Padre Destino is a fictional character in the vehicle action series Vigilante 8.


Padre Destino was a member of the Drifters and a doomsday prophet, who had time and time again been wrong about his belief of the world coming to an end. When proven wrong, he simply changed the date of the event and carried on preaching, completely undeterred. Prior to the events of Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense, Padre has once again failed in his predictions of a chaotic world's end, causing him to lose almost all of the members of his sect, which he referred to as his "Flock." Convinced in his beliefs but unable to prove them to the world, he set out to force the Armageddon himself, by any means necessary.


Destino's Destruction

Padre Destino's death by the might of Leviathan in his ending in Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense.

In his ending, Padre is standing upon what looks to be an active volcano. He chants scripture from a mysterious book within his hand and opens up the cloudy sky above, revealing a strange entity referred to as "the Leviathan." With a confused grunt, Destino looks upon the face of his demise as a strike of lightning kills him in an instant.

Special WeaponEdit

  • Padre Destino's name in English translates to "Father Destiny."
