Hero Overview

Om Nom is the main protagonist of the Cut the Rope series. The player's aim throughout the games is to feed him with candy by cutting ropes and using various gameplay elements, such as air cushions, magic hats, anti-gravity buttons, and other items. Om Nom is known for his passion for the aforementioned yellow and red candies.

If the candy drops off-screen or gets destroyed, Om Nom will groan in disappointment and make a sad face. Om Nom is a very sweet little creature, unless Spiders steal his candy. If the player touches him, he would either do a handstand, look both ways or wave at you. If the candy gets near him, he will open his mouth wide. He is also considered as a very cute character.


Cut the Rope

In the original game, there is a ring at the doorbell, and a box shows up at a person's doorstep. Om Nom is in the box, his eyes seen through a hole. On the box there is a sign that says: "Feed with candy." Upon the completion of the original game, Om Nom is shown on a top of a candy mountain. The banner above him says "Thanks for playing"

Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift

Om Nom reappears in Holiday Gift, the second game. There is not much of a story in this game.

Cut the Rope: Experiments

In Experiments, The box with omnom is riding a truck. It falls out and professor gets it and says "Interesting".

Cut the Rope: Time Travel

In Time Travel, Om Nom is seen in Evan's room eating candy. Suddenly, a time machine appears, showing the year 2013. Om Nom gets sucked into the time machine. As the story unfolds, Om Nom meets up with his ancestors (and for one, descendant).

At the end of the game. Om Nom returns home to find out it was only a dream. (According to the Om Nom Stories, at least.)

Cut the Rope 2


Om Nom as he appears in Cut the Rope 2

In the direct sequel to the original game, Om Nom is first seen atop a mountain of candies. He then spots theSpiders stealing his candy. He chases after them. Om Nom's leg then gets tangled up in a rope attached to the spider's hot air balloon. Later, Om Nom gets unattached to the rope and then meets up with the Nommies.


Only a little information is available about the species of Om Nom. Om Nom is a Nommie, the species of the helpers in Cut the Rope 2.

And also, Cut The Rope: Time Travel features Om Nom ancestors, which might mean that these creatures have been living on Earth for a long time. However, excluding the present Om Nom, there is no evidence that his ancestors had owners. It is possible they could still be kept by Evan, speculating that Om Nom's species are both domestic and wild, then again, no other creatures of his kind have been seen yet in captivity in his time. Om Nom's gender is male. He is speculated to be a child or a baby, whichever pulls on your heartstrings more. The age of his ancestors is unknown, but we can speculate they are all the same age.
