''[[http://liliy.net/wam/ The Adventures of Wiglaf and Mordred]]'' is a humorous comic about Wiglaf (our hero) befriending Mordred (our villain), by force if necessary. It's also about Mordred's super villain family, their cronies, their friends, and pretty much everyone else that happens to drop in or appear in the background of a strip (see LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters).

----
!!This comic provides examples of:
* ABoyAndHisX - It would take a crowbar and an act of God to separate Safir and Wolfy... and that's before Arthur Sr. and Geoffrey attack.
** Wolfy has yet to display life-changing tendencies, but he ''is'' the only non-possessed possession in the comic.
** The early comics look mighty like a mercenary and his [[spoiler:serial killer possessed]] sword when it comes to Azrael and Grace. Especially when it's [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/azraels-one-true-love/ moments]] [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/angel-of-death/ like]] [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/azrael-trumps-population-control/ these]].
** Ben and Éclat, almost as bad as Azrael and Grace.
** Most surprisingly is [[spoiler: Mordred and Bliss. Although not as bad as Azrael and Grace, he does seem to be developing some of the 'can't be parted' tendencies as he pointed out [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/because-of-bliss/ here]].]]
* AMatchMadeInStockholm - Geoffry and Janus.
* TheAce - Wiglaf was created to be a subversion of this trope. He's perfect at everything... but ''because'' he's perfect at everything, people can't stand him. He's also got an almost obsessive-compulsive need to fix things.
* AmazonBrigade - The Valkyrie Sisters.
* AmuletOfDependency - Grace
** And Éclat of the same set, doubly so with his abusive relationship with his owner: Benjamin is a total wreck without him.
* ArchEnemy - Azrael
* ArtifactOfDoom - the Sword of Grace and the Orb of Bliss, possibly the Sword of Eclat and the Sword of Prudence.
** And quite possibly [[spoiler: Ring of Jade]], though so far all that is know is her name-courtesy of Grace here-[[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/pet-peeve/]] and that WordOfGod says [[spoiler: she's a Ring(and a she)]]. Since the powers are unknown, [[spoiler: Jade]] may not fall into the ArtifactOfDoom category.
** Wiglaf (and others) probably consider Camlann this due to his WallOfText rants and the fact that he keeps burning the hands of everyone(save Wiglaf) who touches him
* AtTheOperaTonight - The Piano Concert arch.
* AxCrazy - [[NaughtyNurseOutfit Galen]], and how!
** [[spoiler: Sedrick most recently went AxCrazy.]]
* BerserkButton -
** Azrael has one towards art pieces and artifacts being stolen. [[spoiler: He threatened Generic upon learning about his stolen Ming Vase, Picasso, among other things.]]
** Bliss, to a lesser extend when someone handles/touches her orb. [[spoiler: She blasted Wiglaf when he touched it, though she doesn't seem to remember this fact at all when Mordred brought it up mere seconds after.]] And most recently discovered is [[spoiler: people fighting.]]
** Arthur, if you dare to touch Mordred. Also qualifies as BigBrotherInstinct.
* {{Bishonen}} - Most of the male cast qualify.
* BigBrotherInstinct - Arthur. Lampshaded. Repeatedly.
* BigScrewedUpFamily - The Garrotts. Seriously.
* BlackSheep - Boudica is the only member of her family that is in no way a villain. She is, in fact, a concert pianist.
** She does show shades of murderous intent when Wiglaf upstaged her at the concert.
* BlatantBurglar - Generic Burgler. And yes, that's his real name.
* BlindingBangs - Driver.
** Subverted [[http://liliy.net/wam/2009/03/15/right-to-the-point-isnt-he/ once]] when we got a [[PeekABangs look at one eye.]]
* BodyguardCrush -
** Sedrick has one on Arthur.
** Driver (though not quite a bodyguard) has on on Mordred.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday - Arthur and Sedrick have no recollection of Gawain.
* ButtMonkey -
** Gawain at the hands of the voodoo priest/ess, Arthur, Sedrick, Galen, Ricky, and sometimes Hagen. He may, in fact, be TheChewToy
** Horatio may also be a ButtMonkey or ChewToy, though with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters it's hard to tell if he suffers misfortune often enough.
* BystanderSyndrome - Mordred.
* CatchPhrase - Mordred's 'I hate you.' Usually delivered to Wiglaf.
* CatBoy - Herschall.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome - Wiglaf. Even living with a family of super villains can't cure it.
* ClingyJealousGirl - Driver with Mordred.
* ClingyMacGuffin - Grace, probably.
** All of his set seems to be like that. Need you forget Bliss and Éclat so easily.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}} - Bliss.
* CriminalAmnesiac - Gawain, somewhat. See, he can regenerate from injuries, and he considers Arthur and Sedrick his arch-enemies...but he's been shot in the head so many times he can't for the [[IncrediblyLamePun life of him]] remember why. So in the meantime, he figures a steady paycheck and a job as a Garrott henchman won't be such a bad thing, at least until he remembers.
* CuteClumsyGirl - Boudica.
* [[DaddysLittleVillain Daddy's Little Villain]] - Hagen. "[[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/what-did-you-expect/ I'm a henchman too, ya know.]]"
* DarkSkinnedBlond - Wiglaf, Brat, and to a lesser degree, Gawain. Security would probably count for this as well.
* DeadpanSnarker - Grace and Mordred.
* DeathbringerTheAdorable - UStream sessions assure viewers [[spoiler:that Mordred will soon acquire a cute puppy named "Grendel."]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady - Azrael really needs a haircut. Those long, red tresses make him look like a her. Inverted with Driver, who suprises everyone when they discover that "he" is a "she". In fact, the only way to detect that she is really a lady is the fact that there's no [[FanDisservice Man-Toe]] when she wears lingerie.
** A good portion of the male cast qualifies, actually. Earlier in the strips run Wiglaf was routinely mistaken for a girl. WordOfGod says this was at least part of the reason his hair got cut in later strips.
** Azreal has since gotten a haircut, making him look a bit less feminine.
** Averted by Geoffrey, Ricky, and Arthur Sr.
* EmpathicWeapon -
** Camlann.
** [[spoiler:Grace, who is actually a spirit bound to the sword.]]
*** [[spoiler: Actually, he IS the sword, but WAS human.]]
** Subverted by [[spoiler:Bliss, who doesn't quite realize she could be a weapon.]]
** Inverted by [[spoiler:Eclat, who is technically empathic but doesn't seem to bother with the whole "empathy" bit at all.]]
* TheEveryman - Mordred's downstairs neighbour, Julian, is one of the very few token normal people in The Adventures.
** Living under/around villains and heros on a regular basis as Julian does, he must frequently exercise UnusuallyUninterestingSight.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep - Security. Played with in Driver's case; her name is actually "Ainsley Driver."
* EveryoneIsRelated - Well, not necessarily to each other, but it's hard to find someone in the comic who isn't related by blood to someone else.
** [[http://liliy.net/wam/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/wam-relationshipchart.gif Relationship chart]]
* EvilGloating - Subverted when [[spoiler:Vilhelm]] begins to monologue and then says, "And I don't need to explain why because in an hour or so: you won't care!"
* EvilMatriarch - Madame Garrott, despite being retired, most certainly qualifies.
** Hints that Wiglaf's mother, Linnea, may also be a ruthless matriarch, if not an evil one.
* EyesAlwaysShut - Security.
** Actually, he has opened his eyes twice so far (pages #4 and #540)
* EyeScream: Jade (telekineticly) rips the eyeball from Driver's head and gives it to 'boss' who eats it on page 712
* FailedASpotCheck -
** Everyone in the cast with Security, who turns up in random locations (sometimes hundreds of miles apart) at random times without anyone questioning how or why he's there.
** Subverted by Hnæf, who immediately tries to investigate Security the first time they meet and freaks out when his super-AI information network computer, Mí­mir, can't find any information on him.
** Also subverted by Geoffry, whose parental instincts over-rode whatever it is Security does when Security was talking to Safir, Geoffry's son. Security ended up with a spectacular black eye.
* FanDisservice If [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/pin-up-i/ This Page]] doesn't count I may need to get more xp
* {{Fangirl}} - The Valkyrie Sisters with Azrael.
** Brat with Mordred
*** And Janus. And Arthur. Mordred's siblings are his first and most constant fangirls. Well maybe not Janus as much but definitely Arthur.
** Wiglaf has his fair share of them as well, as seen in the "Orb of Bliss" Arc.
*** And in a sketch drawn by the artist showing him jogging, with a multitude of fangirls hiding behind a bush stalking him.
* FanService - Most often it is a ShirtlessScene when an attractive member of the male cast will appear, well, without a shirt-Such as Wiglaf when he had to remove his chain mail to get past airport security, or here-http://liliy.net/wam/archive/ignored/ where the last panel is simply a fan service panel.
** It also tends to manifest itself in the for of various pin-ups. Like the 'female character popping out of a cake' ones for the comic's birthday.
* {{Fauxshadow}} - A literal case of fauxshadowing on "457. Going to Catch Flies."
* FillerStrips - Used purposely at the end of each arch in the form of character pinups.
* FlowerMotifs -
** Flowers and similarly herbaceous objects have been used repeatedly to delineate Lancelot's, Mordred's, and Driver's personalities and dispositions.
** And the decorative hilt on Grace's sword, that's flower-like.
** A non-canon portrait by the author once used a daisy to illustrate Wiglaf's personality.
** In the event of Azrael's redesign, "457. Going to Catch Flies," Liliy placed small, pink, scattered flowers on his white trousers.
* FluffyTheTerrible - The [[spoiler:Sword of Grace]] is a manipulative psychopath, and the Orb of Bliss might be ''worse.'' Ironically, Wiglaf makes Mordred go on a quest for the Orb of Bliss specifically because it sounds benevolent.
** [[spoiler:Bliss seems to be benevolent, if a bubbly airhead.]]
** The Sword of Eclat is an unknown quantity, yet, but [[spoiler:he is a male chauvinist and takes great delight in tormenting his owner, so "eclat" does not quite suit.]]
* FourthWallMailSlot - Not done in the comic itself, but an [[http://milkinthepantry.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=484 entire thread]] on the official comic forums is dedicated to this.
* FunetikAksent - Driver and Galen both speak with very heavy accents (southern and Russian, respectively). In Driver's case it's shown in The Rescue arc (and WordOfGod) that she gets it from her father, who also has a noticeable southern accent.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon - The Valkyrie Sisters each wield deadly weapons of one form or another (except for Svafa, who ''is'' a deadly weapon).
* GoKartingWithBowser - Wiglaf regarding Mordred and just about everyone involved in Mordred's life.
* HadakaApron - Janus decides to spice things up for her husband [[http://liliy.net/wam/2009/11/20/domestic-bliss/ while baking cookies.]]
* HalfIdenticalTwins - Janus and Arthur.
* HandsomeLech - In a club, Arthur Jr. is purported to be one of these.
* HealingFactor - Gawain. Due to the whole zombie thing. [[ImmortalityHurts Not a boon when Gawain meets Dr. Galen.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners - WordOfGod on Wiglaf and Mordred, [[YaoiGuys despite the]] [[HoYay obvious]].
* HumanityEnsues - Camlann, despite not being an animal, he is still a non-human[[spoiler:Éclat's powers turns the chatty sword into a David Bowie-esc human.]]
* HypercompetentSidekick - Sedrick to Arthur.
* ICallItVera - Azrael's sword Grace. However, according to Azrael, Grace is male.
** [[spoiler:Also, Grace is in fact a spirit bound to the sword that Azrael can see, not just a figment of his imagination.]] And Wiglaf [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/before-its-too-late/ just understood]].
** Hissy, the killer plant left in Mordred's apartment by Lancelot. Wiglaf and Mordred decided to name it 'Hissy'.
* ILied - [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/paying-attention-is-overrated/ Janus.]]
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons - Arthur breeds dragons.
* InvisibleToNormals -
** [[spoiler:Grace.]] The only ones who can see him is [[spoiler:Azrael]] and, for some reason, Gawain. Probably because of the whole Zombie thing.
** [[spoiler:Bliss]] and [[spoiler:Eclat]] also fit this trope, and are also probably visible to Gawain.
* KarmaHoudini - All of the Garrotts and everyone who works for them, to a greater or lesser extent, except Boudica. Azrael, apparently a known and wanted serial killer, is even able to casually attend a probably-televised concert and greet the famous pianist.
* {{Kuudere}} - Mordred is a Type 1.
* LetsGetDangerous - Surprisingly [[spoiler: Mordred to an extent. Seen when he holds his on against [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/and-wiglaf-shall-read/ SEDRICK]] of all people. As WordOfGod stated, 'Someone had to take after dad'. Of course, as soon as Wiglaf returned he resumed his act of being 'oh so helpless'. Of course, thisleads one to wonder, just what he could be capeable of if he wasn't so lazy.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters - WAM has a constantly expanding cast of characters. Currently it sits at 52, with a number of dragons having also made an appearance.
* MadScientist -
** Lancelot is a Mad Botanist, and is in denial about it.
** Galen is empirical in her approach to testing pain endurance.
* MeaningfulName -
** Azrael, known as the "Angel of Death". It fits his murderous tendencies, to say the least.
** Ainsley Driver, possibly by way of PropheticName or WhatDidYouExpectWhenYouNamedIt.
** "Bliss," "Grace," and "Eclat" also fall under this trope, in twisted ways.
* MoralityPet - Wiglaf is one of these to Mordred, according to fans, though there has been debate.
* NamedWeapons - Camlann, the magical (chattering) sword.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast - In universe, Arthur Garrot (Sr) actually, just the name 'Garrott' in general.
** Also Azreal, Ricky, Galen, The Valkyires, Alistair and, pretty much anyone working for the Garrotts.
** Wiglaf and his other name 'The Devil of Bohuslän' except in this case, it's the villains running, not everyone else.
*** Though The Devil of Bohuslän is a pretty ominous name for the hero.
* MotiveDecay - [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/dragons-are-easy/ Gawain]].
* NighInvulnerability - Word of God has stated that, although the artifacts are magical they are not indestructible, but it would take a lot to destroy any of them and that it is very hard to do so. [[spoiler: Example: Mordred stuffed the Orb of Bliss into a box and dropped it out the second story window. It was returned to him unharmed (but angry).]]
* NoNameGiven: Wiglaf's sister is known only as "brat".
* NoodleImplements - Gawain's zombiefication "involves a golden egg, a spork and a swamp witch... Oh, and there was a puffer fish"
* ObfuscatingStupidity -
** Mordred seemed ignorant of Wiglaf's hero persona, but later revealed to Driver (and the audience) that he'd know since the beginning. He just enjoyed bossing around the his brother's rival, and figured Wiglaf wouldn't have put up with it had he.
** Another time was with Arthur, who'd been shown insisting to Sedrick that his male dragon Gustave had indeed laid eggs. [[spoiler: In fact, Gustav's species is able to spontaneously 'change it's sex in order to procreate', something that Arthur was fully aware of despite acting stupid about what was going on and Sedrick was not aware until he looked it up while trying to prove Arthur wrong.]]
* OddCouple - Wiglaf and Mordred, and the basic premise of the entire comic.
* OffhandBackhand - Svafa in [[http://liliy.net/wam/2008/09/19/thats-like-a-lot-of-blood/ this]] strip
* OffScreenTeleportation - Security. 'Nuff said.
* OverlordJr - Apparently the original intent for Safir, but subverted in practice.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent - Gawain is a zombie. He is also pretty much indistinguishable from a living person apart from the fact that he regenerates from every injury. Although, injuries can have lasting effects, as being shot point blank in the head causes him to lose some important memories. It is unknown what you would have to do to rekill him for good, or even if it's possible. Headshots certainly don't work.
** His amulet seems to have something to do with keeping him "alive".
* PapaWolf - Do ''not'' talk to Safir without talking to Geoffry and Janus first. Geoffry will fuck you up.
* PreExplosionGlow - Bliss, when she gets very angry. Her silvery-blue orb, turns blood red. That's when you know to duck and cover.
* PuppyDogEyes - Safir on [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/mother-of-the-year-that/ these]] [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/we-are-not-in-horatios-box/ two]] pages.
* PureIsNotGood - Arthur Sr.
* TheRant - Both a regular blog and accompanying text with each comic, which almost always has very little to do with the comic itself (including random song lyrics).
* RealMenWearPink - Azrael. [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/down-time/ Down Time]] & [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/it-was-medical/ Roomies]] just to name two chapters.
** Though "real man" might be a little inappropriate as the latter page reveals that [[spoiler:Azrael's bloodstream is now devoid of testosterone]].
* RedheadInGreen - Lancelot
* RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain - [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/regenerating-undead/ Lampshaded]] by Arthur and averted by Gawain.
-->'''Arthur''': ''"You're not a zombie. Everyone knows you take them out with a shot to the head. And you're still standing."''
-->'''Gawain''': ''"Have you ever killed a zombie?"''
-->'''Arthur''': ''"No."''
-->'''Gawain''': ''"Met one?"''
-->'''Arthur''': ''"No."''
-->'''Gawain''': ''"Then, how exactly do you know that actually works?"''
* RetiredMonster - Arthur Garrott Senior, and probably his wife Agnes "Hera" Garrott too.
** Alistair, aka 'The Golden Barber' who 'made his claim to fame lobbing off heads with a rusty butcher knife.' He also happens to be [[spoiler:Driver's dad]]
* RitualMagic - Several characters have come about through the use of ritual magic.
** Gawain, a zombie, remembers his creation involved ritual use of NoodleImplements.
** [[spoiler:Grace]] explained that he was part of a set, and WordOfGod explained that all the objects in the set were [[spoiler: once human, though none lived at the same time: Grace was from Medieval Ireland, Bliss from Victorian Era England, and Éclat from France during the French revolution.]]
* RunningGag -
** How Security got his start.
** "Was that the Stable Boy?"
* ScaryShinyGlasses - Vilhelm channels Gendo pretty often.
* ScheduleSlip - It's alright, though; it's not her fault.
** Somewhat less slippery now that the author [[http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wiglaf-mordred/v3 Ustream's most of the comics]].
* SecurityBlanket - Wolfy for Safir.
** So far, very little indication that Wolfy might be a CompanionCube.
** Wolfy may be a NumberOneDime, but loss is more likely to be a BerserkButton for Geoffrey or Arthur Sr. than for Safir.
** Grace was initially considered a SecurityBlanket for Azrael.
* SignedUpForTheDental - Gawain joins the side of evil for the [[http://liliy.net/wam/2009/06/07/even-zombies-need-dental/ dental.]]
* SlidingScaleOfUndeadRegeneration - level four, Gawain only feels pain when he first takes injury, and can stick any bits that get chopped off him back in their respective sockets. He also doesn't degenerate, although his flesh and skin slough from his bones when he touches an AntiMagic field.
* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick - Three, all swords. One won't shut up when he's allowed to talk (see TalkingWeapon) while the others lines are [[InvisibleToNormals inaudible to anyone else.]]
* StalkerWithACrush - Brat.
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: Arthur Sr. to himself, after Security escapes him.
-->'''Arthur:''' Why don't I ever just kill you?
* StockholmSyndrome - One possible explanation for Janus and Geoffry's relationship
* StrongFamilyResemblance - Hagen truly looks like a combination of her parents.
** Wiglaf and [[spoiler: Lennart. Even pointed out by Mordred [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/meeting-the-parents/ here]], and even then Wiglaf needed to have it practically spelled out for him.]]
* SubordinateExcuse - Sedrick with Arthur, Wiglaf with Mordred
* TalkingApplianceSidekick - Camlann, a lot.
* TalkingWeapon -
** Camlann. And really, it's more like [[WallsOfText the sword that won't shut up]].
** Grace, although fewer people can hear him.
** Eclat, with the same caveats as Grace
* TangledFamilyTree - It rivals the X-men chart that is the page example.
* TeenGenius - Hnæf, despite being twelve and not actually a teen.
** Also combined with PhotographicMemory to make him the most potentially annoying TeenGenius ever.
** According to a recent comic, Hnæf turned 13 in October, making him a true TeenGenius.
* TraumaticHaircut - Mordred has cut Wiglaf's hair without permission on at least two occasions. Recently, Wiglaf got back by dyeing Mordred's hair neon pink.
* TortureTechnician - Galen.
* [[UglyGuysHotDaughter Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter]] - Hagen. There's no denying that, while he might have only gotten that way because of his wife, Ricky is not pretty and his daughter is.
* UglyGuyHotWife - Galen and Ricky. This is probably Galen's fault.
* VitriolicBestBuds - Wiglaf and Mordred.
* WallsOfText -
** Actually used to describe the comic in at least one review: "The Adventures of Wiglaf and Mordred, who are hot for a [[WallsOfText wall-o-text]]". Most often perpetrated by Mordred, though the most obvious example is [[spoiler:anytime Camlann is removed from his sheath, especially the first time after Wiglaf and Mordred fly back to the US after retrieving him]].
*** Anytime [[spoiler: Camlann]] opens his mouth really.
** Bliss after Mordred tried to throw her out a window to shut her up-with no success as she was brought back back Julian.
* WeirdnessCoupon -
** Sometimes Lancelot, sometimes Wiglaf.
** Generally averted by Mordred.
** Subverted by Azrael.
** Bliss
* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler: Sedrick]] [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/note-the-pronouns/ decides that it's time to make some changes around here.]] And this is only the beginning...
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent - Driver's intended accent [[AmericanAccents (southern US)]] had to be [[http://milkinthepantry.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=484&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=75 clarified]] by WordOfGod.
* Possible WildMagic - Camlann's background has not been sufficiently explained, and he cannot interact with the possessed objects, so he is likely to be a different sort of magic, possibly wild magic since he is sentient and willful.
* WouldHitAGirl - As [[http://liliy.net/wam/2008/11/21/no-need-to-shout/ demonstrated here]], Wiglaf isn't afraid to hit back when provoked, regardless of gender.
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants - With general ideas of plot direction, Liliy tends to leave dialogue until the day she creates the page and occasionally incorporates gags suggested by family members or UStream attendees.
* YaoiGuys - Most of the male cast qualify. Lampshaded in the filler pinup "Traumatized Yet?"
* {{Yandere}} - [[spoiler: Sedrick]] in the latest arc (as of october 2011). So much. See [[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/no-time-to-change/ this]].
* YourCheatingHeart - Linnéa, Wiglaf's mother. She's married to Vilhelm, but has been having an affair with Lennart for likely just as long. Vilhelm knows about it too. [[spoiler: Lennert also happens to be Wiglaf and Brat's biological father.]]
