- Norse Mythology
Those who know about Norse Mythology will be happy to see Jörmungandr make this list. Of course, those who play the God of War video games will most certainly be a fan. This terrifying sea creature from mythology appears like a snake mixed with some type of dragon. The God of War games revolve around the Greek/Roman Gods in Mythology, so connecting Norse Mythology to things made sense. The versions you might read about differ depending on where it’s used.
Of course, Jörmungandr also appears in Marvel Comic books or films involving Thor, due to his connection to Norse mythology. The Jörmungandr (also known as the Midgard Serpent) is so long that he can wrap all the way around Earth or “Midgard.” He keeps his tail in his mouth, almost as a protecting shield. As the offspring of Loki and Andrboda, once the serpent releases its tail, “Ragnorok” begins. In Mythology, Thor battles and slays the serpent but dies in the process.
