'''''Lanfeust de Troy''''' is a French heroic-fantasy comic series by Arleston and Tarquin, published by Soleil Productions. It features the eponymous hero Lanfeust in the world of Troy, and his efforts to save said world from total dominion by an evil army. The main feature of this series is that each inhabitant has a single magical power, be it useful or useless (melting metal, boiling/freezing water, teleporting, farting from the ears...), but sometimes, one person can have the ultimate power, that consists of every single power ever. This is the case for Lanfeust, a young blacksmith who, while mending the sword of a passing aristocrat, discovers that touching the sword's pommel grants him the ultimate power.

The series has also been RecycledInSpace (''Lanfeust des Étoiles''), rewritten as a manga (''Lanfeust Quest''), and as SpinoffBabies (''Gnomes de Troy''). And recently, given a sequel, in the form of ''Lanfeust Odyssey''... [[CashCowFranchise Annnnnnnd another series]] has just come out: ''Cixi de Troy''. This one focuses on Cixi from when she leaves the main band to when we meet with her again. There is also a prequel series of sorts, involving the adventures of Hebus's grandfather Tetram, his adoptive human daughter Waha, and her would-be boyfriend Profy (''Trolls de Troy'').
----
!!''Lanfeust'' provides examples of:

* AfraidOfNeedles: Hébus. He considers them to be vicious and underhanded.
* AffectionateParody: Of {{Fantasy}} in ''Lanfeust De Troy'', of SpaceOpera in ''Lanfeust Des Etoiles''.
* AGodAmI: How Thanos reacts to the ultimate power.
* AllTrollsAreDifferent: Huge, anthropophagist, fur-covered humanoids with SuperStrength and a violent aversion to water. (It might make them clean and thus alienate their flies.) They can be enchanted by a sage, turning them into obedient servants, but DON'T let them get drunk.
** Trolls actually developed a highly advanced culture built around [[HeroicComedicSociopath Heroic sociopathy]]: they can perfectly function in civilized human society, but unless they [[MoralityPet take a fancy to some of the locals]], they may kill people at random [[ForTheEvulz to pass time]].
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: Lanfeust.]]
* BettyAndVeronica: C'ian and Cixi.
* BigBad: Baron Averroes, [[spoiler: who then turns out to be Thanos]].
* BigEater: The trolls. At one point, it is said they can eat or drink ''anything'' except [[WeaksauceWeakness water]] (it might make them CLEAN!). A troll tries to eat something and it ''doesn't'' get digested properly it's a major plot point.
** Trolls will eat AnythingThatMoves and drink everything that doesn't. It's not that they're evil, they're just very hungry.
* TheBlacksmith: Lanfeust, whose power is to melt metal.
* BlessedWithSuck: Some people have useless or ridiculous powers like making colorful farts.
* BloodlessCarnage: Completely and utterly averted. Whenever there's a carnage scene, or pretty much almost any death, expect to see liters of blood covering the place or gushing out of people's and creatures' bodies.
* BoisterousBruiser: Trolls, every last one of them.
* CashCowFranchise
* CatapultToGlory
* CharmPerson: A common spell used to make trolls very strong servants. Problem is, it doesn't stand up to alcohol...
** The basic version of the spell does not resist alcohol: a stronger enchantment can hold even if the troll drowns himself in booze, but by strongly diminishing their savagery, which weakens them. Granted, considering [[OneManArmy what trolls are]], most of the time, it's not a problem.
* TheChosenOne: Lanfeust, as well as Thanos.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Both C'ian and Cixi when Lanfeust is next to another girl. The latter is rather Hypocrite because she's very flirting with other men. According to her [[DoubleStandard for girls it's just sexual but boys are more romantic and it's cheating]].
* DoingInTheWizard: In the sequel ''Lanfeust des Etoiles'', the magic power of the inhabitants of Troy is retconned as PsychicPowers.
* DoomedByCanon: In her spin-off series, Cixi gets pregnant with Thanos' child never mentionned in the main series. [[ConvenientMiscarriage You guess what happens next...]]
* TheDragon: Thanos appears to be this to Averroes, until [[spoiler: we learn that they're the same guy.]]
** Thanos become this to Prince Luhu in LAnfeust of the Stars.
* DropTheHammer: Most, if not all of the trolls use blunt weaponry.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Thanos doesn't appear at all in the first album. The only antagonists are random brigands. Also, Cixi was more immature.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When Venerable Fuquatou discovers that the courtesan blackmailing him is looking for the mutant siren "sisters" of Waha in order to use them in her brothels, he kicks her out of the dragon they're flying on.
* EveryoneIsASuper: it's close to ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' in comic form. Everyone on the world of Troy has the potential for magic power, enabled by people who train as sages at a WizardingSchool. Sages learn some charms and spells at school and "turn off" their own powers to allow people within a certain range to use theirs. They are valuable resources; for example, when trolls attack caravans, they often focus on the sages. There are also a few nations with cultural differences in how magic manifests.
** [[{{Wuxia}} Darshanites]], [[UnfortunateImplications rather than having individual powers]], subconsciously pool their power to create gods that intercede in daily life on that continent.
** The Baronies are opposed to magic for [[BurnTheWitch cultural]] [[TheDungAges reasons]] and don't allow sages among them. It's unclear whether people from there would discover their individual talents if they spent enough time in foreign lands, or whether people born there can't have magic powers at all, or what.
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Troy's wildlife is incredibly diverse and inventive in the ways it tries to eat you. And let's not go into the trolls...
* EyeScream: Thanos puts out Lanfeust's eyes (with an ivory blade, when he melts the metal one).
* {{Fanservice}}: Cixi (among others, she appears nude in one scene, to C'ian's anger, Lanfeust's astonishment, and to [[ViewersAreHorny our great delight]].
** ''Cixi De Troy'' seems to run on this. The FIRST volume gives us a HotAmazonBrigade who are big believers in GirlOnGirlIsHot and{{Stripperiffic}} outfits.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Lanfeust
** TheLancer: Cixi (as the one who [[spoiler:leaves them, apparently defects to the evil side, but actually fight from the inside.]]
** TheBigGuy: Hébus
** TheSmartGuy: Nicolède
** TheChick: C'ian
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: '''Shlik'''äh, [[ADateWithRosiePalms Goddess of Pleasure]]. Confirmed by WordOfGod no less.
* GodivaHair: Described as a "genetic trait" of mermaids in ''Trolls de Troy'', and even applies if they're turned upside-down.
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: the Darshanide Gods need believers to exist. The first time the heroes visit the divine court, they witness the goddess [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_Renaud Lynrenö]] fading into nothingness as her last believer dies.
* HappyRain: "There it is, your ET shower!" (though the pun unfortunately doesn't work in English).
* HatesBaths: All trolls.
** They hate to ''take'' baths, but love to drink bathwater: as Hebus explains when he drinks C'ian and Cixi's bathwater, "It's like stew: when you're not allowed to eat the meat, you can still drink the broth."
* IdenticalGrandson: or identical niece. Cian's daughter, Cixi shares her aunt's name, appearance and personality.
* ImAHumanitarian: Trolls consider human flesh a delicacy.
* InterspeciesRomance: well, not exactly ''romance'' per se, but one of the manuals give this as an explanation for the perpetual presence of darshanide trolls around [[ReallyGetsAround Shlikäh, the Goddess of Pleasure]]. Then comes the explanation of why she saved Hébus and perpetually "cured" him of his appetite for human flesh: she started finding the darshanide trolls boring and a bit small and wanted to try a regular troll. She was [[BiggerIsBetterInBed thoroughly satisfied]], though [[CrowningMomentOfFunny she couldn't sit for three days afterwards]].
** Another example, from the prequel series: Pröfy is actually half-troll. His mother, a full troll, once caught a human nobleman but felt more lusty than hungry at the time... Several days later, the man eventually escaped with his life. And several broken bones. And no clothes whatsoever.
* InThatOrder: The [[ComicBook/BarbeRouge Redbeard]] knockoffs have trouble with RapePillageAndBurn.
-->"We rob'em, burn'em and rape'em, right cap'n?"\\
"Noooo, that's what you did ''last'' time!"\\
"Oh yeah, that wasn't much fun, especially towards the end."
* KatanasAreJustBetter: After he loses his sword, Lanfeust forges himself a new one and gives it the shape of a katana. Granted, at the time they're in the [[{{Wutai}} knockoff of China/Japan/Every Asian country related trope you can think of]].
** SubvertedTrope: when he sees the katanas forged by the ''personal smith of the emperor'', he describes them as "cute toys", breaks in half one of the very obviously expensive swords in front of the shocked shop clerk, before forging an Eckmülian longsword for himself which only looks superficially like a Darshanide blade.
* MacGuffin: The fragment of the Magohamoth's horn. [[spoiler: It gives Lanfeust and Thanos the ultimate power]].
* MeaningfulName: Thanos (from Thanatos, Death in Greek mythology).
** Also, Ci'an and Cixi are the names of the last two Dowager Empresses of China.
*** And Cixi's name definitely sounds like her greatest attribute.
* MundaneUtility: Depending on the power you get, it pretty much determines your job. Lanfeust, who can melt metal, is a blacksmith, one girl whose power is to make people thirsty works in a tavern.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Used as mounts, they come in various shapes and forms, some being individual mounts and other being large enough to serve as airplanes.
* PandaingToTheAudience: Darshanide trolls (white-furred, with black spots over the eyes), which are a subversion of how this trope usually works, because they're at least as savage and brutal as regular trolls, although they are smaller.
* PhysicalGod: The Darshanide gods.
* {{Pirate}}: Thanos's occupation when we first hear of him.
** As well as [[SpacePirates space pirates]] in ''Lanfeust Des Etoiles''.
** Cixi runs into (and joins) a band of man-hating female pirates.
* PirateGirl: Cixi runs into (and joins) a band of man-hating female pirates.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Trolls dislike "subtlety". Given their SuperStrength and NighInvulnerability, they solve most problems by charging at it/swinging blunt objects at it/eating it. Human powers, given their unpredictability, are pretty much the only reason humans have survived, see EverythingTryingToKillYou.
* PunnyName: Every troll's name is such that, if you add "troll" to the front or end, you get a word or phrase; Hébus gives Trolleybus, Haïgwépa for Highway Patrol. Some other characters, like the Darshanide ambassador, also count, but it's [[AllThereInTheManual hard to figure out]].
** Some? More like almost everybody. I mean, the BigBad of ''Lanfeust des Etoiles'' is named after the mascot of a cookie brand, for crying out loud!
** Also, mentioned once in the book and [[AllThereInTheManual another time in the manual]], the Darshanide goddess of labyrinths is [[Franchise/TombRaider Larakröft]]
* ShoutOut: Waaaaaaaay too many to count: to previous works of the authors, TV series, video games, etc.
** {{Zorro}} characters show up once or twice.
*** Cixi did spend an episode as a black-clad masked vigilante riding a... flying... bat... thing... named Tornado.
*** Tornado's actually referred to as a dragon at some point (see OurDragonsAreDifferent).
** [[Franchise/TombRaider Larakröft]], Darshanide Goddess of Labyrinths, comes to mind.
* RecycledInSpace: Lanfeust of the Stars.
* SecondLove: Cixi to Lanfeust and Or-Azur to Ci'an.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The series is pretty cynical, people die, messily, and yet remains quite funny.
** Which is notable because unlike many examples, it starts out that way. The [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler first issue prominently features]] a MilesGloriosus, speculation about the PowerPerversionPotential of Lanfeust's abilities, Lanfeust's leg getting chewed off by a HordeOfAlienLocusts, Lanfeust personally killing hundreds of bandit {{Mook}}s, and more, equally funny and horrific, sometimes on the same page.
* StableTimeLoop: In Lanfeust of the Stars we learned [[spoiler: Lanfeust gave the absolute power to the Magohamoth in the past and the latter gave him back at the end of the first series.]]
* SuddenlySexuality: In the main series, Cixi has no interest in anyone but men, but Cixi of Troy portates her as [[BiTheWay Bissexual.]]
* TinTyrant: Averroes never removes his armor or face-concealing helm, [[spoiler: for a good reason: he's Thanos]].
* TookALevelInBadass : OMG Cixi.
* TrappedInThePast: Fourth issue in Lanfeust of the Stars.
* {{Troperiffic}}: Uses, and occasionally deconstructs, a great many HighFantasy tropes.
* WhamEpisode: In Lanfeust Odyssey, [[spoiler:a possessed Lanfeust kills Nicolede in full view of everyone in Eckmul]].
** Before that, in ''Lanfeust of the stars'', Lanfeust and Swiip end up [[spoiler:eighteen years in the future]]. It is never fixed, meaning Lanfeust [[spoiler:has now the same age as his son, leading Cixi to eventually break up with him since she's spent the years making a name for herself in the future]].
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Thanos.
