A list of animatronics who were planned to be included in the Five Nights at Freddy's games but ultimately cut during production.
The unnamed beaver animatronic was a character intended to be the main antagonist of the first game. It was replaced by Freddy Fazbear due to bearing too much resemblance to Chipper from Scott's earlier game Chipper and Sons Lumber Co. Another rejected idea was to have the beaver animatronic appear as a fourth character, but was replaced by Foxy for the same reason.
The unnamed wolf animatronic was an animatronic thought up by Scott Cawthon for the first game. At the end, the concept for this character was rejected in favor of Foxy.
The blacklight animatronics (Blacklight Freddy, Blacklight Bonnie, Blacklight Chica, and Blacklight Foxy) from Funko's products that were originally intended to be in Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted. They are found in the main Hub area in the game when in blacklight mode, but are never seen by the player as the curtains for both stages are completely shut. Blacklight Bonnie is also featured in his blacklight mode Parts and Service level, though due to the lighting of the level it is hard to notice it is actually the blacklight form.
The main three animatronics' (excluding Foxy) completed textures and models exist in the files. Besides the eye texture, a texture for Blacklight Foxy's main body is completely missing from the files.
Inside the Help Wanted files, a leftover and untextured model for Springtrap can be found. Said model is also labeled "
The model has no physical differences between itself and Springtrap, with the exception of a small stitch-like indent on the upper left-hand side of his torso. It may be possible that this was supposed to be the original Glitchtrap, as it is the origin of Glitchtrap's name, but this is uncertain.
Babytrap in Help Wanted was meant to serve as Plushtrap's replacement for his Dark Rooms level segment in blacklight mode. The only evidence to support Babytrap's existence is that her name and instructions are found deep within the text string files. It is entirely possible that Babytrap was quickly scrapped for Plushbaby.
In the Curse of Dreadbear DLC game files for Help Wanted, there is a different texture for the Freddles that is left unused. They were apparently supposed to be for the "Build-a-Mangle" segment in the Spooky Mansion level (presumably Hard Mode which is not available for the Curse of Dreadbear campaign). The texture appears to look burnt, thus the name Burnt Freddles were given.
- On October 2014, Scott Cawthon confirmed that the first game's cut animatronic characters will return in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. As it seems possible that Balloon Boy and the Puppet in the second game are the animatronics cut from the first game, Scott stated in his 4th anniversary interview with Dawko that the unnamed beaver and the wolf animatronic are the first game's scrapped animatronics. Currently, it is not clearly known if Scott really planned to have the beaver and the wolf animatronic come back but ultimately declined, or intending to have BB and the Puppet included in the first game while the beaver and the wolf animatronics are merely rejected concepts before choosing Foxy.
