Level 3/3

"The Guy!" is a character warp zone required to unlock The Kid found in Chapter 5: The Rapture. It is very, very difficult due to a new gimmick being introduced, very little room for error, and the difficulty of the original game, "I Wanna Be The Guy", which this warp zone is modeled after. It is located in Level 5-7.

The first level consists of screen-high, thin pillars covered in spikes, followed by long jumps over spiked floors. There are five safe spots that you can stand on and take a break, one of which is the spawn point and another being the location of Bandage Girl. 

The second level consists of four columns with spikes in them that can be traveled through. Each column has a moving platform passing up/down through it, which can be ridden through the spikes with precise movement. Between the second and third columns, a spiked corridor is at the top of the stage, and must be navigated. 

The final level consists of three corridors, one on top of the other. Each corridor has spikes at the top and bottom, in different positions for each corridor. The real challenge of the level comes from the spikes that are flung through the corridors at high speeds, leaving a one-block wide gap at the top of the corridor that is safe.


  • Even though IWBTG has unexpected traps, this warp zone doesn't have them and it instead is very difficult.


  • You sometimes fall through the platform in the second level, making it even harder.
  • There is a bug where you can get The Kid without even playing this warp zone. It is the Bandage Duplication Glitch. First, go to the second level in Sky Pup (the very first warp zone) and get to Bandage Girl, then, if timed correctly, you then will save a replay of the first level if you press the Spacebar at the right time. Second, go to this warp zone, then exit and go to the Main Menu, then find Sky Pup's replay in the Replays section. Watch it to the end, then go to this warp zone and you'll find out that you're in the middle of the second level. Third, exit to the Main Menu again and watch the Sky Pup replay 2 times. The Kid is then unlocked. Easy cheats.
