- ―The Gate Guard to Slade
The Gate Guard was in the episode "The End - Part 3".
He was seen fighting Slade with his axe while guarding a large door. He wears a plain metal helmet without any sort of visor or visual source, (although he does appear to have a humanoid face and at least one eye, as damage to the helmet would reveal) but still shows considerable awareness and skill in fending off intruders despite this. His wicked axe is able to generate fire along the blade, and possesses a separate blade at the other end of the handle. The guard himself seems to be able to withstand average physical damage and extreme heat, and may possibly be in an undead or immortal state. He bears the Mark of Skath on his chest, which is also present on the door he was guarding, possibly indicating some sort of subservience or relation to Trigon or his followers. While he may have had Slade beat in brute strength, a well placed bomb on the door seemed to do away with the Guard while opening the door at the same time, leaving nothing but his helmet and axe. Slade took the axe to aid the Titans in their fight against Trigon. Despite its size and presumed mass, Slade was able to hurl the weapon through the air to a great height and wounded the demon in the face, suggesting that the weapon has supernatural properties of its own independent of the guard.
- There is evidence that the guard is undead due to the fact that when Slade was fully restored to his human form when the door opened, the guard simply vanished, and it is rather unlikely that the bomb would have blown the guard up when lava did nothing to him.
- He is the only villain to have never personally encountered the Teen Titans.
- He bears a slight resemblance to the antagonist known as Pyramid Head from the Silent Hill series, whose head is similarly encased and who is also armed with a unique oversized weapon.
