Nightmare Foxy is a supporting antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise, serving as a major antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 and a posthumous antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. He is the nightmarish version of Foxy the Pirate Fox. He also represents the Big Brother.

Appearance

Nightmare Foxy appears as a plushie in his harmless form, and as a rotten, damaging and frightening animatronic in his actual form.

His actual form is a tall reddish-orange anthropomorphic fox with a hook for his right hand, which is also used to attack the protagonist. He has a big mouth with two sets of sharp teeth and two glowing, sinister orange eyes. His endoskeleton is exposed to the feet and legs, revealing rows of spikes that formerly serve as toes.

Personality

As a nightmare, Foxy is much more vicious, dangerous and faster than his corporeal counterpart, making him a brutal killer.

Behavior

Nightmare Foxy will commonly become active Night 2 onwards, although he may rarely become active on Night 1. He starts out at the back of the house and can try to enter the bedroom through either hallway. Checking the wrong hallway while he is close to the bedroom will allow him to run into the room and creep inside the closet. He then hides in the closet and will slowly reveal himself.

Much like other games, neglecting to check on Nightmare Foxy will result in a game over. Going to the closet view, Foxy will either appear as a head or his complete body. If Nightmare Foxy is about to attack the player, he will chomp his jaws up and down and scream.

The only way to prevent his attack is the close the closet door. If successful, he will turn back into a foxy plush. Also, on any of the nights, even the first night, if you click the Freddy plush on your bed 20+ times or hold the flashlight on the bed for 15 seconds, Nightmare Foxy will come out to kill the player.


In the Hallway Crawl minigame from Curse of Dreadbear DLC of Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, he will randomly appear in front of the player, and, if he caughts him moving when there are thunders outside, the game will end in a jumpscare from the animatronic.

Trivia

  • He is the fourth incarnation of Foxy. The others were Mangle, Phantom Foxy, Funtime Foxy, and Rockstar Foxy.
    • However, unlike his predecessors, he lacks an eyepatch.
    • He also has a very long, yet small tongue.
      • However, this was never seen in-game or in the Extras menu. It is unknown why this is.
  • The words "Out Of Order" can be seen when brightening up Nightmare Foxy's image.
    • It was noted by 8bit-gaming that the position of 2 hooks looks like it may be a question mark, possibly making the phrase "Out Of Order?".
  • The word "Nightmare" is hidden in Foxy's teeth.
  • The numbers "87" can be seen in Foxy's eyes by darkening the image rather than brightening it.
  • Nightmare Foxy is the only one with a jumpscare that could be stopped if the closet is closed.
  • Nightmare Foxy is the only animatronic in the entire series to have some form of a tongue.
