Pantheons are a mechanic added to Godhome. They feature a select set of bosses to combat before reaching the "Peak" of each Pantheon and facing the unique final boss of each challenge. Most bosses, with the exception of the final bosses, need to be defeated outside Godhome first before the Pantheon can be accessed that contains those bosses.

Completing the first three Pantheons also unlocks Godseeker Mode.

The other exceptions to the general unlocking process there are as follows:

  • God Tamer is unlocked regardless of whether she has been faced.
  • Hidden Dreams Icon.png Grey Prince Zote is skipped and does not count as an unlock requirement for the third Pantheon if he was not defeated in the base game, including if Zote was left to die.
  • Lost Kin, Soul Tyrant, Failed Champion and Hidden Dreams Icon.png White Defender are all automatically unlocked once their real-world counterpart is defeated.
  • Grimm Troupe Icon.png Nightmare King Grimm appears whether he has been faced or not and does not count as an unlock condition.
  • Vengefly King is always unlocked regardless of whether it was encountered.


Bindings are optional challenges that can be applied to each separate Pantheon. Any combination of them can be applied. If all bindings are selected they glow a radiant yellow.

Completing Pantheons with bindings is required to access certain content such as extra Lifeblood Cocoons in each Pantheon's Hot Spring Room and the Land of Storms (see the respective pages for more information).

Nail Binding.png

Reduces Nail damage to 80% or sets it to 13 if the damage is above 13. For Nail levels 1/2/3/4/5 the resulting damage values are 4/7/10/13/13 respectively. This means the Coiled Nail and Pure Nail both provide the maximum amount of damage. Nail Arts damage is calculated based on this damage. (Note: This binding does NOT affect the damage of some Nail damage based charms, like Sharp Shadow, Thorns of Agony and Dreamshield.)

Shell Binding.png

Limits the Knight's maximum available Masks to four, but does not affect Lifeblood Masks or Masks granted by Fragile Heart/Grimm Troupe Icon.png Unbreakable Heart.

Charms Binding.png

Unequips all Charms and prevents equipping them again.

Soul Binding.png

Allows only 33% SOUL to be gathered and disables SOUL vessels, allowing for one Focus to heal or one Spell cast.
