|~ Amon, revealing his host body|
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 cannot 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.

Attack Potency: Multi-Continent level (Even his hybrid host form is regarded as one of the most dangerous enemies in the StarCraft universe, likely vastly outclassing the Primal Queen of Blades), at least Small Planet level with Void Shards | At least Dwarf Star level (An ancient Xel'naga artifact was capable of yielding this much energy, and the Xel'naga themselves should be more powerful than it), likely Solar System level | Universe level (Stated by Ouros to be with the Void], an entirely separate universe; is shown to destroy the universe in an alternate timeline; is stated to be a threat to the universe)
Speed: At least Superhuman (Should be vastly superior to the likes of Artanis) | Massively FTL+ (Able to traverse between planets incredibly quickly, seeding the universe with life) | Massively FTL+ (Capable of destroying the universe in a short amount of time)
Lifting Strength: At least Class 10 (His Hybrid body is at least this large) | Likely Class Y (Amon is stated to be capable of ripping worlds apart) | Unknown (Far stronger than before)
Striking Strength: Multi-Continent Class | At least Dwarf Star Class, possibly Solar System Class | Universal
Durability: Multi-Continent level (Implied that Kerrigan and similarly powerful hero units could not hurt his hybrid form, forcing the protagonists to use orbital bombardment from multiple planet-surface busters), at least Small Planet level with Void Shards (Stated by Karax to be completely immune to the Protoss' most powerful weapons, which include Cybros, numerous Capital Ships, and the Spear of Adun, all of which are able to destroy a planet's crust) | At least Dwarf Star level, likely Solar System level (Alarak said that "It would be easier to destroy every star in the galaxy" than kill Amon) | Universe level (Is one with the Void; can survive the destruction of the universe, which he would cause)
Stamina: Very high (Should be above the likes of Sarah Kerrigan) | Very high (Can travel between planets and only appears tired if killed and forced to regenerate) | Limitless unless recently killed
Range: Several meters by virtue of sheer size, hundreds of kilometers with psionic attacks | At least Planetary, likely Galactic with psionic attacks, Multi-Universal with Telepathy (Is able to influence and telepathically communicate with others despite being contained within the Void) | Universal with psionic attacks, Multi-Universal with Telepathy
Standard Equipment: None notable
Intelligence: Extremely high (Is older than the universe; outsmarted all other Xel'naga and manipulates millions simultaneously), possibly Nigh-Omniscient with Telepathy (Stated to Artanis that nothing escapes his notice and revealed that he knew his secret plans)
Weaknesses: If destroyed within the Void, he cannot return and is killed permanently. 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.
