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.

Do you guys think enough time has passed from me to bring up the suggestions for Promare?

Angst Nuke for Lio and Firemen Are Hot for Galo?

I the movie, the burnish are people who were regular people but when subjected to extreme or even above normal stress, mutate in people who can start and control a special type of fire. Lio is the leader of the Mad Burnish, a group of Burnish who are labeled as terrorist group ,actually fighting to save other Burnish from experiments and capture and actively try not to get anyone killed. When all the Burnish are capture to be used a fuel essentially and he's left in a volcano with something that will turn heat into ice to trap him, he goes ballistic and manages to break out through his own anger and almost destroys a large city in his rage (all in the form of a giant dragon).

Galo is the main character of Promare, as newest member of the city's fire recuse squad and not isn't the smartest of the bunch, but makes up for it in his muscle, luck, and willingness to rescue people. While he did wear a proper firefighter uniform before the film, but by the time of the actual movie is just wearing the pants and cover over his burned arm from his first rescue, so he's fighting fires shirtless. He basically an expy of Kamina.

  • The first-born son of King Khetep of Khemri, Nagash was enlisted to become a priest for the Mortuary Cult, whereas his younger brother Thutep was enlisted to become king after Khetep's passing. Nagash hated the fact that he was overlooked as a potential ruler out of a birth function and made it a goal to achieve the top of the monarchy by any means. After Khetep was murdered and Thutep became king, Nagash tracked down three Dark Elves who were responsible for his father's death (Whom Nagash didn't care for and was more interested in what killed him). He began to dabble into Black Magic and later killed the Dark Elves after learning and mastering it. Soon after, he killed Thutep by entombing him alive and claimed the position of king, but not before telling his brother that he would be taking his wife and later killing his nephew for nothing other than sadistic satisfaction. He abused Thutep's wife and proved himself to be too self-serving, culminating in creating the Black Pyramid which bankrupted Nehekhara. The other kings of Nehekhara fiercely opposed Nagash, who proceeded to use the Black Pyramid to create necromancy and become its first user, eventually prompting to raise an army of undead. He waged a battle against the people against him and was defeated where he retreated to his sarcophagus while protected by his most loyal servant, Arkhan the Black.
    • Nagash died from exhaustion and malnutrition later on after wandering in the Nehekharian deserts, followed by a verbal beatdown from Thutep. Soon after, Nagash found himself alive again and would encounter the Skaven, whom would later go on to become one of Nagash's greatest enemies. He would also enlist slaves into his service and discover a mountain where he would later establish his own fortress, Nagashizzar. Alongside learning and mastering the use of warpstones, Nagash would craft items he would still use to this day before coming across Queen Neferata, who would work with Nagash to create an elixir, and thus becoming the first vampire, and Alcadizaar the Conquerer who deeply opposed Nagash. After a battle that Nagash lost due to the interference of the vampires, Nagash cursed them to feel pain under sunlight and the loss of feeling basic luxuries in everyday life and then later decided to pay the Skaven to spread poison around the sewers of Nehekhara to kill all of its inhabitants. He finally came up with his ultimate goal: The complete and utter destruction and death of all life in the world for Nagash to summon as undead without free will where only he will dictate freely. Ultimately however, Nagash was slain by Alcazidaar who was freed by terrified Skavens before he too, died from using a sword made of warpstone.
      • He would later return again centuries later, courtesy of his followers and Arkhan, but the sword that Alcadizaar used to kill him before had the additional side-effect of weakening Nagash should he ever be revived. This has been a source of irritation ever since. He would later go on to fight against Sigmar Heldenhammer and die again by his hands before being resurrected again by yet another set of centuries to battle his greatest predecessor, Settra the Imperishable, which by that point, both Nagash and Settra had attained the goal of immortality.
  • Nagash entered the Pantheon after the End Times. And no, he wasn't happy at all after seeing that his plans and goals have been all decimated by Archaon and the Chaos Gods whom opposed the Necromancer as the Chaos Gods are driven by Emotion and that Nagash's end goal would result in the complete eradication of emotion itself. He soon met and struck a deal with Nekron who promised that Nagash would be presented with the opportunity to conquer the Pantheon. While Nekron seemed promising, Nagash however feels as if he should be the ultimate destroyer and leader of the Pantheon, for his pride and ego was swollen beyond all measure. He serves the Grand United Alliance of Destruction as a leading figure, but Nagash is biding his time until he gains enough power to usurp Nekron and take over the GUAD.
    • One of the first actions Nagash did was to discover as many graves as he could before casting his necromantic powers to summon a gigantic army of undead people to use for the GUAD's service.
  • It should be noted that Nagash was once a human who had a great position in Nehekharian society. Unfortunately not only was he too ambitious, but [[The Sociopath he never someone who cared about anybody and severything as a means of advancing himself]]. While he succeeded where Settra left off and achieved immortality, it came with drastic consequences that included the rise of the Undead and vampires. And his dabbling into black magic and the overuse of warpstones took to altering Nagash's appearance before he finally mutating into a skeletal being towering over 15 feet tall and having much of his armor infused into his body. Unlike Settra who despises his looks, Nagash is rather content with it.
  • Nagash is unquestionably one of the most depraved and sadistic beings in the entire Pantheon, his actions matching up among the likes of Yuuki Terumi, Johan Liebert and Griffith, and considering the world he came from, its no exaggeration. His monstrous deeds have ranged from the personal to worldwide and he did all of it either because power was the only thing that mattered or he enjoys people suffering and will not waste any time in tormenting, mocking and torturing anybody he can get his hands on. His unpopular and hated reception is comparable to that of Zamasu, who himself is disgusted by Nagash's actions and thinks of his immortality as a sinful curse, though the Fallen Kai isn't any different from depravity either.
    • Madoka Kaname hates him. She really despises Nagash, which is something given her character, stating that his actions are something only a true madman would do. Several rulers in the Pantheon are justifiably appalled with what Nagash had accomplished and what he wanted to do, in addition to killing off his own people partly due to his frustration and partly because of a kick of enjoyment. His ambition earned him the ire of Guts and his treatment of Thutep, his wife and nephew and his complete apathy about his father's murder made him a sworn enemy of the House of Family.
    • Even a good amount of villains find themselves opposing Nagash. Bowser is direct about his villainy, but he truly loves his son and gains the respect of his followers, and after hearing about Nagash, wanted absolutely nothing to do with him. Vlad von Carstein, himself a king of bloodthirsty vampires opposes the Great Necromancer for treating and disregarding the vampires like trash in addition to his leadership completely contrasting Vlad's stable and surprisingly prosperous reign. Malekith of the Dark Elves thinks of Nagash as a monster who needs to be stopped and hates him just as much as the Chaos Gods. Nagato is disgusted by the lengths that Nagash would go to regarding his end goals and has named him a top enemy in his new organization which includes Bowser and Vlad. Nagash is also opposed by Thanos who feels as if his actions are a mockery of Mistress Death and that the Mad Titan sees him as a threat when it comes to Thanos's affection of Death.
  • One of the most powerful necromancers to ever exist, Nagash is immensely feared throughout the Pantheon, to the extent that even hardened foes are left quivering in fear whenever the Great Necromancer decides to get himself involved in battle. Such fear that can be respected by numerous villains like Shinnok, Alduin and The Lich, who were willing to allow Nagash for an alliance. Nagash has accepted, though he personally sees all of this as a way to potentially weasel his way into a more feared reputation and higher leadership.
  • Thanks to his ego and ambition, Nagash is even more determined to collect more power and become more godly than he currently is now that he has seen how much potential the Pantheon really has. He is seeking to become an Overdeity by any means necessary, even bringing along the Black Pyramid and forcing his undead army to scrounge up any worthy materials, especially warpstones, to accelerate the goal. At the same time, he needs to feign Nekron about the fact that he is collecting items for the GUAD to use, a task that is harder than it sounds and often requires the assistance of Arkhan.
  • Is respected by Yuuki Terumi for what he did to his world's vampires, which Terumi found to be hilarious on his part. Though Nagash doesn't have much to state about Terumi, although he notes his depravity as pretty exceptional. Terumi reciprocates these feelings, though Zamasu is currently trying to convince Terumi to not think too much about the Great Necromancer.
  • Darkseid sees his end goal as pretty respectable on his part, though he has noted that he limited his scope to only his world. The Great Necromancer was intrigued by the lengths that the Lord of Tyranny went through to become a God himself and noted that they're a lot more similar than expected. The two have agreed to a cease-fire as both of them oppose Melkor and the Chaos Gods, but Nagash is also plotting to kill Darkseid once the deal has expired. Archaon serving the Lord of Tyranny was a pestering news, but Nagash will let it slide for now.
  • Privately admits that Settra, the one being who opposes him above everyone else, is one of the only individuals Nagash can bring himself up to respect. Then again, Nagash's immortality and his current state and power wouldn't have been possible if Settra hadn't united Nehekhara and established the Mortuary Cult in search of immortality. Still doesn't change the fact that the two of them are the greatest of enemies.
  • Has been referenced by the Killian Experience as "just a skeleton whom a vampire spent all his money on because he was immortal and bored. And he "didn't live up to the hype". Nagash became furious over the claim, though not because Killian is making fun of him, which Nagash is content with, considering he's practically hated by nearly everyone in the Pantheon, but because the vampire in question is Mannfred von Carstein, whose selfishness and pettiness was the reason The Warhammer World was destroyed and robbed Nagash of all of his efforts. In fact, while Nagash still has Mannfred as his herald, he's not going to be forgiving anytime, because of which the vampire is in hiding until he finds a way to get ascended.
  • Doesn't have much thoughts for Voldemort. Voldemort is impressed by Nagash and his actions, but the Great Necromancer sees him as a disappointment and too small-scaled. Not to mentioned his scope was towards the UK, but mainly a high-school, and he got outsmarted and killed by a bunch of teenagers.
  • Is commended by Molag Bal for his utter and unrelenting depravity and his grand ambition. Nagash himself sees the Harvester of Souls as much better deity than the ones that the Nehekharian people worshiped. Though Nagash would much rather feel that Molag Bal defect Melkor in favor of him (Not Nekron, just him).
  • Set up an invasion in the Pantheon to lay waste upon receiving Nekron's permission and rallying up an alliance with Shinnok, Gul'dan and Count Orlok. He decided to take to personally battling the Puella Magi during which he killed Mami and Kyoko in an effort to break the remaining members's spirits, especially Madoka 's who broke down to uncontrollable tears after receiving too much of Nagash's vicious insults and mocking over her slain friends. He was attacked by Artix Von Krieger whereupon the two engaged in a grueling duel with Nagash mostly having the upper hand. Only with the interference of Settra and Nagato was Nagash finally pushed back. Although he retreated, he snickered in sadistic satisfaction in making Madoka miserable and creating another massive set of casualties for the GUAD to add to their forces.
  • Has formed a rivalry with Arthas Menethil due to their human origins and being the most feared undead figures in their respective worlds. That said, even Arthas wants nothing to do with Nagash. Conversely, Nagash gets along splendidly with Kel'Thuzad due to their omnicidal nature and their affinity to dark magic and necromancy.
  • Has written nine books to detail his necromantic powers and how to learn and master them. These are currently scattered all across the Pantheon to Nagash's annoyance. He's telling Nekron to quickly dispatch troops to retrieve the books so that they aren't used against them.
  • After witnessing and researching Nagash and his powers, Hal Jordan sent an urgent message to the other Lantern Corps to discuss on combating against the Great Necromancer. Sinestro devised that the time has come for the Lantern Corps to strengthen their unity with one another, considering Nagash's alliance with Nekron and that the Lantern Rings should begin to be distributed to potential members of the Pantheon regarding their strong affinity towards a certain emotion. While Larfleeze isn't going to give out any ring (given the Orange Lantern's emotional power), he will accept the alliance as he does agree with Nagash being a threat to the entire Pantheon and to the entire emotional spectrum as a whole.
  • Nagash has developed a recent enmity against Aldia as both of them are subjects to Complete Immortality, but whereas Nagash is dismissive of the entity and would kill it to ensure that he himself is the absolute ruler of the afterlife and the Undead, Aldia thinks Nagash takes what YHVH embodies and adds a sadistic and omnicidal spin to it and is willing enough to make alliances to combat against the Great Necromancer.
  • Has noticed an alternate universe where to his shock, he discovered that the Liche-Priest, Nerutep is actually Thutep who had been assisting Settra and deciphering Nagash's nine books to become the lord of the Black Pyramid, alongside winning Settra's approval. Nagash broke down like never before, mindlessly killing several of his own minions and nearly terraforming a piece of land, learning that once again, he is beneath Thutep. At the same time, this unseen rage has now made Nagash even more determined to destroy the Pantheon and overtake it as its ultimate ruler.
There will be no escape, no blessed oblivion. I can end your life as easily as I can extinguish a candle, and before your corpse is cold, I can reach out and grasp your soul. You will be my slave for all eternity, and I shall laugh at the depths of your pain. Such is the power of Nagash

I hate to say this but I think I'd hold off on using Twelfth Night Adventure altogether. The trope seems virtually indistinguishable from Sweet Polly Oliver and it might get cut because of that sometime in the future.

@Mattman: Happy Birthday!

With Khint and Born in route, time for some other profiles.

Kenji Oja, God of the Big First Choice (The Serpent's Son, Little Dragon, Lord Serpent or Lord Dragon)
  • Lesser God, Dragon!Kenji might reach Intermediate levels
  • Symbol: The Serpent Orb
  • Theme Song: Serpent Attack as Serpent!Kenji, Dragon Warrior as Dragon!Kenji
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (if he takes the Serpent Path) or Neutral Good (if he takes the Dragon path)
  • Portfolio: Wutai Culture, Critical Hit, Campaign-Exclusive, Lightning Bruiser, Sword and Gun, Took a Level in Badass, Unexpected Successor, Training the Peaceful Villagers, Dragons Up the Yin Yang
  • Domain(s): Clans, Choices, Good or Evil
  • Heralds:
  • Followers: Agent Craig Willmore, Kazuki Takemura, Denam Pavel, Trestkon, Michael Tapp, Zheng, Jack Mower
  • Allies: The Commander (depending on their current allegiance)
  • Enemies: Each other and each other's allies, Heartless-summoners such as Master Xehanort
  • Sometimes, at some point in a game, you're required to make an important choice. This choice can affect a lot of things, from as little as available upgrades for the entire game, or even what storyline you'll take (requiring a replay to see it all). Kenji Oja, former exile from the Serpent Clan after being assumed to have killed his father, upon returning to the lands from where he was born, was faced with an important choice; in the midst of bandits raiding a village, who should he side with?
    • The Kenji who helps the bandits would rebuild the Serpent Clan under a tyrannical fist. The Kenji who helps the villagers would start anew as the benevolent Dragon Clan. Since both paths are irreconcilable with one another to ascend as a single person, two Kenjis were ascended as separate entities instead, and both immediately came to blows, disgusted at the other's choice (and disbelief from Serpent!Kenji after the revelation that the Serpent Orb's power and the Dragon are real after all). They were shortly separated by the Court, who had ascended them in the first place.
  • Applies to both Kenjis:
    • Their temples take the form of Serpentholm, remade in their respective images, and facing in opposite directions so as to minimize immediate clashes, mostly instigated by Serpent!Kenji.
    • And supporting the Kenjis as their Heralds are their Zen Masters, essentially hero units. While both Shinja and Otomo served both Kenjis, their ultimate allegiances brought the former to Serpent!Kenji and the latter to Dragon!Kenji. The latter Kenji was glad, given that Otomo dies in both paths, and now they're reunited.
    • Naturally, given their dispositions, Serpent!Kenji joined the GUAE while Dragon!Kenji joined the GUAG. Both Melkor and Cosmos were pleased with their latest additions to their ranks.
    • The Dragon Clan generally disdain firearms (though still use rockets) while the Serpent Clan appreciate and perfect their use. That said, even Dragon!Kenji is not above using them, and can learn to appreciate allies who use such weapons.
    • If there's one thing the two Kenjis have a common opinion on, it's despisal for creatures born from darkness thanks to their (separate) experiences with the Nightvol.
  • Exclusive to Serpent!Kenji:
    • Having a necromancer among his Zen Masters thanks to Shinja, he has no issues working with those who can raise the dead, such as Kel'Thuzad, to achieve his goals. Of course, that just means he won't oppose them on principle; their attitudes can still determine allegiances, such as him merely being on good terms with Arthas (if only because his Scourge are numerous enough to count as a threat).
    • When working alongside the Commander, even if it's proven really effective, he's annoyed whenever the Commander employs him as a damage sponge for the Ronin's Blood Bond (it transfers half the damage a Ronin takes to those they bond with) and keep Fan Geisha around to keep him healthy. It's a very effective strategy, sure, but that means sitting out of the fight. Now if it was some other Zen Master...
    • He's also come to like having Berkut and Charles zi Britannia on his side, even if only to help further his goals. This also goes for Kazuya Mishima and Bowser Jr., fellow evil sons to evil fathers, though he's bewildered by the... dynamic the latter's father has with the Mushroom Kingdom, given he hangs out with them half the time when he's not invading them.
  • Exclusive to Dragon!Kenji:
    • Corrin gets along with him, having had to make a similar big choice, except it was between families who both love them and are good people to certain degrees (even if one family was under an evil king who might've been all but a puppet by this point), and they also had the chance for a third option. Of course, Corrin also shows contempt for Serpent!Kenji due to his cruelty.
    • His potential after unlocking his Ki holds so much light that he poses a great threat to dark entities with weakness to light has marked him as a threat to such deities or those who employ such creatures like Xehanort and Mr. Scratch.
    • As someone who goes against the intentions of their evil father( figure)s (even if posthumously in Kenji's case, as he wasn't actually responsible for his father's death), in addition to Corrin, Dragon!Kenji has become allies with Rock Howard, Zuko, Jin Kazama, and Alucard.

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 Deliveries, 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
  • Allies: Whoever summons him
  • Enemies: Whoever he kills
  • 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 or gender-indeterminate, 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. Said individuals' reactions often vary.
  • 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), and assassinations (but not if they're too well guarded and entrenched, and could not or would not give further details).
  • As a manservant, Mr. Deeds drew the attention of folks with similar lines of work and was summoned on separate occasions by Elenore Baker, Sakuya Izayoi, Alfred Pennyworth, Fiona Mayfield, Hayate Ayasaki, and Sebastian Michaelis.

@Crimson Shark How about these deities as enemies:

  • All the good deities in Naruto, considering how they were forced to fight against many of their friends and family when they were brought back by Kabuto via Edo Tensei.
  • Usalia, whose Arch-Enemy is a necromancer who raised the former's parents as corpses.

@wootzits: I thought one was Played for Laughs while the other was Played for Drama.

[down] It shown that he has a lot of fans in the city, during the first rescue. He's also shirtless throughout most of the movie, implied to not wear any underwear, and kissed a guy in climax of the film. He's wearing way less than what a fireman should wear. I honestlly don't know how many other characters can fit this trope, as it's more than just a good looking character who happens to be a firefighter; he's all about saving others' lives, even if they wronged him.

Happy birthday Mattman.

[tup] for Nagash.

Here's what I got so far for The Celestials and Venom, any other ideas?

The Celestials, Those Who Are Above the Gods (Space Gods, Titans from Space, Star Giants, Makers, Visitors from the sky)
  • Overdieties
  • Potential House:
  • Symbol: Their Metallic Armor
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Cosmic Beings, Created and are Older than Eternity himself and the Eternity before him and the Eternity before that one and about four more Eternities before that one, Above the Gods, Blue and Orange Morality, Precursors, Sufficiently Advanced Alien, Subverting Alien Non-Interference Clause, The Reason why the Marvel Gods left the Earth, Reality Warper, Creators of Powerful Alien Artifacts
  • Domains: Creation, Time, Space, Power, Science
  • Notable Members: One Above All (Not that one), Arishem the Judge, Scathan the Approver, Progenitor, Tiamut The Dreaming Celestial, Jemiah the Analyzer, Gammenon the Gatherer, Eson the Searcher, Exitar the Exterminator, Nezarr the Calculator, Godhead
  • Superiors: The One Above All, The Living Tribunal
  • Allies: Eternity, Apocalypse (whether he likes it or not)
  • Rivals: Uatu The Watcher, The Flood, Rassilon
  • Enemies: The GUAD, Barbatos, All Four of the Chaos Gods, Fused Zamasu, Kronika
  • Opposed by: GALACTUS, The Silver Surfer, Most of the Marvel Multiverse, and The DC Universe, The Doctor
  • Interested in: The House of Genetic Engineering, All Pokemon, Kryptonians, Martians, Saiyans, Namekians, Frieza's race, The Jedi and Sith Order
  • In the vast cosmic landscape, there is a race of beings that are Older than Eternity, more feared than Galactus, more Mysterious than The Watchers, and more powerful than the Gods. They are known by many names. They are The Celestials and they have arrived.
  • When the Celestials had ascended, they were quick to move. Seeing a plane of existence that they had nothing to do with in its making had intrigued them greatly, as did the many races and beings in Pantheon. Such being that have caught their interest and approval were the Kryptonians, Martians, Saiyans, Namekians, Frieza's family, the Pokemon race, and both the Jedi and Sith Order.
  • To the surprise of others, both the Celestial Watcher race has had a long lasting rivalry between them. As both are incredibly knowledgeable and powerful, the two are some of the only beings that could potentially match one another. But due to how one another operates differently, they don’t actually “interact”.
    • Another form of rivalry was developed between the Celestials and the Flood. Both are the precursors of their worlds, existing long before time itself, having been the ones to seed life throughout the universe, with both knowledge and power unmatched by anyone. They even have a habit of eliminating worlds and species that they don’t like. Although they have much in common, they don't however agree with their plans and goals.
  • As when the Celestials had ascended, Kronika was one of the first to greet them. Believing that as both they and she are above the gods, she could for a sort of alliance. Unfortunately due to how she tried to reset their home reality forcing their creator “The One Aboce All” to personally move into action. All she found were a race of incredibly angry Space Gods. When she appeared before them, they didn’t even bother to let her open her mouth before letting her know how they felt about her. But instead of just blasting her into oblivion, what they did was arguably much worse than death. A she absolutely refuses to EVER be near them again.
    • To those who wonder what they did, they placed her into a form of Lotus-Eater Machine. One where her perfect world was nearly realized. The problem? It was only nearly perfect, therefore Kronika reset the timeline to correct the mistake. Only instead of correcting the problem, it only made it worse. She reset the timeline again and again and again and again, each one becoming worse than the last. Eventually she completely gave up and didn’t even try to fix it. But the timeline reset itself either way. It was then when Kronika realized exactly what the Celestials had done to her, nearly driving her mad. Kronika only escaped because they wanted her gone from their domain.
  • As anyone familiar with Galactus's history, it should come to know surprise that he was NOT happy with their ascension. As the ones responsible for the destruction of his home universe, and forcibly turning him into the last of his kind the hate is understandable. He's at least content that he can insure that their race doesn't expand and overrun the universe. As Celestial lay their eggs inside planets, he eats whatever Celestial egg he finds.
    • Besides Galactus, most Marvel Deities were not happy with their arrival. But regardless of how they felt, there was nothing they could do about it. Any time they've tried to battle one they've either lost horribly or survived due to outside interference. The only thing they could do was to warn everyone to STAY! FAR! AWAY! Odin in particular hates. He once battled against them for the protection of the Earth. Donning the Destroyer Armor, Wielding the Odin Sword, empowered by the life force of every Asgardian (except Thor's), while also being aided by two other High Fathers. They never stood a chance. Incidentally, there is also another reason to why Odin hates them, it's because a much younger Odin battled against the Celestials with a team of Prehistoric Avengers. Odin was the only survivor.
    • Many DC Deities weren’t happy either, seeing as they reminded them of the Omega Titans. This similarity was enough to have Brainiac consider making an alliance with the enemy factions, rightfully believing them to be too much for them to handle alone. Unfortunately (and predictably) nobody was willing to compromise. The GUAG wasn’t willing to trust them, the GUAL and GUAE were too arrogant to believe that they needed help, the GUAC didn't really care and actually wanted to see what they were capable of, and the GUAD... well that one’s actually pretty obvious.
  • Speaking of the The GUAD, as they were responsible for shaping the Marvel Multiverse the Celestials have been marked as sworn enemies Necron as his allies. Interestingly enough, this feeling of animosity appears to be mutual on their end, if the branding of weapons are any indication.
  • While others have heeded the warning to stay away, many have ignored such warnings. Zamasu was among one of them. Despising them for their status as neglectful precursors, as it reminds him of how his fellow gods acted. As well as believing them to be responsible for the existence of the various evil and despicable beings in the Marvel Multiverse. He would have been fine with them, as they tend to eliminate anything that doesn't live up to their standards, if however it wasn't for that fact that he refused to believe that anything could be above the gods in any way shape or form. He would eventually go to confront and challenge them, his screams were heard not long after.
  • Given their habits of eradicating entire alien species for not living up to their standards, the Doctor doesn't really have much of a high opinion on the ancient race. But he does understand that they are not ones that should be trifled with.
    • Speaking of Time Lords, due to their vast level of intelligence and power, Rassilon has viewed them as a sort of rival, not wanting to be outdone by anyone, or anything.
  • One if the few gods that were willing to actually seek them out, were the Jedi’s and Sith Lord’s. Believing that they may have been the very same race of precursors of the same name. When they all went to search, they incessantly came at the same time, but before a fight could break through, the Celestials had teleported all of them into their temple. It was at this moment they all immediately understood why the ancient race was so feared. Thankfully they were all given an approval, and left without any injury. Unfortunately while they were uninjured, they were given a haunting vision of a parallel universe, were Jedi are Sith and Sith are Jedi. This had left everyone in an uncomfortable state, they all decided to never speak of it again.
    • The only one to desire to learn more was Darth Vader, having seen a vision of him fully healed in as a Jedi. He went o the only being he knew could understand what he saw, Uatu The Watcher. Uatu explained that what he saw was the world could have been. Vader was shocked to see that actually could have survived his injuries and be in the light once more, potentially more powerful than ever even. Ever since Vader has made many visits to the houses of Time and Space, Health and Diseases, Science and Technology to see how he could become the man in his vision.
  • Like anyone else, The Celestials have a very low opinion on both Barbatos and the four Chaos Gods. Their low opinion escalated to full blown hatred after dark gods pulled a stunt that nearly destroyed all of Pantheon. Tzeentch had convinced the others into trying to amass an army of Celestials from the Dark Multiverse. As the Dark Multiverse is made up of worlds where the worst case scenarios are made real, this went swimmingly for everyone. They summoned an army of Celestials that not only came a world where they overpopulated the universe, but were also infected by The Horde. The first thing these Dark Celestials did was to immediately blast their summoners and run rampant in Pantheon. It wasn't until the Living Tribunal had personally stepped in to stop the chaos did thing finally calm down. This officially made the Celestials enemies to both Barbatos and the four Chaos Gods.

Eddie Brock, God of Terror Heroes (Edward Charles Allan Brock, Venom, Anti-Venom, Toxin II)
As Anti-Venom  
  • Potential House: Heroic Archetypes
  • Rank: Intermediate God with the Venom and Anti-Venom Symbiote, Lesser God without it, potential Greater God after absorbing the Grendel Symbiote
  • Symbol: The Venom Spider Symbol
  • Theme Song: MVCI Theme
  • Portfolio: Arch-Enemy turned Anti-Hero, formerly Ax-Crazy, Horrifying/Terror Hero, Heroic Host, Good Is Not Nice, Never Hurt an Innocent, Unscrupulous Hero, Lethal Protector, Is trying to do better and be better, Had an Abusive Father, Has a son named Dylan
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Domains: Heroism, Darkness, Space, Fatherhood
  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Frank Castle/The Punisher, Nick Fury, Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, Miles Morales/Spider-Man III (one-sided on Miles end)
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: Mary Jane Watson, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat Red Sonja
  • Opposes: Any and all Abusive Parents
  • There's a lot you can say about Eddie Brock, the original Venom. He's insane, dangerous, lethal, scary, but most of all terrifying. Having originally debuted as a villain, Eddie has come a long way in trying to be a hero. There have been a number of bumps in the road, but he's strong progress throughout the years and has become genuinely heroic. After the events of Absolute Carnage, where Spider-Man and Venom had finally managed to bury the hatchet, Spider-Man decided that it was finally time for Eddie to ascend into Pantheon.
  • When Eddie first arrived, there was much debate of what to do with the Venom Symbiote, as both main host are now in Pantheon. It was decided that either one could use the Venom Symbiote while the other used the Anti-Venom Symbiote. While the idea of switching Symbiotes would normally be dangerous and lethal for Venom, if not outright impossible, the Court of the Gods have given them leeway and assured that no harm would come to it as they trade. This became a relief to both Eddie and Flash, as they wouldn't have to fight over Venom and Venom wouldn't have to be forced to make a choice. After settling the debate on what to do with Venom, Eddie immediately went to work, trying to contact anyone who was willing to work with him. Because with the awakening of Knull, Eddie needs as many allies as he can get.
  • One of the first of allies that Eddie was able to acquire was obviously the Venom Symbiote itself, Peter and Flash. Now that Flash and Eddie could talk face to face. Eddie directly told him that he believed Flash to be the better Venom, he managed to make Venom a true hero, and when he died, Eddie felt that he should have been the one to die instead. Needless to say Flash was both shocked and touched. Now that the two can properly work together, they're going to make every second count.
  • Being mostly remembered as a dangerous and insane villain, there are many that are not willing to forgive or trust Eddie. With Nick Fury having registered Venom as one of the top four most dangerous individuals on Earth right next to Doctor Doom, the Red Skull and Magneto. The Symbiote race being The Dreaded throughout the Galaxy, feared by all who know of it. It's been tough.
    • Thankfully, because of the events of Absolute Carnage, there are some Gods who are willing to give him the chance. Some being Captain America, The Hulk, Wolverine, Hawkeye, The Thing and by extension the rest of the Fantastic Four, are giving Eddie a chance. The good Captain being the most welcome and supportive of them all.
    • Two Gods, or more specifically Goddesses, have not forgiven Eddie for his past actions. Mary Jane, for essentially scaring her for life. Felicia, for giving her a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown and mocking her by revealing that Spider-Man was already happily married to someone else. Red Sonja, for fighting against and nearly killing both her and Spider-Man during a crossover. Eddie doesn't blame them, and honestly believes he deserves the hate.
  • Thanks to having been in a Death Battle with a villain named Bane, it didn’t take long for him to come try to take vengeance for the incident. Fortunately Bane was smart enough to bring backup when trying to ambush Eddie. Having successfully convinced General Zod and Deathstroke to aid in his revenge against Eddie. Zod was convinced by Bane that obtaining the Venom Symbiote would make him invincible, and Slade was simply paid to help. While he managed to hold his own for a while, it wasn't until Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman came to his rescue that Bane and the others were driven back. Eddie was genuinely surprised to see some of them. Because the last he met Superman, he nearly killed both him and Spider-Man. Superman and Wonder Woman heard about his reformation, and wish to give him their support, both believe that everyone should be given a chance. Batman on the other hand says that he's just here to keep an eye on him.
  • While Eddie himself doesn't try to involve himself with anything related to Outer Space, he believes that with how the Klyntar are a race of Galactic Protectors he should try to ally with anyone of similar profession. The Guardians of the Galaxy were a great help in this, thanks to their partnership with Flash Thompson. With the help of the Guardians, Eddie was able to form an partnership with Richard Rider, the various Lanterns and to everyone's surprise, the Silver Surfer.
    • Having learned of the Jedi Order, Eddie belied that they would be the best in his preparation against Knull. Knowing that they probably wouldn't be accepting with a formerly insane vigilante with a parasitic alien, he asked if Flash could talk to the Guardians, to talk to Nova, to talk to the Lanterns, to talk to the Jedi to form a potential partnership. They were surprisingly accepting of both him and the Venom Symbiote. Having done their research, they know that while a Symbiote can act as a form of corruption, they themselves are corruptible. Learning that the Klyntar race want to do good, but the strong negative emotions from their host regularly drive them insane. To the Jedi, this is very similar to how they risk joining The Dark Side of the Force, something Eddie knows is much more similar than they realize. Jedi's such as Luke and Anakin Skywalker have been very accepting and supporting of his desire to do and be better. Qui-Gon Jinn, Darth Revan have been supportive in him trying mange both the light and the dark. With becoming allies with the Jedi Order, the Sith Order has made Eddie another enemy. Unlike most of his enemies, Eddie prefers to keep away form them, especially with both Palpatine and Plagueis. Knowing that if someone who's already so close to The Dark Side were to bond with Venom, they'd most likely become completely unstoppable. Eddie especially fears Darth Plagueis, for his dark power over life. Eddie fears that he could potentially create something similar to All-Black the Necrosword if he were to ever get his hands on a symbiote.
  • Like with him and Bane, Eddie has once more met up with someone he battled against, Al Simmons Spawn. Unlike with Bane, the two don't have anything against one another, even with Eddie losing. Both agree that it's better to be allies than enemies.
  • The one god that Eddie wasn't happy to see more than any one else in Pantheon was Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage. (continue)

  • Stephens road to ascension was rather simple. He discovered the Pantheon and willed himself into being a god. Of course, his already loyal fanbase helped out a lot. So much that he was given a second temple for just how easy he can boost the popularity of whatever he discusses. Now, he seeks to clarify the Pledge of Allegiance by rewording it to "One nation under Stephen."
  • As the God of Truthiness, the true nature of his shtick has been widely discussed with in the Pantheon. For some people, he is the real man continuing the act long after the show has ended. For others, he is the personification made real for better or worse. Yet most people would agree that Colbert is downright hilarious to watch.
  • Has long been the archrival of Jon Stewart and The Daily Show. Now only did the two exchange jabs throughout their shows' runs, they also competed for critical acclaim. Colbert prides himself over winning more Emmy awards as well as ascending before Jon. Yet once their shows ended, the two mended bridges and became friends. Colbert even helped Jon Stewart ascend by taking over the role of Satire, a position long sought after by Colbert.
  • He occasionally hosts reports on the efforts of the GUAE and GUAG, encouraging "Colbert Nation" to throw their support behind Melkor. Neither organization can tell whether he's genuine or not. "Look at this guy. Now this is a man who stands for true conservative American ideals."
  • Continuing from his show, Colbert brought back the popular 'Threatdown' segment to highlight the top 5 biggest threats to the Pantheon. The House of Defense largely frowns upon the list. First of all, all the threats he lists appear to be less about the Pantheon in general than about Colbert himself. Second of all, at least one subject is a bear or robot deity, with Bashmaster and Ultron often topping the list.
  • Took the assassination of Captain America hard, so much that he took the shield for himself for the time being. Steve Rogers thanked Colbert upon his return and let the commentator keep a copy of the shield. The superhero believes that under all of that braying is a good man. It's... just extremely hard to find.
  • Not to be outdone, Aragon handed Colbert a copy of Andúril. Instead, Colbert referred it to as a 'letter opener'. The Man of the West was not pleased with this and has tried to get his sword back, but Colbert has buried case under litigation to this day.
  • When he eventually found Peter Parker's temple, he gushed about being the web-crawler's biggest fan. Spider-Man took the compliment in stride, but was careful not to be too attached given his nature. That was when Colbert said he "forgives" him not only for letting Obama "bribe" them into his comic, but also the creation of Miles Morales. Safe to say the new Ultimate Spider-Man was not pleased with this and has banned Colbert from his temple.
  • Believes that Wonder Woman represents yet another line of patriotic superheroes created at the time to counteract against Nazi propaganda. With that said, he is concerned that a number of women see her as a feminist icon, especially when a gust came by explaining the Secret History of Wonder Woman. Diana herself diplomatically insisted that she remains a symbol for all good people, but admits she has a soft spot for good-nature women.
  • Was initially excited that a Republican managed to snag the role of Badass Presidents. When he met to see who it was, the president rebuked him. Turns out it was Teddy Roosevelt who wasn't that to keen with the party trying to reduce the amount of parks in the country. Stephen wrote him off as a 'false prophet' and the two have been feuding ever since.
  • When Bandit Keith was invited to the show, he hoped that a fellow American patriot would help repair his name which was getting dragged in the mud by Yugioh and his friends. Instead, he made his way into a roasting as Colbert berated him for needing to cheat in order to get by, stating no true American would resort to that. The subsequent Colbert Bump made him even more of a laughing stock. The duelist now plans to sue the host for libel.

  • Whenever a deity or mortal goes about a tirade of profanity, Tony Montoya smiles in approval. His proficiency in dirty words is as vicious as his rage-fueled battles with whoever stands in his way. And God help you if he goes after you high on cocaine, as there is few things in the Pantheon that can slow him down much less outright stop him. Not to mention the fact that he isn't afraid to take on anyone in a fight, even Overdeities. All of this has bolstered his reputation as one of the most feared deities in the Pantheon.
  • The incredible story of Tony Montoya can be accredited to a simple way of life: according to him, the world is his. He always thought he was destined for great things, and he sought to do whatever it took to achieve that goal. Through his ruthlessness and paranoia, the Cuban managed to amass a multi-million dollar empire. Unfortunately, his paranoia and stubbornness got the better of him, leading to the death of his allies, retribution from his former associate and finally his own death. That could have been the end for Tony, but his cocaine-fueled rampage in the final moments of his life caused many to revere him. It wasn't long before he was deified, namely for his seamless use of profanity.
    • Many have speculated that it was Raoh himself who was moved with Tony's death enough to grant him godhood. Raoh had denied such claims, stating that Tony's popularity alone was more than enough to grant him a spot in the Pantheon. Still, he has a statute dedicated to Tony's last stand.
  • His ascension led to one of the most tumultuous moments for the House of Crime in Pantheon history. Not one to condone drug use, Vito tried to pressure Tony's suppliers out of their turf. Montoya responded with one of the most brutal string of assassinations ever seen. The two factions went to war for years, even involving members of the GUAG and GUAE who wanted to benefit from the chaos. Ultimately, the GUAG sided with the Corleones and together they sent Tony into hiding for a number of years.
  • Even in his disappearance there were gang members who went to war in his name. It was the growing popularity of the GTA deities that convinced Tony to return. This time around, the two groups established territory for themselves that the Corleones couldn't pry from them. It is here that the two groups are under a cold war of sorts, with the two going about their own business. It helped that many gaming criminals are more aligned with Tony Montoya's blustering force rather than the Corleone's precision strikes. Michael especially despises the man for forcing the son to continue working in the business, knowing that dropping out would potentially allow an opening for Montoya to take over.
    • Tommy is the rare breed of gang member that has managed warm relations with both factions. The Italian sees many similarities between him and Montoya, including how they rose to power and tried to keep it. With that said, he wished that Montoya had taken better care of his wife and sister.
    • Niko and CJ have cooler relations to Tony compared to the others, stating they could not fully stand with a man who deals drugs. With that said, many of their followers prefer working with him to the Corleones.
  • Walter White was a late addition into the criminal world, but he had made a massive impact on the House of Crime. His new formula made cocaine that much more addicting to buyers. Tony quickly hired the man, promising protection from those who want to disrupt his business. Walter handed some over to Montoya himself as a bit of incentive of keeping him. After all, Tony Montoya once again broke the rule of Getting High on Their Own Supply. Keeping him addicted gives White greater leeway in negotiating favorable deals.
  • Is one of the few deities in the entire Pantheon who does not fear Omar Little whatsoever. Any sort of raids by the man on his business sends Montoya on a raged-fueled rampage on Little's gang. The two have fought to a stalemate on multiple occasions whenever tensions inevitably flare up.
  • One of the aspects that led to his initial downfall was his over protectiveness of his sister Gina. When he found out that his best friend was dating her, he shot the man dead. It's the reason he could bear to make any of his past friends his heralds. However, he does have a friend in the form of Billy Kane. He to has to contend with a blockhead Muay Thai fighter trying to date his sister with the added bonus of the two being enemies. It's one of the few times Tony decides not to to get high out of respect for another person.
  • Even with his apparently erratic nature, he does have a set of rules to follow. For one, he will not get the family of those he would like to kill involved with such situations, invoking the love of his mother and daughters. Secondly, he refrains from more subtle ways of killing the competition, preferring direct action upon others.
  • The two may not see a lot of topics eye-to-eye, but he and George Caplin do have one thing in common: their creative use of profanity. Caplin himself defined the infamous Seven Dirty Words, and Tony has strived to use them more if them into his vocabulary.
  • In case he's going to shoot anyone, expect him to speak the following quote:
  • Recently resurfaced as part of a masked gang of heisters in Washington DC, despite the fact that he should be dead. It was later revealed that this is a doppelganger assuming the mantle of Scarface, though the fact that this Scarface uses a HK417 as his 'little friend'

@Azure: Mind if I make edits? Spelling and structure mistakes abound in those profiles.

@Crimson: [tup] for Nagash.

A consistent error: It's spelt deities, not dieties.
