Special Moves Edit

Standard B - Meen Magic Edit

Meen shoots a flash of magic towards his opponent, dealing 6% damage if it connects. It can be charged, and the fully charged version is shot automatically and deals 25% damage and low knockback.

Side B - Meen Speen Edit

Meen spins towards his opponents, trapping them in his attack and dealing good damage. It can be charged like Meen Magic, where the fully charged version has Meen cover more distance.

Up B - Elek-Port Edit

Meen engulfs himself in electricity and teleports depending on which direction he's prompted to go in. It can be cancelled if an opponent attacks him while he's still casting his electricity.

Down B - Boom-Port Edit

Meen teleports horizontally, leaving a massive puff explosion behind... though using it midair will cancel the teleportation (The explosion still happens) and leave Meen vulnerable to attacks. The attack's power charges over time.

Final Smash - The Magic Labyrinth of I.M. Meen Edit

Meen throws his book forward while singing "The Magic Labyrinth of I! M! MeeeeeEHEHEHEHEEEEEN!!". If the book doesn't trap anybody, it explodes as Meen exclaims "SHIT!" If it does indeed trap somebody, They get sucked inside the book, Where Meen can pick it up and throw it offstage for an easy KO or throw it at opponents to deal heavy knockback. Just don't waste too much time with it, because the opponent gets freed within 15 seconds (through a random explosion).

Character Conversations Edit

Snake Codec Edit

Colonel: Snake, you know who that is?

Solid Snake: ...


Colonel: He's I.M. Meen. You don't know who he is because he made his only appearance in a DOS game. He's not that famous.

Snake: This guy kinda gives me the creeps...

Colonel: Me too, Snake. I bet he loves to molest good kids. In fact, he collects good kids with a magic book.

Snake: ...magic book? Are you kidding me?!

Colonel: No, I am not kidding. So try not to get caught in his magic book. It might just be your worst nightmare...

Snake: Ugh, that's a scary thought... Creepy.

Role in The Subspace Emissary Edit

I.M. Meen first appears in the Subspace Emissary when he gets into a argument with King Harkinian in Hyrule, declaring that he is the better Youtube Poop source. Then the two fight, with the loser being turned into a trophy. However, the victor revives the loser when both are attacked by the Halberd, which drops some Subspace Army soldiers. The King and Meen team up and fight off the attackers, and then they chase the Halberd through the Hylian fields. After they go through a cave and defeat Glutko, they notice a Subspace Bomb engulfing most of Hyrule. Meen laughs, and the King punches him in the face.

Later, in the Lost Woods, the King gets transformed into a trophy by Dr. Robotnik. I.M. Meen stops the doctor from continuing any further and fights him. Meen wins and blows up Robotnik's Eggmobile, sending the King trophy into the distance. I.M. Meen then searches for it.

In Final Forest, while searching for the King trophy, he gets attacked by an army of Badniks led by Scratch, armed with a Subspace Bomb. Meen wins and continues his search until he finds a Dedede brooch on the ground. Unsuspectingly, Meen gets trophied by Gaston. King Harkinian and Leonidas (who revived the King earlier) then arrive and fight against Gaston and Frollo, defeating them. I.M. Meen reunites with the King and continue their journey alongside Leonidas. Meen still has the Dedede brooch he found.
