* BeastOfTheApocalypse: Along with Jormungandr. Brothers and children of Loki, the two were imprisoned because of their prophesied role in Ragnarok. It doesn't work. When the end times do roll around, Fenrir is freed (when his sons, Skoll and Hati devour the Sun and the Moon), and Jormungandr crawls onto land, and the two of them lead the assault on Asgard, where they batter down the gates and slay Odin and Thor respectively. By this point Fenrir is so large that his upper jaw hits the sky when he opens his mouth, Jormungandr can encircle the world, and the din they create is so loud that it causes the sky to split open, freeing Surtr and the sons of Muspel to make war on the gods.

* CanonForeigner: While most Norse gods have obvious Indo-European roots and equivalents in other Indo-European-derived religions (for example, Thor is a distant cousin of Zeus and Indra, and the Aesir and Vanir are fairly clearly related to the Asuras/Ahuras and Devas/Daevas of [[Myth/HinduMythology Hinduism]] and {{Zoroastrianism}}) Loki doesn't even appear in other Germanic myths. He seems to be unique to Scandinavian traditions and nobody's entirely sure how he got there (which, you know, is [[TricksterGod appropriate]]).
