Wakfu provides examples of the following tropes:

  • The Jailer: Justice Knight
  • Jaw Drop:
    • Sadlygrove at the sight of his master, Goultard, vanquishing Rubilax in one blow.
    • Amalia, when Grovy gets himself into a duel by defying her brother Armand.
    • Ruel in season 2 episode 8, after learning that Sadlygrove had seen Evangelyne naked, and not in a dream.

  • Jerkass Gods: The Twelve in spades. Iop's carelessness resulted in the destruction of the last world he presided over and and raped one of Sadida's dolls who then birth a monstrously strong offspring that defeated him, though Goultard seems a bit better; Xelor does nothing to stop his lieutenants from abusing their powers via tormenting mortals; Sadida buthcer the deformed offspring of his Doll's rape and abanonded her since he viewed her as tainted; one of Ecaflip's kid turned out completely rotten and corrupt; Osamodas has been known to curse anyone that insults him; and Pandawa became a goddess by intoxicating people into worshipping her. It says something when the Blood Goddess (Sacrier), God of Greed (Enutrof), and God of Thieves (Sram) are the least malevolent and destructive of a pantheon. It's gotten so bad, that the Season 3 main villain's motivation is to gather several demigods and have them replace the Twelve.

  • Jerkass Has a Point: Many of the points the Prince of Brâkmar makes during the Council of the Twelve, as the Eliacube and the Eliatropes are in fact quite dangerous and have destroyed entire worlds before.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • Ruel, though he's more of a skinflint with a heart of gold.
    • Amalia may be a little spoiled choleric princess, but she has moments when she is really concerned by the fate of her companions (like in "Vampyro" or "Gobbowl Hell III"), so she may qualify, too.
    • Remington nearly qualifies; he's an unforgivable douchebag to the heroes every single time he appears, but he's quite honorable if Grany's safety is involved.
  • "Join the Army," They Said: A Sufokian mook yells this during the battle in season 2 episode 25.
  • Joker Immunity: Remington and Grany. Unless you see the body, expect them to return.
  • The Juggernaut: Razortime

  • Juggle Fu: Grougaloragran with Yugo's baby carriage in episode 1.
  • Just Eat Him: This happens twice in episode 21, with Igôle swallowing whole first Az and then Adamaï, and being forced to regurgitate them both later. (Adamaï can even be seen pounding the beast's distended belly from the inside.) And again with Adamaï in Tofu form in episode 23 — this time, Igôle willingly spits him out.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Introduced as a special Gobbowl move in season 2 episode 12.
  • Kangaroo Court: The trials in Brâkmar.
  • Kawaiiko: Lady Glagla, one of the contestants of the singing competition in season 2 episode 15. To a very large degree.
  • Kiai:
    Fanny Bloc [Yugo's voice actress]: I actually practice Kendo — for those who know — and I used the famous Kiai yell when Yugo uses a portal.
  • Kick the Dog: Remington is pointlessly evil to Evangelyne, case in point being during season 2 episode 3 when he steals Evangelyne's Shushu and drops Sadlygrove's sword down a hole, when they had already agreed to trade. It was useless to him and Eva clearly had a reason to want it, but he just felt the need to spite her. In the same episode, he attacks her right after commending her for rescuing him. He later tries to sic Rushu's Dragon on her, because it "seemed like a good idea".
  • Kiss of Life:
    • Sadlygrove attempts to revive Evangelyne this way in episode 15, but she wakes up in time to thrust a kralamour (think jellyfish) in his face instead.
    • Played straighter in season 2 episode 4, where Sadlygrove loses no time giving mouth-to-mouth to Evangelyne — it's rather un-romantic this time, since Eva's life is truly at stake.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Nox
  • Knife Nut: Felinor's second-in-command.
  • Knockout Gas: The gas used by the Justice Knight inside his Justice Train, in episode 8 of season 2.
  • Lampshade Hanging:
    Nox: Maybe at last we'll see what is hiding under your hat!
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice:
    • The Justice Knight, fittingly.
    • The Mmmmmmmmmporpg has a monumental chin.
  • Large Ham: The Justice Knight
  • Large Ham Announcer: Jactance, the Bontarian Gobbowl Announcer has only one volume, and it ain't even close to conversation level. His brother Tendinite is also a Gobbowl Announcer, but is a bit more low-key.
  • Laser Blade:
    • Qilby can create a Sinister Scythe made of wakfu once he's absorbed the Eliacube.
    • Then, Yugo gets a sword and shield of wakfu for the final fight of season 2.
  • Last of His Kind: Mid-season 1 we discover that Yugo is the last Eliatrope alive. Subverted in season 2 episode 6 when Grougal's Dofus hatches with his partner Eliatrope and we learn that this wasn't actually the case to begin with.
  • Last-Second Chance: Unusually, Nox takes his and retreats. The finality with which he delivers his parting line indicates that he does not intend to return. The credits for episode 26 demonstrate this.
  • The Last Straw: On the Bellaphones' island, after the heroes' boat is deposited atop a precarious ledge by a tidal wave, some apes climb onboard and attack them. The subsequent fight makes the ship swing more and more, until everybody freeze... and then Az lands on one side of the boat, sending it sliding down the cliff.
  • Leave No Survivors: Implied as the reason why no-one has heard about Nox.
  • Legacy Character:
    • The Black Raven
    • The Justice Knight
  • Lethal Lava Land: Brâkmar
  • Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: The Dragon-Pig and Sadlygrove. Even though the fight is technically a draw, the Dragon-Pig accepts to let Ruel go and to remove the Baleful Polymorph on Yugo, Amalia and Eva, because it was a damn good tussle.
  • Let's Split Up, Gang!: Yugo and Adamaï decide to go their own way for some time, in episode 18. They return to the others by the end of episode 24.
  • Letting the Air Out of the Band: Used regularly, with some backround music suddenly puttering out along any Mood Whiplash. For example:
    • In season 1 episode 9, when McDeek finds out that he's shooting chocolate instead of energy.
    • The heavenly music during Enutrof's "Divine Intervention" in season 1 episode 16 derails when the god shoots down Ruel's expectations.
    • At the start of season 2 episode 5, the idyllic BGM is interrupted by the heroes' Stomach Groans.
    • One of the Justice Knight's rants has his leitmotif weakening when he stumbles on a word, to triumphantly resume afterward.
    • An in-universe example with the saxophone player in the bar who suddenly stops at the mention of Kriss' name in episode 10 of season 2.
  • Let Us Never Speak of This Again: The whole transformation into pigs incident in "The Dragon-Pig" for the Five-Man Band (especially Amalia).
  • Life Drinker: Nox, the "Devourer of Wakfu".
  • Life Energy: The eponymous wakfu, natch.
  • The Lifestream: The flow of wakfu, and also the reason why dragons and Eliatropes are technically immortal.
  • Lightning Glare: Shortly, between Sadlygrove and Evangelyne in episode 5.
  • Limited Wardrobe:
    • Yugo, Amalia and Evangelyne wear the same clothes most of the time, with exceptions made for the plot-related changing (like the princess dresses in episode 4 or the cheerleader outfits in the Bontarian Gobbowl arc).
    • However, Grovy gets a whole new look in episode 22, and Ruel gets a new outfit in the last two episodes of season 1, which he keeps for season 2.
    • Nox bears four different looks through season 1.
    • Evangelyne dons a new outfit for season 2, and while Amalia continues to wear her season 1 clothes, she's briefly shown in full princess garb (including in the opening sequence).
  • Literal Cliffhanger:
    • Yugo and Ruel in episode 9 of season 1.
    • A few for Eva, Remington, and Grany in Rubilaxia.
  • Literal Surveillance Bug: Nox uses robotic insects both to gather wakfu and as surveillance.
  • Living on Borrowed Time: During season 1, Nox, who is over 200 years old and only alive because he harvests the wakfu of other living beings. After giving up the Eliacube and thus the ability to drain wakfu, only dust is left of him.
  • Living Relic: Qilby
  • Living Shadow: Willow sends his own shadow to fight Sadlygrove in season 1 episode 14.
  • Load-Bearing Boss: Not Nox himself, but the Eliacube, arguably the real villain of season 1. When Nox drains it of power, all of his minions (and Nox himself) begin to fall apart.
  • A Load of Bull: The "Bullies" ("Taures" in French).
  • Loads and Loads of Races: At first glance, though in fact it is a subversion of this trope. The "races" in Dofus (and by extension Wakfu) are more along the line of classes or religions. The characters may change in appearance to match that of their gods, but all are still basically "humans" (and there are un-classed, baseline human NPCs too). Which explains why interbreeding — like with Kabrok (an Osamodas) and Miranda (an Ecaflip), or with Sadlygrove (a Iop) and Evangelyne (a Crâ) — is perfectly possible.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Prince Adal
  • A Long Time Ago, in a Galaxy Far Far Away...: The origin of the Eliatropes, according to Quilby.
  • Look What I Can Do Now!: Yugo, being more versed in wakfu manipulation and Sadlygrove, having tamed Rubilax, saving Evangelyne from Deserboss in episode 24.
  • Lost Technology: The Eliatropes' magic-science, like the Zaaps and the Eliacube.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: The Tree of Life in episode 20.
  • Love at First Sight: Jay, from his first glance at Evangelyne during the Bontarian Gobbowl match. Sadlygrove too, in fact. What's with Eva and Iops?
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: Rushu in his true form can morph his limbs and torso into Combat Tentacles and extra mouths.
  • Love Hurts:
    • Just ask Sadlygrove and Evangelyne.
    • Nox also has shades of this — and by shades, we mean his grief has driven him to commit omnicide. Animals, plants, entire countries, and he even attempted to take out an entire race.
    • It seems that, after the writers couldn't milk anymore drama from Sadlygrove and Evangelyne's relationship, Yugo and Amalia have become the poster children of this trope now. Their romantic woes are pretty much the main focus of their characters during Season 3.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Nox
  • Love Makes You Evil: Nox again.
  • Loyal Animal Companion:
    • Az for Yugo.
    • Junior for Ruel.
  • Loyal Phlebotinum: Ruel's Havresac has a security system, preventing anyone unauthorized to rummage into it. A Sadida prison guard makes the experience: the enchanted bag swallow him before spitting him out.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Yugo in episode 25 of season 2.
  • Luminescent Blush:
    • Used frequently. Sadlygrove and Eva in particular do this a lot near the end of season 1.
    • Yugo when Lady Glagla flirts with him in episode 14 of season 2.
    • Amalia has one in Season 2 of Episode 17, when Ruel tells her she should find love. Oddly just as Yugo appears next to them.


How well does it match the trope?
