You'd expect Vikings to have Norse accents (well you would, if not for The Coconut Effect), but in film they're usually portrayed with Scottish accents (when they're not portrayed with the local accent of whereever the movie was made, that is). This is most likely a Translation Convention derived from the fact that Scottish accents are significantly more intimidating than Norse ones

Compare to The Queen's Latin
