Apostle

Like all Gods, Poseidon can select any mortal Player within the Obelisk and give them his holy power and transform them into his "shadow" and granting them gigantic amounts of power.

Due to him being a Greater God and one of the 12 Olympians, Poseidon's Apostles are noted to be exceptionally powerful and are stated to even be superior to other Apostles.

Later after Benteke was severely injured by Cha Yeon-woo and some of his holiness taken by him by absorbing his right arm, Poseidon showcased that he could actually merge his consciousness with his Apostle and take control of his body for his own use. This is seen where he had attempted to overpower and usurp control of Benteke's body for his own use to fight against Yeon-woo himself.

  • Descend: Later after Benteke was weakened and "killed" by Yeon-woo, Poseidon managed to then successfully possess his body and descend into the Lower Floors. As seen by Yeon-woo, upon incarnating and possessing his body, Benteke's body was stated to transform into a water like form and his eyes turning pure blue.
    • Martyrdom: Poseidon showed that by using the deaths of his believers, worshipers and Apostles of his Children Gods, he can successfully empower his Apostles's body and further strengthen to house his consciousness and power and greatly extend the amount of time he can remain within the Lower Floors and increased the durability of his possessed host body to be able to better contain him and slow down its breakdown.

    Power/Blessing

    As a God, Poseidon can give his chosen apostle or a player that he had come to favor, a unique and immensely powerful skill that embodies his "concept" as a God. Due to him being a Greater God and one of the 12 Olympians, the Powers he gives away are considered superior to other Gods.

      • Sea God's Seawall: Another skill given by this blessings is the ability to give complete protection to anyone blessed with it while out sea. This is seen where his Apostle Benteke was able to use this power to completely shield his armada of ships of Triton and insure that they are completely protected from any hostile forces or any element that can complicate their sea voyages within the River of Souls of the 27th Floor.
      • Sea Regeneration: Another ability granted by this power is granting his Apostle near immortality while out at sea. This is seen where Benteke's body was completely obliterated by Yeon-woo power and his body reduced to minced meat, Bentenke was able to easily regenerate, restore and rebuild his body using sea water and sea foam and recreate any lost body part he lost during the explosion.
      • Weather Manipulation: As a God of Storms, Poseidon can also give his Apostle the ability to freely manipulate the weather and create sea storm typhoons.

      Poseidon is shown to have a large, muscular build and is one of the tallest Olympians. He has long, silky silver hair and a long, silky silver beard that appears to twist at the end. He appears to wear a turquoise sash and multiple golden accessories. Poseidon has golden yellow eyes and wears a golden crown that could possibly signify him being king of the seas.

      Poseidon appeared to have a strained patience for his brother Zeus and his many affairs, as he held Zeus, who was also his king, to high standards and expected him to abide by the laws and rules Zeus had established otherwise they were a pointless joke. When at last the issues of Zeus and Hera drove a wedge between the Gods of Olympus, Poseidon chose to side with Hera, whom he thought would be more fair and just in abiding by the laws of Olympus. until Hera offered the Giants dominion over his seas, and Poseidon refused to surrender his own kingdom and went back to Zeus, claiming Hera was mad. But Zeus saw through Poseidon, correctly guessing what she'd done and how it didn't sit well with the sea god, but he accepted him nonetheless, though Poseidon was still humbled by the gesture.


      Temple of Poseidon in Sounion

      Archaeological evidence indicates that Sounion was a sacred area as far back as the Bronze Age, but the temple visible in our day was built in the middle of the 5th century BCE (between 444 and 440 BCE). It was part of the ambitious building project initiated by Perikles, which included other renown temples such as the Parthenon and the Hephaisteion. Given the similariteis of the Temple of Poseidon to the Hephaisteion and the temple of Nemesis in Rhamnous, many historians have concluded that they were designed by the same architect. One particularly unifying feature of all three temples is the fact that the columns of the porch were aligned with the third column of the peristyle.

      An inscription confirms that the temple was dedicated to Poseidon, and it was built upon the remains of an even earlier poros temple whose foundations are still visible. This Archaic temple was razed by the Persians in 490 BCE when it still under construction. Very little is known about this earlier temple, but it is certain that it was a revered landmark, visible from afar as sailors approached or left the safety of the Attica harbors. The newer temple closely follows the size and plan of the more ancient one.

      The temple of Poseidon was a peripteral building of the Doric order, made of marble from nearby Agrileza, with six columns at its ends and thirteen on each long side for a total of 34--of which thirteen survive today. Four of the north columns were reconstructed in the late 1950's. The Doric colums are about 20 feet tall and three feet in diameter, with the unusual number of 16 flutes instead of the usual 20. The base of the temple consists of two stacked terraces that supported the peristyle, the cella, the pronaos, and the opisthodromos. The temple's stylobate is 31.1 x 13.4 meters.

      The temple's metopes were smooth with no decoration, but the architrave of the pronaos was decorated with a shallow Ionic continous frieze. The frieze's fragments that have survived are baddly erroded but it is believed they illustrated popular mythological themes of amazonomachy (or a battle between Centaurs and Lapiths), gigantomachy, and the deeds of Theseus. They were carved in white marble from Paros. The pediments' raking cornice had a pitch of 12.5° (instead of the usual 15°) and were decorate with sculptures, of which only one fragmented seated female figure has survived.


      Poseidon missile

      Poseidon missile, U.S. submarine-launched ballistic missile introduced in 1971 to replace the Polaris missile. The two-stage Poseidon had about the same range as its predecessor (2,800 miles [4,500 km]), but it could carry up to 14 independently targetable nuclear warheads and deliver them with twice the accuracy. The multiple warheads effectively quadrupled the arsenal of each submarine, while the greater accuracy allowed each warhead to be reduced to a blast effect, or yield, of 50 kilotons (one-quarter that of each Polaris warhead).

      At the height of the Poseidon program, 31 nuclear-powered submarines carried 16 missiles each. In 1979 the Poseidon began to be phased out in favour of the longer-range Trident missile.

      Scale

      In the same way that his generals Marina receive the gift of powerful armors known as Scales, The Emperor of the Seas also has his own Scale. It is far superior to those used by their Navy, and is one of the divine armor that only the gods can carry. It was forged in the image of the powerful ruler of the seas, Poseidon, brandishing a trident, a great symbol of their power and dominion. This gun seems to possess immense power and seems fully associated with the god. The armor itself has no particular known object and its shape resembles a bearded god, you can print an image.

      As with the other eleven Olympians, Poseidon also has a Kamui, or Divine Cloth. But it was never shown in the original manga by Kurumada. In the diagram of the clothing that appears in the manga, we find the nature of the cloth of Poseidon, is a Scales. According to their kanji (Poseidon Scales not) is not a Kamui.

      Poseidon was the second son of titans Cronus and Rhea. In most accounts he is swallowed by Cronus at birth but later saved, with his other brothers and sisters, by Zeus. However, in some versions of the story, he, like his brother Zeus, did not share the fate of his other brother and sisters who were eaten by Cronus. He was saved by his mother Rhea, who concealed him among a flock of lambs and pretended to have given birth to a colt, which she gave to Cronus to devour.

      According to John Tzetzes the kourotrophos, or nurse of Poseidon was Arne, who denied knowing where he was, when Cronus came searching according to Diodorus Siculus Poseidon was raised by the Telchines on Rhodes, just as Zeus was raised by the Korybantes on Crete.

      According to a single reference in the Iliad, when the world was divided by lot in three, Zeus received the sky, Hades the underworld and Poseidon the sea. In the Odyssey (v.398), Poseidon has a home in Aegae. The foundation of Athens

      Athena became the patron goddess of the city of Athens after a competition with Poseidon. Yet Poseidon remained a numinous presence on the Acropolis in the form of his surrogate, Erechtheus. At the dissolution festival at the end of the year in the Athenian calendar, the Skira, the priests of Athena and the priest of Poseidon would process under canopies to Eleusis. They agreed that each would give the Athenians one gift and the Athenians would choose whichever gift they preferred. Poseidon struck the ground with his trident and a spring sprang up the water was salty and not very useful, whereas Athena offered them an olive tree.

      The Athenians or their king, Cecrops, accepted the olive tree and along with it Athena as their patron, for the olive tree brought wood, oil and food. After the fight, infuriated at his loss, Poseidon sent a monstrous flood to the Attic Plain, to punish the Athenians for not choosing him. The depression made by Poseidon's trident and filled with salt water was surrounded by the northern hall of the Erechtheum, remaining open to the air.

      Poseidon and Apollo, having offended Zeus by their rebellion in Hera's scheme, were temporarily stripped of their divine authority and sent to serve King Laomedon of Troy. He had them build huge walls around the city and promised to reward them well, a promise he then refused to fulfill. In vengeance, before the Trojan War, Poseidon sent a sea monster to attack Troy. The monster was later killed by Heracles.

      Consorts and Children

      His consort was Amphitrite Halosydne, a nymph and ancient sea-goddess, daughter of Nereus and Doris, whith whom he had children: Triton, Benthesikyme, and Rhodos.

      Poseidon was the father of many heroes. He is thought to have fathered the famed Theseus.

      A mortal woman named Tyro was married to Cretheus (with whom she had one son, Aeson) but loved Enipeus, a river god. She pursued Enipeus, who refused her advances. One day, Poseidon, filled with lust for Tyro, disguised himself as Enipeus, and from their union were born the heroes Pelias and Neleus, twin boys. Poseidon also had an affair with Alope, his granddaughter through Cercyon, his son and King of Eleusis, begetting the Attic hero Hippothoon. Cercyon had his daughter buried alive but Poseidon turned her into the spring, Alope, near Eleusis.

      Poseidon rescued Amymone from a lecherous satyr and then fathered a child, Nauplius, by her.

      After having raped Caeneus, Poseidon fulfilled her request and changed her into a male warrior.

      A mortal woman named Cleito once lived on an isolated island Poseidon fell in love with the human mortal and created a dwelling sanctuary at the top of a hill near the middle of the island and surrounded the dwelling with rings of water and land to protect her. She gave birth to five sets of twin boys the firstborn, Atlas, became the first ruler of Atlantis.

      Not all of Poseidon's children were human. In an archaic myth, Poseidon once pursued Demeter. She spurned his advances, turning herself into a mare so that she could hide in a herd of horses he saw through the deception and became a stallion and captured her. Their children were Despoina and a horse, Arion, which was capable of human speech. Poseidon is more often regarded as the tamer of horses, but in some myths he is their father, either by spilling his seed upon a rock or by mating with a creature who then gave birth to the first horse.

      Poseidon also had sexual intercourse with Medusa on the floor of a temple to Athena. Medusa was then changed into a monster by Athena. When she was later beheaded by the hero Perseus, Chrysaor and Pegasus emerged from her neck.

      There is also Polyphemus (the cyclops) and, finally, Alebion and Bergion and Otos and Ephialtae (the giants).


      King Poseidon is a vain, flamboyant, self-centered monarch whose life mostly revolves around his looks as he believes that his facial features are what makes him a true king. He is also somewhat comedic as he overreacts to one unrecognizable wrinkle on his face in an over-the-top manner. He also had anyone who dare stand up to him executed in a flamboyant stage show.

      Early Life

      Long before the events of the movie, King Poseidon became the king of the lost city of Atlantic City. He became extremely focused on his looks in his rise to power and used the slime from sea snails to make the wrinkles on his face go away. When the royal snail ran out of slime, he would discard it and send it down a chute to a snail dungeon, which they would be enslaved.

      The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run

      King Poseidon is first seen admiring his looks and talking about them to his Chancellor. Suddenly Poseidon notices a wrinkle on his face and requests his royal snail so he can use the slime to get rid of the wrinkle. He puts the snail on his face and learns the snail is out of slime. He sends the snail to the dungeon and orders the Chancellor to bring him another snail at once. The Chancellor then informs him the snail population has been depleted. Poseidon then has the Chancellor write a decree for a boon for whoever brings him a snail. The Chancellor sends the decree to Bikini Bottom where it catches the attention of Plankton, who has once again failed to steal the Krabby Patty formula because of SpongeBob. Plankton knows SpongeBob has a snail named Gary, and he helps Poseidon kidnap Gary so Poseidon can use his slime and Plankton can finally steal the formula without SpongeBob getting in the way. After SpongeBob returns to his house and discovers Gary has taken by Poseidon, he and Patrick head over to rescue him.

      On the road to Atlantic City, SpongeBob and Patrick watch Poseidon use Gary on his face through the Mirror of Meanwhile.

      When SpongeBob and Patrick finally arrive at Poseidon's lounge in Atlantic City, Poseidon thinks they are an act in his show and asks them to perform something. They quickly start singing a song together but suddenly SpongeBob spots Gary near Poseidon and rushes over to him. SpongeBob tells Poseidon that there's been a mistake about Poseidon disagrees and the two of them get into a tug-o war fight over Gary. Poseidon pulls Gary away from SpongeBob and has him and Patrick locked in his dungeon to await trail. Meanwhile back in Bikini Bottom, Sandy, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Plankton hear that SpongeBob and Patrick have been arrested and are to be executed, Sandy and Mr. Krabs agree to save them. Plankton comes along feeling guilty about having gotten SpongeBob into this mess and Squidward comes along to see Kelpy G perform. The gang quickly drives to Atlantic City in a sandwich car.

      Poseidon is later seen over seeing the trail of SpongeBob and Patrick with Gary at his side. Luckily Sandy, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Plankton arrive just in time to save the day. When Sandy asks Poseidon to let her and the others hear some nice things about SpongeBob, he agrees to let them proceed. Sandy, Patrick, Squidward and Mr. Krabs all share some nice stories about how SpongeBob changed their lives, making SpongeBob so happy. Then thinking quickly, the whole gang performs a musical number for Poseidon and quickly up to his booth and take Gary from him and run away.

      Realizing the trick that has been played on, Poseidon orders his guards to hunt down SpongeBob, Gary and their friends. After a long chase, Poseidon and his guards have the gang surrounded outside. Poseidon then applauses their musical performance and agrees to let the gang go on the condition that SpongeBob returns Gary to him. But SpongeBob refuses, saying he loves Gary too much. SpongeBob then gives praise to his friends for all they did to help him get Gary back, such as defying Poseidon and humiliating him in front of his subjects. Angered, Poseidon raises his trident and prepares to zap SpongeBob and his friends with it. But before he does, SpongeBob says Poseidon would understand if he had such great friends like them. Poseidon gets confused then lowers his weapon and tosses it aside, saying he has all sorts of friends. Poseidon asks the Chancellor for his friend count and to his shock he has zero friends despite being so popular, he's always been so selfish and self dramatic all the time over the little things.

      Devastated over the fact that he has had no friends all this time, Poseidon starts crying violently. Taking pity on him, SpongeBob offers to be Poseidon's friend, providing he lets him have Gary back, telling him that friends don't steal from each other. But Poseidon says he needs Gary to rid of his wrinkles. SpongeBob tells him that looks don't matter. Inspired and overjoyed, Poseidon strips down to his true form, giving up his vanity and having a change of heart, He then allows SpongeBob to have Gary and has all the snails set free.
