Apophis was a Evil Dragon and one of the strongest alongside Crom Cruach and Aži Dahāka. He was revived by Rizevim with the aid of the Holy Grail and subsequently became a member of Qlippoth, before betraying the organization with Aži Dahāka. Similarly to Rizevim and Aži Dahāka, he was interested in the other world Evie Etoulde.

- Optional Equipment:
- Holy Grail of the Secluded World: Also known as the Holy Grail, it is one of the eighteen Longinus that hold enough power to kill Gods.

It can also be used to strengthen targets and eliminate their weaknesses, and allows the user to regenerate as long as a portion of their soul remains.
Weaknesses: He is susceptible to dragon slaying abilities and weaponry, and cannot utilize his full strength unless he's under the shade of darkness
- Darkness and Shadow Manipulation: Apophis can generate darkness from any part of his body or the surroundings and use it for both offensive and defensive purposes. He can utilize it to absorb or nullify any projectile based or physical attacks, and it can also cancel the effects of items. It has the added property of dissolving everything it touches.
- Primordial Water: Apophis' special ability. He is able to create and control large volumes of black water. He can make it swallow and submerge his surroundings, and use it in the form of massive waves or whips. It can also home in on targets.
