Atlas is one of the many enemies that Kratos encounters on his journeys. He serves as part of the final boss with Persephone in God of War; Chains of Olympus.


Atlas is a titan and presumably one of the tallest. The most notable thing about Atlas is that he has four arms instead of two.


The Great War

When Kratos encounters Atlas for the second time, he mentioned that during the Great War, Hades nearly ripped the soul out of Cronos, but Altas managed to rescue him. Despite him rescuing Cronos, Hades, with the help of Poseidon, manage to rip the soul of Atlas. After his soul was ripped out, he was imprisoned along with the other titans.

God of War: Chains of Olympus

After Kratos completed the task of killing the Basilisk, he noticed that the sun has dropped from the sky. It turns out that Atlas somehow escaped from Tartarus and kidnapped Helios.

As the gameplay progressed, Kratos found out that someone freed Atlas intentionally. It turned out that Persephone was the one who let Atlas free, because he was the only one who could rip Helios out of the sky and use his power to destroy a pillar that, if destroyed, would collapse the world, destroying it.

During the Final battle with Persephone, Persephone tried to distract Kratos by wrapping her wings around Kratos, and telling him to be with his daughter. With that distraction, Persephone called forth Atlas to crush Kratos to death, but Kratos managed to move out the way and managed to tie up Atlas' arms to the world, forcing him to forever carry the world on his shoulders. After Persephone was killed, Atlas asked Kratos if the gods would help him. He warned Kratos that they would meet again and that he will regret serving the Gods of Olympus.

God of War

Though Atlas doesn't appear in God of War, there is a trial inside Pandora's Temple called the Challenge of Atlas.

When Kratos enters a chamber known as the Chamber of Atlas, he encounters a statue of Atlas (which looks nothing like the actual Titan of Endurance). Kratos notice that the a part of the statue was missing, a giant iron ball that suppose to resemble the world is missing. Kratos had to find the World and connect onto the statue's hand. He does this by avoiding buzzsaws, climbing cliffs and a bunch of other dangerous obstacles. After he found the world and reconnect it on the statue, he used it to open a sealed door.

Years later, after Kratos killed Icarus and acquired his wings, he comes across Atlas, still holding the world on his shoulders. In order to reach the end of the Great Chasm, Kratos had to destroy Atlas' Chains of Torment to open a hole and climb out of the Great Chasm. After he reached and destroyed the Chains of Torment, Atlas tried to crush Kratos with his fingers, but fails. Kratos asked Atlas for his help to reach the Sisters of Fate.

At first he didn't want to help Kratos because of what Kratos did and attempts to crush Kratos again. But after Kratos tells Atlas that he no longer serves the Gods and that he was planning to kill Zeus with the Blade of Olympus, he tells him about the creation of the Blade of Olympus. He eventually decides to help Kratos, by taking him to the other side of the Great Chasm and giving him the Atlas Quake.


Atlas is a titan, so he has great Physical Strength. He's probably one of the strongest beings since he's holding the entire world on his shoulders. It also seems that Atlas doesn't need to eat or sleep, because he's forever punished to hold the world on his shoulders and he never seems to physically look hungry or tired, nor does he complain about being hungry or tired. It's also possible that Atlas is immortal.


  • Atlas is probably the only Titan that still alive because, if he dies, the world would be destroyed.
  • Atlas is the only Titan that doesn't appear during the 2nd Great War.
  • He's the only Titan that has more than two arms; to be precise, he has four of them.
  • In Chains of Olympus, Atlas is voiced by; Fred Tatasciore, and in God of War II, he's voiced by the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
  • It's interesting to note that when Kratos ties up Atlas hands with the Chains of Torment, he only tied up two of Atlas' arms, and yet in the cutscene that follows, all four of his arms are chained up. Either there was a mistake, or all of his strength comes from all four of his arms instead of two of them, and if he tries to unwrap the chains, he would cause the world to collapse on top of him.
