Duo Boons are a type of Boon which combines the powers of two different gods for a unique effect. Duo Boons can only be obtained when you have the prerequisite boons and, like all boons, are lost when Zagreus dies and returns to the House of Hades.

There are 28 Duo Boons in Hades, shared between 8 different gods: Aphrodite, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Dionysus, Demeter, Poseidon, and Zeus. Neither Hermes nor Chaos will offer Duo Boons. Every god that may have Duo boons shares one with each other god.

The chances for Duo Boons can be increased with specific gods' Keepsakes, Eurydice's Refreshing Nectar, Well of Charon item Yarn of Ariadne, and the Mirror of Night talent Gods' Legacy.

Acquiring all Duo Boons awards 15 Ambrosia from the Fated List of Minor Prophecies.

  • Note that when using certain Weapon Aspects, prerequisite boons may have different names. Example: Aspect of Beowulf: Flood Shot -> Flood Flare
