The Blades of Exile are the third and latest set of chained blades wielded by Kratos, given to him by the ghost of Athena in the beginning of God of War III. The blades replaced the Blades of Athena as his primary weapons, as the latter, which he received upon his rise to God of War, were completely ruined by his fall into the River Styx. The new blades also have a slightly different design, but their model does not change as they level up except for the amount of "flames" the blades emit when used.

The blades have attacks similar to their predecessors, the Blades of Chaos and Blades of Athena, but with a distinctly different design, featuring horned demon faces on the hilts, pronounced hooks on their lower edges, and an intricate pattern of orange stripes on the flat sides of the blades, which emit fire. These blades grant Kratos the magic power, Army of Sparta, as well as the ability to grapple enemies. The Blades of Exile were one of two weapons that weren't destroyed by Zeus in the final battle of God of War III.

TriviaEdit

  • When the Blades of Exile are in use, the weapons icon still has the shape of the Blades of Athena instead of the Blades of Exile's shape.
  • Though they do not appear in Ghost of Sparta, the Blades of Athena share the same moveset as the Blades of Exile.
  • The Blades of Exile share characteristics from both the Blades of Chaos and the Blades Of Athena.
  • The God of War III demo had Kratos use the Blades of Athena, instead of the Blades of Exile.
  • The Blades of Exile are the only blades that do not have a backstory. This was because they were forged by Athena and given to Kratos immediately in God Of War III.
  • The Blades of Exile only appear in God of War III. They are the only main weapons to appear in only one installment of the series.
  • The Blades of Exile are the only set of blades Kratos uses that do not have a tarnished look to them.
  • The Blades of Exile are also used by Kratos in the latest Mortal Kombat installment.
  • It is unknown what had happened to the Blades Of Exile after Kratos impaled himself with the Blade Of Olympus. They were seen being thrown away after Kratos forced Zeus' soul back to its mortal self and because the chains on Kratos loosened after he killed Zeus, it would be implied that he had no use for the blades anymore.
  • The Blades of Exile are one of the only two weapons that was not destroyed by Zeus after he goes into Astral form and attacks Kratos. The other weapon that was not destroyed in this incident was the Blade Of Olympus.
  • The Blades of Exile are the only pair of blades on the series that do not change shape when leveled up.
  • Even though they do not appear in Ascension, the Monster-riding ability from the Blades of Exile is used again by the Blade of Chaos.
