This is the article for the protagonist of Very Little Nightmares.
You could be looking for the semi-protagonist of the Little Nightmares series, Six.

The Girl in the Yellow Raincoat (not to be confused with Six) is the main protagonist of Very Little Nightmares. Her ambiguous reference on the game's official website and similarity in appearance was deliberately used by the creators to trick players into thinking she and Six were the same character. It is only during the climax that the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat was revealed to be a different character.

Twitter Description

As she wandered, it sometimes seemed to the girl as if there was no one in all that huge rambling house but her own small self. Oh, if only that were true.


Like other children, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat is very short and barefoot. Judging by her hands and legs, she has a somewhat swarthy/tanned skin tone. As revealed at the end of the game, she has long brown hair braided and tied with a red hair band. Her blunt bangs completely covers her eyes. It is unknown rather if she's wearing anything under the yellow raincoat or not.


Like the other characters in Little Nightmares, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat does not speak, but her personality is shown through her actions. Like other children, she also has a desire to escape from the Nest, but this does not stop her from helping other captives, which she shows when she releases a kid with a red scarf from a cage and saves Six from falling to her death. Very often, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat joins other children and Nomes to continue her journey.

Like Six, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat is very smart and dexterous. Often she demonstrates her skills, like solving puzzles and the ability to find weaknesses of enemies. She uses her small stature to climb through crevices and ventilation, or to hide from enemies. It was also shown that the heroine knows how to keep her balance when she walks along beams and on thin boards.


Despite the fact that the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat can run as fast as Six, she cannot jump high and far. However, the heroine has climbing skills, so that she can quite easily climb and descend along a brick wall, along bars or over a steep rock. In some places of the Nest, the girl demonstrates that she knows how to keep her balance, which is evident when she several times walks along bridges made of narrow boards. Also, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat does not have a constant source of light throughout the game. The only exception is when the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat finds matches and with their help lights a lanterns in a warehouse to illuminate the path she needs.

Very Little Nightmares

At the beginning of the game, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat has a dream about how she runs away from someone, but manages to go into the barn and close there. Waking up, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat noticed that her balloon, on which she was flying, crashed and broke the roof of a mansion called "the Nest". Entering the cell hall, the character notices another girl in white clothes.

Later, she opens a cage with a child in a red scarf and first meets the Craftsman. Together, the children open the door leading to the next room.

After visiting the corridor with Eyes, the character again meets the Craftsman, who begins to chase after her throughout the workshop. After going through the ventilation, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat hid one of the boxes, which the craftsman places in the elevator and sends to the warehouse. There the character ends up in a landfill.

Escaping from the Dump Monster, who lived in a landfill, the heroine again meets the girl in white clothes, who escapes through the ventilation hatch. On the way, the protagonist comes across a new enemy named "the Butler", who possesses telekinesis. Escaping from him, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat jumps into the hatch in the heating room. There she ends up in the chamber with the Pretender.

At the exit from the Nest, the Butler begins the pursuit of the heroine. In the garden, she meets the girl in white clothes, with whom she manages to cross the abyss, but the protagonist is ahead of her and locks herself in the barn, thinking that the Butler is still chasing her. She manages to get to the edge of the cliffs, where she is noticed by the Pretender, who is aggressive against her. The Girl in the Yellow Raincoat begins to descend the slope, where the mistress of the Nest followed her. Despite the danger, the character notices the girl in white clothes and saves her from falling onto the rocks. In gratitude, the girl in white drops a boulder on the Pretender. Unfortunately, this had little to no effect on her. The Pretender pounces on the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat, but in the end they both break off the rocks and fall into the sea. A few moments later, the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat's raincoat floats to the surface.


  • Since she is the only other person to have worn the yellow raincoat before Six, many speculate the Girl in the Yellow Raincoat could potentially be the daughter of the Lady seen in the various portraits around the Maw. Not much is known about where she came from but it is believed she traveled on a blimp to get away from wherever she once lived.
