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 cold empty eyes, smile, tears, make him the scariest. Did I mention whenever the music starts going I close out of the game and start a new night

Most people believe (and so do I) that the crying child in the Five nights at Freddy's 4 mini game became of the blue streaks, which people think represent the tear marks. Sounds good enough to me.

Pop! Goes the weasel= bad news

He's allways thinking and can get you if you forget the music box

2 Bonnie The Bunny Bonnie The Bunny

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.

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?

In the First FNAF Bonnie is scary mainly because of it's lack of eyebrows, but in the second game, the lack of the entire face is what makes Bonnie not as scary as say, Freddy (because that's who scares me most in the second game) I would like to imagine who Bonnie would look like if he had an actual face, probably a lot scarier than the original or the toy.

3 Foxy the Fox Foxy the Fox

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...

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. - TheCoolMinecraftApoclypse

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! God damn it, some of you are dumb!

Are you kidding me he is SO easy to find just look where he is and it is empty just shut the door

4 Golden Freddy Golden Freddy

Golden Freddy, you have to wear a mask. He can teleport in your office and he just stands there for like 4 seconds! It is said that if you see him, put on your mask/ look at the camera because he will go away. Oh yea, & when he attacks you, he crashes the game!

I think he is, by far, the scariest character in the first game. His dead-eyed appearance and the way he just appears in your office is really unnerving, and then that terrible distorted roaring sound when he's all up in your face...

Yeah, the way he appears in your office is terrifying. Especially because none of the other characters does that. (Except when they attack you) - timelordgaia

Golden Freddy not only crashes the game but he has the most terrifying laugh. You know why? Because he's possessed by the crying boy he chummed on in the "87 Bite". He's a rich and creepy character.

5 Mangle Mangle Mangle is a character from Five Nights at Freddy's. She has a yellow eye and a black eye. She 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.

It's basically a messed up spider. I hate spiders. The simple fact that they can go on walls, and possibly drop down onto your head terrifies me. And the only ruminants of his original body is its face, and it has the extra head!

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.

I mean she can climb, but other anamatronic can. She just so creepy.

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.

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? Who the hell wrote this?

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.

He is scary probably one of the scariest

7 Chica the Chicken

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!

Every way you find. Chica she always looks terrifying, when she's looking through the office window, when she's looking up at the cam, when she has her head tilted to the side, when she's standing in the dining hall, and her jumpscare... Just how here heads sways back and fourth, it's horrifying! Something about how her jaw is always wide open!

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.

Why is Chica only No.8? She terrified me when I played the game. I was at 4am, and I heard her moan (I didn't know what this meant back then). Then I was jumpscared by the cross-eyed, million-mile staring chicken. I fell out of my chair. After beating the game and suffering about ten more heart attacks from her jumpscare, I never touched the game again.

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 $&@*%#?!

The eyes are the ones that get me. He is going into your soul it seems like

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

9 Spring Trap

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

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.

My least favourite part about his appearance is his gruesome humanoid appearance. With the Purple Guy's flesh under all that, it was disgusting to see him take his head off.

When he like made a creepy noise he is trying to say '
help me'

10 Phantom Foxy

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!

Poor Foxy but I still want to hug him.

I love foxy but I hate phantom foxy its his look in cam 08

The Contenders

11 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! "

Is faceless bonnie and old bonnie both wither bonnie? please reply!

Withered Bonnie is not trying to strangle you, HE IS TRYING TO RIP YOUR FACE OFF AND USE IT FOR HIMSELF!

12 Withered Chica

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. - SwiftFox777

Her oversized eye sockets and lack of eyebrows make her worse than faceless Bonnie. And the way she stares into your soul makes it seem like she knows what you're thinking and that you're looking at her.

She has like two sets of teeth which I find very creepy and I don't like the way she stands over you with her arms out. I think she's terrifying!

Hans? jaw? hey I thought I told you to get lost in the first game by that I mean of how scary she is!

13 Nightmare Fredbear Nightmare Fredbear

I wouldn't mess this guy if I were you. He seems like he's working with death itself. Be careful of him, for he could end your life in a second. Very scary and awesome!

Those 3 rows of teeth are so creepy! When he gets you, it's almost always a sneak attack!

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.

He is so scary. I think it may be because of his sharp teeth and his features. Nightmare Fredbear would give me tons of nightmares. Nightmare Fredbear brings fnaf to a whole differnt level of horror

14 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.

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

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

15 Nightmare Freddy Nightmare Freddy

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

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!

The Games Out Dude

Literally, look at his face(es)! He is a beastly killer and will smash your face! 🐻🐻🐻

16 Nightmare Chica 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

Very well-said. I definitely agree with your views, and it really is disturbing seeing a formerly, seemingly welcoming and hospitable character/persona being twisted into such a horror. - SwiftFox777

17 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

Why is Purple Man even on this list? I love him so much! He looks so cute in the fandom!

Actually some of you do not know that purple guy has a son. His son is the crying child

Why the F@$# 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!

18 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

19 Nightmare Foxy Nightmare Foxy

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.

All those sharp, and pointy teeth. RETURN TO A PLUSHY!

He's so terrifying. The original foxy may be my favorite but the nightmare version is SCARY!

I love his pointy feet
