Typhon is the King of the Monsters of Greek mythology. He is serving as King for the God Alliance team in the Azazel Cup.
Typhon is described as a thirty-meters-tall blue-skinned giant with wings on his back, the upper body of a human and the lower body of a snake.
According to Vidar, Typhon has a selfish personality as he wanted to become the leader of his team to which Vidar and Apollon accepted. He is interested on fighting powerful opponents such as Issei Hyoudou who is a possessor of one of the Two Heavenly Dragons. Typhon is a battle maniac as he wanted to fight Issei even though it was Vidar's fight as well as his desire to fight one on one against Ddraig despite being outmatched and him retiring would cause Team Leisure of Kings to lose.
Red Dragon Emperor of the Blazing Truth × White Dragon Emperor of the Morning Star: The True Dragon(s) of the Kuoh Academy
Typhon reappeared in Volume 25, appearing at the Thor Stadium in Valhalla for his upcoming match against Team Red Dragon Emperor of the Blazing Truth. He ascended from the sky and appeared in front of his opponents, cheerfully shouting that he gets to fight a Heavenly Dragon and he was looking forward to the match. As the match started, Typhon began to fly to Yggdrasil and pointed out who will be his opponent and was fine if it was Issei. Typhon then faced off against Bova Tannin, Roygun Belphegor, and Elmenhilde Karnstein.
The fight between them was completely one sided as Typhon toyed with them, relentlessly unleashing his attacks with them only managing to avoid them due to Roygun's Crack ability. Typhon praised them for surviving despite being weaker than him as they continued the battle.
Typhon appeared alongside Apollon to aid Vidar who was still fighting Issei, stating to Issei that Roygun would retire soon due to exhaustion while praising her once more. He wanted to fight Issei so he offered to take Vidar's place which Vidar denied before witnessing Ddraig's resurrection. Excitedly, he challenged the Heavenly Dragon to a fight as he unleashed bolts of lighting that didn't damage him in the slightest. Ddraig retaliated with his fire breath which Typhon tried to extinguish the fire by using a strong wind which proved futile as the Titan was bathed in flames. The King of Monsters and the Heavenly Dragon continued their fight as intense battle escalated to mythological levels and shook the foundation of the artificial Yggdrasil. Their fight did not reach a conclusion until Issei defeated Vidar at which point Ddraig retired Typhon thus ending the match with Team Red Dragon Emperor of the Blazing Truth's victory.
