RWQFSFASXC (also known as Shadow Bonnie or RWQ for short) is a mysterious shadow counterpart of Toy Bonnie from the Five Nights at Freddy's series. He first appeared in Five Nights at Freddy's 2.

Physical Appearance

RWQFSFASXC is a shadowy, silhouetted version of Toy Bonnie with white eyes and teeth.

RWQFSFASXC might be Toy Bonnie's counterpart due to his nearly identical appearance. He seems to have a full set of teeth visible, with an additional upper pair as opposed to Toy Bonnie's buck teeth. He also appears to be shorter, and his body is composed of two segments. It is unknown whether or not these differences have any relevance.


Five Nights at Freddy's 2

An animatronic known as RWQFSFASXC, or Shadow Bonnie, can occasionally be seen standing on the left side of the office. Looking at RWQFSFASXC for too long will cause your game to crash.
The Freddy Files, page 43

On rare occasions, when the player lowers the Monitor, RWQFSFASXC has 1/1,000,000 (0.0001%) chance to appear standing on the left side of the Office where Golden Freddy normally sits. At first, he doesn't seem hostile and cannot jumpscare, but if the player does nothing but staring at him for at least 4 seconds, he will appear to fade away like Golden Freddy and crash the game (or directly sends the player back to the main menu in console ports).

There are three ways to prevent RWQFSFASXC from crashing the game:

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Shadow Bonnie returns in Five Nights at Freddy's 3 in a very minor role. He only appears in the minigames but not ingame itself.

In the end-of-night minigame after beating Night 4, RWQFSFASXC can be seen standing inside the right-side box in the West Hall screen. This refers to a hidden figurine of a dark-colored Toy Bonnie figurine that stands on the player's desk on Night 5. Double-clicking this figurine triggers the "Glitch" minigame.

To make him fly infinitely, the player must press the W button. RWQFSFASXC will phase-shift or glitch through various minigame vignettes as well as a unique purple room that can be triggered by the S key. While playing as RWQFSFASXC in the "Glitch" minigame, the player must complete either of the two endings:

  • In the basic ending, RWQFSFASXC ventures through the room, and exits through the door.
  • In the cake ending, RWQFSFASXC can go to the BB's Air Adventure section of this minigame and leave the room in the top-left. Phasing over to the purple room with the crying ghost child while RWQFSFASXC is outside of the room allows him to contact the child. If the player has unlocked prior Cake Ending criteria, touching the crying child will make a cake appear, exiting the minigame and unlocking a child on the Happiest Day minigame.

Ultimate Custom Night

RWQFSFASXC finally makes a return in Ultimate Custom Night as one of the several non-selectable characters summoned by Dee Dee.

After being summoned by Dee Dee, he will appear in the Office and emit thick black fog which will cover the entire Office for about 10 seconds, with any animatronic in the Office still visible, however. This makes the player unable to see the doors or vent doors, forcing them to keep track of what is open and closed through other means.

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

In the Curse of Dreadbear DLC for Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, RWQFSFASXC's cardboard cutout can be found in the Afraid of the Dark mode's "Corn Maze" segment.

RWQFSFASXC receives a big role in Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery. He will only spawn if enough Shadow Remnants are collected, and, unlike in previous games, he is completely hostile. After spawning, the player must shine their Flashlight at RWQFSFASXC to repel him. The player must do multiple rounds of repelling him before he finally is defeated. His difficulty permanently increases after each time he is beaten, increasing the amount of rounds he can last and increasing his disruption strength and frequency, until it finally reaches a point where he is completely impossible to defeat. RWQFSFASXC slowly walks towards the player each time he appears, and if the player is too slow to shine their light on him, he will attack the player, resulting in failure.

Defeating him will reward the player with more Remnants and a streak, while losing to him breaks the player's current streak and removes a varying amount of Remnants from the player (typically 10-25).

Warning: Loud!


  • According to a post by Scott Cawthon on Steam, RWQFSFASXC was the easiest character in the series to model, as all he had to do was "dip Toy Bonnie in black and call it a day.[1]
  • RWQFSFASXC does bear some physical similarities to Springtrap, such as the body structure and full set of teeth. This may hint at RWQFSFASXC being analogous to Springtrap in a similar way that Shadow Freddy is to Golden Freddy (roughly the same body but different color and behavior).

Five Nights at Freddy's 2

  • He was first added to update patch 1.03.
  • In the game's MFA using Clickteam Fusion 2.5, there is an object with the alternate name RWQFSFASXC, which has RWQFSFASXC's graphic attached to it.
  • From original mobile ports, RWQFSFASXC can freeze the game instead of crashing the game from the original PC version. In the remastered edition, RWQFSFASXC can now send the player back to the main menu screen like from the home console ports.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

  • If RWQFSFASXC's sprite from the end-of-night minigame after completing Night 4 was brightened twice, he appears to be brilliant blue in color. This also happens with the shadowy versions of the cupcake in both one end-of-night minigame and "Chica's Party" minigame, the shadowy BB figures, and the Puppet-like figure.
  • The music box in RWQFSFASXC's Glitch Minigame is really just a music box-based excerpt from "Serenade", a 19th century composition by late enlightenment period-early Romantic era composer Franz Schubert.

Ultimate Custom Night

  • From the Character Guide announcement on the game's Steam page, Scott describes the mechanics for Shadow Bonnie with his own words. Although RWQFSFASXC does not have his own description in-game due to lacking customizable AI:

He will cause your office to become pitch black for about ten seconds. There is no way to avoid him.[2]

  • RWQFSFASXC's render in the Office is nearly identical to himself seen in the second game, only with his head facing the center rather than slightly to the left (right side of the screen), having both feet facing the center as well instead of the right (left side of the screen), and showing full ears.
  • RWQFSFASXC seen in the teaser with other non-selectable characters shows himself in a mugshot, although due to lacking his own customizable AI, he never got one in-game.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

  • This marks the first time RWQFSFASXC is a hostile character.
