Fazbear Entertainment, Incorporated is the main antagonistic faction of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.
Founded by Henry Emily and William Afton, it is 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.
Following its temporary closure, it was later revived and managed by William's son Michael in a plot by Henry to destroy the malicious William once and for all. With Henry and Michael presumed dead and William reduced to a murderous zombie, it is unknown who runs the company as of now.
Fazbear Entertainment is the overarching antagonistic faction of Five Nights at Freddy's, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, and Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach, the posthumous antagonistic faction of Five Nights at Freddy's 3 and Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, a minor antagonistic faction in Five Nights at Freddy's 4, and the titular main protagonistic faction of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator.
It is also the overarching antagonistic faction of the Fazbear Frights anthology series.
Five Nights at Freddy's 1, 2, 3, 4 and Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator
Fazbear Entertainment is a company created in 1983 by Henry Emily and William Afton. It was created when Freddy Fazbear's Pizza was opened during the same year the company was founded (although its predecessor Fredbear's Family Diner was founded earlier, possibly in 1982). It was a successful organization at first, until Afton killed five children in Freddy's and one child outside the establishment. Between these two incidents, a teenager stuffed his younger brother into the mouth of the Fredbear animatronic, unintentionally killing him. This resulted in Fredbear's Family Diner closed down, and Freddy Fazbear's Pizza following it.
Later, they opened a second Freddy Fazbear's Pizza in 1987, with new Toy animatronics. The restaurant was closed down after a few short weeks, due to one of the animatronics biting an employee'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 where bankruptcy occurred, resulting in the closure and abandonment of the establishment. William later came back and destroyed the animatronics, but the souls chased him into a backroom, forcing him to don the Spring Bonnie suit located within it. This caused him to experience a springlock failure, slowly but surely killing him.
In 2023, a horror attraction called Fazbear's Fright was made 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 horrors. 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, but it is highly likely that they have no involvement with them whatsoever.
A few days before Fazbear's Fright could even be opened to the public, the entire attraction burned to the ground thanks to either arson or faulty wiring. Springtrap, however, 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 remaining 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 (Springtrap) 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.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach
The company has opened a new location, a giant three-story entertainment center called the Freddy Fazbear's Mega PizzaPlex, with animatronics with hyper-advanced and hyper-realistic animatronics. Soon several disappearences starts taking place at the PizzaPlex, and one night a young child, called Gregory, remains stuck inside the building. The newspaper headline in one of the endings reveals the eventually location shut down due to health concerns, with Fazbear Entertainment planning to reopen it the following season. In another ending, a newspaper clip says that the PizzaPlex burnt to the ground, and that Fazbear Entertainment was planning a recall on flammable toys produced by them.
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 ball pit allows Oswald to experience the time of when Freddy Fazbear's Pizza was still open, in 1985. There, he finds out the horrible truth, someone killed six children, which most likely caused Freddy's to close down.
To Be Beautiful
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.
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.

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.

Meanwhile, an urban legend roams around the streets and eventually gets the unusual Plushtrap Chaser.

Fazbear Entertainment is still active and it produces merch that is delivered to their locations throughout their distribution center. It is here that the titular man is brought by Father Arthur Blythe.

Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is mentioned, with Nole and Sam taking inspiration for Blackbird from the characters present in the restaurants owned by Fazbear Entertainment, particularly Chica.
Hide and Seek
In this story, Fazbear Entertainment is apparently still active. In the story, the main character Toby works at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and Games, a family pizzeria managed by his boss Dan and presumably, either currently or previously, owned by Fazbear Entertainment.
