In 2016, Square Enix announced a new entry to the series entitled ''Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin'' for iOS and Android devices. It serves as a prequel (for real this time, it seems like) and features a younger-looking Lenneth with a redesigned outfit.

*** Then again, some sources also refer that the Norns could take role as valkyries, but they can act more independently compared to the "traditional" ones (since they don't need to answer to Odin and Freya) and some skaldic sagas mentioned that the Norns are possibly half-elven. Unintentional FridgeBrilliance kicks in for what the Seal Rating's functions and the meta-background of Lezard [[spoiler: using a half-elven homunculus to revive Lenneth]] are.

* DeathOrGloryAttack: Any weapon with a low enough Attack Trust stat can turn ''all'' of the character's attacks into one - the stat shows how far below the regular attack stat any given attack could land, so a 100 will always attack at full power, while a 50 could be at only half power. Notably, the InfinityPlusOneSword, the Angel Slayer, has both the highest attack and the lowest Attack Trust; any given attack with it has the chance of [[ScratchDamage only doing 1 damage]] or pulling a OneHitKO on nearly anything.

*** Thankfully, as long as you send up at least one person in each chapter, your rating gets reset to 100 (or 98 if you don't have the ring on) on sacred phases, so unless you purposefully clear out 5+ dungeons in a single chapter (which is only really possible if you skip some of them over in a previous chapter) and keep every item, you don't have to give up any of them.

** Lenneth hears the name of a vampire early that had indirectly resulted in the death of [[spoiler:Belenus]], one of the first characters you recruit. She then commits this to memory to look out for them, but you never fight them. It's certainly not Genevieve (who herself qualifies in Normal mode, since the final battle with her is in a Hard mode exclusive dungeon).
** Celia's fate is never detailed; it's likely that she died during Ragnarok. Granted, there are a lot of other mortals whose fate is never explained, but you see Celia in ''so'' many recruitment scenes that it seems almost like you'll get them eventually!
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Lenneth just doesn't seem to ''get'' the motivations of some of the mortals, especially the ones who seem to do illogical things for love.
