There's all kinds of hidden dialog to the game if the Vikings are doing poorly. After being defeated constantly on a level, the Vikings will start talking about how difficult it is, insulting the player and even consulting Norse gods for additional inspiration.

References to the game

In World of Warcraft, there is a dungeon called "Uldaman" where the three vikings appear as NPCs (non-playable characters), related to a quest called "The Lost Dwarves".
