Trope Pantheons Discussion

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.

  • Commonly, the leader of a team has to be an experienced one. Sometimes though, due to circumstances pertaining to power levels or other reasons, a rookie takes the mantle, and has to prove their worth to the rest of the team.
  • It's true that the rest of his team are in the far future, but that's nothing the Pantheon can't get around. And so in addition to Erik/Quantum Ranger and the Silver Guardians joining Wes as heralds, the rest of the Time Force Rangers also came, and a happy reunion was had.
  • No, he's not Sky Tate's father. Officer Tate was serving in SPD around the same year as Ransik's attack on Silver Hills, ergo they cannot be the same person.

Mr. Deeds, God of Butlerspace

  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: SCP-662, the bell that summons him
  • Alignment: True Neutral, or whatever the ringer of his bell needs him to be.
  • Portfolio: Basically A Genie in a Bottle, Benevolent Genie, Absolute Loyalty To Whoever Rings The Bell, Will Even Kill People If Asked, Needs To Be Unobserved To Do His Work, No Explanation To How He Does What He Does, Always Comes Back Okay When Killed
  • Domain(s): Bells, Butlers
  • Followers: The Devil King's Butler, Eirote, Hagiyoshi, Discworld Igors, James MacGuiness
  • Relationships with Other Pantheon Deities (only include those who are already on one of the actual pages, and not here in this sandbox)
  • Allies: Whoever summons him
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: Whoever he kills
  • Additional Character Relationships: Members of the Pantheon that have various relationships (examples include Enemy Mine, Vitriolic Best Buds, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, Headbutting Heroes, Friendly Enemy, Friendly Rival, Just Friends, etc.) other than allies, rivals, or enemies.
  • Respected by/Respects:
  • Pitied by/Pities:
  • Opposed by/Opposes:
  • Conflicting Opinion:
  • Notes about your chosen deity
  • Awareness of Mr. Deeds became known during an experiment where he was tasked with performing something that inadvertently required him to be present in the Pantheon proper. An investigation eventually led to the Foundation and to SCP-662. His explicit abilities made him the perfect fit for Butlerspace, as he's a servant who explicitly appears out of nowhere when needed.
    • However, there came a few legal issues. Namely the fact that for the first time in the Pantheon, it's not an SCP of the Foundation that's being ascended (or an employee or a rival organization), but rather a byproduct of one. Also, given the nature of Mr. Deeds, tests had to be made to determine whether or not a location in the sight of an omniscient entity who can see everything everywhere counts as being observed; it's not, as long as where Mr. Deeds will "spawn" is not focused on, otherwise the bell would not have worked at all since the Foundation's ascension to the Pantheon.
  • Arrangements had to be made for his temple to ensure that there is at least one completely unobservable enclosure to guarantee Mr. Deeds's manifestation. At present, SCP-662, which is how Mr. Deeds is summoned, is kept in its red velvet lined case and stored in a High Value Storage locker in the temple when not being utilized for testing or other appropriate activities. Like SCP-261, Foundation staff are on guard to ensure the bell isn't absconded with when used. They're also there to perform regular polishing to avoid tarnish.
  • Mr. Deeds is summoned when SCP-662 is rung, and always addressed the ringer of the bell by their appropriate title and last name, and ask what it is they desire. His knowledge of individuals’ last names and titles is a mystery, as he himself will purport.
    • If the individual is gender-neutral, and holds no royal title or military rank (like King Pendragon (whether it's Artoria or Arthur who summons him) or Commander Shepard), Deeds will use an honorific that matches the commonly perceived gender (or switches between Mr., Ms., or Mrs. between summon periods), along with an apology for his inability to 100 percent determine their gender.
    • If the individual has no surname (such as A2 or Teddie), he will use their single name.
    • If the individual conceivably has a surname that merely isn't known to the public (like Agent G or the Zombieland crew), the surnames he provides will be distorted and unhearable to all except the addressed individual.
  • Most reasonable requests given to Mr. Deeds will result in satisfaction. However, there are limits to what he can do, such as very complex items like sports cars, luxury homes, or personal jets. If he is allowed to leave line of sight and return, he is able to produce smaller, less complex items such as a ham sandwich, a glass of iced tea, or even more luxurious items like caviar or a brick of gold (though only up to 99.14% purity).
    • So far, he's been able to procure the following in Foundation tests: Nearly any conceivable kind of sandwich (except human flesh), beverages of nearly any kind (except human blood, though pig blood was okay, and served still warm), a hand grenade of modern U.S. Military grade, which performed as expected in testing, the board game Monopoly (Mr. Deeds won on the first playthrough), a bouquet of fresh-picked red roses.
  • Mr. Deeds will also perform menial tasks, such as washing vehicles, preparing food, and cleaning bathrooms. If a request is deemed unreasonable or impossible by the butler, he will kindly tell the ringer so, and offer an alternative if one may be had.
    • Among tasks he's performed in Foundation tests: cleaning of cars, dish washing of a day's worth of meals from a cafeteria, trimming of hair (but it turns out that Mr. Deeds is not in fact a very good barber), washing of laundry (and the clothing was found to "fit better" in the user's estimation), assassinations (but not if they're too well guarded and entrenched, and could not or would not give further details).

@ EJ Tails: Since Arusu has the main heroic trope, he could be enemies with archetypical Evil Overlord characters, like Sauron, Darth Darth Sidious, Ganondorf and Lord Voldemort. He would be especially disgusted with Darth Sidious' corruption of Anakin Skywalker, denying Anakin of his heroic destiny and that Voldemort's obsession with immortality led him to create the Horcruxes, one of the darkest types of magic in the Harry Potter universe. At the same time, Arusu could respect Harry Potter for persevering in his mission to destroy Voldemort.


@ Yugi: [tup] for Mogo
@ Clovis: As much as Bowser hates Apokolips, he would express a bit of fondness towards Apokolips, as it would remind him of his own domain. Meanwhile, the heroic Mario deities would feel at home in New Genesis and would help Highfather protect it from Darkseid.

Yes Man, God of Sycophants (PDQ-88b Securitron, Goddamn TV on wheels)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yes_man_fonv.jpg
  • House: Introvert Characterization
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His smiling visage.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Courier's very own sycophant, Nice Guy, But is still cunning mastermind, Extreme Doormat to only the Courier, Named this way for a reason but it's also because the only name to go by, Dissonant Serenity
  • Domain: Jovialness, Trickery, Planning, Sycophants, Pragmatism
  • Followers: Securitron Army
  • Allies: The Courier, Richard Simmons
  • Worries: Robert Edwin House
  • Enemies: The Courier's enemies but especially Father Elijah, Ghengis Khan, Null Sector
  • Hates: Arthur Maxson, Anyone who reminds him of the Great Kahns
  • High Priest: The other Yes Man
  • Yes Man was once a regular Securitron that, after being damaged, was recovered by the Chairmen's Leader Benny for the purpose of usurping House and taking over New Vegas in the coming Second Battle for Hoover Dam. While Yes Man is very much capable of doing so, Benny isn't, and there was the problem of unfinished business with a certain delivery man heading right for him never mind his reputation in the wastes. By chance, and poor programming on Benny's part, Yes Man and the Courier would go on to make their mark through Benny's plans and the Mojave Wasteland would be forever changed... at least, that would be the case in one of the potential outcomes anyways. Indeed, it is ambiguous as to what side the Courier took during the Final Battle but nevertheless Yes Man is happy to serve the Courier in any way he can.
  • He was actually present long before the Courier was and while capable of plotting a takeover, the other gods have taken steps to prevent Yes Man from doing so mostly by telling him not to and isolating him in places like basements and such. There are others however who are looking into taking advantage of him for their own purposes. That was, until the Courier came to the Pantheon themselves and revealed Yes Man had his "Assertiveness" Upgrade already installed on him, meaning the commands told to him by the other denizens was an act ordered by the Courier for a bit of a laugh and any plans by just asking him to help plan things for them was bound to end in failure anyways. Some question the upgrade as proof the Courier went to an independent route for the Mojave Wasteland as such a thing did indeed happen by its end, but this reasoning is flimsy without anything else supporting it.
    • On that note others question what the upgrade entails as it could mean Yes Man is capable of usurping them with his newfound "Assertiveness". The truth is, Yes Man has no plans in undermining his new boss. The Upgrade means he can act independently and run things on his own meaning there won't be anyone like the Courier trying to pull the rug from under their feet like with that oversight during Benny's absence. As a result many deities can attest to seeing the modified Securitron in a number of odd places in the Pantheon, usually running the Courier's other errands. Managing the Courier's inventory, dealing with their allies and enemies both old and new, stockpiling on a number of armaments under people's noses. Those kinds of things. He's quite glad to not be stuck in a dingy basement as his entire world.
  • Yes Man may be programmed as a jolly and overall friendly robot, but one should never forget that said robot is capable of not only playing two of the most powerful factions in the Mojave Wasteland, but also ruining the plans of a Crazy-Prepared Pre-War businessman who's calculations on the timing of when the bombs would drop was off by a day. He also favors the more pragmatic options in situations, in some cases the more brutal ones not unlike something House would do. There's also the fact he's an automaton with a Gatling Laser, a submachine gun, a grenade and even a missile launcher with auto repair never mind a seemingly neverending supply of spare bodies should he be destroyed but considering the general population of the Pantheon, this gets overlooked. Of course, Yes Man plans to remedy this when it comes time for the Courier to enact their own little plans in the future.
    Yes Man: "Well I just can't let everyone else have all the fun now can I? Why not have another huge killer robot into the mix? Or heck, even an army while we're at it. We already have an alliance full of them! And some guys fighting them too! Big world, huh?"
  • Mr House was... not happy when he learned of Yes Man's existence. While Benny's treacherousness came as no surprise to him (no absurd calculations needed for that) the very fact that he's pretty much a phantom in his network and also has access to his own Securitron army is indeed a cause for concern. Even if the relationship between him and the package Courier remains ambiguous but not openly hostile. Not helping in this instance is the fact that Yes Man is seen around the Courier in their more dubious moments, usually when said moments involves some tech support. Yes Man reciprocates the very negative feelings. But with only the good vibes he brings out.
    Yes Man: "I don't like Mr. House one bit! No wonder the good guys want to kill him and take his stuff!"
    • As the Courier's enemies are his enemies as well neither they are any happy with Yes Man's ascension as it means one more ally of theirs is up and against them. Father Elijah seems especially angry as something potentially sophisticated as Yes Man is in the hands of some package Courier and not him. Yes Man meanwhile could only "aah" at the realization of why the Courier specifically chose to bury him in the Sierra Madre's vault.
  • Incapable of any form of anger or rage, due to how he was programmed, and while he does not mind said programming there are times where he wants to be angry but just... just can't. Like when your boss blows up the large army beneath everyone's feet, meaning they are going to try and issue a take over without any back up to speak of. At best it's just Angrish and making huge leaps and bounds in logic to make some amount of sense of such poor decisions. That said, he doesn't mind the jovial persona even when referring to some people he personally doesn't like.
    • And speaking of people he personally doesn't like, he's a bit more irate when the Brotherhood of Steel is brought up in conversation. Understandable given their reputation and stance when it comes to technology, especially with Arthur Maxson at the helm in the Pantheon where they are much more aggressive than previous iterations. He's made it clear time and time again he doesn't want them around anymore.
    • Yes Man appears to also hate Ghenghis Kahn, likely as a carryover for his Irrational Hatred for the faction in the Wasteland known as the Great Kahns. Its irrational in the fact that Benny hated them and the robot is only just copying his opinions on them. Yes Man had made it clear he wouldn't mind if Ghenghis' temple suddenly and unfortunately exploded one day. Or if he was filled with lead. Or vaporized in the epicenter of a bomb. On that note, anyone who reminds him of the Kahns gets similar comments and views.
  • Yes Man considers Richard Simmons of the Red Team a friend of his due to his role as the group resident Professional Butt-Kisser. Simmons thinks he's exaggerating, now being a far cry from immediately sucking up the Sarge and whatever orders he barks out but Yes Man was still insistent he can at least relate experiences. "I guess," was Simmons' reply. He at least is capable of not putting up with the more insane plans unlike Yes Man, whom Simmons still finds the most passive robot ever (of all time!).
  • Null Sector in their goals of growing their strength sought out Yes Man to join their cause. When he, politely, refused through sending a predictably friendly letter they instead were enraged and sent over troops to take him and the Securitron army he leads by force. Alive or dead. The attacking forces were then in for a surprise when during the journey to Yes Man's temple they were greeted by some of the enemies they made in the Pantheon, in part to Yes Man tipping off the request made to him along with the approximate calculations of their mobilizations and arrival upon refusal.
  • "Hey! Hi there, good to meet you! What can I do for you today?"

Before I release my current draft of Arusu, do you believe that Arusu, as the hero that he is, would be enemies with Junko since she is the despair inducing mastermind? She may not be an Evil Overlord, but Arusu would be scared to think if Junko had evil powers, like Dragon Quest VIII with its Artifact of Doom

Whoops. Forgot I had to propose first. I got Wes's profile from n3xus, which used to have his Sentai counterpart as a co-god, but I changed it due to our policy against that.

As for Mr. Deeds, either I forgot or I actually haven't proposed him yet. Sorry again.

On another tangent, do you think It's put too much meta on my profiles? Hotman X 32 on the Discord thread seems to think I do it too much.

Here it is, my newest version of the Arusu rework, may not be the last, but considering all the work I put in, ideas I came with and the suggestions I was given, I hope this is a great one. [tup] if it's ready

Feedback Mode

Arusu, God of Legendary Heroes and Heroic Lineages (Erdrick, Loto, Roto, Hero, Three, Arus, Insert Name Here, The Legendary Hero)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ssbu_heroiii.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A stylized bird of prey, the symbol on his shield
  • Theme Song: Adventure
  • Alignment: Lawful Good in manner, politics, and tactics, with forays into Chaotic Good whenever he sees something valuable
  • Portfolio: THE Hero of Dragon Quest fame, been known by many names, woke up to see the king to be given his father's quest on his birthday, Magic Knight, Playing with Fire, Shock and Awe, Legendary Heroes, Ancestral Weapons, Heroic Lineage, always be called as a son, had an adventure before the first two games
  • Domain: Heroism, War, Legends
  • Heralds: The Scion of Erdrick, The Prince of Midenhall, The Luminary
  • High Priest: Carrot Ironfoundersson
  • Followers: Maxim, Leonhardt Ragnal
  • Allies: Eight, Nine, Link, Robin (the tactician), Goku, Superman, Spider-Man, Mario, Sora, Harry Potter
  • Rivals: Warrior of Light, Rimuru Tempest
  • Enemies: Galeem and Dharkon, Bowser and other Evil Dragons, Darth Sidious, Voldemort, Ganondorf, Xehanort, Junko Enoshima
  • 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 Godbird 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 absolutely dislikes Evil Overlords. With Darth Sidious, he was disgusted on how he corrupted Anakin Skywalker by manipulating his destiny. He also had this feeling with Voldemort, with how on his way to seek immortality, it created dark magic.
    • At the same time, he respects Harry Potter for having the mission to bring him down.
  • With Ganondorf, his countless motives to conquer or destroy Hyrule reminds him of how his villains seek to conquer the lands.
  • 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 Arusu has sympathy for. Sora. Arusu feels bad for Sora for going through tough trials and tribulations, such as losing Kairi during the second Keyblade War, but he praises Sora for being selfless by sacrificing his own life to save her, as well as using his light in his heart to save his friends, and he would consider him a great hero next to Mario and Link.
    • That being said, he is not fond of Xehanort and how he seeked darkness against the light. Even though Arusu knows that Xehanort wanted to use Kingdom Hearts to wipe clean the world from evil and end the endless war between light and darkness, it doesn't excuse the fact that he was the one that started the chaos all over again with Terra, Ventus and Aqua.
  • And then there's Junko. Oh goodness, he absolutely despises Junko. She may not be an evil overlord or monster like his other enemies, but the fact that she leaves chaos even after her first killing game is what made him ticked. But the breaking point is that Junko is obsessed with despair and spreads it just for fun. She may be human, but Arusu shakes in fear in thought of what happens if she had evil powers like the other villains that he knows...
  • 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] You are basically offending a giant Toku fan who goes to spectate on this forum and is one of the only people in the world who likes Metal Heroes. I'm saying you're gonna step on a landmine, man.

N3xus does have a profile for the Space Sheriffs getting Space Police, if you're curious.

@ Mattman, wootzits: Little from column A, little from column B. I wouldn't plan on adding from future/past gens unless it's a major Pokemon or a very good example of the trope. You know what, maybe someone could ask for their god choice to replace a Pokemon, and give reasoning for why they are the superior holder of that trope

If I'm being honest, this whole list made by RJ sounds like a huge overreaction on their part. Like instantly someone has a problem with the amount of Pokémon there are suddenly they start to panic or something.
