Numskull is an astronaut who took her helmet off in space.

She wears a grey spacesuit and a bluish helmet which she is shown to have taken off.


When it comes to money, Numskull has plenty. Brains, well, she got short changed in that department. Numskull loves pretty, bright lights, so she bought an abandoned Russian space station to see them closely. Really closely. So much so, she took her helmet off for a better look. Silly Numskull.[1]

In the videoEdit


Numskull is seen (with a head) that she has taken off her helmet, and her head explodes in a burst of pinkish-red blood. With her eyes in her hands, she is a Tertiary Dancer in the chorus and she's in the third verse in the song, along with Clod, Doomed and Bungle.

App Edit

Introduced in the app in August 2014, the aim of the minigame is to guide Numskull back to her helmet by tilting the device. If she reaches the helmet, she will put it on and give the player a thumbs up. Otherwise, she will reach the same messy end from the loading screen and the video: her head explodes.

Numskull has another minigame which involves touching the screen to destroy the asteroids. If the player successfully destroys all the asteroids, she will safely ride the asteroid, holding a lasso. Otherwise, she will be crushed in between two asteroids and her head will explode again, resulting in failure.
