As you do run after run in Hades, you’ll get used to all the Boons and upgrades that each God offers. Whether it be Poseidon’s water-based powers or Zeus’ lightning-based ones, they’re all worth trying to see what’s best for you. However, you’ll be introduced to other gods as you get towards the end of the game. So that you can take advantage of her powers, here’s everything you need to know about how to unlock Demeter in Hades.
Demeter is the Goddess of the Seasons and offers icy Boons and power-ups. You’ll be able to freeze enemies when dashing, stopping them from moving for a second or so.
Be warned, there will be some spoilers for the bosses and later areas of Hades below.
How to Unlock Demeter in Hades
There’s one thing you have to do to unlock Demeter and you’ll never see her unless you do it. You need to get to the final boss, who is your father Hades himself, and start the fight with him.
The final area of the game is an icy outdoor location, which ties into the powers of Demeter. You don’t actually need to beat Hades in the boss fight, you just need to get to it.
Then, when you start the next run, the first Boon that you’re given will be from Demeter and you’ll meet her for the first time.
Following that, you should see her power-up icons pop up every now and then. As you can see below, you’ll be looking for the blue/white icon, which looks like an icy arrow. Interact with that and you’ll get a Boon from Demeter again.
Also, if you give her a gift, you’ll be given her Keepsake, which you can activate in the next run to ensure that you get a power-up from her immediately.
