A 42-issue {{animesque}} Brazilian comic written by Marcelo Cassaro with art by Erica Awano, set in a medieval fantasy world called Arton, based on the {{TabletopRPG}} ''Tormenta'' (meaning both "Storm" and "Torment" in Portuguese and named after an interdimensional storm that corrupts and destroys whatever it appears on and stays there), originally published in the RPG magazine ''Dragão Brasil''. The series also spawned various spinoffs and drama cds.

Arguably the most successful non child-oriented Brazilian comic book, the series is infamous for its [[ShoutOut outrageous anime references]] and a combination of [[RefugeInAudacity fantasy and horror elements with screwball action-comedy]].

After losing his place in the pantheon of Arton due to a conspiracy that could exterminate all gods, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Sszzass]] the [[ManipulativeBastard God of Betrayal]] [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent and serpents]] was presumably killed and forever forgotten. In reality he was exiled and extremely weakened. To recover his divine status, he plots a very intricate plan during decades involving various heroes and events.

Taking central part in this plan there are innocent {{raised by wolves}} [[NubileSavage druid]] Lisandra, [[RedHeadedHero redheaded]] [[IdiotHero idiot hero]] Sandro Galtran, {{stripperiffic}} {{cloudcuckoolander}} elven mage Niele, [[BloodKnight insanely]] [[ClusterFBomb grumpy]] dwarf-troglodyte Tork, [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Paladin]], a legendary fallen hero and his twenty [[MineralMacGuffin Rubies of Virtue]], indestructible magical gems forged by each one of the twenty most powerful gods of Arton and currently scattered all over the world.

!!This series contains examples of:

* AbsurdlySharpBlade
* ActionGirl: Lisandra, Loriane, Lenora. Anne to some degree.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Every single main character (and some not so main) got an special issue with one-shot stories featuring them.
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: The Dragon-Kings are so insanely titanic and monstrous they can kill just by [[BrownNote being seen]], yet Beluhga the Queen of White Dragons appear as an extremely beautiful woman in an elegant dress and an ice coronet, and Sckhar the King of Red Dragons as a slender, handsome hedheaded elf.
* AloofBigBrother: James K. to Anne, or at least [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold what he wants her to think]].
* AnIcePerson: Beluhga, the queen of the white dragons epitomizes this trope. Her mere presence was enough to turn a region the size of China into a glacial desert.
* AuthorAvatar: Both Cassaro and Awano. {{Hilarity Ensues}}.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The seven Dragon Kings, nuff said. The 20 High Priests may count too.
* AWizardDidIt
* BerserkButton: May the Gods have mercy of you if you DARE badmouth The Paladin in front of [[{{Yandere}} Lisandra]]...
* BloodKnight: Master Arsenal, the high priest of the God of War.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Just as above, if you want to live a long, healthy life, just stay away of Lisandra and the Rubies of Virtue...
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Broke by two of Sckhar's concubines who wonder if a lot of things they already know keeps being repeated just for the reader's sake.
* BreakTheCutie
* BreathWeapon: Most dragons seem to have one.
* CallingYourAttacks: Niele in every spell she (tries) to cast.
** '''[[GratuitousJapanese MOERU MOERU]]'''!!!
* CityOfAdventure: Malpetrim, Valkaria, Triumphus, Vectora.
** It's a whole World of Adventure (10% of the population is composed of adventurers). Even then, Malpetrim is considered '''the''' city of adventure in the setting.
* CoolShip: A pirate ship with butterfly wings, no less.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler: The fate of the villagers brutally murdered and turned into inhuman monstrosities by Lisandra.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: Tarso the king of dracoliches resumes the trope, showing himself as a [[MoeMoe cute]], friendly and good-natured little skeleton with a love for [[TrademarkFavoriteFood ice scream]].
** Tenebra, the Goddess of Darkness and patron of all undead is a genuine gentle person who cares for her loved ones.
*** Zigzagged in the case of Tenebra: She may be very sweet towards the cute (which goes hand in hand with having Protection as one of her domains), but she is still very much TrueNeutral. A few stories show you do NOT want to cross her.
* DeadpanSnarker: The series provides priceless examples. Anne, Tork, Loriane and the inkeeper Rudd are just a few.
* DealWithTheDevil: Niele does this without knowing the consequences by acquiring Sszzass' Eye.
* DeathIsCheap: Actually, [[SubvertedTrope ressurection is said to be very expensive]], and [[KilledOffForReal sometimes does not work.]]
** Vladislav trying to resurrect [[spoiler: the Paladin after their failed attempt to steal one of Sckhar's lairs]] is what caused him to become so powerful and crazy.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: [[spoiler:The Paladin.]]
* EyeScream: Upon realizing that she was forever imprisoned because of Sckhar, Beluhga becomes a little pissed and gouges one of his eyes off.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Sszzass, Sckhar, the sea elf Prince Deenar.
* FertileFeet: Lisandra displays this ability sometimes.
* FinalBattle
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero [[spoiler: before her [[{{Start Of Darkness}} dive into genocidal insanity]]]]: Lisandra
** TheLancer: Sandro
** TheBigGuy and {{Team Dad}}: Tork, although "big" isn't a proper adjective to him.
** TheSmartGuy and {{Tag Along Kid}}: Anne K.
** TheChick: Niele, although her {{Lets Get Dangerous}} moments of pure [[CrazyAwesome crazy awesomeness]] makes her {{The Ace}}.
** TheSixthRanger: James K. the Pirate Lord, when he's not struggling to survive Niele's {{Wild Magic}}.
* FloatingContinent: Vectora, the "Sky City".
* FunPersonified: Niele lives for the sake of bringing happiness and smiles to every person she meets. Although she [[spoiler: acts like that partially [[StepfordSmiler to cover her own insecurities]] [[HiddenDepths and the guilt she feels]] for being the (not so) responsible for Lenórienn's destruction]] as later revealed, the series shows that she already was FunPersonified even after those events.
** Wynna the Goddess of Magic don't just share the same [[{{Stripperific}} wardrobe]] of Niele. Those two arguably are the most positive and cheerful characters of the show.
* GreenThumb: Lisandra shows how this power can be devastating when given to an unstable yandere.
* HeelFaceTurn: Aspis
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Practically what Sandro is while trying to be a thief.
* IceQueen: Beluhga is a more literal example of this trope. Her personality traits are more of a SugarAndIcePersonality or a {{Defrosting Ice Queen}}.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Holy Avenger itself.
* IdiotHero: Sandro, and his father Leon Galtran to an extent.
* IdolSinger: Niele has an army of devoted fans in Malpetrim.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Tork. His scythe [[spoiler: is actually made from the arm of Deenar, the evil [[OurElvesAreDifferent Sea Elf]] who seeks vengeance for that.]]
* LittleMissBadass: Anne K.
* LethalChef: Petra is the UrExample.
* LoveRedeems
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: And how!
* MusicalAssassin: Lucky Luigi.
* NoSocialSkills: Lisandra. Being RaisedByWolves and by a mercenary without contact to civilization does this to one person.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler: Lisandra]]
* PlayingWithFire: Sckhar, The Moóck, and, sometimes, Niele.
* RefugeInAudacity
* RaisedByWolves: Lisandra. Literally, for at last 10 years until Tork come along, anyway.
* RoyalBastard: Prince Mitkov Yudennach III of Yuden.
* ScrewYouElves: And how. The setting BEGINS with their city destroyed and taken over by goblins and bugbears due to their arrogance. Pride cometh before a fall.
* ShrinkingViolet: Poor Petra had a lot of bad stuff happening to her life that practically destroyed her self-confidence. She gets better towards the end of the series.
* ShoutOut: ''SaintSeiya'', ''StreetFighter'', ''{{Evangelion}}'', ''{{Inuyasha}}'' and many, many others.
* SinisterScythe: A troglodyte character wields one.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Niele and Wynna.
** {{Lampshaded}} by Sandro when he meets Niele:
--> '''Sandro''': We're not in such a hurry, you can finish getting dressed. What, you're already dressed?!
* StuffBlowingUp: Niele loves this trope.
* TheDreaded: Master Arsenal is a frequent source of nightmares for the majority of people in Arton, and he is just one of many. Thwor Ironfist, Vectorius, Schkar, The Paladin, Nekapeth, Gwen Haggenfar, Black Skull and Niele herself enlarges the list.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: James K. incompetent crew.
* TheFairFolk: Pondsmânia is an entire country occupied by all kinds of fae creatures, from [[FairyCompanion butterfly-winged sprites]] to [[EldritchAbomination powerful otherworldly beings]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Hilariously enough, Captain James K. is a huge tsundere for Niele. He is a type A (being very tsun tsun towards her most of the time).
* WhatTheHellHero: The Paladin's selfish, arrogant and ambitious behavior was a hint that something wasn't right with him.
* WinterRoyalLady: Queen Beluhga, to the core.
* WizardingSchool: The Arcane Academy.
* WomanInBlack: [[MeaningfulName Tenebra]], the Goddess of Darkness and the undead. Still, unlike the archetypal image of her in most people minds, she is a [[DarkIsNotEvil rather benevolent, gentle and caring]] deity responsible for one of the most memorable PetTheDog moments in the series.
* {{Yandere}}: ''Lisandra does not welcome slanderous filth about The Paladin''. Because he is important! He is her hero! And she loves him! She will do ''everything'' to recover his precious rubies, and Heaven helps those who cross her path while she gets more and more powerful and emotionally unstable...
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: Beluhga, Tarso, Sckhar, and the other Dragon Kings.
** The [[EldritchAbomination Lefeu race]] [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow are a particularly]] nasty example, too.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Niele is just the most blatant example. Justified that most elves have unusual hair colors.
