In Greek myth, Perseus was the famous hero who killed the Gorgon, Medusa. He was commonly said to have accomplished this feat with a variety of magical items lent to him by the gods, including a helmet of invisibility, the winged sandals of Hermes, a magical sword, a special pouch to store Medusa's head in, and a reflective shield that allowed him to find the Gorgon without actually looking at her and turning to stone. He also was a descendant of Zeus and Danae.
In God of War: AscensionEdit
|“||Hardened by the Gorgon Medusa's gaze, this armor protected the legendary savior of Andromeda.||”|
–In game description
The Perseus armor becomes available by preordering God of War: Ascension and getting the Mythological Heroes Pack. His armor differs greatly from how he appeared in God of War II - it was based on his depiction from Clash of the Titans. The Mythological Heroes Pack, as well as Perseus, contains Orion, Achilles, and Odysseus.
A metal cast of Medusa's face has been imprinted on the back of his armor, he has a large helmet that has a spiked plume arching over it, and his arms are guarded by steel plates.
