Marzi-Mei is the 20X6 version of Marzipan. She is a humanoid figure with an even stronger hippie design than her original counterpart with ankle length hair, wearing a purple hair band, a purple white trimmed mantelete and a purple jumpsuit with long sleeves and pant legs that completely cover her arms and legs. Her hair color, and general dress resemble her present-day counterpart. Unlike Marzipan, however, Marzi-Mei has the appearance of having arms and legs, albeit covered up. She wields a 20X6 version of Carol as a magical weapon, striking down enemies when it's played. Her current look was designed by guest artist Lindsay Small-Butera, while her overall current design appears to be based on more recent kawaii aesthetics and 1990s to early 2000s JRPG designs.

In her original appearance, she was a humanoid with a long blonde ponytail wearing a purple top and miniskirt and pink boots. She might be based on an early sketch of normal Marzipan as seen in the Sketchbook section of the Museum. The animation she does on Main Page 17 is identical to Chun-Li's winning pose in Street Fighter II, as is the "Yatta!" ("Yatta!" is a Japanese interjection for excitement, usually translated into "All right!" or "I did it!"). Her original outfit, hairstyle, and general appearance seem to be based on the anime character Sailor Moon.

She appears in the revised intro cinematic, flying into the middle of a swarm of enemies before playing a chord on her guitar and swinging it in a wide circle, destroying them all before posing. In the final cutscene of Stinkoman 20X6, she appears with Cheatball to point out that they should be included in a sequel or animated series which Stinkoman interprets as a by-the-numbers request for a challenge, finally revealing her name in the process; she otherwise does not appear and is not mentioned.

She has the distinction of having the largest gap between debuting and being named of any character in the series, at 17 years, 11 months, and 11 days, or 6555 days.
