** Lyle Lanley is an unusual case-- it ''was'' implied that he may have been beaten to death by the angry residents of North Haverbrook in "Marge vs. the Monorail", but we never got any sort of confirmation. He pops back up mysteriously when you unlock the monorail quests, then mysteriously vanishes not long after.

The premise of this game is that the player must help Homer Simpson avenge Springfield after a meltdown at the Nuclear Power Plant [[StuffBlowingUp causes the entire city to be destroyed]], stripping it bare of all buildings and citizens (excluding Homer and a huge heap of radioactive waste). As you progress through the game and avenge iconic Springfield locations, such as the Simpsons' family home and the Kwik-E-Mart, you also unlock more of the townsfolk, e.g. Ned Flanders with the Flanders' home and Principal Skinner with Springfield Elementary.

** During the Halloween update, whilst doing his ''Trick-or-Treating'' task, Martin would dress as a fairy. Another outfit has him dressing like [[{{WesternAnimation/Frozen}} Elsa]].

** Let's not forget Matt Groening himself! His dialogue reflects his own attitude towards his celebrity with lines such as "pull my beard, I've heard it's good luck!" and "Sure, I would love to draw you a sketch!"
* ChekhovsGag: In an episode tie-in, Comic Book Guy says "Well, I don't have a Japanese girlfriend yet -- SPOILER ALERT!" 9 months later, Kumiko is brought into the game, and dates (and later, marries) him.

** In the level update that added Gina into the game, near the end of her questline, she bids farewell to Bart, saying "Until level 97, my love."

* MortonsFork: Early in the Sci-Fi 2016 event, when you are given the task, "Make Homer Do 37 Experiments for Hawking", Homer reacts by declaring he's going to refuse to perform tasks from now on. Then a "Make Homer Refuse to Do a Task" task appears, and Homer of course refuses. Cue the "Collect your reward!" screen for "completing" the task.

* JokeCharacter: Herman Hermann, but more so in a literal sense rather than the trope's actual definition. Even the storyline's dialogue ending lampshades this, saying that [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything the dev team]] [[InvertedTrope didn't plan that far ahead]].

** Also, when the Fat Homer skin does the "Get some Sun" task. He actually [[Squick strips bare]], and the game thankfully puts a pixelated square over his groin.
