I.M. Meen

Character Description Edit

Ignatius Mortimer Meen is the main antagonist of the I. M. Meen educational video game by Animation Magic for MS-DOS. I. M. Meen is a wizard who hates goodie-goodie children who spend all their time reading, and traps them in his Magic Labirynth with an enchanted book. He sings a song about this during the game's intro, and during gameplay he occasionally appears to taunt the player.

Trophy Description Edit

The title of the most powerful magician in the world has fallen to the wrong hands... hide yo goodie goodies! And for all those Lawl members who are such... fight for your Poopers! Hell his insanity is such he now calls ANYONE a bookworm, and an insane person won't doubt using the power in his hands! By teleporting he can give a very scary and confusing fight. Watch out for his powerful book, The Magical Labyrinth of I.M. Meen... If you ever get trapped in his magic book, I'm sure you'll escape a hundred years!

Role in The Subspace Emissary Edit

I.M. Meen first appears in the Subspace Emissary when he gets into a argument with King Harkinian in Hyrule, declaring that he is the better Youtube Poop source. Then the two fight, with the loser being turned into a trophy. However, the victor revives the loser when both are attacked by the Halberd, which drops some Subspace Army soldiers. The King and Meen team up and fight off the attackers, and then they chase the Halberd through the Hylian fields. After they beat Glutko, they notice a Subspace Bomb engulfing most of Hyrule. Meen laughs, and the King punches him in the face.

Later, in the Lost Woods, the King gets transformed into a trophy by Dr. Robotnik. I.M. Meen stops the doctor from continuing any further and fights him. Meen wins and blows up Robotnik's Eggmobile, sending the King trophy into the distance. I.M. Meen then searches for it.

In Final Forest, while searching for the King trophy, he gets attacked by an army of Badniks led by Scratch, armed with a Subspace Bomb. Meen wins and continues his search until he finds a Dedede brooch on the ground. Unsuspectingly, Meen gets trophied by Gaston. King Harkinian and Leonidas (who revived the King earlier) then arrive and fight against Gaston and Frollo, defeating them. I.M. Meen reunites with the King and continue their journey alongside Leonidas. Meen still has the Dedede brooch he found.
