Top Ten Animatronics Who May Have Caused "The Bite of 87"

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 believe it was Foxy because LOOK AT THOSE TEETH, and he does have a few broken ones. Foxy makes a reasonable choice because if it was Freddy, Chica, or Bonnie, they wouldn't still be active.

Foxy has an 'Out Of Order' sign and is locked away in Pirate's Cove forever. One story I read said, "Foxy was taking pictures with kids after the show. (will not say name) jumped in line... The kid in front of him was taking a picture with Foxy. Then Foxy picked up the kid and bit down on his head. Everyone was screaming and I called the ambulance."

So, I believe it was Foxy even though I LOVE FOXY. I think it was Foxy.

2 The Mangle

Seriously, Foxy? I thought the community was a lot smarter than this. The question is, "Which animatronic likely caused the Bite of '87?" not "Who is your favorite animatronic?"

Foxy and the other withered animatronics were being stored in the parts and service room at the time and were definitely NOT anywhere near the customers! Any FNAF fan with even a small grasp of the lore knows the most likely culprit is The Mangle.

Scott basically spells it out for you with Mangle's jumpscare, going right for the top of the head. Coincidence? As MatPat has correctly stated: Scott doesn't do coincidences!

3 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.

It might have been Freddy because it's hard to tell, but he has handprints on his face. You can look it up if you don't believe me. Also, on the rules poster, rule number 6, it says "Don't touch Freddy," probably speculating that something bad happened with Freddy in the past, taking place in 1987.

In the East Hall, if you look closely, it says "Don't touch Freddy," which might be because of the bite.

It makes sense. He has the hand marks and everything.

4 Golden Freddy

Golden Freddy was on stage when Big Brother and his bully friends took Crying Child to the stage and shoved his head in Golden Freddy's mouth. They underestimated the power of the mechanical jaw, and it crushed into Crying Child's head.

In the first game, when you go to "The Costume Night" and set it to 1987, the Golden Freddy jumpscare appears.

He's the one who actually caused the bite. Just admit that he and Fredbear are the same character.

5 The Puppet The Puppet, also commonly known as The Marionette, is an animatronic and the main antagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He stays in the Prize Corner. Jeremy Fitzgerald and Fritz Smith must wind up a music box, or else he will attack the player.
6 Bonnie Bonnie is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.
7 Toy Chica

There is multiple pieces of evidence that Toy Chica caused the Bite of '87.

1. Scott Cawthon asked the community a specific question about FNAF 4, about why an action figure of Toy Chica is missing her beak.

2. Toy Chica in Ultimate Custom Night talks about her beak being in your head.

3. She would've been around at the time, near the people, because of her being a toy animatronic.

This is all the evidence I remember off the top of my head.

I think Toy Chica caused the Bite of '87. Why? In FNAF 2, animatronics are still allowed to walk around during the day, right? That means the Bite has yet to happen. Remember, the Bite of '87 is what made animatronics in the future not roam anymore.

If it was Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, or Foxy, then why are they in FNAF 1 and still performing? Golden Freddy or Springtrap couldn't have caused it, because they can't even move after FNAF 4. The Puppet doesn't even have a mouth, and The Mangle isn't even supposed to move!

That leaves us with the other three toys. Out of the three, the only one I believe has the most capability of biting someone is Toy Chica. To back this up, in UCN, Toy Chica says, "Where's my beak? Lodged in your forehead, of course..."

Toy Chica 100% caused the Bite of '87.

8 Balloon Boy

Nightmare BB is the only character in FNAF World that has Mega Bite aside from Fredbear (who did the Bite of '83). Since Nightmare BB is just a nightmare (so not real), obviously it was normal Balloon Boy.

He, of course, conveniently also happens to be in FNAF 2, which takes place in '87.

This would explain why Balloon Boy was also scrapped despite not having much of a mouth.

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

It could be Chica because MAYBE during the day, she would bring out the cake for a birthday party, and take a bite out of it. But she malfunctioned and did the bite early. A child was there, causing the Bite of '87.

Because her bib says Let's Eat, which could mean something about the bite.

The bib on Chica was supposed to entertain the kids so they would eat. (That's my theory.)

10 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
The Contenders
11 Purple Guy
12 Fredbear

As watching the mini-game, it shows Fredbear biting the kid in the head after a joke gone wrong by bullies. This is most likely the cause of the Bite of '87, as the kid even faces Fredbear on the last night, and all the animatronics disappear and are nowhere to be seen.

Because in the mini-game ending, he clearly kills Chris Afton (C.C.), and Fredbear was made before Mangle.

He's one of the first animatronics Scott made.

13 Toy Freddy Toy Freddy is a new animatronic and one of the antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, also being a titular antagonist.
14 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

He was the one who did "the bite" so he must be the one who caused it. He also ate all of The Crying Child's friends and family and turned them into animatronics.

It also could have been normal Fredbear because they probably look the same in the mini-game. (I never played, but from my knowledge, I think Fredbear is even in FNAF 4. If he was, they probably do.)

If you look in FNAF 4, the Crying Child is in Fredbear's mouth. And, if you look closely, he has blood on his teeth and gums. If you didn't know, the Crying Child is Golden Freddy. I'll be explaining it soon.

15 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.

He did because in FNAF 4 it is 1987, and when he finds you, he bites your head, so it was Nightmare. I also think it was Fredbear because he has sharp teeth. I saw Never Be Alone, and the FNAF 4 child's brother and his friends tossed him into Fredbear's mouth.

16 Toy Bonnie Toy Bonnie is one of the newer animatronics and one of the antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He is Bonnie's "redesigned" counterpart from the past who replaced Bonnie's own pre-rebuilt incarnation Withered Bonnie for improvement.

The Bite of '87 was an incident that occurred in 1987 at the New Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, during the last shift of Jeremy Fitzgerald, when he was bitten by Toy Bonnie in the forehead, drastically damaging the frontal lobe.

He could have done it by accident. Fredbear did the Bite of 1983, not 1987. Also, many may have a point on Foxy, but it could have been the night guard we play as in FNAF 2 that could have happened before FNAF 1.

17 Withered Foxy

Could not be him. He was in parts and service. But, maybe the bite was at night 6.

18 Twisted Wolf
19 Nightmare Mangle Nightmare Mangle is a nightmarish counterpart of Mangle who first debuts in the Halloween Edition of Five Nights at Freddy's 4 where it replaces Nightmare Foxy, alongside Nightmare Balloon Boy, Nightmarionne, Jack-O-Chica, and Jack-O-Bonnie.

Yes, Nightmare Mangle is technically the same as Foxy except female, with a different design, and she's in the Halloween version. That's why I think she could have caused it too. She's kinda cute.

20 Withered Freddy
21 Withered Chica

Doesn't she have blood in her jaw?

22 Nightmare Foxy Nightmare Foxy is a character who appears in FNaF 4 on Night 2. Nightmare Foxy runs down the hall and sneaks in through your slightly opened door and hides in the closet, until you close the closet door for long enough. He will attack if you don't close the closet door long enough or it takes you a... read more

As a nightmare, Foxy is much more vicious, dangerous, and faster than his corporeal counterpart, making him a brutal killer. Since he's brutal, he might do it.

When he is in the closet and you check it, he looks like he is about to bite you.

23 Springbonnie

I mean it's down to Springbonnie or, in other words, Springtrap and Fredbear, or in other words, Golden Freddy. They were around in 1987 and 1983.

24 Nightmare Balloon Boy
25 Circus Baby

I mean, when I watched, she got Elizabeth. So, yeah.
