Characters use axes, hammers, swords, and elemental powers (eg, lightning, flame) to kill enemies. Battles can be frantic at times, with dozens of small Viking figures attacking in waves. In a battle cutscene, a character is seen impaling himself in the torso with a sword.

Some female figures wear high necklines or are depicted with exposed breasts, but without noticeable details (i.e. no nipples).
