Ive always found these two beings incredibly fascinating, and their depictions in Hellboy are nicely mysterious...but you know, gotta ask. So where would you rank them? Personally no idea

I've always been a big fan of these two figures as well, but I didn't watch Hellboy so I guess I'm only posting to say thank you for referencing mythological entities that I really enjoy 🤔

Hellboy comics can be pretty vague in terms of power.  Mignola is more interested in the horror and mystery of his characters as opposed to making ultra powerful entities.

That and power is 2nd to narrative and destiny in the Mignola-verse. Characters make it until "Their time", most monsters are handled with Stone-Hand punches to the mouth.

For example, as many big baddies as we've seen Red take down, he hinself got killed by a dagger in the back from Koschei the Deathless. Just a knife toss ended him.
