* TheQuietOne: Vidarr, one of Odin's bastard sons, makes a short appearance in ''Through Fire and Water''. He only speaks the absolute minimum necessary to communicate (Loki claims it's because he's simple), but still manages to build up a rather friendly rapport with his half-brother Thor.



* TagalongKid: Røskva starts off as a pure example of this. Tjalfe, to a lesser degree. They both come into their own over the course of the stories.

** To be more specific: all roosters know they have to duck. The Valhal rooster know it has to dodge mjollnir ''twice''.

* FieryRedhead: Thor.

* FieryRedhead: Thor.Thor, as in the original myths, has red hair and a huge temper.



* HeterosexualLifePartners: Thor and Loki are a VitriolicBestBuds version. Though Loki is actually ''Odin's'' blood-brother, he's far more likely to hang out with Thor -- and even though they get on each other's nerves occasionally (Loki loves to insult and humiliate Thor, while Thor never hesitates to threaten Loki with savage beatings) they remain the best of friends and often go journeying together.



* ItsAllAboutMe: Loki in a nutshell. He's not actually malicious, but he ''is'' completely self-centered, and as long as he himself doesn't suffer, then the rest of the world -- even his best friend Thor -- can go hang for all he cares.

* WomenAreWiser: Frigg and Sif are definitively more grounded than their husbands. In Frigg's case this was pretty much her role in the original myths as well, and is carried over.

Freya, though she may seem giggly and ditzy at times, repeatedly shows herself to be both wiser and more cunning than most other gods.

* TheGadfly: Loki. While his primary motivation is usually {{greed}}, he also gets into all sorts of trouble just because he thinks it's funny to annoy and mess with people.

Added DiffLines:

* BrainlessBeauty: Freya is very good at playing the part when it suits her, but it is always very clear that it is an act. Freya is usually portrayed as [[TheChessmaster a chessmaster]] who can give Odin a run for his money on a good day, and far more socially astute than her nominal superiors.

* {{Bookends}}: ''The Serpent in the Abyss'' starts and ends with new arrivals coming to Valhall, and gods in disguise mingling to hear which god the warriors think is mightiest. [[spoiler:Thor blows his top when the new arrivals praise Tyr, but at the end Thor and Tyr hear the new bloods praise ''Heimdall'' they break down laughing.]]

* HappilyMarried:
** Thor and Sif, though their relationship does have a few rocky points (especially during ''Thor's Wedding''). Both have been in relationships before (Sif came to Valhall a widow and Thor has [[HeroicBastard Magni]]), but are faithful and happy together during the course of the story.
** Bragi and Idunn also seem like this, although being secondary characters their marriage is less explored.


Added DiffLines:

* WellDoneSonGuy: Tjalfe and Magni are both this towards Thor, despite only the latter being his actual son.

# ''Vølvens syner'' ("The Sibyl's Visions")

# ''Vølvens syner'' ("The Sibyl's Vala's Visions")



* ArtShift: In the last album. Roskva's visions are all presented in a painted style with no outlines.



* BigDamnHeroes: Thor comes to the last-minute rescue of Tjalfe and Røskva no less than twice in the last album.



* CharacterDevelopment: Heimdall undergoes this in Freya's Necklace. Previous volumes cast him as a pompous, cowardly fool, but Freya's charms cause a more sensitive, chivalric, and even thoughtful side of his character to come to the surface. Not to mention the fact that when he realizes the extent of Loki's mischief he goes on a rampage, finally proving that the titles he keeps harping on about (The All-Seeing Aesir, The All-Hearing Aesir) aren't just for show.

* ChasedOffIntoTheSunset: One of the albums ends this way. Earlier in the story, Loki lures a giant's horse away to make sure the giant can't complete a bet. He does this by disguising himself as a mare -- and months later, comes back with a gift for Odin, the eight-legged steed Sleipnir. Loki runs into the male horse again at the end of the story and promptly flees for his life with [[AbhorrentAdmirer the horse in pursuit]].

** It happens ''again'' with Loki in the very last album. [[spoiler: He escapes his fate at Ragnarokk and believes himself to be the last god alive. After lamenting the loss of his friends, he can't resist spouting some post-mortem insults about Thor and Heimdall... only to discover that they are NotQuiteDead after all. The last we see of Loki in the series is him once again running for his life as Thor chases him with his cart.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CuteKitten: Tjalfe gets one in the last album, as his "fylgja" (a spirit companion in the form of an animal). Initially disappointed because his fylgja isn't a cooler animal, like a big strong bear, he nevertheless falls for the kitten almost immediately.
