''Fafnir the Dragon'' is a Webcomic about the dragon of myth, Fafnir,and the people who summon him for their own means. How they use him, of course, is entirely up to them. The comic can get rather political at times, so be warned. Theoretically available [[http://fafnirthedragon.com/ here]], but the site is currently out of order.

!! This webcomic provides examples of the following tropes:
* ActionSurvivor: [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] in the post-apocalyptic future of the first storyline.
* AchillesHeel: Fafnir has godlike power. The problem is, to use that power effetively requires imagination, which is something that Fafnir is ''seriously'' lacking in. See LiteralGenie below.
* AGodAmI: Edward Catheter after drinking Fafnir's blood. [[spoiler: Of course, that's '''NOT''' how you're supposed to do it...]]
* ApocalypseHow: Caused by Anne Coulter in the first storyline, via a bioweapon bomb up her ass (no, really). Ends up as a class 3.
* ApocalypticLog: [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] made one to chronicle what happened as the country fell apart thanks to Eek.
* AuthorAppeal: The author of the comic freely admits that they are a bit obsessed with men from earlier times.
* BarackObama: Is one of the main characters of the first chapter
* BodyHorror: What happens to the victims of "Eek" virus. Also the "freaks" (who are, ironically, classic vampires-just cut from different folklore).
* BondOneLiner: [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] spouts off a few to the chompers.
* CannonFodder: Edward treats his fans this way, using them to slow down Fafnir.
--> ''"Well, everybody's dead but Edward has gained an extra two minutes of life!"''
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: Vlad Tepes vs the sparklepires]].
* DeathWorld: Eek results in Earth [[EverythingTryingToKillYou becoming one of these]].
* TheDitz: Atomica, with such a friendly attitude she makes Superman look like a NinetiesAntiHero. Too bad her stupidity usually get not just the criminals but any bystanders killed, without her even noticing. For example, ripping out a vault door and using it to protect hostages from being executed, then dropping it to chase after the fleeing criminal, crushing all the hostages.
* EnemyMine: In a villainous version, [[spoiler: the far right wing of the Republican Party with Al Qaeda.]]
* {{Engrish}}: Used by the crew of the Japanese whaling boat.
* ExplosiveStupidity: [[http://fafnirthedragon.com/2010/04/05/bloodsuckers-21/ The Pineapple Upside-Down Man.]]
* FanDisservice: Joe Lieberman. [[spoiler: Stephanie Meyers]].
* GiantSpider: In the Eek timeline, Cheney has mutated into a being who is what happens when you make a centaur out of one of these.
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath: The vampires have them.
* GoryIndiscretionShot: The comic is rather bloody.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Afteer so much time with no one else around to talk to, [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] isn't the sanest man around.
* HollywoodAcid: Rush Limbaugh gets this power.
* ImmuneToBullets: As a magical creature, Fafnir is more or less immune to anything that isn't magical.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Done by Vlad tepes to the sparklepires. Consider who he is, it's not exactly surprising.]]
* JerkJock: Edward "Catheter" comes across alot like this.
* KillerRabbit: The Frogzerkers.
* ItsAllAboutMe: The Twilight vampires are shown to be quite self absorbed.
* LiteralGenie: Fafnir. It's not malicious, though-he's simply not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and will take your commands literally.
* LoveCraftianSuperpower: What Cheney and Limbaugh end up with as a result of Eek.
* MacGuffin: Any peice of Fafnir's hoard can be used to summon him for nine days and nine nights. After which, he gets it back and leaves.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Done by, of all things, a whaling ship (with harpoons)...to almost no effect.
* MindControl: Intended goal of Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh, via virus. Doesn't work as intended...
* MoreDakka: Used by the Micheal Bay Saguinites...to no effect.
* MuggingTheMonster: [[AvertedTrope Surprising, not used literally.]] PlayedStraight, however, by the Twilight vampires, who attack a woman who owns a frog farm. Problem? [[spoiler:For one, the farm is also a Medieval Weapons Museum. For another, the frogs are KillerRabbit Frogzerkers.]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: AVERTED. The only time when someone's real name has not been used was in the Bloodsuckers are Not Sexy Chapter, and even then only for the fictional characters.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: Vlad Tepes]] curbstomping [[spoiler: the sparklepires]].
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: In-Universe example. Every dragon is different from each other, although to date none other than Fafnir have made an appearance.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: Obama becomes a bit of a President Action during the first arc.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Played with. The forgoing of vampire tradition to create new vamps makes them into classic vampires...from different folklores.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: They're caused by brain-sucking leeches.
* PaperThinDisguise: Used by Ann Coulter to infiltrate Obama's inauguration.
* RasputinDeath: Edward dies first by consuming the blood of a dragon (you're supposed to [[BloodBath bathe in it]], drinking it is a major no no), setting him on fire internally (flames literally erupt from his mouth and ass). He panics and runs, trying to find water, but falls through a skylight, landing in the middle of an amateur [[ChainsawGood chainsaw juggling contest]], getting his arms cut off and having a chainsaw go [[AssShove straight into his ass]]. He gets up and runs, trying to find water, and does, only for it to be a pool of [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Thor's Holy Water,]] causing him to burn and dissolve at the same time, until only his head is left, which [[{{Dracula}} Vlad the Impaler]] stabs with a sword. Vlad even states that, despite having imagined a thousand ways he could have killed Edward, this was better than ANY of them. [[YourVampiresSuck Then Vlad caps it all by pissing on Edward's now fleshless skull.]]
* RoomFullOfCrazy: More like Stephanie Meyer's HOUSE full of crazy. Also counts as a StalkerShrine.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[spoiler: Vlad Tepes]] most definitely counts.
* ShoutOut: To ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' in the Bloodsuckers are not Sexy Chapter. Along with a number of other, more hidden shoutouts throughout the comic.
* SpeedStripes: Appear when one of the vampires is going really fast.
* TakeThat: Multiple cases. The biggest one, however, is the entire Bloodsuckers are Not Sexy chapter.
* TakenForGranite: Happens to [[spoiler: Ann Coulter]] as Fafnir's way of neutralizing the bioweapon-he sends her back to Pompei right as the volcano erupts.
* TastesLikeChicken: [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] says this of the harpies from the post apocalyptic future.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Specifically,The Reason YourVampiresSuck [[http://fafnirthedragon.com/2010/06/28/bloodsuckers-44/ Speech]].
-->'''Vlad the Impaler:''' I AM NOT ONE OF YOU!!! I stuck people on giant stakes and ate dinner next to their twitching bodies... ''you sparkle''! See the difference? ... Vampires used to be creatures driven by hate and hunger and the need for ''dominance''! But ever since Meyer inherited [=Le-Scat's=] ''failed'' legacy you've all become so ''faggy'' that the mere sight of a new hair gel makes you squeal like a ''prison bitch in a pass-around''!
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: How [[spoiler: A.R.I.E.L. the terminator mermaid]] [[KillItWithFire finishes off]] [[spoiler: Stephanie Meyers]].
* ThrowThePin: In the "Bloodsuckers Are Not Sexy" arc, one of the vampires is an expert with grenades... only he wound up throwing the ''pins'' at [[{{Dracula}} Vlad the Impaler]]. It ends exactly how you'd expect.
* TimeTravel: One of Fafnir's powers, and used in the first chapter by BarackObama and Jon Stewart.
* TorchesAndPitchforks: In Jon Stewart's apocalytpic timeline, this was one of the results of the rapid spread of "Eek."
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: What does Fafnir like? Virgins tied to a rock or pole? Knights in shining armor? Nope! Dahmer's Hotwings.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The first story is set in a post-apocalyptic version.
* TheVirus: Causes the first storyline, related to ApocalypseHow.
* YourVampiresSuck: The entire "Bloodsuckers are Not Sexy" chapter is one massive tirade against Twilight-style vampires. [[spoiler: The one who kills them all? Vlad the Impaler.]]
* ZergRush: Edward uses his [[WeHaveReserves masses of new converts]] to slow down [[spoiler: Vlad Tepes]] and Fafnir long enough for the sun to rise, letting them die almost to a man in the proccess. Also done with the Twi-Moms.
