In the fourth season's first episode, Fanklok, Dethklok visits Klokikon, a convention for fans of the band.[1] Furries are among the attendees and are briefly seen and mentioned, those being a squirrel fursuiter dressed as Murderface, a wolf fursuiter dressed as Skwisgaar, and a rabbit fursuiter dressed as Pickles.[2][3]

Dethklok reacts to all the convention fans with disgust, including the furries.

Additional furry art[edit]

Disgusted or not, this did not stop furry artists from creating Rule 88's fan art of the characters.[4][5][6][7][8][9] A lot of Metalocalypse furry artwork tends to depict Dethklok as the same animals - Nathan as an alligator, Skwisgaar as a bird, Toki as a rabbit, Pickles as an octopus, and Murderface as a white tiger - because of Season 2, Episode 9 "Dethcarraldo", in which these species are depicted as the characters' inner animals.[10]
