"The redemption is not something that changes for you. It is something that happens inside of you."
Snow White's Apple (F-04-42) is a humanoid Abnormality with an apple for a head. She is incredibly tall, with a neck and arms that appear to be made of thorned flower stalks. She wears a long red dress with white puffed sleeves, a white waist apron, and what appears to be a large dress collar of wilted leaves. The head has hollow eye sockets and nasal apertures that were said to have been eaten by worms and birds.
Her special ability will trigger once her Qliphoth counter reaches 0. It can possibly be decreased if the mood result after work is Normal or guaranteed to decrease when Bad.
Once the condition is met, she will disappear from her room and appear in a random hallway or small room of the current department and sprout vines from the floor. Employees will have reduced movement speed and Snow White's Apple will attack them with sharp vines, dealing strong physical damage as long as she is in the same room and they are on the vines. Once the room's floor is covered by vines, Snow White's Apple will disappear from it and appear in another area of the department, repeating the same actions until she is subdued. The vines will be removed by the next day.
Snow White's Apple is the apple from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves". Created by the witch's rage and curse, it was thrown away after a single bite from Snow White, the apple had poisoned her. The apple became lonely, and developed a deep hatred for her. It waited and waited to rot, but never decomposed. As time passed, birds and worms took bites out of it, leaving holes in the apple. All died soon afterwards due to its poison, and their corpses began piling around it. The apple constantly thought about its own existence. After a long time, a dried, dead stem sprouted. Lifeless leaves grew around it, and continued to grow each day. One afternoon, the apple was finally able to move. It thought about Snow White who was sleeping for a long time, and the prince who came to wake her up. The princess which was no longer an apple began to search for her prince.
In the last observation (See Legacy Version), Snow White's Apple realizes that her 'prince' doesn't exist. She simultaneously realizes that she will never stop existing, and that there is no point in waiting around for nothing.
How Snow White's Apple arrived in the facility or where she was found is still unknown.
Snow White's Apple responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Repression, Insight, Instinct and Attachment.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Snow White's Apple's emotional state is divided into 3 sections, bad, normal, and good. Completing 0-8 E Boxes will cause it to feel distressed, completing 9-14 will cause it to feel normal, and 5-22 will make it's mood result happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds. Its Max Work Count is 3 works and Qliphoth counter is 1.

- "......with the prince's kiss, thee apple that was blocking Snow White's throat came out of her mouth. Elves shouted with delight. Snow White and the prince walked on the flowery road to their kingdom and they lived happily ever after."
- "However, there was an apple, molded with the witch's rage and curse. It was also part of the witch herself. Thrown on the ground after Snow White's single bite, the apple was not happy. The apple waited to be rotten, to go back to the mother nature, feeling nothing but hatred against Snow White and loneliness."
- "Was it because of the enchantment? Or had its rage overcome the law of nature? Time had far passed the point where the apple's seeds are supposed to sprout. However, the apple did not rot a bit. Some parts of it completely crushed by someone's foot, the others were full of holes made by worms and birds."
- "Dead worms and birds piled up around the apple. Among the rotting corpses, the apple constantly thought about its existence. One day, the stem has sprouted out of it. All dried up, the stem and the leaves seemed lifeless, but it continued to grow on."
- "Some afternoon, the apple finally moved. It thought about Snow White and the prince. Snow White, just like the apple, was lying for a long time and the prince came, woke her up. The princess who was no longer an apple, set out to find her prince. - Excerpt from 'Fairy tales no-one knew, and could not' (Authorless)"
