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.

* 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 outout and they were just as immortal as he is after all, meaning they couldn't die.
* JumpedToTheCall: Some sources state that he was very eager to use the chance when Gaea asked who would take revenge on Ouranos.



* MisterSeahorse: Somehow his children emerged fully grown once Zeus opened his belly many years after they had been swallowed. Most likely because Cronus is extremely huge and his belly is habitable. Or because Greek myth is weird like that.

* SatanIsGood: Obviously pre-dates the idea of Satan's fall, but the positive interpretation of Satan comes from him - a rebel against a Selfish God/gods who brings knowledge to humanity. [[MessianicArcheytpe Ironically, his motives and the fate he suffers for it draw plenty of parallels to Christ as well.]]
