If Classical Literacy Goes Up, Hades Comes to Town!

Books have always been an escape, and we’re sure many of you have turned to them to occupy your mind the past year. However, we all know ideas can be dangerous. So if you’ve been reading any banned books, this newest Modern Myth may show up to incinerate them — you have been warned!

Hades will be available for sale starting at 15:00 MHQ time today until 15:00 MHQ time on May 12!

Hades Details

The Hades Modern Myth will be available for purchase HERE! He will be spotted bouncing around to Greenies, Fire Mysteries, Gray, Black, and Dark Blue Colored Virtuals*, Citrines, Treehouses, and Skylands every 12 hours or when capped.

Each Hades is numbered and will be owned by a Munzee player. You can pick this Myth up for $20! The sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership. Only ONE (1) Hades is allowed per account.


  • Deploy: 250
  • Capture: 200
  • CapOn: 100

In keeping with the Modern Myth line, when he is captured 3 new munzees will also be scattered nearby — these will either be Bidents or Firestarters!

These will scatter like feathers so there are no CapOn points but they are worth 50 points for capture!

Hades is able to be upgraded via a Bouncer Upgrade Credit, which gives the ability to be “nudged” or be renamed. The upgrade credit will give you the ability to “nudge” your Hades to a new munzee up to three times a day, following the MHQ 24-hour day, after it has been on its host munzee for at least three hours. This nudging ability is only available for the owner via the munzee’s webpage and is not available in the app.

Your munzee will still retain its unique number, but feel free to get creative when it comes to renaming your Hades! Just be sure to follow the Player Code of Conduct, and remember Munzee maintains a family-friendly environment.

If you’re hoping to cap one of these brand new Modern Myths, then you’re in luck! Hades will be attracted to Munzee Magnets and Virtual Munzee Magnets. You can access Hades by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Mythological” filters.


Deploying Hades will earn you the following badge:

All captures will count toward the Myth Collectors badge line. There is also a line of hidden Capture badges that you can earn for Hades captures, with 3 badges currently available, but more to come! The first in this line will appear as follows:

Previous Modern Myths Return!

If you missed out on Poseidon and/or Aphrodite, they’ll also be back in the store to greet Hades into the game!

We hope you’re ready to welcome this new Myth incarnation to the family! Be on the lookout for more Modern Myths to make their way to Earth soon!

Munzee on!
