* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Roskva to Tjalfe. This is especially clear in the first album, though both children go through a lot of CharacterDevelopment over the series, and Roskva proves to be the more levelheaded of the two.

* AscendedExtra: Thor's servants, Tjalfe and Roskva, are very minor characters in the original myths (Tjalfe only appears in a couple of stories, Roskva only in one), but have been given major roles in this series, serving as [[AudienceSurrogate viewpoint characters]] for several stories.
** Also, Utgards-Loki only appears in one original myth (coincidentally the same one that introduces Tjalfe and Roskva), but is a recurring villain in the comic and possibly the closest the series has to a BigBad. While not actually a threat to the gods for the most part, he does pull off quite a few [[BatmanGambit Batman Gambits]] in the hope of humiliating or harming them. He's pretty much the only major villain in the series who is not killed.

* BrilliantButLazy: Loki. When Tjalfe tells Roskva that Odin doesn't do any work because he's a king, Roskva asks if Loki's a king, too. Right before Loki, true to form, gets the kids to do his work for him.

* 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.
** Tjalfe and Roskva also go through noticable CharacterDevelopment over the course of the series; Tjalfe gradually becomes less foolish and insensitive, and more inclined to think before he acts, while Roskva goes from a naive little child to a far more insightful and intelligent young lady.
* 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]].

* NoirEpisode: "The Magic Mead", which has Odin acting as the HardboiledDetective protagonist to boot.



* PetTheDog: Loki gets a few in the first volume, Cry Wolf. He pleads with the Aesir to allow the Fenris wolf to roam free (note however that in that volume Fenris has the temperament of a loveable pooch who just happens to be oversized, even if being chained up is his BerserkButton.) Also near the end of the volume when he tells Roskva she can take Fenris out for walks as long as she isn't seen. Makes sense if you know that Fenris is Loki's son.

* 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.
