'''Nebulon''' is an [[alien]] who is most often seen in [[Outer Space|space]] and on the [[The Moon|moon]]. He first appeared on [[Main Page 1]], but he was not named until [[The Cheat]]'s cartoon [[New Boots]]. According to The Cheat's rendition of [[Strong Bad]] in his cartoon, no one likes Nebulon's [[style]].  Since then, Nebulon has made a number of cameo appearances ranging from a drawing, a wooden cutout, or other various novelty items, but he did not actually appear as a real character in any Homestar Runner cartoon until [[winter pool]].  He has also never been known to say anything, though the [[Stinkomanual]] attributes the quote "Another green salad, another iced tea..." to him.

His appearance changes slightly depending on where he shows up, but generally, Nebulon has a green tube-like body with three pinkish spots, a large mouth with prominent jagged teeth and tongue, and yellow eyes on stalks.  He also has a tail and short legs that make him appear like he's always sitting.  When Nebulon is told to go away, the mouth closes into a frown and a distinctive [[sound effect]] is heard.

Nebulon made a brief appearance in the sole episode of [[Limozeen]]'s [[Limozeen: "but they're in space!"|space cartoon]].  He also appeared in an Easter egg in the email [[narrator]], where [[Marzipan]] (as some type of enormous alien cow) says she has always admired Nebulon's style. (Nebulon seems less than pleased by this statement.)  He made another appearance as a wooden cutout in the email [[senior prom]], where the theme was "Entrapment All Up On the Moon". [[Homestar Runner]] also has a pair of Nebulon slippers.

Nebulon is also the [[Stinkoman 20X6 Enemies and Items#Bosses|boss]] of [[Stinkoman 20X6]] [[Stinkoman 20X6 Walkthrough Level 5|Level 5]]. It is unclear whether this is the same Nebulon or a [[20X6]] counterpart, as it is bigger, stronger and has a much different physique, though the [[Stinkomanual]] says that he's been working out. When you beat Nebulon, [[1-Up]] repeats the phrase "Get out of here, Nebulon! No one likes your style!"

[[The Poopsmith]] wore a Nebulon-styled inner tube in [[keep cool]]. When he was forbidden from entering Strong Bad's pool, he slumped his shoulders, and Nebulon's exit sound was heard.

-
In the email [[looking old]], Strong Bad asked others for advice on how to improve his image for a younger audience. [[Strong Mad]] advised him to "[[Wear a Bikini!|WEAR A DIAPER!]]" and presented him with a Nebulon [[diaper]].
+
-
 
+
-
Although Nebulon does not appear in the game [[Secret Collect]], the creators of that game's cartoon still used him in the bumper, as seen in [[web comics]].
