Vainqueur the Dragon

by Void Herald

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?

this is not a joke. i do not have a 5 ton dragon who can melt steel beams with his breath looking over my shoulder. I am not a hostage. i do not need help. I DO NOT NEED HELP

welcome to the story of the second calamity of man. In this story, a dragon's human minion is extorted into making him rich beyond any of the other dragons. This human was never asked to be an isekai protagonist, but became one anyways because a sentient dice thought it would be funny to put a person who was evil on earth into a world who just overcame one calamity in a demon king, and now has a second one coming- the greatest of all dragons. 

I don't think i've ever laughed so hard as i have over the all the things Victor has to go through. Seriously. you need to pick this up. It'll make your day a little brighter.

Thank you Void, please write more chapters

Reviewed at: 22: The Meat is Life

The grammar, spelling, and general technical skill this story is written with do their job wonderfully- they make the story more understandable, flow better and let me just leap in, in addition to doing their basic job of simply not breaking flow or immersion.

Edited because I noticed some mistakes, can't give 5 stars


Void has a certain flair to their works, it feels like a flight of fancy, yet my feet are still on some sort of surface. Kind of like jet-skiing or windsurfing. Which I like.


Despite being a whimsical, light hearted (in tone) comedy there is an emergent (background?) plot. It is emerging very tastefully and organically in my opinion, the hints are intriguing and what has been revealed captivating. I like the shape of the plot and think it adds a dimension to the story without taking away from its premise and style.


Finally,  the characters.  I love reading the character interactions and delight in the personalities on display- both of which fit in to the story's feel by being super-realistic whimsical caricatures of people that could exist.

Thank you Void. To anyone else reading this, try a few chapters

Hilarious Story with Great Premise

Reviewed at: 33: BFF

Vainqueur the Dragon is an extremely funny story with a unique and interesting premise.

The premise of the story is that a human thief in a fantasy world who happens to be reincarnated from Earth wakes up a dragon in a cave, and accidently allows it to discover the level and clss system of the world, which dragons had been exempt from prior to that point. The story then follows the misadventures of the two.

The strongest points of the story are the humor, style, and story choices. The humor is very well woven into the setting, dialogue, and character interactions. The humor is enchanced by some subversions of expectations and satirical takes on standard fantasy world elements. 

The story has largely moved in a positive direction, advancing the plot while taking time for comedy and worldbuilding, and avoiding the pitfall of getting tied up in its own jokes. 

The characters started off as very fun to follow but largely two-dimensional. However, the story has done a good job fleshing out the characters as it goes, and the characters have definitely become more complex and given further room to develop. 

As this point in the story, I am confident in saying that this story has not made the same mistakes as so many of its kind do and never advancing beyond its initial gimmick. This story has had its plot organically develop in a great direction, and I can't wait to see where the author takes it.

I would strongly recommend this story.

Great story, humorous writing and characters. A very enjoyable read.


The only critique I have is the book cover, I'm not very sure if it's licensed and I see no mentions or credit to the artist (Björn Lensig):

 EDIT: All is good now!

Just what I needed in a novel. Vanqueur, best dragon!

Is only matched by his ineptitude!

Our scaley MC is a dragon who has recently discovered the 'system' and loves gold. 

Becoming an adventurer enables him to gain gold for doing dragony things that's he wants to do anyway. Hilarity ensues!

I luv this freaking dragon.

Reviewed at: 25: The Demon King

I freaking love this crazy dragon, I know usually dragons aren't logical, but this one is so absurdly awesome that even the ilogycal things he says end up seeming to be logical.


He loves his hoard, but he loves getting princesses more.

Just loving this one.



I ain't a very good reviewer ain't I? 😅😅😅
