[[redirect:Webcomic/LegendOfMaxx]]''The Legend of Maxx'' is a comedic webcomic based on the video game ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}''. It follows the adventures of the highly persistent IdiotHero Maxx, the under-qualified "chosen one" of half a dozen different prophecies, and his trusty guide Cyril as they meet a cast of colorful characters, including a {{Jerkass}} Dryad named June, a kind-hearted nurse named Hannah, an ale-making fairy named Aley, and the long-suffering Arms Dealer Tyrone.

The comic can be found [[http://legendofmaxx.com/ here]].

----
!!''The Legend of Maxx'' provides examples of:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: [[http://legendofmaxx.com/archives/1079 Maxx crafted a robe for Cyril, which he dub "pyjamas".]] Even [[CynicalMentor June]] smirked at that.
* {{Adorkable}}: Cyril and Skelerina.
* AlphabeticalThemeNaming: The Naiads' names all start with "X" (Xylan, Xane, Xyvareth...).
* ArtEvolution: At the beginning of the comic, the author was simply editing screenshots, to the point where he actually had to goat the Guide into where he wanted him to be in order to make a specific slide. However, if you compare that with pages like [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=861 this one,]] he's definitely gotten way better.
* AuthorAvatar: Jesse [=McMinn=] (the comic's creator) is a recurring character in the series, mostly just to announce new stuff or during the interview {{Intermission}}.
* AxCrazy: Xane. Kinda obvious when his nickname is [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "The Maniac"]] or described as "one part crazy, two parts insane." Before this is even mentioned it's heavily implied due to the fact that he threatens to or kills people incredibly often, cracking a [[SlasherSmile vicious grin]] while doing so.
* BackToBackBadasses: Maxx and June [[http://legendofmaxx.com/comics/2013-07-02-Comic-267.png when defeating the jungle cave hornets]].
* BeatPanel: After June mentions that both her parents died, Maxx says in relief that he don't have to introduce himself to any of June's family members if he were to date her. The gang's reaction to such a comment is a 12-panel beat.
* BigBad: Xylan at the moment, since Xane is taking orders from him.
* BraidsOfAction: Xane's single super long braid is this. It's [[RapunzelHair so long that he wears it around his neck]] like a ScarfOfAsskicking.
* ButtMonkey: Tyrone the Arms Dealer, nearly every strip he appears in, he dies.
* CannotSpitItOut: Cyril.
-->'''[[AuthorAvatar Jesse]]:''' Can you express your true thoughts about Hannah to us without blushing?\\
''[beat]''\\
'''Cyril:''' ''[blushing]'' No.
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:It's becoming increasingly apparent that the Demon Altar Maxx and Cyril found in their earliest adventures will become important once Maxx has all of the required swords to make the SwordOfPlotAdvancement.]]
* CityGuards:
** The two guards of the Dryad home, Maple and Poa, are the only two guards seen. They have no other job than this.
** The Demolitionist and Merchant are appointed to this role for Maxx's village.
* CombatMedic: Hannah the Nurse has picked up some pretty good axe and bow techniques.
* CoolMask: The Angels wear them. This seems to be a nod to a line in the old testament from God to Moses: "you cannot see my face; for man shall not see me and live". Remiel jokes that if a mortal sees an angel's face it would cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, before offering to take if off, but Cyril declines
* CrazyEnoughToWork: The Hellboat, as designed by Sophia and Maxx, is this according to June. She argues that a conventional, ''normal'' boat would have to deal with conventional, normal problems at sea. With the Hellboat, all they have to concern themselves with is to give the laws of physics, reality and common sense the slip, and they'll be golden.
* DeadpanSnarker: June, [[StealthPun by nature]]. Cyril has his moments, too.
* TheDitz: Maxx.
* DrowningMySorrows: Maxx does this after Cyril's first death, drinking ale and singing on top of Cyril's grave.
* EitherWorldDominationOrSomethingAboutBananas: Maxx is, according to prophecy, either meant to save the world, destroy it, or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking is a bowl of two goldfish]]. Time will tell which one is right.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Maxx's Guide isn't given a name for 129 strips after introducing him. Justified in the case of Aley, who was named by Maxx.
* ExpressiveMask: The hood of Xylan's cape is known to form angry eyebrows.
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:Maxx makes Xylan think he is defecting to the Naiad's side, but he only does it to be close enough to stab him in the chest and get [[CoolSword Muramasa]].]]
* FunWithAcronyms: Parodied. J.o.N.A.S. is an acronym for Jonas.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Xane can project a veneer of friendliness, but it's obvious he's very unhinged. Something [[YouHaveFailedMe Grog]] and [[KickTheDog Cyril]] found out the hard way.
* GeniusDitz: Sophia. On one hand, she's smart enough to design a cart that can move at very high speeds, but on the other, she's ditzy enough to not include a way to steer it.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Xyvareth, considering that he was [[EvilOverlord king of the Naiads]] and his actions kickstarted the plot in the present day.
* HarmlessVillain: Or in this case, villains: the Goblin "Army" (may just be the leading squad) of 5 members, who have trouble even remembering each other's names, plan to attack Maxx and Co until [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1212 various obstacles come in their way]], or [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1210 they end up bickering in their many arguments.]] Along with them is the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MadScientist Goblin Tinkerer]], who happens to be a prisoner in their group after one of his inventions accidentally [[RetGone erased another goblin from all past, present, and future timelines.]]
* HerrDoktor: Gus, the Goblin Tinkerer who speaks in heavy German-ish accent.
* HospitalHottie: Apparently Hannah, considering Cyril's mind recited an entire speech about how she was out of his league the moment he saw her. [[spoiler:Although in the real world,[[CannotSpitItOut he was simply standing and staring until the dusk.]]]]
* IdiotHero: Maxx.
* IncomingHam: Maxx's preferred form of entering the fray.
-->'''Maxx:''' EAT CITRUS-SCENTED DEATH, YOU CYCLOPTIC FREAK!!
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: The first time Maxx saw June, she had just hit him with a massive bat made of dirt. According to him, her violent acts only make her hotter.
* {{Intermission}}:
** Because the artist of the webcomic (Jesse) wanted to play the new version of ''Terraria'' before continuing the comic, he decided to have an interview of each member of the main cast from [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1106 Comic 307]] to [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1134 Comic 319]].
** A new RunningGag is that there will be a comic with Maple and Poa every hundredth strip.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Lord Grog, by Xane]]
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: King Xylan, earning nicknames such as Fabio and Edward Cullen from June.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Xane's nickname is "The Maniac".
* NighInvulnerability: The Skeletal Viking Leader, first seen in [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1212 this page]], And later [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1223 this one]], He (and his crewmates) appear to be cursed undead, allowing them to put themselves back together after death.
* NoodleIncident:
** Strip 101 Gives us two, Maxx and Cyril apparently fell into a cave of slimes trying to mate with them, and then a skeletal enchanter swapped their livers.
** The Goblins imprisoned the Goblin Tinkerer because his invention [[RetGone erased another goblin from past, present, future and all alternate timelines]].
* OnlySaneMan:
** Between IdiotHero Maxx, BumblingSidekick Aley, CowardlyLion Cyril and HeroicComedicSociopath June, Hannah is this to the main party.
** Despite being a MadScientist, Gus tends to play this part often. Especially around Sophia.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: They are not so much "holy beings, guardians of light" as they're "hard-partying gamer drunkards".
* PokemonSpeak: The rabbits in the webcomic speak "rabbit". Notable because the other animals sound normal (birds chirp, mice squeak, etc.).
* RapidFireNo: Played straight and then defied.
-->'''Cyril:''' ...Oh no. Oh '''NO.''' '''''No, no, no, NO, NOOOO!!!'''''\\
'''Remiel:''' Sorry, in this situation you're only allowed a maximum of 3 horrified 'no's.
* ReadTheFreakingManual: I don't know which is funnier, the fact that the heart crystal had instructions written on its back that said that consumption may lead to attraction of demonic entities, or the fact that demonic entities were actually attracted to Maxx, who consumed the heart crystal, on two separate occasions.
* RunningGag: Several.
** The Arms Dealer's constant dying in his attempts to introduce himself.
** Maxx attaching an "ey" to the end of a given character's purpose was this for a while (e.g. Guidey, Aley).
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Played straight with Cyril to the point of becoming a borderline RunningGag.
* ShoutOut:
** Early on on the comic Maxx puts on a Skull and become Skeledeath, a [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse Skeletor]] parody.
** This might be a coincidence but the title might be one to a difficult song in VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution called "the legend of max". The composer of that song also composed two other boss songs with "Max" in the name, but spelled "Maxx"
** During [[AuthorAvatar Jesse's]] interview with Maxx, Maxx's story seems like something ripped from the Franchise/StarWars prequels. Jesse doesn't buy it one bit.
** After Cyril's first death, Maxx decides to mourn his loss by drowning his sorrows and signing various songs, the last one is [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie the Goofy Goober song]]. He also sings the Song "American Pie" but with more context sensitive lyrics.
** Meanwhile, when Cyril meets Remiel for the first time the latter mentions that Angels sometimes play 'VideoGame/CallOfDuty''.
** The reason Aley left their kind and become an ale fairy is because they're sick of fairies [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda being expected to guide some guy in green and/or spandex]].
** When Remiel is being called while he's drunk, he uses [[VideoGame/FinalFantasy the Esuna spell]] to make himself sober.
** During the jungle arc, when Maxx is pretending to be able to speak Pygmy, he drops this line:
--->'''Maxx:''' Mooby hooby cheeky [[Machinima/RedVsBlue church tucker]] mo sup fal!
** After Xane [[InTheBack stabs]] [[spoiler:Cyril and blocks Hannah]], he calls his latest victim [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fluttershy]].
* SpriteComic: The comic uses sprites from ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', edited to make expressions for the NPC characters. There are also original sprites created specifically for the comic.
* TemptingFate:
** "Do you see any demons around?" Cue Eye of Cthulhu.
** Invoked [[http://legendofmaxx.com/?p=1161 here.]]
* TokenMiniMoe: Among the Elders there is Elder Acorn, a little girl.
* UnsoundEffect:
** Maxx crashes the wedding of [[spoiler: Cyril and Skelerina]] and uses the Blade of Grass to slice [[spoiler:Skelerina]]'s head off, accompanied by a loud sound effect of "Creator/GeorgeRRMartin".
** The sound of Maxx removing (un-shanking) his blade from [[spoiler:Xylan]]'s body is "knahs".
* WaveMotionGun: Aley, a fairy that fits through the spout on a beer keg, is capable of doing this to everything he comes across [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill one by one]].
* WebcomicOfTheGame: Of ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}''.
* WhatTheHellHero: Aley's response after Maxx [[spoiler: shoves Aley into a hornet hive with the purpose of blowing the hive up.]]
* WingedHumanoid: [[OurAngelsAreDifferent The Angels]] are an entire race of these, complete with [[CoolMask masks]] to hide their real faces from human perception.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: The Naiads' hair are different shades of blue.
