'''The Incal''' (''L'Incal'') is a sci-fi [[ComicBook comic series]] by writer Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky and artist Creator/{{Moebius}} and is the center-piece of the former's ComicBook/MetabaronsUniverse. The project was born out of, and recycled many concepts from, the two's failed attempt to make a film adaption of Film/{{Dune}}. Despite Jodorowsky having every major event of the comic planned out beforehand, and the series only being 6 volumes long, it took 8 years to complete.

Added DiffLines:

* BeneathSuspicion: One of Difool's greatest assets, and arguably why his teammates keep him around against his will, is that he's the perfect diversion due to how unassuming and slight he is as a character.
* BigBad: The Great Darkness.
* ButtMonkey: John Difool, subject to injuries both comical and horrific.


Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: The Black Incal. While it's used to construct the Shadow Eggs and was originally in the possession of the brutal Tanatah, it's a necessary component to form the complete Incal with its Light twin.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: Outside of Deepo, most of the allies Difool picks up are people who have exploited or tried to have him killed in the past.
* HoneyTrap: How Animah keeps compelling Difool to stay and help the Incal. To his chagrin, he's always aware that he's being played, but is too infatuated with her to refuse.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Attempted by John multiple times.

* MeaningfulName: John DiFool. Yes, his name alludes to the fact that he's kind of a dumbass, but in [[TarotMotifs the Tarot]], [[UsefulNotes/TarotCards the Fool]] is the first of the Major Arcana, and symbolizes chaos, infinite possibility and the beginning of a journey, which are all motifs that apply to John.

* MindScrew: gradually becomes this toward the end of the original series, and pops up from time to time in the prequel and sequels.
* NonHumanSidekick: Deepo; Difool's (eventually) talking "concrete seagull".
* PettingZooPeople: Kill Wolfhead, who resemble a dog despite his name in the English translation, and a few others. The sequel and prequel reveal that they are actually genetically modified humans.

* SpiritualPredecessor: Like [[Film/{{Dune}} its inspiration]], a lot of this series' ideas ended up being reused in other works, most notably ''{{Warhammer 40000}}'' and ''Film/TheFifthElement''.
