* FridgeBrilliance: While the ending still ''is'' rather stupid (see CrossesTheLineTwice and WhatAnIdiot), it makes sense that an arcade shooter would have an ending with an in-game explanation to how the next player to pick up the controller can play the game. ** It makes sense that Umlaut is such a loud-mouthed {{Troll}}: He ''is'' TheJester, after all! And back in the Middle Ages, that's what jesters did: they made fun of everyone. * FridgeHorror: Assuming that the plotline of [[spoiler:[=CarnEvil=] starting back up when the main character puts the token in Umlaut's mouth again]] is canon, does this mean that [[spoiler:the events of the game happen over and over... '''''forever?''''']]

*HoYay: [[DeadlyDoctor Dr. Klot]] seems ''particularly'' interested in the Protagonist. --> Dr. Klot: "Boy, what a ''fine'' specimen!"

* {{Fanon}}: Even though both players are male, fans tend to call the protagonist Jacob, and the player 2 character Lisa. The official website [[http://web.archive.org/web/20010405123820/http://www.carnevil.com/main.html never named them]], and no names are given [[http://www.arcade-museum.com/manuals-videogames/C/CarnEvil_2Player_Dedicated_25in_1640069101_Nov_1998.pdf in the manual either]]. It appears that the names came about when someone added them to the Wikipedia page in July 2007, and the fandom ran with them. In fanart, Jacob is depicted with a red jacket, a green t-shirt with blue jeans and carries a flashlight, while Lisa wears a blue [[BareYourMidriff crop-top jacket]], jeans and a purple-and-white hat.

* CultClassic: The game is quite fondly regarded among those who've played it for its blend of over-the-top wackiness and gruesome imagery and was Midway's top-selling lightgun game, but for some baffling reason it was never given any kind of home console ports, restricting its fanbase to those willing to either emulate it through M.A.M.E. or track down an actual arcade cabinet.

* CultClassic: The game is quite fondly regarded among those who've played it for its blend of over-the-top wackiness and gruesome imagery, but its mainstream popularity was and still is hindered by it never receiving any home console ports at a time when arcades catering to mature gamers were extremely rare.

* TearJerker: Meta example. The fact that Midway is dead + the factor of this game being fairly unpopular = the fact that this game will likely never get a sequel.
