The lights are on
Players have gone on countless revenge quests with Kratos,
but there's still a lot about gaming's favorite god killer you might not know. In
preparation for God of War: Ascension, here are some dumb facts about
Kratos that are in no way meant to be funny.
Dumb Fact #1: Kratos Is A Great Friend
Kratos has developed a reputation for being a bit of a hothead, due to all the
god killing and whatnot. But the truth is he's actually a pretty good guy when
you get to know him. Whenever one of his pals moves into a new
home/castle/underground torture dungeon, Kratos always volunteers to help them
move, and doesn't make up excuses in order to avoid doing the heavy lifting.
Dumb Fact #2: Kratos Was A Drama Club Member
Kratos is known for adding a bit of flair to his acts of deicide, but his love
of drama started long before his quest for revenge. When he was younger, Kratos was
a member of his high school's drama club, where he wrote, directed, and starred
in a stage adaptation of his favorite movie, Angels in the Outfield.
Dumb Fact #3: Kratos Tried To Be A Blacksmith
At one point during his god-killing career, Kratos briefly entertained the
notion of pursuing a new line of work. His love of finely crafted weapons drew
him toward a career in blacksmithing. Kratos even landed an apprenticeship
with a respected blacksmith, but things went horribly wrong as soon as his
mentor handed Kratos a hammer.
Dumb Fact #4: Kratos Briefly Had A Medical License
Blacksmithing wasn't the only other job Kratos pursued unsuccessfully. His
expert knowledge of human/monster anatomy allowed Kratos to fly through medical
school, but his career as an optometrist ended in court with a messy
Dumb Fact #5: Another Failed Job
Kratos' brief stint as a chiropractor also didn't end well.

That is one fierce Ratatta.
Really wouldn't let Kratos be my chiropractor.
Sure, but his is Rattata in the top percentage of Rattata?
heh.... Good ol fava.
I'm not even sure.
*goes to put on a pot of coffee
Kratos had a long and diverse career prior to his god-killing days.
Im starting to get the feeling that the title was sarcasm...
Kratos is a very ambitious man, he's just like James Franco :D
I still feel bad for killing Hephaestus. I imagine Kratos does too.
