Webcomic: Latchkey Kingdom

Written and drawn by Nick Daniel (author of Seventy Seas), Latchkey Kingdom is a The Legend of Zelda parody that quickly turns in unique directions. Once again, the cast is comprised completely of furries.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Badass Grandpa: Willa's grandfather, Sir Dragonfly.
  • 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.
  • 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.
    Barbarian King: 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!
  • 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.
  • Judgment of Solomon: With an unorthodox solution (two if you count the abdication).
  • Oh, Crap: Yeah, the Capra Demon is exactly like this.
  • 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.
