God of War Fan Attempts to Make Kratos Out of Clay, Gets Hilarious Result


  • God of War fandom celebrates fans’ creative expressions of love for the series, even when they fall short, as seen in the hilariously inaccurate clay sculpture of Kratos.
  • The community appreciates self-awareness in fan art, as shown by the artist calling their creation “one of the most cursed things” they’ve made.
  • With God of War: Ragnarok potentially being the conclusion to Kratos’ journey, silly but affectionate tributes like the clay sculpture are likely to continue in the fan community.

A God of War fan just shared their attempt at making a sculpture of Kratos out of clay, which fell short in a hilarious fashion. Ever since its initial run in the 2000s, the God of War franchise has inspired countless fans to express their love for the series through mediums such as cosplay and art.

Although these expressions may not always prove to be accurate to the source material, the fandom always finds a way to celebrate when fellow fans represent their love for the series. For instance, faithful gender-swapped cosplays of Kratos have been all the rage since the first game hit store shelves in 2005, peaking in popularity around the time Kratos’ Nordic adventure kicked off in 2018. Additionally, the God of War fandom also deserves credit for having a great sense of humor, as tributes to the franchise don’t always go according to plan.

As such, when Reddit user whitestargammer uploaded their attempt at creating a clay sculpture of Kratos onto the platform, fans reveled in the silliness of the attempt in the comments. Although the sculpture seemed to be an attempt at recreating Kratos’ older appearance from recent titles, some argued that “Claytos” looked more like Dave Bautista’s Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy. One other commenter showed confusion over the sculpture, believing it to be depicting Idris Elba.

Tellingly, despite how far in appearance whitestargammer’s “Claytos” was to Kratos’ portrayal in Santa Monica Studio’s iconic series, fans still celebrated the effort. The caption on the post may have had something to do with it, though, with whitestargammer calling the sculpture “one of the most cursed things [they’ve] made.” In the realm of fan art, a little self-awareness seems to go a long way. That is, unless the level of craft skills that went into making the fan art is clear as day, as seen in a fan-made rendition of Mjolnir made entirely out of yarn.

With Kratos’ journey seemingly reaching a fulfilling conclusion in God of War: Ragnarok, these silly, but ultimately, very loving tributes to the character are likely to continue emerging within the community as the character enjoys what may be his last ride into the sunset. That isn’t to say that God of War is going anywhere, though. With rumors floating about that God of War: Ragnarok may be getting a half-sequel sometime in the future, reminiscent of 2020’s Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, fans might be seeing more “Claytreus” sculptures down the line instead.

It serves as the sequel to God of War (2018) and the conclusion to Kratos and Atreus’ journey through Scandinavia.
