1x1x1x1 (currently "UN94988379") is a test account that was created by Shedletsky, formerly Telamon. Throughout the community, many rumors spread about 1x1x1x1 being a "hacker". He is also the antagonist of The Classic.

There were many rumors that 1x1x1x1 was an exploiter or a leader of an exploiting group. Although the rumors about 1x1x1x1 have long since been debunked, many users continue to believe them, along with the rumors of John Doe and Jane Doe.

Players think that he became active again after Roblox released updates, which further increased fears that "1x1x1x1 is back and will hack everyone". With 1x1x1x1's popularity within the Roblox community, Roblox has made references to him in media and events.

Alleged Rumor (and debunking)

1x1x1x1 was used to prey on fear in one of the stories created by Shedletsky, mentioning an "evil 1x1x1x1 part" and as such many people have speculated that he is a real hacker. However, former administrator MrDoomBringer verified that 1x1x1x1 is not a hacker and started as part of one of Roblox's backstories created by Shedletsky. As discussed in the forum post:

I posted this in a thread that subsequently died. I'm posting it here so you can refer back to it later. Keep the link to this forum. Distribute it. Tell people the truth. Let's talk about where the name comes from. Long ago, Telamon posted a number of stories about Roblox's backstory to the News. One of these included mentions of 2x2, the first brick. Copied over and over, every other brick were it's descendents.

Then, in a footnote, he mentions the evil 1x1x1x1. So that's where the name comes from. Blame John.

Let's talk about why people say he's a hacker. A guy who's (sic) name is long forgotten (not Zuka) found an exploit (not CheatEngine) to insert control scripts into online places. He sent me a message, telling me he had something to demonstrate. I joined him in Crossroads, and it started raining heads saying things along the lines of "He's coming back!" and "1x1x1x1 is coming for you!" and the likes. People in the server freaked out, I found it hilarious, he gave me instructions on how it works and I reported it to the devs. End of story.

Other people, like Dignity, would find others way to insert scripts, and people would assume that they have something to do with "the hacker group" 1x1x1x1.

Truth is, it was one guy playing off of a Roblox Lore thing.

Usage of 1x1x1x1 in Events

Over the years, Roblox events have had multiple references, easter eggs, and appearances by 1x1x1x1. The first instance of a reference to 1x1x1x1 in a Roblox event was during the summer egg drop portion of Eggstravaganza 2010 where one of the prizes, Dark Crimson Egg of Nemesis, had a description stating it was "A metaphysical manifestation of the spirit of 1x1x1x1 himself".

This egg later appeared as an easter egg in Egg Hunt: The Great Yolktales' map for the Egg Hunt 2019: Scrambled in Time event, alongside the Golden Fabergé Egg of Hivemind, they speak about how they are angry that the Roblox community for forgetting about them and how they wish to be limited items like the majority of the Eggstravaganza 2010 eggs.

The next use of 1x1x1x1 in an event would be during the Ready Player Two event. Within the event there were two references to 1x1x1x1, the first being a decal based on 1x1x1x1 being hidden in the Ready Player Two Hub game. The other, and more explicit, reference to 1x1x1x1 was that a set of prizes were themed after 1x1x1x1. This included 1x1x1x1's Teapot, 1x1x1x1's Shirt, and 1x1x1x1's Pants. These items are, as of June of 2024, obtainable in Bad Business by completing their challenge for the event and touching 1x1x1x1's Teapot at the end of challenge.

Following this, in the 8th Annual Bloxy Awards event there were three references to 1x1x1x1. The first was the same decal hidden in the Ready Player Two Hub, this one being on one of the cubes in the Lobby. The second was a line of dialog that can be heard while waiting for the award show, "Attention all passengers, if you see any suspicious characters by the name of 1x1x1x1, please report them to a member of our staff immediately. We thank you for your cooperation.".

This then opened a secret area where there was whiteboard that had information about 1x1x1x1 and the Daemonshank, interacting with the Daemonshank would spawn in 1x1x1x1 who would attack you until you defeated him using the various weapons that were purchasable with Tickets. Defeating 1x1x1x1 awarded you the ability to view the game's credits.
