Hoy there, little Hades! You recognize your uncle, do you not? We've a lot of catching up to do, but first things first, you get yourself out of that dour Underworld! As for me, I'll see if I can stir things up a bit to cover your advance!
~ Poseidon

Poseidon is the god of the sea. He offers boons to Zagreus that significantly increase the damage of his abilities, as well as cause his abilities to inflict Knockback.

Poseidon boons offers the 3rd highest raw percentage damage increase in Hades, as well as the ability to knock enemies around, dealing extra wall slam or trap damage.

Poseidon boons are among the only to offer Artifact currencies and increase their rate of acquisition. Only Dionysus shares this trait.

Poseidon's Cast boon, Flood Shot, is a frequent prerequisite for Duo Boons, making it a notable choice for those that are prioritizing their Cast.

His signature Status Curse is Ruptured, which rapidly deals damage to enemies as they move. Ruptured not only affects an enemy's movement, but also affects the movement from various other Knockback effects.

Poseidon is one of five Olympian gods (the other four being Demeter, Zeus, Hermes and Aphrodite) who will not appear in the very first run of a save.

Affinity[]

If given Nectar, Poseidon will give you the Conch Shell.

Poseidon's affinity gauge is maxed out at 7 hearts.

Favor[]

Poseidon's favor requires using the Rod of Fishing and successfully fishing up a minimum of 18 fish, and having caught at least 1 fish for that run prior to encountering Poseidon. [1]

Codex entry[]

Codex.png
'...The Master of the Seas, the Earthshaker, Brother to Lord Hades and Lord Zeus... the Lord Poseidon. I am ever grateful that, while I was living, he was merciful to me. Down here, however, I must say I rarely feel his influence. All of us... we are beneath him, now. How many of my brethren did he drown during my mortal days? He comes across as affable, yet I've not forgiven him. Lord Hades seems to have no love for him, either, equating him to Zeus, and shunning both alike. It's all a business best avoided by my estimation.'

Mechanics[]

Many of Poseidon's boons apply Knockback to your abilities. Knockback causes an ability to push an enemy an additional distance away from Zagreus, in the direction they were attacked from. Knockback effects can help enable environmental damage from Wall Slams and Traps. Knockback effects also combo well with Poseidon's Status Curse, Ruptured, which deals damage to enemies when they move. Area bosses have immunity against Knockback, but will be affected by Rupture damage.
