Ogres are a species of burly, powerful, gorilla-looking giants seen in God of War (2018). There are many variations, all of which are very powerful and usually present a significant danger in battle. If they are stunned, Kratos can mount it and use it to attack other enemies in the area. After damaging it enough, Kratos can kill it by cutting open their jaws with his axe.
Norse Mythology Edit
In mythology, ogres are often depicted as inhumanly large and tall and has a disproportionately large head, abundant hair, unusually colored skin, a voracious appetite, and a strong body. Ogres are closely linked with giants and with human cannibals in mythology. In both folklore and fiction, giants are often given ogrish traits (such as the giants in "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "Jack the Giant Killer", the Giant Despair in The Pilgrim's Progress, and the jötnar of Norse mythology); while ogres may be given giantish traits.
Powers and Abillities Edit
Ogres are one of the most powerful standard enemies in God of War (2018). They are capable of performing a number of devastating attacks. All standard Ogres attack by swinging their massive arms or charging at their enemies,as well as smashing the ground to perform shock-wave attacks; which can be done in succession. If smaller enemies are nearby an Ogre may grab them and throw them at Kratos. Fierce Ogres can jump great lengths to attack an enemy from above. If an Ogre is stunned it can be grabbed onto and ridden around. Kratos can then use the enraged Ogre to smash into other enemies for a brief amount of time, causing massive damage. The more powerful of the standard Ogres can grab Kratos and smash him into the ground.
Types of Ogres Edit
Ogre's come in two different classes:
- Ogre: The basic kind of Ogre, with greyish skin. This Ogre type fights with their huge arms, which give their attacks good range.
- Fierce Ogre: The Fierce Ogre is similar to the regular ones but more violent and erratic, and blood-red markings around their body.
- Ogres are equivalent to Cyclops from the previous games, as they also are large beasts that can be used to ride around and attack nearby enemies.
