Created by the Edenian god, Argus, as the final battleground and the Elder Gods' safe guard should Armageddon occur, this pyramid rises forth when one of Argus' sons falls in battle. The triumphant son of Argus then steps through a nearby portal, instantly teleporting them to the top of the pyramid to confront the fire elemental Blaze.
Downstairs, all Kombatants (possibly fifty to sixty) wage war against one another in an epic conflict of good versus evil and eventually race to the top to gain the power promised should anyone defeat Blaze. Once Blaze is defeated, the vanquisher gains the immense power contained within Blaze, essentially gaining god-like power.
- The pyramid's top serves as the background for the Kreate a Fighter interface in MK: Armageddon.
- The pyramid makes a brief cameo in Green Lantern's ending, where it becomes the battlesite between the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps.
- In the opening of Mortal Kombat (2011), the Battle of Armageddon is fought on top of the Pyramid by the only two survivors: Shao Kahn and Dark Raiden. Shao Kahn ultimately defeats Blaze, absorbs his powers, and kills Raiden and destroys all of reality, but not before Raiden sends a message to his past self in the first Mortal Kombat tournament.
- The pyramid also makes a cameo in Mortal Kombat 11 as seen in Raiden's flashback where he as Dark Raiden fighting undead Liu Kang.
