Webcomic: Legend Of Maxx
The Legend of Maxx is a comedic webcomic based on the video game Terraria. It follows the adventures of the highly persistent Idiot Hero Maxx, the under-qualified "chosen one" of half a dozen different prophecies, and his trusty guide Cyril as they meet a cast of colorful characters, including a Jerkass Dryad named June, an ale-making fairy named Aley, and the long-suffering Arms Dealer Tyrone.

The comic can be found here.

Tropes found in this work include:

  • Actually Pretty Funny: Maxx crafted a robe for Cyril, which he dub "pyjamas". Even June smirked at that.
  • Art Evolution: At the beginning of the comic, the author was simply editing screenshots, to the point where he actually had to goat the Guide into where he wanted him to be in order to make a specific slide. However, if you compare that with pages like this one, he's definitely gotten way better.
  • Adorkable: Cyril and Skelerina.
  • Ascended Fanon: Hammush is an official weapon since Terraria 1.2.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Maxx and June here.
  • Big Bad: Supposedly the Naiad king, Xyvareth. It's not certain yet though.
  • Butt Monkey: Tyrone the Arms Dealer, nearly every strip he appears in, he dies.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Cyril.
    Jesse: "Can you express your true thoughts about Hannah to us without blushing?"
    Cyril: *blushing* "No."
  • Chekhov's Gun: It's becoming increasingly apparent that the Demon Altar Maxx and Cyril found in their earliest adventures will become important once Maxx has all of the required swords to make the Sword of Plot Advancement.
  • Deadpan Snarker: June, by nature. Cyril has his moments, too.
  • Genre Savvy: Maxx seems to be becoming this.
  • Hospital Hottie: Apparently Hannah, considering Cyril's mind recited an entire speech about how she was out of his league the moment he saw her.
  • Idiot Ball: Maxx.
  • Incoming Ham: Maxx's preferred form of entering the fray.
  • Noodle Incident: Strip 101 Gives us two, Maxx and Cyril apparently fell into a cave of slimes trying to mate with them, and then a skeletal enchanter swapped their livers
  • Prophecies Are Always Right: Zig-zagged, and HOW!
  • Read the Freaking Manual: I don't know which is funnier, the fact that the heart crystal had instructions written on its back that said that consumption may lead to attraction of demonic entities, or the fact that demonic entities were actually attracted to Maxx, who consumed the heart crystal, on two separate occasions.
  • Running Gag: Several.
    • The Arms Dealer's constant dying in his attempts to introduce himself.
    • Maxx attaching an "ey" to the end of a given character's purpose was this for a while(e.g. Guidey, Aley)
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Played straight with Cyril to the point of becoming a borderline Running Gag.
  • Tempting Fate: "Do you see any demons around?" Cue Eye of Cthulhu.
  • Unsound Effect: Maxx crashes the wedding of Cyril and Skelerina and uses the Blade of Grass to slice Skelerina's head off, accompanied by a loud sound effect of "George R. R. Martin".
  • Wave Motion Gun: Aley, a fairy that fits through the spout on a beer keg, is capable of doing this to everything he comes across one by one.
  • Webcomic Of The Game: Of Terraria.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Aley's response after Maxx's shoving Aley into a hornet hive with the purpose of blowing the hive up.
  • Winged Humanoid: The Angels are an entire race of these, complete with masks to hide their real faces from human perception.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: The Skeletal Viking Leader, first seen in this page, And later this one, He (and his crewmates) appear to be cursed undead, allowing them to put themselves back together after death.
  • City Guards: The two guards of the Dryad home, Maple and Poa, are the only two guards seen. They have no other job than this.
  • Intermission: Because the artist of the webcomic (Jesse) wanted to play the new version of Terraria before continuing the comic, he decided to have an interview of each member of the main cast from Comic 307 to Comic 319.
  • Harmless Villain: Or in this case, villains- the Goblin "Army" (may just be the leading squad) of 5 members, who have trouble even remembering each other's names- plan to attack Maxx and Co until [ various obstacles come in their way], or they end up bickering in their many arguments. Along with them is the Goblin Tinkerer, who happens to be a prisoner in their group after one of his inventions accidentally erased Grak from all past, present, and future timelines.
