Characters

All the available playable characters (along with Dr. Fetus but excluding Meat Ninja) in Super Meat Boy

Super Meat Boy has unlockable characters that can be obtained, provided the player either beats a character specific warp zone or collects enough Bandages.

The XBLA/PS4/Vita/Wii U and Steam versions have different characters, but some have similar abilities (Gish and Headcrab are very similar, and Bandage Girl and Brownie plays the same as Meat Boy).

Some characters require a code to be typed on the character select screen. Once the code is typed, just select the character who is currently selected. The code must be typed every time you want to play as that character.

Each character represents a different indie title (with the exception of Headcrab, Brownie, Potato Boy, and Meat Ninja). Below are all the unlockable characters and which games they originated from.

TriviaEdit

  • Alien Hominid was originally only available in the XBLA version, but after the release of Super Meat Boy: Ultra Edition, he was added to the Steam version.
  • The reason you can play as Dr. Fetus in devmode is possibly because his movement patterns in his boss battle are actually a recorded run of the level by a developer as Dr. Fetus.
  • Out of all the characters that are playable in all versions of the game, Brownie is the only character that doesn't need to get a specific amount of bandages, or complete a warpzone to unlock him.
