Phantom Chica is a major antagonist in the game Five Nights at Freddy's 3 and is one of the six phantom animatronics in the game, serving as one of the secondary antagonists of the actual gameplay of the game. She is a hallucination of a burned and damaged Chica.
Phantom Chica is essentially the same model as Chica from the first game, but she lacks eyes and instead has pin-pricked, white irises. She also looks to be charred or burnt, possibly foreshadowing the torching of the attraction.
Five Nights at Freddy's 3
Phantom Chica lacks a movement pattern, but rather randomly replaces the arcade machine's monitor with a distorted image of her face, the frequency of this occurring increases as the week progresses. If the player does not change Monitor views when this occurs, Phantom Chica will appear on the left side of the Office and proceed to lunge at the player if viewed, disappearing and disabling the ventilation system.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Ultimate Custom Night
Phantom Chica returns with a minor appearance in Ultimate Custom Night. Rather than being a customizable enemy, Phantom Chica instead makes a cameo appearance in the unlockable FNaF 3 offices. She can be seen on the screen of the arcade cabinet in that office.
- Phantom Chica is the only Phantom which resembles her FNAF 1 counterpart, unlike the other Phantoms, who are based on FNAF 2. In Help Wanted, Phantom Freddy and Phantom Foxy used their FNAF 1 models as well.
- Scott jokingly said on his Steam post that Phantom Chica is a watermelon. The fanbase refers her as a watermelon due to the fact that her phantom textures mixed with her rounded appearance make her look like a watermelon.
- This is referenced in Phantom Chica's loading screen in FNaF World, which says "Stop calling me a watermelon!".
- Phantom Chica is one of the two Phantom animatronics completely absent from Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, the other being Phantom Puppet.
