    Hatsune Hirasaka 
Hatsune Hirasaka, Goddess of Jorogumos (The Spinner in Darkness, Atlach Nacha, The Girl with Red Eyes, Hirasaka-Sama)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hatune001.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess, Greater Goddess at her full strength and true form.
  • Symbol: A Spider Web coiling around a naked, half-eaten corpse.
  • Theme Song: Going On (All one hundred versions)
  • Alignment: Pure Chaotic, has none, and no longer comprehends human ethics. Does many Chaotic, and Neutral Evil acts, as well as some selfless Chaotic Good acts. On the best of days, would be considered Chaotic Neutral. On the worst, Chaotic Evil.
  • Portfolio: Badass Gay, Tends to Target Other Rapists, Surprisingly Polite, Is the "Heroine" of Her Game, Spider Webbing, Prefers Girls Over Men, Who She Usually Eat, Glowing, Crimson Eyes, Better Than Her Arc-Nemesis, Genuinely Loves Kanako, Is Willing To Result to Rape, But Is Capable of Seducing Them With Normal Means, Chose to Become a Monster After Being Gang-Raped, Tortured, And Sacrificed by Her Village In the Muromachi Period
  • Domains: Darkness, Spiders, Cunning, Spider Webs
  • Herald: Miyama Kanako
  • Allies: Skull Face, Gabriel Belmont, Sebastian Michaelis, Ato-ko Shirogane
  • Friendly Enemies: Spider-Man
  • Enemies: Satan, Other rapists, Morrigan and Lilith Aensland, many other demons, Slannesh, Coraline Jones and Chihiro Ogino
  • Ignores: Lucifer
  • Feeds off the flesh of humans, or their sexual energy with humans, very much needing celestial energy to survive. As a Jorogumo, Hastune takes the form of a young schoolgirl (Which is offshot by her blazing red eyes) to blend in better with society. Unlike most of her species, Hatsune is attracted to the same gender, though she's willing to have sex with a male if she must. In actuality, her true form is a huge, rather hideous Giant Spider.
  • While Hatsune seems physically un-intimidating in her human form, don't let that fool you, she's still a killing machine. Possessing super strength and speed, along with the ability to manifest huge-spider like limbs from her back and hands, fighting her unless prepared is a bad idea. That's not even going into her true spider form.
  • Pissing her off is a very very horrible idea, as she will literally tear you apart, and devour you with a grin. Hurt Kanako, and she will add raping your corpse to that list.
  • While Hatsune doesn't care at all for her demonic brethren in the Pantheon, she at least has respect for Sebastian due to his class. While Sebastian doesn't care for her appetite, he readily acknowledges her politeness, loyalty to Kanako, and has made remarks that she would make a tolerable maid.
    • Doesn't get along with Morrigan and Lilith though. Despite the similarities between Succubi and Jorogumo, the duo doesn't like Hatsune's tendency to devour human flesh and how she forces herself upon others.
  • After hearing about her apparent disdain in humans, Satan went to welcome his fellow demonic sister into the Patheon and was greeted to the scene of Hatsune, rather tenderly, making love with her human lover/servant Kanako. Satan flew into a rage, demanding what she was doing by having sex with a human and taking human shape. Hatsune, in turn, dropped her normal politeness and demanded the Fallen Angel to leave, or she would kill him slowly, before devouring his corpse. Satan merely scoffed muttering under his breath about how "monkey lovers" aren't worthy of his attention.
    • Later, Lucifer himself, knowing her power, connection to chaos, and demonic nature offered her a moderately high position in the GUAC. Curiously, Hatsune turned him down, telling him she stands alone. Lucifer, chuckled, casually telling her her view on humanity is rather hypocritical, considering she views her lover, Kanako in very high regard. The two haven't talked since.
  • Despite being invited to join the GUAE, and GUAC, Hatsune chose to align with neither of them, disliking the GUAE for there status of being evil for the sake of it (While Hatsune does evil acts to survive), and thinks the GUAC doesn't embody the true spirit of chaos, which is doing whatever needs to be done for herself to "Keep going on".
  • Doesn't get many visitors, more to do with the fact both heroes and villains keep a safe distance away from her. Heroes, because of her willingness to use depraved tactics, and villains, because more often then not, she preys on them, then the fact that she keeps her nest very... messy, leaving around the cocooned remains of her victims everywhere.
    • Though Skull Face of all people, has been seen visiting her, apparently relating to her backstory, due to the fate of him and his own village. He knows a thing or two about using horrific methods to fight against a greater evil.
  • Has common ground with Gabriel, who sympathizes with the fact she was forced into being a monster just like him, and shares similar views about humanity.
  • Ultimately, the thing that she hates most in the world is herself.
  • To the entire Pantheons shock Hatsune and... Spider-Man, appear to be on friendly terms. When asked by his fellow Superheroes, Peter claimed they hang out on the occasion. Despite this, knowing her rather... unusual eating habits, Spidey will stop her if she goes too far, but has no problem hanging out with her on one of her good days, knowing how lonely the spider-demon is. Hey, web-crawlers need to stick together.

    Koneko Toujou 
Koneko Toujou, Goddess of Nekomata (Hellcat, Shirone, Hypnobutt (call her the latter at your own risk))

Nyotengu no Miyama, Goddess of Tengus (Naughty Tengu Princess)

    Sadako Yamamura 
Sadako Yamamura, Goddess of Stringy Haired Ghost Girls
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the-ring-sadako-is-a-stringy-haired-ghost-girl.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Either a stone well, or an ordinary looking video cassette.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Stringy Haired Ghost Girls, Haunted Technology, Blinding Bangs, The Faceless, Psychic Powers, Tragic Villains, Sealed Evil in a Can, Unsettling Gender Reveal, Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, Xanatos Gambits
  • Domains: Ghosts, Water, Darkness, Revenge, Curses
  • Herald: Towel Man
  • High Priest: Samara Morgan
  • Followers: Mitsuko, Natre
  • Allies: Mononobe no Futo
  • Enemies: Hisako, the entire House of Technology.
  • Complicated Relationship: Erma, Pinkie Pie.
  • Sadako was formerly the high priest for Samara, but ascended herself after Kayako Saeki attacked her. It was suggested that Sadako and Samara act as co-goddesses. Inspector Zenigata received two cursed videotapes in the post, which were removed by the SCP Foundation. In the end, Sadako was voted into the position, and Samara demoted to high priestess.
  • A lot of the Pantheon freaked out when it was revealed that Sadako is genetically male. She found odd comfort in Princess Ozma, who had been in a similar position but vice versa, who told her "I know how you feel".
  • Due to Sadako's Divine Parentage, there has been mass speculation who her anonymous, supernatural father is. Aquaman, Davy Jones and most gods with psychic powers have denied it. It is suspected that her father also conceived Samara at some point due to their near identical simularities.
  • Banned from the House of Technology for good reason.
  • Approached Manny Calavera to ask him how to escape her eternal damnation, but all he said was to find a hole to hide in. Sadako then chucked him down her well and haunted him for a week.
  • Horrified when all of her cursed videotapes were recorded over with episodes of The Clangers. Samara offered several of her own until she made new copies.
  • Attempted to invade Teletubbyland but that backfired when she knocked Tinky Winky into a brief coma when attempting to crawl out of his stomach telly.
  • A pretty skilled user of the Xanatos Gambit, telekinetically creating a DNA-copying virus that can either kill victims or impregnate them with clones of her to ensure she survives.
  • Vanellope Von Schweetz and Rainbow Dash tricked Mario, Luigi and Fix It Felix to venture down into Sadako's well to make it more hospitable, but were chased out by Sadako.
  • Sees YouTube as a possible source to spread her curse, only to receive copyright messages from Viacom every time she has tried. Sadako intends on sending a videotape to Viacom's bosses at some point.
  • Secretly likes the House of Theatre due to her past hobbies and would like to restart her acting career if not for her current condition.
  • To her surprise, was once approached by (read: tackle hugged into the ground,) a ghost girl whom believed her to be her mother. However, shortly after, she realized her mistake and quickly got off her. Upon learning of the fact that Erma's own mother looks like her, Sadako has eased up on her, and will try to act friendly to her whenever she seems her. Sadako does wish that Erma would stop pulling her back through TVs of those that watched her tape. Her chances of succeeding in her plans have greatly diminished due to how the other ghost girl is willing to step up and personally intervene with her whenever she tries to kill her victims.
  • She has a complex relationship with the Ponies of Equestria, possessing a hatred for horses. However, an encounter with Pinkie Pie changed all that. She discovered the strange peppy pony apparently possessed similar powers, could emerge from TVs, and even had a Superpowered Evil Side nicknamed "Pinkamena", complete with long, stringy hair. While Samara shunned Pinkie (and all other horses), Sadako was drawn to her. Pinkie now makes unannounced visits to her well, often by cannonball.

    Yuugi Hoshiguma 
Yuugi Hoshiguma, The Oni Goddess (Yuugi the Strong, The Rumored Unnatural Phenomenon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_th11yuugi.png
  • Theme Music: A Flower-Studded Sake Dish on Mt Ooe
  • Intermediate Goddess. We think.
  • Symbol: Her drinking dish
  • Alignment: True Neutral to Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Gorgeous Powerhouse, With a Nice Rack, Prefers to Use her Fists, Unrivaled Strength, Drinking A Lot, Even While Fighting, Boisterous Bruiser, Horned Humanoid, Broken Shackles, Honestly
  • Domains: Oni, Power, Drinking, Honesty
  • High Priestess: Suika Ibuki
  • Followers: Kamikirimusi, Kinu, Lum Invader, Gargaros, Ogralus, Orcanos, The Oni Kamen Riders
  • Allies: Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Adell, Daidouji, Sophia Velmer, Cana Alberona, Haruka Tenoh, Tsunade, Homer Simpson
  • Respects: The Strong and The Honest
  • Hates: The Weak who think they are better than they are, The Sly and The Dishonest
  • Enemies: Dan Hibiki, Mr. Satan, Yuuki Terumi, Colette Brunel, Kisuke Uzuki (on his side)
  • Opposed by: House of Food
  • She was part of a plan by Yukari Yakumo to bring in more youkai into the Pantheon. She really enjoyed her ascension, as it allowed her to meet with new people, humans and demons alike, after spending so much time in the Former Hell, and getting to see how strong man has grown. Though she likes to remind people that she is still an oni, not a kishin.
    • Though after she heard where she was placed, she commented that "I might be rather tall, but I am not really a giant".
  • Once she ascended, the first thing she did was to invite bunch of people over to see if they can best her. There was a lot of collateral damage done because of that. And she beat most of the opposition. All while drinking. And apparently she was holding back all that time. Where the list of gods is unknown, the Doomguy seemed to have been one of them.
  • The House of Food really doesn't like her, as she drinks alcohol like no other, especially sake. Pair her up with Cana, who is one of few gods what can apparently keep up with her, as well as Tsunade and Homer, and most of the drink supplies in the House tend to go down to nothing. It has come to the point where Yomi is asked to give some of her beans to others so that they can fry them and start throwing them at her so that she goes away.
    • However, while she's there, she can offer some people to drink from her dish, what is known to enchant the quality of the sake poured into it
  • One of humans who have impressed her the most is Daidouji, who challenged her to a fight to see if her strength could rival that of an oni. Yuugi was impressed by how powerful she was, to the point where Daidouji managed to swat away her drinking dish (so yes, her sake did drop). And where Yuugi won by finally letting loose, she was still impressed how a human like her possesses such power.
  • She is sometime seen training even further in case Akuma decides to turn into Oni, in order to show him the true power of an oni-like oni.
  • Spends quite a lot time near House of Ghosts to keep the more unwieldy spirits in check.
  • Many gods have asked her to what does her power to "wield unexplainable phenomena" means. So far, she hasn't really explained it due of feeling like she would lie about it. Though it seems to center around stuff what cannot be explained by normal and irregular means.
  • Heard that there is some one who wanted to become "The Queen of All Oni". Was sort of disappointed that the girl was Jade, but believed that she had no intentions to actually become one.
    • She was also disappointed how the so called "Oni Division" of Toku Base doesn't have any actual oni in it.
  • Buddies with Haruka due of the notion that she has a relation with Parsee Mizuhashi. She herself thinks that she is just some bitter neighbour.
  • If you're wondering, she is a "red oni". Though funnily enough, her friend, Suika Ibuki, is also a "red oni".
  • Some rather lucky gods have sometimes seen her wearing a blue kimono. Though as tempting as it might be, they know not to try to do anything with her unless they want to run the risk of getting brutally beaten by her.
  • Do not confuse her with Yugi Muto. And especially not with Yuuki Terumi, who she hates for being a sly bastard who ultimately keeps on telling the (twisted) truth, something what oni value. And after hearing what he did to Aya Shameimaru one time, she knows that she shouldn't just charge head first into him.

Lesser Gods

    Dunsparce 
Dunsparce, God of Tsuchinko (The Land Snake Pokemon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/206dunsparce_0.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Its tail
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Serene Grace
  • Moveset: Drill Run, Body Slam, Dragon Rush, Roost
    • Z-Move: Breakneck Blitz
  • Portfolio: Our Monsters Are Weird (specifically the Tsuchinko), Butt-Monkey, Crutch Character With A Really Good Ability, Non-Elemental With A Buttload Of Varied Moves, Wings Do Nothing, Eyes Always Shut
  • Domains: Youkai, Snakes, Cryptids, Monsters, Oddness, Caves
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Rubeus Hagrid, Steve Irwin, Quetzacoatl, Piglet, Karin Maaka
  • Enemies: Team Rocket, The Killer Rabbit, Apophis, Ragior Stonehoof
  • Envies: Salamence
  • Dunsparce is an odd-looking Pokemon, to say the least. The Land Snake Pokemon is based on the Japanese Youkai and cryptid known as the tsuchinko, a fat snake-like creature with a stinger. While it's stats aren't that impressive, it is useful early on and can get Serene Grace, which boosts the likelihood of moves having additional effects. And it can learn a number of moves to exploit this.
  • It's easy to think Dunsparce has a complex about it's odd appearance given it lives in caves and in darkness. This Dunsparce certainly does, and doesn't like people gawking at him. For this reason, he soon found himself getting along with Betty Suarez due to her own body conscious issues and became her partner. They look after each other and compliment each other's appearances.
  • Because of how timid and self-conscious Dunsparce is, he found himself relating to Karin Maaka due to how often she got herself in embarrassing situations. He also found himself relating to Piglet given that Piglet's a Lovable Coward, similar to the Dunsparce in the pantheon.
  • Sometimes tries to pass off as a dragon or bug, only for most there to laugh it off. The Land Snake Pokemon soon found himself jealous of Salamence. Dunsparce can merely float a bit with his wings, while Salamence has glorious red wings and is an effective flyer. And Salamence likes to remind Dunsparce of this. Amusingly the two Pokemon are the same size, being 4 foot 11.
  • Being mostly serpentine, Dunsparce is accepted in the House of Reptiles. He was pretty terrified of Apophis, which is was pretty justified. However Quetzacoatl was a friendly serpent who the Land Snake Pokemon felt comfortable near. Quetzacoatl pitied how the fellow winged serpent could barely fly, and let Dunsparce ride on his back to make him feel better.
  • As mention, Dunsparce prefers darkness and caves. If spotted, it flees by digging underground and travels in tunnels. One of these ended up intersecting the same burrow as the Killer Rabbit, who reacted violently to its territory being disturbed. Dunsparce's next tunnelling ended up with him being underneath Ragior Stonehoof while pulling an earthquake off, which is seriously deadly to any underground Pokemon.
  • Both Rubeus Hagrid and Steve Irwin were fond of Dunsparce despite, or perhaps because of the Pokemon's odd appearance. This really helped out his self-conscious personality. As did meeting Perry the Platypus, given that platypi are rather strange animals and as such make Dunsparce feel more normal.
  • For whatever reason, people like to utter the phrase "Dunsparce Real" whenever they see it around. After hearing of a chubby-snake creature coming into the Pantheon, some Monster Hunters from the New World made a mad dash to catch Dunsparce under the premise that it wouldn't be here long. Others tend to scold these individuals while also looking out for a giant Elder Dragon wreathed in gold.
  • Its tendency to burrow underground in order to flee also had it run into Taikun Zamuza by bumping into it while it was camouflaged as rock. Luckily unlike its previous encounters with the Killer Rabbit and Ragior Stonehoof the Carapaceon let it scamper off. Aside from showing signs to back off, it let the Land Snake Pokemon scamper off with little trouble while it went back to hiding.
  • A fan game posits a possible evolution called Dunseraph, a Dragon/Flying Pokemon. Sometimes it wishes this evolution was part of the official Pokemon universe but it can summon it from time to time, only for it to return back to its home universe.

    Mamizou Futatsuiwa 
Mamizou Futatsuiwa, Goddess of Tanukis (The Tanuki Youkai With Ten Transformations, Mami)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th145mamizou2.png
  • Lesser Goddess (though is way smarter than that)
  • Symbol: A leaf
  • Theme Music: Futatsuiwa from Sado, which she occasionally sings along to; when she gets serious, it changes to Futatsuiwa from Gensokyo, and if you've somehow managed to piss her off, well...
  • Alignment: True Neutral to Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tanuki, Cool Old Lady, Shapeshifter, Meganekko, Monster Boss, Little Bit Beastly, Beware the Silly Ones, Manipulative Bitch, Old-Timer Manners.
  • Domains: Tanuki, Shapeshifters, Manipulation
  • Followers: Shigaraki, Manuke, Hachi, Danzaburo
  • Allies: Hata no Kokoro, Tom Nook, Kisuke Uzumi, Hayate Yagami, Men in Black, Nue Houjuu
  • Enemies: Kurama, Fox McCloud, Ahri, really, foxes in general.
  • Originally slipped into the Pantheon at the behest of her old friend Nue Houjuu to prevent Toyosatomimi no Miko's ascension. However, by the time Mamizou arrived, Miko had already revived and ascended with her rival, Byakuren Hijiri, to the throne of Dueling Messiahs in the House of Faith. Still, the elder tanuki decided to remain around, lounging and playing with everyone she finds interesting. She and Yukari Yakumo sometimes hold personal trolling contests. Yukari's winning by a very slight margin.
  • As a tanuki, she can turn her appearance to anything she fits, from persons, to animals and even inanimate objects, and can do it to other people. However, she is only able to transform the subject's appearance, not powers and she cannot completely hide her tail.
    • Because of this, her tanuki minions, and her rather sharp mind, she is probably one of the greatest shape manipulators in the Pantheon. Though she doesn't have quite a long-term plan going on. And she usually does try to be careful about certain things, like people crossing the border with humans and non-humans.
  • She seems to be partners with Tom Nook. However, no one is sure who is the one in charge.
  • She has a rather large dislike forwards foxes in general. She isn't hostile towards them, but she keeps her eye on them.
    • However, she would like to address that she has no problems with humans. While she does play pranks on them, she is willing to help humans in need, and would like to keep a stable relation between them and non-humans (even if she favours non-humans and is known to manipulate people to her advantage).
      • However, it should be noted that the way Gensoukyo works is that youkai are meant to keep humans in constant fear and as such. It's just that causing harm in the only true human settlement is something what youkai are not supposed to do.
    • She is also willing to put a temporal truce between her and foxes in crisis. Like if anything would want to free Inugami. This, and the fact that she promised to keep certain people in check, is why Kisuke is sort of allies with her.
  • She does not have balls (we think). Neither does she have rather large breasts. Stop asking.
  • She would like to inform people that the Tanooki Suits that Mario and his friends wear do not come from actual tanuki skin. The power-ups they get simply transform into the suits. If the former was the case, she would have done something ages ago. She is utterly confused why Luigi gets a fox-themed costume, however.
  • Seemingly adored by Boomstick. She likes the compliment, and does sympathize with him in regarding a a certain tanuki.
  • She avoids going anywhere Doraemon due of his rather angry reaction when people call him a tanuki.
  • When she adopted the idea of The Men in Black as a theme when everybody else was taking themes from Urban Legends, she eventually got involved with the real Men in Black. Even aliens need to know their place in this society.
  • Mamizou is allies with Hayate Yagami due to her being compared to a tanuki because of her mischievousness.
  • After meeting her old friend Nue Houjuu again, they immediately marched straight into the House of Food for a good, ol' fashioned sake binge.

    Nitori Kawashiro 
Nitori Kawashiro, High Prophet of Kappas (Super Youkai Warhead)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th155nitori.png
  • Theme Music: Akutagawa Ryuunosuke's Kappa ~ Candid Friend
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her hat
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Kappas, Cute Monster Girl, Making a Splash, Gadgeteer Genius, Wrench Wench, Shy Blue-Haired Girl Until She Took a Level in Jerkass, Insufferable Genius, Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, Hollywood Atheist, Professional Butt-Kisser
  • Domains: Kappas, Inventors, Jerks.
  • Followers: Coo, Ludicolo, Kapp'n, Kappah Nosuke, Walkappa, Faux Kappa.
  • Allies: Skuld, Kokonoe A. Mercury, Kyogre, Lapras, Blastoise.
  • Rivals: Kira Daidouji.
  • Enemies: The Mob.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Aya Shameimaru
  • A kappa of the Youkai Mountain, she at first looks like a nice girl, if a bit shy. However, beneath that look lies an genuine jerk who looks down on other species. However, she is still a genius and will happily do business with other people. Just don't be surprised if she starts swindling you.
    • However, she does have much better track record of selling genuinely good stuff than say Bubs, and has done other stuff what are genuine work, so she has her good sides.
  • Refuses to call herself a goddess due do the fact that she isn't particularly religious person. She sort of dislikes the attention and such. Though she doesn't really want to disproof other people's godhoods, she just considers them being business partners for her faith and such.
  • One of few traditional youkai who Kisuke doesn't quite hate due of him being familiar with friendly kappas. Nitori herself is keeping herself on his good side, because she knows what he can do to her fellow kappas, alongside other youkai.
  • She supposedly becomes bit friendlier forwards you if you give her cucumbers.
  • Some gods wonder why she doesn't look like a traditional kappa should. Nitori then uses this as a threat, warning that is can quite easily become a "traditional kappa"... including the part where she will rip your shirikodama out of your anus, alongside other things which are so scary and disturbing that a only recording of this (nicknamed "Cucumber Flavored Yukkuri") is too much for public viewing.
  • She once mistook The Turtles to kappas due of hearing other peoples do the same thing, after which she was confused why they call them that. Though she hates The Mob for associating kappas with something completely different thing.
    • ...Which is why the Trollkaiger once put wallpapers around her temple plastered with the "kappa face". She has sworn to get revenge on them one day.
  • Has been seen building a mechanical version of Lapras. When asked why, she said "I have my personal projects, okay?".
  • Unlike Kokonoe, she does look Kira as a potential rival of sort, making her one of few humans she respects.

    Weavile 
Weavile, Goddess of Kamaitachi (The Sharp Claw Pokémon, Manyula)

  • Opposes: The Incubators, The Sub-House of Fire & Heat
  • Opposed by: The House of Food, Foghorn Leghorn, The Sub-Houses of Birds & Rabbits & Rodents, The Chocobos, Murkrow
  • Weavile, the Sharp Claw Pokémon, is a form of Yokai known as a Kamaitachi; weasel-like spirits who ride in on cold winds and slice through unsuspecting victims with their scythe-like claws. The final evolution of Sneasel, these Pokémon are a rare occurrence throughout Sinnoh, Johto, Kanto, Unova, Kalos, Alola, and Galar, only emerging at night to prey on everything from bird eggs, to Vulpix and Sandshrews. The individual seen in the Pantheon, a female with shortened head feathers, was caught raiding the chicken pens in the House of Food, slicing through several gods before being captured. Team Rocket's Meowth was called in to translate, and it was through him that the reason for her thievery became clear. The Weavile was simply trying to feed her offspring, two Sneasel kits who were just reaching maturity. The Court of the Gods realized the Dark/Ice Type wasn't being malicious, and decided to let Weavile stay, giving her a temple and position in the Pantheon. She instantly took the job, but was a little disappointed by the single condition; not to steal anymore eggs. That part was more difficult than assumed but she's tried to keep that promise.
  • Her temple leads to the Sinnoh region. More specifically, the northern portion of the region, along Routes 216 & 217. It consists of a vast and snowy mountain range, covered with thick forests and home to a variety of Ice, Grass and even Fighting type Pokémon. It's also a great place to ski... provided you don't collide with a Snorunt or Abomasnow.
  • Weavile's entrance caught the eye of several other Yokai-based deities, including one Erma Williams. The little girl was intrigued by the Pokémon's unique appearance and powers, and even brought it and the Sneasel Brothers home for tea parties. After that, they became partners, with Erma occasionally bringing her new companion to show to her extended Yokai family.
    • It has made things awkward when Weavile met the onryō, Sadako Yamamura, mistakenly under the impression she was Erma's mother. The ghost woman quickly corrected the Pokémon but ever since they've kept their distance from each other, mostly due to Dark type attacks being strong against Ghost types.
  • Despite her Kamaitachi heritage, Weavile has had a difficult time befriending the other weasels in the Pantheon, probably because, well... Most of them aren't friendly. The Toon Patrol wants nothing to do with what they consider a "stay at home mom" - which she hates being called - and Kyubey? Well there's a reason she stays away from that gremlin.
  • Due to her Dark and Ice typing, Weavile was quick to attract the attention of the Pantheon's many cryo and necromancers, with some encounters more positive than negative. It was a given that she would get along with most of the Pantheon's Ice and Dark type Pokemon, with Lapras, Cryogonal, Umbreon, and Absol being high on the list. Absol in particular relates with Weavile as both have to deal with the negative stereotypes surrounding Dark Type Pokémon on a regular basis.
    • On the side of ice-wielders, Mei-Ling Zhou and Sub-Zero sympathize with the Sharp Claw Pokémon's need to protect her family and have offered to help her in whatever way they can. As well, Waterbending master Katara and her brother Sokka also have become allies with Weavile, with the former carrying a chunk of NeverMeltIce to boost the weasel's Ice type attacks. Mister Freeze, while a little on the cold side, is on good terms with, and has come to his defence when Batman came knocking on one occasion.
    • In regards to Dark magic wielders, Weavile gets along well enough with the Twilight Princess Midna and Absol's human partner, Riku. Having been corrupted by Xehanort in the past, Riku is all too familiar with people viewing the darkness as simply evil, as light and darkness are both essential to life. Both Midna and Riku vouched for Weavile's ascension and for that, Weavile was thankful for it.
  • She's friends with Ash and Pikachu after hearing they helped another Weavile reclaim his place in a pack. This came as a surprise, as the first time the pair encountered a Weavile of any kind, it was under the ownership of Kidd Summers, a researcher they had assumed was evil. It's lead to some awkward meetings with Mew but, much to her relief, it doesn't hold any grudges.
  • Being a Dark/Ice type, Weavile possesses a plethora of weaknesses, including Fire, Rock, Bug, Fairy, Steel, and especially Fighting. As such, she avoids all Fighting-type Pokémon in the Pantheon like the plague, mostly due to them being able to easily defeat her...
  • Despite her Ice typing, Weavile stays the hell away from the likes of Kaldr, Arthas and the Night King, all of whom desire to plunge the Pantheon into eternal winter. It's gotten to the point where she's allied herself with Jon Snow and the Night's Watch in an attempt to stop the White Walkers and other undead armies.
  • The Alpha of the trio, it is Weavile's duty to protect her Sneasel offspring from villain groups such as Team Rocket, who wish to exploit them for their own evil deeds. Lately, she's noticed that several Rocket grunts have been hijacking Poke Stops around the Pantheon, and several Pokémon have been corrupted. She's teamed up with Ash and Pikachu to put an end to this mayhem.
    • Surprisingly, Weavile was quick to befriend Team Galactic's leader Cyrus, despite his universe-altering ambitions. It may have something to do with him owning a Weavile of his own, and also because of his friend Hareta, who took to training her Sneasel twins to prepare them for the future.
  • During a food-gathering heist, Weavile heard rumours of another red and black figure going around attacking prey with some backup. Assuming this was another pack of Sneasel and Weavile, she decided to investigate and offer an alliance. She was disappointed to find out that was a human named Sora, but understood that he's mainly fighting to keep her pack's prey from being corrupted by members of Team GO Rocket. They agree to perform a team-up should they strike again.
  • Despite her promise to not steal from the House of Food, Weavile will still go after the nests and eggs of other birds, sometimes even dining on rodents and lagomorphs like real world weasels. As such, she's become the subject of scorn from the Pantheon's resident birds, rodents and rabbits. Mrs. Brisby gets plenty of unwanted flashbacks of Dragon, whilst the Chocobos and Foghorn Leghorn keep an eye on her, the latter being reminded of a weasel he knew back in his home world. Interestingly, the Pantheon's local Murkrow gang have grown to become enemies/rivals to Weavile's group, due to their eggs being periodically stolen by her.
  • One time while foraging for food, Weavile came into contact with a gigantic, shark-like amphibian called Zamtrios. A fearsome predator with the ability to forge ice-armour on its body and inflate itself to crush its opponents, it nearly killed the poor Pokémon before she could escape. Ever since, she's kept her distance.
  • Weavile took part in the third Smash tournament, using False Swipe to cut down opponents. Sadly, she wasn't invited to the later tournaments but at the very least, it meant she didn't have to contend with Galeem and Dharkon transforming her into a bodiless spirit.

    Youmu Konpaku 
Youmu Konpaku, Goddess of Hitodama Light (The Half-Ghost Gardener, Myon, Ghost 2B)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th105youmu_529.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her two swords, Roukanken and Hakurouken and her ghost half
  • Theme Music: Hiroari Shoots a Strange Bird ~ Till When?
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Being Half-Human and Half-Ghost, Young Samurai, Doesn't Think Too Hard, Katanas What Cleave Spirits, Super Speed, Undying Loyalty, Relatively Badass Normal
  • Domains: Swords, Hybrids, Ghosts, Gardeners
  • Allies: Yuyuko Saigyouji (her mistress), Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Casper, Gengar, 2B
  • Rivals: Kisuke Uzuki
  • Annoyed by: Champions of Runeterra
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sakuya Izayoi (her relationship with her debatable due to the large and inconsistent fanon)
  • Has been in the Pantheon for quite some time, but simply as her mistress Yuyuko's assistant. One day, however, decided that her loyalty would be rewarded somehow... even if Youmu had no idea that she was going to become an actual goddess.
  • Her ghost-half tends to provoke phasmophobia on others who suffer it. She doesn't intent it in any way, but whenever she gets near them, they tend to get a a chill down their spine. Though she isn't quite immune to it herself. One time, Yayoi Kise, upon meeting her, started telling a ghost story she once heard. Youmu was out faster than Yayoi can remember her friend Nao going.
    • Note that Youmu is afraid of imaginary horrors. Actual monsters? No problem. Stories and costumes of monsters what might not exist? Problem.
  • Small parts of fanon give her a bit of a strange affinity to Sakuya Izayoi, another fellow white-haired girl (Youmu's is arguably more paler however) and stage 5 servant boss who also is a master of bladed-weaponry. Very few but strong parallels have been drawn between the two, but their actual relationship with each other is still ambiguous at best.
    • One most likely thing that ties them together is her either fangirling her via Onee-sama-style, or the fact that both of them are made to be notable JoJo's Bizarre Adventure references; in Youmu's case, many people parallel her with Jean Pierre Polnareff in terms of being white-haired and a knack for swift swordsmanship.
      • Also tends to be someone annoyed in that people have some rather devious pairings of her and Reisen Udongein Inaba in some rather....notable relationships. Youmu states outright she does not roll that way, so it seems.
  • Boasts that things her Roukanken, forged by the youkai, are close to none ("close to none" being soccer balls and bad jokes). This did draw the attention of Kisuke, who mistook the "forged by the youkai" part meaning that it is a Demon Blade, and has tried to destroy the blade. However, Youmu seems to be oblivious of Kisuke's intentions and thinks he simply wants to fight her.
  • Really wishes that the Champions of Runeterra would just stop stealing her Roukanken to themselves. One time, she tried to trick one of them taking her other sword, Hakurouken, but quickly stopped herself when she realised that they might accidentally purify a ghost with it. At the very least they should stop calling her "Youmuu" (especially via incorrect romaji).
  • The Ghostbusters actually tried to capture her once, but she managed to run away before anything could happen. Then again, some gods wonder what happens if her ghost half would get captured...
  • Is baffled when people say that she sounds like Madoka, having no idea where they get that from. But it seems to also tie into sounding like another skilled swordswoman by the name of Yuuki Konno.
    • Funny enough, she also may or may not be friends with another ghost by the name of Reimi Sugimoto, and in one other instance, Reimi (along with another individual by the name of Miles "Tails" Prower) has had the same voice as Youmu as well.
      • From there, there are small inside gags amongst some gods in that while Youmu seems to be Tails' parallel, people may be wondering if Sakuya's her Sonic…?
  • Is supposed to be Yuyuko's gardener, but behaves more as her bodyguard/servant. In fact, she was supposed to be Yuyuko's swordsmanship tutor to fill in for her missing father, but the ghost harbored no interest. Ironically, she has since drawn a few other sword-users and those aspiring to learn.

    Kogasa Tatara 
Kogasa Tatara, Goddess of Karakasas (The Cheery Forgotten Umbrella, The New Youkai Moe~)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_th12kogasa.png
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: An Umbrella Ghost
  • Theme Music: Beware the Umbrella Left There Forever
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Parasol of Pain, The Chew Toy, Surprisingly Popular Character, Crappy Powers which are Actually Awesome, Recurring Boss, Moe, Feeding on Surprises
  • Domains: Umbrellas, Surprises
  • Followers: Gintama Kagura, Shizumaru Hisame, Pallysol, Brokenbrella
  • Allies: Yagyuu
  • Being an youkai who was born from an umbrella what was thrown away, her original role as the Goddess of Umbrellas was given to her. However, one day, a mortal called Yagyuu challenged her for the position. Kogasa's combat abilities were outmatched and she lost her original position. The two of them are in good relationship with each other even after that.
  • However everyone in the Pantheon was greatly surprised to learn of her original deification. Admit it, you are too.
  • Some gods in House of Crafts have asked if she is a doujin artist. Kogasa is confused by that question.
    • Some time later, they asked her if she was a blacksmith, like the one-eyed, one-legged youkai Ippon Datara. Surprisingly, she said yes.
  • After she got dethroned of her original position, most gods though that she would be gone. However, when people were minding their own businesses, a loud "Urameshiya!" was heard in the House of Mentalism. When gods came to see where the voice came, Kogasa had a built a small temple for herself in there, surprising eveyone. After examination on her feats on surprising the player, it was decided that she would get a new position as the Goddess of Surprises.
  • She could be immeasurably more powerful if she ever realized the nature of her abilities as a Semantic Superpower and how they aren't bound by the Fourth Wall. After all, even Overdeities could be surprised in the most unexpected of ways. The fact Kogasa hasn't noticed is considered a major blessing for the Pantheon and everyone has tacitly agreed it's better to let sleeping dragons lie rather than unleash the potential of the Forgotten Umbrella.
  • She doesn't care about what kind of surprises people do. Was it delightful surprises like Pinkie Pie pulling a surprise party or a brick laying surprise like Fiddlestick coming out of nowhere to scare some one. She herself does like to try to pull off surprises which scare people, though.
