Phogoth, the Untamed is a Hive Ogre imprisoned deep within the Moon, held in its chamber by great chains.[1] It is a boss of The Summoning Pits Strike mission. When encountered by Guardians, Phogoth breaks free from its chains and attacks, using both its brutal strength and arcane abilities in an attempt to slay the intruders.[2] Unlike most Ogres, Phogoth's weak spot is the pulsating tumor on its chest. This weak spot can be difficult to hit when Phogoth is hunched over.

Trivia[edit]

  • Phogoth's name is reminiscent of the shoggoth from H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, along with the Greek word "Phobos" ("fear").
  • The creature subtly resembles both Marathon's Drinniol and its spiritual successor, Halo's Sharquoi.
  • Phogoth was renamed "Hive Abomination" as of Patch 2.4.0.
