Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
Mortal Kombat X (Cameo)
Argus is the most powerful of the Edenian Gods. He was married to a sorceress named Delia and they two sons named Taven and Daegon. Due to visions of a future apocalypse caused by the growing number of fighters spawned from the Mortal Kombat tournament, as seen by his wife Delia, he was assigned by the Elder Gods to come up with a solution to prevent this from happening. Argus planned to destroy the kombatants to prevent Armageddon, but Delia protested to this, pointing out that "some were heroes, undeserving of death". He came up with a solution to prevent Armageddon: a contest between his sons, Taven and Daegon.
They would race each other to the top of his pyramid and defeat the firespawn of his wife's creation, Blaze, with the mystical weapons and suits of armor that he and Delia had given them to find. With Blaze's defeat, depending on which one of the brothers defeated him, not only would they gain full godhood and replace Argus as Protector of Edenia, but the excess energies from Blaze would be absorbed by their armor and either kill or nullify the special powers of the other kombatants, preventing their fighting from tearing the realms apart. Argus created several obelisks for his sons to train in on their journeys, where he and Delia had left their images in.
When Daegon was awakened, he was tricked by Shinnok into thinking that his parents were aiding his brother. Upon learing that, Daegon attacked his parents. Argus was killed by Daegon, who cut his head off.
