After her successful siege of Asgard, Hela appointed the Asggardian Skurge as her enforcer and executioner. Providing him with a weapon, Hela drew the bloodaxe straight from her body, presenting it to Skurge, who took up the role offered to him.
- In the non-canon game Thor: The Dark World - The Official Game, the Bloodaxe was forged from uru by the Dwarves of Nidavellir. It was stolen by the Dark Elves during an attack on Nidavellir. It was taken to Jotunheim, where Heimdall sent Thor and Sif to recover it. The two Asgardians discovered the Dark Elves using the Bloodaxe as part of a ritual. They successfully took it back from the Dark Elves after they defeated the monster guarding it, the giant Ymir, and went back to Asgard with the weapon in tow.
