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

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

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

    Deity Template 
Template for adding a new deity:

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

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

  • Interested in: The Time Eater, Caius Ballad, Galeem & Dharkon
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Infinite
  • In the distant locale of Soleanna, there exists a god of light and time who the citizens of that place worship known as Solaris. Experimentation of Solaris by the Duke of Soleanna resulted in it being split into two components: the cunning sociopath Mephiles the Dark and destructive lava monster Iblis. After a long, drawn-out plan by Mephiles that ends with him killing Sonic, Mephiles merged with Iblis, becoming Solaris once more and ready to destroy entire dimensions and timelines. It’s only the efforts of Shadow, Silver, and a revived Sonic, that Solaris is defeated and Princess Elise blowing out the Flames of Disaster ensured that Solaris and anything associated with it is erased from existence and everyone’s memories entirely.
  • As life continued in the Pantheon, reports of a god known as Solaris circulated throughout the place, though many weren’t able to find it directly. However, its components, Mephiles the Dark and Iblis, were present, both far from each other and the former looking for someone dumb enough to fall for his plans and the latter turning everything in its path into a firey wasteland. Sonic and his friends realized to their shock that Solaris had come back despite seemingly being erased from their world and by the time they reached Mephiles, it was too late and he merged with Iblis once more to become Solaris in an attempt to destroy the Pantheon and everything in it. With the power of the Chaos Emeralds, Sonic, Shadow, and Silver powered themselves up and defeated Solaris once more. While the Pantheon was restored and the memory of that destruction wiped from the minds of many, that memory didn’t leave Sonic and his friends, who are already ensuring that another event like that doesn’t happen again.
  • Some have drawn similarities between Solaris and The Time Eater, by virtue of them being capable of eating entire dimensions and posing a major threat to the space-time continuum. The fact that Eggman played a significant role in making the latter who it is wasn’t lost on Mephiles, especially after learning that Sonic somehow ended up in a Bad Future very similar to the one that was ravaged by Iblis despite having no apparent memory of those instances prior. A few entities even claimed that The Time Eater contains some remnants of Solaris, but nothing has been proven thus far. Mephiles has some fascination with The Time Eater and has considered trying to make it independent from Eggman in order to use it for his own schemes.
  • Mephiles and Infinite are similar in a way thanks to having been defeated by Shadow in the past and later coming back to enact destructive revenge. Whereas Mephiles was able to succeed in (at least temporarily) causing the end of the world thanks to killing Sonic even if his initial plan ended up being rather convoluted, Infinite was so caught up in his own pride and sadism that his actions ultimately resulted in Sonic living and his and Eggman’s plan to fall apart. It became clear that Infinite hates being reminded of his failures by Mephiles and that even if they’re working together to destroy Sonic and his allies, Infinite wants to be the one to defeat them no matter how complicated Mephiles’ plans may be. Of course, if Infinite does end up messing up a plan of Mephiles in some way, Mephiles will just find another way to enact revenge, regardless of whether or not he needs Infinite for it.
  • One deity that was fascinated with Solaris and its extreme power was Majin Buu. He was out to destroy multiple worlds just to satiate his bloodlust and was eager to meet Mephiles after learning of how the latter sought total destruction for similar reasons. Zamasu, an omnicidal god made up of equally dangerous components, noticed that Solaris had a similarly destructive angle and sought him out hoping to find someone who can support Zamasu’s cause. Unfortunately, by the time he reached him, Zamasu saw that both Mephiles and Buu had befriended each other, further enraging Zamasu who went on a tangent on how entities like the two should be destroyed, even if Mephiles was a component of a god. Mephiles retorted that for all of Zamasu’s bravado, power, and ambitions, there will always be someone who will defy him and that such a goal can’t be achieved with those obstacles. By that point, Zamasu had lost it again and Buu engaged in a violent battle with him that nearly resulted in another catastrophe by the time it settled. Worse yet, Mephiles had already left by the time the battle was over, thinking to himself how Zamasu’s personal hate of specific entities would get in the way of total destruction.
    • Cell also happened to be interested in Solaris, especially after learning how similar he and Mephiles are to each other. Both were born of scientific experiments and are manipulative, time-traveling entities that can heal themselves extremely well and are seeking to attain their ultimate form by any means necessary. After encountering Mephiles, both of them got along with each other very well (especially concerning them being opposed by a time-traveler from the future) and are willing to help each other gain their ultimate power.
    • Beerus and Whis ended up witnessing the fatal confrontation between Buu and Zamasu, with Whis playing a role in stopping Zamasu and Beerus taking care of Buu. The two then told Goku and Vegeta of what happened and everything about Solaris and its components, including Mephiles’ alliance with Cell. The idea of someone with components similar to what Zamasu has, combined with the sheer destruction that Majin Buu wants to engage in and being very much like Cell in terms of goals, was something that Goku and Vegeta couldn’t ignore. While Mephiles and Iblis on their own can be defeated by both Goku and Vegeta, should Solaris become whole once more, it’s not only going to require them, but Beerus and Whis’ intervention to prevent another armageddon. Mephiles considers Whis to be a major obstacle in his plans considering the latter’s abilities to rewind time by a few minutes, effectively making whatever progress Mephiles made up to that point null and void.
  • With his overall goal being the complete destruction of time, Mephiles sought out other deities who shared the same ambitions that he has. He managed to quickly befriend Randall Ross, a deity who can travel through time and has a personal vendetta being the main reason for his plans. Randall found Mephiles as someone he can talk to easily and told him about another deity that sought to destroy time named Caius Ballad. Mephiles learned of how Caius’ originally had a seemingly well-intentioned goal and how Randall won Caius over, a sign that he took as someone to manipulate. Randall stated that his initial conversation with Caius was only just a step of a larger plan and that he’s willing to let Mephiles continue to use Caius as a tool to further destroy all of time. In any case, Randall is more than looking forward to seeing the full power of Solaris once everything has been accomplished.
    • Unsurprisingly, Mephiles’ overall ambitions and psychopathy have made him the target of those dedicated to ensuring the stability of the overall timestream. Of those deities, Clockwork has taken Solaris’ destruction very personally as even if everything related to the god has been erased from time initially, Clockwork will still remember it and he’s been the one to spearhead many of the efforts to destroy Solaris entirely. Future Trunks was another time protector who is very determined in making sure Solaris and its components are gone entirely, especially after learning about Mephiles’ similarities to Cell via a talk from Goku and Vegeta and those similarities being something Future Trunks couldn’t ignore. The Master of Chaldea has gone through many time periods and fought against many powerful threats, so the mere concept of a God of Time that can destroy everything and is made up of two volatile components was something that put The Master of Chaldea on high alert, requiring all the help they can get to take Solaris down.
  • Solaris wasn’t the only entity to be completely erased and forgotten from existence. Xion ended up being forgotten from time, though she eventually came back to life and reunited with her friends after being freed from a plan that required her as a pawn. Mephiles didn’t take it well that someone who should have been erased from time came back since he apparently never had that benefit and in turn, Xion finds Mephiles to be a dangerous being of darkness, even if he is only one part of a greater threat. After a battle between the two that ended with Xion barely able to drive off Mephiles, she made it clear that she and the rest of her friends from The Clock Tower will stop him, though Mephiles warned her that she and her so-called allies have no idea what they’re going up against before retreating.
    • Mephiles has nothing but scorn towards Madoka Kaname and Ragna the Bloodedge, two deities who erased themselves from existence to fix the severe damage that has occurred in their respective settings. Mephiles even went as far as to belittle Madoka over how pointless her efforts were to fix things since she ended up depowered once she was brought back to life. As for Ragna, he arrived just in time to tell off Mephiles before the latter could verbally break Madoka further. Mephiles responded by engaging Ragna in battle, with Madoka having to hide in a safe place during that time. Ragna was able to defeat Mephiles with little trouble, though Mephiles retaliated by saying that everything that Ragna cares about will be gone once Mephiles’ plans come to fruition. Ragna made it clear that even if he and his friends have to suffer immensely, he will stop anyone (Mephiles included) from bringing about total ruination with everything he’s got.
  • As a lava monster capable of devastating entire landscapes, Iblis and his destructive traits got the attention of many villainous pyromancers. Iblis itself is nothing more than a mindless beast, so it is often treated as a potent attack-dog by the other evil fire-users as a means to quickly lay waste to any specific area they desire. The fact that Iblis can be sealed inside someone’s soul and that he hasn’t shown any attempt whatsoever to take control of them was a bit disappointing for those hoping to possess someone to become an out-of-control monster, but the likes of Ragnaros and Brand are more than welcoming of raw strength to their fiery alliance.
    • Given how Iblis is already in allegiance with The Firebird, The Spring Sprite started to oppose Iblis on that principle and then learned about Mephiles, how the two together make up a being that is just as destructive, if not moreso, as The Firebird and was rather horrified at the possibility of Solaris rising once again. Mephiles has nothing but contempt towards The Spring Sprite’s ability to heal everything she comes across, finding it to be a waste of time to recover something that will inevitably be destroyed once more.
  • As the name would suggest, the Light of Destruction was a malicious light-based entity that took great interest in Solaris. Mephiles heard of the former’s ability to possess people and corrupt them through listening in on a conversation about it, giving him another reason to hasten the process of becoming Solaris again. Necrozma was another powerful deity with control over light that Mephiles has been paying attention to, but for a different reason. The Pokemon’s ability to devour light, combined with it being a formerly benevolent entity before going berserk and later tamed, has given Mephiles plenty of reason to be concerned of another potential obstacle in Solaris’ rebirth even if Necrozma going berserk was something to take advantage of. While the experimentation of Solaris resulting in it being split apart wasn’t that different from others wanting a piece of Necrozma itself and it losing some of its power as a result, the Pokemon sees everything related to Solaris as a significant threat overall and doesn’t want to be manipulated into being a weapon of destruction.
  • Despite not having been involved in the war between Galeem and Dharkon, Mephiles couldn’t help but be amused at how Sonic, his friends, and some of his enemies fell victim to Galeem’s first attack. Mephiles did try to seek out the two abominations in the hopes of finding some powerful allies, though it became clear that things weren’t going to work out in the long run. Being whole as Solaris would mean getting Galeem’s attention, but the latter’s goals of wanting a world ruled by total world went against Mephiles’ plans of destroying everything, alongside the fact that The Light of Destruction is already playing a role in Solaris’ eventual return. Mephiles shares a bit more in common with Dharkon in that they’re beings of darkness with destructive ambitions, though once Mephiles merges with Iblis again, he’ll probably end up having to fight Dharkon at that point given the latter’s hatred of light-based beings. For now, Mephiles would rather sit from the sidelines and see how Galeem and Dharkon’s battle plays out before getting involved with either of them.
  • At first, The Colossi was an interesting subject for Mephiles to look into, given that they house fragments of a sealed god inside of them akin to Iblis and Mephiles being the components of Solaris. As it turned out, the sealed entity ended up being more of a neutral (relatively speaking) figure in the long run and Mephiles ultimately didn’t find any use for The Colossi in his plans. The Colossi are more or less passive figures if anything, but they don’t really like Solaris as a whole, especially in regards to Mephiles’ being deceptive towards his pawns.
  • Learning about what The Vex wanted and their capabilities was something that frustrated Mephiles. Given how versatile they are in terms of going through time, combined with ensuring that they are the dominant species in the end, their ability to Ret-Gone things (even if that power is limited for the time being) was something that Mephiles was worried about considering that this was how he was defeated. The Vex see Solaris and its components as little more than obstacles to be rid of and since Mephiles is aware that he’ll have plenty of trouble fighting against The Vex as a whole (and that Iblis may not have it any easier against them), he’ll just wait until he becomes Solaris to be sure that he’ll have a change at eliminating The Vex entirely.

  • Tamamo no Mae's story begins when the goddess Amaterasu became curious about the lives of her worshippers, which were a source of fascination to her. Soon, she desired to become a human and so that she could experience these emotions, she then relinquished her divinity and memories to reincarnate as a young human girl in the old province of Izumo, with the childhood name of Mizukume who was said to be the human form of a white-faced, gold-furred nine-tailed fox. At the age of eighteen, she started serving the court of Emperor Toba, who had fallen in love with her at first sight so he appointed her as his favourite lady-in-waiting on top of possessing great beauty and knowledge. With that, she then called herself with the name everybody has known her for: Tamamo-no-Mae.
    • One morning, her head had sprouted fox ears; she managed to conceal them for a month, before she was exposed as a fox by Abe no Seimei, who had been investigating the cause of Toba's mysterious illness. She fled from the inner sanctum of the Imperial Court so they sent hounds after her, and it was the first time in Japan that a fox had been hunted by the hounds. She fled and cried in the fields of Nasu where a skulk of foxes gathered around and comforted her, recognizing that she had a rough time. Later on, Tamamo-no-Mae met an eighty-thousand-men army that was dispatched at the behest of the retired emperor to kill her. She tried to apologize and reason with them but nobody listened so she fought back, and killed them in retaliation a few times for three days and nights which eventually culminated into her end by a shot of an enchanted arrow. Her corpse was said to have become the Killing Stone, or Sessho-seki which released a problematic cursed poison that killed approaching people and animals until she was exorcised for good by the monk Gennou Shinshou, swearing to never haunt the stone again.
    • In the Moon Cell Holy Grail War, she manifested as a Caster-class Servant, ready to serve Hakuno Kishinami throughout its events and along the way, she began to treasure Hakuno when they treated her with kindness as they represent the lost love she had for Toba and his people back then; she also developed a rivalry with Nero Claudius AKA Red Saber for Hakuno's affection. Should she not be summoned by Hakuno, Twice H. Piecemann will summon her instead but he eventually lost her due to his repeated losses and she later joins Hakuno anyway; Twice compensates by summoning Saver as his next Servant. In another timeline for the Moon Cell War, Tamamo served Hakuno to help them escape from the Sakura Labyrinth. In a different timeline, Tamamo clashed against Altera along with Nero once again before they team up with Hakuno to defend the Moon Cell from Sefar and later helped Charlemagne defeat Karl der Große.
    • In the timeline of the Grand Order, Tamamo encounters Ritsuka Fujimaru in the London Singularity and helped them defeat Nikola Tesla and the Lancer Servant Artoria Pendragon Alter, before being defeated by Goetia the first time. After being summoned to serve Ritsuka, she aided them defeat the Demon God Pillar Barbatos and later, Goetia for good in the final Singularity.
  • When Tamamo ascended, she threw a huge party and was happy to see that Nero, Altera and Ritsuka were already there, and she hopes that Hakuno can join them. (FIX LATER)
  • Tamamo was very happy when she arrvived and saw that Nero and Altera were already there, and the three of them hope that Hakuno can ascend.
  • Tamamo knows that she wasn't the best leader to Medusa, Elizabeth Bathory, Lu Bu, and Karna in Fate/Extella, but she hopes that they will forgive her.
  • Tamamo is happy that Ritsuka Fujimaru has ascended is willing to fight for him, like she did against Goetia.
  • Tamamo gets along well with Medea & Souichirou Kuzuki because they were both evil mages who managed to find happiness with a person they fell in love with.
  • Tamamo became friends with Ahri because they both are magical foxes to whom love is very important.
  • Tamamo also became friends with Holo and Yomi because all three of them are canines who fell in love with humans.
  • Tamamo became friends with Miles "Tails" Prower because they both are intelligent foxes, although Tails is a mechanic, not a mage.
  • Tamamo also became friends with Alice from Monster Girl Quest, because they both are royal animal hybrids who fell in love with humans, and through her, she met Luka, who reminds her of Hakuno.
  • Tamamo gets along well with Amaterasu, because she was Amamterasu, before she incarnated on Earth.
  • Tamamo doesn't get along very well with Jeanne d'Arc or Vladd III, but occasionally, they work together if they have a common enemy.
  • Tamamo hates Kiara Sessyoin for trapping her and Hakuno in the Moon Cell.
  • Tamamo hates Kirei Kotomine after he tricked her into eating some of his insanely hot mapo tofu.
  • Tamamo hates Zouken Matou and Shinji Matou for the way that they abused Sakura.
  • Tamamo hates Angra Mainyu for preventing the Fourth and Fifth Holy Grail Wars from happening they way they were supposed to.
  • Tamamo hates Jack the Ripper for assassinating mages and eating their hearts.
  • Tamamo hates Gudako for being an abusive master who treats low-rarity servants like trash.
  • Tamamo helped Ritsuka fight against Tiamat (Fate/Grand Order) and Goetia, and she will help him fight them again, should the need arise.
  • Tamamo hates Abe no Seimei, because he was the person who exposed her as kitsune and forced her to flee from Emperor Toba's court.
  • Tamamo hates SCP-953 and Daji because they remind her of when she was evil, before she met Hakuno.
  • Tamamo hates YHWH because he doesn't understand that she is good now.
  • If there is an order I will come immediately! Your dependabe Fox Shrine Maiden! Caster has des~cended~♡

Is Purgatory ready to go up?

Purgatorio, Deified Afterlife Between Heaven And Hell (The Mountain of Purgatory)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/purgatorio_de_dantealigheri.jpg
A picture model of Purgatory, in Italian
  • Votes: 1(Super WIKI 1)
  • House: Dimensions (House of Dominions)
  • Description: A colossal mountain located at Jerusalem's antipode in the Pacific Ocean
  • Symbol: A mountain lit by sunrise
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral in function, though the inhabitants vary
  • Portfolio: Purgatory and Limbo, A Means For Souls To Atone and Earn Your Happy Ending, Seven Deadly Sins
  • Domains: The Afterlife, Redemption, Vices And Overcoming Them, Purification, Souls
  • Related to: The Inferno
  • Of interest to: Dante Aligheri, the GUAG Ministry of Atonement
  • On the opposite side of the globe from Jerusalem lies the Mountain of Purgatory. Created by a displacement of rock due to Dis' fall, it is a place for those too virtuous for Hell but not enough for Heaven. It's best described as a tough love camp where souls go through ideals to purify their souls for Heaven. Limbo technically isn't part of it though, but rather the top of the Inferno for virtuous pagans.
  • The Ministry of Atonement has a mixed opinion on Purgatory. As a group they are all about helping people atone, however they believe a number of the ordeals to be too harsh. Dante thinks they're being kind of soft but admires their own work in life, and the Grand United Alliance of Good admits that it's in keeping with 14th century Christianity. These disagreements haven't stopped, though. As per their suggestions, part of Purgatory has been excavated to helping people come to terms with their actions, and having a true Heel Realization.
  • At the time the Americas weren't known by Europeans, so Dante was surprised by the two continents near Mt Purgatory. However despite not knowing about them, there is still a spot in the Pacific Ocean for the mountain. The House of Land & Sea Travel discovered the mountain. It's rumored that Kunkka has made some connection. Dante advises against mountain climbers visiting, as he feels it robs a lot of the meaning from it.
  • At the start are the shores of Purgatory, first part of Ante-Purgatory. Cato the Younger serves as the guardian. An angel serves as the boatman. The GUAG is trying to ensure that none of YHVH's angelic agents try to take that role; God forbid HE get His claws on parts of the afterlife. The Angels of Paradiso and Demons of Inferno would rather just take the mountain for themselves.
  • The next layers of Ante Purgatory are The Excommunicate and The Late-Repentant. The Excommunicate are for excommunicated and those who repented too late, the Late-Repentant are for those too lazy/preoccupied to repent, those who died before last rites, and rulers who didn't have time. They need to wait their mortal lives. The Emperor of Mankind scoffs at this being unfair and another argument against religion he has, to which Dante simply mused that at best he should expect to wait the 50,000 years in the "Negligent Rulers" section, presuming he's not thrown into Hell for his extreme actions.
  • The Seven Terraces are modeled after the Seven Deadly Sins. The Grand United Alliance of Evil doesn't get how this is supposed to be distinct from the Inferno's take on it, but Dante explains that they are based off motives, not actions, and represent his idea that they are related to twisted forms of love. A perverted love directed to harming others for the first three terraces, a deficiency for the fourth, and an excessive or disordered love of good things. The House of Love is often in debate about how true this view is.
  • Examples of the corresponding virtue are present to help with atonement. Dante angrily rebukes the GUAL Virtuous Stars being the examples, half out of his focus on Christianity and half because he considers YHVH a malevolent mockery of a loving God and the Virtuous Stars are associated with it.
    • The first terrace is for pride, weighed down by holding stones that represent their hubris. Interestingly Vegeta was not considered for it despite being the God of Pride, since the end of the Buu saga had proven he had truly repented. Still, Dante feels most of the House of Pride that aren't evil should work there, such as Katsugi Bakugo and Trixie.
    • The second terrace is for envy, and its corresponding virtue is generosity. Dante speculates the reason why Envy the Jealous was depicted in Heaven and not in Hell In Memorium is because his pitiful end led him here, and he eventually atoned. He would have to had his eyes sown shut to do so as part of purging sins, and is one of the things the Ministry of Atonement complains about. If there is any truth of it, Envy doesn't remember himself.
    • The third terrace is wrath, with meekness being the corresponding virtue. The souls of the wrathful walk around in blinding acrid smoke, which symbolizes the blinding effect of anger. Denizens of the House of Fire & Heat joked at this purging being an average Tuesday afternoon for them, and Dante wouldn't know what someone from there would have as an ordeal. Of course, no-one is significantly wrathful while also not being so much so they would be sent to Hell. The House of Anger might have to watch out, though.
    • The fourth terrace is sloth, with zeal being the corresponding virtue. Again, Dante had to remind the Grand United Alliance of Law that he does not think they're an example to be emulated in Purgatory. The souls run around and engage in ceaseless activity. He also considers spiritual laziness and apathy something to overcome here, which the House of FAITH is noting down.
    • The fifth terrace is for the avaricious, who lie face down and recite the psalm Adhaesit pavimento anima mea, a prayer that express the desire to follow God's law. Being humble is the corresponding virtue. Dante has warned the House of Commerce on this terrace, though it's only really Phillip Price seeking an atonement. The rest of the house don't truly fit avarice, are virtuous enough for Heaven or vile enough for Hell, or simply don't feel a need to search for atonement.
    • The sixth terrace is for gluttony. It's reminiscent of Tantalus, with fruit from a tree forever out of reach, and the corresponding virtue is temperance. As such, Dante is critical of the House of Food.
    • Finally there is the seventh terrace, for lust. An immense wall of flame one must pass, though again this makes it kind of cheap for those associated with the House of Fire & Heat. As far as Dante is concerned, both lust sub-houses should be removed from the House of Love and face either this or, depending on their morality, the second circle of Hell. Most sub-houses
  • At the top is Earthly Paradise, better known as the Garden of Eden. Allegorically, it represents the state of innocence that existed before Adam and Eve fell from grace - he state which Dante's journey up Mount Purgatory has been recapturing. The SCP Foundation was surprised to learn that Dante somehow made it pass the Gate Guardian without a scratch, and wonder if using Purgatory as a way of getting past security is a possibility. However they're unlikely to pursue it without being more trouble than it's worth.
  • The Ministry of Atonement has seen its members go to Purgatory as part of their redemption, as have others.
  • Butch Hartmann has revealed that the Ghost Zone is somewhat of an alternate version of purgatory and limbo. With this in mind, Dante believes that except for Dark Danny, the terraces of Purgatory could one day see a redemption to many of the ghosts. He'd place Ember McClain would go to Pride because of her desire to be ever remembered, and Desiree would go to Envy because of her backstory. Outside of the pantheon, he considers Lunch Lady for Gluttony, Johnny 13 for the Late Repentant and Sidney Poindexter for Wrath.
  • Rumor has it there are other areas Dante missed out on his journey, but he is adamant that nobody is Jesus there. Some of these areas are an afterlife for monsters and prison for the Leviathans, a Dark World, meant for neutrally aligned deities, a nice suburb and a white void. It might also be where the pencil pushers of the afterlife work.

Captain Viridian, Deity of Gravity As A Gameplay Mechanic

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/viridiannoback.png
  • Demideity (Lesser Deity in Indie Pogo)
  • Returning To: Space Manipulation
  • [tup]s: 3 (The Wikia Editor, Muundeis, Crimson Shark)
  • Rework Done on: May 26 (repost on May 20 and 23)
  • Theme Songs: "Pushing Onwards" (or "Positive Force" during daring escape sequences)
  • Symbol: A Shiny Trinket
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Color Character, Optimism, Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence, Being Monochromatic, Gravity Master
  • Domains: Gravity, Wrap Around, Teleporting
  • Followers: Seto, Albiero Imma
  • Heralds: The other members of the D.S.S. Souleye crew (Doctor Violet, Professor Vitellary, Officer Vermilion, Doctor Victoria, Chief Verdigris)
  • Allies: Kat, Mega Man, Robert Capa, Olimar, Ochaco Uraraka/Uravity
  • Enemies: Crow, Seija Kijin
  • Pities: Siebren de Kuiper/Sigma
  • Opposes: Lambdadelta, Pain/Nagato
  • Ascended to the Pantheon by falling up to it.
    • That's what many joke about him saying. The truth is, the D.S.S. Souleye arrived somewhere in the House of Time and Space after the crew saved the dimension they got stuck in thanks to the research they found in the Secret Lab. After that, they tried getting back home, but ended up here. After negotiations, an appearance before the Court of the Gods, and a report of their journey, Viridian was nominated to represent Gravity Screw, due to it being the core mechanic of his whole adventure.
  • Despite being referred to as a "he" around here, no one actually knows whether or not if he's male or female. Officer Vermilion does addresses the Captain as "Sir", but that's likely from military regulations, which would likely require that form of address even if Viridian was a woman.
  • Has trouble navigating certain houses because of bumps of moderate heights, which he must reverse gravity to go over. Inclines make it easier for him to navigate.
  • If Viridian falls out of sight, whether by accident or another god pulling a joke, he respawns hours later back at the "entrance" to the House of Time and Space.
    • However, since Born's ascension evaluating the inconvenience of this, Viridian's respawn has been changed to "seconds after his death" and "at the entrance of any sub-House/Dominion he's in".
  • Has become good friends with Mega Man, who shares the same problem with spikes.
  • While not a Gravity Master herself, he doesn't like Seija Kijin for the times she's reversed his gravity without his volition just for kicks.
  • Kat gets along with Viridian and is often there to help him out by carrying him with her gravity powers whenever he needs to traverse somewhere with multiple elevations.
  • Viridian also sometimes gets aid from telekinetics who have enough power to carry him around. One particular case is Twilight Sparkle, who expresses some interest in the dimension his crew has ended up in.
    • Really, anybody who is courteous enough/has the time to carry him are nice people in his book.
  • Robert Capa and Olimar are other spaceship cruiser captains that Viridian gets along with, and they occasionally talk about their trips both pre- and post-Pantheon.
  • Has been invited to a tournament somewhat similar to that of Master Hand's. And fellow Indie Game deities like Shovel Knight, Sash Lilac, Octodad, Dust, Diogenes, and Gunvolt have been invited as well. And to even things out, he's been granted the ability to throw the V spikes that have plagued his adventure. Among many other bonuses.
    • As a result, he's become friends with most of them, and met someone he didn't like in Crow, the final boss of the Arcade Mode, on top of his villainy.

SCP-105, Goddess of Portal Pictures (Iris Thompson, , FIELD OPERATIVE SK-107 "Snapshot")

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scp_105.jpg
Artistic interpretation of SCP-105
  • Potential House: Space Manipulation
  • [tup]s: 3 (The Wikia Editor, Super WIKI 1, rmpdc)
  • Rework Done on: May 26 (repost on May 20 and 23)
  • Lesser Goddess with the powers of an Intermediate Goddess (Safe by SCP standards)
  • Symbol: SCP-105-B, her camera
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Portal Picture via Magical Camera, Accused of Killing Her Boyfriend, Nice Girl, Granola Girl, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold, Chatty On Certain Subjects, Broken Bird, Shell-Shocked Veteran
  • Domain(s): Cameras, Portals
  • Under Watch of: The SCP Foundation
  • Superiors: Dr. Sophia Light (director of Mobile Task Force Alpha-9)
  • Heralds: Mobile Task Force Alpha-9 (as a team leader), SS Agent Andrea S. Adams (her handler and only friend in the Foundation)
  • Allies: SCP-073 (Cain), Miku Hinasaki, Mio and Mayu Amakura, Max Caulfield
  • Enemies: Yoshihiro Kira, the Global Occult Coalition
  • Sometime after tending to SCP-105 yet again, one researcher was sympathetic to her situation and wanted to find a way to get better living conditions. Knowing what happened to the last guy who tried (even if the Foundation removed it from memory), she did this by way of a deity submission form to the Court of the Gods. It would get lost with all the other submission forms before being found a few years later.
    • By the time the Foundation received a notice for that submission form, the events of Resurrection were already in progress. Seeing this as an opportunity, in addition to Iris being transferred to better lodgings in the Pantheon, MTF Alpha-9 now has a "forward base" of sorts as a result.
  • For those not in the know, SCP-105 is a blonde European girl who possesses a Polaroid One Step 600 camera (designated SCP-105-B). What makes her anomalous is that when she holds a picture taken by that camera, the photo changes from a still image to that of a real-time image of the location in question. She's also able to reach through the photograph and manipulate objects within reach of the original point at which the photograph was taken. People witnessing this power report seeing a disembodied ghostly female hand (determined to be SCP-105's) reaching out from an invisible portal and carrying out the actions indicated.
    • There are some limits however; these effects do not occur when the camera or its photos are used by any other person (though it's not known if a photo taken with SCP-105-B by someone else can be used by SCP-105 herself), SCP-105's powers to manipulate objects are highly limited if the photos she's using aren't taken by SCP-105-B, and she can only focus on up to ten photos at a time, though she thinks she could do more eventually. Polaroid film brings the best results, as off-brand film didn't work as well, though it could've been an issue of quality-of-manufacture.
    • How fine-tuned is her power? With a photo of a gun's inner mechanisms, she can remove the firing pin of that gun to keep someone from shooting with it. And she can detonate claymores by hand if she's taken photos of their emplacements.
  • For the record, she was born with the name Iris Thompson, which is what this profile will address her by from this point forward.
  • Iris definitely appreciates her better living conditions and more social freedoms, though she still has armed guards around and a tracking device on her given how her powers can be sought out and exploited (and because of a certain incident, security is increased). For those reasons, Iris doesn't often have her camera with her when she goes out, and it is contained in a locked safe-deposit box deep in her temple, with the same security measures as the High Value Item Storage Facility it used to be in. Standard positive-action defenses (explosive, chemical, biological, and memetic) are in place at all times while SCP-105-B is within containment.
  • That said, portal pictures isn't her only means of self-defense or offense; from her tenure at Mobile Task Force Omega-7 (and her training in Alpha-9), she has plenty of firearms training (including undoing a gun jam mid-fight) and has killed multiple times before. If worse comes to worst, she'll do it again.
    • And we don't just mean handguns and the like. She knows how to operate a sniper rifle and can land headshots on running targets (to be precise, bodies animated by a variant of SCP-008) once per second, ammo permitting.
    • That said, do not ask about her time there in Omega-7; she lost everyone in that Task Force during a mission, and isn't too keen on getting back into the fray. Not to mention the actions of SCP-076-2, another member of Omega-7. She fears the day he becomes a Pantheon God. At least the currently ascended Abel is amicable enough.
  • The first to visit her was SCP-076, whom she was acquainted to in her tenure under Omega-7 and they had a warm hug together. Well, as warm a hug as Cain's metal arms would allow.
  • She's gotten acquainted with other users of special cameras such as Miku Hinasaki and Mio Amakura (plus Mio's sister Mayu) with their respective Camera Obscuras. When she tried out the Camera Obscura for herself, it showed that while Iris does have powers, they aren't psychic ones and thus have no effect on ghosts.
    • Another with similar powers as her is Yoshihiro Kira, whose powers unfortunately eclipse hers in scale. That said, given his Stand's weakness, he stays away from her, fearing that if she catches a photo of him via SCP-105-B, he would be entirely at her mercy. He even thinks the Foundation might eventually employ her just for that purpose.
    • Yet another is Elizabeth, who eventually heard of Iris's powers and is intriged by her camera.
    • While her powers aren't tied to her camera, the time-traveler Max hit it off with Iris really well, who wonders if life at Arcadia Bay (were it not for the tornado) could've been her life had her boyfriend not died and the Foundation took her. Given her own powers, Max thinks she would've had a more restrictive time in the Foundation had they captured her, and the Pantheon thankfully keeps them from trying that now.
  • According to SCP-458, her favorite pizza is a small thin crust one with olives and wheat crust.
  • In regards to her time in Mobile Task Force Alpha-9, the Foundation is officially keeping most of its activities classified, and Iris herself is keeping quiet on most matters regarding this, but here are what is known.

With what Excessive-Menace said about Tamamo's very short flavor texts and seeing just how short the texts are in Viridian's profile even if the rework is supposedly "done", I really feel like there should be more effort put into flavor texts, both in new profiles and reworks (in the latter case, not just making minor modifications to pre-existing texts).

@Tensei: Regarding YVHV, SMT 4 Apocalypse is meant to be a Mind Screw Driver for the franchise.

In short, YVHV’s SMT 2 depiction is his true nature.

Great Will is actually Lawful Good and HATES YVHV for doing all sorts of awful things while claiming to be it. Hates him enough to be the guy granting mortals power to fight back against him.

P 5 R is worth the money. Trust me on this.

LOTS of new content. Major bosses have new tricks up their sleeves (such as extra phases). Will seeds to find in palaces.

Some VERY significant balance changes too.

1. Baton Pass no longer requires confidant ranks (significant buff to Makoto and Haru’s early game).

2. Gun ammo is restocked every fight. The auto knock down trick via tower is per dungeon.

3. Makoto’s max mana got nerfed.

4. auto kill reward from ryugi works via dashing into targets now and can grant rewards (buff to his confidant).

5. More veggies from Haru’s confidant.

6. Passive abilities for personas. The big winner here is Haru (+25% ailment resistance for friendlies). Ann, Ryuji, and Akechi got good ones too. Makoto’s is a “build your party around it one” that given major bosses are immune to ailments is actually pretty shitty. Great against mooks/mid bosses. Morgana’s becomes redundant in late game.
