TimeSplitters Future Perfect
The Gingerbread Man first appeared in the original TimeSplitters and has reappeared in every subsequent game since. Gingerbread Man has never been given a canon role and is considered a "Classic" character in all sequels. He is simply an orange-brown gingerbread man, with gumdrops constituting his eyes and three buttons. His smile is simply red icing, and, being a gingerbread man, he appears flat on his side.

The first game was Gingerbread Man's debut, and his role was only based around the Mall map. Like the other non-canon characters in the first game, he has a cheat associated with him: Enemies turn to Gingerbread.

Though the Mall did not return for another game, the Gingerbread Man returned in TimeSplitters 2 for another appearance. He is associated with the Chinese restaurant and appeared as the enemy in Baking for the Taking with the Chinese Chefasthemain character. The mission briefing suggests that his sentience was the result of an excessive amount of raising agent.
- The line he says with his gesture in TimeSplitters Future Perfect is a parody of Bender's line "Bite my shiny metal ass," from Futurama.
- He is possibly an allusion to a character in Jasper Fforde's book The Fourth Bear with the same name, who is a notorious baked serial killer with a talent for ripping people's arms off.
- Due to his flexible nature, it may be assumed that he is half baked.
- He has no fingers, so he shouldn't be able to hold a gun, let alone fire it.
