Go To

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

    open/close all folders 

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.

I'd like to nominate Niko from OneShot for Addressing the Player.
*Reasoning: One Shot is largely built around this trope; even the fact that you had to download the game from somewhere is a major plot point eventually. Niko is the only one who can communicate with you (or I gues (InsertNameHere)) except for the Entity, which basically makes Niko a religious figure in the setting. There are scenes throughout the game dedicated to Niko and INH just getting to know each other and the worlds they come from.

Sep 20th 2019 at 1:39:37 PM

[up]Afraid that's taken by the Patapons.

I think I'm done with Chance.

Chance the Gardener, God of Seemingly Profound Fools (Chauncey Gardiner)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Crest of a lotus flower and a television remote control
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (tender heart, weak mind)
  • Portfolio: Seemingly Profound Fool, Ice-Cream Koan, Twist Ending, Mysterious Past, Parody Stus
  • Domains: Philosophy, Nature, Disability
  • Allies: Mary Lennox, Totoro, Fritz Von Meyer/Swarm, just about all the House of Plants, Forrest Gump
  • Enemies: GUAE Trollkaiger, Biff Tannen
  • Chance is a simple-minded man who knew no other life besides gardening and watching television. He had never even been outside until the man who sheltered him died and he was forced out and on his own. After being nearly run over by a business mogul's car, Chance was brought to his house to recover, and the mogul and his wife were charmed by his old-fashioned manners, mistaking him as being very well-educated and philosophical. More and more high-profile people come to see Chance in such a way and he rose to the top of the political world, with even a possibility of becoming the next president of the USA. This, despite the fact that he speaks of nothing but gardening, which most people take as deep metaphors for something more meaningful.
  • Unlike in his world, most deities in the Pantheon are wise to Chance's true nature and they're not sure someone as naive and uneducated as him should get himself involved in such matters as politics. Others would argue that someone like him is just what those corrupt circles need. Whatever the case, many deities of all stripes find his "advice" to be helpful and inspiring in some way or another, so he was allowed domain over Seemingly Profound Fool and a temple with a television and a huge garden, just the right things to make him happy.
  • He sometimes does gardening in other temples as well, when invited by their respective deities. Sometimes he's invited in tandem with Mary Lennox to see what their gardening abilities combined can produce. Their frequent work together has caused them to become good friends, and Chance often visits Mary in her temple for a cup of tea and to discuss gardening. Chance finds himself rather pleased that restoring a garden to its full splendor had such a positive effect in Mary's life.
  • Chance was quite amazed to discover that there exist plants that can talk to him as though they were other human beings. With that said, he still tries to take care of them like he would with any other plant; it's just that in such cases Chance will politely offer his services to them before anything else. Even evil flowers like Cagney Carnation and Flowey tolerate having him around their roots, ostensibly because he is too insignificant to bother with (at least, this is what they'll say if one asks them upfront). Upon hearing of his activities, Mary advised Chance to at least be careful of Flowey, as the evil flower has done some really terrible things in her opinion. Chance listened, though he keeps visiting Flowey for reasons only he knows.
    • Seeing his kindness, Flowey has considered telling Chance about where his true loyalties lie and about his past, but ultimately he thinks Chance doesn't have the mind to understand the gravity of it and he might spread it around by accident. Nevertheless, anyone who attacks Chance is liable to feel Flowey's wrath.
    • With all that said, Chance learned the hard way not to go anywhere near Audrey II after the carnivorous plant nearly tore his arm off. Learning that she required human blood for nourishment convinced Chance that it's really better to leave that one alone. And yet, even after all that, he still doesn't seem to bear her any ill will.
  • One of the few adult humans capable of seeing Totoro, certainly because his extremely sheltered upbringing combined with his simple-mindedness meant he never had the opportunity to become world-weary like most adults. Totoro, as a nature spirit, really likes Chance's deep understanding of plants and the way he handles them, so much so that he frequently helps out with his own divine intervention to allow the plants to bloom to their full potential.
  • Somehow Fritz Von Meyer/Swarm has managed to strike a deal with Chance - everything that grows in the Pantheon gets pollinated, even the man-eaters, a tithe of honey every month - and in return, Swarm gets every melted puddle of ice cream in the Pantheon and something new to think about every other day.
  • The fact that in his world he was last recorded walking on water has some deities wondering whether Chance possesses much greater power than appearances suggest. Asking him about it is pointless as Chance always says gardening is all he knows, but the Main House has him under scrutiny to see whether he can pull off more miracles, maybe even unintentionally.
  • He is definitely not the sort to make enemies easily, being naturally unfailingly gentle and just too content where he is, and also possessing nothing of value that he could be targeted for. But his very passive demeanor and lack of wit can lead to some particularly scummy deities wanting to torment him anyway. He's a favorite target for bullies like Biff Tannen to pick on, and deities who relish psychological torment like those composing the Trollkaiger, who'll sometimes take the time to wreck Chance's beloved gardens. Poor Chance can't do much except resignedly fix the damage, but fortunately Mary and the whole House of Plants are on his side on such occasions. And Flowey will personally get revenge for Chance.
  • Chance is often compared to Forrest Gump, because they both have a tendency to say things that have no deeper meaning below the surface, yet tend to greatly affect whoever is listening. And as some envious deities point out, they both rose to incredible heights with very little effort. With that said, when the two meet, it's all pretty mundane and even boring, as they are both impervious to each other's faux-hidden meanings. But at any rate they find each other to be very pleasant company, having similar calm temperaments.

Maybe Niko could take Sekaikei Genre, as the game is a character-focused story about trying to prevent an incoming apocalypse, and has a very Bittersweet Ending.

@Chance: [tup]

Here's Mr. Killian again. Anything to suggest and fix in regards to interactions or does he look good to go?

Damon Killian, Deified Smarmy Host (Dan Killian)
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: The ICS logo
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Non-Action Big Bad, Bad Boss, Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, Game Show Host, Sadistic Game Show
  • Domains: Entertainment, Corruption
  • Superior: Stephen King
  • Potential Stalkers for his Program: Kano, Reaper, Destroyman, Tira
  • Allies: Diana Christensen, Gleeman Vox (albeit very tenuously)
  • Enemies: Jack Cayman, Ratchet, Clank, Katniss Everdeen, John Rambo, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage & Jacqui Briggs
  • Opposed by: Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone
  • Respected by: Howard & Kreese
  • In the dystopian future of 2017, the world economy has collapsed and the United States has turned into a tyrannical cesspool where nearly any form of meaningful entertainment has been outlawed. To placate the masses, a variety of dangerous game shows have been made, with the most popular being The Running Man. In that show, convicted criminals and people who are slandered as such are fighting for their lives to escape an assortment of Stalkers, various trained killers out to get them. Damon Killian is the host of this program and he presents himself as a larger-than-life and charming figure to the public. Whenever the cameras aren't rolling, he's a deplorable person to work with and is nothing more than a greedy, lying sociopath who cares little about the people he's working with and even less to the contestants that he finds.
  • Some villainous figures were sighted taking a body to the House of Life and Death as part of a mission of some kind. A few moments later, Damon Killian found himself with a couple of unfamiliar figures who told him about the Pantheon and how they were fans of The Running Man, the game show he hosted back then. Killian saw a lot of potential in reviving that program specifically for the Pantheon and after clearing an arduous legal process, he revived The Running Man for those in the Pantheon looking to enjoy some brutal entertainment.
  • While Killian's show was massively popular back in his world, the same can't be said about its revival in the Pantheon. It's true that deities who are into violence and pointless suffering enjoy the program, but the Pantheon is far from the dystopian landscape that has people numbing themselves to enjoy dumb carnage. If anything, there's a lot of deities that have been trying to get his program cancelled for several reasons. Not only does Killian not care about what those detractors think of him and his show, but he has even considered putting them on the show as a means of finding more people to punish for the sick amusement of his fans.
  • Diana Christensen was looking for additional programming to put on her network when she heard about Killian, his program, and how he managed to make it successful in spite of the dystopian world he came from. Following a phone call where she expressed interest in The Running Man, Killian made his way to her office and they discussed how his program can fit on her network, which mainly consisted of sensationalist material. A deal was worked out between the two, with ICS being a production arm of UBS and not only has The Running Man become a part of UBS' Pantheon programming, but so has the number of other demented game shows produced by ICS. The doctored footage that ICS has is also beneficial to UBS as they can use it to fuel more sensationalist coverage.
    • Gleeman Vox, who was already working with Diana and had his own deathmatch show that he re-purposed for the Pantheon, learned about Killian and wanted to know what was going on after another deathmatch show made its way to Diana's network. A meeting between Gleeman and Killian was then set up with Diana overseeing the meeting in case tensions arose between the two deathmatch producers. Some of the more tense moments from that meeting included Killian calling Gleeman out over doing a terrible job at doctoring footage to make someone look bad and being unable to get anywhere with Gleeman's supposed star player, Ace Hardlight. Diana believed that the shows that Gleeman and Killian made can coexist and that they can learn a few things from each other in addition to having elements that make one stand out from the other. While the meeting ended with Gleeman and Killian both working for Diana and them learning from each other, the two have a pronounced business rivalry involving which of their shows will attract larger viewing numbers.
  • Among those who despise him to no end are the numerous deities that have been participants of different kinds of death games in the past. Jack Cayman has made it explicitly clear that he has no interest in working as a Stalker in the program despite Killian's interest in him. Ratchet and Clank have already had enough trouble in surviving death games and see him as no different, if not worse, than Gleeman Vox in that regard. Of those participants, Katniss Everdeen is more than willing to shoot an arrow at his face for having a hand in something that's too similar to what she had to endure. As she's not that far from his headquarters, she's had plenty of chances to strike, but she's waiting for when the right plan is put in place. Killian is more than aware of their skills as fighters that warrant them a potential spot in his show, but he's making sure that their efforts in trying to shut him down go nowhere as he doesn't want a repeat of what happened when his show was hijacked by an underground resistance group.
  • During a press tour for his show, Killian was taken aback after seeing who he thought was an older Ben Richards and believed that he had come back for revenge. It turned out that it was simply Arnold Schwarzenegger and that he was simply an actor who played Ben Richards in a film called The Running Man. Given how famous Schwarzeneeger is, Killian attempted to ask him to be a co-host for the Pantheon version of The Running Man, but the actor preferred not to have any involvement with it at all. Sylvester Stallone was another actor that Killian approached, but Stallone rejected the same offer as well. Killian has since decided to look into John Rambo, a character played by Stallone, and figured that his kill-count is something that could earn the soldier a spot on The Running Man. After hearing about that show, Rambo has stated that he only kills if necessary and was insulted with what Killain is doing.
  • Stalkers have been a significant part of The Running Man thanks to them being an assortment of killers with a noticeable gimmick and the Pantheon has given Killian plenty of opportunities to find deities willing to fill these roles. Some of the deities who were willing to find the time to become Stalkers for him (or more accurately, kill someone on live television just because) included Kano, Reaper, Destroyman, and Tira. Given that all four had something that got Killian's attention for various reasons (be it Kano and Destoryman being cyborgs that will rip out hearts or shoot from their crotches respectively, Reaper being a trigger-happy masked figure, and Tira's split-personality combined with her insane behavior), he put them on a list that he's compiling involving Stalkers that would make The Running Man, more of a success than it's ever been.
  • Finding deities who would be potential Runners for his program has proven easier said than done especially with the stronger resistance against it compared to then. One unsuccessful attempt involved trying to get Johnny Cage on the show given the latter's experience as an actor in addition to combat expertise. Johnny Cage knew better than to work with a corrupt entertainment figure and delivered some insults that culminated in him telling Killian to fuck off. Killian wasn't deterred by all this and has still made plenty of attempts to find other Runners, even trying to get Johnny's daughter Cassie and her friend Jacqui Briggs involved much to their irritation.
  • One of the very few deities that doesn't mind getting themselves in The Running Man is The Leader of the 3rd Street Saints. Part of it is due to them having previously starring in a death game titled Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax, which involved the Boss having to evade deadly traps and shoot at a variety of mascots trying to murder them. Then again, it's likely that they're willing to go on the program just to make fools out of Killian and whatever Stalkers they have to confront, though Killian isn't going to make things easy should The 3rd Street Saints Leader actually come on the show.
  • Howard & Kreese got a chance to see a few episodes of The Running Man, mainly to see how it fares in comparison to DeathWatch. As enticing as the offer of them being announcers on the show is, there's a lot of violence going on elsewhere in the Pantheon that the two can't really commit to working fully on The Running Man.
    Howard: It ain't exactly DeathWatch, but seeing something close to it is better than seeing a lack of them on live television, even if we can go elsewhere in the Pantheon to witness more carnage.
    Kreese: I'm going to have to hand it to Diana and Killian. While all those fucking pussies are sitting around insisting that all that gore can't be shown live, those two have defied all odds and have given the Pantheon a viable and entertaining DeathWatch substitute without all that ideological wanking from Enoshima's Killing Games.

After checking the VS Battle , ought I add Lucifer's other forms of Helel, Demon, his second form, Louis Cyphre to his profile? Considering Satan's alternate forms are shown wouldn't it be a joke not to do the same for Lucifer?

Still trying to ascend Guido Mista as the God of Inverse Law of Utility and Lethality. He has 1 [tup]. How many do I need to make a portfolio?

His Sex Pistols lets him redirect bullets, which sounds useful. Unfortunately, he only ever wins a single fight and is forced to contribute to others characters' victories instead. He's only ever killed 2 characters (one of them wanted to die and the other was using a weak body).

There's also Leone Abbachio as the God who Dislikes the New Guy.

His Establishing Character Moment has him serve Giorno urine (claiming it's tea), he initially refuses to let him look at Moody Blues, gets mad at him during the fight against Illuso, and disagrees when Giorno tries to accompany Buccarati.

Meanwhile, Kinderheim 511 got buried in profiles just now so...

Prototype mode

Kinderheim 511, Unholy Seat of Terrible Orphanages
Kinderheim 511 after being burned down, as seen from the east facade
  • Description: An old mansion with a grand staircase in former East Germany
  • Symbol: Neutral Evil, but turns out mostly Chaotic Evil graduates
  • Portfolio: Orphanage of Fear, Staff And Orphans In Constant Conflict, Run By the East German Ministry Of Health and Ministry Of Internal Affairs, Was Created To Make Perfect Soldiers But Got Exterminated By Its Best One
  • Domains: Communism, Death, Indoctrination, Nihilism, Socialism, Soldiers, War
  • (Not) Sacred to: Johan Liebert, Kenzo Tenma
  • Located in former East Berlin, Kinderheim 511 is a special orphanage run by the defunct Internal Department. It housed orphans who were the children of criminals, political activists, traitors, and spies, people who under the Soviet East German regime given not even the most basic of human rights. These children are subject to inhumane discrimination by immoral and corrupt staff, with only the most grudging care being given to their survival. For example, packages sent to the children are stolen by instructors and directors and resold.
  • Intended to turn children into obedient soldiers subservient to the East German government, experiments are conducted on them such as desensitizing them to violence, endless rounds of brainwashing to produce catharsis as well as other modes of human programming and negative reinforcement. If things go well, the orphan's sense of self (including being addressed by number instead of name) as well as emotion would be destroyed. Studies were made into how the orphans mentally evolved towards selfishness and fear then eventually to hate and fight amongst themselves. This philosophy would prove to be the orphanage's undoing.
  • Kinderheim 511 was indirectly based on the eugenics experiment of Czech psychologist Franz Bonaparta. Ironically, one of the twins born from said experiment, Johan Liebert, would turn out to be one of the most successful alumni of the orphanage due to his already fraught childhood under the watch of Bonaparta and Petr Čapek. Johan and his sister Anna were found unconscious on the Czech-German border by General Helmut Wolf. While Anna was sent to the more ordinary Kinderheim 47 run by the Welfare Department, Johan's sociopathic tendencies were noted and General Wolf signed off on the paperwork for him to be sent to Kinderheim 511. The higher-ups at the orphanage were curious at his exceptional behaviour surpassing the program's parameters and subjected him to a forced interview under chemical treatment to determine how far this went, which can be found here.
  • When he grew tired of being at the orphanage, he spread rumours throughout the orphanage of a boy put on sleeping pills and how terrifying he was, encouraging the other orphans to rebel and use the skills of said boy to manipulate their instructors to hate the directors. He stretched the mental health of everyone in the orphanage to breaking point, which led to the deaths of its highest-ranking officers. Chaos ensued in the battle for succession, culminating in the entire population of the orphanage killing each other in a bloody massacre. Johan just watched serenely from his chair on the orphanage's grand staircase as a fire broke out and completely razed the orphanage, with only a few survivors. After the fire, the East German government halted all operations and experiments in Kinderheim 511. All documents pertaining to the orphanage were burnt and disposed of, and most of its surviving staff fled Germany for neighbouring countries like the Czech Republic when the Berlin Wall fell.
  • As of the end of the series, the fates of those related to the orphanage and its administration are as follows:
    • Hartmann, a high-ranking member of the Ministry of Health still lived in the vicinity of the orphanage years after its disbandment. He was attempting to turn his adopted child Dieter into another Johan Liebert by applying the Kinderheim 511 methods on him. He was later arrested.
    • Mikhail Petrov (formerly Reinhart Biermann) escaped 511 before the fateful massacre, and is implied to be a supervising director of the orphanage. Possibly to atone for his past actions, he adopted a group of orphans illegally and raised them in the opposite way the Kinderheim 511 orphans were raised. He was one of those killed in Johan's bloody swath to eliminate all who knew of his existence. It is likely that he conducted the interview mentioned above.
    • Helmut Wolf later became part of a neo-Nazi society seeking to control Johan Liebert and make him the next Hitler. He notably does not share the anti-Semitic interests of the others, only seeking Johan so he could have him detained or killed to end his threat to humanity once and for all. Johan would get the upper hand and kill everyone who knew Wolf personally, with the intention of forcing upon the General the solitude he felt when he was recovered on the border.
    • So basically, don't be a staff member of Kinderheim 511. Whether it's through losing your sanity or being another one of Johan's victims, it will not end well for you.
  • Several Kinderheim 511 alumni also joined Johan's cause for varying reasons. Most prominently was Adolf Reinhart (alias Roberto) who essentially was Johan's chief enforcer, playing any role that was required of him to kill anyone Johan thought was a threat to his agenda. He aimed to see 'the landscape of the end' that Johan strived to create, to be the last person standing at the end of the world.
    • Wolfgang Grimmer, arguably the most 'normal' of Kinderheim 511 graduates was unable to experience real emotions and had only a miniscule amount of empathy for others. It was especially difficult for him to even crack a smile.
  • Thanks to the House of Knowledge, HYDRA has managed to re-establish Kinderheim 511 in the Pantheon as a Dominion.

I actually have an idea for Abbacchio getting the trope Tragic Mistake as it was the act of taking a bribe to look the other way that cost him his career and his partner's life leading to Cynicism Catalyst. Even as he was picked up by Passione, he's still very much haunted and broken by his past. A real damn shame given his sense of justice would of been promising otherwise had it not been whittled down by the people's daunting expectations to the force dealing with the rampant crime.

I believe she subtly grows warms up to Giorno too. The fight with Tiziano and Squalo had him use his ability without having Giorno to look to way. Though I think perhaps the strongest evidence would be the death mask he left behind which only could have been uncovered by Gold Expereince.

My two rebels (Elliot and Yuri) will be up pretty soon for feedback and election.

Anyway, reposting my Oliver and Roger drafts again after some refining.

Oliver has 3 [tup]'s from fasoman96, The Wikia Editor and Master Hero

The Roger Family has 1 [tup] from The Wikia Editor

Election Mode

Oliver Twist, God of Poverty Food
  • House of Commerce (Poverty & Riches) and Food (Meals)
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A bowl of gruel
  • Theme: The Road to the Workhouse
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Heartwarming Orphan who Goes through a Lot, Struggles in Poverty to Earn Food, Happens to be present during major events, Really Sweet (Unless someone insults his Mother), Street Urchin, Orphan's Ordeal, Earn Your Bittersweet Ending
  • Domains: Orphan, Poverty, Struggle, Food
  • Allies: The Orphan Quintet (Pollyanna Whittier, Anne Shirley, Anne-Marie, Heidi, Sara Crewe), Testuya Tsurugi, The Baudelaire Siblings, Madeline, Annie, Kazuma Kiryu, Jean Valjean, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Link, The Straw Hat Pirates, Peter Pan, Charlie Bucket
  • Enemies: Heihachi Mishima, Ozai, The 456 Ambassador, Basco ta Jolokia,
  • Pitied By: The House of Food
  • Conflicting Opinion: Stewie Griffin
  • His mother dying shortly after giving birth to him, Oliver Twist went through a series of misfortune and mistreatment whilst living in a workhouse, working to have at least three gruel a day. This culminated in a series of bullies insulting Oliver's deceased mother in front of him and a fight, after which Oliver escaped the workhouse and encountered Jack Dawkins, "The Artful Dodger", whom tricked Oliver into being serviced under the criminal Fagin. Oliver would later persist and eventually lead a successful life, although many of his friends and close associates would die, in addition to Oliver still having a series of unresolved issues.
  • The Pantheon was a rather memorable experience for Oliver. He was overwhelmingly surprised and was eager to see this new world in which he had ascended into. Of course, he would temper his curiosity and try to see if there was someone helpful he could find, considering the amount of misfortune he had to go through.
  • Much of the Pantheon expressed their sympathies for what Oliver had to go through, especially with the workhouse, Jack, Fagin and Bill Sikes. They've decided to grant Oliver access to much of the House of Food to remedy the the struggle Oliver went through to earn himself three pots of gruel. Oliver is happy, though he feels as if the Pantheon is being too flattering on him.
  • An orphan himself, Oliver soon met the Orphan Quintet, who have their fair share of troubles and struggles during their orphaning years. Oliver was really pleased to see individuals who have been through a similar predicament and is more than willing to help them out. The company of Pollyanna Whittier especially helped in getting Oliver to act more optimistic and happy about himself and towards others.
    • He also found company under other orphans like Tetsuya Tsurugi and the Baudelaire Orphans for obvious reasons. Because of the type of friends he has now made, Oliver finds himself frequently visiting the House of Family whenever he needs company and support. On a similar, note, he has gained assistance from Madeline and Annie regarding how to fend for himself and cherishing his closest memories.
    • Charlie Bucket immediately struck a friendship with Oliver the moment the latter ascended. The two had a lot to relate to, with neither of them having proper housing to accommodate them and with food being a major part in their tales. While the two of them managed to find themselves in a more manageable situation regarding profit, Charlie seems guilty in that he has something Oliver doesn't. He tries his best to cheer up Oliver, even taking him to the Chocolate Factory at times.
  • Kazuma Kiryu has expressed sympathy for what Oliver had to go through, and offered him a place to take comfort in. He's allowed Oliver to visit his orphanage at any given time, and would try to appoint meetings with other orphans as well to give Oliver company. Oliver also befriended Jean Valjean, seeing as both went through similar hardships. Jean is also willing to aid and support Oliver should the latter desire. That, and the two of them also had their stories published in Film and Stage Musicals.
  • Bruce Wayne took notice of Oliver's past and hardships, immediately sympathizing with Oliver. He decided to invest a good deal of his profit on providing resources and support for him, and Bruce himself gets to meet Oliver once in a while, talking to him and giving him advice and therapy to help him out. There's rumors of Bruce wanting to appoint Oliver as an additional Robin, which he's made no comment of as of yet. Peter Pan also took notice, often getting Tinkerbell to blanket Oliver with pixie-dust to give him a fun time. As a result, Oliver became fast friends with Peter, often spending time flaying around the Pantheon, though Pan knows that Oliver would grow out of it.
  • The Straw Hat Pirates have decided to allow Oliver to have fun with them as many times as he would like to provide him with joy. Luffy, being incredibly passionate about friendships and realizing the struggle he had to go through to eat, is very close to Oliver, even allowing him to have his food, which was surprising given Luffy's approach to eating. On a similar note, Link, himself having learned to make food will often give his servings to Oliver. Oliver is content with how much support he is getting in the Pantheon since, though he would also like to see if he can earn them himself.
  • As someone who had his experiences with abusive figures, Oliver hates Heihachi and Ozai for their horrible treatment towards their children, in addition to the latter not having any guilt in him whatsoever. The two remind him all too well about Bill Sikes and his treatment towards Nancy. Similarly, he avoids the 456 Ambassador and Basco ta Jolokia as much as he could, considering the two of them specifically target children for their own malicious means.
  • Oliver once heard of an incident where Stewie Griffin imagined himself as Oliver. After learning that Stewie would oppress himself against the workhouse and force his superior into a dance, Oliver chuckled upon hearing it. That said while he does like how Stewie would assert his defense, Oliver is not fond of his bratty, smug demeanor. Stewie himself doesn't seem to mind Oliver's presence in the Pantheon either. While he is a jerk, Stewie knows what Oliver went through, so he has made an exception on going after him.
  • While he would escape poverty and find financial stability after being adopted by his maternal aunt, Oliver has not fully recovered from his tribulations, especially considering he's been struggling for the entirety of his childhood. The deaths of Nancy and Dick still etches clear in his mind, although happy, Oliver knows he will never forget about his experiences. For now, he is finding new company as a means for therapy and a sign of moving on.

The Roger Family, Beastly Gods of Boxing Kangaroos (Roger Sr., Mrs. Roger, Roger Jr.)
Top to Bottom: Roger Sr. and Mrs. Roger (With Roger Jr. on her pouch)
  • House of Beast (Mammals)
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: A pair of boxing gloves
  • Theme: Tekken 2 Roger & Alex Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Boxing Kangaroos, Badass Family, The Unintelligible, Boxing Style does not Impede in Wrestling Moves, Roger Jr. is Cute-as-Buttons, Mrs. Roger Fights with her Son, Red Boxing Gloves (Roger Jr. Possesses Blue and Yellow)
  • Domains: Kangaroos, Boxing, Genetic Engineering, Family Dysfunction
  • Heralds: Alex
  • Allies: Alisa Bosconovich, Lars Alexandersson, King II, Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed, Ippo Makunouchi, Little Mac, Dudley, Hoppy , Crash Bandicoot
  • Sporting Competition With: The Boxers of Punch Out!!
  • Enemies: Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya Mishima, Riptor, Balrog, Pokemon Hunter J, Dr. Neo Cortex
  • On Good Terms With: The House of Sports
  • Conflicted Opinion: Ripper Roo
  • During his rule in the Mishima Zaibatsu, Kazuya opted with Dr. Bosconovich to create a series of genetically enhanced animals with overly aggressive tendencies. The results were partially successful; the animals were much smarter and able to be trained, though they didn't become more aggressive. Among them was Roger, a married Kangaroo who entered the Second King of the Iron Fist Tournament. Alongside him was a Deinonychus, Alex. Later on, Roger's son, Jr. and Mrs. Rogers would enter the fifth tournament, although much of their time would be spent in solitary peace.
  • Upon ascension, the boxing kangaroos took the time to visit the House of Sports to practice and display their boxing skills. They've since become popular visitors.
    • The Roger Family has become well acquainted with fellow boxers like Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed, Dudley, Ippo Makunouchi and Little Mac, all of whom enjoy the company of the kangaroo. Alex also takes the time to visit, and while he is less popular, he still manages to be an occasional guest. Several boxers from Little Mac's world see the Roger Family as rivals, though they do respect the family for being close-knitted.
  • The Roger Family once encountered Hoppy, a Hoppasaurus who also likes boxing. The two have become fast friends, with Hoppa occasionally meeting up with them, sparring, training and the parents even allowing Hoppy to take Roger Jr. on occasional rides.
  • Given that they were created by Dr. Bosconovich, the Roger Family are rather protective of Alisa, the latter of whom treats the kangaroos with respect and care. Its Alisa whom the Roger Family spend time with the most, with Alisa taking cues to mentoring and babysitting Roger Jr. at times. The Roger Family sees Alisa as a mother of sorts, and would do anything to provide for her.
  • Took an immediate disliking towards Balrog, as he used as many dirty tricks as possible to try having the fight on his favor. Him nearly hitting Roger Jr. only made his mother more angry, and pounded the hell out of him. They did however, find a new friend in Dudley, who is eager to give the Roger Family a good fight and service.
  • Given their terrible treatment and disregard, the Roger Family firmly oppose Heihachi and Kazuya, who don't really care much about them. Additionally, an encounter with Riptor also went sour as the engineered raptor tried to attack and kill the family. A timely second-wind from Alex helped to repel Riptor, who's still intending to finish what she started.
  • Hunter J, wanting a good bounty, captured the Roger Family, and was close to achieving her award, when Alisa suddenly arrived with Lars Alexandersson to rescue the kangaroos. They were able to save them and engage J's Pokemon before the Roger Family turned their sights on the poacher. J was forced to retreat due to being overwhelmed, though she has admitted it won't be the last time in her attempts of capturing the Roger Family.
  • The Roger Family met up with Ripper Roo, formerly the Pantheon's sole kangaroo. Riper Roo was pleased to see a family of kangaroo's find a place in the Pantheon for themselves and has offered them amicable service. The Roger Family aren't exactly fond of Ripper's rambunctious and crazy nature, with Mrs. Roger frequently having to shelter her son during weird experiments. That said, they are willing to accept Ripper's hospitality.
    • Ripper Roo did find some camaraderie when the Roger Family were once targeted by Dr. Cortex who wanted the kangaroos for research. He was stopped by Crash Bandicoot, who surprisingly didn't save the Roger Family, who actually set themselves free to confront and attack Dr. Cortex. Ripper Roo was surprised by the turn of events, but liked the family for their headstrong and tenacious personality. Crash has since maintained close relations, even bringing the Roger Family along to play with Crash's friends and family.
  • A few residents are surprised to learn that Roger and Mrs. Roger are actually divorced, with Roger himself being seen as a sign of embarrassment on his wife's part. Even more shockingly, there's the implication that Mrs. Roger might be hooking up with Alex, himself a bigger Butt-Monkey than Roger himself.
