"Adventure Dennis is a stunning juggernaut of righteous fury and he will persevere!"

Adventure Dennis Saves The Mayor is an obscure webcomic about a man, the titular Adventure Dennis, on a mission to save the kidnapped mayor. He finds a magic sword and progresses through ten "levels" in the style of an old-school Platform Game killing anything that opposes him, or even just happens to be standing in his way. The comic was drawn in MS Paint with much copying and pasting.

It can be found on the Book Of PDR, over here.

Adventure Dennis provides examples of:

  • All There in the Manual: The last section of the book is done in the style of an old game manual and reveals some facts about Dennis. (Unlike the story itself, which explains just about nothing)
  • Ax-Crazy: Or Magic Sword crazy, anyway. Dennis unhingedly loves cutting people down with it.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and Yeti: Adventure Dennis kills several types of yeti, including a pirate, a superhero, and a businessman.
  • Big Boo's Haunt: Level III is a haunted house.
  • Blood Is the New Black: Adventure Dennis occasionally becomes absolutely covered in blood, both his own and that of his enemies.
  • Clean Cut: This is generally not the case, but the cut through Shadow Dennis takes a moment to show.
  • Comically Invincible Hero: Adventure Dennis takes damage visibly sometimes, but it never seems to bother him and always goes away at the end of a level.
  • Continuity Nod: Another Book of PDR comic, Hover Head has an appearance by the Mayor from Adventure Dennis (and a mention of Demonsylvania in another story).
  • Cool Sword: Adventure Dennis's sword which was "created by Ancient Mages probably."
  • Determinator: Adventure Dennis will not stop. Ever.
  • Elevator Action Sequence: The first half of Level X takes place in an elevator.
  • Evil Twin: Shadow Dennis's origin is not explained, but he's basically just an Adventure Dennis on the other team.
  • Goddamned Bats: In-Universe example. Adventure Dennis is attacked by bats at least once per level.
  • Goomba Stomp: Dennis kills a ninja by landing on its head.
  • Green Hill Zone: The first level starts off on green ground, though no hills are seen.
  • High-Pressure Blood: While there is a lot of blood as Dennis goes on, only occasionally is it the high-pressure type.
