Zankou is a powerful
demonon the television series" Charmed". He is portrayed by Oded Fehr.
The Source incarcerated him, most likely because Zankou is a very powerful demon, extremely difficult to vanquish, and can match (if not best) The Source in strength. After The Source dies for good, a group of demons freed him, because of the threat of The Avatars.cite episode|episodelink=Witchness Protection|title=Witchness Protection|series=Charmed|serieslink=Charmed|airdate=2004-11-28|network=The WB Television Network|The WB] His powers include: emitting bee-like particles, fiery
teleportation, energy blasts, regeneration, energy balls, telekinesis, fireball, shapeshifting, prescience, absorption of demonic powers, resurrecting the dead, and quite possibly others. He is also notoriously intelligent, arguably one of the most intelligent demons to have appeared on the program. Additionally, unlike most demons, Zankou seems to have a good understanding of human nature, enough to be able to successfully attack the Charmed Ones psychologically.
He helped the Charmed Ones in their fight with the Avatars along with Leo and Kyle.cite episode|episodelink=Charmageddon|title=Charmageddon|series=Charmed|serieslink=Charmed|airdate=2005-01-30|network=The WB Television Network|The WB] After the threat of the Avatars had passed, Zankou began to mobilize the
Underworldin hopes to control it. He attempted to steal the Book of Shadows on various occasions. He even hired a demonic alchemist to brainwash resurrected zombieinnocents that the Charmed Ones were previously unable to save into attacking them.cite episode|episodelink=Death Becomes Them|title=Death Becomes Them|series=Charmed|serieslink=Charmed|airdate=2005-05-15|network=The WB Television Network|The WB] Because their emotions are tied to the Book of Shadows, when they became vulnerable, so did the Book, allowing Zankou to steal it. Using the spells in the Book of Shadows, Zankou first stole Phoebe's power of premonition so that he could anticipate their attacks and see what they were doing to try to stop him.
Zankou is vanquished when the Charmed Ones recite a spell to destroy the Nexus while it is inside him.cite episode|episodelink=Something Wicca This Way Goes|title=Something Wicca This Way Goes|series=Charmed|serieslink=Charmed|airdate=2005-05-22|network=The WB Television Network|The WB]
