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.

Greater Gods

    Al'akir 
Al'Akir the Windlord, God of Tornadoes (The Windlord, Elemental Lord of Air, Ruler of Skywall, The Last)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alakir.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Throne of the four winds.
  • Theme Song: Skywall
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (Though easily mistaken for Chaotic Evil)
  • 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
  • Heralds: The Air Elementals and The Djinnies
  • Allies: The Old Gods, Deathwing, Nefarian, Zaheer, Wamuu
  • Rivals: Ragnaros the Firelord, Chaac
  • Enemies: Alexstrasza, Ysera, 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:
    I AM SO DONE!
    • 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:
    Al'Akir: LIKE SWATTING INSECTS!
  • 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.
  • WINDS! OBEY MY COMMAND!

Intermediate Gods

    Fujin (Mortal Kombat
Fujin, God of Wind Manipulation (God of Wind, Wind God)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mk11_fujin_render_0.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His sword and crossbow
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Formerly Lawful Good)
  • Portfolio: All-Loving Hero, Wields a Crossbow and a Sword, Spin Attack, Flight, Foil to Raiden, Messianic Archetype, Believed to be dead (twice), Razor Wind
  • Domains: Wind, Kombat, Godhood, Missions, Morality
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Fujin is the Wind God of Earthrealm and one tasked with defending it from invaders. While not as active as Raiden, his older brother, Fujin is still very dedicated towards the protection of Earthrealm and possibly more compasionate that his brother could ever be. His ascension come following the events of Kronika's meddling with time and in her attempts to create a new era, she had Fujin trapped in the void. After Kronika's defeat, she alognside Nightwolf and Shang Tsung were freed and then had to devise a plan to go back in time and acquire Kronika's crown in order to properly use the Hourglass but an alliance with Shang Tsung was a risky move that ultimately they had to take to ensure victory and while Fujin was ultimately betrayed, his defeat was not in vane as Fire God Liu Kang managed to defeat Shang Tsung and restart the timeline with everyone safe and sound.
  • Given his command over wind and being the elemental god of Wind in his setting, it was only natural that Fujin would be recommended by his allies for the position. Raiden felt more relieved knowing his brother was in the Pantheon and if there was someone he would trust, it was him. Fujin however, was alarmed to know that all the foes he faced on his own universe were back and looking to settle the score, but that wouldn't deter him in the slightest.
  • Fujin is a lot more approachable than Raiden and less likely to go corrupt. In fact, while he wasn't an ascended pantheonic deity at the time, he tried his best to help the pantheon during his brother's tenure as Dark Raiden and while he got around to the Pantheon after Raiden stopped, he still was tasked by both Rachel Alucard and Thrall to keep an eye on his brother should he get out of line again, though they doubt he will try to return to those old habits.
  • Given his domain over wind, it was only natural that he would try to relate to those who can also manipulate the air and for the most part he found like-minded people. However, he faced a lot of opposition from Al'akir, elemental lord of air and one of the most powerful of their house, with Fujin lamenting that he still serves the masters that corrupted him and would rather not try to fight him if possible. He also is dissapointed at Goenitz for being someone who not only manipulates wind for combat but his connections to Orochi soured Fujin's opinion on him, believing Goenitz worships a false god (While Goenitz himself in turn thinks Fujin is the false messiah). Then there was Wamuu, the Pillar man who can also manipulate wind and happens to be the one who held the title in the past, belonging to a group that doesn't have the best intentions only placed him in Fujin's hit list.
  • Fujin took a special liking to Avatar Aang for being part of the airbenders of the south and pities that for a while he was The Last of His Kind. Fujin has also been an excellent teacher to Aang, teaching him new tricks that Aang himself wasn't aware of yet and the two for the most part work a lot together in GUAG related matters in order to keep the Pantheon in balance.
  • Like mentioned before, Fujin for a deity is a being that is very understanding of humans and mortals and it's implied he even formed a family once, something that his brother never quite approved considering what their duties are. He relates a lot to the Silver Surfer for a similar mindset on other creatures and wishes he would stay as far away from Galactus grasp as possible.
    • To his surprise, he never expected a machine to understand his point of view consider they are as far removed as deity as one would expect. And it happened to be the T-800 Terminator reprogrammed to protect John Connor. Fujin is very familiar with his kind, having encountered one before and the behavior of that one (at first) barely reflected the one this exhibited. Nevertheless, the two share various goals in common and are willing to work together.
  • Those that threaten the ones that have no means of protection or look down on mortals as mere insect are the ones Fujin despises the most, and that's saying something considering the nasty people he had the displeasure of encountering. Mard Geer Tartaros for example sounded to him like a Shinnok wannabe that thought himself stronger than he think he is while disliking humans for petty reasons. And then there was the Knight Templar that was Zamasu, a fallen Kaioshing who thinks Fujin living and caring for mortals makes him unworthy of being called a god.
  • Unlike other deities in the pantheon, Fujin doesn't hold any animosity towards Kratos and is pretty good friends with him all things considered. Mostly because he helped Kratos return to his universe with the help of Raiden and the two have remained good allies long after the Ghost of Sparta changed his ways.
  • Believe it or not, gods too have hobbies. Fujin's just happen to be movies and he also turns out to be a huge Johnny Cage fan (though even he admits Fatal Infinity wasn't his best work). He is also been trying to check out newer material that isn't part of his home universe, starting with the House of Theatre and Spectacle.
  • He's heard of the existance of a competition called Death Watch and found it to be not to his liking, ironic considering he hails from a universe where similar contests decides the fate of entire realms. He also isn't impressed with Frederik Von Twirlenkiller turbines that allow him to swing tornadoes at his opponents and find it laughable that he met his end thanks to his own weapons turned against him, something that is unlikely to work with Fujin.

    Nao Midorikawa/Cure March 
Nao Midorikawa, Goddess of the Green Wind (Cure March, April, Glitter Spring)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/CureMarch285_2858.jpg
  • 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
  • Portfolio: DON'T MESS WITH HER FAMILY!!, Big Gal, Big Sister Instinct, Cool Big Sis, Kick Chick, Oldest of Seven Younger Siblings, Big Eater, Afraid of Bugs and Ghosts, Super Speed

  • 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 
Rashid, God of Tornado Moves (Rashid of the Turbulent Wind, Rashīdo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rashid_9.png
  • 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, Aang, Viewtiful Joe, Coco, Toriko and Komatsu, Lee Everett and Clementine, Zia Rashid, Ra
  • 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 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)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Smokerenderexp2_3555.png
  • 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.
