I noticed that Noob Saibot has THREE tropes on him: Paint It Black, Fatality and Unfortunate Names. Should that be split? I say he should just keep Fatality since he was responsible with the creation of the ESRB rating.

Unfortunate Names could be taken by anyone, but I'm not sure. My choices tends to have their names changed to 'rectify':

Mokuba Kaiba, God of Big Brother Worship

I've been thinking that deities should only have one tropes in their title, unless it ties into the first one, what do you guys think?

Also can someone do his reaction to the The Friendship Asylum, because I'm lost on the whole thing, sandbox is open or you can just message me the part. Please I need someone to work on it because I got lost on it.

Does anyone have an idea for Gigantic Adults, Tiny Babies?

No-[tup]s Mode

The Chosen One, God of Unrealistic Martial Arts
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His… gopher-chucks
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, but can also be Chaotic Stupid at times
  • Portfolio: Hilariously Unrealistic Martial Arts, The Chosen One, Raised By Various Desert Animals, Mighty Whitey [[ Despite Asian Parents]], Narm Charm, So Bad, It's Good, Funny Bruce Lee Noises, Gopher Chucks, Affectionate Parody to low-budget Kung Fu films, It Makes Sense in Contextactually, nothing makes any sense at all
  • Domain(s): Martial Arts (Spoofed), Destiny, Slapstick
  • Herald: Tonguey (his tongue), Dog (his pet dog)
  • High Priest:
  • Followers:
  • Relationships with Other Pantheon Deities (only include those who are already on one of the actual pages, and not here in this sandbox)
  • Allies: Po
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: All other (serious) martial artists
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: All killers ("killing is badong!")
  • 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.
  • Respected by/Respects:
  • Pitied by/Pities:
  • Distrusts: Aliens, particularly those who are French
  • Opposed by: All Cows And Whales, Tauros
  • Conflicting Opinion:
  • Martial arts are regarded as a perfect fighting style when facing an opponent without resorting to weapons, and are seen as a great tool to develop one’s own character. Some characters take them to new levels, but are still serious enough to be forgiven. And then there’s this guy, who purposefully defy all laws of martial arts and make his fighting style really… wacko, to say the least.
  • As stated, his fighting style and his irresponsible demeanor gets him mixed reactions from most of the martial artist deities out there.
  • At least he and Po can relate to each other in one thing.
  • He doesn’t have a name, he’s only called the Chosen One. Why? Because there’s a face on his tongue, and his name is Tonguey.
  • Owns a classic red convertible
  • He has gopher-chucks, which are naturally made of gophers with a rope tied between them. Understandably, Chip and Dale and some other mouse-related deities are very annoyed at his reckless handling of the gophers, not that he (or the gophers used) cares though.
  • No (ascended) martial arts master worth their salt would ever consider training anybody incorrectly. Except some real life masters really do that for students they deem unworthy. They do admit to toughening up the practicioners' skin (though not to the extent of using mercury from a thermometer).
  • Apparently, his story is akin to an Abridged Series long before LittleKuriboh created Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series.
  • Simba doesn't believe for a second that his father showed up to guide the Chosen One, despite the "martial artist" saying so. And with Mufasa himself missing, there's no way to (dis)prove it.
  • For some explicable reason, while wandering in the House of Beasts, something about the Chosen One peeved Miltank something fierce and she engaged him in battle. And unlike Moon Yuu, she was dangerously competent. And she got really furious once he grabbed her teats (of course, she smacked his hands off when he did that).
    • And it was around that time that Tauros was about to pay her a visit, and seeing the Chosen One do that (well, fighting Miltank at all) turned him furious too, and he shortly joined the fray. The two Pokémon shortly double-teamed him, but the Chosen One was not through. (Un)fortunately, everyone else intervened and separated the three (well, they kept the two Pokémon close) and a restraining order has been placed on the Chosen One to make sure this doesn't happen again (despite Miltank being the instigator).
  • (something about Miss Piggy once r-lock successfully reworks the Muppets)

So, you guys think giving G Giving Someone the Pointer Finger would be ok? He does that a lot, as a reference to Uncle Sam. There is also Uncle Sam Wants You but i'm not sure if that is allowed Of course, i give him a few weeks. There is also the fact that he is a...mysterious fellow to begin with.

Also, i might be dropping Necalli. If anyone wants to take him just PM me.

It's a New Day, yes it is!

Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, Divine Celebrity Fanboys (Big E: Big E. Langston, Ettore Ewen, Kofi: Kofi Nahaje Kingston/Sarkodie-Mensah, Xavier Woods: Austin Watson, Austin Creed, Consequences Creed/Rashid Lucius Creed)
Left to right: Xavier Woods, Big E, Kofi Kingston. Next to Xavier, Francesca, the trombone.
  • Potential House: House of Popularity, Fanbase
  • [tup]s: 1 (Muundeis)
  • Theme: "New Day, New Way" (together), "Somebody Call My Momma" (Xavier Woods), "I Need Five" (Big E), "SOS" (Kofi Kingston)
  • Symbol: Francesca the Trombone topped with a unicorn horn. Alternatively a box of Booty-Os cerealnote 
  • Lesser Gods
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Chaotic Neutral as a Heel)
  • Domains: Wrestling, Fanboys, Gaming, Trios, Fun, Optimism
  • Portfolio:
  • Fans of: Gods hailing from Dragonball, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, My Little Pony...let's just say they are fans of a lot of things.
  • Allies: Every good-aligned wrestler out there and most gods in the House of Happiness and Friendship, the Avatars of Friendship (Gentaro Kisaragi, Elena, Bayley, Steven Universe and Pinkie Pie, GUAG LOLRanger, Bomberman (Xavier only), Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee (Big E only), CM Punk (Kofi only) and all Black and Nerdy Gods, of course.
  • Rivals: The Usos (Worthy Opponent), The Wyatt Family, Cesaro, Randy Orton (Kofi only), The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins)
  • Friendly Rival: 9-Volt and 18-Volt
  • Enemies: Any and all gods that go against positivity.
  • Wary of: Matt Hardy
  • Being a fan of something isn't uncommon, but it's put into a different light when someone famous shares the same likes that a normal person does. These wrestlers are unashamed to admit that they are fanboys and they show it off in very creative ways.
    • Their entrance was a rather...unique one. One day, various gods found a large box of Booty-Os cereal in front of the entrance to the Pantheon. After knocking it over, the New Day appeared dressed like Super Saiyans before Xavier began playing on his trombone. Many gods (particularly the ones from Dragonball) had no idea what to think of it, except it was...surreal.
    • The road to becoming so beloved by the fans was difficult as they were originally a gospel choir/Nation of Domination pastiche that didn't pan out. Later, they showed off how they were grade-A Trolls and got so'much heat/cheers that they've been face ever since. This made them connect with Edge and Christian very well.
  • Don't be fooled by their looks. These guys are the longest reigning tag team champions in all of WWE and encountered London and Kendrick, who akso had a long tag team reign. However, the trio have been weirded out by London's antics recently, particularly the one of him murdering an innocent luchador. They also are nervous when they heard of Kendrick unleashing the legendary BURNING HAMMER move and rubbed their necks in apprehension.
  • The trio were absolutely ecstatic to find the characters they were big fans of, and spent days going to every temple where these gods resided and treated them with pancakes.
    • They weren't the first Black and Nerdy gods to arrive. Steve Urkel and Tucker Foley were glad to find fellow "Blerds" in the Pantheon.
  • They somehow have their own cereal, "Booty-Os" and can even promote pancakes like they're the best thing in the world. This made them friends with Princess Celestia (who makes absolutely delicious pancakes) and Nora Valkyrie (who absolutely loves eating delicious pancakes).
    • And because of their trolling antics, Princess Celestia offered them full-time membership with the LOL Rangers to which they accepted.
  • While they are known for their positive attitude, they have made some rivals along the way. The Usos are their biggest rivals, culminating in a Hell in the Cell match (Kofi had to be locked outside though) that was so epic and off the walls that the two had to stop fighting there before someone was legitimately hurt. The Wyatt Family, though? Well, they're not so keen about Bray wanted to bring about his doom-bringing speeches or the time they brawled in the Wyatt compound and are even more wary after learning what's happened to the Family: from Harper and Rowan becoming the Bludgeon Brothers, Strowman tossing everyone left and right and Bray allied with Matt Hardy (Who, they admit, kinda took inspiration from Matt's "Final Deletion" bout in their battle against the Wyatts). They keep their distance from the four, just in case.
    • And of course, the trio are wary of Matt Hardy. While the trio do agree that he deserves his seat more (as many gods also believed that the New Day would never become as successful as they are now), he might be even worse than Bray because Matt successfully caused his brother to snap and become "Brother Nero". And then they learned about that incident with Limbo...
    • These three can also go toe to toe with The Shield and everyone screamed "This is awesome!" upon seeing their bout.
  • The three were ecstatic to find Bayley in the Pantheon (albeit in the same house as Cesaro, but they'll live) and she introduced them to her fellow Avatars of Friendship (Gentaro Kisaragi, Elena, Pinkie Pie and Steven Universe). The groups got off real well as Gentaro proceeded to give the trio his handshake. (Bayley has also warned them to never ask Gentaro and Elena about a "Project" or anything involving an asylum, Limbo, and White Rabbits. They didn't want to hear the trauma those loverbirds went through.
  • Exclusive to Xavier:
    • Xavier likes to show off his skills on the trombone (Francesca 2, as he calls her since Chris Jericho snapped Francesca 1 over his knee and he held a funeral for said trombone), impressing many Final Fantasy gods when he recreated the victory theme.
    • While all three of them fit Black and Nerdy, Xavier tops this by having a degree in education psychology when he's not spreading positivity. In fact, he got a double major at the age of 22 and had been wrestling just one year after entering High School. This made many gods in the House of Knowledge respect him even more in being an absolute Badass Bookworm.
    • Has a gaming channel where many wrestlers come to enjoy gaming challenges and he's opened it up to everyone and anyone who wants to join in. Although he does have to point out in a sign not to throw controllers to the ground when upset (pointing out how AJ Styles has a problem with keeping his temper)
    • Is an ally to Bomberman and whenever he goes to Bomberman's temple, he gains a brand new look to reflect that.
    • Grimaced when he learned that Paige was in the Pantheon, due to a "movie" starring the two of them (not to mention her being the General Manager of the PWF)
    • Stared in awe at finding Power Ranger gods in the Pantheon (As he is billed from Angel Grove) and played the Dragonzord call on Francesca with glee. And then, he learned of the Toku Base...
  • Exclusive to Big E:
    • Is a huge fan of the Equestrian gods, with some gods even leaving him custom made pony figures when the three first arrived. The trio hit off with Mane 6 (with Pinkie Pie being the closest out of them) and all was well until Rainbow Dash foolishly noted that perhaps the Cutie Mark Crusaders would have some other wrestling friends now. This got the three curious and they soon learned from other wrestlers that the adorable fillies LARP in the House of Vampires. Things got interesting when they decided to deck out in Final Fantasy classes (Xavier the Bard, Kofi the Red Mage and Big E the Samurai) and the LARP when Off the Rails when they decided to "kill-steal" the Crusaders' victory over the dreaded ringmaster "Mr. Heath" (Gangrel). Then it culminated into a six-god tag team match over who would come out victorious with the fight being livestreamed for everyone to see. After an exhausting fight, both sides ended with a draw and they now have become close friends...and now are inviting visitors to join in on their epic campaigns to spread positivity and waking gods from dreams. The Mane 6 could only glare at Rainbow Dash for causing the whole kerfluffle.
    • And then more hoofs in mouths were placed after Rarity slipped about the Crusaders' journeys in Limbo. Gods know that asking the three about that incident would end horribly. The New Day tried to get the CMC to open up by having them play around of CarnEvil...and were blown away as the three screamed in absolute fury and mowed down the entire game cursing up a storm. They've now made it a mission to help uplift the three in any way possible.
    • With his arrival, gods finally figured out why Dean Ambrose once wrote "Titty Master" on his wrist tape; it was due to Ambrose constantly fighting Big E during a tour.
    • Was happy to find Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee in the Panthron. The three sometimes hang out at Moe's Tavern to catch up on old times. Many gods wonder what type of history Big E and AJ Lee but, just like no one will ever know the true story as to why Gangrel mentored Edge and Christian, the two have remained tight-lipped on their past.
    • Is known for stating "OH I GOT THE MIC NOW--" whenever it's his turn to get an interview.
  • Exclusive to Kofi:
    • Trying to eliminate Kofi is like trying to figure out who Archie Andrews will end up with in the future; every time he's thrown over the top rope, he'll always figure out a way to survive. From walking backwards on his hands, hopping on a chair, somehow surviving by the tip of his toes or even being carried back in by a bunch of party-goers, or even having his partners put a foot on a plate of pancakces then leap-frog him over the top ropes, gods better be prepared when it comes to a Battle Royal whenever he's involved.
    • Would really like to not remember his "Jamaican" phase at it was, even if it was later tweaked to him honoring his Ghana heritage. Although, ironically, Big E is the one with the Jamaican heritage.
      • Or the fact that his theme is about committing murder. When Deadpool pointed this out, Kofi gave Deadpool some Trouble in Paradise.
    • Is good friends with Mystery Inc. since he provided commentary during the Moto X race.
    • Was happy to find CM Punk in the House of Philosophy since they traveled together on the road, to the point that Kofi was considered Punk's "Road Wife".
    • Despite his energetic personality, he actually has wins over Randy Orton, including a non-title victory when Orton was a WWE Champion. Whether or not he'll challenge Orton again will have to wait, though.
    • Geeked out at all the Punch-Out! gods and asked Little Mac for a pink tracksuit of his own.

If anyone knows more on these guys, it's plenty appreciated.

Also, it's interesting to know the Illuminati can be as varied as being a heroic team in Marvel or Vandal Savage's tool for world domination in DC.
