----
!!!''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* MacGuffinGuardian:
** The Golem in episode 23, guarding [[spoiler:Grougaloragran's dofus]].
** Phaeris the Powerful is guarding [[spoiler:Shinonome's dofus]], thus forbidding any access to the Crimson Claws.
* MadEye: Ig˘le. That's even its nickname given by Lotie.
* MadScientist:
** Nox, of the {{Magitek}} (and watchmaker) variant.
** [[spoiler:Qilby]]
* MagicallyRegeneratingClothing: An Eniripsa's healing do this. We get a close-up with Ruel during the Bontarian Gobbowl's arc, with his cloth mending at the same time as the wound.
* MagicalSecurityCam: Nox's use of these is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as being integrated into his swarm of wakfu harvesters, the Noxines, in his first onscreen appearance.
* MagicAntidote: The glowing sap from the legendary tree in episode 7.
* MagicMap: The main characters come across a map possessed by a demon named Grufon (as in, the minor shuhsu is ''stuck inside the map''). The map is very accurate and offers handy shortcuts to various places. However, it also has a mind of its own, and often tries to trick the party by offering false information based on half-truths. Frequently, Grufon is threatened (usually with fire) by characters into giving the right information. Though after Yugo agrees to be his Guardian, as only highly powerful Shuhsu are allowed a Guardian, he becomes a lot more compliant.
* MagicMirror: Igor the Shushu mirror allows communication with Rushu.
* MagicPants:
** Sadlygrove's, when he's melding with Rubilax.
** Phaeris'.
* TheMagnificentSevenSamurai: "The Magnificent Five"
* MakeMeWannaShout: The Bellaphones' main mode of attack.
* ManEatingPlant:
** Two big ones in season 1 episode 7, following orders from Sybannak (the crazy old Sadida).
** A huge one under Armand's control during the fight in season 1 episode 19.
* MarkedChange:
** [[spoiler:Qilby]]
** [[spoiler:Yugo]]
* MartialArtsAndCrafts:
** Yugo's cooking and serving style.
** Episode 8 treats baking like a difficult martial art. And it's SeriousBusiness.
* MascotMook: The Gobballs
* MatingDance: Sadlygrove's dream sequence in episode 22 of season 1. Provides the page image.
* MayorOfAGhostTown: [[spoiler:Ruel]]
* MeaningfulName:
** Perhaps unintentionally, Evangelyne -- or rather, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangeline Evangeline]]. Evangelyne was never sent away from her homeland and forcibly separated from her LoveInterest, but the two Evas do share in common [[spoiler:obsessively searching for said LoveInterest, only to have him die in their arms soon after they are reunited]] by the end of the first season.
** Also can be unintentional, but Yugo is Japanese for "bravery".
** Nox is Latin for "night" (fitting his time-theme}, but it is also similar to "Noxa" (which means damage towards organisms), fitting with his plan on harvesting wakfu.
** [[http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chouquette Chouquette]], duh.
** BrÔkmar is phonetically the same as a French slang word designing a... hu... [[GagPenis part of the male anatomy when oversized]]. Fitting for a town that's a bastion of machismo.
** Jactance the Gobbowl commentator. "Jactance" is slang for talking too much and conceitedly.
** Slo-Mo the Xelor referee. He can slow down time to allow the spectators to better see the best Gobbowl actions.
* MeanwhileScene: In season 1 episode 12, which also doubles as SmiteMeOhMightySmiter.
* MeatPuppet:
** It's hard to say if they're still alive, but Nox uses three "warrior mummy puppets" in episode 17, each one clearly using the powers of a different class (Sacrier, Feca and Cra). Information is lacking whether they were [[AndIMustScream real people before]]. While their official profiles on the French ''Wakfu'' page are hardly informative and consist of scarcely anything but nonsensical jokes, at least one of them heavily implies that they were indeed born as regular people. In the ''Wakfu'' game, Xelors have the ability to revive recently dead allies as mummies. Considering that many of Nox's other abilities are Xelor spells turned UpToEleven, they were almost certainly real people that Nox kept on hand in case he needed back-up.
** Nox [[TheUnfettered outdoes himself]] in episode 24 by [[spoiler:controlling the Sadidas via their {{Synchronization}} with their Sadida dolls]]. Considering how violating that must be, it's more than certainly a FateWorseThanDeath for the puppets.
* MechanicalMonster: Razortime
* MeleeATrois:
** Evangelyne vs. Remington & Grany vs. [[spoiler:Rubilax in Sadlygrove's body and his ghouls]].
** The finale of season 2 features a huge battle involving simultaneously [[spoiler:the Sufokian Navy, Phaeris the Powerful, the Brotherhood of the Tofu, Rushu and his Shushu horde (including Anathar possessing Adama´), Goultard, and finally Qilby]]. It's hard to get more tangled than that.
* TheMerch: An in-universe example in episode 12, when everyone sells stuff with Yugo's face on it and in Real Boitar's colors.
* MerchantCity: Bonta
* MessyPig: About all of season 2 episode 5.
* MetronomicManMashing: This happens [[spoiler:to Sadlygrove]] during his fight against the Dragon-Pig.
* MidairBobbing: Vampyro
* MidBattleTeaBreak: When Adamai and Grougaloragran are fighting [[spoiler:Qilby]] in Season 2 Episode 20. They stop in the middle of it to laugh at the reaction [[spoiler:Qilby]] made when Grougal surprised him.
* MilkyWhiteEyes: Lots of monsters in the series seem to have [[MonochromaticEyes white eyes with black borders]].
** This is a trait of Iops in the video games, and for a time in episode 22 this happens to Sadlygrove.
** Also can be seen with Sacriers like Kriss Krass.
** Grougaloragran in humanoid form. Close-ups show very pale pupils.
** Vampyro's ghouls have those.
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: [[spoiler:Rubilax]] in the first few episodes of season 2, who [[spoiler:although fully possessing Sadlygrove's body, [[ThePowerOfLove cannot bring it to hit Evangelyne]] despite all his efforts]].
* MindScrew: The end of season 1 episode 20. It was even worse for English-speaking fans, eager for the next episode, watching it sans subs. [[spoiler:It turned out to be AllJustADream.]]
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens:
** Sybannak the old Sadida, from season 1 episode 7.
** Ratafouine and his assistant Chouquette, from season 1 episodes 8-9.
** Nanda, from season 2 episode 2.
** Ruel's grandmother, from season 2 episode 7.
* MiniMecha: Several of them used by the Sufokian Navy.
* MinionMaracas: Amalia does this to Yugo in episode 13 of season 1.
* AMinorKidroduction: Yugo is already a KidHero, but the first episode introduces him as a baby.
* MistakenForGay: [[spoiler:Sadlygrove and "Evangelion" hugging]] during the BrÔkmarian Gobbowl arc.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Many creatures of the world of ''Wakfu'' are this.
** A telling example with Ig˘le, the beast Nox sends after Yugo and Adama´. It looks like a mix of wolf or dog, hyena or panther, with the body shape of a lizard.
* ModestyTowel: In episode 4, though not just to keep modesty but also to hide the "ugly princesses" disguises. Unfortunately, the only towel to fall is ''[[FanDisservice Ruel's]]''.
* MoneyFetish: Ruel and his entire race/class/religion.
* MonowheelMayhem: Nox's {{Mook}}s ride such monowheeled vehicles to battle, looking like giant cogwheels.
* MonsterClown: [[spoiler:Qilby]]
* MonsterIsAMommy: In the first episode of season 2.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: The villain even shows up at the end of the opening credits throughout season 1, though as the season progresses and into season 2 the show begins to turn away from this format.
* MoodWhiplash: So after season 1 episodes 25 and 26, which include [[spoiler:a main character heartwrenchingly sacrificing himself]] and [[spoiler:the mother of all {{Bittersweet Ending}}s]] respectively, what was the viewer treated to? Why, a charming episode of ''[[TastesLikeDiabetes Mini-Wakfu]]'' of course! Although originally episode 26 had a more fitting post-credits segment that shows [[spoiler:Nox after the finale]].
* {{Mooks}}: Nox's Grouilleux (Crawlies). Also FacelessGoons due to their hoods and scarfs.
** EliteMooks: The "Red Berserker" Grouilleux.
** MookLieutenant: The "[[HighClassGlass Monocle]]" Grouilleux ordering the others around.
** EvilMinions: The "Technicians" inside Nox's Clock.
* MorphicResonance:
** Grougaloragran retains his bushy eyebrows and beard, as well as a general dark color, when he transforms.
** This is also true for Adama´, who can take many shapes but keeps his white-and-blue color scheme and peculiar eyes.
** Same goes for anyone possessed by a Shushu, [[TransformationOfThePossessed as they ressemble something that is half themselves and half evil monster]]. They tend to get much bigger, though.
** In season 2 episode 5, [[spoiler:Yugo, Amalia, and Evangelyne are turned into piglets, but retain some recognizeable traits, like Eva's {{green eyes}} and [[YouthfulFreckles freckles]], or dark skin and tufts of green hair for Amalia]].
** Also happens with the heroes changed into Thursters in season 2 episode 13. You can still recognize them, which make the scene [[spoiler:where Evangelyne and Sadlygrove try to touch each other that more pathetic]].
** And again in season 2 episode 21, [[spoiler:when the Bellaphones turns the male members of the party into apes or monkeys]].
* MrViceGuy: Ruel Stroud, who as an Enutrof pretty much has to be obsessed with wealth.
* MsFanservice: Evangelyne, especially in episode 4 or during the beginning of episode 22.
* {{Muggle Foster Parent|s}}: Alibert, Yugo's adoptive father. Apparently, as of episode 6 of season 2, [[spoiler:he's one for Chibi too]].
* MultipleDemographicAppeal
* MundaneMadeAwesome: The Gobbowl arc, both times.
* MundaneUtility: [[TimeMaster A Xelor referee]] uses his time-manipulation abilities to display the actions in slow motion, during the BrÔkmarian Gobbowl arc.
* MusicalAssassin: The Voice Thief
* TheMusketeer: Remington Smisse
* MyLifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes: Amalia during the Bontarian Gobbowl tournament, when there's a super-charged throw headed right at her.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: In season 2 episode 23, when [[spoiler:a portal opens from Rushu's World and an army of Shushus swarms the Crimson Claws]], Master Goultard immediately feels it although he's in another part of the world.
* MythologyGag: The female Iop carrying a basket in episode 3 uses the same (only recoloured) animation as Goultard's mother from a previous short film made by Ankama, ''Goultard the Barbarian''.
* TheNameIsBondJamesBond: Parodied by the pirate captain in episode 18. "My name is Monde... [[PunnyName Smisse Monde]]."
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast:
** Nox specifically intended for his name to have this effect.
** Bourlof the Butcher ("Bourlof le DÚpeceur")
* TheNapoleon:
** Riglesse, the leader of the air pirates, in season 2 episode 7.
** Cassis, the dictator of Breta, in season 2 episode 22.
* NatureSpirit: The Polters.
* NearVillainVictory: At the end of season 1, [[spoiler:Nox succeeds in draining the Sadidas' Tree of Life, wiping out their entire race, drains TheHero, Yugo, of his wakfu, and successfully becomes the first Xelor to travel backwards in time. However, the process drains all the wakfu he spent 200 years collecting and only sends him back 20 minutes]].
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: In the first season's Gobbowl match, Sadlygrove scores a spectacular goal... only to find that he scored against his own team.
* NemeanSkinning: In season 1 episode 17, Sadlygrove shears a pack of arctic dog-like beasts with one slash of his sword -- without even killing them -- to provide wool for his companions.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Don't mess with Ruel's grandmother. No, really, just don't.
* NeverTrustATrailer: Ankama seems to enjoy taking all of the most epic scenes out of an episode and throwing them into a trailer without context. It's perhaps justified, since the erratic airing schedule means that they need as much hype as possible behind each new episode.
** Episode 16 was especially bad for this, coming after a several month hiatus. The trailer showed Sadlygrove screaming and surrounded by flames, wielding Rubilax with dark tendrils growing up his arms, which led to a lot of speculation about him gaining some sort of demonic power or finally having Rubilax [[DemonicPossession completely take him over]]. In the episode itself, it was nothing but a visual cue that Sadlygrove was at his limit and that [[spoiler:[[EnemyMine Rubilax was working ''with'' him and not against him]]]].
** The trailer for the three-episode season 1 finale was met with skepticism for this very reason. The trailer made it suspiciously obvious that [[spoiler:Evangelyne and Sadlygrove would die together]], but as it turns out, [[spoiler:the trailer was pretty trustworthy this time around. Sadlygrove does indeed die in Eva's arms, though Eva herself is saved by the timely arrival of Ruel and his DrillTank]].
* NewSuperPower: Yugo's wakfu training and experimentation with his portal power in episode 21 result [[spoiler:in gaining a ''friggin' laser beam'']], which certainly made battles easier afterward.
* NiceHat:
** Yugo has a blue hat with ear-shaped protrusions, and has worn it since birth. Throughout the entire series Yugo takes off his hat only twice, and even his friends have never seen what's under it.
** Alibert wears an enormous toque blanche.
** The huge hat of Xav the baker may qualify too.
** Qilby's.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain:
** Kriss Krass during the Bontarian Gobbowl match. His team could have very easily beaten Ruel and Co., but he didn't want of a too-easy victory, since it wouldn't give a good enough show to the crowd. So, Kriss pretends to be hurt for a part of the match, and even at the end he takes his sweet time scoring the final goal, giving Sadlygrove the opportunity to best him.
** Played with in the season 1 finale. [[spoiler:Nox drains the Sadida's Tree of Life and Yugo of their wakfu.]] However, he then [[spoiler:uses that wakfu to travel back in time, undoing both of those things. Interesting in that this was what he intended from the start, and in fact the main reason he was willing to do such horrible things was his belief that they would all be undone upon his success]]. Ultimately [[spoiler:averted. Nox is unable to travel back in time far enough to undo anything more than Yugo's death and the destruction of the Tree of Life, meaning that everyone else that he's killed (stated to be entire countries worth of people) stays dead. His failure to invoke this trope is one of several factors contributing to the DownerEnding]].
** Once again in season 2 episode 4. [[spoiler:In hindsight, being total dicks towards Rubilax, when he still was in control of the situation, wasn't the smartest thing Shadofang and Rushu could have done. As a result, Rubilax finally decided that playing a CardCarryingVillain sucks.]]
* NoBodyLeftBehind:
** From the season 1 finale, [[spoiler:Sadlygrove]], though [[spoiler:his body ''does'' resurface in season 2 episode 2]].
** Also [[spoiler:Nox]], shown in the final season 1 credits, whose only remains are his old gear and some dust.
* NoImmortalInertia: [[spoiler:Nox]]
* NonchalantDodge:
** In season 1 episode 17, Grougaloragran in human form avoids some of the attacks of Nox's puppets this way, before resorting to DeflectorShields when they intensify the assault.
** In the season 2 finale, Sadlygrove dodge Remington's first shot with a minimal twist of the head, and deflect the second with Rubilax before punching the Roublard.
* NonHumanSidekick:
** Yugo has Az;
** Sadlygrove has [[SnarkyNonHumanSidekick Rubilax]];
** Ruel has Junior;
** Amalia has her Sadida doll.
* TheNoseless:
** Sadlygrove and other Iops;
** Kriss Krass and other Sacriers;
** Remington Smisse (but only in the cartoon).
* NotQuiteDead:
** In episode 2, Alibert, the adoptive father of Yugo, is changed into a plant, but by the end of the episode he is cured.
** [[spoiler:Goultard]], too, proves to be alive in episode 22. Though [[AllThereInTheManual various other Ankama media]] claim that he is immortal.
* NotSoInnocentWhistle
* NumberOfTheBeast:
** See TakeANumber.
** The "[[ZergRush Rush]]" in Rushu's World consists of fighting 666 minor demons.
** Close enough: the player number of the Masked Gobbowler is 665.
* OcularGushers:
** Tolot (Ruel's friend from his Gobbowl time) indulges in this in episode 10 of season 1.
** Jay the Iop cries a river when he realizes his dream of marrying Evangelyne won't come true.
** Also Lady Glagla in episode 14 of season 2.
* OdangoHair: Princesses Lela and Erpel are prominent examples.
* OffhandBackhand:
** Sadlygrove does it to his imaginary, [[FunSize Fun-Sized]] "[[TheConscience Conscience]]" in episode 22.
** Nox does this towards Adama´ in episode 26.
* OfficialCouple: Sadlygrove & Evangelyne
* OhCrap:
** Adama´ in season 1 episode 26 [[spoiler:being greeted by Nox]].
** Remington and Grany witnessing Rubilaxia.
** Rubilax in season 2 episode 23 [[spoiler:when he feels the portal to Rushu's World opening]]. Even though he's just an eye, he's still very expressive.
* OhMyGods:
** The characters use quite often the name of their titular gods within common expressions.
*** "For the love of CrÔ..."
*** "Sadida help us!"
*** "Enutrof, give me strength!"
** Ogrest's name is used with more negative connotations: "Chaos of Ogrest!", "Thunder of Ogrest!"
** Also, the Shushus frequently swear by Rushu.
* OhNoNotAgain:
** Season 2 episode 4:
--->'''Evangelyne:''' Amalia and Ruel have gotten themselves turned into ghouls!\\
'''[[spoiler:Sadlygrove]]:''' [[CallBack Again?]] Ruel will end up getting a taste for it...
** A much less comedic instance at the end of season 2 episode 8, [[spoiler:when Eva watches Sadlygrove being dragged into Rushu's dimension by Anathar]].
** Sadlygrove says this when he sees the magic-nullifying device the second time.
* OmnicidalManiac: Rushu wants to invade the human world. Why? ''Because there's nothing left to destroy in the Shushu world.'' Destroying things for Shushus seems to be like enjoying a fine wine or a particularly nice cake for rational people. In one CreativeClosingCredits, a Shushu comes upon a single untouched flower and begins excitedly contemplating exactly how he plans to destroy it, or even if he should put off destroying it so he'll have something to destroy tomorrow. [[spoiler:Another Shushu comes along and steps on it while he's planning]].
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Rubilax not saying a word for three episodes straight can get Sadlygrove really worried.
* OperaGloves:
** Evangelyne wears white ones (with a princess gown) in episode 4, and red ones (with a translucent dress of the same color) in episode 22. Then black [[FingerlessGloves fingerless long gloves]] are part of her standard season 2 outfit.
** Miranda wears them, too.
* OpposingSportsTeam:
** The Red Gobballs in Bonta.
** The Brak'n'Black in BrÔkmar.
* OrderVersusChaos: Wakfu and Stasis. Creation versus destruction. Neither one is inherently bad or good, though.
* OrphanedPunchline: Amalia tells such a joke at the beginning of season 2 episode 8.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: To be specific, Grougaloragran is a shape-changing, fire-breathing old brown dragon, while Adama´ is a shape-changing, energetic, rhyming young blue-and-white dragon. [[spoiler:He's also Yugo's brother, hatched from the same Dofus, or egg.]]
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Subverted a bit with the Enutrofs. Their body isn't exactly dwarvish, and in fact they look like normal humans. But they have a love for anything glittery, adept at digging tunnels, and season 2 episode 17 mentions "the Enutrof mines" as a potential refugee camp for the Eliatrope people.
* OurOrcsAreDifferent: Bworks
* OurTimeTravelIsDifferent: "Videocassette Time Travel" in season 1 episode 26, [[spoiler:but [[MemeticMutation only for 20 miserable minutes]]. Nox realizes quickly that something is wrong because the travel time was "too short" to have been 200 years backward -- whatever that could mean]].
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampyro. He doesn't suck blood, but can steal your shadow and make you one of his ghouls. He isn't a true vampire, though, [[spoiler:just a guy possessed by a demon which he has fallen in love with]].
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: They are people turned into bamboo creatures called Thursters who constantly search to quench their thirst. They've changed into these creatures from drinking bamboo milk polluted by the salt water that got into the fields. Also, they are unable to physically touch anything that isn't made out of pure bamboo, and simply phase through anything or anyone else. However, when they phase through a person, they too become Thursters. Not to mention, if you know a Pandawa song, they can't help but dance to it when you sing.
* OverlyLongGag: In episode 4 of season 1, Eva twisting her ankle and falling over when trying to walk in heels has already become a RunningGag, but then she does so while climbing the stairs of [[GirlInTheTower the tower]]. Predictably she [[StaircaseTumble goes over backwards and starts to roll down the stairs]] to a [[OwMyBodyPart litany of pained shrieks]], [[OffscreenCrash crashing sounds]] and [[ThatPoorCat distubed animals]]. Except it goes on... and on... and on... and on. It ends up taking her a full ''fifteen seconds'' to reach the bottom!
-->'''Princess Erpel:''' Wow! That's not some cheap two-kama curse!
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative:
-->'''Sadlygrove:''' Eva, that's the nicest thing ever written about me!\\
'''Evangelyne:''' That's the ''only'' thing ever written about you, big dummy.
* OwMyBodyPart: Eva falling down the stairs in season 1 episode 4.
-->'''Evangelyne:''' Aaah! My head! [=AaahaaA!=] Aaah! My back!
