The Blades of Exile are a pair of curved short swords seared the the forearms of Kratos, the main protagonist of the God of War series.
After Kratos was betrayed by the Titans in his revenge journey against the gods of Olympus and cast into the Underworld, his trusty Blades of Athena broke and were forced to be replaced by Athena's ghost with the Blades of Exile. Wielding these blades throughout the war against both the gods and Titans, Kratos threw them out of sight when he realized he didn't need weaponry to kill Zeus, but hope...and his fists.
Formed from the remains of the Blades of Athena, the Blades of Exile were nearly identical to the last two duo of blades the Ghost of Sparta wielded. However, they contained a large variety of god-like power such as blades able to slice through boulder and summon a phalanx of undead Spartans and their shields to protect Kratos in the heat of battle.
- Kratos uses these blades in his guest appearance in Mortal Kombat (2011).
