The Disney+ show, Moon Knight, has been making waves since it debuted on the streaming platform. It is quite popular and has captured the imagination of fans everywhere. Perhaps, one of the most fascinating aspects of this show has been the adaptation of Egyptian mythology and gods. This adaptation makes it stand out from the crowd.
Quite a few Egyptian gods and deities have been featured in the show so far. They give the show mystery and terror in equal measure. They and their origin stories are very fascinating. While some of these gods have a benevolent streak in them, others have a dark and terrifying side. Today, we rank the 5 most terrifying Egyptian Gods from Moon Knight. Let us know who frightens you the most, share it in the comments section below.
1. Ammit – Devourers Hearts! (The most Terrifying God in Moon Knight)
This deity was more feared than being worshiped, and it is not hard to see why. Having the physical characteristics of a crocodile, this goddess desires to bring death to all sinners before they commit their evil acts. She is also known as the Devourer of Souls.
In Egyptian mythology, she is said to have eaten the hearts of souls not found to be justified by Osiris. Moreover, she is said to possess a potent form of dark magic, and she is surely the stuff nightmares are made of. She ranks as the most terrifying goddess amongst all the deities in Moon Knight.
2. Hathor/ Sekhmet – Bloodthirsty!
Hathor is the goddess of love and beauty. However, she has a dark side to her. In the comics, the story goes, that she was sent by her father to punish humanity. This made her hungry for death, and she became bloodthirsty. This transformed her into Sekhmet. Sekhmet ranks as the second most scary Egyptian Goddess on this list. Her transformation from such a benign deity to something so monstrous is terrifying!
3. Khonshu – A Force of Vengeance (One of the most Prominent Gods in Moon Knight)
He is the Egyptian god of the moon and time. Depending on the ancient text one is referring to, he is either depicted as a heroic deity or feared as a violent and blood-thirsty God! He was banished a long time ago by other deities and considers himself to be a force of vengeance. He is also perhaps one of the most important gods in this series.
4. Isis – Resurrected her Dead Husband
She is often described as the goddess of the moon and fertility. There is a myth that she resurrected her dead husband to conceive a son! This terrifying fact qualifies her to rank at number 4 on our list.
5. Osiris – God of the Dead
Next on the list is Osiris. Osiris is the God of the dead and fertility. He was murdered by his evil brother but was resurrected by his wife later on.
