Greater Gods

    Mad King Thorn 
Oswald Thorn, Mad God of Halloween Events (Mad King Thorn)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/madkingthornp.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A candy corn.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: More Interested In Playing With The Playerbase Than Terrorizing Them, The Caligula, Disproportionate Retribution if you don't play along with his game, Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor, Large Ham, Laughably Evil, Enjoys Simon Sa-Sorry, Mad King Says, Stock Shticks
  • Domains: Holiday, Halloween, Spirits, Evil
  • Followers: Headless Horseman
  • Allies: Merasmus and his fellows, Oogie Boogie, Arthas Menethil, Pugna, Dormammu
  • Enemies: Sir Daniel Fortesque, Jack Skellington
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The Joker
  • Odd Friendship: Koume Shirasaka
  • Christmas Counterpart: Eve Santaclaus
  • The Mad King Thorn, wanting to ascend with a bang, burst through the ground near the Pantheon grounds, his pumpkin visage looming over bypassers and announcing that his reign of terror will begin with the year's Halloween! Only to be informed that it's not Halloween at the moment, and that he arrived too early. Mad King Thorn was quiet for a moment, slightly embarrassed that he mistimed his ascension. To make up for it, Thorn decided to play a simple game of Mad King Says with his "subjects", a game that is more dangerous than it seems like.
    • In life, Mad King Thorn was an insane and cruel king of Kryta, eventually killed in a peasant uprising. Now a powerful spirit of Halloween, he flies in from the Underworld every Halloween to "play" with living mortals. Thankfully, he's not so much of a threat anymore, but don't underestimate him still, as he will punish those who don't play along with simple death.
  • Jack Skellington is rather distraught that the other halloween-based deity is evil to the core, and thus opposes Oswald Thorn as a representative of Halloween.
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque fought pumpkin creatures in his home world. Seeing Thorn's pumpkin head made him think that he was one of them, and attacked him. Mad King Thorn was not amused.
  • Got along well with Merasmus and his fellows, as they are bosses in Halloween Events. Mad King Thorn especially likes the company of he Horseless Headless Horseman, being a pumpkin headed spirit too.
  • Has formed an alliance with Arthas, as they're both evil kings who have killed their own father.
  • Mad King Thorn and the Joker had something of a competition in their first encounter where they tried to one-up the other when it comes to evil comedy. They're somewhat cordial with each other, though it doesn't stop them from firing shots whenever they get the chance.
    Mad King Thorn: By the way Joker, your appearance remind me very much of my own son. It's uncanny.
    The Joker: I see, so I resemble a beloved family member of yours?
    Mad King Thorn: No. You resemble a disappointment.
  • In the Mad King's Realm, a horde of skeletons used to loyally serve him. That is, until his son Erdrick took over them and started using them as his own army against Thorn. This significantly displeased the king, and made him generally dislike deified skeletons as a result. He makes an exception for Pugna however, who he even claims would be a better son than Erdrick. But then, Mad King Thorn probably just says so to rile up the Bloody Prince even more.
  • Apparently, Koume Shirasaka was one of those who witnessed Thorn's mistimed ascension. She actually liked his looks enough that she's considering to cosplay as him for the next Halloween. When Mad King Thorn learned of it, he was actually genuinely flattered. As long she doesn't pretend to be him, he's sure they will get along just fine.
  • Said to get along with Dormammu because of their alignment and because their heads look similar.

Intermediate Gods

    Panda King 
The Panda King, God of Fireworks (Agent Monarch)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/panda_king.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A golden outline effigy of his head
  • Theme Song: Flame Fu!
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil at first, True Neutral now
  • Portfolio: Formerly Villainous Panda, Panda as his name, Always Referred By His Full Name, Fantastic Fireworks (as an art & as a weapon), Demolitions Expert, Acrofatic, Calling Your Attacks, Papa Wolf, Mighty Glacier, Incendiary Exponent, Large Ham (when excited about his fireworks), The Comically Serious
  • Domains: Fireworks, Pandas, Fire, Former Villains
  • Herald: His daughter, Jing King
  • Allies: The Cooper Gang (Sly Cooper, Bentley Turtle, Murray Hippo, Dimitri L. Lousteau, The Guru), Po, Chen & Li Li Stormstout, The League of Extreme Fatherhood, Mithra, the Techies, Tiny Tina, Zuko, Jubilee
  • Rivals: Tavish DeGroot the Demoman, Dr. Boom
  • Enemies: Clockwerk & Neyla (the first one being a former leader), Penelope Mouse (former gang member), Carmelita Fox, Lord Shen, Deidara, The Kraken
  • Elysium Academy was in trouble. The students responsible for setting off fireworks for one of their many events accidentally set them off too early, leveling one of its buildings (thankfully empty) in the process and leaving them with no fireworks. The Absurdly Powerful Student Council immediately looked for someone in the Pantheon who could create fireworks on such short notice but could find no one (all explosive experts only knew how to make bombs and other things that go boom). That was when Bentley suggested a questionable choice: Their former enemy-now ally, the Panda King. Without any other choice, the Student Council managed to bring him up and Panda King delivered with an amazing fireworks display that made even the Pantheon gods awestruck. Panda King is here to stay.
  • His formal welcoming party was short and simple with the Cooper Gang in attendance to see their ally join. Naturally, Panda King supplied his own fireworks. To their surprise, they saw that Jing King, his daughter, was also with him. Panda King said he was still looking for a suitable spouse for his daughter and he hopes to find one somewhere in the Pantheon. So far, it's been unsuccessful.
  • One of Panda King's joys is creating fireworks as they are Serious Business to him as he tends to wax-poetic of their beauty to anyone who visits his temple. Of course, aside from creating them, he enjoys displaying them. With many Pantheon events and even hired by the Pantheon Welcoming Committee to set off fireworks for newly-ascended deities, he finds himself busy but happy hearing all the wondrous comments of his trade.
  • As said before, one of his main reasons for joining the Pantheon was to find a suitable husband for his daughter and Herald, Jing King. As she is his other joy in life, he is fiercely protective of her. Should she even be harmed, say your prayers.
    • As such, he has allied himself with the League of Extreme Fatherhood. Panda King and Asura have both agreed to mutually allow their daughters to be together (and keep a close eye on them).
  • In addition to harming his daughter, another Berserk Button is insulting his fireworks expertise. The first time it happened was the catalyst for his turn to villainy and turning his fireworks into explosive demolition tools. Only after being beaten by Sly Cooper and his arrest was he able to find his spiritual center and no longer use his demolition expertise for heinous crimes. However, his fireworks are still useful for explosive purpose should he need to go on the offensive.
  • As a panda, he of course gets along with the others in the Pantheon. He sees Po as a possible suitor and is currently having him put to the test in a literal trial by fire to see if he's worthy. Both he and Chen are often seen drinking together and discussing various topics. He sees Li Li as a much younger Jing and tries to discipline her into not being so reckless but finds it hard to stick. Of course, she lets him take her Healing Brew which he is thankful for.
    • Even without knowing his hatred of pandas, Lord Shen is on his permanent bad side as the evil bird reminds him of General Tsao. Even though he missed the chance to cook the misogynisitc rooster before his arrest, he will make sure Shen is turned into roast peacock if he should harm any of his allies and especially Jing King.
  • As a former member of the Fiendish Five, there is absolutely no love loss between him and his ex-boss, Clockwerk. The owl was furious to learn Panda King eventually joined their mutual enemy all because of his daughter. Panda King warned Clockwerk that should he lay one talon on Jing King, he will use all his explosive expertise to turn him into scorched slag.
  • Many demo experts have wanted to test and see if he's as good as the Cooper Gang claim he is. Some (like the Techies and Tiny Tina) marveled at both the beauty and explosive powers of his fireworks which put him in good standing with him. Others (like the Demoman and Dr. Boom) were less tactful and called his work mediocre, earning rivalry status. Still, a few others (especially Deidara and the Trollkaiger), call his work a waste of time and an insult to explosions (even using the "frustrated fireworks artist turned homicidal pyromaniac" insult Sly once gave him), which is exactly the worst thing to say a proud artisan such as him. A smoking crater was all that's left of those who disrespect him.
  • Even though he no longer uses his fireworks for crime, Carmelita still wants him arrested once more due to his past and because he helped Sly. Even though Jing King sticks up for her father and claims he has turned over a new leaf, the obstinate inspector is waiting for one slip-up and she'll be down on him. Panda King merely glares at her coldly as he returns to making more fireworks.
  • Zuko was interested in Panda King's Flame-Fu and challenged him to a friendly sparring match, to which he honorably accepted. Their long battle scorched the ground they fought on but eventually they conceded a draw. Zuko was indeed impressed by the panda's uncanny ability to create fire and wonders if he is deep-down a firebender as well. In the end, the two went to Iroh's tea house for a post-fight drink to relax.
  • Even though she lost her mutant abilities, Jubilee enjoys watching Panda King's fireworks spectacles as they remind her of her old powers. Some days, she heads over to his temple workshop to see him craft fireworks. Panda King was adamant in having her visit him at first as she was a vampire (as he still remembers the vampires General Tsao summoned which he fought), but relented as he saw Jing King babysit and play with Shogo. The hopes of one day having his own grandson once Jing King married allowed him to warm up to Jubilee and her son.
  • The Kraken has a personal vendetta against Panda King after hearing how he managed to subdue his follower, Crusher of Blood Bath Bay. Panda King, however, shows no fear and warns the creature that the punishment he will give it will make Crusher's look like a slap on its tentacle if the Kraken chooses to attack him.

    Pinkie Pie 
Pinkie Pie, Goddess of Parties (Pinkamena Diane Pie, Fili-second, Equestria's Peppy Party Pony)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pinkie_Pie_2_Small_2187.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Cutie Mark (Three Balloons: two blue ones and a yellow one)
  • Theme song: Smile Song
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Heavy on the Chaotic)
  • "Weapon of Choice": Party Cannon
  • Portfolio: Awesome insanity, being out of this world, being ditzy... or not, cute hyperactivity, curly mane which occasionally changes to reflect her mood, acting like a child (even skipping like one), minimal attention span, fun ponified, pranking, eating a lot, Breaking the Fourth Wall, defying the laws of reality, having no sense of personal space, "okey dokey lokey", talking a lot, parties, alternate personalities
  • Domain: Friendship, Laughter, Parties, Fun, Hyperactivity, Innocence
  • Herald: Gummy, her toothless baby alligator
  • High Priest: Andrew W.K.
  • Followers: Bronies
  • Allies:
  • Pinkie Pie 1:1 "I'm a Goddess? Isn't this exciting? Are you excited cause I'm excited and I've never been so excited well except for that time I saw Twilight walking into Ponyville and I went GASP! but I mean really, what can top that?"
  • Had somehow ascended extremely quickly and has been seen making friends with many of the Gods and Goddess of the various houses, however she's just as likely to annoy and confuse everypony.
  • Can teleport, pop out of small objects, exist in two different places at once, run at ludicrous speed and otherwise defy the laws of reality.
    • Whenever she's near resident goddess Vanellope Von Schweetz, the two go into an epic teleporting match the likes that no one has ever seen.
  • Has probably thrown (or at least attempted to throw) parties for every single deity in the pantheon by now. That includes Evil gods and even entities on a cosmic level. Some were delighted. Some have gotten pissed. Some have gotten pissed at first, but THEN were delighted. Some of these attempts didn't go all that well, though, like that time Pinkie attempted to decorate Unicron in frilly ribbons and balloons.
  • Albeit associated with the House of Celebration Pinkie spends a lot of her time in the House of Food, where she bakes, and eats, a lot of sweets. Yes, including cupcakes. No, not THAT KIND of cupcakes.
  • Rumors that Pinkie Pie has attempted to assassinate other gods to steal their power and turn their skin into clothing are really just rumors. It IS known that Pinkie has a darker and allegedly more insane side which manifests when things don't go her way.
  • Pinkie once transformed into a rocket and burst with excitement at the taste of Princess Peach's delicious strawberry shortcakes.
  • As a Goddess of Periphery Demographics, people would assume that she should be opposed to Barney, God of Periphery Hatedoms. But that isn't the case at all. They actually get along splendidly; their respective shows even air next to each other in certain countries.
  • Ever since JK has become a God, Pinkie has chased him around with the suggestion of merging his JK Night parties with her own. The Gods shudder to think at the idea of what would happen if Pinkie convinced JK to do such a thing.
  • Pac-Man once tried to eat her after eating a Power Pellet, believing her to be one of the Ghosts.
  • Is currently in a race with Gentaro Kisaragi to see who can befriend the most gods. It's still ongoing, with both of them having an equal amount of friends in their pocket.
    • When Elena ascended, the three got along very well and decided that due to their love of making friends, they would be called "The Friendship Trio", where they would go to all newly ascended gods and throw them a humongous Friendship party in their honor.
    • During the events of "Project: Alternate Gentaro", it was a complete understatement to say she was entirely shattered of what happened. Thankfully, everything has been squared away and Gentaro came back to normal, but make any mention to what happened to him in the past is one of the EASIEST ways to make Pinkie cry (which is something you should NEVER do)
  • An incident happened when she accidentally stepped into a cloning pod. The result was a sea of Pinkie Pies screaming "Fun! Fun! Fun!" and making a mess out of the Pantheon. After getting the House of Combat and the Toku Base to round them all up, the House of Technology had to temporarily ban her until they ensured that the pink pony can never be cloned again.
  • It's her job to oversee everyone's birthday in the Pantheon, which she does due to having a spectacular Photographic Memory. However, there was that incident where she forgot her own birthday and everyone avoided her to get her surprise birthday party ready. Let's just say her Sanity Slippage was NOT a pretty sight.
  • Never, ever, ever break a Pinkie Promise with her. She will chase you down even more so than when she's trying to grab your attention on something all while screaming, "YOU PINKIE PROMISED!!!!".
  • How does she get those parties up and running so quickly? Simple! "I never leave home without my party cannon!"
  • With Jack Skellington's ascent into the Pantheon, she's been helping him out with his preparations for Halloween because, "It's fun being scared!"
  • Was indirectly responsible for the recent ascension of Roger Rabbit, after asking his assistance in a competion.
  • One of the few things that can put her in a bad mood is talking about the time she went completely apeshit and killed everyone.
  • Once sought the council of Segata Sanshiro, whom she heard had discovered the secret to making someone explode twice with his judo throw. No one's entirely certain if she succeeded in learning how, but no one's brave enough to test it out.
  • It's been rumored that Carmen Sandiego has taken an interest in and is considering making an offer to take her as her personal protégé due to their similar reality-defying capabilities, but has not yet done so due to doubts that she has regarding Pinkie's morality, difficulty in staying focused, and lack of a Punny Name. Pinkie herself seems to be unaware of any potential interest Carmen may have in her.
  • One day, an alpaca named Paprika approached her…and immediately decided to prove her love for the earth pony by combat. Pinkie had to use her party cannon, various oodles she keeps around in case of sudden-declaration-of-battle emergencies, and her 4th-wall abilities to the fullest to ward the alpaca off, and was reportedly a little disturbed at Paprika's freaky need for affection.
  • Was absolutely ecstatic to find her older sister Maud in the House of Narrative. However, Maud's ascension came during Project: Alternate Gentaro and well, let's just say that Maud being "protective" of Pinkie during the events of "Muse Hysteria" were...not sister-like. She has forgiven Mitsuzane Kureshima (the sole cause—well not the sole cause, long story—of "Project: Alternate Gentaro") and hosted a party in his name.
  • Recently, she was called up for a death battle....with Deadpool. The entire pantheon cringed, dreading the result.
    • There was good news and bad news with the fight. The good news was that nobody died in the fight aside from some mirror clones. However, as a result of their similar powers and interests, the 2 of them ended up briefly harassing Screw Attack. Not Wiz and Boomstick, Screw Attack. As this method could be used by the Anti-Monitor to succeed in his destruction of all reality beyond his medium, the Gods PLEADED with the two of them to NEVER do this again.
      • When Pinkie found out it was Deadpool's birthday, she threw him an awesome birthday party. The 2 became best friends afterwards, and as such, Pinkie will sometimes visit her cherrychanga friend to go tease the bad guys or throw awesome parties together.
  • Also resides in Happiness.

Lesser Gods

    Jack O'Lantern 
Jack O'Lantern, Damned Soul of Halloween
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jackjackjack.jpg
  • Lesser God (Intermediate with the Reaper's scythe)
  • Symbol: The pumpkin replacing his head
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (used to be Chaotic Neutral)
  • Portfolio: The Prankster, Stingy Jack, Decapitated By Grimm For His Pranks, Pungeon Master, Evil Is Hammy, Uses A Pumpkin As A Head, Who Wants to Live Forever?, Terrified Of Knights
  • Domains: Pranks, The Cursed, Halloween
  • Followers: Pyro Jack, Pumpkinhead, Samhain
  • Allies: Oswald Thorn, Murkrow, Zeref, Ryuk
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: T.J Detweiler
  • Enemies: Billy and Mandy, GRIM, Charles-Henri Sanson, Eric Cartman, Artoria Pendragon, The Evil Queen, Sapphire Rhodonite, Dirty Harry, Death (Regular Show), The Ghostbusters
  • Opposes: All other gods of death, Dio Brando
  • Opposed by: Jack Skellington, Timmy Turner
  • Pities: Faust, AZ, and every god who was decapitated (especially Jonathan Joestar)
  • Fears: All knights in the pantheon
  • Pumpkins have often been associated with Halloween, and everything spooky. Where did this tradition come from? If you ask the people of Endsville, it started with a malcontent by the name of Jack. He loved to play pranks, and though a pleasant guy, he didn't know when to stop. The townspeople were so sick of him that they decided to off him through a ruse: they sent a gift under his name to the Queen of Endsville (yes, they had a Queen). Horribly unamused by the prank, she sent her knight to kill Jack. When Grim came to collect, Jack deterred him long enough to trick him out of his scythe. In exchange for the scythe back, Jack asked for immortality so he could play pranks on people forever. However, Grim is not one who likes to be tricked like that and so decapitated Jack as payback. Replacing it with a pumpkin, he later ascended to the pantheon as the cursed soul of Halloween.
  • Because of his condition, he can only be "normal" during Halloween. Filled with bitterness, he hoped to cause endless chaos in Endsville with the hopes of making it Halloween every day. Mad King Thorn was very happy to learn of Jack O'Lantern, and his desire to promote Halloween. For the time being he's taken on the prankster as his apprentice. While Jack Skellington does like the idea of more Halloween, he still opposes his evil ways. Timmy Turner also opposes him because he's tried to make it be one holiday for the whole year, only to backfire.
    • Though he lost his own head, he's still capable of a good head pun or three. Or eleven.
  • It is not a matter of simply having his head cut off that irks him; any head decapitated by Grim's scythe can never be re-attached. He's forced to use a pumpkin for a head. He was enraged upon learning that a god of decapitation exists in the pantheon, and has sworn to take him out. Being a victim of decapitation, he does seem to show some mercy to other decapitated godsnote . He is really sympathetic to Jonathan Joestar, for suffering a fate worse than permanent beheading; having your worst enemy defile your body by making it his own. He considers Dio disgusting for this.
  • Is indignant towards the House of Justice, due to how he got into trouble; sure, he was a little naughty as The Prankster and didn't know when to stop, but he didn't mean to be malicious and thought they were having a laugh. Granted, he did trick a guy into falling off the cliff so he's not entirely innocent. Particularly angered by the vigilantism likes of Harold Francis Callahan.
  • He's high up on the Ghostbusters' hit list due to having commanded an army of spirits and his vendetta against the Grim Reaper, along with his M.O being similar to Samhain.
  • Though immortal, he's sick of it. He's lived since at least the colonial times (even possibly medieval given how Endsville had a queen of all things) unable to ever be normal again, only able to buy his groceries on Halloween. And as his immortality was given to him by Death himself, he dislikes the other Grim Reapers of the pantheon. Especially in the case of the one from Regular Show, being the other Grim Reaper of Cartoon Network and a gambler in his own. He and Zeref get along in hopes of getting back at Death. That being said, he isn't against every god of death; him and Ryuk get along due to their humorous nature.
    • However, as plenty of people point out, Jack becoming immortal was his own doing and because he wanted to prank people for all eternity. Many consider him getting his head cut-off as light punishment for tricking the Grim Reaper.
  • He pities the likes of Faust and AZ. For Faust, it's because they suffered from a Deal with the Devil (well Death in Jack's case, but there wasn't much difference). For AZ, it's due to their respective curses of immortality over their past transgressions.
  • He appreciates a good prank or trick, of which proved to be his downfall; Irwin falling for prank after prank led him and his spirit army to be overwhelmed by laughter, his pumpkin forces laughing themselves to death and him at Grimm's mercy. He's very impressed by the pranks that T.J Detweiler pulls and likes to hang out with him. T.J appreciates it, but thinks Jack goes too far.
  • Really similar to Candlejack, who goes on Halloween with him. Also likes hanging on with Murkrow.
  • When not causing trouble in the pantheon, he's stuck in the underworld where he still plays pranks. He'd had to get some more pumpkin heads after taunting them, and the main reason he's in the pantheon is that the denizens of Hell wanted to boot him out. While he hasn't learned not to prank demons and others in the House of Otherness, he knows pranking Eric Cartman is a bad idea. Considering what happened to Scott Tenorman when he tried...
  • He sounds like Al and Emperor Zurg, but reminds the Toys from Toy Story he has nothing in common with them. And while they share the same name and Halloween motif, he'd like to remind Spiderman he's not the Jack O'Lantern that's part of his Rouges Gallery. No connections to the SMT Multiverse either, asides from taking a shine to Pyro Jack and having him as a follower.
  • Some have mistaken him for Jack Horner, due to him representing the legend of Stingy Jack. They're not the same, and he considers the other Jack O'Lantern to be annoying. In part he's jealous at his ability to scam the gods.
  • He fears all knights in the pantheon, as it was a knight who did kill him to begin with. He also dislikes queens as one ordered his death, particularly the petty Queen of Hearts since she loves beheadings. Learning that Artoria, a queen and knight was in the pantheon? He huddled in the corner, having a nervous breakdown.
    • Being a valkyrie (the Norse answer to a knight) and queen, he fears Sapphire Rhodonite the most out of all gods. Especially since she's good with an ax (chop chop).

    The Teensies 
The Teensies, Divine Group Of The Gratuitous Disco Sequence
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teensie_4592.png
A Green Teensy, the most common kind of Teensy
The Grand Minimus 
Ales Mansay the Magician 
  • Lesser Gods on average
  • Symbol: The crown of the Grand Minimus, their primary ruler
  • Theme Songs: The Teensy Highway and their Rayman M/Arena theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good on average; Ales Mansay, however, is more Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Disco Tech, Gag Nose, Gratuitous Disco Sequence, I Have to Go Iron My Dog (in Rayman 3), Master of Unlocking (one method utilizes That Russian Squat Dance)
  • Domains: Magic, Dance, Music (especially disco), Royalty (Grand Minimus), Machinery (Ales Mansay; especially Steampunk)
  • Heralds: Otto Psi, Roméo Patti, and Gonzo
  • Follower: Jon Arbuckle
  • Allies: Rayman, Betilla, Globox, Samus Aran, The Guardians, Amigo
  • Enemies: Razorbeard, the Eliksni, Ridley, Felix, Black Manta, other evil pirates and robots, nightmarish villains, Balthazar Bratt (to most Teensies)
    • Ales only: Rayman, Betilla, Globox
  • Wary of: Pirates and robots in general
  • Intrigued by: Zinogre
  • The Teensies, a race of small, magically-inclined people, have a rather strange quirk common among them: They seem to really like disco. In fact, they tend to do it at some rather inappropriate times (at least, from the viewers' perspective). For this reason, the race has been deified to represent this trope. Take a wild guess what kind of welcoming party Pinkie threw for them.
  • The leader of all the Teensies is the Grand Minimus, though the tiny folk have a lot of kings and queens. The Grand Minimus has thus been chosen to be the representative for his people.
    • The three Teensy doctors — Otto Psi, Roméo Patti, and Gonzo (not to be confused with the Muppet) — have been chosen to be the Teensy heralds.
    • Less thrilling to the Teensies is that Ales Mansay — lately known as the Dark Teensy — is to share the same temple as them, at least until he can have his own trope(s) to rule over.
  • Of course Rayman, Globox, and Betilla were happy to see this ascension; familiar, friendly faces in this pantheon are a welcome sight. They hope to see friends like Ly and Barbara ascend at some point, but aren't holding their collective breath.
  • Inversely, the Teensies were not pleased to know Admiral Razorbeard was also in the Pantheon, after he and his crew of robotic pirates had enslaved the entirety of the Glade of Dreams.
    • Because of the actions of Razorbeard and his crew, the Teensies are wary of robots and pirates in general, rightly so in the case of the more wicked individuals.
      • Ridley being a space pirate, combined with his shocking brutality, guaranteed that the Teensies would be terrified of him. Samus promised them that if her parents' killer ever gunned for them, she would fight him off to the best of her ability.
      • Other nasty pirates they try to avoid are Felix — false friendship is a huge no-no — and Black Manta — who killed Aquaman's son.
  • The good-aligned Teensies are none-too-crazy about Balthazar Bratt, a villain who is a fan of disco. They claim people like him make the genre look bad. Ales Mansay, on the other hand, likes Bratt's style.
  • The lupine monster Zinogre has intrigued the majority of the Teensy populace. After all, whoever heard of a wolf that break-dances as it fights?
  • The Teensies found a very similar group of creatures in the Guardians. The Guardians are the last hope for the humanity of their world and are perfectly capable of taking on actual gods, yet have the odd tendency to dance at strange times, even if there's no music playing.
    • The Guardians warned the Teensies about an enemy of theirs that was also in the Pantheon: the Eliksni, an entire race of cutthroat space pirates that revere technology. To the Teensies, the Eliksni are too similar to Razorbeard and his crew.
  • They learned of Amigo's tendency to make people around him dance to his music. They approve very much of this, and have suggested some disco songs he could play. Amigo said he would consider it.

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Alliance Marines logo on his gray T-shirt. Alternatively, the N7 Tattoo on his back.
  • Alignment: Neutral to Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Adorkable Audience Surrogate, The Big Guy Boisterous Bruiser who ocassionally Drives like a SPAZZ, Hero-Worshipper, Loaded with Incendiary Ammo, Latin Lover, Mr. Fanservice, Naïve Newcomer, Nice Guy, The Nicknamer, Has impressively chiseled pecs, Prefers loosening up while the Galaxy is at war, Space Marine
  • Domains: Celebration, Space, War, Combat
  • Direct Superior: Commander Shepard
  • Allies:
  • Rival: (surprisingly) Don Flamenco
  • Enemies: The Illusive Man, Harbinger (By Extension from Shepard), M. Bison, Vega
  • Previously posted as Commander Shepard's guard detail on Earth while the latter was court-martialled, partly for working with Cerberus (in fighting the Collectors, mind), and partly for destroying a mass relay in order to delay the Reaper invasion. He became part of the Normandy crew when he assisted in getting Shepard out of Earth, in order to gather reinforcements and to build a superweapon that would thwart the Reaper threat.
  • He was rather reluctant to go at first, as he felt that leaving Earth would be bad for his conscience; but seeing as Shepard got his hands full with gathering allies against the Reapers, he decided to help deal with, in his own words, the "pendejo politicians" governing the galaxy.
  • With that said though, he's the type who is able to chill out and mingle without any worry while the war was underway. Most of the time he hangs out at bars with a few soldiers like him, plays cards with refugees at the docks, or treats some of the Normandy crew to a smoking plate of Huevos Rancheros which he learned to cook from his Abuela (Which has the House of Food taking notice.)
    • He is still a very committed and capable soldier when the need arises, notwithstanding his down-time activities. In fact, he was selected by the Alliance top brass for the N7 Training program (the same program that Shepard underwent prior to his Spectre status) the day before the Reaper invasion. Though his reckless piloting of the Normandy's landing shuttle back on Mars has been put to scrutiny (then again, Shepard's driving was proven to be worse.)
    • There were some reports that he has rigged out a still down by the Normandy's cargo bay, as evidenced by Ashley ending up drunk in one of the crew cabins. Shepard has so far not commented on the matter.
  • Quite fond of making nicknames as well, as it's his way of remembering the peers he works with. Ditto with making up stories, particularly with Garrus; claims that such skill is a gift.
  • There were some reports that his occasional recklessness stems from his Survivor Guilt when he was forced to save important data on the Collectors at the price of leaving an entire colony to die; moreso data which was not needed when Shepard and his crew took out the Collector base. Which kind of explains why he was initially reluctant to accept his N7 promotion until Shepard convinced him to take it anyways.
    • Apart from the N7 promotion, the various ascended Chapter Masters have considered making him a Space Marine, probably because of his physique and combat skills. James has initially taken interest but declined, partly because he already took the N7 offer, and partly because he thinks their Space Marine training is probably way too serious.
  • He's also known as one of Alex Armstrong's longtime followers, though he has yet to make his muscles sparkle like the former. Doesn't stop him from showing off his physique at times, which does elicit some Squee! from the female deities.
  • The God of Rebel Leaders seem to have taken interest in his combat skills as well, partly for having the same name, and partly for his "enthusiasm" and muscular build, which reminded him of his Vitriolic Best Buds Tychus Findlay. To be fair to Vega though, he's not exactly as tall or as "decorated" as Tychus and he'd like to keep it that way.
  • Thanks to his surname, Bison and the other Vega are wondering why a lowly farm boy turned Space Marine would dare make his way into the Pantheon. Though the God of "Beautiful" Combat would not mind putting James in his place through a one-on-one fistfight. The latter, wary of his abilities with his claws, doesn't mind a challenge from him.
  • Oddly, the Spaniard Boxer from the Sub-House of Cultures met James on one occasion, and immediately challenged him to a boxing match. He lost.
  • Despite being on good terms with Kasumi Goto, he still has not forgiven her much for the time he lost the push-up challenge with Kaidan (and Jacob) because she sat on his back.
  • With the revelation of Shepard being the Avatar in a different universe, there have been talks of seeing if her/his other squadmates have potential to be benders. James in particular is reported to have some affinity to earth
