Welcome to Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning! That's me!
 
— Title screen of the game.

Baldi is the titular character of the Baldi's Basics series. He is the head teacher of Here School, giving the Player math problems to solve in notebooks before they can collect them. As the whole game is not what it first seems, a twist reveals that he is the active main antagonist angered when a single mistake by the Player is made, at least by answering a question wrong in the You Can Think Pad.

Description

Baldi is a poorly modeled CGI character with an appearance as that of a seemingly bald human figure with long, skinny fingers, pale skin, red lips, and what seems to be a singular copper strand of hair on his head. He wears a long-sleeved green shirt, blue jeans, and light brown shoes. Even though he has no visible ears, the description mentions that Baldi has an excellent sense of hearing.

Strangely enough, Baldi's facial expression while chasing the Player, while heavily compressed and distorted, is neutral and not one of anger.

Personality

2090D38F-E8F7-48A3-9F98-EE9E69A8DFF5

Baldi catching the Player.

Baldi is known for his eerily nonchalant demeanor, being mentally unstable, and his hidden dangerous and murderous persona. He carries a facade of friendliness and a relaxed demeanor, though it most likely is his default mental state. He warmly greets students and uses positive reinforcement when they correctly answer his questions. He loves math, and believes everyone else does. His love for the subject is so strong that when other people fail to answer a math question, his psyche shatters and he undergoes a disturbing personality change. His formerly talkative and affable nature completely disappears, and he drastically changes into a cold man keen on delivering corporal punishment for the minor mistake. It is also possible that Baldi's mental stability is seen only when people follow what he wants. He slaps his ruler in his hand like some sort of compulsive habit, and slowly but surely chases his quarry, growing faster the angrier he gets. After collecting notebooks, he gives students a chance to leave the school, albeit in a limited time span and laughs at their escape efforts. It is unknown if he is a psychopath or sociopath, but given that he manages a school, the former is more likely.

Main Gameplay

IMadeItDespiteYourDirection

Baldi at the beginning of Baldi's Basics Classic.

At the start of Baldi's Basics Classic, Baldi happily greets and welcomes the Player to his school. Before obtaining the first notebook in one of the beginning classrooms, the Player needs to solve three math problems with the You Can Think Pad. During this time, Baldi gives instructions and reads out the questions. If all three questions are then answered correctly, Baldi will award the Player with a quarter. To get the second notebook, the Player will have to answer three more math problems, but after solving the second problem, the third question is corrupted and impossible to solve. Numbers in Baldi's dialogue are censored with static noises.
DB5006F9-A059-44F8-9E36-92C07498E55E

Baldi getting angry when the Player answers a question incorrectly for the first time in Baldi's Basics Classic.

When the Player gets their first problem wrong in the You Can Think Pad, Baldi's face will become distorted, making him appear to be frowning intensely, and his eyebrows will furrow. He either says "I HEAR EVERY DOOR YOU OPEN" or "I GET ANGRIER FOR EVERY PROBLEM YOU GET WRONG". If the Player gets all 3 questions wrong on Story Mode, he will instead display "I HEAR MATH THAT BAD". After the Player fails a question, Baldi disappears on the bottom left-hand corner of the You Can Think Pad for any of the rest of the notebooks. Once the Player exits the You Can Think Pad after getting their first problem wrong, Baldi begins to chase the Player through the school, signaling his movement by making a smacking sound by hitting a ruler on his hand.

Baldi is the main threat in the school, as he is the only character in the school that can cause a game over. Unlike other characters, Baldi's movement is a bit different, only appearing to teleport a short distance towards the Player every time he makes a "slap" sound with his ruler. He also has a unique way of finding the Player: if they open a door, Baldi will instantly head for that door. Besides this, there are also few characters who were capable to attract Baldi's attention:

  • Chalkles - When the Player spends over 15 seconds in the Classroom.
  • Mrs. Pomp - If the Player enters Mrs. Pomp's room while late.
  • Principal of the Thing - If the Principal teleports the Player to detention.

There are multiple ways to prevent Baldi from hearing the Player:

If the Player is not seen or heard by Baldi for two hallway turns, he will start wandering in random directions until he notices the Player again. However, when Baldi passes a window and the Player sees Baldi through the window, he won't head for the room behind the window, because he has no eyesight through windows, like Principal of the Thing and Gotta Sweep, as mentioned in one of the posters.

ReadyOrNot

Baldi going after the Player.

Baldi puts 3 subject problems in every notebook the Player must answer correctly. If the Player gets an answer wrong, Baldi's slap intervals become shorter and shorter, thus making him move quicker and quicker. Every notebook (except the first one) will always end with an unsolvable problem, making Baldi's slap intervals shorter per notebook collected. It is worth to note that Baldi will stop moving while the Player is using the You Can Think Pad.[1]

Once the Player has 6 notebooks, Baldi will be moving at the same speed as the Player, and the only way to outrun him is by running. At 7 notebooks, Baldi is a lot faster than the Player even when running. The only way to get away from him then is by using a BSODA or getting pushed by 1st Prize or Gotta Sweep (note that some pushes of 1st Prize and Gotta Sweep can go directly into Baldi).

Baldi's movement can also be slowed down if he is hit by Beans' bubblegum, giving the Player more time to get away from him.

If Baldi catches the Player, he will shift the Player's view straight to his face and he will make a very loud, startling, glitch-like noise. The map de-loads around him and the Player as the jumpscare scene plays out. The Player will then be sent to a game over screen, before returning back to the elevator.

There are several items to use against Baldi for the Player's survival:

  • BSODA - Pushes Baldi away, especially when he is about to fully contact the Player.
  • An Apple for Baldi - Prevents him from catching the Player in full contact as a one-time shield.
  • Dangerous Teleporter - Very convenient to use to teleport in a random area to get away from the close-approaching Baldi even during the final part of each level.

Field Trips

FieldTripDemo-screenshot3

Baldi in the Field Trip demo.

Baldi will appear in numerous field trips. Note that if Baldi catches the Player in any field trip, they will be sent back to the floor they were currently on without any extra items.

  • In the camping field trip, Baldi will appear wearing a camping hat and a backpack. The Player's task is to collect firewood and use them to refill the campfire. If the Player fails to keep the fire going until the timer runs out, an angry Baldi will spawn in the burnt-out firewood, and begin to chase them. He will move very fast and become almost impossible to escape, with nothing being able to slow him down as the forest lacks any useful items.
  • In the farm field trip, Baldi is seen wearing a farmer's uniform. He will only spawn to chase the Player if they failed to reach the flag pole after the timer runs out.

Challenges

In each challenge, Baldi will not greet the Player, instead he will try to catch them once they walk out of the elevator.

  • In the Stealthy Challenge, Baldi only stays in Principal's Office and does not go out. So, if the Player gets into detention, they will get caught by Baldi quickly.
  • In the Speedy Challenge, Baldi, along with the Player, will move excessively faster.
  • In the Grapple Challenge, Baldi moves like in the General Gameplay but he move slight faster.

Other Appearances

  • In Baldi's Basics Classic, this game marks Baldi's first debut, with a role similar to his appearance in the full basic game. Getting caught by Baldi will directly send the Player back to the main menu. In the alternate ending where the Player meets Filename2, Baldi will be seen inside his office stretching out distorted.

Baldi in Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash.

  • In Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, Baldi remains the same like in the original classic version, but wears a party hat (which jumps each time when slapping his ruler in his hostile state) for the celebration of the game's 1st anniversary. As soon as the Player reaches at the last exit door in the Cafeteria, Baldi and the rest of the school characters will appear to shout a surprise for the Player. Baldi then encourages the Player to blow out the birthday cake's candle, which actually accesses the Player to the Glitched School.
  • In Baldi's Basics: Field Trip, Baldi will first appear standing next to "his" bus. Later on at the forest, before he "leaves" to set up the bear traps, Baldi tells the Player to gather firewood for the fire. Getting caught by Baldi in this demo results in a game over.
LetsPlayHiAndSeek

Baldi from the start of the Public Demo.

  • In Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo, Baldi will greet and willing to play "hide-and-seek" with the Player in his normal talkative way, then begins his chase when the Player walks far away from him. As part of one of the random events, Baldi's ruler breaks, so that the Player can't hear him coming for a short period of time. Once the Player has found the 8 notebooks and triggered 3 of the exit elevators, Baldi will gradually go faster and faster until he goes so fast, he is impossible to run away from. Which means that the Player has to hurry to reach the final exit.
    Screen Shot 2020-03-07 at 6.52.17 PM

    Baldi in the Kickstarter exclusive demo on floor 3.

  • In Baldi's Basics Kickstarter Exclusive Demo, Baldi acts mostly the same as in the public demo, except that when the Player makes a noise, such as opening a door or getting attacked by Chalkles, there is a new implemented feature when an image of Baldi's head appears in the corner of the screen indicating whether he now knows where the Player is.


Slap Interval

Baldi has a certain "slap interval" when he chases the Player. The slap intervals differ between different versions of the game.

Baldi's shortest slap interval is one smack every second, and the intervals get shorter by 0.25 seconds for every answer the Player gets wrong. However, if Baldi is going faster than his minimum speed, he will cool down to his maximum slap interval, which is dependent on the number of notebooks collected.

Trivia

General
Baldi strange terror from the deep

Baldi in Strange Terror From The Deep.

  • Baldi makes a guest appearance as one of the enemies in the Indie horror game Strange Terror From The Deep, with mystman12 providing the voice dialogue for him.[2]
    • Baldi's "Thanks for playing! Come back soon!" quote is later reused for the public demo and Kickstarter exclusive demo.
  • The audio for Baldi smacking his ruler was made by mystman12 slapping his hand with a plastic ruler even though Baldi uses a wooden one in the game.[3]
  • Despite the Principal of the Thing being the official principal, Baldi refers to the school as "his" Schoolhouse. It is possible that he owns the schoolhouse with the Principal of the Thing managing it.
  • mystman12's first drawings of Baldi were from a set of comics he made named Baldimore.[4]
    • Baldi has a son[5] and a wife[6] in mystman12's old comics, but mystman12 has said that he does not know which facts about Baldi are still canon.
    • He called this comic as Baldimore because he was bald, his name was Baldi, he always wanted more food and he lived in Baltimore. The name of this comic was based on the ideas in his childhood.[7]
  • mystman12 said that he might make it canon for Baldi's last name to be Baldimore after making his Mii for him.[8]
  • Originally, Baldi had a blue shirt instead of a green one.[9]
  • Baldi is 29 years old.[10]
  • Baldi's birthday is on June 3.[11]
  • mystman12 originally intended for Baldi to teach more subjects than just math, but due to timing constraints in the Meta Game Jam, and also to make it more fair to international players, he ultimately decided to use only one subject for the original version.
    • It is possible that more subjects may be added in the full game.
  • Baldi's appearance has a resemblance to Gregory from the "Gregory's Room" video that claimed to be a "rare 1999 Nick Jr. pilot" (which it is not). The only differences for the connection that Gregory has ears and lacks a nose.
  • It is possible Baldi liking apples is inspired by the stereotype of teachers loving apples.
  • Baldi's voice was inspired by the character Waluigi from the Super Mario franchise.
  • Baldi is possibly named after the 1995 strategy game: Baldies.
  • The overall image of Baldi giving thumbs up when the game is downloaded over hundred-thousand times is a reference to Sonic Schoolhouse's image screen when beating the level with all 10/10 correct answers.
  • Spoken by mystman12 during his livestream, some lines have references to other media:
    • The line where Baldi says "FUS RO DAH!" is a reference to one of the dragon shouts from the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
    • Another Baldi's line "Hadouken!" is a direct reference to the 1990's video game: Street Fighter in which the character Ryu will shout the same phrase when using one of his special moves.
    • Baldi's "Open Salami!" line is one of the Mario's voices from the game Super Mario Sunshine.
  • Baldi's waving animation was actually a mistake, but it was used in the game due to its creepier appearance.[12]
  • The variant of Baldi with the camping suit was planned to have a plush and an action figure. But they, along with the Arts and Crafters beanie plush were all cancelled for unknown reasons.
Full Game
  • Baldi's description in the Principal's Office has a misspelling of 'incredible'. It is spelled as "increible" instead.
  • It is possible to use Baldi's incredible hearing to trick him into moving in the wrong direction. With blue doors, the Player can simply open them, then move away from them in the opposite direction of Baldi. Baldi will move in the direction of the door and then move around randomly.
    • Of course, opening any other door after the first one will cause the trick to fail, as Baldi will follow that door sound instead. Crossing Baldi's line of sight in the meantime will cancel the effect as well, and this happens even through closed swinging doors. This makes the trick difficult to pull off sometimes.
  • By hacking the game and going noclip and out of the school, Baldi will always try to pass the wall until the Player gets back to the school. In other words, Baldi cannot go through walls.
  • Giving an apple to Baldi will make him happy, but he still tries to get the character. This could be because he takes the apple from the Player's inventory.
  • Many people think that Baldi says "You failed all seven notebooks!". However, mystman12 himself has confirmed it is "found" and not "failed," and he was completely unaware of the debate prior to being questioned about it.[13]
Classic Edition
  • Before V1.3, if the Player gets 12 or more questions wrong, Baldi will go so fast that his ruler sound effect will glitch, and no matter how far away he's from them, he will immediately know where they are (even if they're using the Baldi Anti Hearing and Disorienting Tape item), and he will catch the Player in about 3 to 5 seconds (unless the Player gets lucky). This means that it is not possible to escape him once this happens. As of V1.3, this was fixed and it is now limited to only 1 speed amp per notebook (though if the Player gets two or three questions wrong in a notebook, Baldi's speed will temporarily increase beyond one amp before slowing back down to the proper next increment).
  • Baldi's jumpscare sound was made when mystman12 imported a non-audio file into Audacity as "Raw Data", but he doesn't remember what settings he used to get the sound.[14]
  • mystman12 has revealed that at some point during development, Baldi had an unused dialogue file with a "parrot noise" at the end of the line in a reference to Ms. Fowl from the show The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. This file has never been found in the game files.[15]
  • On mobile version, when the Player answers all three questions correctly in the first notebook, Baldi will say "You did great! Come here and get your prize! A shiny quarter!", but he does not give instructions on how to use items as mobile devices don't have mouses and keyboards.
  • Prior to V1.3, Baldi's beginning speed was slower, and his speed when all 7 notebooks were collected was faster. This makes the game slightly easier, as Baldi's beginning speed doesn't really matter as much as his final speed.
    • Also, in V1.3 and later, Baldi's speed upon getting all questions wrong in a notebook is faster than normal, but will soon slow back down if the Player waits for a while before getting another notebook.
Birthday Bash
  • "A shiny quarter!" and "Then, when you find something you can use it on, right click on the object with the quarter selected! That's how you use items, you know." quotes were removed because Baldi gives the Player a Present instead of a quarter.
  • In Baldi's Basics Classic versions 1.4 to 1.4.3 and Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, when Baldi catches the Player, a speeding black wall appears before displaying a game over image.
Demos
  • In Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo, the audio of Baldi congratulating the Player for collecting all notebooks is reused from the classic edition, with the exception the number 8 quote (used for the You Can Think Pad) replacing 7.

Glitches

Classic Edition
  • In V1.3 and later, if the Player gets one answer wrong and the other two correct on the first notebook, sometimes Baldi will go at his max speed and his ruler slap will be glitched (some platforms won't have the ruler slap glitch, as it will be just a lot of slaps). However, Baldi is not dangerous at this time, because he always teleports behind the swinging doors after the Player gets their first question wrong (to give the Player space to exit the classroom and run away), and he can't open the swinging doors until the Player acquires the second notebook. Once they do, his speed goes back to normal.
  • In V1.2.2 and earlier, if the Player got 12 or more questions wrong, Baldi will become intensely fast and his ruler sound will glitch (some platforms won't have the ruler slap glitch, as it will be just a lot of slaps).
  • If the Player walks into any corner in the school, Baldi can't catch them, but they are stuck in place, making the Player's only option to walk into Baldi and cause the game to end.
    • However, if the trick is done in a school faculty room, the Principal can enter and send the player to detention before Baldi can catch them.
  • In the Google Play and iOS versions, if Baldi catches the Player after having all 7 notebooks, his jumpscare sound does not play.
  • Prior to V1.2.2, sometimes, the BSODA will pass through Baldi and not push him away.
Demos
  • In the field trip demo, Baldi will always say "Let's go camping" every time the Player leaves the school, even if going back in then back out.
  • In the public demo and the Kickstarter exclusive demo, Baldi will stick close to the Player if they spray the BSODA at him when he's eating an Apple. This will directly give the Player an instant game over after Baldi is done eating.

Errors

Games
  • When Baldi frowns upon the Player incorrectly answering a question for the first time before starting his chase, his lips seem to break on the sides.
  • In the mobile version of the Birthday Bash edition, Baldi still says "Just click on it with the left mouse button to pick it up!".
Demos
  • When Baldi gets angry at the Player in the field trip demo, the brim of his hiking cap is strangely absent, possibly due to the smaller size of his sprite.
  • In the Kickstarter exclusive demo, when Baldi says "What fun! Good!", the word "good" is cut off.
  • In the field trips prior to V1.1 of the Kickstarter exclusive demo, Baldi's ruler sprite sheets in the camping trip and farm trip switch places.
  • In the Kickstarter exclusive demo, Baldi's wave is choppier than it is in other games.
  • In the version 1.2 of the Kickstarter exclusive demo, he says "Full Game Public Demo" instead of "Kickstarter Exclusive Demo" in the title screen.
