- The minigames are a recurrent game mechanic in The Return to Freddy's series, to explain the story of the game.
The minigames or "Death Minigames" are first introduced in The Return to Freddy's Classic. They are activated upon death. Another way to access them is through Custom Night number sequences. There are 4 minigames in total, all can be activated through death and custom night codes.
2/6/16/0/0/0/0- you play as a night-guard in a room with prize box. When we approach it, we can see the reading saying "I AM SORRY". Minigame ends with Puppet jumpscare.
1/9/8/7/0/0/0- you play as Golden Freddy in an unknown location. You need to find a room with four children and guard. When you approach them it is revealed that Fritz Smith is inside the suit. The writing saying "It's me" will appear and the minigame ends with Golden Freddy jumpscare.
Minigames return in The Return to Freddy's 2 These are once again activated with the player's death.

Scott Cawton minigame-you play as Scott Cawton in an unknow location. You are in the room and you can see Lockjaw child crying. You need to approach the child and the minigame will end.
Shadow Lockjaw minigame- you play as Shadow Lockjaw in a room with four children and Springtrap. You need to go to another room with 3 children and Lockjaw child. When you approach Lockjaw child, the minigame ends.
Minigames come back once again in The Return to Freddy's 3, but this time they are quite different and triggered by the player's actions and not due to it's death.
These minigames are triggered by winning a night. There is one for every night but Night 4.
All these minigames take place in Fredbear's Family Diner
- Night 1 minigame: You play as Shadow Lockjaw and you need to find the Kitty FazCat animatronic. When you approach her, her eyes will start glowing
- Night 2 minigame: This time you need to find the room with Foxy and approach him. He will also have glowing eyes.
- Night 3 minigame: Now you need to find Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, and Chica. They are in the same room as Foxy.
- Night 5 minigame: You play as Vincent and need to find a room with Lockjaw and Sugar suits, as well as the Lockjaw child. You will need to aproach the child and he will run around the room and hide in the Lockjaw suit. He is crying, while the springlocks fail due to the tears, and the child dies inside of the suit.
- Night 8 minigame: Repeats the night 5 minigame, with a difference of that we play as Shadow Lockjaw again. In the room with the Lockjaw child it is very dark comparing to night 5 minigame.
These minigames are triggered in special ways, and are key to getting the good ending.
