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.

To re-iterate:

Also note Johan's personality and outlook: the orphanage is trying to create intellectual monsters like Johan, born leaders instead of straight-up super soldiers. I guarantee there's no one as nondescript and evil as Johan Liebert in the Pantheon who's a normal human being. And I need kids who are born political leaders of sorts, who have the intellectual capability to pull off things like what Johan did.

For example, in the last arc of Monster, he had his men hand out weapons to random people in the rural village of Ruhenheim and literally forced the quiet town into a 99% massacre of its population. My god.

@n3xus: I need some incentive on who specifically in SHOCKER. I doubt Ryoma would be the most interested in it as a deep source of research. Kinderheim 511 is for creating the above, not kaijin or Lockseeds.

@Whirl: Totally forgot abt her. Thanks. But Granny would be impressed that a non-superpowered world like Johan's would turn out someone like him, especially without superpowers or enhanced characteristics of any kind.

[up] It's going just fine. Why do you ask?

Ah, yes, Granny Goodness. She runs the child orphanages on Apokolips, where she uses cruel and unusual torture to teach the children there that pain and agony are both good forms of affection, and instills in them a loyalty and love for her and, more importantly, for Darkseid.

Of course, if you're going to reference a New God in the context of torture, it would be incredibly remiss to not mention Desaad, Darkseid's advisor and master torturer, and the New God of Sadism. He's named after the infamous Marquis de Sade, whose name is where the English word "Sadism" is derived, and Desaad doesn't disappoint there. He has the ability to enter a person's mind and manipulate their emotions, and gains power from other peoples' pain.

[down] I'm sure you're joking, but I'm not talking about in the Pantheon. In the DC Universe, Desaad is the New God representing Sadism. In the Pantheon, he's God of Torture Technicians.

[up] Isn't Esdeath the Goddess of Sadism? Because its stated....on wait nvm. No that was a case of Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!. In the case of Kinderheim 511, its course would be heavily drawn from Desaad's mental regimen, and maybe Ebony Maw too, but tailored for normal humans.

Also would like to draw your attention to this:

  • (Evolto) Came under the radar of the Green Lantern Corp who were concerned with his planet destroying abilities. The one member that Evolto became interested in is Mogo. This is because Evolto had never destroyed a living planet before and wanted to find out what draining its life away would be like.

  • During one of the their adventures, the Phantom Thieves ended up dragged into the "world of movies", labyrinths based off of movies with twisted plots and Designated Heroes as their protagonists. There, they meet a girl named Hikari, who cannot bring herself to talk to anyone and relies on her companion Nagi to speak on her behalf due to having been broken by something in her past. Despite this, she still tries to help them to the best of her ability. While traveling through them, the Phantom Thieves cross paths with the members of S.E.E.S. and the Investigation Team, as well as Makoto Yuki's Alternate Self, Kotone Shiomi, all of whom befriend Hikari and help her to open up to them as they clear the labyrinths and change the movie endings for the better. Eventually clearing the fourth labyrinth based off of her movie allows Hikari to move past her trauma and become a great ally to the Persona users, even helping them to put an end to Nagi's reign when she is revealed to have trapped countless other people in a Cinema of their own. With the crisis resolved, everybody returns to their rightful point in time without any memories of what they experienced, with Hikari telling her father of her dream to be a film director just like him. She is last shown playing the movie she made of her life and growth, the Phantom Thieves attending and Ren Amamiya starting to remember her...
  • One night while she was sleeping, Hikari's will ended up in the Pantheon confused, but it allowed her to regain all of the memories of what she experienced in the World of Movies the moment she heard all of her friends were in the Pantheon. Sure enough, a big happy reunion between her and all of the Persona users she helped ensued, especially with Futaba Sakura, Kotone Shiomi, and Ren Amamiya.
  • However, the reunion is bittersweet, as she learns that the Makoto Yuki and Kotone Shiomi in the Pantheon are illusions. She is greatly saddened by their heroic sacrfices (more so with Kotone, given how close the two were), but understands and accepts that it had to be done. She can only hope that one day, Makoto and Kotone will be free from their duties once they no longer need to act as the Great Seal. The illusions still act like the real deal though, so she can still talk and hang out with them.
  • Hikari is a big fan of movies, having grown up watching them since she was a child, as such she was very excited to see the many movie heroes in the Pantheon, such as Superman, Luke Skywalker, Indiana Jones, etc. That said, she doesn't like movies that portray their protagonist as heroic when their actions proved them to be anything but, nor when they portray characters as villains when they haven't done anything wrong.
  • Hikari was able to get along with some of the people her friends helped and befriended throughout their adventures. She became great friends with Zen & Rei since they met the the Investigation Team and S.E.E.S. during an similar adventure through the labyrinths, she got along great with Labrys and sympathizes with her over horrible treatment from people who only saw her as a machine, and she also befriended Ryoji, who reminds her Yosuke and is greatly saddened over how little he had control over his fate.
  • She has a great amount of respect for the Sumaru City Persona-users, since they saved the world before her friends, and she is sympathetic towards them having to lose their memories of each other to put a stop to a great threat to the world. She hopes she can bond with them the same way she did with her friends.
  • Her opinion on Goro Akechi after learning of his crimes is mixed. She is outright horrified by the mental shutdowns he's inflicted on other people and is severely disappointed in him when he tried to kill Ren, but on the other hand, she does pity him for his backstory, noting the similarities with her own. All the same, even after his Heroic Sacrifice, she prefers to keep her distance, since she still can't bring herself to trust him.
  • Hikari is cautious around Sho Minazuki, due to his actions towards her friends and his anti-social behavior. While he is on barely neutral terms with everybody, Hikari still prefers to avoid him.
  • Hikari has personally gone through some horrific trauma in the form of 4 separate incidents that destroyed her self-esteem, each one represented in the world of movies:
    • When Hikari was in elementary school, the class rabbit passed away, and the teacher blamed her for neglecting it. What really happened was that the teacher had given Hikari's classmates food that was bad for the rabbit, and the other students ignored Hikari's warnings about the food. The teacher took Hikari's refusal to apologize for something she didn't do as a sign she is guilty, ordering the class to join her in humiliating Hikari until she apologized. This incident was reflected in "Kamoshidaman", where the titular Superhero represented Hikari's teacher and how she believed her words were absolute and always right. The civilians represented the other students who went along with the teacher. Kamoshidaman's One-Winged Angel form represented the class rabbit.
    • In middle school, Hikari reached out to and befriended a bullied girl named Miyuki. But when the bullies started targeting Hikari, Hikari's friends decided to exclude Miyuki from the group so they can avoid being bullied. When Hikari stood up for her, the Girl Posse decided to exclude her instead, and they pressured Miyuki into agreeing with them in exchange for joining them, causing poor Hikari to feel betrayed. "Junessic Land" represented this incident with Hikari being Yosukesaurus, the Herbivore pack being the Girl Posse (with one Herbivore even having a similar hairstyle to Miyuki), and the Carnivores representing the bullies. The Pack using majority vote and their decisions to abandon their fellow dinosaurs represented how the Girl Posse used peer pressure and manipulation, as well their willingness to abandon a friend so they can avoid being bullied.
    • In High School, when Hikari neglected her studies so she can learn how to be a film director, her relatives confronted her and cruelly told her such a dream is impossible and she should focus on getting into a good university instead, caring more about her making good grades and more money than getting a creative job that would make her happy. They even go so far as to try to take her camera away, something she treasured very much. "A.I.G.I.S." represented this incident with Ribbon being Hikari and the Overseer/Mother Computer being her relatives. The Overseer's attempts to wipe away Ribbon's personality and individuality represented how the relatives wanted to force Hikari to abandon her dream and get a normal job like everyone else.
    • The catalyst for her depression is when her father said the wrong words out of genuine concern, "Why do you have to be like that?". Hikari's father had encouraged her dream and was the only one who supported her in life, so hearing him say those words caused Hikari to believe even her own father had abandoned her, causing her to shut herself away from everyone. The final film-based labyrinth represented how throughout Hikari's life, people have forced her to believe that having individual thoughts made her a bad person. Doe, the mysterious creature that the Persona-users have come across in Hikari's cinema, is revealed to be a cognition of Hikari's father that was trying to help her, but her distorted perception of him corrupted him. Only when Hikari realizes her father truly loved her and helps her friends put a stop to Doe's rampage does he take the form the Hikari's father, symbolizing that Hikari has finally moved past her trauma.
  • Because of these incidents, Hikari is able to sympathize with many deities who suffered from similar traumas, as well as oppose those who cause said traumas. Hikari befriends Haruka Kotoura and Matilda Wormwood, both of them having suffered from mistreatment for being different. Hikari is saddened by how Haruka's parents actually did abandon and disowned her, but does have hope that the Haruka will at least be able to fully reconcile with her mother one day. Hikari also shows contempt for Agatha Trunchbull, whose treatment of Matilda reminds her of the elementary school teacher who humiliated her back in her childhood.
  • Hikari does not take betrayal well, having been betrayed by Miyuki in middle school, so she opposes every evil god in the House of Betrayal, especially Peter Pettigrew (who sold out his friends out of cowardice). She also doesn't like bullies, as they caused the circumstances of her second trauma, so naturally she opposes the likes of Biff Tannen and Libby Chessler.
  • The one person she can't stand the most is Junko Enoshima. Junko's desires despair so much, she would even manipulate her classmates into betraying and killing each other. This disgusts Hikari outright, since it reminds her of how Nagi had made countless people watch negative films that fueled their depression, including her. But whereas Nagi had the excuse of Blue and Orange Morality and a genuine desire to help those people, Junko is a Card-Carrying Villain who did it just to make herself feel good.
  • She also doesn't like Lotso, who also felt feelings of abandonment from someone who actually loved them, yet he chose to take his pain onto other toys out of spite. Akechi at least tried to do the right thing in the end, but Lotso refused to take the chance to redeem himself, even when Woody and Buzz went out of their way to save him, instead leaving Andy's toys to die in the incenerator while mocking them. She feels absolutely no sympathy or pity at all when he ends up as a decoration for the radiator of a garbage truck.
  • Hikari met Yuu Otosaka and befriended him over their similarites. They both lost of their family member (Yuu's sister was killed, while Hikari mistakenly believed her father abandoned her), and those losses led to their despair. She also sympathizes with him over his memory loss, since she couldn't remember the circumstances that led to her depression. She's also proud of him for becoming much kinder and more selfless in his ambitions, even if Yuu couldn't remember what he did and apologized to her for it. She was worried over stealing other people's powers and losing his memories would drive him insane, but hearing that Nao's promise is what allowed him to keep his sanity made her glad he succeeded.
  • Hikari is greatly creeped out by Izaya. She can't understand how anyone would encourage someone to commit suicide before outright saving them, and still claim to love humanity.
  • Hikari greatly sympathizes with Killua, since he wanted something different in life, but his family kept putting pressure on him to be something he doesn't want to be, and he gains a friend willing to come to his aid. At the same time, she's greatly unnerved by the ways Killua killed his enemies before he managed become a kinder person.
    • Hikari also met Gon Freeccs, learning about how his father abandoned him and Gon became a hunter just to meet him and find out why he left him. The abandonment brings up bad memories of when she mistakenly thought her father abandoned her and saw her the same as everyone else did, so hearing that a parent abandoned their own child truly horrifies her to no end. Gon still befriends her and Hikari is appreciative of his kindness, though learning that he dates older women unsettles her, and learning how brutal Gon can be to his enemies frightens her.
  • Hikari stays away from Eric Cartman for his sociopathic behavior. Hearing that he grounded someone's parents into chili nauseates her and makes her fear he might do it to her father if she did something to provoke him.
  • Hikari actually sees a lot of herself in Himoko Toga, who suffered from an abusive childhood due to her abnormality before snapping and giving into her urges, making her the supervillain and serial killer she is today. However, while she does understand her pain, she's still afraid of Toga, especially when she starts calling her a 'friend' while she's trying to taste her blood. She keeps her distance as much as possible.

I am not sure if leaving Hikari's backstory spoilered considering the trope is a good idea, but I guess it isn't that bad.

I remembered that I should add something about Pharah, but I don't know how to word it.

Tsubame Kamoi, Goddess of Comedic Lolicons

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsubame_uzamaid.png
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her rose-pattern eyepatch
  • Theme Song: Tokimeki☆Climax
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Unhealthy Obsession for Little Girls Played for Comedy, Meido, Actually Good at Her Job, Really Ripped, Doesn't Really Realize Why Her Behaviour Is Bad, Goes into Too Much Details, Sometimes Accompanied by "Psycho" Strings
  • Domains: Lolicons, Maids, Cooking, Sewing, Military
  • Allies: Quetzalcoalt (as Lucoa)
  • Enemies: Champ
  • Opposed by: Chris Hansen, Dokuro Mitsukai
  • Tsubame is an ex-JSDF pilot who after leaving the special forces took the job of being a maid to the half-Russian girl Misha after her mother's death. The problem being that she is a hardcore lolicon, being obsessed with cute girls, especially towards "Milady", who she wants to dress up, observe and even maybe marry in the future when she gets close to her. A lot of antics ensue.
  • Upon getting into the Pantheon, she was "dragged aside" by Chris Hansen. He knew that a day like would come someday. What he didn't know was how absolutely oblivious Tsubame is towards her action. She really doesn't realize how creepy her actions are unless someone points individual ones at her (and even that might not help). Heck, she herself hates child predators, when she herself can be considered one. It got to the point that Hansen wanted to just give up and ban her from the Pantheon if it wasn't for the fact that much more depraved individuals were already here.
  • Due of potential Aesop Amnesia she could suffer due of her position, it was eventually decided that she should at the very least follow some guidelines:
    • 1.Do not lay your hands on little girls. This could apply to anyone underage, but she has said in the past that she has no interest on girls who have started menstruating, so it is a moot point.
    • 2. If you were to interact with young girls, she must do it under heavy supervision.
    • 3. No catfishing online. She may use young-looking avatars when playing games, but she cannot pretend she is actually young.
    • 4. No disguises. Most do admit that her "clever disguises" aren't really that great, but she can disguise herself rather well if she wants to.
    • 5. If she sees any pedophiles herself, she must report them immediately. This is kind of community service to her (alongside fixing doors).
    • 6. More of a courtesy thing, but she really should keep her fantasies to herself rather than spout them out.
  • She generally appears ditzy, but she has her serious side. When she was transferred to train guard dogs, she immediately caught their obedience due of her demanding aura. Nowadays she hardly shows that side. One of people who have caused her to become serious is Ryouna due of her reminding her of her former first lieutenant Ukai (mainly her masochism and Delusions of Doghood).
  • Is really good at sewing clothing for girls due of knowing what makes girls cute to her. She makes doll clothing as her main source of income to support her main job. Unfortunately she can't really approach Suigintou, Suiseiseki or Souseiseki. She once tried few things with Medicine Melancholy and got severely poisoned for touching her. Though that just made her think her as an unapproachable flower she can only observe from afar.
  • The reason why she joined the special forces in the first place was because after her military dad died, her mother told her that her father was in the skies now, making her want to become a pilot to hopefully meet him again. Of course that never happened, something which she did come to terms with, and eventually had to leave the special forces due to an eye disease. [Something about Pharah].
    • Speaking about her dad, she thinks that the reason why she likes cute things so much is because she never had that many girly things or hobbies when she was young due of her dad. She doesn't really use it as a proper Freudian Excuse, though.
  • Is sort of a Guest-Star Party Member to Seven Servants due of her wanting to improve her skills as a maid, even if her skills are already really good, especially inn terms of cooking. There are rumours that the reason why she got approved is because some third party is blackmailing Sakuya with discriminating photos in regards to her feelings towards her two mistresses.
  • Miu Matsuoko has been using her to get free access to new cute clothing, as much as she doesn't want to. Tsubame hasn't yet realize that she is being used.
  • Is just absolutely disgusted with Champ due of his raping and killing children. Even hearing his angel comparison with children does not spark her fairy comparison when it comes to girls. She simply wants the clown dead.
  • Dokuro is trying her best for her not to find out about the future where Sakura created a device that could halt women from aging past age 12. Dokuro has tried to kill Tsubame before, but has found her surprisingly hard to kill due of her army training.
  • Has particular interest with Illyasviel since she reminds her of Misha, and she is sort of curious if homunculi menstruate. That being said, she hasn't really tried anything when it comes to Illya, since she feels like she would be cheating on Milady. That, and there is the deal with Heracles being her bodyguard (who sort of reminds Tsubame of Misha's MMO avatar).
  • Seems to be trading notes with Lucoa in terms of how to get close to their significant ones (because who else will?). Tsubame finds Lucoa's methods bold, but she herself prefers more "subtle" methods. No words on what she thinks about how Lucoa operates in maid cafe.
  • Has found herself to be "harassed" by Hammond for some reason. Maybe Misha's hamsters has talked to him about Tsubame's antics?

Kinda doing a check on every house to see what profiles have white background and seeing how to fix it while also removing any case of Examples Are Not Recent.

Repost for the Sibyl System.

The Sibyl System, Divine Representation of Totalitarian Utilitarianism (Sibyl, Chief Joshu Kasei)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sibyl_system_4.png
Spoiler 
  • Potential House: Tyrannical Figures (Leadership)
  • [tup]: 2 (CrimsonShark, SuperWIKI1)
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: A brain in a jar next to a Dominator, Chief Kasei
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil, though it sees itself as Above Good and Evil
  • Portfolio: Wetware CPU, Hive Mind, The Sociopaths, Totalitarian Utilitarianism, Constantly Observing Others
  • Domains: Crime, Psychological Profiling, Job Placement
  • Herald: Non-ascended members of the MWPSB
  • Allies: Big Brother, the Grand United Alliance of Law
  • Evil Counterpart to: The Machine
  • Enemies: Shogo Makishima, Shinya Kogami, Akane Tsunemori, Bruce Wayne/Batman
  • Interested in: Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Judge Dredd
  • Opposed by: A majority of the house of Justice
  • Conflicted Opinion: Sauron, Darkseid
  • Potential recruits for the Sibyl System: All human deities who are The Sociopath, most notably Light Yagami, The Joker, Johan Liebert, Junko Enoshima, Voldemort, Felix, Paul and Peter
  • It was a troubling time when deities all over the Pantheon began getting shot by people claiming to be law enforcement for seemingly no reason. These authority figures turned out to be members of a group called the Ministry of Welfare's Public Safety Bureau (MWPSB), who were operating from a building that had appeared in the House of Leadership, the Pantheon's new temple for the Sibyl System. The head of the MWPSB, Chief Joshu Kasei, later made a statement on the matter, "There are many in the Pantheon who suffer from poor mental stability, or possess an inclination towards performing criminal acts. Some, with the assistance of therapy, may be capable of making the journey to recovery. Others, however, will undoubtedly be judged as beyond redemption and, like a cancerous tumor, must be removed for the sake of society's health as a whole. The Public Safety Bureau is dedicated to protecting the public, using whatever methods are required. That which needs to be done is carried out by those capable. Such is the grace bestowed upon mankind by Sibyl."
    • Batman, curious as to why a computer with seemingly no sentience or sapience would be capable of becoming a deity in the Pantheon, infiltrated the Sibyl System's temple and learned a dark secret of the system's true nature. Since then, he's become determined to bring it down, seeing the system as an enemy of free will. This is a challenge considering how reliant on Sibyl the Public Safety Bureau has become, so he's been working closely with his ally, former Inspector and Enforcer, Shinya Kogami, and current Inspector Akane Tsunemori, both of whom already know Sibyl's secret.
  • The Sibyl System is a network that was developed with the intention of making job placement more efficient. While it continues serve this function, its influence has increased in scope to the point where it effectively runs the whole of 22nd century Japanese society. It does this by monitoring the stress levels and other organic indicators to profile select persons and calculate their predisposition to commit crimes, which is measured as a number known as the Crime Coefficient note . A person's Crime Coefficient is a major part of their Psycho-Pass, and how high it is determines how the agents of the MWPSB, who use special guns known as "Dominators" to scan individuals, is expected to deal with the individual:
    • Under 100: No law enforcement is deemed necessary. The Dominator will remain locked, and will not fire. Unless circumstances change, it is assumed that the scanned person is innocent and cannot commit any crime.
    • 100-299: Anyone 100 or greater is judged a Latent Criminal, regardless of whether or not a crime has actually been committed. The officer holding the Dominator is expected to shoot on sight. If the Crime Coefficient is under 300, the Dominator will switch to Nonlethal Paralyzer, which will cause the person to be paralyzed and knocked out by the shot.
    • 300+: Anyone above 300 is judged to be a serious threat to society, and should be shot on sight. The Dominator will switch to Lethal Eliminator to instantly kill the targeted person.
      • Some individuals with Crime Coefficients in the 100-299 range may be permitted to work with the Public Safety Bureau as "Enforcers", people who are tasked with tracking down other Latent Criminals like themselves and operate under the command of Inspectors, members of the Public Safety Bureau who have Crime Coefficients under 100 who may shoot and knock them out if they act out of line. Although the House of Justice for the most part is against the type of society that the Sibyl System presents, there are those who see the peace and unity attained by law, discipline, and lack of democracy or choice, as well as the mental and physical health of its citizens as an ideal to strive for. Some have even attempted to join the MWPSB, but unfortunately they're not currently hiring. Despite this, Sibyl has made it clear that all Judge Dredd has to do is say the word and a spot as an Enforcer will open up for him immediately.
    • Besides having the ability to scan individuals and communicating Sibyl's judgement to the holder, the Dominators also have a separate function known as Destroy Decomposer, for use against inanimate obstacles and Latent Criminals using heavy armor. Upon being shot, the target will be completely disintegrated. Inorganic deities, including the GUAM, become justifiably tense at the idea of being shot by such a weapon.
    • CLASSIFIED! Sibyl is not managed by an advanced computer system as most believe. In reality, the system is actually run by a Hive Mind composed of human brains in glass jars. These brains come from humans who are unable to be judged by the system, and are dubbed "Criminally Asymptomatic". Once they have determined that a person is criminally asymptomatic, they attempt to recruit the individual by making use of cybernetic bodies, most notably the chief of the MWPSB, Joshu Kasei. They have continued this practice in the Pantheon, attempting to identify certain individuals as Criminally Asymptomatic, but after their attempt to recruit the one known as Shogo Makishima went horribly wrong, they are maintaining greater caution in studying these people before approaching them. Such persons include The Joker, Light Yagami, Johan Liebert, Junko Enoshima, Voldemort, Felix, as well as Paul and Peter.
  • Officers in the MWPSB serving Sibyl have noted peculiarities in the Crime Coefficients of certain deities, mainly those who suffer from severe mental illness or whose brains have been augmented through cybernetics or drug use. Perhaps the most demonstrable of these was Harvey Dent, AKA Two-Face, who has been found to rapidly change from one number to a second one uncontrollably, depending on which of his personalities is dominant i.e. below 100 when the good Harvey Dent is in control, and over 300 when "Big Bad Harv" is.
  • Has a working relationship with Big Brother, one of the few deities that Sibyl respects as close to an equal. They tend to swap technology and ideas for how to make people more dependent on them. Some have even speculated that Sibyl and Big Brother are related somehow.
  • Impressed by Sibyl's ability to accurately profile beings, Yaldabaoth recruited the Sibyl System to the GUAL (with YHVH's permission, of course), where they use their ability to immediately identify worthy applicants for recruitment, increasing the Alliance's enlistment rate by cutting out the need for extensive observation and surveillance before approaching. Sauron, who has a passion for near-perfect order that Sibyl has brought to its society, has enthusiastically discussed with Melkor about offering Sibyl a spot in the GUAE. Darkseid has extended a similar offer to work for him as a double agent in the GUAL like Big Brother, but isn't as avid about it due to already possessing the greater power of the Anti-Life Equation, which can strip individuals of their free will far more effectively than Sibyl can. Sibyl is reluctant to accept either offer, especially considering that both deities' Crime Coefficients are completely off the charts.
  • Although both the Sibyl System and The Machine have the goal of creating a peaceful, crimeless future in the Pantheon, they have opposing ideas of how such a future should be achieved and why. As a result, they have entered something of a divine chess match against each other, as both attempt to manipulate other deities to accomplish their machinations.

I may toy with the possibility of suggesting Masahiro Sakurai to potentially ascend as a possible God, though at the moment, I don't really have a set-in-stone suggestion for a trope, in addition to the Pantheon's higher preference for fictitious characters over Real Life people, since it's more about said characters representing tropes exhibited in their character and world and less about their creators/voices, who've given them life. The closest thing I could even suggest for Sakurai was Trolling Creator, but that role's taken by Andrew Hussie. Though I think considering how often Sakurai loves to tease his audience with fakeout trailers and music utilized in his games -especially in the realm of Super Smash Brothers- he could potentially fit the Teasing Creator trope.

[up][up][up]Sakurai follows a philosophy of "Kirbyism" in his games that basically means games that can appeal to people who have never played a video game before and experienced gamers alike, usually by making the main game really easy but with some hard challenges, so if we have a trope that fits that he would be perfect there. He could also be the god of the Unexpected Character because he's known for including these in Smash (Wii Fit Trainer was even chosen because no one suggested her.)
