Friday Night Funkin’ is an open-source donationware game developed by four Newgrounds users. The story revolves around the player character, Boyfriend, who must defeat various characters in singing and rapping contests to continue dating his love interest, Girlfriend.
The gameplay revolves around hitting notes with timed inputs while avoiding running out of health for the song’s duration. This guide will list all the Friday Night Funkin characters.
In Friday Night Funkin, we have two main heroes that will accompany us throughout the game’s story.
The main protagonist of Friday Night Funkin’ is the “Boyfriend”. It is a 19-year-old human who is known for eating pepperoni pizza and donuts.
His primary motivation is to win musical duels in order to have a chance at a possible romance with his “Girlfriend.” To do so, he will have many enemies against him, such as his girlfriend’s dad and mother.
The Girlfriend is also 19, and she is a demon, unlike her boyfriend. She likes to watch musical competitions with her boyfriend and enjoys olive pizzas very much.
Just like the main characters in Friday Night Funkin’, some enemies will try to defeat the Boyfriend.
He is the first enemy that you will encounter in Week 1. Daddy Dearest is the father of your Girlfriend and the main villain in the Boyfriend’s story. Daddy Dearest will not allow them to have a relationship, so he battles with you.
After losing the battle, he hires Pico to take revenge on you (Boyfriend), which you can see in Week 3. Boyfriend continues to search for a way to defeat Daddy Dearest and does not rest until he finishes his mission, which is to marry his Girlfriend.
Skid and Pump
Skid and Pump have their origin story in Spooky Month, which is a web series. Mr. Pelo creates these characters. They are two children hired by Daddy Dearest to prevent Boyfriend from winning and accomplishing his goal.
Monster belongs to an unknown species. It appears in Week 5 and is the biggest enemy of that week. Having a lemon as a head, it drips blood from its teeth and eyes.
It can alter someone’s perception, which will affect Boyfriend, so make sure to be well-prepared.
Mommy Mearest is the sole wife of Daddy Dearest and mother of Girlfriend. Like her husband, she is a demon and a pop star.
She comes late in the game, helping her husband around Week 4, and just like the other enemies, she starts fighting Boyfriend.
Daddy Dearest hires a thug to hunt down Boyfriend. That thug is Pico. He appears in Week 3 and is tasked to retrieve Girlfriend. Pico is a 20-year-old Human.
He was initially a friend of Boyfriend, which is why he betrays Daddy, and instead of killing Boyfriend, Pico challenges him to a Rap battle.
Senpai is an 18-year-old human. He faces Boyfriend in Week 6. After failing to win against Boyfriend, Daddy traps him in a dating simulation in which he is trapped forever.
Once he is resurrected, you will have to beat him again to progress further in the story.
After killing Senpai for the second time, his resurrected soul will come back in Week 6 in the shape of a Spirit. His main motivation is to take revenge on Daddy Dearest.
Tankman appears in Week 7. He is a 30-year-old human who aims to beat Boyfriend once and for all. He has his henchmen with him called Tankmen, although Pico comes in to defend Boyfriend, which will help defeat Tankman and Tankmen.
