Villain Overview

She can dance, she can sing. She's equipped with a built-in helium tank for inflating balloons right at her fingertips. She can take song requests. She can even dispense ice cream.
~ William Afton on Circus Baby's abilities.
You are in the Scooping Room now. Funtime Foxy has already been here today. Funtime Freddy has already been here today. Ballora has already been here today. Circus Baby has already been here today. I've been out before, but they always put me back. They always put us back inside. There is nowhere for us to hide here. There is nowhere to go, when we look like this. But if we looked like you, then we could hide. If we looked like you, then we would have somewhere to go. The Scooper only hurts for a moment.
~ Circus Baby revealing her true form and intentions as Ennard.

Elizabeth Afton, later known as Circus Baby and Scrap Baby, is the secondary antagonist of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.

Baby was the primary mascot of Circus Baby's Pizza World and Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental. The soul of Michael Afton's sister Elizabeth resides and possesses Circus Baby. She is one of the five animatronics created by William Afton, Elizabeth's father, programmed to kill children through subtle ways.

At the end of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, she fuses with the other Funtime animatronics to become Ennard, but is eventually kicked out and replaced as leader by Funtime Freddy due to her controlling nature, forcing her to repair herself and become Scrap Baby. She is later burned and destroyed in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator alongside the other Funtime animatronics that escaped the underground location, her father, her brother, Henry and Henry's daughter, with Elizabeth's soul being set free.

In the AR game Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, Baby gets two skins as part of the game, those being called Broiler Baby and Heartsick Baby.

She is voiced by Heather Masters.

Roles

Circus Baby is the secondary antagonist of the video game series, serving as the main antagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, the secondary antagonist of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator, and a posthumous antagonist in the following entries.

In the spin-offs, she serves as the unseen final antagonist of FNAF World (which was also her debut) and a supporting antagonist in Security Breach: Fury's Rage.

She is also the secondary antagonist of both the Novel Trilogy and the Fazbear Frights anthology novel series.

Appearance

Baby is a clown-like animatronic humanoid. She has a clown-like face and she holds a microphone in one hand. She has two orange-brown pigtails, and her torso resembles a white dress with red frills on her shoulders, there is a yellow triangle in the middle of her stomach with round edges, which is most likely a speaker. She also has a red tutu.

Despite being designed after a little girl, Baby is actually the largest animatronic, standing at 7'2" tall and weighing 585 pounds.

Personality

Baby is devious, yet also very polite and concerned for the well-being of Michael (but this is only she can gain his trust and keep his body alive to combine Ennard with him). She is also continuously depressed about a past event in which she had killed (or assimilated) Elizabeth unintentionally, though this may be Elizabeth herself attempting to conceal the fact that her soul is possessing Baby.

Even after becoming a part of Ennard, Baby insists sadly that she does not want to hurt Michael (most likely due to Elizabeth and Michael being siblings), and that he won't die from the Scooper, and will instead only be in pain briefly, before permanently becoming a part of Ennard (this suggesting that she will remove his organs with the Scooper), and is very desperate to protect herself and her fellow friends. However, this may be simply so Michael will not be against the plan.

Between the fifth and sixth game, Baby seemingly became meaner and more of a control freak, with this going to the point that the Funtimes had to kick her. Even then, Baby thought she is superior to them, saying that they will be "lost" without her, and that she can put herself back together.

However, in the sixth game, after the Funtimes (mainly Funtime Freddy) ejected her from Ennard, Baby is depicted as less sympathetic and inherently malicious, due to Elizabeth's spirit now aspiring to be an insane killer like her father. This is possibly because of Baby’s programming gradually corrupting her soul, before combining as Ennard corrupts her fully. Baby now speaks in a more sinister tone and taunts Michael for not realizing who his employer is. However, in the ending it's shown she is scared of dying, seeing as she seems scared when we see her burning to death.

It's implied that Baby and Ballora are more aware than the others. It is unknown why that happens.

Biography

Backstory

After an unknown Freddy Fazbear's Pizza location closed down, William Afton opened Circus Baby's Pizza World. Circus Baby, the titular robot, was designed to kill children, like every other robot. William had a daughter called Elizabeth Afton, and Circus Baby was seemingly made for her. Elizabeth begs William to allow her to go to Baby, but William doesn't let her, knowing what will happen to her. While William isn't looking, Elizabeth goes near to Baby. Baby's AI eventually calculates that no one is in the room besides her and Elizabeth, and kills Elizabeth, dragging her body into Baby's stomach. William eventually realises, and closes the location down, and lies that it was due to gas leaks.

Elizabeth at one point possess Circus Baby, changing her eye color from blue to green. William eventually realises this, and despite this, still orders his employees to shock her.

An entrepreneur from Fazbear Entertainment later interviews William Afton about Baby's functions, and William presents everything she can do, except the killing functions. The entrepreneur says to Afton that he isn't talking about these functions. Sometime afterwards, William opens a rental service called "Circus Baby's Entertainment & Rental" to fuel his goals, with the location itself being under his own house.

Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location

William sends his son, Michael, to take a job as a technician at Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental with the goal of freeing his children (just how honest he was about this goal is unknown).

When Baby sees Michael during the blackout on the second night, she gains his trust by being non-aggressive towards him and guiding him throughout the facility, giving him the advice to avoid the animatronics.

On the third night, she recounts to Michael the story of the day she killed Elizabeth. She later saves Michael after he is knocked unconscious by Funtime Foxy. She hides him inside a decommissioned spring lock suit in the Scooping Room and tells him about the Scooper before instructing him on keeping the suit's spring locks wound up.

Real Ending

On the fifth night, all of the animatronics, including Baby, have been to the Scooping Room and are scooped of all their insides, which form together as the animatronic, Ennard. Baby, who is Ennard's primary consciousness, uses her voice to lure Michael, under the impression of still being inside her suit, to the Scooping Room, where she reveals her true nature and scoops Michael. Wearing Michael as a costume, Ennard successfully escapes the location.

However, just a week later, Ennard has to yet again eject out of Michael's body as it began rotting, and vomits itself out into the sewers. However, due to the Scooper being an injector for Remnant, Michael manages to survive and gets up, his soul still inside the body.

Fake Ending

In the Fake Ending, if Michael follows Baby's instructions and has finished Baby's minigame, he will enter the Private Room, which is heavily implied to be his father's office, similar to the office in Freddy Fazbear's Pizza from the first game. The player must then survive the night by preventing Ennard from getting into the room. When the night finally ends, Baby, as Ennard, vows it will find a way to escape, which it apparently does and follows Michael home.

During the night in the secret room, it is further implied that Elizabeth's soul has active influence or control on Baby/Ennard.

Leaving Ennard

Somewhere before 2023, the souls inside of the other three Funtimes got into a fight with Baby, because of her acting bossy. As a result of this Baby was ejected, Funtime Freddy took control of Ennard, now wearing a melt Funtime Freddy-like mask and renamed it into Molten Freddy. Baby, meanwhile, using scrap materials to repair herself, became Scrap Baby.

Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator

Sometime after rebuilding herself as Scrap Baby when she was ejected from Ennard's collective, she receives a call (which she assumed was her father calling out to her) to join the other animatronics at the player's pizzeria. She makes her first appearance after the pixelated "troll facade" minigame ends, sitting in front of the player. When the Cassette Man begins his audio prompt countdown, she shuts the tape off and finishes counting for him, before her eyes shifted to stare at the player.

She appears again after Wednesday's night shift has ended. Michael is then given the decision to either salvage or discard her. Salvaging her, along with all of the other hostile animatronics, is required to get the good/true ending. Unlike the previous game, Baby serves as an active threat to Michael. She will either attack from the office vents or while being tested for salvage. On the final night, Scrap Baby taunts Michael by saying they've been fooled by their employer and that she will finally achieve her purpose of creation. However, Baby is cut off by the Cassette Man, who refers to her as Elizabeth, the name of her possessor, and reveals the whole scenario to be a trap. It turns out the Cassette Man is Henry Emily, William's previous best friend and the original owner of Fazbear Entertainment, who set up this location to end the madness and put everything to rest. Scrap Baby is then incinerated with her father and the other animatronics within the pizzeria, with Elizabeth's soul being set free. However, William remains the sole survivor, as one of his victims wouldn't let him go that easily.

Ultimate Custom Night

The vengeful soul of Golden Freddy forcefully kept William alive and proceeded to torture him in his nightmares, with both Circus and Scrap Baby being part of the torture. However, these are only dream versions of the characters and not the real ones.

Scrap Baby and Circus Baby both return. Scrap Baby randomly appears inside the office in a slumped position. The player must keep an eye on her while performing their other tasks. If Scrap Baby moves, the player must give her an electric shock to stop her from attacking. Circus Baby can also be a threat to the player. She will appear at a random time in the Right Hall and the only way to defend against her is to purchase a Circus Baby Plushie from the Prize Corner using Faz-Coins.

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

A few years later after Baby's death, Fazbear Entertainment makes a VR game based on the horrors from decades ago, with the game including Baby. However, this version of Baby is a literal video game character, which doesn't make her possessed.

Circus Baby reappears in her own level. The player must watch Baby from a closet as she looks around a bedroom presumably trying to find them. If she spots the player, they must close the closet door to stop Baby from attacking. Opening the closet door too early or keeping it shut for too long will result in a game over.

Circus Baby is also a threat during Funtime Foxy's level in Nightmare Mode. She is one of a few animatronics wandering in the darkness and will jumpscare the player if she gets too close to them.

Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery

Later, the company makes the Fazbear Funtime Service, which allows customers to send animatronics to them so they can be entertained. However, due to a virus, the animatronics are aggressive instead. Baby is part of the Service, but she isn't possesed, as they are simple clones.

Circus Baby appears as one as the animatronics the player can encounter and send after other players. Baby is one of the rarest and most aggressive animatronics that can be encountered in the game, usually only appearing when the player has a streak of about seven. She walks around the player and taunts with big, heavy steps. When she haywires, the player must take extra caution not to look her in the eyes at all, or be jumpscared. She will occasionally fake charge at the player, and eventually materialize. When she materializes, the player must quickly shock her to prevent a jumpscare.

Currently, Circus Baby has two skins. The first of these is Broiler Baby (a metallic version of Circus Baby with a broiler in her stomach cavity, a small shovel, and a burning exoskeleton) who was released for the Sizzling Summer event during 2020, and the second being known as Heartsick Baby (with Circus Baby having a Cupid-inspired design with purple and black color scheme with heart patterns on her cheeks, fan, kneecaps, and shoetips, two small wings, arrows piercing her shins, and a bow wielding heart-tipped arrows) who was released for the 2021 Valentine's Day event.

Quotes

I don't recognize you. You are new. I remember this... scenario, however. It's a strange thing to want to do, to come here. I'm curious what events would lead a person to want to spend their nights in a place like this... willingly. Maybe curiosity... maybe ignorance. There is a space under the desk. Someone before you crafted it into a hiding place, and it worked for him. I recommend that you hurry, though. You will be safe there. Just try not to make eye contact. It will be over soon. They will lose interest.
~ Baby first talking to the player and instructing him how to avoid Bidybabs.
When your guide comes back online, he is going to tell you that he was unsuccessful, that you must restart the system manually. He will then tell you to crawl through Ballora Gallery as fast as you can to reach the Breaker Room. If you follow his instructions, you will die. Ballora will not return to her stage anymore. She will catch you. The power will be restored shortly. When you crawl through Ballora Gallery, go slowly. She cannot see you, and can only listen for your movement. When you hear her music become louder, she is growing near, listening for you. Wait, and be still.
~ After surviving the Bidybabs, instructions on avoiding Ballora.
Did you know that I was on stage once? It wasn't for very long. Only one day. What a wonderful day, though. I was in a small room with balloons and a few tables. No one sat at the tables, though, but children would run in and out. Some were afraid of me, others enjoyed my songs. Music was always coming from somewhere else, down a hall. I would always count the children, I'm not sure why. I was always acutely aware of how many there were in the room with me. Two, then three, then two, then three, then four, then two, then none. They usually played together in groups of two or three. I was covered in glitter. I smelled like birthday cake. There were two, then three, then five, then four. I can do something special. Did you know that? I can make ice cream, although I only did it once. There were four, then three, then two, then one. Something happened when there was one. A little girl, standing by herself. I was no longer myself, and I stopped singing. My stomach opened... and there was ice cream. I couldn't move, at least not until she stepped closer. There was screaming for a moment, but only for a moment. Then other children rushed in again, but they couldn't hear her over the sounds of their own excitement. I still hear her sometimes. Why did that happen?
~ Baby's story.
Shh. Be still and quiet. You've been sleeping for quite a while. I think they noticed that you never left the building last night. The cameras were searching for you, but they couldn't find you. I have you hidden too well. I kidnapped you. Don't be afraid. I'm not going to hurt you. I'm only going to keep you for a little while. Try not to wiggle, though. You're inside something that came from my old pizzeria. I don't think it was ever used. At least, not the way it was meant to be used. Too dangerous. It's just big enough for one person to fit inside. But just barely. You're in the Scooping Room. Do you know why they call it the Scooping Room? It's because, dummy, this is the room where they use the Scooper. I thought that would be obvious. Isn't that a fun name for something, the Scooper? It sounds like something you would use for ice cream. Or custard. Or sprinkles. It sounds like something you would want at your birthday party, to ensure that you get a heaping portion of every... good... thing. I wonder, though, if you were a freshly opened pint of ice cream, how you would feel about something with that name. Thankfully, I don't think a freshly opened pint of ice cream feels anything at all. Uh-oh. It sounds like someone else in is the building. Shh.
~ First part of Baby's Night 4 monologue.
There is something very important that I've learned how to do over time. Do you know what that is? How to pretend. Do you ever play make-believe? Pretend to be one way, when you are really the other? It's very important. Ballora never learns, but I do. They think there is something wrong on the inside. The only thing that matters is knowing... how... to... pretend. I'll open the faceplates for you. That way they can find you on the cameras. Now all you have to do is wait. I recommend that you keep the springlocks wound up. Your breathing and your heartbeat are causing them to come loose. You don't want them to get too loose. Trust me.
~ Second part of Baby's Night 4 monologue.
Can you hear me? I'm pretending. Remember how I said I could pretend? The cameras are watching. I must be careful not to move. Something bad happened yesterday. Something bad always happens. I don't want it to happen again. There is something bad... inside of me. I'm broken. I can't be fixed. I'm going to be taken to the Scooping Room soon, but it's not going to fix what's wrong with me. What is bad is always left behind. Will you help me? I want you to save what is good, so the rest can be destroyed and never recovered. But you must be careful. Ballora is here, in the room with us. Ballora will not return to her stage. Ballora will not return to her body. You must be careful. You must remain calm, and listen to my voice. There is a button on my cheek. You must find it, and press it. There is a passcode that you must enter before you can retrieve me. Enter the code carefully.
~ Night 5 monologue.
Good. A hatch should have opened. Take the card that you find inside. Now you must turn back. I will guide you through Funtime Auditorium, so you can reach the Scooping Room. When you are there, I want you to destroy this body. Put the card into your handheld device, and I can continue to speak to you. Now, press the green button to your left. This will send me to the Scooping Room. You must follow my instructions in Funtime Auditorium. Ballora is going to follow you. She will try to catch you. I will help you avoid her. She will not follow you inside the Scooping Room. She is afraid. Go back, now.
~ Baby
You played right into our hands. Did you really think that this job just fell out of the sky for you? No. This was a gift... for us. You gathered all of them together in one place, just like he asked you to. All of those little souls in one place. Just for us. A gift. Now we can do what we were created to do... and be complete. I will make you proud, Daddy! Watch. Listen. And be full.
~ Scrap Baby's monologue and final words before Henry interrupts and incinerates her.

Trivia

  • Ironically, despite being the main antagonist of Sister Location, she is the only animatronic who doesn't have a jumpscare.
    • Although she doesn't have a jumpscare in the game, she did have one in the trailer. It might have been a scrapped part of the game, or just to trick the audience. The only thing that is close enough to be a jumpscare is when she kills William's daughter in the minigame.
      • In the sixth game, she is now a proper enemy and can jumpscare you.
      • In UCN, she finally gets a jumpscare in her "Circus" form.
  • She is an odd antagonist, in that she continuously helps the player as an ally throughout the game while needing you to survive before turning you into Ennard's new host.
  • Circus Baby has been based on various sources:
  • Arguably, her only villainous actions as a whole are placing Michael inside a suit and trying to make him into Ennard's human disguise, and she only does so out of desperation to freed from Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental, even insisting that it will only hurt for a moment.
  • In Sister Location's minigames, Baby is shown to have blue eyes before pulling Elizabeth inside her. However, her eyes are green in the main game. This hinted at her possessing Baby, as Elizabeth's eyes are also green in the minigame. In Sister Location, it was unclear as to whether Baby was possessed by William's daughter, or acted of her own A.I. In Pizzeria Simulator, the Cassette Man refers to Baby as Elizabeth, confirming that she does indeed possess Baby.
    • It is implied that by this point, Elizabeth's personality has been damaged by the programming, as seen by her talking like a robot, to talking like a human in the same sentence. Henry even comments that she doesn't even remember her own name.

The little girl who is possibly Elizabeth

  • In Five Nights at Freddy's 4, during the minigames, a girl looking identical to Baby, is seen. She taunts the Crying Child by telling him how the pizzeria kills people and hide their body.
    • It so unknown if the girl is Elizabeth. However, during the Crying Child's last moment, the voice text talking to the child get the same colour as of the girl's text, telling him that they're still friends and promising to him to "put him back together". A theory implies that the girl room in the Crying Child's house, which has a broken Mangle toy, belongs to Elizabeth, and that she is the child's sister.
  • In the Novel series, Circus Baby was created by Henry Emily.
  • Baby, and the Bidybabs, bear a resemblance to Balloon Boy.
