The pinnacle of video games.

The FunMachine is Strong Bad's video game console of choice. Some of the games that Videlectrix produces are playable on the FunMachine and a newer-generation system known as the Super FunMachine (obviously, a parody of the NES and updated Super NES). The front page of the Limozeen's Hot Babelien Odyssey in-game manual states that the FunMachine is actually made by Videlectrix.

Interestingly, the Funmachine itself resembles an old Atari 2600 console. On the website, the controller also resembles an Atari joypad. In Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People, its controller more resembles that of an NES console.

In Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, a FunMachine can be found in Strong Bad's room and can be used to play a certain game that differs by each episode, including Snake Boxer 5, Math Kickers, Limozeen's Hot Babelien Odyssey, Space Circus Catastrophe, and Gel-Arshie's Pro Fruitboarder. In Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective, the FunMachine is located in the Computer Room instead.

In Baddest of the Bands, the gameplay centers around the FunMachine. After it is broken, Strong Bad has to hold a Battle Royale of the Bands to get funds for it. After paying Bubs his exorbitant fee, Strong Sad points out that the FunMachine was simply broken because of an old piece of nacho cheese spray lodged in the console.
