The Battle of Strong Badia was a conflict between the Homestarmy and Strong Badia, depicted in the Strong Bad Email "army".

Why it Happened

Prelude to invasion

Colonel Homestar Runner was driven to embark upon a campaign to invade and capture Strong Badia because he was tired of Strong Bad stealing the show (or as Homestar himself put it, because he was "sick and tired of playing second fiddle to a two-bit Wrestleman and his yellow dog"). To aid his cause, he recruited Homsar, Strong Sad, the Painting of a Guy with a Big Knife and Third-Style Private Frank Bennedetto, and proceeded to march upon the stronghold of the Brothers Strong.

Summary of Events

The lone casualty of the Battle of Strong Badia.

It is a bitter irony that Homestar's urge to win was what defeated him. Attempting to bolster his forces, Colonel Homestar tried to recruit Strong Bad, giving him warning of the impending invasion. Were it not for this error, Strong Bad may never have found out about the planned attack until it was too late, and Strong Badia might have fallen. As it happened, Homestar's mistake enabled Strong Bad to send his commando Firebert to spy upon the Homestarmy's planning meeting, enabling him and Strong Mad to be prepared for the invasion.

The battle lasted about ten seconds before it was canceled by Colonel Homestar so that Strong Bad and Strong Mad could play badminton. Homsar, unfortunately, deserted approximately three seconds into it, or simply didn't notice that they had reached their destination as his "helmet" was covering his eyes. The Homestarmy was forced to retreat (Colonel Homestar commented they were "in over [their] heads"); after Strong Sad exhorted the troops to "hold the line", Private Bennedetto was nearly slain by a kick from Strong Bad's foot when he remained in enemy territory. The Brothers Strong emerged victorious and went on to wonder how to play badminton.

Since this defeat, the Homestarmy has only been seen in action twice since then, making sure that no one did any work on Labor Day, and attemting to recruit troops in more armies. The limited accounts of the Labor Day campaign indicate they had some success in this endeavor, although they appeared to have scared away their only taker at their most recent activity.
