- "My God, you're a Valkyrie... You know, I used to want to be a Valkyrie when I was younger, until I found out you were all women. There's nothing wrong with women, of course, I like women. Sometimes a little too much. Not in a creepy way, just more like a respectful appreciation. I think it's great, an elite force of women warriors. It's about time."
- ―Thor to Valkyrie
Odin sent his Valkyries 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 Brunnhilde to forsake Asgard.
- In the comics the Valkyries, or Valkyrior, led by Brunnhilde, were killed in a war between Odin and Hela over rulership of Valhalla. Odin restored the Valkyries to life after he regained possession of Valhalla, but these Valkyries only have physical forms within Valhalla; outside it, they exist only in astral form.
