The in this guide listed trophies can only be found in the God of War 
Collection for Playstation 3 and cannot be found in the original releases of 
God of War & God of War II on Playstation 2.
Well, this is my first FAQ that I write. I tell you how and where I have 
unlocked some of the harder to get trophies during my run-throughs of these 
games. Please note that I played in the hardest available difficulty.
This means, Spartan-Mode (Hard) for God of War and God-Mode (Hard) for God of 
War II.
I did a second run-through on the easiest difficulty, to earn all the remaining 
trophies that I forgot to unlock during my first run.
You may notice that english is not my native language. I am trying to write as 
error-free as possible. If you find any extreme errors, please e-mail me. If 
you have any tips to earn certain trophies on an easier way, please e-mail me, 

How to use this FAQ
This is a Trophy Guide and NO Walkthrough!
Make sure you completed the games once by yourself before reading this FAQ. You 
may spoil yourself a lot. If you have problems to unlock a specific trophy, 
then this guide can help you. All God of War and God of War II Trophies added 
to this FAQ.

If you send me an e-mail with alternative strategies or other tips, please
insert your name that you want me to use in my FAQ to the mail.

===GOW-1.1.11) Kickboxer===
===Requirement: Complete the Spike Room Box Puzzle
You need to survive the Spiked Room Box Puzzle before you can reach one of the 
two necklaces in the chapter "The Cliffs of Madness.

However, to complete the Sex Mini-Game, you need to jump on the bed and to push

directions with the left analog-stick. You get a bunch of red orbs and you 
unlock the trophy.

===GOW-1.1.13) Don't Leave Her Hanging===
===Requirement: Rescue the Oracle with 10 seconds to spare
This is an easy one. Just finish the race to rescue the Oracle with 10 seconds 
left on the timer. Be in time to unlock the trophy.

Enter the room with the Atlas statue in "The Challenge of Atlas". It is the

activate the switch to unlock the trophy.

===GOW-1.1.16) Splash===
===Requirement: Kiss the Nyad

"Pandora's Temple". You need to kiss only one Nyad to get this trophy.

rewards you with a Phoenix Feather or a Gorgon Eye, but the trophy drops for 

===GOW-1.1.17) Get Me a Beer Kid===
===Requirement: Free yourself from the depths of Hades
Climb up the rope at the end of the chapter "The Path of Hades" to unlock this 

===GOW-1.1.18) Zero Health = Bronze Trophy===
You may ask yourself, if this trophy really needs a description. Oh, it does 
for sure, because who could ever have the idea to open a health-giving chest 
with a full health-meter? You gain no health, but a trophy for sure!

===GOW-1.1.19) Hitman===
===Requirement: Get a 100 Hits Combo
Make sure that your magic "Poseidon's Rage" is at least on Level 2 and your 
mana-meter is full.
I suggest you to to play in Hard Mode, because the monsters have more hit
points and do not die that fast. Check the alternative strategies to know
the places to unlock this trophy on lower difficulties.

My Strategy for Hard Mode:
There is one place to get the trophy very fast. It is the little room with the 
switch to rotate the gear wheel, short before you destroy the door that leads 
to the magic of Zeus Fury. Open the center door on the left wall, near the gear 
wheel in the ground.
Many monsters spawn around the switch. Wait until they are surrounding Kratos.

Now cast Poseidon's Rage and button-smash the Circle-Button. I hit the monsters 
with a combo of 102. Cast it once more to unlock the "Hitman 2" trophy, too.
I earned both trophies with a maximum combo of 206.

Sometimes, your combo-counter restarts from zero if you wait to long for the 
second wave of monsters to surround Kratos. If this happens, open the pause-
menu with the SELECT-Button, use "Restart from the last Checkpoint" and try it 
Just hit the monsters between the two magic attacks with normal attacks, to 
avoid the combo-counter to reset itself.

Well, I played it on Spartan (Normal) and managed to get both trophies in the 
Challenge of Atlas. After you lower the rock and climb down and all the way to 
Hades' shield after using the rope... I used Poseidon's Rage, which was at 
level 1 after gathering the enemies around me, and I got 350 hits... and if you 
are wondering, yeah I tried again and got over 170 and on the second 260... In 
other words, you can do it easily...

Mohammad A. wrote:
There is very easy way to get this trophy with 200+ combo hits. The place is
in the Temple of Panadora, before getting the blue shield. There is a wall
with spikes going to kill you, while you are attacked by many monsters.
Use Poseidons Rage and tab rapidly the Circle-Button.

Send me an e-mail if you have discover another place to earn this trophy.
I really want to know!

GOW-1.1.20) Getting My Ass Kicked===
===Requirement: Die enough times to get offered Easy Mode
You need to play the game at least on Normal Mode or higher. Just die five 
times inside the same battle to get the offer. You do not need to accept it, 
but you unlock the trophy for sure.

===GOW-1.2) Silver Trophies===
There are 10 silver trophies to earn in God of War. You have various tasks to 
accomplish to earn these trophies. Some of them only require defeating boss-
monsters. Others want you to collect a specific amount of various things or 
story-based items.

===GOW-1.2.1) Kratos' Marble Collection===
===Requirement: Collect all the Gorgon Eyes
You need to find 18 Gorgon Eyes to earn this trophy. You can find the Gorgon

===Requirement: Collect all the Phoenix Feathers
You need to find 18 Phoenix Feathers to earn this trophy. You can find the 
Phoenix Feathers in specific chests during the game. You can also kiss two of 
the four Nyad's to get one.

===GOW-1.2.3) It's the HUGE One===
===Requirement: Retrieve the Captain's Key
You need to win the Hydra boss fight at the end of the first chapter "Aegean 
Sea". After the Hydras death, walk into its open mouth and find the captain 
inside. Take his key to unlock the trophy.

===GOW-1.2.4) Take the Bull by the Horns===

the video by pushing the X-Button to unlock this trophy.

===GOW-1.2.10) Seeing Red===
===Requirement: Max out all Weapons and Magic
It is near impossible to max out all weapons and magic on Normal-Mode or 
higher, because you get less red orbs by defeating enemies. Play the game at 
least on Easy Mode and try to follow these simple rules:

- Kill your opponents very brutal to get more red orbs
- Try to find every chest that includes red orbs during the game
- Use the experience gift of the Gods at the secret room in Rings of Pandora
- Chests and Monsters in Hades give you many red orbs
- Fail the Mini-Game above Ares head after the second sequence to get many red 
orbs (repeat this as much as you want)
- Max out your weapons in the throne room at the end of the game

Johnis80 wrote and told me that he got the trophy by getting hit and trying
again without to restart from the last check point.

Mohammad A. wrote:
"I did not know that there was a trophy by climing. I felt down many
times but when I reached the top, the trophy was unlocked. There is no
need to restart from last check point."

A comment on my blog from Jesse confirms it again:
source: http://acantophis3rd.wordpress.com/2009/11/27/gow-trophies/
"The only way to get up the Spiked Column is to not get hit so you get
that trophy if you make it up. No need to reset."

Thanks to their comments and e-mails, we know now that you dont need to
reset from the last check point or to load your game again after you got
hit. Just make it up to the top and the trophy is yours!

Here are some tips on how to solve this torture:

- Don't hesitate
- Wait for the blades to move away
- Use the walls to your left and right to take a break

===GOW-1.3.3) I'll Take the Physical Challenge===
===Requirement: Complete the Challenge of the Gods
This is the hardest trophy to earn in God of War. It needs a lot of time to 
figure out how to solve each of the 10 challenges. I needed 4 hours for all 
stages. Take your time for this trophy.

===GOW-1.3.4) Speed of Jason McDonald===
===Requirement: Beat the game in under 5 hours on any Difficulty
The best difficulty to accomplish this task is the Easy Mode and you need to 
follow these simple rules:

- Don't kill every enemy on your way
- Only kill all enemies if you are forced to (to lift a magical barrier)
- It helps a lot if you know how to solve every puzzle on your way
- The timer does not run while you are in the save-, upgrade- and pause-screens
- The timer does not run while pre-rendered and animated cut scenes are running

===GOW-1.3.5) Key to Success===
===Requirement: Collect all of the Muse Keys
There are four possible chests, hidden during the Challenges in "Pandora's 
Temple", that include a Muse Key, but you can only pick up two. I found my Muse 
Keys at the following locations:

- You can find one Key inside a chest behind the Atlas statue in the "Challenge 
of Atlas".
- Do you remember the rotating knifes at the roof of the "Challenge of Hades"?
At the end, there is a rope to your left and a tiny walkway to your right side.
Take the right walkway and find a chest with a key on its end.

===GOW-1.4) Platinum Trophy===
There is 1 platinum trophy to unlock in God of War.

through the game. 

===GOW-2.1.17) Super Sized===

This trophy is laughable compared to the "Hitman" and "Hitman 2" trophies from 
the previous game. Just start a new game on the hardest difficulty and use the 
first fighting scene. Defeat the first wave of soldiers and wait for the second 
to come. Now abuse Poseidon's Rage and fill the breaks, until enough new 
enemies surround you, with Light Attacks (Square-Button). I made a 634 HIT
combo during this scene.
You can earn this trophy almost everywhere in the game.

I found really easy (almost unintended) way to make it in Normal.
Right after you get "Chrono's rage" in "The steeds of time" you have unlimited
magic during the fight. Tap the L2-Button all the time and the lightning
will make all the work since it chains all enemies in the small room and they
keep coming from the ground. I raised a 856 HIT combo just by pressing L2.

A good spot to obtain it is in the hand of Atlas, just after obtaining Atlas
Quake. There are a lot of soldier coming, and I used a level 2 Cronos Rage.

Please send me an e-mail and tell me your favorite place to break the 
500 Hits Combo and I add it to this FAQ.

===GOW-2.1.18) Hitting Your Stride===
Just power up any item or magic to unlock this trophy.

===GOW-2.2) Silver Trophies===
There are 11 silver trophies to unlock in God of War II. Many of them require 
playing the game. Others have more challenging tasks to solve.

===GOW-2.2.1) Eye Can't Believe it===
===Requirement: Collect all the Gorgon Eyes
You need to find 18 Gorgon Eyes to earn this trophy. You can find the Gorgon 
Eyes in specific chests during the game.

===GOW-2.2.2) Go Make a Pillow!===
===Requirement: Collect all the Phoenix Feathers
You need to find 18 Phoenix Feathers to earn this trophy. You can find the 
Phoenix Feathers in specific chests during the game.

===GOW-2.2.3) Eye Sore===
===Requirement: Collect 20 Cyclops Eyes
Kill 20 Cyclops and rip out their eyes. It may be possible to get all 20 eyes 
during the same game, but it is difficult (read the readers tips below).
If you could not collect all 20 eyes during the same run, start a new game
and continue. Please note, collecting the remaining eyes in a Bonus Play on
a different difficulty does not work! Start a Bonus Play at the same
difficulty to complete your collection.

Eye Score in Titan Challenge Stage 1:
Another way to continue to complete your collection of Cyclops Eyes is to play 
the first stage of the Challenge of the Titans, right after you finished the
main-game. Enter the Challenge of the Titans directly from the Treasure menu
and begin with this stage. Play it until you have all 20 eyes and the trophy
will be unlocked, but take care of a bug:
I found out that it's not possible to keep the eye after you succeeded the 
challenge and just selected to Restart the current Challenge. Avoid this by 
just selecting to Return to the Challenge main-menu and to start the challenge 
from there again.

Regarding the "Eye Sore" trophy, you claimed, "It is not possible to get all
20 eyes during the same game."  I just did.

Granted, I was playing on Easy difficulty, but I'm not sure that makes a
difference.  Outside the Palace of the Fates (shortly after obtaining the
Atlas Quake ability), there is a battle where creatures will blow a horn and
summon a cyclops one after another.  The idea is to kill off the creatures
before they summon too many.  I decided to let them summon several cyclopses
and would simply pull the rider off the cyclops, damage it, and hope for the
circle prompt to initiate the mini-game (otherwise I'd yank the rider off
after he climbed back on and beat the cyclops down some more).  I kept
defeating cyclopses while trying to keep the summoners alive long enough to
get my twenty eyes.

I'm guessing this might be harder to do on a higher difficulty, but isn't
that hard on Easy.  Each cyclops gives you back some health, so it's easy to
stay alive long enough to complete your collection.  On a harder difficulty,
it's probably a good strategy to kill off the summoners as soon as possible,
but I don't see why a skilled player couldn't do what I did on a harder level.

David M. wrote:
I'm writing you to tell you it is possible.
Right outside of The Palace of the Fates. You have a lot of enemies coming at
you. You have a Beast Lord Summoner that summon cyclops. Keep ripping out their
eyes to get your 20 eyes. As long as u dont kill the summoner you can keep
killing the cyclops to get your trophy.

A final note:
I remember that I did it the same way in my first run of the game back in 2006
but I only could collect 14 eyes. I tried it again in the remastered version
on the hardest difficulty and the beastmasters did not call for more cyclops
after I have defeated the others. So I was thinking that it is impossible to
collect all 20 in the same run. I suggest you, my dear reader, to try out
ynot4tony's and David's way and to call yourself a true god of war. Good luck!

===GOW-2.3) Gold Trophies===
There are 5 gold trophies to unlock in God of War II. They require to find 
Urns, Uber chests and to solve very challenging tasks.

===GOW-2.3.1) The End Begins===
===Requirement: Beat the Game on any Difficulty
Just complete the game on any difficulty of your choice to unlock this trophy.

===GOW-2.3.2) Feel the Urn===
===Requirement: Collect and use at least 2 Urns of Power
Four Urns are hidden inside the main-game and two needs to be unlocked by 
completing the Bonus Game "Challenge of the Titans".

Here are the locations of the four Urns inside the main-game:

Urn of Gaia:
Remember the riddle in "The City of Rhodos" with the golden bird statue on a 
block. You need it to weight two ground plates.
Push the block on the first plate and kick it through the door, followed by a 
dodge role. Don't weight the second, just kick the block inside the right and 
down the corridor to the three chests on a higher platform.
Destroy the golden bird statue and jump on the block to reach the chests. The 
chest in the center includes the first urn.

Urn of Gorgons:
Remember the big wheel in "The Bog of the Forgotten" and the corridor with the 
stone-beams behind.
After you got the Golden Fleece from the Cerberus, return to this place and 
push the L1-Button while standing in front of the beams. You reverse the beam 
and the wall breaks. Do this with all the three stone-beams to enter the chests 
behind. One of these includes the second urn.

Urn of Olympus:
Remember the place with the Spear of Destiny sticking inside a dead bird.
Pull it out of the bird and destroy the enemies. Now take the Statue of Fate 
and rotate it with the platform, so it is looking in the direction were you 
came from.
Kick it down and push it in front of the first pool with water. Jump over the 
pool and freeze time by pushing the L1+R1 Buttons. Now run. >Use the grapple 
point to jump over the second pool. Run around the corner and cross the ground 
plate that closes the gate in front of it. You find three chests inside the 
room. One of it includes the third urn.

Urn of Prometheus:
Remember the area inside "Atlas" with the endless spawning insects.
Destroy all nests first. Make your way to the exit of the cave and start 
climbing on the wall. You find a hole at the first half of the way that leads 
into a room with two chests. One chest includes the fourth urn.

How to unlock the two remaining Urns at the Challenge of the Titans:

Urn of Fates & Urn of Poseidon:
You need to complete all the 7 stages of the Challenge of the Titans with a 
Titan Ranking to get these two urns.

How to activate the Urns:
Now start a Bonus Play on any difficulty and enter the Status-Menu by pushing 
the L1-Button. It is the menu with the stats about how long the game runs and 
how many monsters you have killed. There you can enable and disable the power 
of the urns in your possession. Enable two powers to unlock the trophy.

===GOW-2.3.3) Bleeding Thumbs===
===Requirement: Beat the Challenge of the Titans
Complete the seven Challenges of the Titans to unlock this trophy. It does not 
matter what Ranking you get at the end of each Challenge.

===GOW-2.3.4) 15 Min Fight Scene===
===Requirement: Battle your way to the Loom Chamber in under 10 minutes
Remember the downward spiral to the Loom Chamber with the third, fat Sister of 
Fate inside.
Battle your way to the end of this spiral and defeat wave after wave of 
enemies. Reach the door at its end in less than 10 minutes. This unlocks the 
trophy. I made it on the easiest difficulty.

===GOW-2.3.5) You Know the Germans Make Good Stuff...===
===Requirement: Collect all Uber Chests
There are three Uber Chests inside the game. Find all three in the same run 
through the main-game to unlock this trophy.

Here are the locations of the chests:

Uber Chest 1 Location:
Remember the place with the ride on the back of the Undead Berserkers horse.
After you returned from "The Bog of the Forgotten", make your way to the place 
were the ride has started. There you find the first Uber Chest.

Uber Chest 2 Location:
Remember the place at "The Temple of Fates" with the translator that jumps 
into death.
You need to push a Statue of Fate near the door to see the translator killing 
himself. Open the door with the switch. Go through the mirror and spawn outside 
of the door. Freeze time and run back to the place were the statue originally 
was, before you hear the translators screaming. There you find the second Uber 

Uber Chest 3 Location:
Remember the Underground Passage after the sacrifice of the second 
translator. There you find a rope that tears up at the half way. You will fall 
down. Kill the Gorgons and the Bowmen nearby and continue climbing on the wall. 
On the other side, defeat all enemies and wait before the vent.
Now use Typhon's Bane and shoot at the wall on the other side of the vent. The 
wall will break and discovers a niche with the third Uber chest.

After you found all three chests inside the same run through the game, the 
trophy unlocks itself.

===GOW-2.4) Platinum Trophy===
There is 1 platinum trophy to unlock in God of War II.

===GOW-2.4.1) Trophy of Gaia===
===Requirement: Unlock all God of War II Trophies
Unlock the 18 bronze, the 11 silver and the 5 gold trophies to earn it.
