  • Based on a Dream: Mr. Fingers, the creature in the Well of Darkness.
  • Creator Breakdown: The author, Tarol Hunt, went through one around 2014, as he explained in this blog post..
  • Fan Nickname: The various versions of Minmax, Kin and Forgath in the Maze of Many tend to get these, and there are a few others.
    • Scorpikin (a Kin with a scorpion's lower body)
    • Pipemax (a silent Minmax who constantly smokes a pipe, even in combat)
    • Psimax (a Psion Minmax)
    • Forghast (a Forgath with a Ring of Undeath that makes him hideous)
    • Browgath (a Forgath who constantly shouts "BROW!" and nothing else)
    • Evil Klik is also called Junior by the forumgoers, because it calls Dies-Horribly "Father".
  • I Knew It: Show of hands everyone who foresaw Psionic Minmax using the machine to come back to life.
  • Image Source
  • Reality Subtext: Spoilered for the sake of sensitive readers. This concerns Kin's Rape as Backstory. Really, only click through if you're sure you want to know. note 
  • Referenced By: Tempts Fate makes a Cameo in a few strips of the webcomic anti-HEROES.
  • Schedule Slip: The strip regularly suffers from this.
    • Still Played Straight, though differently, since an update timer was introduced. Originally, an update was scheduled every four days, then it went to five days. Also, when it ticks down to update time, it will occasionally skip back several hours (or even a day) and resume the countdown from there before updating.
  • Series Hiatus: Tempts Fate was initially intended to have a new scenario roughly every month. But then Thunt tried to make a scenario that got too big for him to handle on time while still staying on schedule with the comic. After a while he then made a mini-scenario to keep people satisfied in the meantime, and even then that one got put on a hiatus too.
  • Word of Gay: According to Word of God, one member of the Goblin Adventuring Party is homosexual, though the character's sexuality hasn't cropped up in the series yet. For those who want to know, it's Big Ears, the Paladin.
