* EyesAlwaysShut: Hoedir, to illustrate his blindness. He opens his eyes exactly once during the series, towards the end of ''The Ballad of Balder'', when he in a shared dream gets to experience sight for the first time. (His reaction: "I did think something seemed different...")

Correction: Loki is the mother, not the father, of Sleipnir (it makes sense in context).
* BlatantLies: Loki (naturally) is prone to this. He denies being the father of Sleipner, but all evidence points to him having given birth to the horse. In an earlier comic he tries to explain Fenrir's appearance the same way thus implying that he is the father of the wolf as well. He also denies being Hel's father to her face, but as far as we know this is a lie as well. He also claims to have no sexuality but keeps a lock of Freyja's hair and had the hots for Idun.

** The third album also includes a notable ShoutOut to the MarvelComics, when Odin meets [[spoiler: Balder, Thor and Loki disguised as]] three mortal warriors named Fander, Hogur and Voldsdag -- [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Lawyer Friendly Cameos]] of [[TheMightyThor Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg.]] *** Not sure if it was an intentional ShoutOut or not, but you can definitely see some traces of [[TheMightyThor Marvel's Thor]] in Tjalfe's dream sequence in the ninth album, where Thor passes Mjölnir on to him and tells him that from now on he is to be the "new Thor." In this sequence, Tjalfe is wearing a winged helmet and a red cape (and of course he's already blonde and beardless), making the parallels noticable.

* ExactWords: Like in the original myth, when Brokk wants Loki to bet his head, he means betting his ''head''. The comic shows Loki's thought process in thinking he's being metaphorical[[note]]'betting your head' in old Norse society usually meant 'the price on your head', i.e. a sum of money befitting of your wealth and station[[/note]] and, of course, his dismay at learning he's not. Like in the original myth, Loki gets out of it by pointing out that the bet never was about his ''neck''.
