The withered Animatronics in Fnaf 2 are the Animatronics from 1985 I mean Fredbear and Spring Bonnie got retired. The toy Animatronics didn't exist in fact Phone guy said in the Night 3 call that the old Foxy (so withered Foxy) was too scary for the children so they build another Animatronic and that is Mangle to be child friendly. After the missing children inncident the old Animatronics became broken Animatronics. They replaced them with the toy Animatronics

Michael book the law book you can see the crying child memory except for one thing that the crying child didn't have is butter and money and the crying child name or Chris Afton when he died Michael wrote his memory and he wrote them to make sure he will remember his brother in The bite of 87 so fnaf4the TV doesn't count when The bite of 87 is not the bite of 85 of a 7 so one of the NOpostr said so the TV it doesn't mean the date in 19 85 so that mean 1987 Michael wrote him another all by myself and his brother first he write a a quote for a brother Chris say do you know them that mean that the five dead kid or should I said seven dead kids then he said this to him now and that make sure he like his self then he right Fred Bear and nightmare fredbear for him to know his memory about him his brother Chris Aftonthen he wrote this note for him to be like a little bit rude to him his brother what's your favorite toy that plastic little telephone so that mean you were mean to me about that little toy telephone and that's just a Theory a game theory

but what if in this new children murder its vanny and she found the ball pit or Afton directed her to the ballpit, just a thought since the teaser in the “Rock!” teaser you can see Vanny, when this VR prob wasn’t real in 1985 in the FNaF timeline and on the cover of “into the pit” the bunny is crying back tears if I see correctly

Wait a minute... the book trilogy is canon or not??? Cuz there’s only one detail that create an inconsistency in all of it : in the games, the spirits of the children « killed » William. But in the books, it’s Charlie and her friends! Please can you answer that in a next fnaf theory? (If of course we consider that the books are entirely canon with the games...)

I definitely think this is still the "missing children's incident". But this might be the "true" story, or closer to it. You mention, in your other video, that this time traveller boy might be the one to go one to make the games. So the games he makes are off, the children missing and stuffed in the suits, but in the "real" event that he is helping to cover-up, they are out and open. After all, people heard enough that they felt desperate enough to make that elaborate cover-up plan. So perhaps these stories, all of them, with their sort of ultimate timeline versions of these old FNAF 1- 8? (don't know what counts...the games up until VR) are the real versions of those stories. After all, he probably isn't going to make new games for those events but we KNOW that the events as we've seen them are now not part of the cannon of the games VR and going onward; he wanted a fresh reboot. These books, I truly think, are meant to be the real stories that get covered up, since they have that 'similar to the games, similar to the novels, more like a blend of the two with a new twist' feeling to them. I think it would make a lot of sense if these mini books are meant to inspire us to get those last pieces for the old games sure, but more important I think they are meant to pave the way for the new cannon for the games going forward. I find myself really wanting to make a video theory of my own talking about this lol.

14:47 idk if it's already been pointed out, but wasn't it (at least mostly) decided that it was the puppet who put the bodies in the suits? Rather than the killer/Afton? So what if everyone saw but then the puppet put the bodies in the suits in the Give Gifts, Give Life minigame and then when the police arrived or w/e they couldn't find the children because the bodies had been moved?

I think golden Freddy is a ghost or a phantom, because in fnaf2, golden Freddy was looking different and there was no two fredbear suits, also golden Freddy can teleport and can tell Michael things, yes then they had both souls in the suit of golden Freddy, then they forgot who they are then went with being golden Freddy

Fredbear family dinner is a different business, why I say this because in fnaf4 when the nightmare or the hat teaser came out when u bright it up it says fredbears family dinner not fazbear entertainment. And in real life u must have the same business name, and I think the Freddy fazbear business merge with fredbear family dinner just like Chuck E. Cheese merge with the rockets explosive ban.
