What if we rethink the ENTIRE lore of FNAF? I'm talking taking it back to the crying child, Afton and the original suits and a mysterious Orange - yes ORANGE - Man that no one was able to figure out. What if William Afton was not the only bad guy in the story? What if someone drove Afton into becoming Purple Guy? What if Henry had a bigger part to play all along? Today we are rewriting Five Nights at Freddy's with a new twist based on NEW evidence.

Nearly a decade now of hearing the closing line. “And that’s just a theory, a GAME THEORY! Thanks for watching!” It still hasn’t lost its charm, warmth and honesty.

i like what he did, looking at the vantage point of the books and looking at the games as the lore, just like when we look at the vantage point of the games, then use the books as extra lore

Maybe if psychic fredbear is a lonely freddy the reason the text is a lighter shade of yellow is due to what is controlling the psychic lonely Freddy no longer speaking through the Freddy and instead is talking directly to the crying child.

I think the random girls room is Charlotte's because Charlotte being the puppet, puppet was in fnaf 2 and mangle was in fnaf 2 so that little detail on the floor of mangle plays a big part for another theory so when Crying child meets pigtails girl (or Elizabeth) that's William's daughter Henry and William being best friends and co- workers Crying child would of been able to see her. But back to the random girls room has mangle who was in fnaf 2 but pigtails girl ( Elizabeth ) has toys of the toy animatronics in fnaf 2 so Charlotte and Pigtails girl (Elizabeth) might be connected and you saying Crying child is Henry's son, I've seen a video of Henry that had a son called Sammy and I think thats right, so Crying child is not Chris/Christopher (what fans say) but Sammy Henry's son. I just watched a bit more and you mentioning sister location would be odd usually children who have parents who are close to someone would call them "Uncle" or "Auntie" so Crying child would say "Uncle William". Then I realized Red head in Sister Location was William's daughter we played as Micheal Afton. Does the name ring a bell? YEP! AFTON SO MICHEAL IS WILLIAM'S SON AND well...? Elizabeth is in fact William's daughter so my version of these is that Crying child was never William's son but Henry's son so when we play the actual fnaf 4 game we might be another son of William's because I've seen another theory "Fnaf 4s biggest mistake" Crying child got his frontal lobe bitten off he wouldn't have nightmares because he wouldn't care so we are playing as William's other son, let's call him "Chris" Like what fans say. So in fnaf 4 we are playing as "Chris" William's other son. BOOM THERE'S ANOTHER THEORY FOR YOU But then who is Crying child being tormented by? Rather Micheal Afton going to Henry's house or an older brother of Crying child's and Henry's other son. Another theory I'm so smart UwU

LISTEN! This Is a stretch okay BUT.. William Is purple Henry Is Yellow (Opposites) William Is a serial killer, but cares about his kids Henry Is a over working father, who while the time having kids neglects them There are more differences with them that you can look up. But I subject this entire thing isn't only just about the missing children, what if this is about more then only (CASSIDY'S) revenge

If its true Baby can change her shape and Elizabeth is in Charlotte' s robot body why dont we see her change shape or anything like that in vr help wanted or sister location? You think we would see her do that atleast once. Unless the books are lying and she cant change her shape.

Maybe just maybe the orange guy is trying to clean up aftons mistakes and murders and in the process henery the yellow guy got an idea of making the Anamatronics and supperessing there soles in them so that they can live on but then regrets making and tries to destroy them and gets scared and goes to his house seeing the foot prints and the broken glass he assumes the aft on killed his son

It might have been William/ Glithtrap that does make alot maybe another point of view fnaf 2 fnaf jr might have been a few years after so maybe vr was created by then, and how Charli died maybe that could make sense maybe what your saying is that we're a different view while maybe we're also going to different parts. I'll explain let's say the lore but instead defided into different sections. There deaths. How they were recreated like how Michael was reborned and Charlotte reborn with becoming a robot of different kinds. and parts and events happening too.

I’m rewatching these and I just realized, he says midnight motorist is the night that Afton takes his first victim, but then why is Henry turned away from Jr.’s? According to what he said previously, there were no victims yet, so he had no reason to be turned away right?

I think that the pink guy, the purple guy, the yellow guy, and the mustard guy are all different. This is just a theory, but it is plausible. Each of them have a child or somebody that is close to them, like the yellow guy, could be charlies spirit roaming around after she died, and the pink and purple guy could be either of the aftons, don't know which.

The one thing I believe that humankind has the most issues with games like this is the empty feeling it gives you. That empty feeling leaving you to think "What if there's more to this than what we think?" That feeling that makes you go "There is more to thins I know it." Though I do have a theory myself (though I have never read the books nor have I played the original Five Nights game. I've only played sister location and custom night). What if William Afton and Henry Emily created the disks to scare their own children not to go near them (it's most likely). Another thing about Henry Emily. What if he went insane when his daughter died? And that is why he created his own daughter as a robot. Because he feels that the pain will go away. It's the same with William Afton during the bite of 1987 (or 1983). What if he brought back his kid as a robot? Though, if we look at the dream theory in your other videos. What if it is a dream except it all connects to the bite. For example. The bite was the start of it all. It's what made everyone go "What is this really?" What if we are playing as the boy who was bitten? What if we are dreaming inside a hospital...? But here is the catch. If we are dreaming in a hospital and we hear the alarm go off what if we are still conscious, and nobody knows?

Ok, hear me out for a second... In the Silver Eyes it is said that Michael is possessing Golden Freddy. That would make Charlie’s brother Sammy to be the Crying Child from FNaF 4. Let’s just say that Sammy died from the bite and then gets put back together by Henry. Fredbear took a good ol‘ munch on his brain, what DOES he remember now? Maybe he thinks his name is Michael now. It would explain the frequent asking in the Survival Logbook about what he remembers and if he remembers his NAME. What if he doesn’t? What if he doesn’t remember his own name and just chooses Michael as his name. Charlie, the other and him were friends with Mike before he got stuffed. Henry committed suicide with one of his animatronics, so he couldn’t tell Sammy that his name indeed wasn’t Michael. Maybe Sammy thinks that William is his father because of his name. Maybe Willi A choose to roll with it. Who knows... Think about it. Thanks for hearing me out. :)
Shy and Nameless
Shy and Nameless 8 dager siden
And in case you‘re asking yourself; „why would William just roll with Sammy thinking he‘s Michael and Williams son?“ Remember, William lost his daughter. His little girl Elisabeth. He is mourning over her death. He is using Sammy, who thinks he’s his son, as a coping mechanism for his sadness. Pushing the thoughts of his dead daughter away with Sammy/Mike. (His wife probably wouldn’t like that tho...)
Shy and Nameless
Shy and Nameless 8 dager siden
This also explains Babys Dialoge in Sister Location. „I don’t recognize you, you are new.“ Elisabeth. Elisabeth says that. And it’s true. She has never met Sammy. She doesn’t recognize him, because she doesn’t know him. Now if Sammy/Mike and Elisabeth were Siblings don’t you think she would recognize her brother. But she doesn’t... that’s because they AREN‘T siblings.

okay so i have a theory for you So you said that scott does not do coincidences so in fnaf 4 theres the girl from the playground but you have never talked about her at all besides for the dream theory and scott doesnt do coincidences so maybe they could also posses an animatronic like mangle because as you can see the balloon boy in fnaf 4 outside could possibly be balloon boy from fnaf 2 sooo you should check more on those characters

I may be really late on this thread of theory, but I feel like throwing my 2 cents anyway: since now there's 2 Aftons around, and Mike clearly turns purple in FNAF 4, perhaps the yellow colour of Mustard Man is linked to the yellow suit William Afton wears when luring children. Also, the purple car to me is a hint of him being William.
