Stinkoman 20X6 is a side-scrolling platformer game which stars Stinkoman. This game is based on the classic Capcom Mega Man series. It also parodies the poor Japanese to English translations common to video games of that era, similar to those that appear on the current Games Menu. The game remained unfinished for 15 years, until the release of the final level in December 2020.

The Brothers Chaps demonstrated the game at their talk at NYU before it was released.

Stinkoman wins a challenge against a robot named Tampo, which makes him want to go home. On his journey home, he fights Tampo's brain. Upon arrival at his house, he gets a bowl of chicken soup with a dumpling. 1-Up informs Stinkoman that Pan Pan has been kidnapped, and Stinkoman chokes on a chicken bone. He is determined to challenge the chicken whose bone he choked on. After beating the chicken, Brody, he goes outside and encounters a short wall. He jumps into space to get over the wall, which turns out to be another robot, Stlunko. After beating the robot, Stinkoman takes its stone fist and uses it as his powerup. 1-Up goes out to rescue Pan Pan, and takes Stinkoman's Power Crunch (a cassette tape) through the Lava Zone. To save his favorite Power Crunch, Stinkoman must protect 1-Up from above. His powerup fist breaks while he fights a lava snake named Saargtsson, to Stinkoman's dismay.

1-Up still wants to save Pan Pan, and Stinkoman isn't willing to help, so 1-Up goes to the moon on his own, where he gets kidnapped by a shadowy figure — the same one that kidnapped Pan Pan. Meanwhile, Stinkoman takes a vacation to the Pink Cloud Zone for recreational challenges. The shadowy figure presses a red button to teleport Stinkoman to an icy place, then inside a wall. He blasts a section out of the wall and escapes to the Negative Zone, a glitchy level. There, he finds out that 1-Up and Pan Pan are at level 10, where the red button is. This leads Stinkoman to believe that they red buttoned him, so he goes to level 10 to get revenge. An evil jungle separates him from level 10 (an evil fortress), so he uses his ship, the Stinkowing, to fly through. The shadowy figure tries to stop him by sending a fleet of robotic sea creatures. Eventually, Stinkoman finally makes it to the evil fortress.

Reaching the fortress's inner sanctum, Stinkoman finds 1-Up and Pan Pan and comes face to face with the shadowy kidnapper, revealed to be Z Sabre. Z Sabre attempts to destroy Stinkoman so that he can become "the guy", but 1-Up tosses Stinkoman his Power Crunch, powering him up and allowing him to defeat Z-Sabre. Refusing to admit defeat, Z Sabre unleashes his "pet", Mecha-Trogador, but Stinkoman destroys the robot and escapes with the others as the fortress collapses. With Mecha-Trogador destroyed, the crystals powering him are freed, and 1-Up and Stinkoman propose keeping them out of the wrong hands as a potential sequel or animated series, with Marzi-Mei and Cheatball wanting to join. Unbeknownst to them, Z Sabre has survived the fortress's destruction, and now has a mouth.

Easter Eggs

  • Hover your mouse below "Controls" on the main menu to access the Stinkomanual.
    • On slower connections, the words "loading manuél" appear while the Stinkomanual loads.
    • As of the Level 10 Update, the Stinkomanual is now a regular menu option
  • Wait long enough at the title screen to see an intro cinematic.
  • Stay still long enough and Stinkoman will yawn.
    • On the Level 4 stages, after yawning Stinkoman will rest against his giant fist.
    • On the Level 5 stages, 1-Up will fall asleep and blow a snot bubble.
    • On the Level 7 stages, Stinkoman will shiver and eventually freeze (this costs you one unit of energy.)
  • You can find various invisible platforms if you jump around on different parts of the levels.
  • Upon completing the end credits, a link for the HD uncompressed version of the intro appears.
