Nightmare Fredbear, Nightmare Bonnie, and Nightmare Foxy seen in the title menu of Five Nights at Freddy's 4.

The nightmare animatronics are heavily withered, monstrous versions of the existing animatronics that reside in the child protagonist's house.

They first appeared in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 as primary antagonists, and later appeared in Ultimate Custom Night (but Nightmare Foxy) and Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted (but Nightmare Mangle and Nightmare).

Physical Appearance

Alongside with the twisted animatronics from the novel trilogy's universe, the nightmare animatronics appear as the most menacing out of all animatronic classes.

Most of the monsters are featured with a deteriorated appearance with big series of rips and holes all over, sporting a total of ten fingers with spike-like claws/nails, an excessive amount of long dangerously sharp teeth (found in both the structure of the animatronics and the endoskeletons), and small metallic eyes. Their endoskeleton heads look suspiciously similar to that of a human skull, with a line of indentations down their forehead.

Functionality

Although not much is known, it's apparent that they were not made to be used for Fazbear Entertainment's restaurants. Their behavioral function is that of a sadistic, feral beast, possibly can use their gnarly claws and teeth to kill their pursued victims. They also have a tendency to gloat and mock their victims as they do so, often resorting to using creative, yet sardonically morbid statements for emphasis. However, some of them are rather blunt in their speech patterns.

Trivia

  • The nightmare animatronics' designs are very similar to the Viruses (especially Ger Garun) from one of Scott Cawthon's previous games, The Desolate Hope.
  • Similar to the phantoms, the Puppet, Mangle, and BB are the only toy animatronics to receive nightmare counterparts.
  • There is an official MyMoji virtual sticker of Nightmare Springtrap, as Springtrap does not canonically have a nightmare counterpart in the series' universe.
  • Along with the funtimes, toys, and rockstars, the nightmare animatronics are one of the animatronic models to receive some re-colored/reskinned counterparts.
