* SpiritualSuccessor: Despite its lack of most of the Creator/MontyPython cast (only Terry Jones[[note]]Jones also directs[[/note]] and John Cleese were in this movie) [[WrongfullyAttributed many people think this is a Monty Python film]]. It has to be said it would stand up well with [[Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian Life of Brian]] and [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail The Holy Grail]], probably due to Jones's direction style.

The movie stars Tim Robbins as Erik, and features cameos by Eartha Kitt, Creator/JohnCleese, Creator/MickeyRooney, and Terry Jones himself. Jones took inspiration for the film (but not the film's title) from his own children's book, ''The Saga of Erik the Viking''.

Added DiffLines:

* VisibleToBelievers: Harald Missionary, the only Christian in Erik's crew, cannot see the Dragon of the North Sea, the Edge of the World, and the fortress of Asgard, because he considers these things as superstitions. He is even able to walk right through the walls of Asgard, which are perfectly solid for his pagan companions.

** Actually Sven's Dad is constantly on his back because he can't STOP going berserk. Turns out Sven's Dad's Dad kept going on at him for the same thing.

* ImplausibleDeniability: The people of Hy-Brasil insist their island isn't sinking, despite all evidence to the contrary. The king continues his denial even as the waters rise above his head.

* {{Atlantis}}: Called Hy Brasil[[note]]A mythical land of [[CelticMythology Irish legend.]][[/note]], but is clearly supposed to be Atlantis, even down to the Greek-stylings of the culture.

* FlatEarthAtheist: Harald the Missionary refuses to believe in the [[NorseMythology Norse Gods]] and their accompanying mythology, even when he is ''standing outside the gates of Valhalla!'' Of course, he ''cannot'' see it, or interact with it at all, because he doesn't believe in it. This causes a great deal of frustration for his crewmates, but does turn into an important plot point.

* ShownTheirWork: Terry Jones -- an academic on this stuff -- plays with the Norse mythology but sticks faithfully to a lot of tropes.

Released in 1989, ''Erik the Viking'' is a film written and directed by ''Creator/MontyPython'' alumnus Terry Jones. The movie follows the adventures of the eponymous Viking, Erik, who one day discovers that he no longer has a taste for the rape-and-pillage lifestyle of ordinary Viking life. Determined to change things, he recruits a band of his fellow Vikings to journey to Valhalla and petition Odin, King of the Gods, to put an end to the Age of Ragnarok. HilarityEnsues.

The movie stars Tim Robbins as Erik, and features cameos by Eartha Kitt, John Cleese, Mickey Rooney, and Terry Jones himself. Jones took inspiration for the film (but not the film's title) from his own children's book, ''The Saga of Erik the Viking''.
