Arceus (Japanese: アルセウス Arceus) is a major character from Arceus and the Jewel of Life. Its Japanese voice actor is Akihiro Miwa.

Arceus made its debut in Arceus and the Jewel of Life. Thousands of years in the past, when the world was threatened by a meteor, Arceus summoned all its power and tackled the massive rock, destroying it. However, in the process Arceus lost the sixteen Plates that gave it life and began to die. At this time it met Damos, who found one of the missing Plates and returned it, giving Arceus strength to pull back the others and recover fully. In gratitude for Damos's actions, Arceus detached five of its Plates and formed the Jewel of Life, which it loaned to him in order to make the desolate wasteland of Michina Town rich and fertile.

Arceus did, however, stipulate that the Jewel of Life had to be returned. The date was the next solar eclipse - an event that was a harbinger of Arceus's appearance - but when Arceus appeared to reclaim the Jewel, Damos viciously attacked it with the intent to kill. Arceus managed to fight off the attack and counter, killing Damos, then it went into a deep sleep, vowing to judge humanity when it next appeared.

Its next appearance came in the era of Ash and his friends, in which it appeared in Michina Town and began passing down its Judgment to destroy the city. Sheena attempted to return the Jewel of Life in this era but unwittingly gave it a fake, making it even angrier. When the dragon trio appeared to protect the world from Arceus, Palkia restrained it while Dialga sent the heroes back in time to Damos's betrayal.

In the ancient past the group discovers that Damos was controlled by another man, Gishin, who had grown bitter with his belief that returning the Jewel of Life to Arceus would result in Michina Town once again becoming desolate and wished to destroy it to prevent such events. By manipulating Sheena, Gishin nearly succeeded in killing Arceus and permanently altering the fabric of spacetime, but with Damos's help the group managed to save Arceus and defeat Gishin, thus abating Arceus's rage.
