Ding! Strong Mad 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.

[edit] Best Thing appearance

"Also, his dimensions from the side seem to be somewhat rectangular, as seen in an easter egg from best thing."

Strong Mad doesn't appear in Best Thing. I think whoever posted this "fact" named the wrong toon. Poopsmith Z

[edit] Dream Theater Reference

The title of the web page, "Light fuse get away" is the name of a song by the band Dream Theater. We should have some format for "external references" in the character videos. Actually, I think I will edit the "Character Videos" page right now.

"Light fuse, get away" is just a typical instruction on a fireworks box. 71.231.56.40 17:47, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

And technically, it's called "Light Fuse AND Get Away". Homsar7

[edit] how much is

one million pounds? Nikolce Kocovski 09:44, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

It's slightly less than one-million-two pounds! I remember learning that in school!Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 15:50, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

1 000 000 lbs = 453 592.4 kg (assuming all the figures in the original number are significant) — It's dot com 16:45, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Heh... sorry for my smart-alec response above. :) It was too good an opportunity for a random HSR reference to pass up. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 17:43, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Nah, don't worry about, i can use a joke hear and there sometimes.

Says on the article page that he's 900 Pounds.Get a grip.--Gir007 23:17, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

"Get a grip"? Gir007, this conversation occured two months ago, and has already been answered. Why did you bring this up again, and, more importantly, why did you tell Nikolce Kocovski to "get a grip"? —FireBird|Talk 23:21, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Glasses?

should it be mentioned that Strong Mad apparently needs glasses? Evidence: rampage, Processing

Go for it. You might mention that he uses them for reading. — It's dot com 22:51, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Andre the Giant

Is it worth pointing out that Strong Mad's voice is an impression of the late Andre the Giant? No-one else here seems to have noticed this.

I don't remember anybody in The Princess Bride saying "GET IN MAH BELLY!". But seriously, I don't think they sound alike. Loafing 20:21, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
There is the obvious connection between Strong Mad has a Posse and André_the_Giant_Has_a_Posse, but I don't think their voices are that similar. Trey56 20:27, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
That's really odd that you would say that. I wouldn't call it a *good* impression, or even a *consistent* one (because Andre didn't always sound like that, but an impression it certainly is. Maybe the Brothers would be the ones to ask about that, because I'm quite certain that that is what they intended, and specifically, a scene to watch in the movie you mention, Loafing, is the scene in which Andre is lit on fire in the black cloak, shouting: "I am the Dread Pirate Roberts. . . etc." Watch it, you'll see what I mean.
I don't think Strong Mad's nearly articulate enough to be particularly similar to Andre the Giant. Evil Egg 19:29, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Seemed worth noting

This doesn't really belong in the entry, but I think it's worthwhile to note that although there's evidence that Strong Mad bullies Strong Sad, on the few occaisions we've seen them left to their own devices together, they don't seem to get along poorly at all. In light of this, it seems likely that, rather than Strong Mad disliking Strong Sad, he just gets 'roped into' bullying him the same way he often gets dragged into Strong Bad's antics.

I concur.

[edit]  ???

I think he actualy said and breakin stuff in the charicter video

No, it's quite clearly "Umm", and there's nothing between those two words. No "and". --DorianGray 20:21, 9 February 2008 (UTC)


OK I was just checking before I had it edited just to have it edited back

[edit] Medieval

Could this be the medieval version of Strong Mad, or at least a distant relative? Maybe just inspiration. --Homfrog 19:52, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

It's pretty darn creepy. --User:UmIDontHaveAUsernameSoWhateverBye

Ha. That's pretty cool. It's unlikely, however. --HRWiki Greg

Hey, I don't mean to be a buzzkill or anything but that kinda stuff should be discussed at the forum. Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 01:46, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Mad's Head

The recent blog entry for SBCG4AP shows a PBTC animation of Strong Mad's head being decapitated, which seems to be the region in which his face lies. Would this be a notable mention in the Physical Statistics section, since it's making the first distinction between his "head" and his "body"? --ThomasO 20:09, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Noses

Strong Mad is one of the few characters in the HSR body of work that has a nose. I think there should be a separate page for characters with noses, references to noses, etc.

This is the best place to mention it, I thought. --HRWiki Greg 02:14, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

I don't think a page about noses is a good idea, if all you base it on are characters who seem to have a nose. Lack of nose is covered in Lack of Visible Body Parts, and most characters who are more human (including a nose) are covered in Clearly Human Characters. Strong Mad kinda falls in-between, because he got all the body parts, but they are arranged differently. Maybe a mention on his page is in order, if it's not mentioned yet.

[edit] Duplicated quotes?

The quote on the main picture and the one showing off his square shoulders are the same. I'm thinking (dangerous, I know) that the one under the main picture should be different. Though only one that comes to mind at this time is "I'M STRONG MAD!" Any other ideas? Guybrush20X6 02:16, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

12 days of thinking, best I've got is "That one big guy." from Army. Any objections? Guybrush20X6 00:45, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
"I'M STRONG MAD!" or "That one big guy." would work equally well, I think. e0uZ2kQ.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:06, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
I think for "That one big guy." to work best, the Cheat's would need to be "That one little guy." and I think "Meh" is just too iconic to change. Guybrush20X6 15:23, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
I came by the page and noticed the duplicated quote, and also thought "I'M STRONG MAD!" would be a good replacement before even seeing this conversation. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 15:27, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
