    A gargoyle monster formed from a statue of the Chief God in Salvarision.

    Gods, also known as higher divinities, are the most powerful beings in the Monster Girl Encyclopedia world [1]. At least some of them existed before the world itself, and were responsible for the creation of it [2] and all the living things within it.


    The "classical" white-wings-and-angelic-choirs gods reside in Heaven, a spirit realm dimension above the clouds which is inaccessible to mortals and monsters[3]. Here the higher divinities dwell in vast palaces, while the "lesser divinities", such as angels and valkyries, live in castle towns serving their patron deity. These are the gods worshiped by the Order, with the Chief God exalted highest among them.

    Aside from Heaven, some gods occupy their own relevant area of influence, e.g. Poseidon under the sea, or the Fallen God in her own dimension of absolute depravity, Pandemonium. Where Ares and Eros make their lairs is not clear. Each of the gods have their own interests, and not all follow the ultra-anti-monster policy set by the Chief God. The Fallen God and Poseidon are in open rebellion as monsterized beings themselves, and while Ares and Eros both nominally toe the party line, they both grant boons to humans and monsters who adhere to their teachings. Exactly where the cat-goddess Bastet sits in the celestial sphere isn't clear, but she has some human adherents as well as the affection of many feline monster girls.

    The divinities are distinguished by having "vastly more power than the average human or monster" [4], but humans (and monsters) still sometimes end up worshiping things that actually aren't gods, even though they have real ones to pick from. The nation of Zipangu seems especially prone to this heresy, with ryu and inari cults and their respective shirohebi and kitsune-tsuki attendants, which is not to say other regions don't commit similar errors; both snake cultism and the Elemental Faith consider certain powerful (but ultimately non-divine) creatures to be gods [5]. The one (formerly) mortal creature that actually has enough power and metaphysical clout [6] to potentially be considered on the same level as the higher divinities - the Mamono Lord - apparently isn't worshiped by anyone. Either the Fallen God or the non-theistic Sabbath serve instead for most monster girls' religious needs.

    The mutability of the gods in the Monster Girl Encyclopedia world is an open question. At the very least, they can be monsterized or prove conspicuous by their absence, but actual clear-cut births or deaths remain somewhat mysterious. What is known is that gods and humans can reproduce and produce offspring together; these demigods are closer to gods than humans, and while weaker than most gods, can have abilities gods lack.[7]. On this note, World Guide 3 confirmed gods can die, noting how difficult it is to use necromancy to resurrect a god. Eros is also noted to have made an elixir of life for the gods called amrita, suggesting that their lifespans have been enhanced by this.

    List of Gods

    This list just includes entities that really are gods; excluding, as mentioned above, those (usually Zipanguan) mamono who might entertain some worshippers.
    • The First Chief God - Said to be the creator of the world. Original Chief Deity. Allegiance and whereabouts unknown. 
    • The Current Chief God - Current Chief Deity. Worshiped by the Order of the Chief God. Vehemently anti-monster. Badly weakened and injured in battle against Lilith and her husband, she has remained in Heaven ever since, speaking to humans through oracles and empowering heroes to fight monsters.
    • The Fallen God - The monsterized deity that rules over the Spirit Realm of Pandemonium. Sided with the Mamono Lord after monsterization. Original domain and allegiance not known. Actively encourages the monsterization of humans. Worshiped by the Dark Priests, Dark Angels, and Dark Valkyries.
    • The Sun God - Deity that ruled over the Desert Kingdoms and empowered the Pharaohs, fought alongside the Pharaohs against the Apophis during the start of the age of the former Mamono Lords, and also created the Genies. Allegiance and whereabouts unknown, but implied to have been killed alongside many of the Pharaohs.
    • God of the Sea, Poseidon - Initially aligned with the Chief God, but has since sided with the Mamono Lord (the Chief God's command for her to kill monsters and humans alike en masse being the final straw for Poseidon) and become monsterized. Sea Bishops are granted power by Poseidon, allowing those at risk for drowning the ability to breathe underwater. Wadatsumi may be the name she is known by in Zipangu, where the Umi Osho perform a similar role to the Sea Bishops.
    • God of Fighting, Ares - Decidedly neutral, but known to give boons to her worshipers in battle, monster and human alike. Her worshipers include humans and various monster races. Her powers are believed to be one reason deaths in battles between human and monster armies are very few.
    • God of Love, Eros - Officially neutral, but in practice very pro-monster. It's speculated her role among the gods is so important that they are willing to ignore her acceptance of monsters. She is also known to reward mortals who perform good deeds with one of her many servants. Said servants include Houris, Cupids, Gandharvas and Apsaras. Its notable that her angels are so like monsters, that even when monsterized, there is barely any difference in their behavior.
    • Cat Goddess, Bastet - Presides over the Cat Spirit Realm. Monsterized and sides with the Mamono Lord.
    • God of Wine, Bacchus - Officially neutral, but their scriptures do not include any condemnation of monsters, and they are worshiped by humans and various monster races. Satyros in particular are devoted.
    • Goddess of Life and Death, Hel - Monsterized and sides with the Mamono Lord.
    • God of Smithing, Hephaestus - Neutral, blesses humans with superhuman concentration and surgical precision, allowing them to create weapons and armor favored by the gods.
    • God of Sexual Love, Mara[8] - A rival and friend to Eros.

    List of Minor Gods

    • God of Art - People blessed by him can create masterpiece paintings or songs that are so magical people can be overwhelmed by emotions just by taking a glimpse of it. Allegiance unknown.
    • God of Knowledge - People blessed by him can become scholars with inhuman capabilities like the ability to process things inside their head with computer-like speed. Allegiance unknown.

    List of Faiths

    • The Order of the Chief God - The largest and most mainstream of religions amongst humans and non-monster races. It is headquartered in a large nation sharing its name, headed by a Pope. It espouses that there are multiple gods, the Chief God being prime among them, but there are several sects within it dedicated to gods other than the Chief God. Some gods have been rejected from the pantheon due to siding with monsters in the ongoing conflict, others who are more neutral, granting blessings to humans, as well as monsters, are tolerated, though viewed with suspicion. It considers monsters to be inherently evil, though exceptions for especially peaceful monsters are made, and the anti-monster fervor varies from kingdom to kingdom. Most Angels follow the gods of this pantheon. Worship of gods who have been monsterized is considered heretical (let alone worshipping monsters as gods directly, per se).
    • The Fallen Faith - The faith surrounding the Fallen God who resides in Pandemonium, their worshipers focus on the corruption of the pure into hedonistic indulgence, prime among the adherents are Dark Angels and Dark Priests. Adherents often perform 'missionary' work converting others to the faith and corrupting them, but upon obtaining a partner they like, these duties cease. Many worshipers will make a pilgrimage to Pandemonium with their partner to experience never-ending pleasure.
    • Elementalism - A faith worshipping various elementals, and exalts those with close ties with Elementals, such as Trolls. It is unknown how the faith is tolerated in Order lands, but it is split between two factions, those who believe that monsterized elementals are a natural evolution for Elementals and should be exalted, and those who believe that monsterized elementals have been corrupted.
    • Snake Cultism - A monster-worshipping faith which exalts serpentine monsters, and apparently has a Snake God at its head, though this may be just a term for Echidnas. Its adherents use various rituals to turn human women in their ranks into members of the Lamia family, while male members seek to become the husbands of Lamia family monsters. The highest goal is to become an Echidna themselves, but since such a ritual is also the most difficult and lengthy, most members are satisfied with seeking to become lower tier types of Lamia.
    • Ryu Worship - Ryu, native to the Zipangu region, are often worshiped as water gods for their ability to control the weather and call rain. Men are gifted to them as husbands, who the Ryu use to gather enough essence to call the rain when needed. The Ryu is attended by Shirohebi.
    • Kitsune Worship - Inari are often worshiped in shrines in Zipangu. Occasionally, the Inari will produce Kitsune-bi and turn their shrine maidens into Kitsune-tsuki.
    • Tezcatlipoca Worship - The Ocelomeh revere these other monsters as gods, practising a violent faith of bestial lust.

    Divinities (MGE1, p211)[edit]

    A general name for the gods, with the chief god who is said to have created the world at the top. Beings that rule the world and humans from heaven, and spread their own teachings to humans through The Order. They also sometimes given humans instructions directly as oracles. Heaven is a hierarchical society. There's a huge division between the greater divinities, who are the gods, and the lesser divinities, who are angels. Furthermore, the gods and angels themselves are divided into many different classes. Even the lowest among the lesser divinities who are Angels, posses vastly more power than the average human or monster. Speaking of the power of the higher angels and gods, it is even more tremendous.

    The Chief God According to The Order (MGE1)[edit]

    It is the omnipotent and omniscient creator god who gave birth to humans and subdued many of the other gods. The chief god is gently watching over humans. Sometimes it extends a hand to steer humans in the right direction. As of the present, the wicked mamono lord who emerged from the darkness is working from the shadows to destroy humans, the servants of the chief god. In order to protect humans from the mamono lord, humans are being divinely protected through God's power and given the power of “heroes.” From time to time, it dispatches lesser divinities to The Order, bestows great power and blessings to the knights and heroes, and joins them in the fight against the monsters.

    The Truth (MGE1)[edit]

    As far as I know about the truth of this world, the teachings of The Order seem to include a lot of falsehoods. From here on, I'm going to introduce a story that goes to the heart of this world. First off, it's true that the chief god created the world and humans. But the mamono lord and the monsters were included as part of the “world” that the chief god created. Saying that the mamono lord is a being who emerged from the darkness is a huge lie on the part of the gods and The Order. Monsters are, in essence, beings that are higher on the food chain than humans. They're living creatures the chief god created so that it could adjust the number of humans. The mamono lord who The Order insists is wicked, was created as a control device so that the gods could control the monsters. As in the present, the mamono lord's mamono mana has always been linked with all monsters. By giving the mamono lord directives, the chief god is able to indirectly control the monsters. Whenever civilization flourishes, and humans increase too much in number, it turns the monsters vicious as in the age of the former mamono lord, killing large amounts of humans, thereby thinning their numbers. And then, when humans start to die out, this time the monsters increase too much in number, so this time it gives humans incredible power, creating “heroes,” and sending them to slay the mamono lord. After the mamono lord is slain, the monsters kill each other to decide the next mamono lord, and until a mamono lord is decided, their number keeps decreasing on its own. And then, when humans reach prosperity once again, and begin increasing in number, a new mamono lord is born as a control device from amongst the monsters.

    And then, the entire process repeats itself. This is the world's system. The system was running perfectly until a certain succubus became mamono lord and caused the system to start malfunctioning. The mamono lord used her mamono mana which is linked to all monsters to start overwriting the traits instilled in the monsters from the time when God created them: “Monsters are beings that are higher existences than humans, and monsters are beings that live by eating humans.”

    Naturally, the chief god was furious. She tried to eliminate the mamono lord. She gave the power to slay the mamono lord to a hero according to the system at the time, but since the hero betrayed the chief god and went on the side of the mamono lord, the attempt at eliminating the mamono lord ended in failure. The strongest of the monsters, the mamono lord, and the strongest of humanity, the hero, joined hands to create a new world together. The mamono lord who is a succubus, and the hero who was made an incubus by their hands, can increase each other's power infinitely by continuously having sex due to their nature. Their power has already reached the level of a god, and not even the chief god was able to destroy them. The chief god was gravely wounded in the battle, and as of the present, she can't move freely, so she's manipulating humans into doing her bidding through the church, giving many humans the power of a “hero,” and frequently sending extermination squads at the mamono lord.

    So all that is the truth of this world. It's already a myth level story. It doesn't feel real to me either. If The Order knew I had written something like this, I bet I'd probably be executed immediately. Whether or not this nonsense of mine is to be believed is up to you who have taken the book in hand. On the same occasion, I was able to ask the mamono lord herself about her future vision for this world that she's trying to change, so I'll summarize it later on.

    For those of you who wonder whether this story is true, the mamono lord and hero are both alive and well. Go visit the mamono realm and ask them directly yourself. That is, if you're confident that you won't get caught by monsters along the way.

    The Other Gods (MGE1)[edit]

    Now let's get back on course after that crazy story from before. There are many other beings called gods besides just the chief god. The chief god is trying to fix the system that the mamono lord threw out of whack, but it seems not all of the gods think that way.

    “The Fallen God” was consumed by devilish pleasure, corrupted, and changed into a monster while still possessing the power of a god. For the sake of the denizens of the sea whom she loved, “Poseidon, God of the Sea” joined them and went on the mamono lord's side. The alliances of the gods are never fixed and unchanging. Presently, the mamono lord has several divinities as allies. The chief god is in a position where it's getting harder and harder to strike at the mamono lord.
