Jump to navigation Jump to search

Girlfriend, alternatively referred to as the Girlfriend, is the deuteragonist of Friday Night Funkin'. She is Boyfriend's partner and the daughter of Daddy Dearest and Mommy Mearest. She is usually seen sitting on top of a stereo, bopping her head to the tempo of the music, cheering Boyfriend on, and keeping track of combos. She is the first opponent faced as she teaches the player how to play the game with her only track, Tutorial.


Girlfriend is a young woman with light skin and long, thick auburn hair. Two short locks of hair stick out of her head, one being much smaller than the other, and the shine on her hair resembles a skull. She wears a sleeveless red minidress and matching high heels. Her fingernails are painted red, as shown in her singing animations, where she points with both hands in the direction of the arrow note being hit. She normally sits with her legs crossed on a large gray speaker, with two smaller gray speakers laying beside the large one. She is drawn in a chibi style.

During Week 4, her hair gets blown to the right from being on top of a moving car.

During Week 5, her sleeveless red minidress has a fluffy white collar, and she wears matching red gloves with white cuffs, white thigh-high stockings with small red bows, and yellow bell earrings. The speakers she sits on are all wrapped in festive Christmas lights with green wiring.

During Week 6, her regular appearance is brightened and rendered in a pixel art style. Her stereo has added shading and shine.

During the Week 7 tracks Ugh and Guns, she has her hands up as she is held at gunpoint by two Tankmen crouching on the two smaller speakers. During the week's last track, Stress, she is held up from her waist by Boyfriend.

In the Ludum Dare prototype, she sits on a dark blue-magenta winners' podium resembling stairs.


Girlfriend is portrayed as a young, mysterious woman. With a love for cherry soda and her boyfriend, she seems to be calm and collected in almost any situation, even in the face of death. Being a demon, she seemingly possesses a great deal of power, but she mostly chooses to hide it. She is always seen with Boyfriend at her side, courtesy of true love, as she genuinely loves him very much.

Like Boyfriend, Girlfriend lacks intelligence to the point of being unafraid of almost anything.[3] In general, she either does not realize when she is in danger or is confident that she can get out of such situations,[4] which may also be due in part to the power she has. Her lack of intelligence can result in her getting into difficult situations, such as getting her hand stuck in peanut butter jugs and having to wait for hours for someone to help get it out.[5] However, she is still capable of making smart decisions and knows what to do when dealing with taxes[6] and facing death.

Girlfriend has been diagnosed with ADHD and ASD.[7] The only individual she has been shown speaking to is Boyfriend. In Week 6 and Week 7, she does not speak at all, and she seems to barely acknowledge the opponent, if at all. Furthermore, she occasionally has poor object permanence.[8] Girlfriend's talents as an artist and painter show that she is a creative individual. She has a poor concept of time, too, which is a common ADHD trait. She doesn't know very well how to handle money, either; she will normally make commissions (due to being an artist), but she will ask for 1 trillion dollars,[9] or when she has to pay for a hamburger, she will pay less than what the hamburger costs.[10]

Girlfriend has been described as being mean "in her own special way."[11] She also likes to do immoral things, appearing to not care about the consequences of her actions as long as she gets what she wants. For instance, using her mother's limousine, she and Boyfriend hold up McDonald's drive-through slots as they hold the store hostage to get whatever food they want.[12]


Girlfriend is known to have multiple powerful abilities, but the details that can be inferred about them are limited at this time. In the cutscene for Stress, it is shown that Girlfriend can make her eyes gleam red and her skin turn a light shade of purple, acting as a visual indicator of her using (or preparing to use) her demon powers. It has also been directly stated that Girlfriend can use demon magic, including some form of shapeshifting, as she is able to give herself a penis.[13]

Girlfriend appears to have some form of invincibility or immortality, as she was apparently completely unharmed after falling from a plane, which her parents even knew would not be a problem for her.[14] Additionally, an official Girlfriend shirt design shows bat wings in her shadow and a heart tail attached to the letter d in the text with her name,[15] both features of succubi. It was stated that the design reveals one of her future abilities.[16]


Daddy Dearest

Daddy Dearest, the father of Girlfriend, likely has good intentions with his daughter, but he is highly overprotective of her. He will not let her date whomever she wants and even tries to kill her boyfriend after he beats the father in a singing battle, which occurs after he stops the couple from having sex. He does not seem to care about how killing Boyfriend will affect his daughter.

Mommy Mearest

Mommy Mearest is Girlfriend's mother. Like with Daddy Dearest, she is presumably well-intentioned with Girlfriend, but she also won't let her and Boyfriend date and is very overprotective. Mommy Mearest seems to be just as willing to try to kill Boyfriend as her husband is, not caring about the consequences that murdering him will have on Girlfriend. However, she does hand down clothes and iPhones to her daughter, showing that she cares about giving Girlfriend nice things. Girlfriend is willing to steal from her mother, as she and Boyfriend engage in the theft of Mommy Mearest's limousine in order to hold up the entire drive-through slot at McDonald's.[12]


Boyfriend is Girlfriend's partner. The two love each other very much and are never shown to be apart. Boyfriend is determined to do whatever he can to stay with Girlfriend and protect her, including by singing off against her parents and others, even when in dangerous situations. Their closeness is shown when Boyfriend happily catches Girlfriend and receives a hug from her during the cutscene for Stress thanks to true love.


Not much is known about how well Pico and Girlfriend are acquainted with each other. It is possible that Pico does not like or care about Girlfriend very much, as he readily kicks her off her speakers in unused frames of the animation where Pico leaps in from the sky in the cutscene for Stress.


In artwork found in the art booklet that comes with the CD of Friday Night Funkin' - The Official Soundtrack Vol. 1, Henchmen can be seen purchasing alcohol and snacks for Girlfriend.

Skid and Pump

Skid and Pump are tricked into believing that Girlfriend is made of candy by Monster. He tasks the children with getting Girlfriend for him so that he can eat her. The spooky kids challenge Boyfriend to a rap battle for her, but they just want to play[17] and don't really follow through with the task given to them. Girlfriend doesn't seem concerned as Skid and Pump sing with Boyfriend, happily spectating the battle.


Monster wants to eat Girlfriend, and he sings in gruesome detail about how he plans to do this. However, even with Monster's constant threats, Girlfriend is evidently not afraid of him during his songs.


Senpai is likely someone whom Girlfriend has known for a long time as a love interest in her dating sim game. After Girlfriend is sent into the game, Senpai quickly falls in love with her after meeting her, believing her to be a "new fair maiden" who came "in search of true love." This makes sense as Senpai aims to win the player's heart, and the dating sim is Girlfriend's. He challenges Boyfriend to a singing battle to determine who can be with her. When he loses, he gets angry but is still determined to win Girlfriend over, threatening to castrate Boyfriend after getting freaky with Girlfriend.


Spirit knew Girlfriend when she was a young child, as he has been trapped in her dating sim game for 14 years[18][19] and recognizes her after escaping Senpai's body. He doesn't seem to be happy to see her, likely due at least in part to her being the daughter of the person who trapped him in the game, but there may be another reason that is currently unclear. Because of his apparent distorted sense of justice, Spirit considers it "only fair" to take Boyfriend and Girlfriend's bodies for himself in order to escape the game and get revenge on Girlfriend's father. He fails to do this, however, with Girlfriend and Boyfriend simply leaving Spirit behind in the game after her man beats the specter.


When Girlfriend and Boyfriend end up in the Restricted Military Zone, Tankman has his soldiers hold Girlfriend at gunpoint. However, Tankman and his men are bored, so they do not immediately kill her. Tankman is very rude to Girlfriend, insulting her appearance and being vulgar toward her and Boyfriend. When he orders his men to kill the couple after he loses twice, Girlfriend happily reveals her demon powers, showing her preparedness to fight back if necessary and that she isn't afraid of the Tankmen.



  • Girlfriend is the first character to not have a "danger" icon, the others being Daddy Dearest, Boyfriend in Week 6, Senpai and Spirit.
    • However, the reason why she doesn't have one is most likely because she's not really in danger of losing during Tutorial since she's only teaching the player how to play the game.
  • Girlfriend is the first opponent to not use a microphone, the second being Monster and the third being Spirit.
  • Girlfriend is the first opponent to lack any tuned vocals, the second being Pico.
  • Girlfriend and Monster are currently the only characters in the game to fully sing in English instead of using a chromatic scale or gibberish.
  • Girlfriend is tied with Boyfriend and Spirit for having the least tracks out of any character in Friday Night Funkin', having one each.
  • Prior to the WeekEnd 1 update, if the player failed to hit a note during a 10-note combo or greater, Girlfriend would briefly cry. If the player broke a combo streak between 5 and 9 notes, however, she would have still cried, but the animation cut off early, usually only lasting a few frames. However, this wouldn't occur in Week 4 and Week 6, as there were no versions of her crying animation for those weeks.
    • A variant of this animation is used in the cutscene for Guns after she is insulted by Tankman.
  • Girlfriend is afraid of thunder and lightning;[20] she will briefly react fearfully whenever they occur along with Boyfriend in an animation in Week 2.
  • Girlfriend has several unused voice clips that were going to be used as dialogue sound effects but have been scrapped alongside the dialogue.[21][22][23][24][25] In the voice clips, Girlfriend makes random sounds like beeps and boops, similar to the beeping sounds that Boyfriend makes.
  • An unused animation of Girlfriend resembling her sprite from the Game Over screen for Stress is present in the Flash file for her being held by Boyfriend in Week 7.[26] Titled "girlfriend inards," the sprite's exact purpose is unknown, although it may have been intended for the unfinished beginning cutscene for Week 6.
  • Whenever Newgrounds is down for maintenance, an image of Girlfriend pouring beer on the Newgrounds servers appears between the "Newgrounds Is Down / Please Stand By" message. The art for Girlfriend was made by Arzonaut.
  • In early stages of development, Girlfriend was meant to cross and swap her legs during her idle animation. During the one frame when both legs were separated, there would've been darkness and sparkles in her dress. This idea was scrapped due to time constraints.[27]
  • In the Week 7 update, Girlfriend's unused cheering animation was added to the Tutorial.
  • On the 22nd of May, 2022, JohnnyUtah uploaded a piece of artwork depicting a much more muscular and seemingly older Boyfriend next to a surprised Girlfriend.[28] PhantomArcade has confirmed that he will find a way to officially implement it into Friday Night Funkin'.[29]
    • Comments made when the image was uploaded to Twitter revealed that the muscular Boyfriend is from an alternate timeline where he was forced to kill Girlfriend for unknown reasons[30] and that the Girlfriend in the image is a blow-up doll dressed to look like her that he's kept as a companion since the incident.[31]
  • In December 2020, ninjamuffin99 stated that his favorite Friday Night Funkin' character was Girlfriend, as he finds her cute.[32] However, in August 2022, he would instead state that his favorite character is Senpai.[33]
    • Another reason behind ninjamuffin99's fondness for Girlfriend is the fact that she is very unintelligent.[34]
  • One of Girlfriend's transition stickers lacks the bright colored outline the other stickers have. This sticker is the only one to have this property.


  • Girlfriend loves Cherry Dr. Pepper, as confirmed in a Tweet made by ninjamuffin99.[35]
    • She prefers Cheerwine, but could no longer obtain it due to moving to Philadelphia from "the south."[36] This was confirmed true by ninjamuffin99.[37]
      • Cheerwine is available in North Carolina, which suggests that she may have previously lived there, possibly near one of those stores.[38]
  • Girlfriend is a gamer and likes to play Tetris.[39]
    • An official comic reveals that Girlfriend also enjoys horror games and screams with delight whenever exposed to jumpscares.[40]
  • PhantomArcade has stated directly that, despite how she was depicted in their respective mods, Girlfriend would be too brainless to ever be afraid of characters like Whitty or Ruv.[3]
  • In the Week 7 track Stress, it's revealed through the Game Over screen that Girlfriend is a demon, much like her parents, despite her human-like appearance. In addition to her red skeleton and spiky teeth, she is also shown to have a pair of slightly curved black horns that protrude from her forehead. Given that they are only visible here, it is possible that either they are hidden underneath her bangs or they haven't grown out yet.
    • According to ninjamuffin99, the reason Girlfriend looks like a human is because of "true love."[41] Additionally, he has stated that this fact will come up later in the game.[42]
  • Girlfriend and Boyfriend cannot be hypnotized or mind-controlled into not loving each other. Their relationship is practically the only thing that occupies their minds, and they would die without it.[43]
  • Girlfriend would burn down her house if she tried to cook.[44] The only thing she can "cook" is PB&J sandwiches, and Boyfriend acts extremely enthusiastically whenever she makes them for him for dinner.[45]
    • Girlfriend also enjoys eating fistfuls of peanut butter as a snack, as she doesn't like waiting for the bread to toast. She sticks her whole hand in the jug and is too unintelligent to pull her hand out of it, so she stands where she is for hours until either her parents or Boyfriend find her and help her get her hand out.[5]
  • Girlfriend is neurodivergent, as she has ADHD and autism, confirmed by PhantomArcade during a live stream.[7]
  • Girlfriend is nice and chunky, just like Boyfriend likes her.[46]
    • Girlfriend was stated to weigh 900lbs in a Tweet by ninjamuffin99.[1] However, Boyfriend has been officially depicted carrying Girlfriend with no difficulty in multiple instances; it remains to be seen how this is explained.
  • Even when Boyfriend isn't slouching and when Girlfriend isn't wearing her heels, she is still taller than him.[47]
    • PhantomArcade has implied that Boyfriend and Girlfriend appear very short as a symbol of their innocence.[48]
  • In a Reddit AMA, it was confirmed that Girlfriend's favorite animal is a Hominid, not realizing that a Hominid isn't an actual animal.[49]
  • Girlfriend prefers to watch subtitled anime.[50]
  • In a Twitter sketch, it was hinted that Girlfriend is an artist.[51] This was later followed up by a sketch of her showing Boyfriend a painting she made of Pim Pimling and Charlie Dompler from Smiling Friends.[52] However, in a Twitch stream, it was confirmed that due to her severe lack of intelligence, she doesn't know how commissions work, meaning that she probably doesn't have an exact price on art commissions in general, though she sells her commissions for 1 trillion dollars.[9]
    • Girlfriend's art is also shown at the end of the FNF Erect Mode Sampler video, depicting her and Boyfriend holding hands happily on a sunny day.[53]
  • Girlfriend's favorite Newgrounds game is probably Alien Hominid, due to the cuteness of the titular character.[54]
  • Girlfriend uses hand-me-down iPhones from her rich parents, and she's only barely smart enough to use them.[55]
  • If Sonic.exe ever tried to mess with Girlfriend and Boyfriend, he could trap them in a nightmare dimension for all eternity, but if he mentioned there's no McDonald's, they would immediately kill him and escape.[59] If there was a McDonald's, they would presumably stay.[60]
    • If there was a McDonald's but its ice cream machine was broken permanently, they would be fine with just being given the sweetener milk bags that go in the machine instead.[61]
      • If they were told that there was no Burger King, they might actually prefer the nightmare dimension to reality.[62]
  • When Girlfriend and Boyfriend go to McDonald's, they normally get whatever they can pressure the window clerk to give them for free. They hold the store hostage, stealing Mommy Mearest's limousine and holding up the entire drive-through slot.[12]
    • If the McDonald's were to have no Chicken McNuggets included with the Happy Meal, they would start yanking all the iron bolts and screws out of the PlayPlace.[63]
  • In a situation involving Girlfriend and Boyfriend meeting Darth Vader, Girlfriend would start charging up in the background upon Boyfriend seeing Darth Vader coming ominously with his lightsaber out. Darth Vader would sense an ominous force and would start to get a chill within his suit; he would pull out his lightsaber and make sure he's ready to completely try to take on whatever's about to come at him. Boyfriend would then slam his microphone into the Fisher-Price control panel on his chest, leading to Darth Vader freaking out, coughing and dying. Boyfriend and Girlfriend would then start hopping on his back and beating him up, yanking on his helmet and smacking his bald, crispy head around.[64]
  • Girlfriend is crosseyed.[5]
  • When Girlfriend and Boyfriend sign up for a driver's license test, they use a fake ID, and they crash into trees and run away. As a result, the Henchmen are stuck driving Mommy Mearest's Porsche back, and she tears the Henchmen's fingernails and eyelashes off.[65]
    • Girlfriend and Boyfriend need fake IDs because they don't want the police called on them; they go to the same DMV every few months.[66]
  • Girlfriend and Boyfriend like Neon Genesis Evangelion, but only the scenes where things fight, as they are too unintelligent to understand the plot.[67]
  • Whenever Boyfriend fails a song and gets "blue-balled," Girlfriend holds his hand until he feels better.[68] Girlfriend is obliged to kneel to hold Boyfriend's hand due to being taller than him.[69]
  • Girlfriend never got far enough in her dating sim to see the sprite of Senpai as a catboy.[70]
  • Boyfriend likes drinkable yogurt, and Girlfriend is sometimes really nice and gets him some; if she gets him 5 of them, he will drink them so fast that he starts choking because he isn't swallowing fast enough, and he then spits it all over her face. Girlfriend buys them for him anyway because she loves him.[71]
  • If Boyfriend sees a poster for Planes, he throws up wherever he's standing, as he hates Cars with a passion. Sometimes, when he accidentally swallows things around the house that he's not supposed to, Girlfriend simply shows him the Planes poster, and they immediately get back whatever they're missing.[72]
  • When Boyfriend texts Girlfriend to ask if she wants Chick-fil-A, he knows to get extra Polynesian Sauce once she starts sending nudes.[73]
  • In the wintertime, when Boyfriend and Girlfriend look away from each other for more than 10 minutes and then look back toward each other, they hold their arms out wide and run toward each other to hug each other, as their object permanence is sometimes not very good. Sometimes they will go to kiss and accidentally bump into a cold pole and kiss it, and both get their tongues stuck to it for hours. The fire department even knows them by name.[8]
  • If Girlfriend became a worm, Boyfriend would still love her. While it would impact their love lives and change things, they could get used to it. Boyfriend would also figure out a way to change her back, even if it took him a decade.[74]
  • Girlfriend and Boyfriend have a poor concept of time, so occasionally they get really freaked out at night upon realizing that their local McDonald's is not open 24/7. When they see that it is closed, they think it is closed down, as the lights are off and no one is there. This scares them greatly, so they stay up all night holding each other and watching movies, trying to forget about it, and they can't sleep. The next morning, they go to McDonald's just to double check, and when they see people are working there again, they breathe out in happiness and go to order $20 worth of food using dimes in their pockets.[10]
  • Without her dress on, Girlfriend apparently has an incredibly large posterior.[75]


  • According to PhantomArcade in a Tweet, one of the core inspirations for Friday Night Funkin' is the 1981 anime adaptation of the manga Urusei Yatsura.[76] Girlfriend is presumably based on the series' main character's girlfriend Lum, who has a boyfriend named Moroboshi Ataru, whom Boyfriend is presumably based on in turn.
  • According to JohnnyUtah in a video made for the YouTube channel DidYouKnowGaming?, the blocks on which Girlfriend sat in the Ludum Dare prototype of Friday Night Funkin' were meant to be a podium serving to present her as a prize to the player. They were subsequently changed to speakers as a result of fanart and messages from fans who interpreted the boxes as speakers, which the developers thought was a great concept.[77] ninjamuffin99 has also Retweeted one fan's message with this interpretation and called it "Funkin history."[78]
  • Girlfriend's skeleton is based on the X-rays that Body-Snatchers would display in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.[79] The unused "girlfriend inards" sprite is particularly reminiscent of said X-rays.
  • Girlfriend's design was initially inspired[80] by the girl from Rhythm Heaven.[81][82]
  • PhantomArcade has stated that Girlfriend may have been inspired by the girl from Daicon IV Opening Animation without him even realizing it, as he has been a fan of the anime for a long time.[83] Both characters have auburn hair, red outfits and tremendous power.

  1. In a Tweet made in December 2020 by PhantomArcade, Boyfriend and Girlfriend were stated to be 19 years old. In a Tweet made in February 2021 by PhantomArcade, the two characters were stated to be 20 years old. It is unclear if PhantomArcade was confused in the later Tweet, if the two being 19 years old was retconned, or if Boyfriend and Girlfriend have no specific age and only a range. However, in a live stream PhantomArcade did in April 2022, he stated that Boyfriend and Girlfriend are 19 again. As the two have been stated to be 19 more often than not, the one instance of them being stated to be 20 may have been a mistake or a temporary retcon that ended up being scrapped.
