God Of War Fans Lose It Over How Tall Thor Is

Kratos is certainly someone you wouldn't want to square up against. However, it seems fans may want to be even more wary of new kid on the block, Thor. Especially, when he's towering over them like the World Serpent.

God Of War is full to the brim with burly and intimating characters who loom over the rest of us mortals, but then the majority of them are gods. 

The God Of War franchise has certainly brought us a lot of shocks and surprises and the trailer for the upcoming next-instalment Ragnarök certainly was no different following its big reveal at the PlayStation showcase in 2021. However, it seems God Of War still has plenty of surprises in store, as some fans have discovered just how tall Thor is and, turns out, he is an absolute giant. Literally.

God Of War: How Tall Is Thor?

The discussion between fans about just exactly how tall Thor is all began on Reddit after being sparked by user by Jonathan_Z_Star. In the post, Jonathan_Z_Star expressed their shock at Thor's mountainous height compared to Kratos, who stands at an incredible seven feet. From looking at the image of the two gods standing next to one another, Thor appears to be double the size of Kratos. If this is the case, Thor could stand at a whopping 14 feet tall. 

However, Thor's appearance from the secret ending of God Of War and the Ragnarök promo art is significantly different, so there's a chance that his height could be altered, also. Let's just hope to Odin that 'Skinny Kratos' doesn't make an appearance. Although, a time-travelling Ghost of Sparta would be pretty cool. 

While some fans were blown away by Thor's height, others were less intimidated. After all, God Of War isn't exactly short of tall characters. For example, fans were quick to point out the eye-watering stature of Kratos' half-brother Hercules in God Of War III. Not to mention, there is of course Týr, Aesir God of War and Laws, would even make Kratos' neck hurt from looking up all day.

God Of War: Why Is Thor So Tall? 

Just exactly how Thor got to be so tall was further discussed and explained by fans in the Reddit post and, unfortunately for the rest of us, it looks like it takes a little bit more than just eating your greens. According to one fan, the reason for the Thor's intimidating stature is Santa Monica Studio's nod to Norse mythology: "I think in norse lore Thor's mother is a giant so that could explain it." Another fan supported this theory: "Even in the game they mention that Thor's mother was a giant and one of Odin's great lovers. Odin loved and married a giant and look where he is now."

However, there was no short amount of sympathy for Thor's half-brother Baldur, who certainly would have got a sore neck during family gatherings as he missed out on the giant gene. One fan said: "Damn baldur wasn’t just cursed with not being able to feel anything or die he was also cursed with being short AF. Maybe that’s the real reason he was seeking out the giants to get some of that height."
