The comic is [[{{Animesque}} in a Japanese style]], though drawn by Canadian artists. The storyline ranges from deadly serious to absurd, often on the same page, and has several arcs that are starting to come together. It's liberally sprinkled with pop culture and anime references, with quite a bit of very original humour. The artwork, especially in the early comics, is a bit inconsistent, so don't be put off by the first comics being mainly in black-and-white. Colour and animation are used for the more important scenes.

* IronicName: Most of the royal family of Stalashen has these. King Sensible and Queen Prudence come up with rather foolish plans, and Prince Badass is brave, but rather sickly.

* EdibleThemeNaming: Pretty much all characters are named after things you can eat, mostly fruits and other grown edibles for humans and dragonslayers, and desserts for elves.

* TransformationTrinket: There exist special objects called dragon orbs. [[spoiler:All half-dragons are innately linked to one and can switch to their dragon form by fusing with theirs. Count Baklava, an elf, somehow managed to acquire one and was able to fuse with it to become a dragon himself.]]

[[spoiler:All half-dragons are innately linked to one [[spoiler:Dragons have the power of VoluntaryShapeshifting and can switch assume the form of any creature they have tasted the blood of. However, this requires a great deal of concentration to maintain. To ease this, dragons will use a ritual to create a dragon orb. The dragon orb contains a tiny fragment of their soul, as well as all the extra mass and magic of their true forms, allowing them to remain shapeshifted as long as they need to. They can return to their dragon true form by fusing back with theirs.their orb. Count Baklava, an elf, somehow managed to acquire one and was able to fuse with it to become a dragon himself.]]]]

** When Cherry summons a bunch of rabbits, one of them is wielding a switch blade, which is presumably a reference to Bunbun of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''.

* CallingYourAttacks: The dragonslayers do it because modern "dragon slaying" is largely just for show, and they want to make sure their "opponent" is ready for it, but it is hardly limited to them and is a fairly common trait. Steen Dragonsbane {{Lampshade}}s how inefficient it is that dragonslayers tend to advertise their every move.
