Five Nights at Freddy's


Like Bonnie and Freddy, Chica starts the night on the Show Stage. When she leaves the Show Stage, Chica may then go to the Kitchen, Restrooms, Dining Area, and East Hall.

Her movements are somewhat random, but she always approaches from the right side. The player can activate the Hall Lights to check if she's in the blind spot.

As Chica gets closer to the Office, her jaw opens wider as she nears. Chica also seems to twitch wildly when she's at the East Hall Corner, though this only occurs on the fourth, fifth, and sixth night, as well as on the Custom Night.

She's also the only animatronic who can access the Kitchen area on the first two nights (as Freddy, who is the only other animatronic who enters the Kitchen, does not become active until the Night 3). A clashing of pots and pans will be audible, and Chica will not be visible in any other room.

Chica will generally head towards the night guard's position, similar to Bonnie, but she also wanders to the Kitchen and Restrooms. As opposed to Bonnie, Chica will show up at the door less often, but will generally linger there, waiting longer and stealing more of the player's energy, whereas Bonnie will show up more often but leave quickly.

Like the others, she becomes more aggressive as the nights progress, with the amount of time the player has to close the door before she enters decreasing.

If the player fails to check the right-side blind spot and close the door while she's at the window, she will sneak into the Office, though she cannot be seen. After she accesses the Office, the buttons to both the door and light on the right side of the Office will no longer function, but rather play an error sound when activated. Another indication that Chica has entered the Office is by listening for groaning sounds that both she and Bonnie make when waiting for the player to lower the Monitor.

During this phase, she will attack the night guard as soon as they lower the Monitor. The only way to survive the night after this occurrence is to not view the Monitor for the remainder of the night or to avoid lowering it if they're close enough to 6 AM, though Chica may still manually pull down the Monitor regardless as to whether or not the player pulls it down themselves.

On later nights, when Chica is in the East Hall Corner, her appearance becomes more erratic. Her head will twitch violently, her eyes will blink rapidly, her mouth will snap open and closed and she will emit the robotic voice sound byte regardless of whether or not the player has the Monitor focused on her.

Unlike Bonnie, who can teleport around the pizzeria, Chica can only move to adjacent rooms. This is especially noticeable with Cheat Mode enabled in the Android version.


Every 498 ticks, the game picks a random number between 1 and 20. If this number is less than or equal to Chica's AI level, she will move. Her AI will increase by 1 when the clock hits 3AM and 4AM.

The location where she goes to is randomized. Unlike Bonnie, Chica can't "skip" a camera. This could be why she usually is set to higher AI than Bonnie.

Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Classic Chica

Chica's origin is further explored in the second game, appearing as her earliest first incarnate generation by the name of Withered Chica, who have fallen into severe disrepair and was later replaced by a different counterpart Toy Chica for improvement within the different pizzeria. After the events of the second game, Withered Chica was later re-built to become her original self for the events of the first original game.

The original Chica makes a minor appearance in all four end-of-night cutscenes where she is seen standing on the left side from Freddy with the player's point of view.

Withered Chica

Like Withered Bonnie and Withered Freddy, Withered Chica is an incredibly active animatronic, as she can leave the Parts/Service room as early as 12 AM and can sneak into the Office around 3 times in an hour. Unlike in the first game, Withered Chica follows a set path. She will begin moving from Night 3 onward. Withered Chica starts with the other older animatronics in the Parts/Service room, moving to Party Room 4 and then Party Room 2 to enter the Right Air Vent. While in the Right Air Vent, as Withered Bonnie does, she completely bypasses the vent's blind spot and may enter the Office while the Monitor is pulled up.

When she is in the Office and the player lowers the Monitor, or when she forces it down, Withered Chica will stand in front of the desk as the lights constantly flicker before she vanishes. The player must immediately put on the Freddy Fazbear Head the moment they see Withered Chica to avoid imminent death. Delaying or neglecting to put the Head on will cause the screen to black out as normal, only for her to return and kill the night guard after bringing up and lowering the Monitor or taking off the Freddy Head. She may also forcibly pull down the Monitor or remove the head if left on some time after failing to ward her off. Once the player equips the head and Withered Chica leaves, she returns to Party Room 4, and her cycle repeats.

From the Custom Night, night modes where Withered Chica is active are listed as follows:

  • 20/20/20/20 (20)
  • Ladies Night (20)
  • Cupcake Challenge (5)
  • Fazbear Fever (10)
  • Golden Freddy (20)

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Chica returns in Five Nights at Freddy's 3. She is now one of the attraction props at Fazbear's Fright, along with the other animatronics. At CAM 08, her disembodied head can be seen. Her appearance does not affect gameplay, and she is only there for aesthetic purposes. Her role is majorly replaced by her phantom counterpart Phantom Chica.

Her cupcake appear as one of the minor hallucinations in the game, appearing rarely inside the Office from the desk.

Chica also makes an appearance in the end-of-night minigames. Upon completing each night, the player will be taken to a short minigame with graphics similar to old Atari gaming systems, during which they must navigate a map of the pizzeria from the first game.

On the third night, the player will play as Chica, now appearing all alone on the Show Stage. If they leave the Stage and enter any other room, they will encounter what appears to be Shadow Freddy, instructing the player to follow it. It will lead them to a room in the east side of the pizzeria, and the player will see Freddy and Bonnie's remains scattered on the floor from the previous minigames.

Shadow Freddy will enter a room which is inaccessible to the player (they will receive an "ERR" message if they try to enter it). As in the previous minigames, if they try to walk away, then Purple Guy will rush out and dismantle Chica, and the minigame ends.

During the end-of-night minigames on Night 4 and 5, Chica's remains can be seen scattered throughout the same room she was dismantled in, alongside Bonnie and Freddy's remains.

From the "Happiest Day" minigame, the one of the children at the end of the minigame is seen wearing Chica's mask.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

Like most of the other original animatronics, Chica herself does not make any major appearance in Five Nights at Freddy's 4. The plushie of her can be seen in some minigames after completing each night. The other appearance is when she appears on the TV on the Night 2 minigame, on what is either an advertisement or TV show titled "Fredbear & Friends!".

From the end-of-night minigame after completing Night 5, one of the protagonist's older brother's friends is seen wearing Chica's mask.

Rather than appearing as herself, Chica is majorly replaced with her nightmarish counterpart named Nightmare Chica. Her Cupcake is also replaced by its nightmarish variant as well.

Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location

Chica herself does not appear in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. However, a mode named "Cupcake Challenge" from the Custom Night (similar from the second game's own Custom Night) is named after Chica's Cupcake.

In Ennard's first teaser, in the source code, Chica's name is mentioned as a client called, "ChcasPrtyWrld", abbreviated for "Chica's Party World". However, in-game, there is currently no known references to anything related to this name.

Ultimate Custom Night

Chica, separately in both classic and withered form, returns in Ultimate Custom Night.

Classic Chica

Chica attacking the player, animated.

Chica resides in the Kitchen (CAM 04) and shows her presence by knocking around pots and pans. However, if the player hears nothing in the kitchen, then this means that Chica has gotten bored of the music playing, and the player must change the music. Once the music is changed, Chica will resume knocking around pots and pans to show that she's content again. She is enraged if the player changes the music too early. Once she is angered, she will leave the kitchen to jumpscare the player, bypassing the hallway and security door.

Alternatively, Chica can be soothed using the Global Music Box, but this puts a substantial drain on the player's power supply. If it's necessary to rely on this music box, she can be handled by turning the box on after twelve seconds, and turning it off after eighteen seconds, supplemented by other power saving methods. She is specifically calmed by a shorter pulse, but it is better to use the described pattern.

The challenges in which Chica is present are as follows:

  • Ladies Night 1 (5)
  • Ladies Night 2 (5)
  • Ladies Night 3 (10)
  • Old Friends (20)

Withered Chica

Like few other animatronics, Withered Chica will climb into the Air Vents to sneak into the Office. She can be fended off by activating the right vent snare, which she will always go through. However, if Withered Chica manages to bypass the Vent system, she'll end up getting stuck at the vent door. Eventually, Withered Chica may wiggle free and jumpscare the player if they pull up their Monitor. She can be sent away by the vent door as well.

The challenges in which Withered Chica is present are as follows:

  • Ladies Night 1 (5)
  • Ladies Night 2 (10)
  • Ladies Night 3 (20)
  • Creepy Crawlies 1 (5)
  • Creepy Crawlies 2 (20)
  • Chaos 3 (5)

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

Chica herself returns as one of the antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. She appears in all levels in FNAF 1 section as well as Repair Chica in Parts and Service section.


Chica attacking the player, animated.

Chica appears on the Show Stage in every night available. When she leaves the Show Stage, Chica may then go to the Kitchen, Restrooms, Dining Area, and East Hall.

Her movements are somewhat random, but she always approaches from the right side. The player can activate the Hall Lights to check her in the blind spot. If she's at the window, the door must be closed to prevent her entry, or else she will jumpscare the player.

Parts and Service

In Repair Chica, the player must first remove the pizza slices from her body and throw them in the trash bin, then press the buttons on the side of her mask to check for anything in her beak. Once her beak is opened, it is revealed that Chica's infested with cockroaches, which the player must remove using the chemispray. Once the cockroaches are removed, the player must put her arm, hand and cupcake back on, after which more cockroaches appear, which must be removed once again with the chemispray. After using the chemispray for the second time, the cupcake will hop off it's tray and move around the room, and it's up to the player to return it to it's rightful spot. Once the cupcake has been returned, the player finishes by eating a complimentary slice of pizza. Messing up the instructions in any way results in a jumpscare from Chica.

Night Terrors

Chica appears in the Pizza Party level, in a room resembling the Kitchen. The player goes here to select their preferred pizza for their party, but Chica will continuously walk into the room to eat slices from a pizza in the same room. When Chica runs out of pizza to eat, she will jumpscare the player upon her next visit to the room if they don't leave it.


Withered Chica attacking the player, animated.

Withered Chica returns in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, as one of the numerous antagonists in the Withered Level for the Hard Mode of FNAF2. Her behavior remains the same as in the original Five Nights at Freddy's 2; The player must wear the Freddy Fazbear Mask to ward her off when she enters the Office, or else she will attack them.

Trick or Treat

Withered Chica also appears in the Trick or Treat level from the Curse of Dreadbear DLC, along with the rest of the withered animatronics, Mangle, and BB, where she is one of the possible animatronics that can answer the door. If she is the animatronic that answers the door, the player must wear the Chica mask or else she will jumpscare them.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery


Chica attacking the Player, animated.

Chica returns in Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery as one of the many antagonists. Chica acts incredibly similar to Bonnie, as they do in most games they both appear in. She will make moaning noises at the start identical to Bonnie's, and then footsteps will be heard and static will be visible. Chica will eventually rush at the player from where the static presides from most. While Chica does not have any unique noises as she shares hers with some of Bonnie's, she is easily given away by the second pair of glowing eyes belonging to her Cupcake that are visible while she is rushing. She, like all the other animatronics, can only be attacked once she fully uncloaks. Chica is also noticeably easier than Bonnie when stalking the player, with less frequent haywires.
