Meat Boy is the protagonist of the 'Meat Boy' series. He is a boy with no skin (or made of meat, based upon how he splatters upon death, and the title of the game) in the shape of a cube.
He is in love with Bandage Girl who is constantly being captured by Dr. Fetus. Meat Boy has to traverse dangerous terrain covered in saws and other various hazards to rescue her. Unlike most other characters, Meat Boy can beat every level (except specific warp zones).
Cons: The first character, so he has no special ability.
You can unlock different variations of Meat Boy in the Steam and XBLA version, e.g. 8-bit Meat Boy and 4 Color Meat Boy.
- Edmund has confirmed that Meat Boy is not made of animal meat.
