Witches X Warlocks is a fantasy Dating Sim created by Nifty Visuals, released via digital distribution for free on November 1, 2020. The player takes the role of Fay Nightshade, a matchmaker who has put off studying for far too long and now requires the assistance of three (four in the DLC) romanceable characters to help them pass their exams.
The love interests are:
- Zero: Fays gruff poltergeist childhood friend who has a soft spot for them.
- Damion: Fays sweet and shy Frankenstein-esque roommate.
- Carmilla: A charming vampire lady who enjoys teasing Fay.
- Lawrence: An option only in the DLC, he is a serious werewolf who eventually grows fond of Fay.
Tropes that appear in Witches X Warlocks:
- Animesque: A Japanese-style visual novel with characters drawn in a manner inspired from anime.
- Beware the Quiet Ones: Damion may be shy and anxious, but they come to Fays rescue on a few occasions that has Fay remarking on how unusual it is to see them so protective.
- Character Customisation: The player can customise Fays skin colour, hair colour, and pronouns.
- Childhood Friends: Zero and Fay have been friends since the latter was a small child.
- Cute Witch: Fay is a witch, and has a very cheerful, helpful and enthusiastic personality.
- Deadpan Snarker: Zero has a tendency to be very sarcastic towards Fay when they exasperate him with their antics.
- Flesh Golem: Damion is made out of different spare body parts, and often has to sow themself back together.
- Friendly Neighbourhood Vampire: Carmilla is the most obvious option, but everyone else qualifies as well due to the entire cast being made up of supernatural creatures.
- Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Fays first name is customisable. However, their last name will always be Nightshade.
- Lesbian Vampire: Or bi/pansexual vampire its notable that Carmilla is the only one of the love interests to have had an old flame, which is a human girl from a long time ago.
- The Matchmaker: Fays official job is helping people to fall in love and spreading joy around. Its too bad they get so into this they forget to study for their finals until its a week away.
- Non-Human Non-Binary: Damion is a Frankensteinian creature that often has to purchase new body parts at Mr Wests store and sow themself back together. They are also Nonbinary and use they/them pronouns.
- Older Than They Look: While the entire cast is made up of supernatural creatures and hence have lifespans numbering in the triple digits, Fay themself is mentioned to be over a century old. This may come as a surprise due to their childish and enthusiastic behaviour and appearing to be human visibly.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: Lawrence is a werewolf with wolf ears in his human form. They get mistaken as cat ears by Fay, much to his chagrin.
- Perky Goth: Fay dresses all in black and has spooky cobweb decorations in their design. Theyre also very excitable and enthusiastic and wants nothing more than to help the world find love.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Damion has pink hair and is very shy and sweet.
- Shrinking Violet: Damion is a very shy and quiet person, often stammering in their speech.
- Tsundere: Zero certainly acts this way towards the protagonist, chastising them for being an idiot one second and secretly admitting their affection the next.
