    Kratos' Red Stripes Could've Been Blue


    David Jaffe, the director of the first God of War, shared a little something about the development of the game.

    During the development of the game, Kratos had blue stripes,but before the game was announced to the world, someone on the team pointed out how similar Kratos looked to the Barbarian from Diablo II. Jaffe then said, "I had played Diablo I, but never II, and this was sure news to me," so they decided to change it to the bloody color you see on Kratos today.

    I can't picture him with blue stripes, he looks like a blueberry with whip cream.

    eh, honestly if you would've asked me if they were red or blue, I probably would have said red, but wouldn't of been shocked if you told me blue.

    I prefer the red, but the blue does look good, too.

    I already knew this, but it's interesting to see how different it can look in contrast to iconic red. At least those who like it blue have the option to in All-Stars and Mortal Kombat.

    I wanted blue, but people wouldn't take me seriously if I had it, so I choose RED!

    I feel like red would have more meaning anyway. I mean, we know why he's so "pale". Red can mean "blood" symbolically.

    Red matches the personality of Kratos: His anger, fury, thirst for blood and vengeance... etc.

    He's a Spartan though, blue would have been a terrible choice. He looks good in blue, but red was the best option either way.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    Yeah it's probably a good thing that went with red rather than blue.

    Yeah this is really old news, 8 years I think. Still, red suits him much better.

    Would be cool if they include a blue costume in.

    I prefer red since red is more symbolic with all the blood in his hands he haves and it express his personality. Though blue looks badass also.
