The Child is the son of the Duplicator. He is often seen with his father, yet also enjoys sneaking around alone to spy on others. He is fond of the Bunny, yet he shows no emotion to the Lizard. The Child is described as a "light-weight youngster" in the game.
The Child's light weight, combined with his balloon, allow him to run on crumbling tiles without dislodging them. However, when he jumps, the sudden force is enough to knock them loose.
The Child has an average speed at 10m/s.He also has low maneuverability, which sometimes makes it difficult for him to move around.
The Child floats down slowly, so if he can get enough height, he can jump a long ways. His jumps are not normally very high, but if he jumps multiple times in a row, he gets a little more height with each jump. On the third jump, he will jump 10% higher and ~41% farther. This is because he is trying to imitate the Bunny.
The Child has one unlockable costume, a Halloween costume.
The Child's Halloween costume is unlocked by beating the Low-power Tunnel. Alternatively, it can be bought in the shop for 750 power cells. The Child's costume is meant to be a handmade ghost costume. When the Halloween costume is equipped, the Child wears a white sheet over nearly all of his body, except his feet, with one hole in it for his eye so he could see. His balloon is white as well.
The character description for the costumed Child says, "He worked very hard on this costume. Pretend to be scared, ok?" This description revealed that he made it himself.
