Fall Guys Confirms Beans Are Actually 6ft Tall
Be afraid, be very afraid because we have some horrifying Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout news about those adorable beans. While we're used to seeing those pint-sized beans bob around the course, Mediatonic has confirmed its little mascots are actually 6ft tall. You'll never play Fall Guys in the same way again.
Fall Guys is going from strength to strength and has shifted well over 8 million copies in a matter of weeks. Aside from this, it's a popular contender in the esports market and is hosting its first ever tournaments as well as a Twitch Rivals stream. At the centre of this are those bouncing beans, however, it seems they aren't as cute as they first appear.

Posting on Twitter, the official Fall Guys Twitter confirmed beans are 6ft tall. People have become obsessed with the height of Fall Guys beans, but news they're 1.83 metres tall is not what any of us were expecting. Safe to say, players were left terrified by this latest revelation and soon took to social media to share their concerns.
One person wrote, "I'd like to forget everything from the last ten seconds please", while another said, "You telling me, this little jelly bean is taller than me?!". Even the offical PlayStation account got in on the action and added, "6ft?? Damn so... are any Fall Guys single? Asking for a friend".
The idea of giant beans is a baffling one. If this is how tall they are, how big does that make the course? Considering 6ft is above average for most humans, it's easy to imagine a live-action version of Fall Guys. To be fair, it is based on Takeshi's Castle, so it makes sense that beans are modelled on actual people.
This isn't the first time jaws have been left on the floor thanks to supersized fictional characters. As well as the Teletubbies being 6ft tall, there was the horrifying reveal Peppa Pig is 7ft tall. That means Daddy Pig was a goliath 14 foot 2 inches. Suddenly beans don't seem quite as scary. Elsewhere, someone created their own Fall Guys beans artwork that shows them in a muscular, humanoid, form, instead of the portly athletes we've come to know and love.
Fall Guys is continuing to climb as a pop culture phenomenon as more and more fans are coming up with their own crossover skins. Here's hoping they come in XL to fit those colossal beans,
