The Ink is an unnatural living organism that was created by the Ink Machine.



The Ink is nothing else than a black ink-like substance, with no descriptive details. It lacks any form or shape, due to its liquid-like behaviors.


Far from the inert liquid it appears to be, the ink is capable of moving, and even slithered into someone's mouth.


If it were to make contact with another living organism, the ink will heighten an organism's emotions, primarily those of which they keep held back. This is best displayed by Bill Chambers, Constance Gray, and Brant Morris. Upon contact with the ink, Bill began to be more cowardly and scared, Constance became more aggressive and annoyed, and Brant found himself constantly ashamed and feeling guilty even over the most minor offensives, like a poorly timed joke. It also appears to possess incredibly addictive properties, as demonstrated by Sammy Lawrence becoming 'hooked' after only a single drop lands on his tongue, and can turn people into twisted parodies of cartoon characters over time, or just make them resemble humanoid blobs of ink, like Lost Ones. When paired with the Ink Machine, it can also form rough approximations of cartoon characters such as Ink Bendy without the need for a human host, receiving information on shape and behavior from cartoon films depicting the character it's trying to imitate that are fed through the Ink Machine.


Not much is known about The Ink's history, so this is all fan speculation. If we assume that the Ink Machine was established and installed from 1942-1943, The Ink should have been created a little before or after. Most likely being created in 1940 or later in the year of 1943.


  • It is unknown if Thick Ink and/or Extra-Thick Ink fall under this category of ink, though it is possible, as they appear to pulsate on the ground and in Henry’s hand.
