Villain Overview
Hold on, I just got an excellent idea; Because I'm generous, I'll bury you with your mother. Go on! You may thank me, I've been more than merciful it's only polite! HAHAHAHAHA!
~ Zalgo mocking Slenderman after admitting to killing his mother.
I hope you appreciate, Slenderman, that everything that happens from this point is on your head. The stars will rain fire, the cosmos will boil, the planets will run red with the blood of trillions. Only then, after your last pitiful hope is extinguished, will I end your life.
~ Zalgo after obtaining multiversal power.

Z̘̠̟̮̘̹̣a̸̰͉̗̹̟͙'̴̠̭̼͇̰̗̬l̗g͏̻͔̪̮a̧͚̰t͓͕́oth̵̭̬̱̥ or most commonly Zalgo, is the primary antagonist of the web-comic series Pastamonsters. He is the supreme ruler of The Pit (The Dark World's Hell). He is also Slenderman's "not so loving" father. He is a malevolent and mysterious entity of chaos and evil that lives in a palace of tortured souls known as the Pit, served by legions of monsters forged from the tears of the undead, and each one clad in armor carved from the concentrated suffering of grieving mothers. He also is said to live within all mankind, waiting for the thin glass wall within them to crack, so that he may take over. His real name is Z'algatoth and he has a cult of followers who wish to bring about his coming.


Zalgo was a monster, a pure evil, sadistic, all-powerful, nightmarish, demented monster... and all of his victims, including my mother, father, sister and possibly grandparents, are just his little toys, and The Pit is the very gateway into his chaotic, nightmarish world and the very Hell his victims are trapped in. All these eons, I have seen so many people fall victim to Zalgo, kind and decent people. All I have left are memories.
~ Jeff 2# telling the main universe's Proxies of Zalgo's evil

Zalgo is evil incarnate; he embodies the very essence of a satanic overlord. He has ruled the Pit for well over a 10 eons and does not take kindly to disobedience. Zalgo is responsible for countless genocides,with planets, towns, villages, and small settlements being completely destroyed, alongside all their inhabitants, while nature itself is left to rot or decimated to make room for Zalgo's strongholds. It is likely that religions are also affected, given Zalgo's loathing towards all that are good and sacred. While Zalgo has recreated numerous planets into his own image, he is often just as satisfied with leaving entire areas barren wastelands, seeing the carnage as reminders of his power to the general populace. Atrocities are a daily occurrence since Zalgo's rule, as he welcomes demonic henchmen from across the universe and provides them with areas that are still fully occupied, entrusting the new arrivals to wipe the populaces from any planets.

Zalgo murders his men out of irritation and aggravation but despite the constant annoyance from his royal advisor, the Shadowlurker, Zalgo has never shown any desire to kill him (though he has killed him on one occasion, only to revive him to make him suffer longer). Aside from this, Zalgo views Shadowlurker as disposable, looking down on him with contempt and regularly tortures him for minor infractions.

Despite his vast knowledge of the multiverse and all its inhabitants, he actually seems confused by the concept of human morality. However, this might be subverted with one simple fact: Zalgo is a sadist. Zalgo is shown at various times to fully comprehend human morality to the fullest and knows exactly how to manipulate them, and Zalgo knows full and well he's absolutely wicked and cruel (in fact, he's quite proud of it). He demonstrates this in front of Shadowlurker, but the sticking point is that Slenderman after Zalgo reveals what he plans to do to the multiverse to endear himself to Slenderman, calls him insane. Zalgo's reaction? “Being sane is boring!” Coupled with the fact Zalgo clearly gets a kick out of delivering pain into living beings and one cannot solidly dismiss Zalgo's actions completely under Blue and Orange Morality, because he clearly understands humans and he knows understands the beings he's tormenting are in agony but refuses to relent because their suffering amuses him. Honestly, Zalgo is less an Eldritch Abomination and more Satan; he's insane, manipulative, and very openly sadistic and the true nature of Zalgo's species/being is too vague to really call these natural parts of his morality. His inability to understand why Lara enjoys helping people can get along is way more along the lines of Evil Cannot Comprehend Good, and ultimately, Zalgo's little more than a complete and utter psychopath who openly acknowledges and takes pride in this fact.

In addition to this, Zalgo seems to understand humans enough to manipulate them into one-sided deals. He has made deals with billions of people, and all of them have ended in the dealer suffering a horrible fate. For example, Alice Liddel made a deal with Zalgo - in return for a way out of Wonderland and returning home to her family, she would have the sacrifice one of her family members. When she refused to give up her father's soul (which, of course, he knew would happen), Zalgo cursed her with immortality and forced her to live in a twisted version of Wonderland (now dubbed Underland) for the rest of her life, never able to join her family on Earth again.

Most likely due to being born in riches and privilege, Zalgo has a distaste towards the poor and middle-class, giving them the worst torture out of all his victim's. He has called the Proxies "plebians" on many occasions, which is a slur towards the lower-class.

In the two-part special "Tales of the Dark World" a few scenes are told through Zalgo's perspective. He claims himself to be superior to other Dark World creatures, with others (mainly Proxies) are "inferior", with Slenderman being the only being who matches his power. Even then, he views Slenderman as "fat, stupid and lazy" due to Slenderman constantly being in his mansion, admiring himself, a hypocritical statement, considering Zalgo almost never leaves the Pit and admires himself also.

In "Legends of the Multiverse", he seems to have lost the deep echo in his voice. Due to Slenderman and the Proxies hindering his omniversal conquest and generally foiling his plans, Zalgo's mental state became increasingly unstable, as he would often lose his cool, overreact, and lack common sense, causing him to lean slightly towards his more insane, comedic like his pre-production counterpart, where once before he would have killed whoever displeased him, in this state of annoyance he instead got annoyed that Enderman's crew had disrespected him in his lair.

Despite this, Zalgo's sadistic and serious tendencies appear to be largely intact, as he appeared to be quite pleased with himself after incinerating over a thousand universes, and making jokes about all the woman, men, and children he slaughtered while doing so. Additionally, he showed sadistic glee when murdering Slenderman and destroying the very fabric of reality.

Powers and Abilities

Despite not being quite as powerful as Slenderman, Zalgo is still one of the most powerful demons to ever live and is still not without his powers.

  • Super-Strength:  Zalgo is shown to be very physically strong, as he is able to pick up and toss an entire planet with little effort.
  • Shape-Shifting:  Zalgo can immediately transform itself into any kind of being, regardless of the size or nature of the form. Zalgo took the form of a giant plastic statue, several small life entities, flying leeches, a cat, a human, and Isaac during his battle with the Proxies. Between shapeshifting, Zalgo is an orange amorphous lava-like goo, which is somewhat close to his true form. Some may disagree, however, saying that the most common avatar is the closest to its true form. Others may argue that the crucified Jesus form is its true form. This is untrue, however, the Jesus form is only Zalgo's original form.
  • Telekinesis: Zalgo was very proficient in Telekinesis, utilizing it either as an offensive attack or simply as a means of displaying his power, the latter being most prevalent when he used the ability to fling henchmen across his throne room while barely raising a finger. Zalgo's telekinesis was so powerful, he could manipulate the very sky and weather, causing storms, tornadoes and lightning to strike whoever he wanted.
  • Sonic Scream: Zalgo can produce very powerful and demonic screams powerful enough to cause space-quakes and deafen people.
  • Agelessness:  A significant aspect of the series is that Zalgo is ageless and immortal. He requires no sustenance, and cannot be harmed by mortal methods. Only the power of mystical sources like Aton's magic, Slenderman, or divine entities are capable of hurting him and bring about his destruction. He also can bestow this ability as a curse as he once did to the Mr. Widemouth so that he will be imprisoned for eternity and unable to join his friends and family in the afterlife.
  • Teleporting: Zalgo can teleport from any location without losing energy. Although a useful and pragmatic ability, Zalgo doesn't exploit it too much.
  • Limb Detachment:  Zalgo can detach his limbs, organs, body parts, and even his head for any reason.
  • Pyrokinetic Abilities/Immunity:  Zalgo was born within the fires of the Pit, thus he is capable of manipulating, bathing in, and producing flames and lava alike. He was capable of incinerating entire civilizations with just a touch of his claw. He also produced enough lava to flood an entire planet. Zalgo can use his powers to perform a wide variety of techniques, such as the rapid creation of flame henchman, spikes, and walls. He can use his magic to propel himself across a flame surface. Zalgo also displayed the ability create flame demons and imbue them with life, enabling them to move of their own accord. This ability can manifest itself consciously, as was the case with his demonic henchmen. When Zalgo's fire struck people, it passes through the heart with magic and instantly melts the person to death. Zalgo also is clearly not bothered by the heat, preferring most of his homes be in hellish wastelands and fiery dimensions like the Pit; he was seen casually living in his fiery hell known as the Pit without exhibiting any signs of discomfort. And as many souls would burn and suffer the unbearable heat, Zalgo remained casual and unharmed, a further indication of Zalgo's affinity to the heat.
  • Creation: Zalgo can create monsters of any shape or size, from lizards to hydras. This also applies to objects like money, furniture and weaponry.
  • Poisonous Breath: Zalgo is capable of emitting poisonous vapors from his mouth.
  • Reality-Warping:To the point where he turned a planet into a giant gold coin. He was also the one that turned Wonderland into the twisted wasteland it is now. "Legends of the Multiverse" has him using this power to a much more pragmatically. He turns Slenderman's projectile attacks into stuffed animals, turns an entire army into stone statues, turns half of the New Elite into banners, turns Smile Dog into a chew toy, Bush into a wooden decoy duck, and turns Speedy into a fish.
  • Flight/Interstellar Travel: Zalgo is capable of flying both in air and in space at amazing speeds well beyond the speed of light.
    • Levitation: Zalgo can "fly" several feet off the ground and slowly descend back to the ground with ease. And while doing this he can dash upward and he will gain altitude quickly (therefore making his flight ability superior to that of Slenderman's) before descending.
  • Enhanced Hearing: Zalgo is able to hear what Jeff and his friends while inside space, which is physically impossible considering sound cannot travel through space.
  • Immunity: Zalgo can survive almost impossible punishment, such as being thrown into the sun, getting cut in half and impaled through the head. He also cannot be harmed by any weapon that is of Earth (anything made by humans). According to Mr. Widemouth, nothing short of demi-god power can harm Zalgo.
  • Brainwashing/Hypnosis/Corruption: Zalgo has the power of brainwashing several minds simultaneously. This also suggests that Zalgo has the ability to erase particular things from a person's memory or knowledge. Generally, it appears that the weaker willed citizens and visitors succumb to Zalgo's powerful mind control. This ability presumably has no effect on Slenderman or his Proxies.
  • Phasing: Zalgo can phase through solid objects with ease. This ability also applies to other beings and their attacks, allowing them and their magical blasts or weapons to harmlessly pass through Zalgo's body.
  • Transmutation: Zalgo is capable of turning beings into inanimate objects. He has turned President Bush into a wooden duck decoy, Laughing Jack into a stone statue, and Mayor Bigmouth into a slug.
  • Healing/Regeneration: Zalgo can heal himself from any given injury. His healing factor allows him to heal from a single cell or drop of blood, making him almost imossible to kill. However, divine power and objects are capable of nullifying his healing factor, rendering him unable to heal.
  • Water Manipulation: Zalgo's powers extend to the manipulation of weather, as he was able to generate a blizzard with powerful gusts of wind powerful enough to freeze one's skin. He also caused a solar storm merely because he was in a bad mood.
  • Earth Manipulation: Zalgo can cause earthquakes, move mountains and even shift a planet's tectonic plates using telekinesis.
  • Gravity Manipulation: Zalgo has the ability to turn off gravity around him to where it only affects those around him.
  • Ressurection: As long as Zalgo is killed in the Dark World, he can simply resurrect himself and carry on as if nothing had happened.
  • Dream Manipulation: Zalgo is capable of entering people's dreams and warping them to his liking.
  • Matter Manipulation: Zalgo is capable of controlling matter, being able to remove the atoms in organic beings and re-shape them into another for, or even remove them reality.
  • Necromancy: Zalgo is capable of resurrecting the dead and bending them to do his bidding.
  • Blood Manipulation: Zalgo can control the blood in people's bodies.
  • Cursing: Zalgo is capable of putting curses on people, landscapes, and worlds.
  • Elasticity: Zalgo can stretch and extend his limbs.
  • Light Manipulation: Zalgo is capable of emitting a powerful light towards enemies that is capable of blinding them.
  • Power Bestowment: Zalgo has the power to grant other beings power as well, both as a curse or a gift. This was shown when he gave Mr. Widemouth and Alice Liddel immortality in order to prolong their suffering.

Despite his omnipotent powers and immunity, Zalgo does have a few weaknesses. 

  • Divine Power: Other god-like beings, such as Slenderman and Alton, can easily kill and harm him.
  • Silver: He can easily be harmed by objects made of pure silver.
  • BEN's Black Stuff: BEN's Black Stuff is capable of melting Zalgo's skin on contact and even capable of nullifying his healing factor.
  • Bravery and Courage: If his opponent is not afraid of him, he is slightly weaker against them. The Proxies exploited this weakness in their battle with Zalgo in "Legends of the Multiverse".
  • Arrogance: Although he is undeniably one of the most powerful characters in the entire series, he underestimates everyone else. He constantly and publicly belittles his loyal minions while showing everyone else less respect than even that. He is so sure of his victory and minion's loyalty, and so confident in the belief that his immensely strong demonic abilities render him essentially untouchable, that he is utterly blindsided and left puzzled when his henchmen disobey him or his enemies gain the upper hand.

~ Zalgo's secret message ib the Season One intro
Zalgo:Oh, oh, Under Realm, it is good to be back! Name's Lord Zalgo and I take it you're some kind of living Lincoln Log? (laughs) Just kidding, I don't know who you are, Enderman.
Enderman: W-what are you? H-how do you know my name? ZalgoOh, I know lots of things! (*voice changes*) Lots of things
~ Zalgo's first lines in the entire series.
Mercy is for the weak!
~ Zalgo's motto
For eons I have terrorized this land. Every miserable creature trembled at the mere mention of my name. The pitiful mortals fright before my astounding power. But now, I am openly mocked by these measly urchins. Tales of Aton's heroics have spread through the multiverse like a virus, but I will cure the multiverse of this plague of hope. I will unleash such evil that even the most innocent soul will be consumed by terror!
~ Zalgo's speech to his army.
As far as the eye can see, the land is deoslute and full of despair. Shadows crawl across the Pit and block out the light. Darkness oozes from every crevice. Hope has been eradicated. Only terror reigns. Yet, there is one that mocks my omnipresent evil with his existence. He possesses a sword which could destroy me. They call him... Aton!
~ Zalgo to a young Slenderman.
I call it my Magnum Opus. It is my purpose... and now it is yours as well. It's beautiful. Over thousands of years... I traveled across the cosmos, studying to little skin puppets known as mortals. Spoiler alert: Mortal life is booooooring! I needed to spice up their lives and to do that I needed to unleash my friends upon theme to show them a good time. I need to fulfill life's one true purpose... To grow and spread... covering all that exists... until everything is... Me! I only had one problem: Aton. I hate to admit it but even I am no match for that fat idiot. One single divine being cannot stop Aton. But two divine beings... Well, now, that just might do. Out of all my labors... the most beguiling was... attempting to graft my divine genes with that of another species. I hoped the result of such a coupling would be enough... to help me conquer the multiverse. I had your uncles, Sexual Offenderman, deliver some of them to me. It broke his moral code, but I compensated him generously... and to ease his conscience, I said I'd never hurt them. But one after the other, they failed me. Not one of them carried the godly genes. Until you, Slenderman. Out of all my spawn... only you carried the connection to the light. For the first time in my existence... I am truly not alone!
~ Zalgo revealing his plans to Slenderman.
Such fragile creatures you are.
~ Zalgo slaughtering and taunting villagers.
Hahahahaha!! You kids are adorable. Now turn around and I might let you live.
~ Zalgo taunting BEN and Sally.
Well, son, are you having second thoughts about challenging a superior warrior to battle?! I CANNOT BE DEFEATED! NOT BY YOU OR ANYONE!
~ Zalgo during his fight with Slender Man.
You are one of my most powerful Minions. You possess the ability to steal the essence of the mightiest of warriors or the deadliest of beasts. You have never failed me.
~ Zalgo brainwashing the Shadowlurker.

Part Two

You worthless slime! I'll have you for dinner, you worm! I'll eat every last mortal in this world, I'll devour you all just as I had all the others! HA!! HA!! HA!! HA!! HA!! HA!!
~ Zalgo as he takes control of Slenderman.
Foolish, unknowing, innocent little Proxies. Little do you know that the path l have chosen for you will lead you to your doom! HAAAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
~ Zalgo tricking the Proxies.
Enderman: Do you have them where we want them?
Zalgo: (in hologram form) Of course! Those silly Proxies get stupider everyday.
Enderman: Excellent. I just hope you don't screw up like you did last time.
Zalgo: Relax, Blocky Boy. Also, I don't quite like your tone. (Snaps fingers; Enderman is levitated in the air and dropped into a pool)
Zalgo: HA! HA! HA! HA! Alright, but as long as you remember who the true master is! Now run along, worm. I have better things to do than play with my toys. HA! HA! HAAAA!!
~ Zalgo asserting his dominance over Enderman.
Come now. I can't have you giving up after such a glancing blow. No, I'm afraid your torment is only just beginning. There are so many horrors I have yet to show you.
~ Zalgo during his fight with Jeff.
How's that? Are you beginning to regret you're foolish decision to the defy me? Or shall I remind you of your place, you worthless, inferior insect?!
~ Zalgo taunting Jeff
With me, you would live like a god. Yes, you could have anything. Or not, you could choose to suffer and die.
~ Zalgo trying to persuade Jeff and Ben to join him in his efforts.
It seems you were born from your mothers side. Foolish, uppity, bordering on pathological. You don't stand a chance against me, boy.
~ Zalgo before fighting Slenderman.
Do your worst, inferior one!
~ Zalgo before his defeat in "To Proxy Mountain.
You can no longer deny it, Eyeless Jack is now nothing more than a toy at my disposal. As of now l, you, your friends and he, belong to ME."
~ Zalgo taunting Laughing Jack.
You will suffer and die by my hands. I wonder what look Slenderman will have on his face when he finds out one of his best students died suffering. (Laughs) It's fun to even imagine that! (Begins to torture Laughing Jack with lightning) What will you do now? If you don't hurry and run away I will kill you. (continues shocking him as he screams in pain) Did that hurt? Are you in pain? But you see, my resentment for Slenderman is too much to be satisfied with just this. Now, why don't you try to run away? (Jack falls to the ground screaming in agony) What's that? Can't run anymore? Come on now, Slenderman wouldn't give up so easily. (Continues torturing Jack) It's a big mistake if you think you're allowed to stand in front of me! (Electrocutes Jack as he is on the ground) Can't move anymore? If so why don't you plead for your life? Say what you want me to help you. (Jack writhes in a pool of tears) Cry.. Better yet, cry while screaming! Look at me and ask me to spare your life! (Laughs) Even if you do, I won't spare you! I will kill you, a Proxy, by my own hands. Serves you right, insect. serves the right, Proxy. Serves you right, Slenderman!
~ Zalgo torturing Laughing Jack
Don't cry, girl. The lord of all evil is taking time from the schedule to kill you. You should feel honored.
~ Zalgo before attempting to kill Sally
When you destroy a planet you forget about all the little things. The pretty birds tweeting, the children playing their little games, hundreds going about their day... HAHAHAHAAA! I just love my job!
~ Zalgo while showing off his collection.
Name's Zalgo! And your name's Jeffery Woods, the man who killed his family, but I'm getting ahead of ourselves; let's relax! Care for a game of interdimensional chess? Have a cup of tea.
~ Zalgo pretending to be nice to Jeff
Look, Joker, I know we've had our problems in the past, but seems an ancient artifact that can defeat me is out there and I need your generous assistance getting him back. (Jeff: Yeah? Well, why should I give a fuck? All you've done is trying to kill me and my friends.) (Zalgo laughs) I hear you! Now, what's in it for you? Well, as soon as I dispose of that little crystal, I'll give you your family back? (Jeff: Bullshit!) No, seriously. I have their souls in the Pit! Help me destroy that crystal and you can get all the family time your little dark heart desires. Now.. do we have ourselves a deal?
~ Zalgo making a deal with Jeff.
(Jeff: What have you done?) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Yes, Jeffery. You have been betrayed. That wasn't the crystal you destroyed, it was your family's souls! I destroyed that silly thing eons ago! You see Jeff, you may think this is cruelty, but this is actually a lesson; No matter how hard you try, you will always be alone! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Fool! (Jeff: We made a dead you fucking cocksucker!) Actually, if you remember correctly, our deal was at best implied, and even then (points to himself) bad guy! (Jeff: Fight me, YOU FUCKING RETARD!) Soon enough, Jeffery, but not until I find a way to defeat you and Slenderman. Now, how did you put it? Oh, yes. Your time on this miserable Zalgo-infested land continues. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
~ Zalgo deceives Jeff.
Masky: Uh, what crazy thing do you want anyway? To eat my soul? To rip out my teeth? Are you gonna replace my eyes with baby heads or something?
Zalgo:Yeesh, kid, relax. All I want is a puppet!
Masky: A puppet? What are you playing at?
Zalgo Everyone loves puppets. And it looks to me that you've got a surplus.
~ Zalgo making a deal with Masky.
Seems to me one little puppet is a small price to pay to learn all the secrets of the universe. Besides, what have your friends done for you, lately? How many times have you sacrificed for them, huh? And when have they ever returned the favor? Tick tock, mortal.
~ Zalgo manipulating Masky
Masky: So which puppet are you going to pick?
Zalgo:Hmm, let's see... eenie... meanie.. miney... YOU.
~ Zalgo preparing to possess Masky.
You humans never fail to slink back down a couple rungs on that evolutionary ladder. All your advances in medicine, science, exploring space, all your good will - just when you think you've got it all together - you revert and devolve into the animals that you are.
~ Zalgo after tricking Masky.
Man, it has been so long since I've inhabited a body. (slaps himself in the face) Woo! (slaps the other cheek) Woo! How the hell did all this skin get on my arm? (rips the skin on his left arm off) Haha! Pain is hilarious!! And a beating heart? Lungs? A NOSE?! This thing's deluxe!
~ Zalgo after taking Masky's body.
Aw, nothing like the theater, huh toots? Hey Jeff, wanna hear the exact time and date of your death?
~ Zalgo (in Masky's body) taunting Jeff, BEN, and Masky.
Ah! What is this feeling? (Wheezing) My body is burning! I can't move these stupid noodle legs! Curse you, useless flesh sticks! Body...shutting down... must...scratch... mosquito bites... Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa.. hey!
~ Zalgo beginning to feel the effects and weaknesses of being a mortal.
You can't defeat me! Big things are coming! I'm a being of pure energy with no weakness! I'LL BE BACK!!!
~ Zalgo after being exorcised out of Masky's body by Hoodie.
Note to self: Possessing people is hilarious! To think of all the sensations I've been missing out on- burning, stabbing, drowning. It's like a buffet tray of fun! Once I unleash the Pit upon the mortal worms, I'll enjoy giving this body the grand finale- by throwing it in the Under Realm's acid pits! Best of all, people will just think Masky lost his mind, and his mental form will just wander in the Pit forever. Want to join him, Zelda?
~ Note left by Zalgo and discovered by BEN after Zalgo possessed Masky, revealing Zalgo's plans to kill Masky and make it look like a suicide.

Part Three

HAAAAHAHAHAHAAA!!! FOOOOL! You were so blinded by your quest to find your WORTHLESS family that you couldn't see the truth right in front of your face!
~ Zalgo (in disguise) mocking Alice Liddell for falling for his trap.
Zalgo: Well, well, well, well, well, well, well, well, well, well, well! Aren't you a sight for sore eye! Alice Liddell, my have you grown!
Alice: YOU MONSTER!! (she tries to attack Zalgo but he immobilizes her in a magic beam)
Zalgo:Woah, don't have a heart attack, you're not 92 yet.
~ Zalgo after seeing Alice Liddell again.
Alice: Get out of here! You have no dominion in our world!
Zalgo:Maybe not right now, but things change, Little Alice! Things... change.
~ Zalgo to Alice
Thanks Jeffery! I couldn't have done it without you!
~ Zalgo mockingly thanking Jeff for helping him steal the Multiverse Portal.
(Mancala: The hour is near. It's time for my payment.) Payment? For what? You getting me the Multiverse Crystals? Your wiring must be screwed up because if I remember correctly, you did not get them. I did. (Mancala: We had a deal. I held up my part of the bargain.) Well, you shouldn't have made a deal with the devil! It's common knowledge, Tin Man! (laughs) (Mancala throws a magic blast towards Zalgo,only for Zalgo to turn the blast into a stuffed animal)I granted you these powers, and I can take them away, you bucket of bolts. (blasts Mancala out of his castle) Not much of a threat now, are you?
~ Zalgo betrays Mancala
Now can anyone remind me what I was trying to do? (Shadowlurker: To stop the Proxies frome getting the Notebook.) THAT'S RIGHT! Shadowlurker, get me a glass of blood and prepare for an invasion. Oh, and X, you've earned a treat, have the Elite for a snack.
~ Zalgo preparing to invads more planets and sending X to kill the Proxies
Alright, listen up, you one-lifespan, three-dimensional, five-sense skin puppets! For one trillion years I've been trapped in my own decaying dimension, waiting for the time where I could call the multiverse my own. Name's Zalgo. But you can call me your new lord and master for all of eternity! ...Okay. On seconds thought, slaughtering you pathetic worms is the perfect warm-up before the fun really begins!
~ Zalgo arriving to the Battle of the Pit.
Slendy, you have to bring out your best to defeat me, and your best part is ME!!
~ Zalgo before corrupting Slenderman
Everyone, this new multiverse wouldn't be possible if this rat didn't just stay with his friends! Give him a round of applause
~ Zalgo mockingly telling his minions to applaude Mayor Bigmouth.
Ladies, gentlemen, that creature with like 87 different faces. (Creature with 88 different faces: 88 different faces!) Whoa-ho, sorry - touchy subject. Anyways, it's been fun turning this multiverse inside out, rounding up all its terrified inhabitants and then stacking them into this massive throne of frozen mortal agony. Don't worry, they're not conscious anymore. Probably. (Time God: Uh, my omelettes. They-they have friendly faces.) Whoops. Hehe, back, back you go there. But this multiverse is just the beginning. It's time to take our chaos omniversal! Alright boys, to Aton's realm we go. Set the world aflame with your weirdness. This omniverse is ours! Ah, omniversal domination. I could get used to - (the demons hit an invisible shield and fall down) WHAT??!!! Fools! Of course only I have to power to destroy the shields. (Zalgo extends his arm and puts hand around the shield, causing it to melt his arm off) AGHHHHH!!!! (Paci-Fire: I think I broke something.) Walk it off! Hmm, this might be more complicated than I thought.
~ Zalgo, ordering his minions to spreed their evil across the omniverse by invading Aton's realm, only to discover there is a barrier keeping all of them, including himself away from Aton's home.

Part Four

'We'll meet again. Don't know where. Don't know when. Oh, I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.
~ Zalgo singing at Shadowlurker's appreciation party.
Ah, sharp as ever, my thin-skinned advisor. As you may have noticed...I've recently had a (Voice echoing:) multiversal makeover. I control space, matter, and now that that dumb clock's out of the way, time itself! But I wasn't always this way. You think those chains are tight? Imagine torturing the same souls everyday. Sure, it never really stops being funny, eventually, you just get tired of torturing the same damn people every single day. So one day i decided screw it! Why torment the mortals in my Dimension, when I could torment the whole Omniverse? here's just one hitch. As it turns out, my evil can't enter the confines of Aton's realm. There's something keeping me out.
~ Zalgo revealing his motivations for universal conquer in "Legends of the Multiverse Part 5".
Listen, Shadowlurker, once I absorb that dumb gods power, finally the Pit will take over. Anything will be possible. I'll remake a fun world-- a better world- for us, of course. For the mortals it will for 24/7 suffering, torture, murder and death. But for you and all the other demons, it'll be a party that never ends with a host that never dies! No more restrictions! No more laws! You'd be one of us. All-powerful. Greater than anything you've imagined! And all I need is your help.
~ Zalgo to Shaowlurked about the intentions of his plans.
It's always a pleasure to mess with your heads, Proxies.
~ Zalgo taunting the New Elite.
Are you enjoying your new home? That's all that matters in the end.
~ Zalgo to the New Elite.
So the mortals are trying to fight back, huh. Adorable! You! (points at Steppenwolf) How many planets have you destroyed? [Steppenwolf: I lost count up to thirty!] Good enough! (spawns his magic ax) Now you go out there and fuck em' up real good, okay?
~ Zalgo to Steppenwolf, upon the Proxies trying to get into Zalgo's fortress.
Oh no, it's Zalgo! Right? Isn't that what you're all thinking? Hey, Bigmouth, why aren't you dancing? Chop chop, huh
~ Zalgo discovering the heroes in his lair.
Ha ha ha ho! This is just too perfect! Didn't you worthless maggots know the zodiac doesn't work if you don't all hold hands? And what's better, you've brought every threat to my power together in one easy-to-destroy CIRCLE!!! HAHAHA!!! That stupid old Aton really messed up making you guys the Multiverse's only hope.
~ Zalgo to the Proxies and their allies
Oh, don't you mess with me, Teddy Bear. I'm.. All.. Powerfu- (BEN throws a handful of Black Stuff at Zalgo's face, which begins to melt his face off) AAAAH!! DAMN INSECTS!!! ARRGHH!!! WHEN MY FACE REGENERATES I'M GONNA RIP YOU LIMB FROM LIMB!!!
~ Zalgo's rage over BEN throwing Black Stuff at his face.
Not so fast. You two wait here! Shadowlurker, hold down the ship. (Turns into a red and black hydra) I've got some children I need to make into corpses. (Deep voice:) Seeya real soon.
~ Zalgo to Jeff, Smile, and Shadowlurker before chasing Sally Williams and BEN.
~ Zalgo while perusing Sally and BEN across the universe.
ALRIGHT, JEFFERY! I have your best friend in one hand and your surrogate daughter in the other! Have you made up your mind yet? Times ticking...I got the kids! Bah, this is taking too long. I think I'm gonna kill one of them now, just for the hell of it!
~ Zalgo forcing Jeff to give up his energy faster by almost killing BEN and Sally.
HAHAHAHA! Oh, even when you're about to die you mortals can't make up your mind, can you?
~ Zalgo mocking Smile Dog's attempts to save Jeff.
Hold on. If you all let me go, I'll give you anything! Money, fame, infinite power, YOUR OWN UNIVERSE! Have mercy!
~ Zalgo pathetically begging for his life after being brutally beating by the Proxies.
Showlurker! Shadowlurker, help me! ... What are you waiting for you dumb bitch SAVE ME!! (Shadowlurker: That is it! I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU!!! (Sends a blast of energy at Zalgo) No, WAIT!! SHADOWLURKER!!!
~ Zalgo's last words before being obliterated by the Shadowlurker.



  • The mouth on Zalgo's head is used for talking while the ones on his abdomen are used for eating.
  • Towards the end of the Pastamonsters theme song, a whisper can be heard that sounds like "I'm still here." It is heavily implied that the voice is Zalgo warning the viewers of his second coming.
    • Through the first half of season 2, the whisper changes to "Aton is not what he seems".
    • Further evidence that the voice is Zalgo is when the first apocalyptic version of the Pastamonsters plays in the beginning of "Legends of the Multiverse Part 4" is played backwards, a voice that is clearly meant to be Zalgo can be heard saying the words "I'M WATCHING YOU NERDS." The second one has him saying only "HE COMES!" sounding much angrier. The final one says "Good bye, Pastamonsters."
    • In any episode after "Legends of the Multiverse part 4", the whisper is gone, since Zalgo is finally killed in the fourth part of the special.
  • Zalgo was redesigned at least once; xcomickittyx felt that his original design was not scary enough.
  • President Bush and Smile seems to be capable of sensing Zalgo's presence.
  • In Season 1, he was originally a one-shot villain, but with so many cameo appearances and having some connections to Slenderman and the Pastamonsters lore, he became the main villain of the entire series.
  • Zalgo is similar to Aku from Samurai Jack
    • Both are fairly comedic yet threatening villains.
    • Both have similar powers.
    • Both can only be defeated by divine power.
    • Both are demons. 
    • Both live in a hellish lair.
  • Zalgo hates Eyeless Jack the most out of Slenderman's proxies because he is the only one Zalgo has never been able to traumatize.
  • Enderman claims that Zalgo treats his victims better than his henchmen. Nothing we see contradicts this statement.
  • BEN has stated that Zalgo once shook hands with Stalin.
  • He has similar traits with Frieza.
    • Both kill their goons when they fail
    • Both betrayed different groups, Zalgo betrayed the monsters, Frieza betrayed the Saiyans.
  • In the Summoning Gods, Demons, and other Anomalies section of the Pastamonsters Beginners Handbook, the steps to summoning Zalgo are scribbled out with a message to the side that reads "DO NOT SUMMON. ZALGO CANNOT BE TRUSTED!!!".
  • Zalgo also shares similarities with Pepper Satanica from The Margra Batto And Kyra Verbeten spinoff, The Punkettes.
    • Both are Evil, Malevolent Rulers.
    • Both enjoy tormenting their enemies.
    • Both have similar powers.
    • Both are Complete Monsters.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Zalgo cannot be identified as male or female, as he is a being above the concept of gender or race. He also claims his home dimension has 14 billion different gender identities and there is paperwork involved in determining sexual orientation and he's not exactly been keeping track of his.
  • Unlike other members of his race, Zalgo keeps his mental state and can speak, as opposed to simply roaring. This is because he was already extremely violent, murderous, sadistic and insane and his demonic instinct had no effect on his mentality.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Zalgo is not the cause behind the evil in the Under Realm. In fact, it's the evil that attracted Zalgo to the realm.
