World Cup fever has been spreading around the world since the kick off of the iconic tournament a few weeks ago and its symptoms include a slew of World Cup fans coming out of the woodwork. Mashable writer and creative Max Knoblauch decided to depict some of those fans in his funny series of illustrations.

Some people are true fans, some are temporary and some are new to the soccer scene. Knoblauch comically categorizes the different types of fans, new and old, into different personalities that range from the ‘Alcoholics,’ who use the tournament as an excuse to party, to ‘Mr. Way-too-into-it,’ who is known for obnoxiously showing his team spirit -- even if it's in an inappropriate setting.
