Vex is the main antagonist of Sackboy: A Big Adventure. He's an almost mythical entity born of chaos and fear.


Sackboy: A Big Adventure

The dastardly Vex (a near-mythical being born of chaos and fear, no less) kidnaps Sackboy’s friends (other Sacklings who reside in the town) and forces them to build his Topsy Turver

This most deadly diabolical device will transform Craftworld from a fantastical land of pure imagination and innocent dreams… into a torrid, barren eyesore of nightmares. Ooh the fiend!

Vex uses Uproar which grants him many fantastic powers. He can create floating green fists that he uses to smash Sackboy. He can also use the uproar to control other entities, making them Vexed. He can make objects like bombs out of thin air as we see in his boss battles. He also appears to be able to shape shift although when he does whatever he shape shifts into changes to his color scheme and outfit. While being able to shape shift into entities he can also shape shift specific parts of his body, we see him turn his arm into a vacuum of sorts in the beginning cutscene of the game and at the ending cutscene of nervous system, and his neck and limbs grow longer in his boss battles. Vex's green duel lighting mark on his head might have something to do with the uproar as all Vexed enemies have it, it also seems to be the same color as the uproar.


Vex seems to be a red and navy blue jester with glowing eyes, a stitched-mouth, three wires for arms, three sharp fingers, navy blue gloves, a ripped up cape, and navy blue boots.


Having A Blast - Vex

This fight takes place on a large platform with a gap in the center, and with all solid ground comprised of conveyor belts. He'll throw time bombs, they can be thrown at Vex (Which is the only way to beat him). He'll summon fists to squish you. At some points, Vex will push back the conveyor belts, flames will even come out of the belts.

The Deep End - The Vextinguisher

This fight takes place on the same platform as the previous fight, but Vex has some new tricks up his sleeve: He'll rise some of the conveyor belts ups, and he'll make them have flames coming out around them. At some points, Vex will push the conveyor belts around.

Until Vex Time - The Vexterminator

This fight takes place again on the conveyor platform, and Vex employs new attacks: He'll rise some of the conveyor belts ups by jump to the air. Vex will summon spikey pillars that roll forward on the conveyors.

Vexpiration Date - The Vexecutioner

Unlike the previous fights with Vex, this fight is not on the conveyor platform.

  • Vex's name means to make (someone) feel annoyed, frustrated, or worried, especially with trivial matters, this seems to match his behavior in the game. (From Google)
  • Vex called the Sackpeople "Sackers" as a way to tease them.
  • Vex says "Oh, don't tell me you don't recognized your old pal Vex!" which means he met Sackboy before, or maybe it could be another Knitted Knight that defeated him.
  • It seems that Vex could be a recurring villain in some game, mostly a sequel to Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
  • Vex is one of antagonists that are made of fabrics, apart of the Hoard.
  • Considering that Sackboy is canonically 8 cm (or 3 inches) tall, Vex may be around the average height of a human, or around 5 feet.
