Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Multiple Cubes of Meat can be collected in a single run:
  1. The first cube spawns an orbital familiar that blocks shots and deals 7 damage per tick (105 damage per second) to enemies on contact.
  2. The second cube gives the orbital the ability to shoot tears that do 3.5 damage.
  3. The third cube turns the orbital into a Meat Boy that hunts nearby enemies, dealing 3.5 damage twice per second.
  4. The fourth cube makes the Meat Boy larger and increases its damage to 5.5 damage twice per second.
  5. The fifth and subsequent cubes will start the cycle again.
