Némesis, filha de Nix (Noite) e de Oceano, representa abstracta e simbolicamente a vingança divina. Tal como as Erínias combate o crime, principalmente o da hybris, que leva os mortais a ultrapassar os limites da condição humana. Não poupa o orgulho dos poderosos, a vaidade dos ricos, a violência dos criminosos.

Nemesis, the daughter of Nyx (Night) and Ocean, abstractly and symbolically represents the divine vengeance. Like the Furies fight crime, especially that of hubris, which leads mortals to overcome the limits of the human condition. Does not save the pride of the powerful, the vanity of the rich, the violence of criminals.
