Disney vs Non-Disney Villains
Pre War: The Dark Council and Chronos
Before the war began, Hades was one of the leading members of the Dark Council, along with his future lover, Eris. As word quickly spread of the Three Demon Lord's plot to use the dreaded power of their super crystal, the Council quickly set forth to destroy it. As the Council arrived on Bald Mountain, Hades' father, Chronos, arrived, having secretly allied himself with Hordak and Narissa of the Council. Hades, outraged at this attack, battled his father. As Hades summoned his pet Hydra to deal with his father's henchmen, Chronos covered Hades in a curtain of lava. Hades fought back, and knocked Chronos into a portal that lead to the River Styx. Hades and the rest of the loyal council members then turned their attention to the dark crystal, destroying it, much to Chernabog's fury.
Losing the Throne
Plotting another assault on his brother Zeus, king of the gods, Hades meets with the Fates, who tell him of the powerful spirit of destruction, Hexxus, sealed away in a tree in ages past. Hades flies to Hexxus' resting place in FernGully, where he destroys the spirit's prison and asks him to serve as his minion. Hexxus refuses to serve as anyone's cannon-fodder and attacks Hades, who manages to escape back to the Underworld. However, Hexxus follows the god to his lair and gets the better of Hades, knocking him into the River Styx. Upon Hades' defeat, his power and status are both transferred to Hexxus, who becomes the new god of the Underworld.
Her Name is Eris
Later, as war spreads across the mortal world, Hades manages to free himself from the River. Escaping Hexxus' notice, he realizes he will need the aid of another god in reclaiming his realm. Travelling to the realm of Tartarus, Hades finds Eris, the goddess of chaos. Proposing an alliance and promising Eris joint-rulership of the Underworld if she helps him, Hades manages to win the goddess over to his side, and the two begin a lustful affair. This alliance expands when Hades empowers the soul of Doctor Facilier, who had recently been killed by Mok Swagger. Facilier is returned to the mortal world, where he kills the Grand Duke of Owls, who Hades and Eris see as a potential threat.
Defeating the EmperorAfter Eris brings the soul of the deposed Pharaoh Rameses into the alliance, she spurs Hades into action by accusing him of cowardice, since he had done very little in battling Hexxus' forces in this time. She suggests he demonstate his power by destroying the Emperor of the Night, a demon laying waste to the mortal world. Hades attacks the emperor, but he responds by coating Hades in ice. Though the emperor puts up quite a fight, Hades triumphs over his foe using a spellbook that Eris had given him, Hades next sets his sights on a rematch with Hexxus.
Regaining the Throne
Telling Hexxus to meet him in FernGully, Hades makes preparations for his battle by sending Facilier to take back the Underworld and releasing the ancient spirit of the Firebird as his champion. Hexxus shows up for the battle controlling a war machine, but the combined power of Hades and the Firebird manage to reimprison Hexxus within the tree he had originally been sealed in. Reclaiming his power as god of the dead, Hades returns home, where he swears to punish his minions, Pain and Panic, for serving Hexxus after his coup. Despite this, Hades shows no loyalty to his recent ally, telling Eris he no longer needs her and casting her out of the Underworld. Telling Hades he has made another powerful enemy, Eris departs, taking Rameses with her.
Fight on Olympus
After reclaiming his throne, Hades stays out of the war for a while, seeing the squabbles of the other villains as beneath his interest. During the battle of Paris, however, he decids to amuse himself by summoning the Hydra in the center of the conflict. After Eris intervenes by summoning Sharptooth, who killed the serpent, Hades departs to see to another of his plans, releasing the Titans from their age-old prison. As the Titans march on Olympus, Eris again tries to sabotage the god's plan by pitting a batch of her own monsters against the Titans. Although Eris' Dragon destroys the Rock Titan, the rest of the Titans rally together and defeat Eris' forces, leaving Hades free to continue his plot. This time, he succeeds, overthrowing Zeus and ascending to become ruler of the gods.

Indirect ActionHades first notices the signs of war when the Snow Queen changes into a more combat-ready form. Taking note, he realizes her petty feud with Shan Yu will interfere with his long-term plans. Thus, he tasks the former businessman turned god, Odin, to eliminate her. Fortunately for Hades's plans, he succeeds. In addition, Hades gives powers to the Gangreen Gang, helping them defeat Negaduck's Fearsome Five. This move, however, proves contradictory to Hades's overall interests. The Gangreen Gang never repays him for the powers, forcing Hades to send the Weird Sisters to eliminate them. They succeed.
Rekindling an Old Flame
After the fall of Ruber, Hades tries to strike up a relationship with the most powerful magic user on Earth, Maleficent. She, however, points to his lustful relationship with Eris during the first war; unsurprisingly, she spurns his affections. He leaves, dejected.
An Enemy Returns
During this period, Hades's servants, Nessus and Typhon, are killed in mysterious circumstances. For a time, Hades is unsure of the identity of the enemy. He thus resolves to find some more help, hiring the Gorgon Sisters and Echidna to help him in his battles. The Gorgon Sisters prove their worth immediately, taking out the Trix, a trio of witches allied with the same forces responsible for Nessus and Typhon's deaths. Hades remains aloof of these events but faces a much larger threat in the form of Samhain, a ghost trying to take over the Underworld. After Pain and Panic fail to deal with the intruder, Hades takes it upon himself to roast the pumpkin-headed ghost. Since Samhain dodges the god's fireballs, Hades summons the Headless Horseman to deal with the threat. The Horseman does frighten Samhain away, but a far more powerful enemy reveals herself.
As it turns out, Eris, Hades's flame from the first war, is behind all the recent attacks. Samhain and the Trix are both in her employ. Her new ally, Aku, killed both Nessus and Typhon. She taunts Hades briefly before teleporting away, leaving Hades to stew in his rage.
Taking Down Eris
Hades realizes he needs more men to take down Eris's forces. He discovers the spirit of Gaston, a disgruntled combatant from the first war. Hades sees potential in Gaston and has Facilier turn him into a monster, in order to give him a test run. It proves a good idea, as Gaston manages to defeat two of Eris's henchmen, Queen Chrysalis and King Sombra, where Echidna's Children fail to achieve the same task. Loki, Chaos, and Nemesis all join Hades's faction in anticipation of destroying Eris. As a reward for the hunter's services, Hades transforms Gaston back into a human.
The Battle of the Underworld
Eris's forces attack the Underworld in full. Hades lets his minions take out the majority of Eris's men, though he personally intervenes to take down Aku, the being responsible for killing so many of his monsters. He catches the arrows Aku fires at him and tears through the demon with a blast of fire. Aku reforms himself into a scorpion and readies himself to strike, but Hades is ready. Firing fireballs from his finger as if it were a gun, he banishes Aku into the lowest pits of the Underworld.
But Eris herself enters the fray, transforming into a massive golem. Though Hades uses a massive trident to repel her, the goddess of discord is immune to the strike and crushes Hades with a pillar. Just as she is about to deliver a killing blow, Chaos leaps in the way and dies in Hades's stead. Hades retaliates, firing a small harpoon into the golem's foot. He then lengthens the harpoon's rope, tying up Eris. Yet she burns through the ropes and continues to advance. Finally, Hades summons the resolve to destroy his former lover. With one great blast of the trident, he shatters the golem. As Eris screams, Hades destroys her by sealing her in a flaming coffin.
One of the Fates alerts Hades to the Battle of the Forbidden Mountain: the forces of Skeletor are about to overrun it and kill Maleficent. Hades, not one to let his loved one die, departs to join the fray. He arrives just in time, blocking Skeletor's shot as he is about to kill Maleficent. Skeletor manages to knock him away, but only briefly. With one massive exertion of force, Hades knocks Skeletor out of the battlefield and forces him to retreat. In gratitude, Maleficent officially resumes a romantic relationship with Hades. In the wake of this, Hades resurrects Lady Waltham's brother, Clayton.
But all is not to end well for Hades. An old enemy of Doctor Facilier, Mok, resurfaces and takes over the Underworld with the aid of Loki, a traitor, while Hades is celebrating on Olympus. Even more tragic is the presumed death of Maleficent to Hordak, Skeletor's former mentor. Dejected, Hades tells his allies to "retire his number" and decides to drop out of the war. In his stead, Ursula, Maleficent's greatest lieutenant, takes control of the faction.

The Fall of a God
Searching for a new minion to use against his brother Zeus to conquer Olympus, Hades is informed by the Fates of a rising villain named Doctor Facilier. Traveling to New Orleans, Hades contacts the voodoo sorcerer and demands his servitude. Facilier refuses to be a pawn in Hades' game, and Hades leaves in anger, swearing to make the doctor pay for his hubris. Instead, Facilier decides to take action before Hades can fulfill his threat, storming the Underworld. Taking Hades by surprise, Facilier has his shadow demons toss his adversary into the River Styx. With Hades out of the picture, Facilier takes advantage of the moment to become the new god of the dead.
A few days later, Hades manages to free himself from the Styx, fleeing the Underworld to seek allies. Visiting Maleficent, with whom he had dealings with in the past, Hades explains the situation to her and requests her aid. Needing allies of her own after several attacks by other villains, Maleficent accepts this alliance. Not long after, Facilier finds an ally in Queen Narissa, who tells him of Hades' survival, leading the doctor to make plans to finish what he started by destroying Hades.
Planning to build an army to take back the Underworld, Hades and Maleficent bring the gargoyle Demona into their service. While searching for magic artifacts they can use as weapons, Hades and Demona battle the Evil Manta, who was easily defeated. Returning to Forbidden Mountain, Hades is shocked when Maleficent brings the sorcerer Jafar into their alliance. Not trusting the scheming vizier, Hades swears to keep an eye on him.
Hades next sends Demona to battle the Horned King, who he fears might pose a threat to Maleficent and himself. The necromancer defeats Demona in battle and forces her to retreat, leaving Hades' service in shame. Seeking another minion, Hades visits Morgana, whom he hears has come into possession of the trident of Triton, becoming master of the seas. However, Morgana refuses to associate herself with Hades after hearing how Facilier had beaten him, and Hades swears to make her pay as well.
The Rise and Fall of the Titans
Having lost the Fates to Facilier, Hades seeks out the Witches of Morva to tell him of potential weapons to use against his enemy. The Witches inform Hades of the Titans, old enemies of Zeus that had been imprisoned many years ago, and tell him that the time was coming when the planets would align, making it possible to free the Titans. Thanking the Witches and bringing them into his service, Hades begins plotting to use the Titans against his many enemies and competitors.
Returning to Maleficent, Hades realizes that Jafar is gaining more of her favor after the death of his servant Merlock. Hades' suspicion of Jafar grows as the sorcerer begins moving to replace him.
As the planets finally align, Hades releases the Titans from their prison and sends them against his enemies: Facilier, Narissa, Morgana, Odin (Erik Hellstorm), and the Queen of Hearts. Hades personally oversees his attack on Morgana with the Ice Titan, overcoming her and her pet, Monstro. Hades lays claim to the Trident and has Morgana frozen solid. Meanwhile, Facilier and Narissa use the Firebird to destroy the Rock Titan; Odin and his Chaos Lord of Ice defeat the Lava Titan; the Wind Titan slays Pete in Wonderland; the Cyclops ravages Narissa's old kingdom after killing her servant Nathaniel and his troll minion.
Surveying the damage, Hades is ambushed by Jafar, who sends the giant cat Felicia against him. Hades summons his hound Cerberus to defend him, and the guardian of the Underworld tears Felicia apart. Jafar leaves, not wanting to incur further wrath from the Titans.
Just as it seems Hades might be making progress, the alien warlord Emperor Zurg and his army prepare to invade Earth by using a laser cannon to destroy the remaining Titans. Jafar returns to slay the enraged former god, but the two reach a stalemate in their battle. Hades retreats after Jafar's cobra form bests him in combat, and tells Maleficent of Jafar's betrayal. Agreeing to concentrate on bringing Jafar down before attacking the Underworld, Maleficent and Hades hire the Hunnic warlord Shan Yu to replace Jafar.
With Hades and Maleficent after his head, Jafar arrives in the Underworld to cast his lot in with Facilier and Narissa. Bringing along a mystic amulet and knowledge of Forbidden Mountain's defenses, Jafar uses the amulet to summon some allies: Sa'Luk, Jackal, and Mozenrath. These warriors attack Maleficent's fortress and clash with the sorceress and Shan Yu. Sa'Luk is killed in the battle, and Jackal and Mozenrath retreat, but not without crippling Maleficent's forces.
On his way out, Jackal finds Hades communing with the Egyptian god of the dead, Anubis. Hades tries to get his fellow god to lend his aid, but when Anubis refuses, Hades settles with trying to absorb his power. Jackal interrupts the process and takes Anubis' power for his own, but Hades bests him in battle and knocking him out into a deep slumber. Meanwhile, Mozenrath defeats Hades' minion Nessus while making his own escape.
With their forces destroyed and their stronghold in tatters, Hades, Maleficent, and Shan Yu depart the Forbidden Mountain, finding another base to use while plotting their comeback. It isn't long before Facilier and Narissa arrive and take the citadel for their own, converting it into Bald Mountain in order to summon their secret master.
Revenge at Last
Hunting down Demona, Maleficent discovers that the gargoyle was transformed into a human after being cursed by Mirage. Lifting the curse and restoring Demona's natural form, Maleficent brings Demona back into the fold. Meanwhile, Hades and Shan Yu discovers Jafar has turned himself into a nearly all-powerful genie. Both holding grudges against Jafar, the former god and the Hun decide to bring Jafar down before he might destroy them.
Assaulting Agrabah, where Jafar has made the city a living hell, Hades and Shan Yu battle their enemy. Jafar takes on his genie form and kills the Hun, but Hades takes advantage of the distraction provided by his pawn's death, destroying Jafar's lamp and seemingly eradicating Jafar.
With Jafar out of the way, Hades returns to the Underworld, giving Facilier one last chance to surrender peacefully. The voodoo sorcerer refuses, and the two mortal enemies bring their allies into battle. Both Narissa and Maleficent die in the ensuing showdown, leaving Hades on his own for the rematch...or so it seems. The Witches of Morva intervene as the Fates try to cut Hades' life thread, making their master immortal once more. Hades then destroys Facilier's shadow demons and drains Facilier's soul.
Although the Underworld is Hades's once more, the danger is far from over. Prior to his death, Facilier summoned the demon Chernabog into the mortal world, threatening all of existence. Hades sends Cerberus to assist in the final stand against the Black God, but like so many other villains, the hellhound is destroyed by Chernabog. Help comes from an unlikely source, as Zeus himself arrived and banishes Chernabog back into the pits of Hell.
With the war finally over, Hades begins drawing up plans for another offensive against Olympus, now having regained all his powers. He amuses himself in the meantime by torturing Facilier's soul, forcing him to relive his own death for the rest of eternity.

With yet another of his plans to take over Olympus gone awry, Hades sulks in the Underworld. All of a sudden, a swarm of Frost Giants tear through the Underworld, led by the trickster god, Loki. As Loki announces his intention to take over the Underworld, Hades immolates the Frost Giants. Loki blasts Hades back with a pulse of dark energy, but Hades quickly recovers. He hurls his fire at Loki, only for the trickster god to dissipate into crows and then reform elsewhere. When Loki tries to blast him again, Hades teleports away, gaining the high ground. He then knocks Loki down with a burst of flame and casts him deep into the Underworld.
Assembling an Alliance
After the attack of Loki, Hades senses the tides of war coming. Seeing that he can use the war to his advantage, Hades pairs up with the most powerful magical heinge knows: Maleficent. Maleficent ensures him that one of her pet projects will be of use to their alliance. Hades then recruits the fallen mutant, Avalanche, thinking he might be useful for the faction. Maleficent reveals her end of the project: a powerful alliance of Jafar, Ursula, Captain Hook, and Pete. Jafar, however, does not take kindly to Hades's involvement with the alliance. Hades thus decides to remove the threat. During Jafar's battle with Magneto, Hades transforms Jafar into a genie, knowing full well that Jafar's metal lamp that keeps him alive is a massive target for Magneto to exploit. Jafar perishes, and Hades denies him resurrection.
A man named Simon Williams comes to Hades in hopes of acquiring superpowers. Williams seeks to ruin David Xanatos after Xanatos ruined his company. Hades obliges and transforms Williams into Wonderman. At the last second, Hades demands Wonderman's servitude for all eternity. Wonderman, furious, throws a blast of energy at Hades. The blow misses, leading Hades to respond with a fireball of his own. Wonderman dodges, firing a laser from his palm that actually stuns Hades. Hades summons some dead hands to capture Wonderman, but he flies into the air. Wonderman grabs Hades, but Hades destroys his hand with a blast of fiery energy. Hades then disintegrates his foe, though Wonderman is not so dead as Hades would think.
A Princess Appears
Hades returns to home base, where Captain Hook and Avalanche are waiting. Maleficent, however, has disappeared, leaving behind Snow White in the throne room. Hades and the other allies of the faction are soon called upon to defend Snow White when Baron Strucker and the Grim Reaper attack. After Captain Hook manages to incapacitate the Grim Reaper, Hades blasts the Nazi enforcer out of the castle window. Hades then turns his attention to a large robot that Strucker has activated; using a universal remote, he manages to put the robot out of commission. Strucker, however, manages to drop a chandelier upon Hades's head. When Hades recovers, he finds Hook triumphant over the body of Strucker. However, Ursula abandons the alliance completely.
Defeating a Demon
Maleficent soon returns, giving Hades some hope for the future of the war. In the meantime, Hades acquires Ursula's trident, as the sea witch has perished without the aid of the alliance. Having heard that Dormammu has been trying to re-surface, Hades summons Doubt and heads off to eliminate his foe. The two underworld baddies encounter Dormammu, recently summoned by his acolytes, Baron Mordo and Venom. Hades easily defeats Venom with a blast of the trident. Doubt tries to defeat Dormammu, but the more powerful demon kills him. Hades then uses his trident to cast both Dormammu and Venom into the netherworld. Mordo escapes while Hades revels in his victory.
