  • Rival: Yapool

  • Enemies:
  • Feared by: Yuuki Terumi and The GUAE Trollkaiger
  • The manifestation of the plane of Subspace, which he has total control over, but cannot leave "himself". Though initially considered the God of Subspace, subspace isn't a trope in itself and was later changed to Silent Antagonist instead. He's still involved with his old house however due to his dimension-warping abilities.
  • Once attempted to pull the world of the mortals into his own domain in order to expand his influence. His plans involved bombs and Cool Ships that weaponized spacetime. This resulted in the death of Master Hand (who came back) and the awakening of Mr. Game & Watch to his godly powers. He was eventually beaten back in an Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny after being weakened by Sonic. Tabuu remains quite angered by this humiliation and plots his next move.
  • Tabuu is believed to be some sort of symbolic entity. If Master and Crazy Hand represent the creativity of a child, Tabuu is the part of the child who feels he/she must "grow up" and stop playing with his/her toys. That, or the father who's sick of his kids' playtime. He isn't telling.
  • Rumors began to spread that he was part of Galeem's forces during the World of Light incident after Galleom, a mechanical warmonger built by his army, was spotted as one of the light god's lieutenants. Turns out, Tabuu was found by the fighters as just a mere spirit amongst many in the realm of Galeem's counterpart, Dharkon. This has given him great resentment against Galeem for stealing from him and being turned into a spirit, nor does he think high of Dharkon as he controlled him.
  • Tabuu is highly dreaded throughout the Pantheon for notable reasons. His silence makes it hard to know if he is planning something or not, he has an entire army of minions (some more infuriating than others), is capable of being The Man Behind the Man while not talking at all and can instantly wipe out entire armies with his most powerful attack. His Off-Waves.
  • Is a powerful Reality Warper, though is unable to leave Subspace and because of this he has to pull parts of the outside world into his realm in order to gain dominion over them. If he ever finds a way to leave subspace, he would become much harder to stop.
  • Actively seeks more pawns to control and manipulate. He has his eyes set on authority figures similar to what he did to Master Hand so he can gain unwitting soldiers without much problem due to their loyalties to who he controls and manipulates. He has a massive interest in one particular Goddess...and due to who he is, she has no idea of what Tabuu is planning.
    • Knowing he is physically stronger than Cosmos, Tabuu plans on having his armies lure her into Subspace so he can gain control over her like he did with Master Hand. He also seeks to take out members of the GUAG one by one and replace them with duplicates using his Shadow Bugs.
  • He has been working with YHVH to destroy Lucifer as Tabuu sees him as a great threat to the world of trophies he so desires. YHVH sees great potential in his power to One-Hit Kill many, even when weakened, but is disappointed that he won’t join the Grand United Alliance of Law due to Galeem being a member. Frighteningly enough, they get along like a house on fire otherwise, with YHVH even planning to let Tabuu create loyal replicas of GUAC members using Shadow Bugs once they are incapacitated to add to their forces before subverting the will of the real ones himself. It helps that Tabuu and his armies have been supplying the GUAL with Dark Cannons.
  • Sympathizes with Bill Cipher and Pharaoh 90 for their similar situations. While Tabuu is much closer to Law than he is Chaos, he’ll take what he can get. He believes Bill Cipher’s Weirdmageddon to be a ticket out of Subspace and desires to continue his plans for a world of trophies even if it happens. To do this, he wants to turn Bill and his Henchmaniacs into trophies after he is freed by Weirdmageddon and make loyal replicas of them using his Shadow Bugs.
  • Enemies with all of the Heroic Ultramen as his plan of turning everyone into trophies happens to be very similar to that of one of their foes. He was very pissed with their interference against him and wants to give every single one of them A Fate Worse Than Death. He tried using his armies to get the attention of Yapool with the intention of creating an alliance against the Ultras, but they became rivals instead as they caught him and his Choju just as they were about to launch an attack on them. However, Yapool is interested in Tabuu’s Subspace due to how dark it is there.
  • Yuuki Terumi started to become afraid of him after he and the Trollkaiger taunted Tabuu about his inability to leave Subspace on his own, only for him to send endless waves of his minions led by another Galleom that he had built by his allies as Galeem had taken control of the original. They were dragged into Subspace and eventually they were recovered by the Grand United Alliance of Evil after dark duplicates of them were killed. They refused to talk about what happened.
  • Interestingly enough, Porky Minch has appeared to serve as one of his generals during the Subspace incident. Worryingly enough, they remain on good terms in the Pantheon and even worse, one of Porky’s heralds, Fassad, frequently makes trips to Subspace to deliver technology for Tabuu and his armies to use.

    Hal Stewart/Tighten 
Hal Stewart, God of Non-Evil Characters Becoming the Villain (Tighten, Titan)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tighten.png
Before his transformation 
  • Greater God as Tighten, Quasideity as Hal
  • Symbol: The letter "T" wrapped in flames as well as a camera
  • Theme Song: Tightenville
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, closer to Chaotic Stupid
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, In love with Roxanne but was rejected and decided to become a villain over it, Believes Being Good Sucks, Evil expy of Jimmy Olsen, Card-Carrying Villain , Drunk with Power, Dirty Coward, Evil Is Petty, Flying Brick, From Nobody to Nightmare, It's All About Me, Psychopathic Manchild, Red Is Violent, Stalker with a Crush, Took a Level in Badass with his powers, Would Hit a Girl
  • Domains: Evil, Love, Rejection, Superpowers, Destruction
  • High Priest: Wheatley
  • Heralds: The Doom Syndicate
  • Allies: Lex Luthor, Regime Superman, The Plutonian, Syndrome, Gideon Graves, Vlad Masters
  • Enemies: Megamind, Metro Man, The House of Heroism (Superman especially), Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, The Green Lantern Corps, Bunnymund, Toothiana, Elizabeth I, Gru
  • Opposed by: Heroic deities from the House of Love and Affection
  • Hal Stewart used to be a regular citizen of Metro City working as the cameraman of news reporter Roxanne Ritchie. He also had a strong crush on her but she wouldn't reciprocate and he secretly despised Metro Man for the belief that he and Roxanne were in love. Following the former's alleged death and the subsequent victory of Megamind, Hal's life took a rather drastic turn when he was given Metro Man's power accidentally and then convinced by the mysterious "Space Dad" to become a hero in order to win over Roxanne, he became the superhero Titan. That wouldn't last, as Hal's entitlement towards the affection of Roxanne and the following rejection made it clear that she would never love him back and made him realize that being a superhero was not worth it, so he decided to become a villain instead. As Tighten, he was able to subdue Metro City and kidnap Roxanne but was ultimately stopped by Megamind and reverted back to his original form. This goes to show that appearances can deceive and anyone can become a dangerous villain if given too much power, the very reason why Hal managed to ascend into the pantheon.
  • Neither Megamind nor Metro Man were happy to see Hal back and with his power to boot. The first thing Tighten wanted to was to settle the score with Megamind but quickly found out that, while he is powerful in his own right, he isn't the big man on campus anymore and so he was quickly intercepted by several heroes, Superman in particular who was disappointed that Hal would use his powers so recklessly and for petty reasons. Tighten was later forced to retreat, promising that he would end all the heroes that oppose him.
  • You may be wondering, how did Hal regain his powers? Well, he initially ascended as his regular human form but after the reviewing process, Lex Luthor came to Hal and offered him a deal: join him and he would grant him the powers of Metro Man once more and Hal with no hesitation agreed, becoming Tighten once more. Luthor thinks he is a bit too unruly to control but considering that they share foes, he thinks Tighten will serve well for now.
  • Hal is not the sharpest tool in the shed and this often gets him into situation where otherwise other people would be fine. He constantly butts heads with heroes that are either smarter or stronger than him and that's when he was approached by Syndrome. Given their similarities, the two decided to work together to get back at their enemies and Tighten started to take Megamind's advice in becoming a supervillain by working on his PRESENTATION!
  • Not all versions of the Man of Steel are against Tighten as some of them saw potential in allying with Hal even if they found him quite a petulant person. Regime Superman first approached him with the intent of teaching him how to properly harness his powers and the Plutonian shares the same disregard for others. The latter especially has encouraged Hal to murder both Megamind and Roxanne, something that Tighten has considered for a while.
  • Megamind wasn't the only one of the Evil Genius type that managed to best Hal. One time he came into conflict with Gru, who is said to be equally cunning as Megamind or even more and given that he is friends with the blue alien, it was a matter of time before the two met. Having known about Tighten, Gru prepared himself with a few gadgets that could restrain him and after both coincidentally tried to steal the same treasure, the two came to blows and Gru was able to subdue Hal with an enhanced Freeze Ray.
  • Ever since gaining his powers and being rejected, Hal has become all the more cynic and believes that idealism doesn't exist, comparing it to the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny and the Queen of England. However, said fantastical creatures do exist in the Pantheon and they felt pretty insulted by Tighten's claims. Bunnymund and Toothiana alongside the other guardians especially want to stop Hal not only for insulting them but because he is a dangerous person in general.
    • Queen Elizabeth I was also not amused to hear that Tighten believes she isn't real, questioning the man's intelligence.
  • He is supposed to resemble Jimmy Olsen but his nasty traits show that Hal and Jimmy have nothing in common. Tighten also has a grudge against Lois Lane for reminding him of Roxanne but he knows better than to kidnap her as it would quickly put him in hot water.
    • His name also seems to be a reference to two members of the Green Lantern Corps and both Hal Jordan and John Stewart felt insulted when they were both confused for Tighten. To counter this, Hal tried to become a lantern and he became interested in the Red Lantern Corps given that his constant rage towards everyone that thinks he is a joke would make him a good fit for the group. When he approached Atrocitus about it, he laughed at his face and promptly told him to piss off.
  • The House of Love and Affection seem to despise Tighten, not because of his looks but because of his awful behavior and his motivation being based on his obsession and entitlement towards Roxanne. Hal just brushes them off as a waste of time and only ever gets along with certain evil deities, like Gideon Graves who seems to be someone even more despised than Hal in the love department, only because he is a huge asshole. Even Hal finds him obnoxious sometimes and that's saying something.
    • He found more common ground with Vlad Masters, who too became evil after being rejected by the woman he loved. The two together would be a recipe for disaster but considering how Tighten can be a bit on the clumsy and dumb side, Vlad has given some time to develop Tighten as a more competent supervillain.
  • Decided to join the Grand United Alliance of Evil in order to avoid getting captured by the good guys and depowered again. Given his lack of intelligence, he tends to act as Dumb Muscle and even then he is quite scary for regular deities, females especially since they fear Hal would target them like he did with Roxanne. However, some of the Evil Genius type have complained that Hal tends to harass them unprovoked, probably given his disdain for Megamind and being reminded of him.
  • Often called an incel, a term which Hal is NOT happy to be referred at. Not many people say it to his face, considering he could met their face in seconds if he is nearby. Some people however like to make ginger jokes about Hal all the time, another thing he is not exactly thrilled to hear about.
  • He can also be found in Alignment Changes.
  • You see the good in everyone, even when it's not there. You're living a fantasy. There is no Easter Bunny, there is no Tooth Fairy, and there is no Queen of England! This is the real world, and you need to wake up!

    Lord Dominator 
Lord Dominator, Goddess of Evil With Bad Tastes In Jokes
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lord_dominator_32.jpg
  • Overdeity with her ship, Greater God with her suit. After her defeat is now just a Demigod.
  • Symbol: Her lava heart.
  • Theme Song: Her airship theme. Alternatively, I'm the Bad Guy.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: The better Lord Hater, Lost without a cause after destroying the galaxy, Season 2's Arc Villain, Enjoying her role as villain, Dark Action Girl, does not understand friendship even though she may hate loneliness, schadenfreude personified, Psychopathic Womanchild, Ultimately getting defeated and emotionally drained as her entire ship and army is destroyed much to her dismay
  • Domains: Lava, Ice, Destruction, Tasteless Jokes.
  • Allies (she calls them by any other name other than friends): The Grand United Alliance of Destruction, The Grand United Alliance of Evil, Crow (at least until he betrays her for her airship), The Lich, Dark Danny, Bill Cipher, Evolto
  • Rivals: Junko Enoshima, Azula, Zaheer, XANA
  • Enemies: Besides from anyone who tries to befriend her... the majority of deities within the Pantheon, biggest notes going to Lord Hater and Commander Peepers, Wander, Sylvia, Chou Chou, Discord, The Miser Brothers, Madoka Kaname and the Magical Girl Sisterhood, most noticeably Homura Akemi, Bowser and Bowser Jr., Samurai Jack, Ashi, Danny Phantom and his allies, Randall Ross and the Grand United Alliance of Machines
  • Opposes: The House of Nature for their flowers with pollen that give her allergies, Voltaire for leaving her without a answer on how to get other people to stop using her song, and Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider and Sans for their Karmic based powers. In terms of being too pathetic of villains for her to consider a threat, there's Plankton, Jack Splicer and Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz
  • Interested in: House of Fire and Heat, Aku
  • While the GUAD has been on a hot streak striking fear into the Pantheon's hearts thanks to a new ally in the form of The Shadow Monster, they were quickly annoyed to find out that the Pantheon was quick to react and form response teams dedicated to keeping The Shadow Monster at bay, including villainous deities as well. Quickly, Nekron devised a plan, ascend one more powerful deity that wants the destruction of everything in life and have their ascension become a surprise, causing the Pantheon to be thrown into a panic, and during this mess, finally, get the Shadow Monster to spread his influence across the Pantheon. Having heard of someone from Wander's tales of being a planet destroying, destruction loving villain to the point that she laughs at dark, tasteless jokes, Nekron immediately sent her an invitation to join the Pantheon. Unfortunately, there were several problems with her ascension...
  • She was furious to find out that Lord Hater was here, considering how he was the key factor in her downfall. He has made it no secret that he is still pissed at her and is plotting on ensuring that she never comes back into power, even teaming up with Sylvia and even Wander should it come to it. Sylvia and Commander Peepers are on the same page when it comes to her. Wander however still believes that she can be reformed, believing that her evil tendencies are just because she's lonely. He still visits her temple to give her fruit baskets. She only accepts them because she's hungry, and not because they're friends. Sylvia helps escort Wander over there to ensure he's still safe and to see Dominator's slowly increasing rage with him.
  • Her creator defined her as the personification of Schadenfreude, and it shows. Wander decided to introduce her to Madoka, due to how they have both experienced a similar fall from grace after they both got depowered.
  • Everyone thought Lord Dominator and Junko would happily team up to cause mayhem, but this was as far away from the truth as possible. They did talk, but it was at first for Junko to try and find out Wander's weaknesses and how to break his spirits. This led to Lord Dominator confess that she has no idea on how to get him to stop believing in people. Even after destroying nearly the entire galaxy, he still wanted to befriend her. While dissatisfied with her answer, she then inquired on how she spread despair across the galaxy. This only led into a debate with Junko arguing that destroying planets is too cheap and not personal enough to truly break the spirits of people, while Lord Dominator said that while causing people to cry is enjoyable, planet destroying was the fastest way to do so. They left the conversation with a mixed opinion of each other, planning on proving their despair spreading way as the best way.
  • She was surprised to not only see someone conquering planets but still be considered a hero, even if they were within the House of Villains. Regardless, Lord Dominator quickly grew annoyed and peeved at the girl for using her powers for good. The feeling is mutual, as Chou Chou doesn't want Lord Dominator to destroy any of her planets.
  • She got offered a partnership from Crow to help her build a new airship, especially after hearing of how awesome of a theme song she had sung for herself. After looking over and reviewing of his reputation, she decided to accept his offer, if only he was to do it for a fourth of his usual price. He agreed to the terms, saying how this ship would be even more powerful than their old ships combined, and how he would never leave a fellow villain out to suffer. He plans on backstabbing and ditching her once the ship is done and use it for himself. He is just as disturbed by her as anyone else, and is only keeping this alliance up just to ensure the ship would be stronger than his old airship.
    • On the topic of her song, while she was impressed to see how popular it was, she quickly grew peeved with seeing it used everywhere within the House of Villains, as she only sang it to get Wander and Hater to leave her alone with any ideas of dating her. She reached out to Voltaire, who experienced a similar problem with his songs being used by them, and his response boiled down to "It's your problem now, sucker."
  • Has gotten interested in the Miser Brothers, believing they hold a secret to how she can recreate her lava suit and army, theorizing that Heat Miser has some Volcanium X inside of him and his powers, while Snow Miser has some Frostonium she can use to regain her ice abilities. The brothers are however more than savvy enough to be aware of her, and would happily team up just to drive her away. She is currently toying with the idea of sending in more powerful villains to help her attempt to harness their powers.
    • Has also taken notice of the House of Fire and Heat, trying to see if there were any maligned deities who would help her regain her lava powers. Unfortunately, there were very few deities that shared her same interest and were willing to help her. She could only get approval from Ragnaros and Brand, and even than the good deities of the house would have collectively banned her from entering again. While she is smart enough to avoid any extra conflict, she is plotting the downfall of Ghost Rider, given how he was the biggest threat to her thanks to his Penance Stare, and she had more than a few misdeeds under her name.
      • She also has Sans on her hit list, given on how he not only has those same karmic powers, but also due to him constantly mocking and poking fun at her whenever they cross paths, ranging from effortlessly dodging her attacks and causing her to suffer for underestimating him, to simply pranking her with hot dog stacking and somehow managing to sneak on whoopee cushions on her shoes.
  • Upon finding out about Bowser's castle and his infamy for lava always surrounding it, she decided to investigate with a couple of weapons she borrowed from the GUAD to try and drain the lava for her own use. Bowser Jr was the first one to spot and notice her, going up to her to personally confront her about what she was doing, to which her response was to knock him into the lava. Suddenly, she found the shadow of the Koopa King quickly covering her, not happy at all with what he saw. Quickly grabbing and tossing her aside from her tools, he rescued his son from the lava before crushing the borrowed weapons Lord Dominator had brought with her. He then drove her away from his temple before launching countless fireballs from his mouth, and she has since sworn vengeance against the duo.
  • As a cartoon villain, she has brushed elbows with other cartoon villains...
    • She found great distaste in Jack Spicer and Plankton, both of which who think that destroying galaxies for fun may be taking things too far. She is in turn disgusted by them sometimes being flat out friendly with their enemies. At least she can safely say they aren't a threat to her...sometimes. Father was also someone who she was disgusted with, even spelling out how his downfall came to be. The only problem was, he still had some fire left in him, and after forcing her out of his temple, has been plotting to come back up to the main Pantheon to continue opposing her.
    • Lord Dominator was flat out turned off by Heinz suggesting that performing a Heel–Face Turn may not be a bad idea, as it worked out great for him. She since evaded him, screaming that she is not here to make friends.
    • She thought she could at least gain a partnership with Azula and Zaheer, laughing over how Zaheer poisoned Korra and bonding over how they have fire-based powers. She was shocked when they simply decided that she was a waste of time and not only declined a partnership, but also called her a destructive megalomaniac before storming off.
    • Upon seeing how destructive XANA's natural disaster attacks are, she quickly petitioned for an alliance with him to see how powerful XANA could be. The machine responded by possessing her and during the transforming process, managed to recreate her suit to place back onto her. Several deities who watched this for a second quickly realized this could quickly grow bad. Fortunately, Lord Hater was nearby when he heard the commotion, and after muscling his way in and seeing her suit, he quickly grew with green lightning that shined from all around him. He overwhelmed Lord Dominator enough to be told of the tower possessing her and zapping it...only to just recharge the suit and piss off XANA. The entire population of the House of Technology were forced to band together and aid in destroying the suit and tower.
      • Hater and Peepers would than later seek out XANA to ask about his motives, only to be told that he was trying to recreate her in his image as he was the most powerful deity he seen here by far. Of course, this is just a lie to win his favor so he would give XANA access to his own weaponry when Hater least expects it. Peepers could only facepalm as Hater bought this, realizing he would need some help from other deities, namely Sylvia, to stop Hater from forking over his armory to XANA.
      • Later, XANA would run a background of Lord Dominator's history with her robot minions, and the results to him are less than impressive. He quickly informed the GUAM about it and they have placed Lord Dominator at the top of their hit list should she ever get her powers back, and XANA has sworn off possessing her ever again, not only because he recognized how bad it would be if she gained free control of her body and her suit, but also because he just hated using the same scheme twice.
    • That said, she still gained some new partners from the search. She ended up being approved by the Lich for her destructive nature but still wants her to keep the laughter down a bit. Not because he's horrified she's enjoying it, it's because it gets grating fast. She doesn't have that problem with Dark Danny although, even sometimes going down to the town to cause some damage while chortling. Of course, this just puts her on the radar of all of Danny Phantom's allies to come together to help stop them.
    • Lastly, she was greatly disappointed to hear that Aku, who had the same kind of humor as her and was also very powerful by himself, was dead. Even if he preferred misery over death, she thought they could still be great allies. She has started to take her role within the GUAE more seriously to help restore him. Jack and Ashi plan to thwart her at every possible step.
    • For now, she can at least have fun laughing at the expense of other deities with Bill Cipher, who may find the GUAD boring, but would at least give her a spaceship should he get another chance to bring forth "Weirdmageddon". He has yet to tell her said ship would be alive and would likely swallow her whole once she stepped foot inside it.
  • "That... was... Amazing! *chuckle* They were all like, 'What, who was this guy!?' Ha! Then I was like, serious, then I was all, 'HURAAGH!' And then the lava was, 'whoosh', and they were all, 'AAAHH! NOO! WHYY!?' *chortle* What a bunch of dorks. This is going to be... Fun!"

    Azula 
Azula, Goddess of Villainous Breakdowns (Princess Azula)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/azula_full.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The Fire Nation Insignia
  • Theme Song: Azula's Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Siblings Who Hate Each Other, Sociopathy, Master Strategist, Extreme Villain Competence, Villains Who Lose Their Cool, The Dragon, Aloof Dark-Haired Girl, Playing with Fire and Lightning, Dark Action Girl, Evil Teenagers, Sadist, Dragon Lady.
  • Domains: Evil, Fire, Madness, Avarice.
  • Followers: Jasper, Clementine, Joseph Seed, every non-ascended Ace Attorney villain
  • Superiors: Father and Dante (Fullmetal Alchemist)
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Mele, Larxene
  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: Vergil
  • Opposed by: Byakuya Kuchiki
  • Fears: Alucard
  • Special Relationship: Zuko (her brother), Ozai (her father)
  • Respects: Lady Macbeth
  • The daughter, youngest child, and "born lucky" Tyke Bomb of Fire Lord Ozai, Princess Azula served as a lieutenant to Ozai's rule over the Fire Nation. Her calculated brilliance and psychotic tenacity produced key victories for her people in the Hundred Year War. First installed in the Pantheon as the the Goddess of Villainous Breakdowns following her tragic downfall which culminated at the end of the War, she was last heard sobbing miserably and shrieking incoherent revenge on her brother, her friends, the entire Water Tribe, and Revolver Ocelot.
    • After much therapy and soul-searching, she ascended back into the Pantheon as the Goddess of Evil Sisters. Now that she is back, she will now act on her vengeance, starting with her brother and Katara.
  • When Azula came back for her new position, Blackfire…actually became friends with her. They bonded over their experience with their siblings, and Azula took the position without a fight. Blackfire then settled for High Priestess, a dynamic which lasted a long while until Azula was thrust back into her former seat, forcing Blackfire out of her temple.
  • Even though Mandy and Azula share the same house, they wish not to be allies. Why? Because they sound the same, and both of them think the other is too extreme in her methods.
    • She also harbors extreme dislike towards Li-Ming, as she considered her everything she would have aspired to be, being ambitious, prideful, powerful, but then tainted with silly notions like altruism, and even worse, she mostly succeeded where Azula failed. And having the same voice to boot. Plus she's friends with Zuko. Needless to say, she's VERY envious of Li-Ming.
  • Shishio Makoto believes that despite her occasional bouts of paranoia, her ruthlessness and use of strength and fear has interested him in the idea that she should join him, possibly for The Ten Swords.
  • Was challenged to a game of Go by Cao Cao, and impressed him with the fact that in most of the games she wins nearly half of the time. He has decided to try and have her under the banner of The Wei Forces.
  • Apparently Frieza has aligned with Azula in the interest of some version of Earth having a "proper ruler". Whatever purpose is behind this, most agree that it can't be good.
  • In Azula's eyes, Rin Okumura, son of Satan, fellow wielder and current God of the Blue Flame, really should've followed his father's will and taken over the Earth together, and his refusal to do so is "a sign of pathetic weakness on his part". Azula made sure to let him know that when they met. Predictably, they don't get along too well.
  • Much overlooked in Azula's story is the fact that she does genuinely love her family and friends at least to some extent…but The Social Darwinist philosophy taught to her by her father and his military system has contorted that love into all kinds of twisted knots. For example, the revelation that her gameplan for "revenge" against Zuko has nothing to do with destroying him or causing his downfall, but rather corrupting him into becoming the same type of leader as herself and Ozai, one who leads by strength through fear, so as to make herself the power behind his throne, came as a shock to many deities in the Pantheon despite making total sense as something she would do. It also caused some concern, given Zuko's attempts to rehabilitate his sister and get her to join the side of the altruists; now, many see it as not a matter of if the fire siblings will overcome their differences, but when and for what side.
    • Byakuya Kuchiki, among others, hopes Zuko wins the Fire siblings' moral tug-of-war. She is not happy about this.
  • Recently found herself confronted by Führer King Bradley of Amestris, who engaged her in combat, testing her blue flame and lightning against his Ultimate Eye and superhuman reflexes. He was able to dodge just about everything she threw at him, while she used her firebending to protect herself from his onslaught. Impressed, Bradley inquired as to her plans for Zuko, and offered to give her allies to help her fulfill said plans…in the form of his siblings, the Homunculi, and a new High Command team he was setting up to aid his Father. While tentative about trusting Bradley and company, she agreed to be a part of said team. The team's other lead commander, Esdeath, took something of a shine to her.
    • Vergil, a power-seeking half-demon who she found somewhat intriguing, was initially member to this team but turned traitor after an incident. Azula still hopes to have a fascinating conversation with the blue devil…even if she has to shoot him with lightning to say hello or goodbye.
  • The entire House of Beast fears and hates her, due to hearing what she enjoys doing to animals. Because of this extra security, supervision and defenses have been placed around it. Fortunately, several of its members like Arceus and Godzilla are too much even for Azula. She doesn't care, since in her own words she 'has other fish to fry instead'.
  • Gets along surprisingly well with Draco Malfoy, possibly due to how their fans treat both of them. However Draco feels uneasy around Azula since she has done things even he personally finds disgusting. There are many who suspect her 'friendship' is actually a ploy to get her more power. Only time will tell if this is true, but one thing is certain- whatever happens, it won't be good.
  • Because of Mai and Ty Lee's betrayal as well as being overthrown by Revolver Ocelot, Nerissa, David Xanatos and Bugs Bunny, one of Azula's first goals when she re-ascended was to acquire some followers... er, 'allies'. While she had amassed the help of Frieza, Esdeath, Cinder Fall, Shego, the New High Command and Homunculi, she also had succeeded in gaining some enemies:
    • Samurai Jack and Ashi both detest Azula due to her having the same personality and voice of Ashi's mother. While neither an encounter nor a fight has happened between them yet, it is safe to assume the feelings are mutual.
    • Queen Elsa despite her kindness and nice disposition also isn't too fond of Azula, due to using her elemental powers to hurt others and being an evil sister. Azula being, well Azula hates Elsa with a burning passion due to her being a Queen (while Azula is still a Princess), having a nice family and (adding insult to injury) befriending her brother Zuko. Because of this Azula has vowed to melt or zap the Ice Queen one day. For now though, all of the other Gods and Goddesses have managed to make sure this hasn't happened.
    • Had the misfortune of making an enemy of Alucard as well. When she met the No Life King, in her typical arrogance she declared herself superior and that killing Alucard would be easy for her fire and lightningbending, while calling him a 'dog' as an insult. Since she reminded him of the Millenium Nazis (or he was just feeling bored), Alucard gladly accepted a battle. Obviously, things didn't go well for her... It's unknown how exactly the 'battle' between them went, but according to rumors the words 'dog food', 'dog shit' and something about a 'hug' were heard. For weeks after this event, Alucard was searching for Azula itching for amusement and a rematch, while she was nowhere to be seen. After she eventually came out, the Fire Nation Princess refused to remember this event and ever speak about it (as well as burning off the tongue of everyone who asks her about it). Ever since, Azula has learned that not all gods can be killed even with her fire and lightning, so she is avoiding the Nosferatu like the plague. Needless to say, Alucard is one of the few beings that makes Azula absolutely terrified.
    • She decided to hurt Mithra, due to to her annoying the Fire Princess with her silly preachings about good, love, peace and altruism. Bad idea. As soon as Asura caught wind of this, he put Azula on his shit list and promised that if she ever so much as made his daughter cry, he would squash her like a puny bug. It also didn't help that he had made friends with Avatar Aang. When Azula found out that Asura is a much more powerful foe (not to mention he has killed far more powerful beings than she has ever faced), she decided to avoid him and Durga as well. Like Mandy she may be evil and cunning, but even she knows when she is outclassed.
    • Once decided it would be fun to try and burn some plants when she was in a particular mood. Unfortunately, those plants were in Poison Ivy's gardens. Poison Ivy, who is immensely protective of the plants in her garden. Also in Poison Ivy's gardens are a set of mutated man-eating plants. Luckily for the Princess, Batman, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn were on hand to slowly try to (A) talk Ivy's rage down, and (B) pry Azula out of the plant. Even so, she narrowly escaped with her life. Predictably, she is not grateful.
  • "Well what choice do I have? Trust is for fools! Fear is the only reliable way. Even you [mother] fear me."
  • Also present in Types of Sadness.

  • Superior: Demise
  • Allies: Ganondorf, Lord Chaos, Garland, Zant, Mard Geer Tartaros, Gul'dan, Ten Commandments.
  • Enemies: Link, Zelda, Laharl, Etna, Sicily, Midna, Fi
  • Rivals: The rest of the Demon section in the House of Otherness
  • Followers: Daemon, Phil the Prince of Insufficient Light, Hunson Abadeer, Royce Lashiec.
  • Demon Lord Ghirahim's existence was in limbo after the events of his quest to revive his master, Demise. His strong ego, however, led his consciousness to the Pantheon, where he regained his normal form and made a big spectacle of his entrance.
  • Ghirahim immediately took to the first house to catch his fancy- the demon section of the House of Otherness. With his magic powers and waves of Bokoblins, he took the House of Otherness by storm and settled upon his new throne within the house. He tried taking over, but the other demons would not hear it. They had a fight, and while Ghirahim lost, they allowed him the title of God of Demon Lords and Archdevils, at the very least. While he took the seat, Ghirahim has made it known that he hasn't given up taking over.
  • The notion of an alleged Demon Overlord like Laharl being a Noble Demon makes Ghirahim feel FURIOUS! OUTRAGED! SICK WITH ANGER! Many times Ghirahim has challenged Laharl for his throne. And every time, Laharl's massive level grinding has managed to keep Ghirahim at bay.
  • On the subject of Ghirahim being frowns all around, he had noticed that Link was also in the Pantheon, though he may not be the same Link that faced him. Ghirahim plans to exact revenge on Link anyway.
    • It also did not fill his heart with rainbows to discover Zelda's presence in the Pantheon, either. He feels that this is just rubbing salt in the wound.
  • Many gods in the Pantheon are equally disturbed and impressed by his Overly Long Tongue. Greninja included.
  • Ganondorf is considered to be Demise's legacy, in a manner of speaking, and as such, Ghirahim has the utmost respect for him. They've formed a tentative alliance. This, however, is a charade. Ghirahim plans to use Ganondorf as a pawn to bring Demise into the Pantheon, using a certain method.
    • Ghirahim believes that he do a similar ritual to one Yuga pulled off- He will find Demise's consciousness and infuse Ganondorf's body with it, allowing Demise to take over Ganondorf's body and have all of Ganondorf's powers.
  • The relationship between Garland and Chaos reminds Ghirahim of his own with Demise, and he enjoys the evil and bloodshed that the two of them cause. Plans have been made for a possible alliance between Garland, Chaos, and Demise, should he ever ascend.
  • Ghirahim takes great pride in his body's form and abilities, and will rant about it at length prior to fights, mixed in with descriptions of the torture he'll inflict on his opponent. When the chips are down, he'll go into One-Winged Angel form.
  • Seeing what a Blood Knight he is (due to being a weapon), he's regularly seen in the House of Combat, whenever he's not seeing to any of his schemes.
  • Wound up forming a Villainous Friendship with Zant due to his blind devotion to Ganondorf. The two both served him loyally when Hyrule's timelines were merged. That said, Ghirahim is well aware that Zant's devotion is specifically towards Ganondorf, and that when he tries to use him to revive Demise, they'll probably become enemies.
    • Has formed a strong alliance with Mard Geer over their similar positions to their respective masters. Ghirahim is also impressed with the Underworld King's devotion to his master, E.N.D., and has offered his aid in resurrecting him, citing Mard Geer as a kindred spirit.
  • Now that Demise has ascended, he has the utmost amount of joy. He now seeks a way for him to regain his true form.

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Cooler, Majin Buu, the Saiyan Army (Paragus, Bardock, Nappa, Raditz, Turles), Lord Drakkon and his army, Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader (more on his end), Zechs Merquise
  • Enemies: Most if not all of the Dragon Team, but especially Son Goku, Vegeta and Krillin, both Brolys, all Sailor Senshi, every team of Super Sentai and Power Rangers in existence, and by extension all good-aligned Kamen Riders
  • Friendly Enemy: Gohan, Goten and Trunks (but not Gotenks)
  • Annoy(s): Grand Admiral Thrawn, surprisingly enough
  • Avoids: The House of Canines (Guldo)
  • Established approximately around the time that King Cold retired to let his son Frieza take the reins of the Planet Trade Organization, the Ginyu Force are among the only soldiers in the Galactic Cold/Frieza Force that Frieza doesn't display any form of malice towards. Basically, if Zarbon and Dodoria are Frieza's Co-Dragons and chiefs of staff, Ginyu and his team are Frieza's Navy SEALs, an elite mercenary platoon that ranks outside of the main system, the cream of the crop of Frieza's elite. That all changed when Frieza requested that they intervene on Planet Namek to obtain the planet's Dragon Balls after Zarbon and Dodoria were killed by Vegeta. They should have just continued to Planet Yardrat as initially planned, because said intervention decimated the team's ranks courtesy of Goku and Vegeta, with only Captain Ginyu surviving in the body of a Namekian frog. And now, Frieza has gotten them ascended to the Pantheon to bolster the growing forces he has in supply.
  • They were initially planned to ascend under the trope Ass Kicking Pose, before it was decided that Evil Is Hammy was practically tailor-made for them. The reason? They are among the most dramatic and hammy villains ever, posing, role-calling and everything. They take it seriously and their power can justify being so cheesy. In fact, the first criteria in order to enter battle isn't strength, but choreography. This was a near unanimous decision on the part of the Court of the Gods, and Ginyu is thankful as they can serve their rightful lord and master once again.
  • Applies to all of them:
    • It's been tough for them since they've ascended and enlisted in the Grand United Alliance of Evil, and their position is tenuous to say the least. Ever since they all died, the rest of Frieza's elite has levelled up in power, which means they no longer occupy the same exclusivity they had when they were living. In fact, when they stepped into GUAE headquarters for the first time, they received a tsunami of laughter from the villains there. The only saving grace is that Frieza has undergone enough Character Development to embrace the team once again with open arms. He has tasked Ginyu with getting the team up to snuff with the rest of the Force, saying this:
    Frieza: Ginyu, you're no longer the best of the best in the Frieza Force, and especially in a place like this, you never will be. But I have high hopes for you all. So, as is my decree, do your team a favour, train them up, and make them useful again!
    • The team is still among the most powerful of Frieza's soldiers and occupy a 'High-Level Executive Class' within the Frieza Force. Only this time, others share that privilege, including Tagoma.
    • The Ginyu Force has a counterpart in the form of Cooler's Armored Squadron, a three-man elite squad under Frieza's brother Cooler. The Ginyu Force is very unimpressed with the three of them in terms of their choreography and timing and look down on their poses as amateurish and unrefined. As of today, the two groups are still at an impasse, with the exception of Salza (see below).
      • Such criticism goes both ways. They used to have a member named Bonyu, but she left because she just couldn't understand the appeal of the whole 'posing' thing.
    • They're all a bit miffed that no one thought of reviving them using the Dragon Balls, especially Ginyu. Then again, Frieza didn't even bother bringing his father back when he was resurrected, so they haven't dwelled too long on it. Guldo suggested using the Dragon Balls to raise their power levels, which Ginyu strongly rejected since such an abuse of their power would surely count as treason before Lord Frieza and warrant a quick execution.
    • They already despise Vegeta with all their heart and soul for putting an end to the lot of them. In other timelines where Vegeta was able to get stronger than Ginyu at 100% on Namek, Vegeta will at least entertain the notion of taking over the Ginyu Force or replacing them with his own unit. Typical of Vegeta, he now views them as nothing more than target practice.
    • They (or, at the very least, Ginyu himself) respect Goku's son Gohan for his own knowledge of the "Super Sentai" Stance, which he well may have learned while facing them on Namek. While he is their enemy, Ginyu recognizes him as a Worthy Opponent, and would consider him a fine addition to the force otherwise as the Great Saiyaman. Trunks and Goten, Gohan's younger brother, think their poses are super cool and enjoy watching their antics, which they're grateful for. Ginyu believes that they lack style and substance but they have the right mind and attitude, and may one day be amazing. But professionally, he accepts they're on opposite sides and, thus, destined to clash. Their fusion Gotenks, on the other hand, is too stiff in his own poses for their taste, yet he keeps insisting THEY're the lame ones. Goku is remarkably cool with them, but only because his power level is leagues above theirs now.
    • You know who they don't respect? Any Toku hero that exists period. They think that their tacky poses are inferior to theirs and that they should back down from such habits in the future. Ginyu and Jeice were especially unimpressed with how tactically ineffective the use of explosions is in Sentai roll calls, intentionally making a jab at the non-ascended Dynamen.
    • One of their first assignments was with the Galactic Empire's Seventh Fleet, when they were temporarily housed aboard the ISD Chimaera to assist in tracking down a rampant Bio-Broly, which was bombarded to death by turbolaser fire. Many complaints were made for their general disruption and the fact that Guldo's Time Master abilities seemed to be affecting areas which it wasn't supposed to (which especially bothered Rukh), which reached the ears of Captain Pellaeon and eventually Thrawn himself, who was forced to remove them. He was sorry to have to do it, since they are actually useful soldiers in spite of their cheesy dramatics, but it had to be done since such wild behaviour leads to Stuff Blowing Up. Ironically enough, it was Thrawn (with Frieza's approval) who ended up deciding their current position in the Frieza Force. The Ginyu Force has since gotten plenty of military resources with Thrawn's help to make them a more portable unit (their normal cramped space pods are a logistical nightmare) politically insulated from GUAE politics. Other freebies include a personal training area, a modified Gozanti-class cruiser and personal Imperial-era TIEs to make up for their deficiencies in power. As a result of this, the Force has gained a new brand of infamy in the Pantheon.
    • It's taken a lot of training and some experimentation, but Ginyu finally discovered a trump card to regain their past respect in the GUAE. The Five-Way Fusion Technique, an Ultra Fusion, combines and increases their power high enough to match at least the current Super Saiyan 3 and likely much much higher. However, this fusion is a Godzilla Threshold that the Ginyu Force never uses for the sake of self-preservation. After all, it's not worth having a secret weapon if you only get to use it once.
    • Known to be party animals when off-duty on the disco floor of the Villain Pub. The Ginyu Force sometimes performs in the Pub's nightclub while Ginyu sits to the side downing a good glass of chianti. They've moved on from betting candy to betting heaps of cash in the pub's weekly lottery, which Recoome of all people seems to profit a lot off.
    • The Ginyu Force gets along well with the Monstars, who have challenged the Ginyu Force to a friendly game of basketball while they were off-duty. The Ginyu Force are among the favourites to win because Guldo's Psychic Powers and Burter's Super Speed lend themselves well to basketball. They also get along with the Team Rocket trio and work with them often. With their abysmal success rate, Ginyu thinks they could use the extra muscle.
  • Exclusive to Captain Ginyu:
    • The leader of the Ginyu Force (it's named after him), he was once a member of Cooler's Armored Squadron, and was pitted against Salza for leadership of the team before being integrated into Frieza's team instead. His special ability is "Body Change", switching bodies with the verbal command "Change, Now!". This special ability ended up biting him in the ass, when he unintentionally ended up in the body of a Namekian frog. He was later transported to Earth in his frog body, later becoming the king of the frog pond near Capsule Corporation, and promptly forgotten. Until Super, after a body-switch and brief fight as Frieza's new top warrior Tagoma ended up in him unceremoniously killed off by Vegeta. After a stint in Hell (and some team-ups with his boss to escape), he was ascended.
    • When the Ginyu Force was re-united in Hell, after a heartwarming, tearful greeting, Captain Ginyu ordered his men to find and torture any dead being who resembled a frog, the rest of the Ginyu Force were confused as to why they were given the order and have asked Ginyu as to why they were given such a specific task… he refuses to answer the question to this day. Ginyu is so tight-lipped about his time as a frog that even his own team didn't know about it for a full year until told by Frieza and dismissed such rumours as false. They have privately sworn never to mention the subject again in front of him.
    • Ginyu has made it a personal goal to max out his power level, not just because he wants to prove his continued worth to Lord Frieza, but also to one-up his rival Tagoma. Since Ginyu pulled a Grand Theft Me on Tagoma in Super and got killed for his trouble immediately after, Tagoma absolutely despises Ginyu for trapping him in the body of a frog. This feeling is mutual since Tagoma dared exceed his power level, more so his entire team combined. He has compensated by training with his team in their personal training area. Thanks to his own training sessions in the Room of Spirit and Time, he greatly raised his power level to triple his power when in Tagoma's body, about 578 trillionnote . Still nothing on Vegeta's power level or Frieza (in their decillions and octillions respectively), but it's an astounding improvement.
    • To compensate for his team's deficiencies, he's been seeking alternatives with Thrawn's assistance. He's the one who procured most of the team's new equipment, including their ship, a modified Gozanti-class cruiser and their personal TIEs. Ginyu pilots a TIE Advanced x1 with purple highlights, which he used to great effect in bombing runs, especially that one on Frieza Planet 419. He considers this ride far less flashy than Zarbon's TIE Defender Elite. Thrawn has compared him favourably to one of his best pilots, Captain Vult Skerris.
    • He abuses his special ability whenever possible, which is at its best when fighting among a crowd of other soldiers where it can seem like he's teleportingnote . This strategy is proving less and less effective given that at least one psychic hero is somehow present at any given battlefield to astrally punt his consciousness back into his own body. When it is effective, watch out.
    • Is contractually obligated under King Cold and Cooler to perform the Dance of Joy and the Daddy's Little Princess Dance respectively for his boss after each successful mission. This is still the case in the Pantheon, despite Frieza's best efforts.
    • In his downtime, he works with Taskmaster as a drill instructor for the GUAE. He has to respect the man's talent. After succeeding in jumpstarting a training programme specifically to turn out ki fighters, he was awarded the Distinguished Service to Evil Medal (a standard decoration in the GUAE), which he wears proudly. One graduating class made up of clone troopers later became Indigo Company of the 87th Battalion of the 501st Legion led by Clone Captain CT-6874 "Taichou", which Ginyu commands when he's around.
    • Don't be fooled; while Ginyu acts like a Drill Sergeant Nasty on-duty, when he's not fighting someone, he's actually a pretty chill guy. Among some of Dragon Ball's cult favourites, he can be seen signing autographs for his new book, Ginyu: King of the Pond, his biography on life as a frog in Bulma's pond. He didn't enjoy having to write it, but was told that it would sell, and with all their new kit, a bit of extra cash is never a bad thing.
    • Whenever Captain Ginyu is questioned by Recoome if the body he has is his original one, Ginyu's response has always been the same: if Recoome can beat him in Rock-Paper-Scissors he'll tell him the truth, if Recoome loses, he has to buy space sodas for the whole force. The Ginyu Force have enjoyed free space soda on behalf of Recoome for many years now. If Recoome knew that Salza knows what Ginyu's original body looked like, he'd bother him to no end.
    • One of the most experienced officers in the Frieza Force, he's had plenty of life lessons, most eminently that strength and hard work is more important than wealth. He attended a seminar by resident billionaire Scrooge McDuck because he reminded Ginyu of his early days experimenting with his Ability by switching bodies with the richest boy in his elementary school class. Scrooge on his part was interested in Ginyu for this and the two maintain at the very least a cordial relationship.
    • He's painfully aware that his group's penchant for dramatics has made them a bit of a laughing stock and mocked Memetic Mutation, so he sympathizes with deities who have been ruined in the Pantheon because of that. He's thus made friends with Anavel Gato, who despite being a model soldier is vilified in the Pantheon for his explosive ascension and hammy quotes. Together, they have started a self-help group for villains suffering from such Villain Decay.
    • Can reportedly fuse with Frieza to form "Ginyuza". No one, including Ginyu himself, is rushing to try this.
  • Exclusive to Jeice:
    • Jeice is Ginyu's Number Two, and a loud and proud Space Australian hailing from Space Brisbane. While unquestionably loyal to Captain Ginyu and Lord Frieza, he's been chided for being a Dirty Coward and leaving Recoome and Burter to die. Kinda makes you wonder if Ginyu ever sourced his candidates for his platoon properly. He has apologized for his actions in Hell and has sworn to improve himself in the Pantheon. Thanks to many long hours of training (he once trained for up to six weeks straight) and recording his power level, he has managed to raise his power level from 40,000 to 95,000 (his Dragon Ball Z: Sagas power level), then 5 trillion (during the Pantheonic Rebellion) and after what seemed like an eternity, 236 trillionnote .
      • He has indeed improved in attitude by Taking the Bullet for his incapacitated partner Burter from Hit, who was sent to assassinate Burter.
    • Created his Signature Move, the Crusher Ball, during his time as a Galactic Little League baseball player. No one knows why he switched to rugby. 2013 left Jeice in a very bitter mood as his beloved Space Broncos failed to qualify for the finals of Space NRL season finals for the first time since 2010 and Space Australia were beaten by Space British and Irish Lions in the 2013 Space British and Irish Lions Tour to Space Australia. He only fully recovered from the shock when they won by 53 to 0 against the Space Newcastle Knights in 2016.
    • Comes from the same planet as Salza, leader of Cooler's Armored Squadron, and they have a bitter rivalry dating back to the Force's early days, arguing about who the better fighter is. More tellingly, Salza knows all of Jeice's darkest secrets, because they are cousins. Especially with regard to his accent...
    Salza (to Jeice): Mon pauvre cousin, are your self-esteem issues so bad that you call yourself Space Australian? Look at that cockney accent, imbécile, you are clearly from Space London, not Space Brisbane!
    Jeice: Then why are you faking a Space French accent, mate? You goddamn wanker, we were born on the same planet!! Sometimes I wish you died before I did...
    Salza: (starts crying)
    Jeice: Ohhhhh....
    • Still others have claimed that his accent is Liverpudlian, Scottish or Brummie.
    • As a fan of rugby, he's a frequent visitor to the House of Sports and has even posted an application to become a color commentator for the local rugby league so he could add to his falling salary, citing the Namekimania 2011. The Frieza Force isn't known for its handsome salaries. Failing that, he appealed to Wiz and Boomstick for a position in DEATH BATTLE!. He was briefly a part-time intern, recording info from battles for them to use in simulations until Ginyu pointed out that this would look like treason before Frieza and Conquest High Command.
    • Jeice may have found another partner: Ali al-Saachez. They both share a taste for bloodshed and love proving their superiority, just that Jeice is far less likely to want to step in the blood. They are both mercenaries, so Jeice, Burter and Ali carpool their list of targets for the week and coordinate when necessary.
    • Jeice's Vitriolic Best Buds bond with Ali got him thinking of adding a Mobile Suit befitting of his standards to his arsenal, which he used to deadly effect against a haywire Android 21 that was raiding GUAE machinery storage areas. He originally went with a MS-14B Gelgoog Hi-Mobility Type until the Pantheonic Rebellion, where the suit was caught in a surprise attack from Metatron and irreparably damaged, something Jeice still holds a grudge over. He upgraded to a GN Drive Tau-equipped SVMS-01O Over Flag painted in his personal red and white colour scheme and refitted for close combat in conjunction with Burter's mid-range mobile suit. Thanks to Dr. Gero's reluctant input, Jeice's unit has a built-in Energy Absorber (in addition to the Ki-Translator, a generator that can transmute ki into energy blasts) that can absorb ki like his Androids can, and Jeice has made good use of this function to raise his power level, if only slightly. Ginyu has warned him about becoming over-reliant on such a Story-Breaker Power, lest the GUAG and especially Vegeta take it for themselves. Jeice's other ride is far less flashy, an unaltered TIE/IN Interceptor with red highlights.
    • Like Zarbon and Salza, Jeice is a Narcissist, a trait which the force believes is hurting his ability to reach his limits. He is very proud of his mullet, and was very offended when Steve Small listed the mullet as one of the world's many mistakes. If he didn't know that Mr. Small was a hippie counsellor who had some strange ideas about alternative medicine, he would have killed him.
    • He partners with Burter for Combination Attacks, which actually are effective deterrents against unaltered Badass Normal fighters. Their Purple Spiral Flash was once used to decimate an enemy base in the House of Power.
      • It is rumoured that they have a derivative attack, the "Seizure Procedure", essentially the same but with flashing red and blue energy, guaranteed to either incapacitate an opponent via seizure or cause epilepsy. They both agree that doing so over a populated area would cause plenty of medical issues, so they don't use it unless the going gets tough.
  • Exclusive to Burter:
    • Burter is the resident strategist of the Ginyu Force, a cosmic speedster who partners with Jeice for Combination Attacks, a bit contradictory since he's the tallest of the bunch. His signature Super Speed comes from his abusive mother, who would slap him if he was late preparing dinner. He's very proud of his agility and fancies himself as the fastest man in the universe.
    • Matching this attitude, he's chosen to gear for speed when it comes to equipment. His spacecraft of choice, a TIE Avengernote  painted in his signature blue, is faster than the average Interceptor and has given new meaning to his chosen nickname, the Blue Hurricane. He wanted a TIE Defender, but demand proved too high. He thinks it's a bit too advanced for his taste. He does have an alternative: a GNX-903VW Brave (Commander Test Type) stolen from the GUAG Gundam Corps hangar by mutual friend 'Prince' Ali al-Saachez after the Pantheonic Rebellion.
    • While he does have Super Speed, he's very insecure about it. He refuses to acknowledge it as he is otherwise the group's big blue snake guy, and only Jeice got him to open up about itnote . It should be noted that while Burter is indeed very fast, he cannot maintain this agility in combat, so his speed when fighting is comparatively average.
    • Burter is thus a Green-Eyed Monster towards bonafide speedsters in the Pantheon, and has taken an interest in Barry Allen and Wally West. When he discovered that their overwhelming speed and time travel abilities were thanks to the Speed Force, he and Guldo approached Dr. Gero to find a way to tap into the cosmic force. No one knows what Gero's subsequent experiments were, but physicals indicate that Burter's combat speed has increased by at least 40%. His power level was estimated to be 7,000,000,000 during the Pantheonic Rebellion and stolen intelligence confirms it to be around 192 trillionnote  now.
    • Grudgingly works with Eobard Thawne and Hunter Zolomon to leech Barry's powers, but both of them agree he's a poser.
    • Since he's a mutant of his species, it was reasonable that Training from Hell courtesy of his chores would give him Super Speed but he's incredulous that a normal man doing the same got limitless potential and invulnerability. He hates Saitama for this but leaves him alone for fear of receiving one of his signature punches.
    • There's a possibility that he might be gay, if Guldo's word is any indication. Burter has declined to comment.
  • Exclusive to Recoome:
    • The Brute of the team, Recoome is their most flamboyant member, striking poses more often than Ginyu himself. However, this goofy exterior hides a remarkable intellect. And equally-remarkable sadism. He relishes the prospect of beating enemies up, so he's the guy you probably don't want to be killed by. Especially now that his power level has increased to 113 trillionnote  since his ascension and extensive training regimen.
    • Supposedly the most PR-conscious of the crew. He knows his own hype (much like Vegeta) and it shows. At least a while before Namek, he was already selling all sorts of Recoome-based merchandisenote . He's already started a fan site for the team, citing that the added following will help secure their position in the Pantheon.
    • He pilots a TIE/rb heavy starfighter with orange highlights for short-range missions and uses it as a bunker-buster. Its heavy laser cannon can supposedly be used to deliver Recoome's signature attack, the Recoome Eraser Gun, a mouth energy wave capable of destroying a planetary region. Because of this, Recoome's TIE is basically a flying Wave-Motion Gun.
    • Don't mess with him. Don't start a fight with him. Don't even think about crossing him. You know why?
    Recoome: Because the name's RECOOME! And it rhymes WITH DOOM! And YOOOU'RE gonna be hurtin'! ALL! TOO! SOOOOOON!!
    • Having seen Recoome's performance against Vegeta, Vince McMahon has entered talks with Recoome into signing a ten year deal with WWE. However, negotiations have hit a road block in light of Recoome’s supposedly outrageous wage demands. The deal is still pending.
    • Has something against steroids feeling that they reduce the thrill of the battle when you know that the added strength is artificial. He really doesn't know whether to like or hate Bane given that his first dose of Venom was administered unwillingly. Bane sees him as nothing more than an insect.
    • Doomguy tried suing Recoome for using his theme song for himself and they agreed to meet at the House of War to sort things out. The subsequent battle destroyed Doomguy's sub-house and knocked the nearby Master Chief unconscious. Because really, who brings guns to a mouth cannon fight? Recoome maintains his innocence in the matter, since his usage of the song was technically fair use.
    • Likes putting his name in front of all his attacks. Recoome Elbow™, Recoome Dive™, Recoome Kick™, you name it.
  • Exclusive to Guldo:
    • Guldo is nowhere near as powerful as his teammates, and for all his efforts, seems to always be the team's Cosmic Plaything. His special ability of telekinesis and freezing time, while nice, is nothing compared to the powerhouses in the Pantheon. Nevertheless, he proved his worth to join the Ginyu Force so they wouldn't have it any other way.
    • He can't but feel like he's treated like crap by the team, and has a severe inferiority complex as a result. Ginyu says it's to make him grow thicker skin. He isn't exactly innocent either, since he spent his early years using his powers to look up girl's skirts and steal toys. If it wasn't already clear, he's a creep.
    • Guldo hates Vegeta more than the rest because he bullied him for his bad breath and/or his appearance. Vegeta even made it a habit to throw a dog biscuit at him whenever he saw him. Guldo hates being treated this way, and avoids the House of Canines like the plague. He can't stand it when patrons of said house start throwing dog biscuits. Just as well that he doesn't know that the ruler of Earth in his world is a dog...
    • On April Fool's Day, Burter pranked Guldo by giving him a box of dog biscuits for lunch, un-amused and angry, Guldo used his special ability to summon a steamroller to crush Burter, but even after stopping time, Burter was quick enough to dodge the steamroller.
    • This had some unintended consequences: pissing off Jotaro and Dio. Jotaro, because he really doesn't want to deal with a "Dio knock-off", as he so eloquently put it, and Dio, for performing one of his finest attacks so poorly. Dio actually made a good point during their spat:
    Dio: My dear Frog-Man, you are but a pale imitation of my own greatness. Stop trying so hard to be like me. 'ZA WARUDO!'note  and steamrollers are hardly essential to your attacks.
    Guldo: Pretty sure you're the imitation here. Haven't you watched the anime?
    Dio: The first chronicle of your exploits, the manga was in 1990, mine was in 1987. Go on. Check. I, Dio, insist, you unworthy brat.
    Guldo: (at a loss for words)
    • Joined Burter in Dr. Gero's experiment in tapping into the Speed Force. While Burter came out with a limited ability to tap into the Speed Force, Guldo came out with a limited ability to harness the power of its opposite number, the Still Force. This has drastically increased his power level from the 10,000s range to about 87 trillionnote . His power is still laughable compared to that of the Dragon Team, but such a drastic increase makes him much more of a credible threat. Hopes to get Turtle, one of the Flash's enemies ascended so they can team up.
    • Originally piloted a normal TIE Fighter due to budget constraints, but later on Ginyu threw him a bone and gifted him on his birthday with a modified TIE Interceptor with green highlights and a more capable hyperdrive than the one in Jeice's Interceptor, with the caveat that he use it to perform long-range reconnaissance missions and be useful for once.
    • As you can see from all this, Guldo's still the weakest member of the team, but he's got a lot more bite to his bark now.
  • Burter: "Speed of light and strength of all!"
    Recoome: "The Ginyu Force shall make them fall!"
    Jeice: "Lord King Cold's army's strongest force!"
    Guldo: "We'll beat them all, secure the course!"
    Ginyu: "If trouble meets us as we pass..."
    All: "We'll shove our fists right up their ass!"

    "Ginyu Force, MOVE OUT!"

    Hoyt Volker 
Hoyt Volker, The Not-So-Affable God
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FarCry3_Hoyt_v01_5047.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His golden necklace and platinum watch
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Turned Vaas into what he is today, leader of a ruthless legion of mercenaries, A big fan of Wagnerian orchestra, quick to yell mid sentence, sex trafficker, Surprisingly good with a knife, people are more afraid of him then Vaas, extremely evil sociopath from Johannesburg
  • Domains: Money, Rage, Chaos, Guns, Leadership
  • Allies: Vaas Montenegro, Albedo Piazzolla, Monsoon, Bambi "Buck" Hughes, Gideon Graves, Nui Harime, M. Bison, Sundowner, Mistral, Diavolo, Vic Vega, The Joker, Dolores Umbridge, Ragyo Kiryuin, Angus Bumby
  • Enemies: Jason Brody, Satoko Houjou, Near, Raiden, Herr Doktor Tenma, Madoka Kaname, Homura Akemi, Sayaka Miki, Kenshiro, Isaac Clarke, the GUAG Chick Magnet Quartet (especially Hayate Ayasaki), Seth Rollins, Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Black Widow, Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose
  • A drug and human trafficking kingpin who seemed to be the human avatar of all the evil on the mysterious Rook Island, Hoyt Volker was the only person that Vaas Montenegro has ever given true loyalty to. Furthermore, he was also the only person the island's inhabitants and captives feared more than Vaas, as many would say he is 'Armageddon' in comparison to the mad pirate captain. Along with Vaas and hired gun Buck Hughes, who were all killed and had their evil stopped by a tripped-out Jason Brody, they each found themselves guided into the Pantheon through a special path of hell, born from Vaas' hallucinating mind.
  • He likes to present himself as a polite and calm man. He also will blow up a boat to show his anger towards his subordinates.
  • If "Ride of the Valkyries" is playing in his quarters, odds are that someone's going to blow up in not too long.
    • On that note, he prefers European songs. He thinks that American pieces are too "bombastic".
  • Has three simple rules for his allies to ensure that they have a good and happy relationship:
    Company Rule 1: Protect his product. If they want to make sure it works they can do so but be gentle.
    Company Rule 2: Kill any meddlers on sight. That includes Vaas's enemies.
    Company Rule 3: All profits go to him; Money is all that matters. Anything else is theirs.
    • If they follow these rules, Hoyt will stay happy. If they break these rules, Hoyt will throw them in a furnace.
  • Hoyt likes to play card games with several others. Those who do, however, are advised not to cheat. Or to be attempting a double-cross of some sort. If he finds out, he'll personally Mind Rape them.
    Hoyt: Whoever you are, your name slipped my mind. HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK I AM?!
  • Is irritated at the new meddlers trying to ruin his life's work, though he firmly believes that what he does is universal, and, while they have ruined one area of his operations, they can never truly stop him.
  • Everything that Vaas has done in the Pantheon is under his orders.
  • Has struck an alliance with Diavolo, though he's rather pissed about not being able to meet him.
  • Brody, along with Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Seth Rollins, a housemate who was already on thin ice with the Villainous gods, recently ruined a shipment of pirates and slaves he had planned to bring into the Pantheon under the status of Vaas' heralds to sell their services to members of both his henchmen's sub-houses to net a profit. For revenge, he led Vaas and Buck in kidnapping Rollins with the hopes of torturing and killing him to scare others meddlers from messing with his enterprises. But then Seth's friends came back with that Kamen Rider Ryugen as well as Rollins' Shield mates Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns to stop that plan from happening, and shortly thereafter Rollins was moved out into another wing of Ryugen's house so he can't easily get at him anymore. Needless to say, Volker is so pissed he's currently blowing up villages.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/36ca1ee71812e64b5e3edf2bb9938f0c.jpg
  • Intermediate God (Greater God if he gets a hold of Gungir and/or the Dragon Orb)
  • Symbol: His glasses superimposed over The Philosopher’s Stone
  • Theme Song:How Wicked Ruler, In Order To Acquire The Light In That Hand (when battling)
  • Alighnment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Evil Genius, Large Ham, Love Makes You Evil, Rage Against the Heavens, Stalker with a Crush
  • Domains: Evil Specs, Self-Made God, Necromancy
  • Followers: Road, Lucia, Harry MacDougall
  • Allies: Frollo, Gaston, Lucifer (maybe?)
  • Enemies: Lenneth and her Sister Valkyries, Freya (its personal), Edward Elric, some members of the House of Love
  • Rivals/Opposed: Harry Potter (for looking like him), Belldandy, Negi Springfield.
  • Reason for Ascension: Nearly Pulled off one of the grandest schemes in the history of storytelling in order to try and the attention of Lenneth, the Goddess he’s obsessed with, in order to ‘become one with her’. He kidnaps his old teacher’s husband and turns him into a monster, which he then provokes into killing said teacher. He then captures and murders many elves and other beings in order to take out their souls for experiments in soul transfers, make homunculus out of them. When his initial plan fails, he deliberately kills himself to turn into a spirit and allies himself with a powerful vampire to ensure that Odin has no chance of surviving Ragnarok by making it so that his newest agent, Hrist, fails her mission. He then reconstitutes his body, thereby surviving Ragnarok, goes back in time, and immerses himself with another Valkyrie who’s on Midgard at the time. During a critical battle, manages to steal her soul with no one the wiser. When he confronts Odin, he overpowers him, takes his soul and Gungir and the in order to create a new world and time line, all of which finally alerts the ascended Lenneth of his involvement. All According to Plan.
    • Needless to say, he’s NOT on a lot of people’s favorite list here in the Pantheon. However, he does have a decent-sized group of followers who consider him to be, if anything, a great villain.
  • The House of Magic strictly forbids him from entering their halls due to rarely anything good coming out of his experiments in soul transfusion. Edward Elric is especially watchful of him due to the subject of his experimentation.
    • However, since the events of the Great Upheaval, his undeniable talent in magic is under consideration for use. He scoffs at the idea of willingly working with them but if Lenneth (or Belldandy) should ask him, he may consider it.
  • Has been known to laugh maniacally when things start to go his way (such as in a chess match). Lenneth is keeping a much closer eye on him, but since he has arrived he has slightly mellowed out on his obsessive behavior but she is sure that he will eventually try something again because of them being in different Houses.
  • Now that everyone knows the tale of his deeds, his ego has inflated ridiculously to the point where one can’t walk by his temple without hearing him.
    "Bow to me – Worship me! Honor my name – Lezard Valeth!"
  • When Belldandy of the House of Love, came to speak with him, he actually welcomed the chance to 'discuss' his obsession with her, a Goddess of similar status as 'his beloved'.
    "Love? Who says what love is, or how it shall be measured? Who decides whether it is indeed 'wholesome and pure' or 'twisted and evil'? All I have done, I have done in her name, for her sake! I defied all of the petty gods of my world and what their works had wrought. I freed her from the shackles of that abominable fate as servants to an impotent god and system! And yet I find that I am hated and cast off! How many of these so-called 'heroes' who grace these halls can admit to doing even a fraction of what I have done in the name of love!? How many of them have destroyed and killed for the sake of their loved one!? How many of them have usurped power and status, just to grace a speck in their beloved's eye!? And they dare to judge me and my actions as mere folly!? I say to them that their words are the true heresy! ... Please forgive my harsh tone just now, my Lady. I imagine that you see myself as being dangerous, and I shall admit, I am. I am a fool in love with a goddess who spurns him. Were she to command anything, even my own death, I would obey gladly, if only I could remain by her side. Your lover, a mortal is he not? Woe be it to him if he should ever fall from your graces. You might find a despair, a madness, deep within him that you yourself did not foresee."
    • Belldandy was unnerved by him, but she says she sees a glimmer of hope that with time and patience, he can be guided onto a less destructive path. Lenneth cautioned her about becoming too close to Lezard, lest his considerable ‘affection’ start to drift in her direction as well.
  • Asura, yes THAT Asura, has a personal distaste for the mage, and not only because Lezard tried to become the kind of god that he vehemently opposes. There’s just something about his voice that sets off the Destructor…
  • He has caught the attention of Mephiles due to the complex nature of his schemes, in addition to the timeline-fudging aspects. Lezard has no plans to work with Mephiles, since he has a result for his plan, while Mephiles just craves destruction.

    Luxord 
Luxord, God of Fair Play Villainy (Number X, Gambler of Fate)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luxord_khiii_6.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His deck of cards, Fair Game
  • Theme Music: The 13th Struggle, Data Luxord.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Fights With Playing Cards, Evil Brit, Affably Evil, The Gambler, Duel Boss, Time-Limit Boss For Both Sides, Time Master (We Think), Pungeon Master, Noble Demon
  • Domains: Cards, Gambling, Bosses, Villains
  • Heralds: The Gambler Nobodies
  • Ally: Larxene.
  • Enemies: Captain Jack Sparrow, Will and Elizabeth Turner, Draco Malfoy, Tin Woodman, Edward Kenway.
  • Former Allies: Lea, Roxas, Xion
  • Rivals: Twisted Fate, Dorothy Albright, Cana Alberona, King Dice,
  • Abhorrent Admirer: The Queen of Hearts
  • No one is certain how Luxord appeared in the Pantheon one day. Some speculate it has to do with Xehanort, but it is hard to really say for sure. His opinion? He doesn't really mind his resurrection, as he considers it as him getting another shot at the game of life.
  • Luxord really considers life being like a game, more specifically like a game of chance. He doesn't care about who wins or loses, as long as he can continue playing it. Even when he is at his job, he can't but play with his opponents. And even in battle, he likes to apply rules for both him and his foes. Like applying a time limit to both sides of the field.
  • Luxord's fighting style consists of him wielding a deck of cards. He can manipulate them telekinetically to attack foes from range, enlarge them to make them act as barriers or shields and hide amongst them with some trap cards that can turn his foes into either dice or a giant card. Oddly enough, even though he has time powers, he rarely uses them, so what he can do with them is unknown.
    • Due to his preference of weapons, he has gained some competition from Twisted Fate and Dorothy Albright. He does like the competition, but he jokes that Dorothy is a bit too young to play around with cards. Cana is another interesting card-user that he finds himself dueling with on occasion.
  • He is slightly frightened by the idea that the Queen of Hearts might have feelings for him, especially since he doesn't want to return back to Wonderland after his previous visit.
  • He has gotten into what people tend to call "children's card games". He just says that there is something interesting about it. He doesn't really know what kind of deck to play with, though. He would run a gambling-themed one, but someone else is running that kind of deck and he doesn't really like to compete. Luck might not be on his side.
  • He doesn't really see eye-to-eye with the D'Arby Brothers. REALLY doesn't like how they try to cheat to get their way on things, but he does at least give some respect to Daniel for being smooth about it. Telence, however? He would prefer to turn him into a card.
  • He appreciates working with Larxene again as he hopes that she decides to take part in yet another one of his games while she finds it all pretty boring.
  • He doesn't like if you were to "cut his deck". He doesn't mind if you cut few of his cards, but if you were to attack his entire deck, then he'll get mad at you.
  • Luxord is one of the more morally upstanding members of Organization XIII, treating his opponents with respect and dignity, wanting everything to be fair, and complementing their victories. By the end of the 2nd Great War, he genuinely considers Sora and Roxas as friends, even giving the former "a wild card" that may help him in a future endeavor. As a result, the two are on considerably better terms with him than with the rest of the Organization.
    • There's also the fact he seems to be serving as Yozora's personal driver after Sora's potential loss to him.
  • "The fun is in not knowing, isn't it? What is the point of betting on something when you already know the outcome?"

    M. Bison 
Master Bison, God of Indifference in Villainy (Lord Bison, Vega-sama, Dictator, Ruler of Darkness, Never-Ending Nightmare, Emperor of Evil)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mbison_sfv.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God, and possibly Overdeity, as Final Bison)
  • Symbols: The Shadaloo Logo (a Winged Skull with a Lightning Bolt Insignia on its forehead)
  • Theme Music: M. Bison Stage (CPS1 base)
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Flung Clothing, Game-Breaker Psychic Powers, SNK Boss, Equal-Opportunity Evil Employer, Magnificent Bastard, Large Ham, Memetic Mutation, Having Been There and Done That, His V-Trigger: Psycho Power, Complete Monster
  • Domains: Evil, Retribution, Tyranny, Wrath.
  • Allies
  • Rivals: Urien, Gill, Kolin, Ermac
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: Kurapika, X, Zero
  • The day Bison flew into the Heavens was immediately declared a national holiday in 17 different countries. But for Him, it was...Tuesday.
  • Loves to tease The Nostalgia Critic whenever the Critic mentions that someone else is attempting to Take Over the World. "Of course!", none can attempt it with as much style and flair as Bison. Although Bison does respect the Critic's choice of clothing during his takeover of Molossia.
  • Is considered by the Pantheon as Shao Kahn's Lawful Evil counterpart.
  • Believes evil is delicious, and will approve something that he likes twice.
  • Is in an epic Yes/No standoff with Chuggaconroy. So far, it hasn't ended yet, although ProtonJon and NintendoCapriSun are trying to pull Chuggaa away before he loses his voice.
  • Whenever shouts the phrase You Killed My Father, if said father was REALLY killed by him (he's not the killer of every father, he admits), his reply is this:
    Bison: Yes, Yes. I killed your father. What is it with you (insert species here) anyway? I killed my father too, and you don't see me whining about it.
  • Recently was brought to a virtual world where he competed in an epic clash against Shao Kahn. It ended up with Shao Khan absorbing his soul (albeit only a piece of it, but Kahn managed to keep that piece after exiting, which weakened Bison's body significantly). Thankfully, Bison has had that experience before against Akuma, thus before the epic clash, he stored some 'backup bodies and consciousness' and had his followers transfer him into one, allowing him to retain his spot in the Pantheon and plotting revenge in case Shao Kahn makes it to the Pantheon proper.
    • However, it has been revealed in an alternate universe he and Shao Kahn teamed up after the battle and worked together to defeat their mortal enemies and eventually conquer the world and the Pantheon. Bison admits it would have been an interesting way for it to end.
    • With Kahn's accession to the Pantheon, Bison managed to steal back his soul from him with a surprise attack. Despite this, the two get along surprisingly well. Some still believe they intend to work together to conquer the Pantheon.
  • Has once brainwashed Ken Masters into a killing machine.; something he originally planned for Ryu. Whether he is still planning for this is unknown, although he has also done this to Ryu once as well. Also, Cammy White... let's just say he does this a lot.
  • He has so many opposers that refuses to acknowledge his Godhood, but he always tell them to keep to their own Gods, in fact it may be a good time to pray for them. For he beheld Satan as the latter FELL FROM HEAVEN!! LIKE LIIIIIIGHTNIIIIIIINNNGGG!!!
  • Recently discarded his once follower Daniel Bryan, who pulled a Heel–Face Turn... until Daniel Bryan ascended to the House of Quirks. They are currently going through an epic Big "YES!" showdown.
  • Finds himself weirded out by one Gomez Addams due to the fact that they have the same actor in the late Raúl Juliá.
  • Ever since the Death Battle, Bison has hated Boomstick for comparing him to Captain Planet, complete with song.
  • He used to reign as the God of Terror, until the appearance of both Thaal Sinestro and later Diablo. Bison made a mistake that he did not groom his terror well enough, causing the two to eventually band and destroy his old house of Terror. Thankfully for Bison, he has already commissioned this house beforehand and moved here... on Tuesday. Now he can resume his ambition to, you guessed it, Take Over the World.
    OF COURSE!!!
  • As a proud Card-Carrying Villain, Bison gets along very well with Master Xehanort and Eobard Thawne, especially since all their talents can help each other and none of their ambitions clash with one another. However, the same can't be said for Bison and Sigma; despite their many similarities, what Bison intends to achieve for himself (the ultimate power, ruling the world, etc.), Sigma wants to achieve for himself and his fellow Reploids, and no proper dictator has the time for that. Still, the Maverick Hunters X and Zero have been tipped off by the resurrected Nash and are absolutely NOT taking any chances that these two might still decide at some point to band together.
  • Because F.A.N.G, his replacement for Sagat in Shadaloo's Four Heavenly Kings quartet, hadn't been ascended to the Pantheon yet at the time, Bison sought out a temporary replacement and happened upon Coco, a similarly-trained Poisonous Person who also happened to be part of a Four Heavenly Kings. Coco, being a good person who doesn't want to be used for evil, rejected Bison out of hand. Bison, however, insists he will have Coco work for Shadaloo or die. Naturally, the two Four Kings groups are entirely at odds. Later, Bison succeeded in facilitating F.A.N.G's ascension, which only exacerbated that feud as well as the opposition of Rashid and Cammy.
  • "Bow down before my Psycho Power!"

    Seryu Ubiquitous 
Seryu Ubiquitous, Goddess of Villainous Self-Justification (Justice Girl/-Chan/Bitch)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seryu.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Teigu, Hekatonkheires/Koro
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil with some shades of Lawful Neutral, though she thinks of herself as Lawful Good (goes straight into Chaotic Evil when fighting)
  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, truly believing that what she's doing is good and using that belief to justify murder, Ax-Crazy, sufferers of Black-and-White Insanity, owners of tons and tons of weapons, Cyborgs, reminders that Anyone Can Die, Obliviously Evil, a love of killing evildoers
  • Domains: Revenge, Justice, Insanity
  • Superiors: Prime Minister Honest, Father and Dante (Fullmetal Alchemist)
  • Allies
  • Rivals: Nui Harime, Lucy
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Steven Armstrong (on her end)
  • Enemies: Night Raid (Sheele, Mine, and Chelsea in particular), Yuno Gasai, Tsubaki Yayoi, Velvet Crowe, the good members of the House of Justice (especially Raiden)
  • Opposes: The Lantern Corps, Cornelia li Britannia
  • Pitied by: Shinn Asuka
  • Ascended after her death at the hands of Mine. Esdeath was happy to see her in the Pantheon, and Seryu swore loyalty to her leader once more.
  • The members of Night Raid weren't happy that another member of the Jaegers had ascended. Sheele got nervous at seeing her killer, and Mine was furious for the same reason. Chelsea was disgusted to hear that Seryu fed Koro her remains. Seryu hasn't given up on trying to kill them, and has made her intent more than clear.
  • Upon ascension, Seryu tried her best to get into the House of Justice, but the Protectors made sure that didn't happen. She's absolutely livid that she ended up in the House of Villains. She makes attempts to tear down the place on a regular basis.
    • She also wants to destroy the Houses of Ambiguity and Crime, as she believes that All Crimes Are Equal, and so good people who do bad things and vice versa should suffer.
    • What made her snap, however, was finding out that Raiden, another Cyborg, had somehow made it in the House of Justice. She tried to kick him out by claiming that he did "too much murderous crap" to be considered a protector of justice, but it was then pointed out to her that she did the same thing, except worse. The entire house ended up in shambles after that.
  • As a fellow robotic Knight Templar, Copy X sympathizes with Seryu. She sees him as an ideal ruler, and he sees her as a hero of justice whose life was taken too early.
  • Often goes into the House of Technology to get repairs, upgrades, and weapons.
  • Was surprised to find another person who got their arms cut off by oversized scissors in the form of Nui Harime. After discovering her (similarly) psychopathic nature, Seryu tried to do the obvious to Nui, but the latter survived due to her Healing Factor. Because Seryu gets a kick out of brutally torturing villains, she decided to form a rivalry with Nui, and the two spar from time to time.
    • She was also surprised to hear that someone sounded like her. Seryu is itching to see if Lucy is on her level. Everyone else wants to see who's more insane and destructive.
  • Despite her psychopathic nature, Seryu has a soft spot for children, and can often be seen playing soccer with them.
  • She once considered applying for the GUAG once, but got increasingly disgusted by their hesitation to give evildoers "what they deserve". She found the GUAL much more in line with her ideals.
    • Soon afterward, she heard of Esdeath's alliance with Senator Armstrong. While Seryu is disapproving of his desire to make a chaotic hell, she puts up with him for the sake of her loyalty to Esdeath. Armstrong in turn sees Seryu in a more positive light; in his eyes, she's fighting for her own beliefs in the most violent way possible, and he can appreciate that.
  • Is pitied by Shinn Asuka, who can't help but feel sorry for her twisted attitude. He's tried to tell her of his own experiences in an attempt to reform her, but they've accomplished nothing.
  • As a result of hearing about their powers, Seryu gets tense around the Lantern Corps, seeing how she was done in by Mine's emotion-powered Teigu.
  • On Esdeath's request, she and Noob Saibot followed her glorious leader not only back into the service of Prime Minister Honest upon his ascension to the Pantheon, but also into a new army, the High Command assembled by Führer King Bradley under the service of the Homunculus Father. While Father and the Homunculi honestly skeeve her out, she gets along well with the other recruits, specifically the Gold-Toothed Doctor who reminds her of Dr. Stylish, and especially Esdeath's new friend and other proxy recruit Coyote Starrk. She's considering whether the other Jaegers would want to join this new unit.

  • Out of nowhere during a casual match in the Summoner's Rift, all of the sudden, a team was declared a victor due to mass disappearance of the other team, which apparently also had the mute songstress Sona as their Support. At first disregarded as a mere disconnection, the winners moved on, but the defeated team never came back, making them have suspicions. At first they argued that the Defenders of the Ancients sabotaged it, only for them to deny... but one of them, Anti-Mage, decided that maybe foul sorcery was afoul around it and he joined the winner team to help investigate.
    • Until they stumbled across a keep, bloodied with various torture victims... and found Sona and her teammates, while safe, all of them Bound and Gagged, clad in BDSM gears and having experienced torture, and still the temple was empty without any traces of owner, maybe they had a clean escape. There is only one spawn of sorcery that came to Anti-Mage's mind about this... the Queen of Pain, Akasha, has made it to the Pantheon. Whoever contracted her was unknown, but surely they would have known the exploits of her sneaky, dark, sudden ganks and sorcery, and her enthusiasm in bondage and pain coupled with her succubus form, allowing her to ascend
  • Akasha is known to have a relationship with the Wraith King Ostarion. Whether she reciprocates were unknown, however, she seems amused at him, sometimes asking him for a 'roleplay'
  • Unlike most succubuses, Akasha does not relish on the sex pleasure completely. Yes, she does get off it, but it's more of the pain that comes with the death that she relished upon. They don't call her 'Queen of Pain' for nothing. And with her intelligence, boy does she get creative with them. She gets along well with the Aensland sisters regardless, and sometimes Akasha advises Morrigan to 'do it' with Lilith.
  • Earned the ires of Ivy Valentine and Chie Satonaka quickly, the former was because Akasha was taking the bondage theme just like her and takes it Up to Eleven without restraints, while the latter gets reminded of her 'Dominatrix Banana Head' Shadow. She also got one from Wonder Woman, as not only Akasha enjoys pain of others, her bondage enthusiasm just reminds Wondie of her old days when she often got into such bondage positions, and she's unnerved with it.
  • Has one of the biggest, most hurting screams in the Pantheon, rivalling the likes of Black Bolt and Black Canary. Needless to say, if she is ever to hold a concert, that's another quick way to death.
    • It's also one of the reason she became so venomously hostile to Sona, the reason why she pulled the shenanigans above in putting her in BDSM, as Akasha was infuriated how a mute person like her attracted so much with music compared to hers. Granted, it was because Sona could master a more soothing healing melody, but where's the fun and pain in that!?
    • She also seems to have a mutual dislike from Runeterra's soul-stealing being Ahri, as Akasha pretty much stood for everything Ahri tried to avoid, being a heartless soul devouring monster. Akasha herself thinks that Ahri is a wuss that does not understand the true pleasure that is pain, especially from the soul-sucking power that they both have. And totally less sexy too.
  • It was known that there was a time when Akasha paid a visit to the Forests of Caldavar. A certain Wretched Hag learned a lot from her, but Akasha refused to have her follow into the Pantheon, not even a High Priest or Follower, as the Hag is not into bondage and not even attractive. Though she at least tells the Hag to spread terror in the Forests from what she learned, that's the least she can do.
    • Also for those wondering, yes, she messed up with that forest's Succubus that badly that she instead chose to learn from Atropos/Bane of all people.
  • Akasha once visited the torture room of Relius Clover and was fascinated with his collection of torture experiment devices. On meeting the man himself, they agreed to share knowledge... as long as Akasha gets into the devices herself (she likes it no problem), and in the same time, they SWITCH PLACES, and no 'acting casual' shenanigans for Relius.
  • While it might not be her native house, Akasha really likes the Lust house or the Tainted Love house, as a lot of them are pretty full of lustful beings she can get off with pain and torture.
  • There were many in the Pantheon that have started to oppose her. Lukia believes she is sponsoring many of the monsters that he constantly fights against, while Xander and his followers believe all too many of them have fell victim to her traps (Xander himself was found chained and gagged spear-eagled on a cross by Buffy and Willow, with him blaming the Queen of Pain for kidnapping him.)
  • Azmodan takes interest in her as in a way, she reminded him of his Maiden of Lust Cyadea. Except looking like a bat-woman than a spider woman. Along with that, her ganking capabilities took the interest of Diablo himself. Akasha finds the attention of these Burning Hells leaders... alluring.
  • She may have found the perfect partner in crime in I-No. Not only does she enjoy inflicting pain on others as much as she does, but she all but volunteers to be subjected to her torturing sessions. Neither would say whether they are an item now, but they haven't denied that either.
  • It was brought to her attention that the GUAG successfully found a Good Counterpart of BDSM for their followers. Melkor tasked the Queen of Pain to enter the temple for intel. The deities may not be that powerful, but she summised that they are a legitimate threat to her business. She hopes to find ways to cause them to fall out of favor with the Pantheon.
  • Time for some roleplay.

    Chakal 
Chakal, God of Never Taking Any Nonsense (The Bandit King)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chakal_28129_3.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The skull surrounded around the bombs
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Misanthrope Supreme, Artificial Limbs, Bad Boss, Badass Mustache, Saved and adopted a young girl when he used to have a shed humanity on him, Evil Counterpart to Xibalba, Large and in Charge, Shadow Archetype to Joaquin, Was sent to the Land of the Cursed, Killed himself using his bombs to kill the entire San Angel
  • Domains: Hatred, Obsession, Bandits, Terrorists
  • Herald: Chato, Chela and the rest of his bandits
  • "Allies": Shinobu Sensui, Lysandere, Odio
  • Enemies: Manolo Sanchez, Maria Posada, and Joaquin Mondragon, La Muerte and Xibalba, Hector, Speedy Gonzalez, Yusuke Urameshi and his allies, Vash the Stampede, Lucky Luke, Handsome Jack, Hob Gadling, Scathach, Chiron
  • Opposed by: Zamasu
  • Annoyed at: Kefka Palazzo, Luca Blight
  • Disappoints: Philemon
  • Chakal is the king of the bandits who terrorized Mexico in the hopes of finding the Medal of Everlasting Life. Hearing that San Angel's hero has it, he terrorized the town with his bandits, killing Manolo and his father in the process. Thanks to the intervention of La Muerte, Xibalba, and the Candlemaker, Manolo is brought back from the dead, the entire Sanchez family rose from the dead, and launched their attach against him. Seeing no other choice, he strapped a bomb around himself, planning to take the entire town along with him upon their death, which eventually backfires as he was hit by a bell (with Manolo who has the Medal of Everlasting which caused him to survived) before the bomb exploded, killing him in the process, causing him to stay in the Land of the Cursed.
  • Having been sent to the Land of Cursed, his soul was transported to the Pantheon because the Court of Gods decided to ascend him because of his attitude and upon learning where he is, he proceeded to kill all the humans on his sight. However, this backfired when all the people he killed were revived in the House of Life and Death. Humiliated by his plans to kill humanity, he went back to his temple and decided to search for the Medal of Everlasting Life again.
  • Hearing about his ascension, Manolo and his group of friends are exasperated about it. He, Joaquin, and Maria proceeded to kick his ass in the Pantheon uncaught with Xibalba and La Muerte looking at the fight with amusement. Chakal is angered at his defeat and told his minions to train to bite back his enemies.
  • Knowing that he has no way of defeating the more powerful humans in the Pantheon, Chakal knew that the only way for him to defeat them is to ally himself with new people, but is willing to betray them if he feels like it. He allies himself with fellow misanthropes such as Lysandere, Shinobu Sensui, and Odio and considering how the former is much more advanced in technology and the latter two with power, he’s willing to maintain his alliance with them unless their usefulness in their abilities have outlived. He considers Kefka and Luca to be too insane that he's annoyed by them and couldn't bring himself to offer an alliance and Zamasu being Zamasu considers him to be an unworthy rival and him being huamn doesn't help matters.
  • Hearing about Chakal from his new friends, Hector doesn't love him for his misanthropy and knew that his existence could disrupt the balance between life and death. The musician knew he has no skill to defeat the bandit, but he’s willing to help his friends to make sure he doesn’t do anything bad.
  • Being a fellow Mexican, Speedy Gonzalez hates him for terrorizing his fellow country. His newfound hatred for the Mexican caused him to become allies with Manolo, Joaquin, and Maria and help them whenever they have their battles with the terrorist. Chakal hates Speedy for his snarky attitude and being unable to keep up with the mouse’s speed.
  • Being a fellow misanthrope, Yusuke Urameshi and his allies hate him since he shares the same hatred as one of their enemies. While they knew he’s not as big as a threat as Shinobu Sensui, his desire to obtain the Medal of Everlasting Life made him a big threat in their eyes since he will become a huge pain of an enemy with it and swore themselves to defeat him for the greater good of humanity.
  • Being a good-hearted outlaw, Lucky Luke doesn’t like Chakal and being a misanthrope makes him a big target in his book. Lucky Luke has took advantage of Chakal’s no-nonsense attitude and with his wits and skills in drawing bullets, manages to beat him in their battles. Chakal had promised himself to get revenge on him.
  • Vash the Stampede also hates him for the same reasons as Lucky Luke and being a man who advocates for peace sees Chakal as a huge threat considering the Bandit King is a terrorist. He has teamed up with his fellow rival, Lucky Luke to defeat their newfound enemy. Chakal has hated the two outlaws even more for it and trained himself harshly to defeat his newfound enemies.
  • Having hated bandits due to believing they plagued Pandora and having an Ax-Crazy attitude, Handsome Jack hates Chakal and considers him to be in his toplist for being a Bandit King and proceeds to rant about bandits. Chakal meanwhile sees Handsome Jack as a weak man that couldn’t easily beat him as he is embarrassed at his attitude and boastfulness.
  • His desire to steal the Medal of Everlasting Life caught the attention of fellow immortals or those who want to obtain immortality. Hob Gadling considers him to be a bad example of immortals and knows that him obtaining immortality could ensure the extinction of humanity. Chakal meanwhile is jealous that there are people that could become immortals without the Medal of Everlasting Life.
  • The two Servants, Chiron and Scathach also hate him for similar reasons. As much as Scathach hates her immortality, she will oppose those that seek immortality for bad reasons and the immortals who are villains to humanity. Chakal whereas laughed at Chiron losing his humanity and how he never obtained his wish in the Holy Grail and finds Scathach’s desire to die pathetic.
  • Apparently, he adopted a little girl named Chela when he used to have little humanity in him and dearly loves her, but considering the following years afterwards, he seems to have no humanity left and seems to only care about his daughter and minions. This disappointed Philemon who hopes that Chakal could be redeemed if that’s the case believing that adopting a daughter could change his mind about humanity.
I'm taking this whole town with me!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TropeLecter_5073.jpg
Lecter in the Hannibal series 
  • Demigod, with some moments of Lesser
  • Symbol: The Duomo, seen from the Belvedere
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Cannibalism, Scheming, Magnificence, Being Delightfully Nuts, Hannibal Lectures, Sinister Intellectuals
  • Domains: Trickery, Planning, Manipulation, Evil, Intelligence, Hunger
  • Allies: Johan Liebert, Vaas Montenegro, Hexxus, Abed Dessler
  • Enemies: Every good Deity in the House of Justice, the House of Food, except for Gluttony, the Greedy, Gramma Stuffum and Benica Conchita; Marion Crane, Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott, Odin, Kenzo Tenma, Batman, James Bond, Jigsaw
  • Opposed by: Dexter Morgan
  • Rival: Jack the Ripper, John Doe, Dracula,
  • Complicated Relationship with: Will Graham and Clarice Starling
  • Fears: Rem, The Wendigo
  • Engaged in an epic battle of slightly off-rocker wits with Johan. Somehow this ended with a trip to a fancy restaurant for some martinis, wherein they slaughtered every last person for lulz and giggles.
  • One person Lecter particularly gets along with is Dessler for his appreciation for fine wine and classiness. Of course, the two of them don't discuss each other's business whenever they visit and prefer to focus on the drinking.
  • His dethroning of Painis Cupcake caused pantheon access to Painis Cupcake videos to disappear, and thus removing the God of All Overlord's favorite source of lulz. As a result, Mr. Lecter is now on top of Overlord Zenon's kill list. She plans on making him the star of her next "dinner for one".
  • When Will and Clarice, the two of them reluctantly paid his place a visit as a gesture of thank you for helping with their case (although Will is much more reluctant to do so than Clarice and both of them brought weapons and atleast several other bodyguards).
    • However, Clarice was disgusted when found out that her novel counterpart made a Face–Heel Turn and became Hannibal's lover and on the run with him. This caused her to avoid the House of Mentalism as much as possible in fear of the place lapsed her into her novel counterpart. Will's relationship with Hannibal also deteriorated when find out from the House of Love that one version of Hannibal is in love with him, which isn't a good combination with the fact that Hannibal framed him for murder and sent him to an asylum.
    • In his part, Hannibal respects them enough that he wouldn't kill them when stepped into his place and happily assist them to catch any serial killer should they once again need his expertise. Will and Clarice are also the only one he allows to calls out his mispronunciation of faba beans.
  • Because of his infamous culinary "habit", the majority of the House of Food form a Teeth-Clenched Teamwork to keep him out. This pisses Lecter off and he sometimes bands with those who condone his actions themselves to mess with the House's food source. He doesn't use human meat, of course. That is just so wasteful.
  • Formed an intense rivalry with Jack the Ripper for "taking" his throne as the god of Serial Killer to the point of engaged in a rap battle. Because of this rivalry, Lecter is a frequent consultant in Will & Clarice's investigation of him.
  • Attracted attention from Dracula for his reputation of eating other humans. Their meeting turned hostile when Dracula is surprise that Lecter looks like his sworn enemy Van Helsing.
  • Don't EVER mistakes Odin for him unless you want a Gungrir aiming straight at you. The last time some confuse mortal made that mistake with his MCU counterpart, Thor has to intervene to save their ass.
  • The victims of serial killers / Final Girl like Marion, Laurie and Sidney in the Pantheon have a big hatred for him, not only for his crime but also for his disgusting habit of eating his victim. Hannibal is very aware of this and one day delivered a "talk" with all three of them over dinner about how all of their killers are all just petty, low life, sorry excuse of a human and doesn't even deserve to be compared to him.
  • Because of his similarity and alliance with Johan, Dr. Tenma is completely disgusted by Lecter's very presence. The two can sometimes be seen engages in intense mental battle whenever they came across each other.
  • Batman hates Lecter to the bone due to the horrific crimes Hannibal committed and one of Batman's enemy's Calendar is similar to Lecter.
  • Dexter Morgan absolutely despises him due to his crime as a serial killer and his betrayal that leading up to Dexter's ascension. Lecter just laughs him off and delivers his signature speech about how Dexter is not so different from a serial killer and the fact that at least neither he or Jack became a lumberjack.
  • Already low on James Bond's list for being a manipulative criminal, the fact an alternate version of Hannibal looks like Le Chiffre makes 007 downright despise him. (speaking of which, everything is being done to prevent Jyn Erso from thinking Hannibal is her father)
  • Upon hearing of his similarities to Light, he was approached by Rem, who claimed to be a Shinigami (a god of Death), and requested for him to spare Misa's life should he ever came across her. He attempted to pull his similar spiel on Rem, citing how she was still siding with a serial killer, shrugging off her powers, all while still insisting he will kill and eat her. He probably would've gotten away with it if that last part wasn't spoken. Upon being brought back to life after being recovered from the Wendigo's digestive system, he reluctantly agreed to spare Misa, and began to fear Rem as a result of this. He also grew of fear of the Wendigo, being disgusted by how messy of eaters of flesh they are.
