Wakfu: Tropes P-R
Tropes A-C | Tropes D-F | Tropes G-I | Tropes J-L | Tropes M-O | Tropes P-R | Tropes S-U | Tropes V-Z

Wakfu provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Papa Wolf:
    • Alibert manages to break Nox's time-stop and even strikes the Xelor when he's threatening Yugo in episode 2 — though Alibert pays dearly for this.
    • Ruel becomes one when Yugo is knocked out and his treasure eaten by McDeek in episode 9.
    • Nox counts as well, the entire first season. He'll do anything to retroactively save his kids. Anything.
    • In the season 2 finale, Balthazar the extremely ancient dragon is ready to give his life for the Eliatrope children, despite being quite clearly too old to face off against Qilby.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: The "ugly princess" disguises in episode 4. Good enough to fool the cursed princesses... and Sadlygrove, of course.
  • Parent Service: In season 2 episode 8, Sadlygrove not only blurts out that he'd already seen Evangelyne naked, but helpfully specifies that it wasn't in a dream, thus excluding the mirage from episode 22. Eva's flushed reaction only makes it worse. By this point everything related to the relationship between Grovy and Eva has officially migrated from Getting Crap Past the Radar into Parent Service, as even kids need to be unusually dense to not realize that they are lovers.
  • Le Parkour: Evangelyne and Remington perform a quite impressive chase all over the chaotic, unstable, ever-shifting "cityscape" of Rubilaxia.
  • Parrot Pet Position: Grany spends a lot of time on Remington's shoulders.
  • Pastel-Chalked Freeze Frame: Used at the end of every Gobbowl-themed episode. As mentionned in Shout-Out and Homage, Word of God is that those are references to Space Adventure Cobra.
  • Past Life Memories: Qilby. He remembers absolutely everything of the several thousand years of his former lifes and will continue to do so in each next reincarnation.
  • Patchwork Map: The world. (No, we're not talking about Grufon getting stitched back together...)
  • Peek-a-Bangs:
    • "Amalius"
    • Shanon Stone
    • Cleophelia
  • People Jars: Qilby's laboratory inside the Zinit is full of preserving jars containing the last specimens of all the species Qilby brought to extinction in his travels.
  • Perfectly Cromulent Word: Jactance and his brother Tendinite are doing this all the time when commenting a Gobbowl match. Notably with an overuse of Portmanteau.
  • Perfect Poison: The bite from the devil roses in episode 7.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The Mmmmmmmmmporpg
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Nox healing Alibert of his premature aging in episode 13 of season 1.
    • Also the Brakmarian delegate in the Council of Twelve meeting in season 2. Brakmar may be a Wretched Hive, but they believe that everything has to be paid for; the delegate tips the Sadida servant, and she's visibly joyed over it.
  • Phlegmings:
    • The Dragon-Pig;
    • Anathar-possessed Adama´.
  • Phrase Catcher:
    • Sadlygrove the Iop brain.
    • Ruel the Skinflint.
  • Pig Man: The Dragon-Pig
  • The Pig Pen: Pandawas in general, as demonstrated by Pandiego de la Vega.
  • Pillar of Light: Let's just say Ankama loves this trope.
    • Willow in episode 14, after getting Moon's hammer.
    • Another one in episode 17, when Grougaloragran is defeated by Nox and he explodes, his wakfu soaring in the sky. This pillar could be seen all over the world.
    • Again in episode 22, when a defeated Rubilax reintegrates his sword prison.
    • And again in episode 25, when the huge teleportation portal is activated. And when Amalia is possessed by the Tree of Life. And when Razortime's Energy Ball hits Sadlygrove.
    • Still another one in season 2 episode 6, when Yugo and Adama´ activate the Eliacube.
    • Rushu fusioning with his army of Shushus is the excuse for yet another one in the season 2 finale.
  • Pilot: Episode 5 was the original series' pilot, hence the overall lack of quality.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: This world has a species of birds with quite clearly blue males and pink females. (And green males. And red males. And purple males. But only pink females.)
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: Dathura, which was the incitement for Ogrest to collect the Dofuses.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse:
    • Master Joris;
    • Yugo to some degree.
  • Pirate Girl: Elaine
  • Planet of Hats: Taken to its literal extreme with the Eliatropes.
  • Pointy Ears: More common than not in the Wakfu universe. Also comes in different versions.
    • CrÔs and Sacriers have rather long pointy elf ears. Also Grougaloragran's in humanoid form.
    • Osamodas, Eliatropes, Iops, Roublards and Eniripsas have shorter pointy ears.
    • Enutrofs, Fecas and Srams, on the other hand, have normal round ears.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: The BrÔkmarians, besides being your typical Wretched Hive denizens, are adamant about not letting women play Gobbowl - or even watch the matches.
  • Porky Pig Pronunciation: Sadlygrove sometimes, when he tries using complex words.
  • Portal Cut: The large horizontal portal build by Nox's minions cut down everything it intersect, and then destroy all that fall into it — mostly the upper parts of trees — to make place for the giant clockwork mecha.
  • Portal Network: A series of portals, called the Zaaps, links different locations in the world. Since the world of Wakfu is basically a huge archipelago, it makes sense.
  • Possession Implies Mastery: While Nox managed to work out some of the Eliacube's functions (over a few hundred years) and use them to an astonishing extent, only an Eliatrope could truly master it.
  • Post-Climax Confrontation: Remington and Evangelyne have one in the finale.
  • Power Copying: Shushu General Anathar can copy any power if he has contact with its user.
  • Power Floats: Nox, and Adama´ in his humanoid form. Apparently devoid of any Midair Bobbing for both.
  • Power Glows:
    • Amalia when using her Green Thumb powers.
    • Yugo's hands also glow each time he creates a portal.
    • All the wakfu Nox is gathering has a perpetual blue glow, as seen with the Noxines and Nox's own glowing eyes and spots on his armor.
    • The Eliacube, of course, is the most glowy thing around.
  • The Power of Friendship: Yugo in episode 26 breaking Nox's most powerful timestop.
    Yugo: My friends... you can... always... count... on... ME!
  • Powers in the First Episode: Yugo discovers his Eliatrope abilities to open portals, and a few minutes later use them to help defeating a Rubilax-possessed Sadlygrove. This starts the main plot, as 10 years before Grougaloragran "programmed" one of Az's feathers to deliver a message to Yugo when this would happen.
  • Power Tattoo: Sacriers gets their powers from their tattoos. This is a Lighter and Softer change from the time of Dofus, where Sacriers instead used Bloody Murder.
  • Power Walk: Ruel's team does one in episode 11 of season 1, at the start of the second quarter-time of the Gobbowl match.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang:
    • Ruel's shovel;
    • Remington's dagger Shushu;
    • The Masked Gobbowler has a very complex and precise control of gobbowls.
    • Sadlygrove sometimes throw Rubilax this way in season 2.
  • Precursors: The civilization of the Eliatropes, who lived thousands of years before the settings of Wakfu and Dofus, before they vanished one day without any trace.
  • Prehensile Hair: Princess Ydalipe
  • Pregnant Badass: Heavily implied that Eva is one in the last episode of Season 2. Pretty much confirmed in the manga.
  • Pressure Plate:
  • Previously On: Used in some of the later episodes. Justified through a mid-season break and a general habit of changing airing dates.
  • Produce Pelting: The Gobbowl spectators aren't shy with this. With tomatoes, old shoes, calliflowers, rubber chickens, carrots, etc.
  • Product Placement: In episode 24 of season 1, two guards are playing the Trading Card Game of the series. No actual cards of the game were shown, though, so it's not that blatant.
  • Psychic Link: Between a dragon and his/her Eliatrope sibling.
  • Pun:
    • In season 1 episode 8, you can bet that about every possible wordplay or expression related to bread or wheat or flour has been used.
    • Same thing in season 2 episode 5, with all wordplay or expression imaginable about pigs and delicatessen.
  • Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...
    • In season 1 episode 22, at the start of the fight against Rubilax, it seems at first that Sadlygrove has the upper hand, raining blows on the Shushu. But Rubilax just laughs it off, complains that it tickles... before starting to grow and revealing that the harder he's hit, the bigger he gets.
    • Also happens shortly in season 2 episode 5 at the start of the fight against the Dragon-Pig.
  • Pure Energy: Razortime fires "Pure Stasis" — concentrated negative wakfu. According to Adama´, nothing is more dangerous.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: Nox's puppets (Marama, Frisco, Tartufo, and later Deserboss) are this to some extent.
  • Quivering Eyes
  • Quizzical Tilt
  • Radio Voice: Prince Alane's conversation with Phaeris in episode 23 of season 2.
  • Rapid Aging:
    • Alibert in episode 2, although Nox reverses the spell in episode 13 of season 1.
    • Nox suffers this when the Eliacube is no longer sustaining him. 200 years catch up to him and he is nothing more than dust by the graves of his family.
  • Ray Gun: Remington's pistol Shushus.
  • Reaction Shot: The pirates' disgusted and disbelieving looks on Cleophelia swallowing several platters full of... something in episode 19 of season 2.
  • Really 700 Years Old:
    • Nox who claims that he's been holding the cube for 200 years, which makes him at least this old. However, it's hard to tell if he looks old or not, since he's covered with mummy-like bandages.
    • Qilby and most of the dragons.
    • Moon, a cute little monkey who is several centuries old because of his magic hammer. He might be older than that, given that he's a boss in Dofus.
    • Goultard, too, was originally from Dofus.
  • Real Men Eat Meat: Yugo, Ruel and Sadlygrove tend to think that. They have a hard time with the vegetarian diet of the Sadidas. Especially noticeable in season 2 episode 5.
  • Rebel Relaxation: Evangelyne in the Justice Knight's cell.
  • Red Alert: During the Sufokian ships emergency submersion in episode 25 of season 2.
  • Red Baron:
    • Spoofed with "The Black Raven" (see below).
    • The Masked Gobbowler, a.k.a. Maude.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning:
    • Amalia's doll gets red eyes when it goes crazy in episode 7 of season 1.
    • The puppets in season 1 episode 17 have scary red eyes.
    • Grany in episode 3 of season 2 when he's possessed by a Shushu.
    • The Mmmmmmmmmporpg in episode 12 of season 2 when entering his Unstoppable Rage.
  • Red Light District: Besides the fact that most of BrÔkmar is lit in red light anyway, one is seen in episode 10 of season 2.
  • Reincarnation: The events in Islands of Wakfu imply that Yugo is the reincarnation of the former King of Eliatropes who died 10,000 years ago.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Evangelyne and Sadlygrove in season 2.
  • Repetitive Name: In the first WAKFU Heroes graphic novel, Korvus Korbiau. Corvus is the genus to which ravens belong, and Korbiau is one vowel away from corbeau, which is the French word for raven. As you've probably guessed, he's the original Black Raven.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated:
    • Master Goultard in season 1.
    • Ruel's grandmother in season 2.
  • Retcon: Episodes 4, 5 and 7 were produced first, with a bit of Executive Meddling. As such, they are rather outside the overall plot of season 1, containing very little mentions of Nox or Oma Island. The only reference to an overarching menace is Eva talking about "Ogrest's Chaos" in episode 5, which was then retconned to have happened 200 years before.
  • Retired Badass:
    • Alibert
    • Kabrok to some extent.
  • The Reveal: Episode 26 of season 2 finally reveals that under an Eliatrope's hat is a pair of dragon-like wings made of wakfu protruding from his/her head, which also seems to give them the ability to fly.
  • Reverse Arm-Fold: Nox does this for a big part of the battle in episode 17, not even caring about Grougaloragran, who he lets his puppets take care of.
  • Revive Kills Zombie:
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Adama´ delivers a hurricane of rhymes in his introduction to Yugo, and given that French has fewer suffixes than English, the viewer gets the sinking feeling that he could keep it up forever. And then Yugo starts doing it. Luckily, they both drop it after about ten minutes.
  • Ribcage Ridge: Yugo stumbles onto the skeleton of a dragon in the desert during episode 21 of season 1.
  • Riding into the Sunset: Well, flying into the sunset for Phaeris and the heroes at the end of season 2. And for Remington and Grany too, although it's doubtful their leaking sub will get them very far.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: Ig˘le to Nox.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Grany Smisse to Remington.
  • Ring of Power: The one imprisoning Shadofang.
  • Rip Tailoring: In season 1 episode 22, Sadlygrove rips off his tabard and leaves behind his shoes, as they sport the symbol of the Shushu Guardians Order, which he no longer deems himself worthy of. At the end of the episode, he gets them back, turning the tunic into a Badass Cape.
  • Rollercoaster Mine: The BrÔkmarian transport system.
  • Rolling Pin of Doom: Chouquette's Weapon of Choice.
  • Roof Hopping: "Rubilaxia".
  • Rooftop Confrontation: Evangelyne and Remington, in "Rubilaxia".
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something:
    • Prince Armand, princess Amalia, and their father the Sadida king all fit this trope. These three are also probably the most powerful Sadidas in the series, which may have to do with their special link to the Tree of Life.
    • Spoiler to the max: Yugo.
    • Prince Adale too.
