Trivia Edit

  • This unit is a reference to the great serpent Apep (also known as Apophis), an ancient deity of chaos, who devoured souls and attacked every night Ra, who traveled west to bring sunrise.
    • This deity's features were later merged with the god Set's, though in earlier myths, Set assisted Ra against the evil serpent.
  • Apep has the same stats as the Sphinx.
