[edit] Inclusion criteria

It seems to me that one crossover game which included the characters as a decision of the game's producers and not TBC and one disputed reference don't make enough material to include on this page. Further, even if it were enough, this ought to be formatted like the other running gag pages, rather than like it's its own entity within the H*R universe. — Defendarrrr1031Talk 12:51, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

I think this (along with Tycho and Max) is a special case, since the characters in Poker Night at the Inventory actually communicate with Strong Bad in the game. Strong Bad has lines directly referring to The Heavy (and to Tycho, and to Max), and is voiced by Matt Chapman when doing so. It's not like the background characters or images that Telltale added in, Matt Chapman knew that Strong Bad was going to be communicating with these characters when he agreed to having Strong Bad in the game. So, that fact alone should make the Poker Night references count. And I think since these are special cases, the character interaction sections should be kept too. Since they were in fact characters that directly interacted with Strong Bad. Jennifer 18:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
The question isn't whether the poker night reference is valid (though the ponk one is disputed), but the fact that it doesn't meet the minimum requirement for its own page. — Defendarrrr1031Talk 01:07, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
I think the advertisements for Poker Night should count for that (The SBCG4AP advertisments have counted in articles), especially the Poker Night at the Inventory Trailer, since it has different animation and interactions between the characters (including Strong Bad and The Heavy) not seen in the full game. That would put it up to the minimum three references (four if you include the Teaser). Jennifer 10:23, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
  1. The other articles that you mention INCLUDE references from trailers, but if the trailer is just excerpts from the game, they don't count as more than one for the requirement for pages. The main point here is that telltale made a crossover game which includes both characters. The trailers are simply previews for that game, and would not be making the references on their own if not for the fact that that's how the actual game is, so that only counts as one reference.
  2. TBC are not the ones making the reference. This is similar to the back to the future debate, where you also seem to think it should be included despite not being TBC's work. I disagree with you there and I disagree even more here.

The point I was trying to make was Strong Bad (voiced by Matt Chapman) says "Nothing intimidates your opponents like a heavy dose of think hard!" This was never said in the game, as far as I've ever heard. No one else has heard it either, apparently, as it's not in the Strong Bad's Responses in Poker Night at the Inventory page. It seems like this is a trailer-exclusive line. Jennifer 05:42, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Delete. This is a crossover too far. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 20:24, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
