Trivia / Wakfu

  • Channel Hop: From France 3 to France 4 due to the darker tone later in the series.
  • Image Source:
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The show's only physical releases are in France and Australia, unless you were one of the lucky people to Kickstart $45+ to the English Dub; in that case, you got a region free Blu-Ray with all the episodes (in both French and English, spanning 7 discs) before season 3 happened. Only a little over 3500 copies were made.
  • Missing Episode: The artbook "Dofus - Les mains d'Eniripsa" presents the plot of an unseen episode, going as far as providing a full summary, character design, and even background design. The episode was about Yugo and friends trying to save a village from complete dryness. For some reason, the episode was scrapped and never produced. The only remaining bit is the title character, a charming Eniripsa called Mey d'Elongrot, who was present in the crowd as a cameo in episode 10.
  • Production Posse: Ankama's French-language dub of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann shares most of Wakfu's voice cast. Yoko and Evangelyne share Geneviève Doang, and Cédric Dumond (the obnoxious announcer during the "Gobbowl Hell" arc) is also Kamina. Other notable ones are Nia/Amalia, Kittan/Nox, Viral/Xav, and Tymilph/Rubilax.
  • Recursive Adaptation: The Dofus MMORPG was the basis for the Wakfu MMORPG on which the Wakfu series is based on, and in the near future we will get a Dofus series which is technically based on the Wakfu series.
  • Screwed by the Network: The series has been aired somewhat erratically on the French television network, France 3, including more rediffusion than usual, changing time slots, and gaps of several months between new episodes (the last one being a two-and-a-half-month pause before the final three episodes). Viewers were not happy.
    • Culminated with France 3 cutting the ending credits of the last episode, which actually depict what happened to Nox after his defeat.
      • Also, Ankama was ready to make a 3rd season, but France 3 declined because they where wanting a more children oriented show. Because of that, it's only in 2015 that season have been anounced for Netflix, with a channel hop to France 4.
    • To be fair, most schedule gaps (but not the last one) were due to Ankama failing to meet production deadlines.
  • Shrug of God: What's under Yugo's hat? Ankama has (had) no bloody clue.
  • Word of God: Yes, in season 2 Sadlygrove and Evangelyne are a couple and have a physical relationship. No, no need to fanwank about how and when Grovy had seen Eva naked, as mentioned in season 2 episode 8; it just happened off-screen. Nothing else to see, move along.
