|“||I am the Ninja, I am Randy Cunningham!||”|
–Randy, Main Theme
Randy Cunningham is an average high-schooler who tries to fit in and be cool. There are many times where he tries doing risky things that could possibly get him into a lot of trouble, like busting into Bash's party (House of 1,000 Boogers), spitting in a volcano (Monster Dump), and using the ninja powers to fix a science project (Dawn of the Driscoll). Often he forgets that his actions have consequences, which can accidentally or purposely result in major problems for himself and the people around him. As time goes on, though, he realizes when the situation is his fault, and takes responsibility to fix it as much as possible. He always struggles to do what's right over his own desires, but he more often then not goes with the former. His sense of responsibility and sacrifice has increased throughout the series.
Though he is not very book-smart, Randy is very quick-witted and has some inteligence in dealing with ninja situations, creating techniques, and facing normal life situations. Randy is also very good at riddles and puzzles as shown in The Tale of the Golden Doctors Note. Randy is also extremely skilled at games, much better than Howard is as seen in Weinerman Up. He is much less emotional than Howard, and rarely holds a grudge against anyone because he doesn't usually take things personally.
He can be impatient, insensitive, and a bit bossy, like his attitude with the Nomicon, but is a loyal friend and has a heart of a hero, the perfect ideals of a ninja. He also keeps his promises, for example, when Howard ask him to promise to stay in the locker for 10 seconds and he did--even though Howard farts and closes the locker door. Howard can be troublesome and rude, but fortunately Randy is usually forgiving with Howard's actions. He can treat Howard unfairly or uncaringly at times, like saying Howard didn't have any understanding of having a duty, but he does his best to make it up, and works hard at balancing their friendship and his job as the ninja. Despite his negative qualities, Randy proves to be very valiant and upholds high morals, as seen in Ninja Camp when he refused to fight the other students and ran back to help a student get out of one of Mac Antfee's courses. In The Ninja Identity / The Ninja Supremacy, after getting mind-wiped, Randy is shown to dislike Howard's bullying towards a robot while being a temporary ninja.
When Randy gained the mask and became the ninja, he thought it was butt-kicking and hitting, but discovers it is very hard fighting against robots and monsters, and soon gets used to it. He becomes quite serious with the job, which strains and sometimes nearly breaks his friendship with Howard who just wants him to hang out with him all the time and doing thing his way. Ever since he became the ninja, he becomes more mature bit by bit in each episode with the proverbs he learns and understands from the Nomicon. It can take him awhile to figure out how to de-stank a monster or defeat a monster, but he claims and shows that he is doing his best to protect his school. In Ninja Camp Randy loses confidence and has doubts about being the right guy to be the ninja, but after encountering Antfee, he realizes that the Nomicon chose him because of his nobility and well-meaning heart.Randy is seen to taunt his enemies and make sarcastic comments toward them. It is unknown what Randy's intentions are, but on several occasions he is seen angering the enemy in some way or maybe to make them more aggressive, therefore making more mistakes because robots make by Viceroy have emotion. He prefers to be fair even toward his enemies, unlike Howard, who bullies them while being the temporary ninja.
It's shown that he has a clean mind, like in Got Stank, when he closes his eyes and admits to not wanting to see Bucky naked. Randy will save others whenever they're in danger, and even pay cost of being the Ninja over something like popularity, sometimes much to Howard's chargin. He willingly hits himself to hurt the Tengu that possessed Howard so that he won't be physically harming Howard's body. in the episode, McFear Factor, it is revealed that he posesses the fear alektorophobia, which is a fear of chickens and roosters. This causes Randy to feel uneasiness, anxiety, and fear when the latter is around, but he is willing to temporarily work with his fear to get the job done. His bravery is also apparent in Night of the Living McFizzles, when he is afraid, but manages to work his way out of it.
The Ninja Mask is what Randy puts on to unleash the Ninja Suit, which possess all the power that Randy uses to defeat robots and stanked students, and the arsenal and gear he takes out of it. He usually puts the Ninja Mask in his backpack, or the pockets on his jacket or jeans, or on one occasion, a speedo so that use he could use it when it is needed or there's an emergency.In some cases,Howard will hold it for him which forces him to find Howard before he could use it.
McFist Industries' Products
As Randy states, "We are McFist men from head to toe." Randy might be such a big fan of the products either because it's just popular, or that he finds that there's something good about it. In McFists of Fury he stated that as the ninja he is boycotting the merchandise but as Randy, he'll still be first in line to buy it.
Grave Puncher Series
Randy is a big fan of Grave Puncher. He has posters of it covering some of the walls in his room. He and Howard completed the first three games together and were working on the fourth. They tried to get out of school to get the fifth, and snuck out of Howard's room to go watch Grave Puncher: The Movie after making some dummies to fool Heidi.In recent episode,nothing about grave puncher came up.
English Language Arts
Not much is known about his relationship to writing. The only time he is seen in ELA is in Last Stall on the Left, where he gets a B for his teared up piece of paper because Mr. Bannister (the English teacher) believed Randy was using it as a metaphor.
ScienceRandy is said to be failing science in the episode Attack of the Killer Potatoes. He seems to be getting bad grades in science for all the different projects they do. Mrs. Driscoll, his science teacher, also sees him as a naughty student which may lower his effort grade. He does not actually seem to have a hard time with science, but he's probably just too lazy to work hard for a good grade.
Randy does not like gym, considering Coach Green sets up unusual and dangerous activities for the students to partake in.
Randy does not do very well in Spanish, considering the only words he knows are foods such as: nacho, taco, quesidilla, salsa, holais, jabenero, burrito, and tortilla. He DOES know a few common Spanish words such as supremo (supreme), agua (water), roja (red), and grande (grand). He learns his spanish from Miguel, a Taco Cart manager.
Nothing is known about Randy's grades in Home Ec, but he and Howard seem to enjoy the class, getting excited that this class earned them the achievement of Freshmen Class Vecta in Nukid on the Block.
Randy hasn't been seen in math class as of yet, but his math book is usually used to cover up the NinjaNomicon. However, although it is known Randy usually gets low grades in most--if not all--of his classes, he shows a lot of skill in math, using complex formulas and equations to defend Howard, albiet backfiring, in Escape from Detention Island. He also mentions freshening up his mathematic skills before school starts in his essay in Last Stall on the Left. It can be assumed he is pretty knowledgable in Mathematics despite not putting effort in any of his classes.
Randy hasn't been seen in this class, but mentions in McFists of Fury that he's getting a D in it. In The Ninja Identity and The Ninja Supremacy, Randy and Howard are getting ready to present their history report about the Norrisville Van Dam. Randy is actually very prepared for the report, unlike Howard.
Opinions for him
Randy finds himself bored in class and is usually happy to see a rampaging attack by a stanked student or a robot attack by Viceroy to interrupt the class. He is seen to enjoy the social parts and field trips the most.
Toward Being the Ninja
Randy thought of it as awesome in the beginning, but quickly learns that it isn't an easy task. For Randy it is hard for him to still be friends with Howard because of his task. He still enjoys being the Ninja, although occasionally having doubts that he's doing a good job.
Randy generally dislikes bullying. He would never partake in it himself, feeling awful about having to fight Bucky in Got Stank. After realizing that bummed feelings cause students to be stanked in So U Think U Can Stank, he probably makes sure not to treat students badly. He called Bash a jerk for kicking him and Howard off of Shangri Lunch in Der Monster Klub, and later told the stanked Klub that getting revenge on people who mistreated them just makes them bullies themselves. He also detests the way Bash Johnson was treating the Robo-Apes in Raiders of the Lost Nomicon, so as revenge for Bash knocking papers out of one of the Robo-Ape's hand, Randy as the Ninja knocks a plate of cookies out of Bash's hands when he was making his escape from The Sorcerer's Red Stank.
Randy doesn't seem to think much about romance, probably in part due to being busy as a best friend, a student, and the Ninja. In Sorcerer in Love, he pretends to be concerned that he and Howard didn't have dates, which ends with them laughing about it. Sometimes, he even finds it horrific. In Stank'd to the Future, when Dickie and Miss Zingwald kissed, Randy shows disgust and leaves. Mrs. Driscoll's love towards the bones of Mr. Discroll also creeps him out. On occasions, he has flirted with other girls, like Theresa and Debbie in Night of the Living McFizzles, and girls he passed by in Viva El Nomicon. However, Randy has shown interest in a particular girl once in a while. During Socerer in Love, he was attracted to Amanda because of her beauty. Later, though, he discovers she's the Sorceress and that she was using magic to control the boys of the school.
Sometimes, whenever Theresa is around, Randy shows signs of having feelings for her, like in Der Monster Klub and The Ninja Identity. He thinks she's attractive and good-smelling, and rarely treats her badly. It's unknown if he realizes that Theresa likes him back. So far, he hasn't done anything with his attraction towards her.
When talking, Randy uses a lot of supposed slang (made up for the show), some of which include wonk, what the juice, bruce, the cheese, shnasty, etc. Randy often uses the phrase "What the Juice" in confusion or shock of something. Randy identifies cheese and bruce with positive things and categorizes wonk and shnasty with negative things. Randy claims for Bash to be a schoob. Also as a Ninja, Randy has a habit of saying Ninja in front of every action he does, like "Ninja Sprint!", "Ninja Stop!", "Ninja Tengu Fireball", and "Ninja Sliding Table Kick!" It is unknown if Randy has to say this to do these actions or it is just a habit he developed in the first few episodes.
For breakfast he eats McFistios and for lunch he eats the cafeteria food at Norrisville High. He is seen to be less passionate about food than Howard, which probably explains why he is slimmer. In Bash Johnson: 11th Grade Ninja, he is excited to eat gravy fries, but is extremely disappointed that Howard ate his basket throughout the whole episode. He also is angry when Howard ate his lunch at the beginning of Enter the Nomicon.
McFist Industries Merchandise
He often uses McFist's products from McIndustries like McKicks, McTighties, McTops, McSkinnies, McHoodies and even McFistios. He enjoys his merchandise, but feels awkward when it comes to meeting McFist, his enemy as the Ninja, in person as shown in House of 1,000 Boogers.
Randy is always (except as ninja) seen wearing a McTop with a white line that curls up to form the same symbol which is found on the cover of the NinjaNomicon and the Ninja Suit. He also has a dark slate gray McHoodie that has wavy sleeves and pockets. He wears black McSkinnies that fit very well with the rest of his outfit. He is seen wearing purple zip-up McKicks.
Randy wears the typical ninja suit in which is used generation after generation. The suit seemed to have adjusted to his physical thin-like shape, because when Mac Antfee used it, it was bigger since Antfee was fatter. Randy admits that he really likes the scarf, and is insulted whenever anyone makes fun of it. Randy is probably wearing his civilian attire, or whatever he was wearing previously, under the Ninja suit, like a second layer. The only thing that can be seen of Randy is his eyes.
Randy is very slim-built in comparison to his best friend Howard. Randy is also somewhat taller. He has natural purple hair and blue eyes. Comparing his appearances without a shirt in Got Stank and Ninja Camp, he seems to have gained some muscle, probably because of his ninja duties. His arms and thigh are slightly smaller than his hand and legs respectively. He is shown to be quite strong, as seen in House of 1,000 Boogers, when he hits Howard hard enough to give him a bash mark.
RelationshipsNinjaNomicon tells Randy that the ninja shouldn't have a friend, Randy ignores it and stays dedicated to their friendship. However, his ninja duties and friend duties prove to be challenging for Randy, and many times this has resulted in major conflicts between them, like in 30 Seconds to Math, when he keeps on (NNS) Ninja No-Showing, abandoning Howard to fight the Robo-Apes. The two friends do have some fights, but no matter what the condition is, they often forgive each other.
Randy can be quite uncaring and rude to Howard, like in Monster Drill when he laughs at Howard, in Nukid on the Block when he accuses Howard of not having any idea about having a duty, and in Evil Spirit Week, when he got angry at Howard and didn't take him seriously when Howard kept saying something was wrong with him. He also tends to underestimate Howard and his abilities, which can sometimes result in more trouble for both or one of them, like in Escape from Detention Island. Once Randy comes to terms with his mistakes, however, he works hard to make it up to Howard and mend any problems between them. Howard also causes his fair share of their problems, which Randy rarely doesn't forgive. It is shown that Randy cares for his best friend deeply, risking his life in one occasion (Ninja Camp) and throwing the Ninja Mask into a bonfire in order to save Howard from the Tengu (Evil Spirit Week). Throughout all of the craziness in high school, Randy appreciates Howard's loyalty and companionship.McFists of Fury he found out that his role model was actually responsible for the robots that tried to get rid of the Ninja. He did not expose McFists' dark secret to the public, possibly fearing that no one would believe him. He said that as the ninja he is boycotting buying McFist's products, but as Randy Cunningham he will still be first in line to get them. Randy seems to be nervous when meeting McFist out of his Ninja attire and often strings large suspicious sentences together if he has to talk to him, despite the fact that he still thinks that McFist's stuff is cool.
Viceroy is the one responsible for making the robots that attack the ninja. Despite that fact, Randy helps Viceroy on occasion and the other way around. In Monster Dump, he saved Viceroy's pet Nicholas in exchange for Viceroy to take a vacation from helping McFist try to destroy him. In Dawn of the Driscoll, Randy used Viceroy to help him defeat Jerry Driscoll before he could destroy the world. Randy was somewhat annoyed that Howard dressed up as Willem Viceroy instead of dressing up as the front half of a cow, which Viceroy found amusing. Despite their times together, Randy has never interacted with Viceroy as "Randy Cunningham" and instead only knows him as the Norrisville Ninja. Ocassionally they can be allies, but they are mostly antagonistic towards each other.NinjaNomicon explained it to him in So U Think U Can Stank. The only relationship Randy really has with the Sorcerer is being his arch-enemy. He has encountered his Stank many times, and destanked many monsters created by it. They finally meet face-to-face (but not in person) in Raiders of the Lost Nomicon. The Sorcerer strongly resents the Ninja for keeping him trapped in his prison, but doesn't know his secret identity. When he fights out he has to fight the Sorcerer in the final battle, Randy is both terrified and excited.
Heidi is Randy's best friend's sister. He gets upset when she didn't remember his name properly after he and Howard agreed to judge the talent show in So U Think U Can Stank. He stated that he has known her his entire life. He probably noticed that it is best if she doesn't notice him, since if she found out that he is the Ninja she would most likely reveal that on her show, like in Gossip Boy when Howard almost told her that Randy was the Ninja. He still is willing to help her, like in the episode 30 Seconds to Math, when he goes to retrieve her guitar from the Robo-Apes instead of staying to play with Howard. Heidi attempts to keep Randy and Howard inside the house during Grave Puncher: The Movie! and later gets the blame when trying to explain the situation. Feeling guilt, Randy takes the blame on Howard and himself, earning respect for himself from Heidi, but she still manages to deliberately mispronounce his name, much to his annoyance.
Randy, who rarely cares about romance, seems to have a slight crush on Theresa whenever she's around. He treats her with kindness and respect. In So U Think U Can Stank, Randy destanked Theresa, assuring her that everything was going to be alright afterwards. Theresa also appears to have feelings for Randy, shown in Night of the Living McFizzles and Der Monster Klub.
In the episode The Tale of the Golden Doctor's Note, Randy has sympathy for Julian and teams up with him to get the note. Randy has shown no ill-will towards Julian, so it is unclear whether or not they are friends. They seem to have bonded in Der Monster Klub.
Though Randy tricked Bucky with word play in Monster Dump and has called him a "Brown-Noser" in Attack of the Killer Potatoes, Randy is actually really nice toward him, considering the Ninja constantly has to save the little band geek. However, Bucky doesn't seem to really care too much about Randy. Bucky seems to think that Randy is too immature and irresponsible, as shown in his reaction to being paired up with him in Monster Dump.
Flute Girl does not think that Randy and Howard are very smart, and Randy finds Flute Girl's know-it-all personality annoying sometimes. Flute Girl seems to regard Randy and Howard as idiots, as shown in Monster Dump and Nukid on the Block. But she thanks Randy a lot as the Ninja (not knowing his identity).
In Viva El Nomicon, she was shown to be annoyed by the fact that Randy and Howard didn't know proper Spanish during class. Randy thinks Debbie was being ridiculous, although she proves to be right. Randy, as the ninja, asks for her help when he needed to defeat a Mexican Death Bear, which was attacking the school. In Night of the Living McFizzles, Debbie challenges Randy's courage. Because he was nervous of what she and Theresa would think of him, Randy lies and acts as if he hadn't been afraid. She easily sees that he's just trying to impress them, but she relunctantly asks him to walk them home, and holds his hand when she hears something scary.
Altough finding it funny on some occasions, Randy finds Stevens and his sad-trombone melody to be extremely annoying and dislikes him.
Randy is not fond of Bash, calling him a shoob for how he treats everyone. He was upset when he threw Howard and him from Shangri Lunch in Der Monster Klub. He's even more enraged when Bash lies about being the Ninja and gets attention from the entire school, but still saves him from danger in Bash Johnson: 11th Grade Ninja. Randy isn't as afraid of him as many other students are, but still doesn't like messing with him. However, in Pranks for Nothing, he plans revenge on Bash for his pranks, which gets completely out of control.Dickie to him, seeing him doing and allowing unfair tricks during his stay in the camp, and his (cruel and psychotic) attitude towards justice. He first met Mac's teenage self in the Nomicon in Stank'd to the Future where Randy is upset that Mac didn't destank Dickie and instead locked him in the cafeteria freezer just so he can go to the prom, even called him out on "selfish ninja-ing." Randy finally meets Mac Antfee in person in Ninja Camp, and Mac Antfee dislikes Randy. According to him, Randy did not have the attitude and skills of a Ninja which clearly upsets Randy, up to the point where Randy told the Nomicon that if Mac's the kind of ninja Randy's supposed to be, then the Nomicon chose the wrong freshman. Upon learning that Mac got expelled from being the ninja any longer, Randy decided to give Mac what's coming to him, now realizing that Mac is out to get the mask, only for Mac to get away. When Mac Antfee returned in Enter the Nomicon, Randy was horrified and refused to believe that Mac Antfee had changed and became a good guy, mainly because of the Ninja Camp experience. He accidently reverts Mac to his old self, but Randy eventually gets Mac Antfee mind-wiped, making him a permament good guy. It is unknown whether or not they're finally on good terms. So U Think U Can Stank while Howard booted him out of the talent show. Upon learning that students get stanked when bummed, Randy decided to not make him bummed in the future, although Juggo got mad at him for ruining the talent show at the end of the episode. In Der Monster Klub, Randy and Juggo seemed to get along quite nicely, hugging each other in one scene and Juggo embracing him in horror in another. It is unknown whether or not they are friends.
Randy and Morgan don't interact with each other a lot, except in So U Think U Can Stank, Monster Drill and Escape from Detention Island. They are shown to be acquaintenced with each other, but not necessarily friends.
Fighting Style as the NinjaNot much about Randy's fighting style is known, he is certainly not traditionally-trained in ninjitsu or any other fighting discipline. Instead, Randy is assumed to be an unorthodox fighter, using almost everything around for his own advantage in battle. He combines his fighting spirit, logic, and creativity well in whatever he's doing. For example, like using a shovel to hit the robot and using the force of a new robot to counter the killer potatoes in Attack of the Killer Potatoes. He also use bells to fight Bucky Hensletter in Got Stank. He heated a Robo-Ape using a convenient microwave option for Robo-Apes in Gossip Boy. It might be considered that Randy might of 'inherited' his fighting style when he wore the Ninja Suit for the first time since he had exclaimed that the Ninja Suit helped him do things he wasn't able to do before. Randy can learn any move if he puts his mind to it and balances his use of offense, defense, and counter-attack skills. He can also use the enemy's force against themselves, like forcing a Chainsaw-Werewolf to exhaustion by blocking the attack long enough. He even cleverly tricked a robot to fight head-on by holding his sword, but switching to cold balls instead to trip him in The Ninja Identity.
Randy also has many Ninja weapons in his arsenal, including the Ninja Sword, smoke-bombs, chain sickles, and others. He mainly uses his sword, which got replaced by S. Ward Smith in Sword Quest, while having different styled swords when he fights with two. His scarf has proven to be a helpful object as well, good for grabbing objects or using to save himself from falling from a great height. Although ninjas are known to use stealth for their advantage, Randy doesn't seem to use this skill much, but has proven to be able to do it. He also has many different types of Ninja balls, including tripping balls, hot balls, and cold balls.
The Nomicon holds a section of "Forbidden Knowledge of the Shadow Warrior," which holds the ability of the art of healing, which Randy learned in Dawn of the Driscoll, and possible future skills like the art of flying, the art of telepathy, and the art of invisibility. After Randy threw the Ninja Mask in a fire to save Howard from the Tengu, he gained Ninja Rage, which he can now use fire-based powers like the Tengu Fireball. The online game Punchocalypse also has a Ninja Cold Rage and Fire Rage, so it can be assumed that Randy might earn this skill eventually. He learned the Art of Disguise to change his apperance by manipulating his facial growth, and is able to use it to fight too when his body is stuck in a net during Secret Stache. It also prevents him from revealing his identity when the mask is attempted to be taken off by McFist. In Hip Hopocalypse Now, he learned how to use the Earth Attack by reciting a spell, creating a sand worm and sand ninjas (which he calls sandjas). The sandjas helped him to execute the cyclone attack, destroying the sand worm into pieces.
As revealed in Ninja Camp, Randy's fighting skills are more honorable than Mac Antfee's which is both dishonorable and cheating. Also, he really doesn't want to hurt anyone who's smaller or younger than him as it wouldn't be a fair fight. In the The Ninja Identity Part 1 he tricked a robot by using a sword to it go head on and make it slip using ninja cold balls.He has good accuaracy and he pierce through the robot with ninja rings and reflecting the ninja ring to land a surprise attack.In Fart-Topia,he quickly cuts off the weapon of two robot with just a ninja ring and use the ninja chained sickle to cut off their head.In the recent episode,Randy became agile evading and counter attack and also delivering attacks after attacks. In McFreaks, he make a robot zap another one. In Sorcerer in Love, Randy is able to avoid debris and also restrained the socceress with sais.He also gained ability to see with his nose when his eyes trick him.
Randy has shown that he can think on his feet proficiently and has displayed a well-developed common sense. Randy is intelligent and clever enough to figure out what meaning lies behind the advice of the Nomicon, in part to his ability to figure out riddles, although sometimes the situation can help reveal it. Many times, though, he has proven to think of plans and actions on his own, whether he's fighting or trying to achieve something, like defeating the blob monster with lava from a volcano, stopping zombies by starting a vomit chain reaction, and even shooting a clock with a pencil eraser to change the time. Whenever he does something wrong, he usually recognizes that it was his fault and thinks of a way to fix it.
He is shown on several occasions to be significantly smarter than Howard, often leading Randy to think up all the ideas, plans, and solutions to their problems, involving their grades and what their next move should be. However, Randy can either not think his plan through enough, or overcomplicate it to ridiculous heights. Not always are his choices the wisest, however, and sometimes he can cause greater problems, varying from on accident to on purpose.
His grades in school are not very high, but it most likely is because he is lazy. He often displays a lack of thought in his actions, like when he writes that he's the Ninja all over his English essay in Last Stall on the Left. He even used mathematical equations to explain a situation in Escape from Detention Island, likely meaning he does well at math, which brings more into question if he's smarter than everyone thinks, but just too unmotivated.
Physical CapabilitiesAlthough the Ninja Suit dramatically increases Randy's physical attributes, he often proves he's quite physically capable. In Night of the Living McFizzles he proves strong enough to kick a door of its hinges, and lift Howard into the air with one hand. He's also able to carry Howard, and drag him across the floor with one leg in Randy Cunningham and the Sorcerer's Key. In The Tale of the Golden Doctor's Note he is very fast and agile, able to avoid the death traps in the old gym. Likewise he seems to have a very impressive stamina, as he was able to constantly travel to and from his house without even seeming tired upon arrival, in Last Stall on the Left.
Randy is highly skilled at playing video games and he spends a sum amount of time at the arcade, along with Howard. He currently has the most high scores in Greg's Gaming Hole, only losing one title to Howard, which he purposely allowed to achieve the high score. Despite this skill, it is mentioned several times that Howard had beaten him in Grave Puncher.
WeaknessesLack of Thought Before Action - Randy says whatever comes in his mind. This weakness is what sometime cause more trouble than he is in like in Der Monster Klub when he accidentally told Julian how to turn into a monster by bumness and in Hip Hopocalypse Now he accidentally summoned a gigantic earthworm after reciting the Earth Attack during a rap battle. This is especially obvious in The Ninja Identity when he ignored the Ninja's warning about the Ultimate Lesson, and ended up mind-wiping himself. Usually, those type of weaknesses were done by accident instead of being done on purpose.
Overconfidence - Randy usually, but not always, taunts or look down on his enemies which sometimes causes him to lose a battle. Happened in Dawn of the Driscoll and the fight against the Mexican Death Bear in Viva El Nomicon. This condition has improved and been toned down in more recent episodes.
Vulnerability Against Distraction - Randy is often, though not always distracted by Howard and his wants allowing his enemies escape or attack more. This happened in Last Stall on the Left as Howard texted him, and House of 1,000 Boogers where he is receiving a call from Howard. In some recent episodes, however, Randy is more focused, ignoring the distractions most of the time.
Alektorophobia - Randy has alektorophobia, which is a fear of chickens and roosters, as seen in McFear Factor. The precense of chickens and/or roosters causes extreme anxiety and fear, which paralyzes Randy enough for the opponents to get an upper hand. He embraces his fear and temporarily manages to cooperate with a giant rooster, but he still shows sign fear of them. The origins of Randy's alektorophobia is unknown.
