Protagonists Wiki

Michael Afton (also known as Mike SchmidtFritz Smith & Eggs Benedict) is the main protagonist of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise. He is William Afton's oldest child. Before being scooped, Michael was a caucasian male with brown hair and blue eyes.

Due to his father's ignorance of him, Michael grew to hate his younger brother, tormenting him constantly. Eventually, Michael accidentally murdered his brother by putting him in Fredbear's mouth.

After learning of his father's actions, Michael took on multiple fake aliases as he began to hunt him down. Michael was offered at job at many Fazbear diners, but was eventually fired as a result of "tampering with the animatronics" (most likely attempting to set the trapped souls free).

After he was scooped, his body started to get rotten until his skin became purple, he lost his hair, and his eyes became black with white pupils. Michael appears in this game as the main protagonist. He works as a technician and was presumably hired by his father to free his sister's soul from Baby.

After night 5, if the player chose to follow Baby's indications, Michael will get scooped by Ennard, who will take his body. If the player decided to do not follow Baby's indications, Michael will have to survive for the rest of the night from Ennard. He will then go home but Ennard will chase him.

In the custom night's minigames, it can be seen that Michael's body started getting rotten until Ennard abandoned it. Baby's voice then kept repeating "You won't die" and after that Michael came back to life. His voice can be heard in the Golden Freddy cutscene.

Michael eventually burned down a restaurant, setting all of the trapped souls free, including his father, who was at this point trapped in the Spring Bonnie suit. Michael, however, died in the process.


Michael is the protagonist of the video games, serving as the protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's, Five Nights at Freddy's 3, Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location and Five Nights at Freddy's: Pizzeria Simulator, the deuteragonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, and as the main antagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 4.
