Inspired heavily by Greek tragedies and mythology, Kratos is a star example of a vengeful hero. To revenge for his fallen family, he conveniently accepts the request from Athena to destroy the former God of War, Ares. Upon slaying the god, however, he became the new god.

Created just as carefully and seamlessly as the game are the figures of Kratos. By battling enemies, the new god gained more power. Created almost entirely in a semi-opaque aqua material, Kratos Poseidon's Rage Form is the very image of the angry sea god.

While the Poseidon styled figure emits a blue glow, the Dark Odyssey form portrays a lethal grace. With multiple points of articulation and his twin blades in his hands, Kratos is ready to wreak havoc to any realm that stands in his path of vengeance.

The action figures of Krato's Poseidon form and Dark Odyssey form are selling for the same price of US$ 16.90 only.
