Chernabog, the Black God, is a powerful demon who only comes out at night. He is supposedly the ruler of all darkness and commands all the other villains, only to lose his control over them when they start having civil wars against each other.
Appearing as one of the most powerful villains in all three major villains tournaments, he first appeared in the animated Disney film Fantasia's "Night on Bald Mountain" sequence. He is seen by most as the darkest and most villianous character ever created by Disney.
Disney Vs Non Disney Villains
Evil takes many forms. Sometimes, it takes the form of men, women, and beasts of a dark nature who prey on the innocent. Sometimes, it takes a purer form of darkness.
It has been theorized that Chernabog has taken different identities throughout the multiverse, each sharing a supremely powerful and pure evil form. The true origins of this version of the Black God are unknown, although he is believed to be as old as the world itself. According to the beliefs of his followers, Chernabog sought to spread his darkness across a world in a way that he was stopped from doing elsewhere in the multiverse, and saw the villains of Earth as a means to this end. Using his dark magic in subtle ways, Chernabog allowed the villains to prevail over their heroic nemeses, almost completely annihilating them.
Once the way was clear, Chernabog began influcencing key individuals with his darkness, bringing them into his service as his Acolytes. Among the most prominent of these individuals was Mok Swagger, who began forming multiple cults worshipping the Black God and increasing his power. However, not all the villains of Earth were so accepting of their prospective master. Other gods like Hades and Eris saw Chernabog as a threat to their own power, and sought to limit his influence over the Earth. Some mortals, like Judge Claude Frollo, believed themselves purer than they truly were, and saw Chernabog as something to be purged from Earth. Some of these conflicts began spreading out of Chernabog's control, and he decided to take a more active role in his quest for total domination.
Pre War: Power of the Crystal
At the dawn of the war, Chernabog and his two brothers, The Nightmare King and the Emperor of Night pooled their powers together to create a power to create a super crystal, in which all heroes would die out and all villains would rise to power. Chernabog, however, sought to rule the world, and his two angered brothers, as well. However, after a tremendous display of power by the crystal, Chernabog and his brethren were ambushed by the Dark Council. During the attack, the great crystal was destroyed, much to Chernabog's fury. He then vowed revenge on he Dark Council.
Battle of the Demons
In the first War, Chernabog continues his conflict with his brother, and wages civil war with the Nightmare King. In a great battle on Bald Mountain, the two mighty demons first call forth their minions, lesser demons, spirits, ect. Both destroying the others forces, neither seems to be able to gain the upper hand, until Chernabog finally calls forth enough dark power to cast a powerful spell. With that, Chernabog ultimately banishes the Nightmare King from this plane of existence. With his greatest rival defeated, Chernabog then proceeds to unleash his darkness upon the earth.
The Sorcerers' Revenge
As word of the horrors unleashed by the Black God spreads, two powerful sorcerers, Rothbart and Rasputin quickly hear of this. The two join forces in order to take him out, but when the confront the Black God, they merely are able to defeat the lesser demons of Bald Mountain. They are forced to flee, as Chernabog's awesome power trumps their combined efforts. However, the two crafty sorcerers have an ace up their sleeve. And after some incantations, Rasputin and Rothbart summon the Emperor of the Night, an equally powerful demon. The very next night, the Emperor attacks Chernabog with his powers, but Chernabog responds by conjuring a blast of hellfire. The Emperor counters this with a powerful spell that blinds the Black God. Now unable to fight, Chernabog is forced to turn back into the peak of Bald Mountain. Not only do the two sorcerers gain victory, but the Emperor gained revenge for Chernabog's previous treachery.

Hints of a Return
Chernabog remains silent throughout the rest of the first war, but his return is subtly hinted at during the second. After Mok Swagger returns to his home base, he searches for a mysterious "Armageddon Key." The computer screen shows only a picture of Chernabog.
Dominion Over Hell
It is also revealed that Chernabog has complete dominion over Hell itself in this particular round. His commanders and elite demons include King Minos, the Judge of the Damned, Cerberus (Demon), which unlike Hades' Cerberus is a giant, monstrous worm who devours the damned souls in Gluttony, and Charon (Demon), which unlike the boatman serving Hades is a half-demon half-barge who ferries the souls of the damned on its back.
Chernabog torments Frollo, who had been sent to Hell as a result of his defeat in the first part of the tournament, for a time, before leaving to communicate with Stalker and leaving Frollo to be judged by Minos. It is unknown, however, if Chernabog is aware of Frollo's recent escape from Hell.
Return to the War
Although he had previously been defeated by Rasputin, Rothbart, and the Emperor of the Night, Chernabog had in fact been planning a return through the use of his Acolytes, led by Stalker. He orders Stalker (and through the Stalker the Acolytes) to collect powerful crystal that will later be consolidated into a "master crystal" that will enable Chernabog's return to Earth. Before the ceremony on Bald Mountain can be completed, however, a group of villains opposed to Chernabog known as the "Anti-Acolytes" invade Bald Mountain, not only blasting the crystal into the universe but also slaying all but three of Chernabog's acolytes. After Chernabog punishes Odin for his failure, leaving only a puddle of blood, the situation looks grim for his Acolytes. However, Mok Swagger reveals himself to be (apparently) an ally or at least an acquaintance to Stalker, and promptly summons the Homunculi to supply them with fresh new allies.
Disney Vs Non Disney Villains - Part Three
Disney Villains War
Chernabog's role in DVW is arguably his greatest in all the wars, due to him being primarily the main incarnation of the series' Bigger Bad: the Great Evil.
With Forbidden Mountain transformed into Bald Mountain, Doctor Facilier and Narissa at last were able to summon their dark master: the Black God, Chernabog. The demon began amassing an army of the dead, including the Horned King's Cauldron Born, a ghostly Pete and Scar, a T-Rex from the distant past, and many other demons and spirits.
Vs Another Villains
Not caring about the fall of his most loyal minion, Chernabog began laying waste to the mortal world, first interfering as Zira caught up with Alameda Slim, intent on making him pay for murdering her son. Just as she prepared to kill her enemy, the ghost of Scar knocked her aside. Shocked by this attack from her undead mate, Zira was helpless to prevent herself from being tossed into a raging river. Slim rejoiced in his seeming reprieve, only for Pete's ghost to arrive on the scene and suck out his soul.
Chernabog was delighted at this turn of events, but was shaken from his celebration by the arrival of Demona, who had uncovered a spell that would turn its victim to stone for all time. Attempting to use this spell against Chernabog, she was defeated when the Black God, redirected the spell back at her, petrifying her instead. The Queen of Hearts was next to arrive, leading Wonderland's card army against the demon. As the army reached the peak of Bald Mountain, Chernabog corrupted their souls, turning them and their Queen into demons which he then threw into a lake of hellfire. Odin then attacked, summoning the Chaos Lord of Fire, Surt, and sending him to assault the Black God. Surt tried to burn Chernabog to death, but the demon was immune to fire, absorbing Surt into himself and then spitefully using the resulting power to destroy Asgard. Learning of the chaos threatening the world above, Hades unleashed Cerberus once more. The hellhound raced up the mountainside to try his luck at defeating Chernabog, but was ambushed by the T-Rex on the way. Cerberus defeated the dinosaur, mauling it to death, but his victory was short lived. Chernabog blasted a rift in the earth, sending Cerberus back to the Underworld.
It seemed that Chernabog was victorious, having bested legions of the most powerful villains alive without even straining his vast power. However, it was at this moment that Zeus, king of the gods, decided to put a stop to the war once and for all. With his powerful lightning bolts, Zeus defeated Chernabog and banished him from the mortal world, forcing the Black God and all his demons and ghosts back into the abyss.
Disney Villains War 2
Overcome with grief and rage after Esmeralda's death, Frollo locked himself in the Palace of Justice and wallowed in his emotions. Seeing a chance to seize control of Frollo, Chernabog's spirit contacted the judge and offered him a single wish. As Chernabog predicted, Frollo asked for Esmeralda to be returned to life. Chernabog obliged him, restoring Esmeralda's soul... for a few brief moments. To Frollo's horror, Chernabog announced that the judge had become everything he ever hated and, having sought a favour from the devil, had damned his soul to eternal servitude. Chernabog then struck, draining Frollo's soul from his body.

Disney Villains War Reboot
Ruler of the Underworld
Sealed withing the deepest layers of Tartarus, prior to the events of the war, Chernabog begins his ascension into the mortal plane. When the God of the Underworld Hades checks up on him, Chernabog takes the opportunity to make his escape, using his supernatural powers to break the barrage of Tartarus, finally being released once again. He then turns his attention to Hades, challenging the god to a duel of supremancy. After an intense battle, Chernabog overpowers the god, sending him plummeted to the River Styx, and claims the Underworld for himself.
He is also revealed to be Queen Narissa's master, whom he tasked to find more accomplices for his grand uprising.
Disney Vs Marvel Villains War
He commanded Avalanche to merge with him so that he could be free from the Underworld. Their resulting fusion changed Avalanche into a reverse-negative colored version of himself. Before he could unleash his devastating attacks on Doctor Doom during the final battle, the mad doctor vaporized Avalanche, and releasing Chernabog from his soul. The demon god rewarded Doom by throwing him into the cosmos, and then later teaming up with Maleficent to defeat Galactus. After the galactic overlord was killed, Mickey showed up to take down Chernabog once and for all. But all the mouse did was pester the demon with magic attacks. Mickey finally realized that in order to defeat Chernabog, he would have to become Julius by merging with the creature just as Avalanche did. Needless to say, Julius Chernabog Mouse is now stuck in Limbo where a new enemy waits for him...Carnage, the spawn of Venom.
Disney Vs Marvel Villains War - Part Two
When the second war began, Chernabog was still stuck in the form of Julius, but had managed to get along just fine with Carnage , thereby avoiding any possible conflicts between the two. Their stay at Limbo was interrupted when Negaduck arrived, having been banished there by Hobgoblin's interdimensional portal. Chernabog, still weak and mindlessly stupid from the fusion with Mickey, allowed Carnage to finish off Negaduck, then allied himself with Dormammu when the dimension lord revealed himself to the two villains.
For many months from then on, Chernabog dwelled within the chrysalis form of Feral Mickey, supposedly showing complete loyalty to Dormammu and helping the Demon Sorcerer along in furthering his evil schemes. But in reality, the evil, cunning intellect of Chernabog still existed and began to grow in strength over time. Eventually, when the Kingpin and Xanatos attacked Spider-Carnage's tower, Feral Mickey was sent to stop the two crime lords and almost nearly executed the Kingpin when Smythe had a change of heart and blasted the creature to smithereens. But it was too late; the mindless bestial cocoon of Feral Mickey had burst open, revealing a freshly risen Chernabog from the gooey black ashes, and now in the form of the Minotaur. Laughing at the return of his full power, he summoned a corridor of darkness to transport himself to an unknown location, where Venom-Avalanche will no doubt be waiting for him in revenge...

Plan to free him
Meanwhile, on Forbidden Mountain, Maleficent gathered all of her allies to explain her master plan: using the pure spirits of the captured princesses, she would summon the Black God Chernabog, who would remake the world in his dark image, giving all the assembled villains a place at his side as the world's new masters.
Telling his plan
Meanwhile, on Forbidden Mountain, Chernabog's spirit contacted Maleficent and Hades, asking them to hasten their efforts to sacrifice the princesses to him and bring him into the mortal world. Both villains assured him that his time was coming very soon.With Chernabog growing anxious to be given his promised sacrifice, Hades summoned a group of monsters like the Hydra, Monstro, and the Headless Horseman to give Maleficent an edge over the heroes.
Closer to be freed
As Hades and the Firebird returned, Maleficent and Chernabog were pleased, being that much closer to Chernabog's return to the mortal world.Another fierce rivalry was about to heat up as Frollo assembled his army to bring Maleficent to justice, with Chernabog watching this new development with curiosity and delight.
Across the world, the spirits of the dead rose up, including those of the Cauldron Born, the former subjects of the currently deceased Horned King, attacking anyone in their way as they headed towards Bald Mountain to serve Chernabog. The archdemon began his attack on the heroes, causing a great earthquake that ripped open the ground, causing Yzma and many heroes to fall into the fissures. The heroes managed to climb back to safety, but Yzma was lost. Just as it seemed the worst was over, Chernabog's elite demons erupted from the fissures, attacking the heroes. The ghosts and evil spirits also arrived on the scene, joining in the assault. Chernabog's demonic cat herald appeared before the animal heroes, harassing them. As most of the resistance battled Chernabog's demons, the cat attacked Basil, brutally beating him to the ground. Maleficent backed Hercules up against a cliff and, despite Peter Pan and Jim Hawkins' attempts to keep her occupied, she knocked the sword from his hands, pinning him to the ground and preparing to tear him apart. As she went in for the kill, Merlin leaped off a ledge above her and transformed himself into a walrus, crushing her beneath his weight. While Maleficent throttled Merlin, Hercules seized the opportunity to retrieve his sword. Before Maleficent could attack him again, Hercules hurled the blade into her chest. As another tremor shook the earth, Hercules, Merlin, and the other heroes got to safety as the cliff collapsed beneath Maleficent's weight. Chernabog looked down and saw Maleficent's cloak with Hercules' sword through it, all that remained of the sorceress. With Maleficent finally dead, Mickey Mouse donned Yen Sid's hat and scaled the peak to battle Chernabog himself. Chernabog fired tremendous blasts of demonic magic at his adversaries, knocking the heroes back. As Chernabog's ghosts and demons surged in, the benevolent spirits tried to keep them back, but were overcome by their enemies' power and numbers. Seeing the situation was growing more dire, Mickey climbed to a high perch and engaged Chernabog once again. He was knocked to the ground by a blast of Chernabog's hellfire despite his attempt to halt it, knocking his hat off. As Chernabog prepared to finish the heroes off, the Spring Sprite rushed into battle, summoning the spirits of all that was good and pure in the world to stop Chernabog's rampage. Seeing what was happening, Mickey recovered his hat and began pouring all his energy into the spirits of light, allowing them to start to overcome Chernabog. While the demon cat was distracted by this turn of the tide, Basil seized his robe and pinned it beneath the rocks on the mountainside, allowing Merlin to destroy the demon with his magic cane. Seeing what Mickey and the Sprite were doing, the combined forces of the heroes began cheering them on, their energy and their weapons fuelling the counter-attack. When the spell was finished, Mickey fired it at Chernabog, finally staggering the Black God. Drained of energy, Chernabog could not prevent himself from being forced back into his realm. As he retreated, however, he warned the heroes that as long as darkness and evil remained in the world, he would endure. He vowed to return and take his vengeance.
