Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* CloserToEarth: Sif to Thor, and Frigg to Odin. The latter's case is even explicitly canon, as Frigg was the Goddess of Wisdom in Norse mythology and considered wiser than (if not necessarily cleverer or as knowing as) her husband. In general, the female gods are a lot less blustery and prideful than their male counterparts.

*** She's even more upset when they come up with a 'better plan' (they decide to dress up ''Thor'' instead) and ditch her, and their previous plan, as an afterthought.

** Thrym's wedding becomes one to Thor. The rest of the series makes it a RunningGag that he's unable to live down having dressed as a woman and flies off the handle out whenever anyone mentions it.
** Tyr's appearance beneath his bowlcut, [[spoiler:which reveal his Jotun heritage and his unhappy family life]].
** Heimdall's gets pressed when Loki disrespects Freya.
** Hoedir being pitied, or unfavourably compared to his brother.

Added DiffLines:

* 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...")

** In "Odin's Wager" Odin meets a HotBlooded warrior who betrays his Lord, because he was ordered to [[MoralEventHorizon kill surrendering enemies.]] This character is a near carbon copy of ConanTheBarbarian.

* 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.

''Valhalla'' is a Danish comic series by Henning Kure (script) and Peter Madsen (script and artwork) that chronicles the stories of the [[NorseMythology Norse gods]] in a mostly lighthearted and humorous way. It started out as a [[NewspaperComics newspaper comic]], the first story, ''Cry Wolf,'' being printed as a serial strip in the Danish newspaper ''Politiken'' in 1978 and then the following year being collected and reprinted in album format.
