Talk:The Brothers Strong

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Ding! The Brothers Strong is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


[edit] Organized Crime

This shouldn't really count as an organization. Consider the other two entrants in the category: The On Point Kings and the Homestarmy. One was formed by invitation (and exclusion), the other by recruitment; both had mission statements of sorts (not taking any guff, and painting the fence and bearding the tire). The Brothers Strong are related only by blood (and, in the case of The Cheat and, allegedly, Strong Sad, adoption) and have no communal raison d'ĂȘtre. And aside from their Christmas card, which was an Easter egg, they've never self-identified as The Brothers Strong; it had previously been an externally applied moniker playing on TBC.
Conclusion: Kick it outa da category.
(And if you want some Organizations, what about Cheat Commandos and Blue Laser?) —AbdiViklas 16:04, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

But do you have a better category for it? --DorianGray
Does it need a category per se? (I'd question its need to exist, but that's a separate argument.) —AbdiViklas 16:30, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Everything has a category. See Special:Uncategorizedpages, just to show what kinds of pages don't have one. --DorianGray
Grr! I didn't need to be reminded of that! Well, then... I guess Characters would be the best fit. —AbdiViklas 16:44, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, Characters might fit... Anyone else? --DorianGray
Well, The Homestarmy got its own category, why not this page? Just not named "The Brothers Strong". Something other pages may possibly fit into. Anyone else? Bluebry 14:52, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
I'm having trouble imagining what that would be. If it were "The Brothers Strong," it could only have four pages in it (five if this one is included instead of replaced). If it were... something else... what would it be? —AbdiViklas 20:12, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
Family relationships? (We would need more) Bluebry 20:38, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] The Cheat?

How is The Cheat a Brother Strong? --Sam Goldfish 18:21, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

I really don't know. I still kinda like him there, you know? It just feels right. Bluebry 19:49, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
The Cheat's more of a collaborator than a member, if you ask me. --DorianGray
He's related to Strong Bad by Dadbysatedness. For real, it feels right probably because he spends most of his time in the same house (though he does have his own place). He's kind of a cross between a Brother-Strong-by-adoption and a family pet. —AbdiViklas 20:14, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree with Abdiviklas. Bluebry 20:37, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
But in the Decemberween Email Menu, their picture is captioned "The Brothers Strong AND The Cheat", instead of just "The Brothers Strong". --Sam Goldfish 19:57, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Living in the same home

Strong Bad, Strong Sad, and Strong Mad live in the same house. I think they lived with their parents all their lives. Their parents are probably dead now, and that's why we don't see them. I can guess why the Brothers Strong never got to live on their own. (I'm 22, and I still live with my parents.) Strong Mad is just too dumb to live on his own, and Strong Sad puts everyone down. Strong Bad obviously can't afford to live on his own. I don't know if he even has a "real" job. He mostly checks email every Monday or Tuesday. 2Fast2Furious 22:31, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad right handed?

From my observations, Strong Bad is right handed. As seen in dragon, i love you, the bird, and rough copy. Stribbs 16:53, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I had no idea of that page. Stribbs 17:05, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Names

If "Bad Strong", "Mad Strong" and "Sad Strong" really are their correct names, why does the HRWiki use the other names anyway? 02:23, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

It's not us; it's just the way it is. Their names really aren't Bad Strong, Mad Strong, and Sad Strong (they are really Strong Bad, Mad, & Sad), but they are still referred to as the Brothers Strong in Homestar Runner cartoons. We didn't make it up. Weird though, huh? —BazookaJoe 02:27, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

In some places, it is the surname that comes first. Perhaps this is true here. (Although, "Free Country USA" brings the mind to America and Americans definatly have surnames last so...)MJN SEIFER 13:28, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Brothers Strong Skin Conditions?

Is this noteworthy of being added that all of the Brothers Strong seem to share a skin condition involving the sun?

  • Strong Bad: Tans in Farmer's tan style, seen in lures & jigs and keep cool. (However, he doesn't burn this way, as seen in suntan)
  • Strong Mad: This one is debatable, but Strong Mad seemingly can burn in messages, as seen in underlings.
  • Strong Sad: Burns in bikini top style, as seen in Somber Vacation.
