Ye approacheth yon INTERSECTION. Obvious exits are NORTH, SOUTH, and DENNIS.

Dennis is a name frequently used, especially in Thy Dungeonman. The Brothers Chaps also pay homage to the comic strip Dennis the Menace in several toons through silhouettes, and reveal it in their DVD commentaries. Dennis is sometimes used as one of the "obvious exits" in the Thy Dungeonman games, its opposite being "Not Dennis". In Thy Dungeonman, he wears a sporty frock coat and a long "jimberjam" (which he purchased on sale at a discount market), and he enjoys pacing around nervously. Thy Dungeonman thinks Dennis is boring to have a conversation with. He is quite knowledgeable about what parapets are, and will happily share this information with Thy Dungeonman if given a trinket, allowing him to escape from yon dungeon. In Thy Dungeonman 2, Dennis has a significantly smaller role as an Easter egg. Typing "dennis" will result in the message "Ye hasn't seen Dennis in a fortnight. Maybe luck is on your side." Dennis was later seen in web comics in "The Animated Adventures of Thy Dungeonman" as a cartoon form of the word "Dennis" chasing "Ye Flask" for unknown reasons. In Trogdor!! The Board Game, there is an item called "Ye Flask of Dennis".

Outside of the Thy Dungeonman series, several other mentions of Dennis have surfaced from time to time in the Homestar Runner body of work. In the old Message Bored, Matt Chapman used an avatar that cycled through several actors named Dennis. In 8-Bit is Enough, a fake credits sequence mentions Dennis as "Best Dennis". A fake video thumbnail in Disk 4 of 12 - FriendlyWare is supposedly a "DENNIS%" run of Hallrunner.
