Typhon's Bane in God of War II.

Attack enemies from a distance with this weapon ripped from Typhon's eye.

Typhon's Bane was a weapon introduced in God of War II and was stolen from Typhon's eye.

As Kratos made his way to the Island of Creation, he came across Typhon's Lair. After he made his way through the cavern, Kratos encountered Typhon and stabbed him in the eye repeatedly. Kratos ripped out Typhon's Bane from behind Typhon's eye and used it to free Prometheus from his torment. A magical bow-like weapon, Typhon's Bane allowed Kratos to fire gusts of wind instead of arrows. It could be leveled up as well, which increased its power and gained new abilities.

  • Before God of War II's release, it was an Unnamed Wind Magic that was in place of Typhon's Bane.
  • There was a glitch with Typhon's Bane that gave Kratos a brief window of invulnerability after he drew the bow. That could be used tactically to avoid heavy hits and, if perfectly timed, the ability to never get hit. That was also the case with the Head of Euryale.
  • Some instances in the God of War community reported using Lethal Vortex during certain boss fights, including Theseus, Mole Cerberus, and Lahkesis, which caused the game to freeze and crash.
  • One could bypass Typhon's Lair during one's Bonus Play by freeing Prometheus immediately, as the player could use Typhon's Bane from the start.
