"It's my job to make folks like you never see something like you saw the other night."

— Aunt Molly

Aunt Molly, or "Aunt Mall-Cop" as disparagingly called by Mae, is a minor character in Night in the Woods. She is first encountered outside the closed off park on Mae's first night home.


Aunt Molly has dark blue fur and red eyes along with a yellow nose and yellow whiskers. She has a dark blue cap on with a badge in the middle. She also is wearing a light gray shirt along with a black tie with gray gens and black shoes. She is only seen in her police uniform.


Aunt Molly is Mae's aunt (on her mother's side[1]) and she currently works as a policewoman with the Possum Springs Police Department. Mae doesn't seem to get along with her very well, but although stern at times, Aunt Molly does seem to have her best interests at heart.

While Aunt Molly possesses a service gun, she has only needed to use it once albeit without any fatalities.


  • In the original version of the game, Aunt Molly did not appear during the epilogue. This led to speculation that she was part of the cult. However, as of the Weird Autumn edition update, she appears near Mae's house during the epilogue, confirming that she is not part of the cult. She mentions that she's been receiving calls all morning regarding something, not stating what but implied to be about people going missing as a result of the cultists dying in the cave in.
