The Baldi's Basics series has a few endings that correspond to the decisions made by the Player before they complete the games.

So far, Baldi's Basics Classic and Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash have two endings. All demos and Baldi's Basics Plus have one ending each.

Baldi's Basics Plus

BaldiOffice.png
After completing Floor 3 and pressing the button in the elevator, the Player will go in an empty room presumably Baldi's Office. There are some balloons and a desk. A Tape Player is standing above the desk. Behind the desk, Baldi is standing there and is singing to the Player. Just a few seconds later, the screen starts to corrupt. The game switches to a distorted and randomly-colored version of the BadSum screen with text saying:

After completing any of the challenges, an image with Baldi giving a realistic thumb and a message appears saying:

Wow, you did it! Baldi gives your
performance a up! See if you can
win them all!

At the bottom right, there is a "Main Menu" button, which leads to the title screen once it is clicked.

Baldi's Basics Classic

The normal ending will end with the message, "CONGRATULATIONS!!!! YOU WON!" and have Baldi standing by the chalkboard, like the title screen of the game, but with a simplified color palette. Filename2 speaks to the Player for a brief moment, saying, "Wow, great job. *statics* Please try and do worse though I need to- ████████". The game closes after he finishes speaking.

The alternate ending (also known as secret ending) is found if the Player fails all 21 questions on all 7 notebooks. A tip to get the alternate ending is to collect notebooks slowly, because collecting them fast makes Baldi move quicker. Upon touching the final exit, the Player is teleported just outside of Baldi's Office, in front of a texture that says "You Won! There's room for improvement though... Go see Baldi in his office for some tips!" Behind the text, the Player can see a Baldi head frowning. Upon entering Baldi's Office, Filename2 speaks to the Player for a bit before the game crashes. It is very difficult to obtain this ending as Baldi moves very, very fast.

Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash

The way to reach this ending is very similar to the normal one in Baldi's Basics Classic. However, in this version, the game forces to the Player to reach the exit door in the Cafeteria last. After reaching the last door, Baldi, Playtime, Principal of the Thing, It's a Bully, Gotta Sweep, Arts and Crafters and 1st Prize surprise the Player, and Baldi then invites them to blow out the candle on top of the cake. Once the Player blows out the candle, the entire Schoolhouse will become dimly lit, and the rest of the characters will float up to a similar height to the Player, but they will not be interactive or be able to move at all. The Player will be able to float over the floor to leave the elevator platform, and on either side of the top of the Cafeteria, there will be an entrance to a hallway that leads to the Glitched School that is located above the school. There will be an ambience of extremely rapid ruler slaps at random intervals and volumes, though Baldi is not the source of the sound. Two of the glitched rooms contain notebooks that function normally, though they play a strange remix of Baldi saying "one" and "you" over and over, which also sounds like the "Learn" track. Obtaining these notebooks will not affect the game, but the notebook counter will increase. After the Player gets a problem wrong, a pitched down version of Baldi saying "You need to collect 2 notebooks before you can use these doors." will be heard. One of the glitched rooms leads to the puzzle room. Once the Player enters the correct count of SpoopBalloons, a wall will open to reveal a room with a circle of chairs and a chalkboard, and Baldi saying "WOW!" can be heard. When the Player enters the room, the game will begin to spawn red SpoopBalloons that come out of the walls and follow the Player around making a glitchy noise. Distorted Baldi posters will also begin appearing on random walls.

As the Player attempts to escape the Glitched School, more and more red SpoopBalloons will appear. After a few minutes, if the Player collected 9/9 notebooks, the red SpoopBalloons will keep appearing at a very fast speed that the Player will have difficulty moving, and may possibly glitch up to the ceiling of the hallway. After a certain amount of time passes, a dark win screen will appear, and the Player will only be able to close the game.

Filename2 can found in the Principal's Office, able to be reached after the schoolhouse turns dark if the Player uses the Teleportation Teleporter or types "53045009" on the You Can Think Pad in the Glitched School. He is once again surprised by the Players wit and intelligence in finding him, but is disappointed that they have not destroyed the game yet. He warns them again that something bad will happen if they do not, and the game crashes.

Demos

Baldi's Basics - Field Trip demo: Camping

Field Trip demo V1.1 Ending.png

This ending appears to be a winning screen when the time runs out while the Player survives by constantly putting logs into the campfire. When this happens, it will say "Wow-time you won!" as it will tell the Player their final score and would say at the bottom. This is where the Player get some great rewards based on their score in Baldi's Basics Plus. It also plays a little jingle that is similar to the title screen. However, the jingle plays in a rather different tone.

UpCloseGlitch.png

After collecting all 8 notebooks and entering the functional elevator, a look of Baldi's face but up close will appear, and will congratulate the Player saying,

"Congratulations! You beat my demo!"

Although, for whatever reason, Baldi's voice is glitched out, somewhat similar to the sound of a radio losing signal. After Baldi's speech, Baldi's mouth remains open, and his nose, eyes, eyebrows, and mouth turn completely black.

After some time, the game closes.

Baldi's Basics Kickstarter Exclusive Demo

After completing the third floor in Hide-and-Seek, once the Elevator's intermission screen closed up, the Player will be brought to an empty but infinite black room with Baldi solely idling. Turning or looking back, there is a message which reads:

Some day, you will get the
satisfying, canonical, and exciting
ending that you deserve.


Today is not that day.

A few seconds later, a dabbing Baldi appears and begins to shake, accompanied by a loud bass-boosted sound.

Trivia

General
  • In almost all games, the endings look mysterious and end with distortions and glitches.
Baldi's Basics Plus
  • The ending room is still part of Floor 3.
  • Prior to V0.3, the ending was same as the Kickstarter exclusive demo's one, but Baldi seems more darker because of the new lighting system.
  • The Challenge Mode's ending text has a grammatical error. The phrase "an up" is misspelled as "a up".
Baldi's Basics Classic
  • The normal ending with the old skybox color.

    Prior to the V1.2, the normal ending has a background color of the sky in V1.0 to V1.2.2. It is changed to entirely white in V1.2.
  • The alternate ending was added in V1.3, but there was an error in the coding where the game closes when Filename2 attempts to speak.[1] V1.3.1 fixes this issue.
  • In earlier versions of the game before V1.2.2, the normal ending image lacks the dialogue audio of Filename2, leaving the game to close after a few seconds. This was changed in V1.3.
  • While it seems impossible to get 21 questions wrong without Baldi reaching a speed that the Player has no chance of escaping, the V1.3 update makes it so that Baldi's speed only increases if at least 1 question is wrong per notebook, instead of each incorrectly answered problem making him faster.
  • Through hacking in the alternate ending, it is possible to see the stamina bar, inventory and text floating high above the school outside the map boundaries. Since they do not show up in the HUD in the alternate ending, they are located here. The inventory and the text can even be cycled through.
  • Baldi is missing an eyebrow in the normal ending image due to the compressed color palette and the Baldi image seems to be slightly stretched.
  • Thank you message.png
    In the alternate ending, by opening the scene in Unity, a hidden thank you message from mystman12 himself can be seen. It reads as:
THIS GAME IS SO HORRILY ASSEMBLED I AM SO READY TO START WORKING ON THE FULL GAME AND THAT WOULDNT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE TREMENDOUS SUPPORT FROM YOU GUYS SO THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES

Note that the word "horribly" is misspelled as "horrily" and there are missing punctuation marks. The message mentioning the game being poorly compiled references that they need decompile the game to see it. This Easter egg was also briefly mentioned by mystman12 in the second Baldi's Basics Classic Lost Bits video.[2]

Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash
  • It is confirmed that there is no alternate ending in Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, when the Player gets all 21 (27 including the notebooks in the Glitched School) questions wrong.[3]
Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo
  • Baldi's face glitching out is most likely a reference to the game Bailey's Book House. Where a bizarre glitch can happen that causes Bailey's face to disappear.
