* TearJerker: Loki's eventual punishment and the agony he goes through, made worse by the fact that, originally, he had nothing to do with Baldur's death, but claimed such among other taunts after the other Aesir didn't invite him to their dinner and spent the time before his arrival talking about him behind his back. The Baldur thing seemed to have been a retcon to make the other gods look less like assholes for it. ** Also, there's something so sad about him having [[MouthStitchedShut his lips sewn shut]] and all the others laughing at him. Then again, even before [[HijackedByJesus he was turned into a Satan expy]], he was still kind of a dick, and it doesn't seem to hamper him in later myths. *** Sigyn. By all that's holy, Sygin. Loki's ( sometimes [[DomesticAbuser abused]]) wife, whom he [[YourCheatingHeart cheats on with Angrboša a]]- thought she may be second wife, but he still cheates both of them with everybody else, up to animals- and sometimes bears illegitimate children. Aside from Loki performing great crime [[DependingOnTheWriter depending whom you ask]] and being punished with [[FateWorseThanDeath fate worse than death]], her son is turned into mad wolf and kills his brother, whose remains are used to chain Loki. She, being very loyal, unlike him, stays down there-when she could live rest of life in glory in Asgard-, and collects poison from giant snake that should fall on his face, but sometimes she has to empty bowl... He doesn't appreciate her help or devotion one bit.

** Nowadays Loki tends to be one of the most popular among mythology fans, and that was before the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse made the Marvel version of him super popular with young women.

* TearJerker: Loki's eventual punishment and the agony he goes through. (Made worse by the fact that, originally, it was an unnamed woman who didn't cry for Baldur.)

** The concept of Valhalla and Sessrumnir. People often talk about how they eat at Odin's table and are served mead by hot {{Action Girl}}s. But when they are not eating they are fighting. Maiming each other without dying and regenerating. Forever, or at least until Ragnarök. Drinking with Odin sounds more like making yourself numb with alcohol to deal with the horror.

* HaveAGayOldTime / HilariousInHindsight: Loki is a jotun, which is sometimes localized as troll, and may have inspired the word. During the the age of the Internet, the term "{{troll}}" took on a whole new meaning: a person who sows chaos and discord (sometimes ForGreatJustice, sometimes ForTheLulz), which is Loki's raison d'źtre. But wait, it gets ''better:'' trolls are known for "flaming" others, and guess what color Loki's hair is? Here's a hint: one of his kennings is "Flame-Hair." Bow before your god, all ye Internet trolls.

* MisaimedFandom: Unfortunately, due to the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] deification of all things blond and blue-eyed, a disproportionate number of the "fans" of Norse mythology you'll find these days are Wotanists, a neo-nazi white supremacist sect who wish to return the lighter-skinned "to their ancestral religion." How these nutters would react to the fact that Norse mythology is heavily connected to other Proto-Indo-European religions, with such concepts as a world tree and serpent being observed as far as India and Persia. ** The concept of Valhalla ans Sessrumnir.

Commenting out because "jotnar" are giants, not trolls. Trolls are a specific kind of spirit—not a kind of jotun. If anyone wants to reword this entry to make factual sense, be my guest. I'm putting my reason in commented-out markup in case a troper doesn't look to the history for an explanation.
