In-game portrait of Me with no Effects.
Me (め/目) can be translated as "eye", "sight", "experience", "viewpoint", "stitch", or "somewhat" in Japanese. If written as 芽 it becomes "sprout".
Unknown, but hinted as 15.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Me (め; eye - pronounced as "may" or "meh" ) is the main character of Me.
She uses her stereo system to "dream". Unlike most Yume Nikki fangames protagonists, Me has more than one room (plus balcony) in her apartment (in the remake). Aside from her bedroom and balcony, she also has a bathroom and a kitchen.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Me has short light blue hair with blunt bangs covering her eyes completely. It is kept in a round bob cut. She wears a sleeveless black dress with a red eye, possibly making a pun on her name, and white-grey shoes.
It is unknown what eye color she has, although one picture on the official ask tumblr shows her with what seems to be red eyes. Also, some Effects (Distort, for example) have red eyes, though this is mostly speculation. It is common on fanart to depict her as one-eyed or missing an eye by an accident.
A thing to note is that the eye on her shirt appears frequently in-game, either in the background, as graffiti, or as an object.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Me speaks very little in the game, mostly to make a point or describe something. M-256's artworks of her frequently display her smiling, though it has to be noted that the smile she wears is not necessarily happy or friendly.
In her official ask blog, Me displays signs of affection to Yuukoto, seems to be in somewhat bad terms with Thomas, and appears to endure her insanity and refrains from going outside her apartment. She is also shown to have a high tolerance towards blood and gore, as she seems to be used to it. She also has a tolerance towards pain, both physical and emotional
In the "dream" world, she seems to go to areas that resemble either parts of herself, memories of her past and other things. Most of the starting worlds are somewhat light or relaxing, but the deeper worlds become more dark and disturbing.
There are many motifs about body horror, eyes and plants in Me.
Another interesting thing is that Me probably isn't her real name.
Past[edit | edit source]
Almost unknown. Some areas and characters may or may not give hints at her upbringing, or why she locked herself in.
