Who is FNAF’s Monty?

Montgomery Gator, otherwise known as Monty, is one of the animatronic antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. He is an anthropomorphic green aligator who plays bass in Glamrock Freddy’s band.

He has a green body with a yellow-green chest plate and scale-patterned legs. He wears a studded black belt around his waist and yellow star sunglasses with purple lenses. He also wears studded black bracelets on each arm, purple shoulderpads, and his hands have purple sections that mimic fingerless gloves. Monty also has a red mohawk hairstyle and a long green and yellow tail.

Is there a spirit possessing FNAF’s Monty?

As far as we know, Monty and other animatronics introduced in FNAF Security Breach like FNAF’s Roxy are not possessed by any spirits. The Freddy Fazbear’s Mega Pizzaplex location that we see in the game was built over the site of the burnt down Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Place seemingly by a third party who was not associated with FNAF’s William Afton or Henry Emily.

The animatronics in the Pizzaplex were most likely built at some point in the 2010s or later, meaning robotic technology had advanced significantly since Afton and Emily built the first animatronic mascots. This is what gives characters like Roxy and Monty a personality, not a lost spirit trapped in their endoskeletons.

What is FNAF Monty’s personality?

Monty’s main personality trait is that he is aggressive. At first it seems like typical ‘rockstar’ aggression as we see him smashing up his dressing room and acting generally rowdy on stage. But we quickly find out that he received a new claw upgrade that allows him to tear through metal gates and doors, showing off his strength and anger.

We know from a voiceline that he is quite egotistical and some fans have speculated that he might be jealous of FNAF’s Freddy, wanting to take on the role as lead of the band. There is a stereotype of jealous, brooding bassists after all.
