Candyman was the titular antagonist of the horror movie of the same name, although a brutal killer and demonic spirit he has an especially tragic past compared to most horror icons which arguably made him more sympathetic - though he was nevertheless just as dangerous and deadly as any other slasher movie antagonist.

Biography Edit

Candyman found a solution to his nightmares within the Dream World.

A demon who can set him free from his haunting past.

Freddy offered him to put an end to his curse.

But Candyman must do a little something for him first.


The promise of freedom made Candyman even stronger.

Immortal between two worlds, the Cenobites had no power over him.

But Freddy betrayed Candyman, he used him to defeat Pinhead.

He broke a dream mirror and used his power to trap them both forever.

That was a mistake, Candyman wasn't stupid, he never trusted Freddy.

He anchored his soul in Freddy's reality when they made their pact.

Candyman came back surprising Freddy and easily defeated him.

But Freddy managed to escape to some dark corner of the Dream World.

He released Pinhead from the mirror and decided not to fight them,

it wasn't his battle and they couldn't help him anyway.

Connections to Other CharactersEdit

  • Pinhead - Both characters inspired by the works of Clive Barker.
  • Freddy Krueger - Both characters need to survive or at least are powered/influenced by a need to be remembered. Freddy needs to be feared so that he can be in people's dreams and Candyman has a need to sustain his legacy by killing anyone who doubts him in order to become an Urban Legend.
  • Ghostface - In the first Scream film, Randy jokes about Candyman's daughter when discussing female serial killers with Dewey.


  • Candyman was introduced in version 2.7.
  • Candyman was considered the most powerful character in the game.
  • Candyman's Unleash "Bee Swarm" is a reference to Blackheart's (from Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter) Hyper "Judgment Day".
