Zarok is the main antagonist of the videogame MediEvil. He is an evil sorcerer hellbent on taking over the realm with an army of undead.
He was voiced by Norio Wakamoto in the Japanese version, and the late Paul Darrow in the English version.
A century before the game begins, it is believed that Sir Daniel Fortesque succesfully killed Zarok during a war against an army of demons he had created (it was made up on the king's part). Zarok had survived the battle however, and returned to exact revenge, bringing the dead to back to life with his magic to aid him. Unfortunately for him, he unknowingly brought his old nemesis back from the grave as well. Zarok was eventually defeated by Fortesque. His spellbook fell into the hands of another power-hungry sorcerer 500 years later.
Zarok is vain, ruthless, manipulative and obsessed with power. Despite his camp behavior and effeminate appearance, he is extremely tough, fearless and trustworthy. However, in MediEvil 2, he was implied to be cowardly.
