Though starting off small, the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise 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 some of these characters and the vagueness of some 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 the folders for certain characters. Since some characters are packed to the brim with spoilers, their folders/pages have no spoiler tags, so especially browse them with caution.
