Featured: Moving Forward and Looking Back
Springtrap is most likely an early model of a Bonnie suit (as he is referred to as Spring Bonnie by the Phone Guy). He is a heavily damaged rabbit animatronic of a dirty yellow color. A great portion of his right ear is missing with wires sticking out of the stump left behind.
Springtrap's entire body is torn and tattered with gaping holes exposing caging and wires throughout, thus making Springtrap appear much more macabre-looking than any of the other animatronics from previous installments. While both hands and feet are attached and generally intact, his legs are entirely stripped from the mid-shin down, fully exposing endoskeleton metal and wiring.
Both of Springtrap's eyes are properly set inside his head and he does not typically open his mouth - instead, Springtrap wears a permanent wide grin as the material surrounding his teeth has deteriorated. The exception to this is during his second jumpscare, the main menu, on CAM 15 and in his rare boot images.
Close examination of Springtrap and the rare boot images depicting him show that there appears to be human remains within the suit. When viewing the torso and other exposed sections of the endoskeleton, there are chunks of dark pink material that resemble human innards. In the boot images, Springtrap has his jaw open and is pulling the suit's head up, revealing a mummified-looking human head. The jaw and teeth of the head can be briefly seen during his second jumpscare and when he's on CAM 15.
Unlike the robotic movements of all of the previous animatronics, Springtrap moves in a fluid manner, slinking intoThe Office in a human-like fashion.
Most other animatronics have endoskeletons and support structures that make it nearly impossible for them to be worn like a suit (without causing serious injury or death). Springtrap, on the other hand, was created to be a hybrid between an animatronic and a wearable mascot costume.
According to Phone Guy's various calls throughout the week, the mechanical parts inside of Springtrap were designed to be tightly compressed against the outside of the suit, using spring locks to hold them in place, allowing someone to enter and wear the suit. However, anyone in the suit would need to be very cautious, because, in the event that the spring locks malfunctioned, all the compressed animatronic parts would quickly shift back into place, severely injuring (and likely killing) whoever was inside the suit.
Springtrap's spring mechanisms were faulty to the point that breathing on them lubricated them and made them malfunction, thus making it extremely dangerous to wear and leading to Springtrap being put away in an emergency/storage room in which all customers and most employees were not allowed to enter. This is most likely how Springtrap earned his name, trapping the user inside of itself because of faulty springs. The entrances to the rooms mentioned above were later covered up with pseudo walls and hidden from all camera views and maps, thus making these rooms nonexistent to unsuspecting customers and employees.

When the Purple Guy returned to the restaurant to dismantle the animatronics, he awoke the ghosts of the five children he murdered. Terrified by the spirits, Purple Guy ran into the safe room where Springtrap was placed for storage. He wore the suit to hide from the ghosts, and the trick appeared to have worked at first, causing him to stand up suddenly and laugh at the ghosts while inside Springtrap.
However, the mechanisms within Springtrap malfunctioned, causing Purple Guy to be crushed and sliced by the internal springs and gears, thus killing him. Phone Guy's tapes also foreshadow this, as he explains that the person wearing the costumes must not breathe on the spring locks or make sudden movements, and Purple Guy broke these rules; he made a sudden movement by jumping into the suit, and possibly breathed on the spring locks when he laughed, resulting in both the locks becoming loosened and his brutal death.
30 years later, Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction was opened as a homage to The Missing Children Incident and other incidents that made Freddy Fazbear's Pizza infamous for being haunted. Employees found Springtrap and reused him for the attraction. However, at night, he roams the halls, presumably possessed by the body and spirit of the Purple Guy.
When Fazbear's Fright burned down it is unknown what happened to Springtrap, though it was mentioned that anything that survived the fire was auctioned off and sold.
