Cuphead inside of The Elder Kettle.

Not to be confused with Elder Kettle the character.

The Elder Kettle is where the player starts the game and is also where Cuphead, Mugman, and Elder Kettle live. When you start a new Cuphead game, Cuphead will start here and run to Elder Kettle. He will then give you a potion which allows you to shoot. Then you can access the tutorial level can be played thanks to the Inkwell on the Elder Kettle's table.


  • In early demos of Cuphead, the house the tutorial takes place in was in the shape of a cup.
