While you aren't looking, mini-Freddies (Freddles) will accumulate on your desk and around the office. Shine your flashlight to scare them away. If you let too many of them gather together then Nightmare Freddy will be summoned, ending your run with a jumpscare.

  • At the first few teasers for the Ultimate Custom Night, Nightmare Freddy and his Freddles used to be separated characters for the Ultimate Custom Night, but they were merged in favor of other characters.
  • One of Nightmare Freddy's quotes suggest that Michael Afton is being played as in the UCN.
    • But another theory suggests you are playing as William Afton, going through hell and facing everyone he has murdered.
  • Nightmare Freddy and the Freddles were programmed at 60%.
  • On April 1st, Scott Cawthon supposedly added Nightmare Freddy's mechanic (along with Foxy and Phone Guy.) However, the mechanic turned out to be an April Fool's Prank, referencing the popular dream theory about FNaF 4. The mechanic reads:
He appears suddenly in your office holding an alarm clock. You have only a moment to press the button and activate the alarm. If you press the button in time, you will awaken in your bed for ten seconds before falling back asleep and continuing the night.
