|Role(s):||Comic relief, neutral|
The hot dog vendor is a comic relief character in the Madness Combat series who wears a stained apron and tends to a hot dog stand. The hot dog vendor has made two canon appearances to date. He was first seen manning his hot dog stand in Madness Combat 6: Antipathy and selling a hot dog to Tricky. He was next seen in his own shop in Madness Combat 8: Inundation.
In Madness Inundation, the hot dog vendor runs a shop in the Auditor's building. He was selling hot dogs to an agent and A.T.P. engineer when suddenly Jesus bursts and kills his two customers, sparing the hot dog vendor. His fate remains unknown following the destruction of the Auditor's building by the normality restoration.
In Incident: 011A, the hot dog vendor appeared in the end of the animation, as a janitor, however, rather than a hot dog seller. After Mag Agent: Torture's head explodes, the grunt who killed him wipes blood off his hand and onto the vendor's apron before leaving. The vendor mops the bloody floor until the animation ended.
In Incident: 101A, after Tricky shoots up the birthday party and leaves, the hot dog vendor arrives, with the bloodstain from Incident: 011A still present on his apron. He is shocked to see the carnage left in the room.
