"I used to want to be a Valkyrie when I was younger, until I found out you were all women."
―Thor to Valkyrie[src]

Odin sent the Valkyrie to Hel in order to prevent Hela from escaping. The attack turned into a massacre, as Hela killed every Valkyrie with the exception of Brunnhilde. The trauma of the massacre led her to abandon Asgard and settle on Sakaar.


  • In the comics, the Valkyrie, or Valkyrior, led by Valkyrie, were killed in a war between Odin and Hela over rulership of Valhalla. Odin restored the Valkyrie to life after he regained possession of Valhalla, but these Valkyrie only have physical forms within Valhalla; outside it, they exist only in astral form.
  • The sacrifice of the Valkyrie was honoured with a monument in the Einherjar barracks within the City of Asgard
