I.M. Meen is the 1st character in the OG Lawl; the first character in Lawl historianical memories.

I. M. 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.

He specializes over constant weaving-in for a quick taunting, as well as his many speedy normal attacks; he works well to confuse and overwhelm his foes.

Special Moves

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.

Move Origin

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

Side B: Meen Speen

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

Move Origin

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.

Move Origin

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.

Move Origin

See Elek-Port.

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.

Move Origin

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

Snake Codec

Colonel: Snake, you know who that is?

Solid Snake: ... No...

Colonel: He's I.M. Meen. You don't know who he is because he made his only appearance in a DOS game. He's not that famous.

Snake: This guy kinda gives me the creeps...

Colonel: Me too, Snake. He loves to molest good kids. He collects good kids with a magic book.

Snake: ...magic book? Are you kidding me?!

Colonel: No, I am not kidding. So try not to get caught in his magic book. It might be your worst nightmare...

Snake: Ugh, that's a scary thought...Creepy.

Role In The Subspace Emissary

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 Shadow Bugs, forming Subspace Army soldiers. The King and Meen team up and fight off the attackers, and they laugh at the invaders' defeat until they see a Shadow Bug-possessed King statue, which they defeat. The duo chases the Halberd through the Hylian fields via the King's carriage until they reach a cave, where they enter and defeat Glutko. Back at Hyrule, though, a Subspace Bomb engulfs the King's home. Harkinian punches Meen for laughing at that incident.

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 vehicle, sending the King trophy into the distance. I.M. Meen then searches for it.

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