    "Breaking news m'kay!, A man by the name Logan Thirtyacre, changed my whole personality for no freaking reason as I went from a freaking incompetent yet also kind and friendly man to a freaking short-tempered, evil personified millionaire who extorts Mario for house payments yelling out: "Give me your house payment, Mario!", a jarring change that was criticized by many fans for how much of a departure it was from my old character, especially since it came with little/no buildup."
    "To make matters even worse, Logan Thirtyacre has never explained why my character changed drastically, which could be seen as absolutely distasteful and offensive to people that liked my old personality better!

    Mr. Goodman is a major antagonist in the web series SuperMarioLogan. During his early years, he was written as the cliché character with a lot of jobs (similar to Brooklyn T. Guy today) and the chief of police. However, ever since late 2016, his character has been taken in a new direction, with him now being a rich angry "landlord" who threatens Mario with his "house payment" after the episode "The Koopalings Part 2". He is also a news reporter in a news broadcast fans dub “Exposition TV”.

    Intentional Despicable Badman Qualities

    1. He became a sleazy and clearly corrupt character whose whole personality is that he is an intentionally over-the-top caricature of a greedy businessman, complete with some corrupt/morally questionable moments.
      • He mentioned once that he impregnates nannies and fires them, and also has other side comments implying a sexist view on women.
      • It is also heavily implied he is now an obscenely-powerful mob boss whose company is a front for a massive criminal organization and gets away with committing enough crimes to get him locked up for life or even executed because the police are extremely corrupt and take bribes like candy, and is also presumably smart enough to hide his operations from the FBI.
      • As shown in "Jeffy's Paper Shredder", he has become so immersed in his own evil that doing nice things physically hurts him.
      • Unlike other characters, Logan to this day outright refuses to explain why did he completely overhaul Goodman's personality from being friendly to evil.
    2. He isn't now all that funny sometimes, and like Jeffy, many of his frequent running gags, especially around 2017-18 have fallen victim to repetition.
      • One recurring running gag that began in 2016 involves Goodman going into long, angry swearing fits (mainly involving the word "Fuck"). Not only did this gag get old fast, but it doesn't help that Jeffy had a nearly identical running gag that began around the same time as well.
        • Once Goodman's black "Elephant Asshole" suit debuted, the trait was exaggerated further to the point that he dropped a swearing rant in every video he appeared in up until SuperLuigiLogan's demonetization in 2019.
      • Similarly, the gag of Goodman wanting Mario's "house payment" has also decidedly gotten stale over time, especially as the structure of the jokes seldom changes; Goodman tells Mario he is missing his "house payment", Mario cannot pay it, and Goodman threatens some form of extreme bodily harm/mutilation onto him. Unlike his swearing rampages, these jokes persist to this day.
      • Recent videos have also given Goodman an unnecessary hatred for Mario's hat for no reason and it is barely explained why he hates it apart from the fact that he gets tired of seeing it all the time whenever he wants to get his "house payments", with the surrounding jokes mostly coming off as forced and unfunny.
    3. He is notoriously greedy and has shown himself to go too over-the-top and ridiculous extremes to get even trace amounts of extra money, including changing his own birth name to cash in somebody else's check in "Jeffy's Shirt".
    4. He is also known to be overconfident; when Mario let him taste Chef Pee Pee's cooking in "The Bet", he didn't bother to taste Chef Pee Pee's ravioli and he only smelled it. This led him to be sure that he'd win the chef competition the two were attending. He then bet all of his money on that he'd win so that he'd double his money. To put a long story short: it didn't end the way he thought and what is worse is that he never learn his lesson when he was Bowser's chef.
    5. He has serious anger issues, and can also be very violent; like his frequent over-the-top threats of biting off Mario's nipples/balls and the time when he actually bit off Black Yoshi's nipples (though in the latter case, it is understandable as Black Yoshi did scam him). He is also a proud cannibal who kills people who don't make their "house payments" and rips off their balls and nipples to eat, and he sees no problem with it; on one occasion, he even taught fans how to make a dish out of testicles.
    6. Even though he is often greedy, humorous, and merely sadistic at times, he can have moments where he can be a little bit of a sadomasochist, which is played for laughs. As seen when Goodman punched his own testicles in front of Mario to make him realize what not paying his "house payments" is like, and seemed to enjoy making Mario feel sorry for him to get Mario to pay for Goodman. Even though his masochistic moments are much rarer than his sadistic moments, there were times when he'd harm himself to make his plans of action work as seen in "The Bet"; where he finds a puddle at Walmart and slipped over it so he can break his spine, which was done in order to sue Walmart and become rich again.
    7. He is also now extremely cold-hearted and selfish too, in the episode "The Movie Date!", Brooklyn T. Guy tries to lie to Goodman about there being an emergency, but Goodman just states that it is "not his problem", even if it's a lie, this shows Goodman tends to lack empathy.
    8. Not only is he now a jerk to Mario, but he also is a poor father figure; he abuses his son Richard so he can mold him into a suitable successor, for example at the ending of Mr. Goodman's Son, when Richard realizes that money doesn't buy happiness, Goodman is appalled and slaps his AirPods off for saying such a thing.
      • It's also possible that the reason Richard now exactly behaves like his father in his next appearances (for example, him yelling "Eww, poor!" constantly, which is the complete opposite of the monologue he said in Mr. Goodman's Son) is that Goodman forces him to act like him, which is extremely cruel.
      • He is even now worse than Benjamin, as he even demanded that Mario adopt Benjamin and only took him back because he didn't want to pay taxes.
    9. He's also now a very spoiled, self-centered, immature and abusive boss to his waiter, Chives, when he doesn't get what he wants and gets angry at him whenever it goes wrong as he gets even further flanderized into a self-centered manchild. Another example is how he acted way too immature in "Mr. Poorman" over thing being poor like ramen noodles that he childishly called worms for most of the time. He's even a bad boss to Mario when he harasses him as an intern in "Marvin The Intern".
    10. In "The Life of Goodman", he kidnaps Mario just for not paying the "house payment" and forces him to stay in Chive's room for a few days.
    11. He's shown to be hypocritical at the end of "Mr. Goodman's Clone!", where he gets angry at Mario for trying to kill him in exchange for a hundred grand, but then immediately afterward says he would have done the same thing to Mario.
    12. In ''Goodman's Wife'', he was a complete idiot for assuming that Mario was flirting with his wife which in reality his wife was flirting with him.
    13. In "Breaking Bad" he sells Mario's "mortgage" to a Mexican also the Mexican that Goodman brought over behaves the exact same way he does such as him cutting Mario's balls off if he doesn't have $10000.
    14. He endangered 75 African elephants just to make his business suit which is poaching.
    15. In "Junior's Cheeto Dinosaur", for some reason he has a stupid obsession with cheeto-shaped objects which doesn't make sense on why he thinks it is important.
    16. Since he hardly ever gets any comeuppance or karma, he can fairly be considered a Karma Houdini, which does not help his stigma from detractors.
    17. It's implied that he's not even Mario's landlord because Mario got his new house for free due to his insurance after the old house burned down that Goodman doesn't even own. There's no evidence that Mr. Goodman owns that company and it's highly likely that Mario had the insurance for many years before Mr. Goodman became rich and was flanderized. In "The House Fire", Brooklyn Guy (The Real One) was working with the company Mario pays for insurance. Then in "The New House", Does Bad Things Guy was filling in for his brother and he got Mario the new house for free since his insurance covered enough for a new home. In "Jeffy's Piggy Bank", he even has a key to Mario's house. Mario had the new house from 2016-present so Mr. Goodman was doing this for more than 6 years to more and was never punished for it.

    Goodman Qualities

    1. Before his character was rebooted, he was a less polarizing and more universally acclaimed character amongst fans.
    2. While he does have his critics, he as mentioned above, is still also well-received have an equally large number of fans who like his new personality and appreciate his satirical take on the corrupt multi-billionaire and eccentric mannerisms.
    3. He has a unique and witty way with words and is a fairly good comedian; his modern persona has provided many of SML's most memorable quotes/one liners and if not overdone, his angry rants can provide a great source of deadpan comedy.
      • While his swearing did get overdone for a time, his swearing does also fit his character perfectly, more so than Jeffy, which made his swearing rants seem a lot more natural (one example being "The Bet" as seen here).
      • Similarly, his "house payment" jokes have often been witty (ex: "Jeffy's Halloween" and "Scooter the Rapper").
      • During SML's "Family-Friendly" period from 2019-2021, Goodman's jokes became more clever and relied on using humor that wasn't just his swearing fits.
    4. Lance still does a great job at voicing him; his signature angry voice is still appropriately intense and fitting for his character, and his soft speaking voice when calm still remains pleasant and distinctive.
    5. He is still an entertaining news reporter like he was under his old characterization.
    6. He can sometimes seem wise and agreeable compared to some of the other characters, and despite his greed he is often shown to be one of the smarter/more sensible characters in the series. He also makes some good points sometimes (ex: "Jeffy's Broken Toy", where he points out you shouldn't believe everything you hear on TV, albeit in a twisted way).
    7. He is genuinely likable in episodes and still has his original personality in episodes such as "Chef Pee Pee Goes To Hollywood" where after Chef Pee Pee shows Goodman the blue waffle he made, Goodman says that it reminded him of his childhood and he lets Junior and Chef Pee Pee off the hook, which was nice for him. Likewise, he has a right to be mad at Junior and Chef Pee Pee for stealing his money.
    8. Like Brooklyn Guy, Mr. Goodman is often the only good part of bad SML videos, and is able to save them or at least make them more tolerable to watch. Notable examples include "Jeffy's Big Mess", "Don't Tell Goodman", "Jeffy's Recycles", "Jeffy's Broken Laptop", & "Jeffy's Halloween".
    9. In "Mr. Goodman's Father", it was revealed that Frank Goodman (Mr. Goodman's dad) hates him all because he bought him a gift card, and Frank acts like he doesn't care about his son. This could explain why Mr. Goodman acts the way he is.
      • Also, in "Black Yoshi's Black Friday" it's revealed how he hates Thanksgiving because his family only likes him for his money, which gets them sympathising with him.
    10. Despite the fact that his Kable10 counterpart is dead and Richard's Kable10 counterpart is the same as him, Kermit later have that villainous and greedy role of Goodman but is much more tolerable than him.


    • According to the SML Wiki, the possible reasons for why Goodman was flanderized were because of Donald Trump's election as president of the United States in 2016, and that Logan may have found the fact he's named Goodman funny because he actually does bad things.
