Cannon Fodder are the infinite minions of the enemy or the hordes of civilians that stand in the path of destruction. Their sole purpose is to be slaughtered endlessly and, hopefully, in the most humorous way possible. Tactikal commanders will use Fodder to their advantage, having them draw fire away from important and capable units so that even more destruction may be had. Sometimes, a Hero will arise from their ranks, first becoming a fully fledged Minifig, but mostly Fodder are happy to die horribly and often, drowning battlefields everywhere in their blood.
Fodder are cheap units, mechanically, and are equipped with equally cheap weaponry called Mook Weapons. They appear in endless streams on battlefields pouring out from objects called Spawners.
