Sources?[edit]

He shows an absolute identification of a slave with his master, taking Zeus' thoughts as his thoughts and Zeus' orders as his

Huh? Where on earth is this information coming from, exactly?

I, too, find this rather, erm, vague and unreliable information. Could we find any better information on the bloke? Or, where, yes where did that information come from? What and whom are you quoting on this? Shadowcrow (talk) 21:23, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
The whole paragraph raised my eyebrows, as I reached this page from Operation Kratos. Surely it should either be sourced or removed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.72.9.25 (talk) 14:48, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Spelling of his name[edit]

Why Cratos? I've always seen it spelled as Kratos, and even the article says Kratos is more accurate.

Yes, it can either be spelled Kratos or Cratus. Cratos is an unacceptable mish-mash of Greek and Latin spelling conventions. Ifnkovhg 11:09, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

This. Kratos is the Greek transliteration, Cratus the Latinised version. Cratos is pure nonsense. --Shoemoney2night (talk) 05:54, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
And renamed. I've also removed some unsourced claims about Kratos. --06:07, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

God of War[edit]

It would be interessant to link this article with the one about God of War(the videogame). It isnt greek mythology, but is based on it. Vermelhored 23:15, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Son of Zeus?[edit]

The information about him being a son of Zeus an a mortal woman must be erroneous. The article "Pallas (son of Crius)" states: "Pallas is a Titan associated with war. His family tree is disputed. Most sources indicate that he was the son of Crius and Eurybia, the brother of Astraeus and Perses, and the husband of Styx. He was the father of Zelus, Nike, Cratos, and Bia..." If there's some dispute about the matter, can someone please point to me a source stating he was the son of Zeus? If not, I'll edit the article to say he was the son of Pallas and Styx. Shadowcrow (talk) 11:15, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I'm now fairly sure this is an error. I'm now correcting this to say he was son of Pallas and Styx. See http://www.theoi.com/Daimon/Kratos.html . Shadowcrow (talk) 20:56, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

"Popular culture"[edit]

This section looks like it was copypasted from a video game magazine. I am personally sure it will be just enough to say "the protagonist of a blah-blah bears the same name but is a totally different character". And that's it.
