"But how many more Hive abominations are still out there? Growing among the Darkness? I fear we may find out all too soon."
Ikora Rey

Phogoth, the Untamed was a Hive Ogre imprisoned within the Summoning Pits deep within the Hellmouth on the Moon, held in its chamber by great chains.[1] He was killed by the Guardians in a Strike, but returned as a Nightmare years later after the awakening of the Pyramid on the Moon.

Summary[edit]

Raised by the Wizard Mormu, Xol Spawn of the Hidden Swarm,[2] Phogoth is described to be a product of one of the Hive's more depraved workings: a ritual of rebirth where, unlike most Ogres — who are driven by ravenous hunger, and unbridled, nigh-uncontrollable hatred — Phogoth's hatred and hunger is honed and directed with purpose.[3] According to Eris Morn, Phogoth's purpose is purely destruction, a reminder of the threat the Hidden Swarm poses.[4]

After his death at the hands of the Guardians, Phogoth has risen again as a Nightmare, which the Guardians hunted down and defeated.

Gameplay[edit]

Phogoth is the final boss of The Summoning Pits Strike mission. When encountered by Guardians, Phogoth breaks free from its chains and attacks, using both his brutal strength and Eye Blast to overwhelm his enemies caught in his gaze.[5] Unlike most Ogres, Phogoth's weak spot is the pulsating tumor on his chest. This weak spot can be difficult to hit when Phogoth is hunched over.
