    Celestial Toymaker 
The Celestial Toymaker, God of Wicked Toymakers (The Guardian of Dreams, the Crystal Guardian, The Mandarin, The Cosmic Puppeteer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/celestialtoymaker_3782.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: A bunch of large toys
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Humanoid Abomination, Wicked Toymaker, Bends Reality, Stays In His "Toyroom", Motivated By Boredom, Psychopathic Manchild, Heads I Win, Tails You Lose, Ever Polite, Bored By Immortality, Physical God
  • Domains: Games, Toys, Reality Warping, Power, Childishness
  • High Priest: Dr. Wondertainment
  • Followers: Sugar, Winslow Schott, Andre Toulon, Urfin Jus
  • Banned from: The House of Gaming
  • Interests: Slappy the Dummy
  • Respects: Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson
  • Allies: Mr. Mxyzptlk, Akihiko Kayaba, Daniel D'arby
  • Enemies: The SCP Foundation, Clark Kent/Superman, The toys from Toy Story, most toy deities, Nobuyuki Sugou, Bob and George
  • The Celestial Toymaker is an enigmatic and extraordinarily powerful, yet childish being who resides in his own dimension known as the Celestial Toyroom. He abducts people to play his games, usually with big toys and large scale games. If he wins, the losers become his toys. If he loses, he destroys the toy room. The Toymaker can survive this and recreate his realm, but good luck surviving it.
  • Was supposed to meet the Doctor again, but the sequel to "The Celestial Toymaker" never got made. He has shown up in the expanded universe, though. Various origins have been given to him-a member of the Guardians of Time, originating from another universe, what can be agreed on is that he's not in any way human. And he entered the pantheon because, like his games, it's a way to entertain him from the boredom of eternal life.
  • Though amused greatly by the Trope Pantheon, the Celestial Toymaker isn't interested in taking sides with the various alliance leaders. Cosmos and Melkor are relieved and frustrated respectively that he doesn't use his powers for more evil. However, the Toymaker does respect the creators of Dungeons & Dragons, as it is a game he has enjoyed playing and it forms the basis of the pantheon he finds amusing.
  • As the true nature of the Toymaker is up for debate, and he's a Humanoid Abomination who turns people into his toys if they lose, the SCP Foundation regards him as an anomalous threat to normalcy. While his patterns are predictable and there are more active threats, they as still working to contain him, especially after his comment that some of the SCPs could be interesting to play with. The Toymaker is most interested in Dr. Wondertainment's propensity for dangerous toys, and has made them his high priest.
  • Wishes to play with the Doctor again, however his grabbing of the TARDIS was intercepted by Rick's portal gun. Finding him just as intelligent, he forced Rick to play a game of Trilogic. As he rare has to fight reality warpers, he instead focused on manipulating the Toymaker's ego and desire for a Worthy Opponent to distract him long enough to escape once he finished the game(the portal gun wasn't working as well in the Toymaker's presence). All while pretending he's not as good at it than he seems to keep the charade up. Though he acted crassly, the Toymaker enjoyed his moxie and considered him a Worthy Opponent.
  • Bob and George had the misfortune of their dimensional jump leading them to the Toyroom. Bob made a bargain that they get to choose the game, that being the original 6 Mega Man video games. In addition, it must happen within the narrative of Bob and George. The Toymaker only accepted if the stakes were raised higher; if they lose, he's going to bring in all their friends and he will make the rules then. They won because of their experience, and the Celestial Toymaker destroyed the realm. However as it took within the actual webcomic, they miraculous escaped with space-time shenanigans since the title characters can't be killed off.
  • The next on the Toymaker's list of those to kidnap was the Man of Steel himself. This immediately got Mr. Mxyzptlk's attention because Superman is his to play with and troll. The imp's fifth-dimensional powers proved completely overpowering to the Celestial Toymaker, and he had to concede. However, on observing his antics, Mxy became fond of him because they're like two peas in a pod; phenomenally powerful, mostly amoral beings who love to play around with people. The two departed on good terms, with hopes for a friendly game between the two and learning new ways to have fun; no risks involved.
  • Most of the toys in the pantheon are creeped out by the Celestial Toymaker due to his turning people into his toys and playthings when they lose, undoubtedly a Fate Worse than Death. The toys of Toy Story think his "playtime" is every kind of messed up. Slappy the Dummy, however, likes the way he plays with people's lives and wants to play a role. The Toymaker just sees Slappy as uncouth. Unlike the dummy, he is nothing but polite.
  • The Celestial Toymaker has been unanimously banned from the House of Gaming, in fear he will try to turn the house into his new toy room. People from the house are still allowed to visit him, but so far the only one who even dared was Akihiko Kayaba. Mainly because the Toymaker had no intention of putting him in a game, as he respects his handiwork with SAO and his Game Master roles. Akihiko is wary around the Toymaker, though it's difficult to say he has a moral high ground and the Toymaker will play ball around him because of the aforementioned respect.
  • Though a Sore Loser, the Celestial Toymaker abides by a certain set of rules. He has little patience for cheaters either. Despite his otherwise amoral personality, he considers Nobuyuki Sugou to be trash. To convince him to behave himself with the ban, they handed Sugou to him to torment. Sugou lost and became the Toymaker's toy, a truly horrible fate, but nobody cared. The Toymaker eventually got bored and threw him away.
  • While he doesn't like cheaters, the Celestial Toymaker does tolerate it from Daniel D'arby as he proves classy and clever about it. Just as long as he gets to be classy and clever cheating too; it's only fair. Daniel accepted, and though he lost, the Toymaker had such fun he decided not to make him his toy and instead let him go so they can have normal gambling sessions. The elder D'arby brother can count himself lucky the Toymaker was in a good mood, and Telence suspects he wouldn't be able to pull the same stunt on the Toymaker.

    Destruction of the Endless 
Destruction of The Endless, God of Creative Sterility (Olethros)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/destruction_endless_final_6235.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: A pool of water and a sword, against a red background.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, with Chaotic Good leanings.
  • Portfolio: Giftedly Bad, Walking the Earth, Nice Anthropomorphic Personifications, Inverted Middle Child Syndrome, Red Is Heroic, former Destroyer Deity
  • Domains: Destruction, Creation, Change, Art, Travel
  • Allies: The other Endless, everyone who has Walked The Earth to find themselves, Wreck-It Ralph, Satan Jacob, Nero Germanicus, BRIAN BLESSED
  • Enemies: Almost none; few would survive truly angering him. That being said, he's on bad terms with the Lich, Fenrir and Melkor
  • Respects: Anyone who has sworn off a "noninterference" clause to help or meet those below them, such as Tyrael
  • Disrespects: The Grand United Alliance of Destruction, Father Homunculus, abusive siblings.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Beerus
  • In the universe's infancy, the basic aspects and patterns of the universe would manifest into sentient beings. They would be known as the Endless, and the fourth of their number would be Destruction. For billions of years he would serve as an agent of change, but eventually wished to retire from his role, seeking to explore the flip side of the Endless; for him, the subject of creation. Easily the most beloved of the Endless; even Desire respected him. Most gods are generally on good terms with him, and it's considered really poor to piss him off.
  • The pantheon was fascinated by the fact an Endless could leave their role, leading some thoughts as to whether other Endless could have their power taken away. All Grand Alliances are considering this covertly, even the GUAG in case they have no other options. It hasn't gotten anywhere though.
  • Is on good terms with Wreck-It Ralph, due to their mutual poor skills at creating things. Friends with Satan Jacob, due to having adopted a simple life from a formerly godly title.
  • Conflicted on Beerus. While he represents destruction and understands he has to do his duty, he is disturbed by the God of Destruction's tendency to destroy planets. Beerus respects him, however, regarding Destruction as a mentor of sorts like Whis.
  • It's believed that when Destruction of the Endless left his role, Fenrir would try to fill the hole. Destruction isn't pleased by Fenrir's desire to destroy everything forever and has warned the wolf not to try and break creation again. Fenrir has listened to him for the moment. Also does not like the GUAD. Destruction is ultimately a force of change, and it as much about creation as destruction. They're a perversion of the act in his eyes, and he doesn't want anything to do with them.
  • One of the main reasons why Destruction left his role was due to the coming of the Age of Reason, eventually leading to the invention of the atomic bomb. Destruction didn't want any part in it. Naturally, he's pretty disturbed about the Lich, being the worst nuclear weapons have to offer.
  • Due to representing both Destruction and Creation, the Alliances have all made it a top priority to either get him on their side or at least keep him away from the other sides, since he has abandoned the usual duties of the Endless, which prevent them from directly involving themselves, most of the time.
  • Not usually found in the Pantheon, due to the other members of the Endless often being present, instead, going on the road to view the world(s). He has so far not expressed any interest in joining any of the Grand Alliances or a specific group but is often willing to aid anyone who stops by his residence.
  • Has decided to explore the other side of his abilities in the form of creation, leading him to Walking the Earth. Problem is, he's really bad at it. Part of his nature makes him bad at creativity. He still tries, of course. He and Nero became friends as they're both Giftedly Bad. It's rather ironic that despite being bad at crafts, he's by far the strongest god in the House of Crafts. As he has a role with creation along with destruction, Nekron has placed him as one of the possible suspects for where the Life Entity. He finds it more likely that his sister Death is the source, but is in enough trouble as it is with her and has less to worry about if he bothers Destruction.
  • Melkor could be considered somewhat of a Foil to Destruction of the Endless. Both suffer from Creative Sterility, but they have completely different personalities about it. While Destruction is a Nice Guy, Melkor let his contempt for lacking Eru's creative spark poison his soul, becoming the Greater-Scope Villain for all Arda. The Dark Lord once challenged him in order to invade and destroy his house, which resulted in Melkor being thrown around the Pantheon like a rag doll. Destruction has warned him never to enter the House of Craft again
  • Resembles BRIAN BLESSED a lot. It's currently unknown whether Destruction based his appearance on him or BRIAN BLESSED on Destruction. Hell, it could be both. Also had a talking dog called Barnabus. He's since given him to Delirium to look after her.

  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Wicked Witch, Living Drawing, Evil Laugh, Art Initiates Life, Generic Doomsday Villain

  • Drawcia is a sorceress born from a mysterious painting and sought to turn the whole world around her into a painting. After Dream Land turned into a world of paint, Kirby clashed with Drawcia, but ended up getting turned into a ball in the process and had to traverse through many different worlds before catching up to her and undoing all the damage she caused. One of her tools at her disposal is the Magical Paintbrush, which ended up helping Kirby in his quest and while she does appear as a witch at first glance, she’ll transform into a nightmarish blob of paint in an effort to destroy anyone that opposes her.
  • A strange painting appeared in the Pantheon one day, with no one having any idea where it originated from. Someone thought it was a good idea to make a profit out of it and decided to have it be an item at an auction. The event was going smoothly until the painting itself was ready to be auctioned off. As the number of bids increased, the painting was starting to act strangely and just as the patrons were about to notice what was wrong, a sorceress emerged from the art and proceeded to turn her surroundings into a painting. News of the auction gone awry spread and Kirby, realizing what was going on and who was responsible, headed to where the chaos was at and fought Drawcia once more. After defeating her again, the painting that Drawcia originated in was taken to a far off place where she can’t unleash her attacks. Even if everything was fixed for the time being, it didn’t change the fact that Drawcia was going to be plotting revenge and making sure that any major threats to her, especially Kirby, are eliminated in the process.
  • Leonardo da Vinci and Vincent van Gogh were horrified to learn of a vengeful painting that wanted to reshape the world to her own image and have done everything they can to distance themselves from her. A trio hailing from The Painting learned about Drawcia from their meeting with Kirby and they really weren’t happy with how destructive she is. It was one thing for that trio to go outside a painting with the intent to finish the work they’re from while dealing with internal prejudice, but they really don’t want to do anything that Drawcia is trying to pull off. Ramo, Lola, and Quill are also worried that what Drawcia is attempting could end up having a negative impact within The Painting, particularly if she ends up creating some minions to attack that setting so that she can take The Painting for herself.
  • The Magical Paintbrush served as her primary tool, though it later helped Kirby put an end to Drawcia’s plans, with Drawcia using other attacks to thwart the puffball. After hearing of a Celestial Brush, Drawcia sought to get her hands on it in the hopes that it can be an effective tool to help in her conquest. Amaterasu, a wolf who owned the Celestial Brush and was being targeted, wasn’t pleased to learn that there was someone with skill over art that wanted to take over the world and found herself in a battle against Drawcia with their surroundings being corrupted by Drawcia’s influence. In addition to easily defeating Drawcia, Amaterasu was able to return the surrounding area back to normal after driving the witch out of the area, making it clear that the Celestial Brush is not meant to be used for evil.
  • Bowser Jr.’s initial attempt at antagonizing Mario involved using a Magic Paintbrush (not the same one that Drawcia originally had) that can cover entire landscapes in gunk and he took advantage of it to put Mario in a bad position. While Bowser Jr. has since moved on from using paintbrushes and opted to use a Koopa Clown Car for his subsequent attempts at attacking Mario, Drawcia was curious about Bowser Jr.’s former tool and has tried looking for it. This resulted in her terrorizing E. Gadd, the creator of the Magic Paintbrush, who told her that he has no intention of giving his inventions to villains like her. It was only the efforts of Kirby and Luigi that drove Drawcia out of E. Gadd’s lab. As for Bowser Jr., while he’s still in ownership of that Magic Paintbrush, he’s fine with letting Drawcia use it whenever she wants something to do.
  • The Inklings have proven to be a frequent source of irritation for Drawcia. Their constant competitions involving covering large areas and each other in ink has annoyed the witch, especially after some Inklings decided to head to one of Drawcia’s areas to have a Splat contest there. What happened afterwards was the area being covered in brightly covered ink and being a major eyesore for Drawcia. The fact that the ink ended up causing some damage as Drawcia was trying to repair her world left a really bad mark for her and Drawcia has sought to do whatever was necessary to get those troublemakers out of her sight. From what the Inklings saw of Drawcia’s domain, they found it to be rather unsettling for it to be a frequent place for their contests and really don’t like whatever it is that she’s planning.
  • Of those who despise Drawcia’s actions, Friede and Ariandel harbor an intense hatred of the witch. While in theory Drawcia’s ability to turn the world around her into a painting could help The Painted World, it can potentially cause significant changes to the point that The Painted World could end up unrecognizable from what Friede and Ariandel are familiar with. In Friede’s view, anyone with that level of power to change The Painted World for the worse deserves to die and she, along with Ariandel, have done whatever they can to ensure that Drawcia doesn’t go anywhere near The Painted World. Drawcia herself is curious about that place and what it may hold, but she is aware that Friede and Ariandel aren’t going to go down that easily.
  • Despite transforming Kirby into a ball to limit his abilities, she still ended up being defeated by him thanks to adapting to that form. It became clear that the last thing that Drawcia wants to put up with is another rolling ball that can crush through obstacles with ease and she’s grown to despise The Rock of Ages for that reason. Not helping matters is that The Rock of Ages has gone through different paintings in the past and influenced that paintings’ appearance in some way. That boulder somehow ended up in Drawcia’s domain and after a while, completely messed up her surroundings and disfigured her appearance for a while after fighting her. All that did was enrage Drawcia further after getting herself and her world back together and she has looked for ways to stop that boulder from coming back to her world.
  • As far as other witches are concerned, Drawcia was only able to get a few of them on her side. Even if deities such as The Wicked Witch of the West and Kamek don’t really share the same goal of wanting the whole world to be a painting, they’re willing to work with Drawcia if it meant terrorizing others. Many other benevolent witches such as Akko (who sees Drawcia as another example of giving witches a bad name and was horrified after seeing what Drawcia Soul looked like) want no involvement in fulfilling Drawcia’s goal and have gone out of their way to impede Drawcia’s progress.
    • The Puella Magi learned of another witch in the Pantheon, prompting Sayaki Miki and Kyoko Sakura to take action. They managed to find a painting leading to another world and found themselves in a strange land with a variety of enemies that seemed to have come from an artist. The two eventually reached Drawcia, who was responsible for the world she created and the enemies the two Puella Magi encountered. After a long and hard-fought battle, Sayaka and Kyoko were able to defeat Drawcia and escape her world. The two noticed that Drawcia looked like a witch they could have fought back in their world and they, alongside the other Puella Magi, are prepared to fight Drawcia again should the witch make another move.
  • While Drawcia is a very powerful entity within Kirby’s universe when it comes to using paint as an attack, she isn’t the only one and there seems to be others possibly related to her. Paintra, who Kirby encountered during his journey to find the Dreamstalk, seems to have a lot of similarities to Drawcia to the point that many believe that Paintra and Drawcia are sisters. Claycia is more different from Drawcia since she utilizes clay as her name suggests and only became temporarily evil as a result of being possessed by a malicious entity known as Dark Crafter, though some still believe there is a connection between her and Drawcia even if its questionable at best. Vividria was someone who Kirby fought against a few times and was able to recruit to his side alongside many other minor enemies. No one is entirely sure about how much the familial connections apply and just how evil the four truly are, especially given the aforementioned incident that happened to Claycia and that Vividria doesn’t have much of a problem telling her sisters (whether or not they really are Drawcia and Paintra is another discussion) about going on an adventure to stop troublemakers, be it with Kirby or with other minor enemies.

    Vulcan 
Vulcan, God of the Forge (Smith of the Gods, Hephaestus, Vulcanus)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vulcan_smite.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A smith's hammer and pliers atop an anvil
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Smithing, manipulating fire, lameness undone through cybernetics, facial hair, creating godly items, ugliness by Greek standards, wed to Aphrodite, combat turrets, a large battle-ready hammer, baldness, glowing eyes
  • Domains: Forging, Volcanoes, Invention
  • Followers: Ashul Edwaru, Godo, Aries Mu, Felix Quintero, Io, Solus Prime, The Man with the Iron Fists, Jason Ogg, Rothion, Bengali
  • High Priest: Ulthane
  • Wife: Aphrodite
  • Allies: Zeus, Sophitia Alexandra, the Engineer, Link, Franky, Diana of Themyscira/Wonder Woman, Hercules, Tatsuya Suou, Hera
  • Enemies: Both Hades, Nightmare/Soul Edge, Soul Calibur, Nyarlathotep, Sauron
  • Annoyed by: Gilgamesh
  • Avoids: Kratos (not out of fear, but because of their painful past)
  • In order to ascend beyond his original Pantheon after its destruction, Hephaestus' godly spirit was joined by all other aspects of himself through the multiverse. This fusion freed the god from the evils of Pandora's Box and restored a portion of his original beauty. Considering all that transpired, Hephaestus decided to start fresh within the Pantheon, and so took his Roman name to distance himself from his past life.
  • Temperatures suddenly spiked within the House of Craft to the point that gods began to fear the walls would soon melt. When the source of this intense heat was discovered, the ringing of a hammer against metal greeted gatherers who found Vulcan diligently working on one of his many marvels. When he finished his work and heard his new neighbors' complains, the Smith rebuilt his new temple to insulate his heat and render it soundproof to everyone's relief.
  • Within mere hours of his presence being made public knowledge to the entire Pantheon, a great line formed outside of his Forge as gods after gods came with requests and commissions for the Smith's unrivaled works. Naturally, as was always the case, Zeus is given front-of-the-line privilege to restock on thunderbolts.
  • The meeting however between Zeus and Vulcan was strained. When Zeus came to collect on his thunderbolts, Vulcan gave him a clear warning about letting history repeat, seeing the shadows of Zeus' darker nature still linger.
  • He was not happy to meet Hera at first, because she was similar to his mother Juno, who threw him out of the mountains because she was repulsed by his grotesque appearance. They had since made amends.
  • Recently Vulcan was able to meet his Greek herald Sophitia as an equal, and the two spoke for a length of time. Hearing firsthand accounts of the malicious Soul Edge, Vulcan has started drawing plans for a proper weapon to fell the cursed blade. Not to worry, he's also heard about the mistake about the creation of its "counter" Soul Calibur and how it became another threatening weapon to all creation with its excessive obsession on "Orde", so he's making sure his new weapon doesn't commit the same mistake. Another topic brought up was Rothion, Hephaestus' avatar who forged Sophitia's equipment. Knowing that only a mortal he truly respected could have such an honor, it was an unpleasant surprise to see how unnecessarily hated the man was to mortals.
  • By a chance meeting with the reincarnated hero, Vulcan asked Link if he might inspect the Master Sword. Link reluctantly let the Smith hold his sword, which Vulcan held close to his ear. With a smile, he returned the Blade of Evil's Bane and complimented that it was the most loyal sword he'd ever held. "She knows her master better than any other". He left the god a little confused as they parted ways.
  • He's grown more than a little annoyed and has taken to building fortifications to keep Gilgamesh and his demands for the Excalibur away.
  • Although Vulcan normally doesn't act out over Aphrodite's adulterous actions (after the first time he caught her), there is one God who changes that rule. There's just something about the flaming God of the Underworld that Vulcan can't stand the thought of him making moves on her. And since she has shown rejection to Hades' advances, these moments mark the few times Vulcan will stand up to his wife's "virtue".
  • He's shown interest in the Engineer's ever-growing Sentry designs and speaks with the mercenary when he has the time. The two have even trade notes, with Vulcan working on his own level two and three turrets while the Engineer's taken a shot at the old pile bunker model.
  • Dave Strider has had his legendary piece of shit of a sword, Caledfwich, reviewed by Vulcan. This was mainly due to his Denizen, Hephaestus, being a depiction of Vulcan, and also one of the few that were supposedly not merged. They hit it off for a while, with Vulcan the god of Fire being surprisingly "chill", until Vulcan mentioned that Dave's sword was an excellent sword he could find himself crafting. Dave Strider left immediately after that.
  • Vulcan gave something of an annoyed sigh when Sun Wukong decided to drop in on him. They've fought together before, but the last thing he needed was a mischievous god mucking up his works.
  • When questioned about his robotic hand and leg, Vulcan first spoke with pride that he had replaced his once deformed limbs so that he would finally stand tall with his fellow Pantheon. That pride turned to spite when he mentioned his home gods still found him ugly, this time for "tainting" his godhood with mechanics.
  • Despite wanting to start over, some things just can't be forgotten. Forging one of his greatest weapons in all reality, Vulcan was prepared to strike down Kratos for sins past. However, upon confronting the God of War, Hephaestus saw genuine sadness and guilt in Kratos' eyes over their history. With the fight taken out of him, Vulcan destroyed his tool of vengeance. Even through soundproof walls of the forge, gods could swear they heard Vulcan sobbing over his lost daughter.
    • Unlike Kratos' relationship with almost all of the other Greek gods (read: hateful and violent), Kratos and Vulcan avoid encountering each other whenever possible. Just looking at Kratos deeply saddens Vulcan every time at the memory of Pandora, and Kratos completely respects Vulcan's desire to be as far away from him as possible. After being the one to cause Vulcan to lose his daughter, it's the absolute least he could do.
    • There was one notable exception to this, however. Vulcan had been under the impression that Kratos had callously murdered his daughter by tossing her into the Flame of Olympus, but was stunned to learn from Zeus (in one of his rarer sympathetic moments) that Pandora had chosen to sacrifice herself into the Flame, and that Kratos had actually tried to STOP her from doing so. Vulcan, wanting to know the whole truth about Pandora's death, confronted Kratos and demanded to know the full details, despite the pain that he knew it would cause him. Kratos reluctantly revealed how he had come to care for Pandora while seeing her almost like a daughter, and how he had sworn to find another way to destroy the Flame of Olympus when he realized that, indeed, he couldn't sacrifice Pandora. Pandora had made the choice for herself, and in the end, he had failed to save her due to his hatred for Zeus getting the better of him. Not wanting to leave Vulcan on a tragic note, Kratos ended by telling him that, in the darkness of his fear and despair, her spirit had guided him to unlock the light of Hope and use it to defeat Zeus once and for all. With this revelation, Vulcan's opinion towards Kratos marginally improved, although not nearly enough to overcome the pain between them. But at the very least, they can both share the same sadness over losing the one they had both come to love.
  • He has once lent his aid as a Persona for Tatsuya Suou under the name 'Vulcanus', but eventually left the position for Apollo. Now Vulcan has since reforged their bonds and stood ready should Tatsuya face Nyarlathotep again.

Intermediate Gods

    Andrew Hussie 
Andrew Hussie, God of Trolling Creators (The Huss, The Big Man)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Homestuck_AndrewHussie_5477.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The :o emoticon; alternately, a horse
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Mind Screw, Kudzu Plot, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, One-Man Army, Doing It for the Art, Mood Whiplash, Hero Killer, Dada Comics, Fridge Brilliance
  • Domain: Art, Creation
  • High Priest: Toby Fox, in the form of the Annoying Dog
  • Underlings: The Trolls, John Egbert, Dirk Strider
  • Allies: George R.R. Martin, Joss Whedon
  • Enemies: Lord English, The Comic Book Guy
  • Observed by: Dipper and Mabel Pines, Question, Luna Lovegood
  • No one in the Pantheon goes out of his way to troll his fanbase as much as Andrew Hussie. Some creators crush hearts by killing off fan favorites. Hussie is insane enough to change the height of his characters just to prove everyone one. It was determined that no one else could compete with the man for the title.
  • A capricious god who delights in using his followers as a living laboratory in the burgeoning field of Audience Reactions. Despite appearing to make dubious choices at times, both in his work and out, it always becomes clear that Hussie knows exactly what he's doing and why he's doing it.
  • His followers are put through countless hoops by his hand, yet at the end of the day, he is truly appreciative of them and makes that perfectly clear at times.
  • He WAS killed by Lord English, but Death Is Cheap in his homeworld, even for an Author Avatar.
  • There are actually two Andrew Hussies in the Pantheon. One is a relatively quiet guy with an odd sense of humor: One is a bombastic ditz. People tend to find the second one self-indulgent and sometimes annoying: The first one is relatively fine.
    • It turns out, the ditzy Hussie is actually the quiet one's avatar, the one that was killed by Lord English. Vriska (who can be found in the House of Love along with the rest of the Alternian Trolls) does her best to avoid the orange-skinned, milky-white-eyed humanoid.
  • Has quite a few fans in the Pantheon. Joss Whedon is better known for refuting fan theories, but he knows a master of crushing fans hearts when he sees one. It is rumored that he seeks advice from Hussie when it comes to writing stories.
  • GRRM was intrigued with the man's webcomic and how much it can change on a whim. The author also learned from the Trolling Creator that there are more ways to break a man's heart than just killing off someone.
  • Created by a Trolling Creator themselves, Dipper and Mabel have made it their mission to decipher which messages are real and which ones are just trolling.
  • He especially enjoys sending conspiracy theorists on a swerve. Whenever The Question thinks he has Hussie's strategy down, the creator makes up a completely different idea. It has frustrated him and his followers to no end. Luna, on the other hand, is often ahead of the curve. Her crazy theories turn out to be truer than not thanks to Hussie's desire to pick the least thoughtof idea.
  • No one is more incensed with Hussie's meddling of his world than the Comic Book Guy. Every time the fan thinks he has a theory going on, Hussie tears it down with his own interpretation. He has threatened to quit the webcomic several times... only to admit that he has finished the story in earnest. The man thinks it's a good comic; he just thinks that the Trolling Creator is playing him.

  • Enemies: Gilgamesh, Lady Tremaine, Sofia Lamb, Ragyo Kiryuin
  • Not Serious Enemy: The Nostalgia Critic
  • Seeing herself as the pinnacle of the arts and who can even rival the greatest of Gods, Nero's endeavors in many of them... are sub-par at best. Her worst subject, though, would have to be singing itself. She was offended at the title she was given and also for a low deity rank. She controlled her anger long enough to decide to convince the Court of the Gods to give her a title that truly reflected her superior art and a much higher rank.
  • When Nero first arrive in the Pantheon, this is what she had to say to the other deities;
    Rejoice, for I, Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, have gracefully ascended to the pinnacle of Godhood. Come and bask in the glory that is me. There is no shame in staring, for it is reasonable to be awestruck by such perfection.
  • Despite her poor artistic capabilities, she has a knack of easily learning new stuff. This includes piloting a mobile suit like an ace and even battling Yugi Muto in a duel. Unfortunately, because she is plagued by chronic headaches in her life, these skills are forgotten soon after.
  • Two of her most prize creation are Aestus Estus, a sword she herself forged and proclaim can rival anything Vulcan can create, and her personal theater, Domus Aurea. The latter she rebuilt in the pantheon and has invited many deities to enter and enjoy the grand performance of Nero herself. Many have regretted ever going to one of her plays.
    • One notable incident came when the Nostalgia Critic made jokes about one of her plays. Not being able to handle criticism very well, Nero chased after him in a fury. Luckily she was stopped before she could do any harm to Critic.
  • Has earned the ire of both Artoria and Mordred, more of the former than the latter, accusing her of being an imposter to their image. Of course, Nero always tells them that there's one big, well, two BIG differences that don't make them the same. This didn't help her standing with the other Sabers.
    • Recently, there's been evidence to suggest that Nero might be the ancestor of Artoria, which would explain why they look the same. While Artoria isn't exactly happy with the possibility, Nero couldn't be happier to be related to a beauty such as Artoria.
  • Was ecstatic that the actual Hercules was in the {antheon. She would challenge the demigod nearly every day in combat. Hercules applauded the fiery passion of the emperor and welcomed the challenge.
  • Has no problem in showing some skin. In fact, Nero has been known to battle in nothing but a barely-there bikini.
  • Because of her own manipulative, backstabbing mother, Nero has made every evil mother in the pantheon her enemy. In particular Ragyo Kiryuin for her molestation of her daughters and Tremarie for trying to deprive Cinderella of her happy ending. She questioned Cinderella why she never had her step-mother executed for all the pain she caused her.
  • Even though she was known to be a tyrant, Nero actually loves the people of Rome and showered them with gifts. This is why she is so passionate about the arts so that she can share it with her people. Unfortunately for her, her form of love was selfish and she actually expected her people to love her in kind but didn't when there was a coup against her. It's for this reason that she ended her own life in despair.
  • Nero values beauty above all else. This not only includes the arts but in matters of romance as well. She has expressed her attraction to many Gods and Goddesses like Hercules, Korra, Dante Sparda, Arturia, Chun-Li, Ryu, Alexander the Great, Dick Grayson, the male and female Robins, and Bayonetta. When it comes to beauty, gender is irrelevant.
  • Notice that she sounds just like an older Sakura Kinomoto. Nero bonded with the young Magical Girl and they have been seen skating together.
  • Called the 'Whore of Babylon' during her reign of Rome, others have wonder if she was Mother Harlot's human form. Nero was offended that others would even link her to the fiend. Not only that, but she doesn't like being called the Whore of Babylon.
    • Interesting fact, because of Nero's skill, she could be able to summon the 'Beast of Revelation' as her own personal mount.
  • Has been known to defy the laws of physics due to The Power of Love. This love has mostly been directed to the person known as Hakuno Kishinami.
  • Feeling absolutely merry in the holiday season, Nero decided to to dress up as Santa Claus. And yes, her Santa is of the sexy variety. Not just satisfied with just having the outfit, Nero also commissioned her own sleigh. Though she forgot that reindeer are supposed to pull the sleigh as instead, she used eight regular colored Chocobos with the ninth one being red. She even gave away gifts to all the good people around the pantheon. Though the gifts she gave out were pretty much everyday objects, it was the thought that counts. Unfortunately, she also started to sing Christmas carols. Though, others think it's cute, no matter how bad she sings.

  • Some people still argue if she really did play the lyre while Rome burned.
  • Every year, Nero holds Nero Fest, where teams of servants are put in teams and fight Chaldea's Master. Each servant is given a witty name.
  • She has tried her hand at livestreaming and has played Kancolle.
  • The way Nero walks around is reminiscent of the Nerevarine. When asked, she says that yes, she did make her own copy of the Greaves of Extravagant Swag once upon a time, based on the Nerevarine's own set.
  • If anyone makes a comment about how revealing her attire is, her response is...
    "Fool, they are not see-through. I'm letting them see!"

Lesser Gods

    Fix-It Felix Jr. 
Felix, God of Fixing (Fix-It Felix Jr.)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fix_it_felix.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His golden hammer
  • Theme Song: Fix-It Felix
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Catchphrase: "I can fix it!"
  • Portfolio: Ability to fix anything with his hammer, being loved by everyone, Wall Jump, able to heal anything with his hammer, heroes to look up to, Percussive Maintenance
  • Domains: Technology, Video Games, Fixing
  • High Priest: Bob the Builder
  • Allies: Wreck-It Ralph, Sergeant Calhoun (his wife), Vanellope Von Schweetz, Tails, Mario, Luigi, Emmett Brickowski, Wander
  • Enemies: Turbo, Lord Hater, The Tyranids
  • When Ralph came into the Pantheon, Felix asked to come along for the ride. His reasons: 1) it's his job to fix up any messes Ralph makes and 2) so he can be with his good friend.
  • His hammer has become a blessing to the Pantheon. With one strike, he's able to fix anything whether it be walls, fortresses, injuries, broken hearts, etc.
    • That hammer is a double-edged sword, however. One time when he was stuck in jail, Felix accidentally used it to make the weak bars become twice as thick than usual. Moreover, it cannot be used as a weapon so he's only good for support and not for combat.
  • A couple of gods have asked if he's Mario's long lost third twin since he arrived, but with good charm he points out, "No mustache".
  • Has been seen "fighting" Ralph whenever the two are working, and then going to the House of Food with him once they get time off.
  • Often asks why Sergeant Calhoun never ascended, since she's now his wife. The gods at this time haven't found a proper place for her. So for now, they made her one of the acolytes of the Action Girl house, so that he can visit her.
    • Finally, she was able to ascend into her own house; the house of Soldiers & Warriors fittingly enough. She was more than happy to announce her ascension to her husband by lifting him up to kiss him before threatening to smite any of his enemies, which he just laughed her and assure her he was okay for now.
  • Gets along famously with Emmett due to their shared background in construction. Also enjoys the company of Wander due to the both of them having similar upbeat attitudes, among other similarities.
    • These similarities to Wander didn't go unnoticed by Lord Hater and has sworn to destroy the two of them. Despite Wander insisting that Hater really isn't a bad guy once you get to know him, Felix is nevertheless weary around him.
  • Also present in the House of Technology, which still retains his membership.

Demigods

    K.K. Slider 
K.K. Slider, Patron Saint of Doing Art for Art’s Sake (Totakeke)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kk_slider_nh.png
  • Demigod (in actuality a Lesser God, but he's too humble to be ranked as such)
  • Symbol: His folk guitar
  • Theme Songs: All of his compositions, but particularly “K.K. Song” (live, aircheck version), K.K. Rider (live, aircheck version, Smash Bros. remix), and K.K. Bubblegum (live, aircheck version, Smash Bros. remix)
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Speaking Simlish, Musical Genre Roulette, Big Ol' Eyebrows, Breakout Character, Music for Music's Sake, Only Known by Their Nickname, Erudite Stoner
  • Domains: Music, Guitars, Creative Independence
  • Allies: Villager, Tom Nook, Isabelle, all good gods in the House of Music, Jimi Hendrix, Hatsune Miku, Weird Al Yankovic, Jerrica Benton, Recette Lemongrass, Moe Syzlak, Squigly, DJ Pon-3, the Duck Hunt Dog, Scooby-Doo, Courage, Snoopy, Jake the Dog
  • Enemies: C. Montgomery Burns, Looten Plunder, all evil gods in the House of Music, Napoleon
  • Many gods were mesmerized by soft guitar playing that somehow put even the most belligerent at ease. The source of the music was found to be K.K. Slider who was sitting on a small crate under a lonely streetlight just outside the Main Gates. The Villager was quick to recognize the canine minstrel and pushed for his arrival as his music was considered to one of the best. The gods who were part of Master Hand’s tournaments (Sonic, Snake, Mega Man, Pac-Man and Ryu included) all vouched for K.K.’s unique blending of various genres played only by his guitar and similish voice. The Court agreed and K.K. was allowed in.
  • K.K. is unique among musicians in the pantheon for two main reasons: First, he is able to compose and play music from a plethora of styles and cultures with just his acoustic guitar and his simlish voice and sound very good when playing live. Second, he composes music just for its own sake. He doesn’t want money or fame like other music deities do. He simply enjoys playing and composing what he loves: music.
    • Naturally, he doesn’t think too highly of “corporate fat cats who stifle the creative process” or those who exploit music for profit (like Plunder and Mr. Burns). However, he is good friends with both Jerrica and Recette as they represent the good side of business, with K.K. playing a few gigs in Jerrica’s foundation. Recette, on the other hand, is the only one allowed to sell his “airchecks” as he knows the profits with her are placed to good use, much to the consternation of Quark and Bubs.
  • The House of Music is his favorite spot as he tends to collaborate with many gods either providing back-up or lead vocals for some very interesting compositions.
  • One of the few deities that enjoy visiting him in his "pad" is Squigly. Despite an initial shock at her appearance and meeting Leviathan, he quickly warmed up to her. The fact she enjoys singing along and making lyrics as he plays warms his heart to see someone so dedicated to music.
  • Both he and Weird Al are good friends as both are masters at using various genres of music in their works. They are currently working on creating a polka medley version of K.K.'s compositions. Al only needs to figure out a way to use Simlish or compose lyrics of his own.
  • The nightly dance crowd at Moe’s Tavern waits in anticipation whenever K.K. shows up to take the DJ booth and plays arranged medleys of all his compositions, either in house or classic NES 8-bit mixes. Saturday nights from 8 PM to midnight, however, K.K. instead takes the stage with only his guitar and plays live requests. Some deities only show up these times to hear his unique songs.
    • Sometimes shares the DJ booth with Vinyl Scratch who respects him as one of the best DJ's she has collaborated with. K.K. is thinking of going on a tour of Equestria soon after meeting her.
  • Despite coming from a town where both human villagers and animal villagers co-exist, K.K. dislikes Napoleon due to his taking the worst traits of humanity while simultaneously decrying their tyranny. While he never attempted in the past to create a protest song as he cares for everyone equally, the greedy porcine appears to be his sole exception.
  • As he is a dog deity, he gets along with other multiverse canines in the Pantheon. True to form, the group tends to have a Poker Night in one of the private rooms at Moe's Tavern amongst them once every few weeks. Naturally, Scrappy and Sparky are not allowed within ten feet of their table (if they ever get past the Techies' minefield, that is).
  • K.K.'s entire philosophy can be summed up here.

    Monty Oum 
Monty Oum, God of Doing Art For the Awesome
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MONTYOUM_ACT_II.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His signature
  • Alignment: Awesome Good
  • Portfolio: Humble Hero (surprisingly), Awesome Art For The Sake Of It, giving his characters levels in badass, staging awesome fight scenes, adding recoil boost to guns he animates, fanservice, Badass Armfold, Motion Capture
  • Domain(s): Creation, Combat, Coolness
  • Underlings: All RWBY deities
  • Allies: Tifa Lockhart, Ayane, Kasumi, Ryu Hayabusa, Samus Aran, Yuna, Cloud Strife, Kairi, Epsilon, Agent Carolina, Agent Texas, Grif, Simmons, The Meta, note , Master Chief (sort-of), Yui Ogura, Kamina, Simon The Digger, Don Bluth, Ragna the Bloodedge, Yu Narukami, Hyde Kido
  • Neutral Terms With: Felix, Locus
  • Enemies: Archibald Penelope Snatcher
  • Opposes: Judge Doom
  • Pitied by: The House of Health and Diseases
  • Monty Oum's first well-known foray into animation was the work named Haloid, which featured the Alien Covenant, Master Chief, and Samus Aran. Or at least a SPARTAN with the same armor color as John-117…
  • He supposedly ascended to the Pantheon after shedding his mortal coil in February 1, 2015, but remained discreet upon seeing his 'creations' and some other characters he's worked with mourn his passing. That and he's trying to figure out how exactly to make his entrance awesome for them.
    • When he finally revealed himself, they all, led by the cast of RWBY in the Pantheon (and w/ a temporary truce arranged for Roman Torchwick as well as a much stricter one arranged for Adam Taurus, Cinder Fall, and the Meta), rejoiced.
      • There was a bit of awkwardness when he met Lie Ren though, not sure about how Ren would be able to speak. (Not that he spoke much to begin with) When he heard that Ren had a different voice, he relaxed a bit. It did, however, bring a tear to his eye since Ren now sounded a lot like his brother Neath.
  • And yet it appeared that he would disappear from the Pantheon completely, with his presence un-felt for many weeks. In response, many deites from both RWBY and Red vs Blue focused their might to bring him back. Eventually, they were successful in returning the man into the Pantheon.
  • His friendship with Yui Ogura is because she has done Motion Capture just like him in the past.
  • Finds friendship with Bruce Lee, since their mortal selves died during their 30's and are known to be awesome. Ironically enough, Monty once compared himself to Lee much earlier... you can see where this is going.
    • He then met up with the Life and Death God, Eric Draven who also had similarities with Bruce, considering Bruce the father he never had. It took a while for Monty to realize that Eric's mortal vessel was Bruce's son, Brandon Lee, and had the two reunite. Needless to say, the tears that were shed were very bittersweet.
  • He's also good friends with Kamina, whose universe and the messages it held, he has stated, was a part of making RWBY. Likewise, Kamina enjoys the amount of awesome he brings to his projects.
  • Gained the respect of Don Bluth. While the God of Western Animation enjoys Monty's works, there is an argument over whether it counts as that or anime.
  • It is hard to say whether CGI counts as cartoons or not. Either way, Monty has been vocal about his opposition to Judge Doom's plan to wipe out all cartoons.
  • Many in the House of Health and Diseases found it unfortunate for the man to have died of a medical complication. It happens all too often in various worlds. They have all promised to reduce the amount of deaths caused by these mistakes.
    • The sole exception was Archibald Penelope Snatcher. As the God of Allergies, many in the Pantheon blame him for Monty's death. The troll catcher couldn't be any less bothered by the situation, as many others have suffered the same fate in his name.
  • When he found out that the world of RWBY was going to joining the worlds of BlazBlue, Persona and Under Night In-Birth in an upcoming battle, he was overjoyed. He became allies with Ragna the Bloodedge, Yu Narukami and Hyde Kido thanks to this. In fact, some say that Monty was the one that made Ragna come back from non-existence for this event, though Monty and Ragna refuse to elaborate on it.

    Mr. Plinkett 
This profile is the most disappointing thing since my son.

Harry S. Plinkett, God of Creator's Apathy (Mr. Plinkett)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_vrkmgyejnglvcllybzn59q.jpeg
  • Demigod (possibly a Lesser God)
  • Symbol: A destroyed VCR copy of The Phantom Menace
  • Theme Songs: "I Squeeze Gats" ("Oranges", for when he's going off on a tangent)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, True Neutral when talking about films
  • Portfolio: Completely off his rocker, dirty and Evil Old Folks, killed his son, his wives, and countless others, hard-to-pin down past told by him, loves his pizza rolls, incredibly sexist, racist, and ableist, apathetic but effective critics
  • Domains: Movies, Murder, Depravity
  • Herald: Nadine (his former captive)
  • Allies: Emperor Palpatine (possibly)
  • Fan Boy towards: All deities from the original Star Wars trilogy and the original Star Trek series
  • Respects: Steven Spielberg, James Cameron
  • Enemies: George Lucas (with a hint of Foe Yay), every other Star Wars character, Jack and Rose, Jake Sully, Neytiri
  • Harry S. Plinkett is a murderous old man who made a name for himself by blasting the Star Wars prequels online. While his reviews were sloppy and often dove into his dark past, they proved successful enough to make him famous, allowing entrance into the Pantheon. When he arrived, Plinkett was taken aback by everything going on and had this to say:
    It's so dense, every single image has so many things going on.
  • Upon ascending, Plinkett hobbled over to Palpatine (or Man-in-a-Black-Cloak-who-is-not-a-trademarked-character-of-Lucas-Limited, as Plinkett calls him) and was given a greeting by him. Palpatine eagerly awaits his next review (preferably for a Christopher Nolan film).
    • He also tried to meet some OT Star Wars characters, whom he admires deeply. They were all grossed out by his presence.
  • Is pretty much George Lucas' Arch-Enemy in the Pantheon, being one of his most outspoken critics. Lucas tried to kill him in his sleep once, but Plinkett made a quick recovery and hasn't forgot about it since.
  • Plinkett's temple is made to look like a shabby, run-down house, with a dirty basement full of movies. He rarely leaves his domain, mostly staying in the basement watching movies. Screaming and moaning can often be heard from outside.
  • One of the few times Plinkett comes outside is to go to the House of Food and get pizza rolls. He frequently attempts to give passersby some of his food, but they're usually too disgusted to take up his offer.
  • Unlike his case with Lucas, Plinkett respects Steven Spielberg and James Cameron, the former for staying true to his ideals and the latter for his attention to detail. Despite this, he doesn't like Cameron's characters, Jack & Rose and Sully & Neytiri, thinking the Titanic couple to be too unlikable and outright hating the "retarded elves" because a Na'vi (actually some teenager in a Halloween costume he abducted) broke his Titanic scale model.
  • Sometimes releases his reviews in front of a live audience in the House of Theater in an event known as the "Plinkett Ego Celebration Festival".
  • Was banned from the House of Family after word got out that he "broke his TV" while watching child films.
  • Plinkett wants everyone to "remember" Tony Montana. He won't shut up about it. On an unrelated note, he hates dancing, and the time Montana tried to get into rapping and advertising.
  • Aside from Star Wars, Plinkett's passion is Star Trek. When in a conversation, he tries to slip in a reference to it at least once. And unlike later Star Wars exploits, he will begrudgingly admit to liking Captain Kirk's new adventures, something the good captain actually appreciates.
  • Is completely unrelated to another Mr. Plinkett whose VCR player is being repaired. This Plinkett thinks he's "a hack fraud" anyways.
    Fuck movies!

This profile was so subtle, you probably didn't notice it. But your brain did.

  • It's common for schools to have a blackboard with chalk to write and draw on. While teachers use it to write down the lessons of the day, students love to to doodle whatever comes into their imagination. But eventually, those drawings will have to be erased, never to be seen again except in memory. But what if they still linger around in another way? Enter Rudy Tabootie, a young boy with a creative imagination and a passion for drawing. While in detention after angering his cartoon-hating teacher Mr. Wilter, he discovers the White Lightning chalk, which has magical properties, such as creating a portal to an alternate dimension. He discovers the ChalkZone, a place where all chalk drawings that have existed live as sentient beings or otherwise tangible objects. He meets and befriends Snap White, a Chalkzoner that he created when he was younger, and keeps the existence of ChalkZone a secret from anyone else except for his best friend and crush Penny Snachez. He and his friends would go on to have many adventures within the ChalkZone while meeting the colorful denizens of the land.
  • It was an ordinary day at the House of School, as some students were fooling around after class by doodling on a chalkboard. One student drew a circle, which suddenly manifested as a portal connected to an alternate dimension. Curious about the dimension, some students decided to hop in to check it out. There, they find out that everything in the dimension is made of chalk. They soon discovered a notably non-chalky boy talking to a chalky person in blue clothes and approached them. The boy was very alarmed, as he was convinced that word of the ChalkZone didn't leak out, plus he had never seen these people before. Thankfully, some of the teachers came by to defuse the situation, as they were sent to investigate the portal and the missing students. After reprimanding the students, the teachers talked to Rudy and Snap, who explained what the ChalkZone is, and took him to the Court of the Gods, who bestowed them the title of Living Drawings. Rudy and Snap are glad that Mr. Wilter still doesn't know about the ChalkZone, which they've feared when they saw the students.
  • Ever since Rudy and Snap ascended, the ChalkZone has been opened for access. The ChalkZone can be accessed by drawing portals with the White Lightning chalk (of which thre are a few copies lying around in Rudy's temple) on any surface fit for chalk drawings. With the portal opened, any deity can come in to see the wild, wacky world of ChalkZone and its inhabitants. Ever since the ChalkZone was open to the Pantheon, chalk drawings that originated from the Pantheon can be found residing in the ChalkZone. These drawings range from simple stick drawings to detailed giants to malicious scribblies, prompting Rudy to fend off against them once in a while. Trying to tamper with the ChalkZone in anyway will get you thrown out of the dimension and receive a temporary ban, which can be permanent if it keeps persisting.
  • Given that the ChalkZone is home to many living drawings, Rudy and Snap would end up meeting other living drawings residing in the Pantheon. While not chalk drawings, Ramo, Lola, and Quill are living painting people, whose society was divided based on the completeness of the individual. The trio worked hard to get rid of the caste system by finishing the painting they reside in after visiting the other paintings. Rudy and Snap were quite impressed with their tale and became fast friends with them, with the duo allowed to enter their painting and the painting trio being allowed to enter the ChalkZone and make new aquaintances there. They also get along with Eko, whose has the ability to give life to her drawings, as evidenced by her partner Kazu. The two duos like to hang out with each other and express their creativity. On the other hand, the duo heavily oppose Drawicia, a living painting who aims to turn the whole world into a painting, fearing that she could invade the ChalkZone and convert it into a twisted painting of her own image.
    • Of special note is Maxwell, who the duo encountered when he was in the middle of writing. Like Rudy, he uses a magic tool to craft anything he can imagine, but instead of drawing things with chalk, he writes down thing down on his magic notebook. The duo were impressed with Maxwell's creativity and application with his notebook, plus Rudy likes having a new buddy in creating things out of the blue. The two boys often hang out to create new things with their respective tools, even combining their brains to forge a spectacular creation. Maxwell is also able to create life with his notebook to Snap's delight, so he likes to play with Maxwell's creations.
    • Judge Doom became furious when he heard of the ChalkZone vowing to use the dip to destroy the dimension once and for all. Rudy and Snap are understandably horrified by this, especially since he's a toon who's turned on his kind, and vowed to protect the ChalkZone from him. On the other hand, they get along with Roger and Jessica Rabbit, who are toons that happen to coexist alongside humanity, which amazes Rudy and Snap, wondering if it's possible to have further connection between the ChalkZone and the real world though they are saddened by the tensions between flesh and paint in their world.
    • However, the duo have something of an awkward relationship with Spongebob Squarepants because of an incident the latter went through. He created a crude copy of himself with a magic pencil, dubbed "DoodleBob", as a part of a prank he was planning to unleash on Squidward, Unfortunately, DoodleBob stole the pencil and began wreaking havoc around Bikini Bottom, stopped only by trapping him in a page. Spongebob and friends later had to deal with him again, as they recreated him within a doodle dimension, forcing them to duke it out with the doodle copy and eventually defeated him by banishing him to space with a balloon. Because of these incidents, Spongebob is a bit wary of living drawings, and while Rudy and Snap understand that such a bad first impression can sour your opinions, they still want to hang out with him without any ensuing awkwardness.
  • By certain means, Snap can be considered a fictional character that came to life, so Rudy and Snap would eventually meet up with other fictional characters come to life such as the Crimson Chin, Meteora Österreich , and Altair. The duo get along with the Crimson Chin and Meteora, and both groups have taken interest in each other's worlds. Rudy and Snap in particular like the Crimson Chin for being a superhero character, as Snap has a superhero-inspired design. They were intrigued that Meteora and Altair were summoned alongside other fictional characters to fight each other, plus a bit saddened that she couldn't return to her home world due to having to send the rest home, and staying in the real world made her powers fade away, though they're glad she's okay with everything in the end. With Altair, they understand her grief over her creators death, but think that her trying to kill everyone out of her grief wasn't really a good idea. Still, her creator was revived in a sense, which made her finally calm down, so they're glad she's not that angry anymore. They are considerably much more wary of Xingo, a fictional character that causes much destruction in his wake due to functioning on cartoon logic. They aren't really fans of being on the receiving ends of his pranks. They are also uneasy around Bendy, given that the circumstances regarding his arrival to the real world was... disasterous to say the least, so they keep their distance from him in case he turns to his beast form.
    • While Ungalo may not be a character that jumped out from a book, he does have the power to bring them to the real world. His Stand, Bohemian Rhapsody, is able to summon fictional characters to the real world, but if someone sees a character they connect to, they are then forced to live out the character's story, often with unpleasant results, which likely would end in the unfortunate victim's death. Needless to say, the two aren't really friends of him because of his horrifying power and the implications it could have on the ChalkZone, plus his crude demeanor keeps turning them away from him.
  • Snap could be considered by some to be Rudy's imaginary friends, only that he is real and tangible. The two did meet up with actual, tangible imaginary friends, namely Bloo, Wilt, Eduardo, and Coco. Snap is glad to meet up with new friends while Rudy sees them as not to dissimilar to how the residents of ChalkZone look like. Of all of them, Snap interacts with Bloo a lot, being blue-coloured creations of young boys and do consider each other as friends, even if they have a rather belligerent relationship.
  • As Rudy often uses his creativity to solve problems within the ChalkZone, as well as the ChalkZone itself being fueled by the creative minds of humanity, Rudy and Snap are appropriately horrified by the existence of the Nothing, an eldritch entity whose presence reduces its surroundings to nothing and saps away the creativity and imagination of living beings. The duo fear that if the Nothing reaches their world, the destruction it would leave in its wake will destroy the ChalkZone due to the lack of imagination, to say nothing if it does enter the ChalkZone. The two vow to prevent the Nothing from causing more destruction, and since it can be destroyed with a sufficiently imaginative mind, Rudy became one of its strongest opposers, ready to banish it with his magic chalk.
  • Another thing to note is that as a chalk entity, liquids and other methods to erase chalk are anathema to Snap and can easily end him. Of course, the House of Life and Death is there to bring him back, but that's not an experience he wants to have often.
  • As mentioned prior, Rudy's greatest asset is his imagination, which he uses to solve problems within and out of the ChalkZone, his chalk summoning whatever tools he can think of to save the day. This lead the duo to meet up with other deities who weaponize their creativity and imagination, such as the Ressha Sentai ToQger, Hal Jordan, and Kyle Rainer. The ToQger are powered by their imagination, transforming into superheroes to defend the the Rainbow Line, a magic railway network powered by imagination, while the Lantern Rings have the ability to construct anything that the wielder desires, with Hal and Kyle using them to fight evil. The superheroes respect Rudy for his craftiness and responsibility with his imagination, while Rudy and Snap are excited to meet real superheroes in the Pantheon. Speaking about creativity, that happens to be one of the domains that Sheogorath lords over, though the duo are hesitant to meet him, given his chaotic, unstable nature, though the Daedric Prince does like the kid's imagination and wants him to try out his cheese in an offer of kinship.
  • Rudy Tabootie met up with Nate Adams, another young boy who ended up discovering a whole new world of strange, quirky creatures with a special object. In Nate's case, he found the Yo-Kai Watch, a magical watch that allows him to see, interact, and befriend the mischievous Yo-Kai. The two boys quickly became friends as they related closely with each other's experiences. Nate does feel a bit envious of Rudy lacking his averageness complex, but is interested in seeing the denizens of ChalkZone, while Rudy wants to see the quirky Yo-Kai for himself.
  • With Snap being designed around a superhero aesthetic, he and Rudy would end up visiting the House of Heroes. The two positively geeked out over the presence of actual superheroes in the Pantheon, and quickly rushed up to them to ask them many questions about their adventures. The members of the House like the aformentioned Hal Jordan respect Rudy for using his creativity and imagination to solve problems within ChalkZone, while Snap hopes that one day he can get real superpowers of his own.
  • By the way, Snap HATES being called a Plucky Comic Relief, and will get upset if someone calls him that, even if he does get into situations a Plucky Comic Relief gets into often. Because of this, he's greatly annoyed by Jar Jar Binks for being the a very obvious example of the archetype, and refuses to associate with him. Certain groups like the Itazura Griefers and individuals like the Goose love to mess with him despite his protests, and find amusement in calling him a Plucky Comic Relief over and over.
  • Aside from chalk drawings, Rudy draws comics on the side. He's made newspaper comics involving Snap going through numerous adventures — although this came with a downside of many child gods making their own drawings of Snap ("Snips" as the real Snap calls them) — and he's been working on a comic that involved Vampire Cannibals. However, there was a bit of confusion on the title: did the vampires eat other vampires or were they cannibals that transformed into vampires? Rudy quickly explained that they eat other vampires. He hopes to impress Stan Lee with his work, even though it's been rejected for being a bit too edgy.
    • Then came the day that he tried to get pointers from the House of Vampires. Most of the good-natured ones had a laugh at Rudy's idea while the more neutral or evil ones didn't bother to answer.
  • One day in the House of School, Rudy was finishing up some chalk drawings onto the playground when he met up with a girl with blond pigtails also doing some drawings. That happened to be Bubbles of the Powerpuff Girls. Rudy was amazed at Bubbles' imagination and drawing, but when he spoke Bubbles was taken aback since, for some reason, he reminded her of Buttercup and the time Buttercup not only made fun of Bubbles' drawings but also destroyed her chalk. Upset with this, Rudy personally went to Buttercup to ask why she'd do such a thing. Buttercup explained that she was being insensitive and she eventually apologized for what she did. She also warned Rudy to be very wary of HIM as he used Bubbles' aggression to reanimate her chalk drawings to go on a rampage. Considering how much power the demon has, Rudy was quick to take the advice although warned Buttercup to not pull that trick again while he was around.

    • That said, supplies from the House of Technology are sometimes given to him.
  • Tim primarily spends his time adding MORE POWER to different appliances around the Pantheon. Half the time, they blow up or malfunction. But other times, he manages to create some pretty cool things.
    • He once helped Villager decorate the inside of his temple. Villager liked all of Tim's ideas, even some of the odder design choices. The two have since worked together on numerous projects (with varied success).
  • Has tried to help MacGyver add MORE POWER to his devices, though the latter declined.
  • Tim was not amused when he came across the Nostalgia Critic's rendition of his theme song. The two have become each others' Sitcom Arch-Nemesis.
  • Gets along well with Emmet and Fix-It Felix, Jr., however, they admit that he has a tendency to get carried away whenever they have joint construction projects.
  • Was amused to see Buzz Lightyear sounds just like him, and has since considered building a life-sized and functional version of his armor, to the horror of many deities.
  • Can be heard from a distance by the sound of his distinctive grunting. He encourages other manly men in the Pantheon to grunt when they feel powerful (or confused).

  • Aggravates: Too many gods to count, including Pinkie Pie and the rest of the House of Celebration
  • Gods that can stand their poetry: The aforementioned Auditors, Cybermen, the Incubators
  • Billions of years ago, when the primal Vogons emerge out of the sea, evolution took one look at them...and disgusted, gave up. However, even in this state, they were far too thick-headed to go extinct, doing without until they could fix it with surgery. Their own brain is a disfigured liver. Unsurprising, they as a race as some of the most droll, banal and generally aggravating species in creation. And they're fine with it so long as they get to throw their mean, callous, heartless exterior into sharp relief.
  • The Vogons are one of the worst poets in all the multiverse, to the point that their poetry is used as torture. Specifically, it's the third worst poetry in the universe. The second worst poetry was by the Azgoths of Kira, who's poet master Grunthos the Flatulent's recitals caused internal hemorrhages and eventually his own intestine to throttle his brain. The worst of all time was by Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings, which was thankfully lost forever along with the Earth.
  • Their own house dislikes them due to how awful their poetry was. Ever single reviewer in our out of the Trope Pantheon has declared them an enemy as well, along with the House of Music when they tried a poetry recital there. That being said, there are gods who don't find it painful. The Cybermen and Incubators, due to lacking emotion, are able to stand their poetry. Admittedly for the former, it taxes the emotional inhibitor, at least they don't go mad.
  • Despite their attitude, they aren't evil. Just bad tempered, bureaucratic, officious and callous. They wouldn't even lift a finger to save their grandmothers from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal without an order, signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters. Do the following if you want to annoy them. Best not to let them visit parties, and they're one of the few gods Pinkie Pie has no interest in showing a good time; they're that unpleasant.
  • Every last one of them is a massive Obstructive Bureaucrat, which grinds the gears of most gods in the Trope Pantheon. Steven Armstrong especially as he considers them everything wrong with a government and Sirius Black hates them due to his own issues with bureaucracy. The Head Pixie, however, loves their bureaucracy. He let them be his followers, and now that they've ascended is happy to hang out with them. He can't stand their poetry though, but at least it isn't considered torture for him. They(more specifically Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz) used to represent the Obstructive Bureaucrat trope until Ron Swanson tarnished their name and threw them out. Still sour about it.
  • Side firmly with law in the argument of Law vs Chaos. If the Grand United Alliance of Chaos succeeds it would make paperwork impossible, plus they're the kind of people who wouldn't exist in Lucifer's world order. The values YHVH preaches, The Evils of Free Will...that's all very attractive to the Vogons. Most of the GUAL don't want them to join because of their banality, and even YHVH admits they're kind of killjoys. Initially, their representative Jeltz was part of the GUAE mainly due to the paperwork, but only because the GUAL didn't exist back then and they can't be called good.
  • Human gods look at them badly for destroying the Earth for a hyperspace bypass. There was no malice, however, and they've said Earth had 50 years to check...at Alpha Centauri. It was only 4.3 light years away. Human bureaucrats have issue with him, however, more obsessive or obstructive examples like Cornelius Fudge, the Pointy-Haired Boss and Hermes Conrad are willing to compromise and work with them. Dolores Umbridge doesn't have any values, so she was already fine working for or with them.
  • Their relationship with the Imperium of Mankind is a tricky one. Given their attitudes to xenos and destroying their Earth it was initially hostile, but given their love of tedious legislation, they had to admit the Vogons had their use. Besides, the Vogons are used to the galaxy disliking them. They also want to get rid of the forces of Chaos as well, which like the GUAC will make their job a nightmare. They seem to get more along with the Grox, given how they're seen by the rest of the galaxy.
  • If you want to get a drink from a Vogon, stick your finger down their throat. If you want to get a lift, forget about it...though you may be lucky enough to have one of the co-pilots let you in, given their dislike of Vogons. They catch and sit on beautiful gazelle-like creatures which breaks their spine(they still sit on them anyway), and every year drunkenly smash scuttled crabs with iron mallets. They have as much sex appeal as a road accident.
  • One god in the Trope Pantheon actually enjoys their poetry, by virtue of being even less imaginative than them; the Auditors of Reality. As massive bureaucrats, they seem to get along with the Vogons. However, their desire to exterminate life to make their job easier, while understandable by the Vogons, seems extreme even for them. Still, they tolerate each other enough and the Auditors see them as one of the least chaotic life-forms.

Dorian Gray, God of Creepy Changing Paintings

  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: His portrait
  • Alignment: True Neutral —> Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Owner and subject of a painting that ages in his place when nobody is looking, valuing beauty above all as taught by his mentor, pleasure-seeker
  • Domains: Art, Beauty, Youth, Corruption

  • Enemies: Emperor Calus, The Luminary/Eleven, Erik
  • Interested in: Tomie Kawakami, Drawcia
  • Complicated Relations: Morathi
  • Dorian Gray was a young man whose beauty made him a muse for painter Basil Hailward. Basil's friend, Lord Henry Wotton, came to visit as Basil was crafting a portrait of Dorian. Lord Henry was quite taken with Dorian and entered into a philosophical discussion with him where he espoused beauty as the only ideal worth pursuing. This made a strong impression on Dorian, who fervently wished that his portrait would age in his place. From then on, Dorian adopted a hedonistic lifestyle, putting Lord Henry's ideas into practice. One day, after cruelly spurning a lover, Dorian noticed that his portrait had changed so that his expression was a sneer instead of a smile, and he realized his wish had come true. This prompted him to indulge in various vices, the consequences of which were always suffered by the portrait. However, the progressively uglier portrait served as a reminder of his sins and his guilt eventually caught up to him. Eventually he couldn't handle it and stabbed the portrait, an action which killed him, with the portrait being restored to its original beauty.
  • Next thing he knew, he was alive again with his initial beauty intact. The next thing he noticed, much to his horror, was his loathed portrait hanging from the wall, also restored to how it was in the beginning. He also realized he had a letter in his hand, which informed him of his circumstances and revealed he had been chosen to be in a place called the Pantheon, that his domain was Creepy Changing Painting, that said painting would always be there to remind him of his sins, so he might want to mind what his future actions would be, and any attempts at destroying it would be reversed. After getting out of the place (his temple, which is just like his house) to investigate further, he came to the conclusion that he was most likely not in any sort of hell or heaven, and definitely not good old England, but in some place very different.
  • Most things point to Dorian not having learned any lesson from his experiences; he still has the greatest esteem for beauty and personal pleasure above any moral concerns. The fact that he is now a deity has, if anything, inflated his ego and worsened his narcissism. Of course, the man's attempts at redeeming himself have always been very shallow and ultimately self-serving, so whether he could have ever done so is very dubious. And to top everything off, he is pretty much immortal now, so he can destroy his painting to appease his flimsy sense of guilt and start over with a fresh slate whenever he wants. Multiple deities might be revolted at Dorian, but the worsening of his character is of no concern to the Main House, a neutral entity that is only interested in ascending those who have interesting stories to tell.
  • Due to Dorian having the views he does about beauty, he was invited to tea with The Rule of Beauty by the Evil Queen and he was honored to accept, finding much commonality in the Queen and the rest of her allies' pursuit of beauty and sympathy for their frustration in failing to attain it, largely thanks to their enemies. Out of the members of this group, he is by far closer to the Queen, though he keeps his distance when it comes to her enmity with Snow White, as Dorian, though completely understanding the Queen's perspective, disapproves of ridding the world of someone as beautiful as her (and the Queen's hag form is appalling to look at, besides).
  • Dorian expressed a lot of interest in Dr. Jekyll's experiments upon reading about them. After all, the idea of a concoction designed to let a person act on their less socially acceptable (Dorian is loath to use the term "evil") impulses without consequence would appeal greatly to somebody like Dorian. So he pursued an acquaintance with the doctor, which was reciprocated as Jekyll also found Dorian's case fascinating. While Jekyll won't accompany Dorian on his "excursions" for fear of tarnishing his image (as if it's not already), he does understand why Dorian does what he does given his own evil impulses. Which is why he always goes as Mr. Hyde; Dorian enjoys how Hyde stops at nothing to attain his pleasure. The two make for quite a debauched duo.
  • Perhaps hanging out too much with Mr. Hyde (not exactly known for ascribing much value to human life) has had a way of lowering Dorian's standards even further, as he seems to find no objection with keeping the company of a certain Patrick Bateman, a man well-known to be an abhorrent Serial Killer. Make no mistake, Patrick's many grisly murders are not exactly Dorian's cup of tea in terms of enjoying himself, but Patrick is someone who is always paying attention to the latest fashions and trends and the information and opinions Patrick bothers to spare on those topics is always interesting to Dorian. Patrick, though hating people in general, seems to at least tolerate Dorian for his admiration of him (as Patrick is also quite narcissistic himself) and their shared interests, so he humors him.
  • Dorian's ways have made him a favorite with the Chaos God Slaanesh, who looks favorably upon hedonistic pursuits of all stripes, morality be damned. As far as Dorian is concerned, he is more than glad to get to enjoy the approval and protection of a powerful deity who is understanding of his philosophy. Perhaps it's because of that (and only that) that Morathi elected to spend one night with him. Afterwards though, she hasn't paid him much attention and even seems to look down on him. Both may be hedonistic and vainglorious, to worshipful levels in Morathi's case, but she is still a Dark Elf, a race who tend to see themselves as above everybody else. Although, this doesn't stop Dorian from admiring Morathi's poetic (in his opinion) way of life.
  • Not all hedonists are approving of Dorian's lifestyle. Emperor Calus is one such hedonist, as he is driven towards enjoying the small pleasures in life and letting others do so as well. Emperor Calus thinks that Dorian is a fool for fearing age so much that he sold his soul for eternal youth and for letting himself be influenced by the precepts of a man (Lord Henry) who talks big but doesn't have the guts to act on what he espouses.
  • The first time he came across the stunningly beautiful Tomie Kawakami, Dorian was floored and relentlessly pursued her for his own pleasure. For Dorian, that ended the way most who pursue Tomie end, which is with him driven insane and dead, not that it meant much in the Pantheon. You would think this would have given him at least an impression of the feelings that Sybill Vane, an actress he romanced, must have gone through when he spurned her cruelly. But nah. If anything, he became even more fascinated with Tomie and became determined to beat her at their shared "game", which might be yet another expression of his narcissism.
  • When he deigned to at least become acquainted with the art-related deities he shares his House with (something he wasn't looking forward to do, given how his portrait causes him woe), he found it curious and then terrifying that some of the figures in the paintings were not only capable of movement, but also even come out of their paintings. This has given him nightmares where his likeness comes out of his portrait to torment him. Although some, like Drawcia, do give him hope that a world where reality and painting are confused would be synonymous with a world where Dorian no longer needs to care what his portrait will show him after a day of debauchery. Meanwhile, Dorian doesn't really get along with most painters, given he not only perverted a painting with his shallow wishes for eternal youth, but also killed Basil.
  • Another pair of enemies for Dorian came in the form of The Luminary and Erik. They encountered a similar villain who was named Dora-in-Grey. She was also a sentient, changing piece of art who they had to destroy.

    Marianne and Héloïse 
Marianne and Héloïse, Goddesses of Intimate Artistry

  • In the late eighteenth century, Marianne, a painter, travelled to an isolated island in Brittany (northwest France). She was commissioned to create a portrait of a young lady, Héloïse, who was soon to be married to a Milanese aristocrat. Héloïse was unhappy about the arranged marriage and refused to sit for any portrait. Marianne thus hid her trade from her and posed as a companion on her walks, in which she was to memorize her features to create the portrait. The two grew close enough for Marianne to feel guilty about the ruse and reveal the finished portrait to Héloïse, who found it flawed. Unsatisfied, Marianne scrapped it and started over, with a willing Héloïse posing for it. Throughout this process, love blossomed between them and they started an affair. But it could not last due to the time and society they lived in. Once the work was finished, Héloïse had to go get married and Marianne had to leave. They did not forget each other as time passed though, with them communicating their affection for each other in other paintings.
  • That they could not be together is infuriating for many people, including some deities in the Pantheon. In an attempt at remedying this, it was decided to grant them the chance to reunite, by ascending them. Marianne was drawn first into the Pantheon by the promise of a new commission; she thought it was ironic that the sender appeared to be from the same region where she had her fateful encounter with Héloïse, but when crossing the sea she was dropped off at an oddly black-and-white island which she discovered was inhabited by only two women, Alma and Elisabet. They recognized Marianne and Alma brought her up to speed on what was going on, explaining that she had the choice to invite Héloïse in and stay together. Marianne naturally thought this all might be a dream, but she may as well enjoy it and was curious to see just how they would bring her to Héloïse, who was in Milan.
    • Turns out the answer to this is, by way of a white wolf with red markings, as Amaterasu was waiting just outside Alma and Elisabet's temple, waiting to help a fellow painter out. Riding on Amaterasu's back, Marianne ended up in Milan and face-to-face with Héloïse much sooner than she expected. Héloïse, seeing Marianne with a white wolf next to her, most likely thought this was all a dream too, given she didn't ask very many questions and agreed quite easily to go with Marianne. With that, the two were brought to the Main House, where they were pronounced goddesses (and it was also stressed they could go back anytime to attend to their earthly duties). Only when they got to their temple did they pinch each other to finally disprove their belief that it was a dream. Any questions as to their new situation were left for the next day as they basked in the feeling of being together again.
  • As a result of their ascension, the House of Craft now exhibits all the paintings attributed to Marianne. We say "attributed" because a lot of them are signed under her father's name so she wouldn't be instantly dismissed, so that Marianne now gets due recognition for her work gladdens both her and Héloïse. Marianne herself later helped cataloguing them and also arranged for her father's work to be exhibited. The paintings on display have made many deities with an artistic bent interested in the couple and respectful of their bittersweet story.
    • Specific artists who are friendly with the two include Jane Lane and Helen Graham. Jane, being an "alternative" girl, has more respect than usual for the couple for realizing that the norms of their society are kind of crappy and helping others despite the illegality of it and lack of benefit to themselves (such as helping the maid Sophie get an abortion). Helen, though a little more disapproving, at least understands where they are coming from, since they are all women who are trying to make their way in a world where the rules tend to work against them.
  • One of the first things they had to get used to was that the subjects of paintings could sometimes take on a life of their own, as they discovered when they met Ramo, Lola and Quill. They were sympathetic to how Marianne and Héloïse had their romance frustrated by societal obstacles, given they had to contend with an unfair society in their own world, and more specifically, Ramo also had a forbidden romance with Claire and they both suffered for it. The three also find themselves thinking that if only their creator had been more like Marianne, that is, inspired by love instead of creatively hampered, their painting would have been finished faster.
  • Not all animate paintings are as nice as Ramo, Lola and Quill, as they cautioned the couple about beings like Drawcia, Friede and Ariandel, with Drawcia being obsessed with turning the whole world into a painting, and Friede and Ariandel fanatic about preserving their home painting. Marianne and Héloïse heed these warnings and do think those deities sound horrifying, though at the same time they doubt any of them care about the couple's existence as there's little or nothing they would be able to do to stop them. The two just don't think often about them.
  • Rose Bukater and Jack Dawson are another famous couple who were sadly torn apart after only a few short days of knowing each other. In their case it was arguably more tragic, as Jack died to save Rose. As it happens, Jack is also a pretty talented artist, so it wasn't long before he and Marianne met at each other to talk about their work. Rose and Héloïse also hit it off easily because of their commonality of being high-ranked ladies who were expected to marry husbands chosen for them. Rose managed to get out of the obligation, which was obviously not the case for Héloïse, although she admits that her Milanese husband gives her no reason to complain so far, whereas Cal Hockley seems like the worst type of husband. Now, the biggest question is, is Jack's famous nude drawing of Rose putting ideas in Marianne's head? For her part, Héloïse told Marianne she wouldn't mind if she wanted to draw her like that.
  • Deciding to try one of the bars in the Pantheon (presumably it would be unthinkable back in their world, at least for a proper lady like Héloïse), they came across the joint run by Jill Stingray, who was reminded of her own love story with a woman named Lenore upon entering conversation with them. That was a story that also ended in tears, as they had a huge fight after which they never saw each other again, and then Lenore died of illness. Jill thus wishes the best for Marianne and Héloïse. The two felt all the more blessed for the Pantheon providing them with the opportunity to be with each other, which would be nigh impossible in their world. They also keep Jill occasional company out of compassion.
  • They visited Alma and Elisabet again as courtesy for helping out when Marianne had just arrived. They find it a funny coincidence that Alma and Elisabet also live in relative isolation on an island. Possibly as a consequence, they also made some... assumptions about the nature of Alma and Elisabet's relationship, which Alma vehemently denied when she realized the implications. Elisabet, however, neither denied nor confirmed it and amused herself with Alma's reaction. Marianne and Héloïse apologized and calmed things down before the situation escalated.
  • Shortly it occurred to Alma that she knew of a place Marianne might find interesting as a painter, so she took them to the temple inhabited by Agnes, Anna, Karin and Maria. The magnificently decorated mansion with its vibrant colors was indeed very fascinating to Marianne and Héloïse and they were welcomed by Agnes, who is herself interested in painting and was enthusiastic to have them. Karin is still not nice to strangers, though for Agnes' sake she tolerated Marianne asking her to pose in such and such manner in front of a red wall (Maria did it rather more gladly). To Marianne's artistic eyes, all the complementing and contrasting colors were a great source of inspiration for her next work.
  • They've come into contact with yet another duo isolated on an island, this time by receiving an impromptu visit from a gloomy-looking sailor called Thomas Wake, a lighthouse keeper. He explained that he lived a damned life with Ephraim Winslow for sole company and admitted he felt a little jealous of Marianne and Héloïse for being so happy together in their own isolated place. While he left shortly after, Marianne and Héloïse think it's probably better to steer well clear from him and Ephraim after doing research on them, given they seem very unhinged. Though on the brightside, Marianne and Héloïse have come to think they were quite lucky to meet each other on that island.

  • A certain painting was inhabited by characters who divided themselves into three castes: the Alldunns, who were completely painted in and therefore finished; the Halfies, who were incomplete; and lastly the Sketchies, who were just outlines. The Alldunns held themselves as superior, encouraged by their chief, the Great Candlestick, and were the only ones allowed to live in the castle. The Halfies and Sketchies were relegated to the garden and often treated brutally by the Alldunns for their own amusement. However Ramo, an Alldunn, was compassionate towards the Halfies and Sketchies and argued for equality. Ramo was also in love with an Halfie named Claire. This romance wasn't thought of highly by either faction, though Claire had a friend, Lola, who supported her. Meanwhile there was Quill, a Sketchie who saw his friend Gum get maimed by Alldunns. Ramo, Lola and Quill teamed up by chance to escape persecution, and went on a journey to get their creator to finish their painting so their rotten society would be no more. They got out of their painting and visited many others, getting a new companion in Magenta, a drummer tired of the war his painting was locked into. In the end they took matters into their own hands and colored their paintings themselves, solving the problems within them.
  • The painting caught the attention of famed artists Leonardo da Vinci and Vincent van Gogh after they heard about the strange story of how its subjects were alive and endeavored to complete themselves. The two strongly recommended that such a special painting be put on display in the hallowed galleries of the House of Craft. The request was acquiesced to, and Ramo, Lola and Quill granted godhood for their heroic actions in completing the work, which is simply labelled "The Painting/Le Tableau". The existence of the Pantheon doesn't faze the three much, since they already got used to traversing through different worlds in their adventure. If anything, they're proud to be in an exhibition. And yeah, their temple is pretty much their painting. Very space-efficient.
  • Things in the Pantheon aren't easy even if you live inside the relatively isolated world of a painting though, as Ramo, Lola and Quill (as well as the painting's whole population) found out the hard way when the Inklings brought one of their splatting sessions too close and ended up badly staining the work. Many of the painting's characters were struck, which is tantamount to killing them (as Ramo and Claire could explain to you as they were nearly executed in a similar manner). The three heroes and their Heralds somehow managed to escape and rued the apocalypse that had befallen their home.
    • Not all was lost however. In an attempt to apologize, the Inklings told the characters about a goddess who wielded a Celestial Brush and who would certainly be able to restore the painting to its full glory. The only problem was that she lived in a completely different House, though that meant little to the characters if it meant restoring their home. And Lola specifically was rather stoked about exploring the Pantheon besides. Eventually, after a harduous journey, they did meet said goddess, Amaterasu, and were befuddled and rather frightened that she was a wolf. Quill in particular wondered how such a fleabag was supposed to help them; Lola was more curious. Her Celestial Envoy Issun did the talking though, which was good for the characters as Issun was about their size and easier to relate to, though Lola did not appreciate his attempts at flirting or offering to complete her design. At any rate, Amaterasu was totally willing to help restore the painting, and she did so, and the characters couldn't help but marvel at how peerless her brushwork was. Ever since then, they have the utmost respect for Amaterasu, as well as her friendship.
    • Incidentally, although the Inklings were of help to them, the painting's denizens are of the opinion that they don't really want them around if there's any danger of them breaking out into their games that could damage the painting again. The Inklings agree to be more careful, but their reputation is cemented within the painting as bringers of the apocalypse. Meanwhile, Lola is pondering whether it would be possible for her and her friends to learn the Celestial Brush technique, so that other similar catastrophes that strike their home can be dealt with more promptly by themselves. It would mean spending more time with that annoying Issun, but that's a lesser evil.
  • For someone more frightful than the Inklings could ever be, there is Judge Doom, and it would definitely not be an accident if he ever attempted to destroy the painting, as he holds a hatred for all things animated (which the painting, well, is, despite that seeming self-contradictory). The trio is horrified that Judge Doom is actually made of ink just like them, and cannot fathom why he would turn against his kind so violently. The painting's denizens live in dread of the Dip, which could dissolve them without leaving any trace.
    • One good thing came out of this, which is that the trio met and befriended Roger Rabbit and learned about the existence of toons, beings made of ink like them that lived in the real world, mostly working as actors. It was rather interesting for them to learn that there are tensions between flesh and bone human beings and the toons. It makes them wonder what would happen if painting characters decided to move into the real world permanently. For now though, the trio are happy living in their painting.
  • They were initially happy to learn that there were other inhabitants of paintings around, namely Friede and Ariandel. That enthusiasm died out though, when it came out that Friede had been in cahoots with the Great Candlestick to return him to his place of authority. It was also then that it came out the horrible things Friede had done for the sake of preserving her painting world, which actually caused it to stagnate and rot, and her manipulations of Ariandel, who the trio can't help but feel sorry for. Either way, in order to prevent their world from incurring a similar fate and the Great Candlestick from having his way (he's pretty sore about not having been made a god on top of everything), they take care to guard their painting from Friede and Ariandel.
  • When Kirby heard that a bunch of Living Drawing deities had ascended, he thought of his battles with Drawcia, a sorceress who was also born from a painting and broke out into the real world wishing to turn it into art. So Kirby visited the new deities to make it clear for himself what their intentions were. Kirby learned that they don't think ill of the real world at all and had nothing against the man who created them, even after making them languish in incompletion for as long as he did. Once that was settled, Kirby decided they were friends, much to the trio's confusion, though they accepted it.
  • As far as deities who are unsatisfied with their home worlds go, Ramo, Lola and Quill were surprised to find a similar case in a totally different piece of media, that of Wreck-it Ralph, who was so sick of playing the bad guy who always lost at the end that he tried to escape his video game. The trio can see where the big guy is coming from, even if they never went as far as wanting to leave their world completely (except maybe Lola); being constantly shunned just for performing his designated role must feel rather similar to how Halfies and Sketchies were treated just for being the way they were when they couldn't help it. They're happy that Ralph managed to find happiness in his world in the end. Lola also seems to have really hit it off with Ralph's best friend Vanellope, with both being on the adventurous side and happy in being imperfect.
  • They have learned to watch out for the fabled Rock of Ages in case it decides to pass by their world; the Rock is known for travelling through various works of art and occasionally influencing what is displayed in a major way (like "The Scream" ending up the way it did because the character's sunscreen was switched out for super-glue). They want to make sure the Rock doesn't have similar irreversible effects in their world.
  • There was one time when a small pink dog called Courage, along with his owners Muriel and Eustace, visited the exhibition with the painting. At that point the planets aligned and something strange happened; the characters in the paintings switched places with the visitors. Courage had been in a similar situation before, but he was still in a panic for Muriel's safety. However this time, Ramo, Lola and Quill were around, and they sympathized with the determined little dog enough to help him. The motley crew managed to get things back to normal in time and saved Muriel and Eustace from becoming characters in a painting forever. Courage is thankful to them for this and considers them friends; the feeling is mutual.

  • Observed by: Freddy Krueger, Spooky, Jonathan Crane Dipper and Mabel Pines, Mystery Inc., Mordecai and Rigby, Luna Lovegood, Question, the Comic Book Guy, Beerus, Whis, Spooky
  • Scott Cawthon was once an obscure computer game designer that no one relatively knew about in particular. At least that was the case until one day he created a construction and management game called Chipper & Sons Lumber Co.. However, the game was harshly criticized, as the characters' stiff movements were likened to unnerving animatronic creatures. Distraught, he fell into a depression until he decided to make one last game before calling it quits for good. This is that game that introduced everyone to their new nightmares and made people never look at Chuck E. Cheese the same way again. The rest, as they say, was history.
  • Considered to be one of the most enigmatic characters of the Pantheon. He constantly throws out hints and clues to his fanbase as they to figure out the complete lore of his world. Even after his initial tale was complete, people are still trying to look into the pieces he left behind. It was decided that no one was better at making his fans tick than Scott.
  • Didn't invent the idea of Hostile Animatronics, but popularized them as the Fazbear gang are the most well-known examples. He liked the idea of .GIFfany, however insists she has nothing to do with the Yandere Chica anime scenes in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator. Mordecai and Rigby have also dealt with Hostile Animatronics before
  • It should be noted that Scott is Christian and is very religious (the man did Christian games once upon a time). He insists that he is not a real god, and is simply happy with being acknowledged for his work. He regularly visits the St. Katherine's Parish to see the nun's performances. Thanks to his humble beginnings Scott became an inspiration to other amateur game developers hoping to create the next big sensation. He even has a few fans in the Pantheon who were in awe of his work.
  • Given how terrifying his works are, there are a few people who don't really like him. Several gods reportedly had nightmares of his minions chasing after them. One game review named Jirard even stated that he had to visit a psychiatrist regularly after reviewing five of his games due to his stress anxiety and absolutely refused to look at his sixth one.
  • Respected by members of the House of Fear, particularly Spooky. Freddy Krueger approves of how he brings out nightmares and the way he kills kids in his games, and Jonathan Crane finds the terror of his games intriguing. Scott would rather keep his distance from them in person.
  • Because of his teasing nature, he gets along well with Andrew Hussie and George R.R. Martin. Though he disagrees with George's habit of killing fan favorites just to shock and break fans. It's because of his strange nature that he's looked on by the likes of the Question, Luna, the Pine Twins, and Mystery Inc. with interest. Scott himself looks up to H.P Lovecraft as a source of writing horror, though fortunately, this hasn't resulted in some major Eldritch Abomination of an animatronic entering the games(well, maybe Golden Freddy).
  • Just wants to make it clear to the SCP Foundation he wasn't behind SCP-429. However, he really likes the horror angle many of the SCPs have and wonders if they could inspire him for more ideas in his games. Depending on who you ask this is terrifying, nice to know, or both.
  • The Comic Book Guy is one of those trying to learn the secrets of his lore. The with every theory fans throughout, they never seem to be getting closer to the truth. The comic guy doesn't seem intimidated by it at all. He welcomes the challenge.
  • Wondered if Mat Pat was in the pantheon, but couldn't find one of his biggest fan theorizer and over-analyzer. Some more cynical deities were pleased because they are want to snark at Cawthon's plots for being all over the place and accuse him of making it up as they go along. Though with Scott, you never know what he planned in advance and what he came up with for the next games.
  • Believe it or not, Scott is the only god in the Pantheon that can transform into an Overdeity by himself through his boss avatar in Five Nights at Freddy's World. At will. With no catch, beyond his own reluctance because the game is an Old Shame of his. This development has confused many of the upper-tier gods, as there has not been such a being to be able to do this before. Beerus and Whis seem to be the ones who are most interested in Scott for this reason, though Beerus seems more interested in seeing how powerful Scott can be when he goes all out.
  • "It was fun being the Puppetmaster, but now I grow weary. It's time to put you in your place. Now let me show you how this game ends."

Alright, who's...

Ready? Five, six, and...

Terence Fletcher, The Abusive Artist (Fletcher)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fletcher_6.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A thrown chair flying in the air
  • Theme Song: Whiplash
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (Lawful Neutral to those he respects)
  • Portfolio: A sinister teacher who is motivated by his self-satisfaction, very bald, prone to swearing and slurs, acts harsh to bring out his students' potential but really just wants his prodigy's glory, brings out their potential anyways with a cost, rules his class with an iron fist to the point of cowardice, more than just an asshole
  • Domains: Control, Jazz Music, Determination, Rage, Perfectionism
  • Herald: Andrew Neiman (his protégé)
  • Amicable Deities: John Kreese, Severus Snape, Gordon Ramsey
  • Evil Counterpart to: Izumi Curtis, Johnny Lawrence
  • Enemies: Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Bill and Ted, Houkago Tea Time, Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, Marty McFly
  • Opposed and Hated by: The Houses of Music and School, Courage the Cowardly Dog
  • Shaffer Conservatory, a prestigious center for musicians and band artists alike. Many musicians aim high at their careers and some are born through effort of the highest degree. The Conservatory has numerous teachers, but none are more feared and avoided than Terence Fletcher. He may have a knack of spotting and recruiting talented musicians compared to other teachers, his methods on the other hand are quite unsavory: physically and psychologically abusing his own students to the point of submission in order to iron out their flaws. After years of trying, Fletcher hit it big when he took an aspiring drummer by the name of Andrew Neiman under his wing and led him to a stellar performance at a music festival. What entailed during the trials of Neiman's learning sessions were filled with blood, sweat and tears as Fletcher's teaching habits and abusive mentality turned one of his own aspiring students into a muddled wreck, until the festival itself where he finally showed his efforts in front of a pleased crowd and his own mentor. While the implications of the performance were less than positive and Neiman's fate moreso, it was enough to show that for all his worth, Fletcher's methods are a prime example of a teacher's ruthlessness when it comes to perfection.
  • Fletcher's day was suddenly distured when a private letter came from one of Shaffer's staff, calling him for a "private session". Calling his class off for the day, he was called for a meeting but not the usual staff meeting. He was sent to a room that was a gateway to a large area akin to a courtroom. From there, he noticed several hooded people of large size discussing about him, of which he could hear and proceeded to disturb their judgement, as well as mentioning his scheduled sessions with Andrew and his class. Ignored, Fletcher suddenly brought out a cymbal to show that he was not joking and answer the reason for this meeting, of which they did and clarified that he was viable for ascension. His title? Very abusive teachers. He was quite okay for such a harmful title but considering who he is, it matches. He was sent back in the Conservatory to resume his classes, aware of his "ascension".
  • His reputation as a teacher is a rather controversial position he is in. The Pantheon has known stories of abusive teachers and he stands among the top. This has lead to many to disvow him positions withinthe Houses of School and Music as they are not willing to add a teacher like him within their list of teachers. Thought thanks to his domain, Fletcher mostly spends his time out in a music classroom he commissioned in the House of Music, open to those who dare seek out his tutelage. Most students are too Weak-Willed to handle his teaching for more than a day, but those who muscle through it end up being better musicians, not without the sacrifice most will have to deal with under his helm, as shown by his herald, Andrew Neiman. Even with his skills being truth of what he can teach, many believe it is not worth it and can be learned through more peaceful alternatives instead of resorting into a perfectionist mindset.
  • Jazz Music is his jam and Fletcher has dedication to such. It does not take long till people realize that dedication can often lead to perfectionism and can foster a nasty host of personalities. He exemplifies all of that, as his desire for perfect musicians creates in him a sadistic and prejudicial mindset towards others, pushing others to their greatest limit. Some (or at least one) have succeeded while others fail and quit or worse, commit suicide, due to his abuse to nearly every student under his helm. That is also accompanied by his awareness to people who see him as such and even does not care about what they think. To many this is enough to be put off by his methods and often than not will choose other teachers over him. He even says it so, implying that a "good job" is simply not enough.
    Fletcher: There are no two words in the English language more harmful than 'good job'
    • Despite this, there are some moments of peace for Fletcher as he can be remorseful and emotional at times. Once crying over the death of his former protégé Sean Casey, and even laughing and playing along with former students of his, suggesting that underneath that perfectionist mentality in him, there lies respect for those he understands with. It is just that he prefers that his methods not be gentle, afterall he sees being gentle as neither productive nor satisfying and prefers to weed out the incompetence of others, even if that means bullying them at their patience in a sadistic manner.
  • The mentioning of his name within the halls of the House of School and Music has left many students and some artists at complete fear, as his story is rather infamous for his harsh methods. His presence has only fanned the flames, some outright kicking him out in some occassions, even to the point that the House of School once planned on banning him. However, some of the advertisements still mention him though there will be a warning afterwards to those interested in being a part of Fletcher's class, which includes anxiety, disconnected relations and well... suicide for the more extreme cases. Even he himself has professed that the advertisement will come in handy as he can have more students outside Shaffer Conservatory.
  • Very few teachers will go to extreme lengths Fletcher is known for, and those that do such have the same infamy placed like him. Case in point: John Kreese. Both him and John follow the same philosophies and are very ruthless in their teachings. Their students have gone through abusive methods to achieve what they have learned and do not care about how the outside perceives them, earning them the infamy the two have scored. Then there is the fact that both of them have the same victory with their students, with Fletcher having Andrew Neiman succeed with his career or not and Kreese having the full control of Cobra Kai and turning the tables against Johnny Lawrence, letting him taste the feeling of being forced to wander the streets. The two can be seen sometimes overseeing their teaching careers even though Fletcher has been fired from it though the Pantheon has overturned it for his position.
    • Severus Snape was called out in some instances for his harsh teaching methods around Hogwarts for some time and so it would seem that the two have each other's attention, with the similar attitude and their dedication for a greater cause. This would seem great for the two of them and in some instances, yes but considering how two of Fletcher's students have suffered troublesome fates despite his best intentions, Snape has yet to warm himself around him, the last thing he wants is the House of School ruined because of an insistent perfectionist.
  • Some people have no mercy towards him for his harsh lessons moreso pitiful for the two protégés he had since the two did kill themselves with some doing so far as to showcase to him how to be both strict yet merciful at the same time. John Kreese's former student Johnny Lawrence was among the first to show him some lessons he learned from past Cobra Kai and even proved he can still be stable after overthrowing Kreese from the Dojo, the latter of which made Fletcher laugh as mentioned with Lawrence being homeless and with nothing left following Cobra Kai being overthrown by his former teacher. The other one however, Izumi Curtis, was far more successful with her showcase, able to teach the Elric Brothers through overcoming harsh lessons (like the one time where she left them stranded on an island just to teach them survival and dependency as brothers) and even called Fletcher out for being an immense prick and a sociopath since she at least have a heart towards the two. He just simply ignored her showcase and walked away, learning nothing from it.
    • However, there are people (or in this case, a dog) who can handle the harsh teachings of similar teachers, provided they can handle their self-esteem. Shown when Courage, the Cowardly Dog, was able to handle the torment of one "Perfect" Teacher through moral guidance and remembering the words "you're not perfect" shown by one nightmare. Though in hindsight, why would Fletcher care for a dog over an actual human, a statement Courage understood as he desperately tried to convince the teacher on change.
    • Even after his time travelling shenanigans, there is something Marty McFly thinks about whenever he sees Fletcher. He reminds him greatly of Principal Strickland and may even believe him to be far worse than the latter, mainly because of the whole mistreat your students idea. Hearing the fate of Andrew after his performance, he called Fletcher out on his teaching methods, mainly because for a teacher to treat his students like trash does not make his intentions noble and for the record, Strickland may be funny to look at but Fletcher not, rather he is scary to look at.
  • Since Music is one of his domains, the House of Music has vehemently allowed him in but the other inhabitants are not so happy with his presence. Some either because of his teaching methods or the fact that his "jazz" is fake (and some even criticising it to be not actually jazz). Among those who he verbally ostracize include Bill and Ted and Houkago Tea Time mainly because their genres, rock and pop, respectively, are the reason why 'jazz is dying'. Even among other music deities, he still gives them a bad rap mainly because some of them, like those within girl bands or boy bands, excuse their incompetence and as a result, has left him dissatisfied with their performances. Instead, he will have to wait to see if there are students willing to join his class.
    • Jazz musicians especially in the case of Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono have ignored him for a while, though Kousei cannot help but be reminded of his mom who was also a perfectionist in his piano lessons whenever he sees Fletcher. At one point, hearing his notes, he came in and berated his piano skills for not being on par, and with true sadistic fashion mocked him for not moving on from Kaori's death, pushing him in the break of his patience. After he left in tears, Fletcher has one thing to say to drive home his lack of empathy:
      Fletcher: You are a worthless, friendless, faggot-lipped little piece of shit whose mommy left daddy when she figured out he wasn't Eugene O'Neill and who's now weeping and slobbering all over a piano set like a fucking nine-year-old girl!
  • Spider-Man cannot help but think Fletcher is another version of J. Jonah Jameson since he is eerily similar from their strict guidelines and lack of care towards their employees/students. He admits that he would prefer Jameson since he does not border in sociopathic when it comes to personality, if anything, Jameson just has bias while Fletcher is both sociopathic and ruthless. Then the similarities come around with a certain mortal who did a rather good impression as Jameson. Jameson's response however showed that he is different to Fletcher in many ways, especially on the employees part. He does care about them it is just that he has to maintain some form of order in his job, case in point: him actually defending his employees in an actual demonic invasion.
  • Anger between two perfectionist types will often result with large amounts of shouting and in some cases, bragging about who got to teach better in their respective arts. It would not be a surprise that the first encounter of both Gordon Ramsey and Fletcher lead to intense shouting between the two. Then came them bragging about their teaching and how many people managed to earn their respect, with Ramsey having quite many and Fletcher having only two who are also dead. In the end, Ramsey had the better reputation as he is not willing to put other people's lives at risk for their profession while Fletcher will go tooth and nail to achieve his desired results.
  • Fletcher has another house seated right under Personality, on Extrovert Flaws.
  • "Not quite my tempo."
