Meat Boy is the main square of Super Meat Boy. He is a skinless boy in the shape of a cube who is in a relationship with Bandage Girl. He not only loves Bandage Girl, but, because of his lack of skin , he needs her to stay alive. Thus, when she is captured by Dr. Fetus, he must rescue her.


Although he has no special abilities, he has one of the fastest movement speeds in the game, along with RunMan and the Ninja. This makes him effective in speedruns and generally completing levels quickly. He is also one of the only characters in the game who is able to complete every level. He leaves blood behind him as he runs, which stays there even after he dies and can be used to view failed strategies, and is the only playable character in boss battles.

Meat Boy is unlocked from the beginning of the game.


  • Team Meat confirmed on Twitter that Meat Boy can circumcise and uncircumcise himself at will, referring to this ability as Schrodinger's foreskin.[1]
  • Edmund has confirmed that Meat Boy is not made of animal meat.
  • The sounds he emits sounds like a goo blob. Interestingly, Gish shares the same sounds with Meat Boy.
  • Meat boy has no dedicated warp zone.
  • Meat boy is the one of the fastest, meaning he is good for speed-runs.

  1. Team Meat: Meatboy can circumcise and uncircumcise himself at will. So the answer is both, it's like Schrodinger's foreskin. You wonderful freaks.
