FNAF’s Vanny is a later addition to the roster of terrifying, anthropomorphic animals you face in the iconic survival horror series, but has certainly made a name for herself over the last few years. This bone-chilling bunny has quite the tail to tell, too. So let’s dive into all the important details about her identity, personality, lore, and more.

If you want to familiarize yourself with the other FNAF characters in the many FNAF games, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our guides to the iconic FNAF Freddy, along with his pals FNAF Bonnie, FNAF Chica, and FNAF Foxy.

Here’s everything in our FNAF Vanny guide:

Who is FNAF Vanny?

Vanny is a human in a rabbit suit, appearing as a white adult woman with long blonde hair, similar to FNAF Vanessa. The Vanny suit resembles a large white rabbit with a wide psychotic grin, huge, wide eyes, and stitches across the pattern of the suit. The suit also has a blue bow on the chest, and paw pads on each of the feet.

What is FNAF Vanny’s personality?

FNAF Vanny appears as a psychopath, hunting down FNAF Gregory, and one of FNAF: Security Breach’s multiple endings highlights that Vanny has already killed several children. Though she does appear to have some uncertainty in her voice, she nevertheless is responsible for the deaths of many children in a sadistic fashion, and is happy to hunt down Gregory, appearing to relish in the chase.

Is FNAF Vanny actually Vanessa?

Though there isn’t a concrete answer in any of the games or official media, fans generally accept that Vanny is actually Vanessa. The characters bear a striking resemblance, and the prevailing theory is that Vanessa is one of the people that William Afton is responsible for turning into a killer.

Vanessa previously worked as a security guard at the Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience, and we presume that this is how William Afton, while in his Glitchtrap form, captured and brainwashed Vanessa, turning her into the psychotic killer Vanny.

What games does FNAF Vanny appear in?

FNAF Vanny first appears as a voice in Five Night’s at Freddy’s: Help Wanted, once you complete the Curse of the Dreadbear DLC. Vanny makes her first true appearance in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach as the antagonist chasing Gregory, often appearing to scare the player, threatening both Gregory and Glamrock Freddy.

Is Vanny in the FNAF movie?

While there is a key character in the FNAF movie called Vanessa, she sees some significant changes to her game counterpart, and there’s no sign of Vanny the rabbit. Perhaps we’ll get to see this psychotic bunny in a future sequel…

Who is FNAF Vanny’s voice actor?

Two different voice actors play Vanny. Jessica Tang plays Vanny in Five Night’s At Freddy’s: Help Wanted, while Marta Svetek plays Vanny in FNAF: Security Breach, who you may recognize not only as the voice of Gregory and Roxy, but also from appearances in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, Horizon Forbidden West, and also Battlefield 2042.
