|—Double Digit Desert|
Bow, labeled The Forgotten, is a female character on Inanimate Insanity. She debuted in The Snowdown starring in a commercial for Chairs, and unexpectedly joined the game in "Double Digit Desert". After her death in "Journey Through Memory Lane (Part 2)", Bow was killed off the show permanently, unrecoverable by MePhone4, and thus, did not make a return for Inanimate Insanity II. She resides as a ghost in Purgatory Mansion. She is voiced by Taylor Grodin.
Bow is unbelievably moronic and brainless, as she mostly will have no clue about anything, and is very enthusiastic and irrelevant at most times. Bow is almost seen to resemble a typical modern teenage girl, saying "like" and "totally", wearing makeup, and texting on her phone constantly. Disregarding her intelligence, Bow is an exceptionally kind and sympathetic contestant who will always run to the aid of her friends, limited to only Marshmallow. However, Bow has shown to be very persistent about being on the show, as she doesn't leave in "Double Digit Desert". Bow appears to have the power to call upon chairs at random times and uses them with shockingly experienced levels. However, chairs can also be seen as her weakness, as shown in "The Great Escape", causing her to lose the MePhone Says challenge. She has also shown to be slightly skilful and impressive at using a lasso.
Bow has become notorious for her obsession with chairs. The self-known chair enthusiast would constantly advertise her chairs in almost every sentence, but also use chairs to her advantage, such as smashing Apple into the stage by hitting her with a chair. However, after she recovered from her violent and demented state, Bow realised that chairs were "so last year", and ended her chair obsession. Additionally, Bow destroyed a chair in Purgatory Mansion, she might've done it because she thinks chairs are "last year".
