Plz read this matpat The neighbor is actually a park engineer. His park is called the GOLDEN APPLE AMUSMENT PARK. Very suspicous. Any way, on the first day of the park, a girl died on the neighbors roller coaster. Thst leads everybody to hate him. After a few years, the main charecter moves in next door. At this time, the neighbor still had children. Aaron and mya. This is true because of proof from hello nrighbor hide and seek. The main charecter called nicky, becomes friend with Aaron. After the summer passes, their mom dies in a car accident. I belive the devil crashes the car. After this the children disapeer. I dont know if any of this is cannon hiw ever. This is from the book. One more thing, the neighbor has autism.

Actually golden apples are what the gods eat to keep them immortal, and one day a goblin came and scattered some of them around earth. Maybe the neighbor found some and kept them there. You see, the neighbors family died and it drove him to the break of kidnapping, maybe he has the apples so he won’t die and go to hell.

I think that maybe in the car crash the neighbor lost his pregnant wife and made a deal with the devil to bring her and the baby back and that he then became insane when the devil made the deal and those are the baby and the woman in the basement and are trying to get away from his insane overprotectiveness

I think it's annoying how game devs get lazy, and so they don't have to translate, either use gibberish or no words.

I know this is three years late but i think the game character is gay and the neighbor is the dad. He is extremely religious so he refuses your character. Which would explain the bible stuff as well as being locked in the pantry (kinda like a closet) but i don't know just throwing stuff at the wall and seeing what sticks.

Golden apple is an amusement park... Golden apple Amusement park. The reason the golden apple is everywhere is because, the neighbor had made a rollercoaster in the amusement park but he didn’t add emergency brakes to it and a girl died in that park because of the neighbor. The person in the Basement is his child Aaron. It is still a mystery who the shadow man is but I have a theory that the shadow man is just in the neighbor’s mind. (Source: the Hello Neighbor Books)

I think your dad,the neighbor was like q devil for him and he is dreaming as he is searching for his dad's mysteries. And i think there are no dead bodies in the game couse u are a kiddo so you dont know how does it look...Idk if the theory is true but idc!

DUDE IN HELLO NEIGHBOR HIDE AND SEEK THE NEIGHBOR IS THE FATHER OF TWO CHILDREN ONE IS A DAUGHTER WITH BLONDE HAIR AND ANOTHER IS A BOY THAT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THE CHARACTER YOU ARE PLAYING!!!! AND LATER ON IN THE GAME THE MOTHER (Neighbor's wife) DIED FROM CANCER THEN THE GAME BECAME VERYY SAD AND THE NEIGHBOR SEEMS TO REGRET SOMETHING SOMETHING sinister............... WITCH EXPLAINS WHAT UOU JUST SAID AND... THE NEIGHBOR seems to like to chase your character out like he doesn't want to hurt him... Olso like the other commenter(caffeinated meerkat) said to a child's eyes the house seem way bigger than normal which is why neighbors house is sooo big. And we never see the sister and she oddly looks like the girl with the eyepatch from hello guest... And when you reach the mountain you are kidnapped bye a stranger... Some one you don't know. BUT I THINK THE PERSON YOU ARE PLAYING AS THE SON BEGAN HAVING NIGHTMARES ABOUT HIS FATHER TURNING EVIL SO HE WANTS TO HELP LIKE the game hello Doctor When the doctor turned evil and another commenter(pie guy)said he thinks that hello neighbor is a doctor. Parilized with fear the son visits the neighbor and finds him stuck with the shadow man and tries to help but the neighbor does not want the son to end up like him but the son outsmart him and run into the basement meeting his demise.... AAnd so the neighbor filled with anger tries to chase the neighbor out of his house but ended up being possessed by on of the shadow mans demons and began shapeshifting into a kid to lure more kids into his house who wants whatever he promised in his basement, he takes them one bye one and giving the souls to the shadow man. When the kids that survived finally reached the basement..... They just die and the neighbor is continually doing it over and over again until....... Hello neighbor two alpha one when he finally escaped his possession and hid his past in his new house upstairs in the attic until one day a curious girl came creeping in and found out everything..........A Well, that's it that's my theory until alpha two comes out

My theory on hello neighbor is that the neighbor lost his wife the child got sandwiches you the person that plays the game so in order to get her back he made a deal with the devil and as a kid not knowing who his mom is he got depressed and only had a small amount of friends so in order to make his son happy he made a deal with the devil to find a way to bring his wife back and make the child happy that’s why he does not kill you and that’s why there’s rooms in there

I remember how I always thought that the shadow is really the neighbors daughter Because at one point in alpha 3 we are on a roller coaster and then we get to the end running over the girl . And the birthday just being one of the children’s birth day and the scared manikin was just the neighbor thinking about his deal with the devil and how this will affect his family. And the shadow has strings of hair coming out of its head . When the giant neighbor looks through the window he is trying to find his daughter then he finds out she is dead so that is what the rollercoaster is about. So the roller coaster didn’t kill her but ... get this .... her brother did. In the hide n seek game at the end we walk to a plank that is high up with our doll on it then our brother gets mad that he had lost and pushes her off then kills her. also in I think it was in alpha 3 we see the neighbor in a car crash he was going to leave it all behind to see his daughter. But the devil wasnt done yet and then he made the neighbor survive the death. But hey that’s just my theory🤔😀😀

The stair case goes down,heck is well at least in cristianity there are screams when YOU go into the basement the fear rooms aren't for you there for the neighbor there the neighbors memory's the neighbor was probably abused as a kid being locked up and hurt,the doll that was stalking the party it was the neighbor.The neighbor seeing the other kids be happy something he wasn't granted,the shadow in my guess was the father,on the sign there was only one parent the father locked the neighbor up in the closet forgot him in the store hit him over the head with the record player that's why it's shattered the neighbors dad hit him in the head with the player the reason why there was only one person in the picture was because it was him and his mother,the little picture next to the golden apple record player it was 5 people the falling kid was the neighbor the big one was the father and the other three were the three voices in the basement run girl,shhhh women/mother and baby.this is just speculation but the thing he was keeping in was his family he wasn't hurting them he was keeping them in for there own safety there was a crib and a bed if he was hurting them he would have not gave them a bed and a crib he only kills you when you keeping coming back,it's clear cut you are the father the abusive father who hurt the daughter,son,wife and baby the apple represents temptation for freedom but he can't give them that because there father and husband are across the street that will hurt them again that's why there is no new scream after the neighbor opens the door he didn't hurt them he was saving them from you that's why he didn't look for you he was caring for his family that's why he doesn't kill you unless he has too

Sophie Måned siden
Ok, ok I know Im late, and I'm sure you already know this, but I can't watch this and NOT say something. The golden apples represent the carnival that the neighbor worked at, where he designed a roller coaster a child died on. He feels responsible for killing the kid. Once again, I'm sure you have already read the Hello Neighbor books, but still :)

In Korea and China, 4 is thought of as an unlucky number, much like 13 to many people. The word for death in Mandarin sounds like “sa” and the Korean and Mandarin word for four is “sa”. For this reason, many people try to avoid fours and many elevators and hotels don’t have a fourth floor. Please correct me if I’m wrong. 😁

Okay so here’s my theory based on your evidence: The neighbor had a wife and was taking her someplace. Unfortunately they got into a car crash and he lost her. His son (you playing) blamed him for it but didn’t really say anything. He started becoming over protective of his son because he didn’t wanna lose him like he lost his wife so he made things seem worse than they actually are and those fear rooms are actually your mind as a child trying to interpret how the places are because the neighbor (your father) made them seem horrific. Eventually you get tired of it and you snap at your father and move out. He makes a deal with the devil in an attempt to get you and his wife back but unfortunately things don’t work out as planned. He got ashamed and didn’t like the choices he made so he tried hiding them from everyone including you. I think that’s why he doesn’t want you in his house and when you do get in he doesn’t harm you when you go into his house, he just puts you back at yours. Lol thanks for reading

SPOILERS Rewatching this even back then before hide and seek its so sad to see him scared when he rushes to the door after hearing what is probably a memory of his daughter scream as she fell from the roof and him holding the door closed since he locked his son in the basement after he pushed her. and the fact his son is still haunting him since he starved n the basement if not a ghost then also a memory or a delusion since he isn't completely sane. i remember the ending never made sense but now everything makes way more sense

This is how I think the story is (it's tied with all the games btw) the neighbour gets married they give birth to two kids a boy and a girl they love hide and seek but one day while they were on their way home the had a car crash later on the girl dies due to a push on the roof later we see the neighbour burying her. Later the protagonist or the boy grows up. and decided to see good ol' pa. But he's changed paranoia and the such then you disappeared. Later we find out that a bunch of kids have made friends with the secret neighbour the kids are saving him and they eighter save him or dissapear. Later he goes crazy and wears a clown costume evidence in a update and yeah I think its like that not religiously but Lifely? Is that a word?
