How Tall is Tyr in God of War Ragnarok? – If you’re already disappointed by the slightly more realistic heights of some of God of War ‘s main men and find your mind wandering to other vertically gifted digital beings, don’t leave before I’ve had the chance to tell you about Tyr.
Tyr stands at a whopping 8’5″ tall in God of War: Ragnarok, That information comes directly from the PlayStation UK team, who confirmed the Norse god of war’s height in a tweet seemingly meant to appease the.errcuriosities of a particular group of fans (you know who you are). While Tyr is obviously a tall drink of godly water, I do have some bad news for you shippers out there.
Yes, it turns out that Tyr is still about a foot shorter than Resident Evil Village ‘s Lady Dimitrescu, So while the two could conceivably strike up a relationship in some kind of universe-blending scenario that allows them to have large children, the size difference would be pretty noticeable.

How tall is the Norse god of war?
How tall is Kratos in God of War Ragnarök? – Officially, Kratos is currently six foot and four inches, This is his redesigned height for the 2018 God of War and now its sequel, Ragnarök. Kratos used to be seven foot and six inches in the pre-2018 God of War games, but he was made shorter to be more approachable and closer to actor Christopher Judge’s height of 6’3″.
- This is according to Santa Monica Studio lead character technical artist Axel Grossman (via Gnomon YouTube ).
- This means that Thor is likely around an entire foot taller than Kratos in God of War Ragnarök.
- Thor towers above Kratos, making him quite the foe for our protagonist.
- Ratos likely wouldn’t match Thor’s height even on tip-toes.
Thor is quite a broad chap, too, so his size really is quite imposing when compared to Kratos. Kratos in the original trilogy, however, standing at 7’6″ would be around the same height as Thor in Ragnarök. What is it with old age and getting shorter?

How tall is surtur in God of War: Ragnarok?
Biography – Surtur was an enormous fiery demon native to the dimension of Asgard. Possessed of evil intelligence and vast power, Surtur was one of the major elemental forces of evil that the Asgardians feared. He was a mystical being whose existence predated that of Odin himself.
Over 1,000 feet tall and wielding a huge fiery sword, he was once imprisoned by Odin at the Earth’s core. Along with Ymir the Frost Giant and the Midgard Serpent, Surtur was the most powerful of Asgard’s native enemies. Surtur has been freed from imprisonment a few times over the years. The first time the Asgardian god of mischief Loki set Surtur free to wreak havok on Earth.
The second time Surtur was set free by Marduk of the Sons of Satannish, a cult of human demon-worshippers. Surtur was banished to some unnamed netherworld at the end of that encounter. He appeared, yet again, in what was to be one of the Asgardians greatest battles against Surtur.
Surtur hatched a plan to lure Asgard’s armies to Earth leaving the city vulnerable to attack. He crossed Bifrost with his newly forged Twilight blade believing Asgard to be defenseless; Odin, Thor and Loki were there to make a last stand to defeat Surtur. Their victory did not come easy though, as Odin fell along with Surtur into a dimensional rift.
Surtur apparently died along with the Asgardians during Ragnarok. Universe, Other Aliases, Education, Place of Origin, Identity, Known Relatives

How big is Baldur from God of War?
Baldur’s personality in God of War (2018) drastically contrasts with his Norse Myth counterpart, who was said to be gentle, eloquent and kind to all living beings. Like his mother, Baldur goes around barefoot. While he is unable to feel anything physically, he is still capable of emotions. According to the Art Book for God Of War, Baldur is roughly 5’11/6 feet tall. Unlike just about every other God in the series, including Kratos himself, Baldur has a clearly defined age from the time of his birth to his death. In the God of War: Lore and Legends Tome, it is stated that Baldur was born 144 years before the events of God of War IV. This makes him one of if not the youngest God that Kratos has killed, as all the other Greek Gods were millennia old at the time of their deaths. His comments before reuniting with Freya, as well as Mimir’s comment after the fight suggests that Odin promised Baldur that he would remove the spell. It is unknown whether Odin actually had the power to remove the curse or if he was lying. His Greek counterparts (in terms of attributes) are Apollo and (in terms of his speed) Hermes as well. Some guesses at its etymology suggest a link with “Dagr”, the personified day, so he can be seen as a counterpart to the primordial day goddess Hemera. Baldur is also similar to Hermes in the following ways:
Both possess superhuman speed, though in Hermes’ case it was his natural and main attribute. Both seem loyal to their fathers, as Hermes aided Zeus in protecting Olympus, whereas Baldur followed Odin ‘s orders to track down Faye, Both tend to talk when they fight Kratos, and both were also given chances to step aside by Kratos, though, in Hermes’ case, he was killed willingly, whereas Kratos was forced to kill Baldur in order to protect Freya, Both taunt Kratos over his failures.
It’s likely that Kratos sees a lot of his younger self in Baldur as a completely psychotic and unreasonable mass murderer that won’t be swayed from his path no matter what. Kratos attempts to talk him out of killing his own mother, mentioning that vengeance feels empty since he didn’t find peace after killing Zeus – especially since unlike his own father, Freya is a legitimately loving parent that only wanted what was best for Baldur.
Both being half-brothers of gods of war (Kratos being the half brother of Ares, while Baldur is the half brother of Týr ) Both were accursed by the gods with immortality Both became servants of the gods in a desperate attempt of releasing themselves from their endless suffering and in both cases neither got what they wanted from their masters. Both were loved by their mothers though Freya’s love and over protectiveness of Baldur would eventually lead him to want her dead. Both were deceived by those they sworn to serve, as neither the greek gods were able of releasing Kratos of his nightmares and nor Odin knew to break Baldur’s curse. Both of their deaths led/ will lead to the destruction of the gods of their respective mythologies. Both were killed by gods right after these gods quoting the cycle ends here Both tried to kill their parents (while only Kratos was successful). Both own tattoos, Baldur’s tattoos are blue in opposition of Kratos’ red tattoos. Both, by coincidence or not used the same line “You cannot stop me. Nothing can”, While Kratos used this line before fighting Erinys, Baldur used it before fighting Kratos again. Both were killed by the gods of war right after achieving their goals (Kratos being killed by Ares shortly after obtaining Pandora’s Box and Baldur being killed by Kratos shortly after being freed from his curse)
He’s also not too different from Atreus and is what Atreus could have potentially became if Kratos didn’t mature or tell him of his godhood. Both Atreus and Baldur have blue eyes and have issues with a parent who did more harm than good in an effort to protect them.
Given his psychotic reaction, such as gleeful joy at being hit, after being able to feel again it is possible that if he had killed Freya and lived, he would not have found peace as Kratos had warned. He would instead continue to spread murder and mayhem in a hedonistic rampage.
In Helheim, his illusion mentioned that he is unable to gain pleasure from women thanks to the invulnerability spell his mother placed on him. In Gesta Danorum, Baldur is depicted as a jealous, lustful, arrogant braggart and highly malevolent warlord, possibly setting precedent for the game’s characterization. However, the entire text is written for both a pagan and a christian audience of the time, so it is not intended to depict accurately reflect some of the beliefs of the pre-Christian Nordic peoples but rather to provide a certain commentary about the moors of the day.
Baldur’s invulnerability was somewhat similar to the Greek curse of Achilles, However, Baldur’s curse is far worse than Achilles, as he is unable to feel but at the same time is more effective, as his curse makes his entire body invulnerable, unlike Achilles’ weakness in his heels.
Baldur’s mythological wife, Nanna, is briefly referenced by Brok as he proclaimed surprise at Kratos’ foreign weapons, though it is unknown at this time if she will fulfill this role in the series. Baldur never introduced himself to Kratos, and he immediately attacks him in Kratos’ home as the moniker stated in the Codex: “The Stranger”.
When Kratos and Atreus discuss Norse Gods while navigating across the Lake of Nine, Kratos indirectly mentions Baldur: When asking Atreus about “one who could feel no pain”, he replies “that sounds like Baldur”. Later, during their journey atop the Mountain where they were eavesdropping on the Stranger asking Mimir to reveal Kratos’ whereabouts, the Stranger was revealed to be Baldur, and the name was added to the Codex.
Baldur’s final battle with Kratos ended the same way their first battle did, with Kratos snapping his neck.
In Norse mythology, Baldur’s death was the beginning of Ragnarök, the end of many gods like Odin, Thor and Loki.
This may be hinting that future games will include not only other gods but also their deaths (similar to the original trilogy where the death of Ares symbolized the end of the Greek Gods ).
At the conclusion of the game when Faye is revealed to be a Jötunn, Kratos realises that Baldur didn’t actually know who he was, but had mistaken him for a Giant due to the fact he was tracking his wife, whose ashes he was carrying throughout the journey. Interestingly enough, Faye’s true origin was foreshadowed by Baldur’s conversations towards Kratos during their first encounter when he mistake Kratos for being a Giant. Such as “I thought you’d be bigger, but you’re definitely the one” is hinting the Giants in general, and “Long way from home, aren’t you?” he was talking about Jötunheim, the Giants’ realm. In an ironic twist of fate, Freya’s attempt to prevent Baldur’s needless death could be argued to be the very reason for it, as this led to Baldur’s desire for revenge. Kratos only killed him to protect Freya herself. During their third and final battle, before Kratos snaps Baldur’s neck, Kratos says “the cycle ends here”, the same phrase Zeus said when killing Kratos in God of War II, The cycle refers to the Cycle of Patricide, although, in this case, it would be matricide. Baldur had a pet dragon named Dagsetr, which he used to travel to Kratos‘ home in their first encounter and was seen when Baldur kidnapped Atreus. A notable difference between mythology and the game is that, in the original mythology, Baldur was made invulnerable after he dreamt of his death. Since dreams were considered prophetic, this caused distress to him. His mother, Frigg, made every single thing, living and lifeless, swear an oath never to harm him, except for mistletoe, because she believed it was too young to swear an oath. In the game, his mother uses Vanir magic to cast invulnerability on Baldur, which, as any Vanir spell, has a weakness; in this case, that weakness would be mistletoe. Revisiting Freya’s cottage post-game will have Mimir reveal that, although she is capable of it, Freya is not likely to revive Baldur, as being reanimated is a torturous experience. However, in Norse mythology, it is said that Baldur’s mother does indeed attempt to retrieve him from Hel, and, due to failing this, Baldur is one of the few gods to return regardless following Ragnarök. Strangely, in Norse mythology, despite his violent death, Baldur was stated to have ended up in Helheim instead of Valhalla, Whether or not this holds true in the game is currently unknown.
This not only contradicts the very real world beliefs stating that the Vikings had that all warriors go to Valhalla but also Mimir ‘s own that states that the Aesir have their own ways of getting to Valhalla. It also states that after Ragnarök, Baldur would rise up from Helheim and become the new ruler of the Nine Realms, Again, whether or not this will happen in the games is currently unknown. It should be noted, however, that to die and go to Valhalla one has to die fighting. Baldur was not involved in a fight when he was killed, but rather was letting the other Gods throw weapons at him for their own amusement, since he believed nothing could harm him which can be considered a form of cowardice.
He is the second main antagonist of the series that Kratos kills not out of a personal vendetta but because he was forced to do so. The first was Persephone, Similar to Magni and Modi, the death of Baldur didn’t cause a massive explosion or cause a plague like the Greek Gods, despite being a full god and not Demi-gods like the former and latter. However, it could be argued that Fimbulwinter is a result of his death which is supposed to cause widespread death and famine as well as setting the events for Ragnarök, the twilight of the gods. Throughout the entire course of the game Baldur apparently never truly discovered Kratos’ true identity as a Greek God (or Ghost of Sparta). He believed that Kratos was a Jötunn.
