* FiveManBand
** TheLeader: Axl/Odin - He's the All-Father. And while he's still growing up, it is his moral compass and vision that direct the larger actions of the gang.
** TheLancer: Mike/Ullr - Mike is mature where Axl is young, experienced where Axl is not, responsible where Axl is careless, considered where Axl is impulsive, and very much in charge when Axl is absent...and sometimes when he's not.
** TheSmartGuy: Anders/Braggi - by far the shortest, and least physically intimidating of the brothers, not much of leader, morally questionable--and yet a lot of Anders' dialogue consists of "stay here," "let me handle this," or "I have a plan."
** TheBigGuy: Ty/Hod - despite how [[BlessedWithSuck Ty feels]] about his assigned god, he is the most powerful of the brothers, and his ice power is actually the only one [[CursedWithAwesome useful for offensive battle]], as opposed to the other brother's passive powers of talking, winning, finding stuff, and occasionally seeing the future.
** TheChick - Olaf/Baldr is a gentle and compassionate soul, especially compared to his grandsons.

Added DiffLines:

* PantheonSitcom: The Norse gods are greatly reduced in power, and have moved to New Zealand. They can and do die, but then the god-spirit simply moves on to another descendant. Over the years since the original migration, the descendants of the gods (who are also incarnations of the gods) have lost track of each other, in part because gods (and goddesses) don't generally like each other very much.

Added DiffLines:

* GodCouple: the show features several examples. Relationships between gods and goddesses tend to be volatile, though, so many of the pairings are brief.
** The main premise of the story is that Axl (Odin) is searching for his Frigg, so that they can become one. And, not incidentally, restore the gods to their former power.
** Anders (Bragi) is a notorious womanizer until he meets Helen, who is Idun, his destined wife. But things aren't destined to end well for her.
** Ty (who is Hod, god of cold and dark) marries Eva (Hel, goddess of the underworld). It doesn't end well either.
** Colin (Loki) hooks up with Michele (Sjöfn, a minor goddess with a major chip on her shoulder about it) for a while, till she gets sick of his antics and says goodbye with a [[GroinAttack knee to the groin]].
** Mike (Ullr), whose mortal wife has left him, and Michele, who has just dumped Colin, end up forming one of the more stable god couples in the show. Possibly because there's no destiny involved--they just like each other.
** Olaf (Baldr, god of rebirth) and Ingrid (Snotra, goddess of wisdom) seem to be heading towards a loose, stoner version of a relationship, but it doesn't work out, and Olaf ends up in an equally loose relationship with Stacey (Fulla, handmaiden of Frigg).

Added DiffLines:

* DivineDate: The show features ''lots'' of this. Anders (aka Bragi, the god of poetry) may be the most prominent example, with a non-stop stream of women unable to resist his seductive powers, but all the gods (and goddesses) are pretty randy. Even Ty (who is Hod, the god of cold and darkness) manages to find a girlfriend, and then ends up marrying someone else (at least temporarily). There's plenty of god/goddess-on-mortal action and god-on-god action throughout the whole show.

The story revolves around Axl Johnson (Emmett Couling Skilton), a typical university student who has just turned 21 years old--an event which triggers weird signs all over UsefulNotes/{{Auckland}}. Upon turning 21, his brothers tell him that he and his brothers are [[PhysicalGod reincarnated Norse Gods]], although their powers have diminished over the years. It took a lightning bolt to make him realize the truth about his godhood, and he discovers that he is the physical incarnation of the god Odin. After a rival goddess shoots an arrow which nearly pierces his heart, fulfilling the prophecy that proves he is Odin, his older brother Mike (Timothy Balme) tells him about his quest: In order to get all their powers back, Axl (Odin) has to find his soulmate, Frigg, and seal the deal. If he doesn't find her before he dies, his whole family dies with him. However, several goddesses have united to prevent him from finding Frigg, including the one who tried to kill him earlier.

The quest involves several [[RedHerring Red Herrings]], including a netballer, a librarian, a homely daughter to a god, and even a goddess. Although the show centers around Axl's quest, it also gives character development to the other brothers, especially Ty and Mike, who refuses to use his god powers because of an incident which left his best friend in a coma.
