Magni is the son of Thor in Norse Mythology.


Magni is the son of Thor and the Jotunn, Jarnsaxa. While Thor lay unconscious under the large foot of his fallen foe, Hrungnir, no other god or being could lift the foot off. Thor's three day old son Magni arrived and lifted it off easily. In thanks, Thor gave Magni Hrungnir's magical horse, named Gullfaxi. Odin, Magni's grandfather, admonished Thor for giving the horse to the child of a Jotunn, and not to his father, ie himself.


Dragons: Riders of Berk

In "Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Man", the Dragon Riders make their way atop a glacier on Berk in order solve a clue on a treasure map from Hamish II. The clue states:

Call on Magni; you'll go astray. Freya, though, will show the way. [src]
  — Third Clue  

Snotlout then partly breaks the ice with his helmet, setting off a trap that nearly kills him. Fishlegs and Hiccup then realize that the clue is telling them to use fire rather than strength, because Magni is the god of strength and Freya is the goddess of fire.


  • The name 'Magni' translates to 'mighty'.
