I like corn.

—Rob's radio

Rob the Scarecrow is a minor character in the SMG4 series.

He first appeared in SMG4: 🌽🌽🌽🌽𝓒𝓸𝓻𝓷🌽🌽🌽🌽. His name was given by Bob after he implied he looks like him, because of this, he acts as a doppelganger counterpart to Bob. Later, he was recruited as a member of the SMG3's Gang and became one of the seven former secondary antagonists of The YouTube Arc.


Initially thought to be a corn-obsessed scarecrow, it was revealed that a radio was implemented to him by Steve to speak with predetermined lines about corn. Steve doesn't want to give Rob any voice lines not related to corn. However, as of SMG4: I Can't Believe It's Not SMG4!, it is revealed that Rob has limited control over what he says, and he is shown to be obsessed with corn in SMG4: Deleted. He seemed to be unable to say anything that doesn't have the word "corn" in it, as shown in SMG4: Mario VS Youtube with "I'm corning for the gaming room." This was proven false in SMG4: Deleted when he says "Are you really contesting me in my domain?", meaning that Steve either gave Rob other voice lines that don't have to do with corn or the concept that Rob's voice comes from a radio with limited voice lines was abandoned.

Bob then appears coming out of a portal dropping onto Rob. After Bob hits him with corn, Rob questions, "Are you really contesting me in my domain?" Rob then creates a mech-like form made entirely made of corn. This causes Mario and Luigi to leave, erasing Bob from existence.
