Deimos' Gauntlets in God of War: Ghost of Sparta.

Deimos sported two gauntlets of an unknown origin. Those two items were appropriately named Deimos' Gauntlets.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

At the end of his quest for his brother, Kratos finally found Deimos in a chamber in the Domain of Death, with two large rocks/gauntlets on his hands that kept him from using his arms. Those gauntlets were chained to the ceiling. Kratos destroyed the first one in order to release Deimos from the large chain that held him. Later, while he fought Kratos, Deimos used the remaining rock as a gauntlet in order to fight him by pounding the ground, punched and even blinded Kratos by throwing dust at his face. At the end of the battle, Deimos tackled Kratos and pounded him with the gauntlet, which broke apart after several hits. After Deimos attempted to beat Kratos with his bare hands, Thanatos took him to Suicide Bluffs.

Deimos Gauntlets


  • In many ways, the gauntlet Deimos that used in his fight against Kratos was similar to the Gauntlet of Zeus from God of War: Chains of Olympus. It was about the same size, was used with the same hand, and had many moves in common, including the sequences of punches and the charges. In fact, the only difference between them was probably the Color – when used, the Gauntlet of Deimos glowed orange/red with fire, whereas the Gauntlet of Zeus glowed blue.
    • That probably showed that the Gauntlet of Zeus was recycled from Chains of Olympus to Ghost of Sparta, and was not only in the Grave Digger Costume.
  • Although the Gauntlets were originally used to bind Deimos to his chamber like huge handcuffs, Deimos seemed to have a good interaction with them and not only used them as weapons, but also made them glow with fire when they were used. The only way that would have happened would be if they were specially made for him to use as weapons (which didn't make sense, since they were used to keep him as a prisoner) or if Deimos had some kind of fire power - probably his rage - and was able to channel it through the weapons that he used. As mentioned above, the origins of those items were unknown and it wasn't possible to tell whether any of those statements was true.
  • The way Deimos that used his gauntlet to throw dust from the ground at Kratos' eyes resembled one of Kratos' memories of his childhood: a training session he had with Deimos, and both Spartans used a spear and a shield. Deimos used his shield to throw dust at Kratos and stunned him in a surprise attack. That was probably one of Deimos' favored techniques.
