Fakerism is not an ideology, but rather a phenomenon within the Friday Night Funkin' Community, among many other ones. It does not have any theory, but the general practice of it is:
- There exists a copy of a character (or in PCB's case, a copy of a Self-Insert/Ideology) that is similar to the original, but often with minor differences that are supposed to give off a "something's not right" kind of feeling;
- The copy is often shrouded in mystery;
- The copy is often violent and extremely dangerous;
- The copy may or may not be able to transform and it's "copied look" form may work as a form of bait
- Usually silent
- May have a second form
As mentioned before, the design of the "Faker" character is supposed to be imperfect. Usually the colors are all wrong, muted or have a very wrong shade of the original color. Some symbols/features might be missing, may be exaggerated or are present and often made similar, but very badly.
