  • You get 192.96875% more Gold.png Gold with his first 4 upgrades.
  • Upon getting Wepwawet.png Wepwawet's final upgrade, Way of Kings, Midas' base DPS will increase by a whopping 10,000,000,000% (10 billion percent), making him and 6betty.png Betty Clicker the 2 best heroes for the late-middle game.
  • King Midas with Wepwawet.png Wepwawet's upgrade is the best character until you get him to 12550 (If you also upgrade Wepwawet.png Wepwawet to 5000), as Wepwawet.png Wepwawet can beat his DPS (as he will still earn 10 damage multipliers).
  • King Midas's upgrades are extremely important for earning more gold, and give approximately 193% gold bonus(192.96875%) as stated above, so it is recommended to get his upgrades, so you can get more gold, as thus unlock more upgrades, heroes and move through the game faster.


  • Midas was a king of Phrygia who, according to Greek mythology, possessed the power to turn whatever he touched into gold.
  • For players who have not transcended yet before it got removed, there is an Ancient Thusia.png Thusia whose description mentions Midas: Midas walks with you to greet this ancient, and shows you his purse. As you get closer, the cloth material the purse if made out of gets harder. Suddenly, you could swear it turned into leather. "Upgrading this ancient will probably make it harder to kill Treasure Chests. I would leave this one alone," Midas says. "It sounds worthless to me."
  • This hero, Ivan and The Maw are the only heroes in the game to have 6 upgrades rather than the standard 4 or 5.
