* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHaveIBecome: In a rare moment of self-awareness, Kratos, at the sight several butchered bodies, quietly reflects on what he's become.
--> '''Kratos''': [''horrified tone''] By the gods... what have I become?

* DirtyBusiness: When forced to push a caged human sacrifice up a cliff, listening to him scream for mercy the entire way, Kratos is openly disgusted.

* TheAtoner[=/=]RedemptionQuest: Subverted to a point. Kratos may be on a RedemptionQuest, but it's only because he wants to be able to sleep at night without being assaulted by memories of the awful deeds he has committed in the past, including [[spoiler: murdering his own wife and child]]. He has no qualms about slaughtering just about everybody he encounters, either.

* AccidentalMurder: Kratos accidentally killed his wife and [[OffingOnesOffspring daughter]] while attacking a village of Athena's worshippers under Ares' orders; Ares in fact orchestrated the event, believing that it would free Kratos to be the perfect warrior.

* SpecialEffectFailure: At one point in the game, you must offer a human sacrifice using a soldier in a cage. During the introductory cutscene, the soldier is shown to be very clearly undead, with green skin and making hissing sounds. After returning to gameplay, the soldier is normal and pleading for help.
