Strings, or Sec-Strings is a robotic experiment created by Fritz in POPGOES. It was made for artificial intelligence (A.I.) and curiosity, according to the Extras Menu. Unlike the others, it is not an animatronic, and it is the main protagonist of POPGOES and it's cancelled sequel POPGOES 2.

Appearance Edit

Strings appears to be a futuristic robot with multiple, slender arms; three on each side of its body to be exact. It also has three abdomens. One below its gray head with a simple glowing eye, and another abdomen with a flash camera and a heartbeat monitor. And the last one just above its one "leg". This one abdomen connects to the next abdomen with cords and a metal endo-spine.

Strings also has a similarity to 3D-Printers in its "feet".

Behaviour Edit

Strings is the character whom the player controls. This is a solidified fact, as Strings holds a pen and sticky notes. Throughout the nights, sticky notes will appear on the monitor, giving out helpful advice to the player.

Another piece of evidence that strengthens this is when Strings "dies", a screen will say "Error" or "Connection Lost". Other proof that Strings is the player character is when the Panic Bar fills to a certain amount, the player will hear a heart monitor. It has also been confirmed that Fritz is watching over Strings in his office throughout the game. This allows him to mess with and test the player's skills via the animatronics. Even more evidence is that Simon gives off hints to robots with A.I similar to it, which in this case, is Strings. In Simon's apparition on the Sixth Night, Simon thanks the player by freeing him and the flame of Strings.

Strings was originally to be an ornament that fought Fritz's nightmares of The Puppet. According to the Fourth Night phone call (Option 3), Fritz contacted a friend online and discovered a religious act of making static ornaments, which repelled nightmares.

Trivia Edit

  • Strings appears in the POPGOES Countdown as a static ornament.
  • Strings' model is very unlike other animatronics, appearing very inhuman - unlike the anthropomorphic animals that the primary antagonists take the form of.
  • However, his physical appearance cannot be seen throughout POPGOES until the player completes Impossible Mode on the Custom Night.
  • It is ambiguous as to what gender Strings is.
    • The Bonnie Glade ending appears with the text His shift begins tonight, referring to Strings.
      • But, Kane Carter confirmed that Strings is genderless, and later, stated that Strings was female, leaving fans to theorize about its gender, possibly based off the Mangle "gender theory", that Scott Cawthon (creator of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise), has done, to mess with the community. Or it can also be a reference to the Puppet itself that also has its contested genre, since String is based on it.
      • This may have been an oversight.
  • It was confirmed by Kane Carter on a reddit post that Strings is the ornament and that Strings' true name is Sec-Strings, which is the high-tech version.
