  • August 18th, Universal Century 0079. A reconnaissance mission to a recently-constructed space colony in Side 7 would have dire consequences for its residents. For this colony held three of the most advanced mobile suits in history: the RX-75-4 Guntank, RX-77-2 Guncannon and last but not least, the RX-78-2 Gundam. These state of the art war machines were the Earth Federation's Macguffin, designed to turn the tide of the One Year War being ridden by the Principality of Zeon and their fearsome Zakus. An ill-advised attack resulted in the death of the Gundam's planned test pilot, the destruction of all but 3 suitsGANDAMU! , and the chief engineer's son literally Falling into the Cockpit of the Gundam. The defeat of the two once-invincible Zakus signalled that the year-long war for Spacenoid independence was about to enter a new chapter. A chapter written by Amuro Ray, pilot of the Gundam and many more to come.
    • Tasked with a ragtag crew of civilians aboard the mobile suit carrier White Base with transporting the Operation V units to Jaburo, the EFF headquarters in the Amazon, Amuro successfully used his technological know-how and growing pilot skills to destroy all obstacles in their path, including some of Zeon's best aces like Garma Zabi, Ramba RalGANDAMU! , the Black Tri-Stars, M'Quve and tragically, Lalah Sune (see below for details). The Gundam was dubbed the "White Devil" for how easily it dispatched Zeon's mobile suit forces and eventually netted the Earth Federation victory with Amuro becoming the second highest-scoring ace of the One Year War, but at the cost of a peaceful life.
    • Amuro would be treated lavishly by the Federation post-war for helping them, buying a luxurious mansion with his wartime pensions and becoming an instructor at the Cheyenne Base Mobile Suit Academy in Wyoming, North America. However, this was a Gilded Cage; discovery of Amuro's Newtype powers made him a constant object of surveillance by the military who wanted to control him for their own nefarious reasons. The onset of the Gryps War brought on by EFF anti-Zeon force the Titans and some prodding from his old friend Fraw persuaded him to overcome his PTSD and chronic combat fatigue to return to active combat as a pilot for Earth-based resistance group Karaba, piloting the MSK-008 Dijeh. In this position, he mentored Zeta Gundam pilot Kamille Bidan and became his equivalent on Earth while Kamille was fighting against the Titans in space.
    • After the Gryps War, Amuro joined the special operations task force Londo Bell under Bright Noa as commander of the force's mobile suit squads. It was here that he encountered his long-time nemesis Char Aznable for the last time, now a Knight Templar plotting to drop asteroids on Earth to force humanity to move to space and become Newtypes. The RX-93 ν Gundam, a unit which Amuro designed himself narrowly defeated Char's Sazabi and prevented the asteroid base Axis from colliding with Earth, pilots from both sides helping him the whole way. This fight however would prove to be Amuro's last. Pushing his psychic abilities to their limit overloaded the ν Gundam's Psycho-Frame and destroyed Amuro's and Char's bodies, ending their historic rivalry once and for all.
  • Ascended after a psychedelic journey into the very depths of time and space, surveying the endless cycle of war resulting from humanity's mistakes. He almost lost hope from seeing that his efforts to prevent the fall of humanity to violence were for naught, culminating in the ∀ Gundam cleansing nearly all traces of humanity from the Earth. Lalah Sune helped him see that the Gundam multiverse is a cycle of humanity's mistakes that will repeat over and over again, but the legend of the Gundam started by Amuro is proof that humanity isn't powerless to change its fate. Amuro regained new hope for the future, whatever or whenever it was, and it seemed that the universe itself heeded his wish. Amuro's spirit was enveloped by the white light of Eternity itself, transporting him to a near-empty landscape with Lalah gone. Great plains, houses and characters from different universes intermingling signalled to him that a new, clean slate was there for him to build upon. For this was the Pantheon, and a new chapter of his life was about to begin...
  • An introverted person by nature with a single-minded interest in machines. Not someone suited for the military, moreover as the one manning their trump card against the enemy. While Amuro was a capable pilot, inside he was a complete wreck, a teenager with no prior war experience pushed into a position where he got No Sympathy for being unprepared (including one infamous Bright Slap), near zero therapy for his trauma, losing his father to oxygen deprivation and falling down the stairs and the deaths of many people who he came to consider loved ones. This lingering trauma along with poor social skills extends to the many heralds he has, all who support him in various ways:
    • The crew of the White BaseGANDAMU!  has become a second family to him. They largely moved on to civilian lives after the war but continue to assist him in the Pantheon. Fraw Bow (his caretaker and close friend) drops in every so often to make sure he's eating well, her husband Hayato Kobayashi and Ryu Jose serve with him in the GUAG Robot War Division, Kai Shiden is a freelance journalist who digs up dirt on Amuro's possible enemies, and so on. Sayla Mass lives with Amuro in his temple, largely to mediate the tension between him and her brother CharGANDAMU! . It's telling that Amuro trusts her enough to be his second-in-command.
    • His father Tem Ray was the chief engineer for Operation V and designed the Gundam himself. An explosion in the colony during the attack sent him into space where extended oxygen deprivation left him delusional and prone to mood swings. Following rescue, Tem resided in neutral Side 6 (Riah) and after the victory at Solomon, presumably died falling down the stairwell leading to his apartment. His reunion with Amuro and his estranged wife Kamaria was a joyous occasion, and despite being far from reconciling are resolute on making up for time lost from the war with Amuro. Tem is semi-retired to treat his mental issues, but regularly checks in on projects in the GUAG Engineering Division. Don't ever mention the Tem Ray circuit in front of him; he wept in despair upon realizing he made a piece of junk.
    • Karaba operative Beltorchika Irma is another one of Amuro's trusted confidantes, having gotten past their Destructive Romance in Zeta. A fangirl of Amuro yet not altogether stupid, she does counter-intelligence work for the GUAG. A mobile suit team equipped with modified Zeta Gundams rounds out Amuro's heralds, having served with him incognito during the First Neo Zeon War. Red Snake (aka Yurii Ajissah) met Amuro at a funeral when she was just a child, and Gray Wolf (aka Shin Matsunaga, the White Wolf of Solomon) is a liaison between the GUAG Robot War Division and Char's faction of the GUAE Mecha Cohort.
    • He eventually settled on Chirico Cuvie as his high priest, sympathizing with the Supersoldier who was accused of treason for being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and their introvert, shut-in personalities. Amuro appointed Chirico his special attaché to the Division's 2nd Battlegroup, and his eyes and ears on the ground with the rank of 1st Lieutenant.
  • You don't need to be in the GUAG to know that Amuro is a straight badass. Period. His service in the Earth Federation Forces, while largely unnoticed in his own universe, was greatly rewarded in the Pantheon. Amuro has received the EFF Medal of Honor, GUAG Medal of Honor and the GUAG Sacrifice Badge 1st Class, among others. The last award came with a promotion to Lieutenant Commander and most senior mecha pilot in the GUAG Robot War Division, reporting directly to then Rear Admiral Bright Noa. As the division grew in size, so did his rank twice from Lieutenant Commander to Captain. Adding to "White Devil" and the "White Unicorn", Amuro is also nicknamed "The Transcendent" by some pilots due to his post-mortem journey into the depths of time and space that to them, makes him understand the plight of the Gundam multiverse more than anybody, even the strongest Newtypes.
    • Aboard the Ra CailumGANDAMU!  are an assortment of Federation Ace Pilots and Gundam pilots who equal Amuro in skill, since novices would never be able to go along with his demanding plans. First formed after the Ra Cailum was refitted to house more mobile weapons, RWD Squad Alpha engages in high-stakes missions for the GUAG Robot War Division, and are the first responders on scene whenever something particularly bad happens (for membership, see here). His superior, Bright Noa, in spite of a rocky start filled with angst, is one of Amuro's closest friends in the Pantheon, and could pass for a bar buddy if he weren't so straight-laced. He still keeps a framed picture of Amuro in his office.
    • What Amuro lacks in raw psychic power like Kamille and Judau, he makes up for in skill. Made in response to Char's new Nightingale, his Hi-ν Gundam utterly trounces most of the competition. It is visually identical to the official version (sans the violet colours which are back to black and white) but has various tricks from alternate-universe units.
      • The Minovsky particle generator gives the Hi-ν's Variable Phase Shift armor unlimited operating time, rendering it immune to all but the most devastating of physical attacks. The Mirage Colloid Dispersal system allows the Gundam to cloak not only itself but at least two partner units within a 30-35 metre radius for stealth missions, which renders them invisble and intangible to physical attack and radar. This negates the Phase Shift armor however and biological means like telepathy can still detect them.
      • Six Fin Funnels are equipped on the back (ten in the Double Fin Funnel configuration), and have bomber, beam, long-range scout and Minovsky particle dispersal variants. Invisible Fin Funnels reverse-engineered from Aila Jyrkiäinen's Qubeley Papillon are used when in crowded situations.
      • The Psycho-Frame embedded in the Hi-ν Gundam is rumoured to be more powerful than any of its predecessors, including the Strike Freedom's SEED Mode, the Quantum System. Augmented by the Plavsky particle micro-emitters along certain surfaces of the Gundam, it allows for dramatically increased mobility and dexterity, at times even to unnatural levels.
    • Amuro has a distinctive reputation among heroic Gundam pilots, with even Sour Supporters like Mikazuki Augus acknowledging his worth. His closest allies in the Division are Shiro Amada, Kira Yamato and Setsuna F. Seiei, all committed to the ideal of peace despite that being all but impossible. Amuro admits to being a bit envious of Shiro. If he had a chance to fake his death and get out of the war without punishment, he might've taken it.
    • As a high-ranking pilot, Amuro is very chummy with others under his command, and most of them in turn regard him as one of the genre's greatest stalwarts. Had it not been for him, Patlabor, Macross, VOTOMS and many other franchise would not exist today. The other two of the "Mecha Big Three", Kouji Kabuto (Super Robot) and Ryoma Nagare (Combining Mecha) all respect him to the highest degree as brothers-in-arms. Ryoma's more colourful style of combat clashes with Amuro's more subdued, cautious style but the two veterans complement each other perfectly. They don't remember it too vividly, but their time fighting on a post-apocalyptic Earth composed of all mecha universes fused into one was well-spent to make them a dangerous Red Oni, Blue Oni duo.
      • Some Ship Tease is allegedly brewing between him and Misato KatsuragiGANDAMU! , not least of which because their seiyuus voiced Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon respectively. Amuro has taken Shinji under his wing, fearful for the boy's future (his mother, while redeemed is still not in the best of states). When not on duty, he is always game for a visit to WILLE headquarters aboard Misato's flagship, the AAA Wunder.
  • It didn't take long for Char and Amuro to come across each other in the Pantheon... nor did it take long for a big fight to happen. It took a while before Sayla and Nanai managed to prise the two apart. Both Amuro and Char have never gotten over their mutual angst over Lalah until her return to the Pantheon (again, see below). On a good day, they are comparable to Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr in their respect for the other and often form truces for mutual survival. On other days, expect them to be at each other's throats over differing views on humanity's future, neither giving in. Amuro still believes that humanity still has a chance to shape its own destiny without violence while the more cynical Char insists that only through cataclysm and disaster can they be forced to change. Yet they are Not So Different; both had screwed-up family lives, were forced into a life of war and death and losing their loved ones stopped them from settling down permanently. They do not deny the similarities, but insist the way they individually responded to their traumas was the right way. Expect lots of carnage, spectacle and verbal jousting when they encounter each other on the battlefield.
    • It took Amuro a while to get used to the idea of Char Clones, and he was this close to facepalming at the idea of his Archenemy having dozens of expies. Zechs is a neutral who often acts as liaison between Char's faction of the GUAE Mecha Cohort and Amuro's pilots in the GUAG Robot War Division, and both are in agreement over maintaining a blance between martial pacifism and complete pacifism. He is allies with Graham Aker and can relate to his fascination with the idea of the Gundam. Full Frontal evokes some pity for him as a person who had Char's ideals forcibly imprinted onto him. Obviously, Amuro hates Rau Le Creuset the most for his destructive nihilism and views him (as does the rest of the fandom) as a repulsive darker reflection of Char in his Dark Messiah phase. Gilbert Durandal
    • (other evil pilots) As a staunch opposer of war and violence, Amuro is not pleased that there are worse people than Char and Gihren in the Pantheon. Ali al-Saachez, infamous mercenary and pilot for Rau's faction of the GUAE Mecha Cohort reminds Amuro of every sociopathic, sadistic and battle-hungry soldier he's ever met in battle, those who thrive on violence and slaughtering innocents. He would love to see Setsuna and the Meisters put that man in his place. Things got worse when he discovered that the Black Tri-Stars had ascended. Desiring to avenge the death of Lt. Matilda, his team rushed to their target in the House of However, the trio saw him coming and high-tailed it out of there. Amuro's team to meet a smoking pile of rubble and instead coordinated search-and-rescue of deities caught in the crossfire. On their end, the Black Tri-Stars don't fancy having to face a now all-powerful Newtype who managed to best their Jet Stream Attack at the moment until they've honed their skills enough.
    • GUAE members
  • status as Gundam's poster boy, publicity, doesn't mind jokes that come with it but prefers to isolate from fans, doesn't mind interactions and press conferences sometimes though, VA problems He made it this way because he was slapped from a Wangsty wimp into a responsible man by Bright Noa. His line, "Not even my father hit me!" becomes legendary, though not in a way that is complimentary. Amuro doesn't seem to mind and humors himself with that line at times.
  • House of Love interactions, Lalah
Given the premise of the Gundam series, Amuro would also be enemies with the Grand United Alliance of Machines, especially given that, from what I'm looking, Amuro is a believer of the best of humanity and it's potential, a trait which most of the GUAM counter by advocating for the supremacy of machine-kind.
  • (to be elaborated) Believing Humans Are Special, Amuro is venerated by The God-Emperor of Mankind and Sigmar Heldenhammer come to mind and treated in high regard by the Order of Humanity.
"I’m not as impatient as you are (Char), I’m willing to wait for humanity to learn and grow. That’s our purpose, we have to show the world the light in the human heart."


Old Content:

  • As a fellow 'White Devil' (and the originator of the title), Amuro is very close to Nanoha Takamachi and they kinda form a 'secondary duo' (aside of her legendary one with Fate), tales has it that Nanoha deals with small-sized threats, Amuro deals with big-sized ones.
  • Has fought against Optimus Prime in Death Battle. Neither wanted the fight, as they are fellow heroes and peacekeeper, but they agreed to fight to the best of their ability, out of mutual respect. Amuro found himself totally outclassed by Optimus, but still put up a very good fight, despite the fact that he was using his outdated RX-78-2 Gundam, earning praise from the Autobot Leader, despite Amuro's eventual defeat.

  • Routinely makes visits to Willy Wonka when his candy supply runs low. When he heard of Vanellope von Schweetz's ascension, he also tried to get candy from her, but Ralph put a stop to that. He still goes and visits her for tea though.
  • Despite having an elderly, mustachioed butler and being the world's greatest detective, he has never been seen in a room with Batman.
  • Tends to slouch in his chair because it increases his reasoning skills.
  • Sometimes tend to mistake Lan Hikari for Light due to their similar voices. Lan in turn does his very best to behave around L.
  • Has become acquaintanced with the Mangakas Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi (Ashirogi Muto) due to having the same creator, Mashiro looking just like him and Takagi admiring the manga he comes from.
    • Though he does have some conflicted feelings about Takagi in particular, who looks like Light and is a huge Death Note fan to boot. Also, the very fact that his lookalike is best buds with the Light lookalike puts him on edge. But he will admit he isn't similar to Light, personality-wise.
  • Was quite pleased when he found out Near ascended into a companion house, even more so that it was also in the same house be he and Light were in, meaning more eyes to keep track of him. Also helps that Near also was the one who took down Light in the end. Is still confused if he used a Death Note or not to get Teru Mikami down to the warehouse, and has even asked the House of Knowledge's help for figuring it out. No direct answer has popped up yet.
  • Was visited by Rem, for killing him to protect Misa. He responded by admitting that there were no hard feelings felt during the time due to them both being tricked by Light, and has promised to at least stop Misa from spending life in jail or being killed should she be caught. While she appreciates the sentiment, she prefers to have someone else arrest her.

  • You may never see Ai Haibara outside her temple. For months, a shadowy organization has been seeking her death for betraying them and won't stop until they've eliminated her and all who know of their existence. Until that organization has been crushed under the boot of the law, she'll remain in her temple, researching and creating an antidote to the deadly poison she unwittingly created.
  • Shiho Miyano took over her parents' secret project after they died in an accident, receiving education in the United States, serving the Black Organization from the age of thrteen under the codename 'Sherry'. She was marked for elimination after her sister Akemi was murdered by Gin and she boycotted her research in retaliation. Attempting suicide, she swallowed a hidden APTX 4869 pill only for it to shrink her down into a six-year old girl, just like with Shinichi Kudo a while back. In her smaller body, she escaped and fled for Shinichi's house but collapsed outside the residence of his neighbour, Professor Hiroshi Agasa who took her in even after realizing who she was. Now under the name of Ai Haibara and wanting to stay that way, she seeks to pursue the ordinary life her sister managed to have, find a cure for APTX 4869 to return Conan to being Shinichi and eventually take down the Black Organization for good.
    • Haibara's ascension was shrouded in absolute secrecy as she was suspicious that the invitations to the Pantheon were a trap by the Organization. At Conan's insistence (he had been ascended a while back), she wrote back with a tentative 'yes' and the House of Health and Diseases embraced her with open arms. For a long time, she was in a place where she didn't need to look over her shoulder for the possible Organization member aiming a gun at her. Some have jokingly lampshaded that there are far worse things than the Black Organization to fear in the Pantheon, and even more worse ways to go out. She is not amused.
  • It was a while after that Professor Agasa arrived. A gifted scientist and jolly man, his gadgets have been lauded by MI6 and other intelligence agencies in the Pantheon. Despite their actual ages, Haibara acts like a mother to him especially where his diet is concerned. Nevertheless, the Professor is the only person Haibara confides in besides Conan, and he in turn is very protective of her. If Haibara can't attend any sort of meeting with an acquaintance, Agasa will step in. This has piqued Gromit the Dog's interest, since he has to contend with Wallace's cheese obsession to the point of setting booby traps. He can't do much for her current situation, but they share a queer kinship. Wallace comments that if he'd taken a degree in pharmaceuticals, he would be able to give his two cents on a cure for APTX 4869.
  • Conan Edogawa aka Shinichi Kudo is one of the first real friends she has ever had, or even the first person other than her sister that she has any real affection for. After years of being in a sterile research lab where a normal life was nothing but a pipe dream, this is understandable. For all their bickering, Conan and Haibara share a close bond that they can't have with anyone else given that they were both shrunk by APTX 4869 and share the same level of intelligence. Haibara once had a crush on him, but this quickly disappeared when she realized that he had eyes for Ran and only Ran. Since she's moved on, she's rather hostile to any efforts by the fans to ship her and Conan, more so because they clamour for Ran's death.
    • However, they have serious trust issues where the Black Organization is concerned. Whenever Conan stumbles on a case related to the Organization, he almost never shares said information with Haibara. Likewise, Haibara has never been 100% honest with Conan on what she knows. In fact, she's known that the Organization's boss is Renya Karasuma for a long time but has neglected to share that secret. Ultimately, both do this for the sake of each other's safety and discourage the other from acting rashly.
  • If Conan is her best friend, Ran is her honorary Cool Big Sis. Initially cold towards her because she reminds her strongly of her deceased sister Akemi, this has warmed into a fierce desire to protect her. Likewise, when she first ascended, Ran wanted to be with her to ensure her safety at all costs, not wanting to see her get hurt like last time. While appreciative of the gesture, she'd rather not be in her constant company as the nature of her ascension could blow her greatest secret to Ran. Agasa is enough for her to handle.
  • When he heard about her ascension, Conan had hopes that Haibara would use other antidotes in the Pantheon to more swiftly concoct a permanent antidote for APTX 4869, even suggesting experts in the Pantheon that could collaborate with her. She kindly but firmly refused, stating that she prefers to work alone using her own methods, and would do anything to keep Conan of stealing the antidotes and using them irresponsibly. She doesn't want to risk the chances of him worsening the effects every single time he uses one, even if he used it for "important emergencies", causing him to groan in disappointment and give up. There's also the problem of how exotic the variety of drugs, serums, poisons, potions, antidotes are in the Pantheon, and she worries that factoring in ingredients from magical, extradimensional and alchemical sources could completely derail her research.
  • Haibara's terrible treatment by the Organization, especially after her sister's death, has earned her a lot of pity from several deities, and her own fury towards others.
    • She gets along swimmingly with the Baudelaire Orphans since both lost their parents at a young age and are connected to shadowy organizations their parents are members of (with Haibara also being a member). They pity how the Organization's reliance on her caused her to be isolated before she gained her own friends as Haibara. She has similar sentiments towards them, especially pitying them for being chased by Count Olaf in much the same way as she is by the Organization. Out of all the siblings, she is closest to Klaus since both share the same level of intelligence and a well-rounded knowledge of a lot of subjects, not to mention a pessimistic outlook on life as a result of their upbringing. One of her side ventures is e a cure for the Orphans' fast-acting peppermint allergy.
    • As stated above, she is happy being a child and would rather remain a child, since her life since being shrunk is far better than before. Moreover, she views it as a new lease on life for her to rectify her past errors as an Organization member. Even so, she wouldn't cherish Alessi's power to de-age people to toddlers.... or foetuses depending on how long they were affected. It also doesn't help that he is a psychopath who is okay with hitting children, causing her to stay away from him much more.
    • Hearing about what happened to her, Toriel wanted to give her comfort stating that everything is going to be okay. Just like with Ran, Toriel easily reminds her of her dead sister, which unsettled her at first, but eventually caused her to easily warm-up to her and forge a friendship. Likewise, Frisk wants to befriend her, hopes that she'll live a happy life as Haibara, and tries to encourage her to warm-up to others to gain more friends. Haibara is comfortable with her small circle of friends, though she appreciates Frisk's support.
    • Ended up meeting Cream after she and Conan were solving a murder case involving Dr. Eggman. Cream's naivety, curiosity, and kindness easily reminds her of her other best friend, Ayumi Yoshida, which is why she notably warmed up to her quicker than any other Pantheon deity. As to be expected, Cream feels bad for Haibara upon hearing that she is an orphan and has no biological family left, but is relieved to hear that she is happier living her life as a child. Because of the personality resemblance, Haibara allows Cream to call her by her first name, although she wishes that the latter would drop the "Mrs." act whenever they encounter each other.
  • Most of the House of Science value her as an honorary colleague, even some of the evil-aligned ones, considering that she managed to create a drug capable of being a poison and a de-aging serum at the same time. The evil-aligned ones, especially Ryoma Sengoku, a member of SHOCKER and ally of the Organization, lament at how she has wasted her potential by leaving the Organization and halting any chance of perfecting the ideal APTX 4869, more so not wishing to be involved anymore. The House of Science are interested to hear how Haibara developed a drug that could be a lethal poison and also served as a way for people to de-aged. The evil deities there think it's a waste that she doesn't want to be an evil person anymore because hearing of her capabilities, they believe she could achieve more than what she had developed, which Haibara doesn't want to be involved with. The good deities there are glad that she's now in the side of them with some of them lending a helping hand on helping her on developing the permanent antidote and wished that she could work with them in the future for future projects that could be for the greater good, which Haibara refused as she thinks that she works best using her own methods, something that they understood.
  • While Haibara is a big fan of fashion, most of the time, she mostly focuses on accessories. She tends to visit the House of Accessories to see what kind of accessories they have. While Rarity respects this, she wishes that Haibara would focus on other fashion trends, stating that she could be a good model if she does focus on the fashion industry as a whole, which Haibara halted on as she would rather focus on what she wanted.
  • While she doesn't really play soccer, she is a big fan of the sport itself and although she accompanies the Detective Boys of the matches of Tokyo Spirits, she is rather a huge admirer of Big Osaka and obsessed over it's star, Hyusuke Rigo. While they don't mind about it, some of the deities are confused why someone who lives in Tokyo would support an opposing team in Osaka, but of course Haibara never listens and tells them to stop minding her business.
  • Haibara is a huge animal lover and doesn't like it if animals are being hurt. As such, she gets along with Fluttershy and occasionally visits her temple to take care of her animals. She is impressed with her ability to become friends with all living things in general and jokes that she could turn the BO into pacifistic people, even if saying it uneases her. Although she is a little bit put off by her apologetic demeanor, it doesn't strain their relationship.
  • Even though she knows the strategy of not being shocked by electricity thanks to Conan, she still stays away from the Electricity sub-house as she strongly dislikes being shocked. Considering the deities of the Pantheon's capabilities, it's much more reasonable why she stays away from them more often.
  • Has managed to acquire the services of Sento Kiryu/Kamen Rider Build in helping with finding a cure to APTX 4869. Many deities were surprised and interested in seeing how far progress has been going ever since the two teamed up.

Reworking Gods Wave III

    Kaito Kid 
Kaito Kuroba, Divine Practitioner of Impossibly Awesome Magic Tricks (Kaito Kid, Bakaito, Phantom Thief KID 1412, Kid 1412)

KID and Kurobanote 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His hat and monocle
  • Theme Music: You'll see the KID
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, leans into Chaotic Neutral during some morally dubious moments
  • Portfolio: Lovable Rogue, Phantom Thief, Minor Living Alone, Voice Changeling, The Trickster, Alliterative Name
  • Domains: Trickery, Personality, Magic, Performance
  • Herald: Konosuke Jii
  • Allies: Bugs Bunny, Oscar Diggs, Zatanna Zatara, Dorothy Albright
  • Rivals: Carmen Sandiego, Catwoman, Rouge the Bat, Arsene Lupin, The Spy
  • Enemies: corrupt law enforcement, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat.
  • Special Relations: Conan Edogawa
  • Not to be confused with: Kaito Kumon
  • Kaito Kuroba is a normal teenager with a normal life. At least, that was the case until he found out that his deceased father Toichi was a notorious thief known as Kaito Kid. With his father's murderers out to get a mysterious gem that can grant immortality, Kaito Kuroba takes on the identity of Kaito Kid in order to stop the organization from going any further with their goals. Since Kaito is a skilled illusionist, it would only make sense for that to translate into his heists, resulting in some unorthodox, yet impressive trickery. There's other forms of trickery that he does in his heists as well, such as disguising himself as another person (and yes, he can match that person's voice very well).
  • The House of Justice received a notice that the Chaos Emeralds were going to get stolen from the Treasures. There was a bit of surprise that Dr. Eggman wasn't going to be involved with that, but the various police officers and law enforcement decided to station themselves at the Treasures to make it less likely that the items in question get stolen once the potential thief arrives. Unfortunately, the officers found out that the thief already made their way inside and they had to rush to where the emeralds were at. The emeralds weren't present, but the officers could see a white hang-glider in the distance, prompting them to chase the thief. The thief was able to get away, much to the consternation of law enforcement.
    • Following that ordeal, there was a bit of surprise when it was discovered that the emeralds were returned to the Treasures. Eyewitness reports about the heist in question mentioned that an assortment of magic tricks was involved and that someone called Kaito Kid was responsible for all of it, including the "returning the gems" part. Law enforcement has made it a point to catch that Kid whenever he strikes again, mostly due to the notices that he sends out.
  • Of the various officers and detectives that are pursuing him, Kaito finds Inspector Zenigata to be quite amusing. Kaito is often reminded of Ginzo Nakamori, who has always targeted Kaito Kid and failed at it, whenever he's trying to avoid getting arrested by Zenigata and even finds the two to be similar in some aspects, right down to the "good at cases that don't involve their number-one target" bit.
    • While he has a decent number of recurring pursuers, there were some that he took plenty of issue with. Specifically, he has problems with the corrupt law enforcers as he felt that even if he told them his reasons for his thefts or the fact that he returns the items after a heist is over since they aren't what he's looking for in the long run, they wouldn't care about it nor his affable demeanor and just want him arrested or worse.
  • If he isn't going out performing heists as Kaito Kid, then Kuroba is probably hanging out with other magicians such as Oscar Diggs, someone who has used his profession for unconventional purposes. Zatanna Zatara and Dorothy Albright have also used their magic tricks outside of the stage. There is a possibility that there a collaboration between them is in development, though if it does indeed happen, whether or not it will be for a larger purpose remains to be seen.
  • He found a kindred spirit in Bugs Bunny, as they're both tricksters (though Bugs is a bit more selective on who to target) and known to disguise themselves as other people (though Kaito put a lot more effort in that regard compared to the wabbit). Weirdly enough, Kaito discovered that he didn't have much difficulty imitating Bugs' Japanese voice.
  • Kaito isn't fond of traditional guns, so he instead relies on a gun that can fire playing cards. This also makes him a bit more distinct from other thieves; thus if "Kaito Kid" is using an actual gun instead of his playing card gun, then it's not the real Kaito Kid that's making his escape. While some deities that are known to weaponize cards find it amusing to some degree, others feel that it's not a practical weapon to use during heists.
  • For some inexplicable reason, Kaito has a strong fear of fish and has been trying to avoid a lot of marine animals as much as he can, especially if they are threatening such as Bruce the Shark. The fear is bad enough that he winces a bit whenever he's provided seafood and tries not to eat such a food. He gets along well with Tohru because of it (although many gods find it ironic that Tohru, with the body of a sumo wrestler, can't stand fish).
  • Naturally, Kaito has come to learn of a slew of other thieves in the Pantheon. He finds the majority of them to be interesting rivals should he cross paths with them during his heists.
    • He actually heard about Lupin III beforehand, especially since that thief managed to disguise himself as Kaito Kid whilst Kaito Kuroba was watching the antics from the sidelines. Kaito was able to get back at him afterwards by stealing something that Lupin III was after before the latter arrived. The two are engaged in a somewhat friendly competition to see who can pull off more daring capers successfully.
    • The one thief that Kaito has a pronounced dislike towards is Felicia Hardy. While she has been both good and evil at different points in time, her going full-on evil and relying on a criminal organization to handle dirty work for her has gotten him rather unnerved. Even though Kaito can be a bit devious at times, he wouldn't try to put others at significant harm on purpose. While Black Cat doesn't really see Kaito as a threat, he has been keeping an eye on her in case the two were to come in direct conflict with each other.
  • Being skilled with disguises (though that only happens if the need arises), Kaito has gotten into a bit of a rivalry with other deities proficient in that field, which also included a couple of thieves. While The Spy is not a thief, his untrustworthiness is notable enough to a point where Kaito is very suspicious whenever The Spy has any involvment whatsoever during any of Kaito's heists.
  • Even though he wasn't that surprised to hear about Conan Edogawa being in the Pantheon considering that they have crossed paths a number of times in the past, Kaito finds the detective to be a worthy adversary given the skills established by such (and Conan has acknowledged Kaito's own skills). That said, they're pretty amicable towards each other even if they're trying to outwit each other.

  • Annoyed at: Kaito Kid
  • The karate champion as well as the captain of the martial arts club of Teitan High, Ran Mouri is the childhood friend and love interest of Shinichi Kudo. While going on a trip to Tropical Land, Shinichi left her behind stating that he missed something inside the rollercoaster trip. That is until she went to Shinichi's home, thinking he is already home, only that she could never find him and encountered Dr. Agasa and a kid that she didn't recognize. The latter introduced himself as Conan Edogawa, with Ran taking an interest on the kid and wanted him to stay on her home where it is also where her father's detective agency came from. Now, she is helping her father solve crimes and cases whenever they encounter one, unaware that Conan is the one that solve all the cases and that he is Shinichi Kudo.
  • She was chosen to ascend not only because it seems that either she or someone else will remind someone she is a karate captain, whether or not they are in a dangerous situation, but also that she finally responded to Shinichi's love confession by kissing him on the cheek. Upon meeting Conan in the Pantheon, they were both surprised to meet each other, and she didn't expect him to have already ascended before she. Fearing that Ran will find out his identity soon, the Court of Gods set up a mandate to keep Conan's identity as Shinichi a secret from her until she discovers it by herself.
    • Given how…badly he's kept the secret from several others, despite having successfully sabotaged Ran's progress to finding him out several times, a lot thought that this mandate was stupid and that there should be some sort of middle ground as to what she knows of Conan that will stay in the Pantheon and not follow to the mortal realm. However, due to the threat of the Black Organization, and given how many others have already made it to the Pantheon even before ascending if they ever do, this mandate will stay in effect, but can be re-negotiated to Conan at a later date. The Black Organization is now actually here.
  • A former follower of Liam/Angel, he is happy to see the day that one of his followers got to ascend. She is happy to see him and hopes that he will do his best to atone his mistakes. She tries to give him advice when it comes to detective work that she learned from constantly hanging out with Shinichi and her father as he decided to become a detective and hopes he will be a successful one. Liam nonetheless appreciates the advice she gave him as he is far better at fighting demons than solving mysteries.
  • She finally got to meet Shinichi's inspiration, Sherlock Holmes. She's somewhat happy to see that Shinichi isn't in the Pantheon, as while she does hold Holmes huge respect, she doesn't like the idea of hearing Shinichi rambling everything about him. She wanted to thank Holmes for being such an inspiration to Shinichi in his choices and possible career path, and that he became what he is today. During their first meeting, she asked him if he knows where her friend is, which he responded that he will tell her someday.
    • Considering that she is considered the Watson to Shinichi's Holmes, she was visited by John Watson. They do find some Commonality Connection in that they both tend to ask questions to their respective partners when in comes to cases (although Ran started to do this less often, it's still there) and that they can be both protective of them by using their respective combat skills. She also feels bad to see how much he got flanderized by current society, and noted that she hopes he will feel better someday and hopes that his wife, Mary Morstan, will ascend someday, considering that she died before Holmes returned, and hopes that they'll find true happiness along the way.
  • As a karate champion, she wanted to know if there are any people that knows the art. This is when she met Makoto, who practices a style of karate called rindo-kan karate. She is curious to see what are the difference between her style of karate and Makoto's. The two respect and bonded with each other because of this and found that fighting each other is one of the most thrilling experiences that they ever have, with Makoto liking Ran even more for how kind and respectful personality combined with how considerate she is to her loved ones. In Ran's perspective, she thinks that Makoto's too serious and needs to calm down a little.
  • She respects the Investigation Team for being able to solve the murders of Inaba by themselves despite the dangers of doing it, but she connected with Chie the most. They are both martial artists, have fears of the horror genre, with Ran encouraging her decision of becoming a police officer. Her thirst for eating also reminds Ran of Genta at times, and tries her best to teach Chie how to expand her cooking skills along with Yukiko and Rise.
    • Other Persona users she had the privilege of meeting that are tough like her are Akihiko Sanada and Makoto Niijima. She bonded with the former for their protective instincts from the people they love and being stubborn about it and their obliviousness of how the opposite sex attracted them. For the latter, she bonded with her thanks to her friendship with Sae Niijima. She felt bad that losing her father causes her to lose her passion as a police officer, which was eventually revived later on and also what she's been through, such as the rumors that she got as a student council president, being blackmailed, and being called useless to the point that it got her so much desperation to prove her usefulness. She also admires her sense of justice and hopes for the best for her.
  • She isn't happy to see that Kaito Kid is a Pantheon god as he had rendered her unconscious once and disguised as her. He had also tried to kiss her when she thought that he was Shinichi. Kaito Kid didn't think that she would actually ascend, although he is spying on her using his dove whenever Conan asks him what she is doing around her day.
  • Her father is a police officer, and still works closely with his former co-workers despite his irritating attitude and questionable idiocy. As such, she respects the law enforcement, but special mention goes to Lei Wulong and Chun-Li, not just because of their practice of martial arts, but also because they are competent in their job as police officers, which reminds her of cops like Detective Sato. She wanted to thank them that there are officers like them and that they try to make the world a better place.
    • She also respects Renee Montoya from those same reasons (minus the martial arts). When she heard that she got accused of murder, she sympathized with her as her father and her old captain also have gone through the same thing. She was also horrified to see that Renee's parents disowned her for being a lesbian. She's happy to see she got better from those experiences and hopes she will live a better life.
  • Her mother is a professional lawyer and is nicknamed the "Queen of the Courtroom", thus she has huge respect to those that are lawyers with a sense of justice. Hearing about this, she met lawyers like Phoenix Wright, whom she respected because he has a huge sense of justice to the point he would rather have a client who actually committed a crime get a guilty verdict, although she thinks that he should have better deduction skills. She also got to meet Sae Niijima, who is happy to see her change of heart, developing a better sense of justice, and that she was able to reconcile with her sister (incidentally also named Makoto), something that she wished that would happen to her father and mother, who were separated at the time being.
    • That said, she truly hates those a that are corrupted, which is the case with Manfred von Karma. She's disgusted to see that is able to convict innocent people with a guilty verdict, how he horribly educated his own children, and that he killed the father of his adoptive son just to keep a perfect record. She hopes to see the day that he will get karma when the time comes.
  • One of her former teachers was a FBI agent, so she was curious to see if there are any that fit that job description. Meeting Will Graham and Clarice Starling, she is amazed at their empathy of criminals, she ended up pitying them hearing that they had been through against Hannibal Lecter, with Will becoming a literal drunk, and that one of their counterparts ended up running away together with the serial killer.
    • There's also Peter Burke, even if his division is more specialized for white collar crimes, though she was a bit conflicted at first with his partner Neal Caffrey (an ex-criminal) before learning of his backstory and acknowledging that he really wants to make things right.
  • She cares a lot about children and will go to great lengths to protect them. As such, almost all kids love her because of her caring, nurturing attitude, but are simply afraid whenever her instincts kick in, but nonetheless love her and would totally have her as a babysitter. Although she is afraid of kids who don't have the mind of normal ones and creep her out, such as like Eric Cartman and Hansel and Gretel (not the classic pair, though).
  • She fears ghosts, not because they are supernatural themselves, but because they would be invulnerable to her martial arts skills. She thus also fears other monsters, as she feels that they would be invulnerable as well. She tries her best to stay away from them as soon as possible, although her fear of monsters causes her to be an easy advantage by the evil-monstrous deities to be spook easily.
    • Until she was eventually backed into a corner and was forced to attack back. As soon as she realized that certain monsters are just as susceptible to her karate, her fear of them has lessened considerably. But those indeed invulnerable (like ghosts), she's going to run.
  • She is extremely lucky in luck-based games such as poker and mahjong. Even though she hates poker, her luck in it is so good that it seems like she is a professional. A lot of people are disputed by how a girl who hates it is so good at it. When asked if she wanted to participate in an another poker round, she refused, as she prefers to keep a healthy lifestyle.
  • Considering that she waited for Shinichi to permanently return, she is pitied by the entire House of Love, but special mention goes to Princess Cadence and Kyu Sugardust. The former feels bad for the pain that she held inside and hopes that Conan will finally find a way to defeat the Black Organization and reverse the effects on his body, or at least that she would know the truth. For the latter, seeing how made for each other Ran and Shinichi are, not to mention a few glares from Cadence, both are in her whitelist in that neither of them will be involved in her work (especially considering how much of a Dude Magnet Ran is).

  • Odd Friendship with: Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi/Ashirogi Muto.
  • Light Yagami ascended after his death, a false saint stewing in shame over his failure to become god of the new world. And who was the one that engineered his demise? His partner-in-crime Ryuk, a god of death who dropped his extra Death Note into the Human World for shits and giggles. When he wrote his doomed partner's name in his Death Note to save himself the trouble of watching him rot in jail, he thought that was the end of it, as those who die in his universe revert to Mu (nothingness). He found himself gut-punched twice when the Shinigami King (via Armonia Justin Beyondormason) ordered him to the Pantheon. The first one came when he discovered that Light actually ascended as a god after dying. The second one came when the Court of the Gods told him that from now on he would be watching over the former human he was messing with for jollies as his herald effective immediately. The Shinigami's reply was typical Ryuk:
  • Light of course was livid that Ryuk condemned him to die but to be fair, Ryuk did warn him that he would do that if he was caught. For the most part Light shows no antagonism towards Ryuk (he enjoys his new godhood), but did reveal that only being in the Pantheon might protect Ryuk. Ryuk just nodded dismissively knowing that Light would fuck up eventually and would have to rely on him for safety. Until then, he basically lazed around in the Shinigami Realm or scoured the House of Food for apples. The moment he had been waiting for finally arrived when Light made a deal with the Laughing Salesman Moguro Fukuzou. At the end of the whole affair, Light was in prison and his Death Note had been donned into ineffectiveness. As Light begged Ryuk to help him, Ryuk decided to write down that Light would be killed in a prison riot and the many prisoners who pounced on him were not happy to say the least. A revived Light begged Ryuk for a new Death Note, with the Shinigami only giving in after Light brought him a basket full of apples but not before reminding him why he was doing it.
    Ryuk: Light, allow me to make myself perfectly clear this one time. I'm only doing this because seeing how you will either succeed or fail is enjoyable to me. You do not own me. I own you. If I so please, I can rip this notebook out of your hands at any moment to give to someone else. I'm more powerful than you, and I will not hesitate to show why if you try to think otherwise, understand?
    • Ryuk later broke into the Court and demanded a promotion to full godly status, threatening to kill them all if they didn't comply. After finding out that their guards just shoot their bullets right through him, they relented and gave him the position of god of all shinigami. Which is complete codswallop, because Ryuk actually just had a friendly chat with Chief Justice Johnson who had been hit real hard by the whole thing and the above story was a cover-up to scare Light.
    • Suffice to say, Ryuk's dynamic with Light post-ascension is - roughly the same as usual. Partners-in-crime who openly don't actually care for each other's wellbeing but rely on the other to survive[[note]]On Ryuk's end it's because he needs apples and the House of Food has gotten wise to his nightly rampages[[note]]. Ryuk is a Fair Weather Friend at best, being friendly and compliant until Light gets into trouble, in which case it will depend on his mood to see if he'll help out. Light hates this arrangement and is looking to break free all the time but always seems to slink back to Ryuk.
  • He now spends his time mocking Light and going off to drink wine and eat apples with Moguro, thanking him for giving him the chance to be freed from Light's servitude. They talk about topics only they would find amusing and prank calling other deities. He sometimes invites Hades along just to mess with other deities.
    • Rumor has it that he was the one that actually ascended Rem herself in order to help Ryuk get freed of Light's control. He still keeps tabs on her, in case he thinks he could use her help in something.
  • In rare cases of seriousness, Ryuk will explain that the human obsession with afterlives is irrational, and he and his kind are just nature's way of cleaning up psychic residue and leftover lifeforce.
  • Also lends a hand to fledgling Shinigami and Deaths; partially to keep on the higher-ups good side, partially to mind-screw with Ichigo. (Hey, he watched Light in action and learned quite a bit.) He is, however, going to mess with them a bit. Also, if everyone dies, there won't be anyone left to die. Or grow apples.
  • Is currently in a meme war (he's doing it for the lulz) with Ichigo Kurosaki over what being a Shinigami means.
  • The symptoms of his lack of apples are startiiiiiing.
  • Was almost killed by Vegeta after several prank calls Gone Horribly Wrong. He has now switched to prank-calling Shockblast.
  • Was highly amused to find Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi requesting him for an autograph. He's usually signing other people's names, so signing his own was a change he didn't expect.
  • Whenever he's in need of apples badly, he sometimes steals from Maximus's stash, must to his annoyance. He did try to learn about planting his own apple tree after Johnny Appleseed and Applejack heard of Maximus's complaints, but he always walked off to just pick apples from their fields. Needless to say, they really didn't go anywhere. Doesn't help that the soil in Ryuk's temple is ill-fitted from growing grass, let alone trees.
  • Grim was vastly impressed with how Ryuk backstabbed Light, clapping and laughing upon meeting up with him the next time. Ryuk sometimes writes Billy and Mandy in his death note to give Grim some time off, only adding onto how much Grim likes him, enough to confide in him that that may have some feeling for Rem. Despite knowing very well that Shinigami have no reasons to fall in love with humans, let alone more perverted things, Ryuk still decided to help set Grim up on some dates with, if only to see how disastrous they could turn out.
  • Ryuk enjoys watching the antics of Cesare within the Pantheon, even if he is saddened to find out he can't use his death note. He is currently looking around for a new god or goddess to properly give his Death Note too.

  • Respects/Respected by: Bruce Wayne/Batman
  • Near originally had the spot here of being both "Gaining Gadgets Unexpectedly" and being a "Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb". However, recent developments within the house of Mentalism had started a campaign to cut down on deities that hold two titles. Light originally started it with help from Misa and Teru, bringing up the idea of kicking Near off to the Court Of Gods and using Misa and Teru as anonymous sources, claiming that he doesn't even represent his chosen titles that much. However, Batman has been keeping an eye on Light after Near requested his aid in return for his assistance when dealing with some of Arkham's own criminals, and quickly informed Near about what Light was doing, allowing him ample time to prepare a plan.
  • As a proud owner of countless toys and gizmos, those who need gadgets often go to Near for help obtaining them; he gives the seeker a run-down on how hard it is to obtain, how much it costs, where to go for it, and other such details.
  • Once he heard that Mello ascended, Near instantly headed off to the House of Food to meet with Mello, who was getting ready for another verbal fight against Near once he heard of his ascension. He was quickly stunned when Near thanked him for helping him get the final clues for the Kira case, handing him a bar of chocolate as a way of saying "No hard feelings". While Mello still refuses to call him a friend, he is a bit more tolerant of his presence now, even promising to help him should Light try to become Kira again.
    • On a really good day for Mello, he could be seen eating chocolate with Near, if only because he insists that he is just bored and nothing else.
  • No one has ever seen Near walk. He's just sort of... there when you look at him.
  • He also met face to face with L for the first time, and L was rather impressed that Near took down Light in the end. However, he as well as other deities, including the House Of Knowledge, wanted to know if he really did use a Death Note to control Teru Mikami. Near just smirks and refuses to comment, saying it would ruin the fun of the puzzle.
    • Overhearing the last part of how it would ruin the fun of the puzzle, The Riddler got his eyes set on him due to how similar the two think and has even sent him a riddle for him to solve instead of Batman for once to test how intelligent Near really is. To his dismay, Near appeared right in front of him with an active searchlight set on "Bat-Man" at Scrooge McDuck's money vault. While he managed to backtrack and escape Near's sight, Scrooge saw him and beat him down till Batman caught up to The Riddler. He has since considered Near a Worthy Opponent and has sent him riddles on occasion should he feel bored by Batman.
      • Batman grew to respect Near because of this, even if his way of getting information is questionable at best. In return, Near respects Batman for choosing his own morals like he did, and the two of them even help each other out on crime cases periodically.
      • For those curious about what the Riddler's riddle was, it was actually a 200 piece pure white puzzle, which when exposed to an LED light, has the phrase "Life is like a hurricane, no?" on it. Near deduced quickly that the number of pieces, 200, was military time for 2:00 AM, and a quick google search about the phrase led to the Ducktales theme song. It wasn't long till Near pieced it together.
  • Unsurprisingly, gets along swimmingly with the Toys of Toy Story, even playing with them on a regular basis. However, his own toys seemed to start moving on their own once Near met them. Not that he minds it, as he enjoys playing with them, and even setting up plans with them; it's just that the rest of the SPK feels awkward around them and are still adapting to it.
    • Buzz even offered to assist Near in his detective work, serving as a scout of sorts for crime that Near suspects is happening. Very few people in Japan would believe that a Buzz Lightyear toy would have a hidden camera installed on him.
  • Despite spending a great deal of time in his own temple left to his own devices, he got out a lot frequently once he heard that people like Primus and Emmet were gods here. He spent a great deal watching Primus in awe and crafting with Legos alongside Emmet.
  • Was quite shocked at Spike when he heard his voice, as it sounded familiar. Despite this, even if Spike is a bit unnerved at Near's cold personality, he does respect him for being a dedicated planner.
  • Upon hearing how Near entered the Avatar State, Aang went over to see if there could be another avatar. A little while after he entered, he stepped out dazed and dizzy. Despite this, he does visit Near's temple a couple times to help Near go out and make friends. While Near does appreciate the sentiment, he does find Aang to be a bit annoying at times. Regardless, he still goes out with him when asked.
  • Does his best to avoid Light Yagami whenever possible, as he knows he can't beat him by himself. Should he figure out that Light figured out that he ascended and is planning on writing down Near's name, he has arranged a uber-heart transfer with The Medic to help combat Light's Notebook.
    • Such a day eventually came around when Near was caught underneath some wonky lights that needed to be replaced. As he was walking by a black spot underneath the lightbulb, it turned on for long enough for Light to realize that it was Near. When it went off and on again, Near was gone. After a short chase around the house, Light managed to corner Near and peaked Ryuk's interest to go and see how this encounter turned out. He pulled out his Death Note, ready to write him off (literally). Just before he finished writing his name, Light ended up getting a heart attack somehow. When he accused Near and Ryuk of doing this, Near denied having any role in this and Ryuk expressed surprise and confusion before laughing as he saw Light expire as another figure went up behind him, who turned out to be Rem. While Ryuk gave a hearty chuckle and welcomed Rem back, Near just gazed at her in confusion.
      • Ryuk filled Near in on Rem before she told her side of the story. While shocked to hear what Light did in detail, he explained how he went up against Kira and won thanks to Mello. While Rem was unnerved at some of the same traits he shared with L, she still prefers him to Light and is willing to aide him should Misa not lead to her getting imprisoned or executed. He has agreed to let Soichiro Yagami handle her at least while he focuses on Light and Teru, and considering Soichiro is willing to help Misa out to improve her mind instead of just arresting or killing her, Rem is satisfied with this arrangement.
      • As for his plan with getting a new heart transplant courtesy of Medic, he requested to test it out first with him healing the Heavy Weapons Guy. As a man of science and a Mad Doctor, he approved of this request. Tests are still going underway.
  • The day James Bond decided to challenge Near to a game of chess in the House of Love was... interesting, to say the least, for all the wrong reasons.
    • Before that day, other gods had decided to challenge Near to any intellectual activity with very few accounts of them succeeding; he had only been beaten by L and Mello beforehand, and even then he had accounts of managing to beat the both of them. After completing the game and winning, much to James' shock, he was going to head out, only to be stopped by Panty, who, seeing how Near was on her To-Do List, took notice and complimented Near in how cute and adorable he was, mentioning how it is a shame his V card is still with him. Of course, Near being a Defective Detective, he had zero idea what to do and was left stuttering and flustered as Panty picked him up and took him to her room, resulting in one of the only times in Pantheon history that other deities witnessed Near's legs moving frantically. The result of that was conflicting to Near to say the least. On one hand, what she did to him at first was something that he didn't seem fond of, despite Frollo seeming downright envious of him, but on the other hand, cuddling with Panty was actually rather enjoyable. He settled to being Just Friends with her, allowing her to cuddle him and nothing else.
  • Has been recruited by Killua Zoldyck to help keep dangerous members of the Pantheon in line. Surprisingly, they have a decent alliance, as for all of Near's faults, his resources and personality actually makes him very effective. He is also curious to see if Killua is willing to teach him how to use a Killer Yo-Yo like he can.
  • Is well aware that there is an actual N here relating to Pokemon.
