In this headcanon Cuphead and Mugman did not
go to the casino to gamble like in the beginning of the game.
This headcanon is a BendyStraw one that starts off with Cuphead finally being fed up with Mugman's annoyance and he then leaves him as shown in this picture below (In this headcanon Cuphead is very much a douche to pretty much everyone [Except for Bendy once he meets him]
At this point in time Mugman is questioning himself as to what he did wrong.
Cuphead ventures to world 3 at night where he finds a abandoned building (which is Bendy's studio).
Once there he notices that the building is boarded up with planks nailed to the door and a sign that says -Do Not Enter-, so he shrugs it off and shoots off the nails making the planks fall then he opens the door and walks inside. Bendy being in a nearby room heard the planks being shot off, and so he decided to see what was going on. He hid in ink nearby to see who was coming inside his studio. Cuphead then slips on on ink making him fall onto the inky floor. Bendy sees this and he rushes to his aid to elegantly to help him up by offering him his hand. Cuphead then takes Bendy's hand and looks up at him. From that point onward Bendy and Cuphead began to get to know each other, and eventually he kissed Cuphead converting him (changing Cup's appearance but not mind)
into his now inked self.
A month has gone by and Mugman still was unable to find his brother, so he decided to go into town (world 3)
to ask around. He eventually stops by Molly Martini's bar to chat with her about what's been going on. She being the kind lady that she is told Mug where she saw Cuphead heading one day after her shift. Molly Martini's ref
After thanking Molly Mugman goes into the area that Cuphead has gone to. Once there he started to get cold feet (Slightly afraid)
, but he knew he had to find his brother because he cared for him so much, and wouldn't want anything bad to happen to him, so he goes inside of the studio and looks around a bit. Both Cuphead and Bendy can hear him moving around eventually they both meet up on the second floor of the studio (The location where Henry first meets Boris in the game)
. Cuphead questions his brother as to why he came all there here to find him. Mug responds saying that he really cares for him. Cuphead getting quite angry with his brother told him that he thought that he told him not to follow him. Mug responds to him by asking his brother what did he do to deserve such hatred towards him. Cuphead says in response in a cold yet angry tone "Everything", and then he holds up his hand getting ready to shoot towards Mugman. In this moment it's when he realized that something about Cuphead was different. He looked over at Bendy and then back at his brother. Mugman tried to beg while crying for Cuphead to not shoot at him sadly the begging doesn't work and his brothers ends up shooting at his head and his arm leaving him to -bleed out-.
Sometime earlier the next morning Mugman wakes up in a bed all patched up in a safe house (the location that Boris takes Henry in the game in the beginning of chapter 3).
Mugman wonders as to where he is in the studio and he then sees Boris sitting at his table next to his banjo. He asks Boris who he is and Boris responds to him by writing on a note pad with a ink pen that says "Boris" (Boris in my headcanon doesn't talk just like in the game)
. Mugman notices the bandages that are wrapped around his left arm and asked if he helped him. Boris nods in response and then Mug thanks him and tells him that he's grateful, but he also says that he needs to leave this room so he can find his brother. Boris writes on his notepad that he needs to leave the studio entirely because it's too dangerous here and shows what he wrote to him (All of the inked characters in the studio are aware of life outside of the studio)
, and with that said with a slight hesitation Mug agrees with him that now's not the time to go venturing to find his brother. Boris then ends up helping Mugman to get out of the studio.
During all of these events that happened inside of the studio Alice has been watching the entire time through the Projectionist (the projectionist [will look like in the game so he won't need a ref] has a extremely long cord that is on the back of his head that is plugged in to Alice's very own old-fashioned television set) (She's quite the nosy gal who just loves drama in this headcanon [she has no intention on interfering with this drama as it will ruin it for her]).
Speaking of Alice she proformed countless experiements on Henry resulting in his organs being missing and his bones turning into a goopy mess.
2 months later Mugman has been drinking heavily and during one of nights of being drunk at Molly Martini's bar he decided to go the the Devil's casino and not for gambling no no no but to indeed strike a deal with the Devil, and on the way to the Devil he sees King Dice (King Dice will look the same as in the game so he won't need a ref)
to tell him that he wants to strike a deal with the Lacky's boss, so Kind Dice leads him to the Devil's area to converse about a deal. Once inside the Devil notices them and ask why is Mugman there. Mugman then reponds with saying that he would like to strike a deal with him. The Devil's ears twitch ever so slightly with interest, and so he tells mug to go with he was saying. The Devil then asks that he needs to get rid of a inky demon who has taken over Mug's brother. Mug says in a fit of rage that he wants that demon gone so he can have his brother back. The devil grins then he says that he can make this happen but at a price. Mug understands his and offers up Bendy's soul. The Devil grins bigger as shakes Mug's hand soon after he shook hand with him Mug began to change physically and emotionally being fueled by rage (turning him into Vengeful Mugman)
With this new power VMugman flies back to the studio and he blasts the door down and rushes inside to the third floor where Heavenly Toys was located (since that's were Bendy and Inked Cuphead were [with Mugman's new power he's able to sense the presences of people]).
Bendy and Inked Cup both look up at VMugman in surprise. VMugman charges at Bendy quickly making Bendy hit the wall as soon as that happens Inked Cuphead fires some ink bullets at VMugman but it does very little damage. Bendy himself becomes angry and he starts to change form and says "Ya think ya can just waltz into my studio and attack me? Better think again buddy!" in distorted and demonic tone.
(Bendy's butler Sammy Lawrence)
Bendy successfully kills Mugman by time the end of the fight (at least Bendy thinks he did)
and both Bendy and his inky lover both stare at Mug's body.
The Devil's voice can be heard inside of VMug's head by him and he says "You can't DiE yet. Remember our DeAl Mugman." As soon as that happens VMugman begins to change into his second phase to finish the deed.
(Take note that VMugman phase 2 can duplicate himself so only the real one will take damage)
(Vengeful Mugman phase 3 will only appear in the bad ending [This headcanon will have three endings to it])
Who do you think will win Bendy or VMugman phase 2?
recovered Mugman's ref
(He ends up getting closer to Cala Maria [in the Normal ending they end up being very good friends, and the Good ending they end up dating]).
Cala Maria's ref [She's the only one of the bosses besides the Devil that will have a ref since the other bosses don't have a huge role their designs won't change].
Here are some other pictures from this headcanon that I've drawn.
