Ok, Big Brain Theory time! So, you know how Glitchtrap (William Afton) has a cult, right? Vanny was apart of that cult. SCOTT IS VERY PRECISE WITH SHADING, And in the mini games that feature purple guy, I believe all the versions are different shades. WHAT IF, it’s not William! What if it’s actually different members on the Cult! That’s why in the books, it’s DAVE and not WILLIAM!! They’re different people at maybe different locations! What if they’re all being controlled by Glitchtrap and Vanessa isn’t the only one!? Anyway, that’s just a random theory that I came up with, it’s probably not true, but I’d appreciate if Mat, you, whoever, gives me I put on this!

I don't know if anyone ever said this before but I have a theory, I think Cassidy is in the Golden Freddy plushy before crying child get killed and was trying to keep crying child safe since Cassidy knows how a person crying child's father is. Crying child was scared from animatronics because Cassidy said him what has happened to himself and other children. Or maybe Cassidy was trying to make crying child get killed for get revenge from his father. Welp that's all, thanks for reading!!

Hey Matpat so when you were talking about the possibility of multiple kids possessing golden freddy, all I could think back to was the happiest day mini game in connection to andrew. There are infact multiple children there , but it is evident that the party is some sort of weird spirit birthday party , but theres actually a kid there sitting at the first table you see in an alligator mask , and if it's a spirit party maybe each child is having their own happiest day birthday party and they're all dead.At each table there are 2 kids besides one table which is one child, making the ammount of children 5 which could possibly fit , but what I'm trying to say is that maybe Andrew is more connected to the game series then we thought ? Maybe if we are connecting the 85' murders to the games , we could connect that group of children to the murders? Just a thought, you should see if it fits in!!

New sit com show hate and sadness on Saturday night live on fox I'm mean disney ♪"ones out for revenge the others willing to forgive there opposites but they share a animatronic"♪ sorry that was cringy but it just popped into my head a really bad sitcom about golden freddy ok now that I imagine it it could be funny with them just bumping into stuff or it could be really boring with them doing nothing because they can't move speaking of that what if. One soul is in the suit and the other is in the endo idk it might be possible hey about the stupid sit com show idea what if it's one of those. Negitive guy has to live with positive guy or in this case the crying child is more naive and inoccent well in comparison to the cold and biter cassidy when ever c.c comments on something cassidy points out how it harmed her in the past yep I'm going to Hollywood. Jk get me a netflix deal no even worse put it on disney channel and bring back the laugh track

​@Webdings Oops, i meant that at the time of fnaf2 she didn't fully remember who her killer was.

@mo abo Well the second one I agree with but why would they attack you if they forget, and if they are aware you would think they remember
mo abo
mo abo 15 timer siden
In the fourth closet,it is explained that spirits can forgot who they are in life and as well as their killer.And that could explain why she attacks you in Fnaf2. And also the reason she attacks you in pizzeria simulator,is because as we see in lefty's blue print,lefty's false bracelet output ability caused the puppet's old programming to over power charlie's soul and activately seek out of lefty, which caused it to get capture outside outside of charlie's control.And the dream wand soother plays on charlie's apparent love for lullabies,using one to soother her soul and keeping her dormant.Upon lefty's suit seal,a steady voltage is provided,as the puppet's behavior is not guarantee inside (meaning that it could still attack innocent people). And that is the reason why she attacks you in pizzeria simulator

The puppet kinda stated herself in ultimate custom night that she doesnt hate william Oh and she isnt with the other spirits when William died
FuLlNaMe Dag siden
Maybe the puppets attacked the night guards because she never identify William's face until his death inside Springtrap, later in Pizzeria Simulator she is not technically attacking us, is Lefty, probably is having an order of attack everything with color purple, an order given by Henry, is what I think.

Using the logic of 2 kids in golden Freddie doesn’t logic follow that the ‘Do you remember your name’ answer is Cassidy? It’s not like Cassidy isn’t a unisex name (At least what I saw as I was looking for names to change my own) so crying child could’ve easily been named Cassidy as opposed to vengeful spirit as we’ve been believing. Given the answer/responses we already see in the logbook, the fact the question about ‘do you remember your name’ is also in the word search as well as in the light writing makes it seem like the answer in the word search is for the question also in there.

mo abo okay, I’ll accept that, just the thought I had probably way too late at night. Though I do think your third point is weaker than the first two
mo abo

Cassidy can't be bite victim..just no because 1-Faded text leaves "my name" in pages of the logbook and they all have special numbers,and when you keep going to the pages that has the line "my name".And then put them in the word search,you will get the name "Cassidy" and that means that faded is Cassidy and we all know that faded is asking altered (bite victim) questions related to him. 2-Cassidy is literally described as a girl in the fourth closet,now people would use the excuse "BuT tHAT IN thE BOOKs" which is shitty, because the characters in the books name,appearance,hair color and all that.Don't change in the games (especially the missing children incident kids ) here wen have Elizabeth ,does her appearance change in the games?nope ,and here is Susie.Did her appearance change in the games?nope,so why could Cassidy's appearance change in the games. 3- And the last piece of evidence for this is that golden Freddy's laugh in fnaf1 is a girl laugh, now most people say that the laugh could be a young boy laugh,which is so stupid and also the sound files of the game says this

@mo abo 1 The purple car could just be a company car. Because william and henry worked together so the could have the same color car. 2 Jr's could also be the fnaf 2 location, or a junior location. A new vertion of the old one. 3-He is not abusive by knocking on his door. If he just lost his daughter he would be over-protective agains his sons. 4-We have never heard that Michael is a part of the Afton family. So it could still be a part of the Emily family. So i still think orange guy is Henry.

Orange guy is William Afton lol,because 1-Orange guy has a purple car and the only one in the series who has a purple car is William. 2-Jr's is most likely a bar,and why would Henry be an alcoholic.But on the other hand if its William,then it would make sense. 3-If orange guy is Henry,then why would he be abusive towards his son lol. On the other hand if its William then it would make sense. 4-We see a dude on the couch watching TV,and he has a gray shirt and has gray text,and the only one who has these things is mike (foxy bro)and also we see mike watching TV in sister location,just like that dude in the midnight motorist minigame
