Ever since the launch of the original Five Nights at Freddy’s game, there has been a massive online community that wholeheartedly supports and loves everything these horror games have to offer. This community includes a long list of YouTubers who have created popular theories surrounding the game’s lore and other creators who have recorded their scream-filled reactions to the game.
The creators of the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie were savvy enough to include some of the most popular YouTubers from this community in the film via small cameos. If you want to see if your favorite YouTuber made it into the movie, then check out the list below.
This list will include some very minor spoilers for the Five Nights At Freddy’s Movie
The majority of the YouTuber cameos in the Five Nights At Freddy’s movie are photos on the employee of the month board in Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, meaning that these YouTubers were all presumably killed by the animatronics before the events of the movie. The first cameo you see is Razzbowski, a YouTuber who plays various horror games and has constantly uploaded videos about every Five Nights at Freddy’s game.
In the film, Razzbowski is the employee of the month in January, which is a subtle nod to just how long Razzbowski has been making content about the games. Since he is one of the first YouTubers who originally started making content about the first game, he was slotted into the first employee of the month photo.
Similar to the other YouTubers on this list, Bazamalam is another content creator who is deeply investing in the horror and gaming communities, which of course caused him to stumble upon Five Nights at Freddy’s. Bazamalam has been posting about Five Nights at Freddy’s for so long that he was even given early access codes to some of the sequels, and played them alongside another YouTuber named 8-Bit Ryan.
In terms of the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, Bazamalam is another cameo on the employee of the month board, this time in March. On top of his small cameo, he even got to visit the set of the film with some of his fellow YouTubers and can be seen posing next to the Chica animatronic in a picture.
FusionZGamer is a YouTuber who originally started posting content in 2011, where he would invite his viewers to watch him play various video games. Eventually, he stumbled upon the aforementioned Five Nights at Freddy’s, and quickly began creating content surrounding all types of horror games.
In the movie itself, FusionZGamer is another YouTuber who is included on the employee of the month board, this time taking up June’s spot. Along with his cameo in the film, FusionZGamer was also included in popular ad campaigns for the games, including a collaboration with the popular figurine company YouTooz.
As July’s employee of the month, Dawko is another YouTuber who regularly posts about Five Nights at Freddy’s. Specifically, Dawko not only posts about playing the game but also interviews and speaks with people who helped make the game what it is today.
On his channel, Dawko has interviewed voice actors and developers of different games in the series, allowing his viewers a glimpse into the inner workings of the developmental process. Dawko has even snagged an interview with Scott Cawthon, the creator of the entire Five Nights at Freddy’s series.
3 8-Bit Ryan
As he’s known as one of the premiere video game horror YouTubers on the entire platform, it is no surprise that 8-Bit Ryan got a small cameo in the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. Similar to his other peers, he can be seen on the employee of the month board, this time in the December slot.
8-Bit Ryan is a YouTuber who plays all types of horror games on his channel, which of course led him to play all the Five Nights at Freddy’s video games. Similar to other content creators on this list, 8-Bit Ryan has also been given exclusive access to certain Five Nights at Freddy’s games before they launched, so it is no surprise that he was included in the film.
A Shocked Cab Driver
As one of only two in-person YouTuber cameos in the movie, CoryxKenshin’s impact on the Five Nights at Freddy’s fandom cannot be overlooked. CoryxKenshin is a popular YouTuber who specializes in combining horror and comedy in his playthroughs, so he constantly posts content about Five Nights at Freddy’s and has even been given early access to some of the games.
In the film, CoryxKenshin plays a fearful cab driver that takes one of the main characters, and a broken down animatronic, on a ride. While he does not play a major role in the film, fans of this YouTuber will be happy to know that his character does experience quite the fright.
1 MatPat (Game Theory)
This Waiter Has A Theory
MatPat is arguably one of the most recognizable gaming YouTubers, as he created a popular series on YouTube called Game Theory. Both the YouTube channel and MatPat work together to provide discussions about popular gaming series, which include discussions on the lore of the animatronics in Five Nights at Freddy’s.
In the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, MatPat has a physical cameo as a waiter in a diner, and even utters his famous catchphrase, “That’s just a theory,” while serving the main characters. Although it may be a small cameo, MatPat still provides the audience with a small explanation about the animatronics.
