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.

    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.

No biblical jesus.

As i said, i'm fine with a South Park and an amalgamation of other tasteful media depictions but not the biblical. Notice that the "God" we have is just a show's version of him.

Speaking of Faith stuff, do you think the Great Triad in FAITH should get a name change to indicate they are the bad faith people? I was thinking Sinful.

Also YHVH trope is God Is Evil but its written as Absolute Lawmaker which doesn't make sens.

[up] She's not in anybody's sandbox or anything. And she's a pretty good example of the trope.

Here's the second post for Mogo.

Mogo, Divine Sentient Planet (The Living Planet, Sector 2261.142.M)
  • House Change: None (Planetary & Celestial)
  • Rank: Greater God
  • Symbol: A giant Green Lantern Corp symbol composed in foliage
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Beautiful Scenery, Living Planet, Having the Souls of a Man and Woman, Not Very Sociable, Mogo-Shattering Kaboom, Pleasure Planet
  • Domains: Power, Plants, Mountains, Rivers, Power, Willpower
  • Herald: His current partner in guarding Sector 2261, Mother Mercy
  • High Priest: Ego, the Living Planet
  • Followers: Solaris, Gaia, Torkulon
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Krona, Parallax, Unicron, Galactus, Nekron, Black Hand, and the Black Lanterns, Sinestro, The Grox, Hexxus, Chairman Drek, Evolto, Tyranids, Mongul, Hank Henshaw
  • Of Interest to: The House of Love
  • Interested in: All Good-aligned Determinators (notably Naruto Uzumaki, Pegasus Seiya, Undyne the Undying, Goku, Link)
  • Good Counterpart to: SCP-1548
  • Opposes: The Incubators, High Councilor Kal-El,
  • Wary of: Dragon Ball Villains, Tuska
  • Conflicting Opinion: Samus Aran
  • Mogo the Living Planet is the Green Lantern of Sector 2261, and the most powerful Green Lantern in the entire corp. In one of the few cases in which a Deity is its own domain, Mogo is a planet, and so does not have a proper place in the actual Pantheon. If he did, his gravitational pull would destroy the Pantheon, which is why Mogo doesn't socialize much.
    • When he has to, Mogo can use much smaller holograms to interact with beings in other parts of the Pantheon under assumed names. Those Deities who have met these holograms rarely realize who it actually is they're talking to. Although he does make appearances in "person" in very special and dire circumstances.
    • He, like all Green Lanterns, has a lot of animosity towards Krona, Parallax, and Nekron, especially after the former two corrupted and took control of him to take over the rest of the corp.
  • When a Green Lantern dies, Mogo is the one responsible for choosing their ring's successor and guides the ring to them. Without him, the rings are directionless. As such, he considers all the Green Lanterns in the Pantheon to be worthy allies, as he's the one that picked them to be Green Lanterns in the first place. This has put him at odds with the Incubators, who also choose to give powers to people who have certain qualities in order to get them to join a group that's purpose is to fight evil. However, unlike the Incubators, Mogo doesn't make deals or withhold information from those he picks (at least, not intentionally) to trick them into joining the Green Lanterns.
    • As the one who chooses new Green Lanterns, Mogo has observed a number of deities in the Pantheon who show remarkable ability to overcome great fear and as such could make worthy Green Lanterns should a ring become available. Apart from Luke Skywalker, whose impression on Mogo is detailed below, such notable candidates include Naruto Uzumaki, Pegasus Seiya, Undyne, Goku and Link.
    • In the 31st Century, Mogo will have died, and lacking another way to distribute rings to new owners to recruit new members, the Green Lantern Corp will eventually die with him. When Rosalina heard about this from her Lumas, she enlisted the House of Time and Space to try to avert this fate, but only time will tell if they are successful.
  • Sometimes likes to assist Team Lightyear and the Guardians of the Galaxy on a consultant basis, likening Star Command and the Guardians of the Galaxy to the Green Lanterns, as they're both groups of Space Cops and people focused on protecting their galaxy, respectively.
  • Because of his serene and kind nature, many Deities have visited Mogo to train or find a moment of peace. One of his most well-known attributes is his ability to conjure up the images of anybody's deceased loved ones so that they may be able to move one. He has also been known to help anybody with problems they may have, acting as a sort of therapist. Even Rosalina allows him to babysit her Lumas on occasion. On the other hand, this makes him greatly opposed to his antithesis, SCP-1548, the Hateful Star. Mogo has often taken it upon himself to help protect Earth by preventing the star from crashing into it.
    • It's even been reported that certain Gods and Goddesses, such as John Carter, have gone to him as a sort of "romantic getaway". Since Mogo is actually composed of the consciousnesses of a mated male and female, he's surprisingly good at romance. His unique romantic situation has made him a welcome subject of interest of the House of Love. Which is ironic, since he doesn't socialize.
    • Wander and Sylvia were taken aback when they landed on Mogo and discovered he could talk to them. Sylvia was slightly unnerved of him due to having met another living planet named Janet who... was a little crazy for Wander, but after Wander gave him a chance, she ended up warming up to him after he clarified that he wasn't in any way looking for romance, nor did he know any "Janet"... not all living celestial bodies know each other, after all.
  • Doesn't like Mongul very much. Not only did his son, Mongul II, kill his previous partner, the insect-sized Bzzd, but the original is well-known for his corrupt use of the Black Mercy, which was created by his current partner Mother Mercy, against Superman.
  • Mogo is happy to harbor other alien species on him, changing his biosphere to accomodate their needs and developing symbiotic relationships with them if possible. In the unfortunate circumstance that the actual Houses of Extraterrestrials or Beasts should become unserviceable for whatever reason, many have suggested that Mogo could take their place. Because of this, Mogo has had to fight off numerous attempts by the Grox to hunt him down and eliminate him and the species that take refuge upon him.
    • One of the more notable of these relationships he has is with some space dolphins that live on his planet, as they eat yellow space debris that Mogo is unable to deal with effectively due to their color. What makes this relationship interesting is where Mogo got the dolphins from. After purchasing them from the intergalactic broker Manga Khan, Lobo attempted to retrieve them as it turned out they had actually belonged to him (Lobo cares a surprising amount for his space dolphins...). However, after seeing how happy they were living on Mogo and how good Mogo was to them, he reluctantly let them stay. Fortunately, Mogo allows him to visit them whenever he wants, so all parties are pretty happy with the deal.
    • When Hal Jordan was having a difficult time figuring out how he should deal with some Xenomorphs and didn't want to just kill them due to seeing them as just animals, he brought them to Mogo to live on. Although Kyle ended up destroying them years later, Mogo has allowed the Xenomorphs and Facehuggers in the Pantheon to live on him again, as he's best suited for keeping them from hurting others.
    • The Blorg Commonality loves living on Mogo, as not only is Mogo extremely friendly to them, but it gives them the opportunity to meet and befriend all the other alien species that inhabit Mogo as well.
    • In addition, he enjoys having small animals like Chip and Dale visit his surface, and even leaves his Green Lantern ring hanging on a tree branch for them to play with.
  • Many beings have attempted to destroy Mogo before. Some have succeeded, while others have failed. No matter the outcome, Mogo never takes such attempts kindly. Even though Mogo can pull himself back together, it's a very long process. For this reason, he tries to avoid villains from Dragon Ball, as they have a habit of destroying planets, although he will fight them if necessary.
    • Mogo was the first to discover the Harvesters when they attacked him after entering the Pantheon, and even with the help of the Green Lantern Corps, Mogo would have likely been killed in the assault had it not been for the timely arrival of Luke Skywalker, who managed to fly into the heart of the Mothership and destroy it. Mogo is considering returning the favor by making Luke a new Green Lantern, but as of yet no rings have been made available.
    • Chairman Drek once had a Deplanetizer built on Mogo's surface, but found that progress for it was advancing slowly for it for seemingly no understandable reason... until Drek realized the planet was actually alive and subtly messing with the machine. When he opted to team up with the Emperor to build it in space instead, Mogo simply blew it up with a beam of green energy. Since then, Drek and Mogo have been at war with each other, with Drek repeatedly trying to destroy him, while Mogo has taken it upon himself to enforce Drek's ban from the House of Nature.
    • Once they learned of the Living Planet's existence, both Unicron and Galactus raced to consume him first. Unfortunately, the two underestimated Mogo's power (not to mention the fact that they were fighting each other for it at the same time) and were injured in their battle. What none of them had realized was that Evolto, curious to know what would happen if a sentient planet connected to the Green Lantern energy were destroyed, had been the one to inform the two planet eaters of Mogo in the first place in a bid to weaken Mogo so he could finish him off. Their subsequent fight still lasted for hours before Superman, Wonder Woman, and Primus arrived to assist Mogo.
    • On a separate occasion, the Tyranids tried to raze him to the ground. Mogo once again managed to repel them, this time with the help of Optimus Prime and the Avatars Aang and Korra.
    • Although Tuska was of a lesser Rank then the Living Planet, she possessed a quality that gave her an edge against Mogo that none of the previous would-be destroyers could boast: a barrier made up of a special substance known as Anima Mundi, which shielded her from the energy-based attacks of the Green Lanterns. With this decisive advantage, Tuska managed to be the first in the Pantheon to succeed in destroying and devouring Mogo, although with some help Mogo (and, more importantly to him, the souls that live on him) was able to be rescued, the experience has left him with an almost crippling fear of the entity. Although, as a Green Lantern, he will never fail to fight her if necessary, he does a lot to try to avoid it being necessary...
    • In High Councilor Kal-El's alternate universe, the alternate version of Mogo was involved in an attempt by the alternate Green Lanterns to stop Kal-El's take-over of Earth, but was demolished after the High Councilor-to-be became a Yellow Lantern for a time. When the regular Mogo heard about this little piece of history, he was understandably displeased with the High Councilor, though they have yet to meet officially. Y'know, since he doesn't socialize.
    • Despite the fact that he hasn't met her in "person" (he's met her as a hologram, but she never realized it) either, Samus Aran is forbidden from ever setting foot on Mogo because of her well-known tendency to blow up planets.
  • Was targeted by Hexxus, who attacked his core and caused the entire ecosystem of the planet to become polluted. Reminded of a time when another species had polluted his environment while he was unconscious, Mogo was enraged and countered this with the help of Captain Planet, driving Hexxus out of his core. He then trapped Hexxus in a tree... again. While Hexxus eventually escaped, he's learned he's going to have to come up with a better plan if he intends to try something like that again.
  • After the demise of the Guardians of the Universe and Oa, Mogo became the new home base of the Green Lantern Corp. However, after Hank Henshaw corrupted him by hacking the Green Lantern main Power Battery, Mogo was left weakened, so the corp is working on restoring Oa to return to it to allow Mogo to recover.
  • Mogo is also a member of the Nature Preservers in the House of Nature. Many animal and plant species at risk of being endangered, both in the Pantheon and out of it, have been transported to him to keep them safe. As a result, some animals and plants that once originated on other planets can now only be found on Mogo. This, of course, just adds to the reasons for why some Deities like to visit him.
  • Did we mention that Mogo doesn't socialize much?

A repost of my current Arusu rework draft. Tell me what you guys think. I appreciate [tup]'s if it's ready.

Arusu, God of Legendary Heroes and Heroic Lineages (Erdrick, Loto, Roto, Hero, Three, Arus, Insert Name Here, The Legendary Hero)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A stylized bird of prey, the symbol on his shield

  • Enemies: Galeem and Dharkon, Bowser and other Evil Dragons
  • On his 16th birthday, Arusu went out to see the king, and he was given the task to finish his father's quest to defeat Baramos. As he gathered allies to help his on his quest to finish what his father started, Arusu and his allies took down the evil that pledged the world. When Arusu finished his quest, he was given the title of Erdrick, Mightiest of all heroes.
  • For anyone curious, Erdrick is only a title, not a name. You are free to still call him Erdrick, but he prefers Arusu.
  • Most people agree on his outfit, equipment, and personality, but there appears to be some sort of individual-specific perception filter over gender and name. But as of recently, people are more used to seeing Arusu as he is now, as a male.
  • Anyone bearing his blood in their veins has the potential to be a hero capable of slaying the devil himself.
  • Has absolutely no idea where his great grandson found that "Erdrick's Helmet" of his, and stalwartly maintains that he never found nor crafted any such thing, and that it was probably created later to fit the design style of his custom-made legendary armor, shield, and sword.
    • It was as if a million antiques dealers cried out in agony, and were suddenly silenced.
  • Arusu actually has been ascended before, but he simply vanished without anyone noticing he was there to begin with. But he is glad to be back, and he is now given more appreciation for his legacy being more beloved.
    • As he reestablished his temple, he met two other Dragon Quest heroes, Eight] and Nine. Both have heard of his legacy of how he ventured through various lands, and they are more connected with Arusu, as Eight had help from the God bird Empyrea who was actually Ramia, who helped Arusu on his adventure, and Nine had encountered his enemies Baramos and Zoma.
  • Since he is from the time prior the merging of Square Enix, Arusu is rather hesitant to meet any of the Final Fantasy deities. The Warrior of Light was rather welcoming to Arusu, and even though they are all at peace, Arusu does wish to duel with the Warrior of Light when they have the chance, since he sees the Warrior as a worthy rival.
  • What got Arusu curious is that when he isn't called Erdrick, he was also called Goku. Arusu and Goku did meet, and they are rather confused on why Arusu was mistaken for Goku. Goku does know that Arusu has heart, and Arusu notes that he is indeed a mighty warrior.
  • Arusu also met with Crono, who also looks similar to him and Goku. Though it's ironic since that Arusu is from Enix, and Crono is from Square prior to the merger. Crono did share that they share experience of waking up in the morning to start their adventure.
  • Arusu was rather sad since there are no more Blue Slimes.
  • Speaking of slimes, Arusu found a slime that was different than those from his world, and believes it would be easy to take it down, only for it to give him a challenge.
    • When Arusu was tired out, the weird slime was revealed to be Rimuru, and Arusu admits to Rimuru that they fought like a Metal Slime rather than a regular slime. In fact, Arusu said if Rimuru had a crown, then they would be considered a Metal King Slime. But Rimuru would be fine just the way he is. But Rimuru would still love a rematch with Arusu, as long as he remembers to not underestimate him again.
  • Arusu has a history of fighting dragons, and there are plenty of evil dragon deities that fear him considering that he is a famous dragon slayer.
    • Bowser in particular is not afraid to take down Arusu, but he wasn't able to last 3 minutes without him being taken down by a critical hit. Even then, Bowser still doesn't care about Arusu and his title of being a legendary hero.
  • As for Mario, he was given respect by the red plumber. And with Link, they have a very strong bond as if they are connected for a very long time, but neither doesn't know the exact reason. Out of all of anyone who can be considered heroes, Mario and Link are the heroes that Arusu respects the most, and they respect Arusu back.
    • Other heroes including Superman and Spider-Man don't know what to think of Arusu. They think of him as courageous for his quest, and Arusu would love to get to know how they can be heroes in their own ways.
  • And there happens to be one more hero Aurus has sympathy for. Sora. Arusu comments that he feels bad for Sora for going through tough trials and tribulations, such as losing his friends throughout his battles against darkness, but he praises Sora for being selfless and would consider him a great hero next to Mario and Link.
  • Many were anticipating his arrival for a certain tournament, and he made his entrance by saving the Luminary, the one who was the central stage for the invitation, when he was in danger, with the help of Eight and Solo, they all help take down Dharkon's forces. He also had help from the other Dragon Quest heroes, including Nine and his descendants.
  • Believe it or not, Arusu isn't the first hero to be renamed as Erdrick, that honor goes to his possible ancestor, the Luminary, whose story took place before his.

[up][up][up] Are the rest of these examples being dropped because there are far more fitting examples, or because there are too many Pokémon examples?

I just want to know.

So where does Arusu go? A house or the Paragon Quartet?

I mean, I'm ok with keeping Jirachi, Meowstic, Feraligatr, and Decidueye. Fine with dropping everyone else though.

[tup] for Arusu by the way.

@M1gami: King Solomon is in the Pantheon? I don't remember that. I think you meant to say Noah.

Say, IS there a trope that can fit for King Solomon?

I honestly could have sworn that Celebi's deletion was talked about several months earlier. IIRC, a deletion did happen, but the profile was later reinstated since there wasn't a real majority for Celebi's deletion.

@nightelf: He IS in the Pantheon.

@RJ: I can't help but wonder if this insistence of yours in deleting Pokemon is just clearing space for ascending Gen 8 Pokemon when the time comes.

@Super WIKI 1 Since Heroic Lineage was in one of the Heroic Subhouses, I think putting him in two different places in different places in the House of Heroes is a bit redundant. I did want Arusu to be part of the Paragon Quartet.
