Why did Zeus betray Kratos? In fear that Kratos, his son, would overthrow him, Zeus decided to betray and murder him. While Kratos was destroying Rhodes in an effort to be noticed by fellow gods, Zeus drained his godly power and gave life to a nearby statue, which was sent to kill Kratos.
God of War II
Zeus, however, weakened Kratos and tricked him into abandoning his godly powers into the Blade of Olympus, which Zeus used to kill Kratos. Although he overcame all obstacles, Kratos was stunned at Zeus's betrayal and swore revenge as he died. Kratos fell into the Underworld, but was rescued by Gaia.
Zeus claimed that his motivation was to "undo Athena's mistake" (presumably the act of making Kratos a God) and prevent Ares' fate from becoming his own. The King of the Gods then ordered the Spartan to submit, but an outraged Kratos refused, causing Zeus to stab him with the Blade of Olympus.
He learned from a dying Athena that Zeus is, in fact, his father, a fact Zeus kept secret because he wished to avoid a repetition of what he did to his own father, Cronos. Kratos rejected any notion of a relationship and vowed to kill Zeus and destroy Olympus.
While he started off as well intentioned by wanting to kill Ares and imprison Deimos despite his cruel treatment, he eventually became selfish and only wanted to kill Kratos as he was "The Marked Warrior" instead of Deimos or Ares because he knew he would eventually kill him due to the son killing father cycle, rather ...
Ganymede (or Ganymedes) was a young man from Troy. His beauty was unparalleled, and for that reason, Zeus abducted and brought him to Olympus to serve as his cupbearer and lover. Ganymede's myth is an important step in queer history, but there is also a dark side to the story.
Zeus had a cruel side to him, like all gods. A prime example was his punishment towards Prometheus for stealing fire from Olympus by having him strapped to a rock while an eagle ate his liver daily, only for the liver to regrow so as to repeat the torture for all of eternity.
He felt like, once it was all said and done. They did wrong yes. But he also looked at what he had become and lost. He feels regret over killing his own father most of all.
The original God of War, Ares accepted service from Kratos in exchange for destroying his enemies. Under Ares, Kratos committed many violent acts and was eventually tricked into killing his family. This caused the Spartan to seek vengeance against the god, something that was encouraged by the other gods.
I didn't really get why Kratos seemed remorseful for killing him but now I think the reason is just due to the fact that Kratos is the ashamed of the fact that he is a father killer and while Zeus didn't love Kratos, Kratos actually loves Atreus and doesn't want his son knowing that he killed his father because he is ...
Here's every notable Olympian he has been able to cross off his list so far, in chronological order. We'll update this list in the future as Kratos kills more of Greek mythology's most important gods and people, which at current count is 23.
Moreover, Mimir had warned Kratos time and again about Odin's treachery. Thus, Kratos decided that it was in their best interests to not get into any kind of agreement with Odin, having had his fair share of ill experiences with other gods.
Zeus killed Kratos in God of War II (which is why Kratos has to escape from Hell), so it's only natural that Kratos would want to return the favor.
God of War III
After Kratos killed Zeus, the latter also took an astral form, and forced Kratos into his own psyche. Kratos escaped his psyche, however, and successfully battled Zeus' astral form with the power of Hope.
In Greek mythology, Zeus is not killed at all. Zeus is king of the Greek gods and goddesses, a role he takes on after defeating his own father.
However, Kratos returns to life and reclaims his god-powers and status as the God of War before exacting revenge against Zeus, his father, and the Olympians, leaving Kratos as the only surviving Greek God of War (despite trying to commit suicide by impaling himself with the Blade of Olympus to give away the power of ...
Kratos is afraid of being found by others who might know of his deeds. He's afraid of how his legacy will come to affect Atreus, his son, and he's afraid that if the boy knows his history, he'll despise him. Or worse, turn out just like him.
However, as far as confirmed deaths go, Kratos has so far died and been revived a total of three times, mostly during the original trilogy.
He may have been portrayed as a protagonist hero/villain in the God of War Series, but to both Raiden and Fujin, Kratos was nothing but a hero, due to his actions actually saving Eatherrealm.
Despite Hercules animosity towards Kratos, it does appear they were close at some point, as they both address each other as brothers and he is the only Demigod/God Kratos was noticeably reluctant to fight.
The real reason: Zeus was feared Kratos would kill him and take his place just like Zeus did with his father Cronos and continue the cycle. The Logical reason: Kratos was destroying cities and wrecking havoc in Olympus just like Ares was doing in GOW 1.
Kratos actually did not want to kill his older brother, shown by him trying to reason with him. He also told Hercules that he shouldn't strive to be an Olympian, since their time was ending. But he killed him only because he joined the fight, not for personal reasons.
The Greek poet Hesiod related two principal legends concerning Prometheus. The first is that Zeus, the chief god, who had been tricked by Prometheus into accepting the bones and fat of sacrifice instead of the meat, hid fire from mortals. Prometheus, however, stole it and returned it to Earth once again.
The Romans identified her with their own Juno. Hera was worshipped throughout the Greek world and played an important part in Greek literature, appearing most frequently as the jealous and rancorous wife of Zeus and pursuing with vindictive hatred the heroines who were beloved by him.
In today's video, we're going to discuss Nyx, a primordial deity and the personification of night, one of the most powerful goddesses, if not the most powerful goddess, in all of Greek mythology.
