Beware of spoilers, especially those of the season 1 finale!
open/close all folders
Chronic Hero Syndrome: Something they all share on one level or another, to the point it actualy starts to be a problem in the second season.
Fake Ultimate Heroes: They're all credited with stopping Nox in the first season finale, when in fact Nox had actually won, and had brought about his own downfall. Though Yugo came very close to actually defeating him. If Ogrest hadn't distracted him, he would have won.
Vitriolic Best Buds: When not saving each other, villagers and the world, you can find these guys walking through the woods loudly arguing with each other.
YugoThe hero of the series. Yugo is an Eliatrope, from a people capable of creating portals they can use to transport themselves or other objects across short distances, and who seem to be intimately connected to the world's history. Adventurous and kind-hearted almost to a fault, Yugo's quest to find out what happened to his people starts off the plot.
Adaptation Dye-Job: In the frame story of Legend of Ogrest, Yugo's hair is darker brown than in the main series.
Friend to All Living Things: An odd subversion. He believes that "You should care for all creatures with love"; however, many of the creatures he encounters on his journey try to kill him more often than not.
Heroic BSOD: Undergoes a subtle version of this during the first album of the manga feeling tremendous guilt for stranding Qilby in the void. Alibert talks him though it, pointing out that the fact Yugo feels guilty about something he had to do anyway shows what a great person he is, as does the sheer amount of people who came to celebrate his birthday.
I Am Who?: Finding out he is the last of the Eliatropes.
Kid Hero: A shockingly mature and responsible, yet still fun, example.
Let's Get Dangerous: He's usually around as fire support for the rest of his team where combat is concerned, but the art briefly shifts to portray him in a sketchy, heavy-lined style whenever he really freaks out. When it happens against Qilby, he erupts with Wakfu energy.
The Southpaw: At least in episode 25 of season 2, he holds an energy shield on his right hand and an energy sword on his left one, implying that he might be left-handed.
Sympathy for the Devil: He frequently finds himself sympathizing and sometimes forgiving villains when they show themselves to possess redeeming qualities. Tragically, he's sometimes the only one who does.
Thinking Up Portals: The first of his Eliatrope powers to develop, and the basis of most of them. Has no problems bringing Az and Adamai through them, but bringing others taxes his strength and gives them Teleportation Sickness.
Ruel StroudAn Enutrof and old friend of Yugo's adoptive father, Ruel was told to set off with Yugo and keep him safe. Like most Enutrofs, getting Ruel to do anything that's not in his own interest is an uphill battle, and his selfishness and greed often get him distracted. However, he's a seasoned fighter, and his knowledge of the world and its history is considerable.
Expansion Pack Past / Hidden Depths: Nasty old miser. Ex-bounty hunter. Very skilled fighter. Mayor of a dead city. Renowned Gobball champion? Heavy metal singer?
Fainting: Can happens to him if he's cornered into giving money.
Faking the Dead: Has suffered a number of inexplicably major but ultimately harmless "heart attacks" during convenient moments, like when it's time to pay for a meal. The only one who still falls for it is Yugo. He convinces everyone near the end of season two, to the point of getting buried just so he can look for treasure in the graveyard.
Kick the Dog: Frequently. In fact, his first appearance in the series has him nearly send a man to jail for stealing an apple. Then when we see him again he attacks two little Tofus because they were sitting on a Kama.
Licked by the Dog: By Yugo, Alibert, the RÚal Boitard and Nausea, all of whom he takes advantage of in various ways, but ultimately think of him as a good person.
Mr. Vice Guy: Ruel is a ferocious fighter, and probably the most talented of the gang, but his greed usually distracts him at crucial moments. Including the entirety of the final two episodes of the series, which he spends staring at a map and ignoring everything going on around him.
Old Master: Possesses far more issues than the usual sort.
Sir Tristepin Percedal (Pinpin) / Sir Sadlygrove Percedal (originally Dally, now Percy; called Grovy in the fansubs)A Iop and Shushu Guardian, Sadlygrove first encountered Yugo while being possessed by the Shushu he was supposed to guard; after Yugo smacked him out of it, Sadlygrove swore a debt to him. He's a talented swordsman and a loyal ally, but he's also impulsive and sometimes arrogant, which often gets him into trouble.
Adorkable: "You're beautiful in your new outfit, Evangelyne. You look more and more like a girl."
Bash Brothers: With Rubilax, particularly when in the Shushus' dimension in Season 2 Episode 9, although Rubilax vehemently denies it.
Blood Knight: He is thrilled by fights, danger and co. and will be more enthusiast with helping you if fighting is part of the job. But he will help you even if it's not since, as stated above, like all the other members of the group, he suffers Chronic Hero Syndrome. He even thinks helping people is what a hero does.
Book Dumb: He can barely read, often mispronounces words, and can't count very high.
Broken Pedestal: When some of his fans actually meet him, they aren't very impressed.
Character Development: He's grown from a poor fighter who was... really stupid to a great fighter who can see what happens to others.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: He's hopeless in any sort of intellectual field and usually gets blown away in the first five seconds of a fight due to rushing in prematurely, but put Sadlygrove in a dungeon and he's downright unstoppable, figuring out and surmounting every challenge near-instantly.
Dark-Skinned Redhead: As of season 1 episode 22, as a result of trekking across a large desert during daytime. It's pretty much a permament deep tan.
Determinator: When the stakes are high enough, hardly anything can keep him down. Crush him under tons of weight? He'll shake it off. Smack him across half a desert? Back on his feet in seconds. Dislocate his arms? He'll kick you to death.
Fatal Flaw: Sadlygrove is an inveterate show-off when he's not getting smacked around thanks to his Leeroy Jenkins tendencies. Though he's an enormously skilled fighter, his lack of concentration does him in more than not.
Good Old Fisticuffs: Likes to put aside Rubilax in favor of this for sparring or serious duels. Surprisingly, he's a fantastic hand-to-hand fighter, so it usually goes well for him.
Leeroy Jenkins: Might be one of the most brazen examples of these in history, as suicidal odds are considered a positive for him. Peaks when he joyfully attacks Rushu head-on, after recognizing he's unbeatable.
Evangelyne (Eva)Amalia's long-suffering CrÔ bodyguard and best friend, Evangelyne initially follows Yugo out of concern for Amalia, but soon becomes attached to the others as well. By far the most level-headed of the group, Eva helps keep her somewhat flighty compatriots grounded, and her archery is a force to be reckoned with.
Big Eater: Becomes one in the manga due to her pregnancy.
Boobs of Steel: Strongest female main character, biggest bust size. Justified in that she's also the oldest female main character at 17.
Bottomless Quiver: Never runs out of arrows, and fires them at a speed that would make a machine-gunner proud. Justified because her arrows are generated magically by the bow itself.
Break the Cutie: Episode 19 of season 1 was bad enough, but that's nothing compared to the finale.
Butt Monkey: Briefly, after Cleophelia joins the group.
The Cassandra: Nobody believes her about Sadlygrove being still alive, and think that she's just unable to get over his death. She even begins to question her own sanity too. Of course, she turns out to be right.
Conflict Ball: Her being a huge stick-in-the-mud throughout the whole Bontarian Gobbowl arc, and even telling Amalia that her childhood victories in the sport were fixed.
Cool Big Sis: Though her sister doesn't think she's that cool.
Her Heart Will Go On: Subverted in two different ways. At the beginning of Season 2 we see that she's unable to get over Sadlygrove's death, and thinks he's somehow still alive. Turns out she's right, and after Sadlygrove is saved, they resume their relationship.
Pregnant Badass: Heavily suggested she is in the last episode of Season 2. The issue is heavily discussed in the manga after Eva makes her pregnancy public. Amalia wonders if Eva should go on adventuring in her state (though she's okay with it, and even declares that she will be Eva's bodyguard in the meantime), and Sadlygrove completely opposes her going with them due to what may happen to her and the baby (wehich indeed causes some strife between them). Eva, on the other hand, firmly states that she is not going to be a traditional stay-at-home mom.
Season 1 episode 4. Oddly played with though, as she's trying to make herself look ugly by Letting Her Hair Down and putting on a "horrible" dress and high heels and thinks she looks ridiculous, even though it makes her gorgeous.
Teen Pregnancy: Hinted at the end of Season 2, confirmed in the follow-up manga.
Trauma Conga Line: The ending of season 1. First, her bow is broken by Grovy, who then leaves full of shame. Then, when she reunites with him, he gets killed shortly thereafter while protecting her. And if that wasn't enough, her friend Amalia is turned into a tree in front of her eyes. Ouch.
Trick Arrow: She has been shown using several different kinds of magic arrows with really various and sometimes unusual effects (at least for arrows).
Amalia Sheran Sharm (Ami)Amalia is the princess of the Sadidas, but isn't terribly fond of her royal duties and would much rather go out adventuring, often dragging a bemused Evangelyne in tow. Tagging along with Yugo mostly on a whim, she sometimes comes off as sheltered and immature, but won't hesitate to take responsibility when necessary.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She sometimes tends to act as a spoiled child, avoiding menial labor whenever she can and demanding others to do her bidding because she's a princess. However, deep inside she deeply cares about her friends and would do anything to help them when they're in danger.
Younger than She Looks: She's actually 13, just a year older than Yugo despite being almost twice his height. Sadidas in general are taller than most of the other races.
Adama´One of the world's last surviving Dragons and Yugo's brother, Adama´ formally joins the group halfway through the first season. As a Dragon, his powers are underdeveloped, but he's still a fairly skilled shapeshifter and manipulator of wakfu. Probably the most grounded member of the team besides Eva, and gets especially serious whenever the history of Dragons or Eliatropes is involved.
RubilaxSadlygrove's Shushu ward, Rubilax is the Shushu of Carnage, trapped inside a sword. When he actually contributes to a conversation, it's usually to tempt Sadlygrove into unleashing him so he can run amok; when sealed, he's just sort of a jerk.
Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After Goultard mortally wounded him, he begged the Iop to take him as his servant instead.
Enemy Mine: With Sadlygrove by letting him control the Super Mode in season 1 episode 25, and side-by-side in season 2 episode 9, "Rushu's World".
Evil Counterpart: He's basically all of Sadlygrove's bad traits concentrated and stuffed into a sword, right down to the self-conceit used to conceal hidden insecurities and lack of focus that ultimately leads to his many downfalls.
Kamasu-Tar JuniorA young dhreller who becomes Ruel's familiar over the course of season 1. Despite the Enutrof's initial reluctance to adopt one again, after the loss of the first Kamasu-Tar, Ruel did eventually warm up to the tenacious little critter.
Evangelyne's rebellious younger sister, who defected from the CrÔ ranks and took up wrestling. She joins the team after Eva is sent to find her. Contrary to other CrÔs seen on the show, she prefers hand-to-hand combat, though she also uses a crossbow. Described as a troublemaker by both Eva and Amalia.
Strong Family Resemblance: She looks a lot like Eva, the only noticeable differences (besides their haircuts) is that Cleo's face is a bit narrower, her chin is a bit more angular and her eyes are also a bit narrower. Lampshaded by Ruel.
Badass: Easily dodges Armand's attacks, the same Armand that curb-stomped Grovy in the previous episode. That is, after defeating his entire elite force. Oh, and there is that moment where he gives the finishing blow to the Razortimethat just killed Sadlygrove.
GrougaloragranAnother of the world's last surviving Dragons, Grougaloragran arranged an adoptive home for baby Yugo. He's probably one of the most powerful individuals on the planet, which unfortunately gets the attention of Nox.
AlibertYugo's adoptive father. An Enutrof and old adventuring companion of Ruel, although less greedy than his friend. Formerly a Bounty Hunter, but he found out he was too soft-hearted for the job when he refused to send a man to jail for stealing an apple — which made Grougaloran choose him for taking care of baby Yugo. So he settled in Emelka, founding an inn and becoming mayor of the town.
Kriss KrassA Sacrier Gobbowl champion and the main antagonist during the "Gobbowl Hell" arc. Kriss Krass isn't necessarily a bad guy, but he's a hopeless show-off, doing whatever he can to drag out a match and wring the last drops of admiration from his audience.
Disproportionate Retribution: Sadlygrove tells Armand he has pig breath. Armand's response is to try and kill him with a giant man-eating plant.
Foil: To Sadlygrove. Both are after Evangelyne, both are full of themselves and enjoy showing off and both are skilled warriors. But while Sadlygrove tries to fight with honor, Armand is more than willing to humiliate his opponents, or even go for the killing stroke, Sadlygrove prefers swords and melee attacks while Armand uses ranged combat with his plants, and finally while Grovy is fairly socially awkward, Armand is fully composed.
Invincible Hero: As the son of Iop, he's nigh indestructible, has absurd amounts of natural strength, and is even capable of coming back from the dead. That said, the interest in his adventures stem more from how his life is going to screw him over rather than whether or not it will end.
Superpowered Evil Side: Subverted with Dark Vlad, as he's not Goultard at his strongest, and while dangerous, he's also an "illiterate weirdo" who's too stupid to navigate his way out of a forest despite having dozens of maps of the area, which he is also incapable of reading.
Remington Smisse (Remi)A Roublard fixated on collecting Shushus, Remington is the second season's first primary antagonist, along with his brother, Grany. Remington is a charmer and a vicious fighter besides, but his recklessness, total lack of interest in anything but theft or Grany's safety, and constant double-crosses make him as dangerous an ally as an enemy.
Adaptational Wimp: He's a lot less intelligent, competent, and courageous than his comic book counterpart.
Aerith and Bob: His parents named him Remington and his brother Grany.
Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Tries to double-cross Eva twice within the same five minutes, the second time for practically no reason other than stone-headed bravado.
Death Seeker: Grany seems to think he's one, and Remington can't find it in himself to fully disagree.
Determinator: Given his overarching mission and his never-say-die attitude, this is a given. He also gives this piece of advice to Yugo when the latter claims he can't use his portals to get them out of Rushu's realm:
Remington: Such defeatism. There's always a solution, kiddo.
For everything contrasting Grovy, Remington successfully parallels with Evangelyne. Both are pointy-eared, long-ranged fighters (she's an archer; he's a gunner), remain in good posture when there isn't much action, calmly yet irritably put up with their comrades' antics, and contain a softer inner demeanor (she's a Tsundere; he's a Loveable Rogue that cares for his family). They differ largely in that Remington steals authentic weapons and backstabs nearly everyone For the Evulz, whereas Evangelyne was assigned to protect a princess and only ever snarks her way through her friends' antics. In contrast to her distant relationship with Cleophee, Remington is rarely apart from his own sibling, Grany.
In a rare three-fold counterpart, Remington is basically a younger and more charming Ruel. Both are criminals (Ruel's a Bounty Hunter; Remington's a thief), who place a high value on materials (money for Ruel; weapons for Remington) and screw over their compatriots on a whim (Ruel swindles his teammates for money; Remington backstabs Evangelyne after their Enemy Mine), but genuinely care for the well-being of their comrades, and look after a Morality Pet that keeps them from committing truly bad deeds (Grany for Remington; Yugo for Ruel).
Unskilled, but Strong: Wields several Shushu weapons in tandem; not very skilled with any (well, at least with his giant greatsword [originally his brother's weapon] or a giant hammer, but he's at the level of accuracy of Evangelyne with his guns), but utilizes each when the situation best requires it.
Victory Is Boring: He accepted a job to rob one of Bonta's wealthiest merchants of an enchanted mask, a job that would have required the use of several enchanted weapons to pull off. Grany advises against it, Remington decides to go for it anyway. He loves challenges.
Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Played with, he used this tactic by pretending to stab himself in the stomach as a child to steal his father's purse. When it looks like he's about to use the same trick in adulthood after apparently getting his torso ripped open, it's ultimately revealed that he really was critically injured and was muscling his way through the "Gambit" part of the trope.
Wrong Genre Savvy: A Badass girl wants a dagger placed in the middle of a throne room? Certainly the most powerful item of all!
Grany SmisseRemington's younger brother. Formerly The Big Guy of the duo, he's now stuck in a bow-meow body. However, he's still not totally harmless, and just as ruthless as Remington.
Made of Iron: His bow-meow form embodies this trope more so than his original human form. To whit, he was once kicked so hard into a stone pillar that he became embedded into it. Shortly after, he walked it off.
Fake Ultimate Hero: Played with. He certainly likes to view himself as a hero, but he's courteous enough to give credit where it is due (i.e. complimenting Yugo's gang for helping out against Anathar).
The Masked Gobbowler/ MaudeA champion gobbowler, the captain of the BrÔkmarian team Brak'n'Black, whose name and face are kept hidden for the simple reason that she's a woman, whom are not allowed to play Gobbowl in BrÔkmar. Her real name is Maude, and she's an old acquaintance, trainer and love interest of Kriss Krass.
Asskicking Equals Authority: Played with. Maude's a very powerful Gobbowler, and she was the leader of both teams that she played alongside. In BrÔkmar, said position of champion even gives the Masked Gobbowler some power over justice decisions, like when given the choice to accept or refuse Kriss' challenge.
Cool Mask: Justified; that mask is to hide that she's a girl, since BrÔkmarian Gobbowl doesn't allow female members to play in the game.
Dark Is Not Evil: Half of her outfit is black, and while she is brutal, she's far from a villain.
Dramatic Unmask: In season 2 episode 11, the Masked Gobbowler takes off the mask.
Facial Markings: Underneath the mask, she has large cheek tattoos descending from her eyes down to the length of her chin, and one on her nose.
Famed in Story: Apparently quite well-known amongst Gobbowl fans and players.
Elaine and Encre Noir / Black InkA father-daughter pirate duo. While Elaine is human, her father is an octopus, but the episode "The Bellaphone Island" reveal that Elaine is adopted. They're hired by the Brotherhood of the Tofu to take them to the Crimson Claw Island.
The Alleged Ship: They own a tumbledown ship, which was the only ship cheap enough for Ruel to hire.
Badass in Distress: In the episode they're introduced, Elaine is captured by a pirate lord, yet she still managed to give one of her captors a beatdown.
Spin-Off: Like many other characters of this series, they got their own comic book, Tangomango.
Prince AdaleThe prissy, effeminate, tea-sipping prince of the lost kingdom of New Sufokia. He shows up at the Crimson Claws Archipelago with an army of militarized submarines, aiming to subdue Phaeris the Powerful and strip the islands of the ore that fuels his machines. He and his forces inadvertently become key players in the series' final battle.
Aristocrats Are Evil: Averted, assuming he was being honest when he claimed Sufokia was a "peaceful nation".
Nay-Theist: He doesn't consider that real gods exist — only some beings with abnormal powers.
Not So Stoic: He loses his mind when his personal vessel is damaged, pitching a red-faced tantrum all over the helm.
Reasonable Authority Figure: He doesn't particularly care if Yugo and co. get caught up in his salvo of energy weapons, but he refrains from going after them personally and quickly backs down in the face of Amalia's counsel.
Spanner in the Works: The presence of his navy completely scuttles Qilby's plan to sic an army of Shushus on Yugo and Phaeris, since they immediately begin bombarding Rushu's army and tip him off that Qilby wasn't being honest.
Frida MofetteA Sufokian and right-hand woman to Prince Adale, General Mofette defers reluctantly to his authority despite her being suspicious of those who might obstruct their plans...and becomes just slightly enthuiastic when going into battle.
Phaeris the PowerfulThe third Dragon to be properly introduced in the series, Phaeris makes his roost on the Crimson Claws Archipelago, and ferociously guards it against invaders. He's stationed there to prevent Qilby from reuniting with his dragon sister, Shinonome, and was responsible, along with Yugo, for defeating and sealing Qilby many years ago.
Arch-Enemy: To Qilby. Phaeris personally views him with nothing but contempt, but Qilby is livid with Phaeris for taking his arm.
Badass Bureaucrat: If what Qilby is to be believed, he and his sister were the ones of the Counsel of 12 that disputed all of the quarrels with their people.
Qilby: You never had a warrior's soul in you, Balthazar. Go back and bury your head in your books.
Cool Old Guy: A teacher and caretaker for the Eliatrope children.
ChibiGrougaloragran's Eliatrope sibling, first appearing early in season two when Grougal's reincarnated form and he hatch from their Dofus as a result of Yugo and Adamai's experiments with the Eliacube; spends the rest of the season being cared for by Alibert.
Nox/ Noximilien CoxenA Xelor who serves as the first season's primary antagonist, Nox is both incredibly powerful and quite insane. He travels the world and drains wakfu from everything he finds, reducing whole regions to barren wastelands. The series begins with him encountering Grougaloragran, and his obsession with the Dragon and his enormous supply of wakfu eventually sets him in opposition to Yugo.
Nox: If you could redeem yourself for a terrible mistake for the price of some lives, would you do it?
Awesome but Impractical: His time-stop ability is broken each time he uses it. Perhaps a subversion, as all those who have successfully broken out of the spell have suffered long term effects. His Sword Beam also counts.
Ax-Crazy: His obsession with the Eliacube and bringing back his familyreally took its toll on his sanity.
Battle Aura: He surges with wakfu when he pulls out all the stops.
Beyond the Impossible: His ultimate plan. Take note that time manipulations isn't unheard of in this setting; Some characters have managed to travel back and forward through time; Powerful Xelors and the god himself can cause indefinite time loops over certain areas. Nox on the other hand, doesn't want to do any of that. He wants to reverse time for the entire Krosmos and ultimately succeeds...in a fashion.
Big Bad: For the first season, though he's more hands-on (and sympathetic) than most examples.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: His tactics in season 1 episode 25 show him to be pretty intimidating. Final battles against entire armies are for suckers.
When fighting Ig˘le, Adama´ quickly recognize his collar as a source of extra power and try to remove it. The moment he tries, he learns the collar is booby trapped and time freezes him long enough for Ig˘le to get a free shot.
Heel Realization: Tragically, only after it is far too late to take anything back.
Horror Hunger: Claims to have this in the beginning of the series, but it's ultimately subverted as he's not using the wakfu to feed himself, but his plans.
I Am Not Left-Handed: He almost never goes full out due to his frugal nature, but his fight with Grougaloragran reveals just how powerful he can be.
Knight of Cerebus: While he's present since the beginning, we don't really see how serious he gets until season 1 episode 13. If you want to see just how serious things get with him... had he won, the first season would've had a happier ending.
Laughing Mad: He giggles to himself with every other line, and that's on a good day.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Wants his family back, after severely neglecting them over an object and indirectly causing their deaths, so he's stealing the wakfu (life energy) from plants, animals and people to use it to travel back in time to change the past, thereby indirectly reverting all of his atrocities along the way.
Wind-Up Key: The hole in his chest is there for a reason.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Most definitely. It's bad enough when you realize why he's the Big Bad, but in the finale when he realizes that two centuries of work were for absolutely nothing, you can't help but feel for the guy.
Worthy Opponent: Nox isn't one for using the names of others, a bit understandable given that his grand scheme would make doing so rather pointless. However, he has a tendency to call those he respects by name instead of blithe insults. The list is incredibly small and consists of Grougaloragran, Alibert, and eventually Yugo.
Villainous Breakdown: After his grand scheme finally unfolds, only to end up discovering that 200 years' worth of collecting wakfu could only send him back in time by about 20 minutes, Nox degenerates into a ranting mess, screaming at the Eliacube and demanding to know why it "betrayed" him. It ultimately results in...
Villainous BSOD: After Yugo chews him out for committing 200 years of atrocities because of his insane delusions, Nox finally has a Heel Realization, and doesn't put up a fight when the soldiers of Sadida show up to arrest him. In the end, he just bids Yugo a morose farewell before teleporting away, leaving the Eliacube behind.
Ig˘leNox's pet. Ig˘le's collar has been tinkered with by his master, making him incredibly fast.
Monster Sob Story: Ig˘le has been stuck for two hundred years with Nox, subject to his ramblings and occasional death threats, and most likely being kept alive by unstable magic just so that Nox can have some remnant of his old life. It's left the poor animal rather highly strung. His last appearance also strongly implies that he pines after the absence of Nox's children, which ultimately forms the basis of his Heel-Face Turn.
RushuThe feared king of the Shushus and a demon attempting to become the thirteenth god of the World of the Twelve, Rushu is a Card-Carrying Villain and proud of it. Though he's confined to the razed Shushu realm, he still delights in causing destruction wherever he can, and seeks to escape to Yugo's world so he and the other Shushus can start ruining things in earnest.
Art Evolution: His initial design for the show was of a buff, sculpted, masked demon.
Bad Boss: Rushu terrifies even the major Shushus. He's seen using minor ones as projectiles, incinerates a bunch of others just because they were in the way, and continues to demean Rubilax even after the guy accomplished something pretty profound for the time. To exemplify how bad of a boss he is, most of Xelor's demonic lieutenants used to work for Rushu until they defected due to his insufferable behavior.
Big Bad: The second season seems to be setting him up as the main antagonist at the start, although after Qilby's reveal, he's part of the Big Bad Duumvirate at best.
Bigger Bad: Technically. He is essentially the ruler of the underworld, in charge of most malevolent forces of the setting, the evil equivalent of gods, and quite literally invincible. When he came to earth, it took another Physical God to stop him.
God of Evil: To the Shushus as he is their creator, and the fact that he is highly abusive toward all of them, not to mention his Card-Carrying Villain tendencies.
Green-Eyed Monster: Longs to be acknowledged as a god and gain worshippers, even going so far as to commission one of his minions to create BrÔkmar to that end.
Hijacked by Ganon: Rather than introduce a new antagonist from the get-go, Season 2 has opted to use Rushu, a longstanding malevolent character in Dofus and Wakfu lore, as its initial Big Bad.
Instant Armor: In season 2 episode 24, he carves himself a giant armor out of a few submarines.
Jerkass: So far that we've seen, he's a straight-up bully. He uses his minions as projectiles, incinerates several more because they were in the way, drinks through a straw made out of someone's spine, destroyed everything else in his world (apart from the Shushu) and wants to invade the human world out of boredom.
AnatharRushu's right hand, Anathar resembles a giant humanoid jackal with the ability to copy the powers of whoever strikes him. He's cruel even by Shushu standards, and anyone who knows of him dreads the possibility of him becoming unsealed. Confined to a cape.
Sizeshifter: Becomes one when he steals Rubilax's power in season 2 episode 9.
Unwitting Pawn: Qilby baits him into entering the fray immediately, just so he'll keep fighting even after Rushu learns of Qilby's treachery. Anathar goes on to be the only reason Qilby isn't immediately splattered by Phaeris.
Ombrage / ShadofangA major Shushu who's confined to a ring, Shadofang is an exemplary member of her kind — ruthless, cruel, manipulative, and an insufferable gossip. Her primary ability is to steal the shadows of others, increasing her power and turning her victims into mindless ghouls under her command.
QilbyAn elderly Eliatrope who emerges from the Eliacube when Yugo and Adama´ finally use it in the second season. Qilby tells the story of the Eliatropes and their ultimate fate, and his request to the group kicks off the bulk of the second season's plot. He's a kind, grandfatherly type who possesses considerable knowledge of wakfu, but seems troubled about something in his past. He is, in fact, a unique Eliatrope capable of remembering all his past lives, which eventually turned him into a nihilistic lunatic who destroyed the Eliatrope homeworld because he was fed up with their idleness. Now proclaiming himself the "true ruler" of his people, he's been using the Zinit to travel from world to world, sucking each one dry of its Wakfu, and endlessly striking down Yugo and Adama´ whenever they try to stop him.
Yugo: If you want to leave, go ahead. Don't mind us. Qilby: Shut up! Yugo: But no matter what you say, you'll be leaving alone! Qilby: (attacks) Shut! UUUUUUUUUP!
Blessed with Suck: And how! As one of the original six Eliatropes and their dragon siblings, Qilby is immortal. Unlike the other five, Qilby remembers all his past lives. This might seem pretty useful, and probably was for a while, but after thousands of years, being unable to forget (or die to escape it) has driven him well and truly insane.
Blood Knight: While he isn't above calling people idiots for fighting, boy does he love a good fight! The grins he gives while clashing with Yugo and Adamai are just gleeful.
Hoist by His Own Petard: After acting like the rightful king of the Eliatropes, he's finally attacked by the entire enraged Eliatrope race. And after scheming the whole season to reclaim his sister Shinonome, she delivers the final blow.
It's All About Me: Boy Howdy! Especially apparent when he starts explaining his motives. Basically, he destroyed the Eliatrope civilization and wants to do worse to the World of Twelve because he doesn't want to be "confined" to one planet. When called out on the destruction and death he's caused, he accuses them of not taking his feelings into account.
Mr. Exposition: His intro episode consists of a long tale of the Eliatropes, their history, and their leaders. But it contains at least one huge lie.
My God, What Have I Done?: Pointedly averted. Even when he's been totally beaten and his own sister says that he went too far, he refuses to feel remorse for any of his actions.
My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Supplemental materials suggest that the Eliatropes were by and large a cultured, peaceful race, despite their immense power. Qilby is proof that it takes just one madman with that kind of power to ruin everything for everyone else.
Nietzsche Wannabe: Believes that his unique memory has given him insight into the unimportance of individual lives, leaving him to focus on more important matters like freely roaming and observing the universe, collateral damage be damned.
Old Master: Probably knows more about wakfu than anyone else living.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Averted, in comparison to Nox. Qilby says he's ravaging planets in an effort to find a perfect home for his people, but he really just wants to cruise the Krosmos, regardless of whatever happens to others because of it.
Who Wants to Live Forever?: The only one of the immortal Eliatropes to remember all his past incarnations, making him far older mentally than his kin, he does not enjoy it at all and it estranges him from the others. He says he wanted to leave his Eliatrope homeworld because it became too small for him after living in it for so long in the season 2 finale.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Okay, so Qilby's completely nuts without any redeeming motivation, unlike Nox. But when you imagine that he's been living his every past lives, remembering every moment, never forgetting while his friends would forget him eventually and he had to constantly remind them of their relationship... Not even dying would let him forget to start anew. Qilby's virtually stuck in a reincarnative version of And I Must Scream.
On the other hand, his dragon sister Shinonome seems to understand what's been happening and begs him to stop despite still being in her egg; implying that she shared the same memory-retaining ability as Qilby. The fact that she remained to be on the side of good means that Qilby isn't fully excused from his mass genocides and selfish motives.
JivaFirst appearing (as part of Wakfu - she was part of Dofus lore since the beginning) in the Manga, Jiva is the guardian of Cold and Winter and protector of the month of Javian (the Krosmos equivalent of January). She appears during Yugo and Adama´'s birthday party demanding the six Elliatrope Dofus. She also easily curbstomps the brotherhood of tofu and Phaeris, slaying him in exchange for sparing everyone else's lives.
Big Bad: Of the Manga thus far. (This is a big change from her Dofus-era version, where she's a benevolent goddess who founded Bonta, the White City, and is keeping Rushu's minion Djaul, Protector of Decendre, from taking over the other months)
