Trivia / Don't Starve

  • Ascended Fanon: That characters' names all beginning with a W was a coincidence, but after the first few, the devs ran with it.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Fans of the game have taken the calling for the Treeguardnote  as "Optimus Pine" since it spawns from a fully grown pine tree and transforms back into one when it's idle (though in appearance only).
      • Treebeard is also a popular nickname for the Treeguard.
  • Flip-Flop of God: Klei Entertainment initially said there would be no multiplayer. Then in May 2014, they announced Don't Starve Together, a multiplayer feature.
  • The Wiki Rule: There is one up and running on Wikia.
  • What Could Have Been: The Shipwrecked DLC was originally a standalone game, but after fans demanded it, it became DLC for the main game.
