Vainqueur the Dragon

Original ONGOING Adventure Comedy Fantasy Satire Anti-Hero Lead LitRPG Multiple Lead Characters Non-Human lead Strong Lead

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?

Stands out from the pack -- as a Dragon should!

Good adventure and comedy. I'm pleased to find this story. Highly enjoyable. One of the fictions on this site that I can unreservedly recommend to friends and family. I'm only ten chapters in, but I want to keep reading. It's not a chore to get through, unlike many I've tried on this site, and I've chuckled aloud several times while reading. 


  • Unique twist on a tired genre
  • Entertaining and at times genuinely clever
  • Flows well and is easy to read
  • Fully fleshed out level and class system that's actually integrated into the world, rather than feeling like an add-on
  • Vainqueur!


  • Grammar and spelling trips up every once in a while
  • PoV is not very consistent; this may simply be my preference, but the story works best when it's limited omniscience, 3rd person 
  • Character development is a bit trite/stale
  • Overall Score

Nice funny a good read

I haven't had so much fun reading a story in a long 6 months and this was good 

Not really much of a review but if your looking for a good laf read this and so far I dont have many negatives to say about this only 1 and that is that the dragon is a little dim in the head

Amusing piece of Dragon Litrpg

If you read the blue Mage raised by Dragons and liked the Humour you are gonna like this one as well. 


Lighthearted approach to a grossly overpowered being gaining access to the „system“ 



  • Overall Score

I just spent the last hour laughing so hard that my ribs are aching, my throat is sore, and I can barely read my eyes are so teary.  This is one of the funniest things I've read, and I read a lot.  Strongly recommended - when finished, I expect this to become an all time favorite novel (please, please finish/continue it).  If I could give six stars I would.

A wonderful story about what happens when a dragon is introduced to the System and the concept of being paid to kill and loot things. A few minor typos here and there. A fun, lighthearted read.

Bonus points for having a non-reincarnated dragon main character.

A Story filled with laughs and comedic moments and filled with characters who make you laugh. The dragon especially is a extremely fun character. The Story so far is very entertaining and am just waiting for more

If gold is most valuable thing for a Dragon's hoard

Then this story is gold for my hoard. 

Has a good twist for LitRPG subgenre. Characters are funny and feel fleshed out if they are not fodder. 

Grammar wise there wasn't any mistake that I could find or notice.

Author's style is attention-grabbing. 

So go on and read this story and have some fun. 

Also please consider joining as a minion.

It's actually rather funny - which is always a rare find. Even has internal logic, as far as such things go. 

Definitely recommended!
