There are five mortal heroes players can control in Asgard's Wrath.
Unlike other RPGs, the heroes are not the player's in-game avatar. Instead, the player character is a demigod who takes control of these main story characters through possession, aiding them in their quests by providing god powers in addition to the hero's own abilities. The player can also explore the worlds in their own form, which is able to find things that a hero could not.

Fallen heroes[edit | edit source]
When players die, there is a chance that other players may discover them as "fallen heroes" appearing as purple apparitions at the location of their defeat. Players can then accept a challenge to avenge the fallen heroes. Yggdrasil seeds are awarded upon successfully completing these challenges.
