Boyfriend, Friday Night Funkin'


Boyfriend is the protagonist of Friday Night Funkin'. He is on a mission to gain approval to date his Girlfriend, but must sing off against her evil ex-rockstar father, Daddy Dearest, as well as the many other characters that stand in his way.


Appearance

Boyfriend is a young, light-skinned man with spiky cyan hair. He wears a white T-shirt with a red prohibition sign, baggy blue pants, red sneakers and a backward red cap with a dark blue brim. He holds a microphone in his right hand while keeping his left hand in his pocket.

During Week 5, he wears a red parka, light blue pants and brown snow boots.

During Week 6, his regular appearance is rendered in a 32-bit style.

During the last track of Week 7, he holds Girlfriend up by the waist with his left hand.

Trivia

  • ninjamuffin99, PhantomArcade and Kawai Sprite have all stated that Boyfriend's name is simply Boyfriend.
  • Boyfriend is his only canonical and official name. However, ninjamuffin99 has intentionally confused the community by spouting out random names on his Twitter and TikTok accounts. There have been several attempts to figure out his name (names in bold have been de-confirmed), including:
    • Keith (on Twitter, has been de-confirmed several times to not be his name).
    • Evan (on TikTok, based on misheard lyrics from the song Monster).
    • Luis (on Twitter, named after Luis).
    • Cam (on Twitter, based on ninjamuffin99's real name, Cameron. It was commonly used after becoming the first result when searching for Boyfriend's name on Google).
    • Jack (on TikTok, not de-confirmed so far).
  • Boyfriend has the most unused animations in the game.
  • Boyfriend makes a cameo appearance in Sr Pelo's animation "Spooky Month - Unwanted Guest" as a background plushie. The "Spooky Month" series is also where the characters Skid and Pump originate from.
  • Bopeebo used to be the only song to use Boyfriend's V-sign pose during gameplay.
    • With the release of the Week 7 update, Boyfriend strikes this pose during Tutorial as well.
  • Boyfriend lacks a "danger" icon in Week 6.
  • Boyfriend knows a lot of fingerboard tricks, and it's one of the reasons he won Girlfriend's heart.
  • Boyfriend's favorite Newgrounds game is Newgrounds Rumble.
  • Boyfriend's hair is not dyed and is naturally cyan.
    • One of Tankman's Game Over quotes questions (and mocks) the nature of his hair color, stating, "I guess your shitty blue hair dye got in your eyes. It's okay, it happens to all of us."
  • Boyfriend is canonically 19 years old.
  • A popular headcanon within the FNF community was that Pico is Boyfriend's ex. This headcanon gathered so much traction that Tom Fulp, the creator of Pico, tweeted jokingly that "this is official Pico 2 canon," leading people to believe that it was true. ninjamuffin99 has stated that this was a joke, but later changed his mind and confirmed it was canon.
    • ninjamuffin99 and PhantomArcade have confirmed that Pico and Boyfriend are exes on Reddit, Twitter and Twitch several times.
      • This also means that Boyfriend is bisexual.
        • On the 1st of April, 2021, Tom Fulp updated the original Pico's School game for April Fool's day, ending with Pico revealing to Casandra that he and Boyfriend are a couple and everyone at his school accepts them. The day after, this version would be released as a separate game set in an alternate timeline called "Pico's School: Love Conquers All."
  • Boyfriend is canonically so reckless and overconfident that he's essentially fearless.
    • PhantomArcade also clarifies that, just like Girlfriend, Boyfriend is far too dumb to be afraid of many things.
      • However, like Girlfriend, Boyfriend appears to be afraid of lightning, as shown in Week 2. Whenever lightning strikes, Boyfriend will briefly wince and shudder.
  • Boyfriend loves pepperoni pizza from Dominos.
    • Boyfriend also loves donuts the most out of any character in the game.
      • Boyfriend likes BRISK iced tea and milk, as confirmed in a Reddit AMA.
  • ninjamuffin99 has stated that Boyfriend's voice is not a language, but just random sounds he makes.
  • Not much is known about Boyfriend's parents. The only information known about them is that they work in accounting.
  • Ritz is confirmed to be Boyfriend's brother, described by ninjamuffin99 as a Stuart Little situation.
  • Boyfriend is neurodivergent, as he has ADHD and is autistic, confirmed by PhantomArcade during a livestream.
  • Boyfriend likes to listen to Kanye West music, confirmed by ninjamuffin99 during a Reddit AMA.
  • There is a possibility that Boyfriend's attire, from his red prohibition sign t-shirt, blue pants and red and white shoes, was inspired by a character from a 2009 Flash animation by Newgrounds user Zarla around the 1:52 mark.
