Wakfu: The Animated Series is a French animated television series produced by Ankama Animation, based on the video game Wakfu. The first season of 26 episodes began airing on 30 October 2008, and new episodes would continue to air into January 2010 on France 3. The show is animated with Adobe Flash software; all the production is done in France except the special episodes "Noximilien l'Horloger" and "Ogrest, la Légende", both produced in Japan. The series is directed by Anthony "Tot" Roux, and character design is directed by Xavier "Xa" Houssin and Kim "Tcho" Etinoff.[1] During the London MCM Expo, the first two episodes were shown for the first time in English. A spin-off called Mini-Wakfu, which features humorous shorts with characters depicted in super deformed style, has aired since September 2009. The special episode "Noximilien l'Horloger", which tell the origins of the main antagonist, Nox, was produced in Japan, and features a radically different art style made by the same team of animators who worked on Kaiba and Kemonozume. The episode was directed by Eunyoung Choi with Masaaki Yuasa on character design. A Kickstarter campaign to produce an English-language dub of the series was launched in January 2014. [2]

Yugo
Voiced by: Fanny Bloc (French), Barbara Scaff (English test dub), Jules de Jongh (English dub)
Yugo is a 12-year-old Eliatrope who recently discovered his powers, and is on a mission to find his true family. He has lived with his adoptive father Alibert, working alongside him at his inn, and has no memories of his real family. He has the ability to summon teleportation portals by rotating his hand in a circular motion and throwing them to where he would like to appear. As the series progresses, he learns other abilities, such as moving at high speeds and creating beams from his portals. Near the end of Season two, it's revealed that he is the King of the Eliatropes. In the Special Episodes following the second season, Yugo is shown to have not aged in 6 years since the quest of the Crimson Claws, a fact that depresses him as he wishes to be able to court Amalia, but fears that his child like appearance would hinder any chance of a serious relationship with her. The finale shows Yugo is able to utilize the 6 Eliatrope Dofus to attain godly power in an effort to defeat Ogrest but doing so costs him his brother's friendship and nearly destroys the world.

The Special Episodes 6 years after season two show Amalia has taken her mother's position as Queen of the Sadida and her forced marriage to Count Harebourg of Frigost begins the story. Though she initially accepts his proposal, she voids the agreement after learning the Count planned to use the Sadida forests as a fuel source for his kingdom.

He is questing with Yugo as repayment for Yugo's rescuing him from Rubilax's possession. As the series progresses, he falls in love with Evangelyne and she with him.

Junior
A pig-like mole creature called a dhreller, which are said to be usual pets of Enutrofs. When it started to tag along, Ruel would try to drive it away.

Flopin is voiced by Karl-Line Heller (French), Julie-Ann Dean (English dub)
The twin children of Sir Percedal of Sadlygrove and Evangelyne, Elely is the daughter and is as wild and unpredictable as her father, while Flopin is the son and is as calm and cool as his mother, and is equally skilled with a wrist-mounted crossbow. When their parents and the other members of the Brotherhood were held hostage by Count Harebourg, they stormed the palace to rescue them. Flopin used his mom's bow to help free the Brotherhood while Elely merged with Rubilax to give them a fighting chance, with their fighting skills impressing their parents.

Antagonist[edit]

Main[edit]

Nox
Voiced by: Benjamin Pascal (French), Arthur Bostrom (English dub)
The main villain of the first season. A Xelor with twisted and obsessive motives. At the beginning of season one he encounters Grougaloragran in the guise of a human and is initially surprised by his high levels of Wakfu, Nox is swiftly immobilized and has since been searching for Grougaloragran on his travels, as well as any other large sources of Wakfu to absorb. Nox quickly proves to be a dangerous enemy and often speaks with an insane-sounding giggle at the end of each sentence. It is revealed early on that he needs a large quantity of Wakfu for an item known as the Eliacube, which in his insanity, he believes is alive, and that it speaks to him. He plans to use the Wakfu to go back in time and undo a great wrong that he has done, where because of this he sees everything he does at this present time as reversible and doesn't hesitate to kill anyone in his way, eventually going after the Tree of Life; however, killing the Tree of Life, would effectivley wipe out the entire Sadida race as They share the same life-force as the Tree. He appears to have had a family at one time, as evidenced by his constant mention of them. In the end, despite absorbing Wakfu for over 200 years he was only able to go back 20 minutes in time; and upon discovering this he falls to his knees and grieves at the fact he will never be able to save his family. His last words are a farewell to Yugo before teleporting away...No longer supported by the Eliacube, or Nox's will to live, his body withers and turns to dust by his family's grave. His past was revealed in a special episode, where he used to be a kind well muscular father figure named Noximilien Coxen with a flair for inventing and great skills as a Horologist. He was a good father and loved his wife and children more than anything, but was depressed at the fact he could not provide financially for his family, often having to negotiate with a man over his debt. While playing with his family on the beach, Igol runs away and discovers the cave that held the Eliacube. Noximilien takes it to his workshop and tinkers with it, amazed at the possibilities the device has, he becomes obsessed with researching the cube to the point of abandoning everything else. His health deteriorates and he hints that he no longer sleeps; these serve to degrade his body to a skeletal state. His family also leaves him; by the time he leaves his workshop to present his work to his wife, his home is shown to be barren and dilapidated, and a note shows that his wife has moved to live with her sister, telling him to come join them if he's ever ready. Before he receives the chance, he is told they have perished in a flood in their new home. In a desperate state, he plunges deeper into his research, seeking a means to turn back time and correct his mistake. This obsession drives him increasingly insane, eventually creating the main antagonist seen in the Wakfu series. With his past revealed, becomes more of a sympathetic villain.
Marama, Frisco and Tartufo (I, II and III)
Three of Nox's minions, which he refers to as his "favourites." They are first seen during his fight with Grougaloragran and...although their exact nature is unknown, they appear to be a mummified Cra, Feca, and Sacrier, and possess most of those classes' respective powers. They are all destroyed in the final battle. Defeated by Adamaï and Yugo, Marama is finally destroyed by Raze-time; Frisco and Tartufo are destroyed by Amallia.
Weedkilios
Nox's minion, and a Sadida analog to I, II, and III. His appearance is very different, being that of a dead and decayed Sadida. His eyes are sunken and lifeless, his limbs are emaciated, and his upper body appears to be supported only by a black, spine-like structure. Much of his apparent bulk seems to come from his wood armor. he is frozen by Evangelyne and destroyed by Amallia.
XII Raze-time
Appears to be a large, boxy clockwork robot created by Nox, and one of his most powerful weapons. Before being confronted by the main characters, it devastated a large section of the Sadidas' forest with its "stasis blasts." He was deactivated for good when Nox's clock is destroyed.
Igol
A hyena-like Bow Wow (species of dog in that world) that served Nox. Igol can travel at extremely fast speeds (most likely given to him by his control collar) and has the ability to run on water to get from island to island when traveling over-sea. He can also inhale so deeply that he creates a vacuum. It is revealed Igol was previously a pet owned by a little girl who is later revealed to have been Nox's daughter, who drowned due to Ogrest's tears along with the rest of his family. A little Osamodas girl named Lotie that resembled her caused Igol to change his ways, and soon he was freed from Nox's control and now lives with her. She also calls him Crazy-Eyes. In the prequel he was drawn as a dog. This is because Igol is a Bow Wow by species, a type of dog analogue in the Wakfu universe.
Qilby
Voiced by: Erik Colin (French), Arthur Bostrom (English dub)
Qilby is the main antagonist of season two and the central villain of the series overall. He was accidentally summoned from the blank dimension when Yugo tried to harness the power of the Eliacube, when he comes to the world of Twelve he explains the origins of his species (through half-truths) and sends Yugo on a quest to acquire the Dofus (dragon egg) of his sister dragon, Shinonome. His true plan is eventually revealed – that the quest was largely to distract Yugo so he could regain his power, steal back the Eliacube and then absorb the Wakfu of the planet to power his ship so he can continue to explore the Krozmos (the process would destroy the planet). While originally quiet, friendly and softspoken his personality changes drastically when he fuses with the Eliacube becoming cruel, sadistic, maniacal and manipulative. It is unknown whether this is a result of the Eliacube warping his personality or if it is his true colors. He has all the same Powers as Yugo though many of them are more advanced versions, as well as an assortment of other Wakfu abilities, he also has full knowledge of the Eliacube and its workings (Nox spent 200 years just trying to figure out how to work it) makes him even more dangerous then Nox, he is also able to remember his past lives which is unique for his species and implied to be the source of his knowledge and madness, which he later stated was a curse. He is unquestionable the most powerful and dangerous villain in the series so far, with the possible exception of Rushu.

ShuShus'[edit]

Rushu
Voiced by: Marc Alfos (French)
The tyrannical king of all Shushus. A 10 meter tall fiery demon, he is in another world, one that has mostly been destroyed down to rock and ash. He is looking for a way to enter the World of Twelve, so full of light and life, that he and his demons can keep destroying things. His powers are said to be equal to that of a god and include, super strength, pyrokinesis, telekinesis and others as well. In the season 2 finale his true form was revealed to be a grayish black humanoid with a single eye (it was said his fiery form is just for show). During the battle at Crimson Claws archipelago he was sent back to the ShuShu realm.
Anathar
Voiced by: Antoine Tome (French)
A Shushu with the power to copy the ability of anyone he touches. Originally a bound shushu, he was released by his guardian and refused to be unsummoned. After being freed by the Brotherhood of Tofu, Remington releases him to distract the heroes; he quickly realizes this is a bad idea. Yugo uses his portal magic to attack Anathar, which he is then able to use much more powerfully than Yugo, such as generating a hundred portals at once. He is so powerful, he even opened up a portal into the Shushu realm. Through his actions, it would seem this power has a time limit for how long he can use it. He participates in the final battle in posseding Adamaï against Yugo, but he is betrayed and threatened of destruction by Qilby, he decides to leave him to take care of Adamai and Yugo, Qilby accepts and spares Anathar. His final fate is unknown, but it is possibly that he is escaped and hid somewhere. Anathar and Ombrage are the only Shushus who are not return in ShuShu realm.
Ombrage (Shadowfang in the English dub)
Voiced by: Malvina Germain (French)
A Shushu imprisoned in a ring, she has the power to steal a person's shadow, which appears to represent the target's soul, and turns them into a ghoul. However, she is unable to do this if the target lacks any darkness in their heart. She is first met in a ruined town, where she has taken over her guardian's spirit, who goes by the name Vampyro. After being defeated, her guardian swears never to fall for her tricks again. She returns in season 2 as an ally of Rubilax. Once Percedal is returned to his body, though, she is left behind, ignored by her guardian. In the closing scenes, however, an unknown figure picks her up. Ombrage and Anathar are the only Shushus who are not return in ShuShu realm.

Other[edit]

Vampyro
Voiced by Benjamin Pascal (French)
Formerly a Shushu Guardian named Wagnar, he fell in love with a demon named Ombrage, who was sealed in a magic ring. Wagnar wore the ring that Ombrage was trapped in and her demonic powers transformed the guardian into "Vampyro", causing him to steal the souls of the townspeople to form an army of ghouls. When Yugo's team visits Katrepat town, Vampyro ambushes them with this army of ghouls and kidnaps Evangelyne in order to give Ombrage a body to inhabit. When transformed into Vampyro, he has an unfortunate allergy to Tofus, which eventually becomes his undoing. Afterwards he realized she was merely using him, and swore to never fall for her trickery again.
Ombrage returns in Season 2, now wielded by Rubilax in Percedal's body.
Breadnought
Voiced by: Elisabeth Fargeot (French)

She wreaks havoc on the village while riding atop a golem made of giant pieces of bread. Yugo takes on Breadnought and nearly wins, but she escapes before he claims victory. At the climax of the Baker's tournament, the Breadnought is revealed to be Xav's father's assistant, also known as Chouquette, who wanted her master to win the contest as she was in love with him.
Gonnard the Great (Rich McDeek in the English dub)
Voiced by: Serge Faliu (French), Eric Meyers (English dub)
A supposed herald who visits Yugo and his friends during their stay at Xav the Baker's home, informing them of a gold-robbery crime wave.

He is defeated when Ruel tricks him into eating chocolate coins.
Remington Smisse
Voiced by: David Kruger (French), Eric Meyers (English dub)
The first villain of Season 2, he is a collector of Shushu and is able to wield many of them without losing control over them. He is extremely sly and cunning, always trying to gain the upper hand through deceptive means and likes to play dirty. His deceptiveness sometimes becomes his own undoing; during a fight with Evangelyne over the possession of Percedal -- who was trapped in Rubilax's sword body -- he falls off the edge of a building, hanging upside down at the end of a rope. He promises Eva that he won't trick her if she saves him, however, when he gets to the ledge, he tries to kill her with a sword Shushu. Eva dodges the attack, and Remington ends up destroying the ledge he was hanging onto and plummets to his apparent death. However, it is revealed that he did survive the fall in Episode 8 of Season 2. He meets Eva again in a prison where he releases an extremely powerful Shushu named Anathar. Later on, he, Sadlygrove and Yugo are taken to the Shushu world. He is left behind while the others escape so he could save his brother, Grany. Remington and Grany are later seen as Rushu's personal slave/masseur, until they escape through the Shushu invasion portal. At the end of the Battle of Crimson Claw Archipelago, Remington takes Eva hostage in exchange for Rubilax (in sword form), but is defeated and both are knocked in the sea, presumed to be dead. However, they're last seen sailing into the sunset in a wrecked submarine.

On January 20, 2014, Ankama launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce an English-language dub of the series for release on region-free Blu-ray Disc in English speaking territories. The campaign had a target of $80,000 Canadian Dollars to dub the first season, with stretch goals to produce dubs of the second season and various original video animation episodes.[4] The campaign's goal to dub Season 1 was met on January 21, 2014, and the campaign's goal to dub Season 2 was met on January 30, 2014. The Kickstarter trailer featured Ben Diskin as Percedal and Cassandra Lee as Evangelyne.
