|“||Not so fast, human! I am Apep, the Snake God! Guardian of the Gates to the Land of the Living! No mortal that steps in the Netherworld is permitted to return to the lands above. If you insist on attempting escape, I have no choice but to force you to stay!||„|
|~ Apep to Mathayus, before he defends himself|
Apep is the Snake God and a supporting antagonist of The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian.
He was voiced by Mark Hamill, who provided the voice of the Joker from the Batman: Arkham videogame series.
He snarled at Mathayus and explained his purpose in the Underworld. He warned Mathayus that if the Akkadian leaves, the gods would keep Mathayus' soul.
Apep does not treat mortals who attempt to leave the Underworld kindly.
