Magic Poof

Appears on the stage in a blooming explosion, like in some cutscenes in I.M. Meen.

Special Attacks

Neutral B - Meen Magic

I.M. Meen fires a blast of his spell. The move can be charged like Samus's neutral B, but it fires automatically after it's fully charged.

  1. Stun Magic - Fires an electric ball that stuns the opponent.
  2. Power Magic - Charges slow, but the blast is much bigger and stronger.

During the final battle of I.M. Meen, Meen's main method of attack is firing spells at the player.

Side B - Meen Spin

Meen spins toward opponents. This move can be charged as well.

  1. Angled Spin - Spins in a 45-angle. Deals less damage and charges quicker.
  2. Dizzy Spin - Spins longer and more damage, but gets dizzied after fully charged up.

At the end of said game, Meen spins away after he vows revenge on the player.

Up B - Elek-Port

Meen disappears and reappears in a different area through sparks, depending on where the player controls him.

  1. Electro-Port - Dissapears a little longer, but less recovery.
  2. Thunder-Port - Takes him higher, but can't teleport in 7 directions, only upward.

Through many of his game's cutscenes, I.M. Meen usually appears through puffs of smoke and disappears through sparks of electricity.

Down B - Boom-Port

Meen disappears and reappears in a different area through puffs of smoke, depending on where the player controls him. Similar to Wario Waft, this move charges automatically over time, but it teleports Meen horizontally instead of vertically.

  1. Flower-Port - Boom-Port will add a flower to the opponent's head.
  2. Quick Boom - Charges considerably faster and teleports farther, but doesn't deal as much damage.

Final Smash - Magic Labyrinth

I.M. Meen tosses his book at an opponent, which sucks him or her up. Meen can then toss the trapped opponent off the stage, or toss it at other opponents for high knockback. The trapped opponent escapes in 15 seconds. If the book misses, it explodes harmlessly and Meen curses (saying the S word).

The game's intro cutscene features I.M. Meen sucking up the two kids into his book.


KOSFX1: "Aaaaaaaaahhh!!!"

KOSFX2: "Eh eh eh"

Star KOSFX: "Wretched child!!"

Screen KOSFX: (I.M. Meen currently has no Screen Ko yet along with Nostalgia Critic.)


Up: "I am the most powerful Magician in the world!"


Dn: "What's the matter, Smarty?"

Character Description

I. M. Meen is the main antagonist of the I. M. Meen educational video game by MS-DOS. {C I. M. Meen is a wizard who hates goody-goody children who spend all their time reading, and traps them in his Magic Labyrinth 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. He is defeated at the end of the game by "Writewell's Book of Better Grammar", which the player finds with the help of Gnorris, a gnome who works for Meen but decided to help the children escape.
