Thank you for your choice.
Pandora’s Box (God of War)
Pandora’s Box is a powerful weapon that was used to imprisoned all evils throughout the world. It was originally used by Kratos to kill Ares, but when it was opened, all the evils inside the Box infected the Gods of Olympus. It is a recurring weapon in the God of War video game franchise, which is loosely based on Greek mythology.
After Titanomachy (the Great War) ended, Zeus wanted to keep the evils of the world from spreading, so he asked his son Hephaestus to create a box to imprison all the evils inside. After Hephaestus finished the box, Zeus imprisoned all the evils inside the box.
But Athena was concerned of what would happen if the Evils were released, so she placed the most powerful weapon inside the box; Hope. After the Box was sealed shut, Hephaestus recommended placing the Box in the temple on the top of Cronos where it can be safe.
God of War
When Kratos was assigned to kill Ares by the Gods of Olympus, Athena told Kratos about Pandora’s Box. She told him that the Box was the most powerful weapon that a mortal could wield, and that if it was opened it would grant anyone a huge amount of power, enough to kill a god. She also told Kratos that it was hidden somewhere in Pandora’s temple, on top of Cronos.
After Kratos went through trial, after trial, he finally acquired Pandora’s Box. Just when was about exit the Temple, Ares found out and tossed a giant jagged stone into Kratos.
killed by Ares
After Kratos was “killed” by Ares, the minions of Ares came and took Pandora’s Box from the dying Kratos, and brought it forth to Ares. After Kratos escaped from the Underworld, and reached Ares, he used Zeus’ Fury and threw it, cutting the chain from Pandora’s Box. Kratos processed to open the Box and acquired the power to kill a God. But what Kratos didn’t know is that he didn’t absorb all the evils, instead he absorbed Athena’s weapon, Hope, and all the Evils infected the Gods of Olympus, changed them and corrupted them, dedicating themselves towards one goal: Kill Kratos.
God of War II
The opening of Pandora’s Box caused the Gods of Olympus to be infected by the Evils of Titanomachy. The Gods became both paranoid and power hungry.
While it was never really seen or mentioned in the game, the role of the Box corrupting Olympus’ Gods set the stage for the game.
God of War III
Anger and debatably Wrath infected Poseidon.
Hate, Rage and debatably Wrath infected Hades.
Pride, Deceit, and Slander infected Helios.
Mockery, Arrogance, and Pride infected Hermes.
Envy, Jealousy, and debatably Wrath infected Hercules.
Lust and Vanity infected Aphrodite (even though it probably had little effect, since Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love).
Sloth, and Gluttony infected Hera.
Misery and Deceit infected Hephaestus.
Greed, and Selfishness infected Athena.
Insanity and Hatred infected Deimos
Insanity infected Daedalus
Fear, Obsession, and Treachery infected Zeus.
Kratos, Deimos and Pandora were blessed with Hope.
Zeus prisoned dark powers to the box because they were dangerous, they could destroy both human’s and god’s world. We learned that in God of War 3.
