Funtime Freddy Fazbear and the Bonnie Hand Puppet, also simply known as Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon, are major antagonists in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.
They are a duo of homicidal animatronics created by William Afton to isolate, kidnap and murder children. They later become Ennard along with the rest of the Funtime animatronics, until Funtime Freddy kicks out Baby and takes charge, becoming Molten Freddy and later the Blob, and possibly losing Bon-Bon along the way.
Funtime Freddy is voiced by Kellen Goff, who also voiced Molten Freddy, Fredbear, Glamrock Freddy, and the Daycare Attendant, as well as other villains such as Kai Chisaki, Fiddlesticks, Hans, Diavolo, Rekka Hoshimiya, Zagred, and Techno Pirate. Bon-Bon was voiced by Becky Shrimpton, who also voices Funtime Chica.
Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon serve as two of the four secondary antagonists (alongside Ballora and Funtime Foxy) of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, one of the three secondary antagonists (alongside Scrap Baby and Lefty) of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulatoras Molten Freddy, supporting antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted and Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, and one of the two final antagonists (alongside Burntrap) of Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach as the Blob.
In the spin-off Ultimate Custom Night, Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon are cameo characters while Molten Freddy is a supporting antagonist.
Funtime Freddy also makes an appearance as a minor antagonist in the novel trilogy's alternate timeline and a supporting antagonist in the questionably canon Fazbear Frights anthology novel series.
In the lore
Sometime after the closure of the 1983 Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria, William Afton created a pizzeria titled Circus Baby's Pizza World. One of the animatronics there was Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon. However, the duo, like every other animatronic in the location, were made to kill children. Before opening day, Elizabeth Afton, William's daughter, was killed by Circus Baby. William trapped the animatronics underground in Circus Baby's Entertainment & Rental. The animatronics tried to get out many times.
Years later, William's oldest child (And the only one alive), Michael Afton, is sent by William to the location. On his second night, he encounters Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon. Michael uses Bon-Bon to lure Funtime Freddy onto his stage. Ultimately, Michael survives, and returns home. On Night 3, Michael has to repair Funtime Freddy. After opening the faceplates and the chestplates, Bon-Bon starts moving and wants to kill Michael, only to be deactivated.
Eventually, the duo is scooped in the Scooping Room, and fuses with the other Funtimes to create Ennard. Michael sees their remains in the Scooping Room. Ennard, with Baby in control, scoops Michael, and replaces his organs, finally escaping the underground location. Although the disguise was working at first, the corpse started to rot. After a week, Ennard escaped Michael's body. However, Michael was injected with Remnant, allowing him to survive.
At an unknown point of time, Funtime Freddy, Bon-Bon, Funtime Foxy, and Ballora got into an argument with Baby, due to the fact that she was bossing everyone around. Ultimately, it ends with the Funtimes throwing Baby out of Ennard. Funtime Freddy takes control of the body, gets the body a Freddy mask made of molten metal, and becomes Molten Freddy. It's implied Bon-Bon at one point died, although it's not confirmed. At a unknown point of time, Molten Freddy is called into Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Place. There, he is salvaged by Michael, who is now a rotten undead corpse. Every day, he meets new animatronics - at first it was Scraptrap, who was William Afton after the fire in Fazbear's Fright, then Scrap Baby, who was Baby that repaired herself after being kicked out of Ennard's body. Finally, there was Lefty, a mysterious black bear. On Saturday, Scrap Baby is about to kill Michael, but is stopped by Henry Emily, William's old business partner.
Henry reveals that it was all a trap made to lure every single animatronic that is still alive. With this, he sets the location on fire. He reveals that Lefty captured the Puppet, who is possessed by Henry's daughter. Henry deems William to Hell, and says his last goodbye to his daughter, as the pizzeria is slowly burning down. Molten Freddy is presumably killed once and for all, ending the homicidal animatronic, and freeing the many souls he had contained within his body.
Several years later, Fazbear Entertainment, the company behind Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, made a VR game based on the rumors about the locations from decades ago. In one of the levels, there are versions of Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon. Due to the fact that they are literally video-game characters, they aren't the real robots, and aren't in any way possessed.
In the mainline games
Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location
Funtime Freddy is active only during Night 2 at the Breaker Room. The main objective of this night is to turn on the power in the breaker room, where Freddy is being kept. If the player does not periodically close the screen to check on Funtime Freddy, he will jumpscare them, resulting in a game over.
On Night 3, in Parts/Service, the player is sent to repair Funtime Freddy. They first open the faceplates, then the chestplates. Then, finally, the player must click Bon-Bon's button to reboot it as well, but Bon-Bon will make an attempt to hide from the player. If the player fails to find Bon-Bon, then he will jumpscare them, ending the game.
On Night 5, the "corpses" of the duo are seen in the Scooping Room, as they became a part of Ennard.
Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon return as a singular character in the non-canon Custom Night DLC for Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. If one plays a preset where Freddy is active, he will attempt to kill the player resulting in a game over. To prevent said game over, the player must watch the camera to observe Funtime Freddy. Freddy will approach from either the right or left side. If Funtime Freddy commands Bon-Bon to attack, the player must close the door correlating with Freddy's location. However, if he announces a surprise, the player must close the door opposite of the side he is positioned. Regardless of his proclamation, failure to defend accordingly will result in Bon-Bon jumpscaring and killing the player. Bon-Bon has a female counterpart introduced in the custom night named Bonnet.
Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator
After Circus Baby's parts were removed from Ennard's remains, the remains formed together and became Molten Freddy; a moving mass of robotic parts and wires with Funtime Freddy's personality having taken over as leader.
Molten Freddy ended up in the back alley of the newly opened Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Place, trying to get inside and fulfill its intended purpose. The protagonist, Michael Afton, salvages it on Monday, making it the first animatronic the player has to deal with unless they let someone else inside by having a high risk rating on their first day. From Tuesday onwards, Molten Freddy hunts Michael in the vents, trying to kill him to get to the children in the pizzeria. Mike lures it and the others with sounds of children while ordering supplies, cleaning the restaurant, etc. On Saturday, Henry Emily reveals his plan to kill everyone present as he sets the entire pizzeria on fire. Molten Freddy, like everyone else in the building, is burned alive, and the souls inhabiting it were set free with its destruction.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted
Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon reappear in their own level based on FNaF 4. The player must prevent both animatronics from entering the bedroom while also watching out for Bonnet. The animatronics outside the bedroom can be repelled by flashing a light on them down the hallways or listening if they are at the door. While Bon-Bon and Bonnet's jumpscares are only distractions, getting one from Funtime Freddy results in a game over.
Funtime Freddy is also a threat during Funtime Foxy's level in Nightmare Mode. He is one of a few animatronics wandering in the darkness and will jumpscare the player if he gets too close to them.
Five Nights at Freddy's Ar: Special Devilery
Funtime Freddy and Bon-bon both returned by massive hype demand, working as a team in their CPU.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach
While Funtime Freddy doesn't appear in either his Funtime or Molten form, his mask is used for the Blob, and is presumably one of the spirits attempting to take control of it. Meanwhile, Bon-Bon appears on one of the arcades. The Blob is a secret antagonist in Security Breach, as he doesn't appear in the main sectors to kill the player, when the player completes the true ending, Blob will grab Burntrap (Current Glitchtrap) and pull him into the fire, leaving their whereabouts unknown.
Ultimate Custom Night
Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon themselves only make cameo appearances in Ultimate Custom Night, with Funtime Freddy appearing on the monitor of the Sister Location themed office and Bon-Bon on the desk of the same unlockable office. Instead of Funtime Freddy and/or Bon-Bon, Molten Freddy returns as a customizable animatronic. Much like his FNaF 6 counterpart, Molten Freddy pursues through the vents. The player must keep track of him through the vent camera. Once Molten Freddy is heard laughing, one must close the vent door to avoid getting jumpscared by him. Naturally, Molten Freddy's jumpscare results in a game over, with Molten Freddy laughing maniacally over the game over screen.

Funtime Freddy without Bon Bon appears in the novel trilogy as one of William Afton's animatronics.
Count the Ways
In the third story of Fazbear Fright: Into the Pit, Funtime Freddy was found by Millie's grandfather in a junk yard and brought him to his garage where he put various things he had collected. The animatronic used to be pink in color, but through time he got withered becoming gray in color (similar to New Freddy), and there is no mention of the Bonnie Handpuppet. The animatronic remained there for sometime, and unknown to Millie and her grandfather Funtime Freddy had been active all this time listening to them. He listened to Millie who was 14 year old goth girl obsessed with death and imagining herself dying, until she developed a crush on a boy, but was eventually left heartbroken. On Christmas Eve some family members arrived at the grandfather's house to celebrate, but Millie being antisocial wanted to avoid them and hid inside Freddy's stomach.
While hiding she fell asleep inside the animatronic, but upon awakening she noticed the Freddy had rolled his eyes inside his head so he could see her. He revealed to her that he had been active and trapped Millie inside of him. He told her that had been waiting for so long the opportunity to kill someone again, and told her to choose which way he would kill her. He counts the different ways used to kill somebody, describing the history and the effects of each death with enthusiasm, having memorized numerous methods of murder. He told Millie that the only kill he hadn't the chance to try yet was decapitation. Millie discovered the blade he would kill her with and that there might be just enough room for her to duck under it, which would allow her to escape when he opened his stomach to decapitate her.
She told Freddy that she chose to be killed by decapitation, but the blade was faster than Millie thought. Millie is confirmed to have died in the fazbear frights #11 epilogue.
Room for One More
Funtime Freddy appears in one of Stanley's dream. In this dream, the facility's power cuts out and, when Stanley turns on his flashlight, he sees the animatronic bear and he got attacked by him. Since Stanley had never seen Funtime Freddy before, it's possible there are paranormal reasons behind this dream.
Funtime Freddy's design is a combination of Withered Freddy and Toy Freddy from Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He posses five fingers on his left hand and holds a microphone with a purple handle. Like Funtime Foxy, he has a circular speaker located under his bowtie. His suit is colored white and purple, unlike most counterparts of Freddy. His face consists of plates which move around, and when threatening his prey, he pulls them back to reveal his internal structures. His hat can be raised off the top of his head via a pole inside his head.
Bon Bon is the hand puppet that replaces Funtime Freddy's right hand. He has a similar head and facial structures to Bonnie from the first game but with red rosy cheeks and paint job of Toy Bonnie. Similar to Bonnie's appearance from the second game, he wears a single black button from the middle of his chest. Like Bonnie, his eyes are usually pink in color. Unlike the other funtime models, Bon-Bon doesn't have movable faceplates and cannot open his mask to reveal his endoskeleton head.
Funtime Freddy is rambunctious, exuberant, playful, deranged, and highly strung. He sounds and talks like a lively children's entertainer, like a very camp, effeminate clown. He is prone to laughing and stuttering. However, this may be because his AI isn't as sentient as the ones of Circus Baby and Ballora, making him think there are children around him and acted like that to lure them to their death. He had a notably angrier tone of voice during the custom night.
In stark contrast to Funtime Freddy, Bon-Bon is very formal, mellow, and level headed, speaking in a calm tone of voice. However, when Funtime Freddy was being repaired, it acted extremely shy, violent, homicidal, and murderous.

- Funtime Freddy and Bon-Bon seem to be based on Rolfe DeWolfe and Earl Schmerle from Showbiz Pizza Place.
- Funtime Freddy sounds rather like Mark Hamill's portrayal of the Joker, albeit in a much more lispy and high-pitched, almost campy tone.
- Bon Bon's name is reference to the nickname of Toy Bonnie by fans.
- Funtime Freddy and Molten Freddy's voice actor Kellen Goff has stated that Ennard is his favorite animatronic, which is ironic as Molten Freddy is made up of Ennard's remains.
- It's been theorized that Funtime Freddy is the animatronic the MCI Victims possesses.
- As the Fazbear Fright's books and The Fourth Closet implies that the reason why William went to the abandoned Pizzeria as shown in the FNaF 3's mini games was to retrieve the endoskeletons and remnants from the original animatronics from the first game for the creation of the Funtime Animatronics.
- There is a theory which states that the power module the player has to remove from Funtime Freddy in Night 3 is actually one of the special sound disks created by Henry Emily, later used by William Afton in the novel series. These disks emit a type of sound frequency which causes the brain to hallucinate, making people see things as they think of them. In the novels children who loved the animatronics would see them as friendly characters, while Charlie and her friends (who viewed them in a more negative light thanks to having been attacked by them once) saw them as twisted monstrosities like Twisted Freddy (It’s should be noted that Twisted Freddy’s original form is a silver version of Funtime Freddy without Bon Bon). These disks have never been brought up properly in the games however, making it unlikely they exist in this timeline.
- Strangely, during the first encounter with Funtime Freddy, the player can control the voice of Bon-Bon, telling Freddy that there was no one there, preventing Freddy from attacking the player. It is possible that Bon-Bon doesn't have as much of a free will as the other animatronics do.
- While Bon-Bon jumpscares the player, its eyes get smaller, just like Toy Bonnie's jumpscare.
- In Funtime Freddy's Night Terror level, just like the Nightmare animatronics, he can be heard breathing, despite being an actual animatronic and not a nightmare.
- Funtime Freddy and Springtrap are the only possessed animatronics in the franchise which aren't tragic in any way, seeing as Funtime Freddy loves to do what he was made to and Springtrap is a child murderer who doesn't regret anything.
- This makes Funtime Freddy the only child-possessed animatronic in the franchise who isn't tragic.
- In FNAF AR: Special Delivery, Bon-Bon doesn't try to calm Funtime Freddy down, and instead encourages him to kill the player.
- Funtime Freddy is the only one of the five major animatronics in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location who doesn't appear in Ultimate Custom Night as a customizable character.
