0th Prize is an Easter egg-like "character" making his first debut in Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash.


0th Prize is a poorly-drawn human character wearing a salmon orange cap and overalls, purple shirt, large brown shoes, and holding a yellow-bristled green broom without visible hands. His face is mostly drawn with black pencil, completed with a wide neutral frown, pointy triangular noise, and "teardrop"-shaped eyes with larger pupils. His skin color for his face was originally light-peach but turned brown-tan due to the usage of dithering effect.


0th Prize found ingame.

0th Prize only appears at the end of the hallway from the glitched school's right side as just an inanimate poster wall. With no interactions whatsoever, he was simply used as just an environment decoration.


The original non-dithered drawing.

  • 0th Prize is originated from Gotta Sweep's early artwork, as mystman12 originally tried making Gotta Sweep an actual human-looking janitor in a PilotRedSun-like style. However, mystman12 disliked his result and scrapped the design in the end.[1]
  • His name is similar to and may or may not be based on 1st Prize's.
  • 0th Prize's clothes may have been inspired by Mario's outfit, as both of them look similar. It could also reference an error in the episode Sneaky Lying Giant Koopas from The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3.
  • Unlike the original artwork, the color of 0th Prize's face is same as the broom he holds. It is most likely due to the color limitation to use the dithering effect.
    • 0th Prize's sprite in the game is also horizontally flipped due to the way Unity handles rotation.


  1. "Gotta Sweep could have ended up being a very different character if I hadn't been so low on time! Before just going with the broom, I tried painting an actual janitor in Colors! 3D. I was trying to go for a PilotRedSun sort of style, but I ended up not liking what I came up with." - mystman12. March 30, 2019. Twitter
