Web Animation / Knights Of All Realms

Go To

The Knights of All Realms are a roaming band of adventurers bound to no kingdom. Sir Loin, Sir Lee, Lady Bugg, their squire Arla, and her chicken Gilda may not look like your typical dashing heroes, but they're firmly committed to fighting for good and also whatever is just interesting.

Created by Max Dweck and Noah Sterling, Knights of All Realms aspires to be an original all-ages animation series. The pilot episode can be found here.


Tropes Found in Knights of All Realms

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Patchface dips into this once Arla discovers his secret.
    Patchface: Patchface the Pirate, patron of putridness, privately a pretty boy!
  • Animal Stereotypes: Adverted by Gilda the Chicken. Rather than a coward, she is a fearless warrior.
  • Badass Beard: Sir Loin has a full beard and proves himself a capable swordsman in his duel with Patchface.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: Pirates value wickedness and ugliness and consider beauty and goodness to be weak. Patchface pines for the Pirate Hag, the ugliest woman on the high seas and is ashamed of his natural good looks, noting that his reputation would be ruined if any other pirates found out.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Sir Loin, traveling with a whale, crashes into the Seascum Pirate's ship to join the fight, unknowingly knocking out Patchface before he can kill Arla.

  • Black Swords Are Better: The Sick Sabre's blade is black because it's coated in centuries of filth and bacteria.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Sir Lee carries a hefty club on his back to fight with.
  • Chew-Out Fake-Out: A salesman flags down Sir Loin and starts complimenting him in his sales pitch. Sir Loin starts to loom over the man for trying to flatter him into buying something he doesn't need, only to admit that the pitch is working.
  • Close-Call Haircut: During their duel, Patchface makes a swing for Sir Loin's neck, but only manages to cut off part of his beard. Unfortunately, that was enough for the Sick Sabre to poison Sir Loin.
  • Death Glare: Gilda has a glare so vicious it can spontaneously light something on fire.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Sir Lee wears armor on his thighs, but his shins and feet are completely bare.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: Sir Lee keeps the visor of his helmet down, hiding his eyes.
  • Fat and Proud: Sir Loin gladly wears his mantle as "the One who is the Fat One" and also calls his heftiness his "magnificent girth".
  • Gonk: The Pirate Hag, as seen on her wanted poster, is the ugliest and most cruel woman on the seas. Patchface is completely smitten with her.
  • Green Around the Gills: Sir Loin's face turns green as he's poisoned by the Sick Sabre.
  • Green Thumb: Lady Bugg's magic can manipulate plant life. Her lance is made from reshaping leaves and she caused a massive arm to grow from a pirate ship's wooden railing.
  • Imagine Spot: Gilda briefly wonders what she'd look like with armor, picturing herself sitting on a throne and having a servant bring her worms in a bowl.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: After handing over the medicine for the Sick Sabre's illness, Patchface makes to stab Arla with a knife from behind.
  • Jousting Lance: Laddy Bugg fashions a jousting lance out of leaves as her weapon of choice.
  • Kill It with Fire: Sir Loin opts to destroy the Sick Sabre by planting it in a barrel lit on fire, watching as the centuries of filth and disease melt off the blade.
  • Knight Errant: The Knights of All Realms answer to no lord and freely wander to help anyone in need.
  • Love Bubbles: Arla and Gilda have bubbles and sparkles around them when they see Patchface's real face under his mask.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Arla carries a shield to fight with. She's strong enough with it that she can take full on strikes from a grown man while behind it.
  • Magic Knight: Lady Bugg is capable of magic, though also readily fights with a lance.
  • The Magnificent: The knightly trio have additional titles.
    • Sir Lee, the Irritable.
    • Lady Bugg, the Diminutive.
    • Sir Loin, the One who is the Fat One.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Patchface, captain of the Seascum Pirates, wears a patchwork mask over his face to loot and plunder in and hide his handsome face.
  • Noodle Incident: The pilot starts with the Knights in a market with a large sack of gold they got after apparently trading a dragon tooth to the Tooth Fairy.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Lady Bugg is a small fairy with antenna growing out of the top of her head and a set of clear lavender wings.
  • Poisoned Weapons: The legendary bandit Burdis the Butcher never properly cleaned his sword after every battle and instead would rub it with mud and garbage. Hundreds of years worth of bacteria now cling to the Sick Sabre, making any man violently or even fatally ill from the slightest touch of the blade.
  • Punny Name: The three knights have punny names when you use their titles and names together. Sir Lee, Lady Bugg, and Sir Loin.
  • Sizeshifter: Arla's shield can grow and shrink in size. When not using it for battle, Arla shrinks it down and clips it into her hair as an accessory.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Gender inverted by the band of knights. Three women, (Lady Bugg, Arla, and Gilda) and two men (Sir Lee and Sir Loin).
  • Villainous Valor: Even with their ship sinking, the Seascum Pirates refuse to abandon ship and fight the Knights to the last man.
  • "Wanted!" Poster: Patchface has the wanted poster of the Pirate Hag hung in his quarters for him to gaze longingly at. It lists her as being wanted for "every crime" and the reward for bringing her in is a royal title (With a message in parentheses saying she's really that bad.)
  • Wingding Eyes: Gilda gets hearts in her eyes when she sees Patchface's face.
  • Would Hurt a Child: None of the Seascum Pirates show any reservation in trying to kill Arla when the Knights attack their ship.
  • You Do NOT Want to Know: When Arla asks Lady Bugg what the Tooth Fairy does with the teeth she collects, Lady Bugg insists that Arla doesn't want to know because of how creepy it is.
  • You Got Spunk: Patchface admires Arla's fighting spirit and even offers to make her a cabin girl on his crew.
