"Easter Egg"
This article is about ingame easter egg/secret. Be sure to watch out for those while playing!

Were you looking for Shadow Candy's counterparts, Candy, Old Candy, the Cat or Nightmare Candy?

Shadow Candy is a rare antagonist and a hallucination in
Five Nights at Candy's. He is a secret, shadowy version of Candy.


He shares his appearance with Candy, though his color is dark purple with black shadings. His eyes are completely hallowed with phantom-like eyes, and his teeth glow white. Unlike Candy and Cindy, Shadow Candy has extra teeth from his upper jaw.


Rarely, while both Candy and Cindy are out of the Main Stage, Shadow Candy appears at the exact spot where Candy normally starts, except that Shadow Candy is staring at the camera. Strangely, the star decorations change to a purple color as soon as he appears.
Once he is encountered, his face slowly rises up in the window at the Office after a few seconds when lowering the monitor. If the player observes him for too long, Shadow Candy will crash the game.

To prevent Shadow Candy from causing a game crash, pull up the maintenance panel
before he crashes the game. Afterwards, he'll disappear once lowering the monitor.


  • The way how the player summons Shadow Candy to the Office is strikingly similar to Golden Freddy in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, though, he never had a kill screen after looking at him for too long. He seems to be fended off in the same way.
  • Shadow Candy is one of the animatronics not to appear in the Extras menu, others being the Markiplier animatronic and Vinnie.
  • He is the only animatronic not to appear in Emil's "Thank You Too!" image.
  • He is one of the animatronics not to outright kill the player. Two others are Markiplier and the Penguin.
    • He does cause a game crash after observing him for too long, however.
      • As confirmed in the Extras Menu of Five Nights at Candy's 3, Shadow Candy originally had a jumpscare image and a texture for being inside your office as opposed to appearing in the window.

Shadow Candy is a rare antagonist and a hallucination in Five Nights at Candy's 2. He is a secret, shadowy version of Candy.

He only appears in the minigames in this game.


Shadow Candy only appears in this game in Night 6 minigames, in all of them (three). In first minigame on this night he starts from Main Party Room, and player have a objective to follow him. Shadow Candy will lure the player till Parts & Service room, then he disappears, and then technician in this room, runs to Old Candy (player), with some sort of tool, probably trying to disable him.

In the second minigame on this night he only appears on the kid's drawing.

In the third, and last minigame, he will guide the player into the Office, where the depressed kid sits, and after Old Candy will walk over to the kid, Shadow Candy will guide you to the Main Hall 1, where a man stands, pushing the child. Old Candy will then approach the man, ending the minigame.


  • It is very likely that Shadow Candy's purpose is to be a protector, since he guided Old Candy to the Office, where the sad kid was located, and Old Candy cheered him up. He also guides the player to the man pushing the child.
  • Shadow Candy shares his appearance with Candy, but existed before him.
