* GameplayAndStorySegregation: The hiding spots under the desk and in the toilet are only available at select story moments, and cannot be accessed during the "survive the night" section, even though they'd probably make the best hiding spots.

* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: While all other animatronics move the way you'd expect them to, the Puppet glides along the floor, as if moving on ropes hanging from the ceiling - not to mention its usual problem of not having an endoskeleton.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: One of the casette tapes at the start of the game mentions that the pizzeria's manager intends to start sending the security guards on patrols in pairs and have them armed - while not telling any of them why.
* LuckBasedMission: The final section, where you have to follow a trail of clues, has you stalked by [[spoiler:Fredbear himself]]. After a certain point the animatronic seems to teleport, and has a random chance of appearing right behind you, forcing you to re-do the section from the start.

* StoryBreadcrumbs: In the first section of the game you can find a number of casette tapes from the restaurant's heyday. While most seem to be interviews with the clients about what the pizzeria means to them, several give early clues as to the troublesome events such as missing guards and a dangerous man in a purple shirt hanging around the place.

[[caption-width-right:350:Are you ready to break into Freddy's?]]

It's the middle of the night as Thomas' phone calls, waking him up. It's his friend, Chris, and he wants Thomas to accompany him and his two buddies, Richard and Ashley, to a long-closed restaurant they used to hang out at. The reason? Chris suspects there was something sinister behind the place's closure twenty six years prior, and seeks to break in under the cover of night and find some evidence. Thomas begrudgingly goes along with the plan, but as he and his companions explore the half-rotten restaurant, the others begin to disappear, until Thomas is left all alone... or is he?

Oh, and the restaurant's name? ''Fazbear and Friends Pizzeria''.
