  • Given the fact that the Houses of Science and Magic are usually at odds with one another, Penny's mere existence is seen as a novelty. curiosity, or even an affront

  • Robo does admit to bearing a modicum of envy to her for inheriting magic since he had been explicitly told by Speccio that robots cannot learn magic because he lacks a soul (and which Penny has managed to acquire via Pietro's use of his Aura so she can generate it, and later when she inherits the Winter Maiden powers by its previous bearer Fria), but quickly left that behind since she's a friend.

After Ash insisted once again, Prima finally agreed to a battle - that Ash lost horribly. Prima said that Ash had the potential to become great, but needed to find more inner strength, since he had forgotten what really connecting with his Pok�mon was.

Prima has a sort of dreamy, spaced-out personality and often reacts slowly to things. Her strategy in life is to go with the flow, like water, but to become as hard as ice in battle. She sells recordings of her lectures at high prices.Pok�mon

  • Finding a candidate for this trope was not an easy task, given how casual the genre is, but given how often there are actually candidates for tropes that were unlikely to have them, then this would be no problem either for the Court of the Gods. And find one they did in the form of an archmage/beastmaster by the name of Rivel Arday.
  • A mage of legendary stature from the kingdom of Yshmea, Rivel was sometimes called the Fist of the Beast or simply the Great Mage. Strange markings pattern his left hand, these giving him power over creatures great and small. Though his outward appearance is that of a young man, he has lived for well over a century. Some even say he is an Immortal. A singularly unique individual, he does not trouble himself with worldly affairs save at the king's behest.
  • After the conclusion of the events in Aldemona Wood, as well as putting the spirit of Qraist to rest, Rivel was approached with an invitation to join the Pantheon's ranks. After being given everything he needed to know about the place, he decided to take them up on the offer.
  • It's not known how the gameplay integrates with his world, and no one quite really knows what exactly makes a Gyromancer, but it is known that Rivel is a formidable beastmaster, and with an array of powerful monsters he can call forth. There's a portal to the Summoner's Den in his world so he can swap between the three he can carry at a time, especially since there are no Gyro Codes for the other creatures in the Pantheon. As far as he can tell, anyway.

    Elspeth Cullen 
Apparently, I can't be trusted with working on this, so if anyone wants to take it, then by all means go ahead.

Elspeth Annarose Cullen, Goddess of Rationalist Fiction (Elsie, Genealoger Extraordinaire, Princess Elspeth of the Golden Coven/Empire, Elspeth the Imperial Soothsayer)

  • Portfolio: Dhampyr, Was Reneesme In Canon, Bad Liar (sort of), Can Broadcast Her Thoughts And Memories To Others, Heart Is an Awesome Power, Younger Than They Look, Omniglot, Time Abyss (By Way Of Proxy Memory Transfer From Aro)
  • Domain(s): Half-Vampires, Memory, Truth, Rationality
  • Herald: Imperial Alpha Jacob Black (her imprinter)
  • Allies: Harry James Potter-Evans-Verres, Mina Tepes, Akira Kaburagi, and Yuki Saegusa, Isabella, Chuck Bartowski
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: Indiscriminate vampire hunters and evil vampires

  • Notes about your chosen deity
  • Finding a candidate for Rational Fic was a daunting task, mainly because the best candidates were from fanfics, and several of them already have canon counterparts in the Pantheon (had, in one case nearly nobody remembers). And then someone in the Court of the Gods found an ideal pick. Amidst all the protests upon hearing where she came from, especially by the PPC, these were quelled after inspecting her character, and seeing that she at least deserved a chance.
  • It was Dream who went to visit the world Elspeth came from, and was mildly interested with what her mother has done and is planning to do with it. Eventually, he contacted Elspeth in a dream and explained everything about the Trope Pantheons, how things there don't fully operate on rational thought, that the world operates in a narrative sense, that significant change won't come easy, and other caveats that ensure that she won't actually need to be away from the Golden Empire for too long; in fact, having a capital in the Pantheon can be a sound idea. Oh, and that she was chosen to represent the trope Rational Fic.
    • As for why she was picked rather than her mother, she was given two reasons. 1) Being a fanfic version of a canon character was enough reason to bar her from entry. 2) The canon character in question... wasn't well liked at all (even though nobody knows why anymore) and has been removed. Elspeth then asked what this canon version of her mother was like. Dream showed her (and therefore knowledge of the Disgraces)... and she was quick to agree that they had a point.
    • Being a fanfic character, upon entry to the Pantheon, Elspeth was screened by the Protectors of the Plot Continuum and put under The Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test before she could enter the Pantheon proper. She barely passed the test and earned a spot here.
  • Elspeth's power is the ability to make herself understood, and she can do that by touching someone and showing them what she means or how she feels, or convey the objective truth and be believed. She can also use this indirectly to learn things about other people, depending on what explanations they understand, what analogies make sense to them, and so on.
    • She's also developed it to the point where she can send her memories to others (and translate them if need be), and pass her thoughts to others from range. She can even send enough memories to overwhelm someone (though given Death Is Cheap, it's ultimately not advantageous). Or transmit the feeling of pain (specifically, the pain from turning into a vampire in her world).
      • She's careful not to send too much memories, for it can effectively erase a human-level mind of everything that makes them who they are. Thankfully, this is reversible in the Pantheon, though harder to do than "plain" death.
    • As a consequence of her powers, it's obvious if she's telling an outright lie, unless she never told the truth to the person she's talking to.
  • Has two other personality aspects that she discusses with at times and help process things.
    • Magic, who "itches" whenever Elspeth lies (she only twinges at out-of-context misleading truths), even if she's mentally compromised (thus eroding its effect on her), and values being truthful above all else. It also helps her figure out the objective truth.
    • Memory, who helps sift through Elspeth's massive archive of memories that she's picked up from when Addy (with Aro's memorieshow much? and Elspeth's powers (for that moment)) passed them to her.
      • As such, she has an immense wealth of knowledge, from firsthand perspectives of the fall of Rome, authentic Sanskrit accents, books memorized, instruments played, doctorates, and who knows how many others.
  • Memories might've been removed, but the feelings behind them can still linger, which is why on her first few days, Elspeth received unexplained stigma from some deities in the Pantheon. Only some, because others have ascended long after the "removal" and thus do not harbor those feelings. Her truthfulness has also helped against the stigma, so that eventually faded.
    • If anything, Elspeth has more reason to hate the original Twilight, especially given its decidedly-not-rational thinking her mother does there, the fact that Jacob somehow became love rivals with her father, every unbelievably (to Elspeth) stupid decision her mother's made there, etc. Let's just say that when the Trollkaiger dropped off the book in her temple one day, the entire House felt her outburst of frustration and grief after the first few chapters.
    • As someone who's partially a joke on the books by virtue of her name, Twilight Sparkle understands the feeling. She also appreciates Elspeth's rational way of thinking, even if Twilight tends to veer off into paranoia at times.
  • As someone who possesses an obscene amount of information, she's made connections with Isabella and Chuck. While she sort of understands the former's situation (having been specifically made to be a weapons database, only learning how to be human thanks to Will), she's confused with how the latter (with the INTERSECT in his head and the inconsistencies of its origin) hasn't lost his sense of self. To be fair, Chuck "merely" possess intel and skillsets, not entire lifetimes worth of memories like Elspeth has.
  • Given Elspeth's mother's ultimate goal, Mina Tepes appreciates her for it and laments that she could've thought about that before making her Vampire Bund and race public; the pressure of her "suitors" likely influenced her thought process. Mina also wished she was that ambitious, though the sunlight weakness (and not simply sparkling) makes that impractical, even though she does have sunblock supplies to answer that issue.
    • The fact that the Vampire Bund has werewolf servants makes Elspeth feel a bit awkward; the Volturi in her world had sort of done the same, but with Mind Rape (by way of someone who can strengthen and weaken relationships, and thus their capacity to care).
    • Elspeth and the Vampire Bund trio also happen to share another thing in common; a certain literary series influenced their ascension to the Pantheon, the three due to the most popular option being inadvisable, and the half-vampire from a tangential source of origin.
    • Given their shared goals, Elspeth has been rendered an enemy to indiscriminate vampire hunters and the evil vampires of the Pantheon.
  • For those who can literally fall apart yet whose body parts are autonomous, Elspeth can be a big help thanks to her memory powers.
    • Speaking of disassembly, given the Volturi subjected her father to this, Elspeth is not fond of them.
  • Has noticed how Violetta's Smoke Knight skills bear some similarities to Allirea's powers in that she and her actions can escape notice in defiance of logic. However, there are some clear differences. 1) The Smoke Knight can only make her presence and actions unnoticeable, not her existence. 2) Even when noticed, she can still somehow make certain actions of hers ignorable (like swapping a hostage for a dummy while the hostage-taker was talking to her). 3) This hiding ability isn't infallible. 4) She's apparently not even that good; better Smoke Knights are able to leaf through a book guarded by two people (one a Super Soldier with enhanced senses and the other a battle-hardened warrior) without them noticing until after they decided to make themselves known.

    Sam Starfall 
Sam Starfall, The God Who Is Impossibly Delicious ("a larcenous squid in an environment suit", Weapon of Mass Distraction)

    Soldier A 
Soldier A, God of Disposable Good Mooks (The Unsung Hero of Anime)
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A legion of small soldiers lining up� with one missile heading towards them without them noticing
  • Alignment: Varies
  • Portfolio: Dying A Lot, Mooks, Red Shirt, Punch Clock People
  • Domains: War, Combat, Death.
  • Followers:
  • Ally: Kenny McCormick, Green Biker Dude
  • Not only he's the Unsung Hero of Anime, by entering the Pantheon, he's now the Unsung Hero of Every Action Media Ever... which increases their dying chance tenfold.
  • He only has one line but saves the day, being called upon to yell or grunt or scream, even if his mouth is never seen.
  • A monster, a mecha, or a guy. Doesn't matter which, he's gonna die!
  • He's courageous, brave, and dangerously strong! But he won't be around for very long! 'cause his platoon gets blown away!
    • Oh, and he doesn't mind if he's used by Mori Motonari. After all, he's a disposable mook.

"Welcome to the Cathedral of Shadows, where demons gather."

Mido, Divine Manager of Fusion Technology (The Minister, Master of the Cathedral of Shadows)
His appearance in 'SMT III
His appearance in 'SMT IV as an AI in Flynn's Gauntlet/Nanashi's phone
himself converted into data to continue serving those interested in the secrets of his art.
  • There are a few caveats, though. The demons fused in the Cathedral of Shadows are bound by an unwritten law of subjugation, where the newly formed demon will only serve under a master of equal or greater strength. Because of this, Mido will refuse Demon Fusion if the client will be unable to keep the demon in check.
  • Occasionally dabbles in darker sacrificial rituals. While the results are of superior quality, he has some misgivings about using them due to a higher chance of Fusion Errors. Is spite of this, he has successfully ironed out enough kinks in his regular tech to mostly null the power of the Random Number God over his regular fusions, ensuring a much higher likelihood of getting exactly what his clients want.
  • Has declined to allow the Doctor to examine his machines as a matter of professional pride. His loyal clients, mainly Stephen's Messiahs, also protect him, so it's usually a terrible idea to try to do it by force.
  • Due to providing similar services, though for Personas only,
  • Is one of the few allowed to keep a digital copy of the Demonic Compendium.
  • Mao has been visiting him in order to figure out how to build his own fusion machine without it blowing up on him.

    The Elements of Harmony 
The Elements of Harmony
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: The Power of Friendship, rainbows, magical jewelry
  • Domains: Friendship, Rainbows, Magic
  • Princess Celestia moved the Elements of Harmony here once every one of their Bearers was deified in hopes that the heavy security in the Pantheon might prevent another Discord fiasco.
  • The Elements of Harmony can only be activated by having all of their 6 bearers (Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy) together, and united in friendship, otherwise they will fizzle.
  • The Elements of Harmony have in the past demonstrated the power to topple beings of Godlike power, therefore needless to say the security on them is pretty high. It would have been even higher, but thankfully it is unlikely villains would be able to use them for ill intent. For the Grand United Alliance of Good, the Elements are an ace in the hole, potentially presenting a threat to even Melkor himself!
  • The Jewels are merely the conduit for the power. The Elements themselves are within their bearers.
  • The Elements were used once to remove Discord from the pantheon. Afterwards, Applejack stepped down, though she can still be called in once more. However, she has recently ascended into a different position.
    • The Elements were also used to release him from his stone prison and return him to the Pantheon. He has been in good behavior.
  • When using the Elements, all the bearers (who aren't of higher rank) are temporarily elevated to Intermediate Goddess status. With the Rainbow Power, they reach Greater Goddess status. In fact, this was the source of initial confusion behind the Mane Six (and Princesses Celestia and Luna)'s true level of Goddess status.
  • Some theorists have been wanting to further test out the Elements to see if they can adapt to other potential bearers should their present six holders be unable to use them for any reason, and have their eyes set on the core Sailor Senshi (and Tuxedo Mask). But honestly, they hope such a situation would never come to pass.

Diplomacy (Dip, The Hobby, The Friendship Breaker)

    Rework: TV World 
The TV World, Celestial Seat of Ominous Fog (The Midnight Channel, Mayonaka TV)
The Entrance Hall
  • A foggy world where Shadows lurk. Within is the place where people with problems can confront their Inner Shadows.
  • Symbol: TV with a 'hypnotic eye' screen.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: TV Worlds, Eldritch Locations, Psychological Torment Zones, Lairs of Shadows and Shadow Archetypes, Ominous Fog, Formed Through People's Thoughts, Beliefs, and Desires
  • Domain: Television, Inner Selves, Shadows, Fog
  • Sacred to: The Investigation Team (especially Yu Narukami), Izanami
  • The TV World (and the Midnight Channel, which is broadcasted from within the TV World) was created by Izanami for humans to show their hidden sides and for others to see them. What actually came out of it wasn't in her plans.
  • It all started as an Urban Legend in Inaba, which Chie Satonaka shared with Yosuke Hanamura and Yu Narukami one day.
    Chie: You're supposed to look into a TV that's switched off, alone, exactly at midnight on a rainy night. While you're staring at your own image, another person will appear on the screen... And they say that person's your soulmate.
    • One rainy night, Yu investigated this rumor at home, and indeed found that it existed. But when he touched the screen, he found his hand being sucked in. Fortunately for him, his TV was too small for his entire body to fit through and he was able to pull himself out. He told his friends the next day, though they naturally laughed it off. But when he found that he could still reach through TVs when he tried it with a wide-screen one in Junes, they started freaking out, and they ended up stumbling in. The first thing they noted once they were inside was the thick fog, and it was oppressive to bear. It's also where they fist met Teddie, who explained the nature of the TV World to them (the second time after pushing them out the first time).
  • The Team used to speculate that there was a connection between a person's appearance in the Channel and their abduction. However, Izanami revealed that it's actually because their recent mentions on television put them in the public interest. The appearance of Adachi's victims before he threw them in was largely a coincidence, but he exploited the misinterpretation to trick Taro Namatane into kidnapping people who appear on TV and chuck them into the TV World for "safety".
  • After Izanami's defeat by Yu's Izanagi-no-Okami's Myriad Truths, she had lifted her fog, revealing a beautiful landscape, with lakes, forests, and "sunlight". This only applies to Inaba's TV World however; the Pantheon's proved to be different, as the Investigation Team would soon find out after Igor hinted on its emergence as a Dominion to Yu.
  • The entrance comprises of the TV the Investigation Team used to enter it, though it was now in a tiny warehouse. While it was later discovered that the TV World can technically be accessed through any television, this one is the main entrance that would lead directly to the area mentioned in the bullet below. Only Persona-users can open the way, though there have been a few exceptions such as Fighter McWarrior (because he didn't realize he can't), Deadpool (his powers tend to be in flux to bypass this), and Gex (he's entered through TVs before).
    • The portal closes after a few seconds pass without a Persona-user (or Gex) touching the TV, and if there's something between, it will get cut, as the Investigation Team founders discovered with a rope Chie held onto, with the other end tied around Yu and Yosuke as they went through without her. No one wants to find out what would happen if living matter was cut this way.
  • The Pantheon's TV World was revealed to be substantially different in terms of geography. Rather than starting in an empty stage just like Inaba's, the Team found themselves in a place called the Persona Gallery.
    • This Gallery's entrance and exit takes the form of a stack of TVs, just like what Teddie summons. There were three gallery halls that went in separate directions. The one they first faced was empty, but the opposite one revealed portraits depicting two figures each: a known Persona-user, and their acquired Persona, starting with the Investigation Team themselves. Past their portraits were those depicting S.E.E.S./the Shadow Operatives (Labrys included), and several more from times past (those from Sumaru City, and the Students of St. Hermelin High), those not associated with any groups (Tohru Adachi, Marie, and Sho Minazuki), antagonists (like Kandori, JOKER, and Strega), and more (like the Ayanagi Investigation Squad), with those ascended taking precedence, their order changing with each new deity. Upon their eventual ascensions, portraits of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts would also be found, and it's likely that the same will apply to future Persona-user teams. This hallway also turned out to eventually lead back to the exit with little indication of having turned.
    • At the end of the empty hallway was a shimmering portal, as well as a magical drop-down list that named every Dungeon the Team has visited, including the Hollow Forest where they learned the truth about Marie, and the P-1 Grand Prix venue where they first met Labrys and some of the Shadow Operatives. Upon using that list and crossing the portal, they found themselves at the selected Dungeon. Each of them also had a portal back to the Gallery. The fog from before was also present, requiring their glasses to see through (though Yu doesn't need them since beating Izanami, he wears them anyway as a form of solidarity). As for the areas beyond the Dungeons, that was uncharted territory they were not willing to explore just yet.
    • Later that night, after the Team all went home to their (then-separate) temple(s), they received a dream of being in the Velvet Room and facing Igor and Philemon, who explained to them why the TV World was in the Pantheon, and that it will "see use" soon. Separately, Yu had asked Izanami about the fog in the new TV World, but she denies being responsible, as does Ameno-Sagiri, and both are curious as to the fog's existence in the new Dominion. As it turns out, it's because of its nature as a Pantheon Dominion and the trope title it now holds.
  • Weeks after that, Yosuke was trying to catch some sleep amidst loud construction noises over at Varrick's temple when his off TV turned on. Curious and concerned about the Midnight Channel rearing its head once again, he saw a yellow pony with a red mane and hair bow advertising about cutie marks. He immediately call the others, and they confirmed it too; somepony has ended up in the TV World. With no way to determine how long she would last before the fog lifts and leaks into the Pantheon proper (if it even does) and the Shadows decide to kill her, they had to hurry.
    • Eventually, the Team gathered at the entrance, though with a tag-along Yosuke had to take along the way; Applejacknote , after she heard from Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle about Apple Bloom's abduction via an unidentified shadow entity. Despite the risks, the earth pony was adamant in coming with, and with time against them, the Team let her come.
    • After crossing the TV, then reaching the portal, before the list could be consulted, Applejack plunged through without a second thought, forcing the Team to follow suit. They would later discover (through Philemon) that the portal responds to the thoughts of those who cross it, which is how the party ended up straight to Apple Bloom's Dungeon, which seemed to pertain to her insecurities in her prospective cutie marknote .
    • Depsite needing to guide Applejack (who is inconvenienced by the fog, but is pushing through anyway), they eventually found Apple Bloom and her Shadow, and once it went berserk, the Team engaged it in battle while Applejack pulled her sister out of the fray. Once the battle was over with, having faced this nightmare last time, Apple Bloom (after being woken up, then being asked by the Team) approached her Shadow (despite her sister's protests) and accepted it, after which it became a bennu bird with a blue aura; she has become a Persona-user. And then she fell faint, requiring her sister to carry her as the party then left the Dungeon. On the way out, they saw that the previously empty gallery now beheld a picture of Apple Bloom and her new Persona (named Islington), finally solving that particular mystery. The party eventually left, disbanded, and Apple Bloom was taken home.
    • The next day, Yu was visited by the CMC, where it was discovered that while Apple Bloom was able to summon her Persona card (behind her so it was within bucking range), breaking it invoked no Personanote . She wanted to know why, and so he and the CMC took a(nother) visit to the TV World, Apple Bloom jumping in first and passing through. Once there, upon Apple Bloom successfully summoning Islington this time, leaving her friends in awe, Yu got his answer; just like how his Team and S.E.E.S. (outside of Evokers) could not summon their Personas in the outside world prior to their ascension in the Pantheon, the same case applies for Apple Bloom herself.
    • And then Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle asked Yu if they can get Personas too. Despite him warning about the dangers, as well as the fact that they wouldn't be able to summon them outside the TV World anyway, they were resolute in their conviction, and didn't feel it was fair that only one of them had this power. Worried that they might just go anyway on their own if he refused, he agreed, but on a later date with the rest of the Team since even with how strong he is, he's not so overconfident that he thinks he can go through the other CMC's Dungeons with just himself and Apple Bloom (not even knowing what skills Islington has yet).
  • Over the course of three more trips to the TV World (two with the other CMC, and one with Princess Luna when she heard of these trips; check her profile for details on hers), the Investigation Team came to realize this was going to be a regular part of the Pantheon; a "Shadow confrontation/Persona acquisition" service that the Team has to be ready to meet should anyone ask them, though certain rules were eventually set. They eventually notified S.E.E.S./the Shadow Operatives of this, and let the other Persona-user teams know as well.
  • Fog blankets the Midnight Channel, clouding the vision of anyone attempting to look through it with normal eyes, and requiring specially made glasses created by Teddie to see through them (who now makes "guest glasses" for clients and tag-alongs). The climate also used to be oppressive and dangerous, rendering sick anybody who isn't mature enough to have a Shadow self. But the version in the Pantheon is merely bad for vision and ominous in terms of what it can conceal. It's also nonexistent in the Persona Gallery.
  • As it is, most every sapient deity in the Pantheon, regardless of whether or not they're artificially-made, has a Shadow and has them here, but it would take forever to list them all. Listing Personas, however, is more manageable.
  • The hallway that leads to the portal to any deity's Shadow Dungeon is filled with portraits depicting two figures each: a Pantheon deity, and their acquired Persona (if any; gaining Personas is not actually guaranteed here). It serves as an entrance-way for those who had passed the trials of facing themselves to be immortalized and be seen as an inspiration for those about to partake in their own trials. In part by Philemon, each new portrait appears after every successful Persona-acquisition, and the hall lengthens with each successful client. This includes those who haven't gone in with the Investigation Team. That said, "successful" here only covers the acceptance of one's Shadow.
  • Any non-Shadow who dies in the TV World will eventually have their body found hanging from a telephone line with no physical indication of death. They're still already on the way to revival in the House of Life and Death either way.
  • It is said that after the rise of Madoka Kaname, Witches tend to reside here, as Madoka separated the soul of the Puella Magi to come with her, and banish the dark side which would become Witches into this very place. Madoka claims a masked man gave her the idea, telling her that it'll be useful in case the Puella Magi that she saved would like to confront their darker self. Scholars are curious as to if this means that Witches can be transformed into something like a Persona via acceptance of one's flaws like a Shadow can and are petitioning Madoka for permission to test it and asking for volunteers. That said, the revelation that these Personas would only be summonable in the TV World lessened the eagerness to see results, but they were still there.
    • At first, some people wondered if Sayaka Miki's going to be the first, but others rebuffed that given that she's already able to summon the Witch part of her, so it wouldn't be necessary. Mami and Kyoko and Madoka herself are still options, though. That said, with Doppels from Kamihama City being a thing, there are those who wonder if those can serve as basis for Puella Magi Personas if they can't summon those Doppels in the Pantheon like Sayaka can.

  • Even if it is just a story, in light of a certain incident, the Investigation Team are wary of what might happen if Isaac interacts with the TV portal. Still, with everything he's been through, including the possibility that he has actually left his mortal coil, the Team wish to approach his TV World visit with caution should he ever decide to face the worst parts of himself once again.

With the ascension of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, and the existence of the Metaverse made known, just like with the Investigation Team, they have garnered interest from those who could not get Personas via the Midnight Channel, seeing the Metaverse as an alternative. Of course, given its nature, and because it can only be accessed though certain people, only few can be admitted.
