Give it up...for the Immortan Joe!
~ The Prime Imperator introducing Immortan Joe.

The Prime Imperator is a high-ranking member of the Citadel and a supporting antagonist in the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road. He is the chief of the Imperators, who serve as lieutenants in the War Boys.

He was portrayed by Richard Norton.


The Prime Imperator first appears to introduce Immortan Joe during one of the ceremonies at the Citadel right before Immortan Joe gave his speech to the masses.

He later took part in the pursuit of the War Rig to recover Immortan Joe's five wives and punish Furiosa for her betrayal. When Furiosa boarded the Gigahorse he served as her final opponent before she could reach the Immortan. Initially overpowering her, the Prime Imperator was knocked off the Gigahorse when Nux rammed it with the War Rig, causing the Prime Imperator to be run over by the Gigahorse's wheels and killed.


The Prime Imperator has a large and imposing build. As with the rest of the War Boys he is shirtless though he does not appear to have on the same white pigment that the regular War Boys are painted with. However, his head is painted entirely black. He also wears a belt buckle with the Cult of the V8's emblem adorned on it.
