- Big Bird's Entry
Big Bird (O-02-40) is an Abnormality in the form of a big, round, black, featherless bird, with arms instead wings, tens of yellow eyes (implied to be at least 47), and a sharp beak. It holds a lantern with a wick of melded feathers inside it.
Its special ability triggers when its Qliphoth counter reaches 0. This fluctuates by the next ways:
- By performing a Good Result, its Qliphoth counter increases by 1.
- By getting a Bad Result, its Qliphoth counter decreases by 1.
- Each time 5 employees die, its Qliphoth counter decreases by 1.
Once its Qliphoth counter reaches 0, or an emergency level 2 (Second Trumpet) start, Big Bird will breach. When breaching, the current department where Big Bird is located will enter into a 'blackout', where all the hallways are darker. Big Bird will wander the facility, often calling with its lamp, giving a mark to a random employee in the same department. This is a circular yellow mark that is above the respective employee, slowly turning reddish. Employees with the mark will receive reduced damage. After a period of time pass, the employee with the mark will be possessed and lured to Big Bird. All clerks and enchanted/possessed employees in front Big Bird at close range will be decapitated by it, biting their head off and killing them instantly. During the process, Big Bird will gain immunity to damage.
If the enchanted employee gets out of the blackout department before gets possessed, the mark will be removed. If the camera is focused on Big Bird when walking, it will shake the screen and will be unable to be move for a short moment. Big Bird will continue wandering the facility for other employees if all of the same department are dead. It often tends to seek for enchanted employees.
Origin EditPunishing Bird and Bird of Judgement , who protected the Black Forest from hostile monsters. Big Bird wandered the forest warning people about a "monster" near there. Judgement Bird gave to Big Bird his eyes, so it could see very far away to seek trespassers and protect the forest. One day, someone questioned 'What if the monster came at night?', and Big Bird, worried, made a wick with all of its feathers, stripping itself to its skin in order to create an everlasting lantern to see through the night. Big Bird then wandered the forest, thinking as a solution, to kill humans and creatures itself in a twisted attempt to "save", and ultimately prevent, creatures from being killed brutally by the monsters. At the end, when the forest was about to enter in total disorder, Big Bird, Punishing Bird and Judgement Bird decided to merge strengths to protect even better the forest, creating a new bird, but causing chaos instead. Is unknown when the birds decided to separate themselves.
When Lobotomy went to the forest to verify the tale, they didn't find any "monsters" or creatures: The only thing left was Big Bird.
Big Bird's habit of killing people in order to prevent them from being killed more brutally carries over into X's Facility, where he will try to kill researchers in an attempt to provide salvation from the usually gruesome deaths caused by other breached abnormalities.
Big Bird responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Instinct and Attachment, Insight, and Repression.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Big Bird's emotional state is divided into 3 sections, bad, normal, and good. Completing 0-7 E Boxes will cause it to feel distressed, completing 8-13 will cause it to feel normal, and 14-20 will make it to be happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 10 seconds. Its Qliphoth counter is 5.

Unlocks the Armor 'Lamp'.
- "It is a bird with many eyes wandering dark forests with a lamp that never falls dark."
- "The creature will stare intently and then bite the head off of anyone -no matter how young or old- it encounters. Instead of wings like a regular bird, the creature has long arms with which it can pick stuff up. A small bird that looks like an eyeball always follows the creature around."
- "There is a tale of a beast that lays in deep, dark, empty forest that lures creatures.
To protect all creatures from this large beast, Big Bird made a wick with all of its feathers. With that wick it made a lamp that would burn forever.
With the eternally lit lamp, it wandered the forest warning creatures not to go deep into the forest.
Thanks to the Big Bird, the number of creatures that were attacked decreased. But still the Big Bird felt bad for the creatures that died in the hands of the beast.
Big Bird had a thought, “If I kill creatures first, they wouldn’t be killed by the monster!”
After that, rumors flew around about a monster that would bite your head off.
It is said that the monster stares victims carefully in order to see if they are the beast that lures creatures.
This tale is from a town in <Location Redacted> area. It is an oldest folk tale from the town and it was told by the town’s oldest inhabitant <Redacted>. Although there is a general assumption that the tale was told to prevent kids from going into the forest, it is uncertain who started the tale."
- "The tale was not a lie. “We found the Big Bird in the forest after all. And afterwards we looked for ‘the beast that lures humans'. We looked in every nook and every corner. A month later we concluded, there was no such thing as the beast, other than that Big Bird.”"
- "“The abnormality is certainly unaware of concept of death. Abnormalities in this company can be categorized into two. First, creatures that knows what death is very well and will attack to kill. Second type of creatures are aware of the concept of death but does not have ill will in its attack. This abnormality is neither. To this creature, death in itself is salvation. If the creature ripped the head off of a lost little girl in the forest, it did not commit murder. It saved the girl from a monster.”"
- "“We can’t do anything when the creature has its eyes opened. It stares intently. When it continues to stare… (Omitted) So first we need to put it to sleep. When all the eyes fall asleep, we can start our work.”"
- "In fact, we don't know what Big bird is killing people for."
- "The fact that Big bird can't fly is a huge benefit. If it could, half of the employees would have been headless."
- Big bird‘s eyes and the lamp are lighting up the dark chamber like stars.,
- "Scores of Big bird's eyes point at <name> all the sudden."
- "Sporadic squeals of the bird can be heard."
- "<Name>'s decision to not to face Big bird was very good choice."
- "Big bird is walking toward <name>."
- "A dazzling bright lamp is in front of <name> who has turned his/her head to avoid seeing Big bird."
- Big Bird has been reworked when reintroduced to Legacy, including minor changes to its new appearance, new portrait, as well gaining a 'defeat' animation.
- Big Bird's name may be a reference to the popular character Big Bird from Sesame Street.
- Big Bird, Punishing Bird and Bird of Judgement are the first Abnormalities which can summon another Abnormality.
- Big Bird will escape when other Abnormalities are out. This is a reference to its own story, about trying saving them from being killed by the other Abnormalities, but by killing them first.
