Top 10 Scariest Animatronics in the Five Nights at Freddy's Games

What is your most feared enemy in Five Night's at Freddy's?
The Top Ten
1 Puppet

Surely she's scary and stressful on fnaf 2, probably when I was playing, puppet was the scariest jumpscare in the whole fnaf because the stress of knowing the music box stopped makes it even scarier. Also, she is with her mouth open all the time, making it more scarier than what it is.

Okay, she's my second favorite character (to toy bon) but when you get that screen where you're Freddy on stage she's just following your gaze wherever you go. It's terrifying.
-spoilers to the books here-
However, I feel bad that she was the creator of the robots' daughter. Her soul was forced to live on in the puppet, and considering the neglect shown by the other children in the cake minigame and how her father just replaced her by the robot version of her without searching for her actual body, she has a right to be angry.

Puppet's face is creepy. The way she is smiling and her eyes is all black is even more creepy. If she could laugh, I bet it can be even more creepier. Maybe I am scare of her because I have a fear of clones? You know me. Puppet is my less-favorite. I'm sorry, but a opinion is a opinion.

The puppet is defiantly one of my favorites, and quite possibly one of the most intimidating to for many reasons.
1. His uncanny thin body
2. His vacant expressionless eyeless face
3. The fact that you have to play music for him so he doesn't kill you
4. How he's kinda like slender man
5. The fact that he has a crazy amount of supernatural powers
6. He doesn't fall for the flashlight or the Freddy mask
And 7. The awesome intimidating sadistic look on his face as he attacks you

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

Pretty sure Bonnie gave Scott nightmares when he was creating him. But no worries you don't need to agree with me , not everyone knows . Plus he's my favorite character out of all. I've known him longer than any other animatronic. -- Vxm.0

Bonnie isn't scary he (and pretty much every other character that's in good condition) just acts creepy. Can you imagine SpongeBob or dora the explorer wandering around your house at night and trying to kill you? The animatronics are scary because they twist on how we believe they should act. They act in ways the human brain doesn't comprehend which makes them somewhat frightening but at the same time not. Bonnie perfectly examplifies that. This list should be called creepiest five nights at freddy's characters. We might have more candidates that fit the role that way.

His eyes that steal your soul, his lack of eyebrows and the unshakeable feeling he knows who's watching him. The other animatronics look stereotypically scary, with dark circles and dead expressions. But Bonnie looks like he'll enjoy listening to your innards squish out of your suit. He was less scary in FNaF2 without a face. He's much scarier with his original face. Shame he didn't appear in FNaF3 as a hallucination, but a mercy as well. I'll have nightmares for weeks.

The first time I saw him he was pretty scary but the more I followed the game I got accustomed to him and the rest. But yeah he does seem quite scary, I mean even the creator himself admitted he was scared of him. But there's still one question left unsolved... Why do people find it creepy that Bonnie has no eyebrows, or even anyone without them for that matter?

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

In my opinion, Foxy is by far the scariest of all the animatronics. He is fast, creepy, and he is always out to kill the nightguard. In joy of creation, he always creeps right behind you with his flashing white and red eyes. He is different from the other animatronics, which makes him even more deadlier. He does not go easy on you, as he forces you to check on him and his curtain in the first game in order to stop him from sprinting down the hall at an abnormal speed and then poking his creepy face into your office, letting out a earsplitting shriek. Never underestimate Foxy the Pirate, because he will just keep on surprising you...

Of course everyone's favorite has to be at least in the top 5, and for good reasons to. First of all before the puppet, this was the first animatronic that didn't care about the rules, he would just take a peek out of his curtains and just go " ah to hell with this I'm running to that door". Second has to be how he's all withered and torn, which are pretty much ripped flesh to him. And finally for the fact on how he just pops through the door like the place was his. And even with all that he's still the most popular animatronic of the series

What if wrong with loads of you people? It's so obvious that foxy is is trying to kill you in the second game! He's set to be friendlier on the first game because of the bite of 87 happening in the second game because the second game is a prequel! He leans in because he's been set to be friendlier which explains why he's not as nice when he kills you is because the bite of 87 had not yet happened!

Foxy is the only character that you can see moving. He comes out of the Pirate Cove and sprints to the West Hall. He is more difficult than the other animatronics because he moves very fast and when you see Foxy running down the West Hall, you have to close the door before it is too late.

4 Mangle 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.

Though the other animatronics are all creepy in their own ways, mangle would have been scary even before he was ripped apart by toddlers. Now he's just a convoluted spider like thing, with two heads that is able to travel along the ceiling like a spider. Considering that his jumpscare is extremely unpredictable, it's a wonder how he is deemed less scary that bonnie and foxy.

Sure my first jump scare by Bonnie in fnaf 1 did make me and my brother scream, but Mangle has given me more heart attacks than any other. She has no timer for her jump scare, she can stick to the ceiling at 1 am and attack you at 4. Your almost never ready for it. And her design is straight up crazy. I always wanted a animatronic like this. I REALLY don't see why everyone is scared of Foxy, Mangle destroys Foxy in this list.

Mangle is my favourite animatronic! She's awesome! I loved her jump scare in the 2nd game. When I saw it I was startled but not screaming. But... Fnaf 4 changed that. God she's terrifying in the 4th game! I was playing with my friend since she had the DLC and we came across the pumpkin guy, thing. He's not that scary. But Mangle scared the crap out of me! Just kidding. But seriously, props to Mangle!

I get nightmares every time I look at or think about mangle. That...THING shouldn't be allowed in a kid's pizzeria. Sometimes me and my friends talk about how awesome it would be if Scott opened up a restaurant based off of FNaF, but if he includes mangle, I'm definitely not going

5 Golden Freddy

For me, The Nightmare for sure.
He has transparent black skin, visible endoskeleton pieces, and those eyes... They are so wide, bloodshot and gleeful you can see your own nightmares inside them. But the worst thing is, he enjoys it.
Nightmare laughs, as if he thinks it's just a big game, and he knows you can't escape anyway because even if you survive him, real life will eat you instead. His teeth are matted with red, and occasionally you can see them dripping with blood (rare screen).
The jumpscare is just, petrifying, because instead of a clear death, you don't know what he will do to you, as it takes you to the Warning screen. He just stares at you, and that radio static sounds like joy; like pleasure from the kill.

Yeah. Nightmare is scary.

Golden Freddy will have to be one of the scariest animatronics in fnaf 1. I remember how much Golden Freddy gave me nightmares when I was young, I was really scared of his jumpscare whenever I got killed by him. The way he comes in your office is kinda creepy when you think about it. I think golden Freddy could be a nightmare character in the fourth game. Don't you think?

I think Golden Freddy is definitely one of the mot disturbing characters, and by far the most creepy and unnerving of the FNAF 1 characters. His lifeless appearance and his unpredictable movements make him a fearsome foe, almost like a hallucination. His lower-pitched scream also sounds so scary.

That laugh is really creepy. Until he reaches my office, he just does this 'It's me' thing and it freaks me out! Not that the fact that he walks through doors. Just seeing the lifeless dead bodysuit makes me paranoid. But afterward, he just throws you the most DISTURBING roaring which makes me jump out of my chair.

6 Spring Trap

In my mind, Springtrap is the scariest of the bunch. Firstly because I can't seem to escape the fact there's a dead guy inside the animatronic. There's also the fact that he occasionally appears to be possessed by the aforementioned dead guy. This is suggested by the fact that in spite of his sometimes twitchy movements, the way he moves the rest of the time is almost too human (Google "uncanny valley" if you need an explanation). However, I'd say the possession idea is something of a best case scenario as the alternative is that purple guy is somehow still alive inside; just about. And that seems so much creeper to me.

Spring Trap is the scariest to me because his movements are erratic. He has times when he is extremely twitchy, most likely due to the faulty spring locks inside of him. It always reminds me that there is a dead body inside that thing. Then there are times when he moves very smoothly and and calmly (like when he goes for the kill), as if he premeditated your death and is relishing every second of it.

Spring Trap is just simply unnerving. 0__0

Springtrap is devastating in looks, but people who get killed by him don't get the creeps. The jumpscare isn't in the best in terms of scare factor. It's just the tragic backstory on the guy who gives us the can't sleep feeling. The design was a nightmare but people start to look to the other side of his creepy self. He possibly summons the phantoms to aid him and give him an advantage, as well as have you shoot (can't swear. ) in your pants. The 'ripping his head off to reveal the corpse' is also a scary thing to notice- first time you will see it you will cry. I myself isn't that scared as others, but still thinking of his history is a nightmare to never forget.

He is scary because you can see him looking at you from the window. The reason why he attacks us is also creepy. If you don't know why he is attacking us, okay here- He is attacking us because we are setting the animatronics souls free. He is attacking us as your punishment for reversing all the "work" he as done.

7 Freddy Fazbear 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.

In every game his jump scares are terrifying and always scare me. In the first game when the power goes out the screen goes dark, his face glows and his jingle is played. Then, if you're unlucky enough and just miss out on finishing the night, he will jump scare you! Also, he has another jump scare in the first game where he creeps in the office (when you're normally trying to find him or someone else) and then from behind gets in front of the night guard, eyeless (with just a tiny white dot) and jump scares you from really close up!

Out of all jump scares in the first game Freddys is scarier. It's so unexpected, not the power outage but from night three and onward. I HAVE figured out a strategy to keep him on the stage but there is no denying that I almost needed to buy a new pair of pants before I figured it out.

Freddy Fazbear, not Freddy the Fazbear. Though it does bring up a funny idea... Like if FNaF was narrated like a nature documentary...
Here we see the Freddus Fazbearus stalk its prey, a nightguard, in the dead of night. The victim seems unnerved by the fierce predator's hunting song, known by some as El Toreador. And suddenly, with its victory screech, the Freddus Fazbearus pounces!

Freddy is very scary because he usually pops out of nowhere. When your power runs out, that is when you should worry about him. He kills at any second and can let a jumpscare.

8 Faceless Bonnie

When I played fnaf 2, withered bonnie is such a pain to deal with, he also terrifies me to, when he toggles the lights it makes me a little baffled when he enters into the office. One time I was playing the custom night on fnaf 2 and I only had in the toy animatronics, but for some odd reason withered bonnie still came out and jump scared me at 5:58 am and I did not even have him picked for the custom night, so that kind of creeps me out

Withered Bonnie? Seriously? I love this dude , it just breaks me that he's been replaced by some plastic wrapped barbie ken doll . There is no way Toy Bonnie is going on Top 10 on the best bunnies out there . --Vxm.0

This is not scary. I'm happy he's far down on the list, but he shouldn't even be on it. I don't see anything scary about him, so why are you all saying he's so creepy?

Um, number 8? This guy scares me to death! Especially the way he just stands there in the office. No pose. He just stands and... Stares. BUT DON'T FORGET THE JUMPSCARE. When he attacks, he uses his one good arm to strangle you! Normally, a human can get out of a chokehold pretty easily. But a robot is able to lock it's hand up, making you unable to escape the way he holding you.

9 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 is bitten by the animatronic. This Fredbear also appears in Ultimate Custom Night, along with Nightmare Fredbear too.

Nightmare fredbear.. hm.. I love this dude . As well for nightmare I love these two designs they actually look like real nightmares to me . -- Vxm.0

Okay, this is self-explanatory. Seeing him on a cam would be fine with me if there were any in fnaf 4, but since there's not, seeing him right outside makes your skin crawl from his scary teeth and him staring into your soul.

I'd say all the FNAF 4 animatronics, are scary, (With the exception of Nightmare Freddy, which takes the cake for me.) This guy has two teeth on his head, with an Endoskeleton in the middle, and the body has, ANOTHER set of teeth. Honestly, I've never played this game, but I've seen images of it.

Being a Nightmare is probably one of the reasons why he's so creepy. He's designed to scare people and frighten them! His design makes him REALLY FREAKY with the sharp teeth and rips in his body.

10 Phantom BB

So creepy! I think the most creepy thing are the eyes, and they say they are the windows of your soul, So that means he has a creepy soul. those eyes, just staring at me, SO DUCKING CREEPY.

When I first played five nights at Freddy's 3, I looked in the camera on second night and his face is there. I don't know what it is, and I sit there waiting for him to go away. I finally close out and... What the $&@*%#?!

I bet if anyone recorded themself playing Fnaf 3, they wouldn't say that he's not scary at all. It's just so unexpected since in the first game, he just takes your batteries. So creepy/weird/gay

The eyes are what get me, they like, hell, they stare into you soul. Phantom BB knows...

The Contenders
11 Withered Chica

I really don't see why this is so high up. I understand that the t-shape of her body is kinda creepy... but there are ones lower down that I think way creepier.

Definitely THE creepiest animatronic for me in the entire fanchise. Not because of her behavior, but because of her appereance. The soulless stare from her browless eyes in combination with the oversized eye sockets and the loose, giant beak are already terrifying enough. But then, there's also those stretched out and handless arms, exposing massive wires, which were once covered by her now missing hands and remind me somehow of veins. That's what I call nightmare fuel!

Withered Chica really creeps me out and scares me. Something about her appearance, especially her face and her broken arms really scares me. She has an extremely threatening demeanor and looks like a living killing machine, and her soulless eyes are terrifying. I definitely can't stand to look at her for very long.

This has the worst design out of all the animatronics. Imagine waking up at 3AM and this THING starts to chase you. Terrifying I swear, espically with those widened eyes that make Withered Chica look like a drug attic psychopath as well as that broken jaw...

12 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.

I mean, his name is Nightmare and the shadow does fear him... Even though he is basically made of shadows. And what someone else said about joking around to make him less scary, well... I played FNaF 4 one time and I started hyperventilating before anything even happened. and the night with Nightmare just made it worse. I can't imagine being Chris... I'm surprised Chris even got through the first night without having a heart attack the first time. I feel bad for the guy.

Look guys, he is by far the scariest. His creep qualities are second to none. Not even Nightmare Fredbear, who is second. Fred bear is not as scary only because he's not black and doesn't fit with the background (cause he's yellow and yellow is bright) and in my opinion fredbear is more expected. NO ONE EXPECTS NIGHTMARE. And he's always switching from one hall to another. All of the animatronics have lackluster creep ability compared to nightmare. DID I MENTION HIS VOICE IN ULTIMATE CUSTOM? Creepiest voice on the roster(even fredbear, who is second again). He stares at you from the right side like a demon, not the scariest appearance but still creepy and demonic. Definitely the scariest! "The sun fears me..."

Nightmare is kinda scare cause his voice is very deep and he is pitch black with red eyes and claws and blood on his teeth. And I actually kinda hate blood. Other than that he is super cool!

What?! Nightmare is the scariest animatronic in FNaF! It is scarier than Nightmare Fredbear, Bonnie and even The Puppet! He should be in the top! Nightmare is on the cover of the book Five Nights at Freddy's: The Twisted ones.

13 Chica the Chicken

Chica was super scary in almost all the FNAF games, except 4. In fnaf 1, the way Chica looks at the camera next to the girls bathroom just looks super horrifying! I would never use the bathroom in Freddy Fazbear's pizza. And her eyes... Something about it just scares the hell out of me. And in Fnaf 2, withered Chica's appearance in the office is just super horrifying to even think about! Her arms are all up, with the wires dangling from her arms. And her eyes again... They are SO BIG. And don't forget how wide open her jaw is. Imagine seeing withered Chica just popping up infront of your desk looking at you like that. Faceless Bonnie is not so scary compared to her, but I still find Faceless Bonnie scary.

Chica is only number 8? You have GOT to be kidding me, she is number 1 scariest! The way she looks at you in the first game while next to the women's restroom is SUPER creepy! Her wide eyes and threatening feet as seen on the poster, she is a lot scarier than Bonnie. Imagine Chica looking at you through your window like she does in the game, then just got in your room. That would be one of the scariest things!

I dunno what makes her so scary to me, but something in her is quite creepy and disturbing. Maybe because she seems that she hasn't be on working since a lot time, so she kinda looks like "rotten" to me. Anyways, though Chica is one of the scariest animatronics to me, gotta love that creepy derpy face. It makes me laugh but at the same time it's disturbing.

I don't think she'd be as scary if she didn't have the oldish look, what also all the faces that she makes in the game that don't look at all normal. She looks like blood should be apart of the design on her body. It's maddd creepy how she is also the most desperate to kill you, waiting outside your doorway mocking you until Freddy arrives at power out.

14 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 2.

Really, I love puppet.
There's so much story, and it makes the game better!
But hey, this one just freaks. Me. Out. The body looks like a skeleton, and then from that picture being cut off, it looks like it has horse hooves but still- The way it's head is just tilted just scares me, like it's trying to look into your soul and find your secrets. After I saw this, I decided that Puppet would take it's place behind Bonnie.

How is this thing not at least in the top ten?!?!?! Why is TOY Bonnie before this nightmarish... thing?!?! This guy gives me super-ultra-nightmares. Imagine Toy Bonnie standing over you, watching you as you sleep. Now think of Nightmarionne looming over you, staring into your soul.

This is my enemy from hell. Unlike the other Fnaf 4 animatronics with their large, stupid looking teeth and ripped bodies, Nightmarionne looks like he came from a creepypasta or somebody's sleep paralysis demon.

Have you seen those arms?! NightMarionne isn't the scariest but he's pretty creepy just imagine seeing him under your bed at night it's crazy he's 15th on the list

15 Phantom Foxy

I find all phantom animatronics creepy, and phantom foxy is no exception. Kinda reminds me of withered foxy but actually scary. Not that high only my list though (not that I have one).

He might be everyone's favorite, but that phantom version of him almost scared me to death, and to make matters worse, he's missing an arm. Poor Foxy!

I was on the phone once playing fnaf 3 and put down the moniter went to the left to check for springtrap and Phantom Foxy jumscared me and I screamed so loud and the caller was like "What happened? " so I said "I'm playing Fnaf" and the callers like "Oh, ok makes sense"

Literally Withered Foxy with Bendy's ink splashed on him. Not that scary.

16 Scrap Baby

Jesus, at least her jumpscare isn't scary. Scrap baby gives me the chills. Whenever I see her I think "Why can't you look as kid-friendly as you did in SL?".

Imagine turning the corner and seeing this guy on the ground, leaning against the wall. You think nothing of it but still find it a bit creepy. You continue down the path but then you hear ramping behind you. you turn around and discover that the thing is now chasing you! you dash down the hall as fast as you can. you finally reach your office and put your key in with shaky hands. You swing the door open and you see that someone else is in your office. You ask them who they are, but they just turn around. You see that it was the thing chasing you earlier!

Finally an animatronic that's actually freaky. I mean, she was a staggering 7.2 feet tall, and was designed to kill children to help Afton's sick scheme, with a razor sharp claw to easily murder and stuff a child's body into her stomach to be stored. This version of her isn't any better, with a giant lobster claw and protruding wires.

Scrap Baby, or I'll call Freak Baby, is just like, freaky! The Five Night's At Freddy's Sister Location one was already creepy. Joining 2 fears together: clowns and dolls. She also murdered children, and is like, uh, I'll just say huge. Doesn't help that now she actually attacks you, has a claw that could head cut you, and roller skate, maybe making her faster? Salvaging her too, GET ME OUT OF THIS ROOM!

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 they (Ennard) can leave the facility they've been trapped in.

Ennard is quite a scary character, especially based on the fact that he uses manipulation and impersonation so frequently to lure you into a false sense of security while he manipulates other animatronics. He is an amalgamation of everything bad and scary, and wants revenge and to escape.

Much more disturbing than the other SL bots. Funtime Freddy & Foxy are adorable by comparison, Baby doesn't really hit home for me, and Ballora's creepy, but that's it. Ennard threw me for a loop when I first saw him. It's like, WHAT IS THAT!?!? This is definitely not worth exotic butters!

This dude looks like metal spaghetti all tangled up and put on a clown mask. I mean who does that!

Lovely scooping out your insides and then using your dead body as a disguise. That's adorable.

18 Purple Man

Uh... Guy creeps me out especially when he dies and then the next night it's a demonic voice I think it might be purple man / phone guy came and he has come back to haunt you. That was the most scary two nights in the game for me

We all love a man whose skin is a sickly shade of purple, going slowly insane as he kills over, what, 15 children during the whole span of the Fnaf series? How cute.

Why isn't he in the top 10! He literally killed 5 children (or more) and He is haunting the Springtrap (Spring bonnie) suit! Imagine him stalking you at night!

Bro is NOT scary. There is a tiny SPEC about him that is scary and that's what happens when you survive him.

19 Withered Foxy

ALL of the foxy suck. They're not scary, but they just suck. But THIS foxy gave me nightmares! I load up the game one day and there is just this creepy picture of his face, making me scared and disturbed. It looks like some eyeless bonnie except with a fox!

I guess he's scary because in the first game, all he does is lean in. I guess it's the uncertainty that really scares you

Not that scary to be honest. Foxy isn't scary.

He just jumps at you and that's it why?

20 Nightmare Balloon Boy

This is one of the animatronics that I find the scariest. Nightmarrione is the other one that gives me heart palpitations when I get jumpscared by them. CREEPY!

If you aren't scared of him then you are a god and this should be number 1.

Too many teeth, hope you don't have some sort of disgust against teeth.

I hate when you see him on the camera than boom so scary espacialy without eyes god! I'm wetting myself

21 Nightmare Freddy

I used to think all the characters were cute. But the rows of teeth kind of got to me. I really like all of the animatronics. Until I saw him on the internet... But I just love fnafs games. Great job Scott!

He's not as scary, since he only attacks you if either too many mini Freds are on your bed or if you just stand at a part of a room for too long.

Freddy was bad enough. You know what! Scratch that. All Freddie's are terrible. Scary!

Eh I'm not that scared of him but if this was a real life situation I would freak! Well maybe all of us for all the aniamatroincs .-.

22 Phantom Puppet

As scary as Phantom BB. Probably because they have the same kind of eyes. If you read my comment about Phantom BB, you know what I think about the eyes.

He stares into your eyes as if he is trying to hypnotize you, he refuses to leave and seriously you also see him standing in the hall even his reflection is present in the puddle I mean, this... Thing can teleport.

The music that plays when he appears in your face is honestly terrifying.

Phantoms are never scary. I don't even flinch at the sight of them anymore.

23 Nightmare Chica

She's like fnaf 1 chica but scarier, and I'm honestly already scared of the first one.

I think that nightmare chica is the most scariest animatronic in fnaf whey more than puppet.

Molten freddy has multiple rows of teeth...

None of the Fnaf 4 animatronics are scary.

24 Phantom Chica

If I had to choose a Chica that is some what scary, I'd choose Phantom Chica since in Fnaf 3, the hallucinations are the scariest things in the game. Still, she's pretty crap because all the chicks are crap.

It isn't Chica herself that scares me, its that face that appears on the arcade game console that really scares me.

Chica is so scary because of how the camera goes down fast and pow!
a ugly fat duck who looks like it has piles of blood dripping down her face its horrifying!

Her eyes, I can't-

25 Marionette

Same thing isn't it!?!?!?!?

She is the best
