With all the pushes going on in media, like the MCU and James Bond, it's good to know that Five Nights at Freddy's is still going strong and coming out with new stories for me to theorize about. One of my favorite FNAF characters is the little plush monster himself, Psychic Friend Fredbear. He, and the other monster toys found throughout the FNAF franchise, are FULL of secrets. What are these toys and what do they have to do with stealing the forms of human children? Let's dive in!

@Scott Cotton Uh, what I mean is that if Fnaf 6 is set after FNaF 3 because of you know, Scraptrap, then Henry must be dead like he could not be literally alive in the time of events after FNaF SL but if fnaf 6 is set before fnaf 3 and after sl, then maybe it will make sense but Scraptrap? Afton? I just don't get it.

I’m almost certain that the one who says “I will put you back together” is the Fred Bear plush and not William, based on Nightmare Fred Bears death lines in UCN, two of which specifically call out ‘putting you back together’. Idk why he would say this if he never said it to begin with in fnaf 4, and it might be Scott’s way of clarifying it in his usual confusing kinda way. Just a though tho

Wait so Alec is like a fusion of the crying child and his older brother... Oh my god... So you know how in the fnaf book series, Charlie remembers a little brother named Sammy who was killed by spring bonnie? In the second book it was revealed that Sammy was Charlie, and her memory was altered when she was brought back by Henry. What if Michael Afton/Emily is both the crying child, and the older brother, and we are just seeing his altered memories? That's why the theories of Michael being the older brother and Michael being the crying child contradict each other. Maybe he treated Elizabeth the way the older brother treated the crying child, and now he is feeling the guilt as he is tortured by himself. Please tell me anything else this explains and anything that disproves it.

What if Plushtrap also is a Lonely doll? I mean, it would make sense from a business standpoint if Freddy’s made Lonely Bonnies and Lonely Foxies, but only Lonely Freddies? That doesn’t make sense.

Hey Matpat, I don't think the Freddles were explained of who they are. I think the Freddles are the Nightmarish Version of the Lonely Freddy's. And maybe there was 3 trying to body swap with Crying Child. But he avoids them and the Sound Delusion Discs make them his Nightmare that makes Nightmare Freddy.

Hold on. Hold on. Hear me out. What if the Freddles from FNAF 4 are supposed to represent the Lonely Freddy’s? Like think about it. They’re the only miniature Freddy’s seen in any game (other than 8-bit psychic friend fredbear). And since the nightmares are just formed from the sound disk illusion device, that’s why the crying child sees the Freddles as what he sees them as? No..? Too dumb? Ok-

I feel like some of the employees would have to know about the lonely freddies. Why else would they just keep a bin full of discarded freddies? Maybe they're worried that they would have body snatching abilities too? I know that sounds crazy but... time traveling ball pit.

Ok a big disclaimer for the foxy toy that belonged to Christopher(Crying child)His brother ripped it off of it infront of Chris and put it on himself to tell him that they are alive as a joke.Because Mike(Foxy boy) had the same nightmares just like chris!But he did not tell anyone cause he did not want to end up like Chris!And for there chis is scared of them most of the time from them being "Alive"Like his brother said to him!And Mike does not hate chris he is jealous cause he did not get as much attention as chris when he was younger!His father was neglect to him his mother Clara cared half of the time but not most.He was just as scared as chis when he was younger. And thank you and good bye from my Ted talk 😁👋
