Fanfic / Five Nights At Junes

Go To

Five Nights at Junes is an Alternate Universe crossover fic between Persona 4 and Five Nights at Freddy's written by SkylaDoragono.

Tohru Adachi is down on his luck, having been let go from his job. Desperate for cash, he becomes the new night guard at Junes. As it turns out, this isn't as easy as it seems.

Completed in 2014, it has a sequel that takes cues from Five Nights at Freddy's 2 that you can read here, though it has not been updated since April 2015.


Five Nights at Junes provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Adachi is a neutral character in Persona 4 (except not, he's the Big Bad). He's the main protagonist of this fic.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In Persona 4, Namatame is a Tragic Monster who, as of Golden's epilogue, has more than reformed. In this fic, he's the Big Bad, being the fic's version of the Murderer from FNAF's backstory.
  • Adult Fear:
    • Dojima's past with Junes in the first story is full of this. His young daughter Nanako became the victim of the AU's equivalent to the Bite of '87 incident when Dojima looked away for a few seconds, and the original Izanagi animatronic bit off Nanako's frontal lobe. This incident along with his wife still dying because of a hit and run results in Dojima retiring early from the detective force due to the trauma.

    • The four children in the first story. Just like FNaF, the Adult Fear trope is invoked in that the aforementioned children were shown in Adachi's dreams how they were brutally murdered by a Serial Killer, while their bereaved parents probably had no idea where they were and what happened to them.
  • Alternate Universe Fic: Not only does this follow conventions from FNAF, Yu, Yukiko, Yosuke, and Kanji (several members of the Investigation Team in Persona 4) are long dead by the events of the fic.
  • Asshole Victim: No one, especially Adachi, feels sorry for Namatame when he is killed by the four children he murdered in the first Junes ten years ago.
  • Bad Boss: Kinshiro Morooka aka "King Moron" is Adachi's boss in the story who talks down and insults him at every opportunity. He's also responsible for covering up the murders committed by Namatame and the animatronics for at least a decade, with there being a lot more victims than just the murdered children.

  • Big Bad: Taro Namatame caused everything wrong in the story, with his victims possessing the animatronics and out for vengeance.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The melody that the murderer of the four children kept singing in Adachi's dreams? It helps Adachi identify Namatame as the culprit when he hears it in the real world.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: The four children haunting the first June's animatronics died this way ten years ago, being stabbed to death and stuffed into the animatronics just like the murdered children in the FNAF series.
  • Freudian Excuse: Namatame feeds one to Adachi after he finds himself surrounded by the animatronics containing the souls of the very children he murdered a decade ago. Adachi doesn't buy it for a second.
    Namatame: ""You don't understand! It was a bad time… m-my wife found out I was having an affair, and we separated, but instead of being able to stay with the woman I loved, she left me too. I was all alone… the affair had gone public and I lost my job as an official… I-I had nothing, and I snapped! I didn't mean to kill them, I swear!"
    Adachi: "What kind of bullshit are you trying to feed me? You stalked after and murdered those kids before stuffing them into these things. What you did was deliberate and planned out, and not some bullshit spur of the moment thing. Not only that, but you didn't just kill them, you know? You're responsible for every damn murder that's happened in this place since then, and trust me, I've only scratched the surface of how many night guards and random stupid kids didn't survive. You seriously don't think anyone sane would just up and forgive you, do you?!"
  • Gory Discretion Shot: How Saki Konishi dies is not explicitly revealed, but judging from the way the Jiraiya animatronic attacks her, it wasn't very pretty...
  • Haunted Technology: Just like FNaF canon, the animatronics from Junes are haunted by the spirits of five murdered children looking for revenge.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: The children haunting the first Junes' animatronics are so deadset on avenging their murders that they became responsible for a lot of deaths in a decade.
  • Irony: When Adachi learns that Namatame murdered the kids because of snapping from his marriage falling apart because of an affair, Adachi dismisses it as the weakest excuse he's ever heard. That's the exact same reaction the Investigation Team had regarding Adachi's own reason for committing his own murders in Persona 4 canon.
  • Killer Rabbit: Take, the rabbit animatronic. That's because it's housing the vengeful spirit of Kanji Tatsumi.
  • The Lancer: A ways into the second story, Jiraya (A.K.A. Yosuke) becomes this for Adachi, actively protecting him from the other animatronics.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Namatame, the Big Bad of the first story, meets his end when Adachi brings him to his former victims and they proceed to stuff him into an animatronic suit.
  • Missing Mom: Just like in Persona 4 canon, Nanako's mother was killed in a hit-and-run accident.
  • Not Now, Kiddo: Adachi's initial reactions to Shirogane Naoto's requests for information on June.
  • Oh, Crap!: Adachi reacts like this when he goes through his first night at Junes and beyond. Namatame also reacts like this when Adachi outs him as the killer of the four children.
  • Posthumous Character: Saki Konishi dies sometime before Adachi takes the night guard job at Junes, resembling the fate of the Phone Guy from the original FNAF.
  • The Punishment: It's suggested that Namatame is haunting one of the animatronics as of part 2.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Once Namatame is found out by Adachi, he starts losing it and attempts to justify his crimes by invoking a pretty pathetic Freudian Excuse. Adachi is not impressed in the least.

How well does it match the trope?
