Saints Row Goes Fifth is a new installment in the wacky Saints Row series by Volition and follows on from the Enter the Dominatrix DLC for Saints Row IV. It takes a more kid friendly fantasy turn, in which the Saints end up in a colourful world populated with ponies, unicorns, fairies, giant bunnies, gingerbread men and evil teddy bears.
Volition had began to plan a new game marketed for children, called "The Land of Marshmallows" however due to budget cuts they decided to scrap the game, and merge it instead with their new Saints Row game.
- The Protagonist
- Johnny Gat
- Benjamin King
- Mr. Snuggles - the main antagonist
