Never underestimate the cunning of a pirate. Or a fox for that matter!
Foxy, Ultimate Custom Night

Foxy is a major antagonist and an animatronic pirate fox in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise. He is a discontinued animatronic entertainer who resides at his own separated stage from Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. At midnight, he is supposedly left in a "free-roaming mode" until 6 AM, to prevent his servos from locking up.

Like the other animatronics, Foxy will try to forcefully stuff any human spotted after-hours into a Freddy Fazbear suit, resulting in death.[1]

Secretly Foxy 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.

Physical Appearance

Classic Foxy

A reddish-brown animatronic fox with yellow eyes and an elongated snout. He wears an eye patch, which is usually flipped up, and has a hook for a right hand. He looks somewhat damaged, with his endoskeleton exposed in a number of places.
The Freddy Files, page 15

Foxy is a large, animatronic fox with crimson tattered fur. He has yellow eyes, red eyebrows, and three strings of hair from the top of his head. He has a hook for his right hand and his left hand has been worn down to the endoskeleton. He also bears an eye patch that is folded over his right eye, although he is usually seen with it above his eye rather than covering it. Unlike the stereotypical fox, Foxy doesn't have a tail.

Foxy wears brown linen pants that are especially shredded at the legs. He appears to be damaged, as parts of his machinery are exposed. It can clearly be seen that both his legs, with the exception of his upper thighs, and his left hand is completely bare, exposing the metal endoskeleton underneath. His chest is ripped in various places, showing the endoskeleton beneath, and his arms and stomach are torn apart as well, with tufts of fur on the shoulders. He also seems to have a slightly droopy left eyelid. Like all of the other Fazbear characters, Foxy has a set of teeth. Foxy's teeth, however, appear to be the sharpest out of all the animatronics, being similar to those of an actual canine, while the other animatronics' teeth resemble human-like dentures or herbivorous teeth. It's also notable that, in keeping with the pirate motif, he has several golden teeth and also appears to have some teeth missing, though this may be due to him needing repairs. He also has a hanging jaw; this is also likely due to him needing repairs. His ears are articulated, thus able to move back and forth and left to right. His upper jaw muzzle is speckled on the sides with black dots, indicating freckles or translucent whiskers. It is possible that these whiskers may have simply been removed due to disrepair. In Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, Foxy's design is altered slightly. His fur color is more desaturated and his fur's texture is more matted and scratchy.

From the Afraid of the Dark: "Captain Foxy's Pirate Adventure" level in Help Wanted's Curse of Dreadbear DLC and Freddy & Friends: On Tour! show, it was revealed that Foxy originally wore his pirate outfit before his discontinuation. He wears a blue frock coat with gold accents, a strap around his torso, and a pirate hat to match, befitting his pirate nature.

In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, Foxy's design remains the same as his original, however for realism purposes, his design receives specular refection.

Withered Foxy

This Foxy is more tattered than in FNAF. He has one animatronic ear completely exposed and several tears showing his endoskeleton.
The Freddy Files, page 39

As Withered Foxy (Foxy's withered form), he, along with the four other older animatronics have all fallen into severe disrepair and he is replaced by his newer counterpart for the "improved" Freddy Fazbear's Pizza due to an attempted retrofit of the older animatronics that took place before they got scrapped for the newer models, such as Mangle.[2] Withered Foxy's suit has become even more tattered and the fur on his left ear has come off completely. A noticeable difference is what seems to be a change of shape of his muzzle. The teeth of his endoskeleton are now clearly visible, this being true with every old animatronic. However, when comparing his appearance and even his voice to Withered Bonnie, Withered Chica, or even his brand new counterpart Mangle, Foxy actually seems to be in better shape, since, just like Withered Freddy, the worst damage he has on him are just some huge rips. Unlike some of the aforementioned animatronics, Foxy is not entirely stripped off his costume, nor is he missing his face or any limbs.

In Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, Withered Foxy's design remains unchanged for the most part, however, the most noticeable change is that he has a darker shade of red.


As Foxy's attraction title would imply, Foxy's personality is that of a stereotypical pirate, often using pirate slang, all with a pirate accent. One of his lines also suggests claustrophobia. According to a game over screen in Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, Foxy is perceptive, and not easily deceived. Based on Freddy Fazbear's description of Foxy in the Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Theme Song, he is implied to be reclusive, based on the fact that Freddy Fazbear sings about Foxy, rather than Foxy singing himself only helps prove this.

As shown in Curse of Dreadbear, Foxy seems to be aware of his dilapidated look when he warns the player to stay inside the ride. He also threatens the player saying he will send them to "Davy Jones' locker" if they do poorly. His lines also sound as if they were being played over loudspeakers, as opposed to emanating from Foxy himself.

In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, Foxy acts and speaks in a more aggressive, mocking, and belittling matter, seemingly taking delight in tormenting the player. This shows how much of a sadistic approach he's willing to take.

As Withered Foxy, nothing much is known about his personality, however, Withered Foxy seems to be a more aggressive and malicious version of the original Foxy, this is evidenced by how Phone Guy mentions that Foxy can get a bit twitchy[3].


He is revealed in Help Wanted to have control fuses in certain parts of his body, which allow his servos to properly function. Without said fuses or if there's a fuse in the wrong receptacle, he malfunctions.

  1. "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
  2. "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
  3. "Uh...heh...I love those old characters. Did you ever see Foxy the pirate? Oh wait, hold on...oh yeah, Foxy. Uh, hey listen, that one was always a bit twitchy, uh...I'm not sure the Freddy head trick will work on Foxy, uh. If for some reason he activates during the night and you see him standing at the far end of the hall, just flash your light at him from time to time. Those older models would always get disoriented with bright lights. It would cause a system restart, or something. Uh, come to think of it, you might want to try that on any room where something undesirable might be. It might hold them in place for a few seconds. That glitch might've carried over to some of the newer models too" - Phone Guy, Night 2
