A multi-eyed wizard who abducted Ariel to be his bride in Fortress of Fear. The titular fortress of Vanow is Argoth's citadel, a massive walled complex with Argoth's Palace, manufacturing rooms for his robots and flying machines, and quarters where his slaves are housed. Argoth may have died after falling into a tar pit within the Forbidden Jungle. He was last seen turning to mist in an attempt to escape the tar pit.
Argoth is a mutant wizard. His mutation gives him dozens of extra eyes. The magical powers he has been seen using include:
- turning into a yellow mist then flying away
- energy blasts fired from his many eyes
Argoth was also extremely durable. He survived having his palace collapse on him.
- Vanow Citadel
- A red crystal he used to control the Beast of the Forbidden Jungle. This crystal also allowed him to watch the beast from a distance.
