''The Quest'' is a WebOriginal Superhero series created by Crimson Vision Studios, centering around the adventures of The Crimson Blur, a LightningBruiser on a quest to become a true hero. Along the way he joins forces with a number of other heroes, mostly 'Volvers' who obtained their powers from experiments at Vector Labs. Season 2 saw him officially join a team known as the Dreaded Heroes, founded by IntrepidReporter turned Mayor, Bruce Balbowski.

----
!!This show provides examples of:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Bruce calls the Jade Sorcerer the ''Green Wizard.'' While taking the mix up with a lot more dignity than most, he is obviously not pleased.
* AlternateUniverse: The V-Portal leads to one that nullifies the powers of Volvers.
* ArchEnemy: Crimson and Diesel.
* AuthorAppeal: Crimson Vision Studios LOVE Nanodots.
** They can even be used to defend against magic!
* BadassNormal: Bruce, as of Warzone Part II.
* BadBoss: Diesel.
* BadFuture: Splice rules it, by the looks of things.
* BigBad: Diesel in Season One, Splice in Season Two, and now it would appear to be the Jade Sorcerer.
* BigDamnHeroes: The Detective attempts this in his introduction. He almost screws it up when he is mind controlled into leaving.
* BigGood: Bruce Balbowski, Mayor and leader of the Dreaded Heroes.
* CivvieSpandex: A number of costumes are casual clothing and sunglasses. Blur's costume is a red jacket and sunglasses.
* CoolTeacher: The Detective.
* DemotedToDragon: Diesel to Splice in Season Two.
* DeathByOriginStory: Crimson's father.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Splice, along with most of the Dreaded Heroes, is apaprently killed off-screen by Dr. Vector. Especially unexpected as he was the season's BigBad up until that stage.
* FaceHeelTurn: Crimson when The Jade Sorcerer dupes him into becoming The Shadow Blur.
** And now [[spoiler: Hinokin becoming Infernus.]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Jade Sorcerer teleports Bruce on top of a mountain so he and Crimson can face each other uninterrupted. As they prepare for battle, Bruce runs down to rejoin the fight.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: Hinokin defeats Shadow Blur, stating that he joined the Dreaded Heroes to save the world, before promptly stealing his Dark Item and joining the bad guys, without a hint of irony.]]
** WordOfGod has mentioned that the Items beckon people to wear them, as seen earlier with Crimson, but they cut the scene showing that with Hinokin for time.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Bruce Balbowski.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Bruce Balbowski is a GloryHound who can never just say his first name and can be even an outright bully to some people, but he's honestly trying to do the right thing and save lives.
* KillEmAll: Vector Labs eliminates almost all of the Dreaded Heroes, who up until TheReveal at the end of Season 2, had seemingly just stopped appearing.
* KnightOfCerebus: Inverted with Bruce. The series is more or less a serious (if somewhat goofy) superhero story overall, but whenever he shows up things get a whole lot more amusing.
* MadScientist: Splice and Dr. Vector. Crimson's dad provides a more heroic example.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: The aptly titled 'Upgrades' that give Crimson better control over his speed; they take the form of a device strapped to his arm.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: ''The Dreaded Heroes.'' To be dreaded by criminals and supervillains of course, but the name is still rather imposing.
* PowerCrystal: The crystal given to Crimson by his father, containing the power to grant any and all super powers.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Bruce Balbowski, yet again. Though in founding a superhero team, he does have some bragging rights.
* SquishyWizard: Averted by Jade Sorcerer. Take away his staff, and he can still put up a good fight.
* SuperPoweredEviLSide: Shadow Blur.
* SuperSpeed: Crimson, though he seems to have trouble turning. Apparently Detective makes him do laps around the world as a punishment.
* SuperStrength: Diesel.
* TheBigGuy: Diesal again.
* TookALevelInBadass: Bruce was a self admitted FailureHero when he started trying to help out in Season 2. Come War Zone Part II, he manages to defeat Infernus!
** Stealth in Season Two, having more or less gained invisibility.
