The TVA has caught a variety of variations, as shown in Disney+’s Loki. Here’s a list of every Loki variant that has been confirmed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Loki Laufeyson learns that he isn’t the only one after being apprehended by the Time Variance Authority and told that he is a time-violating criminal known as a “variant.” The TVA has had to “prune” Loki variants more than virtually any other form of variant, according to Loki episode 2, “The Variant.” Mobius illustrates Loki’s argument by showing him a handful of the other versions that have plagued the TVA.

The fact that there have been so many earlier Loki versions explains why Mobius seemed to recognise him right away and spoke to him as if they were old friends (or foes) when Loki first arrived at the TVA. Loki is establishing the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s multiverse through his research of the “holy timeline” and the threat that variants pose to it, a concept that was hinted in Spider-Man: Far From Home and will be the fundamental premise of next year’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

It’s no surprise that Loki, the God of Mischief and an incurable trickster, has attempted to break free from the holy timeline in a variety of ways. One Loki version has been attacking TVA Minutemen and taking their reset charges as part of a plan to irreversibly disturb the sacred chronology – but what have the others done? Here’s a list of every Loki variant confirmed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far.

Craig Elvy updated this page on Friday, July 9, 2021: All Loki variants revealed in Loki episodes 4 and 5 have been added to this article.

Loki L1130

Loki’s main version was formed during the events of Avengers: Endgame, when the Avengers travelled back in time to steal the Infinity Stones before Thanos destroyed them. The Tesseract came within Loki’s reach after an unpleasant incident between Tony Stark and the Hulk, and he used it to break free from the holy timeline in which he was carried back to Asgard and began his path towards redemption. The sadness of Frigga’s death, the loss of Odin, and the ruin of Asgard hadn’t yet hit this 2012 Loki, but he caught up on those events – as well as his own demise – by looking through the TVA’s records. And then there was the encounter with Lady Loki.

this Loki variant may be hoping to alter the main timeline to one where he isn’t killed by Thanos.

Hulk Loki

The Loki form that most closely resembles the Hulk, with greenish-yellow skin and tremendous muscles, is perhaps the oddest-looking of all the Loki variants. This version of Loki has ripped garments and curving horns that grow directly out of his head rather than being worn as a helmet, indicating either a recent metamorphosis or a semi-feral existence. Fans know and admire Loki for his constant quest for power, so perhaps this version saw the Hulk and thought he needed some gamma-irradiated blood of his own. In the comics, the Hulking Loki emerges briefly when all of the Lokis are gathered together.

Viking Loki

Loki L7803, for example, is a direct reference to a narrative told by Loki in Mighty Thor. Loki wears the ancient Viking attire on the cover of Mighty Thor #6 and in a Viking-era storey that the present-day Loki relates, which includes a horned helmet that covers the top half of Loki’s face and a green moss cape. When his prayers to Thor fail to bring him success in battle, a Viking warrior named Bodolf becomes enraged and prays to Loki instead. Loki, ever ready to destroy his brother, convinces Bodolf that if he drinks the blood of a dragon, he would be able to defeat Thor in combat. Bodolf succeeds in defying Thor, but at the cost of undergoing a transformation into a monster.The Asgardians visited Midgard during the Viking era and were worshipped as gods by the Norsemen, therefore this Loki variety could have been trimmed for tampering centuries ago.

Tour De France Loki

Not all Loki versions aspire to be King of Space; Loki L1247, for example, appears to have only wished to be recognised for his long-distance cycling. Loki L1247 is also seen clutching the Coupe Omnisports – the trophy presented to the victor of the Tour de France – while wearing the race leader’s yellow jersey, some customised cycle shorts, and a bib with “Team Loki” inscribed on it. When Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas’ Coupe Omnisports was stolen in 2018, this blue and gold cup made news. The trophy was never found, and Thomas had to settle for a substitute. Perhaps Loki L1247 was the perpetrator, stealing the Coupe Omnisports so he could brag about being crowned the greatest cyborg.

Trickster Loki

The Vikings were hardly the only people who worshipped a trickster god. Loki variation L8914 resembles the Greek god Pan, with horns, a beard, and what appear to be cloven hoofs instead of feet. Pan is the god of the wild, famed for his love of nature and song, as well as his insatiable passion. He is the son of another trickster, Hermes, and is often represented as a faun with goat legs, a beard, and horns. Loki is only a few thousand years old, making him too young to have been a deity to the ancient Greeks, although this variation may have been inspired by Pan. He’s dressed in a loose green suit with a scarf or beads around his neck, and he appears to be wearing one of President Loki’s campaign badges.

Frost Giant Loki

Loki may appear to be an Asgardian, but the events of Thor revealed that he is the son of Laufey, the Frost Giants’ leader. Loki had always been a bit of a rogue, but discovering that he wasn’t Odin’s biological son was the catalyst for his descent into villainy. When Mobius refers to him as a “ice runt” in Loki episode 2, he is referring to his origins (in the comics, Loki was drastically undersized for a Frost Giant). Mobius’ recollection of prior meetings with Lokis shows that one version proudly wore his blue skin and crimson eyes, revealing his Frost Giant origin. When he decided to conquer Jotunheim, the home of the Frost Giant, this version of Loki may have deviated from the timeline.

President Loki

Many fans expected President Loki to play a large role in the Disney+ proceedings after appearing prominently in Loki’s marketing. Some speculated that the narrative was influenced by the Marvel comic series Vote Loki, which ran during the 2016 presidential election. President Loki makes his first appearance in Loki episode 5, and is the only other live-action variation played by Tom Hiddleston thus far. This rendition of Loki comes straight from the miniseries Vote Loki, in which the God of Mischief stands for president. His campaign platform claims that all of the candidates are liars and cheaters, but he commits to loudly and proudly lie to the American people in front of their eyes – a policy that has been widely criticised.

The political pest is one of the Loki varieties consigned to the Void by the TVA, and he leads a band of less ambitious Lokis stranded at the end of eternity as well. President Loki invades the bowling alley HQ with his silent cohorts in an attempt to usurp Kid Loki’s crown, exposing an allegiance to Boastful Loki that is shortly (and inevitably) reneged upon. While politicians are normally conciliatory in their speeches, President Loki manages to disrespect Alligator Loki and has his hand bitten off as a result (a clever homage to MCU Phase 2’s limb-losing motif). The versions engage in a ferocious struggle as a result of this. Nobody knows what happened to this Loki contender right now.

Lady Loki/Sylvie

Lady Loki, also known as Sylvie, is the huge reveal at the end of Loki episode 2. This unknown woman, played by Sophia Di Martino, wears Asgardian clothes and has a haircut that is identical to Loki’s (but blonde), as well as a miniature replica of his horned helmet. Lady Loki has been reborn into Lady Sif’s body in the comics, while the character’s gender is confirmed as gender-fluid in the MCU Loki’s files. Di Martino’s figure, on the other hand, is more of a hybrid of Lady Loki from traditional comics and Sylvie the Enchantress, mixing features of both with a few additional twists.

Before committing an as-yet-unknown offense against the Sacred Timeline, Sylvie lived blissfully on Asgard as a youngster (possibly aspiring to become a Valkyrie). Sylvie was apprehended by Ravonna Renslayer during her Minutemen days, but she was able to take a TemPad and flee into a life of crime. Sylvie’s main purpose is to exact vengeance on the Time-Keepers who wronged her, but even after reaching their enigmatic room, Sylvie’s hunger for vengeance remains unsatisfied. Sylvie has built an intimate, romantic relationship with Tom Hiddleston’s version in her quest to learn who actually runs the show at the TVA.

Classic Loki

This older Loki, played by Richard E. Grant, is what happens when the God of Mischief survives the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Rather than using daggers as his weapon of choice, this original Loki chose to master sorcery, becoming so skilled that he was able to mislead Thanos into murdering an illusion. Grant’s Loki became a target of the TVA after surviving past his fated point of death, but he managed to hide in exile for many years. After eventually missing his brother, the variation ventured beyond his safe haven and was picked up by Minutemen, trimmed, and transported to the Void.

Meeting the L1130 variant, this classic version of Loki (so named because he wears the God of Mischief’s first comic book outfit) rediscovered his glorious purpose and sacrificed his life to conjure a mirage of Asgard and distract Alioth, allowing Sylvie and Loki to reach beyond the Void and discover the true enemy of all Lokis.

Kid Loki

Kid Loki, played by Jack Veal, is clearly more dangerous than he appears, as his Nexus event resulted in the death of Thor. Though the complete storey has yet to be recounted, it appears that this young variation carried youthful sibling rivalry too far and killed Odin’s genuine son, the God of Thunder. Kid Loki received a one-way trip to the Void as a result of his defiance of the Sacred Timeline, where his Thor-killing exploits gained him leadership over the other Loki versions. The youngster appears to have a strong bond with the Alligator Loki version, and his demeanour is more measured than his young age and traumatic past would suggest.

Boastful Loki

Fans may have assumed a superhero God of Mischief had finally risen when a Loki variation holding a hammer appeared in the post-credits sequence of episode 4. Unfortunately, Boastful Loki isn’t just a name, and DeObia Oparei’s character isn’t afraid to stretch the truth to its limits. Boastful Loki states his Nexus event was defeating Iron Man and Captain America in fast succession, then taking the entire Infinity Gauntlet for himself, speaking with Hiddleston’s persona and the other versions. Obviously, this is incorrect, and the full nature of Boastful Loki’s crime remains unclear. From Boastful Loki’s false tales, we can deduce that the hammer he wields is less Mjolnir variation and more Mjolnir.

Alligator Loki

Is that a Loki, or something else? Is it just an alligator, or something more? In any case, the MCU’s next great mystery has come. Because of its green hue, Kid Loki and the others imagined it was a Loki variation like them when they spotted an alligator in the empty realm. While no one knows for sure, Classic Loki appears to be able to hear the alligator’s words, implying that he’s more than a basic creature, and that if the animal wasn’t a Loki version, he’d have come up with a better Nexus event than devouring the incorrect cat. Though Alligator Loki is prone to rage (taking a bite from Boastful Loki and a larger chomp from President Loki), he appears to have entire faith in Kid Loki.

The Void Variants

Seven more versions populate the Void realm and act as the President’s loyal-ish warriors, in addition to President Loki (centre) and Trickster Loki (second-from-right), who are detailed above. A hooded Green Arrow Loki, a horned Jumpsuit Loki covering everywhere save the eyes, a hairier Tall Loki lurking in the back, Pilot Loki who’s certainly compensating for something with those horns, and Samurai Loki clothed in a spiked helmet are shown from left to right. A European Conqueror Loki dressed like Ghengis Khan from Night at the Museum, a Red-Haired Loki who looks like he was pruned straight out of Camden Town, and a chilled-looking Punk-Rocker Lo are all on the president’s right.

Red-Hair Loki carries a ball on a chain, while Samurai Loki favours a blade, Green Arrow Loki wields a yellow knife, and Conqueror Loki wields an axe. The rest rely on a variety of unremarkable melee weapons scavenged from Loki’s Void’s wreckage. During the free-for-all battle, Pilot Loki is shown employing magic, while Tall Loki, who is bigger and hairier, appears to have the most raw power. It’s unclear whether we’ll see these rough-around-the-edges varieties again.
