Phone Guy, Five Nights at Freddy's 2

The Flashlight is a vital in-game tool item used in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, first used in Five Nights at Freddy's 2.

Physical Appearance

From the original Clickteam era series, the Flashlight is not normally physically seen in the games due to the first person perspective. In games where a flashlight does have a physical appearance, it is usually depicted as a large black generic flashlight.


The Flashlight, while mostly used for seeing through areas in pitch darkness, can usually halt or slow down the animatronics, but has limited amount of battery life.
