[[caption-width-right:300: Clockwise from top: Matt, Edd, Tord, Tom]]

''Eddsworld'' is a British slapstick-heavy webtoon and webcomic which follows the lives of four (later just three) characters: the eponymous, cola-obsessed Edd, Matt, the square-chinned vain ginger, Tord, the trigger happy Norwegian (until he was PutOnABus) and Tom, the sarcastic, eyeless alcoholic. "Eddisodes" were released sporadically and follow no real story arc.

They usually get involved in strange adventures, involving, in no particular order: Zombies, Evil Zombie Santa, Mummies, Future Counterparts, Talking Lemons, Clones, [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking Canadians]] among other things, HilarityEnsues.

After a long battle with cancer, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkEvbOsr138 creator Edd Gould passed away on March 25, 2012.]] His friends have confirmed he left half of a two part episode completed. His passing sparked a heavy reaction from the community, and many animations have been made in tribute to him, including a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jwM7bDIPQ8 collaboration project between]] many major web animators. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ts8-ycqCik&feature=g-all-u final Eddisode voiced and animated by Edd]] was released on Youtube 2nd of June 2012. Luckily, the show continues, produced by Thomas [[Creator/TomSka "TomSka"]] Ridgewell and animated by various artists.

Has a [[Characters/{{Eddsworld}} Character sheet]].
----
!!Tropes featured include:
* ActorAllusion: In the theme song Tom is briefly shown wearing a shirt with an {{asdfmovie}} character, in the Halloween Special he reads a magazine called Ska. His VA uses TomSka as Youtube and Twitter nickname.
** The director of the movie in ''Spares'' is called Christopher Bingbong (as seen during the movie's end credits). He was voiced by Chris "Bing" Bingham.
* AuthorAppeal: There are at least six films dealing with zombie apocalypses (Apocali?).
* {{Adorkable}}: Edd can be like this.
* AlternateHistory: In [=WTFuture=], [[spoiler: Matt goes back in time and makes it so he founds, invents, and rules everything. He even [[OrwellianRetcon edits history in the present,]] so that he ''remains'' the founder, ruler, and inventor of everything.]]
* AnachronismStew: For some reason, the British Army uses Kalashnikovs and American helicopters, as seen in ''Moving Targets''.
* ArtEvolution: Their earlier videos were very blocky, but as time went on, they developed a better art style.
* ArtShift: Paul's style is less sketchy than Edd's, and it's noticeable. He's been drawing like this as early as ''2007'', if you check out Paul's ''Jasper Green'' character.
** Tom's Tales of Crazy is animated by [[http://iamprikle.tumblr.com Pearl Zhang]], in a style closer to the late Edd's.
* AuthorAvatar: All the main characters are named after, [[AsHimself voiced by]] and vaguely based off the creator and his friends.
** With Edd Gould's passing, the voice of his character is now Tim Hautekiet. The rest of the cast remains the same, though.
%%AuthorExistenceFailure is already in the Trivia tab. Please don't put it here.
* AscendedFanboy: SuperSmash3DS, real name Mark Lovallo, was the artist and occasional writer of a fan comic based on the show called ''Eddsworld Guest Comics''. Come 2013, he's writing, directing, animating and overall ''creating'' the Eddsworld Movie.
* BadFuture: Subverted, the Edd from the future sees it as a bad future because Coke's been banned. ([[DrivenToSuicide Although he wants to kill himself in the past before it can happen]]), the other two seem just fine with the future.
* BadSanta: Zanta Claws fits this trope to an A. Fortunately the Real Santa also exists. [[spoiler: It turns out that Zanta ''was'' the old Santa, and that after he died, Real Santa took his place.]]
* BerserkButton: Tom loves Smirnoff but God help you if you give him '''Diet''' Smirnoff.
* BigOlUnibrow: Tom used to have one.
* TheBlank: In Comic 82: Ignored. Lampshaded when Tom asks how Edd and Matt can breathe.
* BonusStage: Parodied in [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Not-So-Special Stage]], where it's the ENTIRE GAME.
* BrickJoke:
** Edd smashes Tom's bass in one episode. It's referenced two times in future episodes that release a good deal later.
** In the first Zanta Claws episode Edd says he thought the real Santa died years ago, only to meet what is apparently Santa at the end. In Zanta Claws 3 [[spoiler: Zanta offhandedly reveals he was the original Santa when he was alive.]]
* ButtMonkey: Tom and Matt end up on the receiving end of a lot of abuse in the cartoons, although Matt may arguably get it worse because it's obvious Edd and Tom don't like him.
* CallBack: In "Space Face Part 2," Tom is seen wielding Future Edd's weapon from ''[=WTFuture=]''.
** When Matt is taking his... ''thing'' to his room in ''Hammer and Fail'', he is heard muttering "[-It was better being ruler of everything, it was awesome.-]"
* CantTakeAnythingWithYou: Referenced and averted in a deleted scene from ''[=WTFuture=]''.
-->'''Future Edd:''' I have ''no'' idea [[TheTerminator what those naked Austrian guys were talking about]]... "Your clothes cannot time travel with you because they are not made of biological matter!" Whatever ''that'' was about...
* CaptainObvious: Captain State the Obvious in ''Tom's Tales of Awesome''.
* CatSmile: In ''Moving Targets'':
-->Edd: Sir! Can I call you Hilary, sir! *CatSmile*
** And again in ''Hello Hellhole'':
-->Edd: May we call you Lucy? *CatSmile*
* CatchPhrase: Tom's "Holy X on a Y!" or "Kitten Shopping!"
** Lampshaded in "Spares"
-->Tom Clone 1: Holy bumblebees on a body board!
-->Tom Clone 2: Holy carrot cake on a kitten!
-->[[RuleOfThree Tom Clone 3]]: [[BreakingTheFourthWall Holy reused joke on a webtoon!]]
** Matt's "Not the face!", or alternatively, "Indubitably."
* CensoredForComedy: Parodied in this comic:
-->'''Tom''': Have you ever noticed how we hardly ever swear?
-->'''Edd''': That's because it always [censored] comes up as these [censored] blocks.
-->'''Tom''': Well that's just [censored] stupid! Whose [censored] idea was that?
-->'''Edd''': Probably the same [censored] [censored] who thought it would be a good [censored] idea to [censored] [censored] [censored] and give you [censored] [censored] [censored] instead of [censored] [censored] [censored] and stuff.
-->'''Tom''': [censored].
* CharacterOutlivesActor: Sadly, Edd. Also a rare example of [[CharacterOutlivesActor the Character Outliving the Inspiration for the character.]]
* CharacterisationMarchesOn: In early Eddisodes, Matt's catchphrase was "Indubitably!". In ''Hammer and Fail 2,'' Tom is suspicious of Matt using a word with more than two syllables.
* CompanionCube: Tom calls his spiky head of hair "Steve".
** Shoe from ''Movie Makers''.
** Susan, Tom's bass guitar.
* CurseCutShort: Twice during ''Hammer and Fail 2''.
* CutShort: Averted, despite the creator's death the show still goes on.
* DeadpanSnarker: Tom. Edd can slip into this.
* DeathIsCheap: The cast are constantly killed off in the animations and comics, but are always back by the next episode or comic. It led to a bunch of [[FunnyAneurysmMoment "funny aneurysm" moments]] after Edd's death.
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler: Matt in ''Hammer and Fail 2''. Fortunately, he turned out to be too unbearable and was subsequently dumped.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: Edd's milkman in ''Zanta Claws I'', Future Edd in ''[=WTFuture=]''.]]
* {{Eyeless Face}}: Instead of eyes, Tom only has two black holes in his face (although he can still see... somehow). His mother was a bowling ball and his father was a pineapple, explaining his lack of eyes (and round head shape).
* FunWithSubtitles: in the Flash version of ''[=WTFuture=]'' and Youtube version of ''Movie Makers'':
--> '''Future Edd:''' I am YOU from the far off year of two thousand and [[SoundEffectBleep OH NO A BUS]].
--> '''Future Edd:''' Son of a [[SoundEffectBleep BEAGLE]].
--> '''Tom's Brain:''' Now he's gonna find a way to read those before-[[ItMakesSenseInContext SPAACE CAATS]].
* GilliganCut: In ''Tom's Tales of Brilliance''.
* GoryDiscretionShot: used in ''Zanta Claws I'', when he bit a kid's head off.
* GreenAesop: Their video on Global Warming.
** [[PlayedForLaughs Played for Laughs]] though, as Edd is able to stop a tsunami by unplugging everything.
--> '''Edd:''' [[LampshadeHanging Well that's just silly.]]
* HehHehYouSaidX: In ''Spares'', while Bing explains his plan in the chalkboard, he writes "algeBRA". Then an arrow that points to "hee hee"
* {{Hellevator}}: ''Hello Hellhole''.
* InternetIncorporated: Provides the page picture. Seen in ''Moviemakers''
* LateToThePunchline: In ''[=WTFuture=]'', it takes Edd '''ten years''' to pick up on a not-so-StealthInsult.
* LotusEaterMachine: Subverted in ''Zanta Claws II'', where Zanta gives the protagonists "their hearts' desires" (for Tom, a pair of eyes, for Matt, a heap of money, and for Edd a swiming pool filled with Coca Cola). All these gifts were physically real, and the painful side effects (It Burns!) were due largely to the trio's own stupidity.
* MissingStepsPlan: In "Zombeh Nation" Edd's plan to dominate the world using bacon has: step 1: bacon, step 2: bacon with an arrow pointing to the world, step 3: ????, and step 4: world domination.
* MonumentalDamage: Defied. The demon possessing Matt's body wanted to but Matt likes monuments and refuses to go along.
* NoOntologicalInertia: In Climate Change, when the gang disconnects everything, not only does the tsunami stop BUT it goes backwards restoring all the destroyed buildings.
* TheNthDoctor: The in-universe explanation for Edd's Voice Change is his being zapped by a voice-changing raygun in ''Space Face Part 2''.
* OhCrap: Edd has a facial version when, in "[=WTFuture=]", he hears the guy from outside the diner say "Hey, Edd". While Edd ''is still in his booth''.
* PaperThinDisguise: When Edd, Tom and Matt tried to disguise themselves as fish in 25 feet under the seat.[[spoiler: It actually worked for a time.]]
** An even more extreme example is when Zanta Claws tries to disguise himself as normal Santa ''by just switching hats''. [[spoiler: It was enough to fool Tom.]]
* PosthumousCollaboration: Edd apparently didn't want the series to end after his death. His friends now carry on his work with a new animator and a new voice actor for Edd's character.
* PowerTrio: As of ''25 ft. Under the Seat''.
* ProductPlacement: Edd is obsessed with Coke and refuses any substitutes.
** Same with Tom and Smirnoff. See BerserkButton.
** The former is averted since Edd's death - Ridgewell stated on Twitter that he wants to avoid being sued for copyright infrigement, so coke became cola.
** Parodied in "Ruined"
--> Tom: What in the name of this delicious bowl of Eddsworld Cereal happened to my bass!
* PuffOfLogic: In Zanta Claws II, Edd, Tom, and Matt fly by car to the North Pole by way of the Zed Gear. Matt questions how a car can fly, and their flight is cut short.
* {{Pun}}: Edd frequently makes these, especially in the comic:
-->'''Edd''': I can't be'''LEAF''' Matt got stuck in this tree! He was only trying to re'''TREE'''ve our kite!
-->'''Tom''': This is no time to make '''ACORN'''y joke!
-->'''Edd''': Well, I'm '''STUMP'''ed.
-->'''Matt''': Uh, guys, I'm still stuck?
* PutOnABus: Tord was part of their adventures, up until "25 ft. Under The Seat", where he left. When he found out that Edd died, he decided to make a video giving his reasons for leaving. Unfortunately, Tord deleted his Youtube account. For short explanation, see FanDumb on YMMV page.
* TheRival: EDUARDOOOOO... (Latin guitar strums).
* RuleOfFunny: A lot of their videos rely on this.
* RuleSixtyThree: [[http://paultervoorde.deviantart.com/art/Eddsworld-Girls-373515020 Courtesy of Paul]].
* SanityBall: Passed rapidly between Edd and Tom.
* SelfDeprecation: ''Moviemakers'' runs on this. Keep in mind both Tom and Matt make YouTube sketches.
* ShmuckBait: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Death in a can.]]
---> '''Matt's grave:''' I regret nothing!!
* ShoutOut: In "[=WTFuture=]" [[Series/DoctorWho the TARDIS]] appears in the background. In a later scene, the words "Bad Wolf," are graffitied onto a building.
** In one of the wallpaper designs, Tom, Edd, and Matt are hanging out of the door of the TARDIS as it travels through time.
** You can see a Dalek head in "Space Face" in the room with all the alien gadgets.
*** Also included are:
*** The heads of [[StarWars R2-D2 and C-3PO. as well as Han Solo's blaster]]
*** A [[Series/DoctorWho Sonic Screwdriver]]
*** [[IndianaJones The Ark Of The Covenant]]
*** A Daft Punk Record
*** A Magic 8-Ball
*** A [[Franchise/StarTrek Starfleet]] RedShirt uniform, complete with blast mark
*** [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} The Companion Cube]]
*** Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy
*** A sign with the words "[[Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill1951 Klattu Verada Nikto]]" on it.
** Another [=TARDIS=] appears in the second part of "Space Face".
*** One of the power monitors, when full, reads that the power level is [[DragonBallZ 9001.]]
*** A broken WesternAnimation/WallE unit can be seen in the garbage disposal.
** In ''Moviemakers'' the main female lead and Edd's partner/girlfriend in the titular movie looks a bit like [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Marie Kanker]].
** In ''Fun Dead'', there's [[WebAnimation/ASDFmovie ASDF Land]]. Also, one of the food stands there says [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil Jill's Sandwiches]]. (Doubles as a shout out to {{VideoGame/Dead Rising}} as well.)
*** Speaking of Resident Evil, during the opening credits (which are a {{Call Back}} to the first Zombeh Attack) you can see a poster for the Umbrella Corporation.
*** One of the background characters is the player character from {{Zombies Ate My Neighbors}}.
*** Yet another cameo in Fun Dead is a zombified version of Simon Pegg from {{Shaun of the Dead}}.
* {{Snowlems}}: All three versions show up in the winter special, "The Snogre" (get it? Because the ogre is made of snow?)
* TalkingToHimself:
** Edd, Tom, Matt and their future counterparts in ''[=WTFuture=]''.
** Edd and Larry in ''Spares''.
** Tom's Tales are fully voiced by Tom Ridgewell.
* TemptingFate: Most of the bystanders in ''[=WTFuture=]'' are killed off or maimed this way. The man who demanded extra crispy chicken gets his hand scorched to the bone via the laser (which also scorches the chicken), a man pushes past an old lady rudely (and is promptly vaporized,) and Superguy and the man with him are vaporized because Superguy is immune to "Everything in the world, except giant lasers."
** Also, in Moviemakers:
-->'''Tom:''' Even if they don't [like our film], it's not the end of the world. (cut to destroyed London)
* ThatPoorCar: In ''Hammer & Fail Part 2'', Tom gets flung backwards into his car, setting off the alarm until he turns it off.
* ThemeTune: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR2Cbu-5N9Q This one,]] used in the full version of Space Face, uploaded on Website/DeviantArt.
* TheMovie: Being animated by Marc Lovallo. It ain't no joke. [[http://supersmash3ds.tumblr.com]]
--> '''Marc''': I am not kidding. I am making this happen.
* TheProblemWithPenIsland: "This is where the '''therapists''' are!" *BeatPanel* "They should really make the space between the E and the R bigger..."
* TokenEvilTeammate: Tom tends to be the most sour and hateful out of all of them. Especially around 'gulp'[[BerserkButton Christmas]].
** When he was around, Tord was pretty bad, maybe even ''worse''. For example, in "Zanta Claws I," Edd got yelled at for ignoring his milkman's Christmas Card (mild apathy), Matt got yelled at for stepping on a bug, and Tom got yelled at for eating a pie that he wasn't supposed to eat. Tord got yelled at for ''playing paintball with '''real''' guns.'' (He seems quite proud of himself when reminded of this incident.)
* TriggerHappy: Tord. He brings guns in almost every episode he was in.
* TheUnintelligible: The King of the Fish People from ''25 Feet Under the Seat''
* VehicleVanish: Played with in Zanta Claws. Zanta is about to attack the four, until an entourage of Coca-Cola vans blasts by. When they clear, only Matt is left. After an awkward "Oh... um..." a smaller entourage comes along and he too vanishes.
** Played with again in [=WTFuture=] where upon looking down an alleyway containing Future Edd, a truck comes along and he vanishes, only to appear next to the trio seconds later. It's also used as a sound effect censor in the same scene.
* VisualPun: A lot of the early comics consist of these.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Edd is saved from death by accidentally discovering the Grim Reapers' one weakness: [[spoiler:Gravy]].
** Literally Weaksauce!
* WhamLine: "Hey Eddheads. We have some bad news..."
* ZombieApocalypse: 5 videos, 4 of them are connected, but the last one, Fun Dead, is completely unconnected to the "Zombeh Attack" series.
