Zeus, the king of the gods in Greek mythology, is famously wicked. He lies and cheats, especially when it comes to tricking women into infidelity. Zeus consistently doles out harsh punishments to those who act against his will - regardless of their merit. And although some characters from Greek mythology arguably deserve to be put in their place, most of Zeus's punishments are way out of line.

The messed up things Zeus has done usually involve extreme circumstances, and humans are not his only prey. The deity is responsible for some of the most over-the-top punishments in Greek mythology.
