Several characters star alongside Strong Badman in The Total Adventures of Strong Badman.

Character Description Appearances
Strong Badman is the main character of The Total Adventures of Strong Badman. (See main article: Strong Badman)
Stiny, also known as Li'l Stiny and L'il Stiny, is Strong Badman's temporary, hypothetical sidekick, invented by Strong Bad in order to insult yet another email-writing fan. He ceases to exist after The Cheat gets upset about the notion of being replaced as Strong Bad's sidekick (see below). But for argument's sake, Stiny lives with Strong Badman in Strong Badman's Apartment, assisting Strong Badman with his various evil schemes. Stiny is frequently yelled at by his boss to get him a danish or asked who spilled coffee all over Strong Badman's plans for his death ray. Stiny presumably debuts in the first issue of The Total Adventures of Strong Badman but is never actually seen, only yelled at by Strong Badman.

Stiny first appears as the sender of the Strong Bad Email superhero name, asking Strong Bad why his name doesn't end in "man", like other superheroes (examples given are Superman and Spiderman). Strong Bad proceeded to comment that Stiny is not in a very good position to be criticizing people's names, as Strong Bad believed that Stiny sounded like some supervillain's little sidekick that he's always ordering around. After mocking him, Strong Bad agreed to change his name to Strong Badman if Stiny agreed to become his sidekick, changes his name to Li'l Stiny, and wears "a little mask and a little cape". The Cheat (dressed in a little mask and a little cape) complains that Strong Bad is trying to replace him and takes offense at Strong Bad's mocking reference to a little mask and a little cape.

Deutschman is a character in The Total Adventures of Strong Badman. He is based on Harry Earlenmacherg from the German city of Düsseldorf, the sender of the Strong Bad Email haircut, making him the second character based on a Strong Bad Email sender in the Strong Badman universe (the first being Stiny). The nickname "Deutschman" is given by Strong Bad, and clicking on the word Deutschman in the email brings up an image of The Total Adventures of Strong Badman issue #23, featuring Deutschman. By the end of the email the sender is also called Düsseldörke and Ger-man.

His superpowers, if any, are unknown, though he seems to wield a chain of bratwurst as a weapon. He has blond hair, a mustache and, later, a beard. Although elsewhere in the Homestar Runner body of work the word "deutsch" (the German word for "German") is mistaken for the word "Dutch", it seems to be correct in the case of Deutschman, as he wears lederhosen and a pickelhaube, both of which are German attire. The pickelhaube is also seen on The Kaiser in The Ballad of The Sneak and The King of Town in Ever and More!. He also wears green lederhosen, green tights, green gloves, and green boots. Although he appears to be a villain (or hero rather, given that Strong Badman is actually the villain) during his Total Adventures of Strong Badman debut, in issue #45, it appears both he and Strong Badman teamed up to fight The Deutsch Master, a battle they lost. It is unclear what his relation to the Deutsch Master is, if any.

Deutschman appears once more in the 150th email, alternate universe, in which he has a cameo appearance. As Strong Bad jumps down from the top to bottom panel in the Strong Badman comic, he passes a panel of Deutschman holding a chain of sausage and saying "KINDER UBERRASCHUNG!!", the German name for "Kinder Surprise" (though Uberraschung should be spelled Überraschung).

The Deutsch Master is a villain within the comic book series The Total Adventures of Strong Badman. His first mention is in the Strong Bad Email portrait, where Strong Bad decides that his greatness is worthy of portraiture by a Deutsch Master (a play on "Dutch Master"). Strong Bad mentions that Deutsch Masters make the kind of art that is always getting stolen or vandalized by art bandits, such as The Cheat. He creates a portrait of Strong Bad dressed in what looks like a beret, brown hair, and either a toga or other kind of white robe and holding Lord Quackingstick in his left boxing glove. According to a small white card located beside the painting, the portrait is titled Strongio da Baddio, was apparently created by someone named "DaVantres" (whom is likely either one of the "Deutsch Masters" or even The Deutsch Master himself), and was created circa 1658. The portrait is contained in a detailed golden frame. Clicking on the white card will cause Strong Badman Issue #45 to pop up, depicting The Deutsch Master as a dark, robed figure armed with a paintbrush with blue paint on it and red eyes. He stands over the unconscious bodies of Deutschman and Strong Badman, and he says in a word bubble that "Strong Badman and Deutschman are both FINISHED!!!"
Grossman is a fat, smelly, untidy, and overall gross character who appears in The Total Adventures of Strong Badman issue #56. Grossman was a nickname given to the sender of the Strong Bad Email narrator, whose real name is Grant Gossman, by Strong Bad. The nickname was given for no particular reason other than that "Gossman" sounds like "Grossman" (or possibly that it's a combination of Grant and Gossman). He has somewhat dark blonde hair on his head and 37 black hairs across his shoulders. He wears a somewhat green wifebeater shirt, brown pants, a belt, and at least one green glove with which he holds a peeled banana. Along his body he has numerous visible stains of varying colors, including lime green, dark green, yellow, orange, and blue, as well as two sweat stains, one under his right armpit and one on the front of his torso. He has visible green gas rising up from him. He may be Strong Badman's new roommate.
Damp Towel Man is a superhero played by Coach Z. His job is to collect damp towels from across the galaxy. His "mild-mannered alter ego" is named Dan Towelman. When Coach Z turns into Damp Towel Man, he dons a costume consisting of a mask and a cape, which is actually a towel. He also sports a yellow "Z" across his chest. In the toon DNA Evidence, he finds a green-stained damp towel on Strong Bad's desk, which he takes to work the next day. When he returns to his janitor cart, he finds it has gone missing. He suspects the culprit was his nemesis, Dry Ragamuffin. His catchphrase is "Moist Molecules!"
Dry Ragamuffin is Damp Towel Man's nemesis, and appears to be the superhero version of Bubs. Damp Towel Man suspects that Dry Ragamuffin stole his green-stained damp towel from his janitor cart at The Office. His mild-mannered alter-ego is Dreyfus Ragámoofin.
Moth Mouth is based on John, from Strong Bad's video in hygiene and appeared in issue 81. The cover is similar to the cover of Uncanny X-Men #28. His name refers to the email's lines, "John's mouth is an ecological trainwreck and has a nest of rare South American moths living inside it," and "None of the hot college hotties'll show up if you're hanging around, Mothmouth."
Hit-Enter-Too-Soon Man was the nickname Strong Bad created for "J.Hazard", who emailed him in winter pool. When the email listed "IN" as the person's home state, Strong Bad mistook it for an unfinished sentence. Hit-Enter-Too-Soon Man doesn't appear to wear a traditional superhero costume; he merely sports a pair of glasses and a plain blue shirt.
Scantron originated in Teen Girl Squad Issue 14 as armor donned by So and So that she wore to complete tests.
A Strong Badman version of The Cheat is seen in Comic Book Movie as one of Strong Badman's sidekicks. He is chosen to be the example of a "boneless, constantly wiggling CG monstrosity".
