Killer Instinct - Gargos



Gargos is one if the Main antagonists of "Killer Instinct", ever since his debut in the second game. He is a Demonic Warlord, that was exiled 2,000 years ago after a failed invasion of Earth. Though he didn't make a physical appearance in the first game, he pretended to be a "Great Tiger Spirit" to which the Tibetan-Warrior Monks worshiped. He is strongly tied with Jago as he manipulates him into joining the Killer Instinct tournament to slay anyone who would get in the way of his plans; including Eyedol, his eternal rival. In the events of the second game, Gargos reveals his true intentions to Jago and starts his campaign of world conquest by going 2,000 years back before his previous exile.

In the reboot, Gargos's story is slightly altered. He still corrupts Jago and he is still exiled into a different dimension, but more details were added in as well (Such as stealing Tusk's memories and manipulating Kan-Ra into releasing). He's also physically different (He was just a simple Gargoyle before, but now he's a giant Baphomet Demon Lord). No matter what the timeline though, Gargos will be unleashed upon the world and begin his invasion.

    • Time for my counter argument! Though that sounds interesting, should we factor in Gargos's special manipulation?
    • Onaga has been upgraded this is now a stomp.
