Below, we have compiled a list of every boss in Hades 2 per region.

All Primary Bosses in Hades 2

All Hades 2 Tartarus Bosses

Headmistress Hecate

  • Where to find: Erebus

Hecate is the witch hat-donning boss players will first encounter while traversing the region of Erebus. The boss has various attacks. A purple ring of fire expands away from her, so be ready to move to the arena’s edges until the attack is done. Another attack Hecate has is a fire wave attack that slashes out towards you. Additionally, Hecate uses clones to throw players off, so keep an eye out for the true one when she replicates this move.

Scylla and the Sirens

  • Where to find: Oceanus

Scylla and the Sirens is another fight that will test your skills, especially your awareness and reflexes. The boss fight consists of three enemies that must be defeated to win. When fighting Scylla herself, be prepared for various ranged attacks. She will try to close the gap by charging at you and trying to damage you with spikes in front of her. Additionally, she will charge at you with her microphone to hit you and has an orb that will follow you around the arena. So, keep away from her and damage during her attack cooldowns. When it comes to the sirens, Roxy has a wave of AOE attacks that need to be avoided; when she uses these, get close to her and, on the second one, move away. Lastly, Jetty has ranged attacks similar to Scylla, plus a charge attack that deals AOE damage where it lands. So, always be on the move and focus on one enemy at a time before moving on to the next.

Infernal Cerberus

  • Where to find: Fields of Mourning

Infernal Cerberus is the legendary three-headed dog, only this time even more lethal. Cerberus is relatively easy to read during its first phase. It indicates where it will be attacking and launches fire bombs at you, which you’ll need to dodge. When the second phase begins, Cerberus will start chasing you around the arena. If it hits you, it’ll deal a lot of damage. The best course of action is to maneuver behind it and damage it while it doesn’t have sightlines on you.

Chronos, Titan of Time

  • Where to find: Tartarus

Chronos is the big bad boss, and players will fight him in the depths of Tartarus. As a major final enemy, players must have their skills sharpened to take down this foe. Chronos is incredibly fast, so always be on your toes. To start with, you’ll need to chip away at his health, moving in quickly to deal a couple of blows before backing away. Furthermore, the boss fight against Chronos has multiple phases. So, try to preserve your health so that you can take damage during the later, more demanding phases.

The Cyclops Polyphemus

  • Where to find: City of Ephyra

The Polyphemus fight is pretty challenging, as the majority of its attacks will send out a shockwave that’ll damage you. So, as you won’t just be able to dodge the first blow, you’ll need to steer clear of its attacks as soon as they start. Fortunately, Polyphemus is very slow, so a couple of quick attacks and ranged damage are your best options during the fight. As with other bosses, choosing to flank Polyphemus is a great strategy; that way, you avoid his deadly attacks while still dealing damage. The Cyclops will spawn mobs that must be dispatched quickly to make the fight easier.

Charybdis, the Devouring

Where to find: Rift of Thessaly

Charybdis, the Devouring, is a secret boss that players will encounter while jumping between Chronos’ ships. This is around the mid-point of your journey through Olympus. You’ll need to attack its tentacles when they strike you, as its body will be out of reach of all of your attacks. Once you’ve whittled them down, Charybdis will be defeated, and you can move on.

Eris, Strife Incarnate

  • Where to find: Rift of Thessaly

Eris is a daughter of Nyx and players encounter her after the voyage over the Rift of Thessaly. The boss uses an automatic rifle against you, so she has range. Furthermore, her attacks range from single shots to full automatic projectiles raining across the map and an explosive AOE attack. Players should try and dodge to get behind Eris and attack her this way. Usually, doing a few hits and retreating is the best course to ensure you are playing it safely.
