Golden Freddy was Originally known as Yellow Bear, until Scott agreed on a fanname. He can be triggered by locating the Golden Freddy poster (is mostly a picture of Freddy Fazbear and Golden Freddy is very rare) on camera 2B. Once seen, if the player closes the camera at anytime, Golden Freddy then appears in the middle of the Office and screams at you, then crashes the game. His appearance causes some hallucinations such as the words "It's me" flashing on the screen. Even if both doors are closed, you can not stop golden Freddy from coming into the office if you see the poster.


Golden freddy is a dirty light and dark gold.He has a black top hat and black bowtie. He also has no eyes. Golden freddy has black freckles, similar to Freddy.

Custom Night

After an update, inputting the A.I. levels 1-9-8-7 (the year of the bite of '87) on Night 7, Golden Freddy's jumpscare will play, crashing the game in the process.

Movement Pattern

Golden Freddy lacks a movement pattern and is the only one who does this in the first game. Instead of actually moving, on a rare chance on Night 1, and an even rarer chance of seeing him on Night 3 he will appear on the West Hall Corner camera, where the Freddy poster can be seen and it will be shown as a close up of Golden Freddy's face. If you put the monitor down, he will move from there to the Office, and by doing this, you would need to put the monitor up again, or die in the process.


Five Nights at Freddy’s

FNaF world

Ultimate Custom Night


  • Golden Freddy can appear when doors are closed, e.g. it can teleport into the Office.
  • Golden Freddy was a fan-given name for the first game. Its real name, according to the game files, is Yellow Bear. On the Custom Night screen for Five Nights at Freddy's 2, however, his name is shown to be Golden Freddy.
  • Since it's not seen in-camera and can disappear, there is a high possibility that it is, in fact, a hallucination. However, until there is a confirmation, this possibility can be considered just a fan made theory.
  • Golden Freddy is seemingly confirmed to exist (in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, at least) thanks to the final call in the second game where a spare suit, referred to as the "Yellow one" is reported to have been used. It is not confirmed yet, because it can also refer to the other "yellow suit," Springtrap.
  • In the first game, it is really easy to deflect Golden Freddy's jumpscare, just pull the monitor back up and he will leave the office until you see the poster again.
  • Golden Freddy is implied to be the one who ultimately killed Phone Guy, as his jumpscare noise plays at the end of the call.
  • Golden Freddy features in the Five Nights At Freddy's 3 minigame "Stage 01"
  • Many Fans theorized that Golden Freddy is the Child bitten by Fredbear, using evidence such as the Happiest Day minigame. However there are many clues that contradict this, such as the problem of what happened to the fifth victim of the Missing Children's Incident.
  • In FNaF 1 Golden Freddy has a girl laugh.
  • In the Freddy Files, it says he and Fredbear are the same being.
    • This could mean that Golden Freddy is Fredbear without an endoskeleton.
  • Decoding the code of the Logbook implies the name of the Golden Freddy ghost is Cassidy.
  • Golden Freddy is the only being that is capable of crashing your game while Nightmare is only capable of restarting your game and The Puppet can fly but is incapable of doing what Golden Freddy can do.
    • Because of his power it is theorized that Golden Freddy is the mastermind behind Ultimate Custom Night and created Ultimate Custom Night as a purgatory for William Afton, and in the Old Man Consequences Easter egg it is believed that he is telling Golden Freddy to leave William to his fate and when you drown yourself the game crashes.
      • It is also theorized that Cassidy aka the child who possesses Golden Freddy is the one William should not have killed.

Withered Golden Freddy is a dead soul in a Golden Freddy suit.


Withered Golden Freddy's appearance has not changed much. He does look more damaged than he did in the first game as he is missing one ear and has a few wires coming out of his eye socket. His head also appears to be tilting to the left instead of the right like he did so in FNaF 1.


Withered Golden Freddy has two movement patterns, one is appearing in the Office Hall and jumpscaring you if you stare at it too long. The second version of his first movement is to appear as a disembodied head in the hall like the first time but instead, you don't look at it too long and put the monitor up, and then you put it down and he appears in your Office. His second movement is just to appear in the Office and then he will disappear if not putting the monitor down, he will jumpscare you as a disembodied head. The only way to evade the hallway jumpscare is to flash the flashlight quickly down the hallway, like a camera flash, and if he is there, the player should not use the flashlight until he goes away. If he appears in the office, put down the mask. A tactic that the player should use is when the monitor is put down, the player should immediately put on the mask. On PC, the player must flick the mouse on the camera tab and very quickly flick it at the mask tab. This tactic can also help with any animatronics that appears in front of the player when they put down the monitor. The characters that are evaded with the tactic are Toy Freddy, Withered Freddy, Withered Chica, Withered Bonnie and Shadow Bonnie. This tactic can also be used on mobile. The player must position their thumbs or fingers over the buttons to quickly be able to switch between the monitor and mask.


Golden Freddy has only two functions, one is to be a rogue element meaning that in game terms he has no real reason of being there as he does not ever appear on the monitor, and two he helps balance out the custom night challenges.


  • Golden Freddy acts the same in this game as the first as he appears at random times.
  • When his head is in the hall, it appears to be bigger than it actually is. It's unclear why this is, although golden Freddy could just be a hallucination or ghost, meaning that he wouldn't need to obey the laws of physics, which could also explain the teleporting and fading away.
  • it is theorized that the rare endoskeleton easter egg (that can appear in the prize room and vents) belongs to Golden Freddy, thus why golden Freddy looks empty
  • In the SAVE THEM minigame, Golden Freddy can appear in the various rooms. If the player moves near him, he will disappear.
