** The original myths state that there are four afterlives (possibly even more). Those who die in battle go to Valhalla and Folkvagnr to prepare for Ragnarok. Those who drown belong to Ran. Those who die of sickness or old age go to Hel, which is dull and dreary, but not a bad place. Those who die after committing what the Norse regarded as sins[[note]]which in and of itself is a very Jewish/Christian/Muslim term[[/note]] (such as oathbreaking) are punished by being sent to Na-strond, which is described as a monstrous fortress, located somewhere in Hel, woven from the poison-dripping skeletons of serpents, situated behind several deadly rivers, and where the damned wade through sucking blood and have nothing to drink but the urine supplied by a herd of foul-tempered black goats that roam the fortress. Some versions of the myths even state that Na-strond is where [[EldritchAbomination Níðhöggr]] goes to get his meals.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: Well, to start with Thor means [[MeaningfulName thunder]]. But also the literal translation of [[DropTheHammer Mjolnir]] is ''crusher''. Yes, apparantly Thor follows the same naming conventions as macho men with their dogs.

* ProperlyParanoid: He lives in constant fear that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ragnarok]] will start. He thus abstains from eating, and only drinks the mead produced by his [[MakesSenseInContext nanny goat]] in case someone tries to poison his food.

Added DiffLines:

* {{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.

* SparedByTheAdaption: Thor was so popular, he essentially survived the transition to Christianity and had new stories connected to him for several hundreds of years. Thus, he is the hero of a JustSoStory telling of how he made a famous mountain pass in Norway. Also a case of AdaptationDisplacement, as a ''church'' features prominently in the narrative.
