Character: Strong Mad
watch Strong Mad's character video The Cheat Strong Sad



A monolith of muscle and hostility, Strong Mad is, as his name implies, strong and usually mad. His brothers are Strong Bad and Strong Sad, and he is the oldest of the three. He and The Cheat are "The next bosom buddies" according to a TV TIME cover, and though he often tries to help Strong Bad with his evil plans, he usually only messes up. He communicates mostly in simple sentences shouted in an uninflected roar. He seems to be a wrestler (or perhaps was one in the past), since he wears a blue spandex singlet with an "M" on it. He's a big lug, but with a big heart: though you wouldn't know it to look at him, Strong Mad has a soft side. In Where's The Cheat? he cries over an autographed picture of The Cheat, given to him by the little yellow guy.

Strong Mad IS a posse

Strong Mad apparently enjoys sports. He dressed as Kobe #2 in A Decemberween Pageant; he has dressed as a professional sports player twice in Halloween episodes (Refrigerator Perry, Ben Wallace); he wore a baseball cap with the Detroit Tigers' logo on it as Magnum, P.I.; he is the sports reporter for Strong Badia Action Cool News 5; he has a statue of a football player in his room; and he wore a football helmet in Ever and More!.

Strong Mad's creative drive has produced two works of dinosaur-themed art (an MS Paint drawing of a "fairly hot brontosaurus" and the claymation short Doug the Dino). At Strong Bad's behest he has also carved the word "DAGRON" in a table and produced a portrait of Strong Bad in glitter and macaroni. Despite these achievements, Strong Bad has devoted an entire email to explaining why Strong Mad can't produce his own cartoon show. His musical talent is evident, however: he plays what looks like a black Hofner Violin bass guitar in guitar, Cool Things, and Weclome Back, and the drums in highschool, and he's a natural death metal singer.

Strong Mad is, oddly, the only main character to have five fingers and a visible nose. He seems more than willing to eat otherwise inedible objects, such as rocks, chain-whips, and printed e-mails. He does not, however, want to eat a guitar. Strong Bad implied he was surprised he hasn't eaten The Cheat by now. When Strong Mad inhales helium, his voice stays the same, but when he sucks up bandwidth through a garden hose, his voice gets high pitched and his mouth gets tiny. Strong Mad has a Horrible Painting in his closet that gives Strong Bad the jibblies. He apparently needs reading glasses.

Strong Mad seems to want a pet, as he (as Marzipan put it) "absconded with" Bubs' Concession Stand during the Fall Float Parade and tried to convince Strong Bad to let him keep it, saying it followed him home.

Physical Statistics

"He's like a big square, this guy."

Apparently, Strong Mad's height and weight are not definite. He's simply large and heavy, and as with many other things, the specifics can change from cartoon to cartoon. As stated on the OBEY style stickers, Strong Mad is 8 feet, 3 inches tall, and weighs 900 pounds. According to Strong Bad in the facts, he is 88 inches (7 feet 4 inches) tall and 88 inches wide. As described by The Cheat in i she be, he is only 6 feet tall. In Marshmallow's Last Stand, it is stated that Strong Mad and Strong Bad have a combined weight of one million pounds. Apparently, Strong Mad is simply a big guy, and specific measurements are given only when needed for a joke or to convey a meaning.

As seen in fingers, Strong Bad is a Bad Guy, and death metal, Strong Mad's shoulders are squared-off, almost cubic, though his figurine is rounder with a football-shaped top. When necessary, he is able to contract his frame into a spherical shape, as he did when performing a cannonball dive in keep cool. Strong Mad lacks a neck; there is no clear distinction between his head and his body.
