Vainqueur now has a Webtoon adaptation!
Vainqueur Knightsbane is your average dragon: a giant, fire-breathing lizard who loves to take naps on his golden hoard, kidnap princesses for fun, and make the life of adventurers miserable. Vainqueur's only pleasure in life is to watch his treasure get bigger, one coin at a time.
So when a would-be thief turned unwilling minion tells him about "classes," "levels," and "quests," Vainqueur wonders if maybe, just maybe, he should consider a career change.
After all, why bother hunting monsters for free when you can get paid for it?

I'm having a lot of fun with the story, find it a little too male chauvinist (which I understand is the point of the MC).
Vainqueur's character is hilarious and well written.
Overall a great light read.
i enjoyed every moment of this story keep of the good work and ty
A solid story, built to poke good fun at all the different fantasy cliche's you can shake a stick at. Lots of other reviews have covered what's actually in the story, so I'm going to
The author's writing style is extremely solid and flows well. As a humorous story, the author's tone keeps everything lighthearted and fun even during the more serious moments. Little to no grammer mistakes, at least none that are glaringly obvious. So, I'm happy to say that its very easy on the eyes, and its good to sit down and chuckle a bit.
All in all, this is a very solid story with little in the way of any weak points, and some very solid strong points. Mainly, the characters are fun to read about and the system along with its jokes is hilarious. A living dice that turned into a god and decides everything by having people roll it is the least of the amusing cast of characters. Demon lawyers, angel soul-insurance saleswoman, werewolf dating and just other silly situations that are a fun read.
Amusing and clever, with impressive power, Vainqueur the Dragon pulled me in right away. The personality of each character gives this good book a unique flair. The dragon is vain with an endearingly small attention span, and his minion does what he has to to get by.
You should give this a read if you're looking for a bit of humor with a very different MC in a gamelit. Among the best of RR.
A dragon versus sarcasm.
Yes, the answer is everyone, especially us the readers. ;-D
I want to overuse smileys, because this story makes me feel happy.
As the title says, hands down the funniest thing i have ever read, i dont belive anything will top it, when it comes to comedy.
regarding the style its pretty good, blue screen to highlight, system messages, italic when sarcasm, little details that make it even more enjoyable.
the grammar is pretty much with no errors, i think i have seen like one or two, but nothing that one cant get what is was meant..
The story is about a dragon who, when catching a thief, comes to know about how other races become stronger and wants to become an adventurer!, a dragon, a fricking adventurer!. Since people dont really want to deal with a dragon they let him!, they really let a damn dragon complete quests while destroying everything between him and his goals and gold, while recruiting minions along the way, as every dragon should!.
The characters are all pretty well done, of course the minor ones dont have much depth but still bring funny situations when they interact with each other. The main ones V&V are Victor "Minion" Dalton and Vainqueur Vnightsbane, a unfortunate person who became subordinate to a dragon and a dragon who cant seem to see more than gold, minions and food. While the dragon tries to increase the size of his hoard, Victor tries to make him not wage war with the rest of the world, and hopefully depend a little more in each other.
I recommend this fiction to everyone who looks for a fun read, and i would like to thank the author for bringing such a good read for all people to read.
The world building is wonderful with epic and funny revelation of the world at the end. The history of the world is comedic with the dragons obsession with gold. Vainqueur slowly learns to value his minions not just as emergency ration but as his priceless hoard.
Vainqueur and his interactions with the lich was pretty funny throughout the entire story with his hatred of lead.
Victor was a good character and his interactions with the dragon and him being high on mushrooms were quite funny. He got what he wanted at the end and became a good father for his many children.
Every character has their importance and none of them were forgotten at the end. I will be waiting for the arrival of the spin-off. And I wish to thank the author for blessing us with an amazing work of art.
The style like a game with the system compliments the story quite well. And I like the replacement of the word hell with happyland.
The grammar was quite flawless from my perspective. And minor mistakes were corrected through the comments.
Overall a very fun read. Would recommend for anyone who likes a little bit of comedy sprinkled in an adventure.
I enjoyed every second of it, all the jokes and references. Having a weakness for stories not taking themselves too serious, this one really scored a crit with me.
A cool idea, well thought out characters, a lot of jokes and references to our world, the LitRPG genre, TV and Roleplaying. I would give 6 out of 5 stars, but Vainqueur snatched the golden 6th right out of my hand...
Only story where an insane dragon establishes Ancapistan to save the baby gold coins from evils of taxation. Very pun-heavy and not serious at all. The grammar is barely above the level of a dragon that fell on his head a lot as a hatchling. Still a fun read if you like stories where dragons win.
This is the second time I've read through Vainqueur, and I still love it. It's what got me on RR and is still the best thing on it, despite heavy competition. I don't really know what to say other than its great, read it and then read Voids other works. Also it's a completed work so no waiting for chapters or the dreaded hiatus!
While this is ostensibly a world conquering progression litRPG the characters are what makes it work. V&V are such a refreshing pair and their evolution feels earnt, they feel like they are the same characters from start to finish even though they change considerably over time. The litRPG elements are fun and serve as a measure of success without being over the top and nitpicky, everything is set up well in advance and the story advances at a good pace, neither rushed nor dragging on.
I literally just reread this over 2 days and the only negative thing I can think of is that Void Herald hasn't written "2nd Edition, the Dalton Dynasty Campaign" yet.
All in all this is definitely my favourite litRPG and one of my favourite works of fiction, up there with things like Lord of the Rings.
Read it now.
