Vanessa, Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach

Vanessa A. is a security guard who will appear in the upcoming game Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach.

Physical Appearance

Vanessa has a white complexion with freckled bits on her face. She has blonde hair, apple green eyes, and has glossy lips. She appears to be wearing a white-colored security guard suit, with darker accented shoulder pads. She also has a dark gray cap and pants. In the gameplay trailer for Security Breach, it is shown that she also wears purple nail-polish. Her former co-worker Luis describes Vanessa as very beautiful and someone who can brighten up a room.


Vanessa is very protective and wary of her surroundings. She cares for Gregory and is shown to have a strong maternal instinct. As shown by the e-mails, Vanessa has a girly personality, showing a liking for fashion as she has worn rainbow streak hair extensions. She also likes baking, having ordered cupcake cookbooks and even likes puppies and appears to owns a glittery pink journal with pictures of them. However, Vanessa also appears to be very lonely. Luis mentioned that she once ordered chocolates for herself and pretended they were from her imaginary boyfriend, Brad.


She was formerly the Senior IT Representative at Fazbear Entertainment, Inc. based on the e-mails in Special Delivery. She later transferred to Freddy Fazbear's Mega Pizzaplex to work as a security guard.

This article or section contains a lot of speculation, which usually occurs from pre-release media, or just things that are still unknown, so please keep that in mind while reading. The page will continue to be updated with the most accurate information as more solid evidence is supplied.

  • There is various evidence that suggests that Vanessa and Vanny are connected in some way, and may in fact be the same person. A common theory is that she and Vanny are the same person with Glitchtrap controlling her, resulting in a Vanny alter-ego.
    • The two share very similar names, with Vanny seemingly being a contraction of Vanessa.
    • Special Delivery's unreleased emails seem to heavily imply that Vanessa and Vanny are indeed the same person, however this still needs to be confirmed.
    • Another huge piece of evidence is, in the gameplay trailer, Gregory appears to be hiding from her. Given she appears to be an ally in other content, it would be odd for the player to hide from her. This could hint that Gregory is aware Vanessa and Vanny are the same entity.
    • It is revealed in Special Delivery's scrapped e-mails, that Vanessa has requested a bunny-shaped cake for her birthday. This further hints at a connection between her and Vanny.
    • The Security Breach subtitle may allude to Vanessa being Vanny, as there would be a breach in security if a guard hired to work in the Mega Pizzaplex had ulterior motives and abused their position.
    • In the only media that shows Vanny and Vanessa together at once, neither character explicitly interacts with the other.
      • In the leaked poster, Vanny and none of the Glamrock Animatronics (par possibly Glamrock Freddy) seem to look at or acknowledge Vanessa being in the foreground.
      • While Vanessa may appear to be looking at Vanny in the Funko collectible statue, this may be a static pose for the character, and the figures are not representing a plausible scene. The two figures are also kept apart by a potted plant, possibly signifying a split personality.
    • Both characters wear white. This could be symbolic of their relation, or just circumstantial.
  • Vanessa's last name starts with an "A", which has lead to speculation that she could be an Afton. Though, no evidence proves this to be true, making it easily debunkable.


  • She is the first security guard of the franchise to be physically shown without being obstructed.
    • With the release of the Security Breach trailer, this also makes her the first fully modelled human to be seen in a main FNAF game mode.
  • She is also the first confirmed female security guard of the franchise.
  • Vanessa was born in September as seen in Special Delivery's unreleased e-mails. She is also stated to be 23 years old.
  • Vanessa's blonde hair and green eyes bear a physical resemblance to Elizabeth Afton, though this is most likely coincidental.
