Nightmare Fuel / Five Nights at Freddy's: The Twisted Ones

Go To

As this is a Nightmare Fuel page, spoilers will be left unmarked. You Have Been Warned!

Once again, the nightmares from Freddy Fazbear's Pizza don't stop. Though this time, it may involve some actual Nightmares, and these ones are twisted beyond comprehension.


  • The fact the cover of the book features Nightmare, the secret animatronic from Five Nights at Freddy's 4. It seems that the book will involve the Nightmare animatronics. Whether or not this means they're Real After All isn't clear, though it's likely that Nightmare is the one stalking Charlie as mentioned in the description.
    • The release of the book josses this entirely, as Nightmare doesn't appear in the book at all.
  • And now, as of June 11, 2017, we have this (which is also this page's image) at by LadyFiszi, a popular fan artist who helped Scott on the merchandise. Is this just Scott being Scott? Or a hint to something... darker?
    • Oh, that's not the only picture on there. People have found other pics so far, including the Twisted wolf animatronic and Twisted Bonnie, which looks like something straight out of Dead Space.
    • But, one has to wonder...who and what is the wolf animatronic? Is it something from Freddy's, another sister location...or something more?
    • And now there's Twisted Foxy on the site, too, and appears to be buried below ground...yet, what we can see of him is still a horrific sight to see, with holes all around his suit, his hook emerging from a mound of flesh, and two rows of teeth.
  • And now suddenly, the site "crashed" and now has static as its image. This does not bode well...
  • The Scholastic Book Fair trailer is pretty creepy with Twisted Freddy rising from the crater, a shot of a foggy forest with static all over the place and a brief clip of one of the lines of the book "Don't trust your eyes". The narration helps enhance the mood.

The novel:

  • The Twisted animatronics themselves. William created animatronics that, unlike the ones from the old pizzeria, were specifically designed to kidnap people, and kill them in a similar fashion to the springlock suits. These abominations also have a series of disks built into them that release a noise that alters a person's natural disposition to the animatronics. Due to their experiences in the previous book, Charlie and her friends see the robots as disturbing monstrosities, but anyone blissfully unaware of the dark past of Freddy's would see them as a friendly mascot, especially children.
    • These monstrosities have quite a body count, as the plot starts when several bodies with the aforementioned springlock injuries are found in various places, ranging from the middle of the road to even nearby their own homes. Imagine being ambushed by one of these things in the middle of the night...
  • Though he is taken out rather quickly, Twisted Foxy ambushing Charlie and John at the former's old house.
  • Clay having the old animatronics stored in the basement of his home. Sure, they're on the protagonists side this time, but it must be unnerving living with these things that are fullly capable of sneaking up and killing you.
  • As a means to get closer to the source of the killings, Charlie lets herself get captured inside Twisted Freddy's stomach. Imagine being cramped inside the malicious machine, knowing you could die by being crushed at any moment.
