How old are Cuphead and Mugman?

They're somewhere in the middle.

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 isn't an accurate indicator of age for these characters. Studio MDHR, the developer, provided an answer that should satisfy most people curious about the age of the characters.

What are the ages of Mugman and Cuphead?

Although they do not directly mention their age, we know they are over 18, thanks to a tweet from Studio MDHR. A Twitter user asked Studio MDHR over Twitter if Cuphead and Mugman were kids or adults. Studio MDHR replied that Cuphead and Mugman were more like "kidults."

Studio MDHR would have confirmed if they were just kids, but the specification of "adults" in the word "kidults" suggests that they acknowledge an adult age while also showing their respect for the childlike nature of both. We can assume that this refers to adults behaving like children or having childish interests. So they're over 18, the age at which someone is considered an adult. Maybe the studio will acknowledge when Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course releases, but that remains to be seen.
