"A creature created from all the tears in reality, capable of consuming time and space itself. A creature... you both know."
He Who Remains and Loki[src]

Alioth is a trans-temporal entity that serves as the guardian of the Void. Alioth was created during the Multiversal War, where Nathaniel Richards harnessed and experimented on its power, becoming its master. Under the moniker of He Who Remains, Richards weaponized Alioth and used him to end the war with his Variants, including Kang the Conqueror. After the war, Alioth served as the gatekeeper of the Citadel at the End of Time and consumed any individuals the Time Variance Authority sent to the Void.


Multiversal War

"I harnessed the beast's power and began experimenting on it. I weaponized Alioth and I ended... I ended the Multiversal War."
He Who Remains to Loki[src]

Alioth was created by the rifts in time and space created by the Variants of Nathaniel Richards during the Multiversal War. After Alioth's existence was discovered, He Who Remains started to harness and experiment on the creature's power. In the process, He Who Remains became Alioth's master and used the creature's power to help him in ending the Multiversal War.[2]

Guarding the Void

"This is the place where the TVA dumps its rubbish, everything they prune. And Alioth, he ensures none of it ever returns."
"It's a living tempest that consumes matter and energy."
Kid Loki and Boastful Loki[src]

After He Who Remains created the Time Variance Authority and set up residence at the Citadel at the End of Time, Alioth was tasked with guarding him in the Void. When the TVA pruned anyone into the Void, Alioth would try and consume them, killing anything living and stripping anything else bare. The likes of Classic Loki, Kid Loki, Boastful Loki, and Alligator Loki knew to be wary of Alioth, and were able to evade it for many years. Other entities were also able to endure the existence of Alioth, but Classic Loki would summarize the experience as being in a shark tank, with Alioth as the shark.

When Loki was pruned by the TVA, he ended up in the void, and caught a glimpse of Alioth upon his arrival, being informed of the creature by the other Loki Variants. Loki sought to kill Alioth, as it was a living thing. Later, when Sylvie pruned herself, she too came into contact with the monster, and during her flight, caught a glimpse of the Citadel. Alioth pursued her, though she escaped with the help of Mobius M. Mobius, arriving in a car. Sylvie believed she would be able to enchant Alioth, and in doing so, gain access to the Citadel and the being behind the TVA.

When the battleship, USS Eldridge arrived in the Void, having just been pruned by the TVA, Alioth was upon it in an instant. The Ship fired on him, though the living storm was completely unaffected, and went about swiftly killing the crew, before stripping the entire vessel bare, leaving an empty husk, before moving off. This was observed by the Loki Variants.

Later, the Loki Variants and Mobius overlooked Alioth, and following their separation, Loki and Sylvie set off towards it, with the goal of enchanting the beast. Alioth headed for Sylvie despite an attempted distraction from Loki, but was drawn away from her by the actions of Classic Loki, who had formed a gigantic illusion of Asgard. Alioth was tricked, seeing it as a newly pruned meal, and was enraged upon realizing the illusion. Alioth bore down on Classic Loki, who accepted his fate as the beast consumed him, leaving only a charred helmet behind. Alioth then turned on Loki and Sylvie, only for their enchantment to work, dispersing Alioth and giving them access to the Citadel. The pair then journeyed to the Citadel, coming face to face with Alioth's master, He Who Remains.[1]


Sylvie Laufeydottir describes Alioth as an unthinking beast, a servant to its master. Its only goal is to consume. Like any predator, however, it goes after the largest meal nearby, the result being it can be lured into going after a bigger meal (an illusion of an entire city distracted it from eating only two people).


  • Omni-Absorption: Alioth is capable of consuming all of the matter and energy from an entire timeline or universe, and totally destroying it, a feat which is beyond even the capabilities of the Time Variance Authority itself.





  • "Alioth" is pronounced "Al-eye-oth", rhymes with "Goliath".
  • In the comics, Alioth is the first being who broke free from the constrains of time and his empire is larger than that of Kang the Conqueror.
