* Pickles is the member of the band who's most often portrayed as TheAlcoholic, having been drinking most of his life. There was even an entire episode (Rehabklok) that focused on his alcoholism. Being drunk is also sometimes called being ''[[StealthPun pickled]].''

* It's actually a really good thing for Toki he [[spoiler: dropped his father under the ice]]. If they had been in the mountaintop house at the time the rest of Dethklok set off the avalanche, if Toki had been just a minute faster [[spoiler: and hadn't slipped on the top step]], the Wartooth men would have been buried under the weight of the snow and even possibly the debris from the collapsing house.

* Had Toki lost the guitar duel against Skwisgaar, it would have been a lot worse than just not getting in the band. Toki was, according to his lyrics, homeless and wandering before meeting Dethklok--if they didn't accept him in to the band, he'd have to go back to a life on the streets, in a place where he didn't know anyone or how to survive. Worse, if it got bad enough, his only other option would be to return in disgrace to the parents who beat and damn near killed him as a child.

Added DiffLines:

* Nathan's introduction shows him sipping a drink from a comically small mug. This might not just be for comedic effect, though--Nathan did say he wanted to "make coffee metal...blacker than the blackest black". If we assume that's how he takes his coffee, then it must be ''extremely'' bitter-tasting, as the darker the roast, the bitterer the beans. Nathan's cup is just a smaller espresso cup, which is already served in small portions to combat both the bitterness of the espresso and the caffeine content of the drink.

* The Season 4 finale sheds a new light on the Tribunal saying "The Dead Man!" over and over in Doublebookedklok... [[spoiler: Salacia realized that Ofdensen was "The Dead Man" from the prophecy!]]

* The season 2 finale has the infamous Deth Spiders scene, where Ofdensen [[spoiler: gets beaten to death by the Metal Masked Assassin.]] He's got an army of employees at his disposal, so what was the point of trying to outrun the MMA? Simple: Ofdensen wasn't trying to save his life, he was trying to ''lead the Assassin away from the band.''
* The LyricalDissonance of Abigail's Lullaby in The Doomstar Requiem, and Toki's peaceful smile despite the high levels of {{Gorn}} could simply be written off as BlackComedy combined with Toki's own clueless nature, but FridgeBrilliance sets in when you recall that Toki is in a '''death metal''' band. Not only that, said band is also the only family he's ever known. Lyrics about violent torture and cannibalism wouldn't just not bother Toki, they would actually ''comfort'' him, because [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming they remind him of his beloved brothers.]]

* Skiwsgaar and Toki making fun of acoustic guitars such as calling them "grandpa guitars" has some truth to it: acoustic guitars were used way before electric guitars were invented, so that makes them ancient in the eyes of some death metal musicians even though people still use them in the present day.

** FridgeBrilliance: They don't, but Ofdensen wouldn't want the band to spend money they didn't have to; having a record label to foot the bill and provide deadlines for the boys to keep producing music keeps them from squandering their own money.

*** But you'd think that the attack on Dethklok by the Metal Masked Assassin, Crozier and Ravenwood at the end of Season 1 would jog his memory. Even if he wasn't there, he probably would have been told. If not, he was definitely there during the Tribunal/Revengencers' siege of Mordhaus at the end of season 2 - surely the sight of Salacia mindrapeing general Crozier would have jogged his memory?

*** Knubbler doesnt know about the Tribunal, he was recruited by Crozier, so he probably assumes that it was just the U.S Goverment looking for a way to control the most powerful group on the planet. With all the crap Deathklok deals with on a daily basis, he probably doesnt think it was anything out of the ordinary.
* The Metal Masked Assassin was right near Ofdensen when he got arrowed by the Teenager, so shouldn't he also have witnessed Salacia brainwashing Crozier?
** FridgeBrilliance: Being half-dead allowed Ofdensen to see the half-man when no one else could.
** More FridgeBrilliance: The Assassin and the Teenager are both wearing masks, and Ofdensen's glasses were off. Ofdensen is the only person who saw him with his own unobstructed eyes.

* In the episode "Dethcarraldo", we learn about Nathan's grandmother, who was shipwrecked with her husband Walter in the Amazon where they discovered the cannibalistic Yaneemango tribe. According to her, she "fell in lust" with Otoe, the tribe's chief and Nathan's biological grandfather. When you think about it, Nathan's relationship with Abigail is pretty similar to the story of his grandmother; in this case, Abigail was the subject of Pickles' crush in "Going Downklok, but she chose Nathan because her vibrator died. Now take the song "Bloodlines" into account. How is this all related? Simple: ''Nathan repeated the actions of his ancestors in taking a woman who "belonged" to someone else, which effectively tore his band apart.''

* Nathan's vomiting up blood and his liver surgery in "Mordland" seems like a one-time thing since it was never mentioned again, but there's the revelation that he had gone through ''hundreds'' of liver transplants, which implies that the blood puke and subsequent surgeries were a recurring problem for Nathan. As someone who once took health classes, this troper has learned that Native Americans are the most vulnerable to a large variety diseases and are less tolerant (body-wise) of alcohol. Combined with months upon months of heavy drinking, drug consumption, unprotected sex, and wild parties, it's a wonder that Nathan is still walking and singing, much less standing!

* As the show progresses, it becomes more and more obvious that they're all connected to, or are themselves, some kind of CosmicHorror, and eventually discovering the Church of the Black Klok. Think back, to the very first episode, the very first scene: ''Jean-Pierre is praying in the name of Dethklok''.

* Nathan giving a hurricane a dumb name like "Scrambles" in the episode Dethgov may have been RuleOfFunny, but it also was a MeaningfulName in a literal sense, considering the sheer amount of damage hurricanes often do whenever they hit land (Hurricane Katrina for instance).

* How is Jean-Pierre even alive? First he gets chopped to bits, then he lives a nightmare of constant pain as the bits he was chopped into get poked and annoyed by the band, then he gets sewn back together wrong, and he ''still lives''. This is Metalocalypse, where even the must mundane accidents can kill hundreds, so how has he kept on for so long? Simple: The chefs are cursed. JP willingly kept his job after being directly told that all the previous chefs had been hideously killed in the line of duty. The curse wasn't stronger than his loyalty, and it broke.
