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 Puppet

He is the best five night at freddy character

The puppet looks like a paralysis demon that just came out of my own nightmares

This is basically all my nightmares put into a game

Scary as heck heck you puppet heck you

2 Bonnie The Bunny 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 is so scary! Especially Withered Bonnie

Listen to David Near's voice of him, you'll get nightmares for weeks.

Because he can tellaport.

If Bonnie can scare his OWN creator and give him nightmares, then he really deserves being on of the top 5. Like, literally he SHOULD be #1!

3 Foxy the Fox 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.

Only thing scary about him is his mechanic

This guy isn't scary at all. After you experience his jumpscare a hundred times, he's easily the least scariest. - LilRose

I like him, but he's the least scariest - bobthehallwayman

Foxy is the scariest because when you are playing and you look at pirates cove and he is gone then you flip over and see him coming that is pretty scary and I think others agree

4 Mangle 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.

How can it not be the scariest with a name like that?

She has a very nice jumpscare

She is scarier then Puppet and Foxy, but it's kinda easy to keep her at bay. - LilRose

Spider fox spider fox
Does whatever a spider fox can
Has wires, That fling around
Catches night guards- just like flies
Look out! Here comes spider fox.

5 Golden Freddy Golden Freddy

He crashes Your game.
That's uncool

It true he scary boy

Golden Freddy is super creepy!

Not scary at all. - LilRose

6 Freddy the Fazbear Freddy the 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.

Freddy the Fazbear?

I like the character and when he laughs I know he's coming unlike all the other stage animatronic HE SKIPS THE DOOR WAY making he's jumpscare more frightful because your gonna think he's gonna wait there but no

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!

Freddy the Fazbear-this world is going downhill faster than my grades

7 Spring Trap Spring Trap

Tell me why a dead man inside of a breaking up suit, being clutched by spring locks isn't scary...

I think he's cool

He should get a higher rating

Almost peed my pants when I saw him

8 Chica the Chicken

Chica just gives me goosebumps and I don't know even why..

Not as scary as the others in terms of design, but her glares and her backstory makes her creepy. - LilRose

Chica requires no explanation. She is pretty much the only one who has jumpscared me in 1 and 4, and she drives me INSANE. The faces she makes at you just scares me almost to death. If she was real, I would never leave my house again. - GameTheorist

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!

9 Phantom BB

What. He isn't scary at all. - LilRose

This should be lower. - SackofCheese

Not really - Mefty

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 $&@*%#?!

10 Withered Chica Withered Chica

How is normal chica scarier the Withered Chica! I love Withered Chica's design and think she is super scary!

Out of all the animatronics, withered chica is one of the scariest, if not the scariest! Her crooked jaw and the fact she has no eyebrows (like bonnie) is pure nightmare material

Normal Chica was scary enough, but Withered Chica is terrifying!

Nah but she will stare into your soul - Mefty


The Contenders

11 Faceless Bonnie

Pretty creepy. - LilRose

At first when I played the game, I saw withered bonnie in a corner (or something I forgot) I thought it was just a broken suit so I stared at it because it was so scary. GUESS WHAT BUNNY DID. Now he's one of my least concerns.

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! "

12 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.

Not that scary but should be number one

It kinda feels like Scott tried too hard with Fnaf 4. The animatronics in my opinion look largely exaggerated and unrealistic, not making it very scary. - LilRose

His jumps are still scares me

Simply the scariest

13 Phantom Foxy Phantom Foxy

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

Yeah nah - Mefty

His jumpscare kinda scres me

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!

14 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.

All his powers and general appearence, combined with the fact he's invisible to cameras make him the scariest animatronic to face

He is the coolies charter in fnaf

He is Nightmare.

See Fredbear above. - LilRose

15 Purple Man

To be honest ALL of the animatronics including purple guy are scary

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. - LilRose

I mean he kills kids nothing else to say...

Uhh, killer that KILLS kids by STABBING them in the FIRST game and KILLING HENRY'S DAUGHTER in the RAIN at NIGHT?! Yeah, so scary.

16 Withered Foxy Withered Foxy

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

Yeah instead of leaning in like "Hey! What cha doing? Can I kill you please?! ", he flies into like "GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE BECAUSE YOU KILLED UP AND WE AIN'T TAKIN IT! NOW SHUT UP AND DIE PLEASE! MOVE OUT OF MY WAY CHICA AND LET ME KILL HIM NOW! ". - Withered Foxy

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

Never seen him

17 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.



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. - LilRose

I love Puppet but Nightmarionne is creepier. Just look at that face. That body. It looks like something out of r/nosleep

18 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.

This guy-
I don't even know

"Can the scooper scoop your insides out while I watch you cry in pain? "
says Ennard. "Nope. Be gone foul beast..." says me

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

i agree

19 Scrap Baby Scrap 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!

This is just simply scary

SCARIEST AND BEST IN THE WHOLE FNAF SERIES IN MY OPINION! Her salvage is SO creepy, her desighn is creepy, and she even murders children! Not lying, actually only animatronic who give me nightmare.
Honorable mentions:
-Phantom marionette
-Freddy Fazbear
-Nightmare Bonnie

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. - LilRose

20 Phantom Puppet

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

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.

To be honest I've never seen phantom puppet but I love puppet (not phantom)

I agree

21 Nightmare Freddy Nightmare Freddy

-Yawn- - LilRose

Hell nah - Mefty

The Games Out Dude

Like golden freddy, but with teeth everywhere. Nightmare fuel!

22 Withered Bonnie Withered Bonnie

This guy gave my brother nightmares

Dude y was FACELESS bonnie here earlier when they r the exact same - Mefty

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

He looks scarier WITH his face

23 Phantom Chica

Her head looks like a watermelon

Not scary - LilRose

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

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.

24 Nightmare Chica Nightmare Chica

None of the Fnaf 4 animatronics are scary. - LilRose

Molten freddy has multiple rows of teeth... - Mefty

25 Plushtrap Plushtrap Plushtrap is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4. He is the plush version of Springtrap and the first antagonist who appears in his own minigame, "Fun with Plushtrap", the second being Nightmare Balloon Boy, and does not make appearances elsewhere (other than the after-night minigames).

No. Just no, - LilRose

Plushtrap: I am coming for you

You: Please No...

Plushtrap: *jumpscare*

He's a version of chucky, I mean, hand him a knife and it would be complete

YAY - leepee

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

I SEE YOU OVER THERE IN THE DARK. Yea, no begone foul beast. His voice was never designed to be presented to children.


Mr funny guy

27 Toy Bonnie 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.

At day he has normal iris, but in night he's smiling becuse nothing and have a freaky eyes.

Y is he on the scary list - Mefty

He should be number 3 cause when saw him and played this I can't look at dolls anymore because of him I put in bin in my closet. When see dolls they make me think of him THANKS FOR RUINING MY CHILDHOOD TOY BONNIE

Think of the cutest thing in your childhood. A pet hamster, a teddy bear, your baby cousin... Now imagine them coming to life and trying to turn your veins into guitar strings. Now you see why Toy Bonnie's on this list?

28 Marionette Marionette

Puppet marionette THE SAME THING - Mefty

She is the best

29 Eyeless Bonnie


If you see this rare start up or game over screen happen. Your heart will go so fast

This one actually scares me. Luckily, it's rare, and it's just an Easter Egg. Eyeless Bonnie is the normal Bonnie(you know, the less weird looking ones, purple fur), but has black eyes, that cover some parts other then his face.

Yep I always listen to slipknot eyes while playing this and I see eyeless bonnie well guess what you can't see California without marlon brandos eyes

30 Nightmare Foxy Nightmare Foxy Nightmare Foxy is a character who appears in FNaF 4 on Night 3. Nightmare Foxy runs down the hall and sneaks in through your slightly opened door and hides in the closet, at least until you close the closet door for long enough.

His tongue looks like a worm.CREEPY

I honestly think that he is the coolest except for when he is in the closet and just stares at you and I like him and hate him at the same time.

The first time I see him “AwW hEll tO tHE NaW”

This version of Foxy wasn't all that disturbing to me until I found a fan made script of something he might say. Something along the lines of "You will feel pain and suffering for the rest of your pathetic life... both seconds of it." Creepy.

31 Molten Freddy Molten Freddy

I only like him because Funtime Freddy is my favorite. He's not that cool, but I love his voice

Should be on number 1 but I like him though

I did a quiz on which FFPS character I
am and I always got molten freddy

Dear god, the fact that he moves around without much of an endoskeleton is just, HOW

32 Nightmare Golden Freddy

Not a thing its nightmare fredbear who was already in the list - Mefty

*Nightmare Fredbear

His name is Nightmare Fredbear.

Seriously why is he not in the list
He a fast basterd and he will get you no matter what
Have you seen him

33 Ballora 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.

I love Ballora's song, Dance to forget, but I don't think she's all that creepy, except when she opens her face plates and acts like a spider...

It's so scary when you crawl through the ballora gallery and when you see the light of the door you see ballora's legs go past. Oh, and her jumpscare is pretty terrifying as well.

, ballora is the only fnaf character I find at least a bit creepy

Probably the creepiest she littaeraly creeps the @&$&$#%out of me

34 Nightmare Mangle Nightmare Mangle

...I have to say, Mangle is creepy enough for me (mainly if u know that the backstory) but NIGHTMARE?! With, like, a gazillion TEETH? Dear God, I'm never sleeping again

35 Golden Bonnie

Golden bonnie is spring bonnie but he is actually purple guy is disguise so just keep away from him the picture though is cute no creepy

*looks up golden bonnie and looks at first photo* HOLY F*:" that's CUTE - Mefty

My theory
Golden Bonnie=Springtrap=Purple Guy
Gloden Freddy=Pink Guy

I actually think this dude is cute. Why? Search up "Golden Bonnie," and look at the first photo. He's adorable! I mean, his Heidi's barely off his's just ' adorable. Love you, Springy!

36 Shadow Bonnie Shadow Bonnie Shadow Bonnie is a minor antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. She rarely appears in the office and crashes the game. She is a black, silhouetted version of Toy Bonnie with white eyes and teeth.

There is just something so uncanny about his features

Shadow Bonnie is the scariest for me because of the lack of defining facial and bodily features. I mean, she only has eyes and a mouth, which are colored bright white (lots of contrast). When you're looking around in a dark place, she can appear ANYWHERE.

In five nights at Freddy's 3 if you are playing on a iPhone once you finish the fourth night you play as shadow Bonnie and when you move you twitch which freaked me out so bad

The only one who has ever given me nightmares!

37 Withered Freddy

Comp chomp - Mefty

He bites at your face... I guess if you were actually there as the night guard and not just playing a game where you are a night guard, he'd be scary... I'm not sure

Is it just me or does withered Freddy look exactly the same as the original with a few scars?

I guess he's a little creepy...

38 Phantom Freddy Phantom Freddy

He lost his right leg - Mefty

H-He Has No Pupils... And he Sometimes Says ItS Meee. It's so Creepy Kept Me Awake For 12 Hours

If you see him scream ALLAHU ACKBAR and close the game

Not that scary cause he is easy to ebade just pull up the cameras and my cosin noticed the way he walks across the window thing... Its just weird

39 Fan

Lets be honest, none of these animatronics are scary, and this is just dumb. long live fan though - Brendon_Urie

Just. Fan.

THIS KILLS ME! it is more dangerous than any of the animatronics cause it is more common using up all your power than getting jumpscared.

So much scarier than ghost freddy it's so scary its... oh its only a fan

40 Nightmare Balloon Boy Nightmare Balloon Boy

His teeth are so sharp

I love nightmare BB

It's a fu27ing old man, due to his long,and old fingers.

He's somewat scarupy I mean the fingers LOOK ATT RHE FINGERZZZ - Mefty

41 Funtime Foxy Funtime Foxy

Hey you said she, yay

She (just triggered a bunch of people) is the only one that actually scared the living daylights out of me. That opera singing bastard is terrifying! Oh and she said girls can wear bow ties. Just to let you know.

The jumpscare is horrorfying

She’s (I TRIGGED YA, HAH! ) so scary, I love her! Her jumpscare is so scary, I hate it when I go in her room! When she jumscares me, I don’t play the game again for a while due to nightmares,

42 Jeremy Fitzgerald Jeremy Fitzgerald

For those idiots who don't know who jeremy is HE IS U IN FNAF TWO AND THAT RHYMEZ BOI - Mefty

no way

Again, he is a night guard, and you can't see his body.

Who the hell is that guy?!

43 Nightmare Cupcake (FNAF 4)

It's actually hilarious- the Bite victims is afraid of a cupcake.

Food has offically turned the tables now

44 Circus Baby Circus Baby

Shes so beautiful.

Me and my sister love circus baby and if you get killed you her badybabs giggles and I get saerd esuly and do not mined the bad at spelling

He destroyed other animatronics and killed night guard to kill more and more as purple guy

She doesn't even have one

45 Phone Guy

Thank you a fnafer that gets it but its not a tazer its prolly just his hand - Mefty

Phone Guy is NOT Purple Guy for heavens sake. The theory is not true, the thing Purple Guy has in his hand is NOT a phone. It doesn't even have a cord attached to dial buttons.

The thing in Purple Guy's hand could be a taser, because in the mini game when you make contact with him, the screen turns blue, and you shut down. Probably because the shock from the taser does it.

And Purple Guy is a police man, so he can carry the taser around with him. Phone Guy probably would not have a one. If you don't believe me, you should search YouTube for the theory.

The man we all trust could be leading us to our doom and we don't even know it. Never trust someone you can't see.

He murdered the Marionette when it was a kid. The phone guy is the purple guy

46 Nightmare Bonnie Nightmare Bonnie Nightmare Bonnie 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 nightmarish incarnation of Bonnie.

He is very scary and sometimes he doesn't breath at all

The animatronic that kills me the most... I one was at the door, and I didn't hear breathing, so I shone the light, and just as I shone it Bonnie started breathing and killed me. I had my volume very high as well.

48 Ghost Freddy
