* FateWorseThanDeath: Just as his father, he was cut into tiny pieces. With his own scythe. After which his remains were unceremoniously tossed into Tartarus along with much of the rest of the titans. And as Titans are technically immortals...

* ImAHumanitarian: Eat his newborn children one by one in order to preserve his rule, but unlike most examples, it's less permanent as Zeus manages to have them vomit them all out and they were just as immortal as he is after all, meaning they couldn't die.

It helps that he also swallowed them whole- immortal or not, if he had chewed them up, the Olympians would have remained seriously mangled for eternity.

* SuperheroSpeciation: Averted, He's the Lord of light, which makes him not very unique in that respect, since there's several other deities in Greek Mythology aligned with light.

A daughter of Oceanus and Tethys, making her a Oceanid. Was actually Zeus's first spouse, and was a goddess of Wisdom and deep thought, though her name actually implies a combination of wisdom and cunning. It was Metis who gave Zeus the poison that forced Cronos to vomit out his children. However, Zeus feared Metis, because she was was prophesied to have extremely powerful children, the second of which would be more powerful than Zeus himself. Zeus promptly tricked Metis into turning herself into a fly, after which he promptly swallowed her. Metis, however, was already pregnant with a powerful child (Athena), and went to work building armor for her inside Zeus, causing him great pain. Eventually, one way or another, Zeus got his head cracked open, and out popped Athena. What became of Metis after that is unknown.

* IGaveMyWord: When his son Phaethon asks for evidence of his paternity, Helios swears on the River Styx to do anything he can to prove it. When Phathon demands to drive the chariot of the sun Helios desperately tries to talk him out of it, telling him at length about how difficult and dangerous the task is, to the point that Zeus himself wouldn't be able to do it - it would be impossible for anyone other than Helios himself. But Phaethon insists, and Helios can't go back on his word, so he ''very'' reluctantly lets him do it. With predictable, borderline apocalyptic results.
