Cheats and Walkthroughs
After slaughtering the entire pantheon Gods, a plethora of ancient heroes, and a whole zoo of mythological creatures in three God Of War console titles and two handheld games, there are only so many enemies left that Kratos can rip the head from in his newest adventure, God of War: Ascension.
As we all know, Ascension looks back at Krato’s younger years before he became the bloodthirsty, badass that he is today. But this also means that the Gods, heroes, and creatures he meets in the new game cannot coincide with the ones he kills later on. If Timecop has taught us anything, messing with the past is never a good idea.
Whoever the soon-to-be Ghost of Sparta strangles and eventually kills with his bare hands this time around, they cannot make any sort of impact to the story moving forward. This means Hercules gets a free pass and Hades can breathe a little easier since they bite the big one later in the series. So who’s left for Kratos to rip apart piece by bloody piece? Plenty.
Here are some of our picks for mythological creatures and heroes who might meet their terrible fate at the hands of young Kratos.
Typon and Echidna - "Mother of Monsters"
When you happen to be half nymph, half snake and you’re hubby, Typon, just happens to be one of the titans of old, you’re kids are most likely going to be a little messed up. On Mother’s Day, she gets calls from Cerberus, the three-headed mutt of Hades; the Chimera, the fire breathing lion, goat, and snake monstrosity you encounter in God of War III; as well as the dreaded hydra. Let’s not get into the baby shower you have to throw for those things. The lady with the pretty face and the dad with eyes of fire sure have some ugly kids.
But these kids are famous. Echidna, not to be confused with the little animal, brings not just herself but a whole army to get in the way of our anti-hero in training. Better yet, many of her offspring never make it to any of the later games. You might have taken out Cerberus, but what ever happened to his two-headed brother, Orthrus? A young Kratos could learn this monster taming skills from taking on this slightly lesser beast.
