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

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.

Technicacally not an Animatronic . She didn't really scare me when She jump scares me. The only Reason I voted was because When she Sticks out of the music box I legit Pee my self. And when she's about to jumpscare you her " Pop Goes The Weasel" song plays and I cry. He jump scare isn't Thant scary To me Because I'm already scared dof the music to I can Already expect it .

Puppet is my favorite character. And I know
How she died. People claim when she was locked outside for a prank from the other kids, Purple guy came up and stabbed her outside the building and put her near the trash. And Puppet without the soul came to save her but was too late and got ruined since Puppet was a animatronic too.

Puppet is my least favorite character mostly is how scary he is. In the 2 game, he is super annoying because of his music box and his face is just weird. In the 3 game, when he jumpscares you, he just stares at you for a long time. In the 4 game, he has a creepy smile and death screen, plus he looks so creepy.

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.

He is, absolutely one of the most scary. He has no eyebrows and his mouth just scares me alone. He could be cute, I guess, but he still is scary,

Bonnie gave his creator nightmares. Bonnie is the most active, most stressful antagonist in the game. Bonnie goes through the west hall, the scariest camera in the game. Bonnie's jumpscare is probably the best in the game (except maybe freddy...). Bonnie. Is. Terrifying.

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.

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.

"... and fangirls are obsessed with me to the point where it's scary please send help I'm not OK."there's the proof that fan girls are a little to obsessed with him.From the every foxy in a nutshell.

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!

4 Golden Freddy

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.

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 is the scariest in FNaF 2 because of his jumpscare scarier than other jumpscares. The thing that adds to his jumpscare to make it more scarier is his shouting voice during the jumpscare. That freaks me OUT! Every time I see him in the hallway or in the office, I just off my PC! Sometimes I just want to break my laptop when he jumpscares. (I almost did that a few times). And also my theory about Golden Freddy is Fredbear from Fredbear's Family Diner and he caused The Bite of 87'

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.

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.

Imagine her leaping down on you right now! I love mangle, she is my favorite, but she is also pretty creepy. I think she caused the bite of 87.

When I was little, I was really into Mangle but also was scared at the same time, now it isn't scary to me. FNaF 2 is my favorite FNaF game to this day!

So not many people know this but Mangle is a broken Funtime Foxy there's proof in the song "When the curtain falls" and is a good song anyways.

Mangle is my favorite character out of franchise but look at her she is all mangled up.she climbs on the ceiling like a spider and every day she is there toddlers rip her apart into pieces. look at her she looks so scary with her eyeball missing and has a extra head. I feel bad for mangle because she is big pile of mess and no one wants to fix her so she is just forgotten by other animatronics just go and listen to the mangle song you will understand plus MANGLE IS A FEMALE!

6 Spring Trap

I had to cover the screen for this dude...I mean I feel bad for him...think of this your oldest son killing your youngest son...then your daughter dies shortly after...she didn't listen and died...then you kill your wife through anger...and send you oldest to work ...out of more anger you kill kids and when going back to free their souls...they kill you in the process...your in that suit for thirty years and so on...That's the theory that I believe...UwU

Springtrap is the king of jumpscares in FNAF 3. It is the only time you forget he is in your office and before the next thing, he screams in your face at a sudden moment. And Springtrap is not like a cute bunny or bear, he is just a rotting corpse for the purple guy.

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.

How the hell is he 7th? This is william afton in a animatronic suit who reappears in almost every game in pizzeria simulator he's litterally super worn down.

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's possessed jumpscare freaks me out the most. That laugh he does proves that he's possessed by a little girl. Of you talk a little girls giggle and slow it down it sounds exactly like Freddys laugh! So creepy

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 Chica the Chicken

She may not be my favorite but she is downright TERRIFYING! How can nobody see this? She is awful! She is nothing like a chicken. She has a big bulky body and has two sets of teeth. Her beak scares me. And her eyes are nightmares alone.

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.

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!

9 Phantom BB

Phantom BB Is Creepy By Running At You Like Withered Foxy, Kinda. Well Also His Eyes are Like Glowing white With His Creepy Smile

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

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

10 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.

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.

He,s s nightmare Golden freddy. I like him he one of Them I Best like. But he are just like Chris from fnwmt he came from all ways in to you

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.

This guy isn't just terrifying; he's intimidating. Whereas the rest haunt your dreams, Nightmare Fredbear looks like someone you DON'T wanna run into in a dark alley, let alone your bedroom. My favorite Nightmare Animatronic, and my 4th favorite overall.

The Contenders

11 Withered Chica

12!? Chica is so sweet and innocent at daytime, handing out cupcakes and being nice. At night time, she is much creepier, and this time, she is trying to kill you! Withered Chica is much worse. SHE IS THE CREEPIEST CHICA EVER! She is also number five of ALL animatronics on my list. Those oversized eye sockets complemented by the lack of eyebrows make her look she came straight from the grave.
She is terrifying. Those two sets of teeth don't just peck, they shred. I could see her in the top 5

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!

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

. I legit had nightmares about Withered Chica. The thing that makes her so great is her backstory that she obtained from Fnaf 1, and then her coming back even scarier then before to lunge at your face with three rows of razor sharp teeth. Hands down the scariest Withered animatronic for me.

12 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.

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.

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! "

Don't worry, they say, his jumpscare isn't that freaky, they say. First time I saw him, I exited the app, deleted it and just took a walk outside. don't MAKE THAT NO FACE AT ME, BONNIE!

13 Nightmare Nightmare is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 and one of the seven nightmare animatronics (ten if the Halloween Edition animatronics and Plushtrap are counted) in the game. He is the shadowy incarnation of Nightmare Fredbear, and the final antagonist in the game.

It is just so creepy when he shows up to your door and I was like oh jeez that is just terrifying. Just the way Nightmare stares at you.

He's so scary one time I had a nightmare of him chasing me he was like Giant and there was also a giant spider chasing me and I was in a forest with tons of dead trees just running away from it and the whole forest was Gray

Nightmare is the boss of all the animatronics and he,kinda looks like a ghost and Black his design is the blackest like shadow bonnie

Nightmare is similar to G freddy and the same model as nightmare fredbear, why can't he be scarier than Golden Freddy from the second game. He's my 2nd favorite in my opinion before bonnie

14 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.

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

15 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.

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.

I think she is pretty much an anagram of puppet and nightmare... nightmare as an animatronic wasn't really scary but puppet was and "a shadow of your creation" best ucn line ever!

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.

Really long arms and the face is scary, but the Marionette is my favourite and is so cute, but NightMarionne is the opposite.

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 more.

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.

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!

He stole circus baby’s voice and hides behind her during parts and service and people claim he is Ballora and you can see him in the scooping room if you look closely through the window

17 Scrap Baby

As if original baby wasn’t enough, we have scrap baby. She is just awful. Downright frightening. I have no idea about her history or where she came form but I don’t care. She is the stuff of nightmares.

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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

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 jump in my rack like he means bizness

20 Nightmare Balloon Boy

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

His big teeth and how many he has just scares me

Oh no Timmy got eaten Oh no

His teeth are so sharp

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.

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.

Ik the game hasn't come out yet, but LOOK AT HIM! Several heads, sharp pointy teeth, and his eyes shudders

22 Withered Bonnie

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

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

This guy gave my brother nightmares

I think he's scary because he has a rusty face and his jumpscar can be deserbing

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

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

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

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

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.

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 head looks like a watermelon
