Hey guys, new guy here, but I've been a fan of this site for a while.

I don't know if this is in good taste to do so, but due to his recent passing, and the legacy he's laid down, I think it would be great to see Monty Oum as the God of Motion Capture.

It is still too soon, give it a few days or even weeks and talk about it in the main discussion. It may seem like trying to be a nice tribute to him but right now it just seems disrespectful.

That sounds like a nice idea, but I was thinking of him being the god of

Doing Art For the Awesome

Now that I think about it, that would fit Monty much, much better.

Apr 21st 2015 at 8:05:57 PM •••

Well, I think it's been a long enough time to allow Monty Oum to have a profile here in the Pantheon. I already have a template for him here: Nightelf37

While you're there, please try and spruce up the other entries I have there.

For the House of Theater, there aren't actually many characters from theater. We should try to fix that. Some ideas: Sweeney Todd (from Sweeney Todd) as God of Villian Protagonists (and revenge, maybe?) Stephen Sondheim as God of Musical Theatre Mama Rose (from Gypsy) as Goddess of Stage Mothers Roxie Hart (from Chicago) as Godess of Doing Anything For Fame (or something similar) The Leading Player (from Pippin) as God/ess of Dramatics

In honor of Robin William's passing, I wonder if we could put him in somewhere, but for what I don't know. God of the Sad Clowns perhaps?

Just a thought... or maybe it's a bit too soon. My apologies.

Soooooo. I put Roger Rabbit in as the god of medium blending. He's down at the bottom. Could somebody go over and see how it works?

I have a suggestion here, I think this is overdue. Is there any trope we can do to put in Nicolas Cage in? Not just because of 'Nicolas Cage Month' The Nostalgia Critic did, but you've got to admit, this guy's batshit insane hamming skills is something to behold. He's also involved in two memes: The "YOU DON'T SAY??" image and the "NOT THE BEES!!" one.

What says you? Any help?

Well I suppose since he's making a career out of it, he could be the God for Ham and Cheese. So, here's a mock portfolio for him.

Nicolas Cage, God of Bad Movie-saving Overreacting (Nicolas Coppola, Peter Loew, Castor Troy/Sean Archer, Edward Malus, Johnny Blaze, Big Daddy)

The pic for Overlord Zenon does not fit. Chapter 9 reveals the person depicted in the pic to actually be an imposter posing as Overlord Zenon. The real Zenon may have been a girl in her past life. The current real Zenon is female.

Despite being a pony fan, I just can't help but think the God of Stage Magic should be the Wizard of Oz, especially after the new prequel. I mean, he's amazing enough at stage magic to fool real witches. And Trixie could be his High Priestess or something.

Either that, or the Wizard could be added as God of Men Behind The Curtain? Assuming we don't have one yet.

Edited by Arachnos Hide/Show Replies
Mar 11th 2013 at 4:38:57 PM •••

I agree, the Wizard seems much more fitted to that role.

Mar 11th 2013 at 7:16:27 PM •••

(Just to clarify, which of the two roles are you talking about - Stage Magic or The Man Behind the Curtain? Or both?)

Mar 21st 2013 at 7:38:52 PM •••

You're right on that, and the Wizard of Oz was a magician before Trixie. Arachos, go ahead and change the Stage Magic position. Trixie will have a chance to shine soon enough.

Also, which version of the Wizard are you gonna do? The prequel movie, the original book series and will you also do Wicked canon?

Mar 22nd 2013 at 7:28:01 PM •••

I don't know Wicked canon well enough, I do remember reading the book a while ago, but I don't remember much of it.

I'm tempted to go for prequel, since it's very fresh in my mind and impressed me, but original is probably more fitting, being the original and all. I guess I'll try to go a sort of amalgamation of the two or something?

I'll get to it as soon as possible.

Mar 23rd 2013 at 12:05:33 PM •••

Okay. We can state that he ascended to the pantheon after he was on the hot air balloon at the end of the original book, and that he's friends with Glinda. As for Elphaba (who's in the House of Heroes), say that the two have an 'uneasy' relationship (since Oz in his prequel accidentally created the Wicked Witch of the West)

Mar 23rd 2013 at 3:19:19 PM •••

And done. Any improvements would be welcome!

Was not sure what alignment he would have - in the prequel he goes from a rather Chaotic Neutral to Lawful Good, but in the original book and movie he is pretty shifty again.

So what should be done with Trixie?

Mar 23rd 2013 at 6:05:59 PM •••

Well, seeing as she has redeemed herself at her latest appearance, she could probably be his high priestess. Also, Trixie has decided to become the "Great and Apologetic Trixie" but finding an exact trope for her will be difficult for now.

For our Wizard, if he was Lawful Good at the end of the prequel then Lawful Neutral should be when he was in the book/movie.

Steven Blum possible Candidate for God of English Dubbing?

Roddy Piper, God of Talk Show with Fists (Hot Rod, Roderick Toombs)

  • Theme Song: "The Green Hills of Tyrol"
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A kilt or a coconut
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portofilio: Ax-Crazy, Bagpipes, Kilts, Wild Card, Violent Glaswegian, Talk Show with Fists
  • Domains: Scotsmen, Controversy, Craziness
  • Followers: Brutus Beefcake, Chris Jericho, Christian, The Miz, Abraham Washington.
  • Opposed by: Hulk Hogan
  • Upon ascension, Piper immediately brought back the Pit and featured a number of Gods on the show, almost of all them ending in violence.
  • Despite his level, he's one of the more dangerous gods in the Pantheon due to his general unpredictability. "Just when they think they've got the answers, I CHANGE THE QUESTIONS."

Have an idea for God of Monster Clown. Upon discussion in the main section, it was recommended to go here (since clowns are a type of performer).

Does the concept of Crazy Awesome really fit here? seems more like an emotional thing of some sort.

Feb 18th 2012 at 12:01:12 AM •••

Have some candidates for the god/goddess of Cold-Blooded Torture.

1. Asdurbael Vect. Major leader of the Dark Eldar, an entire race of depraved space elves who's sustanance is torture, the more gruesome and horrifying, the better. Considered the most evil faction in all of 40k.

2. Shion Sonozaki. It's really saying something when in an famously dark and brutal series full of High Octane Nightmare Fuel, the crap she pulls in the "Eye Opening" and "Cotton Drifting" story arc alone takes up much of the page, not to mention her arc being the darkest of all the story arcs.

Edit: Since the discussion got nowhere, I decided to go with Vect.

All the drama associated with it. Kind of a hard trope to classify really. The House of Heroes and Villains is not appropiate though Torture Technician certainly is.

I'd like to object to having Zenon as one of the gods... seeing as thats essentially giving ROZALIN the position. Like it or not, after the good ending of Disgaea 2, they're essentially one and the same.

EDIT: To elaborate, Rozalin has been Zenon's host body since she was a baby, hence she is essentially Zenon. This is shown at the end of Disgea 2 by the fact that even during the Cooldown Hug by Adell, which has her back to normal look, she tries to insist she's a "being of solitude", a line only Zenon had used.

Edited by LeoniteRider Hide/Show Replies

True, but the Zenon that's being used is from the other endings, especially THAT ending, i.e. the one so infamous that it commonly gets compared to Silent Hill, the NICE BOAT ending, and Higurashi, not to mention nearly being the cause of an M rating (if not for the edit).

I'd say keep her, as we have two problems that arise. 1. Who do we bring in to replace the tropes represented. Real Zenon is a very strong example of Knight of Cerebus and especially Cruel Twist Ending. 2. What Disgaea villain could we use to vacate the villain hole that would arise? The only one I could think of in terms of being worthy of a posistion would be Judge Nemo. That creates another question; what trope do we use him for? Humans Are Bastards (his big thing) is already taken and I don't know if Despair Event Horizon is already taken. either.

Anyone for Maya Kitajima (of Garasu no Kamen) as the Goddess of Stage Acting? Here's what I've got:

Maya Kitajima, Goddess of Stage Acting (She of a Thousand Masks, That Girl is Scary, The Crimson Goddess)

  • Demigoddess (Intermediate Goddess once she masters the role of the Crimson Goddess)
  • Symbol: a lot of different masks. Alternatively, a purple rose.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Oblivious to Love, Always Someone Better, Training From Hell, The Determinator
  • Domain: Orphans, Stage Actresses, Dramas
  • Followers: Ayumi Himekawa, Chigusa Tsukikage
  • Allies: William Shakespeare, Sora Naegino.
  • Will upgrade to Intermediate Goddess once she masters the role of Crimson Goddess (aka when the mangaka gets over her hiatus and finishes the story)
  • After finding her Purple Rose Person, she still thinks that Masumi Hayami is a bad guy.
  • Shakespeare is still trying to get her to perform in his greatest work. She refuses because she wants to finish the Crimson Goddess first.
  • Is good friends with Sora Naegino thanks to their similar work ethic, personality, and life story.

Does Evangeline really belong here? I would think she goes in Personal Appearance instead.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
