"The sword of the paladin is not a weapon, but a tool. A tool for them to use to protect the innocent and pass justice onto the wicked."
Blue Ghost, Chapter 4

Paladin Academy: A Playground-Inspired Story is a Web Serial Novel written by Silverraptor on the GiantITP Forums. Originally a story about some of Silverraptor's friends as newbies in a school of Paladins, it has expanded to include a grand cast of... well, perhaps a dozen.


The first arc involved an invasion from the Legions of Hell and a traitorous Senior Paladin attempting to slay our heroes, Viola and Kurama. Unsurprisingly, they survived. He didn't.

It can be read in this thread on the forums.


  • Calling Your Attacks: The paladin's powers, although this seems to be optional since they pick the names themselves.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Grim. It is implied that while he was still Jerkass whilst a paladin, he was not evil.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Grim: from ordinary kid to first Blackguard and nearly destroyer of paladin order, to be specific.
  • Gilligan Cut: Bis suggests Nil is messing about with Mordakai's chair when the later's been left in charge. Cut to Nil spinning around in the chair while speaking to Blue.
  • Suicide Mission: A 14-year old girl invading hell alone? Yeah, that qualifies.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Jesse's Power is to partially become a dragon.

  • Your Days Are Numbered: At least according to Recaiden they are if you end up on his hit list. Bonus points for explaining the manner of victim's death in detail beforehand, too.


How well does it match the trope?
