This guy is the Emperor?"
"Um, yeah didn't you notice the, you know, the crown, the throne, the
crazy evil look in his eyes?
―Trixie, explaining the true identity of the Emperor to Pronto[src]

The Emperor was the ruler of The Eastern Caverns, and lived for over two thousand years. He is the main antagonist of the third season in Slugterra.


The Emperor was a ruthless, cruel, oppressive ruler, believing that everyone else lived only to serve him. He planned to rule China and wanted to find the ancient Elixir of Immortality. The only one standing in his way was Yang, an ancient ancestor of Junjie and a skilled archer. During the battle, Yang's skills were no match to the Emperor's dark magic. Yang then escaped and found The Eastern Caverns where he was safe from the tyrant. Eventually the Emperor would hear would of this "secret new world" and was enraged at the fact that there was a land he wasn't in control of. He would spend years trying to find it without any luck, until one day when one of the criminals arrested by Yang escaped and found his way to the Surface, revealing the location of the caverns to the Emperor.

At the crossing, Yang and the Emperor would have a final battle, and with Yang's newfound skills, the Emperor would be defeated and take a 18-19 level drop into Dark Water, which would transform him into an even more powerful being and, ironically, give him the immortality he always wanted. However it came with a price and took away his humanity. With his new powers, he would create an army of Stone Warriors from the rocks of The Deep Caverns, and try to escape his prison. Yet, the magic of the Guardian Gate above wouldn't allow it.

So, for the next 2000 years, the Emperor waited until he collected enough slugs that would accidentally find their way to the caverns, turning them into ghouls, and would go on to create a sword blaster out of magic to fire them. Eventually, the balance of Slug Energy wasn't powerful enough to hold him and his warriors back, and they were freed. The Shadow Clan and Guardian Slugs fled, but the Emperor would get his hands on a Guardian Boon Doc and ghoul it. He would then go on to face Junjie, and eventually ghoul him with the Goon, which would lead to the Downfall of the Eastern Caverns.



  • Sorcery - He can shoot bursts of energy or dark fireballs, and summon a shield to protect him from being damaged.
  • Immortality - Due to his exposure to the Dark Water of the Deep Caverns he gained his immortality and so have been able to survive for over 2000 years.
  • Ghoulgoyle - After the Dark Water mutated him he got the ability to ghoul slugs on his own using raw and pure dark energy, simply through touching them in a similar fashion as Dr. Blakk and the Goon.
  • Ghoul Enhancement - In addition to ghouling slugs, he is capable of enhancing a ghoul's power to greater levels due to his knowledge of magic. For example, he managed to empower his Cryptogrif with the ability to convert others into his loyal servant instead of a simple zombie. In addition, he ghouled the Goon with enough energy to the point where it is capable of mind control as opposed to the ability to make people sick like a regular Goon Doc.
