In Aztec mythology, Tezcatlipoca ("smoking mirror") was the god of the night, the north and temptation. He owned a mirror that gave off smoke, killing his enemies. He was antithesis and rival of Quetzalcoatl. He was a god of beauty and war. He sacrificed a foot to Cipactli.

He kidnapped Xochiquetzal, the goddess of flowers, because he felt that he deserved her more than her husband, Tlaloc. He was also said to be married to Xilonen.

As Mixcoatl, Tezcatlipoca invented fire by rotating the heavens on its axes as a drill. Omacatl and Titlacauan were also aspects of Tezcatlipoca.
