Typhon's Bane in God of War II.

Attack enemies from a distance with this weapon ripped from Typhon's eye.

Typhon's Bane is a weapon that was introduced in God of War II and was stolen from Typhon's eye.

As Kratos made his way to the Island of Creation, he came across Typhon's Lair. After he makes his way through the cavern, Kratos encountered Typhon, and stabbed him in the eye repeatedly. Kratos rips out Typhon's Bane from behind Typhon's eye, and used it to free Prometheus from his torment. A magical bow-like weapon, Typhon's Bane allows Kratos to fire gusts of wind instead of arrows. It can be leveled up as well, which increases its power and gains new abilities.

Trivia Edit

  • Before God of War II's release, it was an Unnamed Wind Magic that was in place of Typhon's Bane.
  • There iss a glitch with Typhon's Bane that gives Kratos a brief window of invulnerability after he draws the bow. That could be used tactically to avoid heavy hits and, if perfectly timed, the ability to never get hit. This is also the case with the Head of Euryale.
  • Some instances in the God of War community have reported using Lethal Vortex during certain boss fights, including Theseus, Mole Cerberus, and Lahkesis, which caused the game to freeze and crash.
  • One could bypass Typhon's Lair during one's Bonus Play by freeing Prometheus immediately, as the player could use Typhon's Bane from the start.
