The Underworld Army (冥府軍 Meifu-gun, "Netherworld Army"), formerly known as Medusa's Army, is one of the primary factions, as well as the main antagonistic group, of the Kid Icarus series. Ruled by Hades, they seek destruction in order to provide their leader with souls.
Hades supplies the army with troops by converting souls into monsters; any souls that are not used for this purpose are reincarnated, consumed, or simply fade away.
