- Magnificent Bastard: A popular Alternate Character Interpretation for Blockhead is that he's secretly a genius and is merely using Obfuscating Stupidity to Troll his conscience. Word of God has stated that he's both a moron and a genius, saying that he is unbelievably stupid but also pointing out the fact that Blockhead always comes off the better despite actions that should win him several simultaneous Darwin Awards.

YMMV / Blockhead
