Pantheon / Weaponized Objects

Go To

This is arguably the most unorthodox subhouse in the House of Weapons. Not only does it house deities that can use ordinary objects as weapons, but just about everything here (including the floorboards) can be used as a weapon. That said, there is a limit on how many times a body can be used as a weapon per week. After all, someone's going to get tired of being used as an object eventually.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edge_002_e2k9.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A MPAA R-rating logo inside a Star.
  • Theme Song: "Metalingus" preceded with the words "You think you know me". Alternatively "You Think You Know Me".
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, though could be seen as Chaotic Good or Chaotic Evil depending on the time
  • Portfolio: Professional Wrestling, Gimmick Matches, Side Changers, Cheating, Kicking Them While They Are Down, Waiting for the Right Moment to Strike, Bad Boys Who Get All The Girls, actually a cool guy when not wrestling.

  • Born to a single mother who had to work two jobs in order to get by, Adam Copeland discovered his love of professional wrestling as a child. Notably, he and his best friend Christian Cage were in attendance at the Toronto SkyDome for WrestleMania VI, where Toronto Hulk Hogan lost the WWF Championship to The Ultimate Warrior. He didn't necessarily have it easy, though. Adam never met his father, had to put his wrestling ambitions on hold to help pay the bills despite all the rough training he and Christian went through to even become wrestlers, and was turned down by WCW after a couple of mediocre jobber matches. Even the beginning of his relationship with the World Wrestling Federation and its feeder territories was a mixed bag at first; while they paid off his outstanding college debt which had totaled around $40,000, he worked for them without an official contract for over a year. And then, after he finally got that contract, by the time he was told he would soon be making his debut on Monday Night Raw... Christian, the man with whom he'd been as close as brothers since they were kids, went missing.
    • Having received a tip that Christian was already in New York and that a "gothic individual" might be related to his disappearance, Adam went there and wandered the streets for weeks looking for answers. He boarded buses and trains, sat around at stations, beat up a number of pedestrians, even held a romantic dalliance or two, all while keeping himself fit and fresh on the WWF's dime, but could never get anywhere with his search. By the time his debut approached, he'd completely reached the very border of his sanity. Adam Copeland had become Edge.
  • Within the WWF, Edge finally disovered this "gothic individual" in the form of the Vampire Warrior known as Gangrel. After months of feuding with Gangrel, Christian finally appeared, distracting Edge during an important match, though he was oddly mute at the time and would quickly reveal his allegiance to Gangrel. Furthermore, Gangrel implied there was some sort of history between him and Edge in the past which had led to the events taking place at the Federation. Amazingly enough, Edge would later "come home" and join Gangrel and Christian, forming the epic pseudo-vampire trio known as The Brood, who even had a term with The Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness before rejecting The Deadman's ways when he tried to have them punish Christian.
    • Ultimately, though, Gangrel betrayed Edge and Christian and sided with their enemies, The Hardy Boyz, before those two cast him aside as well and he stopped bothering anyone involved. Though mutual respect had been established with the Hardyz, that soon gave way to an intense three-way rivalry also featuring the Dudley Boyz as Edge and Christian embraced their arrogant goofball sides en route to seven-time tag team championship success. Then Edge and Christian violently split when Christian became jealous over Edge attaining singles success.
  • After the split, both Edge and Christian individually became stars in their own right over the years, embracing oddly similar personas which combined passion and charisma with manipulation and guile and even picking up alliances to become successful along the way. Edge was the greater star of the two, having beaten John Cena to collect two WWE Championship reigns before becoming the prime antagonist in a rivalry with The Undertaker and Batista over the Classic World Heavyweight Championship. This rivalry saw him be supposedly sent to Hell by The Undertaker, but somehow cheated him into sending him to the Pantheon instead. He officially ascended by using Money in the Bank against John Bradshaw Layfield, making him a mere mortal while securing his own spot in the Pantheon.
  • He ascended from Demigod to Lesser God after his performance during the 8-Man Hell In A Cell Elimination match that determined the God of Pro Wrestling. He didn't win the match, but his accomplishments were enough to grant him enough appreciation from the Pantheon.
    • After having to retire from active competition in 2011 due to risking permanent paralysis in his neck, he's been awarded a place in the WWE Hall of Fame, marking him as an Intermediate God.
  • After almost ten years of going back and forth with each other, Edge and Christian finally fully patched up their issues towards what would turn out to be the final year of his active career (and one of Christian's final years). Following retirement, the two would host a WWE-produced web show together called The Edge and Christian Show that Reeks of Awesomeness, as well as a podcast called E&C's Pod of Awesomeness. Edge left both after awhile, which turned out to be for the most exciting of reasons. See the bottom of the page for more.
  • The House of Love keeps a close eye on Edge. To say that they are annoyed by the fact that he has slept with many of the female members of the Pantheon who were already in a relationship would be an understatement. However, with the ascension of his wife as his herald, things have calmed down.
  • Edge has mastered the art of opportunism to perfection. He has been able to spear many deities in a great variety of moments, such as during deep kisses, funerals, bathroom breaks, meetings, concerts, rousing speeches, recently earned victories, during the Jump Scare of a screamer, birthdays etc etc. He has even given advice to ninjas of the Pantheon.
    • Lost his second title to Dimitri Rascalov, who took it in an opportunity while he was blindsided and is ready to get it back by any means necessary.
  • Was relieved to find out that Christian made it to the Pantheon at long last...but not when Gangrel got into the Pantheon with his trademark ring of fire, shades, glasses and sinister grin. When asked why Gangrel's ascension was a bad thing, Edge immediately shut up. Gangrel just smirked, knowing that Edge would do anything to keep that dirty little secret buried and mocked him by using Edge's famous, "For the benefit of those with flash photography..." line, asking the Gods to see all three of them do a "Five-Second Pose". Edge was then seen screaming and tossing chairs everywhere and Christian was quick to run.
    • The only things that we know of in regards to Edge, Christian and Gangrel is that Grel's blood "flows through his veins" and when commented about it, Edge stated he was a "pseudo-vampire". Other than that, there's no deep connections at all.
    • Upon learning that Gangrel has grown fond of a trio of goddesses called "The Cutie Mark Crusaders", he really has no comment on how Gangrel has become fond of ponies. Then again, he has no idea what to think of John Cena's "This is whining" tactics either.
    • The reality of his history with Gangrel is that neither man has any clue what that deal was about or why Christian got involved in the first place. His reactions to Gangrel acting like a creeper are simply reflex, and he actually does appreciate the Vampire Warrior's role in helping facilitate his career.
  • Has an Odd Friendship with Rey Mysterio, having teamed up with him a few times and all. That said, the last time they teamed together, he speared Mysterio after the match was over and Rey retaliated with the 619. The next day they greeted each other as if the fight didn't happen.
  • At first, there was some animosity upon him learning that both Matt and Jeff Hardy atoned for their crimes and made it back to the Pantheon. He personally asked them to meet within the Pantheon Square Garden. The two thought it was an ambush...he just hugged them and said it was nice to see them back proper and that it was time to bury the hatchet over their antagonism towards each other. Upon hearing of the "Broken" Hardys, he admits that they're both hilarious and awesome (a complete contrast to Gangrel who hasn't forgiven the two for what they did to the Cutie Mark Crusaders in the "Tarot Crusaders" incident).
  • Has an avatar that goes by Dwight Hendrickson who tends to stay away from this particular House. Why? Well, Dwight has this special "blessing" that has it that bullets, no matter where they're fired and whoever their target was, are always going to be directed at him. Thus, Dwight has to go to the House of Craft for some powerful bullet-proof armor if he ever wants to even take two steps into the House. Dwight never carries a gun on hand, and prefers a crossbow to fighting off people.
  • Is actually a fan of the Muppets, actually bursting out laughing when he learned from Christian that his joke about Sheamus (where he mocked the Irish wrestler for looking similar to Beaker) actually was related to Beaker. Sometimes likes to heckle other gods with Statler and Waldorf.
  • Really despises Seth Rollins for the almost-Curb Stomp that would've paralyzed the Rated-R Superstar. That actually wasn't even the first time Seth antagonized a retired Edge on behalf of The Authority, either, as The Shield had once been commissioned to attack Christian in order to shut Edge up during an in-ring rant on Triple H. Even after Seth turned face, he's still not fully forgiving him. Especially since Seth has yet to address the issue with him personally. And of course, things got even more hectic when Seth became a Heel with Gods wondering how this will work, especially because....
  • Edge absolutely shocked the Pantheon by returning to the ring for the 2020 Royal Rumble, finally confirming a years-long set of rumors that he'd been physically cleared for a comeback, and even making it to the final three. Many were wondering how things would work out when he reunited with Randy Orton, who he'd allied with against DX back in the day, for a Rated RKO showdown...and were treated to the sight of Edge eliminating Orton just as Orton was ready to stab him in the back. Although Orton showed the following night that his venomous fangs would still find a way to strike at Edge, especially after losing a world title opportunity...

Gyro Zeppeli, God of Spinning Balls (The Third Zeppeli, Iulius Caesar)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f82c868d_ffa7_4ca1_b802_bc268d008230.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Stand "Scan"/"Ball Breaker" and his Horse "Valkyrie"
  • Theme Songs: GO! GO! ZEPPELI! and his theme from Eyes of Heaven
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Stand(s): “Scan”/ Ball Breaker
  • Portfolio: Spinning Balls, Big Brother Mentor, Deuteragonists, Biseinen, Nice Hats, Master of the Spin, Embarrassing First Name
  • Domain: Spinning, Balls, Mentorship
  • Allies: Johnny Joestar, William A. Zeppeli, Caesar A. Zeppeli, Bruno Buccellati, Roy Mustang, Lockon Stratos, Aikuro Mikisugi
  • Rivals: Diego Brando
  • Enemies: Funny Valentine (for killing him), Dio Brando
  • Gyro was the mentor of Johnny Joestar, guiding him until the latter mastered the Spin, while also participating in the nation wide horse race "Steel Ball Run". He has ascended by request of Johnny Joestar and the two friends reunited.
  • His Stand Scan allows him to see through people's bodies, enhance his vision, and enhances his aptitude for the Spin.
  • After losing Scan, he later gained the Stand Ball Breaker, which through the application of energy, allows him to accelerate the target's age. Through the use of the Super Spin, it can afford its effectiveness across dimensions.
  • Nyohoho!
  • Many of the gods find his jokes to be indecipherable even to some of the Cloudcuckoolanders, though they do try.
    Pizza mozzarella pizza mozzarella rella rella rella
  • Dislikes Dio Brando, finding him as a even worse version of Diego Brando, though he is surpised that Dio doesn't turn into a dinosaur like Diego. Johnny had also informed him of how he faced an alternate version of Diego summoned by Funny Valentine, who behaved more like Dio and also had The World as his Stand.
  • Gyro has allied with Roy Mustang due to having similar voices. Ditto for Lockon Stratos and Aikuro Mikisugi.

    Ratchet 
Ratchet, God of Wrenches as Weapons ("This Guy", "Sarge", "Subject 209", "Dread Pirate Ratchet")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/omniwrench_all4one.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The RYNO or the Omniwrench
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (originally Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: BFGs, One Man Armies, Massive Firepower, Stuff Blowing Up, Killer Rabbit, Former Would-Be Villain, Kid Hero, Heartwarming Orphan, Last of His Kind
  • Domains: Destruction, Good, Protection, Arsenal
  • Followers: Dieci Nakajima, Pey'j, Frank Darbo/The Crimson Bolt
  • Allies: Clank, Captain Qwark, Tidus, Jak, Daxter, Sly Cooper, Bentley Turtle, Murray Hippo, Mickey Mouse, Sora, Riku, Yuna, Aqua, Laguna Loire, Oerba Dia Vanille, Aurora, Cinderella, the Engineer, Melody, Amigo
  • Enemies: Chairman Drek, Dr. Nefarious, Courtney Gears, Gleeman Vox, Ace Hardlight, Emperor Tachyon, Polygon Man, Lady Tremaine, Maleficent
  • Ratchet has a friendly rivalry with Link over who has claim to the most diverse arsenal. Vash admires Ratchet's efforts to save the galaxy, but frowns upon the destruction that frequently follows in his wake.
    • Also has a friendly rivalry with Jak, as seen when they fought each other over Polygon Man's All-Star Power. They're currently in the race to see who can beat Maleficent in a battle first. Jak has the advantage, given he is one of only three deities who defeated Master Xehanort (the others being Terra and Riku).
      • Most recently, he fought Jak and Daxter in a Death Battle. Ratchet and Clank won due to a greater variety in their arsenal, better healing items, and Clank being able to negate Light Jak's time freeze ability. It is said that Ratchet was imminently regretful for the battle, recounting Polygon Man's attempts to force their respective predecessors (Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon) into a clash.
    • He and Clank also share a minor rival with Sora, Donald, and Goofy over their respective impacts in various worlds. The trio have constellations in one world, and African paintings in another, while the duo have statues of them with a chief to commemorate a famous battle.
  • Oftentimes confronts Max Jenius, God of Rocket Swarms, over whose Macross Missile Massacres are more spectacular.
  • Ratchet once teamed up with Aqua to help her deal with Lady Tremaine and her daughters, while she in return helps him deal with Courtney Gears after they team up to attack Blackwater City and murder its mayor.
  • Yuna once mistook Ratchet for Tidus when he responded to her whistling, due to their voices being very similar. After the confusion was settled, they decided to become friends, with Ratchet sometimes giving Yuna tips on shooting.
    • Speaking of familiar voices, Ratchet has taken quite a shine to Melody, since her voice reminds him of his Love Interest, Talwyn Apogee.
  • Due to being a lombax, Ratchet has taken on inventing as a hobby, and has invented a rocket sled, an anti-matter bathroom buddy, and "stunderwear", which was said to be huge on Umbris. He even built his first ship at the young age of fourteen... only for it to crash into Novalis during the maiden voyage.
  • Bringing up Ratchet's past, where he's a teenage lowlife obsessed with getting payback with Captain Qwark, and being a Jerkass to Clank, to the point where he was wildly hated by everyone, is a major Berserk Button, as Ratchet hates being reminded of his abusive self.
  • Whatever you do, make sure to leave Veldin, Ratchet's home planet, alone; threaten to destroy it, and Ratchet will blow you up with his countless weapons, climaxing with the RYNO V. Chairman Drek and Dr. Nefarious learned this lesson the hard way.
  • Is actually quite amused that Amigo has an all-star move which forces enemies to dance, similar to his Groovitron. The two have come to a agreement that they will use their respective moves to help their allies and distract their enemies.
  • Ratchet is, by accident, Gardevoir's original trainer, having caught her as a Ralts in a Great Ball during a major conflict.

    Shovel Knight 
Shovel Knight, God of the Shovel Strike (The Ghost of Shovels, A Shining Example of the Code of Shovelry, Butt Butt)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shovel_knight_transparent.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol/Weapon of Choice: His trusty Shovel Blade
  • Theme Song: The theme from the trailer for his game., Main Theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Shovel Strike, Improbable Weapon User, The Faceless, Knight in Shining Armor, Determinator, Hyperspace Arsenal, Hurting Hero, Nice Guy
  • Domains: Weapons, Justice, Knights
  • Allies: Shield Knight (his lover), King Arthur, Sir Arthur, Artoria Pendragon, The Soldier, Mega Man, Link, Shantae, Toejam and Earl, Sash Lilac, Specter Knight, Travis Touchdown, Isaac
  • Rivals: Scrooge McDuck
  • Opposes: Plague Knight actually complicated relationships with him and Mona
  • Enemies: In general, any forces of evil.
  • Made his way into the Pantheon after some Gods took notice of him. They found his short stature, unusual (main) weapon, and his idealistic valor endearing.
  • Had requested the help of many to provide him supplies and resources for his quest to save his beloved from the Enchantress. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the Shovel Knight is preparing for his journey as we speak.
    • After his journey, he found his place in the Pantheon, and was very pleased to learn that the title of God of Shields seems to be vacant. He attempted to get his beloved partner Shield Knight ascended to the position. But Zhang Xingcai decided to come in and take most of the tropes relating to shield uses into her position, though Shovel Knight hasn't stopped trying.
      • He finally manages to accomplish this when she ascended as Zhang's High Priestess.
  • He is well liked by Matt, Pat and Woolie who praised his adventures and now hang out together from time to time.
  • Most of the pantheon says he's what Mega Man and Link would be should the two ever fuse. Although he is happy to have them as his allies, Shovel Knight is rather annoyed at the statement.
  • During his travels of his land, crossed paths with the God of War, Kratos. After a fierce battle that required the use of many of his Relics, Kratos deemed him a worthy opponent, helping him to rise to Intermediate status.
  • Shovel Knight once accidentally made fun of Sven, not realizing that he's more than just a Lesser God, which caused the Rogue Knight to get pumped up with God's Strength and smacked him silly. To make up for that blunder, Shovel Knight then issued a challenge to Chaos Knight... but that kinda failed too.
  • After the Plague of Shadows DLC, a little doubt has been cast over Shovel Knight's hero-ness, given that he attacks Plague Knight from behind after being defeated by him (twice, no less) and he doesn't pull the Order of No Quarter back up from dangling after defeating them (when a caring player could and would). Shovel Knight so far has not commented on this, even as the testifier himself made that accusation. Still, if the people in his world regard Plague Knight as a hero… well, he'd rather not get involved with the Plague Doctor at least.
    • At least, until he was told of WHY Plague Knight went on his quest; to try and become powerful enough for Mona to love when, when in fact she already did love him. Because of this new information, he has decided to lay off being suspicious of him, but still warned him to not cause trouble, to while Plague Knight agreed while rolling his eyes underneath his mask.
  • On one of his adventures, he somehow ended up in a strange world where there were three dimensions. Unused to the feeling of being able to move in so many directions, he found the whole experience extremely disorienting and unpleasant and reacted with horror when he was told that many other such worlds exist. Unwilling to let any obstacle, no matter how daunting, come between him and the possibility of treasure, he sought out worlds that were somewhere in between two and three dimensions, hoping to build up a tolerance to the third dimension that way.
  • Recently, the Blue Burrower located such a world, and returned from an adventure there with a brand new story to tell.
  • Found himself in an unexpected brawl after following a trail of gems to the temple of one Scrooge McDuck. The battle was set to be in his favor thanks to the fact that Scrooge's cane couldn't penetrate his armor until Scrooge turned the tide, using a pair of rayguns to neutralize his inertia and friction—but not gravity—and used Shovel Knight's own Shovel Blade to decapitate the knight himself. After things settled down, they have become interested in one another, and Shovel Knight is thinking of giving Scrooge a Shovel Blade of his own.
  • Has been invited to a tournament somewhat similar to that of Master Hand's. And fellow Indie Game deities like Sash Lilac, Captain Viridian, Octodad, and Dust have been invited as well.
    • He was also invited to another tournament, and was surprised to see that Isaac got this same invitation, fighting with much more than just his tears this time. Despite the initial shock, Shovel Knight has deemed Isaac a respectable opponent and can be seen training with him.
    • And just recently, he was invited as an Assist Trophy to the Master Hand's tournament, Super Smash Bros., albeit just as an Assist Trophy. Even though he's not a full-fledged fighter, Shovel Knight considers this a great honor.
  • One day while resting in his temple, he woke up to see Shield Knight laying down and resting in his lap. When confused and asked her about why she wasn't with Zhang, the goddess she was the high priestess of, Shield Knight showed him her official papers that made her a diety. While overjoyed at this news, his joy turned to surprise as he saw it was Plague Knight and Mona whom helped her ascend. Despite this shock, he was more than happy to thank them, even offering to help Plague Knight as long as it doesn't involve destruction. To his surprise, Plague Knight simply asked if he could give him good romance advice with his relationship with Mona, to which the blue knight accepted.
    • Upon hearing Shield Knight was planning to set out on a trip to the TV World to conquer her Shadow, he insisted to the Investigation Team that he was coming along to help her. Despite the risks of running into Shovel Knight's own Shadow if he does, and that he would be unable to help Shield Knight should they beat it and grant him his Persona, he decided that it was worth it and the Team relented. The mission was a success, and Shield Knight managed to obtain her Persona as a result.
  • Shovel Knight! His spade shall smite! And he won't take anybody's shite! Not he!

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her open Tessen
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Weapon of Choice: Tessen
  • Portfolio: Ninjas, Razor Wind, Paper Fans of Doom, Defrosting Ice Queen, Summoning Kamaitachi, Long-Range Fighter, Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Domain: Air, Family, Sand, Ninjutsu
  • Allies: Shikamaru Nara (her husband), Gaara, Batman, Masaki Andoh, Captain Planet, Anji Mito, Kitana
  • Often visits the House of Love to convene with Mai Shiranui (fellow ninja) and at the Academy to spend tea time with Shizuru (they both love the color purple).
  • Normally has to work with Batman to get Shikamaru to do anything (that is, he tells her what needs to be done, and she gets the lazy bum to do it).
    • Any insinuations that she and Shikamaru are an item will result in outrage... and possibly violence. Saying "I told you so." After they inevitably hooked up ends with more violence.
  • Doesn't take kindly to those who point out that "that hairstyle looks so much better on Yotsuba..."
  • Expected Masaki Andoh to be her follower, considering his friends already followed the Gods of their respective elements. But he didn't show up... until the day of his ascension alongside with his fellow partners.

    Toyotomi Hideyoshi 
Toyotomi Hideyoshi, God of Using Human Bodies as Weapons (Gorilla, the Supreme King)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hideyoshi_sb4_render_9609.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Toyotomi Clan crest... with his Power Fist clenched upwards.
  • Theme Song: This is a Fight to Change the World, Comrade's Gauntlet
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Large and in Charge, Bad Guys With Honor, Power Fist, Grabbing Allies And Smacking Enemies With Them, Grapplers, Not-So-Good Light, Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • Domains: War, Weapons, 'Friendship'
  • Allies: Ishida Mitsunari, Dian Wei, Otani Yoshitsugu.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Oda Nobunaga
  • Enemies: Tokugawa Ieyasu, Maeda Keiji, Fortinbras
  • Friendly Enemies With: Raoh, Adell
  • Worthy Opponent: Mori Motonari
  • Rose from the grave due to the efforts of his trusted vassal Ishida Mitsunari. Hideyoshi plans to resume his conquest... as well as vengeance on Ieyasu who killed him. Things went on a boost when Hideyoshi's strategist, Otani Yoshitsugu, ascended.
  • Has a friendly rivalry with Raoh. Due to their stances within the GUAE and GUAG, they often come to blows... and respect each others' strength.
  • Recently he has been working towards finding a seat of power to ensure Hanbei Takenaka's ascension next. Once all of his top retainers have reached godhood, he can begin to move forward. However, as of recent, he seemed to be delaying the project, waiting for one more top retainer... Sakon Shima.
  • Considers Mori Motonari as a worthy opponent.
  • Dian Wei despite being a bit close with Hideyoshi, tends to upset him when he feels he needs to change for the better. Hideyoshi retorts by saying his rule is much more guaranteed than Cao Cao's of all people.
  • Surprisingly enough, he gets confused with either Piccolo or Vegeta, due to having them a same voice.
  • Hideyoshi has learned somewhere from his 'origin' that had he succeeded unifying the Land of the Rising Sun, he would've continued to expand the borders into the land called 'Korea' through a bloody campaign... although it ended with the 'origin' failing. Hideyoshi claims that if he would have his current army, he would've succeeded in his 'origin''s stead.
  • He also learned how in another timeline he was kind of a weasel that submitted to the power of Genma. Hideyoshi is not amused and swore that he will bury that image with his fist, and the Genma along with it. And so, when Fortinbras came to offer him strength again, Hideyoshi had a violent battle and ended up throwing Fortinbras out of his house and gave a law that all who fights under the Toyotomi banner must NEVER succumb to Genma influence, or else they get splattered with his fist.
  • Lately Hideyoshi has been having a certain fit of headaches that required him to rest, which would result him dreaming on fighting a certain man who claimed to be himself, wielding a sansetsukon while looking more monkey-like, and claims that he's nothing but a tyrant, and a ruler should strive to make a land where the people can be happy. Hideyoshi usually rebuked that he'd rather have his people strong than happy, and the fact that this alternate Hideyoshi still had his Nene makes him a weakling unworthy of the throne (he killed his Nene to prove his commitment to power). But the battle never concluded because Hideyoshi always woke up mid-battle.
    • However, after seeing what kind of work he's done to Mitsunari's personality, the staff-wielding Hideyoshi is more determined than ever to bring down the gorilla man. He also fears while he's already launched his historical-self's "infamous Korean Campaign" again with the same ill success as with his historical counterpart, he may try it again; now that he's returned from his death by Ieyasu's hands, staff-wielding-Hideyoshi is having none of that.
      • Due to more recent visions, he deems the 'fat-gentleman Ieyasu', 'ambiguously-evil Nobunaga' and several others who'd outright oppose his power as even more threats on his plate, as they are the same ones who'd go against him only double due to being alternate incarnations...a rivalry he hopes will come to blows sooner rather then later. He is also more jealous than ever of the "monkey-man's" friendship with Saika Magoichi, a famous name of certain individuals of a clan he never got along with.
      • Recently, gorilla-Hideyoshi seems to be winning an argument against monkey-Hideyoshi in that since they are the same person, then what they do is no different; there appears to be another timeline of monkey-Hideyoshi ending up just as cold-and-cruel just to enforce peace, only to break down in despair of what he's done when faced at a weak moment. While the gorilla taunts away, the monkey admits this and is not afraid to say that both of them can change for the better.
      • Gorilla-Hideyoshi is also amused at the shamisen-version-Motochika's voice. It sounds JUST like his own, as mentioned before; but in Hideyoshi's case he's often the most baffled since the Motochika he remembers is a lot more rowdy and clearly is a pirate that needs to be subjugated in his eyes. However, both the anchor-pirate and the shamisen wielder have stated to him that they would defy the fate he would forcefully place upon them to the very end.
      • He's also recently met Nene (the ninja one), and he seems to feel a hint of wavering in front of her. Nene tried to convince him to change, but the gorilla man tried to kill her the same he did with his Nene after overpowering her in battle; Basara-Keiji and Koei-Hideyoshi came in on time, with the latter swearing to bring him to death, even if he'd risk his own life in the process due to their lifelink.

  • Complicated Relationship: The House of Death and Postmortem and Luck and Fortune
  • One of the most dangerous people that come from Nevada, Tricky started as just another of the many grunts that defended the Sheriff from Hank Wimbleton's wrath and he was taken down as easily as any other foe. Though in Hank's second attempt at trying to kill the sheriff, Tricky was killed (again) and zombified only to be killed yet again. But then Tricky became Hank's primary Arch-Enemy, returning with a portable improbability device that allows him to manipulate reality however he wants, and he did so by torturing Hank and constantly reviving and killing him just for his own amusement. One of his many weapons is a stop sign with a "!" that he totes as his Weapon of Choice and allowed him to achieve a place in the Pantheon.
  • Tricky at first just came to the Pantheon for one simple reason: to kill Hank again. And once he found him...let's just say the entire House of Slaughter was destroyed in the process. Eventually both Tricky and Hank came back to life, but before they could resume the fight the Pantheon authorities stepped in and stop both of them before things got out of hand. Tricky has been a constant nuisance for Hank and now that he is in the Pantheon he intends to make his stay a living nightmare.
  • Tricky is a special case regarding death since he tends to die a lot, even resurrecting minutes after being killed and rarely respawning like most deities who happen to get killed in the Pantheon. That's because of the Portable Improbability Drive stuck inside his head which also gives him access to all sorts of reality altering powers, and even in the off-chance the device is destroyed, he will come back via normal resurrections or the rare intervention of his universe's Higher Powers. And not many people (Save for Hank) have actually tried to kill Tricky. Why? BECAUSE YOU DON'T KILL CLOWN. CLOWN KILLS YOU!
  • Tricky is not always actively trying to kill everybody he comes accross, he's been trying to make some friends cause he knows he's bound to make plenty of enemies. Surprisingly, he and Pennywise became good friends even if the two have widely different methods when it comes to disposing of their enemies. Similarly, the Violator, Needles Kane and The Joker all consider him a kindred spirit and whenever they need a bit of an assistance in their chaotic schemes, they are sure to bring Tricky along for the ride. And the Klowns think of him as some sort of god or chosen one given his powers.
  • But not all of the clowns were as welcoming to Tricky, especially considering how much of loose canon he can be. As usual, another evil insane clown certainly didn't amuse Ronald McDonald but even he wasn't the only as other notably chaotic deities like Vex found tricky to be exceptionally hard to get along with though they know better than to provoke him. And there is Marx, who is probably one of the few that is willing to engage Tricky on his brand of madness just to see how far he can go in a fight.
  • Tricky's origins actually predate his time in Nevada, apparently he has been seen in other places before, even maskerading as Orange Princess one time but that Tricky could possibly be unrelated to the zombified monstosity that terrorizes the Pantheon on a daily basis. In fact, he once decided to pull that trick by disguising himself as Daisy to see how many people he could fool. After he was outed, half of the house was left in shambles.
  • He is well aware that several deities are afraid of clowns and he uses that fear to pull a few pranks on them. Billy is one of his favourite ones simply because he becomes a sobbing mess, to the point that Tricky spends more time tormeting Billy than actively trying to kill Hank. Once he gets bored, he tends to mess with Columbus from the Zombieland group (who has dealt with zombie clowns in the past) and he knows it's hopeless to fight the clown and tries to appease him in any way he can, but that ultimately gets Columbus killed anyway.
  • Tricky is probably one of the strongest zombies in the Pantheon that isn't a god of death already but considering what he can do, he might as well be. His status as a zombie is due to being resurrected by Jebus in Hank's second attempt at killing the Sheriff and several deities that come from a Zombie Apocalypse are utterly terrified of the clown. His sheer brutality actual caught the attention of Khorne, who suggested Tricky to join his forces but the clown seems to not be interested in serving the chaos god, but Khorne is just content with seeing the clown go to town with his enemies.
  • His status as an undead force definitely caught the ire of Meridia, and the daedric prince is not someone to be messed with. She personally came to his temple to smite him into oblivion but Tricky, like usual, put a hell of a fight and almost managed to subdue the daedric prince but before they could cause more damage, the authorities managed to resolve the situation and momentarily destroy Tricky so Meridia would back down and she did eventually. Tricky later came back like usual and occassionally takes a shot or two at Meridia's temple because he is still pretty salty about losing that one battle.
  • The Improbability Drive has been compared to the powers of the Scarlet Witch and Wanda certainly is not a huge fan of Tricky, considering him a menace to the Pantheon as a whole that hasn't gotten out of hand because of his petty grudge against Hank Wimbleton. Tricky has claimed he can beat her in a fight but find her a boring opponent, a claim that Wanda finds preposterous.
  • Sometimes when he is in a good mood, he likes to go to the House of Music and act as a dj, and some have stated he is pretty good at it. Whenever he is around the house he tends to be pretty relaxed but can be provoked into a fight if you piss him off enough (or if Hank wanders in, he's been known to start fights for a boombox after all).
    • He also had a short-lived bit as a train conductor, obviously another his many attempts at messing with Hank after he ripped his head off. He attempted to continue his job as a conductor by hijacking Thomas the Tank Engine but grew bored after he realized that thomas was just a simple train with no extra abilities and decided to roll with his own train instead. Thomas is still traumatized about the experience and would rather not talk about it.
  • Tricky is also known to antagonize Shizuo Heiwajima because he dislikes him also using a stop sign as a Weapon of Choice and Shizuo in turn dislikes him for embodying everything he hates about a person, makin Izaya seem tame in comparison. Shizuo surprisingly is hard to put down for Tricky and even all the reality manipulation that the improbability drive allows has done little to stop Shizuo's seemingly unending determination.
  • Not fond of those that resemble Jesus Christ, given his own history with the man and him being responsible for his zombification, but he's gotten used to it at this point. He often likes to attack Aslan unprovoked with his signature stop sign, something that the Lion finds incredibly annoying and a constant nuisance like Tricky has certainly made his stay in the Pantheon quite difficult.
  • Not many know of Tricky's former life as Dr. Hoffnar, one of the members of Project Nexus that years later became the clown we all know after going severely insane. He is also one of Dr. Christoff's old colleagues, who would later become Jebus Christ.
  • "Just do what comes natural."

Lesser Gods

    Beowulf (Skullgirls

"It's time! It's time! It's BEOWULF TIME!!"

Beowulf, God of Chair Bashing (Kamrad Volk)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/42df69c62e5beb4b9837b669a2eb540a.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His foldable chair, "The Hurting", with his wolf pelt laying on it
  • Theme Music: The Crowd Goes Wild
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Weapon of Choice: The Hurting
  • Portfolio: Bashing People With a Chair Called "The Hurting", Pro Wrestling Is Real, Large Ham, Using a Gigan's Arm To Attack, Underestimated Badass Normal, Retired Badass (Returned), Idiot Hero, Determinator
  • Domains: Wrestling, Chairs, Wolves
  • High Priest: Rob Van Dam
  • Allies: King II, Zangief, John Cena, Kanji Tatsumi, Captain Qwark, Yamcha, Parasoul, Filia, Cerebella
  • Rivals: Edge
  • Enemies: Double, Bloody Marie, Eliza (even if he never met her)
  • A formerly retired professional wrestler from the Canopy Kingdom, he was hailed as a hero for defeating (and killing) a Gigan called Grendel in a wrestling match. Where he eventually fell into obscurity, he returned back to the ring to defeat the current Skullgirl with his trusty chair "The Hurting", Grendel's severed arm and his wrestling skills.
  • He managed to ascend partly because of how much the crowd wanted him to return back to the ring. In the first exhibition match in the Pantheon, the crowd went wild when he stepped onto the ring. The Wulfamania is running wild and he ain't stopping!
  • Where he might be a mere Lesser God, do not underestimate him. Sure, Grendel was drugged so that Beowulf could beat him, and then he killed his rather frail mother, but he can possibly beat Double, Marie and Grendel in his full strength more or less alone. He also doesn't simply throw people way heavier than him, he picks them up, carries them around and then throws them.
  • He tends to avoid any gods with necromancy powers in the fear that they might use Grendel's arm against him.
  • Note that he is NOT based on Kanji Tatsumi. Beowulf himself admits that where Kanji has the potential of becoming a good wrestler after having a match with him, he thinks that he is bit too rough on the edges. That, and he really should stop breaking his chairs.
    • He sees Edge as a rival though, especially when it comes to the Rated-R Superstar performing his famous Con-Chair-Tos on them.
  • His title is meant to read as bashing people with chair, not bashing the chair itself.
  • For whatever reason, anytime he does his grand finisher, Canis Major Press, Mr. Champloo comes up to count the pins. He says that he sounds like his usual referee.
  • Is buddies with Captain Qwark due the fact that he himself was a fake hero, even if he only found out about it way later, and trying to make up for it later.
  • Sympathises with Yamcha as Beowulf knows what it's like to be considered a loser. Beowulf has even taken to wearing Yamcha's colours sometimes during matches to honour him.

    Diddy Kong 
Diddy Kong, God of Edible Ammunition (The Acrobat, Number 36)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/viiythu_9.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Nintendo Cap next to a Peanut Popgun
  • Theme Music: Stickerbush Symphony, The Map Page/Bonus Level (Smash Bros. medley), Title Theme (Diddy Kong Racing) (when kart racing), Solar Aura during other sporting events
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Gadgets Made out of Barrels, Firing Guns That Shoot Peanuts, Red Caps, Wearing Clothes (But No Pants), Banana Peels
  • Domains: Monkeys, Guns, Friendship
  • Allies: Donkey Kong, Cranky Kong, Dixie Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. (also a Friendly Rival), Mario, Luigi, JonTron, Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Conker the Squirrel, Banjo & Kazooie, AiAi, Amigo, King Kong
  • Enemies: King K. Rool, Lord Fredrik, Bashmaster, Mojo Jojo, Bowser, Tabuu, Galeem & Dharkon, Frieza, Koba
  • Disliked by: Dr. Zaius
  • Diddy Kong is Donkey Kong's most frequent ally for whenever trouble is afoot. Given his small stature, he is more agile than DK is, but can't run into stronger enemies without getting bumped away from them. In addition to his speed he can use a Rocketbarrel pack to move farther and a Peanut Popgun to shoot enemies. The peanuts that are fired can be eaten without issue. If Diddy really wants to be serious, he can fire his Peanut Popguns while taking it to the skies via Rocketbarrel Pack.
  • A barrel showed up one day in the Pantheon bearing the words "DK" in bright red. Some deities figured that Donkey Kong would be able to determine what was in the barrel after hearing some noises come from it. Sure enough, Donkey Kong arrived onto the scene, picked up the barrel, and after throwing it, a chimpanzee with a red shirt and red cap emerged from the barrel. Donkey Kong was relieved to know that his buddy Diddy made it to the Pantheon without serious issues, even if being stuck in a barrel for a long time was rough.
  • He has been a participant of the Smash tournament since the third iteration, bringing his Peanut Popguns with him alongside some banana peels to trip up opponents. Plenty has happened during these times, such as striking up an alliance with Fox (their first meeting together had them fighting Rayquaza) and Falco in order to save Donkey Kong before eventually joining with other Nintendo characters to fight Tabuu. Diddy also got involved in the war against Galeem & Dharkon, learning that not only was his Rocketbarrel Pack not fast enough to outrun Galeem's ultimate attack, but that Galeem turned Diddy & DK's Kong friends (and some of their Animals Buddies) into Spirits as well.
  • Kidnappings are something that he's very familar with, especially since he got stuck inside a barrel to start with. When DK got kidnapped by K. Rool, Diddy and Dixie worked together to save DK. In addition to DK getting kidnapped again sometime later, Diddy got kidnapped by K. Rool, prompting Dixie and her friend Kiddy Kong to save the two. With kidnappings in the Pantheon being a relatively frequent occurance, he works together alongside the other Kongs to thwart them, provided that he or his allies don't get kidnapped first.
  • He and DK visit the House of Music as among the recreational activities in their down time to perform alongside monkey musician Amigo. However, he did notice that Amigo wasn't all that eager to be performing with a heavy metal instrument, so he decided to do something else instead; sing. Amigo was quite pleasantly surprised at this and is eager to perform with them again, maybe serving as a background instrument with a duet between Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
  • AiAi came across Diddy one day eating some bananas and decided to join him. During a chat between them, Diddy learned of the various "Monkey Ball" activities that AiAi does and was curious about them. After partaking in some of these activities alongside AiAi, Diddy found the activities to be interesting, though some of them were a bit too much for him to handle (with how both Monkey Golf and Monkey Baseball work being a bit ridiculous not just for Diddy, but a few others as well). It hasn't really impacted Diddy and AiAi's friendship in any way and they still do some Monkey Ball competitions with each other (with a couple other Kongs such as Dixie joining in sometimes).
  • Diddy learned that before he joined DK, there was another monkey that hanged around with DK; that monkey being Donkey Kong Jr. At first, Diddy and DK Jr. weren't quite friendly with each other, but warmed up to each other as they got to know each other better. If the two aren't fighting against the Kongs' primary arch-enemies, then Diddy and DK Jr. engage in a bit of friendly competition to determine who gets to partake in adventure or recreational activities with DK. There have been some instances of DK Jr. getting in tennis matches with Diddy as a result.
  • Before taking part in recreational activities with DK, Diddy had his own racing adventure. Conker and Banjo without Kazooie were among those who joined Diddy in the races. Banjo decided to get Diddy to meet up with Conker against as it's been a while and the chimp was surprised to learn that the Conker he was seeing was completely different from the Conker that joined him in beating Wizpig. Banjo explained that Conker became changed drastically and that he's trying to at least, not make him crazy behind the wheel. Conkey was surprised to see Diddy as well and even with the change in the squirrel's attitude, still saw him as a friend. Diddy is still on good terms with Conker and is thankful that Banjo is keeping an eye on the squirrel since Diddy is very busy with other matters for him to hang out with his racing buddies more often.
    • In addition to his own kart-racing endeavor with Banjo and Conker, Diddy is generally familiar with racing as a result of kart-racing with Mario and his friends. There was another racing competition that the Kong Krew partook in that involved using drums to rocket across different tracks. Deities outside of the Kong Krew and K. Rool who have attempted it found it to be very unorthodox even if comparison to other strange racing competitions.
  • While there are a few other primates for Diddy to hang around with, there are a small number of such that Diddy has to be careful around. Mojo Jojo, being an insane monkey with aspirations of taking over the world, is someone whom Diddy is very wary of, especially since Mojo Jojo is more than capable of being manipulative in order to achieve his goals. Koba's homicidal behavior is even worse in that regard and Diddy is more than frightened of him and seeing him in get into a fight with someone.
    • Dr. Zaius is a monkey that dislikes the Kong Krew quite a bit. Zaius is aware of the Kong Krew having capabilities better than that of normal primates (especially with Diddy's agility and weaponry), but feels their potential is being wasted on frivolous free-time activities instead of proving their superiority towards humans. Diddy and the other Kongs really don't share Zaius' opinion of humans, likely because of said free-time activities.
  • When he first heard about King Kong, Diddy thought that the giant gorilla was a long-lost member of the Kong Krew. Upon seeing King Kong, Diddy was amazed at how large it was and quickly learned afterwards that King Kong tends to himself and isn't really related to the Kongs in any way. Not that it prevents Diddy and the other Kongs from maintaining a good-enough friendship with King Kong.
  • There are a few who aren't amused in the slightest about Diddy using peanuts as ammo, especially coming from those who are allergic to peanuts. Pit has apparently claimed that getting pelted with peanuts isn't that bad, but then again, this is the same guy who has claimed that "Floor Ice Cream gives you health" previously.

  • Conflicting Opinion: AJ Lee
  • Kitana is the princess of Edenia, daughter of King Jerrod and Queen Sindel and for the longest time one of Shao Kahn's personal and best assassins. She grew up believing he was his biological father, until the Mortal Kombat universe in Outworld made her realize he wasn't her real father but a conqueror who merged Outworld with her home realm of Edenia. Since then, Kitana has joined the Earthrealm warriors battled against the forces of whoever wanted to take over their realm, even gaining back control over Edenia. Given her being one of the signature fighters that use Combat Hand Fans, Kitana was later granted godhood after being recommended by Liu Kang.
  • While the Kitana here is a force of good, a different timeline had the same events play out differently. Her mother was revived and strenghtened with the soul of Shang Tsung, which caused the deaths of not only her but several other Earthrealm warriors. Said fighters also ended up becoming revenants thanks to Quan Chi, all of them serving both Quan Chi and Shinnok it their attempt at taking over Earthrealm and developing a hatred for Raiden. This version of Kitana even managed to become the Empress of the Netherrealm after Shinnok's with Liu Kang as Emperor while also being the default holder of the title. Some timeline rifts resulted in the heroic Kitana appearing in the pantheon and defeating her revenant self to seek control of the temple and the title, earning her the right to be the representative of the trope.
    • Speaking of her revenant self, she is not exactly proud of becoming the Empress of the Netherrealm after Shinnok's defeat and set to right the wrongs she committed in the pantheon, first by defeating Shao Kahn and becoming the new Kahn of Outworld, an action that caused the new Kitana to be showered by praise. She also kickstarted an attempt by the past versions of some of her friends to seize control of the temples of the pantheon from their revenants counterparts, especially Liu Kang and Kung Lao.
  • It's no secret that she and Liu Kang have had eyes for each other for a very long time but several circumstances have kept them from making it official. That all changed after Kronika was defeated. With his newfound powers, Fire God Liu Kang chose Kitana as his partner in being the new Time Keepers and Kitana accepted being at his side. No one knows what they plan to do after that but she and Liu Kang have stated that they will let things play out naturally.
  • Like many who became revenants, she had a falling out with Raiden, which later made her meet new mentors in the form of Thrall and Rachel Alucard. Things took a dark turn when her pantheon self became a revenant once more but the events of the time merging caused Kitana to change for the better, as stated above. She and Raiden became allies once more and she still keeps in touch with both Thrall and Rachel as a form of gratitude for taking care of her. She is a bit closer to the latter given her vocal resemblance to her best friend and confidant Jade, acting as a sort of replacement until she eventually finds her place in the pantheon.
  • The fact that her revenant self received visions where she would have saved Edenia if Raiden hadn't tampered with the timeline was a huge reason Kitana stayed a revenant unlike her other comrades. However, she later discovered that these visions where just a possible timeline of many and that Raiden is hardly to blame, but the Lich King Arthas Menethil is partly responsible for feeding this thoughts to Kitana, making her relation to others start to fall apart. After becoming Kahn of Outworld and finding out that she herself will never grew accustomed to Edenian culture after being raised for years in Outworld, she decided to forego this vision and swore to take down Arthas. This in turn brought her a new ally in the form of Bolvar Fordragon, the other Lich King, since he too wanted to dethrone Arthas' position as the leader of the Scourge and Kitana believing he was the Lesser of Two Evils, she agreed on Bolvar's terms.
  • Doesn't like AJ Lee, despite the fact she once dressed as her in a Halloween match. This enmity originated for the fact that AJ Lee joined forces with Mileena. However, after a wonderful performance in WrestleMania with Paige to take out the Bella Twins, Kitana changed her perception of the Geek Goddess.
  • There used to be a time where Kitana could turn into a rabbit and then proceeded to devour her opponents. She hasn't displayed that ability for a long time but those who have witnessed her do that have compared it to the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, Kitana being surprised that such a creature even existed but she isn't exactly flattered by the comparison.
  • While being of Royal Blood, Kitana doesn't feel like one herself, mostly thanks to the years she's been raised as a trained assassin under Shao Kahn. She did however end up meeting a few princesses in the House of Royalty that were curious about her position as Outworld's Kahn and wondering if it had anything to do with being a Queen. She first met Princesses Peach and Zelda, who welcomed Kitana and showed her the ins and outs of the Royalty house while sharing their respective histories with Bowser and Ganondorf, which Kitana found no different from Shao Kahn.
    • She also came accross someone who at first she thought was another clone of her thanks to a similar sounding voice (To give her credit, she grew a bit paranoid after Mileena was created) but it turned out to be King Artoria Pendragon. Both shared the same desire for justice and a just rule for their people, while bonding over their shared affection over another person. While Artoria thinks she wasn't the best ruler of Camelot, Kitana believes she has done her best.
  • Naturally hates and despises conquerors and Evil Overlords, Shao Kahn being chief among them. Her "father" tried to give her a warm welcome by trying to bash her skull the moment she stepped a foot in the pantheon but thankfully he was stopped before doing so. He is still sore about being defeated by Sindel's ungrateful daughter and is plotting to take the throne of Kahn back, whatever means necessary.
    • Emperor Palpatine is another one on Kitana's kill list, as his rule on The Empire has been comparable or arguably worse that Shao Kahn's rule on Outworld. To that end she tried to form an alliance with his opposition, finding common ground with Leia Organa and establishing an alliance between the rebels and Kitana's Outworld army.
  • Kitana was one of several who found themselves involved in a merging of realms, meeting several heroes and villains of the DC Universe along the way. During said time she ended up meeting Superman and Wonder Woman, who she came to admire given their dedication towards justice. On that note, Darkseid is another Evil Overlord she seeks to take down, not only for what he represents but also because he fused with her father during said events and tried to take over the combined realms.
    • Then she ended up hearing about the alternate universe where Superman became a tyrant and she was distraught to learn that one of her allies could fall so low, reminding Kitana of her revenant self but nonetheless she has no pity for Regime Superman . From that universe she also heard about Starfire, a tamaran princess who lost her home planet and sounded a lot like her and befriended her after bonding over their similar backgrounds.
  • She is a bit apprehensive of clones, considering her relationship with Mileena. Even if she is just an Evil Knockoff of her with a less than gracious face, deep down she does care a bit about Mileena, in some timelines even willing to forgive her and offer her sister to join her. Following Mileena's death at the hands of D'Vorah, Kitana keeps one of her sais as a memento, possibly as a Tragic Keepsake. That said, Mileena still wants to outdo her sister in any way she can.
  • As the divine holder of the Combat Hand Fan, she does like to train those who want to use them for kombat. However, given her Lady of War fighting style, she favours more graceful warriors and that's why she likes to spar with Mai Shiranui and Yukiko Amagi.

  • The House of Knowledge has its fair share of stories, both known and unknown. Some are varied with numerous characters and some are with a simple premise. One of the stories was about a kid who would be a local storyteller on his village and a caretaker to his mother. After encountering a mysterious group of Sisters, he would need to find his grandfather's armor to protect himself. On the way, he would meet two guardians, a Beetle and a Monkey, who he has bonded throughout his journey and on the way saw his true origins, the reason for him being hunted down and his one missing eye. He would find the true cause of it, his late grandfather and his aunts, which are the Sisters and their Moon Kingdom, wanting to bring him to their newfound godly life. Ultimately, he would find peace through The Power of Love but as he says it, his ending could have been far better than what he got.
    • After the story was shared, a young man with an eyepatch and a shamisen wandered into part of the Narrative House and told a story for anyone to hear. Sometimes, he talked about his father Hanzo's exploits against the Moon King. Other times, he spoke of his own perilous quest to defeat the same guy with three relics. Regardless, many people regardless of age take a great liking to his brand of storytelling, accompanied by music from his shamisen and a collection of origami figurines that come to life when he plays. When the guardians found the young man, they realized it was the person from the story they have told, the kid hero Kubo as they call him. This welcoming storyteller was humble on him joining to the Pantheon ranks.
  • The prospect of a unified dimension where different characters of varying places is an interesting idea for him. At first he thought it would be like the Moon Kingdom and their mindset against humans, but the first step he took into the Pantheon was greeted with kindness. Sure there are still evil deities here and there but for the most part, almost everyone he has met are either a hero of their own story or a good guy similar to him. This made him much happier as his story is now well known and wishes to share it to the other children of the Pantheon, as a way to make their lives better like his. It also allowed him to discover new houses such as the House of Narrative, his most visited place, the House of Life and Death and so much more, with the exception of the House of Villains and Vengeance.
    • There is one problem when it comes to having a large universe of different characters: it can bring confusion especially when it comes to similar names. It is a normal thing to deal with for experienced deities but for Kubo it took some time to get used to this situation, such as when he heard someone call Monkey's name, thinking she came back from the dead. Though he would be somewhat disappointed that there was another character named Monkey who was very different from the Monkey he knew, from his voice to even his knowledge from Kung Fu. Though seeing a friendly opportunity, this Monkey introduced the Furious Five to him and was astounded on their achievements, especially when there was a mention of the Spirit World. This also happened when it came to his father Hanzo, or so it would be until he saw the archer Hanzo but it was not his father, instead it was Hanzo Shimada. He apologized but the two realized their cultures, especially with the sight of the shamisen and welcomed him.
  • Storytelling isn't easy as while making up plots can sound simple, may take time to fully make sense, especially on endings, where he has problems making a decent ending on his stories told to his mother. This is further reflected on his name, "Kubo" refers to a dent, or an empty space, that while supposedly full, is actually lacking for some reason. As a result, many of his stories have missing endings and admits making one is difficult. And while his journey did end somewhat well, he still wanted it to be much more happier, such as with the case of his grandfather. That won't stop him from being a welcoming storyteller and a kind child hero to everyone.
    • He is often the center of attention when it comes to numerous tales and visits the House of Narrative almost everyday. Some say that the House of Narrative has fondness for him and gave him a spot as one of the few storytellers, others would say it was his own decision to tell a story every once in a while. Its for this reason why many children and those interested in what he has to say often enjoy his company, almost like a bard but for those with a knack for tales. The Storyteller loves him for this, as the kid's love for stories is similar to his, and proof that some kids just love a good story in any time. He still has more stories to tell than him but the kid appreciates his lessons.
  • When he isn't telling stories, he comes over to the Death and Postmortem House to give the souls of his parents a visit as well as soothe whoever visits the place with his music. He says it is in honor and respect to greet them whenever he has the chance to, as without them he wouldn't be able to learn the lessons he gained on his journey and wished that they could have lived near the ending. If the need arises, however, they can return to his aid as Monkey and Beetle. One would ask why his parents become Monkey and Beetle but he says it is more complicated than that and has to do with curses which he is willing to share.
  • Being an orphan is not an easy life, especially living with no father to boot. For him though, he remains very happy and content with his life, as his humble attitude earned much of respect for many deities, save for some who do not follow the same life as his. Many wonder how long this will last but considering the journey he has experienced, it is safe to say that he will remain humble and content for the rest of his life knowing his parents may rest and his grandfather's change of heart. Even with such affirmation, he knows the world is more than whatever revolves around him and will do whatever it takes to fight for the good of not only his village but even those in danger.
    • He is very welcome to meet similar orphans, hoping to connect to them in a personal level and convince some to remain humble in life. It is for this reason that being friends with Simba was pretty quick. The latter knows how it is to lose your parents from the most unfortunate scenarios and surprisingly, encounters with them outside of the afterlife. He asked if Kubo was suit to be a king, but the child declined, stating he is fine with where he lives and the village he takes care of. To him, being a king is unnecessary but wishes Simba the best of luck.
    • More orphans heard his story and were glad to meet him, some which were pitied by the child for their unfortunate upbringing. Some however, are able to continue their resolve and continue living despite the issues surrounding their pasts, and such was his reaction upon meeting Tetsuo Tsurugi who, despite his desperation for yearned love for his parents and fear of being alone, is something both he and Kubo have experienced, though most orphans are unable to survive through such and are traumatized in the end. This was the case when he met Hilda, the Leona Heidarn and the Baudelaire Siblings, orphans who had dealt more issues than what they had expected in their parentless lives. Even with his music and sense of good stories, it wasn't enough to ease their pain, especially the latter, though things may change following Beatrice finally contacting the duo which made Kubo delighted to hear about.
    • He did make a surprising discovery of a group of orphans who are admittedly fans of his power, so much that they follow him everywhere he goes all for the beautiful sight of music and art combined. Lead by the Orphan Quintet and other orphans such as Oliver Twist, Madeline, and another Annie, they march around the Pantheon as a sign of happiness to all children and are eager to hear any story Kubo has in mind, not to mention some of them may help him in his desire to create a happy ending in some of his tales.
  • The status of being a lone child, while able to adapt and even be happy about it, also brought with it unimaginable horrors, some that are terrifying to children in general. First contact was with the Slender Man, who Kubo desperately tried to fend off, and was nearly captured until intervention from the other high-ranking gods managed to get him out. The 456 Ambassador however joined in as well attempting to kidnap him, but he was able to fare much better compared to the Slender Man, able to defeat him with ease. The same cannot be said following Balanar's entrance and moreso Pennywise, who barged into his temple, one to haunt him in the night and the other to simply eat him. That was when he decided to call for help so that he does not have to deal with these threats alone.
  • One of the very few "special" kids, in a sense that he has otherworldly powers even for such a young age. For all his fragility is made up for his affinity with magic, especially on origami, via the instrumental shamisen he carries with him. He uses the shamisen as a controller for the origami to be used in a variety of ways, from weaponizing them to even flight and escape. It is a niche skill and one he excels at confidently so. Due to the Pantheon's freedom of choice, he is able to use the shamisen more often, not just for combat purposes but for showcasing the origami at its fullest beauty.
    • The aforementioned skills with music also helps, as it is the source of all his paper powers, making him an adept musician and a bard. This, alongside his intention to fight for good brought attention to both the Symphogears and the Smile Pretty Cures, further helped by the fact that he is of Japanese origin much like all the members. The difference though is the extent of their musical powers, as Kubo's powers focuses on paper, the Symphogears are based on their own techs and the Pretty Cures is pure magic.
  • It sucks to have a missing eye at birth, but it is worsened if the other eye is also the object of search. This was his thought when he encountered the Moon King, who wanted his other eye to give him a spot into the Moon Kingdom, as he has a disdain for humanity in general and Kubo's humanity was the only thing from giving him that opportunity. But with courage and The Power of Love, he saved his own eye and life, at the cost of his parents' own.
    • This lead him to being sympathetic towards others who have been blind or those with eyes even removed like his, regardless of alignment. He believes everyone should at least have good vision in life, both in a literal and a metaphorical mindset and no one should suffer having one or both eyes gone. He believes this will help people clearly see their wrongs, much like the fate of his grandfather.
  • Other warriors from different paths have noticed Kubo's skills on paper combat and his affinity with music, citing him to be an endearing warrior even though he has said he only does this on self-defense. Among those who took a liking to him was Samurai Jack, appreciated the young storyteller's presence as the two's similar upbringing as a samurai's child and his conflicts with godlike beings brought them together. His relationship with Ashi also helps as she is proof that there is something good that can be redeemed in the darkness.
    • Unfortunately this lead to encounters with Jack's archnemesis, Aku, who despises his presence. For being a child, he considers him to be Jack's child equal and considers him foolish for all the same reasons he hates Jack. Then when he heard of how he fiercely opposed the Moon Kingdom and his path to godhood, he despised him even more and has told the rest of the Daughters of Aku to hunt him down, to give the child a lesson when it comes to facing the dangers of evil.
    • Another warrior also caught Kubo's attention and awe, seeing that it was Link, the legendary hero of Hyrule. Considering the numerous incarnations of him, various skills, a large arsenal of weapons, and so much heroic tales about him, he speaks of how he is enthralled at his tales, moreso as his combat style of similar to that of his father. The latter gave him a pat to the head to appreciate his awe on him as well as introduce him to the kingdom of Hyrule.
  • Outside of origami combat, there is an interesting part of Kubo differentiates him from other children. For one, he is of godly descent, a child of the Moon Goddess, meaning he has relations to the moon. This brought itself problems, as while he was a godly descendant, he was a regular mortal, thus resulting to his left eye taken out by his grandfather and the relentless search to remove his humanity to join their 'heaven' as opposed to the 'hell' that is humanity, starting by being hunted by his loyal Sisters. While he may be a demigod by Pantheon standards, he wishes not to be called a god due to these events, and moreso relate to anything to the Moon, especially the evil ones.
    • While not related to the moon at all, he has taken precaution when it comes to Lord Voldemort, he reminds him of his grandfather from his inability to comprehend certain values, to his possession of dark magic. His crimes in Hogwarts has also gone unnoticed and only further solidified his opposition on him. There are hints that he also opposes him in another way.
    • Remember when having similar names can be a problem? Well that also counts for the people named 'Raiden', as his grandfather was also named Raiden, the mastermind behind his hardships. This also meant anyone named such has been taken with alertness. One Raiden in particular brought his attention on him and while he may not be related to the moon in anyway, the rumors of a Dark Raiden and his loss of powers, becoming a mortal once made him even more cautious.
    • At one point, he even took a suspicious gander at Magikarp, wary at its transformation being akin to a dragon that disturbingly looks like the same dragon used by his grandfather during the final battle. This only worsened with the Red Gyarados it shares the same temple with, which looks much bigger and the evolution to Magikarp. This lead to him avoiding their temple, though many people have told him the Pokemon mean no harm compared to his relative.
    • It wasn't the end for all moon-related issues, as his deity links brought him under the eyes of Chang'e, who was also a human but due to unfortunate circumstance, ended up becoming the sole person to the moon, well according to the legends. When he did meet her however, she was mute and couldn't speak, though he was surprised how despite being a goddess of the moon, she is radically different from the gods in the Moon Kingdom. And she wasn't the only moon goddess. In fact, other maidens, Kaguya, Eirin and Reisen all approached Kubo with interest, specifically on how he is a human with the bloodline from the moon goddess of his world. Despite reasoning why his humanity was more important than his potential of being an actual god, the maidens did not care and were simply just interested on his links to the moon, without a single care of his humanity, giving him flashbacks of his grandfather's indifference towards humans in general.
    • The result of such conversation lead him to become cautious to anyone related to the moon, regardless of alignment. Some consider it too much but others are able to understand why he oppose them, as the flashbacks and memories are something he has not grown accustomed to. He is trying but it is little progress. It is also why attempts by Mirana and Magnolia Arc were not so successful in reconsidering his thoughts. Because the last thing Kubo wants is someone who wants to drag him back to the same scenario again.
    • It got worse following Diana's visit to him, who sought to convince him to rejoin the moon, as well as her interest of the Moon Kingdom. For a moon extremist, this did not bode well for him as she reminds him of the Sisters, his aunts convinced about the moon. Coupled with her insanity and ruthlessness, her presence has made his day already worse.
    • Not all events were doom and gloom however, as he found that even all those moon-based deities, some are willing to help him more than others, proven by the magical girl representative of the moon herself, Sailor Moon. The first sight between the two can be described as a change of heart for the little boy, seeing that her presence has convinced him that some people related to the moon aren't morally questionable people nor are they human hating gods. After talking to her on her experience with it, he can safely say that his perspective on the moon has changed for the better.
    • It got much better when Percy Jackson stepped in, which introduced him a new world filled with the children of the gods of Olympus, all who are demigods and are of godly descent just like him. Now there are questions as to what specific Moon Goddess was Kubo's ancestry from but as far as he can remember, he doesn't remember the name and only remembers the parents who raised him. Percy thinks there may be another god responsible for this and some of his friends have theorized the idea of one of the gods of Olympus (specifically that of the Moon) interfered with his birth. He dismissed those thoughts.
    • After meeting with different gods of varying alignments and interests, he found someone who is nearly similar to his life both a mortal and of celestial origin: Django. While he may be related more on the Sun, he does have connections to the moon as well. The difference is their breeds, Django is a half-human/vampire whereas Kubo is related to a goddess. Though he has sympathy for his brother who has spoken about moonlight's two sides.
  • He has declared an opposition to all things evil as well as its perpetrators and is such one of the daring few to oppose Melkor, which is an insult to the dark lord as a child wishes to oppose him. When he saw his relations to godhood and his origami powers, he only laughed that a mere child would go up against him, but Kubo has experience when it comes to vanquishing evil and will continue his steadfast courage even at the worst Melkor has to offer with the power of music, origami and love.
  • "Pay careful attention to everything you see and hear no matter how unusual it may seem. But please be warned: if you fidget; if you look away; if you forget ANY part of what I tell you, even for an instant, then our hero will surely perish."

    Kung Lao 
Kung Lao, God of Bladed Hats
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kung_lao.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol/Weapon of Choice: His Bladed Hat
  • Theme Song: Wu Shi Academy, Casey Fritz Android, Shaolin Trap Dungeon (Round 2, Final Round), Kung Lao's Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Using His Iconic Hat for Attacks and Fatalities, Masquerading as a Guard, Porting the Name of His Ancestor, Heterosexual Life-Partners With Liu Kang, Heroic Neutrals, Martial Pacifists, Spin Attacks, Offscreen Teleportation, Warrior Monks, Being Tall, Dark, and Handsome
  • Domains: Combat, Weapons, Good
  • Allies:
  • Vitriolic Best Buds With: Rachel Alucard, Thrall
  • Rival: Reptile
  • Enemies: Shao Kahn, Goro, Shang Tsung, Kano, Quan Chi, Shinnok, Mileena, Ermac, Kronika, Geras
  • Odd Friendship: The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
  • Kung Lao is a descendant of the Great Kung Lao, a legendary warrior who originally defeated Shang Tsung and saved Earthrealm only to later die at the hands of Goro. Kung Lao was trained alongside fellow monk and chosen one Liu Kang, which greatly impacted Kung Lao personally as he was a very proud warrior who happens to also want to live up to the name he was given. The main difference he has over his comrade is his ever reliable razor-sharped hat, a rather unorthodox weapon for a monk but an effective one nonetheless. Throwing it has advantages with functions like straight cut, boomerang effect, and even more and that's what personally got him into the pantheon.
  • While he has felt jealousy over Liu Kang, that never really made him doubt his skills and the two have fought together on several occassions, becoming inseperable even if he does resent the idea of being on Liu Kang's shadow. But considering there are dangerous forces out there trying to destroy Earthrealm, he will stop at nothing until they are all dealt with.
  • James Bond is rather impressed with his hat, given the fact that Bond reminds him of Oddjob, a notorious criminal. However, Kung Lao is a good guy, earning Bond's respect.
  • If anything, don't mention to him the way he's portrayed as an overzealous bitter in Shaolin Monks. Value your life if you don't do so.
  • After discovering that Raiden's actions were what caused him alongside with Kitana, Kurtis Stryker, Smoke and Sub-Zero to be enslaved by Quan Chi, he alongside with the aforementioned, severed his ties with him. Unlike the others, he doesn't want to collaborate with Rachel Alucard… and especially Thrall but he gave in after a while and decided to let his ego not get in the way. Once Kronika made her entrance and Raiden finally realized the error of his ways, Kung Lao was happy to work once more with the Thunder God, having seen with his own eyes how far his revenant had fallen. And the prospect of being a god doesn't really bother him but some believe he is bluffing. Liu Kang on the hand actually is considering having Kung Lao be his chosen one after he became the Keeper of Time, starting with his ancestor the Great Kung Lao first. His present counterpart has yet to find out about this development.
  • His hat doesn't only allow Kung Lao to cut down his enemies, he also has the ability to be pseudo-magician and summon rabbits from it. Not all of them are friendly though, he has been able to summon the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog from his hat, which could end badly for his foes. Incidentally, the Killer Rabbit is able to tolerate Kung Lao as long as he provides him with "food" to entertain himself with (and isn't packing Holy Hand Grenades).
  • One time, Kung Lao had his body taken over by Mario and Cappy, who then proceeded to beat the ever living snot out of Sub-Zero. After that incident, all three parties decided to not bring it up outside of Gaming get-togethers.
  • Don't insult his hat.

    Lester/Bullseye 
Lester, God of Weaponized Pens (Bullseye, Benjamin "Dex" Poindexter, Lester Jangles, Leonard McClain, Daredevil, Hawkeye.)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bullseye_6.jpg

  • Domains: Chaos, Domination, Guns, Madness, Money, Evil, Murder.
  • Herald: Lady Bullseye
  • Allies: Wilson Fisk/The Kingpin, Red Skull, Loki, Nu-13, Kotonoha Katsura, Tsukuyomi, Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin, Quentin Beck/Mysterio, Barra cuda, Kano, Gauron (to an extent)
  • Rivals: Jackie Chan
  • Enemies: Elektra, Daredevil, Spider-Man, Batman, Natasha Romanov/Black Widow, Clint Barton/Hawkeye
  • Opposes: Adam Savage and Jamie Hydeman
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Deadpool
  • Admires: Barbatos Goetia
  • Many are known for using all sorts of weapons, especially in the House of Weapons. Only one can make such deadly use out of mundane weaponry. That distinction belongs to Bulleye. The assassin ascended after winning a sharpshooting contest in the House of School, by using nothing but pens and playing cards. The GUAE sees him as a highly prized asset to eliminate targets.
    • No one else has suffered from him as much as Daredevil. It all started from the beginning when he offed Elektra and went on a rampage from there, killing Karen Page and even impersonating as the Man Without Fear for a while. Matt managed to deal sweet revenge when he impersonated Bulleye, leading to a battle of the ages.
    • He's not happy at seeing Elektra in the Pantheon. When the two first met in Weapons, it destroyed the much of the House. Daredevil later came by to break up the fight. Things are more or less at an impasse right now. Elektra has gotten stronger, but is hesitant to fight a guy like him with so many weapons at his disposal.
  • Also enjoys tormenting Daredevil allie Black Widow and almost killed her a number of times. She may have advanced tech at her side, but Bulleye's unpredictability has proven too much to overcome.
  • Was part of Norman Osborn's band of supervillains posing as heroes during Dark Reign. To him, it was a joyous occasion where he got to kill anyone with impunity.
  • His foray into the Dark Avengers pissed off Clint to no end. Angered at Lester for taking the Hawkeye gimmick from him, he made his own costume called Ronin to challenge him. It didn't end well for Clint, especially without his arrows. The two share an animosity ever since.
  • Was also hired by Mysterio for a time. While it seems to be no big deal, that job was the one that got him to kill Karen Page, Daredevil's long-time love interest. To that he is eternally grateful to Mysterio for giving him the opportunity.
  • Had a memorable showdown against Deadpool during his Dark Avengers gig. He thought that the Merc with a Mouth had no chance now that he has actual weapons, but Wade stymied his efforts to kill him every time. Deadpool makes sure to tell the story on how he avoided death that day, to Bullseye's chagrin. With that said, he admits enjoying the hunt and the fact that Deadpool can come back wanting for more. He even attended the merc's funeral.
  • Has awaited a showdown with the Batman, a man he believes he can defeat. While the superhero is notorious for his prep time, Bullseye thinks he could ambush Batman in an advantageous position with lots of deadly toys.
  • Is at an eternal battle with Jackie Chan over the use of weapons. Jackie may well be the only other person in the Pantheon who knows how to use any weapon at his disposal as well as Lester. Bullseye saw an even match when the two fought. The battle used every weapon available in the House of Weapons. Just when it looked like Bullseye would win, Jackie brought out the dreaded ladder. The match ended under a minute after that. Reeling from the loss, Bullseye seeks revenge, first by mastering the use of the ladder.
  • His ability of killing Love Interests have gained favor of the likes of Tsukuyomi and Kotonoha. He is welcome at both their temples at any time.
  • His greatest foe may not be Daredevil at all... but the credibility of his kills. Lester's rage for the Mythbusters is only rivals by that of Daredevil. He laments at every potential kill weapon that was deemed unrealistic, neutering his effectiveness. Even when the show has ended, he swore to give the two and their heralds gruesome deaths. With that said, the Mythbusters have planted many traps around their temple to keep the assassin at bay.
  • Sees Barbatos Goetia's word as the gospel as Bullseye hopes to have the same dreaded reputation as a Hero Killer. While he has killed a number of D-tier heroes and villains and amassed a frightening reputation, he has yet to claim the coveted status.
  • Wishes he could stick around with Gauron long enough for them to become friends. But Gauron has proven to be too psychotic even for him for extended periods of times. His best chance of a teamup is when they are both after the same target. Once the job is done or if they fail, the two part ways.

    May 
May, Goddess of Anchors

    Messala 
Messala, God of Spiked Wheels (Tribune)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/messala.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Four black horses
  • Theme Song: "Marcia Romana"
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (Lawful Neutral in other continuities)
  • Portfolio: Spiked Wheels, Childhood Friends with Ben-Hur, betraying his friend to get back at him and to make himself feared, dying much sooner than his original self
  • Domains: Racing, Betrayal, Pettiness, War, Ancient Rome
  • Allies: Julius Caesar, Mars, Penelope Mouse, Hera, Bowser, Tywin Lannister
  • Enemies: YHVH, Asterix, Obelix, House of Friendship, House of Travel, House of Sports
  • Ambiguous Relationship: Judah Ben-Hur
  • Messala is a Roman militaryman who is childhood friends with the Judean prince Ben-Hur. Feeling slighted after Ben-Hur refused to cooperate with the empire, Messala let him be accused of attempted murder in order to get back at him. He also held his mother and sister captive. Years later, Ben-Hur came back to enact his revenge, and they had a showdown in the form of a chariot race. Messala used a chariot with spikes on its wheels to weed out the competition (yep, totally legal), but against Ben-Hur it backfired, resulting in Messala getting thrown off and trampled, dying shortly after. Since he's considered to have codified the usage of Spiked Wheels, he was awarded a place in the Pantheon under that trope at around the same time that Ben-Hur ascended for Chariot Race.
  • When Ben-Hur walked into his temple, told him he forgave him and that he should repent for his actions and see the Roman Empire for the evil it was, Messala hesitated a little before scoffing and replying that what he still means what he told him the last time they'd spoken: "The race is not over." Ben-Hur doesn't want to give up on him, though he's accepted that chariot racing is the only language the two can speak right now.
  • The Messala in the Pantheon is primarily the '59 version, but he's been made aware of his other selves' fates; one survived the chariot race to become crippled for life and impoverished (he's actually rather happy that this didn't happen to him or it might have impacted his position in the Pantheon), another managed to mend his bond with Ben-Hur. Interestingly, his original self never used the Spiked Wheels he's known for, nor did he cheat in any way. It was Ben-Hur himself who cheated to win. This has served as ammo for Messala to taunt Ben-Hur about getting whitewashed.
    • As for the claims that he is actually in love with Ben-Hur, all he has to say is that, whether it's true or not, it's no one's business. Although if these rumors are true, it would mean that his actions were at least in part those of a scorned lover, which gets him Hera's sympathy.
  • Messala betrayed Ben-Hur, his childhood friend, out of pettiness from Ben-Hur not following his wishes, as well as a desire for power that he believed he'd get if everyone could see how willing he was to send his friend to prison. This blatant dismissal of the value of friendship means that most of the House of Friendship holds him in contempt, except of course for Penelope Mouse, who understands why ambition would be more important than mere friendship.
  • The purpose of Spiked Wheels is precisely to wreck the opponent's vehicles and possibly the opponents themselves, so Messala is much accursed by the House of Travel for being the trope's god, especially the deities of wheeled vehicles and who participate in races. The House of Sports also dislikes him for the blatant cheating and Unnecessary Roughness that never would've been allowed in a real chariot race. Messala argued back that it wasn't considered cheating in his universe, chariot racing is a bloody, high-risk sport by definition and those who fell to his wheels only had their own weakness and lack of preparation to blame. At least the more unscrupulous deities dig his style, like Bowser, who's wondering why he's never thought of putting spikes on the wheels of his kart.
    • Whenever there's a race on the Pantheon's designated racing course where anything goes, the Rainbow Road, Messala will be there, and so will Ben-Hur. On top of his Spiked Wheels, Messala has taken a liking to using Blue Shells, which makes him even more hated.
  • Upon hearing that the father of the Roman Empire, Julius Caesar, was in the Pantheon, he quickly put himself at his service. Caesar is rather in doubt of the integrity of a man who betrayed his friend for the sake of power, though Messala insists it was all for the glory of empire and emperor. Plus, after hearing Messala say things like "the emperor is god on Earth", he has to admit he must be enthusiastically loyal at least to him specifically, so he's accepted him into his ranks. He's just not one of his favorites.
    • His loyalty also extends to Caligula and Nero, but in their case it's more because he feels he has to rather than genuine feeling. Messala doesn't like the notion of being ordered around by a female emperor and he can tell that Caligula is completely off his gourd and unreasonable. But, well, they're still Roman emperors, real gods on Earth, and he has to do his duty as a Tribune. And he can always turn to Caesar for the last word in case the other two are too outrageous.
  • Given that he's aligned with the Roman Empire, Asterix and Obelix don't like him much at all, but they're willing not to not make sport of punching him into the air out of respect for Ben-Hur. Just as long as Messala doesn't act like a conquering Roman general.
  • Like all ancient Romans, he is pretty chummy with Ares when he's in Mars mode and routinely invokes his name for luck. He still scoffs at the power of the Abrahamic god that Ben-Hur's people worship even after he was told He was very much present in the Pantheon, claimng no god was greater than the emperor. YHVH wasn't amused one bit at this blasphemy.
  • He and Tywin Lannister have mutual admiration for each other because of their military prowess, ruthlessness and sense of opportunity.

    Roman Torchwick 
Roman Torchwick, God of Canes (Torchy, Torchic, Dum-Dum)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roman_amity_arena.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: An orange, grinning face.
  • Theme: A collection of short songs
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Domains: Crime, Class
  • Portfolio: Faux Affably Evil, Breakout Villain, working with his enemies for the greater evil, Combat Snark, doing villainy for the hidden villains, Cigar Chomper
  • Allies: Neopolitan, Sundowner, Gray Mann Steven Armstrong, Master Xehanort, Alex DeLarge, Nui Harime, Zoran Lazarevic, Raul Menendez, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat, Reaper, Adam Taurus, Hilda, Hazama
  • Rivals: Marcus Kincaid, Ripper Roo
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Cinder Fall, Raven Branwen
  • Enemies:
  • Evil Counterpart of: Sly Cooper
  • Odd Friendship: The Shredder
  • It was believed that Roman Torchwick was supplying weaponry from the mortal plane to the GUAE through Sundowner. Shawn Spencer was asked if he could use his (fake) psychic powers to lend a hand in an investigation. Turned out Roman was involved, and was put on trial before the Court of Gods. A testimony from Team RWBY (particularly Ruby Rose and Blake Belladonna) acted as the final nail and put Roman under the watch of the GUAG.
    • However, Sundowner saw fit to pull some strings with Senator Armstrong's political influence and get Roman put into the House of Weapons and made an official part of the GUAE. Of course, this clearly upset Team RWBY and they are making sure to keep an eye out for whatever Torchwick is up to.
  • Roman generally doesn't like a lot of other criminals, but will work with them when it suits his interest, hence enabling Sundowner's war profiteering. He also has made a deal with various War criminals and terrorists and sells them the stolen dust that his gang got from Remnant and is currently held in his temple.
    • He also partnered himself with fellow arms dealer Gray Mann. The old man got instantly hooked in the value of Remnant dust and the potential weapons that could be created out of it and instantly hired Torchwick for the job. Roman isn't very thrilled about all of this but he was promised a good check if he complied.
    • Another Arms Dealer worth mentioning would be Marcus Kincaid, who stands as Roman's biggest business rival in the pantheon. The two don't really mind each other's activities, but when it comes to Weapon trafficking, things get serious.
  • He's tried to buy some Platinum Mechs off Varrick, though the latter grew a conscience and elected not to do business with Roman. The two have formed a resentment of each other as a result.
  • Some gods mistake him for Alex Delarge from a distance and Roman actually likes the spirit of the guy, saying he would make the perfect right hand for him. He even handed him a customized cane.
  • Once was challenged for his title by none other than Sly Cooper, with the Racoon believing that Torchwick was no match for his fighting prowess. He actually understimated Torchwick's fighting capabilities and was forced to retreat. Despite being criminals, both Torchwick and Cooper can't stand seeing each other.
    • Speaking of other cane fighters, he was surprised by the ability of Ripper Roo's cane to create explosives and believes it could be the perfect weapon for him. He's planning to steal it from the kangaroo.
  • Roman has seen Princess Peach using a parasol in combat, and was reminded of the weapon of his henchwoman, Neo. Although he thinks that Peach lacks the style and finesse of Neo.
    • But later came across Nui Harime, who would easily pass as her creepy twin sister who can actually speak. He likes to hang out with Nui and considers working with her but her Boss doesn't really trust a goon like him and he isn't interested in the whole Life fibers bussiness.
  • He gets along surprisingly well with The Shredder, given that after their initial appearance, they became popular enough to reappear again.
  • Felicia recently employed his services into increasing the power of her gang. Roman noticed how similar her criminal actions were to his own boss not to mention the outfits they wear.
  • Rumors say that he actually died, eaten alive by a Grimm who caught him by surprise, according to what Ruby witnessed. Others say he actually is hiding somewhere else and is plotting his return. And a third group say that he was captured and sent to prison again, forever.
    • Even then, he is actually is glad that his death means he no longer holds loyalty towards Cinder and he is free to do whatever he wants. Although he really missed Remnant.
    • Though he was surprised that another deity from Remnant also perished the same day he did, Pyrrha Nikos. While they really don't like each other, at least they joke about their being cursed because of their hair color.
  • For reasons relating to his mortal demise, he gets bursts of irrational hatred when he sees a griffon in his sights. The representative Goddess, Gilda, isn't at all amused with this animosity.
    • For another similar reason, he also despises the hell out of Monstro, being Swallowed Whole is not fun at all.
    • The fact that the trigger of Roman's death was extreme negativity in the form of anger and grief that attracted the Grimm caused Aqua to compare him to Lady Tremaine, who also suffered a Karmic Death from a monster attracted to negative emotions (in her case, hatred).
  • Has, to the surprise of many, joined his enemies in a time of mourning for their creator's passing. When asked why, he just goes, "What, I'm not allowed to grieve? I have feelings too, you know." Roman has since paid his respects at his shrine as well.
  • Locus came to his attention due to his "professional" attitudes and having a somewhat similar voice to Roman, leading him to consider hiring the space pirate for a job. Given Locus has since left his immoral ways, a disappointed Roman was forced to abandon the idea.
  • Along with his herald Neo, Roman is attempting some shady endeavours in his off time, such as ice cream that is most definitely not poison, energy drinks that might be biochemical hazards, badly made motorcycles and attorneys specialized in faulty businesses.
    • He was very pleased to see Neo ascend into Pantheon, further increasing his network of allies. And though her, he would also meet Hazama and Hilda. Both Roman and Hazama feel a sense of kinship between them, leading to two to become fast allies. Hazama even offered to help out expanding his trade. Hilda initially offered to have him join Amnesia, but Roman politely declined. Not one to miss out on a potential ally (both of them), they still do business and aid one another when needed.
  • Once he heard news of the ascension of Adam Taurus, the two formed an alliance. However, despite their shared hatred of team RWBY, Roman is wary of Adam's true intention, remembering Adam's extremist views towards humans like himself. But for now, they have a common enemy.
  • "As for me, I'll do what I do best. Lie. Steal. Cheat. And survive!"

  • Opposes: The House of Thieves
  • Keeping your home tidy and clean is tough work. Dirt, hair, dust, and other contaminants builds up quickly. And as if that wasn't bad enough there's always the looming threat of burglary. Not only are these thugs trying to steal valuables but they're also leaving their dirty footprints all over the house. That's both amateurish and rude. What is a person to do in these trying times? Introducing Roombo, the future of cleanliness and house defense. Armed with a strong vacuum and the ability to hack into all sorts of appliances, Roombo will ensure the safety of the owner's belongings. Not even corpses are a much for him as the little guy can turn the bad guys into red chunks for ease of cleanliness. Order one today!
  • Roombo came into the Pantheon when someone brought him along thinking he was just a regular vacuum robot. Starting out, he was just that. Then a bunch of bad guys happened to bust into the premises and Roombo immediately got to work. The owner, however, came back early due to forgetting something and bore witness to Roombo diligently cleaning up all the ludicrous amounts of blood left behind by what remained of the intruders. For his act of bravery, after he was finished cleaning he was brought to the Court of Gods to be evaluated for a divine title. The discussion was quick as they immediately found the perfect trope of Vicious Vac. And so, the little roomba that could continues his services in the Pantheon.
  • If the name and title of his first game wasn't a dead giveaway he's clearly a spoof of John Rambo, but as a roomba. Despite the ridiculousness of it, the shell-shocked veteran actually befriended the robot rather quickly. In the times that Rambo is forced into a violent situation it is said that Roombo may not be too far behind and there may not even be a speck of dirt left when the dust settles.
  • Usually prefers more high-tech places of residence, mainly so he can work much more effectively. Not that he's completely defenseless without them, but they're the crux of his work. That said, the threshold of the home being "high-tech" is actually quite low: Seemingly regular outlets, doors, windows, ceiling fans, refrigerators, and fireplaces are all effective appliances he can utilize. The Pantheon, however, presents much more for Roombo to utilize making him far more dangerous to any ski masked man or woman treading on the wrong home at the wrong time.
  • While Roombo is more often see cleaning households he sometimes accompanies the Aerospace Sanitation Janitors and their heralds during their work hours. Due to their occupation taking them into places where the dust has already been settled Roombo doesn't much of any action when doing so and is really there for extra manpower. He doesn't mind though, he's just happy to clean. They love cleaning so much that they, unlike the Janitor, doesn't mind doing so even in the House of Slaughter. Roombo actually empowers himself by cleaning blood, in fact. The resident gods there don't appreciate him doing that though the times he comes there is very rare.
  • The existence of a House dedicated to Thieves was enough to make Roombo's circuits burn out in anger. It was the burglars that drew first blood by stepping into his place of residence, after all. This is of course ignoring the fact that very few of the gods there have any reason to cross paths of Roombo, the chance of them doing so being closer to zero, and a bunch of them being more than your typical balaclava-wearing thug in black, but Roombo doesn't care. Dirt is dirt and must be cleaned all the same.
  • As someone willing to defend the house he has a lot of respect for Kevin McCallister and Susy Hendrix for having done the same. Roombo has gone on to assist the latter in any other instances of coming face-to-face with other home invaders while the he sees the former as a source of inspiration in setting up traps. Might be because of the lack of hands thing. He can hack into things, has a vacuum, and can apparently hold things, but that's not quite the same.
    • When it comes to home invaders, Roombo finds Paul and Peter to be among the worst of their lot. Mainly for their time-rewinding remote, a trump card of theirs in case if their victims somehow got the upper hand against them. The brothers disregarded Roombo, however, thinking of him as a nuisance and were more preoccupied with tormenting the people he was guarding. Their arrogance would prove costly as he ended up hacking the remote on their person and it ended up on his possession. They eventually got the remote back but circumstances forced them to retreat for now.
  • While they're capers of more fancier establishments than just everyday homes Roombo isn't any less of a fan of the Bonanza Bros. The sentiment is shared when they unexpectedly encountered the killer roomba during one of their heists. Taking place in a rather lavish manse full of armed guards, Roombo was allow to roam the place as he pleased once again. When he saw one of the brothers, Robo, use a door to knock out a guard he hid underneath a cabinet he hacked into that same door and used it against him, knocking him out cold. Roombo then rammed into Mobo and ended up the same. The guards were quick to apprehend the two brothers and send them off to the big house, though not before quickly preventing Roombo from finishing the job. Thanks to a contact they ended up breaking out the next day and will be more careful of seemingly normal appliances the next time around.
  • He crossed paths with some of the Tactical Dolls while they happened to stay at an apartment that Roombo was working at. In that specific group was Tactical Doll G36 and one of her teammates made a quip about her getting into a fight with a roomba again. While she wasn't one for Roombo trying to stick by her those couple of nights she did sort of warm-up to him. Still, even as a combat android she had to admit its drive to defend its owner's household by any means necessary is disturbing.
  • Vacuums and their use against poltergeists go way back, and Luigi is no stranger to using Professor E. Gadd's Poltergust series of vacuums to suck up ghosts. It doesn't sound like much but many a ghost, and even King Boo himself, have been taken down by the Green Thunder thanks to said equipment. While Roombo isn't lacking as a vacuum, he had to admit he hasn't really tackled ghosts like he has. He has expressed desire to upgrade himself to combat intruders that just so happen to be incorporeal for some reason.
  • Upon entering the Axiom, WALL-E ended up meeting a cleaner bot there named M-O. M-O, obsessed with cleaning, couldn't stand all the foreign contaminants WALL-E left behind and ended up chasing him across the entire ship just to properly clean him come hell or high water. After he finally caught him (incidentally saving him and EVE in the process) they soon become friends thereafter. Having heard of this and what WALL-E did on the Axiom Roombo decided that WALL-E is cool. He, at least, isn't plagued by a Super OCD revolving around being tidy so that probably made it even easier for Roombo to accept him and is willing to help him when in trouble. While appreciating the offer, he managed to communicate to him that he has EVE to help him on his travels (though is really more fearful by what the robot is capable of), which Roombo accepted.
    • Hat Kid owns a cleaner robot of her known named Rumbi, and he lives with her on the spaceship and is a dear pal of hers. Roombo, naturally, is quite touched though he's also peeved that Hat Kid had people break into her ship before and made it clear she can request his services. As usual, Hat Kid declined the offer too.
  • While it's more so literal invasions, Roombo is sympathetic to the Plants' cause in the fight against Dr. Zomboss and his zombie goons. In the times Roombo is available to help out the Plants he's moreso the last line of defense considering they all are able to hold the fort down well on their own though there have been points where what would of been a zombie victory has been snatched from their grasp thanks to said bot.

  • Banned from: The House of Childhood and Adolescence
  • Opposed by/Opposes: The rest of the House of Crime
  • The quality of life between a Nest and the Backstreets couldn’t be any more different than night and day. Whereas in a Nest you live under one of the many different Wings and have to work so as to not get booted out your future is, at the very least, secure as befitting the status of someone in the upper echelons of society. The Backstreets, however, is a different matter. These densely spread-out alleyways and shantytowns house all sorts of people looking to make a living. While these parts of the City are ruled by the Hand of the Backstreets alongside lesser Syndicates, Fixers, and local neighborhood watches crime is still rampant as expected of a universe where Hired Guns is as common as common can be.
    • Bad as it is, though, the Backstreets are at their very worst when a “Night in the Backstreets” falls. Running from 3:13 to 4:34 AM in this time period all crimes, no matter how savage or vile, are permitted, and taking evidence and trying to investigate whatever happened there will earn you a one-way ticket to hell courtesy of a Claw. It’s here metallic figures wielding hooks known as Sweepers crawl out of the woodwork to sweep the streets of human trash and any proof that transpired within that time. Like the winds of a hurricane, they’ll tear through anyone unlucky enough to cross their path, and anyone with some sense of self-preservation knows to turn back immediately after seeing their piercing red gaze from the shadows.
  • The Sweepers made their name known in the House of Crime after a family of them crawled up from nowhere and consumed anyone who was out way too late at night for one reason or another. They were quite surprised to find that they were not in the City anymore after having exterminated quite a number of lesser gangs in the House. Due to having disrupted the hierarchy’s intricately connected web it didn’t take long for the House’s authority to try and uproot the threat of them before the problem festered and their combined might allowed them to succeed in doing this… for about two weeks. Then the Sweepers came back with a vengeance after the initial attack by setting up dens in not only that House but also various other Houses as though nothing happened.
  • To the uninitiated, the Sweepers are just a bunch of mindless predators that stalk the night. People who think this way don’t last very long for this kind of ignorance gets you hacked apart by Sweepers. It’s said that their biggest strength is organizational power being able to hunt in packs and coordinate their movement even in the labyrinthine Backstreet’s alleyways. In fact, they even have a proper language consisting of a string of numbers and upon translation (assuming it isn’t amateurish) they’re actually quite talkative, eloquent, and polite. The last point is especially prominent with how Sweepers care for each other, including the Mothers that lead their families. In fact, they actually ascended themselves when the first family responsible for the initial attack told their neighbors of the Pantheon leading to them moving in and their Mother finalized the decision. And speaking of, they’re vocal on how truly foreign the Pantheon is to them such as for example being able to hold actual coherent conversations with people or the ubiquity of firearms as from their world they’re, for a number of different reasons, impractical against actually competent opponents.
  • The technology to be turned into a Sweeper is patented by the Heads of the World, who leads the rest of the Wings and serves as the governing body of the City. Between the Head’s general cruelty, the existence of the Night in the Backstreets, and the name “Sweepers”, it doesn’t take very long to realize they exist to further cull the population of human trash. Due to this, some gods have gone on to accuse the many dictators in the Pantheon of having a hand in their ascension although if one by chance asks a Sweeper personally they claim that such points are baseless: While not necessarily the Head’s direct underlings, they answer only to them and them alone.
  • As a result of the aforementioned attack, they’re largely unpopular with many of the House of Crime’s residents and have bolstered their forces in case of future attacks at night, at least when concerning their operations. Apparently, Sweepers have the decency to leave the more residential areas alone for that is a Taboo of the City, something that can’t be broken even with the Night of the Backstreets in play. While some have taken to adapt to it by having the Sweepers serve as an incentive to not continually fail your superiors, there have been those who have pushed back against the Sweepers encroaching on their grounds and giving a reality check on their dominance in the night. The vigilante speedster Godspeed easily executed quite a number of Sweeper dens after one family tried pushing onto the House’s red-light district. Gunvolt, after looking into some disappearances for an ally of his, also cut down on their numbers upon finding out it was their doing. As far as more organized crime goes, they’ve also been hard by the 3rd Street Saints’ Leader as well as Bucciarati’s Gang when their numbers started to grow once more. Giorno and Bucciarati are especially appalled at the fact they literally exist to Kill the Poor and other undesirables.
  • Cybernetics and body augmentation is a common procedure within the City, and the Sweepers fall under the more extreme side of it. Essentially, they’re liquid flesh encased and held together by the dark metal suit. If they run out, they die. To survive, they use their large red hooks to dig into people and liquify them to refuel themselves. This, combined with their persistence to where they can reportedly revive themselves, makes them tough to put down. Luckily, they mainly move at night unless prompted by the Head or other special circumstances.
  • Screwed up as the City is, cannibalism is still seen as repulsive though this hasn’t stopped the practice as evidenced by the existence of multiple cannibal syndicates and other such butchers. In fact, the Backstreets of District 23 is the worst offender compared to everywhere else with groups such as The Eight Chefs seeking to pursue the ultimate flavor by any means necessary. With that said, sharing the same taste doesn’t necessarily make one friends with the Sweepers as shown with the dispute between the ones in Nest L and strange, cannibalistic tailors The Carnival. The former even describes the latter as “despicable filth”. The trend runs true in the Pantheon as they clash with other maneaters like those in Flesh Eaters and are defensive of the territory they control in the House of Slaughter. Even Hannibal Lecter, while noting their manners, knows it is more trouble than it is worth to try and deal with them.
  • While alliances aren’t that common for Sweepers some families have started working with Specimen 11. Sometimes, groups of their own can be seen accompanying the Food Demon, an unfortunate sight to anyone being chased down by it. Whether they’re under the spell of its “beef” or they simply took the advantageous opportunity to dine with their families easier no one can really say but it’s a fearsome sight nonetheless. While still on the topic of alliances there have reports of Dark Brotherhood members conversing with Sweepers after delivering some of their kills to them, most likely to dispose of their trace should it be requested. Consider it as a testament to how far-reaching the Dark Brotherhood’s influence goes behind the scenes to have some sort of agreement with monstrous cannibals like them.
  • Given their rising presence in the Pantheon, some of those in the Allies’ forces had assumed the Sweepers were apart of the Nazis, like some variant of the Nazi Storm Elites. They’re not and are otherwise completely unrelatednote . They only really get to fight them in urban areas, but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous despite to come across despite only wielding large hooks. Lt. Randall and Sgt. Bill Taylor, as well as Waffen Storm Leaders and Storm Elites, can attest to this being the first to encounter them. Cpl. Boyd Travers is reminded of the times he faced gas mask-wearing enemies in urban warfare such as the aforementioned Storm Elite. While he’s mainly preoccupied with the Nazi war machine, he doesn’t tolerate the Sweepers trying to feast upon his comrades.
  • Implacable, numerous, decked out in full cybernetic bodies, and very much organized, there’s little wonder as to why they’re universally feared. Children probably have the biggest reason to fear them out of everyone. Either they kill them like they do with everyone else or “accompany” them, which is a nice term for a Sweeper kidnapping them and turning them into another Sweeper where they would be nurtured by their Mother. Due to this, the Sweepers were added to the ever-expanding list of deities barred from the House of Childhood and Adolescence as if it wasn’t big enough already. With all the security and surveillance Sweepers don’t even bother approaching the House to begin with as they’re more comfortable on the outskirts between the different houses. Still, you could never be too careful.
    • Some believe that the Sweepers share some solidarity with other deities who go after children. While a reasonable enough assumption on paper, the truth is that no such unity is a given just because of that. Sweepers do have their own families which would, after all, include children as well dubious context behind their conception aside. They view with 456 Ambassador, the Coachman, and SCP-993 with the same amount of disdain as anyone else and warn the younger members of their depravity. The hatred for the latter is quite strange since him teaching young Sweepers about cannibalism and murder… wouldn’t really change much. Though, perhaps they’re wary of the clown poisoning their values of love and family that is present in all Sweepers.
  • Valerie: "The Backstreets are our main stage of activity at night. When night falls, our world unfolds. At regular intervals, we start marching from the perimeter of a Nest and sweep everything as we move forward."

  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Attraction from Cosmic Beings, Using Forks to Defend Himself, Nice Guy With Surprising Skills, Only Sane Man, Unfazed Everyman, Brutal Honesty, Tsundere, Inability to Confess His Love Due of Nyarko's Behaviour
  • Domains: Love, Weapons, Niceness, Tsundere
  • Allies: Nyarko, Hasta, Cuuko Yoriko Yasaka (his mother), Shantak-kun, Luhy Distone, Ato-ko Shirogane, Keima Katsuragi (?), Tenchi Masaki, Almaz, Hyodo Issei (so and so), Gray Fullbuster
  • Enemies: The OTHER Nyarlathotep, Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa, any one who malign Cthulhu Mythos, Fuminori Sakisaka
  • Former Enemies: Mitsuzane Kureshima (for bringing out Nyarko's dark side)
  • Ascended with Nyarko, who practically dragged him in. There was no way she would ascend without her sweetheart. She even endured his forks for it, though Mahiro might have not minded it ultimately.
  • Aside of Nyarko (a.k.a. Nyarlathotep, The Crawling Chaos), he also has Hasta (a.k.a. Hastur, The Unspeakable One) and eventually Cuuko (a.k.a. Cthugha, The Burning One) after his love in different ways. Oh, and there are other aliens who want him. They find him attractive for whatever reason.
  • Do not underestimate his fork. The fork is the strongest weapon in the universe (or so he claims). After all, he can keep three Lovecraftian deities in check with one.
    • Aside of stabbing people with it, he also has a good aim with them. He was once able to a triple 300 on a dartboard using forks, which even made Bullseye slightly impressed.
  • He has gotten some help from people from House of Love, mainly Keima Katsuragi, to help him overcome his inability to confess his feelings. He really doesn't like the help, especially if it involves Dating Sims. He had enough of them after being stuck in one.
  • Malign Cthulhu Mythos around him at your own risk. He is a huge fan of those works and will stab the person who malign them with a fork. However, he hasn't gathered enough courage to talk to the man behind the writings himself, even though he has the chance to do so.
  • He might seem normal, but he actually has one supernatural ability on him: the ability to not be affected by shifts on time-space continuum. GUAG wishes to have him use this ability to assist them, due of him being rather low profile, but Mahiro himself doesn't like to be dragged into things like this. He can also resist the effects of seeing creature's true form more easily, though whenever or not this is an actual ability or he has simply gotten used to it is in question.
  • Really only friends with Issei due the fact that he needed to be the voice of reason for Cuuko regarding the accident between the two of them. He doesn't hate him, but he doesn't talk to him that much.
  • Sort of the de facto leader for Special Lovers Squad's "Love Interest" portion, but due the fact that its not even a proper group, it is just a silly title. Though it did make him befriend Almaz due of feeling like they aren't that different regarding their adventures and Gray due the fact that Nyarko and Juvia are rather similar.
  • He is sort of confused on how many goddesses sound like her mother, Yoriko, like Belldandy.
  • Officially dropped the "Unwanted Love" part of his title after he himself kissed Nyarko in the lips after she said she loves him. And then he did it again. And then was sort of fine Nyarko kissing him the next day. The House of Love went "FINALLY!" in unison. Their only concern now is the fact that this development was due of Ato-ko so that she can break their relationship one day...
    • As it turns out, Mahiro did end up marrying Nyarko... and more or less losing his SAN Points right after the wedding. Fortunately for Mahiro, the two of them aren't married in the Pantheon due of some adaption problems and only he remembers it, though he is considering that if he did decide on that, maybe he should make it official... while making sure he doesn't regret his decision this time.

  • Rivals: Frank West, Peter Parker
  • Enemies: Most evil-aligned deities from the House of School.
  • Opposed by: Gods who hates paparazzis, Leena Toros, Homer Simpson
  • Annoyed by: Dan Hibiki
  • A student from Taiyo High which is working toward a career in journalism, she ascended in the Pantheon after getting a big scoop about the mysterious kidnapping of the students, and helping the Chainperson and Pacific High School students to find Kurow and his cronies.
    • She was happy to see her classmate Batsu, as well as his rival Roy (which also helped her in one of her investigations) once again. Now it's just a matter of time for the other Taiyo High students (Hinata, Kyosuke and Chairperson), as well as her teacher Hayato ascend.
    • Ran also met up with another students from her universe: Natsu from Gorin High, Daigo from Gedo High, as well as fellow students Yurika Kirishima and Momo Karuizawa, her former enemies.
  • Ran's skills with her camera are formidable, even though she still have to reload it a lot of times. She also fights with paper fans and books. Yeah, her combat style is that weird.
  • One of her hobbies is to take photos of the Pantheon members and their domains. Which also includes evil ones, unsurprisingly. Unfortunately, there's some places that she can't go, given that even that she is now a goddess, she is still a human.
    • Ran's amazing photography skills make her rivals with fellow photographers Frank West (she was a follower of him previously) and Peter Parker. It's unknown if she knowns the latter's secret identity.
    • She called the attention of Terra because one of her followers is her friend Edgar. And much like Ran, he fights with a lot of gadgets (Albeit not books or paper fans like she expected).
  • During one of her big scoops, she met up with The Saber Marionettes. One of them, Bloodberry, also happens to sounds like her. In retribuition, Ran take some photos of Bloodberry as well as the other marionettes.
    • In another of her scoops, she interviews the Blitz Team. During the interviews, Leena noticed that Ran sounded similar to Harry's sister Mary Champ. Doesn't help that Ran also liked the Liger Zero, going so far as to calling the Liger Zero "my cute little snowflake" and taking some photos of him. Leena was not amused and tried to shoo her a lot of times.
    • She also meet Van and Fiona, thanks for the rumors that Bit could or could not be their descendant. During the interview, she also noticed his Blade Liger, calling him "my cute little skyflake". Unlike Leena, Fiona seems to like Ran.
  • When she was in a scoop in the House of War (don't ask why), she found Ryoma, thinking that he was her PE teacher Hayato Nekketsu. It doesn't help that he and Hayato look similar. Ran also have a similar problem with Haohmaru.
    • Went to the House of Weapons after discovering about a swordsman named Hayato, which she thinks that he is her PE teacher. Unfortunately for her, he was a different Hayato. On the other hand, Hayato's skill with his plasma sword is just as good as the Taiyo High PE Teacher's kendo skills. Also met up with his girlfriend June, and take some photos of the her gymnastic skills.
    • Going to the House of Sports, she interviewed Uzu Sanageyama about his kendo skills. During the interviews, Ran noticed that Sanageyama sounded similar to her classmate Batsu. Well, speaking of him, he once had a fight with Ryuko, motivating Ran to interview the rebellious female student.
  • Ran has a great admiration for Athena Asamiya, given that she remind her of the Chainperson, likely in appearance. In fact, she wishes one day take some photos of Athena in an official concert.
  • Plans to create a group of jornalism in a distant future.
  • Homer Simpson is not found of her, given that every time that he does something funny or weird, she always take some photos of him, not helped by the fact that some of the photos are also titled "Local Man Ruins Everything". It's a Running Gag in the Pantheon.
  • No relation to Dan Hibiki, although there's rumors and speculations that Ran is his sister. Ran also recognizes Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryu, which is the same style of the Chainperson of Taiyo High.
    • While Ran is most annoyed by Dan, she at least have a good view of his friend Sakura. That's because Ran recognized her as one of the students of Tamagawa Minami High School.
    • Confused Ibuki with one of her classmates given that Ibuki's school outfit is similar of a Taiyo High student one. She didn't care, but liked the remark.
