At the beginning of each mission you are told to pick one of the five gods as your patron for that mission, and they will bless you with rewards. The game has a total of five different endings and 45 different levels for each god, inviting a lot of multiple playthroughs.

playthroughs. Even still, each god will bless you with a new spell at the end of each one of their missions, with said spells being either BoringButPractical (healing, energy blasts, elemental spells) to insane feats of CrazyAwesome magical power (such as summomning entire whirlwinds and creating ''active volcanoes''.)

* DevilInPlainSight: In his introduction Statos says plainly that in a civilized world he would be the only god. Then when it becomes clear in the next mission that one of the gods is plotting against the others nobody even considers he might be involved. It turns out he was behind it all along.
** Not to mention he's portrayed by Creator/TimCurry, one of the most typecast villain actors ever.

* HeadsIWinTailsYouLose: If you finish as one of the good guys, you can pick either to do Persephone's or James' last mission. [[spoiler:James survives either way, and Persephone apparently dies either way, making her the only god that doesn't survive in any ending. AndThereWasMuchRejoicing.]]

* VideogameCaringPotential: Several missions reward you for caring more than the mission parameters require you to. Most famously, the mission in which you're sent to slay a troublesome dragon rewards you really well for taking the time to find out why the dragon is behaving the way it is and coming up with a better solution.

** Once the war actually becomes reality, Persephone tries to avoid making the gods killing each other. Her attempts to make Charnel, Pyro and Stratos see reason go... Altogether less than well.

* GoodIsNotSoft: James may be the most reluctant god to ''enter'' the war, but once it becomes inevitable he's the first 'good' god to suggest you ''end'' it by killing Pyro and Charnel.



* OnlySaneMan: James has elements of this. While the other gods are busy trying to kill each other, especially after a [[SelfFulfillingProphecy prophecy]] warns that one of their number is plotting to [[KilledOffForReal kill the rest off for real]], only poor James wonders if they should give all the fighting a rest.

* StoryBranching: Each time the gods offer Eldred a selection of missions, the player's choice affects the plot and Eldred's role in it; the missions that are passed up can not be gone back to later, and every few missions one of the gods will stop offering Eldred work, making that god's later missions inaccessible for the current playthrough. The branches don't go off in completely different directions, though; certain key plot events will always happen whether Eldred is present for them or not, and it always ends up with Eldred having only one god still talking to him and having to go out and face Marduk in a final showdown.
