_4159.jpg
Prime Reality Khan
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/khan_noonien_singh_alternate_reality.jpg
Alternate Reality Khan
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A picture of Marla McGivers or a pod of one of his brethren
  • Theme Song: Ode to Harrison
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Breakout Villain with an awesome name, Faux Affably Evil, Wicked Cultured, Tragic Villain, The Chessmaster, Evil Overlord, Genius Bruiser, in a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against his Arch-Enemy, Hero Killer, ultimately a Walking Spoiler
  • Domains: Evil, Void, Strength, Knowledge
  • Allies: General Thrawn, Genghis Khan, General Tarquin, Barbatos Goetia, Sauron, most in the House of Vengeance
  • Enemies: Captain Kirk, McCoy, Spock, Jean-Luc Picard, Worf, Honor Harrington, John Sheridan
  • Opposes: Doctor Strange, Sherlock Holmes
  • Opposed by: The Count of Monte Cristo, Tokiya Mikagami
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Shogo Makishima
  • Pities: Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze
  • Among Kirk's enemies, there is one name the God of Space won't dare forget. Khan had yet to enter the Pantheon at the time, much to the concern of the Enterprise crew. Indeed, Khan had a plan in store. He would enter the Pantheon as a Commander of Starfleet and would take his revenge on his Archenemy. Unfortunately, everyone in the temple saw his agenda a mile away. But by the time Kirk drove him out, he had already discovered that Khan had successfully entered the Pantheon. Kirk did not take this development well.
    Kirk: .....KHAAAAAAAAAAANNNNN!!!
  • There has been two versions of the character and yet both are motivated by surprising acts of love. The original version fell in love with Marla McGivers, who together ruled Ceti Alpha V for a brief time before her death. The rebooted version wanted to save his crew members from stasis. Both versions are fueled by revenge and want nothing better than the death of Kirk and his crew.
  • That extends to all of his allies and there are a lot of them, which infuriated them further. He proceeded to set a trap on Picard's crew, marooning them on a planet just as he did to Kirk. Luckily, other pilots were aware of his tactics and got him out shortly afterwards. Kirk has warned all of his allies to be wary of the man.
  • Next, he tried to take over a sizable chunk of Honor Harrington's fleet... and succeeded. She call help from friendly fleets from all over the Pantheon to quash the mutiny. Khan is now near the top of her wanted list.
  • John Sheridan has made sure to secure his nuclear arsenal after Khan attempted to hack into his entire system to target the House of Heroes.
  • Found plenty of allies in the House of Vengeance. Most of them were willing to help him get vengeance on Kirk... all except the God of Revenge himself. The Count pleaded with Khan not to let revenge destroy him just as it destroyed his mortal life. Same goes for Tokiya Mikagami, but it was drowned out by Ren Hakuryuu's encouraging words. Thus Khan's plan of revenge continues unabated.
  • Has a terrifying reputation. In the past, he managed to rule much of earth during the late 20th century. In both timelines, he's proven to be a genius-level intellect and strong enough to defeat any regular human in a fight. He even managed to cause the death of Spock in the original timeline and Kirk in the reboot. Cosmos won't take him lightly. Barbatos Goetia coincidentally nodded in approval.
  • Thrawn is a huge fan of his works, impressed with his tactics despite living in an earlier time period. He lamented that his inexperience in space combat cost him his life. He invited Khan to his temple to get him up to speed.
  • Great lengths were made to make sure that Khan and Tarquin never meet with each other in the Pantheon. A duo of those two's calibur could wreck havoc on the GUAG. After some initial success, the two stated they have met 35 days ago. All of those days were just to exhaust their resources.
  • It was inevitable that Khan met his namesake and the one who gave him his godhood in the first place. It was the Mongol ruler that picked him out of various other people named after him to become his disciple. The Star Trek Khan respects the man as a result. He also took a few manuscripts Temujin wrote in his mortal life.
  • Doctor Strange did not like his approval as did most good deities, but he did see a unique opportunity. His Avatar played Khan in the rebooted era and it had mixed opinions. Strange knew that mocking Khan in his avatar would piss him off, and thus cause him to make mistakes.
    • While Holmes is above mocking Khan of Cumberbatch's performance, he saw another advantage. Namely to use it as a disguise to infiltrate the GUAE. A time may come when Khan is forced to stop using that avatar as cover.
  • Has said to have come straight out of the temple of Sauron. The Evil Overlord was proud of Khan's achievements in the 20th century, wishing he had succeeded in killing Kirk. But being a deity helps things out, giving him more power to help out Khan.
  • Has managed to form an alliance with Shogo Makishima of all people. The white haired villain does not trust that Khan won't create a Totalitarian Utilitarian but did admire Khan's desire to create a better society. With that said, it may be only a matter of time before this alliance collapses.
  • Unlike most villains, Khan has not berated Mr. Freeze for fulling embracing villainy. He only wishes that he could use that sadness to get revenge on the company that cut his funding.

    Naoya 
Naoya, God of Biblical Villains (Naoya Minegishi, Cain)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/naoya_render.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His long robe with its Matrix Raining Code design
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Aloof Older Brother, reincarnation of Cain to Kazuya's Abel, The Chessmaster, Crazy-Prepared, Deadpan Snarker, unnerving smile, Expy of Akemi Nakajima, morally ambiguous albino, Hidden Agenda Maybe-Villain, Jerk with a Heart of Gold to his cousin, Stealth Mentor, Nay-Theist, Rage Against the Heavens, suffered The Punishment and exploited it for his own end, Fate Worse than Death, "Get Back Here!" Boss
  • Domains: Coding, Demons, Sin, Chaos, Gambits
  • High Priest: Judas Iscariot
  • Followers: The Phantom Stranger, Grendel, the Knights of the Blackened Denarius, Lucyfar, Nimrod, Haman
  • Allies: Kazuya Minegishi (his cousin), Mido
  • Rivals: Alcor, Yamato Hotsuin
  • Enemies: YHVH and all of His Angels, especially Metatron, The Administrators, the Divine Powers, Chakravartin, Yaldabaoth, anyone who would harm Kazuya
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Cosmos (only on his end), Isabeau (only on her end)
  • Wary of: Stephen
  • Respects: Aleph, Naoki Kashima/the Demi-Fiend, Flynn, Asura, Xena, Tatsuya Suou, Maya Amano, Eikichi Mishina, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, Terra Branford, Team Dai-Gurren
  • His ascension was preceded by a massive influx of demons coming in from COMPs that came out of nowhere. While the nearby folks either fled or fought the demons, as soon as he heard of it, Kazuya was quick to arrive and quell the issue, then convince the Court of the Gods (which Naoya didn't really like) to give him a spot in the Pantheon. After looking into his history, they decided to give him two temples to represent Biblical Bad Guy, given that he's the reincarnation of said first example; Cain.
  • Has a tenuous stance towards his cousin, given that he either fled the lockdown only to return to make up for that mistake (succeed or fail), surrendered the world to either demons (with his cousin Naoya, and rally against YHVH either for himself or for humanity) or angels (with Amane, and set Naoya on the path to redemption), returned the world back to normal with Gin, or gave the demon summoning power to humanity with Atsuro. Of the timelines he doesn't approve of, there's only the ones where he fled and the ones where he surrendered to the angels.
    • That said, given how different things are in the Pantheon, with Kazuya as King of Bel around here, he's willing to let bygones be bygones as he's got a bigger priority; his vengeance against God, a.k.a. YHVH. Despite that, though, he doesn't care much for Lucifer and the GUAC. But while Kazuya is currently sided with Cosmos, Naoya isn't the type to follow anyone; his loyalties are only to his cousin, and nothing more.
    • Why does he hate YHVH so much? Well, given that he's a reincarnation of Cain, every time he reincarnates, he remembers everything from every single past life, including the one where he killed his brother Abel out of jealousy. Thus, he is thus unable to escape his sin. The sad thing is that Cain could break this cycle by using the time to reflect on — and repent for — his sin, but he's far too consumed by revenge to do so. This is because, God set up the Cain and Abel scenario in the first place in order to get a murderer and a martyr. Cain feels that he was unfairly manipulated into killing his brother by an unjust God, and thus refuses to atone to a God that used him in such a manner.
    • That said, he would let go of his vengeance if YHVH just left the world alone. Of course, this is impossible in the Pantheon.
    • In regards to vengeance against YHVH, he has respect for those who've successfully killed Him or performed similar feats against other tyrannical or otherwise malevolent deities, such as Aleph, the Demi-Fiend, Asura, Xena, the Persona 2 heroes, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, and Terra Branford. The same doesn't go for the likes of Merged Zamasu, Majin Buu (even Fat Buu), and Darkseid, though.
  • He's heard of other possible Cains around the Pantheon.
    • One is Vandal Savage, who may have been Cain and just forgot over the millenia. Except he apparently wasn't Cain at all; he just "stole" the Mark of Cain from a man who was passed it by the original Cain.
    • Another is Commander Kane…who is apparently his world's Cain…
    • Having heard various records, Ezio was surprised that Naoya was of a Chaotic stance as his world's Cain founded the very Lawful Templar Order. Naoya isn't amused with that irony.
  • Having battled three Biblical Bad Guys over the course of her adventures, Vampirella is keeping a sharp eye on him. She also feels a little conflict as the Cain in her world was her father.
  • His Comminucation Players, also known as COMPs, are an amazing invention. Aside from the demon summoning thing, it comes with a "harmonizer" program which, without getting technical, allows simple humans to fight on equal terms with SMT demons, and it also protects humans without supernatural defenses against them too. In addition, it has an auction site where demons can be contracted, and a Cathedral of Shadows app for demon fusion. Also, somehow, it uses the internet as a repository of emotions for demon summoning. He's not sharing or selling, though, and will fight anyone who tries to have a go at it, though he's aware that some particularly talented thieves like Carmen Sandiego can take one of his COMPs if they ever so wish and there'd be nothing he can do about it.
    • Naoya's taken an interest in Alcor's Nicaea phone app, Aleph's COMP, Samurai Gauntlets, and the DEMONICAs, since they likely have other methods because the internet is normally inaccessible in their settings.
    • Kazuya's been trying to convince Naoya to have the COMPs be placed in the Treasury if he's that concerned about it being stolen, but progress is slow.
  • Makoto Yuki raised an eyebrow upon hearing him speak; Naoya sounded just like one of his Social Links, Akinari Kamiki. Naturally, Kotone also felt the same way.
    • Naoya notes his brother's co-deity partner Hibiki can sound just like him. Maybe that's why the two managed to get along pretty quickly.
    • Speaking of voices, he's noted that same thing from Izaya Orihara, Lex Luthor, and Trafalgar Law.
    • Isabeau thought she heard the voice of one of her former fellow Samurai Jonathan, and wasn't sure what to think of the Chaotic-stanced programmer as Jonathan was decidedly Lawful. She doesn't trust him, but his desire for vengeance against YHVH (as well as how he cares for Kazuya) means he can be at least trusted on that regard.
    • N doesn't like Naoya, since—apart from sharing voices—he exploits his brother just as his "father" Ghetsis exploited him, even if Naoya honestly believes what he did is for Kazuya's own good.
  • Naoya had to hold back a short laugh when he realized the boisterous Kamina sounded just like him. He also respects the rest of Team Dai-Gurren for their defiance of and defeating the Anti-Spiral.
    • As do Kazuya Mishima, Big the Cat, Miles Edgeworth, Ryu, Omega-Xis, and Wario, though minus the laugh.
    • Tsubaki feels conflicted around him since he sounds like her brother Masamune.
      • The same can be said for Madoka, especially since it's her father's voice she hears from him. As for his opinion on the whole Great Upheaval thing, he's keeping his eye on Homura, whose militant desire to protect Madoka to the point that she would even take her powers away so she can't do anything disgusts him.
    • The Investigation Team (sans Naoto) get the feeling that they've heard his voice before. Then it clicked; get past the calm and slick manner of speaking, and they're reminded of their first suspect in Inaba's murder cases; Mistuo Kubo.
  • Looking back at the time his COMPs were distributed, giving everybody in a locked-down Tokyo a chance to become a demon tamer, he finds it somewhat amusing that there is something similar in the Pantheon, though with Guardian Entities called Personas instead of demons. And that Kazuya was one of their "clients".
    • Speaking of which, Kazuya decided to take him along on a trip there, just the two of them, in hopes of understanding his cousin more. Having had to live with himself for millennia, Naoya decided to humor him. After that trip, …let's just say those who would later visit the Persona Gallery would be surprised to see Naoya's picture among the rest.
  • "God's no friend of mine/I follow no god."

    SCP-2006 
SCP-2006, The God Who's More Dangerous Than He Seems (Too Spooky)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_robotmonster5_7477.jpg
SCP-2006 in the form of Ro-Man.
  • Intermediate God, Keter by SCP standards
  • Symbol: Its default form of a sphere 50 cm in diameter
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Shapeshifter, Affably Evil, Scaring For The Heck Of It, Comical Keter Class, In-Universe Nightmare Retardant, Harmless Villain...Only Because He's Not Aware What's REALLY Scary, Implacable Man, B-Movie, May Just Be Humoring The Foundation
  • Domains: Narm, Shapeshifting, Anomalies, Scares
  • Followers: Etemon, The Top, Onimi, Clownpiece
  • Under watch by: The SCP Foundation
  • Banned from: The Houses of Fear, Knowledge, Otherness and War
  • Allies: Spooky, Ed Wood, Erma
  • Interests: Thaal Sinestro, Pitch Black
  • Enemies: The Men in Black, Harry Potter, Remus Lupin, Billy, Finn the Human, Hal Jordan
  • Disappoints: Pennywise, H.P Lovecraft
  • SCP-2006, also known as Too Spooky, is a strange choice for a Keter-class SCP. It wishes to scare people for the fun of it, and can shapeshift into people's fears. However it takes the form of "scary" movie figures considered So Bad, It's Good and Nightmare Retardant. It seems Safe if anything. But this is only because SCP-2006 is tricked into thinking they're scary. It can still transform into just about anything, it just needs the knowledge to do so.
  • One of the most restricted gods in the pantheon, due to its shapeshifting powers having no limits. No-one wants this thing to learn true terror like the horror of war, nuclear annihilation or worse. If information does get out, the Men in Black try to use neuralizers to suppress that information. The Grand United Alliance of Evil is working to break out SCP-2006 and show it how to really be scary, which the Grand United Alliance of Good considers high priority to stop and keep it ignorant.
  • Of the houses it is banned, the House of Fear does their best to keep it from entering. While it can't go into that house, members of that house can still visit him. Spooky has become one of its few allies, as she feels bad that like herself SCP-2006 has difficulty scaring people despite really wanting to. Also they have "Spooky" in their names. Thankfully it didn't get the memo of its forms being Nightmare Retardant, but appreciated a fellow scarer.
  • Erma has been seen being friendly with SCP-2006. The authorities have warned to PLEASE not show it how to be scary and instead try and mimic her.
  • Both Sinestro and Pitch Black see enormous potential despite the SCP Foundation trying to cover it, Sinestro in particular wishes to harness that potential as a member of the Sinestro Corps. He's managed to get as far as giving SCP-2006 a test ring, though for know it states it prefers to show off what it can do naturally.
  • Pennywise seems at best annoyed and at worst disgusted with SCP-2006. It has the potential to be just as dangerous, if not more than itself, but is blinded to think otherwise. It considers it's Affably Evil nature a limiting factor as well. H.P Lovecraft finds Too Spooky rather disappointing given it comes from a series known for horrifying Lovecraftian monsters.
  • Kept out of the House of Knowledge to make sure it doesn't catch on, or Otherness so it doesn't think to mimic the different monsters there. Mike and Sulley believe it has the potential to supply both laughs and fears, however they're staying far away from it since it can't be trusted or expected to be a Punch-Clock Villain and simply frighten/humor children.
  • Sees B-Movie horror schlock as effect scares. It came to Ed Wood and congratulated the human on being truly terrifying, believing him to be a great horror director. The other horror directors wisely avoided it, and Ed Wood feigned gratitude. The two have formed an Odd Friendship, coming to enjoy each other's company in B-movie night. This has become a hobby of it. The MST3K crew try their best not to riff these movies in his presence.
  • One of the few beings frightened by SCP-2006 despite its narmy forms is Billy. Giant spiders are often seen in B-movies, and despite transforming into a bad rubber spider prop it was enough to trigger his arachnophobia and smash with chairs. The SCP Foundation has considered using Billy as part of the containment procedure.
  • Its' true nature is unknown, but Remus Lupin speculates it to be an incredibly powerful boggart. He made the mistake of encountering SCP-2006, who turned into his greatest fear of the Moon. As in, the actual "over a quarter the diameter of Earth" Moon. A Colony Drop was only narrowly avoided by the combined efforts of the House of Time and Space, and Gru's shrink ray being borrowed. It decided to return to "normal" when informed that if it crushed everyone as the Moon, there'd be no people to scare.
  • Finn sought to stop it, having managed to overcome his fears by slaying the Fear Feaster. SCP-2006's response was to transform into the Lich. Finn barely managed to beat it in this form, and had to be convinced that the Lich was very funny instead of the freaking Lich to re-contain it. The actual Lich hasn't dignified this with a response, only remarking he finds the SCP "pathetic".
  • Naturally it is opposed by Hal Jordan due to being an entity who seeks to frighten people. However his constructs have yet to put SCP-2006 down, nor anything the SCP Foundation has used. There's no known way to damage this monster.
  • There's a good chance that enough information has been leaked for SCP-2006 to realize what is truly scary, and he's just humoring people. He may have been aware of this from the start, and is playing the SCP Foundation.

  • Before the Darkest Dungeon, before the utterly careless acts, the Ancestor was another hedonist among the high self-indulgent society. In those days, he was not above murdering his fellow noblemen for sport but it says something when he was disturbed and disgusted by their collective depravity. The feelings weren't enough to call them out on such actions, such a thing would be hypocritical given his unsaintly nature and he wasn't willing to stop his own indulgence either. One night, a woman caught his attention amidst the other guests. Under the moon, he would kill her for sport but she would attempt to kill him first revealing her hideous form. The Ancestor survived, and in that moment he decided to serve her blood to the guests of the party, a literal Bloody Mary if you will. When the parasites masked by nobility downed it their description took a more literal turn and devoured eachother in newfound bloodlust. The Ancestor meanwhile, only took a sip but it was all it took to enlighten him of something hidden under his Estate. Abandoning the Courtyard, things soon spiraled down from there...
  • It would be a lie to say that their ascension was their first time in the Pantheon itself. Having been a side-effect of the Ancestor's ascension, many bloodsuckers slipped under his and other adventurers noses to the House of Slaughter. Seeing all the blood and flesh, it was a dream made manifest, and they swarmed the place in just a short amount of time. Such an experience can only be described as an extravagant rapture. In time, they were cast out but they came back to the Pantheon in the House of Villains and Royalty when old gates marked by a couple of blood drained bodies appeared one day. Both serve as extensions to the Courtyard in the Ancestor's Estate, greatly enlarging the place as a result of their godhood. Entering it still requires one to have an invitation of your own from a willing Gatekeeper.
    • The Courtyard became a mire after the noblemen were afflicted, the skies wreathed in a red Bloodlight that drowns out all other light. Other sources do work, but their sanctuary is fleeting in the oppressive atmosphere. The whole garden is infested and corrupted by the Crimson Curse exemplified by the architecture now decaying into the murky Earth, red boils clustering, and the place is in perpetual fog. If one is not being stung, cut, stabbed, shot, puked on or bitch slapped by vampiric aristocrats you could easily as well be mauled by the Crocodilian or be smitten under the hateful watch of the Garden Guardian. The residents seem to be keen on spreading such a curse to other places, something the Nature Preservers are vehemently against.
    The Ancestor: "Soaked and sinking, these stone terraces and sprawling gardens are the site of long forgotten revelry...and well remembered regret."
  • In their echelons, there are three bloodsuckers that stand out. Defeating them is one way of ridding oneself of the Crimson Curse, although not an immunity.
    • First is the Baron, a sadistic torturer who serves as an entertainer to the Court in both lives. For that reason he always fights in front of his fellow noblemen and hides in various eggs that nullify and sort of healing. Despite not being as large as the Viscount, he can surprisingly take a lot more damage in addition to utilizing his whip-like appendages. Though at the end of the day, he's not that much of a fighter as he relies on his durability and trickery to face his potential victims. He among other Bloodsuckers, thanks to the help of Lionel Starkweather, broke into the House of Theater were he broadcasted his special festivities to those he captured beforehand and those who are trying to stop them. Lucas Baker took notice and decided it would be best to partner up.
    The Ancestor: "It would seem his tasteful frivolity remains unabated, even now."
    • Then there's the Viscount. Defined by his gluttony, he'll eat just about anything. And we do mean anything, even his fellow noblemen. In fact, eating serves as a way for him to heal up if he's not setting up counters. Even before his tastes took a turn for the worse, he would devour any and all food even if they spoiled long since then. Probably why he's one of the few deities able to stomach Margarite Baker's cooking. His taste in food also garnered allies with Leatherface, Pudge, the Butcher, and the Flesh Eaters. They're planning on making one grand feast for the Pantheon, the planned site being in the House of Royalty. The House is trying to prevent the plan from taking place.
    The Ancestor: "The glutton's taste for morbidity is made more pronounced by his mutation."
    • Lastly is the Countess. It was her blood that produced the rest of the Court and her actions that caused the Ancestor to ruin, well, everything. Undoubtedly, her affliction has reached a later stage as she's much larger and more dangerous than when the Ancestor retaliated against her. The Countess is gargantuan, and the horror from her more grotesque form is enough to snap minds like twigs. Though, the Countess is vulnerable when trying to transform it, giving others the opportunity to wail on her. At some point, her blood was found in a couple dishes in the House of Food. Who laced it is unknown, but it caused a lot of havoc before the victims were soon restrained and cured.
    The Ancestor: "A bewitching predator slipped in amidst the swarm of tittering sycophants. Though outwardly urbane, I could sense in her a mocking thirst."
  • They quickly found out they aren't the only vampires around here and their fold quickly went to the House of Vampires. They all greatly revere Dracula, and are eager to assist him in his schemes and are quick to ally with Dio, Vanilla Ice, Mira, and Carmilla as well. They're welcome to indulge in their festivities any time. They were surprised that Carmilla did try to interact with them prior to their ascension but couldn't because of all the difficulties of trying to get to them, namely the adventurers and the non-discriminant horrors that also lurk in the Estate. Some deities theorize she may have something to do with their ascension, although no evidence backs up that claim.
  • Because they are quite capable of spreading their contagion, the Ancestor wasted no time in notifying his clients and others of their threat. The Hunter and Stroheim wasted no time in combating them, slaughtering them or turning them into swiss cheese respectively. The Joestars and Zeppelis were also quick to oppose the Court given their own experiences with the Stone Masks. While it's true they are different from the vampires of their world such as (probably) not being weak to sunlight, that hasn't really stopped them from facing the nobles. Buffy, Blade, Geralt, the Dragonborn, Maya, Alexander Anderson, and the Belmonts caught wind of their existence during their visits in the Vampires house and are also willing to bring down the vile blue bloods.
    • Of course, those who've had experiences with the dark sides of the upper class have a bone to pick with them as well. Batman is a persistent threat, having fought against the Court of Owls before, and his plans are valuable in stopping one of their more restless activity. The Court are annoyed at first, but soon laugh it off as they are interested in turning him into one of them after hearing of that time he became a vampire himself. Jak and Daxter are also thorns in their side due to their experiences with Baron Praxis, Count Veger and Duke Skyheed. Unlike the Caped Crusader, the Court only views them as but common riff raff though Jak's royal blood did improve their opinion if only a tiny bit.
    • Emperor Calus was swift in that he was quick to showing his utter distaste of their existence after their ascension. Not only arr they can utter corruption of his philosophy and lifestyle, but the fact they disgusted the Ancestor even back then is another ballpark in of itself. He made sure his Loyalists would make short work of any Bloodsucker that so much as be nearby.
    The Ancestor: "These nightmarish creatures CAN be felled. They CAN be beaten!"
  • The House of Health and Diseases have attempted to create an immunity for the Crimson Curse, although the Ancestor bluntly stated that the curse cannot be prevented by normal medicines, only cured. There are two ways in trying to cure it: Either you go ahead and slay the more monstrous entities among the Court's ranks or you procure a mysterious cure from killing the Fanatic. You don't go around finding the mad Vampire Hunter, though. If you're afflicted or are with those who are he'll come finding you. Speaking of, ever since the Crimson Court's ascension, encounters with him have drastically increased.
    The Ancestor: "A world view buttressed by dogmatic desperation invariably leads to single-minded fanaticism, and a need to do terrible things in the name of righteousness."
  • Users of blood in their combat are quick to dislike them as well, the Court only seeing glorified blood fountains. They are known to assault them whenever they can such as Carmine, Eliza, Skarlet, and Jedah Dohma. Granted, none of them are in the spectrum of good so the Court gets a pass here save for Carmine who's more of a Wild Card than anything. And speaking of blood fountains, their attention caught wind of Nadia Fortune after hearing of Eliza's plans to turn her into one too.
  • Though hallowed items like holy water could do some damage, the best results come from things that really make the parasites bleed. They hold a special enmity to those who are capable of either. Likely why they stay away from the more holier parts of the House of FAITH and outright any contact with Akujiki. Or why they outright despise Dorothea of the Wild Hunt. She shares the same sentiments after the Countess herself was gracious enough to give the alchemist a "Love Letter".
    • Taking advantage of their Blood Lust is also something to take note of. If they have no problems lacing food or sources of water with their own blood, it would be wise to return the favor. Such as when Esidisi was attacked by the Coourt but he easily goaded them into accepting his blood, of which he ignited and promptly burned them all from the inside out. The rest of their kind avoid the Pillar Men whenever they can while they in turn find the aristocrats too wild to be any of use to them.
    • Inversely, their resistance to poisons and venom is strong and you're better off using that on other horrors you encounter in the Courtyard. They don't mind the conditions in the House of Toxicity. One exception to this rule is with Akame's Murasame after she along with the rest of Night Raid decided to incapacitate the Baron. Though they still die from its curse, they somehow manage to live slightly longer than others.

  • Interested on: Heinz Windermere, The Backdraft Group
  • After the ascension of many heroic Zoids deities, and more recently the failures of Hiltz and The Backdraft Group, the most evil members from the Council of Shadows have an idea - Ascend another one of their worst enemies from Planet Zi. So they give Gunter Prozen, a former chancellor from Guylos Empire an offer: The godhood title of Treacherous Advisor. Prozen accepts.
  • Since the day that he was ascended into the Pantheon, he still hates Van and Fiona, given that they're the ones who ruined his plans. Twice, but especially in the Grand Finale, even though they weren't the ones who killed him.
    • Rosso and Viola still hates Prozen for his attempts to kill Rudolph. And the Emperor himself is no more fooled.
    • Prozen still found new enemies on the form of the Blitz Team. Thanks to Van and Fiona's previous advices, the members aren't fooled. Also, of all the members, Bit, Brad and Jamie are the most hated: Bit is a Liger-pilot similar to Van (and possibly his descendant), Brad's attitude is no different from Irvine and Jamie because the fact that he pilots aerial-type Zoids (Pteras and later Raynos) makes him no different from Rosso and Viola. Leena is sometimes also hated as she used to pilot a Dibison... the same as Thomas, one of the members from the Guardian Force.
    • And speaking of the guy himself, Thomas is not subtle on showing his hate for Prozen... independent if he's Dark Kaiser or not.
    • As for Hiltz, Prozen still hates him so much... Especialy considering that he's the one that killed him in the last fight.
    • Less bad is his situation with The Backdraft Group, as while he doesn't hate them, Prozen is dissapointed by the fact that they're mostly incompetent. That said, the fact that the organization's goals is to subvert the "Noble" concept of Zoids Battles makes them a possible pawn for his future plans. It helps that Vega, one of the members, is similar to Raven, one of Prozen's former soldiers, at least appearance-wise. He still hates Stoller, Sanders and Pierce through, not helped that the latter pilots a Storm Sworder.
    • Surprisingly, his view of Dr. Layon is neutral, likely because Prozen only sees him as an "incompetent ramen eater". On the other hand, he fully disapproves of Layon's "relationship" whit Leena, one of his enemies in the Blitz Team.
  • Prozen isn't much of a fighter, as he prefers to see his "allies" do the dirty work to him. Many gods compares him to Viridi, as both are pretty much The Unfought and relays on Mooks. However, this similarity is only superficial: While Viridi is not that heroic, she at least cares for the nature. Prozen, on the other hand, is a boderline sociopath which cares for no one but himself. It doesn't help that Viridi sounds similar to Fiona, especially considering that both are blond-haired girls and have the "power" to destroy the world.
  • Being also an Evil Chancellor himself, he allied with Prime Minister Honest and Jafar. Prozen also seems to have a rivalry with Gihren Zabi, Haman Khan, who also are villainous chancellors. Bonus points for Haman, who, like Prozen, is also a Regent for Life.
  • He is targeted by many assassin gods: Most notably, there's Night Raid, since Prozen is a corrupt nobleman who also have connections with the aforementioned Prime Minister Honest. There's also Corvo Attano, as Prozen's actions reminds him of Hiram Burrows.
  • Due to a certain incident involving Van and Fiona, Jiraiya also hates Prozen very much, due to their "similarities": Both are white-haired long-haired guys, have Facial Markings and shares the same japanese voice actor. But, there's a difference: While Jiraiya is a lovable pervert, Prozen is a dirty, rotten, and manipulative minister.
    • Many gods also comment that Prozen's theme song sounds a lot like Orochimaru. In fact, there's a rumor that Prozen has sided with Orochimaru: In exchange for the secrets of ninjutsu, Prozen will supply the former Sannin with some of the most powerful Zoids in existence to eradicate the Hidden Leaf Village. That said, there's also a good chance that he'll backstab Orochimaru after the invasion.
    • Because of that, Naruto sees Prozen as a legitimate threat in the Pantheon, especially concerning his alliance with Orochimaru.
  • The fact that he used to manipulate Prince Rudolph and trying to kill him earned the ire of many mentors in the Pantheon. Their pupils aren't too found of him, either.
  • He also gained a lot of enemies from the GUAG robot division, most notably Domon Kasshu. The hateful relationship is mutual, as Domon reminds Prozen of Irvine in a lot of things. Meanwhile, Prozen himself reminds Domon of Ulube Ishikawa, given that both believed power to be the ultimate deciding factor in life, and have used incredibly powerful and destructive machines to obtain said power.
  • Seems to have an interest on Heinz Windermere, given that he reminds him of Rudolph, the emperor from the Guylos Empire. This immediately gives Hayate (Which is also a member of the GUAG) another reason to put Prozen's name in his list of "enemies" - The other is that like Roid, Prozen is also a villainous chancellor with seeks domination.
  • Is also a rival of Cao Cao, given that he is the one with the official title of Regent for Life. As surprising as it is, Cao Cao is surprised by the fact that Prozen is one of the few people that nearly succeed in his plans of dominate Planet Zi, albeit he didn't counted with the fact that Van and Fiona defeated him. Still, the regent sees him as a enemy, rather than a rival and a Worthy Opponent.
    • Also has another rivalry with Oda Nobunaga. He's pretty impressed by the fact that he's the "Demon King Nobunaga", and that's one of the reasons why Prozen considers him his biggest rival. It helps that he's pretty much a Large Ham, not unlike Prozen himself.
  • After becoming Dark Kaiser, Prozen started recruiting some terrorists to help him further his plans. Two of them are confirmed to be Deidara and Ali Al-Saachez.

    John Wick 
John Wick, God of Retired Monsters (Baba Yaga/The Boogeyman)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2015_09_14_101056.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Photo Of His Late Wife
  • Theme Song: Story of Wick
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero In A Nice Suit, Badass Beard, Feared By The Criminal Underworld, Sharp-Dressed Man, Hitman with a Heart, Implacable Man, One-Man Army, Not So Stoic, Tattooed Crook, Would Not Shoot a Civilian
  • Domains: Cars, Hitmen, Widowers, Dogs, Russian Mafiya, Vengeance
  • Followers: Winston And Most Of The Residents Of The Continental (the hotel which caters to assassins)
  • High Priest: Arthur Bishop
  • Friendly Hitmen/Assassins: Beatrix Kiddo, Ezio Auditore, Yoh Hinomura and Emu Hino, Jackie Estacado, Gen, Cammy White
  • Allies: Revy, The Capers (although he has more in common with The Payday Crew), Kazuma Kiryu, Bryan Mills, Niko Bellic
  • Worthy Opponents: Agent 47, Sandra Wu-San/Lady Shiva
  • Commonality Connection: Neo (who is also his rival), Ted "Theodore" Logan.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: with Hotel Moscow
  • Enemies: Harm his puppy, steal his ride, or try and outright kill him, you're pretty much screwed.
  • Opposed By: Most of the House of Heroes and Justice
  • Worthy Opponent: The Spy
  • John Wick had served as High Priest to fellow ex-assassin, Beatrix 'The Bride' Kiddo. He has her to thank for his ascension to the Pantheon.
  • His first puppy, a beagle named Daisy, was a gift from his late wife to help him cope with her untimely death. It was Daisy's death which makes him declare vengeance on his former employer.
  • His arrival into the Pantheon was low-key. He pulled up to his temple in his 1969 Mustang, accompanied by his pet pitbull, Daisy II. But it was noticed by the Payday Crew, who are big fans of his work.
  • Speaking of admirers, Frank Castle is also impressed with how he handled himself. There is an unspoken agreement between the two men; so long as John remains retired from the Russian Mob, then Frank won't go after him. With this little truce, many people are unclear as to which prospect scares them more: That Castle and Wick one day find a reason to fight each other, or an excuse to team up.
  • Balalaika and Hotel Moscow are of mixed opinion in regards to John Wick. On the one hand, they are peeved over the fact that he wiped out about 70 members of the Russian Mob. On the other hand, all of this could have been avoided if Viggo handed over Iosef instead of trying to kill John. Even Balalaika thinks that Iosef was a spoiled little shit that got what was coming to him.
  • As he is a retired hitman, his temple is in the House of Crime. John is a very laid back individual and is on good terms with most of its denziens, but should you piss him off, you'll find out the hard way why he was known as Baba Yaga (The Boogeyman) in the Red Mafiya.
  • As he is a former hitman with the Russian Mob, he does have some shred of loyalty towards them, which is why he will not sign on with any other outfit.
  • Some of the other deified killers/hitmen he is on friendly terms with, such as the boss of the 108 Dragons and his wife, Ezio Auditore, and Jackie Estacado to name a few. Freeman offered him a place with the Dragons, but John politely declined, and Freeman left it at that. He is also seen at the Genhanten drinking tea with Gen.
  • Everyone tends to give him weird looks, comparing him to Neo. When John meets the man himself, it's pretty clear as why. Save for the fact that John has a beard, the resemblance is uncanny.
    • And then he learned about Ted "Theodore" Logan (who also had an uncanny resemblance to Wick). Wick has no comments on Ted Logan. NONE AT ALL.
  • He is also on friendly terms with those deities who had lost their wives/husbands/lovers, such as Kenshi, Kratos and Asura. Their friendship is helping him cope with his wife's passing.
  • After his excommunication from the Continental, John is taking refuge in the Pantheon for the time being. As much as he can, anyways.

    Needles Kane 
Needles Kane, God of Monster Clowns (Sweet Tooth, Marcus Kane, Psychopathic Clown)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sweet_Tooth.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His burning mask.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Insane
  • Portfolio: Serial Killer, Has an Ice Cream Truck, Flaming Hair, Has a paper bag as a friend, Omnicidal Maniac, Really evil red eyes, The Sociopath, Villain Protagonist
  • Domains: Chaos, Evil, Death, Suffering
  • Followers: Tricky
  • Allies: Johan Liebert, Kefka Palazzo, Khorne (more like approved)
  • Rivals: The Joker, Kratos, Hannibal Lecter, Junkrat
  • Enemies: CALYPSO (he hates the guy so much, more than anyone else surprisingly), Nathan Drake, Optimus Prime, Garrus Vakarian, Batman and every single sane person.
  • Feared by: The House of Family, Billy, Bloo, Eduardo, Wilt and Coco
  • Opposed by: Polygon Man, Dexter Morgan
  • After winning the Twisted Metal tournament, Sweet Tooth finally had a chance for just one wish, until his car rose up in the sky. Angered, he stormed into the main gates of the Pantheon, killing every single Mook (rumored to be the 501st Legion), until he saw it in the Treasures section. There, he was given a deal for a position in the Pantheon for Monster Clown, thanks to his freakish personality.
    • Unfortunately, he realized that his ascension was Calypso's ploy, allowing the twisted wishmaker to recreate the Twisted Metal Tournament once more. With that said however, Kane has a lot of dealing to do with him.
  • Sweet Tooth's personality is a heavily feared one, as his mind is filled with the delusional sense of murder and death. The House of Mentalism tried to calm his mind many times, but has so far failed. Rumors say that the flaming mask of his is blocking all mental aid inside.
    • Junkrat often comments about Sweet Tooth's flaming mask being "fake". This did not bring happy news to the clown and is willing to give a brutal beatdown to the mad bomber as a reply to his face.
    • Speaking of his mask, there are reports that his mind is a complete Mental World, something that bothers many deities inside out. Not to mention, one of his other personalities, Marcus Kane said so about this world of his.
  • Thanks to his deranged mind and body, he is completely unstable, thinking about killing on one second, and another killing spree on the next. Due to his status as a Monster Clown, almost anyone who fears on clowns are forced to run as soon as possible from Needles. Sad to say, Billy learned this the hard way, and almost got chopped off.
    • In fact, it should be noted that no sane person should go close to Needles, as his twisted insanity will cause untold havoc to the person himself, and the surroundings around him. Oh, and he doesn't care on what you say while he's killing you, as this will instead make the process more grim. Just ask the last person who got killed by him.
    Needles: Shut up and bleed, you mother-
    • Nathan Drake doesn't like the guy one bit, even so since they fought during the merging of worlds.
      • Speaking of the event, this is why he hates Polygon Man, since he teleported him in this world of his, and ruined his ice cream in the process. This has gotten him with heated arguments with the Mastermind.
    • Optimus Prime on the other hand, doesn't like what Needles did to his truck, specifically speaking, he tuned his truck to becoming a Transforming Mecha, loaded with armed ice cream missiles. And since the driver is a serial killer, this has made Optimus even more suspicious of the clown's activities.
  • Often hangs out in the House of Mentalismmeaning . Once in a while, he'll stop and bring out a paper bag in what it looks like his Imaginary Friend. Even moreso since he named this paper bag, Crazy Harold the Wacky Lunch Bag.
    • He's also eager when it comes to other serial killers, Hannibal Lecter comes to mind, and challenges them to killing sprees to see who's the true serial killer. Though he sometimes cringe when he notices his persona almost similar to his true rival, the Joker.
      • This is why he often comes to Kratos. He wants the God of War to "come out and play with him" or in his meaning: see who's the best killer. However, things started becoming bitter when Needles realized that Kratos replaced his position for a place in another realm. Due to this, he's pissed. And we mean literally.
    • The Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends are not fond of him, not to mention, he creeps everyone out. They aren't impressed with his imaginary friend either, as its just a normal paper bag. Hearing this, Kane rampaged through the House, rammed his Sweet Tooth truck into their temple and attempted to chop Bloo to pieces. This led to of course, a restraint order on Kane's part.
  • On the other hand, the House of Family detests him, and sees his actions as cruel and inhumane, even worse when they found out that he slaughtered his family to pieces, and thats not to mention that the person he kept on hunting was his daughter.
  • His presence is preyed mostly for vigilantes of any kind. The most notable ones being Garrus and Batman, the former wanting his end of chaos gone and the latter for reminding him of the Joker, even though they aren't allies.
  • Often loved by Johan Liebert and Kefka Palazzo, seeing his antics being interestingly fun to watch, mostly on the latter's part. Kefka has also invited Needles on several occassions on his temple for a few plans. Needless to say, BE VERY AFRAID.
    • And yet, Khorne has gotten a huge interest with him, seeing him as a worthy Khornate Berzerker, for a mere mortal that is.
  • Once fought with his former inspiration, The Joker, in a heated battle of the clowns. Needless to say, Needles was "tricked" by the Clown Prince of Crime in a trap, and took over with a victory. Kane's response with the event?
    Needles: Oh that rip-off is dead, fucking dead to me.
  • However, the only thing that he and most heroes would agree on is this: Calypso is the only thing worse than Needles himself. Not to mention, this is due to the fact that Calypso's final act to Sweet Tooth was a burial, with his daughter's corpse inside with him.
    Needles: You can't kill me! You can't kill me! You can't ever kill me! I'll find you Calypso. I'll fucking find you and fucking kill you! You will fear Sweet Tooth! I'll cut your fucking insides out! You will fear me motherfucker! You! Will! Fear! ME!

    Northern Ocean Princess 
Northern Ocean Princess, Avatar of Unintentionally Sympathetic Villains (Northern Hime, Hoppo, Dutch Harbor, Mittens)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bbv_northern_princess_581_full.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her rigging
  • Theme Music: Protect the Shikon
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil, True Neutral when not on work
  • Portfolio: Unintentionally Sympathetic Villains, Woman in White, Mystical White Hair, Horned Humanoid, Badass Adorable Precocious Child, Creepy Child, Smallest Humanoid Abyssal, Being Really Popular
  • Domains: Villains, Creatures, Children, Sea
  • Allies: Her fellow Abyssal Fleet (Seaport Princess (practically her big sister), Wo-Class, Re-Class), Ika Musume, Lieselotte Achenbach, Angelia Avallone, Reisuke Houjou, Steven Universe
  • Enemies (on a bad day): Admiral, all of the ascended Fleet Girls, whoever tries to come to her guarded area
  • Originally, the title of Unintentionally Sympathetic Villains belonged to her fellow Abyssal Wo-Class. The reasoning is that even though the Abyssal Fleet is supposed to be almost heartless monsters trying to drive away humanity from the sea and might be resurrected Fleet Girls, no one cannot find them being that evil. The reason why Northern Princess usurped Wo-Class was that even though she is meant to be a Creepy Child, everyone finds her being a cute girl.
  • Due to how things are, she is only really evil when she has a duty to fulfil. She will ask others to go back, but she will return fire if she is threatened. But when not on duty, she acts like a cute little sister to Seaport Princess. No, we're serious.
    • When she is in her better days, she seems to hang around with Tenryuu the most of the Fleet Girls.
  • She constantly tries to get into House of Travel, demanding them to give her Zero back note . Double for Ryuujou. Eventually, they followed her command and gave her Zero. All four of them.
  • She seems to be getting along really well with Ika Musume of all of the Abyssals for whatever reason.
  • Of all of the Abyssal constructs, she seems to be the one who gets stacked with most special supplies based on what time of the year it is, were they presents for Christmas, hishimochi during Hinamatsuri or plain old mackerel when there is a good supply. Some gods tend to "bully" her for her resources, which she isn't happy about at all.
  • She wants to hang around with more child deities, but due to her base alignment, she really can only get to hang around with more "nasty" children. They aren't that bad in comparison, though. The only exception is Steven, but the Crystal Gems pose as the only problem in that regard.
  • Is sometimes seen to resemble something similar that of a Moomin.
  • She may be named after the latter's domain, but Karen of the Mermaid Princesses isn't at all amused.

Gihren Zabi, God of Colony Drops and Fantastical Nazis

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Zeon flag
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Dropped an entire colony and destroying a percentage of Earth, The villain who never gets a battle, Killing his father but eventually gets killed by his own sister, Rousing Speeches, being irredeemable
  • Domains: War, Patricide, Nazism
  • Followers: Colonel Killing, Aiguille Delaz
  • Allies: Most genocidal maniacs in the Pantheon such as Red Skull, HYDRA, and SHOCKER
  • Enemies: Char Aznable, Amuro Ray, other good aligned Robot pilots Zero, X, Kamen Riders 1 and 2
  • Opposes: Bask Om
  • Gihren Zabi ascended the moment he ordered the colony drop on Earth. He ascended his second title when his father Degwin compared him to Adolf Hitler, and he took it in stride
  • People often confuse him with Mr Fantastic because of having the same voice.
  • Since his ascension, Gods have been hearing "SIEG ZEON" round and round inside his Temple, though his Zeon faction is now the minority faction compared to Char's Neo Zeon supporters.
  • Char hates his guts, due to the Colony Drop he did in U.C 0079, which Char believes is too extreme. He also compares Gihren unfavourably to Rau Le Creuset, as their desire of genocide is far too similar. He fears that if they meet, the Zeon Civil War will reach a crisis.
    • Too bad they DID meet, and took a liking to each other, though Rau is a little disappointed that Gihren refuses to fully admit to his desire for destruction of the human species. Gihren, on the other hand, has promised him powerful Zeon support to improve his Providence Gundam and fund a project to build a new Gundam unit capable of using Plavsky particles to transform into any mobile suit that has ever existed.
    • This has put him in conflict with Sei and Reiji, as well as Aila, who are trying to curb his efforts to get Plavsky particles at every turn.
  • The Zeon based deities are confused on who to follow, the Zabi Gihren or Rem Deikun Char? There is currently a civil war involving that. However, popular support has gravitated towards Char's faction, as Char at least has a moral code.
Even non-ascended Zeons like Gihren's own siblings reluctantly prefer Char to him, even though Char was personally responsible for at least two of their deaths.
  • Gihren despises Bask Om for being a perfect example of a ""Feddie"" officer who has too much freedom.
  • X and Zero hate his guts because of him reminding the time they had a colony drop, they make sure it doesn't happen again
  • He is banned from the House of Family, specifically the Fathers subhouse for his crime of familial patricide.
  • Is not sure what to think of Banagher Links considering his relationship with his younger brother Dozle's daughter, but doesn't care about that and only thinks of him as a Federation Gundam pilot.
  • Gihren Zabi is similar to an organization called Shocker, which pissed off Kamen Riders 1 and 2 angry and avoid meeting him,
  • He has also found new allies in the name of Red Skull who is reminded of his former leader Adolf Hitler (which Gihren showed in delight) Red Skull decides to give him HYDRA support in order to counter Char's Neo Zeon forces.
  • During his free time, Gihren goes to funerals and makes Rousing Speeches.

    Imran Zakhaev 
Imran Zakhaev, God of Evil Russians post Cold War (Fourth Horseman, Hero of the New Russia)

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A Desert Eagle
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (Pretends to be Chaotic Good)
  • Portfolio: Bald of Evil, Beard of Evil, Big Bad of the first game, Nuke 'em, He Who Must Notbe Seen, Papa Wolf, Renegade Russian, Soft-Spoken Sadist, An Arm and a Leg
  • Domains: Russia, Terrorists, Revolutions, Nuclear Weapons, War.
  • Herald: Viktor Zakhaev (His son)
  • Allies: Vladimir Makarov, Nikita Dragovich, Raul Menendez, Red Skull, Kane, Yuri, HYDRA, Sundowner, Roman Torchwick, Reaper, Widowmaker
  • Enemies: Captain John Price, General Sheperd, James Ramirez, Captain America, Natasha Romanoff, Big Boss, Solid Snake, Warhead
  • Opposes: Most deities that hail from the US, Kano, Most snipers.
  • Imran Zhakaev is the leader of the Russian Ultranationalist Party, which has been in conflict with the Loyalists for the control of Russia. Zakhaev was always a powerful man, having been one of the most important arms dealers in the 90s until his assassination attempt that made him lose an arm. After his death, Zakhaev became a martyr and Russia remembered him as a hero, and his influence still lingered in the form of Vladimir Makarov.
  • Zakhaev aims at destroying the West after, in his own words, his country became the lapdog of them. That would explain why he would approach this conflict by force and actually as far as to aid Khaled Al-Assad in starting a war with the US so they would be distracted while the war in Russia kept going.
  • Makarov was very happy to see that his mentor found his way into the pantheon. With the two together things are going to get complicated for Captain Price.
    • From Makarov he got to meet Nikita Dragovich and Raul Menendez, who share the same hatred towards the West. In turn, their shared enemy Alex Mason also doesn't think too highly of Zakhaev.
  • Before becoming the chairman of the Ultranationalist party, Zakhaev used to be an arms dealer and still to this day has done a few deals in the pantheon with the likes of Sundowner or Roman Torchwick. However, he refuses to interact with Kano ever since he runned off with his equipment after a deal gone wrong.
  • Formed an alliance with Kane and Yuri since they also cause Russia to become the most powerful force after Albert Einstein assassinated Hitler. Safe to say, Zakhaev is proud that this version of Russia exist and wants to know more about it.
  • One thing that he dislikes is snipers ever since he lost his arm to one. Then it turned out that Captain Price was the one that shot him and believed Zakhaev to be dead, but that wasn't the case. Looks like shock and blood loss didn't really take of the rest as he thought.
  • Being a powerful and influential terrorist, it's no surprise that he allied himself with others like him ranging from Zoran Lazarević to Hydra itself who all wanted a share of his nuclear weaponry. Talon agents Reaper and Widowmaker also approached him with the intention of his backup, but he doesn't trust the french sniper, mostly because he lost his arm to a sniper in Pripyat.
  • Zakhaev hates the west with a passion, especially after his son Viktor died. He aims to destroy any American deity that dares oppose him, and he has made some powerful allies that also share this view of the west like Red Skull.
    • Ironically, Captain America became his number one target on his black list. He also isn't very fond of Natasha Romanoff who is an ex russian agent working for the US.
  • After learning about Big Boss and their "children" actions, he has been interested in acquiring a Metal Gear for himself. He also wants to avenge the death of Colonel Volgin and blames the former for that.
  • Even though they both have access to powerful nuclear weapons, Warhead isn't too fond of Zakhaev.

  • Superior: William Shakespeare (although she has plans to overthrown him with her husband)
  • High Priestess: Duchess Felmet, Lady Asaji, Fox
  • Lust after by: The Overlord, Ra's al Ghul, Littlefinger
  • Her ascension bring upon fear not only on the House of Royalty, but also pretty every god in the Pantheon who worries that she and her husband are planning to usurp them. Because of this, spies and surveillance are constantly on watch in all of their temples to see what they are planning.
  • Was given a spot in the GUAE because of her and her followers's exceptional ability to convince their significant others to commit diabolical plan. Lady Macbeth doesn't particularly happy about the position as she refused to be a lackey of anyone but accepted it nonetheless in order to gain influence while planning to overthrow some of her higher up. Her insanity served as a double edged sword to the GUAE: while it dampens her usefulness, it also makes her unable to execute her plan.
  • Constantly washing her hand in the House of Mentality due to the guilt of convincing her husband to kill Duncan to take the throne. While this tendency was lessened somewhat when she ascended to the Pantheon, her temple constantly have various running water fountain.
  • Her temple is despised by Light Yagami due to the fact that one of his "admirers" Misa is inspired to follow this role to assist Light during the time he was mortal.
    • In contrast, her temple is Xanatos's favorite place to visit given the fact that his wife Fox resides there and arranged meetings in his off day. For a reasonable payment toward the Macbeths, of course.
  • Is on good term with Bellatrix Lestrade given the fact that both of the men they are in love with are violent and immoral. However, Bellatrix is jealous that Lady Macbeth actually got the men she loves while the former got stuck in an arranged marriage with someone she hates.
    • Because she chose to allied with Bellatrix, Harry, Hermione, Ron and Neville hate her gut and are on the camp that hope she never regain her full sanity.
  • Azula was at first very excited to hear about her ascension hearing about her deeds and ruthlessness. However, the princess was disappointed to discover that Lady Macbeth went insane out of guilt after what she perceived as a smart political move. While still respect her, Azula sometimes annoyed with her habit of constantly washing her hands and wished that she would someday cured of her insanity to fully used her ruthlessness. Because of Lady Macbeth said similarity with Azula, the Gaang and Zuko all despises her.
  • Engaged on a witch hunt with her husband after hearing that the Weird Sisters have ascended the Pantheon for their vague prophecy leading her husband's fall and death. This got the couple banned from the House of Prophecy and Magic.
    • Because of said witch hunt, as well as one of her high priestess is their mortal enemy, Lady Macbeth earned the ire of Granny Weatherwax and Granny Ogg.
    • Upon their witch hunt, she stumbled across Gul'dan and was immediately disgusted that he has the ability to contact demons to perform his deed. The fact that he is an ogre also makes her hatred for him increase ten-fold.
  • Because of her ruthlessness and the ability to assist and convince Macbeth to follow go through with the killing, many evil overlord with thirst for power have set their eyes on her and scheming to win her heart or kill off her husband (or both). These people include the Overlord (as she is similar to one of his possible consort), Ra al Ghul and Littlefinger.
  • Because of the long-running nature of her play and the fact that she is a pretty popular characters, Lady Macbeth acquired a few allies and enemies for her similarity to someone in their world:
    • James Bond once flirted with her as she looks like a few younger versions of his deceased boss M. However, Bond backs away when finding out who she really is in fear of her taking over MI-6. Likewise, the Doctor approached her as he mistook her for one of his companion River Song but also backs away in fear that she would take his TARDIS.
    • Talia al Ghul is on good term with her given the fact that they both love their father and the men they fall in love despite their evilness. After learning that she looks like one of Talia's version, Lady Macbeth frequently appears in this form when meeting Ra in order to Squick him out.
    • Lara Croft was creeped out when learned that Lady Macbeth can sometimes speak like her and has been tight up her security system to avoid impersonation.
    • Littlefinger is especially intense in winning her heart and killing her husband as Lady Macbeth sometime looks like his deceased unrequited love Catelyn Stark. This also cost Ned to mistake that his wife has ascended and was quickly heartbroken discover that was not the case and Lady Macbeth is nothing like his wife.

    Team Rocket 
Jessie, James, and Meowth, Gods of the Villainous Trios and Long Awaited Victories for Minor Antagonists (Musashi, Kojiro, and Nyarth; Team Rocket)

  • Demideities
  • Symbol: A stylized "R"
  • Theme Song: "Prepare for Trouble" or "Double Trouble"
  • Alignment: True Neutral (they're not quite successful enough and have too many Enemy Mine moments to be truly Evil, but they're getting there now)
  • Portfolio: Comical "Master Criminals", Talking Animals (Meowth), Ambiguously Gay Guys (James), Short Temper (Jessie) Catch Phrase-Spouting Trios, Blasting Off At The Speed Of Light
  • Domains: Beastmaster, Greed, Pain
  • High Priests: The Pilaf Gang
  • Followers: The Misfits, The Predacons, the Skull Gang (Doronjo, Tonzra and Boyacky), Nana, Saki and Mio, The Demon Three, the Black Hammer Gang
  • Allies: Koffing, Yanmega, Excel, Il Palazzo, the Ginyu Force, Jack Spicer, Ika Musume, Lust, Envy and Gluttony, The Professor
  • Enemies:
  • Herald: Bewear
  • They blast off at the speed of light, and kindly ask that their opponents surrender or prepare to fight. The opponents always choose the latter… and win… most of the time.
  • They infiltrate the House of Beast daily to try to steal Pikachu. However, they're always quickly expelled. They swear that someday they'll succeed in their efforts, but nobody takes them seriously.
    • Their blasting off has become less common ever since they caught the attention of a wild Bewear, who would pull off incredible feats to save them whenever they end up in trouble.
    • Meowth has at times attempted to evade capture by disgusing himself as one of the regular Meowth in the House of Felines. Nobody is fooled.
  • Have since become surprisingly competent, they lost one of their positions, but due to their newfound power, they flew off on jetpacks, and stole the empty temple and remade it so they would only be gods of the Terrible Trio. Giovanni is much more pleased with them.
  • Like Jack Spicer, they idolize and worship Melkor.
  • Despite being only Quasideities, they also have their sights on taking down Ghetsis Harmonia, since he represents Team Plasma, a rival Pokémon villain team. After all, they figure there can be only one Pokémon villain team represented in the Pantheon, and that's Team Rocket. They're willing to work with Ash and Pikachu in order to do so, just so that no one else besides them can steal Pikachu.
    • With the ascension of Team Flare's Lysandre in the House of Hatred, their goal of becoming the only Pokémon villain team has gotten more difficult. However, they know Ghetsis and Lysandre have mutual disgust/hatred for each other, so the trio are plotting a way to get those two to outright fight each other. The fact that Lysandre destroyed his world in one timeline and tried to use the Ultimate Weapon to destroy another had seriously ticked off both Team Rocket and Ghetsis, and a fight between them is invertible.
  • Whenever the trio come across someone (other than Brock) with the eyes concealed, especially by a blindfold (whether it be Rider, Raiden, or even Mega Absol), James and Meowth would lock into fear, and would do whatever it takes to get the hell away from them, much to Jessie's annoyance. This originated from their total fear of Riku because of how he used a blindfold to suppress the darkness within him, and took on the form of Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, whenever he took it off. Oddly enough, they still fear him even after learning that he can no longer suffer the negative effects of darkness.
    • The fear got more intense when Riku and Absol teamed up as per the partnership program, mainly because Mega Absol's aura can kill fainthearted people, which Meowth fears because it is bad enough Jessie's Mimikyu keeps on sucking his soul out. However, Jessie is still unfazed, causing James and Meowth to compare her behavior to the time where she tried to steal an Electrike (which evolved into a Manectric almost right away), despite their objections.
    • James and Meowth also gained a fear towards Sora, as the first time the trio ever encountered him awake, he was in his Halloween Town outfit. Meowth described him as even more scarier than Mimikyu, and asks if Sora can also kill people just by removing his mask.
  • Learned about "Project: Alternate Gentaro" from Misty and Brock, after Ash disappeared when he went searching in it. Team Rocket is only helping in this regard because only they can fight Ash and capture Pikachu. They also are trying to hide the fact that they are freaked out by the asylum. But you really can't blame them for that.
    • Once Ash was freed from corruption, the trio decided to invade the asylum via the computer world and destroy it themselves, but Riku would not allow them inside with Otacon's computer. Although James and Meowth agreed to stop, Jessie was still very determined to get inside, which lead to Wobbuffet accidently getting himself zapped in.
      • After the asylum's destruction, the trio paid a visit to a wounded Sora at the GUAG Medical Division, intending to steal his Meow Wow while the Keyblade wielder was recovering from surgery. Unfortunately for them, Audino was guarding him, and blasted them off with a single Double-Edge while Mega-Evolved.
  • On the subject on the self-proclaimed members of Team Rocket Annie and Oakley, the trio speculated that the reason the sisters call themselves Team Rocket members is because they are an inspiration for the two (many believe that their thinking is skewed towards boosting their image in the House). While the three of them are happy that even with their repeated failures they got fans, they do have a distaste for their accidental murder of a Pokémon. Stealing Pokémon is one thing, but they draw the line on killing them.
  • James is glad that Jessebelle, the woman his parents are trying to force him to marry, isn't in the pantheon. Of course, he still fears the day that she'll learn of his godhood and try to ascend herself.
  • Despite talking and walking like a human, Meowth is still a proud Pokémon and as such he has nothing but contempt against the recently ascended pig Napoleon, who is a complete hypocrite about it.
  • Alongside Ash, Pikachu, Misty and Brock, they are expressly banned from Cyberspace in the wake of a certain incident.
  • They tend to avoid Red when they can, especially since in his timeline, he single-handedly defeated the entirety of Team Rocket and even forced their boss Giovanni to disband it after defeating him.
  • Don't like Butch Cassidy (and to an extent his partner Sundance) for reminding them of their in-corporation rivals Butch and Cassidy.

Quasideities

    Jack Spicer 
Jack Spicer, God of Comically Inepts ("Evil Boy Genius")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jackspicer_2126.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A Jack Bot of course
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (but only due to his loud whining to be taken seriously)
  • Portfolio: Failure Is the Only Option (most of the time, Mecha-Mooks, Evil Genius, Goggles Do Nothing (most of the time), Villain Decay, Unpopular Popular Character. As of the reboot: Character Rerailment, Took a Level in Badass, Audience Surrogate
  • Domains: Being considered a joke In Universe, Villainous Valor, getting beat down a ton, Robots
  • Followers: None for now
  • Allies: Team Rocket (they sympathize, and point fingers as well), Dr. Evil, the entire Demonic Legion.
  • Jack Spicer randomly opened a puzzle box sent to his home after moping about those "Xiaolin Losers" beating him again. The box promptly brought him to the pantheon, as Team Rocket declared him their new stand in for most inept villain ever.
  • Jack complained that he did score some handy victories early in his career, but Johnson, god of judgement, quickly pointed out that no villain could fall so far as to have his underwear stolen as a trophy of war, and sent him back to his temple.
  • Spends a surprising amount of time in other houses, looking for things to steal, and ways to upgrade his robots. Optimus has quietly told the houses of weapons and craft to keep an eye on Jack, but to always have a fly swatter on hand, and pudding cups to send him away.
  • Jack is an Ascended Fanboy of Melkor and geeks out whenever he shows up. Though the latter finds his fanboyism more annoying than flattering.
  • Despite his low position, he admits it's not so bad, since he got there without the Xiaolin monks foiling him (and the fact that none of his tormenters both good and evil have ascended yet makes him even happier).
  • After the reordering of his home universe, Jack has managed to slightly step up his evil game. He's learned to secure funding by offering his tech skills as a service and is more capable of preying on opponents' weak points. Despite this he's still unlikely to triumph therefore not in too much danger of losing his position.
    • The House of Commerce was pleased with his surprisingly fair business model for tech problems: $1 for normal questions, $10 for stupid questions. Less so with the funding gong towards harebrained schemes.

    Ozwell E. Spencer 
Lord Ozwell E. Spencer, God of Villains who Are Behind the Actions of Others (Oswell, The Earl Spencer, Dr. Spencer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ozwell2.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: The Umbrella Corporation Logo

  • Domains: Viruses, Darwinism, Manipulation, Villainy, God Complex
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: The House of Nature
  • Abhorrent Admirer towards: Miranda Lawson
  • Meet perhaps the most influention figure in the world of Resident Evil, Ozwell E. Spencer. One of the three founders of Umbrella Corporation and the one who's been the head of it for most of its lifetime, Spencer was morally detached and had dreams of creating a superior human race, his darwinistic mindset would let him to discover the Progenitor Virus and also be the headmaster for the Project W, which was based on his vision for a perfect and superior human race. His hubris and ego also made him betray his close partners, having his co-founder James Marcus assassinated, attempting to steal the G-Virus from William Birkin, having numerous of his underlings killed and even a series of decisions that led to the downfall of Umbrella. Years later, on the run from the authorities, Spencer decided to meet one last time with one of his greatest creations, Albert Wesker, knowing full well that he would not survive the encounter and reveal the origins of Project W to Albert, immediately getting killed afterwards. The influence of Spencer alone was able to grant him godhood, but not the one he was seeking.
  • Even ascended, Spencer is still stuck in a wheelchair barely clinging to life and with a lot of people wanting him dead with no possible mutation as a backup. After learning of his ascension, both Marcus and Birkin quickly transformed into their mutated forms and charged at Spencer's location, wanting revenge for being double crossed. Unfortunately for them, there is still a lot of bad blood with the two to make a truce to take down Spencer and then Ozwell took that opportunity to flee while the two monstrosities fought it off. Luckily for him, it enabled Spencer to get some protection in the form of a few loyal Umbrella workers and some B.O.W.s. Plus, the Grim Reaper and the Wolfpack are still willing to work for him but not entirely loyal to Spencer either way, the Wolfpack even sometimes wanting to tell him to piss off.
    • The hatred for Spencer isn't just limited to Marcus and Birkin when it comes to deities from his universe. Both Wesker siblings, the surviving S.T.A.R.S. members that raided his mansion and even their close allies have all a bone to pick with him, Albert himself just chuckled when he heard from Birkin that the old man was back in action. He didn't bother killing him again because Wesker feels leaving him live as a lowly god is a fitting punishment for him.
  • It's always recommender to never, never, work for him. His history of screwing over the people that worked for him is no secret, that goes for potential partners, creations and even other minor workers. Most notoriously the architect behind the creation of the Spencer Mansion and other Umbrella facilities, George Trevor, had him and his family murdered to silence him. Architects around the Pantheon like Emmet Brickowski and Juror 8 were horrified when they learned about his death, not to mention the horrifying fate his daughter Lisa suffered. That said, Spencer did get along with Maegor Tagaryen, who did exactly what Spencer did with his own builders and got them all killed, although the lord could care less about his royal family.
  • Has a lot in common with Sheev Palpatine, right down to having met his end thanks to an apprentice. Spencer also admires how the man's machinations managed to land him where he wanted and succeed where Spencer always wanted to succeed. His manipulative nature and scheming has also made him become allies with David Xanatos and Master Xehanort but both believe he would have to improve a lot given the numerous issues his plans had.
  • While he finds their general appearance disgusting, he did ally with the infamous group of bloodsuckers known as the Crimson Court, although many find his distate ironic considering what the viruses Umbrella has created do to people. Nevertheless, Spencer found some potential in the Crimson Curse, possibly even enabling him to create an even more powerful variant of the T-Virus before Marcus finds out.
    • That said, once he heard of Spencer's alliance with the Crimson Court, the Ancestor took a firm stance against him. While aged and relegated to a wheelchair, he is a reminder of his younger and more ambitios self which seeked nothing but power and also both being behind many of the events in their respective home universe. That, and there have been many comparison between the Spencer Mansion and The Darkest Estate.
  • Considered the bane of many Zombie Apocalypse survivors, being one of the many reasons the Raccoon City incidents and other related outbreaks happened. Most people are very content with putting a bullet in his head but considering the increase in security following an attack has made that a bit harder to pull off.
  • Considering his obssession with creating a superior human race and being its ruler, it's no surprise that Lord Spencer would become increasingly obssessed with Miranda Lawson, as she suceeded where Albert and Alex Wesker didn't, being a perfect and superior human. Of course, Miranda doesn't return the praise, thinking of Spencer as an old and senile fool that's far worse than her father ever was.
  • Naturally oppossed by most certified doctors, as all of Umbrella Corporation's creations and actions are beyond ethical and the damage they have done had made many people not trust pharmaceutical companies and doctors, making it hard to combat the viral outbreaks. Many have pointed out that Spencer could have achieved his goal faster had he tried to pursue a medical science career, coming out as the hero instead of a villain. Spencer simply doesn't care about what other people think of him.
  • The damage that Umbrella caused also extends to heavily affecting nature and it's fauna, making Spencer an unforgiveable monster in the eyes of the House of Nature. The Nature Preservers are the more active opposing side of said house, even trying to boycott any potential new development or plan he may be cooking up.
  • Like Wesker and Marcus, he too took interest in the E-Type Series B.O.W., also known as Eveline. While her purpose is for war, he thinks there is so much potential with her series that he wants to get a sample of molded to investigate. He also was surprised when he learned that the family she took control of, the Bakers, had their home made by the same company that George Trevor worked in, seeing a few similarities between his Mansion and the Baker Estate.

    Snidely Whiplash 
Snidely Whiplash, God of Mustache-Twirling Villains
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snidly.jpg
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A silhouette with his face, mustache and hat.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Card-Carrying Villain, representing evil that has a beard, is hammy, wears black and always has an Evil Plan, tends to leave Nell Chained to a Railway to force her to be with him
  • Domains: Evil, Charm, Trickery, Facial Hair mlm

  • Enemies: The House of Heroes
  • Opposes: Claude Frollo
  • Opposed by: Princess Peach, General Tarquin
  • Respected by: Charlie Chaplin
  • Sometimes, some villains just want to simply act out their evil ways for the sake of evil. They see a potential Damsel in Distress and just want to tie her up to a train track to see if anyone would stop them. Such is the the philosophy of Snidley Whiplash, and for a time he shared this title with Dick Dastardly. But their constant failures started to wear the GUAE thin. It came to a point that Melkor demanded that one of them will be cut from the group. Whoever could do one successfully evil act would stay. The two frantically searched for a way to please their boss. In the end, Mutley helped Dick to sabotage the Batmobile... at least enough to help the Joker get away. Thus, Snidely Whiplash was banished from the Pantheon. He tried several times to enter to no avail. It was Dastardly that risked his position to bring him back. The Court of the Gods decided to give Snidley his old position, letting Dick Dastardly keep his new temple.
    • Despite potentially costing him a spot in the Pantheon for a good while, Snidely holds no grudge against Dastardly, even going so far as expecting nothing less from his evil counterpart. Now that the two are back together, they can go back to enacting Evil Plans and failing on most occasions.
  • There is no doubt he simmers at the absence of Nelly in the Pantheon. There has been talk of giving her Damsel in Distress, but they haven't gained any traction. There is an even less chance that his Arch-Enemy Dudley Do-Right will make an appearance. While he laughs at the prospect of beating his foe in that regard, some wonder if he the do-gooder completed his life.
  • Peach could only emit a large groan when word came of his return. Many of her followers have had encounters with his type, with many of them getting captured in the process. Her kidnapper Bowser on the other hand was delighted to see one of the originators of damsel kidnapping make his return. The two can be seen exchanging ideas on how to lure the women of their desires.
  • As usual, Xykon failed to successfull say his name. However, the lich did recognize the face as one of the original archtypes of evil in the Pantheon. While no where near as powerful, Snidely was welcome to Xykon's temple at any time.
  • Finds the Black Queen not only an attractive woman, but also one who agrees that he should be with Nell. Her Majesty delights in his attempts to sway the inspector's daughter, though some of her clergy were not pleased with his constant attempts to put her life in danger. she may pine after Barbarella with the same intensity, but Her Majesty has shown a greater care for her life.
  • Despite both falling in love with women, mustache-twirling villain doesn't have much in common with the judge. Snidely chided Frollo for not accepting his feelings for Esmeralda and should just accept he's in love with her. This was an affront to the faith of his followers, who despise the objects of their desire.
  • While no longer evil, Snidely remains good friends with Dr. Evil. The two remember fondly an age when villains acted within the means to which heroes have a small chance of success.
  • Tarquin thinks otherwise. He was against the return of Whiplash as he sees the villain as one of the very worst examples of ineffectual villains in the Pantheon. Much of his book about how to be a better villain took cues from many of Snidely's mistakes.
  • Charlie Chaplin can tell where much of Snidely's antics came from. Much of that time's silent movies had villains with a similar garb. Snidely confirmed this, stating he has always been fond of such villains, only wishing that they were more successful in foiling the heroes. The God of Silent Movies was willing to lend some of his tapes... provided Snidely returned them at a later date.
  • One could say that Wile E. Coyote took some inspiration from the classic villain. He may fail to capture that Roadrunner multiple times, but Snidely appreciates his ambition.
  • Despite his status as a Quasideity, the GUAG has told their constituents to take him seriously regardless. He is nothing if not a determined fiend with a knack at putting heroes in awful situations, either by setting up traps or kidnapping their loved ones.
