This article is about the Hero, The Lost Vikings. For the franchise, see The Lost Vikings (franchise).


The Lost Vikings are a group of three melee specialist heroes from the The Lost Vikings universe.[1][2] Erik, Baleog, and Olaf are back! While they briefly considered retirement after defeating the emperor Tomator, there were only so many polar bears they could wrestle before falling into a Nexus portal seemed like a solid life decision.

The Lost Vikings are three Heroes in one. They can focus their efforts or split up to cover more ground.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Lost Vikings (franchise) This section concerns content exclusive to the The Lost Vikings universe.

Erik, Baleog, and Olaf lived joyous and fruitful Viking lives until one day they were captured by Tomator, emperor of the Alien Croutonian Empire, for his inter-galactic Arena of Death. Tomator’s ship malfunctions, however, and the Viking brothers were able to escape through the airlock of the spaceship. Unfortunately, escaping sent them through a time rift in which they traversed bizarre locations in order to find their way home. Eventually, the Viking brothers do make their way home through time.[3]

After escaping from Tomator, Erik the Swift, Olaf the Stout, and Baleog the Fierce have lived joyous and fruitful Viking lives. Then one day, after returning home from a fishing trip, the Vikings get captured by Tomator again. Tomator then calls upon a robotic guard to send them into the Arena, which falls short when a system failure happens. During the blackout, the three Vikings dismantle the robot piece by piece and wear its parts on their bodies, granting them new abilities. The three Vikings are then accidentally sent through time once again. Equipped with the new robotic gear, Erik, Olaf, and Baleog must journey through each level to find their way back home. Along the way, they befriend a werewolf named Fang and a dragon named Scorch, both of whom assist them in their quest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Lost Vikings are a unique and very complex Specialist, as they are, essentially, three Heroes in one. The player controls each Viking individually, with each one having their own characteristics that must be taken in account. Because of this, their primary function is to split-push and generate meaningful impact on the battlefield throughout multiple locations. This impact primarily consists of soaking experience from minion deaths in multiple lanes simultaneously creating potential for a massive team level advantage.

Managing three individual characters with relatively small health pools and lack of escape does provide The Lost Vikings players a challenging high-risk high-reward play style. Overall, the Lost Vikings are challenging to use as they require a high level of macro- and micromanagement.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Large experience gains through soaking multiple lanes
  • Forces opponents into trading lane presence, minion experience, and structures for objectives due to Vikings multiple lane pressure
  • Excellent at clearing and maintaining control of Mercenary Camps

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Relatively difficult to play with a very steep learning curve
  • Each Viking has an especially low health pool, allowing them to be easily picked off
  • Contribute very little to teamfights
  • Requires constant map awareness, and a very thorough understanding of each battleground and its particular objective mechanics
  • Incredibly dependent on team communication
