1* ApprovalOfGod: ''Madness Day'' is a time-honored Newgrounds festival where many fans of the series submit Madness-themed artwork, fanfiction, and fan animations. It is not uncommon for Krinkels himself to directly endorse fans who make awesome content. In fact, during ''Madness Day 2020'', he [[ streamed himself reacting to animations and artwork]] and was very receptive to other people's creations, going so far as to give each and every submission he reviewed a 5-star rating on Newgrounds.* ColbertBump: The ''Videogame/FridayNightFunkin'' GameMod known as ''VideoGame/TheTrickyMod'' has brought the series new fans and further increased Tricky's popularity.* CreatorBacklash: Krinkels regrets making ''Tricky Madness 2'', which features things like Jesus graphically cannibalizing Tricky.* CreatorsFavorite: Krinkels said [[ here]] that Sanford was probably his favorite character.* CreatorsPest: Krinkels didn't like the Sheriff much, which is why he died in ''Avenger'' and never came back.* DevelopmentHell: As of its release in January 2019, ''Expurgation'' had been in the making for around seven years due to being sidelined in favor of ''Project Nexus 2''.* FanNickname:** Fans have nicknamed Deimos' new form from ''[=DedmosRebuilt=]'', "Rockmos".** 2BDamned is often called "Doc", to the point where people think this is his canon name.** The dimension where the Deimos Adventure mini-series takes place is referred to as "purgatory" by the fan Wiki, which already used "hell" for the dimension of ''Expurgation''. "Purgatory" is canonically named "hell" in a poster from ''[=DedmosRebuilt=]'', and Krinkels has referred to it as "[[ Regular Hell]]", while the dimension in ''Expurgation'' is called "Auditor[Hell]" near the end of the episode when Hank is given powerful weapons.** The art-style of the new characters' assets introduced in ''[=DedmosRebuilt=]'' is nicknamed the "Dissenter style" by fans, even though ''Dissenter'' is the second episode to use these new sprites. * FollowTheLeader: ''WebAnimation/BunnyKill'', ''WebAnimation/MaximumNinja'', ''WebAnimation/XionicMadness'' and ''WebAnimation/{{REALM}}'', with several other series inspired by Madness Combat. Madness Combat itself is a descendant of stick figure fighting animations (''WebAnimation/XiaoXiao'', mainly).* GodNeverSaidThat: ** It's common to assume that any character with a plain design is a grunt, and therefore that Hank, Sanford and Deimos were grunts before they got unique clothes. In reality, characters with plain designs can be many things, including civilians; "grunt" is simply the lowest rank in the AAHW and they just so happen to have a plain appearance. ** Plenty of people think that 2BDamned's name is Doc based on the description of ''[=DISSENTER=]'', when in reality, the description implies that his name is ''anything but'' Doc. ("He's not even a real doctor, why do people keep calling him Doc?"). Doc is actually a FanNickname that people took seriously, and that Krinkels acknowledged in the description.* HeyItsThatSound: Dedicated VideoGame/CounterStrike 1.X players will probably recognize certain pained grunts as well as some gunfire sounds.* MemeAcknowledgement: Krinkels took notice of the FanNickname of "Doc" for 2BDamned in the description of ''[=DISSENTER=]''. Some fans have assumed that [[AscendedFanon the name is now canon]], but this has never been made explicit.* PromotedFanboy: ** Jose Ortiz, aka [[ "Mindchamber"]] is long-time a Madness fan who worked on many tributes in the form of games, animations and 3D models inspired by the series. [[ He is now one of Team Madness]] working on ''VideoGame/MadnessProjectNexus2'' as a consultant and contributing artist.** A Madness fan called Cethic sometimes contribute to the episodes' arts since ''Expurgation''.** Since ''Expurgation'', a Madness fan named [=CturiX=] is taking care of the episodes' sound effects.** Kelzad, a Madness fan-animator and creator of the ''WebAnimation/{{REALM}}'' Series, made the design of Scrapeface in ''An Experiment''.* ReferencedBy:** The Mystic Woods from ''[[VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy Epic Battle Fantasy 5]]'' have statues of Tricky and two zombies.** In the flash game - ''VideoGame/PortalDefenders'' - the FinalBoss Wadolf [[FlunkyBoss summons]] conventional Madness zombies.* SequelGap: Present throughout the entire series, but the longest one was between ''Abrogation'' and ''Expurgation''. Krinkels stated multiple times that Episode 11 was a constant work-in-progress, but that other ventures such as ''VideoGame/MadnessProjectNexus2'' limited the amount of time he had to work on it. ''Abrogation'' was released in June 2011, ''Expurgation'' was eventually released in ''January 2019''.* TheWikiRule: [[ The Madness Combat Wiki]]* WordOfDante: Some people believes that Krinkels' videos and some fan videos are actually one big shared universe, when in reality only Krinkels' videos are canon while those made by other people are simply fanon. This mostly happens with ''WebAnimation/{{REALM}}'' and its characters since it's a fan animation series that uses the canon animations as plot points, so it's not rare to see people believing that Kelzad and Yeelon are in the cloning tubes from ''Inundation'', despite them not being canon characters.* WordOfGod: Krinkels sometimes answers questions about the Madness Combat universe on his [[ CuriousCat account]], though some of the answers are obvious jokes.
