Phantom Foxy is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 3 and is one of the six phantom animatronics in the game. He is a hallucination of a burnt and ravaged Foxy.

Physical Appearance

Phantom Foxy basically resembles Withered Foxy from the second game, but lacks eyes and instead has a white pupil on his left eye socket. He is missing his right forearm and hook; this same arm can be seen in the box full of parts in the Office. Phantom Foxy's mouth always gapes open, even while he performs his jumpscare and parts of his torso are missing, with an endoskeleton spine and wires in their place. Unlike in previous appearances, his eyepatch does not flip up anymore. Phantom Foxy also appears to be charred or burnt, possibly foreshadowing the torching of the establishment.

In Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, Phantom Foxy sports a completely different look. He now uses Classic Foxy's model from the original Five Nights at Freddy's, and lacks an eyepatch, as well as his lower legs, making his feet separate from his body. Upon closer section, he also lacks eyebrows.

Main Appearances

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

PhantomFoxyJumpscare

Phantom Foxy's jumpscare.

Rather than having a visual or audio cue to his appearance like the rest of the phantom animatronics, Phantom Foxy only appears in the Office.

Since he lacks a regular movement pattern, Phantom Foxy will randomly appear standing in front of the box of parts that is present in the Office.

If the player does not raise the Monitor before they look at him directly, Phantom Foxy will lunge at the player, disabling the ventilation system. The frequency of his appearance increases as the week progresses.

In the mobile version, however, Phantom Foxy has a different behavior. He will randomly jumpscare the player when they lower the Maintenance Panel, making him completely unavoidable. Perhaps the only form of knowing when he is active is his foot, which is barely visible under the Maintenance Panel.

Phantom Foxy appears in the mode FNAF 3 (VR). He debuts on Night 2, where he occasionally appears on the left side of the office. Like in the original Five Nights at Freddy's 3, the player must avoid staring at him, or else he will jumpscare them and cause a ventilation error.

Phantom Foxy appears in the separated RPG spin-off as one of the many players to unlock for the character selection.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

  • Phantom Foxy is based on Foxy's appearance in Five Nights at Freddy's 2 (Withered Foxy) rather than his appearance in the first game. The same applies to Phantom Freddy.
    • However, in merchandise such as Funko POP! and Funko Plushies, Phantom Foxy's model is just a recolor of Classic Foxy's model.
  • Phantom Foxy's pose before jumping at the player is almost identical to Foxy's pose in Parts/Service in the second game. However, this pose is not seen on the Extra menu, where he is depicted leaning forward aggressively.
  • Phantom Foxy's behavior is very similar to Golden Freddy's from the first game, though Phantom Foxy is triggered at random whereas Golden Freddy is triggered by a poster in the West Hall Corner.
  • Phantom Foxy's jumpscare is very similar to Foxy's from the second game.
    • However, unlike his jumpscare in the second game, Phantom Foxy's jumpscare in the third game appears to defy the laws of physics. Not only would it be impossible for Phantom Foxy to maneuver himself into a face-first position when he is jumping such a short distance, but he also appears to curve slightly to the player's left while in mid-air, which would be impossible.
    • This may be due to the fact that he is merely a hallucination, and thus does not need to obey the laws of physics.
  • Rarely, when the player starts up a night, mainly Night 5, Phantom Foxy may immediately jumpscare the player.
  • Phantom Foxy is the only phantom who doesn't give some sort of warning before he jumpscares the player. However, one can tell (possibly only on mobile platforms) when Phantom Foxy is about to jumpscare the player when looking at the Maintenance Panel, because the player can just barely see his foot beneath the panel.
  • Phantom Foxy is one of the two phantoms who is never seen on the cameras, the other being Phantom Freddy.
  • If the player gets jumpscared by Phantom BB while Phantom Foxy is in the office, a glitch will occur where Phantom Foxy will not jumpscare the player immediately, but rather stand on top of the box of animatronic parts.
    • If the player pulls up the monitor at this point, Phantom Foxy will leave the Office.
    • However, if the player pulls up the Maintenance Panel here, Phantom Foxy will jumpscare the player when they exit it and move the camera view.
  • This is one of Foxy's only counterparts in the entire series to not have his hook, the others being Mangle (also Phantom Mangle and Nightmare Mangle), Funtime Foxy, and Lolbit.
  • Most phantom animatronics appear in locations near where the remnants of the original character they represent are at. Phantom Chica is the only exception. Phantom Foxy appears in front of the toy animatronics' box, where his original hook is located.
  • Phantom Foxy is one of only two phantoms to have a much different appearance than his normal counterpart (if the phantom texture and eyes are not included), the other being Phantom Freddy.
  • Phantom Foxy can rarely appear on Night 2 in the mobile version.
  • In the mobile version, it is impossible to see Phantom Foxy appear just like in the PC version. This is most likely due to the size of The Office, as this would make Phantom Foxy appear as if he came out of thin air.
    • Therefore, he cannot be completely seen standing in the Office before jumpscaring the player, as the Maintenance Panel covers him almost completely. The only exception to this is if he appears after getting jumpscared by another phantom.
  • Phantom Foxy is one of several antagonists in the series who are missing a limb, two others being Bonnie from the second game and Phantom Freddy.

Errors

  • Phantom Foxy does not appear to touch the floor, rather hovering above it. This may be an error by Scott Cawthon, or, with similar reasoning to his jumpscare trajectory, it could be that he is a hallucination and thus does not need to obey the laws of physics.
  • In Phantom Foxy's jumpscare, a dangling red wire is shown not being held by anything else besides the suit itself.
