About

King Dice is a villainous character in the run-and-gun platformer game Cuphead. Since the game's release, the character has been depicted in numerous examples of fan art and various meme templates.

Origin

King Dice appears in Cuphead, which was released September 29th, 2017.[1] He plays the devil's right hand man and the gatekeeper to the devil, only allowing the protagonists to pass him when they have defeated every boss prior to him. Notably, in his area, "The Die House," a jazz song plays (shown below). He also is the game's penultimate boss.



I'm Mr. King Dice, I'm the gamest in the land.
I never play nice, I'm the Devil's right hand man!
I can't let you pass, 'cuz you ain't done everything.
Bring me those contracts, c'mon, bring 'em to the King!
If you haven't finished your task, haven't worked assiduously,

Spread

Shortly after the game's release King Dice became a prominent figure in the Cuphead fandom. People quickly commented on the difficulty of his boss battle, as he has several mini-bosses before him, and he has a dice system that can either be advantageous or harmful to the player depending on the number the players rolls.[2] Additionally, players connected with the character in different ways. For example, a sexual piece of fan fiction was uploaded to archiveofourown[3] by user titanhasaplan on October 10th, 2017. The character has also appeared in various jokes. For example, on October 9th, Twitter user @Just_Sadia[4] uploaded a King Dice Roll Safe parody referencing game journalist's infamous difficulty with the game, gaining over 14,000 retweets (shown below). A piece of fan art posted the same day by Tumblr user Wonderweird has the character make a sexual pun gained over 8,000 notes (shown below, left).
