Bacchus is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[]

Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you may die. None adhere more vigorously to this creed than Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine, lewd behavior, and madness.

After spending much of his formative years with his impressively intoxicated mentor Solinus, whom Bacchus loves like a father, the God of Wine is now a wanderer and teacher. He's journeyed across all of Asia, through India, and finally back to Rome, spreading the “Mysteries of the Vine,” a ritual involving incredible amounts of wine to lower inhibitions, freeing one from social constraints, oppression of gender, sexual taboos, and the stresses of life. Quite the successful ritual, if ever there was one.

Much of this ritual seems to have come from Solinus, who is widely known to have vast, secret knowledge and the ability to predict the future, though only while completely drunk. The king Midas, covetous of this knowledge, captured Solinus, endeavoring to extract it by providing the scholar the finest food, drink, and entertainment he could muster. Bacchus finally tracked down his mentor in the court of Midas and discovered him well fed and cared for. Quickly, Midas lied, claiming Solinus had been lost and the king had taken him in. Seeing through the ruse, Bacchus offered the monarch a boon. Midas asked that anything he touched be turned to gold. Without hesitation, Bacchus granted this. He tested his new gift on a twig and stone and found them turned completely to gold. Elated, Midas called a feast, but found his food turned to gold in his hands and his daughter solidified at his touch. Starving and crazed, Midas begged Bacchus to remove the “gift.” Bacchus acquiesced, allowing the greedy king to wash his hands in the Pactolus river. As the golden touch left his hands, the river sands transformed to glittering gold.

Of course, the product of continuous overindulgence in alcohol and deviant behavior, Bacchus could simply be insane.

Abilities[]

Passive - Drunk-O-Meter
Bacchus loves the drink and as Bacchus drinks from his jug, he becomes more intoxicated, gaining Buffs when he gets Tipsy and Smashed. Bacchus also celebrates when he kills an enemy god, giving him 10% on his meter. Notes:

Trivia[]

General[]

  • Bacchus' Greek counterpart Dionysus, was one of the twelve olympians along with Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hephaestus, Hera, Hermes, Poseidon, Zeus and either him or Hestia.
  • Originally Bacchus was going to be released as his Greek counterpart, Dionysus, judging by some of the files in the game still referring to him as such.
  • The actor who voiced Bacchus, Chris Rager, also voiced Soldier of Fortune/Hired Gun Ares and Life's a Beach Geb.
  • In June of 2017, Bacchus received a remodel changing his Default, Regal Reveler, Enemy and Mastery skins. His Brynhildr, Father Chrishmash, The King, and Hoot 'n Holler preserved Bacchus' old 3D model and animation.
  • Bacchus' default taunt and joke voicelines change depending on how much of his Drunk-O-Meter is filled, becoming more slurred and rowdy.
  • One of his jokes ▶️"I don't often drink wine, but when I do- No, wait, I always drink wine!" is a reference to the Dos Equis advertisements.
  • One of Bacchus' idle animations resembles him doing a Field Sobriety Test, specifically the one-leg-stand test and the finger-to-nose test.
