- Technically confirmed? She wasn't all that happy with the arrangement, but Jack forced the issue and she's effectively comatose for the duration of the fight. Thankfully when she's released after the fight, she shows no trauma other than being very angry.
- Jossed. During the climax of the battle, while Heracles has the upper hand for a moment, Jack manages to perform a sneak attack using his own blood as his weapon and manages to mortally wound his rival, winning the battle "justly" and with Heracles taking well his defeat. It however makes the gods want to win the tournament even more.
If they end up 6 to 6 by the 13th fight and if the last one somehow ends in a tie, the survivor gods and heroes would face each other in a battle royale.
They will probably ask for immortality in exchange for fighting against humanity
- Alternatively, Nostradamus will betray humanity simply so that One of his prophecies is Right.
- Interestingly, Nostradamus’ introduction has the prophet make a prophecy that the gods will win… However, he admits he just made that up to mess with Göll.
- Rasputin will survive every single trick and trap Loki throws at him and defeats Loki by slowly whittling him down.
- Because he seemed to be angry at the god & declared him an evil god with disdain in his look. Plus both look child like & appear affable in attitude.
- It makes sense for a human nicknamed the White Death and a dog breeder to fight a God of death who just so happens to have the head of a jackal. And their fight will happen in a frozen forest where Anubis must find Simo while Simo must stay away from Anubis, as one hit from Anubis would kill him.
- Aphrodite, enraged by Buddha’s betrayal, will join the fight and reveals a Amazonian Beauty form before she fights. For irony, she will fall hard for her opponent and surrender.
- Ares. Ares will join and will fight King Leonidas, a man who once worshipped Ares until Ares abandoned him at the end of his life. King Leonidas will get his revenge on Ares.
- Hades. Just so all three of the top Greek gods get a turn to fight.
- Confirmed to be Hades in chapter 54. Funnily enough, Ares tries to volunteer, but he's quickly turned down.
- Long ago, a Valkyrie fell in love with a mortal warrior. That Valkyrie was Brunhilde. That warrior was Sigurd. Due to a series of tragic events, Sigurd died, and when Brunhilde returned to the realm of the gods...she found that Sigurd had been sent to Niflhel for having a Valkyrie fall in love with him. Not only that, but Brunhilde discovered that the events leading up to Sigurd's death were orchestrated by the gods in order to 'teach her a lesson about siding with mortals'. And thus, she was filled with hate. Her initiation of Ragnarok wasn't just to save humanity; it was to get revenge. And based on the fact that she said she would also head to Niflhel...this is just her last action against the gods.
- Possibly jossed. At the end of Chapter 65, Buddha mentions that Siegfried (another common name for Sigurd) “will shake up Ragnarok,” implying that his soul still exists.
- By taking advantage of Jack the Ripper’s volund giving them divine weapons capable of hurting gods, humanity will be the ones exterminating the gods and not the other way around.
- It will be mad scientist VS mad scientist. One representing all of mankinds scientific accomplishments the other all the evil science is responsible for.
- Apparently confirmed in chapter 66. Tesla is gonna be humanity's fighter in the 8th fight, while Beelzebub tells Hermes to tell Zeus that he's going next for the gods in the same round.
- Either side only has to win 7 of the 13 battles. Given: It seems unlikely that humanity will be the losers in this tournament and it would be a waste if we didn't get to see all 13 battles. As of this prediction, five battles are done, and we're looking at a 2-3 record (of Ragnarok! Hey-o!) in the gods' favor.
Fight #6 is 1,000% going to go to humanity considering who their champion is, leaving a 3-3 tie, meaning fights 7-11 will also be split. My prediction is that the gods will win fights 7 and 8, followed by humanity taking fights 9, 10 and 11. Since Göll and Brunhilde will be the last two Valkyries to join the fight, in that order, Göll is 1,000,000% going to die in fight #12, stealing humanity's runaway winning streak and bringing it all down to the wire.
Since Odin is scheduled to fight at some point, and since he's a Top God, plus, you know, Ragnarok, he's 1,000,000,000% going to be the Final Boss, which means Loki will probably be the one to kill fighter #12 and Brunhilde.
- Not only that but it was the first volund. However Buddha was not the one who created the technique, instead it was Kannon who he made a pact with to create the staff.
- After Buddha's defection and everything that has happened with Bishamonten/Zerofuku/Hajun it will be decided that the battle doesn't count towards Ragnarok. This will keep the number of human fighters at 13 but result in two new fighters for the gods to be chosen.
- Jossed. Round 6's result counts and adds a point to humanity, tying the score to 3-3.
- It will be an ironic reversal that will re-equalize the number of contestants without having to add any new ones.
- Qin Shi Huang, after a tough fight, will ultimately defeat Hades and will attribute his victory to him being an emperor while Hades, despite having both the right and power to rule, gave the position of Top God to his youngest brother Zeus.
- As upsetting as Qin Shi Huang losing will be, it seems to make the most narrative sense. The Greek gods losing three times in a row (Poseidon, Heracles, and Hades) would make them seem like jokes and decrease their threatening presence in the narrative. Also, it seems probable that the final score would be close to increase tension (so seven to six) and since Buddha won the last round, it feels more likely that humanity won't win again.
- Realizing he needs the help of a swordsman who far surpasses him, Souji Okita will ask Sasaki Kojiro to train him until it’s his turn to fight.
Naturally there's an explanation to this. The war of Troy took place in a time when gods were more directly involved with mortal affairs... too directly, as it turned out. Several humans took exception to the meddling, and struck back against the gods, and proved their strength and might. And though they did not even possess Volunds at the time (this having happened before Buddha), the gods grew touch nervous of where this was going and where it might yet end up, and banded together to destroy the humans decisively. They went on to glass the realm and wipe their hands off it and forget that the entire thing ever happened.
All that's left to tell of the entire mess is a few scattered notes of mortal epic, distorted by the ages and by now reflecting very little of what actually took place that day. But, naturally, the whole thing will be brought up eventually anyway. Perhaps when Apollo or Leonidas will take the stage.
Heracles: Kyle Hebert
- Jossed: Heracles is voiced by George Newbern
Jack the Ripper: Kyle Hebert, Dan Woren
- Jossed: Jack the Ripper is voiced by Jeff Leach.
Buddha: Sean Chiplock
- Jossed: Buddha is voiced by Maaz Ali.
Qin Shi Huang: Johnny Yong Bosch
Hades: Ray Chase
Nikola Tesla: Alex Rochon
Beelzebub: Phillip Reich
- Like was the case with Zeus, he has far too much villainous narrative impact to die so early in the story. And the humanity won twice in a row and is currently in the lead, which can not be allowed to stand.
- Adding on to this, the battle will be the reverse of Jack vs Heracles, where Tesla loses but in the process saves Beelzebub from his inner demons.
