Inferno is a Mythic Age god power available to Chongli in Age of Mythology:Tale of the Dragon. It burns down enemy buildings and scorches units located inside its radius for a duration of 19 seconds.


This God Power is quite effectively used in attacks on enemy bases as it does equal amounts of damage to buildings and units. Similar to Hera's Lightning Storm God Power and contrary to its description, Inferno does no damage to friendly or allied buildings/units. As such, it is perfectly safe to use while in the middle of a battle. As a matter of fact it is recommended. Inferno generates wandering flames that do area of effect damage to anything they touch, but they remain within the God Power radius.

Units within that radius will only receive damage if they come in contact with the flames and can easily escape harm altogether by leaving the area. So to maximize its effects, players should cast this power in the middle of a decisive battle, such as an attempt to secure an enemy settlement. This way, they will either be standing in one place fighting off their attackers or have more difficulty escaping while manoeuvering around their own buildings. Even if some units escape, the enemy buildings will not only be weakened but left completely unattended.

Like Ao Kuang's Great Flood, Inferno is not the most powerful "disaster" god power and will only take out the weakest buildings and units. However, anything that remains will be severely weakened and easier to dispose of. Airborne units are unaffected by Inferno.


  • When first revealed to the public, Inferno's icon was originally the same image as Artemis' Flames of Typhon improvement (as shown below). This was confirmed to be a placeholder by the developers.
  • Inferno was originally an Egyptian Godpower in Beta Versions of Age of Mythology, until it was removed for unknown reasons, it's icon became used for the Flames of Typhon tech.
