    So I just found TVTropes Pantheon section.

    It's primarily based on popularity, but it would make for an epic showdown or phalla.

    Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn has a faceless, nameless NPC that the fandom calls the 3-13 Archer. Has been called the best character in the game. Has had fanfics devoted to him. Is known for having had entire strategies revolving around him.

    I like what the Pantheon says about Travis Touchdown.
    Is currently recognized as the fourth-best combatant in the Pantheon and is trying to requisition the funds for a Ranking Battle with Popeye. Fortunately for the rest of the Pantheon, the House of Commerce is running a series of scams on Travis to ensure he never gets the money.

    And does it work like Wikipedia with anyone-can-edit access? Because the villain gaming sections need more Lunar references.

    A section that's mostly for fun. Essentially what if a trope had a god(s), and what character would best represent it.

    A few examples from it:

    Spongebob Squarepants, God of Cash Cows
    Haruhi Suzumiya, Goddess of Tropes
    Fred Rogers, Ultimate God of Ultimate Showdowns of Ultimate Destinies (Mister Rogers)
    Sokka, God of Boomerangs (Meat and Sarcasm Guy, Wang Fire)
    Terry Pratchett, God of Trope Identification* (Pterry)
    Naoki Kashima, Fulcrum of Order and Chaos (Demi-Fiend, Hitoshura)




    * And footnotes

    John Gabriel and Tycho Brahe, Gods of Video Games (Gabe and Tycho)

    * Intermediate Gods
    * Symbol: A 20-sided die
    * Alignment: True Neutral
    * Portfolio: Gamers on Couches, Webcomic Artists, Author Avatars, Four-Point Scales, The Merch, Crazy Awesomeness
    * Domain: Competition, Fury, Portal
    * Opposed by: Jack Thompson

    Yahtzee, Demigod of Fast Talking and Video Game Page Quotes (Callipygian Superman, Charismatic Stallion, He Whose Name is Also A Game)

    * Demigod
    * Symbol: One of his weird little people
    * Alignment: Chaotic Evil
    * Portfolio: Cruel British (And Australians), Half-Empty Glasses, Use of Big Words with profanity
    * Domains: Chaos, Criticism, Humor

    The materiel on this site would be awesome for many a phalla game,
    Leeroy Jenkins, The Destroyer Of Philosophies

    * Intermediate God
    * Symbol: A mountain of fried chickens
    * Alignment: Chaotic Stupid
    * Portfolio: Plan-ruining Charges, The Berserker, Proclaiming One's Name Before Battle, Battle Cry With Emphasis
    * Domain: War, Battle, Destruction, Madness.
    * Opposed by: Everyone (Goddammit, Leeroy, you're just stupid as hell). Except Kamina (even Guy is appalled).
    * In times where there are war, Leeroy has many times screwed the Pantheons' battle plans by charging right to the battle and yells his battle cry "LEEROOOOOYYYY!! JEEEENKIIINS!". Lots of Pantheons, especially those of Knowledge, despise him for being so goddamn stupid. But at least he's got chickens.
    * Considers Kamina of the War Pantheon his soul brother, since they share their disdain on philosophy and reasoning.

    Stephen Colbert, God of Truthiness

    * Lesser God. Well, lesser than Stewart anyway.
    * Symbol: American Flag
    * Alignment: Lawful American
    * Portfolio: AMERICA!, Conservativism, Punditry, Truthiness, Wikiality, Patriotism, French-sounding pronunciation
    * Domain: Anger, Protection (especially for wrists)

    * Opposed by: Bears!
    * Ascended when enough people agreed he was a god, therefore making it true. Now seeking to clarify the Pledge of Allegiance by rewording it to "One nation under Colbert."

    I am not disappointed by the Pantheon.
    Zetta, Badass Freakin' Overlord of the Netherworld

    Greater God

    Symbol: The Sacred Tome (in which he is sealed)
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (post-sealing; previously Chaotic Evil)
    Portfolio: Sealed Evil In A Book, Butt Monkeys, Failed Attempts to Screw Destiny, Noble Demons, Heroic Sociopaths, Wish Givers, Prinnies
    Domain: Chaos, Creation, Domination, Hades, The Abyss
    Despite being confined to a book for a good portion of his life, Zetta still manages to control much of the underworld (at least, the parts not already owned by Laharl) with his ability to create anything he wants via the wishes of his subordinates.


    Lain Iwakura, Goddess of the Internet (Lady of the Wired)

    Intermediate Goddess

    Symbol: The Navi OS logon screen
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Portfolio: Cyberpunk, The Internet, Mind Screws, Obtuse Metaphors, Traffic, Telephone Poles, The Present Day, Split Personalities, Deletion of Existence
    Domains: Artifice, Celerity, Community, Dream, Knowledge, Mysticism
    Followers: Lan/Netto Hikari (Mega Man Battle Network), Yui Kasuga (Corrector Yui; also follows Sakura of the Magical Girls seat)
    Ascended to her spot in the Pantheon in mere microseconds, thanks to her overarching command of the "Information Superhighway" and the "Series of Tubes". No trucks, please. Al Gore and Ted Stevens contest her ascension.
    Has had quite a few discussions with Naoki Kashima on the nature of human society. Being that he's one of the few people who doesn't bug her for connections to the best the 'Tubes have to offer (at least...not as much as most), she tends to hang out with him a goodly amount of the time.
    Also likes to chat with Motoko Kusanagi and the Laughing Man, on the rare occasions they decide to log on at the same time. If Naoki's there too...well, the conversation will require a high-speed online encyclopedia and external memory devices to keep track.


    Wait, what?
    Neo, God of Simulations (The One, Mr. Anderson)
    Male Quasideity
    Symbol: A green "1" on a black background
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Portfolio: Badass Longcoats, Kung Fu, Self Fulfilling Prophecies, Roof Hopping, Third Options
    Domains: Air, Good, Liberation, Mysticism
    Although he is the Son of Lain, he usually reports to Aslan.
