Nightmare Foxy is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's and a returning character in Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted's DLC pack, Curse of Dreadbear. He's the nightmarish counterpart of the original version of Foxy.
Nightmare Foxy is a tall, dark reddish fox animatronic with a lighter red on his muzzle extending to the tufts of fur on either side of his head, on his lower jaw, chest, and the rings around his eye sockets. He has a darker shade of red inside of his tattered, oval-like ears. His mouth is full of sharp teeth. He has a few stray wired poking out of the top of his head. He has a tear from the top of his right eye socket up to the top of his head. He has metallic eyeballs with glowing, bright orange eyes and beady black pupils. The fabric on his muzzle is almost completely gone, exposing the many metal rings that make up his snout.
His torso is thinner than most of the other Nightmare Animatronics. He has withering all over his body. He has brown "pants" that are ripped away just above the knees, revealing his metallic, ribbed endoskeleton legs and feet, each having four sharp toes. His left hand has five fingers, each jointed, and ending with sharp metallic claws. His right hand is replaced by a large, metal hook. He is also equipped with a segmented tongue ending in a sharp point, however his tongue was only shown in the "Was It Me?" teaser.
Based on the original version of Foxy the Pirate Fox, Nightmare Foxy was one of the seven Nightmare Animatronics that appeared in Five Nights at Freddy's 4. Their background history are still a mystery.
In Help Wanted, Nightmare Foxy made his appearance in The Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience along with the other Nightmare Animatronics.

Nightmare Foxy's main appearance is in Spooky Mansion's first stage, Hallway Crawl. He will appear in the hallway when the lightning flashes. The player must stop when they see him. If they continue to move, Nightmare Foxy will charge toward them and end their run with a jumpscare. If the player is close enough to Nightmare Foxy when the lightning flashes, he will turn into a plushie and cease to be a threat.

- Nightmare Foxy turning into a plushie may be a reference to an old theory that the Nightmare Animatronics are the protagonist's toys coming to life.
