WARNING: This article contains full spoilers for Loki Episode 5
The thrilling fifth episode of Disney Plus show Loki featured the titular character (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) battling through the void against whoever is behind the TVA. Before that, however, Loki visited the League of Lokis and saw how they lived underground. During this introduction, viewers got a glimpse of Throg – Frog Thor.
Throg appeared in a 2009 Marvel comic book after Thor was turned into the creature by Loki.
In Loki, the joke was referenced by showing a frog version of Thor in a pot underground, right next to an abandoned Mjolnir.
This outrageous turn of events was already detailed in the 2017 movie Thor: Ragnarok.
During the film, when Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returned to Asgard, he found Loki in charge while disguised as Odin (Anthony Hopkins).

Loki: Throg was hidden next to Mjolnir
Throg, as the green-skinned god of thunder is known, was first introduced in the Thor comic book issue #365.
On the pot Throg is holding in Loki, there is a sticker that reads T365 (Thor, 365).
The issue in question saw the Mighty Thor take on another group of frogs with its electricity powers and a small Mjolnir.
Of course, this isn’t the first prank the impostor has played on Thor over the years.
