Classic Loki

You see an old man in the classic green costume, that is none other than Richard E. Grant. He is referred to as ‘Classic Loki’ because in the credits this character was mentioned with this name only. 

The design of the Classic Loki’s costume in Loki Episode 4 Post Credit Scene is inspired by a 60s Marvel comic book. It was designed by Jack Kirby along with Stan Lee and Larry Lieber.

This Classic Loki was more of the Villian holding a deep grudge against his brother, Thor. It was because of this character’s evil plotting that he came to be known as the God of Evil. 

Child Loki

As you might already know, Loki doesn’t really stay dead when killed. Its obvious result is Child Loki. But How??

Loki died fighting alongside Thor and the other Avengers. (Rarest Moment of Loki’s Heroism). But you cannot expect the God of Mischief to be that stupid. Loki somehow managed to manipulate Hela for removing his name from the Book of Hel. It is because of this only that he is reincarnated as the Child Loki.

This kid lived in Paris and is named “Serrure”, which means Lock in French. He has absolutely no memories of his previous life and is actually a Hero character. The alligator it holds (that has Loki horns) is also Loki, but we will come to that later. Child Loki comes to know about what an evil real Loki was, so he keeps the spirit of real Loki as the alligator. It is to keep reminding himself not to be like the evil Loki.

Boastful Loki

You see a big black man in the Loki Episode 4 Post Credit Scene that has a hammer in his hand. This character is also from the MCU comics and has the same quirks about it. Boastful Loki is seen with a hammer but is it Mjolnir? No one knows about it, but this Loki is definitely very ‘boastful’ about it.

But the hammer looks definitely, Thor-like. So maybe this version of Loki resembles Thor in some way. Also, Loki has lifted Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, in some instances. So it is possible that ‘Boastful Loki’ would do the same. 

Alligator Loki

I know it sounds totally weird, but among all these different variants of Loki, there is also an animal version. Let’s not forget that the Trickster God can shapeshift and transform into any being. Even an alligator. It is not surprising because Loki became a female horse in the real Norse mythology. He turned into an alligator, God knows why, and got stuck.

Note that there is no definite proof of the animal being an alligator, it can be a crocodile. But what seems from the glimpse of Loki Episode 4 Post Credit Scene, it looks more like an alligator.
