Your progress is impressive Kratos, but your skills will not carry you to your ultimate goal. I offer you the souls of Hades itself, the souls of the dead, set ready to fight by your side.


This power is given to Kratos by Lord Hades, after slaying Pandora's Guardian and acquiring the Architect's Son's Head. It allows Kratos to summon the souls of Hades, and make them attack his enemies. A player can also level it up to increase the power and amount of the souls. Kratos uses a variant of this power in God of War: Ascension when he defeated and acquired the Soul of Hades. Kratos uses a variant of this power in God of War II when he defeated the Barbarian King and acquired Barbarian Hammer. Kratos uses a variant of this power in God of War III when he defeated Hades and acquired The Claws of Hades.

  • In God of War II, the Cursed Souls Kratos can summon with the Barbarian Hammer act and fight similar to the souls of the dead of Army of Hades.
  • In God of War III, the Claws of Hades use many moves inspired by the Army of Hades.
  • As one levels up the Army of Hades the color and shape of the souls change, at level 1 they are yellow and they wield swords, at level 2, orange and they wield axes, and at level 3, dark red and they wield falchion-like blades. This is probably due to Kratos summoning stronger souls from the deeper depths of the Underworld.
  • During the final battle against Ares, after the latter ripped out the Blades of Chaos from Kratos, who then lost all his magical powers, Ares uses the Army of Hades to summon souls that attack Kratos.
  • In God of War: Ascension, the elemental power Soul of Hades have a Rage of the Gods move called Army of Hades, that makes the same movements and animation of the original attack in God of War.
