A long, long time ago, a mysterious man rose to power literally from out of nowhere. His name was Gargos, and at only 17 years old, he was already making quite a name for himself. With only a few weapons and limited soldiers at his expense, he had already conquered a great deal of the countryside, won a good number of battles, and terrorized quite a few villages. As Gargos's victories increased, he found a large number of soldiers who were ready and willing to join him in his quest for destruction. With Gargos's arsenal and manpower supply growing every day, Gargos was well on his way to total power.

The Legend told about the powerful and immortal warrior Gargos, but it said that whoever freed him would have complete control over him.  This was not true, as many warlords found out, as they freed him, and tried to make him their slave. Four or five times, Gargos would be sealed away, only to be freed again. During his last and current period of freedom, Gargos found that his claim to the earth was being challenged by a new warrior named Eyedol. Like Gargos, he had been mutated, and it was rumored that he also challenged the gods and won.  Eyedol seemed to also have some prior grudge against Gargos.  It wasn't long before the two behemoths clashed in battle, but before a conclusion could be reached, Eyedol disappeared.

Only moments later, a strange building appeared.  Gargos went to it, hoping to find an answer to what happened.  Before he knew it, he had been captured by a strange new power he was unfamiliar with. After a few days, Gargos learned that he was in the Ultratech Corporation, a building from about 2000 years in the future.

Killer Instinct 2


Killer Instinct Gold, Killer Instinct (2013


Page Updated:  June 30th, 2020

As the boss of Killer Instinct 2, he was at least less "awkward" than Eyedol. He was also, perhaps, a tad less original and interesting... but Gargos was a solid fighting game boss for the time, and suited the series pretty well. 

And for you 90's kids... Gargos might've reminded you of some of the characters from that cool cartoon series, Gargoyles. ;) After nearly 2 decades, it was awesome to Gargos return in Killer Instinct Season 3. His new design is badass and one of my favorite in the game for sure!
