Spelling of name. Edit
Uh, isn't Kronos mostly spelled with a "k"?! -- ImperiexSeed, 12:34 PM, January 14th 2011 No, Chronos was before Kronos, Kronos being the titan of time and Chronos is the personification of time itself, Chronos was father of Chaos and Chaos was father of Kronos. 22.214.171.124 19:31, September 24, 2013 (UTC)Thexevilxwulf
http://www.supernaturalwiki.com/index.php?title=Chronos that site is very touchy about names and titles.: The Twilight of Your Despair 17:39, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Lol, yeah, I use to contribute to that site, but lately I've been editing this wiki. I looked it up, and found it can be spelled with either "Cronos" or "Kronos', but every time I've seen that word, it's always with a "k". -- ImperiexSeed, 12:45 PM, January 14th 2011
True as for Wikipedia In Greek mythology, Chronos (Ancient Greek: Χρόνος) in pre-Socratic philosophical works is said to be the Personification of Time. His name in Greek means "time" and is alternatively spelled Chronus (Latin spelling) or Khronos. But as they use direct transcripts of names and titles the show uses the Chronos spelling.: The Twilight of Your Despair 17:47, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
The official transprict on the Super-wiki version of this site. http://www.supernaturalwiki.com/index.php?title=Chronos is spelled Chronos not Cronos. Credits can be wrong. That site uses direct transpricts. However or not its spelled like that if the series uses that form we as an information site should do the same.: The Twilight of Your Despair 14:10, January 25, 2012 (UTC)
greater power Edit
Should it be noted, that his power over time is greater than angels, when they travel, it tiers them to an extent, when he did it, he didn't react what so ever, the first time he just ran off, the second he continued his fight with dean, only sam joined in. General MGD 109 22:21, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Thats hard to say. His powers are mostly based off and this is from the Super-wiki version of this site In an interview with the LA Times, Sera Gamble said that Chronos was inspired by the 2003 novel "The Time Traveler’s Wife," Audrey Niffenegger, about a man with a genetic condition that causes him to time travel. Gamble said the show’s writers found "a compelling starting point in the notion of time jumping that can’t be controlled."
So he can move through time faster and more often than Angels but control that is detable.: The Twilight of Your Despair 22:28, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Okay would it be better to say, he isn't so tired by using these abilities, than angels get when they do? General MGD 109 22:35, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
That is up to you or the admins. All I do is personally is study the episodes and listen to every word and action said done, I also go to the superwiki and study the Supernatural Salutes which are innate comfirmed facts from crew and cast members.: The Twilight of Your Despair 22:39, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Well, he couldn't move faster in time than Archangels, that's for sure. lol! Even saying he's a faster time traveler than angels is iffy, mainly because angels are generally stronger than gods. -- ImperiexSeed, 9:42 PM, January 25th 2012
Hey, it would've really been cool if he represented the actual personification of time, which would have made him practically unstoppable. What do you think? -- ImperiexSeed, 11: 35 PM, February 6th 2012
The personification of Time? well greek myths have cronus, father of zeus, hestia, dementer, hades and posidon and ruler of the titans, he is confused with this Chronos, who in the myths is meant to be pretty much a primordial, older than the Titans, if he had the same powers as in myth, he would not be solid, just a shape like the horsemen take, and then he would be above archangels and even God depending on how you look at it, since without him time would not function, he could likely switch off any beings ability to time travel, I know I like to ponder at the idea of primordial abstracts but in the show, they may simply be deitites, unless it is retconed that Chronos is part of a race created by Time it's self, like reapers to death and angels to God, if so, I guess the true Chronos was around from the start with God and Death, but diddn't play any part in creation.
Well, remember this. Chronos had to absorb time or lifeforce from others to control when and where he lands. As season 7 comfirmed that pagan or other gods can gain more power, from tributes not direct believe in worship. Something Eric Kriple did to avoid backlashes, similar to how the season 5 episode Hammer of the Gods didn't air in India for a long time, due to Baldur and Loki/Gabriel's relationship with Kali. I think that he was just another god in the series, that gave him a higher position that Zeus. As time would be a greater power than lightning to Greeks. And if you see someone have magic on a high scale, you will call that person/thing a god.
Plus, it could be the series lore. In the series verson of Greek mythology, Chronos might have just being a god like Zeus, and not the source of it; as one of the protogenoi. As the same with Samhaim, being a demon. As in reallife it isn't more often just an event. They just added it with a demon, as witches normally are humans that sell their souls for power. And halloween was associated with it in the later middle ages. The theme of that episode.[[User:Twilight Despair 5|]] ([[The God of Creation]]) (talk) 20:48, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
I personally think the Samhain episode was genius, sure, i have pagan beliefs, but the idea of taking a festival and personifying it as one scary unique, moster raising demon, was just fantastic, and as the episode was titled 'great pumpkin, sam winchester' is putting in the idea that Samhain is the Pumpkin King and the idea of two Sams fighting it out, but my boy Samhain was amazing and so needs to return, this time with 'this is halloween' as his theme.
Kronos the Titan Edit
Kronos was not a god - he was actually the Titan who overthrew his father Uranus, and was subsequently overthrown by Zeus who formed the pantheon of Greek gods we all know.
Enjoyed the episode, but got a niggling feeling Kronos should have been much more powerful given his Titan heritage. They made him seem like just another god like Loki or Osiris.
Kronos was the Titan but Chronos was the personalifcation of time in Greek Mythology. They are two different beings but in Roman version they are one being called Saturn or father time. A ageless old man the carries a scythe.: The Twilight of Your Despair 00:45, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
Yes the Roman version kinda combines the greek entities of the Titan cronus, the Time personification Chronos and Thanatos, the aspect of death, this is evidenced as saturn, the roman version carries a sythe which is similar to a sickle, in greek myths, cronus used this sickle to castrate his father, in roman myths, the sickle is a sythe, as Saturn was also the Harvest God, so such a tool makes sense as a sythe and saturn as god of time and harvest as father time later was identified as the Grim reaper in a black cloak and sythe.
Thanatos was a naked man with black feathered wings, the twin of hypnos the god of sleep, both sons of the primorial aspect of night-nyx a sister of Gaia-earth.
It was common for the militaristic romans to combine many greek aspects into one for their apaptations, the greeks being philosophers of the laws of the universe being in human form, along with the physical titans and the later olympians.
