The Kid, also known as Young Boy, is the main protagonist of the platforming game I Wanna Be the Guy. He appears as an Assist character in Fraymakers.

Character description

The Kid is a young boy who wants to become "The Guy", a position of power obtained by killing the current Guy, his father. He is equipped with the Very Small Gun and a red cape known as the Cape of Heroes, which were both passed down to him by his grandfather, Former Grandfather The Guy, who was once the Guy before being killed by the current Guy. Desiring to avenge him, the Kid leaves his home on his fifteenth birthday in the year 200X to go on a quest to defeat and ultimately become the Guy.

The Kid has the power to double jump using the Cape of Heroes, and he can fire bullets rapidly from the Very Small Gun. However, he is also incredibly fragile and will explode into pieces upon taking any damage.
