What's going on guys, Dawko back again hope you are fantastic today...

―Dawko's Intro

Lewis K. Dawkins (born: December 30, 1995 (1995-12-30) [age 24]), better known online as Dawko, is an English gaming YouTuber known for his Five Nights at Freddy's gameplay videos, theories, songs, and interviews.


Dawko started out as a Twitch streamer and started growing his YouTube channel after his FNAF videos became popular. After FNAF 3 was released, Dawko fully dedicated his channel to FNAF content. Dawko was the second person to beat 50/20 mode in Ultimate Custom Night (on camera) on July 9, 2018. He has interviewed voice actors from the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise, he had also interviewed the creator of fnaf, Scott Cawthon, in his original web series called The FNAF Show.

Personal Life

Lewis lives in a small house with his girlfriend Billie Smith in the United Kingdom. He has two pugs, he has a black pug named Poncho since January 2015. He has another pug who is white-blonde named Poco. Before Lewis started live-streaming on Twitch, he often made vines every day around 2013.


Nana Pat: Lewis loves his grandmother and always loves to spend time with her, the two often used to have fun together. On February 19, 2018, Nana Pat passed away, leaving Lewis heartbroken. After her death, Lewis started to post photos or videos to remember her.

Billie Smith: Lewis and his girlfriend Billie have been together for years, the two would frequently post photos together on Instagram. Lewis and Billie love each other very much, and they would always give each other support. People would also make fan art of the two of them as a cute couple.[1]

Dawko's friends: Dawko is a very good and fun friend to his fellow YouTubers, Lewis would also sometimes feature them in his videos.

YouTube Career

Before he started focusing on his YouTube channel, he mostly streamed on his Twitch channel, which he frequently streams on to this day. He uploaded some highlights of his streams to his YouTube channel. After FNAF 2 was released, he started to record some easter eggs and secrets in the game as well as making theories. He then started playing FNAF fan games, which is mainly the reason why his subscribers and views had boosted up. On February 27, 2015, he announced that he dropped/quit from law university to focus on YouTube.

After he posted his Let's Play on Five Nights at Frozen, the video gained millions of views, highly boosting up his channel's popularity.

Dawko has some friends who are also Youtubers, and sometimes collaborates or plays games with them. In particular, he collaborates with 8-BitGaming, Razzbowski, FusionZGamer, DAGames, Luigikid Gaming, The Game Theorists, etc.

Charity Streams

In 2015 he hosted a live stream called Five Nights at St Jude's on his Twitch channel to raise money for the charity. The stream was very successful with the help from Scott Cawthon who donated a total of 240 thousand dollars. Because of that, he decided to host a charity live stream or two for St. Jude every year.

Dawko has also hosted several charity live streams for different companies. Some of them are WWF Charity Livestream which has been hosted for several years, and the American Red Cross in 2017.

Since 2015, Dawko would sometimes do charity streams in order to raise money for different companies.

The FNAF Show

The FNAF Show is a web series hosted by Dawko. The series currently has two seasons. The first episode was released on January 20, 2018, followed by eight more to finish up the first season. The second season began on September 8, 2018, and it contained ten episodes.

In this show, Dawko, interviews notable people associated with the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise, mainly voice actors. He has also interviewed other YouTubers related to FNAF, like MatPat from The Game Theorists and his friend Razzbowski, and in Season 2 he began interviewing the creators of fan-games, like Emil Macko (the creator of Five Nights at Candy's), Kane Carter (the creator of POPGOES), Nikson (the creator of The Joy of Creation and Those Nights at Rachel's), and JeliLiam (the creator of Final Nights).

Rarely, Dawko will do something other than interviewing in the show. For example, in Season 1: Episode 2, he baked a cupcake based on one featured in FNAF 2 with DAGames.

So far, every time a season has ended, Dawko has collaborated with a Youtube musician CG5 to make an FNAF song. These are respectively Like It or Not, released at the end of Season 1 (currently Dawko's most-viewed video), and Make Your Move, released at the end of Season 2. CG5 also helped to create the FNAF Show theme song for Season 2.

After beating 50/20 mode, Dawko eventually decided to interview Scott Cawthon.


Dawko used to showcase some of his fan animated videos on his channel. Currently, there are five animations on his channel. They are all animated by YouTube animator Eric Striler. On August 30, 2020, Dawko announced that there will be a Tom and Jerry parody cartoon of his two plushies that are based off him, Nightguard Dawko and Dawktrap, a pilot animation called "Manic in Panic" of the cartoon was released on September 18, 2020.

Music Career

While most of Dawko's videos are Let's Plays, he has made a few music videos on his channels, although not many in comparison to the rest of his content. His first official song on his channel was released on April 10, 2018 with help from CG5. The song, "Like It or Not", was based on FNAF 6 and created for the finale of Season 1 of the FNAF show. The song later became the most viewed video on his channel. His next song is called Make Your Move, an Ultimate Custom Night song released on November 24, 2018, again with some help from CG5. The song is about Dawko beating 50/20 mode, and references the deal he made with Scott to beat the challenge. These music videos also featured SourceFilm Animations, made by YouTube animators Coda and Foxbear Films.

Dawko used to have a small music channel called DawkTunes. The channel was created on June 6, 2016, and the first song he uploaded was a cover of Little House by Amanda Seyfried. The reception was very positive, praising Dawko's voice and guitar skills. He then made another cover of Issues by Julia Michaels. However, since 2017, he decided to upload music videos on his main channel instead. While the original channel currently has no uploads, some of the original cover videos have been re-uploaded by an impersonator using the same channel name.

Before Like It or Not was released, he was featured a few times in other YouTubers' music videos. For example, he was featured in CG5's songs called Labyrinth (an FNAF 6 song) and Projections (a Bendy and The Ink Machine song).

In 2020, Dawko collaborated with Dheusta to make new FNAF songs, the first song was released on May 16, 2020 called "Darkest Desire" based on Dawko's virtual experience with Glitchtrap trying to manipulate him. The second song was released on July 11, 2020, called "Into the Pit" based on the first story of "Fazbear Frights #1". The third song was released on August 8, 2020 (the FNAF Anniversary) based on the second story of "Fazbear Frights #1". The fourth song called "Count the Ways" will be based on the third story of "Fazbear Frights #1", and will be scheduled to release by the end of October 2020.


Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach Trailer

On September 16, 2020, while Lewis was watching a livestream for PlayStation 5, he was shocked that a trailer for the new FNAF game, Security Breach was finally out. At first Lewis did not believe it was FNAF, until he saw the cutout of Monty (one of the new glamrock animatronics). After seeing the cutout, Lewis over-reacted for almost a minute and almost fainted. His reaction can be seen here [2]. After his reaction, memes started to trend about his over reaction.

Toy Bonnie

On August 29 & 30 of 2020, Lewis, when trying to do 10/20 mode in FNAF 2 (while revisiting the game) complained a lot during two live charity streams where Toy Bonnie would always ruin the run, by entering the office with the mask on and taking too long for him to leave. Eventually, Dawko got super frustrated and even did 10/20 mode with Toy Bonnie inactive. Dawko kept losing multiple times on 10/20 mostly to Toy Bonnie. Dawko, extremely frustrated with Toy Bonnie's annoyance, states that he knows people are going to make memes about him despising Toy Bonnie, and saying Buff Helpy got replaced and is gone. However, despite Lewis's numerous losses on 10/20 mode, he refuses to give up and to keep trying until he wins. Although it's unknown if whether or not he will give up at some point. Dawko turned out to be right about people making memes about him despising Toy Bonnie, as numerous memes were seen on Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit.

Buff Helpy

One of the most popular characters on his channel, Buff Helpy's first appearance was in FNAF Meme Review 2.0. Buff Helpy became very viral after Lewis over-reacted for almost a minute. His popularity grew in FNAF fan games and in the FNAF community. His first appearance in a fan game was in FNAF Simulator by Obsidious. Lewis's reaction can be seen here. On FNAF Meme Review 4.0, half of Lewis's twitter was trending with Buff FNAF characters (mostly Buff Helpy). There were even memes about Lewis being traumatized by Buff Helpy.

When Lewis reached 1 Million Subscribers, he promised that he would dance with a Buff Helpy costume on while playing his boss fight music in Freddy In Space 2. This made Buff Helpy more viral for the FNAF community.

According to Dawko, Buff Helpy is known to be a ‘dead meme’. He also stated that the FNAF community is now making memes about him despising Toy Bonnie.


Darko is the evil version of Dawko appearing in more recent videos. When Ultimate Custom Night was in development, Dawko made a challenge with Scott Cawthon where he can get to interview Scott Cawthon if he beats 50/20 mode, while he has to make a fan game called FNAF 7 if he gives up. Dawko mentioned if Scott made the game harder, his sanity will drop. When the sanity finally dropped to 0%, Dawko posted a video called "a message to Scott Cawthon :)". In the video, Dawko had become insane and kidnapped all his friends, 8-BitRyan, Bazamalam, Razzbowski, and DAGames. He threatened Scott to make the game easier, but the friends successfully escaped except Bazamalam. This video marked Darko's first appearance.

Darko made another appearance (as a cameo) in a video named "51/20 Mode?...". He acted as he didn't remember what he did to his friends, and while he read Scott mentioning "51/20 Mode", Darko took over his body for a minute.

Unlike other YouTuber's alter egos, Dawko didn't fully act like he didn't know anything about Darko. He claimed that the video was just a joke and nothing really happened (although Darko's eyes appeared at that time). In the next video, he even directly said that Darko had taken a break for his holiday, since then Darko has not appeared in a video.
