Trivia

  • "Idunn" is a deliberate mistranslation of the Japanese name, Izuna. The latter refers to fairly obscure Japanese lore related to Mount Iizuna, while Iðunn is a Norse goddess associated with beauty, somewhat more in-keeping with the theme of the Wing Diver's other weapon names. It does mean that the weapon's description, saying it was named after its Japanese designer, does not really make sense anymore.
