* ''VideoGame/Dominions'' - Helheim has these as sacred flying units with lightning spears and Helheim's trademark ability of creating illusory copies of themselves. They trade the "guiding souls of dead warriors" part for "making said warriors dead in the first place", though.

* The ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' episode "Valhalley of the Dolls" featured Valkyries. They inhabit Valhalla and save the souls of dying innocents who are warriors of some kind - and have them train to face the final battle. As only male warriors are seen, {{Fanon}} imagines female warriors becoming Valkyries themselves (as the sisters do briefly).

* 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.
