  • Hey i just have something to say- I don't think its William in hell because why would he have spring trap and scrap trap as options? also Micheal is the one who actually gets the full view of each of the characters but then again doesn't explain why fnaf 4 characters are there and how William or Michael are able to know how they look

  • Wait I’m confused about the audible thing, I have some of the books on there and I don’t have the sound effects.

  • I have something to add. so Andrew has an alligator mask and what does animal mask bring to mind? The happiest day minigame wat happened at the end of the happiest day minigame? The souls left and the masks were left behind but Andrew in the man in room 1280 still has a mask he refused to go on. idk why I did this I just thought it was cool.

  • After watching the latest fnaf security breach trailer i started watching MatPats fnaf theory videos and in this video at 7:45 caught my attention especially that alligator mask line because it's weird how they had to especially point out it's an alligator mask like it was suppose to be a wink towards something like it's trying to imply that this took place during or after Fnaf Security Breach because timeline wise it should make since Montgomery the alligator is the latest and newest animatronic and through out fnaf history their has never been an alligator base animatronic that means that in the games purple guy is still alive that means counting Glitchtrap which is a part if his soul their are 2 William Aftons now and maybe that's why at the end of the newest trailer it shows a clawed purple arm maybe its not Glithtrap getting a body but William Afton getting a prosthetic body or suit to help him move and kill with glitchtrap/vanny maybe instead of getting animatronics to help him kill kids he'll probably thanos it as in "Fine I'll do it myself" or "If you want it done right you do it yourself".

  • So I tend to make connections between things I see or hear that no one else sees, but did anyone else besides me think of Darkiplier when Golden Freddy’s eyes lit up red and blue in this video? Because... you know... Darkiplier is two souls... one of them’s blue, and... the other’s red and stuff...? Anyone?

  • You said that the animatronics are either possessed by souls OR agony, so then why is Golden Freddy twitching according to all cutscenes? (mainly referencing 9800 cutscene UCN) you also said that there could be more than just 2 souls in Golden Freddy, so what if, just throwing this out here, Golden Freddy isn’t actually twitching, but there is a soul controlling each moving part and they’re just trying to become in sync or something in that category...also, I’m questioning why in FNAF 2 when Golden Freddy jumpscares, there are no eyes (white dots) seen, yet in the 9800 UCN cutscene there are eyes, (white dots) and it’s even more odd since it’s farther away. That I have no possibly explanation for (none with logic at least) but yeah that’s a thing. :>

  • Ok so you inspired me to look at my fnaf book "the freddy files" and this may not be important at all but the beginning picture for chapter 2, it has a picture of the puppet giving a present to a little kid with red hair and freckles. You mentioned in an earlier video that Fritz, the one who posseses foxy, has freckles. Well in the background of this image, there are 5-7 normal foxys, and 2-3 funtime foxys in the background. Idk maybe this means absolutely nothing but I thought it'd be interesting to point out Edit, it also mentions foxy twice on the page next to it

  • Any chance someone is going to work on explaining why we are collecting remnant during Special Delivery and sending out random endoskeletons to collect pieces for more on and on and on?? Are we sending the StitchWraith out or something? If it is designed by FazBear Entertainment, is FazBear as a company aware of remnant and using it, or are they unaware of what we're using their tech to do?
