Top 10 Best Five Nights at Freddy's Characters

We've all heard about this popular (and seemingly terrifying) horror game. 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.

If you take it into consideration (and don't hate me for this), but if you think about it, in the first Five Nights at Freddy's game, Foxy doesn't get all in your face like Bonnie, Chica, and Freddy do. He just leans in and screams. A theory once said that the player may have died of a heart attack due to his scream. Think about this too: he was isolated in Pirate Cove for ten years (or less, I don't know), and he has been quite lonely.

If you say he is the cause of 'The Bite of '87', you're wrong. There are four suspects, including Foxy. The four suspects are Mangle, for she can just swing down and bite your head. Golden Freddy, for the shutdown of Fredbear's Diner because of the murder of a child. Foxy, for the shutdown of the cove. And finally Freddy, for the strange child handprints on his face (if you have not seen that before, please look).

Besides, there are things that people like about Foxy. He's a pirate, after all. Who doesn't like pirates? And people have thought about how he's never noticed and only wants to be noticed. So, it's right for Foxy to take first place because of the isolation and little attention he receives. That's why everyone likes Foxy.

Everyone may have their own opinions, but this is mine in general.

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 because 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 does make him look creepier. Sure, he may be a bit creepy, but claiming he is the creepiest is highly debatable.

Compare him to Freddy, Chica, and even Golden Freddy. Freddy can enter your office without any warning. Ihascupquake found Chica to be the creepiest because of the weird glare she gives you. As for Golden Freddy, he can still enter your office even with both doors closed, 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 has already received too much love.

Bonnie also suffered the most since he lost his face and his arm and didn't have a phantom version in FNaF 3. He was supposed to have the running animation in the game, but it was later given to Foxy. And if I were Bonnie, I would not want to be called the creepiest. I think Bonnie is the cutest because he is just a rabbit, and rabbits are cute. His cuteness matches that of Foxy's without being as overrated.

3 Mangle Mangle is a character from Five Nights at Freddy's 2. They have a yellow eye and a black eye. They are designed as a broken fox.

Mangle has a beautiful design and an amazing story of how the children literally tear her apart and put her back together for fun. It's traumatizing, and not only that, I love her voiceline, I'm gonna tear you apart and put you back together just like the kids do to me.

I also love how she climbs on the walls and has an endo head on her body.

Mangle is a truly unique animatronic. After being torn apart by toddlers, Mangle's terrifying appearance and intriguing mode of movement, which includes using three legs and traversing ceilings and walls, stand out. Additionally, Mangle's voice is distinct, featuring a dual-layered aspect.

This trait is mirrored in Mangle's augmented reality personality, which suggests a dual nature. Mangle is remarkable.

4 Golden Freddy

Very interesting character. Unlike the other classic or withered animatronics, he's actually controlled by two kids. One is the crying child and the other is the vengeful spirit.

Golden Freddy (or Fredbear) was the original character at Fredbear's Family Diner. He accidentally bit a child in 1987 (or 1983) and took out part of his brain. This incident caused his restaurant to get shut down. Later on, a little boy named Michael was lured into the back room with four other kids and murdered by William Afton. Michael possessed the Golden bear. A very tragic story.

Do not tell me Golden Freddy is not Fredbear. "Silver Eyes" confirmed they were the same due to the line, "It was Freddy. Not the one they all knew. It was the other one. The one she remembered, the yellow Freddy from the diner." There. PROOF that Golden Freddy and Fredbear are the same. "But the book isn't canon!" Well, William Afton is still the Purple Guy in the games, so Fredbear is still Golden Freddy in the games. Thanks for your time.

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's design is so peak that this man can be in my dreams and be a good guy like Glamrock Freddy. I would love to be the night guard if every robot was nice because they would be so fun to get to know.

I love how Freddy is portrayed as the alpha of the three other characters and is the most intimidating character in FNAF.

In the first game, he was the most chilled and the most intelligent as he would laugh every time he moved, hung out in the women's restroom, and played his music before finishing you off. In the second game, he was just completely badass. And his withered look was awesome as well.

In the third game, he played a minor role as a phantom, with the main antagonist being Springtrap. In the fourth game, I believe Freddy was at his weakest since it was really easy to avoid him. The main antagonist of the game being Fredbear.

6 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 had a nightmare about Springtrap. I dreamed I was lying in bed and then felt pressure on my neck. I opened my eyes and saw that he was on top of me, choking me. I was scared out of my mind. I remember seeing those eyes staring straight into mine and struggling underneath him. I couldn't move or breathe.

I finally managed to sit up and woke up with my heart pounding. Thanks, Scott, for making me experience sleep paralysis for the first time in my life.

Springtrap is my favorite, as he is the creepiest of them all appearance-wise. It drives you insane just looking for him. When the phantoms decide to jumpscare you, it gets your heart beating as you wait for the systems to reboot. He may be walking to you from the halls or in the vents, making you think fast to lure him into another room or die trying.

The fact that the Purple Guy died from him is a bonus, as it adds to the storyline. Plus, it's an example of served justice and bitter irony.

7 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.

Charlotte Emily was such a precious little girl who didn't deserve anything she had to go through. Her dad created the puppet to protect her from evil. However, when she was locked outside of the pizzeria and killed by Afton, she ended up becoming the puppet and protecting the other victims.

For obvious reasons, the Puppet is a standout character. Its design is not only cool but also deeply intertwined with the game's lore, housing the soul of William's first victim who later resurrects the children. The Puppet's design is unnerving with its permanent grin, eyeless mask, relentless tears, and thin, lanky frame - truly terrifying.

8 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 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 the original game). Then you hear the groans of Chica in your office.

I do think that maybe the reason that Toy Chica looks 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!

9 New Bonnie

Toy Bonnie is Bonnie as a toy but blue instead of purple, which I hate so much, the same about the movie. But I would love to be this toy bunny because the man gets to play with Toy Chica every night.

There is something about this blue bunny that just connected with me. Something about him just screams, quite literally sometimes, adorable. Maybe it's 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 it. What's not to love?

10 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 its torso, head and BonBon Puppet is on the ground. Funtime Freddy... read more

He is the best ever. I love his voice and his personality. The glitches, the distortion, the slight psychopathy, and the erratic insane happiness he displays are captivating.

I feel he is more bloodthirsty and insane than Purple Guy himself, as he delights in killing just for the sake of it and seems to enjoy what he does. Purple Guy has not been shown to enjoy his actions (though he probably does), can still reason (to a slight extent), and is not as deranged as Funtime Freddy.

He also has a really cool mechanic, and the fact that his will was stronger than Ballora's and Funtime Foxy's makes him one of my personal favorites. I also love Molten Freddy, with his more blob-like appearance and his two sets of faceplates for some reason.

The Contenders
11 Circus Baby

She's another main reason why I don't like William Afton/Springtrap. He designed his killing machine based on his 6-year-old daughter, and she ends up getting killed inside it. Her soul got corrupted by all the programming and controlled shocks. Poor Elizabeth, she was just a toddler who admired her father for his creations and wanted him to see her the way she sees him.

She is one of my favorites because she's actually very kind. I'm not talking about her appearance. Everyone is beautiful in their way. Yes, she killed Elizabeth, but when you think about it, she says that she didn't want to and didn't know what she was doing. Circus Baby is the only character that is kind.

12 New Chica

She's so adorable! I love how well her designs are. I love her little cupcake. I like how she can take her beak off and her eyes change from blue to black.

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, I decided to keep the mask on the whole time, but I ended up taking it off, and she jump-scared me. I keep changing my mind about my favorite character, but this time I will stay with Toy Chica.

Very cute, but not in a weird way (I'm female). I love the colors chosen for her: pink, yellow, and blue eyes. I like how she can take her beak off.

In my opinion, she's slightly more annoying than Toy Bonnie because you have to listen for her leaving the vents, even though it could be another animatronic. I don't like her voice lines, except for some involving her missing beak.

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.

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 it.

Note: You would not want to mess around with this guy, because he will mess you up.

14 Funtime Foxy Funtime Foxy is one of the seven animatronics (twelve if the Custom Night animatronics are counted) and an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. It is a circus-themed version of Foxy. It is also one of the entertainers of the Funtime Auditorium (which is located to the east of Circus... read more

Funtime Foxy has unique markings and looks, unlike Foxy the Pirate. Foxy welcomed the change, and I think it's pretty unique how Scott Cawthon revamped Foxy the Pirate. However, Funtime Foxy is clearly not a pirate. In my opinion, it's a great change, and I really like him or her (the gender of Funtime Foxy is not confirmed).

I love Funtime Foxy because they have a fun and colorful personality. I don't think their gender will ever be found out, but that's what makes Funtime Foxy even cooler.

What the? Number 20? This should be number 5. She's just so cute. And, I mean, she's not Mangle (Love you, Mangle). They have different teeth and stuff. But yeah, totally love it.

15 Phone Guy

We need more Phone Guy. Many players find him annoying and choose to mute him, but his guidance can be unexpectedly helpful. Furthermore, experiencing his death in the game is quite disheartening. He was one of the first characters to die and does not receive due recognition for his contributions.

The Phone Guy provides directions for the game and explains some realistic elements each night. On Night 4, he is killed by an entity, likely Golden Freddy.

I just like to hear his voice when I know I'm probably going to die. It's comforting. Also, if the theories are correct, he's got one hell of a backstory. The thought of him being the Golden Freddy killer is quite disturbing, right?

16 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 five nights in a row, even though he is at extreme risk of death. I mean, come on. This place only pays $120 a week, and you have to go through almost getting killed every night. Mike is an awesome dude.

That's us. Poor Mike went through so much, and all he wanted was a simple job to pay a couple of bills. What did he get instead? A large group of psychotic robots who want to rip him apart. That's fair treatment for the employees right there.

17 Lolbit Lolbit is an animatronic from Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. It is a recolored version of Funtime Foxy's disembodied head. Lolbit appears as a minor Easter Egg in the main game, and also features in the Custom Night as a customizable character.

Considering the kinds of creatures that lurk in FNaF world, Lolbit is pretty brave in where she decides to set up shop. She must be pretty tough too, if she's going to be attacked by enemies non-stop. That gal's got to defend her stock. She must do a good job. I wouldn't mind having her as a playable character.

Where she sells Block 50, 20, and 5 bytes, though, is my favorite. That far in a mine? That's awesome.

Lolbit is my absolute favorite FNaF character because Lolbit is like me. I know that sounds weird, but I like that Lolbit can distract the player and confuse them with the "please stand by" sign. I love the funny personality.

18 Ballora 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.

She always closes her eyes, so I assume that she always feels sleepy (just like me). She closes them even when she is dancing in the trailer. By the way, I am a sleepyhead. If you ask me to describe her with two adjectives, I would say creepy and sleepy.

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.

This is just sad. All she wants to do is dance on her tracks. What else does she get instead? She gets shocked daily and falls off her tracks, forcing her to crawl and look for you even though she is blind. Then, she's thrown into a spaghetti pile by the leader and then burned into the abyss. No wonder why she wants to come to your house in special delivery.

19 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

Ennard is just awesome. I love how he craves exotic butters. I think that the exotic butters thing makes him less scary. He is the scariest character in all of FNaF, and that's saying something.

Ennard is honestly the best to me. I don't know why people think he's so evil and just see him and say, "Oh, he's the worst." All he did was scoop you. Plus, he's possessed by a child. He probably doesn't have any idea what he's doing.

The best idea Scott's had for a character design so far. Not the best in execution (I'd like to see some qualities of all the characters inside of him), but he's a super intimidating character.

20 Withered Foxy

When he's in the hallway, you've got to keep flashing the light at him every now and then to repel them away.

I have to say I love Withered Foxy. He is my favorite, tied with the Marionette and Withered Chica. Even though he is annoying, I like a Foxy challenge. Every time I am on 5 a.m., Foxy and Chica gang up on me. Chica goes in my room, then Foxy jump scares me, but I like it because I always get a mini-game.

Every time he's in the hallway, it immediately twists my stomach.

21 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.

Michael Afton is an interesting character. His role starts at FNaF 4 when he bullies the crying child. His father (William Afton) tells him to go to SL and save Elizabeth from Baby. He saves Elizabeth, and she gets out of Baby, but she is dead. Michael has to go and save all the other killed kids to take away his father's sins.

And finally, when he does that, he meets his father at Fazbear's Fright. His story is very interesting as being the hero in the story mainly. I really like Michael Afton.

You play as him in Pizzeria Simulator and FNAF1, not just in Sister Location. He uses many names to avoid being connected to his father. He may possibly be the protagonist of several other games as well (3 and 4 and the last night of 2), but we don't know.

I like how he connects the player character to the story, giving us a reason why someone would repeatedly put themselves into the path of killer animatronics. It's personal for Mike.

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

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 jump scare 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.

I love him. He should be even more popular than he is now.

He scared me for a week when I saw his picture. Or me.

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

This guy gives me the creeps. A lot of people will say Bonnie or Springtrap scare them the most, but Nightmare Fredbear scares me the most. The bite of '83 makes him all the more terrifying, and even his original design is horrific. His jump scare may get old, but he is actually the most horrifying pursuer.

He is my favorite animatronic. He can rock a hat and bow tie, but unlike Freddy, who can do the same, he looks brutal with his teeth. I'm very sad to see him so low on the list. And come on, Foxy at the top is ridiculous. He is so basic. I could understand like Nightmare Foxy or Mangle, but come on.

24 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... read more

He is super awesome, and he is my favorite animatronic from the entire series. It would be cool if I met him face to face.

Its kind of creepy face is kind of funny!

He looks a lot like Slenderman!

25 Old Bonnie

Withered Bonnie is Bonnie with his face torn off, which makes him look so scary. He is the scariest when he is in the vents, but he is not scarier than the nightmares.

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

As a fangirl, I know that Bonnie is highly favored (after Foxy), but just because he looks cute. Well, I like Withered Bonnie because he scared his creator, Scott Cawthon, and he looks as if he had a very intense battle and came out winning. Also, not that this is true, but when he raises his right hand to end your game, who knows if he's actually going to grab you, like, "come on kid, we're going to escape".
