Also, check on the curtain in Pirate Cove from time to time. The character in there seems unique in that he becomes more active if the cameras remain off for long periods of time.
Phone Guy, explaining Pirate Cove on Night 2, Five Nights at Freddy's

Pirate Cove is a location in Five Nights at Freddy's, an abandoned area within Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, and Foxy's starting location.

The only inhabitant of this area is Foxy. No other animatronics will be seen in this area. Foxy operates using a different mechanic than the other animatronics: if the player checks the camera for this area (CAM 1C) too much or too little, Foxy will slowly emerge from behind the curtain and sprint towards The Office, giving the player a short lapse of time to close the left door before he attacks.


Pirate Cove is closed off by a large, cylindrical, purple-colored curtain, decorated with stars and sparkles. There stands a sign, also decorated with stars, in front of the curtain that reads, "-Sorry!- Out of Order," which sometimes changes to "IT'S ME" when Foxy leaves.

Two lights can be seen on the back wall, one on either side of the curtain. There are also star decorations hanging from the ceiling, and the floor is tiled black and white.


  • Should the player notice that Foxy has escaped Pirate Cove, it is recommended that they lower the Monitor and shut the left door before viewing the West Hall camera. This will give the player a much better chance of survival from Foxy.
  • Sometimes when Foxy has left Pirate Cove, the sign that normally reads "-Sorry!- Out of Order" will instead read as "IT'S ME" (as can be seen here), a phrase associated with the hallucinations which Mike Schmidt experiences.
    • Oddly, if one compares the "-Sorry!- Out of Order" sign to the "IT'S ME" sign, the stars on the sign appear to shift to one side.
  • The singing that can be heard at random points throughout the game comes from Pirate Cove, supposedly from Foxy.
    • The singing will become louder if the player views Pirate Cove.
  • According to the map, Pirate Cove is located in the lower left corner of the Dining Area, occupying space in the same way as the Show Stage.
    • Oddly, the area around Pirate Cove is tiled black and white while the rest of the Dining Area floor is tiled blue and red.
  • The small dots on the curtain appear to be phosphorescent, while the large stars do not.
  • Oddly, if the player views CAM 2A (West Hall) to trigger Foxy's sprinting animation, then switching to CAM 1C (Pirate Cove), then quickly lowers the Monitor and raises it again before Foxy either bangs on the door or reaches The Office, an image of The Office will be seen through CAM 1C instead of Pirate Cove.
  • Pirate Cove appears in one of the Death Minigames in the second game. In the mini-game, Foxy travels in and out of Pirate Cove to entertain the children, but when he runs out the third time, a figure is near the curtain. When Foxy goes into this room, the children are all gray hinting that they were killed. Foxy later jumpscares the player.
  • The Pirate Cove camera was originally next to the West Hall entrance instead of being located in front of the curtains, as indicated by the beta Monitor pictures.
  • This is one of only four areas in which only one animatronic can be seen in, the others being the Backstage, West Hall Corner, and the Supply Closet, all of which only Bonnie passes through.
