* UngratefulBastard: Dag prays to Odin to help him avange the death of his father. Odin lends him his spear and Dag waylays his father's kiler. When Dag's sister later calls him out on the killing, Dag calls her sister mad and complains that Odin causes all strifes with his runes. Never mind ''he'' asked for Odin's aid in the murder.

One of the two works referred to as ''Literature/{{Edda}}s'', the ''Poetic Edda'' is actually not a single, fixed work, but a collective term for poetry on stories and themes from Myth/{{Norse mythology}} as found in old UsefulNotes/{{Iceland}}ic manuscripts. The bulk of these poems, however, is contained in a single manuscript, the ''Codex Regius'', a work first compiled c. 1230 CE (though the only exemplar we have was created c. 1270 CE). The poems themself are thought to date from various points between the 10th and 13th century. The exact dating of individual poems has always been subject to debate.

Those lays that are considered part of the ''Poetic Edda'', but are not found in the ''Codex Regius'', are sometimes called the ''Eddica Minora'' ("lesser Eddic lays"). All the lays of the ''Poetic Edda'' are generally of anonymous authorship.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingBothSides: Odin helps Dag murder Helgi, but clearly favours Helgi since he allows Helgi to humiliate Helgi's olde enemy Hunding once the two meets in Valhalla.

* TheWeirdSisters: According to "Voluspa", the sacred Well of Urd is guarded by three Norns (goddesses of fate) by the names of Urd ("fate"), Verdandi ("happening") and Skuld ("destiny"). The guardians of the Well of Urd are consistently referred to as "maidens".

** {{Valkyries}}, the supernatural women who determine who is going to die in a battle, frequently come in threes or multiples of three: There is a list of six valkyries in "Voluspa" and a list of twelve in "Grimnismal". The young Helgi Hjorvardsson sees nine valkyries riding by, and the giantess Hrimgred mentions she has seen Helgi being followed by twenty-seven valkyries who protect him.
** Volund and his two brothers encounter three valkyries spinning flax on the shore of a lake, and by taking their swan garments prevent them from turning into birds and flying away.
