|~ Snoopy's catch phrase after being shot down by the Red Baron.|
The Red Baron is a recurring nemesis of Snoopy while in his World War I Flying Ace guise in the Peanuts comic strip, and the main antagonist of the franchise (seeing as Lucy is more of an anti-hero). He is based off of the real life Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, a German fighter pilot ace in World War I. In Snoopy's fantasies, he himself is a British (later American) pilot in a Sopwith Camel, trying to take down the Red Baron; but instead, his own plane is almost always shot down by his archenemy.
- The Red Baron is the final boss in the video game, Snoopy vs The Red Baron.
- He bears a slight physical resemblance to Dr. Robotnik.
