There are several Unused Features for Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. They are mostly found hidden in the game files.
The Blacklight Animatronics were blacklight versions of Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy from Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted. These counterparts originated from the blacklight editions of Funko's merchandise products (except Foxy). They are found in the Main Hub area in the game when in blacklight mode, but are never seen by the player as the curtains for both stages are completely shut. Blacklight Bonnie is also featured in his blacklight mode Parts and Service level, though due to the lighting of the level it is hard to notice it is actually the blacklight form.
The main three animatronics' completed textures and models exist in the files. However, Foxy lacks any texture besides his eyes.
- See also: Spring Bonnie
In the first few teasers for VR, Spring Bonnie was heavily implied to have been in the game at some point in development. However, in a later teaser Spring Bonnie was swapped out in favor of Nightmarionne, most likely due to them being cut from the game. Along with this, within the files, there is an unused Spring Bonnie texture. Spring Bonnie may have been cut in favor for Glitchtrap, as he is a version of Spring Bonnie. However this is not the case, as Spring Bonnie's design was traced from a fanmade model in the FNaF fangame POPGOES Memories.
In the Curse of Dreadbear DLC game files, there is a different texture for Freddles that is left unused. It was apparently supposed to be for Build-a-Mangle level in the Spooky Mansion section (presumably Hard Mode which is not available in Curse of Dreadbear). The texture looks Burned, thus the name Burned Freddles was given.
In the files of Help Wanted, a small, roundish model can be found, labeled "Toy Proxy". Proxy is missing all textures, and is a simple doll-like figure. It was most likely used for AI testings for Foxy within the FNaF 2 Challenge, as it can be difficult for Unreal Engine 4 to have two separate AIs for the same model.
Inside the files, a leftover and untextured model for Springtrap can be found. Said model is also labeled "Glitchtrap". It has no physical differences between it and Springtrap, with the exception of a small stitch-like indent on the upper left-hand side of his torso. It may be possible that this was supposed to be the original Glitchtrap, as it is the origin of Glitchtrap's name, but this is uncertain.
Completed Phantom BBFound inside the files was a finished Phantom Balloon Boy, featuring legs and a balloon. The entire model has textures and is completely finished. It is unknown why this was scrapped in favor of the final version, but it is possible that the legs were removed to match the other Phantom's more ghost-like designs.
Distorted ChicaWithin the Curse of Dreadbear start menu, Withered Bonnie & Withered Chica can be seen standing off in the distance, staring at the player. Originally however, Withered Chica was replaced by a distorted, mangled looking Chica, with her eyes missing, her beak detached and her arm disjointed. It is unknown why this was used, but it was later replaced with normal Withered Chica.
Babytrap's name and instructions are found deep within the text string files.Babytrap was presumed to be a replacement of Plushtrap in Dark Rooms Blacklight Mode, however, the AI also matches up to Plushbaby, implying that she was meant to be the original hardmode for his level.
There are a few unused models that may have been prizes at some point. One batch of models are colored tickets ranging from the numbers 5 to 5000. It is unknown what they may have been used for, but they might've had something to do with the prizes unlocked via Faz Token count. As well as that, there's an unused model for a fried chicken box labeled "Processed Poultry Proxy". The box is a dull red with white decals and text. As well as this, Chica appears on a few sides of the box.
Norman BedroomWithin Help Wanted, there's a prop labeled as "NormanBedroom". Many people when seeing this file name believed it to be a name reveal of the Bite Victim from Five Nights at Freddy's 4. It was later found that this wasn't the case, as it was a prop purchased online, and "NormanBedroom" was the default name upon purchase. The prop is an untextured table, that goes entirely unused.
Showtime Stage Performance
The performance of the original animatronics is already teased by Scott since the game was first announced. However, this later becomes a problem as he couldn't find the right voice for Freddy Fazbear. And unfortunately, the feature was lastly temporarily removed from the game, and the button labelled "Showtime" in the Main Hub remains unused.
A file can be found in the game, however, showing the animation of the animatronics as well as the music of the performance. The lyrics have been prepared as well, but the voice of the animatronics are just placeholders. And in the early access version of the game, Kellen Goff, Joe Gaudet and Amber Lee Connors was credited as Freddy, Bonnie and Chica respectively. However, this is removed from the final version of the game as well.
In the game file, there are several files placed in a folder called "MultiPlayer". The folder consists of files called "CharacterInfo", "CharacterInfoTable", "MPGameMode" etc. This might hint that a Multiplayer Mode was planned for the game, but it was unsure if this was scrapped or planned for future use.
Mangle's Vent Repair
In the Mangle level of Vent Repair, there is a development note written outside the map of the level. In the note, it states that another vent placed on the ceiling was originally planned, but was removed from the game.
Princess Quest Unused Features
Princess Quest includes a variety of minor unused features within the files, all of which are simple sprites.
There are two different environment set pieces found within the files that go completely unused. One is of an ice covered dungeon environment with a strange blue flooring. It's unclear where this area would've been used, however based off the sizes of the sprites, it seems to have been a very small room. The other is a sprite of a large pond surrounded by small rocks. Within the pond, there are two large boulders covered in glowing light blue mushrooms.
Another two unused assets are the sword and the Old Man. The sword appears in a scrapped attacking animation for The Princess, and the Old Man seems to be a scrapped NPC. Nothing about the two features, apart from their sprites, is known. Finally, the last unused asset is a glitched text meant for the amalgamation that when translated simply says, "It's Me".
Other Unused Features
Some animation files was found in the game file, containing the animation of Freddles jumpscaring the player and them going under the bed. Freddles only appear in the Hard Mode of Repair Freddy in Parts and Service, but have no threat to the player, so it was unknown why the file is there.
However, in Build-a-Mangle, the jumpscare animation was used but as a distraction to the player, but the unused animation of a Freddle going under the bed is still left unused.
In the files, two unused colored variant models for the Plushbabies are found: One in darker blue dress without a red stitch and the other in orange/yellow dress with both eyes. These plushbabies were reused for the Hardmode level as decoys, and are mainly considered "unused" due to animations of the Plushbabies being applicable to them.
Previously in the FNaF 2 segment, the Withered Animatronics are absent, including Withered Foxy which was replaced with Foxy in the game. However, a Withered Foxy model can be found in the game file, but is unfinished with lack of textures and a missing left arm.
Along with this, two other unused models of the Withereds can be found in the Curse of Dreadbear game file. One of Withered Bonnie, who is missing the wires coming out of his right arm and most of his Endoskeleton. The other was an unused Withered Chica, which is mostly finished with the exception of her lacking a bib.
There is also a texture in the game that is a scanned photo of one of the pages in The Freddy Files. It shows the path that the Withered Animatronics take in FNaF 2. This could possibly mean that they are planned to be included in the game, but was removed for unknown reason.
In a later update the main four Withered Animatronics were added in the FNaF 2 segment.
There are several Unused Features for Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery. They are mostly found in the game files.
Easter Chica is the only unused skin within the games files. The skin has no information on it other than it's name, though it's likely that it could've been either a skin that Easter Bonnie would end up replacing, or possibly it was a source file name for Chocolate Chica, a merch exclusive skin that has yet to be added to the game.
There are several texts found in the game file, all starting with "Faz-Facts:". These facts are about the Freddy Fazbear's Pizza franchise, and is actually helpful to explain the timeline in the FNaF series. However, these are scrapped for unknown reason and cannot be found in the actual game.
|“||The original animatronics featured spring lock suits that had to be hand cranked to allow them to be worn safely by employees.||”|
|“||Fazbear's "Twisted" Pizza Recipe was voted "Most Yummy!" by 6 out of 10 children in every survey from 1988-1993!||”|

There are several texts found in the game file, these email are about the lore of Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery. However, these are scrapped for unknown reason and cannot be found in the actual game.

Within the files, multiple graphics can be found for a VIP subscription service. From looking at the graphics, it's heavily implied that rewards would've been much greater, as they are filled to the brim with fazcoins, lures, remnant and devices. The feature, as of now, has yet to see the light of day, and it is unknown if it ever will.
There are multiple unused inbox banners within the files. Most of them were renders of an animatronic presenting their plushsuit package with a wall of colored balloons behind them. One of the unused banners however features a battery emitting large electric shocks, which most likely would've been used as a sale render for the battery.
From day 1, Plushtrap has had many assets within the files of the game. Upon release, Plushtrap showed that all the assets were scrapped in favor of newer versions. Along with this, Plushtrap also got brand new textures different from what the promotional material and trailer showed him with. These old textures were also found in the files, and can still be applied to his model through outside means.
During a mini event known as the Mashup Event, Shamrock Freddy along with many other skins and characters returned for two whole weeks. Shamrock Freddy in particular, obtained a few new graphics for some of his assets, being his plushsuit package, his shop render and his avatar icon. Interestingly, his avatar icon only changes on his plushsuit package and profile pack.
Unused CPU Descriptions
In AR's text files, there are descriptions for the different CPUS for the characters who released with the game. These descriptions each gave clues as to the unique mechanics that the different characters have in the game, some being more vague than others. Bonnie's specifically seems to suggest that he originally would've had his guitar in the game.
- Bare Endo - "Performs default automated functions."
- Freddy Fazbear - "Plays his patented jingle when in close proximity."
- Bonnie - "Plays his guitar and is more difficult to locate in static."
- Balloon Boy - "Continually sends greeting messages when in close proximity and walks silently."
- Chica - "Walks around erratically and can charge suddenly."
- Foxy - "Moves around quickly and goes Haywire more frequently than others."
- Circus Baby - "Highly dangerous automated functions. Can go haywire during charges."
- Springtrap - "Highly dangerous automated functions. Exhibits unique Haywire behavior."
AR's text files suggest that there used to be a PVP mode within the game; where animatronics sent out by players would fighter animatronics sent by that player's friends. Unused MODs made specifically for this system suggest that remnant would be lost if an animatronic is beaten.
An unused crafting system was found in the game suggesting that the player would be able to make plushsuits and MODs based off items they could gain via encounters. The items for plushsuits were separated in the categories of Left Leg, Right Leg, Left Arm, Right Arm, Torso and Head. The items for MODs were separated in the categories of Motherboard, Logic Circuit, Sound Card, Control Unit, Hard Disk and Heat Sink.It is unclear if this crafting system would grant the player with custom animatronics and MODs, or would've simply been used to craft ones already in the game. The system also suggests that an inventory system would've been in place for the various parts you would acquire.
Within the files of Freddy In Space 2, there are many unused sprites that never saw the light of day. Some of which are some unused enemies, one of which seems to be a simple boy who can turn into a tornado. The othe two seem to be men in some sort of armor with jet boosters on their feet.. As well as this, there's also an unused flower and two unused lego bricks. While the flower's coloration suggests it was supposed to appear in the Stellar Pit, the lego brick's original use is unknown.
POPGOES: Evergreen held various unused assets that were teased on Kane Carter's twitter account. The first four images are teasers for the kitchen cam, which held assets that were stolen off the internet. This lead Kane to taking down the original post, leaving this iteration of the kitchen unused. The other unused feature is an older version of a Popgoes trash bin that was inspired by a frog trash bin found in Britain playgrounds known as "Froggo".
