The Withereds Manifest
Nightmare Ennard is the only animatronic active during night Ennight and will manifest in any of the four tents. It will give a sound or visual cue to indicate the tent that it is currently hiding in. The player then has a short window of time to run to that tent and repeatedly flash Ennard with the flashlight until he disappears. This must be repeated until 6AM to complete the night. The cues are as follows:
The Withereds Manifest
Their appearances are mainly like the withereds but very burnt and their suits are decaying, them too, and some of their rusted endoskeletons can be seen. The Ignited are based off the four mascots of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, including Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken and Foxy the Pirate Fox.
Also, as more secretly demonstrated by the fact that The Joy of Creation: Story Mode is set on the same night, as well as the more obvious demonstrations that the player is obligated to take notice of such as post-3 AM Ignited Foxy in the Office memory and Endo B "Angel" and Endo C "Mouth" in Phase 5 of the Basement memory, the spirits manifesting from the forest as Five Nights at Freddy's characters can also duplicate themselves at their will as well as place those duplicates into the transported locations.
They first originate as spirits lacking form from a nearby forest in Texas, Houston, United States and manifest themselves with the concepts made using other people's visions. In the case of infiltrating the Cawthon residence conveniently placed by their home forest in The Joy of Creation: Story Mode, they attached themselves to the concepts of Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Pirate Fox.
Though they are powerful and capable of a plethora of supernatural actions, the spirits still have their limits. For example, they're weakened by bright lights outside of their realm, meaning they traditionally can only manifest at nighttime. Additionally, they also bring the functions of the target of their manifestations with them, meaning that if they play as someone traditionally known to be watched through an external source like a camera, they will end up being seen. Finally, they are only able to live eternally once the creator of their character is killed. Otherwise, their leader getting flashed twelve times total causes every spirit's presence to be erased as their form is completely lost.
The Ignited and The Fallen may be the same species of spirit and may use the same manifestation method, but they are different groups entirely. In truth, The Ignited are the ones to guide Michael through The Fallen in the Basement memory as they're spirits who failed to manifest and attack anyone in their way, regardless of if they're of the same spirit type.
It is unknown what happens to their victim and themselves if they succeed in capturing and killing the victim in question, but they likely return to the forest of which they originated from while casually leaving the remains, of which those remains are out of their spiritual realm, out in the open for other humans to eyewitness, as their state of being a spirit and what causes them to manifest physically is enough to obscure their case and hide themselves as the cause if people were to find the body in question.
Stamper was the leader and founder of a cult known as the "Ottomarians", which lived in the Garden of Joy on the Withered Isle and feared a malevolent entity that could manifest itself through impure thoughts of malthi
