In Iranian mythology and since the beginning of creation war has been a current theme. Some Iranian gods, such as Bahrām, Mitrā, Bād, Hoom and Soroush, are fighting for peace, security and purity on behalf of Ahuramazdā against Angra Mainyu (Ahriman). Myths play an important role in the collective and subconscious memory. As such, they have a profound impact on religions, arts, literature and general culture of all times. Therefore, this article examines the gods of war in the legends of Chahārmahāl and Bakhtiāri, Lorestān and Kohgiluyeh and Boyerahmad province. The research context consists of legends written in Persian in Chaharmahāl and Bakhtiāri, Lorestān and Kohgiluyeh and Boyerahmad province.

Through a careful reading of this article, the reader will understand that the gods of war such as Bahrām, Soroush, Wind and Mehr are present in the legends of these provinces, sometimes superhuman and sometimes terrestrial with metamorphoses in their appearance and function.
