Hera's Chalice in God of War III.

Hera's Chalice was Hera's Godly Possession. Its gem, that was located on the front of the cup, was used in a puzzle in order to solve the hidden passages in Olympus' Garden.


Hera's Chalice was an ornate silver cup, with elaborate handles on either side, a stemmed base, and a Green Jewel that was set near its lip. Hera was seen drinking from it when Kratos confronted her at the Arena, and threw it away in frustration while he approached her at the Gardens.

Using that Chalice during Bonus Play continuously drained the health bar, without fully depleting it. As with all of the other Godly Possessions, it disabled Trophies when it was activated.

The nature of the Chalice when it was used in Bonus Play may have been a reference to it always having some beverage in the cup, without completely emptying it.


  • Simply walk down the path that Hera threw the Chalice in, pick it up, and continue forward into the Garden.


  • Hera's Chalice was the only Godly Possession which was mandatory to collect as Kratos used it to proceed through the Garden.
    • If one glitched the game and failed to retrieve the Chalice, then Kratos used a nonexistent item and proceeded through the Garden.
  • The Chalice re-appeared in several maps of Multiplayer in God of War: Ascension, as Godly Intervention. As long as the Holder lived, he earned extra points for his team.
