Welcome to the Trope Pantheons thread! Please read the rules:

    open/close all folders 

    Rules 
Rules. The following are not suggestions or tips, but things that have to be followed:
  • Gods can't be followers or high priests for obvious reasons.
  • When you suggest a God, please explain why they fit the trope. Not everyone is going to understand just "X should be the God of Y because they exemplify the trope" off the bat, especially if they're unfamiliar with the work.
  • No hype profiles, please.
    • So you ask, what exactly is 'hype profile'? It is a profile based on ongoing events that hasn't been around very long, but generates a lot of hype, possibly because of elements such as Wham Episode or Memetic Mutation or Large Ham or overall 'OMGAWESOME!!!' They're all not bad tropes, but building a portfolio solely for that is a bad idea, as they do not say a thing about representing the trope best (unless it's those trope concepts that they are trying to embody for a long time). You can see one if the profile is only showing off how awesome they are or suddenly pushing how 'significant' they are thanks to the just very recent events rather than respecting the longstanding good representations of the trope. And usually having... minimum portfolio or flavor texts and being a bit too generalized or self-contained to events from within their home series instead of interacting with other Pantheon members.
  • The Pantheon is not a mouthpiece for you to voice your opinions on certain characters. You may like certain characters more than others, but don't make the profiles for characters you like look like Character Shilling.
  • DO. NOT. put a link to these Pantheon pages into the main wiki page. The moment you want to add in a main Characters page that the character is a God of this trope, don't do it. If you see leftovers of this practice, do yourself a favor and delete it from that main page. This also goes to the Trivia page. The only exception to this rule is if a page in the Pantheon could be confused for a page in Main, like Good Colors, Evil Colors and Good & Evil Colors.
  • You must use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon, or reworking an existing deity (be it simply improving their existing profile or changing their title).
    • For new and reworked deities, 3 [tup] means the profile will have a one week waiting period.
    • For new and reworked deities, 4 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
    • 5 [tup] is an automatic ascension for new and reworked deities.
    • Speaking of reworks, for anyone that wants to improve such profiles, they have to review the current trope the character(s) has and see if it still holds up or if there is a better rep for their trope.
    • For adding new Treasures to the Treasures or new Dominions to the Dominions, the following rules apply:
      • For new Treasures or Dominions, 3 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
      • 4 [tup] is an automatic addition to the Treasures or Dominions.
  • Do not include fan reception in any profiles. It has nothing to do with the character themselves and will create unnecessary conflict.
  • Write a detailed explanation on why the character is the best candidate for deity of that trope. If people disagree with you, do not force it on the people.
  • Keep in mind that if you still want to try to find a trope for a particular character, you're only given three chances on such. If a suggestion goes past three possible tropes, then it will come off as shoehorning a character into the Pantheon just for the sake of that character to be there.
  • Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment ALSO applies here. Do not bring things that would incite fights, even if it is what's currently the hot topic and might be 'urgent'. For example, the political scene and some really bad politicians. We are not here to fight at each other, so don't suggest things that go to that direction.
  • Do not create a trope page for a story until the story is fully completed.
  • Don't repost a profile in the forums more than twice in a day if noticeable changes haven't been made in between. If a profile is posted a third time in a row without noticeable alterations, it will be downvoted. This is so spamming of no-effort profiles is less frequent and to prevent tropers from getting aggravated seeing the same profile over and over. The minimum acceptable change has to be a single flavour text.

    Instructions and Tips 
Here are some tips one should keep in mind when editing:
  • Please use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, or something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon. You can also get some assistance in the forum thread. Submissions that are added without discussion are likely to be deleted.
  • If the character you are about to add to a House already exists in another, make sure to mention that this god has spots in other houses as well.
  • When writing facts/trivia about gods, try not to contradict what has already been written elsewhere.
  • When writing down the name of a Theme Song, try to avoid calling it "Theme of God X" or "Theme of (Show where God X originates from)". If possible, try to find out if the song has an actual name.
  • When adding an image for your God, make sure that it is not too big unless you wish to write more about the god you have chosen.
  • If you feel the need to remove a god for some reason and replace him/her with another, please see what the other tropers think about this in the discussion thread before doing anything hasty. If you're lucky (and they're from the same franchise), maybe both of them can share the title "Gods of (Insert Trope Here)".
  • Certain tropes can have more than one God. It is not advisable, but it is not forbidden. Just ensure that this second God will bring in new flavor of the trope. If you have doubts on how to bring the other flavors, consult the Trope Pantheon Discussion forum. Case in point: In the original Greek Mythology (and later Roman Mythology), both Ares/Mars and Athena/Minerva share the title of 'God/Goddess of War', and even then, they differ in flavor: Ares is about brutal warfare, Athena is about war strategies and finesse, while Mars took up some of Athena's elements that he kinda differs out than Ares. If the original myth can do this, why the hell not for the Pantheon?
  • Be creative! If you need some time to work out your potential deity's profile, use the Pending Gods or Pending Gods 2 page to get help. Incomplete and/or low-quality entries are more likely to get deleted or replaced.
  • When writing about a God who just happens to be a person in real life, just try to be very careful about what you decide to say. See also the Rules section. Especially the 1st bullet point.
  • All deities should be sorted by their divine ranking. Put Overdeities on the top of the page and Quasideities on the bottom. Also be sure to add them in alphabetical order by their first/given name.
  • Occasionally there will be Gods that carry a title without a trope. This is not forbidden, but it's well advised not to abuse them. Aside from introducing too many niche concepts, there are still chances for new tropes related to your chosen deity's title to be launched through YKTTW...
    • Additionally however, the only house that a tropeless profile are wholly allowed is the House of Food. Mainly due to most food items lacking tropes, and adding tropes about said foodstuffs is slightly unecessary. However, the character being ascended for their choice of a food, or food-related thing must be a decently good representative of said item. IE: Their Trademark Favorite Food, or something that they're closely associated with In-Universe, or both (example: Gangplank and his oranges).
  • Maximum number of tropes what a god should have is three, but don't try to abuse that fact. If you need to use a second trope to specify a certain thing about their position, that can be excused.
  • Some series will eventually have greater representation in the Pantheon than others. This is unavoidable, but a little diversity helps, as well. Try to ensure that if you add a deity from a popular series, make sure that it's because they're a good representative for the trope in question, and not just because they're connected to another deity in their respective canon.
  • As far as deities from actual mythologies (Greco-Roman, Norse, Japanese, etc.) are concerned, try not to replicate the default myths about their characters and use a fictional counterpart instead. In other words, if you want to use the Greek/Roman god Ares/Mars, you can't add him as the "God of War", but you can use him as part of another trope as long as it's a different version of him. For example:
    • Zeus, while having elements of his persona from Classical Mythology, draws more from his portrayal in the God of War Series.
    • Thor and Loki's Pantheon portrayals are influenced heavily by their appearances in their Marvel Comics series.
    • Amaterasu is a woman in her Japanese mythology portrayal, but her Pantheon counterpart is the dog goddess from Ōkami.
  • Don't depend too much on the hype/meme train, don't just jump onto that train willy-nilly in order to put on some events or entry in the Pantheon. It might not last very long or represent the trope best. This is Trope Pantheons, not Trope Hype Train!
  • Unless the character proposed is specifically from the Abridged version, the character should represent the tropes in their canon selves. If they also happen to possess the trait of the Abridged self, good! But otherwise, get the abridged stuff onto just the flavor texts.
  • To prevent any surprising need to rework profiles due to new development, please restrain from ascending gods from a series before the thing is either released or for longer-running series, there is a good enough of a break from story. This also applies to already existing series if there is a new thing coming out.
  • Please be sure to ask in the discussion about what you want to work before making the profile. This is done to see if your proposal is the best representative and so, in case your profile is turned down, you don't waste time writing something that others might not find suitable.
    • In the same vein, if you adopt a profile from another troper, it is recommended that you make an announcement that you have done so on the discussion thread. More often than not, a trope that was reserved for something was given away to someone else.
  • It is much more recommended to word the title like "God of X" instead of "The God that Xs". This will give off the vibe the God actually ruled over that trope instead of just 'did X', giving more credentials to how it's the best example of the trope.

    Divine Ranking System 
  • Rank: This can range from Quasideity, Demigod, Lesser God, Intermediate God, Greater God, to Overdeity, based on representation of power.
    • Overdeity: Omnipotent-level Reality Warpers capable of manipulating the entire universe (or at least the world) at will. Within their own universe they are believed to be omnipotent, or at least impossible-to-completely-destroy embodiments or concepts.
    • Greater Gods: High-level Reality Warpers and that are extremely powerful (capable of destroying or changing anywhere from a large city to a planet at will) and very strong non-reality warpers capable of doing the same thing.
    • Intermediate Gods: Deities at this level are capable of strong but specialized powers such as hydrokinesis, pyrokinesis, etc. without major drawbacks and low level Reality Warpers capable of affecting their immediate area at will.
    • Lesser Gods: Capable of highly specific or little power on their own, or suffer from Power at a Price. However, they may be able to ruthlessly exploit their power or combine it with just being badass enough to make up for it.
    • Demigods: Basically the Badass Normals of the pantheon, making up for their lack of abilities with strength, strategy, and/or planning.
    • Quasideities: Any otherwise normal human, human equivalent, or below without any special powers or training will fall here.

    Deity Template 
Template for adding a new deity:

God X, God/dess of (Insert Trope Here) (Alternate names/Nicknames, Fan Nickname)

  • An image, if possible. Please use official art or a screenshot for a picture.
  • Potential House:
  • Rank: This can range from Quasideity, Demigod, Lesser God, Intermediate God, Greater God, to Overdeity. This doesn't always have to be a representation of power, but it can also represent influence in the Pantheon.
  • Symbol: An image or icon used to represent the deity.
  • Theme Song: Song that usually is used in affiliation with the character. If the deity is a musician, this will most likely be their Signature Song. If possible, give a link for reference, preferably on YouTube.
  • Alignment: Good, evil, neutral etc. Forget about The Great Character Alignment Debate here, the Pantheon is one of the few places where you can assign Dungeons & Dragons alignment to characters that don't have alignment system. After all, the Pantheon is based on D&D.
  • Gender: For Pokémon deities only. Defines the gender of the Pokémon; if genderless, it instead defines what gender they identify as.
  • Ability: Provides the Pokémon's ability. If they can Mega Evolve, the new ability is listed as well.
  • Moves: Defines the four moves used by a Pokémon. A Z-Move may also be listed.
  • Portfolio: Tropes associated with the character.
  • Domains: Things that the character has influence over.
  • Herald: Non-ascended loyal character that is from the same series as the ascended character.
  • High Priest: Non-ascended like heralds, but not from the same series, and can serve as a worthy replacement in case something would happen. They can be served as part-time workers in case the originals are busy with some jobs. Co-Godhood is accepted depending on the approval of the originals, usually if the co-deity is from the same series.
  • Followers: Non-ascended characters that are not part of the Pantheon, but would probably worship this character by the fact that they share the ascended character's trope.
  • Allies: Members of the Pantheon that are allies.
  • Rivals: Members of the Pantheon that are rivals.
  • Enemies: Members of the Pantheon that are foes.
  • Additional Character Relationships: Members of the Pantheon that have various relationships (examples include Enemy Mine, Vitriolic Best Buds, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, Headbutting Heroes, Friendly Enemy, Friendly Rival, Just Friends, etc.) other than allies, rivals, or enemies.
  • Partner: Defines a partnership with an ascended deity and Pokémon.
  • Respected by/Respects: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon respect or are respected by.
  • Pitied by/Pities: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon feel pity for or find pitiable.
  • Opposed by/Opposes: Not necessarily the same as "Enemies", but this is used for any deity whom the members of the Pantheon directly opposes or is opposed by, regardless of alignment.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sometimes, the Deities argue over specific themes and philosophies.
  • Add the Intro. The intro is made up of two trivia, the Ascension Text (or just the Ascension) and The Bio. Both are necessary, but which order you use for them may vary depending on the profile in question. It may be better for one profile to have The Bio first and the Ascension second or vice-versa, although for the most part the order is irrelevant:
    • The Ascension Text: This the story of how the character got into the Pantheon and/or was ascended. There are many ways for this to happen. They may be tricked into it or have simply wandered into the Pantheon, they may have had an already ascended character bring them in, they may already be in the Pantheon (via being another deity's Herald or sharing a trope) and got "promoted", or some combination of the above. Anything is possible in the Pantheon, so use your imagination, but try to incorporate their trope into the story, if possible.
    • The Bio: A brief synopsis on the character's backstory. No need for the character's entire life/production history, but just give enough that those who don't know the character can get an idea of how the character works.
  • Now add some random trivia/facts about events/alignments/moments/fights/friendships/relations etc.
  • And some more trivia/facts.
  • And a couple of more.

Pantheon.Weapons is too long. I think it should be split into something like Blades/Guns/etc.

So now it leads to a 'redirect' to this topic?

Hm... the old discussions are now unaccessible. Is there any way we can access it again for reference? Like... a series of screenshots or archive (that can't be edited)?

Totally cool with this, though.

Hannibal Lecture should be in the house of crime if he's the god of serial killers, not mentalism. If he was going to be in mentalism shouldn't he be the god of Hannibal Lectures or something? I've got a lot of ideas for this game...

There should be an official deity for Christ symbolism

@Jinxmenow, if anything, it's more of a mass crossover fic made exclusively by this wiki than a forum game, but you can call it such if you insist: Forum games meet Fanfic

I hope I'm not being rude here.

Weapons is too long. I think it should be split into something like Blades/Guns/etc.

That is a good idea... except that it probably would require multiple splits just in case. I mean, after blades and guns, we have every other misc. weapons.

Though speaking of House of Weapons, why is Duke Nukem the God of Nukes? Like, does he actually use nuclear weaponry?

For starters in splitting weaponry, I suggest not on special weapons but... divide it to the type of weapons. We can go for 'Slashing/Piercing' weapons, which deals with the likes of swords, axes, spears, etc, and the other one being for 'Blunt' weapons, dealing with clubs, hammers, etc. And another one, "Ranged", dealing with Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Ranged weaponry from bows, guns, etc. Lastly, 'Hybrid', for things that just don't fit.

In a way, this also pays homage to some D&D elements that there are 'blunt weapons', etc.

I think we also need one for "Weapon Wielding" as the House of Weapons also have gods what specialize on how to wield weapons and combat styles (Zoro, Gilgamesh, Link, Mega Man, Jackie Chan ect.)

Changing topic a bit, I don't think we have a god of genuine Cloud Cuckoolanders around.

In that case, I nominate Mako Mankanshoku. That girl is completely, completely off her gourd.

In regards to the weapons split, I say let's go slowly first and see what happens. I agree with the original suggestion but recommend instead spliting into melee weapons and ranged weapons.

Have a new idea. Still prototype and don't know which house this would go. Black Comedy nomination.

Mr. Slave God of Ass Shove

  • Rank: Lesser God
  • Symbol: His leather hat.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ass Shove, Only Sane Man, Hard Gay, Friend to All Children, Black Comedy, Papa Wolf
  • Domains: Strength, Depravity, Suffering
  • Allies: Anarchy Stocking, Slaanesh, Mr. Garrison (sometimes), Eric Cartman, Kenny, most child deities in general.
  • Enemies: The entire House of Beasts, Judge Frollo, Seymour, Mr. Garrison (sometimes), Ghestis, Sophia Lamb, Teppei Houjou.
  • Clenched Teeth Team Work: Kanji Tatsuni
  • Ascended after the "Paris Hilton" incident (which was in response to her corrupting the town's children), a moment which brought many shocked lulz pantheon wide.
  • His rear is a dungeon of horrors haunted by the spirits of The Frog King, Sparrow Prince, and the Katatafish. Has a nuclear device inside as well.
  • Knowledge of an encounter with Lemmiwinks earned Mr. Slave the emnity of the entire House of Beasts, especially the smaller members who are terrified of him.
  • Mr. Slave's love of children is well known. It came as no surprise that he responded to one of Teppei Houjou's attempts to abuse Satako with an encore of his battle with Paris Hilton 2.0. The club to this day doesn't know whether to laugh or be horrified.

Magnum, I'm sorry, but that is an example of just 'bare and bone' proposal. You should spice up the flavors more, add portfolios, add flavor texts, etc.

If we were going to have a god of cloud cookoo land I would nominate Delirious of ROH/Chikara or Lufisto of WSU/Shimmer. You don't even have to hear Delirious talk (though it helps), just looking at him show's he's off center and Lufisto's manager is a doll.

But anyway, is anyone in opposition to my proposal to revise and or move Hannibal Lecter in regards to his placement in Mentalism?

I think he would be removed. Though I noticed that he is also in the House of Food as the god of Humanitarians, so whenever he should drop one of the titles or would he have two positions is in question.

My idea is (if he is to stay in the house of mentalism) to change his position to Hannibal Lectures and put him in the house of crime as a Serial Killer, so with humanitarian I guess he will have three positions, unless someone displaces him from one of them.

Okay, Hannibal is now the god of ruining interrogations in mentalism.

I thought Aslan was the god of Christ Symbolism, though I could think of some different ones if he already has a position.edit: wait, I thought you meant Christal Dragon Jesus or Messianic Archetype, not Creepy crosses.

So, I was looking and notice we didn't have anyone in the position of badass army, so I decided to work on this, let me know what you guys think (and be careful of spoilers)

The Wonderful 101, Gods of the Badass Army (CENTINALS special protectors)

  • Theme Song: The Won-stoppable Wonderful 101
  • Rank: Alone; just under demigod. Ten or more; Lesser Gods. All 101; Intermediate Gods. When suited up in Platinum Robo; just under greater God. When Platinum Robo is in Asuran mode and the Guyzoch join in, Overdiety.
  • Symbol: The stylized W emblemized on every CENTINAL suit.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good.
  • Portfolio: Badass Army, Sentai, Power Fist, BFS, Sniper Rifle, Whip It Good, Drop the Hammer, Wolverine Claws, Throw Down the Bomblet, Time Stands Still, Eye Beams, Multinational Team.
  • Domains: Armies, Friendship, Teamwork (sometimes not flawless), combining into weapons using your teammates, protectors of the innocent and the Earth.
  • Followers:
  • Allies: Most good gods, especially other Sentai teams and team members, CENTINAL command, Immorta and the Guyzoch space pirates.
  • Enemies: The GEATHJERK federation, most evil gods; especially the ones that harm innocents or wish to destroy the Earth.
  • Rivals to: Prince Vorkken and his Guyzoch space pirates.
  • Made up of 100 of Earth's finest (and trainee Lucah Alan Smithee), the Wonderful 101 (pronounced "One-oh-One") harness the power of Unite Morph to fight against evil and protect the innocent. since there "are" 101 of them, it would be far too much information to name them all off, but the main colors are worth mentioning;
  • Ascended after destroying the GEATHJERK leader Jerghinga in an epic clash that left the heavens shaking and saving the Earth from his armada by wiping out millions of his battleships in the span of a minute.
  • They often take a long time to get to their full power, as agents based all over the globe means the full 101 won't be gathered right off the bat, but when they are they can make Unite Morphs the size of a skyscraper that can destroy even the strongest foe.
  • When using platinum Robo, the size and power of their unite Morphs increase drastically, when their rivals the Guyzoch lend them their power, they can create a unite morph 200+ members strong, a size so massive that it could cleave an average sized planet in two.
  • Bayonetta was spotted in formation with them during one of their drills. When asked, she said, "What, a girl can't play some games now and again?" Green was noted as saying, "I wondered where Pink learned how to stretch like that."

Whew, there's my base for that, I'd go ahead and post it up since we don't have any gods of Badass Army to replace, but I have no idea what page it would go on (my first though would be heroes, but ehhhh). Anyone can feel free to go ahead and make whatever adjustment they want and post it up for me if they find a good place, I don't mind at all
