The Marionette is an animatronic puppet and is considered the main antagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He returns in Ultimate Custom Night as a selectable character.

He's one of the ten Five Night at Freddy's 2 selectable characters, along with the toy animatronics, Mangle, Balloon Boy, Jay Jay, the withered animatronics and Golden Freddy.

Menu Description

Keep his music box wound or he will come to get you! The global music box also works on him.


The Marionette starts in the kitchen and is always there. He's never seen, however, considering the kitchen camera does not work properly. Like in the second game, the Puppet resides in its music box. The player needs to wind up the music box to keep him tamed. The global music box can also be used; it is more effective, but drains more power and can't be used at the same time as the power generator or any other monitor mechanic. If they neglect his music box, then it will break free of his box. Once out, he can't be put back inside.

The ventilation system will drain much faster than before, eventually leading to blackout and an inevitable game over. The Marionette's jumpscare is very different from his FNaF 2 one, as only his face appears, instead of his whole body swinging fastly toward the player.

Death Quotes

I recognize you... but I'm not afraid of you. Not anymore...
I don't hate you, but you need to stay out of my way.
The others are like animals, but I'm very aware.
Seeing you powerless is like music to me.
The others are under my protection.


  • The Marionette and his mechanics are likely inspired by the popular Jack-in-the-box children's toy, due to the fact that he comes from a box, music precedes his attack, and he (supposedly) launches itself to attack.
  • The Marionette is believed to be sentient and sapient as, in FNaF 2, the Phone Guy states that he is "always thinking".
    • This is further evidentiated by one his death quote, "the others are like animals, but I'm very aware".
  • It is unknown how the Marionette traverses the pizzeria. It has no actual feet and his legs and torso seem incapable of supporting his body.
  • Oddly, the Marionette's mask bears a resemblance to the No-Face/Kaonashi from the Japanese anime movie Spirited Away.
  • Even though it is confirmed that the spirit possessing the Marionette is that of a female (as seen in the Security Puppet minigame in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator), he is treated as a male.
