"What the heck is this?"
Henry upon entering theMeatly's secret room, Bendy and the Ink Machine

theMeatly, one of the main creators, is a recurring Easter Egg from almost all of the games of the Bendy series up to date.


Based on the mascot of the game's developing company and comic series, he is tall with long, skinny black limbs, and a floating circular white head with black eyes, a complete lack of neck, and a line for a mouth.

Even though his rectangular body is red in the comic series, it is light, yellowish-brown in color due to the color-style for the game itself. His entire self also appears completely flat, as if made out of paper. As merely an environmental decoration, he barely does anything.

  • All of theMeatly's locations in chapters so far are behind Boris' "Sheep Songs!" poster.
    • Additionally the surrounding walls so far are different from the wall Henry enters to go to theMeatly's room.
    • The locations might mean that Boris is TheMeatly's favorite character.
  • Henry says "What the heck is this?" when entering theMeatly's room in all chapters. This might be a form of self-deprecation.

  • Chapter 4 is the only chapter where theMeatly's room is hidden at the start of a chapter rather than at the end of a chapter.
