Blades of Chaos
The origins of Kratos blades are explained in God of War, the first game from the series released on PS2. Kratos, having offered his soul to Ares in exchange for victory in battle, has the Blades Of Chaos seared into his flesh as a permanent reminder of his servitude to Ares.
The Blades of Chaos are Kratos' main weapons in all of the God of War games, so they appear in all three games as his primary weapon. In God Of War II and the end of God Of War I, the Blades Of Chaos are replaced by the Blades Of Athena. While they both function alike, there are aesthetic differences in the colour and gleam of the blades.
