Vanessa A., also known as Vanny, is a major antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.

She is the protagonist-turned-villain of Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, a mentioned character in Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery and the presumed main antagonist of the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach.

Vanny is a follower of Glitchtrap, a virus connected to the serial killer William Afton.

She is voiced by Jessica Tang.


Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

Sometime after the downfall of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, Vanny is hired as a beta tester for an unnamed video game company that makes "The Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience" in cooperation with Fazbear Entertainment, who have been trying to rebrand themselves by discrediting the scandals and tragedies associated with them.

As she progresses through the game and collects hidden cassette tapes she starts to get visited by Glitchtrap in the game's level select hub, who attached himself to the tapes and is using them as a hiding place. By following the instructions of her preceding beta tester Tape Girl and narrowly avoiding a merge with him, she manages to turn Glitchtrap into a harmless plushie within the game. However, this allowed Glitchtrap to enter Vanny's mind, and the girl slowly gets possessed by him.

Curse of Dreadbear

Vanny manages to sneak the head of a white bunny sut she made into the VR game's Halloween add-on and implements it as a hidden unlockable in the Corn Maze level. After getting it she talks to Glitchtrap in his plushie form. She tells him she made the mask like he instructed (hoping he likes it) and that no one suspects anything, assuring him that she won't let him down. She will be ready for the "fun".

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

Vanessa was an employee of the Fazbear Funtime Service working a security, and after a virus got in the game, she pretended to be a Senior IT Representative from Fazbear Entertainment to trick them into giving her full access to the service to get rid of the virus. After believing that Vanessa got rid of the virus, Vanessa sends unauthorized commands to their system, gaining full control over said system, locking every employee out of their account, and it's implied that she got the animatronics at the warehouse to become hostile, to the point that a Bonnie the Bunny animatronic literally ate a cat.

After receiving an e-mail from Vanessa's fake credential, "_pizzaplex", it's revealed that Vanessa has been researching the company's records of the Fazbear Entertainment Floor 3 employees and that she transfered from work at the Fazbear Funtime Service to work as a security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Mega PizzaPlex.

Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach

Vanny is set to return, trying to kill the child Gregory and his friends, while Gregory is protected by Glamrock Freddy, the titular star of the new location, Freddy Fazbear's Mega PizzaPlex.


Vanny is a slender woman who wears a stitched white rabbit suit with red eyes and a blue bow tie, as well as pink patches. According to Luis, she has rainbow streaks. She has blond hair.


Glitchtrap: Stay the course.
Vanny: I will.
Glitchtrap: Focus on my voice.
Vanny: I will.
Glitchtrap: Don't let anyone lead you astray.
Vanny: I won't.
Glitchtrap: Have you selected one?
Vanny: I have.
~ A conversation between Glitchtrap and Vanny in the source code for



  • Opening the teaser of Glamrock Freddy with the Reluctant Follower in the background with notepad reveals that the image is called "Shadow of Vanny". This means Vanny is the follower's name.
    • Vanny is also considered to be a nickname for Vanessa. Coincidental or not, there is also an email in Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery that was supposed to be sent to a person called Ness, which is also part of the name Vanessa.
  • Since Glitchtrap is trapped in the VR game and can't do anything, it is possible that Vanny will be the main antagonist of the next games.
  • It is possible that Vanny isn't the only follower, Jeremy had a "Halloween mask" next to him as one of the tapes say, and Tape Girl tells us to do something that will save Glitchtrap, and not kill him. It was later revealed with the line that Jeremy also had 'ink' covering his body gives a high chance that the 'mask' was actually Jeremy's face which he had sliced off with a paper guillotine.
  • It is a popular meme in the fandom that Vanny has a crush on William. This went so far to become an actual theory.
  • Her username, Nessie97, may hint that she was born in 1997, which would be 4 years after William Afton died in the Spring Bonnie suit.
    • Given that Five Nights at Freddy's 3 (and presumably Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator) take place in 2023, and that Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted should take place some time after the events of those two games, it's likely that Vanny is around 26-27 years old.
      • However, leaked emails from Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery state her age as being 23 years old. This would mean that she was likely born in the early 2000's as Five Nights at Freddy' VR: Help Wanted takes place in either 2023 or some time after it.
  • Vanny will be the first living human antagonist that will appear outside of minigames.
    • She will also be the second main antagonist that is still a living human, with the first being the Brother.
    • However, counting William's book counterpart, she'll be the second and third antagonist respectively.
  • Her last name might be Afton.
