'''''[[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/ Crimson Flag]]''''' is a fantasy furry action/adventure (semi-) medieval-themed webcomic about two tribes of anthropomorphic foxes that don't quite get along. The Red Reyn [red foxes] conquered Reynland long ago, and the Grays [gray foxes] found themselves owing fealty to a crown no longer their own. Regardless, peace followed for many a year after the long war. Until, of course, someone had a brilliant plan.

This comic provides examples of:
* TheArchmage: Archmage Kesnar, head of Caerreyn's magic academy. Lord Julian may be his equal, and Lucian is rather powerful as well.
* [[BulletProofVest Arrow Proof Vest]]: The one [[spoiler: Lucian's stepmother]] was wearing turns out to be [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=307 not quite thick enough]]. But it still helps her survive the attack.
* ArtEvolution: The first 116 comics were penciled by Tod Wills while Virmir wrote the script and colored, at [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=117 comic 117]] Virmir started sketching too (compare his more cartoony style to the comic [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=116 before]])
* ArtificialLimbs: Sir Bryce's "gauntlet", seemed to suggest that Ludovic took it off.
* AshFace: Voltar, after being blasted by the Baron's invention.
-->'''Baron:''' Hmmm...that was supposed to [[YourHeadAsplode explode your head]].
* {{Badass}}: Bryce, even as a [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=164 feral]]
* BalefulPolymorph: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=158 The Queen]] falls victim to this. Then [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=159 Bryce]] joins her. And even [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=189 Lucian]] and [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=229 Julian]].
* CallingYourAttacks: Somewhat parodied with [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=108 Voltar]].
* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's]] [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=114 Chakram]], [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=72 first appearance]]
* CloseCallHaircut: Lucian [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=136 here]]
* ConfusionFu: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=279 Voltar's]] primary method of 'fighting', since he has no actual combat skills.
* CoolHat: Voltar has quite a few.
* CoolShades: Bryce wears them, even as a feral.
* DistressedDamsel: The Queen, to an extent.
* EyepatchOfPower: Ludovic, implied that Bryce took it out. His dad had two of them and a hook hand.
* FantasticRacism: Reds against Greys
** [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=295 Merchants against Vendors]], [[RuleOfFunny mostly because that's just plain silly.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: Julian.
* {{Flashback}}: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=21 Early on]] Lucian recalls his father ordering him to kill a Muriden. A second, longer one starts [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=179 here]].
** And [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=210 another one]] showing Sierra's childhood with her spirit companion and the objections of their religion.
** And yet another one of [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=223 Julian's childhood]].
* FlyingWeapon: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=164 Bryce's sword]] turns out to be one after his feralization.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Lucian [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=104 says]] it would take a fire elemental to put a dent in the wards on the trees. Guess [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=110 what]] his cousin summons to fight them.
* FrickinLaserBeams
* [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale Fantasy Writers Have No Sense of Scale]]: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=11 Caerreyn's]] population of 700 is said to be "unimaginable".
* GenderBender: Yet [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=333 another]] use of transformation magic.
* {{Hammerspace}}: "I thought you checked their hats..."
-->''"[[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=143 I... I did...]]"''
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: The commodore, [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=289 by a dragon]]. Which raises some questions about [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=290 the following page]].
* IntrepidMerchant: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=69 Voltar]], to the point of trying to sell stuff to the adventurers who commandeered his ship.
** In his own idiosyncratic way, Voltar is arguably one of the most badass characters in the strip. And remember, his competition is the likes of [[MasterSwordsman Bryce]] and [[PlayingWithFire Lucian]]
* MadeOfIron: ''Everybody.'' Even Reyn kits are astoundingly tough.
-->'''Flashback!Lucian:''' Daaaad! Lucille's fire demon punched me through the wall again!
* MagicFeather: Voltar's "Amulet of Memory and Focus" is strongly hinted to be one.
-->'''Sierra''': He seemed so ''confident'' when he was wearing it. Probably sentimental...there're certainly no spells attached to it.
* MagicKnight: Bryce, though he doesn't cast spells just uses magic weapons. Many Grey warriors, given their innate talent for magic, even Lucian uses a sword.
* {{Magitek}}: Airships, and their cannons.
** Crystal Balls are used as phones; with similar "peak hours" restrictions as cellphone contracts.
* MuggingTheMonster: Early on some street urchins tried to mug [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=8 Lucian]].
* NiceHat: Voltar has a bit of a [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=54 collection]]. And [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=116 Lucian]] just barely stops him from adding Lucille's cap.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Come in two forms, wyverns that seem little more than pests, albeit hazardous to poorly armed airships, attracted to magic. And large dragons with three eyes that can assume Reyn form and either infect Reyn or KillAndReplace them judging by [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=289 these]] [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=290 two]] comics. However the [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=308 story Emiline's mother gave]] suggests [[spoiler: the latter.]]
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: Feralized Reyn can transmit their "condition" to others by [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=303 bite]], [[spoiler: and eventually learn to transform at will.]]
* PlayingWithFire: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=104 Most Grays know fire magic]], so that they can control the flames if the trees they live in catch alight.
* PowerLevels: By Caerreyn's ranking system Lucian is a level three mage, Sierra just recently achieved level two, and the archmage is level four. And even though the Greys have no formal system Julian is estimated to be equivalent to a level four.
* RaisedHandOfSurvival: A rather nasty variant. After the fight at the Relran Tree, a bird lands on the rubble of a fallen tower, only for [[PintSizedPowerhouse the Fen'dahai's]] hand to burst out and crush it.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Emiline, and in page 162, she gets upgraded to GlowingEyesOfDoom.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/forum/index.php?topic=1171.0 Archmage Kesnar]].
** And [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=211 the priest]] in Sierra's flashback.
* ShadowDiscretionShot:
** [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=4 Kyle's death]] early in the series.
** Years later [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=215 Ludovic decapitating a Red soldier]].
* ShoutOut: To ZeroWing. The Grey king contacts the red council (heralded by "We're getting a signal!) and says; "How are you gentlereyn?" This is replied to with "It's you!."
* SummonMagic: It is possible to summon elemental spirits, but this kind of magic is banned by the Red's religion as their goddess is a powerful spirit who sees the others as rivals.
* TechnicolorFire: Lucian sometimes casts [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=176 blue flames]].
* TreeTopTown: The [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=94 Relran Tree]].
* UnEqualRites: According to the Red's religion, SummonMagic is evil. However, that same magic is a long-held tradition of the Greys.
* UnsoundEffect:
** [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=186 *Flash-awaken-blink*]]
** [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=187 *Happy-flutter-tweet*, Da-da-DOOM, and *casual dust-off*]]
** [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=272 DOOM]]
* UnusualEuphemism: "Frazz", and "trees" (used specifically by Greys).
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=63 Emiline]].
** By [[http://crimsonflagcomic.com/comic.php?comicID=318 #318]] Lucian [[spoiler: has figured out how to turn back into a Reyn, and make improvements.]]
* ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld: Fantasy-type airships
