|“||They've spent a small fortune on these new animatronics, uh, facial recognition, advanced mobility, they even let them walk around during the day. Isn't that neat? But most importantly, they're all tied into some kind of criminal database, so they can detect a predator a mile away. Heck, we should be paying them to guard you.||„|

|“||Uh, just as a side note though, try to avoid eye contact with any of the animatronics tonight if you can. Someone may have tampered with their facial recognition systems, we're not sure. But the characters have been acting very unusual, almost aggressive towards the staff. They interact with the kids just fine, but when they encounter an adult, they just... stare.||„|

|~ Toy Freddy's death quote from Five Nights at Freddy's: Ultimate Custom Night.|
Toy Freddy, is the redesigned version of Freddy Fazbear and a major antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.
He is a major antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, a posthumous antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 3, Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted and Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, and a minor character in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 (through a figurine). In Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, he has three skins called VR Toy Freddy, Woodland Toy Freddy, and Aeronaut Toy Freddy respectfully.
In the spin-offs, he is a supporting protagonist in FNAF World and a major antagonist (and arguably the deadliest) in Ultimate Custom Night.
He is voiced by Darren Roebuck.
Five Nights at Freddy's 4
Although Toy Freddy doesn't make an appearance in the game physically (As the game takes place four years before he was made), in one of the minigames, a little girl has a toy of Toy Freddy, hinting that although he wasn't an animatronic yet, he already existed in the pizzeria as a toy.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2
Toy Freddy has his debut in the second game, although technically this isn't the first game he appeared in chronologically. Unlike his counterpart, Toy Freddy is active on the first two nights. He starts on the Show Stage, then wanders into the Game Area.
He then continues into the hallway outside The Office and heads towards the player from there. His position while in the hallway can be revealed via the Flashlight. While Toy Freddy leans in before entering the Office, putting on the Freddy Fazbear Head will prevent him from entering.
When he is in The Office and the player lowers their monitor, Toy Freddy will stand in front of the desk with blackened eyes without pupils as the lights flicker before he vanishes. The player must immediately put on the Freddy Head the moment they see Toy Freddy to avoid imminent death. Delaying or neglecting to equip the Head will cause Toy Freddy to seemingly disappear, only to return to kill the player if they then take off the Head and/or put up and lower the monitor.
Just like the other new animatronics, Toy Freddy was scrapped at the end of Night 6 due to possible malfunctioning.
One of the minigames (SAVE THEM) implies that Toy Freddy is possessed by a child William Afton killed.
Five Nights at Freddy's 3
Toy Freddy reappears in Five Nights at Freddy's 3. 36 years after he was scrapped, the only thing left of Toy Freddy is his head. His head is seen in the box in the office, like with the other Toy animatronics. On Night 6, the attraction catches on fire, burning and destroying Toy Freddy. If he is possessed, this is the moment in which he's set free.
Five Nights at Freddy's: Ultimate Custom Night
Toy Freddy appears as an antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy's: Ultimate Custom Night. He hides in Parts and Services, playing the video game "Five Nights at Mr. Hugs". However, he is very bad at video games, so the player needs to help him by checking the cameras for Mr. Hugs and sealing the door connected to the hall Mr. Hugs are in. If the player fails, Mr. Hugs will jumpscare Toy Freddy (signified by Toy Freddy's screen reading "GAME OVER"), and once Toy Freddy has been jumpscared, there is nothing stopping him from jumpscaring the player.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted
Toy Freddy reappears as an enemy in the Five Nights at Freddy's 2 mode, functioning exactly the same as in the original game.
Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery
Toy Freddy appears as an event exclusive animatronic in Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, first appearing in the Valentine's Day event. His attacks are essentially similar to the other Toy Animatronics. When he goes haywire, the player must look at him while wearing the mask. However, Toy Freddy also has a mechanic where he can randomly drain the player's Battery quickly. To stop this, the player must quickly wear the mask until the effect stops.
Toy Freddy's appearance seems based on real robots. Indeed, he shares a design similar to the 1980's iteration of Chuck E. Cheese from Chuck E. Cheese's which featured a noticeably wider head and a softened and compressed facial structure while sporting a striped hat and vest-like design.
Toy Freddy's appearance is similar to that his original counterpart. He is a brown animatronic bear with lighter brown coloring on his belly, face, and inner ears. He has black whisker spots, black eyebrows, short eyelashes, blue eyes, and a black nose. As with the other Toy animatronics, Toy Freddy has rosy red, blushed cheeks. However, unlike the other Toy animatronics, he appears to have a matte coating rather than a glossy finish. Toy Freddy's face is a bit flatter, wider, and more block-shaped than Freddy's original facial design with his mouth and teeth being much more human-like.
He also seems to be the widest of the Toy animatronics, as his body has become much bulkier compared to that of the original Freddy's. He bears a black bow tie with two black buttons beneath it, a small, black, removable top hat with a red stripe, and a silver and black microphone in his right hand. Toy Freddy's eyes normally appear to be similar to those of the other animatronics, but upon entering The Office, his eyes turn to a glossy black, for unexplained reasons.
It appears that the closer Toy Freddy gets to the player, the more his jaw hangs open. This behavior is much like Chica from the first game. In fact, his jumpscare is similar to Freddy's in the first game, which would occur when the player runs out of power.
In his VR Toy Freddy form, Toy Freddy's body becomes a see-through neon purple, and his eyes are obscured by a VR headset. In his Woodland Toy Freddy form, it turns his normally metallic body into a wooden golem-like creature, with a split-open chest, mushrooms and moss growing on his body, and him holding a large branch. In his Aeronaut Toy Freddy form, Toy Freddy color palette becomes more muted and his limbs mismatched colors (with his right arm and left foot gold, while the other arm and leg matching his body's colors), with him now wearing a hat made out of scrap, large goggles (with the right eyepiece being made out of a gear), a brown trenchcoat, a large, red bowtie, a golden badge, a chest now exposing golden gears, metal "pants", a bag with a leather strap around his right shoulder, and a wrench taking the place of his microphone.
Like his counterpart, Toy Freddy appears to be a nice and harmless animatronic during the day, but turns into a cunning and psychotic robot the night. He shares many similarities with his elder, for instance, he is always the last to leave the Show Stage. He is the only animatronic to return to the Show Stage during the night, which means that the Show Stage might have a particular importance for him. He seems to be much more incompetent and dimwitted than his "big brother", as he lacks such leadership and is ultimately less smart.
After failing to drive off Toy Freddy, he may forcibly remove the Head or Monitor and end the player's night. Just like the other Toy animatronics, Toy Freddy is very inactive on later nights, though he starts becoming more active again starting on Night 5.
He is the only "Toy" animatronic to behave like the old animatronics when attacking, bringing down the Monitor first and then waiting for a period of time before killing the player. For quite obvious reasons, his jumpscare is similar to Freddy's in the first game, which would occur when the player runs out of power.
Also, players users are warned that Toy Freddy seems far more active in the mobile version of the game. It is unclear why this is so. Also, for an unknown reason, Toy Freddy will not appear in the Game Area on the mobile version of the game. Because of this, if the player is playing mobile and they cannot find Toy Freddy on the cameras or in the hallway, it may be likely he is hidden in the Game Area.
It is unknown if Toy Freddy is possessed by a dead child that William Afton killed or not, although the SAVE THEM minigame implies he is. But the child could be just not possess anyone, which leaves Toy Freddy as an animatronic that went hostile due to the faulty wiring.
