''[[http://www.neorice.com/ A Path to Greater Good]]'' is an original PixelArtComic created by Guido "Neorice" Bos. The comic follows the stories of three people: Burk, a quixotic hero who has set out on a seemingly impossible quest, Noah, a young man who seems to be developing magical powers, and Tobi, an extremely unlucky young woman whose life falls apart in an instant. The three heroes have not crossed paths, but they all exist in the same world.

!!Tropes used include:
* ActionGirl: Tobi
* ArtEvolution: The early strips use RPG-style dialog boxes before switching to speech balloons. The character sprites have changed at least once, and the backgrounds switched from vector art to pixel art.
* ArtShift: The sprites themselves go through multiple iterations. From the first style, to a larger more detailed style to the current, more retro style (with detailed character profiles in speech bubbles.)
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Could Burk be [[ObfuscatingStupidity smarter than he looks]]?
** WordOfGod [[http://neorice.com/aptgg_burk_112 says so]]. Burk [[http://neorice.com/aptgg_burk_125 admits]] to [[InvokedTrope invoking]] the trope a few pages later, though it's unclear to what extent.

* CallingYourAttacks: "[[GreenThumb DRAGON COIL!]]" (According to the author: "[[IAlwaysWantedToSayThat I Always Wanted To Write That]]")
** "BOVINE KICK!" *kicks cow*
* CompanionCube: Mr. Acorn. The Emperor's hair is treated this way by fans.
* CrazyEnoughToWork: Burk's plan to free Gang Rule Town.
* DishingOutDirt: Sunny's ability.
* DoomedHometown: [[spoiler:Tobi's village]] appears to be an example, though there is evidence that [[spoiler:she was transported elsewhere instead]].
* DualWielding: Burk sees this ability as essential to the "[[BadAss Cool Guy]]" of his ideal party.
* ExpositionDiagram: Uses type 3 while [[DishingOutDirt Sunny]] explains how he's [[http://www.neorice.com/aptgg_271 able to bypass an attacker's magic shield]].

* InstantKnots: Lacey can do this with some sort of rope based weapon.

* OnlyAFleshWound: Subverted - [[spoiler:Tobi's wounds were actually near-fatal - she failed to realise this due to a "numbing venom"]].
