Now he’s gone and you’ve forgotten him. Moved on. It’s for the best honestly. It was getting embarrassing. You’re too old for imaginary friends… And a dead pet at that… How morbid, how childish.
The Guest


The Guest is an antagonist in Hello Neighbor 2.


The Guest is an antagonist of Hello Neighbor 2. He lurks at both the Golden Apple Amusement Park and Theodore's House. According to the game designer (Nikita Kolesnikov), the Guest loves to keep his golden apple and won't let anyone take it from him.

It is unknown what the goals of the Guest are.

There are carvings of the Guest around Raven Brooks in Hello Neighbor: Reset Day.


The Guest wears a dark, striped purple sweater with a tiny red pocket on the front, which has a tissue. The sweater's hood is pulled completely over his head, which is obscured by a large wooden yellow beak as a mask. He has a patched-up bag on his back, held on by a string. He has brown lined pants, with black shoes and yellow laces. His gloves also noticeably have dirt on them. His suit was found in the garbage.

In Hello Neighbor: Reset Day, the Guest is described to emit a smoky smell to the people around him. He has a hooked beak and strands of feathers on his limbs. Under the beak is a mustache, and the Guest has giant limbs. He has talons on his hands.

He can morph into different people based on who he's communicating with.


Hello Neighbor: The Raven Brooks Disaster

The Guest's first chronological appearance is in the 2nd graphic novel. He takes what he wants from people. He creates an imaginary dog for the protagonist, and reveals to her it's fake.

Hello Neighbor: Reset Day

In Hello Neighbor: Reset Day, the Guest has kidnapped Enzo Esposito. Enzo's sister, Maritza, is looking after Enzo's two kids. At the end of the book, the Guest kidnaps Piper Tillman’s Mother.

The Guest is well known in the town, as there are carvings of him.

It is unknown why the Guest kidnaps people, but he most likely causes the time loops happening in Raven Brooks.

At the end of the story, the Guest messages Piper telling her she has nowhere to run, and sends her an image of the one and only Theodore Peterson, ready to find her.

Hello Neighbor 2 Alphas

Hello Guest Prototype

Bad Ending: The Guest blows up Mayak.

In this build, it is hinted at that the Guest killed 3 people who entered Mayak (by the ride).

Hello Guest Alpha 1

The Guest fights the Man in the Hat but then captures Quentin/Beatrix

Hello Neighbor 2 Alpha 1

The Guest is shown locking what Quentin presumes is Mr. Peterson in the attic of his own house, the Guest clearly being protective of it with a red lock, like Mr. Peterson with his basement in the first game.

Hello Neighbor 2 Alpha 1.5

The Guest is first shown burning children's toys, perhaps attempting to burn the evidence that he's kidnapped them. Once the Guest hears a doorbell ring from outside, he notices 3 children dressed up for trick or treating, The Guest crawls to the top of the house and quickly kidnaps them and locks all three of them into the attic. While kidnapping them, the screen is blocked by a missing poster, and it shows the scene again, where the Guest climbs into the attic, removes the ladder, and leaves the kids in there.

Artificial Intelligence

Hello Neighbor 2 Pre-Alpha (Hello Guest)

The Guest is sneaky in this build. His goal is to catch the player from behind. He lurks the park waiting to attack. To defend yourself, look at him. Sometimes his animation changes. Usually he crouches, but sometimes he peeks from around corners when the player is looking at him. The Guest follows the paths of the player, jumping onto what they jump on, running to where they run.

Hello Neighbor 2 Alpha 1

The Guest's AI majorly changed in this build. Now he guards Theodore's house. His movement animations were changed and it now seems like the guest limps on his right leg. The Guest now catches and drags you to a certain point and then throws you, causing you to lose all your items. The Guest gets angry when you steal the key from the furnace, and he mainly guards the key, throwing trash into the furnace to keep it on. Occasionally, the Guest goes to make tea or sleep. While sleeping, the Guest's right leg twitches. In the open world, the Guest stalks the player but when he gets to the player he steals an item from them. The Guest uses a fire extinguisher to get to high places.

Hello Neighbor 2 Alpha 1.5

The Guest's behavior in this is similar to alpha 1, but he now has different states. He hears thrown items and goes to check them. He sometimes isn't sure whether the player is in his presence or gone. To avoid him, crouch and stand still. He will make a sad noise and walk away.


  1. Somewhat fast
  2. Can open up doors and jump high
  3. Can use the fire extinguisher to fly
  4. Can pick objects up and throw them at Quentin
  5. Can set up traps that fire tiny trash bags at Quentin (Removed in Alpha 1.5)
  6. Incredible strength, demonstrated by throwing Quentin very far easily
  7. He can make lights flicker
  8. He can enter the mind of anyone and take the form of their fears.


  • Throw objects under his feet, this will make him stumble and fall.
  • Tie a rope in the doorway, which he will also stumble and fall.
  • Hiding behind the curtains and in a closet.
  • Distract by heating the kettle and turning on the alarm clock.
  • Throwing big objects. This only works in Alpha 1.5


Like the Neighbor, the Guest has had various running speeds.

In the Hello Guest Prototype and Hello Guest Alpha, it is difficult to tell how fast the guest is, since he is never running when you are looking at him. He is about as fast as Quentin.

In Hello Neighbor 2 Alpha 1 and Alpha 1.5, the Guest moves slower, making it so Quentin can escape easily.
