"Go away! I'm doing something!"

Stinkoman and 1-Up are the 20X6 equivalents of Strong Bad and Homestar Runner, respectively. The relationship of Stinkoman and 1-Up mirrors the relationship of Strong Bad and Homestar Runner: 1-Up idolizes Stinkoman and wants his attention, while Stinkoman finds 1-Up to be annoying most of the time, although occasionally he shows a soft spot for 1-Up and the two have moments of camaraderie.


[edit] Stinkoman dismissing 1-Up

  • Email japanese cartoon — Stinkoman says that 1-Up can't be "the guy" because he's just a kid. He then laughs when 1-Up is crushed by Pan Pan.

  • Stinkoman 20X6
    • In Level 2's opening cutscene, Stinkoman ignores 1-Up, who is concerned for the kidnapped Pan Pan.
    • In Level 4's opening cutscene, Stinkoman is more concerned about his power crunch being damaged on the Lava Zone than 1-Up's safety.
    • In Level 5's opening cutscene, he refuses to help 1-Up any more, leaving 1-Up to play the level on his own.
  • Twenty THANXty Six — When Stinkoman is building a tractor, he tells 1-Up to go away, and mockingly calls 1-Up a "talking-to-me-extraordinaire" after 1-up points out that "giving thanks" doesn't involve farm equipment.
