Wolves are a species of massive canines that appear in God of War (2018).

They appear as large reddish-brown or gray wolves. They usually appear in groups of two or three, alongside other enemies.

They attack Kratos either by rushing towards him and biting, or by leaping onto him from behind, pinning him down and inflicting continuous damage. If they are stunned, Kratos can knock-out the beast and throw it at enemies.

Norse Mythology Edit

The wolf is a common motif in the foundational mythologies and cosmologies of peoples throughout Eurasia and North America (corresponding to the historical extent of the habitat of the gray wolf). The obvious attribute of the wolf is its nature of a predator, and correspondingly it is strongly associated with danger and destruction, making it the symbol of the warrior on one hand, and that of the devil on the other.

Norse mythology prominently includes three malevolent wolves, in particular: the giant Fenrir, eldest child of Loki and Angrboda who was feared and hated by the Æsir, and Fenrir's children, Sköll and Hati. Fenrir is bound by the gods, but is ultimately destined to grow too large for his bonds and devour Odin during the course of Ragnarök. At that time, he will have grown so large that his upper jaw touches the sky while his lower touches the earth when he gapes. He will be slain by Odin's son, Viðarr, who will either stab him in the heart or rip his jaws asunder according to different accounts. Fenrir's two offspring will according to legend, devour the sun and moon at Ragnarök.

On the other hand, however, the wolves Geri and Freki were the Norse god Odin's faithful pets who were reputed to be "of good omen."

Types of Wolf Edit

Wolfs come in a two different classes

  • Rabid Wolf: The standard ones. and they can rush towards Kratos and bite him.
  • Poison Wolf: Similar to the regular ones, but they inflic poison damage due to their diseases. They are usually accompanied by Revenants or other poison enemies.
