Forget-Me-Not is a playable mascot in Crossy Road. He can be found in the prize machine or can be bought for 0.99
Forget-Me-Not is based on an indie game that designer Matt Hall played, called Forget-Me-Not. It is a white cube with two black eyes on the top of its body.
When playing as Forget-Me-Not, pink flowers (which are fairly rare, though not as rare as coins), like those in the original Forget-Me-Not game, can be found on the map. Collecting more than ten of the flowers will cause the screen to flash a different colour after picking each one up and will cause a strange noise. After picking up 20, a ghost will appear on the screen and will stay there until the player gets killed. While it is on the screen, it begins floating without direction around the screen and producing swirly sounds, as if to distract the player or obscure the mascot. Once 30 are picked up, a bright yellow flash will appear, accompanied by a strange sound (much like what happens when 10 pieces are picked up).

How to Obtain
- Many players suspected that the pink items were puzzle pieces, but they are in fact, flowers.
- Forget-me-nots, also called scorpion grass, are a type of flowering plant, which is why there are flowers in both games. Of German origin, the name was first used in English in 1398 through King Henry IV. The flowers can be pink, blue, white or yellow, and have yellow centres. Unlike the Crossy Road flowers, forget-me-nots have five petals.
- Forget-Me-Not was based on a game that Matt Hall really loved by a Melbourne designer called Brandon Williamson.
