Trope Pantheons Discussion

Go To

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.

    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 
  • 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.

Oshawott, God of Playful Otters (the Sea Otter Pokémon, Wotter/Derpderp/Snowoobie/Vampijumaru )

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/501oshawott.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: its Scalchop
  • [tup]s: 3(Eclipse MT, Bazzardreturns,Muundeis)
  • Alignment: True Neutral, but can be a little Chaotic Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Torrent
  • Moveset: Razor Shell, Aqua Jet, Hydro Pump, Swords Dance
  • Portfolio: Playful Otter,Uses it's shell as a weapon, Ridiculously Cute Critter, Youthful Freckles, Evolution line based on samurai
  • Domains: Otters, Seashells, Playfulness, Water
  • Guardian: Samurott
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, N, Popplio ,Kingdra, Lapras ,Candice White, Emmet & Ma Otter, Samurai Jack,Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, the Madagascar Penguins , Chuggaaconroy
  • Enemies: Team Rocket,Giovanni, Ghetsis Harmonia, Cyrus, Lysandre, Hunter J, Toon Patrol, Mori Motonari , Oda Nobunaga, The Bittercold
  • Opposes: Grass and Electricity users (excluding Pikachu)
  • Like Popplio, Oshawott is a starter Pokemon in the pantheon who is at it's first stage of evolution, but whose final stage acts as his guardian. Also like Popplio, Oshawott was initially hated for being goofy looking, but then ate their words when he would evolve into a cool Samurai.
  • Considering he would evolve into a samurai-like pokemon and has Samurott acting as his guardian, he gets along well with other good-aligned samurai. They often allow him to copy their sword moves because they find it cute to watch him try and copy the movements of sword with a shell, even Samurai Jack considers it to charming despite his stoic nature.
  • Became partners with Chosokabe Motochika considering he's already a little familiar with him (albeit he looked a little different.) . The two like to practice and ride on Motochika's boat. And with him being Motochika's partner, he became enemies with Mori Montonari and Oda Nobunaga, especially because he considers the two examples of what not strive for in samurai.
  • Gets along well with the Madagascar penguin's as he kind of reminds them of their friend Marlene from the zoo. (albeit he's more energetic and child-like).
  • Likes to spend time with Emmet & Ma Otter considering they're the only other otters in the pantheon. They're currently trying to find him something to play in the band ( the closets so far is getting him to bang his scalchop on different surfaces).
  • Has a bone to pick with the Toon Patrol considering they're both part of the weasel family. While, Oshawott is playful and friendly, the Toon Patrol are nasty and cruel. Oshawott's first instinct whenever sees any of them is to fight them.
  • Before Oshawott joined the pantheon, Chuggaaconroy used one during his let's play of Pokémon Black and White. Considering they were both 'chosen last during gym class', he became allies with him.
  • Due to his name sounding similar to 'ocelot', some have given him the the nickname Revolver Oshawott. Oshawott really doesn't know what to make of him and considers him and his actions confusing.

Done with Oshawott, just need one more [tup]

Repost of this profile I borrowed from Clovis: Minerva McGonagall, Goddess of Stern Teachers

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/minerva_mcgonagall.png
  • Proposed House: School
  • Symbol: The Gryffindor crest
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral, at times Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Stern Teacher, Badass Teacher Who's Very Protective of Her Students, Old Master Who Holds Well in a Fight, Badass Bookworm, Authority Equals Asskicking, Animagus
  • Domains: Teaching, Respect, Toughness
  • Superior: J.K. Rowling
  • Allies: All the Hogwarts staff and students (specially Gryffindors), Athena, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Matilda Wormwood
  • Enemies: Lord Voldemort, Dolores Umbridge, Agatha Trunchbull
  • Ascended in recognition of all her good service to all groups possible - Hogwarts, the Order of the Phoenix, the main trio (Harry, Ron and Hermione) - while continuing to be a no non-sense professor that would both recognize good students and remove points from felonies.
  • Hangs out with her two predecessors as Hogwarts Headmaster, Dumbledore and Snape - the latter, even if she had her share of conflict with him in the past. She is also on amicable terms with Slughorn, even if he headed the rival Slytherin house, and Minerva looks down on him giving preferential treatment to students out of self-interest.
  • Basically everyone in the House of Magic wants to schedule classes with her. McGonagall's standout talent is Transfiguration, which she taught at Hogwarts, and makes her highly skilled in giving life to inanimate objects, specially those who can serve as makeshift warriors and guards.
  • Has gained the godly support of the goddess Athena, who considered McGonagall more than worthy of having her Roman name. Upon their first meeting, for some reason Athena felt the teacher looked like the nymph Thetis.
  • She has gotten along with the two best known Jedi "teachers", whose Force powers even resemble some magic spells: Obi-Wan, who is also a stoic, no non-sense mentor; and Yoda, who for being quirky and small reminds Minerva of professor Flitwick.
  • Was livid upon meeting Umbridge again, given Minerva was a fierce opposer of Dolores' time at Hogwarts, making the usually law-enforcing teacher more than willing to break rules only to make the "High Inquisitor" miserable.
  • Due to Minerva not being favorable to Divination - though she begrudingly helped Sybill Trelawney after Umbridge unceremoniously and cruelly sacked her - she is not well liked by those in the house of Prophecy.
  • Some of the most scholarly deities laugh behind her back at how "McGonagall" is taken from one of the worst poets ever.
  • Minerva grew an instant dislike for Agatha Trunchbull, an evil teacher who is as bad as Umbridge, if not worse for physical abuse. Given Matilda stood up to Trunchbull, she instantly got McGonagall's approval, and she was intrigued that she has excellent intelligence for someone of her age, along with psychic powers comparable to a wizard with much training in Spells.
  • Given she can turn into a cat, Minerva has at times hid in the House of Felines, and some of deities there tried to befriend her. Given she can't speak as a cat, it's mostly fruitless.

Kim Wu, Goddess of the Rebellious Spirit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_7676.png
  • Potential House: Personality (Misc)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Dragon Head.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Rebellious Spirit, Tried to Defy Fate Until She Becomes the The Chosen One, Nunchucks, Being an Action Fashionista, Fiery Redheads, Stockings, Being Inspired in Bruce Lee.
  • Domains: Chaos, Good, Repose, Combat
  • Superior: Bruce Lee.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Gargos, ARIA, Fulgore, Sadira, Mira Fallegeros, Spinal, Riptor.
  • Admired by: Maximilian Christiansen.
  • Respected by: Ayane
  • Six months ago, if she thought she was fated to save the world, she could give them a slap in the face and picking fate the middle finger. Turns out that Kim Wu, a martial artist and design student in college, is now ascended in the Pantheon as a demon butt kicker. That and for having a 'freaking dragon'.
    • Is naturally more aligned with Jago and his team of heroes than ARIA and Ultratech, but her true grudge is with Gargos. She has been instructed by her dragon companion to prevent his arrival on her world and she would do everything it takes to make sure he stays in his own dimension. It is good for her that she found many allies in her quest, not just in her world but also in the Pantheon.
  • She speaks both Korean and Chinese, given her ancestry. That has been under debate. She first claimed to be Korean, but then switched over to Chinese in her latest appearance. It could mean that she shares ancestry from both countries, but she hasn't clarified how.
  • Some can say that she got much of her personality from a certain vampire slayer. Kim sees this as an honor; she was a fan of Buffy's style ever since she heard of her. The slayer was more than happy to join her quest in vanquishing Gargos.
  • Once when she was exploring a sewer, she stumbled upon another creature using nunchucks. Only that he was a turtle. Excited about meeting another human with his own weapon, the turtle challenged her to a dance fight off. Impressed with her skills after the bout, he invited her to his lair. After a few hours playing video games, his brothers found out about it. While they couldn't allow Kim Wu to stay for long, the other ninja turtles allowed her to keep the knowledge of their lair. They also considered to help her out as they have dealt with interdimensional conquerors as well.
  • While Kim has been around for far longer, she has taken Cassie Cage as her rivals in the ever growing feud between Earthrealm and her own. Though in this case they are more likely friends than not. They also share stories about having to deal with their lazy friends and bossing them around. And yet they admit that they do need them when it comes to diplomacy.
  • Was considered for the title Action Fashionista before Athena took it for herself. There's no animosity from her for that; she knows good talent when she sees it. She also likes how Athena changes her outfits with each game she appears in.
  • While not his favorite Killer Instinct character, Max was glad to have her back in some form. And since he played a part in bringing her back to relevance, Kim is glad to have him in the Pantheon. Max simply doesn't mention the time he kicked her ass with Gargos.
  • Comes from a long of disciples of Bruce Lee. Among them is Fei Long, whom she trains with often. But the bulk of her admiration comes from Bruce Lee himself. He was intrigued with her abilities and is willing to help her hone in those powers.
  • While training in the House of Combat, she was under attack by Ayane. The ninja suspected that Kim Wu may declare her loyalty to her rival Kasumi. After a brief skirmish Kim clarified she had no idea about the conflict. Already impressed with the fight, Ayane made a rare compliment on someone, specifically for managing to defeat Gargos. When the Goddess of Spinning Attacks left, Kim was left scratching her head over what other sort of allegiances she may have to deal with.
    • Things went much better with Ryu. While she was clearly outmatched, he was more friendly towards her. He also gave her his own nun-chucks to test out.

Makoto, Goddess of Martial Arts Dojo Heirs (MaKOto)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makoto_3.jpg
  • Potential House: Combat Other
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her yellow hachimaki
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Glacier Waif Bokukko , Cute Bruiser Combat Pragmatist, Does Not Like Shoes, Scarf Of Asskicking, so Hot-Blooded she Turns Red, Perpetual Frowner, Tomboy
  • Domains: Good, Strength, Combat, Solitude
  • Allies: Elena, Makoto Nanaya
  • Rivals: Ibuki, Fei Long, Yun Lee, Fiona Mayfield, Dan Hibiki
  • Enemies: Abigail
  • Admires: Ryu
  • It was at a young age that Makoto inherited her own dojo due to the death of her father. She has been hard at work promoting her dojo ever since. It just so happened that she got the attention of several deities in the Pantheon. Eventually, Makoto was allowed to set up a branch of her dojo in the Pantheon. Over time the dojo became her temple and Makoto became a goddess herself.
    • Her first order of business? Go straight to Ibuki and challenge her to a duel to settle their rivalry once and for all. The following battle destroyed a lot of property that day but did not decide a winner. Even then, the two are on friendly terms. Sure they love to fight each other, but they are just as likely to help each other when one needs help.
    • Did not forget about Fei Long, who has been at the Pantheon far longer than she has. She knows that having a karate and Jeet Kune Do practitioner fight it out would increase awareness for her. Fei Long has declined the offer, wanting to focus on her movie career. That hasn't stopped her from pursuing him.
    • Has not forgotten the time when she challenged Yun to a game of Roshambo. Both are known for using Groin Attacks on their opponents. It was only natural that this would lead to a confrontation. Both are looking forward to deciding the victor once and for all.
    • Dan saw her ascension as the perfect opportunity to get back at her for beating him the first time she demolished him in combat. This time he put himself on a training regiment to get stronger over time.
    • Much of her motivation about fighting comes from Ryu. She has come to adore the world warrior with a passion. She hopes to set up a match with him both to show him what she has learned as well as to promote her dojo.
    • If it was an earlier time, she would have groaned at the prospect of Elena in the Pantheon. The happy-go-lucky capoeira fighter seemed like the polar opposite to her hard hitting no-nonsense fighting style. Yet the Kenyan charm grew on her, eventually letting Makoto call her a friend.
  • Many agree she is pound-for-pound the hardest hitting fighter in her world. What's worse, she has no qualms about where to land them. She is just at likely to punch you in the face as she is while you are on the ground or even in the groin.
    • Her immense striking power increases further when she gets angry. When that happens, her entire body turns red in rage. In this mode, she can turn any opponent into a pile of tenderized pulp in mere seconds. Yet there happened to be someone else who is even more feared in that regard. Makoto was surprised to find the title taken by none other than Mad Gear gang member Abigail. When Makoto challenged him to a fight, she was shocked to see him match her in strength if not more. Their first outing was a draw, but she is hopeful to get a second shot against the behemoth.
  • Is one of the smallest competitors in the Street Fighter tournament, yet always makes sure to take her sweet time when approaching her opponent. That's because she prefers to surprise her opponents with quick movements. She shares a lot in common with Fiona Mayfield in that regard and sees her as a rival to test her strength against.
  • Believe it or not... Makoto is actually a pretty good carpenter and can be seen in the House of Craft building wooden structures. It helps that her strength can bust through wood in order to break it down.
  • While she is by no means related to the squirrel beastly known as Makoto, no one can deny that they both love to punch people in the face. The karate master was disgusted that someone so strong had to deal with prejudice all the time. She subsequently invited her namesake for a charity bout. It was an all out brawl that trashed the place and sent both flying through the roof at one point. Yet both were respectful towards each other afterwards.

[up][up] [tup]Minerva Mc Gonagall, and That's No Moon! is taken by SCP- 169. Why do we want Galactus to keep planet eater since it's aperently no longer applicable?

In the reworks forum, TPPR10 posted a rework for Cirno that had enough votes to ascend, but nothing. This is at least the third time they've put them up for vote but didn't ascend them even after getting enough votes or time to ascend. I've [tup] them whenever it was posted and PM'd them about this, all of which were ignored, this is getting annoying. Anything to do about this?

Oh it's my birthday, so there's that.

@ Ferot: Happy birthday

Anything more I need to add to Lurantis, or is she good to go?

Lurantis, Goddess of Pretending To Be What You Are (The Bloom Sickle Pokemon)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/754lurantis.png
  • Votes: 1(fasoman1996)
  • House: Disguises (House of Costumes)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her blades, glowing like the sun, or the Grassium-Z
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Gender: Female
  • Ability: Leaf Guard
  • Moveset: Solar Blade, Leaf Blade, X-Scissor, Ingrain
    • Z-Move: Bloom Doom
  • Portfolio: Slaying Mantis and Man-Eating Plant, A Plant Pretending To Be A Mantis That Pretends To Be A Plant, One Of The Totem Challenges, Blade Below the Shoulder, Glacier Waif, Powered By The Sun, Only Pokemon Who Can Learn Solar Blade, Green Thumb, The Fighting Narcissist
  • Domains: Plants, Mantids, Mimicry, Solar Power, Blades
  • High Priest: Barrage
  • Allies:
  • On speaking terms with: Pamela Isley and Petey Pirahna
  • Enemies: Evil Pokemon trainers like Team Rocket, Hunter J and Ghetsis Harmonia, The Grand Duke of Owls, Queen Sectonia, Chernabog, Zs'skayr, Nightmare Moon, Mr Burns, Hexxus, Exdeath, Mordremoth
  • Avoids: The House of Birds and Fire & Electricity
  • Scares: Misty
  • Lurantis is the evolution of Fomantis, and known as the Bloom Sickle Pokemon. Like Sudowoodo, it is pretending to be something it's not-an orchid mantis. In reality it is based on an orchid flower, which oddly enough is the very plant orchid mantises pretend to be. So it's pretending to be something that pretends to be what it already is.
  • The Lurantis in the pantheon is in fact the very same Totem Lurantis of Mallow's trial, in the same vein as the pantheon's Wishiwashi. Her native home of Lush Jungle and Grass typing makes her more comfortable in the House of Plants than her own house, though. She's chosen to become partners with Yuri the Fusion Duelist, as they share some mutual allies and enemies, and she reminds her of the Predaplants.
  • Gets along with any of her fellow Pokemon in the House of Plants, except Gourgeist for being an asshole. A lot of non-Pokemon there thought she was an actual bug, such as Treebeard. She thought it was a fair mistake since she mistook him for a Trevenant. Lurantis respects the ent for being a guardian of forests and jungles like the ones she lives in.
  • Easy going enough that she gets along with any plant in her house. She even gets along with Poison Ivy and Petey Pirahna, though doesn't agree with their villainous paths. However she can't tolerate Exdeath for being an Omnicidal Maniac of a tree. Or Mordremoth, who'd rather have the jungle to herself. She doesn't like Mr Burns either since he wants to use the House of Plants as dumping ground for his radioactive waste, or Hexxus for wanting to replace it with shopping malls.
  • Misty is creeped out by Lurantis. Sure, Lurantis isn't a Bug type but she looks like a giant praying mantis(even more so as she's a Totem Pokemon) and that's scary enough for her. Being Grass type makes it worse because of the Bloom Sickle's type advantage against her favorite type, Water type Pokemon. Scyther seems to be get along with her even if she isn't a true Bug type. Some in the House of Insects like to ship the two together.
  • When slashing at her enemies, Lurantis looks like she's dancing. Lurantis is considered the most elegant Grass type Pokemon, and she likes to show it off to other plants and bugs. Most in the House of Insects think she's a Bug type, so she likes to claim she's the most elegant insect as well. Queen Sectonia doesn't take kindly to a faux-insect claiming such, and wants her to bug off. Mothra came to her defense and reminded her that she'll always have a place in her house.
  • The signature move of Lurantis is Solar Blade, a physically-oriented Solar Beam that gathers sunlight to unleash as a blade through its scythes. As this move doesn't require charge time in strong sunlight, Lurantis tends to work with those who can provide it. That's why originally she called upon Castform, who fortunately for her was in the pantheon. She's aware there's a certain irony in it given Sunny Day boosts Fire type attacks, her weakness.
  • Gravitates towards any deity relating to the sun, or the light-related Ezalor(so long as they aren't evil) since it lets her immediately use her Solar Blade. That, and as a orchid flower/orchid mantis she prefers the sun. She does not take kindly to gods who wish to block out the sun forever, and in spite of his issues with birds is perfectly willing to work with Chanticleer so the sun will always shine. And like every other Pokemon, she opposes Ghetsis, Giovanni's forces and Hunter J.
  • Like Durant, some have criticized her pretending to be a bug(that pretends to a plant) as a poor method of disguise. Sure she avoids other bugs nibbling on her, but bugs are just as vulnerable to Fire and Flying types. She tries to avoid those houses, particularly Ragnaros as he still treats her as one of many INSECTS!!! he wants to burn. She's willing to stand up for Durant to those that call his steel armor stupid against Heatmor.

okay, for my Mokuba profile I need to mention on how he much meaner and crueler in the beginning of the manga compared to the second anime, but to do that I need to add to Seto's profile that he was straight up evil and actually subjected Mokuba to a penalty game for losing in Death-T (The manga is the timeline were Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions takes place), yet still decided to stick by Seto even after that (I mean if my sibling did something like that, I'd never forgive them, family or not).

@ RJ: Theres still the issue of "Queen Sectonia doesn't take kindly to a faux-insect claiming such, and wants her to bug off. Queen Sectonia came to her defense and reminded her that she'll always have a place in her house." Is that supoosed to be Mothra defending Lurantis or?
