* GameOver: The usual game over sequence the player gets when they choose to give up with at least one active Viking alive shows an animation of the dead Vikings being placed on a burning boat out to sea, a traditional Viking sea burial. The active Viking stands on a cliff overlooking the boat's journey. Of course, nobody will be there if you got all the Vikings killed. And if you choose to continue, the dead Vikings return to life via thunderbolt.

And if you choose to continue, the dead Vikings return to life via thunderbolt. Finally, if none of the Vikings died (such as if the level was made {{Unwinnable}} and the player chose to give up), all three would be on the cliff and no burning boat would be on the water.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwinnableByDesign: Several levels are at the Polite point of the scale - while you can screw up such that you can't reach the exit (even with all party members alive), you can always restart the level an unlimited number of times, and there's never a need to backtrack to an earlier level.

* AerithAndBob: While the names "Erik" and "Olaf" have always been common in scandinavia, Baleog seems to be the only person (real or fictional) to ever bear that name.

In 1995, a long-awaited sequel was finally released (initially for the SNES and later [[VideoGameRemake remade]] for the Playstation, Saturn and PC, alternately titled ''Norse by Norsewest: The Return of the Lost Vikings''). In this game, the Vikings are again ambushed by Tomator, but the Vikings respond by mugging Tomator's minions and taking their gear, giving them new abilities. Erik gains rocket boots (which allow him to DoubleJump) and a scuba helmet (which removes his SuperDrowningSkills); Baleog takes a lightsaber and a bionic arm (which allow him to attack in eight directions, [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Belmont]]-style, and swing off certain gems), and Olaf earns a new cybernetic shield which allows him to shrink and boosts his flatulence to frightening levels. On top of that, the Vikings pick up two new characters in their travels: Fang the werewolf, who can run, jump, attack enemies, and WallJump ([[RunningGag and comically be mistaken for every furry animal under the sun but a wolf]]); and Scorch the magic dragon (who has never seen the sea, but would evidently like to check it out), who can fly and breathe fire. To keep the gameplay simple, however, the two newbies would replace one or more of the Vikings every so often, allowing the player to control [[ArbitraryHeadcountLimit no more than three characters at a time]]. The packaging is different, but the game's the same -- use the Vikings' abilities to lead them safely through stages full of {{death trap}}s until you got to Tomator.

* MediumAwareness: Very much so!

to:

* MediumAwareness: Very much so!so! The cast will discuss item placement, skill sets, and even the competence of the player (mostly, in cases where a level is repeated multiple times, the lack thereof).



* WhatTheHellPlayer: PlayedForLaughs; one of the possible results of continuing after dying is a sequence where the Vikings complain about having to play the level again and admonish the player for their incompetence.

There's another if the player quits a level 50 times, with the trio saying that there aren't any further funny lines upon repeating a level, and that the game's really fun and should be played through. [[spoiler: And one if the player quits the level one more time, noting the player is also bad at following directions.]]

The series also [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lostvikingswarcraftshoutout_5772.png contains]] a ShoutOut or two to Blizzard's more famous series, ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', which later returned the favor. Eventually, the trio made a comeback by being playable in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''
