This is a list of deities of Dungeons & Dragons, including all of the 3.5 edition gods and powers of the "Core Setting" for the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) roleplaying game. Religion is a key element of the D&D game, since it is required to support both the cleric class and the behavioural aspects of the ethical alignment system – 'role playing', one of three fundamentals. The pantheons employed in D&D provide a useful framework for creating fantasy characters, as well as governments and even worlds.: 275–292 Dungeons and Dragons may be useful in teaching classical mythology. D&D draws inspiration from a variety of mythologies, but takes great liberty in adapting them for the purpose of the game. Because the Core Setting of 3rd Edition is based on the World of Greyhawk, the Greyhawk gods list contains many of the deities listed here, and many more.
The first official publication to detail god-like beings for use in the Dungeons & Dragons game was Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes, published in 1976 as the fourth supplement for the original edition. This work was superseded by the Deities & Demigods source book, which was first published in 1980. The first printing included the Cthulhu Mythos, but both this and the Melnibonéan mythos were removed by the third printing because of potential copyright issues. In 1985, the book was renamed Legends & Lore due to concerns about bad publicity. The Babylonian, Finnish, nonhuman, and Sumerian content were removed to allow room for expansion of the remaining mythoi.
In 1992, Monster Mythology was published as a sourcebook for the second edition of Dungeons & Dragons. This work re-introduced detailed information on the deities of several non-human pantheons. The Faerûnian pantheon for the Forgotten Realms campaign setting was more fully detailed in 1996–1998 with the publication of Faiths & Avatars, Powers & Pantheons and Demihuman Deities.
The deities are grouped into three categories:
- Core powers – Deities presented in the 3.5th edition Player's Handbook or substantially introduced in the other two core books (Dungeon Master's Guide and Monster Manual). Most of these deities are worshipped by humans. There is a subset within this category called Additional Deities which has deities not mentioned in the core rulebooks but instead in supplements and as such considered additions to the core category.
- Alternate human pantheons – This lists the pantheons and the deities within them that are presented in the supplement book Deities & Demigods. Most are based upon real-life mythology.
- Non-deity powers – These beings would fit into the previous category, but are not actually deities, plus most of them aren't the patron of a specific monstrous race. This includes the demon princes and archdevils as well as some other godlike beings.
Before third edition, there was no Core Setting, so the distinctions above are not as clear-cut. For the most part, materials which did not specify a setting were assumed to be at least compatible with the World of Greyhawk if not outright parts of the canon. As such, those prior materials are covered in the setting-specific lists of deities.
The book Monster Mythology, however, was considered to be canon for core materials for the gods of non-human races in second edition.
Deities in Dungeons & Dragons have a great variety of moral outlooks and motives, which have to be considered by cleric player characters. In some editions of the game, deities were given statistics, allowing mighty player characters to kill a god like a powerful monster. For gaming purposes, they are also differentiated by a number of standardized characteristics:
Ranks of divine power
Each deity has a divine rank, which determines how much power the entity has, from lowest to highest:
- Quasi-deities or hero deities. Beings of this rank are immortal but usually cannot grant spells to worshippers.
- Demigods. They are the weakest of the deities, and are able to grant spells and perform a few deeds that are beyond mortal limits.
- Lesser deities. These entities can perform more powerful deeds than demigods can, and have keener senses where their portfolios are concerned.
- Intermediate deities. These entities control larger godly realms than demigods or lesser gods.
- Greater deities. These entities typically have millions of mortal worshippers, and they command respect even among other deities. Some rule over pantheons of other deities.
- Overdeities. These entities are beyond the understanding and knowledge of mortals and care nothing for worshippers.
Every deity has certain aspects of existence over which it has dominion, power, and control. Collectively, these aspects represent a deity's portfolio.
Each deity that can grant spells has multiple domains that give clerics access to extra spells and abilities from that domain. Which domains are associated with a deity is largely a function of the deity's portfolio.
Many deities are arranged in pantheons, which are often led by Greater deities which are their direct superiors. The individual deities in a pantheon may not be forced to obey their superiors, although they typically respect and fear the superior deity.

Dungeons & Dragons 3rd edition
There are over 100 deities in the Greyhawk setting, and when creating Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition Wizards of the Coast selected a subset to become iconic deities. They selected and altered deities to correspond to "iconic" aspects of core D&D. Most core deities are human deities; except for the chief gods of the demihuman races. Certain aspects of the deities were altered to make them more generic – for example: the "Core" Heironeous favors the longsword (in order to make the favored weapon of the "God of Chivalry" more traditionally knight-like), as contrasted with the original "Greyhawk" Heironeous, who favors the battleaxe.
The designation of "greater" vs. "intermediate" comes from Legends & Lore (1990). It is not used in any edition of the Player's Handbook, but it is used in Deities and Demigods (2002) and various v3.5 Edition materials.

Although not listed in the Players Handbook, these deities are listed as part of the default D&D pantheon in new works and as such are regarded as additions to the default pantheon.

The third edition version of Deities & Demigods contains only four pantheons:
- A condensed Greyhawk pantheon meant for insertion into any game world ("Core D&D Pantheon")
- Greek mythos and heroes ("Olympian Pantheon"), among them: Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Dionysus, Hades, Hecate, Hephaestus, Hera, Hercules, Hermes, Hestia, Nike, Pan, Poseidon, and Tyche.
- Egyptian mythos ("Pharaonic Pantheon"), among them: Re-Horakthy, Anubis, Apep, Bast, Bes, Hathor, Imhotep, Isis, Nephthys, Osiris, Ptah, Set, Sobek and Thoth
- Norse mythos ("Asgardian Pantheon"), among them: Odin, Aegir, Balder, Forseti, Frey, Freya, Frigga, Heimdall, Hel, Hermod, Loki, Njord, Odur, Sif, Skadi, Surtur, Thor, Thrym, Tyr and Uller
The third edition version of the book also discusses in detail how one would go about the creation of their own pantheon, as well as individual gods, for use in Dungeons & Dragons.
These three alternative faiths were described in the third edition Deities and Demigods book.
The Faith of the Sun
The Faith of the Sun is a fictional, monotheistic religion presented in and constructed according to the guidelines given for monotheistic religions in 3rd Edition Deities and Demigods. Being monotheistic, it of course consists of only one deity (though said deity is described as having two aspects; a creator one and a destroyer one):
- Taiia, greater goddess of creation, destruction, mortal life and death.
Following the Light
Following the Light is a fictional dualistic religion presented in and constructed according to the guidelines given for dualistic religions in 3rd Edition Deities and Demigods. Being dualistic, it consists of two, polar-opposite deities:
- Elishar, intermediate deity of positive energy, light and prophecy.
- Toldoth, intermediate deity of negative energy, darkness and destruction.
The faith of Dennari is a fictional mystery cult, presented in and constructed according to the guidelines given for mystery cults in 3rd Edition Deities & Demigods. It worships a single deity of the same name:
- Dennari, lesser goddess of earth, liberation and suffering.
Similar to monster powers, these are not true deities but very powerful extraplanar beings. These however do not even profess to be gods (though many still have designs on godhood).
Demon lords of the Abyss
The single unifying feature of all demon lords (also called demon princes) is the inherent control over part of the infinite layers of The Abyss. Only the first 666 layers of The Abyss are generally known, and of those only a small fraction of the princes of those layers are a part of the D&D cosmology.
- Baphomet, Prince of Beasts, demon prince of beasts and vengeance (also the monster power of minotaurs): 58
- Dagon, demon prince and patron of the deep sea.: 59
- Demogorgon, self-proclaimed "Prince of Demons".: 61
- Eltab, demon prince of hatred and retribution.
- Fraz-Urb'luu, demon prince and patron of illusionists and tricksters.: 63

- Kostchtchie, demon prince of the 23rd layer of The Abyss, the Ice Wastes; patron of evil frost giants.: 8 : 68

- Malcanthet, demon queen of the succubi and patron of the hedonistic and lustful.: 69
- Obox-ob, demon prince and patron of vermin.: 71
- Orcus, demon prince of the 113th layer of The Abyss, Thanatos and patron of the undead.: 18 : 73
- Pale Night, demon princess and theorized mother of the demon lords.: 74
- Pazuzu, demon prince of the 503rd layer of the Abyss.: 76
- Sess'Innek, demon prince of civilization and dominion. (also the monster power of dark nagas and lizard kings)
- Vaprak, demon prince of combat and greed. (also the monster power of ogres and trolls)
- Yeenoghu, demon prince and patron of gnolls.: 78
- Zuggtmoy, demon princess and "Lady of the Fungi".: 80
- Numerous others.
Arch-devils of Baator
- Bel, an arch-devil, ruler of Avernus, the 1st layer of the Nine Hells.: 143
- Dispater, an arch-devil, ruler of Dis, the 2nd layer of the Nine Hells.: 8
- Mammon, an arch-devil, ruler of Minauros, the 3rd layer of the Nine Hells.: 149
- Belial, an arch-devil, and Fierna, his daughter, co-rulers of Phlegethos, the 4th layer of the Nine Hells.: 151
- Levistus, an arch-devil, ruler of Stygia, the 5th layer of the Nine Hells.: 154

- Asmodeus, an arch-devil, ruler of Nessus, the 9th layer of the Nine Hells and overlord of all the other Arch-devils.: 165
The celestial paragons are powerful unique outsiders of the Upper Planes. They are to the celestials as the archdevils are to the devils and the demon lords are to demons.
- ruler of the Silver Heaven of Lunia, the bottom layer of Celestia.
- ruler of the Golden Heaven of Mercuria, the second layer of Celestia.
- ruler of Venya, the Pearly Heaven, the third layer of Celestia.
- Pistis Sophia
- ruler of Solania, the Crystal Heaven, the fourth layer of Celestia.
- ruler of Mertion, the Platinum Heaven, the fifth layer of Celestia.
- ruler of Jovar, the Glittering Heaven, the sixth layer of Celestia.
- ruler of the Illuminated Heaven of Chronias, the seventh layer of Celestia.
- oversees the defense of the Court of Stars and liberates eladrins captured by evil forces.

- the most powerful of Leonals. Spends most of his time on Amoria, the topmost layer of Elysium.
- the duchess of the Equinals, resides on Amoria.
Archomentals are powerful exemplary beings of the Elemental Planes and the rulers of the elementals. Although they are not truly rulers of their planes, archomentals like to consider themselves as much and often grant themselves regal titles like Prince or Princess. They are compared in the source material to the archfiends or celestial paragons, and are considered to be the elemental equivalent of such beings.
The evil archomentals are collectively known as the Princes of Elemental Evil. The five most famous are:
- Cryonax, prince of evil cold creatures.
- Imix, prince of evil fire creatures.
- Ogrémoch, prince of evil earth creatures.
- Olhydra, princess of evil water creatures.
- Yan-C-Bin, prince of evil air creatures.
The good archomentals are collectively known as the Elemental Princes of Good. The four most famous are:
- Ben-hadar, prince of good water creatures.
- Chan, princess of good air creatures.
- Entemoch and Sunnis, prince and princess of good earth creatures.
- Zaaman Rul, prince of good fire creatures.
Lesser evil archomentals
Three other archomentals are first mentioned in Manual of the Planes (TSR, 1987).
- Bwimb, prince of ooze creatures.
- Chlimbia, prince of magma creatures. In The Inner Planes (TSR, 1998) he is described as evil tyrant.
- Ehkahk, prince of smoke creatures.
- Chourst, lord of randomness.
- Rennbuu, lord of colors.
- Ssendam, lord of madness.
- Wartle, domain unknown.
- Ygorl, lord of entropy.
Primus is the leader of the modrons and is the epitome of order, and possesses god-like powers in the game. Artist Tony DiTerlizzi became fascinated by Primus and the other modrons when he got the challenge to redesign them from their first edition appearance for the Planescape campaign setting. Reviewer Scott Haring found the process successful as the "once-silly Modrons" were "given a new background and purpose that makes a lot more sense".
"Titans are closer to the well spring of life and thus experience more pronounced emotion including Deity-like fits of rage. In ages past some rebelled against the deities themselves..."
The Lady of Pain
The Lady of Pain is an enigmatic being who oversees the city of Sigil in the plane of the Outlands. Almost nothing is known about her; her origin, her race, her motives and her level of power are all obscure, although she is sometimes shown to have absolutely immense power. The Lady of Pain refuses to tolerate anyone who worships her, killing those who do so. Again; virtually nothing is known about her, apart from the fact that she has the power to slay gods who displease her.
These entities are outside the boundary of life, death, and undeath. They are untouchable by even the most powerful deities although they can be summoned and used by the weakest mortal through pact magic and binding. Binders are often feared and hunted down by "Witch Slayers." The list of vestiges that can be bonded with include:
- Acererak: The Eternal.

Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition
These are the deities for the non-Greyhawk default campaign setting of 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons (informally referred to as the "points of light" setting). The list includes long-time D&D establishments from Greyhawk and the Forgotten Realms, as well as several original gods. Although some gods are patrons of specific races, they are worshipped by all, and racial pantheons do not exist in this edition. Many lesser gods from previous editions (such as the Seldarine or most members of the dwarven pantheon) now have the status of Exarch, a demipower in service to a greater god.
Good and Lawful Good deities
- Avandra – Good Goddess of Change, Luck and Travel, Patron of Halflings. She is revered by rogues, travelers, and merchants, and is the enemy of Zehir, Asmodeus, and Torog.
- Bahamut – Lawful Good God of Justice, Protection and Nobility. Patron of Dragonborn.
- Moradin – Lawful Good God of Family, Community and Creation (as in smithing). Patron of Dwarves
- Pelor – Good God of Sun, Agriculture and Time. Seasonal God of Summer.

Deceased and former deities
- Amoth – God of Justice and Mercy. Killed by the demon princes Orcus, Demogorgon, and Rimmon.
- Aoskar – God of Portals. Killed by the Lady of Pain.
- Gorellik – God of Hunting, Beasts, and Gnolls. Killed by the demon lord Yeenoghu.: 10
- He Who Was – A god of good and possibly peace, he was killed by his archangel and exarch, Asmodeus. Implied to be the creator of humans, the devils wiped out all knowledge of his name, which they fear is powerful enough to revive him if it is ever spoken aloud again. The Nine Hells were originally his astral domain, now a prison for Asmodeus and his devils. A holy chalice belonging to him is mentioned in Divine Power.
- Khala – Goddess of Winter, wife of Zehir, Khala sought to trap the natural world in an eternal winter to secure power over it. Her plans convinced the primal spirits to expel gods and primordials from the world. She was killed by the other gods in a conflict called the War of Winter, who afterwards made a compact to balance darkness and light (Zehir and Pelor), and the natural seasons (Corellon, Pelor and Sehanine). Her power over winter was taken by the Raven Queen.
- Lakal – God of Healing and Mercy who was also her own Astral Dominion. She was an impersonal deity who communicated with her chosen people, the Quom, through "ecstatic moments of personal communion." She extolled mercy and urged her followers to dedicate themselves to pursuits that benefited the whole cosmos. Lakal's death was accidental – when Bahamut battled Nihil, the Primordial of nothingness, the pair crashed into Lakal. Bahamut was able to use the distraction to slay Nihil, but the primordial's death throes also caused Lakal to explode. The surviving quom now roam the planes, retrieving any shards of Lakal that they can find, including those unknowingly consumed by living creatures. Such creatures, including humanoids and player characters, are considered collateral damage in the quom's quest to restore Lakal. Ironically, even if the quom succeed in their quest, the restored Lakal would be disgusted with their methods.
- Maglubiyet – God of Goblinoids. Defeated by Bane.
- Nerull – God of Death and the Dead. Killed by The Raven Queen.
- Tuern – God of War. Killed by Bane.
- Nusemnee – Nusemnee was the daughter of Zehir. When she failed to assassinate a high priest of Pelor, she was abandoned and then mortally wounded by a paladin's holy blade. Expecting only death, she was surprised when the high priest healed her, showing her compassion and forgiveness. Intrigued, she decided to honor a promise to the high priest and aid him in his holy quest until a time that she could save his life in turn. Nusemnee thus became a symbol of redemption. When she finally died at the end of the high priest's quest, she rose again, this time as a minor goddess. In this form, she opposed her father by offering redemption to all who would turn away from evil. She was later killed by a poison that could kill anything—even a deity—that was distilled from Zehir's blood.
Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition
These are the deities for the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, which mostly are printed in the Appendix section of the 2014 5th edition Players Handbook. These include the deities from the Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Dragonlance, Eberron, and the deities derived from historical pantheons such as the Celtic deities and Norse deities. The historical deities have been removed from their historical aspect as to better serve the needs of the game.
The 2014 5th edition Dungeon Master's Guide later provided the "Dawn War Deities" as a sample pantheon, an updated version of the main pantheon of 4th edition. These updates included readjusting some of the alignments, because 5th edition returned to the previous schema of nine alignments, as well as adding suggested cleric domains of the available domains from the PHB and DMG.
The Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide from 2015 then gave a more detailed overview of all the deities from the Forgotten Realm, including nonhuman deities. A more detailed and expanded overview of nonhuman deties was printed in the 2018 Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes.
