|“||Giant Scythe class for the Archfiend of Earnestness. Crowd control using short-range attacks and mid-range tornado.||”|
|— In-game description.|
RottenLee Ravenous is one of the seven Dark Heroes, being the fourth Dark Hero to be revealed. He wears a mask modeled in the stylised shape of a raven's head, with a blue beak and feathers. His main weapon of choice is a scythe; more specifically, the Great Mighty Scythe.
PersonalityRottenLee Ravenous is linked to the Archfiend of Earnestness and represents the deadly sin of Greed, explaining his resemblance to a raven (an allusion to the common raven's propensity to hoard shiny objects). In game, he exhibits numerous avaricious tendencies; taking hostage of Mecha Hoshipon, for example, and calling it his "Rare Item", as well as frequently inquiring if something is rare. Although, in theme with the dichotomy of vice vs. virtue explored in-game, he also somewhat represents charity; as he directed the Ziggerzank to aid the Patapons in the battle, an arguably selfless gesture.
As the story progresses, it is revealed that he is the Zigoton general Gong The Hawkeye. The Archfiend of Earnestness had convinced him to don the mask, citing that if he did not accept it, someone greedy would take it in his stead. Gong accepted - begrudgingly - and was made a Dark Hero (ostensibly against his will). As his memory is recovered, he challenges the Uberhero to a final duel and loses. He then takes leave, sending the blueprints for an upgraded Ziggerzank to a nearby Zigoton outpost in order to assist the Patapons. The following stage has similar features to the mission "Parabola of Hope" from Patapon 2, with the Zigotons arrive controlling an enhanced version of the Ziggerzank to assist the player's units through the level.
Ravenous has a Class Skill that releases tornadoes when using the PonChaka~PonPon songs and even create fire tornadoes. He is the best crowd control unit in Dark Hero Mode, as he can use his tornadoes to hold enemies in place and inflict high damage.
Ravenous can use Greatswords, Axes, Clubs and Scythes from unlocking.
Ravenous can equip 5 Set Skills.
Uberhero Mode: Gong Tornado

- Ravenous and Oohoroc have a set skill that, while with different names, gives the same bonus (Samurai Soul and Weapon +3, respectively).
- In Japanese, kamaitachi (鎌イタチ) literally means scythe weasel.
- Depending on the game's region, Ravenous' Scythe slightly varies in appearance.
- Ravenous' Hero mode attack has the largest range out of all attacks in Patapon 3, even surpassing Ganodias' Ultimate Destruction Cannon and Zaknel's Earthquake, as Gong's Tornado also hits enemies in the air and not just the ground, making it hard to dodge using the jump command.
- When Patapon 3 was in development it seems that Ravenous' signature scythe was The Deathsoul Scythe.
- If you chosen the right answer in the cutscene after mission Ravenous: Duel of Fate the Ziggerzank will come to aid you, but if you chose other answer you'll complete the battle by yourself.
