This article or section contains a lot of 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.
“Playing as a child whose role is yet unknown, you must safeguard yourself until 6am...”
The unnamed child protagonist(s) is/are the main character(s) in Five Nights at Freddy's 4.
The protagonist who remains in the bedroom, endangered by the nightmare animatronics. The child must look after the nightmare animatronics from his surroundings to survive in all seven nights, from 12 to 6AM. He has fair hearing, especially when considering Nightmare Bonnie and Nightmare Chica's quiet breathing.
- Main article: Crying Child
The child protagonist also appears in the end-of-night minigames. It's revealed he lives in the house with his family, consisting of his cruel big brother and unseen parents and possibly a sister. Unlike other protagonists of the franchise, his physical appearance is fully viewed. He has a fairly light skin tone with his face constantly stained with tears. He wears a black shirt with two lone gray stripes on it, and blue short trousers, an outfit which he wears for 6 days straight. He has constant black eyes and dark brown hair.
- The crying child bears a striking similarity to the fifth child in the happiest day minigame, with both being the birthday boys, and both being associated with the same animatronic.
- In Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, the Breaker Room's map reveals that the Five Nights at Freddy's 4 locations, the house during main gameplay and end-of-night minigame areas, are separated in different places, suggesting that there at least two protagonists.
- This would make Five Nights at Freddy's 4 one of two games to feature more than one playable character, the other being Five Nights at Freddy's 2 with Jeremy Fitzgerald and Fritz Smith.
- However, this may presumably be unlikely to be the case as very rarely the player can see what appears to be an IV cord and flowers something found in hospitals for sick, injured, or dying and that's most likely where the bite victim would go after the incident.
- Additionally the reason parts of the map were in different areas could be that the some of faded areas on the map are all apart of one building on the surface.
- The Private Room in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location heavily implies if not outright confirmed that he is a member of the Afton Family more specifically the son of William Afton as it's likely William was talking to him through the Fredbear plush through a walkie talkie next to the same plush on the desk helping him almost in a fatherly way. He also set up camera in the bite victim's house to watch him and William could have only did this if it was his own house.
