"Work hard, mustard big."

— Hawt Dawg Man

Hawt Dawg Man (sometimes referred to as Bob) is a recurring anthropomorphic hot dog throughout Life is Strange, originally seen as a figure in the alternative timeline in Chloe's bedroom, and later in the prequel game, Before the Storm, and its bonus episode Farewell.

He is featured in a videogame Max and Chloe used to play during their childhood years. He has become a common figure for fan art and merchandise. Hawt Dawg Man has also been the subject of many joke theories in the community.
