* 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.]]
*** Speaking of Hercules, he ''[[CutContent almost]]'' appeared in God of War 2, where he would have been voiced by Creator/CamClarke, who famously voiced [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia another guy named Kratos]].
** 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]].
* 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 in the second game.]] It appears as one of the pictures in the SequelHook room.
