Record of Ragnarok is still going strong since 2017, with electrifying fights and crazy matchups. The stakes for humanity have seemingly never been higher, with their very existence being decided to depend on whether they can defeat actual gods in mortal combat.
The odds seem stacked against them, but the human race is given a fighting chance thanks to Brunhilde’s schemes and her fellow valkyries’ Volund weapons. So far, there have been nine rounds of the potential 13 in the series, with each of these fights in Record of Ragnarok being surprising and intense bouts full of shock and awe.
Every Record of Ragnarok Round: All Fights in Order
While round 9 is over in Record of Ragnarok, there have been some spectacular fights with surprising finishes. Despite all of these humans, or Einherjar, being distinctly mortal, their talents and motivations, along with Volund, have given them a unique edge in each fight.
As you can probably guess, since one side needs to claim 7 victories to win the tournament and even round 10 won’t determine the winning side just yet, humanity has clinched a few wins. We won’t spoil it in this piece, but you’re welcome to check out the list of winners and losers from each round. Listed below is an official Record of Ragnarok fight list

Contestants in Future Record of Ragnarok Fights
Aside from these characters, there are still several combatants on each side who have yet to feature, such as the gods:
For the humans, there are still some mighty challengers remaining, and even some other teased human legends who have yet to factor in:
- Grigori Rasputin
- Michel Nostradamus
- Sakata Kintoki
- Simo Häyhä
Layouts have shifted even since the start of the series. For instance, Buddha went from the gods’ side to that of the Einherjar after they convinced him humanity was worth fighting for. The fights of Record of Ragnarok can often also hinge on who has the more compelling backstory, making the gods more sympathetic than expected.
It’s fun to speculate on who will be pitted against whom, with characters like Simo Häyhä, known for his unmatched marksmanship, being an ideal foe for Loki, the Norse god of mischief. And, of course, Rasputin will be a match to watch closely, given his apparent immortality.
