God Mode is a difficulty option that can be toggled at any time from the menu on a non-Hell Mode file. God Mode grants 20% damage resistance, increasing by 2% each time a run ends in death (rather than escape). The damage resistance caps at 80%. This mode was added to make the game more accessible, as well as to give players a way to experience the story of Hades more quickly if they wish.
This mode may be turned on and off via the options menu at any point without consequence. When turned off, the player will lose the damage resistance, but retain any percentage gained until God Mode is turned on again. Using God Mode will not lock players out of Achievements or content. However, God Mode run records are stored separately from non-God Mode runs.
- Activating God Mode will give Zagreus a buff called Deus Ex Machina. Deus ex machina typically refers to a plot device that abruptly resolves a plot situation through an unlikely occurrence. The phrase's origins can be traced back to ancient Greek theatre wherein actors playing as gods could be brought onto the stage via a machine to resolve a conflict.
