Fazbear Entertainment, Incorporated is the main antagonistic faction of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.
They are the overarching antagonistic faction of Five Nights at Freddy's and Five Nights at Freddy's 2, the posthumous main antagonistic faction of Five Nights at Freddy's 3, a minor antagonistic faction in Five Nights at Freddy's 4, the main antagonistic faction of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator and Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, and the secondary antagonistic faction of Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. However, they started being truly important to the story only after FNaF VR.
They are a corrupt entertainment company and creators of the Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria chain, whose shady business practices allowed the events of the series to occur in the first place, as well as the animatronics.
Five Nights at Freddy's 1, 2, 3 and Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator
Fazbear Entertainment is a group created likely around the 1970s to the early 1980s by Henry Emily and William Afton. It was created when Fredbear's Family Diner was opened, with Freddy Fazbear's Pizza opening shortly afterwards. It was a successful organization at first until Afton killed five children in Freddy's and one child outside it. A few days later, a teenager stuffed his younger brother into the mouth of an animatronic. Fredbear's Family Diner closed down, and Freddy Fazbear's Pizza followed it.
Later, they opened a second Freddy Fazbear's Pizza in 1987, with new Toy animatronics. The restaurant was closed down due to an animatronic biting Jeremy Fitzgerald's frontal lobe off and William killing five more kids.
In 1988, the third Freddy Fazbear's Pizza opened, and did successfully well until 1993, when an employee was murdered, closing it down. William later came back and destroyed the animatronics, but the souls made him jump into the SpringBonnie suit. He experienced a springlock failure, and died.
In 2023, a horror attraction called Fazbear's Fright was opened in an attempt to cash in on the various myths and tragedies surrounding the defunct pizzeria chain. During their search of the run-down pizzeria locations for usable props and decorations, a rotten but still functioning Spring Bonnie animatronic was found and brought to their house of horros. Unbeknownst to them this animatronic contained the corpse of William Afton, now haunting the suit and looking for new victims as Springtrap. It is unknown if Fazbear Ent. was associated with the Fazbear's Fright group any way.
A few days before Fazbear's Fright could be opened to the public, the entire attraction burned to the ground thanks to faulty wiring, but Springtrap manages to escape. Henry, now an old man and aware that his former friend is the culprit behind the Fazbear murders, hears of this and decides to take matters into his own hands, cooperating with the remaining Fazbear Entertainment members to create one last location to end it all. A massive incinerator disguised as a pizzeria to lure out, trap and kill Springtrap, Molten Freddy, Scrap Baby and Lefty, the last of the animatronics he and his partner created, along with Henry himself as atonement for all the suffering he inadvertently caused. With the help of William's son Michael the trap was successful and burned down, ending Fazbear Entertainment.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted
Despite Henry's plans of leaving the franchise to be forgotten, the company was re-established yet again some time after his death. Fazbear Ent. hired an indie game developer to make indie games based on the tragedies associated with the brand so they can discredit them and regain their long lost reputation, now that all evidence has been destroyed. Fazbear Ent. then works with a company called Silver Parasol Games to make a VR game, "The Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience", to further snuff out any rumors regarding their past. Eventually, instead of working with Silver Parasol they handed development to a different unnamed company, after an incident with one of Silver Parasol's employees called Jeremy resulted in his death. Since they make a DLC later, it seems to have sold well.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted DLC - Curse of Dreadbear
Eventually, Fazbear Ent. makes a Halloween DLC, titled "Curse of Dreadbear".
Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery
They create the "Fazbear Funtime Service" to allow customers to see their favorite animatronics entertain them at home, but "unfortunate circumstances" causes the animatronics to glitch out and attack them instead. With a near millennia long subscription to their service caused by glitches, they must brave the endless sea of malicious machines while the FFS is either completely oblivious to it or pretends to be. Amidst the chaos, an old version of Bonnie was added to the roster of animatronics the players could encounter, but e-mails between Fazbear employees show that it wasn't planned to be there.
In the books
Into the Pit
Into the Pit
At the time of the first story, Into the Pit, Fazbear Entertainment seems to be gone for good, at least in this city. It was instead replaced by Jeff's Pizza. However, a magic ballpit let Oswald time travel to 1985, when Freddy Fazbear's Pizza was still open. There, he finds out the horrible truth - Someone killed six children, which most likely caused Freddy's to close down.
To Be Beatiful
We don't know anything in this story about Fazbear Entertainment. However, the story exists in the same universe as another book, in which Fazbear Entertainment is active, so it can be guessed it exists.
Count the Ways
Once again, the company isn't mentioned.
Fazbear Entertainment most likely has existed before, as there's an abandoned Freddy's. However, outside of the classic Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy, another animatronic was in the pizzeria.
Fazbear Entertainment exists in the present time, and even has a still-functioning pizzeria. However, there are certain little animatronics that will go to lonely children. The little animatronics are Lonely Freddies.
Out of Stock
Once again, the company exists in present time. This time, they sell toys, and seemingly don't have a pizzeria. One of the most popular toys is the Plushtrap Chaser. Three protagonists get themselfes one (by stealing it). However, it is agressive. Meanwhile, an urban legend roams around the streets and eventually gets the unusal Plushtrap Chaser.
The New Kid
In this book, Fazbear Entertainment presumibly stops existing, as there's an abandoned Freddy Fazbear's Pizza in the city Devon lives, with the main four characters deactivated and an empty Fredbear suit.
