- — Trigon src
Trigon was originally the ruler of an unknown alien planet. Eventually, three powerful aliens known as the Divine, came to his planet in an effort to cleanse his soul of evil. The Divine summoned the great Heart of Darkness to feast on his soul. However, Trigon was able to absorb the power of the Heart of Darkness, which contained the collected evils of a hundred galaxies, becoming a supreme power that would destroy countless worlds. He killed The Divine, who he revealed were his parents before shredding them of their flesh and wearing their skin. Unable to cross the Divine's barrier, Trigon would summon women from other worlds to mate with them and impregnate them, then send them back, spreading his evil to destroy countless universes.
Powers and Abilities
- Demonic Physiology: Trigon is the spawn of a celestial race of aliens called the Divine. After merging with the Heart of Darkness, Trigon absorbed the collected evil from nearly one hundred galaxies, transforming him into one of the most powerful beings in the universe, (A misconception about Trigon is his demonic status. He may have demonic features, but Trigon is no Hellion. He is more of a manifestation of the concept of evil and hatred. He is still considered as a demon for obvious reasons). 
- Dimensional Travel: Trigon can travel through portals to and from his demonic dimension to other realms at will.
- Illusion Casting: Trigon is a master manipulator and can create elaborate illusions to fool others.
- Immortality: As a demon, Trigon does not age like mortals. Trigon has stated that he has existed since the dawn of time, before the big bang. This makes him at least 13.7 billion years old, and he still hasn't aged past his prime.
- Invulnerability: Trigon is nigh-unaffected by all forms of conventional bodily harm. He was completely unaffected by the punches of Superboy and Wonder Girl, as well as the light constructs of Bunker. Superboy expressed that hitting Trigon felt as effective as trying to destroy a mountain with a teaspoon. However Trigon's skin was pierced by the unique razor sharp glider of Red Robin.
- Metamorphosis: Trigon is able to alter his appearance at will. He was able to disguise himself in a human form. He can also generate large demonic hands from within his palms to extend his reach.

- Superhuman Reflexes
- Superhuman Strength: Trigon can crush buildings and tear apart streets.
