Yes…another bear. If I had a nickel for every time a new bear was introduced into the FNAF Lore, I would have like two dollars or something.
Jokes aside, Lefty is an important character in the lore of Five Nights At Freddy’s. They play a big role in Henry’s grand plan during FNAF Pizzeria Simulator.
I love Lefty. The Puppet is one of my all-time favorite FNAF characters. While Lefty is their own entity, I kind of consider them to be an extension of The Puppet.
Today I want to tell you the story of Lefty from Five Nights At Freddy’s. As you may know, the FNAF lore is very cryptic and intricate. If I missed anything or got anything wrong, let me know on social media!
The Lore Of Lefty In Five Nights At Freddy’s
In order to understand the purpose of Lefty in the Five Nights At Freddy’s lore, you need to know the basics of the story surrounding Pizzeria Simulator.
In Five Nights At Freddy’s Pizzeria Simulator, a new restaurant is opened by William Afton’s partner, Henry. The restaurant is a decoy meant to trap all of the possessed animations in the same area.
As the week goes on, the antagonists of the series show up at the new restaurant to continue their evil deeds. One surprising addition to this crew is a black bear animatronic named Lefty.
While many of the games’ antagonists are still alive and well (well, as alive and well as you can be haunting a worn-down robot), there is one protagonist that is still roaming around. This is none other than Henry’s daughter, Charlotte. As many fans already know, Charlotte was murdered by Willam Afton. Charlotte’s soul was then fused with a character known as The Puppet.
Throughout the series, we see The Puppet play the role of protector for the murdered children. When Henry opens the decoy restaurant, he knows that his daughter would not willingly show up to the party. This is where Lefty comes into play.
Lefty is an animatronic created by Henry whose sole purpose is to capture The Puppet and bring them to the new pizzeria. Lefty, or L.E.F.T.E, actually stands for ‘Lure, Encapsulate, Fuse, Transport, Extract’. We learn this from the hidden blueprints found in FNAF Pizzeria Simulator.
While playing Pizzeria Simulator, you can tell that Lefty has completed its mission of capturing The Puppet. If you look at the gaps in between Lefty’s costume pieces, you can see the familiar black and white stripes of The Puppet’s arms and legs.
Five Nights At Freddy’s Ultimate Custom Night
Lefty is also a selectable character in FNAF UCN. In Ultimate Custom Night, Lefty becomes more active as the office becomes hotter and louder. Much like The Puppet, Lefty can be kept away with the use of the music box.
Lefty has five voice lines in Ultimate Custom Night. Most of these voice lines play with the idea that Lefty was meant to capture animatronics inside of their body.
“Shh, it’ll be all over soon.”
“Shh, there is room for one more.”
“Shh, come spend eternity inside with me.”
“Shh, I’ve been looking for you, and now I’ll never let you go.”
“Shh, I’m so glad that I found you. Let me make room for you.”
For those who don’t know, FNAF Ultimate Custom Night is the game that comes after Pizzeria Simulator. From a lore perspective, many speculate that it is William Afton’s personal hell. He must pay the price by continually being killed by his own creations and the people he has harmed.
