Reaper Mangle is one of the reaper antagonists in Final Nights 3: Nightmares Awaken. It is the reaper incarnation of Mangle from Five Nights at Freddy's 2. It, along with Shadow Bonnie, are the only animatronics in the game to attack through the vents.
Reaper Mangle returns in the fourth and final game in the series, Final Nights 4: Fates Entwined.
Similar to her debut appearance in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Reaper Mangle is disfigured and mutilated, although noticeably more withered. Her face is slimmer and much more angular. Her two white ears have lost their pink highlights, and their tips have lost their suit, leaving their frame visible. Reaper Mangle has two red blush cheeks, which are smaller in size compared to the original and red lipstick dotted on her snout. Her snout is visibly more purple compared to her original self's hot pink coloration. Reaper Mangle also seems to be missing her eyes. Her eye sockets are smaller in comparison to the original, and have lost their pink border. Each eye socket seems to have a single fracture on the top lids that extend upward. She still has her left hand and right foot from her original form. Otherwise, Reaper Mangle's endoskeleton and wiring are completely exposed. She is also missing her red bow tie from the original. Her second endoskeleton head has not strayed to far from its original design in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. However, instead of having one eye, it has two, which are black in color. its teeth are slightly duller.
In Final Nights 4, it's head appears to be worn out and melting, with goo sticking out in certain parts of the muzzle, and it's right ear is missing.
Reaper Mangle first appears in Night 3. Shortly after the night begins, the thermostat near the door will glow red, indicating that it has been shut off. After it has been shut off, she will begin to advance towards the player through the vents. To prevent her from getting into the room and killing the player, they must turn the thermostat on to scare it away. Similar to how the original Mangle behaves in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, loud static and metallic clangs can be heard blaring from the vents when she is closest. Ignoring this warning will allow Mangle to break free from the vents and descend to attack the player. Once it has entered the room, the static will stop, and she will go through two stages before finally attacking the player. Reaper Mangle will first poke its head out from the open vent. It will then gradually drop down feet first. After the last stage, Reaper Mangle has completely left the vent and will hide in the left side of the room, shortly before killing the player. If the player attempts to sleep while she is hiding in the room, she can kill the player from the bed.
Reaper Mangle appears in Investigation 4. It, along with Reaper Spring Bonnie, Reaper Puppet, Reaper Golden Freddy and Reaper BB tries to attack Max Donovan in the Hospital Bedroom. Reaper Mangle hangs from the ceiling. if it starts making noise, the player must look up at it and shine their flashlight to repel it. Failure to do so will result in a jumpscare. The noise is also associated with the blurring of the screen. If you see it, quickly shine your light on it.
- In it's teaser, it is shown to dangle down from the ceiling, this happens in the main game as well.
- Reaper Mangle is one of the reapers to have the least animations for, this is shown in the extras as its looping animation is from its jumpscare.
- The static noises it makes when in the vents is very similar to the static noises Phantom Mangle makes in Fnaf3.
