"That's it! If brute force won't work... I'll use more of it!"
Mirabelle, Brutus: A Shoujo Webcomic

Brutus is a shoujo manga-style comedy chronicling the adventures of Mirabelle Moondrop, a half-unicorn half-elf half-human princess as she battles evil. Sort of.

This comic provides examples of:

  • Anime Hair: In many bizarre forms, especially early on.
  • Animesque
  • Anyone Can Die: Brutus, the title character, dies.
  • Advertisement:
  • Art Evolution: Mutates rapidly until about Chapter 4.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Mirabelle (beauty), Narcissa (brains), and Juno (brawn).
  • Big Bad Ensemble: The shadowy figure from the end of Chapter 1, Prince Cassius, and possibly Narcissa's sister.
  • Butt-Monkey: Alucanth. Despite doing nothing to deserve it, he's regularly ignored, attacked, and has his Dark and Troubled Past dredged up.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Alucanth.
  • Elite Four: The shadowy figure's Four Warriors, who are also a Four-Element Ensemble.
  • Evil All Along: Prince Cassius.
  • Face Stealer: Italia takes on Alucanth's form by stabbing him.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Headmaster-Principal Dean President (first name Dean, last name President).
  • Meaningful Name: Quisler Wormsley is exactly as slimy as he sounds.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Brutus has four arms; this is not explained in the least.

  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Alucanth is a "vampire werewolf reincarnated ghost dullahan sidhe youkai nosferatu werebear dhampir."
  • No Name Given: The psychic contestant from the speed eating contest. He reappears later, still with no name.
  • Psychic Powers: One of the contestants from the speed eating contest is telepathic and can teleport.
  • Refusal of the Call: Juno hears ominous voices in her head telling her the "Caesars have to be stopped"... and completely ignores them.
  • Royal Brat: Mirabelle. She appears honestly confused by the idea that something she did could be wrong.
  • The Chosen One: Mirabelle is told that only she can defeat the Caesars.
  • The Prophecy: Alucanth is doomed to battle his own father.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Mirabelle's two friends, Juno (tomboy) and Narcissa (girly).
