    Cia and Lana 
Cia and Lana, Goddesses of Good And Evil Witch Rivalries (Cia: The Dark Sorceress | Lana: The White Sorceress)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cia_and_lana.png
Left: Cia | Right: Lana
  • Theme: Eclipse of the Moon, (Cia)
  • Intermediate Goddesses
  • Symbol: Their hairclip and headdress respectively
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (Cia) | Neutral Good (Lana)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Magic, Morality, Opposition
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • They both ascended here after their conflict ended. They had fought each other in a Hyrulean war opposite each other as Lana is the good half of Cia forced out of her.
    • Now that they are both in the pantheon Lana keeps requesting peace and at least Cia seems sorrowful and does admit Lana to Lana being the better person.
  • Lana is glad to see Agitha in the pantheon, who aided Lana after she saved her. She's also happy to see Midna even if the two didn't have a good first encounter.
  • Lana gets along with Sayaka Miki very well because of their similarities, part of which is their failure in pursuing love and how Sayaka's fate reminds Lana too much of Cia's.
  • Interestingly, both of them oppose Ganondorf. Lana because of her morals and Cia because she wants to see Link be hers, not dead.
    • Cia hates Ganondorf more than Lana does. Not helped by the fact that her forces were Hijacked by Ganon, and is the cause of most of her problems.
    • Cia also hates Master Xehanort. Not only does he remind her a bit too much of Ganon, but like what Ganondorf did to Cia, Xehanort removed a part of Ventus from him. Though while Cia's light was forced out and became Lana, Ventus's darkness was essentially ripped out, horrifically damaging his heart in the process, and became Vanitas. Lana opposes the old Keyblade Master on similar grounds.
  • Cia is bitter at Zant and Ghirahim as they failed her and now serve Ganondorf instead of her.
  • One of the most notable aspects of Cia is her infatuation with Link. She decorates the Temple of Souls with art dedicated to him, (including his Wolf and Young Link incarnations) and can summon 'several' Dark Links from him.
  • Some grew worried that Lana would go to down the same path as Cia when she was seen wearing Majora's mask though she assures others that it's just a replica. Lana however, is not sure about the mask Cia was wearing.

  • Portfolio: Action Girl, Military Brat, Being Together With Squall, Gaining Wings With Magic Powers, Powerful Sorceress, Using a Dog for Combat, Feather Motif, Taking Her Mom's Last Name, Spoiled Sweet
  • Domain: Magic, Heroes, Power.

  • Allies: Squall Leonhart, Laguna Loire, Yuna, Tifa Lockhart, Kairi, Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Yang Xiao Long, Zelda, Twilight Sparkle
  • Mentor: Doctor Strange
  • Enemies: Ultimeca, Sephiroth, Kuja, Kefka Palazzo, Ragyo Kiryuin, Lord Tirek
  • Rivals: Kasumi, Ayane, Hitomi
  • In the world of Final Fantasy VIII, there is a very special kind of witch race called Sorceresses, who are able to use magic naturally and are more powerful than Para-Magic. This is possible because Sorceresses posess power from their world deity named Hyne. A Sorceress's power can pass down to potential Sorceress when they are at the end of their lives, and the latest inheritor of that great power is Rinoa Heartilly, whose potential hasn't even been reached yet.
  • No one was more happier for Rinoa's ascension then the normally stoic Squall Leonhart. Or to be more specific, Rinoa descended down to Squall's welcoming arms like an angel. Lucina thought it was cute.
    • Now that the two are finally together, Rinoa has been doing her best in helping him mingle more around the Pantheon, to the amusement of others.
  • Seeing that she has much potential as a magic user, Steven Strange himself has become Rinoa's mentor in better handling her powers. So far Rinoa has gained the ability to grow a pair of white angel wings and fly. Not only that, her magic has increased to the point of functioning very differently than they were in her own world. Still, heavy use will leave her very exhausted afterward.
  • While Rinoa has been using her magic more, she still relies on her Blaster Edge and the use of her dog companion Angelo (who, for the record, is a female). She has been thinking of taking up the use of the Gunblade, but decided against that since it might take years to master it. Still, she might settle for a simple sword…
  • Once mistook Ragyo Kiryuin for an evil Sorceress after seeing her in this and in this. The last one making her remember that awful time when she was absorbed in Adel. She became sick when she found out what she was going to do to the Earth and what she did to her two daughters.
  • Many deities believe that Rinoa is Ultimecia. This is despite the fact that Ultimecia come from way in the future. Others will counter maybe she is immortal. And others will argue why would Rinoa want to destroy her friends in the first place. And then there are those who are convince Greiver is really Squall transformed into a Guardian Force. Many hours have been spent on this argument.
  • Became very close friends with Team RWBY. For Ruby and Yang, it's because they both own and love an awesome dog. For Blake, it's for their love of books. And Weiss, it's for both having family issues dealing with their fathers. She shared in their mourning of the passing of their creator.
  • While close with many ascended FF deities, she is special close towards Yuna and Tifa Lockhart after the three fought against Kasumi, Ayane, and Hitomi that one time. Also, many have noticed that she and Tifa kind of look like each other.
  • Loves to visit the House of Knowledge because of its large collection of books. Sometimes she spends hours reading before falling asleep in which Squall has to carry her home.
  • Found common grounds with Zelda because both have powers descended from their universe's Gods.

Sabrina Spellman, Goddess of Witches With Feline Companions (Sabrina Sawyer, Kirby)

  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: Her silhouette with white hair
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, but can slips into Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Naïve Everygirl, Plucky Girl, being half-human in a Witch Species, Badass Adorable, Cute Witch, Extraordinarily Empowered Girl, has a Missing Mom, Inept Mage because she is Brilliant, but Lazy and has to fix her problem
  • Domain: Magic, Family, Love, Personality, Profession
  • Heralds: Harvey Kinkle, Hilda and Zelda Spellman (her aunts)
  • Followers: Morwen,
  • Allies: Her cat Salem Saberhagen, Frank West, Lois Lane, Jade, Inuyasha, Sonic, Kiki, Coraline Jones and Chihiro Ogino
  • Enemies: LIBBY CHESSLER, CTHULHU, any evil deities in the Magic house, Nyarlathotep, HP Lovecraft, Cheryl Blossom, Arthas Menethil, Taria de Castillo.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Philemon
  • Conflicting Opinion: Archie Andrews, Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper (mostly from their side)
  • Opposed by: Lee Everett and Clementine (mostly from their side)
  • Pitited by: Tallahassee, Jaina Proudmore
  • People wonder how her position works, as they point out that Salem also has a temple of his own while he is by default required to be on her side most of the time. She solves this problem by taking Salem's lesser known comicbook version to her temple while let the live-action version to manage his own temple.
  • Asked for help from the House of Health and Disease to figure out what mitosis is.
  • Tries to stay away from Libby Chessler as far as possible after their ascension. However, this proves to be futile as Libby actively seeks out Sabrina to torment her. Although Libby is confused about Sabrina position, she still taunting Sabrina anyway because of the effect from the Status Quo (and just because).
  • Strikes up a friendship with Inuyasha due to their experience of being discriminate because of being a Half-Human Hybrid. She wished him the best and hopes for Kagome's effort to rescue him.
  • Became friends with fellow journalists in the Pantheon like Lois Lane, Jade, April O'Neil and Frank West over their love for journalism. However, they expressed that they think it might effect journalistic integrity given the fact that Sabrina is a witch. She responds by saying that she will only reports news from the magic world and let them handle the rest.
  • Her life has been... interesting after the discovery of an alternative universe in which she unwittingly triggered a Zombie Apocalypse and was sent to Purgatory by her own aunts due to her recklessness.
    • Sabrina's initial action after this discovery is to plunges into a deep depression and hides alone in her temple for days because of how much tragedy her action cost. It took a pep talk from Salem and a visit from her aunts for her show her face out of the outside world.
      • During her crisis, she was visited by Arthas Menethil who tried to convince Sabrina to embrace her dark side like he did in order to develop this power further while also suggests that his faction always welcomes a good necromancy-related magic user with open arms and maybe a new Lich King / Queen... only for her to throws his words back to his face by saying that she would never work for the forces of darkness and points out that at her worst, this version of her only turned to necromancy out of a well-meaning action to resurrect her friend Jughead's dog. Arthas's action drew Sabrina and Jaina closer together as the latter cannot believe that he would stoop so low to exploit a teenager at her weakest moment.
    • Her action from this timeline caused her former friends Archie, Betty and Veronica to become wary of her after her ascension while Cheryl Blossom outright declares her to be an enemy. While Cheryl's official reason if that she is upset because she was forced to flee Riverdale because of Sabrina and, unlike the rest of her friends, she doesn't really know enough about Sabrina as a person to sympathize with her, most deities think it is because she is rightfully Squicked out because of her "relationship" with her twin brother Jason in this timeline, as well as his death (whatever the heck that caused it).
    • Her action also earned the ire of Lee Everett and Clementine as they had first hand knowledge of how harsh such apocalypse can affect a person. The only zombie-related person that support her is Tallahassee, and that mostly because she reminds him of Witchita and Little Rock from his world and feels pity for her because of the Heroic BSoD she went through.
    • After this discovery, she has been seeking help from the House of Magic to stop things like this from happen ever again.
    • Was horrified when she discovered that her action also cost the awakening of Cthulhu and she was forced to his bride. This caused her to be wary of ever come close to the vicinity of the House of Otherness. She also became wary of Lovecraft after encountering a doctor with the same last name at him in Purgatory.
    • Her action of awakening Cthuhlu attracts the attention of Nyarlathotep who saw what kind of Chaos Sabrina is capable of and seeks to corrupt her into working for him. This caused her to enter an uneasy alliance with Philemon in order to keep Nyarly at bay.
  • Was NOT pleased when she heard a predator has ascended into the Pantheon. While somewhat relief that it is different from the one that killed her, Sabrina still doesn't take any chance.
  • Don Draper went after her for some reason, as he sees Sabrina as looking like his daughter Sally. They have since built a good relationship - after all, Sabrina has no father figure, and Don wants to make up for his old parenting mistakes.

    The Wicked Witch of the West 
Wicked Witch of the West, the Wicked Witch That Threatens Loved Ones (Theodora, Zelena)

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her broomstick and green skin and hat

  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil

  • Domains: Evil, Witch

  • The Pantheon was going about its usual day until an evil cackle and thunder struck in the Pantheon. From the smoke appeared the Wicked Witch of the West who wants to cause trouble in the Pantheon. When she finds herself to be outnumbered, she retreats before warning her enemies: "I'll get you my pretties, and all of you loved too!" and laughs before disappearing.
  • She once mistaken one of the versions of Brightwing as one of her flying monkey minions, only to find her eating one.
  • She has one weakness: water, which causes her to melt. She is trying to nullify her weakness as she found out that the Pantheon holds many adepts of water and sea creatures and could easily defeat her.
  • Many dog lovers and deified dogs were against her when she tells Dorothy that she'll get her along with her dog too.
  • She is deemed an enemy by every good witches in the Pantheon. The Wicked Witch considered them the "Good Witches" of the Pantheon and she is looking for other evil witches as the "Wicked Witch" of the Pantheon as the anti-thesis of the witches.
  • She took great notice to Elphaba, who claims to be the Wicked Witch of the West. It is hypothetical that she would be the Bad Future Version of her. She wants to make her "wicked" because she believes that it is destiny for her to fulfill her role as the Wicked Witch of the West and to be evil.
  • She is irritated by how many people are dressing up like her because she codified the concept of classic witches.
  • One of her miniature self has fought both the Batman and Gandalf.
  • The Critic once said how men were oblivious to sexual advances with women, with the Wicked Witch as the example. She tried to harass a guard, the Critic himself, and even Mark. Ironically, Mark was the one to notice and say this was sexual harassment and leaves, much to the confusion of the Witch.
  • She sometimes mistaken some red heels as the ruby slippers that were worn by her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East. She tried to take them from girls like Rei Hino and Jessica Rabbit. When warded away, she vow to retrieve them as only she knows how the slippers work, despite looking at the wrong thing.
  • She hates thing that are dropped down on people, considering that the Wicked Witch of the East was killed by Dorothy's falling house. It doesn't matter what is being dropped, just dropping them is what would anger her.
  • She remembers the time when she was defeated by Tom & Jerry, who apparently went to the Land of Oz.
  • There was once a nerd that dreamed of going to Oz and defeating the Witch. Though the dream has Eric Draven and Optimus Prime in place of the Scarecrow and the Tinman respectively.

    Zatanna Zatara 
Zatanna Zatara, Goddess of Wizards Disguised as Magicians (Zatanna, The Mistress of Magic, Zee)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zattana1_1596.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Magician Hat with the letter "Z" in it.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Wizards-as-Magicians, Magician Detectives, Women Who Provide Fanservice, Lack of Secret Identity, Always Wearing Stocking Filler, Hot Witches, Escapists, Backward Magic Words.
  • Domains: Sorcery, Stage Magic, Legacy, Fanservice, Superheroics.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Former Enemy: John Constantine, Draco Malfoy, Trixie.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Homura Akemi.
  • Complicated Relationship: Nabu/Doctor Fate
  • Out of the superheroes in the Pantheon, Zatanna Zatara is one of the most peculiar examples. Unlike most superheroes, people not only know her secret identity but also uses it for a profit. That hasn't stopped for from fighting crime or joining the Justice League. The magician was honored to be among her peers and providing a legacy that matches that of her late father.
    • Was previously deemed for the God of Stage Magic, but an upstager named Oscar Diggs snuck under her to claim it. However, Oz is impressed with her welcome and they're good friends. They occasionally work together in show magic in conjunction or to one-up one another.
    • She also has to compete with Barney Stinson, who would very much prefer the company of villains. But unlike Oscar, she is usually able to outstage him.
  • Is well known amongst her peers in The DCU, but a few stand out:
    • The one with the most history with her is John Constantine. The two have dated various times, with Zatanna wondering how she ended up roped up with him every time. Yet she does admit he has a style that is irresistible. Otherwise, the two team-up in many occult missions, most notably when they formed their own superhero team.
    • Is also good friends with psychic Madame Xanadu. Of course things are complicated with Constantine because Xanadu hates his guts. Expect her to be mediator whenever the two are together.
    • She has been familiar with the Swamp Thing since the days of working under her father. This culminated with their teamwork in Justice League Dark.
    • Is part of Batman's long list of lovers. Having known each other from childhood, the two are usually on good terms with each other. The Dark Knight tends to turn to her whenever magic is involved in his cases.
      • The one time when they had a falling out was in one case when she decided to wipe Dr. Light's memories. When Batman refused to go through with it, she wiped his mind too. This extended to other members of the villain world, Catwoman among them. This caused a bunch of problems down the road that ended with Batman dismissing her. While the two heroes made up, Catwoman has yet to forgive her for the Mind Rape. This rivalry is further complicated with Selina's own feeling for Bruce. Zee was forced to place a restraining order on Catwoman to prevent further beatings. She does hope that the two can resolve their differences one day.
    • As a fellow fan of fishnets, she has a natural bond with Black Canary. The two make a good fit; Canary works great up close while Zee can wreck havoc from afar. Some villains joke that the two can be neutralized the same way by having them Bound and Gagged. Zatanna countered that she has ways around it; she's a skilled escape artist. Even then, she has a red belt in Martian Karate and has shown ways to use her magic without her mouth.
    • Has a strange relationship with Doctor Fate. She's worked with him before, and even been tutored by him in magic as his assistant in one universe, but since one version of him took her father as a host, she's been wary of him, despite Kent Nelson taking the role and the fact that her father is currently deceased.
  • Zatanna sees herself as the DC representative of magical superheroes. This has put her in the company of Doctor Strange. While flustered by her presence, their relationship is mainly platonic.
  • While she can technically cast multiple forms of magic, her main focus is that of somatic black magic, making her a typical Lady of Black Magic. As such, she had allied herself with Jaina Proudmore. She also came to the blonde's aid when she went through some rough times in her world.
  • Now in the Pantheon, she has extended her heroics against other sorcerers in the Pantheon. Among the ones that has set their eyes on her are Quan Chi and Shinnok, both of which are wary of her powerful magic.
  • She took a softer method when it came to Draco Malfoy. Initially angry with what he has done, she felt a bit of pity of what he went through in life. Eventually, she went over to tutor the man in the ways of magic. She figured this would be the best way to steer him away from the teachings of Voldemort.
  • Nine the Phantom employs many enemy magical supervillains that Zee has to fight against in her world. And yet Zatanna has yet to be able to pin her alignment. She understands the witch's desire to make amends with her daughter, but she could not condone her current actions in doing so.
  • Appeared in an alternate universe, where Superman jumped the slippery slope and becomes a tyrant who reigns with iron hand. In said universe, she keeps prisoners in the Tower of Fate after the Regime's downfall when a jury recommends the death penalty. She didn't take it well.
    • She's not happy to see said version of Superman in the Pantheon. Fortunately, the Superman she knows best is still a reliable teammate.
  • Has taken note not to go anywhere near Lord Tirek. While her magic is word-based, there is still the chance that the unicorn could absorb that talent from her.
    • Also among those in the My Little Pony universe, she had been bugged by Trixie to become a protege. Knowing that the pony only wanted to use that skill to overthrow Twilight Sparkle, Zee refused. It was only after Trixie had a bit of a change of heart that Zatanna reluctantly agreed to show her a couple tips.
  • "Magic is easy like one... two... three!"
