* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In "Homestar Ruiner" the metal detector and shovel are separate items, forcing you to use both to dig up buried objects. Later episodes cut out the middleman and combined the two into a single item.

* ''Homestar Ruiner''-- In which Strong Bad sets out to "beat the snot out of Homestar", but instead ends up impersonating him at the Free Country USA Tri-Annual Race to the End of the Race, humiliating him in the process... which wouldn't be a problem, except that Homestar takes refuge in Strong Bad's house and refuses to leave unless Strong Bad can fix Homestar's shattered reputation.
* ''Strong Badia the Free''-- In which Strong Bad rebels against the King of Town's new e-mail tax, and tries to rally his neighbors (who have all set up their own countries) to overthrow the Of Town's "fat-thority".
* ''Baddest of the Bands''-- In which Strong Bad organizes (and then attempts to win) a Battle Royale of the Bands in order to fund repairs for his beloved Videlectrix Funmachine.
* ''Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective''-- In which Strong Bad finally completes his latest "cine-magic masterpiece", where a routine mission to save the rainforest traps Dangeresque and Renaldo in a web of treachery, lies, heartbreak, and bad action movie cliches. This is a unique installment in that you play in-character as Dangeresque, trying to solve your way through the movie's plot.
* ''8-Bit Is Enough''-- In which Strong Bad's malfunctioning Trogdor cabinet leads to Free Country USA merging with the world of video games, forcing Strong Bad to team up with his favorite video game characters and take out a rampaging Trogdor.

Strong Bad also appears in VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory, using the model from this game.

[[spoiler:However, this appears to be vague at best- there's no interacting between the two, and the only idea that they might be working together is their actions in the first half of the episode. The true Big Bad Buumvirate is Uzi Bazooka and Craig.]]

** In "Baddest of the Bands," Strong Bad frames Coach Z for several crimes in order to convince Bubs he's still "hardcore" so the two will reform the Two-O Duo for the Battle of the Bands.

** In "Baddest of the Bands," Strong Bad frames Coach Z for several crimes in order to convince Bubs he's still "hardcore" so the two will reform the Two-O Duo for the Battle of the Bands. Later, he frames Limozeen for doing all the things Marzipan is getting preachy over, resulting in her writing a song dedicated to trashing them, which hurts her band's position in the contest since ''Limozeen are the judges''.

* GeniusBonus: The Wii Channel animations for each episode show Strong Bad running the files for each game on his Lappy, with the extension ".wad". This is the file type for WiiWare games, comparable to the .exe's Strong Bad is usually running on his computer.



** Pay close attention to the Wii Channel animation. The filename Strong Bad types into the Lappy ends in ".wad"... the file extension used to ''pirate'' Wii channels. Considering that [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil this is Nintendo we're talking about]], this was a pretty ballsy reference to make. Doubles as a GeniusBonus.

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: The second fight between Homestar and Coach Z in Strong Badia the Free's Maps & Minions game consists solely of the latter saying "Fair enough. I'll go," and walking away.

* GuideDangIt: [=SBCG4AP=] has its moments, especially when it comes to finding collectibles and other 100% completion achievements. The worst one is probably one of the Expressions of Affection in "Baddest of the Bands": To get it, you have to have hints turned up to maximum, sabotage two specific bands in the Battle Royale of the Bands, pick up an item used to sabotage the ''third'' band ''without'' using it, and then wander around a particular spot for a while until the hint drops. How the game makers expected anybody to figure this one out on their own is a real mystery.
** It doesn't help some of the Expressions are LostForever if you don't do them before certain story beats.

* LostForever: Getting collectibles and other 100% completion achievements in [=SBCG4AP=] can be difficult, because many of them can only be achieved in a small window of opportunity. Thankfully, the game averts {{Unwinnable}}, as anything needed to complete the game will always remain accessible to you.
