Villain Overview

They call me Cry Baby Cry Baby, but I don't f****ing care!
~ Cry Baby in the song.
Wait. What was my dream again? I remember feeling trapped in rising heat, and there were plastic or cardboard cutouts all around me, and my gums' roots were pushing out my teeth, and the voice of a thousand angels said to me, “It’s temporary.”
~ Cry Baby in the opening of K-12.

Cry Baby (also spelt Crybaby), is the mascot for the American singer, actress and director Melanie Martinez, appearing as the titular main protagonist in both the thematic story for the album Crybaby and in the 2019 film and album K-12.

She is a young woman who has struggled throughout her life with emotional instability and large amounts of trauma which has led to her doing some questionable and bad things over the course of her life. In spite of that however she is a good person at heart with an extraordinary gift for empathy, something which allowed her to become an "empath" with a vast array of psychic powers at her disposal.

She was portrayed by Melanie Martinez herself.

Biography

Backstory

Cry Baby was born into a fairly loveless household with an alcoholic mother, stoner brother and unfaithful father. Her odd name came from her brother altering her birth certificate as a cruel joke to give her a name he felt fit her personality well. Growing up she had few friends but was bullied harshly, although in spite of this she did manage to make a close friend in a girl named Angelita.

Crybaby

Throughout the first few songs in the album Cry Baby describes how false and toxic her life is and gives glimpses into her terrible home life truly is in spite of it seeming perfect and desirable on the surface.

As the album progresses Cry Baby meets and begins a relationship with attractive young man of whom she dubs as Alphabet Boy, who in spite of being charming on the surface is in fact a pretentious and dismissive snob who barely pays attention to her leading a frustrated Cry Baby to blow off their relationship.

Following this, she met another boy named Johnny who in spite of a nervous start she began a much less toxic relationship with. In spite of this however it's soon revealed just how lonely Cry Baby truly is after throwing a birthday party to which nobody attends leading her into having a mental breakdown ending with her destroying her own home and blowing off her relationship with Johnny.

Sometime after this Cry Baby wanders into a shop by herself and is given a vial of poison by a shifty cashier before being kidnapped by a wolf and forced to make him cookies, using the opportunity to escape Cry Baby poisons the cookies and flees the scene before the wolf can recover. A now delusional Cry Baby then meets yet another love interest known as Blue Boy of whom is in a toxic relationship himself, in spite of numerous attempts to make him break off the relationship she fails and falls deeper into her own insecurities becoming obsessed with every little imperfection and detail about her looks after being subjected to advertisements of what "a woman should like" being shown on TV.

Soon enough however she overcomes her struggles with her appearance thanks to sensing the scenario between Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head, and accepts her looks for what they are, allowing herself to grow into a much stronger and more capable person.

K-12

After being accepted into the boarding school K-12 Cry Baby and Angelita sit beside one another on the bus in total misery about their destination, something only worsened when some bullies (including Blue Boy) throw an insulting note to Cry Baby leading her into almost bursting into tears.

Once arriving at the institute Cry Baby and Angelita are immediately on edge and unnerved about the building and the ways in which their peers are behaving but try to brush it off and survive their way through their time at the school. Problems soon arise however thanks to an envious girl named Kelly of whom's boyfriend was talking to Cry Baby confronts her during recess and begins fiercely pounding her with attacks while a restrained Angelita can only watch in horror. After having her arm sliced by Kelly Cry Baby begins demonstrating her powers in self defence to the point of strangling the girl with her hair. Eventually however the two are broken away from each other by the teacher Miss Daphne who drags the two into detention.

Once arriving, Cry Baby notices the boy next to her eating pills and asks him why, to which he explains that the principal and his staff are brainwashing the students much to Cry Baby's horror. Following this several shenanigans ensue which eventually lead to Cry Baby and Angelita almost falling victim to a dose of brainwashing before being rescued by a mysterious guardian to "empaths" such as themselves. After this Cry Baby is given a role in the school's play which she is disappointed with but ultimately is forced to play. She uses this to her advantage however and in the midst of the performance she breaks free all of her fellow students by telling them they have been brainwashed leading to the vengeful mob of students to break into the principal's office and brutally attack him, tearing his limbs off and killing him.

Their victory is short-lived, however, as soon enough, the principal's son Leo enters the picture and takes over his father's position. Soon after he is appointed Cry Baby and her growing number of friends decide to overthrow him in a similar manner to his father, unfortunately however while checking the security footage Leo learns of their plans and is outraged and quickly formulates his own. He poses as the writer of a love letter to Cry Baby (Which was actually written by another student named Ben actually wrote) and asks Cry Baby to the school dance. Although surprised and confused she accepts his offer in order to help the plan succeeded further.

During the dance itself, Leo confesses his knowledge of the plan formulated to destroy him and in vengeance he forces all of the students to dance with each other until they die of exhaustion. Unfortunately for him however Cry Baby disguises herself as another woman with her powers and tricks him into going into a closet thinking they were going to have sex before exposing her true identity and locking him inside. Cry Baby then tries to formulate a plan to destroy the school only to be helped by Ben who confesses his love for her and tells her the idea of using large spit bubbles to float the school away. The two try the plan and it works, with the two of them eventually leaping off of the building as it floats higher and higher away. In this moment Leo finally breaks out of the closet and calls out in horror and frustration as his school floats away with him in it before eventually disappearing along with the school, presumably being killed.

The spirit guardian appears once again to take Cry Baby and her friends to a better life, however, she hesitates and looks back at the ruins of the school with a conflicted expression on her face.

Personality

As her name suggests Cry Baby is a very emotional individual and early on in her life she struggled greatly with her mental health and self esteem, being a very explosive, withdrawn and insecure person who slowly managed to complete lose her grasp on sanity when continuous traumas kept piling on top of her. Thankfully Cry baby managed to recover and although she still struggles she has a much better and more healthy way of dealing with her issues although still retains a rather violent and sadistic streak.

In spite of her faults however she is a genuinely good and empathetic person at heart who has learned to go out of her own way to help those around her in need, even her own enemies. She is also headstrong, independent, intelligent, fierce and charismatic, all of the above making her incredibly powerful and confident with her psychic abilities.

Appearance

Cry Baby is an attractive tan skinned woman of average stature and a slim build with dark eyes thick multi-coloured hair which varies wildly in length styles and colours (e.g half black and half blonde in one video or half blue and half pink in another). She has a rather eccentric, childlike and vintage fashion sense; often dressing in comfy, large, puffy, preppy dresses and skirts in varying patterns and styles.

Additionally she has several visible tattoos on her body, there is a subtle gap between her two upper front teeth and her eyes will change colour into a pure glossy black whenever she uses her powers.

Trivia

  • The character Cry Baby actually has a lot of elements and personality traits in common with that of her creator Melanie Martinez; even her name is a reference to a nickname bullies would often throw towards Melanie in her youth due to her sensitive and emotional nature.
  • Cry Baby was originally named Melatonin early on in her development and she is referred to as such a few times in unreleased songs from the Crybaby era meaning this was most likely her original name before her brother vandalized her birth certificate.
