''Wakfu'' is considered a [[SeriesFranchise "cross-media"]], consisting of the animation, the [=MMOG=], and a trading card game. However, the animation has generated four other [[SpinOff Spin-Offs]] by itself: a series of shorts called ''Mini-Wakfu'', which supplies some useful [[AllThereInTheManual background information]] on the two games (''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}'' and ''Wakfu''); a browser-based MMORPG, ''Wakfu: The Guardians'', which uses the same engine as ''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}'' and allows the player to "replay" the episodes of the series through small dungeons, with characters similar in appearance and powers to [[TheHero Yugo]]; a series of graphic novels titled ''Wakfu Heroes''; and a mix between a BeatEmUp and ShootEmUp called ''VideoGame/IslandsOfWakfu'' for the UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade that acts as a {{Prequel}} for the series. Ankama has released an English trailer and a [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1836563008/wakfu-the-animated-series?ref=live Kickstarter for a home video release (and English dub) in North America]] -- that raised over ''six times'' the required amount. As of January 19, 2015 both seasons of the English dub are available on Netflix. Netflix is also co-producing the show's third season along side France 4.

From a technical point of view, ''Wakfu'' is drawn with vectors using the UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash program, and follows a lot of [[{{Animesque}} anime clichés]], though the final work is quite unique (and tends to be pretty awesome). It is also notable that the series is animated almost entirely in France, which is rare considering the costs of such a production. Ankama's sister company in Japan is responsible for the animation not done by Ankama proper, the bonus episode "Noximilien" was animated by Creator/{{Madhouse}}, and a 52-minute feature on Ogrest was made in collaboration with Creator/StudioGhibli[[note]]with assistance from Madhouse[[/note]].
