I offer you the power to freeze your enemies where they stand, but you must earn such a gift. Medusa, the Queen of the Gorgons. Bring me her head Kratos, and I will give you the ability to wield its power.


Greek MythologyEdit

Medusa' Gaze
In Greek myth, the legendary Gorgon Medusa had the power to turn anyone who looked directly into her eyes to stone. She was decapitated by Perseus.

In God of WarEdit

Medusa's Gaze is a power given to Kratos in God of War. After killing Medusa for Aphrodite, Kratos keeps Medusa's head and uses its Gorgon powers to turn his enemies into stone. Although this power doesn't work on other Gorgons, all other enemies are turned into stone. Larger enemies take longer to turn into stone than smaller ones. Leveling the magic up further increases its freezing power, and to gain faster attacks with it. Gorgon's Rage, the strongest and most costly move, Kratos slams the head into the ground, creating a swirling shockwave of Gorgon magic.
