Homestar Runner

Homestar Runner is the indomitable hero of

Homestar is the namesake of this incredible website and a true hero. He's an armless idiot with a charming speech impediment, but he is the sweetest, most random, funniest guy on the entire internet (and people say he's a great athlete!). Constantly at battle with his peers, his only real, consistent friend is Pom-Pom (who, incidentally, doesn't even speak), and finds himself butting heads regularly with Strong Bad. Dauntless, however, Homestar is always completely unaffected to Strong Bad's verbal abuse and social ostracization. He's blissfully ignorant, oblivious to reality and all that that implies. He and his girlfriend, Marzipan, are one hot item when she says so, and he often leaves amusing messages on her answering machine. It's actually difficult to try and analyze this kind of character, since his charm is his shallowness and random comedy. Something you have to experience for yourself if you really want to appreciate it, for sure.

Homestar Runner is voiced by Matt Chapman (Thanks, TPK!), who, incidentally, because of his work as Homestar, is one of my real (meaning not animated) heroes.

Homestar's lover is the tree-hugging, tofu-eating, animal-saving, guitar-playing hippy, Marzipan. Their on-again, off-again relationship is part of the most amusing antics on the website.
Homestar's major nemesis is Strong Bad, even though he would hardly ever know it.
