In the Greek god of war saga, Kratos (find out if Kratos is really immortal in God of War) clashes with the Gods to take revenge for their injustices and cruelty. These divine creatures, however, are not the only beings that populate Hellenic mythology and, consequently, the Santa Monica Studio games: let’s find out who the Titans are.

Taking into account what is told to us in God of War (with due differences from the true myths), we know that the Titans were generated on the Isle of Creation: Gaia, the incarnation of the Earth itself, is the mother of all Titans. Themis, on the other hand, is the one who gives the world itself a conception of justice and law, and a purpose for the other Titans.
Among them, Cronos is the governor of creation and the father of numerous children: the Gods. A prophecy, in fact, told of how the great Titan would one day be defeated by his own offspring, which is why he began to devour them. Rhea, Cronos’ wife, wanted to save their sixth and last child, hiding him on a distant island; it was Zeus who, later, with the help of Gaia, would save his brothers, rebelling against Cronos.
With the end of the Great War, the Titans were defeated and bound to different tasks: Cronos would support the Temple of Pandora, while Atlas would bear the weight of the world on his shoulders. Only a long time later, intertwining with Kratos’ revenge mission (in this regard, why does Kratos in God of War hate the Gods?), the Titans would attempt another war. However, with Gaia’s death in the finale of God of War III, eliminated by the God of War himself, hopes of regaining control of the world over the Gods were finally extinguished.
