The Grave Digger is a bonus character that can only be used in the Combat Arena. When selecting this character, the battle starts as the Grave Digger, then he automatically turns into Zeus himself, who uses the Blade of Olympus and the Gauntlet of Zeus.
Zeus' abilities cannot be upgraded by red orbs, and pressing the start button will only open the select menu. Additionally, Zeus only has basic Square, Triangle, and Circle button attacks, as well as a dodge technique and a long-range lightning bolt attack. He cannot guard, or use any magic, and he cannot initiate Quick Time Events either. If any of the directional buttons are pressed, Zeus will taunt his enemies. After losing all of his health, he will perform a powerful attack that will greatly damage enemies in the arena and will resurrect after this event.
The Grave Digger is unlocked by breaking all of the Orbs and obtaining the bonus content inside of them in the Temple of Zeus (via being selected in the Treasures menu), going down the secret passageway, and capturing the Grave Digger's Shovel which is found at the end of the tunnel.
