Website Description

Little Nightmares Description

Trapped in the darkest depths of The Maw, starving and alone, Six’s world is one filled with danger. Most children would have already given up, but Six is different. She’s smart, and tough, and has a lovely yellow raincoat. She belongs elsewhere.

Little Nightmares II Description

Awaking in a world she cannot recognise, Six must learn to trust someone else if she is to stand a chance of survival. She has already seen more than any normal child ever should, but then... Six is not a normal child.

Appearance

Six is much smaller than the adult characters of the series, being barely a third of their height with an extremely small, thin frame. She wears a bright yellow raincoat that ends just above her knees with three buttons, two pockets, and a rhombus-shaped hood. Up close, she has messy black bob-cut hair with long bangs that completely obscure the top half of her face, only revealing her pointed chin and tiny nose and mouth. Her feet and hands are bare. Her only possession is a zippo lighter.

In Very Little Nightmares she wore a white, short-sleeved shirt and matching shorts. Her hair also looks neatly combed compared to other designs of her in other Little Nightmares media. This appearance of Six is similar to that of her in the concept art of the six children.

In Little Nightmares II, Six wears a charcoal shirt under a button-up, stained, gray cardigan that reaches to her knees instead of her trademark raincoat, which she later wears over the cardigan after she escapes the School with Mono.

When Mono finally finds Six in the Black Tower, he discovers her to have been changed into a distorted, monstrous creature with long arms resembling the Janitor's. Her body is completely warped and lanky, with her left foot seemingly dislocated judging by her structure. Her face is hidden by her grown-out hair, and stretched-out raincoat.

Background

Little is known about Six's past before the games and comics' events, but it's stated that she "belongs elsewhere"[1], implying that she used to live somewhere else before the events in the games and comics.

Personality

Like most characters in the Little Nightmares series, Six does not speak; however, her personality can be inferred through her actions. Six frequently displays the characteristics of an anti-hero; she does not seem to care about saving the other children trapped aboard the Maw and will do whatever it takes to survive and escape the resort by herself, with little to no help from anyone else. She has an insatiable hunger and will eat virtually anything to satisfy it, with her diet gradually becoming darker and more desperate over the course of the game. On one occasion, a friendly Nome offered Six who was starving a sausage to eat. Instead, she chose to feast on the Nome, displaying a clear indifference to killing, at least while overcome by her hunger.

To other children littered about the world, Six is ​​clearly distrustful. She almost never makes any attempt to help them or, as in the case of Mono, (initially) rejects any of their own help outright, demonstrating that she is concerned first and foremost with her own survival and escape. However, when she finds herself in a quandary, Six does seem capable of realizing what she can and cannot handle on her own. She joins forces with Mono in Little Nightmares II and, temporarily, with The Girl in the Yellow Raincoat. In Very Little Nightmares, it is revealed that Six is ​​not completely indifferent to other children's need for help (or perhaps has some reciprocal moral code) as she did try to save the main character from the persecuting Pretender after the Girl herself saved Six from death. However, this did not save the Girl; the mistress of the Nest survived, and launched herself and the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat into the ocean where they both presumably drowned.

It was initially thought that Mono was a special occasion for Six, as he offered his help. Although she refused at first, Six realizes that she can not traverse on her own and will require Mono's help in order to escape. After that, Six seems more than willing to work with Mono, remaining by his side as they travel through the Wilderness and the Pale City. The girl's confidence in Mono begins to grow after he saved her from the Bullies, accepting his help when he offers to help her get back on her feet. Despite not understanding the obscure reaction Mono had to the TVs, the heroine shows genuine concern and compassion for Mono as she constantly pulls him out of the transmission he uses to get into the hallway. Once he accidentally frees the Thin Man and she drags him away from the screen once again, Six seems concerned when Mono doesn't move at first, reaching her hand out to him before he finally regains consciousness. As the Thin Man approaches them from the TV, Six encourages Mono to flee, unfortunately his lack of reaction leads her to ignore her instincts to stay close to him as she witnesses the Thin Man preparing to exit the television screen. However, towards the end of the game, when Six caught Mono mid-jump during their escape from the Black Tower, instead of pulling him back from the cliff, she lets go of Mono and leaves him for dead. This incident may indicate that Six's own perspective had led her to no longer see Mono as an ally as she does not express any compassion or horror after letting him fall. However, in the Little Nightmares II secret ending, Six's obscure reaction after escaping the tower and leaving Mono behind, imply there may be additional factors to her betrayal.

In her distorted form, Six is very protective of her music box and initially not hostile toward Mono, that is, until he damages her music box with a mallet which apparently angers her. After that, Six chases Mono and will attack him if he gets too close, anywhere near her music box, or if he calls to her.

Throughout the journey in Little Nightmares II, Six displays savage tendencies after Mono rescues her in the School. This can be seen by Six killing a Bully with her bare hands, breaking some mannequin fingers, showing no remorse to the Doctor and instead finding some warmth by the fire that burns him, and kicking a Viewer's body. She also tends to make use of the environment when bored. At times, when Mono is idle, Six will sometimes goof around in the area she is in, for example, playing with a ball at the School's playground. Six also seems to display self awareness throughout the game, showing that she is aware of her savage tendencies.

Despite her apparent apathy and animal-like cravings, Six displays a high level of intelligence and slyness, being clever enough to evade and/or hide from her pursuers assisted by her inferior size. She is a proficient puzzle solver. She frequently throws objects at buttons she couldn't reach otherwise, for example; and towards the end of Little Nightmares, incapacitates the Lady using a mirror, having somehow deduced the weakness from all the shattered mirrors around her living quarters. After killing the Lady and absorbing her powers, Six uses it to kill the Guests who attempt to harm her, thus truly beginning to live up to the game's title.

Mechanics

Six, despite her age, is quite quick and agile. She is a gifted climber and can run for extended periods of time, thanks to which she manages to escape from enemies. If it is necessary for Six to activate a button that is too high, or if she needs to distract the enemy, the heroine can pick up any object and throw it with the necessary force. As additional mechanics, Six uses a lighter to illuminate places that are difficult to see in the dark. If one is available Six can light the nearest lantern or candle, which will be enough to constantly illuminate a portion of the terrain.

Six is shown to be rather strong in Little Nightmares II, being able to kill a Bully with her bare hands, tear off planks in which Mono was unable to and hold closed large metal doors with monsters behind them. She is also significantly faster, easily outrunning Mono when able to and also jumping much farther than him, but to her disadvantage, her stamina is worse than his as she tends to get tired and slow down when running for long periods of time. However, Six's role is quite important throughout her journey with Mono as she will assist Mono through different ways. For example, grabbing Mono's hand when he needs to jump over far platforms, giving Mono a jump boost when he needs to reach for handles or openings that are too high. Other minor examples include aiming the shotgun at the Hunter for Mono, helping Mono open stuck windows or vent doors, collecting objects (such as a power fuse) for later use, and distracting a bully to allow Mono obtain a key. When Mono calls or whispers to Six, she will respond and give assistance if necessary. But on most occasions, Six knows exactly what to do to help her partner, before he calls for help. If Mono is idle for too long, she will show hand gestures or call to him, telling him (or reminding players) to move.

In Six's monster form, she is initially not hostile towards Mono and will be lured out when she hears Mono's calls. When Mono gets too close, she will push him away with her arms but the strength of push won't hurt him. After Mono attempts to damage monster Six's music box, she will start to chase Mono. In the later parts of the game when monster Six is guarding her music box with her arms, She attacks either when Mono gets too close, or when she hears Mono's screams. Monster Six is quite sensitive to Mono's scream. Upon hearing Mono's scream, monster Six will cover her ears in shock for a moment, then proceeds to attack him with the intent to kill by following his echoes to determine his position.

Little Nightmares (video game)

At some point after her arrival, Six manages to break away from other children, taking refuge in the bowels of the Maw. Six has a nightmare, where she sees a tall woman in a brown kimono with a Japanese hair style and a full white facial mask turn back to look at her. Before Six gets a closer look at the woman, she wakes up in a gasp, inside a suitcase somewhere in the depths of the Maw.

Six starts to make her escape upon her awakening. She ventures through the deeper parts of the Maw, paying attention to her surroundings while avoiding the leeches who try to look for their next meal. Moments later, Six sees a monster far above, dragging a cage to a room. Six then climbs up a makeshift rope and arrives at the children's prison. Six walks past the lavatory and the playroom, then into the prison's main hall, finally into a bedroom. Inside the bedroom, Six sees the children sleeping while a door at the back begins to open slowly. A humanoid creature with abnormally long arms and a hat passes through the room. As Six proceeds to move, she is stricken by hunger pains for the first time. As Six slowly walks towards the prison's canteen, a child sees her and throws her a piece of bread to help. Six eats the bread then continues her escape, leaving the prison by climbing up a wall of neatly-piled cages and narrowly managing to the other side of a retracting passageway.

As Six ventures deeper, she finds a bright room with green wallpapers and very tall furniture. This room belongs to the Janitor: the monster Six saw earlier dragging a cage. In the midst of her journey, Six experiences a hunger pain again. With her hunger overpowering her, Six finds a clump of meat in a cage and devours it, not realizing that she has fallen into a trap. As Six eats the meat, the Janitor’s long arm closes the cage door, successfully trapping the girl.

Six awakens in the cage with several other captured children in the room as a long arm drags a large cage with a child away. Six shoves her cage from the inside several times, causing it to fall and break open. Six wanders around the Janitor's lair and alerts the Janitor by making a slight sound. Six escapes the Janitor's pursuit by jumping into a hatch that drops her in a dump area filled with luggage and shoes where she evades the shoe monster. As Six makes way back to the upper parts of the lair, Six continues to encounter the Janitor again in the toy room and the clock room. After evading the Janitor in the library, she distracts him with the sound of a television. Six finally gets rid of the Janitor by severing his arms with a watertight door. As the Janitor screams in pain from the distance, she then enters a tunnel in the walls, transcending through the Maw.

Six, now inside a tunnel, grabs a hook chained to an operating conveyor belt to proceed with her escape. As the belt moves, Six spots one of the Chefs in the distance. The conveyor belt shakes Six off, sending her into a meat storage area. Unfortunately, she is again stricken by hunger pains and eats a trapped rat alive to alleviate her hunger.

Six enters the kitchen area, where she confronts a pair of twin chefs who are in charge of preparing the Maw's feast. Six avoids being detected by the Chefs by sneaking through the kitchen. However, in a dish-washing room, Six discovers another conveyor belt and activates it, momentarily alerting one of the Chefs. As Six climbs up a pile of plates, the Chefs notice her presence and attempt to catch her by any means, however, Six narrowly escapes them and the kitchen area by grabbing one of the moving hooks. As she ascends, the frustrated chefs attempt to knock her off the hook by throwing wine bottles but fail.

Six reappears in a different area. This time, she is near the Maw's hull. She runs along a pipe and climbs up some ladders to reach a hole. As the screen brightens, Six finds herself outside the Maw, and continues climbing up along the Maw's side. As Six climbs, she sees a large boat on the ocean waters unloading a hoard of enormous creatures into the Maw's main entrance. Six eventually makes her way above the entrance onto the ceiling planks and pipes, where she has a closer look on the obese creatures marching one by one into the Maw.

Six comes across the Guest area, where the obese visitors of the Maw march into the restaurant. Six sees a geisha watching over the new arrivals from a balcony: She is the hostess of this event and the Governess of the Maw, "the Lady". Six observes the Guests driven mad by gluttony as they gorge themselves in tons of food, many of which attempt to eat Six as she passes through. After evading the Guests, she comes across one of the Chefs as he descends from the elevator. Six quickly hides in a bathroom as the Chef pursues her. After the Chef angrily leaves, Six breaks a double-sided mirror to escape through a secret room behind it and climb onto the ceiling pipes, where she momentarily sees the silhouette of the Chef violently chopping up something.

As Six arrives at the upper level of the restaurant, several Guests appear behind sliding doors, culminating in a massive flood of themselves as they pursue her. The chase ends as Six jumps to another balcony beyond the Guests' reach. Shortly after, however, Six's hunger pain returns. She wanders for a moment and encounters a friendly Nome offering her a sausage. Six weakly approaches it, seemingly reaching out to grab the sausage, however, upon discovering the true contents of the meat for much of the Maw's food, she devours the Nome instead of the sausage.

Afterwards, Six sees the Lady entering an elevator. After she leaves, Six then takes the elevator, arriving at the Lady's quarters. Six sneaks past the Lady, as she strokes her hair in front of a broken mirror, humming a tune over and over again. Six sneaks into the Lady's bedroom and breaks a vase, alerting the Lady of her presence. Using the key she found in the vase, Six unlocks a door to a dark room full of wooden mannequins. Suddenly, the door slams shut, moments later, the Lady appears and rapidly hovers towards Six, who narrowly escapes her by sliding into a narrow gap.

Six continues to wander around the Quarters and discovers a boarded room with a single mirror placed on a pillow atop a cabinet, illuminated by an unknown source of light. Six grabs the mirror and returns to the hall, where the Lady has been expecting her. As the lights dim, the Lady vanishes. A source of light directs Six to stay within boundaries as the Lady circles her, waiting for a chance to strike. The mirror proves harmful towards the Lady as Six forces her to look at her reflection, repelling her several times as she covers her face, screaming in pain. Upon exposing the Lady to the mirror for the one last time, the Lady loses her strength and falls to the floor, shattering the mirror and momentarily knocking out Six in the process.

As Six awakens, she suffers another hunger pain. Six slowly approaches the weakened Lady and bites her neck, killing her in the process. As Six stands, a dark aura surrounds her, the Lady's powers transfer to Six upon her death.

Six then returns to the Guest area, and starts to slowly walk along the restaurant's hallway. As Six slowly walks, the gluttonous Guests try to reach for her. However, the Guests are strangled by Six's new dark powers as their life forces are absorbed by her. One by one the Guests fall to the ground as the lanterns flicker. At the end of the hallway, some large doors open for Six, revealing the exit to the Maw's deck. Six leaves the Maw without a single look behind the chaos, disappearing into the sunlight while some Nomes gather around and watch her.

On the Maw's deck, Six patiently waits for a boat as its horn blows in the distance.

Secrets of the Maw

Though not the main playable character, Six makes a few appearances during Secrets of the Maw, revealing that her journey takes place at the same time as the Runaway Kid's. She first appears in a cage in the same room as the Runaway Kid before the Janitor drags him away. The Kid can later spot her crossing the room of shoes from a camera room in the Hideaway DLC.

Very Little Nightmares

In Very Little Nightmares, it is revealed that Six was also a prisoner in the Nest.

Six appears throughout the game, where she was literally followed by the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat; however, for most of the game the player cannot interact with her. The characters first directly interact with each other when the girl runs out of the Nest. Together they open the gate and run through the grounds to a shed in the trees. However, Six does not get to the entrance of the shed in time, and the girl locks herself inside leaving Six outside, thinking that the Butler is pursuing her, nodding to the game's intro.

The characters meet again when the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat descends from a cliff, trying to escape from the Pretender pursuing her. Six falls off a cliff and barely manages to grab onto a protruding root. The Girl in the Yellow Raincoat saves her from falling onto the rocks, dropping a tree under her. In gratitude for the help, Six tips a boulder onto the Pretender, who almost caught up with the Girl. However, her efforts are proved futile as this does not kill the Pretender. The Pretender pounces onto the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat and knocks both of them off the cliff into the water, where they both presumably die as the yellow raincoat emerges to the water surface. After the credits, a scene shows Six climbing down the cliff.

Little Nightmares II

Mono finds a shack and investigates it, he spots Six locked inside a closet through the gaps of a deteriorated door, playing with a music box. Mono frees her by breaking the door with a hatchet then offers her a helping hand. At first, Six is skeptical and avoids Mono, she tries to escape from the shack alone. After a failed attempt to reach a handle to the attic ladders for a key to unlock a door, Mono catches up and again offers Six his help. Although she is shocked to see him again, she realizes that he is not hostile and only wishes to lend a hand. Seeing that he's offering assistance necessary for an escape, she decides to trust Mono and stays by his side.

As Six and Mono sneak past the Hunter, they push open a tiny disposal box. The sound of the door alerts him. The Hunter grabs his shotgun and lantern and starts shooting at the children. Six and Mono evade the shots by hiding behind boxes, using them as shields. Six and Mono run and hide under a cliff to avoid him. After the Hunter leaves, Six walks out of the area she and Mono were hiding in, then offers Mono her hand as a sign that they should move on together. The children sneak past the Hunter by hiding under the tall grass, then quickly duck into a hole underground.

When they come out of the other side, Six gives Mono a helping hand for the first time to help him cross a bridge over to a field. As Six and Mono continue to move forward, they see the Hunter in the distance, unfortunately alerting a crow and simultaneously alerting the Hunter. He starts his rampage on the children once again. As the Hunter is shooting, Six and Mono both start climbing up wooden boards to get inside a decayed barn.

Six grabs Mono seconds before he falls from a cracked wooden plank. The two continue to flee from the Hunter, avoiding his shots as quickly as they can. She and Mono then jump outside the window and slide down the roof into a swamp. She and Mono then hide under a platform board after hearing the Hunter rushing out of the barn's door. As Six continues to swim and hide from the Hunter with Mono, they both then climb onto a small island. The children push down a log of which quickly alerts the Hunter. Six and Mono are able to use the log they had just pushed as cover to avoid detection as well as his gun shots. After the two swim a short distance, they climb on land and up a collapsed bridge.

Later, the Hunter is alerted by two crows and proceeds his rampage at Six and Mono for the third time; the children narrowly avoid his blasts behind boxes once again. Both then enter a shed. Six locks the door so the Hunter doesn't break in while Mono sees and removes a shotgun off the wall. As the Hunter is about to break in, Six grabs the fallen shotgun to help Mono aim while Mono grabs the trigger. With the two holding the gun in place, Mono pulls the trigger, shooting the Hunter away from the door. Once they recover from the recoil, Six and Mono both get up and climb outside the window to the coast of the Wilderness, Six and Mono both push a door onto the sea using it as a raft. Six curls herself, feeling uneasy about what just happened while Mono remains unfazed as he waits patiently to cross the ocean, touching the water to pass the time. As the two sit in silence, the duo wash up onto a beach: the beach of the Pale City.

After venturing within the city, Six and Mono encounter a television. As Mono finds himself inside the TV, he runs down the hallway but is unable to reach the door as Six pulls him away from the Tv screen. Exiting via a window, the duo encounter a large, run-down school. Inside the school, they soon realize the place is full of traps designed to kill intruders. As they venture deeper, a group of Bullies, porcelain dolls that resemble children, trap Mono under a locker and kidnap Six, leaving Mono alone to deal with the dangers that lie ahead.

Later, Mono finds Six in the School's restroom, hanging upside down high above the floor, guarded by two Bullies who take delight in their actions. After Mono breaks the bullies heads with a hammer, he then breaks the board connecting to the rope Six is hung from. After Six crashes to the ground, she slowly recovers, seeing her companion by her side once again. Mono offers his hand to help her up, she accepts. The both of them escape the School after avoiding the Teacher's clutches.

As the city starts to rain, Six is shivering under the heavy downpour. The duo cross a ravine to the other side, continuing their journey. Six and Mono discover something in a room: a yellow raincoat. She puts it on, lights start to flicker, she is not cold anymore. The duo proceeds and decides to take refuge in an abandoned Hospital.

As they work together to enter hospital doors, climbing up hanging beds and narrowly avoiding a falling elevator, Mono finds another television, as he once again runs down the hall, Six pulls him away from the screen. Following a moment of silence, they proceed to explore the ruins of the hospital. After Mono retrieves a power fuse, he sees Six playing with a prosthetic arm, breaking its fingers, before noticing his presence and continuing to follow his lead. They proceed to another area. Once again, Six is unable to follow, boosting Mono into a prison cell-like cabin, as Mono traverses through the Patients, she waits for him to retrieve a second power fuse.

After Mono reaches the cell containing the power fuse they need, Six helps Mono exit the cell by collecting the fuse through a chute and plugging it in the fuse to open the gate. The duo grab the power fuses and return to activate the elevator. Once the elevator activates, they get in, not wondering what they will encounter in the deeper grounds as the elevator descends.

The pair arrive at the morgue and encounter two living hands attempting to attack them. Six holds onto a metal door in an attempt to contain the second hand, while Mono fights the first hand with a pipe. Unable to detain the hand behind the metal door, Six leaves the door and proceeds to tear off a wooden plank blocking the only exit to the next room as she entrusts Mono with defeating the hands. After Mono defeats the hands, the two tear off the wooden plank and proceed into a room lined with masks on the wall. The duo encounter the Doctor in the following room, rummaging through the metal shelves of hospital supplies. Mono and Six sneak past the Doctor throughout the hospital until finally alerting him of their presence. As the Doctor pursues them, Mono lures the Doctor inside a crematory machine, after Six helps Mono escape the cremator, she closes its door to trap the Doctor for good. Mono activates the lever to burn the Doctor alive. Six lays down to get a little warmth beside the fire. Moments later, they get in another elevator, and ascend from below.

More united than before, the two glance at the emotionless patients for one last time as they proceed to leave the hospital and return to the Pale City's rainy streets. As they continue through the streets, the two encounter numerous Viewers, many of which are falling to their deaths from the roof of buildings. The two encounter a Viewer as it falls through the ceiling of an apartment, though it quickly rushes to ram its head through a television in the next room. Six kicks the dead Viewer's leg as Mono inspects, then the duo resumes their journey.

They walk past several viewers, all unaware of their presence as they remain entranced by televisions. Mono and Six reach the upper platform to exit and see the Signal tower shining brightly in the dark. Six and Mono proceed to another building. After evading a crumbling building, Six is crushed by some debris. Mono later pulls her out and the two share a moment before continuing their adventure. Together they find another TV, which calls to the boy. Mono reaches the door and releases the Thin Man. Six pulls Mono out, pleading him to flee as the Thin Man nears exiting the TV screen. As the Thin Man crawls out from the screen, the two run. They escape to a room, while Mono hides under the bed, Six is quickly seen and kidnapped by the Thin Man, leaving a Glitching Remain resembling Six, who looks back at the boy before fading away.

After Mono manages to escape the Viewers in a supermarket, he later sees Six in a television, banging the screen desperately to get out. Mono attempts to pull her out, but she is pulled back into the screen by the Thin Man. While Mono is walking in the subway, a Glitching Six guides him.

Six appears again in the Transmission, corrupted and distorted, her attention fixated on a music box as it plays a mesmerizing tune, in a room filled with an abundance of toys. Mono finds her, shocked by her distorted form. Desperate to free her, Mono grabs a mallet and whacks the Music Box, angering monster Six.

Once Six has been turned back to normal, the pair look at each other right before the room around them starts collapsing, the two make a quick get-away through the fleshy crumbly remains of the Black Tower. Six has the lead on Mono, running past him without a second glance. Six manages to run and jump across the crumbling stone walkway, reaching a spot near the exit as the path behind her collapses. Seeing the floor between herself and Mono gone, she quickly turns back and outstretches her arm to help him, catching him as he jumps, but instead of pulling him up to safety, Six pauses for a moment, before ultimately letting him go, dropping him into fleshy abyss, and walks away as the music plays a demented tune. Six walks towards the exit with no emotion towards what she had just done.

In the secret ending scene, Six arrives back in a room through a TV, she looks around and slowly stands before being approached by a glitchy and dark shadow version of herself, a remnant of what she had just gone through after being taken by the Thin Man. Dark Six looks towards a poster of the Maw, before fizzling and fading away into the wind, then Six's stomach begins to rumble with a loud, deep hunger as she stares off into the camera, obscured by shadow.

Little Nightmares (2017 comic series)

Issue 1

Issue 1 starts with Six being chased by one of the Twin Chefs. She crawls through an opened vent then meets a group of children by a bonfire. Before getting captured by a leech, the Refugee Boy grabs Six and takes her to the bonfire to keep her safe from dangerous monsters. The Refugee Boy asks how Six got to the Maw and what she has seen.

As revealed in the issue, Six originally lived in an unnamed city until she was captured and taken to the Maw by the Ferryman. It transitions to the boy who gave Six the bread in the first game asking her what's the last thing she remembered, and if she doesn't tell them, Six will "forget altogether" and her running through a hallway, entering through a room. It then cuts to Six playing a music box. She then gets chased by the Janitor and cuts to her looking at him staring into a static TV. After the transitions, as the Boy in Green asks Six: "What have you seen?", the Bandaged Kid gets eaten by a giant leech. The issue cuts to her encounter with the Guests.

After the transition of Six as she is falling through her memories, the Refugee Boy tells her his backstory.

Issue 2

Six returns in Issue 2, where she brings a music box to make the bonfire warmer. As she and the other children look at the music box burning, the Humpback Girl destroys the music box Six provided. The Humpback Girl later explains why she threw the music box by telling Six and the group her backstory of how she got catoptrophobia.

When Six was done hearing the Humpback Girl's backstory, she looks back and sneaks out of the vent she initially entered.

Little Nightmares Comics

She made her debut in Episode 1, where she is running away from the Hunter. She hides behind a tree and throws a rock to distract the Hunter. While he wasn't looking, Six crawls through a tree hollow tunnel. Coming out of the other side, she notices Mono sitting on a tree branch under the moonlight for a moment before getting caught by the Hunter.

Powers and Abilities

  • Superior Wits: Six is quick to her feet, and possesses a noticeably fair amount of cleverness and wits. She has been shown to be strategic, able to evade & defeat monsters and get around various other obstacles in her environment.
  • Life Absorption: After eating the flesh on the Lady's neck, Six apparently gains the Lady's powers. She later uses this power to kill any Guests that approach her by draining their life essence before finally leaving the Maw.

Monster Form

  • Inhuman Body: In her monstrous distorted form, Six's body possessed several dangerous traits. She was far larger than she was before and had elongated arms with a great amount of strength, able to break through obstacles and damage walls. Six also had sharp ears in this form, able to hear Mono's calls and pinpoint his location to attack him, though this also appeared to cause her a great deal of pain throughout their battle.

Theories

  • It is highly implied that a cycle of successors exists in which various Lady's throughout the years have been defeated and replaced by young girls after they obtain the former Lady's powers for themselves (as seen during the end of Little Nightmares when Six absorbed the Lady's essence, along with her powers). Other child successors are speculated to have dawned a yellow raincoat as it is seen within numerous portraits and pictures throughout the Maw. With Six having obtained the Lady's powers for herself, it is speculated she would have now been set to become the sixth Lady had she stayed within the Maw. However, due to the ending of Little Nightmares, it is currently unknown if Six's fate is to remain within the Maw, or if the cycle ends with her as a result of her decision to leave the Maw entirely, dooming it to die as it requires the Lady's power to keep its engine alive and running.
    • 5Ladies

      A portrait that implies the Lady encountered in Little Nightmares is the fifth Lady to rule over the Maw.

      A portrait depicting the Lady of Little Nightmares, along with four other geishas, leaves speculation that the Lady Six and the Runaway Kid encountered was the fifth lady within the Maw. This would mean that Six's succession would have made her the sixth Lady, a possibility to what her name "Six" derives from.
  • Upon the release of Little Nightmares, the most popular theory surrounding Six and the Lady of the Maw was that the two were related as mother and daughter. When questioned if Six and the Lady were related, Dave Mervik confirms the two are not related and that such relations are common traditions seen in other media that people would now normally expect to see. However, despite not being related, Mervik states, "but the reality is that these two characters have been thrown together by forces beyond their control."[5]

Trivia

  • Initially, Tarsier Studios did not reveal Six's gender, which is why for a long time it was not known exactly whether Six was indeed a girl or a boy or something else. However, since many fans referred to Six as a girl unprompted, the studio began referring to her as such as well, and in the following games hints were left that the heroine was female.
  • Back in 2014, when "Hunger" was the original name of Little Nightmares, the original synopsis revealed Six was nine-years old. The original synopsis of Hunger was later removed from the official site upon the game's name change. [6]
    • The fact that Six is nine-years-old is ironic given the number 9 is 6 when turned upside-down, which is Six's name. The same can be said vice-versa.
    • Six is the only character in the Little Nightmares universe whose exact age is known. However, whether or not this is still official remains unknown as the official site removed any original synopsis revealing Six's age, prior to the game's name change.
  • When Six is eating, a dark version of her is seen nearby, watching Six as she devours her meal. It appears again in a secret ending of Little Nightmares II. This entity is commonly referred to as Dark Six.
  • As seen in the Gamescom 2016 demo, Six initially was shown having the ability to whistle in order to attract the attention of nearby characters.[7]
  • At the moment, in Little Nightmares, players can purchase paid masks in order to change what Six wears over her head. These include a Tengu mask, a Fox mask, a Scarecrow sack, and an upside-down teapot.
    • If a player breaks all the statues, they will be rewarded with a white porcelain mask similar to that of the Lady. There is also a Pakku mask, an exclusive gift for Nintendo Switch players with the Pac-Man amiibo figure.
  • On the official Twitter account in one of the posts, it was mentioned that Six does not like vegetables.[8]
  • Six is currently the only NPC who can die non-canonically.
    • This is first seen at the end of the game Very Little Nightmares, where if the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat does not save Six from falling onto the rocks, the latter will die. In this case, the main character will not receive Six's mutual assistance, and the Pretender will catch up with her and vanish her.
    • Hostile characters do not seem to react to Six in Little Nightmares II, possibly to save players the stress and worry of keeping her alive. However, she is not invincible; for example: if she is too close to Mono when the Hunter successfully hits his mark, they will both be killed.
      • On rare occasions, she can also die by missing or failing to land a jump. When this happens, she will respawn not too far away.
  • The announcement trailer revealed Six obtaining the yellow raincoat in an unknown room similar to the kid's bedroom where the Thin Man kidnaps her. She was also shown wearing it while hiding from the Hunter and confronting the Teacher in the trailer, implying that the timeline of events for when Six obtained the yellow raincoat was changed in the final rendition of the game.
  • Six is the only character thus far who has been directly and at times unintentionally involved in the final fate of the protagonists from previous Little Nightmares games. She attempted to save the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat before she plummeted to her death with the Pretender, ate the Runaway Kid after he was transformed into a nome, and dropped Mono before leaving the black tower. Each situation containing major factors which resulted in its end:
    • The Pretender regained consciousness after being hit by the boulder Six dropped on her.
    • Six discovering the contents of the meat within the sausage and the Maw was made of children and the Guests, but having no knowledge that the Nomes were once children themselves.
      • When questioned about Six's decision to eat the Nome, the Little Nightmares Twitter page states, "But when you know what the sausages aboard the Maw are made of, you can understand the choice."
    • Six falling victim to the Signal Tower, becoming corrupted with escapism just as the Viewers and other residents of the Pale City.
  • When asked about his take on why Six betrayed Mono at the end of Little Nightmares II, narrative designer David Mervik replied that he couldn’t answer, but did state that “Six's perspective of this will be different to Mono's, and different again to the player's”.
  • When asked to explain the events between Mono and Six near the end of Little Nightmares II, the official Twitter account states that "Extracting someone from a fantasy can be deeply upsetting for everyone involved".[9]
  • It is implied by the official Little Nightmares twitter page, as well as the producers that additional factors were at play in Six's end decision to let Mono fall near the end of Little Nightmares II.
  • In the concept arts and game files of Little Nightmares II, Six initially had to wear white clothes and a haircut identical to her design in Very Little Nightmares, however, this design was altered to include a charcoal shirt and a grey cardigan, leaving her white shorts as the only part of her old clothing to be present and visible in all the games. How she obtained new clothes remains unknown.
  • When someone on Twitter commented that escapism is given through the TVs for the Viewers, the music box for Six, and fan art from the fandom, the official Little Nightmares Twitter account simply states, "Indeed. More of you understand the pain that Mono caused Six than you realize". Implying that while saving Six, Mono had hurt her in the process, leaving suspicion that the destruction of her music box freed her from her escapism, but became a major factor in her sudden decision to drop him near the end of Little Nightmares II as her dependence towards her music box left her resentful towards Mono.[10]
  • In Chapter 6 of The Sounds of Nightmares, the Yellow Raincoat is discovered by Noone in a chest filled with other clothing, bringing to question who the original owner of the raincoat truly is.
    • The Counsellor expresses a sense of familiarity to the mention of the raincoat, implying it once belonged to Cici.
    • Six encountered a girl in the Nest wearing the raincoat, then later found it in the Pale City.
      • Upon her journey through the Maw, in the Lady's Quarters, Six finds a portrait of a girl wearing the raincoat.
  • Six experiences her hunger a total of six times throughout the games.
  • In both Little Nightmares and Little Nightmares II, Six will cough profusely when she remains motionless.
