* AndZoidberg: It is repeatedly stated that Murderface is the least popular and respected member of the band, to the point where many fans don't even recognize him as an actual band member at all. There are even times where the others turn off Murderface's amp for entire concerts without anyone noticing. Runner up for least popular band member is Toki, who is considered the worst player in the band. This is why Murderface and Toki are frequently hanging out together. On the other hand, when Nathan, Skwisgaar and Pickles try to write songs without them, they manage to knock out 47 songs in a short time -- but end up dismissing them all as crap because they lack the sort of pure anger and hatred that songs written with Murderface and Toki have.

** In "Fatherklok", it's implied that [[spoiler: Skwisgaar might actually be a demigod himself, his absent and untraceable father being (perhaps) one of the Norse gods]].

* ADateWithRosiePalms: In "Going Downklok", this is what the band does in order to alleviate any sexual tension they may have from not having a single woman on board for months. [[spoiler: Not only does it fail, but it backfires quite hard. They all contract Advanced Carpal Tunnel Syndrome because of excessive masturbation.]]

** Also the bit in Prankklok [[spoiler: where Nathan and Pickles fight before Nathan destroys the liquid master]] is gorgeously animated and coloured, right before going back to the same quality used throughout the rest of the series.
* ApocalypseMaiden: The Tribunal believes Dethklok has a connection to the eponymous end-of-the-world prophecy. Dethklok's music itself seems to cause insanity and chaos to ensue. The process that Dethklok's scientists developed for Dethklok to record music onto water causes entire landscapes to turn to blight.
** It turns out that [[spoiler: Mr. Salacia]] is one himself.

Fans, music teachers, pets, and even [[spoiler: his father after he finally forgave him for a lifetime of [[AbusiveParents abusive parenting]]]]. Only Doctor Rockso seems to have avoided this, though JokerImmunity may be preventing his death by Toki friendship.

** Played straight in "Renovationklok". Damien, the son of the executive that gave Dethklok their contract, had been holding a grudge against them (particularly Nathan) for punching him years prior. [[spoiler: When he took power from his ailing father, he cut off both Dethklok's finances and the power to their concert so he could force the band to sign a new contract that would benefit him more than it would the band. When Offdensen intervened, Damien tried to attack him -- only to get punched by Nathan again.]]

*** With the exception of General Crozier (whose primary worry is that Dethklok stirs the world to ridiculous levels of ultraviolence) and Salacia ([[spoiler: who wants Dethklok to cause the Metalocalypse]]), the Tribunal is primarily worried that because Dethklok does what they want, how they want to do it, regardless of any consequences or obstacles, they will actually ''improve'' the life of the common folk by setting an inspirational example. The potential release of "Blood Ocean" stirred up fears of a return of creative control to artists, and Nathan's pursuit of his GED stirred fear that people would realize that the working class is just as smart as the upper class.

** Dethklok finally finished their newest album and explicitly produced it in the 100% Piracy-proof water format. On the day that the album was meant to be shipped out, horrible stormy weather all across the globe ended up sinking the entire fleet of cargo ships containing every copy -- except for the master copy in Mordhaus.

However, this actually turned out to be a DeusExMachina, as it's later revealed that had the shipping been successful, the Tribunal would have obtained enough funds to start up the Falconback Project (which is potentially part of the Metalocalypse)]].

** The one in "Dethhealth" is even MORE of an acid sequence, with everyone singing at some point -- Pickles becomes a giant head in the sky with his dreadlocks acting like tentacles as he sings about [[spoiler: how he's not actually going to die]], Nathan he sings about how his dentist doesn't want to commit "Hamburger Time" (which is quickly subverted right before the Titmouse logo), and Murderface sings happily about how he "jacked off on a doctor's face". Skwisgaar, being the only member of Dethklok who didn't get a major event that episode, joins Murderface, singing "He jacks offs on a doctor's face!" with the same amount of glee.
* DisproportionateRetribution: This happens to the rap/rock band Get Thee Hence in "Dethsiduals" for simply being allowed to ''open'' for Dethklok in concert. [[spoiler: The fans immediately rushed to the stage and killed them all.]] Even Nathan, who said that he hated Get Thee Hence, was shocked to see this happen.

* AllGuitarsAreStratocasters: Averted, thanksfully. Skwisgaar only plays Gibson Explorers and Toki only plays Gibson Flying V's. Every other "regular jack-off" in the show uses a variety of more common models like Stratocasters, Les Pauls and SG's. Then again, the show is sponsored by multiple companies producing guitar-gear, and Brendon Small is a guitarist, so if they just used mainstream gear instead of gear designed for Metal, it would be anywhere near as satisfying.

* TakeThat: The Dethsiduals episode contains a very obvious TakeThat against Papa Roach and other Rap Metal Alternative bands.
** The fashion designer from Dethfashion is a hilarious exaggeration/parody of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Lagerfeld Karl Lagerfeld]], head of Chanel and real-life supervillain.

** In the B Plot of Dethcamp, Charles acknowledges that Nathan and Pickles are the most responsible members of Dethklok. Even though they're initially offended by the remark, their actions in the episode (such as Nathan making sure Toki has everything packed before going to camp and [[spoiler:[[PapaWolf going after the bully that attacked Toki and broke his snowglobe]]]], as well as Pickles letting Skwisgaar and Murderface sleep in his bed after they were having nightmares) basically read as trading off TeamDad and TeamMom duties. Pickles even accuses Nathan of "overparenting Toki just a little bit."

* VitriolicBestBuds: The whole band, specifically Toki and Skwisgaar. Skwisgaar constantly belittles Toki for his guitar playing, among other things, and on numerous occasions Toki and Skwisgaar openly state they "hate" each other. It really hits home in the season 1 finale when Toki states "I've always hated you, Skwisgaar," and Skwisgaar responds with "I know, Toki. I know,", in an affectionate tone. Their odd relationship often ventures into HoYay territory.

** Music-wise, Nathan's singing voice started out as deeper and more gutteral than it is now. This is TruthInTelevision - most death metal vocalists pitch up over time due to the stress being put on their vocal cords.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: When Pickles goes on a game show, he is asked which celestial body is [[PlutoIsExpendable no longer considered a planet]]. To say he guesses wrong in his drunken haze would be an understatement.
-->'''Pickles:''' I'm gonna have to say say the earth. The earth is no longer considered a planet.
** Hey, at least Pickles named a planet. Skwisgaar guessed ''the sun''.
