God of War: Ragnarok – Who do you think the major characters will be in the God of War: Ragnarok series? Let’s see the following discussion.
God of War: God of War fans today, Ragnarok is the most awaited series. The PlayStation Showcase event, which took place last September 2021, showed the first trailer of God of War: Ragnarok. The trailer shows Kratos and his son Atreus appearing again for the game’s sequel, several other characters from the previous game, and another Norse mythological god of war character.
In God of War, Ragnarok will focus more on Atreus’ worries about Fimbulwinter leading to the foretold Ragnarok. Even so, Atreus wants to explore the world and learn more about who he really is and also about Loki.
So, before knowing further, let’s first learn about the major characters who can surprisingly appear in the God of War: Ragnarok series through the following list.
1. Fenrir God of War: Ragnarok
In Norse mythology, Loki uses his shapeshifting ability to create giant creatures such as Jörmungandr the World Serpent, Sleipnir, which is Odin’s eight-legged horse Fenrir, a giant wolf who in the story will eat Odin when the events of Ragnarok occur. If Kratos and Atreus are going to kill all the Nordic gods in God of War: Ragnarok, then it’s likely that they will try to find Fenrir’s whereabouts to help win the battle.
2. Vidar God of War: Ragnarok
Vidar is the god of vengeance in Norse mythology. After being eaten by Fenrir, he is destined to avenge his father, Odin. However, it is not clear whether this mythical event of Ragnarok will also be implemented in God of War: Ragnarok.
Even so, if Kratos and Atreus manage to kill Odin, then the possibility of the appearance of Vidar’s character will be huge. In Norse mythology, Vidar is one of the gods who survived Ragnarok. So there is a possibility that he will take revenge on Kratos and Atreus, who killed his father.
3. Hel God of War: Ragnarok
In Norse mythology, Loki and Angrboda are told to have three children, including; Jormungandr, Fenrir, and Hel. Hel is said as the ruler of Helheim, a world for all the dead. Hel bears a resemblance to the god of Greek mythology, Hades.
The figure of Hel himself has not been mentioned in the previous God of War series, but if the existence of Helheim in God of War: Ragnarok happened, then there should be a Hel figure who Odin ordered to rule the area.
It is said that Hel also had an essential role in reviving Baldur after being killed by Loki. However, it is still a mystery whether Santa Monica Studios will adapt the God of War: Ragnarok series to resurrect Baldur after being killed by Kratos and Atreus in the previous God of War series or not.
4. Surtr God of War: Ragnarok
Surtr is a legendary creature in Norse mythology. The depiction of Surtr may be similar to the figure of Surtur in Thor: Ragnarok in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). He is told as a giant-sized creature with a weapon called the Flaming Sword that has fire.
With this power, Surtr would easily burn anything in front of him. In God of War: Ragnarok, the new Surtr figure is only depicted through ancient relics found by Kratos and Atreus. Well, of course, it is exciting that Kratos can meet and face the legendary creature of Norse mythology in the sequel to God of War: Ragnarok later.
5. Heimdall God of War: Ragnarok
If you’ve followed all the MCU Thor films, you’ll know the gatekeeper character Heimdall. The god who can see, hear, and guard the entire universe of Asgard holds a sword that is usually used to open a portal home for Thor.
The weapon itself is named Hofund. This sword is Asgard’s last hope weapon when Thor is banished to a planet in the middle of nowhere, and Hela suddenly attacks Asgard. Maybe not the best choice, but Heimdall certainly might be able to show up to take on Kratos before meeting its leader, Odin in God of War: Ragnarok.
6. Hraesvelgr God of War: Ragnarok
Hraesvelg is a Jotunn (giant frost) with an eagle’s shape. It is also known as a scavenger monster. This monster first appeared when Kratos went to Helheim to take the heart from the Bridge Keeper to treat Atreus. Many are curious that Hraesvelg could reappear in the sequel to God of War: Ragnarok and face Kratos.
7. Sif God of War: Ragnarok
Sif is a female knight character from Norse mythology. Since childhood, she is told as the younger sister of Heimdall and Thor’s friend. In God of War, Sif is said to have died, become the wife of Thor, and had several children.
Initially, Sif had golden hair, but Loki cut his hair, so he replaced his black hair, which he got from the dwarves. Sif had indeed been proficient in using the sword since childhood. Because of that, she was asked to be the best female warrior in Norse mythology. Of course, it is exciting to see Sif’s appearance in God of War: Ragnarok before Kratos faces Thor.
8. Ullr God of War: Ragnarok
Ullr is one of the gods in Norse mythology who has expertise in archery and hunting. He is also said to be the son of Thor and Sif and the brother of Magni and Modi. The figure of Ullr was told by Faye to Atreus when he was lost in the forest.
Faye imagined Kratos and Atreus looking like Tyr and Ullr. Having the same skills as Atreus, of course, the appearance of Ullr can be a surprise in the God of War Ragnarok series.
9. Skoll and Hati God of War: Ragnarok
In Norse mythology, Skoll and Hati are the sons of Fenrir and the grandsons of Loki. Both are depicted as the figure of the sun and moon and have their personification. The appearance of these two wolves also marks the start of the battle of Ragnarok.
Skoll and Hati are mentioned in God of War, so their existence is very clear in the universe where Kratos lives. So it is not surprising that it is very likely that these two characters could appear in the God of War: Ragnarok series.
10. Athena God of War: Ragnarok
Lastly, Athena is the Goddess of Wisdom from the God of War series, who mostly appears as an ally of Kratos. He also had time to meet again with Athena in God of War 2018, even briefly.
Through this brief meeting, Athena reminded Kratos again that he had fully become a father and had to get rid of his monster nature. But Kratos refused to listen and continued to act as he pleased.
This is, of course, the last warning given by Athena, and Athena may reappear to prevent the chaos that Kratos did in God of War: Ragnarok.
