  • The ending. Cassette Man lures the last few animatronics left into a trap and burns the place to the ground. The Fazbear nightmare is over after so long. No more possessions, no more haunted animatronics, no more night guards or children getting murdered behind the scenes.
    Cassette Man: This place will not be remembered, and the memory of everything that started this can finally start to fade away, as the agony of every tragedy should.
    • The Insanity Ending adds another layer to this: The hidden recording you can play is titled "HRY2023", and it has Cassette Man talking about how his creations were used for evil. Cassette Man is Henry, who, in this universe, decided to take action and put an end to William's evil, in a single event that invokes both Driven to Suicide and Taking You with Me.

    • The way the cassette man addresses his daughter/puppet.
    • The way he says "I am nearby" in his final speech sounds like he could be trying to reassure Michael that he won't be Dying Alone; that he'll have more than the animatronics for company in his final moments.
  • Since the player is in charge of the location this time around, this means that the player can go out of their way to ensure safety — buying sanitation equipment as soon as possible, using safety straps to make some of the more unstable attractions safe, play-testing the machines to ensure they aren't dangerous, and generally taking every step possible to make sure the kids are safe during the day. As the Grand Finale for the franchise, the impossible finally happened: A Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria opened up that is entirely safe. Even when the whole pizzeria burns down at the end, it's never said that anyone was in there except for the ones Henry and Michael intended to off — themselves and the animatronics. So even after this new Freddy's burned to the ground it still managed to take a grand total of zero innocent lives - which is something that possibly only Fazbear's Fright was able to achieve (accidentally anyway).
    • Not only that, with this in mind this final incarnation of the restaurant may have also ensured that at the very least, the legacy of the lead characters will have ended on a positive note. Freddy, Foxy, Chica and Bonnie's final incarnations, the Rockstars, have nothing to do with William's plans. They look friendlier, there's no real hint of uncanny valley since their marketing material in-game seems to fully admit they're mechanical, and one of the lawsuits implies they're programmed to recognize signs of distress in patrons and do what they can to help.

  • A meta example: after the Good Ending, the end credits roll. Under the section titled "Testers" (for the game), there are only two names: Ian Cawthon and Braden Cawthon.
  • Another meta example: the game is dedicated to all the fans. Given extra meaning when you consider that the game is available for free.
  • The mere existence of Helpy. He's the only unambiguously (though only canonically) good incarnation of Freddy. It's really refreshing and heartwarming every time you see him doing his Happy Dance.
  • The narrator admitting in the Golden Ending that the entire game was Fazbear Entertainment attempting to atone for past mistakes. If you believe him, anyway.
  • A meta example: now that we know that the puppet was female (probably this universe's version of Charlie from the novels, TryHardNinja asked SailorUrLove to do a cover more fitting the character's gender... and then turned out a duet version.

These characters will live on. In the hearts of kids, these characters will live on.

How well does it match the trope?
