Ranking Of The Top 10 Toughest Characters From The Vinland Saga!

The Vikings in the Vinland Saga are centered on their quest to find the enigmatic and affluent Vinland. In the past, Vikings were raiders who pillaged monasteries and communities.

As a result, there are numerous disputes and fierce battles in Vinland Saga. Many of the Viking characters in the series are skilled fighters, both with and without weapons. At times, their tremendous strength rivals even the English army.

Now let’s order the strongest characters in the Vinland Saga manga according to their raw power and strength.

10. Gardar

Vinland Saga

Gardar’s large, scarred frame gives him a commanding presence. But his story is one of tragedy.

Gardar was once a brave Viking warrior with a devoted wife and son, but after he was sold into slavery, he was torn away from them. He promises to flee away with his family and make things right with them.

In order to save his family, Gardar travels to Ketil’s home, where he is met by Snake’s mercenaries and Snake himself. He dispatches a few mercenaries, but Snake escapes his grasp. In the end, he passes away from severe wounds received in his fight with Snake.

9. Hild

Vinland Saga

In many ways, Hild resembles Thorfinn from the War arc. Like Thorfinn, she seeks to exact revenge for her family’s passing. But since Thorfinn killed her father, she intends to exact revenge by killing him.

When Hild is fighting her opponents on her own territory, a crossbow, an unusual weapon, is a good choice. When they first meet in the wilderness, she effectively uses surprise to overwhelm an unarmed Thorfinn.

8. Bjorn

Vinland Saga

Bjorn served as Askeladd’s gang’s second-in-command. His fighting style was modeled in the berserker mushroom-based fighting style of the Vikings.

When Bjorn was sober, he rarely got into fights. To get wild, he consumed berserker mushrooms. He killed almost twelve of Canute’s friends while acting berserk.

But Thors was unaffected by his berserker mode. He was ultimately assassinated by Askeladd during the War arc.

7. Wulf

Vinland Saga

Wulf’s official status as a member of Canute’s Royal Guard is evidence of his true power. Canute’s head Thegn and devoted instructor is Wulf.

In the Slave arc, Wulf took part in the battle of Ketil Farm. He didn’t start out fighting, but when Thorgil tried to kill Canute, he had to step in.

He was able to keep Thorgil down for a few seconds, but he was unable to do so for very long. Thorgil savagely gouged out Wulf’s eye with his own hands, forcing the latter to release him and allow him to flee.

Wulf, though, is unafraid despite this experience. He acts as Thorkell’s personal guard during the Baltic Sea War, demonstrating that he is still somewhat relevant.

6. Thorgil

Vinland Saga

It seems that even Thorgil’s father is frightened by his cruelty. Thorgil, like Garm and Thorkell, relishes engaging in combat and murder.

Thorgil’s formidable combat prowess is explained by the fact that he was a former Thegn of Canute’s. He kills a number of Vikings during the Canute vs. Ketil conflict before they can react. Without any restraint, he even chops off Canute’s guards’ arms.

He is, however, vulnerable to unanticipated attacks and counters, which is his only shortcoming. Canute defeats his sneak attack as a result of this weakness towards the conclusion of the Slave arc.

5. Snake

Vinland Saga

During the Slave arc of Vinland Saga, Snake makes his debut. He is the commander of the soldiers that guard Ketil’s farm from any threats.

Snake’s identity is initially kept a secret. Later on, though, it becomes clear that he had previously worked as a Varangian Guard for Roman emperors.

Think of a Varangian Guard as the personal bodyguard of an emperor if you are unfamiliar with the term. This implies that Snake is actually much stronger than he appears to be.

Snake used his fighting prowess to protect Thorfinn and other slaves from harsh punishments during the Slave arc. Thorfinn believes Snake to be more powerful than Old Askeladd. Snake can move as quickly as Thorfinn.

4. Askeladd

Vinland Saga

Askeladd, unlike other Vikings, employs cunning plans and a superior intellect to triumph in combat. Once he combines his intellectual abilities with his swordsmanship, he becomes a lethal adversary.

When Askeladd was a little boy, he was already a great swordsman who could dispatch master fighters like his father with ease. He eventually kills berserker Bjorn, defeating him even in combat. In multiple battles, he kills Ragnar, Canute’s bodyguard, as well as numerous other Vikings.

During his peak, Askeladd battled Thors, who was forced to employ some strategy to fend off the former’s sneak attacks. Furthermore, Askeladdin had never lost a fight to a skilled Viking like Thorfinn while Askeladd was still alive.

3. Thorfinn

Vinland Saga

Since the prologue, Thorfinn has developed significantly as a warrior and a Viking. He has faced many opponents who are twice his age, and he is now finally developing into an experienced fighter.

Thorfinn’s fighting style favors quick, lethal strikes over powerful blows. He uses his athleticism to outrun his opponents and attack them where it counts to render them helpless. By deflecting Garm’s fast spear assault, he easily defeats him.

Thorfinn is also remarkably resilient. He survives even when Thorkell tosses him around like a toy during their initial conflict. Additionally, he withstands nearly 100 punches from Drott, a man who is famed for killing bears.

2. Thorkell

Vinland Saga

One of the most powerful Vikings still living, Thorkell, sometimes known as Thorkell the Tall or Thorkell the Invincible, works for King Canute.

Thorkell’s incredible power makes him unique. He is capable of easily defeating strong animals like bears. He accomplishes the astounding accomplishment of lifting a boulder that weighs many tonnes during the War arc. Even losing two of his hand’s fingers didn’t stop him much.

In addition, despite his enormous height, he moves quickly and reacts quickly. During their initial encounter in chapter 19, Thorfinn barely managed to avoid his rapid blows. He can also keep up with the agile Garm, who is highly known.

1. Thors Snorresson

Vinland Saga

Even though Thors Snorresson is a pacifist, no other Vinland Saga figure has come close to matching his physical might and fighting skills.

Thors are capable of engaging a full ship’s worth of foes in hand-to-hand combat. He defeats a Thorkell with a weapon using only his hands. The strongest character in the Vinland Saga thanks to his high endurance and simultaneous avoidance of several enemy strikes.

Thors died without having lost a battle. Thors was only killed by Askeladd because he employed dishonest tactics.
