The Gods of Olympus have abandoned me, now there is no hope!
~ Kratos (seeking retribution against the Olympian Gods).

The Gods of Olympus are minor protagonists-turned-main antagonists in the God of War Greek-era. This group consists of about 33 Gods.


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. (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. 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.

Known Gods of Olympus

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)
