Withered Foxy the Pirate Fox (also known as Withered Foxy) is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2. He is also a returning character in Five Nights at Freddy’s Virtual Reality: Help Wanted. He is Foxy’s original, damaged version.
The Withered Foxy looks very similar to his predecessor, but is quite different. His head is round with a triangular nose and small, black nostrils. A few stray hairs are visible on his top and an oval-shaped ear. His left ear is missing fabric. A chunk of fabric runs along his side, showing his endoskeleton. His right eye has a black patch covering it, and his eyes are yellow. A small, metallic stump remains on his right ear. His top and bottom jaws have sharp, thin teeth. His torso has a thin appearance with some tattering at the waist. His left hand is missing, as well as his knees. This exposes his endoskeleton. A sharp hook has been replaced his right hand. The remnants of brown pants/shorts are still on his hips, and the suit is torn just above the knees.
Fredbear’s Family Diner used to have Withered Foxy as a performer. Withered Foxy was replaced by Mangle after the diner closed.
The Freddy Fazbear Virtual Experience also featured Withered Foxy.

Withered Foxy is featured in the Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 gameplay area. With the other Toy and Withered Animatronics, he will be making his way to the office. The hallway will sometimes be visited by the Withered Foxy. To deter him, the player must flash their lights at him frequently. His jumpscare will be triggered if he does not flash his light regularly. Balloon Boy entering the office will disable the player’s lights, allowing Foxy easy access to the player.
Withered Foxy, along with other Withered Animatronics, also appears in “Trick-or-Treat”, a minigame found in the Spooky Mansion section. The player must ring the bell to activate the Foxy’s walking around the house. If the player sees him disappearing at the end the countdown ends, it means that he is standing at a doorway. The Foxy mask must be worn by the player before he can be revealed. Failure to do so, or wearing the wrong mask, will result in a jumpscare.

The files contained an incomplete model of the Withered Foxy before the Withered Update.
Withered Foxy is Fox’s withered form. He, along with four other animatronics, have fallen into serious disrepair. Freddy Fazbear has replaced him with his younger counterpart. This was due to an attempt at retrofitting the animatronics from before they were scrapped for newer models like Mangle.  Witheredfoxy’s suit is even more worn and the fur on his left side has fallen off completely. There is a noticeable change in the shape of his muzzle. As with all animatronics, the teeth of his endoskeleton can now be clearly seen. Comparing Foxy’s appearance to Withered Bonnie, Withered Chica or his new counterpart Mangle shows that he is actually in better condition than his old counterpart Mangle. He has just a few large rips on his body, which is just like Withered Freddy. Foxy, unlike the animatronics mentioned, isn’t completely stripped of his costume and doesn’t have any missing limbs or faces.
Although Withered Foxy is not known much about his personality. However, Withered Foxy appears to be more aggressive and violent than the original Foxy. This is evident by his actions in the hallway, where he holds his hook ready to dismember the guard.
