The Crow is an animal that appears in Hello Neighbor, Hide and Seek, Secret Neighbor, Hello Neighbor 2, Hello Engineer and the Hello Neighbor TV Show.


The crow is a small black-feathered bird with yellow claws and eyes. In Hello Engineer and the TV Show the appearance of the crow is slightly altered. The crows there appear entirely black.

Concept Art

The first time a crow appeared was in a concept art of Mr. Peterson holding a shovel standing before a grave. Two crows also appear in the concept art of Mr. Peterson standing in his kitchen holding a butcher knife.


Alpha 1

There are several paintings of a crow in Mr. Peterson's House.

Alpha 1.5/Alpha 2

At the beginning of the game, when the Nicky Roth moves into his new house, the crow is seen stealing the key to the house. In order for the crow to drop the key the Nicky needs to throw an item at it.

In the main game, a crow sits in the attic in a cage and croaks loudly if it sees the Nicky. The noise gains the attention of Mr. Peterson.

Alpha 3

A crow can be seen on the greetings sign in the intro cutscene.

Alpha 4 - Beta 3

Multiple crows appear in these builds. They can be seen in the intro cutscene. A few of the crows are sitting in trash under the greetigns sign. One of the crows can be seen on the lost and found box located in front of Mr. Peterson's House.

Full Game

The Full Release also features mutltiple crows. One of them can be seen sitting on a wardrobe in the game's menu. The other can be found in one of the dream sequences on a billboard. Crows can also be seen at the beginning of Act 3 standing on the greetings sign.

Crows appear in every stage of Hide & Seek, if you press the “I am stuck” button in the pause menu a short cutscene will play with a crow picking you up.
