Hades is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Inevitably, death sends everyone to Hades, God of the Underworld. In the end, he always gets his way.

Eldest son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea, Hades was swallowed by his father as an infant along with five other siblings. Zeus, the youngest brother, escaped this fate and freed them once he’d grown strong enough to battle Cronus. Together, the six siblings defeated the Titans and banished them to the dark realm of Tartarus. Now the reigning Gods, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades drew lots for dominion. Hades drew the Underworld.

Of the few that have entered the Underworld and come back, all speak dismally of the place, never wishing to return. Yet Hades, himself, rarely leaves the subterranean realm, constantly seeking ways to grow the numbers of the dead.

When he desired a wife, Hades captured the radiant Persephone, daughter of the Goddess Demeter. Concealed in the Underworld, none could reach her, so Demeter cursed the land with a great famine. The other Gods pleaded with her to end it lest she destroy mankind, but she would not relent until her daughter was returned. Hades finally let Persephone leave, though not before feeding her pomegranate seeds. Having consumed the fruit, she was bound forever to Hades and required to return to her husband once per year to eat of the seeds again. This, it is said, is a time of mourning and the cause of winter.

While many fear death and view it as evil, in truth, Hades endeavors only to keep balance. He is stern but fair. As God of the Dead and the Underworld, he views his authority on this matter absolute, forbidding anyone to leave his realm and growing wrathful when disobeyed or when someone tries to cheat death or steal from him.

For everyone, death is unavoidable and service to Hades inevitable. Even the Gods.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • Hades is Persephone's husband.
  • Hades was one of the playable gods in the Alpha build of SMITE's first presentation to the public at PAX Prime 2011.
  • In February of 2016, at the start of Sesaon 3, Hades was reclassified from Guardian to Mage.
  • Something similar happened with Vulcan.

God Skins[edit | edit source]

  • Default Hades
  • Hades' current default skin used to be a 400 gems skin called "Nightmare" (which was originally a skin made as a replacement for Default Hades for the Chinese version of SMITE) that eventually ended up being switched in SMITE Beta Version 0.1.2044.1, with the original look being turned into the "Classic Hades" skin. Anyone who owned Hades before that update received the Classic Hades skin for free, and anyone who had purchased the Nightmare skin received a refund.
  • Bloodfire
  • This skin still uses the old Hades model.
  • Classic Hades
  • This skin used to be Hades default model, before it was switched with Nightmare.
  • This is the first time a god received a classic skin, followed by Retrocles Hercules and Old Wa Nu Wa.
  • Grim Wraith
  • Heebee Chibi
  • Plague Lord
  • Prince of Darkness
  • This skin makes several references to some of Hades' myths in Ancient Greece, such as:
  • In the full version of the skin card art there is an empty throne beside his that is covered in flowers, and Hades is holding a pomegranate, both of these elements are references to his wife Persephone.
  • This could also be an easter egg indicating her realease to the game.
  • Hades' staff closely resembles the one he is depicted with in certain statues.
  • In this skin Hades is completly human just like how he was depicted in Ancient Greece.
  • This is Hades' first skin that portrays him as a human.
  • One of Prince of Darkness Hades' jokes, "So, question. When am I getting my own game? We all know I'm interesting enough to carry without all these other gods", could be a reference to the dungeon crawler game Hades by Supergiant Games.
  • Ragnarok
