:No.  It was [[Talk:Twelve_Times_a_Day_Man|discussed]], and decided since it's a minor variant of an established character (like [[Talk:Modestly_Hot_Homsar|Modestly Hot Homsar]]), it doesn't get it's own page.  The ones that mention, while minor, appeared on screen, so need to have an article.  It's rather a tricky thing to figure out, but I believe that's why the difference. {{User:Wbwolf/sig}} 04:49, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Ding! Strong Sad is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


Strong Zoloft

  • I think that lump on top of Strong Sad's head is inspired by Zoloft ads.

No, the ads came afterwards. The Brothers Chap should sue! (just kidding)--Hysterical Woman 11:51, 25 Sep 2004 (MST)

  • Come to think of it, the little Zoloft people look exactly like Strong Sad's disembodied head, except their eyes aren't as shiny. In his old style, this would not have mattred.
  • I read somewhere that the Zoloft mascot was a rock, though the way it's drawn, it certainly does look like it has a lump. I wonder what TBC did have in mind when they drew Strong Sad's head that way. Mr. Bland had one too, but it remains open to speculation. --Ogog
  • To me, Strong Sad's looks like he's wearing a Smurf hat.
  • Well this isn't importaint but I think that the lump on S.S.'s head is resault of being pumbled every hour on the hour buy Strong Mad and Bad the lump i think is one of those cartoon bumps when you get hit on the head.
  • Maybe Strong Sad has hair. Who knows? Maybe that lump could be a little bit of hair. Cheddarlebbon
  • Y'know, before I found H*, a link between Strong Sad and the Zoloft mascot would never have crossed my mind. I always thought the Zoloft "rock" looked a lot like the Intel "Pentium Inside" logo, though.

Five Fingers?

Is it worth noting that in best thing (and in a few similar scenes), Strong Sad has five fingers? -

Strong Sad does not have five fingers in best thing. Homestramy20|Talk 03:39, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)

"Strong Sad Rocks Out" Music Video

 [[The Skate Party]] made a song called "Strong Sad Rocks Out" with a wiki user created music video] for the song. 

This is now a dead link, so I've taken it off the page, if anyone has a working link feel free to add it to the page. --heavy bolter 11:32, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

donno if this is the same 1 but..

Misunderstood guy

I like Strong sad, I think It's safe to say I would be friends with him in real life, of course, I'd make fun of him around strong bad and alot of other guys, but I'd convince him that I was foolin. Thechamp 13:41, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I totally agree, I think Strong Sad would be an okay guy if he wasn't so down on himself all the time.Homestramy20

Strong Sad is a great guy, but his constant depression seems keep the other characters from being friends with him. But I would be friends with him. Strong Sader

Same here! I would totally be friends with him.20X6 GEM

Hes also my favorite:D even more so than Homestar! But just a little bit... Homestramy20|Talk 01:11, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

He's not that depressed. Strong Bad makes it look like he is. He seems like a nice guy 'cause he befriends Homsar, which is an adventure within itself. XD --MrsCommanderson 00:59, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Well, actually I think Strong Sad is quite depressed. Sure, Strong Bad might make it seem more than it is, but the depressed person is pretty much what Strong Sad stands for. Seriously. Homestramy20|Talk 03:30, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Strong Sad is a great guy, and he actually got along with Strong Bad when they were little, and I know why Strong Bad turned on him. On the photo album I saw, it says that one time Strong Bad was cheating on something, and Strong Sad refused to help, so Strong Bad always does bad stuff to him. Cheddarlebbon

i would be best friends with him--Valf 23:51, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

Yeah. I think that the other characters often portray him in a bad light. If Strong Sad was real, I'd be friends with him. And Homsar too. Strong Sad is probably one of my favourite characters. Haldo. How are you? 15:49, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Now that we're talking aboot Strong Sad as a buddy it reminds me of a guy at my school. He looks like Strong Sad in a really small way! So I have a Strong Sad friend (he aint depressed and dorky though). 20:34, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I can't help but notice that this topic seems to have attracted about one person per year. Odd. OptimisticFool 21:00, 17 May 2008 (UTC)


In the SB-Eamil, Strong Bad calls Strong Sad a "cute baby brother". Was he giving him a compliment? Because this is the first time I have noticed Strong Bad say anything nice about Strong Sad.

Well, he did compliment Strong Sad's rhythm in caper. -- tomstiff 19:09, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Exacactly. So this is just another instance of how Strong Bad might think a bit higher of his little brother than he makes it seems.
Whoa, this is Strong Bad were talking about here people Homestramy20|Talk 08:02, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)


Okay, I feel quite stupid asking this, But what does Strong Sad mean in this line from his Character page?

STRONG SAD: And it got me thinking, you know? Two lovers... collide...

Homestramy20|Talk 02:57, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I think it's actually 'two lovers... alive'. --DorianGray

Either way, I don't understand it.. is it suppost to be, creey? Or disturbing? Homestramy20|Talk 02:57, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)

No, it's really just a Strong Sad-ism, I think. --DorianGray

Hmm.. okay. Yeah, probably him just being... strangly random... Homestramy20|Talk 04:25, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)

This is an old convo, I know... but... isn't there a song "When 2 Fools Collide"? --אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay)

Have you noticed

strong sad seems to be less depressiong unlike in the earlier cartoons?

Nikolce Kocovski 10:48, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

I still think SS is depressing, he's just developed a bit more, grown more character. Homestramy20|Talk 22:28, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
And Coach Z seems to get more and more depressing... talk Bubsty edits 03:26, 23 December 2005 (UTC)


I noticed this image was updated by someone, but then reverted. While I agree with this revert, as the new image had too much empty space, I do think a new image would be nice. Why? Because the current image only shows a part of his body and is in an old style. We gots to stay current, you know? - Joshua 17:51, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

I second that. I think a full body shot should be a requirement for a bio page like this. --DorianGray


This Strong Sad article says that "...his only friends are Marzipan, whom he seems to have a crush on..." I can't seem to recall any instance in which this has happened. Could someone show me an example of this if it's not too much trouble? - Almo

Try checking some of the Answering Machines, especially the older ones. --DorianGray
I think that's open to interpretation. Whereas Coach Z and Bubs are clearly trying to hit Ms. Pan up for dates, Strong Sad may be simply trying to make a friend anywhere he can. I don't hear anything in his messages that clearly indicates romantic interest. Indeed, it would be in character for Strong Sad to be too juvenile, too nerdy, or just plain too pathetic to want a girlfriend. (Don't get me wrong, I love Strong Sad.) I'm not saying he doesn't have a crush on Marzipan; I'm just saying there may not be enough evidence for us to assert that he does. Anybody got any other relevant data points? — Bill

Well, you can see Strong Sad has a crush on Marzipan in Strong Sad's charactor video where Marzipan is recording it. At the end, Strong Sad says "When lovers colide". Cheddarlebbon

Belly Button

Is it worth mentioning baby Strong Sad's lack of belly button? - Quolnok

It's already mentioned, in a way - "The true origin of Strong Sad's belly button is unknown, though it has been hinted that (L'il) Strong Bad created it with a drill." — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 18:54, 5 March 2006 (UTC)


Does anyone think that Strong Sad has a noteworthy way of exaggerating words like gOOOOse and lOOOse? Kefti islander 02:55, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

You're referring to "loose leaf" and "dead goose at me", I don't think two is notable. And the second is nowhere near as drawn out as the first. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:04, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Should we remove the "email Strong Sad" link?

I just emailed Strong Sad asking when Strong Sad's Lament is going to be updated. I got this as a response. About 45 minutes later (48 if you want to be exact), I received this reply:

Strong Sad is no longer accepting emails because you people kept signing me up for "natural male enhancers." That, and the death threats weren't very cool either. Leemee 'lone! Strong Sad

I guess it didn't get much — if any — legitimate mail. Unless that's what the old Easter egg mentioned in the depressio commentary was and it's back. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 23:53, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

That's noted here already. It could be noted here as well, I suppose. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:13, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Strong Sad = Hamlet?

I found this image as an advertisement on


Call it a shot in the dark, but this looks suspiciously like Strong Sad, doesn't it? Guessing by context, the image here seems to be of Hamlet. And it makes sense, too - Hamlet is perhaps the greatest chronically depressed character in literature. If this is in fact a common way of portraying Hamlet, can anyone verify a connection between Hamlet's image and Strong Sad's origin?

Hey, i can't see the picture that u found. Could u try to fix it? -Strong Rose

Lump = Hair?

I think the lump is just quaffed back hair. Anyone else think so? Strong Sader 09:46, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I have to disagree. If you look at the figurine, it is actually a lump. Remember when Homestar put a sock on his head in impression? That's why.

a photo of the figurine SaltyTalk! 14:00, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Strong Sad's Music

That's a really good addition to his character page. But I have another band that he probably listens to.

What about They Might Be Giants? He quoted "Don't Let's Start" on his blog once ("Everybody dies frustrated and sad, and that is beautiful."), and during the Experimental Film commentary, he seemed to be defending the band (or at least the band's name) when Strong Bad and Homestar misname TMBG.

Someone comment on this; I think the band should be on his list. - User:TheDeathlyPallor

Good catch. I'll add it to the page. --Trogga 15:35, 17 October 2006 (UTC)


This discussion was moved from Talk:Lurker after Lurker was merged with this article.

This should be merged with Strong Sad since nobody else is called a lurker. I also don't think it's significant enough to warrant it's own article. Loafing 06:05, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

All right, then. Go ahead. Retromaniac 16:33, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Even though thia topic's been dormant, I agree with merging the article with Strong Sad. I feel the information deserves to be a part of the wiki, but doesn't deserve its own page. Bluebry 20:36, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Agree. Merge. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:37, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Unless anyone has any immediate objections, perhaps we should merge it right now. — Lapper (talk) 03:39, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
Looks likes solid consensus to me — I'm going to go ahead and merge it. Trey56 18:34, 6 January 2007 (UTC)


Hey, call it a hunch, but I think that Strong Sad's age is somewhere between 18-24, as seen in looking old. when Strong Bad goes to "relate to some 18-24 year olds", he goes to Strong Sad. What do you guys think? --Strong Rose 19:59, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Check Talk:looking old#Estimated ages? for an involved discussion relating to the characters' ages. --DorianGray


Has anyone else noticed that Strong Sad never blinks, while other characters do?--It Was the Book of my Dreams 05:20, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Not really, coz, like, Marzi and Homestar are the only ones who blink with any regularity. --DorianGray 05:24, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm not saying all the other characters blink, I'm saying some do.--It Was the Book of my Dreams 05:42, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
More don't than do, though. --DorianGray 06:21, 24 March 2007 (UTC)


Why hasn't anyone noticed that Strong Sad has an extremely obvious cliched Canadian accent?--

I can sorta hear it if I listen for it but I'd never noticed. I think it's just a minor coincidence. If it were really supposed to be a Canadian accent, there are numerous things they would have exaggerated to make it obvious but they didn't, so I don't really think it's supposed to be a clichéd accent.BryanCTC 16:16, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
You didn't mean to post this on Talk:Coach Z by any chance?BryanCTC 16:19, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

No, I'm fairly certain I was talking about Strong Sad. I think is occasional exageration of "oo" might be a reference to it.--Homsar Lover


What does thrice mean?--Kanjiro talk 03:54, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

It's a fancy word for three times (rather like how twice means "two times"). Don't worry, there's no "fourice", as far as I know. --DorianGray 03:57, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Shouldn't we put something like "Occasionally", or "A few times", instead of "Thrice so far"? --Kanjiro talk 04:14, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes. We tend not to like "at the moment"-type statements. Hard to keep track of and update. You wanna go ahead and do the honors? — Defender1031*Talk 04:15, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Sure, why not.--Kanjiro talk 04:16, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Once, twice, thrice, frice, fvice, sxice, svice, eice, nice, ten times. 04:23, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Anything over frice gives me the jibbles.--Kanjiro talk 04:25, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Twelve-Times-A-Day Man Article?

Shouldn't Twelve-Times-A-Day Man get his own article since Fat Bluebird, Tom Servo, Don Knotts do? 20X6 GEM 04:41, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

No. It was discussed, and decided since it's a minor variant of an established character (like Modestly Hot Homsar), it doesn't get it's own page. The ones that mention, while minor, appeared on screen, so need to have an article. It's rather a tricky thing to figure out, but I believe that's why the difference. wbwolf (t | ed) 04:49, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
