Name Basis

Cerberus is named for the three-headed hound that guards the gates of Hades in Greek mythology.


Cerberus is a pyromaniac who loves nothing more than to set things aflame. She also has a short attention span and tends to burn the nearest thing when bored.

Abilities in Battle

Cerberus prefers Fire type attacks, naturally, but can use other types if needed. She is mainly a special attacker.

Mezzo started her Gym Challenge in Unova by challenging her hometown's Gym Leader, Burgh, with only Felis. This was a complete defeat for Mezzo, so she resolved to find some Dark type Pokémon more effective against Bug types. To do this, she took a subway train to Opelucid City, and in the area around there caught Cerberus, Muramasa, and Dreadwing. Cerberus was caught from a pack traveling in Route 9 at the time.


  • Set a sector of the Johto Safari Zone on fire at one point.
  • In the AU, she led the attack on Undella Town along with Muramasa, Mezzo, and Felis. She caused a lasting burn to Die before she went down.


Pianis dislikes Cerberus, due to an incident involving her at the Snowpoint Gym where Yukikaze was nearly melted. Yukikaze is afraid of Cerberus for the same reason.

Morrigan likes Cerberus, and is attempting to curb her pyromania somewhat.

In the AU

Cerberus was a lieutenant in the Black Guard. She was killed by Die in the attack on Undella Town.
