Top Ten Characters from Five Nights at Freddy's

We've all heard about this popular (and seemingly terrifying) horror game that is soon due for a steam sequel in 2015.
But who is the most bad-ass and awesome animatronic of them all?

The Top Ten

1 Foxy Foxy is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

I think we can all agree that Foxy is everyone's favourite character. The way he slowly creeps out from his hiding place away from your unsuspecting eyes and the way he jumps out and runs at you like a badass when you least expect.

Um, no we can't all agree. I have always hated Foxy for who people ship him with. And besides, there are millions of people in this World. And unless you've met them all, you don't know that so your statement is not true.

People keep saying Foxy is everyone's favorite character. Clearly, you haven't met the other 83% of us who thinks he's okay or completely and utterly overrated. I mean, seriously. "He's a good guy, in the second game he just tries to hug you! " Does that mean the Marionette is trying to hug you too? What about that, huh? Your logic is flawed. Foxy isn't even that different, and the other animatronics did not rip him apart. They are robots possessed by dead children who want to kill you because they think you killed them. HE IS NOT A GOOD GUY. He never did anything special except hide in Pirate Cove and you people put him on the highest pedestal of all. For goodness sake, the Marionette started it all, why do you people like Foxy so much?!

Foxy is my favorite because my favorite animal is a Fox and he is the cool one I ship him with mangle lol

Foxy is a character that gives us the chills. I say that all Five Nights at Freddy's characters are enough to make your childhood frightening. Foxy is personally my favorite, I like his Pirates Cove, I think if he wasn't out of order for some "Difficulties" he would make kids smile. Despite being the fun-loving Fox he is at day, (I have a theory he was until stuff happened) at night he is constantly worrying me. At Night four when I played, I was busy checking on Bonnie, Chica, and Freddy's normal traveling spots. I didn't check on pirates cove, and what I saw made me scream out loud. Two gold eyes and a snout peeked out the curtains. I realized one of the others might be outside, so with a quick flip of the cameras I see them all in the same place. Then looking at Pirates Cove I see he's not there. Then loud footsteps sound and Foxy screeches as he pops up in the office. He's probably one of the most frightening animatronic through out the game. The fact that even after you close the ...more

2 Bonnie Bonnie is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

I like Bonnie cause I think he is the cutest among all of them. I completely disagree with Scott finding Bonnie to be the creepiest. I pictured him with eyebrows and trust me it will make him look creepier. Sure, maybe he is a bit creepy but him being the creepiest is highly debatable. I mean, compare him to Freddy and Chica, and even Golden Freddy. Freddy can enter your office without any warning. According to ihascupquake, she found Chica to be the creepiest because of that weird glare she gives you. As for Golden Freddy, even with both doors closed he can still enter your office and I found his jumpscare to be the creepiest. Foxy for me was the least creepy but he is not my favorite because he is so overrated and already received too much love. Bonnie also suffered the most because he lost his face and his arm and didn't have a phantom version in fnaf3. He was also the one supposed to have the running animation in the game but it was later on given to Foxy. And if I was Bonnie, I ...more

Bonnie is the best I love him he is scary and cute at the same time I think he should be the main one if you ask me

Bonnie is the only one I like. Chica's mentally insane. Have you seen How to make Five Nights at Freddy's Not Scary 1 and 2? I can't even count how many times she said pizza! Freddy's a bit creepy. Have you heard his laugh sped up? That's just as creepy as hell. Foxy's ugly. Golden Freddy is the scariest one. Bonnie is perfect. He loves music and he's aggressive, just like me. He's probably the only normal one there too. Why can't all the other characters just be normal? Don't ever change, Bonnie!

It doesn't really matter about how insane she was in the How To Make It Not Scary video, it's about how scary Chica is in the game.

bonnie is one of my favourite animatronics because he has a really awesome design and he is also really cute

3 Golden Freddy

I think goldie's story is great, and really thought out. In scott's books, they're male while in the series female. This means two spirits possess him which is sad but also kinda cool.

Golden Freddy is really interesting in my opinion. The suit is a male, but it's possessed by Cassie which is a female.

Springtrap's brother, possibly biologically and materially too! And as you know, I LOVE Springtrap!

ITS ME.
Has the best lore.
Great story. I think Golden Freddy is male. The black eyes, are awesome. His mouth just hangs open. His bow tie and top hat are black. Like Freddy.

4 Mangle (New Foxy) Mangle is a character from Five Nights at Freddy's. It has a yellow eye and a black eye. It is designed as a broken fox.

Yikes, Mangle should be in the first or second place! He is the most loved character from all the saga! No, not Foxy. That was BEFORE, but Mangle is the new number one!

I like mangle's colors and I like its idea and story. Like about how it's a take apart put back together attraction. And it just keeps moving on none the less. I could do without that constant radio sound haha.

I love mangle because I feel really sorry for him and I also like how she can climb on the roof and walls. it is also really cool how she is two genders at the time!

She loves to hang around your office. He also might have committed the bite of 1987

5 Freddy Freddy Fazbear (originally known as Freddybear, as seen in the Kickstarter) is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

freddy is my favorite because he is scary and cool with his hat and bow tie I like him out of 10/10

He's the main one! How can someone not like Freddy! His top hat and bow tie look so cute! Fun fact: He was not gonna move in F.N.A.F 1, but Scott wanted him to in the end. Since the game is called Five nights at Freddy's.
Freddy is amazing, trust me.

You know to this day every time I think about Freddy's popularity I wonder if people will ever realize that Freddy has a voice in AR that's better then Funtime Freddy's voice maybe not

Hey look we got the guy that is underrated and makes me feel sad cause foxy, Bonnie just take everything over and Freddy is just alone show some more love to my boy freddy

6 Chica Chica is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

Chica is my favorite character but she does have some mastakes

Chica is by far the best. True she isn't the fastest and she isn't a stalker who just stands at your door for all eternity, but she's still pretty dangerous. She comes to your door when you least expect it because most people after night two are watching out for Bonnie, Foxy, and Freddy(referring to original game) and then you hear the groans of Chica in your office. I do think that maybe the reason that Toy Chica looks like the way she does is all of the comments about how she isn't feminine enough. But I love Chica for the way she is from day one!

She’s cute, she loves to eat pizza (and kids), and she can kill you XD

She's the perfect mix of adorable and scary. She's my favourite animatronic and I love her to death. She may not exactly hide in a cage and randomly sprint to you and murder your face but she's got a good tactic of being there when you least expect it. Like, CHICA is in the kitchen, it's all okay and then she kills you! Plus come on, you stare into your eyes and you feel your stomach twist in knots of fear.

7 Springtrap Springtrap is a character in Five Nights At Freddy's 3, released in March 2, 2015. He's a green and gold bunny with another character named William (Purple Guy) in him. Purple Guy being the murderer of the 5 children murdered in the 80s. After the ghosts of the 5 children became free from their suits, ...read more.

I love EVERYTHING about him the design the Lore the mechanics and just the atmosphere he gives off

The green , the ears , the teeth , it all just WORKS together in a way to make it both terrifying and cute at the same time. Also because ya know. Its purple guy.

You are so right in a lot of ways and I also love bonnie and springtrap

The main killer! Springtrap, he's a great person in F.N.A.F. The way he looks is awesome. It's so cool! I love that you can see the parts of him under the suit.

8 Puppet

The best feature of the puppet (in my opinion) is the mask. That style mask has always seemed cool to me even as a little kid. Just the smile and the tears that are so clearly wrong when you look into it but when your not analyzing everything and your just looking at it it fits in so perfectly and it just works! Also the slim arms and legs and overall design differentiate it from ALL of the other animatronics!

Puppet is a very interesting and mysterious character his mask is eccentric and not very detailed. But that's a good thing. He's wonderful. But the music box was pretty annoying!

Puppet is definitely one of my favorite characters. It's a really interesting character with a marvelous design.

Cool and very interesting! Love puppet a lot even though he was a pain the butt with the music box but now he is all good.

9 New Bonnie

It's scarier than you think in fnaf two he almost got me on night one I was tense.

Adorable cool
And I love because I was watching survive the night by
Bon bun films

There is something about this blue Bunny that just connected with me. Something about him just screams, quite literally some times, adorable. Maybe its just me but that death screen where he just leaps at you, looks like he is going to give a very unsettling, awkward hug. He plays the guitar, kills people, and looks cute while doing so, whats not to love.

BEST character ever from all the fnaf franchise yes he does not have a voice but I love him

10 Funtime Freddy (Sister Location) Funtime Freddy is a animatronic in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location who you see on night 2 when in the Breaker room, Night 3, when you have to repair him in Parts and Services, and Night 5 when you're in the Scooping room and its torso, head and BonBon Puppet is on the ground. Funtime Freddy ...read more.

I love how he has Bon Bon as a hand puppet and he is not as scary as the others.

I think Funtime Freddy is great! I love bon-bon on his hand! It's great! The way his face plates open are awesome.

I think he is just the best! His mini game is the best, and his voice actor!

I just love funtime freddy because of bon-bon, no other reason

HEY BON-BON

The Contenders

11 Circus Baby

I LOVE Circus Baby! She should be second place! I even gave Ennard a vote because someone said Ennard was Circus Baby! Help her be second place please by voting her!

Circus Baby has always been my favorite character. Her design and background story is really cool, though I have to admit the fact that the main reason she's my favorite is because Elizabeth Afton possesses her, that's what makes her so interesting in my opinion.

That's because she is the most sane robot in all of the fnaf series amongst all animatronics I've met

Circus Baby is a really great animatronic in the horror game franchise because her character is so tragic and sad. She never wanted to be the villain, she was just forced to. Her soul is corrupted with a voice that will never silence. All she wanted was to make children happy. Her style of innocence turning into a remorseful betrayal is epic. Plus she only wants to escape the restaurant because she always gets stuffed back to her suit. Circus Baby is the best.

12 New Chica

Markiplier: I didn't even see Chica comin'. And that's not a joke for the internet to enjoy!

Now that it's been confirmed that chica's actually a girly girl

I like toy chica because she's cute then scary but she's not scary for me and I don't know what else

I'm not much of a party person but if toy Chica was there I might enjoy it a little more. She is always the one to scare me. One night (night 1) I decided to keep the mask on the whole time but I ended up taking it off and she jump scared me! I keep on changing my mind (for my favorite character) but I will stay with toy chica this time!

Love toy chica but there are higher people up the ranks like golden freddie

13 Nightmare Nightmare is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 and one of the seven nightmare animatronics (ten if the Halloween Edition animatronics and Plushtrap are counted) in the game. He is the shadowy incarnation of Nightmare Fredbear, and the final antagonist in the game.

My favorite color is black so there IS a bit of bias here but the overall design is also awesome! The teeth , the hat , the arms , the claws , the feet , Its all right! Even the small little human brain that is slightly visible inside his head just tops it all off! Also in game he's so crazy , smart , and mysterious! Totally one of my favorites!

It says it right in the name 'NIGHTMARE'. I mean this guy gave ME nightmares. Very few things in this world give ME nightmares.

Just love Nightmare, even if he is a nightmare for the crying child...

Nightmare really is an interesting character. In my opinion, Nightmare is probably one of the scariest characters in game four. Not only is his character design amazingly detailed and terrifying, but his in-game mechanics are unique.

Nightmare doesn't have any set limits or even a set role, like the other animatronics featured in the games... the original four being interactive robotic mascots.

He is customized, and this targets the boy. His characteristics are determined by the boy's imagination.

One of the scarier parts about Nightmare is the sense of fear and the unknown that he gives us... all the other nightmares were based off of previous animatronics that we (the players) have seen, while Nightmare is just... there. We see no previous evidence of Nightmare existing, and we don't see some type of past counterpart. He just suddenly appears, and the more the scarier in this game. He is... a personal nightmare.

Keep on being you Nightmare. We appreciate ...more

14 Marionette Puppet

I don't know I find puppet adorable because of he voice and how he she looks somehow

Though he may be annoying within the game, you have to admit he's pretty creepy (which makes him amazing). Honestly, he's so mysterious and freaky and adds a great element to the game

You already have the Puppet as number 8. You think nobody would notice?

Guys everyone calling the puppet a boy SHE'S A GIRL!

Well, let's just say this:
Body male, spirit female.
End of story.
Time to roll credits. - TeamRocket747

15 Phone Guy

I just love phone guy always. I have never known why I do so though. It may be because we are both logical people.

Best boy. Those calls helped me through the nights, and not gonna lie, he is one of the most underrated characters.

Everyone always mutes him, but he is very helpful and one of my favorite characters! Even though he's not an animatronic he is still amazing!

We. Need. More. Phone. Guy! Like, come on! Everyone thinks he's annoying and mute him, but you never know when he might help you out. Also, the fact that we pretty much experience his death, really sucks. He was one of the first characters to die and he honestly gets no credit for his work.

16 Michael Afton Michael Afton (also nicknamed as "Eggs Benedict" by the HandUnit) is the main protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. He is the son of William Afton, and brother of the deceased Elizabeth Afton.

(SPOILERS) He is the protagonist and the one who sacrifices himself to free the souls! Very brave and heroic, poor dude. He was really young.

Dude, this guy is Springtrap. Check Springtrap for the evidence.

Michael Afton isn't springtrap. And also William/Purple guy isn't purple, Michael is.

Michael's my favorite charecter. he is so very intresting because he can turn purple and I like his attitude.

17 Ennard Ennard is a mix of the smelted animatronic endoskeletons of Circus Baby, Ballora, Funtime Foxy and Funtime Freddy fused together with their animatronic eyeballs scattered on his body. Ennard takes form of Molten Freddy in FNaF 6 and scoops Michael Afton using the Scooper Machine in Sister Location so ...read more.

The best idea Scott's had for a character design so far. Mot the best in execution (id like to see some qualities of all the characters inside of him), but he's a super intimidating character.

I only like him because someone said he is Baby, sorry real Ennard fans!

Has a cool design very scary loves exotic Butters and that's a blood screeching jump-scare when are you freaking mask of a clown and his backstory is pretty cool too it's not as cool as everyone else's but being someone that got his Parts in body from every other animatronics that's pretty cool

Ennard, he's just great. Really great. I love the lore, I love the way he looks. (Is it a boy? ) Anyway, he's amazing. Funfact: He's in the books! He has a name like the body snatcher or something like that!

18 Mike Schmidt Mike Schmidt is the main protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's. He is a security guard employed by Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, working on a 7-night shift from midnight to 6 AM, until he was eventually fired. The game is played in the first-person perspective, through Mike's eyes.

You, the player. (Yes, his official name is mike) You gotta admit, he is a pretty brave guy, showing up for work all 5 (6? ) Nights in a row, even through he is at extreme risk of death. I mean, come on! This place only pays 120 dollars a week and you have to go through almost getting killed every night.. Mike is a awesome dude.

No wander why radical fans draw pictures of him which tend to be very erotic

This guy is Michael Afton, just changed his surname to his Mother's. And as you should know, Michael Afton is Springtrap.

Hahah he is so hot and sex I think he is the best boy FNAF nightguard, but don't tlell my mommy I said this she Liks Jeremy

He's pretty much risking his life for 120 a week and still gets fired. Brave dude

19 Balloon Boy

he is annoying in the game and all, but I think he's fine in the fanfics lmao

Sure he is annoying with his laughter and all, but hey! Blame it all on foxy! X3

I personally enjoy just what I imagine him doing in the day, just going around giving kids balloons and always laughing and making parents either smile or be crepped out. Plus, he's one of the greatest ways to end your game just by getting in.

Oh? You guys are telling me you hate the guy whose voice you rely on to survive in FNaF 3? Works for me!

20 Withered Foxy

much more cooler then regular foxy I think if he was fixed leave the cracks in his skin it makes him look more pirate-ish

Not a big part in F.N.A.F.
Still, it's Withered Foxy.
Who does not love the withereds?
I really love Withered Foxy. He's not the best withered, but not the worst.

withered foxy is waaaaaay cooler than the other foxy and he also as a cool design and an awesome jump-scare

Withered Foxy equals the best Fnaf character ever. He is my favorite and he looks super cool

21 Withered Bonnie

Easily the scariest character in fnaf 2. The face puns in UCN are cool.

I feel really sorry for him since normal Bonnie is my favorite but I've pretty much gotten used to him not having a face. He's allot more terrifying in this form and I like that. I think the saddest part is Balloon Boy is higher on this list than withered Bonnie!

Bonnie is cool but withered Bonnie is awesome. I love his theme song and he has no face no hand or foot padding and no arm. Even though he is old and broken he is not withered away and can destroy anything in his path.

Withered Bonnie should at least be in the top 5 why is he number 20

22 Ballora (Sister Location) Ballora is one of the seven animatronics (twelve if the Custom Night animatronics are counted) in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. She is the entertainer from her own gallery room, which is located from the west of Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental.

Ballora is just amazing! She's a beautiful animatronic and just seems so much like a "Mother" in some way I don't know why though

UNDERRATED, VERY BADLY UNDERRATED, I love Ballora for some reason, lol maybe its ecause I'm a ballerina or something but I really love ballora

The scariest fnaf animatronic by far she always has her eyes shut she can split her face open and she dances silently

She is the scariest one. Man, Sister Location's cast was so good. Great personalities and Nightmare fuel. Ballora and Freddy were the scariest ones in the game. Whenever her music plays, I get SO TENSE.

23 Nightmare Fredbear Nightmare Fredbear is a character in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 who appears in Night 5, replacing the other 4 enemies you have to face off against in earlier nights, Nightmare Fredbear is the most vicious animatronic imagined by the Child you play as in FNaF 4, because of a freak accident where the child ...read more.

Absolutely terrified me when I was younger, I gotta respect horror characters that actually make me paranoid.

Oh my god. This guy is insanely epic. No one in the fnaf universe (maybe nightmare) is stronger than him.
Who is actually dumb enough to go against him :/

I really like him. Just like him no particular reason, just think he's really really cool.

Nightmare Fredbear is So Scary He Has Teeth On His Stummach He Is The Boss In Night 5 Although Nightmare Is The Boss In Night 8 He Still Will Kill You In A Horrifying Dream His Purple Bow Tie, Purple Hat And Button That May Look Cute But Don't Let It Fool You In Your Head You Should Be Screaming While Nightmare Fredbear Goes Ha Ha Ha

24 Lolbit

Lolbit is a very mysterious character... That makes me more interested about him! He is very special, no one could make a character similar to him before he came out.

I love lolbit's colors! Orange , white , and that purple mixture all fit great! Also its resemblance to funtime foxy which I also love. And the mechanics of lolbit are so unique and different from all of the other animatronics.

because he makes stupid jokes and still laughs at it which sort of represents meh

We don't know much about Lolbit. I think it's a girl. I just really love the colors on her. I do like her a lot.

25 Nightmare Foxy Nightmare Foxy is a character who appears in FNaF 4 on Night 3. Nightmare Foxy runs down the hall and sneaks in through your slightly opened door and hides in the closet, at least until you close the closet door for long enough.

Nightmare Foxy REALLY hits it home in the sense of making good old regular foxy so terrifying! Also the fact that he's in the closet and that jumpscare he does IN the closet and the fact that he moves his mouth like he's actually making the noise without moving one spot! Also how he turns into a little plushie! The plushie is so cute by the way. (I know the plush is lore-based)

He is not scary just like the original foxy

He's scares me for a week when I seen his picture Or me.

He's cool but not best foxy
