Trivia

  • Most helhounds' names are references to Norse mythology, but their appearance bears more similarity to Cerberus, the multi-headed guard hound of the underworld in Greek mythology.
  • They are similar to the core hounds in which they are also dog-like creatures with more than one head. Although, the Core Hounds have only two heads whereas the helhounds have three.

Speculation

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Although helhounds were initially only seen in Helheim during World of Warcraft: Legion, their presence in the Shadowlands likely means that they originate from the realms of Death and were only introduced to Helheim through Helya's knowledge of the Shadowlands and/or her alliance with the Jailer.
