Greetings and Salutations!
|—The Crappy Cliff|
He has hosted in every episode so far, excluding the following:
- "4Seeing The Future", where he was murdered and replaced by MePhone4S for a brief amount of time.
- "Everything's A-OJ", where he was arrested and replaced by OJ.
- "Theft and Battery", where he malfunctioned, rendering him unconscious until receiving a new battery, and was replaced by MePad for most of the episode.
- "Mine Your Own Business", where he was shut down for the majority of the episode.
MePhone4 is the host of Inanimate Insanity. Created by Meeple, he appears nice to many; however, MePhone4 has been shown to be shrewd and intelligent. For example, when he decides that the team captains (Lightbulb and Balloon) cannot compete in the challenge in The Arena Of Death, and cares only about lawsuits when Marshmallow is sent to Mars in Marsh on Mars. He enjoys creating harsh and difficult challenges for the competitors to compete in. He has shown signs of benevolence, especially during holidays, as in The Snowdown, he awarded Team Chickenleg in the Christmas tree challenge with their modest tree, as opposed to Team Epic's commercialized tree. He has also been shown to be able to compromise, as seen when he allows MePhone4S to co-host in The Tile Divide. He has a severe eating disorder, as he eats many of the cookies (or other prizes) that are supposed to be given out at Elimination Time! or any other time, and instead, replaces them with other unique prizes.
MePhone4 is a black rectangular phone with a silver casing surrounding his sides. On one side, he has two volume buttons and a ringer switch, and on his top is a power button. He has a large screen on his front which has a glowing blue wallpaper. He has two cameras, one on his front and back, as well as a receiver above his screen, and a home button below it. On his back is a large white Meeple logo.
- MePhone4 can bring back any dead contestant (if he wants to) by simply clicking on a picture of them.
- He can also make any object appear, such as a tree. He used this to create the challenges for Mazed and Confused, Kick the Bucket, and Alternate Reality Show.
In The Crappy Cliff, he is played by Christian Potenza, (Chris McLean from Total Drama Series, Jude Lizowski from 6teen, and Trevor Troublemeyer from Sidekick). However, due to a change in voice actors, MePhone4's voice actor changed to Mark Katz in A Lemony Lesson. Ever since then, this voice has been used consistently for MePhone4. The voice change was given an official canon explanation in Crappy Anniversary, when MePhone4 makes things just like the first episode, including giving himself his old voice. This confuses Pickle, who remarks that the MeTunes update changed his voice the previous year. MePhone4 was replaced by MePhone4S in 4Seeing The Future but returned afterward when Marshmallow, OJ, and Taco went back in time to save him. MePhone4's old voice was featured in the finale, making Paintbrush scream in shock and disgust, yet it was restored to its most common voice after Knife threw a rock at MePhone4 just after he was revived then he turned into his normal self.

- In "The Crappy Cliff", MePhone4 is played by voice actor Christian Potenza, famously also the voice of Chris McLean from the Total Drama Series. But due to a change in voice actors, MePhone4's voice changed in "A Lemony Lesson".
- MePhone4 is the first character to speak in the series.
- MePhone4 greatly resembles Chris McLean from the Total Drama series, as they are both vain and at least bit of sadistic.

- All the Meeple products are currently the only copyrighted characters in Inanimate Insanity.
- As shown in a few episodes and stated by MePhone4, he is a "fat slob" and he has eaten multiple prizes or parts of the prizes, mainly his homemade cookies.
- His cookies, however, are apparently terrible, as stated by OJ, who is the only person to truly eat one.
- According to Test Tube's theory, MePhone4 would actually be the smartest out of all the MePhones, despite his low intelligence.
- According to Steve Cobs, his creator, MePhone4 has a "highly advanced emotion emulator".
- MePhone4 is revealed to be one year old in "4Seeing The Future". He, however, is older now.
- MePhone4 is the only show staff to have been sued by a contestant.
