I feel like the current goddess of Cast From Life Span has very little to do with the trope in her story.

I nominate Nita Callahan and Kit Rodriguez from Young Wizards to replace her

Nita Callahan and Kit Rodriguez God and Goddess of Language of Magic and Cast From Life Span (for Nita: Juanita Louise Callahan, Neets.)

Note, this is a work in progress. Comments will be worthwhile.

Okay, wanting to add Horrible Histories' Death in. Does this need to be fleshed out a bit?

Death, Judge of the Too Dumb to Live

  • Theme Song: Stupid Deaths
  • Rank: Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His skeletons
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: "Interesting" deaths
  • Domains: Death, Stupidity, Afterlife
  • Followers: All Darwin Award nominees
  • Allies: Charles Darwin
  • Often seen hearing the stories of those who have passed on, and awarding express passes to the afterlife for those whose deaths were sufficiently humorous.

Sonya Blade shouldn't be the goddess of kiss of death. She doesn't have one. That goes to Katina

Techically she does have Kiss of Death multiple times. Its just that hers are blowkisses rather than normal kisses.

Jan 26th 2014 at 1:02:39 PM •••

but Katina is more known for it. So she should be the goddess

I'd like to nominate Sue the T-Rex, a zombie dinosaur from "The Dresden Files" for some kind of position in the "Life and Death" pantheon. I thought about adding her to the Beast and Magic pantheons, but nobody really seemed to be interested in supporting that. It's not a huge deal to me, but that part of the book is widely considered one of the crowning moments of awesome in the series, so I figured she deserved a spot around here SOMEWHERE.

If I'm reaching on this, let me know, but I honestly think she could be a pretty good lesser goddess on here.

Do any Immortality tropes qualify for the Life and Death pantheon? Like Immortality Immorality, Who Wants to Live Forever?

... What the... Okay I know this isn't negative, but... why are you suddenly forcing your thoughts to other places? What next, are you going to bash Charlotte this way next? Try to calm down.

Sep 27th 2013 at 10:57:17 PM •••

My problem is the way she died, I have no problem killing of a character, if they wanted to kill her off thats fine, but NOT WITH THE MONSTER OF THE WEEK! That's a rule, never kill an established character with the monster of the week. I mean after Mami's unnecessary death Charlotte goes boom boom at least less then 1 min later.

Now I do like the show, but I just thought this was completely uncalled for. It's just I'm so sick of the stupid Mami head jokes all due to a unnecessary death.

I need to vent my anger and this is the only way I can get it off my chest. And if she is in the pantheon she should be the goddess of BFG's. Just a thought.

Why not vent it to the forums instead? It's more proper that way.

For your consideration.

Donald Mallard, God of Medical Examiners (Dr. Mallard, Ducky)

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A liver probe, alternately his bowtie
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: The Coroner, Bunny-Ears Lawyer, Talking to the Dead, Bow Ties Are Cool, Creepy Mortician
  • Domain: Death, Medicine, Psychiatry, Trivia
  • Allies: Gibbs, Death of the Endless
  • Has the tendancy to monologe about topics barely relevent to what the previous or current conversation.
  • Is often called on in the house of Justice for autopsy before the victim is revived/reincarnated. No one has commented yet if they heard Ducky talking to them while operating.
  • Is considered one of Agent Gibbs' beast assets for making perps sweat in case he ever runs into a dead end.

Eh... I'm a fan of the show and characters, but if you're gonna nominate Ducky for the pantheon, I think you'd have to spice it up a bit. Add some flavor, add an enemy of some kind. Give him an ambition to autopsy Death one day. That kind of thing.

Apr 14th 2013 at 10:58:22 PM •••

Is there a god for Skeletons In The Closet? If not, can I suggest Vordred the Paladin Slayer from Adventure Quest Worlds? He was specifically created to kill Artix and become the Champion of Darkness and his skull based armor can absorb all light-based spells. It also help give Daniel Fortesque a good enemy.

Apr 12th 2013 at 6:48:34 AM •••

I question Maimi being labeled as the Goddess of Early Deaths, yet is hotlinked to Sacrificial Lamb, when she is really more of a Sacrificial Lion. And if there should be a separate god for Sacrificial Lion, I would recommend Eddard Stark from A Song Of Ice And Fire.

Eddard 'Ned' Stark God of Surprise Deaths [[ (Warden of the North, Lord of Winterfell, Hand of the King)

  • Theme Song: House Stark
  • Rank: Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Sigil of House Stark, a Grey Direwolf
  • Alignment: Good
  • Portfolio: Honor Before Reason, Sacrificial Lion, Anyone Can Die
  • Domains: Death, Honor, Fatherhood
  • Followers: The Lords of the North,
  • Allies: Mami Tomoe
  • Enemies:
  • High Priest: Robb Stark
  • Despite having ascended to godhood himself, he still has a godswood in his domain that he prays to. He doesn't see himself worthy of being a god in his own eyes, and still holds the old gods as higher than him.
  • As he was horrified to find that a girl as young as her met a similar fate to him he decided to act as surrogate father to Mami Tomoe. Ned feels that she reminds her of his own daughters

What is the policy for series spoilers on the Pantheon?

3 episodes doesn't seem to be long enough to qualify as one. If Surprise Death has a trope page that's similar, he could get one.

I second this update. Particularly the censored part about a certain wedding.

I'd like to propose an idea for a God of Serial Killers. Here's what I have in mind.

Jack The Ripper, God of Serial Killers (The Whitechapel Murderer, Leather Apron, and various identities across The Multiverse)

  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: a shadowy man wearing a top hat and cloak.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Potfolio: Unsolved Mysteries, Shrouded in Myth, Left-Handed Killers, NOT Disposable Sex Workers, Historical In-Jokes about Victorian London
  • Domains: Death, Terror, Darkness, Murder
  • The legendary serial killer who once stalked the streets of London at the end of the Nineteenth Century. Now he stalks the grounds of the Pantheon as the God of Serial Killers.
  • No one knows who Jack The Ripper's real idenitity was in Real Life and theories about who he was are numerous. In the pantheon this gave him an extraordinary power, the ability shapeshift into any incarnation of the legend of Jack The Ripper he wants to be. Given the influence he's had, there are many versions of him (or her, or it depending the universe) across The Multiverse to choose from.
  • Dispite his reputation, many of Jack's incarnations are often on the recieving end of an ass-kicking or working as a minor underling to someone else.

A good fill, but you will need to have mentions of occasionally, he was played for chumps. Like how he, in Jo Jos Bizarre Adventure... gets to be a minor underling of Dio Brando.

Jan 2nd 2013 at 1:48:57 PM •••

Alright, I took your suggestion. Is what I put suitable?

Jan 2nd 2013 at 6:38:47 PM •••

Pretty good, but you should also add up why despite all those ass-kicking he got he still retained his Godhood.

Hmm, any suggestions?

I'd like to propose Epsilon as a God of Rebirth by Memory. This is what I have so far.

Epsilon, God of Rebirth by Memory (Leonard Church)

  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Greek letter "Epsilon"
  • Allignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Memory, taking levels in kindness, still being a rotten shot with a sniper rifle, a walking Late-Arrival Spoiler
  • Domain: Memory, Undead, Robot, Artificial Intelligence
  • Followers: Michael J. Caboose, who helped him ascend to semi-godhood once.
  • Allies: Agent Carolina, Primus and his followers (Epsilon fully accepts his own identity as a robot), Kamina (who likes Epsilon's attitude compared to Alpha's)
  • Enemies: The Director of Project Freelancer, Kyubey, Bernkastel
  • Rivals: Alpha
  • While Epsilon was always the Living Memory of Alpha, he never really ascended until he managed to unlock all of Alpha's memories (even the ones that Alpha doesn't remember).
  • Though he is a Nice Guy, Epsilon does have a Berserk Button in the form of people with a penchant for emotional torture, as they bring back horrible memories. When he gets angry, he starts ranting and grows to a massive size. Since that pushed his friends away once, Epsilon is trying to control it.
  • Since the Incubators are known for harvesting emotion for their goals, and Alpha was fragmented due to an induced despair, Epsilon has a dislike towards the Incubators.
  • Has a rival in Alpha, his original self. The two are scheduled to have a sniper duel in the House of Combat. Don't expect either of them to actually hit the other.

I'll go and add it if nobody protests.

I realize that we haven't gotten a deity for I Let Gwen Stacy Die... Seriously, it's one trope we need a rep for. But what kind of name would it get, one name that doesn't invoke the Trope Namer? "Anguish-causing Deaths"?

And then there's the candidates. I can only think of...

Pitch in your ideas here.

Yeah, I'd agree on that one. Only seen the first movie, though, so I'm really not the guy to write up a portfolio for him.

Jun 5th 2012 at 11:48:24 PM •••

Okay, well I'll ask some of the others and see what they think.

Also, what do you think about the God of Paladins being Artix von Kreiger? If you don't know who he is, in his game he slays undead (and has lots of fun doing so), but in reality he is the Champion of Darkness who can defeat monsters by being an Undead Slayer.

I would like to propose an entry for Ridley as The Unkillable. I know we've got Rasputin, Kenny, and Kyosuke for Rasputinian Death, Back from the Dead, and Surviving That, but then Ridley pretty much combines the latter two.

Entry going something like this:

Ridley The Unkillable

EDIT: Added Sigma as a follower. So then, enough bumps to add him?

Followers: Sigma (He's known for getting killed in every game and yet surviving all of them and going back in the next game, up until X8. The Virus is what keeping him alive all the time.)

Sigma is pretty much a close contender to Ridley, honestly.

Mar 15th 2012 at 5:13:44 AM •••

Ah. Haven't played most of the Megaman games. Maybe have them as co-gods?

No, just make him a follower. Unless someone else agree with you. =)

Sigma's a follower now. Anyone else? Would Xehanort count as well? As a follower, I mean. The dude's literally appeared in some form in every KH game except Chain of Memories and Re:coded.

Not sure about him, really... The first time, it was himself, then it's his Heartless, and then it's his Nobody. While they come from one source, they are different from each other.

Mar 17th 2012 at 8:41:30 PM •••

And then presumably himself again in Dream Drop Distance and KHIII proper when it comes out, but I see what you mean.

Information on Nekron:

With the recent events of Blackest Night, what with Nekron's goal of killing the White Entity, the source of all life in DCU, revealed, we probably should up-grade Nekron into full-on Overdeity status, and update his portfolio.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
