!!Marshie
[[quoteright:180:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px_marshie.png]]
->''Don'cha like me?''
->Debut: ''"Fluffy Puff Commercial"'' (EarlyBirdCameo), ''"Meet Marshie"'' (official debut)

A floating marshmallow with a face, Marshie is the annoying, overbearing and more-than-a-little disturbing mascot of Fluffy Puff Marshmallows. Marshie is desperate to get kids to like him, but his overbearing attitude, bizarre sense of advertising aesthetic and sheer innate creepiness make him universally despised. In particular, the normally good-natured Homestar hates Marshie because he took his job as the Fluffy Puff spokesman.
----
* AccidentalNightmareFuel: His main schtick. Marshie really, ''really'' wants you to like him, but his commercials are... off-putting, to say the least. Marshie commercials include creepily-spoken lines, jarring non-sequiturs, unsettling close-ups, disturbing imagery and in one instance a behind-the-scenes meltdown.
-->'''Marshie''': (Handheld footage in a changing room) WHAT MORE DO THEY WAAANT!?
* AdorableAbomination: His "[[http://www.hrwiki.org/w/images/thumb/2/28/Gel-Arshie.png/180px-Gel-Arshie.png Gel-arshie]]" persona, who serves as the mascot for "Red Flavored Fluffy Puff Translucent Dessert Related Substance" (red gelatin). As cute as he may be, he's even more terrifying than Marshie, with a creepy distorted voice and a ''visible brain'' inside his head.
-->'''Gel-arshie''': ''I'M AN ABOMINATION!'' And I'm comin' to your house after school!
* ChildHater: Hates his younger counterpart Nibbles, who, despite his similarities to a CousinOliver, is actually a very tolerable mascot in comparison to Marshie. Also implied in an outtake;
-->'''Marshie''': Those little punks next door won't know what hit 'em, when you fill 'em... full of lead...
* MyBelovedSmother: Apparently, he can't do enough for his mother, as seen in "Cliffhanger".
* TheScrappy: InUniverse example. Homestar absolutely ''despises'' him, and for good reason - even if he ''wasn't'' in-universe NightmareFuel, he still took Homestar's job as Fluffy Puff Marshmallow ad spokesman.
-->'''Homestar''': I hate that freakin' marshmallow...
* StepfordSmiler: He's ''constantly'' smiling, but it's very clear that he's mentally disturbed on the inside.



!!The Goblin
->Debut: ''"[[Recap/HomestarRunnerHomestarloweenParty Homestarloween Party]]"''

An armless green critter who turns up most Halloweens, the Goblin looks around, does a dance, and disappears for another year. The rest of the characters don't seem to like him that much--until [[spoiler:he saves them from a Carnivorous Undead Sheep]] in "[[http://www.homestarrunner.com/ween08.html Most in the Graveyard]]".

* MasochistsMeal:
** Some of the things the King of Town has eaten are downright hazardous to normal people, such as deodorant products and automotive fluids.
** [[invoked]] In the sbemail ''fan club'', an easter egg implies that he ate the Poopsmith's [[NauseaFuel crap pile]].
--->'''Strong Bad:''' "I can't believe I ate that entire pile of whatsit!" said the King of Town.
--->'''King of Town:''' I wish that ''were'' fiction.
*** CallBack: In "I Killed Pom Pom", it's implied King of Town did it ''again''. This time, he managed to pin it on Homestar.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: ''STRONG MAD.'' And when he's acting in the Dangeresque movies, he's called "Killingyouguy," and as such, is the page image for this trope.

* {{Curse}}: His character video curses those who watch it... to have their lips become realistic human lips, their voice becoming strange, and to put their hands on their hips [[note]] which doesn't visibly affect Homestar because of his invisible arms [[/note]] whenever they say "tertiary". The curse is so specific it takes a "7 or 8 years later" FlashForward before anybody notices the effects.

* ButtMonkey: Nowhere near the levels of Strong Sad and The King Of Town, but Strong Bad's attempts at various schemes tends to end in embarrassment and pain.

* BadassAdorable / BewareTheNiceOnes: He's been voted 'most likely to beat everyone in an all-out death match' ever since he pummeled Strong Bad for trying to pop him with a pin. He's also a martial arts master and has an itchy trigger finger when it comes to firearms, so watch out.
