Blank the Animatronic is an antagonist in Five Nights at Candy's. He is a drawing attraction that is meant for children to write and draw whatever they want on him.
Blank's appearance is very similar to Springtrap of Five Nights at Freddy's 3, except that he doesn't have a nose, nor does he have ears; he shows much less signs of deterioration; and he has stubs where his ears are supposed to be. He also has a bright white color, and has an animatronic endoskeleton, unlike Springtrap. He also has a similar smile on his face, just like Springtrap. Blank also has faded colors on his body, where children took crayons and drew on him. Blank appears rather damaged, missing the covering on his forearm, the back of his head and missing a hand completely. This is because the previous guard completely smashed Blank with a wrench.
Starting from Night 3 (and rarely Night 2), he goes through transitions from lifting up his head, to then standing up, and then disappearing. Immediately after he leaves Cam 011, he will be in Cam 05, and checking on him while he is in this camera will cause him to punch the window in an attempt to break into The Office. If the player does not check the camera, it will slightly delay his attack. If the door protecting the window is up, he will attack and cause the power to flicker and the Office to shake but not be any threat. If the door is not shut when he attacks, he will punch the window and cause the glass to shatter and the power to flicker then go out shortly after; this will soon result in his jumpscare, ending in a game over screen.
- He is also known as "The Window Cleaner" by some fans, because the way he punche the office window would make him resemble a bad window cleaner.
- As Phone Guy explains, Blank has a special plastic coating that allows kids to draw on him.
- Similar to how Mangle in Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is a take-apart attraction as a result of being ruined by children.
- As stated by the Phone Guy in Five Nights at Candy's, Blank was repeatedly smashed with a wrench by the previous security guard, which was the cause of his damage.
- As stated by the Phone Guy, Blank has attempted to break through the security office's window before, and cracked the glass when doing so. However, when he attacks it in the game he causes the glass to completely shatter.
- The fact that the glass shatters in-game could be explained if the glass in the window never was replaced
- Some objects also move after Blank punches the window in the game.
- Blank is the only animatronic who attacks through the office window, making him the only animatronic who doesn't enter the office through the doors. An exception is Shadow Candy, which may look at you through the windows, but he never attacks the player.
- Blank acts much like Foxy in Five Nights at Freddy's 1, remaining in one camera and slowly preparing to move, and will instantly kill the player if the proper precautions are not taken.
- There is a rare chance that Blank may attack the player on early nights, although it is highly unlikely and will only happen near the end of the night.
- Seen in a Cutscene, Blank had eyebrows before he got broken.
- Blank emits a different sound in his jumpscare, along with RAT and Old Candy.
- Various Drawings on him are references to the FNaF series.
- Under his left eye, a drawing of Foxy can be seen.
- On his torso, a drawing of Freddy can be seen, but it is relatively small making it hard to see.
- On Blank's lower jaw, 2 written names can be seen. The names are "Jane" and "Bob".
- It's possible these are the twins, but this has yet to be confirmed.
- As evidenced by the FNaC 2 minigames, Blank appears to be the most popular attraction at Candy's Burgers & Fries by his being active the longest period of time, being introduced with Old Candy around 1964 and remaining in service at least until 1993, after Old Candy had been retired, the rest of the FNaC 1 cast had been introduced and retired (though The Penguin's retirement is unconfirmed), and a revamped Candy and Cindy had been introduced.
Blank appears to be the same as he was in the first game's minigame, but in the Night 6 2nd Minigame, the player can see Blank's original appearance.
Blank can be found sitting inactive in the Drawing Room but cannot be interacted with. Returning the third piece of Chester will end the minigame.
Starting from the Drawing Room, the player controls Blank to search the restaurant for four pages that, upon picking them up, are shown as children's drawings of their experiences at Candy's Burgers and Fries.
The chairs have changed color from red to green, and Chester's curtains have been removed completely, a new table having been moved into the room.
The pictures collected are: 1) a drawing of the faces of New Candy and New Cindy, 2) a stick figure of a sad/confused child that says "Where is Chester?", 3) a child drawing a mustache on Blank with the caption "For Blank", and 4) a kid playing guitar with New Candy and New Cindy with the caption "Our band!!!" After viewing the fourth collected drawing, the minigame will end.
Blank can again be found in the Drawing Room.
Blank can once again be found in the Drawing Room.
Starting in the Drawing Room, the player controls a notably cleaner, unbroken Blank to collect another set of five children's drawings scattered throughout the restaurant.
The pictures collected are: 1) a drawing of a cat's head with the captions "My favorite cat" and "Candy", presumably referring to Old Candy, indicating he was still in service at this point in time, 2) a child dancing to a boombox's music with Old Candy, 3) a sketch of the outside of the restaurant with the name "Candy's Burgers an(the name is unfinished)", 4) what is clearly the Old Candy animatronic in front of a trio of happy children labeled "Friends!!!".
After leaving the room with the fourth picture, the player is immediately made to view the fifth image, a frightful sketch of Shadow Candy's face. When the player finishes viewing the picture, they will see Shadow Candy standing in front of them, and the minigame will end.
While Blank the Animatronic doesn't appear in the main gameplay of Five Nights at Candy's 3, he can be seen in the Candy's Adventure Minigame in his Original Form and in the glitch minigame.
