If you are competitive at all, chances are that you'll want to visit the Pantheons every so often. They are Godville's leader boards. The Pantheons rank different things within the game: some rank guilds, or the most powerful heroes and heroines, for example. These leaderboards constantly change. Most are updated hourly, but a few are only updated a certain number of times per day.
Before the May 2012 update, there were three categories of Pantheon:
- Pantheons by Gods — These ranked the best gods and goddesses according to certain aspects, and rank things that they participate in, for example, guilds.
- Pantheons by Heroes — These ranked heroes, heroines, and their pets for different qualities they may had and acts they had accomplished.
- Pantheons by Impact — These ranked the influence heroes and heroines had in certain areas and the impact they had on the world around them.
- Short Term Pantheons — These rank heroes and heroines by properties which are forever changing. These Pantheons only include players who have been active some time in the last 5 days. Inactive players are removed from, and returning players replaced into, the Short-Term Pantheons with each new issue of the Godville Times.
- Long Term Pantheons — These rank heroes, heroines, gods, and goddesses by qualities which tend to remain fairly constant over time.
- Guild Pantheons — These rank guilds by their various guild properties.
At the beginning it is extremely difficult to climb most Pantheons, but it gets easier as a hero's level increases. Some Pantheons are exclusive to certain groups, and others are open to all. Difficulty in gaining or maintaining a high place in each Pantheon varies greatly with the Pantheon type, and some change more quickly than others.

Competing Pantheons and Achievements
It is impossible to have a high position in all Pantheons at once. Gods and goddesses must prioritize different Pantheon statuses and in-game achievements, forcing them to budget their power.
- Destruction and Creation rank cruel and kind personalities, and one cannot be in both at the same time.
- Destruction may have a negative effect on Survival, as evil heroes may die more.
- Survival and the Martyr achievement.
- Lower-level heroes place above higher-level heroes with the same score in the Pantheon of Gratitude, so climbing in the Pantheon of Might can reduce your position in Gratitude.
- Completing your temple removes your hero or heroine from the Pantheon of Construction in order to take their permanent position in Templehood.
- Any Pantheon that could benefit from miracles, such as the Pantheon of Popularity or Survival reduces the godpower spent on the alignment Pantheons.
- Working on either alignment in town can increase Popularity, as well as the Saint and Fiend Achievements.
- Melting bricks with influences can help both alignment and construction.
- Guild members above Chief Master rank duelling in the arena affects the guild's Duelery score, as well as affecting individual Gladiatorship ratings.
- Adventures — duelling (Gladiatorship), dungeoning (Arkeology), sailing (Catch), and digging for boss-monsters — by Chief Masters or above also contribute to the guild's Pantheon of Adventure.
- Destruction may help Might, as cruel heroes may gain XP and levels faster.
- Creation may help Survival, as kind heroes may die less often.
