How to Beat Zeus in Mythology Island

A lot of the big boss fights in Poptropica are difficult to win. While looking through the comments for the Mythology Island Walkthrough, I saw that a lot of people are really having trouble beating Zeus in the final battle for that island. He is a pretty tough opponent, but the good news is there are some really simple strategies on how to beat him. Check out this video for a short guide on how to defeat Zeus in Mythology Island. I’ve also written up the techniques below.

It’s All About the Clouds

If you do only one thing (well, besides shooting) in your battle with Zeus, it should be collecting those pink clouds. They are your life force. Each time Zeus hits you, you lose a cloud. If you lose all your clouds, you fall from the sky and Zeus wins. So keep getting clouds! Really.

Attack and Run Away

Zeus has the same basic attacks and in between those, he’s pretty vulnerable. So quickly move in to shoot him and then run away. You especially want to run away when he turns semi-invisible because he’s invulnerable to your attacks in that state. So move off to the side and wait a few seconds before going in for another attack. What should you be doing while waiting? Yes, you guessed it! Gather more clouds!

Eventually, you can easily wear down Zeus if you follow these simple directions. I think most people are really just having trouble because they don’t back off and take the time to gather up more clouds. Remember to keep switching between offense (shooting Zeus) and defense (picking up more clouds) and you’ll win easily.

  34. Gods it took me a half hour- still didnt beat him- then i came here poof i won the upside ? i know why cronus diddnt like zeus

  35. This stupid thing hates me!!!:(

  36. Oh, i totally agree Kareokeeeeeee. He is MEAN!!!!!

  37. Perfect Dragon

    Cronus didn’t like Zeus because he was afraid Zeus would get more powerful than him and overthrow him (which is exactly what happened)

  38. OMG!!! It’s basically IMPOSSIBLE!!! Zeus is near indestructable…silly computer! I got him to 0.000001% health and I had about 10 clouds and he “struck me down”! Why? WHY?

  39. ilikepancakes9

    where do u get the pomegranate to enter Hades’s realm

  40. how do u get a whisker from that cat a the under world

  41. and i have been on time tme tagled island

  42. that doesn’t help

  43. i am stuck!!!
    for the part where u play ur clairnet for tht flower thing wht music do u play?? wht buttons do u press? grrr!

  44. Mighty Snowball

    how do u get the hydra scale???????:(

  45. to get the hydra scale you must stomp on all of the heads. to get the pearl you must time your movements. to get the flower you must go way above the sphinx and turn on the water and make it flow just right. to get the whisker from cerberus you have to play a song on your reed pipe. to get the ring from the minotaur you have to go through the labrynth.

  46. hi It’s me jorel
    :mighty snowball press the hydra to get it’s scale

  47. where the tartarus can I find zeus’ FAT A**

  48. i cant get through the maze how do i organize the bones???????????????????????

  49. Right when you get into the air and are about to battle Zeus, hit the space bar and you get to be semi-invisible like him. His wind attacks will take a slightly less effect and I think it affects your cloud count too, because I had about a dozen of them swarming around me even when Zeus decided to be Annie Oakley.

  50. you organize the bones by making them say TEN

  51. OMG!!! I can’t beat him. One time I had a lot of clouds and 1 more strike would kill him right? Well he just zapped me with 1 bolt and I was “struck down” PLEASE HELP ME BEAT THE MEAN DOOOD!

  52. plz plz plz plz plz plz plz help me meat zeus he is really hard for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is there an actual cheat that i can use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????:|

  53. how do i beat zeas.it is realy hard for me PLEAS HELP

  54. It’s always the same for me. I have three clouds left and Zeus has this tiny sliver of health… then he hit hits me and I fall. He doesn’t have that weird glowy thing going on or anything he’s normal, he bumps into me then I die… It makes no sense.
    I’m REALLY frustrated here.

  55. hes so strong he strikes me super fast

  56. lol
    i avoid it
    and i won
    and im sorry to poptropica

    first,when you rise shoot him fast then go to your right (tip: don’t shoot him when he is white, the bolts will come at you) when you see white balls around him try to doge them, they will follow. if they him, the clouds go away. move when the wind comes go far right when he trys to side hit you and when the bolts in a circle come doge them

  77. keep going around in circles and keep clicking fast youll beet him in 5 minutes
