In appearance, the Sugarplum Fairy resembles a preteen ballerina with the mouth of a lamprey. Several tiny rows of sharp teeth take up the majority of her face, and as such she lacks eyes or a nose. She attacks and devours people using her lamprey mouth.


She is talented at ballet, and she likes to twirling around, she is also quiet, seductive and somewhat intelligent, but she was shown to be sadistic and cold, when she savoring victims.


The Sugarplum Fairy is almost conjured when Holden opens and plays a music box with a twirling ballerina in it. As revealed in a Q&A by Drew Goddard, if the song had been allowed to finish, the Sugarplum Fairy would have been summoned to the cabin.

Marty sees this monster in the elevator. During the Purge, she is seen in a camera view angle, dancing.

The Sugarplum Fairy is also seen dancing while on tour at Halloween Horror Nights 23 at Universal Studios Florida in 2013.


It's possible that she was designed as a tribute to Black Swan or Pan's Labyrinth, although a more likely inspiration is the Sugarplum Fairy in The Nutcracker.

Likely also based on lampreys and the common internet photoshop of a lamprey's mouth onto other objects.

Also, she might have been based on the tooth fairy creatures featured in Hellboy II: The Golden Army and the "Tooth Fairy Matilda" from Darkness Falls

She is a reference to the Vagina dentata myth which was popularized in the horror-comedy movie Teeth
