“Bonnie's my name, I'm hoppin' along, floppy ears and a cotton tail! My guitar is blazin', this rabbit's "Hare"-raisin'! Just listen to me wail!”
Bonnie is a major antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy's series. Bonnie is an animatronic bunny and children's entertainer housed at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, along with Freddy Fazbear and Chica. He is the guitarist in Freddy's band, positioned at the left side of the stage. At midnight, he supposedly is left in a "free-roaming mode" until 6 AM, to prevent his servos from locking up.
Along with the other animatronics, Bonnie will try to forcefully stuff any human he sees after hours into a Freddy Fazbear suit, resulting in death.
Secretly Bonnie and the other animatronics are haunted by children murdered by a man named William Afton, him and the rest are now seeking revenge against their killer attacking anyone in the pizzeria in blind rage. However, after the closure of the pizzeria, him and the animatronics got dismantled by their killer, his soul along with the others were presumably set free as evident by the good ending.
“A bluish-purple animatronic rabbit, wears a red bow tie; plays guitar in the animatronic band.”
Bonnie is an indigo-colored animatronic bunny with blue accents, magenta eyes and a squarish muzzle. The color from his muzzle, stomach, and insides of his ears is a lavender color (white in Help Wanted), and while Bonnie appears purple in artworks and in Special Delivery, he's shown to be more dark blue than purple in most of the games where he and his counterparts appear, including FNaF World, where he is blue like his counterparts. This could indicate he was blue at one point, but got a paint job of purple under unknown circumstance, hence the blue blotches. He sports long articulated ears that are capable of bending backwards and forwards (similar to several other animatronics' ears) and wears a red bowtie with a neckstrap that is partially obstructed by his chin. Onstage, he carries a dark red guitar. Unlike the other characters, he has round teeth and lacks eyebrows.
Excluding his head, most of Bonnie's body appears identical to Freddy's, apart from the latter's color. This version of Bonnie, like most of the classic animatronics (except for Foxy), has no visible teeth on his upper jaw.
In Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, Bonnie's design remains mostly the same, but he is primarily blue, the color of his muzzle, stomach and insides of his ears is now white, and his guitar sports a different look.
In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, Bonnie's design remains the same as his original, although he is purple in color, and for realism purposes, his design receives specular reflection.
“Still a giant blue rabbit, but Withered Bonnie is missing his face.”
His older pre-rebuilt form, known as Withered Bonnie has a damaged appearance and is due to an attempted retrofit of the older animatronics that took place before they got scrapped for the newer models, such as Toy Bonnie. Like Withered Freddy, Withered Bonnie also has two buttons on his chest. His face has been gutted, with most of it being removed, revealing his endoskeleton mechanisms and dangling wires. His lower jaw remains, featuring more teeth than the original Bonnie possessed in the first game, although the jaw itself still appears to be functional as seen in his jumpscare from Help Wanted. His eyeballs are gone, exposing glowing red irises. His left arm is missing entirely, baring a tiny strip on the topmost section, with a mass of torn wires in its place. The red layering of his mouth has been removed, making his teeth seem longer than before. Withered Bonnie's right ear is mostly seen being folded, similar to a stereotypical rabbit. His suit has become tattered, particularly around the legs, and a few loose wires poke out of his body. The covering on his right hand and left foot have come off, revealing more of his endoskeleton. He also seems to have a bigger stomach, as it looks more rounded and bigger than his upper body. Also, his chin does not squash his bow tie now, and his suit seems to have changed to a darker shade of blue. Like the original Bonnie, Withered Bonnie also wears a red bowtie. Out of all the Withereds, he seems to be the most tattered, as he has no face apart from his jaw and has only one arm.
In Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, Withered Bonnie's design remains unchanged for the most part, however, the most noticeable change is that he has a darker shade of purple.
The Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Theme Song reveals Bonnie to have a personality based on a rock musician; boastful, prideful, with the speech pattern of a laid back hippie stereotype.
During the night, Bonnie is by far the most active, being usually the first one to leave the stage showing an eagerness to kill the night guard whom he thinks is his killer. He also seems to be a dirty player as one of his tactics is to go to the closet then straight to the office unexpectedly foregoing his usual route. He's also persistent but gives up quickly when he gets repelled, as in the first game, he's the animatronic that tries to attack the most, but he also doesn't take long to leave when he's shut out. His twitching and groaning in the West Hall also indicates that he is impatient. This shows a darker and taunting side of Bonnie's personality. In Ultimate Custom Night, if Bonnie is seen in Pirate's Cove when he's active, he'll damage the cameras, temporarily disabling them. This is because according to Bonnie's description for the game made by Scott Cawthon, he is upset and in a bad mood because he's forced to stay with Foxy in the Pirate Cove, which is cramped for both of them, thus, if he gets caught in peeking outside of the Pirate Cove, he'll get mad, jumpscare the player and disable the cameras for a while, showing that he hates being disturbed and cramped spaces. Since it shows that he hates cramped spaces, it further shows that he is claustrophobic.
In Ultimate Custom Night, as Withered Bonnie, he has a tendency to make face puns (in reference to the fact that his face is missing). He is also aware of the fact that he is damaged. His voice sounds pretty damaged and malfunctions frequently, as well as the ominous buzzing in the background. While Withered Bonnie enjoys making face puns and taunting the player about his scary appearance since he lacks a face, he is also shown to be quite saddened that he is the only animatronic to be missing a face, thus feeling left out and neglected, despite this, he still remains confident and even without a face, proves to himself that he is still worthy and more superior without having a face.
Normally, Bonnie is intentionally designed to perform on stage with the animatronic band, singing and playing his electric guitar. This Bonnie model, revealed in Help Wanted, also seems to have technology similar to funtime animatronics with parts that pop open and close automatically at the push of two buttons, which might also be Bonnie himself before he had a paint job due to being blue and white similar to Toy Bonnie unlike the purple and gray Bonnie with blue blotches from Five Nights at Freddy's.

- "Uh, now concerning your safety, the only real risk to you as a night watchman here, if any, is the fact that these characters, uh, if they happen to see you after hours probably won't recognize you as a person. They'll p-most likely see you as a metal endoskeleton without its costume on. Now since that's against the rules here at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, they'll probably try to...forcefully stuff you inside a Freddy Fazbear suit. Um, now, that wouldn't be so bad if the suits themselves weren't filled with crossbeams, wires, and animatronic devices, especially around the facial area. So, you could imagine how having your head forcefully pressed inside one of those could cause a bit of discomfort...and death. Uh, the only parts of you that would likely see the light of day again would be your eyeballs and teeth when they pop out the front of the mask, heh." - Phone Guy, Night 1
- "Uh, by now I'm sure you've noticed the older models sitting in the back room. Uh, those are from the previous location. We just use them for parts now. The idea at first was to repair them...uh, they even started retrofitting them with some of the newer technology, but they were just so ugly, you know? The smell...uh, so the company decided to go in a whole new direction and make them super kid-friendly. Uh, those older ones shouldn't be able to walk around, but if they do, the whole Freddy head trick should work on them too, so, whatever." - Phone Guy, Night 2
