''[[http://www.wayrift.com/ Wayrift]]'' is an manga-styled fantasy web comic, based loosely off of the SNES version of the RPG game, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''. It has been ongoing for over a decade and has over 1,000 pages of archived artwork!

Wayrift is a collaboration of two writers/artist, Aywren and Syntyche, who are also real-life best friends. They work to host a welcoming community of writers and artists.

----
!! This webcomic provides examples of:
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch24-pg9/ Zemi]] can take on the form of a dragon or a person, rather than his Arweinydd form.
* ALightInTheDistance: How Ben and Leona met Aiden and Kory [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch1-pg2/ in chapter 1]].
* AccidentalKidnapping: [[http://www.wayrift.com/introduction-pt-2-pg-16/ Ben kidnaps Leona]] accidentally as part of the start of the story.
* ActionGirl: Leona
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Aiden, Drake, Kip, and Tai.
* AlternateUniverse: The Blue Star dimension and the Dark Star dimension.
* ArtEvolution: The earliest art is much more soft and fluffy and round. Though the very first pages were re-drawn, it goes back into the fluffy style and then slowly progresses.
* BathroomBreakOut: The [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch40-pg29/ last]] [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch40-pg30/ three]] [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch40-pg31/ pages]] of chapter 40 depict this.
* BerserkButton: If you make the decision to put Joran or Leona's life in danger, [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch31-pg37/ make sure Ben is not around...]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Ben, Aiden, and a few others are honestly really nice people. However, if you put someone they care about in danger, you're probably gonna die.
* BigNo: Kory on [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch12-pg4/ this page]]
* BilingualBonus: Dreigiau means Dragons in Welsh, and Arweinydd means Leader
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Tai has this, though he doesn't seem to be happy about it.
* BrandX: Ben is obssessed with a mascot known as Marney the Purple Chocobo.
* CliffHanger: A lot of chapters end in these
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Ben on [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch27-pg8/ this page]]
* {{Conspiracy Theorist}}: Kory is seen as one by the humans, see here [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch20-pg9/]] and [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch37-pg5/]].
* CuffsOffRubWrists: Zeb does this when [[spoiler: Fang releases him from prision.]]
** And it states in the script (though it isn't actually drawn) that Leona does this after being freed from the Hunter.
* {{Doppelganger}}: Ben and Zeb, DS Cecil and BS Cecil, Aiden Klu Ya and M. Klu Ya (I do believe the "M" stands for "Manly")... Thanks to the AlternateUniverse thing going on, many people have doubles.
* EarthThatWas: The Lunar planet of Runne was destroyed.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Both Ben and Zeb choose to go by their middle name or nick name to avoid using their actual first name, Golbez.
* EnergyBeings: All Arweinydd, but most noticeably [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch25-pg22/ Zemi.]]

* FacialMarkings: Drake's war paint and Tai's scar.
* ForgotICouldntSwim: Ben in [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch4-pg1/ Chapter four.]]
* HumanAliens: The Lunars. And the Nefolians, but they're just older Lunars.
* ICallItVera: Tai's Dullafn, Cecil Harvey's Legend, Ben's Onyx, Aiden's Sj’kudwe, Zeb's Unnamed and Zemi's Drei’Llafn (though I believe WordOfGod says that he got rid of it.)
* IncomingHam: "[[http://www.wayrift.com/ch36-pg8/ I AM ZEMI DREIGIAU!]]" ...Okay, so it's not his first line. But I bet it totally counts.
* {{Intermission}}: The nine page Hunter's Intermission comic before Chapter 18 should count for this.
* IsThisThingOn: Cecil's mic check before the Baron Airship Race goes on for like the first four pages in chapter 31 before Ben goes up to the stage to check on him.
* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: One one page, Leona starts to hum "Golbez, Clad in Darkness" to Ben. This is, of course, his theme song in the game.
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch10-pg17/ My middle name is Preparedness!]]
* MissionBriefing: Ben does this to himself on [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch10-pg1/ this page]]
* OhCrap: Zeb's (and probably most of the readers') reaction to what happens on [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch48-pg29/ this page]]
** Ben and Leona's reaction to arriving in Mount Ordeals on [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch11-pg15/ this page]] would count as an "oh crap" moment as well.

* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Kory on [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch23-pg39/ this page]]
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Ben often claims this about Leona. It's the other way around when people tease Leona about Ben being her boyfriend. However almost {{Everyone Can See It}}.
* ShiftingSandLand: Tai ends up on the outskirts of Damcyan, which happens to be in the middle of the desert in [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch35-pg14/ this page]], when Zemi ends up sending him to the Blue Planet.
* ShoulderSizedDragon: Depending on his mood, Zemi can choose to be this.
* ShoutOut: See the Brand X example above.
* SkunkStripe: Tsu used to have this. [[spoiler: It acted as a reminder that he was a slave to Zerom, but not entirely. It seems that it re-appears whenever he goes fully Marked.]] Junior also has a stripe, and is occasionally referred to as a skunk, but the rest of his hear is a light blonde color.
* SkyWardScream: [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch35-pg14/ ZEMMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!]]

* {{Superpowerful Genetics}}: Aiden, Ben and Cecil have inherited powers.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Averted. It's been stated that in DS Baron gold eyes are thought to be able to see the truth. Chase has these, along with the Truth Vision. Tai currently has them as well, as an outward symbol of his servitude to Zemi. [[spoiler: Chase's eyes are also a symbol of his (somewhat unknowing) sevitude to Zemi.]]
* SwordAndSorcerer: Ben & Leona, Tai & Zeb, Tai & Zazo, Cecil & Ben, Cecil & Zeb
* {{Tearjerker}}: Just try to read through Ben's [[spoiler:retelling of what happened to Joran]] without tearing up a little.
* TheAtoner: Ben and Zeb can certainly apply to this.
* TheMultiverse: "[[http://www.wayrift.com/ch1-pg19/ The “Ways”. It is the name of the place where all possible worlds that have been, will be, could be… come together in one point. It is a realm onto itself… a very dangerous realm… because the energy of so many dimensions meeting is very vast.]]"
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: The Scholar in Chapter 37 [[http://www.wayrift.com/ch37-pg7/ gets owned by Kory]] due to this.
* TragicKeepsake: Ben's medallion
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: In the beginning, when Ben, Leona, Aiden, and Kory are stuck in the Borderlands.
* UnsoundEffect: There are several examples, but "Loom-more" automatically springs to mind.
