The Caught Man is a moving 'harvestable' that is rarely found in the Nightmare, but when they do make an appearance; they are often seen running into walls, props, furniture, and so forth.

In appearance, the Caught Man appears to be a sponge-like humanoid figure with yellow skin, long arms, thin legs, and a blank, odd-looking expression on its face. Its attire is comprised of a pair of light-gray shorts, a red tie, a thin black belt, red gloves, white shirt, and black shoes.

The Caught Man can be handed over to Toaster Josh, in return for the Meeting Remnant, a back equipment that players can use and benefit from as they progress through the game, Fantastic Frontier.

  • It is based off on the iconic cartoon character, Spongebob Squarepants.
  • Players can kill the Caught Man, but will not get anything from it.
  • It is recommended for players to search the Caught Man in The Mansion and/or The Theatre, where they have a better chance of finding the running collectible.
