''Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire'' (properly [[HeavyMetalUmlaut "Kröd Mändoon," not "Krod Mandoon."]]) is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what you think it's about.]] Yes, TheHero is named Kröd Mändoon, and he has a [[ShapedLikeItself flaming sword of fire.]] Creator, developer, and writer Peter Knight said that its humour is influenced by ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''Series/GetSmart'', and ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''. It aired in 2009. The series is mostly a parody of HeroicFantasy. The basic plot is that Kröd is the leader of a band of [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified good rebels]] fighting against an evil dictator named Dongalor. Yet within that simple premise is a bunch of subplots and character-driven humor. ---- !!''Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire'' provides examples of: * ActionGirl: Aneka * BritishBrevity * BuryYourGays: General Arcadius dies saving Kröd in the first episode not long after discovering his sexuality. ** In one episode the heroes are seduced by four unholy succubi, three women plus one gay man for Bruce. Guess which one of them dies first. * CatchPhrase: "Daggers!" * ComedicSociopathy: Dongalor again. * TheChosenOne: The Golden One, chosen to sound less cliched than "the chosen one." * TheChosenZero: Only the titular character and his TrueCompanions can light the resistance's beacon... * CowardlySidekick: Zezelryk * DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: The Flaming Sword of Fire. * DepravedBisexual: Cy The Biclops. He captures Kröd and co. with the specific intent of "sexing and eating" them. He also talks about how he's been such a manwhore since his breakup with Lisa. ** And Chad * TheEmpire * EroticEating: Aneka, with an ''entire'' banana. And, as with everything in the series, kicked UpToEleven in parody, ending with Longshaft "motorboating" a pair of cantaloupes and Aneka attempting to drink from a coconut two feet above her face and [[CheerfulChild grinn]][[FetishRetardant ing]]. * EthnicMagician: Zezelry. * EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Kröd and Dongalor went to "the academy" together. * FauxAffablyEvil: Dongalor * FlamingSword: [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Of Fire]]. ** Achieved practically rather than with CGI. * GagPenis: Loquasto. When the three men bust out some protection for getting it on with the succubi, Loquasto's is ''way'' longer than the other two, prompting this comment from Bruce. -->''Bruce'': I guess the saying is true. Once you go grobble, you hobble. * GoshDangItToHeck: "Daggers!" * HeavyMetalUmlaut: ''Two'' of them. * IdiotHero: Kröd. * IncurableCoughOfDeath: Dongalor's love interest during the Bi-clops episode. Complete with BloodFromTheMouth. Dongalor calls her (and her grave marker reads) the Pretty girl From The Village With the Big Cans and the "Hump-Me" Eyes. In the credits she's simply called Cute Girl, which is also on her grave marker. * IneptMage: Zezelryk. * InteractiveNarrator: Played with: At the end of the pilot, when Dongalor and Barnabus are discussing the prophecy, and the narrator comments that it is Kröd's destiny. --> '''Dongalor:''' I see... ''(looks around)'' ...Was that you, Barnabus? * KickTheDog[=/=]MoodWhiplash: After a boy's (scripted) sad story doesn't make the pagan women cry, Dongalor orders that the boy to be thrown off a bridge, and for his dog to be used as a mop. * LaResistance * LostTechnology: In the form of Lost Magic: The Eye of Gulga Grymna. * TheLoad: Bruce, Loquasto and Zezelryk all trade this one off because all do have moments of usefulness. Zezelryk is skilled with potions (and now has a nifty magic item), Loquasto is strong and has a superior sense of smell and in the last episode Bruce proved he can fight well when he has to. * LukeIAmYourFather: Spoofed in the final episode of Season 1-As it is, Dongalor is Kröd's brother...in law. He isn't even married to Kröd's sister anymore! * MeaningfulName: Kröd's name is meaningful if you spell it backwards. ** Horst Draper (Who lays with horses). * MisterSeahorse: Loquasto, Zezelryk and (noticeably) Bruce, during "Succubi: The Dawn's Early Light", [[spoiler: with the spawn of the titular Succubi (and token Incubus, in Bruce's case)]]. * TheMole: [[spoiler: Grimshank playing Double Agent. He planned to let Dongalor set off the Eye, but re-aim it at Dongalor's castle.]] * MrFanservice: Kröd * MsFanservice: Aneka, which Kröd constantly [[LampshadeHanging hangs a]] [[IncrediblyLamePun lantern]] on. * MyFriendsAndZoidberg: --> These are my best friends in the world! And Bruce! * NiceJobBreakingItHero: Congrats, Kröd. You just [[spoiler: gave the thing that'll power the DoomsdayDevice to TheMole!]] * NinetiesAdventureShow: It's a parody of the fantasy versions of this. * NoRespectGuy: Kröd. * NotSoStoic: Even though pagan women aren't supposed to cry, [[spoiler: Aneka does cry when TheMole tells her that Kröd and his gang are dead]]. This is particularly unfortunate as [[spoiler: Dongalor needs a pagan woman's tears to fuel his weapon]]. * OnlySaneMan: Kröd as noted above but also Barnabas in relation to Dongalor. * PettingZooPeople: Loquasto, specifically PigMan * PrecisionFStrike: Dongalor, when the foppish weapons inspector prances in. * ReallyGetsAround: Aneka * RedHerringMole: [[spoiler: Grimshank]] * SecretOtherFamily: The bartender. * ServileSnarker: Barnabas, to a point. * ShapedLikeItself: The Flaming Sword of Fire! * SheFu: Aneka does this a lot, while giving free {{Panty Shot}}s ([[VaporWear when she's wearing them]]) to everyone looking. * ShirtlessScene: Kröd on the 1st episode! * SissyVillain: Dongalor, even if he is technically straight. * TheStoic: Full-blooded pagan women (almost) never cry - torturing them, showing them a sad play, and even chopping onions in front of their faces has no effect. * {{Stripperiffic}}: Aneka again, which Kröd [[HoldYourHippogriffs hangs a lantern]] on. * SuddenlySexuality: The General, which Kröd also hangs a lantern on. * TemptingFate: "It'll take more than an arrow to kill the greatest general who ever lived!" Yep, it did. He was doing well up until the ballista. ** The throwing axe bouncing off his head didn't help much either. * TooSoon: [[invoked]]Dongalor has a village maiden's father killed in front of her and then makes a joke about how he won't have to ask for his permission to date her. She looks at him distraught, to which he responds "Too soon?" * VulgarHumor: ** The Festival of Three Hundred Moons. It's exactly what you think it's about. ** Kröd's rival for Aneka's affections is named ''Longshaft''. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything? ** Don't forget that Dongalor's ArtifactOfDoom looks like nothing so much as a ''gigantic anus''. *** The power of which is weaponized hemmhorhoids, since it becomes a Flaming Eye of Death once you stick a certain object [[spoiler: merely a giant gemstone]] into it. ----

nope, that trope has a VERY, VERY TIGHT definition, the chick must be female, it must be 4 guys and a girl, it's for the dynamic in 70's cartoons, mainly.
* FiveManBand: In order: ** TheHero: Kröd (OnlySaneMan. Not a ''bright'' man, but a sane one.) ** TheLancer: Aneka (ActionGirl) ** TheBigGuy: Loquasto (DumbMuscle) ** TheSmartGuy: Zezelryk *** Nominally, at best. He's as dumb as the rest of them. ** TheChick: Bruce (CampGay)

* TooSoon: Dongalor has a village maiden's father killed in front of her and then makes a joke about how he won't have to ask for his permission to date her. She looks at him distraught, to which he responds "Too soon?"
