"Its memory starts from warm hug."
- Happy Teddy Bear
Happy Teddy Bear (T-04-06), previously known as Happy Teddy, is a large, worn-out teddy bear with a chewed ear, a single white button eye, brown matted fur, a light brown muzzle, and a faded green ribbon around its neck. Its stuffing spills out from multiple tears in its fabric.
Its special ability is activated when an employee enters Happy Teddy Bear's containment room, and it will hug the employee tightly, choking it to death. The ability is triggered only upon sending the same worker twice in a row. Triggering its ability will also consume 1 work.
Happy Teddy Bear's story can be deciphered through its Flavour Text when performing work on it. It can be said that Happy Teddy Bear was packaged in a big decorated box for the birthday of a girl of 7 years old. Happy Teddy Bear enjoyed all the nights with the child, remembering the hugs that they gave to it. But as time passed, the child grew up, and Happy Teddy Bear was abandoned in a wardrobe. It never forgot the girl.
How Happy Teddy Bear 'came to life' is still unknown, as well where it was found and how it arrived in the facility.
Happy Teddy Bear loves hugs, but for fear being abandoned again, it will not let the person hugging them go, squeezing them so tightly that they suffocate and/or are crushed to death.
Happy Teddy Bear responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Attachment, Insight and Repression, and Instinct.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Happy Teddy Bear's emotional state is divided into 3 sections, bad, normal, and good. Completing 0-5 E Boxes will cause it to feel distressed, completing 6-10 will cause it to feel normal, and 11-15 will make it's mood result happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 10 seconds.

- "The teddy has shaggy fur and is missing one eye."
- "Around its neck it has a ribbon with what looks like a name written on it. Maybe from a loving old owner. It is too worn out to distinguish the name. Creature's shoulders are slouched as if it knows that it has been abandoned. It seems to like hugs."
- "It has been confirmed that periodic anesthesia shows higher efficacy. They have an intense obsession towards the owner. It is yet to be confirmed what side effects are caused when the Abnormality reconizes the person as an owner."
- "Interview Log 32_356 - Employee M2434: "I was on rounds for the night shift. Happy Teddy Bear didn't need much attention, it was usually harmless. I looked inside the containment room facility, just to check. Teddy was embracing someone. For a while, I thought it was <Redacted>. <Redacted> was in charge of the Teddy so I thought he was staying late to take care of him. Teddy likes hugs, but something was off. I decided to ask <Redacted> whether he wanted to take off or not. I went into the area and called for <Redacted> but there was no answer. I pulled the emergency switch and called for help. Apparently, <Redacted> had been dead for 8 hours. <Redacted> had been in Teddy's arm since morning, until night-time when I found him."
- "<<>Old letter with 'cannot be sent' sign<>> Do you remember Article 3 from the 'Employees Only' manual? "Never develop personal feelings towards Abnormalities." I didn't understand this at first. I mean, do you think it's possible to have those kinds of feelings towards these monsters? It's okay, they are monsters. We can call them monsters when we are alone. 'Happy Teddy Bear' is the second Abnormality you undertook, right? After seeing Teddy, you probably thought that not all Abnormalities are hideous and scary. Perhaps it brought back some memories as it reminded you of an abandoned old doll. I think Teddy liked your hugs. Yes, Teddy would produce more energy than usual whenever you were sent in. And before we knew it, you were in charge of Teddy. You probably felt something similar to responsibility, right? As the days of you going inside Teddy's containment room grew, my worry grew as well. Because you seemed as if you were a volunteer going to an orphanage. ... I think Teddy thought of you as a new owner. You would have been happy to hear that. But you know... Teddy didn't want to be taken away from his owner again. Although you would always promise to come back, Teddy didn't understand. I heard that you miraculously survived. And that it took an hour to pull you out of Teddy. Even if everyone else forgets about you, I'll always remember you. I hope for a miracle. -From K.H."
