Although the ages of the characters are left intentionally ambiguous, there are some, albeit contradictory, indications.

Contents

Bubs

  • Email narrator — Strong Bad refers to Bubs (and Coach Z) as "old men".
  • Fall Float Parade (Easter egg) — Homestar Runner calls Bubs "Old Mr. Bubs".
  • Email isp — Strong Bad calls Bubs "Old Man Bubs".
  • Email slumber party — Bubs is among the "older kids" (himself, Coach Z, and the King of Town).
  • Email winter pool — Bubs distinguishes himself from other characters, namely Strong Bad, Homestar, and Strong Sad, calling them "young'uns".
  • Email rated — Bubs is too young to get into a RRR-rated movie; this makes him no older than sixty.

Coach Z

  • Email stand-up — In the Lil' Strong Bad video, Coach Z is portrayed as an adult, indicating that he is substantially older than Strong Bad.
  • Email narrator — Strong Bad refers to Coach Z (and Bubs) as "old men".
  • Email caffeine — Coach Z refers to himself as "an old man".
  • Email highschool — Coach Z (albeit in Strong Bad's "doodle memory") was a baby along with Strong Bad, Pom Pom, The Poopsmith and Strong Sad, even though he is apparently older than all of them.
  • Email what I want and Decemberween Short Shorts — Coach Z's afro'd visage is featured on an ornament from 1974.
  • Email senior prom — Coach Z is apparently old enough to be the 'chaperon' of the senior prom.
  • Email slumber party — Coach Z is among the "older kids" (himself, Bubs, and the King of Town).
  • Happy Dethemberween — Coach Z says that in his day "it was 8-tracks" that were put into his slippers by the Decemberween Thnikkaman, rather than blank casettes and CDs. The heyday of the 8-track was from the late '60s to mid '70s.
  • Email rated — Coach Z is too young to get into a RRR-rated movie; this makes him no older than sixty.

Homestar Runner

  • Email trading cards — Homestar recalls getting 22 butt pats from Coach Z in 1984, meaning he was alive at that time.
  • Email highschool — Homestar (albeit in Strong Bad's "doodle memory") was older than all of the other characters, who appeared as babies.
  • Email senior prom — Homestar is apparently young enough to be a participant in what is supposedly a high school prom.
  • Email winter pool — Homestar is called a "young'un" by Bubs, implying he is much younger.

Marzipan

  • Email stand-up — In the Lil' Strong Bad video, Coach Z mentions "Little Marzipan", implying that Marzipan and Strong Bad are around the same age.
  • Email senior prom — Marzipan is apparently young enough to be a participant in what is supposedly a high school prom.

Strong Bad

  • Strong Bad is older than Strong Sad (depressio; different town; lady...ing) but younger than Strong Mad (the facts), therefore making him the middle child of The Brothers Strong.
  • The Secrets That I Keep — Strong Bad and Strong Sad were kids at the same time, so they are probably close in age.
  • Email stand-up — Lil' Strong Bad is shown to be younger than Coach Z.
  • Since Strong Bad often refers to doing things in 1987, such as checking what Japanese cartoons are called (TrogdorCon '97), and meeting Van Mundegaarde (2 years), he was presumably born before this.
  • Email looking old — Strong Bad attempts to stay relevant to a younger audience. When he says he is going to "relate to some 18-24 year olds", he goes to Strong Sad. Since they were kids at the same time, Strong Bad would presumably be around this age. However, Strong Bad also implies that people in this age range are "at least 10 years younger" wjicj would make him 34.
  • Email diorama — Strong Bad is demonstrating how to create "middle-school appropriate" dioramas, and mentions he made some based on made-up books prior to the advent of the internet, which made prominent growth in 1996; this would imply that Strong Bad was out of middle school (over 14 or 15) by that year, making him at least 26 years old.
  • Email winter pool — Strong Bad is called a "young'un" by Bubs, implying he is much younger.
  • Blubb-O's Commercial — Strong Bad refers to himself as "being a young person" for the purposes of the commercial.
  • Email rated — Strong Bad is too young to get into a RRR-rated movie; this makes him no older than sixty.

Strong Mad

  • Strong Mad is the eldest of The Brothers Strong.

Strong Sad

  • Strong Sad is the youngest of The Brothers Strong.
  • Email boring (really) — Strong Sad was not yet born in 1916.
  • Email rough copy — Strong Sad's dialogue indicates that he must be older than eight.
  • Email looking old — Strong Bad visits with Strong Sad after vowing to "relate to some 18–24 year olds".
  • Email senior prom — Strong Sad is apparently young enough to be a participant in what is supposedly a high school prom.
  • Emails radio and concert — Some of Strong Sad's musical preferences seem to place him in the "college-age" demographic.
  • Email winter pool — Strong Sad is called a "young'un" by Bubs, implying he is much younger.

The Cheat

  • Email cheatday — The Cheat was almost certainly not born on 4/18/1961.
  • Email flashback — Strong Bad recounts the Cheat's supposed "birth".

The King of Town

  • Email space program — The King of Town claims to be "in [his] sixties".
  • Email slumber party — The King of Town is among the "older kids" (himself, Bubs, and Coach Z).
  • Email the bet — Strong Bad calls The King of Town a creepy old man.

Teen Girl Squad

  • In Issue 5, Cheerleader claims that they are in college, while So And So claims that they are in 8th grade. It is implied that Cheerleader is lying.
  • In Issue 3, Strong Bad states that the Teen Girl Squad are between the ages of 13 and 19.
  • In Issue 9, What's Her Face claims to have had her driver's license for over a year. Given that American teenagers get their license around age 16, this would put What's Her Face around the age of 17.

Trogdor and Stinkoman

  • As seen in Happy Trogday, Trogdor's birthday is the day that dragon debuted (January 13, 2003), making him 16 years old. Likewise, Stinkoman's birthday is the day that japanese cartoon debuted (January 6, 2003), possibly making him 16 years old.
