  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Eddsworld is a British slapstick-heavy webtoon which follows the lives of four (later just three) characters: the eponymous, cola-obsessed Edd, Matt, the square-chinned vain one, Tord, the trigger happy one from Norway (until he was Put on a Bus) and Tom, who has no eyes. "Eddisodes" were released sporadically and follow no real story arc.

They usually get involved in strange adventures, involving, in no particular order: Zombies, Evil Zombie Santa, Mummies, Future Counterparts, Talking Lemons, Clones, Canadians among other things, Hilarity Ensues.

Originally found on Newgrounds, its YouTube channel can be found here, and the main site (which includes Eddsworld comics) was found here. However, due to a problem with malware, the site went down. It is unknown whether or not the site will be brought back up.

After a long battle with cancer, creator Edd Gould passed away on March 25, 2012. His friends have confirmed he left half of a two part episode completed, and it will be fully completed, and they suggested the series will continue. His passing sparked a heavy reaction from the community, and many animations have been made in tribute to him, including a collaboration project between many major web animators. The final Eddisode voiced and animated by Edd was released on Youtube 2 June 2012. The missing animation was filled in by Paul Ter Voourde who will do the animation for the upcoming Eddisodes. There's a pledge drive to fund the new Eddisodes with all the money made from merchadising and advertising going to cancer charities. See this video for details.


Tropes featured include

  • Adorkable: Edd can be like this.
  • Art Evolution: Their earlier videos were very blocky, but as time went on, they developed a better art style.
  • Author Avatar: All the main characters are named after, voiced by and vaguely based off the creator and his friends.
    • Sadly, Edd is no longer played by himself due to Edd's original voice actor dying (see the trope below)
    • In a less tragic case, Tomska has quit the series after the "The End" 2 parter and will be replaced by another voice actor. In the End, itself a new Voice actor voiced Tord
  • Author Existence Failure
  • Bad Future: Subverted, The Edd from the future sees it as a bad future because Soda's been banned (desiring to kill himself in the past before it can happen), the other two seem just fine with the future.
  • Bad Santa: Zanta Claws fits this trope to an A. Fortunately the Real Santa also exists.
  • Berserk Button: Tom loves Smirnoff but God help you if you give him Diet Smirnoff.
  • The Blank: In Comic 82: Ignored. Lampshaded when Tom asks how Edd and Matt breathe.
  • Bonus Stage: Parodied in Not-So-Special Stage, where it's the ENTIRE GAME.
  • Brick Joke: Edd smashes Tom's bass in one episode. It's referenced two times in future episodes that release a good deal later.
  • Butt Monkey: Tom and Matt end up on the receiving end of a lot of abuse in the cartoons, although Matt may arguably get it worse because it's obvious Edd and Tom don't like him.
  • Can't Take Anything with You: Referenced and averted in WTFuture.

Tom: [censored].

  • Token Evil Teammate: Tom tends to be the most sour and hateful out of all of them. Especially around Christmas.
  • Trigger Happy: Tord. He brings guns in almost every episode he was in.
  • Visual Pun: A lot of the early comics consist of these.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Edd is saved from death by accidentally discovering the Grim Reapers' one weakness: Gravy.
    • Literally Weaksauce!
  • Zombie Apocalypse: 5 videos, 4 of them are connected, but the last one is completely unconnected to the "Zombeh Attack" series.
