The Rapper Bob Arc is the second SMG4 story arc. Set after the events of the Waluigi Arc, the new arc centers around Bob Bobowski building up his rapping career. During it, he ends up pushing his friends aside and becomes ruthless and cruel to them, especially Fishy Boopkins.
Bob kicked Boopkins into a well, and his friends try to save him. Later, Bob returns to save Boopkins, under the pretense of Boopkins letting him into the castle during the Purge when no one else would. This episode comes through the trouble of saving Boopkins from the bottom of the well and is the start of the Rapper Bob Arc.
Bob invites his friends over and reveals he started his rapping career. He then manipulated his friends into "accidentally" burning his house so that Bob can gather a sob story to promote his rapper career.
Bob and his friends drift apart after he doesn't pay his friends, who helped him record something for his rap. He then dissed them and told Boopkins he didn't want him anymore.
This is when Tari and the others battle over a copy of Super Smash in the Ass brothers Ultimate. It's later revealed that Bob made fun of his fans. People battle for the last copy and a surprise guest helped Tari get the copy. This episode also had Bob later accidentally film himself making fun of his fans.
Heartbroken after he ruined Bob's concert, Boopkins went into a deep depression, believing Bob now hated him for it. SMG4 tried to cheer Boopkins up by suggesting that he watched some anime, but he refused because he was too sad to do so at this time.
In this episode, SMG4 was sad because of Boopkins, and his friends kept on moving around to find Boopkins and they did their best to help in that episode.
The Fall and Retirement of His Career
The second last episode in the Arc. Boopkins and his friends reveal what Bob has done with rap and his career went downhill after it was revealed. Bob was horrified that happened as expected and after he lost everything, he tried to reconnect with them, just for them to be angry at him for his Betrayal, except for Boopkins, who instead showed how disappointed he was.
The Finale: SMG4 Christmas 2018: The Most Important Thing
In the finale of the arc, Bob tries to redeem himself to his friends with gold statues of themselves but they refused to acknowledge him, as mere gold statues would not be enough to repair the betrayal.
Dejected, Bob promised to never go to them again and after a lonely journey, came upon Waluigi, who used his powers to open his eyes. Deciding that friends were what he wanted, Bob chose a mall where he knew his friends would be and performed one last rap before announcing his retirement. Surprised but pleased with Bob's decision, they all visited him with a gift of a photo of them with him taped to it, signifying that they were friends once again. Happy (and moved at the same time), Bob cries (while trying to hide his emotions by saying that his eyes are just pissing), while everyone opened their Christmas presents. Additionally, Boopkin's and Bob's friendship is finally restored, and everything went back to normal, marking the end of the arc.

- This is the only arc:
- To not introduce an original character.
- In which the main antagonist (Bob) does not use or rely on a specific tool in order to fit their desires. Waluigi uses his Staff of Rejection in The Waluigi Arc, Francis uses Axol's Inkweaver in The Anime Arc, SMG3 uses Susan's remote in The YouTube Arc and SMG0 uses its power to kill the avatars in Genesis Arc.
- This is the most light-hearted arc on SMG4's channel, as it doesn’t have any death or supposed death unlike the other arcs, it’s more so just a school lesson showing people friendship, and is more sad than dark. The second being The Waluigi Arc, the third being The YouTube Arc, the fourth being The Anime Arc, and the fith/darkest arc being the Genesis Arc .
- When SMG4: The Mario Concert was uploaded, a separate music video of Darkest Hour was uploaded to the channel shortly afterward.
