"Blood covered the floors, people were running away.."The Little Helper (T-05-41), previously known as All-Around Helper, is a cleaning-robot Abnormality. It has a white, oval shaped body with two thin metal legs, bright red eyes and a happy looking facial expression. Its appearance begins to change when a work has been finished with it: It will grow a pair of sharp sickle-like arms. Notably, the sharp appendages are covered in the blood of the prior owners.
- Little Helper's Entry
Its ability activates when its Qliphoth Counter reach 0. After finishing any work, Little Helper will extend its metal blades and shift up and down during the waiting period after the emotional state result. The counter might decrease by 1 after a Normal Result or with a high probability after a Bad Result. After the counter reaches 0, Little Helper will escape its containment room and roam around the facility.
Its attacks subsist of it charging up in place while spinning, then flying across the room it's currently located in, dealing heavy Red Damage to all the employees and Abnormalities in the way, and when being stopped, by a wall or door, it will be "out of power" for a moment before charging up again. This attack only occurs if there is another 'target' in the same room as it.
Little Helper was created by a mass-production corporation that no records can be found of. The goal of Little Helper's creation was to perform basic multitasking for families, such as cleaning, making coffee, and acting as an alarm system. In its last encyclopedia entry, it's revealed that before being captured by Lobotomy Corporation, it arrived in a family's house. When turned on, it murdered the residents of the house. While it originally was meant to clean like the other robots, it's cleaning equipment was replaced by its creator with blades, as discovered in the final observation (see Legacy version). Through speculation, the reason the creator of Little Helper wanted to give to the family a 'present' likely had something to do with their personal relationship with the family.
It is unknown how or where Little Helper was captured, but it is highly likely that it was found at the mentioned house.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Little Helper's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: Bad, Normal, and Good. Completing 0-5 E Boxes will cause it to feel Distressed, completing 6-9 will cause it to feel Normal, and 10-16 will make it's mood result Happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds and its Qliphoth Counter is 2.

- "A white cleaning robot, with distinctive red eyes that looks like a pair of switches. It always keeps everything neat and tidy. "Manufactured by X Inc." is written on its back."
- "It was originally a mass produced helper robot. "An innovative invention that can clean, cook, and even serve as light security, this robot is all you need to keep your home safe and in tiptop condition!" is written on it."
- "It recognizes bad mood as "dirty environment" and will commence cleaning mode. When it goes into cleaning mode it will alert its status by saying "Contamination detected. Commencing cleaning." However, instead of cleaning supplies, it brings out sharp instruments, such as knives and saws, that are installed in its body to carry out the cleaning. Rumors have it that these tools are supposed to be used for cutting and preparing meat and fish, but the commands to call up the tools for cooking and cleaning had been 'accidentally switched.' No official comment has been made regarding this."
- "Due to its faulty pattern recognition and analysis feature, it has determined that the screaming that humans make after it cleans is a sign of a job well done, and a prompt to continue its cleaning."
- "<Audio Recording within the Robot>
??: Oh, it's the new helper robot!
??: Let me see, let me see!
??: Sweetheart, you want to try it? Here, go on and play with it.
??: (CENSORED), hon, I'll be right back after I get the phone, okay?
(Sounds of buttons being pushed)
Helper Robot: Hello! I am your friendly Helper Robot. How may I serve you?
??: Cleaning! I want to help mommy cleaning!
Helper Robot: Environment contamination 70%, filth level mild. Commencing cleaning mode. *Beep, beep*
??: Wow! It’s cleaning! It's clean...!
Helper Robot: Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
The recording stops after a few seconds of a screaming sound."
