Greek MythologyEdit

Medusa' Gaze

Medusa's Gaze in God of War.

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

God of WarEdit

Medusa's Gaze was a power that was given to Kratos in God of War. After he killed Medusa for Aphrodite, Kratos kept Medusa's Head and used its Gorgon powers to turn his enemies into stone. Although that power didn't work on other Gorgons, all other enemies were turned into stone. Larger enemies took longer to turn into stone than smaller ones. Leveling the magic up further increased its freezing power and gained faster attacks with it. Gorgon's Rage, which was the strongest and most costly move, Kratos slammed the head into the ground, which created a swirling shockwave of Gorgon magic.
