|“||Father, it's me, Michael.||”|
— Golden Freddy Preset
Michael Afton (also known as Purple Guy, Mike, Eggs Benedict in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location) is the son of William Afton and the brother of The Daughter. He is the technician of Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental and the Nightguard of Freddy's Fazbear Pizza.
For more info on his family, go to The Afton Family. If not, read on.
Michael Afton is only ever seen in various minigames throughout the FNAF series he is also the. He is represented as a purple-colored guy with bright white eyes.
In Five Nights at Freddy's 3, he isn't seen, but is the security guard working there.
In the four secret Custom Night minigames, Michael Afton's pre-purple appearance is shown and reveals that his purple skin color is only there as a result of decaying from the robotic parts inside of him.
His background is mostly told via silent actions within retro-graphics, or by reading between the lines throughout the games. Between his minigame presence and piecing together information gleaned from the phone calls as well as the posters in Five Nights at Freddy's, the community has been able to piece together some information about Michael. He seems to have good intentions, but has ended up on the dark side of the story due to his father's actions.
Michael Afton's motives for his actions after Sister Location is to fix his father's actions and set the children's spirit free. He is seen dismantling the animatronics at Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria twice, which appears to be linked to the spirits within the animatronics being released.
Role in Sister Location
He is the technician of Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental and by extension, Circus Baby's Pizza World. He has been revealed to be the player in the final cutscene of Custom Night, where he seems to have a British accent.
In Sister Location, Michael is instructed by his father to go to the underground facilities and find his sister. This implies that William Afton is aware of the souls of the children staying behind, and knows his daughter's soul is within Circus Baby. After Ennard uses Michael's body as a vessel to escape the distribution center, Michael is, for reasons unknown, revived and becomes a Purple Guy.

After beating a Custom Night preset on Very Hard mode, you will be greeted to a secret minigame, which shows the events after Ennard had been stuffed inside of Michael.
In the first minigame, Michael looks like a normal man, wearing a purple shirt and blue pants. The people around him wave cheerfully.
In the second minigame, Everything is the same just with him having a minor skin color change from tan-pink to tan. The people around him continue to wave cheerfully.
In the third minigame, Michael's skin seems to be more of a green color. The first person he walks past has a bewildered expression on his face. The rest are normal, just waving cheerfully.
In the fourth minigame, Michael's skin becomes a darker greenish-brown; his eyes are also now completely black. The last three people he walks by look in confusion.
In the fifth minigame, he looks much more decrepit than he did in the past minigames, with a strange glowing in one eye. Everyone around him appear very concerned.
In the sixth minigame, his skin has turned a dull purple, now having a white glow in both of his eyes. He also acts to be more senile and less cheerful than he was before. There are much less people around him and one of them is hiding behind their house in fear.
In the last minigame, he is hunched over and his skin is a dark purple colour. His appearance is now very reminiscent of purple guy. Everyone around him have hid behind their houses in dread.
Eventually, his body has a spasm, and he regurgitates the robotic parts belonging to Ennard into the sewer. He lies on the ground, presumably dead. The player then hears Circus Baby's voice repeating "you won't die", and then Michael gets revived while all of the animatronics' eyes show up in the sewer.
After beating V. Hard Golden Freddy mode, Michael Afton, speaks to his father William Afton.
- "Father. It's me, Michael. I did it. I found it. It was right where you said it would be. They were all there. They didn't recognize at first but then they thought I was you. And I found her. I put her back together, just like you asked me to. She's free now. But something is wrong with me. I should be dead. But I'm not. I've been living in shadows. There is only one thing left for me to do now. I'm going to come find you. I'm going to come find you."
After this, Springtrap walks in for a second before the screen goes black. Looking in the background, you see the words "Fazbear's Fright."
The music that plays during the V. Hard Golden Freddy cutscene:
- When you finish the Custom Night challenges on the hardest difficulty, you will be rewarded with a cutscene that shows what happened to Eggs Benedict after the Real Ending.
- For the longest time Michael Afton was thought to be the same entity as William Afton, but it was figured out in the V. Hard Golden Freddy cutscene that he was not.
- Michael Afton seems to be fixing his father, William Afton mistakes.
- The things Michael does to fix his father's mistakes makes him not 100% innocent as some think, as he dissembles the animatronics.
- People commonly misspell Michael's name to be Micheal(a and e switched).
- When Michael said that the spirits mistaken him for his father, that would explain why the Animatronics come after you in the first and second game.
- Sister Location is the first game to have more than 2 frames for Michael's sprite.
- Michael Is the second protagonist to die in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, the first being his brother from Five Nights at Freddy's 4.
