* AcceptableBreaksFromReality:
** Olmar and Garm act like JapaneseDelinquents (including ridiculous hair which they must spend a lot of time on...) in medieval Europe. Chalk it up to RuleOfFunny.
** On that note, most characters are fairly Japanese in spirit. It's easy to equate Japanese samurai and Danish vikings, as they are both warrior cultures, and there certainly are similarities, but there ''are'' differences between them.
** [[RuleOfCool Thorkell's physical feats]].



* RatedMForManly: Baddass action with no girl in sight, and ManlyTears in appropiate moments. This manga will make your chest grow hair on its own.

* RuleOfCool: The fight scenes; some have complained that all the awesome detracts from the history.
** Who are these people? They need to be punched like a horse, now.

mightiest warriors just seem [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower downright superhuman]]. Not realistic, but still appreciated.



* ShoutOut: At one point there's a background character that looks suspiciously like Hagar the Horrible. Also Vicky, Ylfi and others from Vicky the Viking appear in two crowd shot. There are numerous others, mostly historical ones, littered through out.
** The Frank Chieftain is named [[StarWars Jabbathe]], think about it for a moment.

* ShownTheirWork: Yukimura has often noted the pains he took to be as accurate as possible, such as the journey he took to Iceland at the beginning of his work on the story, and how he used a variety of historical and apocryphal stories to base his characters on.
** His research was effective. The weapons, armor, and outfits are accurate. You won't find [[YouFailHistoryForever vikings in horned hats duking it out with knights in plate armor]] here.

** In chapter 20, Thorfinn is interrupted from his sleep in a barn when some of his comrades bring in an English woman, ready to rape her. We'd expect Thorfinn to do something... but he doesn't. But hey, it's a story about [[RapePillageAndBurn Vikings]].
*** However, he does walk out, seemingly with a look of jaded disgust on his face.

* CurbStompCushion: Also happens on occasion, showcasing that even when a battle looks like a done deal the 'loser' may still get a lucky blow. Thorfinn's first battle against Thorkell is one example: Despite being thoroughly trounced by the bigger and more experienced fighter Thorfinn escapes relatively intact and takes off two of Thorkell's fingers.

* WorthyOpponent: When 13-year-old Thorfinn is dueling Thorkell, a grown man and longtime Viking, Thorkell is impressed enough with how well the youngster is doing to casually brain one of his followers for laughing at Thorfinn's BadassBoast.

It's a HistoricalFiction retelling of the classical Viking sagas known as Literature/{{The Vinland Sagas}}, although focusing on Thorfinn Karlsefni rather than on Leif Erikson.
