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.
Medusa's Gazeisapowergiven to Kratos in God of War. After killingMedusafor 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. At the beginning of God of War II however, this Magic Ability is lost (possibly to the Blade of Olympus) and is later replaced by the Head of Euryale, taken from one of the two remaining Gorgon Sisters.
