!!Marshie
->''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!?
* ChildHater: Implied in an outtake;
-->'''Marshie''': Those little punks next door won't know what hit 'em, when you fill 'em... full of lead...
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Occasionally dives into this.

** It's possible Strong Bad dropping the heavy lourde on him might have turned him into a WordSalad loon, since he talked with normal syntax in his first appearance.

The King of Town's most prominent (and disgusting) servant, the Poopsmith is an odd fellow who, as the name suggests, shovels whatsit for a living. Also, for some reason he has taken a vow of silence. According to Homestar, "The Poopsmith is a good guy. He's just got a crappy job."

* AuthorityInNameOnly: The only people he's the king of are his loyal servants. Everyone else just considers him a lame old man. He even used to be the TropeNamer.

* BigBrotherBully: While his ''evil'' side has mostly been {{flanderized}} away, even his less physically harmful treatment of Strong Sad is well into psychological abuse territory.

* InsultBackfire: His prank calls on Marzipan are so bad, that in "Marzipan's Answering Machine version 4.0", Marzipan actually suggests Strong Bad tell her a particular prank call because it's her favorite.

* SmokingIsCool: Zig-Zagged. The office he works in when he's being a reporter in almost always has a lit cigarette in an ashtray next to him, especially when he's playing the hardboiled P.I. Dangeresque in his homemade ''Dangeresque'' films. However, he's rarely seen actually holding it, and usually uses it just to fill the air with smoke. He actually DID smoke a cigar [[http://www.hrwiki.org/w/images/d/d7/Thank_You_2.PNG once]], but there's no way of seeing the short toon anymore.[[note]]To see it, you had to buy something from the store between 5 AM and 11:59 PM, but even then there was only a 1/3 chance that that was the one you would see. And on top of that, they discontinued the store messages in 2008.[[/note]] Coach Z once found him "smoking," but Strong Bad denies being a smoker, and admits it's just a white crayon he lit on fire so he can use it to get a smoke break after he used all his other breaks that day, including maternity.

Strong Bad's depressed, sarcastic punching bag younger brother. Years of being picked on by his brothers have given him an outlook on life that's as grim and gray as he is. Strong Sad is fairly smart, though, and occasionally gets one over on Strong Bad.

* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Has a habit of pronouncing words as if they had accented letters when they don't.
* TheBore: He's rather resigned to the fact that nobody except Marzipan and Homsar are interested in his art, poetry, and music, and it's hard to tell with Homsar.
* ButtMonkey: He suffers more abuse than everyone else on the site, usually from Strong Bad.

* ButtMonkey: He suffers more abuse than everyone else on the site, usually from Strong Bad. It's often glossed over, but he suffers through some stuff that would probably be fatal in real life, like being boarded up in a full bathtub on a yearly basis.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Zig-zagged. Sometimes The Cheat can accomplish tasks remarkably well, such as stealing a cantaloupe from Marzipan's garden in a matter of seconds. Other times he causes things to fall apart, such as using fireworks instead of explosives on a door, causing him and Strong Bad to get caught.

And he [[http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/strong_badathlon#Commentary_Transcript apparently]] had a crush on "a hot blonde" at one point.
