A webcomic inspired by SNES era RPGs and multimedia sequential art forms like Homestuck, Blitzcrafter is about a young hero who's transported centuries into the future after defeating a dragon. Hikaru, the hero in question, is a Blitzcrafter, a blacksmith embed with magical powers. Upon awakening in the future, Hikaru discovers that a bustling city has sprung up from the grassy planes they remember, weapons have been outlawed and soldiers patrol the streets. In addition, the magic known as Blitz has completely left the world, and Hikaru is the only one who can use it.

Blitzcrafter provides examples of:
- Faceless Goons: The soldiers that litter the city wear full face helmets.
- Fangirl: Meredith mentions writing lesbian incest fanfiction. For what, we're not sure. See also, Yuri Fan.
- Heroic Mime: In the vein of characters like Link and Chrono, Hikaru appears to be completely mute, although Meredith seems to understand them just fine.
- Medium Blending: The comic features animations and flash.
- Mook: The soldiers seem to exist only for two reasons: To look menacing and betray the shiny outside of the city, and to be mowed down in mass by Hikaru.
- Floating Limbs: In sprite mode, every character has these, along with a floating head.
- Shonen Hair: Hikaru's hair consists of three to four back spikes that are sometimes drawn as big as their face, three frontal spikes, and a spiky ponytail.
- Super-Deformed: Occasionally, the comic will cut to a stylized image of the scene, featuring all characters as super deformed Rayman-esque sprites. This appears to be a nod to games where the spritework is in this style, while the cutscenes feature much better graphics.
- Yuri Fan: As mentioned above, Meredith.
