Heracles was blessed with unnatural strength from birth.
He was outright hated by Zeus' wife, Herawho drove him to madness as he grew into adulthood. This god-driven madness led him to commit the murder of his wife, Megara, and his two sons.
Seeking atonement for his atrocious deed, King Eurystheus assigned Heracles to perform ten labors, but cheated him into doing two more. Heracles, however, had finished all these labors mainly using his strength and found redemption.

After the two warriors trade blows for a time and Kratos destroys one of his shoulder-guards and his helmet, Kratos stabs Hercules in the arm and takes the pair of Cesti, first one and then the other.
Hercules then fights Kratos unarmed, which he considers a real challenge. After a long and fierce fight, Hercules tears up and lifts the floor of the arena making Kratos almost fall, but he uses the spikes on the Cestus to claw his way back up.
