* ActorAllusion: The voice actor playing Perseus is Harry Hamlin, who of course was Perseus in ''ClashOfTheTitans''. The game character even sports the same costume and, when first met, has dialog that seems to indicate he's come straight from the movie. Sadly, since he's meeting Kratos, it appears poor Andromeda will be eaten by the Kraken after all... but Kratos kills ''that'', too.
** Carole Ruggier, who plays the character of Athena [[TheOtherDarrin in the first two games]], also plays Athena in the ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'' RTS.
** Kevin Sorbo shows up in God of War 3. [[HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys Take a guess as to who he voices.]]
** In the Japanese version, (and also overlaps with RelationshipVoiceActor), [[Creator/TesshoGenda Kratos]], [[Creator/MamiKoyama Hera]] and [[YurikaHino Aphrodite's]] voice actors already worked together in an anime series who also involves [[SaintSeiya the Greek Mythology]].
** Also, Creator/YukoKaida, who voiced Persephone in Japanese, also voiced [[NamesTheSame another Persephone]] in VideoGame/WildArms5
** Were it not for becoming CutContent, Creator/CamClarke [[WhatCouldHaveBeen would have voiced]] Hercules in the second game. Clarke had only a few years earlier voiced [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia a different Kratos]].
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** T.C. Carson ([[Series/LivingSingle Kyle Barker]], [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Mace Windu]]) is Kratos.
** Creator/CoreyBurton is Zeus in the second and third game. Funnily enough, this isn't the first time he's [[Disney/{{Hercules}} voiced Zeus]].
** Creator/JenniferHale is Erinyes.
** Creator/CrispinFreeman is Helios.
** MichaelClarkeDuncan is Atlas.
** Linda Hunt ([[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} Grandmother Willow]]) voiced Gaia in the second game and the role was then taken up by Susan Blakeslee ([[KingdomHearts Maleficent]]) in the third game.Though Linda Hunt still narrates the game.
** Creator/MalcolmMcDowell is Daedalus.
*** Doubles as an ActorAllusion, as he did the voice of [[{{VideoGame/Fallout3}} President Eden]].
** Creator/JoshKeaton is the Spartan warrior [[spoiler:that Kratos accidentally kills]] in the second game.
** Creator/DebiMaeWest is Atropos.
** Kevin Sorbo [[HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys reprises his role as]] Hercules.
** As does Henry Hamlin as [[Film/ClashOfTheTitans Perseus]] with a dose of InkSuitActor.
** Creator/AprilStewart is Aphrodite.
** Rip Torn is Hephaestus. Funny thing too, since he's voiced the King of Gods Zeus in [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Disney's Hercules]]
** Creator/ClaudiaBlack is Artemis.
** Simon Templeman ([[LegacyOfKain Kain]], [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Admiral Han'Gerrel]]) is Peirithous.
** GideonEmery is Poseidon in the third game.
** ElijahWood is Deimos.
** ClancyBrown is Hades in the third game.
** Creator/TroyBaker is Orkos.
** Leigh-Allyn Baker, the mom from GoodLuckCharlie voices one of the girls in the bathhouse in part 2.
** Antony Del Rio ([[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Pit]]) is Young Kratos
*** In the Japanese version:
** Creator/TesshoGenda is Kratos.
** Creator/HoukoKuwashima is Pandora.
** Creator/MamiKoyama is Hera.
** Creator/TakakoHonda is Lahkesis.
** KenichiOgata is Poseidon ([[TheOtherDarrin only in GOW III]]).
** Creator/DaisukeNamikawa is Helios ([[TheOtherDarrin only in GOW III]]).
** Creator/KiyoyukiYanada is Hercules.
** ShozoIizuka is Cronos.
** Creator/YukoKaida is Persephone.
** MasakoKatsuki is Tisiphone
**** HilariousInHindsight: Creator/TesshoGenda's Japanese voice as Kratos can be considered as such if you take into account he voiced [[spoiler:Kurama]] [[Manga/{{Naruto}} The Nine-tailed Fox]], and Kratos' job is destroying creatures like him during all the games.
* IKnewIt:
** [[spoiler:The Titans' betrayal.]]
** How Kratos "defeats" Aphrodite. Not to mention the fact that Aphrodite would be the...ahem..."opponent" for the sex minigame.
** Many fans guessed that the grave digger from the original game was [[spoiler: Zeus]]. The revelation in ''Ghost of Sparta'' is quite anticlimatic: you just have to select this character in arena mode, or see his name in the credits.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the third game, they planned for Aphrodite to [[spoiler: draw a dagger ''in the middle of the sex mini-game'' and try to stab Kratos, forcing you to win a QuickTimeEvent to survive]], but changed their minds.
** [[http://www.gametrailers.com/video/sdcc-10-gt-tv-extended/702452 This interview,]] (content starts 10 minutes in) reveals an alternate story for God of War 3. Zeus would have been killed at the beginning of the game and the gods from Myth/EgyptianMythology and NorseMythology would fight the Olympians and Titans for control over the world. The game would end with all the gods dead, Kratos killing himself to reunite with his family and TheThreeWiseMen following the Star of David.
** [[AbortedArc The Three Wise Men following the Star of David was hinted as far back as the first game.]] It appears as one of the pictures in the SequelHook room. Another picture foreshadowed Zeus' FaceHeelTurn.
