Cain the Fatality
Crying Eyes Hilder
- Bare Your Midriff
- The Chessmaster: While she isn't the strongest Apostle combat-wise, her ability to sway and manipulate others is what caused many of the disasters in the game, even manipulating the player character directly at parts (moreso for certain classes). This alone lands her the position of Apostle #2.
- God's Hands Are Tied: The player character pretty much asks Hilder upfront why she and Cain don't just kill the more destructive Apostles themselves. Apparently they tried, but their own powers as Apostles prevent them from killing one another, forcing Hilder to go to extremes.
- The Heavy: She's had a hand in many of the disasters that occurred throughout the game.
- Stripperific: Is fully clothed except for her torso area....
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to revive Pandemonium, but doing so comes at the cost of Arad.
- You Can't Thwart Stage One: Her mysterious plan to revitalize Pandemonium at the cost of Arad requires the deaths of the other Apostles. Several of them die during the story, usually after causing enough chaos on their own to provoke the player character and their allies.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A
Isys-Prey in the Blue Sky
- Amazing Technicolor Battlefield: His arena consists of a lush, colorful plain in the light world and barren purple ruins in the dark world.
- Bullet Hell: One of Isis's berserk attacks involves a huge tornado shooting out smaller tornadoes in patterns reminiscent of the Shmup genre.
- Dimension Traveler: His gimmick is that he's fought in two "world lines" simultaneously, with the attacking party usually split with two in the light world and two in the dark world, and all of his berserk patterns require coordination between players of both world lines. The players Isis can harm is determined by the colors of his attacks.
- Fade to White: The end of Isys's DPS window in his raid involves him getting up and launching an energy attack that does this, additionally forcing the party out of his dungeon and locking them out with an "Encroached" debuff for a few minutes.
- Grand Theft Me: Prey is able to talk to mortals by temporarily possessing his closest followers.
- Literal Split Personality: Isys and Prey were originally one and the same. Their story involves the two of them duking it out to see who remains in control after fusing back together.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: Unlike Luke before him, whose melee attacks consisted of wildly flailing his four arms, Isis has a few melee attacks resembling martial arts, like a knee kick (think the male Gunner's Jack Spike), a one-inch punch, and an axe kick, all used in tandem with a wide variety of magical attacks. Prey is no slouch, either - upon beating the Isis raid, players are treated to an animated cutscene of Prey divekicking Isis out of nowhere and beating the crap out of his Evil Counterpart while laying on the ground, absorbing him.
- Mind Manipulation: Isis's army consists of mind-controlled creatures from his home planet of Tayberrs. This is shown in the Prey scenario questline, where various bosses that show up in the raid succumb to Isis's influence one by one.
- Pinned to the Wall: The only time players get a lengthy damage window is when another party clears the Observatory dungeon (or automatically after a gimmick clear in Prey Solo), which ends with a ballista firing a huge, light-infused bolt at Isis, pinning him to the ground for 20 seconds.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: The Harlem scenario quest line kicks off with Isis-Prey, in egg form, falling into the Harlem area and setting much of the slums on fire. "Episode 1: Ricardo" shows that Ricardo the Heartbreaker managed to get it to hatch after the events of Harlem, paving the way for the Isis-Prey Raid.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Isis is renamed Isys in DFO Global (albeit still inconsistently referred to as Isis at times), presumably to avoid associating with the real life terrorist group of the same name. The official DFO Twitch livestream even goes as far as routinely pronouncing his name as E-sys. One of the stream's regulars, Gerri, often chimes in saying something along the lines of "I don't think anybody actually cares".
- Split Personality: Prey is the good one, Isis is the evil one.
- Winged Humanoid: Isis is a Birdman with 3 pairs of wings.
Kasijas the Conqueror
- Assist Character: The Summoner class's awakening brings him to the battle field.
- Challenge Seeker: He agrees to be available to be summoned for the opportunity of finding worthy battles.
- Nearly at the end of the Pandemonium Epic Quests, you get to fight him, as his request.
- Summon Bigger Fish: He becomes one of the Summoner's summons after her awakening.
- Self-Duplication: However, he only sends fragments of himself to Summoners he makes contracts with, which explains why his power varies depending on the Summoner involved. In the Pandemonium Epic Quest where you fight him, if you're a Summoner, he will not object at all if you use his power against him.
- Master Swordsman: He is noted to be an expert with his swords.
Sirocco of Intangible
However, she was transferred to Arad, arriving in the Screaming Cavern. There, she went insane, nearly wiping out the Nugols living there, and creating an unstable environment. Eventually, the Empire sent its best soldiers, including the four Legendary Weapon Masters, to investigate the cavern. Unfortunately, most of the investigating party succumbed to Siroko's overwhelming power, and Roxy, a Dark Elf Beserker, unleashed the full power of Kazan's Blood Curse to put an end to Siroko once and for all. However, this act ended up costing Roxy her life in the process...
- Back for the Dead: The level 100 cap will have a raid revolving around her. Considering the fates of prior Apostles slain by the Dungeon Fighters, she's effectively getting retconned back into existence to die horribly.
- The Corrupter: As she died she corrupted various children throughout Arad, cursing them with mysterious power. Those who were corrupted eventually came to be known as "Demonic Lancers"
- Posthumous Character: Killed by the four Legendary Weapon Masters before the events of the game. The prologue comic before the Metastasis update even showed her defeat.
- Reality Warper
- Spell My Name with an "S": Known as "Siroko" when the game was under Nexon America
- Stripperific: Her attire can only be described as ornaments with ribbons attached to them.
- When It All Began: Was responsible for the Great Devolution on Arad
Delezie, Plagued Apostle
A portion of Delezie's power also appeared in Noire Ferra, ruining the Dark Elf city and transforming much of Aphelia into monsters cursed by Delezie's Plague. There, a phantasm of Delezie materialized, causing much torment and destruction before eventually being defeated by adventurers.
Delezie met its end in Reshpon, Village of Pain, after being defeated by heroes wielding the divine protection of Hilder. After being defeated, Delezie was cast into an Interdimensional Rift and thrown into a space vacuum, utterly annihilating him.
- Barrier Change Boss: His main gimmick in his boss fight is to absorb the first element you hit him with, both reflecting it and healing from it for a little while, before dropping it and waiting for another element. Oh, and don't try to be smart and make him absorb non-elemental attacks, because he'll massively buff himself in response.
- Eldritch Abomination: Though his preferred form is more of an Animalistic Abomination, he can shed it at will and become a literal tornado of pure disease.
- No Biological Sex: Is referred to with female pronouns under Nexon America and male pronouns under Neople for the English version. In other versions Delezie is simply gender neutral
- Fighting a Shadow: The boss of City of Noire Ferra is a weak phantom copy of the original Delezie. The real thing in Reshpon is much, much worse.
- Plaguemaster: Essentially a Ur Example in-universe, being the progenitor of every disease and sickness imaginable in Pandemonium. It doesn't help that he enjoys what he does.
- Purple Is Powerful: Being a resident Person of Mass Destruction, this is a given.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Having first fought Phantasmal Delezie, whose eyes are blue, the real Delezie's piercing red eyes are a clear indicator that it's done playing nice.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Because of his nature, he's effectively immortal. Therefore, after the Dungeon Fighter deals with him, Hilder opens an Interdimensional Rift to banish him into.
- Walking Wasteland: His presence in Arad causes whole cities to succumb to deadly plagues, turning many of its denizens into crude shambles of flesh.
Flame Eater Anton
Anton was later transferred to the land of Empyrean, and went to the Power Station to continue his feast on energy. Because of Anton, the Kartels were able to obtain a major advantage over the forces in Ghent due to the loss in power.
- Colossus Climb: He's quite obviously too gigantic to be fought directly, and is instead combated through several dungeons that take place on his body.
- Diabolus ex Machina: Essentially this to the Empyreans. Because of his arrival and consuming the power at the power plant, the Kartels were able to launch their attack on Ghent.
- Kaiju: He is an enormous monster who is feeding off the power plants of Empyrean.
- The Runt at the End: As revealed in one of the storybooks, he was actually the smallest and youngest of his species at the time of the destruction of his homeworld, making him the only one who could escape it.
Lotus met his end after heroes overcame his many forces and mind control abilites. However, with his parting words, he mentioned that his death was already foretold by Siroko...
- Combat Tentacles: Utilizes his tentacles to strike and slam.
- Gameplay and Story Integration: When you first fight Lotus on Behemoth, he's weakened and is stopped before he can submerge himself in water to regain his strength. About thirty levels later, you fight an alternate version of him who managed to get to water and it's a much harder fight.
- Mind Rape: Does this to a lot of people it brainwashes.
- Plot Coupon That Does Something: The Hyper Jammer. In-story, you make the thing to prevent your character from being mind controlled. It's possible to fight Lotus without the Hyper Jammer (and you have to do so at least once), but wearing it cuts down on the InvincibleMinorMinions generated during the fight.
- Weaksauce Weakness: It's possible, if timed very well, to avoid his mind control attack by jumping. The "Leap" buff helps.
Luke the Constructor
Ever since his birth, Luke's blood drove him into a life of endless building. The Second Apostle, Hilder, saw his abilities and asked him to rebuild Pandemonium. The progress is slow because he is doing this job alone. He is currently rebuilding Metro Center. Pandemonium can receive a constant supply of energy, all thanks to him. Due to being pressured by Bakal 1000 years ago, he built the City of Death, which connects the land of Pandemonium and the land of Empyrean.
While much about Luke still remains unknown, it was he who showed Bakal many events of the future, including the death of the Apostles, and what that entailed.
- Growing Muscles Sequence: Goes from a scrawny, bearded old man with extra arms to a hulking grey monstrosity by the time he's able to be fought in his own version of a raid dungeon.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: He's seen his own death and the deaths of all the other Apostles and depicted them using his lights. His visions of his own death motivated him to fill the Castle of Death with guardians of his own likeness to stop the Dungeon Fighters from making it to Pandemonium as well as an attempt to fool Death into taking one of them instead of him.
- Gadgeteer Genius
- Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: He is responsible for the Black Nightmare phenomenon that begins the player character's journey. This eventually causes Luke to get the attention of the player character and many other citizens of Arad and Empyrean.
- Prophecy Twist: Makes an attempt by constructing mechanical effigies of himself in the hopes that Death will take them instead.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: His castle is ran by machines that wield either darkness or light. An NPC compares it to how Luke is seen as a savior of Pandemonium, but his machinations have brought catastrophe to Arad.Hilder: "While he lives, light cannot be our redemption and darkness cannot be our rest."
- You Can't Fight Fate: For all of Luke's and the player's efforts to spare his life, he dies when he is backstabbed by Vaughn Walshuted, who was empowered by Hilder.
Dragon King Bakal
Due to his wish to conquer the whole land of Pandemonium, Bakal was no longer considered an Apostle. Because of this, Bakal declared the Dragon War with his Dragonoid army to gain the Water of Life, which would make him immortal. However, he was fought off by the combined efforts of Hilder, Kasijas, and Luke. He then escaped to the land of Empyrean using the City of Death that he had Luke made, and sealed away all means of getting to the Land of Empyrean from the land of Arad, causing the Sky Tower to disappear from Arad. He then conquered the land of Empyrean and forbade the use of magic as it was a threat to him. He built a castle for himself and made an army out of the Soldiers of Light. Since magic was forbidden in the land of Empyrean, the people developed high quality technology, especially machines. The Mechanics of Empyrean eventually defeated Bakal and his Army of Light, ending his reign of terror. Bakal's scream before his death split Empyrean into several pieces. Many parts fell on the land of Arad around where North Myre is. Bakal's castle floated away from Empyrean and can sometimes be seen on a sunny day, and it is now known as the Floating Castle.
However, it turns out that Bakal was merely acting on behalf of the beings on Arad. After being shown visions of the future in which many of the other Apostles and himself were to be slain along with the world of Arad to be sacrificed in order to revive Pandemonium, Bakal took it upon himself to take over Empyrean and make its inhabitants strong enough to prevent their eventual destruction. However, Bakal didn't count on Hilder sending heroes from 500 years in the future to come back in time and defeat him...
Bakal also had four sons: Ash Core, Numak, Itrenok and Neiser and created the the three legendary dragons, Skasa the Ice Dragon, Death Dragon Spirazzi, and Hismark.
- Ban on Magic: Banned magic so that nobody could oppose him with it. So the Empyreans instead developed technology. In actuality, it's so that the Empyreans could grow stronger without relying on magic, so that they could stand a chance against Hilder.
- I Need You Stronger: He knows that Hilder is guiding the Dungeon Fighters and plans to make short work of them and Arad after they've defeated the other Apostles. So he planned to make them stronger than Hilder intended so that they could stand a chance against her.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He learned that Hilder will find Unwitting Pawns (the Dungeon Fighters) to kill him and the other Apostles and then destroy Arad and Empyrean in order to restore Pandemonium. So, he plans on making the Dungeon Fighters stronger than Hilder intended so that they can take her down too. Thus why he oppressed the Empyreans and banned magic, forcing them to grow stronger and develop technology in place of magic.
Michael of the Holy Eye
Michael currently holds guard over Ozma in Dark Side, unable to truly kill him. However, he stands ever present of the plans already set in motion, aware that Ozma's death could spell destruction for the rest of the world...
- Archangel Michael: His design and namesake seems to be inspired by the Angel Michael.
- Badass Preacher: Founder of the Priest class.
- Barrier Maiden: He's preventing Ozma from coming into the world when you encounter him.
- In the Hood: Has his hood up at all times.
- Older Than They Look: Resembles a young adolescent man in spite being over centuries old.
Ozma of Chaos
Ozma was eventually defeated by heroes who had wandered into the Dark Side.
- The Corrupter: His influence is what gives the Avenger his powers.
- Also indirectly responisble for Kazan's Blood Curse, making him this to all Slayers.
- Deity of Human Origin
- Interface Screw: The absolute king of this, as his name implies: he can make your party's attacks damage each other, causing you to very quickly kill each other by accident if you're not prepared for it, force your characters to teleport around randomly, completely black out the screen except for a small area around him and cause the camera to focus on a different player: all of these can be countered by the player who's currently transformed into one of his demons, but figuring out what they should do is easier said than done, especially since lag can easily ruin your attempts. He's also protected by a barrier that takes repeated hits to break and only makes him vulnerable for short perioids of time: thanks to all the above and the fact that the effects can stack, all he needs to do is to create dark geysers of energy and slowly floating balls of darkness and an unco-ordinated party can easily lose tens of lives before being able to take him down. A later update toned this down somewhat: while he still has the habit of turning your party into weakened monsters, he's now invincible for most of the time and once the stones in the corners of the room are destroyed, it's easy to kill him before he does anything else.
The 13th Apostle - The One Who Knows All Secrets
- Unknown Character: As of right now
A being known as "the creator of all universes". He split himself into various parts and sealed all of them away, throwing the world into destruction and chaos. However, this ended with Nemyr's intervention, who also fashioned a being in her own image, the Knight, and scattered her various copies to the ends of the earth. Now currently missing, the Knights have been tasked by fate to find him. While not an Apostle himself, his power exceeds even that of Cain.
- Carry a Big Stick: His weapon is the Bludgeon, a weapon that is considered the weirdest out of the 5 slayer weapons (even compared to Lightsabre). It has a lot of ground-bouncing abilities, yet he literally uses his herculean strength to hurl people into the sky.
- Eskimo Land: Where the Bantus live or used to.
- Mother Russia Makes You Strong: Lives on a frozen mountain. Considering his huge size, it should be obvious that he's no ordinary warrior.
- The Big Guy: Of the 4 Blade Masters. Tallest NPC in the game, and his attack style reflects really well considering he has a lot of super armor. Becomes pretty scary when he can literally teleport after a short animation in front of you if you run too much. Amazing when he comes out of the teleport charging at you like a truck.
- Non-Standard Character Design: As an APC, his sprite is notably larger than the usual Slayer sprite and isn't based on it unlike the other 3 Blade Masters, meaning he uses his own custom animations for his attacks and movement.
- Scary Impractical Armor: Has skulls and pelts across his garb. It's quite a feat of seeing him for the first time and not being scared.
- Ascended Extra: Before the season 2 update he has only showed up in the animated prologue for the Female Slayer, a flashback cutscene at the beginning of the Time Break quests, and later in Confidential area in an epic quest. After the update he has showed up in nearly every epic quest prior to the Ghent quests, conversing with the player and assisting them in dungeons.
- Ambition Is Evil: Ever since the Screaming Cavern incident, he spearheaded the research in Vilmark, which turned the land around Lorien Forest to become an hellhole filled with mutated monsters by artificially making Metastasis. Why? Just so he could train with the monsters he lost from the Screaming Caverns to catch up to the rest of the Blade Masters. It has to be reminded that the Vilmark accident was so horrendous that everyone who spearheaded the research was executed by the empire (well, almost). Almost literally almost transforms him into an heroic Starscream if you think about his reputation. Siran is shocked by this VERY deeply.
- It's even worse when you know him from Female Slayer's main story. He's one of the leaders of the project after Vilmark of weaponizing children into Slayer soldiers.
- Dead All Along: His wife, Emily, who he mentioned a lot actually passed away years prior to the beginning of the story.
- Good Cop/Bad Cop: Compared to Hartz, he's literally the complete opposite, talkative and carefree. Though, compared to Hartz, he tends to also not think of plans that well.
- Multicolored Hair: Blonde with a single red strand of hair.
- Not Now, Kiddo: Literally is treated like this by most of the Blade Masters.
- Put on a Bus: Once his sprite appears up in Ghent, he resides there for the rest of the game.
- The Bus Came Back: He shows up again in the Castle of the Dead and the Luke's Laboratory storyline.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Hartz' Blue.
- Ki Manipulation: Unlike other Blade Masters, he's able to use Nen. He discovers the Time Gate with this.
- Older Than He Looks: Looks mid-30 but is really in his 50s after traveling through the Time Gate.
- Razor Wind: His Secret Slayer Technique (Or Secret Sword Art) releases massive sword waves again and again. His NPC tends to be almost Blade Beam spam at that point.
- That Didn't Happen: He used to teach not only Woo, but Sayoung, who became jealous of Woo's success to the point of selling his soul for more power. Siran refuses to acknowledge Sayoung as an apprentice because of this. At the end, Sayoung's obsession of mastering swordsmanship turned him into an monster, who you encounter in Frost Cave now. As Siran says, "A True Swordsman doesn't let his sword control his life".
- The Ageless: Due to the effects of the Time Gate, he's stopped aging and actually appears younger than his apprentice.
- The Gadfly: He's fond of using his Older Than They Look state to mess with people.
- Time Master: He can freely open the Time Gate, allowing those who travel through it to travel through time.
- Skunk Stripe: Has brown hair with a few streaks of white.
- Verbal Tic: Says "thang" in place of "thing" as part of his accent.
- What the Hell Is That Accent?: Never explained, but is said to have a thick Suju accent.
- BFS: Zanbato is a giant blade that is used by Berserkers or Blade Masters for their incredible Physical strength, even outdoing Bludgeons.
- Crusading Widower: The death of his lover, Roxy, left a great impact on him.
- Despair Event Horizon: After Roxy's death, and took a long time for him to recover.
- Interspecies Romance: With Roxy, a Dark Elf.
- I Work Alone: Tends to shy away from others, even his own fellow Legendary Grand Masters. He is, however, level 90, and more than capable of handling matters on his own.
- Heroic BSoD: Goes through one after Roxy dies, as seen in the Screaming Cave dungeon, when Siran approaches him asking him questions about the culprit behind the problems of the Time Gate area, Aganzo is too depressed to answer.
- Further proven in the Pre-Metastasis Tavern dungeon (now only accessible via Mirror Arad) where he is an enemy APC, as he is likely there to drown his sorrows.
- One-Handed Zweihänder: Downplayed; he carries it with one hand but uses both to swing it as he is an APC of the Male Slayer.
- Old Friends: With Linus.
- Peek-a-Bangs: His bangs covers one side of his face.
- Tornado Move: His Illusion Sword Dance creates freaking Tornados that follow you since Pre-Metastasis.
RoxyWhile not one of the Legendary Grand Masters, she traveled with them when investigating the Screaming Cave, and through her sacrifice, helped to put down Sirocco
- The Berserker: Has an arm possessed by Kazan, and to it's fullest potential allows her to singlehandedly slay an Apostle, although it exhausts her to the brink of death.

- Bishounen: In Slap-Up Party, it's revealed that all of them are super-handsome guys that attract girls the moment they take their pots off. They keep the pots on to keep a low profile in crowds. This was also referenced in largely underwhelming second anniversary event with a minigame that involved rapidly punching Danjin in the boxing ring and if you broke his pot 3 times, you saw his actual face which was as described above, complete with a rose between his teeth.
- Catchphrase: "You have to spend mawney to make mawney!"

- Really 219 Years Old: She's very young by Dark Elf standards.

- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Rude, abrasive, and acts like she doesn't care about anyone but herself... but very clearly cares deeply about the fate of Hendon Myre and restoring it to an inhabitable state.

This is toned down even further in the AIO patch, where she's introduced to you when she's in progress of trying to save her friend from the effects of Metastasis.

- Bare Your Midriff: Before Cataclysm, his outfit shows the majority of his torso.

- Evil Me Scares Me: She has this reaction when she encounters her pre-Metastasis self in the Nightmare.

This can lead to something of a hassle for Chaos players who rely largely on their Demon Soldiers and Magicians and discovers that Michelle is keeping them stunlocked because the game treats them similarly to enemies.
- HeelFace Turn: Pre-Metastasis, she was the boss of Verderia, now she's an NPC and also assists you during storyline quests.
- Leads to an "I didn't mean to harm anyone" event at the Ice Wall of Resignation Arc when she encounters her past self...
- Mind over Matter: Her power is primarily telekinesis, but she can also sense certain wavelengths and energies. In gameplay, this translates to her being able to project her power into the Nightmare without going inside, allowing her to assist you through Gimmick Levels.
- Shrinking Violet: She's quite timid and often shies out when she's uncomfortable in conversations, leaving to the player having to check up on her to see is she's okay. It's justified as she was bullied as a child and her past-self was cruel to the heart.

This was further parodied in an event where her horrible cooking was a magic potion ingredient with the description that nobody who's tasted her food can describe it, because "the dead tell no tales".

A scenario questline added shortly before the level 100 cap update shows that Captain Luther helped her escape by stowing her away on the Saint Horn.

- Taking You with Me: After his defeat, he tries this on a weakened Isys-Prey by using a last-ditch attack with his blood magic Abyss. Key word being "tries" — an FMV that plays immediately after his defeat shows that Hilder came to deflect the attack.

- Evil Mentor: To Silent Sergei, carrying on his composed demeanor and worship of Sarpoza to him.
- Full-Contact Magic: Walkman prefers to use Abyss to augment his physical attacks.
- Religious Bruiser: In as much of a 'religion' as Sarpoza has, there's a reason that he's called the "Royal Messenger". Just listen to the man:"He is a god, a savior, our religion. As a messiah of this world, he will open a new era. As his apostle, I spread his words. They are the truth. Everything is as he wishes."
- Large and in Charge: He strikes an abnormally large, imposing figure, and is one of the leadership of Kashipa.
- Wicked Cultured: Has a clean office in a land of desolate waste? Listens to vinyl records? Wears a formal suit and tie? Yeah, Walkman certainly carries himself highly.
Heart Destroyer RicardoLeader of the Kashipa Top Combat Unit "Demon".
- The Dragon: To Sarpoza. He's the one that shows up immediately before Sarpoza's chamber. Unfortunately for him, that doesn't last for very long.
- Evil Power Vacuum: The only reason why Isys's divine powers are enhancing his blood magic in Pandemonium War is because Isys's defeat enabled him to obtain said powers for himself, although it's never shown how he got them in the first place in the Pandemonium War scenario. When the Dungeon Fighters defeat him despite this, Sarpoza ends up taking Isys's divine power for himself from his useless subordinate.
- Power Incontinence: His berserk attack pattern in Pandemonium War has him unleashing his Isys-powered blood magic haphazardly all over the room.

"Laura" is her self-proclaimed perfect homunculi body. One of the bosses of the Operation:Hope dungeon.
Silver Light TagorLeader of the Kashipa Junior Looter Unit "Skullbird".

- Ambition Is Evil: Seeks to overthrow Yom, though in this case, it could be considered a case of Evil vs. Evil.
