Virus Character Variations
From Homestar Runner Wiki
The Virus has distorted many characters.
| Virus Homestar Runner|
He has the body of The Homestar Runner and the head of the current version. Instead of walking, he floats around and leaves blurred trails behind him, similar to the onion-skin effect in Flash. His head can change to the older sixth design, and can even fall off and still be entirely operational.

| Virus Strong Bad|
His head is off-center, his mask sits partially off his head, and he has only one very large leg. He quotes a line directly from The Reddest Radish in his old voice.
| Virus Strong Bad|
This version of Strong Bad has a giant misaligned head, a tiny face, a dislocated mouth and Marzipan's hair. He also has a giant right arm and glove. He quotes a line directly from The Luau in his old voice, and a duck from Duck Guardian appears and explodes in his mouth while he's talking.

| Virus The Cheat|
While floating through space, The Cheat rotates through several different variants: Awexome Cross The Cheat, his form in The Reddest Radish, a very pixellated version of him, a Cheat X-ing sign, a drawn version, and a Powered by The Cheat-style version with inverted colors.
| Virus Bubs|
Complete with anaglyphic legs, a broken JPEG from Mozilla in place of his mouth, and an overly-large arm that flails around as in Dancin' Bubs. He uses one of Homestar's legs to shoot the Compy 386, thus defeating the Virus.
(Note: The broken JPEG's alternate text reads "TH", the same letters Bubs wears on his chest when disguised as The Thnikkaman.)
| Virus Marzipan|
Marzipan turns into an ASCII art rendering of herself, and her voice becomes badly distorted and unintelligible. The letters in the ASCII art corespond to the part of Marzipan's body (E for eye, H for hair, etc.)
| Virus Strong Mad|
Strong Mad turns into his picture from the Yearbook Character Page, and his description from that page appears overhead as well. As he wobbles away, he makes the same noise that Homsar makes when he walks.

| Virus Strong Sad|
Strong Sad's head is replaced with his emoticons from Strong Sad's Lament, and his body walks in place before he turns into his character card.

| Virus Coach Z|
In an Easter Egg, there is a picture of an upside down Coach Z with his arms and legs wrapped around a white space in the shape of The King of Town's head. This image is from Where's The Cheat?, when Coach Z attacked The King of Town over a misunderstanding involving The Cheat and a grill.
| Virus The Ugly One|
The Ugly One appears out of thin air with a stretched mouth, slightly misquoting crazy cartoon before her arm extends across the screen to slap The King of Town nine times.
| Virus Rather Dashing|
A silhouette of Rather Dashing and a colon fly by in the foreground. It is a reference to a glitch in the game Pitfall, where Pitfall Harry will be silhouetted, and fly across the top of the screen.
