Pantheon / Weapons

Go To

The House of Weapons. Better known to some as "The Pantheon's Largest Armory."

Created in the wake of the ever-growing population of weapon-based War Gods (including several ones), the House of Weapons is one to be feared. Nearly every wall is lined with swords, axes, boomerangs, and anything that wouldn't make any sense in the real world, but exists solely because of the Rule of Cool.

The house itself is fairly accessible and looks more like a series of sturdy barracks built around a central square than anything else, surrounded with large sparring grounds, multiple target lines, forests of millenary trees and other kinds of training areas used for testing and honing one's mastery.


A huge forge has been built at the center of all the sub-houses, with direct access to the House of Craft whose blacksmiths come to mould and repair the weapons, along with specialized woodworkers.

The House is guarded by the Three Weaponmasters whose rules are quite cut-and-dry: sparring and testing only. Breaking this rule may lead to the guilty sub-house's resources be cut for a while.

Due to the growing number of deities in this House, the Gods have decided to split it into the following sub-houses:

The Three Weapon Masters

The Guards of the House of Weapons, they keep all the deities in this house in check.

    Cloud Strife 
Cloud Strife, God of Giant Swords (Spiky, the SOLDIER, Chocobo Head, the Buster Basher, SOLDIER 1st Class, Thunderhead, Guardian of the Lifestream (And Orphans), Blonde Zack, Croudo-kun, Ms. Cloud)

    Jackie Chan 
Jackie Chan, God of Improvised Weaponry (Chan Kong-sang)
Click to see his cartoon avatar 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His face.
  • Theme Music: Drunken Gods (from Drunken Master), Jackie Chan Adventures Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Weapon of Choice: Whatever is around him.
  • Portfolio: Martial Arts Movie, Improvised Weapons, Hong Kong, Slapstick, Crossdressing, Losing Until He Wins
  • Domains: War, Luck, Improv
  • Allies: Doctor Wong Fei-Hung, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Kevin McCallister, Jade and Tohru
  • Chan, like Despair of the Endless, is always having a "bad day".
  • Appeared outside the House of Weapons shouting "JAAADDDEE!" which the gods initially thought meant an immortality potion. Turned out it was his niece messing with magic again. He nearly fainted when he found out his niece, and Tohru, ascended. He slightly calmed down when he learned that the two were in the Friendship House, though... then, he found out how Uncle got into the Pantheon...
  • Sometimes is shown doing archeology work. When this happens he's prone to taking something from the gods, saying, "I'm sorry, I'll bring this back! Thank you!"
  • A common agreement among the gods is that if Jackie can pick it up (it being anything you can think of), he can, and will—should the need arise—kick your ass with it.
  • Has a friendly rivalry with Kevin McCallister, and regularly challenges to defeat his improvised and fiendishly rigged booby traps. So far, the conflict has consistently been fought to a draw.
  • Despite his stance of using anything as a weapon, even he is amazed at how Deadpool can whack people to death with the HUD.
  • Was freaking out over the Friendship Asylum due to Jade being a goddess there. He has convinced her for once to not be a hero because the last thing he needs is her corrupted. Tohru has agreed to keep an eye on Jade just in case. Jackie, himself, would like not to be involved with the asylum (for fear that his skills could be used for the asylum rather than against it) but if need be, he'll help bring any escapees into the GUAG Medical Division.

    Vash the Stampede 
Vash the Stampede, God of Marksmanship (The Humanoid Typhoon, The $$60,000,000,000 Man, "Valentinez Alkalinella Xifax Sicidabohertz Gumbigobella Blue Stradivari Talentrent Pierre Andry Charton-Haymoss Ivanovici Baldeus George Doitzel Kaiser III")
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Silver Revolver crossing his glasses over a red bullet-shaped field.
  • Theme Music: H.T.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Improbable Marksmanship, Obfuscating Stupidity, Walking the Earth, Technical Pacifism, Red-Wearing Men
  • Domains: Peace, Travel, Gunslinging, Destruction (although Vash has this as one of his domains, it is frowned upon), Trickery
  • Followers: Train Heartnet, Kirika Yuumura, Irvine Kinneas, Captain Piper Faraday and crew, any protagonist in a John Woo movie...ever.
  • Rivals: Lucky Luke
  • Allies: Rushuna Tendou, Lockon Stratos, Madlax, Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Haruto Sohma, Yuna, Switzerland, SCP-516, Guts
  • The other gods were impressed with his skills after watching him shoot both wings off a fly... at 100 meters... with a single bullet... from a revolver. Vash immediately felt bad for the fly and got Lenneth to restore it.
  • Within the space of a few seconds during a friendly challenge, Rushuna could have blasted the gun out of his hand three times, while he groped her five times. She didn't mind.
  • Status for God of Marksmanship was briefly contested by Revolver Ocelot, though Ocelot eventually conceded the match, having gotten a better offer elsewhere.
  • He gets well along with Haruto Sohma of the Toku Base as they share their appetite for donuts in the House of Food.
  • Ever since Lucky Luke's ascension, Vash has found himself a rival in Lucky Luke's physics-defying trick-shots. While he retains the godhood for marksmanship, he has ceded that Luke's faster on the draw.
  • His (false) full name is stupidly long.
  • Vash is often at odds with various swordsmen such as Guts, Zoro and Haohmaru due to his high position in the Pantheon and the fact that most of them consider swordsmanship superior to marksmanship. Thus, he is often challenged to prove that his position is well-earned, which Vash doesn't mind as it's a good workout.
