Amon is a dark and malevolent xel'naga, bent on shattering The Infinite Cycle by destroying all life and remaking the universe in his own image. He views death as a final release and "highest ideal"; to Amon, death is the only true victory a mortal can obtain. He views himself and his actions as good, not evil, seeing life and the perpetuation of The Infinite Cycle as merely generating unnecessary suffering. This view stems from his deep hatred of the xel'naga, which made him one of them in a way that made him feel cheated and lied to.
Despite being a relatively young xel'naga, Amon was the strongest among them. He was able to fight many xel'naga at once, killing many of them before being thrown back into the void. Being deeply rooted in the void, he has the power to bend the realm to his will, causing all that enter it to be quickly dispatched without his blessing or another similarly powerful being's protection. He can not be killed by conventional means, as even if his true form or host body are destroyed, he will be revived within the void, albeit trapped inside with limited influence on the normal universe until a new host body is formed. If he is killed within the void, he will be put down for good, though doing this is incredibly difficult, as it takes the power of a newly ascended xel'naga to kill him even after he is weakened.
Amon is one of the single most powerful beings in the StarCraft universe, being able to use incredibly potent psionic abilities and bearing incredible survivability. With endless ambition and hatred, Amon longs for the end of The Infinite Cycle and all life along with it.

Weaknesses: While within the Khala, his mind can be read while possessing someone. If destroyed within the void, he can not return and is killed permanently. He is much weaker in his hybrid host body, being able to be sent back to the void with sufficient firepower. While in the void, he has limited power on the normal universe, requiring others to possess and control in order to carry out his will unless fully manifested outside of it. After being killed he is far weaker until he has fully recovered.
