Pride is a powerful demon from the Actraiser universe and the second-to-last boss in Actraiser 2 where it corrupts the people of Humbleton into creating a "Tower of Souls" in order to reach the Master's abode and become gods in their own right.
Yet as Pride is a demon its goal is somewhat hypocritical as it also declares itself a god and expects humanity to worship it, taking on a form not unlike an advanced machine - thus enslaving humanity with false promises of achieving godlike powers if they effectively surrender themselves to its will.
Pride can temporarily freeze time, rain missiles from the sky and attack with energy beams - once destroyed Pride's hold on humanity is broken, avoiding a war between the world of men and the world of the gods.
