A warp zone is a wormhole found on some levels that disappears after a certain amount of time. If the player touches it, Meat Boy gets sucked in and the announcer saying "WARP ZOOONE!!!" is heard. The warp zone is permanently unlocked on the map. Warp zones consist of three miniature levels. There are two types of warp zones:
Bandage Warp ZoneEdit
Appears three times per world. (2 in light world, 1 in dark world) When entered, the player needs to beat three retro-style levels with two bandages with Meat Boy with only three lives. Fortunately, your lives are brought back up to three when you beat a stage. If the player acquires a bandage in one of these, he/she needs to beat the entire warp zone to keep it. They can be either 8-bit, 4-bit, or gameboy style. When viewing them from the map, they are purple in the light world, and black vice-versa. They do not appear in Chapter 6 or 7. When beaten some characters saying "Sorry Meat Boy but Bandage Girl is in another Warp Zone" are: two blocks one blue and another pink, Capitan Viridian, Runman, a guy with a mask, a light blue creature, a green guy, Tommy and Edmund, Spewer, Pico, Tim in his shadow form, Steven, Gomez, the kid and the moon, Pickle Man, Florian Himsl, Karioshi protagonist, Jill, Knytt, the protagonist of and all start to fall, and gameboy Bandage Girl saying "Thanks Meat Boy!" and then "oh noes!!" transforming into a creature and walking away.
Character Warp ZoneEdit
Appears once per world. You get unlimited lives, and you play as a new character. There are the usual three levels, and you must use the character's special ability to beat the level. There's also an introduction for the character. Once you beat the warp zone, the character you played as in the warp zone becomes unlocked. When being viewed from the map, or when entering one, they are red. Like Retro Warp Zones, these also don't appear in Chapters 6 or 7.
List of Warp ZonesEdit
- If a warp zone is found with a character besides Meat Boy, no character is shown.
