There are many radical puppets are found in Dave Strider's house. These puppets are the property of Dave's Bro and are commonly acknowledged as being totally awesome. Dave's brother collects both real marionettes as well as paintings of the wooden marvels. Both the actual puppets and those in the paintings dress only in the finest of gangster clothing and pimpin' threads. Early in the game, Dave refers to the puppets as his Bro's 'boys' and often stops to pay his respects to their unquestionable coolness. However, during a Pesterchum chat with Rose, he mentions that they are starting to creep him out, especially his Bro's favorite of the bunch, Lil Cal. After exposure to one of Bro's more ironic websites, Dave coolly starts to Flip the Fuck Out.
