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.
In this death minigame you play as BFP locked inside of a unkown room with The Puppet’s Music Box. If you walk up to the Music Box the words “I’M SORRY” will flash up on the screen multiple times, shortly after this happens The Puppet will then automatically jumpscare the player.
In this minigame you play as Freddy inside of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, you will have to try to follow Golden Freddy throughout the location. After following him for a while, the player will eventually make it into a small party room, where you can see The Puppet quickly dashing at the player from the corner of the room, if the player doesn't move out of the way in time, The Puppet will then make the minigame end. However, if you manage to dodge The Puppet, the minigame will still eventually end no matter what (either by bumping into BFP or following Golden Freddy for to long).
In this minigame, you control Vincent at yet again, Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. After walking around for a little bit the player will eventually find the Parts/Service Room where you can see Bonnie, Chica, Foxy and Golden Freddy slumped up against the wall, with Freddy Fazbear noticeably gone. If you walk up to Golden Freddy the player will then be instantly jumpscared by Golden Freddy.
In this minigame you play as Golden Freddy at yet again, Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. After walking around for a little bit the player will eventually come into a small party room where you can see BFP standing across the room, if you try to get close to him the screen will start to violently flicker with the words “IT’S ME” popping up over and over again, the player will then be jumpscared by Golden Freddy, instantly ending the minigame.
Vincent Death Minigame
In this minigame you play as Vincent at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. In this minigame you can hear the FNaF 1 Night 4 Phonecall playing in the background, Vincent also noticeably has a phone up to his ear. When the Phonecall finishes the player is greeted by Golden Freddy’s Jumpscare.
Minigames return in The Return to Freddy's 2 These are once again activated with the player's death.
In this minigame you play as Lockjaw inside of an unknown location (presumably Frankburt's Pizza) in a room with six children. The player needs to constantly walk up to each of the children or else they will start to get very angry, turning red, once the player walks up to them they will become happy once again. The minigame will then automatically end if the player leaves any of the children angry for to long.
- This minigame is very similar to the "Take Cake to the Children" from FNaF 2.
Spring Bonnie Minigame
This minigame is very similar to the aforementioned "Lockjaw Minigame". In this minigame you play as Springbonnie inside of an unknown location (likely GoldieParaDiner), in a room with six young children A seventh child can also be seen wearing a blue shirt along with a black fedora crying outside of the building.
You must constantly give cakes to the six young children (which is done by walking up to them) or else they will become very angry, turning red. Giving them cake will make them happy again. After a little while a violet car will drive up to the crying child outside of the building, where Vincent will then jump out of the car and approach the child, as soon as he walks into the child will then disappear instantly ending the minigame.
Follow Puppet minigame
In this minigame, you play as Freddy Fazbear inside of Freddy Fazbears pizza... You must follow The Puppet to see where he’s going. When following Puppet throughout the location the player can see various dead children laying throughout the hallways. Golden Freddy can also be found in one of the rooms of the building, if approached he will disappear, Spring Bonnie can be found in one of the rooms too. Eventually the Puppet will guide Freddy all the way to the Prize Corner where The Puppet is now gone from, to end the minigame the player must walk into any of the dead children’s bodies.
- This minigame is very similar to the "SAVETHEM" minigame from FNaF 2.
Follow Golden Freddy minigame
This minigame is almost identical to the last one, the only difference is that you now play as Lockjaw instead of Freddy and you now follow Golden Freddy instead of The Puppet.
Scott Cawthon Minigame
In this minigame, you play as a glowing light blue figure (who heavily resembles Scott Cawthon) in a small grey room, BFP can also be seen curled up into a ball, crying in the back of the room, you must walk up to the crying child to end the minigame.
Shadow Lockjaw Minigame
The Office Minigame
In this minigame you play as either Lockjaw or Freddy locked inside of a room that heavily resembles an office. The player strangely can not leave the office no matter what they do and there is no legitimate known ways to beat the minigame, the only way to get back out is to close the game. This minigame might not have ever been finished and was just accidentally left in the final game.
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
After the player beats Night 1 the player will begin a minigame in which you play as Shadow Lockjaw inside of presumably Fredbear’s Family Diner but now abandoned. After walking around for a little bit the player will come across a small party room with Kitty FazCat and Dug laying up against the wall. If the player walks up to Kitty Fazcat she will turn on revealing small human-like eyes inside of her suit ending the minigame.
Night 2 minigame
In a similar fashion to the last minigame you control Shadow Lockjaw inside of Fredbear’s Family Diner yet again. After walking around for a bit the player will find another party room with a small showstage with Freddy, Bonnie and Chica standing on it along with Foxy slumped up against the wall. If you walk up to Foxy he will turn on revealing his eyes then ending the minigame. If you decide to go back to the other party room seen on Night 1, Kitty FazCat is noticeably gone.
Night 3 minigame
Very similar to the last 2 minigames you play as Shadow Lockjaw walking around Fredbear’s Family Diner yet again. After walking around for a little bit the player will find the same party room seen from the last minigame where a show stage can be seen with Freddy, Bonnie and Chica standing on it. Foxy is noticeably gone from the room. If you walk up to the show stage they will all turn on revealing their eyes instantly ending the minigame.
Night 5 minigame
Upon completing Night 5 the player is treated to one last final minigame. You control Vincent inside of Fredbear’s Family Diner just like all of the previous minigames. After wandering around for a little bit the player will find the Parts & Services Room where you can see Lockjaw and Sugar laying up against the wall. There is also a young child wearing a black fedora and blue shirt crying in the corner of the room. If you walk up to the child he will quickly dash to the other side of the room in fear, after chasing him from side to side of the room the young child will eventually get so scared of you that he decides to hide inside of Lockjaw, as seen as he gets into the suit he starts crying which activates the suit's torture mechanisms instantly killing him, the minigame will then end.
Night 8 minigame
After you beat Night 8 a short minigame will begin to play that is exactly like the Night 5 minigame, except you now play as Shadow Lockjaw instead of Vincent. Also once you get into the Parts & Service Room the room is a lot darker than it was before, however there is occasional bright flashes of light that light up the room so you can see better.
These minigames are triggered in special ways, and are key to getting the good ending.
I AM HIM/Backstory
The player can access this minigame by the same way as Night 8 in FNaF 2. When under load game you will see "I AM HIM" instead of night number.

- 1- Just proceed to touch The Puppet, resulting into ending the minigame and the player will restart the last night that it was playing.
- 2- Upon entering the room with The Puppet, touch one of the steps, you will be forced through it and fall into a room with Lockjaw. When touching him BFP will seemingly explode, and Lockjaw will glow yellow eyes, most likely meaning that the child went inside Lockjaw. You will then earn a Lockjaw plush.
