Phantom Chica and Phantom Foxy from the "In your mind" teaser for Five Nights at Freddy's 3.

In addition to Springtrap, there are loads of animatronic hallucinations to deal with. All of them will cause systems to malfunction unless you take quick action, and suspiciously, all the animatronics appear burned.
The Freddy Files, page 64

The phantom animatronics are hallucination-like variants of the original animatronics who haunt in Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction throughout the nights.

The phantom animatronics first appeared in Five Nights at Freddy's 3 as side antagonists. Some of them returned in Ultimate Custom Night and Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted.

Physical Appearance

Phantom Balloon Boy from the "Guess who" teaser for Five Nights at Freddy's 3.

The phantom animatronics are burnt and damaged ghost-like entities based on the animatronics, with greenish hues and charred colors. Their dark color tones make these variants almost blend in with the backgrounds, as well as making them hardly noticeable, especially when viewing the security cameras. All of the phantom animatronics have empty black eyes with grayish-colored irises and glowing white pupils. Their charred appearance may foreshadow Fazbear's Fright burning down.


The phantoms' origins and whereabouts are unexplored. They will randomly appear on certain cameras or in the Office. If one is to witness the phantoms, they cannot physically kill but jumpscare them, then disappear in a flash of light to either disable their ventilation or merely act as distractions.

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.

  • A theory that the Phantom Animatronics exist could be because they were created by Springtrap in order to help him kill the night guard easier. The Fazbear Frights story, What We Found, seems to support this theory.


  • Interestingly, Bonnie does not have a phantom counterpart, although Springtrap (despite not being a phantom) technically takes the role of a Bonnie counterpart.
  • In Ultimate Custom Night, the animatronics appear less burnt and are visually brighter.
  • Despite appearing in Help Wanted, none of their models appear in the Gallery area or have their own action figures.
