Ragnarök is a key element in Norse mythology. It's a series of events, which include an epic battle between Norse gods (for example Odin and Thor) and monsters, like the Midgard Serpent, destruction of civilization by natural disasters and a flood that covers the world with water. Later the world will resurface as new and fertile and the gods that survived meet with the reborn ones. The world will become populated by human survivors. [1]

Tomb Raider Underworld

Norse myth holds that the world will end in the epic battle of Ragnarök, which will result in the death of the gods and monsters and the destruction of civilization. Figuring prominently in this eschatological myth is Jörmungandr, the Midgard Serpent, which is so large that it encircles the entire world on the bottom of the ocean. During Ragnarök, the Midgard Serpent rises up, causing floods and spewing its poison into the air. Thor will use the Mjolnir to kill Jörmungandr but will also die from the serpent's venom.
