See Lost One (disambiguation) for other related uses.
The Lost Ones have a similar appearance to humans, only deformed and skeletal. They are covered completely in black ink similar to tar and are noticeably bald. Sometimes, their forlorn-looking eyes can be seen glowing a yellowish color. They have what appear to be small tentacles for a mouth.
The Lost Ones are neutral monsters. Sometimes, they will stand in complete stillness, watching Henry pass, as if they are statues. They also appear to be in a state of despair, some either hunched over and crying or, in one case seen in one of the rooms while traveling the vents, banging their head against the wall in a suicidal manner. They will move their heads to look at Henry when he comes near them. If provoked, the Lost Ones act as a threat towards anyone they deem dangerous, as seen in Chapter 5 after Sammy's death.
Other than them being confirmed to be former humans, further details about the Lost Ones' origin has yet to be uncovered.
Only two unique lost ones (the Lost One player and the Patron) appeared in this game. The Lost One Player can been unlocked after the player has collected all the Lost Papers throughout the levels. They can then be played with instead of Buddy Boris or Sammy. The Patron can be found in the Golden Days Gallery. No groups of Lost Ones can currently be found in-game.
The first time Henry encounters Lost ones is in the Archives, in which they are all stuck in some position like statues, gathering in front of (and seemly worshiping) the Bendy statue. If Henry returns to the room with the statue after pushing the first book, all of them have vanished.
After witnessing the a lost one standing on a balcony, the next room Henry will enter will have many of them, most either staring into space, sitting in a cage, staring at Henry mournfully, or sitting on the ground in despair.
As soon as Henry enters the vent, two of the Lost Ones are in front of the vent's entrance seen if Henry turns around, blocking the entrance. Another one is found in an unreachable room which can be viewed in the vents, banging their head against the wall.
One with non-glowing eyes can be found in Storage 9, sitting on top of a cage. Another one is found in the hall leading to the structure room from the Research and Design department where the Butcher Gang surrounds a heated barrel, behind bars and sobbing while curled up.
In Chapter 5: The Last Reel, upon sailing to Lost Harbor, a Lost One should be seen peacefully fishing in the entry of the village way from the distance at Henry's left.
In the same location, the Lost Ones will spawn as hostile enemies moments after Sammy is killed. The Lost Ones appear in the middle of the horde of Searchers and are killed in two hits with the axe. During the fight, some of the Lost Ones will carry makeshift weapons (such as a plank of wood) to use against Henry, Allison Angel, and Tom.
They later appear inside the Giant Ink Machine, behind most of the glass cases lining the walls.
The Lost Ones will make a return, identified as both male and female. The Lost Ones are seen twice in the trailer attacking Audrey, and she had to either run or hide from them without being seen or fight back with any weapon wielded by her.
- Gavin McCarthy's concept art for the Lost Ones featured a nose, non-glowing yellow eyes, four toes instead of five, and deformed arms with a mass of ink drips.
- All Lost Ones from throughout the game are male and identical.
- Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders
- Upon hacking, there is a hidden weeping Lost One sitting in an area blocked with boulders, which is behind one of the pipes in the darkness, along with a huge Wandering Sin cutout.
- From the chapter's removed post-credits, several Lost Ones are seen surrounding Twisted Alice's corpse.
