How much did turning into a cartoon influence Henry's personality in the Rubberhose AU? Since he kind of created himself, was the result an idealised, flattened version in a sense? How much of a point does Bendy have when saying he fits into that heroic archetype?
It sort of depends on how you look at it. Henry would say he’s simply feeling more energetic thanks to his revitalized youth, and naturally it’d make him more motivated to understand what’s going on. Meanwhile Bendy sees him going from a weird and confused old man to this bouncy dweeb who’s figuring stuff out the rest of them never managed. Everyone’s coming out of this acting differently than they would have before, and Henry blames it on the stress and circumstance while Bendy sees it as part of a shift in narrative.
