As with several other religions, it bares common similarities to other ideas of Heaven.
In God of War: Chains of OlympusEdit
When Kratos came to the Underworld in search of his daughter, Calliope, the goddess Persephone said he was to relinquish his power to the Forsaken Tree to enter Elysian Fields, as those with weapons could not possibly be pure. Kratos obeyed, and was promptly reunited with his daughter. But when Persephone revealed her plans to destroy the Pillar of the World, Kratos was forced to leave his daughter behind. To regain his powers, Kratos killed all the Elysium souls holding his powers, thus regaining them, simultaneously barring him from entering Elysium and seeing his daughter again.
- In mythology, Elysian Fields is not restricted only to pure souls but to those who died of heroic and noble death as well. This is similar to Valhalla in Norse myths.
- The famous place in Paris, France, called Champs-Élysées is French for Elysian Fields, Champs meaning fields, and Elysees to mean "Elysian"
