** Nowadays There's no consensus on how early or late an addition Loki tends was to be the myths but upon the rediscovery of Norse Myth in the 19th Century, he quickly became one of the most popular among mythology fans, discussed and that speculated figures, continuing well into the 20th Century, and this was before the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse made the Marvel version of him super popular with young women.women. Somewhere Loki will be gloating, because sneaking in from the margins and hijacking and stealing the spotlight from the Aesir would appeal to his vanity.



* 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...

** Sigyn. By all that's holy, Sigyn. Loki's wife, whom he [[YourCheatingHeart cheats on with Angrboða]] (though she may have been a second wife or the whole affair may have been over before Sigyn came into the picture) but he still cheats on both of them with everybody else, up to animals - and sometimes bears illegitimate children. When Loki is punished with a FateWorseThanDeath, her son is turned into mad wolf and kills his brother, whose remains are used to chain Loki in a cave under the earth. She chooses to stay down there, and collects the venom from a snake placed there by Skadi which otherwise would drip into his eyes.

** Sigyn. By all that's holy, Sygin. Loki's (sometimes [[DomesticAbuser abused]]) wife, whom he [[YourCheatingHeart cheats on with Angrboða]] (though she may have been a second wife) but he still cheats on 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, 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, even though she could live the rest of her life in glory in Asgard, and collects poison from giant snake that should fall on his face, but sometimes she has to empty the bowl...he doesn't appreciate her help or devotion one bit.

** 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 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.

* 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.
