Magni: You. Surrender. The Allfather demands it.
Kratos: No.
Magni: Ah... Good.
~ Magni and Kratos.

Magni is the major antagonist in God of War. He was an Æsir god and the eldest son of Thor. He and his younger half-brother Modi both follow their uncle Baldur in the quest to find and kill Kratos.

He is voiced by Troy Baker, who also voiced Joel in The Last of Us, Pagan Min in Far Cry 4, Delsin Rowe in Infamous: Second Son, and The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins.


When they were children, Magni and Modi rescued their father after Hrungnir had fallen onto him after their father had killed the Giant. When everyone (with the exception of the God, Mimir) was too busy laughing, the two effortlessly lifted the corpse off Thor. Due to being the strongest and more charismatic, Magni was given all the praise for the effort, leaving his brother Modi incredibly jealous, fueling the rivalry between them.

Sometime after their uncle failed the first time, Magni and Modi were summoned by their grandfather Odin and ordered to aid Baldur in his hunt  to capture Kratos, after the former's failed first encounter with the legendary Greek god. They first visited imprisoned ambassador of the Norse gods, Mimir, seeking to know Kratos's location and how to deal with him. Unfortunately for them, Mimir doesn't know Kratos's location, and refuses to help them any further, even after Baldur promises to put a good word for him when returning to Odin. Before leaving, while Modi threatens to gourge out his other eye while no one was looking, Magni warns Mirmir that they would know if he double-crossed them.

They both continue their search for Kratos and track him down to Thamur's, a frost Giant killed by Thor, corpse. They discovered the corpse when Kratos and his son Atreus had used  the Giant's hammer to break through the ice to get his chisel. Magni eventually finds Kratos and Atreus when he drops to the ground from above while killing an Ogre. Tossing the beast's corpse aside, he orders the pair to surrender under Odin's orders, and when Kratos promptly refuses, Magni eagerly draws his sword for a fight. Following a vicious battle between Magni, Modi and Kratos and Atreus, Kratos is able to overpower Magni and split his head open with the Leviathan Axe, killing him.

Magni's death invoked severe consquences to both his brother and his killers. Driven by grief, his father Thor severely beat Modi for failing to both assist and then avenge his brother. This led to Modi seeking out Kratos and Atreus one last time before being killed himself by the latter.

Magni's, along with his brother and uncle's deaths, was one of the reasons why his father Thor sought out Kratos and Atreus, to avenge them.


Magni, like most of the Æsir, was a cruel and sadistic individual, taking pleasure in the suffering of those who stood in his way.

However, unlike his brother, who was a coward that enjoyed beating those weaker than himself. Magni had no problem fighting those who were as, or stronger than himself, merely eager for challenges. This is shown when he expressed relief when Kratos chose to fight rather than surrender.

Just like his brother, Magni was constantly trying to please his father, the mighty Thor, though due to being the favored son, his desire to do so was nowhere near as obsessive as Modi's.

Magni and his brother, Modi had a reputation of being called idiots/fools due to their low-intelligence. Many characters called them by many insults. Baldur called his own nephews as idiots. Kratos called them fools. Mimir called them bigger twits and worthless wankers. Sindri called them as Thor's idiot sons and Brok called Magni a loudmouth.

Oh, I'll smack you boy. No. We cannot disappoint father.
~ Magni to Modi of Thor
Magni was shown to look down on his brother, often giving him orders and threatening him when the latter mocked their father and uncle Baldur's orders. He was also quite disgusted with his brother's presumed pedophilia, asking what was wrong with him due to the latter's obsession with Atreus. Despite of he could smack Modi, but he agreed too as they don't want to disappoint Thor.
