C'mon, Mug! We have to find the Elder Kettle! He'll know what to do!

Cuphead is the titular main protagonist of Cuphead. He is Mugman's best friend and brother, and when the two end up in the devil's Casino, they accidentally lose their souls to the Devil.

Notable Techniques

  • Dash: Cuphead propels himself forward quickly to dodge or cover long distances without falling.
  • Peashooter: An average damage weapon with good range. It has a light blue color and looks like a laser beam. The standard issue weapon that is given to Cuphead and Mugman at the beginning of their journey. It travels straightforward at a high velocity
  • EX Move: Varies depending on the current bullet type.
  • Supers:
    • I: Cuphead shoots an energy beam made of liquid at his foes in a horizontal direction.
    • II: Cuphead crosses the astral plane and temporarily becomes invulnerable.
    • III: Cuphead summons a spirit that is more muscular but otherwise similar to him that goes continuously upward while spinning and damaging enemies.
  • Parry: Cuphead slaps pink enemies/projectiles/objects which gives him a short boost upward and increase his Super Meter.
  • Alternate Bullets:
    • Spread: It is a high damage spread gun that works best if you can get close to your target. Shots disappear after a short distance.
    • Chaser: It fires small, slow-moving projectiles that home in on the nearest target. Deals about half the damage compared to Peashooter.
    • Lobber: It fires a lobbed projectile that arcs upwards, and falls back down and bounces on the floor until it bounces twice and pops on the third contact of the floor, deals great damage, but has limited range, each shot deals about two times more than Peashooter.
    • Charge: It is a high-damage, high-velocity shot that requires the player to hold down the firing button for maximum effectiveness. It has an orange color and looks like a wave for the uncharged projectile and two waves twirling each other for the charged projectile. Releasing the shoot button before the charge is complete will fire a small, light damage projectile.
    • Roundabout: It fires a boomerang-like projectile that moves in the direction it is fired for a moment, but proceeds backwards for a long distance at a much higher velocity.
  • Resurrection: Can be resurrected if killed next to Mugman, or resurrect back to the start of a a battle if both brothers are defeated.
  • Parry Sugar: Parry Sugar allows Cuphead to automatically parry attacks when they make physical contact with him.
  • Smoke Bomb: Smoke Bomb allows Cuphead to teleport when he dashes.
  • Whetstone: Whetstone deals extra damage when combined with the Parry Sugar technique.
  • Plane: Cuphead can use his plane for ariel combat.
    • Rapid-Fire Bullets (As the plane): Rapid-Fire bullets are smaller than peashooter bullets but otherwise the same. Its EX move shoots a missile that is more powerful than a regular projectile.
    • Mini Bomb: Cuphead drops bombs that deal more damage than regular bullets in exchange for a slower attack speed. Its EX fires a barrage of magnet-like missles that home in on foes.
    • Size Reduction: Cuphead reduces his size and increases his speed while giving his bullets less range and less damage
    • Super: Cuphead turns into a bomb that explodes on contact or after a short period of time.


Weaknesses: Cuphead often acts first before thinking about the consequences of his actions
