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. It has a yellow eye and a black eye. it is designed as a broken fox.

The fact she got ripped apart piece by piece is just unsettling. Why would some group of kids ever do that to this poor creature, and the fact she just had to watch herself being ripped apart without being able to do anything is just depressing.

My favorite female character! (Well I consider her female) I ship Foxy and Mangle! Poor Mangle always has to deal with kids ripping her apart. I wouldn't tolerate that...

Poor spider fox

My favorite fnaf character, I feel so bad for HER because SHE goes through the most insufferable pain every day, and all anyone thinks about is HER gender.

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

I felt so bad for Bonnie. He got his arm and face ripped off. He was my favorite character in Fnaf 1 and then this happened to him. - LilRose

Withered bonnie is for some reason my favourite bonnie because of how scary he looks and how he is still ALWAYS active

I think Bonnie should be number one because the crew could have just been remodeled but instead they got tortured. Bonnie however is the only one that has not even half an arm. No face, no arm. That's why I think Bonnie should be number one.

Come on scott his face is torn off and his arm I feel sorry for him

3 The Crying Child (FNAF 4)

The only one that makes sense springtrap deserved his pain and the others don't care they're robots

The trauma he went through... - LilRose

He is dang sad if you don't feel sorry for him then get the phuck out!

Poor little kid when fredbear bit his head he hallucenated monsters in his hospital room us fnafers found that out bu looking at the random things beside/on your bedside that would appear in a hospital of if your to lazy kazy to play the game youtube is always an option - Mefty

4 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 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, more.

Well he is my favorite character in fnaf and I feel bad for him cause he was living when he was in the suit

HOLD UP! As much of a Dan I am of this character and stuff. But how does a cold blooded killer (bound to be my favourite part if his story) on number 4 on who you should feel sorry for? YES, he is possed by purple guy who list his daughter. But it was William's fault for making a killing clown robot for his child. And YES William may have lost his wife to ballora (this is just my idea) but still how can you feel sorry unless your a fragile like me!?._. He deserves to be on this list but bot this high though...

Yeah his spooky and so cool

I know the true story of William affton he wishes he had someone to love but everyone thought he was disgusting because of his rotting skin people thought he was gross one day he got a job at Fred bears family diner and he was spring Bonnie and there was a spring lock incident and the employees soul was attached to the Fred bear suit and when William was wearing the spring Bonnie suit everyone loved him and he didn’t want that love to ever be taken away so he started murdering children and his plan backfired and then he destroyed the animatronics than the spirits of the dead children came after him and he hid in the spring Bonnie suit thinking he knew everything about spring lock suits but the spring locks came lose so the poor man wanted love all this time.

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

He has no tail poor foxy - Mefty

I feel bad for this poor fox.

I feel bad for this poor fox he was shut down trap inside his cove he has nothing to do but sit around while the others do their job I could image being trap in a cove for many years must of ben a boring life but the haters don't know it because their so stupid oh why look the haters raging on this page why you haters run away and go b! ch some where els - MorlaTurtle8

He watches all of his friends singing well he’s out of order and a corner

6 Michael Afton 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.

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

How is Michael only number 6!? He has the most depressing backstory of everyone.

He couldn't help being the son of a killer. You can't choose your parents. It's even possible he wasn't William's biological child. Mike's looked down on by everyone simply because he's related to the psycho. All he tries to do is make up for his dad's mistakes and try to help the children. He's killed trying to help his sister and forced to be used as basically a costume for a pile of broken souls. Then he was revived back from the dead as a living corpse. How is that not depressing!? Not to mention his neighbors probably have nightmares of him now. He goes on living as a corpse for 30 more years and he's still trying to save the children's spirits so they can go to a better place. That's selflessness if I've ever heard it! In the end, he's burned alive AND WANTED TO because he didn't want to live that way anymore. That's so sad! How heartless do you have to be to not feel pity for him?

I fell sorry for mike I would be so traumatized if I figured out one of my parents killed kids and stuffed their dead bodies in suits to hide their bodies

This is my Brother-Violet - Wolfstar

7 Circus Baby Circus Baby

I love baby sooo much and I thought mangle was the only one who is I should be sad for but when I saw your post on baby I was about to cry

Baby doesn't deserve such a bad life! She used to be a cute adorable girl! She didn't even get that chance to grow up :(

Aftons own animatronics killed his daughter R.I.P elizibeth - Mefty

I feel bad for her because she only killed a child by accident

8 Balloon Boy (FNAF 2) Balloon Boy (FNAF 2)


Who the hell likes balloon boy I will admit I like foxy and hooker chica

Actually I admit myself I like ballon boy and foxy as well

I do like foxy and I do not hate BB he's actually my 2nd favorite and we foxy fans are not hating this poor guy I swear guys we not hating I'm pretty sure it's those golden freddy s that hating on BB so I like foxy big deal there's nothing with liking foxy and don't throw you hissy fits that I like foxy

Well... it's because the other Foxy Fans rage at him.
But don't worry, you're out now. - HistorianaPhilippiniana

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

China is annoying

How could they do that to her!
Talk about sexism

U know how withered chica can steal a paper pal? Well one day me and my friend phoebe were watching smike and he said one of his theroys of how yellow bird grabbed the paper pal was with her buttcheeks lol I mean she has no hands afterall by the way I WILL KILL ANYONE WHO CALLS CHICA A F*-$ING DUCK - Mefty

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.

10 Puppet (FNAF 2)

Why wouldn't you feel bad for someone who was murdered by her own husband and was trying to get revenge on him throughout the whole series? - LilRose

Puppet was killed first and gave life to all the others phone guy even hates her she still gave life to them talk about GIRL POWER!

help him

Puppet is misunderstood some theories think that puppet has/is the soul of one of the first murdered children. Puppet it one of the unknown anamatronics, you might be saying: everyone knows who puppet is! Puppet isn't unknown! : and your right but puppet's backstory is mostly unknown. Puppet also risked her/his life for a child! My question is: WHY IS SPRING TRAP VOTED HIGHER THAN PUPPET? (Sorry for the caps lock ) I feel bad for everyone on the list (except purple guy) and I think anamatronic only attack night guards and children because of purple guy either one programming them to or two used to be the night guard and now they think night guards are evil (probably not the second one ) also puppet sat in a box alone! And then was trapped and stuck in Lefty (poor lefty) and burt in a fire! WHAT DID PUPPET DO TO HAVE TO BE BURT IN A FIRE? I feel sorry for puppet and hope somehow puppet comes back in another fnaf game.


The Newcomers

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

The Contenders

11 Toy Freddy (FNAF 2) Toy Freddy (FNAF 2) Toy Freddy is a new animatronic and one of the antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, also being a titular antagonist.

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's so sweet! I just hate how no one pays him attention! He's so much cuter in FNAF 2 than FNAF world!

12 Golden Freddy (FNAF 1) Golden Freddy (FNAF 1)

Golden freddy has done so much in Fnaf and is the main point of the lore in it so I feel so sorry for her

Floating head - Mefty

I hate this guy

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

13 Purple Guy (FNAF 3)

What is wrong with you, feeling sorry for Purple Guy? - SackofCheese

I have to admit I feel bad for the Purple Guy a bit. I mean, the only reason he killed kids was because he wanted a family.
Backstory - He used to be a man, who loved children and wanted to have children of his own. But kids hated him, and saw him as an icky man. So, he went to Fazbear's Pizzeria and got hired. He wore a suit of a robot bunny, and made friends with the guy who worked in Fazbear's suit. Except one day his friend died inside of the suit, and Purple guy became lonely. So he had the idea of killing kids and stuffing them in suits and staying at Fazbear's forever, and he could have a family.. But after he did, he regretted that he did that. So no, he is not a bad guy. He's just misunderstood. Stop abusing him after all he did, how'd you feel if someone abused you for murdering five kids, and not meaning to? I believe that if Pg would of lived a longer life, he'd stop abusing children, but if he was real, he might be reading this and abuse YOU for talking bad about him ...more

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

Why should we feel bad for him he's a child murderer he's deserve to be killed by foxy

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

All of em - Mefty

phone guy

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.

15 Guard (FNAF 3)

Oh he libes huh wa bout springboiz - Mefty

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

16 Baby (Sister Location)

Listen to her I mean she even more brilliant than phone guy


17 Ennard 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 more.

I'll be friends with you Ennard. Let's party all day! - Bswaggers

I made this one you know

Dude he has like 15 endo's and no skin guys help him he deserves #1

oh my god!

18 Nightmare 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.


People take off nightmare as a just death for the crying child.But if you take the fact if the not cannon was cannon butt also nightmnmare. Is not cannon. So i. Can take the fact that all the Nightmare Animatronics had the disk on them witch means they are real. SO nightmare has to be real and not a representation of death he has to be more then all the theorist clam

If youz looks close u canz seez heez brainz - Mefty

Nightmare is underrated VOTE TO SHOW NIGHTMARE SOME LOVE!

19 Freddy (FNAF) Freddy (FNAF) 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.

He had to watch his friends get murdered and then he gets murdered to and has to be stuck in a suit for ever just think he's was only a kid...

Hey dude right there you are RIGHT! Freddy Fazbear is only a robot he was never a kid he was only "lil Freddy" (lol) and no one ever got murdered except those kids from the blah pizzeria where they will blah get killed by the blah purple guy. Blah blah blah blady blah blah blah blah blah blah blah OH THE MURDER! You're thinking they got stuffed in the animatronics but they didn't you can see inside Foxy and he doesn't have nothing inside but a endoskeleton (is that even spelled right? ) and...they were stuck there to decay after the grand reopenning (again,spelled right? ) of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. And became...WITHERED.

No he didn't Freddy is a robot he was never a kid robots can't grow they can't get old either he can only get old by getting rusty or falling apart and I font get that he hit stuffed in a suit because gif the 100000000 time he's a robot hit a person or something real he's a robot robot ROBOT and Freddy doesn't have friends except his 3 main friends what do you mean by they got murdered he's a ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOTROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT ROBOT. Sorry but he's only a robot who is the lead singer at Freddy's PizzA on god show stage why is my keyboard making words I don't want. Why did I say god it's my keyboard it's doing weird stuff whatever please get me all they do is sing that song ever day at Freddy's pizza.

1. He's talking about a kid was stuffed inside Freddy.
2. His friends are inside Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy. - TeamRocket747

20 Funtime Foxy Funtime Foxy

Why would I feel bad for a gander confused Fox that kills you? Just no. - LilRose

For Funtime Foxy, so underrated, my favorite character, overshadowed by the others

SHE, but yes

He (I just triggered so many people) is stuck in a dark room all day by himself and has a motion detector that makes him go crazy
Don’t you feel bad for him?

1 Comment
21 Lefty Lefty

He helps you, and you leave him for scraps.

Why are we saying Lefty is harmless? lefty kills you. what is this, Foxy is a Good Guy 2.0? - TeamRocket747

He wanted to tell me something. I'm ashamed I did not listen to him, and also where is scrap baby! Like rlly? he's also harmless

He burned down in a pizza place after helping and not hurting you WHAT!

22 Broken Bonnie (FNAF 2)

No! it just inset fair the chicken and the bear even the fox didet have to go thru what I had to bare.


It's withered bonnie😠

Come on he got ripped apart in the Bonnie song why don't you feel bad about him?!

23 Funtime Freddy Funtime Freddy 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 His torso, head and BonBon Puppet is on the ground. Funtime Freddy more.

Bon bon: shut the f':* up and go back to sleep - Mefty

I think he's bee n programmed to hurt people maybe he can't help it I don't know but I feel sorry for all of them

Funtime freddy is kind of innocent but it seems like he hold back the most in fnaf sl - salvaged123

He never did anithing, it was just his bon bon

1 Comment
24 Golden Freddy Golden Freddy

I feel like he was the birthday boy. - TeamRocket747

He did kill phone guy but prolly for a good reason - Mefty

Its sad because he got killed by Purple guy like everyone els but he was special he is gold!

He is always being mistaken as the bad guy!

25 Withered Bonnie Withered Bonnie

I still feel bad for him - Mefty

Bonnie its time to FACE the facts heh punzzz - Mefty

I feel bad for Bonnie he was fine until they ripped his face and arm I mean how rude. He can't play his gutar. His lovely big eyes are now red little dots. If you here the Bonnie song please check it out then you will realise what he has been though. Now chica is close but foxy is always a little withered freddy has a few dents or holes chica has a broken jaw and no hands but Bonnie is left with a lower jaw but no face and no arm o voted withered Bonnie

Come on, y'all, how could you do Withered Bonnie like this? The other Withered Animatronics are pretty fine (other than maybe Withered Chica). Foxy looks pretty similar, and Freddy is close to identical. Bonnie got the worst out of the bunch, getting an even worse treatment than Chica.

Chica got her jaw widened to an extendable height, than got her arms ripped off. However, Bonnie got to keep his jaw... only to rip the rest of his head. His cute snout, his big eyes, all replaced with an array of teeth. The other animatronics are pretty fine, but Bonnie's Withered Form is probably the most rejected one.

"Who cares if poor Withered Bonnie made the FNAF 2 intro, I definitely love Toy Bonnie more." This one has my vote.

26 Lolbit Lolbit

I like her! She should be #1 on this list - Bendy gets a song, and not her? FLIP OFF, BRO.

I meant Ft Foxy don't mind meah bad spelling - Mefty

The cuter ft doxy even though a recola - Mefty

She is a funtime foxy reject also she is only in one game not even the real game the custom night.

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

...go... - Mefty

Chica is a normal chicken that isn't broken. She happily stares through your window waiting for you to open the door. Funnily enough, she doesn't care about your choice of words. Door is open, boom. Be prepared. She's fine, feel bad for the withered one.

Her hands are all wires, Her arms and legs got torn up. That picture of toy chica near the beginning of the list is this chica not the second!

I chica best and should be top on best list

28 Bonnet Bonnet

He's probably tired of people tapping him on the nose. He probably got a really bad bloody nose if he was human!

so bad


29 Balloon Girl Balloon Girl

Jj not baloon girl

She never gets to jumpscare you.

30 Phantom Chica Phantom Chica

31 Helpy


He breaks his neak rip

32 Toy Chica (FNAF 1)

She is the one who mainly has to deal Rule 34 art! How is that not horrible?!

You mean FNAF 2. But anyway, she lost her beak and eyes. Sure, it's nothing compared to Old Bonnie, Old Chica, or Mangle, but it's still a bit sad.

Toy chica is awesome and adorable in how to make fnaf 2 not scary

She needs more love! She lost her eyes and beek! It's the worst out of all the toys!

33 Fredbear

He didn't mean to kill the crying child! It was the kid's brother that put him in his mouth in the first place, and the springlocks probably messed up or something.

34 Henry (FNAF 4)

Isn't henery in bendy & the ink machine lol - Mefty


Remember him being killed by baby in FNAF world! Sereuoly in my story the purple guy is William and he shiver Henry in the springlock suit! I agree with Sky the nightgard. Henry is the evil one because his son and daughter got killed by the animatronics!
That's just my opinion.

35 Night Guard

UMM HELLO he got terrified by EVERY BODY you should feel bad for him

I'm. So freaked out as the player


36 Nightmare Fredbear 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 more.

He's so fat


37 Elizabeth Afton Elizabeth Afton

38 Charlotte Emily

She is the entertainer from her own gallery room, which is located from the west of Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental.

Balora is from the sequel to FNaF 4, Sister Location. Feel sorry for her because she's blind and she is being shocked literally SHOCKED every day! And she is forced to spin around all day!

44 Nightmarionne Nightmarionne Nightmarionne is a character from FNaF 4 who appears in a Halloween DLC added on October 31st, replacing Nightmare in Nightmare mode and Night 8. Nightmarionne appears in Five Nights at Freddy's 4, and Ultimate Custom Night. Nightmarionne is also a version of the Marionette from Five Nights at Freddy's more.

Nightmarionne is a Puppet Doesn't Anyone Else Feel Sorry For Nightmarione

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

Come on he has to play that guitar (ok that's really cool how he gets to play the guitar bug I see he's tired of doing it everyday.) and sing the same songs he've known since he've was built and the business of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza started.
