Kratos vs beast

Kratos battling the Manticore

The Manticore is presented with lion-like facial features, the jaw of a shark which can become unhinged, bat wings, human arms, a scorpion tail and insect-like plates lining its back. This is moderately close to its mythological appearance. In the Dev-diary, we see that the battle will more likely start and/or end in front of a snake themed temple and then on an arena by the temple. It stated that Kratos will encounter the Manticore a few times before finally confronting it head-on.

Trivia

  • It should be noted that the Manticore does not have arms that are separate to its wings in the God of War universe, this is different to the one in actual mythology as that had a lion body complete with four legs.
  • In the single-player teaser when Kratos jumps and attacks the Manticore, there's a large snake like beast or structure right next to them.
