"IT WORKED!!! THE SHIFT WORKED!!!"

VS Sky is a discontinued Game Mod for Friday Night Funkin' developed by bbpanzu (notable for also creating VS Carol and VS Sunday), consisting of a week's worth of songs featuring the character of the same name created by the "bfswifeforever" TikTok parody account.

When an obsessed Yandere projects herself into the world of Friday Night Funkin' to take Boyfriend for herself, it's up to him and Girlfriend to write up a much-needed reality check.

The mod has since been deleted off of GameBanana, the place where it was originally posted, and is not being reuploaded. The only way you can check out the mod for yourself is either through finding mirrored copies of the game on other websites, or through gameplay videos on YouTube. There are also fanmade mods with their own spin on the game.

Song list:

  1. Wife Forever
  2. Sky
  3. Manifest


Tropes:

  • Affectionate Parody: Sky originates from a parody account that spoofs real obsessive fangirls of fictional characters. Her portrayal in the mod, however, zig-zags between this and a full-on Take That!.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Sky first seems like a cute, if a little obsessive, girl who deeply loves and admires the Boyfriend. Then it becomes clear she can't take no for an answer. Then it turns out she has no qualms with erasing Girlfriend from existence to have Boyfriend all to herself. The songs reflect the gradual reveal of Sky's true personality very well. "Wife Forever" is stereotypically cutesy, "Sky" sounds like Sky angrily and violently arguing with Boyfriend, who’s trying to calmly refute her points, and "Manifest" is best described as "Megalovania, but performed by a furious and dangerously unstable screeching harpy." (It's better than it sounds.)

  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Sky is a feminine version of this, emphasized when she groans loudly during the title song when she realizes that she isn't getting her way.
  • Company Cross References: Done unintentionally. Sky's vocals during "Sky!" and "Manifest" are actually Sunday's vocals, but bbpanzu didn't realize that until he finished these songs. That explains why her voice is different in "Wife Forever".
  • Crucified Hero Shot: Girlfriend is crucified onto a wooden board after Sky manifests the three into a void. Doesn't stop her from savagely calling out Sky or bopping her head to the music, though.
  • Deconstruction:
    • Of "reality shifting," the pseudoscientific idea that one can transfer their consciousness to any desired reality outside of ours, even fictional ones — emphasis on the latter here. While Sky manages to successfully shift to Boyfriend's world, her reason for doing so — to take him for herself and have her self-shipping fantasies come true — makes her look more like a crazed lunatic than a kid in need of an outlet (the target demographic for reality shifting), and she is ultimately portrayed as an evil Yandere who can't accept a reality that doesn't go how she wants.
    • The mod also takes aim at fanfiction writers who put themselves into the story as a Self-Insert, and deconstructs the idea that the characters of an existing property the Self-Insert enters would just let the person have free reign to do what they want.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Invoked with Sky's overall appearance. She's obsessed with Boyfriend to the point where she looks like a female version of him.
  • Double-Meaning Title: The final song "Manifest" refers not only to the name of the folder in the base game's assets, but also the term in the reality-shifting pseudoscience relating to Sky's Reality Warper powers.
  • Flipping the Bird: Girlfriend does this to Sky in the third cutscene; it's really quite impressive, considering on how she's crucified on a board during the moment. As Sky is a Reality Warper, this also counts as a literal version of Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?.
  • Implied Death Threat: Girlfriend tells Sky to get bent by saying she should go shift on over to the world of Danganronpa instead. Considering Danganronpa is about a bunch of teens tossed into a Deadly Game, she's essentially saying Sky should probably be executed for her antics.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Girlfriend calls out the 'obligatory last song transformation' that Sky undergoes; after Senpai, Whitty, and Hex, she must be catching on to a pattern by now.
  • Last Note Nightmare: The entirety of the song is pretty nightmarish, and it's not exactly the last note, but near the end of "Manifest" there is a part where Sky emits a particularly soul-rending scream and an absolute mess of notes appears on her side of the screen, causing her to go batshit insane and spasm uncontrollably. Thankfully, the player is not asked to replicate that.
  • Loony Fan: Loony enough to project herself into the world of her favorite video game to date her favorite character, even though he is canonically in a relationship, and his determination to remain in said relationship, no matter the obstacles in their way, represents about 99% of the original game's plot. Sky herself seems blissfully unaware that her own actions firmly place her among the villains of the game she claims to love.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Girlfriend gets nailed to a wooden board through her hands by Sky, but doesn't seem too concerned by it, thoroughly roasting the latter for her failures.
  • Multiple Endings:
    • Getting higher than 70% accuracy on "Manifest" has Boyfriend simply defeat Sky and go home with the Girlfriend.
    • On the contrary, getting below 70% traps all three of them within the game's code indefinitely.
    • On a random chance, the player is instead treated to a red picture of 'peanut bf',note  accompanied by an ominous drone.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Boyfriend telling Sky that he doesn't want to date her and that he's already in a commited relationship with Girlfriend pisses Sky off HARD, as shown through her eponymous song.
  • One-Winged Angel: Once Sky finally snaps, she gains glowing red eyes, sharp teeth, and charred black arms and hands. An unimpressed Girlfriend goes on to call it the "obligatory last song transformation".
  • OOC Is Serious Business: During the third cutscene, Boyfriend starts speaking English instead of his normal beeps and boops, and wants to deescalate the situation rather than let it continue.
  • Parody Sue: Sky is meant to be a parody of obsessive fangirls who make Mary Sue-like OCs and ship them with canon characters.invoked
  • Primal Stance: Sky's down pose during Manifest involves her going down on all fours like a feral beast.
  • Quarreling Song: The entirety of the song 'Sky' embraces this, with Sky herself getting into an argumentative tantrum and Boyfriend firing back at her in song. Judging from her gasps and growls, what he's saying can't be very nice.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sky's eyes begin glowing red once she snaps.
  • Shows Damage: Sky becomes increasingly irritated in appearance during the song of the same name, using sprite-switching techniques previously demonstrated in Friday Night Funkin': Corruption.
  • Take That!:
    • Sky herself in this mod is a jab at fangirls who obsess over fictional characters and ship them with themselves, being portrayed as unambiguously creepy, if not outright evil in her ambitions when she decides to go as far as trying to erase Girlfriend from existence to have Boyfriend to herself.
    • The mod's narrative is also this to the then-recent trend of the "reality shifting" pseudoscience, which posits that it may be possible to use Astral Projection to jump from the real world to an ideal Alternate Universe or fictional world. Aside from the fact that this doesn't work, VS Sky also deconstructs the idea of shifting to a fictional universe by showing that even if such a power were real, there's no guarantee that things will be all sunshine and rainbows (especially with the emotional instability of an obsessive fangirl at play.)
  • Villainous Breakdown: Manifest is Sky's. This is lampshaded by Girlfriend, who makes fun of the trend of final songs being the character's Villainous Breakdown.
  • Yandere: Sky is here to force Boyfriend into a relationship with her, whether he likes it or not.
