All Lone Ones is a Webseries by Lynnzl. It follows an older wolf named One-eye in his struggles to take care of a younger wolf while being pursued by a group of animals, semi-led by his arch-enemy, Silkey.


’’All Lone Ones’’ contains the following tropes:

  • Abusive Parents: Before he let go of his past and cared for her, One-eye used to neglect or scream Lynn a lot.
    • Also, One-eye's father, Blaze, who has been revealed to neglect his son because of his deformities.
  • Action Girl: Pretty much all female characters at least try to fight.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Some characters that used to have a small role, got a bigger role in the series.

    • There are a few short stories, one of which focuses on One-eye's mother.
  • Adult Fear: Pretty much all parents or foster parents in this are worried about losing their children.
  • Aerith and Bob: Names like One-eye alongside Selang, Lynn and Silkey.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: One-eye being left out by everyone due to his hump.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Shiba, Tora, quite a few background characters.
  • Almost Dead Guy: Norder staying alive just long enough to tell One-eye that he has a daughter, which is crucial to the plot.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: One-eye has only one eye.
  • Furries Are Easier to Draw: They're anthropomorphic animals after all.
  • Angry Guard Dog: Dexter.
  • All There in the Manual: A lot of background information as to the world of ALO, the characters or trivia has been revealed on Lynnzls deviantART and the All Lone Ones Wikia.
  • Animals Lack Attributes: In the early episodes
      Advertisement:
    • Subverted in the later episodes and the spinoff, where the females have teats and the males have sheaths and balls.
  • Animal Talk: All animals seem to be capable of speech. (except Tora, who is mute).
  • Animesque: Some over-exaggerated emotions and fur tufts, sometimes even hair, on the animal's heads.
  • Anti-Hero: One-eye
  • Anyone Can Die: From young pups to old wolves.
    • Thought it didn't end up happening, one of the main characters was originally going to die.
    • Abbie.
  • Art Evolution: Episode one had a very wonky and inconsistent style, while it slowly got better in later episodes.
    • Episode three was re-animated partially later on in the series because of some continuity issues. The style changes really show here.
  • Art Shift: Happened a lot in episode 1, where it shifted from a very cartoonish style to a style with a bit more realism, only to return back to the cartoonish style a minute later.
  • Artistic License – Biology:
    • The animals are a bit anatomically incorrect. The most significant detail is their legs being pretty broad and the claws being huge. This, however, is an artistic choice.

    • The animals use their paws as hands on multiple occasions.

  • Hollywood Genetics: The creator prefers to let each pup inherit a bit of each parent (such as One-eye being gray like his father but having some of his markings from his mother), instead of letting each youngling be an exact copy of one of the parent.

  • Parental Abandonment
    • It's been revealed that Sheba, Lynn's mother abandoned Lynn, the at that time weakest pup, to take the stronger ones to a safe nurturing spot. She abandoned Lynn as she was afraid the pup wouldn't make the journey alive.
  • Plot Hole: Not really explaining what the Dark Guardians are.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Rufus, whose first design was black with a few red markings. The creator later didn't like the design because it stood out too much, so changed it to dark reddish brown with paler reddish markings. Ironically, though both designs are pretty evil-looking, Rufus is a very nice guy and, while he could be seen as a villain to some, he just really wants luck for all.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Situations or people Lynnzl has encountered have influenced the series mildly.
  • Retcon: Character designs have a tendency to change, mostly due to the character's owners changing up their design. For example, Abbie's ear markings changed. So did Onyx's eyecolor.

    • Arrow before taking out One-eye's eye

    • Lynn gets her ears cut in the first episode. By the time she's a teenager, she's also lost her eye.
    • Abbie's ear gets thorn in episode 6.
    • Strike in episode 5 gets a big cut on the left side of her neck. It's revealed that it won't heal.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Lynn in the epilogue.
  • Shrinking Violet: One-eye before he turned into a ruthless monster.
  • Shout-Out: Majority of the side characters were friends of the creator, and put in the series as shoutout.
    • There are also references (some subtle, others not so much) to other inspirational sources.
  • Sliding Scaleof Anthropomorphism: Some animals are portrayed more realistically, such as cows, while most main characters seem to be more anthropomorphized, possibly to communicate more with the viewer.
  • Sliding Scale of Animal Cast: Type 2.

  • The Bully: Maud and Diggs.
  • The Dragon: Silkey.
  • The Quiet One: Richard.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Subverted, and more or less reversed. Of all major characters (One-eye, Silkey, Lynn, Abbie, Shiba and Strike), One-eye is the only male (and a castrated one at that).
  • The Speechless: Tora.
  • The Stinger: At times after the credits
  • Transformation Sequence: One-eye going from an innocent pup to a bloodthirsty murderer during the flashback in the third episode.

    • The entirity of episode 1 is a flashback to Lynn's
  • Two Girls and a Guy: The series protagonists are One-eye, Silkey and Lynn.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Norder dies before we get to know him, having only a few lines of dialogue and no real personality shown.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Happens quite a lot, since our main character has been an assassin all his life and was raised pretty much without morals. Even after he became a "nice" guy, he's still shown to often have anger attacks, be very violent and a racist towards dogs and cats..
  • What Have I Become?: One-eye who sees in how stupid he has been all his life after he takes Norder's life and realized he orphaned a child.
  • Whole Episode Flashback: Episode 3
    • Technically, episode 1 is also one, even though it seems more like a prologue at the first sight. It's been revealed that episode 2 was actually supposed to be the first episode, with characters referring to the events that happened earlier though dialogue only. However, this would end up being pretty confusing since a lot happened in the first episode.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Shiba and Tora.
  • You Monster!: One of the main insults One-eye got in his childhood for being deformed. In an earlier draft of the series, where Lynn was going to find out that he was the one who killed her father, she would run off calling him this.
