MAYA MYTHOLOGY

The Mayan Gods of Mesoamerica...

ZIPACNA

Mayan Mountain God

Evil Mountain God with Underworld connections

He’s the gargantuan son of Underworld God VUCUB-CAQUIX and the giant brother of giant CABRAKAN. This can only lead to trouble.

He claims to have created the mountains, but to be honest we think he was boasting. A complete thug, he was extremely arrogant and nasty, and thought nothing of killing four hundred brave young warriors by sitting on them. Okay, so they’d been sent by the other gods to kill him, but it’s still a nasty way to go.

ZIPACNA came to a nasty end thanks to the HERO-TWINS, who set a devious trap. They made an enormously juicy and mouthwatering artificial crab and told ZIPACNA his dinner was ready.

While he was salivating over it, they chopped down a nearby mountain the way lesser mortals would chop down a tree. And Timberrr! the mountain toppled and crushed ZIPACNA beneath its weight.
