Scariest Animatronics In Five Night's at Freddy's

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

The Puppet is actually my favorite anamintronic. She is one of the scariest though. (Puppet is technically a female because the ghost that posses her, Charlotte Emily, is female)

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.

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.

I just think he is always smiling which is creepy. and because he is very hard to beat so you get his jumpscare so often but you never get used to it

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.

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?

I remember the time ihascupcake's video. The time she play fnaf. She close the left door because when she turn on the light. HECK! We both scream and immediately cose the door. Then she kept turning on the light and he's not there. I knew Bonnie is outside of the door, not to dare dhow his face. Ihascupcake is about to open the door and I panic. When she open it and turn on the lights. We both scream again then Foxy came and I jump.

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...

Do what you want cause a pirate is free you are A pirate! We're sealing away adventures on every morph! We set sail explore (yar har!) yar yar fiddle dee dee being a pirates alright to be! Hang the black flag of the top of the mast! You are a pirate!

Foxy's jump scare back then was creepy. The way you can hear him running up to your door, not being able to have time to check the cameras, the way he smashes into the door, how he jumps at you-- Nah, I'm out. That is way too creepy. But, what can I say?

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

4 Golden Freddy

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?

Can I be honest and say he/she is the SCARIEST out of the whole game. The fact that he/she is behind everything just makes it more creepy, and when he/she jump scares you it's just straight up his/her face with no eyeballs. And the 'It's me' makes it way more scary. (And why I'm putting he/she is because of Cassidy and CC)

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's look is nice. Not creepy. But, his jump scare is creepy. At the same time, it is annoying. You don't know when he is coming to your office. His jump scare is so creepy. His jump scare also annoys me because it is so loud. Who else thinks the same?

5 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.

Aside from Shadow Bonnie, Mangle is the scariest. She reminds me of that monster from The Thing and has quite a tragic backstory: torn apart by cute little rascals.

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!

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.

6 Spring Trap

Springtrap is possessed by William Afton, which means he technically IS William. That's what makes it so creepy! William Afton is the one who killed the missing children, but he was ALSO the one who got springlocked inside of Spring Bonnie. Most people would have just thought that this was the end of him, but NO! Inside of Springtrap, Afton is planning on coming back. After all, he always comes back!

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.

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.

Most of the animatronics have little kid souls in them but Springtrap there's a murderer in there, Afton tried to hide in parts and service from the ghosts of the children he killed and hid in the springbonnie suit but the gears crushed him to death. 30 years later he got released

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 Phantom BB

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 $&@*%#?!

Please, he is so predictable, you can always tell when he will attack, I find kittens scarier than that robotic joke.

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...

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 ...read more.

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.

The reason I put FredBear and not Nightmare is because, NM FredBear gave me nightmares (literally) the first time I played the 4th game. But Nightmare's jumpscare is just a radio ripoff, sorry Nightmare fans, but it's true.

I think that nightmare Fredbear is way scarier than ugly Ikky puppet and nightmare Fredbear should be the first scariest animatronic on this page.

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.

10 Withered Chica

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...

She is the scariest out of all the withered and toys, the fact that her jaw opens up all the way in her jumpscare just gives me chills. And she literally comes at the screen.

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.

The Contenders
11 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.

He is literally see through and is a shadow looking Fredbear and he has sharp teeth and has teeth in his tummy which makes him so creepy. He should be in 1st place!

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!

I mean he is impossible He appears in both doors the bed even the closet plus if you get jump scared by him he will reset your whole game!

12 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 truly TERRIFYING! Unlike the forgettable and ugly ballerina(does that pice of ballet junk even have a name? who is laughable and not even scary, Chica is the real deal when it comes to terrifying animatronics! Chica scared me so bad that I've had nightmare's of her. I applaud the creator for creating such a terifyinand beloved character!

In FNAF AR,I REALLY wish we had gotten Artic Chica instead of that ugly piece of ballet crap.

. When your playing you can hear her playing pots and pans in the kitchen. of course afton killed her but her backstory is tragic. I know people have said this before but chica is a GIRL!

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!

13 Faceless Bonnie

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.

Ah, Withered Bonnie. The nightmares you used to give me. Now, you just look totally badass to me. He's my favorite Withered bot, and my 2nd favorite Bonnie. "My face! My beautiful face! "

When I got this I screen I didn't play fnaf for like 3 weeks IT WAS SO SCARY and I got it again and I didn't play it for another 2 hours.

Way too creepy! Though, I sometimes like to imagine what her face would be like if she had one... I vote this for number 1

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 ...read more.

Okay, okay. Yes I know same jumpscare noise as Nightmare but she got a better jumpscare in UCN (and design) so it fit the nightmare selection more.

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

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.

15 Phantom 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"

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!

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

He I think jump scares even though he does not kill you. He is scarier than sping trap so yeAh

16 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 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!

The part that makes him worse then the others is that he isn't just circus baby, he's Ballora, Funtime Freddy/foxy. He is—you. After u are scooped, right after he uses circus baby's voice to claim its for the best, man. Number five is the scariest.

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

17 Scrap Baby

Honestly Circus Baby freaked me out enough, now a SCRAP VERSION?! Scott did an awesome job in scaring me in Pizzeria Sim. it was one of the best games!

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.

I really like baby, but Scap Baby needs to leave me alone, Id how she became what she became, but I wish she could go back to being Circus Baby.

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!

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!

I looked up pics of him and played the game the guy is sooo scary! I don't know how he is just number 15! I think freddy is cute!

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

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

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

His teeth are so sharp

21 Nightmare Freddy

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 .-.

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.

He is the scariest animatronic on purpose. I have to say, Scott did a good job of making this guy give me nightmares IRL. Not even Bonnie is on his level of scariness.

22 Withered Bonnie

I'm not scared of withered bonnie I just feel sorry for him/her. R.I.P face

I mean no face is already scary but no face and no arm no scott no

23 Phantom Puppet

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.

This thing make me think twice to play fnaf three's 5th night.
It just shoves its entire head onto your screen and summons other
animatronics.

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.

24 Nightmare Chica

She can sometimes cause me to stay awake at night for this reason:

She seemingly shares a link to the boys mother in a horrible way and these are the reasons why:

She is the only Nightmare Animatronic that carries equipment (a horrific cupcake that will maul you to death) The cupcake is food, Obviously

She goes in the kitchen where food is. Now FNaF4 is a Nightmare right? Why the hell would she go in the kitchen for, (yes it's a refrence to FNaF1 I understand however)

She is also the only female animatronic in FNaF4 excluding the halloween edition.

Heres what creeps me out: The mother in FNaF4 is not present at all. Mothers in a general sense will be the one who prepares food for the family. Mothers are naturing.

Nightmare Chica to me seems to be disturbingly smart in the fact that she takes the idea of what a caring mother will do for there chilid and transforms it into a upside-down representation of the boy's mother by offering him food ...more

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...

25 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.

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!

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

Her eyes, I can't-
