4★ Gungnir : Arc Dragoon [ ]
She has an air of mystery about her, and possesses a wealth of knowledge. Her appearance is that of a sheltered noble girl. Her Killium comes from the divine spear wielded by Odin, the king of gods. Despite being the weapon of a god, she did not have sufficient power to defeat foes in single blows, and her memories of this have given her something of a complex about her strength. As a result, whenever her comrades who were also weapons of Odin are active in battle, or are friendly with her commander, she becomes very depressed and extremely self-depreciative.
5★ Gungnir : Ruler of Dragons [ ]
She has an air of mystery about her, and possesses a wealth of knowledge. Her appearance is that of a sheltered noble girl. Her Killium comes from the divine spear wielded by Odin, the king of gods. Perhaps because she was the weapon of a king, she is very dignified, and a little fussy about manners and appearance--she often scolds her commander for looking unkempt. For some reason she has a beast-like sense of smell, and always knows where her commander is. No matter how far away they are, she always instantly senses when the commander and Mjolnir are together, and suddenly becomes very depressed.

Norse Mythology for Smart People
Gungnir ( Old Norse Gungnir , “Swaying;”  pronounced “GUNG-neer”) is the name of the mighty spear that belongs to the god Odin .
In the recorded Norse myths , Gungnir is the weapon most consistently and powerfully associated with Odin.  Both poetry and visual art demonstrate that this connection is deep and long-standing. It goes back at least as far as the ninth century, when the poet Bragi Boddason referred to Odin as Gungnis váfaðr (“Gungnir’s shaker”).  Pre-Christian Scandinavian visual art often depicts Odin bearing a spear; in fact, the spear is one of his most typical iconographic attributes. Such depictions are found from Viking Age runestones all the way back to Bronze Age rock carvings of a spear god, who very well may be Odin (though due to the very early date and lack of other distinguishing features, it’s impossible to say for certain). 
As you’d expect for the weapon of a god, Gungnir is no ordinary spear. It was created by the dwarves , the most skilled smiths in the cosmos , as is related in the tale of how the gods’ greatest treasures were made . Gungnir is said to have runes carved on its point,  which presumably increase its aim and deadliness through magic . Archaeology confirms that the Norse and other Germanic peoples did in fact carve runes into some of their spears;  perhaps this was done in imitation of the mythical model of Gungnir.
Other aspects of Gungnir definitely did serve as mythical models for human actions. This is especially true with regard to the spear’s role in human sacrifices offered to Odin.
In the war between the two tribes of gods , Odin led the Aesir gods into battle against the Vanir . He began the battle by hurling his spear over the enemy host and crying, “ Óðinn á yðr alla! ” (“Odin owns all of you!”). The historical Norse repeated this paradigmatic gesture, giving the opposing army as a gift to Odin in hopes that the god would return the favor by granting them victory. 
Likewise, when Odin sacrificed himself to himself in order to discover the runes , he simultaneously stabbed himself with Gungnir and hanged himself. It’s fitting, therefore, that when the Norse sacrificed someone to Odin, whether a single individual or a large group of people, they typically did so by means of a spear, either by itself or in combination with hanging. 
In the Viking Age, Odin was the chief of the gods, a role which in earlier times he had shared with the god Tyr . Just as Tyr’s sword seems to have been a symbol of the power and authority of lordship (we can infer this from the number of Indo-European parallels), so Odin’s spear probably was as well.  Gungnir, the finest spear in the cosmos, would have served as a compelling image of the ferocious might, both magical and military, of the grim ruler of the gods.

History [ ]
Used by asgardian kings [ ].
Gungnir was a weapon historically associated with the king of Asgard , and was wielded by Odin , and his father Bor before him. In 2988 B.C. , Bor wielded Gungnir in Asgard's first war against the Dark Elves and their ruler Malekith , who attempted to revert the universe to its original state of darkness. 
In 965 A.D. , a war broke out between the Asgardians and the Frost Giants of Jotunheim . Led by their king Laufey , the Frost Giants attacked the planet Earth with the Casket of Ancient Winters , intending to turn it into a frozen wasteland, causing a new Ice Age. The Asgardian army fought against the Giants, and Odin personally fought and defeated Laufey with Gungnir, though the victory cost him his right eye. 
More than one thousand years later, Odin's son Thor and his friends Loki , Sif , Fandral , Hogun , and Volstagg traveled to Jotunheim to find those responsible for the unsuccessful theft attempt in Odin's Vault . The Asgardian adventurers would have died at the hands of the angry Frost Giants if it were not for the timely arrival of Odin who used Gungnir to transport them back to Asgard. 
Odin uses Gungnir to send Thor to Earth
A few days later, when Odin fell into Odinsleep , Loki took Gungnir as the new king of Asgard. When Loki helped the Frost Giants to sneak into Asgard, he used Gungnir to kill Laufey to make himself a hero in the eyes of Frigga , Odin's wife and his adoptive mother. But when Thor returned from Earth , they had a fight in which Thor defeated Loki, and Gungnir was returned to Odin. 
Soon, a new threat arose. With the Bifrost Bridge destroyed, the Asgardians could not maintain peace in the universe. When Odin and Thor discovered that Loki was attacking Earth, Odin used Gungnir to channel all the dark energies to send Thor to Earth to stop and bring Loki back.  Although Odin was in possession of the spear for most of the Dark Elves ' 2013 invasion , even using it against them during the Sacking of Asgard , Loki evidently took up both it and the throne of Asgard by the invasion's conclusion. 
Used by Thor [ ]
Thor striking Hela with Gungnir
When Hela came to take the throne of Asgard, Thor had taken the spear, and briefly used it in a duel before dropping it. As he seems to have left it after awakening his true power, and the whole of Asgard was subsequently destroyed by Surtur in Ragnarök , Gungnir seems to have been destroyed.

Capabilities [ ]
As the ruler of Asgard 's main armament, Gungnir is as powerful and enduring a weapon as it is a symbol of power and authority. A powerful, mystical spear, it is forged from strong Asgardian metal and carries many enchantments that magnify its power.
Gungnir is imbued with a powerful form of energy, similar to that of the Destroyer automaton. Through this, Gungnir's wielders are able to project powerful, potentially continuous, energy blasts. Bor, Odin, and Loki have been shown capable of firing energy blasts of consistent power, capable of taking out several enemies at once. The spear was powerful enough to knock Thor through the wall of an Asgardian castle. Gungnir has also been shown to channel other forms of energy, with Odin using it to channel the dark energies needed to send Thor to Earth . It was also shown capable of opening and closing the Bifrost Bridge in place of Heimdall's sword during Thor's banishment. After Frigga 's death, she and the other fallen Asgardian warriors were given a grand funeral ceremony after which Odin slammed Gungnir on the ground, transforming the bodies of the dead into a flittering mist that drifted into the night sky.
Among its several enchantments, Gungnir has been shown to be directly tied to the Asgardian weapon, the Destroyer. Enchanted to recognize the holder of the spear as the ruler of Asgard as its master, whoever holds Gungnir is able to order the Destroyer, over any distance, to do their bidding, which it will unquestioningly fulfill no matter what the task. In addition, the wielder can pilot the Destroyer from across the cosmos and perceive through its senses.
- In the comics, Gungnir translates into "The Spear of the Heavens".
- The lance is also known to possess five main characteristics, one of them as being able to pierce whatever it is thrown at.
- The lance is represented by the Gar rune.

This article contains lore based on real-life sources from Norse Mythology as introduced from the God of War Norse Era.
Gungnir , also known as the Spear of Heaven , is introduced in God of War: Ragnarök as Odin 's signature weapon. Forged by the Master Craftsman and Alchemist Ivaldi , Gungnir was notably the weapon that ended the life of the Giant Ymir , thus ensuring the rise of Odin as the All-Father. Long before the events of the series, the King of the Aesir then notoriously used the Spear of Heaven to stab himself in his mad quest for knowledge.
Elegant and refined, the weapon was a masterpiece of Dwarven craftsmanship. Unbeknownst to his surrounding, Odin used his unmatched mastery of the Bifröst to conceal his weapon, which secretly imbued a variety of battle enchantments with every shape to further enhance its owner's magical abilities. Even though he was a skilled and deadly combatant, Odin rarely used his legendary spear after he became King of the Aesir, since his position as the ruler of the Nine Realms made battles with potential foes few and far between.
Unbeknownst to his surrounding, Odin systematically kept his legendary weapon with him and merely used it as a walking stick when he was wandering around. But when the All-Father absolutely needed to defend himself, he instantly turned his unassuming and benign staff into a deadly spear, summoned from the Bifröst in a flash. During Ragnarök , Odin most notably caught Thor off-guard by stabbing the latter through his chest, before engaging in battle Kratos , Atreus and Freya with his magical spear. Following the death of his owner, Gungnir is ultimately destroyed along with Asgard .

Gungnir, the finest spear in the cosmos, would have served as a compelling image of the ferocious might, both magical and military, of the grim ruler of the gods.
In the God of War Series [ ]
Backstory [ ].
Gungnir was forged by the dwarf Ivaldi, which is considered his masterwork. When given to Odin, the spear became infamous across the Nine Realms long before the events of the series, at the time Odin was waging wars and consolidating his power. His most incredible feat involving Gungnir would certainly be the slaying of the legendary primordial Giant Ymir , father of the Jötnar (though the detailed account of this fight remains unknown). The Spear became the symbol of Odin's new power, and was used once more by the self-proclaimed All-Father when he fought during the everlasting Aesir-Vanir War , hurling his spear over the Vanir host. When peace was at last secured in the form of a marriage between Odin and Freya , the King of the Aesir would mostly be seen using Gungnir as a walking stick.
God of War (2018) [ ]
As in Norse mythology, Gungnir is the personal weapon of Odin . Though the weapon itself doesn't appear in game, several triptychs in several Jötnar shrines depicts the All-Father holding Gungnir, notably the moment where he slayed his great-grandfather Ymir with his brothers Vili and Vé . Mimir also mentioned Gungnir as a 'spear' on one of his stories, notably the one that tells how the Odin claimed the title of the "Lord of the Hanged".
God of War Ragnarök [ ]
The Spear of Heaven is depicted first in Svartalfheim , at the hands of a giant statue representing the All-Father himself. Gungnir is then seen for the very first time in Asgard during the seventh chapter of the game, when Odin summons it out of nowhere in company of Atreus during their tour. There is a painting in Odin's study room that shows him holding Gungnir on its staff form while sitting on his throne, accompanied with Huginn & Muninn and Geri & Freki . For the occasion, the spear is shown to have the ability to appear in Odin's hand on command, similar to the Draupnir Spear (however, where Kratos uses Draupnir to summon his weapon, the All-Father summons his from the Bifröst , without the help of a device). It can also shrink and grow in length in an instant, going from a small scepter-like rod to a full walking stick taller than Odin himself. One can notice that the All-Father magically retracts his weapon and makes it disappear in the same way he summoned it.
Gungnir appears for the last time in the chapter The Realms at War , moments before the final showdown. As Thor dares to stand up to his father and refuses to kill Kratos, an enraged Odin summons Gungnir and reveals its true nature when its blade pierces the God of Thunder through his chest, effectively killing him. The King of the Aesir then uses his legendary spear to duel the Ghost of Sparta and his son in front of the Great Lodge , displaying for the occasion an impressive amount of dark magic. Being a legendary weapon, Gungnir is unsurprisingly extremely durable and able to deflect a blow by the Leviathan Axe without any issue, which allows Odin to briefly overpower his opponents. Moments later, the All-Father attaches the noose he used to hang himself to the spear, giving it the ability to extend its blade in a whip-like fashion. When Kratos managed to engage the All-Father in close combat, the latter used Gungnir to successfully stab the Spartan. This caused Kratos to quickly disengage himself, likely saving his life in the process. At the end of the fight, he is disarmed of the spear, and it is not seen again, presumably having been destroyed along with Asgard.
Description [ ]
In its original form, Gungnir appears as a long spear - roughly 2 meters long - and a closer look make us think that the body as well as the blade itself are seemingly made of ivory, or in any case of a material that looks like it - like bone. This would not be surprising, as both materials are not only extremely durable but also sometimes associated with death and sacrifices. Such concept would perfectly fit Odin's very personality - the All-Father once sacrificed himself by using the spear - as much as the deadly nature of Gungnir itself, a fact further emphasized by the incredible amount of dark magic within the Spear of Heaven. On this regard, Gungnir is unlike any other weapon in the series, who are usually made of more conventional materials. First, because Odin magically bound Gungnir to his will: the spear is the very reflection of the All-Father's mood, and as such, it is assumed that only he can use it. Odin's powers tidely linked to the Bifröst (and by extension, Asgard ) made it an obvious choice to fuel Gungnir with this primordial element. This was not only in phase with the All-Father's fighting style - which favors the use of magic, it also allowed him to channel his powers into the spear itself and thus, increase its powers with formidable efficiency.
The body of the spear itself is decorated with sumptuous patterns representing Norse runes. These are not only decorative, they in reality imbue a wide variety of battle enchantments with every shape. Gungnir is also embellished with an excessive amount of rope going through the body of the spear, which is a major component in Odin's magic: in battle, the rope is glowing with an intense purple aura. Such colour is obviously associated with Bifröst , and the spearhead itself emits an impressive aura of dark magic. It is worth noticing that purple is also traditionally associated with magic and knowledge. By all regards, Gungnir should be considered as the antithesis of the Draupnir Spear , which has been forged with completely different materials and for a completely different purpose. Where Draupnir is a shining gold spear, symbol of justice and nobility, Gungnir is a spear of a cadaverous shade, symbol of witchcraft and treachery.
In its staff form, it basically look the same as the original but without the spear's blade. The head of the staff has a quite simple yet elegant shape. A closer look can allow us to see there is a split on the top of the spear's head, which is where Odin conceal the spear's blade. This seems to be a reflection to its owner - both mostly appear as a simple and even harmless figure but hides its true nature that unbeknownst to others. Odin usually uses Gungnir on this form as a walking stick that he can magically retract and detract. The staff also has a 'smaller' form that looks like a wand. The most based shape for the Spear of Heaven.
Last but not least, on its whip form. Apparently, this a form that Gungnir has never taken. The spear's blade is used as the tip of the whip's rope. The rope itself was a noose that Odin used to hang himself. This rope often appears channeled with Bifröst energy to extend its length or to cause shockwaves that can be seen during the final battle.
Gameplay [ ]
Powers and spells [ ].
- Glettings bára : First, the blade emerges in a flash from the spear, then Odin channels the Bifröst power through Gungnir, brandishes it and brutally sticks the glowing blade in the ground to create a deadly wave of dark magic on several meters, aimed at Kratos. Not only that, the Bifröst wave covers a radius of 45 degrees and is very quickly executed, which leaves little to no time to avoid if Kratos is too close of Odin. If Kratos is hit, he will be covered in Bifröst for a few moments, leaving him vulnerable to further attacks. However, this attack can be interrupted if Kratos hits Odin right before he performs it.
- Leiptra : Odin summons the energy of Bifröst from his hand and uses Gungnir to enhance it, duplicating the spell into three balls of Bifröst energy aimed at Kratos. This spell allows Odin to attack Kratos from a much longer distance, but also leaves the Spartan more time to actually avoid it. Like previously, this attack can also be interrupted if Odin is hit right before the latter casts his spell. Alternatively, Kratos can parry this attack and deflect it to Odin.
- Íssprengja : Before performing this attack, Odin always moves away from Kratos and levitates in the air. Then, as an intense purple aura emanates from him, he brandishes Gungnir to the sky and summons a powerful ice jet from his spear. Odin then shoots down the jet towards Kratos, and can performs it up to three times in a row - depending on the combat phase. If the ice jet successfully hits the Spartan, the latter will find himself frozen and will suffer from permanent frost damage for a few moments. Not only that, Kratos' movements will also be greatly slowed down, making him very vulnerable to further attacks. This spell is extremely difficult to interrupt as Odin performs it far away from the player while in the air. An excellent timing while rolling to the side is the only way to avoid being hit.
- Brjóta : This special spell starts to truly show the terrifying power of Gungnir. When Odin loses 30% of his health during the first phase, he swiftly moves to the centre of the arena, then sticks Gungnir in the ground to literally tear the battlefield apart into three pieces. The resulting shockwave brutally throws Kratos and Atreus in the air like meaningless toys. However, since this move is scripted and cannot be interrupted, the player doesn't lose health during the sequence.
- Halda : Like the previous spell, this one is scripted and cannot be interrupted, nor will it harm the player. Once Odin loses 90% of his health during the first phase, he quickly reacts by performing a nice jump while channeling his powers into Gungnir, a fact evidenced by the tattoos on his forearms glowing from an intense purple light. He then smashes the weapon's blade into the ground, pouring a good amount of dark magic all over the arena. This special spell is a true piece of treachery as it successfully allows Odin to overpower his opponents, keeping both Kratos and Atreus in place and preventing them from moving.
Melee Attacks [ ]
- Spear charge : Odin will charge toward you with an unblockable attack. Gungnir will glow in purple with Bifröst enchantment before Odin attempts to stab you with the spear. Given the type of charge, you'll want to dodge sidewards to avoid damage or parry the attack. Should Kratos fail to do either of both actions so, he'll be sent flying backward into the rocks surrounding the battle arena and covered in Bifröst.
- Spear strike : This movement only performed if Kratos is in close range with Odin. Lunging toward you with his spear, Odin will perform several strike attacks upon Kratos. This attack consist of two or three regular strikes and a block break strike. Fortunately, this attack can be parried so you might want to take an advantage from it.
- Spear charge 2.0 : Rising into the air, surrounded by a purple glow of Bifröst enchantment, Odin will quickly charge toward you. This attack is executed incredibly fast, so as soon as you see him rising in the air, get ready to take off charging, you'll want to dodge it. Because unlike the previous ones, this attack is unblockable.
- Whip swings : Odin will swing Gungnir's whip form. The swing can generate a unblockable aerial-shockwave. The shockwave can damage and deal blindness to Kratos should he not dodge it on time.
- Explosive Bifröst swing : Twirling Gungnir on its whip form, a large red circle pattern will appear on the ground around him. Seconds later, Odin will crack Gungnir to create a huge Bifröst explosion on this circle. Kratos can dodge this attack by avoiding being inside the circle pattern. If you're really quick, you'll have the opportunity to attack him to interrupt the attack.
- Whip smash : Odin will smash the ground with Gungnir on its whip form. Each strike creates a large Bifröst shockwave on the ground. This movement can be performed up to three strikes in a row by him.
Other powers [ ]
- Terrain shockwave : He performs this soon after he executed Bjòrta that caused the battlefield teared into three parts. Odin slams his spear into the ground, where you'll slowly begin to notice that the ground surrounding you will turn into Bifröst. He can target up to two off the teared battlefields. You'll want to book it out of there by jumping across to a different platform, or take a higher risk by interrupt him. Should Kratos remain on the Bifröst ground, he'll be pushed away and suffer a large chunk of damage.
- Shapeshifting : Odin can shapeshift Gungnir into any form he desires. He could alter its length from a short wand into a long staff that stands taller than him. He could also morphed it into a spear, a staff, and even a whip with Gungnir's spearhead as its tip.
- Later in the final design of Odin's concept art shows the All-Father holding Gungnir on its staff form but it has metallic-like appearance and much smaller. Furthermore, the staff's decoration is different and seems to be carved.
- The blade is way too long and wide to normally fit within the shaft, even with the unusually wide hilt. It can be assumed that the use of magic is the only way for Odin to conceal the spearhead. Speaking of which, a closer view to the top of the walking stick allow us to notice a split, a warning sign about its true nature. Strangely, there is absolutely no split on the front of the head, which is odd considering that the spearhead also emerges from this side.
- While mythology describes Gungnir as a throwing spear, said to be so balanced it's able to always hit its target, Odin at no point uses it as a throwing spear in the game. It is very likely that the full extend of Gungnir's power isn't actually shown during the final battle, probably because it would prove too frustrating for the player to be systematically hit by Odin's spear without any means to prevent this. That is probably what drove the developers to design Gungnir in a more balanced and realistic way, like they did with Mjölnir .
- Gungnir is depicted for the first time in God of War (2018) in a few Jötnar shrines , and most notably one where Odin is using it to kill Ymir . However, the spear as such never appears since the All-Father himself isn't present in game. Instead, the Spear of Heaven makes its first appearance in God of War: Ragnarök during the seventh chapter , where Odin use it as a benign walking stick.
- Interestingly, at no point Odin uses Gungnir when disguised as Týr , even when he is attacked. While he accompanies Kratos , Atreus and Mimir in Alfheim , Odin is at some point forced to defend himself against the Light Elves , using conventional means. This could be explained by the fact that the All-Father was never in danger due to his godly status, but also because summoning Gungnir would have immediately exposed him.
- Ironically, "Tyr" Responds why would he need a "walking stick" (Referring to the spear that Atreus want to give) for self defense. Later, it shows that Odin effectively uses Gungnir as a walking stick in Asgard .
- According to the mythology, Gungnir said to be carved with runes on its spearhead to empower the accuracy and power of the spear.
- The full spear appears to be about 6.56ft (2 meters long), since it is much taller than Odin and roughly the size of Kratos .
- The body of the spear, as well as its blade, seem to be made of ivory, although it produces a distinctive metallic sound every time Odin summons or retracts Gungnir.
- The top of the spear is seemingly embellished with white cords that cover part of the handle and even go through it. In reality, these cords are imbued with Bifröst enchantments since they are seen glowing with an intense purple glow in battle.
- Gungnir's use revolves around the utilization of magic, much of which executed by attacking foes from afar with or affecting the space in which combat occur. In most of its appearance, it's disguised as a dignified, yet quite modest walking stick. This reflects Odin, in which he is a proficient magic user who prefer less direct means to deal with opposition, often causing more destruction than he ever cared for, and at most times, put on the guise of an approachable and harmless man, but is not beyond making his own hands bloody when cornered.
- Draupnir on the other hand appears as a straight-up weapon with stern design, it could always generate a new copy of itself, and tough magical and imbued with the power of Wind, heavily relies on the conventional physical implementation of a spear as a physical weapon. This reflects Kratos more upfront and martial qualities, the ever-copious nature of the Spear itself matches his persistent nature of coming back several times despite his prior failures, defeats and even deaths.
- All in all, Gungnir can be considered as the "evil" equivalent of the Draupnir Spear. Indeed, the All-Father used his weapon to kill and curse many, even going as far as stabbing himself and impregnating the spear with his dark essence. On the contrary, Kratos created his spear for the sole purpose of protecting his son from Heimdall . When one thinks about it, absolutely everything opposes the two spears.
- Gungnir material - reminiscent of bone - as well as its ivory, cadaverous color are strangely reminiscent of Tom Riddle's wand made of yew. The yew notably symbolises death and resurrection, two concepts that obsessed both Odin and Tom Riddle and make their respective weapons even more similar.
- The spear systematically appears out of nowhere in Odin's hands when it is summoned, exactly like when the All-Father summons Huginn and Muninn . This implies that Gungnir is somehow a part of Odin himself, magically bound to his body.
- The same can be said when Odin uses his spear to perform dark magic: since the All-Father has been seen making invocations without his weapon, we can safely assume that Gungnir is only a means to enhance his spells. This is further corroborated by the fact that Odin mostly uses Gungnir to cast spells upon Kratos, though he does not hesitate to engage the Spartan in melee if necessary.
- One can notice that Odin always uses the Bifröst, evidenced by its glowing purple aura, to do any of his actions during the battle. So we can assume that the All-Father also uses the Bifröst with the help of Gungnir to focus and enhance his movements.
- Interestingly, there is not a single trace of blood on the weapon when Odin uses it to kill Thor. Whether this is an oversight or a deliberate choice from the developers is unknown; as a comparison, when Kratos landed the hit that became a lasting wound on Thor's abdomen, the God of Thunder clearly bleeds.
- The spearhead almost systematically retracts itself after an attack, before Odin summons it soon after. This is odd considering that his wielder is in the middle of a fight and seemingly gets rid of the blade.
- The noose was connected to Odin's very being; it is the very same one he used in the infamous ordeal that won him the title "Lord of the Hanged". This could imply that Gungnir is similarly connected to the All-Father.
- On some occasions during the final battle, Gungnir can been seen standing on its own without Odin holding it. This further supports the idea that the Spear of Heaven is bound to the All-Father.
- Strangely, Kratos doesn't seem very much wounded when Odin managed to stab him with Gungnir during the final fight, especially considering that the Spear of Heaven was powerful enough to kill the Spartan. Whether it is a point neglected by the developers or a deliberate choice remains unknown.
- Since Gungnir isn't seen anymore after Odin is defeated, it is implied that the Spear has been destroyed along with Asgard by Ragnarök .
- In its direct appearance, Gungnir stands taller than Odin himself, the Codex and Odin's statue on Svartalfheim however depict the spear, in its staff form, to be shorter than him.

Gungnir: Odin’s Mighty Spear
Of all the weapons in Norse mythology, the weapon of the god Odin (Óðinn) is considered one of the most powerful. Where Gungnir ranks compared to other weapons is hotly debated, especially when compared to Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir .
Regardless of the criteria, Gungnir consistently ranks in the top 5 most powerful weapons in Norse mythology.
Perhaps more interesting than its powers are the origins of Gungnir. Forged by skilled dwarves and gifted to Odin by Loki , Gungnir is a fantastic piece of weaponry with an exciting backstory.
Table of Contents
The making of Gungnir
Gungnir was forged from Uru metals, found exclusively in Asgard’s realm. Gungnir was created by dwarves known as the Sons of Ivaldi.
The skilled dwarf blacksmith Dvalin oversaw the creation of Gungnir, which was to be a gift for the Norse god Odin.
In Old Norse, Gungnir means to tremble or to sway. While it is sometimes called “the spear of heaven,” Gungnir is also called “the swaying one.” This is because the very sight of this glorious and powerful spear causes enemies to sway, trembling with fear.
Gungnir was also an important part of Norse mythology. Odin threw the spear over the heads of the Vanir gods, which started the Æsir-Vanir war . Odin carried the spear with him everywhere.
In the end of days–called Ragnarök–Odin led the warriors of Valhalla into battle, confronting the great wolf Fenrir with Gungnir held firmly in his grasp.
Where did Odin get Gungnir?
Loki commissioned the making of Gungnir by the Sons of Ivaldi.
Loki presented Gungnir as a gift to the god Odin as reparation for cutting the goddess Sif’s golden hair without her permission.
The Sons of Ivaldi made three items at this time:
- Sif’s headdress made from golden wheat
- And Freyr’s mighty ship, Skidbladnir
The ever-cunning Loki challenged dwarves Sindri and Brokkr to create gifts of equal value to those from the sons of Ivaldi. In response to Loki’s goading, Sindri and Brokkr created their own gifts for the Norse gods:
- Freyr’s pig, Gullinbursti
- The soul ring, Draupnir
- Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir
Loki commissioned each of these 6 items to the gods to atone for cutting Sif’s hair.
When Loki returned to Asgard, he gave Draupnir and Gungnir to Odin. To Odin’s wife, Freyja , Loki gifted Gullinbursti and Skidbladnir. Loki gave Thor his hammer, and to Sif, he gave a headdress to replace her long golden hair.
What does Gungnir symbolize?
Like many weapons, Gungnir symbolizes power. Gungnir also symbolizes authority, protection, and strength.
Imbued with magic and always true, this mighty weapon is steady and relentless, a true powerhouse in the world of mythical Norse weaponry.
Properties of Gungnir
Most notable are the magical properties of the runes carved on the head of the spear. These runes ensured no matter the distance or what stood in its path, Gungnir would hit the target without fail.
Along with being imbued with magical accuracy, Gungnir itself was a masterfully crafted weapon. Perfectly weighted and balanced, Gungnir flew straight and true no matter the strength of the wielder.
Gungnir’s spear tip was also the sharpest blade in existence.
Forged from Uru metals and covered with runes, there was no weapon in Norse mythology that measured up to Gungnir.
Gungnir Vs. Mjolnir
When you remove the Norse gods from the equation and look at the merits of Gungnir versus Mjolnir as weapons, Gungnir is the clear winner.
Mjölnir’s strength and power depend on Thor. Gungnir is deadly sharp, perfectly balanced, and magically accurate no matter who handles the spear.
Mjölni r is one of the most well-known weapons in Norse mythology. But its strength and accuracy come directly from Thor himself. Additionally, Thor’s belt and glove increased Mjölnir’s powers.
Since Gungnir’s greatness doesn’t rely on any outside influence, Gungnir is the clear winner between the two weapons.
How did Gungnir influence the warriors of the Viking age?
Archaeological records from the Viking age make it clear that Gungnir significantly influenced the warriors of the time. They even fashioned their weapons to imitate the spear of Odin. Viking age warriors carve runes on their spearheads to improve their accuracy.
The way the Norse god Odin used his spear also inspired ancient warriors on the battlefield. Like Odin, warriors would send their spears flying, sinking into the ground beyond the enemy. This was a clear invitation to battle.
Gungnir in Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung
Gungnir has also inspired countless comics, movies, and even a 19th-century opera by German composer Robert Wagner.
While attestations from both the Prose Edda and the Poetic Edda make it clear that the spear of Odin was made from Uru metal, Wagner imagined much humbler origins for Gungnir.
In Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung , Gungnir was fashioned from the wood of the World Tree Yggdrasil .
