Five Nights at Freddy’s 5: the Sister Location
This storyline is mostly my ideas along with the teasers for FNAF: Sister Location and elements from FNAF 1.
A year has passed since the events of the 4th movie. Nick and Jenny are still together and working at the reopened Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza as temporary day shift guards. The rights to the pizzeria franchise have been temporarily given to Jeremy Fitzgerald after John C. Franklin suddenly became gravely ill; although he’s still alive, the eccentric billionaire was rendered unable to run the restaurant himself. Helping Jeremy are Mike Schmidt and Fritz Smith aka Phone Guy; they continue to watch over the establishment they’ve come to enjoy, while the ghost of Frank Fazbear has “moved on.”
One day, while going through old documents from the franchise’s past, Nick finds a note regarding a “Sister Location” of which he has never heard of. Mike and Jeremy reveal that the only thing they knew of this “Sister Location” was that it was where springlock suits failed and killed multiple people, which caused the discontinuation of the existing suits. The animatronics have no knowledge of the “Sister Location” either, as it was most likely built “before we came to be.” However, Fritz Smith reveals that it was a location built in the early 80s that was testing new animatronics to possibly be used in Fredbear’s Family Diner (as Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza didn’t open until 1985). However, the animatronics were never revealed to the public due to safety issues that couldn’t be fixed, along with a possible gas leak in the location (though he admits the latter was a cover story).
Nick shows a small interest in seeing what this “Sister Location” was like, though it’s shown that few others share his enthusiasm because of their previous experience with forgotten animatronics and Springtrap. However, upon asking Freddy and his friends, they suggest that the group “bring some lost friends home.” The group finally agrees, but only if the animatronics remain at the pizzeria, which is under renovations at the time. Although greatly disappointed, they reluctantly agree to do so.
The group is joined by Nick’s younger cousin Jimmy, as Uncle George has decided to remain at home. The “Sister Location” is revealed to be housed underneath what appears to be a long-since-closed industrial plant. After a ride underground on an open cage elevator, the group finds a laboratory that Jeremy notes “looks like it came straight out of Jurassic Park.” Nick manages to find the power and activates the entire place; by doing this, he also inadvertently reactivates the unproduced animatronics.
Around 3 am, the group hasn’t encountered the newly active characters yet. Nick talks about fixing the unproduced models and revealing them to the public. However, Fritz tries to convince him otherwise, saying they were “too dangerous for the general public.” Suddenly, the group encounters one of the unproduced characters, who goes on to introduce himself as Funtime Foxy. Jeremy initially mistakes the character for Mangle, but is told that “we’ve never had a ‘Mangle’ down here.”
Funtime Foxy goes on to introduce the group to the other three: Circus Baby (or Baby for short), Ballora, and Funtime Freddy. The four go onto perform their show, which earns them a good amount of applause from everyone but Fritz, who observes the show with caution and unease. Nick goes on to tell the unused characters of the plan to bring them to the pizzeria and perform for the public; as expected, the unused characters are shown to be greatly pleased at leaving their “prison” and doing “what we were supposed to do.”
Before leaving the “Sister Location”, Nick and his friends are pulled aside by Fritz, who repeats his ultimatum to leave the unused characters. This causes Jeremy to question why, which prompts the “Phone Guy” to lead the group to a computer and open a file on the unproduced characters. The results are horrifying; it’s shown that the “Sister Location” was supposed to be called “Circus Baby’s Pizza World”. However, mere days before it was to officially open, the unproduced characters attacked and killed a small test audience, which included Frank Fazbear’s sister Carly. These events, along with the Fredbear Bite, ended up giving franchise CEO Fredrick “Freddy” Fazbear a heart attack and forced him to not only close Fredbear’s Family Diner, but resign from directly running the franchise.
Nick is horrified by what he discovers and reluctantly agrees to leave the “Sister Location”. However, when the group reaches the elevator, it is shown that a key is required to activate the controls. Suddenly, they are attacked by Funtime Foxy, who forces the group to separate and flee through the facility. Jimmy runs to a storage closet, where he finds Ballora crying; she reveals that Baby and the others are the reason why they were never produced and intend to keep the group with them permanently, having set the exit to be blocked off at 6 am. Ballora goes on to lament how she never got to fulfill her dream of performing for children. Jimmy gains sympathy for the ballerina and promises to help her.
At the same time, Mike and Jeremy manage to reach the computer room; there, Mike looks up the design of the springlock suits out of curiosity. He finds that Patrick “Purple” Mann was on the design team for one of the unproduced characters, though the name and blueprints of said character are not listed. Jeremy instantly suspects that the murderer corrupted Baby and her friends much like he did the Puppet and toy animatronics, but Mike remains skeptical on the grounds that Mann didn’t start his killing spree until after the Fredbear Bite.
Around 5 am, Nick and Jenny manage to reach a phone room and manage to contact Freddy and the gang for help. Suddenly, they are captured by Funtime Freddy and brought to the stage, where Baby has already captured Fritz and Jimmy. She goes on to lament on how she and the other unproduced characters desperately wanted to perform for the public and how hard they worked to perfect their act, but were not allowed to do so, especially after the springlock suits were scrapped because of the deaths/injuries caused by them. Baby then goes on to admit that all four of the unproduced characters are springlock suits and that they were even more dangerous than Springtrap, as shown by parts of their costumes fluttering after sudden motions.
Nick attempts to reason with Baby, stating how he, Mike, and Jeremy will “fix you so you’re safe for people.” However, Baby accuses Nick of lying, just as Fritz had apparently done when he initially shut them down. Ballora then speaks up in an attempt to calm the clown girl, saying that “we can accomplish our dreams” if they agree to be fixed; this only prompts Baby to throw a tantrum and accuse the ballerina of being “worthless” and “against me the whole time.” Fritz then rants about how much trouble Baby was during testing and that she’s the one who is really worthless.
At this point, Baby starts crying angry tears and orders Funtime Freddy and Funtime Foxy to kill the group; suddenly, the doors to the room open to reveal Jeremy and Mike, who have recovered the elevator key; also accompanying them is Freddy and the gang, who manage to dispose of the Funtime counterparts, rescue the group, and leave Baby underneath a collapsed stage. However, Jimmy refuses to leave Ballora behind and convinces Nick and Jenny to go back to rescue her. They manage to do so, but Baby escapes from her confinement and chases after them, losing parts of her costume in the process because of her rage. By the time she manages to catch up with the duo on the elevator, half of Baby’s face is nothing more than an endoskeleton covered in bloodstains from long past.
Jenny is quickly knocked unconscious, but Nick manages to stop Baby from killing her, but breaks an arm in the process. Just before the clown girl is able to kill both of them, Jeremy jumps down from the roof and shoves a taser into Baby’s face. However, the animatronic manages to knock Jeremy off of the elevator to his apparent doom. Baby laughs about how she’s apparently won, but is answered by Jeremy, who hangs from a bar on the elevator’s bottom. At this point, a massive explosion rocks the elevator, causing Baby to lose her balance and fall until she grabs Jeremy, who quickly loses grip. Baby is seen screaming as she falls into the smoke, while the former guard seems to follow.
Nick and Jenny lament the death of their friend, but are suddenly interrupted by a grunting sound coming from below. Looking over the side of the elevator, they are relieved to find a badly injured Jeremy climbing a wire suspended from the elevator, while Baby is revealed to have fallen to her doom. Nick and Jenny manage to pull the former guard into the elevator, reach the exit, and escape. Soon afterwards, the industrial plant façade of the “Sister Location” bursts into flames.
Jeremy ends up nearly dying in the hospital because of his injuries, which include five broken ribs, a concussion, and a great loss of blood; his stay ends up being six months, but he manages to recover. Sadly, John C. Franklin ends up passing away in his sleep, leaving Mike, Jeremy, and Fritz in permanent control of the franchise. Nick and the others spend the time giving Ballora some well-deserved updates to her design so she can’t hurt anyone. Finally, the ballerina is ready to perform and, despite initial worries that nobody will like her, debuts with a good amount of public acclaim.
Later on, Nick meets with Jeremy at the pizzeria to discuss the future. As the two leave the office to watch the animatronics perform, Mike questions if “Purple” Mann corrupted Baby as he did the Puppet and the toy animatronics; Jeremy replies that “she corrupted herself.” Mike then wonders if “she could’ve been saved,” to which Fritz replies, “Perhaps some things are best left forgotten.”

Bonnie: Guitarist of the Fazbear Band; he’s not as enthusiastic as Freddy is about the “Sister Location”, but goes along with it anyways. He’s also angry that his “Sister Location” counterpart is only a hand puppet
Chica: Backup singer of the Fazbear Band; she hopes that the “Sister Location” characters will be allowed to perform for real, especially after seeing how Balloon Girl turned out. In the end, she becomes friends with Ballora, but is shocked by how mean Baby is.
Foxy: The Pirate Fox is the only one truly against finding the “Sister Location” characters, as he thinks they will cause trouble like the Toy Animatronics and the Puppet. He is also shown to hate the design of Funtime Foxy, partly because of the resemblance to Mangle.
Baby: An animatronic in the form of a clown girl; although she seems cute and cuddly during performances, she is actually a spoiled brat who throws tantrums when things don’t go her way (or when people don’t stay in their seats) and blames Fritz for her not being produced.
Ballora: An animatronic in the form of a ballet dancer; although she seems graceful during her performance, offstage she is perpetually sad because she never saw the light of day (and she has to deal with the other unproduced characters) and cries almost all the time. She’s the only “Sister Location” character who is actually nice.
