Thor in God of War Ragnarok – He shows up in the ending of God of War (2018), and comes back as the main antagonist of God of War: Ragnarök. Here is everything about him!

As we know, Thor is a God with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, and the protection of mankind.

He is a barrel-chested ugly man, carrying a menagerie of magical weapons, from a pair of magical gauntlets to a girdle of strength.

Thor will return, corroborating with Freya to seek vengeance against Kratos and Atreus for the death of Baldur and Thor’s sons.

APPEARANCE – THOR IN GOD OF WAR RAGNAROK​

Thor has blue eyes, red hair, and a thick beard. He is tall and muscular, roughly equal to Kratos in terms of body stature and height.

He puts on a black hooded cloak fastened with a yellow leather cord and armor. The latter consists of an embossed dark-colored chestguard and matching vambraces worn over a long-sleeved shirt.

He seems to have a cold-blooded and serious expression. According to Mimir, Thor also has various pieces of the stone giant Hrungnir embedded in his skull.

In God of War: Ragnarok that Thor’s appearance is similar to ending of God of War, but that he is burly and thick waisted; with a large, rather obese but still muscular and built figure.

Similar to Kratos, Thor bears a scar over his right eye. This scar could be the result of Hrungnir’s corpse falling on him after his murder at the hands of the God of Thunder.

PERSONALITY​

Thor is widely infamous for his cruelty, violent temper, brutality, and sadism. He is utterly ruthless, showing no mercy to his enemies, and his bloodlust was only something greater than Odin’s paranoia, and many consider him the worst of the Aesir gods.

Despite being half-giant himself, Thor took sadistic pleasure in torturing and killing any giant. His reputation was similar to Ares, who was considered the worst among the Olympian Gods.

He also cares for his worshipers, as when one of his faithful followers died he made time to visit the family, although even then he still could be enraged easily while drunk, and ended up taking advantage of his higher status.

He is utterly ruthless.
Also, Thor is very arrogant, typical for an Aesir, as he would go to great lengths to cement his reputation amongst the Nine Realms.

Thor’s cruel nature can come out even when he is trying to be friendly towards others. After a wayward spirits father had passed away, his mother built a statue of Thor to watch over his grave. Appearing to the family, Thor offered his condolences for their loss.


Although they were overjoyed at first with the Gods presence, Thor took advantage of their hospitality and quickly became drunk.

Despite his dark sides, Thor deeply cares and trusts his family. He is known for being very loyal to Odin and was close with Baldur, comforting him in his depression over being unable to feel and trusting him with his life, despite the latter’s insanity and disgust towards the former’s bloodlust.

POWERS AND ABILITIES – THOR IN GOD OF WAR RAGNAROK​

Thor is the second most powerful of the Aesir, surpassed only by his father. His power is great enough for having slaughtered almost all the Giants being recognized and feared by his brutality.

Thor is confident enough in his abilities.

SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH​

Thor is the strongest of the Aesir Gods, surpassing that of Baldur, Týr, Magni, Modi, and maybe even Odin himself in terms of brute force and physical strength. His strength is so great that he was able to single handedly slaughter the Giants to near extinction

Thor can hold the strength of rivaling Kratos’ as he came alone to challenge him and his son in their house.

SUPERHUMAN DURABILITY​

As the strongest of the Aesir Gods, Thor must have tremendous superhuman durability. He can endure attacks from the Giants without much damage, which was most likely crucial in his ability to massacre them.

However, he can be incapacitated, such as when the colossal body of Hrungnir fell on him he was unable to remove the corpse himself until his sons removed it for him. He’s also destined to die after his battle with Jormungandr, falling victim to the latter’s venom.

Weather Manipulation: As the God of Storms, Thor has the ability to summon harsh lightning storms at whim. He displayed this power when he caused a giant storm to occur to wake Kratos and Atreus up.

LIGHTNING MANIPULATION​

As the God of Thunder, Thor has absolute control over electricity and lightning, with it being an innate power inherited by his sons, although Thor’s electrokinetic powers must clearly far surpass theirs. During his attack on Kratos and Atreus, Thor was capable of causing bolts of lightning to constantly rain down on their house by simply willing it.

IMMORTALITY​

Thor is immortal and can’t be killed by anything not powerful enough.

MASTER COMBATANT​

Thor is the mightiest warrior in Asgard. As such, he is an extremely skillfull fighter with hundreds of years worth of training and experience. He single-handedly killed countless Giants on Midgard and many other powerful beings. Thor and Odin will defeat Surtr, the strongest Fire Giant, during Ragnarok. Thor’s martial prowess is so great, that Mimir is uncertain that Kratos can even defeat him in battle.

HAMMER MASTERY​

Mjölnir: Forged by Brok and Sindri, this special one-handed hammer is Thor’s weapon of choice when killing giants and other foes. When thrown, Mjölnir always hits its target and returns to Thor’s hand. The hammer can hit mountains in a single blow.

This mentioned in “superweapon” by Mimir and as such is one of the most powerful weapons in all of the Nine Realms. The only weapons capable of opposing its immense power are the Leviathan Axe, Surtr’s Sword, and possibly the Blades of Chaos.
