** There's a notable shortage of bosses when compared to the rest of the games. Not counting enemy type intros, there're only three: the Hydra at the beginning - which works as a tutorial boss - and the mechanical minotaur and Ares piled at the end. Compare that to GodOfWarII's ''fourteen'' bosses.

Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: After beating the hydra, you hear a cry for help and find the captain inside the monster's throat hanging on for dear life. Kratos pulls him up, rips off his necklace, and then drops him to his death. His pointless cruelty establishes that you're ''not'' playing a good guy.

* AntagonistTitle: [[BigBad Ares]] is the titular god of war. [[spoiler:Until the ending, that is.]]



* BigBad: Ares, the eponymous god of war.



* DespairEventHorizon: Kratos crosses it after being told that, despite what he believed, [[spoiler:the gods cannot or will not take away his nightmares.]] Subsequent games strongly imply that he never truly recovers.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Most of the Gods have been redesigned after this game (Poseidon was originaly a bald old guy, Hades had a demon face, etc).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The gravedigger, implied to be Zeus in disguise, addresses Kratos as "my son" several times. [[spoiler:The sequel reveals that Zeus is, in fact, Kratos' father.]]



* ImprobableAimingSkills: Ares impales Kratos by throwing a giant column all the way through the city of Athens and the Desert of Lost Souls; ending up at exactly the same place where the entrance to temple, and by extension Kratos, are (Said temple is constantly being transported by Cronos on his back, making this feat even more ridiculous).

Possibly justified, as Ares is a god.

* WhatHaveIBecome: In a rare moment of self-awareness, Kratos, at the sight several butchered bodies, quietly reflects on what he's become.
