Kratos, therefore becomes more powerful than ever and with more power, came to him, more arrogance. In a blind moment reeking of power, he kills his wife and children.
Finally, he defeats Ares and becomes the 'God of War'. In God of War II, Kratos is deceived by Zeus and killed. He is then taken to the underworld, where he is helped by Gaia, the Titan. Gaia wishes to seek revenge on the Gods, for the horrible atrocities they committed on the Titans, after the Titans lost the battle between them and the Gods.
