Legendary Journeys

The Norse Gods were the collective gods worshiped by the people of the Norseland, they presided in the realms of the Norseland and places Asgard and Valhalla. Odin say, The giants of Frost, are the predecessors of the Norse gods, in the myth are offspring of the first giant  frost Ymir. Much like the Olympians, the Norse gods lived apart from their worshipers, unlike the Olympians, who generally treated humans as pawns or resources, most of the Norse gods loved their worshippers and took their duties seriously.

In Xenaverse[]

In the Xenaverse, they were worshiped as gods by the Vikings and ancient Germans. They were ruled over by Odin who sent his son, Thor, to protect mortals with his mystic hammer, Mjolnir.

Influenced by dreams, Hercules eventually traveled to the Norseland where he met Balder and learned that these gods were susceptible to death, just as mortals. This makes them different from the Olympians who can only be killed using rare and powerful weapons (HTLJ "Norse By Norsevest").

Hercules was skeptical to learn that the Norse gods genuinely cared about their worshipers and was even more surprised to learn that the Norse people loved them back, because he was used to the rule of the Olympians that generally cared sometimes for mortals, who in turn worshiped the Olympians out of fear or necessity.

As one Norse worshiper put it, both the pantheon and the mortals needed each other, because otherwise, they were left with the dark and the cold.

Odin set the Valkyries to be his heralds and carry the souls of dead warriors to Valhalla. They were a powerful force for good in the Norseland, until the coldhearted Xena arrived and wrecked havoc on Odin's heart and imprisoned Grinhilda.("The Rheingold") 

Powers and Abilities[]

The Norse Gods seem to possess many of the same superhuman Powers and Abilities of the Olympian gods, but at unknown levels. These powers include at least enchanted life-spans, regeneration, flight, the ability to become invisible to the human eye, telekinesis, superhuman strength, stamina, heightened senses and speed. The Norse gods have the mystical ability to teleport, but prefer traveling from Earth to Asgard via the Rainbow Bridge. They also also had the ability to change their physical appearance and to manipulate matter and the elements of nature on a level equal to the Olympian gods and to tap into mystical energies for various spells and others abilities.

However, they are not totally immortals and they are susceptible to death, maybe the reason is because the Norse gods, in part are giants, they are descendants, direct or indirect of the giants frosts in the myth.


The full limitations of the Norse Gods are unrevealed. In Xena it is revealed that they have golden apples similar to ambrosia.
