Argosax the Chaos was a powerful Demon God who once waged a great war in ancient times against Mundus and conquered half of the Underworld, splitting the devil kingdom in two sides. After the defeat of Mundus at Sparda's hands and the sealing of the netherworld, Argosax conquered the other half of the Underworld and installed himself as the sole ruler of the Demon World for over a millenium, before he was summoned into the human realm and defeated and sealed by the combined forces of the hero Sparda and the powerful sorcerers of the Vie de Marli clan. His true, unsealed form appears as a genderless, godlike silhouette of fire. He serves as the boss of Mission 18, the final mission of Dante's scenario in Devil May Cry 2.
