Hägar the Horrible is a classic comic strip about a red-bearded Viking. He is married to Helga, who is a formidable woman with bigger horns on her helmet than he has on his. The rest of Hägar's family consists of his young son Hamlet, and a daughter called Honi who is just old enough to be The Ingenue. His best friend is a short guy called Lucky Eddie. This is a gag-a-day Strip set in Dark Age Europe covering both Viking invasions and sieges (he regularly harasses castles) and Hägar's home life.

Tropes used in Hagar the Horrible include:
