Added DiffLines:

* [[NamesToRunAwayFrom/NamesEndingInTh NamesToRunAwayFrom: NamesEndingInTh]]. If a player fight's against a monster whose name ends with -goth, other players can add their -goth monsters to the fight. This has [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant nothing to do with]] the {{Goth}} culture but is derived from H.P. Lovecrafts [[BlobMonster shoggoths]].

** Due to how the rules in Munchkin work, it is possible to lose levels quite fast. Especially with the Dungeons expansion, as one of the dungeons rules that EVERY player has their gender swapped and must be adressed by the gender-swapped version of their real-life name! If a player fails to do so once, they lose a level. Forget to do it a few times? Wave your chance of winning goodbye, unless you can make the other players screw up too.

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

** The true InfinityPlusOneSword is the PlotDevice from Super Munchkin. When played, it says "You are now winning the combat by 1, no matter how much you were losing by before." If, in theory, you were losing by infinity, this would actually provide a literal Infinity Plus One bonus. (Of course, people can still play more cards afterwards to make you lose anyways.)

Added DiffLines:

* LoadsAndLoadsOfRaces / MassiveRaceSelection: Munchkin has loads of races by now, due to its many expansions and editions which can all be combined:
** The original had [[HumansAreAverage humans]] (the standard-race for every player), [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame dwarfs]], [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]] and [[Main/{{Hobbits}} halflings]]
** The expansion packs gave [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orcs]], [[LizardFolk lizard guys]], [[OurCentaursAreDifferent centaurs]] and [[OurGnomesAreWeirder gnomes]].
** Munchkin Bites added [[ChangelingTale changelings]], [[FurAgainstFang vampires, werewolves]] and, with the Pants Macabre expansion, [[Main/{{Mummy}} mummies]]
** Munchkin [[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Conan]] added Cimmerians, Stygians, Kushite and Zamorians
** Munchkin Legends had the standard dwarfes, elves and halflings and added [[FaunsAndSatyrs fauns]]
** [[RecycledInSpace Star Munchkin]] added [[Main/{{Cyborg}} cyborgs]], [[CatFolk felines]], [[Main/{{Mutants}} mutants]] and, with the ''The Clown Wars'' expansion, [[LittleGreenMen bugs]]
** And all of those races can be combined with the [[HalfHumanHybrid Half Breed card]], so a character can easily be half-dwarf, half-cyborg or half-Cimmerian, half-Faun.
