Following its initial release in 2014, the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise has become one of the most popular horror games. So as you can imagine, the franchise has released a lot of merchandise to maintain FNaF fans’ love for the game.
I am among the many who love to collect merch. Any sort of plushie or figure has a place in my collection, so these mystery mini figurines from Funko are a perfect addition. Even though I don’t tend to have much luck with mystery toys, I can’t help but buy them. There’s something so exciting about them. Not knowing what’s in store feeds into the thrill of opening a mystery box.
It also helps that Funko makes these figures, so they are guaranteed to be incredibly high quality and robust. With a lot of mystery figures, the quality is dropped since you can’t see the product before buying. But Funko is different, and they never stray from creating an incredibly high-quality and detailed product.
What Is a Funko Mystery Mini?
Standing 3 inches tall, these figures adopt a more cartoon-like appearance than your standard run-of-the-mill figurine. Instead, Funko Mystery Minis are small, blind box figures that come in various characters and styles. Rather than seeing which toy you’re getting, the main appeal of these mystery toys is the thrill of not knowing.
Although this might not appeal to many collectors, since there is a high chance of getting the exact figure twice, they’re a cheap way to bulk out a collection while having some pretty niche figures.
The first Five Nights at Freddy’s mystery mini set was released in 2016, two years after the first game was released. Since then, seven further collections have been released, including the glow-in-the-dark and blacklight series’ which have accompanying Funko Pop Vinyl figures.
One thing I love about Mystery Minis is how many characters they accommodate in each series. While you still have the chance of getting a figure of your favorite animatronic, like Freddy or Foxy, they also have a special place for more overlooked characters, like Ennard, or background animatronics like El Chip.
Mystery Minis are one of the only chances players will have at getting merchandise of these underrated characters, which is one of the reasons they are so popular.
Funko Mystery Minis are a relatively cheap alternative to getting some high-quality Five Nights at Freddy’s merchandise, with a single box costing around $6.99. But one of the reasons these figures are so cheap is because you don’t know what’s in store, so it’s common for collectors to buy an entire case to receive every figure.
Where Can I Buy Funko Pop Mystery Minis?
Like Five Nights at Freddy’s Funko Pops or Funko branded plushies, these Mystery Minis can be found in many retailers. Game shops tend to supply a lot of FNaF merchandise because of how popular the game is among players, so they are a great place to start. However, online marketplaces like Amazon or eBay are always helpful.
Here’s a list of my favorite stores that stock Mystery Minis:
- Hot Topic
- Box Lunch
Buying products in-store will avoid potential price increases and keep the ‘mystery’ element to the product. One thing I don’t enjoy about online shopping is that you never really know what will arrive. With places like eBay, you can never guarantee the authenticity of a product, and you never know if you will receive an unopened box.
So if you want to start your Funko Mystery Mini collection, I recommend visiting your local game store or grocery store to see if they have any in stock. But, of course, you can always buy the products online from the above stores too!
Series One: Five Nights at Freddy’s & Five Nights at Freddy’s 2
The first series of Five Nights at Freddy’s Mystery Minis contains fourteen figures. However, several exclusive potential pulls depend on where you buy your boxes. This collection includes a lot of characters from the first and second Five Nights at Freddy’s and also features a few characters from the minigames – such as the Happiest Day.
My favorite figure from this series is the crying child because it’s not a character we have ever seen outside the games. It’s great to have a such niche, specific merch which you can display without someone immediately recognizing it.
Here’s a complete list of every figure within Series One:
- Freddy Fazbear
- Golden Freddy
- Freddy Endoskeleton
- Toy Freddy
- Toy Bonnie
- Beakless Toy Chica
- Balloon Boy
- The Puppet
- Toy Cupcake
- Crying Child
However, because this was the first series of Five Nights at Freddy’s Funko mystery minis, it’s a little harder to find in-store than the latest series, but boxes are still available online. Because the first FNaF game is still so popular, the company hasn’t discontinued this series yet.
It’s the only Mystery Mini series that hosts the main animatronics in their original form and colors, so it’s a set people want to collect.
Series Two: Sister Location & Five Nights at Freddy’s 4
Series Two of Funko Mystery Minis was released in 2017, only a year after the first collection. This set focuses on characters from Sister Location and FNaF 4 and has a more threatening design than the first collection. In addition, the animatronics and characters within this set take on their nightmare and Funtime appearances, and the set is even home to characters like Balloon Boy.
From this set, I particularly love the Jack-O-Chica figure since it’s my favorite animatronic design Chica has ever adopted. Although I wish more Jack-O figures were included in the base set, a few can be found within location-exclusive boxes – which I’ll discuss later.
I also love the Nightmare Balloon Boy figure since it sends a shiver down my spine if I look at it too long. Knowing my luck with blind boxes, if I bought a case of this series, I would probably have an army of these fang-filled humanoid animatronics.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in Series Two:
- Nightmare Freddy
- Nightmare Bonnie
- Nightmare Chica
- Nightmare Foxy
- Nightmare Fredbear
- Nightmare Cupcake
- Nightmare Mangle
- Nightmare Balloon Boy
- Circus Baby
- Funtime Freddy
- Funtime Foxy
Series Two was nowhere near as popular as Series One, so it’s tough to find unopened boxes from this set. Sites like eBay may have a few listings, but I’d expect the prices to be almost double what you’d find in-store. It’s a shame that this series didn’t make the cut for continuous production, but I can see why.
As famous as Five Nights at Freddy’s is, with nine series’ of these figures being produced, at least one was bound to be discontinued.
Series Three: The Twisted Ones & Sister Location
However, because Sister Location didn’t get the attention it deserved in series two doesn’t mean it won’t get a new lease of life in series three.
At first, I thought Funko was planning to re-release a few characters from the previous set, such as Circus Baby and Ballora, so I was surprised when I saw the Sister Location branding for this collection and didn’t see a single repeat figure.
I’d say that Series Three and Series Four are the collections home to the most unusual characters. Of course, there are still characters you’d expect to see, but I appreciate the attention shown toward background animatronics in both these sets.
Once again, the animatronics in Series Three focus on their scarier variations rather than their cuddly ones, like in series one. I adore the look of the Twisted Animatronics, and it’s even better that a lot of those figures come in a Funko Pop style too.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in Series Three:
- Bon Bon
- Jumpscare Ennard
- Little Joe
- Dark Springtrap
- William Afton
- Twisted Freddy
- Twisted Bonnie
- Twisted Foxy
- Twisted Wolf
- Twisted Chica
My favorite figure from this set has to be William Afton. It’s the only time we see him in the Mystery Mini collection, despite his importance to Five Nights at Freddy’s. Plus, seeing him covered in blood from the depths of the Springtrap suit is genuinely cool.
I’d love to see an entirely Afton-themed Mystery Mini collection in the future, especially since he has so many forms, like Purple Guy.
Series Four: Pizzeria Simulator
As I mentioned already, Series Four is also home to many characters you wouldn’t expect to find merchandise for. However, this Pizzeria Simulator-themed set was released in 2019 and is still available for sale, unlike the fate of series two.
I think many players were excited to see such underrated characters, which is supported by Funko’s release of Pop figures for characters like Helpy and Mr. Hippo. Usually, I wouldn’t care much for these characters, but the Mystery Mini style suits their appearances.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in Series Four:
- Rockstar Freddy
- Rockstar Bonnie
- Rockstar Chica
- Rockstar Foxy
- Mr. Hippo
- Happy Frog
- Orville Elephant
- Funtime Chica
- El Chip
This series is also available in a Translucent Glow Variation, all of which glow in the dark. Although this collection contains the same characters listed above, the translucent appearance gives them a unique identity.
Series Five: Security Breach
After the release of Security Breach, the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise released a lot of merchandise. So it’s expected that a collection of Mystery Minis was thrown into the mix.
Security Breach reignited a lot of previous Five Nights at Freddy’s fanatics’ love for the franchise, so this series was top-rated upon release – as you can imagine. Because Security Breach is still very popular and relevant, this set, alongside series six, are the two most common to find in store.
Additionally, because of its popularity, many of the figures within this collection are frequently sold via auction websites. Since there’s no guarantee on which figure you’ll get if you buy figures individually, a lot of collectors will receive doubles.
Which seems to be my luck when it comes to things like this. So if there’s a figure you’re on the hunt for and haven’t found yet, it might be worth looking online rather than risking another box.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in Series Five:
- Glamrock Freddy
- Blacklight Glamrock Freddy
- Metallic Glamrock Freddy
- Glitter & Glow Glamrock Freddy
- Glamrock Chica
- Blacklight Glamrock Chica
- Montgomery Gator
- Glowing Montgomery Gator
- Roxanne Wolf
- Blacklight Roxanne Wolf
- Flocked Vanny
Surprisingly, this is the only series that doesn’t have any location-exclusive figures. Nor does it have any different variations to the base set, unlike the blacklight or glow-in-the-dark set. So instead of keeping these figures in a separate collection, they’re all included in this one.
I think it’s really disappointing that the daycare attendant wasn’t included in this set, especially since he is such a significant character in Security Breach. If the collection eventually gets some exclusive figures, or even a re-run in the future, like Sister Location, that’s one character I would love to see.
Series Six: Special Delivery
Considering Special Delivery was released in 2019, I’m surprised the most recent Funko Mystery Mini collection is based on that game rather than Security Breach. However, I am really pleased Special Delivery received a collection as I think the figures it contains are the coolest of the lot.
My favorite figure from this set has to be the 8-bit baby. I think it’s a unique figure and among one of the most detailed figures in FNaF Mystery Mini history. However, I also love the Frostbite Balloon Boy figure since it’s, again, a subtle nod to Five Nights at Freddy’s.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in Series Six:
- Livewire Toy Freddy
- Arctic Ballora
- Heartstick Baby
- Black Heart Bonnie
- Frostbite Balloon Boy
- 8-Bit Baby
- Toxic Springtrap
- VR Toy Freddy
- Highscore Toy Chica
- Radioactive Foxy
- System Error Toy Bonnie
Because this set was the most recent release, it’s the easiest to come by in-store for anyone looking to avoid internet shopping. As a result, there’s a higher chance of walking into somewhere like Walmart and finding a box or two from this set than any previous, which also helps avoid scalper prices.
Blacklight & Glow In the Dark Sets
Outside of the series mentioned above, two extra series of Funko Mystery Minis have been released. Although both the blacklight & the Glow-in-the-dark sets may include the same characters we have seen in the previous series, they adopt a different appearance.
The glow-in-the-dark series is essentially what it says on the tin. Similar to the translucent glow set released alongside Series Four, each figure included in this collection has a glow-in-the-dark body and features and takes on a green base color instead of their traditional color palette. This series was released after the first, so includes every character you can find in the first mystery mini series.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in the glow-in-the-dark series:
- Freddy Fazbear
- Golden Freddy
- Toy Freddy
- Toy Bonnie
- Balloon Boy
- Toy Cupcake
Much like the glow-in-the-dark series, the blacklight mystery minis series changes the traditional color palette of series one figures and gives them a much more neon look. If you’re familiar with the Security Breach Mystery Mini set, then a few figures adopt this blacklight look. But unusually, they didn’t decide to release a Security Breach exclusive blacklight series.
Although the blacklight series has the exact figures as the first and glow-in-the-dark series, this set didn’t release until after series three. However, it also contains a few different colors for certain characters, rather than just having one of each.
Here’s a complete list of the figures available in the Blacklight Series:
- Foxy (Green)
- Foxy (Purple)
- Golden Freddy
- Freddy Endoskeleton
- Toy Freddy
- Toy Bonnie
- Toy Chica
- Cupcake (Green)
- Cupcake (Purple)
- Balloon Boy
Although these are ‘exclusive’ sets, they aren’t location-exclusive and, similar to the blacklight, and glow-in-the-dark Funko Pop figures can be found anywhere. Their different appearance compared to the standard set is the only thing that offers a slight difference in rarity.
Location Exclusive Figures
Even though I’ve mentioned it a few times throughout this guide, I wanted to cover location-exclusive figures in a little more detail. There are several exclusive figures within almost every set of Five Nights at Freddy’s Funko Mystery Minis. But instead of being chaser figures available in every case, no matter where you buy them from, these Five Nights at Freddy’s Mystery Minis do things differently.
Several locations that stock the figures have ‘location-exclusive’ additions to the series. This essentially means certain characters or variations are only available at these places. Because of how limited getting these figures is, they tend to be the most popular and sought after in a set.
The best way to locate a location-exclusive case of FNaF mystery minis is by looking at the box. Somewhere on the container will state the location and have a little logo. Usually, these logos are found on the box’s lid or around the sides, but it’s hard to miss. Additionally, if you’re still unsure, look at the characters available. You might recognize something you haven’t seen before.
Five places have these location-exclusive figures rather than just stocking the base set; Hot Topic, Walmart, Target, Toys-R-Us, and GameStop. Of course, boxes can also be purchased online – which is the easiest way to get them in bulk if you are after an entire case. Even though having so many guaranteed retailers is excellent, you can never ensure what will be available for purchase when you visit a store. Sometimes online shopping is the best bet.
I love these exclusive figures. Anything vaguely rare or with low odds of finding is essential to a collector, and these figures are so cool to have on display. Rather than just being Glow-in-the-dark or Shadow variations of the animatronics, even the exclusive figures give underrated characters a new lease of life.
Here are the location exclusive figures from Series One:
- Toy Chica – Walmart
- Mangle – Walmart
- Glow In The Dark Toy Freddy – Walmart
- Shadow Freddy – Hot Topic
- RWQFSFASXC – Hot Topic
- Glow In The Dark Toy Chica – Hot Topic
- Withered Bonnie – GameStop
- Plushtrap – GameStop
- Fredbear – GameStop
- Jumpscare Circus Baby – Walmart
- Jumpscare Ballora – Walmart
- Jumpscare Funtime Freddy – Walmart
- Jumpscare Funtime Foxy – Toys-R-Us
- Jumpscare Bidybab – Toys-R-Us
- Stacked Minirinas – Toys-R-Us
- RWQFSFASXC – GameStop
- PaperPals -GameStop
- Theodore – Gamestop
- Nightmare – Hot Topic
- Bonnet – Hot Topic
- Stanley – Hot Topic
- Jack-O-Bonnie – Walmart Exclusive
- Lolbit – Walmart
- Ella – Walmart
- Nedbear – Target
- Molten Freddy – GameStop
- Scrap Baby – GameStop
- Candy Cadet – GameStop
- Egg Baby – Target
- Fruit Punch Clown – Target
There are so many exclusive figures you could probably make a collection out of solely rare ones. I love that characters such as the Fruit Punch Clown and Lolbit had their time to shine as a mystery mini. I would love to eventually add them to my collection – however, buying figures this rare secondhand can be pretty expensive.
Surprisingly, the Security Breach collection doesn’t host any location-exclusive figures. Although there’s no information as to why I’d love to see some limited edition figures for that set in the future. Characters like Map Bot and DJ Music Man, or even the blob, would work well in the Mystery Mini style – and are still recognizable as characters from the game.
Question: How big are Funko Mystery Mini figures?
Answer: Funko Mystery Mini figures stand at around three inches, but it depends on which character you get. While some figures will meet the three-inch size, quite a few will be smaller and squatter. The same can be said for the weight of the figure. A taller figure may be lighter, such as the puppet or even Freddy, but characters like the Candy Cadet or Lolbit are typically shorter but heavier.
Question: Are these figures appropriate for children?
Answer: Yes, these figures are suitable for any young Five Nights at Freddy’s fan. They’re large enough not to be a choking hazard and can still be played with rather than just sitting on display. Plus, they’re an affordable merchandise option over something like a Funko Pop which can occasionally be quite expensive. For $6.99 a piece, I’d say that these items are an excellent gift for any Five Nights at Freddy’s lover! Also, even though they are remarkably detailed, they aren’t as horrifying as witnessing the animatronics in the game, which is great for anyone as easily scared as me.
Question: Will there be more Five Nights at Freddy’s Mystery Mini sets in the future?
Answer: Although nothing has been said, I can imagine that Funko will continue to release Five Nights at Freddy’s Mystery Mini figures to coincide with the next FNaF game. Since they released the Special Delivery set after Security Breach, there’s also a potential that the company will release more figures from previous games before the next title even comes out.
Mystery Minis FNAF: Summary
Now you know the ins and outs of Five Nights at Freddy’s Mystery Minis, which characters are you hoping to add to your collection? Or are there any you’d love to see included in the future?
I think Mystery Mini figures are such a fun approach to merch, and the thrill of getting a box always makes me smile. Even though the characters within this game are terrifying, these figures still have a cuteness to them, so it’s really hard not to love and want to find each and every one.
I can’t wait to see which characters receive a Mystery Mini equivalent in the future because these figures are seriously addictive. Of course, it helps that Funko is such a reliable, high-quality brand, but once you buy one, you’ll want to find the entire collection!
