This article is about the character. For the game, see Stinkoman 20X6.
Looking for challenge

Stinkoman (also spelled Stinko Man) is Strong Bad's 20X6 counterpart. He is an amalgam of anime clichés, including blue hair, big eyes, a blocky sort of body and an obsession with challenging and fighting. His greatest fight was against Stickly Man, who wasn't much of a challenge. He seems more than willing to eat dirt, since he has done so on more than one occasion. Stinkoman apparently has a cell phone, as he claims to when he invites Marzipan to a challenge in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 8.0. He has the ability to call his ship, the Stinkowing, when he whistles. He was introduced in japanese cartoon, but his name was first mentioned in island, where Homestar Runner called Strong Bad "Stinkoman". Although Strong Bad always used to be mean to Homestar, Stinkoman is much nicer to 1-Up. Stinkoman is also referred to as "The Guy".

His only Halloween costume (or "cosplay") was Speed Racer.

Several of Stinkoman's more famous lines, such as "Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you asking for a challeeeeeeeeenge?!" or "No way, you're just a kid! Maybe when you're older", are surprisingly similar to those said by Tengu Man, a boss enemy from Mega Man 8, such as "It's just a kid, don't make me laugh!" and "Are you worthy of my challenge?", both in content and voice intonation.

The line "No way, you're just a kid! Maybe when you're older!" is also used several times in the anime movie Akira (or some variation, depending on the translation). The 20X6 and Akira connection is seen again later in the Easter egg for 3 Times Halloween Funjob.

He also stars in the game Stinkoman 20X6, which The Brothers Chaps introduced in the NYU Talk and later released on the website. Stinkoman's sprite in the game Stinkoman 20X6 is in fact an edit from the original MegaMan sprite for the NES.
