“I don't recognize you. You are new. I remember this scenario, however. It's a strange thing to want to do, to come here. I'm curious what events will lead a person to want to spend their nights in a place like this willingly. Maybe curiosity, maybe ignorance. There is a space under the desk, someone before you crafted it into a hiding place and it worked for him. I recommend that you hurry though. You will be safe there, just try not to make eye contact, it will be over soon. They will lose interest.”
Circus Baby (commonly referred to as Baby) is a major antagonist and an animatronic mascot of Circus Baby's Pizza World invented by Afton Robotics, LLC. The child that haunts Baby is Elizabeth Afton who was the daughter of the franchise's main antagonist William Afton.
“Similar to a circus clown with red hair in ponytails, rosy cheeks, and bright green eyes; wears a red skirt and cropped top with frills on the shoulders.”
Baby is a female animatronic with an overall appearance reminiscent of a clown. She has auburn hair in high pigtails on either side of her head, held in place by blue hair elastics. She has bright green eyes, long, blue eyelashes, and short, blue eyebrows. The sides of her eyes are also covered in blue. Her mouth is opened in a wide smile, revealing small, flat endoskeleton teeth, framed by thin, red lips. Her cheeks are large, round, and red, and her squarish nose is red and slightly upturned and pointed. Her midsection is exposed, revealing a metal fan surrounded by an orange triangle with rounded points. Her limbs have silver segments in rectangular shapes, and her hands have red palms. The tips of her fingers, which appear to be ball-jointed, are not sealed, revealing shiny silver underneath, similar to the springlock suits. Her knees have round, shiny, silver caps, and parts of her limbs have what appear to be blue pins sticking out of them. She wears a red crop top with frills on the shoulders, and a matching, frilly, red skirt (which was changed in design for Special Delivery). The toes of her matching red shoes are pointed and curled, white on the bottom, and topped off with shiny, gold orbs (possibly bells); these are the shoes worn by a jester. Under her skirt, she wears red and orange striped panties; this can only be seen through the error of one of her images in the game file. She holds an orange microphone with red accents in her left hand.
Like all the animatronics in game, her body is made of segmented plates, which can move freely or in unison, with a few exceptions; some plates are static and "float". The only known plates that can move are her face and left arm.
In Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, Baby's design remains nearly identical, and is mostly unchanged.
In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, Baby's design remains the same as her original, however for realism purposes, her design receives specular refection. Also, her skirt receives a redesign.
“Compared to the Circus Baby of Sister Location, Scrap Baby has orange, silver, and red pigtails with more realistic strands of hair, along with a new outfit that includes coiled sleeves on her arms. Scrap Baby's face and chest expose her wiring and her right hand has been replaced with a claw that was once inside her stomach.”
As Scrap Baby, she bears an entirely new design as the result of haphazardly reassembling herself after events that occurred between games. She retains her hair and curvy pigtails, but consists of realistic, multicolored strands of wires that look like hair. On top of her head is a strange, metallic object similar to a crown. Parts of her face and lips are losing their color, turning into a light blue. The bottom part of her mouth is split to form a jaw, which doesn't seem to move in-game. Her most distinctive feature is a giant claw that replaces her right hand. The claw comes from her chest which was used to kill children. It is linked from several wires and has two "rows" of teeth. The rest of her deteriorating body reveals a unique endoskeleton. Her chest has two dead lights that are similar to the lights from the Circus Control room from the previous game, one overlapping while the other hiding behind. Her arms and legs aren't completely a white color, rather than mixtures of red and orange, as if it was clothing. Rather than Circus Baby's jester shoes, Scrap Baby has mechanical roller skates. Most of these features are not entirely revealed and are only seen in special events.
Baby speaks in a soft, lilting voice that almost never raises above a sort of hushed tone. She tends to become distracted by the thought of children, changing tones slightly when using the word.
The Circus Baby minigame shows that Baby killed William Afton's daughter Elizabeth due to her programming, her spirit then began to inhabit the animatronic. She seems to be very distraught, confused, and sorrowful due to her situation, while showing to be cunning, manipulative and theatrical traits she shares with her father as she masterminded the events of the entire game making Michael trust her and cause him to fall into multiple traps which led to his demise and reanimation, she even was resourceful enough to rebuild her self from pieces of scrap after being ejected from Ennard although she may have some love and compassion towards her family as she told her brother Michael that the scooper only hurts for a moment to ensure that his death would be mostly painless, afterwards she reassured and comforted Michael that he would not die. She also often talks about things that have little bearings on the current situation like ice cream, birthday cakes, playing pretend and other children showing that she maintains her child like mentality that she had as human, this is especially seen during Night 4, she can also be somewhat rude and arrogant as during that same night she calls Michael a dummy for not realizing the purpose of the scooper. She also is shown to be abusive towards her allies as she bossed around the other Funtime animatronics unfairly to the point were they betrayed her and ejected her from Ennard for her actions. In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, it is hinted through her vocalizations that she only raises her voice whenever pushed over the edge.
It's implied that the time she spent in the underground facility being isolated and tortured may have drove Baby to the point of insanity and caused her to be emotionally and mentally unstable, in her scrap form her mental state worsened as she is more violent, sadistic, and aggressive, obsessed with earning the favor of her father and creator William.
Circus Baby, according to her blueprint, has several capabilities, including:
- Air Hose Attachment: Using finger tips for inflating balloons.
- Internal Ice Cream Dispenser: Located within her fan-like navel, it dispenses ice cream.
- Song Databank: With the ability to sing, she can even accept song requests via the human's command.
- Emergency Stop: Has a kill switch located from her shins somewhere, used for shutting Circus Baby off when possibly in emergency mode.
- Machine Claw: A large mechanical claw is located inside her stomach, and can use it to grab the approaching victim. According to The Freddy Files: Updated Edition, the claw replacing Scrap Baby's arm is the same as the claw in Baby's stomach. How she exactly opens her stomach to summon the claw is unconfirmed. Based on one of her voice lines, her claw activates when there is only one person in the room, and when that person is close enough.
