Pantheon / Villains

Go To


Herein is the vile House of Villainy, rebuilt after eons past. The goals of these deities are destruction and the domination of all existence, seeking to impose their own order upon the multiverse. Although, it should be noted that not all the occupants of this House are totally evil. This house was founded when several of the heroes such as Superman and Spider-Man decided they wanted to resplit the House of Heroism and Villainy after the endless war had worn them all down for too long. While many of the Elder Gods were uneasy at the thought of another Hero/Villain house split after the first experiment, the case eventually went all the way to the Court of The Gods, where a very tired and irritated Johnson ordered the house split up because "All that noise makes sleeping very difficult for the rest of us! I tolerate the House of Beast out of necessity, but split the others up for now. Let them scheme in their own houses." Jean-Luc Picard facepalmed at this utterly arbitrary decision, but as Jack McCoy was leading the case, tired of having the lawless look over his notes, the decision passed with surprisingly little argument. The only dissenter was Harvey Dent, but after flipping a coin, he ultimately decided for it too, though it does create the awkward situation of him needed to drag himself between houses depending on his coin flip on who he was going to visit on off time.


Melkor often visits this house from the Main House to plan with his horde on how they might take down the other houses before long. His temple which is mostly empty instead holds the central portal to the headquarters of the Grand United Alliance of Evil, which many villains use. Most of the resident villains admit that though keeping each other's company is difficult, this is something they'll need to deal with if they're ever going to crush those pathetic heroes under their boots.

Ever since the ascension of Crow, there has been a new wing to the house called the "Villain's Museum" for the purpose of celebrating all the victories that fellow villains achieved.

The only thing they have in common with the House of Heroism is their shared opposition of The Anti-Monitor.

  • A uncontrollable force of destruction, Majin Buu is near-unstoppable and thus was summoned by the evil wizard Bibidi to help him in his quest to dominate the universe. In this quest, Buu eliminated all but one of its guardian Supreme Kais and it seemed that all hope was lost. However, the Top God of Universe 7, the Grand Supreme Kai willingly let himself get absorbed by Buu to temper his evil impulses, turning him into Fat Buu, a weaker, goofier form. Majin Buu's original form would resurface after a long chain of events that started with the unsealing of Fat Buu by Babidi (Bibidi's son) and destroy the Earth immediately after, seeking more worlds to destroy and strong opponents to fight. It took the combined effort of the Dragon Team and all Earthlings for Goku to produce a Super Spirit Bomb that finally finished off the monster for good.
    • Alas, it was not to be. Melkor, who had recently established his Four Horseman sought a representative for Death, and a majority of death entities were either impartial, unwilling or flocking to Nekron (at that point the GUAD did not exist yet). Then he witnessed Majin Buu's swath of destruction and immediately extracted him from his point of death to assume the illustrious position as the God of Omnicidal Mania. Unlike some others, Majin Buu does not care if he is destroyed in his omnicidal campaign and Melkor saw him as the perfect fit, thus bringing him in as his personal muscle.
  • To be clear, the Buu that has ascended to the Pantheon under this title is Kid Buu, his original and purest form. He has the special ability of absorbing other beings into his own body thus gaining their powers and abilities. Thus, Buu has existed in various different forms in accordance with his absorptions. He shares a special relationship with Good Buu as a result: both can't stand each other and see themselves as the true Buu. By having Fat Buu in his being, Kid Buu becomes the incredibly intelligent and slightly less psychotic Super Buu. Melkor sees this more intelligent form of Majin Buu as an incredibly useful ally and is trying to re-capture Fat Buu for this purpose, but is developing a way of fusing/de-fusing them at will so Super Buu doesn't try to betray/absorb him. He has been slowly giving up, given that he has enough smarties in his inner circle.
    • Evil Buu represents the evil in Good Buu's body and is part of Kid Buu in the Pantheon: their current form holding both the ideals of evil and destruction. An incredibly powerful force could theoretically force them apart but no one's certainly trying that. And because the Pantheon's Kid Buu was extracted from the moment of his death, he has no trace of his good re-incarnation Uub in his being. On the contrary, Buu seeks to find Uub and destroy his inferior for being good in general. Given the continuity troubles, this seems unlikely.
  • Seeks to absorb Sauron once the latter gets The One Ring in order to transform into something powerful enough to take on Haruhi Suzumiya and destroy reality. To aid in this endeavor, he also has his eyes on Light Yagami's tactical prowess, yet to Buu's dismay, Light has already anticipated Buu's attempt on his body and prepared accordingly (and to Light's dismay, Buu is way too crazy to be stopped by one of his plans, so they are kind of stuck in a stalemate).
  • He enjoys destroying everything in sight with Broly. Though he knows that they will try and kill each other, he relishes the fight when it comes.
  • It should be noted that there are no true followers of the God of Omnicidal Mania. They're all plotting the destruction of everything else, so backstabbing will inevitably occur. The exception is when Omnicidal Maniacs decide to pair up in order to annihilate everything.
    • The only reason the Anti-Monitor isn't also the God of Omnicidal Mania is that he couldn't care less for the trope. As he put it: "I do not care what you classify my actions as. It will not change your fate."
  • Flynn has expressed interest in battling the creature as a test of his strength, and because he has a personal loathing for Omnicidal creatures like Buu. He is hoping to use Ancient of Days and Raphael as the centerpieces of his strategy: the Brand from Stigmatic Gleam and Stigmata Strike will (hopefully) slow or even stop Buu's regeneration abilities, allowing him or any teammates to overwhelm the creature's defenses and destroy every last atom.
  • Not even his absurd healing factor stopped Kirby of all people from killing him in a Death Battle. Getting hurled into the sun by his own Planet Burst did the trick that time. Naturally, he's a bit wearier around the pink puffball now.
  • With his penchant for wanton destruction and unbridled and bottomless sadism, Buu's depravity is unmatched in the Pantheon; aside from Made of Evil deities like Nyarlathotep and Melkor. The only other deity can compete with him in that department is Griffith. In other words, he's the most depraved deity who isn't Made of Evil, next to Griffith.
  • It has been revealed that, even though Shin assumed that Bibidi made him, the truth is that the one called "Buu" was not actually created by Bibidi, but has existed since time immemorial. He cycled between rampages and long hibernation. During numerous iterations of this cycle, he absorbed the evil elements of mankind, becoming steadily more violent. The evil wizard Bibidi merely knew the means of calling Buu from out of his long slumber. So it can be strongly suggested that Majin Buu can not cease to exist. For as long as the concept of evil continues to exist in mankind or the universe, Majin Buu can continue to grow stronger or more violent. And even if he is somehow killed, he will just be reborn, most likely in the same form. So, as long as there is evil, Majin Buu will exist.
    • This is exactly the reason why Hakumen has placed Majin Buu highest on his shit list outside of Terumi: The very fact that he will come back even after being killed. So far he plans to use a similar method that got Terumi killed: summoning Excalibur to distract Buu with his usual antics (exploiting Buu's already excessively childish personality) and by giving him a large bag of candy from Willy Wonka (exploiting Buu's wanting for candy) so that he can charge his Time Killer technique and use it on Buu to erase him entirely from existence.
  • His omnicidal threat makes him an enemy to the Four Heavenly Kings of the Gourmet Planet because they want there to be people around to enjoy food.
  • "Me Buu, kill you!"
