''Draconia Chronicles'' is a webcomic by Donnie Sturges and Danny Valentini (although Donnie seems to have been quietly dropped from the billing around the time the comic became colorized). Found [[http://draconia.katbox.net/ here]]. Currently hosted on ''Webcomic/TheKatbox''.

The story centers on a centuries-long war between two anthropomorphic races. They are the Dragons of the Dragonlands, led by Queen Oscura, and the Tigers of the Tiger Territories, led by Princess Kiriad. A unique element of the story is that only the females of the two races are anthropomorphic. The males look like average tigers and standard fantasy dragons.

The story shows the warriors and leaders from both sides of the war. There is clear dissension with the ranks of both races as individuals and factions fight for power and influence. Recent events hint that there might be other races working against both the Dragons and the Tigers and new alliances will need to be formed if both races are to survive.

----
!!''Draconia Chronicles'' provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Nearly every named adult character, with the exception of Ghislain and Roh- the two named male characters.
* AerithAndBob: We have such names as "Scyde," "Shie," "Eone," and "Xihanil," alongside surprisingly mundane names like "Red," "Mabel," "Raz", "Elektra".
* AllThereInTheManual: The [[http://2wconline.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Pre-Comic_Story 2002-2005 calendars]] have a huge amount of backstory, including [[spoiler: how Kilani came to raise to Chuki/ Lumina for six years-and indeed how her egg ended up in tiger territory in the first place, Sombrana's exile, the start of Kess and Kilani's feud, and how Kess, Riah, and Shie got captured]].
** There is also yearly calendars released afterward, which explain and introduce new characters before they're added to the comic.
* AlternateUniverse: The Christmas and Halloween episodes take place in a parallel reality called "Draconia Lane," which is a SettingUpdate to modernity; and with peace between dragons and tigers achieved.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Dragons have colors appropriate to their castes. Fire dragons are shades of red, Earth dragons yellow, Water dragons blue, Lightning dragons purple, and Light dragons mostly greens or light-blue variations.
* AmazonianBeauty: Mainly the Tiger girls, who are shown to be taller and physically stronger than most Dragons. Among the tigers are "Big Cats" who are noticeably much larger and very muscular compared to other Tigers. Though there are a few examples of this among the Dragons as well.
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Mother to Her Women]]: Casual racism aside, Lady Red is shown to be very caring and considerate to the Royal Guard.
* AmplifierArtifact: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-58/ One dragon has a gauntlet that enhances her magic.]] [[spoiler: She attempts to use it during a thunderstorm, misses, and drops a mountainside on her head]]
* AnAxeToGrind: Next to scythes, battle axes are the most commonly-seen weapon.
* AnimatedActors: Shows up in Filler strips every so often.
* AnyoneCanDie: Its a story about a ''war'', what do you expect? [[spoiler:The volcano eruption]] in chapter 2 alone has brought the body count well into the hundreds, if not the thousands.
** WordOfGod says that none of the characters have PlotArmor.
* AprilFoolsDay: 2013 had Xhianil, Briella, Rula and Niasha auditioning for ''Rascals'', a fellow Katbox comic.
** It also had Queen Oscura showing up in ''TheEyeOfRamalach''.
* AreWeGettingThis: In a Valentines Day extra (filler) page, the AnimatedActors switch gears and do something [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/2444/ "Valentines-ey"]].
* YouFailPhysicsForever: Briella's UV laser spell should have killed Red, not given her a sunburn. UV lasers are *really* powerful.
* AscendedExtra: Scyde (Kiriad's Second-In-Command) and Eone (Current leader of the Earth Dragon brood) started out in the calendars as "The tiger off to the side" and "E-1" (short for Earth One).
* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]: InUniverse, Saph. An earth dragon who absolutely worships Lady Red and is conscripted into her personal squadron.
* BadassPacifist: Kilani. advocates peace between the races, FriendToAllLivingThings, [[http://draconia.katbox.net/?p=639 master infiltrator and rescuer]].
* BathsAreFun: A calendar scene (narrated by Kess) mentions that she, Riah and Shie ended up playing in a hotspring after Sombrana pulled a GetBackHereBoss.
** Similarly, an early scene features Scyde's group bathing in a hot-spring. Justified in that IRL tigers are one of the few cats that can stand getting wet.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: While the dragons are technically nude all the time, they have no visible nipples (justified that they are reptilian) nor genitalia, which by WordOfGod and shown in more erotic works, is covered up by a section of skin that can be pushed aside.
* BattleInTheRain: Averts the "no-one ever slips" part. [[GeoEffects The treacherous footing makes for the occasional turn of the tide]]. It also overlaps with MudWrestling a little. Rain also reduces the lightning dragon's magic attacks to point-blank.
* BawdySong: Strip 359. It's apparently the local version of "Roll Me Over In The Clover".
* BigBadassBattleSequence: Page 18, which shows a pitched battle between tigers and lighting dragons.
* BilingualBonus: The spell Gaia casts when fertilizing her egg is written in real life runic. It's a good-will and protection spell.
* BizarreSexualDimorphism: While the Dragons and Tigers females that are most prominently featured are anthropomorphic, the males of their respective races are actual full feral formed [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-33/ Dragons]] and [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-102/ Tigers]].
* BlankWhiteEyes: Dragons when using powerful magic. Flashbacks also give enemy characters these.
* BlindingBangs: Ekeni
* BloodFromTheMouth: [[spoiler: Zurina's death.]]
* BreakTheCutie: Kilani seems to have become a DeathSeeker due to what Kess said to her.
** [[spoiler: One strip shows her preparing to [[DrivenToSuicide hang herself]]]]
* BurningWithAnger: Ennek [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-334/ when finally pushed too far]]
** Literally with Red, when Kess smacks Kilani with a rock while trying to rescue her. This is apparently the fire dragon version of the "[[LimitBreak Surge]]". Notably, she burns so hot, it's ''blue'' (for context, heat-glow follows a LawOfChromaticSuperiority, with blue being hottest).
* CanonForeigner: The lightswords only show up in the calendars so far.
* CensorBox: In this case, a patch of mushrooms in one panel, a slug in another. Conveniently placed tails and speech bubbles are another favorite. And, of all things a ''[[OddShapedPanel panel gutter!]]''
* CerebusSyndrome: Started has a fairly lighthearted HighFantasy adventure comic, but ever since the end of chapter 1, its become progressively more [[DarkFantasy dark, bleak and tragic.]]
* TheChessmaster: A Fox woman named "Shaleigh" manipulating both sides, on the behalf of a shadowy third side called "the conclave".
* ComfortFood: Riah's favorite food is burnt-outside-raw-inside lamprey. Her sister feeds it to her trying to coax some words out of her post EyeScream, and she later reveals that's why she actually began speaking again.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Averted. During Ch2 the volcano near the Dragons capital city erupts. The Dragons city is threatened by superheated rocks falling on it and a massive river of lava. Meanwhile the wind currents of the world blow most of the ash and toxic fumes into the Tiger Territories. Fire Dragons, despite knowing elemental magic, are shown being effected by the heat, while not as much as the Earth Dragons.
* CorpseLand: The Khalira/Calera, an ancient battleground inside a cave system, is full of skeletons, both dragon and tiger.
* CrapsackWorld: The Borderlands seen outside the Dragon Kingdom and Tiger Territories are, with few exceptions, [[{{Mordor}} blasted, barren, and lifeless]].
* CrapsaccharineWorld: Both the Dragon Kingdom and the Tiger Territories, to an extent. The Kingdom gives off a CrystalSpiresAndTogas vibe, but the Queen is of questionable morals and sanity and banished her entire Royal Guard (the Lightning Dragons) and her top adviser (Sombrana) [[NoodleIncident seemingly]] on a whim. [[UrbanSegregation Each Dragon caste is strictly racially segregated]], with the Light Dragons on top, and the Earth Dragons on the very bottom. And then [[spoiler:a volcano erupts right in the middle of the Kingdom's capitol, killing ''thousands'', and the Queen and her new royal guard are desperately struggling to cover up the worst of the damage]]. As for the Territories, the inexperience and general naivete of Princess Kiraid has lead to infighting amongst several tribes, and [[spoiler:the ash from the aforementioned volcano eruption has destroyed a lot of the Tigers' farmland as well as killing a large percentage of their children and breeding stock.]]
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler: Gaia]] is [[spoiler: decapitated, despite surrendering, and already having been tortured along the way]]
* CycleOfRevenge: One of the things keeping the war going. Kess and Chiara, for example, each have lost their mothers to the war, and engage in raiding. Kess even points out how pretty much every combatant on ''both'' sides has a personal stake in the war at this point.
* DarkFantasy: Of the "Society is in the toilet, none of the races can get along or see their so-called 'allies' are about to stab them in the back, and there's constant, unceasing warfare, atrocity, and bloodshed, with no potential to EarnYourHappyEnding" sort of dark.
* [[DeadGuyOnDisplay Dead Girl On Display]]: Tiger camps have dragon skulls on poles, and their horns as ornamentation. Dragons, in turn, have tiger pelts on their walls, and taxidermy specimens in tubes. The dragon queen's throne also appears to have a number of human-looking skulls on it...
* DeadHandShot: A favorite.
* DeathGlare: Riah fixes Shie with one when she says she has pretty eyes-[[EyeScream Riah having lost one.]]
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: an inverse gender dynamic also inverts MenAreTheExpendableGender, and [[WouldHurtAChild kids are apparently fair game.]] there is also no concept of "civilian" or "enemy noncombatant". POW's are only taken to inflict further indignities on them. Getting away from the Rules of Warfare and into cultural norms, Fire Dragons apparently start smoking in school, and nobody minds this (a teacher says "smoke if you got 'em.)
* DistinguishingMark: Most tigers are orange-and-black, of one of two different shades; the royal family, however, are white tigers.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Kiraid's usually too busy having sex with Shaleigh to do much in the way of princessing.
* TheDragAlong: Eone and Meta after Red conscripts them.
* TheDragon: ([[IncrediblyLamePun Wark wark]]!) Red to Oscura
** Scyde to Kiraid.
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Her]]: [[spoiler:Gaia. Good ''lord'', Gaia.]]
** [[spoiler: Raz's Pack]]
* ElementalAbsorption: Dragons are immune to the elements they represent, but within certain restrictions. Fire dragons are immune to both fire and smoke, for example, but not if the heat comes from, oh, say lava instead of straight-up fire, and chemical fog ([[{{Squick}} sewer gas]] to be exact) irritates their eyes as well as the next girl's; and lightning dragons zap each other as an affectionate gesture.
* ElementalPowers: The main advantage the Dragons have in the war against the Tigers , besides the fact that they can fly, is that they can use elemental magic.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Xhianil gets called "Piggy" due to her pink coloration.
* EmpathyDollShot: When [[spoiler: the death of Raz and Mabel's entire tribe is callously dismissed]], Raz tearfully regards a doll she found.
* TheEmpire: The dragons.
* EnemyCivilWar: Not quite yet, but it's stated that Sombrana will attempt a coup sometime in the future; with Electra's help.
* EnsembleCast: There's no one protagonist like with say, Two Kinds, just some characters you can point to as "on-camera". The calendars started off with Kess and Khilani, but the comics started with Scyde and Electra, and it rotates between Khess' pack, Red's flock, and the Royal Families of either faction, with an occasional LowerDeckEpisode featuring Electra's brood, Xihanil, Tam'syn, and Ennek's sister and nieces (who feature heavily in the {{Christmas Episode}}s.
* EveryoneIsBi: The Ancient Greek version, where members of one's own sex are for sexual comfort, while the opposite sex is for reproduction.
* EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses: Princess Kiraid. It's stated she won't take the title of "Queen" until she feels she's earned it.
* ExtremeDoormat: [[spoiler:Kilani makes no attempt to justify her caring for Lumina, instead allowing Kess to both abuse her and destroy her reputation.]]
* EyeScream: Riah.
* FacepalmOfDoom: Done by Elektra to Gaia after the latter smokes her over the head with a rock in an attempt to escape.
* FamedInStory: Red, enough so as to have fangirls (see "running gag" and "hero worship").
* FantasticCasteSystem: The Dragon Kingdom is separated like this. Light Dragons are the nobility (owing to Oscura being one), Fire Dragons are warriors and the Royal Guard, Water Dragons seem to be seers and mages, and the Earth Dragons are typically artisans and builders who are under intense scrutiny due to Gaia's "crimes", and other unnamed reasons before that.
* FantasticRacism: Inevitable, really. At one point, a Dragon finds it "cute" how Tigers actually have ''names''.
--> "Its almost like they think they're ''people''!"
** And another time, Kess laughs over remembering how Xhianil burst into tears after [[ForcedToWatch seeing her girlfriend Flare get killed]].
** Dragons think tigers all look the same.
* FantasticSlurs: "fleatraps" towards tigers, "scalebacks" towards dragons.
* FictionalSport: "Fireball".
* ForeverWar: The two races have been fighting each other for centuries-long enough to have ''cave paintings of it''-and no longer remember the cause of the war. At this point the main reasons for fighting are vengeance and pride.
* FreudianExcuse: Why is Kess such a racist bitch? [[spoiler:Because dragons [[YouKilledMyFather murdered her mother.]]]]
* FromBadToWorse: Chapter three, so far, has been nothing but this for all involved. [[spoiler:Red, arguably the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]] of the Dragons, is humiliated and loses a great deal of Oscura's respect due to unintentionally allowing several political prisoners to escape and now has to hunt them back down or face severe consequences, Kilani's connection to Lumina is exposed and she's about two steps away from being forced into exile or worse, and the volcano eruption has been shown to have effectively crippled the Dragon Kingdom, a fact that Oscura is desperately trying (and failing) to cover up.]]
* GenderRarityValue: Rare Sex Worshipped variant. Tiger males reside in a peaceful enclave known as "The Sanctuary" where nothing more strenuous than breeding occurs. Dragon males, in turn, are so rare that only the queen can speak to one (among other things), since most of them left.
* GeniusBruiser: According to Shie's bio, she's the tactician of the group, and a fierce fighter.
** Scyde as well. She seems to be the physically strongest of the Tigers seen thus far, and proves it during her fight with Elektra. She also seems to be TheStrategist of the Tigers.
** Big Cats seem to be pack alphas, so it would make sense they're big ''and'' smart.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Ranges from sisterly affection to barely-censored knobbing.
* GoGoEnslavement: As show in the calendar series, March-April 2002, when the Tiger Princess Kiriad is captured and enslaved by the Dragon Queen Oscura, she's shown in chains and a bikini with the queen holding her on a leash.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Oscura isn't exactly ''evil'' (no one here is, [[AmbiguouslyEvil except maybe Shaleigh but that's another story]]), but she's shown to be short-sighted, vindictive and an all around pain to work with, perhaps best shown when [[spoiler:she cares more about, and thus directs more resources towards capturing a ''single'' tiger then she does about ''the volcano that just wiped out half her kingdom''.]] and [[spoiler:she plans to use Princess Lumina, her daughter, as a superweapon when she grows up.]] Also, the Tiger Princess Kiriad, while not very developed yet, is shown to be viewed as incompetent by a few of the tiger higher ups.
* GreyAndGrayMorality: Initially, the Dragons were the ones portrayed villainously, but as the plot goes on both sides are shown to have both their good and bad individuals, and the Tigers themselves start to get some immoral blemishes on their record, such as [[spoiler:Kess' ''horrific'' treatment of Kilani after learning of her connection to Lumina]] and [[spoiler: Princess Kiriad's scout, Aika casually dismissing the deaths of Mabel's ''entire tribe'' because they were "unimportant".]]
* GrievousHarmWithABody: [[spoiler: Gaia's head is thrown at another dragon]].
* GroinAttack: Scyde claws Elektra`s inner thighs during their fight scene.
* HarmonyVersusDiscipline: Tigers are Harmonious, living off the land, in tents, and with a relatively high female-to-male ratio. Dragons are Disciplined, living in a permanent city, [[UrbanSegregation segregated by breed-based castes]], [[PopulationControl their population levels are decided based on how useful their magic is in combat]], they're trained not to let their emotions dictate their actions, and [[spoiler: only one male present.]]
** Furthermore, the two species share a song. The draconic lyrics are a hymn on the level of ''Jesus Loves Me'', while the tigerish lyrics are a BawdySong on the level of ''Roll Me Over in the Clover''.
* HatesBeingTouched: Kess has a phobia about being touched on her shoulders, and violently lashes out when someone-usually the hapless Ennek-does.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Kilani has a major one once she realizes just how badly she's screwed up.]]
* HeroWorshipper: A RunningGag has Saph [[{{Squee}} fangirl out]] when she sees Red.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: [[spoiler:During the fight between Scyde's group and the Lightning Dragons, Circuitae tries to kill Scyde by using her magic gauntlet to cause an avalanche. She ends up crushing ''herself'' instead.]]
* AHouseDivided: Dragons are extremely fractuous, to the point that dr. Lucius (a light dragon) won't treat Fuegana (a fire dragon royal guard recruit). The only thing keeping them all from turning on each other is hating the tigers.
* HollywoodTactics: Dragons apparently like getting stuck in too much to take advantage of a little thing called "air superiority". All they need to do is stay out of reach and chuck fireballs, thunderbolts, or laser beams down on the tiger's heads and the war'd be over in a week.
* HornedHumanoid: Dragons
* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: The Khalira (or Calera), a cave system that is feared by ''both'' sides due to a cataclysmic battle having taken place there. [[spoiler:Naturally, the caves that Kilani leads the freed prisoners to ''is'' the Khalira.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[SinisterScythe Scythes]] are a favorite among tigers. In an [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-51/ early strip]] this backfires, one character gets eviscerated with her own ''jatalang''[[note]] Imagine two scythes stuck together in an "S" pattern[[/note]].
* ImprovisedWeapon: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-78/ a lute is used as a club]] at one point.
* InfantImmortality: Completely averted. [[spoiler:When poisonous ash from the volcano eruption spreads into the Tiger Territories, the majority of the deaths are children.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Kess has been becoming more and more like that, best exemplified when she bitches at Kilani for [[spoiler:refusing to ''murder a child in cold blood''.]]
* JerkassRealization: [[spoiler:Kess ''finally'' seems to realize what a bitch she's been to Kilani after the latter's HeroicBSOD.]]
* LadyLand: Justified, considering the dragon males are altogether absent (having left in protest of the war [[spoiler: except for the queen's mate]]) and tiger males are rarely seen.
* LaserBlade: The Zhirite weapons are said to be able to project lightblades.
** One spell Sombrana knows involves making a HardLight dagger.
* LifeOrLimbDecision: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/2012-draconia-chronicles-annual-jazzfox-chaoscroc/ A guest story arc]] has a dragon rip her own wings off to escape a tiger encampment. She's understandably upset with Sombrana-whom she loved-for leaving her to die. [[note]] Nothing of the sort has happened in canon.
* LimitBreak: Dragons can "Surge" when their lives are in danger (and it even trumps zhirite contamination), however, it takes a lot out of them.
* LeeroyJenkins: Saph, one of the Earth Dragons Red brings along when she intends to raid the Khalira. She's disappointed when Meta tells them the tigers have since left.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters
* {{Loveable Sex Maniac}}s: The twins Rula and Naisha.
* LovableCoward: Briella. Although rather justified, considering she's outnumbered 7-1, and only barely escapes with her life.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Kilani in the September-October 2002 calendar uses hers to deflect Red's [[BreathWeapon fire breath]].
* MacGuffin: Two: For the tigers, a powerful [[AntiMagic Zhirite]] artifact called the "Zhirite Claw", for the dragons, a device cryptically referred to as the "Obsidian Egg."
* {{Magick}}
* MagicSkirt: Averted, there's rather frequent upskirts, and Aika looses her shirt during the first fight scene. In fact, her outfit was created to lampshade how AwesomeButImpractical such clothes are.
* MamaBear: Deconstructed. Oscura is ''hellbent'' on personally punishing Kilani for "kidnapping" her daughter... even to the point that she's willing to waste war resources just to track her down.
* MenAreTheExpendableGender: Completely {{Inverted}}. There's been 5 female deaths on-screen, all of which are fairly brutal (in order of appearance: evisceration, BuriedAlive, electrocution, decapitation, and being smashed between two rock slabs), approximately 200-1000 off-screen mixed-sex deaths (killed by volcanic eruption), and two on-screen male deaths (asphyxiation).
* MerchandiseDriven: {{Downplayed}}, but if you want the whole story, you've got to read the calendars. However, the comic can still be enjoyed very well without them.
* MismatchedEyes: Briella's left eye is blue, while her right eye is orange.
* MoodWhiplash: Quite common.
* MonsterIsAMommy: For a given value of "monster", anyways. It fuels a continent-wide CycleOfRevenge. Dragon kills tiger warrior who had kids who murder dragon who had kids and on and on [[ForeverWar since time immemorial]].
* MoralityPet: Lumina is essentially this to Oscura.
* MotorMouth: Kess. Dear god, Kess.
* MurderousThighs: Inverted. Rhia's signature move is to grab someone around the head with her thighs and then do a backflip. She hasn't killed anyone with it yet (it would be really easy to accidentally break someone's neck doing that), although she uses it to get Kess out of a sticky situation.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Kilani, after being informed Kess thinks of her as a traitor.
** Chiara has a flashback to her torturing Riah by ruining her left eye. She nearly has a heart attack. Especially significant since they're on opposite sides of a war fuelled by abject racial hatred.
* MyLittlePhony: ''My Little Dracony: Togetherness is Magical'', a non-canon ([[BroadStrokes or hinted at in-canon]]) series, which is immensely popular despite being intended for dragonlings; so much so that [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-258/ it's implied that even P.O.W.'s are allowed to watch it]] (although it's stated to be [[PropagandaMachine anti-tiger propaganda]] rather than a [[MerchandiseDriven 30-minute toy commercial]])-[[UpToEleven and they like it too(!)]].
* NeverMyFault: Oh no, Rula, sexually harrassing Ennek for two days straight had nothing to do with her trying to strangle you, ''clearly'' there's something wrong with ''her''.
* NippleAndDimed: Although a teensy portion of areola can be seen on occasion, and uncensored versions of strips are available on [=FurAffinity=] and Website/DeviantArt.
* NonMammalMammaries: The Dragons "breasts". WordOfGod labels them as "flight muscles". Though several art pieces have said otherwise.
* NoodleIncident: Its still unclear what exactly the Lightning Dragons and Sombrana did to make Oscura boot them out of the Kingdom's capitol, though both Briella and Red have referred to it as "The Incident".
* NotSoDifferent: Kess and Chiara. Both lost a loved one (Their mother, on both accounts) in the war, and as a result their grief and rage turned both of them into ruthless raiders.
** Ennek knows the tune to the hymn Saph sings.
** Kilani's realization of this trope is what turns her pacifist.
* ObligatoryWarCrimeScene: [[spoiler: Gaia's death (summary execution of a POW)]].
** {{Invoked}}: Kess is ''pissed'' that her sister didn't [[spoiler: murder Princess Lumina as a hatchling.]]
* OddShapedPanel: Taken UpToEleven. It may be easier to list the pages that ''don't'' have this...
* OffScreenTeleportation: Shaleigh takes this to an art form, able to go from Oscura's castle to Kiraid's campsite in the same hour-it's a several days journey on foot from either capital to the valley that forms the border.
** One strip shows her disappearing into a shadow on the wall.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Red and Eone on the Dragon side, Kilani on the Tiger side.
* OffWithHisHead: How [[spoiler: Gaia]] is killed. Complete with a SplashOfColor.
* OhMyGods
* OneGenderRace: Only one male Dragon has been seen so far.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent
* OurNudityIsDifferent: Dragons don't have overt sexual characteristics, and the closest they get to clothing is tattoos or a beadwork collar/choker. Justified, since as cold-blooded creatures they'd want to maximize their surface area in contact with sunlight.
* PantyFighter: Tigers wear {{Sarashi}} or bikini tops and loincloths when they wear [[FullFrontalAssault anything at all]], and dragons are outright naturists. According to WordOfGod, the tiger's "clothing" is actually for utility, rather than modesty; rather like wearing combat webbing and nothing else.
* PardonMyKlingon: "spawn of a dritch" is a popular one...
** "We're scaled" is used in the same context as "we're screwed".
** Rather jarringly; [[spoiler: "whore"]] goes unchanged.
* PeopleJars: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-96/ The dragon city control room has a tiger male and female in a pair of jars]].
* PopulationControl: Queen Oscura controls access to the "elixir" used to fertilize eggs. Attempting to steal some and have a child without permission is punishable by exile, and [[spoiler:subsequent death]]
* PosthumousCharacter: Flare.
* PowerNullifier: Zhirite is a metal that the Tigers mine and that all their weapons are forged from. It negates the Dragons magical abilities, and physically weakens them, though it is only effective at close range.
* PerfectPacifistPeople: Earth Dragons are an entirely pacifist race, minus a few dissenters.
* PyrrhicVictory: It's not quite clear who won the Battle of the Khalira; as there seems to be roughly an equal number of dragon and tiger skeletons. Both sides are scared shitless of the place, going so far to say it's cursed.
* TheQuietOne: Shie and her sister Riah. Shie can be heard neurotically mumbling "stop it" whenever Kess yells at Kilani, but is otherwise pretty quiet. Riah has said all of one word throughout the entire Khalira story arc, although she recently began talking again.
* RaisedByOrcs: [[spoiler: Princess Lumina]] was raised by Kilani for four years. In fact, her Tiger name, "Chuki", means "Gift from my enemy." Fits the "raised by a rival species whose [[MyInstinctsAreShowing maternal instincts were showing]]" part; although Kilani had her best interests in mind.
* RedemptionQuest: Chapter 1 has Oscura instructing Elektra to both escort Gaia to her exile and recover an artifact, promising to lift the exile on the Lightning Dragons (of which Elektra is the leader of) if she succeeds. [[spoiler:A run in and subsequent fight with Scyde and her team causes Elektra to fail ''both'' objectives.]]
* TheResenter: Briella ''really'' dislikes how Sombrana was exiled and that the (in her mind) elegant and intelligent Light Dragons have been replaced by the (again, in her mind) brutish Fire Dragons as the Queen's main advisors.
** On the Tiger side, quite a few people, Mabel in particular, don't consider Kiriad a "true" leader due to her inexperience and indecisiveness, and instead look to Scyde (the closest woman the Tigers have to a military leader) for leadership.
* RunningGag:
** Rula, Naisha, and Kenzi teasing Ennek for being touchy about sex (then we get her backstory and it [[HarsherInHindsight stops being funny]]).
** Saph [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee squeeing]] over Lady Red.
* SanitySlippage: Queen Oscura after her daughter's egg went missing.
** [[spoiler:Briella, following her ordeal in the Khalira]].
* SchizoTech: Dragons apparently have TV (Non-Canon) -- complete with [[{{Expy}} expies]] of ''HelloKitty'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', whilst tigers are still at the "[[CaveMen Metal is feakin' sweet!]]" stage.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Mabel makes an art form out of this.
* ShoutOut: to ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'', and others, throughout.
-->Kess: This is some rescue
-->Kilani: Maybe you'd like to get back in your cell?
** Rula and Naisha reminisce over the MLP:FIM episode ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]'', specifically the "You're... going... to '''LOVE ME!!!!!'''" scene.
** Briella has [[Literature/AlexanderAndTheTerribleHorribleNoGoodVeryBadDay a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad... nightmare]] [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-278/ here]].
** Xihanil [[Film/TheAvengers2012 doesn't know what Shwarma is, but the Royal Guard wants to try it]].
** Rula's had it with "[[Film/SnakesOnAPlane these tiger-fuckin' dragons in this tiger-fuckin' cave]]."
** Riah has no trouble helping Shie up, because [[Film/TheFullMonty "She's not heavy, she's my sister."]]
* SinisterScythe: As stated before, a favorite among tigers.
* SpeechImpediment: Kenzi has a lisp, due to breaking a tooth.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Gaia again]].
* TigerVersusDragon
* TragicKeepsake: Raz' doll.
* TheUnintelligible: Tiger males communicate in grunts and snarls. The females can understand them, the readers can't.
* WebcomicTime: IRL timespan is twelve years. In-universe timespan? ''About a week as of page 400''
* WikiRule: [[http://2wconline.wikia.com/wiki/The_Draconia_Chronicles_Wiki here]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: An example in regards to the aforementioned MLP expy. Upon watching an episode in which a tigress is killed, Red states "I'm all for shameless propaganda against tigers but isn't this a little much for a kids show?"
* WingedHumanoid: The Dragon Females
* WomanScorned: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-313/ The reason for Ennek's sexual hang-ups.]]
* WorthyOpponent: According to [[WordOfGod RazorFox]], Scyde and Elektra consider each other this.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-276/ Shie]], [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-286/ Ennek]] and [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-320/ Riah]].
* YouFailBiologyForever: Dragons are reptilian, [[NonMammalianHair but they have hair]], they sweat, and [[NonMammalianMammaries they have boobs]] (but that's {{handwaved}} as hypertrophied pectoral muscles-which are still not strong enough to allow a humanoid to fly, but that's [[YouFailPhysicsForever another trope]]). Also considering typical flight muscles aren't breast-shaped, nor pliable as mammalian breasts are.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Kiriad's is vibrantly purple.
** Inyx' is fluorescent green.
* YourFavorite: [[http://draconia.katbox.net/comic/comic-262/ Shie brings Riah a lamprey, cooked burnt-outside-raw-inside in an attempt to coax some words out of her.]]
* ZergRush: Tigers outnumber dragons 2-1, at least. Especially after Chapter 2.
