|“||What’s the matter, Foxy? I thought you wanted an audience!||„|
|~ William Afton's most famous quote.|
|“||The hidden room in the bathroom hallway. The boards. Break them. I'm in there. I'm in there. Michael. Your father. I'm your father. I want to talk to you. I only want to see my boy.||„|
|~ William Afton, trying to manipulate Michael into letting him out of the safe room.|
|“||I went up there about four times, picked the worst kids of the bunch, took 'em back, and I gave it to 'em. I couldn't do much, of course, they'd start squealing. So, I made it quick enough to be efficient, but long enough to make it last... It was Hell for them, but it was Heaven to me. And, then I leave, without the slightest bit of guilt! So, there you go.||„|
|~ William Afton talking about the murders.|
William Afton is the main antagonist of the FNaF VHS series by Squimpus McGrimpus.
He is a man who is a possibe animatronic technician. After the death of his son Joseph in The Bite of '83, went on to murder five children in the Missing Children Incident, which took place from 1984 to 1985. He is also the father of Michael Afton.
Following his death from being mutilated by the Spring Bonnie springlock suit, being revived, and being moved to Fazbear's Fright, he would become even more vengeful and crazy, seeking revenge on Michael.
William Afton was man who had two children - Michael, born in 1969, and Joseph, in 1974. He loved Joseph, but always hated and neglected Michael, viewing him as a failure, which ultimately made Michael torment Joseph. He is implied to be an employee at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza.
In 1983, his youngest son, Joseph, would have his birthday party at Fredbear's Family Diner. His older brother, Michael, who still Joseph, played a prank on him by picking him up and shoving him in the mouth of the Fredbear animatronic. However, the animatronic malfunctions and bites down on Joseph's skull, killing him and making his head lose parts, much to Michael's horror. While Fredbear's Family Diner would later shut down, Joseph's ghost would later go on to possess Fredbear and become Golden Freddy.
Following the closure of Fredbear's Family Diner, all information about the incident, now (most likely) dubbed The Bite of '83, and the now-abandoned animatronics would be covered up. Later, Fazbear Entertainment would be created, and the diner would reopened and rebranded as Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, introducing four new animatronics: Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Pirate. The new pizzeria would prove to be popular with children, even spawning a TV show produced by Wondermation Studios.
Mournful of Joseph, William grew to despise Michael even more, wanting to kill him. However, the problem was that he knew he would get caught because of it. Therefore, he managed to find another way to vent his vengeful anger: he would dress up as Spring Bonnie, go to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, lure some troublemaking children similar to Michael into the backrooms, and sadistically murder them, before hiding their corpses in the animatronics. He did this with five children: Lucas and Angie Collins, Nicole Morales, Benjamin Nelson, and Charlie Emily. Everyone except Charlie died in 1985, with Charlie being killed in 1984.
After the murders, Fazbear Entertainment would increase security at their pizzeria, introducing the Toy animatronics, which would identify criminals through their facial recognition features, as an effort to prevent the murders from happening again. Meanwhile, the ghosts of the children would go on to possess all four animatronics, with Lucas possessing Bonnie and his sister possessing Chica, while Charlie would possess the newly-introduced Puppet animatronic. Nicole would possess Freddy, while Benjamin would possess Foxy. Afton would also make a recording about why (and how) he committed the murders, before warning Michael at the end, telling him to simply run.
A few more years later, the pizzeria would shut down due to the animatronics starting to smell bad and secrete blood because of them. Not long afterwards, Afton would return to the pizzeria and destroy the four animatronics. However, this would release the ghosts, who would proceed to terrorize him. William dons the Spring Bonnie suit in an attempt to hide from the ghosts. However, a springlock malfunction occurs, causing William to be mutilated by the animatronic parts, killing him. The bathroom where William died would later be walled up.
However, William would be somehow revived, and once in a while made a tape. The first one was on March 24, 1993. William talks about how he's trapped and possessed the suit. Five days later, on March 29, he notices that the animatronics have been put back together, as they are walking. He notes that the animatronics probably still think he's dead, or they just hate him that much. William swears yet again that they deserved it.
Four months later, in July 20, 1993, William bets that the animatronics are wondering why are they still trapped. William explains that God doesn't care about right and wrong, and that He just wants to see interesting things happen. William hopes that God is treating Joseph better than him.
Four months later, on November 12th, 1993, William goes insane and screams at Michael to let him out. A day later, he hypocritically asks Michael how could he do that to his own father. William swears he's gonna get out and find and kill Michael.
Nine years later, on June 5th, 2002, William laments that he was left rotting in one room for a long time. He realises he lost track of time, wondering if it was a month or a year. After saying he's alone, he curses out everyone.
In 2008, 15 years after the closure of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and 6 years after Afton's last tape, Fazbear's Fright, a horror attraction based on the murders at the pizzeria, would be built. On October 6th, Afton would be moved there, activating and lurking its hallways, wanting revenge on Michael. He makes a tape in which he screams that he got out, and reveals that he knows the Puppet will make Michael come here. A few days later, on October 14th, he makes one last tape in which he simply says "I see you", while the face of the destroyed suit, now Springtrap (although it was never called that in the episodes), appears.
The same year, under the Puppet's order's, Michael entered Fazbear's Fright and set it on fire, burning William to death as he screamed in agony. Michael also died in the blaze himself, freeing all the trapped spirits, sending William to Hell, and making Joseph forgive Michael.
William is abusive, psychopathic, egotistical, sadistic, and utterly ruthless. He outright states that he has no remorse for his victims, pointing out that he made their deaths "quick enough to be efficient, but long enough to make it last." He is also extremely petty, only killing the children so as to relieve his enmity towards Michael. He genuinely believes he has done no wrong, and that the children he killed deserved to die.
Despite hating Michael, he loved Joseph dearly. His accidental death at the hands of Michael drove him into grief, and would be the very cause of his infamous bloodlust. Even when being trapped in a room inside Spring Bonnie for at least four months, William hopes God is treating Joseph better than himself, showing he's still human. However, even before the death of Joseph, William thought of Michael as someone not worth his time due to being a troublesome kid, viewing him as a failure.
After his "death" in Spring Bonnie, he is shown to be more savage and wrathful, almost animalistic. His violence is far less hidden, and he now wants to flat-out kill Michael. Despite this, he knows Charlie's plan and that she'll make Michael come to Fazbear's Fright.

- Due to the non-canonical nature of the .mp4 videos, and not being mentioned in Memories, it is unknown if William's only daughter Elizabeth exists in the series. She most likely doesn't.
- When he murdered his victims, William killed three children at first, before later killing two more. It's likely that the two later victims were Lucas and his sister.
- As revealed in Facial Recognition Testing, if William is sighted by the Toy Animatronics, instead of making a beep, they will outright attack Afton.
