Characters / Five Nights at Freddy's

Go To

Though starting off small, Five Nights at Freddy's has greatly expanded its list of characters. Pity that nearly all of them are trying to kill you though.

Don't take everything here at face value. Because of a lack of proper information surrounding these characters and the vagueness of the information we do have, some of these tropes can be a tad speculative.

Beware of spoilers. More than half these characters are tied to the franchise's backstory with some of them only showing up in said backstory. As a result, many characters on this page and the subpages are Walking Spoilers, so tread carefully if you don't want to be spoiled. Also be aware that none of the trope titles are (or will be) spoiler-tagged and most of the pages won't have a separate section for the cast that are spoiler heavy, so be extra careful when navigating folders for certain characters. Since some are packed to the brim with spoilers their folders/pages have no spoiler tags, so especially browse them with caution.
