"That’s not a flower, order all the employees to get away immediately."
- Meat Lantern's Entry
Meat Lantern (O-04-84) is a small white mound with two round eyes, on the ground of the containment room with a glowing flower coming off of it, the center of the flower is similar to a lightblub or the light of an angler fish. The rest of the Abnormality is buried underground.
Its ability will trigger once its Qliphoth Counter reaches 0. Its Qliphoth Counter can decrease by 1 when getting a Bad Work Result or by finishing any work before 40 seconds (Including interruptions like panic).
When the counter reaches 0, it will breach, moving into a random hallway with Containment Units, where it hides under the ground, with just the flower visible along with some white hairs around the flower. When an employee walks inbetween the white hairs surrounding the flower, the Abnormality will reveal its true form, with giant jaws raising up and eating the employee, dealing an excessive amount of Red Damage (500).
The Abnormality has low HP at 330 and remains in their current location for the rest of the breach, employees will not 'detect' it breaching so they will not attempt to suppress the Abnormality once are in the same room and there won't be red borders around the room where it is. It cannot be ordered suppression by selecting the containment unit when breaching and can only be suppressed by selecting the Abnormality itself breaching. Its HP bar isn't displayed when breaching.
The details of their origin are currently unknown.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Meat Lantern's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: Bad, Normal, and Good. Completing 0-6 E Boxes will cause it to feel Distressed, completing 7-10 will cause it to feel Normal, and 11-14 will make it's mood result Happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 7 seconds and its Qliphoth Counter is 1.

E.G.O. Equipment Edit
- "It always stuck under the floor of the Containment Unit, only showing its eyes and mysterious luminous body above the ground."
- "Nobody knows what it actually looks like. It moves underground, not through the hallway, making it is impossible to predict its path when escaping. For the same reason, its escape won’t be detected."
- "<Voice Record>Lloyd: Are you located nearby the Information Team? I've heard some employees went missing around that area. Would you mind checking to see if there's any Abnormality that's performing spatial interference?
Paul: What? But there's no Abnormality with that ability near here. I haven't detected any escaped Abnormality neither.
Lloyd: Look everywhere.
Paul: Well, Lloyd, there's no sign of any Abnormality, but I do see a small flower on the ground.
Lloyd: What are you talking about? What flower?
Paul: The bud is glowing, it’s amazing. It's strange finding something so green here, when we don’t get sunlight here... It's so bright that some of the other employees came to look at the flower. You need to come and see it... The light is so bright and warm... I feel like something good is about to happen...
Lloyd: That’s not a flower, order all the employees to get away immediately. Do not run away in a group, you have to slowly escape one by one with quiet steps...
Paul: What are you talking about, I thought I told you that there's nothing nearby... Wait, I think I just felt a slight trembling underneath my feet. Is someone fixing the pipes today?
Lloyd: Damn, you’re screwed. Just enjoy the flower..."
