WARNING: This article contains full spoilers for Loki episode 5
The thrilling fifth episode of Disney Plus show Loki showed the titular character (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) fighting through the void to whoever is behind the TVA. Before that, however, Loki visited the league of Lokis and saw how they were living underground. During this introduction, viewers were gifted a glimpse of Throg – Frog Thor.
Throg appeared in a 2009 Marvel comic book after Thor was turned into the creature by Loki.
The joke was referenced in Loki by showing a frog version of Thor in a jar underground, right next to an abandoned Mjolnir.
This outrageous turn of events had already been detailed in 2017 film Thor: Ragnarok.
During the film, when Thor (Chris Hemsworth) ventured back to Asgard, he found Loki in charge while disguised as Odin (Anthony Hopkins).
Thor arrived just as Loki was watching a dramatic telling of his life story
He witnessed Fake Thor (Luke Hemsworth) acting out the story with Fake Loki (Matt Damon).
Fake Loki said: “I’m sorry about that time I turned you into a frog.” Fake Thor replied: “It was a wonderful joke!”
Loki (Odin) laughed: “It was indeed hilarious!”

In particular, viewers were treated to a glimpse at the infamous Thanoscopter.

While never seen in the MCU, it has now been confirmed to have been owned by a variant version of Thanos.
Viewers also spotted the Guardians of the Galaxy’s spaceship, as well as the helmet of Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll), the villain from Ant-Man.
