Gullinbursti can plow the earth with his tusks and speed across earth, sea and sky faster than any bird or horse. Frey or other gods could ride Gullinbursti or hitch him to a chariot.
Gullinbursti's golden bristles shed light even in the darkest gloom. This light can dispel illusions (at least those of the Trolls) and can painfully drive off light-sensitive beings such as a trolls.
Gullinbursti is a large golden boar used by the Aesir Frey as transportation. Gullinbursti was a gift from Odin.
Gullinbursti was fashioned by the dwarves Brokk and Eitri as one of the three gifts they presented to Odin to surpass that of his spear Gugnir. Despite the efforts to distract Brokk via tickling in the form of a butterfly, Gullinbursti leapt form their hearth as they crafted it, and they had to leash it to hold it down. They gave it to Odin along with the gold armband Draupnir, and the hammer Mjolnir. Odin vowed to hold the golden boar in trust for all the gods.
*** RAVEN BANNER ***
To aid Greyval Grimson in his quest to recover the Raven Banner (which had been stolen by Rock Trolls while Greyval was shirking his responsabilities), Odin dispatched Gullinbursti to the caverns of the Norns, below Yggdrasil.
After Greyval chose the Norn's option of rescuing his bride, Sygnet, who had been captured by the trolls, they sent Greyval to Gullinbursti. With his ally Oddbrand Otter, Greyval climbed atop Gullinbursti, who flew them to the kingdom of the trolls where they found the Storm Giant Snorth guarding the cave in which Sygnet was being held. Gullinbursti swooped down for Greyval to clash swords with Snorth, then, dodging boulders hurled by trolls, brought Greyval in for another strike, in which Greyval decapitated Snorth.
(Mythology) -- Gullinbursti was given to Frey to pull his chariot.
