Bendy is the title character of Bendy and the Ink Machine (BATIM), a "first-person puzzle action horror game." The game "begins in the far days past of animation and ends n a very dark future," taking place in a "dilapidated world of shadows and ink."

The game revolves around the player's alter-ego, Henry Stein, a retired animator who returns to his old studio to find his characters come to life. The visuals have a vintage aesthetic - for example, Bendy's own design mirrors early Mickey Mouse cartoons, including the trademark gloves.

Bendy is the game's primary antagonist. Did you know? Bendy's name originated as a typo. It was a misspelling of the 3-D modeling program Blender, which occurred while saving a file during character development.

Bendy has featured in merchandise, books, animated shorts, a youth novel, and a spin-off game called Bendy in Nightmare Run. He will star in the game's sequel, Bendy and the Dark Revival.
