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

Foxy is an animatronic pirate fox as well as an antagonist 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.

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

Physical Appearance

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,

As his name suggests, 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. 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 beard stubble or translucent whiskers. It is possible that these whiskers may have simply been removed due to disrepair.

In Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, in Foxy's Parts and Service level, he is revealed 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. In the Afraid of the Dark: "Cap'n Foxy's Pirate Adventure" level in the Curse of Dreadbear DLC, he wears a blue frock coat with gold accents, a strap around his torso, and a pirate hat to match, befitting the nature of the attraction. Strangely, he lacks the golden teeth in this model.


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 VR: 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 Special Delivery, Foxy acts and speaks in a more aggressive, mocking, and belittling matter, seemingly taking delight in tormenting the player.


Five Nights at Freddy's

Also, check on the curtain in Pirate Cove from time to time. The character in there seems unique in that he becomes more active if the cameras remain off for long periods of time. I guess he doesn't like being watched. I don't know.
Phone Guy,

His starting location is behind the curtain in Pirate Cove, from which he will emerge and sprint towards the Office to attack the night guard on any given night if he is not monitored enough, through the security camera. Unlike the other animatronics in the game, Foxy will hide for a while before coming to attack the night guard on the first night.

Foxy is a unique character in the game because, unlike the other animatronics (excluding Freddy Fazbear), his movement pattern is entirely set. He starts at Pirate Cove, inside of the closed curtain, next peeking out of the curtain, then, starts to walk for the West Hall. However, once he becomes aggressive from not being viewed enough, he leaves Pirate Cove and rushes down the West Hall towards the Office. He does not appear anywhere else.

Output b2VZwk

Foxy attacking the night guard, animated.

Foxy hides behind his curtain in Pirate Cove throughout the game. Over the course of the night, the player must use the Monitor periodically. They must also monitor Pirate Cove very regularly to prevent Foxy from emerging from his curtain and sprinting towards the Office.

When Foxy retreats, he will sometimes immediately return to Phase 2 rather than Phase 1. He is also much more active on the mobile version to compensate for shorter nights. He will sometimes run back when his A.I. levels are quite high.[clarification needed]

Contrary to popular belief, it is not necessary to look specifically at Pirate Cove to prevent Foxy from attacking, as looking at any camera will accomplish the same thing.[2]


  1. Initially, Foxy is completely hidden behind the curtain.
  2. The curtain is parted slightly, allowing the player to view Foxy's face, upper half, and part of his bare legs.
  3. Foxy has left from behind the curtain, and is now in front of the camera, shrouded in darkness, with the only indication of his presence being his glowing eyes and outline. His head is also tilted sharply to the left.
  4. Foxy will precede his attack by leaving the curtains wide open. Sometimes, the sign reading "Sorry! Out of Order" will change to display the phrase "IT'S ME", a message commonly associated with Golden Freddy. Foxy himself is nowhere to be seen within Pirate Cove. At this point, if the Monitor is lowered immediately and the left door is closed, the player can then view CAM 2A to safely trigger Foxy's sprinting animation.
  5. Foxy has now left Pirate Cove and will begin to rush to the night guard's location. When viewing the West Hall (on CAM 2A), the player will briefly see Foxy sprinting towards the security room. At this point, the player either must have already closed the door or must close it immediately, though they are very unlikely to succeed after having spotted his sprint. If the West Hall is left unviewed for about 25 seconds, Foxy will automatically sprint to the Office regardless.
  6. If the player's attempt to block off the left doorway has succeeded, Foxy will bang on the door a few times, and then his position will reset back to behind the drapes in Pirate Cove (he can, however, reset straight to Phase 2 on the more difficult nights or settings). When Foxy bangs on the door, the player will lose a small portion of their power, the first time draining 1 percent of power, the second time draining 6 percent, third being 11 percent. If the player's attempt to close the left door has failed, Foxy will quickly lean into The Office and screech. The screen will then go to static, and will result in a "Game Over".

Five Nights at Freddy's 2

In the prequel, Foxy appeared in his pre-rebuilt, disrepaired incarnation known as Withered Foxy, who is replaced by an irreparable pile of scraps from the remains of a version of Foxy named Mangle, whose appearance is based off of a clown instead of a pirate. After the second game's events, Withered Foxy is retrofitted and repurposed for the location seen in the first game.

The original Foxy also did appear in some death minigames, such as "Foxy Go! Go! Go!".

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Foxy returns in Five Nights at Freddy's 3, along with Withered Foxy. Like the other animatronics, he appears as one of the attractions at Fazbear's Fright. His remains can be seen at CAM 04 and his older model in the box of animatronic parts in the Office. His appearance does not affect gameplay and is only there for aesthetic purposes. His role is majorly replaced by his phantom counterpart Phantom Foxy.

Foxy 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 through a map of the pizzeria from the first game.

On the fourth night, the player will play as Foxy, standing outside the curtains of Pirate Cove. Upon exiting the Cove and trying to 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 building, and the player will see the remains of Freddy, Bonnie, and Chica scattered on the floor from the previous minigames.

Shadow Freddy will enter a room that is inaccessible to the player (they will receive an "ERR" message if they try to enter it). As in the previous minigames, if the player tries to walk away, Purple Guy will rush out and attack and dismantle Foxy, leaving his remains on the floor alongside the rest of the animatronics, and the minigame will abruptly end.

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

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

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

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

In some minigames, the protagonist's older brother is seen wearing Foxy's mask.

During gameplay, his plushie can appear in the Closet while Nightmare Foxy's active.

Rather than appearing as himself, Foxy's role is majorly replaced with his nightmarish counterpart, Nightmare Foxy.

Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location

A version of Foxy, named Funtime Foxy, makes an appearance in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. Unlike most other versions of Foxy, Funtime Foxy is not a pirate and is instead a Circus Ringmaster.

Funtime Foxy's recolored counterpart, Lolbit, can also appear in the game as a rare hallucination that occasionally replaces Ennard's mask from the Primary Control Module as well as appearing in the Custom Night.

Ultimate Custom Night

Foxy returns in Ultimate Custom Night as one of the many selectable characters.

Foxy's jumpscare (UCN)

Foxy attacking the player, animated.

Foxy resides in CAM 05 alongside Bonnie. Like in the original Five Nights at Freddy's, the player must check him (but only if the figurine on the player's desk has changed to him) to slow down his attack, or else he'll escape and reach the office. Once he's reached the office, he will take himself apart and his pieces will be slid in through any open door or vent. Once all of his pieces are in the office, he will reassemble himself and jumpscare the player. Alternatively, Foxy can be removed from the night (and Bonnie, if he's active as well) if the player buys the death coin and uses it on him.

The challenges in which Foxy is present are as follows:

  • Old Friends
  • Chaos 3

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted


Foxy attacking the player in FNAF 1, animated.


Foxy attacking the player in Parts and Service, animated.

Foxy returns as an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. He appears in all nights in FNAF 1 and shows up as one of repairable animatronics in the Parts and Service mode. He also appears in the FNAF 2 levels, starting at Night 2. Foxy also appears as a collectible action figure and plush when completing any night being able to see it in the Prize Counter.


Like the original game, Foxy hides in Pirate Cove throughout most of the game. The player has to constantly check on CAM 1C to see Foxy's current status. Foxy will often be seen peeking out his curtains as the shift goes on. The player needs to check on Foxy with a balance between frequent and not too frequent to prevent him from emerging. Failing to meet these requirements will result in Foxy moving out of Pirate Cove and running to the Office at full speed.

The player must quickly shut the left door to halt his attack. Despite this, Foxy will regardless drain the Office's power supply (depending on how the number of times he sprints). If the player doesn't stop Foxy in time, then the latter will proceed to jumpscare them and ending the night.

Parts and Service

Foxy has been out of commission for too long, and it's up to the player to fix him up so Pirate Cove can be reopened. First, the player must put Foxy's mask back on his endoskeleton head. Once his head is on, Foxy will begin to malfunction in the form of rapid body movements, and the player must keep an eye on him as they take fuses from numbered drawers and place them into specific receptacles in a specific order. For every fuse put in, Foxy will regain more control of his body. After putting all the fuses in, the player finishes off by putting Foxy's right eye back in its socket. Putting a fuse in the wrong receptacle or placing the wrong-colored eye into Foxy's socket will result in him jumpscaring the player and forcing them to start over.

Curse of Dreadbear

Foxy appears as the host of the "Cap'n Foxy's Pirate Adventure" level, of which he is the main attraction. When starting the level, Foxy explains the rules of the ride itself(especially the shooting gallery portions), and warns them to keep their hands inside the ride at all times. Throughout the ride itself, Foxy will make off-hand comments about the scenery and the Player's skill with the provided hand cannon. at the end of the level, Foxy will grade the player based on how they did, with corresponding titles befitting their skill. "Bilge rat" if they performed poorly, "Scallywag" if they performed decently, "Buccaneer" if the player performed greatly, "First Mate" if they shot a significant amount of targets, "Captain" if they performed most of, if not all of the targets, and "Admiral" if they performed perfectly.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

Foxy is one of the characters currently in Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery. Foxy will rush around confusing the player and sometimes Fakeout the player into thinking they are in danger. To stop him, Shock him. It is also possible to obtain a Foxy plush suit that can be placed on an endoskeleton and said endoskeleton can then be sent to salvage for parts or attack other players.

Five Nights at Freddy's

  • On the mobile version, Foxy may reset back to phase 3 on later nights.
  • It seems that Foxy can move his eyepatch to cover and uncover his right eye at will. It is likely rigged to several joints to allow movement. It initially appears to not cover his eye; however, as he enters The Office, it is down, and, as he screeches, it is raised, exposing his eye. However, this may be due to it physically moving as he sprints towards the night guard.
  • Upon banging on the closed door after his sprint down the hallway, Foxy will drain a small portion of the player's power: one percent the first time, six percent the second time, and eleven percent the third time. The amount of power drained increases by five percent with each subsequent attack.
    • Foxy is also one of the characters that can drain the power supply, the others being Funtime Foxy and Electrobab.
  • It was commonly theorized that Foxy was the animatronic responsible for The Bite of '87. His jaw appears broken, which could be a result of biting down on a customer, and his sharp teeth and elongated mouth make him the most capable of causing serious damage, though blunt teeth could still easily remove a large portion of a customer's brain. Another thought is that the force needed to rip through flesh and bone would be too much for an animatronic jaw to handle, breaking it in the process.
    • It's also worth noting that, while rushing down the West Hall towards The Office, Foxy seems to chomp at the air. This may be because of weakened joints in his jaw causing it to snap due to his momentum. This theory could also explain why Foxy has been discontinued.
    • In the second game, however, he was stowed away in Parts/Service, and with the advent of Mangle, another possible culprit, he appears to be a very unlikely candidate for the bite.
    • In Five Nights at Freddy's 4, this theory was seemingly disproved since Fredbear (in the minigames) was thought to be responsible for the bite. However, It has been confirmed that the bite that happened in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 was actually the Bite of '83, so Foxy or Mangle could still be responsible for the Bite of '87.
  • It is quite rare to see Foxy on the first night, but this has been proven to be able to occur if the player does not check the cameras at all for about 1 minute and 15 seconds (less than an in-game hour on PC). Indeed, if the player employs the "Just close the Left Door" strategy and does absolutely nothing, it is possible that Foxy will attack twice or even three times. Should this happen, it will make Night 1 impossible to beat due to Foxy draining power every time he knocks.
  • Foxy is typically a feminine name, though he's officially referred to as "he" by Phone Guy within the game. "The character in there seems unique in that he becomes more active if the cameras remain off for long periods of time. I guess he doesn't like being watched. I don’t know."
    • He was also referred to as male by Scott Cawthon.[3]
    • The same model of Foxy is still referred to by Phone Guy in the second game as a male.
    • In addition, Bonnie also has a feminine name.
  • If the player notices that Pirate Cove is empty, there is a window of time in which one may close the door before viewing the West Hall and triggering Foxy's sprint (5 to 10 seconds). This technique may save a night when Foxy is particularly active; bypassing his trigger in this way will essentially render him harmless.
  • The only time the player can see Foxy in any sort of daytime light is during the Custom Night's A.I. customization screen.
  • Foxy is the only one of the main four animatronics to have a unique kill screen, as he appears in the doorway as opposed to biting directly in front of the night guard's face. The only other unique kill screen is that of Golden Freddy.
    • Therefore, Foxy from this game is the only animatronic in the entire series where his jumpscare doesn't involve attacking in front of the player's face.
  • In the game's files, there is a sound byte referred to as Pirate_song2. When viewed, this song is actually the "Dum Dum De Dum" song that can be heard several times throughout a playthrough. Foxy does apparently sing this, as the sound gets louder if the player views Pirate Cove. What triggers him to sing is unknown.
    • Foxy is the first animatronic from the series to sing, the second being Ballora.
    • He is also the first animatronic in the series to have voice acting, although this is through a stock sound, whose provider remains unknown.
  • Foxy may be in some ways based on the character Rolfe DeWolfe from the Rock-afire Explosion, ShowBiz Pizza Place's animatronic band, as both have their own stage apart from the other characters as well as both animatronics being animals part of the Canidae (foxes, wolves, dogs, etc.) family.
  • Foxy is the only animatronic who moves on camera, while the other animatronics only move when the cameras are off, the twitching seen from Bonnie and Chica being an exception.
  • Like Chica, Foxy does not appear during visual hallucinations.
  • Unlike the main animatronics, the screen does not shake when Foxy attacks the night guard. This is most likely due to the fact that Foxy screeches when he is leaning inside the door, not directly in the night guard's face like the other animatronics.
  • Foxy is one of the two animatronics not featured in the trailer, the other being Golden Freddy.
  • As with Chica, Foxy's black-glossy eyes are never seen.
  • Foxy is the only animatronic whose head isn't seen Backstage. It is likely due to the fact that he is discontinued.
  • Foxy is the only one of the four main animatronics to not have a purchasable in-game plushie on the Android version of the game.
  • Foxy's death animation can be canceled if the power runs out (see here). It can also be interrupted by other animatronics if they get in first.
  • As with the other animatronics, Foxy does not move in Pirate Cove whilst the player views the Monitor.
  • Foxy is possibly based on and/or inspired by Chuck E. Cheese's retired animatronic Foxy Colleen, since both are retired fox animatronics and share the same first name.
  • Foxy is the only animatronic whose voice can be heard undistorted when he sings at random times during the night.
  • In the third teaser picture for the second game, Foxy looks exactly like how he does in the first game, with the exception of his glossy-black eyes being shown. In the actual second game, however, he looks quite different.
  • In the trailer for the first game, Bonnie is shown running down the West Hall. However, in the final game, Foxy was given this ability, and Bonnie was given the ability to teleport along his attack route. It is speculated that this is because Scott wanted a "surprise animatronic."
  • Foxy is the only animatronic in the first game who has teeth on his upper jaw.
  • Foxy's singing can occasionally be heard before Freddy attacks when the power runs out, as seen here.
  • Foxy is the only character in the game who has a different color of eyelids, while the others have black.
    • He's also the only character to have different colored eyebrows.
  • From his render screenshot for the series' 2nd anniversary in which he gives two thumbs up, Foxy's armor suit-covers, as well as shoulder pads, are missing from his arms.
    • Foxy's hook from the right is replaced with another hand, allowing him to give double thumbs up.
    • This may simply be because the aforementioned picture was taken during the development of the game, before the missing details/parts were added to the model.
  • Scott Cawthon created the model for Foxy during his 24-hour drive to visit Scott's in-laws in Summer 2014. The reason why Foxy's model looks "torn up" is because it was difficult to model a 3D-modeled character on a bumpy car ride, according to Scott.[4]
    • Scott's kids also experienced Foxy's jumpscare for the first time.
      • Foxy's creation was also based off one of Scott's son's ideas.[5]
  • During his jumpscare, an error shows his ears clip through the top of the door.
    • In the first few frames of his jumpscare, Foxy has golden teeth. However, after his jaws open, the golden teeth become white.
  • Foxy leaves immediately upon arriving at a closed door. This may be a bug, as he is gone even before the sound clip of him banging on the door has ended.
  • Occasionally, Foxy's XSCREAM jumpscare sound byte will play fully rather than being cut off. The same glitch can happen with Bonnie and with Freddy when the power has been fully drained.
    • Another interesting glitch is when Foxy peeks out of the curtain, but then goes back inside without sprinting to the Office. This glitch has only been seen in the mobile version.
  • The following is how Foxy's AI mechanics work:
    • Every 501 ticks, the game will pick a random number between 1 and 20. If this number is less than or equal to Foxy's AI level, he will move.
    • There is also a timer preventing him from moving. When the monitor is lowered, it is randomized between 50 and 1050 ticks (A tick is about 0.01 seconds). As long as the timer is greater than 0, Foxy can't move. This also means that he can't move at all when the monitor is up. However, if he has reached the West Hall, this does not apply, as he will go to his running animation as soon as the player switches to the West Hall camera. Foxy will also go directly to attack if the player hasn't triggered the animation yet after 1500 ticks have passed since he left Pirate Cove.
    • Foxy's AI levels for each night are as follows: 0, 1, 2, 6, 5, 6. His AI will increase by 1 on 3 AM and 4 AM.
  • There is a very popular belief that monitoring Foxy's movement too much will cause him to become more active. This, however, is not true as repeatedly flipping the camera up and down over Pirate Cove makes it so he doesn't move at all, so there is no worry about checking Foxy too much.
    • This belief is true in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted as keeping the camera on making him attack more than not checking him at all.[citation needed]

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

  • Despite the events of Five Nights at Freddy's, Foxy does not appear withered. It is unknown why he is undamaged, although this could be due to minigame restrictions.
  • From the very first night, Phone Dude refers Foxy's head as a "crappy cosplay".[6]
  • Foxy is the only playable character in the end-of-night minigames that starts out somewhere other than the Show Stage, namely, Pirate Cove.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

  • It is unknown why exactly the Foxy plush is missing its head, as it is the only plush missing a body part. Some possible explanations include:
    • It is possible that it may represent the child starting to hate Foxy due to his older brother scaring him using a Foxy mask.
    • It is possible that the Foxy mask the brother uses actually is the head from the Foxy plush, which would explain why it is missing from the plush. Although, it may be impossible because Foxy's plush appears too small for his head to use as a mask.
    • It is also possible that the Foxy plush having its head torn off may foreshadow the fate of the child after the Night 5 Minigame, having his head crushed by Fredbear.
    • It could also be part of the running gag of Foxy's counterparts being damaged in some way.

Ultimate Custom Night

  • Unlike previous Five Nights at Freddy's games, Foxy's eyepatch is always seen covering his right eye, and does not flip up at any point.
  • So far, Foxy is the only animatronic character in Ultimate Custom Night previously from the first game to have voice-acting.
  • Foxy's progression in between his phases is determined by the player's actions. If Foxy is active and the player idles in the office for a long time, then it is very likely that Foxy will have entered the office once they've put up the monitor. And if one of his pieces is inside the office, then, as long as the Foxy figurine is on the desk and the player idles in the office for a long time, then it is very likely that once the player puts up the monitor, Foxy will instantly skip to his full reassembly and jumpscare the player.
  • One of Foxy's quotes references both his mechanic in the original Five Nights at Freddy's, in which he would sprint down the west hallway, and his mechanic in Ultimate Custom Night in which he enters the office piece by piece.
  • Foxy, along with Bonnie, was one of the last characters to be programmed, being programmed at 100%.
  • Foxy's page describes his character having a "thick Pirate's accent and a lot of personality and power. He sounds gravely and old, like an aged and weary soul but still full of fire and vinegar. "
  • Christopher McCullough, Foxy's voice provider, has uploaded a video of him singing Foxy's humming from the original game (
  • On April 1st, Scott Cawthon supposedly added Foxy's mechanic (along with Nightmare Freddy and Phone Guy). However, the mechanic turned out to be an April Fool's joke, referencing the common theory of Foxy being a good guy back then in 2014. Somewhat ironically, this joke mechanic would later be modified and reused for Rockstar Foxy.
    • The mechanic reads: “He will run into your office when things are looking dire and offer to help you. You can choose one of three ways for him to assist: He can block one door, clear the vents, or add 1% more power to your meter."
  • Foxy has four ways of getting into The Office - both doors and both vents. Along with Nightmare Fredbear, Nightmare, and Nightmarionne, this gives him the most ways of getting to the player out of any animatronic in the entire series.
  • If one looks closely, Foxy's first phase is the exact same as his mugshot.
  • His mugshot is actually a closeup of the Foxy figurine seen on the desk in the Office.
  • On one of his death quotes, Foxy mentions the old meme "Swiggity Swooty, coming for the booty" from the old FNaF days, but then corrects himself to explain the pirate term for treasure.

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

  • When jumpscaring the player, Foxy emits the scream emitted by Plushtrap and Nightmare BB when they jumpscare the player in Five Nights at Freddy's 4.
  • Unlike becoming active starting from Night 2 in Five Nights at Freddy's, Foxy actually becomes active in Night 1 in the FNAF 1 level.
  • By turning Foxy to his back in the gallery, it is revealed that Foxy's back is exposed halfway from the top, revealing the back of his ribs.
  • Before September 14, 2019's update patch, Foxy in his original form appeared in the Five Nights at Freddy's 2 levels instead of his withered counterpart.
  • The aforementioned possible bug of Foxy leaving upon arriving at a closed door is fixed in the FNAF 1 mode, if the player opens the door while the sound of Foxy's knock is still playing, he will enter the Office and jumpscare them, even though Pirate Cove still reverts to his first phase.
    • Foxy is also given a much more powerful sound for his knocking, making it longer so the jumpscare mentioned could happen.
    • In that mode, Foxy is more likely to be able to knock out the remaining power than he was in the original game, as the power drains slightly faster to balance out the Monitor not draining any power.
  • Christopher McCullough returned as Foxy for one line of the unused Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Theme Song in the standard version of the game, before returning officially as him in the Pirate Ride level from The Curse of Dreadbear.
    • Another note is that Christopher himself has uploaded a video of him singing the LazyTown song "You are a Pirate" with his Foxy voice, it can be shown right " [1]".

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

  • Despite wearing a suit, Foxy makes a sound as if he is lighter than a Bare Endo, showing no sign of weight when roaming or charging.
  • Foxy and Circus Baby are the only characters to ever speak as they charge.
  • Foxy mentions having a bird in one of his quotes, but he is never seen with a bird in any of the Five Nights at Freddy's games.
    • However, some of the cutouts in the Pirate Ride from Curse of Dreadbear depicted him with a green parrot, which could imply that he had one at some point, likely prior to becoming disrepaired.
    • Said parrot resembles that of Rockstar Foxy.


  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

  3. There are four animatrons that can get you (although only three appear here in the screenshots). The chicken, "Chica", tries to get in from the right door. The rabbit, "Bonnie", approaches from the left. Freddy Fazbear himself only attacks if you run out of power before the night is over. The fourth robot is behind the curtain of Pirate Cove and remains hidden most of the time. He becomes more active when the player doesn't check the cameras often, eventually causing him to run down the hall in a frenzy and into your office! - Scott Cawthon, Steam - July 9, 2014 @ 9:03 PM
  4. I actually modeled the Foxy character on my laptop while riding on a 24hr drive to visit my in-laws over the summer of 2014, it’s very difficult to model a 3D character on a bumpy car ride. Maybe this is why Foxy looks so torn up!
    While we were there visiting my kids got to experience Foxy’s jumpscare for the first time! - Scott Cawthon, from the FNaF3 newspaper after completing Nightmare.
  5. Oh heck yes lol. My most memorable one was from when he was creating the first game - We were on a road trip to visit family in New York. On the way there, I actually helped create Foxy - I gave my dad design ideas and thoughts on how to better the character for spookiness, but when we got there he let me beta test the game for the first time. I was terrified, obviously, and the first jumpscare I ever got was by Chica - And it got me so bad, it literally made me flip over the chair and almost knock the laptop off the table. It was amazing lol. - One of Scott's sons, July 10, 2016.
  6. "Uh... Now let me tell you about what's new. We found another set of drawings, always nice, and a Foxy head! Which we think to be authentic... then again it might just be another crappy cosplay, and we found a desk fan, very old school - metal, though, so watch the fingers." - Phone Dude, Night 1
