Top Ten Five Nights at Freddy's Characters We Should Feel Sorry For

So, a few characters had a few theories and things happen to them that are just not meant to be. Here are the top ten. This is just my opinion, so don't add items! Just make a remix if you don't agree.

The Top Ten

1 Mangle (FNAF 2 & FNAF 3) Mangle (FNAF 2 & FNAF 3) Mangle is a character from Five Nights at Freddy's. She has a yellow eye and a black eye. She is designed as a broken fox.

Some people think that Mangle bit somebody because she knew that she would never escape her pain of being ripped apart by children everyday unless she did something so awful that the managers would be forced to shut her down. Considering her horrible physical state, I wouldn't be surprised.

I don't understand why Mangle is not #1 on this list. Bonnie lost his face and arm, Foxy was a little bruised up and he probably gets lonley in the cove but I mean Mangle is a head held up by cords and wires with a few other parts scattered around the mess we once knew as Foxy 2.0. She's also the most likely candidate for the bite of 87. It's more logical. Look it up. If anything Mangle deserves the #1 spot on this list. Vote now if you agree!

Poor girl, look at her! She is literally wires and metal with a head. What parents would let kids rip her apart like that? Unless you believe the theory Purple Guy messed her up because she saw the murders.

She gets tortured by children!

2 Bonnie (FNAF 2) Bonnie (FNAF 2)

Reason: Though he creeps me the hell out, I feel sorry for the bunny. He had his face and arm ripped off! He got replaced by his toy version! Haven't you heard of "The Bonnie Song"? Here are some lyrics.
They tore me apart...
They used me for parts...
They took away my face!
They took away my arm!
It just isn't fair...
The chicken and the bear...
Even the fox didn't go though what I had to bare!
My replacement is blue!
It's got the latest tech too!
All I have is my guitar,
Let me play a song for you!
Don't you feel sorry for the bun? - gakupo4eva

Bonnie should be 1! I feel so sorry for him. I think he is adorable and I personally feel very emotional about him.

I feel so sad for this guy he's like every other character pushed away because he isn't foxy also this guy gave me flipping nightmares feel sympathy

Hello my friend
Back so soon, again?
It seems to me that you like our company
You play again
And it's usually me
To be the first disturbing being
That you see

They tore me apart
They used me for parts
They took away my face
They took away my arm

It just isn't fair!
The chicken and the bear
Even the fox didn't go through
What I had to bare

My replacement is blue!
It's got the latest tech too!
All I have is my guitar
Let me play a song for you

Now with red glowing eyes
I'll be your demise
As my endoskeleton decides

My name is Bonnie
I'm the big purple bunny
I play guitar in a band
Don't you forget who I am!

My replacement is blue!
It's got the latest tech too!
It's shiny and brand new

Now with red glowing eyes
I'll be your demise
As my endoskeleton decides

They tore me apart
They used me for parts
They took away my face
They took away my ...more

3 The Crying Child (FNAF 4)

People who isn't he at number one he literally had to go to so much little brother that no one to comfort him and his nightmares except his only friends are plushy's of Freddy and the other on the tru people who isn't he at number one he literally had to go to so much little brother that no one to comfort him and his nightmares except his only friends are plushy's of Freddy and the other animtronics everyone laughed and teased him why isn't he a number one


w ithered bonnie fans... please use your heads to think...

1.) This kid got tortured by his own brother

2.) His head got bitten off

3.) No one even dare to try and comfort him after his nightmares...


Although he is not my favourite, but why are you not vote for him?!?! He gets bullied by his own brother and then DIED in Fredbear's mouth. He died in his birthday party. DIDN'T YOU FEEL SAD IF YOU DIED IN YOUR SPECIAL DAY?!?! His parent didn't much care about him and he is lonely, he doesn't have any FRIENDS, his only friend is his PLUSHIES! Plus he needs to check outside his bedroom, his closet and his bed until 6 AM...he surely have a lack of energy!

I feel that this character has been through the most in terms of emotional, mental, and physical trauma in the Five Night’s at Freddy’s world. This poor, innocent kid who never did anything wrong has neglectful and hating parents who don’t give the smallest care about him, an abusive brother who is sadistic and loves to torment him at any given chance, and no physical guidance or friends to help him cope with his hard times. His only ‘friend’ is his plush based off of Fredbear, and yet Fredbear is not real. The things that Fredbear tells the child are not real, but instead have been formed in the mind of the child… he uses the Fredbear plush as a metaphor for a ‘conscience,’ and also uses it as a coping mechanism. When a child, especially of his age which I think is somewhere from five to eight years, is having significant issues and inventing imaginary coping skills, I believe there is a point for concern.

If a child ever has to die, I think that a child should ...more - ConspiracyCat

4 Foxy (FNAF 1) Foxy (FNAF 1)

Okay I'm done with all the foxy fan girls he's just a bit broken plus he has the biggest fandom since charizard! He went through nothing compared to the other withered ones. How about the one with his face and right arm or that one who lost her hands and is forced to keep her mouth open or the leader who has to be the planner of all the night guard murder spree or the one who isn't a withered animatronic but is practically a bunch of wires with 2 heads?! In fnaf 2 he's the same as fnaf 1, just a bit broken he went through nothing compared to them

FOXY WAS SHUT DOWN! How would you feel having to watch your friends do their job while you sit around having lost your own job?! I know that a lot of the others went through worse but Foxy still went through a lot as well. - R41R3

What the hell? He's just a bit broken and glitchy, that's all. What about the withered ones.. What about the one who lost his face, or the one that has to stay with an open mouth, or the one who is just a head with wires? They had much more pain than this guy. And also he couldn't cause the bite of 87.. He was closed and broken! I could be wrong but it's my opinion.

FOXY WAS SHUT DOWN! How would you feel having to watch your friends do their job while you sit around having lost your own job?! I know the others went through worse but Foxy still went through a lot as well. - R41R3

He is misunderstood he was just doing what he had to do he isn't the bad guy idc if he doesn't go through what the others did he is the best character in my opinion and is lonely and losing his skin showing his endoskeleton and soon he might get stuffed in a suit that's why I feel sorry for this lonely fox

Why did u put foxy in 7 place m80s

5 Springtrap (FNAF 3) Springtrap (FNAF 3) 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 Vincent (Purple Guy) in him. Purple Guy being the murder of the 5 kids in the animatronics. While being an antagonist in Five Nights At Freddy's 3 and being the more.

I feel so bad for Springtrap; think about it! He was created, used a little, locked away for years, and then possessed by PURPLE GUY! I also feel a little bit sorry for purple guy, because he was left alone for so long instead of going to jail like he should've and then had another shot at life. Only if he was sorry, though.

I agree he plays for the owners of the restaurant and what does he get in return? To be put in the back and get purple guy in him who dies and then left alone AGAIN for another few years and thinks he can preform again but NOPE because the place burns down before its even open! Poor guy.

I feel so sorry for him his child died from Fredbear so he got his vengeance by killing his partner's son Sammy followed by 6 other kids including his own son I really feel sorry for him by the way what I said is a theory okay? I knew you guys would understand

Purple guy is not the killer - salvaged123

6 Michael Afton Michael Afton

This guy has got to have one of the most heartbreaking stories in the whole series. Take a moment. Think about it.

He grew up around the animatronics-- he worked for his father fixing them, even. And as time went on, he watched as his younger siblings were snatched away from him by the very creations his father built. It only gets worse from there.

Every step of the way, he does what he can to redeem himself, doing whatever he can to do justice for his dead brother and sister. And what does he learn? His father is not only the creator of death machines, but a child killer himself. Michael's body is sacrificed in the name of every person that William ever killed, and as a result, becomes Purple Guy, and damn near immortal. A living, breathing corpse. And all he wants to do is save the souls of the children that his father stole. He STILL JUST WANTS TO HELP.

But wait! There's more!

Upon freeing said children's souls, they mistaken him for his father, and he ...more

Why isn't anyone feeling sorry for the poor guy? He isn't a bad guy. He just had a horrible dad. He was forced to solve the problems his father made. He got no praise and no break. Then he gets scooped and turned into practically a humane zombie. If I were him, I'd kick William's ass.

I mean...I know people were writing stuff about Purple Guy being a horrible murderer, but now we know that isn't true. - DCfnaf

Michael Afton is one of my favorite characters!

(I've never actually gotten a chance to say my theory about him, and most other fans have a drastically different idea of his story than mine, so this is probably gonna be long)

He's been trying to redeem himself for the entire series (for killing the Crying Child).

He travels to each location in an attempt to free the kids' spirits, starting with Sister Location. (I can prove he is the protagonist of Sister Location. The man walking through the streets at the end of Custom Night is the same as the one who walks toward Crying Child at the end of one of the mini games between the actual gameplay in FNaF4. It has to be him in FNaF4, because, if it isn't Michael then who is it? It can't be the father. If it is, then where is he for the rest of the game? Why can't Crying Child get his father to make his brother stop teasing him?

Plus, the keypad says "Mike" on it. Why else would it say that?) After ...more

7 Circus Baby Circus Baby

What?! Why is nobody voting this? Baby is so sweet and is always being kind and trying her hardest to help and protect the player and she's Number 12?! She was murdered! She is hated! She's nice! It is so sad that PURPLE GUY and the actual killer animatronics came before this. She never killed and us so sweet but yet so abused! You people are heartless!

I don't think Circus Baby deserves number 6. She at least deserves number 4 or 3.

I feel so SORRY! She has been locked away by Puppet? But how? I thought puppet was good, but nooo she took away her life!

Circus Baby is the best! She's is also my favorite. She deserves closer to number one! I think she also deserves to be on Custom Night.😟

9 Chica (FNAF 2) Chica (FNAF 2)

It would be a nightmare for me to lose my arms and have an open mouth all the time. That's because I love typing things on the internet and I have ugly teeth. Plus, if I wanted to swim in the sea I could almost drown.

Why people these days are so stupid? Chica has a seriously injured arms that we CAN'T fix it anymore and a broken jaw but why you not voting for her? Imagine if you have this, you can't EAT, you can't PLAY, you can't WRITE and almost everything! Trust Me if you have this, it will ruin your day almost everything!

WHAT! Chica should be in top 3 with Bonnie! Why Springtrap is above her? He is stupid! He also deserves to be like that since he murdered children! Why Foxy above her as well?!? He doesn't get any SERIOUS accident. He has his all body parts but Chica broke her arm and her mouth! BB is stupid too! HE DOESN'T GET ANY ACCIDENT AND HE IS ANNOYING BUT WHY DO YOU FEEL SORRY FOR HIM?!?! Chica should we fell bad for her. Also, she is underrated making us to feel bad for her more! I hope Chica can be in top 3 one day...

How will you feel bad for this overatted junk, she looks like a guy, she is stupid and it is scary to be her they should have make her look more better, she is only fans by deavntart that make stupid recolors of her and they say it is the best

10 Puppet (FNAF 2)

He went to a birthday party and got locked out and then killed I feel so bad and he is getting revenge on purple guy and helping everyone else get revenge because he is such a good guy who needs to be higher

I feel bad for Puppet because he just went out in the rain to keep a child safe because that was his job, but the child was found dead in the dump and was killed by Purple Guy. as Puppet was being damaged in the rain, Puppet picked up the body of child, and died. That has to be very sad. - TeamRocket747

I feel bad for the Puppet because he is being possessed by the first slaughtered child in front of FredBear's Family Diner and he isn't loved by many people. I know why the music box works on the Puppet. It works on him because while the song plays, as long as the spirit rests...

The puppet is a dude check the voice by David near

It's not that everyone hates him, it's just that everyone IGNORES which way worse than being hated.

Wow, you totally didn't get that from the FNaF Milker. Very original comment. - DCfnaf

He isn't just hated, he's forgotten, poor Toy Freddy, I'd hug him if I could, he's like one big teddy bear

He is cute and a little creepy why is he hated?

He got taken apart in the 3rd game... poor toy... - TeamRocket747

Why are you people feeling sympathy for robots? They don't have feelings and can't be hurt. Flame me all you want :l

His eyes are gone, so he's legally blind, and he was left in the back of the place to rot. Poor Gold Freddy! - QuarterGuysApprentice

Poor little Michael. That poor kid... - DCfnaf

13 Purple Guy (FNAF 3)

Don't feel sorry for this thing. He murders kids over and over and actually ENJOYS it! Child murder is the cruelest, vilest, most disgusting, ruthless, inhumane, heartless demonic sin a human can commit. It's a revolting waste of human life, abuse against innocence, an extreme example of child abuse and irresponsible and unacceptable in every way. And people are FEELING SORRY for purple guy, FALLING IN LOVE with him and SAYING HE'S A GOOD GUY?!?!? People who voted for PG are worse than him.

You are so right he was such a bad person and people say ho hum well duh he's like good and stuff duh.. I AGREE WITH YOU HUNDRED PERCENT WITH THIS - Bubblegumrage456

Purple Guy didn't mean to kill the five kids! His evil side took over the good side, and he couldn't control it! Why does everyone think Purple Guy is just a insane killer? All villains are not evil, their just misunderstood. They were just like us too! Purple Guy is just as good as all of us yes he did kill five children, and yes you have the right to not like what he did, but he couldn't control it! I know he regrets that he killed the children. I just know it...

'His evil side took over' HE WAS ALREADY A BAD GUY. He deserved that death. - TwilightKitsune

He deserved that slow, painful, bone-crunching death. We're talking about a sadistic serial child murderer here! Don't feel bad for this monster. I can't think of doing something WORSE that killing kids. And this guy does it again and again and even ENJOYS it! And people are feeling sorry for him!?

I dunno... but I do actually feel bad for him... I mean, sure he did kill the children, but... Him be haunted and basically chased by the souls? That's what makes me feel bad for him, I know I shouldn't feel bad, because he murdered children for fun, but still... I just do.. and him getting killed by making one mistake... By not realizing that it was raining inside the building... He just wanted to hide from the souls... and he gets killed for that... - -FuntimeFreddy-

14 Mike/Jeremy/Phone Guy (FNAF In General)

Jeremy most likely was the person bit on the bite of 87

Phone Guy. This man gave you instructions when no one else was brave enough to..or at least survive long enough that is.

Mike was the kid in the bite of 1987. He always wears a hat to cover the scars.

15 Guard (FNAF 3)

At least he LIVES almost everybody else dies. by the way he is a guy because of how he breathes during a ventilation error or after a phantom attacks him women don't pant like that.

Reasons:He/she was almost killed. He/she is usually forgotten just like Toy Freddy but people forget this character more than Toy Freddy that's how bad it is for this character!

Because it's the player being tormented

Dude, think it through. The Animitronics are childrens souls of kids who were killed in Freddy Fazbears Pizza Place. They can't return to their home, nor their familys. Who cares about the ADULT Guard.
