Click here to see Grou's Season Two form 

Voiced by: Benoit Allemane (FR), Tom Clarke Hill (EN)

Another of the world's last surviving Dragons and the dragon-sibling of Chibi, Grougaloragran arranged an adoptive home for baby Yugo. He's probably one of the most powerful individuals on the planet, which unfortunately gets the attention of Nox.


  • Aura Vision: In spite of his blindness, he can see the aura and souls of people. This presents something of a problem if a particular aura overwhelms his senses; however, as he attacks the group originally because Rubilax's Shushu aura is potent enough to trip up his senses and make him think they're all enemies.
  • Badass Beard: A solemn white beard, even when in Dragon form.
  • Badass Boast: Also doubles as a Pre-Mortem One-Liner towards Rubilax.
    Grougaloragran: (as he's preparing to face the heroes): "You miserable Shushu, Grougaloragran will sent you back to the Hell you shouldn't have left!"
  • Back from the Dead: In season 2. As a hatchling, because Eliatropes and dragons have Born-Again Immortality.
  • Bare-Handed Blade Block: He effortlessly blocks Nox's sword with his arm.
  • Breath Weapon: He can breath scorching hot flames, as well as, apparently, regurgitate scalding, magma-like fluids.
  • Clothing Damage: During the fight against Nox on Oma Island, his robes get torn and burned.
  • Combat Tentacles: While in Giant Squid form.
  • Cool Old Guy: He can be a bit trigger-happy, but he's not a bad guy despite his advanced age.
  • Detect Evil: He can see evil auras as red lights using his Wakfu vision. This presents a problem when Rubilax's is so potent he can't tell the rest of the party aren't evil.
  • Deflector Shields: He can make wakfu barriers.
  • Dragon Hoard: He has one on Oma Island, and he's protective enough of it that he threatens to eat Ruel if he doesn't put what he took back.
  • Evil Detecting Dragon: As a baby, he absolutely hates Qilby. As an old dragon, he was also capable to detect the presence of Shushus thanks to his Wakfu vision.
  • Fire Balls: His main method of attack is launching fireballs from his mouth in Dragon form or launching them from his hands in human form.
  • Flight: Through magic in humanoid form, and giant wings in Dragon form.
  • Giant Squid: His chosen form to restrict the access to Oma Island.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Grougaloragran is a good guy, but ruthless towards perceived threats. He also threaten to eat Ruel if he doesn't put the treasure hoard he stole back.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In season 1 episode 17, he vaporizes himself in a last-ditch effort to kill Nox and prevent him from harvesting his wakfu. The former fails, but the latter worked.
  • Hot-Blooded: Whether as an old blind dragon or a spirited baby, let it not be said Grougaloragran isn't ready to throw down with the best of them.
  • Kill It with Fire: At one point he tries to kill Nox with a burst of fire so powerful it opens a new bay in Oma Island and causes a volcanic eruption.
  • Milky White Eyes: Due to his blindness.
  • Morphic Resonance: That beard looks mighty fine, be it in human or dragon form.
  • Old Soldier: Despite being positively ancient even by the standards of his kind and blinded in said age, he's still strong enough to give Nox the fight of his life.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Technically speaking, he's an alien dragon (to the World of Twelve), and a Black Dragon like Grugalorasalar, his counterpart among the six primordial dragons.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Chibi's blue when reborn.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Baby Grougal in season 2.
  • Supernaturally Delicious and Nutritious: As a Eliatrope dragon, he's one of the most powerful beings on the planet, as well as a titanic source of wakfu, which is what Nox is after.
  • Third-Person Person: He has a habit, at least in his old age, of referring to himself by name.
  • The Fog of Ages: Very old, can barely remember his past and is blind, only being able to see by wakfu vision.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Among his powers he can transform freely, usually into a humanoid form but also in a Giant Squid and probably much more.

    Phaeris the Powerful 

Phaeris the Powerful

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_phaeris_human_1440.jpg
Click here to see Phaeris' true form 

Voiced by: Jean Barney (FR), Keir Stewart (EN)

The third Dragon to be properly introduced in the series, the dragon-sibling of Mina, Phaeris makes his roost on the Crimson Claws Archipelago, and ferociously guards it against invaders. He's stationed there to prevent Qilby from reuniting with his dragon sister, Shinonome, and was responsible, along with Yugo, for defeating and sealing Qilby many years ago.


  • Arch-Enemy: To Qilby. Phaeris personally views him with nothing but contempt, but Qilby is livid with Phaeris for taking his arm.
  • Badass Bureaucrat: If Qilby is to be believed, he and his sister were the ones of the Council of Twelve to judge the quarrels among their people.
  • Breath Weapon: Like his brother Grougaloragran, he can fire powerful fire blasts.
  • Deflector Shields: He can form barriers of Wakfu, though they seems to be limited.
  • Determinator: Even for a Dragon, Phaeris can take a ridiculous amount of punishment. Stoically fends off an entire army, Anathar, and Qilby's barrage of energy projectiles before finally losing steam.
  • Flight: He can fly in both humanoid and dragon form due to his wings.
  • Glowing Eyes: In Dragon form, his eyes are pupiless and glow with Wakfu energy.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the manga, he trades his own life so Jiva will spare the brotherhood, joining his twin sister Mina at long last.
  • Magic Pants: When he goes from humanoid form to draconic form and vice-versa his pants are spared.
  • Mr. Exposition: For Yugo, though with very limited time. He reveals Yugo's true heritage and unlocks some of his latent abilities.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Dragons take monikers like "the Powerful" really seriously.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Even in comparison to Grougaloragran or Adamaï. Phaeris looks distinctly less humanoid in his smaller form.
  • Third-Person Person: Just like old dragons, Phaeris refers to himself in third-person.
  • Tron Lines: When surging with Wakfu.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting

    Balthazar 

Balthazar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_baltazarnorm.png
Click here for red Baltazar. 

Voiced by: Gérard Surugue (EN), Hugo Chandor (EN)

A really, really old red dragon who's been taking care of the Eliatrope children/orphans in their dimension. He is the dragon-sibling of Glip, and like him implied to have been a teacher/scholar.


  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In the manga, he tried to use the Eliacube to put the children of Emrub into stasis, but something went awry and he forgot who Yugo was and turned hostile.
  • Cool Old Guy: A teacher and caretaker for the Eliatrope children.
  • Papa Wolf: He's tasked with protecting the Eliatrope children, and actually panics and shields them with his body when they're subtly threatened by Qilby.
  • Perilous Old Fool: He's clearly old even for a dragon, and unlike Grougaloragran Qilby suggests he wasn't much of a warrior even in his prime. As such, he doesn't fare well at all when he tries to fight Qilby.
    Qilby: You never had a warrior's soul in you, Balthazar. Go back and bury your head in your books.
  • Turns Red: His entire body turns red whenever angry or when he wants to be powerful.

    Chibi 

Chibi

Voiced by: Gaspard Houze (FR), Julie-Ann Dean (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ea5abeefa5997d8f7337afd0214e2c63jpg.png

Grougaloragran's Eliatrope sibling, first appearing early in season two when along with Grougal's reincarnated form he hatches from their Dofus as a result of Yugo and Adamai's experiments with the Eliacube; spends the rest of the season being cared for by Alibert.


  • Brother–Sister Incest: Islands of Wakfu reveals that one of Chibi's past incarnations was in a relationship with his sister Mina, though this is played with since while the original six Eliatropes and Dragons consider each other "siblings" due to their unique circumstances, only the members of each of the Eliatrope-Dragon pairs seems to consider each other actual blood siblings.
  • Emperor Scientist: He was the prior king of the Eliatropes before naming Yugo his successor, and he was also a researcher and scientist. Qilby even claims it was he who made the Eliacube, though that particular invention technically goes to Qilby himself.
  • The Good King: Prior to naming Yugo his successor and returning to his Dofus, he was in charge of leading the Eliatrope civilization and set up the laws his people would abide by.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Grougal's red. Chibi is a calmer and more obedient child compared to his dragon brother.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Alibert takes care of Chibi like he took care of Yugo.
  • Seers: According to Islands of Wakfu, Chibi was a "prophet" and foresaw his own impending death, which prompted him naming Yugo his successor.
  • You Gotta Have White Hair

    Alibert 

Alibert

Voiced by: Thierry Mercier (FR), Joe Mills (EN), Gabriele Trentalance (IT)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_alibert_6016.png

Yugo's adoptive father. An Enutrof and old adventuring companion of Ruel, although less greedy than his friend. Formerly a Bounty Hunter, but he found out he was too soft-hearted for the job when he refused to send a man to jail for stealing an apple — which made Grougaloran choose him for taking care of baby Yugo. So he settled in Emelka, founding an inn and becoming mayor of the town.


  • Badass Mustache: He doesn't have a beard, but rather some massive, stylish moustache to compensate.
  • The Bartender: Currently the mayor of Emelka, he also runs the inn, though he also cooks.
  • Bounty Hunter: Previously, along with Ruel.
  • Chef of Iron: He's a former adventurer of great skill and power, and his blanquette is awesome.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In an incredible moment of willpower and fighting prowess, he managed to overpower Big Bad Nox and send the time mage running, though not without cost.
  • Gentle Giant: He is big and has a rather impressive build, but a total sweetheart and a very loving father to Yugo.
  • Muggle Foster Parent: To Yugo and, in season 2, Chibi.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Alibert differs from the Enutrof norm in that he is very generous. He voluntarily feeds the group for free in the Sadida kingdom, and doesn't mind Ruel's debt. In fact. the only time he is ever shown caring about Kamas is when customers in the inn flee from the Rubilax-possessed Sadlygrove without paying first (although it should be noted that Yugo pointed this out first).
  • Nice Guy: Alibert is shown to warm, caring person. As stated by Yugo "Grougal knew that no one would be a better father." His kind heart is actually the main reason he stopped being Bounty Hunter, as could not bring him self to arrest a man who had stolen an apple.
  • Nice Hat: An enormous toque blanche.
  • Not Quite Dead: In episode 2 he's is changed into a plant by the Polters, but by the end of the episode he gets better.
  • Papa Wolf: He won't hesitate to use violence if Yugo is in danger.
  • Rapid Aging: He suffers this from fighting Nox. The Xelor does correct the situation afterward, though, to Alibert's astonishment.
  • Retired Badass: Used to be Ruel's partner during his days as a bounty hunter.
  • Shovel Strike: His looks more like a traditional spear or glaive though.

    Goultard 

Goultard

Voiced by: Bruno Choel (FR), Cyrille Monge (FR, As Dark Vlad), Anthony Adonis (EN, Season 1-2 & OV As), Ben Pronsky (EN, Season 3)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_goultard_503.jpg

Sadlygrove's Iop master, and badass extraordinaire.


  • The Ageless: He's virtually immortal and hasn't aged one bit since he reached his prime.
  • Barbarian Hero: Downright called "Goultard the Barbarian" during the Dofus era for his prowess and savagery.
  • Barred from the Afterlife: Was booted out of the Hours Demon Arena for beating up too many of the fighters and rendering the fights boring for the entities ruling that dimension.
  • Battle Aura: When he gets serious, he gets a golden-orange one, which represents him channeling the god Iop's power.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In season 2, he shows up just in time to battle Rushu, saving Sadlygrove and Rubilax from a hopeless fight.
    • And in the Special Episodes, he comes up with the plan to save the World of Twelve from a Colony Drop.
  • Book Dumb: He is smarter than Sadlygrove...but he is still a Iop.
  • Cain and Abel: Aside from his split personalities, he's the Abel to Cornu Mollu, the demented divine son of Iop and Lacrima who tried to destroy the world.
  • Cartwright Curse: His lovers, and his loved ones, don't last very long.
  • The Casanova: His Vald persona, though the polygamy is born out of his inability to say "No" to a woman's amorous advances.
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: In the Dofus lore, he and his half-Dragon Feca companion Arty took on Cornu Mollu, the monstrous half-Sadida half-Iop god who already defeated the Iop God and took his divine powers and won. By the time of the OVA, Goultard has defeated even Rushu.
  • Demonic Possession: Got over it.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He wrecked Rushu around like a ragdoll. Then Rushu absorbed all his Sushus and gain a massive powerup, and they became equal, which forced him to drag Rushu back to his home dimension. Come the Wakfu Specials, and he's shown to have finally beaten Rushu in his own home, and is currently using him as his footstool.
  • Divine Delegation: He has inherited the powers and duties of Iop while the latter lives a mortal life.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Never seen wearing shoes.
  • Dreadful Musician: According to Rushu's Shushus, he'd love to be remembered as a minstrel, but his music is so awful people cannot help but yell at him for it.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Spent a good teal of time rampaging around the World of Twelve as a violent warlord before he got hold of his senses.
  • Faking the Dead: He even had an impressive tomb.
  • Freudian Trio: His three personalities, Dark Vlad (id), Vald (ego), and Goultard himself (superego).
  • Genius Bruiser: Pretty smart by normal standards, which probably makes him the most intelligent Iop in the entire world.
  • Giggling Villain: While in his Dark Vlad persona.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After years of living the life of a barbarian vagabond, he lent his strength to the Shushu Knight cause, though this is a fairly recent turn of events.
  • Horrifying the Horror: Rubilax is hilariously terrified of him.
  • Improbable Weapon User: See Weapon of Choice.
  • Invincible Hero: As the son of Iop, he's nigh indestructible, has absurd amounts of natural strength, and is even capable of coming back from the dead. That said, the interest in his adventures stems more from how his life is going to screw him over rather than whether or not it will end.
    • The Special Episodes reveal even more about why he's invincible: he is the recipient of Iop's power due to the god currently reincarnating as a mortal named Sadlygrove.
    • Subverted in Season 3, where he was defeated by Adamai and forced to turn into Dark Vlad, and later he doesn't fare any better against an Eliacube-empowered Oropo.
  • I Shall Taunt You: He's not afraid to mock even a Physical God:
    Rushu: You think you can upset me with your insults?
    Goultard: By Iop, no! I know you're way too stupid to understand even half of it.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: His primary personality, though he seems to have lightened up quite a bit by the time Wakfu starts.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Though he subtly hinted at it before taking off to the Shrukete with Rushu in tow before the portal between dimensions closed at the end of Season 2, the OVAs confirm with both his own words and Rubilax's that Sadlygrove is in fact his reincarnated God in Human Form father, Iop.
  • MacGuffin Guardian: Becomes one for the Six Eliatrope Dofus at the end of the OVAs as a favor to Yugo. Unfortunately, by Season 3 Oropo and Adamai have not only managed to steal them, Adamai uses them to power up and pummel Goultard so they can unleash Goultard's Dark Vlad personality and have him join their side.
  • Master Swordsman: His most prominent weapon is a chain attached to a broken sword, which he uses to devastating effect. It was a gift from his father Iop.
  • The Mentor: For Sadlygrove. Particularly amusing considering Sadlygrove is his unaware father.
  • Milky White Eyes: In Goultard the Barbarianbut not in Wakfu.
  • My Greatest Failure: The reason he prefers hanging out in the desert? Because it was the site of a bustling city that he burned to nothing and devastated into the lifeless place it is today as Dark Vlad.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: He could sense Rushu's arrival to the World of Twelve the instant he touched down.
  • The Noseless: As befits a Iop.
  • Odd Couple: With his half Feca/half Dragon companion Arty in the Dofus Manga.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Season 2 ended with him and Rushu still going at it in the Shrukete. Come the Special Episodes and he's using Rushu as a footrest.
  • Old Master: See Really 700 Years Old.
  • Paint It Black: After being possessed by the emotion-eating demon, his hair turns white and his skin black.
  • Physical God: If you take him at his word in the Season 2 finale. Confirmed in the Special Episodes, he is for all intents and purposes the Iop god while the genuine article is away.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: As a kid. Even then, he had ridiculous levels of strength and was already beating up colossal monsters as a toddler.
  • Pointy Ears: As part of his racial trait, Goultard sports elfin ears.
  • Precursor Heroes: He was an important hero in Dofus, ages before the time of Wakfu.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: The hat of the Heart of Iop, Goultard even looks down on the other races who assumes that this trait makes the Iop a race of dumb warriors.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Possesses Immortality by means of a curse/Demonic Possession from the time of Dofus, 1000 years before the setting of Wakfu. He seems to have gotten rid of the demon during that time, but retained the immortality.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: Both Sadlygrove and Rubilax were under the impression he was dead for some time before the start of the first season, tomb and everything. Goultard basically tells Sadlygrove "well, I'm not dead anymore!" and as for Rubilax...
    Goultard: Death's terribly overrated, you know.
  • Retired Badass: By the time of Wakfu he's content with pretending to be dead and mentoring Sadlygrove. He comes out of retirement when Rushu invades.
  • Semi-Divine: He's the son of the Iop God.
  • Stepford Smiler: A lot of jolliness and easy-going nature is genuine, but it's shown in Season 3 through both a flashback with Sadlygrove and the words of Dark Vlad as he and Sadlygrove fight that Goultard is carrying a lot of pain and regret from a lifetime of losses, mistakes, and unresolved issues with his divine father Iop.
  • Super Strength: Even greater than most other Iops. And he already had it as a kid.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Subverted with Dark Vlad, as he's not Goultard at his strongest despite using abilities Goultard doesn't and, while still dangerous in his own right, he's also an "illiterate weirdo" who's too stupid to navigate his way out of a forest despite having dozens of maps of the area, which he is also incapable of reading.
  • Too Happy to Live: He originally retired while relatively young and started a family. They were then killed by a guy possessed by an emotion-eating demon, in order to draw him out and feed on his resultant rage. Then he beat the killer, and the demon switched bodies....
  • Top God: According to Lady Echo, he's the strongest among the Twelve Gods, though according to Adamai, the true Iop is even stronger (possibly as a matter of physical power alone).
  • Unexplained Recovery: He was said to have died, and even has a bigass tomb, but he's alive and well, being an ageless demigod.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When finding out that Katar has killed his family.
  • Variable-Length Chain: The chain attached to his sword seems to be capable of extending itself as long as it needs to, such as being long enough to eclipse Rushu's giant form.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Good luck finding a scene where he's not bearing his abs to the world, save when he's in his Dark Vlad personality.
  • Warrior Poet: Views Iop bullheadedness as an all-encompassing life philosophy in itself, and talks about it with an eloquence that's unusual for his kind.
  • Weapon of Choice: A BFS with a broken blade attached to a chain of variable length.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_armand_8449.jpg

The prince of the Sadidas, Amalia's brother, and a royal ass. Suffers from a terrible case of halitosis.


  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the heir of the throne, and one of the best fighters of his Kingdom, mentioned to have been trained by the best fencing masters. He gives Dally a better fight on his own than a whole squad of Sadida Guards.
  • Berserk Button: Don't mention Armand's bad breath to his face. Sadlygrove saying it has him summoning the biggest plant monster yet and unrepentantly smashing him away despite the Iop already being injured enough Evangelyne had to support him to get up.
  • Can't Live Without You: Like the rest of the Sadida, with the Tree of Life.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Sadlygrove tells Armand he has pig breath. Armand's response is to try and kill him (or at the very least severely maim him) with a giant man-eating plant.
  • Foil: To Sadlygrove. Both are after Evangelyne, both are full of themselves and enjoy showing off and both are skilled warriors. But while Sadlygrove tries to fight with honor, Armand is more than willing to humiliate his opponents, or even go for the killing stroke, Sadlygrove prefers swords and melee attacks while Armand uses ranged combat with his plants, and finally while Grovy is fairly socially awkward, Armand is fully composed.
  • Green Thumb: Like all Sadidas, he has powers over plants.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Towards Evangelyne, whom he's desperately trying to court before she becomes an Official Couple with Sadlygrove.
  • Jerkass: He's contemptuous and unpleasant most of the time, especially towards Sadlygrove.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The King revealed that Armand was the most torn up about Amalia leaving and was overjoyed when they got a snowglobe from Bonta showing she was safe.
  • Man-Eating Plant: He controls a giant one in battle.
  • Oh, Crap!: When a Rubilax-possessed Sadlygrove has stated his intention to rip him a new one.
  • Pet the Dog: He's actually the one who convinced his father to not send guards to stop Amalia's running away, arguing that she needed some time away from the cramped way of life they were forcing her to live. The King also mentions that he often worried for her safety and was overjoyed to learn about her victory at the Gobbowl final in Bonta.
  • Prince Charmless: His unpleasant personality (and bad breath) explain why Evangelyne isn't the least interested in him.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He deserves a mention for personally leading his kingdom's armies in the front line alongside his father during the climactic battle against Nox's army
  • Tentacle Rope: He can summon these to restrict his foes' movements.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Armand calms down a lot in Season Two, being less quick to anger and more respectful of other people.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass:
    • Back to his assholish self in the Special Episodes, to the point where he not only condescends to Grovy (as usual) but also to Yugo, Eva, and even his own sister. Probably has something to do with the fact that his kingdom is about to be destroyed by a cataclysm...
    • In Season 3, after he got married, he and his new Osamodas consort are trying to push Amalia to marry and he's even more bitter at her for her wanderlust.
  • Warrior Prince: He's a prince, and a fighter.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Brought up in the Special Episodes. The reason (well, part of the reason) Armand can be such a Jerkass is because he feels he's The Unfavorite, when compared to his little sister who has saved the world on more than one occasion.
  • Whip It Good: With Sadida brambles.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: Like all the Sadida.
  • You Need a Breath Mint: His bad breath is mentioned many times, and people close enough to smell it agree. It's clearly a sensitive point for him.

Kabrok / The Black Raven

Voiced by: Richard Darbois (FR), Patrick Bethune (FR, Mini-Wakfu),

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_kabrok.png
Click here to see the Black Raven 

A former Osamodas adventurer who married with the beautiful Ecaflip merchant Miranda and set a shop, but secretly still longs to be an adventurer. He's the previous owner of Grufon and challenges the Brotherhood over it.


  • Air Jousting: Given his aerial mount and his lance-like weapon of choice, his melee tactic consist in swooping down and slash at his opponents on the ground or midair.
  • Anti-Villain: Destroying the stalls of the other merchants just to vent his frustration is pretty douchey, but he's mostly a guy having a midlife crisis after a youth full of adventure. He's never shown directly killing or seriously maiming anyone, and he actually saves Grovley when the latter is falling to his doom during their fight because he simply wants to fight the Brotherhood of the Tofu to find back the thrill of his old adventuring days, not because he wants to kill them.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Even though he really hates being a simple merchant and dislikes his wife's attempts to make him one, he and Miranda genuinely love each other.
  • Babies Ever After: The epilogue reveals that Miranda is pregnant, and both look adorably happy about it.
  • Badass Boast: His catchphrase as the Black Raven: "Fear the Flame of Darkness! Fear your worst nightmare! Tremble before the power of the Black Raven!"
  • Blade on a Stick: A shiny black sword which can grow into size to serve as a lance.
  • Cool Helmet: One shaped like a raven's head. Not so cool though when it gets struck as he's trying to make a dramatic reveal.
  • Cool Old Guy: How many old merchants can boast about being an accomplished adventurer who can still give young adventurers like the Brotherhood of Tofu a run for their money?
  • Evil Laugh: A bombastic one as the Black Raven, fittingly enough.
  • Fair-Play Villain: While he fights the heroes while airborne, he's alone against five (as Yugo pointed out later) and even rescues Grovley when he's about to fall to his death (while mocking him at the same time).
  • Graceful Loser: After being defeated he gives in the map immediately and even if he's clearly sullen, he still compliment and encourages Yugo with a big grin on his face.
  • Henpecked Husband: With his wife Miranda, hilariously enough. Not even in his Black Raven persona he thinks of opposing her.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Yugo uses his Eliatrope portals to send his raven projectiles into his own back.
  • Karma Houdini: Not that he's the worst person out there, far from it. Still, he several times destroyed the stalls of merchants who did nothing to him just to vent his frustration, and he never truly gets a comeuppance for it. Notice that he doesn't show any indication that he will stop at the end of his episode.
  • Large Ham: As the Black Raven, fittingly enough, becoming a bombastic villain à là "Phantom of the Opera".
  • Not So Different: He tries to invoke this with Ruel (who seems to disagree) when talking about choosing adventure over a comfortable life.
  • The Red Baron: The Black Raven (The Black Crow in the English version.) Which is then mocked and discussed by Yugo when he points out that it's meaningless, since all ravens are black (He claims that it's to highlight the darkest faces of his nature, like "The Black Knight") and eventually try to suggest a cooler moniker like "The Demon Raven", "The Dark Raven" and the "Sinister Raven".
  • Say My Name: Miranda tends to shout his name in anger or annoyance, usually when he goes missing.
  • Shout-Out: His other weapon shoots little bird pellets, kinda like a certain popular game...
  • This Is Gonna Suck: His face when he realize that Yugo is about to dropkick him from above. Also when Miranda confronts him.

Kriss Krass

Voiced by: Mathias Kozlowski (FR), Taylor Clarke-Hill (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_kriss_10.jpg

A Sacrier Gobbowl champion and the main antagonist during the "Gobbowl Hell" arc. Kriss Krass isn't necessarily a bad guy, but he's a hopeless show-off, doing whatever he can to drag out a match and wring the last drops of admiration from his audience. Got his own 4-part comic called "Boufbowl", which shows his rise to fame.


  • Alliterative Name: Kriss Krass.
  • Angrish: Toward Jay the Iop at the end of the Bontarian match.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He's good at Gobbowl, there's no doubting that, but his showboating ends up being his downfall because he spends so much time gloating instead of just making the final goal of the Bontarian match that Sadlygrove is able to get up and knock him down, letting Yugo get the ball and score victory for their side. Less obvious in his return in the second season, since this time the penalty for losing is his own life and potentially that of Yugo and company.
  • Attention Whore: This guy will happily make unnecessarily flashy moves just to rile up his fans' excitement even more.
  • Blood Knight: Comes with being a Sacrier. Played with in that he applies it to his Gobbowl matches instead of actual fights, doing whatever he can to complicate and draw out the game.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: He can take pretty much everything, having the Healing Factor of his class.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: With Yugo and co. after their match, which comes in handy when they need to save him from execution in the second season.
  • Famed in Story: Fans love his over-the-top Gobbowl style.
  • Foregone Conclusion: In-universe for the Boufbowl comics; His dad knew he'd become a gobbowl player, despite his efforts to stop him.
  • Graceful Loser: Takes his loss to Yugo and the team pretty well, all things considered, to the point he even considered it a genuine learning experience.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: He masters this move with a gobball in season 2.
  • Milky White Eyes: Being a Sacrier, not only has he a flat nose and Pointy Ears, but also completely white eyes which doesn't prevent him from seeing.
  • Power Tattoo: Like all Sacriers, he has a heart-shaped tattoo on his chest.
  • Sixth Ranger: Temporarily, for Yugo's gang in the second season's Gobbowl arc.
  • Spirited Competitor: In the sense that he wants his matches to be ones he wins with a bit of effort. He dislikes a Curb-Stomp Battle in his team's favor because he feels it doesn't make him stand out nearly as much, while a decently close victory nets all the more genuine praise and love from the masses who love how he wins against the odds. As such, he's not above giving himself or the team a bit of a handicap to let the opposing team close the gap.
  • Unnecessary Roughness: Not like his fans don't like it, though.

    The Justice Knight 

The Justice Knight

He is a KNIGHT of JUSTICE. Clad in blinding golden armor and hammier than a pig farm, he and his father were in charge of keeping Anathar sealed.


  • Bling of War: His armor, shield and swords are gilded and shiny.
  • The Cape: OF JUSTICE.
  • Chest Insignia: "J" for Justice.
  • Clasp Your Hands If You Deceive: Does this pose as he opens the "war council" with the Brotherhood on the argument of the escaped Anathar.
  • Cool Train / Thememobile: The Justice Train.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: "Justice calls for... Justice!"
  • Detect Evil: His Justice Train has a Shushu-locating device.
  • Dual Wielding: Two swords, he wields. He also carries a shield which he can use while he lends his sword to his companions.
  • Everybody Calls Him "Barkeep": Played with. His real name is unknown, but he calls himself the Justice Knight, even though he's actually a jailer. Dally briefly refers to him as "Justice".
  • Expressive Mask: His mask moves with his facial movements and expression, complete with audible metal noise.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Played with. He certainly likes to view himself as a hero, but he's courteous enough to give credit where it is due (i.e. complimenting Yugo's gang for helping out against Anathar), and he's shown to be rather competent at his job — just not as good as Yugo and his friends.
  • For Great Justice: Very, very much so.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: He seriously believes in his job and thus his armor and weapons are golden.
  • Hero Antagonist: Only temporarily, though.
  • I Am the Noun:
    "I AM the good guy! Have you seen the size of my armor?"
  • It's Personal: Though he'd chase any Shushu for Justice!, it's personal with Anathar since he's possessing his father's body. Also why he considers Sadlygrove responsible for letting Rubilax rampage.
  • The Jailer: He and his family seem to make a living out of this profession.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: A llteral example, given his title and the fact that his entire armament is golden and shiny.
  • Large Ham: To say that he really enjoys his job is putting it mildly.
  • Sixth Ranger: Joins the group in the second volume of the manga. He even lends the heroes his Cool Train. (His father wanted to go too, but admitted that he's too old for adventuring.
  • Squeaky Eyes: The eyebrows of his golden mask make a rusty squeaking sound.
  • Super Hero: Spoof of the whole concept.
  • Supporting Leader: Took it upon himself to lead the gang (and Remington) in the counterattack against Anathar.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: During the second season, the Justice Knight was a Large Ham who nevertheless was smart enough to track down and capture the heroes, and strong enough to survive a fight against Rushu's Dragon Anathar and even to contribute in said fight. By the time of the comics, the only useful thing Justice ever does is let the heroes use his Cool Train, besides panicking during some battles and sleeping through other battles.
  • Twinkle Smile: Just as shiny as the rest of him.

    The Masked Gobbowler 

The Masked Gobbowler / Maude

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_masked_gobbowler_8576.png
Click here to see the Masked Boufbowler unmasked 

A champion gobbowler, the captain of the Brâkmarian team Brak'n'Black, whose name and face are kept hidden.


  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Played with. Maude's a very powerful Gobbowler, and she was the leader of both teams that she played alongside. In Brâkmar, said position of champion even gives the Masked Gobbowler some power over justice decisions, like when given the choice to accept or refuse Kriss' challenge.
  • Cool Mask: Justified; that mask is to hide that she's a girl, since Brâkmarian Gobbowl doesn't allow female members to play in the game.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Half of her outfit is black, and while she brutal (gobbowl is a Blood Sport), she's far from a villain.
    • Also downright pleasant compared to the other Sram encountered by the Brotherhood, Toxine.
  • Dramatic Unmask: In season 2 episode 11, the Masked Gobbowler takes off the mask to prevent Kriss Krass's premature execution by revealing she herself is a woman after Amalia and Eva accidentally out themselves.
  • Facial Markings: Underneath the mask, she has large cheek tattoos descending from her eyes down to the length of her chin, and one on her nose.
  • Famed in Story: Apparently quite well-known amongst Gobbowl fans and players.
  • Fanservice Extra: Her off-duty outfit in the flashback.
  • Just Toying with Them: The commentators assume this is what the Masked Gobbowler is doing to Kriss Krass, as the player spends most of the match either staring down Kriss or intentionally fouling a play to send a message of clear superiority. In reality, Maude doesn't want him to die and is intentionally giving openings for Kriss to exploit to win.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: The secret Gobbowl technique, which covers the gobball in a shining aura before sending it flying like a destructive comet.
  • Legacy Character: The Boufbowl comics reveal that Kriss' dad was the first Masked Gobbowler.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Usual strategy when playing Gobbowl.
  • Number of the Beast: Close enough; the Masked Gobbowler's player number is 665.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: As long as her true identity is secret.
  • Opera Gloves: Part of her off-duty outfit; elbow-length gloves that reveal the top half of her hands.
  • Panty Shot: Though it almost functions like smaller-scale shorts, she still gets one when she uses her Kamehame Hadoken onto a wall.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: The Masked Gobbowler has a very complex and precise control of gobballs.
  • The Quiet One: Never says a word until near the end of Season 2, episode 11. Justified since doing so would immediately out her as a woman.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Justified, that's why she wears a mask.
  • Sexy Mentor: One thing's for sure; Kriss has a great taste in women.
  • Ship Tease: With Kriss, considering the fact that she cares about him, blushes when he kisses her as a distraction from a spectator realizing she was playing gobbowl, and was willing to throw a match and her own reputation down the toilet to save his life.
  • Stripperific: Elbow-length gloves, thigh-highs, a bra, panty-shorts, and a very short pocket-thing with a long loincloth.

    Pandiego De la Vega 

Pandiego De la Vega

A rude yet experienced Pandawa encountered by the Brotherhood during their journey through Pandalusia, which at the time was undergoing a localized Zombie Apocalypse where anyone who drank the salt-spoiled bamboo milk turned into intangible bamboo monsters called the Thirsters that mercilessly hunted down the uninfected. The Brotherhood (particularly Amalia) helped him cure the inhabitants and devise the means to prevent a repeat of the experience.


  • Abnormal Ammo: His milk-pumps, as the name suggests, are used to shoot Bamboo milk at the Thirsters.
  • Anti-Hero: Pandiego won't be winning any points for manners or cleanliness, but he was honest about helping Amalia save her friends if she helped him save the other Pandawas.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Granted, Amalia was the one with more hang-ups to siding him with him given his lack of hygiene, but the two did grow a healthy respect for each other by the end of the episode.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's handy in a tussle, and he spent a decent amount of time setting up defenses and warning systems against the Thirsters as well as trying to breed a new crop of bamboo that can survive in salt water to deal with the long-term issue of a repeat outbreak.
  • Heroic BSoD: Played for laughs, he cries and becomes reluctant to complete his plan to save his village when he sees just how much bamboo milk Pandaniels has stored, thinking that it would be a waste.
  • The Pig-Pen: Pandawa are stereotyped, according to Amalia, as not being the cleanest beings, and Pandiego doesn't do much to fight that image, given his lack of care towards hygiene.
  • Shout-Out: His name is a panda Pun on Don Diego de la Vega.
  • Spit Shake: He offers one to Amalia to seal their promise to help each other out. Amalia is less than pleased but agrees, and by the end she is the one to offer the spit shake first.

Black Ink Voiced by: Martin Brieuc (FR), Hugo Chandor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elaine_y_encre_noire_9651.jpg

A father-daughter pirate duo. While Elaine is human, her father is an octopus, but the episode "The Bellaphone Island" reveal that Elaine is adopted. They're hired by the Brotherhood of the Tofu to take them to the Crimson Claw Island.


  • The Alleged Ship: Their bathtub was the only ship cheap enough for Ruel to hire.
  • Badass in Distress: In the episode they're introduced, Elaine gets captured by pirates, yet still manages to give one of her captors a beatdown.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Elaine.
  • Bowel-Breaking Bricks: In "Bellaphones Island", Encre Noire squirts a puddle of ink underneath him twice.
  • Captain Morgan Pose: They like to take this pose in Tangomango bonus art.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Elaine only wears straps around her feet that cover part of her soles, but leave most of her bare toes, soles and heels exposed which leaves her basically barefoot. She also wears baggy pants, which when mixed with her barefeet makes her a very down-to-earth little pirate.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Subverted. The patch Encre Noir wears is fake, and both his eyes are fine.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Encre Noir only wears a pirate hat.
  • Interspecies Adoption
  • Luke Nounverber: The graphic novel gives her full name as "Elaine Narrowsmith".
  • Oblivious Adoption: According to the Tangomango comic, Elaine believes that she's an octopus like Encre Noir, and that her lack of tentacles is just because she's young.
  • Pirate Girl: Elaine's style.
  • Skinny Dipping: Elaine at the start of Tangomango.
  • Spin-Off: Like many other characters of this series, they got their own comic book, Tangomango.

    Prince Adale 

Prince Adale

Voiced by: Alexandre Gillet (FR), Eric Meyers (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakfu_prince_adale_4123.jpg

The prissy, effeminate, tea-sipping prince of the lost kingdom of New Sufokia. He shows up at the Crimson Claws Archipelago with an army of militarized submarines, aiming to subdue Phaeris the Powerful and strip the islands of the ore that fuels his machines. He and his forces inadvertently become key players in the series' final battle.


  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Averted, assuming he was being honest when he claimed Sufokia was a "peaceful nation".
  • General Failure: His demeanor is enough to maintain morale, but the man hasn't any grasp of strategy. He has his fleet fire wildly across the entire battlefield, even the areas his own troops occupy. Their performance improves considerably when he's advised to just aim where the enemy were coming from instead.
  • Graceful Loser: Downplayed, though noticeably when Amalia points out a better strategy after he demeaned her before, not only he does follow her advice, but he also acknowledge that he was wrong.
  • Hidden Depths: Initially comes off as just another pompous, corrupt monarch, but has Nerves of Steel.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Nay-Theist: He denies the existence of true gods, instead believing there are only some beings with abnormal powers that he wishes to kill.
  • Nerves of Steel: Faces down a charging dragon and the entire population of the Shukrute with nothing more than mild annoyance. Even when his Bridge Bunnies comically freak out, he keeps utterly unflappable.
  • Not So Stoic: He loses his mind when his personal vessel is damaged, pitching a red-faced tantrum all over the helm.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He doesn't particularly care if Yugo and co. get caught up in his salvo of energy weapons, but he refrains from going after them personally and quickly backs down in the face of Amalia's counsel. And even though he's a terrible tactician, he'll admit that someone else has a better plan and use it.
  • Rising Empire: The ending credits show him constructing some kind of fortress over the archipelago. New Sufokia is on the rise.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Spearheaded the Crimson Claws voyage specifically because he didn't want to be seen as an idle monarch.
  • Spanner in the Works: The presence of his navy completely scuttles Qilby's plan to sic an army of Shushus on Yugo and Phaeris, since they immediately begin bombarding Rushu's army and tip him off that Qilby wasn't being honest.
  • Spot of Tea
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: His strategy for anything hostile on Crimson Claws is to bombard it with Frickin' Laser Beams until it stops twitching.

A Sufokian and right-hand woman to Prince Adale, General Mofette defers reluctantly to his authority despite her being suspicious of those who might obstruct their plans...and becomes just slightly enthusiastic when going into battle.
