Later in the animated television version of the series, Ragnarok's out-of-control soul wavelength is cleansed by a character named Maka, and their interaction reduces the danger of his turning against his wielder. In the manga, the innocent souls that Ragnarok consumes are instead confiscated by death.

His initial appearance is that of a large muscular figure emerging from Crona's back. As an inhuman weapon, Ragnarok initially merges with Crona's blood. His face is shaped as a large egg with no visible mouth, dominated by a white X. After being cleansed of the souls he consumes, his appearance becomes much smaller and less intimidating, and his muscles become much less defined.

Ragnarok's relationship with Crona, his wielder, can be compared to that of a tempestuous and somewhat violent pair of siblings.
