Fatty Ding-Dongs or Fat Kid is a foster kid adopted by the Members of Dethklok under the mistaken assumption that it could be counted as a tax credit.
Before being adopted by Dethklok, he was in and out of foster homes for 14 years (presumably his age). He appears in the episode Fatklok. He was abused by Dethklok due to their irresponsibility, to the point where they treated him like a pet more than a child, even (supposedly) being neutered by Dethklok's doctor. He also couldn't speak; instead, he squealed and grunted like a pig.
He accidentally caused the death of The London Philharmonic Orchestra. He seemed to dislike Murderface, to the point he ate his civil war shoes, which resulted in Dethklok abandoning him in The Dethklok Home For Wayward Kitties. He was mauled by the wayward kitties, but Nathan says he will be fine since he's fat.
He makes a cameo appearance in the "Dethharmonic" music video where he plays the role of Uncle Sam. At the end of the video Nathan gives him an envelope which explodes in his hands.
In October 2007, during an interview with Rob from Metal Injection (Brain Damage Podcast), Brendon Small (as Nathan Explosion) said "I still think about that goofball everyday." When asked if the band kept in touch with Fatty, Nathan responded "Every once in a while, we'll get together and send him a pound of flour and, like a case of Capri Suns... All we can do is hope it gets to him 'cause he's still on Krangor Island: the home of wayward kitties. We know he's ok. We hope he's made friends with the kitties and found peace in the world." Nathan then goes on to explain that it is important for parents to be able to abandon their children because "if you don't want them, they shouldn't be there."
Fatty appears in the non-canon (one-shot) comic book Dethklok vs. The Goon.
When Brendon Small was asked about Fatty's ulimate fate, he replied "Fatty Ding Dong is still living amongst the kitties. He may have feline AIDS." Fatty makes a brief appearance in The Doomstar Requiem, commenting on Toki's possible fate, thought it's unknown whether he learned to speak or just to type.
