You are in a dungeon. Also present in this dungeon are monsters and treasure. You have been sent on a holy quest quest[[note]]Well, holy if youíre a cleric, maybe. Which you may be some of the time.[[/note]] to kill the monsters and steal the treasure. Unfortunately, everyone else in your party is trying to do the same thing.



The art in the original game and many of the numerous supplements and variants is by Creator/JohnKovalic, and while other artists have been brought in on occasion, Kovalicís style is often considered a large factor in the gameís success.

* MooksAteMyEquipment

to:

* MooksAteMyEquipmentMontyHaul: The game is very much a parody of the Monty Haul style of tabletop RPG. Characters usually end up dripping with powerful equipment and using it to slaughter godlike foes.
* MooksAteMyEquipment: Many of the monsters eliminate bits of character equipment if they win their fights.

** The Lich in ''Adventure Time'' is a more traditional version. Not only must Players face the Lich alone, but every other player is forbiden from interfering with combat in any way. No enchancers, no one shots, nothing.

* GeniusBonus: The Fur Slippers (Now with 100% less glass) in Grimm Tidings. Cinderella's slippers were originally fur in the French; their being "glass" was a mistranslation in one of the earlier English translations that stuck.

* FracturedFairyTale: ''Munchkin Grimm Tidings'' is based on classic fairy tales, with twists.



* GoddamnedBats: Invoked; adding Bat type enemies into a fight already including one is a free action in Munchkin Bites. With some nasty luck, that level 2 Bat monster just became a horde of bats, combined level 29. Bat Masterson from The Good, The Bad, and The Munchkin counts, by the way. Undead in many versions, Hong Kong in ''Munchkin Fu'', 'Goths in ''Munchkin Cthulhu'', Santas in ''Munchkin Axe Cop'' and Holiday Munchkin, Goblins in ''Pathfinder Munchkin'', Sharks in ''Munchkin Booty'' (which, naturally, includes [[AmoralAttorney the lawyer]] and [[http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/sharks/ similar professions]]), Dragons from ''Munchkin Dragons'' (which includes creatures with Dragon, Serpent, or Wyrm in their nanes), and Demons from ''Adventure Time'' work the same way.
