* ChevhovsGunman: The Grave Digger is first introduced digging a grave in the midst of Athens, claiming that said grave is Kratos' own. [[spoiler:That very same grave is later used by Kratos to escape from the Underworld.]]

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Ares is in a giant form throughout the game. During the FinalBoss, when Kratos opens Pandora's Box, its power causes him to grow to giant size as well, evening the playing field.



* BadDreams: Kratos is constantly plagued by them.

to:

* BadDreams: Kratos is constantly plagued by them. The main reason he works for the gods on a RedemptionQuest is because he hopes the gods will rid him of them.



* {{BFS}}: Halfway through Artemis bestow her Sword to Kratos, which he can use as a secondary, more-powerful weapon which actually inflicts a DiagonalCut on certain enemies. [[spoiler: There's also the Sword of the Gods used to kill Ares, which was actually employed as a giant bridge before.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GoneHorriblyRight: Ares personally took Kratos in and trained him. Then he [[spoiler:duped Kratos into killing his wife and daughter, the only things holding him back from being the perfect killing machine.]] Sadly, he trained Kratos a little ''too'' well, which costs him his life.
-->'''Ares''': That day... I was trying to make you a great warrior!\\
'''Kratos''': You succeeded. [''finishes Ares off'']


Added DiffLines:

* HeroWithBadPublicity: [[AntiHero For a given value of "hero"]]. Due to the past atrocities he's committed, Kratos has a bad reputation, to the extent that people are actually more scared of him than the monsters trying to kill them. When fighting the Hydra, one sailor locks himself in a room and tells Kratos point-blank that he'd rather die than be saved by him. Later, in Athens, one woman is so freaked out by Kratos that she runs away and ends up falling off a balcony to her death.

* {{Mooks}}: Undead Legionnairs and their numberous variations are the standard mooks encountered by Kratos on his quest.

to:

* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: After he saves her, the Oracle of Athens reads Kratos' mind to see the man he truly is... and is horrified to discover that Athena's chosen "hero" is/was a brutal, bloodthirsty Spartan warrior who committed all manner of atrocities.
-->'''Oracle''': By the gods! Why would Athena send one such as you?

Added DiffLines:

* LoneWolfBoss: The very first boss in the game is the Hydra, a monster that has been terrorizing the seas for a long time and has no relation with Ares. Kratos simply fights it while sailing on his way to Athens.


Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: While the game's ending is self-contained, it did leave some clues where the series would go next:
** In the chamber keeping Pandora's Box, there is a painting on the ground showing a warrior defying Zeus. Its significant since the caption says this is a vision of the future and the background music pauses during this time.
** Two of the bonus videos showed Kratos discovering his true heritage and vowing revenge against his real father, and the existence of a brother that he thought had died but sought revenge against him. These two plot points would be later used in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarChainsOfOlympus'' which was developed after the trilogy was concluded, but technically served as a direct sequel to the first game.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In God of War 2, Kratos will have a series of flashbacks of his life while he is being dragged into Hades. One of them is that a [[MsFanservice nude, blonde prostitute]] on a bed [[spoiler: her head [[ExorcistHead violently does a 180]] while speaking with Gaia's voice.]] She is never mentioned again.

* ElaboratedEqualsEffective: The Blades of Chaos start with a rather bland and smooth design, gaining a more vicious and barbed edge with each upgrade as the [[FlamingSword fire trail they leave]] grows brighter and hotter. Also, the Sword of Artemis grows bigger when upgraded, its aura turning from blue to purple to red. The same goes for the undead soldiers, from an half-naked zombie with a rusty sword to a massive, armored warrior DualWielding a broadsword and a scythe.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: If Ares had simply left Kratos to die then he would never have to fight against him. Additionally, if he hadn't sent Kratos on the mission [[spoiler: that resulted in the Spartan killing his wife and daughter]] then he likely would have happily served the god of war and aided him on his campaign against Mount Olympus.
