Homestar Run Go
Homestar runs onto the battlefield
Neutral Special - Frank Bennedetto
Homestar calls for Frank to shoot popcorn for a few, then stop for another few. Homestar and his allies are able to carry and throw him around. A strong attack decommisions the soldier, benching him for 10 seconds. There can be only one at a time, of course.
Frank Bennedetto is one of the "soldiers" in the Homestarmy, an army ran by colonel (or as he pronounces it, co-lo-nel) Homestar. In the puppet short Labor Dabor, Frank Bennedetto spits out popcorn everywhere, which Homestar and The Cheat start to eat. In the sbemail army, Strong Bad kicks him out of Strong Badia.
Side Special - Mountain Dew
Homestar pours a bottle of Mountain Dew out. Of course it can be a slip trap, but it can also disable traps temporarily and have opponents be sluggish with immense lag in attacks. Dew can also be applied in the air for downward projectiles. You can serve Dew twice at a time, or you can hold B to use both your servings, increasing the effects explained. You'll get back your soda in 15 seconds.
In the sbemail anything, the running gag of Homestar pouring a bottle of Mountain Dew on the Compy ("to make a wet computer out of Strong Bad's computer") begins. This gets referred to multiple other times in the series.
Up Special - Make-Plastic Goldfish
Homestar tends to his dream job with this horizontal recovery that knocks away opponents in front. Press B to paint the clouds with your oversized novelty toothbrush. The clouds snag opponents and deal damage to them. Press A to drop off the fish, or jump off the fish for vertical help. Don't hit the walls while on the fishy.
In the sbemail from work, Homestar describes his dream job as "I'd be the guy that flies around on that big plastic goldfish, painting the clouds with an oversized novelty toothbrush!"
Down Special - Bread Singalongs
Homestar gets out some bread for his sing-along. You can move around while he's singing, and he has super armor. After the random bit of song, he stays still, allowing you to do one of two things. You can throw the bread to do some breaddy damage (press A), or eat the bread to recover some breaddy health (press B). You can share bread with teammates. Wait 30 seconds for your next singalong.
As a reflection on his stupidity, a running joke in the sbemail origins features Homestar performing Bread Singalongs by The Stick.
Final Smash - Pom Pom, Too
Homestar calls for Pom Pom who follows Homestar around for 15 seconds. Anyone who's in front of him gets a whoopin'. If everyone's been KO'd, Pom Pom leaves.
Pom Pom is Homestar's friend/doge, who helps Homestar out of tight spots. Pom Pom's combo comes from his martial arts background, and specifically the sbemail pom pom, where he beats up a blindfolded Strong Bad trying to pop him (because some child emailed him to do so). The move's name comes from an old Homestar Runner book titled "Pom Pom, Too".
Up Taunt: *dances* "Butt dance, butt dance!"
Side Taunt: "Evewybody woves the me. I'm a tewiffic athlete"
Down Taunt: "Sewiously!"
Victory Option #1. "Homestar Runner's team wins!"
Victory Option #2. "Company...GO!" *marches*
Victory Option #3. (if Pom Pom gets his last KO) "All right, seriously, Pom Pom. Gimme the golbol!" *Pom Pom bubbles* "Yeah, that's great. But I still won. I sportsmanliked everybody! Now gimme the golbol!" *Pom Pom bubbles*
Victory Option #4. (vs. Strong Bad) "Well, well, Strong Bad. Looks like you finally got a taste of your own medicine. A taste of your own potion. A taste of your own elixir! A taste of your own—" *gets beaned by a toy thrown by The Cheat*
Failure/Clap: *Homestar cries.*
Homestar Runner is the main protagonist of the Homestar Runner body of work, being described as a terrific athlete and fast runner. His intelligence is not his strongest point, having a speech tic (where he has "twouble with [his] aw's") and short term memory issues, usually not fully grasping the world around him. He also falsely believes he and Strong Bad are friends.
