Official Description

Some kid drew this face and next thing you know it's floating around, laughing and making mischief.


Chalkles is a 2D drawing that resembles a distorted scribble created by using chalk on a blackboard. From its appearance, two eyes can be seen, along with something that resembles a mustache and two teeth. Based on the description in the poster, Chalkles' favorite activity is to cause trouble around the school.



Once the player enters a classroom, Chalkles may be visible on the blackboard. If the player stays inside the classroom long enough, he will slowly become tangible. After 15 seconds, if the player doesn't leave the room, he will materialize completely and lock the player inside the classroom for a while. He will also spin around while laughing creepily, attracting Baldi to the classroom while preventing the player from escaping the place. After 15 seconds, Chalkles will finally let the player open the door and leave the classroom. He fully disappears after 10 seconds.

In case the player wants to get away from the classroom after Chalkles has materialized, they can use one of the following methods:

  • Open the door with the Principal's Keys.
  • Attract the Principal of the Thing and get teleported to his office for detention.
  • Teleport away with the Dangerous Teleporter.
  • Walk through the wall using the Portal Poster.
  • Get teleported away by Arts and Crafters.

To avoid Chalkles altogether, the player can use the Faculty Nametag, which will prevent him from reappearing. This item is ineffective once he has already materialized. In addition, BSODA has no effect on Chalkles.
