Poseidon is the god of the sea. He offers boons to Zagreus that significantly increase the damage of his abilities, as well as cause his abilities to inflict Knockback.

Poseidon boons offer some of the highest damage increases in Hades, as well as the ability to knock enemies around, dealing extra wall slam or trap damage.

His signature Status Curse is Ruptured, which rapidly deals damage to enemies as they move, dealing more damage the faster they move. Ruptured not only affects an enemy's movement, but also affects the movement from various other Knockback effects.

Affinity[edit | edit source]

If given Nectar, Poseidon will give you the Conch Shell.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...The Master of the Seas, the Earthshaker, Brother to Lord Hades and Lord Zeus... the Lord Poseidon. I am ever grateful that, while I was living, he was merciful to me. Down here, however, I must say I rarely feel his influence. All of us... we are beneath him, now. How many of my brethren did he drown during my mortal days? He comes across as affable, yet I've not forgiven him. Lord Hades seems to have no love for him, either, equating him to Zeus, and shunning both alike. It's all a business best avoided by my estimation.'

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Many of Poseidon's boons apply Knockback to your abilities. Knockback causes an ability to push an enemy an additional distance away from Zagreus, in the direction they were attacked from. Knockback effects can help enable environmental damage from Wall Slams and Traps. Knockback effects also combo well with Poseidon's Status Curse, Ruptured, which deals damage to enemies when they move. Area bosses have immunity against Knockback, but will be affected by Rupture damage.
