A Kick in the Right Direction

Edit

       Dough, labeled The Replacement, was a male contestant on Inanimate Insanity II, and the alleged big brother of former contestant Bow. He was placed on the Grand Slams after they won him in the competition but was immediately eliminated after being eaten by Yin-Yang. Like Bow, Dough is unrecoverable and resides as a ghost in Purgatory Mansion.

Personality

Dough is a bland and dull blob of apathy, which is curiously the opposite of his alleged sister Bow, who is notorious for her strong enthusiasm. Dough represents an inverse duplicate of Bow, as almost every aspect of his character is a diluted and tedious principle of Bow's.

Dough even mentions that his perspective is to "copy the past" and "never try anything different." Dough has a strange connection to rhyming as well, while his name itself rhymes with Bow, Dough was obsessed with stairs, bears, dares, affairs and most likely anything else that rhymes with chairs.

While residing alongside Bow in Purgatory Mansion, Dough enjoys mimicking everything Bow does mere seconds after she does it. He still can be annoyed by Bow's constant attention desire, though simultaneously denying his own attention-seeking, which he, of course, mimics from Bow.

His own death has caused Dough to have a rather conscious outlook on himself, as he seems to be aware of his own pointlessness and will even possess non-living objects to find more meaning in life.

Official Site Bio

Have you ever wanted something so bad, and then you got something worse? Meet Dough! Intended as a Bow replacement, Dough does his best to express his own individual identity. Still, he can’t help but come across as a shameless knockoff, nothing more than a hollow and monotonous imitation of a dearly departed friend. So it’s a bit of an uphill climb for him to make a good impression. Nevertheless, while it’s impossible not to compare him to his alleged sister, Dough’s dry, deadpan attitude actually couldn’t be any more different - if only someone cared enough to notice!

Trivia
