PETA Roasts Super Meat Boy With Tofu

After using its game parodying powers to transform Super Mario Bros and Cooking Mama into vegetarian-friendly fare, PETA sets its eyes on the indie scene with Super Tofu Boy. Is he really better in bed than Super Meat Boy?

Back in the day recording artists were sure they had made it big when Weird Al made a parody of one of their songs. I'm not saying Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes of Team Meat need validation; Super Meat Boy currently carries an average score of 90 over at Metacritic. Still, parody is a form of high praise, even if the PETA parody does completely emasculate their game's hero.

Super Tofu Boy features 10 levels of puzzle platforming in the same vein as Super Meat Boy, only with a twist. In Super Tofu Boy, Bandage Girl leaves Meat Boy for Tofu Boy, and Meat Boy kidnaps her in response. Here's the game's description of Meat Boy:

Meat Boy is a vengeful, bloody cube of rotting animal flesh. And he smells. After a short-lived fling with Bandage Girl (sympathy dates, really), he became enraged when he was dumped for the tasty and satisfying Tofu Boy. Once Bandage Girl slept with Tofu Boy and saw all that he had to offer, it was bye-bye beef, hello bean curd. Enraged by his loss and lack of ability to compete with the badass that is Tofu Boy, Meat Boy snapped and kidnapped Bandage Girl-because if he can't have her, no one will.

The game is rather short and littered with pro vegetarian and vegan propaganda such as "vegetarians make better lovers." It's also free, which might help some ov3erlook said propaganda.

You can play Super Tofu Boy right now on the PETA website.


    Wow, I don't know why Nintendo and Hudson didn't sue when the other games were made but this guy totally should.

      I agree, PETA annoy's me so much with their idiocy, sue the retards to hell and back

      Suing anyone still requires money to get proceedings started.

      My guess is PETA were deemed harmless (won't affect sales) so Nintendo and Co. didn't bother suing.

    .... wow. I bet the guys at Newgrounds didn't expect this.

    Whoever uses the words tasty and satisfying to describe tofu has never actually eaten it.

    Words don't even begin to describe the idiocy of this childish parody. "Meat Boy is a vengeful, bloody cube of rotting animal flesh. And he smells." that sounds like the rantings of a spastic five year old. PETA, is it really necessary to rip on this game just because the protagonist is a cube of sentient meat? This isn't some faceless corporation that your having a go at, this is just two guys who made it big doing what they love. i swear stupidity of PETA gets worse by the day

    PETA is the whiny, attention seeking teenager of the vegetarian/vegan world.

    I had a girlfriend that was vegetarian. She was a terrible lover and I hated going to dinner with her because of her picky food tastes.

    game plays like shit, wall jumping is all wrong, no weight to it.

    If this is what tofu offers I'll stick to meat.

    Is this the part where someone parodies the parody?

    And then PETA gets all pissed off I suppose.

    I guess PETA believe that turning Vegetarian also turns you into an adulterer? What kind of message is that sending PETA??? Just wait, the Catholic church is going to hear you're encouraging this kind of behaviour and smack you down with 2000 years of Christian fanatacism.


    Um.. well apparently the tofu we consume is incredibly processed and actually inhibits the absorbtion of nutrients from other foods. As far as I'm concerned, tofu is poison and I have made sure none of my friends keep eating that shit.

    Thanks PETA for showing that not only do you not have a sense of humour, but your nutritional propaganda is horrendously misguided.

    I had heard rumors of Tofu boy being a PC playable character. He wouldn't be very good, would probably become tired very quickly and not be able to run or jump well. If you can play as a GooBall from World of Goo, why not?
