'''''[[http://www.oglaf.com/ Oglaf]]''''' is an often seriously {{NSFW}} webcomic by Trudy Cooper and Doug Bayne. Most of the episodes (called "stories") are single non-sequential pages, though some stretch out longer; the very first one was eight pages long. The comic started out as a gag-a-week work, but slowly started including longer {{Story Arc}}s, most of the time focusing on Ivan and his never-ending torment at the hands of Mistress and Sandoval, the Ambassador of Xoan. These arcs appear to be (very) slowly coming together into a single overarching plot.

[[ViewersAreMorons Just a note]]: Click "Next page" to see [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the next page of a story. "Next story" to see the next story.]] The last page of each story has a small diagonal cutout at the bottom right-hand corner. Also, some stories have an epilogue that is behind a separate link.

Most strips are very, ''very'' NSFW; the strips that ''are'' work-safe are the ones slapped with a warning label. However, the comic also features many gags that are quite innocuous or just "immature".

Recurring characters include (but aren't limited to):

* '''Mistress''': A cruel dictator, with some very serious magical powers, usually busy either ruling her nation (which mostly consists of appeasing allies and receiving tributes from neighbors) or finding new ways to torture her slaves. When she's not doing either, she torments Ivan for giggles.
* '''Ivan''': Mistress' sorcery apprentice and the ostensible protagonist. Not allowed to have sex (or even wank) under castle regulations. To make sure he doesn't get distracted from that rule, Mistress cursed him with walking, talking semen. [[spoiler:As of 5/22/11, [[PutOnABus in a magical]] [[ConvenientComa sleep]].]]
* '''Cumsprite''': Ivan's walking, talking (or more accurately, running and yelling) semen, which runs to Mistress and tattles whenever released, regardless of how it happened.
* '''Sandoval''': The Ambassador of Xoan. Staying with Mistress as a political guest (and apparently one she wants to please), he sexually harasses Ivan whenever he's bored. He also seems to be sexually attracted to food, especially desserts.
* '''[[AllThereinTheManual Greir]]''': A female adventurer. The comic's resident DeadpanSnarker. Having not been named in-comic, she's also known as the Lesbian Mercenary. She's considered "impervious to fun," although she does enjoy victory.
* '''Oglaf''': A farm boy. TheChosenOne, although chosen for ''what'', we're not sure.
* '''Ponce de Leon & assistant''': Two adventurers in search of the Fountain of Youth. [[spoiler:They haven't been seen since the Fountain of Girl incident.]]
* '''The Snow Queen''': The personification of Winter. Satisfying her is necessary for Winter to end and for Spring to start. Greir gladly takes up the challenge.
* '''Kronar''', [[ManlyGay Son of Man]]: A mighty barbarian warrior with rigid, unfailing honor. His tribe is made up of [[HomosexualReproduction men who breed with one another]].
* '''Vanka''': Female thief. Exceptionally clever, light-fingered and voluptuous. One half of a BattleCouple with a male thief.
* '''Navaan''': Female vampire. Captures Ivan in Vanorva with the intent to kill him, but soon finds him useful for... [[DatingCatwoman other things]]. [[spoiler:Later escaped Vanorva and set herself up as a "doctor," despite having no idea what that is.]]
* '''The Dwarves''': Three little men with bad teeth, limited [[spoiler:fukken]] vocabularies, and lunatic enthusiasm for creating bizarre and [[spoiler:fukken]] awesome magical items.
* '''Morag the Immortal''': A female religious warrior who, true to her name, is immortal. She will fight for any religion, and [[spoiler:loses her entire body save for the head]] doing so.
* '''Thessaly and Tristram''': A pair of princes who are the sons of a [[TheCaligula Caligula]] king and lament having to satisfy his absurd whims.
* '''The talking fox''': A tricky and sometimes helpful fox with a wall-eyed stare and perpetual grin.
* '''Mistertique''': A masked super-hero like character who represents the masculine mystique. Enjoys setting women up to want to have sex with him, then leaving before doing the deed.
* '''Blonde girl with the hat''': A yet-unnamed character who enjoys teasing others. She appears to be part of Vanka's crew, as she was incarcerated with her and they enjoyed a spirited rapport.
* '''Wish Dolly''': A talking doll with the ability to grant wishes. JackassGenie extraordinaire.
* '''King Blowjob''': '{{Cursed|WithAwesome}}' to be the best at blowjobs, he now rules over a 'peaceful fellatiocracy'.

----
!!''Oglaf'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AbsoluteCleavage:
** Mistress' outfits frequently go this route, and that's at their tamest.
** Vanka likewise. As seen in several strips, it's mainly for ease of access.
* ActionGirl:
** The adventurer Greir of [[http://www.oglaf.com/meltwater/ Meltwater]], Reward, Solstice and [[http://www.oglaf.com/ravine/ Ravine]].
** Kronar's "son" is able to tear apart wolves with her bare hands...a few minutes after being born.
* ActionSurvivor: Ivan, out of necessity... [[spoiler:until he's put in the magical coma. May still qualify, since the spell was apparently intended to kill him.]]
* AesopAmnesia: [[http://oglaf.com/swordmaster/1/ Despite being told to do things piece by piece]], the Sword Master's apprentice doesn't learn his lesson even after winning a fight with it. '''[[DopeSlap SLAP!]]'''
* AllAreEqualInDeath: The god [[http://oglaf.com/sithrak/ Sithrak]] will supposedly treat everyone equally, by torturing them forever.
* AllThatGlitters: In "Delivery" this was used to {{subvert|edTrope}} SaveThePrincess. The hero still gets to [[StandardHeroReward marry the prince]] in the end.
-->"Don't you see? The princess was you all along!"
* AllMenArePerverts
* AllWomenAreLustful: It's that kind of world, but there are a few exceptions: notably, Greir seems to be more focused on other matters and Morag the Immortal only succumbs to this when mesmerized by the [[spoiler:Funsnake]].
* ALoveToDismember: [[http://oglaf.com/salome/1/ Salome]] is still at it apparently.
** She did that ''[[NeverLiveItDown once]]''! It was ''years'' ago!
*** [[spoiler: [[http://oglaf.com/salome/epilogue/ Oh really]]...?]]
* AltText: Please note that each strip has not only an ALT text but also a TITLE text, both different. Which one you see when mousing over it is dependent on your browser -- Google Chrome, for example, shows the Alt. Text. Only for the first few comics (which possibly didn't have Alt. Text) does the Title Text show up.
* AmazonBrigade:
** The Mistress' female guards in their revealing outfits.
** The women in [[http://oglaf.com/glamazon-way/ The Glamazon Way]].
* AmazingTechnicolourPopulation: The Land of Indulgence has one.
* AndIMustScream:
** A wizard who transforms himself into a leather catsuit, and starts being eaten by a goat.
** The 'statues' in "Pork Chisel", who are apparently [[RapeAsComedy being rented out]] by the guy who [[TakenForGranite turned them to stone]] in the first place.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Of winter, obviously, but also of many more abstract concepts...most of which involve having sex with them. (It's that kind of world).
* AnythingThatMoves: And quite a few things that don't (or can't).
* {{Asexuality}}: The [[StarfishAliens very-alien]] [[DeadlyDoctor 'doctors']], though it doesn't stop them using some very [[OrificeInvasion invasive]] treatments.
** On the other hand, they consider sexual inexperience to be a life-threatening medical condition ([[{{Foreshadowing}} and maybe have a point]]). [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Blue And Orange Sexuality]], perhaps?
* AssInAmbassador: Sandoval, who is no worse than Mistress but at least she is no ambassador.
* AssShove: With a fire wand, no less.
* ArtEvolution: Compare the character art in [[http://www.oglaf.com/cumsprite/3/ one of the earliest strips]] to [[http://oglaf.com/rapunzel/3/ one not that much later]]. Notice the difference in both outlining and shading, as well as character proportions.
* ArtifactOfAttraction: Mistress' magic box that makes you desperately desire whatever's kept in it. She uses it to trick the Apprentice into utterly debasing himself with the Xoan Ambassador in exchange for a pinecone, only for [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the effect to wear off]] the moment he takes it out of the box.
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: [[spoiler:[[CursedWithAwesome Remember that guy from]] [[http://oglaf.com/gifted/ Gifted]]? [[http://oglaf.com/gifted2/ He's that good]]]]
* BadassBoast: Vanka makes two (both about sex, and one with the accomplishment to match) in fingers.
* BaldWomen: The succubi. Also {{Horny Devil}}s.
* TheBaroness: The Mistress is definitely a Sexpot, but depending on who you are (i.e. a [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday very straight]] guy), her intentions might be nasty, placing her under the Rosa Klebb variety.
* BearsAreBadNews: Especially if they're [[http://www.oglaf.com/ulric/ Devil Bears]] or [[http://www.oglaf.com/northerner/ Flatbears!]] (Though normal bears are [[http://www.oglaf.com/frog-3/ already]] [[http://www.oglaf.com/queenspring/ bad]] [[http://www.oglaf.com/brackenwife/ enough.]])
** [[http://oglaf.com/roughtrade/ Magical talking bear prostitutes]] ([[spoiler:they don't actually know what "prostitute" means]])
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In "Vorpal Blade", it turns out that having a cock enchanted so that it makes a woman orgasm instantly is not all it's cracked up to be, since it means that sex is also over instantly. [[CantHaveSexEver The guy cannot even get any satisfaction otherwise]], since ''any'' touching of his cock causes orgasm (and then sleep) in any body part that touches it, [[CursedWithAwesome including his own]]. Even walls and buildings fall apart when he tries to hump them for relief.
** A plain young woman wished on the Wish Dolly for beauty, and is now [[SoBeautifulItsACurse so beautiful]] that guys are too intimidated to bed her.
* BedTrick:
** Planned in "Cornwalling", but then rejected in favor of a [[GenderBender more practical]] alternative.
** Also attempted in "Homecoming", but there was a change in plans.
* TheBerserker: Suffers cruel discrimination in The Pink Haze.
* BestialityIsDepraved: "[[http://oglaf.com/husbandry/1/ Husbandry]]" treats this rather matter-of-factly.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Just when you begin to think Mistress rules through nothing more than sexual deviance, odd devices, and a lot of willing retainers, [[http://www.oglaf.com/undercroft/1/ this happens]].
* {{BFS}}: Possibly the only ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin literal]]'' example.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Averted in "Heterogeneous". The fair maiden in question seems relieved rather than disappointed when a centaur turns out to be endowed like a human instead of... well.
* BigNo: Believers in [[GodIsEvil Sithrak]] have good reason to [[http://oglaf.com/outreach/ take deaths especially hard]]. (SFW link.)
* {{Bishonen}}:
** The Xoan Ambassador, Sandoval.
** As the comic progresses, Ivan the Apprentice starts moving from the goofy category to the very pretty category.
* BlackComedyRape: of all genders and species, by all genders and species. (Again; it's that kind of world.)
* TheBlank: The most beautiful fairy of all.
* BlessedWithSuck: Oglaf, the chosen one, has the power to... ejaculate in the form of words. Too bad he can't read.
** And perhaps ''the'' most literal example [[http://oglaf.com/gifted/ we'll ever find]] - a man "cursed" to be the best at blowjobs, despite never having done one before. He eventually makes use of it to [[ItMakesSenseInContext defeat an invading army to become King]].
** Later on we meet a man who thanks to [[JackassGenie Wish Dolly]] has the ability to make anyone he penetrates orgasm instantly. And fall asleep. As you might imagine, he's quite sexually frustrated.
*** The latter two eventually meet. HilarityEnsues.
* BlindingBangs: The goat-herder girl and Ivan's [[spoiler:temporary replacement]].
* BodyguardBabes: The Mistress's soldiers.
* BooksThatBite: The Book of Love. At least, it tries to eat parts of Ivan...
* BraidsOfAction: Greir has the paired variety, hanging down from either side of her head. Interestingly, only her bangs are braided this way, the rest of her hair hangs freely.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: With a dash of ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne.
-->'''Sexbakery Vendor:''' Have you tried our [[BestialityIsDepraved horse bukkake]] carob muffins?\\
'''Customer:''' Eww... carob.
* BrickJoke:
** The wizard that transformed in "Cornwalling" reappears in a similar position in a more recent comic.
** When Ivan refuses to go for the offered antidote and instead threatens to tell everyone that Sandoval poisoned him in "Premature Requiem", Sandoval sees this as romantic and offers him a locket as evidence instead. In "Infffirmary", we see two other patients showing similar symptoms to Ivan's, clutching lockets. Busy night, ambassador?
** Ivan's tattletale jizz turned into one on at least two occasions.
*** On a third occasion, [[spoiler:Navaan is disappointed when someone else's fails to do so.]]
* BunglingInventor: The dwarves.
* {{Buttmonkey}}: '''Ivan'''. His life is a never-ending series of humiliations by Mistress, the Xoan ambassador, and...well, pretty much everyone in the castle.
* CallBack: The portrait of the Mistress being painted later shows up in the room of tributes, flying skulls, severed cocks and all.
* CannotKeepASecret: Used as a SpoofAesop [[http://oglaf.com/undercroft/ here.]]
* CantHaveSexEver: Ivan [[http://www.oglaf.com/cumsprite/5/ isn't even allowed to masturbate]], lest he gets in trouble. He did find a way around it, though.
* CatFight: When Vanka meets Greir. Humorously, they both agree to skip the boring part at the beginning and go [[GirlOnGirlIsHot straight to the sex]].
* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: Not that Sticklebark actually wears pants.
* CerebusSyndrome: ''Oglaf'' has always had re-occurring characters and some gags built on top of previous ones, but as time went by the strips involving Ivan in particular shifted into gradually longer multi-week arcs, which put him in ever more dire situations. Often still funny, but also part of longer and more serious stories. As time went on, even more characters have been thrown into dire-situation plots, including Greir and Navaan.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Greir's thing now appears to be that she hates fun, and doesn't seem to understand the concept. But in her earlier appearances, particularly "[[LesYay Meltwater]]," she clearly had at least some idea what it was.
* ChekhovsGun: The [[spoiler:Fake Death]] in the Fun God arc.
* TheChosenOne: Oglaf, the shepherd boy. It's just too bad he can't read.
* ChristmasEpisode: Saturnalia, actually.
* CliffHanger: Rapunzel (resolved in the next week's episode).
* ClosetKey: What Greir of the Meltwater arc has become for the Snow Queen evidently.
* CloudCuckooLander:
** Many characters in the comic suffer from minor cases of crazy (with poor Ivan as the OnlySaneMan).
** The Xoan ambassador seems to be a very definite case.
** Navaan seems to have taken the spotlight for this. Fruit Viking, anyone?
* ClusterFBomb: [[http://www.oglaf.com/stalker/2/ Fucking fuckers.]] (Safe aside from the bombs.)
** This and building ridiculous sex toys is pretty much all the dwarves in the strip do.
* TheComicallySerious: Greir. She has a story arc where she tries to overcome her inadequate grasp of the concept of "fun."
* ComicSutra: The list of "the slut's" grotesque and amazing talents includes "combat ejaculation", "self-saucing ([[UpToEleven 7 flavors!]])", and "flang."
** Culminated in a literal comic sutra, "Ivan and Navaan's 'Doesn't Count' Kama Sutra," which illustrated sexual positions that allowed the participants to remain [[TechnicalVirgin technical virgins]]. Published as a bonus to the graphic novel.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: Played for laughs in "[[http://oglaf.com/goldensongbird/2/ The Golden Songbird]]"; the gullible brother Thessaly runs off with the Talking Fox to find the Golden Songbird, his OnlySaneMan brother Tristram sulks at the ridiculousness of it all. Naturally, Thessaly comes back with the bird, is greeted as a hero and wins his father's favour. Tristram, annoyed at the smug fox, goes out and buys a pack of hounds.
* ContinuityNod:
** In "Infffirmary", you can see two men with masks and lockets.
** Ever since "Hilting," Kronar has been depicted [[{{Fingore}} with no fingers]] on one hand.
** In "The Golden Songbird," Thessaly states that they need to find a hot princess with a mouth like a sea anemone. Think the [[HumanoidAbomination young lady]] from "Romance" qualifies?
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment:
** Inflicted by Mistress on her underlings for various infractions.
--->Punitive pearl necklace. Tits out, Captain.
** Just before Kronar throws his infant "son" to the wolves, he makes her wear the "Bow of Shame." [[spoiler:The bow survives. The wolves don't.]]
* CrapsackWorld: Sexy, but crapsack.
* CrazyPrepared:
** [[http://www.oglaf.com/chasm/ This guy]], although he probably shouldn't have revealed it.
** Vanka, who even booby-traps [[spoiler:her own vagina]].
* CryingWolf: [[http://www.oglaf.com/wolf/ The wolf got him]].
* CunningLikeAFox: The {{Trickster}} TalkingFox with a disarmingly stupid-looking perpetual grin.
* CursedWithAwesome:
** [[http://www.oglaf.com/gifted/1/ Literally cursed to give the best fellatio in the world.]] If he starts giving fellatio, he risks [[NeverLiveItDown being known as that one guy who is really good at fellatio]]; if he does not start, [[MortonsFork then he will live knowing he has an awesome talent that goes to waste]]. [[spoiler:[[BrickJoke Once he uses his talent]], [[AwesomeMomentOfCrowning he becomes king]].]]
** Another fellow goes to the same curse-giving wraith (who [[VillainsOutShopping actually owns his own]] [[BazaarOfTheBizarre Curse Shop]]) in an attempt to {{invoke|dTrope}} and {{exploit|edTrope}} this trope. Guess the creature's rep for accidentally-beneficial curses got around...
* CuteLittleFangs: [[http://www.oglaf.com/nightfall/ Navaan]]. Her friends also have them, though "cute" may be stretching it a bit when paired with {{Slasher Smile}}s...
* TheCutie: The Snow Queen. Especially [[http://www.oglaf.com/justice/1/ here]].
* CutenessProximity: Servants of the Mistress who fail to do what they're told tend to either die or wish they had. Her response to seeing her infant horror ''try'' to rampage, however, is, "Hahaha! Look at it go!"
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Grier.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Ivan the Apprentice, constantly, even though for the longest time he was forbidden even this. He managed to find a way to beat the system though. ''Oglaf'' may be the only thing that's not ''AmericanPie'' that managed to turn it into an important recurring plot point.
* DeadlyDisc[=/=]RingsOfDeath: [[http://oglaf.com/glamazon-way/ The Throwing Anus]] (worksafe, as it's just [[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena's]] chakram).
* DeadpanSnarker:
** Sandoval's valet/assistant in "Lament."
** Greir does this quite a bit.
* DeconstructiveParody:
** Of CryingWolf, [[http://oglaf.com/wolf/1/ as seen]] on the trope page.
** Of the AndroclesLion (specifically, the Kindly Hunter variation), [[http://www.oglaf.com/kindlyhunter/1/ here]].
* DeconstructorFleet: The one-off strips especially tend to mock fantasy cliches, porn cliches, or both, but can even get into mocking abstract concepts like gendered language (or abstract concepts in general).
* DepravedHomosexual: Ambassador Sandoval of Xoan, so very much.
* DistractedByTheSexy:
** A very fortunate example in "Snakeskin". Though apparently it makes something else turn to stone.
** Another example is "Lassie"; this one not so lucky.
* DistractedByMyOwnSexy: Navaan's hideout is filled with her own grinning Fake Death corpses, stripped naked and [[ScrewYourself posed with each other]].
--->'''Navaan:''' Ehehe... this must look pretty vain, doesn't it?
* DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm: The shapeshifter trying to pay off Greir, although, from what we've seen, it's likely it's not ''just'' him.
* DopeSlap: [[http://oglaf.com/swordmaster/1/ The Sword Master]]. [[AltText "He's also a bit of a slapmaster"]]
** The Sword Master returns in the "Punching above Your Weight" story... and he, [[RunningGag of course]], [[DopeSlap Dope Slaps]] his apprentice again in it.
* DungeonBypass: [[http://oglaf.com/failsafe/1/ Nobody expects the labyrinth's guardian to escape.]]
* EarWorm: In-universe example: [[http://www.oglaf.com/lute/ Lute]].
* EldritchAbomination: [[http://oglaf.com/blanket/1/ It's only a nameless horror until you name it]].
* EndlessWinter: Winter lasts until the Snow Queen is... satiated. She's not villainous, but is seen as an obstacle.
* EnfantTerrible: That is one badass [[http://oglaf.com/son-of-kronar/2/ baby]].
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The Mistress is known only by her title. Ivan is generally referred to as "apprentice," and Sandoval is usually just called "the Xoan Ambassador".
* EveryoneIsBi: Not quite ''everyone'', but even the ones who aren't tend to be fairly open-minded about it.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Subverted like crazy.
** Well, it would be, [[http://www.oglaf.com/princess/ but...]].
** Being an actual princess is bullshit...
** Unless you're male; then it's wonderful.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: [[http://oglaf.com/shark/1/ No, my powers work on good people too]].
* ExactWords: [[http://www.oglaf.com/rapunzel/3/ The Mistress doesn't specify what she's saying no to]].
* ExtremeOmniGoat: [[http://oglaf.com/catsuit/ They'll even eat catsuits.]]
* ExtremeOmnisexual:
** Zeus, even ''more'' so than in the myths. Here, he turns into a golden shower to seduce Danae, but then ''decides he's more attracted to the water in a bucket she's washing herself with''.
** The Xoan ambassador has a fling with a tray of... well, not dessert ''now''. He really can't see anyone wanting to eat it anymore.
** Did we mention it's that kind of world?
* EyesAlwaysShut: Kronar the barbarian, except when showing rage or shock.
** The Mistress occasionally opens her eyes, but seems to have them closed more often than not.
* EyeBeams: [[http://www.oglaf.com/badfalcon/ The Mistress's falcon]].
* EyepatchOfPower: Vanka's scarf.
* FallingInLoveMontage: Anyone under the influence of the "Potion of Girlfriend" has one of these with a fetching redhead named Felicia.
* TheFairFolk: Tall, pale, long flowing hair, pointy ears, beautiful features, capricious nature, lusty, enjoys tormenting mortals... Sandoval is some sort of elven noble, and not the "nice" kind.
* AFateWorseThanDeath: Mistress is fond of coming up with these - at least when her laser-falcon doesn't ruin them.
* FauxYay: Mistress' guard corps, according to the Lizard of Guilt. Not that it seems to make a difference...
* FishEyes: The dwarves are sometimes drawn with these ("Brass Knobs", "tool", "Ring of Bliss", "Cavalcade of Wonders")
* FisherKing: The Snow Queen, as satisfying her seems to bring about the start of spring.
* FlockOfWolves: Shapeshifters assassinate the king... [[RightHandVersusLeftHand who had been replaced by a shapeshifter]] of the same race, that one guy awkwardly recognizes.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: In "Burning Jewels of Death", where [[ManlyGay Kronar]] is tied down by another character and his {{mooks}}, demanding Kronar's "submission". Kronar makes his escape through strength and brutality alone, and is [[InLoveWithYourCarnage regarded as magnificent]] for doing so.
* FountainOfYouth:
** Played with in the strips dedicated to Ponce de Leon's search for said fountain with his dowdy assistant. They eventually do find a magical fountain, only to realize too late it's actually [[spoiler:[[http://www.oglaf.com/fountain-of-girl/1/ the Fountain of Girl]]. Well, at least they were young that way too..]].
** There might also be a [[http://www.oglaf.com/fountain-of-doubt/ Fountain of Doubt]], though they're not sure.
** Then there's the [[http://www.oglaf.com/fountain-of-death/ Fountain Of Death]]... er, I mean, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Fountain Of Water So Delicious, Even Dead People Want It]].
* FridgeBrilliance : An in-universe example from [[http://www.oglaf.com/deincarnation/5/ Greir in this strip]]. [[spoiler: "It Takes a Fake Death to kill a fake god. And you figured it out." ]] This moment is subverted soon afterward, however.
** Further brilliance: The monks worship ''luck'', and their faith was rewarded.
* GenderBender: The wizard in "Cornwalling", and also the effect of the [[http://www.oglaf.com/fountain-of-girl/1/ Fountain of Girl]].
* GeniusDitz: Navaan. She is perceptive enough to notice things such as [[http://www.oglaf.com/grill/2/ disguised statues]] and is even able to understand specifically how to deal with a severed immortal's head without lungs despite believing that the function of a doctor is to "solve mysteries."
* GeniusLoci: Parodied in Sanctuary.
-->What's a region need to do to get recognized in this town?
* GenreSavvy:
** Monks from Lapis Lazuli weren't until they were taught a very painful (and sexy) lesson.
** The travelers in Naiads.
* GetOut: [[http://www.oglaf.com/potion/ The potion seller]].
* GladiatorGames: Played with in "Sport" when the emperor decides to TakeAThirdOption.
* {{Glamour}}: Deconstructed [[http://oglaf.com/unattainable/1/ here]].
* GodGuise: [[spoiler:The malevolent god worshipped by the fools' cult]] is an ''inversion''; a real god disguised as a fake god according to one of its followers. It ''looks'' like a bunch of people in a lousy costume when it's actually a very real and very dangerous deity. [[spoiler:An immortal warrior found this out the hard way and lost her sword and everything below her neck for her troubles.]]
* GodIsEvil: Several cases appear, although Sithrak for one [[spoiler:turns out to be merely careless, despite the certainty of his believers]].
* GroinAttack: The Giant Cockbats, though not in the traditional fashion.
** If a man attempts traditional sexual intercourse with the Snow Queen, he...''[[LiterallyShatteredLives suffers]]''.
* HatesEveryoneEqually: [[http://oglaf.com/sithrak/ Sithrak]], the god who tortures ''everyone'' forever after they die, regardless if they're good or evil.
* HeManWomanHater:
** The armourer in "Breastplate". He makes [[http://www.oglaf.com/breastplate/ really good armor]], though.
** Kronar and all of his fellows.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: in ''[[http://oglaf.com/abyss/1/ The Abyss]]''.
* HomosexualReproduction: Kronar's bloodline has been free from woman's taint for a hundred generations, with shades of MisterSeahorse and NoManOfWomanBorn, as well.
* HornyDevils: Mistress's pair of captive succubi. It's not (yet) known what they would do if she ever unchained them. One of Ivan's [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment duties]] is to oil their naked bodies twice a day.
* HumanoidAbomination: For a given value of humanoid. Complete with tentacles.
* IceCreamKoan: The incarnation of Enlightenment in "Justice":
-->'''Enlightenment:''' Questions are sand in a bowl of rice. Poverty is the daughter of the silk merchant.\\
'''Man:''' I'm not stupid, you know! Just because I don't understand you doesn't mean I'm stupid!
* AnIcePerson: The Snow Queen. Though she really is very nice.
* IKnowYourTrueName: Because I've just changed it. That's the power of appellomancers, name wizards: they change someone's name and consequently [[http://www.oglaf.com/branding/ their nature]].
* IncompatibleOrientation:
** The Ambassador has made several advances towards the Apprentice, who definitely prefers women. This seems not to bother the Ambassador at all.
** The bounty huntress Greir seems to be ladies-only, but has been hit on at least twice by men (one a shapeshifter who quickly and [[EpicFail awkwardly]] attempts to rectify the situation).
* ImmortalityHurts: [[ThePaladin The Immortals]] aren't immune to injury at all, though they do at least seem to have a very high pain tolerance. At one point Morag is beheaded, and only able to describe how it happened when somebody blows air up through her severed windpipe. WordOfGod says [[LosingYourHead she's still just a head.]]
* TheInformant: Ivan's curse is that his semen comes to life and runs to tell the Mistress what he's been doing.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Sheela Na Gig asks 'Is there another entrance?' Bonus humor if you know what a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheela_Na_Gig sheela na gig]] is.
* InsaneTrollLogic:
** Eating the world's most beautiful women does not [[http://www.oglaf.com/notches/1/ make a crocodile]] the world's most beautiful woman.
** Two adventurers get trapped by an owlbear, and the male adventurer who had studied herbivores decides to deal with it in the only rational way - [[MateOrDie out-breed it]], because at least some of their offspring would live. [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike The female adventurer thinks it's a]] ''great'' idea, only for the owlbear to successfully turn the man off [[CrazyEnoughToWork by saying un-sexy words]], foiling their plan.
--->'''Woman:''' No wonder it's the apex predator.
** The proper payback for a demon bear stealing a man's wife is, of course, to steal the demon bear's wife and force the man to marry it.
* TheImmodestOrgasm: Taken to its logical extreme [[SerialEscalation and further]] in Fresh Horses.
* ImpossibleThief: Vanka in Fingers.
* InsultToRocks / InsultFriendlyFire: After slaying the fun god, Greir addresses its cultists...
--->'''Greir:''' If they ask about fun, tell them fun is a filthy parasite.
--->'''Navaan:''' As a parasite, I take offense to that.
* ItAmusedMe: The philosophy behind most of Mistress's actions.
* ItsAllMyFault: [[spoiler:The Lizard of Guilt, appropriately enough.]]
* ItsAlwaysSpring: In "Tool", due to the dwarves inventing a cold-proof vibrator and giving it to the Snow Queen.
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: "Don't you see? The princess was you all along!"
* IWasQuiteALooker: Subverted in [[http://www.oglaf.com/fountain-of-girl/1/ fountain of girl]].
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Greir is fond of simple methods. Primarily making a quip, tying someone up, and punching them until they tell her what she needs to know.
* JerkassGenie: He'll grant any wish, but will punish you if you don't make the one he ''wants'' you to make.
** And now, his colleague, Wishing Dolly.
* JerkassGods: [[http://oglaf.com/sithrak/ If the sacred texts of the cult of Sithrak the Gibberer are to be believed,]] Sithrak is downright [[GodIsEvil Evil]]. Then one of them dies, and it turns out that [[spoiler:[[http://oglaf.com/outreach/2/ Sithrak was just going through a phase when he wrote that stuff.]] However, the fact that he left his sadistic adolescent {{wangst}} lying around with the status of holy writ does make him a bit of a jerkass.]]
* JustLikeRobinHood: Parodied [[http://www.oglaf.com/relief/ here]]. He steals from the rich, all right, and he ''kinda'' gives it to the poor, but his methods of distribution are a bit unorthodox.
* JustSoStory: [[http://oglaf.com/justso/ This wide-eyed youth seems fond of telling them.]] Referenced by both the comic title, "Just So," and the TitleText which gives his name as Rudyard.
* LawfulStupid: Ulric the Just. If a demon-bear steals your wife, Ulric will dispense justice... by stealing the bear's wife for you.
* LeaveNoSurvivors: Kronar [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] this [[http://www.oglaf.com/survivor/1/ here.]] Unfortunately, he cannot quite seem to get the terror of it right.
* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: There are two editions of "Book One": the regular edition, and a [[http://www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=TO&Product_Code=OG-BOOK01&Category_Code=OG signed edition]] with a hand-drawn bookplate inside the front cover featuring the character of your choice. The signed edition costs $10 extra and actually is so popular that extra character options have been added over time and often end up sold out.
* LiteralMinded: A shapeshifter, trying to palm Greir off with sex in lieu of a reward, asks her what her type is. When she replies "I'm after a hot woman -- voluptuous -- head is a ''big bag of freaken' gold!''", it obliges. Its attempts to talk dirty suggest it thinks she has a MoneyFetish.
* LittleMissBadass: Kronar's [[http://www.oglaf.com/son-of-kronar/2/ "son"]].
* LogicBomb: A simple one, but then the dwarves aren't the most sophisticated creatures around.
* LovePotion:
** The LoveAtFirstSight variety [[http://www.oglaf.com/potion/ at its most literal]].
** There is also the "Potion of Girlfriend" which is also a LotusEaterMachine.
* LoveTriangle: The balcony scene starts as [[TriangRelations type 5, but this being Oglaf, it turns into 10 and then 7]] in the epilogue.
* MaleFrontalNudity: Not shy about showing it.
* ManipulativeBastard: Vanka, sometimes to impossible degrees.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted with Ivan, if only because the in-universe definition of 'virgin' is fairly strict. To the residents of Vanorva, who are all virgins, he's "the slut" and consequently the hero of some hilariously improbable fanfiction.
* ManlyGay: Kronar.
* ManlyTears: Kronar, [[http://www.oglaf.com/son-of-kronar/2/ after seeing his "son" tear apart the wolves in the pit she was thrown into.]]
* MarsNeedsWomen: Subverted, in Human Women. [[spoiler:They appear to not know what a human woman really is.]]
* {{Matriarchy}}: Of the Sexy variety.
* MeaningfulName: What you'll get stuck with if you insult an [[{{Whatevermancy}} Apellomancer]]. And it won't be flattering, either.
* MemeticSexGod : The protagonist of Prowess strip becomes one In-Universe, thanks to a magic amulet.
* MindControl: Probably more examples in the archives, but in Frog 2, a woman is "cursed to be a slut" by a witch. A very forward thinking witch, it seems -- when the traditional kiss-to-cure trick is tried by [[LesYay a local maiden]], it turns out its a case of ViralTransformation, too.
** [[spoiler: As of the 8/26/12 update ("Slut Virus"), it seems that things have progressed around the kingdom's populace to the extent of {{Zombie Apocalypse}} levels... a very ''sexy'' zombie apocalypse...]]
* MisterSeahorse: In Kronar's all-male line, this would be the case. [[BrainBleach We actually see one of them giving birth]].
* MomentKiller: ''Everyone'', in the strip appropriately titled "Moment".
* MoralityPet: Subverted by the Lizard of Guilt.
* MortonsFork: The Ambassador tricks the Apprentice into eating a poisoned cake then offers him to [[SadisticChoice suck the antidote off his penis]]. Turns out [[spoiler:the antidote was poison too.]] Refusing doesn't save the Apprentice any suffering in the [[OrificeInvasion end]].
** Used again in "Rite of Passage". Kids are given a rite of passage to adulthood. If you do what you are told, you will be bitten by a venomous bog beast and die in [[GroinAttack a terribly painful manner]]. If you refuse, you pass. If you pass, you are offered another "rite of passage" (yes, with another bog beast, and in an equally painful manner as the last). If you pass again, you are given a treasure chest. If you open it, you die because it has a bog beast in it, but at least it'll go for your face first. If you refuse... well, we don't know what happens ''then'', but judging by the pattern, it'll include a bog beast. In summary, "Aah, kids. Fuck 'em."
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Most of the dwarves' inventions.
* MyEyesAreUpHere: Parodied in "Snakeskin".
* NatureAbhorsAVirgin: Not explicit, but in this world virginity seems to be both rare and something you're better off without.
* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe for [[http://oglaf.com/salome/1/ Salome]] and the decapitated head. She is distinctly unhappy about this.
* NippleAndDimed: Mistress's skimpy costumes usually cover at least two important areas... though sometimes they don't even manage that.
** In early strips, her tops were usually very sheer.
* NobleDemon: Strangely, Sandoval. He could just rape Ivan or have someone else take his virginity, but respects that Ivan's a virgin and comments that it's a "rare gem in an age of poverty". He also never uses force to get anyone into bed, preferring seduction or occasionally magic to make them willing.
* NonMammalMammaries: "Heh. Snake tits."
* [[NotSafeForWork NSFW]]: More often than not. Comics that actually ''are'' work-safe are the ones with labels.
* ObsessiveLoveLetter: The Apprentice [[http://oglaf.com/secret-admirer/1/ here]] started receiving odd love letters from anonymous sources, who in some cases weren't even sure of his gender. The notes quickly got [[http://oglaf.com/secret-admirer/2/ rather more ridiculous]].
* OnlyTheChosenMayWield: Parodied in "Noblesse Oblige."
* OperationJealousy: Spoofed in "Envy." A woman wants to sleep with a guy to make her friends jealous. The guy thinks this isn't a very nice thing to do, and after listening to her InsaneTrollLogic justifications, sleeps with "a much nicer woman, disguised as you" in order to make both the woman ''and'' her friends jealous.
* OrificeEvacuation: Ivan's semen turns into a Cumsprite whenever he ejaculates. After being so cursed, he manages to get fellatio. The predictable happens, but the woman (a virgin vampire) declares it to be adorable.
** Later, the phrase "bring out the goddess in me" takes on a whole new meaning.
* OrificeInvasion: The alien doctors' cleansssing polyp. (It only goes in the mouth, but it's clearly still unpleasant).
** We don't know exactly where the lubeworm goes but it's presumably this trope as well.
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Averted; Oglaf's dwarves are more like gnomes.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Not all of them are good archers.
* OutDamnedSpot
* OutWithABang:
** One of the more unusual plays on this you're likely to find - Ivan's spooges end their "lives" by splashing on (so far) a woman's face or breasts.
** When you are a male praying mantis, odds are good this happens.
* ParentalIncest: DoubleSubverted in "Branding". Princess Fatherfucker was cursed with that name by an "evil [[{{Whatevermancy}} appellomancer]]".
-->'''Suitor:''' So... you ''don't'' fuck your father?\\
'''Princess:''' Err... yes... but it only started happening because of the name.
* PerpSweating: With a [[CueTheSun sunbeam]]. Of course, when the "perp" has [[KryptoniteFactor dire reason to avoid]] sunlight, [[http://www.oglaf.com/grill/1/ this is more threatening than usual]].
* PerverseSexualLust: [[{{In-universe}} He's using]] that potion [[http://www.oglaf.com/potion/ wrong.]]
* PetitePride: The Mistress is rather small and Greir is also modestly endowed, but they never complain about it. And commenting wouldn't be wise in either case.
* PlagueDoctor: [[http://oglaf.com/jarlampham/1/ Navaan.]]
* PlayingCyrano: With a twist in Balcony.
* PlotDetour: Navaan falls victim to one. Given the nature of the "fun" in question, this could potentially double as DistractedByTheSexy.
-->'''Navaan''': Why did nobody tell me this was on?
* PoisonedChaliceSwitcheroo: The Xoan Ambassador tries to pull a poison ''penis'' switcheroo on Ivan.
* PornWithPlot: WordOfGod is that the comic started out as an attempt to make pornography, until it "degenerated into sex comedy pretty much immediately."
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Deconstructed in "Hefty Grogol". Apparently, it's better to be friends than to be enemies because it's much easier to stab your friend in the face than your enemy.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Invincible Shield Maiden. Though she doesn't seem too happy with it.
* PrecisionFStrike: Although the comic is loaded with swearing, one particularly precise example appears in the punchline of [[http://oglaf.com/alsoelves/ Also, Elves]].
-->'''"Dead" Elvish Prince:''' For ''fuck's'' sake.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Ivan evolved from being a goofy looking comical character in the beginning to a genuinely hot pretty boy with ever-so curly hair. Though how much of this is ProgressivelyPrettier and how much is simply ArtEvolution is unclear.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:Ivan. He's in a magical sleep.]]
* RageQuit: [[http://oglaf.com/automaton/ The Automaton]], a chess-playing golem.
* RebelliousPrincess [[KingIncognito Incognito]]: "Princess activities suck!"
* RedOniBlueOni: Vanka and Greir, [[http://www.oglaf.com/roguearsenal/ respectively.]]
** Thessaly and Tristram. It's even reflected in their outfits.
** Later, Navaan and Greir [[OddFriendship team up for a storyline]], to similar effect.
* RippleEffectProofMemory: The "[[http://oglaf.com/ Chronotherapist]]" goes back in time to cure a plague before it starts, and then tries to claim the StandardHeroReward. The queen, naturally, doesn't know what plague he's talking about. [[PitySex Out of pity]] he's offered a downgrade to "a handjob and a hot meal".
* RuleOfFunny: Although most episodes are [=NSFW=], the gratuitous nudity and sex plays second fiddle to this.
* TheReveal: The Funpire is none other than [[spoiler:Navaan, an actual vampire.]]
* ScheherezadeGambit: Deconstructed [[http://www.oglaf.com/scheherazade/1/ here]]. (Apparently if you leave the Sultan in suspense, he might do the same to you.)
* SchmuckBait:
** Subverted in "[[http://www.oglaf.com/bluedoor/ Blue Door]]" and in "Book of Love". Played straight and lampshaded in "Glove". It should be noted that the schmuck in all three examples is the same guy, although he only falls for it the third time. And even then, he was pretty sure it was a trap from the start.
** In "[[http://oglaf.com/trapmaster/ Lair of the Trapmaster"]], the explorers find themselves in [[EmptyRoomPsych an empty room]] with nothing but the word "Overthinking" painted on the wall. They stay there the rest of the strip wondering what it means. (Subverted? Played straight? Who knows.)
* ScienceIsBad: [[http://www.oglaf.com/tool/1/ Parodied]] by a now-overheating passerby due to dwarves inventing a cold-proof vibrator for the Snow Queen. "Yeah, spring used to mean something before technology ruined the world."
** BrickJoke: Said passerby appears to be Ari, who had previously tried and failed to satisfy the Snow Queen in "Snowbound". Given that he [[spoiler:lost his cock to frostbite]] in the attempt, it's little wonder he'd be bitter about how easy it's become.
* ScrewDestiny: Apparently, you can't fight destiny... unless it's your destiny to fight destiny. When you try to fight fighting destiny by ''not'' fighting destiny... [[http://oglaf.com/sooth/1/ you get a knife in the throat from a pissed-off seer]]. "No ''way'' am I letting that little shit become king."
** Given the tone of the rest of the series, it's only a matter of time before we see this literally happen.
* SerialEscalation: InUniverse in [[http://www.oglaf.com/beot/1/ this comic]], two warriors in a bar make {{Badass Boast}}s on how they will defeat a monster while handicapping themselves, each one more outrageous than the last. [[spoiler:It gets to the point that the monster arrives to terrorize the bar and finds everyone inside dead from cutting themselves and everyone there apart to fulfill their bravado.]]
* SexComedy: In webcomic form.
* ShaggyDogStory: Several, particularly the whole arc that starts with "Shaft" and seems to end in "Wake" on the words "stupid f'ing town". Justice/Atonement is another example.
* ShapeshifterBaggage: Examined in [[http://oglaf.com/weepingwoods/ "Weeping Woods"]].
* ShapeShifting: They aren't too well versed in human behaviour, unfortunately.
* ShapeshiftingSeducer
** A hilariously unsuccessful attempt on Greir.
** Likewise, a forest nymph seems particularly inclined toward seducing and assuming the shape of wayward princes, which backfires when it turns out one of the victims wasn't entirely honest on an important point.
** Another shapeshifter happens to be successful -- despite his BrutalHonesty.
** Yet another Shapeshifting Seducer works as a SuperHero -- [[ScrewYourself Dopplebanger]].
* ShoutOut:
** The [[http://www.wowhead.com/spell=90833 Skull Drinking Cup]] from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' with "So thirsty..." in its description is a reference to Oglaf's "[[http://oglaf.com/skulls/ Skulls]]" strip.
** The strip [[http://www.oglaf.com/riteofpassage/1/ "Rite of Passage"]] is a big one to the HandInTheHole[[note]]except switch "hand" with "penis" here[[/note]] scene from the 1980 ''Film/FlashGordon'' film.
** [[http://www.oglaf.com/ornithology/1/ "Ornithology"]] is one to Creator/PeterJackson's adaptation of ''Film/TheHobbit''.
** The AltText to the strip where a woman tells a man he's safe from arrest if he's inside her "[[UnusualEuphemism embassy]]" says "I had that Cult song stuck in my head the whole time." That song presumably being "She Sells Sanctuary".
* SingleTear: [[http://oglaf.com/goodbehavior/2/ A guard]], enduring Vanka and another woman (who is now a recurring character) in a cell crudely mocking him.
--> "This is an enormous slur on my professional conduct."
* SirSwearsalot: All of the [[ClusterFBomb fukken dwarves]] have fukken limited vocabularies.
* SituationalSexuality: Most of Mistress' all-female guard corps are not lesbians, but it doesn't seem to bother them.
* SnakeTalk: The inhuman staff of the infirmary at the Mistress' castle [[http://www.oglaf.com/infffirmary/ speak]] [[http://www.oglaf.com/infffirmary/epilogue/ like]] [[http://www.oglaf.com/stalker/2/ this]].
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: A GaussianGirl finds [[{{Glamour}} her newfound beauty]] is [[BlessedWithSuck not all it's cracked up]] to be when [[http://www.oglaf.com/unattainable/1/ no suitor considers himself worthy of her beauty]].
* StealthHiBye: Vanka escapes from her cell after flirting with the guard outside her door. She stole the keys from him in a similarly sneaky manner.
* StoryArc: Even though this is a gag-a-week webcomic with vague storylines, we now have several arcs, sometimes broken up by other gag strips.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: "Owlbear". Upon being cornered by the eponymous predator, a man decides to out-breed it so their offspring will survive. His female companion thinks this is a brilliant idea. [[spoiler: The owlbear anticipates this exact plan and starts saying moodkillers so they can't procreate.]]
* StrangerInAFamiliarLand: Averted in "Felicity". Apparently turnips are just that awesome.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: The Mistress and her servants.
* TakeThat: "Naiads" includes a rather hilarious jibe at Mountain Dew in the alt text.
* TakenForGranite:
** "Snakeshin" shows one way to [[SubvertedTrope avoid it]].
** Terrifyingly played straight in "Pork Chisel" with the still-conscious statues.
** Might also apply to the guy in "Noblesse Oblige" - he's magically stuck for a ''long'' time, and from the fact that his pose doesn't change between panels he may be magically paralyzed as well.
* TarAndFeathers: "Prince Rodgar".
* TeachHimAnger: The titular Sword Master of "The Sword Master" strip returns with his apprentice again. This time he seeks to teach the apprentice anger for a tournament after they watch attractive women bathe, reasoning that being out of their league is highly frustrating... [[ConverseError by telling him to masturbate to a picture of his opponent Lucius Bonecrusher until he finds him attractive]]? It seems Lucius practiced this as well, [[GoneHorriblyRight as at the tournament they both just blushed and started kissing each other instead of fighting]]. The Sword Master, outraged by his apprentice not fighting, enacts his training for himself upon the apprentice.
--> '''Sword Master''': Hey! What do you think you're doing? '''I'M GONNA FUCK YOU UP, BOY!'''
--> (''BeatPanel as he pulls out a picture of his apprentice'')
--> '''Sword Master''': Just give me a month.
* TechnicalVirgin: The in-universe definition of "virgin" tends to be pretty strict:
** An entire city of them!
** Ivan himself is identified as a virgin, but he by his own admittance is constantly having sexual things done to him, just nothing that breaks the technical status of his virginity. The castle doctors express concern his lack of sexual experience might end up killing him.
* TemporalParadox: In "Chronotherapy", a healer goes back in time to heal a plague before it ravages a kingdom, then returns to the present to claim his reward from the rulers. Exceeeeept, since there was no plague in the first place, the queen has no idea what she's supposed to be rewarding him for.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: If a man in Kronar's tribe [[MisterSeahorse gives birth to]] a daughter, they affix the "bow of shame" to its head and leave it to the wolves.
* TestosteronePoisoning: Kronar and his fellow warriors are very masculine, so... they [[MisterSeahorse reproduce by themselves]], [[HeManWomanHater shun women]] and [[ManlyGay are gay]].
* TheTease:
** The blonde with the hat (who as of yet still remains unnamed) takes this UpToEleven. Her first appearance involved her mocking a prison guard through a (clothed) sexual display with Vanka. Subsequent appearances have her teasing male lovers with outrageous demands and unorthodox fetishes, such as requiring them [[{{Troll}} to state a ''preamble'' before engaging in coitus]].
** [[http://oglaf.com/mistertique/2/ Mistertique]] is a GenderFlip.
*** Mistertique and Blonde-With-Hat hooked up for "Consummate". [[spoiler: BWH insisted that Mistertique describe in graphic detail all the ways their lovemaking could go wrong, ruining the mood for him.]]
* ThereWasADoor: Mistress' guards [[http://oglaf.com/stealth-kill/ leave the gate open]] just to screw with assassins who are overly fond of LeParkour.
* [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman This Looks Like A Job For A Dentist]]: Overbite, though the dentist was just as surprised as everyone else it worked.
* ThreatBackfire
* TitleDrop: In "Suddenly", Oglaf, where we learn that the full title is (possibly) The Magical Adventures of Oglaf the Shepherd Boy.
* TongueOnTheFlagpole:
** In the Boudoir of the Snow Queen; though it's not a flagpole...
** In a later strip, [[GroinAttack it's not a tongue either]]. ''[[IceBreaker Ouch.]]''
* TooDumbToLive:
** [[http://oglaf.com/skein/1/ the guy that slew the minotaur]] had some... odd ideas about how the ball of yarn would help him escape the labyrinth.
** After Kronar leaves a man alive to tell the story, the man later calls Kronar a wuss for doing so. When Kronar hears and decides to kill him and his friends, leaving only one alive, they still can't resist teasing him about it. So he kills them all. And torches the tavern they're in. And stabs a few nearby trees.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Ivan -- at least, Navaan seems to think so. You have to wonder how her other victims reacted to the threat of sexual intercourse with a hot woman...
** Considering that the entire city is populated with virgins who are terrified at even the ''possibility'' that someone sexually promiscuous might be running about, Navaan probably expected such threats to elicit a somewhat more fearful reaction.
* TortureTechnician: [[http://www.oglaf.com/transgression/1/ A pair of them]], each [[InLoveWithYourCarnage In Love With Each Other's Transgression]].
* TotemPoleTrench: A tournament is won by a bunch of babies in a suit of armour in "[[http://oglaf.com/bascinet/ Bascinet]]".
* TrickingTheShapeshifter: [[http://www.oglaf.com/kingshaped/ Whoops.]]
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: [[invoked]]Mistertique and the Cougar Queen have an argument along these lines regarding "[[http://oglaf.com/trammels/ the secret of [his] man-pants!]]"
-->'''Mistertique:''' See? You cannot plumb the depths for sheer enigma!\\
'''Cougar Queen:''' It's not an enigma if there's nothing behind it. [[SurrealHumor This is just wilful abstruseness.]]\\
'''Mistertique:''' ''[{{beat}}]'' There's no shame in admitting you don't get it. Seriously.
* TurnUndead: Though not the kind of "turning" you were thinking.
* {{Twincest}}: The first sign that [[spoiler:the "Felicia" hallucination is beginning to break down]] is when Ivan sees that his hot wife has given birth to two fully-grown twins who are making out with each other.
* {{Underboobs}}: The Snow Queen.
* UnflinchingWalk: Greir, Navaan, and [[ThoseTwoGuys the monks]] pull [[http://www.oglaf.com/deincarnation/5/ one of these]] off [[spoiler:after torching the temple of fun]].
* UnfortunateName: Apellomancers can give these to people. Just ask Princess Fatherfucker and Captain Cockstink.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Mistress, though all of her outfits are skimpy.
* UnluckyEverydude: Ivan the Apprentice. So very unlucky.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: In "Puzzlecunt", Misterique ''would'' be having this, [[SubvertedTrope if he could figure out the solution to the "puzzle" literally in front of his face]].
* TheUnsmile: Anyone affected by the Funsnake's aura gets a wide-eyed, demented grin.
* UnsoundEffect: [[http://oglaf.com/swordmaster/1/ The Sword Master's]] DopeSlap is appropriately sound effected with '''SLAP!'''
* UnusualEuphemism: The Immaculate City's inhabitants have curious notions of what sexual terms exist, and what the real ones actually mean.
* UpperClassTwit: The Ambassador seems to have a case of this.
* VaporWear: Vanka's outfit is cut low enough in front and high enough on the sides to demonstrate this ("Cryophilia", for example).
* ViewersAreGeniuses:
** What do you ''mean'' you don't get the joke in "[[http://oglaf.com/salome/1/ Salome]]?" How did you not know that the biblical Salome's dance convinced Herod to behead John the Baptist, and that in Oscar Wilde's adaptation of the story she kisses his decapitated head?
** Not to mention Scherazade's occasional appearance.
** And of course there's the 'Golden Hind' Bordello.
* VirginSacrifice: Navaan has been sending virgins "out" of Vanorva to be eaten by her fellow vampires. It's not clear whether the victims have to be virgins or if virgins are just the easiest prey.
* VirginPower:
** Apparently needed to see the Golden Spires of Vanorva. [[TechnicalVirgin Blow jobs apparently do not count]].
** Also a BrickJoke from [[http://www.oglaf.com/infffirmary/ earlier in the arc]].
** The religious order in "Lapis Lazuli." When Vanka comes to plunder their idol, she's clever enough to [[FlawExploitation deflower her attackers]] before making off with her prize.
* VisualPun[=/=]MultipleReferencePun: Sandoval's funeral outfit includes a bundle of sticks on his head; i.e. a faggot. Sandoval is gay. It's also mourning wood.
** Another visual pun: Vanka has an Film/{{octopussy}}.
* WeaksauceWeakness: In "Lapis Lazuli" and next two comics. The monks learn their lesson, though.
* WeNeedADistraction: Fortunately, [[ItMakesSenseInContext a rodeo-bull in a giant penis suit]] escaping its pen should do nicely.
* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler: Kill the apprentice? Pfft, LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt. Oh... ''oh no!'']]
* WhatHaveIBecome: Used word-for-word as the punchline of [[http://oglaf.com/abyss/1/ The Abyss]].
* WhipItGood: The last panel of one strip implies that Mistress is about to put this to good use on Ivan.
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: Averted hilariously and spectacularly on two occasions:
** She's about to torture a man in a way so horrible once you understand that it's a good thing when her pet falcon incinerates him with its laser eyes. Although this prompts her to sell the bird.
** The second time [[http://oglaf.com/blanket/1/ Mistress deliberately invokes it.]]
* WinterRoyalLady: The Snow Queen. Quite literally.
* TheWisePrince: Tristram. (His brother Thessaly is stuck being the Cynical Prince in a story that runs on Idealism.)
* YaoiFangirl:
** The paladin from "Rigor Mortis".
** Mistress with Sandoval and the Apprentice as well.
** Scheherazade in "Arabian Nights" too.
** Trudy Cooper herself it seems.
*** Does she count as a YuriFan as well? Or maybe she's just an overall Sexy fan.
* YaoiGuys:
** Kronar and his mate.
** The two guys from "Balcony" (who might bear some resemblance to [[TheRoadToElDorado Miguel and Tulio]] if you squint a bit).
** The "Princess" and "her" prince.
** The guys from "Arabian Nights".
** The gladiators in "Sport" apparently take requests.
* YouCantFightFate: [[http://oglaf.com/sooth/1/ Or can you?]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YouShallNotPass: Inverted in "[[http://oglaf.com/ravine/ Ravine]]". Greir is not amused.
* YouWontFeelAThing: A [[http://oglaf.com/stalker/2/ favorite]] "[[BlatantLies promise]]" of the Nurses.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Shows up here and there, but Greir's default outfit features Grade A.
