  • African mythology
    • The Gods of Olympus are minor protagonists-turned-main antagonists in the God of War Greek-era.
    • This group consists of about 33 Gods.
    • 2Known Gods of Olympus. In the Greek Era of the God of War series, at least one deity had some sort of evil intent, whether it be to destroy the world because of their lonely misery, or kill the mortal Kratos who is haunted by the painful loss of his whole family.
    • They first appeared as the main allies of Kratos, granting him powerful magics and weapons throughout his journey.
    • After the death of Callisto and Deimos and followed by Zeus' treachery, Kratos allies with Titans to obtain revenge against Zeus and the Gods who betrayed him, declaring war on the rest of Olympus as well.
    • While able to sustain greater levels of damage compared to humans, Gods can die of injuries just like mortals.
  • Arabian mythology
    • (Athena died with a stab, Hephastus, died after being impaled by his anvil, Hera died by having Kratos break her neck) By God of War III, they are the main group of antagonists whom Kratos kills, one after another.
  • Armenian mythology
    • After the destruction of Olympus, the few Gods left alive from Kratos' genocidal rampage are either killed by the Titans or perished in the ensuing Chaos.
  • Aztec mythology
    • Many of the gods are indistinguishable from humans in appearance, although some gods do look extremely different façade wise.
    • When a God dies, a cataclysm is unleashed that is sometimes called a plague.
    • The plague is based on what the god personifies like deluge (Poseidon the water god), swarms of pests (Hermes), the sun being blocked out by the clouds in the sky (Helios being the sun god), and the souls of the dead escaping (Hades who rules the Underworld).
    • The weaker gods such as Ceryx, however, die without any major consequences.
    • (it is possible that these events are not major enough to warrant much attention).

  • Egyptian mythology
    • Throughout history, war deities have played important roles in many mythologies and cultures around the world.
    • Almost every mythology and religion in the world has single or multiple deities associated with war.
    • In this article, we’ve listed some of the most well-known or important war gods representing several religions including Sumerian, Japanese, Greek, Maori, Roman, Persian, Norse, Celtic and Egyptian religions.
    • God of War returned to much critical and commercial success with 2018’s video game titled the same as the series’ name.
    • The game brought along new gods to add to the mythology of the storyline, which meant new gods for Kratos to lock horns with.
    • Previously, we had an abundance of gods show up when the series was focused on the Greek gods, and they were all taken out by Kratos.
    • Some gods were more powerful than others, and these would play the role of the main antagonists of the various games Kratos was featured in.
    • RELATED: Things You Never Knew About God Of War’s Theme Song And Music.
    • Whenever you think of God of War, your mind goes to all the different ways Kratos has ended the lives of his victims – these include almost all the gods from Greece.
    • Since Kratos is the main character, it’s obvious he’ll come out on top, but that doesn’t mean the gods he fought were weak by any means.
    • These gods were of different aspects as well; all of them controlled some element key to the world, and their demises by God of War III meant that the Greek world was no longer active.
    • With Kratos now destined to play a part in Ragnarok, which is meant to be showcased in the following God of War games, you can bet many more Norse gods will be showing up as well.
  • Etruscan mythology
    • That said, we're only including characters Kratos has fought or have actually appeared physically in the games.
    • So, major characters like Morpheus from Chains of Olympus or Artemis sadly don't quite make the cut since they never appeared in the flesh at any point.
  • Fijian mythology
    • Updated July 27, 2021 by Jacob Buchalter: With God of War Ragnarok getting delayed until 2022 and the enhancement update for God of War (2018) that gave more performance options for PS5 players, now seems like a good time to take another look back at all the icons of Greek and Norse mythology that Kratos has wiped from this realm.
  • Greek mythology
    • Originally, this list didn't contain Titans, but, considering they were the Gods before the Olympic Gods, and Demi-God warriors were already included, a few have been handpicked to add to the rankings.
    • We've also gone through and gone a bit into the specific special abilities each character has in the God of War franchise.
    • Disclaimer: For those seeing a lot of repeats in the "Supernatural Abilities" sections for characters, Immortality basically means they're a god, Superhuman Abilities means they have god-like durability, strength, and so on, and anything marked with "Extreme" is a trait that seems to exceed what even the Gods usually have.
    • Game Debut: God of War (2018) . Supernatural Abilities: Immortality, Superhuman Abilities, Innate Language Powers, Mind/Emotion Reading .
    • Historical Background: Norse Mythology as Loki the Trickster God .
    • A lot happened between the end of God of War 3 and the start of God of War (2018).
    • But, the biggest changes were Kratos' new calmer temperament, the change in location, and the appearance of Kratos' son, Atreus.
    • It was shown at the end of 2018’s God of War that Atreus was fated to be the one to take down all of Asgard one day; however, for the time being, he’s still just a kid and his powers are nothing compared to the rest of the gods we’ve seen.
    • He's coming into his own as a god, only having just found out he is one, and it'll be interesting to see how his future abilities blend Norse concepts with Greek ones.
    • As of yet, Atreus has only shown himself to be great with a bow and arrow, durable as a demi-god/lesser god as well as having enough skills to take down a number of monsters.
    • Those are mad skills for a child, and he’ll only grow with power as the years go on, and here's hoping those rumors about him being playable in the sequel, God of War: Ragnarok, turn out to be true.
    • THEGAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY. Game Debut: God of War .
    • Supernatural Abilities: Superhuman Life-Span, Superhuman Abilities, A collection of Godly Artifacts .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as the Legendary Hero who killed the Gorgon Medusa .
    • Despite being the brother of Kratos (which, as you'll find out, is one of many brothers), Perseus held no qualms in his attempts to take Kratos’ life.
    • From what we saw of him, he must have been a great warrior seeing as he had gotten quite far in his quest to find the Sisters of Fate.
    • But this quest seems to have driven the guy over the edge, and his dependence on his god-given artifacts doesn't fully compensate for his less-than-superhuman physical abilities.
    • Perseus’ weaponry was incredible in that he could cause Kratos to lose his focus through blinding light; he could become invisible; he could also throw projectiles and slow down time.
    • All this weaponry was used in tandem, but Perseus’ strength and speed were still no match for Kratos.
  • Hawaiian mythology
    • Basically, he's a fairly capable warrior who had a bunch of toys way above his pay scale, and it shows.
    • Game Debut: God of War . Supernatural Abilities: Astral Projection, Superhuman Abilities, Immortality, Supernatural Attraction, Beauty Pacification .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as the Goddess Of Love .
    • The only power Aphrodite ever displayed was the ability to turn Medusa’s head into a weapon for Kratos.
    • After that, she disappeared until God of War III, where all she did was attempt to seduce Kratos and save her own skin.
    • This is why Aphrodite shows up near the bottom as we only know of her status as a God, meaning she must have all the standard powers they have, but her specific powers are a complete mystery.
    • In fact, no one even knows what became of her as this scene with her in God of War III is the last she's ever been seen.
    • In battle, Aphrodite is likely quite weak.
    • Game Debut: God of War: Chains of Olympus .
    • Supernatural Abilities: Unknown, but very likely the same powers as her brother, Helios .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as the Titan Goddess of the Dawn .
    • Eos didn’t showcase any of her powers in her lone appearance in God of War: Chains of Olympus, but she was still the only god left standing when all others had been put to slumber by Morpheus.
  • Hittite mythology
    • This shows that she must have some enhanced resilience compared to the other gods.
    • Being the sister of Helios, it can be assumed she shares powers and traits with her brother, which would mean she can control aspects of the sun.
  • Hungarian mythology
    • But, with her brother's disappearance, her powers quickly dwindled.
  • Japanese mythology
    • It's unclear if the same would happen to Helios if Eos disappeared, but after he dies in God of War III, we can only assume she slowly faded from existence not long after.
    • Game Debut: God of War III . Supernatural Abilities: Control over plants, Teleportation, Superhuman Abilities, Immortality .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as the Queen of Olympus and Goddess of Marriage .
  • Lusitanian mythology
    • It only took a simple snap of the neck for Kratos to take Hera’s life.
    • Typically, Hera is envisioned as the Goddess of Law and Marriage, but for some reason, the team at Santa Monica Studio's retconned her into the Goddess of plant life as well, as her demise immediately caused all plant life in the world to die.
  • Māori mythology
    • This would mean Hera had abilities tied to nature, making her indeed quite powerful.
  • Maya mythology
    • Most other media portraying Hera puts her on almost equal footing to Zeus in fact.
  • Mesopotamian mythology
    • However, we never saw her display any of these powers and all she did was gloat in Kratos’ face, so this is as far as this version of her is able to go.
    • Game Debut: God of War III . Supernatural Abilities: Pyrokinesis, Superhuman Abilities, Gigantic Size, Immortality, Electrokinesis, Supernatural Smithing Abilities .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as the Craftsman God and God of Fire and Volcanoes .
    • All the gods came to Hephaestus to forge their greatest weapons, and he remained in good standing with Zeus until Kratos overcame Pandora’s temple.
    • Hephaestus’ alchemy was such that he created a sentient being in Pandora, who would eventually become the key to ending Zeus himself.
    • His knack for creating weaponry meant he could basically create something out of almost nothing.
    • And, with his immunity to fire/magma and elemental affinities, Hephaestus had all the qualities of a truly powerful god, except for combat prowess, which is why he's this low in the rankings.
    • Game Debut: God of War II .
    • Supernatural Abilities: Superhuman Life-Span, Water/Ice Control, Superhuman Abilities, Ability to summon Erebus Minotaurs .
  • Native American mythology
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as a Legendary Greek Hero and son of Poseidon .
    • It was unfortunate for the son of Poseidon that he came across Kratos when he was old and past his prime, or else he might’ve fared better.
  • Norse mythology
    • Theseus was a great warrior of Greece and he certainly lived up to the billing by giving Kratos a good fight.
    • As the son of the King of the Sea, Theseus had some ice/water controlling abilities as well.
    • He also had summoning powers which made him able to call out Minotaurs to do his bidding, which makes sense since slaying a Minotaur is what he's known for.
    • But, In the end, Theseus was just too old and inexperienced to truly test Kratos to his limits.
    • Game Debut: God of War (2018) . Supernatural Abilities: Immortality, Superhuman Abilities, Excessive Strength, Electrokinesis .
  • Nuristani mythology
    • Historical Background: Norse Mythos as Thor’s two children who will survive Ragnarok .
  • Polynesian mythology
    • Kratos was a lot weaker in 2018’s God of War than he had been in earlier installments.
  • Roman mythology
    • He's tired, doesn't have most of his array of godly artifacts, and uses a magical ax rather than his tried-and-true chain blades.
    • But, even in his prime, these two sons of Thor would still have likely given Kratos a bit of a hard time.
    • Their electric manipulating abilities are troublesome even if they're on a way smaller scale than their fathers, and the physical strength of the sibling duo should not be underestimated.
    • And, in a 2v2 versus Kratos and Atreus, it was a very good fight, where the father and son duo had to bring out the best in themselves to defeat them.
    • Game Debut: God of War: Ascension . Supernatural Abilities: Superhuman Abilities, Immortality, Shape-Shifting, Illusion Conjuring, Parasite Secretion, Ink/Black Goo Creation, Black Magic, Creature Summoning, .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as deities that work for Hades and oversee punishment of specific sins .
    • The Three Fury sisters are the ones that serve as the main antagonists of God of War: Ascension.
    • They're pretty unique characters with abilities that easily put them on par or above some of the lesser gods.
    • Granted, the God of War series takes a very unique spin on these characters, changing up a lot about their designs and abilities, but these deviations are also the reason they're so memorable, thinking back on it.
  • Semitic mythology
    • To go into each sister individually:.
    • First up is Megara, Goddes of Jealousy who looks a lot different from the usual representations of the character.
    • This version of her has spider limbs coming out of her back and the ability to summon a swarm of insect-like parasites that infect and corrupt flesh.
    • Then comes Tisiphone, the Goddess of Murder in charge of those who commit acts of murderous vengeance including patricide or matricide.
    • Tisiphone is the illusionist of the group, constantly hiding within her illusions before stealthily attacking her target from behind using her black magic pet Daimos.
  • Slavic mythology
    • Last up is Alecto, leader of the sisters, Goddess of Anger, and the Fury who can turn into a giant sea Kraken for some reason.
    • Who knows, but she can also use black goo (probably ink) to restrain someone even as strong as Kratos, and seems to be the most all-around capable of the three.
    • Game Debut: God of War: Chains of Olympus . Supernatural Abilities: Immortality, Superhuman Abilities, Domain Over Souls, Telekinesis, Flight, Energy Manipulation .
    • Historical Background: Greek Mythos as the Goddess of Spring and Queen of the Underworld .
    • Being the wife of Hades, Persephone is technically the Queen of the Underworld, yet she didn’t have nearly as much power as her husband.
  • Vodou
    • And, Kratos' fight against her compared to many of the other god-vs-god showdowns throughout the franchise is pretty weak.
    • RELATED: God Of War PS4: Easter Eggs You’ll Only Notice On A Replay.
    • However, Kratos still needed the Gauntlet of Zeus to end her life, meaning Persephone was still a durable as any other god.
