God Of War Players Are Arguing Whether Kratos Could Defeat Thanos
Who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman, a gorilla or a shark, John Wick or Neo? Now, the age-old debate has crossed over into the God of War realm. This time though, we're asking if the Ghost of Sparta could beat the Mad Titan.
Since God of War's debut in 2005, we've seen Kratos take out some pretty powerful adversaries. From Ares to Poseidon, Hades to Zeus, Baldur to (maybe) Odin and Thor, Kratos has had no trouble offing gods - despite his demigod status. So, would Marvel's Thanos be another easy kill for our bearded brute?
What Is The Kratos Versus Thanos Debate?
Over on Reddit, u/Ok_Distribution_8907 shared fan artwork of Thanos wearing the Infinity Gauntlet - towering over Kratos with his Blades of Chaos. When pitching whether Thanos would easily win, the debate erupted among Marvel fanboys vs God of War stans.
Someone quickly pointed out, "Thanos is wearing the gauntlet. He can now literally disassemble the universe. Bad comparison," however, another added, "To be fair not even characters who can manipulate time and fate etc could defeat Kratos."
The GoW subreddit was split down the middle on who would come out on top. A Kratos supporter said, "Kratos would have gone for the head ETA: I played some of GoW 3 last night. After watching how Kratos killed Hermes, I now believe Kratos would just cut off Thanos’s hand/arm. Brutally. Without remorse or second-guessing."
A final Thanos fan concluded, "Thanos took on the Hulk 1:1 with no stones. He can defend his head just fine." Ultimately, it doesn't really matter - unless we have an MCU and God of War crossover, this argument is purely fictional.
Will Kratos Die In God Of War Ragnarok?
God of War Ragnarok is one of 2022's most-anticipated games, and with this in mind, the storyline is on lockdown. No one knows what's going to happen, but we're guessing there's a pretty big fight with Odin on the way.
Added to this, the promos have been making the most of Ryan Hurst's beefier Thor - suggesting the God of Thunder will be going head-to-head with Kratos. Either way, Ragnarok is tipped as being a pretty final outing for all those involved.
We already know there won't be a third game in Norse mythology, but that doesn't mean the story ends here. Whether Kratos dies to protect Atreus, steps up as the Norse God of War, or something else entirely, Sony Santa Monica is sure to deliver another entry at some point in the future. Still, we're not sure who would win in a battle between Kratos and Thanos.
