The reason you're here



Strong Bad is one of the most well-known characters on He started out as the villain who always tried to cheat his way to the top but was always doomed to fail before Homestar Runner. Now he's less of a villain and more of a highly expanded form of comic relief. He answers e-mails with a passion, usually every Monday or Tuesday. He will make fun of your grammar, punctuation, and spelling, but doesn't seem to be worried about his own. 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 abusing Homestar, kicking The Cheat, prank-calling Marzipan, or tormenting Strong Sad (although he and Strong Sad did seem to get along when they were younger). He has boxing gloves for hands (that always have square window reflections on them, no matter where he is), a lucha libre mask for a head, and it is confirmed that the mask IS actually his head in this interview. His favorite saying is (or was for a time) "holy crap." He hates to be 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!!! The blue diamond on his face also gives him the power to mentally open Cold Ones and even pop Homestar's hat off his head. Strong Bad owns his own country: Strongbadia, a barren field behind the dumpster that is completely devoid of any sentient life.

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, but no shortage of evidence that they are all untrue. He has delusions of grandeur about how much Marzipan likes him when she really doesn't like him at all. He seems to have a grudge against birds, as shown in issues of Teen Girl Squad. He also loves to listen to Peter Frampton, Limozeen and Taranchula. His favorite show is Caleb Rentpayer.

Strong Bad has sung many hit singles, his most popular being "Everybody to the Limit". He also stars as the protagonist in the blockbuster action series "Dangeresque". He works with Homestar at an unnamed tech company, though despite this fixed income, he seems to have financial troubles as he often attempts money making solutions of questionable legitimacy and burns his bills with his BMW lighter. Strong Bad is somewhat prejudiced; he has been banned from the UK, and often ridicules Eastern Europeans on their e-mails. He also hates children and old people.

STRONG BAD: What are you doing here?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Well, I was gonna get a high five, but, I see 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.

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