While Bubs also has "cilia" patches, his outline suggests the stereotypical image of an amoeba rather than the typical "footprint" shape of a paramecium.

This type of [[Wikipedia:Virus|virus]] attacks bacteria, not paramecia, and forces the host cell to create copies of the virus by modifying the cell's DNA.

*Strong Bad seems to be a little confused on Coach Z's age: In his "middle school" flashback, Coach Z appears about the same age as he is, but in [[stand-up]], Strong Sad's video tape reveals that Coach Z was already an adult when Strong Bad was a little kid. Their conflicting ages were also seen in [[record book]], which also shows that Strong Bad resembled his Lil' self as a baby, as opposed to the melon-headed variant.
