Both are notable figures of Authority who primarily weild Earth-Attribute Monsters and are the first opponents the protaganist faces in their respective series. They also hold an intense grudge toward the protagonist that fades as the series progresses.

Team 5D's fourth opponents. They were shown to be very important when they were immune to Yliaster's changes to history, due to having a new set of God Cards (the Aesir, based on Norse mythology). They're notable for being the very first Divine Type Monsters since the 3 Egyptian god cards from the [[Anime/YuGiOh very first series]], as well as the first Divine type of Synchro monsters.

All three use Nordic decks built around summoning Aesir. Dragan uses Nordic Beasts and swarming effects to summon Thor, Brave uses Nordic Alfars to Summon Loki supported by a large number of Trap cards, and Harald uses Nordic Ascendants to summon Odin coupled with a large number of burn effects.

Team 5D's fourth opponents. third opponent. They were shown only have one D-Wheel that Yusei fixes prior to be very important when their match, and they were immune to Yliaster's changes to history, due to having a new set of God Cards (the Aesir, based on Norse mythology). They're notable for being the very first Divine Type Monsters since the 3 Egyptian god have classic cards from the [[Anime/YuGiOh very first series]], Generation of Duel Monsters that Yusei seems to recognize as well as the first Divine type of Synchro monsters.

being similar to Yugi's deck.

All three use Nordic stall burn decks built consisting primarily of low-level Normal monsters and common Spell and Trap cards from early sets, all based around summoning Aesir. Dragan uses Nordic Beasts and swarming effects to summon Thor, Brave uses Nordic Alfars to Summon Loki supported by a large number of Trap cards, and Harald uses Nordic Ascendants to summon Odin coupled with a large number of burn effects.Zushin the Sleeping Giant.



* AnimeHair: The team with the most impressive, cool-looking and spikey hair styles, but all of them being impossible. Aside from Dragan and Brave's MultiColoredHair, Harald's hair is connected with his ''eyebrows''.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Basically every single word that comes out of their mouth is either talking shit about Yusei and the others, or about how great they and the Nordic Gods are.
* BackFromTheDead: Doubles as DeathIsCheap. This is the main effect of the three gods, which give a bonus when coming back. Brave, being the [[TricksterArchetype cunning duelist]] he is, exploits the hell out of Thor's effect in his duels with Jack and Crow.
* BackgroundBoss: Odin, who is so absurdly huge that he's forced to stay in the background.
* TheBerserker:
** When not dueling, Harald is perfectly calm and collected. During an actual duel... [[HotBlooded not so much]].
** Of course, that says nothing about Dragan's idea of pounding Jack into the dust with Thor, and Brave repeatedly mentioning getting 'god killed' over and over.
* BigOlEyebrows: Dragan, which is not quite obvious at first, since his eyebrows are also multi-colored like his hair.
* ColonelBadass: Before finding Dragan and Brave, Harald used to be a colonel and he was apparently part of the air force. He saved a subordinate and himself from crashing on a mountain by blowing the head up with missiles.
* ComplexityAddiction: Harald seems to have one of these, and it cost him his duel with Yusei. Already having gotten rid of Majestic Star Dragon and having a massive field advantage with his team's three Aesir, Harald keeps playing cards that he thinks will completely ensure his victory over Yusei rather than just using the Gods and their powerful effects to just crush Yusei underfoot. Yusei ends up turning all of those cards against him to not only bring out Shooting Star Dragon, but to depower all of the Aesir and banish them.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: After their defeat, they're a lot friendlier towards Team 5Ds and even help them invade Ark Cradle.
* DubNameChange: Brave to Broder, and Harald to Halldor in the English dub. [[OddNameOut Oddly enough, Dragan keeps his name from the Japanese version.]]
* {{Expy}}: Team Ragnarok resembles the Doma trio from ''Duel Monsters'' as a whole, since each member of them is a rival to Team 5D's three wheelers. Like Amelda hated Kaiba, Dragan has his own grudge on Jack. Like Varon had a similar backstory and personality like Jonouchi, Brave has a similar backstory and personality like Crow. And like Rafael believed that Atem was an evil king, Harald believes that Yusei is connected with the destiny of destruction.
* TheFatalist: To be fair, when you're associated with Norse mythology, this is kinda your schtick.
* FreudianTrio: Brave is the Id, Dragan is the Ego, and Harald is the Superego.
* GambitRoulette: Brave does this with Crow, [[CurbStompBattle thrashing him at every single turn for most of their match]].
* HeroAntagonist: They want to stop Team New World (The Three Emperors of Yliaster), but are unwilling to work together with the Signers because of Yusei's father being the one who created Momentum (which led to Zero Reverse).
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Harald especially, due to travelling across the world and being in the military.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In the end, it's their own card that defeated their gods.
* LargeAndInCharge: The most powerful of the Aesir, Odin, is probably the third largest monster to date, towering over the city and easily dwarfing the other two. To put it in perspective, Odin is in the background during the entire duel and is ''still'' bigger than the other two. To put it in ''further'' perspective, Odin towers over the Egyptian Gods and the Sacred Beasts as well.
* LargeHam: Brave likes to pretend that his opponent is doing a serious threat to his strategies before activating his trap cards. He's also the only one [[IncrediblyLamePun brave enough]] to stand up in the middle of a Riding Duel. Harald even notes how audacious he gets in trolling his opponents.
* TheLeader: Harald.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Harald has very long hair and he's probably the most qualified {{bishounen}} among the cast. He used to have short hair, though.
* MagicalEye: Their left eyes have magical powers and are known as Rune Eyes. Not to be confuses with a certain monster from ''[[Anime/YuGiOhArcV ARC-V]]''.
* MeaningfulName: All three of them are meaningful in some way, but Brave stands out the most. He takes very bold actions in his duels, from standing on his D-Wheel to make a BadassBoast, to invoking an extremely reckless strategy that involves destroying Thor ''repeatedly'' and letting Crow take out large amounts of his life points to get part of his plan going.
* MultiColoredHair:
** Dragan has black and blond hair. Even his thick ''eyebrows'' are black and blond.
** Brave has red and orange hair.
* Myth/NorseMythology: Most of their cards are based on this.
* NotSoDifferent: Brave cares for a group of children and is a trickster duelist, just like Crow.
* NotSoStoic: Harald is usually very calm and has a very tranquil voice, but he suddenly becomes hammy and more emotional when he's dueling.
* RippleEffectProofMemory: The Aesir cards they hold protect them from temporal distortions.
* ThrowingTheFight: During Jack's reign as King, Dragan participated in a fixed match against him in order to get financial aid for his injured father. He isn't happy about it (and neither is Jack when he finds out), so when the WRGP pits them against one another again, both give it their all to settle their match for real.
* TreasureHunter: Brave's previous profession.
* TheTrickster: Brave and his Aesir Loki (who is the actual Trickster God of Myth/NorseMythology) are considered this. He even has a nickname in-universe because of it being his prominent dueling trait. He had Crow on his knees with nothing but well-placed traps and exploiting Thor's abilities
* UnexplainedAccent: Harald, with his dub-only British accent, is supposed to be Norwegian.
* WalkingTheEarth: Harald did a journey around the world to see it in a different perspective. After completing it, he received Odin.
* YouFightLikeACow: Brave does this ''a lot''.

** Even though they're proud of their teamwork, Andore alone won all of their duels by himself before they met Team 5D's. This actually works to their advantage, since neither Breo nor Jean had any recorded data about them before the duel with 5D's.
** Despite their perfect teamwork, they lost because Jean's last move was for himself. Although Andore and Breo understood his motivation and encouraged him to attack Yusei's monster.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Their ace card, Zushin the Sleeping Giant, is this ''in-Universe''. It's also revealed that practically everyone owns a copy of Zushin, but no one ever managed to summon him. Even Team Taiyoh themselves only managed to summon him in their duel with Team 5Ds, having won their other matches with the burn effect of Speed World 2.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Their ace card, Zushin the Sleeping Giant, is this ''in-Universe''. It's also revealed in-universe, most likely as a dig against the real game's tendency to churn out powerful monsters with impossible summoning conditions. Zushin has incredibly powerful effects that practically have been compared to the God Cards, but it has a ridiculous summoning condition that makes it impossible to summon in a serious duel.[[note]]It's telling that the real-life verion of Zushin is ''buffed'' compared to the show's version, as its summoning condition has several loopholes that allow it to be somewhat expedited.[[/note]] Practically everyone owns has a copy of Zushin, but no one ever managed to summon him. at a Common rarity at that, shown when the audience members all whip out copies of the card from nowhere when Taiyou's copy is summoned. Even Team Taiyoh Taiyou themselves only managed to summon him Zushin in their duel with Team 5Ds, having won their other matches with the burn effect of Speed World 2.

* OneHitKill: Averted. He employs a self-milling strategy in his Duel against Z-one with intention to guarantee that he draws Afterglow during the Draw Phase and deplete all of Z-one's LP in one go, but it backfires on Aporia hard after his Graveyard is shuffled back into his Deck and doesn't draw the card he needs.
