This article is about the Book of Mormon figure. For the Filipino Mythological figure, see Ama-ron.
Ammoron should not be confused with Amaron, Ammaron, Amoron, or Moron (Book of Mormon) three other Book of Mormon figures with similar names.

According to the Book of Mormon, Ammoron (/ˈæm.ɔːr.ɑːn/[1]) was a Nephite traitor. A descendant of Zoram, he succeeded his brother Amalickiah as the king of the Lamanites. Amalickiah, as king, started a major war with the Nephites, which the Nephites had hoped would end with his death. However, Ammoron seized power and continued the war. Eventually his armies were defeated and he was slain by Teancum.
