Here's the character sheet for Primal Rage:

Introduced in first game:


  • Good Is Not Soft: He may be by far the nicest of the Draconians, by he is still more than capable of pounding the shit out of the other gods.
  • King Kong Copy: He looks like a giant white-and-blue gorilla.
  • Megaton Punch: His Extinction 'To Da Moon'. He punches the opponent so hard, they fly off-screen and land in the background.



  • Blue and Orange Morality: Armadon is fighting to protect the Earth and its ecosystem as a whole. Humans don't really matter to him, though his victory would definitely be a good thing for humanity (because it means freedom from the more dangerous gods).
  • Advertisement:
  • Expy: His electrical powers make him the Primal Rage equivalent to Raiden.
  • Gaia's Vengeance: Fights to protect the Urth's ecological balance from the destruction caused by the gods' battles.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Falling Spikes. He fires out giant spikes from his body into the air that land on his opponent.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's slow but very strong.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: A cross between a Triceratops, Ankylosaurus, and Stegosaurus.
  • Shock and Awe: One of his Extinctions, Meditation. Also Taken for Granite.


  • Blue and Orange Morality: He's a Virtuous Beast, but his victory is not a good thing for humanity (given that he's fighting for raptorkind instead).
  • Expy: His flying kick makes him the Primal Rage equivalent to Liu Kang.
  • Fragile Speedster: Well, he is a raptor. He's the smallest and fastest character in the game
  • Jerkass: Though less malicious than just apathetic toward mankind.
  • Nominal Hero: Considers humans no more than cattle.
  • Papa Wolf: Fights for a tribe of smaller raptors that he considers his children.
  • Raptor Attack: One of the most recognized examples of the trope.
  • Zerg Rush: One of his Extinctions, Stampede, involves summoning a pack of young raptors to shred the fallen opponent.


  • Expy: He has fire-based powers and even has a Fatality where he breathes skin-burning fire, much like Scorpion.
  • Kill It with Fire: He has two Extinctions under this category.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: His main motivation is to destroy everything and leave behind only the most evil.



  • Anti-Villain: Is one of the Destructive Beasts, yet has a noble goal in mind.
  • Expy: His cannonball move makes him similar to Kano.
  • Fartillery: One of his moves has him literally fart a cloud of green gas that slowly floats to the other side of the screen (and dissipates after travelling one screen-length); if the opponent fails to evade it, they will be stunned. He's also the current trope image.
