"Probably have to melt it all down to be rid of it all."
Shawn Flynn's audio log,
Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 3

Shawn Flynn is an Irish toy factory foreman who worked for Heavenly Toys at Joey Drew Studios.[1] He is the creator of numerous toys based on the cartoons.


Shawn has a somewhat twisted sense of humor, shown by the fact that he painted some of the Bendy dolls incorrectly as a practical joke. He appears to be a worker who is not as obsessed with detail as his employer is, and speaks in a working class Dublin accent.

In Boris and the Dark Survival, he recorded his frustration over his missing tool belt, and accused an unnamed Gent employee (possibly Thomas Connor) of stealing it.


In the Studio

He recalls an encounter with Joey, who chastised him for making a batch of Bendy dolls with a "crooked smile", and remarks that if Joey had wanted to help the situation, he could've given hints on what to do with the piles of Alice Angel merchandise from the warehouse, referring to her as "that angel whatchamacallit".

Shawn remarks that Alice's merchandise is not selling well, and suggests melting the dolls down as a means of getting rid of them rather than keeping them in storage.[2]

Sometime later, he mentions that he bought a "One of a Kind" toolbelt for himself, claiming that it wasn't on his shelf the next day. He candidly notes that he saw a Gent employee wearing a belt that looked exactly like his, leading him to accuse said employee of being the reason for its disappearance.

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

"I don't be seein' what the big deal is. So what if I went and painted some of those Bendy dolls with a crooked smile? That's sure no reason for Mr. Drew to be flyin' off the handle at me. And if he really wants to be so helpful, he could be tellin' me what I'm to be doin' with this warehouse I got full of that angel whatchamacallit. Not a scrap of that mess be a-sellin'! Probably have to melt it all down to be rid of it all."
Shawn's only audio log.

"So here's what I've been askin' meself: "Shawn, you've went and bought yourself a new, one-of-a-kind toolbelt. 'twas a beautiful thing. But last night, you put it up on your shelf, and the very next day, when you came back to this old toy factory, it was gone! Lost to t'in air." Now here's the very question I ask meself: "Isn't that new, one-of-a-kind toolbelt that Gent fella's wearin' this mornin' just such a beautiful thing? I wonder where he got it." As if I didn't know, the dirty crow."

General Facts

  • Shawn is voiced by a popular Irish YouTuber Seán McLoughlin, better known as Jacksepticeye. Furthermore, McLoughlin, unlike other voice actors, uses his natural speaking voice to voice Shawn Flynn.
    • Shawn was originally intended to be voiced by theMeatly, as well as countless others, but due to having troubles with using Irish accent during testing, as well as the fact that none of the other applicants had the accent that theMeatly was going for, he contacted McLoughlin about providing the voice. Having already played the game on his channel, McLoughlin excitedly agreed.[1]

In-Game Facts

  • When listening to Shawn's tape, the pumping of the toy machinery can be heard in the background.
  • A tweet on Bendy and the Ink Machine game's official Twitter account hints that Shawn has gone missing after Joey Drew's outburst over the slightly imperfectly-made Bendy dolls.[3]
  • When using the Seeing Tool on his tape, the message "Top of the mornin'" can be read, referencing his voice actor's intro catchphrase.
  • The unused texture of Shawn's name.

    Shawn is the only employee whose fate remains unclear, his name is not on a coffin and he does not have any letters at Joey's apartment. However, his unused name texture was meant to be revealed by using the Seeing Tool, alluding that the developers intended to make him deceased.
