All Original Five Nights at Freddy’s Characters

Wanting to get to know the originals of Five Night's at Freddy's? Do so at your own risk!

The fandom for Five Nights at Freddy's shows no signs of slowing down. Whether it be exploring theories within the community itself or watching the countless videos done on the franchise by Game Theory, it's a horror title that was definitely worth the Kickstarter that set it off! To pay tribute, here are the original characters from FNAF!

There are four main characters in the original game, but we have included two bonus/honorary mention characters as well as they are directly tied to the four OG scary bears.

Of course, we had to start the list off with the animatronic whose name is in the title of the game! Freddy Fazbear is the head 'tronic and mascot of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. In the early hours of the morning he has taken to tracking down any humans left in the restaurant and attempting to put them in animatronic suits.

They of course don't survive, because you know, humans are quite soft and squishy really!

Spoiler: This is actually all down to the fact that a man called William Afton; who is the co-founder of Fazbear Entertainment murdered children in the pizzeria, and their spirits are what now haunt the animatronics to seek revenge for what happened to them. Creepy stuff, eh?

Bonnie is the guitarist from the animatronic band which happily plays to the customers during the day. By night, however, he turns into a human stuffing monster, searching for people to shove into animatronic suits much like his bud Freddy.

Chica is the lady animatronic of the group as well as the back up singer in the house band of the pizzeria. She is also objectively one of the creepiest mascots to see at night walking around the restaurant! Once again, looking for some good old humans to do some stuffing with.

Poor Foxy is a discontinued animatronic within the pizzeria, but let's think about this logically for a second... who wants a fox pirate coming after their pizza anyway?! Well, in any case Foxy is much like his 'tronic buddies in the way that he'll gladly come to get you after hours if you're not careful.

Cupcake is actually a part of Chica's tray as she is quite the foodie! But we decided to put him on the list anyway as he seems to be such a fan favorite! The community have taken to calling him Carl the Cupcake, always gotta be a Carl...

Endo is what the other four original bears are comprised of, an endoskeleton! So, we also had to include him on this list as well as he is naturally inside all of the other animatronics, except for Carl... he's got no skeleton.
