A ragtag bunch of misfits if there ever was one.

"I decided then, I was going to take charge of my own destiny..."
— Sesame, upon becoming a warrior

Uber Quest is a web-comic that takes place in a mystical fantasy realm known as Evyr. Inhabited by anthropomorphic creatures called ‘Fera’ with rather extraordinary abilities and fantastical creatures. The story follows a rag-tag group of protagnists as they venture for glory,treasure and the truth behind a great mystery that has the world of Evyr fate in it’s hands.

Sesame is a small but feisty warrior – one of the last of her clan, she is off on a quest to find out the truth as to what happened to her people. Along the way she finds herself meeting up with a variety of misfits – including Kibbles a sweetheart-ed but naive mage-in-training and Claire an eccentric fox girl from the future who fell from the sky one day.

One of the latest comics to join The Katbox, Uber Quest is a furry fantasy comic that seems to run on MMORPG rules, without actually being a video game. It can be found here.


  • Action Girl: Sesame, she is a Warrior class of course.
  • A-Cup Angst: Sesame is teased by Claire for her lack of boobs.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Kylar's treat him like a kid regardless of other company, at least where his health is concerned.
  • Ambiguous Gender: The way Sesame is drawn she doesn't look very masculine, maybe a little flat compared to Kibbles, but the barkeep in the first comic mistakes her for a guy nonetheless. She is NOT amused.
  • Badass Grandpa: Winsley in this strip.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Mason has had enough of your crap.
  • Big Freaking Sword : Sesame's Weapon of Choice.
  • The Cynic: Farron the merchant falls into this category, he thinks Sesame is foolish for helping him.
  • Ditzy Genius: Claire mostly. Though she is brilliant enough to invent a teleporting Time Machine, she acts like an idiot most other times.
  • Eternal Sexual Freedom: Averted, the kingdom of Alder is conservative enough that Kylar has to keep his homosexual relationship secret, and his parents set up an arranged marriage for him. While Claire, being from the year 3031, is rather flirty, if not outright lewd, towards both genders.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Effectively Farron has monocular vision.
  • Fangirl: Kibbles thinks Sesame is SO cool! So much so she'd follow her into battle unwittingly try to befriend her despite being shrugged off at first.
  • Fanservice: For Christmas, 2014, we get a page with both male and female characters wearing skimpy holiday-themed outfits. They display different levels of enthusiasm for this.

  • Flaming Sword: Mason enchances Sesame's BFS with a Arcane Fire Enhancement
  • Gag Boobs: Kibbles.
  • Gentle Giant: Mason. Biggest character in the cast thus far, and possibly has the biggest heart to compliment it.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Sesame. When Claire appeared, enabling Dante to escape in the confusion, her reaction was to punt her transport pod and Proto halfway across the kingdom. Though once the situation was explained she was deeply ashamed of herself.
  • The Idealist: Kibbles thinks everyone is going to be great friends, obviously ignoring Claire's and Sesame's bickering.
  • Inept Mage: Kibbles is first introduced accidentally incinerating a guy she was trying to demonstrate a healing spell for. (That said, she is not entirely convinced it was her fault, as she does not normally mess up that spell. And it's turned out she was framed.)
  • Intrepid Merchant: Farron is a always on the move looking for new places to set up shop and lives life mostly as a vagabond.
  • Jerkass Façade: Farron seems to be rough around the edges, but when he encounters an orphan Dahaki girl named Raziel his true colors show.
  • Kill It with Ice: When Sesame's sword proves ineffective against the King Slime Kibbles freezes it so she can shatter it.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Claire gives Sesame a condescending lecture on personality, and how much smarter she (Claire) is by comparison, before immediately tripping over a rock and faceplanting.
  • MacGuffin: The Uber, which appears to be a tattered red scarf but has protect Sesame from danger and a town was destroyed by a group seeking it.
    • It seems that another Uber, a creepy eyeball, has attached itself to Sesame's hand.
  • Most Common Superpower: Pretty much every female character but Sesame, who has fairly normal sized breasts.
  • Nice Guy: Mason 'nuff said Lampshaded in one strip
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: Proto is hoping that one day Claire will one day give him "the ultimate upgrade."
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Sesame in most situations is incredibly strong for her size.
    • This is also mentioned in her backstory, suggesting plot relevance.

  • The Rival: Dante to Sesame. Her first appearance is to Kill Steal the King Slime and claim the loot drop.
  • Robot Kid: Proto falls into this category, complete with his own allowance from Claire!
  • RPG-Mechanics Verse: Specifically, MMO, complete with adventurers running into taverns yelling "LFG".
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Sesame wears one.
  • Snake Oil Salesman: Farron's Fair Deals and Extraordinary Traveling Shop is mostly full of faulty items that don't work as intended. Unless you are willing to pay a high price of course. Like a health potion that he claims was "slow-release" after Sesame drinks it and nothing happens.
  • Super OCD: Kylar, in his first appearance he gets agitated by his boyfriend placing his breakfast tray out of alignment with the fruit bowl.
  • Super Speed: Kylar here
  • Super Strength: Sesame appears to have developed this as a child
  • Techno Babble: Claire loves to tell you things you can't understand, most just tune it out.
