Greek Mythology

In Greek mythology, Hyperion was one of the mighty Titans. He ruled the stars along with his siblings, and was also the father of Selene (Goddess of the Moon), Helios (God of the Sun), and Eos (Goddess of Dawn).

God of War: Chains of Olympus

Kratos finds Hyperion shackled in the depths of Tartarus, makes his way up and around the great Titan, and out of the depths.

God of War II & God of War III

Hyperion is mentioned and revealed to embody the Sun itself before Helios did. His anger at the Phoenix, an animal that burned brighter than he did, led to him striking it down. Said Phoenix was revived by the Sisters of Fate to show that they were the ones in charge, and that their will was greater than that of the Titans.

Rumors arose saying Hyperion may or may not have been the unnamed Titan in the battle on Mount Olympus. During the battle, a sand-colored Titan is seen climbing up the mountain, right behind Oceanus, with the latter turning around to check up on the Titan. This sand-colored Titan could indeed be the Titan Hyperion. It is possible that he was attacked and killed when the Hippocampi pulled him down in the background when Gaia says "Something has me, I can not move Kratos. Free Me!"

Throughout Olympus, several Hyperion Gates can be found, to be used in crossing great distances quickly.The most notable example of this is the gate in the realm of Hades, which required the soul of a god to activate. Another Hyperion gate links the chambers of Aphrodite and her husband Hephaestus' forge, though it was rarely used.

God of War: Ascension

Hyperion is revealed once more to have had control of the Sun in the past, forging a spear in the Sun's core that could bear the weight of the cosmos. Curiously, Ouranos's name is mentioned in said spear's attack section.


  • Hyperion and Cronos are brothers, and were among the few Titans who conspired against their father Ouranos.
  • He seems to be one of the smaller Titans when seen in God of War: Chains of Olympus.
  • The website (now dormant), created to promote God of War 2, revealed that the Titans ruled the Island of Creation and that Hyperion's defiance of the Fates's will is what led to the birth of the Phoenix.
