The Seven Deadly SinsThe physical representations of pride, wrath, sloth, envy, lust, gluttony and avarice. Long ago, the Charred Council ordered the Four Horsemen to seal them away as their existence imperiled the Balance. After the premature apocalypse, the Sins were set free and fled to Earth to start gaining power over Creation. With War imprisoned and Death and Strife missing, Fury has been sent to destroy them alone.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: As their names indicate.
- A Form You Are Comfortable With: The Sins don't have a true physical form, but Fury must destroy them in order to trap their essence in her talisman.
- Big-Bad Ensemble: Collectively, the main antagonists of Darksiders III. However, Envy schemes to become the sole Big Bad.
- Compelling Voice: Lust, Sloth and Wrath are seen to have this, which is how they are able to corrupt others.
- Red Baron: Each of the Sins has an epitaph to their Boss Subtitles; only Gluttony and Pride are exempt in-game.
Envy, Resentment Made Flesh/The Covetous Queen
Voiced by: Misty Lee
Envy is the very first Deadly Sin fought by Fury.
- All Your Powers Combined: During the final battle, Envy wields weapons evocative of the Horsemen's own arsenal sans Fury; a Chaoseater-like greatsword, a scythe similar to Harvester, and two hand cannons just as large as Mercy and Redemption. In addition, she can summon facsimiles of the fallen Sins to aid her in combat.
- Ambition Is Evil: Envy wanted Fury to kill the other sins so she'd have no superiors or equals. She also planned to assassinate the Charred Council, then simply wait until the angels and demons left on Earth wiped each other out to claim the planet for herself.Envy: When I'm done here and [the Charred Council] are nothing left but pebbles, I will simply wait out the Apocalypse and destroy whatever weakened generals remain! The Earth will be mine!
- Big "NO!": Has one when Fury takes her talisman.Envy: No! That's MINE!
- Cool Mask: The true Envy wears a bone mask very similar to Death's.
- Feathered Fiend: Envy resembles a humanoid corvid/vulture, which is appropriate for a hateful creature like her. Well, the fake Envy does, at least.
- Foreshadowing: When Envy is sucked into the amulet, it appears in white. Rather than green like the other sins. Indicating that Envy is not a true sin.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Unsurprisingly. She specifically resents mankind and fully intends on taking everything that they have. When Pride falls, she also admits she was always envious of her sister and likely the other Sins as well, which is the point she finally reveals herself.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: In their final battle, Fury gets close to Envy, presses her whip against Envy's chest and activates the weapon, impaling Envy through the heart on the way in, then uncoiling and ripping it apart on the way out.
- Little "No": She says this when Fury says she is here to kill her.
- Magic Staff: Wields one to focus her magic as well as to fight physically.
- Mood-Swinger: When she reveals herself, the true Envy shifts between calm and calculating to screeching in desire in the same sentence.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: The true Envy has numerous arms in which she carries various weapons, from a sword to a scythe to Guns Akimbo.
- Not So Different: Claims this is the case between her and the Charred Council since they also envied others and craved power. That is why she figured out what they were up to before anyone else.Charred Council: Your lust for power will be your undoing, Envy!Envy: Well isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?!
- Puny Earthlings:''Humans think creation favors them - they are apes crawling through the dirt!
- Sickly Green Glow: Her talisman has this noticeable color and Envy's own Battle Aura and Sin summons are all of a green glow.
- Starter Villain: For Darksiders III. Subverted when she returns later on to become the Final Boss.
- Unskilled, but Strong: After absorbing the powers of other Sins, she ends up becoming this as she lacks discipline and experience required to handle such powers, which leads to her final defeat at Fury's hands. In fact, Lust outright insults Envy by saying she is a sniveling coward who never experienced frontline combat.
- Villainous Breakdown: She absolutely loses it when Fury takes back the talisman.
Envy: No! It was mine! I deserved it! I had it! MINE!
- During their final battle, Envy snaps when Fury is on the verge of beating her, raging that she's not about to lose all the power she's claimed.
- Walking Spoiler: All these spoiler marks should indicate that there is a lot more to Envy than simply being a Starter Villain.
- The Worf Effect: Envy is the weakest of the sins and the first defeated by Fury despite being the second deadliest sin. Although it turns out Envy planned and faked her death from the start, becoming the Final Boss and most dangerous Sin in combat.
Wrath, the Molten Lord
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore
- Abhorrent Admirer: In their rematch, Wrath admits to Fury that he finds her beautiful, especially when she's angry. He then adds that in another reality he could have loved her. Fury's only response is an annoyed look before wiping the floor with him.
- Blood Knight: Fury encounters him battling a whole battalion of Angels. He seems to be enjoying himself immensely.
- Dual Wielding: Wields two swords in battle.
- Emotion Eater: Claims to be fueled by Unstoppable Rage, and that the harder his combatant fights, the stronger he gets. Its hard to tell if this is actually true, however.
- Hero Killer: Comes dangerously close to killing Fury in their battle.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Fury finishes him by ramming a broken Angel blade through his face, one that he had impaled her on in the first place.
- In their final battle, Wrath throws his sword at Fury. She catches the blade, spins it around and returns it to Wrath...through his chest.
- Magma Man: What little of him that can be seen under his armor looks like molten rock.
- This Cannot Be!: During their final fight, Wrath expresses disbelief that Fury can fight him without succumbing to rage.Wrath: WHERE IS YOUR ANGER?! HOW CAN YOU FIGHT WITHOUT ANGER?!
- Tin Tyrant: Decked from head to toe in black-grey armor.
Avarice, the Collector
Voiced by: JB Blanc
- Combat Pragmatist: He's not so blinded by his treasures he won't hesitate to use them to kill Fury, even if it means breaking them.
- Creepy Souvenir: You can see various body parts in his bag, such as angel wings, arms and corpses. At least one of huge items he can try to flatten Fury with is a giant demon's skull.
- Lots of Luggage: Carries a ridiculously huge bag on his back full of stuff. For context, it's several times bigger than he is.
- Down in the Dumps: His "collection" includes stuff that has already been trashed by the apocalypse, and the arena is full of junk. Seriously, he introduces himself by throwing a bathtub at Fury and the during the fight can try to crush her with another bathtub or a refrigerator.
- Improbable Weapon User: Avarice will attack Fury with junk, including bathtubs and will actually wield a fridge to smack the Nephilim.
- Trophy Room: The bossfight takes place in his collection room. Not all the items he collects can be considered treasures, considering the bathtubs.
Sloth, Lord of the Flies
Voiced by: Darin De Paul
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Fury calls him out on this, to which he responds that 'dignity is a myth'.
- Berserk Button: He doesn't start really fighting until you destroy his throne, at which point he'll fly into a rage and start going all out.Sloth: You owe me a new throne, but I'll settle for your head!
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: He is an enormous talking bed-bug.
- Carry a Big Stick: Totes around a long scepter that he also uses for taking swings at Fury.
- Compelling Voice: Uses this to get Fury to leave without fighting. It almost works, except Fury´s watcher intervenes and motivates her to fight again.
- Evil Gloating: After Fury beats him, he lies there on the ground exhausted and starts gloating about how much he doesn't care about Balance, Angels, or the Horsemens duty. They end up being his final words.
- Fat Bastard: The fattest one on the series, to the point he could be confused with Gluttony. Servants have to drag his ass during most of the fight.
- Flunky Boss: Summons his insect servants to fight.
- Shockwave Stomp: Can unleash these when he comes down from a jump.
- Terms of Endangerment: Calls Fury "darling".
Lust, Ruler of Twisted Desire
Voiced by: Jason Spisak
- Ambiguous Gender: Fury refers to Lust as "they", despite having a feminine voice and face, although provided by a male voice actor. It doesn't help that Lust also has a more masculine body.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After being beaten, Lust offers to expose the location of Envy to Fury in exchange for their life. Fury throws it back in their face.
- Black Knight: Surprisingly for someone who represents the sin of Lust, they're actually pretty conservatively-dressed in black armor. Admittedly, they do seem to be more about lust for power and domination, rather than the more sexualized connotations of the sin.
- Bling of War: They wear an extremely ornate and extravagant suit of black plate and scale armour, trimmed with gold.
- Blood Knight: Lampshaded during a conversation between Fury and The Watcher. This depiction of lust isn't the usual seductress commonly depicted. Lust is primarily themed around a lust for everything, though with an emphasis on violence and ambition. For this, they are regarded as one of the most dangerous of the sins.
- Cool Sword: Lust wields one, a black-coloured sabre with gold runes etched into the blade.
- The Corrupter: Uses More Than Mind Control and Master of Illusion powers to turn people to their side, including Usiel.
- Dual Boss: Halfway through the fight, they manages to convince Usiel to side with them, forcing Fury to fight the both of them at the same time.
- Master of Illusion: Not only can they do this to create decoys of themselves in battle, they can summon vivid fantasies of what others most desire. Fury very nearly succumbs to this before Spotting the Thread.
- Oh, Crap!: When they realize their temptations hold no sway over Fury, seconds before the latter kills them.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Fury in their pre-battle confrontation, inferring that Fury doesn't give a damn about the Balance, and only serves the Charred Council for the sake of attaining power and to avoid being exterminated like the rest of the Nephilhim.Lust: I know my role in the universe. I wonder if you've ever stopped to question yours? You are a Horseman, but why? Did you make that choice? And if so, was there some reasoning behind it?... You don't even know why you fight, do you? Hmmm, do you fight for your brothers? Oh, of course not! Your antagonism towards them is well known! Do you seek to achieve some sort of Balance? Oh, you never believed in the greater good until it suited you. No, no, no, what I see in your actions is a lust all your own- a lust for power and privilege and protection from the Nephilhim's inevitable fall! Ultimately, that makes us allies, doesn't it?
- Slashed Throat: Fury opens their neck with the edge of a Crossblade.
- Smug Snake: They're so confident in their ability to manipulate people that they give the impression they're going to get away scott-free. They don't.
Gluttony, All-consuming Emptiness
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore
- Alluring Anglerfish: His primary form.
- Combat Tentacles: After transforming, he gains two of these.
- Eldritch Abomination: He's the most inhuman of all the Sins, looking like something that crawled out of the works of H. P. Lovecraft.
- Extreme Omnivore: He's been eating anything he can get his hands on.
- Eye Scream: Fury kills him in his second form by driving one of his tusks into his eye.
- Fangs Are Evil: Just look at those mouths of his.
- Feed It a Bomb: In his second form, Fury must lure in the nearby floating mines so Gluttony will suck them in instead.
- Kick the Dog: He found the corpse of Rampage and was eating him before Fury found him. Fury was pissed to find this out.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Seriously, he has a LOT of mouths.
- One-Winged Angel: After losing half of his health, Gluttony will break the floor and retreat into a underwater cavern, turning into a kraken-like monster with a face that does away with the smaller mouths and sprouts two additional tentacles.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Some of his lines sound like he's a whiny toddler. Couple that with Extreme Omnivore and you get this trope.
- Rubber Man: He can stretch his arms to immense length.
- Super Spit: Spits out globs of nasty blue gunk at Fury during the first half of their battle.
- Tentacled Terror: This ungodly monstrosity is some cross between and anglerfish and an octopus.
- To Serve Man: Unsurprisingly, he's been eating humans. As shown by the grapefruit illusion.
- Vacuum Mouth: Used by both of his forms so that he can gulp down Fury and chew her up for a bit. It ends up being his undoing for his second form.
Pride, Keeper of the Vigil
Voiced by: Abby Craden
- Bling of War: She's decked out in purple and light-blue armor with golden highlights.
- Disc-One Final Boss: She's set up as the last and leader of the Seven Deadly Sins Fury must defeat, only for Envy to reveal herself shortly after the battle, absorb Pride into her talisman after stealing it back from Fury, and taking the role of Final Boss for herself.
- Cool Sword: She wields a large golden sword in combat.
- Facial Horror: Under her mask, she has some slight scarring around her right eye, but more importantly the eye is completely missing the eyelid and gaping wide open.
- Light Is Not Good: She's decked out in armor with noticeable golden highlights, resembles an Angel, and first appears in a flash of light. She's still evil.
- Pride: Her pride is the type that leaves her feeling so above others that their insults are meaningless to her.
- We Can Rule Together: Offers an alliance to Fury against the Charred Council to restore Balance to the universe. Fury refuses.Pride: Before you make a tragic mistake, I'd like to make you an offer. You've seen the world. You've seen the state it's in. You're smart enough to know someone, somewhere has lied to you. There is no plan. There is no Balance. It's all lies, but...imagine if it were true. Imagine if you, and I, truly set out to give the world direction. Order. Isn't that your true purpose? We could be the force for balance the world deserves. We could be...GREATNESS!Fury: At one time, that speech might have worked on me...but that was when I did not understand how ugly Pride could be. Thank you for your generous offer, but if this world is to be fixed, neither of us will be the ones to do it.
