== Biography ==
 +
'''Strong Bad''' is one of the most well-known characters in the [[Homestar Runner (body of work)|Homestar Runner]] body of work. Originally, he started out as the villain who tried to cheat his way to the top but was always doomed to fail before [[Homestar Runner]]. In the manner that minor characters become [[Wikipedia:breakout character|breakout characters]], he's now less of a villain and more of a highly expanded form of comic relief, with his irascible sarcasm and rough voice seeming to make him ever more popular with fans of the website.
-
'''Strong Bad''' is the most popular character on [http://www.homestarrunner.com homestarrunner.com], Strong Bad answers [[Strong Bad Email |e-mails]] with a passion, usually every Monday or Tuesday. He's [[Strong Sad]]'s big brother and [[Strong Mad]]'s little brother. His is the dominant personality and he loves to push everyone around: he's often ridiculing Strong Sad, abusing [[Homestar Runner|Homestar]], or prank-calling [[Marzipan_(character)|Marzipan]]. He has boxing gloves for hands (or are they just on his hands? No one knows for sure), a Mexican wrestling mask for a head, and his favorite saying is (or was for a time) "holy crap."
+
He [[Strong Bad Email|answers emails]] with a passion, and will [[Poorly Written Emails|make fun]] of their grammar, punctuation, and spelling—although he's not overly worried about [[Strong Bad's Spelling|his own]]. He also hates to be asked about [[How do you type with boxing gloves on?|how he manages to type with boxing gloves on]]. He usually does what he does best when he gets certain emails, one of which falls into this category: '''[[DELETED]]!!''' He also writes, illustrates, and narrates the series of [[Teen Girl Squad]] comics. He has also [[Books Defaced by Strong Bad|"written"]] at least 5 books: [[kids' book|Everyone is Different]], [[Strumstar Hammer]], [[That Time of Year]], [[Strong Bad reads "The Ocelot and the Porridge Maiden" (Teaser Trailer) - Worldbuilders 2014|Tubky the Typo-Named Tub]], and [[Strong Bad Classics!|The Ocelot and the Porridge Maiden]]. He also seems to enjoy art, teaching lessons on how to draw [[Trogdor]] in [[dragon]], and a star in [[Fan Costumes 2016]]. These lessons have since been expanded into a semi-weekly feature, [[Skills of an Artist]]. In recent years, he has also become known for his Twitter account, [[@StrongBadActual]] (and to a lesser extent, his [[@strongbadactual (Instagram)|Instagram]] account).
-
He is from Parts Unknown, as we learned during [[Marshmallow's Last Stand (toon)|Marshmallow's Last Stand]].  Marshmallow's Last Stand is also the only time we see under his mask, when a bomb blows a chunk of his mask off.  There is nothing inside!  Strong Bad may not even have a head, though this is debatable since Marshmallow's Last Stand has been removed from the site.
+
Strong Bad is the middle child of [[The Brothers Strong]]. His is the dominant personality and he loves to push everyone around. He states that both of his brothers are "galactically incapable of [[Noun-Verb|friend-have]]" in the email [[imaginary]], one of the very few true insults he has ever made. He's often abusing Homestar, [[Kicking The Cheat|kicking]] [[The Cheat]], [[Marzipan's Answering Machine|prank-calling]] [[Marzipan]], or [[Strong Bad and Strong Sad's Relationship|tormenting]] [[Strong Sad]] (although it's been hinted that they [[The Secrets That I Keep|got along]] when they were younger). Although he seems to dislike or positively loathe most people, he enjoys the company of [[Bubs]], The Cheat (his ever-diligent lackey), [[Senor Cardgage]], [[Strong Mad]] (his older brother), and, [[Strong Bad and Pom Pom's Relationship|to a lesser extent]], [[Pom Pom]].
-
His powers include popping off the cap of a cold one (or Homestar's cap) using only his mind (and the blue diamond thing in his head), as well his mysterious "Powers of Persuasion" (PoP), which no living The Cheat can resist.

Strong Bad has red boxing gloves for hands (which always have square window reflections on them, no matter where he is; in [[Fan Costumes 2016]], he claims they are A+ #1 All-Pro Panache), round green eyes, and a red [[Wikipedia:Lucha libre|lucha libre]] mask with a blue diamond and black markings for a head (as suggested in [[some kinda robot]]). Although he claims that his mask is his face, he once removed it in [[the chair]]. This act caused him a lot of pain but no lasting visible damage. His mask is most likely his face, however, considering that his skull contains the outline of his mask design, and many other clues. He possibly has stretchy skin, as he appeared to stretch the mask from behind [[Le Restige]]. His mouth is rectangular, though it often becomes round when he says words with the letter "o". Most of the time, Strong Bad's mouth is in a slight frown, but there are occasions where he [[Strong Bad Smiling|smiles]]. He also wears shiny black pants and red boots. He usually doesn't wear a [[Strong Bad Wearing a Shirt|shirt]]; according to him, it's better to [[suntan|show off his abs]].
-
He is a stickler for grammar and spelling, and hates it when asked "Hey, Strong Bad, how do you type with boxing gloves on?". He usually does what he does best when he gets an e-mail like that: '''DELETED!!!'''
+
Strong Bad rules the land of [[Strong Badia]], a barren field behind the [[Wikipedia:Dumpster (term)|dumpsters]] that is completely devoid of any sentient life. One of his favorite sayings is (or was for a time) "[[holy crap]]", though he hates it when people use the word "crap" when [[Crapfully Yours|signing emails]]. He frequently mangles words, as seen in [[army]]. ("We're a one man army. Er, a three man one-y. [[Three-to-one marny]]?") It has also been [[road trip|implied]] that he wets the bed, a fact that he attempts to [[Blatant Lies|cover up]] with little success. However, he seems to sleep instead on [[the couch]] in his [[Basement of the Brothers Strong|basement]], frequently [[Couch Mumbling|mumbling]] video game titles, sometimes holding a bag of [[Potate]] potato chips. Strong Bad also seems to collect [[eggs]], as seen in [[morning routine]], and he keeps them in the couch.
-
His Halloween costumes over the years have been [[Wikipedia:Carmen Miranda|Carmen Miranda]], [[Wikipedia:Carmen Sandiego|Carmen Sandiego]], Homestar as [[Wikipedia:Angus Young|Angus Young]], Ozone (from the movie [http://imdb.com/title/tt0086998/ Breakin']) and [[Wikipedia:Cesar Romero|Cesar Romero]] as [[Wikipedia:The Joker|The Joker]].
+
Strong Bad talks a big line, claiming to be a [[Crimes committed by Strong Bad|criminal mastermind]], a [[Exaggerated Strong Bad|muscle man]], and totally popular with the [[Strong Bad's Ladies|ladies]], though there is little evidence of any of these claims, and no shortage of evidence that they are all untrue. Strong Bad refuses to acknowledge this, however, and continues unaffected with his delusions of grandeur. He is convinced that Marzipan likes, or has a crush on, him when in fact she "[[marzipan|really [doesn't] like him at all]]." Due to his delusional opinions about himself, much of what Strong Bad says is [[Blatant Lies|obviously untrue]]. However, Strong Bad also seems to state that he is uncool, as seen in the email [[pizzaz]].

"Strong Bads" was the name of one of the teams in the Nintendo game [http://www.seanbaby.com/nes/w20-04.htm Tag Team Wrestling]. Since Mike Chapman mentioned the game in an [http://www.retrocrush.com/homestar/index2.html interview] talking about Strong Bad, this is probably where the name came from.
+
He loves to listen to [[Limozeen]], [[Taranchula]], and [[Peter Frampton]]. He seems to dislike any band that isn't considered [[Heavy Metal|metal]], such as [[sloshy]], as seen towards the end of [[concert]]. He enjoys watching [[Caleb Rentpayer]]. He also enjoys doing [[caper|Jumble puzzles]] and [[The Interview|baking]]. His love for [[Strong Bad's Technology|older technology]] such as cassette tapes, command prompt computers, old video games (especially those made by [[Videlectrix]]) and laserdiscs, and the titles of events such as "[[monster truck|Awexome Cross '98]]", and "[[TrogdorCon '97]]" suggest that Strong Bad is "living in the past".  Despite his love of the nineties, he seems to despise and destroy anything from any previous decade, like [[Wikipedia:8-track cartridge|8-Tracks]], [[Halloween Potion-ma-jig|TVs that lost their essence in the '70s]], and the [[Nintendo#Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)|Nintendo Entertainment System]]. His unfamiliarity with modern technology seems to have subsided in recent years; he now has [[social media]] accounts and a [[cell phone]] (albeit made by [[Compy Inc.]]).

Strong Bad has sung many self-proclaimed hit singles, his most popular being "[[Everybody to the Limit]]", which The Cheat made an animated music video of. He also stars as the [[Dangeresque (character)|protagonist]] in the blockbuster action series "[[Dangeresque (film series)|Dangeresque]]". He works with Homestar and The Cheat at an [[The Office|unnamed tech company]], though despite this fixed income, he seems to have financial troubles, and often attempts money making solutions of questionable legitimacy and [[other days|burns his bills]] with his [[BMW Lighter]]. His financial troubles might be partly due to his high electric bill, which he claims to be $70,000 in [[environment]]. His dream job, as stated in [[from work]], is to be a 2nd 2nd Assistant Space Whale Scrubber. According to [[The Homestar Runner Enters the Spooky Woods]], he is known far and wide for his enthusiasm for Bic ballpoint pens.

Strong Bad is somewhat prejudiced; he has been [[sb_email 22|banned from the UK]], and often [[little questions|ridicules non-English speakers]] on their emails. In [[Homestar Ruiner]], Strong Bad says that he hates the Swedes and later makes jokes at their expense, though he did say he should get married to the sender of [[magic trick]], possibly partly because she's Swedish. He also does not get on well with [[Dislike of Old People|old people]] or [[for kids|children]], although he claims to have children of his own, including Jeffrey Beffrey Mudgeman, at [[Trailer Home|his second secret home]] where he goes by the name [[Secret Identities#Vance Mudgeman|Vance Mudgeman]]. He doesn't appear to care much for those children either, or perhaps he does and truly believes that "you got to be firm".

+
As evidenced in [[stand-up]], Strong Bad once did [[Wikipedia:standup comedy|stand-up comedy]] as a kid. He apparently wasn't very good, as he tried to make up jokes instead of using natural comedy or rehearsed jokes. However, he doesn't like talking about his act, most likely because his pants fell down in front of the audience, and he ran away embarrassed. Strong Bad also made his own band in [[Baddest of the Bands]] which was known as [[Bands in Baddest Of The Bands|DÖI]]. In it, Strong Bad does the vocals, [[The King of Town]] plays guitar, and [[Homsar]] is on the theremin. Strong Bad didn't really pick who was in this band, as after he signed everyone else up, these two were the only characters left to be in the band. Strong Bad also receives mailed letters and items at his mailbox outside his house. On the side of the mailbox is printed "sb_snailmail.exe", which is a parody of "strongbad_email.exe", the computer command he uses to check his email.

I've been described as cool, awesome, hot, video games, the hottest, and real real hot.

 +
{{main|Strong Bad's Strength}}
 +
There is highly conflicting evidence regarding Strong Bad's strength. For the most part, it is implied that Strong Bad is actually very weak and out of shape and that "Strong Bad" is merely his name and not an accurate description: In the email [[lady fan]], he is unable to do even a single push-up, and states that he used to be able to do only four. In addition, the paper on Strong Bad's desk in the [[Homestar Quiz]] reads "Strong Bad isn't so strong after all. If he tried hard, which of the following could he lift?", and lists the choices as "an ounce", "a weak", "a week", and "pepper". Strong Sad has stated on [[Strong Sad's Lament|his blog]] that Strong Bad's punches do not hurt, compared against Strong Mad's that do. In [[Homestar Ruiner]], Strong Bad is completely incapable of matching Pom Pom's time in the Race to the End of the Race, and can only beat Coach Z's time by heavily cheating. Despite this, though he ultimately resorted to cheating as he had done in the past by having The Cheat whack Homestar Runner with a baseball bat, he was able to keep up with him for the most part. In the email [[pom pom]], Pom Pom easily beats up Strong Bad when he attempts to poke Pom Pom with a pin.
-
'''HOMESTAR RUNNER''': Well, I was gonna get a high five, but, I see I'm already here. And with a snake on my head!
+
On the other hand, in the email [[car]], Strong Bad demonstrates the ability to punch Homestar hard enough to hit and crack the wall, and in the email [[secret identity]], he literally tosses both Homestar and the King of Town out of his house. He can also easily pick up and carry the supposedly 42-pound [[Lappy 486]], and is quite adept at [[kicking The Cheat]] (hinted in [[Where's The Cheat?]] to weigh about 18 pounds). Also, in, [[Compy Catalog]] Strong Bad easily throws roughly 450 pounds (204.12 kg) of pennies onto his mailbox and supposedly carried 62 pounds of quarters (28kg) in [[unused emails]].  In the email [[lady...ing]], Strong Bad picks up and throws an anvil. It is possible that, like Homestar's "[[Lack of Visible Arms|arms]]", Strong Bad's true strength may be purposely ambiguous. In contrast, Strong Mad holds the upper hand in strength over all of The Brothers Strong.
-
'''STRONG BAD''': Yeah, that's right. So I'm gonna have to charge you double. You know, since you're both here.

== Fun Facts ==
 +
[[Image:Strong Bad Eyes Closed.PNG|thumb|"Well, time to start evolving into mole people. Now shut your eyes really tight and try and heighten your other senses."]]
 +
*Strong Bad and Strong Mad, and their original role as tag team wrestlers, came from the [[Nintendo]] video game [[Wikipedia:Tag Team Wrestling|Tag Team Wrestling]] created by Data East U.S.A. in 1986. In this game, one of the teams is called "The Strong Bads".
 +
*Apparently, Strong Bad is able to survive, stand up, and even talk, with a hole blasted in his head, as shown in [[Marshmallow's Last Stand]] and the email [[lady...ing]].
 +

 +
*He has never completely closed his mouth in the standard animation style, and he supposedly has a green tongue.
 +
*Strong Bad was originally conceived as a masked wrestler because in their childhood, The Brothers Chaps viewed masked wrestlers as the embodiment of evil, making them an ideal choice for an antagonist.

 +

 +

 +
*As evidenced in [[from work]], [[dullard]], [[4 branches]], and [[business trip]], Strong Bad is currently employed.
 +
*At his fastest, Strong Bad types, on average, approximately 240 [[Wikipedia:Typing#Words per Minute|words per minute]] (in a segment in [[death metal]]).

[edit] Biography

Strong Bad is one of the most well-known characters in the Homestar Runner body of work. Originally, he started out as the villain who tried to cheat his way to the top but was always doomed to fail before Homestar Runner. In the manner that minor characters become breakout characters, he's now less of a villain and more of a highly expanded form of comic relief, with his irascible sarcasm and rough voice seeming to make him ever more popular with fans of the website.

He answers emails with a passion, and will make fun of their grammar, punctuation, and spelling—although he's not overly worried about his own. He also hates to be asked about how he manages to type with boxing gloves on. He usually does what he does best when he gets certain emails, one of which falls into this category: DELETED!! He also writes, illustrates, and narrates the series of Teen Girl Squad comics. He has also "written" at least 5 books: Everyone is Different, Strumstar Hammer, That Time of Year, Tubky the Typo-Named Tub, and The Ocelot and the Porridge Maiden. He also seems to enjoy art, teaching lessons on how to draw Trogdor in dragon, and a star in Fan Costumes 2016. These lessons have since been expanded into a semi-weekly feature, Skills of an Artist. In recent years, he has also become known for his Twitter account, @StrongBadActual (and to a lesser extent, his Instagram account).

Strong Bad is the middle child of The Brothers Strong. His is the dominant personality and he loves to push everyone around. He states that both of his brothers are "galactically incapable of friend-have" in the email imaginary, one of the very few true insults he has ever made. He's often abusing Homestar, kicking The Cheat, prank-calling Marzipan, or tormenting Strong Sad (although it's been hinted that they got along when they were younger). Although he seems to dislike or positively loathe most people, he enjoys the company of Bubs, The Cheat (his ever-diligent lackey), Senor Cardgage, Strong Mad (his older brother), and, to a lesser extent, Pom Pom.

"That freakin' duck swallowed both my pixels!"

Strong Bad has red boxing gloves for hands (which always have square window reflections on them, no matter where he is; in Fan Costumes 2016, he claims they are A+ #1 All-Pro Panache), round green eyes, and a red lucha libre mask with a blue diamond and black markings for a head (as suggested in some kinda robot). Although he claims that his mask is his face, he once removed it in the chair. This act caused him a lot of pain but no lasting visible damage. His mask is most likely his face, however, considering that his skull contains the outline of his mask design, and many other clues. He possibly has stretchy skin, as he appeared to stretch the mask from behind Le Restige. His mouth is rectangular, though it often becomes round when he says words with the letter "o". Most of the time, Strong Bad's mouth is in a slight frown, but there are occasions where he smiles. He also wears shiny black pants and red boots. He usually doesn't wear a shirt; according to him, it's better to show off his abs.

Strong Bad rules the land of Strong Badia, a barren field behind the dumpsters that is completely devoid of any sentient life. One of his favorite sayings is (or was for a time) "holy crap", though he hates it when people use the word "crap" when signing emails. He frequently mangles words, as seen in army. ("We're a one man army. Er, a three man one-y. Three-to-one marny?") It has also been implied that he wets the bed, a fact that he attempts to cover up with little success. However, he seems to sleep instead on the couch in his basement, frequently mumbling video game titles, sometimes holding a bag of Potate potato chips. Strong Bad also seems to collect eggs, as seen in morning routine, and he keeps them in the couch.

Strong Bad talks a big line, claiming to be a criminal mastermind, a muscle man, and totally popular with the ladies, though there is little evidence of any of these claims, and no shortage of evidence that they are all untrue. Strong Bad refuses to acknowledge this, however, and continues unaffected with his delusions of grandeur. He is convinced that Marzipan likes, or has a crush on, him when in fact she "really [doesn't] like him at all." Due to his delusional opinions about himself, much of what Strong Bad says is obviously untrue. However, Strong Bad also seems to state that he is uncool, as seen in the email pizzaz.

He loves to listen to Limozeen, Taranchula, and Peter Frampton. He seems to dislike any band that isn't considered metal, such as sloshy, as seen towards the end of concert. He enjoys watching Caleb Rentpayer. He also enjoys doing Jumble puzzles and baking. His love for older technology such as cassette tapes, command prompt computers, old video games (especially those made by Videlectrix) and laserdiscs, and the titles of events such as "Awexome Cross '98", and "TrogdorCon '97" suggest that Strong Bad is "living in the past". Despite his love of the nineties, he seems to despise and destroy anything from any previous decade, like 8-Tracks, TVs that lost their essence in the '70s, and the Nintendo Entertainment System. His unfamiliarity with modern technology seems to have subsided in recent years; he now has social media accounts and a cell phone (albeit made by Compy Inc.).

"Check out all 3 of my glorious D's!"

Strong Bad has sung many self-proclaimed hit singles, his most popular being "Everybody to the Limit", which The Cheat made an animated music video of. He also stars as the protagonist in the blockbuster action series "Dangeresque". He works with Homestar and The Cheat at an unnamed tech company, though despite this fixed income, he seems to have financial troubles, and often attempts money making solutions of questionable legitimacy and burns his bills with his BMW Lighter. His financial troubles might be partly due to his high electric bill, which he claims to be $70,000 in environment. His dream job, as stated in from work, is to be a 2nd 2nd Assistant Space Whale Scrubber. According to The Homestar Runner Enters the Spooky Woods, he is known far and wide for his enthusiasm for Bic ballpoint pens.

Strong Bad is somewhat prejudiced; he has been banned from the UK, and often ridicules non-English speakers on their emails. In Homestar Ruiner, Strong Bad says that he hates the Swedes and later makes jokes at their expense, though he did say he should get married to the sender of magic trick, possibly partly because she's Swedish. He also does not get on well with old people or children, although he claims to have children of his own, including Jeffrey Beffrey Mudgeman, at his second secret home where he goes by the name Vance Mudgeman. He doesn't appear to care much for those children either, or perhaps he does and truly believes that "you got to be firm".

As evidenced in stand-up, Strong Bad once did stand-up comedy as a kid. He apparently wasn't very good, as he tried to make up jokes instead of using natural comedy or rehearsed jokes. However, he doesn't like talking about his act, most likely because his pants fell down in front of the audience, and he ran away embarrassed. Strong Bad also made his own band in Baddest of the Bands which was known as DÖI. In it, Strong Bad does the vocals, The King of Town plays guitar, and Homsar is on the theremin. Strong Bad didn't really pick who was in this band, as after he signed everyone else up, these two were the only characters left to be in the band. Strong Bad also receives mailed letters and items at his mailbox outside his house. On the side of the mailbox is printed "sb_snailmail.exe", which is a parody of "strongbad_email.exe", the computer command he uses to check his email.

[edit] Character Video Transcript

Main article: Strong Bad's Character Video

{Strong Bad is seen standing next to several wooden props, including one of Homestar Runner with a snake wrapped around his head. He is moving some of the props around.}

STRONG BAD: Hold on, I'm not done with the props yet! {turns to camera, speaks commandingly} Greetings, party people in the place to be! I am called Strong Bad! Hand over all your moneys in a paper and/or plastic bag! Ladies, form a line to my left for makeouts! Dudes, form a line to my right for high fives! {drops commanding tone} Like I said, I'm Strong Bad. I've been described as cool, awesome, hot, video games, the hottest, and real real hot. Me and my big brother and our The Cheat pretty much run the show around here, as well as serve as a sort of multi-purpose criminal element. Yeah, we got a lot of—

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ahe-he-hem.

STRONG BAD: What are you doing here?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Well, I was going to get a high five, but, I see that I'm already here. And with a snake on my head!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, that's right. So I'm gonna have to charge you double. You know, since you're both here.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: That sounds reasonable! {pronounces it re-ZON-able}

STRONG BAD: Okay, I only accept gold nuggets. Or maybe Denver Nuggets. ...Whatever you got on ya. Chicken nuggets.

[edit] Strength

Strong Bad by name, but not by nature.
See main article: Strong Bad's Strength

There is highly conflicting evidence regarding Strong Bad's strength. For the most part, it is implied that Strong Bad is actually very weak and out of shape and that "Strong Bad" is merely his name and not an accurate description: In the email lady fan, he is unable to do even a single push-up, and states that he used to be able to do only four. In addition, the paper on Strong Bad's desk in the Homestar Quiz reads "Strong Bad isn't so strong after all. If he tried hard, which of the following could he lift?", and lists the choices as "an ounce", "a weak", "a week", and "pepper". Strong Sad has stated on his blog that Strong Bad's punches do not hurt, compared against Strong Mad's that do. In Homestar Ruiner, Strong Bad is completely incapable of matching Pom Pom's time in the Race to the End of the Race, and can only beat Coach Z's time by heavily cheating. Despite this, though he ultimately resorted to cheating as he had done in the past by having The Cheat whack Homestar Runner with a baseball bat, he was able to keep up with him for the most part. In the email pom pom, Pom Pom easily beats up Strong Bad when he attempts to poke Pom Pom with a pin.

On the other hand, in the email car, Strong Bad demonstrates the ability to punch Homestar hard enough to hit and crack the wall, and in the email secret identity, he literally tosses both Homestar and the King of Town out of his house. He can also easily pick up and carry the supposedly 42-pound Lappy 486, and is quite adept at kicking The Cheat (hinted in Where's The Cheat? to weigh about 18 pounds). Also, in, Compy Catalog Strong Bad easily throws roughly 450 pounds (204.12 kg) of pennies onto his mailbox and supposedly carried 62 pounds of quarters (28kg) in unused emails. In the email lady...ing, Strong Bad picks up and throws an anvil. It is possible that, like Homestar's "arms", Strong Bad's true strength may be purposely ambiguous. In contrast, Strong Mad holds the upper hand in strength over all of The Brothers Strong.
