Trivia

  • TFF-Update-Springtrap
    The last page features an artwork of a massively-damaged animatronic resembling Springtrap, with mass of glitching statics from his left side. What media this artwork refers to is not known.
  • The book, at the moment, is filled with errors (all of which can be seen here) and even fan-art (all of which can be seen here)
    • Scott Cawthon confirmed that he will work with Scholastic to fix them.[1]
  • One of the screen-shots shows the player having 1,000 points, which is impossible to have ingame (because if the player selects the one companion that which grants them this amount of points, XOR will add more animatronics to the night).
