Kvasir’s Poems are collectibles that you can find scattered all over the Nine Realms in the game. These are 14 pieces of poetry, and each poem references a certain PlayStation-exclusive game, including games like Death Stranding and Horizon Forbidden West. It is a wholesome gesture from Sony Santa Monica to reference other games from Playstation Studios.

2. Thrud And Mjolnir

After ending the game, go to Lunda, and she will tell you to visit her at the shop in Alfheim near the desert. She actually wants to show you something there. Basically, you can see Thrud come to terms with her feelings and use Mjolnir. She says that she will be better and flies off using Mjolnir. It is another wholesome scene that players might forget to go watch in the game.

3. Ratatoskr And His Chime

Ratatoskr shows you a chime that you can hit with your Leviathan Axe to call on him. Basically, it can be used to summon him if you want to start or complete some side quest with him. However, if you continuously hit the chime with your Axe, then Ratatoskr has some special dialogue in store for you, and you should go test it out for yourself in the game.

4. Sinmara Crying

Surtr specifically mentions not to tell Sinmara of his death to create Ragnarok. However, after ending the main story, we visit the realm of Niflheim again. We can hear Sinmara crying out for Surtr, and that just shows how the feelings of love can surpass even the Nine Realms. It is a nice little detail you might miss if you don’t visit Niflheim after the story ends.

5. Jotunheim Revisit

After ending the game, Kratos gets various Yggdrasil Seeds that unlock realm travel to new areas. One of these is Jotunheim, and it will be the first time you’ll visit that realm as Kratos. There you can talk to Angrboda, pet Fenrir, and learn new lore about Ragnarok. It is another secret visit that only unlocks after you’ve beaten the game.

6. Troll Statues

You must’ve stumbled upon various Troll Statues in God Of War Ragnarok. These were actually major bosses in God Of War 2018, but they are now dormant and standing still like statues. However, you can actually fight them, and most players will probably forget battling these trolls. You actually need a special Relic known as the Mystical Heirloom to fight these trolls, and that can only be found in the late game. However, most players don’t even know the purpose of that relic even after finding it, which is why they miss out on these secret Troll Boss Battles.

7. Bear McCreary

Did you know that Bear McCreary, the composer of God Of War Ragnarok’s masterclass music, is actually a character in the game? He is actually the bard or musician in the tavern in Svartalfheim. 

8. GNA

Gna is another secret boss battle that players might miss as it is available only after ending the game’s main storyline. It is one of the best boss fights you should not miss out on. Additionally, the secret battle is actually located in Muspelheim in God Of War Ragnarok.

It is the only Valkyrie boss fight in the game, aside from the duo of Valkyries that you fight at the Spark of the World. Basically, you battle Odin’s Valkyrie Queen Gna, and at the end of the fight, there is a special cutscene that is absolutely worth it.

9. Ravenkeeper

Another secret boss fight that you might miss in the game is the Ravenkeeper boss fight. It is not a matter of it being hidden but the amount of grind that you have to do to unlock the boss fight. You have to destroy all 48 of Odin’s Ravens to start this boss fight at the Raven Tree in Niflheim.

10. Chaurli

Don’t forget to visit Chaurli with Freya after ending the game for a special interaction between the two characters. We added this to our list as most players might forget to visit Chaurli after ending the main questline.

11. Eavesdropping In Asgard

Did you know that, as Atreus, you can eavesdrop on various characters in Asgard? That includes Thor, Sif, Thrud, Heimdall, and Odin. Some players might miss doing this, but it is a fun little secret that just makes you learn more lore about what’s happening in the game. 

12. The Secret Ending

The ending that you get after Kratos and Atreus separate is not actually the real ending. You have to go to Svartalfheim for Brok’s funeral to get the real ending. It concludes Sindri’s character, and you hear one of the most emotional songs while saying your final goodbyes to Brok.

13. The Real Tyr

Finding out that the Tyr we rescue is Odin was one of the biggest plot twists in God Of War Ragnarok. However, after the story ends, you can go rescue the Real Tyr from the Asgardian Prison in Niflheim. Additionally, you can then meet Tyr in all of the eight realms for some special dialogue and lore drops. It is another great little detail that most players might never find.

14. Revisiting Kratos’ Home

After ending the game, go visit Kratos’ home in Midgard, and you will find a special surprise from Atreus. It is a gift from Atreus that he left for his father, and Kratos keeps it in his own collection. There is some special dialogue between Kratos and Mimir here as well.

15. Thor Vs Faye

There is a huge optional area you can explore in Vanaheim, known as the Crater Region. This area is filled with hours of side content, but what surprised us the most was the secret lore you can find here. There is a frozen lighting bolt that you can find in the Crater similar to the one of Midgard that was created after the battle between Thor and Kratos.

However, the one in the Crater was created after the battle between Thor and Faye that happened in the past. It is a cool little lore secret that you can uncover here. Additionally, you will find more information about why the battle happened after you complete the various side quests in the Crater region, including the Return of the River Favor.

This concludes our guide on the little secrets and easter eggs you might have missed in your playthrough of God Of War Ragnarok. We tried our best to mention every secret we found in the game. However, we might have missed a few on our list. Let me know if I missed any secrets about the game in the comments below!
