Webcomic / Latchkey Kingdom

Written and drawn by Nick Daniel, set in the world of his previous comic 70-Seas on one of the sailing islands, Latchkey Kingdom starts off as a parody of The Legend of Zelda that quickly turns in unique directions. Once again, the cast is comprised completely of furries.

Can be found here.


This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Acquired Poison Immunity: Rosaline tanks a snake bite for Zander and justifies it with this trope.
  • Badass Grandpa: Willa's grandfather, Sir Dragonfly.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Ash only wears bandages on her feet in her normal outfit (although she was gifted/wearing toe-socks during an Xmas arc). Demi-God Stella goes completely barefoot, even in snow, but doesn't particularly think anything of it.
  • Beleaguered Bureaucrat: The king's assistant, who has to deal with a king who is willing to abdicate his throne to the first man who says he can do a better job.
  • Burn the Witch!: The citizens of Hilla apparently have a tendency to do this.
  • Censor Box: Used in the "tourist" arc for the protagonist.
  • Continuity Cameo: Nikol appears in "Shade" as Debbie's skeptical new companion.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Stella versus Elder Goddess Qthyl.
  • Evil Princess: Princess Rosaline attempted Inheritance Murder, poisoning her parents into a coma, for the crime of trying to conceive a male heir.
  • Handy Feet: Implied; Ash's feet are more like a second pair of hands, bearing finger-like toes, complete with one being opposable like a thumb. That said, she's yet to visibly use them like hands.
  • Has Two Mommies: Two women each claim the other stole their baby, and demand the king resolve the situation. The new king decides to marry them... to each other.
    King Donovan: Baby gets two mommies! Twice as good!
    Woman 1: My husband's not gonna like this.
    Woman 2: I'm afraid mine will.
    The Rant: Gay marriage comes to Hilla, and it's mandatory!
  • Healthcare Motivation: Subverted in the Minion arc, where Willa's kidnapper is quick to add that the "operation" is not of the medical sort.
    Jane: This is just a job to me. I'm only doing it because my mom needs money for her operation. (next panel) Well it's more of a scheme really. She swears she just needs H⃒500 to crack the Shadowwood cluck cluck races wide open.
  • Heroic Mime: Parodied. Willa got jinxed, and had to retrieve a potion from a dungeon before she could speak again. No, it wasn't a magical jinx, it was just two kids screwing around. But even in normal times, she doesn't talk much, see Terse Talker below.
  • Hive Mind: Apparently some flocks of birds can form collective consciousnesses, like the Cluck Clucks, or Svana's mentor Murder.
  • Judgment of Solomon: With an unorthodox solution (two if you count the abdication).
  • Naked on Arrival: The protagonist of the "tourist" arc appears naked, much to her shock and dismay, forcing her to run to the nearest store for clothing.
  • Oh Crap!: Yeah, the Capra Demon is exactly like this.
  • Unreliable Voiceover: In the Tourist arc, Svana explains to Bridget how she "chanced" upon her ██████████, but the images reveal she was actually stalking her and she actively sought the item as soon as she learned it was dropped.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Zander "helping" Willa has only led to disaster so far.
  • Terse Talker: Willa, leading to some characters calling her mute, either seriously or in jest.
  • Totem Pole Trench: Phantom, one of the adventurers in "Team Awesome".
  • You Fight Like a Cow: Rosaline uses and abuses this while fencing, as seen in the "Minion" arc.
