Z̤͂â̢ḷ͊g̹̓ȯ̘ (as he is most commonly referred to) is described as an entity of pure chaos, a creature of utmost terror.
He is known as "He Who Waits Behind the Wall" and the "Nezperdian Hivemind" in some circles. Very little is known about Zalgo and its desires, objectives, or even real form.
He is an eyeless abomination with seven mouths. His right hand holds a dead star and his left hand holds the Candle Whose Light is Shadow and is stained with the blood of Am Dhaegar.
Six of his mouths speak in different tongues. When the time is right, the seventh shall sing the song that ends the Earth.
Only one thing has been made brutally clear- it is he who will cause the eventual destruction of Earth.

- Chaos and Destruction: When he appears in our dimension, he can bring the chaos in his presence, warping the reality at will, and generating chaos and making unwhole everyone in his chaotic presence.
- Requiem of Souls: The mere presence of Zalgo can mutate the bodies. When the eyes are gone, the soul is removed, and when he mutate someone, he let him without eyes. So his mere presence can mutate and remove the souls of everyone, and when the souls are outside the body he can devour it (also he can do this when the soul is in the body).
