Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout revealed official information on what its bean-shaped characters look like inside and I just want to know two things. Who asked for this and why do you hate us?
Game developer Mediatronic shared artwork on the inner workings of the eponymous Fall Guys via the official Fall Guys Twitter account. I know I’m perpetuating a cycle of misery and suffering but I had to see this and now you have to see it, too.
Here are the Fall Guys according to Mediatronic’s senior concept artist, Tudor Morris.
Well, you asked for it…— Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) September 23, 2020
This is official lore now
• Human shown for scale
• Fall Guys are 183cm (6ft)
• This Fall Guy is happy, look into his eyes
• We can't take it back

Most players have probably been enjoying the game in blissful ignorance, unconcerned about how the sausage gets made, so to speak. Perhaps the furthest speculation would be that the Fall Guys are simply happy humans in suits or a magical race of creatures constructed out of good vibes and sunshine.

Aside from the nightmarish Fall Guys skeleton, which seemed to be inspired by the work of H.R. Giger, Mediatronic declared that the Fall Guys are also 6 feet tall.
The fact that the skeleton has a chin implies that this is an evolution of humans as were proven to be the only animal on this planet with chins..— •Joseph• (@Jwaattts) September 24, 2020
But before I end on a downer, there’s still some hope. Ash Kerins, the principal concept artist at Mediatronic, published a more wholesome anatomy than Morris’s terrifying take.
The size of a Fall Guy is also being debated: pic.twitter.com/R354uY3oqY— Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) September 24, 2020
Yes please, Mediatronic. Please make the Fall Guys huggable, pillow-sized plushies made of friendship and love rather than the cruel laughter of elder gods and the sins of our fathers.
