Badass Norse god dude. Has one eye because he sacrificed one to drink from the Well of Wisdom and know everything. Was impaled on his spear, Gugnir, for nine days, and was given the Futhark (Runes). He also has two ravens that sit on his shoulders and fly around looking at things and telling him about them.

Odin is also a complete and total hardass who was hung from a tree thousands of years before Jesus made it cool. He can outdrink anyone except Thor, and likes to get together with his Germanic doppelganger Wotan and play darts. Is cooler than Muhammed and Ganesh and all those people.
Odin can beat up your god.

Odin is the All-Father deity in the Norse Pantheon (What the Vikings/Scandinavians believed in before converted by Christian Missionaries)

He is son of Bor and Bestla, brother to Vili and Ve. Each of them has a specific meaning to their name, Odin's being Spirit.

Often depicted as an older man with a long hair and a long beard, Odin wears a large brimmed hat to cover up his missing eye, and holds a futhark laden spear, Gungnir; a spear forged by dwarves that never misses its target. Odin also sometimes wears a fancy winged helmet.

Odin lost his eye when he sacrificed it to drink from the well at the base of the world tree, Yggdrasil for ultimate wisdom. In return, he gained unimaginable wisdom and his remaining eye glows as bright as the sun.

Odin gained his knowledge of Runes from hanging nine days from a branch of Yggdrasil, stabbed with his own spear Gungnir. At the end of these nine days he had seen the runes (Futhark) and learned nine songs.

The All-Father resiedes on his throne Hlidskjalf in the hall Valaskjalf in Asgard, with his wife Frigga, his two ravens Huginn & Muninn (Thought and Memory), his two wolves Freki & Geri, and his mighty eight-legged horse and steed Sliepnir.

He is the All-Father of Asgard, the Hall of the Gods. He is the God of War, Wisdom, Poetry, and death. He makes the wisest of the dead speak to him in order for him to learn.

Odin is also master of the Valkyries, beautiful but deadly warrior maidens who bring the mightiest and most honorable of the slain to Valhalla, where they become Einherjer and await for the final battle at Ragnarok.

Odin is the father of many others, including Vali, Vidar, Tyr, Balder,Hermod, and Hod to name a few.

During the final battle, Odin will lead all the Gods, the Valkyries, and the Einherjer into Ragnarok. He will fight the colossal and unnatural wolf Fenrir, where he will be killed. Upon his death, his son Vidar, God of Silence and Revenge, will stick his iron boot into the wolf's jaws, and with a mighty pull, tear the wolf's head in two.
Nine long days did Odin hang, Pierced by his spear as sharp as a fang, free of fear and staring into oblivion, did the runes then come. Futhark they were, and 18 strong, from fire and from ice, the magic begun.

1. One of the most powerful gods in norse mythology, and the father of Thor. Can change his form to anything he likes.

2. One of the gods you can choose as your primary in Age of Mythology. Not the best of the norse gods, I guess Loki's myth unit rush is more effective.
1. Wednesday is named after Odin (onsdag)

2. Odin sucks, I'm gonna use Loki and rush!

Another word for gay. Especially prominent expression in South Africa where there is an abundance of people named Odin who are homo. They usually hide their homosexual preferences under long hair and metal band tshirts, but their gay tendencies are so strong they all develop aids by 14.

Guy 2: LOLOLOLOL fucking odins
