Films: Guten Ragnarok (2013)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Lake/Underground

Height/Weight: That of a bus.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: The Vikings came up with some very interesting stories, that much is known. However, they also had a very insane idea of how the world would end. But today, we know that the end times are (hopefully) not coming anytime soon. That doesn't mean aspects of the legend aren't true.

History: Long ago in the forests of the lost country of Finnmark, there were legends of Vikings encountering gigantic serpents, some of which inspired the stories of Ragnarok and the world-sized snake Jormungandr. Sure enough, these big reptiles still thrive near the lakes, and an archeologist and his team have stumbled upon its turf. Then one of them takes a rock...that's actually an egg. Now, Jormungandr won’t rest until her baby is returned or everyone here is dead.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Just before Jormungandr can kill the kids, the man who started this returns the baby to her. Without any fuss, Jormungandr takes her leave with child, and everyone swears to never approach this place again.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Jormungandr is nowhere near as big as she is in the myths, but she's big enough to devour humans whole. Her draconic aspects and her constantly being wreathed in shadow only make things worse. But if you adhere to her rather obvious demands, you stand a way better chance of survival. Because sometimes, you just look like a fool for carrying a little monster around the bigger one's area.

Trivia: -In Norse mythology, Jormungandr was one of the bastard children of Loki, and by far the largest of them all, hence the title that literally translates to "big monster". It was said that it was so big, it could wrap around the Earth more than once. It was also Thor's archenemy, and the two would clash frequently before Ragnarok, in which the serpent makes landfall, poisons half the world, and fights Thor one last time before being slain, though it does kill the God with its poison.

-Ragnarok, or "twilight of the Gods", is the part of Norse Mythology in which all the higher deities and monsters of the world wage war against one another. No one wins, the whole universe resets, and the remaining beings repopulate the Earth.

A celebration for Vikings: The Series goes horribly wrong.
Bring as many as you want. It won't deter the mighty one.
Turns out, the ancient legend was BATS!
This water park might need some work.

Quick! Use a toothbrush to make him self-conscious!
