The start of a journey now on printed paper.
Furry Fight Chronicles is a furry webcomic created by DaiGaijin, also known as KageMusha, about female pro-wrestling. The story revolves around Combagals, female wrestling icons, and their attempts to succeed. The protagonist is Muko, a perverted female rabbit who decides to become a Combagal after watching her first female pro-wrestling match. However, unwilling to go to a school for two years, Muko decides to hire a squirrel manager named Cookie, who guarantees her that she'll have her debut match in a tag team with an experienced partner. The comic follows Muko as she realizes that being a Combagal is harder than she thought it was going to be.

The comic can be read on DeviantArt, FurAffinity, and InkBunny. For readers who support the author on Patreon, they can read one or two chapters ahead of time. The webcomic can also be bought as printed volumes. So far, three volumes have been published.


Tropes include:

  • 0% Approval Rating: Cookie, due to her past misdeeds as a manager is rather infamous in the pro-wrestling world. Due to an incident two years before the story, she is despised by mostly everybody and on the verge of being broke if not for Muko hiring her out of laziness to avoid going to Combagal school for two years.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: Adelgund is universally loved. She is a champion, has a team of assistants, and the crowd loves her. Painfully subverted when Peki reveals their history in front of the audience, where Peki's status as the Wild was used by their manager, Dinedon, as publicity stunt for their battles. Adelgund played along, never inquiring about Peki's feelings on the matter...and was then caught cheating on Peki with one of the groupies. Adelgund's reputation then took a spectacular nosedive when she mercilessly broke Peki's arm in front of everyone.

  • 10-Minute Retirement: Muko quits furry fighting after the events of Chapter 18. Chapter 19 focuses on Cookie snapping her out of it by telling her a story about her past. She succeeds.
  • The '90s: The story takes place in the year of 1997. And most of the background incidents still took place in the 1990s, such as incidents related to the furry fighting community.
  • Accidental Pervert: Happens in Chapter 19 when Cookie enters Muko's room to cheer her up and finds her masturbating. Both are obviously embarrassed, blushing, and Muko kicks her out.
  • Action Fashionista: Combagals like wearing more than one fighting outfit when doing different matches. That being said, some have an Iconic Outfit that defines them across their career.
  • Action Girl: The story is about female pro-wrestling.
  • Action Prologue: The first chapter of the comic is not about Muko but about Fenny and Roora having a furry fight, which inspires Muko to become a Combagal.
  • Advertisement:
  • Advertised Extra: Fenny and Roora, despite being the main focus of the first chapter, only serve to inspire Muko to become a Combagal. They only reappear in cameos, extras, or non-canon comics.
  • The Alcoholic: Some characters drink a lot. However, the comic likes to show the realistic outcome to what happens when one becomes an alcoholic or chooses DrowningMySorrows as an outlet for their troubles. They're not pretty.
    • Cookie became one in Chapter 19 after Trilamity Day. Between causing Freydar to be crippled, losing customers, and selling all of her Fortune Gals to Shun Gonfano, she resorted to drinking to deal with it. She ended up meeting Shun and her former Combagals in Club Nighthawk, where she made a scene and lost what little respect her Combagals had left for her.
    • Zebreastian had trouble being a host due to getting many marriage proposals. He started drinking to deal with the stress. However, between the alcoholism and the accumulated stress, Zebreastian vomited blood, which acted as a wake up call to change jobs. He works at Monyan under less demanding conditions.
  • All There in the Manual: There are some Extras and Atelier drawings that gives concept informations regarding the characters, such as their background, their techniques, and even their hobbies.
  • Amazon Brigade: The Cyclone Crushers are this.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Some Combagals manage to combine style and function by being tall, strong, and beautiful.
    • Roora is buffer than Fenny, but no less beautiful because of it.
    • Nyarai is the most feminine looking of the four protagonists thanks to her hostess job, but her outfits show that she's got a six pack and well-toned limbs, especially the legs which are drawn more muscular when she's about to fight.
    • Patchwork is tall, muscular, and pretty...which is one of the reasons Muko gets a crush on her.
  • Ambition Is Evil: This was a Fatal Flaw of Cookie back when she was Fortune Cookie two years before the comic started. She originally became a Combagal to help Combagals achieve their dreams of becoming Champions since Cookie couldn't become one because of her height. After becoming a successful manager, Cookie forgot her dreams and principles, caring only about profit until one Combagal under her care got injured because of her neglect. Her failure made her realize her mistake, at the cost of her Combagals, her career, and her self-esteem.
  • Anachronism Stew: While the story takes place during The '90s it doesn't stop it from having inventions that came out decades later.
    • Muko plays video games with motion controls in the early chapters in an attempt to learn furry fighting. Such control systems didn't come up until the middle 2000s.
    • Social platforms like the Spotter play a part in celebrity life, which started to become influential on the 2010s.
  • Animesque: While it's read like a comic, the art style and the setting is similar to a manga in terms of design.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Weaponized in some matches. Roora delivers some painful slaps to Fenny's breasts to damage her.
  • Art Evolution: The art is great in Part 1, but it becomes more elegant in Part 2 and the change becomes more noticeable in Part 3.
  • Art Shift: Played for Laughs when the characters have reactions to some hilarious circumstances.
  • Ascended Extra: Roora and Fenny, whose only major appearance in the main comic was their fight in chapter one, are main characters in the spinoff, Space Muko.
  • Ascended to Carnivorism: Muko as a bunny should be a herbivore. That being said, she's very happy to eat meat. She eats burgers and yakiniku with great delight. Cookie, while not being a Big Eater like Muko, is willing to eat barbecue despite squirrels not being carnivores.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Becoming a champion Combagal requires one to defeat the previous one in battle. Nyarai accomplishes this by dominating Adelgund in Chapter 17, being crowned as the Masato champion in the next chapter.
    • This also applies to the Roda Kira Gang. Debbie was the original leader, but she was replaced by Gantus when he bested in a race so brutal she crashed. Kalita's conversation with Debbie in Chapter 27, besides talking about the incident is also about teaming up to defeat him.
  • Attempted Rape: In Monyan soapland, two customers attempted to rape a couple of workers there. Fortunately, Skully, who was managed by Cookie at the time arrived and gave them the beating they deserved. Their photos were taken and put in a wall of shame so as to never get service. To this day, the Monyan staff is grateful to Cookie and Skully for their help. They have a giant billboard of Skully to promote her disco products and they let Cookie have her Combagal office as payment for her help.
  • Audience Surrogate: Muko works like this in the first chapters as she's attracted to furry fighting because of the attractive girls but later appreciates it for the action and story behind the fights.
  • Ax-Crazy: Nyarai is the most violent of the four protagonists as she demonstrates with her Combat Sadomasochist fighting style in Part 2. Her Kick the Dog moments with Mellow imply that she's dying to kick his face in until he amused her enough to acknowledge him.
  • Badass Biker: Kalita is this and so are the other members of the Roda Kira Gang by default.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Shun Gonfano doesn't fight, but he's the manager of the Cyclone Crushers, a Yakuza by name due to being a sumiguza, and he has enough Nerves of Steel to not be afraid of an unstable Freydar.
  • Badass Longcoat: Kalita and the other two founding members of the Roda Kira Gang (Debbie and Leyline) wore white jackets with kanji that spelled out a virtue. In Kalita's jacket was the word respect.
  • Badass Teacher What makes the Cyclone Crushers so dangerous is not just their fighting skills but their trainer. Their trainer is Freydar, Cookie's best Combagal and the only Combagal with the potential of defeating Donkizari. With her training methods, Skully and Bolouma, her former Fortune Gals became the Tendonchi Champions in the span of a year. For extra badass points, she's still training and is stronger than she was back when she fought for Cookie's side.
  • Bad Boss: Dinedon is responsible for the fall of Team Executor as he helped Shun Gonfano hijack the match. He also forced Peki to become a Jobber and a Heel by fighting Adelgund for the sake of increasing sales, not caring about Peki's feelings or the impact it would have on her popularity.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Part 2 ends with Nyarai betraying Muko and Cookie and becoming the Masato champion, with Peki and Adelgund getting hospitalized in the process. Shun managed to get Cookie's reputation further damaged. And Muko was traumatized enough to undergo retirement. Downplayed, as Saniko forces Cookie to snap Muko out of her Heroic BSoD and this gets them to try furry fighting again.
  • Badly Battered Babysitter: Mellow works as a babysitter for five babies in Chapter 33 and is obviously not having fun doing so.
  • Bait-and-Switch: The first chapter makes it seem like Fenny is the protagonist of the story since it focus on her victory against Roora. In reality, it's an Action Prologue to inspire Muko to become a Combagal.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Zig-zagged as some animals are shown wearing shoes and other don't based on preference or physiology.
    • Barefoot preference is more common for characters with more animalistic physiology than others. While Cookie and Nyarai are the only barefooters among the four protagonists, Cookie has digitigrade paws that make it hard to find shoes for her whereas Nyarai has humanoid feet with paw pads similar to Muko and Kalita, not wearing shoes out of choice or preference.
    • Avian and arboreal animals like reptiles also have trouble wearing shoes. Most of them are barefoot or choose to wear straps. The only exception was Peki wearing snow boots in a flashback.
  • Bare Your Midriff:
  • Bat Out of Hell: Skully, one of the Cyclone Crushers, is a bat and one half of the Tendonchi Champions.
  • Batter Up!: Kalita and one of her underlings use a bat when doing illegal activities.
  • Bathing Beauty: The girls who work at the Monyan soapland are beautiful and dressed in towels.
  • Battle Amongst the Flames: Chapter 28 has one with Kalita and the Roda Kira Gang when she sees them terrorizing homeless people. It's even illustrated as the cover for Volume 3.
  • Battle Aura: Nyarai gets one when she's about to use her Leg Jet Burst for the first time.
    • Parodied with Muko after getting her Heroic Second Wind in her rematch with Kalita. It ends up being visual effects as Muko doesn't get stronger, or at least strong enough to fight Kalita, who just uses her strongest punch to knock her out.
  • Battle in the Rain: One of them happens in Chapter 28. Downplayed, as Gantus already bested Kalita and broke her spirit, who chooses to run away from him shortly after it starts raining.
  • Battle Strip: Nyarai and Peki perform this at the end of their fight to symbolize their betrayal of their respective teams for the creation of Team Firestorm.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Most positive relationships in the comic started because someone showed a character kindness, respect, or friendship during a low time of their life.
    • Muko's Undying Loyalty to Cookie is because she's the first adult who ever believed in her potential.
    • Adelgund's love for Peki begun when she believed that she could be a great Combagal despite her masculine looks and taught her how to control her strength.
    • Kalita has a devoted mindset to the Roda Kira Gang because they gave her a family and purpose when she met Debbie and Leyline.
  • Berserk Button: Nyarai has many, but she doesn't like Fantastic Racism towards Wilds, nor trying to exploit that to get something out of it. She literally kicked a hippo out of a room for the former and stomped Cookie when she assumed her of doing the latter.
  • The Bet:
    • Cookie makes a bet with Manugo, Muko's former boss at Cafe Carrots in Chapter 3. If Muko earns more sales than his maids, they get the sales money for the whole week. But if the maids win, Muko has to work for free for a month.
    • A bigger bet is made on Chapter 31 by Freydar of all people. She challenges Muko and Kalita to a two-on-one fight. If they win, they can skip the Tendonchi Challenges and fight Skully and Bolouma. If they lose, they and Cookie have to leave town. Shun convinces her to change the terms since Freydar still has a Game-Breaking Injury so she has them fight a two-on-two fight with Combagals she will personally train with the bet conditions being the same. Cookie wisely chooses not to take the challenge, anticipating that Freydar's Combagals may be stronger than Skully and Bolouma.
  • Beware of Vicious Dog:
    • Gantus is the second leader of the Roda Kira Gang and acts as The Dreaded to Kalita. He is a large dog who corrupted the gang, beat Debbie in a biking race (and is implied that he hospitalized her by causing her crash), and he's stronger than Kalita.
    • Freydar was the only Combagal with the potential of defeating Donkizari. When she finally appears in Chapter 29, she shows that she's tall, muscular, and angry.
  • Big Eater: Muko can eat a lot and she even tried to exploit this by becoming a competitive eater.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Saniko may not always agree with Muko, but she still loves her younger sister and is protective of her. In Chapter 19, she convinces Cookie to talk with Muko after her Heroic BSoD by blackmailing Cookie, pointing out that she made her fight against two superior opponents who beat her up. Cookie complies and ends up snapping Muko out of her depression after a heart to heart. Zebreastian also remembers her sporting a Death Glare when he remembers her asking for Cookie, showing how angry she was at the squirrel for getting her sister hurt.
  • Big Sister Mentor: Debbie, the original leader and one of the three founders of the Roda Kira Gang was this to Kalita before an injury forced a temporary retirement. She tries to be this again when they meet one year later, but they leave on bad terms due to Debbie becoming a Retired Badass to start a family.
  • Biker Babe: Kalita and Debbie as well when she was a member of the Roda Kira Gang.
  • Bishōnen: Zebreastian, the receptionist of Monyan is a very attractive zebra stallion. He's even referred as handsome zebra man by the comic. An additional comic page in Chapter 25 reveals he worked as a host, but he had to give up after the stress of too many marriage proposals.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Part 2 ends with Nyarai betraying Cookie and Muko for Shun Gonfano and becoming the new champion. Cookie's reputation is further damaged and Muko is traumatized. However,thanks to Saniko forcing them to talk, Muko and Cookie reconcile and try again. Furthermore, Part 2 ends with Kalita returning with the implication that she will become Muko's partner in Part 3.
  • Blinded by Rage:
    • Kalita goes in a berserker rage after Muko keeps embarrassing her to see her breasts rather than fight her seriously. She gives Muko a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown that destroys Cafe Carrots, which makes their protection money scheme useless when the place is destroyed.
    • This goes two-fold for Team Executor in Chapter 16. Peki, after years of infidelity and neglect by Adelgund betrays her and subjects her to a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown in revenge for all of the suffering she endured. She forgot that Adelgund had Super Strength because of her size that she gives her a chance to break her arm, losing the fight. Adelgund, angry at Peki for betraying her, despite having justified reasons, breaks both of her legs, destroying her reputation in the process.
  • Bling of War: Nyarai has a fondness for gold, silver, and gems. They make a part of her outfit when she's onscreen. She even wears them when fighting.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Cookie's official manager outfit in the Arc 1 cover has her wearing a blue coat. She's also one of the four protagonists and a Parental Substitute to Muko.
  • Bodyguard Babes: The Exe-Cutie-Ves act as Adelgund's personal cheering squad, but they're also bodyguards who protect Adelgund while she fights on the ring. That being said, their fighting level is not up to the standards of a Combagal, much less the Cyclone Crushers.
  • Boobs of Steel: Kalita had the largest bust of the Roda Kira Gang and was the strongest member before Gantus arrived.
    • Jowdie is the nicest member of the Cyclone Crushers and the one with the largest breasts, doesn't change the fact that she's an elite Combagal by virtue of being a member.
  • Book Dumb: Muko didn't graduate from high school and anything she learned from furry fighting she did from magazine posters.
  • Boxing Battler: Peki. Her fighting name is "Punching Peki"
  • Brawler Lock: Happens a couple of times during even fights.
  • Brawn Hilda: Adelgund is this, much to Muko's disgust as she wanted her first furry fight to be with someone attractive.
  • Break the Cutie: Muko gets this on her debut match after Nyarai betrays her and Cookie and then gives her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech and a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown in front of the audience that leaves her in tears until Adelgund tags her in. This leads to...
  • Break the Haughty: Nyarai getting this after being an arrogant bitch before and during the match, she receives her comeuppance when Adelgund takes her out with a single knee to the snout. Nyarai has to leave the ring with a broken snout, blood pouring out of her nose, with a face that shows total fear and vulnerability as she has to tag Peki in. To add insult to injury, Shun doesn't care when she passes out despite everything she did for his plans.
  • Breast Attack: This is a common tactic when the fights get brutal. Roora does this to Fenny many times in Chapter 1. Nyarai does this to Muko in Chapter 14, and Sleepy and Snuggly do this to each other in Chapter 20.
  • Briefcase Full of Money: Shun got Dinedon to betray Team Executor by paying him with one of these. He also bought the Cyclone Crushers from Cookie this way two years ago.
  • Broken Pedestal: Cookie is this to the Cyclone Crushers for causing Freydar to get a Career-Ending Injury and selling them to Shun Gonfano.
  • Brutal Honesty: If Muko has a negative opinion of you, she won't hesitate to point it out to you. This trait is usually Played for Laughs such as when telling her friend Mellow she's not interested in him.
  • The Bully: To Kalita's dismay, this is what the Roda Kira Gang became as they terrorize the weak. Ironically, she used to be a school bully herself. Gantus mocking Kalita and labeling her as a bully because she only fought opponents weaker than her and she got scared when fighting him because he was stronger than her caused her to run away at being seen not as a warrior but as a coward who pushed down those weaker than her. Ironically, the speech reflects Gantus himself more than Kalita.
  • Butt-Monkey: Muko goes through a lot of comedic indignities across the comic, most of them self-inflicted by her immaturity and stupidity.
  • Call-Back: Many elements of previous chapters get referenced in previous chapters for the sake of the storyline.
    • Cookie dressing up Muko for her fight with Kalita in Chapter 5 is done again in Chapter 22 when Muko is ready to finish her rematch with her.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Starting from the Masato fight, Combagals start shouting the names of their techniques upon using them.
  • Career-Ending Injury: This is what actually happened in Trilamity Day to Freydar. Due to overworking, Freydar developed a painkiller addiction that was going to get her blind after she got injured in her last fight.
    • As it turns out: it was a Game-Breaking Injury and Freydar can still fight, being stronger than before despite the handicap.
  • Casino Episode: Chapter 29 can be summarized as this when Kalita tries to reverse engineer Cookie's status as The Jinx to get easy money to pay her debt. Hilarity Ensues when she uses another loan to get the chips meaning that she's betting Cookie's money and risking the chance of doubling her bet.
  • Catchphrase: Expect to hear this from Cookie when her height is brought up.
    "For a squirrel, I'm tall!"
  • Cats Are Mean: Nyarai, being a cheetah, fits this trope due to being physically and verbally violent, with a short temper and nasty attitude to boot.
  • Caught with Your Pants Down: Hilariously enough, Cookie finds a depressed Muko masturbating while visiting her in Chapter 19, much to their embarrassment.
  • Central Theme: The comic has a few recurring themes across the chapters that keep reappearing and play a role in the plot and the characters:
    • First, there is the importance of achieving your dreams. It's never easy, sometimes they are impossible, but it's the journey, and being able to make them live on that matters.
    • There is also a recurring theme of Forgiveness and Revenge as Muko and Cookie struggle with the Cyclone Crushers. Cookie made mistakes, but the start of her Redemption Quest begins when Muko becomes the first person who forgave her for Trilamity Day and her failures as a manager.
  • Chairman of the Brawl: As implied by Scalitor and Donkizari, smacking your opponent with a chair is a popular Heel tactic.
  • Character Development: Muko starts wanting to become a true Combagal after her first furry fight by the end of Part 2. Starting on Part 3, while she's still optimistic, she's more mature and more willing to recognize her flaws.
  • Character Focus: Each part of Act 1 is focused on one of the protagonists. Part 1 focuses on Muko, Part 2 focuses on Nyarai, and Part 3 is focusing on Kalita.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Implied. Muko is described as having no training in sports or fighting. Assuming the average Combagal was like Muko before their two years in Combagal school, then those two years of training gave them a Megaton Punch levels of strength and Made of Iron levels of stamina.
  • Cheery Pink: Subverted...Muko's furry fighting outfit for her first match is pink and she would fit this trope under normal circumstances. However, because she's nervous about her first match, is fighting a Brawn Hilda for her first opponent rather than an attractive girl, and many other complications that come out...she doesn't get to enjoy the match.
  • The Chew Toy: Like Muko, Cookie faces many indignities. However, most of them are caused by her unusually high bad luck and her reactions and attempts to surpass them make her hilarious to watch.
    • Despite not being cursed like Cookie, Mellow is a likable guy who gets ignored by his crush, works many jobs just to visit Club Nighthawk once, and faces many indignities just talking with Nyarai.
  • Children Raise You: Bill Bunburger, the father of Muko and Saniko, needs his oldest daughter to take care of him and work in his place while he recovers from some sort of depression.
  • Choke Holds: They are used as a Finishing Move in matches.
  • Cleavage Window: Muko's maid outfit in Chapter 3 has one as lampshaded by Cookie.
  • Closet Sublet: Cookie's office is the janitor's room of a soapland. It's also her living arrangements. As of Chapter 19, this is also Muko's home until she gets an apartment.
  • Combat Commentator: Every furry fighting stadium has one or two commentators narrating the match. Each stadium has different commentators with their own narrating style.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Combagals are not afraid to fight dirty if the situation demands it. Attacks to the groin, to the breasts, and other tactics are encouraged.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: Nyarai shows signs of this in Chapter 17 as she is more than happy to get hurt as long as she gets the chance of hurting her opponent back afterwards.
  • Comic Trio: The Tendonchi Masters, as a whole are the highest authority of Tendonchi, as their challenges determine which Combagal team will fight the Tendonchi Champions. That being said, each is a Bunny-Ears Lawyer that makes interaction with the other two end in squabbling. Their recap show in Chapter 31 ends with the audience laughing at them more than learning about the previous challenges.
  • Coming-of-Age Story: The story starts with Muko starting furry fighting for perverted desires. However, it acknowledges that she has a complicated home life and has no idea what to do with her life. After Character Development kicks in, Muko strives to be a Combagal for mature reasons and prove herself to be an adult.
    • Part 3 shows that Kalita also struggles with this. Due to having trouble with the Roda Kira Gang, the biker gang she created, Kalita is struggling with what to do with her life and moving on. She's unsatisfied with her present as a student, can't make peace with her past, and is uncertain about her future. Her Character Focus in Part 3 involves her figuring things out to see what she wants to do with her life.
  • Continuity Porn: The comic has a strong focus on continuity. Names that were mentioned in one chapter will surface again later. Events that take place in one chapter will play part at some point in the future as well.
  • Contortionist: Fenny manages to wrap her legs around Roora's neck despite her opponent being heavier and sitting on top of her, bending her spine and legs to pull the hold.
  • Contrast Montage: Chapter 26 shows the daily lives of Muko and Kalita and how both protagonists differ in their personalities, way of life, and current situations.
  • Cool Big Sis: Saniko, Muko's older sister, tries to be this to Muko by working and trying to look out for her younger sister's happiness.
    • Kalita is the oldest girl in the girl dorms. She always wakes up early to cook breakfast for the younger girls before school.
    • Jowdie acts like one to Nyarai, albeit with mixed success, by giving her advice on how to be a better hostess and even buying her the tacky gem phone she owns. While Nyarai can be annoyed with Jowdie, her interactions imply that she considers the cow her Best Friend among the hostesses of Club Nighthawk.
  • Cool Mask: Muko wears a black mask as part of her Masked Luchador attire in the cover. She sees the mask for the first time in Chapter 30.
  • The Corrupter: Gantus is the one responsible for the Roda Kira Gang doing the shakedowns in Part 1. According to Kalita, the Roda Kira Gang was more noble and idealistic back when Debbie was the leader.
  • Cosplay Café: Muko used to work at one named Cafe Carrots. Most of the plot of Part 1 takes place there since Muko first has to win The Bet with the staff to earn money for Cookie and then ends up fighting Kalita there.
  • Costume Porn: Combagals have great fashion sense when fighting. Additionally, outside of furry fighting, the protagonists and recurring characters are shown having a variety of different attires in different chapters.
  • "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: As lampshaded by Nyarai in Chapter 14, Cookie could have prevented the Masato fight had she bothered to do a background check on her. Had she done so, Cookie would have realized the connection between Nyarai and Shun and prevented Muko from being traumatized.
  • Cue the Rain: Going hand in hand with Battle in the Rain above, it starts raining in Chapter 28, when Kalita realizes that she's outmatched by Gantus.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: Besides being a biker, Kalita is a great student. She can lead a double life perfectly, gets grades high enough to be accepted to a good university, and Chapter 29 has her pulling out a gambit in a casino with Muko and Cookie to test Cookie's bad luck, see if they can exploit it to pay her debt, and determine from there if she's going to become a Combagal from there.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Muko's fight with Kalita is a one sided defeat for her as it shows what happens when someone fights an opponent with lots of fighting experience.
  • Dance Battler: Implied with Snuggly and Sleepy as Paipu Katto trained them in dancing as much as he did in furry fighting.
  • Dark Action Girl: Heel Combagals invoke this when fighting.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Some of the Combagals, including the protagonists have them.
  • David Versus Goliath: There are no weight categories in furry fighting, so there will be matches where Combagals will fight opponents who are larger or smaller than them.
    • The Action Prologue has Roora as the Goliath and Fenny as the David. Roora has a Simple, yet Awesome fighting style that uses her brute strength to overwhelm Fenny. Meanwhile, Fenny uses a Weak, but Skilled approach with a side of Combat Pragmatist by using superior technique and attacking when her opponent lowers her guard. Fenny wins by making a comeback victory.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • Nyarai is the main focus on Chapter 6, the last chapter of Part 1 due to the first five chapters being focused on Muko, Cookie, and Kalita. It shows her job as a waitress and her connection with Shun Gonfano and the Cyclone Crushers. Fittingly enough, she gets Character Focus on Part 2, starting on Chapter 7.
    • Chapter 15 and Chapter 16 are this to Team Executor, with the former being an Origins Episode and the latter showing their fight and relationship end with Adelgund breaking Peki's limbs.
  • Deal with the Devil: This is what Cookie considers a deal or partnership with Shun Gonfano to be like. Justified as he's the equivalent of a Yakuza in the comic.
  • Decoy Protagonist: The first chapter makes it seem as if Fenny would be the protagonist of the story or a mentor figure to Muko. In reality, her purpose was just to inspire Muko to take furry fighting by showing how one match looks like.
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: Nyarai does this to Adelgund, who was an unbeatable champion because of her size, strength, and skill in Chapter 18.
    • As of Chapter 24, Cookie and Muko invoke this by aiming to defeat Donkizari. It is implied that most Combagals want to do this to become the Continental Champion.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Muko and Cookie suffer this after the Masato match. Muko is traumatized by her weakness at fighting Nyarai and inability to save Adelgund from her that she quits furry fighting. Likewise, Cookie enters a similar depression as with Nyarai betraying her and Muko leaving her, she had nobody willing to hire her now that her reputation was ruined. They both snap out of it on Chapter 19 after talking things through.
  • Destructive Savior: Deconstructed. Muko loses to Kalita, but her determination impresses her enough to not steal from Cafe Carrots. That being said, the fight destroyed the store so Cookie has to pay for the damages Muko made, putting her in bigger debt. Muko also has to go to the hospital too.
  • Didn't Think This Through: This is Cookie's main Fatal Flaw when making decisions, such as allowing Muko to fight Kalita in Chapter 5 despite the skill difference because she let her excitement get the better of her.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Muko is easily distracted by attractive girls, even during serious moment, such as during her fight with Kalita.
  • Diving Kick: The dropkick is one of the most used techniques in the comic. Fenny uses it against Roora, Snuggly uses it against Tanka Talon, and Muko has used it twice on Adelgund and Kalita.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Nyarai, Cookie, Peki. Also most Combagals inside the ring prefer to fight barefooted or with no shoes at all for better movement.
  • Dream-Crushing Handicap: Cookie wanted to be a Combagal when she was a little girl. Sadly, she realized that she was never going to grow tall enough to have a decent fighting chance in the ring. She's trying to make it up by being a manager training and promoting aspiring Combagals to become champions.
  • Driven to Suicide: Harry, Muko's first fan, was about to commit suicide after being fired from his job. He only changed his mind after Muko was nice to him by doing customer service for him at Cafe Carrots.
  • Drop the Hammer: Dinedon marks the entrance of Team Executor by using an oversized gavel.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Some characters resort to drinking when they have trouble. Deconstructed as they become The Alcoholic and suffer the consequences afterwards.
    • As a flashback in Chapter 19, Cookie after selling her Combagals to Shun Gonfano, started to drink in despair when she realized that nobody wanted to hire her after Trilamity Day. She became alcoholic and, during a drunken episode, ended in Shun's club, where she lost what little respect her Combagals had for her.
  • Drugs Are Bad: Most drugs that appear in the comic are painted in a negative light. Fittingly enough, the story takes place in a setting that resembles Japan, where it has a strong anti-drug stance.
    • Cookie refuses to let Muko take painkillers after her fight with Kalita because they're bad for the body, leading to an addiction.
      • This is Foreshadowing as this happened to one of her Combagals in the past, destroying both of their careers.
    • Leyline, the second founding member of the Roda Kira Gang, has a glue addiction. Gantus, the new leader, exploits this by giving him something more potent.
    • Kalita had drug addicts as parents. She was left an orphan when they died by overdose.
  • The Dutiful Daughter: Saniko, Muko's older sister, has to deal with a depressed father, an irresponsible younger sister, and an absent mother while working overtime. It takes a toll on her emotional health.
  • Dysfunctional Family: Muko has no idea what she wants to do with her life, Saniko is dealing with the stress of being The Dutiful Daughter to the household, and Bill is a depressed mess. The mother is also absent.
    • Kalita's parents were junkies who died of overdose.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Some Combagals appear in posters in early chapters, flashbacks, or the occasional Imagine Spot of a random character only to reappear a few chapters later.
  • Easily Distracted Referee: While they provide interference, referees won't always notice foul play.
    • In the first chapter, Fenny's manager angrily calls out the referee for not penalizing Roora when the latter grabs Fenny by the tail.
    • Justified in Part 2 as Cookie notices that the referee was bribed to allow Nyarai to use excessive brutality on Muko in Chapter 14. Besides that, he does his job as a referee fairly, like calling out the Exe-Cutie-Ves for interfering with the fight between Adelgund and Peki in Chapter 15 or trying to penalize Adelgund for breaking Peki's leg in Chapter 16.
  • Elemental Powers: Nyarai and Kalita demonstrate the ability of using fire in Part 2 and lightning for their strongest techniques.
  • Elemental Punch: Kalita delivers a Megaton Punch filled with lightning to Muko's face to end their rematch.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Cookie is called Misfortune Cookie because of her bad luck.
  • Everyone Has Standards: The crowd turns on Adelgund when she breaks Peki's limbs out of jealousy and heartbreak for betraying her and teaming up with Nyarai. According to Cookie in the next chapter, Adelgund will never recover her former popularity after this incident.
  • Everything's Better with Cows: Jowdie is a cow and the Token Good Teammate of the Cyclone Crushers. She even gets A Day in the Limelight in Chapter 33 with Nyarai and Mellow.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: Tasha is the owner of the Monyan soapland. She is a Bathing Beauty and also a close friend of Cookie who allowed her to use the soapland's janitor closet for two years as her agency for two years. She's also a good boss to her girls, as part of the reason why she lets Cookie live in Monyan was that Skully, who worked for Cookie back then, saved two workers from an Attempted Rape so she's expressing her loyalty to them by promoting Skully with a billboard and letting Cookie stay indefinitely.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: Peki, the second half of Team Executor is a penguin. She was also the true reason they became the Masato Champions as her advice allowed Adelgund to control her strength, increasing her popularity and earning them more matches until they defeated the previous champions.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Gantus is the largest member of the Roda Kira Gang. He's also the one who corrupted it in the first place.
  • Evil Wears Black: Gantus, and most members who follow his evil ideals in the Roda Kira Gang, wear black jackets.
  • Extremity Extremist: When fighting, Nyarai prefers fighting with her legs.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Fenny's manager wears one.
  • Face: Discussed and explained by Cookie in Chapter 7. A Face is a heroic Combagal who earns the admiration of the public by fighting fair. Donkizari is the current example.
  • Family of Choice: The Roda Kira Gang is this to Kalita. It's why she wanted to reclaim it back from Gantus and why she's feeling empty after leaving it.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Some evil or Jerkass characters have shown to have fangs or pointy teeth. Examples include Nyarai, Gantus, and Scalitor.
  • Fan of the Underdog: Muko's only fans are Mellow, Harry, and Shira, whereas the rest of the audience in her debut match doesn't care about her presence.
  • Fantastic Racism: There is some discrimination against certain species known as Wilds. Nyarai (a cheetah) suffered a lot of this in the past and it's a Berserk Button of hers if someone discriminates her or "plays the Wild Card" on her.
    • On Chapter 15, a flashback scene with Team Executor mentions a group named Kalandesians that is also being discriminated.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: The setting of the comic resembles Japan. This goes from the cities, the character names, concepts, and even the use of Gratuitous Japanese in some chapters. Even furry fighting is based on Japanese pro-wrestling, which is known as puroresu there, which allows the use of martial arts techniques alongside wrestling techniques.
  • Fashion Designer: Ida Huggler is the best fashion designer of Tendonchi. She's also the friend of Cookie who made the maid costume in Chapter 3.
  • Feminist Fantasy: The main characters are female pro-wrestlers and this also extends to the Combagals, the fighters of the comic. Combagals are also shown to be celebrities that have their own influence in the story. Even with the inclusion of male fighters, they don't have as much of an influence in the setting as Combagals do.
  • Final Boss: Cookie invokes this with Donkizari in Chapter 24, declaring her as the last Combagal that Muko must defeat in her journey. Justified as Donkizari is the World's Strongest Woman and nobody has bested her in years.
  • Finger Gun: Nyarai does the gesture in Chapter 17.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Some Combagals like using gloves with the fingers cut off for protection and stylish choice.
  • Finishing Stomp: Nyarai stomps on Adelgund's face despite the fact that she was unconscious and had gotten her jaw broken a few seconds ago.
  • Flash Step: Peki and Nyarai can do this during the Masato match, showing how highly skilled they are in using their speed.
  • Flipping the Bird: A very common gesture of defiance in the comic.
    • Muko does this to her boss when she quits Cafe Carrots.
    • Kalita does this a lot in Part 3 that it becomes a character tic when angry or annoyed that it becomes a character trait.
    • One of the Exe-Cutie-Ves does this in Chapter 17.
    • Miho and Mr. Dings do this to each other when saying goodbye, showing how much hate they have in their relationship as coworkers.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Saniko is the responsible sibling who works late hours to look after herself and her little sister. Muko is the foolish sibling who pretty much is into pro-wrestling more out of perversion than to get an actual job.
  • Foot Focus: Lots of close-ups tend to go to Nyarai's feet in the comic and the non-canon comics.
  • Forced to Watch: Muko is forced to watch as Nyarai brutally defeats Adelgund to the point of hospitalization with Leg Jet Burst. She wants to tag in to save her but Adelgund refuses to prevent Muko from committing a Senseless Sacrifice against an opponent that outmatched her without using her real strength.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Kalita rejects Cookie's offer to become a Combagal back in Part 1. However, the cover of Arc 1 shows her as one of the four protagonists and dressed as a Combagal, meaning that she's bound to accept in the future. Come Part 3, and after some Character Focus explaining her motivations, Kalita becomes a Combagal.
  • Foreshadowing: Several plot points of some early chapters become more evident in later ones.
    • Cookie calls out Muko in the dangers of painkillers because her best Combagal got addicted to them and destroyed her career as a result.
  • Forgiveness: An important part of Muko's Character Development and Cookie's Redemption Quest deal with this. While Freydar and the Cyclone Crushers want revenge on Cookie for failing them as a manager, Muko is the first person who recognizes that Cookie is genuinely sorry for her mistakes and forgives her, not just for Trilamity Day but also the Masato match. Cookie's Redemption Quest is also about earning the forgiveness of others by becoming a better manager than the one she used to be as Fortune Cookie back in her prime.
  • Formerly Fit: Besides suffering depression, Bill Bunburger also put on weight in contrast to his appearance as Employee of the Year of 1993.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Shun Gonfano wears glasses and his actions put him in the Big Bad territory of the story.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Muko is sanguine (energetic, optimistic, friendly), Cookie is phlegmatic (analytical, calm, and nurturing), Kalita is melancholic (aloof, serious, and responsible), and Nyarai is choleric (short-tempered, prideful, and ambitious).
  • Foxy Vixen: Kalita is a very attractive vixen with a body that Muko ranks 10 out of 10. Fenny is attractive enough that Muko bought a body pillow of her after the fight with Roora.
  • Friendly Enemy: Implied in Chapter 2 with Fenny and Roora despite having a brutal fight.
  • Funny Background Event: Happens in many chapters of the comic.
  • Funny T Shirt: Muko likes wearing these in some chapters.
  • Furo Scene: The cover pages of the first chapters in Part 3 involve this trope with Muko, Cookie, and Kalita, ending with the three of them in a hot spring.
  • Gag Boobs: Some jokes are made about Kalita's breasts, such as being a good hiding spot for documents. Likewise, Jowdie, the most endowed member of the Cyclone Crushers gets some boob humor with Mellow in Chapter 33.
  • The Gambling Addict: This is how Cookie got into such a high debt as revealed in Chapter 21. Due to lack of income for two years, she resorted to gambling to keep herself going. However, her poor luck made her lose all the money she had and even get serious debts that she's yet to pay.
  • Gamer Chick: Muko is this. She even played fighting video games under the mistaken belief that they would make her a better fighter.
  • Get Out!: As part of Muko being allowed to try furry fighting again, Saniko orders her to move out of the house in order to learn responsibility. Muko is forced to live on Cookie's office (a janitor's closet) until she gets enough money to buy an apartment.
  • Get Over Here: Invoked by Nyarai, who wears long earrings so that her opponents pull her towards them. Since Nyarai is a Combat Sadomasochist and a striker, she doesn't mind getting hit as long as she can hit back harder.
  • The Ghost: Gantus and Freydar were mentioned on Part 1, but made no appearances until Part 3.
  • The Gift:
    • Cookie notices on two separate occasions that Kalita and Nyarai have natural talent as Combagals. Kalita has the charisma of a biker leader and developed fighting skills and Nyarai knows how to draw attention to herself.
    • Ida is described by Cookie as having a third eye for fashion that made her the best tailor in Tendonchi.
  • Glass Jaw Referee: A referee can also be hit by a Combagal in the middle of a match, although this is a rare occasion.
    • It happens on Chapter 16 when Adelgund smacks the referee unconscious for trying to penalize her just when she was about to break Peki's second leg. May also count as Kick the Son of a Bitch as it is implied by Cookie in Chapter 14 that he took a bribe by Shun to let Nyarai brutalize Muko unfairly so the smack was well deserved.
  • The Glomp: Muko tends to give surprise hugs when excited. Cookie and Nyarai get annoyed with this trait. Cookie warms up by the end of Part 2 and is more comfortable with Muko touching her.
  • Good Is Dumb: Muko is not smart, and she is easily distracted, but her heart is in the right place as seen with her interactions with Cookie.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Kalita has many fighting techniques thanks to years of fighting experience as a brawler. That being said, her punches are her strongest weapon.
  • Grapple Move: Since furry fighting is based in pro-wrestling, grappling moves are one of the strongest basis in the repertoire of many Combagal. However, furry fighting is based in the puroresu style, that included striking martial arts, so Combagals that specialize in striking can win through knockout like Peki or Nyarai.
  • Gratuitous French: Chapter 29 has the phrase rien me va plus when playing roulette. The phrase means nothing goes anymore.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: The occasional Japanese words come out in some chapters. They even provide Bilingual Bonus as well. Justified as the setting is a Fantasy Counterpart Culture of Japan.
  • Groin Attack: A rare female example in Chapter 1 where Roora picks up Fenny and slams her crotch-first into her knee.
  • Growing Up Sucks: Muko struggles to find her path in life since she's a high school reject. Meanwhile, Kalita is a great student, but she struggles with finding the path she desires.
  • Having a Blast: This is how Leg Jet Burst ends. Nyarai focuses all of her energy into her foot to deliver a final kick to the opponent's face, creating an explosion that can break their jaw, give them a concussion, and send them flying. She finished off Adelgund this way in Chapter 17.
  • Heel: A villainous Combagal. They earn the disapproval of the public by fighting dirty and brutally. Scalitor is the symbol of the Heel.
  • Height Angst: Cookie is very sensitive about her short stature, claiming that she's tall for a squirrel. This is mainly overcompensation for her short height hindering her dream of becoming a Combagal.
  • Heinous Hyena: One of Kalita's underlings is a hyena. He's very violent and enjoys it. To Kalita's disappointment, he supports the ideals of Gantus in Chapter 27, leading to her cutting ties with him in the following chapter.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: The Roda Kira Gang members didn't use helmets because they didn't consider them badass. This bit Debbie in the ass when she crashed her bike in a race with Gantus, putting her in the hospital for a while.
  • Heroic Second Wind: Muko gets a couple of these when fighting Kalita thanks to a couple of motivational speeches from Cookie. While she still loses, it makes their bond stronger.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Muko and Cookie are the protagonists and heroes of the story. However, some actions from their past and some enemies looking to destroy them have left them with tarnished names.
  • High-Class Call Girl: Nyarai and the Cyclone Crushers work as hostesses when they're not fighting as Combagals.
  • Hoist Hero over Head: Cookie visualizes Kalita as a Combagal when she sees the latter holding Muko above her head during her fight with her at Cafe Carrots.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Tasha, the boss of Monyan, allowed Cookie to set her office in the janitor's room rent-free for two years because one of her Combagals (Skully) saved her girls from an Attempted Rape two years ago. She and her friends also help Muko with her training in Chapter 25.
  • Honey Trap: Miho, the newest member of the Exe-Cutie-Ves seduced Adelgund and joined the group to ensure Peki would betray Team Executor out of jealousy and heartbreak.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: All of Muko's major fights in Act 1 so far are these due to lack of training and experience. As of Part 3, she wants to avert this by starting her Combagal training.
  • Hostess Club: According to Cookie in Chapter 2, Nyarai works as a hostess in Club Diamond. In Chapter 6, she's seen working as a hostess in Club Nighthawk alongside other Combagals who turn out to be the Cyclone Crushers.
    • Zebreastian, the receptionist of Monyan, used to work as a host, but changed careers after the work became too stressful for him.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: Cookie was one of the most influential managers of furry fighting two years before the comic started. She was called Fortune Cookie because she trained Combagals that always won. After Trilamity Day, her luck and popularity have gone downhill.
  • How We Got Here: The comic occasionally moves forward in time in one chapter and then uses the next one to move back in time to build up the moment.
    • Chapter 8 reveals that Muko met Nyarai and took a selfie with her. However, the audience only see their meeting in a flashback in Chapter 9. Later, the next chapter shows how Cookie set up the match with Team Executor in the first place by moving backwards further and shifting the narrative perspective to her and Nyarai.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: Adelgund easily does this to Muko in Chapter 12 thanks to the size difference between them.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Nyarai fights the first half of the Masato match using traditional wrestling with her own personal spin. However, she's actually a Kick Chick who's a lot stronger when she pulverizes her opponents with her legs.
  • Idiot Hero: Muko only knows the names of the Combagals and that's mainly because she only bothered to watch the pictures in her Combagals magazines rather than read the articles. She's also easily distracted by perverted thoughts, meaning that Cookie has to put extra effort in making her lessons stick.
    • Adelgund seems to fit this category as well. Despite being an experienced, powerful and beloved Combagal, she seems to be oblivious to certain social cues or things that are in plain sight, for example when she failed to notice Peki's obvious discomfort at the fact their manager was using her status as the Wild to pit her in villainous roles in their matches, and later on when she didn't notice Nyarai was using her phone to record the incriminating conversation between Cookie and Dinedon...despite holding her phone and looking straight at it.
  • Idol Singer: Snuggly and Sleepy.
  • I Hate Past Me: After the events of Part 2 forced her to face her past, Cookie shows signs of it in Part 3 when confronted with consequences of her earlier behavior as Fortune Cookie as she realizes what a horrible person she was and how she turned her back on her ideals.
  • I Kiss Your Foot: The cover and climax of Chapter 33 as a whole. After spending most of her time bullying Mellow, Nyarai has Mellow, under Jowdie's suggestion kneel down and beg her to smell her feet to see if they smell like popcorn as suggested by a rumor Jowdie heard about cat paw pads. Realizing that Nyarai is ordering to do so under threat of assault, Mellow complies and realizes that her paws do smell like popcorn. Nyarai and Jowdie are amused by his honesty, causing Nyarai to stop bullying him and develop a liking towards Mellow.
  • I Know Mortal Kombat: This is how Muko trained for furry fighting in the first chapters. She replaced RPG games for fighting games. Predictably, they're no replacement to fighters with real experience.
  • Imagine Spot: Frequently used to show visual metaphors, gags, flashbacks, and other storytelling techniques. It depends on the character having them.
  • In a Single Bound: Muko's legs are strong enough to leap over a group of bodyguards trying to detain her on Chapter 2. She weaponizes her jumping strength when performing a dropkick she learned from Cookie.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Mellow has a crush on Muko, who is a very girl-crazy lesbian, who is in love with every pretty girl she sees, most of which are probably straight, as seen when she asked out Tasha and she gently rejected her by pointing out she preferred the company of men.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Muko dresses provocatively, which earns the attention of Mellow and the approval of Cookie. She weaponizes this trope to win The Bet against the maids of Cafe Carrots by using clumsiness and her maid outfit.
    • Snuggly's products besides singing end up being too seductive for most audiences, which causes her manager to cut the commercials short.
  • Instant Costume Change: Cookie has the ability to switch Muko's attires with a single movement. She does this in both of her fights with Kalita.
  • Instant Humiliation: Just Add YouTube!: The Spotter is a media website that, according to Cookie, focuses more on sensationalistic approach rather than facts. Sure enough, they constantly make articles that slander/libel Muko and Cookie, damaging their reputation.
  • Instant-Win Condition: As the Masato champion, defeating Adelgund is the quickest way to obtain the belt. Even though Muko was still in fighting condition, the fight immediately ended when Adelgund was defeated by Nyarai.
  • Intrepid Reporter: The Spotter gets one in Part 3 who tries to sabotage Muko and Cookie by finding out about their shady pasts. She's also Miho, the Exe-Cutie-Ves newest member who turned out to be a traitor.
  • It's All My Fault: Cookie has this attitude in Chapter 19, refusing to talk to Muko out of guilt and shame for getting her hurt by not preventing Nyarai's betrayal. She only talks with Muko because Saniko forces her to snap Muko out of her depression.
  • Japanese Delinquents: The Roda Kira Gang have some elements of bōsōzoku bikers. Some of them like Kalita are still in high school.
  • The Jinx: Cookie is called Misfortune Cookie because every time she tries something, which ranges from gambling to her profession, she's met with bad luck that also affects those associated with her.
  • Jobber: Discussed and explained. As it turns out, Combagals who lose their first match become this trope and they are destined to lose to make other Combagals look better in comparison. This happens to Peki, and to further rub salt in the wound, her manager Dinedon uses her status as the Wild to pit her in villainous jobber roles in order to boost Adelgund's reputation.
  • Junkie Parent: Both of Kalita's parents are stated to be one in Chapter 34. They even die by overdose.
  • Kavorka Man: Gender-flipped. Adelgund has a masculine appearance and she's also larger than most characters, but she's very popular. The Exe-Cutie-Ves all have a crush on her despite not being as attractive as other Combagals, implying that Adelgund attracts them with her strength and charm.
  • Kayfabe: Discussed in Part 2 and implied across the comic. Many characters point out that pro-wrestling isn't real, mentioning how the fights are fixed. However, Cookie also mentions shoot-fighting, where the fights become real.
  • Kick Chick: Nyarai has a strong preference for kicks by using her long legs and feline agility and flexibility. Her debut chapter has her literally kick out a hippo who was groping her, she stomped Cookie to the ground with a windmill kick, and she was going to start her fight with Peki with a descending overhead kick. Official art for her debut fight even has her do a flying crescent kick, further showcasing her preference for using her legs to damage her opponents.
  • Kick the Dog: Nyarai does this a lot on Part 2 by disrespecting Cookie despite being her manager, letting Muko be pummeled by Adelgund, betraying them, beat up Muko, mock Cookie by reminding her of Freydar, hospitalize Adelgund, and stomp on her face to do her victory pose.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Adelgund busts Nyarai's nose for giving Muko a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown that left her crying and she also knocks out the referee who allowed the beating to take place. For her part, Nyarai breaks Adelgund's jaw and gives her a concussion with an explosive kick and stomps on her unconscious face for breaking Peki's limbs and forcing her to be a Jobber to promote herself as a champion of justice due to prejudice against Wilds.
  • Killer Bear Hug: Adelgund uses one in Chapter 15 to restrain Peki and ask her why she betrayed her, setting up a flashback sequence.
  • King of Beasts: Donkizari, fittingly enough, is the Continental Champion of Concatta and a lioness to boot. Leyline, the second founding member of the Roda Kira Gang is also a lion.
  • Knife Nut: Kalita faces one in Chapter 29 outside an alley. She still wins with a single punch.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em:
    • The Exe-Cutie-Ves try to arrest Shun Gonfano for interrupting the fight between Team Deliverance and Team Executor.Shun came prepared and brought all of the Cyclone Crushers, forcing the Exe-Cutie-Ves back as they realized that they were outnumbered and outmatched.
    • This is also a trait of Kalita as she knows the limits of her power clearly to know when a fight is a lost cause. She refuses to become Muko's replacement tag partner to face Skully and Bolouma because Muko is weak and will not become strong enough to face them in a month, leaving Kalita to face them by herself in the worst case scenario. She also tries to recruit Debbie to defeat Gantus, implying that she knows that she can't beat him on her own.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Adelgund, the Masato Champion, is a very large woman with a masculine appearance. Muko is dismayed that she's her first opponent.
  • The Last Straw: Chapter 16 reveals that Peki was willing to forget and forgive all of Adelgund's transgressions as long as they got to be a Face team again. Then she found her having sex with Miho, who was later turned into the latest member of the Exe-Cutie-Ves.
  • Leotard of Power: A very common attire for Combagals because it provides mobility for arms and legs and fanservice.
  • Literal-Minded: Muko takes everything Cookie says literally such as the world is your stage means that she can fight anywhere she wants, meaning that she's going to fight Kalita despite her not being a furry fighter. She also misunderstood the Face term and assumed that Donkizari had a large face.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: The comic has four protagonists, a biker gang, an elite team of Combagals with more than a dozen members, individual Combagals, friends, relatives, acquaintances, and an expanding cast with each chapter.
  • Loan Shark: Cookie is constantly under threat of loan sharks due to her high debts.
    • By the end of Part 2 and beginning Part 3, Kalita is the loan shark sent to get Cookie's payment.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Because of her impatience, short attention span, and lack of priorities, Muko is the only person in the setting who doesn't know about Cookie's bad reputation as a manager. She finds out in Chapter 14 and gets the details in Chapter 18 and Chapter 19. While disappointed with Cookie, she's understanding and forgiving, leading to the two having a stronger bond and having Character Development that keeps going in Part 3.
  • Loser Leaves Town: This is the losing condition of The Bet in Chapter 31 regardless of which version was made: If Muko and Kalita lose the match, they have to leave Botaun with Cookie, which is a career killer for furry fighters.
  • Lustful Melt: When Muko is surrounded by too many attractive girls and aroused to a certain level, she will literally melt. This becomes a part of her Character Development as Muko acknowledges it as a weakness that she needs to overcome.
  • Made of Iron: Combagals are naturally tough because of their training.
    • Fenny won the fight against Roora by exploiting an opening after enduring a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown that included a repeated Breast Attack and ended with a Groin Attack that left her in the ground.
    • Muko can take a lot of punishment bordering on Stone Wall even before starting her Combagal training.
    • Besides having Super Strength thanks to her size, Adelgund boasts great defense. At the Masato match, she fought the longest against Muko, Nyarai, Peki, and then Nyarai again.
  • Mad Scientist: Played for Laughs when one tries to get Cafe Carrots to hire his Robot Maid and Hilarity Ensues when she starts malfunctioning.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Gantus can bark so loud that he creates shock waves. It manages to intimidate Kalita into retreating.
  • Malicious Slander: The Spotter does this by virtue of being a tabloid that specializes in controversy. That being said, it delves into this in Part 3.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Shun Gonfano. Despite his seemingly friendly, sympathetic and helpful disposition towards Nyarai and her goal to end the discrimination against the Wilds, there are hints that he's merely using her for some secret agenda of his own. When Adelgund severely injures her by breaking her nose, Shun reacts with smug indifference and refuses to let others take Nyarai to the infirmary.
  • Masked Luchador: This is Muko's attire as seen in the cover of Act 1.
  • Megaton Punch: Combagals are stronger than the average citizen. They can easily knock each other around the ring. As such, getting on the wrong end of their blows if you're not one of them can be painful...
    • Roora, unhappy at Muko barging into the shower rooms while she and Fenny were bathing, gave her and the security guards a kick that sent them crashing against a wall.
    • Nyarai shows her true Combagal side by kicking a hippo on the face, deforming it and sending him flying out of Club Nighthawk, causing him to crush a sign.
    • Kalita punched Muko so hard that she sent her head first into a wall, cracking the tiles and knocking her out.
  • Meido: The waitresses at Cafe Carrots dress like this. Muko dress like one when competing against them in Chapter 3.
  • Mentor's New Hope: Muko is this to Cookie.
  • Minor Major Character: Fenny and Roora only appear in the first chapter, but their fight inspires Muko to become a Combagal. Fenny even gives Muko instructions on how to become a Combagal after the latter bursts into the showers to talk to her and Roora in a flashback.
  • Missing Mom: Muko's mother is frequently mentioned, but she's yet to appear in the comic. It is implied that she's a sore spot for Muko and Saniko.
  • The Mole: Nyarai is this for Shun Gonfano by working as Cookie's Combagal and then recording incriminating evidence before her debut match to destroy her manager's reputation so that Nyarai can switch to Shun's Cyclone Crushers to promote them.
  • Mr. Exposition: Cookie acts like this for Muko since the latter doesn't know much of pro-wrestling in the first place.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Most Combagals fit this trope.
  • Murderous Thighs: Roora and Fenny do this to each other in their fight. Nyarai also tortures Muko by choking her with her legs.
  • Murphy's Law: Things never go well for Cookie and everyone connected to her. An example is the Masato match in Part 2 to put it mildly...
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: While Combagals are attractive, some of them do carry muscular bodies as a result of their training while still conserving their beauty like Roora and Nyarai. Donkizari and Scalitor are among the strongest Combagals in the lore and they have muscular appearances as well.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Most of the Combagals are attractive and shapely young women who fight larger and more muscular women. They can still fight and win despite those odds.
    • The Masato match zigzags with this trope. Muko averts this in her two fights since she has little muscle but gets manhandled by Adelgund and Nyarai due to the former being larger than her and the latter being more athletic. Peki played it straight as she's the smallest fighter and yet had the advantage against Adelgund. Meanwhile, Nyarai Played With this trope as she has defined abs and muscular legs. She beats Muko with athletic prowess and her true power allows her to defeat Adelgund despite size difference.
  • My Beloved Smother: This is Muko's main problem with Saniko as expressed in Chapter 19. Deep down, Muko wants validation as a person and as an adult. However, Saniko treats her as a child because of her failures, preventing harmony between the sisters. She resolves to treat Muko better by having her move out of the house in order to learn independence.
  • My Greatest Failure: Cookie considers Trilamity Day to be this, mainly because of what happened during it and the aftermath. The Masato match is a close second for getting Muko hurt and traumatized by Nyarai when she could have easily prevented her betrayal by researching her client.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Muko starts the comic like this, treating furry fighting as a chance to wrestle with attractive girls. By the end of Part 2 she's became aware of her status and is spending her time from Part 3 onwards trying to subvert it.
  • Natural Weapon: Deconstructed with Ida. Being a hedgehog with oversized quills makes her incapable of furry fighting as she's incapable of wrestling without hurting her opponent by mistake.
  • The Napoleon: Cookie is sensitive about her height, but she's also Hot-Blooded and prone to shouting when things surprise her.
  • Never Bring a Knife to a Fist Fight: As shown in Chapter 29, Kalita has no trouble beating a Knife Nut in a fight, even doing so with a single blow!
  • Never My Fault: Muko has this attitude regarding her bad relationship with her peers and boss, not acknowledging that she had poor work ethic and she was harassing her fellow maids.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: Scalitor is an alligator and she's the greatest Heel of the comic as she fought Donkizari, the maximum Face authority and hit her with a chair.
  • Next Tier Power-Up: Parodied at the end of Muko's rematch with Kalita. She gets longer hair and a Battle Aura after a Rousing Speech from Cookie. And then Kalita beats her with one blow from her strongest technique.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Muko's fight with Kalita is this from beginning to end, especially with her perverted antics pissing her off.
  • Noodle Incident: Trilamity Day is an incident that caused Cookie to be hated by wrestling fans two years before the story started.
    • She gives details on Chapter 18 regarding the incident: She overworked a promising Combagal named Freydar, who got a Career-Ending Injury because of it. As a result, Cookie lost a lot of respect from wrestling fans, her former Combagals, and other training institutions.
  • No-Sell: Tanka Talon tanks everything Snuggly throws at her due to being heavier and more muscular than her, giving her a Curb-Stomp Battle in Chapter 11.
    • For a scarier version, Nyarai's Abnormal Limb Rotation Range makes her immune to submission holds, which is the main weapon of most wrestlers. Adelgund is horrified by this information as Nyarai decimates her shortly afterward.
  • No Social Skills: Muko is very blunt, can't talk to men, invades personal space, and is open about expressing her libido. As of Part 3, she's becoming more reserved, mature, and tries to control her libido thanks to Character Development from her first match.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: Nobody ever lets Cookie forget her role in Trilamity Day, which she's trying to move on. Lampshades on Chapter 24 where she gets after being rejected three times on three different gyms and she assumes it's because of her role in Trilamity Day.
  • Once More, with Clarity!: As the Masato match keeps moving From Bad to Worse with each chapter. Several characters have flashbacks with their own perspectives that contribute to the tragedy. Adelgund is mad at Peki because she was supposed to pull a Heel–Face Turn at the end so that they could return to being a Face team again. Peki is mad at Adelgund for betraying her years ago and because she cheated on her with Miho before the match. Later, Cookie angrily discovers that Dinedon took a bribe from Shun before the match.
  • One-Hit Kill: Adelgund gives this to Nyarai with one well-placed knee to the snout that leaves her with a massive nosebleed once the fight gets serious.
  • Only One Name: Most characters are called by a single name and with no surname at all. Eventually subverted as more chapters start coming.
    • Peki is introduced as Peki Polight in Chapter 9, being the first character to have her surname revealed.
    • Cookie has her surname L'asagne revealed in Chapter 11.
    • Muko, Saniko, and Bill have their surname revealed in Chapter 24 thanks to the Spotter.
    • Mellow greets Jowdie as Jowdie Moohoshi upon meeting her in Chapter 33.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: As it turns out Kalita and her underlings are this when they're not at the Roda Kira Gang, as revealed in Chapter 26.
  • Origins Episode:
    • Chapter 15 shows how Peki and Adelgund became champions in a flashback.
    • Chapter 19 shows Cookie's past after Trilamity Day and how she became a Broken Pedestal to the Cyclone Crushers after selling them to Shun Gonfano.
  • Orphanage of Love: From what can be seen of Kalita's orphanage, it has good living accommodations for her and other orphans of different ages. She also encourages this atmosphere by being a Cool Big Sis who cooks for them.
  • Out of Focus: Despite being two of the four protagonists, Kalita and Nyarai didn't get much spotlight in Part 2 and Part 3 respectively. Kalita only appeared in flashbacks or was mentioned in Part 2, only making a significant appearance in the last pages of Chapter 19. Meanwhile, Nyarai didn't make significant appearances in Part 3 besides flashbacks and cameos, only appearing in A Day in the Limelight in Chapter 33.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: According to Cookie in a flashback with Nyarai in Chapter 7, she excels at getting the attention of the audience with her fighting skills, allowing her to do this to most Combagals fighting alongside her.
    • This is the reason Peki gives for betraying Adelgund in Chapter 13. The truth is more complicated.
    • Muko feels this way after her debut in Chapter 18 as Peki nearly defeated Adelgund, Adelgund defeated Peki and Nyarai in their first fight, and Nyarai easily bested Adelgund in her second fight, becoming the champion. In contrast, Muko was easily bested by Nyarai and could not save Adelgund, which caused her to quit furry fighting out of guilt and powerlessness.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Bolouma, one of the Cyclone Crushers, is a panda and one half of the Tendonchi Champions. Coincidentally, Brida, the Tendonchi Master of the Pink Business is also a panda...or at least resembles a thin one.
  • Panthera Awesome: There are many large cats in the cast that are as badass as their species they were born in.
    • Nyarai, one of the four protagonists, is a cheetah who can deliver powerful kicks with blinding speed and becomes the Masato Champion at the end of Part 2.
    • Donkizari is a lioness and the Continental Champion of Concatta.
    • Tanka Talon is a saber tooth tiger who makes her debut by breaking out of a coffin of ice.
    • Leyline is the second founding member of the Roda Kira Gang. He is a Badass Biker and the Number Two of the gang in both of its iterations.
  • Parental Abandonment: Muko and Saniko's father, Bill Bunburger suffers from depression and is unable to take care of his daughters. Their mother is implied to have either left or died. This forces Saniko to take care of Muko and Bill, greatly stressing her out. Meanwhile, Muko wants validation and support, something she doesn't get from Saniko.
  • Parental Substitute: Cookie is slowly becoming this to Muko.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Patchwork has an enthusiastic and encouraging smile when she trains you and when she's shoving you out of her ring.
  • Pink Heroine: As seen in the cover art of Volume 1, Muko's first furry fighting outfit was mostly pink. However, she eventually replaces it with a black Masked Luchador outfit as seen by the cover of Arc 1.
  • Playing with Fire: Nyarai's Signature Move has her coating herself in a Battle Aura made of fire and deliver a furious assault of fiery kicks to the opponent.
  • Pom-Pom Girl: Cookie's Combagal idea for Muko and Kalita's tag team in Chapter 29 involves them fighting as cheerleaders. Muko is into it, but Kalita looks embarrassed. Many characters, like Ida, believe the look don't suit them at all.
  • Poor Communication Kills: The Masato match is filled with instances of this. Nyarai points out to Cookie that she would have figured Nyarai was The Mole and prevented the chaos had she bothered finding out more about her. Likewise, Adelgund is Innocently Insensitive to Peki's feelings and brushes them off when she tries to talk whereas Peki tries to talk passive-aggressively.
  • Pregnant Badass: Defied. Debbie is heavily pregnant and goes What the Hell, Hero? on Kalita for trying to fight her despite having a baby inside. To Kalita's credit, she didn't know and feels guilty about it.
  • Prickly Porcupine: Played With as Ida Huggler is a hedgehog with a bit of a jaded and cynical personality, but she's very passionate about fashion, and she has a playful and teasing side of her when she messes with Cookie.
  • Product Placement: As celebrities, Combagals promote themselves via commercials and posters sponsoring a product.
    • Donkizari has a drink named Donko Brew and she's starring in a war movie.
    • Snuggly uses her matches to promote her singer career and products.
  • Promoted to Parent: Saniko has to work and take care of her sister Muko, which is taking a toll on her mental health as Muko gets fired from jobs and pursues many passions that she gives up later on.
  • Protection Racket: This is how Muko and Cookie met Kalita. She and her subordinates were doing a shakedown on Cafe Carrots while Muko and Cookie were doing The Bet for some earnings.
  • Pro Wrestling Is Real: The comic recognizes how pro-wrestling can be a choreographed fight so it makes the difference between kayfabe and shoot fighting. The former is when fights are arranged without anyone getting hurt and the latter is fighting for real.
  • Public Bathhouse Scene: The cover page of Chapter 24 is Muko, Cookie, and Kalita sharing a bath.
  • Punch Catch: Happens in a couple of fights when one opponent is of equal or greater strength than the other one.
    • Chapter 16 has a scary one between Adelgund and Peki. Adelgund is suffering a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown from Peki, but she manages to recover and push through the barrage to catch one of her flippers and break her arm, ending the match.
    • Gantus does this to Kalita with one finger to show the difference in strength between them.
  • Punched Across the Room: Roora pretty much boots Muko and many security guards trying to stop her with a single kick when all of them accidentally barge in on her and Fenny when they were bathing.
  • Race Fetish: A curious case where the character has a crush on their own race as Muko instantly has a crush on Patchwork in Chapter 24 and a casino bunny in Chapter 29. May be justified as Muko is girl-crazy and surrounded by girls of different species so seeing girls of her own species may cause her lust to go overdrive.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: After showing her strength for the first time in years Peki recovers her original popularity for nearly defeating Adelgund and tagging Nyarai in despite having three broken limbs.
  • Red Baron: The best Combagals have a special name for them that reflects their abilities.
    • Adelgund is called The Major As she was supposed to be a champion of justice in a period of civil unrest.
    • Peki was called The Prisoner to reflect social mistrust against Wilds. Her original name was Punching Peki because of her being a Boxing Battler who used her flippers for devastating punches.
    • Nyarai is called The Invincible due to her Abnormal Limb Rotation Range making her immune to submission holds.
  • Redemption Quest: This is Cookie's character arc. Besides wanting to recover her reputation as a manager by raising decent Combagals again, she also wants to make up for her mistakes as Fortune Cookie that hospitalized Freydar and alienated the Fortune Gals into joining the Cyclone Crushers.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Debbie, the original leader of the Roda Kira Gang, had bloodshot eyes and was a great fighter. Subverted now that she's a Retired Badass and is happy and satisfied with being a housewife.
  • Red Is Heroic: Kalita wears a red bodysuit and is the most honorable member of the Roda Kira Gang.
  • Red Light District: Tendonchi has many pink businesses such as hostess clubs, soaplands, and one of the Tendonchi Challenges involves Combagals proving their beauty to Brida, the maximum authority of Tendonchi in pink businesses.
  • The Resenter: Downplayed, but Muko shows that deep down she holds grudges against those who look down on her and strives to prove them wrong rather than let that feeling consume her.
  • Retired Badass: Debbie was the original leader of the Roda Kira Gang. However, she was beaten by Gantus in a race and suffered an accident. As she recovered, she fell in love with her doctor and married him. She is currently pregnant with his child. Kalita is not happy to hear this, especially when Debbie tells her to forget about the gang they created.
  • Revenge: It's a common motivation for some of the important characters in the comic.
    • Nyarai hated working alongside Cookie, but considers the squirrel's suffering in Chapter 14 to be Worth It as she emotionally tortures her through Muko. The reason she's going so far is that she was a close acquaintance of Freydar, Cookie's former client who got a Career-Ending Injury because of her.
  • Rewatch Bonus: Most chapters have Foreshadowing or an Early-Bird Cameo that makes reading the previous chapters necessary to better understand the plot.
  • Righteous Rabbit: Muko can hardly be described as a good person on first sight because of her perverted motives, but she has a sense of justice, like fighting Kalita to defend the money of Cafe Carrots. She also has a sense of loyalty to Cookie and can show a compromise to better herself as a person after the Masato match.
  • The Rival: Muko makes Nyarai her rival at the end of Part 2.
    • Sleepy acts like one to Snuggly.
  • Robot Maid: A mad scientist makes one and tries to promote her by having her work at Cafe Carrots. She malfunctions as soon as she's given an order. That being said, she's still considered a better maid than Muko.
  • Rousing Speech: Cookie starts giving these to Muko as of Part 3 to motivate her into becoming a better Combagal.
  • The Scapegoat: As of Part 3, this is the main strategy of the Spotter to damage the reputation of Muko and Cookie. They try to paint Muko as a manipulator that convinced her high school teacher to sleep with her. They also try to act as if Muko conspired with Kalita to destroy Cafe Carrots despite them not knowing each other at the time.
  • Scenery Porn: The settings are very detailed, particularly Tendonchi during the night. It even shows posters and billboards promoting other Combagals.
  • The Scrooge: Cookie doesn't like spending money because of the huge amount of debts on her name.
  • Self-Made Woman: Ida Huggler was a hedgehog with nothing to her name except the clothes on her back when she first met Cookie three years before the comic started. By the time she's introduced, she became the best seamstress in Tendonchi.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Most of the cast shows signs of these. Muko shows Lust, Cookie shows Greed, Kalita shows Wrath, and Nyarai shows Pride.
  • Serious Business: Furry fighting is very important in Concatta, the main setting of the comic. Many places in the story have billboards, posters, and magazines promoting Combagals. They also take the sport seriously enough to worship important figures like Donkizari, the Continental Champion, or despise Cookie for her role in Trilamity Day.
  • She's Got Legs: All of Nyarai's outfits leave her legs bare, showing how long, shapely, and muscular they are. Justified as Nyarai is proud of her beauty and she uses her legs for powerful kicks as her fighting style.
  • Shock and Awe: Kalita's strongest move is to cover her fist in lightning and deliver an Elemental Punch to her opponent. It's strong enough to defeat Muko in their rematch after her Heroic Second Wind on the previous chapter.
  • Shower Scene: Muko and Kalita have separate shower scenes at the beginning of Chapter 26.
  • Shown Their Work: The comic is a good way to learn about pro-wrestling as it introduces wrestling terms and techniques that the beginners won't know and that people familiar with the theme will recognize.
  • Show Some Leg: According to Cookie, most Combagals dress provocatively for the sake of fanservice.
  • Simple, yet Awesome: During her debut match, Muko shows that she learned a dropkick and a clothesline from Cookie's instructions. While not the most flashy moves in the sport, they're still among the most effective.
  • Slasher Smile: Nyarai can give feral grins when she's threatening others or she's about to lay the hurt on someone.
  • Smash Sisters: Cookie describes tag teaming Combagals to be like this, which causes Muko to mention a tag team made of twin tigresses that also fits the trope literally.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Kalita smokes during fight intermissions or before she's about to fight.
  • The Stinger: Chapter 29 adds a couple of pages after Kalita agrees to become a Combagal. The main one is that Freydar is planning to return as a Combagal.
  • Stone Wall: Muko may not be trained, but Cookie recognizes that she can take a lot of punishment through sheer determination. She even calls her a damage sponge at one point.
  • Storming the Castle: Cookie has an Imagine Spot featuring Muko and Nyarai doing this (even dressed as knights) when she's doing negotiations with Dinedon in Chapter 10.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Cookie is prone to this when emotional.
  • Super Strength: Adelgund has this because of her size.
  • Super Speed: Nyarai weaponizes this during her fights to throw kicks fast enough they turn invisible and set on fire.
    • Muko also shows shades of this when pushing her body to the limits, running from one side of a city to another in a matter of minutes. By Part 3, she's learning to tap into it with training.
  • Super Window Jump: Muko does this in Chapter 25 while carrying Cookie as she's about to start her training. Naturally, Cookie is more scared than impressed.
    "I am not a football!"
  • Supreme Chef: This is one of the three requirements that one of the Tendonchi Champions need to have.
    • Fittingly enough, Kalita is shown to be a good cook for her fellow orphans.
  • Symbolic Serene Submersion: Chapter 18 ends with one in a Downer Ending and Chapter 19 still has it in a Downer Beginning after a Time Skip of two weeks.
  • Tag Team: According to Cookie, the true heart of furry fighting lies in tag team fights. They're more popular than solo fights and two of the most important tournaments (the Tendonchi Challenges and the Queen of Fighters Tournament) revolve around them.
  • "Take That!" Kiss: Adelgund kisses Muko on the cheek in the middle of a hold. Since she is a large, masculine woman rather than the attractive ladies that Muko desires to wrestle, Muko screams and breaks out of the hold.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Surprisingly enough, Muko managed to get in a relationship with her high school teacher back when she was 17 years old, despite her teacher being married and twice her age. Her teacher sadly uses their relationship in an interview to discredit Muko by putting herself as a victim who was manipulated by her.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Kalita's underlings, while weaker than her, are more vicious. One of them is shown to be an Ax-Crazy hyena with a fondness for breaking stuff with a baseball bat and the other is an anteater who sexually harasses one of the maids of Cafe Carrots with his long tongue until Kalita stops him. Both of them are high school students.
    • Their vicious side goes Up to Eleven when they aid Gantus in his beautification project by terrorizing homeless people and burning their shelters in Chapter 27.
  • Theatrics of Pain: As demonstrated by Adelgund against Muko in Chapter 12, professional Combagals can simulate devastating techniques without causing damage to their enemies. Muko notices that Adelgund didn't hurt her after being body slammed and that the sound was made by Adelgund hitting the mat with her arm.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: The events of Trilamity Day have left a stain on Cookie's reputation with wrestling fans. She reveals in Chapter 18 that she caused her client Freydar, who was a gifted Combagal with the potential of defeating Donkizari, to suffer a Career-Ending Injury due to overworking her.
  • Those Two Guys: Mellow and Harry due to being Muko's only fans and hanging out together in her debut match.
  • Title Drop: Some chapters are named after some meaningful dialogue that happens within them.
  • Tragic Dream: Cookie wanted to be a Combagal, but she was born a midget, making it impossible to defeat larger opponents in the ring.
  • Tragic Dropout: As revealed in Chapter 24, Muko was this as she dropped out of school in her senior year. This lead to her fruitlessly pursuing hobbies to find her self-worth for eighteen months until she met Cookie.
  • Training from Hell: Paipu Katto gave Snuggly and Sleepy one in the flashback of Chapter 32. It drove them to tears every day, but it paid off as the Doable Dolls became the number one idol group of Concatta and the Ankyono Champions in a year.
  • Training Montage: Chapter 25 and half of Chapter 26 focuses on Cookie training Muko to become a true Combagal and how Muko has turned that training into her lifestyle.
  • Transgender: Chapter 32 gives the audience the story of one too via flashback. There was a man named Paipu Katto, and he was the trainer of the Doable Dolls. Under his training, they became the number one idol singing pair and the Ankyono Champions in a year. One day, Sleepy had diarrhea during a singing competition. Paipu decided to help by crossdressing, costing Snuggly the competition and her career after she had a breakdown with her microphone still on. He got fired, but Paipu was full of happiness for singing on stage that he decided to pursue it. He changed his sex and became the female singer Daikarin.
  • Trapped by Gambling Debts: As revealed in Part 3, besides not getting clients for two years, Cookie obtained a large amount of debts after becoming The Gambling Addict in her desperation to obtain quick money. Naturally, Cookie wants lots of money to pay off her debt.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: The Roda Kira Gang was formed by two females (Debbie and Kalita) and a male (Leyline).
  • Two Lines, No Waiting: Chapter 26 is divided in two perspectives that show Muko and Kalita's ordinary lives outside of furry fighting and the Roda Kira Gang.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Muko shows enough emotional maturity to understand the wrongs other characters made and still forgive them. She forgives Cookie for their rocky start as manager and Combagal (which included learning that Cookie overworked one of her Combagals to the breaking point, selling the Cyclone Crushers to Shun Gonfano, and also forgiving Cookie for getting her beat up by Nyarai), despite having all the right to mistrust her.
  • Unproblematic Prostitution: Tendonchi is a Red Light District with many pink businesses. Played With as despite being a big industry in Tendonchi, pink businesses still have complications like unruly clients and such.
  • Unsound Effect: The comic has some sound effects traditional to a comic. That being said, some punches and kicks, even some actions are Shaped Like Itself
  • Unstoppable Rage: Kalita, after being humiliated by Muko's perverted antics too much for her liking, goes berserk and gives her a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown that leaves her unconscious.
  • Vague Age: The comic doesn't give the ages of the characters in Part 1 or Part 2, leaving viewers to calculate based on appearance.
    • Subverted with Snuggly and Sleepy, who are 21 and 22 years old in Chapter 20.
  • Villain Respect: Despite beating the snot out of Muko, Kalita expresses respect towards her since she was the only person willing to stand up to her, despite being far weaker, while everyone else at the diner just cowered in fear.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Shun Gonfano, the Cyclone Crushers, and Nyarai become this after the Masato Championship by turning Muko, Cookie, and Adelgund into the villains of the fight through sheer manipulation.
  • Waif-Fu: Peki is the smallest fighter of the Masato match, but she's Adelgund's tag partner, meaning she's as strong as her partner. It turns out that she has enough punching strength to make Adelgund bleed and nearly win the match when she switches side. She only loses due to being a Glass Cannon fighting against a Mighty Glacier while forgetting about her opponent's strength.
  • Wall Jump: Muko uses this in Chapter 21 to nail Kalita with a drop kick. It doesn't take her out, but it surprises Cookie how Muko cleverly used the move she taught her against a more skilled adversary.
  • Walking Swimsuit Scene: Combagals can use swimsuits or bikinis as their fighting outfits for fanservice and freedom of movement like Roora, Peki, and Nyarai.
    • The fanservice part of this comes when Cookie does a gravure shot with Muko and Kalita wearing swimsuits in Part 3.
    • The Tendonchi Challenge of Brida involves Combagals doing oil wrestling while wearing swimsuits. Golgadoo and Stonk point out how undignified it is.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: Muko breaks her pants while doing squats in Chapter 26, much to her chagrin.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Muko gets weak limbs the longer she's surrounded by beautiful females. At its peak, it turns into Lustful Melt that pretty much makes her useless in a fight.
  • Wedgie: Roora gives one to Fenny during her No-Holds-Barred Beatdown for the sake of humiliating her and establishing dominance.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Sleepy and Snuggly were part of the same singing duo until Snuggly quit to become a Combagal. Sleepy then became a Combagal to fight her former friend in revenge. For her part, Snuggly still considers Sleepy her best friend and is distraught fighting her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Cookie gives one to Muko regarding her cavalier attitude towards the beating she received from Kalita, pointing out that as a Combagal she cannot risk injuring her body on the long term. She also mentally gives one to herself for convincing Muko to fight in the first place.
  • White Bunny: Muko, Saniko, and Bill Bunburger are this.
  • Whole Episode Flashback: Chapter 27 and Chapter 28 explain how Kalita left the Roda Kira Gang.
  • Wingding Eyes: Used when a character sees something they like. Ida uses them frequently on Chapter 30.
  • Woman Scorned: Peki and Adelgund to each other. Peki forgave or was willing to forget Adelgund's abuse for a fresh start until she caught her two-timing her with Miho, a stripper who Adelgund turned into the latest member of the Exe-Cutie-Ves. For her part, Adelgund was spiteful that Peki chose Nyarai as her new partner, going as far as to break her limbs out of spite.
  • World of Action Girls: Most of the characters who do furry fighting are Combagals, female pro-wrestlers. That being said, there are some male fighters in the story, such as Gantus.
  • World's Strongest Woman: Donkizari is the strongest Combagal in the setting. She's been the Continental Champion since Cookie was a child, making her unbeatable for decades.
    • Chapter 31 hints that her status is in question. Freydar is called the strongest woman in Concatta despite Donkizari still being champion, and that's not counting that she Took a Level in Badass during her two year hiatus.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: It's a wrestling comic so the Combagals must know at least one wrestling move when entering the ring.
  • Yakuza: Shun Gonfano and the sumiguza are the equivalent of yakuza.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Cookie gives these speeches to Muko as of Part 3, mainly when she gets depressed.
  • Younger Than They Look: Kalita and her underlings are still in high school as revealed in Chapter 26 despite their appearance, crimes, and fighting skills. It is also implied that Muko is older than them as she was in her last year of college one year and a half ago whereas Kalita is about to graduate.
