In Norse mythology, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder are the goats who pull Thor's chariot, and first appeared in Marvel Comics canon in Thor #339 and have been featured periodically. They both can be reborn if eaten unless one of their bones are broken, and are superhumanly strong. The goats are also capable of traveling between the Ten Realms and both run and fly at fly at high speed.
