Real Ultimate Power

Parodies of Real Ultimate Power are everywhere. A fan made one featuring TROGDOR.

Red vs Blue

  • A Strong Bad and a Homestar sticker is also seen during the Red vs. Blue segment in the Halo 2 Limited Collectors Edition DVD, on the window of a door.


RiffTrax

  • In the RiffTrax for the movie Eragon, upon seeing a cottage on fire, Kevin Murphy quips "Another burninated victim of TROGDOR!" (This repays the time Murphy's character Tom Servo was referenced in A Jorb Well Done.)
  • And in the Batman and Robin Rifftrax, when they are placing the mask on Bane's face, Bill Corbett states "Next they're going to put boxing gloves on him and force him to read emails," in an obvious reference to the ever popular sbemail feature. It should be noted that particular Rifftrax was written by the fans.

RinkWorks Graffiti

Homestar is referenced twice on the RinkWorks graffiti pages.

  • The text "Baleted" can be seen here.
  • An image of Strong Bad has been crudely pasted in to all the other crazy stuff going on here.

Something Awful

Notice The following website is outside of www.hrwiki.org and contains crude or vulgar language and/or content. Personal discretion is advised.

Strong Bad, Homestar, Strong Mad, The Cheat and Marzipan appear as grotesque caricatures in Tub Bites vol. 2.. The computer used in the toon appears to be a parody of the Compy 386. The first email is "Recycle Binned!". Homestar returns Strong Bad's "80's reference" (a Tag Team Wrestling cartridge), as well as some of his "crappy catchphrases" (the one used as an example is "holy crap!"). Also, this is reprised with an obvious parody of a "How do you type with boxing gloves on?"-style Strong Bad e-mail in Karnov Bites.

  • The Easter egg in Tub Bites 2 is a parody of Marzipan's Answering Machine, featuring calls from parodies of Strong Bad, the King of Town, Homsar, Coach Z and Strong Sad.

The update of March 1, 2007, Steve's Movie Review Blog, contains reference to the Strong Bad Emails. The article is written as if the writer is unfamiliar with internet trends; he writes that he just discovered the site, thinks the cartoon's title is "The Strong Bads", and thinks its web address is www.strongbad.com.

Homestar appears in Funny Housemates 2 and Funny Housemates 999. He looks like Homestar, but acts more like Homsar.

Q. - How do you type with boxing gloves on?
A. - I'm sorry, this is "Ask South Park" not "Ask StrongBad (sic)."

the show with zefrank

On the September 7, 2006 episode of the show, zefrank included a link to duck pond as a "silly thing".

Moreover, on the May 1, 2006 episode, the game can be seen on zefrank's monitor in the background.

Stick Shorts

On this site, episode 11 includes a short that is about a guy who sees Homestar, and kicks him, which results in Homestar falling on the guy.

He was then pictured lower on the page in the "Immediate Aftermath" section, then moved to the "Related Information" section, then finally dropped altogether. The page as it exists now can be found here, and the edit history for the page here. Strong Bad was also named Minister of Deleting email, and is found directly under Homestar's listing.
