* MagnificentBastard: His stealing of the mead of poetry certainly put his in this box. Kvasir (the combination of all of the Æsir's and Vanir's combined wisdom made flesh) is murdered by greedy dwarfs who turn him into the mead of poetry. The mead is later handed over to the giant Suttung as compensation for another murder commited by the dwarfs. Odin decides to take possesion of the mead and conducts as scheme where he tricks the slaves of Suttung's brother Baugi to kill each other. He then offers Baugi to stand in for them in exchange for a taste of the mead. Baugi agrees, but his brother won't put out. So Odin and Baugi decides to steal the poetry. They drill a hole into the wall of Suttung's keep. Baugi then tries to backstab Odin and kill him to get all the mead for himself. But Odin turns into a snake and sneaks into the hole before Baugi can harm him. Odin then encounters Suttung's daughter Gunnlöd. How does he deal with her? [[TheCasanova Well he seduces her of course! Gunnlöd allows him to gulp up all of the mead and flies away in the shape of an eagle. Sutting tries to follow in eagle form, but Odin litterary [[ToiletHumour poops in Suttung's face]] and then spits of the mead in huge barrels once he comes home to Asgard. He then shares his loot with the other gods and humanity as well.

* {{Golem}}: If you read the ProseEdda closely, you will find that Thor is Odin´s oldest son, and that he is the "son of Earth". Whether Odin actually ''made him of earth'', is a moot point, but the text can easily be read like that. In other sources, his mother's name is Jord, Earth, making him the literal son of earth.

* CainAndAbel: To Odin, his bloodbrother.



* CainAndAbel: To Odin, his bloodbrother.



* InformedAbility: A heavy case of DependingOnTheWriter, but his status as a trickster. In some stories he does get the better of his opponents. In others his tricks are so obvious that everyone immediately knows it was him, and he comes across as TooDumbToLive for even trying them. A notable case is when he shaved Sif's head.

* LightIsNotGood: Over time, he acquired an association with fire (due to a RougeAnglesOfSatin-- Logi is the Norse personification of fire), and tends to be portrayed as a {{Bishounen}} much like Lucifer.

* WeakButSkilled: Odin invokes this by his sacrifice of one of his eyes in exchange for wisdom, which allows him to outwit and undermine his enemies. He has essentially willingly given up some of his pure combat prowess in exchange for being a superior tactician.

The blood brother of Odin, Loki is technically a god--one of the Aesir. As in Norse culture, once you are adopted, you are officially one of the tribe--and therefore are a part of the family. So even though Loki was a child of giants (which were the primal forces in Norse Mythology), he was also one of the Aesir. He's a TricksterArchetype who has been often turned into a {{Satan}} [[HijackedByJesus equivalent]]. Also known as "the sly god" and "father of the wolf". He was born the giant Farbauti and the giantess Laufey, his biological brothers are Helblindi and Býleistr.
