''Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire'' (properly [[HeavyMetalUmlaut "Kröd Mändoon," not "Krod Mandoon."]]) is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what you think it's about.]] Yes, TheHero is named Kröd Mändoon, and he has a [[ShapedLikeItself flaming sword of fire.]] Creator, developer, and writer Peter Knight said that its humour is influenced by ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''Series/GetSmart'', and ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''. It aired in 2009.

The series is mostly a parody of HeroicFantasy. The basic plot is that Kröd is the leader of a band of [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified good rebels]] fighting against an evil dictator named Dongalor. Yet within that simple premise is a bunch of subplots and character-driven humor.

!!''Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire'' provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Aneka
* BritishBrevity
* BuryYourGays: General Arcadius dies saving Kröd in the first episode not long after discovering his sexuality.
** In one episode the heroes are seduced by four unholy succubi, three women plus one gay man for Bruce. Guess which one of them dies first.
* CatchPhrase: "Daggers!"
* ComedicSociopathy: Dongalor again.
* TheChosenOne: The Golden One, chosen to sound less cliched than "the chosen one."
* TheChosenZero: Only the titular character and his TrueCompanions can light the resistance's beacon...
* CowardlySidekick: Zezelryk
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: The Flaming Sword of Fire.
* DepravedBisexual: Cy The Biclops. He captures Kröd and co. with the specific intent of "sexing and eating" them. He also talks about how he's been such a manwhore since his breakup with Lisa.
** And Chad
* TheEmpire
* EroticEating: Aneka, with an ''entire'' banana. And, as with everything in the series, kicked UpToEleven in parody, ending with Longshaft "motorboating" a pair of cantaloupes and Aneka attempting to drink from a coconut two feet above her face and [[CheerfulChild grinn]][[FetishRetardant ing]].
* EthnicMagician: Zezelry.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Kröd and Dongalor went to "the academy" together.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Dongalor
* FlamingSword: [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Of Fire]].
** Achieved practically rather than with CGI.
* GagPenis: Loquasto. When the three men bust out some protection for getting it on with the succubi, Loquasto's is ''way'' longer than the other two, prompting this comment from Bruce.
-->''Bruce'': I guess the saying is true. Once you go grobble, you hobble.
* GoshDangItToHeck: "Daggers!"
* HeavyMetalUmlaut: ''Two'' of them.
* IdiotHero: Kröd.
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Dongalor's love interest during the Bi-clops episode. Complete with BloodFromTheMouth. Dongalor calls her (and her grave marker reads) the Pretty girl From The Village With the Big Cans and the "Hump-Me" Eyes. In the credits she's simply called Cute Girl, which is also on her grave marker.
* IneptMage: Zezelryk.
* InteractiveNarrator: Played with: At the end of the pilot, when Dongalor and Barnabus are discussing the prophecy, and the narrator comments that it is Kröd's destiny.
--> '''Dongalor:''' I see... ''(looks around)'' ...Was that you, Barnabus?
* KickTheDog[=/=]MoodWhiplash: After a boy's (scripted) sad story doesn't make the pagan women cry, Dongalor orders that the boy to be thrown off a bridge, and for his dog to be used as a mop.
* LaResistance
* LostTechnology: In the form of Lost Magic: The Eye of Gulga Grymna.
* TheLoad: Bruce, Loquasto and Zezelryk all trade this one off because all do have moments of usefulness. Zezelryk is skilled with potions (and now has a nifty magic item), Loquasto is strong and has a superior sense of smell and in the last episode Bruce proved he can fight well when he has to.
* LukeIAmYourFather: Spoofed in the final episode of Season 1-As it is, Dongalor is Kröd's brother...in law. He isn't even married to Kröd's sister anymore!
* MeaningfulName: Kröd's name is meaningful if you spell it backwards.
** Horst Draper (Who lays with horses).
* MisterSeahorse: Loquasto, Zezelryk and (noticeably) Bruce, during "Succubi: The Dawn's Early Light", [[spoiler: with the spawn of the titular Succubi (and token Incubus, in Bruce's case)]].
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Grimshank playing Double Agent. He planned to let Dongalor set off the Eye, but re-aim it at Dongalor's castle.]]
* MrFanservice: Kröd
* MsFanservice: Aneka, which Kröd constantly [[LampshadeHanging hangs a]] [[IncrediblyLamePun lantern]] on.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg:
--> These are my best friends in the world! And Bruce!
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Congrats, Kröd. You just [[spoiler: gave the thing that'll power the DoomsdayDevice to TheMole!]]
* NinetiesAdventureShow: It's a parody of the fantasy versions of this.
* NoRespectGuy: Kröd.
* NotSoStoic: Even though pagan women aren't supposed to cry, [[spoiler: Aneka does cry when TheMole tells her that Kröd and his gang are dead]]. This is particularly unfortunate as [[spoiler: Dongalor needs a pagan woman's tears to fuel his weapon]].
* OnlySaneMan: Kröd as noted above but also Barnabas in relation to Dongalor.
* PettingZooPeople: Loquasto, specifically PigMan
* PrecisionFStrike: Dongalor, when the foppish weapons inspector prances in.
* ReallyGetsAround: Aneka
* RedHerringMole: [[spoiler: Grimshank]]
* SecretOtherFamily: The bartender.
* ServileSnarker: Barnabas, to a point.
* ShapedLikeItself: The Flaming Sword of Fire!
* SheFu: Aneka does this a lot, while giving free {{Panty Shot}}s ([[VaporWear when she's wearing them]]) to everyone looking.
* ShirtlessScene: Kröd on the 1st episode!
* SissyVillain: Dongalor, even if he is technically straight.
* TheStoic: Full-blooded pagan women (almost) never cry - torturing them, showing them a sad play, and even chopping onions in front of their faces has no effect.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Aneka again, which Kröd [[HoldYourHippogriffs hangs a lantern]] on.
* SuddenlySexuality: The General, which Kröd also hangs a lantern on.
* TemptingFate: "It'll take more than an arrow to kill the greatest general who ever lived!" Yep, it did. He was doing well up until the ballista.
** The throwing axe bouncing off his head didn't help much either.
* TooSoon: [[invoked]]Dongalor has a village maiden's father killed in front of her and then makes a joke about how he won't have to ask for his permission to date her. She looks at him distraught, to which he responds "Too soon?"
* VulgarHumor:
** The Festival of Three Hundred Moons. It's exactly what you think it's about.
** Kröd's rival for Aneka's affections is named ''Longshaft''. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything?
** Don't forget that Dongalor's ArtifactOfDoom looks like nothing so much as a ''gigantic anus''.
*** The power of which is weaponized hemmhorhoids, since it becomes a Flaming Eye of Death once you stick a certain object [[spoiler: merely a giant gemstone]] into it.
