When it comes to money matters, Dunce is about as smart as a stick. So in a bid to solve his ongoing financial dilemma he once sold both his kidneys on the internet. (Anatomy isn’t one of his strong points either.) Selling both kidneys solved his financial problems but created an entirely new dilemma for Dunce: death.
Dunce is a light blue, capsule-shaped bean, bent over so he looks like a kidney. He has red stitches on his sides after selling his kidneys on the internet.
Dunce is seen shaking around holding dollar bucks, resembling playing cards, he received selling both his kidneys on the internet. He dies from the lack of the sold organs, but his death does not happen onscreen.
In most versions, Dunce is the 1st bean to arrive at the train station (when the player starts to play), he is unlocked by default.
Dunce acts as a bar of lives, and he appears when you click the red button to pledge to the train safety. If you use Build a Bean and press Use in Game, the lives will be changed to that bean.
