    Whether the theory ends up being correct or not, I think we can all thank MatPat and his team for coming up with these theories and piecing them together via videos for us!

    Having watched the next episode, I love how Fnaf has reached the point where ‘Hiding in an arcade cabinet that can only be reached by finding a hidden, disguised and completely optional door that will only open if you use the camera item to flash a bunch of scattered cardboard cutouts without the game giving you any reason to do so’ qualifies as ‘hiding in plain sight’

    You know, even if it's not the actual story, I kinda like this theory. It gives the series a "happier" conclusion since William came back for revenge after UCN, which was supposed to be like his eternal punishment.

  • // v i n y l //
    // v i n y l //

    She could be what I like to call a ,,metaphor character". We know that Scott like to do that to give cluese on the lore for other characters. She might not actually be Elizabeth, but representing Elizabeth so that we get a closer look at her story.

      @E I know....But you do reliese that they will to stuff the same as Scott did and he is still (kinda) relevant? He stillis the creator after all

      There’s a new team working on fnaf. Scott retired, and his original game was reworked by said team.

    Whether right or wrong, you gotta admit, the gregory is the crying child has a lot of evidence to back it. Tbh its a very reasonable theory

    I kinda agree because Gregory has the same designed shirt as Evan it the same with the pants and shirt are swapped colors but I don’t think Gregory is a robot far from it

  • BJ Schnauzer

    I just remembered something, gear lube for certain mechanical items is red, this may explain the bleeding line since that’s also what taking fluid out is called in the automotive field, similar to bleeding brakes, it wouldn’t be too far off to assume that what Michael could’ve perceived as blood, was actually mechanical Lube meant to keep Gregory moving, I like the idea of Gregory being a robot it definitely could work, and considering synthetic gear lube existed in the 80’s since Motul is credited with creating in in ‘66

  • SneakySileny

    William Afton is the definiton of "But wait, there's more!"

    • LesserTie282

      @Nicolás Mena Lol yeah that's true


      @Miketrapper04 palpatine only came back once though and it was off the sequel trilogy which was made by kathleen kennedy who openly admits her disdain for the star wars fandom and they aren't even considered canon anymore lucas disowns THAT specific timeline and is planning on getting rid of it

    • Miketrapper04

      @MICHAEL BECKET honestly I think the Fnaf lore is so stupidly convoluted that he could’ve also cloned himself aswell, I am saying he’s palpatine because they keep bringing him back, they shouldn’t he should be dead


      @prince BUT WAIT THEIRS MORE *spits everywhere profusely* BUT THIS ONES A WHOPPA!!!!!!


      @Don't read profile photo its cool i cant finish it anyways unless i click on it

  • [Møošhrøømš]

    In the last episode Gregory stuttering when saying “I’m Gregory” it could’ve been C.C making up a new name as the animatronics could’ve known about the bite of 83 and so Freddy dosent get suspicious if he did know

    • kickbro smasher

      That doesn't make sense. First off if he was crying child and not a robot wouldn't he have gotten older?

    I really love this content, I listen to this to sleep since it’s interesting and enjoyable! Keep it up

  • gianni$

    I spotted something about the “new eyes”. Gregory was able to see Vanessa but the other animatronics, no. Freddy was able to see Vanessa with his new eyes. These eyes are Roxy's. So this may mean that Roxy could also see Vanessa.

    Just realized you said that Gregory going into the charging station was evidence, but it really isn't because the reason you need to is to avoid the Daycare Attendant, and if you choose to stay in the Pizzaplex, then it makes sense still why Gregory would because he is piloting Freddy or at the very least is riding in him.

    I love this because my first thought was “yah that’s a cool theory that Gregory is Crying Child it would be cool if it were true but I’m not totally convinced” however now after watching this video I’m thinking “I hope the backlash to MatPat’s theory doesn’t make them scrap all their plans to reveal this in the next game because this was definitely their plan”

    Very cool. Though theres something I'd like to note, apparently, theres two "missing" CDs the player cant catch in normal gameplay because they're bugged.

  • CheeseOh

    5:18 gotta love when the community is hypocritical. Telling matpat its not ok to use cut dialogue for theories, yet they can use them to debunk his theories. Yeah that makes perfect sense

  • Amebra

    Could I just mention the fact that when you bring Freddy into ‘the Endo room’ that Gregory says this “I don’t know, I’m a kid!” It slightly messes with this theory because technically Gregory isn’t a complete child. Gregory then proceeds to mention leaving the room. Now to mention the vision change: Gregory might be half robotic, meaning he is able to charge in the recharge station with Freddy and his eyes may also be robotic. Or more specifically, camera lenses that somehow go weird when Vanny approaches.

  • Алексей Радченко
    Алексей Радченко

    8:42 when Gregory and Freddy see Vanny, Gregory asks Freddy if he saw a girl in the bunny costume, wich means that Gregory CAN see Vanny, unlike Freddy. So if they are both robots, why would chip work differently on them?

    Steel wool kinda just covered the franchise in unknown brown mud so i feel like the reason Gregory seems so robotic is also because he’s just a bad character, so he comes off as un relatable and like flat. But I really agree with this theory and anything that can make Security Breach seem interesting at all is more than the actual lore this game had.

    I feel bad that MatPat gets absolutely slandered for his theories. These are very entertaining to watch. Whether right or wrong, there are different way to tell him he's wrong besides banishing him to twitter hell. Keep making these theories Mat. They're Great. Edit: How did I get SO many likes on this???????????

    • AggroBlu

      @Santino King I just hate how every theory is clearly baity- like some outrageous theory that doesn’t really make sense but evidence is there so it *must* be true and *must* be argued- or instantly hops onto some new trending game and you can’t watch a new game without ‘wait till matpatt sees this’- or both. I used to watch this channel, popped onto this video to check if they suck as much as I remember, and I think I’ll avoid watching again :/

    the fact that they cut the lines about gregory bleeding could just as easily be seen as the writers not wanting to confuse the theorists of the world into thinking gregory is human. if they intend gregory to be an animatronic or cyborg or whatever, the lines about him bleeding would muddy that intention, even if they do also intend to imply that he CAN in fact bleed and pass as human.

    The “random animatronic endo ” in the blob could have been golden Freddy’s (explaining why he cannot move around like the others in previous games) also telling us that since only one eye is light means the one spirit in him has left (the crying child) and the vengeful spirit is still there, explaining why William Afton is still alive at the end of the game. I hope you see this Mat Pat!! Keep up the great work!!

    Dont forget the fact that freddy didnt see vanny at the beginning of the game when they first encounter her. She skips by their charging booth and gregory asks freddy "did you see that?" To which freddy responds "thats a fountain." Just a little side note to show how freddy didnt see her prior to his eye upgrade

  • WynneL

    I mean, considering the Game Over screen, I just always took it for granted that Gregory was a synthetic of some kind. Why wouldn't there be blood or any splootchy thudding sounds? The mechanical nature of Gregory's 'death' with all the static means something very fishy is going on, at the very least.

    In some other videos it has been theorized that "the person who dosent talk" is also Vanessa just in her "Vanny" persona. There are a lot of parallels. She hates flowers, refuses candy and other odd things that are the opposite of her behavior that we see on the tapes... like an exact opposite, all the therapists also eventually end up dead. Implying that they are getting too close to Vanessa and figuring out what's really going on so as "Vanny" is controlled by Afton she kills them and I believe even laughs about it on said tapes. It's theorized that we play as Vanessa in Help Wanted and after he takes over her consciousness she moves locations to bring Afton to this location and enact his final plan hence why she says she was needed elsewhere.. just something else to think about

  • SkylightCiel

    I really love this from a thematic pov but I just don't think anyone knows the why. Why would the crying child be an animatronic and why would Elizabeth be Vanny. The game does a really poor job at showing us who those characters even are anyhow.

  • Y’vaan

    Little late to the party on this video but something always bugged me about the 3 star ending. It makes sense that you’d see the Vanny mask on the ground but why the ribbon too? Just seems like an odd detail that those were the only two parts of the costume to see on the ground

  • Sterling Hazelton
    Sterling Hazelton

    If he hadn't known already, I'm pretty sure he'd figure out he was robot when he got the magnet. He also takes fazerblasts with no visual trouble, same with vanny and vannessa. No reason to change the first name if you assume she kept her last name the same too.

    I get the impression that the events of VR onward is the “real world” and the previous games were creations of an indie developer meant to “obscure the truth”. So I can see that these recent events don’t necessarily need to line up with every detail of the past.

    I really like the theory of Gregory being the crying child because it means that he overcame his fear and he’s literally best friends with what used to make him so scared. It means that Afton didn’t win, and The brothers can finally get some peace

  • Mika

    I always thought that the reason Gregory has no records in the database is well... because he's shown in one of the endings to be homeless. Literally sleeping in an alleyway inside of a cardboard box. I feel like that's the simplest answer to that question and the one most strongly implied by the game. Furthermore, I don't really see much evidence for the Gregory being a robot theory apart from anything that can't also be explained away either as some sort of stylistic choice or by a much simpler, not secretly being a robot, answer. I know I'm late to the whole conversation but just wanted to put that out there because I don't really see anyone else in the comment section saying that. Great video, tho! Enjoyed it.

    Also can I just say it’s very interesting that right after the first graphic novel version of the original fnaf books came out we got A game with multiple endings that were in the comic book style granted the endings and questions that were in that art style weren’t considered the ““ Cannon ending the one that was in the same art style as the rest of the game was the cannon ending so first thought it was probably the game designers way of telling us that this is the ending that is actually can into the lore but you could also say that because they chose the comic book style to represent the other ending maybe there canon to the book trilogy? Also I don’t mind pointing out that the art style is very similar in the graphic novels and in the endings which is probably how I first thought of this

  • Xenai Oaks

    Elizabeth and Evan(Cc) were probably William's favourite children. Michael seem to differ. Liz did love her father's animatronics, especially Circus Baby. Evan (Cc) also love the animatronics, his being Henry's suit Golden Freddy. Glitchtrap being William, he probably mind controlled Vanessa due to her resemblance to his daughter. And because he's still a genius, was able to help her create her suit to make her invisible to the other animatronics.
