Ferryman is a video game series that was owned by LucasArts from 1997 til 2012, and Krome Studios since 2016.

Tropes

  • A Day in the Limelight: Kaylia Dawkins eventually got her spin-off franchise.
  • Adorkable: Ferryman is this.
  • Adsurd Phobia:
    • Ferryman is revealed to have a fear of fish.
    • Reese is revealed to have a fear of goats.
  • Badass Adorable: Ferryman and Kaylia.
  • Best Friends: Ferryman has three.
    • Ferryman and Lake
    • Ferryman and Pacos
    • Ferryman and Kaylia
  • Dark and Troubled Past: During her youth, Kaylia tragically lost her parents (and potientlly her family) to an army of evil Snapperclaws. This eventually led to a tearful Kaylia to run away to the real world, where she would become an action girl we know today.
  • Darker and Edgier:
    • The Kaylia games are shown to be quite darker than the usual Ferryman games, due to TBD.
    • Ferryman and Kaylia vs. The Snapperclaws is, if not, the darkest Ferryman installment to date due to TBD.
  • Does Not Like Spam: 
    • It is revealed that Kaylia does not like any chocolates.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Ferryman and Lake are pretty close friends despite him being a skeletial creature while Lake is a human.
    • Same can be said for Ferryman and Kaylia.
  • Skirts, Dresses and Gowns: 
    • Reese Raini loves to wear skirts, especially her signature ankle denim skirt. However, she does tend to wear pants while exercising or sleeping.
    • Kaylia wears a sweatskirt.
  • Tragic Hero: Kaylia is this, since her parents (and presumingly her family) were killed in front of her, resulting to a tearful Kaylia to escape to the real world to be safe from the Snapperclaw packs, eventually becoming an action girl to avenge her parents' death.
  • Tsundere: Kaylia, despite mainly being badass and kinda harsh, shows her sweet side at times.
  • What Do You Mean, It's For Kids?: Despite being a family-friendly series, it does tend to have darker moments.
    • Ferryman and Kaylia vs. The Snapperclaws is the saddest, and also the darkest Ferryman entry to date. [so dark that we make it PG-13?]
    • While it is confirmed that Ferryman is actually created for kids and family, the first four games were rated T due to the use of skeletons and some intense action.

YMMV

  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Kaylia Dawkins is considered to be a non-skeleton popular character of the series. She got so popular that she ended up getting a spin-off on her own.
  • Fandom Rivalry:
    • Fans of The Book of Life and Coco do not go along with Ferryman fans very well due to similar concepts and TBD.
    • [Steven Universe]
    • [The Nutshack for obvious reasons]
    • [Ivie Scott, at first extent]
  • Friendly Fandoms:
    • Ferryman fans are in good terms with that of The Face Paint World Life, Kodiak: The Dog Timestopper, and Peanut Butter & Jelly Coffee, mainly since their creator, Diana Lake-Quinn, is Elisha's wife.
    • Fans of this and Ty the Tasmanian Tiger has a rather healthy relationship with each other.
    • [since it was originally LucasArts prior to the Disney acquistance, Star Wars]
    • [Buzz on Maggie, since Polsky created the first Ferryman show]
    • [Doug, with one of the reasons involving both of them transferred to an another company]
    • Despite the rivalry, non-toxic fans of The Book of Life and Coco get along with fans of this very well.
    • Fans of this and Poppin' Face Paints adore each others' series, since Elisha created both of them.
    • [Myth of the Monkey King?]
    • [Ivie Scott, at later extent]
    • [Me and Sparky]
  • No-Yay Shipping: 
    • [Lake x Blake due to it being incest, and Lake is confirmed to be a lesbian]
    • [Lake x Ferryman, due to it being considered zoocest and the fact Ferryman is a skeleton]

Trivia

  • Big Name Fan:
    • [Diana Uhlman, besides the fact she is Elisha's wife]
    • [Genndy Tartakovsky?]
    • [George Lucas, even when Ferryman is now Krome Studios]
