    Matpat I’m begging you to look into the last two theories more! They sound so interesting and I would love to watch a full episode of them ( or multiple, I like the 2 part episodes or the episode chains with 1 topic that gets looked at in multiple ways. I just don’t like the waiting, even if it gives me a chance to rewatch this entire ‘Fnaf lore in order’ playlist)

    I'm literally no longer able to keep up with these theories (hence this late comment) because I've been working on a FNAF theory of my own, in which I'm trying to figure out whether or not FNAF 4 can actually be solved, because honestly, that game STILL confuses me lore-wise.

      Like he’s the real father of Mike but not of Eli and CC- or maybe he thought that the child wasn’t his because maybe Mrs.Afton has cheated on him before 🤭🤔

    This is just a random thought I had while rewatching old theory videos - the Crying Child and Elizabeth have lighter skin tones than Michael, could they be half siblings or adoptive siblings? And if Michael looks just like his father, then could the other two be his step children?

    Im just throwing it out there but,what if William kept giving his son those nightmares so that he could stay alive,we can obviously see the medical stiff beside his bed,but what if all that shock,keeps his son alive,think of those movies where you die,but you wake up at the start of the day you died in,what if William found a way to do that,because there is NOW WAY someone can survive Nightmare Freddy’s Chompers

    I like these theories but yes I have my own Wow. But with C.C I believe that he had his nightmares after he got bit why? Because if you look hear his bed there's a thing a patient uses (Idk what its called sorry) which means he was already bit by then but how did the nightmares come? Well I have a 2 theories on it 1. Is that when he died his trauma of the bullies came back to him as The Nightmare Chica as the chica bully, Nightmare Foxy as The Foxy bro, Nightmare Freddie, as The Freddie mask bully, and the others could be made from his mind from other trauma for example when Elizabeth got grabbed by CB (This is important I know it sound weird but Elizabeth go taken from the animatronics stomach) and what do you know the some of the nightmare animatronics have mouth in there stomachs :0 yes but and for the second theory about this is when C.C got bit Mr Purple guy took tests on him like you said but why did he put tests on him I think C.C helped on the Illusion disks maybe If you liked this theory I would really like to hear your thoughts on it (this is my first time theorising So it not that good sorry)

    I just noticed something weird in the Fazbear Frights books- Notice how the first word of each story has a big letter? For example, in "To Be Beautiful" the first letter is "F," so it's bigger than the rest. That's normal for many books, but if you look closely, there are smaller letters across the left side of it. The letters are "U S X" and on the right side of it is the letter "V" sideways. I don't think it's in every single story, just some of them, (including the Stitch wraith stories) but do the letters mean something or are they just there for show?

    Just had a thought about William Afton. I think William is purple because because he’s dead and something is inside. In the game where he is outside of the restaurant, they turn him away he is dark orange. After that he dies and turns purple and something takes over. Like how Michael did in the end of Sister Location. That’s my rant enjoy!

    Hey Mat, so you keep talking about how when “theory crafting” we should always put greater emphasis on the later games like fnaf 4 and sister location because fnaf 1 was supposed to be Scott’s last game. Well I think you should also be looking at fnaf 3 just like you would those later games. For many reasons but one really stuck out. In the fnaf 3 trailer we see two lines that read “He will come back” and “He always does” which is clearly talking about spring trap. These two lines clearly match to his famous line, “I always come back” in the much later games which in turn shows us that Scott probably had a pretty clear picture of the story all the way back in fnaf 3.

When did these get so far out of hand that it went from spirits of children possessing animatronic mascot animals from a craze purple man to this weird out of place sci-fi alien goo that is slowly taking over the world? I am seeing no logic to this. ^^;;

    So when Chica says "I was the first, I have seen everything" does she actually mean that she comes from a time before Fredbear's Family diner was even a thing? Since if the theory of her being part of the other crew before is true then she truly was before everything. Perhaps the Mediocre Crew is older then we think. They sure seem like they're very primitive in their designs. Maybe Chica truly has "seen everything".

    (this was the newest video I found) so I was thinking that what about the fact that baby being scooped just before mike in sister location is that why we get scrap baby? because It is very unlikely that ennard and baby can fuze that fast and then baby still can get used and then escape and then becoming scrap baby because how can an animatronic that is only partly part of another animatronic get kicked out OF ANOTHER ANIMATRONIC? (and yes I know that she(baby) wasn't shown but ennard says that she had been there)
