During the Middle Ages (A.D. 500-1500), fierce warriors called Vikings lived on the Scandinavian Peninsula of northern Europe. The Vikings, a tall people known for their blond hair and blue eyes, were skilled craftsmen and daring seamen. They raided many European nations and explored far out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Around the year A.D. 1000, the Viking Leif Ericson discovered the North American continent. It is believed that the Vikings might have started several little villages at the tip of Newfoundland, an island off Canada's Atlantic coast. Although they did not tell anyone about their discovery, the Vikings were nevertheless probably the second people to discover America.

1. A term which means "northmen", which is what the raiders from Scandinavia were called by British, French, etc. At one time the Vikngs controlled much of the British Isles and western and northern France.

At one time in its history the French were so weak that they were bullied into making a Viking the Duke Of Normandy and letting the Vikings raid and pillage several Eastern French cities unimpeded. The honest Vikings kept to their word and decided not to sack Paris.

The Vikings were also fine shipwrights that build long oar powered boats called "longboats". These ships were long and thin, and despite their appearence they were very seaworthy. Despite popular belief, the Vikings never used longboats for combat, but as a transport.

Under Erik the Red they were the first finders of North America, but they didn't document it and therfore didn't get the credit. It is believed that the Vikings explored as far into North America as Newfoundland(east of Quebec, near Newbrunswick and Prince Eduard Island).

2. Mascot of Minnesota's NFL team. Note this teams is an an insult to the real Vikings.

Warriors of the North, that beat the living fuck out of the christians during the medieval times. Vikings are massive burly bearded men, usually armed wiht swords or axes, that like to drink, fight, and rape christian whores. Weak, modern men are a disgrace of utmost disgust, compared to the mighty vikings.
"Hail Thor!" roared the berzerker Viking as he raised his axe and swung down, chopping a christian's head clean in half, splattering brains all over his blade, arm and face.

1. A verb meaning to take something by force or bully someone into giving you something that rightfully isn't yours. Also could mean using brute force to get your way either with people or inanimate objects such as vending machines or engines i.e. banging on it until it gives up the damn Snickers bar/works. Basically any acttion involving intimidation or force/violence that gains material possessions such as food, cars, women, grapefruits, mufflers, candy, Copenhagen, towns, flying carpets, ninja swords, herpes. Derived from how the Norse and Danish viking generally wrecked people's shit to get stuff they wanted.
2. The word could also be used to describe an action of destruction that deprives anyone from enjoying something, based on the mentality of "If I can't have it, then no one can."
Exp. of use #1: Dude, I was so hungry, I had to viking this candy bar from that nerd.

Exp. of use#2: I know all you guys liked her, but I hate you assholes and that's why I vikinged the shit out of Misty last night. Good luck with that.

Tough warriors that almost took over England, that could kick your ass
Your Mom is a Viking

a viking is pretty much the ultimate fighting machine.
put your damn nijas in broad dalight in hand to hand combat with your average hieght average strength viking, your damn ninja wont have time to contemplate his attack before the viking rips hit thraot out and continues to mual the nijas corpse with its skull

pirates without their swords and guns=jack shit aka pansies

vikings need no weapons whereas the other two do, nijas require darkness and objects to mask their presence to be eficient therefor they would suck in open combat

one viking would gladly rush into battle with a thousand pirates and ninjas and take as many as he could before he died
re-read definition if you require an example of viking
