Fandometrics In Depth: Loki
The God of Mischief may be full of tricks, but this post sure isn’t. Read on for some spoiler-free facts and data about Tumblr’s favorite son of Odin and Frigga, and his solo entry in the MCU.
After 10 years and six appearances in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, it’s finally Loki’s time to shine and, maybe, finally get that redemption arc we’ve all been dreaming of. Disney+’s latest addition to their roster of Marvel-centric TV shows is centered around Loki in the events following his brief appearance in Avengers: Endgame. We won’t share too much, but we’re introduced to an entire new cast of characters, including the mysterious and devout agents of the Time Variance Authority, and Loki is forced to reconcile with himself more than once.
This time around, we analyzed engagement data around tags used between the first Loki trailer’s drop on December 10, 2020, and the latest episode of the show (as of writing this post), which aired on July 7, 2021, to calculate its most talked about characters, actors and actresses, and ships.
Those who have strayed from the Sacred Timeline
While many of these characters still remain a mystery, it hasn’t stopped you from loving them immensely and talking about them constantly. Because the MCU still hasn’t changed its habit of naming films and TV shows after the main character, we’re using a strict real name policy for this list. Below are the most tagged characters in Loki, ranked:
Loki Laufeyson | 50.14%
Mobius M. Mobius | 23.82%
Sylvie | 13.4%
Kid Loki | 3.37%
Classic Loki | 2.6%
Alligator Loki | 2.6%
President Loki | 1.92%
Ravonna Renslayer | 0.81%
Boastful Loki | 0.7%
Hunter B-15 | 0.64%
The ones causing chaos behind the scenes
In a twist of fate that surprises exactly no one, Tom Hiddleston remains Tumblr’s favorite member of TH Squared (in this timeline, at least), and tops our list of the most talked about actors in Loki. A few actors also made their MCU debut in the latest Marvel TV entry and quickly rose in the ranks of your hearts. Check out the full breakdown below:
Tom Hiddleston | 76.74%
Owen Wilson | 15.5%
Sophia Di Martino | 5.35%
Wunmi Mosaku | 1.23%
Richard E. Grant | 1.18%
Ships passing in the endless void of space
This cast may be small, but their love for each other is infinite. Below are the top three ships from Loki, ranked:
Lokius (Loki Laufeyson x Mobius M. Mobius) | 88.45%
Sylki (Loki Laufeyson x Sylvie) | 10.74%
Sylkius (Loki Laufeyson x Sylvie x Mobius M. Mobius) | 0.81%
For all time. Always.
