Twisted Alice appears to be a young woman and as a humanoid "replica" of Alice Angel with straight medium-length black hair, thin eyebrows, and black lipstick. She wears a semi-broken angel halo that melted into the left side of her head as well as possessing a pair of short, realistic-looking demon horns. She wears a black flapper dress in the 1920's style with a white bow tie resembling Bendy's. Her entire arms are coated with ink-black color to resemble sleeve-like gloves, but she does not wear white gloves like her original counterpart, Alice Angel. Unlike the original Alice, she wears a pair of black tights for her legs and Mary Jane style shoes. She also has a sepia bow on the back of her dress that has straps, which the original Alice Angel does not appear to have.
The iris color of her right eye is the same yellow as her eyeball, and she has a "beauty" spot on the right side of her face along with a small mole. The left side of her face resembles melted wax, with half of her teeth exposed and an empty left eye-socket with few ink-like tears. On her neck there appeared to be a slit oozing with one drip of blood-like ink.
Twisted Alice is first shown to be somewhat friendly and manipulative. This is revealed when she makes Henry Stein do all of her biddings in exchange for letting him use the lift to escape the studio. She was sadistic, demanding Henry to kill the ink-dwelling creatures, and also threatening to kill him should he anger her. When it seemed she was going to let Henry go free, she dropped her façade and revealed herself as a very demanding, childish and persistent monster, although she expresses this side when ordering Henry to slaughter the Butcher Gang enemies. She also had a semi-bookish, poetic speech pattern.
Twisted Alice was incredibly vain and obsessed with her beauty and perfection, and would've done anything to maintain it. This is seen in the numerous dead clones of Boris, Piper, Fisher, and Striker she had harvested, as well as her constant fear of the other ink monsters, as she fears that they will drag her back into the "dark puddles".
She was shown to have a seething hatred for Ink Bendy, as well as some form of rivalry towards the Ink Demon, as she would not let him touch her again after she had turned from a shapeless blob to a nearly human-shaped figure. Additionally, she also warns Henry to hide from Ink Bendy whenever he appears close by.
Twisted Alice's voice seems demonic and changes constantly. At all times, she will have an additional voice for her own voice sounding low in pitch. Sometimes and briefly, her voice can change closely resembling the original Alice Angel's own voice.
Alice has her first in-game appearance after being added in The Wolf Trials update under the name '' Milla Legna '' a distraught woman from Eastern Europe, who somehow found herself trapped within the walls of Joey Drew Studios. Throughout the game, Buddy Boris can find her tapes in various corpses of failed clones of Boris the Wolf. After Buddy Boris collects all the recordings of Milla he should find the key to open the door leading to the room Milla was trapped in.
The Truth and Wolf Hunting
Once collecting all of Milla's tapes and her key, Buddy Boris can enter a door, revealing her to be a pseudonym made up by Alice to lure Buddy Boris to his doom. An ending cutscene now plays and Alice is now hunting for Buddy Boris. This is meant to emphasize that Buddy Boris managed to escape her wrath, as indicated by the ending. After the ending, the player is suddenly greeted by another level, which, unlike the other levels, is of indeterminate location, and has a fixed layout. Twisted Alice's presence in the area itself is indicated by her sinister cackling. After completing the level, Twisted Alice will occasionally appear in the standard randomly-generated levels.
Unlike the other monsters that hunt Buddy Boris, Twisted Alice simply meanders, as opposed to running, unless provoked. When visible, a white halo is visible around her feet, similarly to Ink Bendy's shadowy masses. Her equivalent of the ominous heartbeat noises that emanate from Ink Bendy's shadowy masses is her humming of Lonely Angel. If she finds Buddy Boris within her line of sight, she will yell out a loud, defiant screech and charge after him, flailing her arms about as she does so. Should Buddy Boris hide in a Little Miracle Station and Twisted Alice is visibly close, it is possible to see her stamp on the ground with her foot childishly, emphasizing that she is frustrated. Every time Buddy Boris hides from Twisted Alice, she will mutter to herself, either gloating that he would eventually come out of hiding, or in the case of some other quotes, venting her frustration.
Introduction of the Angel
In Alice's toy room, she makes her first appearance where she suddenly appears inside the center booth room while the "I'm Alice Angel" song is about to end, screaming "I'M ALICE ANGEL!" in a fit of frustration while banging on the window and then breaking it before disappearing. Just before the lights go back on, Twisted Alice's voice is heard, saying that she is aware of Henry's arrival and beckons him to come along further.
Down to Level K
Twisted Alice's voice is once again heard when Henry enters the elevator of Level K with Buddy Boris, talking through a speaker. She considers Henry as being so "interesting" and "different" and then demands him to visit Level 9.
In the flooded morgue, Henry and Buddy Boris encounter deceased clones of Boris, Piper, Fisher, and Striker. Twisted Alice, using the speaker, says their deaths were necessary to make her beautiful and that anything that wasn't perfect was left behind.
The Dark Puddles
From the last room at the end of Level 9 Henry enters, she is seen using the machine pad to torture Piper. After noticing Henry's arrival, she ends with torturing Piper and contemplates killing Henry. She tells Henry about what it would be like living in the "dark puddles", describing it as a "buzzing, screaming well of voices". Then she talks about her creation where she first started out as a "wriggling, pusing, shapeless slug" created from the overflow of ink. She says that she was born again, but this time it "made her an angel" and that she wouldn't let Ink Bendy touch her again as she is so close to her perfect form. Eventually, she determines Henry to be of use, and promises to send him back up, but only if he completes certain tasks. Afterwards, she closes the entire window with two gates and continues to torture Piper, possibly killing him.
Doing Tasks for the Angel
Twisted Alice's tasks include collecting special gears on Level K, collecting extra-thick ink from the Swollen Searchers on Level 11, collecting valve cores on Level P, destroying Bendy cutouts (for the purpose of angering Ink Bendy), defending her room from the Butcher Gang, and collecting hearts from Level 14. While Henry is embarking on these tasks, Twisted Alice will speak of Ink Bendy and advise Henry on hiding.
The Angel's Double-Cross
Once all of her tasks are completed, Twisted Alice will allow Henry to go back onto the elevator with Buddy Boris, but as they are ascending she begins to laugh maniacally. She will then plunge the elevator toward Level S, reveals her true knowledge of Henry's intentions, and accuses him of stealing from her. Twisted Alice then demands that he gives Buddy Boris to her or else she would take him for herself after killing Henry, as Buddy Boris' insides are needed for her to be beautiful again.
After the elevator crashes, Twisted Alice, who is heard humming, will sneak up on Buddy Boris, who is tending to Henry. Soon after when everything goes dark, she seems to disappear once she is close enough to get behind Buddy Boris, along with kidnapping him by force, leaving Henry unconscious in the wreckage.
Twisted Alice reveals to have transformed Buddy Boris into a hulking beast known as Brute Boris. At the end of the fight, she loses her cool after Henry finished Brute Boris off. Infuriated, she lunges at Henry. Although she is stopped in her tracks when Allison Angel impales Twisted Alice with a sword, killing her.

- When Twisted Alice screams "I'M ALICE ANGEL!" from Alice's room, her subtitle is not displaying (even if the subtitles are enabled upon using options).
- While Twisted Alice's laughter was heard after her jumpscare in Alice's room, her jumpscare actually does end up laughing once she shatters the booth window. Although this last part of her animation is not completely visible due to the room's thick darkness that suddenly occurs. It still can be clearly seen only when using the animation program engine.
- At the end of the chapter, there is a rare bug where Twisted Alice's speech and her subtitles are far out of sync, leading her dialogue to finish in the scene where she sneaks up behind Buddy Boris. It is unknown if this bug was fixed for Chapter 4's release.
- On Twitter, Mike Mood shared a link to the SoundCloud audio of the "original" version for one of Twisted Alice's dialogue where she brings Henry and Buddy Boris to Level 9, tested by Mike himself.
- Prior to the release of Chapter 4, there was an after credit image for the "Path of the Angel" ending, with Buddy Boris being tied up, and Twisted Alice's shadow looming on a nearby wall.

- Chapter 5: The Last Reel
- At the chapter's epilogue, drawings of Twisted Alice can be seen in Joey's sketches found in his apartment. Twisted Alice's sketch scenes include her fighting off the ink creatures with the aid of Allison Angel, her transforming into an unrevealed demonic form, her "cartoony" version preparing to operate the already-deceased smiling Boris corpse, sitting on Ink Bendy's throne, and riding in the cart of the Haunted House with Buddy Boris or Tom.
- She is added in The Wolf Trials update.
- Her walking animation was taken directly from the tail end of Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 3.
- Her chase animation was taken directly from the ending of Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 4.
- One of her voice lines is an ironic reference to the Brothers Grimm fairy tale The Three Little Pigs.
