Hades

Who is Hades? Edit

Hades is the main antagonist of the Kid Icarus series. As with Greek Mythology he is the Lord of the Underworld and is depicted as a purple and red skinned human-like figure with red and green hair. Initially Hades is shown as mischievous and a manipulative trickster. Also speaking with him shows him as sarcastic and cruel along with having a sense of showmanship and arrogance. He also has a flirtatious side making flattering comments to female characters. However, deep down Hades is a merciless psychopath with no regard for life. He enjoys the killing of people, no matter how close they are to him and uses souls as a source of energy or materials to create monsters.

While he makes no appearance in the first two games it is a popular theory that he is behind the events of the stories given the presence of his Underworld Army. In Uprising Hades revives Medusa and uses her as a distraction against Palutena and Pit in order to further his own plans.

Summer 2013 Contest - Division 5 - 12 Seed

It was thought Hades would perform well due to the benefit from being known in pop culture along with Greek Mythology. However, not looking like Disney's Hades probably made that benefit minimal as Hades was blown out by Gordon Freeman. While Kid Icarus: Uprising was a hype release it is still a niche Nintendo series.
