Christus Victor - Christ has triumphed over death

In the ransom theory, the enemy is Satan
In the satisfaction theory, the enemy is God's wrath
In Christus Victor, the enemy is death.

13When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature,[a] God made you[b] alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.[c] -- Colossians 2:13-15

Everywhere I look, these are described a bit differently, but I think we get the drift so far.
