    Nicholas Saint North 
Nicholas Saint North, the Badass Santa (Santa Claus, Guardian of Wonder)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/north.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Naughty and Nice tattoos on his arms
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Twin sabers, feelings in his belly, Russian heritage, long beard, Santa Claus, leading the Guardians, magical technology, being a former criminal
  • Domains: Christmas, Childhood, Wonder
  • Followers: The Yetis, the Elves, nice children of the world, his fellow Guardians (E. Aster Bunnymund, Toothiana).
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • His temple in the Pantheon contains a snow globe on a pedestal. This snow globe opens a portal to his workshop, where he is most of the time.
  • Is a very popular god in the House of Weapons, the House of Technology and the House of Commerce.
  • When he has off time, and isn't sampling cookies from the House of Food, he can often be found with the Heavy discussing literature and music.
  • Things to know about North; He is very intimidating, downright jolly, mysterious, fearless, caring, and most important of all, full of wonder.
  • Is willing to let others ride with him on the sleigh, but if he says buckle up, know that it's just an expression.
  • He no longer lets pantheon members sit on his knee, since he has to be mobile to oversee the workshop.
  • NEVER harm a child in his presence. Ever.
  • For those that wish to truly become a follower, he will demand to know their center. And if they've yet to find it, will make sure to help them to do so.
  • When he heard of Jack Skellington's ascension (and what happened the last time Jack tried to be "Sandy Claws"), he was quite weary when Jack burst into his temple. Instead of asking whether or not he could perform North's duties, Jack instead asked for help regarding some plans for his Halloween performance and looked in absolute awe at all of the toys he was making. North took this in good humor and has helped Skellington out in this regard. It also helps that they both despise the same person: Pitch.
  • Sora once asked if he was on the Nice list, but found out in dismay that he wasn't due to him stating that he didn't believe in Santa Claus a few years back (although it turned out that he was tricked by his good friend Riku).
  • He's never asking Goldberg to deliver presents for him again, not after what happened last time.
  • Has it out for Alucard for killing one of his earthly avatars.
  • Many a god marvel at North for his skill and audacity because every year, without fail or injury, he personally delivers a lump of coal to every villainous god in the Pantheon on Christmas. This, of course, has earned him the ire of many evil deities, especially Morgoth. He wants that damn BB gun.

    Robot Santa Claus 
Robot Santa Claus, The Monster Santa of X-Mas
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/robotsanta_7248.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A bloody and sharpened Candy Cane
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Brutalizes Anyone He Thinks Is Naughty (Which Is Almost Everyone), The Sociopath, Felony Misdemeanor, Powerful Yet Evil Santas, Ax-Crazy Robotic Psychopath, Extremely High Moral Standards, Making Xmas Miserable For 200 Years, Seeing Zoidberg As Nice, Would Hurt a Child, Jerkass
  • Domains: Festivity, Morality, Judgment
  • Allies: Merged Zamasu, formerly Teru Mikami
  • Those on his nice list: John Zoidberg, Fred Rogers, Son Goku (the feeling isn't mutual)
  • Those on his very naughty list: Bender and his friends, scammers, Ebenezer Scrooger, the Grinch, Eric Cartman, Alucard, Steve Smith and his family, Princess Morbucks, the House of Crime, Vegeta
  • Those on his naughty list: Just about anyone not mentioned
  • Direct enemies: Nicholas St North, Jack Skellington, Eliphas, GLaDOS, Light Yagami
  • Robot Santa Claus was developed by the Friendly Robot Company in 2801, meant to give gifts to the good people on Earth. Unfortunately a glitch set his standards impossibly high. With very few exception he judges everybody as naughty. And those he sees as naughty deserve more than just coal in their stocking, but murder and mayhem. It is because of him that X-mas has become a day of terror instead of togetherness.
  • He treats every crime whether it be well-intentioned, unknown, or from the fallen and Moral Event Horizons equally. Almost everyone except Zoidberg is on his naughty list, and when X-mas rolls around he tries to hunt them down and kill them.
  • Lives on Neptune, which for some reason isn't a gas giant in the Futurama universe. He's not the only holiday icon in the 31st century-there's a far less homicidal Kwanzaa Bot and the Hanukkah Zombie, and the three seem to be on good terms. When Nudar and his scammers scammed him out of his list, he teamed up with Earth to stop them.
  • It's extraordinarily rare for him to leave his shrine until X-Mas, giving the rest of the pantheon time to prepare. An attempt to destroy him has granted him the attention of GLaDOS, wishing to learn of his paradox-absorbing crumple zones. He seems concerned about this because he doesn't want his paradox-absorbing crumple zones to be reverse-engineered and a counter made for them.
  • Nicholas St North considers him just as bad as Pitch, if not even worse. To him, he is a perversion of everything the job of Santa stands for and has to be eliminated for good to save Christmas. Every December 23, the two fight each other for who will deliver presents and/or pain. Every October 31 Robot Santa Claus goes after Jack Skellington for the time he tried to usurp Christmas. He and Nicholas St North may be enemies, but he recognizes him as a proper Santa. In his eyes Jack Skellington dared step into territory where he didn't belong.
  • Though opposed by almost every Santa due to his Black and White Insanity, he still hates it if they are severely injured or harmed. Steve Smith and his family have been fighting off Santa for years due to accidentally shooting him, and that Santa proved to be evil as well. Alucard's killing of Santa was so bad that he eschewed the naughty and very naughty list for the "absolute, super-irredeemably naughty plaque", having a Fate Worse than Death in store for the No-Life King. Vegeta is also high-up on his naughty list, not just for his numerous crimes, but or shooting down Santa's sleigh. Amusingly, he considers Son Goku nice as he is the champion of Christmas and being pure enough to ride the Nimbus Cloud. Goku rightfully considers him an enemy of Christmas, though anyone else on his nice list does as well.
    • However, more recent events have caused Robot Santa to question Goku's pureness, as he stopped his universe's Santa's plans to eradicate naughtiness (ignoring that it would've meant the destruction of Earth).
  • Proves to be such a Knight Templar that even other knight templars think he's insane. Because of his extremely high stands, he considers them naughty as well. However there is at least one that matches his extremism and homicidal nature-Merged Zamasu. Like him Zamasu believes all mortals are naughty, and while there are some mortals that are nice they can be counted with his fingers. So long as they don't reproduce and serve as the Last of Their Kind, Zamasu will let them be so long as he gets the Bad Santa to expand beyond the Earth and Neptune.
  • Teru Mikami used to be another ally of his due to being even more judgmental than his master Light Yagami, and even more insane. To everyone's horror he gave Robot Santa knowledge of the Death Note. You can imagine how horrifying that is. Kira was utterly mortified by this, and immediately chewed out him for doing something so stupid. Robot Santa and Teru's alliance ended then and there, and they are trying to get the Death Note back.
  • He can be kind to a very, very few of the gods. At least one incident of a god not sharing the gift he gave them with the poor, sending the god back onto the naughty list has been reported however. One of those exceptions is Fred Rodgers, to everyone's surprise.
  • It's been discovered without his naughty list, he's left unsure who to kill. A grand heist to raid his Death Fortress on Neptune and sell the list to the house of Justice so that it may then be safely placed in the treasures is in the works.
  • One X-Mas the pantheon managed to slow him down until the final hour of the day. He made a polite offer to his one-time replacement Bender to help make up for time lost. Bender promptly cheesed it.

Lesser Gods

    Ryuujou 
Ryuujou, Goddess of Christmas Dresses (Prancing Dragon, Asashio-class Aviation Destroyer, The Flattop)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryuujou_kai_cg.png
Ryuujou Kai Ni 
Christmas Attire 
  • Lesser Goddess, dangerously close to Intermediate Goddess as Ryuujou Kai Ni
  • Symbol A model or a large scroll of the Japanese Aircraft Carrier Ryuujou
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Happy Holidays Dress (twice over!), Kansai Regional Accent, Onmyōdō, Petite Pride (What Turned To A-Cup Angst), Token Mini-Moe, Girlish Pigtails, Seeks for Attention For Whatever Reason, Moe Anthropomorphism
  • Domains: Costumes, Magic, Light Aircraft Carriers
  • Allies: Admiral, her fellow Fleet Girls (Naka, Yamato, Musashi, Fubuki, Akatsuki, Kisaragi, Ikazuchi and Inazuma, Bismarck, Akagi, Shimakaze, Tenryuu, Tatsuka, Ushio, I-19, Ooi, Kitakami, Sendai, Hibiki, Yuudachi), Mirai, Konata Izumi, Silica, Nicholas Saint North, Mamizou Futatsuiwa
  • Enemies: The Abyssal Fleet (Wo-Class, Re-Class, Seaport Princess, Northern Ocean Princess), Yasunori Kato
  • Opposes: The League of Flat Chests(!)
  • Ryuujou was actually rather surprised by this ascension. When she asked why, the judged said that it is rare for someone to have two different costumes for one seasonal cerebration to different stages. She was still bit confused, but she rolled with it.
    • Due to this, whenever the holidays season is rolling along, she acts as a honourably Santa for the time being, taking a break from her usual duties.
    • Also because of this, she is almost always in her Kai form instead of her normal form, with her being able to upgrade herself to Kai Ni.
  • Some gods wonder what is up with the cat girl motif what she has in her second Christmas outfit. Some think it might have to do with her Kai Ni having some sort of cable sticking from her outfit.
  • Ryuujou has it little bit rough. Even though she seems to pride herself of her distinctive silhouette, everyone seems to think she is jealous of everyone with large breasts, and endlessly mock her for it. It has gotten to her nerves plenty of times.
    Ryuujou: Listen, it is not good to mock someone due to their breast size! And no matter how you slice it, I am a proper Aircraft Carrier, even if I might not look like the others! Got that?
    • However, looking at the way she talks and behaves might indicate that she has some problems, but not related to her breast size. Instead, her prideful stand and her seeking for any sort of attention makes it look like she fears that people find her being Just a Kid, and seeks to be seen as an equal to other Aircraft Carriers. Mirai immediately took notice of it and ensured that she knows what it must feel like, something what Ryuujou is really grateful of.
  • She seems to have a slight beef with the League of Flat Chests, mainly due the fact that she doesn't want to be reminded of all the times she is mocked due to her appearance.
  • Ryuujou gets along well with Silica due to sharing certain qualities.
  • She dislikes Yasunori due the fact that she uses paper shikigami to create or simulate warplanes. She seems to have some interest in Mamizou due to this trait, though.
  • Some gods are confused by the fact that she has a Kansai Regional Accent, even though Ryuujou was not built in Kansai area. Some think that the reason for the accent is that some of her captains were from those areas. Catherine seems to understand her, as she got her accent from her grandmother even if she herself wasn't born in Osaka.
  • She is not a fast-food attendant. Or a Destroyer, even if her costume resembles that of Asashio-class Fleet Girls.
  • Also resides in Clothing Theme.

    SCP- 4666 
SCP-4666, God of Lovecraftian Christmas Figures (The Yule Man)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuleman_photo_final.jpg
Possible photograph of SCP-4666, recovered from a cell phone at the location of Weissnacht Event #057130.
  • Lesser God, Keter by SCP standards
  • Symbol: His unique fingerprint, or horrific presents
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Extraordinarily Malevolent Santabomination With The Worst Parts Of Krampus, Cold-Blooded Torture and Cruel and Unusual Death, Eats Kids And Turns Human Parts Into Presents, Nightmarish Factory, Serial Killer, Monsters Literal, And Figurative
  • Domains: Christmas, Abduction, Torture, Rituals, "Gifts", Subverting Innocence
  • Followers: Joulupukki, Hogfather, Mr Sacks, Zim's Santa Suit
  • Banned from: The Houses of Craft and Commerce
  • Interested in: The House of Torture & Mutilation
  • Allies: SCP-106, Freddy Krueger, Melkor, Pennywise the Clown, Eddie Low, Jack the Ripper, Ramsay Bolton, Oogie Boogie
  • Headbutting Villains with: Winterbolt, Pitch Black
  • Enemies: The SCP Foundation, every single Santa (even Robot Santa Claus), literally every Christmas deity and everyone related to it, Jack Skellington, the entire House of Family, Son Goku, Zim, Dib Membrane, Xerneas, Jack Frost(both of them), Queen Elsa, Tony Tony Chopper
  • SCP-4666. Object Class: Keter. A entity that shows up from the night of December 21-22 to January 1-2 north of 40 degrees latitude, "the Yule Man" acts like a twisted parody of Santa and the Krampus. During a Weissnacht Event he ritualistically tortures and kills families in creatively brutal ways, and kidnaps kids to work in his factory. They work in hellish conditions to make presents out of human body parts, as a macabre take on the holidays. He is equal parts Serial Killer and Humanoid Abomination.
  • Upon his ascension, SCP-4666 soon found himself despised by every single Santa in the pantheon, and every being related to Christmas. And we do mean every, as Robot Santa Claus was repulsed by him. When the Yule Man questioned where he gets to have the moral high ground, he replied that he only acts brutal to the naughty kids, it's just that 99.999% of them are naughty in his eyes. Even then, he wouldn't subject them or his elves to the level of torture the Yule Man is guilty of.
  • Jack Skellington has been spending much of the winter holidays trying to take out SCP-4666, as he does not treat the torture and death of children lying down, nor the perversion of holidays. 4666 pointed out that he messed up Christmas and doesn't have room to talk, though this is only trying to save face as he does not care about how monstrous his take on the holidays is.
  • Has been summarily banned from the House of Craft and Commerce. This is due to his "Weissnacht" gifts for the pantheon involved him crafting stuff from bones, muscles, skin and whatever body parts he can get ahold of, which he was making in Craft and tried to sell in Commerce. The House of Family will shoot him on site for obvious reasons. SCP-4666 has instead produced "gifts" in the House of Torture and Mutilation, along with improving his "craft".
  • Wanted to make a flying reindeer of his own. After mutilating animals and stitching wings didn't work, SCP-4666 decided to go after Xerneas (a fairy deer was "close enough"), and the actual reindeer Tony Tony Chopper. It's better off not knowing what he planned to do with them, though it likely involves using their immortality and healing capabilities to keep his child slaves live longer to work harder. Son Goku proceeded to Instant Transmission and beat the living daylights out of the Yule Man due to his position as champion of Christmas.
  • Zim and Dib recognized SCP-4666 as similar to the rogue Santa Suit of their universe, a Christmas monstrosity. Worrying that it had somehow returned in a new form, they teamed up to stop 4666. Both Jack Frosts and Queen Elsa loathe the Yule Man, who can be seen stalking the House of Ice and Cold.
  • Has attracted the attention of other twisted holiday figures and enemies of said holidays. Oogie Boogie likes the cut of his jib, and how he could help restore Bug Day. Winterbolt and Pitch Black saw a lot of potential, but they are less happy to work with SCP-4666. Winterbolt worries he might get in the way of his rule of the North Pole and the holiday seasons as a fellow Christmas figure, while Pitch Black thinks he's a bit too intense for a full partnership.
  • Melkor seems fond of SCP-4666, since the entity perverts everything about Santa, The Krampus and Christmas to a truly wicked and nightmarish level. Freddy Krueger appreciates 4666's twisted sense of style and how he brings fear and pain to so many people. And SCP-106, having already done horrible things in a macabre Halloween, wants to have fun spreading suffering with a fellow SCP. Pennywise was most amused by how he perverts something innocent much like himself, and how they like eating kids.
  • Unfortunately, SCP-4666 has been seen giving out his grotesque gifts to various, truly malevolent deities in the House of Crime. Eddie Low loved the present of a mutilated, stitched corpse that was meant to be a life-sized doll. It seems to like how Jack the Ripper systematically tears apart his victims, and Ramsay Bolton has gotten some terrible ideas on how to celebrate Christmas from the Yule Man.

Demigods

    Ebenezer Scrooge 
Ebenezer Scrooge, The God Who Found the True Meaning of Christmas
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ebenezer_scrooge_muppet_christmas_carol.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His top hat
  • Theme Song: Scrooge
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, formerly Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Being a Jerkass But Turning Kind Later, Losing His Love By Greed, Benevolent Boss, Good Feels Good,
  • Domain: Christmas, Commerce, Faith
  • Allies: Jacob Marley, The Ghosts of Christmas, Tiny Tim, Scrooge McDuck, Jerrica Benton, Perrine H. Clostermann, Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, Fred Flintstone, Kermit the Frog, Statler and Waldorf(?), Jean Luc Picard, Charles Xavier, Daffy Duck, Rarity, Mario, Sara Crewe, The Professor, Wally
  • Odd Friendship: Grouchy Smurf, Wario
  • Enemies: Mr. Burns, Princess Morbucks, Reagan Twins, Lex Luthor
  • Ebenezer Scrooge was a man consumed by greed and thought poorly of his fellow men. This is especially true during Christmas in which men were generous to others. That changed when he was visited by his dead partner, Jacob Marley, who warned him that if he didn't change, he'd be doomed to suffer in the afterlife. And after being visited by Ghosts of Christmas of Past, Present and Yet To Come, Scrooge did change and became kinder to his fellow men.
  • Scrooge was overjoyed when he found young Tiny Tim was also in the pantheon. As anyone who has ever read or watch a Christmas Carol, Scrooge acted like a second father to the lad. He also became friends with Wally, who shared a similar outlook as Tim.
  • As there been so many adaptations of Scrooge, his appearance can differ. Sometimes, he may look like Alfred Pennyworth or even Jean Luc Picard/Charles Xavier. There was even a time he sounded like Henry Truman. He actually became acquainted with some of these men.
  • Found out that his experience in being a better person has been used by others, sometimes when it isn't even Christmas. These people include Fred Flintstone, who played him in a play and was acting selfishly, Grouchy Smurf, Mario, and Wario. Even Batman lost faith in humanity, which was Scrooge's real problem and not just hating Christmas, and had to be saved by Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas that were represented by people close to him.
  • It's currently unknown on whether or not Scrooge actually met those three spirits. Of course, he doesn't care either way as he is happy with who he is now.
  • Once had an rap battle with Donald Trump. Except it was actually his dead business partner, Jacob Marley. It got weird after that.
  • Was surprise there was another Scrooge in the pantheon, Mr. McDuck. Just like him, he started out as an okay person seeking riches before being consumed by greed. Luckily, he was able to turn over a new leaf. The two can often be seen hanging out, discussing business.
    • Speaking of Scrooges, he really doesn't like that his name has been associated with greed and grumpiness of the holidays.
  • Looks down on most of the evil rich deities in the Pantheon. He thinks they are either too greedy or snobbish with their riches. This is especially true with Lex Luthor, who not only had the money, but also the smarts to make the world better, except he chose to waste it for villainy.
  • As a man who decided to use his wealth to help others, Scrooge has made allies with like-minded individuals. They include Jerrica Benton, who used the money she earns to help her orphans, Perrine Clostermann, who gave up her entire fortune to help war orphans. Even Sara Crewe once helped out a starving beggar girl by giving her five of the six buns she bought. Said beggar eventually became an apprentice at a bakery. He also became friends with Bruce Wayne, who tries to use his wealth to help Gotham where his "nightly job" can't do the work. There's been word of them, along with Scrooge McDuck, to build a foundation for the Pantheon.
  • Despite what others might think, Scrooge doesn't have that much of a connection for the Ghost deities around here.
  • Hangs out a couple of time with Kermit the Frog and even Statler and Waldorf. For some strange reason, he is reminded of his partners of Bob Cratchit and Jacob Marley.
  • When he discovered that Jacob Marley himself was in the Pantheon, Scrooge went over to thank him for changing his life for the better. Scrooge is also in contact with the three ghosts who changed his life, and frequently celebrates with them when the holidays roll around.
  • He heard of another Expy of his named Snowfall Frost, who, while a bit nicer than he was prior to his reformation, took her hate for Hearth's Warming to another level; while he settled for leaving himself out of the Christmas celebrations, she decided to remove the holiday altogether from everyone's memory. Problem is, to do that would've doomed Equestria into Endless Winter by way of Windigos. Thankfully, just like Scrooge, she saw the error of her ways.
  • Also resides in Specialized Narratives.

Quasideities

    Eve Santaclaus 
Eve Santaclaus, The Goddess of Christmas Events
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_433.jpg
Left to right: Blitzen and Eve
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A Gingerbread Cookie of Blitzen
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Maybe Santa, Maybe Not, Mentioning Its Christmas, Saving Christmas by Being a Idol, Because You Were Nice to Me, Christmas in Japan, The Ingenue, Sexy Santa Dress
  • Domain: Music, Idoldom, Gifts
  • Herald: Blitzen
  • Allies: Koume Shirasaka, Ranko Kanzaki, Nicholas Saint North, Rudolph, Son Goku, Yomi, Jack Skellington, The Villager, Ryuujou, Braum, Mei-Ling Zhou, Torbjorn Lindholm, Ebenezer Scrooge, Alex (Street Fighter), Elena
  • Enemies: Robot Santa Claus, Bowser, Mr. Burns
  • Halloween Counterpart: Mad King Thorn
  • Supported by: Ken Masters, Crimson Viper, Rashid, Ryu, Guile
  • Opposed by: Abigail
  • While Eve Santaclaus doesn't have that much to do during the off seasons, that all changes once Christmas comes around. It's during that special time of the year that she works extra hard to spread Christmas joy. And that is made easier with both her Producer and her reindeer, Blitzen.
  • Eve actually claims to be the actual Saint Nicholas, or one of them anyway. Though, she was found on the street by Mr. Producer, naked. So there are some who believe she's just a crazy homeless girl who thinks she's Santa. Regardless, all would agree that her wanting to buy gifts for everybody after becoming a successful idol is genuine.
  • Very much enjoys the Japanese kotatsu because of its comfortable warmth. She loves it so much she thought of replacing both her sleigh and Blitzen with a flying kotatsu. But she changed her mind after seeing how hurt Blitzen was of the idea.
  • Eve is consider the Christmas counterpart to Mad King Thorn's Halloween. Because of this, there's been talks about creating a Darker and Edgier movie based on Jack Skellington's own misadventure of replacing Santa Claus. But instead of a well meaning but disastrous attempt of delivering presents, Thorn would play the villainous King of Halloween who wants to take over Christmas Town and turn it into a Wonder Deathland and Eve would play the magical Santa whose job is to stop him. So far, the deal hasn't gone through. But they're still trying to make it happen.
  • Eve was very suspicious of the Grinch when she heard about the time he once tried to steal Christmas from the Whos. She actually thought he might have stolen her gifts and clothes back home. But she dropped her suspicions of him after hearing how he gave those gifts back after finding the true meaning of Christmas. She was advised, however, not to get too close to him during non-Christmas days since he will act like his former grouchy self.
  • Was actually invited by the former Roman Emperor Nero Claudius to participate in a Christmas Charity hosted at her personal theater, Domus Aurea. While Eve was more than excited to do it, the event was a disaster. Might have to do with the misconception of a "singing Santa" being Nero himself .
  • Heard about Jack Skellington's exploits at replacing Santa and delivering presents himself. While Eve could understand the enthusiasm of falling in love with Christmas, she wishes he did it without causing so much havoc. Regardless, the two did strike up a nice friendship over their love of the holiday.
  • At first, Nicholas Saint North didn't know what to think of the young idol who claims to be Santa Claus. But while getting to know the girl, he found out her love for Christmas was genuine. For that, he brought her in his workshop to help out. He even offered her a sleigh ride to deliver the presents which Eve accepted without hesitation.
  • Like any Santa Claus, Eve opposes the brutality of Robot Santa Claus and putting everybody on the naughty list regardless if they were bad or goodnote . She also run afoul with both Mr. Burns and Bowser since those two stole or at least attempted to steal Christmas.
  • Mistook Braum, Mei, Ryuujou and Torbjorn as fellow Santas when she saw them in their Christmas attires. Even when she found out it wasn't true, she still became good friends with them. Because of the mistake, she been thinking of maybe making a Santa group to help deliver toys.
  • Blitzen gets a bit jealous whenever Eve interacts with Rudolph, fearing he would be replaced by the famous red nosed reindeer. Whenever his jealousy rears up, Eve makes sure he is her number one reindeer.
  • Has been asked by the House of Food to help sell any leftover cakes before Christmas. Seems like her positivity is very effective as they do sell out.
  • Is pretty much grateful for the many deities here who have saved Christmas in the past. And there are a lot of those deities in here.
  • Eve became good friends with Yomi when the latter learned she was homeless. And they became very good friends when Eve found Yomi's bean sprout very delicious. Eve also decided to help Yomi realize that there is good in anybody, regardless if they are rich or poor.
  • Has a habit of decorating many of the Houses in the Pantheon. So it can be a bit of a dissonance when the House of Slaughter has green and red tinsel hanging around with a plastic Frosty the Snowman on the front door.
    • Some of her decorations have even made it into the public eye, such as the "Frosty Boulevard" makeover of New York City. A few of the Street Fighter deities, many of them being American, have expressed appreciation for this. She's even befriended Alex and Elena at one of those celebrations.
    • Abigail, on the other hand, doesn't like this very much. All that snow and decor gets in the way of him riding his car through the city.

    Gin, Hana, and Miyuki 
Gin, Hana, and Miyuki, Holy Trio of Christmas Miracles
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tokyo_godfathers.png
From left to right: Hana, Miyuki (holding Baby Kiyoko), and Gin
  • Quasideities
  • Symbol: A snow-covered Tokyo Tower.
  • Theme Music: Tokyo Godfathers
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (all three)
  • Portfolio: Homeless heroes, Dysfunctional Family, Cannot Go Home Again
  • Domains: Poverty, Celebration, Luck, Family
  • Herald: Kiyoko (the baby), Other Kiyoko (Gin's daughter), Hana's "Mother", and Angel (Miyuki's cat)
  • Allies: Santa Claus, Nicholas Saint North, Mima Kirigoe, Chester A. Bum, the Heroic Protectors of Family, Sei and Stella
  • Enemies: The Child Abuse Supporters, Shou Tucker, those who abuse the homeless, child kidnappers
  • On friendly terms: Most Yakuza deities
  • Disliked by: Most father deities (Gin)
  • A middle-aged alcoholic man who's rude yet caring, an older male-to-female transsexual with a love for singing and haikus, and a cat-loving snarky teenage girl. Gin, Hana, and Miyuki were just one of the many homeless of Tokyo doing what they could to keep themselves fed on Christmas Eve night when they came across an abandoned newborn girl while digging through trash. Naming the baby Kiyoko, Gin, Hana, and Miyuki traveled across Tokyo in search of her parents; many antics ensued, but the three bums succeeded in their endeavor to reunite Kiyoko with her parents, with no small amount of help from luck that borders on divine miracles.
  • Ascended to the Pantheon at the behest of Santa Claus, who witnessed Gin, Hana, and Miyuki's incredibly good deed of returning Kiyoko to her parents on the holiest of nights and wanting to reward them in kind. Noting the amazing streaks of good luck the three experienced during the holiday, which not only helped them on their quest but also reunited the three with their estranged families and got them out of poverty with a winning lotto ticket, Saint Nick deemed Gin, Hana, and Miyuki the perfect fit for the Christmas Miracle trope.
    • Gin, Hana, and Miyuki were initially weirded out to be in a separate plane of existence in which many fictional characters were real. But after some adjusting, the three came to enjoy their ascension, especially after learning the reason why, and are forever grateful of Saint Nick for recognizing their heroic act.
  • True to their trope, Gin, Hana, and Miyuki experience all sorts of good luck and miracles come the Christmas season. This effect of theirs evidently doubled with Baby Kiyoko, their shared Herald ( And godchild), in tow. Gin is often tempted to use this Christmas-fueled good luck to play the lottery, but a disciplinary smack from Hana is enough to knock away that temptation, followed by a lecture on not going back to his gambling ways. And indeed, Hana is not one to try to capitalize on the Christmas miraculousness the three are gifted with, not wanting to take advantage of what she deems as God's blessing for their guardianship of Kiyoko for selfish purposes, and keeps the other two from attempting to do so.
    • Doesn't stop a lot of unwelcome company from trying to force themselves into Gin, Hana, and Miyuki's ensemble during Christmas time in an attempt to profit off of their seasonal good fortune. If these intrusive people don't get chased away by Gin, then they're usually dealt with by other deities who respect the Tokyo godfather's boundaries. And if all else fails, the undesired company quickly learn that the trio's good Christmas fortune only applies to them, while outsiders who try to abuse it get the exact opposite luck.
  • Gin, Hana, and Miyuki's temple is that of the cardboard house they lived in, but modified by the cardboard specialists of the Pantheon to be a much roomier and cozier abode.
  • When they first came across Mima Kirigoe by pure chance, the trio felt and odd sense of kinship with the Idol Singer turned actress, which was very much reciprocated by her. Since then, Mima had become an unofficial family member to the Tokyo godfathers.
    • Of the three, Mima relates with Hana the most given that both used to professional singers, even if Hana simply performed in her Mother's Drag Queen Bar compared to Mima's former status as an Idol Singer. The two are often seen performing duets with each other.
    • On learning of the traumatic event in Mima's life that is the reason for her ascension and assigned trope, Gin, Hana, and Miyuki's protective instincts which they last felt when chasing after Sachiko went into overdrive and the three pledged to protect her from any pervs and stalkers.
  • The three are revered in the House of Family for their efforts in reuniting Kiyoko with her parents, as well as reuniting with their own estranged family, and being an example of a good family, if slightly dysfunctional. Hana in particular is considered an unofficial member of the House of Mothers.
    • Although, plenty of deities criticized Hana for her decision to try and raise Kiyoko on her own, despite being homeless, and then personally track down the baby's parents instead of immediately taking the abandoned newborn to the police, something Gin and Miyuki repeatedly urged to do when they first came across Kiyoko. Hana is quick to admit the irresponsibility of those actions, especially the former. And while she won't defend the latter decision, Hana explains that she seriously felt it better to find Kiyoko's parents and confront them about the abandonment of their offspring rather than risk putting Kiyoko through foster care as she had, Hana being an abandoned child herself. Hana also makes clear that, had she known that Kiyoko was stolen from her parents rather than abandoned by them, she would've brought the baby to the police straight away.
    • And on the other hand, the House of Father's and most father deities harbor some dislike to Gin. For as much as he loves his daughter and was crucial in reuniting Kiyoko with her parents, he nonetheless made his family's life difficult with his addictions, abandoned them when his gambling dept got loan sharks on his tail, and even claimed his wife and daughter to be dead for a fabricated backstory. Gin accepts much of the dislike, acknowledging that he was a poor excuse of a father and husband, and still doesn't even forgive himself. Not even when Kiyoko (his biological daughter, not the abandoned baby) herself explicitly forgave him for his mistakes.
  • Being a former bicycle racer actually a bike merchant, and still a superb cyclist, Gin gets along great with bike-riding deities. In particular, he's good friends with Mumen Rider; with the homeless man inspired by Satoru's courage and heroism despite lacking superpowers and fighting ability, while Mumen Rider was impressed with Gin's determination, which enabled him to survive a brutal beat down by delinquents and be crucial in rescuing Kiyoko from her kidnapper.
  • Gin can often be seen in the House of Alcohol, partaking in any drinks he could afford. Though he's been trying to cut back on his drinking, becoming aware that his alcoholism is his Fatal Flaw.
  • Hana spends much of her time in the House of Singers & Performers, doing what she loves most. Isn’t quite as good as she was back in her days performing for her Mother's Drag Queen Bar, but manages to draw in a good crowd from her sheer passion.
    • Alas, she gets heckled by some troublemaking deities from time to time. Hana is able to be professional about it though and ignore them. Provided she isn't called "old man" or "old fart", in which case the provoking deity receives a swift and powerful kick to the jaw.
  • Hana managed to strike up an acquaintance with Izumi Curtis, having learned of the woman's desire to be a mother only to lose her first and only natural child. The former which Hana could relate all too well, wanting to be a mother herself but unable to conceive children, and deeply sympathetic with the latter as it reminds her of Sachiko, who kidnapped Kiyoko in desperation to fill the void her miscarriage left. Aside from those points, Hana admires Izumi for her intense strength and excellent teaching (as harsh as she can be) while Izumi is charmed by Hana's singing and haikus.
  • Being the massive cat lover that she is, it came to no surprise to Gin and Hana that Miyuki would be overwhelmed by the plethora of feline deities within the Pantheon. The House of Felines nearly banned Miyuki from their grounds after she invaded everyone's personal space. But after she apologized and promised to respect their space, Miyuki became the best of friends to all but the most hostile feline deities. It helped that she is fiercely protective of the cat deities, being quick to get violent at anyone who would so much as joke about harming a cat. Jerry and Tweety nearly learned the hard way how far Miyuki would go to defend cats, and it took Tom and Sylvester's intervention to stop the protective cat-lover.
    • Of course, Miyuki's love for cats isn't completely unconditional; she's aware that there are plenty of feline deities that are very much evil or at least villainous and doesn't extend her fierce protection to them. Katz in particular earned Miyuki's ire for being representative of evil felines, and thereby giving cats a bad name.
  • The three earned the gratitude of Yakuza deities for when they saved a Yakuza boss from getting crushed under his own car. The trio doesn't really know how to feel about this, especially Gin and Miyuki, given that the former became homeless in part because he owed a Yakuza lieutenant money and the latter's father is a cop. Miyuki is also on friendly terms with the wife of the hitman who attempted to assassinate the aforementioned Yakuza boss but successfully shot the lieutenant, making the situation even more awkward for her.
  • One day, the three were approached by Sei and Stella, who had heard about their tale of returning a newborn girl to her family and wanted to give the trio their utmost gratitude: Sei especially, who used to be a police paramedic and was nothing short of impressed of three homeless people managing to do her kind of work. The two girls soon became friends with Hana and Miyuki respectively, with Hana and Sei bonding over their shared love of music and singing while Miyuki can't help but want to be around the Cat-boomer Stella, not that she minds the teen's attention (provided she doesn't stab anyone over her).
    • With Gin, on the other hand, while Stella gets along with him A-OK and invites him along with trips to "Valhalla", Sei harbors intensely mixed feelings towards him due to his alcoholism reminding the woman of her father. Once Hana, Miyuki, and Gin's Kiyoko caught wind of this, they were quick to explain to Sei that, though Gin wasn't the greatest father, he was anything but an abusive parent; having loved his wife and daughter with all his might, wouldn't have dared to lay a harmful to either of them, and actually left them because he felt they would be better off with him out of his lives, due to his addictions interfering with their livelihood. After that, Sei felt bad for subconsciously comparing Gin to her awful father and apologized to him, to which Gin assured her that she didn't need to apologize. He is, after all, still trying to forgive himself for his poor fatherhood in the past.
  • Gin, Hana, and Miyuki are also present in the House of Luckiness.

    Hijiri Mochizuki 
Hijiri Mochizuki, Goddess of White Christmas ("Holy Maiden", "Pure White Maiden", "White Snowflakes")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hijirir2.jpg
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A crystallized snowflake
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Snowy Christmas, Idol Singer, Carols, Commonly Appears During Winter, Snow Means Love, One of Most Conservative Clothed Idols, Born on Christmas Day
  • Domains: Snow, Christmas, Carols
  • Allies: Koume Shirasaka, Ranko Kanzaki, Eve Santaclaus, Mika Jougasaki, 765 Pro, Jack Frost, Elsa, Olaf
  • Hijiri is bit of a rare idol, not generally showing up around most of the year. However, whenever Christmas rolls around, she is sure to come around, spreading her hums and carols in the silent night. She also seems to be lucky that it always seems to snow when she's around.
  • While most Christmas-related deities are about the celebration of Christmas, she is different, as she is more fascinated with the mood around the Christmas time. She is more specifically fascinated about the snowy nights, as she finds them romantic.
  • When she heard that there is a god who represents Snow Means Love, she immediately wanted to meet them. After she met Jack Frost, she seems to have an interest in him. However, she is bit creeped out on the whole "Snow Means Death" thing and was sad to hear that he died in snow.
    • She also has a slight admiration for Elsa. Apparently she wishes to one day dress up as her for a concert. She is also interested in Olaf as a living snowman, and sort of representation of love between Elsa and Anna.
  • Isn't really seen outside the winter times, though she can occasionally appear if asked outside. Apparently she is sensitive to heat. Though one does wonder what she does outside the winter. Possibly living in colder climates?
  • Not to be confused with Byakuren Hijiri. It's not like the two of them mind any mix-ups or anything like that. We are also sure that she is not some Christmas saint, though some have stated she sometimes gives vibes of one when performing activities, or at least has an aura of maturity around her contrasting her age.
  • Contrary what some of the more crazier gods may think, she does not wish for an Endless Winter. That would be awful, even for her. This is why she doesn't have Kaldr in high regard.
