Mythology & Fiction Explained
it's been a while since we covered some Norse Mythology and most of my videos on the topic feel kinda bad compared to the new videos so here you go.
The Senate
Anyone here after playing the new god of war

"This one time, Loki turned himself into a snake, and he knows I LOVE snakes, and so as I picked it up to admire it, he changed back and said 'SURPRISE! It's me!' and then stabbed me. We were 8 at the time." Watching that, I was laughing so hard, I think I was the only one who got the joke...

I want to hear this in mimir's voice.
Michael Grant
Anyone else here from God of war?

After hearing this video. I feel really bad for Jormungand... seriously because it seems like he was used like a tool or been looked at with disdain. Odin tosses him into the ocean hoping he dies from the impact... Jormungand survives. The Giant King, or Loki in disguise, uses Jormungand to trick Thor... Jormungand gains an enemy. Thor during his tasks, pulls Jormungard out of the ocean... Jormungand gets his rest disturbed because of a cock fight between other gods. Thor tries fishing Jormungand out of the ocean for revenge, Jormungand only saw a tasty treat on the hook... Jormungand had his time wasted because he only wanted the free munchies. At Ragnarok. Thor kills Jormungand in their 'final' battle and Thor dies to the poison... yet all this time Jormungand was wanting to be left alone. Jeez Thor shouldn't you have been angry at Loki all this time? Maybe Odin for tossing said snake into the ocean?

Colin Preston
Will you do Chinese, Hindu, Celtic, and Aztec as well?
The King
I do like that snake. He kills Thor, and is terrifyingly large.
Cain Hrothvitnirson
Jormangandr literally means serpant monster. Not great beast. Jorm (wyrm) means serpant or dragon. Gand (gandr subjective) means monster. Another name for Fenrir is Vanagandr, monster of the river Van.
Commissar Purity
The son of Atreus... AKA the boi of boi No really... The bad guy over here is thor, jormungand was just minding his own business...
dHb
What if jormungand is the equator 🤔🤔🤔
TheBlues32
Loki wasn't the giant. Loki was WITH Thor at the time. He too had a task to complete and he too failed. I think I it was an eating contest. I don't think Thor was bitten. The Midgard Serpent spewed a toxic cloud from its mouth. On the day of Ragnarok, it would unleash its breath into the air like thick fog or clouds. Thor slew Jormungand, turned, took nine steps, and fell over dead, overwhelmed by its very breath.
Ilisei Andrei
anyone from smite?
Bernard Bonsu
Wait till Kratos and Atreus find Jormungand
ĀZĀ ZÆL
Here before God of War comes out lmao
Jacob Marsh
Jormungandr meaning, as you said, "great beast/monster" is the nickname of the serpent, the actual name of the wyrm is Miðgarðsormr meaning "Mitgard wyrm/serpent". So from my knowledge it's just the other way around. Great job though I don't mean disrespect 👍👍👍
bench joseph
if jormungand kill thor, what then? can the avengers win the battle?
Andrew Aydie
Now we know a bit of what will happen in GoW5
Tech
We got people from god of war and smite. For honor anyone?
Kaiju Fox
Mimir has something to say to you if you came here from God of War(like me) Mimir: YOU’RE ALL CRACKED!!!!
guy with really bad channel name
I could be wrong but wasnt it Thor, Loki and a normal human that went into the giant's castle story? Loki was also tricked by illusions so how could he have been the giant king
RSV 1
He cannot be loki because before Thor, even Loki and Thor's slave were also tricked by the King

This was bigger than Pythons and Anaconda. To be honest I liked the story of Thor and world serpent in god of war and since I was born there (Sweden) this is why I love Norse mythology. Also I would like to see this serpent in assassin’s Creed future series. If not in main story, I would like to get a boss fight of him as a part of DLC. Same in god of war 5 I know Atreus said that he is friendly but this if we get a fight with him I believe that this will be a good development for god of war story.
Jormy Gormy
AND NOW HE'S IN SMITE!!

Why are Loki's kids so powerful?
Daimon X
Magnificent Beast. Jormungand eats his own tail just like Ouroboros
Basil
Imagine having an army of old age women!
John Merced
Anyone hear after the Marvel Panel at San Diego Comic Con 2019? Turns out the 1st rough draft of Infinity War Thor was going to fight this Serpent to gain Storm Breaker! I hope they give us this fight for Thor Love & Thunder!
Info monger
Norse Mythology is my favorite of all mythology. Thanks for an awesome vid! I read a book on Norse Mythology, but it only gave mild information on the Gods and spoke of nothing else.
Heidi Black rose
Any plans to do Scottish myths and legends

In the Hebrew mythology, Jormungand is called Leviathan, the great beast of the sea, and with his mate, Akalthon, they rulled the sea, till Jehova cut them to peices and saved their undying flesh to the End of Time, when the righteous holy ones would feast on their flesh.
Sonny boy
something similar I encountered in J.R. Tolkien when king of wooden elves talks about great serpents of the north. of course it is "Hobit" movie Peace!
Simply Mari.
FOR HONORRRR
Dhansingh Dhansingh
Can you make a video on hindu mythalogy creature sheshnaga 🐍
Zed Not Zee
The version of the story i have goes as far as to refer to that Jotun King as "Utgard-Loki". Unclear as whether he's meant to be perceived as Loki himself, or simply as "the trickster of Utgard"
Chig Bungus
Anyone else come here after the new For Honor character was released

Too bad Jormungand wasn't in the MCU. I would've loved him ending Asgard instead of Surtur.
Leslie Middaugh
Thor Ragnarok was terribly inaccurate. Hella, Surtr, and Ragnarok? what were they thinking?

*Odin..! Your old friend has returned I bring the destruction of Asgard.*
Rupal Gupta
After playing God Of War like 5 times... I can't help but hate the Aesir... I know the game depicted Aesir in a bad way but still it did a pretty damn good job at doing that...
god of sin
"The old woman who bested thor was infact "Old Age". Did I hear wrong? Could someone please explain?
Somali Ghosh

Nick Tauro

duriel oakheart
This is amazing. I knew alot of greek mythologie. But i never actually thought of the norse mythology
Lewis Goldsberry
Ultraseven will defeat Jormaugand, that very interesting
KYCrusher1
It is sometimes debated if it he is large enough to surround Asgard or large enough the go around the world with his tail in his mouth
Victor Hughes

I want to know how common huge ass snakes are in ancient religions, and if they always represent the same thing. We have Jorungand here, the vengeful Apep, the complicated Quetzalcoatl...
Brett Kepler
You said Loki had 3 children. What about Sleipnir? The 8 legged horse that Loki is the mother of and gifts to odin.
Ed Kazarajy

Just wondering isn't Loke in chains for the rest of his life after he does something to Odin or Thor or someone

The gods aren't so good as everyone thinks. They are no different from those who do wrong. It seems they do even worse things then their enemies themselves. Like what they did to Vàli and Narvi. Not everything is bad although it may look it, and not everything is good as it may seem/claim.
