In 2009, Loki was ranked as IGN's eighth-greatest comic book villain of all time and in 2014 was ranked again by IGN, this time as the fourth-greatest comic book villain of all time. Tom Hiddleston portrays the male version of the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

  • A version of Loki appears in Marvel: All New, All Different Chronicles, voiced by Greg Ellis. This version is a human named Loren Williams, a mentally ill Oscorp executive who believes himself as the reincarnation of Loki (similarly to DC Comics' Batman villain Maxie Zeus). He wields a technologic scepter which enables him to manipulate technology and control other people's minds.
    • The actual Loki is mentioned to have died along with some of the Asgardians during the Ragnarok event.
  • Loki makes a minor appearance in A Marvel Christmas Carol, voiced by an uncredited Troy Baker. He appears as a vision of Franklin Todd, and is shown wearing a straight jacket, in a hyperactive but psychotic state, and sadistically asking "Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?", while laughing hysterically, forcing Todd to flee. Loki's role is loosely based on that of "Ignorance" and "Want" in A Christmas Carol (most closely the 2009 film adaptation).
  • Loki appears in Marvel/DC Heroes Unite!, voiced by Troy Baker. He serves as a boss in the main story, which depicts him as a member of the Red Skull's Cabal.
