Hades is the God of the Realm of the Dead. The main antagonist of Volume 11 and Volume 12, aiding Khaos Brigade's Old Satan Faction and Hero Faction behind the scenes in a scheme to destroy the Devils and Fallen Angels. He commands a legion of Grim Reapers. He later returns as one of the main antagonists of the last arc.


Hades has the appearance of a skeleton dressed in attire worn by high priests. He gives off a creepy aura. Despite having no eyes, his eye sockets can glow to give the appearance of eyes.


Hades despises beings of other mythologies, especially Devils and Fallen Angels, believing that they are unnecessary beings, calling them bats (referring to the Devil's wings) and crows (referring to the Fallen Angel's wings). It is important to note that despite his hatred of the other mythologies, he is not an Evil God. His goal is to rid the world of these beings as he calls them an annoyance. Hades is also disgusted that Zeus is cooperating with the Three Factions. He seems to refer to reincarnated beings as "fakes", seen when he calls Dulio a "fake angel".


One of the Trinity Gods of Olympus, Hades is one of the Gods that have been active since the ancient times, ruling the Realm of the Dead.
