N'Zoth is one of the Old Gods nicknamed "The Corrupter" and is one of the major antagonists in Warcraft franchise. He is also a pivotal greater-scope villain in World of Warcraft as a whole, serving as the overarching antagonist of Cataclysm, later the overarching antagonist in Val'Sharah questline of Legion, and the main antagonist of Battle of Azeroth.
He is the Old God primarily responsible for the corruption of Nelfarion into Deathwing and is also speculated to be the one responsible for turning Queen Azshara into a Naga. He is currently the only Old God still active and rules the Nightmare from the depths of Azeroth's seas beyond the Rift of Aln, a location in the Emerald Dream linked to the Twisting Nether that appears to be a reflection of a similarly-named massive chasm in the seafloor beneath the Maelstrom.
N'Zoth was the first Old God imprisoned by the Titans after the death of Y'Shaarj when they discovered that killing the Old Gods could also cause the destruction of Azeroth as well, being sealed beneath the oceans. It's implied that he's actually broken his bonds, though he still received aid from Yogg-Saron and C'Thun in corrupting Deathwing provided they use Deathwing's Dragon Soul to escape Azeroth.
- Considering that he is the reason to indirectly make Sargeras went insane (alongside other Old Gods) and subsequently the Burning Legion's foundation, and later Queen Azshara and her followers' transformation into naga, the creation of Emerald Nightmare under Xavius' efforts, and the corruption of Deathwing, N'Zoth is the overarching antagonist in the entire World of Warcraft.
