You can try with (not personally tested)
Code:
# emerge $(EIX_LIMIT=0 eix -# media-fonts/*)

fedeliallalinea, Fulgurance, et al ... I'm not sure that's such a good idea as it will also include packages such as media-fonts/infinality-ultimate-meta (and you probably want to use the 'truetype:interpreter-version=40' ... the default in =media-libs/freetype-2.7.x). You will also get a whole bunch of files in /etc/fonts/* that might prove difficult to manage, and/or provide conflicting font substitions. Also, you can't possibly need all those fonts ... given that some exist for the purposes of having a Urdu, Nepali, etc, localisation (whereas something like media-fonts/noto would be sufficent for any pdf, webpage, etc).

Okay, media-fonts/noto would are be sufficient ?

I would like to install all fonts because i search specific font, but i don't remember names. I search console and terminal type fonts. And i would like to install many fonts for have large choice for write or make game ...

If you have an image of the font, you can try to use one of online tool for match (e.g. this)

Fulgurance ... media-fonts/noto would provide a font for situations in which, say, you have a pdf, or webpage, that uses Greek, Russian, or some other non-latin script language. So, for instance, if you go to wikipedia, on the left there is a section "languages" pointing to language specific portals, with a font like noto you should see all of these displayed correctly. Other unicode fonts may work also, but noto is, I think, more comprehensive. It does not provide all the fonts a document might expect (like common Adobe/MS fonts) for these you need something like media-fonts/corefonts or media-fonts/liberation-fonts ... see the section picking fonts in the gentoo wiki font page.

Note that your "install many fonts for have large choice for write or make game[s]" is not how it works, fonts in a document (and I assume games are similar ITR) are generally descriptions and the font is then provided by the system. Some documents may have embeded fonts, or the system provides 'aliases' for font substitution, so having more fonts doesn't necessarily translate to a wider choice.
