Go To
Dragalia Life is a webcomic by Cygames spoofing their own Action RPG, Dragalia Lost. The comic focuses on the day-to-day lives of the residents of the halidom.

As of March 2, 2023, it can no longer be accessed.

Dragalia Life contains examples of:

  • Acquired Poison Immunity: Dragalia Life #23 has Emile play sick to get out of training with Leif. Leif gives him a drink made of 200 blended plants, animals and fish that Emile drinks, only to get sick from it. Harle wonders if Leif was trying to poison the prince while Leif protests he had some that morning.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In strip 8, Ranzal makes a doghouse for Xander to mock the latter for demanding his own residence. Xander looks like he’s going to throw a fit, only to fully accept the doghouse as his own.
  • Blessed with Suck: Complete immunity to paralysis is typically useful, but in strip 236, Heinwald and Curran resent having it because it prevents them from feeling any effect from Albert’s “lightning massage.”
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": In Dragalia Life, the royal family will sometimes be shown in t-shirts with numbers matching their position in the family, i.e. Leonidas with a 1 shirt, Phares with a 2 and Euden with a 7.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Luca does this to Basileus in #400, since he believes Baselius has sympathetic motives but he still needs to be punished somehow, so he repeatedly bops Baselius in the face with his ears, but won't allow Basileus to pet them. Baselius actually considers this to be a fitting punishment. Michael, on the other hand, begs Luca to do it to him next.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Many strips focus on one of the many recruitable adventurers from Dragalia Lost. Often, the first few pages released after new adventurers are added to the game each focus on one of those adventurers.
  • Denied Food as Punishment: Played for laughs in Dragalia Life Comic #26 when Melsa figures out Ranzal and Luca have not only stolen two bread rolls, but have also stolen some other food. Elisanne says they don't get dinner that night.
  • Ear Ache:
    • #139 has Summer Luca get his ear get pinched by a hermit crab when he and Euden pick up shells to hear the ocean.
    • #347 has Luca get bitten in the ear by Daikokuten, who mistook it for seaweed.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The very first comic shows that this version of Euden is enamored with all things cute by showing that he hopes the windwyrm, who he at this point has only just set out to form a pact with, is the same kind of dragon as the baby dragons.
  • Expressive Shirt: #258 has Valyx's bear pauldrons become sad when a girl he gives his handkerchief calls him an old man...and he's 22!
  • I Meant to Do That: In strip 4, Zethia claims that she definitely planned to have use her ribbon to catch herself when she falls out of a tree. Euden calls her out on the line.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: When Ranzal calls her ice powers “surpr-ICE-ing,” Lily literally freezes up.
  • Lethal Chef: Any time Leif "cooks" anything, someone's gonna end up suffering for it.
    • #23 has him give Emile a health tonic made with a mix of 200 fish, plants and animals that Emile says tastes like mud. The next panel has the prince in bed.
    • #161 shows his "stew" is practically living evil and Patia eats ALL of it and makes it from scratch, which Euden is thankful for.
    • #247 shows that while Gala Leif may be quite the terror on the battlefield and also quite helpful around the Halidom with the chores... his cooking skills still have much to be desired as Luca finds out the hard way. It's so bad it's given a pixelized blur.
    • #285 shows he may know Leonidas's weakness is curry, but he should never be allowed to make it as it's enough to take down even the First Scion of Alberia.
  • The Narcissist: In strip 17, Emile convinces himself that the reason people don’t like him is because he’s too perfect and everyone else is jealous. His soldiers are incredulous.
  • Sequel Hook: With the game having reached the end, #468 ends up being an interview with the main cast. One of the questions asked is the possibility of a sequel.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: In #204, the uniforms for Team Justice consist of a frilly dress, puffy bloomers, and an oni mask.
  • Running Gag:
    • Any time Euden sees one of the baby dragons, he goes right into Cuteness Overload, fawning over the baby dragons like they're puppies or kittens.
    • Any time Euden hears about someone wanting to take part in Celliera's training, Buff Luca haunts his dreams.
    • Whenever Notte tries to fight, whatever move she shows off gets forbidden immediately afterwards.
  • Temporary Bulk Change:
    • Thanks to Celliera’s Training from Hell, Luca is incredibly muscular in strip 14. This turns out to be All Just a Dream of Euden’s, so he’s normal-sized before and afterwards.
    • Happens again in #103 when Euden hears about Cibella wanting to train with Celliera and getting the image of a bulky nun with muscles to crush iron, with Buff Luca behind her to boot.
    • Happens yet again in #347 when Luca gets buff after being bitten in the ear by Daikokuten.
    • Sorta happens in #431 when Ezelith and Melody practice giving Valentine's chocolates a bit too much, and they end up each with a muscular arm that looks comically out of proportion with the rest of their bodies.
  • There Was a Door: Leonidas gets indignant when Ilia and Mordecai use his window instead of the door in #413. They use it to enter and leave,
  • Yonkoma: Though strips have five panels instead of four, they otherwise follow the yonkoma format, with regularly-sized panels arranged vertically and at least one punchline in the last panel of every strip.
