Trope Pantheons Discussion

Go To

Welcome to the Trope Pantheons thread! Please read the rules:

    open/close all folders 

    Rules 
Rules. The following are not suggestions or tips, but things that have to be followed:
  • Gods can't be followers or high priests for obvious reasons.
  • When you suggest a God, please explain why they fit the trope. Not everyone is going to understand just "X should be the God of Y because they exemplify the trope" off the bat, especially if they're unfamiliar with the work.
  • No hype profiles, please.
    • So you ask, what exactly is 'hype profile'? It is a profile based on ongoing events that hasn't been around very long, but generates a lot of hype, possibly because of elements such as Wham Episode or Memetic Mutation or Large Ham or overall 'OMGAWESOME!!!' They're all not bad tropes, but building a portfolio solely for that is a bad idea, as they do not say a thing about representing the trope best (unless it's those trope concepts that they are trying to embody for a long time). You can see one if the profile is only showing off how awesome they are or suddenly pushing how 'significant' they are thanks to the just very recent events rather than respecting the longstanding good representations of the trope. And usually having... minimum portfolio or flavor texts and being a bit too generalized or self-contained to events from within their home series instead of interacting with other Pantheon members.
  • The Pantheon is not a mouthpiece for you to voice your opinions on certain characters. You may like certain characters more than others, but don't make the profiles for characters you like look like Character Shilling.
  • DO. NOT. put a link to these Pantheon pages into the main wiki page. The moment you want to add in a main Characters page that the character is a God of this trope, don't do it. If you see leftovers of this practice, do yourself a favor and delete it from that main page. This also goes to the Trivia page. The only exception to this rule is if a page in the Pantheon could be confused for a page in Main, like Good Colors, Evil Colors and Good & Evil Colors.
  • You must use the Trope Pantheons discussion thread in the forums if you wish to add a new deity, story, something else of importance to the Trope Pantheon canon, or reworking an existing deity (be it simply improving their existing profile or changing their title).
    • For new and reworked deities, 3 [tup] means the profile will have a one week waiting period.
    • For new and reworked deities, 4 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
    • 5 [tup] is an automatic ascension for new and reworked deities.
    • Speaking of reworks, for anyone that wants to improve such profiles, they have to review the current trope the character(s) has and see if it still holds up or if there is a better rep for their trope.
    • For adding new Treasures to the Treasures or new Dominions to the Dominions, the following rules apply:
      • For new Treasures or Dominions, 3 [tup] is a 3 day waiting period.
      • 4 [tup] is an automatic addition to the Treasures or Dominions.
  • Do not include fan reception in any profiles. It has nothing to do with the character themselves and will create unnecessary conflict.
  • Write a detailed explanation on why the character is the best candidate for deity of that trope. If people disagree with you, do not force it on the people.
  • Keep in mind that if you still want to try to find a trope for a particular character, you're only given three chances on such. If a suggestion goes past three possible tropes, then it will come off as shoehorning a character into the Pantheon just for the sake of that character to be there.
  • Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment ALSO applies here. Do not bring things that would incite fights, even if it is what's currently the hot topic and might be 'urgent'. For example, the political scene and some really bad politicians. We are not here to fight at each other, so don't suggest things that go to that direction.
  • Do not create a trope page for a story until the story is fully completed.
  • 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.

I remember a page or two back RJ suggested Chuck Shurley get a rework and I would ask to do it but I’m not nearly as familiar with Supernatural as I’d like to be, but given his true nature I think he needs the rework though it will need to be stated why he still fits the trope.

[up][up] Basically, the Pantheon is situated in the centre of all universes, and the temples are used by the resident deities to transport themselves to their homeworlds.

@R-Lock: The Hedge gang would probably steal food with some help from Yogi Bear, who's always up for taking Picinic baskets. They probably like stealing from the House of Food, putting them at odds with chefs like Remy and Gordon Ramsay. Also, minor critique, I think the general portfolio section in the profile could be expanded upon with a few additional tropes.

Meh, I have two reworking suggestions swimming around in my mind at the moment...


  • Raiden - Guilt Complex
    • Raiden is the Elder God of Thunder and Defender of Earthrealm (basically Planet Earth). That said, he has to endure the fact that he is fighting for centuries and has experienced many personal and widescale losses throughout, which causes him to develop a huge amount of guilt and regret over his inability to be there for his allies and comrades. This also makes him a Deconstruction of the Mentor Archetype as Raiden is meant to mentor Liu Kang, who is The Chosen One and both of them start to butt heads with one another, culminating in one of Raiden's biggest regrets in the series.
  • Shao Kahn - I Shall Taunt You
    • Shao Kahn is an Emperor of Outworld and its most vicious and bloodthirsty one. While he is utterly ruthless, one of his main personality quirks is his general tendency to pause and state how weak, foolish, pathetic and inconsequential his foes are, which is an extension of his high-and-mighty nature and his mantra of violent control over what he lords over. That, and he's one of the best-known examples of the trope.

Oh yeah, both of them are outdated, use referencing from a Pantheon storyline that's likely forgotten and they could use a refinement over their interactions with other characters and their standings in the Pantheon.

I guess if we're already touching upon KanColle, I should point out that I do have the Free! cast reserved for Gender-Blender Name, which Prinz Eugen currently has. I didn't realize that at the time, but then again, neither did anybody else considering I got 2 approvals and no complaints. I'm sticking with Free since I think it's the better choice for the trope and Pantheon representation overall and Eugen's profile sucks.

TL;DR: I'm going to delete Prinz Eugen and spare Vengeful Bale some trouble when the Kancolle purge comes around.

In the meantime, does Wilson look ready to go?

Wilson Percival Higgsbury, God of Gentlmanly Scholars

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wilson_61.png
  • Demigod, though capable of slaying Lesser Gods with enough prep time
  • Symbol: His rather noticeable hair
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portifolio: Intelligent Gentlemen, Bookworms That Can Kill Monsters, For Science!, Prone To Buffy Speak, Rather Normal Gameplay-Wise, A Genius With Moments Of Stupidity, Cracks Puns Constantly, Anime Hair, Can Grow A Beard
  • Domains: Science, Survival, Manners, Beards
  • Allies: Steve and Alex, Pi and Richard Parker, The Sole Survivor, Josuke Higashikata
  • Enemies: The Beast
  • Pities: Winslow and Wake, Faust, Jeanne
  • Unsure of: The Mann Co. Mercs
  • Opposes: Spiders (Such as Ungoliant and Lolth)
  • Wilson P. Higgsbury was a scientist who was starved of ideas. Anything that he made would just fail and blow up in his face. One day, however, he heard a strange voice coming from his radio, telling him that it could grant him "Ultimate Knowledge", which a desperate Wilson was quick to agree with. The immediate building frenzy that came with the knowledge resulted in a dimensional mirror that promptly sucked Wilson in, transporting him to a Death World where resources were scarce and finite, hostile and strange creatures roamed, and the night itself would kill him if he stayed in it for too long. Against all odds, Wilson manages to survive in these deadly conditions, and even managed to rally up some other survivors to work together (Albeit after an incident involving the dreaded Nightmare Throne) to make survival easier. Wilson and his friends goals were simple: DON'T STARVE.
  • Or, at least, that's what it was. After an incident involving some teleporting guy, he had found himself in the Pantheon, confused but otherwise ecstatic to be out of The Constant. Looking around for some answers, he eventually came across the Court Of The Gods, who he figured looked important, and explained his plight to them. After some quick research on where he came from, they ascended him as a god proper. A few years later, Wilson had come across his profile, and noticed that it was rather lacking in terms of length. As such, he requested that it would be reworked with more info obtained since his ascension, which the gods agreed to.
  • Even out of The Constant, Wilson isn't safe from darkness. Apparently, Wilson has obtained some sort of "Curse", where every location he goes to would emulate the Day/Night cycle of The Constant. To put it simply, during the Day he's free to roam around and gather supplies and make friends, while when it's Night, the darkness suddenly becomes deadly because of the sudden presence of The Night Monster, Charlie, who'll shave off massive bits of Wilson's health if he gets hit by her. Not to mention, enough loss of his sanity and he'll be attacked by numerous shadow creatures. Oh, and he'll randomly get attacked by wolves, because THEY are dicks. For those reasons, Wilson spends most of his day gathering supplies and weapons for the night, getting himself prepared for the deadly darkness. Oh, and this thankfully only affects Wilson and no one else, as they can't even see what Wilson sees thanks to the curse.
  • It wasn't long until he decided to seek out other survivors within the Pantheon, mostly to seek help for his newfound curse. One of the first of these was Steve and Alex, both of whom he found casually punching a tree apart with their fists. Being impressed by this, he quickly started a conversation with the two, and found out that their world, while still far from an ideal vacation spot, was much more preferable to The Constant. Wilson was also jealous of the duo's ability of creating whole houses from simple blocks, while he and the others could only manage a bunch of walls at best. Still didn't prevent them from getting along, however.
    • Wilson also has nothing short of respect for shipwreck survivor Pi, in no small part due to the fact he managed to survive being marooned at sea with basically nothing but some wreckage, a life boat, and a tiger, even admitting that he couldn't see himself surviving with those odds, even if he's had experience with being shipwrecked before. Pi was similarly impressed by Wilson managing to survive a Death World where night literally killed you, something that Pi probably would not've survive due to a lack of light. The two can be seen conversing about their experiences.
    • On the less optimistic side of the spectrum, Wilson can't help but pity Lighthouse watchers Winslow and Wake, both of whom weren't as lucky as Pi was, having succumbed to insanity and had possibly died in the process. As Wilson is regularly fighting to keep himself sane, he admits that he could relate to the two. Sure, they were both terrible people, but there's no harm in feeling bad about them, right? That said, he's also curious about the Lighthouse itself, as he notes that by his experience, the "hallucinations" from said locations were a wee bit specific to be simple mental trauma. Then again, his own shadowy hallucinations also attacked him, so he admits that he's really not one to talk.
  • One of the more important survival tips while in The Constant is to make sure that you have a good base, as it could prepare you for things such as wolf attacks, giant ambushes, and the like, not to mention a nifty place to safely store loot. This is a habit that Wilson has carried over into The Pantheon, where he's often seen collecting materials to expand upon his temple, which is one such base. Someone he found massively helpful in this regard is The Sole Survivor, a fellow survivor that also specializes in building forts and bases, often filling them with more lethal traps. The two can be seen conversing on what would make the best fort in case of a wolf attack.
  • As someone who's dealt with hostile shadowy beings, he figured from the start that The Beast, a being who needs to steal souls in order to survive, was bad news. Hell, he even considers the being to be worse Tham Charlie, as at least she clearly didn't have much choice in the matter of becoming The Night Monster, while The Beast relishes the horrible deeds he needs to do in order to survive. The Beast, figuring that the experienced Wilson would be a threat to his own survival, has started targeting him as of recently, though thankfully Wilson is usually prepared enough to ward off The Beast, at least temporarily.
  • At this point, you've probably noticed Wilson's odd hair. It's shown to be able to withstand such disasters as monster attacks and explosions without taking a scratch, and some gods noticed in X-rays that it actually has bones inside of it. He's also quite sensitive about people messing with his hair, even if nobody could really damage it in the first place. As such, he could relate to the similar problem Josuke Higashikata has, though he does consider him beating the crap outta the perpetrator a bit overreactive. Aside from that, he's able to make friends with Josuke, finding his healing abilities quite handy for recovering from Hound attacks.
    • Speaking of his hair, it seems that Mann Co. had taken interest in his universe, even designing a few of their products to resemble both Wilson's hair (The Wilson Weave) and The Ham Bat (The Ham Shank) and giving them out to their mercenaries to wear and battle with. Wilson's fine with it for the most part, as you can't really claim ownership to hair styles and slabs of ham, but otherwise he's a bit conflicted with the mercs themselves. On the one hand, he's glad that they're not killing innocents and quite a few of them can be pretty affable, but on the other hand, they're still a bunch of psychopaths who kill each other for fun, something that understandably unnerves the scientist. Although he swears that he once saw someone like the Pyro in The Constant once...
  • Absolutely hates spiders with a passion, mostly thanks to being attacked by them back in the Constant on a regular basis. Luckily for him, while the Pantheon has numerous spider deities, a good chunk of them are willing to ignore him as long as he leaves them alone, something that Wilson is happy to oblige to. The same can no be said, however, for Gods like Ungoliant and Lolth, both of whom are not only actively malevolent, but are also much more dangerous than the manageable pests Wilson is used to. He’s been preparing defenses ever since he’s found out about them, Properly Paranoid that they’ll come after him.
  • If one is wondering how Wilson ended up in The Constant, he made a Deal with the Devil in order to obtain “Ultimate scientific knowledge”, something that predictably backfired on him. He’s learned his lesson ever since then, but thanks to the experience, he easily pities those that suffered an unfortunate fate from such a deal. Of note are Faust, who’s whole life was completely ripped apart thank to a deal he made, and Jeanne, who was a witch that ended up burning on a stake for her troubles. As such, it isn’t uncommon to se him warn others about the dangers of such a deal.

[up][up] Looks like it's up to me to take my lion's share, again. I'm taking: Admiral, Katori and Kashima, Yamato and Musashi, Iowa, Warspite, Johnston, and Fletcher.

Edit: I'm taking Bismarck, Prinz Eugen, and U-511 as well. @Wootz: Don't worry about Prinz, I'm going to see if I can assign a new trope for her instead.

@M1gami - Provided you're aiming for an entire House to see what deities are going to vote the dust, I'd prefer if you made a separate sandbox to allow others to go through and see what they can pick up. Make sure that, even if the profiles are removed from the Pantheon, they are at least salvaged in a separate page where they can be adopted and restored to a better quality.

It may seem really big, but even so, this can be workable, considering some of the deities in Costumes to represent their tropes quite well.

The main sticking point about Kancolle (to me at least) is that the series has a simple plot and most of the heroic shipgirl's character amount to "they fight against abyssals (some abomination-looking girls) and are based of existing warships of differing periods". I don't know how much difference there is to each individual shipgirl beyond that and while that's just my observation, my greater concern is the potential number of repetitive interactions shared between Kancolle profiles (as in, the same kinds of interactions characters have in the game between other deities outside of it).

On the subject of the Costume purge, I've been thinking of reworking SA-X and Arthur (Ghosts n' Goblins) later on. I'm also interested in reworking Justice from Afro Samurai, though I'm not sure if I should include him in a shared profile with Afro given how important the Martial Arts Headband plays in their conflict and the overall world.

@ Kancolle: So what tropes will this free up? Also, consider some of them could be reworked into a grouping profile

@ Megami Tensei: I will try to get around to reworking Rouge the Bat

With Tezzy, what slaves and slavers are in the pantheon?
