Especially in the early years of [[Homestar Runner (body of work)|Homestar Runner]], [[Strong Bad]]'s mouth has been most often seen to be in a slight frown, usually in a rectangular or round (when he talks) shape. His mouth was curved in such a way as to suggest he is often upset. However, there have also been plenty of times when he has '''smiled''', an effect created by slightly distorting the upper part of Strong Bad's rectangular mouth, turning his expression into an unmistakable smile. While some of these smiles were in reaction to or anticipation of his usual misdeeds, he has also found other reasons to smile. As Strong Bad became a more prominent character over the years, the rate at which he would smile noticeably increased. Although crude drawings of Strong Bad may have their own variations of this frequent phenomenon, the real Strong Bad has, and, most likely, always will have the same, bizarre, distorted rectangle of a smile.

"You got SBLOUNSKCHED!"

Especially in the early years of Homestar Runner, Strong Bad's mouth has been most often seen to be in a slight frown, usually in a rectangular (or round, when he makes an "O" sound) shape. His mouth was curved in such a way as to suggest he is often upset. However, there have also been plenty of times when he has smiled, an effect created by slightly distorting the upper part of Strong Bad's rectangular mouth, turning his expression into an unmistakable smile. While some of these smiles were in reaction to or anticipation of his usual misdeeds, he has also found other reasons to smile. As Strong Bad became a more prominent character over the years, the rate at which he would smile noticeably increased. Although crude drawings of Strong Bad may have their own variations of this phenomenon, the real Strong Bad has, and, most likely, always will have the same, bizarre, distorted rectangle of a smile.

Smiling became a more-or-less common and normal part of Strong Bad's character around 2006. Only selected instances of smiling since then are listed.
