    Strong Bad's Computers 

Strong Bad's Computers

Debut: "Email some kinda robot" (Tandy 400), "Email invisibility" (Compy 386), "Email animal" (Lappy 486), "Compy Catalog" (Compé), "Email sbemail206" (Lappier)

All of Strong Bad's ancient computers seems to have their own minds, and they all seem to hold grudges. Although the deaths of the Lappy and Tandy didn't bother him much, the Compy being shot affected him greatly. He started off with the green-screened Tandy 400, until it blew up, then moved to the Compy 386, which was shot by Bubs after getting infected by over 400,000 computer viruses, and then the Lappy 486, which Strong Bad blew up. He then switched to the Compé, but he only answered 3 emails on it before he let it collect so much dust that it was compressed into the Lappier, which he now uses.


  • Anachronism Stew: With the exception of the Compé, Strong Bad uses old-style command prompt computers.
  • Back for the Dead: In SBEmail retirement, the first and second computers demanded to have one more email checked on each of them. Strong Bad obliged, but in such a way that permanently destroyed both of them.
  • Back from the Dead: The first and second computers come back for the SBEmail retirement.
  • Disco Dan: Strong Bad's first state of the art computer had two contrast knobs! His first laptop had five whole minutes of battery life and weighed an extremely portable forty-two pounds! Strong Bad viewed them as the epitome of computing. He's been rather disdainful of The Cheat, who uses "new computers."
  • Finger in the Mail: The older computers send Lappie's "toe" (a key from her keyboard) to Strong Bad with a ransom note.
  • Jackass Genie: The Tandy sometimes ignores Strong Bad's orders fully. Other times, it takes advantage of his Exact Words (though during the instance described below, it was malfunctioning, having exploded a few emails beforehand).
    Strong Bad: "Deleted!."
    Tandy: "Saved forever."
    Strong Bad: (sarcastically) Oh, that's great. Great, thank you. Yeah, go ahead and save that one, why don't you, yeah. So I can treasure it for years and years, and show it to my kids.
  • The Nth Doctor: The Lappier is technically the Compé, in exactly the same way a diamond is just coal. (i.e. One was crushed into the other.)
  • Reality Warper: When the Compy is infected with so many viruses that their glitching overflows and infects reality.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: When the Tandy deleted an email from the only girl that ever showed interest in Strong Bad, his opinion of the Tandy was soured forever.
  • Unexplained Recovery: The Compy inexplicably appears as Strong Bad's computer in the 2014 April Fool's cartoon, even though in its last appearance it was eaten by Strong Mad.
  • The Unfavorite: The Tandy seems to be Strong Bad's least favorite of his computers; he rarely has anything positive to say about it, two of his personal favorite emails are the ones where it exploded and the one where he got rid of it, and it's the only one he simply throws away without any real sendoff. This is probably because it was the only one to actively break down and start showing major bugs, while his other computers mostly performed to the level of their (incredibly low) standards until outside interference kicked in. Then again, even when it exploded, his only reaction was to grumpily note "I liked that computer."
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Strong Bad uses the Compé for a grand total of 3 emails, and then after the hiatus ended it was covered in so much dust it was compressed into the Lappier. This is, of course, lampshaded by Strong Bad:
    Ah, Compé, we hardly knew yé.

    The Papers 

The Papers

Debut: "Email some kinda robot" (The Paper), "Email the paper" (New Paper), "Email independent" (Compé-per), "sbemail206" (Currently unnamed "CG" paper)

Two perspective-altering printers and a pop-up balloon. They usually appear at the end of an email to prompt an email to Strong Bad.


  • Back from the Dead: The original paper surprisingly returns from the dead for the 200th email, only to accidentally get burned to a crisp once more by sparks flying off Homestar's short-circuiting Happy 8600. It has not been seen since.
  • Killed Off for Real:
    • The Paper.
      Strong Bad: "Why do all of my thirty-year-old electronics keep breaking on me?"
    • The New Paper is "killed" along with the Lappy in email #201, and is replaced by a digital speech bubble that Strong Bad calls the "Compé-per".
    • That lasts until the Compé is turned into the Lappier, where the current Paper used is a CGI Paper.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: In-Universe, Strong Bad loves the sound the Paper makes whenever it prints, and one of the reasons he considers the New Paper worse is its printing sound is far less enjoyable.
  • Perspective Magic: Is able to print itself to talk even out of nowhere.
  • Replacement Scrappy: invoked Strong Bad often laments that the New Paper is worse than the Old Paper. He does have plenty of reasons to dislike the New Paper, such as making a less enjoyable sound when it prints, having no comedic timing, often malfunctioning, and taking other people's sides.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: Because the CG paper doesn't make a sound when it appears, Strong Bad says "CG-eeeeow" for it.
  • Written Sound Effect: The sound the Paper makes whenever it appears is written as "preeeeow".

    The Stick 

The Stick

It's a stick. Designates the local cool hangout for the Brothers Strong.


    Wagon Fulla Pancakes 

Wagon Fulla Pancakes

Debut: "Email montage"
  • Animate Inanimate Object: In the final montage Strong Bad films, the Wagon challenges Homestar to the "Champeenship", and pulls itself during the training montage.
  • Cargo Ship: In-universe. Strong Bad films a montage of himself falling in love with the wagon.

    The Bennedettos 

The Bennedettos

Debut: "Email army"

Marzipan's appliances, who Homestar thinks are people (as he recruited Frank Bennedetto, a popcorn machine, for his "Homestarmy"). Other members include Mrs. Bennedetto, Marzipan's microwave, and others, Frank's "brothers", referred to in Strong Badia the Free. Mr. Bennedetto owes Homestar five bucks.

    Marshie 

Marshie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px_marshie.png
Don'cha like me?
Debut: "Fluffy Puff Commercial" (Early-Bird Cameo), "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.


  • 0% Approval Rating: He has the dubious honor of being the only character to not have a positive relationship with any of the characters (with the Little Girl being a possible exception). Homestar hates Marshie for taking his job as Fluffy Puff Marshmallow's pitchman, Strong Bad thinks Marshie's commercials should be rated NC-17 for "Needlessly Creepy times 17" and was annoyed that he attempted to "make a buck or nine off [his] heart-drooping loss" (his Lappy was stolen), and Marzipan does not fondly remember performing alongside Marshie.
  • Accidental Nightmare Fuel: 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. invoked
    Marshie: (Handheld footage in a changing room) WHAT MORE DO THEY WAAANT!?
    • Vampire!Marshie in "Fan Costumes 2018" claims if he ever heals the bite out of his head, he'll become "UNSTOPPABLE" in an unnaturally low voice.
  • Adorable Abomination: His "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!
  • Ambiguously Evil: It is suggested that Marshie is not only disturbing but genuinely evil. He is considered a "bad guy" in the song "Strong Bad is a Bad Guy", a vaporised Marshie cheerily says "you can't destroy me" in the sbemail "Candy Product", and the design of his Xeriouxly Forxe counterpart, Marxie, looks less ambiguously evil.
  • Catchphrase: "Made from the best stuff!"
  • Child Hater: Hates his younger counterpart Nibbles, who, despite his similarities to a Cousin Oliver, 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...
  • My Beloved Smother: Apparently, he can't do enough for his mother, as seen in "Cliffhanger".
    Marshie: Just email who you think done it on a 3x5 notecard, stick a Fluffy Puff on each corner, AND JUST WALK AWAY, MOTHER.
  • Replacement Scrappy: In-Universe example. Homestar absolutely despises him, and for good reason - even if he wasn't in-universe Nightmare Fuel, he still took Homestar's job as Fluffy Puff Marshmallow ad spokesman.
    Homestar: I hate that freakin' marshmallow...
  • Stepford Smiler: He's constantly smiling, but it's very clear that he's mentally disturbed on the inside and on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

    The Goblin 

The Goblin

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 he saves them from a Carnivorous Undead Sheep in "Most in the Graveyard".


    Homeschool Winner 

Homeschool Winner

Debut: "Character Cards"

A scrapped taller looking character resembling Homestar, only blue and with an overbite. He appeared once on a now hidden trading card animation, in the background of the game Dancin' Bubs, and as a silhouette in "A Decemberween Mackerel". Matt said in an interview that he was made after a friend thought their website was called "homeschoolwinner.com". They describe him as incredibly smart and more than a little creepy.


  • Armless Biped
  • Foil: Apparently for Homestar, judging by his name, his intelligence, and his pronounced overbite.
  • Meaningful Name: Just as Homestar's name reflects his athleticism, Homeschool's smarts are reflected in his.
  • Self-Duplication: Several clones of Homeschool appear as players in the music video for "Quickstart Overview", much to Homestar's concern.

    Limozeen 

Limozeen

I got the heart of a lion and the wings of a bat—BECAUSE IT'S MIDNITE!
Debut: "Email band names" (mentioned), "Email monster truck" (in-person)

The greatest hair metal band in the world (at least in Strong Bad's eyes), made up of brothers Larry (vocals), Gary (lead guitar), Perry (bass), and Mary (drums) Palaroncini. They sing songs about love and living in the fast lane, do gigs in Free Country USA and beyond, and have never quite left 1987. They had their own Saturday morning cartoon show in the '80s that was canceled before the first commercial break. Their manager is the nerdy Teeg Dougland, and Strong Bad is their biggest fan.


  • Gender-Blender Name: Mary.
  • Groupie Brigade: In But They're in Space!, they're stalked by a horde of alien groupies.
  • Hot-Blooded: They're very passionate about the metal they play.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Teeg Dougland basically is Mike Chapman.
  • Large Ham: Larry. The rest are all pretty sedate.
  • Myspeld Rökband: And they're so used to this pattern that they assume the name of fellow band Advantage is pronounced "Odd-von-TAYGE".
  • No Indoor Voice: Larry screams all of his dialog as if he were in front of a screaming crowd. Even when sitting in a quiet restaurant commenting on his food.
  • One-Episode Wonder: In-Universe, their cartoon. It was cancelled before the credits ran.
  • Reality Bleed: They started off as a random band name thrown out by Strong Bad in one of his emails before becoming a full-fledged part of the universe.
  • Recycled In Space: Parodied by their cartoon, Limozeen: But They're in Space! Strong Sad and Strong Bad used to provide the page quote regarding it.
  • Scatting: Their song "Feed the Childrens" is nothing but scatting, much to Strong Bad's annoyance.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With sloshy. Larry once calls Marzipan to complain she's collaborating with them instead of Limozeen.
  • Verbal Tic: Larry ends most of his sentences with "-uh!"
  • You Don't Look Like You: In the cartoon, Mary is unexplainably fat and red-haired.

    Nebulon 

Nebulon

Debut: "Main Page 1"

A little green alien who floats around in outer space. No one likes his style.


    Senor Cardgage 

Senor Cardgage

Cargeenan, Monteljohn, can you detect me to the nearest bus stamp?

An older, vaguely sleazy man who constantly uses nonsense-words. Strong Bad looks up to him; Marzipan looks down on him. While he lost the non-sequitur championship to Homsar, he's still not exactly known for his eloquence. He carries around a grocery bag full of melty candy bars that he eats loudly while standing to close to people.


  • Accidental Misnaming: Due to his Cloudcuckoolander nature, he always calls other characters by female names, regardless of gender. And then there was the time he called Homestar "Hot Pooey".
  • Ascended Extra: While he has never officially become a main character like Homsar has, he has had major roles in several toons including "Senor Mortgage," "Senorial Day," "Non-Sequitur Championship," "Coach Z Pukes in Dude's Toupee," and "A Decemberween Mackerel," and has made more appearances than any other character outside of the main twelve.
  • Broken Pedestal: When first introduced, Strong Bad looked up to Senor enough that he imagined himself as Senor Cardgage. As time progressed though, even he started to get creeped out by Senor Cardgage's antics.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He rarely has a coherent thought.
  • Cool Old Guy: Strong Bad saw him as this at first, but as time went on he slowly realized why nobody else saw him as this as well.
  • 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  whenever they say "tertiary". The curse is so specific it takes a "7 or 8 years later" Flash Forward before anybody notices the effects.
  • Dirty Old Man: If constantly referring to everyone as women regardless of their actual gender is any indication.
  • Foil: For Homsar. Heck, the Deleteheads even debate who's more of a Cloud Cuckoolander. (He lost.)
  • Hidden Depths: As too cool shows, his handwriting is noticeably fancy, if the package he sends Strong Bad is anything to go by.
  • Honest John's Dealership: At least he's aware of it:
    Senor: (standing on a lawnmower) Why, hello, Miss Trela. Check out Senor Cardgage's Intregway. Dump Tell No Mandy — it's just a landmower moved bankways.note 
  • Humans Are Smelly:
    Homestar: (to Pom-Pom) Hey, Pom-Pom, this guy smells like pea soup. (to Senor Cardgage, singsong) You smell like pea soup!
  • Identical Stranger: He's just Strong Bad but taller and lankier with a beer belly, combover, goatee and glasses. He looks more like Strong Bad than his brothers do, but the two are unrelated.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": A mild example, but notice how there's no accent symbol on the "n" - it's actually pronounced "seh-nor", not "sen-yor" like one might expect.
  • Jerkass: At times, such as when he walked off with Strong Bad's football after promising to "hit him on the slant".
  • Malaproper: His signature character trait is saying things that "aren't one word but aren't quite another." For example, he'll combine "Excuse me" and "Pardon me" into "Excardon me", and "Don't tell nobody" becomes "Dump Tell no Mandy".
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: He is this in some cartoons, such as when he is heard singing a creepy rhyme within a children's daycare building with barbed wire and a Chalk Outline outside. Strong Sad also sees him as such, informing Strong Bad that he gave him nightmares. And despite his hero-worship of the guy, Strong Bad himself bore witness to this in "hremail3184" when Senor Cardgage walked in place sans friction as disembodied traffic sounds echoed around him.
    Strong Bad: ...I'm quite scared right now.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Especially in lines, while eating old candy.
  • Perpetual Poverty: He's homeless and sleeps outside in a sleeping bag, with the closest thing he has to a home being a bush.
  • Rambling Old Man Monologue: Constantly. In "too cool", he went on one that apparently lasted for two or three hours before informing Strong Bad that they had "run out of film" (since he was being filmed on an old air freshener).
  • Real After All: Senor Cardgage first appeared when a fan asked Strong Bad what he would be like if he wasn't cool. At first he appears to just be a hypothetical version of Strong Bad, but then Strong Sad appears at the end of the episode to tell Strong Bad that he was basically describing Senor Cardgage, the creepy guy that lived down the street from them when they were little.
  • Self-Deprecation: Possibly in "Senor Cardgage Mortgage" in one of his few coherent moments
    Act now and see if you can stand to talk to me for more than four seconds!
  • Talkative Loon: When he isn't saying malapropisms, he's speaking complete gibberish. He even competed with Homsar over the title of "Non-Sequitor Champion". It's a 50-50 chance who will win, if watching the flash cartoon. If Homsar wins, he'll be there wearing a "THUMP" key hat saying, "My name's Millions, and I'm a son of a Chipwich!" If Senor Cardgage wins, he'll say, "Carrageenan, Monteljohn. Can you detect me to the nearest bus stamp?"
    Strong Sad: ... debate's over!
  • 13 Is Unlucky: Senor Cardgage's character video would chronologically be the thirteenth one recorded, and it is also cursed.
  • Vague Age: He's...older. Ish.

    Shark-Tooth Bubs 

Shark-Tooth Bubs

An alternate version of Bubs with two dot eyes, a set of fangs, and a unicorn-type horn coming out of his head. Unlike most of the H*R cast, he's voiced by Mike instead of Matt. Like the regular Bubs, he runs (or claims to run) a concession stand (in his case, called "Eight Burgers"). As with most of Mike's characters, his appearances are few and far between. With the exception of his debut in Theme Park, he has only appeared as a puppet or as a voice on the DVD commentaries.

Looks and name aside, his personality is only marginally similar to his better-known counterpart. Think of a slightly more articulate version of Homsar or Senor Cardgage and you're probably on the right track.

The brothers came up with the character after a Chinese toy designer sent them prototype plush toys of some of the characters. They were very amused at how the designer misinterpreted Bubs's eyes and mouth and decided to work him into one of their upcoming cartoons (The Theme Park email). They initially put him in a cartoon as an Affectionate Parody of unlicensed toys. However, every appearance since then has been as a character (complete with spoken lines) as opposed to just being a prop.


  • Ascended Extra: Not much of one, but considering that his first appearance was as a mere prop...
  • Cloudcuckoolander: just listen to him on Puppets on the Road on the 4th Strong Bad Email DVD or on the DVD commentary for Long Pants.
  • Jive Turkey: Much like Bubs, he speaks hip.
  • The Man Behind the Man: In The Curly-Fried Caper
  • Nothing Personal: "Sorry Piles, I've got my own styles."
  • Rousing Speech: "Heaven help us! Let us rest in the wake of the hours beneath! For tomorrow is a grand style! Courageously affording the brothers of our...Lester Brothers."
  • Rule of Three: See the Running Gag below
  • Running Gag: In Puppets on the Road, while in Philadelphia, he keeps referring to "the chicken man", a Philadelphia-based crime boss.
  • Turn Coat: Apparently, he doesn't care who owns the pile, so long as he gets to be "pile manager".

    TROGDOR the BURNiNATOR 

TROGDOR the BURNiNATOR

Trogdor was a man!
I mean... he was a dragon-man!
Er... maybe he was just a dragon...
But he was still TROGDOR!!! TROGDOR!!!
Debut: "Email dragon"

A stick-figure dragon with one beefy arm drawn by Strong Bad when a fan asked him to show his "skills of an artist", Trogdor is a monster who comes in the night, burninates all the people who live in thatch-roofed cottages, and generally terrorizes the land of Peasantry. Created as a one-off joke, Trogdor proved immensely popular thanks to his rocking metal theme song and soon starred in his own video game, and the legend grew from there. A full-length text-based Adventure Game, Peasant's Quest, introduced the heroic peasant Rather Dashing, who will stop at nothing (sans burnination) to stop Trogdor.


  • Affably Evil: He may be a remorseless dragon who wants nothing more than to burn everything in sight, but he's surprisingly cordial towards his would-be killer, Rather Dashing, stating that even though he's indestructible, Rather Dashing came closer than anyone ever did at hurting him. While he still burninated him, he considered it a great honor.
  • Ascended Extra: He started out as a drawing with a catchy song in one of Strong Bad's E-Mails, gained a huge following, and is the Big Bad of the fifth episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People: 8 Bit Is Enough.
  • Breakout Character: He's gotten some games in real life, and his theme song even appeared in Guitar Hero. In 2018, he became the title character of his own board game.
  • Creator Backlash: invoked From Strong Bad in "Trogday 08".
    "You internet types ruined Trogdor! Just like you did zombies, pirates, ninjas, and Strong Bad! Er, wait, no. Yeah!"
  • Half-Human Hybrid: His theme song goes from describing him as being Was Once a Man to this to just being a regular dragon.
  • Heavy Mithril: His theme song.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: For starters, he has sticks for legs, tiny wings, disembodied eyebrows, and one big beefy arm sticking out the back of his neck. Also, he's built like an Eastern-style dragon, but he breathes fire and terrorizes people like a Western-style one.
  • Perfectly Cromulent Word: "Burninate".
  • The Red Baron: "The Burninator", "the Wingaling Dragon", etc.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Implied. Despite himself and other characters saying he is invincible, Trogdor can indeed be killed, but he always seems to revive and come back so the real trick seems to be getting him to stay dead.
  • Retcon: In-Universe; his theme song states that he Was Once a Man, and then that he's a Half-Human Hybrid, and finally decides he's just a regular dragon.
  • Sore Loser: Never takes failure well. After Strong Bad successfully kills him twice in 8-Bit is Enough, he immediately goes after him. Also features prominently in the Trogdor board game, when Trogdor is hit without any health he goes on a huge temper tantrum moving and attacking randomly in a last ditch effort to destroy the countryside before leaving in a huff.
    Strong Bad: Trogdor doesn’t lose, he ragequits!
  • Strong as They Need to Be: Trogdor's level of power has ranged heavily over the course of his appearances. In his self-titled game, he's a One-Hit Point Wonder who can be killed easily by archers and knights. In Peasant's Quest, he's claimed to be "kinda indestructible", and the Trogsword does nothing more than wake him up. He's somewhere in between that in Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.
  • Was Once a Man: According to his theme song. Or maybe he was a dragon-man, or just a dragon.
  • Your Size May Vary: Trogdor's been everywhere from "size of a man" to "size of a house" to "about a hundred feet tall."

    Cherry Greg 

Cherry Greg

Debut: "Fluffy Puff Commercial"
The mysterious director for the Homestar website.
  • Butt-Monkey: Tends to be this when he's recording Homestar trying to get his lines right, only to fail constantly.
  • Determinator: He has enough patience to put up with Homestar's terrible habit of forgetting his lines.
  • The Faceless: His face is never shown as he's always shown in the background.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: He won the Remote Put event in the Strong Badathelon.

    Peacey P. 

Peacey P.

Debut: "Teen Girl Squad 13"
A popular rapper who specializes in guest appearances, even guest-starring in his own album.
  • Catchphrase: "Ya Biscuitheads!"
  • Cuckoosnarker: He refuses to take most of the artists he's guest-starring with seriously, leading to a lot of this. For example, he ordered breakfast in the middle of "Rap Song" after getting fed up with Coach Z's lame rhymes.
  • Eccentric Artist: The man once ordered breakfast in the middle of a rap song and guest-starred on his own album.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's left ambiguous whether or not he's an actual rapper or if he's a fictional creation of Strong Bad's or the Cheat's as he's only appeared in Teen Girl Squad and Powered by the Cheat videos. He is shown doing compilations with Taranchula and Coach Z.
  • A Wild Rapper Appears!: He's "the best guest rapper in the music biz". It's the entirety of his career, to the point where he guest-starred on his own album.

    Crack Stuntman 

Crack Stuntman

Debut: "Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 14.2"
The voice actor of Gunhaver from Cheat Commandos and a spokesperson for Pistols for Panda.
  • Catchphrase: "Blaaaaaaaah'm Crack Stuntman."
  • Cool Shades: He wears them all the time.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He resembles Frank Welker. "The Next Epi-Snowed!" also gives him a bit of Casey Kasem, as he insists that his own traits in Real Life should also apply to Gunhaver, much like how Kasem pushed for Shaggy to be made a vegetarian like himself.
  • Verbal Tic: He has a tendency to say "blah". This is shown when he introduces himself and when he discovers that "Pistols for Pandas" is a non-profit organisation.

    Humidibot 

Humidibot

Debut: "Fan Costumes 2015"
A robotic (de)humidifier. Little is know about him other than that he has a girlfriend named Humidibeth and that he likes to tell people his name.
  • Ascended Extra: To a small degree. Strong Bad was impressed, if confused, when someone dressed up as him for Halloween... when the character was just a way to make fun of someone's room in an earlier Halloween video.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Humidibeth.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Strong Bad later realizes that he's actually a DEhumidifier rather than a humidifier. In addition, the device in the photograph that inspired Humidibot was actually an air purifier.

    Dijjery Doo 

Dijjery Doo

Debut: "Homestar Runner Goes for the Gold"
A brown, vaguely mammalian creature with large ears and tusks.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: His attempt to sabotage Strong Sad fails miserably; he pulls out a missile, but he nearly loses his grip as his tusk falls out. His tusk impales Strong Bad in the head, he falls on him, and the missile explodes.
  • Character Tics: His left tusk has a tendency to fall out whenever he speaks.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: He is not very good at being evil.
  • Punny Name: His name is a pun of the didgeridoo, an Australian Aboriginal wind instrument.
  • Speech Impediment: His tusks severely hamper his speech and make him sound like he is chewing on straws. They also have a tendency to fall off.
  • Replacement Scrappy: In-Universe example. The Cheat despises him for replacing him as Strong Bad's sidekick, even closing the crate on him the second he pops the lid open. Even in the context of the story where he's introduced, Strong Bad states that he regrets recruiting Dijjery Doo onto his team almost immediately.
    The Videlectrix Guys 
Debut: "Peasant's Quest Preview"
A pair of game devs that develop the various Retraux games on the site.
  • Catchphrase: "Good graphics" for Videlectrix One.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Videlectrix One is angry, loudly passionate about graphics, and difficult to work with, while Videlectrix Two is a soft-spoken Extreme Doormat resigned to his partner's rants.
  • You Are Number 6: The two are only known as Videlectrix One and Videlectrix Two.
