Fans are again debating how tall Kratos is in the game now that it has been released on the PC. God of War developers at Sony Santa Monica has revealed that Kratos is 7 foot six in the comic books but substantially shorter in the God of War games. Earlier scripts suggested that Kratos was 6 feet six inches tall. According to popular belief, Kratos stands at around 8 feet. However, this has been debunked by the game’s creators.

Since its inception in 2005 by Sony Santa Monica Studio’s David Jaffe, the God of War series has been a PlayStation fixture, spawning eight titles. God of War, a PlayStation exclusive released in 2018, was ultimately released on PC in early 2022 via Steam. According to a release date for its ninth game, God of War Ragnarok, it is clear that the God of War franchise continues to prosper. Kratos, the protagonist of the God of War games, is primarily regarded as the face of the series.

Kratos’ height has been highly debated, although it is evident that it has fluctuated throughout the God of War films. Erica Pinto, the game’s Lead Narrative Animator, and Axel Grossman, the game’s Lead Character Technical Artist, discussed character rigging and cinematic animation during a three-part series on the production of God of War. Kratos’ height in the previous series of games was shown in a video on YouTube channel Gnomon to be nine heads tall, equating to 7′ 6″. God of War games are based on Greek mythology and revolve around Kratos, a Spartan warrior who has been misled into murdering his family and is now seeking revenge. Demigod Kratos is revealed to be Zeus’ son, which may explain his unusually high height.

God of War’s 2018 adaptation saw a change in the stature of Kratos.

Kratos is 6′ 4″ in God of War’s Norse Age, which takes place in ancient Scandinavia. Kratos’ dimensions have shifted from the comic-book aesthetic of the Greek period of God of War to a more realistic one after the release of 2018’s God of War. According to Grossman, Kratos’ voice actor, Christopher Judge, is 6’3″, since the games’ producers sought an actor with a similar stature to Kratos. Atreus, Kratos’ son, was introduced as a second protagonist in God of War for the first time in the series. The journey of Atreus and his companion to the highest mountain of the nine kingdoms to spread the ashes of Altreus’ mother is the focus of the game. Norse mythology’s monsters and gods appear to them along the way.

The character models utilized by the creators proved that Kratos was never so tall in the games, even if there is still some controversy about his height online. His height is 7′ 6″ in the Greek period of the game, whereas it is 6′ 4″ in the Norse era. God of War Ragnarok, due out later this year, might lead to more periods based on various mythologies. Creative Director Cory Barlog of Santa Monica Studio has hinted that future God of War games may take inspiration from Egyptian or Mayan mythology. If God of War moves on to a new age, it’s logical to assume that Kratos’ stature would alter again, as it did in the Greek and Norse eras.
