Raiden (Moon King) is the true (former) main antagonist of Kubo and the Two Strings.


Raiden presents himself as a benevolent and kind ruler of the Moon with a millennia of wisdom to share, but just beneath his facade is his true demeanor: cold, cruel, and disgustingly perfect. Raiden hates anything that is related to the mortal world, believing that it is a filthy place and unfit for even a demigod such as his grandson, Kubo. Raiden will go to extreme lengths to obtain his desires, even if it means killing his own family or ripping out his grandson's eyes.
