Thor: 10 MCU Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses

While it's not difficult to imagine the Asgardians of the Marvel world in a magical setting, imagining the gods of Asgard as young, fresh-faced students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is adorable. From Odin carrying Frigga's books (or teasing her relentlessly, a la James Potter) to Loki using the Marauder's Map to cause havoc, it's almost begging to be made into a Disney special.

We might be quick to assume just because someone is a noble Asgardian warrior bound for battle, they will automatically fall into the Gryffindor House, but that's not always going to be the case.

10 Loki: Slytherin

Perhaps the most obvious decision the Sorting Had would ever make when it comes to Asgardians is with Loki, the trickster god, who is a Slytherin if there ever was one. Loki is never completely serious and always has a plan up his sleeve, which is why his demise in Avengers: Infinity War was so unacceptable. Surely he had another plan all along...

Loki is all about self-preservation, his own ambition and his pride, which are all the trademark qualities of a Slytherin, but he has even gone as far as being a snake. He also tends to dress the part in some pretty snazzy green and gold outfits. Add a little silver and boom, he's ready for a Quidditch match.

9 Heimdall: Hufflepuff

Heimdall is one of the bravest Asgardians, and he's also one of the smartest, given his all-seeing and all-hearing abilities. It's his devout loyalty to his people, as well as his job as sole protector of the Bifröst, that make him a truehearted Hufflepuff. Heimdall will not be distracted from his purpose, at least in 99 out of 100 cases, and he knows what's important in not only his life, but for the Asgardians as well.

Heimdall is a trustworthy ally, one of the few whom Thor can trust to assist his people when he's not in Asgard, and despite how caring he is, he's also quite honest, giving people true answers when asked.

8 Odin: Slytherin

In his old age, Odin may have learned otherwise, but during his life, the Allfather valued valor and strength above all else. He may have been sorted into Gryffindor if that were it, but he was a tricky old man, perhaps as much as his adopted son, Loki, which lands him into the Slytherin House.

Odin doesn't just rush into battle; he knows he has to have a plan in order to make it worth the cost. He also locks up Hela, whom he was happy to use for his own vengeful ways until he decided that he couldn't control her anymore. Pair that with the fact that he stole his son from a Frost Giant and you definitely have a Slytherin.

7 Frigga: Ravenclaw

Thor's mother may be the loving goddess of marriage and known among the Asgardians as the compassionate nurturer, but she's also a clever one and known as a wise queen. She can see right into what Odin is doing, and has even outsmarted him in the comic books. Frigga notices what's going on with Thor right away in Avengers: Endgame and gives him sage advice, which she's generally good at doing.

If only Frigga could avoid the fat-shaming. Ravenclaws can sometimes have sharp tongues. Perhaps she should suggest counseling or laying off the booze instead of eating salad to her son.

6 Jane Foster: Ravenclaw

While Jane Foster has exhibited qualities from each Hogwarts House, and fans are about to see her become more Gryffindor than ever, she has always been, and will always be, a Ravenclaw. Jane is all about pursuing knowledge, even at great personal cost. You want to upset her? Take away her lab equipment. She won't need Mjolnir to come down hard on you for that.

Jane has a level head, which is why she ultimately had to let Thor go. She's constantly busy in her work, although we're bound to see her become even busier in the upcoming film, Thor: Love & Thunder, in which she'll portray the Mighty Thor of the comics.

5 Volstagg: Gryffindor

Many of the Asgardians could fall into either the Hufflepuff or Gryffindor camp since they value loyalty and bravery above all else. Volstagg, one of Thor's best and bravest companions, certainly falls into this conundrum, and the Sorting Hat would likely have to walk a line before finally deciding to put him into Gryffindor.

Given that the same fate would be in store for the other Warriors Three, Fandral and Hogun, we will include them all together here as Gryffindors that are always ready for battle. In the comic history, Vostagg in particular wasn't always as skilled as he is today, but so were many famous Gryffindors, like Neville Longbottom.

4 Sif: Hufflepuff

Not only are Hufflepuffs "just and loyal," but they also aren't "afraid of toil," which describes Lady Sif perfectly. The case could easily be made that she belongs in Gryffindor, and she would definitely discuss that with the Sorting Hat. She is as brave as all of the other warriors of Asgard, after all, and she'll rush into battle on a moment's notice.

But Sif is incredibly loyal, to the point where she even admits that, as a warrior of Odin, she "bows to his will." She told Coulson, "Much like your S.H.I.E.L.D., we are bound by our code." This is the thinking of a Hufflepuff. Naturally, she wasn't loyal to Loki when she recognized him as a usurper.

3 Hela: Slytherin

Another obvious choice, Hela would be sorted into Slytherin before the hat even touched her hair. The former executioner of Asgard desired power over all else, prompting many a meme from fans who thought she might simply be Galadriel had she taken the One Ring from Frodo.

Riding on Fenris while brandishing her Necroswords and conquering the universe is what makes Hela happy, which is why when Odin said she had to stop at the Nine Realms she grew a bit... testy. Despite the danger she presents to the universe, Hela's rage is understandable since Odin used her for his bidding until he no longer needed her.

2 Valkyrie: Gryffindor

While Valkyrie clearly exhibits some sly Slytherin traits, particularly while kidnapping the god of thunder, at heart she is a Gryffindor who is so ashamed of remaining alive after battle that she's in self-imposed exile. Valkyrie is not only the strongest and most fearless warrior at Thor's side, but she's the person he has chosen to rule in his stead.

Fans are beyond excited about the prospect, as well as the idea of Valkyrie finding her queen, as Tessa Thompson stated at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year. That remark glowed with so much Gryffindor nerve and swagger and fans can't wait to see where it leads.

1 Thor: Gryffindor

Is there anyone in the MCU with a temper like Thor's? Seeing him down and out broke all of our hearts, but we understood his grief and guilt as not only a survivor but also as the person who wielded a tool who could take Thanos down and didn't go for the arm. Thor has always been more brawn than brains, which often still works out for him, but it also gets him into that trademark Gryffindor trouble from time to time.

As Thor joins up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, those Gryffindor traits will surely come in handy as he sets off into space.
