Divine vision! The sacred mist shows the life and death of all that it touches.

–Description of the mists

Sacred mists of delphi
The Scared Mists of Delphi are hallucinogenic gasses that are found around the Temple of the Oracle.

God of War: Ascension

Kratos must use the mists to find new paths to his destination, by stepping in the gas, the temple around him begins to age and fall apart. The Spartan must complete many puzzles and platforming challenges with aid from the mists as they change the physical properties of walls and doors, ageing them enough to become breakable. Although the gas creates hallucinations, Kratos can still use the changed environment as if it were physical.


  • The mists may be representative of the vapors from the Kerna spring waters inhaled by the Oracle of Delphi in actual mythology.
