Hey, just because we have an undead robot hare going after us doesn't mean we still can't have a quick chuckle now, can we?



  • Some of the things Phone Dude says is just gold (if you can pardon the pun). For example, on the first phone call:
    Now, um, let me tell you what's new: we found another set of drawings, always nice, and a Foxy head! Which we think to be authentic (but then again, it could just be another crappy cosplay)...
    • He then says that if they don't find something soon, then they might have you walk around in a Furry suit saying "Boo!". And yes, that's with a capital "F".
      • Just the fact that people in-universe have taken the effort to cosplay as these killer animatronics. Unintentionally creepy? Yes. Hilarious? OH YEAH.
      • Even better knowing that Scott actually put ads for FNaF on Furry websites. Talk about knowing your audience.
    • Here's the full transcript:
      "Hehey! Glad you came back for another night! I promise it'll be a lot more interesting this time! We found some...some great relics over the weekend, and we're out tracking a new lead right now! So, uh, let me just update you real quick and you can get to work. Like, the attraction opens in, like, a week, so we have to make sure everything works, and nothing catches on fire! Uh, when the place opens people will come in from the opposite end of the building, and work their way toward you and past you, and out the exit. Uh, yeah you've officially become part of the attraction! You'll be starring as... the security guard! So not only will you be monitoring the people on the cameras as they pass through, you know, to make sure nobody steals anything or makes out in the corner, but you'll also be a part of the show! It'll make it feel really authentic, I think. Uh, now let me tell you about what's new. We found another set of drawings, always nice, and a Foxy head! Which we think could be authentic (but then again, it could just be another crappy cosplay...) And we found a desk fan, very old-school, metal though, so watch the fingers. Uh, heh, uh... right now the place is basically just, you know, flashing lights and spooky props. Well, I honestly thought we'd have more by now. Uh, if we don't have something really cool by next week, we may have to suit you up in a Furry suit and make you walk around saying "boo!", heh heh. Bu- But, you know, like I said, we're trying to track down a good lead right now. Uh, some guy who helped design one of the buildings, says there was, like, an extra room that got boarded up, or something like that. So, we're gonna take a peek and see what we can find. Uh, for now, just get comfortable with the new set up, um, you can check the security cameras over to your right with a click of that blue button. Uh, you can toggle between the hall cams and the vent cams...uh, then over to your far left, you can flip up your maintenance panel! Uh, y'know, use this to reboot any systems that may go offline. Heh, in trying to make the place feel vintage, we may have overdone it a bit, heh heh. Some of this equipment is barely functional. I wasn't joking about the fire, that's — that's a real risk. Uh, the most important thing you'll want to watch for is the ventilation. Look, this place will give you the spooks, man, and if you let that ventilation go offline, then you'll start seein' some crazy stuff, man! Keep that air flowin'! Okay, keep an eye on things, and we'll try to have something new for you tomorrow night."

    • Considering Phone Dude's personality, one wonders what's in those vents to make you hallucinate...
    • Even better? That call lasts till FOUR A.M.
  • The Balloon Boy mini-game. Found by chance, it is a fun little mini-game where Balloon Boy collects balloons. It does reset the night, but it is a cute little Easter Egg, and completely out of place in the grim setting.
    • There is also a mini-game for Toy Chica, and it was discovered it occurs if you click on certain objects in a certain order in certain cameras. This time, Chica is finding cakes to give crying children.
  • The recordings of the old Phone Guy, as he explains the safety procedures for operating the new suits, have him talking about the possible deaths of the suit's operators with his standard nonchalant attitude.
    "You are the face of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza".
    • His Night 4 phone call explaining the new policy for the springlock suits.
    Phone Guy: There's been a slight change of company policy, concerning use of the suits: Um, don't.
    • His Night 6 phone call, in which he mentions that the safe rooms are now being permanently sealed brings a bit of horrifying things to mind, but the sentence notifying employees that they can't go back in is just pure hilarity at its finest.
    Phone Guy: Nothing is being taken out beforehand, so if you left anything in there, it's your own fault.
  • On Night 4, Phone Guy mentions that the employees should not question the relevance or appropriateness of the short notice suits (and also doubles as a Brick Joke to Phone Dude's earlier line).
  • The phantom animatronics may be a very scary part of the game, but there are tons of laugh-worthy things alongside them.
    • The way Phantom Freddy tiptoes past the glass window looks so goofy and looks like one of those cartoon characters trying to sneak somewhere. Though his Jump Scare is unfiltered Nightmare Fuel, there is something strangely amusing about seeing him hobbling past the office window like he has a limp.
      • It gets better. Someone edited the animation slightly and then someone else added some music: the result? Freddy Jazzbear.
      • Alas, it becomes less funny when you realize he walks like this because one of his legs is nearly entirely missing. note 
    • The pose Phantom Foxy's character model is in on the Extras menu looks ridiculously strange. Even if he's adopting a Primal Stance with his hunch and crouch, as if ready to pounce at the camera, the effect is that his head looks like it's far too large for his body, his torso is very small, his arms are very thick, and he has comically short legs. His jumpscare also brings to mind those pictures of dogs sticking their noses into a camera with a fish-eyed lens.
    • Phantom Chica uses her old rotund character model from the first game, and due to her coloration, she looks like a watermelon.
      • Her Jump Scare is also very casual, for the same reasons as Springtrap. She just walks up to you with her mouth open.
    • Phantom Mangle merely peeks its head up to peer at you through the window. All you get to see of it is the top of its head!
  • The Night 5 ending cutscene. You play as a murdered child and progress to the same room where the other animatronics were dismantled by the Purple Guy, but this time he doesn't appear. Entering the room he was guarding reveals more murdered children barring the door, and the Purple Guy utterly losing his shit. His sprite shows him screaming and pointing, and when you walk over to him, he hops around the room while cute little jump noises play. What happens next is horrible, but still.
  • You can still honk Freddy's nose by clicking on it.
  • Springtrap can be pretty terrifying, but his expression as he glances at you from outside the left office entrance is funnily casual, like he's saying, "What's up?" That is, until he attacks you when the lights go out.
    • Even his jumpscares, especially when compared to the phantoms, are inappropriately casual. He doesn't leap at you or move to invade your personal bubble more so than he just walks to you and makes himself known. Complete with the "grin", it's almost as if he's saying "Gotcha! Now... howyadoin'?"
  • Some of the sprites from the Atari mini-games are pretty funny. Examples include the angry kid who doesn't get any cake, a fat kid who's running off his weight, a comically sprinting Purple Guy, and Springtrap bobbing his head as if he's listening to a beat.
  • There's a Phantom version of, of all things, the little toy cupcake from the previous games. It's strangely adorable.
  • The training tape says that if the spring lock of an animatronic suit fails while a person is inside it, that person should head to a secluded area before bleeding out to avoid scaring the customers. Black Comedy at its finest.
  • In the end of night minigames, after Purple Guy dismantles your character, he starts reacting to it in a way that makes it look like he's dancing on the animatronic's corpse.
  • As with the first game, the rare screen where Springtrap "unmasks" himself is very reminiscent of this scene in RoboCop 2. Especially since both scenes involve corpses stuffed into machines.
  • There's something indirectly hilarious about picturing the Guard trying to keep both his maintenance panel AND the cameras up and failing because opening one closes the other.
  • The start of Phone Guy's message on night 4 is great.
    Phone Guy: There has been a slight change in company policy regarding the use of the (spring-lock) suits: uh... don't.


  • A new teaser from Scott's site shows the new map. While brightening it reveals that there's alternate pathways (including one leading directly to your office), many people noticed that if you flip it upside down, it resembles Scott's avatar. Though it was most likely unintentional, it does lead to this humorous comment from Know Your Meme:
  • Well, it seemed that FN@F3 had to be cancelled, since a hacker got a hold of it and leaked it out into the internet... until it was revealed that it was just an old game of Scott's, but with a Freddy head on the character and the "Trololol Song" playing. Oh Scott, you glorious troll you.
  • The general reaction to the return of Balloon Boy on Reddit and Steam? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
  • This running animation of Springtrap, since it doesn't show him moving his legs (because his legs would've been cut off from view in the game).
  • Crashing bug fixed! Crashing bug fixed! Crashing bug fixed! Crashing bug fixed! Crashing bug...
  • Springtrap isn't the only one who keeps coming back.
    • The fact that Phone Dude confirms that it's the original fan from the first two games makes it all the funnier.
  • For the third anniversary of FNAF, Scott released more 'making-of' pictures from when he was making the previous games. The one from FNAF 3 has Springtrap waving at us.
  • Springtrap's movements when he nears the office can actually be quite amusing, as he seems to be outright trolling the player with his peeking, hiding and his Smug Smiler tendencies. It's easy to imagine him going: "Just peepin' in to check if you signed your will yet!"


Let's Play

  • CoryxKenshin getting frustrated at Scott's FNAF 3 "troll game".
  • Markiplier wasted no time playing it as soon as it was released. 2nd night quickly put him on edge.
    (all said extremely fast) "Oh, dammit! There he is! Hey buddy, how's it going? You wanna get a noise, like over there? Like over there! There's a bunch of noises, like noisy noises! I heard the noisiest noise I ever heard in Room 10! Roo- is that a room? Room 10? You might wanna check out Room 10 cause Room 10... WOO! Boy, let me tell about all the stuff that's in Room 10! Room 10, oh it's got - it's amazing! It's got - there's cake! There's bunny rabbits floating everywhere - you'd love it. I seem to be in a bit of trouble." (ventilation system goes offline) "Don't worry about the flashing lights! Let's just have a conversation, cause I really wanna get to know you as a person! Cause I know there's a person in there, and I know you're a person at heart! And you're really kind and cherish - you know I feel a deeper connection now that we're looking each other in the eye. 'scuse me for a second, I'm gonna-" (Guard blacks momentarily out from the lack of air; Springtrap immediately kills him) AAAAH!!! Oh, god dammit! Ahhhh, fuck!
    • Later in the same night, after being caught by Springtrap again, he goes through — the first time rambling on about how he met the other animatronics, the second time apparently trying to flatter Springtrap into leaving him alone.
    "Oh, hey, heeey, HEEEEEY! I... was just talking about you! Remember when I told you to go fuck yourself, and you didn't? Oh, I thought that was a very clever choice.
    • One time it actually works!
      "The lights may be flashing right now, but I just want to think about the red-hot burning love that I feel in my heart for YOU –" [wins the night] "YEAAAAAAH-HA-HA!" [taunting voice] "Boop-boop-ba-doop-doop, I don't love you at aaaall! Yeah ha ha ha ha ha ha!"
    • Plus his reaction to BB and Chica's tag-team jumpscare:
      "HEY WHAT THE FUCK?!! You can't double-date me like that! Not with Chica! THE INTERNET WOULDN'T APPROVE!"
      • Of course, he doesn't waste a second to tell Springtrap about it the second he is again stared down by it.
    • During Nightmare Mode, right after a run-in with BB, Foxy appears in the office and proceeds to stare at Mark for the better part of half a minute, even letting him reset a couple systems before lunging. Mark's befuddled terror is priceless.
    • Another thing many people may miss is that Phantom Mangle appears as early as Night 2 for Mark (he realizes that she was on-camera right after pulling down the monitor), but glitches out and doesn't blast its static. As Mark panics about that, he doesn't even realize she's peering over the hallway window until she drops out of sight and the player character starts freaking out, which then causes him to freak out again.
    • After beating Nightmare mode, he goes into the Extras menu and unsuspectingly selects the Jumpscare section. What follows is exactly what you would expect.
    • In one of his many attempts at Aggressive Nightmare Mode, Markiplier simultaneously gets the Puppet linger, triggers a Foxy jumpscare, triggers a Freddy jumpscare, and as soon as he lifts the camera again, triggers a Balloon Boy jumpscare. It's practically mercy when Springtrap walks in and finishes the job!
  • dlive likewise started his descent into the new Fazbears establishment.
  • Achievement Hunter got in on the fun with Michael Jones and Gavin Free going at it. You know it's a good time when the title replaces "Let's Play" with "F*** THIS GAME".
    • As he did when they played the first game, Gavin once again retreats to the corner. The video even opens with him whimpering.
  • Yamimash follows up, letting loose a rather high-pitched scream when Springtrap's peeking through the door.
  • 11 drunk guys took care of it
  • Watch Girls Play had the girls renaming Springtrap "Snapchat."
    • One of the girls goes into a Big "NO!" as she's close to 6 and Springtrap jumps her... only for the growl to hilariously cut off as the clock chimes, leading to a Big "YES!"!
    • All of the girls' bewildered responses to Night 1 being nothing but smooth sailing.
  • Fluttershy decides to round out the trilogy in this video. The funny thing is, Pinkie Pie, the one who got her to play the first two, actually begged her not to play it. Flutters, having figured that nothing could scare her worse than the first two, didn't listen. She was wrong.
  • Der Fäilure gives this game a shot, with the usual distractions.


How well does it match the trope?
