Machinima / Painis Cupcake

Go To
I will eat you!

A famous Garry's Mod character created by the Youtube user RubberFruit. He is depicted as a RED Soldier who moves around in wild, erratic movements; either scuttling on all fours or slithering around like a snake, always with the sound of bones cracking or a shotgun cocking with each movement. When he approaches someone, he says "I am Painis Cupcake. I will eat you.", followed by an unnerving, open-mouthed grin. He then proceeds to violently kill and devour his victims. He quickly became a meme amongst the G-Mod video community, and has inspired several other "G-Mod Freaks".


Tropes associated with Painis Cupcake:

  • Aesop Amnesia: Subverted. If Painis is beaten by another Freak, he'll remember his previous mistakes as well as said freak's fighting style, thus allowing him to defeat them in a rematch as seen in "Painis Cupcake's Revenge".
  • Ascended Meme: In an official TF2 comic, Soldier hallucinates and attempts to eat Scout while loudly proclaiming "I am going to eat you."
  • Ax-Crazy: He’s very fond of gruesomely killing his victims before eating them.
  • Big Eater: He tends to eat people much bigger then himself.
  • Body Horror: Relatively benign compared to some of the more disfigured freaks but his bones make a cracking sound every time he moves.
  • Catchphrase: "I am Painis Cupcake. I will eat you." *Grimly smiles*
  • Deranged Animation: Like most G-Mod videos, Painis Cupcake is animated via CGI stop-motion. However, even by G-Mod standards he will often move in jerkier motions.

  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: RubberFruit meets Painis Cupcake.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: When he comes across Polite Spy, a much less popular G-Mod Freak, he finds himself unable to eat him since he is "too nice to eat".
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Painis Cupcake would be completely horrifying if it wasn't for his ridiculous name.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: In a Doom 2 mod.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Whatever he is, he's obviously not quite human.
  • I am a Humanitarian: Chances are that you already knew that.
  • Implacable Man: Once he's fixated on a target, only death and a Deus ex Machina can stand in his way... and those two rarely ever stand in his way.
  • Leitmotif: "Puzzle in the Caves" when he sees you. Changes to "Demon Mine Cart" when he attacks you. This invariably causes Painis Cupcake comments on youtube videos with those tunes, so much so that said videos ' comments would eventually get disabled.
  • Made of Iron: Attacks that hit him rarely even stun him.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The aptly-named "Painis Cupcake's Revenge" has him go on one against several TF2 Freaks who defeated him in the past, including Christian Brutal Sniper and Dic Soupcan.
  • Slasher Smile: Before he eats you, and he'll do it every time he prepares to eat someone.
  • Super Mode: Is capable of entering an Ubercharge-like state by himself when sufficiently angry (This often triggers the music to change to Demon Mine Cart if it's been Puzzle in the Caves until then).
  • Super-Persistent Predator: If he wants to eat you, your life expectancy just dropped drastically.
  • Super Spit: Sometimes Painis Cupcake is portrayed as being able to spit shovels out of his mouth at a high velocity.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Meet the Painis Cupcake.
  • Trope Codifier: Although he is NOT the first G-Mod Freak, he is the most famous has had the biggest influence on other G-Mod Freaks.
