    • Just prior to using Zantetsuken, Odin will annouce his preparation to use it by saying the following-

"Mine obsidian blade shall split atwain the threads of thy future... ...whilst its crimson fuller shalt channel the lifeblood of thy past. Now wail as thy soul is bestrewn across the plains of Valhalla!"

Historical Information

In Norse mythology, Odin was the leader of the Aesir, one of the two tribes of Norse gods, and was attributed as being the god of wisdom, wizardry, war, death, victory, poetry, and the hunt. In order to establish mastery over magic, Odin suspended himself from a branch of the great ash tree Yggdrassil and allows himself to be stabbed in the side by his spear, the Gungnir until he had an epiphany, and became knowledgeable of all magical runes.

Odin presided over battle and honorable death, creating a vast hall called Valhalla for those honorable warriors who met death on the battlefield. These warriors, known as the Einherjar, would feast heartily until their services would be required during the Ragnarok, the final battle between good and evil. Odin was fated to meet his death in a vicious struggle with the demon hound Fenrisulfr, who would devour him whole.
