Metalocalypse

TV Show • 2006 • Comedy  

Report
Metalocalypse is an American animated television series, created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, which premiered on August 6, 2006 on Adult Swim. The television program centers around the larger than life death metal band Dethklok, and often portrays dark and macabre content, including such subjects as violence, death, and the drawbacks of fame, with extremely hyperbolic black humor; which accounts for the cartoon's consistent TV-MA rating. The show can be seen as both a parody and celebration of heavy metal culture. The music, written by guitarist/creator Brendon Small, is credited to the band, and is featured in most of the episodes. The animation is often carefully synced to the music, with the chord positions and fingering of the guitar parts shown in some detail. One of the trademarks of the show is having the usual "bleeps" for extreme profanity replaced by pinch harmonics.
This tv show contains 140 potentially triggering events.

The main theme of the episode Fatherklok; Skwisgaar has numerous bastard children and any woman that has sex with him has to sign a waiver dissolving him of any legal paternity, and he himself feels abandoned by the fact that he never knew his own father due to growing up with a promiscuous mother.

Depends on your definition since the reason why four of the five members of Dethklok are often cruel to each other and other people is because they were victims of child abuse (although granted in Nathan’s case his parents are mostly decent and he’s still a jerk).

Alcoholism throughout the band to varying degrees. Casual drinking, party drinking, drinking to excess, drinking to life-threatening amounts. These are done for any reason, including in response to stress and trauma.

Dr. Rockzo; he committed statutory rape on a 14 year old and wrote a song about it, and while he did go to jail for it and was the reason why his band broke up the end of the episode very heavily indicates that he wants to groom his former victim’s own daughter so he is VERY much still one

s1e17 a clown puts his hand down a band member's pants (they scream and get him out of there). s3e9 implied prison assault, nothing shown. S3e9 an adult character has a sexual encounter with a minor (partially shown) and sees her as his soulmate. S4e10 a character suddenly pounces on another out of sexual frustration but it cuts away

A semi-important member of the Tribunal is killed near the end of Season 1 and replaced. A main character seemingly dies at the end of Season 2 but he comes back shortly after. And in Season 4 a supporting character is violently killed by the main antagonist…and that’s not even getting into the movie 😳

There are also other, slightly less spoilerly abductions thoughout the series such as the rest of the band kidnapping Nathan for an intervention in S1E18, a teenager being among MANY imprisoned extrajudicially for pirating music in S2E3, journalists abducted and brutalized to retract negative statements in S3E2, and Toki being fake kidnapped for a surprise birthday party in S3E6; among many examples (also protip: Doomstar has its own page)

(S1E6-E7…and mentions in other episodes) Murderface’s backstory involves his parents being killed in a murder-suicide, and we even see their deaths semi on-screen in the latter episode (S2E15) The main theme of the episode Dethdad where a main character’s father is dying of cancer. He does die but not in the way you think (S4E11) A supporting character that’s a father is killed, his child(ren) is absent from the funeral that’s held in the next episode but the band considers him a father figure so it’s meant to carry the same gravity as a parental death.

Murderface was raised by his grandparents because his father killed his mother and then committed suicide. The scene is depicted as shadows and screaming.

9/11 is not alluded to (even among its signature edgelordy jokes) despite being set in the mid to late 2000s and the main antagonists being heavily aligned with US military. That said there are multiple terrorist attacks throughout the series and I’m tempted to change my answer to account for how there are multiple occasions of major cities shown in ruins which make it true in the secondary sense

Use of the T-slur to refer to a presumably cis male in a derogatory way. This is fortunately the only use of transphobic slurs in the series but there’s still other kinds of transphobic content even in the same episode

Pickles ,who is not necessarily canonically trans but allegedly Brendon Small confirmed that him not having a penis in Rehabklok was a deliberate choice, is no more sexual than the other five band members and while there is a conversation to be have about groupie culture it is consensual by the terms of the in-universe agreement. It is at least canon that the groupies are carded so there’s no underage sex going on.

Although you could argue Fertilityklok has a trans-coded character (cis woman with masculine features that are painted as undesirable) that won’t take no for an answer

I mean technically Skwisgaar is heavily implied to be bisexual by the creators (the specific words is that his sexuality is “European”…also god the sake of transparency I’m having a hard time finding the source of this quote and even if I could it’s meant to be ambiguous so grain of salt) and he is not exactly a pinnacle of ethical non-monogamy. Although arguably it’s more the general promiscuous bisexual stereotype, the vast majority of his hookups are purely casual sex with groupies and the only time he’s seen with bed with a man is a three way in S2E13 with no cheating as far as we can tell. Although the subject is brought up in S2E7 when he claims that marriage is only good for tax breaks and adultery

Not explicitly confirmed but it’s noted that Nathan did not speak until he was five years old so some possible autistic coding is going on there. Also personally sus of Charles albeit some could make a case for the most of the main cast frankly. Closest we get to misrepresentation is Nathan in later seasons having supernatural abilities but this isn’t explicitly connected to neurodivergency

s2e5 and s4e8. Both episodes involve their perceptions of theirselves being affected by public and private scrutiny of others, and them trying to change for it. S4e8 more specifically deals with dysmorphia, with themes of self-hatred and body alteration (plastic surgery, corsets, tanning, injections).

It is a catchphrase of one of the main characters, and is said occasionally by the rest of the group and side characters.

While the show does use the R-slur a few times (granted mostly to show how immature the band is, albeit not really called out in-universe either). Autism itself is not really made fun of, and in fact that there has been some speculation that Nathan might be autistic-coded to which if that’s the case he’s treated no less immaturely than the rest of Dethklok and he’s arguably one of the more well adjusted members at least by comparison. Although in S2E1 they call Offdensen (who may have some autistic traits but isn’t really confirmed) a “robot” and other variants of emotionless which you could argue borders on it

End of s1e9, end of s3e3 (probably the most upsetting but still comedic intent), and in other mass deaths as well

Especially all over the place. What's also worth noting is that for the versions on DVD and streaming Seasons 1 & 2 are censored (in classic network TV fashion where the swearing is bleeped), but 3 and 4 are not; so keep that in mind

Well half-right anyway, the F-slur is sometimes used but not super often. Albeit they do indeed say “gay” as an insult a lot. Also fun fact, the above T-slur is only used once and the guy dies as a result of his hate speech so that’s something

You could argue that while there’s no obvious antisemitic intent some common tropes pop up concerning the Tribunal being a parody of the “Illuminati style group that secretly controls the world” trope (and multiple episodes confirm that they literally control the media). There are also a couple jokes making fun of N@zis and Jewishness is the subject of an edgy non-sequintor in S4E12

Maybe (see the misgendering comment above). Although surprisingly not a lot, albeit there are occasions where men voicing women are played for laughs, and in the case of S3E6 there is some unfortunate transphobic subtext in that a cis woman is presented as unattractive due to having masculine features (made even weirder by the fact that an offensive comedian that uses the T slur is killed albeit he’s more killed for racist remarks than transphobia)

Nathan has indigenous ancestry and is often called "Tonto" by others in a derogatory manner. In s4e04, the Tribunal expert smashes together a bunch of slurs and derogatory terms into nonsensical speech.

Japanese guy with a stereotypical accent (S2E11) and depicting a Middle Eastern country as barbaric (S4E6…and unfortunately that one is plot important). In my opinion S1E14 BluesKlok is a decent look into blues and how African-American culture shapes it (if admittedly involving a spoof of the “magical Negro” trope) but even then all three examples I listed involve BIPOC characters voiced by white dudes so yeeeeeah 😬. Also dishonorable mention to a woman in S3E6 that is cis as far as we know but has transphobic coding

In addition to at least three instances of the R-slur over the series’ run (see below) Edgar is subjected to rather ableist jokes by Dethklok about being a wheelchair user in his debut episode

Okay there’s nothing egregiously offensive said about asexual people but I ESPECIALLY don’t recommend the episode Fertilityklok for having messaging valuing sex over relationships. Granted one we’re not supposed to be take seriously since the characters are meant to be idiots and assholes ,but could still be rather be invalidating to asexual people (albeit in a way that I’m not sure is inversely validating to AlloAros either, I admittedly partially blame that on the writers being mostly straight allo men as far as I can tell). In general the series is weirdly inconsistent on if Toki is into sex or not, and the latter is framed as a bit of a childish quality

Sort of? A character does this with leeches while singing Al Jolson. Although to a lesser extent you have the awkwardness of a few BIPOC characters voiced by white guys doing rather thick accents.

S03E09 features a side character's pedophilia scandal receiving sexual acts from a 14-year-old girl while he himself is an adult. he faces actual consequences for this in the narrative, but jokes and lighthearted comments about it are also present and might leave one feeling pretty uncomfortable.

Toki is a survivor of extreme religious abuse. Religion (just in general) is also the focus of an episode appropriately titled Religionklok and more importantly in Season 4 we’re introduced to an important faction called The Church of the Black Klok that’s heavily inspired by Catholicism

It’s a show that’s an affectionate parody of heavy metal so there is a lot of Satanic imagery and at least two episodes dealing with demons/hell such as a devil of Blues Music in S1E14 (Bluesklok) and a cold open depicting hell in a dream sequence in S2E1 (Dethecution)

Discussions of sex throughout the show, and there are scenes before and after sex, but I wouldn't say any "sex scenes." Sexual and non-sexual nudity. Skwisgaar is shown having sex in a music video but this is just acting, there's even behind the scenes footage of it. He also has a sexual encounter on screen but the audio is just him dirty talking and the visual is a still image of his silhouette.

A man has intrusive sexual thoughts about animals (which is shown via stuff like a dog in a bikini or a toucan with a ball gag) along with other bizarre imagery though we’re probably not supposed to take it super literally, probably more supposed to indicate that his internalized homophobia associates normal expressions of homosexuality on the same level as zoophilia

No albeit it is never brought up in the episode Fatherklok when it comes to the hundreds of not thousands of women that had bastard children with Skwisgaar, but honestly that’s more of a weird nitpick. The only mention of the subject is an old radio interview where Dethklok takes a centrist view of the topic “we think death is awesome but we also think it’s awesome to have a horrible life”, not sure if this is 100% canon though
