Webcomic / Padak The Webcomic

Go To
She's just talking to her sprite. Nothing to see here.


Padak is a webcomic made in MSPFA by SniperInteleon. Four myrmidons play a game and risk their life doing so. There are also some other characters such as the sprites and Lil' Bal. There are also more classes and aspects, according to the creator. Did we mention the tengus? The webcomic is only in Act 2 Section 1. Additions are still currently being made.

Not to be confused with Padak the animated movie, which has a much different premise. It's also a lot darker, but Padak the Webcomic can get dark as well. SniperInteleon obviously knows the difference, since she apparently named it after the animated movie.


hey, bamba? sorry to tell you this, but there are more tropes on your porch!

  • Adaptation Name Change: The game the myrmidons are playing isn't called Sburb, but Scurb. It also has a blue color palette.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Like Homestuck, this webcomic likes to introduce new characters when something is about to happen.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Every myrmidon (sans Ascle) has these fangs.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Every myrmidon gets its own description on it's personality, like in Homestuck.
  • Floral Theme Naming: All the myrmidons are named after some kind of plant. Beito is named after beets, Bamba is named after bamboo, Tarra is named after the tarragon herb, Quara's name is based off of Kurara, the Japanese name for the sophora shrub (which is highly toxic, which gives her a meaning to being a Venomfang), and Ascle is named after the asclepias plant, or milkweed.

  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Inverted with Beito and Bamba. Beito wields a fan and uses Razor Wind with it, and Bamba wields nunchakus and hits imps with them.
  • Guide Dang It!: In-Universe. See How Do I Shot Web? below.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Beito has no idea how to use the Scurb Hud when he first uses it, because many things are confusing. He gets better at using it, though.
  • Obligatory Swearing: Being a Sburb fan adventure, it was bound to have this.
    • Beito averts this trope, as he never swears, and replaces every swear with the word heck.
  • Our Cryptids Are More Mysterious: There are mythical creatures in this webcomic. This is justified because this is a world where hybrids and other odd creatures can appear, and look like these creatures.
  • Sadly Mythtaken:
    • First off, there are the myrmidons. They are based off of the Myrmidons of Greek myth, which are ants turned into warriors. The Myrmidons of Padak are insects who evolved into a more humanoid form. There are also harpies, which in Padak are tropical birds, and dryads, which are bark marsupials.
    • Then, there are the tengus. They are obviously based off the Tengu from Japanese lore, but the closer they are to the Notional side of the aspect spectrum, the stronger their wind power is.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Beito's obsession with Puyo is an obvious reference to Puyo Puyo. This includes the figurines that appear around his house, the poster, and his desktop.
      • There is also Lil' Bal, which is literally Baldanders. Pretty blatant, that.
    • Along with that, Bamba really likes Splatoon to an extent. She's not as obsessed with it as Beito is Puyo.
  • Wham Line: Here's one.
    Lil' Bal gives you a sympathetic look, as he knows that he is safe, and that you are not. Lil' Bal knows the circumstances revolving around that game. It ends the world. You either play or die. Even if you play, you have a chance of dying. He is aware of this.
  • Your Tomcat Is Pregnant: Beito's dead harpy, Mr. Coco. Beito loved Mr. Coco, and took care of him. Mr. Coco then gave birth to chicks. It was until then that Beito realized that Mr. Coco was a girl.

How well does it match the trope?
