In Norse mythology, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf.
Fenrir is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, is a son of Loki, and is foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök (a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), but will in turn be killed by Odin's son Víðarr.
In the Prose Edda, additional information is given about Fenrir, including that, due to the gods' knowledge of prophecies foretelling great trouble from Fenrir and his rapid growth, the gods bound him, and as a result Fenrir bit off the right hand of the god Týr.
Depictions of Fenrir have been identified on various objects, and scholarly theories have been proposed regarding Fenrir's relation to other canine beings in Norse mythology.
Fenrir has been the subject of artistic depictions, and he appears in literature.
