"I got a bright little halo, and I'm filled with love... I'm Alice Angel!"
Alice Angel is a cartoon character created by Joey Drew Studios. Similar to the other popular characters, like Bendy and Boris, Alice starred in a series of cartoons during her 1933 debut as the studio's first female cartoon character.
"It has always been part of our plan to bring a dynamic, strong, and intelligent character like Alice to the table,"
Alice Angel was first voiced by Susie Campbell who feels to bear a connection with Alice, unlike the other characters she previously voiced, while mentioning that Sammy thinks Alice may be as popular as Bendy someday. However, later on, Joey Drew announced that Allison Pendle is hired as the new voice actress for Alice Angel out of the blue, much to Susie's utter shock and depression.
"A girl in a short black strapless dress with a halo."
Alice has a combination of angelic and demonic traits, with a pair of horns as well as a halo floating above her head. Her horns can move to point downwards when she's in distress, as seen in her game-over image in Bendy in Nightmare Run.
"Alice isn't your typical girl next door. She's a character with charm, but brains too. When Bendy is getting up to something, Alice is there to throw a wrench into his schemes."
"What kind of gal? Well, she's quite a gal," said Joey Drew with a wry smile. "She sings; she dances. We think Alice's fiery, sharp character will really resonate with Bendy fans,"
Alice is stated to be a dynamic, strong and an intelligent character with charm and brains. She is there to stop Bendy's schemes whenever the little devil is up to something, acting as the more sensible side of the two. Suggested by the "SHE SINGS! SHE DANCES!" tagline from Alice's Sent From Above poster, Alice has a talent for dancing and singing. Heard from her "I'm Alice Angel" song from Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 3, she is revealed to be sweet and happy-go-lucky, as her angelic nature would imply. Sammy Lawrence referred to Alice's voice as both "heavenly and beautiful".
As shown in the cartoon "Cheap Seats", she is generally upbeat and enjoys spending time with Bendy, as evident by her agreeing to go see a film, upon seeing a poster.
- Sent From Above (1933) - Alice's first appearance.
- Siren Serenade (date unknown) - TBA
- Cheap Seats (early 1930s) - TBA
Alice appeared from the second to fifth chapter of Bendy and the Ink Machine as several props dedicated to her like plush toys, brief cutouts, and cartoon clips. Twisted Alice and Allison Angel are the original Alice's real-life counterparts.
- In Chapter 2: The Old Song, Alice is first revealed in a "Sent From Above" poster on the wall, located to the right of the music department hall next to the pool room.
- In Chapter 3: Rise and Fall, from the Heavenly Toys department, posters, plush toys, and even a cardboard cutout of Alice can be found throughout the chapter. In the room dedicated to Alice before Twisted Alice shows up for a jumpscare, several televisions turn on automatically and play the "I'm Alice Angel" song performed by Alice Angel for a little while. Shortly after, Twisted Alice shows up for the first time. On Level 9's inner chamber, a giant statue of Alice holding a "SHE'S QUITE A GAL!" sign can be seen above the entrance to the flooded warehouse.
- In Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders, more numerous environments (posters, sculpture heads, etc) related to Alice Angel reappeared around multiple locations.
- In Chapter 5: The Last Reel, Alice Angel appears in posters and animation clips. In Joey's diary cassette that is located in his office, Alice is mentioned by Joey while discussing his plan with her former voice actress to bring her and the other cartoon characters to reality. She also appears in the after-credits scene in a signed photo from Henry picturing her, Bendy, and Boris holding hands.
- Her halo can be seen carved into Henry's desk with the words "I'll try to do you proud, Henry".
- The origin of Alice's creation will be told in the upcoming novel.
"Sent from above, Alice Angel is a singing, dancing cartoon sensation who brings a little light into everything she touches... often upsetting those who prefer the dark!"
- Cost: 7,500 Bacon Soup
- Default HP: 8
- Advantages: Extra Bacon Soup pack spawn
- Disadvantages: Has less health than average
Alice Angel appears in the mobile spin-off as one of the playable characters, available when purchasing 7,500 Bacon Soup cans. While having a slightly less health, she is able to spawn extra Bacon Soup packs in 2, 4, and 6 during gameplay.
- Alice's design appears to be inspired by Betty Boop, a cartoon creation of Fleischer Studios from a similar time period to the game. They are similar in that they act as a beautiful and cheerful female character to act as a polar opposite to the other main character of the respective studio (Betty Boop to Bimbo, Alice to Bendy). Furthermore, similarly to Betty Boop, Alice's "Sent From Above" poster tagline suggests that she dances and sings.
- The fact that Alice has both a halo and a pair of horns yet lacks wings, implies that she is a fallen angel, supported by the fact that the episode she stars in is titled "Sent From Above".
- The holes in each palm of Alice's gloves are not only strikingly identical to the way Mickey's gloves looked during the 1930's (the image for example), but could also be a reference to stigmata, a term in Christian faith to describe marks or sores on the body in the same places Jesus Christ was crucified, referencing her status as an angel.
- From theMeatly's first Q&A video, when it was questioned if Bendy and Alice are dating, theMeatly's only response was a look of seemingly shocked silence.
- The nature of Alice and Bendy's relationship is also hinted at further in an old description of her official merchandise.
- According to theMeatly on Twitter, Alice is "quite a gal", a hint to the tagline that would accompany her appearance in Chapter 3."That Angel... she's quite a girl." The tagline, "SHE'S QUITE A GAL!", held by Alice's statue in Chapter 3, is a reference to the same tweet.
- theMeatly also stated that there is no problem "an Angel" can't fix, foreshadowing Alice's physical reveal in the same chapter."There's no problem an Angel can't fix."
- Alice is the only cartoon character who has been confirmed to speak with words in the show. Additionally, she is the only one with a confirmed voice actor.
- Chapter 3: Rise and Fall
- Suggested by the "I'm Alice Angel" song performed by the actress Lauren Synger from the game's development team, it is entirely possible that Alice's singing in-game is voiced by Allison Pendle instead of Susie who was replaced unexpectedly, as Susie herself is voiced by Alanna Linayre while Allison is assumed to be voiced by Lauren.
- Similar to Boris, Alice's appearance is model after some of her PhatMojo merchandise products, such as collectible figure packs and clips. PhatMojo's logo seen in the mobile's beginning screen before the starting menu clearly explains Alice's design.
- Alice's outfit design seen after defeating Gaskette on the "Death and Taxis" level's final act seems similar to J. Howard Miller's 1943 "We Can Do It!" World War II wartime poster.
