Bungle is the character who used a clothes dryer as a hiding place.


Bungle was probably hiding behind a door the day brains were handed out. He likes to play hide-and-seek, but is a little bit dopey. Some would say he's the World Champion of hide-and-seek because, when Bungle hides, he's never found. Like the time he hid in the dumpster on rubbish collection day, or the time he hid in the clothes dryer. 'Come out, come out wherever you are, Bungle.' But he never does.[1]

Dryer guy

Bungle spinning in the dryer as he sings.

Bungle is a pink colored character. He makes varying expressions during his stages in the clothes dryer. His size and body shape are unknown.


In the video, Bungle is seen in the clothes dryer, smiling, and making a silence gesture, surely feeling confident. But as the dryer is turned on and progressively builds speed, he becomes scared and eventually dies in the clothes washer. His death is shown offscreen.


In the game, Bungle was initially only an unlockable character, and did not appear in any levels. However, a video revealed that he will appear in an update, and he was given his own minigame. In it, the player must stop the dryer by moving in the other direction. If the player succeeds, the dryer opens and Bungle sighs with relief and flashes a thumbs up. If the player fails, he explodes in a flash of blood.

Bungle also has another game in which the player must turn the dryer off by rotating the handle. If the player turns off the dryer, the dryer opens again and Bungle sighs with relief and shows the player a t-shirt with "I Love You" on it. Otherwise, he explodes in a flash of blood again, resulting in failure.
