Cerberus is Hades' three-headed guard dog whose main duty is to guard the entrance to the Underworld. He made his first appearance in Hercules. He is one of Echidna and Typhon's children.



Cerberus first appears when Hades is riding down the River Styx and is fed a massive steak. Later, Hercules tames the beast and uses him to get to Hades inner sanctum, though this is only a temporary turn driven by fear.


Cerberus appears as a rambunctious puppy Hades has difficulties in controlling.
