YMMV: Lanfeust

  • Cash Cow Franchise
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: the final battle of the first series, which involves Godzilla-sized energy clones beating the everloving crap out of each other... while over a densely crowded capital city.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Too many to count, but let's cite:
    • Drunk Lanfeust abuses his newfound power to create a dragon out of thin air. The dragon is too fat to fly... and instantly goes splat on the ground, giving the resident Fortune Teller several years' worth of reading material.
    • Army charges forward. Army meets woman whose power is to give anyone severe explosive diarrhea. Army hastily retreats, taking several casualties on the way.
    • Thanos learns where Lanfeust and Co. are. He interrupts a party in his honor, declares that his enemies will be dead soon and teleports to the reported location... only to come back a few seconds later asking for clothes, lots of clothes. Nobody told him Lanfeust had gone into the polar regions.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Thanos, in universe too.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Many fans wishe the series stopped with Lanfeut of Troy.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Thanos asks Cixi to execute his own brother by boiling the man's blood inside his body. Doubles as Nightmare Fuel.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The death scenes are a lot grittier and more graphic than the art style would initially lead you to believe. Thanos's brother's death is especially creepy.
  • Seasonal Rot: Lanfeust Des Étoiles is generally viewed as much weaker than the original series. People complained about the very chaotic plot and that it was a vehicle for a hurricane of very oafish puns. Especially the puns.
  • Theiss Titillation Theory: Cixi, again. At one point she shows up in what is essentially a bikini, cut into strips, and those strips arranged in spirals for maximum effect.
  • The Scrappy: Glin, Lanfeust's jerk son.
