[[caption-width-right:350:The Main Cast of WTF Comics]]

A Fantasy Webcomic, created by Jeremy Waller in 2003 (and still running), based on the world of the well-known MMORPG, EverQuest. WTF Comics is a shining example of well-delivered Fantasy Story, with a lot of comedy, fun, action, and drama.

The story starts with Annashi, a [[{{Noob}} young druid girl]] who decides to go on an adventure to find her [[DisappearedDad long lost father]] with one of her father's old friends, a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Grumpy Iksar Warrior]], Straha Ironscale. Then, as the number of their friends and enemies gather along the way, and the little [[CharacterMagneticTeam 2-man party]] grows ever larger, the story slowly turns into an Epic Fantasy tale of a group of adventurers, each of them there for different reasons, but fighting together against the forces of the NebulousEvilOrganisation "The Vision".

Contains no little amount of [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Moments]] and Badass.

----
This series contains examples of:
* ArtEvolution or ArtShift: depending on the point of view
* AscendedExtra: Smoke's backstory is being explored in a [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/smoke/archive.html?26_1 separate side comic.]]
* AssKickingPose: Lots of. Nearly everyone get's one, especially [[BadassLongRobe Smoke]]. Heck, it's even easier to count when he's '''not''' in one.
* BadassLongcoat: Straha, and later Smoke too
* BeCarefulWhatYouSay: Shade can't break a promise. Literally.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Straha and Maguna, and it never gets old
* BerserkButton: Anna getting hurt can make half the party go LetsGetDangerous
** And don't lock Maguna up. [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Really, we mean it]]...she [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?421_421 gets scary.]]
* BiggerOnTheInside: [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?405_400 Smoke's box.]]
* TheBigGuy: Straha
* BloodFromTheMouth: Frequently used
* BrainFood: Played straight and humorously played with/averted by the [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_156 zombies]] in Kithicor Forest.
* TheBrute: Gorax, [[spoiler:though he gets one-hand-smaller for a short time after his battle with Straha]]
* BulletTime: And how!
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Maguna tries to explain, via stick drawings, that Straha's powers were greater than they realized and might be limited only by his imagination. Straha (proving her point about his imagination) [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?405_405 gets hung up on Maguna's art skils.]]
* CoolShades: Smoke's shades. [[spoiler:They can even see the invisible.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Smoke, starting as a little pocket Monk with seemingly no real battle capabilities besides dodging things, [[spoiler:until Nikisha stabs Anna in front of him, making him go "all out" in rage and annihilating an entire bridge of Mooks along with the bridge itself under them, nearly killing her too in the process.]]
** Oh, and did we mention that he can also [[spoiler:teleport, [[TimeStop modify his own perception of time]], resurrect the dead, and see the very fabric of the Timespace around him]]?
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Literally. Meldrath's machines are powered by human souls.
* DontTouchItYouIdiot: Well, Smoke touches it. A lot...
** DoubleEntendre ahoy.
* DoomMagnet: Anna, just... Anna
** As shown in this conversation:
->Feless: Dare I ask where [[spoiler:our daughter]] is at the moment Straha?
->Straha: I left her with Anna and the Monk.
->Feless: What?! You left her with the girl you call the walking death magnet and the boy you just call idiot?!
-> Straha: I hadn't quite thought about it in those terms, but yes...
* TheDragon: And how many!
* DressingAsTheEnemy: Anna's failed Necromancer make-up
* DualWielding: Straha and Nikisha
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: Meldrath's Lab
* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting: Smoke and [[EvilCounterpart Shade]]
* FaceHeelTurn: Kiran starts off simply as the UnluckyChildhoodFriend trying to get Anna home. However his complete inability to see her growth alongside his FantasticRacism against Iksar causes him to refuse to believe Anna wants to continue traveling of her own will, and Straha must be tricking her. This view is furthered by The Vision, who ultimately end up playing on his fear of losing Anna and indoctrinate him. By the Plane of Knowledge arc he's decked out in full Vision gear. [[spoiler:Though since Shade showed up he's been OutOfFocus.]]
* FantasticRacism: Wood and High elves are 'good' races. Trolls and Iskar are 'evil' races, (dispite many being rather nice). Obviously they hate each other.
* FighterMageThief: The main cast, obviously.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Straha
** TheLancer: Smoke
** TheChick: Anna
** TheSmartGuy: Maguna
** TheBigGuy: Penny
** TheSixthRanger: Khris
* FunetikAksent: Droodz
* GenkiGirl: Xianle, the Ranger. Apperantly, she spent a little ''too'' much time in the woods...
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: The bartender at the Maiden's Fancy pretty much says this [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_38 here.]]
* GiveHimANormalLife: [[spoiler: Or "her", in this case, as it refers to Katis.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Straha in "certain conditions"
* GoldfIshPoopGang: All the recurring villains seem to become this.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: [[spoiler: Implied that this happened to Lord Haxxor and caused him to form The Vision.]]
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Lord Haxxor, the main villain of the webcomic
* HulkSpeak: Look no further than Pennywise.
* IAmYourFather: [[spoiler: Straha isn't really the 'uncle' of Kaitis]]
* InTheBlood: Straha's Mana Channeling Ability
* JokeItem: Cardboard Box of Leet Ninja Skillz?
* LastOfHisKind: Smoke and Straha
** The former is actually subverted later by the appearance of [[EvilCounterpart Shade]].
*** [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?393_393 Doubly subverted]] by the introduction of an apparent third.
** Now the latter too. [[spoiler: Kaitis is also an "Ironscale"]]
* LaughablyEvil: Gomphe, and his undead frog, Igor
* LostLoveMontage: Both Maguna and Smoke gets one
* LoveableRogue: Nikisha, even though she's evil
** Which is now debatable, after she recently showed hints of an impending HeelFaceTurn
* MadScientist: Meldrath
* TheMafia: And they are halflings!
* MagicWarrior: Straha's Mana Mode
* TheMedic: Pie, Pennywise, and Anna, though the later only got effectively good at it recently
* Mooks: [[NightOfTheLivingMooks Zombie Mooks]], [[MechaMooks Mecha Mooks]], [[GiantMook Giant Mooks]], [[FacelessGoons Faceless Mooks]]...
* [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Minions With An F In Evil]]: The Gnome Monks
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Smoke, [[spoiler:after snapping out of his GodMode asskick-time]]
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Smoke blames himself for Shade killing the woman he used to love, which is the reason he is so over protective of Anna. Also Maguna to a certain extent, who felt guilty over the death of her husband but has since moved on.]]
* NebulousEvilOrganisation: The Vision
* NinjaPirateRobotZombie: Cyborg Skeletons, Cyborg Harpies, Cyborg Minotaurs and everything in Meldrath's lab (including Meldrath himself).
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Straha accidentally falling into the wrong hot spring at the wrong time, arriving in front of a naked Maguna and labeled as a pervert for all eternity
** In a subversion, he's a reptile and she's a high elf, so he should have absolutely no motivation for ogling. In a double subversion, it has been hinted that she might be [[InterSpeciesRomance interested in him]].
* NukeEm: Vision mages can cast a minor local Armageddon
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:Every time Smoke goes serious, most notably in [[http://www.s214135040.onlinehome.us/strip193.jpg this]] scene]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Straha, and the entire Iksar race
** Technically, Iksar aren't related to dragons at all. They're lizardmen, which is basically like a furry race, but with scales instead.
* PettingZooPeople: Khristalla the Bard
* PickyPeopleEater: See BrainFood above for the link to this being played straight in two different ways.
* PlayingWithFire: Maguna, just.. Maguna.
* PhysicalGod: Both Smoke and Shade are implied to be this. When using his powers, Smoke has been able to: [[spoiler: Alter perceptions of time to teleport instantly, destroy objects nobody is capable of destroying, effortlessly beat scores of Vision soldiers, whom even the [=GMs=] couldn't hurt, revive the dead, travel to different dimensions and see the very fabric of time and space. Shade later shows that he's just as capable when he murders an entire train effortlessly, and beats Vernil in seconds. When serious, neither can be touched by anything but each other.]]
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Infinite amounts of
* RPGMechanicsVerse
* RunningGag: "ACK! GET IT OFF!!! GET IT OFF!!! GET IT OFF!!!" or some variation in regards to one of the main characters being grappeled by one of the gnomish monks. Two examples can be seen [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_14 here]] and [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_51 here.]]
* ScheduleSlip: Can go without updates for months.
** Somewhat averted in that its author has never claimed to keep a schedule, and has stated since early on that he only updates when it is convenient.
** In an interesting case, it has been two years since the news page was updated, stopping around the time the comic itself went on a year-long hiatus. While comics have resumed, news has not.
* ShoutOut: [[http://wtfcomics.com/archive.html?999_999 To Solid Snake]].
** Also to Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion as seen [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_5 here.]]
** Also to Creator/CheechAndChong via the [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_53 KEI]] [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_177 junkies]] (also a bit of a RunningGag themselves).
** And to a scene from ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack''. [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_81 "Think thin, tubby"]] indeed.
** To [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor]] [[PrecisionFStrike Fucking]] [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?405_400 Who]].
*** (Which is just one of the more explicit allusions, considering Smoke's and Shade's ancient universe-spanning feud as the [[LastOfHisKind last of their kind]].)
* StandardFemaleGrabArea: Kiran uses this on Annashi in an attempt to bring her home. [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_105 More]] [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_106 than]] [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_120 once.]] [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_122 You'd think he'd learn.]]
* StormingTheCastle: Nearly every story arc starts like this.
* SummonMagic: Maguna's pretty good at it.
* TranquilFury: Straha lapses into this for one strip after seeing Anna wounded. He walks calmly outside, giving a WorldOfCardboardSpeech almost to himself, before snapping out of it and becoming enraged again. Short lived, but very intimidating.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?363_230 Dammit...this is gonna hurt.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?348_338 Oh god, Kaitis...]]]]
** Also arguably Anna. For a majority of the series she has been the obviously weakest member of the party, and has been delegated to mostly support. Then during the [[spoiler: Secrets of the Kylong]] arc, she goes toe to toe with Nikisha, a very powerful Rogue who works directly under Haxxor, and manages to push her. Hell she would have won had [[spoiler: Shade]] not interfered at last second. That's some pretty stunning growth from a girl who only an arc ago could barely fight.
*** Considering she's been seen at times being power leveled by her comrades it's not too much of a surprise she's grown so fast.
* {{Tsundere}}: Maguna Flamedancer, the living embodiment of this Trope
* UnfamiliarCeiling: The trope name is dropped in the first panel [[http://www.wtfcomics.com/archive.html?388_5 here]] in what may be a ShoutOut to the TropeNamer, Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion.
* UnstoppableRage: Straha, numerous times. And [[spoiler:Kaitis later proves it runs in the family.]]
** Smoke too, most notably after [[spoiler: Anna is wounded]]
* VillainousBreakdown: Nikisha suffers it a lot
* WeCanRebuildHim: Meldrath seems to live on this rule
** It's even Lampshaded by the Gnomish Monks.
* WeNeedADistraction: "Suuure... Monks pull everything."
* WeirdnessMagnet: Annashi. When she's around you run into stuff that totally violates the "Natural Laws" of the world they're in.
* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: After Nikisha attacks Anna in order to distract him, Smoke proceeds to deliver one of these to her. Oh, and keep in mind that while doing so he's also giving Nikisha a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown
-> '''Smoke:''' It's always the same... wherever I go, it's the same. People like you have no problem hurting the innocent to get at others... can't just come after who you really want. NO! You try to kill a kid who's only mistake was being a friend! Just leverage! A tool! Just like before, just like her! Well not again!
* WouldntHurtAChild: Nikisha, [[spoiler:opposing even Shade by letting Kaitis escape when no one's around]]
