In Norse mythology, Róta is a valkyrie. Róta is attested in chapter 36 of the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning, where she is mentioned alongside the valkyries Gunnr and Skuld, and the three are described as "always [riding] to choose who shall be slain and to govern the killings." Otherwise, Róta appears in two kennings, one by Egill Skallagrímsson and one by Hallfreðr vandræðaskáld. Theories have been proposed about the possible appearance of Róta in Gesta Danorum and the meaning of her name.
- In legend, Rota is a Chooser a the Slain, where like Gunnr and Skuld, she oversees judgement of the fallen, making sure that the worthy enter Vahalla and Hel doesn't overflow with souls.
- Rota's grab moves bypass Kratos' Spartan Rage super armor and drain the bar quickly should said attack make contact. Because she uses this as her main combat strategy, relying on Spartan Rage is I'll advised against her.
- Rota's repeated plummeting grab attack has a faster rhythm ￼than Gondul.
