So remember, these characters hold a special place in the hearts of children and we need to show them a little respect, right? Okay.
Phone Guy, Five Nights at Freddy's

The classic animatronics are the robot entertainers of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and the very first animatronics to be introduced in the Five Nights at Freddy's series. The group consists of the big four: Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken and Foxy the Pirate Fox. They seem to have been designed and created by Fazbear Entertainment, Inc.'s co-founder Henry Emily.

The animatronics originally appeared in the first game as the main antagonists, then returned in Five Nights at Freddy's 2 as pre-rebuilt iterations referred to as withered animatronics. While appearing in Five Nights at Freddy's 3, Five Nights at Freddy's 4, Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator and Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach as cameos, they returned in Ultimate Custom Night, Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted and Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery.

Physical Appearance

The classic animatronics use very simple designs, with suits made of fabric and filled with crossbeams, wires and other animatronic parts placed on metal endoskeletons. Giving the impression of cartoon animals, they wear accessories and have four fingers per hand. They also have a single set of teeth on the lower jaw, with the exception of Foxy, who also has teeth on the upper jaw. Said teeth are square in the cases of Freddy and Chica, but are round for Bonnie and sharp and triangular for Foxy.

Functionality

Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy from the survival poster.

In the first game, the animatronics supposedly wander the pizzeria after-hours in a "free-roaming mode" (due to their servos apparently locking up if they stay in place for too long) and sometimes coming after people such as Mike Schmidt, confirmed by Phone Guy during his call on Night 1.

Because the security guard is at the establishment after business hours, the animatronics won't recognize him as a human; rather, they will think the player is simply an endoskeleton without a costume on. As this is against the rules, they will attempt to forcefully stuff the player into an animatronic suit (despite this, the animatronics often pass the endoskeleton Backstage and make no attempt to stuff it inside a suit, which may simply be an oversight). Unfortunately, survival inside the suits is impossible as they are filled with crossbeams, wires, animatronic machinery and other electronic-mechanical structures, especially around the facial area. The only parts of the human body that would be visible through the suit are the eyeballs and teeth, which pop out of the front of the suit's mask. This ends up killing the player as seen on the "Game Over" screen in the first game.

In the second game, the original animatronics' pre-rebuilt versions aren't left on a free-roaming mode at night. Instead, during construction they were never given a proper night mode, so when they don't hear noise they think they're in the wrong room. They then try to find the nearest source of noise in an attempt to find a room with potential customers - in this case, the Office where the night security guard is. However, like the first game, upon sighting a person after-hours the animatronics believe the person is an endoskeleton without a suit on. Thus, they will attempt to forcefully stuff them into an animatronic suit, killing them in the process.

Although it’s assumed by employees of Fazbear Entertainment that the animatronics attack people because of faulty designs and glitches, there is a secret reason for the animatronics' homicidal tendencies involving the paranormal. The animatronics are haunted by the victims of the Missing Children Incident who were murdered by Fazbear Entertainment's other co-founder William Afton. As a result, the noises made by the animatronics are often theorized to be the cries and screams of said children. Another animatronic known as the Puppet who was haunted by William’s first victim, a girl named Charlotte Emily, put the souls of the victims into Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, Foxy and the mysterious Golden Freddy in order to resurrect them so they may have vengeance. The souls of the children who control the animatronics are blinded by rage and mistake adults for William. They will not rest until they kill the man who took their lives and finally have their happiest day and ascend to the afterlife.

Speculation

This section archives a lot of theories and speculation, which usually occurs from pre-release media, or just things that are still unknown, so please keep that in mind while reading. The page will continue to be updated with the most accurate information as more solid evidence is supplied.

The following information contains spoilers. To view them, click the [show] tag.

  • The animatronics are implied to have been possessed by kids named Gabriel, Jeremy, Susie and Fritz respectively as seen in the Completion Ending. This is evident by how the tombstones line up in correlation to how their masks are lined up in the Good Ending; however, their names have not been entirely confirmed.
  • Chica's real name was confirmed to be Susie; this is further supported by both the novels and Fazbear Frights, which confirms that Susie possessed Chica. This gives the other names for the animatronics' souls further credibility.
  • After being dismantled by their killer William Afton, in the end-of-night minigames, it's unknown if the animatronics' souls were actually freed. However, by evidence from the Good Ending and the Happiest Day minigame, it's confirmed that their souls were able to get free and rest by the Console Achievement where it’s stated the good ending is the ‘’true end’’ to the game.
  • During the early days of the series, it was initially believed by many fans that Freddy was possessed by a girl, this theory was created by two reasons.
    • Freddy can be seen in the female restroom on CAM 07.
    • If Freddy's laugh is sped up to a higher pitch, one can note that it sounds like a little girl laughing.[1] However, this theory seems to have been debunked as seen in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator; it's pretty evident at this point that Freddy was possessed by a male named Gabriel.

Trivia

  • According to Scott's hidden messages found from the newspaper during Five Nights at Freddy's 3's nightmare ending, the animatronics' names are nicknames as they were originally intended to be given with official names but Scott decided to choose the names he first thought up as soon as the first game completed its development.[2]
  • In the first game, the order in which the animatronics become threats to the player is alphabetical: first Bonnie, then Chica, then Foxy, and, finally, Freddy.
  • Golden Freddy shares the same model as Freddy Fazbear (but recolored), although due to being considered as a ghost-like entity, he is not relevantly a part of the classic animatronic group.
