Typhon is a monstrous being who is the son of Gaia and Tartarus. He is bred to be a fighting machine, as his mother solely put him on the earth (pun intended) to overthrow Zeus.

As for appearances, Typhon is somewhat of a monster. He has one hundred dragon heads that breath fire from their lungs and have eyes that spout fire as well. He has numerous wings and countless muscled arms. His touch is poisonous, as well as his spit. His roar is deadly as well. As if that is not enough, there are multiple giant snakes coiling from the lower part of his body as well, all deadly of course.

Given Typhon’s name, it should not be a surprise that he is the monster that is responsible for storms. He is also the father of the most vicious monsters in Greek mythology. He fathered those on Echnida, who is a bit of a legendary monster herself.

When Typhon tried to fulfill his destiny by killing the Olympians, he is defeated by Zeus. Some sources say that it was an easy battle, others say it was a complicated one. In the end, the outcome is the same: Zeus wins by throwing the Etna on top of him.
