Webcomic / Vinigortonio

Go To

Vinigortonio (here in English and here in original Portuguese) is a hand drawn webcomic about three friends: Vinicius, Igor and Jose Carlos (and Igor's pet platypus) and the craziness that is their lives. Random antics and video game references abound.

Unlike most webcomics which are updated with a single strip on a weekly basis, Vinigortonio updates monthly with full comic stories about 50 pages long more like a traditional comic.


Arcs thus far are

  • A Day: Igor goes to Vinicius's house. What can go wrong?
  • The Sewer: Vinicius and Jose Carlos decide to investigate exploding manholes and Igor finds a way to prove mammals lay eggs: PLATYPUS!
  • The Debt: Igor gets arrested for being unable to pay immense damage fines and while escaping gets into hot water with an island of intellegent alligators.
  • Natural Sciences: Exam stress gets to be too much for Vinicius.
  • The Rescue: The gang travels to the south pole to rescue Platypus from a helicopter accident and stumble across the evil Raichan and his plot to take over the world.
  • The Card: Raichan returns to seek revenge on our protagonists.
  • The Fan: Igor's air conditioner is compromised, so he buys a fan. Very normal, except not.
  • The Search: Vinicius wants to buy the Japan-exclusive Chibi Robo. Unfortunately, it won't be so easy.
  • Advertisement:
  • Achievement Unlocked: Igor finds out a new way to earn achievements! But maybe he's going a bit too overboard...
  • E3 2012: Obligatory E3 special of Vinigortonio. The three friends go to Los Angeles to watch the event, because live streaming wasn't enough.
  • The Moon: The Moon is going to crash on Earth in 3 days and Igor's gonna know exactly how Link felt like in Majora's Mask.
  • The Inventor: Igor learns never to mess with Vinicius' Brawl disk again.


Vinigortonio contains examples of:

    Vinicius: You'd be surprised at how much they hide from us.
  • The Ace: Steven
  • Adventure Archaeologist: Max Adventura. It's in the name.

  • Artistic License – Geography: Jose Carlos sets fire to trees at the South pole. There haven't been trees in Antartica for who knows how long.

    • Detective Oak breaks a text box in half with his fist.
  • Butt-Monkey: Luck, reality and the laws of physics are definitely not on Igor's side. Case in point: he swithces the air conditioner on and causes a blizzard.

  • Call-Back: For such a random comic they have a lot of continuity gags.

  • Cooldown Hug: The one thing that can stop Vinicius's rampage Super Smash Bros Brawl
  • Cool Shades: Always have them on hand in case you run into a Matrix Bullet Time parody.

  • I Am the Trope: In a parody of Judge Dreas's famous line
    Detective Oak: Now I am the laws of physics!
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Despite his luck (or lack thereof) Igor's worst injury only had his arm in a cast. He's survived being blown from the South Pole to Rio.
  • Made of Explodium: All of downtown Rio according to Igor.
  • Mass Hypnosis: Raichan pulls this off on the whole of Rio with his Need Cards minus our protagonists (all for different reasons)
  • Meaningful Name: Raichan is revealed to have electric powers in combat.

  • Take Over the World: Raichan supposedly needs to destroy Igor's building to achieve his goal of world domination.

    Max Adventura: Is this your home, young adventurer?
    Igor: Look at the number. What do you think?
  • Villains Out Shopping: The villain, Raichan, is found on the same airplane as his enemies... but it's alright, he was just travelling to Los Angeles to watch E3.
  • With Friends Like These...: Can decend into this at times
    Igor: (after Carlos fired him out a mortar launcher) Why do I still talk to that guy...?
  • Word Salad Title: The title is a mashup of the names Vinicius, Igor and Antonio, even though only the first two are actual characters. Nobody named Antonio is ever mentioned at all.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: The Master Chief
