The successor of I. His colour theme is green and he's the only Papa to wield a ferula (a staff with a Grucifix on top). He reigned from 2013 to 2015. Technically he made his debut in 2012, but most fans mark his era as beginning in 2013 for simplicity's sake. He is the first Papa to also go out without donning the facepaint, doing an interview unmasked and sporting dark sunglasses; he also appears without the facepaint in the video for "Year Zero" although those scenes are filmed in black and white.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In his first few appearances, he had a [[https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oldpapaiii.jpg different facepaint]] that was quite similar to his brother's before he switched to the more streamlined paint he used for the rest of the tour. This design is reflected in the effigy of Papa III on the cover art of ''Meliora''.

It was also used for the kid Papa in the music video of ''Cirice'' (though some argued the child was Papa II because the facepaint is that similar).


* YourCheatingHeart: While it's clear he loves Imperator dearly, it still doesn't stop him from kissing two women ''[[WhatAnIdiot right in front of her]]'' during a concert, leading to their separation that lasted until the current day.

* {{Adorkable}}: In the "Chapter" videos, Papa Nihil is shown to be a very excitable, lovestruck old man who has a penchant for the saxophone and loves records and ''Film/TheOmen'' movies.

* HumiliationConga: He is the only Papa who has the distinction of being forcibly dragged off stage as his final public performance. Soon after that he was poisoned, [[AndIMustScream embalmed alive]] and had [[DecapitationPresentation his head chopped off and used for a photo-shoot by Copia.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SirSwearsALot: Self-lampshaded, especially if kids were in the audience. He would apologize for cursing, admit that he had a foul mouth, and then go right back to it.


Also known as Papa Emeritus Zero, he first appeared at Papa IIIís last performance, making an eerie proclamation that "the Dark Age has begun". He's later revealed to have been Ghostís original singer in the late '60s. He also appears onstage with Cardinal Copia, performing the saxophone solo for the song "Miasma".

* DeathGlare: Has a very impressive one as his default expression. Not for nothing was he considered the most terrifying and intimidating of all the Papas.

* AmbiguouslyBi: All of them have this to a certain degree, especially the Era III and IV Ghouls, as they play along with Papa III and Copia's touchy-feeliness and sometimes do the same with each other.
