Megaera is one of the three Fury Sisters and daughter of Nyx. She is sent by Hades to stop Zagreus from escaping the Underworld. Zagreus must defeat her before progressing to Asphodel during any given escape attempt.

After her first defeat, Megaera will join the House of Hades as a character that can be interacted with, though she will still attempt to stop Zagreus from entering Asphodel. She will be found drinking in the House's lounge, but only after a run in which she was defeated; if the lounge has yet to be re-opened, she will instead hang around in the hallway, on the opposite side of Zagreus's door from where Nyx usually stands.

Apparently, she's has been tasked with handling matters in Tartarus apart from her sisters; this includes dealing with Zagreus. According to Megaera, a war amongst the mortals has made the Underworld particularly busy, and her sisters are handling matters elsewhere.

If given Ambrosia, Megaera will give you the Skull Earring.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...The ancient Fury Sisters deal retribution for eternity against all those whose lives unspeakably befouled the lives of others. They each seem to relish their grim work, though none so much as Megaera, the first among them. Her whip is very much notorious around these parts, and there are those who say she is more than my equal in the martial ways, a conjecture I see no reason to test. Though she by all accounts appears to lead a solitary life, she and the Master's son do have some history; although I am not privy to the details, and know much better than to ask.'


Combat[edit | edit source]

Megaera has four abilities she will use throughout the fight. Two of them - her Lunge and Whip Whirl attacks - she will always begin the fight with access to. Volley and Flame become available at lower HP thresholds; which one becomes available first is random.

  • Lunge: Megaera pauses briefly and dashes towards Zagreus, dealing damage on impact.
  • Whip Whirl: Megaera attempts to get close to Zagreus and slashes her whip around her, dealing damage in an area.
  • Volley: Megaera fires a volley of rapid shots towards Zagreus, dealing minor damage on impact.
  • Flame: Megaera summons a random pattern of circles around Zagreus's current position, dealing damage if he is stood in them when they activate. Sometimes these patterns do not cover Zagreus's current position in an attempt to trick him into dodging into the circles.

Megaera may also summon reinforcements in the form of Thugs and Witches during the fight. She is invulnerable while summoning these reinforcements, and also becomes invulnerable for brief periods of time throughout the fight.
