Epic Mickey Wiki
This article is about the Blot, the main antagonist of the game and the final boss. For other uses of the word "Blot", see Blot (Disambiguation).

The most devastating enemy ever unleashed upon Wasteland, the Blot is more than just a garden-variety villain. The Blot is practically a force of nature, rampaging at will through Wasteland and inflicting carnage and catastrophe wherever he (it?) goes.

Epic Mickey: The Graphic Novel

The Blot is the main antagonist of Epic Mickey and acts as its final boss. It was created with a mixture of Paint and Thinner by Mickey Mouse. The Blot cannot be befriended with paint or destroyed with thinner and is the most dangerous enemy Mickey can encounter. Thinner does, however, cause the Blot to temporarily melt, as seen in the game's intro, but it can later reform into its original state. The Blot was destroyed by the fireworks of Dark Beauty Castle, making it one of the very few blot-based creatures to be destroyed physically.

He is voiced by Frank Welker.


A long time ago, Mickey Mouse inadvertently discovered the workshop of Yen Sid, where the sorcerer was finished creating a world where his lost and forgotten creations would feel at home. However, after waiting for Yen Sid to leave, Mickey takes a closer look at the model of said world, where he uses a paintbrush to create a small model of himself. The model turns black and melts slightly, so Mickey, believing more paint will make it more lively, keeps making it bigger and bigger until it forms into the Blot, an evil monstrosity who tries to attack Mickey, but the mouse accidentally spills paint on the model and grabs a sponge and splashes the Blot with thinner, seemingly erasing the beast. Hearing Yen Sid approaching, Mickey tries to clean up (in vain) and accidentally knocks over the paint thinner onto the world model. He escapes through the magic mirror to his home, believing this will all just be a silly memory. Unfortunately, part of the Blot was still in the sponge, and it escapes through a portal that was created by the Thinner into the world Yen Sid created.

Upon its arrival in the Wasteland, the Blot would become a major threat as it began to ruthlessly absorb the paint of various toons, leaving only thin, inert husks in its wake. Having no real heart, it hungrily tried to gain power instead. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit stepped up to defend his world from this menace, and the Blot Wars began.

Unfortunately, the Blot wins, partially due to the Mad Doctor's betrayal of his comrades. However, Oswald and his wife, Ortensia, refused to give up. They fought the Blot again on Mickeyjunk Mountain. Using the Jug from the Thinner Disaster, the two attempt to trap the Blot inside. However, Ortensia sacrificed herself protecting Oswald from the Blot and is turned into an inert statue. Oswald finally seals the Jug with a cork, imprisoning the Blot.

Sadly, this isn't the end of the ordeal. The Blot isn't completely sealed. This allows it to spawn countless minions, including a second-in-command. Oswald finally surrenders, devoting himself to guard the Jug, making sure the true Blot never escapes.

In Epic Mickey[]

After defeating the Shadow Blot on the Mickeyjunk Mountain Summit, Mickey and Gus rush to the Jug to help Oswald seal the blot in. There Oswald reveals that the Blot they fought was just a creation of the real Blot. He tells them that when the Blot first arrived, he and Ortensia managed to seal it in the Jug, but Ortensia was lost in the process. Oswald then asks Mickey to be friends. However, before they could shake hands, Mickey sadly reveals that he was the cause of the Thinner Disaster. This makes the already jealous Oswald angry and he jumps on the Jug's cork, ready to fight Mickey. However, as he moves, the cork begins to crack, and bursts open, freeing the Blot. The Blot promptly grabs Oswald and Gus and demands that Mickey surrender his heart. Not wanting his friends to die from either not having the ability to breathe, or the Blot crushing them, Mickey agrees to this. Now energized with Mickey's heart, the Blot creates his Bloticles and begins to drain all of the paint out of the Wasteland.

Mickey and Gus manage to destroy the Bloticles, while Oswald fixed the rocket. Once all the Bloticles were destroyed, they decide to use the rocket to reach the Blot and use the rocket's self-destruct feature near Mickey's heart. However, the Blot uses its Bloticles to destroy the rocket (as it was made of paint due to budget issues), and the Rocket crashes into Dark Beauty Castle. Luckily, Oswald has a plan to launch three sets of fireworks at the Blot. Mickey manages to activate all three fireworks sets while Oswald distracts the Blot, but just as they are ready to launch them, the Blot swallows Oswald and Gus, forcing Mickey to jump into the Blot to save them. While inside the Blot, Mickey reunites with Gus, and they find Mickey's heart, where it's revealed that once the Blot regains its strength, it will use Mickey's heart to enter his world. Mickey manages to free his heart by destroying the Bloticles holding it suspended. Oswald grabs Mickey's heart, but after a brief moment's hesitation, willingly gives it to Mickey. Oswald then activates the fireworks, destroying the Blot once and for all. The Blot's destruction results in a rain of paint that undoes the damage done to Wasteland and revives Ortensia.

In Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two[]

The Blot briefly appears in the introduction of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two in Yen Sid's retelling of Mickey's heroic acts from the first game. The destruction of the Blot is revealed to have resulted in the creation of additional Blotlings throughout Wasteland. While many are congregated in areas like Blot Alley, some are employed controlling the Mad Doctor's new Beetleworx, now called Blotworx. The original Blot also has an entire location dedicated to him and his second-in-command, run by Abe, and created by Gremlin Prescott. He also appears briefly as an illusion in the Mad Doctor's sympathetic song, "I'm Falling Apart" after Mickey and Oswald defeat the Blotworx Dragon. He is mentioned therefore after that.


The Bloticles[]

The Blot isn't fought directly, rather Mickey fights parts of him. These parts are called Bloticles, and they are in every hub world in the game, Mean Street included. The tentacles will frequently grow boils, and Mickey must either use Thinner or Paint (it doesn't matter which) or the Spin Move on these boils in order to destroy them. Continue doing this to every Bloticle in every hub world to initiate the last two phases of the triumphant fight to the finish. The Bloticles absorbing all of the Paint in the hubs offers the advantage of exposing hidden areas that were previously hidden by Paint.

Dark Beauty Castle[]

Oswald has another plan: Using the castle's fireworks to defeat the Blot. But in order to do so, the fireworks on each tower must be activated. To activate a set of fireworks, Mickey must activate the tower's three gargoyles by spinning them so they will face the floating crystal in the center and painting the faces to activate them. But Mickey must beware as the Blot will attack him with its claws while he does so, and he can deal heavy damage. After activating all three fireworks sets, the stage is set for the final showdown. This is how the Blot is destroyed by Oswald.

Inside the Blot[]

The Blot has swallowed Oswald and Gus, forcing Mickey to venture into the Blot to save them. Upon venturing deeper into the Blot, Mickey reunites with Gus and they discover Mickey's heart and realize the Blot plans to use Mickey's heart to enter his world once it regains its strength. To defeat the Blot, Mickey must destroy all four Bloticles suspending Mickey's heart. This is similar to the previous battles in the hub worlds, but now Mickey faces dark remains of characters who were consumed by the Blot. These new enemies cannot be defeated, but will disappear when a Bloticle is destroyed. Once all four Bloticles are destroyed, Oswald launches the fireworks and kills the Blot, triggering the end cutscene and finishing the game.

The Phantom Blot[]

Early on in development, the Blot was referred to as the Phantom Blot, the name of the 1930s comic character. Though the name was changed, some inspiration from the original character still remains. Many concept art pieces depict a larger, more devilish Blot with glowing red eyes as opposed to the typical green ones. Some pieces depicted him with a more skeletal form, while others showed him with a variety of animal-like features such as dragon wings and tentacles.

Oswald and the Blot[]

When Oswald was set to be the game's villain before ultimately being redeemed by Mickey, the Blot was planned to be under Oswald's control.[1][2] However, Oswald's character was reworked by recommendation of John Lasseter, the former chief creative officer at Pixar, thus resulting in Oswald's connection to the Blot being severed. Due to various early concept art surfacing of Oswald merged with the Blot, fans have speculated that Oswald was initially planned to turn into the Blot, but this has been denied by the game's creative director, Warren Spector.[1] This in contrast to a statement made by concept artist Don Hamilton, the artist behind much of the Oswald Blot concept art, who claimed that Spector told him that “Oswald’s jealousy grows and grows until he becomes this monster,” though he may have meant figuratively.[3]

Over the years, fans have commonly referred to the Oswald Blot depicted in concept art as the Storm Blot, though canonically, this name refers to the final version that appears in Epic Mickey and not any particular early iteration. This is evidenced by various dialogue in the sequel.


  • The Blot bears a strong resemblance, in both appearance and sheer power, to a classic Disney villain from Fantasia: Chernabog.
  • It also bears a resemblance to the Marvel Comics villain, Venom, as well as Hexxus, the main antagonist of FernGully: The Magical Rainforest.
  • The confusion between the names of the Blot and Phantom Blot are enhanced by the facts that in a lot of foreign translations, the Shadow Blot gets the country's name for the original Phantom Blot (Fantôme Noir in French, Macchia Nera in Italian). Also, in the Graphic Novel, he is mistakenly called the Phantom Blot, while the Shadow Blot is named Blot Shadow.
  • The Blot's appearance and the way it captures Mickey's Heart is similar to the Heartless of the Kingdom Hearts series.
  • In Epic Mickey 2, using Thinner in Mean Street North on the south wall of the cinema creates holes in the shape of the Blot's face.
  • One piece of concept art depicts the Blot in a dragon-like form, possibly a reference to that of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty's climax.
  • The Blot, despite being a monster that feeds on paint, actually appears to be somewhat reasonable, as it returned Mickey's friends (Oswald and Gus) to him upon being given the latter's heart.
  • The Blot was originally going to have red eyes, similar to the red-eyed Blotlings Mickey encounters after his fight with the Shadow Blot, but they were later changed to green eyes.
  • In 2019, the Blot made it's only ever appearance outside of Epic Mickey, showing up in a Norwegian Donald Duck comic called "The Blot and the Blob". This was also the first piece of Epic Mickey media to be officially released by Disney in the years since the release of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
  • The blot originally had wings in the earlier stages of the game, as depicted in certain concept arts, and the Blot’s in-game model contains animated wings in the rig, however these have no mesh attached. This suggests the wings were cut fairly late into development.
