Fury is similar to Rage from the original God of War and the start of God of War Ragnarök. You unleash your anger with powerful attacks and can throw boulders at enemies. Each blow will heal Kratos, allowing you to destroy your enemies while regaining health. You can upgrade this to increase the healing you receive from attacks.

Valor is different and new to God of War Ragnarök. Instead of performing quick, powerful strikes, you split the rage meter into three chunks. Using Valor will heal a moderate amount of hp. Additionally, activating it just before an enemy strikes you will negate the incoming damage, heal for more, and give you a bonus to melee attacks. You upgrade this to increase the healing it provides.
