- While all of the player characters get points for badassery, the nameless Fazbear's Fright guard takes the cake. Unlike all of the other playable characters, they have no Phone Guy to help them in any meaningful way (Phone Dude just gives the basics of the systems and the original is simply giving backstory.) They're not told to close the doors (obviously, they can't), nor to use a mask (they don't have one). All they know is that there's an animatronic in the building that their boss has lost track of, not even if it's active or not. Nevertheless, they proceed to successfully track it down, devise a way to use the systems available to keep it away and consistently outmaneuver what is arguably the most dangerous (in the very least, the smartest) animatronic in the series (Prior to the reveal of the Nightmare Animatronics) for five whole nights. No prep time, no briefing, no screw-ups. A perfect run, first try.
- Scott gets one for the road to the True Ending, as he plays the greatest mindgame of all with us in this one: Golden Freddy himself. In Five Nights at Freddy's 2, we were certain that Golden Freddy had been the suit the murderer wore, proving its physical existence in the plot as more than a hallucination that Mike suffered. Suddenly, we have another golden suit. Things aren't so clear, anymore. And Phone Guy confirms that the "Spring Bonnie" suit had gone missing, proving that was the Murderer's tool of the trade. However, you can't let this fool you into dismissing the yellow bear. The mystery of Golden Freddy has to be resolved in order to reach the true ending; his was the sole animatronic suit that wasn't broken by the Murderer when he was cornered. After thirty years, you have to finally track down and put the soul of the child in Golden Freddy to rest through minigames in order to bring it all to an end.
- Successfully completing the mini-games through Night 5 reveals that the ghosts of the children lured the murderer into Springtrap, only he failed to crank it properly and the animatronic collapsed with him still inside the suit, killing him. Years after he brutally slaughtered five defenseless children, the villain is ultimately done in by his own method of murder. Poetic justice at its finest.
- And doubling as a twisted Heartwarming Moment, the kids have finally gotten their justice. After three decades of mindlessly killing night guards in their quest for revenge, they have finally put an end to the real killer. With their deaths avenged, they can finally move on and rest in peace.
- For added bonus points, the Purple Man's death completely exonerates Phone Guy as the killer, as Phone Guy died before Purple Man met his end.
- The end of Night 6, aka "Nightmare Mode", possibly shows a final end to the Fazbear horror that has spanned at least 40 years, as Fazbear's Fright was undone by the shoddy wiring in its electronics and burned to the ground before it was ever opened to the public, taking nearly everything with it and what remained being sold at a public auction.
- What makes it even better is that the newspaper clipping says that 'foul play isn't ruled out' when talking about why the place burned down. It's entirely possible that the new guard (or someone else) figured out what happened and set the place on fire themselves in order to end the madness and finally let those kids rest.
- If you get the Good Ending and successfully complete Night 6, not only are the children's spirits freed and their murderer killed in the most poetic fashion, but Springtrap, and the murderous spirit that may have inhabited it, is destroyed in the fire, preventing him from ever harming another soul. Now that's a sweet victory.
- Brightening the Nightmare Mode newspaper◊ reveals that some items — including Springtrap — survived, either escaping the fire or being sold at public auction.
- Not to worry, though. Springtrap gets roasted again the same year (in-universe), and this time, he actually dies.
- Well, until he gets revived again.
- These animatronics were apparently durable and strong enough to force grown men painfully into spare suits filled with cross-beams and wires... and in a truly villainous example of nightmarish awesome, William Afton/the Murderer dismantled them all by hand, with no indication on-screen of any tools. Give the asshole some credit: that is quite a feat in-universe.
- "It's Time To Die" by DAGames. It is quite fitting, particularly when you know who is inside the suit. Warning: Coarse Language.
- The Purple Man's Death is on the Nightmare Fuel page for a good reason, but at the same time, it's just so satisfying to hear the child murderer get his comeuppance.
- The ghost that used to be in Freddy even fires off a parting "fuck you!" by playing Toreador one last time.
- "Our Little Horror Story" by Aviators, which tells of Springtrap's point of view of the events of FNAF 3. Description has spoilers of the game.
- "Salvaged" by NateWantsToBattle is a really cool Villain Song, and "Nightmare" more melancholy the acoustic version even more so.
- DAGames made another amazing song "I'm the Purple Guy". It also hints that Springtrap summoned the Phantoms in the first place.
- DAGames' third song, "I'm Not Here All Night", is downright epic and pretty heartwarming. It is about the Phone Guy addressing and instructing the night guards throughout all three games how to survive and telling them to stay "very, very wary" as the nights go on as if he is a sort of guardian to them.
- The Living Tombstones made their third song, "Die in a Fire". An upbeat song, to contrast with the lyrics.
- And this "Remix" makes it a Techno-mashup!
- Just to get back to the original challenge roots, Ferno Games modded a Custom Night mode that makes the AI difficulty adjustable just like all the other games. This makes 8/20 runs possible.
- This fan voice recording for Springtrap, I Can Break You. Also doubles as Nightmare Fuel. Warning, spoilers on who Springtrap really is.
- JackSepticEye survives the first two nights without a single death, just making it to 6 AM when Springtrap was peeking through the door.
- In another case of Character Development, PewDiePie burned through all five nights in only two videos, brushing off jumpscares with an unamused remark or an obviously fake and monotonous scream.
- Taste Gaming has conquered Aggressive (the hard mode) without using any other cheats on cam. See his run here.
- Watch Girls Play made it through night four in their third FNAF 3 playthrough video. However, what makes this awesome is two things. First, after losing several times at 2am up to 4am, Drea still manages to make it past the night after assuming she'd made a mistake and the process was going to repeat. Second, Sydney pulled one of the most awesome moves any FNaF player has ever pulled off. Springtrap was literally right in front of her, he was doing his jumpscare and just as his roar was ending, the time flipped to 6am.
