The Sharpiest of Technology

The Permanent Marker is Strong Bad's ultimate utility tool. It first appears in the Strong Bad Email suntan, where it is advertised as the "Strong Bad Ab-Abber 2000". In haircut, it is used as a "Light Pen" to draw many different possible eyebrow styles on a "scanned" image of Strong Mad. In car, Strong Bad uses it to trick out his boxing glove, and then imprint Homestar Runner's forehead with "DELETED" in Gothic text. In couch patch, the marker appears in Strong Sad's flashback when he recalled Lil' Strong Bad writing "Carla Lewis is HOTT!" on The Couch. In Senorial Day, Senor Cardgage uses it to sign an autograph for Strong Bad on a football. Strong Bad then uses a white-out version of it in long pants to cover up parts of the email's text, which he thought was too long. In from work, Bubs has what appears to be a permanent marker in his tool belt, but it is not known if it is the same brand of marker. In an Easter egg for more armies, The Cheat resignedly uses a red permanent marker to change the sign "Firebert" to "Trogdor".

A cousin to the permanent marker, perhaps, is the X-Pensive White pen.

It has been noted that the "Light Pen" Strong Bad uses is left-handed. Many right-handed people don't realize this, but almost all pens and pencils are manufactured for right-handed use in that the text printed on them appears right-side-up when used with the right hand, but upside-down when used by the left hand. (This does not affect the way pencils or pens are used; only the orientation of the text printed on them differs.)

The marker bears an uncanny resemblance (in form, if not function) to the ubiquitous Sharpie-brand permanent marker.
