  • one theory I just had: Thin Mono is desprately trying to end either 6 or his younger self, to stop the cycle, right? why would he bother unless he believed it could work? I think that, as time goes on, thin Mono gets stronger and stronger, until he will eventualy be able to kill six and end the cycle, bringing peace once again to the world. however, the gameplay is only the first rounds of the cycle, before their powers begin to become more even.

  • One thing I don't understand is why are there already all these monsters, when the signal tower hasn't even used mono's power to feed on the world and create the monsters?

  • So if Six hadn't stolen some of Mono's powers to escape, he probably would've been able to defeat his younger self as the Thin man (same powers + knowledge and experience)

  • A good analysis, but I'm not sure I agree completely with your conclusions. It's equally possible in my mind that the cycle of the Tower isn't one person endlessly being recycled, but rather of a succession. Similar to Six being the successor of The Lady, without being the same person, it's possible that Mono is just the latest in a line of Thin Men; people with that specific potential that the Tower uses in the same way, and become very similar mutant shells of their former selves. No time loop needed in that case. Similarly, Six's motivation for the betrayal of Mono may be simpler: Spite. He destroyed her music box. It was warping her, and keeping her prisoner, but it was also giving her comfort...she was happy with it, and he wrecked it. She's pragmatic enough not to linger, but perhaps not without one last moment of spitefulness. That moment when she first returns to normal, and she's standing there staring at him...there was a very ominous feel to that moment to me. Like she was very much considering attacking him. Then the tower starts to revert to fleshgoop and attacks, and the urgency of that moment takes over.

  • Thin man is the hanging man from Little Nightmares. In Little Nightmares, you can see a tall man hanging from the ceiling. You can see the same chair, and same door. He knew in every cycle he would fail to kill them both. The only other way he knew to end the cycle, would be to end his life.

  • My theory: Glitch Six is created when the Thin Man first abducts Six. It's strange that the thin man goes in by himself to take kids as there are multiple other glitch kids. Glitch Six knows mono can absorb and destroy(?) the other glitch kids so when mono is reunited with glitch six she forces six to drop him. I'm gonna guess that the glitch represents one's humanity as it acts very selfishly when given a chance to survive. This may also by why kids are affected differently and the thin man has to hunt them, taking their bodies but leaving their soul.

  • I have my own theory about why six let's mono fall: so first keep in mind that six is a sadistic and selfish character. Now we all know that she is distrustful and prefer to do things on her own. But she does realise that she must learn how to work and trust mono so as to have a chance to survive. She learns to care and appreciate mono and become friends. Thus she learns to trust mono. Then mono releases the thin man, the thin man kidnaps six and chases mono to get far away from six in an attempt to break the cycle, save himself and his younger self. But mono beats the thin man, he enters the signal tower and saves six by destroying her precious music box. But I think those who say that six betrays mono because she's angry and want revenge against him or those who say she wanted to save him from dying by her own hands because she sensed her hunger coming back are wrong. First, she really care much about mono and wouldn't do that to him. She also does feel safe with him. Then her hunger came for the first time after she escapes the signal tower. Meaning that little nightmares 2 is really a prequel and not a sequel. But that,so not enough to tell why six dropped mono. You must add the signal tower to that. The signal tower uses thin man (mono) to steal the life force of people around the world through tv broadcast. But it also hypnotise them and distorts them, giving them monstrous forms. Then read this; when hypnotising a person, the person loses her consciousness and obey the hypnotiser. But once the hypnosis is broken, or the person doesn't remember what happened, or the person doesn't even remember his or her life! So taking that in consideration, I think this is what happened to six. She was hypnotised by the signal tower. Once being freed by mono, she doesn't remember him and what he was for her, except the one who broke her music box, the only thing, I think, she remembers from her past. So this is why she let mono fall. Because for her he didn't free her, but destroyed the only thing that made her feel safe. Those who will say she absorbed a part of mono's power are also wrong, I think, because in little nightmares, six gains the lady power after eating her. She did not eat mono, she did not gain his powers. But as said in the video, the signal tower stole six's soul. Then six's soul appeared and showed her the maw. Maybe that was the last action of the signal tower controlling xix, this time via her own soul. I do think stealing her soul has something to do with her memory. That may be another reason for me why the signal tower took her soul. Each time she eats something in little nightmares, her soul watches over her then disappears. I think that by doing so she regains a part of her memory. Some will say I made this theory after watching the video "six lost memories" but I thought deeply about this, I've given many point to add proof to what I think is the truth and I hope it is true. Like and comment about it, I would like to know what you think about it, thanks.

  • Okay everyone this is my theory of the game about mono and six, what if this whole entire time from the very beginning of this game mono knew everything, what if he knew that he was the tall thin man, what if he already knew six? What if he tried to carve a different path, a different story but at the end it ended up being the same thing over and over again in a loop. Maybe that's why mono has a bag over his head to cover his face. The whole entire time his face was covered from six, maybe so that she won't be able to recognize him as the tall thin man when they do encounter the tall thin man. Because in the game we started off with that bag on our head with no backstory to why we have it on our head in the first place. Maybe because he knew that the older version of him which is the evil side of him will try to stop him from carving that path. And at the end of the game he probably didn't realize that the bag wasn't on his head anymore and that's why six saw his face. And maybe with his power he probably warped into the past, to the time he met and encounters six. I mean why would the game starts off with him coming out of a t.v. in the middle of a forest especially when we haven't unlocked the ability to warp through t.v.'s yet and that's not all the first person or living being he encounters is six not too far from where we start the game. Maybe his goal from the very beginning was to save six and his friendship and to save himself from turning into the tall thin man.

  • part 2 comes BEFORE part 1, and thats a fact u see six without a raincoat in part 2 and her WITH the raincoat in part 1 you might be wondering "how did she get on the boat then" well its possible she went down a storm drain because when you spawn in the first chapter of part 1 u find yourself under a circle of rain and a light above, sleeping in a suitcase. furthermore you actually take a vent to get onto the boat itsself, its posible that the boat was connected with the stormdrain and, if your thinking part 2 came after part one, explain how she got into the house WITHOUT her raincoat, she gets her raincoat halfway through part 2.

  • i think the reason six drops mono is because whenever mono has been saved by six he has his mask on but when fighting the thin man he takes off his mask allowing people to see his face. The first time six sees his face is when six was about to save him but then six realises that he has a similar look to the thin man, so she throws him down, thinking that the thin man will be no longer because she threw him, but she doesnt realise that she just started it again. I also think that the mono you play as isnt the first one because when you first spawn into the forest come from a tv but in the background you see a lot more tvs than just one, this could only mean that you arent the first mono and little nightmares 2 is an endless cycle but the thing that doesnt make sense for me is how the doctor,hunter and stuff like that are also in a loop.Maybe they are seperate people being transformed by the tower?

  • If time is a paradoxical nightmare, we resort to more clues through the main game, not the sequel. In the main game, we have the main boss, the lady. And her guests that are distorted with faces and eat a ton. The lady also hates her reflection, as all mirrors are shattered and that is how we kill her. Her powers are exactly like Thin man’s, sucking the life force of six and mono. But also, in the sequel after we kill the huntsman, we travel across water to the distorted world. And in the main game, we are on a boat (Theories of us being on a boat proven in every way) that could also be travelling away or to the distorted world. More likely to, because the lady might want to suck their life at the end, stuff them to feed the signal, as every one of them continue eating and want to eat you. But six also gains the ladies powers, and mono has the mans powers. Now, if mono becomes a paradoxically purposed human, for the thin man. Who continues being the lady to maybe deliver the main food source for the signal? Now, theories are that six becomes the lady. She needs to betray you to continue the corruption and the paradoxical nightmare. That might be why the thin man wants us both. Because the thin man, aka mono, wants to stop that. So he has to stop six from betraying you. How, exactly? He tries trapping six in a tv and making her a soul, so we can make the jump if we don’t rely on six all the time. Now, he fails. We do not see six after she drops you. But she could also be a paradoxically purposed human, and becomes the lady to continue giving meat to the signal. Now there are multiple endings, but we are talking about the basic ending. Anyway, I’ll end the theory here and will add more on request of comments.

  • Let's get real here, we only felt betrayed by the ending because the game put us in Mono's perspectives. If the game made us in six's perspectives, we will see how six became anxious as she saw mono can literally absorbing other kid's souls. Six also always being put in harm's way when she decided to trust mono and accompanied him. At the end, after realizing the power mono possesses, it is really the "killed or be killed" situation. Moreover, in the first game, we can see how six is also suffering just as much as mono. She can never be happy again without mono. They were both victims in little nightmares world.

  • ya'll really think that the character designs are the true nightmares of the game, but if u ask me id say its the fact that Mono is faced and forced into a position where he's facing his greatest fear and losing horribly.. being alone..... that's not all, the fact that he realizes that he himself was the thin man means he knows that he's stuck in a infinite loop. same for Six, she's deemed to become The Maw woman after consuming her, Mono and Six are doomed with a horror that has no face, no form, no motive and the worst, no end to its torture. they repeat the same process of trying to survive the monsters and at the end realize that they themselves are the same Monsters that they killed, at this point: 1. The Thin man is trying to save Mono by taking Six away from him,. trying to break the cycle of horror that they're stuck in. 2. As he said Six is a survivor SO the Maw woman tries her best, not to stop her former self, but to kill her.
