Andreas God Warriors

     Andreas Rize 
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (JP)


     Frodi of Gullinbursti 
Voiced by: Hiroshi Okamoto (JP)

  • Attack Drone: He can remotely manipulate his sword in order to achieve this effect.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Very proud of his abilities and with excellent reasons to be so, as he was capable of matching Aioria's power and skill with those of his own.
  • The Cape: He has a fair share of heroic qualities; including loyalty, bravery, honor, zeal and love. He would've been a magnificent hero if he wasn't fighting for the villainous side... And in the end, he becomes just that.
  • Badass Cape
  • Beam Spam: His signature move. He launches it in a similar way to Seiya's Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken and Aiorias' Lighting Plasma, which are also classic examples of this trope.
  • Bishōnen
  • Bifurcated Weapon: His sword can split into multiple fragments that he can control remotely.
  • Childhood Friends: With Lyfia. He become a God warrior in order to be able to protect her.
  • Cool Sword: Siegschwert. Because he's able to fragment it and control it remotely, it also serves as a Flechette Storm and Storm of Blades all in one!
  • The Dragon: If not the leader of the new God Warriors, he'll definitely be this to Andreas.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Lyfia is killed by Utgard, he defects from the side of the God Warriors by letting Aiolia go and fighting against Utgard.
  • Honor Before Reason: His blind devotion to Asgard's well-being and future prevented him to see the misery Andreas had brought upon them all since he revived Yggdrasil. His true Heel–Face Turn happens when he finally manages to see that truth.
  • Multi-Melee Master: He excels in combat with both swords and fists.
  • The Rival: To Aioria since episode 1.

     Fafner of Nidhogg 
Voiced by: Kentaro Ito (JP)

  • The Evil Genius: He's seen experimenting with the roots of Yggdrasil.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Deathmask, knowing that he can't kill Fafner or else Helena's siblings will die, traps his body in the Yomotsu Hirasaka, the entrance to the world of the dead, instead, leaving the bastard between life and death for all of eternity.
  • For the Evulz: Is considered the most vicious and cruel God Warrior.
  • Gonk: The ugliest of the God Warriors.
  • Jerkass: Which makes his final fate at the hands of Deathmask all the more satisfying.
  • Mad Scientist: Fafner is willingly using anything or anyone to use in his experimentations, even humans.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: One of the ways he obtains his research material is by pretending to offer the sick among Asgard free treatment. Which helps boost Andreas's public image.

     Heracles of Tanngrisnir 
Voiced by: Yuji Ueda

  • Badass Armfold
  • The Brute: The strongest and the largest of the seven God Warriors.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Heracles fought Aldebaran twice during the series. Both times, Aldebaran outmatched him.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Tried to use this to stop Aldebaran from destroying the statue that he's guarding. It didn't work.
  • Evil Counterpart: Towards Aldebaran, right down to using the same pose as him.
  • Ignored Epiphany: Realizes he had lost his way during his final batle with Aldebaran, but chooses to die fighting against him anyways.
  • Would Hurt a Child: More than willing to attack children if it will get Aldebaran to fight him.

     Sigmund of Grane 
Voiced by: Tooru Nara (JP)

  • The Berserker: Under Andreas' Mind Control. Bonus points for becoming an actual Berserker.
  • BFS / Whip Sword: Concept artwork of his sword shows that yes, it's pretty big and it can bend in a way that resembles a dragon's tail.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily defeated by Saga. To put this into perspective, Saga heavily damaged Sigmund's God Robe with a casual unnamed attack as well as being unable to mount a significant enough offensive against the Gold Saint throughout their entire battle.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Once his brother's spirit, through his God Robe, and Saga convince him that vengeance is not what Siegfried would have wanted.
  • It's Personal: He's Siegfried's older brother and considers him a victim of the war between Athena and Poseidon.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red towards Surt's Blue.
  • Remember the New Guy?: No hints of Siegfried having a brother were given during the Asgard Arc. Soul of Gold explains that he was imprisoned for speaking out against the possessed Hilda.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He knew how Siegfried died, but blames both Athena and Poseidon for his death anyway.

     Surt of Eikþyrnir 
Voiced by: Isshin Chiba

  • Affably Evil: His treatment of Camus and his open trust towards him.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Had no qualms about setting a trap for Milo, knowing his duel with Camus would result in a stalemate.
  • Expy: Of Marine General Kraken Isaac from the Poseidon Saga. Much like Cygnus Hyoga was the sparring partner of, and has a personal debt to Isaac, Camus was the sparring partner of Surt, and has a debt to pay too.
  • Flaming Sword: His weapon is a sword with a blue flame.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue towards Sigmund, ironically.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He was a Childhood Friend of Camus' and they got along very well. The accidental death of his sister by Camus' hand became his Start of Darkness.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Camus.

     Balder of Hraesvelgr 
Voiced by: Yuuki Tai

  • A God Am I: Thinks himself to have become one once he bargained with a god for power. Shaka puts him in his place very quickly.
  • Blessed with Suck: He was given god-like invulnerability in exchange for his love of humanity and his sense of remorse. Once Shaka defeats him, all the damage he didn't receive through all the years collectively battered on him in a manner of minutes, to which Shaka had the grace of numbing his senses so that he could die a peaceful death at the least.
  • Evil Counterpart: Towards Shaka.
  • Instant Runes: One of his powers. He can channel two of the major Nordic Runes.
  • Immortality: Is said to be immortal.
    • Revealed in episode 8 to actually be a form of Nigh-Invulnerability and Made of Diamond which he attained when he bartered with a god (whom he thought to be Odin but was most likely Loki instead if the sealed vase is any indication).
  • Lack of Empathy: Lost his ability to empathize with others when he became immortal.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His actual power. Broken when Shaka finally takes off the gloves and uses his Tenbu Hōrin to break the spell.
  • Mercy Kill: Once his immortality backfires and he experiences every single wound he's sustained with his body over the years, Shaka promptly activates his Tenbu Hōrin and removes his sense of touch to spare him the pain.
  • Mystical White Hair
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: His name is from Balder, the son of Odin in Norse mythology.

     Utgardar of Garmr 
Voiced by: Kenji Nojima

  • Good All Along: Utgardar was aware of Loki's plot the whole time, thus he took his own life and turned into an Einherjar himself to conceal the Odin Robe inside his own body, which is found by Frodi when he defeated him.
  • Mysterious Past: No one knows a thing about him or where he came from.
  • Meaningful Name: Utgardar is most likely named after Utgarda-Loki, the ruler of the castle Útgarðr in Jötunheimr in the mythology.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Odin. Even when he was resurrected as one of the Einherjar, he remains loyal to Odin by hiding the aforementioned god's God Robe from the Big Bad of the series and allowing Aiolia to use it later on.
