“You listening? Okay.
There’s this guy named “William”
That moved from England to a town called “Hurricane” with his wife and three kids
that meets this guy named Henry
And the two of them form a friendship and open up a diner and pizzeria called “Fredbear’s Family Diner”
Now the money is tight
So to save on cash, he and Henry come up with these animatronic mascots that can be cranked open to work as suits.
Seems pretty smart, right?
See, if the springlocks get loose on these suits
they turn back into animatronics and crush the person in them
Anyway gettin ahead of myself here.
Basically this William guy’s bad news.
See, one day Henry’s daughter Charli is havin a birthday party at the diner
the other kids are mean, though,
and they lock her outside.
What does William do when he sees this?
He fricken drags her out into the alley and kills her! That’s what he does!
Now, Henry built this safety puppet to watch over his daughter.
But the puppet was stuck inside a box while this was happening.
When the puppet gets out, it goes outside to try and protect her.
But it’s rainin so the fricken animatronic breaks down too.
So what happens is that Charli’s spirit actually inhabits the animatronic puppet.
And buddy? That is just the tip of the iceberg.
See William’s older son Michael is a real jerk to his younger son Evan.
On Evan’s birthday in 1983, they go to the diner
and Michael actually shoves Evan into Fredbear’s mouth!
Fricken crazy, right?
So the springlocks fail and Fredbear chomps Evan’s head.
Putting him into a coma and then killing him a few weeks later.
This here is the breaking point for William.
The guy starts putting on the Spring Bonnie suit and luring kids into the back room.
Once he gets them back there, he fricken kills them.
He does this five times before getting caught.
Thing is, though, nobody can find the bodies so William gets let off the hook.
As it turns out, he hides the bodies inside of the animatronics.
Now Charli, since her spirit is inside the puppet,
She starts putting the kids’ spirits into the animatronics they were stuffed in.
so right now, the puppet
Chica the chicken
Bonnie the Bunny
Foxy the Pirate
An unused Golden Freddy Fazbear
and the original Fredbear all have the ghosts of children in them.
After this missin children incident,
William gets fired from his own company.
That doesn’t stop him, though.
His new solo company Afton Robotics
Start work for this new company called Circus Baby’s Pizza World
There, William starts makin these robots that are designed to kill kids.
Well, as it turns out, William figured out how to be immortal.
See, when kids die, they produce this material called remnant
You can basically use this remnant stuff to keep your soul inside of somethin.
William figures this out after killin those first five kids.
So now he starts tryin to use it for his own good.
Problem is, even though his younger son is dead and his older son is moved out
William still has his daughter Elizabeth with him
William makes this really cool animatronic called Circus Baby
who can dance, sing, make ice cream, and do a whole bunch of other cool stuff.
When his daughter Elizabeth gets too close to Baby,
Her child capturing mechanism activates.
So now that two of William’s 3 kids are dead by his own hand,
William pretty much loses it here.
He kills his wife and puts her into another machine called Belora.
All this doesn’t last very long though.
See, Circus Baby’s Pizza World closed before it even had the chance to open.
Now William is all alone and on the loose.
Now it’s 1987
There’s a new fazbear pizza in a new location.
They have all the old suits with the dead kids in em in the back room
But now they’ve got these new animatronics that are not only safer
but also have facial recognition software to detect criminals.
This is all in case William comes back, y’see.
So anyway, since none of the springlock suits are at this location,
William instead uses the golden freddy suit since it’s broken, unused, and mostly empty.
He kills another five kids,
which go into toy freddy
toy foxy, which we call “the mangle”
and balloon boy.
Oh, I should mention:
Charli’s here again too, for some reason.
Unlike the rest of the 1983 animatronics,
which are unused in the back,
Charli’s puppet is still used by the prize counter.
So anyway, this is the SECOND missing children incident.
Now the place gets closed down, but before they do that, they have one last party on November the 13th, 1987
I fricken lose my frontal lobe to mangle and die a few weeks later, but that’s not important.
What’s important here is that the new restaurant closed down.
So now it’s some time after 1987.
William somehow gets a message out to his son Michael
that his sister and mom and trapped inside some animatronics
at the new closed down Circus Baby’s Pizza World
and that he needs to set them free.
Since the whole building is automated,
they think that he’s an employee.
So Michael works at the building for a week while the building is attempting to reopen
until he gets tricked by the animatronics into getting scooped.
See, what happens is that,
during the week, all the robots in the facility tear themselves apart
and reform themselves into a giant mass called “Ennard.”
Ennard brings Michael to the scooper where he gets injected with remnant.
Then his organs get scooped out and Ennard uses him as a skin suit in order to escape the facility.
After the robots escape and Michael is reanimated as a walkin corpse,
he vows to find his father and end all this suffering.
The first place he tries is the new Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza that opens in 1993.
This reopening is the original location of Fredbear’s family diner,
and uses the original cast of Freddy, Foxy, Chica, and Bonnie.
They even refit golden Freddy, but they never use him.
Since Michael was blacklisted after getting his brother killed,
He uses a fake name, Mike Schmidt,
to get a job at the new place.
However, after a week of working,
with all the animatronics trying to kill him,
thinking that he’s his father,
he gets fired and the place shuts down.
Michael wouldn’t find his father until 2023 with “Fazbear Fright,” but before that happens,
we need to talk about what happened to William.
See, William DOES come back to the original location.
He knows that the kids are all alive inside the animatronics,
and he can’t have that,
so he goes to the building after it’s been shut down to try and dismantle them.
See, all Fazbear locations include a hidden room that is off the map and invisible to animatronics for storage,
also for springlock failure victims to bleed out so that the children don’t see.
William hides in this room, coming out to dismantle the animatronics until he tears down all five of them.
However, once he does this, the ghosts manifest
and attack William, forcing him to hide inside a spring bonnie suit that’s been rotting in the room since 1983.
He puts it on and laughs at them, but then the springlocks fail and he gets crushed.
Since William has been injecting himself with remnant for years,
he comes back to life after getting crushed by the suit,
but he doesn’t have any will of his own, being locked in the room until 2023.
In 2023, an amusement park opens up a scary attraction called “Fazbear Fright”
which uses a bunch of old Fazbear artifacts from the old locations as a horror attraction.
They find this old Spring Bonnie suit in the hidden room and transport him to Fazbear Fright,
where Michael is working!
This is the moment he’s been waitin for!
After a week of working at the location,
Michael uses the faulty wiring in the building as an excuse to set fire to it,
Killing William once and for all and freeing the remaining trapped souls,
who have also been haunting Michael for the week he was working there,
or so he thought.
As it turns out,
William survives the fire, rebuilds himself with the leftover parts that were inside the building,
and escapes to kill some more.
Now we have the puppet,
and William all off on their own in the world.
Ennard gets tired of Elizabeth controlling them,
so they kick Elizabeth out,
and she rebuilds herself as a new version of Baby,
Now called “Scrap Baby.”
Ennard then dons a new mask and calls themselves molten Freddy,
who also happens to have the spirits of the five children from the toy animatronics in it now.
This is where Henry steps in.
Once Henry learns of the suffering that has been happening,
He devises a plan to bring the animatronics all together in one place so he can destroy and free them all,
and creates an animatronic called “Lefty,”
which he uses to capture his daughter.
When Michael finds out about all this, he goes to the new fake “Pizzeria” and brings all of the animatronics back together.
Once they’re all there, Henry locks the building and burns it all down with him and Michael still in it,
freeing the remaining souls of:
and the remaining children inside of Molten Freddy.
After this, William’s soul is sent to Hell,
where the souls of the children he tortured get to torture HIM for all eternity.
…or so they think.
See, some time before being killed,
William uses his genius to scratch his consciousness and memories into binary code onto some of the electrical components of some animatronics.
The problem with Henry’s plan is that Fazbear Entertainment wasn’t all in his own hands,
and was actually still running as its own company at this point.
See, some time during the events of the games,
An anonymous game developer was hired by Fazbear Entertainment to create the fnaf games as a way of making the real stories seem like fiction.
After that, they then hired a different company called “Silver Parasol games”
to create the “Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience”
to make it seem as if the previous games were rogue and to double discredit the real stories of the children getting killed.
The problem, though, is that Fazbear Entertainment provided Silver Parasol with some computer chips
to scan in in order to make the animatronics more realistic.
When they do this, William’s consciousness code is brought into the game,
basically bringing him back to life in the video game.
During development, this robot William, called “Glitchtrap,”
programs itself to be able to take over a tester’s body,
essentially bringing William Afton back to life.
William is first able to control a developer named “Jeremy,”
but he decided Jeremy isn’t a good candidate,
so he controls Jeremy and makes him kill himself using a guillotine paper slicer.
Glitchtrap tries to control the unnamed player of the game
but the player manages to defeat him and lock him away.
However, before this happens,
Glitchtrap finds a host named “Vanessa,”
and decides to use her.
After the Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience,
as well as an added Halloween DLC,
Fazbear Entertainment then commissions the creation of a giant mall called
Fazbear Mega Pizzaplex.
During the time that the Mega Pizzaplex was running,
multiple animatronics were switched around and the tragedies started again.
But before we go into the events that transpired there, we have to talk more about Vanessa
and another individual known as “Patient 46.”
Patient 46 appears to be a tech savvy genius,
but is also at the same time a child,
according to how they are treated and referred to by the various therapists that we hear their sessions from.
While it is clear that Patient 46 and Vanessa are two different people,
it is unknown for certain who patient 46 is.
What IS known is that patient 46 spends a lot of time at the Pizzaplex before the events of Security Breach
and helps reprogram the system,
Implying that they are working with “Vanny,”
Vanessa’s alter ego while under the control of William.
What else is known is that patient 46 lied about whatever happened to their family.
The 16th tape reveals that they actually had a great childhood.
Vanessa is also known to have had a terrible father named “Bill” according to tape 3.
Apparently Vanessa’s dad forced her to lie during a custody hearing between him and her mother
leading to her mother doing something afterwards,
likely committing suicide.
Anyway, the events preceeding Security Breach include
at least 9 more missing people, likely all children,
as well as multiple missing therapists who were likely killed by Vanny.
At some point, Bonnie the Bunny is replaced by a new animatronic named Montgomery Gator.
This happens following a night where Bonnie went down to Monty’s golf course and then was unseen afterwards.
Many speculate that Monty may have killed Bonnie or dismantled him in order to make his way into the main cast
but we do not know for sure.
What we do know, however, is that Monty took over Bonnie’s role in the main cast.
Roxanne Wolf, another new animatronic, also took over Foxy’s role,
but there is no given explanation for this.
after most of the animatronics have been reprogrammed,
Glamrock Freddy, the newest version of Freddy Fazbear,
malfunctions and shuts down on stage.
When he wakes up, he learns that he was put into low power mode,
likely freeing him from the reprogramming Patient 46 did to everyone else.
ALSO when he wakes up, a boy named Gregory reveals himself to be hiding inside his chest cavity.
Gregory is a homeless orphan of unknown relation to anyone else during the events of Security Breach.
Some have speculated that Patient 46 is Gregory,
But there seems to be lore differences between the two characters that conflict.
Others believer that Gregory is an animatronic himself,
as his hair and eyes are noticeably different to Vanessa,
and the book “Tales from the Pizzaplex” includes an animatronic that looks like a human child
and is about the same size as Gregory.
What more, Gregory’s vision seems to distort at times,
implying that his eyes are cameras that are receiving interference.
However, none of this is known for sure.
Gregory and Glamrock Freddy find that the Mega Pizzaplex is built on top of the fake restaurant
that was used to lure William Afton in years prior.
Vanny, using Vanessa’s body,
Located William’s corpse and reanimated him using a recharge station stolen from the Pizzaplex.
William plans to control all of the animatronics in the Pizzaplex remotely and begin to kill children again
but Gregory and Freddy stop him.
The last we see of William Afton
is him being grabbed by the spirits of the recently killed 9 people
inside of a large machine known as “The Blob.”
The game canonically ends with Gregory and Freddy escaping the Pizzaplex and relaxing on a hill.
It is likely that, with the destruction of the Pizzaplex,
Vanessa is freed from Vanny,
but we do not know for sure.
And this is where our story ends for now.
Eventually there will be more DLC and updates for Security Breach, but until that happens,
This has been the entire Five Nights at Freddy’s Game Lore.” -Scout tf2
