Current revision as of 09:14, 22 December 2019

Many Homestar Runner characters lack certain body parts that most people in the real world would have. Despite this, they can still do the things that everyday people are capable of. However, they do take note of their unusual structures.

Contents

[edit] Arms

Homestar's invisible arms?
See main article: Lack of Visible Arms

A number of characters (most notably Homestar Runner) do not appear to have visible arms, but are commonly seen manipulating objects as though they had limbs. This is sometimes called out directly by various characters, and occasional references are made to this fact. The specific method by which "armless" characters can manipulate objects and their surroundings has never been fully revealed.

[edit] Coach Z's Face

Horrendous Spitter

Various references are made to parts of Coach Z's face that are not visible to the viewer:

[edit] Marzipan's Legs

"Well, don't tell anybody, but... I don't really have legs."

While sometimes Marzipan does not appear to have legs, a few other toons claim otherwise.

  • The House That Gave Sucky Treats — A rip in Marzipan's Joey Ramone costume suggests that she has no legs, and a bulky, dress-shaped body.
  • Email stand-up — Coach Z thanks Marzipan for her wonderful clogging.
  • Where's The Cheat? — Whenever Marzipan is seen sitting, her skirt folds up as if she has knees, but in this toon she is lying on her couch and her skirt doesn't sag.

  • Email date — Marzipan complains that Homestar won't stop kicking her in the shins.
  • That A GhostOld-Timey Marzipan's skeleton shows bones throughout her skirt.

  • A Decemberween Mackerel — Marzipan leaves a single, wide, unbroken trail in the snow.
  • The House That Gave Sucky Tricks — One of the "scary shoes" is purple with a pattern similar to the bottom of Marzipan's dress, indicating that it likely belongs to her.
  • Characters from Yonder WebsiteCharacter 5 (Yonder Website Marzipan) "bends at the knees" by leaning over forwards.

[edit] Ears

"I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever write a song about Sibbie."

None of the main characters appear to have ears, yet they still act as though they do.

[edit] Fingers

Most of the main characters do not have visible fingers, but they still behave like they have them.

[edit] Teeth

"Teeth?"

It is debatable whether the characters have teeth (most notably Homestar). Most characters have not yet been shown with teeth.

  • Super NES, Email old comics, Exaggerations, Career Day, Crystal Fortress — Strong Bad is stylized with teeth.
  • Email replacement — When Strong Bad asks Bubs what to do with Strong Sad if he sees him watching TV, Bubs says to "kick him in the teeth", to which Strong Bad replies that he may not have teeth.
  • Email death metal — After watching a preview video of Taranchula's song "The Decoupage", Strong Bad says he feels like he needs to brush his teeth.
  • Email underlings — When Strong Bad tells Homestar he has cilantro stuck between his teeth, Homestar says "teeth?" as if he is shocked by the idea that he has any, even though he was shown to have huge teeth in theme song (though this could be imaginary). In dictionary, Strong Bad confirms this by using a dictionary to knock out one of Homestar's teeth, which is still enormous.
  • Jibblies 2 — Strong Bad's Beetlejuice costume comes with a set of green teeth floating in his mouth.
  • Baddest of the Bands — Bubs advises Strong Bad that "lying through your teeth" is a good way to get people to accept a security jacket. Strong Bad asks if "lying through your rectangular mouth" would also work, to which Bubs responds, "Yeah, I suppose that'd work, toothless."
  • Strong Bad Classics! — Strong Sad has apparently had his wisdom teeth removed "again".
  • Fan Costumes 2015 — Strong Bad mentions that he has a dentist, despite his lack of teeth.
  • The Actions You Can Do — Homestar Runner is stylized with teeth.
