“Welcome to Hide-and-Seek! Enter your name and try to find Bonnie, and let's begin!”
Like his game counterpart, Shadow Bonnie's skin does remain pitch black and his pupils remain ghostly white. However, unlike his game counterpart, he doesn't closely resemble Toy Bonnie, being based more on the original classic version of Bonnie. He stars in a cardboard minigame. His form drastically changes when he's set free from the game he was trapped in, and when his power grows as the story progresses. Shadow Bonnie is much larger and has much sharper teeth in his mouth with a pair of clawed fingers.
Shadow Bonnie stars in the minigame "Hide and Seek." at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and Games. Upon the game starting, Shadow Bonnie slides out on a rail and hides in one of fifteen locations. The player must find Shadow Bonnie in three tries within three minutes in order to win. He is released when the protagonist Toby destroys the game out of anger.
Shadow Bonnie fills two distinct roles: the sought after character in Hide and Seek and Toby's tormentor. When Hide and Seek opens at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and Games, Toby sees it as the perfect opportunity to finally beat his brother Connor at one of the location's games. Unable to win on the first day, Toby makes rail blocks in woodworking class and on the next attempt, begins blocking off parts of the game, limiting the locations the rabbit can use to hide. Despite this, Shadow Bonnie remains evasive. Angered, Toby blocks off every section so the rabbit can't hide anywhere. When the game lights next turn off, Shadow Bonnie wasn't blocked and disappeared. After checking every location and finding nothing, Toby snaps and destroys the game.
Doing so draws the mysterious ire of Shadow Bonnie, and Toby suffers a nightmare of the shadow being sewn into his back. With Shadow Bonnie attached to Toby, it disappears from Hide and Seek and the game keeps going, with technicians unable to reboot the game. Upon confirming Shadow Bonnie really was attached to his body, Toby grows more volatile and begins trying to find a way to remove it. A few people notice the shadow in the mirrors, but most see nothing.
After a few failed attempts to remove him (slamming his back into the wall and trying to scrub it off, only hurting himself and trying to drown his tormentor, almost drowning himself). As Toby grows more infuriated and afraid, Shadow Bonnie increases in size and power, starting to dominate Toby as he gains eyes and a mouth. Toby then has yet another nightmare, this time he is inside the hide and seek game and is hiding from the shadowy spirit. Unfortunately, Shadow Bonnie finds Toby and begins to suck him into his mouth like a black hole, and chomps down on him with his glowing sharp teeth. After waking up, he finds Conner outside of the bathroom and becomes enraged telling him that their rivalry isn't fair as he always looses every single time. After hearing this, Connor forfeits the right to beat Toby at everything after realizing how much the rivalry is affecting his brother, Toby concedes defeat and informs Shadow Bonnie he had won, causing him to shrink down to his initial size. This causes Toby to realize that Shadow Bonnie has a weakness, and thus, can be defeated.
Believing victory now lies in admitting defeat, Toby returns to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and Games, enters the out of order Hide and Seek and turns on the game to forfeit. As the game prompts him to continue or give in, Toby suffers a relapse of his need to finally win at something, hits continue, and rams his back into the pegs in the wall. Shadow Bonnie forcefully detaches himself while Toby bleeds out from the pegs puncturing his back.

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.
- It is commonly believed that Shadow Bonnie is a ghost who attached himself to the Hide and Seek game, similar to how Andrew attached himself to the man that made him suffer. This is supported by how they both appear as shadows and become very hostile if they are disturbed.
- It is also possible that he is a being made of pure agony, or is at least a angry spirit that feeds on negative emotions.
- He is the first character from Fnaf 2 to make an appearance in the Fazbear Frights series.
