Golden Freddy looks like the standard Freddy Fazbear. The main differences are his gold fur, his navy blue hat and bow tie. In the office, he has extremely small white pupils, but the close-up of his face doesn't show them. Golden Freddy is probably the Animatronic ghost version of Cassidy or the Bite Victim. In the "''Thank You!''" image, Golden Freddy has animatronic eyes. This is a mistake made by Scott, as the head is reused from one of Freddy Fazbear's jumpscares in ''Five Nights at Freddy's''.

Golden Freddy is a redesign of Fredbear, the original mascot of Fredbear's Family Diner. A child called Cassidy was lured by [[William Afton (Five Nights at Freddy's)|William]] in the [[Springtrap|Spring Bonnie]] costume to the Safe Room, murdered and then stuffed into the Golden Freddy suit. Afterwards, [[The Puppet]] allowed Cassidy to possess Golden Freddy. However, it is often theorised that the child bitten by Fredbear in ''Five Nights at Freddy's 4'' is possessing Golden Freddy. Due to the smell from the bodies, the animatronics were put in storage, but kept for spare parts.

Golden Freddy will be summoned if the player stares at the poster. A girl's laughter will be heard and if you look back at the room, you will see an empty costume.
+
During Mike Schmidt's shift, Golden Freddy is not openly attacking him and only shows up as an easter egg on two occasions.
+
Firstly when checking CAM 2B, the Freddy poster can rarely change into a Golden Freddy poster, accompanied by a giggle, at which point Golden Freddy appears in the Office. The only way Mike can save himself is by flicking the monitor up, which causes Golden Freddy to vanish. If the player is killed by Golden Freddy, the game crashes. Golden Freddy's jumpscare could be heard cutting off Phone Guy's Night 4 phone call, implying he was the one who killed him.
If Golden Freddy appears, he will kill you and crash the game after a few seconds watching motionlessly the player, while the guard experiences macabre hallucinations. However, if you look back at the camera he will go away.
+
The second easter egg happens whenever the player sets the animatronic AI's to 1/9/8/7 in the Custom Night mode. Instead of starting the night with the selected difficulty settings, Golden Freddy instantly jumpscares the player and forces the game to crash.
 
Golden Freddy is a Easter Egg that may not even appear if you play the whole game. Although if in the Custom Night you set the settings to 1/9/8/7, Golden Freddy jumpscares you.

In the prequel, set in 1987, Golden Freddy can be glimpsed on a number of posters drawn by children. The company tried to repair Golden Freddy and the others, fitting them with facial recognition software, but they were deemed ugly, so were left for spare parts in the Parts/Service room. Withered Golden Freddy was among the animatronics who attacked William when he working at the Pizzeria as a security guard. In the minigame SAVETHEM, Golden Freddy can be seen in various rooms, disappearing if Freddy comes near to him.

Golden Freddy can appear on Night 6, and even possibly Night 7 (depending if his A.I. is disabled). Golden Freddy can teleport into the Office, sitting there, and if the player manages to put on the mask, he'll vanish.
 
 
He can also go into the hallway where his floating giant head is. To stop him, the player must put up the monitor, or don the Freddy head. If the giant head is flashed at, Golden Freddy will attack, and end the night.

Withered Golden Freddy becomes active on Night 6, and can teleport to the Office hallway in the form of a floating head, or within the Office itself to kill the next night guard, Jeremy Fitzgerald. Jeremy fends him off by putting on the Freddy Head the moment he sees Freddy inside The Office, fooling the facial recognition. As well as this, Jeremy could turn off the Flashlight while Golden Freddy was in the hall. After Fritz Smith's shift on Night 7, where the animatronic's AI levels are altered, Golden Freddy, along with the other original animatronics, is kept, and repaired for the FNaF 1's Pizzeria.

In the final minigame where the player, as the child possessing the [[The Puppet|Marionette]], and the spirits inhabiting Freddy, [[Bonnie the Bunny|Bonnie]], [[Chica the Chicken|Chica]], and [[Foxy the Pirate|Foxy]] greet him and offer him a cake (To make up for William's killing him on most likely his birthday).

The fifth child's eyes widen, and he equips the mask of Golden Freddy, accepts this offering, and with this, he and the other children finally ascend to the afterlife, however ''Ultimate Custom Night'' may make The Happiest Day non-canon, if it is in fact William Afton's hell created by Golden Freddy.
 
   
 
It's confirmed by Phone Guy that Golden Freddy was original a replacement suit for Fredbear after Springlock accident at the FNaF 4's restaurant, before being moved to the FNaF 2's location with the other Withered Animatronics.

It is speculated in the fourth game, that Golden Freddy was the original Fredbear, and the one who caused the Bite of '83, during a child's birthday party. When[[Big Brother (Five Nights at Freddy's)| The Brother]] and[[Big Brother's Friends| his friends]] wearing the masks of the animatronics from the first game came to terrorize the boy, the group, deciding to prank the child, grabbed him and try to get him close into the mouth of Fredbear for a "kiss" and end up stuffing the player's head into the mouth of Fredbear. Suddenly, Fredbear forcefully closes his mouth, resulting to the child's head being crushed. This incident causes the location to shut down, and Fredbear and [[Springtrap (Five Nights at Freddy's)|Spring Bonnie]] are decommissioned, causing Fredbear to no longer be worn as a spring lock suit. It is often theorized that the child bitten by Fredbear is possessing Golden Freddy.

IT'S ME.
~ Golden Freddy's famous character motto which also appears as his loading screen text in FNAF World.

Golden Freddy (whose original name is Fredbear) is a major antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.

He serves as a minor antagonist in the original Five Nights at Freddy's, the secondary antagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, a supporting character in Five Nights at Freddy's 3 and the main antagonist of Ultimate Custom Night (as both Golden Freddy and 'The One You Should Not Have Killed'). He is a mysterious, ghost-like version of Fredbear.

In the novel Five Nights at Freddy's: The Silver Eyes, he is actually the ghost of a murdered child named Michael Brooks.

DescriptionEdit

Golden Freddy looks like the standard Freddy Fazbear. The main differences are his gold fur, his navy blue hat and bow tie. In the office, he has extremely small white pupils, but the close-up of his face doesn't show them. Golden Freddy is the Animatronic ghost version of Cassidy. In the "Thank You!" image, Golden Freddy has animatronic eyes. This is a mistake made by Scott, as the head is reused from one of Freddy Fazbear's jumpscares in Five Nights at Freddy's.

HistoryEdit

Note: Given that the Five Nights at Freddy's story is told out of chronological order, the history of Golden Freddy is presented in the release order of the games. 

BackstoryEdit

Golden Freddy is a redesign of Fredbear, the original mascot of Fredbear's Family Diner. A child called Cassidy was lured by William in the Spring Bonnie costume to the Safe Room, murdered and then stuffed into the Golden Freddy suit. Afterwards, The Puppet allowed Cassidy to possess Golden Freddy. However, it is often theorised that the child bitten by Fredbear in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is possessing Golden Freddy. Due to the smell from the bodies, the animatronics were put in storage, but kept for spare parts.

Five Nights at Freddy'sEdit

During Mike Schmidt's shift, Golden Freddy is not openly attacking him and only shows up as an easter egg on two occasions. Firstly when checking CAM 2B, the Freddy poster can rarely change into a Golden Freddy poster, accompanied by a giggle, at which point Golden Freddy appears in the Office. The only way Mike can save himself is by flicking the monitor up, which causes Golden Freddy to vanish. If the player is killed by Golden Freddy, the game crashes. Golden Freddy's jumpscare could be heard cutting off Phone Guy's Night 4 phone call, implying he was the one who killed him. The second easter egg happens whenever the player sets the animatronic AI's to 1/9/8/7 in the Custom Night mode. Instead of starting the night with the selected difficulty settings, Golden Freddy instantly jumpscares the player and forces the game to crash.

Five Nights at Freddy's 2Edit

In the prequel, set in 1987, Golden Freddy can be glimpsed on a number of posters drawn by children. The company tried to repair Golden Freddy and the others, fitting them with facial recognition software, but they were deemed ugly, so were left for spare parts in the Parts/Service room. Withered Golden Freddy was among the animatronics who attacked William when he working at the Pizzeria as a security guard. In the minigame SAVETHEM, Golden Freddy can be seen in various rooms, disappearing if Freddy comes near to him.

Withered Golden Freddy becomes active on Night 6, and can teleport to the Office hallway in the form of a floating head, or within the Office itself to kill the next night guard, Jeremy Fitzgerald. Jeremy fends him off by putting on the Freddy Head the moment he sees Freddy inside The Office, fooling the facial recognition. As well as this, Jeremy could turn off the Flashlight while Golden Freddy was in the hall. After Fritz Smith's shift on Night 7, where the animatronic's AI levels are altered, Golden Freddy, along with the other original animatronics, is kept, and repaired for the FNaF 1's Pizzeria.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3Edit

Golden Freddy appears the minigames, one of which further hints that he was the mascot of the original restaurant, Fredbear's Family Diner, along with Spring Bonnie. The Golden Freddy child appears in Happiest Day. Here, the child possessing him is standing behind a table. They are given cake by the Puppet, and, after the Golden Freddy mask appears on the child's face, they vanish, leaving the mask behind.

It's confirmed by Phone Guy that Golden Freddy was original a replacement suit for Fredbear after Springlock accident at the FNaF 4's restaurant, before being moved to the FNaF 2's location with the other Withered Animatronics.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4Edit

Fredbear, who was replaced by Golden Freddy, appears in the minigames, set during the birthday party at FNaF 2's restaurant. On the Crying Child's birthday, the The Brother and his friends, wearing the masks of the animatronics from the first game, came to terrorize the boy. The group decided to prank the child, grabbing and dragging him closer to the mouth of Fredbear for a "kiss", ultimately stuffing the boy's head into the mouth of Fredbear. Suddenly, Fredbear forcefully closes his mouth, resulting to the child's head being crushed. This incident causes the location to shut down, and Fredbear and Spring Bonnie are decommissioned, causing Fredbear to no longer be worn as a spring lock suit.

It's confirmed by the Freddy's Files that the FNaF 4's location takes place at FNaF 2's restaurant during the birthday party that was mentioned by Phone Guy in his Night 6's recording.

Ultimate Custom NightEdit

The withered version of Golden Freddy appears as an antagonist in the game Ultimate Custom Night. Like in other games in the series, Golden Freddy may appear in the player's office. The player only has a short amount of time to put up their monitor or put on the Freddy head when catching a glimpse of him to make Golden Freddy disappear before Golden Freddy kills the player.

Golden Freddy is tied to an Easter egg in the game. If only Golden Freddy is active with his A.I. set to 1 and the player uses the Death Coin on him, Fredbear will appear and instantly kill the player, confirming that Golden Freddy and Fredbear are one and the same.

It is heavily implied the the soul within Golden Freddy was the one who set up Ultimate Custom Night as William's personal hell after the events of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator. They are referred to are "The one you should not have killed", and can occasionally be seen smiling maliciously at William. They also seemingly speak though Happy Frog, Nedd Bear, and Orville Elephant, leaving William vengeful messages.

If the player completes all of the anime cutscenes, a final one will play after completing another challenge showing the classic version of Golden Freddy twitching on the ground as he fades into the darkness.

Spin-OffsEdit

FNAF WorldEdit

Golden Freddy returns in this game as a playable character, which needs to be unlocked.

Golden Freddy's moves are:

  • Jumpscare - Stuns all enemies for a few seconds.
  • Rainy Day 2 - Temporarily decreases all enemies defense and damages all enemies multiple times.
  • Haunting - Summons a ghost version of Freddy Fazbear that can Freeze a opponent for a short time. Doesn't work on bosses.

Golden Freddy is a support character, although not great, since Rainy Day 2 is the only move that can kill. He needs allies to survive, because he won't make it far alone.

Freddy in Space 2Edit

Golden Freddy returns in this spin-off made to donate to St. Jude as one of the six playable characters, alongside Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, Foxy and The Puppet. Compared to others, he doesn't look human-like, but still has his original appearance.

NovelsEdit

Five Nights at Freddy's: The Silver EyesEdit

Golden Freddy is a far more benevolent and heroic character in the novel than in the game series, acting as a guide to the main characters. He is first discovered by Carlton while he is trapped in a spring lock suit. When his kidnapper, William Afton, leaves the room, Carlton notices a yellow Freddy costume sitting in the corner, with two glowing pinpricks in its empty eyes.

Golden Freddy begins speaking, though not aloud, and Carlton realizes that Golden Freddy is the spirit of his childhood friend, Michael Brooks, one of Afton's previous victims. As Charlie enters the room to rescue Carlton, he points out Golden Freddy in the corner and informs her that he was Michael all along. Once Carlton is released from the suit with Charlie's help, Golden Freddy mysteriously vanishes without a sound.

As Freddy Fazbear and his cohorts come to life and attack the teenagers aggressively, they end up in the main room, where they proceed to form a circle around them, and as they are about to lunge, all four of them stop in place, Golden Freddy now standing in the corner, revealing that he had the power to stop them from hurting his friends.

At this, the other animatronics finally realizes their wrongdoings and that they have been attacking the wrong people. Golden Freddy speaks once again to all his friends, revealing himself as Michael. The other animatronics becomes much more docile and friendly around them, showing the intelligence behind the robots. The yellow bear slumps back to the corner as Carlton's father busts down a wall in the restaurant to rescue everyone.

However, as Charlie and her friends attempt to leave, William Afton, now wearing the Springtrap suit, grabs her by the neck and threatens to kill her unless the party obeys him. Enraged at her assailant, Charlie punches him, and finally causes every last spring lock in his suit to go off rapidly, sending Afton to a slow and painful end. One by one, the four animatronics approach him and drag their dying murderer into the darkness of the pizzeria to complete their revenge, with Golden Freddy finally disappearing into the afterlife.

Five Nights at Freddy's: The Twisted OnesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • It is heavily implied that Golden Freddy is a spring lock suit, like Springtrap, in the sense of the ability to be both an animatronic and a wearable suit, given that the Purple Guy was originally theorized to have worn the Golden Freddy suit to lure the five children to the back and killed them, the endoskeleton is visible in the images of Golden Freddy, shares the yellow color, and in one of the minigames in Five Nights at Freddy's 3, Golden Freddy is shown entertaining children on a stage alongside Springtrap.
  • Since Golden Freddy has the phrase "It's Me" whenever he is summoned, and crashes the game if one has 1-9-8-7 as the custom A.I. in the Custom Night, many players suspected that he was the cause of the Bite of '87. This does not work on the updated version of the first game.
  • As of version 1.13, setting the A.I. levels to 1/9/8/7 on Custom Night causes Golden Freddy's kill screen to appear, forcing the game to close. This was put in by Scott Cawthon to end the rumors of the Bite of '87, stating that entering the input 1/9/8/7 would have an alternate ending.
  • Many theories say Golden Freddy was originally brown, but being in the dark, never being used or the lighting turned him yellow, but in the third game, this theory was confirmed to be false, because, in the "Stage01" minigame, Golden Freddy still retains his color.
  • Golden Freddy's kill screen is similar to the Freddy hallucination screen but is colored gold and without eyes.
  • In the trailer for Five Nights at Freddy's 2, one of the children's drawings, depicts Golden Freddy with the endoskeleton eyes singing to them.
  • The animatronic noise that killed Phone Guy is the same as Golden Freddy's, implying that he killed him.
  • Golden Freddy's scream in Five Nights at Freddy's is a slowed down version of the other animatronics' scream, supporting the theory that the Puppet stuffed deceased children in the animatronic suits (as seen in the "Give Gifts, Give Life" minigame) with the fifth child possessing Golden Freddy. This theory is confirmed in the third game, most evidently in "Happiest Day".
    • In Five Nights at Freddy's 2, its scream is also different, being a louder version of the normal scream, and clips midway.
  • Before the third game, Golden Freddy was believed to be the suit the Murderer wore to kill the children, however, it is later revealed in later games that Springtrap was the suit used, but the theory is still popular.
  • Golden Freddy can be seen on Night 2 of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, as seen in this video at 4:24.
  • Although his full name is Michael Brooks in The Silver Eyes, the events of the novel, while considered canon by the creator, is an alternate continuity to the game series. The Survival Logbook heavily hints that Golden Freddy's name is actually Cassidy.
  • In the game files for Five Nights at Freddy's 3, Phantom Freddy's file name is Golden Freddy.
  • In Freddy in Space 2, Golden Freddy is the only playable character who still looks like an animatronic, unlike the other characters.
  • Golden Freddy is one of the few animatronics who doesn't appear in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. However, there is an Easter Egg which may relate to him. In the Curse of Dreadbear, after completing a level, the player can find inside the warehouse three Halloween posters which previously appeared in the images of the salvaged animatronics from Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator. If the player throws some darts at the posters when they're identical, then the sentence "IT'S ME" will appear, along with music and flashing lights.
  • Strangely, Withered Golden Freddy in Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is more beaten up than his version in the original. It is unknown why Golden Freddy seems to be less damaged in the first game, since FNaF takes place after the events of FNaF 2, and would have likely not have been repaired.
    • Their jumpscares also differ. In the first game Golden Freddy's jumpscare crashes the game, while in the second game Withered Golden Freddy's jumpscare only kills the player and doesn't crash the game.
