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 and terrorizing the other factions with Trihexa and Aži Dahāka, destroying a lot of lives and properties in the process. Similarly to Rizevim and Aži Dahāka, he was interested in the other universe ExE.

- Sephiroth Graal: Also known as the Holy Grail, it is one of the eighteen Longinus that hold enough power to kill Gods. It allows the wielder to interact with the principle of life and force them to understand the process of how the life and soul are created, allowing them to communicate with the spirits of the dead of a world separate from theirs, and to resurrect the dead as many times as needed as long as their soul is intact. 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
- Eclipse Manipulation: Apophis is capable of creating a large ball in the sky and completely blocking out the sun causing everything below to become a world 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, effortlessly dissolving Issei's armor and wings on contact. In addition, with the help of this darkness, he can very quickly put an extremely powerful barrier on a large territory the size of an island. Moreover this barrier does not disappear even after his death. He can also create a Solar Eclipse with help of the barrier, thereby significantly increasing the power of his darkness.
- Primordial Water: Apophis' special ability. He is able to create and control large volumes of black water. This water has strong acid properties, and can dissolve anything on contact. 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.
