"We're, uh, doing The Cheat's taxes."

The TROGDOR! Arcade Machine is an arcade cabinet located in the Basement of the Brothers Strong that runs the aforementioned game. The side of the machine has a depiction of Trogdor burninating a knight and a peasant, similar to that found in the game's title screen. Kicking it causes a digitized voice saying "Trogdor" to be heard.

The machine was first seen in Arcade Game, where Strong Bad, Strong Mad, and The Cheat play this game, telling Homestar Runner that they're doing The Cheat's taxes. Homestar later comments that it is "one big adding machine". It serves as the bonus menu on all strongbad_email.exe DVDs, where Strong Bad will begin playing the game if you fail to make a selection quickly enough. It has appeared in pixelated form, first in Kid Speedy and again in pizza joint as an item that can be purchased for 50 Pizz Points on virtualpizz.biz.

The machine is broken in all episodes of Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People. In the final episode, 8-Bit is Enough, Strong Bad jumps and crashes into it, damaging the 8-Bit Containment Field. At first, Strong Sad thinks the fan is broken, but then the machine turns into Trogdor and "[runs] around all over the place beatin' people up and scaring everyone". Strong Bad fixes the machine by putting a logic board into it. According to the Videlectrix Guys, the logic board is not to be near anything that's been exposed to radiation, as it could potentially cause the end of existence. When Strong Bad finally puts the logic board in the machine, it turns back to normal, but Trogdor has escaped from it, and so have many other Videlectrix characters. In extended play, the machine can be used to play Trogdor's 3D-Ungeon.
