''[[http://dementiaofmagic.net/ The Dementia of Magic]]'' is a fantasy webcomic about the adventures of [[BrotherSisterTeam two siblings]], Alex (a mage) and Matt (a thief).

!!''The Dementia of Magic'' provides examples of:
* AllThereInTheManual: There is a lot of background information on the website and in the explanatory notes.
* TheArchmage: Salthalus is one of the most powerful mages on the continent.
* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Perhelion (Perfect Equinox) somehow happens only every 4 years (does this mean equinoxes are imperfect the other three years?).
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: Howard]] is revived, with great difficulty.
** [[spoiler:Stephanie's bird carries her to the HealingSpring after her death and revives her by dive-bombing past the guardians by surprise]]. WordOfGod says this won't work a second time.
* BalefulPolymorph: Marzos turns Matt into a chicken briefly.
* BewitchedAmphibians: Stephanie turned Simon into a giant frog.
* BrilliantButLazy: Stephanie is a talented and inventive mage, but doesn't finish her projects or take proper care of her pets. [[spoiler:After she comes BackFromTheDead, she finds a way around this, at least in the illusion field, by stealing an illusion-crafting device]].
* BrotherSisterTeam: Alex and Matt.
* BucketBoobyTrap: Alex doesn't need a door, since she can dump the bucket by telekinesis.
* {{Conscription}}: The King of Landis conscripts all able-bodied men to fight a dragon. His profile explains that he panics and drafts people whenever confronted with a problem he can't solve, but he's otherwise a good king who cares for his people.
* CursedWithAwesome: Simon is turned into a frog, which means he can jump thirty feet and pick things up with his tongue.
* DraftDodging: Whenever Landis announces conscription, much of the population flees to neighboring countries.
* DramaticIrony: Alex hopes seeing the harvest festival in Rosiori will take Matt's mind off Stephanie, but she doesn't know the show will be run by the latter's estranged family, so ''something'' Stephanie-related is bound to happen.
* DoorJam: A rockslide traps Alex and Matt in a cave with a dragon.
* FatalFlaw: Stephanie's biggest flaw is her impatience.
* FindTheCure: When [[spoiler: Alex is poisoned]], Matt must track down a cure.
* ForTheEvulz: Stephanie kills and torments people because she likes having power over them. She committed ''regicide'' for the sheer shock value.
* ForgotToFeedTheMonster: How Matt notices Stephanie is not as competent as she pretends to be.
* FunctionalMagic: Alex is an apprentice mage, so there's lots of this.
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: Alex gets no credit for slaying the dragon that had been ravaging Landis.
-->'''Alex:'''...then I killed the dragon, not that anyone seems to care...
* HealingSpring: There is a whole city built around the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Healing Springs]], which can cure even death.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: Simon lives with the shame of not having been able to save his sister.
* IneptMage: Alex's spells are not very reliable, at least partly due to her inexperience. Neither are Stephanie's, but in her case it's mainly because she's impatient. She's also [[http://dementiaofmagic.net/d/20121102.html much less trained in magic]] than Alex, since she was raised as an acrobat, not a mage.
* InterruptedDeclarationOfLove: Every time Phinn tries to tell Matt how she feels, something interrupts her.
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: For the centaurs that guard a HealingSpring, they don't let anything get by them twice.
* {{Jerkass}}
* LanguageOfMagic: Howard casts spells in a graphical language. It's computer-like, complete with a [[http://dementiaofmagic.net/d/20030813.html deprecated element]].
* LoveableRogue: Matt is a professional thief.
* MadeOfExplodium: Dwarven machinery is unreliable and tends to explode. Its makers think this is part of the fun.
* MadScientist: Cesol and many other dwarven engineers make dangerous machines with little regard for safety.
* MagicMisfire: Miscast spells often produce “nasal flies”. The bigger the spell was meant to be, the more are produced.
* MagicMushroom: Raikkes are striped mushrooms which [[AmplifierArtifact enhance magic]].
* MagicStaff: Marzos has a rather ugly one.
* ManEatingPlant: Alex accidentally creates one.
* MistakenForEvidence: Quertia thinks Alex stole her mushrooms. She only finds out the truth later.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: The mages are [[http://dementiaofmagic.net/d/20120810.html a bit too certain]] [[TemptingFate there's absolutely no way]] Marzos could come back from being shoved into AnotherDimension.
* ObliviousToLove: Phinn has a crush on Matt, but he has no idea.
* OurElvesAreBetter: There are Forest Elves and... Beach Elves? Neither likes the other much.
* ThePrankster: Alex does practical jokes, often by magic.
* PuppetQueen: Queen Janis Breznial, prisoner in her own castle.
* RightBehindMe: Don't call Quertia a “crazy old hag” when you think she's not around.
-->'''Alex:''' There's the hut the crazy old hag lives in...\\
'''Matt:''' Good, and there's the log next to the hut the crazy old hag lives in...\\
'''[[WalkInChimeIn Quertia]]:''' And here's the old hag who lives in the hut at the end of the log in the middle of the swamp.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: After his BalefulPolymorph is reversed, Matt retains the ability to speak to chickens.
* SurferDude: Beach elves.
* TailorMadePrison: Marzos was imprisoned by other mages, but escaped.
* ThePenIsMightier: Matt uses both a feather and sword to [[OnlyMostlyDead kill]] Stephanie.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Matt throws a sword to [[FallingChandelierOfDoom cut down a chandelier]].
* TraumaButton: Mentioning Phinn's ravaged hometown [[https://dementiaofmagic.net/d/20160916.html while running away]] wasn't the best of ideas.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Marzos wants to explore other worlds, and doesn't care about the risk to his own.
