"Its very first memory starts from a warm hug."
- Happy Teddy Bear's Entry
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.
However, the employee trapped during the hug will enter into an 'Out of Control' state and will die after the task waiting time ends. If the player ends the day before the employee's death is confirmed, the employee can survive for the next day.
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 seven year old girl. 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 underneath a dresser. 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.
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.

- "An Abnormality that resembles a large, raggedy teddy bear. Its missing some fur and only has one eye."
- "Judging from the name written on the worn ribbon around its neck, its former owner must loved the bear. The ribbon is too tattered to make out the name. It seems the bear knows that it has been abandoned and looks dejected."
- "<Counseling Log 32_356>
Employee M2434: "I was on night patrol duty. The teddy bear didn't require much attention. It was harmless most of the time. I simply looked inside the containment unit to check on it. It was hugging someone. At first, I thought <Redacted> was working late. But something was off. I yelled at <Redacted> to take a break. I went inside the containment unit, but <Redacted> didn't answer. I pressed the emergency button and called in reinforcement. <Redacted> had been dead for 8 hours. And for all that time, from the moment the work day started until I found them, the bear hugged <Redacted>.""

Remember article 3 in the Employee Manual?
"Do not be attached to the Abnormalities."
I couldn't understand what that meant at first.
Do you think empathizing with those monsters is even possible?
Hey, they really are monsters, you know. It's okay to call them that when it's just you and me.
Happy Teddy Bear is your second Abnormality, right?
You must have thought not all Abnormalities are monstrous after looking at it.
An abandoned teddy bear may even have stirred up some long lost memory of yours. Hey, I understand that.
Anyway, it seems Teddy liked your hug.
Yup, it produced more energy when you were around.
And then they put you in charge of the bear, right?
You must have felt some kind of responsibility for it, didn't you?
I became worried as the time you spend in its containment unit increased.
To me, it looked like you were doing charity work for an orphanage.
It seemed the bear thought you were its new owner.
Maybe you'd be happy to hear that.
But it never want to be separated from its owner ever again.
I know you probably promised it that you'd return,
but it didn't understand. It can't understand.
I heard you miraculously survived the ordeal.
And they spent an hour separating you from its deadly embrace.
Even if others forget about you,
I promise that I will always remember you.
I wish you well.

- Its first letter in the subject number classify it as 'Trauma', due to its own story of being abandoned after the child who used to be with it grew up and left it behind, trying to not let go its next 'owner'.
