I always thought that Kratos killed all the gods in the Greek pantheon, but recently I’ve heard that some actually survived after God of War 3. Who are they?
Probably Aphrodite(she hot af lol) and some of the deities that were mentioned but never appeared in the games
Yes I believe that it is only minor gods that survived
Unless their deaths happened in other stories we never heard, surviving gods should include
Amphitrite (Poseidon's wife, mentioned but not seen except as a statue)
Aphrodite (Kratos spared her),
Artemis (she was an ally in GOW 1 and never reappeared.)
Asclepius (god of medicine), possibly was not on Olympus at all.
Morpheus (possibly was punished after the events of Chains of Olympus)
Eros (though he might be primordial and not on Olympus, the same could be said for other primordials who were possibly already dead or had nos stake in Olympus anyway, like Nyx and Hypnos).
Triton (mentioned but never appears)
The Muses (mentioned but never seen)
Demeter and Hestia (mentioned but never seen, they appear in the novels but are minor)
Eos (unlikely since she depends heavily on the existence of Helios. If he dies, so does she. If she was weakened by him being captured in Chains of Olympus, his death probably killed her)
Iris (she abandoned Olympus in a side story set before GOW III)
Apollo (for whatever reason he never appears, but is mentioned.)
These are just some of the many deities that are mentioned but are also most likely alive and present considering the Greeks are rebuilding the pantheon and their world, either by following their demands or out of respect as seen in the treasure room of Tyr in GOW4
Aphrodite and Apollo to name a few. There’s also a lot of minor gods that survived because they didn’t present a threat to kratos
What do you think?
