Fredbear is the original mascot of Fredbear's Family Diner, and the cause of the Bite of 83.


Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Fredbear is first mentioned as the mascot of Fredbear's Family Diner by Phone Guy.

Five Night at Freddy's 3

While Fredbear once again does not physically appear in Five Night at Freddy's 3, Phone Guy (via the employee training tapes) mentions that there are two springlock suits, and that one of them is specifically a Spring Bonnie suit. The other suit is speculated to be Fredbear's, and it is heavily emphasized in the next game.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

Fredbear was seen in the FNaF 4 Restaurant alongside Spring Bonnie, being used as an animatronic and a suit. Eventually, on the Crying Child's birthday, the boy is thrown into Fredbear's jaw's while he is singing. This causes the animatronic to malfunction, chomping the mouth down and crushing the Child's head.

He appears in Nightmare form in the main gameplay as Nightmare Fredbear.

  • Fredbear may be named after Scott Cawthon's orginal name for Freddy: "Freddybear"
  • Fredbear bears a strong resemblance to Golden Freddy, to the point of them likely being two versions of the same animatronic.
  • It was believed by some that the incident that Fredbear caused was the Bite of 87, however it was indirectly confirmed that this incident was the Bite of 83.
  • Fredbear is the only animatronic from Fazbear Entertainment that was never discovered and reused for Fazbear's Fright. It was technically unknown what happened to his suit after years when the diner shuts down, but it was assumed that his suit could be entirely lost after the events of Five Nights at Freddy's 2.


Nightmare Fredbear is an animatronic in the game Five Nights at Freddy's 4. He is the nightmare version of Golden Freddy.


Nightmare Fredbear will only become active on Night 5. Every other Nightmare will cease activity, leaving him as the lone enemy.

He will approach from either hallway, with a deep laugh signifying movement. He can be seen in the hallway with the flashlight, however will not move out of sight. If he is seen in the hallway, the player must close the door and wait for his laugh. Only then can they move away from the door. He will appear on the bed as just a head, and will jumpscare the player if they do not use the light to deter him. He will also appear in the closet, and the player must shut the door to get rid of him.
