HRUNGNIR

Norse fabulous creature

A particularly annoying Stone Giant

The mighty stone and clay creature who was always getting drunk and challenging the Gods to contests. He never seemed to win but that never stopped him becoming a belligerent pest.

THOR reduced him to builder’s rubble in a final contest, but not without getting fragments of stone in his head and being trapped for some time under the fallen remains. See also GROA.
