Is Zagreus in Hades 2?

Hades 2 is out now in Early Access and one of the many questions players may have is whether Zagreus, the protagonist of the first game and Melinoe's brother, appears in this sequel.

Is Zagreus present in Hades 2?

Yes, Zagreus is somewhat present in Hades 2, but not in the way you think. When starting the game he is seen in a painting at the Crossroads. It shows Melinoe as a baby along with Hades, Persephone, and of course, Zagreus. However, he looks quite different from how we see him in the first game. Simply walking in front of the painting will result in Melinoe saying a few words.

At the end of the game, when Melinoe faces Chronos, a cutscene will appear where you can briefly play as Hades himself in the House of Hades. We get to see what happened when Chronos took over and you later meet him in a room. You will see many characters frozen and one of them is none other than Zagreus.

It's the same character model from the first game so it's definitely him. He looks in an attack pose so it looks like he was trying to attack someone, probably Chronos, when he was frozen.

Chronos says that he ''only imprisoned them in a moment that will never pass'' so we can be sure that Zagreus is not dead. We don't know whether or not Melinoe will meet Zagreus in the life cycle of Hades 2 but for now we are sure of his fate in the game.
