Week 7, titled Tankman, is the seventh set of levels in Friday Night Funkin'. It was released on the 18th of April, 2021 as a Newgrounds exclusive.



Boyfriend faces off against Tankman, the leader of the Tankmen.


Week 7 takes place in the "Restricted Military Zone." This location is set in the middle of a sandy battlefield surrounded by small piles of brick rubble. Far back within the landscape are mountains and several war-torn buildings. Tall columns of smoke rise from somewhere in the horizon. Steve, a Tankman soldier with round goggles, operates a tank and will occasionally drive by in the background. Private Skittles, a sniper belonging to an enemy faction, can be seen in the distance keeping a lookout from his watchtower with his sniper rifle poking out. Two Tankmen with insignias on their arms are seen in the foreground carrying and pointing rifles. A small audience of Tankmen spectate the rap battle.

In the third track, the two Tankmen in the foreground are gone, having been killed by Pico during the cutscene for Stress. Other rifle-carrying Tankmen with rectangular goggles and insignias on their arms will continuously rush in from the left and right sides of the background, each one getting killed once they get close enough.

Unique Effects

During the first two tracks, Girlfriend is held at gunpoint by the 2 Tankmen in the foreground who rest on the smaller speakers, forcing her to raise her arms as she bops her head to the tempo of the music.

During the last track, Pico takes Girlfriend's place on her speakers, remaining crouched while dual wielding a pair of guns. He provides cover fire, shooting the approaching Tankmen in the background to the tempo of the music while twirling his guns in a flashy manner. Boyfriend now holds Girlfriend up around the waist.

If the player fails any of the tracks in this week, Tankman will insult and mock Boyfriend with a randomly selected phrase at the beginning of the Game Over screen. In the Game Over screen for Stress, Boyfriend and Girlfriend's skeletons are shown, and retrying will play an animation where Girlfriend will raise her arm cheerfully and have smiling eyes.

Randomized Phrases

These are the phrases randomly uttered by Tankman during the Game Over screen. They are listed in no particular order.

  • Upon the week's release, the Newgrounds site crashed due to an influx of users rushing to play it.
    • The crash started the day its exclusive preview was released, on the 18th of April, 2021, approximately around 6:00pm EST. Although the site eventually recovered, the game was temporarily disabled for 2 more days until more server capacity was made.
  • ninjamuffin99 has stated on his Twitter page that Week 7 will be exclusive to Newgrounds until Newgrounds reaches the first or second result on Google when searching up "friday night funkin'". This was due to other online game sites reuploading the new content and surpassing the original upload in popularity while the site was down.
    • According to a Tweet posted by ninjamuffin99 on the 22nd of April, 2021, Week 7 will probably be out on and the source code on GitHub as soon as the level that comes after Week 7 is released due to the upcoming level's current progress.
    • Eventually, on the 22nd of June, 2021, Newgrounds reached the first result on Google when searching "friday night funkin'". ninjamuffin99 didn't expect this to happen and said that he might put Week 7 on and the source code on GitHub before the next level releases.
      • According to him, this is because he would have to remove the next level's data from the Friday Night Funkin' source code in order to release the Week 7 update on and GitHub as a download on Windows and potentially macOS and Linux, which he says would be even more extra work compared to simply finishing what is in progress.
  • Ritz The Rat was previously believed to be the antagonist of this week as a result of ninjamuffin99 temporarily posting a GIF of Ritz on Twitter. However, PhantomArcade accidentally revealed that Tankman would be this week's antagonist during a live stream, confirming that this was not the case.
  • Week 7 is the third week in the game that's named after its antagonist, the first being Daddy Dearest and the second being Pico.
  • This is the first week to change the player character's appearance between songs.
  • This is the first week to have fully animated and voice-acted cutscenes in between songs, though Tankman himself is the only character with a speaking role.
  • This is the second week to have a Newgrounds mascot star as an antagonist, the first being Pico.
    • Coincidentally, Pico himself makes an appearance in this week as well.
    • This is also the third week to have a guest character, the first being Spooky Month and the second being Pico.
  • This week marks Pico's third appearance in the game, the other two being his own eponymous week as an antagonist and Week 5 as a background character. In this week, Pico takes the place of Girlfriend on her speakers during the track Stress, shooting at Tankmen.
  • This is the first week to have a playable duet, in this case being Boyfriend and Girlfriend.
  • This week reveals that Girlfriend has a demonic internal appearance, as seen briefly during the cutscene during Stress as well as whenever Boyfriend receives a Game Over during that song, where it's found that Girlfriend has horns and sharp teeth.
  • One of Tankman's Game Over lines is similar to a line from TANKMEN 1, that one being, "You know, sometimes you just make me wanna cry."
  • Some of Tankman's Game Over lines break the fourth wall, and some seem to be directed at the player themself.
    • "Maybe you should go play Week 1 again." [laughing]
    • "You gotta press the arrows, kid. Not slap your keyboard like your blind uncle, what?"
    • "I hope you're not some internet streamer screaming like a sociopath right now!"
    • "Hey, here's some Friday Night Funkin' lore for ya! I don't like you."
    • "My dead grandmother has more nimble fingers! C'mon!"
  • The trailer theme for the game's Kickstarter campaign, Klaskii Romper, can be heard during the cutscene for Stress.
  • This is the third week where something is moving along in the background. The first were the subway trains during Week 3 and the second being the passing cars in Week 4.
  • Tankman has some voice lines that were left unused as shown in a Tweet as well as a Newgrounds submission made by PhantomArcade. Some of them are as follows:

  • According to a Tweet made by JohnnyUtah, he came up with almost every one of Tankman's Game Over quotes.
  • JohnnyUtah stated in a Tweet that Week 7 is "not really" canon to the TANKMEN series.
    • In another related Tweet, he said to consider them alternate timelines.
  • On the 3rd of May, 2022, Week 7's assets were released by PhantomArcade.
    • Two frames in the official asset dump for the week show Pico kicking Girlfriend off the speakers before killing the two Tankmen. As these frames are not in the current build of the game and Girlfriend instead simply teleports into Boyfriend's arms, it means that the cutscene for Stress is currently unfinished.
