Incidental Art is an integral part of the artwork for the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks.

It consists of small pieces of filler art dotted throughout the gamebooks which are used to break up the monotony of the printed text and to add to the atmosphere of the adventures. Drawn by the same artists who provided the main illustrations, Incidental Art typically consists of five or six small illustrations related to the theme of the gamebook they appear in. Each incidental illustration appears numerous times throughout the book, and may appear in more than one size.

The following table lists Fighting Fantasy Incidental Art by gamebook, and records the following pieces of information:

  • Title of book
  • Number of different pieces of Incidental Art
  • Brief description of each piece of Incidental Art
  • Number of occurrences of each piece of Incidental Art in smaller and larger sizes
