Trope Pantheons Discussion

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.
  • Don't repost a profile in the forums more than twice in a day if noticeable changes haven't been made in between. If a profile is posted a third time in a row without noticeable alterations, it will be downvoted. This is so spamming of no-effort profiles is less frequent and to prevent tropers from getting aggravated seeing the same profile over and over. The minimum acceptable change has to be a single flavour text.

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

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

    Deity Template 
Template for adding a new deity:

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

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

Suggestions for Kayaba?

Prototype mode

Kayaba/Heathcliff]] Akihiko Kayaba, The Game Master God (Heathcliff, Commander, The Strongest Man, The Living Legend, The Paladin, The Crimson Knight, The Game Master of Death, SAO's Char Aznable, Master of the Cyberverse)
As the Game Master 
  • The other good-aligned SAO deities never experienced the horrors of his death game but had to deal with its resultant fallout, so they aren't exactly thanking him for that. LLENN stands out as her friend Pitohui entered severe depression over not logging in to SAO on the day the players were trapped in the game and missing out on the fun.
  • Kayaba has had a hand in the origins of nearly every person that has menaced Kirito and his friends due to creating the means of their crimes in the first place, and he has made it a personal goal of his to make them see the light of virtual reality and that it was created with the good of the populace in mind, not for evil purposes such as mind control and warfare.
    • Nobuyuki Sugou has long been Kayaba's bitter rival since their university days, and was extremely critical of his detached nature. He also courted his girlfriend a few times to disturbing effect. Kayaba is incredulous at how Sugou has failed to learn from his past mistakes and continued to use mind-control technology for his own ends. And for a terrorist organization no less! Kayaba has nursed thoughts of talking to him but has shelved the idea after seeing the many atrocities he has committed in the name of SHOCKER alongside other depraved individuals. He had quite a few words to say about this:
    Kayaba: Sugou always believed that I was being too close-minded with my vision. He kept telling me FullDive technology had far more potential than I thought it had. While I shrugged it off because I was too focused on my dream, perhaps he was right. If only I knew then that I was talking to a Complete Monster with no regard for the sanctity of free will. And now that monster is working for people worse than I can imagine...
    • He never got to meet her personally in his homeworld, but with the knowledge that Quinella was spawned from the whims of a JSDF agent, he isn't at all surprised at how twisted she turned out. Nevertheless, he created the floating castle of Aincrad (aside from the fact that it was a death game) as a world for players to roam freely and enjoy themselves, hence he views Quinella's tightly-controlled world built to worship her and her alone as the utter perversion of what a virtual world ought to be. Quinella would thank Kayaba for being the inspiration for her creation and that of her fellow bottom-up AIs, just as long he swears fealty to her as a new Integrity Knight. Needless to say, that's not happening.
  • This hardened Kayaba's resolve to return to his roots and further his study of the virtual world. His temple is a giant gaming laboratory of sorts, though his real place of residence in the Pantheon is in a more remote location far from the vicinity. When not working on what he does best, he can be seen contemplating and reflecting with his girlfriend, herald, and unintentional partner-in-crime Rinko, who attends to his every need. She admits that her partner is detached somewhat, but does have a soul. They never go to the House of Love for dates or anything, nor engage in public displays of affection. Most of their devotion to each other is expressed in their mutual passion in furthering the growth of the VRMMO genre and for them, that's enough.
  • Due to his flawed sense of morality, he has no qualms about rubbing shoulders with more morally dubious deities. One is Two-Face, whose more evil side served as his assigned lawyer during the court case. Once programmed a trip down memory lane for Harvey in a personalized Soul Translator, in hopes that seeing the many bad choices he made and all the alternative paths he could have chosen could bring him a peace of mind and re-unify his split halves. Kayaba was very hopeful that this would allow Harvey to attempt living on his own terms again instead of by pure chance. Surprisingly, the experience proved therapeutic for him, and when asked whether it helped, Harvey said 'I'll think about it'.
  • Whether grudging or sincerely, every member of the House of Technology and Gaming looks up to him for his tireless efforts to improve VR technology and devices

  • Unsurprisingly, he's fought against knightly beings in the likes of King Arthur, Arturia Pendragon, Link, Alm, Celica, Lucina, Ike and many more. His greatest challenge comes from Artix von Krieger whose chivalry and reputation reminds Archaon a lot about Sigmar. He reciprocates by calling Artix a Worthy Opponent above all else. While he is understandably opposed by most Keyblade Wielders, Archaon respects Sora, Aqua and Roxas, stating that they are able to give him a difficult time, yet also remind him of the good old days at the same time. And due to his ability to oversee prophecies and the future, he sees Shulk as a noteworthy foe. That said, he is more than ready to kill any of them if need be.
In every world, once you die, you're gone.

To avoid having to remove any Assassin's Creed Gods, couldn’t we just group some of them together under Assassins with Ezio? I think I remember some asking for any ideas for grouping about a week or two. It would give us a chance to ascend other gods, and we wouldn’t have to find other titles to ascend any assassins. And we could just edit a new character, assuming they’re actually a member of the creed.

I’m behind on the franchise so I don’t know much of the new characters.

So, regarding Shining Goodness, can someone (since I allegedly shouldn't) work on the Shining Force for it, or is it better in the hooves of Shining Armor, leaving Names to Trust Immediately free for someone else? I think Names to Trust Immediately has plenty of potential alternatives if ascending the Shining Force is a bad idea.

I'll start up a profile just in case.

Excessive-Menace is against reworking Shining Armor, but what do the rest of you think?

[up] This is my take on the matter: Grouping sometimes proves detrimental to a character's profile as it means diluting their Pantheon characterization by grouping them together. Things like grouping the Persona deities actually made the combined profile look better without squandering individual detail. It remains to be seen whether a similarly good level of detail will be maintained with an A.C. grouping.

Good grouping: Reiner, Bertolt and Annie (Warrior Titans)

Bad grouping: Eren, Mikasa and Sasha (Survey Corps)

No the assassins shouldn't be grouped and leave at that. It was just one user lashing out while most of us are simply neutral on the subject. There isn't really an overflow of AC profiles so need to crack down on them. Once they reach the hundred mark like Pokemon do franchises do become a problem

@Kayaba - You have a section of the profile containing a paragraph that's from Archaon. HOW DARE YOU PLAGIARIZE ME!!!

Anyway, now that I've seen it, Kayaba is not going to have a good relationship with Archaon, what with his Destroy the World Mindset, though Kayaba might see him as a Worthy Opponent on his end. About my copied paragraph, I'm guessing you're having it as something to reword in your own accord, which I'm cool with.

Also, probably he could be met with some disdain from Elliot, after finding out his ambitions did kill a lot of people.

To add a little to the previous topic, I'd much rather avoid any kind of conflict based on whether or not we have "too many" characters from singular franchises, as that's VERY subjective and would more likely than not just turn the forum into a warzone which would ruin the fun for everybody.

Popular franchises are pretty much guaranteed to have a large number of characters in the pantheon, as they tend to stick out more. That's not me arguing that they should be included for that reason, it's just a basic fact as demonstrated by the large number of ascenscions from Pokémon, Kamen Rider, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, etc.

If a trope fits and the forum approves, I don't see any reason to not include them. If a character doen't fit their trope, then explain why, if a better candidate exists, present them. Otherwise, we just end up with needless purges which could potentially result in more work later down the line, like how I saved the character profiles from Queen's Blade and am currently planning to rework them.

All this arguing just makes me want to get three ideas off my chest:

  • Francoeur from A Monster in Paris for Cute Monster: Francoeur is a flea that turned seven feet tall due to a freak lab accident. However, he has a friendly and harmless personality and anthropomorphized features, plus he can't talk but can sing. All this makes him a very adorable flea monster.
  • Shadow, Chance and Sassy from Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey for Tropey, Come Home: The three are a family's pets that are left in a farm when the family moves to the city. They escape the farm and travel miles across mountains and forests to get back to their owners.
  • Pi and Richard Parker from Life of Pi for Lost at Sea: A boy and tiger duo who get shipwrecked in the Pacific Ocean. The story details how they survive for more than two hundred days in a little lifeboat until they reach the American coast.

[up][up][up] I really agree but don't have anything else to add, so take a [awesome]

[up][up] [tup] for Francoeur

I understand it would've been hell to model, but Kirby with the entirety of Seph's hair just dragging behind him would be a sight to behold

[up][up]She could potentially take Timmy in a Well, or This Index Barks if it comes to that (I think she's an important enough character to justify taking it).

Note that I couldn't work on Lassie.

@Wikia: Snoopy is already up and he's not the Trope Namer. Not to mention he only did that like, once in a long career of doing a variety of things.

Update on the Wolf Man so far.

Lawrence Stewart Talbot, Cursed God of Wolf Men (Larry, The Wolf Man, Mr. Talbot)
Larry (left) and his wolf man form (right).
  • Adopted from: Whirl RX
  • Demigod. Lesser as the wolf man.
  • Symbol: A cane with a silver wolf head with a pentagram
  • Theme Song: This
  • Alignment: True Neutral. Chaotic Evil as the wolf man.
  • Portfolio: Doomed Protagonist, Stalker with a Crush, Tragic Monster, The Charmer
  • Domains: Curses, Beasts, Tragedy, Werewolves
  • Allies: Bruce Banner, Jon Talbain, Greymane, Remus Lupin
  • Enemies: Count Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, Godzilla (?), Fenrir Greyback
  • Larry Talbot was a practical man returning to his homeland at Llyanwelly to reconcile with his father. Everything seemed to be going well, until he got bitten in the chest by a wolf. As it turned out, that was the local werewolf, and now Larry carried that curse. Since then, he has been struggling with the beast within as he looks to lift the curse.
  • Reports of a werewolf attack have spread in a local village in the Pantheon with some people initially assuming that the attacker is an animal. This led the Pantheonic Police to investigate. Upon looking at the attacker’s footprints, it is revealed that he is the Wolf Man, who was spotted and captured by the cops who were armed with shotguns that shoot silver bullets. Once the Wolf Man reverted to his human form, they were debates on what to do with him. However, they come to the conclusion that as one of the most recognizable werewolves in fiction, he was chosen to represent Wolf Man.
  • Unfortunately for Larry, he is still suffering from lycanthropy and will transform into the beast. Luckily, well, as lucky as he can get, the transformation is very infrequent and far apart. He can also take solace that even if he does transform, there are plenty of people who could take care of him. As in life, he is trying to find a cure for him infliction.
  • As far as his interactions with other werewolves go, he seems to get along with Remus John Lupin, whom he sympathizes with for how much he’s had to rein in his instincts and causes his wolf form to be hairless and emaciated. Sometimes, Lupin supplies Larry with Wolfsbane potion to help him out. He is also on good terms with both John Talbain and Greymane. However, he doesn’t like Fenrir Greyback for turning Lupin into a werewolf and seeking to convert as many as he can.
  • Has made friends with Dr. Bruce Banner after learning of the Hulk and how their situation are very similar. While he has heard of Hulk's rampage, he also learned that it's heroic and more sympathetic. Larry bemoans that there is no way that his wolf self can ever be considered a hero.
  • There has been rumors going around that the wolf man fought against Godzilla in a situation very similar to Frankenstein's Monster and Baragon. However, few believe in these rumors and that if Godzilla really fought the wolf man, it might have been just a radiated wolf.

Hello, my baby. Hello, my honey. Hello, my ragtime gal.

[up]I think Imhotep can be added as an enemy.

@wootzits I found that Snoopy is already in the pantheon and I agree with your suggestion for Lassie, so [tup] for Shadow, Chance and Sassy.
