Top 10 Viking Heroes and Villains

Vikings, amazing rulers from Norwegian mountains, were very misunderstood and wrongly portrayed. They were not the blood-thirsty people we believe them to be. They also have much culture and myths. there are important gods and goddesses, hero's and villains, who I will list here.
The Top Ten
1 Thor

Though not the most important god, Thor is the most famous, mainly through the Marvel character but in other ways too.

Because Thor is great, keep up the good work.

How can there be any debate about this?

2 Loki

Not only is he the god of mischief who caused the permanent death of Baldr, he's also the one who will bring about Ragnarok. I mean, even though Odin is the creator, he's no match for his half-god, half-giant blood brother!

Blood brother of Odin, trickster, and master of lying and betrayal.

3 Odin

Odin is one of Norse mythology's most significant characters. He fathered Thor and is the most powerful of the gods. Thor would be left helpless against him in battle. Odin's determination and perseverance were so great that he would not stop before achieving his dream of eternal wisdom. He did more than drink from the well of wisdom. He plucked his eye out to do so. He hung himself from a tree too and came back, so Odin's a ghost and a god! He will fight the most powerful of monsters at Ragnarok!

Where's the doubt? Odin is the creator of man and god, and along with Vili and Vé, one of the first gods.

4 Heimdallr

Virtues are good only to make us slaves unless we also have freedom.

Hail Heimdallr!

5 Beowulf

Beowulf has the strength to rip the arms off trolls, hold his breath for days, and kill many monsters such as seven sea monsters, Grendel, and his mother. Hearing some hero killed some monster's mother in cold blood doesn't sound heroic, and he killed a dragon too.

6 Freyjha
7 Tyr

The brave Viking god swordsman, Tyr is the bravest. He put his hand into a wolf's mouth to save the gods. His hand was bitten off, and he didn't scream.

8 Idun

Idun. Without her, the gods would be dead.

9 Ragnar Lodbrok
10 Surtur

When the world ends, Surtur will seize it in flames, and Ragnarok will be over.

The Contenders
11 Frigga

Otherwise known as "Frigg," "Frija," "Frea," or "Frige," though not to be confused with Freyja/Freya or her handmaiden Fulla. While Odin is known as the All-Father, she is referred to as the All-Mother, and is his wife. She weaves the clouds into existence and can see into the future. She is also the mother of Baldr and Hodr.

12 Fernyr

FENRIR. I wear a necklace with his head as a pendant. He showed that gods are not immortal but can be bitten - I mean beaten - lol. He pretty much is an atheist's dream. He's a giant wolf who, in my mind, was misunderstood. Instead of leaving him in Asgard, roaming around and binding him because of fear of Ragnarok, Odin should have raised him from when he was younger, since he had a love for wolves. No, he had to trick him and bind him, which would piss anyone off.

I also have a tattoo of his emblem (Cloud's emblem from Final Fantasy) on my chest. Maybe I'll get his name on my forearm written in Norse runes. I love this. He's a beast.

13 Freyr

Freyr, also pronounced as Grey, is the god of healing, abundance, wealth, etc. He is the most important Vanir god and can defeat Odin at any time and anywhere. He also has a sword that can fight by itself, so what more can you expect?

14 Sigurd

Defeated Odin. He was mortal and defeated the mightiest of the gods.

15 Baldur

Killed by Loki in his streak of insanity, Baldur is the god of beauty. Maybe he was beautiful back then, but I gotta say, I don't think he is at all.

16 Hel
17 Midgard Serpent
18 Bjorn Ironside
19 Ratatosk

Love him. Such a funny character.

20 Njord
21 Ymir

Father and the lord of the Frost Giants, also Loki's real father.

22 Frey

Though not as well-known as Odin, Thor, or Loki, Frey is the god of fertility, crops, peace, and prosperity. He also rules over Alfheim, the home of the light elves. He is the god of spring and summer and the twin brother of the goddess Freya, the goddess of love. Attached to his chariot is a golden boar. So really, Frey is kinda cool.

23 Grendel
24 Leif Erikson Leif Erikson or Leif Ericson was a Norse explorer from Iceland. He was the first known European to have set foot on continental North America, before Christopher Columbus.
25 Egill Skallagrímsson
