Armored Cyclops[edit]

Heavily armored and smart to boot, the armored Cyclops is a fierce opponent. In order to properly attack the beast, Kratos must first get past the Cyclops's armor. Powerful blows with the Gauntlet of Zeus do the trick. Once the Cyclops has been stripped of it's armor it's time to hack and slash.

Armored Minotaur[edit]

The one flaw in the Minotaur is its lack in defense. The armored Minotaur corrects that. Layered with a thick coat of armor, this Minotaur is ready for whatever Kratos has to offer. But the armor isn't on too tight and can be removed with some magic or a powerful attack. Once the armor is gone it's time to take this beast to the slaughter.

Athenian Solider[edit]

The Athenian Soliders defend the streets of Attica from the invading Persian army. They have a pretty hard life. Not only must they face a foreign army, they also have to tackle the problem of the rampaging Basilisk and try to avoid the wrath of Kratos. Their pathetic armor and weak attacks aren't helping them much.

Banshee[edit]

Legendary screamers, Banshee voices are enough to ruptuer eardrums and give even Kratos a migraine. But a Banshee is more than just a powerful set of lungs. Their half-women, half-serpent bodies act like giant whips, delivering heavy block-breaking blows.

Basilisk[edit]

A massive beast of legend, the Basilisk is a mixture of vicious animals. Unleashed upon the city of Attica, it crawls over buildings devouring civilians and soliders alike. More than once it torments Kratos with its mammoth jaws, colossal claws and blazing breath. Luckily, most of the monster's attacks can be blocked or evaded. If Kratos can successfully execute a few combos and activate the Basilisk's Context-Sensitive action, he's in the clear.

Charon[edit]

The ferryman of the dead, Charon is just as menacing as one would expect. Cold, cruel and intense, Charon is unbeatable the first time Kratos fights him. The ferryman's blurring speed makes him nearly impossible to touch and his long scythe has an incredible reach. It isn't until Kratos has gained some netherworld experience and obtained the Gauntlet of Zeus that he is able to make a stand against Charon.

Cursed Harpling[edit]

Found in the realm of Hades, Cursed Harplings are born into a world of death. They gather together in flocks, swooping in ununexpected prey. Their attacks are quick as are their retreats. It only takes a hit or two to send these pests packing, but beware a flock of them!

Cyclops[edit]

Servants of the King of Persia, these towering creatures aren't known to be the smartest bunch. The one thing they do know is how to fight and they display their might before Kratos on a number of occasions. Their thick hind acts as natural armor, while their arms act like mallets, crushing their small targets. But the one-eyed beasts' large size slows them, often leaving them open to counterattacks.

Brothers of the Hyperion Guards, Death Knights are huge demons tha excel in defense. Unlike their weaker relatives, Death Knights also have powerful offensive manuvres. Their equipped shield can be dispelled by a powerful combo or by unleashing Efreet, but it returns quickly.

Gorgon Queen[edit]

More tempting and more deadly than the standard Gorgon, a Goron Queen slithers up to its prey and sensually wraps itself around their body. Once in the Gorgon Queen's grip, their advaseries have no chance of escaping the Gorgon's famous stone stare.

Harpling[edit]

Smaller than their full grown sister, Harplings are little more than pests when they attack Kratos individually. However, they rarely act on their own, choosing to move in flock of at least five. They take turns attacking, swooping in one at a time for a continuous rain of blows.

Hoplite[edit]

The skeletal soliders, Hoplites, reign as the general army of the underworld. They gather in troops, keen blades shredding souls who wander from their destined path. As Kratos enters the underworld they set their eyes on the living Ghost of Sparta.

Minotaur[edit]

More bull than man, the Minotaur charges at enemies with its piercing horns, tossing them into the air like a rag doll. If the Minotaur's target does somehow dodge the charge they still have its large blunt sword to deal with. Its substantial size coupled with its huge attack radius can instantly destroy an enemy. Thank the Gods it has a terrible defense.

Morpheus Beast[edit]

Giant fangs, razor-sharp claws and blue fire breath are the ingredients for one fearsome creature. Morpheus Beast, one of Morpheus's fog-borned beasts, and its non-sequential array of attacks are all offense and no defense. Sneak in a couple of combos and it's bye-bye kitty.

Persephone[edit]

Within the tower in the fields of Elysium the agile Persephone attacks Kratos while the Titan Atlas attempts to destroy the world. Persephone is a master of the magical arts and darts through the air with her four black wings. Her armor is one of a kind but fails to protect against any of Kratos's attacks.

Persian King[edit]

The leader of the Persian attack ot Attica, the Persian King isn't the king for nothing. His magic can cripple enemies by the dozens and his massive size and blade crush all who haven't already run away in fear. Too bad he isn't a inventive combatant. His basic sword maneuvers can be blocked and the King's large girth slows his movements, allowing Kratos to unleash a series of counterattacks.

Persian Archer[edit]

The Persian Archers work in groups and act as support for their close-combat comrades. Always found at a distance, the archers have hawk-like eyes and flaming arrows that lock onto the targets with pinpoint percision. If their line is breached though, their deadly arrows become worthless and their light armor does nothing to save them.
