Ninny is the character who pushes the red button.


Ninny loves everything red. Red lights, red flags, red buttons. Always the joker, if Ninny grew up in the Middle Ages he would have been the fool. We know this because even the giant 'world destruction' sign didn't stop Ninny from pressing the red button. Now, no more Ninny.[1]

Ninny appears to be an orange long peanut-bodied bean in general.

In his alternate appearance in National Waffle Iron Day post in official DWtD Facebook page, he appears to much similar to Lax except body color; an orange peanut-bodied bean whose body is thicker than his original counterpart. He has 3 hairs on his head and two front teeth on his upper jaw.



Ninny is seen standing by a red button, saying, "I wonder what's this red button do?" and pushes it causing the Earth to blow up.


Ninny is unseen in his first minigame, in which the game tells the player not to push a red button. If they press it, there will be a cutscene of the earth exploding. If they don't press it and simply wait for the time to run out, a rainbow will appear where the explosion would normally be. He's also an unlockable character for your train station.

Ninny also has a new game in the update where the player must remember a series of buttons to push. If they push the buttons in the correct order, fireworks will appear. If they push the incorrect button, the explosion from his original game appears. This game marks the only game where he makes an appearance.
