"Adventure Dennis is a stunning juggernaut of righteous fury and he will persevere!"
Adventure Dennis Saves The Mayor is an obscure webcomic about a man, titular Adventure Dennis, on a mission to save the kidnapped mayor. He finds a magic sword and progresses through ten "levels" in the style of an old school Platform Game
killing anything that opposes him, or even just happens to be standing in his way. The comic was drawn in MS Paint
with much copying and pasting.
It can be found on the Book of PDR
, over here
Adventure Dennis provides examples of:
- All There in the Manual: The last section of the book is done in the style of an old game manual and reveals some facts about Dennis. (Unlike the story itself, which explains just about nothing)

- Big Bad: King Demonevil.
- Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Adventure Dennis kills several types of yeti including a pirate, a superhero, and a businessman.
- Big Boo's Haunt: Level III is a haunted house.

- Stock Monsters: Dennis encounters most of the monsters on the list.
- Super Not Drowning Skills: Just like any other thing that should probably kill him, Dennis just ignores drowning.
