The Penguin is a character in Five Nights at Candy's.

While The Penguin doesn't appear in the main gameplay of Five Nights at Candy's 2, he is first seen in the Night 2 Minigame. He is replaced by Withered Penguin.

While The Penguin doesn't appear in the main gameplay of Five Nights at Candy's 3, he is seen in the Fishing with Candy.


FNaC 1 & 2

He is a penguin-like animatronic with a dark blue and white tuxedo and a red bow tie. He has a small orange beak. He is also very small, making him hard to see in the cameras sometimes.

FNaC 3

The Penguin appears to be the same as he was in the first game, but with a cartoonish design.


The Penguin will start in CAM 12 and will approach the player through CAM 02, 03 and 04, finally approaching the player at the door. If the player neglects to close the right door when the Penguin is there, he will enter the room and sit under the desk.

While the Penguin doesn't jumpscare the player, he will mess with the doors and the window while the player watches the cameras. This might allow other animatronics to sneak in and go for the kill, so the Penguin shouldn't be underestimated.


Night 2

Starting from Parts & Services, the player controls the Penguin to search the restaurant for three broken pieces of Chester: an arm, a leg, and his head. Chester's former curtained location is now blocked off by a strip of yellow and black caution tape.

The player can only collect one piece at a time before returning it to a cardboard box at their starting point. Blank can be found sitting inactive in the Drawing Room but cannot be interacted with. Returning the third piece of Chester will end the minigame.


In the Fishing With Candy minigame, Candy is trying to catch fish. Eventually Penguin will appear when Candy miss a fish.

Penguin also shows up in the glitch minigame for Candy's Adventure.


  • His original design had him missing an eye.
  • The Penguin is the only animatronic who has no jumpscare; this is similar to Balloon Boy from Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
    • Also like BB in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, he can talk as well, although he says,"Can I take your order?" if he appears in the Office.
FNAC Penguin 01
    • Also similar to the JJ hallucination in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, he goes under the desk upon entering the room.
      • However, unlike JJ, The Penguin's body is completely shown, with JJ showing only her head.
    • He also acts like Balloon Boy in where he can control the game mechanics to a disadvantage for the player
      • He is also the shortest among the characters, again, like BB from Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
  • While his jamming the doors and window can be a disadvantage, this may sometimes work out to your advantage.
  • He has a very similar design to Wheezy from Toy Story 2 and Gunter from Adventure Time.
  • The Penguin and his Withered variant don't have a jumpscare, instead they do something to mess with the main mechanic.
