* ObliviousToHisOwnDescription: For security reasons, the band decides to hire body doubles. The doubles all resemble the actual band members to varying degrees, but Murderface's double is a dead ringer, leading to this:

-->'''Ofdensen:''' Actually, Murderface, he--
-->'''Murderface:''' Look at that head, that disgusting forehead, that stupid-shaped hair, beady eyes, like, stupid flat nose, wide hammer-ass, chicken-plucked legs idiot! (''addressing Ofdensen'') You need to get your eyes checked, you piece of shit! This guy doesn't look like me!

* AbusiveParents: Four of the band members had abusive relationships with their parents. Nathan is the only one who has a good relationship with his parents (he mentions in "Fatherklok" that he loves spending time with his dad). The only fault Nathan's parents have is being your stereotypical embarrassing parents.
** Technically, Murderface had abusive grandparents -- though the death of Murderface's parents in front of his infant self (in a murder/suicide committed by his chainsaw-wielding father) certainly [[RepressedMemories had an effect on him]], as seen in "Performanceklok".

* AbusiveParents: Four of the band members had abusive relationships Played with.
** Serveta Skwigelf is emotionally abusive. She kept having sex
with their parents. Nathan is the only one who has a good relationship with his strange men regardless of how it would affect young Skwisgaar, and made absolutely no effort to shield her own son from her lewd activities. This resulted in Skwisgaar growing up to become musically talented yet utterly unable to love and lacking in social skills outside of sex.
** Pickle's
parents (he mentions in "Fatherklok" Molly and Calvert are also emotionally abusive, openly lavishing their love and attention to their {{Jerkass}}, mooching, and manipulative older son, Seth, while completely disregarding all achievements their musically talented, multi-trillionaire younger son made. Calvert told Pickles before he ran away that he loves spending time with his dad). The only fault Nathan's parents have is being your stereotypical embarrassing parents.
** Technically, Murderface had abusive grandparents -- though
belonged "in a garbage can", while Molly constantly disapproving of ''everything'' Pickles did in "Motherklok" [[spoiler:to the death of point where Pickles reaches a breaking point and furiously tells her to [[CallingTheOldManOut "Go FUCK yourself!"]]]].
**
Murderface's parents deceased father committed murder-suicide on himself and Murderface's mother right in front of his their infant self (in a murder/suicide committed by his chainsaw-wielding father) certainly son (which [[RepressedMemories had an effect on him]], him]] as shown in "Performanceklok"), and his grandmother, Stella, verbally and physically abuses him despite being in a mobile wheelchair. Murderface hates her to the point where he tried choking her to death in "Dethfam" and doesn't help her up in "Dethmas" when a wooden cross prop fell on her, instead deriving satisfaction from seeing her struggle.
** Toki's father, Aslaug, heaped tremendous levels of physical and mental abuse, treating him like a servant than a son and making him perful extremely back-breaking work that would certainly kill a child. If Toki transgressed in any way, he would be slapped, flogged, and/or thrown into an underground cellar. His wife, Anja, never once stepped in to stop the abuse and could be
seen glaring at young Toki with equal vehemence.
** Subverted with Nathan's parents, Oscar and Rose Explosion. Nathan acts awkwardly around them and says almost nothing but hateful things about them, [[BaitTheDog leading one to think they might be as abusive as his bandmates' parents]]... but Oscar and Explosion are actually decent people whose only flaws consist of the typical embarrassing parents who (seemingly) don't know how to connect with their metalhead son. Their calling out Nathan for blowing them off when they visited
in "Performanceklok"."Dethfam" was only, in context, telling him off for thinking they don't know how to be brutal as him. Oscar and Nathan would later patch things up thanks to Nathan's "Explosion Sauce" hot sauce, and in "Fatherklok" Nathan openly states - in front of his [[DarkAndTroubledPast bandmates]] how he loves his dad and they often hang out together.
** Averted with Týr, Skwisgaar's new stepfather in "Fatherklok", who treats him like an actual father would his son, to the point where Skwisgaar starts warming up to the idea of having him as his parent. [[spoiler:Too bad it doesn't stick. Once Týr discovers Serveta's infidelity tendencies, he is unable to hadle the truth and runs off, leaving Skwisgaar very heartbroken]].

** Of the band, Murderface eats the most, leaving him with quite a bit of pudge in his gut.
** While not as bad as the above example, Nathan was shown to be a football-playing {{Hunk}} in his highschool days before he lost a bit of his muscle to Dethklok's current hedonistic rockstar lifestyle, though he's still attractive enough to turn into a BigBeautifulMan. In "Dethvanity", he lets himself go HARD and gains enough weight to break the hot tub when he jumped into it. In the same episode, the Dethklok Minute shows off how obese he is, much to his embarrassment.
** In another deconstructed example, Toki starts gorging on lots of candy after he starts endorsing it in "Skwisklok". Nathan wisely tells him not to eat so much because it'll give him diabetes, but Toki tells him to fuck off. [[spoiler:He ends up in a diabetic coma shortly afterwards and has to take insluin for everything he eats for the rest of the show]].
* BigGuy:
**
Nathan is a SOLID type 3.3. He's scary-looking, due to his sheer size, his perpetual "death growl" voice, and physical strength that surpasses those of his bandmates... but underneath the brutality is a GentleGiant who loves Disneyland, kittens, reading, and his parents (especially his dad). Also his bandmates, even if he won't admit it openly.
** Subverted with Murderface. He LOOKS like he could hurt you... but all his threats are just bluster and his tough and brutal facade is only a front. He's actually very insecure and emotionally sensitive.

** Dethklok's presence tends to exacerbate this. Their fans probably wouldn't be so dangerous if it weren't for their current malleable state. On more than one occasion, the opposite has been true, as the Tribunal fears that Dethklok's antics could stimulate the masses' minds in a positive manner.

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.

Toki, however, is the complete opposite of this trope. He is a nice guy most of the time, but harbours a deeper, darker side.

*** Although in most cases, it's just visual similarities rather than personality or professional ones. For example, bass player William Murderface feels inadequate because he doesn't contribute creatively to Dethklok and often tries to take credit for writing when he's practically incapable of doing so, and fails every project he attempts. By contrast, bass player Geezer Butler was Black Sabbath's primary lyricist during his time with the band, and successfully led the band G/Z/R.
