Secret of Mana Theater

From Academic Kids

Created by Jerry Koudelik, also known as Sprite Monkey, Secret of Mana Theater is a Sprite-based, Flash animated web comic that is a parody of Seiken Densetsu 2, which was called Secret of Mana in the United States. The comic debuted on May 15, 2002.


Main plot

The main character is Seth, who is the Mana Knight and is always messing up things. He grew up in Potos village, but is banished after pulling out the Mana Sword. He then reluctantly begins the quest to protect Mana from the Empire and Thanatos and has managed to survive despite many blows to the head and a completely foolish and gullible personality.

Along the way Seth meets Fawn, who is trying to save Dyluck, whom she loves. Fawn is an extremely deft fighter but thinks of Seth as a complete wimp. We also meet Autumn, the sprite, who originally swindled Seth out of thousands of gold pieces along with the Dwarven Elder. After the Elder betrays her and is eaten by Tropicallo, Autumn joins Seth's group in the attempt to recover her memory and partially because she regrets deceiving Seth.

Seth receives hints about his quest from a divine stack of pancakes. As bizzare as this seems, it is a key point in Secret of Mana Theater.

In the game, Randi corresponds to Seth, Purim to Fawn, and Popoie to Autumn. In addition, although Popoie was male, the author saw the sprite as female so Autumn is female instead.



Seth is the Mana Knight. He is the fulfiller of an ancient prophecy which states that the Mana Knight will claim the Mana Sword and save the world. Seth is easily fooled, and quite naive; however, he is also trusting and very good-hearted.


Fawn is a young noblewoman out to save her boyfriend Dyluck from the witch Elinee. Her attitude of violent coercion and tough love does not sit well with Seth's blissful absentmindedness.


Autumn is a sprite child. She meets Seth in the Dwarf Village. Due to a rather unfortunate encounter with a Midge Hammer, Autumn is indefinitely midged, and initially joins Seth to find a cure.

Supporting characters


Jema, knight of the Republic and hero of the resistance, has to put up with Seth's rather odd antics. He has a condencending personality that does not fit well with Seth.


Not much is known about Pancake. Pancake is a divine being that aids Seth in his journey. In a more classical setting, such as an epic, Pancake would be considered the 'deus ex machina' of Secret of Mana Theater; however, his role in the story is quite limited.


The token evil witch. Elinee hypnotizes Fawn's boyfriend, General Dyluck, and keeps him as a slave. Elinee is quite important to the story, even if she doesn't get much screen time. Over 150 episodes of Secret of Mana Theater have been spent chasing her.
