In Norse mythology, Hrotti ("Thruster") is a sword from Fafnir's treasure horde. When Sigurd killed the mighty dragon, he and Regin cooked his heart on a spit. Sigurd tasted the blood of the dragon's heart, which granted him the ability to understand the birds. The birds warned him that Regin meant to betray him and take the treasure for himself, so Sigurd killed Regin. He then plundered Fafnir's treasure taking two chests of gold, the sword Hrotti, a golden coat of mail, the helmet Aegishjalmarr, and Regin's sword Ridill ("Swift-Moving"). Regin's sword is also known as Refil ("Serpent") or Rithil depending on the version and translation of the story.

The story of Fafnir's death is told in the Fafnismol (The Ballad of Fafnir), and in the Volsung Saga.
