Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ► bit.ly/3qwx0AW
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

    ok, if we are talking security breach theories, I've got one that is based SOLEY on the two trailers, so keep in mind, some of this is DEFINITELY not true, but just pieces mashed together: the first is that the animatronics do want to help Gregory, but don't know it yet, they are being manipulated, which could be signified by that incessant clicking throughout the trailer, Vanny is using them to catch Gregory. Vannessa knows something is off and is on the hunt. she is surprised to discover Gregory on a lift going down, hence that scene where we get a good look at her. Gregory is traversing the pizza plex looking for help, but is met by animatronics that are evil at each turn. he seeks out help in Moondrop (we will call him that for now) who seems to be the only one who is not granting instant death. he is the same animatronic as Sunny (temporary name) Sunny's face actually can change colors, allowing him to appear as the sun and moon. he is more friendly as the sun but odder as the moon, and more creepy. eventually, Gregory does meet Vannessa, who opts to help him. running from Vanny, they are confronted by still controlled animatronics. other trailers have helped us to theorize that the animatronics may be helping Gregory, which this trailer may still support. Gregory is confused and scared, so any animatronic running up to him could be attempting to catch him, or they may be relieved to see him in a sense, but are enthusiastic and scare him. while there are only 1 true animatronic for each of the band, they each have their own sort of room to chill in and relax, or meet fans, then go on stage later, Gregory recognizes this and checks regularly to make sure they are all still there, only to find Roxanne is missing, she had just left her room and noticed Gregory. I'm almost done. Montgomery (forgive the spelling) may be good at the point where he busts a fence open. the key factor that helps determine this is that he opens it rather than knocks it down. and as for the hand there at the end? two theories: 1) its nightmare's hand 2) it is Glitchtrap (stick with me here) If we follow Matpat's lore for fnaf, then Glitchtrap has never had an actual body or animatronic suit. Glitchtrap is so evil that his endo reflects it, so even before his suit has formed, his endo begins to lose it. Glitchtrap's corrupted endo was discovered, and quickly secured under the pizzaplex. now it is trying to escape, this may also be the same moment where Glitchtrap is speaking to Vanny in the begging. Thats my big theory. pleases tell me what you think

    Weird thought, but Ive been rewatching these theories, and I was wondering “How come Mike cannot die” then I came up with something which is highly unlikely, maybe he cannot die for the same reason William can’t, if Cassidy is keeping William alive what if the crying child is keeping his brother Micheal alive. There isn’t any evidence for this, its just some crazy thought.

    uhhh matpat, in the fnaf security breach gameplay trailer, we see gregory looking into some cameras and he has the same shirt as him, he has the white line on the shirt, and he could be the crying child. THE SILLY FNAF BOOK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!! He Is Not Evan, He Is Gregory. We Might Also Play As Him Again Because In The Trailer, The Person You Are Playing As In The Trailer Is SUPER SMALL. So There. Make Sure You Make Another Video About This, Or Else, HE WILL DESTROY YOUR SOUL!! ;) (P.S I'm Not Flamingo)

    I mean his death wasn't really on screen, since we saw it on a mini game instead having it animated by Scott, tbh, Scott should make a FNaF history gallery in Security and Breach when you complete the game and should the minigames should be found as real scenes. Who agrees?

    Hey i just had a thought if the purple man is a killer then why did he make it so eazy to find him out well i have the answer ok sister location at the end we see enard get inside of mike and use him as a vessle but here is where the purple guy comes into play bacicly fazbearz entertainment knew that the purple guy was experamenting with life and death and he was able to make sentiant robots so they knew that mike had ennard in him and he was reeking havic on the world so purple guy made the robots sentiant with one goal kill mike then comes fnaf 1 and 2 those were the two attempts to kill mike but they never succeeded and we can skip fnaf 3 but in fnaf four is where it gets juicey so the mini games arnt the crying childs games there michals they are flashbacks of the most traic moment of his life then we see the actuall gameplay where hes fighting the nightmares and this is when those scenes in sister location that showed mike walking and day by day mike had to fight the nighmares in his mind forever traped until ennard comes out of him and then he gets revived and lives on and also ennard lives on as well. (side note the purple man was betrayed by the spirits and was made into springtrap). But matpat if you see this just think why did the purple guy make it so ovious for us the therists and fazbearz entertainment and that was my thery on fnaf i hope matpat sees this and mentions a video about it. BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY, A GAME THEORY THANKS FOR READING.

    I was reading the third fazbear frights book, and I noticed a small but consistent detail. In the last story, titled the new kid. *spoilers ahead* when Kelsey gets into the Freddy suit, he tries to dance in it. The book notes that Kelsey specifically put both his arms out to the side before the spring traps snapped shut. At first I thought it was something oddly specific to point out. But in fnaf 2? I believe.. the 8 bit minigames.. when afton goes into the spring Bonnie suit, his arms go straight out to the sides before the spring traps snapped shut too. It got me thinking... I wonder if it means anything...
