Five Nights At Freddy's Wiki

Plushtrap is a minor antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4. He is the plush of Springtrap. He is the only antagonist who appears in his own minigame, "Fun with Plushtrap", and does not make appearances elsewhere (other than the after-night minigames).

Although he still appears in the Halloween update, he is occasionally replaced with Nightmare Balloon Boy for the "Fun with Balloon Boy" minigame.

History

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

Plushtrap is only seen in the mini-game Fun with Plushtrap and gets more aggressive and unpredictable each time the mini-game is played. In the mini-game, Plushtrap starts in a chair at the end of a dark corridor and moves towards the player, usually entering the four rooms near him. The only way to stop him is to shine the flashlight, which will make him rapidly go back to his starting location or hide in a close room.

To win the minigame, the player must shine the flashlight when Plushtrap is stopped on the "X", Plushtrap will then permanently cease moving and the player will be granted a 2-hour bonus for the next night. If the player fails the minigame and Plushtrap is hiding in a room or still in his chair when the timer goes out, the player will receive a game over. On the other hand, if the player fails the minigame and/or Plushtrap gets too close before the timer runs out, they will be jumpscared by Plushtrap and lose the chance to win the 2-hour bonus, also causing a game over. If the player is to ever get a game over in the minigame, a bloody red screen will be triggered, with the words, "TOO BAD" placed on top of it in white text.

Plushtrap also makes an appearance in the Night 3 Minigame. In this minigame, a child can be seen holding a doll resembling Plushtrap (which her dad refers to as a "Finger Trap"). Upon approaching the girl, she will say: "Where is your plush toy? Mine is Spring Bonnie. My Daddy says I have to be careful with him or I will pinch my finger. He is a finger trap, he says."

Ultimate Custom Night

Plushtrap: He will appear on a specific screen and sit in his chair. If you don't scare him out of his chair fast enough, he will jumpscare you.
 
— Character description.

Plushtrap is one of the characters that cannot be customized on the menu screen, along with a few others. During gameplay, he can only be summoned by Dee Dee or Shadow Dee Dee in Ultimate Custom Night. If he is to be summoned, Plushtrap will appear on CAM 06 (Funtime Foxy's cove), sitting in his white wooden chair, with the same look from Five Nights at Freddy's 4. You must "scare" him out of his chair, or else a jumpscare will be awaiting you. In order to "scare" him, you must focus on CAM 06 for 1.5 to 1.6 seconds, and Plushtrap will run away, never returning the rest of the night. It was originally thought that clicking on him scares him away but that was later discovered to be false. If he is "scared" away, his chair will remain on CAM 06, remaining untouched for the rest of the night. However, if the player fails to "scare" him away in time and then he is poised to attack, he will only jumpscare the player once they lift up the monitor.

Help Wanted

Plushtrap appears in a recreation of his original minigame, Fun with Plushtrap. Not much changes here, aside from his Blacklight level where the player is smaller. The player must stop Plushtrap on the X.

Plushtrap can also appear from the prize boxes, where he will give you a jumpscare. This may sometimes send the player to the game over screen, counting as a loss.

Special Delivery

Plushtrap originally appeared in the trailer for Special Delivery, being one of the main animatronics showed off. Despite this, he was not in the game at launch.

Plushtrap's mechanic is a bit complicated; Rather than using your phone camera, it instead places you into a premade map. Unlike other animatronics, his minigame is timed; You must defeat him before he reaches you. To defeat him, you must simply charge up the boxes to your left and right using the Shock button, and get them to green; Don't hold them for too long, however, as they may get overcharged and reset, closing the box as well. To check the charge, look at the box behind you. Once they are both at green and Plushtrap is in the water puddle, simply shock him.

Appearance

Plushtrap is a plush version of Springtrap. He is similar in design to his animatronic counterpart, albeit much more cartoonish and less damaged. He also seems to be less menacing in appearance than the nine other nightmare animatronics.

Plushtrap is colored brown-green with a brownish shade on his belly and pair of three-jointed ears. He also has four fingers and three toes, which is noticeably different from most of the other nightmare animatronics, seeing as they all have five fingers and four toes (three for Nightmare Chica), making his design more similar to the original animatronics from Five Nights at Freddy's.

Plushtrap's head appears to be much larger than his body in comparison to the other animatronics, supporting the fact he is a plush. He also has many razor sharp teeth, and beady eyes. He appears to be in decent condition compared to the other nightmare animatronics, except for a few darker brown spots on his belly, and a few small rips on each part of his body.

Trivia

FNaF 4

  • Plushtrap has a nickname, "finger trap", which was given by the father of the girl holding a doll resembling Plushtrap in the parking lot, in the Night 3 minigame.
  • Plushtrap seems to have a much smaller role than most characters in the game. This also applies to Nightmare Balloon Boy.
    • In fact, he does not seem to have any role whatsoever in the story, and presumably only exists as a character for his minigame.
      • As a result, it is unknown exactly what he is or why he attacks the player, nor is it explained where his minigame actually takes place.
        • This was, however, later explained in Fazbear Frights: Fetch, appearing as a buyable toy under the name Plushtrap Chaser that chases people down in the darkness, but stops in the light.
  • Plushtrap's name was discovered by searching through the source code of Scott's site when the Plushtrap teaser was added.
    • In the teaser image of Plushtrap on scottgames.com, "Cyh", "gvh" and "gpe" are found in the source code. If decrypted and combined together as a single word, the word "Plushtrap" is revealed.
  • Plushtrap is the only antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 to not have the word "Nightmare" in his name.
  • Unlike his animatronic counterpart, Plushtrap has four fingers, while Springtrap has five.
    • This is most likely because Springtrap was a suit designed to be worn by a five-fingered human, whereas Plushtrap is only a plush toy.
  • Plushtrap's death scream is a higher pitched version of the normal death scream.
  • Plushtrap is the only antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 that can jumpscare the player but cannot end their night (if Nightmare Foxy's "jumpscare" inside the closet is not counted).
    • Plushtrap is the only non-phantom animatronic (and technically the only animatronic, as the Phantoms are hallucinations) in the entire series who has a jumpscare but does not kill the player.
  • Plushtrap is the second shortest animatronic in the entire series, after Nightmare Freddy's Freddles.
  • Plushtrap's lower endoskeleton jaw doesn't move in his jumpscare.
  • Plushtrap seems to have a noticeably different design in his teaser.
  • The scream that Plushtrap, Nightmare Balloon Boy, and Nightmare Chica's Cupcake make is actually a 1.5x sped up version of the normal scream.
  • Plushtrap seems to have a green tint at the roots of his teeth. It is unknown what this means.
    • It's possible that this is due to the lighting effect, although it may be a sign of deterioration.
    • The same goes to Nightmare Chica.
  • Plushtrap seems to have a completely different endoskeleton than any animatronic in any game. It looks more like an actual head, not a robot, like the others.
  • Before the release of Five Nights at Freddy's 4, it was commonly believed that Plushtrap was among the items auctioned after the fire of Fazbear's Fright.

Special Delivery

  • Plushtrap is currently the only character to have a Mixed Reality map, rather than being in the room with the character.
    • He is also the only character who's CPU is exclusively locked to his plushsuit.
      • It should also be noted that his Plushsuit can only drop if his corresponding CPU is inserted.
  • He is one of the few characters to have had Alert data, but not have it be used.
    • This alert data also hints at his personality, being more playful and friendly than most of the other characters.
    • Interestingly, he knows about Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, despite not being based on any of the characters there.
      • He is also the only animatronic to mention it by name.
  • Plushtrap is the only character to have been teased prior to the game's release, while not making it in.
    • However, this was due to miscommunication; According to Illumix, the Marketing team thought Plushtrap was ready for launch, despite being far from finished.
    • This also made him the longest delay between his initial reveal and his addition to the game, appearing just over Eleven months since his original teaser.
      • However, he has since been overtaken by Funtime Freddy, and will be demoted to third when Lefty arrives
  • It should be noted that, despite having sounds, Plushtrap cannot charge nor haywire within his natural encounter.

Errors

  • When sitting on the X, Plushtrap's left hand appears to clip through his foot.
  • In the first frame of Plushtrap sitting down in front of his chair, his lower jaw clips into his upper torso.

Frost Plushtrap is a skin in Five Nights at Freddy's: Special Delivery, introduced in the Winter Wonderland event. As he is a skin, his mechanics are identical to Plushtrap.

Trivia

  • Kirin, CEO of Illumix, had said that Plushtrap was not getting a skin due to difficulties involving his mechanic. Despite this, Frost Plushtrap came out anyways.
  • In addition to Plushtrap himself, his hallway also got a skin; Rather than the normal appearance, his hallway is now covered in snow.
  • Unlike every other skin, Frost Plushtrap got two teaser messages.
  • Frost Plushtrap currently is the fastest skin release after the original character, at just under two months after Plushtrap's initial release.
