Beware of spoilers, especially those of the season 1 finale!

    open/close all folders 

The Heroes

  • 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.
  • Fire-Forged Friends
  • Five-Man Band
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot
  • Tagalong Kid: With the exception of Yugo and Ruel, the rest of the Brotherhood joined the quest for various, but undeniably petty reasons.
  • True Companions
  • Two Girls to a Team: In season 1, the first half of season 2, and the manga.
  • 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.

    Yugo 
Yugo

The 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.

    Az 
Az

Yugo's pet Tofu and oftentimes comic relief. His feathers were enchanted by Grougaloragran to deliver some messages to Alibert and Yugo.

    Ruel Stroud 
Ruel Stroud

An 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.

  • Badass Beard
  • Badass Grandpa
  • Bag of Holding: The Havresac.
  • Berserk Button: Anyone who steals a single Kama off him had better get ready for war.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Yes and no. Made an awesome comeback to save Eva and Amalia, but unfortunately was too late to save Sadlygrove.
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Children Raise You
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Covert Pervert
  • Cowardly Lion: He can handle himself in a fight, and even suggested to be the most powerful member of the group. But he would rather flee or hide from a battle if he can.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Drill Tank: Has one in the season 1 finale.
  • 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.
  • Greed: And how.
  • High-Pressure Emotion: He is subject to getting red-faced with a teakettle sound when very upset. Notably in "A Fistful of Kamas" when dealing with the pirates who've stolen his gold.
  • Improbable Weapon User: A shovel.
  • Jerkass: Starts out as this, but traveling and befriending Yugo ultimately results in...
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's grumpy skinflint that values friendship... at a lower priority than money.
  • 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.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Agile and strong despite his old age.
  • Loners Are Freaks: An affable and sociable example, but a life of loss and loneliness has turned him into an amoral, selfish miser.
  • Miser Advisor
  • Money Fetish
  • Morality Pet: When he's separated from Yugo later in the first season, his morals and scruples take a significant nosedive.
  • Mr. Exposition
  • 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.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: His shovel when thrown.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He doesn't look young, of course, but he's apparently been around since before the Ogrest's Chaos, a thousand years before - and he wasn't young then, either.
  • Shaggy Dog Story: After digging under the Sadida Kingdom for a long time, he doesn't get to keep any of the gold he finds.
  • Shovel Strike
  • The Smart Guy
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: With his shovel.
  • Toilet Humor: Sometimes the subject of this.
  • Tricked-Out Shoes

    Sadlygrove Percidal 
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.

    Evangelyne 
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.
  • Heterosexual Life Partner: With Amalia.
  • Heroic BSOD: Having the two people she cares the most for die right in front of her pushes her way past her limit
  • Important Haircut: In the first episode of season 2.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Is capable of firing a recall arrow over a distance of at least two days' travel by dragoturkey and hitting exactly where she aimed.
  • 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.
  • Super Senses: Most notably greatly enhanced vision,
  • 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).
  • Tsundere: Towards Grovy.

    Amalia Sheran Sharm 
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.

    Adama´ 
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.

    Rubilax 
Click here to see Rubilax unsealed 
Rubilax

Sadlygrove'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.

    Kamasu-Tar Junior 
Kamasu-Tar Junior

A 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.

    Grufon 
Click here to see Grufon unsealed 
Grufon

The Brotherhood's talking map; actually an imprisioned minor Shushu, and a general all-around jerk.

  • Affably Evil: Really just more of a jerk.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: As a minor Shushu, is regarded with laughing contempt by major Shushu (even Rubilax mocks him).
  • Happiness in Slavery: Is overjoyed by Yugo's agreeing to be his Guardian, making him the first minor Shushu ever to have one, and never once attempts to escape from his map afterwards
  • Jerkass: Demands to be buttered up to actually present any information, and even then is likely to steer you wrong, just because he can.
  • Literal Genie: He'll try to blame the heroes on not being specific enough whenever he leads them astray.
    Grufon: You didn't tell me you wanted a working harbor!
  • MacGuffin: Both in episode 3, where the team has to beat The Black Raven to acquire him, and again at the start of season two when he's the reason Remington is tracking down Eva.
  • Power Copying: When his map gets eaten by an arachnee in Season 1 Episode 13, Grufon not only gets released, but he gains the arachnee's ability to spin webs.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Or Sealed Jackass in a Map in this case.

    Cleophelia 
Cleophelia / ClÚophÚe

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.

    Master Joris 
Master Joris

The emissary of Bonta in the Sadida Kingdom. One of the main characters of the Kerubim series, when he still was a child. He joins the group in the Manga.

Allies & Friendly Enemies

    Grougaloragran 
Click here to see Grou's Season Two form 
Grougaloragran

Another 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.

    Alibert 
Alibert

Yugo'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 Krass 
Kriss Krass

A 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.

    Armand Sheran Sharm 
Armand Sheran Sharm

The prince of the Sadidas, Amalia's brother, and a royal ass. Suffers from a terrible case of halitosis.

    Goultard 
Goultard

Sadlygrove's Iop master, and Badass extraordinaire.

    Remington Smisse 
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.
  • Affably Evil: Charming, flappable, deadly.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: With their father having been the "King of the Roublards" at one point, Remington and Grany are technically royalty.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Eva in "Rubilaxia". They get captured anyway.
  • Badass Cape: More of a cloak, but it has the same impact.
  • Beard of Evil
  • BFS: His Shushu sword.
  • Big Brother Instinct: This used to be Grany's thing, until circumstances led to Remington taking it upon himself to protect his brother.
  • Big "Shut Up!": Whenever his half-dozen Shushus get REALLY chatty.
    Remington: SILENCE, SHUSHUS! I can't even hear myself killing!
  • Bolivian Army Ending: His last scene in "Rushu's World".
  • 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.
  • Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: Every single time he decides to backstab after an Enemy Mine, it usually blows up in his face.
  • Disney Villain Death: Survives it, though.
  • The Easy Way or the Hard Way: With rhyming to boot.
  • Enemy Mine: With Maskemane in Maxi-Mini and Evangelyne in "Rubilaxia".
  • Evil Counterpart: The basic premise of his character is to parallel that of the protagonists'.
    • Along with a noseless face and boneheaded tendencies, Remington shares the same desire for thrills and flashy gestures as Grovy, which gets both into trouble just as often as the sun sets, but their differences are aplenty — their Shushu weaponry contrasts (Grovy prefers swords; Remington's better with guns), their colorscheme is reversed (white for Grovy; black for Remington), their amount of clothing is inverted (Grovy is a Walking Shirtless Scene; Remington only reveals his lower chin), their combat styles reflect their mindsets (Grovy is impulsive and reckless; Remington is agile and precise), their heritages outline their goals (Grovy came from a humble village; Remington hails from a long line of thieves), and their skin tones are polar opposites (Grovy is a Dark-Skinned Redhead; Remington is closest to an Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette).
    • 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).
  • Expressive Mask
  • Family Values Villain: Along with the Roublards in general, as family is the only thing they value over wealth.
  • For the Evulz: He sure likes to be a backstabbing dick for the sake of being a backstabbing dick, even though his every act of pointless villainy ends poorly for him.
  • Guns Akimbo: His Shushu pistols.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He opts to stay behind in Rushu's World to try and save his brother Grany.
  • Hidden Depths: A conniving thief and sneak, who is nonetheless quite talented at sewing and carpentry. That's not even going into how far he'll go for his family.
  • The Highwayman
  • Indy Ploy: Deconstructed; they tend to go badly for him.
  • Kick the Dog: When he threw Evangelyne off a ledge, right after she released him from prison.
  • Kill the God: Is aiming to become powerful enough to challenge and defeat Ush Galesh, an Ecaflip demigod to remove his brother's curse.
  • Loveable Rogue: "Roublard" is the French word for rogue.
  • Meaningful Name: Remington and Smith & Wesson are both popular brands of firearms, which fits with his fetish for weapons.
  • The Musketeer
  • The Noseless: Only in the cartoon.
  • Le Parkour
  • Licked by the Dog: Yugo expresses remorse and admiration when Remington opts to stay in the Shushu realm to try and save his brother.
  • Pet the Dog: Genuinely cares for the safety of his brother.
  • Pointy Ears
  • Power Fist: His Shushu gauntlet.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: His Shushu dagger/scimitar, though he's missed most of the times he's thrown it.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: A notable subversion of the Blue Oni to Grany's Red, as while more calm and collected, Remington is prone to reckless, grandiose action.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Remington's deep-voiced Shushu sword is actually female.
  • Sesquipedalian Smisse
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With his brother Grany.
  • Sticks to the Back: His Shushu sword.
  • Talking Weapons: He carries half a dozen of them.
  • Ungrateful Bastard
  • Unorthodox Sheathing
  • 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.
  • Villain Protagonist: He got his own comic!
  • Walking Armory: Possesses and uses several Shushu weapons at once.
  • 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 Smisse 
Grany Smisse

Remington'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.

    The Justice Knight 
The Justice Knight

He is a KNIGHT of JUSTICE. Clad in blinding golden armor and hammier than a pig farm, he and his father were in charge of keeping Anathar sealed.

    The Masked Gobbowler 
Click here to see the Masked Boufbowler unmasked 
The Masked Gobbowler / Maude

A 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.
  • Fanservice Extra: Her off-duty outfit in the flashback.
  • Kamehame Hadoken
  • Kuudere: To an extent.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Usual strategy when playing Gobbowl.
  • Number of the Beast: Close enough; the Masked Gobbowler's player number is 665.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: As long as her true identity is secret.
  • Opera Gloves: Part of her off-duty outfit; elbow-length gloves that reveal the top half of her hands.
  • Panty Shot: Though it almost functions like smaller-scale shorts, she still gets one when she uses her Kamehame Hadoken onto a wall.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: The Masked Gobbowler has a very complex and precise control of gobballs.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Justified, for the same reason that she wears a mask.
  • Sexy Mentor: One thing's for sure; Kriss has great taste in women.
  • Ship Tease: With Kriss.
  • Stripperific: Elbow-length gloves, thigh-highs, a bra, panty-shorts, and a very short pocket-thing with a long loincloth.
  • The Rival: To Kriss, ironically.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Doesn't wear a skirt, but it still counts.

     Elaine and Encre Noir 
Elaine and Encre Noir / Black Ink

A 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.

    Prince Adale 
Prince Adale

The 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".
  • Beauty Mark
  • Foreshadowing: The series is technically over at this point, but the ending credits show him constructing some kind of fortress over the archipelago. New Sufokia is on the rise.
  • Hidden Depths: Initially comes off as just another pompous, corrupt monarch, but shows glimpses of a steely will against his opponents.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • 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.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Spearheaded the Crimson Claws voyage specifically because he didn't want to be seen as an idle monarch.
  • 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.
  • Spot of Tea
  • The Stoic: Faces down a charging dragon and the entire population of the Shukrute with nothing more than mild annoyance.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: His strategy for anything hostile on Crimson Claws is to bombard it with Frickin' Laser Beams until it stops twitching.

    General Mofette 
Frida Mofette

A 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 Powerful 
Click here to see Phaeris' true form 
Phaeris the Powerful

The 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.

    Balthazar 
Balthazar

A red dragon who's been taking care of the Eliatrope children/orphans in their dimension. Implied to have been a teacher/scholar.

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.

    Chibi 
Chibi

Grougaloragran'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.

The Villains

    Nox 
Nox / Noximilien Coxen

A 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.

  • Anti-Villain (Type 2)
  • The Atoner: At least from his point of view.
    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 family really took its toll on his sanity.
  • Bad Boss: Towards his minions.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • 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.
  • Busman's Vocabulary
  • Clothing Damage: In his fight against Grougaloragran. We still don't see any of his skin, though.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Living for so long with only an ancient relic for a companion has made him go a little crazy.
  • Cool Sword: One shaped like a giant clock hand.
  • 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.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Back when he actually had skin and hair to show.
  • Deflector Shields: Still with a clockwork theme. Notably to stop Grougal's fire breath.
  • Determinator: He's been collecting wakfu to bring his family back for 200 years.
  • Driven to Suicide: Or just finally died since the Cube wasn't prolonging his life anymore, its ambiguous.
  • Dying Alone: His final fate, as revealed in the credits.
  • Expressive Mask
  • Evil Laugh: His frequent bouts of completely psychotic laughter are the first indication that he has a few screws loose behind his fašade of calm and smug superiority.
  • The Faceless: To the point where it's easy to think that his mask is his face.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Wavers between this and outright patronizing.
  • Flanderization: In-universe example; by season 2, the entire world, having no way of knowing of his sympathetic aims, have cast him in the role of a generic, power-hungry villain.
  • Flight
  • From Nobody to Nightmare
  • Gadgeteer Genius: In the beginning, 200 years ago.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom
  • Goal in Life: Set Right What Once Went Wrong by going back in time to save his family, and coincidentally reverse every atrocity he's committed along the way. He fails.
  • 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.
  • Leitmotif: A few, all of which feature the ticking or chiming of clocks. Used for sinister foreshadowing in the Start of Darkness episode, when the beginning of Noximilien's descent into madness is accompanied by his villainous leitmotif from the beginning of the series.
  • Mad Scientist: What he developped into during the last 200 years.
  • Magic Knight: He's got the armor, he's got the spells, and he's even got the sword.
  • Meaningful Name
  • Mummies at the Dinner Table: Of a sort: Nox keeps a mechanical puppet theatre that he uses to reenact scenes with his family.
  • Noble Demon: More Ax-Crazy than usual but he wants his family back and has a twisted respect for fathers that would die for their families i.e. Alibert.
  • Not So Different: Invokes this with Alibert.
  • One-Winged Angel: It doesn't last very long, though.
  • Power Floats
  • Power Glows
  • Really 700 Years Old: Exact age is unknown, but as mentioned above, he's been stealing wakfu for 200 years.
  • Sphere of Power: His time-stops.
  • Start of Darkness: A bonus episode was produced depicting Nox's life before the Eliacube, and how he came to be obsessed with gathering wakfu.
  • Sword Beam
  • This Cannot Be!: Has so many variations of of this that it's practically a catchphrase, especially in the season 1 finale.
  • Teleport Spam: Uses it a lot, either to get away from someone, to dodge an attack, or to taunt them.
  • Time Master: Not as much as he would like to be.
  • Time Stands Still: In a notable example, he uses it during his fight against Grougaloragran, right as he was about to punch a battered Nox in the face.
  • Tragic Monster
  • Tragic Villain
  • Tron Lines
  • The Unfettered
  • 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.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity
  • 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.
  • Wrong Time-Travel Savvy: First subverted, then played straight. Grougaloragran believed that Nox's plan will most likely destroy the universe, if Nox actually manages to put the magic in motion, and Nox recognized the possibility, but managed to perform the time rewind without disastrous consequences. But, of course extreme danger associated with reversing time meant that Nox had only one attempt to do so, and therefore couldn't confirm how catastrophically he underestimated wakfu requirements for time reversal.
    Nox: TWENTY MISERABLE MINUTES!!!

    Rushu 
Click here to see his true form 
Rushu

The 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.
  • Big "Shut Up!": Rushu is fond of doing this to assert his authority.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Wanting to play games with the heroes gives them a chance to escape, although two of them don't quite make it.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: And how.
  • Combat Tentacles: In his true form.
  • Creepy Monotone: It doesn't last, but he becomes much more low-key once he assumes his true form. After all his previous bombast, it's a little unsettling.
  • Cyclops: In his true form.
  • Demon Lords and Archdevils: He's the king of the fairly demonic-looking Shushus.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: If you're facing Rushu, lacking respect for him is downright suicidal — unless your name is Goultard....
  • Drop the Hammer: A hammer the size of a building, mind you.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot
  • Evil Overlord: He's the ruler of the Shushu in their own dimension.
  • Face Palm: Performs one when he thought Anathar accidentally crushed his precious Eliatrope prisoner.
  • Finger Poke of Doom: He can send Sadlygrove and Rubilax flying with the poke of a finger.
  • Fire Feet
  • Flight
  • Horned Humanoid
  • A Glass in the Hand: He crushes his cup at the beginning of the "Rush".
  • 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.
  • Large and in Charge
  • Lovecraftian Superpower
  • Magic Mirror: Communication with Rushu is allowed through Igor the Shushu mirror.
  • Number of the Beast: The Zerg Rush in Rushu's World consists of fighting 666 minor demons.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Rushu wants to invade the human world. Why? Because there's nothing left to destroy in the Shushu world.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Averted; as soon as it looks like the heroes are about to escape, Rushu charges after them.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Qilby decks him right between the eyes with a fully-charged punch from his Wakfu arm. He doesn't even react.
  • Throat Light
  • Umbrella Drink: Rushu enjoys searing lava drinks in a skull cup, complete with a boney drinking straw and umbrella.
  • Volcanic Veins
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Rushu pitches a fit whenever he sees a bow-meow. It is implied he would react this way to anything cute and fluffy.
  • Wreathed in Flames: And his lower body can become fire.

    Anathar 
Anathar

Rushu'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.

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's Rushu's top general, and he's one of the strongest fighters here.
  • Bad Boss: Like Rushu, he has absolutely no problem with crushing minor Shushus who just happens to be in the way.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: Anathar with his red/black shukrute portals instead of Yugo's blue/white wakfu portals. He is even able to surpass the two-simultaneous-portal limitation.
  • Belly Mouth
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Whenever he compliments his boss, he replaces the positive pronouns with negative ones, like "my despicable king".
  • Chained by Fashion: After escaping from the Justice Knight's prison, Anathar keeps the enormous manacles and chains around his huge wrists.
  • Combat Tentacles: Anathar can conjure pitch-black tentacles directly from Rushu's dimension through portals. They're agressive enough that they even seize their summoner if he gets too close.
  • Demonic Possession
    • Anathar was the Shushu possessing the Justice Knight's father.
    • And from episode 24 of season 2, he's taken possession of Adama´'s body.
  • The Dragon: To Rushu, being his top general. He later becomes a LITERAL dragon after possessing Adama´.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: His head nearly doubles in size when he bares his fangs.
  • Power Copying: He can copy any power if he has contact with its user.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was imprisoned in a cape guarded by the Justice Knight Senior.
  • 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.

    Shadofang 
Ombrage / Shadofang

A 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.

    Qilby 
Click here to see Qilby's true form 
Qilby

An 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.

  • An Arm and a Leg: He lost his left arm.
  • Beam Spam: As demonstrated in his fight against Adamai.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Forms one with Rushu as of Episode 20.
  • Big "Shut Up!": Gives one when Yugo correctly pinpoints his crippling loneliness, and triggers the start of his Villainous Breakdown.
    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.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Cool Airship: The Zinit
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Something definitely bad happened to Qilby before he met Yugo.
  • Energy Ball
  • Evil Cripple: Although after he revealed himself to be evil, he got rid of the cripple part. He's back to cripple status by the season 2 finale.
  • Foreshadowing: Qilby says that he was the king of the Eliatropes, but supplemental materials reveal that the true ruler was Yugo, making his whole story suspect. Also, baby Grougal hates him.
  • The Glasses Come Off
  • Genius Cripple: He's missing an arm, lost it in a battle with Phaeris. Despite this, he's still good enough at manipulating wakfu to pull Yugo and co. out from the Shushu Realm.
  • Giggling Villain
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: After merging with the Eliacube.
  • Hand Blast
  • 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.
  • Limp and Livid
  • Mad Scientist
  • Mark of the Beast
  • 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.
  • One-Winged Angel: After merging with the Eliacube.
  • Omnicidal Maniac
  • Power Up Full Color Change
  • Red Baron: He is often called Qilby the Traitor.
  • Rightful King Returns: He claims to be the former ruler of the Eliatropes, which helps explain why he's so depressed over their passing.
  • The Sociopath
  • The Starscream: A dangerously successful example.
  • Stoic Spectacles
  • Talkative Loon: Good grief, does Qilby love to monologue mid-battle.
  • There Is Another
  • Thinking Up Portals: He's even better at it than Yugo, being able to open multiple pairs of portals at once.
  • Unreliable Expositor
  • Villain Teleportation: With his portals.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • 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.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: He goes completely nuts the moment he and the Eliacube reunite.
  • Would Be Rude to Say "Genocide": "Annihilate is much too harsh. [The world] will just be a bit... eh... ravaged?"

     Jiva 
Jiva

First 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)
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Defeats the brotherhood and Phaeris easily .
  • Hero Killer: Kills Phaeris, albeit as part of a deal with him to spare everyone else.
  • An Ice Person
  • I Have Your Wife: Holds Grougal and Chibi hostage to make certain the brotherhood delievers the six dofus to her.
  • Physical God
  • Slasher Smile: A few times during her attack.
