Beginning in 2007, prior to a full Halloween toon being released, a teaser would be posted showing all the characters in silhouette. Strong Bad's teaser costume is always an elaborate and recognizable sci-fi/horror figure that doesn't fit Strong Bad's proportions, and is never actually in the finished toon.

Image Costume Comments From
The Alien The Alien is the extraterrestrial antagonist of the Alien film series.

In Jibblies 2, Strong Bad says they were sold out of this costume. Coach Z refers to it as simply "the alien", prompting Strong Sad to frantically interject with "xenomorph". This is the only teaser costume that has been mentioned in the Halloween toon.

Jibblies 2 Teaser
Predator The Predator is a fictional extraterrestrial species featured in the Predator science-fiction franchise. The Predator franchise has had occasional crossovers with the Alien franchise, the source of Strong Bad's previous teaser costume. Most in the Graveyard Teaser
RoboCop RoboCop is a fictional robotically enhanced Detroit police officer, and is the main protagonist in the film series of the same name. Doomy Tales of the Macabre Teaser
Bug The Bugs are a planet-colonizing extraterrestrial race in the Starship Troopers franchise. Halloween Safety
Graboid The Graboid is a fictional species of sandworm that acts as the main antagonist of the Tremors franchise.

This is the design from the Tremors movie poster — an enlarged version of one of the creature's tentacles — rather than the actual monster design in the film. The entire teaser visually references said poster, including the position of the moon.

The House That Gave Sucky Tricks Teaser
The Demogorgon The Demogorgon, named after the Dungeons & Dragons character, is the antagonistic creature which attacks from the other dimension (the Upside Down) in the Stranger Things series.

The costume shows movement, unlike previous years (the mouth opens and closes when talking). Strong Bad comments in the teaser that he wishes he'd followed through with his silhouette costumes.

Later That Night... Teaser
Ridley Ridley is a fictional draconic extraterrestrial hailing from the planet Zebes, and one of the main antagonists of the Metroid series. This sprite specifically was used in the game Super Metroid.

This costume again shows movement. It screeches, eats Character 2, and flies offscreen.

Haunted Photo Booth Teaser
BigDog BigDog is a real-life robot built by Boston Dynamics.

This costume again shows movement, as he jumps up and down and slightly leans back when Humidibot talks to him.

Mr. Poofers Must Die Teaser
The Thing from The Thing is a parasitic extraterrestrial life-form that assimilates, then imitates other organisms in the film of the same name. The creature takes on many forms in the movie; Strong Bad's costume specifically portrays a scene when the Thing's severed head grows legs and eye stalks.

This is the first of Strong Bad's costumes since 2015 to not show movement in the teaser, though the storybook characters do.
