Title: What Does "Azarath Metrion Zinthos" Mean?


Shadow Of Hate - May 9, 2004 06:28 PM (GMT)
Just as the title implies, what does "Azarath Metrion Zinthos" mean?

WhiteNBlack - May 9, 2004 07:30 PM (GMT)
Didn't we already discuss this on the old TRS?

Anyways, Azarath=Raven's home
Metrion=Raven's real name
Zinthos=Raven's pet raven's name

Note: I think that "Zinthos" is actually spelled "Xinthos"

Shadow Of Hate - May 9, 2004 07:32 PM (GMT)
Ah, that explains a lot. Thanks for replying

That's one theory anyway...

One thing's for certain, Azarath is name of the Dimension where she was born/raised.

and Shadow has it spelled right (at least based on the TTG comic).

Guess we'll never know.

Azarath - Raven's home planet/dimension



Metrion - *Shakes head* Metrion is not Raven's real name. Some clever fanfic author decided that's what it stood for and it's been spread as gospel. Lady T has never heard anything of the sort, so I'm assuming that's not true.


Zinthos - I'm not sure if the pet raven thing is correct....check with Lady T, I'm inclined to think it's wrong.


This topic is debatable.....so go ahead. :D

Actually I just rarely come into this forum....

Azarath is Raven's home - sort of a religious Shangri-La founded by the first Azar basically to ward off the attack of Trigon

Metrion and Zinthos mean absolutely nothing.

Raven's powers are completely different between the comic and the cartoon. I don't know what they're going to be like as of the end of this arc in the current series, but previously she mostly sent her "soul self" to encompass the baddie, or she teleported people out of the way, or she healed the injured. She wasn't tossing spells, making shields, fighting, etc.

I don't quite remember it exactly as that - but it does go into all that self control stuff.

Maybe she can't kill a human being in a rage or something like that.....

Metrion and Zynthos were made up by the writers to form a plot in the cartoon.

Thats actually clever if you think about it. I mean it gives a plot twist because if she doesnt finish the chant the spell isnt complteted. Although sometimes she doesn't even use it but, it can still be used.

Lady Timedramon - May 17, 2004 03:02 AM (GMT)
If you watch, she doesn't always use the incantation, yet does the same things. So why bother having a magic phrase in the first place?

The tougher the thing she's trying to do, the more often she uses it--but they do get inconsistent with it.

I've read production interviews, and they wanted to keep the characters simple--easy for their target audience to understand and describe. Everybody knows Batman's sidekick. Then you have an alien girl who flies and shoots green light, a green boy who turns into animals, and another boy who has robot parts.

Raven is a witch. Magic is a lot easier to understand/describe than psionics, so they've focused on that part of her. It also gives her a weakness (if she doesn't get her spell off, she can't use her power--unless she's angry anyway). And it's dramatic.

Mumbo Jumbo had a magic wand, and he was still using every magic word and phrase in the book! If I could ask a question, it would be why Jinx doesn't have a magic phrase (a weaker "enchantress" perhaps?)

Beats the heck out of me, what it means. Maybe it just means the same thing that "Ommmmmmmmmmm" means, when one meditates. It's just a trigger, a focusing mechanism to help Raven channel her powers. To help her concentrate by focusing on the words, rather than just on what she needs to do.

And frankly, "Azarath Metrion Zinthos", sounds a lot cooler than just "Ommmmmmm..." ;)

Fledgling - May 21, 2004 03:55 PM (GMT)
My personal theory (based on what Starfire was doing in Switched):

Azarath= (Dimension of) Peace

Metrion= Quiet

Zinthos= Tranquility

I agree. I don't know who started trhe idea that her real name was Metrion, but it's not true. Raven IS her real name. Her full name would be Raven Roth I'm pretty sure.

So when she's thrashing bad guys and moving everything she shouts, "Peace, Quiet, TRANQUILITY!" ? :D Me not think so. lol

Well, actually yea... that makes a lot of sense. Think about it... Raven needs to focus when she uses her powers.

WhiteNBlack - May 29, 2004 03:02 AM (GMT)
Yeah, I agree with DarkShadows. Even sometimes she shouts it out, thinking she would concentrate more.
