Character: Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

This article is about the character. For the user, see User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc.


Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (full name Gfdgsgxgzgdrc J. Garbles, also known as Gfd) is an incredibly random citizen of Free Country, USA. He is the cousin of Honstlar and the half-half-cousin of Homsar. He usually wears a green shirt with a yellow G on it and a bowler hat similar to Homsar's. His appearance seems to be a combination of many characters. His body and legs look like Homestar Runner's, his skin is coloured similarily to Bubs's head, he has Strong Bad's head and mouth shape, Bubs's teeth, and Pom Pom's eyes. His shirt is the same color as Coach Z's body, his hat is the same colors as Coach Z's hat, his "G" is the same color as The Cheat, and the soles of his feet are the same color as Bubs's body. Like many other characters, he lacks visible arms, but can still handle things as though he does. He talks in an exaggerated voice similar to Homsar or Dooble, and when he talks, his mouth "squishes" in a similar manner to Strong Bad. His hat jumps slightly when he speaks, and he will flick his head in the opposite direction on certain syllables, a habit he shares with Homestar Runner. He weighs 19 pounds or tons, as revealed in the toon Waddlemania.

For the most part, Gfd is a comic relief character, and as a result, he is usually quite unintelligent, forgetful, and untalented. He is exceptionally bad at math, not even able to answer simple equations. He is not very strong or athletic either, as Honstlar is able to beat him in wrestling without even doing anything. Sometimes, he becomes incredibly smart for a brief moment without explanation, usually for comedy (for example, explaining the results of a paradox in Helmet Quest). He actually seems naturally talented, but his low intelligence keeps him from realizing his potential. If someone were to ask Gfd to make a sandwich, for instance, he would somehow accidentally end up becoming ruler of a small country instead— and do so extremely well. The most important part of his personality, however, is his randomness. Like Homsar, his randomness can break the laws of physics. Unlike Homsar and Senor Cardgage, he is capable of speaking normally; in fact, the majority of his lines are completely ordinary. However, he occasionally says something unconventional, but still relevant to the situation. He also often phrases his sentences strangely. He uses the website's linguistic humor more than any other character, using running gags such as thyme, b/w, and style in nearly every sentence.

In his early appearances, he had a love of food (pizza in particular), but in recent appearances, he seems to enjoy non-edible food items the most. Over the years, this has been exaggerated to the point where his fondness of non-edible food is almost the center of his personality. His eating skills surpass The King of Town's, and he can even eat non-physical concepts. (He has referred to himself as an "eating wizard" in Helmet Quest 2 after eating $500 worth of sugar in one gulp.) Food is often the highest priority for him, even if he's in a dangerous or important situation. His catch phrases are "Is this [blank] edible?" and "Goodness gravy!". He also frequently talks about sentient donut glaze, a running gag originating in the Broternal Helmet Theater G000 episode "Panda Bractice: The Complete Saga".

His ethics are questionable, as he has been known to rob banks, steal property, break in to places, and use other peoples' credit cards. However, he is not too concerned about being caught, sometimes casually admitting his crimes when the subject comes up in conversation. He is also egotistical, frequently trying to name things after himself (usually by putting "Gfd is Great" in the name). His crimes and negative aspects are usually brought up for the humor of the cartoon.

He is good friends with Homsar and his fellow members of the Broternal Order of Different Helmets. Everyone seems to simultaneously like and dislike him. He has gone on many adventures with the Broternal Order of Different Helmets, including saving the world several times and finding magical hats. He is on their wrestling team as "The Tongue Twister" (due to his long name), and he has special powers as a member of the Power Helmets, "Zeo Ranger G". Gfd keeps many useless items in his bowler hat, including objects larger than the bowler hat itself. In Christmas What?, he reveals that he has 7,256 items in his hat (not including nonexistent items or objects that can only be seen in other dimensions), according to a list he had in his hat. In early cartoons, Gfd is shown to have talents for drawing, animating, and coding. However, this seems to have since been abandoned. He claims to be related to Fhqwhgads, but this seems to be a blatant lie. He has occasionally been a director, directing Bubs's food truck/online streaming service commercial in Review Revue, and later the Caleb Rentpayer reboot in Arsene the Asinine. He is also an actor, as he portrays Dangergsgxgzgdrc Johnson in the Dangeresque film series.

GFDGSGXGZGDRC: Is— is it recording?

STRONG SAD: I think so. You see, when I pressed the "record" button here, {waves his hand in front of the camera} it—

GFDGSGXGZGDRC: {interrupting} Hello, peoples of Free Country USA! I am Gfdgsg... Gfdgsgxxg... {stuttering} Gfdgsgxgzgdrc? {sighs} You can just call me G-F-D. Or maybe, "that guy with the name that nobody can pronounce and takes really long to say unless you say it really quickly but if you are saying his name really quickly then you probably aren't pronouncing it right". Wait. Is that longer? {thinks for a moment} It doesn't really matter. So anyways, onto myself. I like drawing, {as he says this, he holds up a paper, draws, and holds up a majestic self-portrait} and animating, and pizza, and things, and other things, and not things. Also, I'm pretty much the smartererest guy ever. I mean, I know, like... three. And even three minus! I can... jump, and...

STRONG SAD: I think we're out of film.

GFDGSGXGZGDRC: {simultaneously} ...and walk... I can do a little dance...
