Friday Night Funkin' Minus is a Friday Night Funkin' Game Mod that changes character designs to look more like their icons, often taking some creative liberties with it, like turning Pump into Skid's puppet, or giving Pico a dinosaur costume. There is also an option to play as three different Boyfriends: Beta, Blue, and Mean. It is available on Gamebanana.
This game provides examples of:
- Anatomy Anomaly: If you fail a song as the Mean Boyfriend, his skeleton shows a bone in his cap, which may suggest that the hat is really just a part of his head.
- Adaptational Species Change:
- Adaptational Nonsapience: In Spooky Month, Skid and Pump have around the same level of intelligence, with Pump occasionally depicted as the more sensible one. In Minus, Pump is a seemingly lifeless puppet.
- Adaptational Wimp: In Friday Night Funkin', the Girlfriend is able to sit on the stereo just fine with only her hair blowing in week 4. Here, she is holding on for dear life with a clearly panicked look on her face.
- Age Lift: Daddy Dearest looks a fair bit younger, being more svelte and brightly-dressed.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Everyone's skin color is the same as their icon, leading to things like Beta Boyfriend being yellow, Pico being green, Girlfriend being pink, and so on.
- Bare Your Midriff: Mommy Mearest's rider suit has a strip that shows part of her stomach.
- Blush Sticker: The Girlfriend now has two circles on her cheeks to indicate blushing.
- Cock Fight: According to Word of God through artwork, the three Boyfriends are not only trying to out-rap the rivals they meet each week, but they're also trying to out-rap each other for the right to date the Girlfriend.
- Cool Shades: Mean Boyfriend puts on shades in his right pose.
- Decomposite Character: The various icons Boyfriend's had during the original game's development were turned into separate characters: The blue icon with a red cap found in the "grafix" image became Mean Boyfriend, the original yellow icon became Beta Boyfriend, and the final blue icon became Blue Boyfriend.
- Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Pico wears a dinosaur costume here, fitting for him trying to look cool.
- Fear of Thunder: Played straight by the Girlfriend (like in the original), Beta Boyfriend, and Blue Boyfriend, as they react with shock when there's a storm in Week 2. Averted by Mean Boyfriend, who just gives an unamused expression.
- Hat Damage: In Mean Boyfriend's game over screen, his hat breaks like a bone.
- Institutional Apparel: Monster wears a tattered and bloodied straitjacket as a sort of shirt, with his arms and legs completely free.
- Lizard Folk: In this mod, Pico is depicted as a humanoid-lizard-thing in a dinosaur costume.
- Perky Goth: The Girlfriend is a goth according to the tutorial week's title which is shown with her darker fashion sense, but she's almost always smiling, just like in the original.
- Stealth Pun: Pump is a marionette with a microphone that Skid moves around - you could call him a "Pumppeteer".
