Khonsu is an Endbringer.


He stands somewhere between Leviathan and Behemoth in height. He is broad, a feral Buddha in appearance. He is as jet-black, with something white or silver giving definition around the edges of his various features.  His face is a permanent snarl, frozen in place, his teeth silvery white behind the ebony lips. Tendrils like the whiskers of a catfish mark the corners of his mouth. He doesn’t wear clothes, but he has features somewhere between leaves and fins, with elaborate designs at the edges, curling away from elbows, his wrist, his fingers and around his legs. It makes his fingers and toes resemble claws, and leaves dangerous looking blades elsewhere. [1]

"All across the exterior of his body, there are gaps, like the gills of a fish, and that brilliant white or silver glimmered from beneath, a stark contrast to the absolute black that marked the rest of him.  It made me think of a tiger.  And at the center of it all, quite literally, there was a perfect sphere of that same material, a marble or a crystal ball, his body perched on the upper half and his legs attached to the lower half." [1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

In addition to standard Endbringer invulnerability, Khonsu possesses the ability to manipulate space and time. He has used this to speed and slow time immensely in the circular fields that orbit him. Given the immense amount of time that can pass in these fields,[2] people caught within are reduced to dust, skeletons, or bloody smears.[1] He can also use the fields on himself to accelerate his healing. He can dismiss, alter, speed up, or reverse the orbit of these circles.[3] These fields are surrounded by a sparkling cylindrical force field[1] that blocks energy and organic matter, but allows some visible light through[4]; Taylor speculated that he could choose what was able to move through them[1]

Khonsu has also displayed a long-distanced teleportation. After attacking Japan, he teleported to Cape Verde all the way in Africa. His teleportation creates a massive, tightly contained explosion. [1]

His body is also reinforced with layers of force fields beneath his "layers", which appear to cancel out a single attack, similar to Glory Girl's.[5] The layers alternate between silver and black[1].

He does not walk, rather he waddles in the air always floating a few feet off the ground.[1]



Birthed in a place of temporal anomalies.


Khonsu appeared in plain sight, then battled the assembled heroes of the world for three days. Cauldron negotiated with the major powers, persuading powerful capes to help battle him.[5] Credit for his defeat went to Moord Nag and Scion.[6]


He showed up again and was driven away much easier.[7]

Gold MorningEdit

After Eidolon's death, he imprinted on one of Teacher's minions, who sold his services to Cauldron.[8]


  • Khonsu is the first Endbringer not named after a Biblical/Talmudic creature. He also breaks the pattern of each Endbringer being about 15 feet shorter than the last by being between Leviathan and Behemoth in size.
  • Much like the Egyptian god he's named after, Khonsu has control over time. He is also mainly defensive in nature while his namesake is also known as the Defender.

  2. Was in the order of 1 year per .5 seconds. Bugs would die for lack of resources, and Khonsu wouldn't cooperate to that extent. - Reddit comment by Wildbow
  3. A new target every thirty minutes, give or take. Ten to twenty minutes for the defending forces to get their shit together. The remainder of that time was our capes trying to hurt him. Chipping away at him.

    Sometimes we made headway.

    Sometimes he crushed the bulk of the defending forces and then stood still, drawing those rotating columns of altered time to himself. Not covering himself, but allowing the altered time effects to graze the outer edges of his body. He’d heal, regenerating as much as half of the damage we’d done. - Excerpt from Scarab 25.5
  4. Aarik: how does that work actually, the time fields leave the corpses behind as they pass over them, but people can't leave.
    Wildbow: Barrier blocks organic matter
    Aarik: Ahhh
    Aarik: they leave behind the bones, so probably living organic matter specifically.
    Aarik: Could Weld just walk out then?
    Wildbow: Yep
    Aarik: And breaker capes who turn into an inorganic form?
    Wildbow: Some
    Hierophant: Khonsu is probably my favorite Endbringer and the most dangerous to fight IMO
    Hierophant: Mostly because you're so reliant on teleporters - those get killed, you can't do anything
    Wildbow: Less likely, the barrier also filters energy. It's why sunlight/heat don't accumulate indefinitely within.
    Aarik: So mostly just people who turn into stuff like water/stone/dirt/metal.
    Wildbow: Weld is kind of a special case
    Hierophant Could Myrddin hide in a pocket dimension
    Hierophant: to avoid it
    Wildbow: Probably not - Comments by Wldbow on IRC, archived on Spacebattles
