Greater Gods

    Hermes/Mercury 
Mercury, God of Winged Clothing (Hermes, Messenger of the Gods, Merc)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mercury.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His winged sandals and/or the Caduceus
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ancient Grome, Super Speed, Mercury's Wings (Trope Maker), Trickster Archetype, Fun Personified (Stepford Smiler deep down), Flash Step, Fragile Speedster
  • Domains: Speed, Messengers, Trickery,
  • Allies: Zeus, Aphrodite, Athena, Vulcan, Bacchus, Hercules, Wonder Woman, Billy Batson/Shazam, The Courier, Derpy Hooves, Pinkie Pie, Wander, Good deities from the House of Travel (especially Kino), The Lol Rangers, Little Mac, Junpei Iori, Igor
  • Rivals: The Flash, Sonic, Rainbow Dash, Dash Parr, The Scout, Speedy Gonzales, Charlotte E. Yeager, Son Goku, Superman
  • Enemies: Hera, Both Hades, Ares, Kratos, Gilgamesh, The Trollkaiger, Evil deities from the House of Travel, Loki, The Joker, Nyarlathotep.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Percy Jackson, The House of Crime, the Itazura Griefers
  • One day, Zeus needed to assemble the Olympian representatives within the Pantheon and he sent messages out to them. However, he grew impatient and tired with the Courier's affinity to be distracted by other things and Derpy's... well... being Derpy respectively. He then had a brilliant idea and immediately sent out an important invitation (which took several days to get to its destination outside the Pantheon). The second the recipient received the letter, a blur was seen entering the Main Gates and reported in at Zeus' temple in the House of Magic. Mercury had arrived.
  • Mercury, in this identity or as his Greek side Hermes, is the Original Super Speed god. All those who come after him pay him tribute with the use of his winged accessory motif, whether on headgear, footwear or any other accessory. Also, despite general opinion, Mercury's winged sandals do not grant speed or flight. They are more or less specially made for him as any other footwear would quickly wear out due to the distances and velocity he travels on and when worn by others, his inane ability was transferred to them hence the false belief that Mercury would no longer have Super Speed without his sandals.
    • With so many other natural speedsters in the Pantheon from Flash to Rainbow Dash to Charlotte E. Yeager to even Superman himself, and now including the original speedster himself, many deities have decided to set up an eventual race between them all to see if Mercury still has what it takes or if he will pass the torch to a new deity... after the Pantheonic Tournament and the Sniper Duel Battle Royale have passed, of course.
  • Even though Mercury treats all speed deities as potential rivals, the only one he talks on truly friendly terms is Billy Batson as he was one of the gods who gave his Blessing towards his transformation into Shazam. After all, who do you think the "M" at the end of his name stands for?
  • As Zeus can attest, Mercury is a far more competent messenger as once he has his delivery mission, he will deliver it, no matter what. However, he only specializes in message delivery, so other types of deliveries and mail are still the domains of the Courier and Derpy Hooves, much to the dismay of other Houses who also grew tired of the Courier's lax attitude and the mare's klutziness. Still, when not on the clock, he is seen having some drinks (and a muffin or two) with his fellow delivery deities to show no hard feelings.
  • Mercury's physical strength may not be one of the most-talked-about with some many Super Strength deities in the Pantheon, but many eventually think twice after feeling what amounts to being hit by a speeding train right in the jaw as the Messenger relies on his speed to further increase his damage output with his punches and even sends entire Mook armies flying with Special Delivery, among other feats. The only drawback is once you get him to stop, he goes down just as fast as he can run.
  • When not needed by Zeus or other gods, he can be found playing light-hearted pranks or shoot good-natured snark salvos around the Pantheon. However, he clearly does it to get laughs, not because of malice. If it doesn't get a laugh, then what's the point of pranks? It's this which puts him at odds with fellow Classical trickster, Loki Laufeyson, and really places him in a different category than the Joker. Still, he tends to join the GUAG Lol Rangers on missions if he has the time. He currently is pending approval as a Ranger Partner.
  • Despite being an optimistic and carefree god, he has his moments of sobriety when it comes to his demigod son, Luke. In fact, anyone who claims he doesn't care for any of his demigod children will be met with a salvo of punches as he circumvents Primus at beyond-light speed.
    • He and Percy Jackson didn't see each other eye to eye after he accused him of being responsible for Luke turning the way he was. He was extremely irate for being thought of as a deadbeat. However, things eventually patched between the two, but he still hasn't forgotten the sting of Percy's words.
  • Another of his shames was allowing himself to be inflicted by the evil of Pride and Mischief from Pandora's Box when Kratos opened it. With its infliction, he turned from a light-hearted and jovial Trickster to a self-centered Troll. No longer was he bound by his personal ethics as he acted purely For the Evulz when Kratos stormed Olympus. Not only did he snark him every step of the way, he did the unthinkable (once he was lucid and free from evil) and insulted Kratos's dead family when he himself had his own family problems with his children. After he was killed and reborn with the evil finally purged from his body, he regrets his actions, but Kratos will have none of it. Even confessing about his problems with Luke did little to put the Ghost of Sparta in his good graces, who decided to mock him for it. Mercury's Berserk Button was pushed but refrained from attacking Kratos as he considered it being even.
    • As they represent one half of his Pandora's Box evils, he doesn't get along at all with both Gilgamesh and the Trollkaiger. He does, however, soften his stance with the Itazura Griefers as they are not as horrible as the Trollkaiger, but have still done questionable acts that he doesn't condone.
  • Mercury is also known as the God of Thieves back in his own Pantheon as some of the most legendary feats (which included stealing his brother Apollo's sacred herd of cows while still an infant) dealt with mixing his trickery with his really fast sticky-fingers. He personally doesn't like the attention he gets in the House of Crime, but he does have good relations with Carmen Sandiego, Captain Jack, Sly Cooper, Robin Hood, Aladdin, and Isaac & Miria.
  • He is one of the few gods that gets along with Pinkie Pie as she's always fun to be around and always tell him to smile even in the face of despair as she somehow knew about Luke, and her baking skills are amazing. She later introduced him to one of his favorite new friends, Wander. Despite both are as different as can be, they enjoy each other's company and they tend to have a banjo/lyre jam session every once in a while. When Wander asked Mercury why he is playing his brother Apollo's instrument, the speedster laughs and replies that he was the one who invented it and his brother merely became associated with it after trading it for the cow herd he has stolen from him.
  • Wander also told Mercury about Kino who rides a motorcycle which bears his Greek side's name. Curious, he was instantly at the House of Travel as soon as Wander finished the sentence and met her, agreeing to travel together for a few days. He had to slow down his pace as he journeyed with her but got to know both her and his namesake Hermes well. Kino was quick to point out that Mercury was better with using figures of speech than the motorcycle could which made the god laugh. In the end, Mercury said spending time with her was possible one of the best "slow times" he's ever had in his immortal life and places her friendship with her next to Wander and Pinkie.
  • The WVBA boxers in the Pantheon were shocked to see none other than their fellow combatant Von Kaiser around the Pantheon moving extremely fast on his feet and dishing out extremely rapid punches. The second he spoke in what was not his familiar voice, they all realized it was Mercury in a very convincing likeness of the German pugilist, down to his pre-title defense hairstyle and suspenders. Little Mac hopes someday to challenge him but decides to train in order to prepare himself against such a fast opponent.
  • At one point, Mercury lent his strength to battle against the deity Nyarlathotep under his Greek name Hermes, but in the end, he asked Chronos to take over for him... but that attempt ended in a big failure as Nyarlathotep still triggered The End of the World as We Know It and not only rubbed the failure on Chronos, but also to Mercury, constantly reminding him that he looked so pathetic, just like when Kratos gibbed him. After Nyarlathotep was taken down, Mercury sought to atone for his failure by lending his strength to Junpei Iori instead. However, in the end, he's called for another duty and had to relinquish the position again to Trismigestus, but at least he's glad that Junpei's quest did not end with a big failure, although tragedy still followed. He goes for another go when he assisted the cat known as Morgana. No one knows the details, but what was known is that Mercury seems to have grown fond of Igor and the Velvet Room.

note

note 
  • Intermediate God (portrays himself as a Greater God in a daydream, one that aims to be an Overdeity)
  • Symbol: His beak
  • Theme Music: Duck Dodgers theme as...you know; Daffy the Wizard whenever he has a particular daydream
  • Alignment: All over the place, though he mostly leans towards Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Being a chew toy, Crazy Survivalist, Lovable Coward, Jerkass with moments of kindness, being greedy, Straw Loser, Feather Fingers, Lisp, Cloudcuckoolander, Alliterative Name, Always Second Best, Deuteragonist
  • Domains: Ducks, Toons, Insanity
  • Heralds: Plucky Duck, Tina Russo, Dr. I.Q. High (the latter only appears when Dodgers is involved)
  • Avatar: Mel Blanc
  • Allies: Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Mickey Mouse, Speedy Gonzales, Sylvester & Tweety, Roger Rabbit, Pinky & the Brain, Freakazoid, Buck Rogers, Michael Jordan
  • Rivals: Donald Duck, Tom
  • Friendly Enemies: Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Marvin the Martian
  • Enemies: Lord Shen, Grand Duke of Owls, Clockwerk, The Crow, HYDRA, Red Skull, Wilheim Strasse, Millennium
  • Annoyed at: Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck
  • Odd Friendship: Hal Jordan, Eikichi Onizuka, Buck Rogers
  • Ascended at the request of Bugs Bunny because of an agreement to share the spotlight together (see below), as well as because of a ploy to ascend Toontown into the Pantheon's dominions by ascending as many toons as possible.
    • Once also tried to get the title of God of Karmic Trickery, but lost to Bugs because the latter said Daffy should get it.
      • At one point, much to Daffy's frustration, his old title got revoked for reasons unknown. The duck demanded that he be kept in the Pantheon, so the Court of the Gods had to find another title he could take.
  • Once got himself fired from Warner Bros. over his complaint of always being second to Bugs, and wanting a movie of his own. Bugs was able to get him rehired, and the two agreed to share the spotlight together. This is the reason why Daffy is an Intermediate God.
  • Ever since the 1980s, Daffy can't keep even a dollar to himself after inheriting a vast fortune from J.P. Cubish for making him laugh, and being too self-centered to follow up Cubish's will, resulting in Cubish to take any money the duck touches. As a result, he is banned from the House of Commerce (his disposed predecessor's former house) because of his curse.
  • At first, Daffy hated Speedy for no particular reason. The two reconciled since then and have never said anything about these conflicts. The two have been hanging out quite a bit, with one notable instance of them running a private island (though it ended in failure and it took a lot of time to get a burrito out of Speedy's nose).
  • Non-toon gods have a lot of fun with trolling Daffy using pencils from the House of Theater. It got to a point where Daffy got tired of it and wanted to see Bugs in such a situation, which later came true.
  • Has a rivalry with Donald Duck that was triggered by a piano duel between them in 1947. To this day, they still hold piano duels, which always result in them fighting. Daffy gets rather annoyed at Huey, Dewey, & Louie for constantly heckling him during these performances.
    • A piano duel was held in the House of Music at one point. At least, it started as a piano duel. The end result had Daffy and Donald banned from going near any pianos. The two are free to try out other instruments as long as it's not a piano. (Daffy is eager to do a xylophone duel, but Donald is not willing to accept the suggestion)
    • The only thing the two will agree on is that at least their music isn't as destructive as Patrick Star's infamous song that brings far more chaos. The starfish is banned alongside them.
  • Holds credit for creating one of the earliest examples of what would later be known as the Youtube Poop during one of his outings.
  • Every now and then, Daffy has had different daydreams. One such example is him being a wizard. Daffy is reportedly interested in becoming one though many are uncertain as to the results of it outside of these dreams.
    • There was another dream where he imitated Samurai Jack. It's been said that it happened after he ate a poisoned blowfish in the House of Food.
  • Has some weird guidelines on what kind of birthday presents he should get. It's been a source of frustration for those shopping for birthday presents.
  • Back in the 1940's, Daffy went up against Nazis and has shown contempt towards them. In turn, Nazi deities such as Red Skull are disgusted at the duck.
  • Daffy has a pretty long resume, including being a detective (in different forms, one of them based on Sherlock Holmes) and a superhero (yes, he was a Green Lantern at one point).
    • Arguably one of his most noticeable jobs was being the space hero, Duck Dodgers, who's a bit of a Genius Ditz. If he's really unlucky, then the flight packs will blow up in his face if he just says "Duck Dodgers".
    • Still, none of the deities he has imitated have anything against him, and in fact like to hang around Daffy.
  • In his spare time, he has been trying to start up his own sports team known as the Ducks. Others have been telling him that the team won't get far and that the name sounds like something a "Mickey Mouse organization" would give to a team.
  • The duck got bored one day and decided to speak Japanese for a change. To his surprise, he sounded like Eikichi Onizuka during these instances. Daffy is trying to be a Japanese teacher at the School just to further his resume and though nothing has come of the task for now, Daffy gets along surprisingly well with Eikichi.
  • His personality changes quite a bit. One day, he may be a crazy loon (during such a day, his signature laughter is a clue to start running), the next he will be egocentric. Other times, he can be an idiot (for lack of a better term regarding certain antics). Given his general unpredictability, it's hard to say what his personality of the day will be.
  • For whatever reason, he has a rivalry with the Co-God of Slapstick, Tom, where both of them keeps wearing odd suits and posing. Some people theorize that this is because of a pair of newly gained Stands, respectivly named Literally Me and One More Time.

    Dizzy 
Dizzy, Divine Representative of Good and Evil Wings (The Innocent Gear, The Child of Fate, Maiden of the Grove, Dizzy Kiske)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dizzy.png
  • Intermediate Goddess (Greater Goddess at true potential; she purposely holds back)
  • Symbol: Two wings, one white and concealing a beautiful goddess-like face, one black and concealing a malevolent-looking skull
  • Theme Music: Awe of She
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Always Being Where the Deer and the Antelope Play, Incredible Amounts of Power, Technical Jailbait, ZOMG FEATHERS, Pacifism
  • Domains: Ice, Fire, Magic, Shape, Love
  • Allies: Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske (her husband), Chiyo-chichi, Chiyo-chan, Yotsuba, Mai Tokiha, Bridget, Noel Vermillion, May, Ryoji Mochizuki, Nana, Bastion
  • Enemies: Justice, Khorne, the Millennium, Sundowner
  • Opposed by: I-No
  • Some believe she is named that way due to how her backstory can leave people...dizzy. One of the rare half-Gears in the world, she is feared by many and with good reason. She is under the giuidance of two persona, one of which would love to kill all humans. For the most part, she keeps both sides of her under control under the watch of Sol Badguy, the man who decided to give her a second leash of life. This story has been made sweeter by the revelation that Sol is her father.
    • Was once the good counterpart of Person of Mass Destruction to counteract with Justice. Unfortunately, there were not that many followers that followed that mantra and she decided to move her temple. Nowadays, she serves as the perfect fit to contrast good and evil aligned deities with wings. Most deities were in agreement that this position fit her better.
  • With Testament yet to ascend to the Pantheon, she now resides along with Ky who volunteered to watch over her. It has been confirmed that she and Ky are an Official Couple and gave birth to their non-ascended son Sin Kiske neither person has confirmed whether this is true and would rather leave things be. This would imply that she becomes the Queen of Illyria. Whether the people would accept a gear in that position remains to be seen.
  • She has been one of the top priorities of pacifists everywhere to keep her to their cause. She has longed for a time when people like her don't have to worry about persecution. Dizzy was glad that she has plenty of support for her cause.
  • While there are very few people she actively hates, the person who is number one on that list is I-No. The two women may well be polar opposites. The Musical Assassin has long tried to provoke Dizzy to unleash Necro. Dizzy is determined to prove her wrong and maintain her composure.
  • The same can be said for Khorne, who's entire clergy thrives on the concept of being violent for violence's sake.
  • Despite her outfit, is actually quite demure and shy. Most of the gods and goddesses were caught off-guard by this. Morrigan and Lilith in particular were befuddled as to "that new succubus-looking-girl's" behavior. Not that this dissuaded them from trying to get into her...umm... good graces, though. Of course, the two are hoping a more outgoing personality out of her.
    • Among her most fervent defenders from debauchery are May and... Johnny of all people Handsome Lech aside, Johnny genuinely hopes that Dizzy can naturally create her own path. People question whether putting her in a pirate ship comprising of all women would do that, but May insists that they want the best from her. They have been wary of any Abhorrent Admirers after her.
    • Regardless, she also has plenty of other suitors around from other universes. Some may want to think of naughty stuff, some may be just as shy and demure, some may be a bit rough-minded yet sweet....though both Sol and Ky seem to feel annoyed at this newfound popularity Dizzy has gotten.
  • Is quite interested in cooking, and likes to compare recipes with Mai Tokiha. Mai has taken a liking to the girl, given how easy it is to gather food with such powerful abilities.
  • Has a strange feeling that she's known Chiyo-chichi for some time, but she can't quite put her finger on it...
  • Sometimes her power sparks out of her control. Whenever it does, Sol and Ky always happen to be nearby and steps in to help her get it back under control. Anyone who questions them about this gets a noncommittal grunt from Sol and a sigh from Ky.
  • She's noticeably gotten a bit more in control over herself and her wings in the past five years, though that doesn't stop her from sometimes having to tackle her black wing Necro so he doesn't end up nuking her enemies. Thankfully, most people would stop short of taking on her after that.
    • And to those that don't, here's a demonstration of what she is capable of. Luckily at this point a few of her attackers surrender at that point.
  • Among the rival Blazblue gods, she has most in common with Noel. The sharpshoot has also been subject to several Break the Cutie moments, including being brainwashed to become the Big Bad. Not surprisingly, the two were quick to befriend each other when their friends became rivals. Even when Dizzy grew out of her A-Cup Angst, Noel never felt intimidated by Dizzy's lumps.
  • Has befriended the robotic killing machine Bastion, who has become a Friend to All Living Things. Dizzy was among the most ardent supporters of its ascension and the robot returned gratitude with a gift. The girl has also given seeds to the Bastion's friend Ganymede for gratitude.
  • Has gotten help in how to handle her lost memories from Ryoji Mochizuki. He has also had to deal with a past that threatens to consume him to darkness.

    Salamence 
Salamence, God of Growing Wings (The Dragon Pokémon (in general), "The blood-soaked crescent" (Mega Salamence))
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/373salamence_5.png
Mega Salamence 
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Mega Salamence)
  • Symbol: His wings
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Intimidate (base), Aerilate (Mega Salamence)
  • Moveset: Fly, Dragon Claw, Double Edge, Flamethrower
    • Z-Move: Devestating Drake
  • Portfolio: Growing Wings, Dreamed Of Flight And Finally Achieving It, Lightning Bruiser, Clap Your Hands If You Believe, Becoming A Dick Upon Getting Flight, VERY Rare Chance Of Early Encounter, The Fighting Narcissist, The Dreaded, Having A Mega Evolution
  • Domains: Dragons, Flight, Speed, Power, Aggression, Collisions, Dreams
  • Allies: Rayquaza, Zinnia, Ash Ketchum, Tate and Liza, the Red Gyarados, Daenerys Targaryen, Reubus Hagrid, Suguha Kirigaya/Leafa
  • Respects: Io, Ventuswill
  • Rival: The White Metagross
  • Enemies: Hunter J, Ghetsis Harmonia, all cryomancers, Kyurem, Sindragosa, Jakiro, The Dovahkiin, Acnologia, Ripto (really any hater and/or hunter of dragons)
  • On poor terms with: Mushu, Spyro and non-flying dragons, the House of Celebration
  • Unclear opinion on: Petrie
  • Salamence, the Dragon Pokémon, is the final evolved form of Bagon. This Dragon-type dreams of one day flying, dashing off cliffs and falling down which it gets through with literal thick-headedness. Bagon evolves to Shelgon, and out of this chrysalis emerges the flying dragon it always dreamed to be. And as one of the strongest non-legendary Pokémon in Hoenn to boot.
  • Upon achieving flight, Salamence proceeded to fly around until it got exhausted, and act like a complete asshole by shooting fire at stuff for the lulz and marveling on its own flight and power. It takes great pride in its flying offense. The House of Celebration were not pleased by the destructive "party" it held upon being able to fly around in the pantheon, and has told him to knock it off.
  • His love of flight led him to form a partnership with Annabelle for having a wish to fly one day and achieving it. Given her compassionate nature and Salamence's Jerkass attitude, it was pretty peculiar they got along...or maybe Salamence still has some softness in him. His passion for flight has led him to be very confused about Petrie, given she's a pterosaur with an ironic fear of flying. He feels bad that anyone would be afraid of the gift of flight, but can't for the life of him understand why a flying creature like Petrie would.
  • Hunter J was disappointed that her own Salamence didn't ascend. The Salamence in the pantheon hates her like every other Pokémon who she doesn't own, and has gone on to say her Salamence is a traitor to all Salamence and Pokémon for siding with her, thinking only a Pokémon bad at heart would follow Hunter J without hesitance. Which is saying a lot from him.
  • Seems to get along with the Red Gyarados. Presumably it's because they were both relatively weak(Gyarados more so) that became monsters who cause trouble. He also seems to have a respect for, and rivalry to the White Metagross. They are the two psudeo-legendaries from Hoenn, something no other region shares, so they like to test their meddle on who's the better psuedo-legendary of the two.
  • Usually comes to rest in the House of Dragons. He likes to match flight with many other flying dragons. However he seems to be unimpressed by dragons who don't fly, particuarly Spyro who can't normally manage. He calls Spyro a pipsqueak, and treats Mushu with little respect for being a small dragon. Mushu pointed out he shouldn't be boasting about size considering he's 4 foot 11. This embarrassed Salamence, saying "only from top to bottom, not length!" and he angrily stormed off.
  • Has a deep contempt towards anyone associated with ice, as he has a x4 weakness to Ice type moves. But what really pisses him off are dragons with ice-related power, as he considers it a betrayal of everything dragons are. As such, he hates Sindragosa and Jakiro because of their ice powers. He also gets on really badly with Kyurem, a Dragon/Ice legendary.
  • Possesses even more loathing towards those that hunt dragons, and as such will attack the Dovahkiin on site. He hates Acnologia for being a dragon-loathing dragon that used to be a human, and Ripto for his Fantastic Racism towards dragons.
  • Despite his unpleasant behavior, there are dragons that Salamence behaves properly around. He respects Io as the god of dragons, and won't try something stupid like show off around him. He also acts cordially around Ventuswill. She's a winged dragon who grew happier over time, reminding him of the joy he felt when Growing Wings. Given his trainer, he also is fond of Rayquaza.
  • He gets along with Daenerys Targaryen due to her position as the mother of dragons, and will let her ride on his back. He seems to be fond of Reubus Hagrid as well, because of how he's able to handle dangerous magical animals and seems to treat him with respect.

Lesser Gods

    Angela Ziegler/Mercy 
Dr. Angela Ziegler, Goddess of Symbolic Wings (Mercy, Doc, The Witch of the Wilds, Mommy Mercy, Mom)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mercy_58.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Wings.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Combat Medic, Gold and White Are Divine, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold, Holy Halo, Using the Valkyrie suit to fly, Light Is Good, Martial Pacifist, Is 37 but looks much younger than that, Reluctant Warrior, Woman in White
  • Domains: Medics, Healing, Revives, Angels
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Reaper, Widowmaker, Ares, Baron, Nurgle, Pestilence, Typhus, Evil Necromancers in general.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Retsu Unohana, The Medic
  • Opposes: The House of War (Mostly the people that encourage it), Sirius
  • Angela Ziegler is a genius scientist who thanks to her contributions in the field of applied nanobiology, she was able to revolutionize medicine. While initially hesitant to join Overwatch, having lost her parents in war left a deep mark in Angela and that's why she doesn't approve of military organizations like them. However, she saw an oportunity to save lives on a much larger scale, Angela agreed to join, leading to the creation of Valkyrie swift-response suit, which she uses to save lives on the battlefield.
  • Her suit allows her to revive all her fallen comrades, giving them a second chance to return to the fight. This makes Angela both a valuable teammate and an important target to take down. She is very used to the latter anyway.
    • The resurrection of her allies is accompanied by her shouting "HEROES NEVER DIE!", usually negating the effort done by the enemy team. Though there have been rumors that Mercy lets her teammates die on purpose just so she can get the "Play of the Game". She has not commented about this. Later her suit got toned down and her resurrection ability happens less regularly, so Angela was commissioned to a different temple after reviewing her Valkerye suit and the motifs behind it.
    • Given the nature of her abilities, it's no surprise that she wouldn't get along with Necromancers, as they basically do the same, only with dead people.
  • Even though people consider her to be one of the best doctors of her field, there is someone who would like to disagree with everybody and that one in particular is none other than Reaper. Apparently, Ziegler is responsible for the creation of Reaper and the details are fuzzy because Mercy is hesitant to explain what really happened. And Reaper refuses to let her live it down.
    Reaper: Don't forget, you're the one responsible for this.
  • Rumor says that she went to the same school as The Medic and graduated top of her class while the German doctor got his license revoked thanks to an incident she would rather not talk about. As such, she tends to butt heads with him over their different approach in medicine.
    • She would like you to know she is Swiss, not German. Just ignore her blonde hair, blue eyes and obvious German accent. She doesn't mind the confusion though, because German is one of the four official languages of Switzerland.
  • She often comes across as a very motherly figure to her peers, which prompts people to label her as the Team Mom. She is flattered by all that sweet comments she regularly gets, especially from the House of Children who look up to her. This might happen because she herself is an orphan, and wouldn't like other kids to grow up without a parent figure.
    • People often likes to pair her with Soldier: 76, but only if he is in his Dad: 76 mode.
  • Mercy opposes violence and killing, and is very advocate about her pacifism. As such, she befriended a lot of Pacifist people in the pantheon that share the same view as her.
  • Of her Overwatch colleagues, she is very close with Genji given that she was the one that saved him from the brink of death. Genji is very thankful towards Angela for saving him and is very glad that she was able to join him in the pantheon. People have said that they make a cute couple but so far they haven't commented about that.
    • Some say that Mercy took some "liberties" during Genji's reconstruction. Some say it's about his butt but she refuses to tell anybody if that event really happened, and usually gets rather nervous if she's ever 'caught in the act'.
      Mercy: Uh… um… G-Genji… I-I can explain…
  • Her angelic appearance is said to bring hope to the victims of war that she attends to if needed. When she met Tyrael the angel was immediately reminded of one of his fellow angels, Auriel, the archangel of Hope. They have become good friends after getting to know each other better.
    • She also befriended another angel in the form of Artina, who also happens to be a field medic as well. Artina has considered making Angela to be another angel when the times come but the doctor has told her that in the meantime she prefers to attend to the people that need her help.
    • Another Angel she befriended was Dokuro, who she found very peculiar. While Dokuro is able to ressurect people with a chant, she instead prefers to be more of a fighter than a healer. Mercy always tries to put her back on track but it's so far she is showing no sign of progression.
  • Doesn't really approve of Sirius after hearing how he has destroyed countless planets. Doesn't help that he also looks like a technological angel just like her.
  • Having lost her parents to war, Mercy is obviously against the idea that a house of War even exists. She understand that not everybody there are that bad - she's perfectly fine with the ordinary soldiers that exist in the house, and will willingly heal them - but she is absolutely disgusted about the warmongers that inhabit the house.
    • Though essentially the one warmonger she despises more out of anyone would be the god of war himself, Ares. He isn't very surprised to the slightest.
  • Often the target of unwanted jealousy from other goddesses of her age given how time has been kind to her. People wonder what her secret exactly but she isn't revealing it any time soon.
    • Even then, she is somewhat jealous of her colleague Mei, who hasn't aged a bit for about ten years. Though Mei is more straightforward with her answer.
      Mei: Cryostasis, but I'm not sure if I'd recommend it.
  • On the recommendation of Mei, Mercy became acquaintated as good friends with Litchi Faye-Ling as they tend to work together in the area of expertise, with Mercy also trying to console her about how she was trying to save her friend Lotte Carmine that became Arakune. On hearing that, Mercy immediately volunteers to help develop such cure. Her reason, aside of helping a good friend, was because the last time she did it, it went awry and then the terrorist Reaper was born.
  • Freya initially mistook her for a fellow Valkyrie, albeit one more unconventional than the rest. They became good friends and even sometimes, Mercy will don a special Valkyrie suit gifted from Freya herself.
    Mercy: Till Valhalla!
    • She also likes to be a little more devilish from time to time. Don't worry, she will still help you out… for a price.
    • There have also been reports of a version of her more evil around Halloween, using Reaper, Junkrat, Roadhog and eventually Symmetra as her minions. She would like Reinhardt to stop telling his tale.
      The Witch: My servants never die!!
  • Sometimes she gets too over the top when she's cosplaying and either brings up a horse, or sings Tenacious D's Pick of Destiny (those riffs were fucking tasty!) that her allies get a little creeped out.
  • "I'll be watching over you"

    Decidueye 
Decidueye, God of Feather Ammo (The Arrow Quill Pokémon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/724decidueye.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Decidium Z-Crystal
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Ability: Long Reach
  • Gender: Male
  • Moveset: Feather Dance, Spirit Shackle, Leaf Blade, Brave Bird
    • Z-Move: Sinister Arrow Raid
  • Portfolio: Archer Archetype, Feather Flechettes, Ghost Type Owl, Trick Arrow, Only User Of Sinister Arrow Raid And Spirit Shackle, Bow and Sword, in Accord, Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics, Feather Fingers, Proficient In All Stats, Formerly An Adorable Owl, Long-Range Fighter
  • Domains: Archery, Owls, Trees, Spirits, Aiming, Feathers
  • High Priest: Hawks
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Lugia and Ho-oh, Anivia, Trevenant, Poison Ivy, Wood Man, Clint Barton, Oliver Queen, Artemis, Lilo and Stitch
  • Rivals: Widowmaker, Lockon Stratos, Hanzo Shimada, Suigintou
  • Enemies: Ragyo Kiryuin, The Grand Duke of Owls, Mr Burns, Looten Plunder, Hexxus, Dameon Blackfyre
  • Opposes: House of Fire & Heat, Cryokinetics
  • Opposed by: Twitch, Chip and Dale
  • Decidueye, also known as the Arrow Quill Pokémon, is the final evolution of the Alola Grass starter Rowlet. A Grass/Ghost owl, it's an expert hunter who crafts arrows out of its own feathers. It does so with such precision that they can pierce a pebble at distances over a hundred yards, and fire the arrow within a tenth of a second. Though cool and cautious by nature, it can be easily surprised
  • Suigintou originally held Feather Flechettes, but Decidueye argued that since she had Perpetual Molt already and he's themed off an archer, she could share. Suigintou agreed, though the two still have a rivalry going on.
  • When it came to deciding a partner, Decidueye believed the choice came to two arrow experts; Clint Barton or Oliver Queen. He came to like Green Arrow more; it came down to the two having the similar Robin Hood aesthetic, who both were a fan of. Sometimes he'll help Robin Hood with his endeavors, especially if he gives the owl great game. However after more thought it decided best fit with Takumi. They're both kind of dicks before Character Development (Dartix are apparently known for being a bit moody compared to how Rowlet were adorably sweet. Takumi was also, according to all of his siblings and the Hoshidan characters who knew him, a pretty sweet kid before Fates started), incredibly good archers and both are ghosts.
  • Happens to be a ghost for some reason. It's believed that this is due to being based off the extinct stilt owl or pueo owl, a common form of ancestor spirits. He doesn't associate with the House of Ghosts however, due to being a Flying type as a Rowlet/Dartix and is still not comfortable with its ghostliness to deal with that ghost type weakness. It does associate with the same-typed Trevenant though.
  • An expert with the arrow, who's Feather Flechettes can alter their trajectory. With its signature Spirit Shackle Decidueye can Shadow Pin opponents, and its Z-Move of Sinister Arrow Raid releases a Rain of Arrows onto the opponent. Seeing all this triggered Dameon Blackfyre due to how he died, which went into full on antagonism when a rabbit it was hunting was caught by Daemon and squabbling over who should have it exploded from there.
  • Is rather close to the goddess Artemis. This comes down to her being the goddess of the hunt, a subject Decidueye has a deep affinity for.
  • An avid hunter, it came to little shock that it associated with the house of Hunters. He likes to compete with Widowmaker and Lockon Stratos for who's the superior sniper, and Hanzo Shimada for who's the better at arrows.
  • While owls are seen as wise creatures, the Rowlet line isn't that smart. Dartix in particular are rather ditzy creatures. It does have the expected diet, and as such caused trouble in the House of Mammals when trying to catch Twitch, Chip and Dale for dinner. The Court of the Gods told Decidueye not to do that again, but they're still upset about it. Decidueye is also annoyed to learn one of the only other owls in the pantheon is the evil Grand Duke of Owls.
  • As a member of Alola, Pokémon's answer to Hawaii, there's a kinship it shares with Lilo and Stitch. Its environment and typing leads to side with environmentalists, such as Poison Ivy and Wood Man; they may be evil, but they're protective of the forests is dwells in. Conversely Decidueye opposes polluters, and due to its typing would rather avoid ice or fire users.
  • Looks at Ragyo Kiryuin with utter contempt, and people are unclear why he feels that way asides from her general depraved nature. Research reveals this is because the main villain of Alola, Lusamine, is very similar to her.

    Miyabi 
Miyabi, Goddess of Wings-Granting Powers (The Bullish and Beastly Brandisher of Black Blazes, Miyamiya, Identity of Twisted Sorrow, BlackWingedAngel)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miyabi_sv.png
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate Goddess when activating Parasido of The Abyss/Divine Judgement or Blood Riot)
  • Symbol: A black Seven-Pronged Sword with a white snake wrapped around the blade and a crow resting on the hilt
  • Theme Music: Swear to Dougen, Machiavellism of Despair, Hope And Determination For Mother
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (not really)
  • Portfolio: Ice Queen, Dedicated to the Honor of Hebijo, Dark Flames, Top Student of Evil Shinobi, Masculine Women, Sought by Other Women, Cool Sword, White Hair, Black Heart
  • Domains: Shinobi, Darkness, Swords, Devotion, Masculinity
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Asuka, Homura, Yumi
  • Enemies: Orochi (for destroying the Hebijo Academy and being a yoma), traitors
  • Former Enemies: Every one from Hanzou Academy, Crimson Squad and Gessen Academy
  • The leader of the Elite Students of Hebijo Academy, Miyabi gained the spot after demonstrating the ability to pull out six black wings when activating her Ultimate Ninja Art "Parasido of The Abyss" (which also makes her sword longer), what later upgraded into "Divine Judgement, what gives her three black and three white wings (and turns her hair black besides one lock of white hair and gives big, floating sword). The first thing she did when ascending was mock Asuka, Homura and Yumi who ascended with her a bit for what they got. However, when hearing what she was suggested for the first place, she quickly shut her mouth.
  • It should be quickly stated that she is not outright evil. Her devotion is for Hebijo Academy of Evil Shinobi, who aren't as "evil" as one might think. Where she is willing to kill three factions worth of shinobi, its less because she herself is evil and more because she is that devoted. Especially if her father's job is in line. She is also devoted on killing the yoma for violently killing her mother right in front of her eyes. This is why she would rather avoid joining GUAE, as she explains:
    • However, as a side note, that doesn't mean that she doesn't consider her being evil at all. Just that she views herself as necessarily evil so that those who are righteous enough have someone to fight and grow stronger from.
    • Because of this, she has hard time finding proper allies. However, those who are her allies can rely on her easily.
  • She feels bit despaired that people still look at her like she was a man. Not helped that she shares her voice with such individuals like Grey and Mao.
    • She has gained sympathy of Makoto Kikuchi due of this. Though she is bit confused why any one would mistake her for man. Miyabi responded by saying "Its less 'being confused to a man' and 'Every one views you as a man'".
    • And for her misery, she has noticed that her "I Heart Miyabi Militia" fan club isn't going away anytime soon. She is going to find a way to be more feminine, dammit!
    • She seems to take some comfort for the fact that the DOA girl who took her costume wasn't a complete tomboy. Or a guy.
    • However, she eventually had a turnaround on the way she views herself and has accepted her "hunkiness". In fact, she seems to want to be the hunkiest girl around. Though she doesn't still like having girls fawning over her.
  • A lot of gods who are known to leave a mess tend to stay away for Miyabi due of her "Blood Riot" technique, what allows her to draw in all the blood splattered in the surrounding to power herself up. However, she is also cautious about using her, because the "Riot" part is rather precise, and the first time she used it left her hospitalised for years.
  • Jurai Andou sort of admires her dark power and wishes to improve himself with her. She herself is indifferent on him, though his naming methods remind her of an event regarding her name theming she doesn't want to discuss about.
  • She finds similarities between herself and Stella, like how their fathers both worked on a school they went, their school got destroyed at one point and they have been trying to recover their school's honour (though not in that order). Miyabi believes that Stella can rebuilt her school and make it even better.
  • Solo tried to approach her, due of feeling like they have thing in common. However, where Miyabi admires his devotion to his past, she cannot feel like disagree that you still need some people to help you.

    Nue Houjuu 
Nue Houjuu, Goddess of Wings on Humanoids (The Unidentified Fantastic Flying Girl, U.F.O-wen)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_th12nue.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Multi-coloured UFO
  • Theme Song: "Heian Alien"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Hiding True Nature of Objects, Flying Saucer, Urban Legend, Screwy Squirrel, Recurring Boss (also Bonus Boss), Fashionably Asymmetric Wings, Zettai Ryouiki, Voluntary Shapeshifting, Species Given Name, Prongs of Poseidon, Monochromatic Eyes, Sabotage for fun (She regret it though), Being seal before, Doppelgänger Attack
  • Domains: Mentality, Wings, Illusions
  • Allies: Byakuren Hijiri, Mamizou Futatsuiwa
  • Worked with: Yukari Yakumo
  • Complicated relationship: Kurama
  • Feared by: Ragna the Bloodedge, Mako Reizei
  • Fears: Anybody with sealing technique
  • Opposed by: Death the Kid (her wings aren't symmetrical)
  • One day, mysterious objects kept appearing everywhere. A rock floating in midair, a flying snake, a UFO that can absorb small items, etc... While most people were off trying to figure what out what it was all about, Reimu Hakurei just sighed, broke open one such object, followed the thing inside it to the source and immediately found Nue, a follower of Byakuren Hijiri, in her temple. After a good old fashioned beatdown and questioning, she revealed to have been invited here by Yukari Yakumo, and had herself ascended properly.
  • There have been debates about having her replace Giygas as some felt her powers fit the trope to a T, while others object because he's, after all, the Trope Namer. When asked about this, she said she doesn't really care what her title is, as long as she's free to do what she does best.
  • She said she came here in exchange for a certain favour. She won't tell what it was though.
  • After finding out how her powers work, some people have come to asked for Seeds of Non-identification. She said she'd give some away if they could beat her. So far, not many have been able to claim one. Even those few eventually realize Nue only gives away fakes. Marisa Kirisame has one of the very few real ones, and she responds to anyone begging for it with a Master Spark. How anyone dare think those things are easy to get.
  • As a Nue, she have come to many place in the Pantheon to scare people left and right. Apparently, it's a very successful job.
    • One of her most successful attempts was when she disguised herself as a ghost and come to Ragna the Bloodedge and Mako Reizei, together. Before she even managed to let out a "boo", both of them screamed like little girls, hugging each other. Mako immediately fainted while Ragna managed to fight off his scare, grab her in a Bridal Carry and run like hell. Since then, some gods have been looking at them with warm eyes, though some others find it disturbing.
      • Because of that, the Anglerfish's team are attempt to rally the whole group together to combat hers if such incident repeats.
  • Allies with Byakuren Hijiri as she regrets having sabotaged her followers' effort to release her. So aside from her own temple, she often hangs out at the Myouren Temple.
  • Called her old friend Mamizou Futatsuiwa in a failed attempt to block Toyosatomimi no Miko's resurrection. Even if they didn't manage to do so, they commiserated with a grand bar crawl.
  • Recently, she entered the Men In Black's custody, accused of "illegal extraterrestrial immigration". Thank to her friend's connections, she managed to prove herself a genuine Youkai, even if her Leitmotif said otherwise, and was set free. She's still in their watch, though
  • Like her title implied, it's a wonder how she could fly with her strange, misshapen wings, just like Flandre Scarlet. Then again, everyone from Gensokyo can fly, so scientists have been observing both of them hoping to find how those wings work with no success. Nue and Flandre just either troll or blast the hell out of them.
  • Her relationship with Kurama is complicated. On one hands, she sympathizes with him as she also a monster being seal by humans for being who they are (though for a slightly different reason). On the other hand, Mamizou doesn't like the fox very much.
  • Tends to avoid any deity with sealing abilities, since she doesn't want to be confined again.

    Suigintou 
Suigintou, Goddess of Ever-Shedding Wings (1st Rozen Maiden, Mercury Lamp, Angel, Black Rose Sister)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/34a0d39df3f931f6acc354ee624bf04f.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Perpetually-shedding black wings and an upside-down cross
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Winged Humanoid Dolls, Beta Test Baddies, Big Bads with Tragic Pasts, Giggling Villains, Morph Weapons, Deadly Combat, Feather Flechettes, Doing Evil Actions for Love
  • Domains: Competition, Darkness, Magic, Pain, Dolls
  • Medium: Alice Margatroid
  • Allies: Banette, Carl and Ada Clover, Haruka, E-123 Omega, Kyurem, Lieselotte Achenbach, Suiseiseki and Souseiseki
  • Enemies: The crew of Toy Story, Relius Clover, The Other Mother
  • Sympathizes with: Copy X, Liquid Ocelot
  • Though they're not her followers, Suigintou has been accepting doll masters who wish to admire her structure into her temple, as long as they don't call her JUNK.
  • Spent a year battling other dolls non-stop until her previous master (a woman named Tomoe Marguerite) was kicked out for good (Suigintou was more than happy when that happened, since the master frequently referred to her and the other Maidens as junk while practicing her wicked laugh, which she considers an insult to both her giggle and voice). She now does the bidding of a puppeteer who claims to be the "true" overseer of the "Alice game".
    • ... Well, not really, since the Alice Game is sort of over. Alice is really interested in Rozen Maidens due of her desire to create living dolls, but not in the same way as Rozen. Still, she does want to help Suigintou the best ways she can.
  • No one is sure what she thinks about Carl and Ada Clover, Alice's closest allies. However, most gods think that pressing her Berserk Button (calling her "Junk") and Carl's Berserk Button (Calling Ada "Nirvana", saying that she is a doll or that she is not his sister) at the same time would end really horribly.
    • However, after she heard that Relius basically abandoned Ada for the simple fact that he couldn't make her the way he wanted and his plans to create the "perfect doll", she became enraged at the puppeteer due of her own past, and swore to help Carl. She also has a dislike for The Other Mother due the fact that Rozen created the Rozen Maidens and made them fight so that they can replace his daughter.
  • After her current master, Alice, was forming "The Grand Puppeteer Court", she assigned Suigintou as the Marionette Buddy since she had to add the aforementioned Ada into the group. She is clad that the other puppeteers in the group (the aforementioned Carl, Haruka and Uncle Howee) treat her with proper care.
  • Apparently likes to mock those weaker than her by asking if they have been taking their lactic acid bacteria. Some also claim that she likes to drink yakult due of that.
  • Used to be the Goddess of Living Dolls, but because there wasn't really good way to define her due of that, she was instead given a way to stay due of her wings, amusingly. While she doesn't need her wings to fly, she can fire feathers as projectile, make them grow giant size to both attack and defend herself, stone objects inside them and even turn them into dragons.
  • She seems to have an interesting relation with S.E.E.S. Because based on whom you ask, she either sounds like Mitsuru Kijiro, Fuuka Yamagishi or Aigis.
  • She sympathizes with those who are driven into villainy (or just driven) due of the feeling of being incomplete and that is the reason why she wants to become Alice to please Rozen due of her feeling incomplete (as in one world, Suigintou lacked an abdomen as she was given life before Rozen could have finished her).
    • Though just because Suigintou isn't "incomplete" in the Pantheon, that doesn't mean she doesn't have her problems, as she bears the sins of Rozen and the rest of the dolls for the fact that Rozen rebelled against God by creating life. And since she wasn't the result he wanted, she was a "failure". In both cases, she wanted to become Alice to get Father's love.
  • She is sometimes seen in GUAG Medical Division, almost as a way to remind herself of now dead Megu. Most people who spot her seem to want to call her an angel, which does still annoy her a bit.
