* FollowTheLeader: While having the game set in Myth/NorseMythology was one of the many ideas tossed around all the way back in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarIII'', there's no doubt that the Norse Pantheon's popularity in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is what gave the devs enough confidence to go forward with it.

** Many reviewers critical of the game have noted that God of War has been reworked into a VideoGame/TheLastOfUs mold, and fear this already-established trend consuming more franchises.

* CastingGag: In the Japanese dub, Kratos is voiced by Creator/KentaMiyake, who already voiced [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Thor, another god]], not to mention [[spoiler:Susanoo, the Japanese god of storms]] in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction''. Also, this is not the first time he voiced [[Manga/MyHeroAcademia a mighty hero who had a younger protege at his side]]. The same goes for Creator/KikukoInoue as Freya, as she already voiced [[Manga/AhMyGoddess another Nordic goddess before]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[https://dontfeedthegamers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Screen-Shot-2018-08-20-at-11.43.33-AM.png Apparently]], the team experimented with an Egyptian setting, before settling on the current Norse narrative.


* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Even after CharacterDevelopment, Kratos is still very much a no-nonsense force to be reckoned with, with his legendary temper still present but kept under check until certain moments of extreme stress. His actor, Christopher Judge, can't keep a straight face when reading dad jokes in Kratos's voice and was cast partially because Sunny Suljic (the actor who plays Atreus) felt the most comfortable around him out of those who auditioned for the role.
