This alien is somehow both the universe’s worst and greatest master of disguise. Welcome to WatchMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Best Roger Smith Costumes in American Dad.

For this list, we’re taking a look at the funniest outfits and characters Roger Smith has put on to blend in with society, although it really should be obvious to everyone that he’s not even human.

#10: Professor Baxter


Sick of being viewed as the family’s bumbling jester, Roger decides to adopt a more serious persona, drawing inspiration from Adam Sandler in “Punch-Drunk Love” and Jim Carrey in “The Majestic.” Professor Baxter is especially reminiscent of Robin Williams’ dramatic turn in “Dead Poets Society.” Roger strives to inspire his students by spouting cliché lectures about following your dreams and seizing the day. But Rogers’ teachings have some fatal ramifications, inadvertently encouraging one overly passionate student to kill his dad. Learning his lesson, Roger finds that he might be better off playing the buffoon than trying to pass himself off as an intellectual.

#9: Horse Renoir


Seeking wardrobe funds, Roger decides to collect the bounty on Jeff, who’s wanted in Florida for drug possession. Hitting the road, he takes on a new character named Horse Renoir. It’s evident that Horse was inspired by Dog the Bounty Hunter, what with his sunglasses, black leather ensemble, and head of untamed blonde hair. Not much is revealed about Horse’s backstory, although his parents were apparently a prostitute... and a whore. Roger is known for being whiny, wimpy, and an all-around klutz, but Horse allows him to showcase his badass side. Of course even at his most hardcore, Roger is still Roger.

#8: Jenny Fromdabloc


Roger’s sexuality is always depicted as a bit... flexible. Under the guise of Steve’s New Jersey cousin, Jenny Fromdabloc, Roger takes us to some hilariously uncomfortable places as he goes all the way with Snot. Well, technically Snot makes love to a stress ball, but their relationship is still inappropriate to say the least, as one’s roughly around 14 and the other is over 1601. Steve is understandably horrified to see his best friend and alien slipping each other the tongue, becoming determined to break them up. Roger ultimately decides to let Snot down easy… by faking Jenny’s death in gruesome fashion.


#7: Sidney Huffman


Method actors sometimes get too into character and Roger is no exception. Sidney Huffman is a clean-cut everyman who sounds an awful lot like Jimmy Stewart. Roger gets so deep into character that his alter ego takes on a life of his own. It’s a classic split-personality tale right out of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” Desiring nothing more than to settle down with his girlfriend and make an honest living, Sidney emerges as a sympathetic character we want to see happy. As the old saying goes, however, nice guys finish last, as Sidney gets stabbed in the back … by himself.

#6: Roy Rogers McFreely


Roger has a tendency to stir up a commotion over the most minor inconveniences. When Stan fails to purchase him a bottle of grenadine, Roger creates a new character named Roy Rogers McFreely to stick it to the man. McFreely commands every room he enters, which allows him to become the new head of the Homeowners Association. Through his newfound position, Roger abuses his power to undermine Stan at every turn. An overgrown child in an full-grown alien body, Roger is all the more hilarious whenever he gains authority. As McFreely, Roger not only rules the Homeowners Association, but also dominates the dance floor.

#5: Ricky Spanish


Roger walks a fine line between being a sociopath and a psychopath, but he's a saint compared to his most hated persona, Ricky Spanish. The most despised man in Langley Falls, Ricky is Roger at his worst, which is saying a lot. Ricky’s so infamous that his name can’t be said without being followed by an ominous whisper and a brief glimpse at his sinful deeds. Steve makes it his mission to prove that even a soul as reprehensible as Ricky can find redemption. Staying true to his character, Roger teaches Steve that not every caterpillar was meant to become a beautiful butterfly.



#4: Laura Vanderbooben


Sexual harassment is no laughing matter, but Laura Vanderbooben puts an outrageous spin on this serious issue. Learning that a woman received a million-dollar settlement for being harassed at work, Roger thinks he can make a fortune by playing a sexually explicit character without an ounce of subtlety. Trouble is, no one is interested in Laura’s boobs and booty. Her voice isn’t exactly a turn-on either. Taking matters into his own hands, Roger creates another character to make unwanted advantages towards Laura. This results in the company giving Laura a settlement, but it’s only for $90,000 since she’s not deemed pretty enough.

#3: Braff Zacklin [aka the Legman]



Inspired by retro buddy cop shows, Steve and Roger decide to become a detective duo. Roger becomes Braff Zacklin, a man with a hysterically inconsistent backstory. While it’s debated which one of them will get to use the wheelchair gimmick, they ultimately agree that Steve should be Wheels and Roger shall be The Legman. From there, these two sleuths become reoccurring personas who crack an assortment of cases. Of course, in true Roger fashion, he’s usually the criminal mastermind behind every mystery. Who says that you can’t play both the cop and the robber?

#2: Tearjerker


We’ve seen Roger act as both an antihero and antagonist, fighting for something petty either way. As Tearjerker, we get to see what would happen if Roger was a diabolical villain bent on world domination. He's everything one could want in a James Bond baddie: charismatic, colorful, and complete with a complicated plan. As his name suggests, Tearjerker’s plot involves making the whole world cry themselves to death. How? With a holocaust movie that has the most blatant awards bait title imaginable: “Oscar Gold,” which naturally stars Tearjerker as the mentally challenged titular character. His plans may be thwarted, but Tearjerker would return…




Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:


The Phantom of the Telethon

Chex LeMeneux

Dr. Penguin

#1: Kevin Bacon



Roger’s costumes typically have one glaring problem: they don’t have noses! Feeling insecure, Roger starts wearing a fake nose modeled after Kevin Bacon’s. The disguise works too well, as people mistake Roger for the real deal. Roger exploits the situation to get free stuff, treat other people like dirt, and to cut footloose in a glorious homage to Bacon’s career-defining role. After alienating almost everyone, Roger abandons his Bacon persona. But it turns out that Roger had no choice, though, because he got into a hit-and-run accident. Roger was so convincing in this role that not even the real Bacon could tell the difference.
