Pantheon / Wind & Air

Go To

This is one of the more unique locations in the House of Nature, as the lands of Wind and Air are not on the ground, but in the skies. Above floats a massive mass of clouds capable of carrying the weight of even giants. On top of the divine clouds lie multiple temples, with a select few made out of clouds. Getting to the lands of the Wind and Air can be a problem for those who lack the ability to fly and those who can't bypass the tornado elementals which guard them. However, those who do get to the clouds will find them relaxing and comfortable, and will likely be able to return to the ground easily if they ask one of the gods living on the clouds if they can help them. With all done and said, the lands of Wind and Air are one of the nicer locations within the House of Nature.

  • Portfolio: The elemental Lord of Wind and Air, Affably Evil, Able to Manipulate Ice and Electric powers, Physical God, The Tactician of the Old Gods, Wields a Scimitar
  • Domains: Wind, Air, Elemental Powers, Tactics

  • Rivals: Ragnaros the Firelord, Chaac
  • Enemies: Alexstrasza, Ysera, John Egbert, Nao Midorikawa, Altaria, Smoke, Aang, Korra, Aladdin, The Genie, Hoopa, The Tactician, Robin, Link, Zelda
  • Opposed by: The House of Insects, Thor, Most of the Ascended Olympians
  • Special Relationships: Thrall
  • Interested in: Yasuo, Carl the Invoker and most deities with good control over Wind.
  • Al'Akir the Windlord, the most powerful Air elemental in all of Azeroth appeared on the House of Wind and Air, trying to claim it as his domain. Of course, he found resistance with the residents of said house, but the Elemental Lord refused to give up. He was finally calmed down after a while given the intervention of various Nature gods, and eventually was given the title of Tornadoes for how devastated state he left his house.
  • The main reason why he ascended in the first place has to do with his superiors, The Old Gods, wanting him in. The reason those creatures want him in the first place is not clear, but they did succeed in granting him a place to stay. Although the GUAG surely thinks that nothing good will come out of this.
    • Although many question the real danger of his Tornadoes or the fact that he is a giant Air Elemental (A.K.A. a big Tornado) yet not being capable of harming others.
  • Shortly after ascending, he announced himself as the Self-Proclaimed rules of the House of Wind and Air, which didn't sit well with the other ascended Gods of the same house. Plus, they can't stand how loud he is.
    • The only one that seems to tolerate him is Wamuu, but only because he is only interested the Windlord army as a mean to fight powerful foes. Al'Akir wholeheartedly accepted him among his ranks and is very impressed with his Wind control.
  • Oficially considered the Weakest Elemental Lord And the other three won't let him forget that. This is a pretty sensitive subject so approach it with care if you don't want to get Blown by his strong winds.
    • As a result, he decided to show off his powers to prove them that he is not weak at all. He ended up targeting Liezerota of all people, given her fragile looks, just to cause some trouble. Unfortunately, not only she was left unharmed, (Lieze has a rare resistance to wind, something that is related to the place she lives), but she kindly offered him some curry if he wanted. Embarrased, he shutted himself in his temple for about 3 weeks with a big sign that said:
    • He got better after a while, since he unleashed his wrath on the House of Insects, leaving most of it members devastated. Like his fellow Elemental Lord, he was also banned from entering. He really doesn't mind, as he had a lot of fun doing that. In his own words:
  • Surprisingly on good terms with the World Shaman, Thrall. The reason of this friendship is not entirely clear, but when the orc goes to relax in a certain Inn, he becomes one of his entrusted servants. What surprises him is that his fellow Elemental Lord of Water, Neptulon the Tidehunter, seems to do this as well.
    • He will also gladly act as a summon if a person has a good control over Airbending. While he is much more manageable than his Fiery counterpart, the only Drawback is that you have to be a Shaman. He hasn't been lucky so far.
  • Surprisingly formed an alliance with Airbender Zaheer who found common ground on their Chaotic Nature. The Windlord offered himself as a special summon if he joined his forces, which the latter wholeheartedly agreed. This obviously didn't sit well with both Aang and Korra, as they have set their eyes on the Elemental Lord of Air in case things get out of control.
  • Among the Old Gods ranks, he is considered the Tactician of their Army, even though he isn't frequently seen doing the planning. This made him enemies with The Tactician, given the Windlord's reckless and destructive bahaviour and how many perish under his command, a fact The Tactician considers Taboo.
  • Confused both The Genie and Hoopa with his own servants, the Djinnies. The two genies don't really want to serve the Windlord, given to who he responds for. He has surprisingly taken this fairly well, but rumors say that he plans to unleash Hoopa Unbound to make it his Champion, which didn't sit well with The Genie and Hoopa.
  • His wind control also makes him able to manipulate Ice and Storm at will, claiming that Frost Mages and Shamans are able to cast Ice Magic thanks to him. He also made rivals of Chaac, given how he is also able to create Rain as well, although Chaac is not very fond of his destructive nature.
  • Rules over Skywall, where the Air elemental are confined. Given his position as the Top Air Elemental, he also believes to be the rightful owner of every floating city. This has earned the the ire of both Link and Zelda (Whose past lives used to live on a Floating City) and most Olympians.

  • Gender: Male
  • Abilities: Prankster (Tornadus and Thundurus' Incarnate Form), Regenerator (Tornadus' Therian Form), Volt Absorb (Thundurus' Therian Form), Sand Force (Landorus' Incarnate Form), Intimidate (Landorus' Therian Form)

  • Portfolio: Flying on a Cloud, Fog Feet, Resembling Each Other A Lot Until They Go Therian Form, One-Gender Race, Oni, Legendary Flying Pokemon, Badass Mustache
  • Domains: Weather, Flight, Kamis (all three), Trickery, Chaos (Tornadus and Thundurus), Cyclones (Tornadus), Lightning (Thundurus), Fertility, Protection, Responsibility (Landorus)
  • Followers: Secret, Bloody Bridget, Rushu
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Chaac, Yuugi Hoshiguma
  • Rivals: Whammu (Tornadus), friendly), Eneru (Thundurus)
  • Enemies: Ghetsis Harmonia, Giovanni
  • Opposes: Cryomancers (especially Landorus)
  • One of the legendary groups of Pokemon in the Unova region are three genie-looking beings, known as the Forces of Nature. Based off kami, these Pokemon are forces who can control the weather. Tornadus and Thundurus use it to cause mischief, while Landorus helps with crops and is a force of fertility. Through the Reveal Glass, they take a more divergent Therian Form.
  • Applies to all three:
    • The Forces of Nature are supported by clouds, which they still retain some elements of it in their Therian Form. Along with resembling genies, they are also based on oni. The three seem to be friendly towards Yuugi Hoshiguma, a more obvious oni, though Landorus is a lot more cordial than his brothers.
    • As bringers of storms and rain, they seem to appreciate Chaac for being a fellow weather deity. Again, Landorus is the more polite of the three in interactions with Chaac. All of them would rather stay away from any ice-using deity, since they all share a weakness to Ice type attacks. Especially Landorus.
  • Applies to Tornadus and/or Thundurus:
    • Tornadus and Thundurus are the two trouble makers of the Forces of Nature, who like to cause weather problems for no real reason. Not truly malicious, but certainly troublesome. They're also Trickster Twins who are rarely seen apart. They seem to be fond of the Weasley twins for their bond, and the pranks they pull off.
    • Tornadus and Thundurus got along with Beerus, as they like his laidback nature. Also, like them he was an example of Jerkass Gods. However their jerkishness has limits. While they initially though Bill Cipher's Weirdmageddon would be a fun party, it proved too destructive and evil for them.
    • Tornadus is known as the Cyclone Pokemon, and is capable of zooming around the sky in 200 mph. He is the member of the Forces of Nature that spends the most time in his main house. As a bringer of storms, Tornadus felt a kindred spirit in Al'Akir and they became partners. He has a friendly rivalry with Whammu over who can better weaponize wind.
    • Thundurus is the Bolt Strike Pokemon, who shoots lightning all over the place. This causes forest fires that lead him to be disliked. Given his temperament and thunder power, he gravitated to Zeus. Seems to be fond of Sparky when he's in a good mood as well. Thundurus has a rivalry with Eneru, who claims to be the real god of lightning.
  • Applies to Landorus
    • Landorus is known as the Abundance Pokemon, as lands visited by him grow bountiful harvests. For this reason Landorus is a close ally of the Nature Preservers. Smokey the Bear soon partnered up with Landorus due to the Pokemon helping restore damage from forest fires, thanks to his typing and experience in cleaning up Thundurus' mess. He was considering Viridi as a partner due to being a nature spirit and guardian, but she was already taken. Though they still like each other a lot because of that.
    • The Only Sane Man of the Forces Of Nature, who reins in and punishes Tornadus and Thundurus when they misbehave. Landorus ended up getting a shrine for that. Rayquaza saw the similarities between the two and they soon became friends. Landorus ended up getting along with Ra and Quetzacoatl since they're benevolent caretaker gods with some concern for the environment.
    • Opposes the GUAD as their desire for destruction is antithetical to Landorus' role as a guardian spirit of nature. He isn't fond of Set, due to using desert storms for evil purposes compared to Landorus who benefits from sandstorms. Being a sort of guardian of nature, Landorus finds the Spring Sprite to be a great help in giving lands abundance once more.

  • He has shown to be honorable in fights, making sure that his opponents will fight him as expected and will not flat out cheat and on equal ground.
  • Though that is not to say that he will never adapt to those that try to be abuse his honor.
  • Those that try to exploit it by running away will be hit with poison so that they must fight him for an antidote rather then try and run away.

  • He does not come out during the day as he is not immune to The Sun like his master, though found a way to make himself invisible to shield himself from the Sun for a short amount of time.
  • Refuses to work with Nazis because of Stroheim's attempts to stop them for becoming perfect life forms.
  • Was the first to introduce The Pantheon to The Pillar Men claiming "Awaken My Masters!".


Lesser Gods

Altaria, Goddess of Unusual Clouds (The Humming Pokémon, Altareon, Altair)
Mega Altaria 

    Nao Midorikawa/Cure March 
Nao Midorikawa, Goddess of the Green Wind (Cure March, April, Glitter Spring)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Smile Pretty Cure Symbol and the March Cure Decor. Alternatively, a soccer ball cover in wind
  • Theme Song: Always With Smile
  • Alignment: Neutral Good

  • Enemies: All evil aligned Gods and Goddess, especially those that harm families
  • Afraid of: All ascended bug and ghost deities
  • Odd Friendship: Ragna the Bloodedge, Mako Reizi, Alice the 16th, Laura Bodewig
  • Being a Pretty Cure, high chance the color of your battle outfit will determined your elemental power, and for Nao Midorikawa, that color is green and element of wind. But its not her Cure uniform that is green, but also her eyes, hair, her school uniform, and even parts of her name means green. However, her element over wind is limited to her Finishing Move March Shooter which conjures up a ball made out of wind which she can kick. Of course that doesn't matter when you can create over hundreds of wind balls and barrage your enemies into submission. And if that isn't enough, theirs her big upgrade Finishing Move, March Shooter Impact which has her spinning herself like a tornado and collecting wind energy and kicking her enemies straight up.
  • Had a tearful happy reunion with Miyuki, Reika and Yayoi. They are now waiting patiently for the ascension of Akane.
  • Is afraid of a handful of things, such as bugs, ghosts, and heights. She has found common ground with Ragna, Mako and Alice due to their shared fear of the second thing.
    • Nao also likes to avoid the Insects sub-house in Beast as well. Unfortunately, it seems some of the insects always find her some how and goes screaming in fear.
  • She is very protective of her family and harming them is a bad idea. Naturally, she was upset to hear that there have been a handful of deities who go against the very idea of family. She has allied herself with deities such as Yu Narukami to ensure the safety of good family in the Pantheon.
  • She was surprised to hear that she sounds like Yoko Littner, Laura Bodewig, and Minako Arisato. She gets along rather well with the three.
  • She is noted to be a capable cook according to the House of Food. In addition, she also has a pretty notable appetite.
  • She likes to play soccer and is often seen with Tsubasa Oozora practicing the sport.
    • Unfortunately, this has earned her the animosity of Kogane/Kamen Rider Mars as the latter is known to dislike sports in any form, especially soccer.
    • Worse yet, as she is part of the girls soccer team in the House of Sports, this has made her a target of Monokuma's possible Pantheonic School Life of Mutual Killing. She has become wary of the bear and his mastermind because of this.
  • She is the oldest out of seven siblings. While no one really knows who exactly are those seven siblings, it is clear that she cares about them.
    • This makes her good friends with both Yozakura and Yayoi Takasuki, both who also have multiple siblings. Nao was in tears when she heard about how Yozakura was separated from her siblings and hopes she be reunited with them one day.
  • Like many of her fellow Pretty Cure sisters, Nao has close ties to the Toku heroes. She is especially close to Philip, one half of Kamen Rider Double, since they both have a preference for wind. She also feels for him because of how dysfunctional his family life was. She was also close to Mio of the ToQgers since both of them happens to be the Big Sister-figures of their respective teams.
  • Was some how infected with some kind of toxin that cause her to live though one of her worst fear. That fear? Reliving the scene of watching helplessly as her siblings were successfully killed by Majorina and weren't saved by the Cures. While she was able to be cure of her ailment, it left her emotionally wrecked.

Rashid, God of Tornado Moves (Rashid of the Turbulent Wind, Rashīdo)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A tornado
  • Theme Song: RASHIDOOOO, Martyr, The Turbulent Wind when pissed off
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Blow You Away, Cool Scouter, Fun Personified, Grin of Audacity, Le Parkour, Pretty Boy, A Friend in Need
  • Domains: Air, Combat, Chaos, Good, Artifice
  • Herald: Azam (his butler)
  • Allies: Charlie Nash, Zangief, Rainbow Mika, Ryu, Dhalsim, Crimson Viper, Chun-Li, Guile, Dudley, Cammy White, John Egbert, Aang, Viewtiful Joe, Coco, Toriko and Komatsu, Lee Everett and Clementine, Zia Rashid
  • Rivals: Al'Akir, Ayane
  • Enemies: F.A.N.G, M. Bison, Vega, Balrog, Envy, Nui Harime
  • Distrusts: Kolin, Urien
  • Unwitting Pawn to: Gill
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Juri Han
  • Among the Street Fighters from the the latest revealed sagas, Rashid is arguably the most popular. His acrobatic fighting style and bubbly attitude that defies his stereotype has won many fans. Unfortunately, his path to ascension was rough. Bison in particular was angered in his involvement and sought to block his entry. Luckily, the good-aligned Street Fighters stood by his side and let him pass. Now he has a new domain to explore and make friends in.
    • He was happy to lend a hand with the good aligned heroes during that situation…even if it initially meant getting in the way. He has since apologized and is willing to cooperate with them.
    • Was a bit peeved that Juri made it into the Pantheon. Their first encounter went badly for him, a defeat he blames on not being used to fighting provocative women. Neither of the two is in a rush to meet a second time.
    • Nash, on the other hand, is someone who Rashid could tell had good in him despite his gruff and uncaring demeanor. When a conversation between them was part of what jolted Nash back to his senses when it came to his trusted friends, Rashid would've been pleased…except that clarity came with a Heroic Sacrifice. Understandably, Rashid is overjoyed to see the level-headed (if still serious) Nash in the Pantheon.
    • There is one combatant he takes seriously. When entering Dhalsim's temple, he bowed down in respect for the yoga master. This reaction definitely took Dhalsim by surprise, but was impressed with his behavior. He suspects that Rashid isn't as naive as people perceive him to be.
  • Despite the immense evil that Shadaloo has wrought in the world, Rashid does not hold that much hatred with its leader Bison. But that playfulness ends with one particular person. F.A.N.G may look insignificant to some, but the henchman can be cruel at times…including killing Rashid's friend. Both that and the fact that F.A.N.G waited until the climax of the Black Moon plan to not only casually tell the tale, but gloat about it to boot, sent Rashid into a murderous rage. Rashid had hoped that would be the end of him, but rumors persist of his survival as well as his debut in the Pantheon. For that arrival, Rashid will be there in waiting.
    • When he heard of a toxin user in the Toxicity subhouse being a member of the Four Heavenly Kings, he prepared himself to confront F.A.N.G. Except the one he found was Coco, part of a different grand quartet who'd in fact become enemies with Shadaloo after he turned down Bison's offer to replace F.A.N.G in the Pantheon. To prove this true, Coco took Rashid to meet Toriko and his chef Komatsu. After sparring with Toriko and sharing in one of Komatsu's fine meals, Rashid is now a friend to the Four Gourmet Kings.
    • Gets along well with Mustang, Hughes, Ryuko, and Satsuki in addition to Guile and Nash due to how similar this is to their own revenge quests. Also finds Envy the Jealous and Nui Harime deplorable for being killers who later confessed their crimes and then gloated about it.
    • Later, F.A.N.G finally did ascend to the Pantheon, and Rashid was ready for it. While he didn't kill F.A.N.G, his attack was so ferocious the poison master of Shadaloo became spooked for awhile. It's said that this is why F.A.N.G's moves through the Pantheon are quite discreet when he's alone.
  • His tornadoes aren't the only thing that spin. He has so many Spin Attacks that he was considered for the role over Ayane. The ninja has taken note of the newcomer and has bolstered her ranks to defend her temple.
  • His domain expends over to Granblue Fantasy where he helped Gran and Lydia defeat some Shadaloo agents. There, he is considered to be a wind elemental capable of devastating tornadoes. He is astonished and honored to take part of the adventure.
  • Rashid wondered why he couldn't be the God of Tornadoes. It just so happens that the position was taken and the wielder has no intention of letting go. Al'Akir is not impressed with the newcomer, especially since the usurper uses machinery to manipulate the winds. With that animosity, Rashid has shied away from competing with him, though a small subset of followers are hoping he could take up the throne.
  • Gets along better with John Egbert as he finds the latter's jokes as hilarious, even when done upon himself. Rashid also likes how much Egbert values the power of friendship.
  • Gets along with Aang rather well. At first, Rashid wanted to portray an older brother relationship between the two, even though Aang is far more powerful and technically older than him. But realizing his nature as the Avatar, Rashid has come to respect the kid for going through all that hardship yet coming out on top. He hopes to learn new techniques with his tornado moves.
  • He gets rather defensive when people compare his Scouters to those worn by Frieza and his minions. He thought that what he created was original.
  • Is probably the most social media savvy of all the Street Fighters. He has taken great length to record as many matches between fighters as possible before posting them online. His accounts have amassed quite a following.
  • He's actually a pretty big fan of Viewtiful Joe, even going so far as to cosplay as Joe. The Henshin Hero of Movie Land was flattered when asked about it.
  • Found fellow Street Fighter Dudley who also is accompanied by his butler whenever he goes fighting, and the two shared stories over tea. Dudley is also willing to help Rashid fight off against Gill, due to the Illuminati leader taking his father's car back when he was younger.
  • Thought he heard his loyal butler Azam in the house of profession. Turned out, that was Lee Everett. The two get along splendidly and Rashid has given Lee a comforting pat on the back after hearing the hell the man went through to save Clementine (and hopes the best for the young girl too).
  • Found another Rashid in the House of Nature, namely a fire magician who had been host to both a sun god and a river goddess at differing points. He could tell that Zia was a caring yet guarded person, no doubt having suffered losses in her life, so he decided to start looking after her as sort of a big brother. He usually only refers to her by her first name.
  • "I am Rashid of the turbulent wind! Remember the name well."

    Tomas Vrbada/Smoke 
Tomas Vrbada, God of Vaporizing Fog (Smoke)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Babality-ified Robo-Smoke.
  • Theme Music: Fire (Instrumental), Theme for the Lin Kuei assassin Smoke
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Smoke Combat, Czech Ninja, Ex-Secret Character, Seriously Unfortunate Life, Teleportation (with smoke bombs too!), Battle Aura in form of Smokes
  • Domains: Nature, Combat, Good
  • Followers: Smoker
  • Former Ally: Raiden (after the events of Mortal Kombat 9)
  • Allies:
  • Rival: Reptile
  • Enemies:
  • Although also had his powers stolen when his avatar was destroyed by Sindel and enslaved by Quan Chi, Smoke managed to make it to the Pantheon as beforehand, the former holder of the house was not keeping a steel grip on the house. As he represents smoke a lot, Smoke is welcomed, especially by his 'bro' Sub-Zero II.
    • In fact, it was the combination of their friendship that enables their presence to stay in the Pantheon, despite Quan Chi's antics. It is believed that if things were to go smooth later, they will launch a counterattack against Quan Chi to reclaim what was theirs.
  • Before he managed to shape this form of his, he was once a robot. But even then, his friendship with Sub-Zero continue to exist, it's the stuff of legends.
  • Don't mention "Yoink!" in his presence, it really hurts him for the fact that he used to steal things of others during his cyborg days.
  • "Where there's smoke, there's fire."
  • After discovering that Raiden's actions were what caused him alongside with Kitana, Kung Lao, Kurtis Stryker and Sub-Zero to be enslaved by Quan Chi and sent to the GUAE Re Education Facility, he alongside with the aforementioned, severed his ties with him and found new mentors in Thrall and Rachel Alucard.
    • Raiden has recently gotten a better reputation after doing a better job over 25 years and the revelation that Shinnok and Quan Chi had worked behind the scenes to screw over Raiden. Smoke would be willing to ally himself with the Thunder God again, if it weren't for him still being a revenant and wrestling with his inner Enenra after Quan Chi's death by Scorpion's hands. That, and with Raiden becoming Dark Raiden, the Thunder God has marked him with a warning that he'll show no mercy if he ever strikes Earthrealm, looks like Raiden isn't in the mood to do some mentoring.
