"...That's not a flower. Order all the employees nearby to evacuate 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 light blub or the light of an angler fish. The rest of the Abnormality is buried underground.

Ability[edit | edit source]

Its ability will trigger once its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter reaches 0. Its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter can decrease by 1 when getting a BadResult.png 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 RedDamageTypeIcon.png Red Damage (500).

The Abnormality has low HPIcon.png 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 HPIcon.png HP bar isn't displayed when breaching.

Origin[edit | edit source]

The details of their origin are currently unknown.

Story[edit | edit source]

Meat Lantern's Encyclopedia Portrait

  • "It's always under the floor of the Containment Unit, only showing its eyes and a mysterious luminous organ above the ground."
  • "There's no way to confirm what it looks like in its entirety. As it moves underground, not through the hallway, it is impossible to predict its path when breaching. For the same reason, its escape cannot be detected."
  • <Excerpt from Voice Records>
  • "Lloyd: You're located near the Information Team right? I've heard that some employees went missing around that area. Would you mind checking to see if there's any Abnormalities causing spatial interference?
  • Paul: What? But there's no such Abnormality around here. I don't detect any breaching Abnormalities either.
  • 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 on about? What flower?
  • Paul: The bud is glowing, it's amazing. It's strange finding something so green here, when we don't even get sunlight... It's so bright, other employees came over to look at the flower too. 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 nearby to evacuate 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 there's nothing nearby... Wait, I think I just felt a slight tremor beneath my feet. Is someone fixing the pipes today?
  • Lloyd: Ah, screw it. Just enjoy looking at that flower all you want..." 

Flavour Text[edit | edit source]

  • "Meat Lantern watches <name> with its mysteriously luminous organ protruding out of the ground."
  • "Not a single employee has seen Meat Lantern’s full form."
  • "If Meat Lantern completely gets out of its Containment Unit, our corporation may collapse."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Meat Lantern and Dimensional Refraction Variant are the only abnormalities that are undetectable during escape.
  • Its E.G.O. Weapon doesn't possess any description. If this intentional or was left unfinished, is unknown.
  • The Game File for its encyclopedia is titled Bunny_en.
