Trivia / Leeroy Jenkins

  • The original Leeroy Jenkins became famous by way of becoming a Jeopardy question, and soon reached Ascended Meme status from a parodied appearance in Guild Wars, numerous tribute videos, a Dave Barry mention, and as a card in the World of Warcraft card game. (and even, if you listen carefully enough, the Make Love, not Warcraft episode of South Park). Oh, and there's a Jenkins achievement in WoW, as of Wrath of the Lich King. He is also a figure in the newish World of Warcraft Collectable miniatures Game, and a card in Hearthstone.
    • This has now reached full circle as Leeroy became an NPC in the World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor. His body is encountered in the same room he died in in the original video, and can be resurrected for an achievement, fittingly enough, for a speedrun of said dungeon. When completed, Leeroy can be recruited as a Garrison follower.
