— Johnathan Twinkletits

Dr. Johnathan Twinkletits (pronounced twink-LET-its, deliberately avoiding the obvious pronunciation) is an insane band therapist, and parody of performance coach Phil Towle[1] and producer Bob Rock.[2]

He was formerly a member of The Amazelingtons, whom he killed after they kicked him out. He called his deceased bandmates to gloat about how he was currently in the biggest band of all time—despite not actually being a member of Dethklok, the band proper.

Despite his initially malicious intentions, after his accident he continued working for Dethklok, acting as the band’s full time therapist.



Discussing his concerns with the band.

In season one episode “Performanceklok”, Twinkletits appeared as the central antagonist when he was hired by Offdensen to keep Dethklok from having another violent fight on-stage after a particular incident caused several violent riots during a concert held in Jordan. However, the Tribunal hopes that with the help of his "extreme" methods, Dethklok will eventually disband. Twinkletits at first initially isn't accepted by the members of Dethklok because of the fact they aren't accepting of the concept of going to therapy, but over time he wins them over and helps them become "friendly" to each other and lose their brutal ways. He also awards the band members with banana stickers for good behavior, and makes himself an official member of Dethklok. His act of murdering his own band is discovered by Toki when he overheard him talking over the phone, but Toki isn't believed until Nathan tells everyone that he had noticed that things had gone out of control ever since Twinkletits arrived, and the band unanimously decide to fire him after their frontman says they can fire anyone that are employed by them (but not after giving themselves a raise).


The wolves.

Toward the end of the episode, Dethklok confronts Twinkletits after he decides to go with them on tour. After Nathan reveals that the band has figured out that they can simply buy banana stickers as psychological validation and the band fires Twinkletits, he loses his self-control and attempts to kill them. However, he steps and slips on a stray banana sticker left on the floor and falls into Mordhaus' front yard. He survives the long fall, but is attacked and mauled by the yard wolves, with all the band members watching with indifference and slight sympathy, while Nathan records this event with a video camera.



Dr. John Twinkletits after his accident with the yard wolves.

Twinkletits makes a minor reappearance in Season 2 episode Cleanzo. He, surprisingly, had survived the yard wolves who attacked him during his last appearance, but his missing arms have been replaced with mechanical prosthetics, and further cybernetic enhancements are indicated by the slight metallic tinge to his voice. He helps Toki make a difference in Dr. Rockzo's life and wean him off cocaine.


Doc Twinle Tits

After Toki suffered a phobia attack from seeing a bicentennial quarter, Dr. Twinkletits gave him liquid sedatives in order to calm him down, at which point he "rock talks" into Toki's mind, asking him to talk about his childhood as to find out why Toki keeps helping Doctor Rockzo via the bands request. Toki reveals that, aside from having extremely brutal chores, a punishment commonly used on him was to be trapped in a deep hole where he kept a clown doll to keep him company. Later on, Dr. Twinkletits tells the band to get their money back, they must save Doctor Rockso to get him to perform and the only way to do that is find Dory McClean.

Army of the Doomstar[]


The final battle.

While absent throughout the majority of the film, Twinkletits makes a comeback for the final battle with the real Army of the Doomstar beside Charles, Jean-Pierre, and thousands of other fans.


  • It looks like he is one of the eight men appearing on the monitors in the Tribunal meeting room, however this is like a case of reused character design, a common occurrence in Metalocalypse, especially given that during the episode where he debuts they are talking about him as if he is not there.
  • Like many characters in the series, his name is a play on words though his a little more obvious than most as it is a just play on the spacing and pronunciation. Upon seeing his name, most people would assume it's "twinkle tits".
