Zeus is king of the gods and patriarch of many in Greek Mythology. Traditionally bearded and occasionally able to shoot thunderbolts, Zeus is also known for his many affairs, often by taking the form of wildlife. His siblings included Hades and Poseidon. His children include Athena, Artemis, Hermes, Hercules, Apollo and Dionysus.

Though conspicuously absent from The StoryTeller: Greek Myths, others connected to Zeus were featured, including his daughter Persephone and sons Perseus (with the mortal Danae) and Minos.

Zeus appeared on Muppets Tonight. In a "Thor, God of Thunder" sketch from episode 108, the two deities battle it out in a library and vaporize Ernest Pleth.

In Roman Mythology, Zeus is known as Jupiter.
