"Do you sometimes believe that forgotten memories can be more beautiful? I believe. You're showing me now."
Bloodbath (T-05-51-T) is a skin-covered bathtub Abnormality. On its left side, there is a large pair of eyes which will only open when attacking an employee. Its shower head is replaced by a large hand, dripping blood constantly. The bathtub is filled with blood at a constant level that never overflows. Pale hands appear on the surface, and will stretch when grabbing an employee.
Ability[edit | edit source]
Bloodbath's special ability is "Things you Have Forsaken", which will trigger when a 'Rationalist' or 'Optimist' agent enters its containment room. Bloodbath will open its eyes and pale hands will come out of the blood, grabbing the employee and dragging them in. This will kill them instantly. Afterwards, another pale hand will appear in the tub, which will stack to a maximum of 3 hands. When an agent enters the containment room and there are 3 hands, Bloodbath will always kill the agent regardless of their personality or mental/physical health. This will reset the amount of hands back to 1. The number of hands present will increase the amount of damage dealt in works and the amount of energy produced or drained.
Origin[edit | edit source]
Bloodbath's origin is currently unknown.
Caretaking[edit | edit source]
Bloodbath responds best to amusements work. It likes consensus, hates violence and cleanliness work, and doesn't care for nutrition work.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output changes depending on its mood. It produces a moderate amount of energy when happy and drains a moderate amount when distressed.
Bloodbath's mood gauge is divided into 2 sections, distressed and happy. Under the 60%, it will feel distressed and above it, will be happy.
- "The rationalist <name> employee was working on it. The hand stretched out from Bloodbath and took the <name> employee into Bloodbath."
- "The same phenomenon occurred when the optimist <name> employee was working on it. When an employee with different values worked, the special ability of the Abnormality was not activated."
- "A white hand appeared over the Bloodbath surface that absorbed the employee. Since then, employees in the Bloodbath's containment room have begun to suffer more mental harm than before."
- "As the hand of Bloodbath increases, the amount of energy that Bloodbath produces or absorbs increases."
- "<Caution in Command> When Bloodbath has three hands, it can not guarantee the life of the employee. It seems to absorb employee regardless of the conditions and results of the work."
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Bloodbath is one of the abnormalities which will punish the player by their employees' characteristics and as many others, causing a harmful event when this condition is triggered. Bloodbath will instantly kill any Rationalist or Optimist employees who enter its containment room. Remembering this condition is crucial when sending employees, and always check promoted employees when starting a new day, because sometimes their Life Style can change to another, limiting or increasing the amount of employees available to work with Bloodbath.
Bloodbath only has 2 works which can increase their mood and due to the lack of triggering its ability when being in a bad mood, leaving it would be acceptable to take care of other abnormalities.
If the player needs a rush of energy, like when a part of the facility is dealing with the breach of a more harmful abnormality and needs to finish the day; a low level employee can be sacrificed to Bloodbath to add another hand and try to keep it in a good mood afterwards to get a boost of its energy production. Beware when there are 3 hands, the production of energy will be greater for a limited time before it start to drain a large amount of energy instead, and sending another employee to Bloodbath will get them killed instantly, resetting the hands back to 1. The hands reset back to 1 when ending a day, so even if it was because a mistake or on purpose, try to take advantage of the energy boost to end the day.
