"What the heck is this?"
Henry upon entering theMeatly's secret room

theMeatly is both a character and a recurring Easter Egg from throughout the chapters of Bendy and the Ink Machine, and he can only be located in a small secret room behind Boris the Wolf's "Sheep Songs!" poster.

Background

Description

Based on the mascot of the game's developing company and comic series, he is tall with long, skinny black limbs, and a floating circular white head with black eyes, a complete lack of neck, and a line for a mouth.

Even though his rectangular body is red in the comic series, it is light, yellowish-brown in color due to the color-style for the game itself. His entire self also appears completely flat, as if made out of paper.

Personality

It is technically not explained what theMeatly's in-game personality is. He just remains standing, never moving an inch, and barely does anything.

The Original Sample

theMeatly makes a short appearance at the end of the cartoon. This was ironic because theMeatly in-game is also found from the room of the deceased Boris clone.

  • theMeatly has confirmed that he will be a recurring Easter Egg in every chapter.
  • Prior to Chapter 2's updates before the release of Chapter 4, theMeatly did not hold a tuba in Chapter 2 and instead had the same pose from Chapter 1.
  • Chapter 4 is the only chapter where theMeatly's room is hidden at the start of the chapter rather than at the end.
