~ Muscle Man

Mitchell "Mitch" Sorenstein, commonly known as Muscle Man, is a main character of Regular Show. He is one of the groundskeepers at the Park. He is a green, strong and obese monster and/or disfigured humanoid, who is often seen with his best friend, High Five Ghost. Muscle Man made his first debut as a cameo character in the Pilot, and then made an official appearance in The Power. Muscle Man was voiced by Sam Marin.


Muscle Man is a green, obese man with shoulder-length, greenish brown hair. He wears a long-sleeved grayish-blue shirt, dark gray pants, and black shoes. In the Trucker Hall of Fame when he was a kid, he still looked the same, but with freckles. As a teenager, he was tall, skinny, and had zits.

Personality and Traits

Muscle Man is a type of monster and/or disfigured humanoid that works in the park along with Mordecai and Rigby. As of the episode Gut Model, he has worked for the park for 5 years. Although Benson considers him to be hard-working, Muscle Man (along with High Five Ghost) has been revealed to do more work than Mordecai and Rigby, despite the fact that all four of them are slackers. In Muscle Woman, however, they tend to slack off more than Mordecai and Rigby. In My Mom, it's shown that he has a lot of friends, most in which love his constant "My Mom!" jokes, which everyone else at the park gets annoyed with. He's best friends with High Five Ghost, who loves his jokes. Ignorant yet clever when it comes to pranks, he's always either insulting Mordecai or Rigby, or trying to prank them (ex. "My Mom", "See You There"). But he does care about his mom as shown in My Mom when he got very angry when Mordecai and Rigby made fun of his mom. In response, he brought his brother, John, to give Mordecai and Rigby a punishment for ridiculing their mother.

Despite being obese and lazy, there is a story behind Muscle Man's nickname (as revealed in Peeps). In the episode, he said that he is losing muscle mass from the stress Peeps put on him, so he may have muscle mass. He also loves to mess around with Mordecai and Rigby.


  • My Mom Jokes - In many episodes, Muscle Man has made "my mom" jokes. Instead of the iconic "your mom" jokes, Muscle Man flips it and ends of making fun of his own mother.

  • Gut Model - In Gut Model, Muscle Man is a very good "model" when giving off his gut looks.
  • Temporary Tattoos - Muscle Man obviously likes getting temporary tattoos. Since Trash Boat and Muscle Woman, he has two tattoos: One of a dog and one that says "STARLA".

    • In the same episode, Mordecai refers to Muscle Man as a "human", even though he does not resemble one.
      • It is revealed that Muscle Man is a human because in Muscle Woman, Mordecai pointed out that he was "still human" when explaining the situation to Starla but the animators could have made a mistake; however, it was practically believed that children would comprehend the word 'human' better because it is easier to say that way.

  • Muscle Man often goes berserk when he is injured/hurt (ex. See You There, Over The Top, Karaoke Video, Death Metal Crash Pit).
  • Even though Muscle Man was fired in "Don," he still works at the park in the next episode. He possibly could have been hired back because The Park didn't have enough workers.
