The Guillotine is a structure in Granny. It was added in Update 1.3 and it is located in the Backyard.


The Guillotine looks similar to its namesake machine, with a sharp rusted metal blade, likely the result of oxidation after being stained with melon juice and the blood of Granny's previous victims...

There is a Bell Alarm attached to its legs, providing an easy way to call Granny out to the Backyard, but also acting as a hazard if the Player triggers it by mistake.

If the Player earns a Game Over, one of the three possible endings they can receive has Granny slice their head off using the Guillotine.


The Guillotine is used to chop the Melon. Upon doing so, the Melon will be cut in half, and an item will drop on the floor.

To see what items can be found in the Melon, see Tool Positions.

  • The sound of the Guillotine slicing through the Player's flesh in the Game Over sequence. (WARNING: LOUD)
  • The sound of the Guillotine slicing through the Melon


  • Granny uses the Guillotine to chop the Player's head off in one of the three Game Over endings.
  • It is possible to get Granny inside te Guillotine if the Player knocks out Granny while she is in the Backyard. However, it is impossible to actually damage her in any way using the device.
  • If the Player tries to put a hand into the Guillotine and they don't have the Melon with them, the message "This is a dangerous cutting tool" will appear.
    • This gives a hint to the player, as it implies that the Melon should be used here.
  • Inside the Shed, a cross-section blueprint of Guillotine can be found.
