- “Deceit and fables, lies and fiction
Even with complete conviction
If truth is absent from these events
All will face the punishments.”
- ―Truth or Punishments Box[src]
The Truth or Punishments Box is a bluish-green cube with lighter blue lines covering all of its sides like a circuit board. When the game is turned on, the box glows and the lines stick out slightly from the cube's sides. The game also has a voice and mind of its own and possesses at least some level of external awareness, since it knew that Star had baked brownies shortly before the game started.
As the game begins, each player must stick their little finger in the mouth of the box's demon face and swear to tell the truth. The objective of the game is for the players to truthfully answer three progressively difficult questions or face punishments that gradually increase in severity. Said punishments can include a ticklish electric shock, mutation, or even death. In addition, once the game begins, it traps the players in a giant metal cube and refuses to let them leave until all three questions have been answered truthfully.
If the box detects that too many lies have been told, it transforms into a monstrous diamond-like creature with two mouths that will try to eliminate the source of the lies. However, it is possible to confuse and terminate the box's programming by presenting it with a truth/lie paradox.
- Truth or Punishments is similar to the classic party game "Truth or Dare" and the television game show Truth or Consequences.
- The Truth or Punishments Box is voiced by Sean Schemmel, who is best known for providing the voice of adult Goku in the Funimation dub of the Dragon Ball franchise.
