The Brothers Chaps have used many different fonts within the Homestar Runner body of work.

Note: Oftentimes, different font corporations, or foundries, will publish virtually identical fonts under different names. For instance, Linotype's Eurostile is Bitstream's Square 721. In cases where the actual font used cannot be distinguished between two identical variants, the name with the older lineage should be used.
