Gang Members Edit
From Left to Right, Back to Front Row:
- Salad Fingers is the protagonist of the Salad Fingers series by David Firth, which began in 2004. The Salad Fingers series, which chronicles the life of the titular character, is one of premier surreal series on Newgrounds. In addition to appearing in his own series, which has a dozen awards and over 12 million views, Salad Fingers has been widely featured in a number of parodies and tributes. Although the series was at its most popular in 2004, when five of the ten episodes and several of the more popular parodies, such as Banana Fingers and Zalad FingerZ, were created, Salad Fingers was still popular enough in 2007 to be one of the ten characters to be initially featured in Newgrounds Rumble.
- BlockHead is the main character of the comedic TheSwain's Blockhead series, which ran from 2005 to 2009. Blockhead is portrayed as a clueless imbecile, with little sense of reality. His simple nature is mirrored by how simply he is drawn in comparison to the world he lives in. Although only one entry in the series has over half a million views, the series has been a critical hit, with over thirty awards, including two Review Crew Picks and five Weekly Users' Choice Awards. Blockhead has also appeared in a variety of other submissions. In PALADIN: the Game by JAZZA, he is an unlockable character, along with Pico

The Alien Hominid himself is portrayed as a small, deadly fighter who is nonetheless capable of making friends.
