Go To


Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: To a certain extent. He's the first unambiguously evil person that Salad Fingers meets and emotionally breaks him down. After his appearance, the show brings in much more ''disturbing'' characters such as Yvonne, Salad Fingers "Platoon", Dr. Papanak, and the Glass Family.

Added DiffLines:

* AntagonistTitle: Of episode 11, though he functions more as TheDragon to Glass Mother.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: She completely loses it when Salad Finger finally one-ups her.


* GoMadFromTheIsolation: WordOfGod says that loneliness was the main theme of the series, with Salad Fingers living in almost complete isolation and already well over the madness threshold.

* MentalWorld: May or may not be living in some version of one. {{Word of God}} leaves it open to interpretation.

* HorrifyingTheHorror: As of later episodes, Salad Fingers is no really longer the source of the horror and fear in the series - it's what happens to him and around him, which means sometimes SF is the one who is scared.

* ImAHumanitarian: Salad Fingers at least imagines himself (or other versions of himself) regularly consuming human parts, and no one knows what he did with the child he cooked in his oven.

Added DiffLines:

*GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Of the evil sort, given that, in some shots (like the abovementioned) she has a cigarette holder in her mouth.

Added DiffLines:

* BritishTeeth: His mouth is filled with rotting and yellowing teeth.


* Angrish: His entire dialogue consists of feral screams.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Salad Fingers never outright displays any signs of hostility or violence (to anyone other than himself at least), but a few episodes implying incidents of murder and the times we've seen Salad Fingers become angry, it's quite clear why we shouldn't piss him off still.
** Firth confirmed this in an interview with The Overtake:
--> "Heís a nice guy. I donít think he ever actually kills on purpose. But thereís lots of evidence that he may have done. Heís like a cat. A cat will kill mercilessly outside but you still bring him in and cuddle him. Itís the same as Salad Fingers, heís just a bit of an animal.Ē

Added DiffLines:

** Episodes 10 and 11 demonstrate the progression of Firth's art style, meaning that Salad Fingers looks slightly different than in past episodes. Although it's hard to describe how or why, he definitely looks cuter and more quaint than in the earliest episodes.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatingLifeIsAwesome: In Episode 11, Salad Fingers manages to bring Hubert Cumberdale to life after giving him a handmade skin-suit. This version of Hubert is sentient, able to communicate, and mobile. Considering the series' allusion to the entire narrative just being a hallucination, it may be that this form of Hubert is a hallucination too, but it still stands.

* CreepyCute: Particularly in later episodes, with Firth having slightly changed Salad Fingers' design and fleshed out his personality. Beneath the creepiness, he's quite endearing.
