     Dethklok 

The Band

Band Tropes

  • A God Am I: Hinted at throughout the series, the group themselves are totally oblivious to this, at least until Skwisgaar starts to believe it.
    • All but established in the "The Doomstar Requiem"
  • Apocalypse Maiden: 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.
  • Artist Disillusionment: In-universe, natch.
  • Badass Crew: When their backs are against the wall (and they know and care about it), they'll take the threat down and protect each other in the process.
  • "Brilliant" But Lazy: By brilliant, this troper means as musicians.
  • Celebrity Power: Deconstructed.
  • The Chosen Ones: As revealed in the Season 4 finale
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It's just really, really stupid.
  • Doom Magnet: Something bad happens at every concert.
  • Mr. Fanservice: All of them, save Murderface. (The most popular among fans seem to be Skwisgaar, Offdensen, Toki, and Nathan).
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Just because they are the most brutal and metal band in all of existence doesn't mean they aren't capable of being horrified from time to time. Key points include their reaction to an insane fashion designer skinning live and emaciated models for leather and their horrific attempt at bringing their chef back to life.
  • Five-Man Band: Both figuratively and literally.
    • Literally, Nathan is the lead singer, Skwisgaar the lead guitar, Toki the keyboardist (and rhythm guitar), Pickles is the drummer, and Murderface plays the tambourine bass guitar.
    • Figuratively, Nathan still takes the role of The Leader and Skwisgaar the role of The Lancer. The other members have their roles switched, with Pickles being The Smart Guy, Murderface being the The Big Guy, and Toki as The Chick.
  • Fiction 500
  • Genius Ditz: They're complete and utter incompetent Man Children... when it comes to anything other than music, partying, drugs, or contract negotiation.
  • Groupie Brigade
  • The Heavy: Each petty choice they make has social and economic shock-waves, setting topics for each episode.
    • At one point, the economy of the entire world is dependent on the release of their newest album. And then "Prankklok" happened.
    • As it turns out it wasn't "the right song" and the forces that be convinced Nathan to destroy it to do it right. No doubt the fifth season will cover this.
  • Heel Realization: Some of the episodes kick off with a member of the band realizing that despite their success, they're still spoiled man children who have major issues and are very unfulfilled, and they leave the band to do something about it. Being the world this is, they usually revert back to their old ways without much regret.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath
  • Hollywood Atheist: Parodied by Toki and Skwisgaar, who not only steadfastly refuse to believe God exists, but don't believe religion exists either.
  • Impossibly Cool Wealth
  • Informed Ability
  • Jerks With Hearts Of Gold: Yes, even Murderface.
  • Lethal Klutz: Dethklok manage to kill fans at every show, the faulty and badly-conceived products they endorse cause countless deaths, and that's not even getting into the times when either they or their fans have people murdered intentionally.
  • Lonely at the Top: Poor Dethklok. Despite all their wealth and fame, they can't have real friends due to their Doom Magnet status. Lampshaded in "Dethdoubles".
  • Mad Artist
  • Man Child: All of them to some extent (often crossing over into Psychopathic Manchild). Toki is probably the most childish.
  • Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: See A God Am I.
  • N.G.O. Superpower
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Mostly Murderface, but might apply to the rest of the band, given their fondness for brutal things.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Read each band member's Expy page below.
  • Nominal Hero
  • The Power of Rock: And there is no shortage of it.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: It pops up occasionally, but it gives hints about their heritage.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: Hoo boy. This was evident from the very first episode where they struggled to understand the concept of "grocery shopping", but it really hit the fan in the season 3 premiere, where, without Offdensen to manage them, they blow all their money on things like a giant Dorito-themed amusement park (not open to the public) and "the Super Tits Candy Snake Project", which was never completed or defined.
  • Rule of Metal
  • Rule of Funny: Dethklok's general level of competency is dependant entirely on what makes for the funniest situation.
  • Self-Deprecation: WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING RIIIIGHHHTTT !!!!
  • Serious Business: Death Metal in general and their contracts and money.
  • Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll: Two of the three (if not all three) will apply to all of them.
  • Sexual Karma: Averted. Despite the fact that the members of Dethklok are pretty much sociopaths, they have legions of women who want to sleep with them (well, except for Murderface, that is).
  • The Call Has Bad Reception: Dethklok is oblivious to the their importance to the world until Season 4. The band thinks Nathan Explosion destroyed their album under the influence of tequilla, when it turned out to be prophecy.
  • Too Dumb to Live
  • True Companions: They'll never ever admit it (because "it's not metal") but they care for one another and for Offdensen, their manager. Okay, Toki may try to admit it, but they'll call him names.
    • Averted in "Church of the Black Klok," where Nathan's eulogy turns into a public apology to his band for causing the breakup and admittance that his band is more important than a girl.
    • Forms the crux of the plot in "The Doomstar Requiem" where they come to realize they're more then just bandmates. They're family.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Hamburger Time
  • Vitriolic Best Buds

Skwisgaar Skwigelf (Taller than a Tree)

Toki Wartooth (Not a Bumblebee)

William Murderface (Murderface Murderface)

  • Ambiguously Gay: And he's very sensitive about it.
  • And Zoidberg: 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.
  • Animal Motifs: Tigers and Pigs
  • The Big Guy: Subverted in that despite his figure, he is actually a very uncertain and emotionally sensitive person.
  • Big "Shut Up!": Murderface utters one during the band's interrogation about his sensitivity to penis-shaped food.
  • Break the Haughty: In "Dethsiduals".
  • Butt Monkey
  • Catch Phrase: "Piss!" and other variants. Also "I was thinking... not very hard, mind you".
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's mostly a moronic, mooching Small Name, Big Ego, but the man can play bass with body parts that weren't meant to touch an instrument. He can also write music like the others, but he won't until his own money is in jeopardy.
  • Expy: Of Geezer Butler
  • Face Palm: Murderface's reaction to Dr. Rockso's first appearance.
  • Freud Was Right: Murderface is very apprehensive about eating hot dogs, bananas and sausages. At least, where anyone can see him doing it.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes
  • Gonk: To the point there is not a woman on earth that will sleep with him.
  • Identical Grandson: To his grandma, Stella.
  • It's All About Me: The whole band is very selfish, but Murderface is easily the worst of the five. This is implied to come to a head in Season 5.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Even the creators of the show agree, Murderface is a tortured soul who desperately needs acceptance and a cure for his extreme loneliness and sensitivity... but he is also a complete and total asshole who is repugnant in every way.
  • Mr. Seahorse: Well, that's how Murderface interpreted his infestation with parasites, anyway.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast
  • Never Speak Ill of the Dead: Murderface brings this up in a roundabout way when Twinkletits supposedly falls to his death.
    Murderface: "Now that he's dead, it's easier to say...emotional things about him."
  • Nightmare Face: In "Dethvanity". Thank god it doesn't last long.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Is very interested in "morbid crap". His room is full of medieval torture devices.
  • Nobody Loves the Bassist: Comes in around season two where its revealed that Nathan often time edits out his tracks on albums. The finale of season two also saw Murderface get mocked by two groupies just because he's the bassist.
  • Shower of Angst: After an "incident" at the doctor's office.
  • The Southpaw: Possibly. He signed a contract with his left hand, but given that he plays right handed, and even refers to his right hand as his bass playing hand, its possible he's ambidextrous.
  • Small Name, Big Ego
  • Snap Back: Whenever something bad happens to him, he is completely recovered by the next episode and no mention of the recovery is ever made. This includes being infested with parasites, dropped from a height of several stories into a mob of angry fans, having his junk broken, shaving his mustache, and having his face infected by a botched surgery.
  • The Load: Most of the time his base is mixed out of every song and his amp was shut off during a show and no one noticed. He's really only kept around because his negativity helps with the bands ability to make music they deem 'brutal' enough.
  • Tears of Blood:
    Murderface: *looking over his birthday presents* "You mean, I get to destroy United States history literally?"
  • Tsundere
  • Ugly Cute
  • Virus Victim Symptoms: Due to being pricked by a spiked armband, the end of "The Doomstar Requiem" sees him infected with a virus that's beginning to spread over his body. Salacia mentioned that their would be a traitor within the group and most likely he plans to take control of William for his own ends.
  • The Woobie

Pickles the Drummer (Doodily Doo, Ding Dong Doodily Doodily Doo)

  • All Drummers Are Animals: Zigzagged. He binges on more alcohol and drugs than the rest of the band, but he is also the most experienced and multi-talented, from his time in Snakes N' Barrels. By Season 4, he is one of the most responsible members of Dethklok.
  • American Accents: Being from WI, he speaks with a sort of a hybrid of Inland North and North Central accents.
  • Animal Motifs: Octopi
  • Berserk Button: Being reminded that he's The Unfavorite. That and sobriety it seems.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "By the power of all that is evil, I command you to awaken and MAKE ME A SANDWICH!"
  • Calling the Old Man Out: He finally tells his mom to go fuck herself after he fully realizes she will never be proud of him.
  • Catch Phrase: "Douchebags!" or "Motherdouchebags!"
  • Expy: Of Devin Townsend from metal band, Strapping Young Lad (appearance), Axl Rose (being the former front man of Guns N' Roses parody band, Snakes N' Barrels) and Roger Taylor (drum playing style according to Brendon Small).
  • Hair Today Gone Tomorrow
  • Immune to Drugs
  • I Need a Freaking Drink:
    Pickles: "Nice one, what are you trying to do, depress us? Now I need a drink. A different one, not this one. And in a different place."
  • Not the Fall That Kills You: Pickles gets two in "Rehabklok"; once when his hoverdrums "land" face-up, and once when he lands in Soft Water.
  • Odd Name Out: Really, Pickles?
  • Old Shame: The former front man for hair metal band Snakes N' Barrels.
  • Only Child Syndrome: Subverted; Pickles is the only band member with a sibling.
  • Only One Name: Unless you count his title on the band.
  • Self-Fanservice: It seems many people who make fan art of him seem to completely ignore the fact that he is balding and has a dread-lock comb-over, giving him a flowing straight full head of hair.
    • Even fanworks with a less idealized art style often exaggerate the height difference between Pickles and the other band members for the purposes of humor or cuteness.
  • Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll: Pickles was a part of this culture in The Eighties.
  • Singing Voice Dissonance: His lower range sounds a lot like James Hetfield, as heard in "Hatredcopter" and parts of "Rehabklok".
  • Take a Third Option:
    "I'm gonna get drunk AND save the band!"
  • Team Mom
  • The Smart Guy: The smartest guy in Dethklok anyway. He's the most multi-talented of the group, because of his experience with Snakes N Barrels. It's implied that he's actually highly intelligent, he's just drunk and high all the time; flashbacks show him graduating (presumably college, since he left home at sixteen) and he's able to explain polymeters to Nathan.
  • The Unfavorite: In his family. What's worse, his conman, leech of a brother is the favorite.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: When Murderface tried to act fatherly to Skwisgaar, Pickles acted this trope, in part due to his own father's neglect.
  • The Woobie

Nathan Explosion

  • Ambiguous Disorder
  • Animal Motifs: Alligators
  • The Anti Hero
  • Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
    Nathan: "I think I know what you are all trying to say... I, um... I think we have to build a space helicopter."
  • Awesome McCool Name / Names to Run Away From Really Fast
  • Badass: Well, Magnus Hammersmith once stabbed him literally in the back. His reaction was to smash him to the ground and then beat the living shit out of him, while the dagger was still lodged in his back. Also, he kicks the ass of some dildo who was harassing Toki in one episode. It's so brutal that it covers the moon in blood, which is pretty fucking metal.
    • Badass Baritone: Perpetual Death Growl.
    • Barbarian Longhair: Well, he's descended from a cannibal tribe in South America, and he's often remarked as looking like Death Metal Native American. Also, whenever he plays a Viking in the music videos.
    • Badass In Charge: Of the band, when Ofdensen's away.
    Ofdensen: You and Pickes are the most responsible.
    Nathan Explosion: Well fuck you too.
    • Badass Biker: With a motorcycle with no less than four sidecars.
  • Break the Badass: At the very end of "Dethhealth" where Nathan and his dentist are on a hunting trip; the dentist blows his head off in a sudden act of suicide. Nathan's expression is priceless.
  • Big Beautiful Man: According to the Tribunal's chart in "Dethvanity", Nathan is considered the second-most attractive member of the band in-universe — even though the show often refers to him (and shows him) as overweight. In the same episode, he lets himself go hard and ends up breaking the hot tub.
  • The Big Guy: Type 3.
  • Bill... Bill... Junk... Bill...: In "Dethwedding".
    Nathan: "Subpoena, subpoena, subpoena, Netflix. Huh, yeah, awesome, naked lady fan mail — possibly awesome, possibly horrible. Subpoena..."
  • Cannot Spit It Out: When Nathan tries to apologize to Pickles for being the asshole that he is, it causes him to vomit blood before he's finally able to show any emotion and say he was sorry.
  • Catch Phrase: "Brutal.", "NOOOOOOOOOO!", and, in Diversityklok, "That's doable."
  • Demoted to Extra: Nathan increasingly edges toward this trope in Season Three, what with the other band members stealing the spotlight.
  • Drives Like Crazy: In "Dethmas", the band's mothers have insisted on spending some quality time with them, and Nathan is trying to find a parking spot at the mall on Christmas Eve...
    Other Driver: "You hit my car!"
    Nathan: "Hey! I have four mothers telling me how to drive! What's your excuse, asshole?"
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Papas: It is revealed in season 3 that the two actually enjoy some quality time together when they get the chance. Which is quite amazing considering the shitty relationship the rest of the band has with their fathers.
  • Expy: Of George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher. He also, as recently pointed out, looks a lot like Dave Matrise.
  • Gentle Giant: While not a straight example, Nathan is more amiable and warm-hearted than his reputation and appearance would have you believe.
    "This is MY band. You're MY stupid, dumb, *''pinch harmonic''* up, dysfunctional family, alright?!"
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: When Murderface's unfathomably bizarre scheme to to get in good with Serveta Skwigelf makes Pickles and Toki start directing all their pent-up daddy issues at him, Nathan slaps the crap out of them both and tells them to wake the (pinch harmonic) up.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: In "Dethhealth", Nathan experiences this while visiting his dentist.
    Murderface: "Gas means your wiener's being played with by a suicidal weirdo! Gas means you're gay!
    Pickles: "Dude! Who cares if he plays with your dick?? You'll totally be out!"
  • Guttural Growler: His normal voice sounds just like a death growl.
  • Governor Evil: Of Florida. Though he didn't mean to.
  • "Hey, You!" Haymaker: Delivers one to Murderface when the band gets into a fight onstage in "Performanceklok".
  • Hidden Depths: Has shades of this, which puts him on par with Pickles. Some things include speaking French and negotiating contracts with the Blues Devil. He is also seen reading more than the others.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink:
    "Oh, I hate Finland. I need a hundred beers. Exactly - exactly one hundred."
  • Insane Troll Logic:
    Nathan: "Bleach is healthy. It's mostly water, and we're mostly water. Therefore, we are bleach."
  • I Was Quite a Looker: He's alright looking now, but as seen during "Dethcamp" he used to be quite ripped.
    • Regains some of this in "Going Downklok". As he can't masturbate, he starts working out a lot instead.
  • Kubrick Stare: Does this at the end of "Dethcamp", seconds before punishing the douchebag bullying Toki with a broken snowglobe. It's so epic that it turns the moon red!
    Nathan: "Tell me, which hand do you fret with?"
  • Large Ham: On occasion.
  • Malicious Misnaming: Nathan has been called "Tonto" twice. Nothing good has come out of those times.
  • Or So I Heard: Nathan claims this in regards to how he knows so much about previous failed Zazz Blammymatazz reunions.
  • Papa Wolf: Screw with his band mates, and he'll make you severely regret it.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Seems to be capable of only one expression.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: In-universe as "Natebecca" or "Rebasplosion" with Rebecca Nightrod.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Literally had to do this in Writerklok by coming up with a new song on the spot to save his band.
  • The Stoic: In the sense that he's not really good with emotions. The others joke that if he ever had to honestly apologize, his internal organs would explode. They aren't far off; in the Season 4 finale, he goes into convulsions and vomits up blood while apologizing to Pickles for destroying their album and fucking Abigail.
  • Team Dad: Has some of this towards Toki.
  • Tears of Blood: Does this in the Detharmonic video, because taxes are just that brutal.
  • The Unintelligible
  • Vocal Evolution: Music-wise, Nathan's singing voice started out as deeper and more guttural than it is now. This is Truth in Television - most death metal vocalists pitch up over time due to the stress being put on their vocal cords.
  • Weight Woe: Alongside Murderface. Nathan isn't happy with how he's let himself go.

Magnus Hammersmith (M.H., formerly known as The Unknown Member)

  • Beard of Evil
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Serves as part of this in The Doomstar Requiem, alongside the Metal Masked Assassin.
  • Cry for the Devil: In the Klok Opera, the song Do It All For My Brother has a shot of Magnus looking sadly at a picture of him with Dethklok, seemingly when they first started and were all happy to be working with each other; while he was a horrible person and his ousting was justified, this shows he still viewed Dethklok as his best friends and that he was very hurt by their actions.
  • Expy: Dave Mustaine
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Happens to him courtesy of the Metal Masked Assassin in The Doomstar Requiem. He eventually frees himself and is left to bleed to death.
  • Jerkass: Massively! It's revealed in "Dethcamp" that he was forced out of Dethklok after being a raging douchebag to everyone and getting in a fight with Nathan, which he promptly lost.
    • Though he saved Toki's life in "Dethcamp", it is heavily implied that he did so not out of kindness. "Breakupklok" confirms that he is the Revengencers' inside man, and heavily implies that he is using Toki to give his allies access to Dethklok.
    • He ups it in the fourth season finale by kidnapping Toki and stabbing him.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Has this revelation in his dying moments upon seeing Dethklok manifest the power of gods.
  • Not What I Signed On For: Dips into this when he sees the Metal Masked Assassin kill Ishnifus Meaddle. Gets impaled for his trouble.
    • He showed signs of this during his first song in the Klok Opera. He has no intent to kill Toki and Abigail, and views Toki as another victim. He doesn't want to murder anyone, especially the band, but he does want them to suffer in obscurity like he has after being kicked out.
  • The Pete Best: For Toki
  • Red Baron: The Man Who Stands Behind Shadows, according to the prophecy.
  • Redemption Equals Death: At least he seems to believe so. Upon Toki and Abigail being rescued, he realizes how he has failed and how vastly he underestimated Dethklok's powers. Accepting his "role" as the villain, despite the fact that he'd most likely bleed to death from the impalement inflicted upon him by the Assassin anyway, he finishes the deed himself.
  • Revenge: He never got over being kicked out of the band despite giving the group every reason to do so. He has slowly been biding his time to get revenge on Dethklok, even joining the Revengencers. He achieves it during "Church of the Black Klok", as he kidnaps and stabs his replacement in the band, Toki.
  • The Southpaw

The Staff

Charles Foster Offdensen

Dick Knubbler

Facebones

Jean-Pierre

Abigail Remeltindtdrinc

  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Backstab: Through the stomach during "Church of the Black Klok". She gets better.
  • Official Couple: With Nathan at Doomstar's conclusion.
  • Triang Relations: Type 3. Though all of Dethklok proposition her during "Going Downklok", it's Pickles and Nathan who are in direct competition for her. Nathan wins, but only after her vibrator's battery runs out. Unfortunately, this eventually leads to Pickles quitting Dethklok.
  • Yoko Ohno: It's even foreshadowed in the Tribunal segment during "Writersklok". She's the wedge that drives Pickles and Nathan apart, leading to Pickles quitting Dethklok.

Klokateers

     The Tribunal 

Tribunal Tropes

Senator Stampingston

General Crozier

Cardinal Ravenwood

Vater Orlaag

  • Beard of Evil
  • The Dragon: Appears to be Mr. Salacia's second-in-command, and also the only one aware of his true nature.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Very little about his character has been revealed. His job description is vague ("political and spiritual specialist"). His title and appearance would suggest that he is some sort of monastic, but his religious affiliation is unclear. He seems very loyal to and trusted by Mr. Salacia, addressing him as "Master" and having telepathic access to his thoughts. Anything beyond that is anyone's guess.
  • Fiery Redhead: His hair is some shade of auburn, and he easily has the most attitude of anyone in the Tribunal. (ex. snarking at Crozier nearly every time they speak to one another)
  • Malcolm McDowell
  • The Mole: For Mr. Salacia.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Of Rasputin.
  • Slasher Smile: Gives one to Crozier in the S2 Finale.

Mr. Salacia / The Half Man

     The Revengencers 

Revengencers Tropes

Metal Masked Assassin

  • Arch-Enemy: To Offdensen, ever since he beat him during his first attempt on Dethklok's life. MMA had it out for the manager ever since. He manages to gain the advantage in the next two meetings (he blindside Offdensen during a hospital charity gig and throws him out the window only for Offdensen to land safely on his feet. The second time he nearly kills him but Nathan knocks him out). Their last meeting however ended with Offdensen the victor though MMA manages to get away.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Season 2
    • Graduated to singular Big Bad status in season 4, as he takes over the Revengencers, though it seems to be a duumvirate again in The Doomstar Requiem, with Magnus Hammersmith as the other half, until the Assassin impales him and very briefly retakes the status for himself.
  • Blondes are Evil
  • The Brute
  • Determinator: He usually ends up getting knocked out, but he will not give up.
  • The Dragon: To Crozier in Season 1
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Did seem to genuinely love his brother.
  • The Faceless
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher
  • Killed Off for Real: Explosively disintegrated, courtesy of Dethklok manifesting the power of gods in The Doomstar Requiem.
  • Knight Templar
  • Malevolent Masked Man
  • Parental Abandonment: Stated his mother died in childbirth and their father went missing, leaving only him and his brother by themselves.
  • Professional Killer
  • Psycho for Hire
  • To the Pain
  • You Killed My Brother: Wasn't intentional of the band. His brother was tripped by one of the roadies as he was trying to kill them and landed face first on William's codpiece. He still blamed them nonetheless.

Edgar Jomfru

The Teenager

Lavona Succuboso & Succuboso Explosion

     Dethklok Families 

Dethklok Families Tropes

Oscar and Rose Explosion

  • Abusive Parents: Subverted, they are actually very good parents to Nathan overall. Still, Rose can get drunk and embarrassing, while Oscar resents Nathan for making give up his drinking to raise him. Also, Rose once screamed at Nathan that he "ruined her vagina."
    • Either this was retconned, or Oscar and Nathan patched things up. In "Fatherklok," Nathan openly states that he loves his dad and that they often hang out together.
    • It was hinted that Explosion Sauce patched up their relationship.
  • Good Parents
  • My Beloved Smother: Rose.

Thunderbolt and Stella Murderface

Calvert, Molly and Seth

  • Abusive Parents: Pickles constantly has to play "Well Done, Son" Guy to his parents, who favor Seth, Pickles' manipulative con-man of a brother. Calvert goes as far as to tell Pickles that he "...belongs in a garbage can" when he was a teen kicking him out of their home.
  • Les Yay: Molly, with Toki's mom.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Seth
  • Con Man: Seth
  • Hypocrite: Molly's behavior towards both of Pickles's business decisions in "Motherklok."
  • Jerk Ass: Seth, to the point he makes everyone in the show look like saints in comparison.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Seth, in spades.
  • Karma Houdini: Again, Seth. Every time he's thrown into karma's path, he twists it to his advantage.
  • Mark Hamill: Here again, voicing Calvert.
  • N.G.O. Superpower: Seth, who as the president of Dethklok's fan club in Sydney, Australia, can pull resources he needs to protect him and his family from the Revengencers, even at the risk of the safety of city.
  • Pretty Freeloaders: Seth
  • The Unintelligible: Seth

Serveta Skwigelf

  • Abusive Parents: To say she is a promiscuous slut would be an insult to promiscuous sluts everywhere. Sure her son became a kickass guitarist because of it, but he also gained her rampant promiscuity.
    • Averted with Skwisgaar's stepfather, who was actually a pretty nice guy. Too bad he married a massive slut.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Anything That Moves: Even Dr. Rockso...*shudder*
  • Dumb Blonde
  • Gainaxing: At one point during "Dethfam".
  • Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have: She's still sexually active at her age, and Murderface has expressed attraction towards her. She's also really a grandma to tons of illegitimate kids.
  • Nipple and Dimed: Though we never actually see them (thankfully), she apparently never wears a bra because they are always visible underneath her dress.
  • Really Gets Around: Extra emphasis on "really". To the point that when Skwisgaar is searching for his father, Skwisgaar seems completely reasonable in the exchange below.
    Skwisgaar: "Anythings yet?"
    Klokateer: ""Not yet, sire. Several thousand men have come forward claiming to be your father. "
    Skwisgaar: "Several thousgand?"
    Klokateer: "They all claim to have had sex with your mother, Serveta. In a period of a month. This seems impossible."
    Skwisgaar: Ugh... You don't know my moms.
  • You No Take Candle

Aslaug and Anja Wartooth

  • Abusive Parents: Aslaug, who was apparently a reverend, would regularly abuse and treat Toki cruelly. The level of physical and emotional abuse Toki endured form him was ridiculous, yet Toki loved his father enough to try to give him his dying wish.
  • Aborted Arc: The first appearance of the characters featured one of the Tribunal ranting that Toki's father was destined to kill his son. Instead it was the other way around.
  • Death Glare: Both... to Toki... constantly.
  • Humiliation Conga: Aslaug, minutes before he died. Some would say he deserved it for how he treated Toki.
  • Killed Off for Real: Aslaug
  • Les Yay: Anja, with Pickles' mom.
  • Oh Crap: When the band's families are introduced in "Dethfam", Toki spends most of the episode mute in shock just by his parents being there.
  • The Voiceless: Both

     Other Characters 

Leonard Rockstein aka Dr. Rockso, The Rock & Roll Clown (he does cocaine)

  • Easily Forgiven: By Toki, over and over again. Even after supposedly having cut himself off from the clown for good.
    • This was addressed in his first appearance, then retconned in season three: Toki has a natural affinity for clowns (even having serial killer John Wayne Gacy perform as Pogo the Clown, prior to the reveal that he was Norwegian and his parents look like they came straight out of a Middle Ages Bergman film. They later retconned him being similar to a talking clown doll that Toki kept with him when his father locked him in a pit as punishment as a child.
