The Puppet', also known as The Marionette, is an animatronic in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. It stays in the Prize Corner, and Jeremy Fitzgerald and Fritz Smith must wind up a music box or else it will attack the player.
The Puppet is a tall puppet looking figure. It is all black and white except for its face where it has red cheeks and two purple strips going from its eyes like tear tracks to its mouth It has three strips going on its arms and legs.
It functions for the main reason to check the camera to wind up the music box. Neglecting the music box will be a game over unless the player can hold out until 6 AM.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Edit
The Puppet will stay at the Prize Corner, where Jeremy and Fritz must wind up a music box to keep it calm. If the player does not wind up the music box, The Puppet will slowly rise out of its box and come straight for the player, resulting in a game over.
The Take Cake to the Children partially reveals it's origins, as it shows a child being murdered outside of the establishment by William Afton, followed by the Puppet's jumpscare, implying that child possessed it. The Give Gifts Give Life minigame depicted the Puppet giving the MCI victims new life in the animatronics. As well as this, the cutscenes reveal the Puppet still had a presence even in the FNaF 1 restaurant.
Five Nights at Freddy's 3 Edit
As well as the Phantom Puppet, the original puppet child is seen in the Happiest Day Minigame. The Child is wearing the Puppet's mask. When all the souls are present, it gives cake to the Golden Freddy soul, and the souls disappear, symbolically showing the souls passing into the afterlife. However the Puppets mask falls slower than the others. In the gameplay the original Puppet can be seen, casting a reflection.
Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator Edit
The original Puppet is depicted in Security Puppet, which is set at the same time as Take Cake. it is required to find a child with a green security bracelet, and keep them away from the exit, but there will be no assigned child except if the game is played three times. On the third time playing the minigame, the assigned child is outside the establishment while the Puppet is trapped because of a gift box being placed on top of it's box.
The Puppet goes outside, but is damaged by the rain. the Puppet encounters the assigned child's dead body but the Puppet has now been discoloured and disabled and started to crawl. Once the Puppet crawled up to the dead child's body, it deactivates, hugging Charlotte's corpse, thus allowing her to possess it.
- While it is confirmed the Child that possessed the Puppet was female, it is unclear what gender the Puppet itself is supposed to be.
- It was unclear whether the original Puppet was present in Fazbear's Fright. It was eventually confirmed that it was present post FNaF 3.
- It has been widely theorised that Charlotte's soul is the one inhabiting the Fredbear Plush in the FNaF 4 minigames.
