Buckets of Blood Guy is a minor character in Shortpacked! and Dumbing of Age. He hasn't been given a formal name yet, which is probably just as well.


"Buckets of Blood Guy"
First Appearance: Shortpacked! 6 June 2005

BoBG is a hardcore Transformers fan and one of the Shortpacked toy store's seemingly endless parade of creepy, obsessive customers.

BoBG firmly believes that children's cartoons should stop catering to children and start catering to, well, him by piling on ultra-explicit, over-the-top violence and sexual content. At one point, he was considering kickstarting a crossover between My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Saw III, but these days, he's busy writing gruesome superhero mutilations for DC's Future's End series.


  • BoBG's skin tone has become increasingly pale over time, and is currently almost pure white. This might just be a refinement of his character design... or the end effect of too many hours cooped up writing angry letters to Hasbro and not enough time in the sun.
  • Based on some of his comments, BoBG may identify as a Libertarian.

Dumbing of AgeEdit

First Appearance: Dumbing of Age 19 May 2011

A slightly younger (but no less creepy) BoBG is currently enrolled as an undergrad at IU, and is one of Amber O'Malley's Computer Science classmates.


  • According to David Willis, BoBG's reappearance in DoA was more of a question of convenience. "This comic’s “script,” such as it was, called for The Creepiest-Looking Guy Ever. I realized that any attempt at this would just be reinventing the wheel, so I just whole-hog borrowed him."
