Death Battle Fanon Wiki

The Gods of Olympus have abandoned me.

Now there is no hope.

~ Kratos' first line in the first game.

You can't stop me! Nothing can!
~ Kratos to the daughter of Thanatos.

Zeus! Your son has returned! I bring the destruction of Olympus!
~ Kratos at the end of God of War II and beginning of God of War III.

The hands of death could not defeat me. The Sisters of Fate could not hold me. And you will not see the end of this day. I will have my revenge!
~ Kratos to Zeus at the beginning of God of War III.

My vengeance ends now.
~ Kratos to Athena at the end of God of War III, before stabbing himself with the Blade of Olympus and releasing the power of Hope onto the earth.

Death can have me when it earns me.
~ Kratos in the Norse games.

Return my son. Or you may meet the god I once was.
~ Kratos threatens Odin.

I came to these lands to escape my past. To start a new life. I can hide no longer. I do not want this war. We have suffered enough. Prophecy did not lead us here. Nor will it win this battle. Wars are won by those that are willing to sacrifice everything. If that is the cost of vengeance... so be it.
~ Kratos's speech before blowing the Gjallarhorn.

Kratos is the main protagonist of the video game series, God of War. He previously fought Spawn in the 10th episode of DEATH BATTLE!Kratos VS Spawn. He also fought Dante in an episode of DBX.

A mighty warrior of Spartan general, a demigod born from the loins of Zeus, Kratos offered life in servitude to Ares to defeat a barbarian horde. But Kratos broke his oath on the day that Ares tricked him into slaughtering his own wife and daughter while burning a temple dedicated to Athena to the ground. After having the white ashes of his deceased family bound to his skin, Kratos sought repentance for his sin. Though Kratos succeeded after ten years of servitude with the final task involving killing Ares, Kratos finds that he would still bear the sin and eventually finds himself waging war against the Olympus itself when Zeus makes an attempt on his life.

As a resident of the militant state of Sparta, Kratos is trained to be tough and heartless while also skilled in various weapons besides the standard weapons used by Spartan warriors. Kratos can also enter a berserk state known as the Rage of Sparta, increasing his speed, striking strength, and durability.

Grecian Arsenal

From his time of servitude to Ares to the end of his war on Olympus, Kratos's fighting style revolves on the use of two falchion-like blades attached to long chains bound to his forearms. Originally Kratos used the Blades of Chaos he was given to Ares before Athena gives him the Blades of Athena to signify his brief status as the new god of war. But when Kratos embarks on his vendetta on Zeus, he is given the Blades of Exile as his current weapon of trade. But Kratos also obtained various weapons and spells from various gods, monsters, and heroes.

  • Power of Hope: This is the reason why Kratos managed to resurrect himself after being killed by Ares in the first game and by Fear Zeus in the third game. Kratos was infused with this power instead of the great evils of Pandora's Box, which enabled him to destroy gods such as Ares. Hope will bring him back no as long as aspects of his mind, such as his body and soul still exist, he will be brought to life against his own will. Even when his entire physical body is entirely destroyed to nothing, not even atoms, as long as his disembodied consciousness exists, he will resurrect.
  • Blades of Chaos/Athena/Exile: With each slice, Kratos drains and gains a portion of the victim's strength and lifeforce making it an effective weapon against enemies stronger than him, as shown in the official and half-canon novel. These pair of blades are painfully connected to the user's arms by a link of searing chains that bond to the wielder. 
  • Oath Stone of Orkos: The power of this stone was gifted to Kratos by the fury Orkos. The powers allow Kratos to summon a shadow clone of himself to perform devastating rage attacks such as summoning a shadow clone to slam the ground, dealing AoE damage. The stone is useful outside combat, such as using it to summon a clone that imitated Kratos' actions like holding down a switch.
  • Amulet of Uroborus: Originally belonging to the oracle Aletheia and stolen from her by Pollux and Castor, Kratos now uses this gem to manipulate time in many ways. Kratos can use this gem to decay or rebuild objects as large as a Titan and manipulate the age of its target. When used in combat, it releases a green sphere that drastically slows anyone caught in it, rendering them helpless.
  • Sun Shield: Probably the better defence item than the Golden Fleece. The shield is small in size like a buckler, but when activated, it emits a larger forcefield that shields Kratos' entire front side from attacks and deflects them as well.
  • Triton's Lance: Although it is useless in combat, it grants Kratos the ability to breathe underwater without any bad effects.
  • Scourge of Erinys: Using the artifact taken after Erinys' death, this magic unleashes a moving dark vortex that follows and sucks in nearby enemies and drains their lifeforce and releases it to Kratos before killing them, effectively healing him. The void can also suck them in, erasing them from existence. The strong pull of the vortex disables enemy movement and draws multiple enemies to the void before exploding. Even armoured enemies and shield wielders are not safe from it, it simply drained their lifeforce like all of its targets.
  • Eyes of Truth: These eyes were literally taken from the oracle Aletheia and placed in a secret place. Kratos found it and used these eyes to dispel any illusion that would trouble him.
  • Poseidon's Rage: Infused with power by the god Poseidon during his battle against a Hydra terrorizing the Aegean Sea, Kratos can surround himself in a circle of electricity while summoning lightning bolts from the sky to strike down his enemies. A stronger variation is the Wrath of Poseidon. The spell is strong enough to destroy foes into atoms, as seen in the God of War novel, leaving corpses into nothing, not even smoke.
  • Head of Euryale: Having acquired the head of Medusa, Kratos can use it to turn his opponents, even other Gorgons, to stone. It can be used effectively as an AoE attack that flash petrifies nearby enemies or fire homing projectiles that petrify nearby enemies. The AoE attack is more effective, it doesn't require the target to look at the head.
  • Blade of Olympus: A sword created by Zeus as a means to siphon a god's powers into the blade. In Kratos's hands, the Blade of Olympus is a weapon able to kill mortals and deities alike. Kratos can use the sword in his Rage of the Gods attack: Slashes his opponent thrice before stabbing through them and dealing the deathblow. Other attacks with the blade include Divine Fury and Divine Reckoning. The blade has the ability to banish opponents to Tartarus, as shown when Zeus banished the Titans to Tartarus.
  • Rage of the Titans: Having been blessed by Gaia with the ashes of Prometheus, Kratos can invoke the fires of the Plume of Prometheus to cover his body. This makes Kratos able to inflict more damage to his opponents with heightened durability. When activated, Kratos dispels any petrification effect on him.
  • Golden Fleece: A armlet that Kratos acquired while on the island of the Fates, able to use it to can block and counter enemy attacks, as well as absorb energy projectiles and throw them back at his attackers. Kratos can also use offensively in his Argo Ram attack, slams his blades on the ground while causing a shockwave.
  • Icarus Wings: Having wrestled them from the maddened Icarus while on the Island of the Fates, Kratos uses the huge 18' wingspan to glide over long distances with the Icarus Ascension ability. However, the wings can slowly fall apart if used for too long.
  • Atlas Quake: Having been given the last of Atlas's power, Kratos can slam the ground to cause worldwide earthquakes while sending giant boulders flying to damage and knockback surrounding enemies.
  • Bow of Apollo: A weapon of Apollo which Kratos acquired while in the Underworld. He uses it to launch a flurry of arrows in rapid succession or to execute the attack Apollo's Inferno, firing three flaming arrows in an arc.
  • Head Of Helios: After decapitating Helios, Kratos uses the god's head as a means to disorientate his opponents in his Solar Flash attack. A stronger variation is the Helios Flare, which has a longer range. It has the ability to reveal invisible objects.
  • Boots of Hermes: Having mercilessly amputated the legs of Hermes and took his greaves as his own, Kratos uses them to dash through an opponent in his Hermes Dash, slamming them in midair while leaving a trail of fire. A stronger variation is Hermes Jest. These boots allow him to run on walls, effectively increasing his maneuverability.
  • Nemean Cestus: Kratos having taken them after killing Hercules, these are weapons are strong enough to destroy walls made of Onyx with ease or shatter the skulls of normal humans.

Nordic Arsenal

After settling his affairs with Zeus and his bloodstained past, Kratos begins his life anew away from Greece in the north. So far, Kratos uses a magical battle axe as his weapon of trade. Additionally, Kratos carries Mimir like an item; as the beheaded (but still alive) Nordic God can provide valuable assistance by giving Kratos advice on how to best his enemies, and warning him of incoming attacks from behind.

  • Leviathan Axe: Kratos' first and primary weapon, it was given to him by his wife Laufey before she died. The axe is designed to oppose the mighty Mjolnir and was forged by the Huldra Brothers, Sindri and Brok. The axe is inscribed with several runes that grant it the ability of ice manipulation, which includes encasing the axe's blade in ice to strengthen attacks with small explosions, a spinning attack of ice that clears out surrounding enemies, unleash an omnidirectional ice shockwave that freezes nearby enemies, fire a continuous beam of freezing energy, create large fields that inflict cold damage to anyone caught in it, send forth a path of massive ice shards and summon a massive blizzard that damages surrounding enemies. Like Mjolnir, the axe can be telekinetically retrieved from any distance when thrown.
  • Guardian Shield: Similar to the Golden Fleece and the Sun Shield from the previous games, the Guardian Shield is a mobile, retractable arm shield that can block and parry melee attacks. As for ranged attacks, the shield can absorb physical and magical attacks and send them back to the enemy. Kratos can perform multiple slam attacks with the shield as well. However, the shield has been damaged by Freya in Ragnarok, forcing Kratos to modify the shield for either offensive or defensive purposes, giving the shield a high degree of versatility.
  • Blades of Chaos: The scarlet letter of Kratos' dark past, he now wields it as a last attempt to save Atreus from a sickness. He wields them in order to help himself in his journey to Helheim, where it is so cold not even Odin or any flame can last in it. They work similarly to the chained blades of the previous games, but they no longer possess the elemental abilities that they had from different Greek gods, manipulating fire as its only element. With the power of fire, Kratos uses these blades to inflict burn DPS on enemies, unleash a quick, fiery short-ranged fire blast, imbue his shield with fire, send out a wave of fire, summon a large pillar of fire beneath multiple targets and rain down fire in a massive area. However, the blades retain their ability to heal Kratos for every slice and strike he makes.
  • Draupnir: A spear bound to Kratos, forged by the Lady of the Forge, stated so by Brok himself. With his skill with a spear back from his Spartan days, Kratos wields this polearm with untold efficiency, as he had learned to use it when he was a child. Draupnir has various magic powers that Kratos can wield on command, such as drilling deep into enemies, and calling about 6 to 8 mini tornadoes that can slow down enemies. It's magical binds to Kratos proves that it can be returned to his side after he throws it about 5 times, effectively giving Kratos an unlimited supply. On his command, the spears sticking into his enemies can explode, sending the opponent flying. It has been the very weapon capable of harming Heimdall by far.
  • Spartan Rage: Just like the other rage abilities of the previous games, Spartan Rage is filled up by attacks, but they have to be barehanded ones. When activated, nearby enemies are sent flying into the air and Kratos cannot use the Leviathan or BoC but relies on his fiery fists to deliver quick and rapid punches. He can also use different attacks such as tearing a large boulder from the ground and throwing it, delivering dash punches and stomping the ground which causes small earthquakes and knocks enemies off their footing. However, in Ragnarok, Kratos can vary his Spartan Rage to either Wrath (in which the weapon he currently wields is unleashed to it's full potential) or Valor (which instantly heals him against grevious wounds)
