— Lefty after killing the player in Ultimate Custom Night
L. ure E. ncapsulate F. use T. ransport E. xtract (also known as Lefty, with The Marionette trapped inside it) is a salvageable, and buyable animatronic in the game. He causes the most damage, and the player cannot get rid of him. It has also been confirmed this is now the body that The Marionette possesses.
His upper head looks similar to Toy Freddy's, but his lower jaw is separated and connected with metal rods to the upper part. He has the rosy-red cheeks like the Toys from FNaF 2, and his top hat and bow tie are red. Like the other Rockstar animatronics, he has a star on his grayish chest. He holds his gold microphone in his left hand, fitting the name "Lefty". His left eye is small and black, while his right eye is normal with yellow pupils. His knee pads are also rosy-red. If one looks closely, they can see the Puppet inside of Lefty, which features on a secret death screen.
Overall, it is a black and red version of Rockstar Freddy without his left eye and holds his mic in his left hand as well. He is also a member of the Rockstar Assemble, a band including 'Rockstar' versions of Bonnie, Chica, Foxy, and Freddy.
Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator
Sometime between the events of Five Nights at Freddy's 3 and Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator, The Marionette was captured by Lefty as a part of Cassette Man's plan to get rid of the remaining possessed animatronics and eventually wound up in the alley behind The Pizzeria trying to get inside.
It is also confirmed in the Completion ending that the Puppet, now possessed by Henry's daughter, was giving life to the other murdered children from The Missing Children Incident and restoring their lives by making them animatronics as well.
In the Insanity ending, blueprints for Lefty which revealed that it was made to trap the Puppet. This is evidenced by the acronym of its name (Lure, Encapsulate, Fuse, Transport, and Extract) and certain specs, particularly the False Sensory Output for a security bracelet and the Dream Wand to play the lullaby. The blueprints are credited to Fazbear Entertainment, Inc. Along with Scrap Baby, Molten Freddy, and Michael Afton were all burned in the fire and set free.
Ultimate Custom Night
He sits in the closet off of the left hallway. He becomes more and more agitated if the office becomes too noisy or too hot. This state of agitation increases slowly, and will eventually end with Lefty jumpscaring you. Lowering the noise won't reverse the effects, nor will reducing the temperature, and doors won't prevent Lefty from getting to you. The only way to ease his temperament is to switch on the Global Music Box (which soothes all music box animatronics at the expense of extra power being drained)."
Lefty will hide in the left hall closet deactivated. If there is too much noise and heat, Lefty will become more agitated and active until eventually leaving the closet to hunt the player down. He can't be stopped by the door and lowering the heat and noise can't stop him, but he can be soothed by the Global Music Box (at the cost of a little chunk of power being drained). If the player fails to soothe him in time, Lefty will jumpscare the player.

Lefty's jumpscare sound, this is shared with the rest of the animatronics who attack you.
If the player purchases Lefty before his salvage on the fourth day, there will be a sign (similar to a wooded paperpal) that reads “No one is here. (I'm already inside)” with a winking smiley face.
Out of all of the items in the game, Lefty has the highest liability risk, at 9.
There is a rare screen with Lefty sitting in the alley. Looking at his arm, one can see what looks like the Puppet's arm.
He is the only animatronic who is both salvageable and buyable.
In the Insanity ending, blueprints are shown for the L.ure E.capsulate F.use T.ransport E.xtract (LEFTE) The resulting acronym is one letter off of Lefty, plus the picture given with that text looks just like Lefty.
Lefty holds his microphone on his left hand which suggests he's left-handed which makes him a "lefty".
His eye also makes him a "lefty" since his left eye is just plain black.
Lefty has a nearly identical color scheme to Nightmare from Five Nights at Freddy's 4, except the red and yellow colors are swapped in placement (Nightmare has red eyes with yellow accessories, Lefty has a yellow eye with red accessories).
Lefty is the only antagonist in the game that doesn't have a macabre character design.
Lefty is one of the cheapest animatronics in the game, costing only $5.
In the rare screen, there is a poster on the left that shows The Marionette's face.
Lefty has a weirder on-stage animation than any other, as it’s him chomping his mouth and nodding his head simultaneously.
Lefty has the ability to hide in different items you can buy. This is why seemingly harmless items (like the Gumball Machine) sometimes have a Liability Risk.
In the Insanity Ending, the Cassette Man reveals that he created Lefty to capture the Puppet, whom is his daughter. In the rare boot screen of Lefty, the Puppet can be seen inside the suit, which means Lefty's task was accomplished.
Though, if looked at, the Puppet's shoulders do not have any stripes while the one in Lefty has stripes on his shoulders. It is unknown if this is an error or not.
In The Completion Ending, Lefty is the only animatronic who isn't seen burning from the Salvageable Animatronics.
Lefty is the only antagonist to not be featured in any anniversary images
Lefty, along with Rockstar Freddy and Rockstar Foxy, is the only Rockstars to receive merchandise from the company Funko.
In addition, Lefty's character on his page is described as "a possessed sentient bear who likes to whisper a taunt after killing the player. The voice should be soft, yet chilling and a little menacing as well."
In the Ultimate Custom Night, it is possible to cam-stal Lefty by leaving the camera on him. Even if the monitor is set down, he will never attack, regardless of heat/noise.
Lefty’s slumping pose in his boot screen and in his first and second phases in Ultimate Custom Night is a similar slumping pose to Golden Freddy and Plushtrap in FNaF4’s “Fun With Plushtrap” minigame.
