Let's hope there's no other divine casters around. Did we ever find out who Zero's patron is?

I have to disagree with you there. Hades isn't cool... he's hot.

Depending on the Optimization level of the GM taking out a god as statted can either be as easy as fighting a lv40 warrior that always crits (aka slightly easier than the tarassque) or completely impossible by any method depending on wither or not the DM knows how to abuse Portfilio Sense and Alter Reality. Portfolio Sense gives the god an almost undefeatable foreknowledge of the attack while Alter reality can be used to permanently have every single beneficial spell effect they want on the Diety at CL40, If the DM is good at picking what happens during these multiple weeks of buff rounds then the God is going to win hands down even against a druid.

This is why, if you ever want something to NOT die around players, never give it stats.

This is specifically why the Lady of Pain does not have stats.

Come to think of it, has she ever had to slap a god or two around?
Getting mazed would be so much worse for an immortal being.

Yes. The Lady of Pain killed Aoskar the God of portals when he was getting a bit too much power in the city including a Dabus worshiper (they normally obey only the Lady herself). She blew up his temple and killed him. It was only centuries later that someone found his remains in the Astral plane.

Well, for once they leave poor Hades alone. On the other side, I think noone would want to have to deal with his workload...

"Pathfinder gods"
I didn't think that pathfinder stated its gods. I literally tried looking it up once and all I could find was a statement from someone in Pazio who said they didn't stat any of the gods because they didn't want player power creep from supplements to trivialize the gods as it did in DnD.

Did they change it?

Killing gods is tough. I mean you either need to kill them three times and make sure the same party member lands the killing blow or kill them in their home realm where they're most powerful. I suppose you could kill them once and then attack their reforming essence in their home plane but that would require finding an unformed being in a dimension that feels almost exactly like it when it comes to magical fingerprints. And that's if the rules haven't changed since the edition I got that knowledge from.
