Cuphead and Mugman don’t act like adults, but that’s to be expected since most cartoon characters don’t act like adults. Consequently, maturity is not an accurate indicator of these characters’ ages. Studio MDHR, the developer, provided an answer that should satisfy most people curious about the characters’ ages.
How old are Mugman and Cuphead?
While they don’t mention their age directly, we know they’re over 18 thanks to a tweet from Studio MDHR. asked a Twitter user Studio MDHR via Twitter whether Cuphead and Mugman were kids or adults. Studio MDHR responded that Cuphead and Mugman were more like “kids.”

Studio MDHR would have said that if they were just children, but the specification of “adults” in the word “kidults” suggests that they acknowledge adulthood while showing their respect for the childlike nature of both. We can assume that adults behave like children or have childlike interests. So you’re over 18, the age at which someone is considered an adult. Perhaps the studio will give credit when Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is released, but that remains to be seen.
