But imagine if there weren't. Imagine that underneath Mickey Mouse's exterior was nothing but a soulless, poorly programmed automaton, and that it might toss the first person it sees into an empty cartoon suit full of grinding metal and gears. Now imagine your job is to watch over those creepy mascots at night. Five nights, in fact. And instead of having all of Disney's power and money to shut down any attempted Electric Parade uprisings posthaste, you're working at a second-rate Chuck E.

Before anything out of the ordinary even happens, every synapse in your brain is sending the message that you do not want to be here. But for a few minutes, all is well, thanks to a recorded message left for you each night by your predecessor, a guy with a business-casual midwestern lilt who gives you a basic rundown on your duties and the morbid history of the place.
And even then, this man's reasonable tone when talking about people being stuffed into the metal suits, or when describing a disturbing incident called "The Bite of '87," puts you on edge. But then his message is over, and the real game begins. Your job is to flit back and forth between the security cameras, ensuring all the wacky animatronic characters are where they're supposed to be, which is in the back room.
When they're not--and the fear instinct that comes with realizing that will serve you well here--your job is simply self-preservation.
Close the doors, turn on the lights outside your office, and wait for Freddy or one of the others to wander away.

For example, turning the difficulty down to 1 in Custom Night mode makes them less aggressive, flashing Foxy resets him, and playing a sound-clip of Balloon Boy near Springtrap makes him walk towards it though it may help due to that particular soul being one of a child murderer's If the suggestions that they're possessed by the murdered children are indeed what the creator meant about them being "haunted".
And it is, with even the Puppet itself appearing to have been a suffering child. All this time, the children had been trying for decades to stop their murderer, only succeeding after the restaurant closed, and were unable to move on for a long time afterwards.

Through the Eyes of Madness: The guards have a tendency to have "hallucinations," which may actually be hallucinations possibly caused by the air in the workplace or lack of sleepbut are quite likely to be supernatural in origin.
If it's true that the night guards are all Michael Afton in disguise, maybe the hallucination comes from the fact he's technically dead and is struggling to stay sane in the living world.
Too Dumb to Live: Okay, the first night can be passed off due to ignorance of how dangerous the job really is Killer animatronics? However, coming back to Freddy Fazbear's after a first-hand experience lands most of them smack-dab into Darwin Award territory.
