Five Nights At Freddy's Wiki

Fredbear is a posthumous animatronic and the original mascot of Fredbear's Family Diner, and the cause of the Bite of 1983.


Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Fredbear is first mentioned as the mascot of Fredbear's Family Diner by Phone Guy.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Fredbear appears for the first time in "Five Nights at Freddy's 3" during one of the easter egg minigames entitled Stage01, and is controlled by the player. Phone Guy (via the employee training tapes) mentions that there are two springlock suits, and that one of them is specifically a Spring Bonnie suit. The other suit is speculated to be Fredbear's, and it is heavily emphasized in the next game.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

Fredbear was seen inside Fredbear's Family Diner alongside Spring Bonnie in 1983, being used as an animatronic and a suit. Eventually, on the Crying Child's birthday, the boy is thrown into Fredbear's jaw's while he is singing. This causes the animatronic to malfunction, chomping the mouth down and crushing the Child's head.

He appears in Nightmare form in the main gameplay as Nightmare Fredbear.

Ultimate Custom Night

Fredbear can be summoned by only using Withered Golden Freddy at 1, and using the Death Coin on him. This will lead to a jumpscare. Fredbear resembles the FNaF 1 Golden Freddy with purple hat and bow tie.

  • Fredbear may be named after Scott Cawthon's original name for Freddy: "Freddybear".
  • Fredbear bears a strong resemblance to Golden Freddy, to the point many fans have believed them to be the same
    • There is actually rather strong evidence against this, however;
      • For one detail, Five Nights at Freddy's 3 contains a minigame containing Golden Freddy as well as Spring Bonnie on stage, featuring a Black bowtie and a Brown tophat. On the other hand, Fredbear has a Glowing Purple tophat and bowtie.
      • Posters for Fredbear's Family Diner contain Golden Freddy, confirming directly that they both co-existed as mascots of the location, and thus aren't the same animatronic.
  • It was believed by some that the incident that Fredbear caused was the Bite of 87. Despite this, it was indirectly confirmed that this incident was the Bite of 83.
  • Fredbear is the only animatronic from Fazbear Entertainment that was never discovered and reused for Fazbear's Fright. It was technically unknown what happened to his suit after years when the diner shuts down, but it was assumed that his suit could be entirely lost.
  • Fredbear's voice lines from Ultimate Custom Night were actually re-used from Freddy, although heavily modified to where his voice actor, Kellen Goff, doesn't even know which take was used.
  • Its thought that Fredbear is Henry’s main suit.


Nightmare Fredbear (also known as Nightmare Golden Freddy) is an animatronic serving as the main antagonist in the game Five Nights at Freddy's 4. He is the nightmarish incarnation of Golden Freddy.


Nightmare Fredbear will only become active on Night 5. Every other Nightmare will cease activity, leaving him as the lone enemy.

He will approach from either hallway, with a deep laugh signifying movement. He can be seen in the hallway with the flashlight, however will not move out of sight. If he is seen in the hallway, the player must close the door and wait for his laugh. Only then can they move away from the door. He will appear on the bed as just a head, and will jumpscare the player if they do not use the light to deter him. He will also appear in the closet, and the player must shut the door to get rid of him.
