Ahhhh yes, Cerberus. The terrifying three-headed hellhound that is usually depicted with a snake tail, a mane made of snakes (kinda like medusa), and the claws of a lion. This creature is absolutely horrifying - 0/10 would not recommend. There's a reason why this thing was chosen to prevent the dead from escaping back into the living realm and that's because honestly who would want to mess around with this thing. He serves as Hades's personal watchdog for a good reason. However, despite all of this, there is one comical thing about this beast, its name. You see, looking at the etymology of Cerebus, Cerebus is a latinized version of the Greek word Kerberos. This comes from the Proto-Indo-European word k̑érberos which quite literally means "spot or spotted". That's right, so the lord of the underworld named his terrifying, soul scaring, guardian of the underworld Spot. We joke that we'd name it fluffy, but Hades basically did the thing and named him Spot. Why? I have no clue, you'd think the Greek myth-makers would name him something scary like Stormaggedon Dark Lord of All, but nope, they named him Spot.
