The Main Cast of WTF Comics

A Fantasy Webcomic, created by Jeremy Waller in 2003 (and still running*), based on the world of the well-known MMORPG, EverQuest. WTF Comics is a shining example of well-delivered Fantasy Story, with a lot of comedy, fun, action, and drama.

The story starts with Annashi, a young druid girl who decides to go on an adventure to find her long lost father with one of her father's old friends, a Grumpy Iksar Warrior, Straha Ironscale. Then, as the number of their friends and enemies gather along the way, and the little 2-man party grows ever larger, the story slowly turns into an Epic Fantasy tale of a group of adventurers, each of them there for different reasons, but fighting together against the forces of the Nebulous Evil Organisation "The Vision".

  • Unfortunately the comic has not been updated since 2016. This page, meanwhile, needs some Wiki Magic Love.

This series contains examples of:

  • Brain Food: Played straight and humorously played with/averted by the zombies in Kithicor Forest. Overlaps with Picky People Eater.
  • The Brute: Gorax, though he gets one-hand-smaller for a short time after his battle with Straha
  • Comically Missing the Point: Maguna tries to explain, via stick drawings, that Straha's powers were greater than they realized and might be limited only by his imagination. Straha (proving her point about his imagination) gets hung up on Maguna's art skills.
  • Cool Shades: Smoke's shades. They can even see the invisible.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Smoke, starting as a little pocket Monk with seemingly no real battle capabilities besides dodging things, until Nikisha stabs Anna in front of him, making him go "all out" in rage and annihilating an entire bridge of Mooks along with the bridge itself under them, nearly killing her too in the process.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Literally. Meldrath's machines are powered by human souls.
  • Don't Touch It, You Idiot!: Well, Smoke touches it. A lot...
  • Doom Magnet: Anna, just... Anna. As shown in this conversation:
    Feless: Dare I ask where our daughter is at the moment Straha?
    Straha: I left her with Anna and the Monk.
    Feless: What?! You left her with the girl you call the walking death magnet and the boy you just call idiot?!
    Straha: I hadn't quite thought about it in those terms, but yes...
  • Face–Heel Turn: Kiran starts off simply as the Unlucky Childhood Friend trying to get Anna home. However his complete inability to see her growth alongside his Fantastic Racism against Iksar causes him to refuse to believe Anna wants to continue traveling of her own will, and Straha must be tricking her. This view is furthered by The Vision, who ultimately end up playing on his fear of losing Anna and indoctrinate him. By the Plane of Knowledge arc he's decked out in full Vision gear. Though since Shade showed up he's been Out of Focus.
  • Fantastic Racism: Wood and High elves are 'good' races. Trolls and Iskar are 'evil' races, (despite many being rather nice). Obviously they hate each other.
  • Genki Girl: Xianle, the Ranger. Apparently, she spent a little too much time in the woods...
  • Girl on Girl Is Hot: The bartender at the Maiden's Fancy pretty much says this here.
  • Give Her A Normal Life: Straha's reason for giving up Kaitis, since she has the same abilities as him.
  • Ninja Pirate Robot Zombie: Cyborg Skeletons, Cyborg Harpies, Cyborg Minotaurs and everything in Meldrath's lab (including Meldrath himself).
  • Not What It Looks Like: Straha accidentally falling into the wrong hot spring at the wrong time, arriving in front of a naked Maguna and labeled as a pervert for all eternity
    • In a subversion, he's a reptile and she's a high elf, so he should have absolutely no motivation for ogling. In a double subversion, it has been hinted that she might be interested in him.
  • Nuke 'em: Vision mages can cast a minor local Armageddon
  • Oh, Crap!: Every time Smoke goes serious, most notably in this scene
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Straha, and the entire Iksar race
    • Technically, Iksar aren't related to dragons at all. They're lizardmen, which is basically like a furry race, but with scales instead.
  • Playing with Fire: Maguna, just.. Maguna. She has the name Flamedancer for a reason.
  • Physical God: Both Smoke and Shade are implied to be this. When using his powers, Smoke has been able to: Alter perceptions of time to teleport instantly, destroy objects nobody is capable of destroying, effortlessly beat scores of Vision soldiers, whom even the GMs couldn't hurt, revive the dead, travel to different dimensions and see the very fabric of time and space. Shade later shows that he's just as capable when he murders an entire train effortlessly, and beats Venril in seconds. When serious, neither can be touched by anything but each other.
Smoke: It's always the same... wherever I go, it's the same. People like you have no problem hurting the innocent to get at others... can't just come after who you really want. NO! You try to kill a kid who's only mistake was being a friend! Just leverage! A tool! Just like before, just like her! Well not again!
