Approximate Size: 488 metres
As punishment for trying to eat his own children, Cronos was sent
to wander the deserts for eternity, carrying Pandora's Temple on his
back. In the first game, Kratos navigates the temple, successfully
obtaining Pandora's Box, which he uses to kill Ares, claim his
vengeance, and usurp the tile of God of War.
Fearing this new rival, and as further punishment for allowing
Kratos to reach Pandora's Box, Zeus places Cronos in chains to suffer
an eternity of torment in the pits of Tartarus.
So when the
mountain-sized Titan gets his dirty fingernails on Kratos, he fancies

is not just the boss you are fighting, but the environment you are
