"But she got... Bigger."
Catherin McCollough

Olympic Dames is a modern fantasy webcomic created by Kaileigh Blue and co-written by Lyze.

Five teenagers wake up one morning to find themselves heavily pregnant. Their family seems to be oblivious and no one at school is questioning it. They soon learn with great responsibility comes great power as each girl discovers a super human ability contingent on the mystery foetus she is hosting.

After a few bungling fights and a match against a villainess and her henchman they can no longer ignore their calling.


Olympic Dames provides examples of:

  • All Myths Are True
  • Art Evolution: Originally in Pencil and ink, the art changed over time. First limitations of tools led to a decline, more recently the comic is now in color.
  • Author Appeal: Both the artist and co-writer are self-confessed pregnancy fetishists.
  • Bed Trick: The girls thought they were dreaming about a cute boy they had met but were actually visited by different Greek gods. The boy, Pan in disguise, is rather miffed that he didn't get to sleep with any of them himself.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Kasumi's father is an American military officer.
  • The Charmer: Pan, although many of the girls are too angry at him to fall for him.
  • The Chick: Despite being one of the few males, Adam is obviously the chick.

  • Childhood Friend Romance: Caitlyn and Adam.
  • Clingy MacGuffin: Catherin's weapon. She can summon and dismiss it therefore is unable to lose it.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Divine on Mortal: how did the foetusues/foetii get there in the first place?
  • The Empath: Taryn is somewhat. It hasn't come up.
  • Evil All Along: Myria first appears to be trying to help Caitlyn under the guise of a guidance councilor.
  • Falling into His Arms: After exhausting herself defeating a water elemental Dani is caught by Pan.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: The trope is Pan's excuse for appearing as a tall blond human to the leads. He really just wants to get laid.
  • Giant Mook: Frost, but don't tell him he's huge. He's sensitive.
  • Hearing Voices: Myria and Loki.
  • Heroic Host: any of the girls carrying magical foetii.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: While not a romantic couple, even 5'10 Myria is dwarfed by 8' Frost. 5'2 Danielle has eyes for 6'3 Pan. Showing then in panel standing together shows why comic females are just as tall as their male counterparts.
