Miscellania

Forbes' pregame ritual has caused large amounts of confusion, as few realize the "fans" they refer to are box fans, ceiling fans, and other cooling fans of that sort. Further complicating matters is Forbes' use of a blindfold, causing them to periodically mistake people who introduce themselves as fans for animate cooling fans. Typically, a teammate, staff member, or other fan will shoo Forbes away from the target fan using a broom, saxophone, or other such implement. On the few occasions where nobody is around to assist the targeted fan, Forbes is reported to have begun to bite the fan, but then realized the error and stopped.

The Jazz Hands refer to Forbes as Lowe "Lowe-ded Bases" Forbes. Forbes initially only had a one-star rating in part because of their insistence on playing with a blindfold on "for the challenge." This changed starting in Season 7 as Forbes began siphoning pitching ability from other players in the ILB. Forbes believes this is a manifestation of their vampiric powers, as they once bit former teammate Alexandria Dracaena, noted vampire. When an interviewer pointed out that this is not how vampires traditionally work, they cited their hatred of onions, tendency to sunburn, and inability to see themself in a mirror (while wearing their blindfold) as evidence of being a vampire. A letter from a Jazz Hands union laundry worker later hypothesized that Forbes' improvement could be due to their blindfold wearing thin, suggesting Forbes is actually an extremely strong pitcher under normal circumstances.

Forbes has made it on the Forbes list of Worst Blaseball Pitchers named Forbes. Because Forbes shares a last name with Brock Forbes, Lowe Forbes incorrectly believes that the two are married, claiming that the marriage is for "tax evasion". Brock Forbes is unaware of this.

The LoweNandy Infinirivalry

The rivalry between Forbes and Nandy Slumps is a common source of stories across multiple dimensions, though they are typically little more than Rumors. One such rumor is presented below.

Nandy and Lowe once tried to resolve their longstanding rivalry with a contest of sports from their area, With Lowe proposing a Snowball fight, and Nandy proposing a Mahjong competition. Lowe lost the snowball fight not being to hit Nandy because of their blindfold, but somehow winning the Mahjong competition. To this day they both claim the other one cheated on both events and the rivalry hasn't been resolved.
