A collection of quotes from the Asgardian goddess of death, Hela.


Thor: Ragnarok

Spoken by Hela

"I'm not a queen or a monster. I'm the Goddess of Death."
―Hela to Thor[src]
"Asgard is dead and it will be reborn in my image."
"You're in my seat."
―Hela to Thor[src]
"You look like a smart boy. How would you like a job?"
Hela to Skurge[src]
"Does no one remember me? Has no one been taught our history? Look at these lies. Goblets and garden parties? Peace treaties? Odin... Proud to have it, ashamed of how he got it. We were unstoppable. I was his weapon in the conquest that built Asgard's empire. One by one, the realms became ours. But then, simply because my ambition outgrew his, he banished me, caged me, locked me away like an animal. Before that, Asgard's warriors were honored, their bodies buried as heroes beneath this very palace."
"Fake! Most of the stuff in here is fake. Weak! Smaller than I thought it would be. That's not bad. But this! The Eternal Flame..."
"Skurge, do you know the purpose of an executioner? An executioner doesn't just execute people, but he executes his leader's vision. But he mainly executes them too. I was Odin's executioner. Now, you shall be mine."
Hela to Skurge[src]
"What were you the God of again?"
Hela to Thor[src]
"Skurge, where’s the sword? That sword is the key to opening the Bifrost. These people you mentioned, the ones who aren’t falling into line. Round them up."
Hela to Skurge[src]

Spoken about Hela

"I need to stop her here and now to prevent Ragnarök – the end of everything."
"I don’t want to fight your sister. That’s a family issue."
Bruce Banner to Thor[src]


"Beg your pardon?"
"You must be Hela. I'm Thor, son of Odin.."
"Really? You don't look like him."
"Perhaps we can come to an arrangement?"
"You sound like him. Kneel...before your queen."
"I don't think so. It's not possible..
"Darling, you have no idea what's possible..."
Hela, Loki and Thor[src]
"It's come to my attention that you don't know who I am. I am Hela. Odin's firstborn. Commander of the legions of Asgard. The rightful heir to the throne and the Goddess of Death. My father is dead. As are the princes. You're welcome. We were once the seat of absolute power in the cosmos. Our supremacy was unchallenged. Yet Odin stopped at Nine Realms. Our destiny is to rule over all others. And I am here to restore that power. Kneel before me and rise into the ranks of my great conquest."
"Whoever you were, whatever you've done, surrender now or we will show you no mercy."
"Whoever I am? Did you not listen to a word I said?"
Hela and Hogun[src]
"Oh, I've missed this! Still, it's a shame. Good soldiers dying for nothing all because they couldn't see the future. Oh, look. Still alive. Change of heart?"
"Go back to whatever chamber you crept out of, you evil demoness!"
Hela and Hogun[src]
"What is that noise?"
"The common folk aren’t exactly falling in line. There’s a resistance trying to knock down the front gates."
Hela and Skurge[src]
"You're still alive."
"I love what you've done with the place. Redecorated and everything."
"It would seem our father's solution to every problem was to cover it up."
"Or cast it out. I would love for someone else to rule but it can't be you. You're just... the worst."
"Okay. Get up. You're in my seat."
Hela and Thor[src]

Avengers: Infinity War

Spoken about Hela

"Families can be tough. Before my father died, he told me I had a half-sister that he imprisoned in Hel. Then she returned home and stabbed me in the eye, so I had to kill her. I feel your pain."
Thor to Gamora[src]
"And you said that your sister and your dad..."
"Both dead."
Rocket Raccoon and Thor[src]
