"How's the jaw, ol' chum?"
Lord Gob Packer, Death Screen

Lord Gob Packer is one of the mini-bosses fought in Sugarland Shimmy level of Inkwell Isle Two. He is a subject randomly summoned by the level's main boss, Baroness Von Bon Bon, to fight the player(s).



He is a large gobstopper with the red-colored outside shell used as one of the color layers in his so-called "mouth", with multiple inside layers colored in yellow, white, blue, and again white respectively. His center ball is green with eyes.



He will be selected randomly by Baroness Von Bon Bon for the first phase during the battle. Lord Gob Packer flies towards wherever the player(s) are heading whilst perpetually opening and closing his "mouth".

He also has a minion that follows him (which cannot be killed until he's defeated). In Simple mode, he comes alone. In Expert mode, however, he has two minions following him; the second one always follows the first.

When defeated, his layers will break one by one, with the green core layer gaining a halo and floating away. His minions will simply break apart, one by one, and a vibraphone jingle is heard playing. Hitpoints = 180/180/220



  • Along with Baroness' other subjects, Lord Gob Packer's name isn't official. That said, Tina Nawrocki revealed his pet name in a Twitter post when asked by a fan, with each subject's name being a candy-related play on words.
  • In Gob Packer's battle, while there is the red and blue gobstoppers, there is no point where a yellow gobstopper is seen during the fight. But in his death screen, there is a yellow gobstopper. This may be because the death screens were drawn before the battle sprites.
    • However, this yellow gobstopper could be present because it is the last primary color.
  • During his battle and in his game over screen, Gob Packer has six layers. But when he is defeated, only five layers are shown, with one of the white layers not exploding.

Inspirations and similarities[]

  • His "true" form (a single green jawbreaker) is very similar-looking to Sour Bill, a character from the Disney movie, Wreck-It Ralph.
  • Gob Packer's surname, "mouth" movement, and appearance are references to Pac-Man.
