* ''VinlandSaga'' fitting for a story about Vikings, [[BloodKnight Thorkell]] talks about how the Jomsvikings all dream of dying on the battle field and being picked up by Odin's maidens.

* The ''ValkyrieProfile'', as you may have guessed, centers around the exploits of the Valkyries themselves, and how it affects the lives of those they choose as Einherjar. The Valkyrie job is played straight (see UrExample above) it's arguably a {{Deconstruction}} of the [[{{Bowdlerization}} popular Valkyrie image]].

* The free flash game ''Wulfgar'' unusually features one as a recurring antagonist. Showing up in each level to summon minibosses against the title character, she is finally fought and killed in the penultimate, third level. [[spoiler:Turns out to be a HeroAntagonist, since the main character was actually manipulated by [[BigBad Lo]][[GodOfEvil ki]] to destroy all of his enemies and she was trying to prevent that. Luckily, you do end up [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu beating the tar out of Loki himself]] to make things right.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' has the titular character fighting and defeating a [[TragicMonster monstrous rock-warrior]] cursed in the form by the BigBad centuries ago. He has spent the intervening years waiting for a WorthyOpponent who can defeat him in honorable combat (so that he can join his fallen comrades in Valhalla). After Jack defeats him, he is freed from the curse and restored to his human form, but after centuries of living, his once dashing appearance [[NoImmortalInertia rapidly ages]] into an old man as Valkyries descend and take him into Valhalla.

* The walcyrya of Elizabeth Bear's ''Edda of Burdens'' trilogy subvert the trope by having both male and female members. And of course, this being an Elizabeth Bear production there is a healthy dose of same sex

* Namco has a series of games known as ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfValkyrie'', involving a blonde Valkyrie fighting monsters; it also received a web comic called ''Webcomic/LegendOfTheValkyrie''. She's something of a SeriesMascot for Namco: besides her appearances in ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'', she also has cameos in various games like ''Franchise/TalesOf'' and ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur''.

** The ''Legion'' expansion provides further background on them: [[spoiler:they are actually much ''older'' than the Lich King and he simply subverted the ones in Northrend to his service. The Val'kyr of Stormheim are ''not happy'' about this, or of Sylvanas' further appropriation of the wayward Northrend ones and her efforts to "recruit" more.]]

* This is how ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'''s [[SpaceWolf Space Wolves]] are recruited - their Rune Priests often wander amongst the primitive human tribes of Fenris, observing young warriors in battle. Those that perform well but are mortally-wounded are rescued on the brink of death and ferried away to the Space Wolves' fortress-monastery, where they are healed and subjected to the crucible that is a Space Marine's initiation process. The Rune Priests even get psyber-linked raven familiars to act as their eyes, specifically called "Choosers of the Slain."
* In TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy, Khorne the Chaos God of war, battle, berserker rage, bloodthirst, and hate has his own Valkyries who are basically Daemon Princesses who are dedicated to him. Foremost amongst these is the [[SarcasmMode perplexingly named]] Valkia the Bloody. Who is said to choose the devout of Khorne who fall honourably in battle to fight on in their god's mighty daemonic legions in the hellscapes of the Realm of Chaos. It's also worth noting that Valkia and the majority of Khorne's followers tend to rise up from the brutal Norscan tribes; who are a race of Chaos worshiping HornyVikings who are also the most fearsome and devout servants of the Chaos Gods, Valkia is also known by many names which include 'the Shield-Maiden of Khorne', and she bears to battle the daemon-possessed Chaos spear known as ''"Slaupnir"'', an artifact and gift from her aforementioned war god. Just in care you weren't convinced that she is a crazy Viking.
